This chapter is dedicated in memory of Nelle Goring Cooke 1924-2005

Ira Scalf, son of John Scalf Sr. and Edeah (Edy) Carlisle was born 1812 – 1814 in either Floyd County, Kentucky or Russell County, Virginia. It is unknown for certain in which location his parents were living during the time Ira was born.

This photograph of Ira Scalf was originally in the possession of Hattie Scalph, the wife of Ora Scalph. Copies of this photograph have been available to the genealogical community for several years, but their authenticity was never certain. Over the years, several Ira Scalf descendents from different lines have declared this photograph to be Ira Andrew Scalf. Also, a descendent of Ira Scalf produced this photograph and said it was given to his grandmother by Hattie Bell Chapman, the wife of Ora Scalph, who was a son of Alfred Scalf/Scalph. Alfred was the son of Ira Scalf, and the surname Scalf changed to Scalph during his lifetime. Since Hattie Chapman Scalph, a granddaughter-in-law of Ira Scalf, was born in 1883 and died in 1970 which was well before internet mail made it easy to share photographs, we feel comfortable in saying this photograph is Ira Scalf.

Writings of Elmer D. Scalf on the family of Ira Scalf can be found in the book, Scalf Family History, beginning on page 129 – 170 for comparison.

Writings of Henry P. Scalf on the family of Ira Scalf can be found in the book, Chronicles of the Scalf Family, Chapter IX, Rev. Ira and Rosannah Gibson Scalf.

Ira's father, John Scalf Sr., left Surry County, North Carolina around 1805-1806 and may have traveled through Russell County, Virginia on his way to Floyd County, Kentucky. Ira's father was living in Floyd County, Kentucky at the enumeration of the 1810 census. John Scalf Sr. and his family then appear on the 1820 Russell County, Virginia census.

In August of 1820 Ira was ordered by the court of Russell County, Virginia to be bound out to learn a trade but no records have been found to confirm that Ira was actually removed from the home of his father. The court records of Russell County, Virginia do suggest that Ira's brother William was taken from the home but later returned.

This bit of information does suggest that the John Scalf Sr. family had been living in Russell County, Virginia for at least several years before 1820. It is unlikely that the family had only been there for a few months when the overseer of the poor determined that the children needed to be removed.

It is the opinion of the author that Russell County, Virginia is where Ira married his first wife Rosanna Gibson sometime around 1831 or 1832 although no marriage record appears to exist. Rosanna Gibson was probably a member of the Gibson family from the Russell/Scott County area and some records indicate a possible tie to Tyron Gibson (also spelled Tryon in some records and called Tiry by local natives. However, this has not been researched thoroughly at this time. It is also believed that Rosanna was most likely a descendent of the Melungeon Gibson/Gipson families.

The author has been asked the question by various descendents of this line what is a Melungeon and where did they come from? Therefore, as much information as possible due to the length of this chapter has been written concerning these folks to aid in the research of descendents of Rosanna Gibson Scalf. The author has also spent a good deal of years compiling information on this subject. Due to the length of this chapter excerpts from some of the writings of Jack H. Goins has been relied on for information concerning the folks described as Melungeon.

For more in-depth information on the Gibson Melungeon families the author suggests the book, Melungeons: And Other Pioneer Families by Jack H. Goins, an excellent researcher and friend.

A considerable number of the Gibson/Gipson families were living in the Lee and Scott County, Virginia and Hancock County, Tennessee areas of Blackwater and Newman's Ridge and were labeled Melungeon. According to information gathered during research of these families, the word Melungeon did not necessarily depict a specific race of people.

Vardiman (Vardy) Collins, considered to have been the head Melungeon of the Collins families in this area stated he was of Portagee and Indian descent. Vardy Collins was also known to Joseph Rhea, an early Hawkins County pioneer, as Navarrh or Navarrah.

No one truly knows where the word Melungeon originated or exactly why. However, records of nearby Stony Creek Baptist Church, the first church erected in the Fort Blackmore area of Virginia lists the name Melungins as early as 1813 on page 37 of the Stony Creek Baptist Church Minutes. Early Gibson families were members of the Stony Creek Baptist Church of Fort Blackmore as early as 1802 and then moved to the Blackwater area in the same year. (Melungeons: And Other Pioneer Families, pg. 69, Jack H. Goins)

It was also stated by one old-timer from the area that they were known in this locale as Ramps (Melungeons: And Other Pioneer Families, pg. 66, Goins)

The old-timer referred to was speaking of an area located between Dungannon and Fort Blackmore, Virginia known as Ramp Town.

Shepherd Buck Gibson (also spelled Gipson) is believed to be one of the first Gibson/Gipson families in the area of Hawkins/Hancock Co. Tennessee. Shepherd was the brother-in-law of Vardiman (Vardy) Collins and these two gentlemen are believed to be the progenitors of the original Melungeon families of these particular areas. The word original meaning, the first known inhabitants to the Newman Ridge area known as Melungeon. Jack Goins often lists them as the source Melungeons in his book, which may be a more accurate description than original.

The family of Thomas Gibson of Louisa County, Virginia was in Russell County, Virginia as early as 1802. Rhuebin, Fanny, Henry, Thomas Jr., and Vina Gibson joined the Stony Creek Baptist Church at Fort Blackmore in July of this year. Charles Gibson and wife Mary joined the church just one month prior in June of 1802. (Melungeons: And Other Pioneer Families, pg. 68, Goins)

As Jack Goins stated, these families were living in the Fort Blackmore area as early as 1802. At that time Fort Blackmore was in Russell County, Virginia. Russell County was created in 1786 from Washington County, Virginia. Scott County, Virginia was then created in 1815 from parts of Russell. Fort Blackmore is now located in Scott County.

Most of these families originally came from the Pamunkey River area to Flat River (Orange County) North Caroline and then to the area of Grayson and Russell Counties in Virginia, having lived also in the Wilkes (now Ashe) County, North Carolina area. The author is of the opinion that Rosanna Gibson's family descended from these early pioneers; however, further research will be needed to establish the exact link.

According to the research of Jack Goins, a definition for Melungeon was not even written until 1890 and these early settlers were certainly living in the above-mentioned areas long before 1890.

Much controversy abounds among researchers and scientist today concerning these people. They were a simple people living remotely from society with different traditions, beliefs, and family traits. The original families now being extinct, their descendents are scattered throughout the country today. (Melungeons: And Other Pioneer Families)

It has been theorized by various researchers that they were of Negro, White, Indian and Portuguese heritage as well as various other mixtures but there still remains (in 2007) no concrete evidence available that would definitely place these families in any specific ethnic group.

Joseph Rhea, a prominent citizen and early attorney of Hawkins County, Tennessee states that Vardy Collins was of Portuguese Nationality Joseph was a friend of the children of Solomon Collins as well as the brother-in-law of Bailey Collins, son of Solomon. Joseph spent a good deal of time with these families. This information was passed on in a letter to Mary Collins, a niece of Joseph Rhea.

We can think of no reason that Joseph Rhea would have made these statements other than to inform his niece of her ancestors. Joseph's sister Melissa Rhea had married Bailey Collins son of Solomon Collins and knew the families intimately and no doubt recalled the information from what he had been told.

Records reveal that Vardy Collins (brother-in-law of Shepherd Gibson/Gipson) was living in Ashe County, North Carolina at the time of the enumeration of the 1810 census but was living on Newman's Ridge by 1812 in what was then Hawkins County, Tennessee and later Hancock. This area was and still is to some extent, a very isolated region coursing through the Blackwater (Scott/Lee Co) Virginia area and into Hancock County, Tennessee.

Many theories abound concerning the people known as Melungeon and why they chose Newman's Ridge as their home. The research of Jack Goins documents their earliest known beginnings on the Pamunky River in Virginia where the Saponi Indians were living. It is a matter of record that many of these families traveled down the New River Valley area of Virginia and North Carolina through Washington and Russell County, Virginia before finally settling on Newman's Ridge.

Having lived in the East Tennessee area for the majority of my life and having known a number of descendents of these families, it is the opinion of the author that the research of Jack Goins holds more logic than any other read by this author. Jack's book is highly recommended to anyone interested in the Melungeon heritage. Especially, for research of the Collins, Gibson, Minor, and Goins name, just to mention a few.

The parents of Rosanna Gibson Scalf have not been determined at this time. However, research is ongoing. It is stated in Scalf Family History, page 129 that Ira married Rosanna in 1832 in either Russell County, Virginia or Hawkins County, Tennessee. The author believes they most likely married in Virginia. The 1833 tax list of Russell County, Virginia suggests that Ira was head of house in 1833, for he was taxed on one white poll, which would have been Ira himself.

Chapter IX of Chronicles of the Scalf Family, by Henry P. Scalf states that Rosanna was an inmate of an orphanage in South Carolina. The following is an excerpt from that chapter.

He married Rosanna Gibson who had been an inmate of a South Carolina Methodist Church orphanage. Date of the marriage was about 1833 or 1834. Rosanna and her brother David, their parents' names unknown, were not living in the orphanage at the time of the marriage, died sometime around 1852 in Claiborne County, Tennessee along with her last child, Pacify, etc… (Chronicles of the Scalf Family, Chapter IX)

The following is an excerpt from Chronicles of the Scalf Family:

Tradition is consistent that Rosanna Gibson Scalf was of dark complexion, this physical trait descending to her children and grandchildren. Her life was marked with hardship and high courage in rearing her family. She was born in Virginia in 1814 and was about 20 years of age at the time of her marriage, two years younger than her husband. The mother of Rosanna was also of dark skin and hair and said to be clairvoyant by her family and neighbors, She predicted her own death. Within three years, scratched the date on the bottom of a pewter place and showed it to her daughter Rose.

Nothing is preserved by tradition relative to Rosanna's father so we assume that at the time of the prediction of her mother's death was made, he was already deceased. Naturally, the children, facing the impact of their mother's prediction, talked to the neighbors. The old witch-hunt psychosis was still lingering and the aroused neighbors charged Mrs. Gibson with being a witch. Under the threat of a trial or ill treatment from the neighbors, the mother gathered her children and what possessions she could carry and fled. There is evidence, deduced from tradition that the family was living in either Virginia or North Carolina at the time.

Fleeing south with her children, Mrs. Gibson finally domiciled in South Carolina. There, true to her prediction, it is said, she died, followed by two other children, leaving Rosanna and David. The latter two were placed in a Methodist Church orphanage. It is only a folk tradition but may have a background of truth. Like many folk stories it conflicts with the record. Rosanna Gibson, according to census records, was born in Virginia.   

The statements above by Henry P. Scalf were made from legend passed down in the Ira Scalf family. We have been unable to confirm that Rosanna or David were in South Carolina although we also cannot deny it. As stated by Henry, we believe there is a remnant of truth in the legend; however, no supporting evidence has been found as of this date.

Recall the above information by Jack Goins. The family of Thomas Gibson of Louisa County, Virginia was in Russell County, Virginia as early as 1802. Rhuebin, Fanny, Henry, Thomas Jr., and Vina Gibson joined the Stony Creek Baptist Church at Fort Blackmore in July of this year. Charles Gibson and wife Mary joined the church just one month prior in June of 1802. (Melungeons: And Other Pioneer Families, pg. 68, Goins)

Considering that the above Gibson/Gipson families were in Russell County in 1802, we believe that Rosanna's father could have been a son or grandson of any of the above families. However, this is only speculation and further research is needed to determine the line of Rosanna Gibson Scalf.

Some stories state that Rosanna and her last child, Pacify, died of measles and some state they died of cholera or typhoid, which was rampant in that area during the 1850's. This disease wiped out complete families in the Russell County area and other areas as well.

By 1840 we find the Ira Scalf family living in Hawkins County, Tennessee. Ira and Rosanna had four sons at the enumeration of this census. The two oldest sons were born 1830 – 1835, which suggest that Ira and Rosanna were married around 1832 or early 1833.

We know from the property records of Claiborne County, Tennessee that Ira was living in Hancock County, Tennessee by1849. Hancock was created from Hawkins in 1844 and made official around 1846 or 1847. Ira was living in the area of Hawkins County that became Hancock County and from records appears to have lived there since 1839.

Land records of Claiborne County, Tennessee reveal that Ira bought 12 acres from Phillip Keck on December 5, 1849. The deed states that Ira Scalf was of Hancock County, Tennessee at this time and Phillip Keck was of Claiborne County. Ira paid $50.00 for this land and the land was part of a 100-acre tract conveyed by Evans and Casey to Phillip Keck earlier. The description of this land reads as follows:

Beginning on a locust and Said Kecks line thence S 20 E 90 poles to a Stake, thence Eastwardly to a Stake a conditional line made between said Hopers thence with said line to a poplar thence to the Beginning. Phillip Keck signed by mark (X). The witnesses were Elijah Goin and William Scalf.  (Link to deed - Page 1 & Page 2)

This would not have been Ira's brother who was known to Scalf descendents as William #2, if the statement made by Patsy Counts Scalf in Hawkins County in 1845 is correct. Patsy stated that William #2 had died by 1845. Ira purchased the land in 1849 but the deed was not registered until 27 May 1856 at 5 o'clock p.m. This alone would rule out this William being Ira's brother. The William who signed this deed died 1852-1854 and his widow Talitha Scalf remarried by 1854 to Cornelius (Neil) Trent.

Land deed records of Claiborne County, Tennessee also show that Ira bought property from John Keck in Claiborne County. The date was January 6, 1850 in the amount of $16.45. This land was located on the south side of the Powell River, containing 50 acres more or less. This was mountain land for the most part and was probably much poorer land than the 12 acres Ira had bought from Phillip Keck considering the price Ira paid for this land. The description of this land is as follows:

Beginning on a Locus thence with a conditional line made between John Hopper and Thomas Hopper to Hezekiah Hoppers corner on the grant line from thence with the top meanderings of the top of the Apalachee Ridge to a post Oak corner made by William P. Yadon and John Keck thence with a conditional line made by the said William P. Yadon and John Keck, to a Sugar tree in the hollow below the Ivy Spring thence on a conditional line to a Stake on Harmon Hoppers line from thence to the Beginning. (Claiborne County Deed Book) (Link to deed - Page 1 & Page 2)

The witnesses to this deed were Levi Goins, L. L. Harrell and V. Meyers. This deed was not recorded until 23 May 1856. John Keck acknowledged the deed on October 29, 1855.

Rosanna was still living when Ira bought the land in Claiborne County in 1849 and 1850. However, she had died at the time Ira registered the deed in May of 1856. This land appears to have been located near or in Tazewell, Tennessee. From the information listed above, it appears that Ira and Rosanna had moved from Sneedville (Hancock Co) Tennessee to Tazewell (Claiborne Co) Tennessee. Claiborne County had been formed much earlier than Hancock so this was a definite move and not a boundary change.

Considering the fact that Ira sold both parcels of land in Claiborne County around 1856, along with the fact that no other deeds were found of Ira purchasing more land, suggests that Ira and his second wife, Nancy Killion McVey, could have moved over to Clay County, Kentucky around 1856.

Ira had purchased the land before Rosanna died but did not register the deed until after his marriage to Nancy. Since the deeds were not registered until 1856, it is believed that Ira sold the property at this time. However, the author had no luck in finding a deed of sale for the property. Ira and Nancy probably lived there until this time then moved over to Clay County, Kentucky where Ira's son, Miles, married his second wife in 1857.

It is believed that Ira, along with his father John Sr., had left Russell County, Virginia and made a trip to Kentucky where Ira's son, David Crockett Scalf was born. This was sometime between December of 1834 and July of 1835. The last record found of John Scalf Sr. in Russell County, Virginia was dated December 1834 and the last record found of Ira in Russell County, Virginia was July of 1835.

On the 1850 census of Claiborne County, Tennessee Ira and Rosanna stated that Miles J. Scalf was 16 years old. This estimates Miles birth date to around 1834. Ira might have gone to Kentucky during this time and Miles was born there. However, Ira was back in Russell County, Virginia by 1835 and David C. Scalf is listed as the next son born in 1835 in Virginia. However, David consistently stated he was born in Kentucky.

The Russell County, Virginia tax lists of 1833 – 1850 contributed by Sharon Carter, confirms that Ira Scalf was living in Russell County 1833 and 1835. He disappears from the tax list in 1834 and was not found listed after 1835.
Considering this information it is possible that Ira's son Miles could have been born in 1834 in Kentucky and David C. born 1836 in Kentucky. It appears that the Scalf family was moving back and forth between Virginia and Kentucky during this time. The following tax list reveals the location of Ira's family.

In July of 1835 the sheriff of Russell County, Virginia confiscated property belonging to Ira Scalf, which was thought to belong to John Scalf, Sr; however, it was proven that the property belonged to Ira and Ira was compensated. This was the last record found of Ira Scalf in Russell County, Virginia.

David C. Scalf was the last child born to Ira and Rosanna in Virginia in 1835 according to the information Ira and Rosanna gave on the 1850 census and Wesley was the first child born in Tennessee around 1837.

The 1836 tax list of Clay County, Kentucky reveals that Ira was living on Otter Creek in Clay County in this year. Ira's son, David C. Scalf always stated he was born in Kentucky. His birth record states he was born 1838 in Kentucky but Ira was not found in Kentucky in 1838 although he might have still been living there.

Ira did not appear on the tax lists there in 1837 or 1838. Ira was not found in Russell County, Virginia or in Kentucky during the years of 1837 and 1838. Interestingly, his brother Jesse and father, John Scalf, Sr. were living on Otter Creek in 1836 and listed on the same tax list. We believe this to be John Scalf Sr. and not John Jr. because the tax lists of Russell County, Virginia show John Scalf Jr. still in Russell County. We do not believe John Jr. left Russell County until his move to Hawkins County. The 1836 tax list of Clay County also suggests that Ira was renting the property on Otter Creek for it was entered in the name of J. Jackson.

The school population census of 1839 in Hawkins County, Tennessee reveals that Ira was living there by 1839.

Recall in the pension file of John Scalf Sr., it was stated that John Sr. spent several years in Kentucky between the time he left Russell County, Virginia (1834-1835) and his move to Hawkins County, Tennessee (1838-1839).

Ira was picked up again beginning in 1839 in Hawkins County, Tennessee.

The School Population Census, known as the Squires Ledger from Hawkins County, Tennessee finds Ira in Hawkins County in1839 where he has one child of school age. No Scalf was listed on the school census in 1840.

The household census records reveal that Ira was still living in Hawkins County in 1840.

Ira is again found in 1841 on the school census and followed through 1847 with the exception of the year 1843 when Ira is either missing from the list or the list for that year was missing.

1841

Ira Scalf   2

By 1841, Miles and David were both in school. Using the school census as a guide, we could conclude that Miles and David were born 1833 and 1835. The age for children to begin school at this time was 6 years old. Ira was again missing in 1843 but this could be due to the fact the list was very difficult to read. Ira might have been listed this year as well but Sharon was unable to read the name.

Ira now has three children in school. This would be Miles, David and Wesley. If the ages were correct on the 1850 census, Miles would be 10, David, 9 and Wesley 7 at this time.

Ira now has four children in school. Green B. was born in 1839 and was now 6 years old.

Ira still has four children in school but Chary has now reached school age as she was born in 1840 according to the 1850 census but might have been born 1841 since Ira has four children in school instead of five.

Hancock County

1847

Iry Scalf 3

In 1847, Ira only has three children in school. This suggests that a child either dropped out of school or had died and possibly more than one since Ira should have had at least six children of school age in 1847. Miles and David had probably dropped out of school to help on the farm as was common at this time. This leaves a total of four children of school age. We believe the three oldest children were not in school at this time. ; 

No Scalf's were listed on the school census after 1847 in Hancock or Hawkins County.

