Abraham Huddleston

4th generation
son of William Huddleston

3c6) ABRAHAM was born in 1774, Bedford County, Va.  Four years before he was born, in 1770, his father, William had moved from Bucks Co., Pa to Bedford Co. in 1770 with Abe’s uncles, Daniel & Abraham and aunt Huldah Montgomery.  Then about 1785 William and Daniel moved on to the Kanawha Valley, (West) Virginia.
    Abraham was 19 years old on March 2, 1793, when he married in Bedford Co., Va. to MARY (Ellen?) ALLEN (b 1777, Va.; daug of Ann ?)  Since his father had moved 8 years before to West Virginia, maybe he went back to Bedford County to visit his uncle Abraham's family and met her. Or maybe he knew her before they moved away and went back to marry her.

    Probably the next year after their marriage (about 1794) Abraham and Mary moved to Smith Co., Tennessee, probably with his brother Henry & family, and his unmarried sister, Polly Huddleston (she seems to have stayed with Abraham).  They lived in Tennessee for about 24 years before moving again. (Huddlestons in Tennessee).

About 1818/19 they moved again to Pope Co., IL where they were listed in the 1820 census.  
But Illinois didn't hold their attention for very long. Within a couple of years they moved to the Ozarks of southern Missouri. 1830 Missouri

    "... most modern scholars agree that the name Ozarks originated as an English-speaking corruption of the French prepositional phrase, aux arcs (pronounced ohs ark), a shortened form meaning "toward or to Arkansas" or "to Arkansas Post," a fur-trading post. Arkansas was also the name of an Indian tribe in the Lower Mississippi region, and aux arcs could also refer to those Indians and by extension to the mountains where they lived. An English traveler by the name of John Bradbury first used the name Ozark in print in 1809. The term Ozark Mountains first appeared on a map by government explorer S. H. Long in 1815, and historians generally agree that Major Long officialized the distinctive name." [from A Living History of the Ozarks, by Phyllis R. Modeland, 1992]

    Oct. 6, 1821 they settled near what is now Thomasville (Moore township) Oregon County, Mo.  They were some of the first white families to settle in that county (others early ones were Smith, Thomas & Perkins, whose family members often married the Huddlestons).  Charles Hatcher was the first settler near Thomasville in 1809, when settlement began in the area. The Smiths moved in in 1814. By 1845 there were only about 700 people in the whole county. What is now Oregon County was originally part of Wayne County (see 1830 Missouri map, Wayne county is the large one in the south); then in 1833 when Ripley County was formed it was part of it; and then in 1845 it became Oregon County, with Thomasville, the original county seat.  

    The Huddlestons settled on the Eleven Points River, 3 miles below Thomasville.  Abraham’s sister, Polly lived with them there.  His brother Henry’s daughter, Unity Wright also lived there with her husband & family; and perhaps Henry’s son, Anthony also lived around there. Anthony's sons were in Washington County, Mo.  Today, there are still many, many Huddlestons in Oregon County, mainly because Abraham had 10 sons!  
    Thomasville is the oldest settlement in Oregon and Howell Counties.  Located in the broad valley of the Eleven Points River and Middle Fork, slightly west of the confluence, it has been called the "Garden Spot of Oregon County."  Thomasville was selected as the county seat of newly formed Oregon County in 1845. In 1857 Oregon County was divided into smaller counties creating Howell county, and in 1859 the county seat was moved to Alton. Thomasville was a place to enlist in the Confederate Army during the Civil War.  Most of the Union enlistment seems to have been in Howell County.  Different gangs of bushwhackers and the "Sons of Liberty" were active in the area.  Some of the gangs would steal horses from the Union Army at Rolla and rob supply lines between Rolla and Springfield and then escape into Oregon and Shannon Counties.  After recovering from the devastation of the Civil War, Thomasville prospered during the years of the big timber companies.  There was a logging camp up the Birch Tree Hollow north of Thomasville and railroad spur lines running from Birch Tree.  After the pine had been clear-cut, the railroads by-passed the area. When Howell County was sectioned off as a separate county, the Oregon county seat was moved to Alton, to a more central location, so losing the county seat, the population of Thomasville declined, though the farms continued to flourish. During its heyday Thomasville had a bank, a newspaper, a canning factory, a hotel and a high school.

    Abraham & Mary had 12 children. By the time Abraham died, Feb. 1, 1858, at the age of 84, only four of them were living—Nancy Thomas, Charles, Benjamin, and Abraham, Jr. (who died 3 days after his father].  So before his death,
WILLIAM probably died before 1840,
ISRAEL died about 1839,
JOHN died before 1850,
MARSHALL died 1852,
MARTHA probably died in 1855,
NATHAN died in 1856,
JESSE died sometime before 1858, and 
JOSEPH died Dec., 1857 (6 weeks before his father). 
Then, after Abraham died, ABRAHAM, JR. died 3 days later on Feb. 4, 1858. 
NANCY died sometime after 1860,
CHARLES died 1872,
BENJAMIN died 1904. 
I don't know when Mary died.

