    Notes:

    SPECIAL MEMORIES OF Leroy: I talked with him about the old carriage that his father would let the kids use to go to school when he didn't need the horses. He called it the coupe of carriages, It was totally enclosed with a glass windshield for the sides it had windows and doors. Not a normal carriage that we would see these days. His father had 4 horses, and it usually took all 4 horses for the farm equipment. But when he didn't need one of the horses, the kids could use one to go to school. When he moved out and married, he moved to the Grinnell area, he remembers working at the Ford Garage, earning $15.00 a week. The apartment that they rented cost $25.00 a month, until they found one for $15.00 a month. He worked at the glove factory as so many did in the Grinnell area. For him he told me so many times you do what you need to to survive in this world. When his father became ill, they moved out to a farm, Leroy has spent most of his life farming, it was his lifes work and he was proud of it. He milked cows, raised hogs, he several chickens over the years. Still living on the farm but now renting out the farm grounds. He specially enjoys working in the garden now that he is retired.

    Memories of Pam McGerr: He was always a quiet man to me,

    Everett married Helen Lavera Stuart [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    David and Myrtle spent a large share of their life moving across the county side. If you notice their children birth places, they moved to Iowa, Virginia, Ohio and finally back to Iowa where they finally settled for good.

    David and Myrtle met while both were attending College in West Virginia or Virginia. David studies to be a teacher. However we are unsure as to what happened to his ambitions. David worked as a plumber in North English and later moved to a farm 5 miles north of North English. David lost the farm after a series of flood stricken years and moved to Grinnell, still working as a plumber. Recollection is it was for Ritter Hardware and later for the Grinnell College.

    David was diagnosed with Cancer, and was hospitalized in Iowa City.

    David married Myrtle Edith Pettibone 12 Nov 1895, Marion, Iowa. Myrtle (daughter of Benjamin F. Pettibone and Ellen R. Warner) was born 31 May 1876, North English, Iowa County, Iowa; died 18 Dec 1964, Des Moines, , Iowa; was buried Hazelwood Cemetery, Grinnell, Iowa. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    Edith, as most refer to, her father committed suicide when she was young and her mother died during childbirth. Her Aunt & Uncle, Frank & Elly Warner took her in and raised her. Although she felt that she had to work harder then her cousins which were all boys, they did send her to college in West Virginia or Virginia, and this is where she met David Curtis Brubaker. Frank & Elly Warner lived on a farm east of North English and kept in close contact with Edith and her family.

    SPECIAL MEMORIES OF PAM BRUBAKER MCGERR: I remember going to great grandma's home all of the time when I was really young, she was always wearing her apron and seemed to know I was coming because she always had fresh baked cookies waiting for me. Her white/gray hair all wrapped up in a small bun on the top of her head. I remember climbing up on her lap at a table in the center of the kitchen to eat my cookies........... I don't remember ever seeing David Curtis there, but I remember feeling at ease there. There was a small timber that ran along the gravel road by the house, we used to go mushroom hunting there.

    Notes:

    We all refer to David Todd as David, However in my search and contacts with people in the Southpoint, Ohio area, he went by the name "TODD"

    The Ironton Register recorded David and Arzelia's wedding on Jan 18, 1866 (However it is recorded as David P. Brubaker and Arzelia Salome Clark)

    David served in the 188th Ohio Volunteer Infantry during the war of 1867 until it's conclusion under Captain Sumpter. {taken from "1882 Hardiest Atlas page H-27"}

    Davids Civil War Papers show him as Private of Company I - 188th Reg Ohio Infantry as of Feb 15, 1865, age 21, height 5 foot 8 inches complexion light, eyes blue, hair brown.

    David is listed in the 1900 Lawrence County Census, Perry Township page 136-136B (Sheridan). He is listed as being 57 years old

    David died at the age of 75 years 4 months and 6 days. His listed occupation is as a Farmer. At this time he is still listed as married {so Arzelia is still with him}. His cause of death is listed as -----Angina Pectoris with contributing factors of Mitral Insufficiency ------signed by Gno. W. King November 7th 1917 South Point Ohio. He was buried in the Brubaker Cemetery Ironton Ohio November 7, 1917 {taken from Certificate of death from Bureau of Vital Statistics.}