The 1850 tax list of Claiborne County, Tennessee reveals that Ira was taxed there in this year. As can be seen, Ira was taxed in the 11th district in 1850 but the enumeration of the 1850 census shows that he was living in the 10th district by October of 1850.

Ira had bought 12 acres of land in Claiborne County in 1849 from Phillip Keck. The deed stated that Ira was of Hancock County in 1849. He was most likely there in 1848 as well. Claiborne County was created long before Hancock so we know this was not a boundary change but was certainly a move for the Ira Scalf family. It is interesting that the tax list states 13 acres but the land Ira bought from Phillip Keck was only 12 acres.

John Scalf Jr. and William Scalf were taxed in Claiborne County in 1850 and only John Jr. was taxed in 1851. John Jr. also owned 50 acres of land but William was taxed only on himself and did not own property at this time.

Note from the author:  In her deposition taken July 1845 in Hawkins County, Tennessee, Patsy (Counts) Scalf stated that Ira had seven children at this time. This does correlate with the 1850 census of Claiborne County, Tennessee. Therefore, we can safely assume that Miles Scalf was the firstborn child of Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson Scalf.

Ira is again taxed in the same district in 1851 and is shown owning more acreage in 1851 than in 1850. As stated above, Ira had bought the 50 acres from John Keck in 1849. Ira was not found on the tax lists of Claiborne County after this year. However, some of the tax lists did not survive for this period and we believe that Ira was still living there. Ira could have been living in District 10 but owned these parcels of land in District 11; however no other deeds were found for Ira.

Rosanna Gibson Scalf and her daughter, Pacify, are believed to have died either late 1851 or early 1852. This was the year that William Scalf who married Talitha Scalf made his will. William would have been 33 years old at this time and most likely had contracted the same disease as Rosanna and her daughter Pacify.

We then lost track of the Ira Scalf family until 1854 when he married the widow, Nancy Killion McVey. Ira was still living in the Claiborne County area during this time. Nancy was the daughter of William Killion and Ann Coleman and the widow of James McVey. James McVey had been killed at Walter Buchanan's saloon in Tazewell (Claiborne Co) Tennessee. Ira and Nancy were married by Simpson Hurst, J. P. on January 29, 1854 in Claiborne County, Tennessee. (Claiborne County, TN Marriages)

Land deeds discussed above suggest that Ira sold his property and left the area sometime around 1856 – 1858 and moved to Kentucky. In fact, Ira was picked up again on the Knox County, Kentucky tax lists beginning in 1858 and this confirms that Ira and his second wife, Nancy Killion McVey Scalf had moved over to Knox County, Kentucky and was living at Goose Creek. Ira might have been working at the Goose Creek Salt Works at this time along with his son Miles Scalf who was also living at Goose Creek. Ira was followed on the tax lists of Knox County from 1858 through 1870. Ira was missing from the tax lists in three years; these were, 1861, 1862 and 1866; however, this could have been due to missing tax records.

Although Ira could not be found on the 1860 census of Knox or Clay County, Kentucky, the 1860 tax list of Knox County reveals that Ira was still living in Knox County, Kentucky in this year.

Ira and Nancy were not found on the 1860 census of Kentucky but Ira and Rosanna's son Greenberry is found in the home of Ransom Stuart in Kentucky in 1860. Several of the children of Ira and Rosanna had left the home by this time. Although Ira was not found on the 1860 census, he was found on the 1860 tax list. We assume that Ira was missed by the enumerator on the 1860 census.

Ira and Nancy were found on the census records of 1870 living in Knox County, Kentucky. We believe that part of the tax lists were missing for Knox County


1870 Knox CO KY      9 September 1870  Subdivision  #93    Barbourville KY

It is the opinion of the author that Ira died sometime between the enumeration of the 1870 census and the 1872 tax collection of Knox County, Kentucky. The census was enumerated September 9, 1870 but we cannot be certain of the date of the tax collection of 1872 although it is stated in some articles that they were generally taken in the spring but sometimes in the autumn.

1871 Knox County, Tax List --- Ira was not found on the 1871 tax list of Knox County and his wife Nancy did not appear as head of house on this list. Either Ira or Nancy should have been head of house when the 1871 tax collection was taken. Therefore, it is possible that pages were missing from the 1871 tax list that might have listed either Ira or Nancy.

Nancy then appears as head of house on the tax list of 1872 indicating that Ira had died. The best estimation we can make concerning the time of Ira's death is 1870-1872.

1872 Knox County, KY    

Nancy Scalf

1873 Knox County Tax Lists---Nancy was then missing from the 1873 tax list but picked up again on the 1874 tax list. She was not found after 1875 until the enumeration of the 1880 Knox County census where she was found living in Laurel County, Kentucky.

In the middle to late 1870s, Nancy moved from Knox County to Clay County and by 1880 had settled in Laurel County.

Nancy Scalf

Nancy was not found after this year on the tax lists but does appear as head of house in Laurel County, Kentucky in 1880.

Note that Clark, son of Ira and Nancy, is living in the home of his mother in 1880 but listed as a Broton (Broughton). He was also listed as Nancy's brother. Malinda was listed as Nancy's daughter and John D. Broton was listed as Nancy's son. Words in parentheses were inserted by Virgil Scalf to show the actual relationship to Nancy. Please note that the words (Scalf), (in law) and (Son) were not listed on this census.

BROTON (Scalf), Clark Brother (Son) 20 1860 KY TN TN
BROTON, John D. Son   5 1875 KY KY KY

Clark (Charles) Scalf was the son of Ira Scalf and Nancy Killion McVey Scalf. Although the age is off by about two or three years on this census, other records and family legend suggest this is the same Clark Scalf from the 1870 census.

Clark Scalf and Malinda were married April 15, 1881. This appears to have been Malinda's second marriage, and John D. Broton appears to be Malinda's son from her first marriage. Broton should probably be Broughton. It appears the enumerator failed to list Clark as a Scalf or was confused between the names and relationships of the family.

Charles (Clark) Scalf died May 5, 1919 and is buried at the McHargue Cemetery in Laurel County, KY as well as John Scalf.

The family of Ira Scalf and Nancy Killion McVey Scalf will be discussed further on in this chapter.

 

MILES (MILUM) J. SCALF
Son of
Ira Scalf & Rosanna Gibson
Miles<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

Miles J. Scalf, the first child listed on the census records of Ira and Rosanna married first to Catherine Scalf, September 14, 1854, in Claiborne County, Tennessee if the marriage index of Claiborne County, Tennessee is correct. A marriage license did not exist or was not found by this researcher at the Claiborne County Court House.
Catherine is believed to have been the daughter of his uncle, John Scalf Jr. It is assumed Catherine died a short time after her marriage to Miles but no records have been found at this time to confirm this.

In the marriage records of Claiborne County, Tennessee, a marriage is also listed for Miles Scalf and Martha E. Qualls.

According to Nadine Davis Smith in an article listed in the Barbourville Mountain Advocate, Martha Qualls was the daughter of Mary McVey and George Qualls. Mary McVey was the daughter of James McVey and Nancy Killion McVey Scalf. (Nadine Davis Smith-Barbourville Mountain Advocate)  

Mary McVey married George Qualls and they had a daughter, Lucretia Qualls. Lucretia was found living in the home of Miles Scalf and his wife Lucy in 1880 Knox County, Kentucky. Lucretia (age 5) is listed as a niece of Miles Scalf. Mary McVey, daughter of Nancy Killion McVey Scalf would have been a stepsister to Miles. Therefore, Lucretia and Martha (daughters of Mary) would have been step-nieces of Miles Scalf.

It is possible that Martha Qualls, step-niece of Miles was only a witness to the marriage of Miles and Catherine and mistakenly written on the index record as his bride. A marriage was not returned for Miles and Martha; however, just four days later, Miles applied for a license to marry Catherine Scalf, daughter of his uncle, John Scalf, Jr.

Catherine Scalf might have died in the same epidemic that took the lives of Rosanna Gibson Scalf and her daughter Pacify. It is possible that Miles and Catherine divorced; however, no other records have been found of Catherine Scalf.

On the marriage application of Miles Scalf and Martha Qualls, Miles is listed as Miles J. Scalf. On the marriage application of Catherine and Miles he is listed simply as Miles Scalf. This could suggest these were two different people; however, we believe they were the same. The Miles Scalf we have become familiar with and discussed in this chapter was the son of Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson and we know of no other Miles Scalf in the family at this time. The marriage records of Claiborne County list the marriages as follows:

Miles J. Scalf to Martha E. Qualls - July 10, 1854 - Bk 3, pg. 45 (Link to marriage document)

Miles Scalf to Catherine Scalf July 14, 1854 - Bk 3, pg. 48 (Link to marriage document)

The four-day difference in the applications is suspicious for error. An actual marriage license for either Martha or Catherine was not found in Claiborne County, Tennessee by the author. Only the marriage index and applications record this information.

Three years later, Miles married in Clay County, Kentucky to Lucretia (Lucy) Jackson on September 24, 1857. E. W. Murphy performed the ceremony for Miles and Lucy. Hugh Jarvis along with A. Cobb were witnesses. These folks are believed to have been from Hawkins County, Tennessee where Miles had lived with his parents until the move to Kentucky.

Interestingly, Miles was taxed on one poll in Union County, Tennessee in the same year that he married Lucy Jackson in Clay County, Kentucky suggesting that Miles met and married Lucy in Clay County, Kentucky but might have still been living in Union County, Tennessee. We have no specific dates on these tax lists other than the year so we do not know in what month these taxes were collected.

Miles appears on the tax list of 1858 living in Knox County, Kentucky where his father Ira and stepmother Nancy were living. Miles and Lucy continued to make their home in Knox County, Kentucky.

Miles was then found on the tax lists of 1870 through 1875, missing in 1876 through 1878, and listed again in 1879. The tax lists might have been missing for these years as well. Miles and Lucy were then found in 1880 and 1900 still living in Knox County, Kentucky. Neither Miles nor Lucy was found after 1900.

QUALLS, Lucretia Niece   5 1875 KY KY KY

The 1871 tax list reveals that Miles and Lucy had 5 children between the ages of 6 and 20; however, only four have been found on the census records. It is not possible that Lucretia Qualls was living with the family in 1871 for she was not born until 1875 so this was likely a child of Miles and Lucy.

This child would have been born in or before 1871 and died before 1880. Elmer Scalf states that another child was born to Miles and Lucy in 1883. This child was named Bertha. (Scalf Family History, pg. 133)

If Bertha was born 1883, then Miles and Lucy probably had a total of six children with four living and two deceased.

However, Elmer then states on page 134 that Bertha was born 1883 and married J. W. McVey 1899 in Knox County, Kentucky. The marriage record of Bertha Scalf and J. W. McVey confirms this statement. (Marriage Record – BK T, pg. 170 Knox County Marriages - Courtesy of Virgil Scalf) (Link to Marriage Record)

J. W. McVey married as his second wife, Elizabeth Scalf, daughter of Richard Scalf and Phoebe Smith. (1910 census) Richard Scalf was the brother of Bertha Scalf.

The last time we find Miles and Lucy on the census records was 1900 in Knox County, Kentucky. It appears that both Miles and Lucy died between 1900 and 1912. We do know from the marriage record of his son Richard to Susie Hooker that they were both deceased by 1912.

From the 1880 and 1900 census records, we determine that Lucy's full name was Lucretia.  Lucy was used as a short name for Lucretia.

Nancy J.

ROSANNAH ROSIE SCALF
Daughter of
Miles J Scalf & Lucy Jackson
 Rosannah<Miles<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

Rosanna (Rosie) Scalf, daughter of Miles and Lucy, was born about 1860 in Knox County, Kentucky. Rosie was probably named for her grandmother, Rosanna Gibson Scalf. Rosie married Henry Gray around 1875-1880 according to the birth of their first child. Henry Gray was born about 1859 and died about 1942. Rosannah died about 1924. Henry married Amelia Bingham September 16, 1931 but is listed as a widower in the 1940 census. Link to marriage document

Henry Gray was a big man and was listed on historical records as Big Henry Gray.

From what my dad and one of his sisters said, it unfortunately sounds like Henry was somewhat of a harsh man. His wife, Rose, was known to be kind, humble, and a good Christian woman. I recall my aunt Jane saying that when Grandma Rosie was on her deathbed they asked her if she wanted a drink of water and she replied, No, I've just had a cool drink of water from the river of life. She closed her eyes and passed on. What a wonderful testimony of what a woman of faith she must have been. (Courtesy - Gina Gray Matthews)

Mollie Gray, daughter of Henry Gray and Rosanna Rosie Scalf was born after the enumeration of the 1880 census and married before the enumeration of the 1900 census. Due to this time frame, Mollie was not listed on the census records in her parent's home.
Mollie was born September 2, 1880 in Hammond, Kentucky and died at 2 p.m. on January 12, 1945 in Kentucky of bronchopneumonia with underlying factors of chronic bronchitis and asthma. Mollie was 65 years, 4 months and 10 days old.
Mollie married Elijah Smith (no marriage date). Her parents were listed on the death certificate as Henry Gray and Rose Scalf. Mollie was interred at Hinkle Cemetery at Barnyard, Kentucky January 14, 1945. (DC courtesy of Virgil Scalf) (Link to Death Certificate)

NELSON GRAY
Son of
Henry Gray & Rosannah Rosie Scalf
Nelson<Rosannah<Miles<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

Nelson Gray, son of Henry Gray and Rosannah Rosie Scalf, was born April 13, 1889. Nelson married Susan Price. This information was obtained from the 1910 census of Pawnee County, Oklahoma. Nelson was listed as the son-in-law of Samuel Price on this census. Nelson and Susan had been married for four years and had no children at this time.

From the draft registration card of Nelson Gray we learn the date of his birth as well as his description. Nelson was tall and slender with gray eyes and blonde hair. He was 28 years old at the time of the draft.

Nelson (aka Nelce/Nelse) and Susan remained in Pawnee County, Oklahoma. There are no children listed on census records through 1930 other than a nephew and the child of a couple that were boarding with Nelson and Susan in 1920.

Susan's mother had died by 1930 and her father, Samuel Price, was living in the home of Nelson and Susan.

We have no further information on this family.

Lucy Gray, daughter of Henry Gray & Rosannah Rosie Scalf, was born about 1893. Henry Gray gave permission for the marriage between Woodson Jordan and his daughter, Lucy Gray (marriage permission document)  Lucy married Rev Hugh Woodson Jordan on November 7, 1912. Rev Jordan was much older than Lucy and may have died about 1913. However, the 1920 census lists Lucy as married, and she with her son, James M., are living in the home of her parents.

SUSAN SCALF
Daughter of
Miles J. Scalf & Lucy Jackson
Susan<Miles<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

Susan Scalf, daughter of Miles J. Scalf and Lucy Jackson Scalf was born about 1866 according to census records. Susan married Daniel McVey son of James McVey and Nancy Killion McVey Scalf. Daniel was born 1838 in Claiborne County, Tennessee. The spelling of this name can be found as McVey and McVay. We have used the most common spelling found of this name in these writings.

Susan Scalf and Daniel McVey were married February 24, 1888 in Knox County, Kentucky. (BK H, pg. 405 - General Index to Marriages, Knox Co. KY)

This was a second marriage for Daniel. We do not have the name of the first wife of Daniel. His third wife was Vina B. Warren December 18, 1901. Vina was the daughter of John and Amanda Mills Warren. (Newspaper clipping, Barbourville Mountain Advocate - Nadine Davis Smith)

From the 1900 census it appears that either Susan was married prior to her marriage to Daniel or Daniel had a stepdaughter from his previous marriage living in the home. Amelia Cole is in the home and listed as Daniel's stepdaughter. Amelia could have been the daughter of Susan by a first marriage or even a daughter of Daniels first wife. Considering the mistakes made by the enumerators with names we would need descendents of this line to confirm the correct parents of Amelia.

Elmer Scalf states that a son was born to Daniel and Susan in 1894 named Asberry. In 1910 Knox County, Kentucky Daniel's wife is Jane and a son Asberry is in the home.

Daniel stated in 1910 that he had been married three times. We do not know the first wife of Daniel but Susan Scalf was his second wife and they married in 1888. Daniel had been married to Jane (1910 census) for twelve years placing the marriage date around 1898.

We believe Susan Scalf McVey might have died sometime around the birth of Asberry who was born 1894 and Daniel remarried to Jane (maiden name unknown) Mills. Jane stated she had been married twice. In the home are Jane's children by her previous marriage; Harrison, Pearly and Lizzie Mills.

Interestingly, the General Index to Marriages of Knox County, Kentucky lists Amelia Scalf to William McVey, on December 8, 1902, BK J, page 461. This raises speculation as to whether Amelia listed below was the same Amelia who married William McVey

RICHARD SCALF

Richard Scalf was born July 12, 1865 in Kentucky and died March 8, 1947 in Corbin (Whitley County) Kentucky. The death certificate of Richard states he died of cerebral hemorrhage at 7 a.m. due to hypertensive cardiovascular disorder.

Interment for Richard was at the Patterson Cemetery on March 11, 1947 at Barbourville, Kentucky. He was listed as widowed and his wife's name was Ruby Brock Scalf. Richard was 81 years, 7 months and 6 days old at the time of his death. Richard's father was listed as Miles Scalf and mother unknown. M.C. Scalf was the informant.

RICHARD SCALF & PHOEBE SMITH

Richard married first to Phoebe Smith September 6, 1882 in Knox Co. Kentucky. Richard was 17 years old and Phoebe was 24. They were married at the home of Richard's father, Miles (Milum) Scalf. The parents of Phoebe are not listed. (Marriage License – Courtesy of Virgil Scalf) (Link to Marriage License)

According to the marriage dates of Richard Scalf to Phoebe Smith it appears that Elizabeth was the daughter of Richard and Phoebe. Richard's children were listed on the 1898, 1899 and 1900 Knox County School Census. (Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)

Elizabeth Scalf daughter of Richard Scalf and Phoebe Smith was born November 10, 1885 in Kentucky. (1898-1899 School Census – Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)

Elizabeth married James W. McVey and they were found on the 1910 census of Knox County, Kentucky with one child, Sarah. A cousin Julia Jorden was living in the home.

J. W. McVey (James?) had been married prior to his marriage to Elizabeth. J. W. McVey married Bertha Scalf, daughter of Miles and Lucy Jackson Scalf. We believe Bertha died soon after the marriage for J. W. then married Elizabeth sometime around 1900 if this is the same J. (ames) W. McVey.

Note:  James and Elizabeth had been married for 12 years calculating a marriage date of 1900. This would explain why Elizabeth was not in the home of her father in 1900. The school census states her birth date as November 10, 1885. She would have been 15 years old when she married.

RICHARD SCALF & MARY HENSLEY


Richard's first wife, Phoebe Smith Scalf died and Richard then married Mary Hensley, June 19, 1887 Knox County, Kentucky. The marriage license states this was a second marriage for Richard and the first marriage for Mary. Mary was born in Tennessee and her father in North Carolina. Her parent's names were not listed. They were married at the home of Milum (Miles) Scalf. (Marriage License – Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)     (Link to Marriage License)

 

According to the School Censuses, it appears that Martha J. and James were the children of Richard and Mary Hensley Scalf. Elizabeth, daughter of Richard and Phoebe Smith Scalf, was missing from the 1900 school census as well as the household census of that year. However, she was found in 1910 in her own household and was married to J. W. McVey. Elizabeth was the daughter of Richard and his first wife, Phoebe Smith.

