Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Yakima, WA. I've been pursuing family history seriously for almost 30 years -- almost as long as I've been married to my wonderful husband. He is not so much into genealogy, but is a good sport about my "addiction", even to the point of helping me look for relatives in cemeteries when we travel. I love meeting cousins, too.

Main family names: Boone, Mayfield, Short, Tate, Savage, Hughes, Graham, Slater.

RE: Andrew Jackson Savage
I will have to try to remember evidence for Rhoda's maiden name. One support is the 1860 Census--James and Rhoda living with a Sharpe family, evidently thought to be her parents. I am sure there is more proof than that through. Here is how the 1860 Census entry is indexed. Hope this below does not come out all jumbled as I did and copy and paste from the Census record on Ancestry.

Rodah Savage
Age 28
Birth Year abt 1832
Gender Female
Birth Place Missouri
Home in 1860 War Eagle and Walnut, Benton, Arkansas
Post Office Two Mills
Family Number 1017
Household Members
Name Age
Richard Sharp 53
Elizabeth Sharp 48
Daniel Sharp 17
Selvine Sharp 11
John Sharp 23
James Savage 29
Rodah Savage 28
Elizabeth Savage 10
Mary Savage 9
Cinthy Savage 6
William Savage 4

RE: Andrew Jackson Savage
Take your time. I know you want to be comfortable with the facts as would I. I want you to be able to actually see the Bible record so I have added it to the memorial. It first lists the 4 children, then below their names and birthdates, are listed Andy with his birthdate, and also his wife, listed as Mary C. Savage with her birth and also her early death date in 1889. It is written in dip pen and I think that the fact that it refers to 2 of the sons as Willie and Jimmie, that the record must have been recorded while they were still young, so maybe before 1900. Who knows.

Here is the info on the children. Take your time. There is a lot of info to sort through. I do think my James Andrew Savage and your Andrew Jackson Savage must be the same person as they both have the identical date of birth, mine from a Bible record and yours from his death certificate.

Children of Andy Savage and first wife Mary Caroline Ford
(as written in Bible record)

Eldridge L. Savage born October 2, 1882,
Jimmie C. Savage born November 27, 1884
Willie L. Savage born 12 November 1886
Corda V. or W. Savage born August 5, 1888

Run down of census on Andy in case it helps.

1860---not listed with family as enumeration date was June 1, 1860.
War Eagle and Walnut, Benton, Arkansas
1870---Andrew Savage
Grayson, Texas
1880---A. Savage,
Center, Greene, Missouri
1900---James H. Savage (should have been transcribed A)
Shoal Creek, Barry, Missouri
1910---James A. Savage
Liberty, Barry, Missouri
1920---J. A. Savage
Liberty, Barry, Missouri
1930---J. Andrew Savage
Liberty, Barry, Missouri
Enjoy! and thanks for your help.

Christian Brant
Thanks for making me take a second look at this family, I found a wealth of info. He was born in France., according to his Civil War Records & the Old Soldier Home records...He died in the Old Soldiers Home in Leavenworth Co KS on Oct 13 1889. Ann Jane Rank & Christian Brant were divorced before the 1880 census and he married Mary Janes 1884 in Green Co MO, and both of his widows fought for his Civil War Pension! You can find out so much more complete info on the internet now. As hard as I try to put the most correct info on my memorials, sometimes I am a little over zealous and post before I am 100% sure...I really appreciate your inquiry. I do not rely on what is posted on, but census records, marriage records, civil war records etc... again, THANK YOU.

Thanks. This family's death certificates all say Warsaw for burial, I don't know if they were moved or what, it can be frustrating as you know, thanks again

RE: Jeremiah
You're welcome. If you find out this is not the right Jerry Dishman, and get more info, let me know and I will try again, though it may take a little while...that is a drive for me.

Thank you for the obit and edits you have sent which have helped get this family linked. A son, Jesse Banyon Shaver reported died in Orange CA in 1914, but I haven't found a death record. I believe you live in CA, so hopefully you know of some shortcuts for searching records there. As for Letha and Benj "Frank" there is a mystery as both of their obits mention five children when they have six appearing in their home in census, and shown as sons/dau in 1900 census. There seems to always be a loose thread...

He was originally buried in Balliette Cemetery, The Balliette Cemetery was very close to the actual Dam... Kaysinger Dam Project, later named the Truman Dam, the entire Cemetery was moved.
