There are four persons who have contributed to this effort that I wish to acknowledge. 
First is my wife, Lou Ella Johnson Martin, who read every page and made many 
valuable suggestions. She also assisted greatly with research in Indiana. And she didn't 
complain when she got poison ivy when we made a census of the Heady Cemetery in 
Fishers, Indiana, much. Then she encouraged me to write the book and badgered me to 
get to work when I slacked off. 



o 



Second, there are two persons that have contributed their research on two of the branches 
that makes those chapters more complete. The first of these is Sheryl Johnson of Wichita, 
Kansas, who provided information about descendants of Alfred Tennyson and Martha 
[Castetter] Heady. The second is Phillip Castor of Noblesville, Indiana, who provided 
information about descendants of Peter and Molly Castetter. References to information 
provided by these persons will be indicated in the end notes. Last, is Don Taylor who 
designed the cover. 

My sincere thanks to these four for their help.

Preface 



The name Heady is not well known. Every surname dictionary found in several libraries 
has been searched and the name Heady was not listed. Some persons believe it is 
derived from another name, possibly Hedden. However, a number of instances have 
been found where a person is listed as Heady by repeated references recorded by others. 
Seldom is the name Hedden used in these references. But, as is true with other names, 
the person recording the name Heady was not always consistent. It has been recorded 
as Heady, Headdy, and Heddy, sometimes in the same document. It is possible that 
Heady, Hedden, Hoddy, and other similar names derive from an earlier name that had 
a similar sound. 

The earliest Heady in America to whom a reference has been found is a Richard Heady 
who came to Virginia in 1654.' There was only one reference to him. Some of the 
Headys in the South may be descended from him, but I am not avvare of any research in 
this direction. Then there is a Thomas Heady, mariner, who bought land in Accomac 
County, Virginia, circa 1675.' In the same time frame, 1675, a John Heady living in 
Yonkers, New York, submitted a petition to the local government on behalf of the 
persons in his community.' Again, I am not aware of any connection between these 
Headys and later Headys. 

There is evidence of single Heady families living in Northern New Jersey and 
Connecticutt during colonial times. During the Revolution, Headys from Connecticutt, 
New Jersey, New York, and North Carolina saw service, although only one person from 
each state has been found in the service records. Whether these Heady families are 
related in any way is not known to me. 

The best researched Heady family is that of a Thomas Heady who married a Rebecca 
Stilwell in New Jersey in 1749.^ These two spawned a number of Heady clans in 
Kentucky, Indiana, and points west. Pat Heady Green published a newsletter from 
November 1971 to October 1974 of the Heady families descended from this couple. 
This, and another article she wrote entitled "Heady Information",' is the most 
information you will find compiled about Headys. The "Heady Information" article 
includes information about Heady families that lived in Hamilton County, Indiana. She 
admitted that it was just a beginning and there was much yet to learn. 

My grandfather, James Lewis Heady, was born in Hamilton County, Indiana, in 1873. 
Doing research on my family eventually resulted in my discovering these two works of 

ix 



Preface 



Pat Heady Green. I have learned considerably more about the Headys in Hamilton 
County than was in these works. The Headys of Hamilton County, Indiana, will be the 
subject of this book, which will cover four generations, basically the time period of 1820 
to 1900. This time period is chosen because 1820 was about when white families began 
settling Hamilton County and 1900 is about when my grandfather left for the West. 

It is common practice in family histories to carry related families (those of married 
daughters) only one generation. This practice will be followed in most cases. However, 
there are a few cases where for various reasons more than one generation is included. 
All surnames that are associated with the Headys of Hamilton County are included in the 
index. Those that married second generation, or are prominent, include Castetter, Eller, 
Hardesty, Humble, Lewis, Redwine, Snodgrass, Tharp, Tucker, and Verts. 

While I believe this is a significant addition to the compiled knowledge of this family, 
it is far from complete. My main interest in the beginning was to research my maternal 
grandfather and his ancestors. Once involved, I decided to learn what I reasonably could 
about the other Headys in Hamilton County. Some proved easier to research than others. 
Also, I would be the last to say there is no room for improvement. Hopefully, others 
with better information will correct any errors and will add to what is here. 

A number of sources have been consulted in preparing this history. The work of Pat 
Heady Green has already been mentioned. Three sources that have been heavily utilized 
are The Genealogical Society of Utah for county records, The National Archives for 
census and Civil War Pension information, and newspapers of the period for vital and 
human interest information. The newspaper information was obtained at the Indiana State 
Library during a two month research trip to Indiana. In addition to the sources already 
mentioned there are four other sources utilized. First is a record of the recollections of 
Martha Heady as recorded by her grand daughter, Freeda George. This record is 
reproduced in Appendix II. Second is a survey of two cemeteries that are the final resting 
place for a number of James and Dorotha Heady 's descendants. The results of these 
surveys are presented in Appendix III. The third source utilized is court records. Court 
houses in Hamilton County and Howard County, Indiana, and Neosho County, Kansas, 
were visited to obtain records not microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah. 
Finally, four local libraries deserve mention. The Noblesville-Southeastern Library, the 
Kokomo Public Library, and the Tipton County Library have excellent collections 
pertaining to their area. The fourth local library, the Allen County Library, is renowned 
for its geanealogical collection and had periodicals from many Indiana historical societies. 