MARTHA JANE SCALF
Daughter of

Martha Jane<Richard<Miles<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

Martha J. Scalf, daughter of Richard Scalf and Mary Hensley was born March 25, 1888 in Knox County, Kentucky (Knox County, Kentucky School Census 1898-1899, Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)

Martha married Joe Shorter May 26, 1904 in Knox County, Kentucky. (General Index To Marriages Knox Co. KY – BK I, Pg. 409)

Elmer Scalf states that Joe and Martha had two children; Frank Shorter – born 1909 and died 1944; Rosie Shorter – born 1921 and died 1931. (Scalf Family History, pg. 134-135)

Martha and Joe were found on the 1910 census of Knox County, Kentucky living at Barbourville. They were not found in 1920 but found again in 1930. The census records reveal that Joe and Martha also had a daughter Pearl and a son John H. Scalf. A son Dallas (Spelled Dowie on the census) was in the home at age 18. Martha and Joe also had a daughter named Flossie Mae. Martha was a widow in 1930 and Martha died in 1931.

Martha Scalf Shorter was listed as a widow in 1930. It is believed that Martha died in 1931; however, a Martha Shorter was found on the SS Index who  may have possibly been the wife of Joe Shorter. ;If so, Martha died May 15, 1972.

Martha Shorter listed on the SS Index was born 1877. The 1898 school census states her birth date as 1888 and the 1899 school census states she was born 1889.  These dates are quite different from the SS Index and this Martha Shorter may not be Martha J. Scalf Shorter. ;

The Scalfs of Eastern Kentucky have long been producers of good music. The Scalf Sisters, Eathel and Maude, begin their musical career as children in the late 1930s. Daughters of Will and Cora Smith, the girls performed on guitar and mandolin throughout the area and were constant winners of YMCA, local theater and radio contests, and performed at Renfro Valley. They were later joined by a younger sister, Flossie, who became an adept mandolin player at age six. Will was a good musician and had a fine tenor voice. Cora played the organ, had a strong voice and often sang at funerals. Cora's parents were Frank Smith and Rhoda Ellen Tuttle.   (History and families of Knox County, KY - Eathel S.

RICHARD SCALF & MALINDA TUTTLE


Malinda Tuttle was the third wife of Richard Scalf. Richard and Malinda were married November 7, 1896. On the marriage license of Richard and Malinda, her father is stated as Milton Tuttle; however, her mother's name is not listed. Her father's name is listed under birthplace of father. Richard and Malinda were to be married at Dan McVey's. (Marriage License – Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)  (Link to Marriage License)

William Scalf, son of Richard, was not listed in the household above and may be the William living in the home of Kizzie Smith just two houses away from Richard. Kizzie might have been Richard's mother-in-law from his first marriage to Phoebe Smith. This household is listed below.

Note:  It is unknown what relationship (if any) Kizzie Smith might have been to the Richard Scalf family.

It is possible that Kizzie Smith was the mother of Phoebe Smith Scalf, first wife of Richard. However, Willie (William) appears to have been the son of Richard and Mary Hensley Scalf if his age and birth date from the school and census records is correct. Richard did not marry Malinda until 1896 and Willie/William was born 1893. This suggests that Mary Hensley was also the mother of William (Willie). ; 

Willie (William?) is listed in 1900 in the home of Kizzie Smith while no William is in the home of Richard and Malinda in 1900; however, there is a William in the home of Richard and Malinda by 1910 with the same birth date. This indicates that William and Willie were the same person.

According to the marriage dates of Richard Scalf, it appears that the last five children, Milton, Lucy, Richard Jr., Lizzie and John were the children of Richard and Malinda.

The Knox County School Census of 1901-1903 reveals that Richard and Malinda had four children in school at this time; namely Martha Jane, Willie, James (Jimmie) and Miltie.

Richard Scalf and family were listed twice in the 1910 census.  He moved his family to another location in the town of Barbourville after the first census was taken. 

Note: Malinda stated on the first enumeration in 1910 that she had thirteen children born with five living. We know that Milton, Lucy, Richard, Lizzie and John were the children of Richard and Malinda.

Malinda then states on the second enumeration in 1910 that she had seven children born with only five living. By this, we assume that Malinda included five children from a prior marriage on the first enumeration but did not include those children on the second enumeration. We also assume that Richard and Malinda had a total of seven children. However, Tuttle descendents might be able to help solve this.

From the census records we find that Malinda's full name was Sarah Malinda.

Malinda died October 2, 1911.

RICHARD SCALF AND SUSIE HOOKER
 

After the death of Malinda, Richard married Susie Hooker December 6, 1912 in Knox County, Kentucky. On the marriage license of Richard and Susie it is stated that this was a fourth marriage for Richard and all former wives were dead. Both Miles and Lucy were deceased at this time as well. Susie was the daughter of Frank and Mary Hooker of Clay County, Kentucky. Susie's mother was also deceased at this time. Witnesses to the marriage were Nannie Scalf and Nannie Tuggle. (Marriage License - Courtesy of Virgil Scalf (Link to marriage certificate)

We have no further information on Richard Scalf and Susie Hooker.

We were unable to find Richard on the 1920 census; however, he was found on the 1930 census living with his daughter and son-in-law in Knox County, Kentucky and listed in the home as a widower. Either Susie had died or they divorced for Richard remarried in 1925 to Ruby Brock. Ruby gave the information for Richard's death certificate.

Richard married Ruby Brock October 25, 1925. Richard was 58 and Ruby was 23. Ruby was the daughter of Lewis Jackson. (Link to marriage certificate)

Henry Scalf stated the following information in the book Chronicles of the Scalf Family concerning Richard Scalf: 

The Scalfs of Georgetown, Ohio, originated in Knox County, Kentucky. They trace their ancestry back to Richard Scalf, Jr. son of Richard, Sr. who was born May 5, 1903, at Barbourville, Kentucky, and died Jan. 5, 1945, at Manchester, Ohio. Richard married Sarah Ann Mills, of Barbourville, March 22, 1926 in Lee County, Virginia. She was born May 14, 1902, at Barbourville. They moved to Ohio in 1927 and changed the name to Sibert. Under this name they were lost to the knowledge of the Eastern Kentucky Scalfs for 18 years. The Sibert family was an old Clay County one and one of the maternal ancestors of the children of Richard, Jr. and Sarah Ann Mills Scalf, was a Sibert. Sarah Ann Mills was a daughter of John O. Mills and Eliza Broughton, and a granddaughter of Obie Mills and Nancy Bargo Mills. (Chronicles of the Scalf Family)

Lizzie married Clarence McDonald on May 22, 1926 in Knox County, KY. (Link to marriage document)

Scalf Family History, pg. 134 states that Elizabeth married Silas Brown 3-7-1887 in Knox County, Kentucky. This information is confirmed by the marriage license of Silas Brown and Elizabeth Scalf. (Marriage License – Courtesy of Virgil Scalf) (Link to Marriage Bond – License)

The Death Certificate of Elizabeth Scalf, daughter of Miles and Lucy, states that she was 55 years old when she died November 28, 1923 in Knox County, KY. Milton Bingham was the informant. Elizabeth died from cancer of the liver. She was living at Barbourville, Kentucky at the time of her death. Elizabeth is buried at Cottengin, KY. Milam Scalf and Lucy Jackson were listed as her parents. (Commonwealth of Kentucky, Vital Statistics Certificate #28516 – Courtesy of Virgil Scalf) (Link to Death Certificate)

Silas and Elizabeth were found on the 1900-1920 census records of Knox County, Kentucky listed below. Elizabeth's age is not consistent with her birth date on the census records; however, we believe this is the same Elizabeth Scalf, daughter of Miles and Lucy.

Eli and Steve Brown, sons of Silas and Elizabeth are living next door to their parents in 1920. They have both married. Eli's wife was Mollie (maiden name unknown). They had two children on this census, Steven and Ida.

Steven's wife was Cordia. Steven and Cordia had no children on this census.

Melvin Brown, age 51 is also living nearby and might have been a brother of Silas. A Stephen Brown age 67 and wife Thursy was living nearby Silas in 1900 and may also have been his father. Silas named a son Stephen.

It is possible that Milton Bingham who gave the information on Elizabeth's death certificate was a son-in-law of Elizabeth. The Charlie Bingham family was living nearby Silas in 1910.



DAVID CROCKETT SCALF
Son of
Ira Scalf/Rosanna Gibson
David C<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

Information on the David C. Scalf family was written in conjunction with the research of Mrs. Nelle Goring Cook, (Coleman Ambrose Scalf family) Mrs. Bea James King (Rachel Dovey Scalf family) Mrs. Edna Mae Noble Lovelace (Nancy Ann Scalf family) and Mrs. Doris Mellenbruch Peterson (Rosanna Rose Scalf family)

Unfortunately, during the writing of this chapter, Nelle Goring Cook passed away. Nelle will truly be missed by her family and friends and very much by this author. Nelle and I became very close friends when the writings were first posted on the Scalf Family website.

It was not until December of 2006 that we learned of Nelle's death. It was suspected when emails were not answered for it was very unlike Nelle not to answer right away. When several other friends had not heard from her the SS Index was searched and her death found by Virgil Scalf.

Name:  Nelle B. Cook    
Last Residence:  96001 Redding, Shasta, California        
Born:  12 Mar 1924       
Died:  22 Sep 2005       
State (Year) SSN issued:  California (Before 1951) 

Nelle Goring Cook was the granddaughter of Coleman Ambrose Scalf, and great-granddaughter of David Crockett Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith.

Bea James King is the granddaughter of Rachel Dovey Scalf and Paul James and the great-granddaughter of David Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith. Bea was battling cancer at our last correspondence and we have been unable to get a response from her.

Edna Mae Noble Lovelace is the granddaughter of Nancy Scalf Noble Payne and great-granddaughter of David Crockett Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith. Edna graciously submitted the information on the family of Nancy Ann Scalf Noble Payne.

Doris Peterson is the granddaughter of Rosanna (Rose) Scalf and Andrew J. Wright. We suspect Doris has also passed away. Doris and I corresponded by postal mail and a letter to her in July of 2006 was unanswered.

Virgil Scalf is responsible for many of the censuses, marriage, death records, tax lists, and school censuses concerning the Ira Scalf family. This information was a combined effort by all of these folks and this chapter could not have been written without them.

David C. Scalf son of Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson was born April 2, 1838 and died November 14, 1915 at the age of 77 years, 7months and 14 days in Shasta County, California. (Death Certificate of David C. Scalf- Courtesy of Nelle Goring Cook)

David married Nancy Jane Smith, daughter of John Smith and Nancy Ann Elliott of North Carolina. No marriage record has been found for David and Nancy at this time. David and Nancy were living in the town of Pitville, California at the time of his death. David's birthplace was listed as Kentucky on his death record; however, the earlier census records indicate that David was born in Virginia around 1835 and was 15 years old on the 1850 Claiborne County, Tennessee census. David was living in Hawkins County, Tennessee with his parents in1840.

Bea James King states the following concerning the David C. Scalf family:

My line comes thru David Crockett Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith Scalf. They were my great grandparents. According to my records David C. was born 2 April 1835 in or near Russell County, Virginia and died 14 November 1915, Pittsville, Shasta, California.

Nancy Jane Smith was born 20 April 1839 in Tennessee and died 30 Dec. 1915, Pittsville, Shasta, California. Her parents were John R. (Dickie) Smith and Nancy Ann Elliott. Nancy Ann's parents were Thomas Elliott and Elizabeth Ballinger.

They were married 24 July 1858 possibly in North Carolina. No proof.

Of this union I have the following children:

    1) Saraphina (Sarah Fina) born 6 Mar. 1860 Claiborne, TN died: 22 May 1922 Hominy, Oklahoma.
    2) Isaac born 1862
    3) James Elihu born: 12 Nov. 1865
    4) Nancy Ann born: 8 Aug. 1868
    5) Coleman Ambrose   born: 13 June 1869
    6) Margaret Pernina born: 22 Sept. 1872
    7) Thurza Jane born 1874
    8) Mary Rosa born 5 Dec. 1876
    9) Rachel Dovie born 10 Aug 1878 Kentucky; died 28 June 1951 in Provo, Utah, Utah. Buried outside Coffeyville, Montgomery, Kansas in Robbins Cemetery
  10) Elizabeth born 1880.   (Courtesy of Bea James King)

It is difficult to determine exactly where David was born due to so many factors. Ira and Rosanna might not have remembered his place of birth correctly along with the fact that David might have always believed he was born in Kentucky because he lived there for so long when he was young as happened so often with folks; however, David consistently stated on each census record that he was born in Kentucky.

Ira Scalf (David's father) was still in Russell County, Virginia for at least a short period of time after Ira's father left around the latter part of 1834 or early 1835. The local sheriff had confiscated property from Ira believed to have belonged to John Sr. in July of 1835. John Sr. had sold his belongings in December of 1834 in Russell County and it is assumed he left around this time. Ira resolved the matter of the confiscated property in July of 1835. From this record we assume Ira was still living in Russell County, Virginia in July of 1835.

Ira left Russell County sometime after July of 1835 and was found living on Otter Creek in Clay County, Kentucky in 1836. However, we cannot be certain Ira was still there in 1838. Ira did appear in Hawkins County, Tennessee in 1839 and may have gone there from Clay County, Kentucky.

What we do know for certain is that Ira (father of David) was in Russell County, Virginia in July of 1835, in Clay County, Kentucky in 1836 and in Hawkins County, Tennessee in 1839. It is very possible Ira was still in Clay County, Kentucky in 1838. Regardless of where Ira might have been, the death certificate will take precedence because it is a legal document and the date of David's birth will be listed as April 2, 1838.

David's parents are listed as Ira Scalf and Rosa Gibson on the death certificate. The cause of David's death was listed as cerebral hemorrhage with arteriosclerosis as an underlying factor for ten years. Ira is listed as being born in North Carolina and Rosa was born in Virginia. However, we know that Ira's father had left North Carolina by 1806 and was in Floyd County, Kentucky by 1810. Ira was born around 1812, possibly in Kentucky or possibly in Russell County, Virginia. We do not know the exact date John Scalf Sr. arrived in Russell County, Virginia. We only know that he was there sometime before the enumeration of the 1820 census.

Almost all of David and Nancy's children were married in 1893. Coleman, Rosie and Thirsey/Thurzy married the three children of Henry Pickard and Miriam Reed Tuter. The three couples went to McCloud, California in 1902 with Pickard, his second wife, Sally and their children. (Nelle Goring Cook).

Nancy Jane Smith Scalf died one month after her husband on December 30, 1915 in Shasta County, California. She was born April 20, 1839 in Tennessee. Nancy died at the age of 76 years, 8 months and 10 days old. Nancy's cause of death is listed as bronchopneumonia with general debility as an underlying factor. Her father is listed as John Smith born North Carolina and Nancy Elliot born in North Carolina. Robert Scalf, grandson of David & Nancy, was the informant for the information concerning Nancy. C. A. Scalf (Coleman Ambrose) gave the information for David's death certificate. ;Coleman was the son of David and Nancy. No burial place is listed on the death certificate. (Death Certificate – Courtesy of Nelle Goring Cook)

(Link to Death Certificate of Nancy Jane Smith Scalf)

We first find David and Nancy on the 1860 Claiborne County, Tennessee census. David and Nancy had been married just a short time at the enumeration of this census. This census, along with the 1870 census of Madison County, Kentucky, suggests that David and Nancy had married 1855-1860. Sarah Fina (Saraphina) Scalf, the first child of David and Nancy was born about 1861 (census calculation).

On the 1870 census of Madison County, Kentucky, David's name is listed as D. W. Scalf. Other records, along with the prior writings of Henry Scalf and Elmer Scalf state that David's name was David Crockett Scalf. This caused some confusion concerning David's full name. In an email from Nelle Cook, dated January 29, 2004, Nelle states that she found a voter's list of 1912 Shasta County, California and David's name was listed as David C. W. Scalf so it does appear that both initials in David's middle name are correct but it is unknown what name the (W) represented.

A number of the members of the Scalf family of Carter and Washington County, Tennessee were found with two middle initials and we have found that these two initials represented one name: i.e., Mary Lucinda was found to be abbreviated as Mary L.C. This appeared to be something that was common with enumerators and clerks early on. It is possible that David C. Scalf's middle name was like this but we know him only as David Crockett Scalf. ;

A son, Isaac Scalf, was born to David and Nancy about 1862 or 1863 in Kentucky but no records have been found at this time to determine if Isaac lived to adulthood or not. It is stated by Elmer Scalf in Scalf Family History, page 138 that Isaac died. However, Bea James King states the following concerning Isaac.

Isaac born 1862 and I know he was living in 1900 according to Missouri census.(Bea James King).

David, another son of David and Nancy also reported to have died young in Scalf Family History, page 128, was born after the 1880 census and is listed on the 1900 census with David and Nancy at 18 years old. He is gone from the home by 1900 and this could suggest that he died; however, it could also suggest he may have married and moved away

Chronicles of the Scalf Family by Henry P. Scalf, pg. 150

David and Nancy's grave marker was installed in 1998, courtesy of Nelle Cook, their great-granddaughter.

Coleman Ambrose Scalf m. Mildred Herschel Tutor, September 24, 1893*

Mary Rose Scalf m. James William Tutor, October 26, 1893*

Thursey Jane Scalf m George Ballard Tutor, probably 1893

(Note: It is interesting to note that all of David's children married in 1892 and 1893.)

Coleman Ambrose Scalf their son, built a small home for them on the 80 acres on which he had filed for homestead in Shasta Co. CA. Homestead Entry Redding No. 02462, Serial No. 5825, September 25, 1912, first occupied November 3, 1912, Patented February 4, 1916.

Pg 151. Ella Scalf, etc.

Fact. The Coleman Scalfs could not have come to CA before 1902, because David Ambrose and Gertrude were born in MO. I think they came with other family members to McCloud, Siskiyou Co. CA about 1902 and worked in the lumber mill and on the construction of the railroad. Coleman was working at the McCloud Dairy when Dorothy and William were born in 1906 and 1907, respectively.

The Bench in Shasta Co. CA refers to Pittville, CA where Coleman filed a homestead claim in 1912. Coleman and family lived in Kennett, Shasta Co. CA when he worked at the copper smelter sometime between 1907 and 1912. The water behind Shasta Dam now covers the old town of Kennett.

 SARAH FINA SCALF
Daughter of
David Crockett Scalf & Nancy Smith
Sarah F<David C<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

Sarah Fina (Saraphina) Scalf was born about 1861 probably in Claiborne County, Tennessee. Her parents, David and Nancy were living there in 1860. Sarah married Russell Schoolcraft. Sarah and her husband were the parents of Effie Schoolcraft who married Thomas Net Braden about 1908 in Zora (Morgan County) Missouri.

Saraphina married a Mr. Schoolcraft (family info stated he died in a mining accident shortly after their daughter was born. No proof.) (Bea James King)

     1a: Effie G. born 24 Nov. 1892. Married Thomas Braden. (Bea James King)

Note that on the 1910 census of Morgan County Missouri Sarah is not listed as Sarah Schoolcraft but is listed as Sarah Braden. She states she has one child with one child living. This was her daughter Effie Schoolcraft who married Thomas Net Braden. Sarah was a widow in 1910. We believe Sarah was listed as a Braden in error by the enumerator.

By 1920, Sarah is listed as Sarah Collier and is again listed as a widow. It appears that Sarah had remarried to a Collier but it is unknown when this marriage took place. By 1930, Sarah had probably died as well and was no longer found on the census records.

By 1930, Thomas and Effie (Schoolcraft) Braden were living in Montgomery County, Kansas in the Coffeyville City Precinct #2. Their oldest son, Amos, is now married and living next door. Thomas is listed as he appeared on the census record. Bea James King states his name was Thomas Net Braden. The initial on the census record appears to be an H but this is probably due to the handwriting of the enumerator.

JAMES ELIHU SCALF
Son of
David Crockett Scalf & Nancy Smith
James Elihu<David<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

 

James Elihu Scalf married Minnie Hobbs 20 November 1893 in Missouri. James died at Edmonds, Washington. Elmer Scalf lists this information on page 138 of the Scalf Family History.

