    This is one of a series of "Clan" books that document the genealogical records of the childrenof James Gentry French (1755-1939), who went by his middle name, Gentry. A "clan" isdefined as all the descendants of a child of Gentry's by one of his three wives: MargretAmanda Burgner, Louisa Jane McCollum, and Sadie Nancy Shively. Gentry's sons Archieand Waldon had no children, so they will not have a clan book. That means the clans areClaude, Sabra, Gilbert, Leonard, Emmett, and Fred (children of Margret); Crawford andPresley (children of Louisa); Beatrice, Virginia, Viola, and Lu Etta (children of Sadie).

    The Claude Clan comprises the descendants of Claude Smith French (1879-1951), Gentryand Margaret's oldest child, and his wife Mary Ethel Dailey (1880-1971), known as "Ethel."Ethel's ancestry is included in this book, while Claude's may be found in the book JamesGentry French and His Three Wives. Gentry's ancestry is included in the book UnknownFrench to Gentry French - Five Generations.

    The children of Claude have Louisa McCollum, Ethel's mother, as both maternal grandmotherand paternal step-grandmother. When Louisa, widow of William Millard Dailey and motherof Ethel Dailey, married Gentry, Ethel and Gentry's son Claude became stepbrother andstepsister. Ethel and Claude must have hit it off well, since they were married two monthsaf te r the i r paren ts 'ma r r i a g e . C l au d ethereupon had Louisaas both stepmother andmother-in-law.

    The Dailey family isresearched by SylviaM a r c o t t e([email protected]),a descendant of W. M.Dailey.

    Ancestors of Mary Ethel Dailey

    Generation No. 1

    1. Mary Ethel Dailey, born 1 Jun 1880 in Lineville, IA; died 16 Feb 1971 in Douglas,NE. She was the daughter of 2. William Millard Dailey and 3. Louisa Jane McCollum.She married (1) Claude Smith French 2 Oct 1898 in M. E. Church, Parker, SD. He was born3 Aug 1879 in Norborne, MO, and died 21 Dec 1951 in Douglas, NE. He was the son ofJames Gentry French and Margret Amanda Burgner.

    Notes for Mary Ethel Dailey:From Ethel's son Dean:

    My memory of meals my mother made is quite dim. I do know that we had homemade bacon, sausage, bread, cake, cookies, and croissants Then too wehad other pork cuts, and all the cuts of beef which were usually roasted in theoven; barbecue grilling was unknown. Milk came from our cows, butter waschurned from the separated cream, flour came from the mill where we took wheatto be milled into flour. At the store, we bought yeast, shortening (likeCrisco), sugar, salt, peanut butter in glass jars, flavorings, etc. In short,because of the very considerable talents of my parents, we were very well fed andalmost self-sustaining. We also bought rolled oats (oatmeal) in a roundcardboard container, cream of wheat in a box, and flour sometimes in 50-poundsacks.

    Breakfast was pancakes with sausage or bacon in season, or cream -of-wheat or oatmeal both of which had to be cooked for several minutes. Great homemade soda biscuits were often on the table. Lunch and supper was not thatvaried - heavy on mashed potatoes and gravy. Always we had delicious homemadebread and butter at every meal. Most of the gravy was 'cream,' i.e., made in alarge cast iron skillet with a tablespoon of bacon drippings into which acouple tablespoons of flour was stirred and browned, then whole milk was added andcooked and simmered until the desired consistency was reached. Delicious.Potatoes came from the cellar where a year's supply from a large potato patchwas stored every early fall. Also, in the cellar we had turnips, carrots,beets, and all kinds of home canned vegetables and meats. For snacks we hadpeanut butter and home made jelly sandwiches; our school lunches were commonlypeanut butter sandwiches, with a couple cookies or a piece of cake, andsometimes an apple, orange, or banana. In sum, our menus were simple and mostly of homemade ingredients; there were no pre-packaged or instant anythingavailable. All bakery items were made from scratch - sift the flour, mix in the yeastand shortening, and salt, knead the dough for 10 or 15 minutes, roll thedough out on a board, shape it into loaves or cake or cookie mode, let it 'risefor half hour or so, place it in the appropriate pan, stick it in the oven ofthe wood-burning kitchen stove and bake it until 'golden' brown. In the

