Montgomery's First Election
January 3, 1820

At this site, in Jonathan Coggswell Farley's store, an election was held to establish Montgomery's first government. The Alabama General Assembly, meeting in the capital at Huntsville, approved an act on December 3, 1819 to combine the communities of New Philadelphia and East Alabama into the new town of Montgomery. Named in the act to conduct and manage the election were Jonathan C. Farley, Walter B. Lucas, Ebenezer D. Washburn and Andrew Dexter.

Elected to the first town council were Nimrod E. Benson, William Graham, Clement Freeney, Ebenezer D. Washburn, John Goldthwaite, Rhodes L. Smith and Daniel Carpenter. They chose Graham as the first intendant (mayor).

Walter B. Lucas proposed that the new town be named for Gen. Richard Montgomery, the Revolutionary War hero.



Jonathan Coggswell Farley
1798-1864


Farley acquired two lots on this site in 1817. Here he build the town's first frame store and first frame two-story building, his house. In Farley's store, an election was held January 3, 1820 to create Montgomery's first governing body. Farley and three others were named in an act of the Alabama General Assembly to conduct and manage this first election.

Farley was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1798. About 1816, he sailed from Portland, Maine to the port of Mobile then proceeded to Ft. Jackson (Toulouse) to establish a trading post. Coming to Montgomery, he opened the town's second store. He served as foreman of the first Grand Jury and, later, moved to a plantation outside town near Cross Keys.

The town's first newspaper, The Montgomery Republican, also occupied his store.

According to Richard Foster's Military Dishcharge papers the following facts were found;

Richard joined military forces in Princeton, Gibson Co, Indiana, signed up with Andrew Jackson Woods in 1860. A.J. Woods was wounded and sent home on a disability. Richard continued service until 1863, when he was seen by a doctor and given a medical discharge. He stated he was born in Richland County, Illinois, that he was age 32 by July of 1863. The reason of his discharge was that he had a fibroid tumor on his neck, which had become the size of a coconut. It caused pain which radiated into his ear, and rendered him unfit for duty. (this tumor is what killed him at a early age)

He served in Company K 24th Infantry Indiana, and was discharged in Carrolton, Louisiana. During his war time service, his children, Thomas, Miles, John, Louisa, were seperated and placed with families who could take them in. In 1860, John is in the household of John T. Gibson of Smallwood, Illinois, Thomas is in the household of Levi Conners of Gibson County, Indiana, Miles is in the household of Dixon Woods, Jasper County, Illinois, and Louisa unknown until 1870. (since Richard expired by 1867, no guardianship filed for Louisa, which rules her out as a possible daughter).

Richard's approximate age also determined by his marriage in 1849, and the fact he purchased land in 1848 of which he had to be age 21 at that time in order to enter a contract. Marriage without parental consent also at age 21.

In 1865 Jasper County state Census, we find in his household the children of Margaret Pierpoint, as well as Margaret Foster. Richard's children continue to reside with Dixon Woods, with the exception of Thomas who does not show up in further census. The next find is the guardianship papers filed by Dixon Woods, for John and Thomas Foster. (assumed Miles has died, Thomas is age 18) on October of 1867, showing that Richard Foster was deceased. Further checking, there is no probate or will or division of property. John and Thomas were awarded $100 each federal bounty. (assuming for Richard's war service) There was no pension awarded or filed by either children or widow.

Keziah (Tucker) Cavener

By Ray Gold

John Spinner was born in 1749 in Amelia County, Virginia, and died October 3, 1825 in Amelia County, Virginia. He married Mary unknown. She was born in 1750 and died in about 1850 in Lincoln County, Tennessee at the age of 100 years. Their only child was Jency Jane Spinner born in about 1778 in Amelia County, Virginia, and died in about 1845 in Lincoln County, Tennessee. She married Benjamin Tucker, in 1796 in Amelia County, Virginia. Their children were; [1] Polly W. Tucker born August 21, 1798, she married John Waters, November 20, 1814 in Amelia County, Virginia. [2] Keziah M. Tucker, born June 21, 1804 in Amelia County, Virginia, and died after 1880. [3] John S. Tucker, born September 13, 1807. [4] Martha A. Tucker, born March 16, 1810. [5] Benjamin Everet Tucker, born April 7, 1815. [6] Eliza Tucker, born July 17, 1818, she married Coleman Wells, January 8, 1842 in Lincoln County, Tennessee.