A search of the census records reveals that James and Minnie were living in Chehalis County, Washington by 1900 and then in Snohomish County, Washington in 1930. Their daughter, Ada Scalf Burses (Burns? Buress?) and her husband William were in the home in 1930.

Elmer Scalf states that Ada married:

  1) Tom Bjorensen
  2) William J. Burns.

Bea James King states the following:

James Elihu; born 12 Nov. 1865 Claiborne, TN; died 1960 Edmonds, Washington. Married: 10 Nov. 1893 in Benton County, MO to Minnie Hobbs.

  1) Etta born 21 Aug 1894 married 22 Sept 1920 Russell Morehouse.
  2) Ada born 21 Jan. 1900 married 6 Feb. 1918 to Tom Bjorenson.
(Bea James King)

The surname of Ada's husband appears to be Burses on the 1930 census but this is probably Burns. No record has been found of a marriage to Tom Bjorensen at this time by this researcher and we have relied on the research of Bea James King for information on this family. Ada may have married between censuses and her first husband died or they divorced. If so, they would not be found on a census record. As can be seen below, James' middle initial appeared different on each census, probably due to the handwriting of the enumerator.

Elmer Scalf states that Etta, daughter of James and Minnie Scalf, married Russell Morehouse. This couple has not been found. ;

We are very much indebted to Mrs. Everett (Edna Mae Noble) Lovelace, daughter of Everett Griffin Noble and Josie Laverne Wylie for her help on the family and descendents of Nancy Ann Scalf.

Nancy Ann Scalf, daughter of David C. Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith was born August 8, 1865 in Madison County, Kentucky according to her death certificate. Nancy died August 16, 1952 at Chinook (Hill Co) Montana at Kennedy Deaconess Hospital. Nancy was 87 years and 8 days old. The informant on the death record of Nancy was Mrs. Ed Johnson of Spokane, Washington. The name of Nancy's father is listed simply as Scalf. Under her mother's name is listed, no record. Nancy died from myocardial disease (Death Certificate - Courtesy of Edna Mae Noble Lovelace) (Link to Death Certificate)

Nancy married first to Griffin Noble 30 January 1893 in Benton County, Missouri and had two sons before Griffin died. (Link to marriage certificate)

NANCY ANN SCALF
       &       
SAMUEL NOAH PAYNE


After the death of Griffin Noble, Nancy Ann Scalf Noble remarried to Samuel Noah Payne. They were living in Hickory County, Missouri in 1900. Jesse J. Payne was a son of Samuel Payne by a prior marriage. Jesse was also living in the home. We believe Nancy Ann Scalf Noble married Samuel Noah Payne around 1898 according to what was stated on the 1912 census. In 1912, they stated they had been married for 12 years and had six children with five living.

On the 1910 census of Benson County, North Dakota, Samuel and Nancy's daughter, Vonzie Mae appears to be spelled Fonzula due to the enumerator's handwriting. Their first daughter, Fanta Viola was born June 25, 1902 and died September 29, 1902.

On the 1920 census, Vonzie's name is spelled correctly. This census suggests she was born about 1904. Edna Mae Lovelace states that Vonzie Mae was born August 14, 1903.

The 1910 census states that Samuel and Nancy had been married for 12 years calculating a marriage date of 1898. Nancy stated she had six children born with five living. This was the second marriage for both Samuel and Nancy. Counting the child that died, Nancy had two children by her first marriage and four by her second marriage, which correlates with her statement.

Vonzie Mae Payne, daughter of Nancy Ann Scalf and Samuel Noah Payne was born August 14, 1903 in Benton County Missouri and died in Portland Oregon. We have no death date for Vonzie Mae at this time. She married first to Emanuel Lauritzen. She married second to a Johnson. We believe that Mrs. Ed Johnson who gave the information for Nancy Ann's death certificate was in fact, Mrs. Vonzie Mae Johnson.

 

Child of Vonzie Mae Payne and Emanuel Lauritzen:

 

1) Lauritz  Lauritzen born 1932.

 

Edna Mae Lovelace sent the following information in an email message dated January 19, 2007:


Fanta Viola was born June 25, 1902 and died September 29, 1902. Vonzie Mae was born August 14, 1903. I haven't been able to locate her date of death, but I think it was in the mid-to-late 1980's and she was living in Portland, Or, at the time. I'll try to get more on this asap. By the way, Vonzie Mae went by her middle name most of her life. We knew her only as Mae for many years. Whoever was taking down the information for the 1910 census must have mistakenly put down the wrong name for the living daughter. (Edna Mae Lovelace)

COLEMAN AMBROSE SCALF
Son of
David Crockett Scalf/Nancy Smith
Coleman A<David C<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

Mrs. Nelle Goring Cook of California submitted the following information on the family of Coleman Ambrose Scalf. Nelle was extremely helpful in the research of this family. Nelle also contributed (indirectly) some of the information concerning the David C. Scalf family listed in Chronicles of Scalf Family.

On September 20, 1970, Mrs. Elsie Payne Archer replied to a genealogical ad Nelle had placed in Everton's Genealogical Helper in her search for Scalf. Elsie later traveled to California in October of 1974 and spent some time with Nelle and her family.

Nelle and Elsie became good friends and correspondents until Mrs. Archer's death. Elsie previously had traveled to Missouri to trace the David Crockett Scalf family and their move West for the writing of Chronicles of the Scalf Family by Henry P. Scalf.

In 1967, Nelle purchased the book, Chronicles of the Scalf Family.  Ironically, Nelle had previously compiled the history on Coleman Ambrose Scalf, son of David Crockett Scalf, which was shared with another researcher in California. This researcher was also researching the Scalf family. Nelle's research ultimately found its way to Elsie Payne Archer and was published in Chronicles of the Scalf Family.

In essence, Nelle unknowingly had submitted the history of the Coleman Ambrose Scalf for the writings of Chronicles of the Scalf Family.  The history had been submitted by the researcher whom Nelle had shared her material with and the researcher then submitted the material to Elsie Payne Archer.

Nelle very graciously shared with the author her correspondence with Elsie Payne Archer and Edwin O. Scalf, another early Scalf researcher. Edwin is also deceased.

The paragraphs below were written and submitted to the author by Nelle Goring Cook: 

Coleman Ambrose Scalf was the fifth child of David C. Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith. Coleman married Mildred (Millie) Tuter 24 Sep 1893 in Iconium, St. Clair County, Missouri. Coleman made Homestead Entry 16221 November 11, 1895 at Boonville, Missouri for the NE-1/4 SE Ό Sec.1, T.39 S., R.24W. The 40 acres were in Osceola, St. Clair Co. MO. He abandoned the homesteaded land for $25.00.

Robert and Ella were born in Benton Co. Missouri. The next two children, Gertrude and David were born in Green Co. Missouri. Dorothy and William were born in McCloud, Siskiyou Co. CA.

Coleman was an industrious, hard-working man of the Baptist Faith. He enjoyed good health except for a weakness for pneumonia. The seventh bout with pneumonia claimed his life at age 67. Coleman Ambrose Scalf died in 1937.

A 1905 death record exists for Coleman Ambrose Scalf, Jr. revealing 7 children instead of 6 born to them. Coleman Jr. would not be listed on census records and would not have been found if not for this death record. ;  (Copy in possession of Nelle Goring Cook)

The following are the memories of Gertrude Anne Scalf Jordan Turner as recorded by her daughter, Millie Beshears.

  1) Camp 2 – Coleman and family moved to Camp 2 out of McCloud, CA in 1903 because Coleman had a job working in the woods.
  2) McCloud – Dorothy & William were born in McCloud. Dorothy had spinal meningitis and the other children had to live with others for two months until Dorothy got well. Gertrude stayed with her Grandfather & Grandmother Tuter.
  3) Dana, CA - David C. & Nancy Jane Scalf moved to Dana from MO and moved in with Coleman and family.
  4) Glenburn – Coleman worked on farms in the area.
  5) Pinegrove – They lived about 1 mile from the school house and the children either walked or rode horses to school.
  6) Pitville – The family moved 3 miles out of Pitville on a 60 acre homestead. David & Nancy Jane Scalf moved into Pitville where they lived a short time. They then moved in with Coleman and family. Later Coleman and son, Robert, built a log house for them where they lived until David died. Nancy Jane then moved back in with Coleman and family until she died about six weeks later. Ella married Alexander Cleveland (Frank) Lester. All of the Scalf Family played horse shoes in their front yard. When people would go by, some of them would stop and play horse shoes with them. ;When lunch time came, the women would go in, cook lunch and all went in and ate—even the strangers who had stopped to play. Quite a few Indians lived there in the open woods. One named Cindy always rode a shay and when the children watched her, she would say, Why you look at me too much?  When Gertrude went to visit Cindy she watched her gather acorns to make bread. If she found a worm in an acorn, she would ask Gertrude if she wanted the worm. When Gertrude told her no, Cindy would put it in her mouth and say, He die pretty soon.
  7) Mount Shasta – The family moved here the first time in 1917. Robert was drafted into the Army Gertrude survived the Spanish Flu which killed so many people in 1918. Gertrude married Silas T. Jordan in 1918. David A. married Elsie Brown.
  8) Weed – In 1919 Coleman, Millie, Dorothy, Bill, (William E.), Silas & Gertrude, David and Elsie where the men worked in the lumber mill. A son, Coleman Talbert born to Gertrude and Silas died at 4 months of age, January 1, 1920. Robert Scalf came home from the army, met and married Ella Wheeler Fee.
  9) Mount Shasta - The families moved back in 1920. Coleman and Silas worked at the Mount Shasta Fish Hatchery. Coleman and Millie bought a home on So. Mount Shasta Blvd, where they lived until it burned to the ground in 1924. They lost everything they owned. Coleman eventually went to work for the Mount Shasta Lumber Co. In the 1930s they operated the Mount Shasta Laundry for their son, Robert. Coleman always grew vegetables and had animals for milk, eggs and meat. He had a vegetable route in McCloud to sell his surplus produce. A friend gave him a lifetime lease on some land in N. Mount Shasta. He constructed a home, a separate root cellar and a hand-dug well. There he grew and preserved vegetables and fruit, pigs and chickens. The summer before he died, he and Millie had stored potatoes and carrots, canned over 200 quarts of produce, made a barrel of sauerkraut, cured and smoked bacon, ham and rendered lard, For meals, Millie made biscuits with every meal--three times a day. He arose at 4:00 a.m. everyday, started the fire in the kitchen stove, then called Millie at 5:00 a.m. everyday they were physically able to arise.
   10) Elihu and Nancy visited, then Nancy went to Utah. Mr. James also visited them from MO.
   11) The children attended school in McCloud, Dana, Glenburn, Pinegrove and Pitville (up on the Bench). The games they played were hide and seek, jacks, horse shoes, anti-over. ;They rode horses, pigs, cows and played ball.
   12) Coleman went to MO in 1922 to visit. ;Other than that, no one remembers any other returns.

*** End of Memoirs. (Edited and submitted by Nelle Cook)

  November 14, 1915 Coleman received Homestead Certificate for S-1/4 NE-1/4 of Section 12, TWP 37N, R5 E MD Meridian, California, containing 80.00 acres. The Certificate was approved February 4, 1916. Patent No. 514541 was awarded February 18, 1916. (Copy in possession of Nelle Cook, Redding, CA)

Mildred (Millie) was the daughter of Henry Tutor and Miriam Reed. She was born 8 May 1871 in Mercer Co. WV or Decatur Co. IN and died 1 February 1953 in Redding (Shasta) CA.

MARGARET PERNINA SCALF
Daughter of
David C. Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith
Margaret P<David C<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

Marcella Hallagin Jones, granddaughter of Margaret Pernina Scalf, states that (HALLIGAN) should be spelled  (HALLAGIN). (Courtesy of Bea James King)

This name is spelled Hallagin in most of these writings with the exception of the census records where it was found as Halligan. Name spellings have been copied as they were found on records; however, this family has always used the spelling of Hallagin.

Margaret Pernina Scalf, daughter of David C. Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith was born September 22, 1872 in Kentucky and died February 15, 1933 in Bartlesville (Washington Co) Oklahoma. Pernina (Nina) is found on the census records as Nina and Margaret. She married Richard David Hallagin March 9, 1893 in Benton County, Missouri. Richard was born about 1873, the son of James HALLAGIN. Richard and Nina are first found on the 1900 Benton County, Missouri census. Richard is listed as David HALLAGIN and Pernina is listed as Nina. The name is spelled Permina in the Scalf History Book but I believe this should be Pernina since Nina was used for a short name.

Richard and Nina were followed though the census records beginning in 1900 Benton County, Missouri where their first three children were born. Richard and Nina then moved to Oklahoma although they have not been found on the 1910 census at this time but were found on the 1920 and 1930 Oklahoma census.

Nina and Dave separated and Nina is found living several houses from David in 1930. David was living alone as head of house and Nina was head of house with two of the children at home. Their oldest son, James, is found in Oklahoma until 1930 where he is found living in Washington County, Kansas.

Dave and Nina's son, Emmett had been born in Kansas about 1909 so we know that the family had lived in Kansas for a short time as well. On the 1930 census of Washington County, Oklahoma, Marvin is listed as divorced and Nina has a granddaughter living in the home. This is probably Marvin's daughter but she could have belonged to either of the sons. Marvin states he married at 20 years old so this would indicate he married around 1925 and was divorced by 1930. The granddaughter of Nina is listed as 3 years and 5 months old.

No information has been found concerning who Mary L. (Lou) married or where she was living. Myrtle married Floyd S. Lauderdale and Emmett married Ida Mae Bell according to Elmer Scalf. No information is found on this family at this time.

The following was submitted to Bea James King by Marcella HALLAGIN Jones, granddaughter of Margaret Pernina Scalf and Richard David HALLAGIN.

 
Notes for MARGARET PERNINA SCALF:

Her youngest son Emmett HALLAGIN/Hallagin/Hallegan told his children that Margaret Pernina always made him go to church with her when he was very young. She was active in "laying on of hands" praying and healing. As he got older he quit going to any church and when he died he was not a member of any church.

THURSA J. SCALF
 Daughter of
 David C. Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith
Thurza J<David<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

Much of the information concerning Thurza Jane Scalf has been compiled with the census records and the help of Nelle Goring Cook and Bea James King.

Thurza J. Scalf, (Thirsey) daughter of David C. Scalf and Nancy Jane Smith was born about 1874 in Kentucky, probably Madison County. Thurza did not show up on the 1880 census and it is unknown at this time where she might have been. Thurza (Thirsey) would have been around 12 years old in 1880 and should have been listed in her father's home but might have been with relatives at this time.

Thurza married George B. Tuter and this family is found in Benton County, Missouri in 1900, however, by 1910 Thurza had died and George remarried to Elizabeth Lizzie (Whipple) Thomason. (Nelle Goring Cook).

George and Elizabeth were found in the 1910 Siskiyou County, California census.

Several of the children of David and Nancy had left Missouri for California by 1910, including David and Nancy.

George and Thurza had only been married seven years but had two children in the home ages 8 and 10. Thurza also stated she had three children, with two living. The last two children on this census were the children of George and Thurza and the first two sons, James and John belonged to George Tuter and his first wife, Minnie O. Wheeler.

George Tuter's first marriage was to Minnie O. Wheeler. George and Minnie had two sons, James D. Tuter born July 1889 in St. Clair Co. Missouri and John William Tuter born 28 Mar 1892, St Clair County, Missouri. John William Tuter married Gladys Sheldon. Minnie died when he was born. George married Thurzie the next year. ;I don't know what happened to James D. Tuter yet. The only Scalf descendants were Thurzie's two daughters, Mary Edna Tuter who married Jacob Christian Nielson and Effie May Tuter, married Charles F. Nelson 14 Oct 1918.

George & Thirsey Scalf Tuter moved to McCloud, Siskiyou Co. in 1902 from MO. A son, Irving B. Tuter, was born to George and Thirsey on 1 Oct 1905 and died 25 Oct 1905. George worked at Camp 2, a lumber camp a few miles out of McCloud. Thirsey died some time before 1910 and is probably buried in McCloud. George & Lizzie moved to Yreka, Siskiyou Co. in 1937 where they lived for the rest of their lives.  (Nelle Cooke).

By 1910, George is in Siskiyou County, California with his new wife Elizabeth Thomason. George states they have been married two years. Elizabeth states she has seven children with seven living. She and George both state this is their second marriage. George and Elizabeth are not found in 1930.

Mary Rose Scalf was born December 5, 1876 in Kentucky, probably Madison County and died March 22, 1957 in Sacramento, California. Mary Rosa married James William Tuter October 26, 1893 in Benton County, Missouri. James and George Tuter were brothers. ; (Link to marriage document)

An email received from a descendent by the name of Murray who failed to state his last name is listed here.

Excerpt from an email received August 10, 1998:

James William Tuter was born April 14, 1864 in West Virginia. James and Mary Rosa had eight children all born in Missouri.

Children of Mary Rose Scalf and James William Tuter:

  1) Etta Tuter
  2) Henry Tuter
  3) Ollie Tuter
  4) William Tuter
  5) Arthur Tuter
  6) Iva Tuter
  7) Nellie Tuter
  8) Maude Tuter

The family moved to Northern California where James got a job with the railroad. Etta (my grandmother) met her husband to be Floyd Frazier. They are all gone now except Maude. Maude was born in 1920. (Courtesy of Murray -last name not stated)

Mary Rosa and James were also living in Benton County, Missouri when the 1900 census was enumerated. A Henry Tuter, age 56, born 1843 in North Carolina was living next door to James and Mary. This was the father of James and George Tuter. (Nelle Goring Cook)

James and Mary Rosa were not found on the 1910 census but were found in California in 1920. It appears that their daughter, Millie E. had died or married by the enumeration of the 1930 census for she is not found in the home in 1920.

Information on this family has been compiled with the help of Bea James King. Virgil Scalf collected the census records listed below and Bea submitted names, dates, places and some history on her grandmother's family.

Rachel Dovey Scalf was born about 1878 and died about 1951 according to Scalf Family History. Her granddaughter, Mrs. Bea James King confirms that Rachel was born August 10, 1878 in Kentucky and died June 28, 1951 in Provo (Utah County) Utah.

Rachel married 1) Paul James June 22, 1893 in Benton County, Missouri.  (Link to marriage document)  Paul James was born November 28, 1856 in West Virginia, the son of William James and Amanda Duckworth. After the death of Paul James, Rachel remarried to Charles Rollins. No information is known of Mr. Rollins.

Rachel is listed in her father's home as being born about 1878 but the 1900 census of Benton County, Missouri lists her as 40 years old, estimating her birth some 20 years earlier. This was surely a mistake on the part of the enumerator as he also listed Rachel as Rachel Lillie.

Paul and Rachel were enumerated on the 1900 and 1910 census of Benton County but were not found in 1920 or 1930. Paul and Rachel stated they had been married for17 years and had 10 children with 4 living in 1910. Lee, Charles, John and Walter on the 1900 census were children from the first marriage of Paul James.

The following information was submitted by Bea James King:

My line is from child 9 - Rachel Dovie Scalf and Paul James. Paul had been married to Amanda Josephine Rothrock (she died March 5, 1893) and July 2, 1893 he married Rachel. He had 6 sons by the marriage to Amanda. Their names were:  Jesse Francis born 1881, Lee Roy born 1883; Charles L. born 1885; John T. born 1887; William B. born 1889 and Walter Herbert born 1891.

Paul and Rachel Dovie had the following children:

9a: Warner Wesley James born June 1895 Dell Delight, Benton, MO. Died 4 Feb. 1985 in Coffeyville, Montgomery, Ks. Married 14 July 1919 in Independence, Montgomery, KS to Virginia (Virgie) Denton-Sanders.

