CAPTAIN GABRIEL H. CRAMAR, farmer, section 5. Captain Cramar, who is now one of the substantial, well-to-do farmers of Lamine township, is essentially a self-made man so far as his own success in life is concerned. His father, John Cramar, was a successful farmer, but had a large family, and after the absorptive process of administration, partition, and so forth, had been none through with, Gabriel H's inheritance amounted to practically nothing. He was born in Lamine township, near where he now lives, July 28, 1822, and was reared on his father's farm. At the age of about twenty-three he was married September 11, 1845, to Miss Mary J. Jeffries, of this county, and afterwards followed farming and coopering, of which trade he was master, in Lamine township until 1850, when he went to Texas, but returned the following year to his native township in this county, and resumed his farming and coopering occupations. On his return he bought 100 acres of unimproved land for which he paid $4.25 per acre, and went to work to opening his present farm. Industry, good management and economy have not been slow to bring him substantial results. He has now a fine farm of over 400 acres of handsomely situated, rolling land, all under fence and well improved. Annually, he grows about 150 acres of grain and he also gives considerable attention to stock raising, particularly cattle and hogs. Mr. Cramar has been three times married. His first wife died in July, 1859. Off his family of children by this union, all five are living : Milton, now in Colorado ; Mary, wife of Thomas W. Hamilton, of Saline county; Lucinda, wife of Amos O'Neil; Victoria, still at home; and Gabriel, also at home, being married to Mary Hill. Mr. Cramar's second wife was, at the time of her marriage to him, a Mrs. Nancy, widow of Andrew Davenport, but she died April 22, 1866, leaving two children now living: Rebecca, wife of Henry Thurman, of Pettis county, and Lowell. His present wife, whose maiden name was Sarah Wright, was the widow of Matthias Majors, of this county.  She is a member of the Baptist church. Prior to the war, Mr. Cramar was elected captain of a military company, a position he filled during the service of the company. His parents, John and Rebecca (Allen) Cramar, came to this county during the first settlement of the country, and after stopping a while at Old Franklin improved the Castleman farm on section 5, where they lived until their deaths; the father died in 1854. He was a Pennsylvanian by birth. The mother died two years afterwards. She was originally from Virginia, but they were married in Kentucky, from which they emigrated to this state.  They had nine children, only one of whom, Susan, the widow of Lowell Spalding, is now living. Nearly all of them, however, lived to rear families of their own.(History of Howard & Cooper Counties, Missouri, 1883)

Both became consolidated and became known as Gilmer Oil Company. Mr Cramer has been successful in the oil fields and his property of 102 acres has 13 oil wells and 2 gas wells-Ref: History of Cooper Co, MO

Ray P. Cramer is one of Cooper County's progressive farmers and business men. He was born in Lamine Township, Sept. 25, 1880, and is the son of G. A. Cramer, Jr., who was the son of G. A. Cramer. Ray Cramer's grandfather came from Holland to this country. The ship in which he came was wrecked and he was one of the few survivors. He located first in Pennsylvania, then moved to Kentucky, and from there came to Cooper County and settled here soon after the first Turleys, thought to be about 1814.

The land upon which Ray P. Cramer now lives was a part of the tract on which his grandfather settled. Mr. Cramer's grandfather on his mother's side was Frank Hill, who came from Cincinnati, Ohio, and located in Cooper County soon after the Civil War. The subject of this sketch is the owner of 102 acres of highly improved and well cultivated land and is situated two miles west of Lamine station in Lamine Township. He has spent his entire life in Cooper County, except about one year which he spent in Oklahoma. He was educated in the public schools of the county, and took a special commercial course at another institution. He was the organizer of the Boonville Oil and Gas Company at Okmulgee, Okla., and the Gilmer Oil Company of the same place, both of which are now consolidated and known as the Gilmer Oil Company. Mr. Cramer has been successful in the oil fields and upon property aforesaid has seven producing oil wells and two productive gas wells. He is the manager of this company, and has the absolute confidence of those who have invested with him. They are mostly local men, and as a testimony of their confidence and esteem, they presented him a few months ago with a handsome $250 Victrola.

Mr. Cramer was married to Lilly K. Wing, the daughter of D. W. Wing, one of the most substantial citizens of central Missouri. The father of D. W. Wing came to Missouri and settled in Cooper County about 1818. Three children were born of this marriage: David, age 14; W. Russell, age 13, and Catherine Lucile, age six. David has graduated from the eighth grade and next year is to enter the Kemper Military School of this city.

