Bio - Lura Scroggins (1906-1949)

Adair Project

AH-05 - Lura Scoggins

6 October 1906 - August 1949


Lura Scoggins was born on 6 October 1906 in Georgia[i],[ii]; she died in August 1949 in Georgia, at age 42.[iii],[iv] She was buried in Pleasant Hill Baptist Church Cemetery, Austell, Cobb County, Georgia[v],[vi].

She is the third child and third daughter of George Scoggins (1875-1955), aged 31, and Minnie Estelle Jackson (1880-1978), aged 26. Her two older siblings were Bertha (b. 1901) and Nora (b. 1903).

"Historic" Milton County, Georgia, c. 1910
Map courtesy Georgia Info 
In the 1910 Census, "Lurie" is living with her father, mother, and three sisters. A third sister, Fannie Lou, was born in January of 1910. Her father rented and farmed in Crossville, Milton County, GA. (Milton County was abolished and merged into Fulton and Cobb counties in 1932.)[vii] Also, living with the family was George’s brother, Choice.

Also of interest, is that the 1910 Census (15 April) reported that Lurie was four-years-old, implying she was born in 1905. This is inconsistent with all other information regarding Lura’s birth. I believe this implied birth year to be in error even though I usually consider the first census a person is recorded in as correct regarding birth year.

Over the next decade three more siblings were born. First Cleo in 1912, then Lee Bell in 1914, and finally a brother, James S was born in 1917.

The 1920 Census finds Lura’s father renting and farming a farm on Crass Road in Gritter Township, Cobb County, Georgia. The family consisted of George and Minnie and five of the children; eighteen-year-old Bertha is no longer at home. It is interesting to note that although the three oldest children can read and write, none of the four school-age children are attending school. ,[viii]

The 1920s must have been good to the Scoggins family; George earned enough to be able to buy a farm on Brownsville Road in Powder Springs, GA, where they were enumerated in the 1930 Census.,[ix] Another sister, Lillian, was born in 1923. 1930 finds Lura and two of her sisters were working the farm while the three youngest siblings were attending school.

The 1930s turned into a trough time for Lura. Actually, she had one of the roughest lives of anyone I’ve ever researched. She married[x] Elmer Adair (~ 1910-?) in Cobb County, Georgia, on 15 April 1931.[xi] That August, Elmer went to prison for a year. After his release, Lura began having children – four of them before Elmer abandoned her. In 1939 Elmer went to prison for another year, this time for abandonment. Elmer escaped the minimum security facility and was then arrested for another crime while an escapee. He was returned to prison.

During the 1940 Census, the 31-year old (she’s getting younger) Lura is living with her parents and is identified as a widow. Her husband is actually alive but in prison. With her are four of her children. Also living with George and Minnie is Lynell Bell, a grandson who is apparently daughter Lillian’s child. Lura is listed as working as farm labor.[xii]

Another three children, all boys, are born for a total of seven children, four boys and three girls to Elmer and Lura,

In 1945, Elmer and Lura are back together and living at 553 Washington, SW, in Atlanta. Elmer is a driver for the Benton Transportation Company. [xiii] Benton Trans. Co was an over the road trucking company.


Lura died in 1949. Funeral services were held at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church on 7 August 1949. Internment was to be at the church cemetery.

Children of Elmer and Lura were:

  • Ruth Adair (1934-????).[xiv]
  • Geraldine Adair,, (1935-????)
  • Living Adair. [xv]
  • Wilma Adair (1939-????)
  • Troy D. Adair (1941-2011)
  • Living Adair.
  • Living Adair.

Bio - Everett Anson Bickford (1876-1957)

WB-06 - Everett Anson Bickford

15 October 1876 - 1957


Everett Anson Bickford[i] was born on 15 October 1876 in Readfield, Kennebec County, Maine[ii], died in 1957 in Maine, aged 80[iii]. He was buried in Auburn, Androscoggin County, Maine, at Mount Auburn Cemetery[iv].

He is the son of Anson W Bickford (1852-?), aged 23, and Jennie C Bickford, aka Jane (1840-< 1910), aged 36.

The following information is also recorded for Everett:


  • Occupation: Grocer, Real Estate Insurance Agent (See below).
  • In September 1918 his physical description was: Medium Height, Medium Build, Blue Eyes, Brown Hair (per draft registration).
  • He completed 4 Years of High School (per 1940 Census)

Life Events for Evert Anson Bickford:


Everett was the fifth of eight children. His older siblings included Nettie, Ralph, Edward, and Matilda. Estella was born in 1879.

The 1880 census shows the three-year-old Everett living with his parents and five siblings in Readfield, Maine.

His sister Maude was born in 1883, and his sister Erna was born in 1884.

The 1900 census shows the 23-year-old Everett living with his parents and three sisters, Nettie, Maude, and Erna, in Auburn, Maine. Everett is working as a clerk in a grocery.