NOTE:   Warner Wesley James was born to Paul and Rachel. When he was about 7 years old, there was a will being probated that pertained to Paul's late wife Amanda Rothrock James. All the boys were home except the last one Walter Herbert. They didn't know where he was (he still hasn't shown up in 2004) but they needed his signature on these papers. Paul had Warner with him at this meeting and the lawyer commented as far as he was concerned this kid here (pointing at Warner) could be Walter. So the long shot was Warner signed the papers. As Warner got older he began to fear he had broken the law and to keep a low profile he started signing all papers and took the name of Walter Herbert James. He married and died and is buried by the name of Walter Herbert James when he really was Warner Wesley James. (No wonder genealogists pull their hair out at times.)  My father (Paul Herman James) was the only person I ever heard call my uncle by his real name of Warner. We kids knew him as Uncle Walt.

9b: Edna (Edney) Maude James was born August 1897 in Dell Delight, Benton, MO. She died 25 October 1958 in Coffeyville, Montgomery, KS. She married James Barber but I have no other information on the dates.

9c: Rosa Mary James was born (according to my Uncle Warner) after 1900 but didn't live long. I actually have no proof she ever existed.

9d: Noah Morgan James born 26 Feb. 1902 in Dell Delight, Benton, MO. Died 21 Dec. 1946 in El Rio, Ventura, California. About 1927 he supposedly married Eula Mae Shufeldt. They had one son Randolph born in 1928. In the 1930 census Eula and Randolph are living with her parents in Oklahoma. Noah is in Kansas living with but supposedly married to Nellie Dow and their 4-year-old son Eugene. (Some day I will be able to put this together but not now.)

9e: Paul Herman James was born 27 Oct. 1909 in Dell Delight, Benton, MO. And died 26 Oct. 1962 in Tyro, Montgomery, KS. He married 3 Jan. 1934 in Independence, Montgomery, KS. To Emma Mae Durst-Hayden. Emma was born 22 March 1908 in Lenapah, Oklahoma to Henry Durst and Hattie Mary Koons-Durst. She died 18 July 1974 in Coffeyville, Montgomery, KS. Her first husband was Kenneth Carl Hayden who upon learning she was pregnant with their first child, packed up and left never to be seen or heard from again for many years. She had to move back home with her parents and had her child, a boy, named Cecil Hayden. In 1933 she met Paul Herman James at a country-dance and they dated. She couldn't afford to get a divorce, so Paul paid for the divorce and they were married on 3 Jan. 1934. Their children are:

9e1 - Beulah (Bea) Lucile James born 22 Oct. 1934 in Wann, Ok. Married:

  1)  Melvyn Eugene Simon in 1955 and he died in 1960.
  2)  Charles Curtis Mauk in 1963. They were divorced in 1970 and he died in 1974. One child:  Michael Charles Mauk 17 July 1964.
  3)  Leo George King married 28 Aug. 1975 and he died 3 July 2001.

Leo adopted Michael Charles in July 1976 and he is known as Michael Charles King. Michael has one son Curtis James King born 3 Oct. 1990. Michael was married in 1986 to Barbara Tyson and divorced by 1994.   11 March 2003 he married Tina Courtney-Finn.

9e2 - Stanley Paul James born 16 Feb. 1937 in Wann, OK. Married 23 August 1956 in Dearing, KS. To Peggy Earline Groff born 14 Sept. 1939 in Wann, Oklahoma.

 Children:

  1) Lisa Michele born 21 July 1961
  2) Stanley Paul, Jr. born. 20 Aug. 1962
  3) Timothy Wayne born 2 June 1965
  4) Jeffery Heath born 26 May 1971
  5) Nicholas Anthony born 24 Oct. 1979

 NOTE:  Dell Delight, Benton, Missouri no longer exists. It was located right outside of Warsaw, Benton, Missouri. There are only two buildings still standing and they are in very bad shape today. But there was a post office back in the 1900's.

I can only tell you a few things I remember my Dad and/or my Uncle Warner telling me about their life.

My grandfather Paul James was a blacksmith by trade. After he married Rachel Dovey Scalf and they had at least four children, my father Paul Herman the youngest, they moved to Oklahoma. They lived at different places but ended up for a spell at Lenapah, Nowata Co., OK where my grandfather opened another blacksmith shop. According to my Uncle, my grandmother Rachel had a word fight with my grandfather and she got real mad. That night she took gasoline and poured it all around the shop and burned it to the ground. After that they moved to Wann, OK where he opened another shop and was there until he died.

At one time around 1936 grandmother Rachel took a large knife and was going to do harm to my mother and me. Grandpa came in and took it away from her. She didn't like my mother. After grandpa died Rachel stayed a short while around Wann then she left for Wyoming where her daughter and family was reportedly living. She lived with them for a while until they had a big fight and she moved to Utah. She worked in a cafι and met a man named Charles Rollins. They later married. About 6 months after they were married, Mr. Rollins put her in the Utah State Mental Hospital. She stayed there until her death. We never heard anything from Mr. Rollins. After she died, my dad and his brother brought her back to be buried in Robbins Cemetery outside Coffeyville, KS next to her husband Paul James.

GREENBERRY SCALF
Son of
Ira Scalf/Rosanna Gibson
Greenberry<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf  

Greenberry Scalf was born about 1839, in either Russell County, Virginia, Kentucky or Hawkins County, Tennessee. His family was living in Hawkins County by 1840 so it is possible they might have been there when Greenberry was born. Greenberry was the son of Ira Scalf and his first wife, Rosanna Gibson. Rosanna had died before 1860 and Ira remarried to Nancy Killion McVey.

It appears that something might have caused the family unit to dissolve by 1860. It might have been due to Ira's second marriage or for some other reason; however, Greenberry was found in the home of Ransom Stuart in Clay County, Kentucky in 1860. The relationship (if any) to this family is not known at this time but it is possible this was part of Rosanna's family since children often went to live with aunts and uncles following the death of a parent.

Greenberry has been found listed as Greenberry and Green B. on the census records. Greenberry married Sarah Ann (aka Sallie) Johnson 1860 –1863. Their first child was born about 1863. Scalf Family History states they married December 26, 1861 in Laurel County, Kentucky. (Scalf Family History, pg. 140)

It is stated in the Scalf Family History that Sarah was of Cherokee descent through her mother, Mary Traugerson, of North Carolina. It should be noted that at least one line of the Johnson family were also of Cherokee descent.

Greenberry and Sarah raised their children in Lily (Laurel) Kentucky. By 1900, Greenberry and Sarah were found in the home of their son, John R. Scalf in Campbell County, Tennessee. It is not absolutely clear that this is Greenberry, son of Ira; however, there does not appear to be another Greenberry with a wife named Sarah or Sallie. It is the opinion of the author that the family in Campbell County, Tennessee is the family of John R. Scalf along with his father Greenberry living in the home.

Scalf Family History, page 141 states that Greenberry married a second time to Julie Bellitia in Laurel County, Kentucky, November 28, 1901. This places the death of Sarah between June 1900 and November of 1901. It is also stated that Greenberry and Sarah sold their land August 31, 1891 in Laurel County, Kentucky to T. Murrell, which then narrows the death date of Sarah as August 1901 – November 1901.

Greenberry and his second wife, Julie Belittia was not found on the 1910, 1920 or 1930 census and it is unknown when either of them died. Elmer Scalf states they were residents of Lily, Kentucky at the time of their marriage.

Greenberry Scalf married Julie Bellittia on 28 Nov 1901 in Laurel Co KY. (Marriage Certificate)    (Link to marriage certificate)

ANDREW JACKSON SCALF
Son of

Andrew<Greenberry<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
  

Andrew J. Scalf, son of Greenberry Scalf and Sarah (Sally) Johnson was born September 5, 1868 and died November 17, 1931. His wife was listed as Mary in his obituary.

(Link to Andrew Scalf death certificate)

Many thanks are extended to Tahmarrah (her surname not listed) for pointing out the discrepancies in the prior writings and for her help in setting the records straight. We are still not absolutely certain that this is the correct Andrew J. Scalf who married Aggie J. North but it is possible that Andrew was married twice. For this reason, this Andrew has been included here as the son of Greenberry Scalf.

In the writings of Elmer Scalf, page 141 – 142, it is stated that Andrew married Aggie J. North August 31, 1890 in Laurel County, Kentucky. Elmer lists one daughter as Martha E. Scalf – born 1894 – who married Paris Shotwell. Please note that Elmer has this family confused with another Martha Scalf from the line of Peter Scalf.

With the help of a descendent (Tahmarrah) we hope to set the records straight. Below is a transcript of this work.

Correction to Scalf Family History and "Chronicles of the Scalf Family" from the Bulletin Board at Scalf Family Website:

Chapter VI of "Scalf Family History by Elmer D. Scalf states that Andrew J. Scalf (son of Greenberry Scalf and Sallie Ann Johnson) married Aggie J. North. The marriage date is recorded in Laurel County, KY. This is correct but is this the same Andrew J. Scalf who was the son of Greenberry Scalf?

Elmer Scalf states the following on page 142 of Scalf Family History:

Children of Andrew J. Scalf and Aggie J. North

 Martha E. Scalf (B. 1894 -) married Parris Shotwell

Children of Parris Shotwell and Martha E. Scalf

 
Raymond Shotwell
 Mary F. Scalf (B. 1896-) m. P.M. Lanham (1-16-1916 Laurel Co. Ky)
 George Scalf
 Ester Scalf
 Katie Scalf

The children of Parris Shotwell and Martha E. Scalf appear to be the children of Andrew and Aggie with the exception of Raymond. Martha E. Scalf was born 1894 according to Elmer, however, her first daughter, Mary F. was born 1896 according to Elmer and as pointed out by Tahmarrah, we believe this is an error. ; Martha (the mother) would have only been two years old in 1896 if she was born 1894 and therefore, Mary F. could not have been her daughter.

Henry Scalf lists the family in this manner:

CHAPTER IX REV. IRA AND ROSEANN GIBSON SCALF

Andrew J. Scalf married Aggie, her maiden name not known. They were the parents of seven daughters and a son George who was drowned in the Ohio River at Evansville, Indiana, at age 10 or 12 years (Link to death certificate). Names of four of the daughters were Martha, Mary, Ester, and Katie. The other daughters died young, Andrew J. ("Andy") was twice married but he had no children by the last marriage. He died in Indiana.  (Chronicles of the Scalf Family)

Henry Scalf had not found the marriage of Andrew and Aggie at the time of his writings; therefore, he did not know the last name of Aggie. Henry states they were the parents of seven daughters and one son with the son (George) drowning in the Ohio River at Evansville, Indiana. He then names four daughters stating the others died young.

From further research and help from Tahmarrah, the following information was compiled: 

1900  Whitley CO KY        18 June 1900       Black Oak Precinct
 

SCALF, Andrew J. Head 34 Sep 1865 KY TN NC 
(North), Aggie J. Wife 26 May 1874 KY KY KY  
    Martha E. Dau   6 Oct 1893 KY KY KY
    Mary F. Dau   4 Sep 1895 KY KY KY

Andrew and Aggie were listed as being married for 12 years and had three children with only two living calculating a marriage date of 1888.

From the 1910 Daviess Co. KY census:

SCALF, Andrew Head 44 (1866) KY KY KY
    Aggie Wife 30 (1880) KY KY KY 
    Martha Dau 15 (1895) KY KY KY
    Mary Dau 14 (1896) KY KY KY

     Eater  Dau   5 (1905) KY KY KY

Andrew and Aggie were listed as being married 20 years with 7 children and only 4 living calculating a marriage date of 1890.

As can be seen, the census births vary as well as the marriage calculation. The author has calculated births from the 1910 census.

Aggie Jane (North) Scalf died at 1 a.m. on March 4, 1913 at Uniontown, Kentucky from pulmonary tuberculosis at the age of 34. She was the daughter of Elijah North (mother unknown). Aggie was born in Leslie County, Kentucky in 1879 (Calculated birth). A. J. Scalf was the informant for her death certificate.

Email message concerning this family from Tahmarrah, as quoted by her grandmother:

"Your grandfather, Charles Claude Payne, was a WWII Vet, born to Charlie Payne and Martha Scalf 10 Aug 1919 in Herrin, IL. I believe both of them was born in Kentucky, somewhere around Owensboro. He had a brother who I believe was named Woodrow, not sure if he ever married, but if I remember correctly he was killed in a street/knife fight in the 50's, either way, he also had a sister named Myrtle that married Attrice Faught. I don't recall that Attrice and Myrtle ever had any kids, but they both worked at KenRad. The last I ever heard about Myrtle was that she was in Rosedale nursing home in Owensboro in the early 1980s. I remember he had family in Indiana. Mary Francis Patterson, I think, was the one in Evansville, IN, but he also had an Aunt Katherine Cox, who was in Illinois at one time, I don't know if Charles and Martha divorced or if he died, but by the time your grandfather and I married in 1940, she was married to Deal McDaniel...." (Courtesy of Tahmarrah, written by her grandmother)

According to the above census records, Andrew and Aggy had seven children with only four living by 1910. These were Martha, Mary, William and Esther. A George is not mentioned but William might have been George William or there were children born after 1910. If so, they had more than seven children. ;It is also possible that George was an older child and did die young in a drowning.

According to Tahmarrah's grandmother, Charlie Payne (first husband of Martha) was thought to have had a brother Woodrow and sister Myrtle, so there were at least three Payne children by this marriage. Martha then married Deal McDaniel.

In conclusion, Henry Scalf was correct with most of his information. Mary, Esther and Katie were the daughters of Andrew and Aggie. There was also a son William who might have possibly been George William.

Mary was Mrs. Edwin (Mary Frances Scalf) Patterson. Kate was Mrs. Robert (Katherine Scalf) Cox. Charles and John were brothers of Andrew J. Scalf and this is verified by the census records. ;

We cannot say for certain at this time if Andrew J. Scalf who married Aggie J. North was the same Andrew J. Scalf whose wife was listed as Mary in his obituary. What we do know for certain is that one Andrew J. Scalf was the father of Martha E. Scalf who married 1) Charlie Payne - 2) Deal McDaniel.

By 1930, Andrew is living with his daughter, Mary, in Wayne County, Michigan. Mary is listed as head of house and was a widow at this time. It is unknown who Mary married before she married Mr. Patterson.

Andrew is then found in 1920 with a second wife Mary. Although we cannot be certain, it appears that the two children in the home were likely stepchildren even though they are listed under the Scalf name. Note that Edward was born 1908 and Hellen was born 1909. If the ages are correct, these children should have been children of Andrew and Aggie but were not in the home in 1910. Therefore, we believe they were children of Mary before her marriage to Andrew.

Note that Andrew was living with his daughter Mary at the enumeration of the 1930 census in Wayne County, Michigan. Andrew died November 17, 1931. His obituary states his wife as Mary. This information suggests that Andrew and his second wife Mary might have been separated at the time of his death in 1931. Andrew's daughter Mary was also listed on the 1930 census as a widow.

 

MARTHA SCALF
Daughter of
Andrew J. Scalf & Aggie J. North
Martha< Andrew<Greenberry<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf  


Martha Scalf, daughter of Andrew J. Scalf and Aggie J. North was born about 1893 and died January 6, 1963 at St. Mary's Hospital in Illinois. Martha married first to Charles Claude Payne and had at least two children; Myrtle and Claude and possibly one more named Woodrow. After the death of Charles Payne, Martha married Deal McDaniel who died November 28, 1951. We do not know of any children from this marriage at this time.

Martha and her first husband, Charlie Payne were found on the 1920 Williamson County, Illinois census in Herron Township with their daughter Myrtle Payne and son Claude Payne.

It appears that Martha married very young if the 1920 census is correct on the age of her first child Myrtle. Myrtle was born about 1908 and Martha would have been about 15 when Myrtle was born so she likely had married at the age of 14 or 15 years old and probably around 1907. There is around five years age difference between Myrtle and Claude and there could have been other children. Tahmarrah's grandmother thought she remembered Claude having a brother named Woodrow who was killed in a street fight sometime in the 1950's.

FRANCES SCALF
Daughter of
Greenberry Scalf Sarah Ann Johnson
Frances<Greenberry<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf  


Frances Scalf was born about 1870. Her death date is unknown. Frances married M. T. Gatliff 1887 in Laurel County, Kentucky. (Scalf Family History, Pg. 141

Nothing is known of this family. However, review of the 1870 and 1880 Laurel County, Kentucky census suggests that it is very possible that Frances and Tinsey are the same person. On the 1870 census in the home of Greenberry, Tinsey's birth is estimated at 1869. On the 1880 census in Greenberry's home, Frances' birth date is estimated at 1870. Both were born after Mary A. Therefore, it is the opinion of the author that Tinsey P. was actually Tinsey F. and was the same person as Frances.

Scalf Family History states that Frances married M. T. Gatliff and Tinsey married Thomas Miracle. However, Frances appears to be the wife of Henry North on the 1900 Whitley County, Kentucky census. Chronicles of the Scalf Family also lists that Frances Scalf married Henry North.

Mollie Hearst is in the home and listed as a sister-in-law to Henry North. Mollie was the daughter of Greenberry and Sallie Ann Johnson Scalf. Mollie married Brown Hurst. Mollie and Frances were sisters. Mollie's daughter Flora was also in the home.

John Robert Scalf and family were found on the 1900 census of Campbell County, Tennessee.

It is difficult to determine where John Robert might have been during the 20-year span between the 1880 and 1900 census and may have still been in his father's home. He would have been around 20 years old in 1894.The 1900 Campbell County, Tennessee census reveals that John and Mary might have married 1895 – 1898. Their daughter Annie was born about 1899. Annie may or may not have been their first child. Elmer states that Annie (Annabelle) died 1900. (Scalf Family History, pg. 141)

Elmer Scalf also lists nine children for John Robert Scalf and Mary E. Cook. However, only seven were found on the census records. According to prior writings, the first two children had died. Cora is listed on the 1910 census but is gone from the 1920 census, which correlates with the statement that she died 1910.

Sarah Scalf, daughter of Greenberry and Sally Johnson Scalf, was born about 1880. Sarah married Henry Jones 1898 in Laurel County, Kentucky. (Scalf Family History, pg. 141

 It appears that Henry might have been the son of Robert Jones and Christine Hensley Jones; however, this has not been confirmed.

We are indebted to Sharon Carter, a Trent family researcher, for sending us the death record of Sarah Scalf Jones. The record states that Sarah was born in Kentucky and died at the age of 37 years old in 1917. Her father was born in Claiborne County, Tennessee and her mother was born in North Carolina.

Email from Sharon Carter:

Margaret, I forgot to mention that I was able to get to the TN State Archives (for only about an hour) last week. They had a book there entitled "Claiborne Co., TN Vital Statistics 1914 through 1925"…I was looking for Trents, but came across a daughter of Greenberry Scalf. You may already have this; it's her death record:

Jones, Sarah, age 37, b. KY - Fa. Greenberry Scalf (b. Claiborne Co.) Mo. Sallie Johnson (b. NC) d. 1917. (Courtesy of Sharon Carter)

(Link to Sarah Scalf Jones death certificate)

From Chronicles of the Scalf Family, Chapter IX:

Greenberry and Sally Johnson, Scalf were the parents of 11 children. These were John Robert Scalf, Andrew J. Scalf, Charles Scalf, Mollie Scalf, Frances Scalf, Sarah Scalf, George Scalf and four children, their names unavailable but they probably died young. Charles married Callie Heath, who died in 1966, had nine daughters, and was living at Evansville, Indiana, in 1967. Frances Scalf married Henry North; Sarah Scalf married Brownlow Hurst.

We cannot confirm the marriage of Sarah and Brownlow Hurst. However, Mollie Scalf, daughter of Greenberry did marry Brownlow or Brown Hurst.

Henry Jones and Sarah Scalf Jones were found on the 1900 and 1910 census of Whitely County, Kentucky.