The source of the facts presented is shown through endnotes with two exceptions. The 
exceptions are the information contained in Appendixes II and III. Where information 
comes from these sources, that fact will be noted in the body of the story and by end 
notes. The reader can refer to the appropriate appendix for the information. In some 
cases, there may be sources with conflicting information about a fact. When this occurs, 



Preface 



XI 



a discussion of the conflicting information will be found in an end note. Each reference 
is indicated by a superscripted number. These references will be found preceding the 
Appendices in Notes and References. Since many references use the same source (such 
as Hamilton County, Indiana, Marriage Records), these references use an abbreviated 
form. The complete reference is in a preamble to the end notes in Notes and References. 

I believe in documenting sources. So the reader may find more references than desired. 
However, I have found in my own family that "facts" are not always what we think. For 
example, my grandfather placed the birth of my grandmother (in a document after her 
death) as Wichita, Kansas. Census data shows her family lived in Cowley County, 
Kansas. Wichita may be where he met her. So if I show something different from what 
you believe to be correct, the documentation will show where I got the information. 
Which is not to say my source is necessarily the last word on the subject. 

The text following the Introduction is divided into thirteen chapters and three appendixes. 
The first chapter is about the progenitors. James and Dorotha Heady. They had eleven 
children, so each of the next eleven chapters is dedicated to a child and his or her 
descendants. Chapter 13 is about the Castetter family, which was closely associated with 
the Headys during this period. Appendix I will summarize information about the families 
of Thomas Heady, Sr. , and Thomas Heady, Jr. , that is in 77?^ Heady Family Newsletter. 
The contents of Appendixes II and III have already been mentioned. 

An explanation is appropriate concerning the way families are presented. The record 
format will be used. Each generation will be indicated by a superscripted number. For 
example, the progenitor James* Heady has the superscript 1, as shown, and all his 
children will have the superscript 2. However, in a list of children, only the first child 
will have a superscript. Also, the first time a person is mentioned, their name will be 
bolded. Then, in a list of children, roman and arable numerals will be used. The roman 
numeral will be used to show the order of birth of a child in a family. Every child's 
name will be preceded by a roman numeral. Some children will also have an arable 
numeral in front of their name. This will signify that there will be a further discussion 
of that person and his or her family. In this case, only birth and marriage information 
will be shown for that person. Other information, including references will come later. 
For example, the family of John' and Abigail Smith would be shown as follows: 

Children of John and Abigail Smith are: 

2. i. John\, b. 15 Jan 1835; m. Elizabeth Jones. 

ii. Elizabeth, b. 27 Feb 1837, d. 10 Oct 1875; m. 10 Mar 1857 in Nowhere Co., 
Mystate, Alexander Martin, b. 20 Dec 1836, d. 31 May 1870. 



xii Preface 



Then when it comes time to tell about John', it will look like this: 

2. John" Smith (John'), was born 15 Jan 1835 in Nowhere County, Mystate, and ... 

Note that his father is shown in parentheses and italics after John^ Smith. His children 
would be followed by (John', John') when there is a section discussing them in some 
detail. 

This is my first book on genealogy. As in all efforts of this magnitude involving 
inexperience, errors can be expected. Considerable effort has been made to avoid errors, 
but some are sure to be present. Please address any suggestions, additions, or corrections 
to myself at the address shown in the copyright section. 



Introduction 



Following the revolutionary war, the territory between the Ohio and Mississippi rivers 
and south of the Great Lakes was ceded to the Federal Government by the colonies in 
the process of ratifying the Articles of Confederation. This territory was called the 
Northwest Territory. Eventually, the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, 
Wisconsin, and the part of Minnesota East of the Mississippi River were formed from 
this territory.* 

One of the first acts of Congress regarding these lands was establishment of a new 
system to survey and describe property.^ This was a rectangular system that used a 
horizontal base line and a vertical meridian to provide axes to measure from. Then every 
six miles north and south of the base line, additional horizontal lines were established. 
These were called Township lines. Every six miles east and west of the meridian, 
additional vertical lines were established. These were called Range lines. These Township 
and Range lines divided the surveyed land into six mile by six mile squares. Then these 
six by six squares were further divided into thirty six tracts called sections. These 
sections were one mile square, or 640 acres. 

When a survey was complete, the land was sold through a land office. Entire sections 
could be purchased, or parts of a section. Sections were divided into quarter sections of 
160 acres and quarter sections were further divided into tracts of a quarter of a quarter 
section, or 40 acres. The first land sold by this method was in Ohio. By the early 1800s, 
when land in Indiana Territory opened for settlement, the sale of land by this system had 
become routine. 

There were a number of U.S. land offices established in the Northwest Territory. The 
only ones that enter into this story will be those in Cincinnatti, Ohio; Jeffersonville, 
Indiana; and Brookville, Indiana (which was transferred to Indianapolis about 1825). The 
reason for discussing land and land offices is because these are among the best records 
available in Indiana and Ohio between 1800 and 1830. 

Census records can be quite valuable, but the 1800 and 1810 censuses for Ohio and 
Indiana are missing. Courthouse records can also be valuable, but they are only available 
after the county government is formed. In the parts of Ohio and Indiana in which this 
story takes part, between 1800 and 1830 the governments were young and the records 
reflect that youth. One other record collection group is religions. But in this part of the 
United States, the preachers were mostly itinerant and their records are hard to find, if

Introduction 



they exist. The one exception to this latter statement is the Quakers. But the Headys in 
Indiana were not Quakers, with one minor exception . 