Benjamin Tucker gave his deposition to the Lincoln County, TN., Court on February 22, 1847, and stated that he married Jane Spinner, and that they were in fact the parents of Keziah M. [Tucker] Cavener and she gave her deposition on the same date and place and she stated that she did in fact married Patrick Cavener, in Amelia County, Virginia, on June 21, 1821. That they came to Lincoln County, Tn. in about 1826 with her husband, Patrick Cavner and three of their children; James, born in 1821, John, born in 1822, and Timothy Cavener, born in 1824, all three children born in Amelia, County, Virginia. Patrick Cavener was born in Ireland, in 1804 and came to America in 1817 on the ship Julia Ann. He died in Marshall County, Tennessee in the early 1830s. Their two youngest children were born in Marshall County, Tennessee. Mary Jane was born in 1827, and Wm. Patrick Cavener was born in 1831. They lived near the New Hope Cemetery, in Marshall County, TN. We have found not record of where he is buried, but he may be buried in the New Hope Cemetery in a unmarked grave.

Three of their children married three of Johnathan Golds children; [1] Timothy Cavener, married Winnie Gold, [2] Mary Jane Cavener married Thomas Gold, [3] and Wm. Patrick Cavener married Rachael Minerva Gold. In 1852 Thomas Gold and Timothy Cavener along with their families came to Christian County, Missouri on the Johnathan Gold Wagon Train, and settled in Green Valley near Boaz. And by 1872 there were 22 double cousins of these Gold and Cavener marriages, in Christian County, Missouri.

Timothy and Winnie had eight children, and owned 320 acres of land laying north and south on the west side of the road at Boaz, Missouri. They made their home toward the south end of their farm. Timothy enlisted in the Union Army when their youngest child [Margaret L. Cavener] was 2 days old, August 3, 1861. Timothy served in the Army until he died August 4, 1864 a prisoner of war. In the hospital at Little Rock Arkansas and was buried there. Most of their children married and lived in Stone County, Missouri and they have many descendants in the area. Winnie is buried in the Molly Wright Cemetery south of Union City. Their children were;[1] Amanda Jane, who married John H. Booty John Estes. [2] Wm. Patrick who married Mary Hurst, and they went to Texas, and raised several children. [3] Martha F. Cavener, married John Calvin Hagewood and lived near Republic.[4] Henry Clay Cavener, married Sarah Rebecca Hagewood, [sister to John Calvin] and lived near Republic. [5] George W. Cavener married Mary Elizabeth Holder, and had seven children; Timothy Elcana, William Andrew, Martha E., Stella Beatrice, James Arthur, Fred, and Francis Susan Cavener. and then she died and George W. married Sarah Jane [Jackson] Points and they had eight children; Rolla, Burl, Cleo, Jewel, Dolin, Lena Belle, Lorene, and Maudie Cavener. and lived about 2-1/2 miles southeast of Union City in Stone County.[6] Mary Elizabeth Cavener married Joseph Bud Hale.[7] Sarah Cathelene married Columbus Lum Garoutte, [8] Margaret L. Cavener married Martin Van Buren Butler.

Soon after the Civil War ended, Uncle Tommie and Mary Jane [Cavener] Gold moved across the county line and settled 2 miles south of Union City in Stone County, and finished raising their family there. Their two youngest children; Joseph Gold and Missouri, Elizabeth Betty Gold, were born there. Their children were; [1] Margaret Jane Gold, [2] James Thomas Gold, [3] Wm. Riley, [4 and 5] Mary & Martha [twins], [6] Silas, [7] Lorenza, [8]Frances, [9] Allen, [10] Joseph, [11] and Missouri, Elizabeth, Betty Gold.

William Patrick, son of Patrick and Keziah Cavener and Rachael Minerva [Gold] Cavener were the parents of Martha, Mary, and Robert Cavener. Their children all born in Christian County. In about 1878 they moved to McDonald County, Missouri and raised their family there. Many descendants are still in that area. Rachael Minerva is buried in the Cummings Cemetery near Tiff City, MO. and Wm. Patrick is buried in the Council House Cemetery in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, about two miles north west of Tiff City, MO.