"Mary Frances Scalf was married several different times - married names include Barnett & Snelling. My Grandmother Bonnie Stover was close to her and visited her frequently on the east side of Cleveland. I was only 2 when she died but I may have a very vague memory of going to her house With Bonnie (who I called Mammy as a kid)

The daughters and of Mary Scalf and Charlie Barnett were Phyllis, Donna, Bonnie, Jerry and youngest Gary who recently passed. There seems to be a history of liver failure in the Scalf or Barnett line because they all died of liver failure and were not alcoholics.   

Donna took (Christine Burton on as a daughter) not biological and I do not know her kids names. Donna Lived off of Warrensville road and lived in the eastern Suburbs of Cleveland.

Phyllis died in Cambridge, Ohio within the last 10 years. She was a Funny and sarcastic woman who would always crack small witty jokes, She was kind of a badass. I was afraid of her as a kid and called her Uncle Phyllis.

Bonnie Grew up around Evansville, Indiana and somehow ended up in Gary, Indiana area before she finally settled in Cleveland on Anson Avenue. She married a man named Rual  d 6th patrols of the submarine U.S.S. Drum. They were depth charged several times and came close to dying on the submarine and he suffered with PTSD. He was very superstitious and always "knocked on wood" I think a lot of this came from his experiences in the War. There is a documentary on YouTube called Tales of the USS drum and they interview one of his crew mates Gerard Derosa, he explains some of the experiences on the sub.

Jerry Was hearing impaired and lived with my grandmother Bonnie in the back of the house on Anson until she died in 1997. I guess Jerry has just recently passed away.

I remember Bonnie Telling me a story as a kid about a BIG fish they caught in a lake in Indiana and they also lived through a house fire, Bonnie had an old tattered Burnt up Bible, im not sure if it was thrown out, it had char marks all over it. Laurie Schlessman has Bonnies Ashes. She might have one of the bibles to, not sure."(Courtesy – Thomas Lahman)

CHARY (CHANY) SCALF
Daughter of
Ira Scalf & Rosanna Gibson
 Chana<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

Chary Scalf, as we recognize the name from previous writings, was the daughter of Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson Scalf. She was born about 1840 probably in Hawkins County, Tennessee where her parents were living in 1840. It is the opinion of this writer that the available records confused previous authors who listed her as the daughter of Robert Scalf.

Although Robert Scalf may have had a daughter by the name of China or Chana, it is the opinion of the author that Ira and Rosanna Gibson Scalf were the parents of the Chana/Chany discussed in this chapter whom we know as Chary from the 1850 census record of Claiborne County, Tennessee. ; 

It is the opinion of the author that her name was neither Chary nor Charity. In reviewing the available records with Virgil Scalf, we have both agreed that her name was most likely Chana Scalf.

The spelling appears to be CHARY on the 1850 census of Claiborne County, Tennessee but we believe the spelling of the enumerator was the cause for this confusion. Chany or Chana was a common name in Appalachia. Also names ending in A were often replaced with a Y. Martha was often called Marthy and Sarah was called Sary, not only in Appalachia but in other regions as well. It is also the opinion of the author that the handwriting of the enumerator caused the r in her name to appear to be an n thus causing more confusion concerning the name.

Chana was born about 1840 according to the census records of 1850 and 1880. On page 142 of Scalf Family History, Elmer Scalf states that Chary was living with a Higgins family in Knox County, Kentucky in 1870 but this cannot be verified. A Chary or Charity was found in the home of the Higgins family but does not appear to be Chary Scalf.

What has been compiled concerning Chary (Chana) Scalf is listed below.

Note the spelling of the name on the1850 census record of Claiborne County, Tennessee in the home of Ira Scalf.

The Ira Scalf family could not be found in 1860 although we know that Ira was living in Knox County in this year. We suspect the family was simply missed by the enumerator in this year or possibly even out of the state. Chary (Chany) would have been around 20 years old in 1860.

In October of 1857, what appears to be CHANEY Scalf is listed as the bride of Messamore Smith. We believe this to be Chary Scalf from the 1850 census of Claiborne County, Tennessee. Witnesses to this marriage were Leander Smith and Andy Jones.

Although Chary (Chaney) married in 1857, this family was not found on the 1860 census. A daughter, Mary Lucrecia Smith, was born October 3, 1859.

By 1870 Chary (Chany) and Messamore had either divorced, or he had died for a marriage between what appears to be CHARY Smith and William Mills took place. This appears to be the same Chaney who married Messamore Smith. This marriage took place at the home of Fanny Smith and William Smith was a witness.

Again, we believe the handwriting of the clerk on this record indicates that this could be Chany. Note that Leander Smith was a witness to the marriage of Messamore Smith and Chaney Scalf. A William Smith was a witness to the marriage of William Mills and Chary Scalf.

Chaney Scalf married first to Messamore Smith then Chary married William Mills and Chamia married Hugh Smith. If this was the same person and the daughter of Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson Scalf, she had Smith relatives through her brother David C. Scalf. David married Nancy Jane Smith and although the relationship to the witnesses of these marriages (if any) is unknown, we believe there is a connection.

By 1880 William Mills had died and Chary is now listed as what appears to be China on the 1880 census of Clay County, Kentucky. However, the children are the same in 1880 as in 1870 and indicates this is Chary (Chana/Chaney) Scalf Smith Mills. She is listed as a widow on this census. It is unknown if Nancy, living in the home in 1870 was a child of William Mills by a prior marriage or not but certainly appears to have been.

We believe that Fanny and Mary might also have been from a prior marriage of William Mills but they could also have been from the marriage of Messamore Smith and Chary Scalf due to their birth dates. If so, they were not listed as Smith on this census and were most likely from a prior marriage of William Mills. According to the birth of the last child of William and Chary. William Mills died 1876 – 1880.

Note that a child is named Rosanner (Rosanna) on this census.

It is the opinion of the author that Chary (Chana/Chany) (China) (Chamia) is one and the same person and was the daughter of Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson Scalf. As stated previously, we believe the handwriting of the various enumerators and clerks is why the name appears differently on several records. Chamia should probably be Chania instead of Chamia. What appears to be an m most likely was intended to be an n.

Until further records prove otherwise, the child of Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson listed as Chary on the 1850 Claiborne County, Tennessee census is believed by the author to be Chana or Chany.

JANE SCALF
Daughter of
Ira Scalf & Rosanna Gibson
 Jane<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

(Photograph of Jane Scalf Phillips courtesy of Nelle Goring Cooke)   

Jane Scalf was born about 1841 in Tennessee according to the 1850 Claiborne County census. If this is correct, Jane may have been born in Hawkins County, Tennessee or Claiborne County, Tennessee. Elmer Scalf states that Jane was born in 1846 and as we know, the census records are not the most reliable records we have so Jane may have been born in 1846. ;

According to the writings of Henry Scalf, Jane left home after the marriage of her father to Nancy Killion McVey and lived with her uncle, Robert Scalf in Kentucky. Jane then returned home to help care for her grandmother, Edeah Carlisle Scalf in the latter part of the 1850's sometime around 1859. Henry also states that Edeah Scalf, wife of John Sr. was in Kentucky by 1854.  

Jane's father, Ira, was certainly in Claiborne County, Tennessee in 1854 for he married the widow, Nancy Killion McVey January 29, 1854 in Claiborne County. ;  It is unknown exactly what year Ira and Nancy arrived in Kentucky but they would have been there sometime before 1859 if Ira built a cabin behind his home for his mother Edy in 1859.

Ira and his family were not found on the 1860 Kentucky census of any county, nor is he found in the 1860 Tennessee census although he was listed on the 1860 tax list of Kentucky. It has been stated that David C. Scalf might have married Nancy Jane Smith in North Carolina in 1860. If this is correct, Ira Scalf and his family, along with Edeah Carlisle Scalf might have been in North Carolina in 1860. A search of the census records did not reveal this family, however.

Jane Scalf married Benjamin Madison Phillips February 22, 1861 in Clay County, Kentucky according to the writings of both Henry and Elmer Scalf. I have not seen this marriage record but have no reason to doubt this is correct.

Benjamin Madison Phillips died 1910 – 1920 and Jane died 1920 – 1930. Elmer states that this couple remained in Kentucky about ten years after Benjamin served his tour in the Civil War with the 49th Regiment Kentucky Volunteers. The war ended in 1865, so this couple should have been on the 1870 census of Kentucky but they were not found in Kentucky.

However, on the 1870 Iron County, Missouri census, is listed a B. M. Phillips and wife, Jane. Due to the fact they were not in Kentucky in 1870, it is most likely Benjamin and Jane on the 1870 Iron County, Missouri census. The names of two of the children are very difficult to determine on this census but one son, William, does appear to be the same William listed in Scalf Family History. The ages also correspond. Benjamin is not found after 1910 but Jane is found living with her son, Charles, in Woodward County, Oklahoma in 1920. Jane was not found after this and it is reported that she died in 1924.

Rosa Phillips, daughter of Benjamin and Jane Scalf Phillips married William H. Holloway. This couple was living in the home of Rosa's parents on the 1900 census of Oklahoma. They were living in Woodward County, Oklahoma in 1910, 1920 and 1930. Benjamin and Jane's two sons Denver and Charles were also living in Woodward County, Oklahoma. Jane was living with her son Charles in 1920 but Charles was living alone in 1930.

If this is the family of Benjamin Phillips and Jane Scalf in Iron County, Missouri, this family left Kentucky 1869-1870 because the last child was born in Kentucky in 1869. The names of the last two children are difficult to read. The family was not found in 1880 but by 1900 Benjamin and Jane were living in Indian Territory in the Creek Nation in Oklahoma. On the 1900 census, Jane stated she had six children with only four living. Note that she is listed as Jennie in 1910. We believe her name might have been Virginia Jane and Jennie due to the fact that Jennie was often used as a short name for Virginia.

Ann (Annie/Anna) Phillips daughter of Benjamin Phillips and Jane Scalf married Martin Alexander Payne. Martin was around 20 years older than Ann. On the 1910 census, Martin is listed as having been married prior to his marriage to Ann. There were probably children from Martin's first marriage. Payne family members were living near Martin and Ann that might have possibly been children from the first marriage of Martin. Martin and Ann were followed on the census records of Oklahoma where they were found living in the Creek Nation in 1900 and Okmulgee County in 1910 and 1920.

ALFRED SCALPH (SCALF)
Son of
Ira Scalf & Rosanna Gibson
Alfred Scalph<Ira Scalf<John Sr<Lewis Scalf
 

The question has been asked many times, why is the name spelled differently if the name is the same?  We have no way of knowing the specific reason that some family lines are found with different spellings of the same name. The best we can offer as an explanation comes from speculation only. The author assumes from reading a lot of material over the years concerning genealogy that this was largely due to the illiteracy of the day. Spelling was phonetic and clerks, or record keepers of all types spelled mainly by sound. As we know, speech varies from region to region.

No doubt, some families deliberately changed the spelling of the surname to break away from the family unit for various reasons; however, the author has found that the majority of the spellings in this family came from illiteracy and phonetic spelling by clerks and record keepers of various sorts.

Our ancestors were, for the most part, illiterate and did not read or write which left them at the mercy of the local clerks, the census enumerators, etc. If one cannot read or write, one cannot know the correct spelling of something. Most of our ancestors probably never spelled their names and whatever spelling they happened to see is what they used if they could read and write at all.

As time progressed someone in the family did learn to read and write and of course was taught by someone else. Being taught by someone else also meant learning what someone else believed to be the proper spelling. The spelling then carried down to future generations whether it was correct or not. This may not have been the case with this family and is offered only as a suggestion as to why the name was spelled differently.

Portrait of Alfred Scalph family

Alfred Scalph was born about 1843 or 1846 in Tennessee depending on which census record you are looking at but most likely it was 1846. Alfred died March 3, 1914 in Webster County, Missouri and is buried at Pedelo Cemetery in Rogersville (Webster Co) Missouri. (Courtesy of Doris Peterson)

The social security index lists his death date as March 12, 1914. His last residence was Rogersville (Webster Co) Missouri. (SS Index)

Alfred married Mary Emily Elizabeth Wright 24 December 1870. Albert's wife Emily was born March 10, 1850 in Madison County, Kentucky and died March 1, 1897 near Carterville, Missouri (Courtesy of Doris Peterson)

(Link to Death Record of Alfred Scalf) (Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)    (Death Record of Emily Scalf in possession of Doris Peterson)

Alfred is found in the home of his parents (Ira and Rosanna Gibson Scalf) in 1850 Claiborne County, Tennessee but the Ira Scalf family was not found in 1860. However, Alfred Scalf and Benjamin Smith were witnesses for a marriage between Thomas Hubbard and Nancy Garland in Knox County, Kentucky in 1865. Thomas Hubbard married Nancy Garland November 5, 1865, and Alfred should have been around 19 years old at this time. We feel certain this was Alfred Scalph, son of Ira and Rosanna.

Alfred would have been around five years old when his mother, Rosanna, died. No doubt, these children saw a difficult life after the loss of their mother. Life was difficult in Appalachia with both parents living but it likely became more so after Rosanna died.

It appears that Alfred moved away from home by 1865 for he appears on the Knox County, KY tax list. Alfred was also enlisted in the Militia.

Alfred Scalf
Enrolled in militia --- 1

Alfred was not found on the 1870 census records. Elmer Scalf states that Alfred married Mary E. Wright in 1870 in Missouri. Mary was born in Kentucky according to the census record of 1880 and her death record. It is very possible that the couple married in Kentucky before moving on to Missouri. We have no information concerning her parents at this time.

By 1880 Alfred and Mary were found in Webster County, Missouri. Alfred's brother, David C. Scalf was living in Madison County, Kentucky at this time but by 1900, he was living in Benton County, Missouri. Webster County, (Rogersville) Missouri is several counties north of Benton.

It is unknown what might have drawn Alfred to Webster County, Missouri but there were a number of Scalf families living in Missouri by 1870. In researching the Scalf family it was found that most of the time the families moved with other relatives. Sometimes the relatives were Scalf family and sometimes they were relatives of the spouse.

Alfred and Mary had four children in the home in 1880, namely; Martha, George D., William T. and John O. Scalph. Something apparently drew the family to Nebraska by 1885, for they were enumerated in the York County, Nebraska State Census of that year. There were now eight children in the home.

Note that a son, Ora, was born March 22, 1877 and was not listed on the 1880 census of Missouri but appears on the 1885 territorial census of Nebraska.

This family is missing from the census records in 1900 and a thorough search of the census records by Virgil Scalf did not reveal any information on this family other than the children. Some of the children had married at this time and had their own families.

After the death of Emily in 1897, some of the children (John, Ira and Ora) were found in other homes in Nebraska and Missouri in 1900. John, Ira and Ora were found living in Platte County, Nebraska with other families in 1900 and listed as servants. 

Another son, Lewis, was found in Webster County, Missouri in 1900, at the age of 15 living with the Watts family and also listed as a servant. On the 1910 Madison County, Nebraska census Ira Scalph is listed as head of house with a brother, Claude in the home. Claude is listed as 15 and would have been born about 1895 according to his age.

Vern was probably the last child born to Alfred and Mary and Mary may have died in childbirth but this is only speculation. Alfred is listed on the 1910 census as head of house at the age of 65 and states he was born in Kentucky. His son, Vern, is in the home at age 14 and born 1896. Mary E. Wright Scalf died in 1897 and this explains why the children were found in other homes in 1900. Alfred Scalph had died by the enumeration of the 1920 census.

The death records of California reveal that some of these family members also went to California, as did the David C. Scalf family. Birth and death dates for some family members have been taken from the Social Security Death Records compiled by Virgil Scalf. The birth date listed beside the family member marked with SS represents the birth found on the Social Security Records.

The 1910 census reveals information on how many times a person was married, how many years they were married at the time of the census and how many living and deceased children they have.

Family Group Sheet of Alfred Scalph from Doris Peterson lists the following children:

  1) Martha Ann Scalph born October 25, 1871 and died 1913.
  2) George David Scalph born October 8, 1873 and died September 26, 1909

After Mary E. Scalph died on March 1, 1897, Alfred did not marry again for several years, and he appears as a widower on the 1910 census. However,  on November 25, 1911, Alfred marries Sarah Louiza Roberts, the daughter of Solomon Roberts and Jerusha Blackburn. Unfortunately, Sarah Roberts Scalph died a few months later on January 10, 1912 from pneumonia.

Martha is listed as Martha E. on the 1880 Gentry County, Missouri census; however, Doris Peterson reports her name was Martha Ann Scalph. She was born October 25, 1871 and died 1913. Martha married Russell Dehaven according to Elmer Scalf and Doris Peterson reports the same.

Doris Peterson reports that this couple went to California after their marriage to appear in motion picture films and was never heard of again after the earthquake. ;

The earthquake that hit California after the turn of the century took place in 1906. Doris reports that Martha died in 1913. It has not been determined if Martha died in the 1906 earthquake or if there was another earthquake in California around 1913. However, the family has always stated that Martha died in the earthquake.


GEORGE DAVID SCALPH
Son of
Alfred Scalph & Mary E. Wright
George Scalph<Alfred Scalph<Ira Scalf<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

George David Scalph, son of Alfred Scalph and Mary E. Wright was born October 17, 1873 in Missouri and died September 26, 1905 in Missouri. (Courtesy of Doris Peterson and SS Index).

George was found in the home of his parents on the 1880 Gentry County, Missouri census at seven years old. Nebraska had a state census enumeration in 1885 and the Alfred Scalph family had moved to York County, Nebraska where they were enumerated on this census. George is still at home with his parents and is now listed as eleven years old. The 1890 census does not exist and this family was not found as a unit in 1900.

George is then found with his wife Sadie and children on the 1900 Webster County, Missouri census. Gladys Shuerg, a descendant of the Alfred Scalph line lists George's wife as Sarah Alice Walker. I'm sure Gladys would probably know more about this family than the author; however, on the 1910 Christian County, Missouri census, Floyd, a son of George and Sadie is in the home of a couple who appear to be his grandparents listed as Oliver M. and Tennessee Atkins.

Oliver and Tennessee appear to be the parents of Sadie. Sadie was also a short name for Sarah. Sadie remarried to Edward W. McNey and the family is found still living in Webster County, Missouri in 1910.

By 1920, Sarah (Sadie) is found as head of house in Labette County, Kansas. Sarah has her two children by George in the home and a daughter, Mable McNey. It is unknown if Edward NcNey had died or if they divorced. A Thomas Boyne was a boarder in the home.

In 1910 Sarah has a daughter named Mannie, Mamie or Marrie, the spelling is hard to distinguish. It appears that the daughter, Winifred, on the 1920 census is the same child as the one in 1910 according to the ages on both censuses. ;

ORA VESTUS SCALPH
Son of
Alfred Scalph & Mary E. Wright
Ora V Scalph<Alfred Scalph<Ira Scalf<John Sr<Lewis Scalf  

Ora Vestus Scalf was born March 22, 1877 and died May 25, 1970 according to the social security death records. ;(Note Obituary, Joplin Glope Sunday May 24, 1970) His last known address was Joplin, (Jasper Co) Missouri. Ora married Hattie Bell Chapman. (Hattie's name is confirmed with the Chapman family Historical Association) She was born November 5, 1883 and died July 9, 1970 at Tracy, (San Joaquin Co) California. (SS Death Indexes) Hattie worked as a school teacher in a one-room schoolhouse in her younger years. Hattie was caring for her mother in 1946 and living in Madison, Nebraska. After the death of her mother, Hattie worked as a personal care nurse at a rest home in Burley, Idaho. The last years of her life were in Tracy, California with her youngest brother, Hollis Chapman. (Information from Hattie's granddaughter, Vera Scalph Pesce)
(Courtesy of Anthony Pesce)

Ora was living in the home of Charley Hearburg in 1900 in Platte County, Missouri at the age of 23 years old. Ora possibly met and married his wife Hattie here. Hattie states on the census that she was born in Nebraska. Ora Left Hattie in  the mid 1930's arriving in Joplin around 1938 and he married Daisy Sowers. Hattie Bell told several family members that Ora never officially divorced her and she never divorced him (From one of her grandchildren). Ora was a veterinarian and also owned a produce market. (Refer to obituary Joplin Globe Sunday May 24, 1970) (Courtesy of Anthony Pesce)

A descendent recalls talking to his grandfather, one time before his death, by telephone. At that time (we have no date) Ora was married to Daisy. According to the descendents information, we estimate this conversation probably took place in the mid to late 1960's. An excerpt from that email is listed here:

I only had a brief phone visit with Grandpa Ora and his wife Daisy when they lived in Joplin MO. I was going to go see them but I was in the Military and was sent to Vietnam, when I got back Grandpa Ora passed away. I also remember my father mentioning an Aunt who was an actress her name Mary who was supposedly killed in the big San Francisco earthquake.