This story begins about 1820 and ends about 1900. During this time great changes took 
place in Indiana. One good source of information about this period is INDIANA From 
Frontier to Industrial Commonwealth.^ The title tells a lot about the changes that took 
place during the period covered. 

In 1820, Indiana was on the frontier. It is difficult for us in the late twentieth century to 
appreciate what that means. When we leave one place and go to another, we can call a 
mover to pack our belongings and transport them to another place. The new location will 
have a house for us to move into and a shopping center within reasonable distance to buy 
our food, clothes, and other necessities. We will travel over paved roads at 25, 45, or 
65 miles per hour. If the roads are the least bit rough, we are unhappy. So we really 
can't appreciate what frontier life was like. 

Those ancestors of ours who first settled in a newly opened territory had to provide 
everything for themselves, including the road used to get there. I won't go into great 
detail because others have done the job very well. But consider that a large portion of 
the land settled during this period was forest. If there was a path from where you were 
to where you wanted to go, it was probably wide enough for a person on foot, or 
possibly a horse. If wagons were involved, it could be necessary to widen the path by 
cutting down underbrush and possibly trees. This makes for slow going. Depending on 
the time of year and weather conditions, the trail could be muddy. This would further 
impede travel. 

Then when they arrived at their new home, there would be no house. The first thing to 
do would be to begin to clear the land, plant, and build a log house. This was no small 
chore. Trees had to be felled. For a log cabin the trees were stripped of their branches, 
and moved into place. This was usually a cooperative effort among several families. 
Often, the husband would go ahead and make rudimentary preparations. Then he would 
go back and bring the family to the new home. A good description of this process is 
given by Augustus Finch Shirts in his history of Hamilton County, Indiana.' 

On the frontier, the pioneers had to be self sufficient. They grew their own food or got 
it by hunting and fishing. They made their own cloth and sewed their clothes from it. 
Leather made from the hides of deer and other animals was used for clothing and shoes. 
They were their own doctors to a great degree. As time passed, the areas became more 
densely settled and communities and towns developed. More goods became available and 
a market developed for what was produced. But the increased population combined with 
with poor sanitation resulted in epidemics. There was a high degree of mortality, 
particularly among infants, as will be seen. 



Introduction 



After the Revolutionary War, the land west of the Ohio was largely Indian territory. 
Then as the Federal Government obtained the land from the Indians, many persons came 
West in search of a better future. Ohio was rapidly settled and became a state in 1803.'" 
That part of what is now Indiana that is along the Ohio river was also being settled 
during this time and by 1816 there were sufficient residents in the southern third of that 
part of the territory for Indiana to become a state." 

Until 1818, most of the northern part of Indiana belonged to the Indians. In that year, 
the United States concluded a treaty with the Indians and obtained a large part of this 
territory from them. Next the land was surveyed and divided into sections for sale. In 
1821, the surveying was complete and a land office was opened in Brookville, Indiana. 
Later this land office was moved to Indianapolis. The process of settlement began as 
settlers and speculators rapidly bought up the land. 

Actually, there were a number of squatters on the land before it was opened for sale. 
A few Indian traders were in the territory before 1818. Others began settling the territory 
between 1818 and 1821 when the land was officially opened for sale. One account of 
these early traders and squatters is given by Augustus Finch Shirts. He was a descendant 
of two of the early settlers. In his book he names a number of these early settlers. A 
history of Hamilton County written in 1880 also names some of the early settlers.'^ 
Another source of information about the early settlers of this area is the 1820 U.S. 
census for Indiana.'-' In 1820, county governments had not yet been formed by Indiana 
in the New Purchase (as land purchased from the Indians in 1818 was called). For census 
purposes, two counties, Delaware and Wabash, were defined. What ultimately became 
Hamilton County was in the White River Parish of Delaware County. The earliest settlers 
can be determined by comparing names in this census with those who ultimately pur- 
chased land from the Federal government. Among those was a Jeams Heady family. 

The map on the following page (Figure 2) shows Indiana Counties in 1820 and present. 
Hamilton County is in the center of the state where the word "Delaware" is. Figure 3 is 
a map of Hamilton County in about 1880. This county map is not to scale and is not 
detailed. It shows the Townships, the White River, Noblesville (the county seat). Fishers, 
and the Heady Cemetery. The Headys lived in the southern part of the county in 
Delaware Township in the vicinity of the Heady Cemetery (the Heady Cemetery is 
discussed in Appendix III). The town of Fishers today is much larger than in 1880 and 
includes most of the property the Headys owned.

James and Do rot ha Heady 



This is the history of the family of James and Dorotha Heady that moved into what 
became Delaware Township, Hamilton County, Indiana, m the early 1820s. James and 
Dorotha Heady had a large family. There were eleven children in this family at the time 
of James' death in 1827, eight sons and three daughters. This part of Indiana was being 
opened for settlement and the Heady family were among the first settlers. Although 
James Heady died in 1827, his family participated in the growth of Delaware Township 
in the southern part of Hamilton county. But in 1972, there was not a family with the 
name Heady in Hamilton County.''* 

The Heady Family Newsletter states that James Heady is the son of Thomas Heady, Jr. , 
who died in Nelson County, Kentucky, in 1811.'"^ The Newsletter does not show how this 
relationship was determined. I have attempted to confirm this relationship and believe 
that it is correct. The evidence I have found will be discussed in the following pages. 
Appendix I summarizes what the Heady Newsletter provides about the history of the 
Thomas Heady, Sr. and Thomas Heady, Jr., families. 

