Descendants of Barney Hagan

By Robert Lane



 

First Generation

 

1.  Barney Hagan13 was born Unknown. He was probably born in Ireland.


According to the Irish web site Ireland-information.com, the Irish name Hagan is derived from the Gaelic O'hAgain Sept that was originally rendered as O'hOgain, from a Gaelic word meaning 'young'.  This Sept was located in the province of Ulster and in County Tyrone in particular.  Another Sept, O'hAodhagain of County Amagh, also anglicized their name as O'Hagan.

 

Beth Conaster and other researchers reported that brothers John, Barney and William came over from Ireland.  Between 1767 and 1775, the brothers received land grants from the British Crown in Mecklenburg County, NC; several hundred acres on Cedar and Glady Forks of 12 Mile Creek.  The family was in New York for about a year before moving to Virginia.  Barney enlisted in the 12th Virginia Continental Line during the Revolutionary war.  He was killed in the war in 1777, and son Arthur (Black Art) inherited his land warrants in Kentucky.  Arthur evidently moved most or all of the family to TN/KY where he was a bondsman for Thomas Hagan's marriage to Nancy Birdwell.  None of this data is proven, although Ancestry.com posted the contents of "Revolutionary War Records: Virginia".  Section III, Virginia Military Land Warrants, Virginia Military District of Ohio, Granted for Revolutionary War Service; Continental State Line, Beginning August 8, 1782, page 445, which lists the following: Number = 2878, Warrantees = Barney Hagan, decd. (Arthur Hagan, heir at law), Rank & Service = Sgt., War.  This lends some credence to part of the data.

He died Unknown.

 

Barney Hagan and Rachel Biram were married about 1759.  Beth Conatser reported that Barney married Rachel Biram, daughter of Bryant Biram and Christian Stallings, about 1759 in Essex County, Va.  Rachel Biram23 was born in 1744 in Virginia, United States.  She died Unknown.  Various sources report 1776, 1778 and 1846.  None of this information has been proven, although there was a grandchild named William Biram, which lends credence to the suggestion that her maiden name was Biram.

 

Barney Hagan and Rachel Biram had the following children:

 

              2              i.   Arthur "Black Art" Hagan, born between 1760 and 1770.

              3             ii.   Arthur "Red Art" Hagan, born between 1760 and 1765.

 

 


 

Second Generation

 

2.  Arthur "Black Art" Hagan1,45 was born between 1760 and 1770.  The story related in The History of Monroe Co. implies that he was born in Ireland.  However, it's possible that he was born in the United States.  See the marriage data for his father.

 

The History of Monroe Co: 1820 - 1988 reports that Arthur was kidnapped by some sailors and forced to serve on a ship sailing to New York.  When they arrived in New York, he managed to escape.  His parents thought he was dead and later had another son and named him Arthur after their son that was lost.  They soon migrated to America, settling in New York.  After they had been there for awhile, they found their lost son.  The eldest Arthur had black hair and the youngest Arthur had red hair, so, to distinguish their names, they called the eldest "Black Art" and the youngest "Red Art".  Black Art Hagan migrated southward and settled in Washington County, Tenn.  He was listed on the 1796 tax list.  He migrated to Barren County, Ky. around 1803.  That part of Barren County is now a part of Monroe County.  He settled on a farm east of Tompkinsville near the present Monroe County Medical Center.  He camped and lived in a cave until he could build a house.  He married Jane Means, believed to be the daughter of Isaac Means Sr.  Arthur and Jane were the parents of several children, among them were Nancy Lumira, married Isaac Jackson; Jane, married William Rush; Mary, married Edward Fraley; Elizabeth, married Robert Leaster; Margaret, born 1803, married Elijah Wright Harlan; Arthur Jr., Hiram and John Hagan.  John Hagan married Hannah Harlin, a sister to Elijah Wright Harlan.  [Note: Doug Moore's research indicated that Elizabeth and Arthur Jr. actually belonged to Red Art].  Although the story of the two Arthurs might be a little hard to believe, it does have some factual basis.  A study of the land tax records of early Monroe (Barren) county shows two Arthur Hagans, one who was often labeled with the word "black" or letter "B" and the other labeled "red" or "R". 

Donna Chilton Derrick reported hearing a family story that Arthur stowed away on a ship coming from Ireland.  Her aunt Wilma Chilton Cornwell has a dish which was sent by the Irish family as a wedding gift.  This story is consistent with the story from the history book.

Luther Hagan had related to Donald Hagan that the Hagans originally lived in the Asheville, NC area, although there is no proof of this.

 

He appeared in the census in 1820 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  It lists 1 male 10-15, 1 male over 45 and 1 female over 45.