Orvin Scalph was an inventor, and he received a patent on a marshmallow toaster. (Vera Scalph Pesce, the daughter of Orvin Scalph, supported with parts from Dema Scalph's biography) (Courtesy of Anthony Pesce)

"Orvin worked for the government as a steam engineer. His job consisted of maintaining the boilers from which steam was piped into the different buildings for heat. His first boiler room experience began in a sugar mill in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, during his twelfth grade high school year. He worked the graveyard shift, returned home for breakfast and then went to school. The work was seasonal as it only ran when the sugar beets were harvested, about four months of the year. ;Later steam engineer experience included that of a foreman at Fairchild AFB, Spokane, WA.; work at the Naval Supply Depot, Veradale, WA.; Neah Bay AFB, Neah Bay, WA.; McChord AFB, Tacoma, WA.; Banger Torpedo Station, Bremerton, WA. as well as the power house in Keyport, WA. During the years at Neah Bay, Orvin purchased a boat and did some commercial fishing."

In Orvin's  younger years,  employment was scarce, and  he worked at anything that was available which included chopping wood at ten cents an hour, driving a tractor, doing farm chores, digging irrigation ditches and boxing in the ring for a few dollars. I remember his red boxing shorts with a white stripe down each side. He rode the rails for his transportation from job to job. He also worked on Boulder Dam, now Hoover Dam, making pipe for the dam until he was hit in the face with a cable which broke his jaw and put him in the hospital. He worked in the coal or iron ore mines in Bisbee, Arizona; Butte, Montana; as well as in Wyoming. He was a miner without experience so he became a mucker (someone who removed the rocky mine waste) which is a miner's helper. He learned to figure the proper amount of blasting that was needed so he did a great deal of blasting in the mines. He worked on the construction crew that built the Cascade Tunnel on Stevens Pass, WA. for the trains to pass through. He was employed by the Armour meat processing plant knocking cattle in Spokane, WA.

 During the depression, he passed a farm with a herd of cattle on the property. He knocked on the door and asked for a cup of milk for his cereal. The farmer refused his request, so he went into the field with the cattle and milked himself a cup of milk out of the cow. (Vera Scalph Pesce, the daughter of Orvin Scalph, supported with parts from Dema Scalph's biography) (Courtesy of Anthony Pesce)

Orvin had been out of work and heard from his brother, Lester, that if he could get to Las Vegas, he could get a job on Boulder Dam, now Hoover Dam. He left for Las Vegas alone. Dema's sister, Lillie Hahn, came with her baby, Norman, to Lyman, Nebraska, to stay with her. Lillie and Dema rented a little house that belonged to the school superintendent.

Orvin and Dema had another child, Phyllis Luetta Scalph, that not many people know about. (Link to birth announcement)

 Dema gave birth to Phyllis Luetta on December 27, 1934, at home with a country doctor in attendance. The baby was stillborn. Lillie took care of the burial details. Dema remembers how her baby, Phyllis, had a lot of black hair and was dressed in a white cotton dress embroidered with little pink roses and crocheted booties. She was wrapped in a baby blanket and placed in a wooden box. Phyllis was buried with Dema's brother, Herbert Short, and two cousins, Floyd Gore and Elsie Gore (brother and sister) in the Lyman Cemetery. After the birth, Dema went to Casper, Wyoming, for a short visit with her parents, after which she took her first train trip to join her husband.

John Calvin Scalph son of Ora Vestor Scalph and Hattie Bell Chapman was born September 28, 1925 and died August 1968. His last address was Port Arthur (Jefferson Co) TX. He applied for his card in Washington before 1951. (SS Index)

While in his early 20s, John Calvin Scalph became a merchant mariner and was listed as a crew member on several ships. He was 5 feet 8.5 inches tall, weighted 165 pounds, and wore a tattoo on his left shoulder. On September 23, 1947, we find him on the SS Kings Canyon that was sailing from Tampico, Mexico to New York City. Again, on February 4, 1948, he is a crew member on the SS York that was sailing from Tampico, Mexico to New York City. ;  Later, on July 24, 1948, he is a crew member on the SS Azalea City that was sailing from Balboa, Panama Canal Zone to New York City.

John O. Scalph was born August 25, 1879 and died July 8, 1941 in York Co. NE. (SS Death Index)

His son Marion Ardath Scalph was born August 17, 1909 and died January 12, 1932. (SS Death Index) 

John married Vivian Loretta Morgan. Vivian Loretta Morgan Scalph was born October 13, 1880 and died August 8, 1927. (Metz Mortuary database, York Co, NE).

Elmer Scalf states that John married Durian Moran. I have no knowledge of this marriage but it appears he might have looked at a record that was hard to decipher since the last name (Moran) is similar to Morgan. This was probably an error in the name listed by Elmer. This family can be followed through the 1930 census. They remained in Nebraska.

Note on the Garden County, Nebraska census that John O. is listed as a hired hand in the home of Charlie Howe. It is unknown if Vivian might have been Charlie's daughter or if there was any relationship at all to Charlie Howe, but it does raise speculation to her maiden name.

John's son Harley is listed on the social security death records as being born August 28, 1904 and died April 1976. His last address was Versailles (Morgan Co) Missouri.

John married Elizabeth Thompson on May 12, 1928. They are listed on the 1930 census.

John and his brother Ira were living in the home of William Alderson or Anderson at the enumeration of the 1900 Platte County, Nebraska census.

IRA ANDREW SCALPH
Son of
Alfred Scalph & Mary E. Wright
 Ira A Scalph<Alfred Scalph<Ira Scalf<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

Ira Andrew Scalph was born about April 10, 1881 and died September 12, 1912 (Doris Peterson).

Ira Andrew was one of the children living with the William Alderson/Anderson (?) family in Platte County, Nebraska in 1900. Although the age is slightly off, this does appear to be the same family. The name of Ira's wife on the 1910 census appears to be Lucela but we believe this is probably Luella or Lucille. Luella remarried after the death of Ira Andrew to Carl Polenski and is found on the1920 census of Pennington County, South Dakota. Esther, Loyd E. and Gilbert E. are in the home in 1920.

Esther is listed as 14 years old but this daughter did not show up on the 1910 census in Ira's home. Gilbert E. Scalph was born October 11, 1903 and died February 27, 1996. Gilbert's last address was Stanton (Stanton Co) Nebraska. He applied for his social security card before 1951 in Nebraska. (SS Indexes)

Claud Scalph, younger brother of Ira, was living in Ira's home in 1910. Claud was born May 10, 1895 and died August 1975. His last address was Fresno (Fresno Co) CA. He applied for his card before 1951 in Arizona.

Information found in a database on the Internet states that Luella and Ira were divorced; however, information from Doris Peterson states that Ira had died in 1912. His son, Loyd was born about 1910 so if Ira and Louella divorced it would have been between 1910 and 1912. This cannot be confirmed at this time.

Ira was living in the home of William Alderson or Anderson in 1900.

 Jesse Scalph<Alfred Scalph<Ira Scalf<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 


Jesse Ernest Scalph, son of Alfred and Emily Wright Scalph was born March 8, 1881 and died December 1965. His last address was not listed on the social security death records but he applied for his card in MO in 1956 and 1958. His wife is listed as Lillie M. on the 1930 census.

(Link to death certificate of Jessey E. Scalph)

Due to the supporting evidence, it is apparent that Jesse Ernest Scalph and Jack E. Scalph are the same person. They are about the same age, married to a Lilly, and Alfred Scalph is their father.

(Link to Jack E. Scalph and Miss Belle Carnelison marriage) Lillie, the daughter of John Matt Carnelison and Mary Taylor, is living with her family when the 1900 census was taken on June 12th and she married Jack E. Scalph on October 3, 1900. Lillie's full name is probably Lillie Belle Carnelison.

Very little is known of Lee Roy Scalph, son of Alfred and Mary Wright Scalph. His first wife was Lorinda Wilkerson. Lee and Lorinda had at least four children before their divorce. Lee was born February 20, 1891.

Children of Lee Roy Scalph and Lorinda:

  3) Vivian Scalph was born 1914 (census estimation) No further information.
  4) Bernice Scalph was born 1916 (census estimation) No further information.

Divorce of Lee Roy Scalph and Lorinda (Corinda?) Scalph:

PLAINTIFF / DEFENDANT

SCALPH, Corinda / SCALPH, Lee - 80343. Div 1. Final Decree 12 May 1921 Book 133 p 317. Default. Decree for Plaintiff. She is innocent and injured party. Plaintiff awarded care and custody of their minor children, Ira, Floyd, Vivian and Bernice Scalph. (Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)

In her research, Doris Peterson states that Lee Roy died 1892. We believe Doris might have found another Lee Roy and confused the two. This does appear to be Lee on the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census records and Lorinda is in the home until 1920. Lee remarried to Dollie Jones. We have no marriage date for Lee and Dollie.

(Link to Lee Roy Scalph death certificate)

Lorinda then remarried to Will Hale and had two children, Edith and Carl by 1930. This family was living in Green County, Missouri.

LEWIS STANTON SCALPH
Son of
Alfred Scalph & Mary E. Wright
 Lewis S Scalph<Alfred Scalph<Ira Scalf<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

Lewis Stanton Scalph, son of Alfred and Emily was born March 12, 1885 and was living with the James Watts family in 1900 in Webster County, Missouri. Lewis married Edith Mable Sterner on May 8, 1908. By 1910 Lewis and Edith are in Sioux County, Nebraska. This couple was living in the home of her parents, William D. and Agnes Sterner on the 1920 Madison County, Nebraska census. Lewis and Edith had three children at this time, Margaret B., Doris J., and Loyd.

Lewis was found in 1930 as a patient at the Nebraska State Hospital for the insane. It should be noted that not everyone who was a patient in a Sanitarium was there for insanity. Sanitariums were also used for tuberculosis and other illnesses.

Arteriosclerosis, Alzheimer's and other diseases of this nature seem to be a common illness in the Scalf family and do not necessarily affect just the elderly. The homeless were also committed to asylums in earlier years.

We have no information concerning why Lewis was in the State Hospital at this time.

However, a Lewis Stanton Scalph is listed on the SS Index with a death date of July 16, 1965. His last address was Mitchell, Nebraska.

The Social Security Index lists an Edith Scalph born 19 March 1879 and died April 1976 in Manteca (San Joaquin) California. Her social security card was issued before 1951 in Nebraska. This does appear to be Edith Sterner Scalph; however, we cannot confirm this. Edith Scalph. If this is Edith Sterner Scalph she would have been 97 years of age at her death

Claud Scalph son of Alfred Scalph and Mary E. Wright was born May 14, 1895. (Doris Peterson) Claud was born May 10, 1895 and died August 1975 according the Social Security Indexes.

What is known of Claude and his family was found on the 1930 census of Joplin, Missouri. ;  His wife is listed as Dora on this census but in the records of Doris Peterson, Claude was married to Lena, last name unknown.

Since we have no later censuses on Claude, Lena might have been a second wife. It appears that Dora would have been his first wife due to ages, etc. Claude and Dora were operating a boarding house in 1920 with nine borders. Dora was listed as Dorothy on the 1920 census.

ROSANNA (ROSA ANN) SCALF
 Daughter of
Ira Scalf and Rosanna Gibson
Rosanna<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

Rosanna (Rosa Ann) Scalf was next to the youngest daughter of Ira and Rosanna. Rosa's mother and her younger sister Pacify died when Rosa was around three years old. Rosa would have been about six years old when Ira married his second wife, Nancy Killion McVey. ; 

According to Scalf Family History and a marriage license from Doris Peterson, Rosanna (Rosa Ann) married William Weaver in Madison County, Kentucky on August 27, 1866. ;  (Marriage License) (Courtesy of Doris Peterson) David Scalf was a witness to this marriage.

The name on the marriage license of William Weaver could be RODA or ROSA considering the handwriting. It cannot be determined at this time whether Rosa Scalf married first to William Weaver in Kentucky or if this was actually intended to be RODA Scalf who married William Weaver. If Rosa married William Weaver first, we believe he might have died for she then married Andrew Jackson Wright June 4, 1867. If and when this can be determined this chapter will be updated.

Andrew and Rosa were not found on the 1870 census of Kentucky or Missouri but were found in 1880 living in Andrew County, Missouri. Andrew and Rosa were not found after this census.

Doris Peterson, DAR Registrar in Topeka, Kansas and the great-granddaughter of Rosa states that Rosa died September 21, 1881 in Rosendale (Andrew Co.) Missouri. Mrs. Peterson lists Rosa's date of birth as December 16, 1848. She also states that Andrew Jackson Wright was born June 26, 1845 in Madison County, Kentucky and died January 10, 1940. ;  Andrew and Rosa were married June 4, 1867 but no county or state is listed. It appears they were married in Madison County, Kentucky for their fist child, Martha, was born in Kentucky. The first child born in Missouri was William in 1870.

Four children of Andrew and Rosa were found on the 1880 census of Andrew County.

MARTHA BELLE WRIGHT
Daughter of

Martha B Wright<Rosanna Scalf<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 


Martha Belle Wright, daughter of Andrew Jackson Wright and Rosa Ann Scalf was born February 24, 1868 in Kentucky and died October 21, 1947 in Osage County, Kansas. ;  Martha married John H. Boyce March 14, 1884. John was born July 17, 1860 and died October 2, 1947 in Osage County, Kansas. (Doris Peterson)

Martha and John were found on the 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 census of Osage County, Kansas. Three of the children from the 1900 census do not appear in 1910 and may have married at this time. Martha states she had seven children with six living in 1900.

On the 1920 census, there is a John L. Boyce living next door to John and Martha. John is 26 years old and has a brother in the home. John L. is most likely John Leslie and his brother could be Henry from the 1910 census. The name is hard to determine on this census but it could possibly be Henry. These boys were born in Nebraska and their father in Illinois. Their mother was born in Kentucky. It is the opinion of the author that these two boys were sons of John and Martha.

Doris lost her husband to a malignant brain tumor just five years after their marriage. Their son, Kenny, was three years old when his father died. Doris taught school and is/was a DAR Registrar in Topeka, Kansas. Doris raised her son, Kenny, who graduated from Kansas University in 1963 with distinction, Phi Beta Kappa and a member of the Varsity Tennis Team along with other honors. Doris did not remarry but cared for her elderly mother until her mother passed away in 1966.

Doris was living in Topeka, Kansas at our last correspondence in 2001. Doris would be now be 87 or 88 years old if still living (2007). The author has not heard from Doris since 2001 and it is possible that she may no longer be with us.



IRA SCALF & NANCY (KILLION) McVey
Second wife of
Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

 
For more extensive information on these families, please see Scalf Family History, by Elmer D. Scalf, Chapter VI, pg. 129 – 154.

Ira Scalf, son of John Scalf Sr. and Edeah (Edy) Carlisle Scalf married second to Nancy Killion McVey, January 29, 1854. Nancy was the daughter of William Killion and Amanda Cole and the widow of James McVey.

Nancy was found living with her father and her children in 1850 Claiborne County, Tennessee. Her husband had been killed in a barroom brawl. Amanda Killion/Kilun was also in the home.

Children of James McVey and Nancy Killion from Scalf Family History:

  1) Mary McVey born 1838 married George M. Qualls (1854)
  2) Dan McVey born 1839 married Susan Scalf 1888 Knox Co. KY, daughter of Miles Scalf and Lucy Jackson Scalf.
  3) Eliza J. McVey born 1841.
  4) Joshua Watt McVey born 1843 married Rhoda Scalf, daughter of Peter and Charlotte Lottie Jackson Hubbard Scalf March 2, 1865 in Knox County, KY. (General Index to Marriages Knox

Ira and Nancy were not found on the 1860 census records and we are unable to confirm all of the names of their children at this time other than what is listed in Scalf Family History.

Nancy appears on the 1872 tax list in Kentucky indicating that Ira had died by 1872. She was then found as head of house in 1880 on the census records. The following children of Ira and Nancy were taken from Scalf Family History written by Elmer D. Scalf.


 

ANDREW BUD ANDY SCALF
Son of
Ira Scalf/Nancy Killion McVey
 "Bud Andy"<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

Andrew (Bud Andy) Scalf was born about 1855 in Kentucky according to census records, which correlates closely to the marriage of his parents, Ira Scalf and Nancy (Killion) McVey Scalf. However, his death certificate states 1844. We know this cannot be correct for Ira was married to Rosanna Gibson at that time. His death certificate states he was 72 years old when he died; however, Bud Andy would have been around 61 years old at his death.

 Andrew was known as Bud Andy.  He is found on census records listed only as Andrew. It would have helped tremendously had he been listed with his nickname on the census records since there certainly seemed to be no shortage of the name (Andrew) in the Scalf family. However, we have compiled these records to the best of our ability and hope we have separated the various men named Andrew correctly into their respective family lines.

Bud Andy was the oldest child of Ira Scalf and Nancy Killion McVey Scalf. His first wife, Emily Scalf, was the daughter of Peter Scalf and Charlotte Hubbard. Peter and Ira Scalf were brothers.

Following the prior writings of Henry and Elmer Scalf, there appears to be a few conflicts in the statements concerning Andrew and his four marriages. The 1880 Laurel County, Kentucky census does show Andrew and his wife Emily with their family. From prior writings, it is stated that Emily Scalf married first to Jason Hubbard in Knox County, Kentucky March 16, 1871; however, if correct, this would have been a short marriage for she then married her cousin Andrew Scalf (aka Bud Andy) August 26, 1872. (Scalf Family History, page 144)

By the enumeration of the 1900 census Andrew has no wife, but Elmer Scalf reports that Andrew married second to Eliza Broughton in Knox County on May 26, 1898. Eliza was the daughter of Martin Broughton and Peggy Smith. Eliza had also been married prior to this marriage. Eliza died before the 1900 census was enumerated and Andrew is listed with three children in the home in 1900. There does not appear to be any children from this marriage according to the census records.

It is also stated in Scalf Family History that Andrew was living in Laurel County in 1900 with two of his children; however, the 1900 census record of Laurel County shows there were three children in the home.

Since Andrew remarried in 1898 and his third child on the 1900 census was born about 1887, these children would most likely have been the children of Emily and Andrew, which causes some confusion concerning the statement that Andrew and Emily divorced and Emily remarried to Stephen Morgan in 1886. If Andrew did not remarry for the second time until 1898 and his children were born up to 1887, this would cause some speculation as to whether this Emily was the one who married Stephen Morgan in 1886 unless dates are incorrect.

Elmer states that on the marriage application of Andrew Scalf and Christine Jones that Andrew was divorced from one wife and two others had died. This is a total of four marriages for Andrew. If the ages are correct or near correct for the children on these census records, it would seem strange for Emily to marry in 1886 to Stephen Morgan when a child allegedly belonging to Emily and Andrew was born in 1887. However, as we have so commonly found in family research, the census records are not always accurate.