The information I have found and that presented by The Heady Family Newsletter may 
not meet the rigorous test of evidence for conclusively showing a relationship. It is 
presented for those who would care to further investigate this family's antecedents. This 
history deals with persons living in Hamilton County, Indiana, in 1820 and their 
descendants. Information concerning these relationships are more readily available. 

James' Heady was born between 1775 and 1779 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania.'* He 
died before 7 June 1827 in Hamilton County, Indiana, when his estate was entered into 
probate. He was part of the Thomas Heady, Jr. family that settled in Nelson County, 
Kentucky about 1790. Several children from this family moved first to Ohio and then to 
Indiana, or directly to Indiana. There is circumstantial evidence to support the belief that 
the James Heady that moved to Hamilton County, Indiana, was from this family. 

Thomas Heady, Jr., who followed his father to Kentucky from Pennsylvania in 1792 had 
seven sons.'"' They can all be accounted for except James and Elias. Thomas Heady, Jr., 
in his 181 1 will states that neither James nor Elias are to receive anything because he has 



Chapter 1 James and Dorotha Heady 



already given them all that he intends to."^ Later in the will he instructs "that they (Jacob, 
Stilwell, and Elisha) shall pay unto my son James Heady for the improvements he made 
on the place that my son Elijah now lives on. " From this it is concluded that James and 
Elias have left home. 

The Nelson County, Kentucky, tax roils were examined for evidence of James Heady, 
son of Thomas Heady, Jr. The 1800 Nelson County tax roll includes only one James 
Heady, the son of Thomas, Sr.'' In 1802, there is a James Heady, son of Thomas Heady, 
Jr. , as well as the earlier James Heady. There are also two James Headys on the 1 803 
tax roll. The one there in 1800 and a second James Heady. Although, the second one is 
not identified as "son of Thomas, Jr.," it is assumed he is that person. Then in 1804 the 
second James Heady is not on the Nelson County, Kentucky tax roll. From this and the 
tenor of the will, it is assumed that James Heady, son of Thomas, Jr., has left the state. 
Although the evidence may not be conclusive, in this history it will be accepted that the 
James Heady that settled in Hamilton County, Indiana is the son of Thomas Heady, Jr. 
of Nelson County, Kentucky. Additional evidence is presented in the following 
paragraphs, including how he got to Hamilton County, Indiana. 

A James Heady married a Dolly Henry in Hamilton County, Ohio, in November, 1801.'° 
Martha [Castetter] Heady, wife of Alfred Tennyson Heady, identifies the wife of James 
Heady, son of Thomas Heady, Jr., as Dorothy Harvey (see Appendix II). The name 
Henry and Harvey (sometimes spelled Hervey) can be mistaken in the old handwriting 
and Dolly is a nick name for Dorothy. So Dolly Henry could be Dorothy Harvey. 
(Dorotha and Dorothy are used at different times in referring to James wife. My mother 
was named Dorotha at birth, but later used Dorothy. Other descendants of James and 
Dorotha were apparently named Dorotha, so Dorotha will be used as her name. But if 
the document cited uses Dorothy, the name will be shown as it appears in the document.) 
The 1850 census shows Dorothy Heady's age as 64. In 1860, her age is shown as 73. 
So in 1801, she would have been less than 16, under age for marrying in many 
communities. But Cincinnati was "Gretna Green" (no questions asked). This could 
explain their marriage there and then James Heady being in Nelson County in 1802. No 
record of a marriage of James and Dorothy in Kentucky has been found. 

Then a James Heady made a first installment on 160 acres of land in Butler County, 
Ohio, 11 Feb 1805.^' This land was never recorded in James Heady's name. Instead, it 
was assigned to Sam'l Dick and was patented 18 Jun 1812.^^ An attempt was made to 
find taxes being paid on land in Butler County, Ohio, by James Heady. But the tax 
records available on microfilm for Butler County start in 1816. There was a census taken 
in Butler County, Ohio, in 1807, and a male of 21 years of age or older named James 
Heady was recorded. ■^"^ 

I believe that this is our James Heady and that he and his family left Nelson County, 
Kentucky, about 1804 and moved to Butler County, Ohio. He used money and or 



Chapter 7 James and Dorotha Heady 



equipment his father gave him to get started there. He would have cleared land, built a 
log cabin, and planted crops. Then in 1812. he sold his Butler, Ohio, property and began 
a move to Indiana. Also, during this time, several children were born. In the 1850 and 
1860 censuses for Hamilton County, Indiana, the birth place of some of the known sons 
of James and Dorotha Heady is shown as Ohio. 