 

He died about 1828 at the age of 68 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.

He died Unknown.  Doug Moore reported that Thomas doesn't appear in any records after 1804.

 

Thomas Hagan and Nancy Birdwell were married on September 15, 1801 in Washington, Tennessee, United States.  Doug Moore reported that there is no proof of the marriage.  However, Beth Conatser reported that a historical magazine in Missouri stated that Thomas and Nancy were married.  She contacted Dayton Birdwell (who compiled the data in History of Monroe Co: 1820-1988) and was told that he was pretty sure that this marriage occurred and that after Thomas died Nancy married a Farily and moved to Illinois.  Nancy Birdwell1 was born on February 11, 1784.  She died on October 1, 1872 at the age of 88.

 

5.  Nancy Lumira Hagan1,46 was born about 1785 in Tennessee, United States.

Nancy Lumira Hagan and David "Isaac" Jackson were married on September 26, 1805 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States. (Kentucky Marriages To 1850).  David "Isaac" Jackson1,6 was born in 1788 in Virginia, United States.  He died before 1850 at the age of 62.  This is based on the fact that he doesn't appear with the family in the 1850 census.

 

David Jackson and Nancy Lumira Hagan had the following children:

 

           12              i.   Margaret Jackson, born about 1810.

           16              i.   Elizabeth Frailey, born about 1814.

 

7.  Sarah Hagan1,4,6 was born about 1795 in Tennessee, United States.

 

She appeared in the census in 1820 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1830 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1840 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1850 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  It lists Siney (56), Solomon (15) and Margaret (13).

 

She died in May, 1860 at the age of 65 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  The Monroe County mortality schedule lists an S. Goodman, female, age 67, who died on this date, cause of death was dropsy.  This is assumed to be Sarah.

 

Sarah Hagan and Solomon Goodman were married on February 10, 1813 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States (Kentucky Marriages To 1850).  Solomon Goodman1,4,6 was born about 1792.  He appeared in the census in 1820 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1830 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1840 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  He died Unknown.  It is assumed to be before 1850 since he is not with Sarah in the 1850 census.

 

8.  Jane "Jennie" Hagan1,46 was born about 1797 in Tennessee, United States.

 

She appeared in the census in 1850 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1860 in Ursa Township, Adams, Illinois, United States.  

 

Diane Lehner reported finding a Jane Hagan that  came from Monroe/Barren Co. KY to Wayne County.  She was born in 1797, the daughter of Arthur Hagan.  William was in Wayne County in the 1870 census.

 

She died before 1870 at the age of 73.  This is based on the 1870 census, where William appears to be a widower.  She may have died in Wayne County, IL.   

 

Jane "Jennie" Hagan and William Rush were married on April 13, 1814 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States (Kentucky Marriages To 1850).  William Rush1,4,6, son of James Rush and Molly [Unknown], was born about 1794 in Virginia, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1850 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  It lists William (56), Jane (53), Jemima (31), Rachel (21), John (19), George (18), Sarah (15), Delilah (13), Hewlit (8) and Merinda (5).  There are other people in the household whose relationship is unclear.  He appeared in the census in 1860 in Ursa Township, Adams, Illinois, United States.

           24          viii.   Hewlit Rush, born about 1842.

           25            ix.   Merinda Rush, born about 1845.

 

9.  John Hagan1,46 was born about 1798 in Lincoln, Kentucky, United States.  His son Arthur reported his birthplace as Tennessee in the 1880 census.  Some researchers report it as Hawkins County, Tennessee, although this has not been proven.

 

There is conflicting data concerning John and Hannah.  It starts with "History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family", published by Alpheus H. Harlan in 1914, which states that Hannah Harlan married John Hagan, removed to Missouri, and died there.  Subsequent researchers have stated that John and Hannah moved to Missouri about 1842 and died about 1870 in Mt. Vernon, Lawrence, Missouri.   Given the birth dates and places of their children, the date of 1842 for their departure from Monroe County, Kentucky appears to be accurate.  However, census data disputes the suggestion that they went to Missouri.  In 1850, they were in Montgomery County, Tennessee, just south of Illinois. By 1860, they were in Illinois, living in Franklin and Jefferson Counties.  Many of their children and a few other relatives also settled in this area.  Hannah appears to be a widow in the 1880 census, making it likely that John died in this area, not in Missouri.  Given Hannah's age by 1880, it is also unlikely that she migrated to Missouri before she passed away.  Possibly researchers have confused Mt. Vernon, Missouri with Mt. Vernon, Illinois.