Mr. Cramer is a Democrat of high degree, a member of the Christian Church, an estimable citizen, popular with all who know him, and successful in his ventures. (History of Cooper Co, MO, W F Johnson, 1919)

Pleasant Hill Cemetery & Pleasant Hill Baptist Church

Location: T-46-N; R-18-W; Section 25 - SE 1/4 of Section; near Pilot Grove, Mo. "A plot of land was deeded to a party, or parties; interested in establishing a burial ground, in the year 1852; seven or eight miles southwest of Boonville, Mo. The Pleasant Hill Baptist Church was also at this location. Many of the stones in this cemetery are unreadable; as the ravages of time and the elements have left them as they are. Many of the graves were marked only by ordinary stones, or as generally referred to, as fieldstones, some of which are still there; but not identifying the persons buried there. The following is a list of the stones, and graves, some marked and some not marked, the best that we have been able to list." Recorded by Mr. Tom Bryan and Mr. Charles Warnhoff. When the Pleasant Hill Church was disbanded, Mr. Tom Bryan was appointed to dispose of the property and also to give letters of membership to those who wished to join other congregations - some went to Mt. Herman and some to the Pilot Grove Churches. The church building was sold to the Lotspiech brothers and is still standing on the former church-yard which adjoins the cemetery. The building has been sided with tin and is used as a grainery. The cemetery is well cared for by a cemetery association.

Old Lamine Cemetery- There is no record of the origin of Old Lamine Cemetery; all that we know is: There is about an acre in the southeast corner that is filled with unmarked graves. The only marked graves in that corner are those of the Cramer Family and they have a family tradition that in the beginning it was Cramer Land that was donated for cemetery purposes. The remainder of the cemetery was donated in small plots of 1/2 to 1 acre. The first plots were donated by Mr. Thomas Mellar of Lamine Township in the 1870 decade. Later a plot was donated by Eddie and Billie Sims in 1906. All three of these plots were deeded to the Elders of Old Lamine Christian Church. There was a small Baptist Cemetery located in what is now the south-central part of the cemetery and which was added to by the moving of the Baptist Church to Blackwater. The part from the Baptist Church is about an acre in size. During the 1940's, the Old Lamine School was closed and became a part of the Blackwater School District. The Blackwater District donated the school yard to the cemetery. A new plot of three-fourth acre has just been purchased by the cemetery from Mr. and Mrs. Winkler. So much for the physical part of the cemetery; now as to organization and care of the cemetery: Previous to 1910, the cemetery was un-cared for and grew up in weeds and brush except for families caring for their own lots. During that year, the Ladies Old Lamine Cemetery Association was formed. The men met and cleared up the cemetery. It was sowed in bluegrass and sugar maples were set out along the driveways. I hesitate to try to name the ladies responsible for the organization - but to name a few families that I know were helpful would have to include: Gibsons; McMahans; Kincheloes; Turleys; Harrises; Sites; Wings; and others of the Old Pioneer families of the community. The ladies kept the cemetery in perfect condition for more than sixty years - financing it by donations - an annual bazaar and dinner, and ice-cream socials. However, as the community changed, it became a burden upon a few ladies to stage the annual affairs and another method had to be employed. In 1964, a meeting was called by the Ladies Association to discuss a Perpetual Fund. Mr. Gus Boller spoke at that meeting. Among other things, he said were "Organize tonight or it will be postponed indefinitely". There were men present who had considerable business experience and proposed a corporation resulting in the Old Lamine Cemetery Corporation, where a board of directors undertook to raise an endowment fund for the perpetual care of the cemetery. The raising of the fund and maintenance of the cemetery is now the responsibility of the Old Lamine Cem. Corp. While the fund is not yet large enough to guarantee the future, it is large enough that added to gate collections, it can take care of the cemetery at present. By Mr. D. T. Weekley, Blackwater, Mo. - May, 1981

Dr. Giles Norman Jeffries, from Kentucky, made his home for a time at Prairie du Rocher.  From there he moved to St. Louis, where he lived only a short time and then, at the earliest solicitation of Duteil Cabanne and Colonel Don Morrison, came to Belleville.  As Dr. W W Roman had only recently died and his friends were casting about for a successor to his practice, Dr. Jeffries appeared most fortunately on the scene.  Here was his opportunity, and he made good use of it. His welcome and his success were commensurate.  By his urbanity and his gentlemanly conduct,  no less than by his professional skill, he won and held the hearts of the community.  One thing more than all else that came into Dr. Jeffries' life for his good was his marriage to Mrs. Mary West Estes, "one who moved in an atmosphere of refined spirituality."  Dr. Jeffries was truly indebted  in many ways to his good wife, who brought him some of his best patrons.  She bore him three children-one daughter, Mrs. Louisa Osgood, and two sons, Giles Norman Jeffries, Jr., and Edmund Jeffries-all of whom live in Minneapolis, Minn.  Dr. Jeffries died at Belleville, after a brief illness, in 1876.  Born and educated in the sunny Southland, he carried with him all through his life the genial, fragrant comradeship of the born cavalier.  Children ran to meet him; they never saw him frown.  The  widow's heart sent up a prayer, as incense at the mention of his name.  The old couple on the farm, in their rustic simplicity and in their hard-handed honesty, almost welcomed a spell of bilious fever if it brought him under their rooftress.  He brought them all they needed, interpreted  the things in the hurly-burly of the changing world that they did not understand, and,  setting the seal of his approval  on all that they had done for his patient  and giving them all an honest opinion and an efficient remedy, he departed with their benedictions.