  • 45

    summer time, we often had fresh grapes, peaches, plums, apples and pears from thegarden as well as watermelon and muskmelon. For special treats, we madehomemade ice cream with a hand-cranked freezer (using ice delivered to the kitchenicebox once or twice a week). In winter we often had home grown popcorn aftersupper as we played some kind of card games. Our entertainment was very basicas there was no TV, and radio was by crystal set (no electricity) which was ofpoor and intermittent reception. In the 30's, radios powered by lead-acidbatteries (like heavy car batteries) were available and provided 2 or 3 hours ofbetter but not good reception of programs of limited cultural content beforethe batteries were exhausted. Otherwise, our time was spent growing, gathering,and reaping and storing the fundamental necessities; and preparing thefoodstuffs for the table.

    Prepare the meals by adding a pinch of this, or a spoonful of that, stirring and mixing andcooking or baking by instinct and experience. There were no exotic dishes.

    Notes for Claude Smith French:Claude was a jack-of-all-trades. More than a farmer, he was a blacksmith, carpenter, butcher,cobbler, mechanic, and could do almost anything one might want to do around a farm, e.g.,shoe horses.

    According to his obituary, he was a resident of the Douglas, NE area for 40 years, and was amember of the Christian Church.

    6. Enos Francis McCollum9, born 22 Sep 1834 in Randolph Co., NC10; died 16 Aug1926 in Haddam, Brandford Township, Washington Co., KS11. He was the son of 12.William McCollum and 13. Sarah Spoon. He married 7. Anna Vinzant 6 Mar 1859 inHenricks Co., Indiana.

    7. Anna Vinzant12, born Abt. 1834 in Indiana13; died 23 Nov 1880 in Lineville, WayneCo., IA. She was the daughter of 14. William Vinzant and 15. Louisa King.

    Notes for Enos Francis McCollum:Enos's birthplace is shown as "Nashville, Indiana" on his death certificate, which seemsunlikely. Date of death on his headstone is incorrect.

    During the Civil War, Enos was enrolled as a private on 12 August 1862, in Company H of the99th Regiment of Indiana Volunteers. He was honorably discharged at Indianapolis on 5 June1865. (Declaration for an Original Disability Pension, 1890). He served as a musician.

    Enos's line is tracked by Patricia McCrae, [email protected], who has copies of hisvoluminous pension-application file. She believes that Elizabeth Hines and ElizabethGoodwin were the same person, Elizabeth Hines having had a previous husband namedGoodwin.

    Notes for Anna Vinzant:Enos's wife is listed as "Anna" in the 1880 census, which shows that her parents were born inOhio. Going by the census, she was about 46 when she died (from childbirth) in 1880, but PatiMcCrae shows her age as 42 at time of death, presumably based on tombstone information.She is buried together with daughter Mary, who died when only 10 days old. A twin brother,unnamed, was probably stillborn.

    From Vernon Vinzant, 913 Stafford Casper, WY 82609-3204:

    It appears that all of Anna's older siblings were born in Ohio. Primary reason for identifyingAnna as born in Indiana is the 1850 census, but other data supports a move to Indiana about1832.

    From Donna Hunter, Anna's great granddaughter:

    It was told to the family by an older relative of Grandma Renshaw's [Cinderella McCollum]that her mother [Anna] was Indian, and that grandma's parents were married in a Catholic

  • 49

    church at Watson. Her [Anna] Indian name was Rosella Whitehorse. The church burned--records unknown. Also my dad remembered Uncle Jim [Anna's son James] and a sister. Dadsaid Jim looked like an Indian Scout. When I was a young girl I remember pictures atgrandma's. She said they were relatives, and they were Indian! Don't know more. She was noteager to talk about them.