On 1 Oct 1814, a James Heady of Washington County, Indiana Territory, made a first 
installment on 160 acres of land at the Jeffersonville land office.-^ This land was in what 
became Jackson County, Indiana, in 1816, but was part of Washmgton County in 1814. 
The patent was never obtained by James Heady on this property, although all the 
payments were made by him.-'' Instead, the final papers were assigned to Jesse Dickson 
who was given the patent. The patent was issued m 1819. A Thomas Heady also bought 
land at the JeflFersonville land office in 1814.-^ He bought his land in partnership with a 
Seth Goodwin. This Thomas Heady is undoubtedly the Thomas Heady who married 
Rebecca Goodwin and who later was in Monroe and Putnam Counties, Indiana. He is 
reputed to be a son of Thomas Heady, Jr. of Nelson County, Kentucky and would be the 
brother of James Heady. '^ 

A James Heady was accused of being a horse thief in Jackson County, Indiana, in 1816. 
But he was subsequently acquitted by a jury.^* There are not a lot of James Headys in 
the world, so the land owner and the alleged horse thief are probably the same person. 
James did have a son named James, but he was only ten at the time. There is also a 
record of a James Heady marrying a Polly Beyher in Harrison County, Indiana, in 
1816.-' This could not be our James Heady because he required consent to marry. He 
cannot be James, Sr.'s son because James, Jr. is only ten years old. 

The first available U.S. census for Indiana is the 1820 census. In this census there are 
two James Headys enumerated, one in Jackson County and one in Delaware county, 
White River Parish, (for census purposes, the New Purchase was divided into two 
counties, Delaware and Wabash). These two census records are interesting because they 
are almost identical. The following table shows them.'"'

10 Chapter 1 James and Dorotha Heady 



It is assumed that these are the same family and that James was in the New Purchase, 
probably with some of his sons, preparing their new home. Dorotha and the rest of the 
family were in Jackson County. But why should the James Heady family in Jackson 
County be the same as the one in Delaware county? The first clue is the composition of 
the families. Both have the same number of males and females. Only the age distribution 
is difi'erent, which can occur when two different persons are reporting. When the census 
takers came around, both segments of the family gave information as they knew it. The 
Jeams Heady (sic) in the 1820 U.S. census for Delaware County, White River parish, 
was listed on the same page as William Conner and Charles Lacey, who were known to 
be in the part of Delaware County that became Hamilton County. 

A second census was performed in the fall of 1820 by Indiana.-^' This census included 
only males over 21. The returns have been found for only some of the counties. Those 
for Jackson County are available, but not those for Delaware County. James Heady was 
not in the state's Jackson County census, but Jesse Dickson, who had been assigned the 
land James' had entered in 1814, was. From this it is concluded that James' Heady had 
left Jackson County to select and prepare a home in the New Purchase, which is what 
the land obtained from the Indians in 1818 was called. 

In summary, it is proposed that the above facts support the contention that the James 
Heady in Hamilton County, Indiana, in the early 1820s is the son of Thomas Heady, Jr., 
of Nelson County, Kentucky. That he moved to Butler County, Ohio, about 1804 and 
bought land in 1805. Then, between 1812 and 1814, he and his family moved to Indiana. 
They settled on land he entered in what is now Jackson County, Indiana. Shortly after 
he entered his land, his brother Thomas also bought land close by. Then about 1820, 
James Heady and his family moved again, this time to what became Hamilton County, 
Indiana, where this story begins. 

The composition of the family of James and Dorotha Heady is known from two 
documents in the Hamilton County Courthouse files. First is the probate record of James 
Heady. On 11 June 1827, Dorothy Heady is named administratrix of the estate of James 
Heady."'^ In this record, she is identified as the widow. Then in 1866, in the settlement 
of the estate of Dorotha Heady, the eleven children of Dorotha Heady are named."' 
More will be said about these documents later. The children named in the settlement of 
Dorotha's estate are: Lewis, James, Mark, Vincent, Charles, Thomas, Andrew Jackson, 
Perry, Elizabeth, Mary, and Sarah Ann. It is not possible to establish exactly the order 
of birth or the place of birth of each child. But from the facts that are known some 
conclusions have been drawn, which will be discussed. 

In the 1850 census for Hamilton County, Indiana, the birth place of James, Vincent, and 
Charles Heady are shown as Ohio.''"' These children of James and Dorotha were born in 
1814 or earlier according to census, cemetery, or family sources. Lewis, Elizabeth, and 
Mark are dead by 1850 when birthplace is shown on the census. But there is evidence 



Chapter 1 James and Dorotha Heady 11 



that they too were born before 1814. The Kentucky tax records discussed above indicate 
that Lewis could have been born in Kentucky.'' Mark and Elizabeth are assumed to have 
been born in Ohio because they were born before 1814, but after 1804 (when James, son 
of Thomas, Jr., is not on the Kentucky tax records). The other children of James and 
Dorotha, who were born after 1814, are all shown in censuses to have been born in 
Indiana. From this it is concluded that James and Dorotha lived in Ohio prior to 1814 
and at least as early as 1807, which is when James- was born. 

There is evidence of a James Heady in Hamilton County, Indiana, in the early 1820s, 
besides the census. The 1880 History of Hamilton County, Indiana shows a James 
Headdy (sic) as one of 36 Petit jurors in August, 1823.'^ In another place, this history 
says he came in late 1825." The basis for this date is not given and it is believed that 
none of the arrival dates in this history are accurate. Many of the arrival dates are the 
same as the date that a person entered land at the Brookville (later Indianapolis) land 
office. Then, as previously stated, on 11 June 1827, Dorothy Heady, widow, is 
designated administratrix of James Heady deceased. 

It is interesting that James Heady never entered the land he was living on in Hamilton 
County, Indiana, at the Brookville land office. After his death, his wife and three of his 
sons all entered land.'* This was the third tract of virgin land that James Heady had 
settled. He must have been very good at it. One wonders why he moved so frequently. 
Maybe he liked to be on the frontier. When he died, an inventory was taken of his 
personal property. The result of that inventory is shown in the table on the following 
page.'^ Note that it is what you would expect of a pioneer. 