 

Doug Moore searched the early records for Monroe and surrounding counties and made these observations:  There was only one John Hagan in the 1820 - 1840 censuses.  Even though there is a slight discrepancy in his age between 1830 and 1840, it is fairly certain that it is the same John Hagan in each of these censuses.  John Hagan also appears in the property tax records from 1821 through 1840.  Again, there is only one, and it is fairly certain that this is the same John Hagan of the censuses. 

 

He appeared in the census in 1820 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  It lists 1 male 19-25, 1 female 0-10 and 1 female 16-25.  He appeared in the census in 1830 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  It lists 2 males 10-15, 1 male 30-40, 3 females 0-5, 1 female 10-15 and 1 female 20-30.  He appeared in the census in 1840 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  It lists 1 male 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 1-male 15-20, 1-male 30-40, 3 females 0-5, 1 female 5-10, 2 females 10-15 and 1 female 30-40.  He appeared in the census in 1850 in Montgomery, Tennessee, United States.  It lists John (49), Parmela H. (47), John (16), Martha (14), Lucinda (12), Margaret (10) and Missouri (6).  His occupation was farmer. He appeared in the census in 1860 in Spring Garden, Jefferson, Illinois, United States.  It lists John (59) and Isabel (16) living with daughter Margaret.  His occupation was day laborer.  Hannah was not listed.  Perhaps she was there, but was missed by the enumerator.  Doug Moore wondered if she might have been staying with son Arthur to help care for his new son, Osa.  He appeared in the census in 1870 in Township 5, Range 3, Franklin, Illinois, United States.  It lists John (70) and Permelia (68).  His occupation was farmer.

 

He died Unknown. Census data suggests that he died before 1880.

 

John Hagan and Hannah Permelia Harlan were married on June 12, 1817 in Barren, Kentucky, United States, by John F. Dunham (Kentucky Marriages To 1850).  Their marriage license lists their fathers as Arthur Hagan and John Harland.  Siblings John and Margaret Hagan married siblings Hannah and Elijah Harlan.  Hannah Permelia Harlan1,4,6, daughter of John Harlan and Jemima Wright, was born about 1800 in Lincoln, Kentucky, United States.  Some sources report her name as Permelia Hannah and her birthplace as Barren County, KY.  Her son Arthur reported her birthplace as Tennessee in the 1880 census.  He reported her name as Sallie Batchelor on the marriage record with his last wife, Ruth, but all other evidence indicates this is incorrect.  She appeared in the census in 1820 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1830 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1840 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1850 in Montgomery, Tennessee, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1870 in Township 5, Range 3, Franklin, Illinois, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1880 in Ewing Township, Franklin, Illinois, United States.  It lists Hannah (77) living with daughter Margaret.  She died Unknown.  The Harlan book reports that she died in Missouri.  Some researchers report the place as Mt. Vernon, Lawrence, Missouri.  See the notes for her husband, John Hagan.

(7), Parmelia (5), Elizabeth (2), Missouri (2/12) and Jemima's sister Elizabeth Hagan (17).  He appeared in the census in 1860 in Mount Vernon, Lawrence, Missouri, United States.  It lists James (44), Jemima (39), Emory (20), Mary (19), Sarah (16), Parmelia (14), Elizabeth (12), Missouri (10), Sarah (7), Florence (5) and Martha (3).  He died before 1870 at the age of 55.  This is based on the fact that he doesn't appear with the family after the 1860 census.

 

James Bennett and Jemima Hagan had the following children:

 

           48              i.   Emory H. Bennett, born about 1839.

           49             ii.   Mary L. Bennett, born about 1841.

           50            iii.   Sarah A. Bennett, born about 1843.

           51            iv.   Parmelia W. Bennett, born about 1845.

           52             v.   Elizabeth Melinda "Betsy" Bennett, born about 1848.

           53            vi.   Missouri J. Bennett, born in 1850.

           54           vii.   Sarah J. Bennett, born about 1853.

           55          viii.   Florence G. Bennett, born about 1855.

           56            ix.   Martha F. "Mollie" Bennett, born about 1857.

 

27.  Arthur B. Hagan1,4,69 was born about 1823 in Kentucky, United States.  He reported his birthplace as Tennessee in the 1880 census, as did daughter Emma in the 1910 census, but all other data (including other censuses and his marriage record to Ruth Blake Qualkenbush as reported by Nancy Baker of Shoals, IN) indicate that Kentucky is the proper place.  His middle name was probably Benham, but this is not certain.  He was a farmer.