    [Now we have another mystery, as Cinderella's mother is named Mary Raven in her obituary. -mlf]

    Children of Enos McCollum and Anna Vinzant are:i. Sarah E. McCollum14, born 28 Dec 1859 in Hendricks Co., IN14; died Aft. 1926; met (1)

    James William Vinzant; born 7 Feb 1853; married (2) Unknown Moore.

    Marriage Notes for Sarah McCollum and James Vinzant:Patricia McCrae says that Sarah and James may not have been married, as they were firstcousins.

    Newspaper article: "Gun Used With Deadly Effect - Shooting in Room at St. Regis HouseResults in Death of H.B. McCollum" H.B. McCollum is dead, J.L. Wenger is sufferingfrom serious injuries on the head, and Ed. I. Slagle is held by the criminal authorities toanswer a charge of murdering the former and assaulting the latter. The affray took place onSaturday night in the St. Regis rooming house on shoshone Street South. Statements as tocauses which led to the shooting are conflicting, as made by Slagel, Wenger, and Jensen.Former alleges that an attempt was made by McCollum, Wenger and Jensen, and that heshot to protect his property and possibly his own life. Wenger, who resides with his wife at644 Elm Street, says the assault was entirely unprovoked, and had all the aspects of adeliberate attempt to hold up the three men. In this statement, Jensen gives some support.Wenger was beaten about the head with a revolver, used in the shooting of McCollum.Wenger states he grappled with Slagle after McCollum had been shot down, in an effort tosave himself from a similar fate. All the men implicated admit that they had arranged toplay a game of poker in a St Regis house room engaged by Wenger. The latter, McCollumand Jensen reached the room ahead of Slagle, Wenger and Jensen say. A fire was started ina small stove and other preparations were making for the game when, according to Wenger,Slagle appeared at the door. McCollum, it is said, met Slagle at the door and invited him in,but the latter, after taking note of the number of the room, passed down the hall to alavatory. In a few minutes, according to an account detailed today by Wenger, Slagle

  • 50

    returned and as he entered the room drew a revolver from his shirt and ordered the men toput up their hands. Wenger, at the time the order was issued was stooped over picking uppoker chips which he had spilled. McCollum is related to have imemdiately complied withthe order and then was shot. The missle struck immediately under and to one side of theheart, ranging upward in passage through the body until it passed out of the back just belowthe shoulder blade. Jensen, it is said, crawled under a bed, while Wenger attacked Slagle,seizing the revolver to save his own life. In the struggle that ensued Slagle got uncontrolledpossession of the weapon and smashed his victim on the head a number of times, inflicting anumber of bad scalp gashes. While the fight was on Wenger attracted attention of personson the street and in the house by shouting for help. Jensen came to his aid and the two menmanaged to push the fighting Slagle from the room, down the hall to the head of the stairs,where Policeman Frank Austin took Slagle in custody. Wenger, bleeding profusely from hismany hurts, hastened to Dr. Clouchek's office where the injuries were treated. He was laterarrested by Deputy Sheriff H.C. Van Ausdein at his home on Elm Street. Jensen wasimmediately taken in charge as a witness and is being held for the preliminary examination.Following his arrest, Slagle is said to have advised the sheriff that the three men attackedhim as he entered the room and that he pulled the gun to defend himself. He says he carriedthe weapon in his hip pocket. Slagle is a sheep camp tender, and came here some monthsago from Washington state. Wenger is a concrete finisher by trade, but of late, he admits, hehas not had much employment at anythning. He picked apples and topped beets during thefall, and lately has been employed by Dr. Gilbert Telford as janitor, he says. He has onechild, a boy of nine years. Slagle says he was last employed by Case and Schildman ofFiler. Wenger says he had never played a game of cards with Slagle before, but thisstatement is denied by Slagle. McCollum, the dead man, worked at common labor, wasabout 60 years of age and has a son about 25 years old living in Twin Falls. Slagle is 48years of age and Jensen slightly younger. a raid of the St. Regis roomsthe first of the yearyeilded some undesirable men and women in the dragnet of the sheriff's forces.

    v. Lovey Ann McCollum20, born 15 Sep 1868.