Elmer reports that Andrew returned from Laurel to Knox County and married Margaret Hinkle Baker on January 12, 1906. Margaret was the daughter of Bob Hinkle and her marriage to Andrew was a second marriage for her. Margaret is reported to have died not long after her marriage to Andrew and Andrew remarried once again to Christine Jones according to Scalf Family History, in Knox County, Kentucky on March 17, 1911. Elmer Scalf believed Christine's maiden name to have been Spurlock.

However, a descendant of this line submitted information to the Scalf Family website to correct the prior writings concerning this marriage.

Andrew Bud Andy Scalf married Christine Hensley in Knox County. Christine was the daughter of Thomas Hensley and Elizabeth Radford. Christine Hensley had been married to Robert Jones prior to her marriage to Bud Andy Scalf. Hence, the name Christine Jones was found on the marriage record. Christine Hensley's father had died when her mother was pregnant with her.

Elizabeth Radford Hensley, mother of Christine, then married Elkanah Spurlock after the death of Thomas Hensley. Elkanah signed the bond for the marriage of Robert Jones and Christine Hensley; therefore, causing Elmer Scalf to assume that Elkanah was the father of Christine (Hensley) Jones Scalf. Robert Jones and Christine Hensley had six children:

  1) Patton Jones.
  2) Betsy Jones.
  3) William Jones.
  4) James Jones.
  5) Sarah Jones
  6) Henry Jones.

Robert Jones died before 1910 and Christine then remarried to Andrew Bud Andy Scalf. Betsy Jones, a daughter of Robert Jones and Christine Hensley Jones Scalf also married Daniel Scalf son of Bud Andy Scalf and Emily.

The following insert is from William Swanson a descendant of this line. This information confirms what the author was told by another descendant of this line several years ago. This descendant also stated that Bud Andy married Christine Hensley Jones.

CORRECTIONS TO SCALF FAMILY HISTORY (Courtesy of William Swanson)

CHAPTER 6 - p. 144 lists 4th wife of Andrew "Bud Andy" Scalf as Christine Jones. She was Christina Hensley.

Christina was d/o Thomas Hensley and Elizabeth Radford. Elizabeth Radford married 2nd Elkanah Spurlock (Thomas died in 1864-Mollie Scalf (d/o Daniel Scalf & Betsy Jones) said that Elizabeth was pregnant with Christina when Thomas died in 1864. He was on leave from the 7th Ky. Union) Christina Hensley (b. abt. 1865 Clay Co., KY) married Robert Jones (bond lists her as a Hensley and Elkanah Spurlock signed it). Robert & Christina had 6 children Patton Jones (my g gf), Betsy Jones (married Daniel SCALF), William Jones, James Jones, Sarah Jones & Henry Jones. Robert Jones died by 1910.

Patton Jones married 3 times. 1st married 1908 Harlan Co., Ky ROSA SCALF d/o Andrew Scalf; Patton was listed as a widow when he married his 2nd wife. No known children of Patton & Rosa. 2nd Molly Early 3rd Leota Spurlock (d/o Levi Spurlock & Feby McFadden; Levi was s/o Elkanah Spurlock & Elizabeth Radford) (Courtesy of William Swanson).

Bud Andy Scalf appears on the 1910 census living in the home of his son, Daniel and wife Betsy Jones Scalf. Betsy was the daughter of Robert Jones and Christina Hensley Jones Scalf. Margaret Baker and Bud Andy married in 1906 and he was remarried by 1911. Margaret Baker Scalf died before the 1910 census was enumerated and Bud Andy married again after this enumeration; so neither of these wives were enumerated with Andrew. We have no information to confirm which of these wives died and which ones were divorced other than the information written by Elmer Scalf and what the census records reflect.

By 1920 Andrew was not found and Christina Hensley Jones Scalf appears with her son Patton Jones in the home indicating that this is the same Christina Hensley Jones who married Andrew Bud Andy Scalf. Her son Patton was born 1884 and her other children were born beginning in 1896 with the last one born 1903. Christina and Andrew married March 17, 1911 in Knox County, Kentucky.

Scalf Family History, page 145 reports that Patton Jones married Rosie Scalf, daughter of William Sweet William Scalf and Emily Scalf Hubbard. The marriage of Patton Jones and Rosie Scalf took place in 1908 in Harlan County, Kentucky and William Swanson also confirmed this information.

William also reported that Patton was listed as widowed when he married the second time. According to Scalf Family History, Rosie Scalf Jones married first to John Jackson. It appears there were no children from either of Rosie's marriages. No other information has been found on these families.

Patton Jones married the second time to Molly Early and third to Leota Spurlock daughter of Levi Spurlock and Feby McFadden. Levi Spurlock was the son of Elkanah Spurlock and Elizabeth Radford. Elkanah Spurlock was the stepfather of Christine Hensley Jones Scalf, fourth wife of Bud Andy Scalf.

Andrew Bud Andy Scalf was not found after the 1910 census and it is assumed that he died 1910-1920; however, descendents may have more accurate information concerning his death.

In 1880, Andrew Bud Andy and Emily are shown with four children in the home and a niece, Emaline (appears to be Quanlis but is likely Qualls or Quarrels).

Children of Bud Andy Scalf and Emily Scalf from the 1880 census:

  1) Charlotte born about 1873.
  2) James born about 1875.
  3) William born about 1876.
  4) Abba (Abby) born about 1878.

Children of Bud Andy Scalf and Emily Scalf, page 144 Scalf Family History:

  1) William.
  2) Daniel.
  3) Abby.
  4) Lottie.
  5) Catherine.
  6) Rosie.
  7) Marie

Elmer Scalf states that the children were all born between 1872 and 1886. We have no 1890 census so we assume the last three children were born after 1880 and had left home or died by the enumeration of the 1900 census.

Another daughter was born to Bud Andy and Emily in 1880 probably after the enumeration of the census. This was Elmira Scalf. Elmira died young but married Madison/Matison Hubbard before her death and it is suspected that she may have died in childbirth to their daughter, Daly.

In 1900 Andrew as living in Laurel County, Kentucky. Emily was not listed on this census indicating that Emily had died or they had divorced. Charlotte (Lottie), Daniel and Rosey were still at home.

Andrew Bud Andy was born 1844 according to his death certificate and died January 22, 1916 at the age of 72. He was born in Knox County, Kentucky to Aree Scalf, (mother unknown). No physician was in attendance at the death of Andrew and there is no cause of death listed. Andrew Bud Andy Scalf is buried at the Owens Cemetery in Knox County, Kentucky. W. M. Scalf was the informant for the death certificate. We believe this was his son William Sweet William Scalf. (Death Certificate – Courtesy of Virgil Scalf) (Link to death certificate)

 

JAMES SAMUEL SCALF
Son of
Andrew Scalf & Emiline Scalf
James<Emiline<Peter<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
James<Andrew<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 

James Samuel Scalf, son of Andrew and Emily Scalf, was born April 25, 1874 in Laurel County, KY, according to his WWI Registration Card and died at 7:00 P.M. Sunday, October 3, 1965 at Beverly Hills Sanatorium (Tuberculosis Hospital) in Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee. ;We believe James married first to Sarah Knuckles Northern on December 31, 1895. Sarah appears to have married H. E. Northern first and James Scalf second. James and Sarah had Jessie, Mary, and Martha in 1900 and were living at Rockcastle County, Kentucky. James Scalf's second wife was Sallie Guinn Young Branaman, the daughter of John and Margaret Guinn. ;Later, James married (3) Margaret Radford - born about 1897, (4) Flossie Cupp and (5) Nervesta (Vesta) Cress. Vesta was born February 1, 1895 and died December 25, 1989 in Leon County, Florida.

The story of James Samuel Scalf is very complicated and, at times, hard to follow. He was a traveling salesman, married at least five times, and was the father of several children. Over the years and for several reasons, he was never available when the census was recorded until 1940.

By 1910, James is married to Sallie who appears to have been Sallie Guinn Young Branaman. Sallie had been married previously to a Young and again to a Branaman. Two stepdaughters; Pearl and Hattie Young were in the home of James and Sallie.

In 1910, Sarah Knuckles Scalf was married to Clint Northern. She was found with four Scalf children in the home, the first three being the same children listed in the home of James and Sarah in 1900. The last child, Isabell, was apparently born around the time of their divorce. Phillip and Ira Northern were sons of Clint Northern born 1905-1909. We have not determined the relationship of Clint to the first husband of Sarah. ;

WILLIAM SWEET WILLIAM SCALF
Son of
Andrew "Bud Andy" Scalf/Emily Scalf Hubbard
 William<Andrew "Bud Andy"<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

William Scalf, also known as Sweet William was born May 8, 1873 in Clay County, Kentucky to Andrew and Emily Scalf Hubbard. ;His father was the son of Ira Scalf and Nancy Killion McVey Scalf. His mother was the daughter of Peter Scalf and Charlotte Lottie Jackson Scalf. William married first to Delia (Della) A. Smith February 21, 1895 in Laurel County, Kentucky. ;(Scalf Family History, pg. 145)

William left his family and Mary (daughter of William and Della) was living with her grandmother Margaret Smith in 1900. This is confirmed by the 1900 census of Laurel County, Kentucky.

By 1910 all three daughters were in the Louisville Baptist Orphanage. By 1920 only one child (Nancy) was found in the Louisville Baptist Orphanage. Her name is listed as Jane in 1920 but she appears to be the same person as Nancy in 1910. Elmer Scalf reports that a son, Henderson, was born to William and Delia but died young.

Mary, daughter of Sweet William and Della Smith later married Reverend Matt Lanham (1916 Laurel County, KY) and they were found on the 1920 Laurel County census. Her sister, Margaret is living in the home. Mary and her husband both died in 1948 and are buried at the Felts Church Cemetery at Lilly, Kentucky. (Scalf Family History, pg. 145)

Scalf Family History, page 146 also states that Margaret married a Hoover and Jane ran away from the orphanage and married at a young age. We have no information on Margaret or Jane other than what is listed in Scalf Family History.

William Sweet William Scalf married second to Margaret (Gray) Owens who had also been married prior to her marriage to William. Margaret had four sons when she married William: John, Milton, Clifton and Chris Owens. William and Margaret had a son Tilford who is listed in the home in 1920.

William and Margaret married September 23, 1908 in Laurel County, Kentucky. Elmer Scalf states that Margaret had two children by a previous marriage but four were found on the 1910 Laurel County, Kentucky census. (Scalf Family History, pg. 145)

William and Margaret also had a son Tilford Scalf whom Elmer believed married a Messer and moved to Connersville, Indiana and raised a family. The 1910 census confirms that Tilford was a son of William and Margaret.

Margaret Smith Scalf was born March 29, 1868 in Kentucky, the daughter of Van Gray. Her mother was a Profit but her first name is unknown. Margaret died December 10, 1924 at the age of 54 years, 11 months and 7 days. She was married at the time of her death. Margaret is buried at the Owens Cemetery in Emanuel, Kentucky. The informant for her death certificate was her husband, W. M. Scalf. (Death Certificate Courtesy of Virgil Scalf)

Charlotte Lottie Scalf was born about 1873-1875 in Laurel County, Kentucky.  According to Scalf Family History, Catherine married Albert Hunter and had one son, Chester. She then married Robert Robinson and had another son Robert Robinson Jr. Chester Hunter married Edna Farris. (Scalf Family History, pg. 150)

This information is questionable for the census records reveal that Emily Catherine Scalf (sister of Charlotte) was the wife of Albert Hunter. We believe Elmer might have been confused between Charlotte and Emily Catherine Scalf.

EMILY CATHERINE SCALF
Daughter of
Andrew "Bud Andy" Scalf & Emily Scalf
Emily Catherine<Andrew "Bud Andy"<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

 
Emily Catherine Scalf is reported to have been a daughter of Andrew and Emily. She was born about 1880 according to the 1910 census of Laurel County, Kentucky. Emily might have been born after the enumeration of the 1880 census and this would explain why she was not listed with Andrew and Emily in the home that year.

By the enumeration of the 1900 census, Emily Scalf and Andrew had either divorced or Emily had died but their daughter Emily Catherine has not been found on the 1900 census. She may have been with her mother or with relatives. Emily was found on the 1910 and 1920 censuses married to Albert Hunter. They had two known children, Chester and Robert.

Elmer Scalf reports that Emily remarried to Robert Robinson but this family was not found. Charlotte Scalf, sister of Emily is also reported to have married Albert Hunter and Robert Robinson. ; (Scalf Family History, pg. 150)

We cannot confirm or deny the information listed in Scalf Family History concerning Charlotte Lottie Scalf and her marriages for we have been unable to find information on her.

ROSEY A. SCALF
Daughter of

Rosey A<Andrew "Bud Andy"<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf

Rosey A. Scalf daughter of Bud Andy Scalf and Emily Scalf was born about 1887 according to the 1900 census of Laurel County, Kentucky. We have no information for Rosey at this time.



DANIEL SCALF
Son of
Andrew "Bud Andy" Scalf & Emily Scalf
 Daniel<Andrew "Bud Andy"<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 


Daniel Scalf, son of Andrew and Emily Scalf was born about 1884 – 1889 depending on which census record you are reading. Daniel died January 29, 1953 at the age of 67. (Kentucky death Records Index) Scalf Family History lists his date of birth as May 8, 1884. Betsy was the daughter of Robert Jones and Christine Hensley.

Daniel married Betsy Jones August 21, 1908 in Boering, Kentucky at the home of her parents. It appears that her name was Mary Elizabeth (Betsy) Jones according to the 1910 and 1920 census of Laurel County, Kentucky. Mary Elizabeth (Betsy) Jones Scalf died 4 November 1879 at the age of 87 years old. (Kentucky Death Records Index)

Daniel's father, Andrew, was living in the home in 1910 and listed as widowed. Dan and Betsy had at least seven children, one girl and six boys. Dan died January 29, 1953 and Betsy died in 1979. Both are buried at the Hopkins Cemetery near Lily, Kentucky. (Scalf Family History, pg. 147)

Although there were several men named Andrew in the family and with daughters named Rosa, it certainly appears that Rosey A., daughter of Andrew and Emily might have been the first wife of Patton Jones. Most all of the other children named Rosa in the Scalf family are accounted for. However, we have no information on this Rosa. If Patton Jones and Rosa Scalf married around 1908, this Rosa would have been 21 years old at that time and certainly old enough to marry. Patton was listed as widowed when he remarried.

Patton Jones married 3 times. 1st married 1908 Harlan Co., Ky Rosa Scalf d/o Andrew Scalf; Patton was listed as a widow when he married his 2nd wife. No known children of Patton & Rosa.  (Courtesy of William Swanson)

  CHARLES CLARK SCALF
Son of
Ira Scalf & Nancy Killion McVey
 Charles<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

Clark Scalf, son of Ira and Nancy was born around 1857. Clark married Malinda Holder April 15, 1881. Scalf Family History, page 151 relates that Elmer was not sure what Malinda's maiden name was. An excerpt from the book is listed here:

The author will present the facts here and let the reader draw his or her own conclusions. The Laurel County records clearly indicate that Clark and Malinda were married on April 15, 1881. The same record shows this as Clark's first marriage and Malinda's second. Clark was 21, according to the record and Malinda was 10. However, in the 1880 Laurel County Census, there is listed a family unit with Nancy, Clark's mother as head of the household. Her age is given as 61. Malinda is listed as 23, Clark 20 and John D. 5. (Scalf Family History, pg. 151)

From the 1880 census, it appears that Malinda was living with Nancy Killion McVey Scalf and had been married prior to her marriage to Nancy's son Clark. Malinda is listed as Malinda Broton (Broughton) in the home of Nancy. Clark Scalf and Malinda were single at this time but then married April 15, 1881.

Melinda's son from her prior marriage, John D. Broton, was in the home. However, Clark Scalf was also listed as Clark Broton. We believe the enumerator was confused with the family surnames on this census. This information was confusing and Elmer was not clear on who the father of John D. was. Considering that the marriage record named her as Malinda Holder and stated this to be a second marriage, coupled with the fact she is listed as Malinda Broton (Broughton) in 1880 suggests to this author that she was Malinda Holder Broughton Scalf and had a son John D. Broton (Broughton) from her previous marriage.

We believe that John D. Broton (Broughton) might have grown up under the name of John D. Scalf and may or may not have known his mother was married prior to her marriage to Clark. Elmer states in his book that John was born 1883 and died 1966. He married 1) Lizzie Mullins and 2) Sarah Brock. The 1880 census lists his age as 5 years old calculating a birth date of 1875.

The death certificate of Clark Scalf states that he was living in Lily (Laurel County) Kentucky at the time of death. He is listed as being born in 1852, which conflicts with the marriage date of his parents. His father is listed as Ira Scalf and mother, Nancy and it states he was born in Kentucky. His cause of death was apoplexy. Clark had been sick from March to May of 1919. The informant for the death certificate was John Scalf, presumably, John D. Broton (Broughton?) (Death Certificate courtesy of Virgil Scalf) (Link to Death Certificate)

Clark is listed as 57 years old in 1910 but should have been closer to 50. Linda Scalf listed on the Kentucky Death Records Index might have been this Malinda Scalf. If so, she died October 24, 1941 at that age of 78.

John is also buried at the McHargue Cemetery.

We have not been able to find this family on the 1900 or later census records. There may have been more children. Note that Elmer lists Henderson A. Scalf but does not list William Scalf. William is listed on the 1910 census but no Peter or Henderson is listed on the census record. Also, note that Elmer has Peter married to Nancy Hurd/Herd and listed on page 152 as Robert Peter Scalf. Note also that the 1920 Laurel County, Kentucky census lists him as Robert W. Scalf. Could this have been William Robert Peter Scalf?

 

JOHN SCALF (BROUGHTON?)
Son of
Malinda Holder Broughton Scalf
 

John D. Scalf (Broughton?) was the son of Malinda Holder Broughton Scalf and appears to have been a son by her first marriage. If John was the son of a prior marriage, John did not use the name Broughton but was found as Scalf on census records with the exception of the 1880 census where he was listed as John D. Broton. John would have been born around 1875 for her was five years old in 1880. Clark and Malinda were married April 15, 1881.

John is buried at the McHargue Cemetery where Clark is buried. We believe John was the informant of the death certificate of Clark Scalf.

 Malinda was living in the home of her son John in 1920 and listed as a widow. John was also widowed in 1920. Martha, Sallie, and Speed (siblings of John) were also in the home. Malinda was still living in the home of her son John and his second wife in 1930.

HENDERSON SCALF
Son of
Charles Clark Scalf & Malinda Holder
Henderson<Clark<Ira<John Sr<Lewis Scalf 
 

Henderson Scalf, son of Clark and Malinda was born 1884-1888 (census calculation). His age varies on census records, which estimates various birth dates ranging from 1884 to 1888. Henderson married Betsy Jane Garland in Laurel County, Kentucky on December 7, 1909. Henderson and Betsy had no children. The children in the home in 1930 were the children of his brother Robert Scalf and Nancy Hurd/Herd Scalf.

A Betsy Scalf is listed on the Kentucky Death Records Index and believed to have been this Betsy Scalf. If this is correct, Betsy died 4 January 1974 in Knox County, Kentucky at the age of 80. (Kentucky Death Records Index)

We can only confirm the name of Peter W; however, he may have had all three names.

William Swanson provided us with a correction on this information as well:

CHAPTER 6 - p. 152 under ROBERT "PETER" SCALF reads originally:

Correction: Nancy Hurd was d/o John Herd & Salina Spurlock. Salina married 2nd Andy Burns. Salina was d/o Elkanah Spurlock & Elizabeth Radford (Courtesy of William Swanson.)