 

It is uncertain exactly when Arthur and Sarah moved to Franklin County, IL.  Arthur's parents, sister Jemima and family, and perhaps others left Monroe County, KY about 1842.  Jemima and family were in Illinois by about 1845 and were in Franklin County, IL for the 1850 census.  When Sarah's parents were given letters of dismissal from Mill Creek Church in Sept. 1849, they also moved to Franklin County, IL.  Arthur and Sarah could have followed his sister to Illinois, or they could have stayed in Monroe County, KY and accompanied Sarah's parents to Illinois.  Arthur and Sarah moved to Jefferson County, IL around 1856, then to Bond County, IL, sometime before 1865.  Arthur came to Orange County, IN between 1870 and 1873, probably because Sarah's brothers, William and David Baxter, had moved there.  

 

He appeared in the census in 1850 in Franklin, Illinois, United States.  It lists Arthur (26), Sally (27), Elizabeth (4) and J.A. (2) living next door to Arthur's brother John.  He appeared in the census in 1860 in Jefferson, Illinois, United States.  It lists Arthur (35), Sarah (36), Elizabeth (13), James (11), Warren (7), Emma (4) and Osa (2/12).  He appeared in the census in 1870 in Beaver Creek, Bond, Illinois, United States.  It lists Arthur (47), Sarah (47), James (21), Emma (13), Osa (10) and Sarah's sister Nancy Baxter [who later married Arthur] (37).  He appeared in the census in 1880 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Arthur (57) and Nancy (46) living next door to son Osa.

 

He served in the military in 1865 in the American Civil War.  He served in Company I of the 3rd Illinois Cavalry.  His Illinois Civil War detail report found on the State of Illinois web site reported the following:

Personal Characteristics:  Residence was Pocahontas, Bond County, IL, occupation farmer, nativity Kentucky, 42 years old, 5'11" tall, light hair, blue eyes, florid complexion.

Service Record:  Joined on March 23, 1865 in Jacksonville, IL by Capt. Hamilton.  He mustered in on March 24, 1865 in Jacksonville, IL.  He mustered out on October 10, 1865 at Fort Snelling, MN, by Capt. Bingham.  He attained the rank of Corporal.

Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Illinois (1900-1902) reports that the regiment was organized at Camp Butler in August, 1861.  It fought in Missouri and Arkansas, and at Vicksburg during Sherman's movement on the town.  In August, 1864, the Illinois regiments were consolidated into six companies.  In September, the consolidated 3rd Cavalry left Memphis and fought in a number of battles in Tennessee. In February, 1865, they were in Eastport, Mississippi.  This must have been where Arthur joined them when he enlisted in March.  In May, the unit returned to St. Louis, and from there went to St. Paul, MN.  On July 4, it started on an Indian expedition over the plains of Minnesota and Dakota, going north to the British possessions, and returning by way of Devil's Lake and Fort Berthold thence to Fort Snelling, arriving on October 1 and reaching Springfield, IL, on October 18 ,1865, where it was mustered out.

Arthur filed a claim against his military pension as an invalid on October 18, 1886.  His declaration stated "He contracted scurvy and chronic diarrhea from use of swamp water, improper diet, and from material poisoning.  Chronic diarrhea has resulted in disease of rectum.  Also at or near St. Paul Minnesota on or about the 1st day of July 1865 incurred varicose veins of left leg caused by mounting and dismounting his horse and fatigue."  An affidavit on his behalf was filed by Benjamin F. McIver.

His wife Ruth filed for his pension on January 26, 1899.  It apparently took her 2 years to get the amount of $8 per month.

 

He died on April 28, 1898 at the age of 75 in Martin, Indiana, United States. This date was reported by Ruth Hagan in her application for Arthur's military pension.  Some of the papers report the year as 1895, but given the papers as a whole, 1898 seems more likely to be the correct year.

 

Arthur B. Hagan and Sarah A. "Sally" Baxter were married between 1841 and 1845 in Kentucky, United States.  Sarah was a sister of Arthur's second wife, Nancy J. Baxter.  Sarah A. "Sally" Baxter1,6,8,10, daughter of John C. Baxter and Elizabeth Hestand, was born about 1823 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1840 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1850 in Franklin, Illinois, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1860 in Jefferson, Illinois, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1870 in Beaver Creek, Bond, Illinois, United States.  She died between 1870 and 1873 at the age of 47.

