William (Bill) Estes was a private in Company F. 26th Regiment , NorthCarolina
Vol. Infantry. Joseph's Father Richard (Dicky) Estes , at the age of 68was a
member of the Caldwell Co. Home Guard CSA. When we (Jesse R. Estes)researched
this we found that the Estes negros were occasionally armed and were good
members of the Home Guard CSA. After the war was over and Reconstructionwas
the law, life became very hard for the mountain people. Many of thefamilies
started west. Dicy Caroline Estes died 25 Dec 1867, just two and a halfmonths

family and Elizabeth mary Morgan would move to Kansas. The baby Shermanwas
left with his grandmother, Mary (Polly) Estes, and brought on to Kansaswhen he
was older. They bought railroad land close to the litte community ofBriggs,
locatewd on McDowell Creek, Jeff Davis Co., KS. Joseph Puett Estes and
Elizabeth Mary Morgan were married 31 January 1870 at the davis Co. CourtHouse
in Junction City, Kansas. Two of the Estes families freed slaves and alsocame
to Kansas with Joseph Puett. One young girl who had been a slave,married a
black soldier from Ft Riley and moved to New York. The other "Lila" livedwith
the Estes family until she died. The Township would not allow her to beburyed
in the cemetry so she is buryed outside the cemetry fence in MaxwellRamsour's
yard. Joseph P. is reported to have said, "If Brigg's Cemetry is too good
tohave a Christian Negro Woman buryed there, it is too good foe me.Joseph and
Elizabeth were known as "Pappy Joe" and "Mamm" Estes. They are buryed in a

798. Hugh Crumbliss

May 2004

Roy,
Since I was gone did not have time to reply more before. Note on the two deeds in Laurens Co., SC involving Elisha Estes that he purchased the land for 32 pounds from Samuel Neighbours, and 7 years later sold the land back to Samuel Neighbours. This is unusual to me. It almost says to me some type of Relationship.

I do not know if I sent the Lauren Co., SC deeds for Hugh Crumless to you.

Book D p 331. 2 Jan 1793-11 Feb 1793. James Finney to Hugh Crumlefs for 30 pounds stg. a negro named Peter about 40. Wit: James Rodgers, John Martin, Jeremiah Ward. George Anderson JP.

Book E p 116. 17 Aug 1792-17 Feb 1794. John Smith & W. Susannah to William Ball Senr for 30 pounds Stg. 25A on Cain Crl, gr to Alexr Hamilton by Lders Patent 1768. Wit: Hugh Crumblefs, Jono Smith Senr, Angus Campbell JP.

Book F p 79. 27 Aug 1795-25 Feb 1796. Hugh Crumblefs of Greenville Co to Jos Bonner for 10 Sh stg one third part of a tr on Cane Cr. surv 1790 by Jon Hunter. Wit: Alexr Beale, Warwick Bristow. A Campbell JP

Book F p 89. 18 Feb 1796-18Feb 1796. Hugh Crumblefs to John Sample & Peter Smith for 16 pounds, 82A on Cane Cr part of 249A gr 1791 b. on Jonathan Pucket, Joseph Hollingsworth, Wm Wheeler, Parson. Wit: John Cole, John Estes. John Cochran, DC.

I still think that Hugh Crumbless is the one who married a dau of Elisha Estes, and not Hugh's father. It is odd to me that if she married the father then why did she never apply for Rev. Pension. Note above and previous Greeneville Co., SC deeds it is Hugh always associated with names of husbands of daus of Elisha Estes.

400. Jane Eastes

In a letter dated 28 March 1998, from Bruce Lee, 4886 Twain Ave, SanDiego, CA 92120-4223, is stated the following:

"The following is copied from a letter to Marie & Jim Lange by CathieConner Jack on January 1956. She was Grandmother Mary Avaline ConnerLee's only sister." (Bruce Lee)

" I will write you what little I know of the family history, All I knowhas been handed down by word of mouth - no historical books."

"Francis Harvey married Obadiah Eastes and I have the names of eight ofthem. (children) Jane Eastes was the oldest one. They were all born inSouth Carolina but I don't know which part of the State.
When some of the children were small the Harvey and Eastes Families movedto what is now Franklin Co., Indiana. This must have been about 1797 as Ihave heard my grandmother say she was about four years old. She told methat in one place they went through they thought the Indians werehostile. One child was beginning to talk and kept wanting to say, "Hop UpJoe" and as they wanted to be as quit as possible she had to put her handover his mouth to keep him still."

"Time went on., William Harvey became a man and Jane Eastes became ayoung lady. , so they married. She was his Niece. But who can censure orcriticize when we think of the hard ships and privations our ancestorswent through to develop a Country where we might live. My Mother Evaline,was the youngest child of this marriage. She was born near BloomingGrove Indiana January 3, 1836 and died at my home near Pond Creek,Oklahoma March 14, 1917 and buried beside my Father John Conner nearKiawa, Kansas. My Grandmother Jane Eastes was born in South Carolina June6, 1793 and died near Cumberland, Indiana January 24, 1888. She is buriedin the Eastes Cemetery near Mt Comfort, Indiana. My Grandfather WilliamHarvey was born in South Carolina and died March 7 1860 near BloomingGrove, Indiana and buried north of Fairfield, Indiana"

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< End of Quote >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The source for the information & dates for Jane Eastes and WilliamHarvey were taken from a Family Group Sheet compiled by Dr John WeslyEastes.