He married Ada Marie Chase (1876-bef. 1940), the daughter of George W and Emma Chase on 30 October 1905 in (Maine)[v]. They both were 29.

63 Winter, Auburn, Maine - Image courtesy Google
Everett’s mother died sometime between 1900 and 1910. Everett’s father, Anson, came to live with Everett, his wife Ada and their daughter Catherine for the 1910 Census. They lived at 63 Winter St[vi], in Auburn, Maine, a place they would live for many years. Everett was a grocery merchant, employed other individuals and owned his home. Trulia and other home sites indicate that the home at this location was built in 1920. Either they are wrong or another house was there and was replaced by the current home in 1920. In either event, they remained at 63 Winter into the 1940s.

Everett registered for the draft on 12 September 1918.[vii]

In the 1920 Census, Anson is no longer living with the family and three more daughters were born between 1910 and 1920, Beatrice, Emma, and Phyllis. Everett is now working own account as a Real Estate Insurance agent.[viii]

In the 1930 Census, Catherine had moved out but Everett and his wife are still living with their three youngest daughters. Everett is still a Real Estate Insurance agent. [ix]

The 1935 City Directory indicates that Everett is the proprietor of E. A. Agency and his home address is still 63 Winter.[x] [xi]

The 1940 Census indicated that Everett is now a widower. The 64-year-old is still the proprietor of a real estate company. The daughters have all moved out. Living at the same address is a renter, Josephine Abbott, a 71-year-old widow.[xii]

Albany Awakens to the Benefits of Exploitation


Donna in Albany, NY, at the Clinton Theater – Sep 20-26, 1920

Albany Awakens to the Benefits of Exploitation


I was watching the live stream from RootsTech Friday.  Lisa Louise Cooke gave an awesome presentation on “Proven Methodology for Using Google for Genealogy.” I use Google all the time and use many advanced techniques, but Lisa’s talk reminded me of some ways to use Google I haven't used in ages, and should.

I went back to my current research topic, my grandmother’s vaudeville career. Based upon Lisa's suggestions, I thought about Donna's 1920 show,  "The California Bathing Girls in a Beach Promenade." I searched using both phrases and the year of interest, 1920. Also, I eliminated my blog site from the results Googling this:

"California Bathing Girls" "beach promenade" 1920
-site:http://blog.dtaylorgenealogy.com

Amazingly, the search returned 5 results. Two of the results I had seen before. One was to a missing/parked domain. But two of them went to magazines that referenced Donna’s show. One of the articles was an absolute gem in the “Motion Picture News” about how Albany, NY was awakening to a multi-focused advertising campaign.[i] The movie “Up in Mary’s Attic” was the foundation of the advertising, which promoted the “California Bathing Girls.”  The ‘Girls were used to promote going to California. And a great way to get to California and see the girls was to enlist in the Army. They had large displays of the Attic with silhouettes of the girls in bathing suits, motor cycles cruising the streets advertising both the movie and joining the Army. Last, but not least, they used aeroplanes to drop advertisements of the show over the city. Say what?  Yes, the Army dropped flyers about the movie, the girls, and joining the Army. With Donna’s experience back in 1915 dropping flyers about “Birth of a Nation,” I wonder if she was involved with the idea of using air-drops as a means of advertising.  I would like to think she was.

Motion Picture News, October 2, 1920, Page 2601

Finally, I set up a Google Alert of that query to learn if anything new is added to the Internet in the future. Thanks again to Lisa Louise Cooke and RootsTech for reminding me of ways to better utilize Google and find genealogical gems. (pun intended).

Tracing 19th Century Women & Sally Ann (?) Darling.

Tracing early 19th Century Women 


Tracing women in early 19th century history can often be a difficult process. Women often didn’t exist except in the context of their wifely status. Such is the case of Sally Ann (unknown) Darling.  She is only mentioned in a couple documents that I have found, so far. I first encountered her name when I found the obituary of her son, Rufus Holton Darling, which mentioned that he is the son of Abner and Sally Darling. I also traced her husband, Abner Darling. That search yielded his will, which made Sally Ann the executrix.  It mentions nothing other than her name. It doesn’t even mention the names of their children.  In court, men attested to the validity of the will and it doesn’t appear that she ever addressed the court. The 1840 Census shows that Rufus H Darling is living at the same location (based on neighbors) that Abner Darling lived at before. Living with him was an older woman that I presume is Rufus’s mother – Abner’s wife – Sally Ann. Sadly, that is about the extent of what I have learned about Sally Ann.

Bio – Sally Ann (Unknown) Darling (c. 1780-aft 1840?)


1780 – Birth – The 1840 Census infers that she was 50-59 years old suggesting a birth year of 1780-1790. The 1830 Census infers that she was 40-49 years old also.
1820 – Appears to be living with husband, Abner Darling, and 7 children in Paris, New York.[i]
1830 – Appears to be living with husband, Abner Darling, and 8 children in Clarkson, New York.[ii]
1839 – Sally’s husband Abner dies. She is made executrix of the will and inherits everything. She is living in Clarkson, New York.[iii]
1840 – Apparently living with son, Rufus H Darling, and four other children in Clarkson, New York. [iv] 
I have been unable to find Sally in the 1850 Census.

