Sarah A. "Sally" Baxter and Arthur B. Hagan were married between 1841 and 1845 in Kentucky, United States.  Sarah was a sister of Arthur's second wife, Nancy J. Baxter.  Arthur B. Hagan1–5,9, son of John Hagan and Hannah Permelia Harlan, 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.  He immigrated to Franklin, Illinois, United States.  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).  Arthur 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.

This article appeared in an unknown paper around 1950, when Martha Baxter McIver was 103 years old.  "Martha Elizabeth Baxter was born around Tompkinsville, KY, on April 1, 1846.  The family lived very near the Cumberland Gap.  Here they watched their neighbors who had lived in peace don the blue and the gray and become bitter enemies. Most of the country around them became Southern in its sympathies, and Martha watched her brothers sneak out to join the Union Army.  After the boys left, the family was watched constantly by the Southerners, who were trying to capture the boys.  The stock was mostly stolen and the big, efficient farm became little more than a shelter.  Mrs. McIver laughed when she told that they had some fifty geese when the war started and when it was over they had saved only five. Their terror was complete when the guerillas captured her father and took him off to kill him.  The next day they brought him back weak and sore from a grueling ride.  He lay on the floor where they left him until he was strong enough to be moved.  One night a group came and made her mother cook all night long.  While they ate, they pastured their horses in the Baxter garden.  There was not much food and the family suffered much discomfort.  After the war was over, Abe and Elwood came back.  They had been "out" three years, and when they saw the state of affairs at home, they decided to leave.  Rioting was at its peak.  Neighbors and sometimes even families were still fighting. Guerillas were killing as many as during the war.  The night before the family left, two Union men were killed in the woods near the Baxter home.  Martha and her sisters, along with some other women, kept vigil at their bodies.  The men were afraid because the guerillas were not far away and were watching the bodies.  The little cemetery above the house was full of friends and relatives who had fallen.  The family moved from the farm to Louisville in a wagon.  They came through Tompkinsville, which had been burned the night before.  The smoke and rubble were her last recollections of her childhood home. She never returned to the home they left.  She was eighteen when they came to Indiana.  At Louisville, they boarded the first train Martha had ever ridden.  They came to Orleans and rode on the stage to French Lick.  Relatives met them and took them to Newton Stewart where they stayed for a week while they looked for a home.  She remembers the towns as being very small.  The station at Orleans was very little and the town wasn't scattered out so much.  The only thing that looks as it does now was the Paoli courthouse.  The thing that was strongest to the Baxters was the peacefulness of the country.  After the bitterness they had left, the friendly people were a welcome change. The home they found was in the Cane Creek Church vicinity south of French Lick.  Here the family worked in the fashion of the pioneers. There were cabin raisings, peach and apple cuttings, and general harvesting of the crops.  The church was log then, and many times the whole community met there.  There were corn husking bees and if any neighbor was ill, the rest of the community harvested his crops.  One of the most valuable crops was flax.  This one crop meant most for the physical well-being of the family, and after food, came first.  Mrs. McIver remembers with joy the pretty blue flowers of the flax.  When it was ready, she helped pull the flax plants from the ground.  The stems lay on the ground all winter until the pith was rotten.  After the centers rotted, the flax was shocked and then they had a flax-pulling.  The neighbors came and everyone hacked.  The process was long and it took many hours to spin it into thread.  After it was spun, it was spooled and warped, then woven.  In the first year of their coming, Martha met Benjamin Franklin McIver, whom she married when she was nineteen.  Her wedding present was enough thread to weave twenty-five yards of linen.  In their first year together she wove the twenty-five yards of linen and made two sheets, two tablecloths, and four towels.  There were countless tasks for the women in the pioneer home.  They managed the house, which included making candles, preserving fruit, making bed clothes and clothing for the family, cooking, which was mostly done at the fireplace, and washing, usually done at the spring, far from the house.  The woman of the house also milked the cow, tended to the pigs, and usually a large garden.  Mrs. McIver made the jeans that the men wore and the linsey dresses worn by the girls.  The blue pot which contained dye was often in use.  The jeans were made of cotton chain with a wool filling.  The last weaving Mrs. McIver did was a carpet which she did about fifty years ago.  Mr. McIvers was never very strong and made a living driving ox teams.  He hauled timber and anything else which brought them the small amount of money it took to live.  There were seven children born to them - Willy, Marion, Kenneth, Silver, Dan, Lillian, and Charlie.  There was a new baby often in the early homes, and Mrs. McIver has little tolerance for the new fangled ideas about birth.  She proudly assets that she had a doctor only once at her childrens' births and then only because she couldn't find a woman to help her.  She remembers two midwives in the district that were more in demand than a doctor.  She herself delivered many babies.  She helped deliver her own daughter-in-law, with whom she now resides.  Thirty-six years ago, her grandson, Charlie McIver, couldn't get a doctor for his wife.  It was the Fourth of July and the Paoli doctors were all away.  She delivered her great grand-daughter.  This was just after her sixty-seventh birthday.  There are many things one thinks when talking to Grandma McIver.  As she sits, spacing her words with the gentle creak of the rocker, there are many thoughts, but none of the present.  A coy bob of the neat gray head and a little laugh takes you far from the things of today.  The car, the radio, the movies, and the atomic bomb are gone.  Instead, there's a house and laughter and people - a people woven from the fabric of their own making - a homespun folk."