A sale was held of the personal property of James Heady, deceased, that was reported 
by Dorothy Heady on 8 Jul 1827.'*° At that sale, among others were Dorothy Heady, 
Lewis Heady, James Heady, William Conner, and George Medsker. Lewis Heady's 
name is spelled several different ways, but it is assumed they are all one person. 

James' Heady was one of those early pioneers who carved their home out of the 
wilderness. What we know about him is mostly from inference. It is believed that he was 
born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, about the time of the American Revolution. This 
was in Southwestern Pennsylvania, and had only recently been settled by white man. 
That he was born in Fayette County is inferred from the fact that his father owned land 
there and was recorded in the 1790 census. In 1792 his father moved to Nelson County, 
Kentucky, which is near Louisville. Kentucky became a state in 1792, but Nelson County 
was still on the frontier. We know that James was industrious because, as previously 
stated, his father's will provides that he is to be reimbursed for improvements on his 
father's land.

Chapter 1 James and Dorotha Heady 13 



James Heady was independent and apparently enjoyed living on the frontier. This is 
indicated by the fact that he left home about 1804 to obtain land in western Ohio, which 
had recently been opened for settlement. Then he moved two more times to newly 
opened land. He reminds me of a Blue Grass tune about a man who keeps moving 
because "he cannot abide the sound of his neighbor's ax." He probably did not have a 
formal education but he was well versed in the requirements for living in the wilderness. 
Had he not died in 1827, this story might be about some place in Illinois or further West. 

In 1820, James and Dorotha had eight children, six boys and two girls. In the next six 
years, they had three more, two boys and a girl. There may have been another boy alive 
in 1820 that did not live to have a family. As previously stated the 1820 U.S. census 
shows seven males in addition to the head of household. The Eleven children that will 
be discussed in this book are those that were living in Hamilton County in 1830 and 
following years. These are all named in the settlement of the estate of Dorotha Heady 
on 3 Jan 1866. That Dorotha Heady is James Heady's wife is proven by her being named 
administratrix of James' estate 7 Jun 1827.'*' As previously discussed, the court clerk 
called her the widow of James Heady. 

The children of James and Dorotha Heady are as follows. Their birth dates were 
determined as discussed in the chapters devoted to each child: 

2 i. Lewis\ b. ca. 1803; m. Charity Hardesty. 

3 ii. Elizabeth, b. ca. 1805; m. Frederick Redwine. 

4 iii. James, b. 30 Jul 1807; m. Polly Snodgrass. 

5 v. Vincent, b. 10 May 181 1; m. (1) Polly Ann Richardson, (2) Sarah Castetter. 

6 iv. Mark, b. 12 Dec. 1812; m. Martha Tharp. 

7 vi. Charles, b. ca. 1813; m. Bulin (Beulah?) Tucker. 

8 vii. Mary, b. 18 Oct 1815, m. David Redwine. 

9 viii. Thomas, b. 29 Nov. 1817; m. Susan Vert. 

10 ix. Andrew Jackson, b. 13 Nov 1821. 

11 X. Sarah Ann, b. ca. 1823; m. Henry Eller. 

12 xi. Perry, b. 8 Mar 1826; m. Elizabeth Castetter. 



14 Chapter 1 James and Dorotha Heady 



The children of Dorotha Heady are identified in the proof of heirship and order of 
distribution for Dorotha Heady's estate that was conducted on Wednesday, 3 January 
1866, in the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas. The Charles Heady giving 
evidence in the hearing is Charles Wesley Heady, executor and son of James' Heady. It 
reads, in part, (punctuation and spelling is as found in the document):'*^ 

Comes now into open Court Charles Heady and makes proof of heirship by his own oath 
that James Heady Andrew J. Heady Polly Redwine and Sallie Ann Eller are the living 
children of the decedent That Sarah Castetter Fanny J. Heady Joseph P. Heady William 
W. Heady Isaac Heady Polly Ann Heady and Amanda Heady and Hannah McDaniel 
deceased are the children of Vincent Heady deceased who was a son of the decedent 
Doritha Heady That Polly Ann McDaniel and Vincent McDaniel and one other name 
unknown are the children of Hannah McDaniel deceased Who was a daughter of Vincent 
Heady deceased who was a son of the deceased Doritha Heady That Melinda Lewis Ann 
Brandon who has deceased her child also dead leaving David Brandon as her heir Doritha 
Heady John W. Heady who has deceased since the death of the decedent Doritha Heady 
and who is represented by N. Chapman administrator James Franklin Heady and 
Angeline Heady are the children of Mark Heady deceased who was a son of the deceased 
Dorotha Heady That Jane McKnabb Calvin Heady Harriet Duke George Heady and 
Mahala Hollingsworth are the children of Lewis Heady deceased who was a son of the 
decedent Dorothe Heady That America Rooker Julia anna Heady and Malinda Heady are 
the children of Thomas Heady deceased who was a son of the decedent Dorotha Heady 
That Caroline Coppic who has deceased leaving her husband John Coppic and Henry 
Coppic And Joseph H Coppic her children as her heirs and Lucretia Castetter are the 
children of Betsy Redwine deceased who was a daughter of the decedent Dorotha Heady 
That Perry Heady deceased was a son of the decedent Daretha Heady and who is 
represented by Jacob Castetter his administrator That Nancy Ann Fauscett is a daughter 
of Charles Heady deceased who was a son of the decedent Dorotha Heady And that 
these are the heirs and the only heirs of the deceased. 