Arthur B. Hagan and Nancy J. Baxter were married on April 4, 1873 in Orange, Indiana, United States. (book C-6, page 211).  Nancy was a sister of Arthur's first wife, Sarah Baxter. Nancy J. Baxter1,4,6,8,11, daughter of John C. Baxter and Elizabeth Hestand, was born about 1834 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States. She appeared in the census in 1840 in Monroe, Kentucky, United States. She appeared in the census in 1850 in Franklin, Illinois, United States. Nancy appeared in the census in 1870 in Beaver Creek, Bond, Illinois, United States. It lists Nancy (37) living with her brother-in-law and sister, Arthur and Sarah Baxter Hagan. She appeared in the census in 1880 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States. She died on April 20, 1890 at the age of 56 in Orange, Indiana, United States. Nancy was buried at Moore's Ridge Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

 

Arthur B. Hagan and Ruth Overbey were married on November 16, 1891 in Martin, Indiana, United States (book 5, page 376).  Ruth Overbey4,6,10,12 was born in December, 1839 in Indiana, United States.  This date is from the 1900 census.  Her death certificate reported July 25, 1840.   However, she died on July 25 and it is possible that the person filling out the death certificate made a mistake on the month and day.  Ruth's maiden name was the object of speculation for decades.  In the 1960's, Marvin Beatty thought her maiden name was Shields.  Around 2000, Nancy Baker of Shoals, IN, found Ruth and Arthur's marriage record, which listed her as Ruth Blake Qualkenbush.  The Martin County WPA marriage index has entries for both Ruth Blake and Ruth Qualkenbush.  It was assumed that Blake was her maiden name and Qualkenbush was from a prior marriage.  In 2012, Robert Lane received copies of Arthur Hagan's military records from Donna Chilton Derrick, which revealed that Ruth's first husband was Peter Qualkenbush, who died on April 6, 1891.  Robert was able to locate the family in the 1870 and 1880 censuses, and found an entry in the WPA marriage index for Orange county for Peter Qualkenbush to Ruth Overbey.  Further research found Ruth with her birth family in the 1850 and 1860 censuses, as well as Find-A-Grave entries for Peter and Ruth.  The death date on his stone matches Arthur's records.  The death date on Ruth's stone matches the WPA death index entry for Ruth Hagan.  Ages match the censuses.  In 2016, her death certificate was found.  It listed her father as John Overby and mother as Mary (no maiden name listed).  She appeared in the census in 1850 in Southeast Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1860 in Southeast Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1870 in Columbia Township, Martin, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1880 in Columbia Township, Martin, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1900 in Columbia Township, Martin, Indiana, United States. It lists Ruth (60), living alone.  She died on July 25, 1905 at the age of 65 in Halbert Township, Martin, Indiana, United States (book COH-11, page 56).   Her death certificate reported the following: cause of death was cancer, residence was Halbert Township, Martin County, Indiana, occupation was domestic, her marital status was widow.. She was buried at Simmons Way Cemetery in Martin, Indiana, United States.

               

28.  Elizabeth Hagan1,34 was born on September 30, 1832 in Kentucky, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1850 in Franklin, Illinois, United States.  It lists Elizabeth (17) living with her sister Jemima.  She died on March 18, 1928 at the age of 95 in Kentucky, United States.  Her birth and death dates come from Ancestry.com postings.  There were no citations, so the data should be treated as unproven.

Grandmother Mary was living with Bernice at that time.  Bernadine (Bernice's only child), Bob and Pam (Bessie's children) and I were all playing and talking in the yard.  Bob and I were in High School I think, or at least in the 8th grade.  All of a sudden one of the adults asked what was the matter with the cat.  Bernice had a big cat, and it was wandering around like it was drunk and moving in circles. They all said 'What did you do to the cat?'  We of course said we did not do anything, which we didn't.  Then Welby Pedigo picked up the cat and said 'Someone has cut off one side of the cat's whiskers!' Immediately everyone said 'Okay, which one of you kids did that to this poor cat?'  Of course we denied it, and in fact we had not done it.  We kids came to the conclusion that Mary must have done it because she was doing some stitching and was the one who had the scissors.  On the way home that day I got grilled by my father, and I swore that we had not done it.  So finally he also came to the conclusion Grandma Mary must have done it."  Bernadine Pedigo Gorgas disputed this story, saying that it was actually Bessie Hagan Pedigo who had cut the whiskers off a cat when she was a child.  She died on March 12, 1955 at the age of 85 in Santa Ana, Orange, California, United States.  Bernadine Gorgas reported that Mary had been living with daughter Bernice in Fullerton, CA, and that she died in the hospital.  The Springs Valley Herald (March 17, 1955) reported "Mrs. Martha Margaret Hagan, 85, widow of Osa Hagan, died Saturday in the home of a daughter in Santa Ana, Cal.  She formerly lived near French Lick.  The body was flown to Indianapolis Tuesday and then brought to the Ritter funeral home here, where services were held Wednesday afternoon with the Rev. T. O. Younce officiating.  Burial was in Mt. Lebanon cemetery.  She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Albert Pedigo and Mrs. Welby Pedigo, both of Santa Ana, and Mrs. Walter Robbins of West Baden, and one son, Luther Hagan of French Lick."  She was buried at Mount Lebanon Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

103.  Luther John Hagan4,67,910,1719,2728 was born on February 2, 1892 in Orange, Indiana, United States.  Luther reported that he was named John Luther Hagan at birth.  His names were switched on U.S. Army records during World War I, and he chose to accept this order rather than to go to the trouble of getting the correction made.  Donald Hagan reported that when he was young, older people would refer to Luther as "Johnny Hagan", and the 1900 census lists him as John L., which seems to support this story.   However, he signed his draft registration form as Luther, not John.  He was a good tinsmith, carpenter, mason and plumber, but did other things as well. 

