# 65180831 Thomas S Alsop
Could you please add the following bio to Thomas S. Alsop's bio for me? His wife, Mary Herndon Alsop was an aunt a couple of times over to me. Thanks! "If, as Macauley says, the biography of the people of a country is the
history of the country itself, then the history of Howard county and
particularly of Franklin township, in this county, can never be written without
giving the ALSOP family a conspicuous place on its pages. Thomas ALSOP, the
grandfather of the subject of this sketch, was a native of Spottsylvania
county, Virginia, where he was reared and there married Miss Judith MINOR,
after which, in 1804, they emigrated to Kentucky. Of this union, Elliott, the
father of Thomas S., was born. Subsequent to this they moved to Louisville,
Kentucky, where Miss ALSOP died. There Mr. ALSOP married again a lady of his
own name, but no issue came of his second marriage. In 1818, he came with his
family to Old Franklin, in this county, making the whole trip from Louisville
in a keel boat, and here he lived until his death. At this place, he started
the first hotel ever kept in the county, and was the sheriff of the county,
executing during his tern of office, William G. SHORT, the first victim of the
gallows by sentence of court after the admission of Missouri into the Union.
He died in 1828, the same year the site of the old town was washed away by the
river. Elliott, the father of Thomas S., was born in Scott county, Kentucky,
May 12th, 1804. He was brought up to the plasterer's and bricklayer's trades
and worked at these some time after he reached manhood. By industry and
economy he accumulated enough to engage in the mercantile business, which he
did in 1833 in the town of New Franklin, and in this he continued until the day
of his death, January 12th, 1872, a period of over forty years, thus
establishing and building up the large business, since so well and successfully
conducted by his sons. He took an active part in building up the town of New
Franklin, and in 1828 or 1829, erected one of the first houses, if not the
first, built in that place. He was widely known as a man of unswerving
integrity and public spirit, and not only rose to wealth and social prominence
himself, but contributed materially to the prosperity of the place in which he
lived and of the surrounding country. On the 6th of December, 1838, he was
united in marriage to Miss Julia A., daughter of Shepherd GUM, an old settler
of the county, and seven children were born of this union, three of whom are
now living: Thomas S., John H. and Charles C. Elliott, who was a leading
farmer of the county, died some years subsequent to his father's demise. He
served for four years in the Confederate army under Generals PEMBERTON and Jos.
E. JOHNSON, and was classed among the bravest of the brave. The other sons
constitute the firm of E. ALSOP's Sons, in New Franklin. Thomas S., the
eldest, was in partnership with his father a number of years prior to his
death, and has been in business where he now lives for over thirty years. Mrs.
ALSOP, the mother, is still living, one of the venerable ladies of the
community, known and esteemed for her many social and motherly virtues. On the
4th of October, 1870, Thomas S. ALSOP was married to Miss Mary A. HERNDON, of
this county, who died, however, February 9th, 1874. She left him two children,
Luta H. and Mary C., the latter now deceased. He was married the second time,
October 10th, 1877, Miss Mary L. STRAINGE, of Pike county, becoming his wife.
They have two children, J. Elliott and Anna B."

Hi Tom, I was working on the Shaler's in the Freeman Cemetery and noted a duplicate on Eliza. She had already been entered in 2007 under 17620418. I wondered if you would mind transferring your information to this memorial? It also has a pic of the grave stone. Thanks so much for your consideration. Karen Lee

Duplicate Browns
Iíve been researching the Brown family, and I have a question about Annie Brown (d. 5/9/1877). She was married to my great grandfather John Henry Brown prior to his marriage to my great grandmother Missouri Brown. My question is that she is listed in two different cemeteries, Ebenezer and Fayette City and I was wondering why. There were several other Browns (I havenít connected them to my family yet) and they were also listed in both cemeteries. I noticed you added the Fayette City ones just last year. Thanks!

RE: Russell Wyatt
I did use the edit tab for the corrections. I'm not sure what you are referring to on Russell Wyatt unless it was to add his bio. I appreciate you updating the information already on his memorial.

John L. in Harvey Cem., Mo.
Hi Tom, finally figured out how to change the Cem. name and location to the right ones. Would you be so kind as to change the Cem. location to Lee-Harvey in Armstrong. All you have to do is go to the edit cemetery and change the name. All else will be fixed. Thanks, Eli