It would make reading and understanding better had the court clerk been more generous 
with commas and periods. Also, the spellings and capitalizations have been written as 
nearly as was found in the original. Never the less, the relationships of the various 
parties are easy to determine. This particular document has been quite helpful in 
resolving some questions that will affect the subsequent chapters. 

Dorotha Heady was born about 1786 in Massachusetts. Her birth date and place of birth 
are derived from the 1850 and 1860 U.S. censuses for Hamilton County, Indiana."'' 
According to Martha Castetter Heady (see Appendix II) she was born in Vermont, but 
her birthplace is probably Massachusetts, since Dorotha probably gave that information 
to the census taker herself. An examination of vital records for Massachusetts Counties 
available in the Los Angeles Public Library failed to find a Dorothy Harvey or similar 
name for the time of her birth. However, there were a number of Harvey s and Herveys. 



Chapter 1 James and Dorotha Heady 15 



She died before 15 Mar 1863 when her estate was entered into probate." Her place of 
burial, has not been found, nor has that of her husband, James. 

Dorotha Heady was an outstanding person. I believe the success of the Heady family in 
Hamilton county is largely due to her influence. Because the recorded information is 
sparse one needs to read between the lines of what is available, mostly census and court 
records. She was married when she was sixteen and went into the wilderness of Ohio 
with her husband to establish a home. Just when the land was cleared and they were 
getting settled, they moved to Indiana. This probably occurred in 1814. She would have 
given birth to four boys and a girl by 1814, who ranged from one to twelve in age. Then 
about 1820, they moved again to what became Hamilton County, Indiana. Now there 
were six boys and two girls. While establishing their home in Hamilton County another 
boy and girl were born. Then in 1826 the last child, a boy, Perry, was born, just a year 
before his father died. 

When James Heady died, Dorotha was left with ten or eleven children. Perry, was less 
than a year old. The oldest, Lewis, was probably 24 and indications are that he was 
married by this time and living in his own home. The next oldest son of James and 
Dorotha, James, Jr., was about 20. Both Lewis and James were at the sale of their 
father's property.'*' In the 1830 U.S. census for Hamilton Co., Indiana, two Heady 
families were listed, that of Lewis and that of Dorothy, In Dorothy's household, there 
are seven males and five females. All the females are accounted for except one that is 
under five years of age. As will be discussed in Chapter 3, this could be Caroline, the 
daughter of Elizabeth. 

In 1827, when James' died, he was 47-52 years old and Dorotha was about 41. Dorotha 
handled this situation quite well. She administered her late husbands estate in a fairly 
businesslike manner, although she didn't complete it in a timely fashion. She was called 
into court in 1851 because the estate was still open."* At this time the probate was closed, 
but no record of final settlement has been found. There never was a final settlement with 
a naming of heirs. There may not have been anything to distribute. However, in 
November, 1827, Dorothy Heady bought 80 acres of land at the Indianapolis land Office 
(the Wl/2 SEl/4 S35 T18N R4E) at a cost of 100 dollars. James, Mark, Vincent, and 
Mary's husband, David Redwine, also bought land from the government in the next 
seven years. 

The only mention of Dorotha in Hamilton County histories is that a meeting of the M. E. 
church was held at her house in 1829."^ Later we learn that there is a Heady school and 
a Heady Cemetery. One imagines that it was Dorotha who had these set aside. She raised 
her family and by 1850 they had all mamed, except Andrew. But Lewis, Elizabeth, and 
Mark were dead. 



16 Chapter 1 James and Dorotha Heady 



In 1850, we find Elizabeth's children and Dorotha's son Andrew living with Dorotha. 
As shown in the following summary of the census:

Dorotha Heady was an admirable person. She had a large family all but one of whom 
(Andrew Jackson) married and had families (Andrew did have a son who was successful 
and had a family). She took part in community activities. When members of the family 
had hardship, they could turn to her. She must have been a good business woman as 
well. When her husband died, his estate was valued at $349.50 but only $134 was 
realized in the estate sale, exclusive of what was bought by Dorotha and her sons Lewis 
and James. There may have been some money that would not have been counted in the 
inventory. The 80 acres of land she bought in 1827 cost 100 dollars, cash. When she 
died in 1863, there was $811 left to distribute among her heirs after the debts were paid. 
Many estates during this time were declared insolvent and nothing was left for the heirs. 



Chapter 2 



Lewis Heady 



2. Lewis- Heady (James') was born about 1802, probably in Kentucky. His birth date 
is determined using the 1820 U.S. census where one male in the James Heady 
enumeration is 16-18 years old. In later censuses, the other Heady males are all born 
after 1805 leaving only Lewis to be born 1802-1804. He died before December, 1840, 
when his estate was entered into probate. Lewis' wife was named Charity Hardesty."*^ 
Charity was born 27 Mar 1805 and died 18 Jul 1896.'^° A marriage record for Lewis and 
Charity has not been found, although marriage records for the counties around Hamilton 
County have been examined. Marriage records for Hamilton County are not available 
until 1833. Their marriage probably occurred in 1824, because their oldest child, Jane, 
was born about 1825. 