Donald Hagan recalled Luther telling him that he hated farming.  His first store-bought toy from Osa was child-sized hoe, and he was expected to use it to help with the family farming operation.  In spite of  this, he worked as a farm hand on many occasions.  Luther told Donald Hagan that he had worked in South Dakota harvesting wheat.  This was in the days of steam engine powered thrashing machines.  It seems that young men would proceed in front of these huge machines in lines, cutting wheat with large hand scythes.  His draft card listed him as a farm hand in Illinois.  James Lane recalled that Luther had been a dairyman early in his career, and this may have been what he was doing when he worked for Andy Cope.  Donald Hagan reported that Luther had been employed by the hotel as a baker, probably before he enlisted in the service.  Don reported that after Luther got old, he would bake pies on Sunday - maybe three or four - and set them on the window sill in the kitchen to cool.

 

He appeared in the census in 1900 in Steen Township, Knox, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1910 in Northwest Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1920 in Jackson Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1930 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Luther (38), Agnes (27), Reid (4) and Patricia (1) living on the French Lick-Jasper road.  He appeared in the census in 1940 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Luther (48), Agnes (37), Reid (14), Patricia (11), Elvin (9), Marion (7), Donald (5/12) and Agnes' mother, Jeanetta Beatty Cope (78) living on Hawhee Road (is this an earlier name for Grape Vine Hollow Road?).  His occupation was farmer.  His highest level of education was 8th grade, Agnes had completed 1 year of college.

 

He served in the military in World War I.  His World War I draft registration card (dated May 23, 1917) describes him as medium height, slender build, blue eyes and light hair.  His occupation was farm hand for George Sherman in Roberts, Ford County, IL.  His residence was French Lick, IN.  In that era young men did not register until the draft was actually instituted for a particular conflict.  Luther related to sons Elvin and Donald that he had attempted to enlist in the Artillery (which was a separate branch in those days), but was turned down because he was too small.  He then approached the Navy and was rejected for the same reason.  He then "volunteered for the draft", which consisted of contacting the local draft board.  The board would then would move your name to the top of the list, so that when the next call came from Washington DC, you would be first to go.  Apparently, his draft card reflects that action.  He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for bravery.  The Cross and the related citations were framed by James Lane for Luther's daughter, Patricia Hagan Lane.  After Patricia's death, they went to the Hagan family.  An entry in the Indiana Book of Merit reports "Hagan, Luther J.  Private, 1980191, Company K, 119th Infantry, 30th Division, Distinguished Service Cross, General Orders no. 81, War Department, 1919: Near Bellicourt, France, September 29, 1918.  When his squad was held up by fire from a sniper's post he advanced alone against it across an open space and drove the others off, allowing a renewal of the advance.  Later he braved heavy shell fire to go to the aid of wounded soldiers, dressing their wounds and assisting them back to the lines.  Record:  Born February 2, 1892, French Lick; son of Osa M. and Margaret (Bolling) Hagan.  Farmer, French Lick.  Entered service October 6, 1917, Paoli.  Training: Camp Taylor, Ky.; Camp Sevier, S.C.  Assigned to Company D, 335th Infantry; transferred to Company M, 335th Infantry; to Company K, 119th Infantry.  Overseas May 12, 1918-April 2, 1919.  Battles: Ypres, Bellicourt, St. Souplet.  Discharged April 21, 1919.  Married Agnes Cope.  Son, Reid Cope, daughters Rae Marven (deceased), Patricia Allain."  His World War II draft registration card (1942) listed his address as R.R. 2, French Lick, IN.  His wife was Agnes Hagan, and he was employed by William Elledge.

 

Donald Hagan recalled Luther saying that Osa had promised the farm to Luther upon Osa's demise.  Unfortunately, there was no will.  Somehow, there was a conflict that resulted in the property being sold.  Martha Hagan Robbins, Dad's next younger sister, was behind this.  Don wasn't sure whether she sued or whether the disposition of the property landed in court because Osa was intestate.  He did recall that Luther never spoke to Martha after that, and he was rather bitter about the whole matter.