There are many descendants of both the Gold and Cavener families in several counties in Southwest Missouri and elsewhere. A record of Johnathan Gold or Keziah Cavener would not be complete without some record of the other.

Johnathan Gold and his wife died in the 1860s and buried in the old Gibson cemetery east of the James River Bridge east of Clever in Christian County, MO. No marker has been identified as their graves. Therefore, during the 1990s a memorial stone was put in the White Cemetery in Stone County, for Johnathan and his wife. They are the grand-parents of all the Golds in this area.

The last record we have of Keziah is, she was listed in the 1880 census in the household with her grandson; Henry Clay Cavener living near Republic. Our records shows that other members of the Cavener family, including her son John Charles Cavener, were in the household of Joseph Cavener living in Texas, in 1900. Keziah may have went to Texas and was buried there.

STEPHEN BELL BASFORD (1755-1828)

Born in Anne Arundel Co., MD in 1755, Stephen Bassford spent his early life in this county; however, by 1793 he moved to Frederick County.

During the American Revolution, Stephen served as lieutenant in Capt. Vachel Gaither's company, Col. Elijah Robinson's regiment, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, militia [DAR Lineage Book: Kathryn Young Ellis, #652901 A648, dated 30 Dec 1986]. Specifically, according to Ms. Ellis' approved DAR application, Stephen served first as a 2nd Lieutenant (28 May 1776) -- then as 1st Lieutenant (17 Jun 1776) -- in a militia company belonging to the Severn Battalion in Anne Arundel County. His 1st Lieutenancy was renewed 02 Mar 1778 in the same military unit.

[References: Journal of Correspondence Committee of Safety, MD -- MD Archives, Vol. 11, pp. 450, 395; Vol. 16, p. 145]


In 1782, while residing in Anne Arundel County, Stephen married Suzannah Stewart. All but one of his chiildren -- John Waters Bassford, born in Frederick County, ca 1800 -- were born in Anne Arundel County. The last one born in Anne Arundel County was probably Rachel ca 1798.

Sometime after the War -- probably about 1800, Stephen relocated to Frederick County, Maryland, where he had earlier become a landholder, showing up in that year's census for Frederick County. The following land transactions were copied from the deed books in Frederick Co.:

11 Jun 1793 Property boundaries recognized between Stephen, Wm. Ballanger & Jacob Brandenburgh -- land adjacent to tract referred to as "Henry and Elizabeth Enlarged" -- 211 a. called "Philemon's Surrounded."

07 Aug 1795 Indenture made with Philemon Griffith for land called "Long Measure." Tract granted to Griffith in Feb 1794, measuring 6.2 a.

05 Feb 1801 Indenture made with Martha Howard, Executrix of husband Joseph Howard, to tract totalling 782 a. referred to as "Henry and Elizabeth Enlarged." Francis White had been a contract party to this land with Joseph Howard; both were deceased in 1801, thereby allowing the widow, Martha, to negotiate with Stephen. There is reference to the land being endentured earlier in Anne Arundel County.

It seems that the property may have been close to the boundary with Anne Arundel County.


The Bassford-Clark connection was established through the marriage of three Bassford daughters of Stephen to three sons of Richard Clark: John (1808), Richard (1813), and Levi (1815). These marriages took place in the New Market area of Frederick County, thus establishing Stephen Bassford's home as in that county, where he died in 1814.


Estate papers filed 6 Aug 1828 (Equity Case #912) indicate that Stephen Basford, late of Allegany (?) County, deceased, died intestate leaving considerable real estate in Frederick County, and that Rachel Kinley, Martha Clarke, Mary Clarke, Henrietta Wilson and Nancy Crum were the only children and heirs of Stephen. Nancy Crum had also died intestate leaving children William, Catharine, John, Steven and Susanna Crum, all residing in Frederick County. [13] His estate included a number of slaves and each of his grandchildren was given one -- only his Clark heirs rejected their entitlement since they were strongly anti-slavery.

The account of his estate, dated 9 Mar 1830, lists heirs Rachel Kinley; Mary, wife of John Clark; Martha, wife of Richard Clark; Henrietta, wife of Otho Wilson; and William, John, Stephen, Catherine and Susanna Crum. [18]

CEBURN J. DAVIS was born in what is now Clinton Co., Ky on 29 Dec 1825. He never went to a public school. He and his family lived in log house. In October, 1843 he married Miss Virginia Young. With five children, Parker, George, Haywood, Melvina and Evaline, they left Kentucky on 8th of May 1856, leaving one child Alice, a little over a year old, there (Beths note: Alice died in 1849 at 1 year and 13 days old, which is why they didnt bring her with them. Im not sure why the author didnt state that instead of suggesting that they left her behind).