List of Greats

  1. 12. Rufus Harry Darling (1857-1917) 
  2. 24. Rufus Holton Darling (1816-1857)
  3. 49. Sally Ann [Darling] 


Further Action

  • ·      I am further researching for Rufus Holton Darling’s siblings.  Hopefully, results of that search will provide additional information or clues regarding Sally Ann.
  • ·      Third cousins on the Darling DNA profile would share Abner and Sally Ann as common ancestors to my mother-in-law.  Following clues there may help open this new brick wall.

Not everything is on the Internet – Arthur R Hatfield (1865-1931)

Ordering certificates 'cause not everything is on the Internet


Wall with gate.

One of the big genealogical research problems relates to making the jump between 1900 and 1880.  Without the 1890 Census, it can often be difficult to make the leap and it seems like a wall that needs to be overcome.  Sometimes there is a gate that takes you past the wall, sometimes the gate is locked. Such is the case with my Hatfield project.

Arthur R Hatfield was born in May 1865 in Indiana.[i] The Census indicates that both his parents were born in Indiana as well and that is all we know. No parents’ names, or anything else.

Arthur married Rebecca Leona Crawford on 29 Mar 1893 in Holt County, Missouri.[ii] Leona, as she was known, was born in Holt County. The couple lived in Holt County through the births of their first two sons Clyde Raymond Hatfield (1894-1959) and Guy C. Hatfield (1875-1964.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to use census or other records available on-line to determine his parents. That means back to the not-on-line resources. First, we’ll order a death certificate from Nebraska and see if that yields any information.  Next, we try to order a marriage certificate from Missouri and see if that yields any information.  Either way, we are off the internet using “old school” methods. Here is what I think I know about Arthur Hatfield.

------------- 

RH12 - Arthur R Hatfield (1865-1931) 

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 7


Arthur R Hatfield was born in May 1865 in Indiana[iii]. He died in 1931[iv]. When he was 27, he married Rebecca Leona Crawford, daughter of Charles Crawford and Margaret Rebecca Collins, on 29 Mar 1893 in Holt, Missouri, USA[v].

Wakefield, Dixon County, Nebraska

via Wikipedia Commons
Arthur R Hatfield was enumerated, in the 1900 Census, being in Wakefield, Dixon County, Nebraska.)[vi]. Hew was the head of the household, a farmer renting his farm. He could read, write, and speak English. With him are his wife their two boys, Clyde and Guy.

During the 1910 Census he lived in Daily, Dixon County, Nebraska. He was the Head of the household and married. With are his wife and two sons.  Also living in the house hold are a border, Lura Harrington, and a hired man, Silas Foster. I can’t tell if they moved between 1900 and 1910. Wakefield and Daily, Nebraska, are only about 15 miles apart and there are no towns between them. I’ll need to do a neighbor analysis to determined if they moved. In any event, Arthur was a farmer and renting his farm.[vii]

I have been unable to find Arthur in the 1920 Census. His wife, Leona, is living with their son, Guy, in Dry Creek, Pierce County, Nebraska. With them are a niece and a nephew of Guy, Leona and Albert Crawford.[viii]

The 1930 Census shows Arthur and Leona living together again in North Dry Creek, Pierce County, Nebraska. Again, he is the head of the household who is farming on a rented farm. Living with Arthur and Leona is a hired hand, Harry(?) Bau.[ix]

Arthur R Hatfield died in 1931. He was buried in Pleasant View Cemetery, Plainview, Pierce County, Nebraska[x]. We have ordered a copy of his death certificate to confirm the date and place.

Children

Arthur R Hatfield and Rebecca Leona Crawford had the following children:

1.    Clyde Raymond Hatfield was born on 04 Jan 1894 in Mound City, Holt, Missouri, USA.[xi] He died on 06 Apr 1959 in Plainview, Pierce, Nebraska, USA (in a hospital.)[xii]. He married Ruth Barrett between 04 Jan 1912-05 Jun 1917.[xiii]

2.     Guy C Hatfield was born on 08 Aug 1895 in Missouri, USA[xiv]. He died in 1957 in Los Angeles County, California, USA.[xv] He did marry a Mildred, surname unknown, date unknown.[xvi]

Further Actions

Order death certificate for Arthur R Hatfield. (Underway.)
Order marriage certificate for Arthur R Hatfield and Rebecca Leona Crawford.
Do a "neighbor analysis" to determine if Arthur & Leona moved between 1900 and 1910 or if the change of location was due to census districting.
Find Arthur’s parents names. (Key Goal)
Find Arthur in the 1880 and 1870 censuses.
