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
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.
"... 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.

3c6a) NANCY was born about 1794; married about 1815 to William Thomas (son
of Ephriam); in 1830 they were listed in Wayne Co., MO. William Thomas was
the first settler in present-day Oregon County to purchase and own land.
He bought 40 acres from the United States 11 Aug 1832. [Patent #1144] in Moore
Twp., Sec 31, Twp 25, R5. By 1840 Nancy was a widow; in 1850 & 1860 she
was living with her son, George in Oregon Co., Mo. Children:

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."

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.

(his brother Nathan was appointed administrator Jan 4, 1858; Nathan died

marriage record of John Huddleston & Mary Baty
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. He died before 1850.

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
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.

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.

In 1850 Harriett’s children, Henry & Martha, were still living with
their grandparents, Abraham & Mary Huddleston. They probably remained
with them when their father remarried. In 1850 Jesse & Milla were
in Oregon Co. with hers & Rachael’s children. Jesse died before
1858. All of Jesse’s children:

Baughman in Iron Co, MO); Ch: Harriett (b 1859)

[In 1860 there was a Martha Huddleston (age 20) living alone with a baby Harriett
(age 6/12 months). This may be Martha, daughter of Jesse, since her
mother’s name was Harriett. Or it could be that Martha was taking care
of Henry’s baby Harriett who would have been that age—not sure why?