They went to Knox County, Illinois, reaching there May 29, 1856. They lived there two years, leaving there Aril 9, 1858 for Putnam Co., Missouri, landing there 22 Apr 1858. They settled on the Mark Crabtree place, on the northwest corner of which the Davis Schoolhouse was built, now called Victory. During the first year in Putnam, Ceburn gave one acre of his land for a school house site to belong to the district as long as it was used for that purpose. For this 80 acres and 10 acres timber disconnected, he gave a horse and wagon and a small amount of money, all valued at $200. They lived there till the fall of 1865.

In (illegible), they bought 40 acres where Benton Spaw lived and 40 acres south of the 80 acres on which they lived. In the fall of 1865, they moved to the place where Mr. Spaw lived and for those two forties he gave $300, all in trade. They lived there till 1872, when he bought the place where a man by the name of Jones lived, for $1200. The rest of Ceburn and Virginias children were born here; Sarah, Ben, Arthur, Lizzie and Absalom. Ceburn was still living in 1901.

[goes into a paragraph about the wild game in the area - nothing specific and nothing to do with family history]

Ceburn J. Davis enlisted under Capt. Green Maize in Co. E, 4th Regt, E.M.M. He was in the Battle at Lancaster where a negro non-combatant and a few bush-whackers were killed. Later he was in Capt. George W. Ledfords Company, under Col. W.A. Shelton. They were stationed at Macon County and points along the Missouri River. They guarded towns and railroads, but were in no actual battle.

-----CORINGTON ODELL FORD
First story as shared from Meredith Frances Ford DeBuse, Granddaughter.
Corington Odell Ford was born 15 Aug 179, at Mt Vernon, Jefferson County, Illinois. His parents were Thomas Jefferson Ford and Almeda May Allen, who were married 29 Nov 1877. Grandpa was the eldest of eight children born of this union: William Canby, Ralph, Forrest, Velma, unnamed daughter, Eliza, and Catherine William and Forrest did not survive childhood; and unnamed daughter either was stillborn or didn’t live beyond the day of her birth.
When Grandpa was about six years old, his family moved from Jefferson County to Edwards County, Kansas, where he grew to adulthood.
He married Estie Olive Collier 2 Sep 1903 at Kinsley, Edwards County, Kansas. Five children were born of this union: Orville Floyd, born 7 Jul 1904; Meredith Hiram, born 10 Jul 1906; Maryba Almeda, born 16 Apr 1910; Blanche Delores, born 29 Nov 1914; and Bessie Arline, born 29 Sep 1919.
Grandpa was a carpenter by trade; and one of my earliest memories of him is of the Christmas when I was four. He built me a grand dollhouse with six rooms, dormered roof and shutters. That Christmas, he also built me a doll bed, toy chest, and a miniature ironing board. What a luck little girl I was. These toys are now in storage for my first granddaughter.
Because he worked as a carpenter, he would get up at the wee hours (4:00 AM) of the morning to go to work. I can remember getting up with him to have flapjacks and syrup. I was three or four at the time. How my parents must of loved it.
Grandpa played the harmonica. His favorite ditty was the “Blue Tailed Fly.” I would sit for hours listening to him play. His favorite phrase for all my ailments was a mysterious illness call the “Eppazootics.”
His favorite past-time in later years of visiting us was sitting for hours on Saturday afternoons and watching all the old hour operas on TV. He also insisted that the “Lone Ranger” and the “Cisco Kid” actually lived.
Grandpa loved boiling his own coffee. He would start a pot early in the morning, and as the day wore on, kept adding more coffee and more water, until by evening, it would be so strong, that as my mother would say, “it would eat the bowl off the spoon.” He always compensated for it by adding at least for teaspoons of sugar to his cup of coffee.
Grandpa lived to be 92 years old and up until the last six months of his life, he was a bright energetic little man who had a fantastic memory for the history. Much of what I know about the Ford Family came for him.
He passed away 9 Nov 1971 and is buried along with Grandma Estie in the family plot at Hillside Cemetery, Kinsley, Kansas.
Second story shared from Dale Allen Kuhn, Grandson.
When my Grandparents would come to Wichita to visit my Grandpa took it upon his self that he would run rough shod over the Kuhn boys and get all the yard cleaned up. Trees trimmed, grass mowed, house siding washed and the yard rake. He would get of to us all day long to get the work done, sometimes we would wonder how much longer he would be visiting then Grandma would come outside and get him a few choice words to leave those boys alone.
After Grandma passed, I remember going to visit Grandpa and he would fix breakfast each morning for all of us. He always ate fried bacon and eggs, everyday. And his coffee was so good, of course with lots of sugar. Our family would come out to Grandpa’s so my Dad could work in the fields during harvest. We would stay at Grandpa’s house and he would make us rake the yard of all the leaves.