The following is Jane's obituary as given by Elder R.W. Thompson:

" Died 24 Janaury 1888, Mrs Jane Harvey aged 94 years, 7 months and 18days.
Mrs Harvey was born in the State of South Carolina on 6 June 1793 and inearly
life she moved with her parents - - Obediah and Fancis Eastes, to the then
wilderness of Kentucky. In the year 1804, in the company of her parents,she
moved to Franklin County, Indiana , settling on the east fork of the White
Water River, a little above Brookville. She was married to William Harveyin
the year 1815, with whom she lived until his death, which occurred in1862.
Eight children were the results of this happy union, four sons and four
daughters, all of whom lived to become men and women and to have familiesof
their own; six of them still survive her, two daughters having havingpreceded
her to that bourne from whence no traveler returns. She united with theOld
School, or Primitive Baptist Church, Fairfield, Franklin County, Indiana,July
1825 and was baptized by Elder William Tyner. She moved to Hancock County,
Indiana in the year 1862 and became a member of the Mt Gilead PrimitiveBaptist
Church of this County. For sixty three years she was a member of theChurch of
Christ, lived an exemplary life and was a devoted Christian mother in
Isreal.After ashort illness of but a few days, she quietly passed away.The
writer was called to the house of mourning where he met many friends and
relatives and tryed to comfort them, speaking to them from St John XI-26;
May the Blessed Master give grace to the friends of the deceased,
reconcile them to this and every dispensation of His providence."

He had as other men have,his peculiarities, but was universally esteemed by his neighbors as a manof of strict integrity. He leaves a family in good circumstances. Hisfuneral was largely attended by his immediate friends and associates.

403. Sarah Eastes

The information on the descendants of Sarah Eastes and Thomas Craig was submitted by: Dr. Sharon Kingen, MCordsville, IN who states:

CONCERNING THE MARRIAGE OF THOMAS CRAIG AND MARY SARAH EASTES - I have acopy of the marriage record from Franklin Co., IN. It shows that Tho'sCraigg and Mary Estes were married July 14, 1817 by Tho's Silvey,Minister. The marriage was recorded Dec. 15, 1818 (you might want to notethat in the database of Indiana marriage to 1850 on Ancestry.com, thesame date and place are given. The groom is listed as Thomas Craigg butthe bride is listed as Sarah Eastes. I haven't the vaguest notion whythat transcription doesn't match the original).

MY HUMBLE OPINION - Of the dates, I would say that it is the marriagedate that is accurate, at least as far as the official records areconcerned. I don't have any idea of why it took nearly a year and a halfbefore the marriage was recorded. Furthermore, given the gap between themarriage and the recording of it, there is reason to speculate that the14 July 1817 record was not an accurate recall of the precise date. Someof these old records do contain errors (e.g., Bible records show one dateof marriage but county records show a different one, tombstoneinscriptions are not always accurate and neither are the transcriptionsof them, and death records are often incorrect). It is my opinion thatThomas and Sarah married in 1817 and that their eldest daughter wasEleanor b. in 1818 followed by Lucinda b.
in 1819. When all of the evidence doesn't match up neatly, I try torecord the evidence as it is and, when I remember to do it, comment onthe conflict in my notes. That is how I would approach the problem thatyou have noted. Whether or not you include the marriage record of ThomasCraig and Mary
Sarah Eastes should depend on your policy concerning such conflicts. AllI can say is that the marriage is recorded as 14 Jul 1817 in FranklinCo., IN, but to the best of my knowledge, neither the birthdate ofLucinda nor the birthdate of Eleanor Jane was recorded officially in anydocument by either of these two women. Thus, I would tend to trust themarriage record more than the tombstone (for Lucinda's birth) or thedeath record (for Eleanor Jane's birth).


Could Sarah and Marybe two different persons?

No, I don't think it is possible for these to be two different people.The
will of Frances Eastes names "Sarah Craig Dec.d who was the wife of Thomas
Craig, the said Sarah having died leaving the following heirs to wit Ellen
Snider, Lucinda Whitesides wife of LaReu Whitesides Isalbella wife of
Michael Smith Obediah Craig Permelia wife of Oliver Harvey. Sarah Ann wife
of Wm Adair, Nancy wife of Milton B. Harvey. Diana Craig." This seems to
verify that all of these children were those of Sarah Eastes/Craig. There
is no evidence that I have found in the census records or elsewhere of
Thomas Craig having married anyone else. Nor is there any evidence that
Obediah and Frances had a daughter named Mary but not Sarah.

Comment by Roy Eastes -
In my Book, The Eastes Families of Indiana, the name Sarah was used asthis is the way it appears on
the family group sheet sent to me by Dr. John Wesley Eastes in 1976. Istill record the name as Sarah in these records but bring it to ypourattention that both names have been found. It is possible that Marycould have been a nickname for Sarah.

Also refer to Notes under Eleanor Jane and Lucinda.