    Notes for Lovey Ann McCollum:Lovey was named after her Aunt Lovey Ann, Enos's sister.

    vi. Enos A. McCollum21, born 15 Jun 1871 in Iowa22; married (1) Ellen Armina ElizabethLamb; born 6 Jan 1878; died Aug 1968; married (2) MaryElla Elizabeth Ekiss Sep 1907;born 26 Jan 1885 in Mercer Co., MO.

    Notes for Enos A. McCollum:Enos deserted his large family 1 September 1906 after the birth of his seventh child, Hiram,taking seven-year-old Myrtle with him. He later remarried (to Mary) and had two daughtersand one son before leaving her too. About that time Myrtle returned to her mother. It isunknown what became of Enos after that.

    Notes for Cinderalla Ann McCollum:Marvin Maxwell French recalls family trips in the car to see "Aunt Cinny" in Iowa. Hismother Ethel and Cinny were very close, which accounts for Cinny's giving the name Ethelto her daughter.

    Services were held Friday, Jan. 16, at 2 p.m. at the Rash Funeral Home with Rev. JimNealeigh officiating. Interment was in the Hamburg Cemetery.

    ["Blanche" must have been the Mrs. R. E. Scoles listed as a survivor in Charles Renshaw'sobituary two years earlier, although it is odd that her last name wasn't included here. -mlf]

    Notes for Charles W Renshaw:Orland Dean French recalls: I remember Charlie and Cinny very well--visited them last inthe early 50s. They were fairly wealthy for that era. They financed my parents' home inDouglas, NE, in the early 40s. I repaid them in small amounts in the 40s and 50s. They werea fun couple, always jolly and joking, very nice people.

    He also wrote: I have discovered more details of my parents' later years in Douglas whichincludes info as to Aunt Cinny's buying their home in Douglas - paying cash - and with noparticular repayment mentioned. That sure bailed my parents out in a time of urgency sincethat was the only house for sale in Douglas and they were being evicted by the youngorphan owner who wanted to live in his house. I knew before that Charlie and Cinny weregreat people, but that deal was the clincher beyond all doubt (for me at least).

    Notes for Peter Dailey II:Peter Dailey served in the Revolutionary War in Captain James Archer's Militia Company ofthe first Battalion in Washington Co., TN

    Some of Peter and Mary's children were born in Washington Co., then Green County, PA.This was not that the family moved, but that the boundaries of the counties were redrawn.

    Notes for Mary Ann Wiley:Mary Wiley's ancestry has been traced back to the beginning of the Christian era. Thisgenealogical record was discovered by Kent French, who does not vouch for its authenticity.A file containing this information is available is included in the collection of UFO Bookscreated from this Family Tree Maker file.

    Co., IA34; married Joseph Dickerson 18 Oct 180734.

    Notes for Sarah Sally Dailey:Sarah Sally and Joseph Dickerson had 11 children. Their first child, Maria, died in Ohio atage 14. Around 1830 the family moved to Tippecanoe County, Indiana. Joseph died there in1832. Sally, daughter Nancy and nine sons settled in Bloomington (now Muscatine), Iowa in1836. My gr grandfather wrote that when they arrived he found but one shack that had beenabandoned there. The first white settlers arrived about 1831. Sally died in Muscatine in1839. Nancy Dickerson Welch wrote in her journals of how she had to care for her ninebrothers after Sally died. Nancy married James Welch of Kentucky in Muscatine on3/12/1840. Her first two children were born in Iowa. The Welches walked the Oregon Trailin 1845 settling in Astoria. They were forced to stay in St. Joseph, Missouri for a year due toIndian uprisings. A third child was born in Missouri. Now picture the scene in 1845. Nancy,age 27, is walking the 2,000 miles to Oregon with two teams of oxen, three children underthree, and her 19 year old brother, Luther Dickerson. They survived the trek and Nancygave birth to her fourth child and first white child born in the Oregon territory Feb 19, 1846.