 

She died on March 2, 1952 at the age of 105 in Orange, Indiana, United States.  An obituary (newspaper and date unknown) found in the bible of Clarissa Gass Sparks, now owned by Richard Moore, reported "Orange County's oldest citizen Mrs. Martha McIver died Sunday morning at the age of 105 years and 11 months.  A native of Tompkinsville, Ky., Mrs. McIver came to Orange County at the age of eighteen on Feb.1, 1865.

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.

C. W. Parks. Interment was in the Ames cemetery with Ritter & Son as funeral directors."  The same issue reported "William Volney Baxter was born October 6, 1886 near French Lick, Indiana.  He was the son of William and Elizabeth Case Baxter.  He passed away in Palm Beach, Florida November 21, 1944 at the age of 56.  One sister, Grace Sanders, and one brother, Everett, preceded him in death.  He leaves four brothers and two sisters, Joe and Mrs. Mabel King of French Lick; Morton of Franklin, Ind.; Arthur of Palm Beach, Florida; Mrs. Pearle Eastman of Los Angeles, Calif. and Silver a prisoner of the Japanese in the Philippine Islands.  He was married to Mabel Seybold in 1913 and being a happy, cheerful father with a good mother, they made a happy home.

He was buried at Ames Chapel Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

126.  Luther John Hagan1,3–4,8–9,15,17,22,28,34 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 various. 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 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 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. Luther 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 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 Cope1,3,5,8–9,14–15,17–18,22,28, 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.

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 McDonald1,3,8,28,37, daughter of John J.

He loved the church and Sunday School services wherever he might be.  Moreover, he loved the truth not for policy's sake, not because it might be expedient, not because implanted in his heart, there was ingrained in his soul a love for higher things: the love for that which is true, for that which was genuine.  Truly, a life is not measured by its length of days, but by human heart throbs, transcendent purposes and noble deeds. Measured by such a standard, his was a long life, well rounded and mature.  Of his immediate family the father, mother, and one brother, Winfred, survive, with whom his memory will abide a benediction and a blessing, and to whom every friend and acquaintance extend their deepest sympathy.  To you who mourn, the memory of the life and kindly deeds of Clarence is yours to cherish and to emulate.  He has left behind him a tribute to the young men of his acquaintance, to his family and to his friends - that rich heritage of a good name, a dutiful son and brother, and a life spent in obedience to HIM who is the Master of our destiny. And as we soon shall stand about the open grave we may well say 'We can follow no further.'  Funeral services were held at the Paoli M. E. Church at 2 o'clock p.m. Thursday, June 16, by Rev. Guy Sounders assisted by Rev. Bassett of Paoli and Rev. George Dalrymple, of Corydon.  Interment in Paoli Community cemetery."