2. Charles Huddleston
3c6b) CHARLES was born Jan. 26, 1796, Va.  In Smith Co, Tn he served in the War of 1812. married 1st July 8, 1819, Pope Co., IL1 to Milberry Wright (b NC; 7 Ch); was in Johnson Co., IL in 1820 with wife and baby. He may have moved to Thomasville, Mo about 1825, where he lived until he died.  
He married 2nd 1852, Mrs. Mary (Thomas) Humphreys (1 Ch).  Charles was a Justice of the Peace for Ripley Co. and performed many marriages 1835-44. He died April 10, 1872 without a will, but the first action on his estate says, “...J.R. Woodside administrator of the estate of Charly Huddleston do swear that said deceased was without will, as it is said that he left him as follows towit: Mary Huddleston his wife, Charles Huddleston, Lilli Humphrey, Eliza Lewis, her children who reside in Oregon Co, Mo, as well as the heirs of Mrs. Dial his daughter, and the children of Wm. Aldridge and the children of Nathan Huddleston."
Children:
Milberry’s children:

3c6b2)     ELIZABETH HUDDLESTON, b 1824, IL; m William Dial, Sept. 1, 1842
3c6b3)     NATHAN HUDDLESTON, b 1826, MO; m 1st, July 14, 1844, MO to Lucinda Casey (maybe daug of John Clark Casey); m 2nd June 4, 1848, MO to Mary Aldridge (daughter of Jonathan). Nathan was killed by Bushwhackers near Thomasville during the Civil War.  Missouri Confederate dead lists: “Nathaniel Huddleston, d Thomasville, Mar 26, 1862”.
    His grandson, Gus Jolliff, said in 1932 that when his grandfather was killed, the same band killed all his sons, but I have no record of any sons, only 3 daughters.  Gus Jolliff also said that Nathan's family "was not members of the Huddleston family so many of which now live in the Rover community." This would lead us to believe that he was not the son of Charles. However, Charles had a son named Nathan listed in his probate records as an heir and that he died before 1872. Also he named his first child, Milberry after his mother.
    Probably since Nathan had only sisters and died young himself, his children were essentially cut off from the rest of the Huddlestons, and they were all too distantly related to his children.

marriage record of John Huddleston & Mary Baty













4.  John W. Huddleston
3c6d) JOHN was born in 1802 in Smith Co, TN. His middle name isn't proven, though some think it was "West". [His daughter-in-law, Margaret Maulding was the daughter of John West Maulding. Maybe there's some confusion with him or maybe there was a "John West" who both men were named for.]
He married Mary Baty (b 1800, KY; daug of William Baty), June 21, 1823, Pope Co, IL1 where the Baty family also lived..  (He didn’t move to Missouri with his father in 1821, but he finally joined the rest of the Missouri clan about 1824 and settled near Thomasville in the “Huddleston Settlement” which at the time was in Wayne Co, MO in 1830; Ripley Co in 1840 and finally in 1845 became Oregon Co.

5. Israel Huddleston
3c6e) ISRAEL HUDDLESTON, b 1803, TN; m abt 1826 to Malinda Baty (b 1813; sister of Mary, wife of John W. Huddleston).  In 1830 he & Malinda were in Wayne Co, MO with son, William Sampson (b 1828).  They had 3 more daughters and he died about 1839.  In 1840 Malinda was in Ripley Co, MO (same place) with their 4 children.  She married John Miles Goodwin, July 27, 1841, Ripley Co., MO.  She could not (as one source claims) have been married to Abraham Huddleston, Jr. (3c6h) instead of Israel for the following reasons:
1. In 1830 Israel was in Wayne Co, MO with wife (b 1810-15) & 1 son (b 1825-30).  Malinda & William Sampson fit these ages.  Abe Jr. in 1830 was 21 years old, unmarried, and still living with his parents. The census shows 5 sons living at home: William, Abe Jr, Marshall, Jesse & Benjamin.
2. In 1840 Israel is not in the census, but Malinda is listed with 1 son (b 1825-30) who is William Sampson, and 3 daughters (one b 1830-35 & two b 1835-40), the two younger girls were Martha (1837) and Nancy (1839).  Abe Jr. in 1840 was with his wife Jane and their 3 oldest daughters: Elizabeth (1836), Charnelcy (1838) and Nancy (1840).  Abe’s Martha was born in 1842, so she and Nancy were both born after Abe married Jane and were not the same Martha & Nancy born to Malinda (Baty) Huddleston.
3. By 1850 Malinda was married to Mills Goodwin (July 28, 1841, Ripley Co, Mo) and had her 2 younger Huddleston children living with them (Martha, 13 & Nancy, 11).  In 1850 Abe Jr. and Jane also had their Nancy (10) and Martha (8) living with them.  
Children of ISRAEL HUDDLESTON & Malinda Baty:

Baty) b May 8, 1828; m Sept. 20, 1848, Madison Co., Mo. to Eliza Brewer (b Apr 1, 1829, sister of Polly Brewer Colyott, whose daughter, Sarah Jane Colyott, married John Willard).  He died Feb 9, 1890.

7. William Huddleston
3c6g) WILLIAM was probably born around 1807 in Smith County, Tennessee and named for his grandfather, William Huddleston.  Can find no actual record of him, but the ages of his siblings leave room for a child born in 1807.  He probably didn’t die young, because the 1830 census shows Abraham Sr. with 5 sons living at home.  Since his first 5 sons are listed separately as heads of their own households, William must still be alive and one of the unmarried sons (the others being Abraham Jr, Marshall, Jesse, & Benjamin).  He may have been the husband of Mrs. Nancy Huddleston, who was on the Ripley County census of 1840 with 1 daug (b 1825-30) & 1 son (b 1835-40).  If this is so, then William married after 1830 and then died before 1840.