    Came across a Contract and Lease made between Daniel Brubaker and his son David T. Brubaker in the possession of Helen and Everette Leroy Brubaker.. This lease is signed by Daniel Brubaker, David T. Brubaker, and Salome A. Brubaker. It pertains with the leasing of land on the Ohio river, the upkeep of the mansion which stands there, allowing for Daniel to live on three acres of this land, the well being, and care of David Todd's father Daniel, and the 1/4 return to Daniel Brubaker on all the crops which come from this land, and also last but not least the payment of $700.00 to Julia Elkins, David T's sister over the course of 3 years following Daniels death, as part of her inheritance from the Estate. This contract was to have been binding for the entire natural life of Daniel Brubaker, so he knew that he could be cared for the rest of his life in the way in which he had grown accustom to. The date for this binding contract was June 11, 1866, two years before the death of his father.
    On the top of this contract their is a note which reads: For Value Received I hereby release all my claim in and under this Instrument and the estate herein described. Dated 1871 Ironton, Ohio. With Daniels death in 1868, I am wondering if this statement was written by Julia Ann Brubaker Elkin upon payment of the $700.00. There is no signature following the statement, but Julia is the only one of the children mentioned in the lease as to having any claim to the estate....

    Newspaper obituary read:

    Notes:

    Franklin Pettibone - farmer - born May 11, 1829 in New York State, probably in Genessee County, Gainesville Township. Believed to be of Holland Dutch English French background. He was on of eight children of Loren (Laurin) Pettibone. When a young man he moved with his parents from the State of New York to Illinois. He is said to have been 1/2 owner and operator of Henkle's saw mill at Hinkletown in 1874.

    On June 3, 1850, in Illinois, he was married to Armella Carter, of English background, born in 1834 in New York State. Three of their children ( Benjamin, Mary and David) were born in Illinois before they moved to Iowa in about 1856. They settled on a farm 6 miles northeast of the present town of North English, in Filmore Township Iowa County, Iowa. Where 4 of their children were born ( Ellen, Byron, Oscar and Geneva). And where Franklin lived out his life. Both Armella and Franklin are buried in Yankee Point Cemetery, northeast of North English.

    On Sept 20, 1885, Franklin married Ellen R. (Warner) Pettibone, born 1854, widow of his son Benjamin, who had taken his own life. Franklin and Ellen had one daughter, both Ellen and the child died at childbirth on January 20, 1886.

    Oct 2, 1885 article from the paper reads: Frank Pettibone, a widower and an old settler in Iowa. A pioneer living at Yankee Point, in Fillmore township. Has for some years lived a lonely life. Desirous of obeying the divine injunction remember the widow and orphan in their affliction. treasured up in his heart that one Ella Pettibone his sons widow needed his fatherly care. Took the matter prayerfully to heart and came to the conclusion that the law of God should be obeyed through the law of the land be broken. took her to Missouri and married her. brought her home and is going to fulfill the Scripture.

    Feb 29, 1888, he was married to Phoebe A.H. Carter (her name by a previous marriage) born Dec. 1843 in Indiana. The marriage was an unhappy one. They had no children.

    Franklin died April 12, 1910, suicide by Hanging in the barn at his home in Filmore Township, Iowa County, Iowa. It was assumed he committed suicide because of an unbearable marital situation, although there was some suspicion in the community and among his family that he was murdered. He was buried in the Yankee Point Cemetery, near his farm home. (At the time of his death, only one sibling was living, his sister Mrs. Sarah (Pettibone) Hickett of Nodaway, Missouri.)

    --------------------------
    Received from Carolyne Scott
    Other wives: Ellen R. Warner Pettibone and Phoebe AH Carter. He was a farmer. Franklin died by suicide by hanging in the barn at his home 6 miles northeast of North English, Iowa. It was assumed he committed suicide because of an unbearable marital situation, although there was some suspicion that he was murdered. When Franklin was a young man, he moved with his parents from the State of New York to Illinois and after a few years there on to Iowa. Later he located on the farm where he died. His first wife Armilla died in 1884, in 1885 he married Ellen (a daughter-in-law of his deceased son, Benjamin) and she died at childbirth in 1886, then in 1888 he married Phoebe. The last marriage was an unhappy one and they had no children. On Franklin's tombstone it says 80 years 11 months 1 day. On an adjacent side of this same monument is the name of Armilla Pettibone that says 50 years 10 months 1 day. The Yankee Point Cemetery is north and east of North English on a high point of ground with trees that mark the cemetery from quiet some distance. it is small - and that may be the reason so many people had no idea there was a cemetery there but did know abut Yankee Point. It looks cared for and has a gate and is completely fenced.

