MS#027: Hosey's father and mother born in NC.

 

MS#029, TN, IGI, Cardwell, says Hosea born 1814.

 

MS#108: "The Methodist Episcopal Church South formed about 1834-35 at the home of Lodowic Brodie in Fayetteville. Membership at that time included Mr. & Mrs. Hosea Cardwell. That helps to determine the time of their move from TN to AR. The family of Richard W. Cardwell perhaps migrated with them ca 1834. In the same story in "One Hundred Years of Fayetteville" by Campbell, Richard W. Cardwell is listed as one of the early ministers of Washington Circuit (this was Fayetteville) prior to 1841."  pg 48: from Fayetteville Democrat, June 10 1887; "Uncle Hosea Cardwell, one of our oldest and best-known citizens, died Friday morning at the residence of C.M. Oliver in this city. He had been suffering with carbuncle for several weeks, which proved to be too much for his constitution, strong as it was for one of his age. He was truly an "old landmark" and his passing away leaves one less of the very few surviving pioneers of Washington County. He was 76 years old and leaves a wife, several children and a host of friends." (C.M. Oliver is Hosea's son-in-law, husband of Ella...LHN)

============================================

The following account is give by Charles "Larry" Gordon

 

Troy Gordon lived in Washington County, Arkansas, in what is now known as the "Troy Gordon House," which is on the Historical Register.

 

1840 CENSUS, WASHINGTON COUNTY, ARKANSAS

 

Troy W. GORDON

1 male 16-19

2 males 20-29   (i.e., Troy, 28, plus one other male)

1 female 30-39  (i.e., probably Troy's sister, Rebecca, 30)

1 female 50-59

 

In 1843, Troy Gordon petitioned the court asking it to appoint a guardian for Robert Anderson.  In January 1844, Mathew Hubbard (neighbor of Robert Anderson) was named as guardian and Troy Gordon named as master of "said minor."  Apparently, both the mother and father of Robert Anderson died months apart in 1842.  The 1860 census has Robert Anderson, age 22, living in Fayetteville City with James and Jane Churchwell (from TN & AL).

 

1850 CENSUS, PRAIRIE TOWNSHIP, WASHINGTON COUNTY, ARKANSAS

 

Troy W. GORDON, 37, $1000, TN

Rebecca Gordon, 40, TN  (Troy's sister)

Robert Anderson, 12, AR

(Robert was the son of James Anderson, 1795-1842, apparently a friend, or possibly a relative.  Robert later married Troy's niece, Cornelia Skelton.)

 

1860 CENSUS, COLVILLE TOWNSHIP, BENTON COUNTY, ARKANSAS

 

Troy GORDON, 48, Farmer, $600/$400, TN

Rebecca Gordon, 51, TN

Mary Gordon, 7, AR  (Don't know who she is.)

 

1870 CENSUS, OSAGE TOWNSHIP, BENTON COUNTY, ARKANSAS

 

GORDON, Troy, 58, Farmer, $400/$850, TN

Gordon, Rebecca, 61, TN

 

 

Also, for what it’s worth, here is what I am carrying on James Gordon:

 

 

James Gordon is probably related to Robert Gordon (1773-1854) of McMinnville, Tennessee.

 

Supposedly born in Maryland, James Gordon lived in Madison County, Kentucky, before moving to Roane County, Tennessee, and then to Warren County, Tennessee, where he lived next to Robert Gordon.  There is some family tradition that he was the brother of Mary "Polly" Gordon (born about 1775), who married Samuel Black in 1795 and John Gordon before 1815.

 

James is listed on an 1812 Warren County, Tennessee, tax list complied by Samuel Colville.  Also listed are John Gorden, Robert Gorden, and John Gorden, Jr.  To be on the tax list, James must have been at least 16 years old, so he was born before 1796.  He is thought to have been born in about 1784 and to have died in 1820.  A 1784 date of birth would be consistent with the reported date of birth of his wife Elizabeth Stockstill in 1788.

 

It is possible that Robert and/or John Jr. were his brothers.  John (Sr.) may have been his father, or an uncle, or his brother.  The relationships are unknown, but there does appear to be a close relationship among these four men.

 

James was in the military for a time.  One of his descendants has a copy of a pension application and some kind of discharge records for him.  In these records, he indicated being born in Maryland, but did not give a city or county.  Relatives of his only son, Troy Gordon, eventually migrated to Benton County, Arkansas.  Family tradition of that line holds that James was the brother of Mary "Polly" Gordon, who married Samuel Black in Madison County, Kentucky, on January 19, 1796.

 

James Gordon is also mentioned in a War of 1812 pension application filed by the wife of one of his friends.  This woman, Nancy Ann HULL, age 75, filed a pension application in July 1861 for the service of her late husband Richard HULL, whom she married on March 24, 1807, and who died on December 31, 1838.  She states that he was a volunteer in a company of Rangers commanded by Captain William Russel and William Chisum in the regiment commanded by Colonel Black in the War with Great Britain.  She states that he entered the service at McMinnville in 1814, served for 9 months, and was discharged at Huntsville [Tennessee?] in 1815.  She states that the following were some of her husband's fellow soldiers:  John STOCKSTILL, William STARK, Thomas STARK, Jeremiah NEWBY, Jesse HARRIS, William HARRIS, and JAMES GORDON.

 

James GORDAN (sic) is listed on a Warren County jail petition that was dated around 1820 and can be found in the Tennessee State Library and Archives.  James GOODEN (sic) is listed in the 1820 Warren County Census.

 

1820 CENSUS, WARREN COUNTY, TENNESSEE

James GOODEN,  10001 - 32221

1 male under 10

1 male 26-44

3 females under 10

2 females 10-15

2 females 16-25