 

He died on May 21, 1972 at the age of 80 at Orange County Hospital in Paoli, Orange, Indiana, United States. Donald Hagan reported that Luther had a stroke around 1966.  Agnes cared for him at home until she passed away.  He stayed at home for a while afterward, with Elvin and Don providing care.  Robert Lane reported that Luther eventually came to live with his parents, James and Patricia Hagan Lane in Terre Haute, IN.  He was given Robert's bedroom, and Robert took up residence in the basement.  When Patricia could no longer provide adequate care, Luther was moved to a nursing home on Woodsmall Road south of Terre Haute, and later transferred to The Gorge nursing home in French Lick.  Donald Hagan reported that Luther was diagnosed with colon cancer while in The Gorge, and that is what killed him.  His death certificate reported the following: cause of death was uremia due to cancer of the bowel, his residence was R.R. 2, French Lick, Indiana, his occupation was tin smith, his marital status was widower.  The Bedford Daily Times-Mail (May 22, 1972) reported "Luther Hagan, 80, Route 2, French Lick, passed away early Sunday morning at the Orange County Hospital.  Graveside funeral will be Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Cane Creek Cemetery with burial there.  A veteran of WWI, Mr. Hagan is survived by: Five children, Mrs. James Lane, Terre Haute, Reid and Elvin Hagan, both of Route 2, French Lick, Dr. Marion Hagan of West Baden, and Don Hagan of Minneapolis, Minn.; two sisters, Mrs. Albert Pedigo and Mrs. Welby Pedigo, both of Los Angeles, Calif.; one half-sister, Mrs. Charles Flick of Paoli; seven grandchildren.  Friends may call after 7 p.m. Tuesday at Brosmer-Drabing Funeral Home in French Lick."  He was buried at Cane Creek Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

 

Luther John Hagan and Agnes Ione Cope were married on June 6, 1923 in Orange, Indiana, United States (book 21, page 182).  Bessie Hagan Pedigo reported that Agnes was a teacher at a one room school house in Jackson Township in Orange County and was Bessie's 1st grade teacher.  Luther came home from the first World War, and just saw her around and they began dating.  They lived in Muncie, IN when they were first married and Bessie thought their first child, Rae Marvin, may have been born there.  Donald Hagan reported that Agnes taught at Baker School, located on the country road north of Baseline Road west of SR 145.  Directly across the road lies the quarter section that was Osa Hagan's homestead.  This was likely where he settled his family after returning from the Wheatland area. Don felt it was this proximity of Osa's property to her place of employment that led to Agnes and Luther getting acquainted.  Agnes Ione Cope4,6,810,1619,27,29, daughter of Jesse Cope and Jeanetta Beatty, was born on April 13, 1903 in Orange, Indiana, United States (book H-6, page 4, which lists the date as April 15).  Don Hagan reported that Agnes attended Cuzco High School for her first two years (the school ceased to exist circa 1948 and is now part of Southridge at Huntingburg).  She then went to Birdseye, where she graduated, although Don doesn't know why she transferred.  While there, she stayed with her cousin Mary Ford Nelson.  Not many people went to high school in those days, especially if they were female.  Agnes taught at Baker School, located on the country road north of Baseline Road west of SR 145 in the early 1920's.  She later taught grades 1-3 at Springs Elementary School from 1953-1961 and grade 7 at Shoals Community High School from 1961-1962.  She appeared in the census in 1910 in Jackson Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1920 in Jackson Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1930 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1940 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She died on December 5, 1967 at the age of 64 in French Lick, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She\died in her sleep at home and was found the next morning by her daughter, Patricia Hagan Lane.  Her death certificate reported the following: cause of death was a heart attack, residence was R.R. 2, French Lick, occupation was school teacher, marital status was married.  The Springs Valley Herald (Thursday, December 7, 1967) reported "Mrs. Agnes Ione Hagan, 64, died early Tuesday morning at her home on R.R. 2, French Lick.  Death was attributed to a heart condition.  She had taught four years in the Shoals schools, three years in Orange County township schools, and for the past five years she served as a private tutor for children in this locality who are unable to attend regular classes at Springs Valley Schools.  She was a member of the Birdseye Christian Church.  The funeral will be held at 1:30 p.m. today (Thursday) at the Brosmer-Drabing Funeral Home.  Burial will be in the Cane Creek Cemetery.  She is survived by her husband, Luther; four sons, Dr. Marion Hagan of French Lick, Elvin, R.R. 2, French Lick, Reid of R.R. 2, French Lick, and Donald of Speedway; a daughter, Mrs. James Lane of Terre Haute; a brother, Lee Cope; and seven grandchildren." She was buried at Cane Creek Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

 

104.  Martha Washington "Marty" Hagan4,6,22,3132 was born on February 22, 1894 in Knox, Indiana, United States (book H-2, page 203).   Don Hagan reported that the family had lived in Wheatland, IN (near Vincennes) for a while.  She must have been born while they were there.