P 834- Dr. William W. Roman, who finished his work and died about half a century ago, was a medical giant, whose name and fame are written  large upon  the history of Belleville.  He was not only dictator in the medical world,  but reigned supreme in his social  and political environments.  From "that noble Roman" as he has been called,  keen students learned many valuable lessons.  Dr. Perryman was one of his students.  In a sense, Dr. Jeffries was his successor.

Religious Herald, December 8, 1859:

"Departed this life, in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, on the 26th of October, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Lucy Gregory, Mrs. Prudence Haskins, wife of Mr. Creed T. Haskins, in the 63rd year of her age. Her disease was dropsy of the heart. She was for many months a great sufferer, but was patient and resigned to the will of Him who chastens and afflicts those whom he loves. Mrs. Haskins made a profession of religion in early life, and was baptized by Elder William Richards, pastor of Bethel church. She leaves a husband and five children to mourn their loss. Yet they grieve not as those who have no hope. She had the pleasure of seeing her husband and all her children gathered into the church before the death. Oh, the example and prayers of a pious mother and wife! She was beloved by all who knew her. She was always an active, praying Christian and enjoyed her hope more and more as she approached the grave. The day before her death she seemed to get a foretaste of heaven - her faith and hope were in lively exercise. She exhorted all her friends, and spoke of death as only going on a journey. She sung several favorite hymns, and appeared very much improved, so that her friends began to entertain hope of her recovery; but next day she breathed her last whilst sitting in her chair. She filled all the relations of life with credit, and has left an example worthy of our imitation. 'Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints!' Amicus."

HANDBOOK OF TEXAS ONLINE

BUCK, BEAUMONT BONAPARTE (1860-1950). Beaumont Bonaparte Buck, army officer, was born in Mississippi on January 16, 1860. He was brought to Texas by his parents about 1870, attended school in Dallas, and joined the Texas militia in 1878. He graduated from the United States Military Academy on February 16, 1885, was assigned to the infantry on June 14, and was stationed at Fort McIntosh. There, on November 20, 1886, he married Kate Bernard, the daughter of his commanding officer, Col. R. F. Bernard. They had three children. Buck was stationed at Fort Ringgold in December 1886, was promoted to first lieutenant in the Nineteenth Infantry in May 1892, and in February 1898 was stationed at Fort Sherman, Idaho, on recruiting duty. In May 1898 he was sent back to Texas as a major in the Second Texas Volunteers. After an honorable discharge on November 9, 1898, he reentered the service as a captain in the Sixteenth Infantry in March 1899 and spent eight months in the Philippine Islands. In 1900-01 he conducted army personnel to the Philippines and Egypt. He was stationed at Fort William McKinley at Manila from 1907 to 1913. He was married a second time on December 30, 1908, and became the father of four children. Buck was promoted to major in 1908 and to lieutenant colonel in 1914. He was sent to France with the Twenty-eighth Infantry in 1916 and became a major general in August 1918. He had received the Distinguished Service Cross in 1909 and after his World War Iqv service was awarded the Medal of the French Legion of Honor, the Croix de Guerre, and other honors. He retired on June 10, 1925, and made his home in San Antonio. He headed the San Antonio Bicentennial Commission in 1932 and was a founder and president of the State Association of Texas Pioneers. In 1935 he wrote his reminiscences under the title Memories of Peace and War. He married Mrs. Virginia Rodgers in September 1949. Buck died in San Antonio on February 10, 1950, and was buried in the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. He was survived by his widow, two sons, and four daughters.

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

FAMILY OF RICHARD JEFFRIES,. of  ESSEX CO., VA

Richard Jeffries of Essex Co., Va appears to be closely related to John Jeffries SR of Lunenburg/Mecklenburg Co., Va. Also some of his descendants used the given name of Swepson-sgs

Richard Jeffries was born Ca 1725-28, as he was a grown man in 1750, when he was deeded  land in Essex Co by John Campbell.  He is probably the son of Thomas Jefferies listed in the 1715 Essex Co, Rent Rolls., and grandson of the Richard Jeffreys listed in the 1704 King & Queen Co, Rent Rolls.

Richard Jeffries is listed as serving in the Revolutionary War from Essex Co., Va (Abercrombie Booklet) but this record may apply to his son Richard JR), as I believe Richard SR would be too old to serve in the Rev. War.