    13. Sarah Spoon37, born 1 Aug 1810; died Aft. 1860 in North Carolina37. She was thedaughter of 26. Christian Spoon and 27. Nancy Chaplin.

    Notes for William McCollum:William's two youngest children were living with their maternal grandmother in 1850, andwife Sarah was living in a household with a young man, perhaps a boarder, William havingdied in 1846.

    Notes for Sarah Spoon:The 1850 census shows Sarah (McCellum, obvious misspelling) living in a household with 25-year-old M. Pugh, a laborer who could not read or write. At that time her children Enos andLovey were in her parents' household. Perhaps Mr. Pugh was just a boarder. At this time theolder Susannah was married to Josiah Bray and had 3 children.

    The 1860 census shows Sarah living with a young recently married couple, James W. andLaura A. Foster. Since she was not to be found in the 1870 census, she had probably died bythen.

    Children of William McCollum and Sarah Spoon are:i. Susannah McCollum37, born 4 Aug 1828 in Randolph Co., NC; married Josiah T. Bray 28

    Notes for Hiram C. York:A Hiram York in the 1850 census was 39 at the time, married to 25-year-old Mary, with 5children. If this is the Hiram York who married Lovey in 1857, he would have been 46 andshe 17. It is not unlikely that Lovey would have been glad to have some security after beingplaced in her grandparents' home, which she may have disliked (an illiterate grandmother),by her mother. Or maybe her grandparents just palmed her off on Mr. York, to get rid of theresponsibility.

    14. William Vinzant42, born Sep 1800 in Kentucky; died 3 Oct 1878 in Centerville,Appanoose, IA42. He was the son of 28. James Vinzant and 29. Margaret Unknown. Hemarried 15. Louisa King.

    15. Louisa King

    Notes for William Vinzant:On April 15, 1832, William and Louisa purchased 16 acres of farm land fromthe U.S. in Hendricks County, Indiana, SE 1/4 of Section 27, Township 16,Range 1 West. Sold to Thomas H. Bonifielo.

    William and Louisa sold the land purchased on June 9, 1832 on Feb. 15, 1834through his brother, James Jefferson Vinzant, to Thomas Barker for $113.00.

    His daughter, Hannah, was born September 9, 1832, in Ohio and he probablymoved to Indiana about this time. William's next daughter, Anna, was born inIndiana (ca 1834). Even though he had sold his 16 acres, he was in MiddleTownship, Hendricks County, Indiana, in 1840 (census).

    In 1843, William bought 80 acres of farm land from James and Deborah Vinzantin Jackson Township, Parke County, Indiana. Whether he actually moved toParke County is not known.

    Notes for Louisa King:ELIZA, LEWIZA, OR LOUISA?

    For William Vinzant and Eliza King's marriage on March 20, 1820 in Highland County, Ohio,the marriage Records of Highland County, Ohio 1805 to 1880 by David McBride give thewife's name as Eliza. In March 27,1832, William and Lewiza Vinzant sold land in HighlandCounty, Ohio. In the 1850 Indiana census, William's wife is listed as Louisa. Her tombstonegives her name as Louisa. It appears probable that this is only one person; that one is either

  • 55

    her preferred nick name or middle name; and that different spellings arise because theyapparently could not read or write (no known signatures). This is further supported by variouscensus records where the ages for William's wife are consistent (see census informationrecorded for William). Further, in the 1850 Hendricks CountyIndiana, census, an older King family is living next door to William. It may be that this isLouisa's (Eliza's) parents who have also moved here from Ohio. Louisa is an oft-repeatedname in later generations, is the name given on her tombstone, and therefore is the name ofchoice. Another point might resolve Lewiza as the pronouncing of Louisa--in the DawsonCounty Museum in Lexington, Nebraska, in 1995, there was a display for a pioneer family ofFrench-Canadian descent that illustrates pronunciation and spelling of "Louisa" -- it reads inpart: "Daniel Freeman and his wife Louisa(pronounced Lew Eye' Za), the first permanent residents of Dawson County...." This museumalso has displays that relate to Vinzant families of that area.