· Corington Odell Ford StoryPosted 03 Apr 2011 by bat175CORINGTON ODELL FORD
First story as shared from Meredith Frances Ford DeBuse, Granddaughter.
Corington Odell Ford was born 15 Aug 179, at Mt Vernon, Jefferson County, Illinois. His parents were Thomas Jefferson Ford and Almeda May Allen, who were married 29 Nov 1877. Grandpa was the eldest of eight children born of this union: William Canby, Ralph, Forrest, Velma, unnamed daughter, Eliza, and Catherine William and Forrest did not survive childhood; and unnamed daughter either was stillborn or didn’t live beyond the day of her birth.
When Grandpa was about six years old, his family moved from Jefferson County to Edwards County, Kansas, where he grew to adulthood.
He married Estie Olive Collier 2 Sep 1903 at Kinsley, Edwards County, Kansas. Five children were born of this union: Orville Floyd, born 7 Jul 1904; Meredith Hiram, born 10 Jul 1906; Maryba Almeda, born 16 Apr 1910; Blanche Delores, born 29 Nov 1914; and Bessie Arline, born 29 Sep 1919.
Grandpa was a carpenter by trade; and one of my earliest memories of him is of the Christmas when I was four. He built me a grand dollhouse with six rooms, dormered roof and shutters. That Christmas, he also built me a doll bed, toy chest, and a miniature ironing board. What a luck little girl I was. These toys are now in storage for my first granddaughter.
Because he worked as a carpenter, he would get up at the wee hours (4:00 AM) of the morning to go to work. I can remember getting up with him to have flapjacks and syrup. I was three or four at the time. How my parents must of loved it.
Grandpa played the harmonica. His favorite ditty was the “Blue Tailed Fly.” I would sit for hours listening to him play. His favorite phrase for all my ailments was a mysterious illness call the “Eppazootics.”
His favorite past-time in later years of visiting us was sitting for hours on Saturday afternoons and watching all the old hour operas on TV. He also insisted that the “Lone Ranger” and the “Cisco Kid” actually lived.
Grandpa loved boiling his own coffee. He would start a pot early in the morning, and as the day wore on, kept adding more coffee and more water, until by evening, it would be so strong, that as my mother would say, “it would eat the bowl off the spoon.” He always compensated for it by adding at least for teaspoons of sugar to his cup of coffee.
Grandpa lived to be 92 years old and up until the last six months of his life, he was a bright energetic little man who had a fantastic memory for the history. Much of what I know about the Ford Family came for him.
He passed away 9 Nov 1971 and is buried along with Grandma Estie in the family plot at Hillside Cemetery, Kinsley, Kansas.
Second story shared from Dale Allen Kuhn, Grandson.
When my Grandparents would come to Wichita to visit my Grandpa took it upon his self that he would run rough shod over the Kuhn boys and get all the yard cleaned up. Trees trimmed, grass mowed, house siding washed and the yard rake. He would get of to us all day long to get the work done, sometimes we would wonder how much longer he would be visiting then Grandma would come outside and get him a few choice words to leave those boys alone.
After Grandma passed, I remember going to visit Grandpa and he would fix breakfast each morning for all of us. He always ate fried bacon and eggs, everyday. And his coffee was so good, of course with lots of sugar. Our family would come out to Grandpa’s so my Dad could work in the fields during harvest. We would stay at Grandpa’s house and he would make us rake the yard of all the leaves.