He rec'd a land grant in 1783 in Essex Co., Va., of 56 acres on Dragon Swamp, dividing the land of Jeffries and William Newbill.

He married #1 UNKNOWN (Mother of his children)

He married #2 Mary (___) HOWERTON, Wid.of William Howerton.who died Essex Co., VA, 1781* and they later separated, filing a property agreement in 1792. (Essex Co. D33, P 387) He had previously given his children deeds of Gift, earlier that same year. (Essex Deeds, below. (* married after 1781, therefore, Mary is NOT the mother of any of Richard Jeffries' children)

Richard Jeffries died between 1799 -1800, as he appears in the 1799 Essex Co, Va Tax List, but only his Widow Mary & some children appear on the 1800 Essex Co, Tax List. 

His dtr Marcey Godfrey Jeffries left a Will in Mecklenburg Co, naming her father, Richard Jeffries, her brothers and sisters, and two of her brothers-in-law, namely Benajah Marshall, who had married her sister Rebecca, and (Rev) William Richards, who had married her sister Susannah.

Hardy prior to 1830, but was of Mercer Co as of July 22, 1834 when he wrote a letter to his Uncle John Young Richards in Mecklenburg Co., Va   They were in Boyle Co., Ky 1850-1870. Edward was living alone in Boyle Co in 1880.  Edward's sister Jane S Evans, b. abt 1833 Kentucky, (M) J G Harlan June 15, 1852 Boyle Co, Ky.. She appears in father's HH in 1860 w/o a husband or children.

 In Edward's letter to Uncle John Richards  in 1834 he mentioned "Sister was married the first day of May (1834) to Mr. Briscoe of this neighborhood" (I did not locate this marriage)

Dr. William R. Evans, a native of Mecklenburg County, Virginia, was born September 11, 1826, and is a son of Ludwell and Jane B. (Hardy) Evans, who came to Nicholas County, Kentucky, the same year. In 1833 they moved to Mercer County, where Ludwell Evans died in 1874, aged eighty-three years, his wife having died several years previously, aged sixty-three. Ludwell and his wife were of Welsh and English descent, respectively. At the age of fifteen William R. Evans, having completed the courses commonly taught in the schools in the neighborhood of father's farm, entered Bacon College at Harrodsburg, Kentucky. Having pursued the curriculum course of that institution for two or three years, he began to read medicine with Drs. Scales and McBrayer of Harrodsburg. He was a graduate from the medical department of the University of Louisville in 1850 and the following year was appointed assistant demonstrator of anatomy for the same institution and as such, with slight intermissions, served until the spring of 1855, also acting as private assistant to S. D. Gross, professor of surgery. He followed his profession in the interior of the State for awhile, and in the winter of 1862, went to Philadelphia, and further pursued his studies under Prof. Samuel D. Gross. He resumed active practice at Louisville, but failing health led to his purchasing a farm in the vicinity of Danville, where he combined agriculture with his medical practice. The Doctor was a charter member of the State Medical Society, is a member of the Boyle County Association, and has served repeatedly as delegate to the American Medical Association. He married, October 18, 1855, to Mary J. Lee Forsythe*, of Mercer County, daughter of Andrew and Narcissa (McAfee) Forsythe. Four children have been born to the Doctor and his wife, viz.: Jennie Lee (Jane Lee) (now Mrs. J. S. Robinson), William L.(udwig), Mary R. (now Mrs. C. T. Worthington) and Andrew F. The family are members of the Christian Church. In 1876 Dr. Evans removed to the city of Danville, his present place of residence, in order to avail himself of its superior educational advantages for his children.

JEFFREYS FAMILY-Surry Co., Va

I rec'd the following info from Kathy Awbry, on March 25, 2008, indicating the Jeffries/Jeffreys family of Surry Co., VA was of the Negro race

1. John1 Jeffries, born perhaps 1670, was a "Negroe man" belonging to Captain Robert Randall in July 1698 when Randall brought him before the Surry County Court to declare him a free man [Haun,Surry County Court Records, V:211]. He was probably the "John Negroe" for whom Captain Randall was taxable in 1698 [Magazine of Virginia Genealogy vol.24, no.2, 69]. He was taxable in his own household in Surry County from 1699 to 1703 near William Sweat [Ibid., 75, 83, no.3, 69, 72; DW 5:289]. On 18 February 1722 he received a patent for 100 acres in Surry County on the south side of Blackwater Swamp and Seacock Swamp [Patents 11:188]. He was called John Jeffries, Sr., in his 3 November 1746 Albemarle Parish, Surry County, will, recorded 16 June 1752, which named his daughter, Martha Jeffries, as executrix and gave her his land on Seacock Swamp. He also mentioned his daughter, Mary Powell, and  grandsons, John Jeffreys and Benjamin Tan [D&W 1738-54, 798].