    John McCollum (b. c. 1781) moved from Randolph County and died in Morgan Co., IN. Iunderstand that there is a will there for him. I have a copy of it, but can't put my hands on itjust now. John died in April of 1868. His son Jonathan went with him to Indiana and he hadseveral additional children who were still rather young in 1850.

    Patricia McCrae shows six children of John and Magaret, of which William was the second.She also writes:

    John was probably his father's only heir, as by 1813 he was shown on the tax list on hisfather's land. John gave his sons his Randolph County property through vairous deeds.Jonathan, who later accompanied him to Morgan Co, IN, was given 428 acres on Mt PleasantCreek, and two slaves: Peggy (21 in1830) and Riley (15). His son William received 273acres on Mt Pleasant Creek and slaves named Phyllis (39 in 1830) andMilly (13). Hisgrandson Orris recieved a girl named Hala, aged 2. In 1847, he sold his last property inRandolph County in company with his son Jonathan and Jonathan's wife Elizabeth (Staley).John was living in Morgan Co, IN, by that time.

    According to the 1850 census, Susannah, Mary and John Jr. would be his children with Polly.Also listed in the census are Margaret, Elizabeth, Wesley and Rachel, all born before hemarried Polly in 1834. In 1850, John gave his age as 69 and Polly's as 49.

    This may be the John McCollum who served in Nixon's NC Militia during the War of 1812.

    Notes for Christian Spoon:The 1850 census shows Enos and Lovey McCollum, his grandchildren, in Christian'shousehold. By 1860, when he was 70, Nancy was no longer in his household, but Pertina, age28 was listed there as a "domestic" (which usually meant wife on these census forms). Theyevidently had a 1-year-old son, Isaac E.

    Later information provided by Kent French is that the IGI shows a marriage for Christian andPeritnea Routh on 20 March 1856. So Christian married a 24 year-old woman at age 68 andproduced a child with her three years later. Her name on the 1860 census form was misspelledas Pertina.

    Notes for Jonathan McCollum:From Larry Cates, [email protected]:

    Jonathan McCollum, was, of course, the son of Duncan McCollum of Sandy Creek, who diedwith a will in 1784. His wife at death was named Esther. To my knowledge, no one knowswhere they came from or who Duncan's parents were, but he was likely a near relation of LeviMcCollum (wife Mary) who sold him the property on Sandy Creek in the mid 1770's.(Guilford Co., NC Dbk 1, p. 417.) Levi had purchased it in 1770 from David and ElizabethJackson.

    There are a number of criminal action cases regarding both Jonathan and Eleanor and mattersof assault with neighbors. For a while, they seemed to be really mixing it up with the peoplearound them. It is interesting that Jonathan and Eleanor only seem to have had one childtogether. At least the 1800 census only shows a single male 10 to 16 in their household.Eleanor MAY be the person buried at McMasters Cemetery near Mt. Pleasant Creek. Thestone is made of soapstone and hard to decipher, but the inscription appears thusly, "----n---

  • 59

    McCollum, 10 Apr 1769--14 Oct 1842 I wonder if the age of John given in Indiana wasaccurate. If so, Eleanor is unlikely to be his mother. If his age agreed more with the 1800census (b. 1784 to 1790), it seems more likely.

    [We have made the very tentative assumption that the tombstone was indeed Eleanor's and thattheir son was born between 1784 and 1790, not in 1781 - MLF]

    Shown on the Randolph County, NC, Tax List of 1779 (single man). Listed in the 1785 taxlist, the 1799 tax list in Randolph Co, NC. It appears he died before 1813 as he is not on thattax list. No probate records were found for him and all his land passed into the hands of aJohn McCollum, probably his son.

    Jonathan's Revolutionary War Pension was disapproved due to "partisan or tory war notprovided for", more than likely because he had only North Carolina service and no Federalservice.