 

She appeared in the census in 1900 in Steen Township, Knox, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1910 in Northwest Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1920 in West Baden, Orange, Indiana, United States.  Her next-door neighbor was Perry Lane.  She appeared in the census in 1930 in West Baden, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1940 in West Baden, Orange, Indiana, United States.

This is the date on his grave stone.  His draft card and death certificate report January 3.  His World War I draft registration card (not dated) describes him as medium height, medium build, blue eyes and brown hair.  His occupation was hotel clerk for the West Baden Springs Company.  His residence was West Baden, IN.   He appeared in the census in 1900 in Northwest Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.

105.  Arthur Benham Hagan4,10,1621 was born on October 17, 1906 in Orange, Indiana, United States (book H-6, page 38).  Some of the family remembers him as Benham Arthur, but he was probably named after Osa's father.

 

He appeared in the census in 1910 in Northwest Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1920 in Jackson Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.

 

He died on May 25, 1929 at the age of 22 in Montana, United States.  The Montana Death Index reported that he died in Yellowstone County.  Burgoyne Drake related that there was an explosion and fire from a kerosene stove in a line camp in Montana where Benham was living.  Although he was not seriously burned, he contracted pneumonia and died as a result.  The Springs Valley Herald (June 20, 1929) reported "On Saturday, May 25, 1929 Arthur Benham Hagan passed away into the Great Beyond. Passed to meet his aged father who preceded him there six months before.  He was the second and youngest son of Osa and Margaret Hagan and was born in Orange County, Indiana near French Lick.  In this vicinity he spent his entire life until the past three years, during which time he has been in the Western part of the United States where he met his death.  He leaves to mourn their loss his mother and sisters, Martha and Bessie, all of French Lick, Catherine of Palmyra, Bertha of Paoli and Bernice of Newport, one brother, Luther of French Lick.  With the bereaved mother, sisters and brother herein mentioned he leaves many other relatives and friends.  It is comforting to know that in suffering death Benham has paid the debt all mankind must pay, is in the hands of the God of Love who is just merciful and kind, who doeth all things well."  He was buried at Mount Lebanon Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

 

Burgoyne Drake related that Benham was a handsome, good-natured, fun-loving young man.  His major weakness seems to be that he liked his women.  The story goes that he found himself with two of his girl friends pregnant at the same time.  The only solution he knew was to leave town, so he went to Montana where he became a cowboy.  It appears that Pauline McDonald was one of the women in the family story.  She gave her child Benham's surname.  Pauline McDonald4,6,10,27,33, daughter of John J. McDonald and Lillian Mae Love, was born on May 18, 1909 in Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1910 in French Lick, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1920 in French Lick, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1930 in Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana, United States.  It lists Pauline (20) living with James and Emma Knowles.  She is listed as a cousin.  She was married, but her husband was not with her.

Wabash.  His occupation was typewriter sales and service for Hoosier Supplies.  They are also listed in the 1946 Frankfort city directory, where Albert had moved up to office manager for Hoosier Supplies.

Notes

 

1.       Census Data:  Rather than repeat the detail from a family census entry in each persons record, it has been recorded only in the Head of Household record, and only the census year and location are recorded in the family member records (with a few exceptions, like adult children living with their parents).  If you are reviewing a person who is not the Head of Household, be sure to look at the Head of Household entry to see if there is additional information.

 

 

2.       Name Spelling:  Spelling of names in obituaries, newspaper articles, census records, etc., was often incorrect.  The spelling could be different in every place it is found.  When I report these facts for a person, I usually report the name as it was spelled, but in some cases I chose to correct the spelling. 

 

3.       Place Naming Convention:  I use the following:  place (township, city, institution, etc.), county, state, country.  Descriptive words are only used when needed for clarification.  Here are some examples:

 

Orangeville Town = Orangeville, Orange, Indiana, United States

Orangeville Township = Orangeville Township, Orange, Indiana, United States

 

4.       Direct Ancestral Line:  The direct ancestors of the author of this document are highlighted in blue.

 

5.       To the best of my knowledge, this document excludes living people.  However, mistakes happen.  If you have evidence that I have incorrectly listed a person as deceased, please contact me and I will correct my information. 

 

Genealogy research is always a work in progress.  No matter how much information you have, it is never complete.  No matter how much you check your work, it will always contain mistakes.  Please keep this in mind as you read this document.  If you can offer additional information or correct any mistakes, I would love to hear from you.