    From Jackie McDermott: 1870 Iowa County Census: Franklin age 40 New York, Armilla 37 New York, Benjamin 19 Illinois, Mary 17 Illinois, David Illinois, Ellen 13 Iowa, Byron 10 Iowa, Oscar 7 Iowa, Genevia 1 Iowa. 1880 Iowa Census Franklin 51, Armilla 47, Byron 20, Oscar 18, Ginerva 10 and also 1885 for Byron widow Ellen (later the 2nd Mrs. Franklin Pettibone) who was at Frank Warner's home Warner 22 Iowa, Aletta Warner 22 Pennsylvania, Jasper Warner 1 Iowa Ellen Pettibone 30, Pettibone 8 Iowa. Edith was also listed in 1895 at Frank Warners home as 18 years. She must have gone back to live with them after her mother died giving firth to F... Also another thought while I was looking at your pictures. That one says Ottawa, I think that might be where they might have lived in Illinois possible because there were lots of Carters that lived there and never left and the ones in Iowa all stayed close to the years.

    Franklin married Armelie Ann Carter 3 Jun 1850, Illinois. Armelie (daughter of Benjamin Carter and Anna Mariah Braymer) was born 28 Mar 1833, Wayne County, New York; died 29 Jan 1884, Iowa; was buried Yankee Point Cemetery, North English, Iowa. [Group Sheet]

    From the North English Record, 1978, by Carl Hogendorn: "Next year,--1979--will bring the 125th birthday of the town of North English. And now is the time for committees to start doing their work--if they want to really celebrate this landmark. And, I think Carter, Iowa, should celebrate its 100th anniversary next year. You say you never heard of Carter, Iowa! Well, Carter, Iowa, was a flourishing little town northeast of North English, or one mile south of the Yankee Point School (the corner where the Don R. Coffmans now live). Chester Ballard now owns the land on which the town of Carter was located. Carter boasted a number of dwellings, a grist mill owned by Godfrey Knipfer, a general store owned by John Ryan, and a blacksmith shop operated by Ed Wilson. Carter was granted a post office in the 1870's; the post office being located in the general store. The grist mill was located on the English River, and was a big thing back in those days as everyone - farmers and town folk alike -- had to get their wheat ground at the mill for flour. Thru the busy season the mill operated day and night and only shut down to sharpen the burrs. There were two stone burrs. One was used for wheat only, the other for corn, buckwheat and oats. Each burr consisted of two circular stones about seven feet across; the bottom stone was set on the floor permanently. The top stone was about 18 inches thick, was set on top of the lower stone and could be raised or lowered. The top stone had a hole through the center about six inches in diameter, and the grain ran through this and was ground between the burrs. The top stone revolved at great speed. I believe Milo West still possesses one of these original stones on his farm in the Yankee Point area. Carter was quite a community center and people from the surrounding area went there to trade and loaf. They had shooting matches, horseshoe pitching, croquet, ice cream socials, etc. Carter began to decay when three things happened: 1. The Milwaukee Railroad went thru. 2. The chintz bugs wiped out the wheat crops and 3. Merchants began to buys sacks and barrels of flour from Kansas and had it shipped in. The general store then moved to Parnell and the blacksmith shop to North English. The Carter postmaster moved to North English and became North English postmaster, when the post office was located where Bob and Freda Davisson now live (the old Ross Mahannah home). The Carters who founded the town of Carter were ancestors of Art Carter and Gladys Irmscher. They were David, Edwin, Jake, Oscar, and William Carter. Other Carter residents of that early day were Samuel, Jonathan and William Claypool; Daniel Welch, Frank Pettibone, Frank Farlow, Patrick Ryan, the Stover family , Bill Whitmore and Austin Butler. So maybe Carter, Iowa, could have a Centennial celebration next year-- and serve sweet corn and watermelon, pitch horseshoes--and even have a parade, starting at the Yankee Point corner and going to the old site of Carter. If all the descendants of the original inhabitants of Carter returned for the event it would make quite a crowd. And, maybe we could even get President Jimmy Carter to come and be in the parade and help good ol' Carter celebrate its Centennial year.