Little is recorded about Lewis. Although he is the oldest son, he never bought land in 
Hamilton County. He is enumerated in the 1830 U.S. census.'^' There are three males 
in his household and two females, as shown in the following table.

The male 0-5 would be Calvin, who would be two years old. The male 10-15 has not 
been identified, but he is too old to be a child of Lewis and Charity. The male 20-30 is 
Lewis. The female 5-10 would be Jane, who is 5, and the female 20-30 is Charity. 

Besides the census, there are three other records of Lewis in Hamilton county. In the 
first, he is indicted on 16 April 1827 for assault and battery with intent to commit 
murder. There were two counts to the indictment. Both took place on 15 March 1827 and 
involved William Price. Lewis Heady was accused of making an assault on William 



17 



18 



Chapter 2 Lewis Heady 



Price both times and "...in a rude and angry manner unlawfully did touch strike beat and 
wound and other wrongs to him the said William Price..." Lewis Heady pleaded not 
guilty to the charges as stated. The jury found him guilty of the second charge, which 
involved only assault. He was fined one dollar and sentenced to 20 days in jail. The 
Final Report, which was consulted, did not give Lewis Heady's side of the story, and 
time did not permit further research." 

Lewis bought a few items at the estate sale of his father's personal belongings in 1827." 
Then an L. W. Heady is recorded as voting in a Marion County election in 1831.'^'* In 
1832 Lewis Heady witnessed two real estate sales. These were between his mother and 
his brother James.'''' His name on the real estate transactions was Lewis W. Heady. So 
he is presumed to be the voter in the Marion County election. Another Hamilton County 
resident, Samuel Rooker, also voted in the Marion County election. No other record has 
been found of Lewis until December 1840 when his wife started a probate of his estate.'* 

The six children of Lewis and Charity Heady are: 

13 i. Jane\ h. ca. 1825; m. Stephen McNabb. 

14 ii. Calvin, b. 22 Mar 1829; m. (1) Nancy Ann Cardwell, (2) Diana Weaver. 

15 iii. Harriet, b. 1832; m. Andrew Jaciison Duke. 

iv. Sarah, b. ca. 1834. No information has been found about Sarah Heady after the 
1850 census. 

16 V. George W., b. ca. 1836; m. Edny Jane Ashbrook. 

17 vi. Mahala, b. 25 Apr 1838; m. James Oliver Hollingsworth. 

The U. S. census of 1840 for Hamilton county includes several Headys, but not Lewis. 
Charity is recorded with two males and three females, besides herself." Is Lewis dead 
at this time? The census presumably was performed during the summer. But the probate 
for Lewis was not entered until December.

Chapter 2 Lewis Heady 19 



This census presents another puzzle. Lewis and Charity had four daughters. The oldest 
is Jane who would be 15. But there isn't a female 10-15 or 15-20 in this enumeration. 
Where is she? As will be shown, there is a female 10-15 in James^ Heady's family that 
could not be James'. This could be Jane. 

The next record of Charity Heady's family is the 1850 U. S. census. In this census, there 
are two boys and three girls. This family is living in Marion County, Washington 
Township."^* Washington Township is the township below Delaware Township in 
Hamilton County. Jane has married Stephen McNabb by this time and is living with 
him. Charity and the other five children are in the Washington Township enumeration. 
A Reason Hardesty is living in a nearby dwelling. Is he related to Charity? Some time 
after the census, Charity and her children, except Jane, left Marion County. 

Additional information has been found concerning all members of this family except 
Sarah. She may have married, but no record has been found in Marion, Hamilton, or 
Howard County. Also, there was no mention of Sarah in Dorotha Heady's estate 
settlement. This could mean that she was dead without issue, or that she was not Lewis' 
child. She is included as a child of I^wis and Charity because the 1840 census shows a 
girl her age and the 1850 census shows her with the surname Heady. 

A Charity Heady is listed in a marriage license with a Nathan Comer in Howard 
County, Indiana, in 1851, but there was no return in the record.'*' In 1860 the only 
Nathan Comer of the right age is in Tipton County and married to a different person. 
Charity has not been found in the 1860 census, but she is in the 1870 and 1880 censuses. 
In 1870 she is living in Howard County with Oliver Holiingsworth, Mahala's husband. *° 
In 1880, she is living in Howard County with Andrew Duke, Harriet's husband, she is 
75 years old." In both the 1870 and 1880 census records she is listed with the surname 
Heady. 

On 12 October 1876, Charity Heady was received into membership of the Union 
Monthly Meeting of The Society of Friends (Quakers).*^ Her daughter Mahala and her 
family had previously joined. She remained a member in good standing until her death, 
which was recorded in the Union Monthly Meeting record book.*' 

At a meeting of the old settlers of Howard County on Saturday, October 4, 1879, County 
Auditor Moreland was requested to keep a record of old settlers of Howard County.^ 
Included in that record is "Charity Heady, born Mar 27, 1805, in North Carolina, age 
75, 60 years in Indiana, 20 years in Howard County, present residence, Taylor 
Township. "^^ Her birth date here and in the Quaker records agree, but her birth place 
does not. Based on census records, the North Carolina birth place is considered correct.

Chapter 2 Lewis Heady 



Charity Heady is buried in Crown Point Cemetery, 
Kokomo, IN, in the same plot as the Duke family. 
Her headstone, which reads "Mother Charity 
Heady," is shown to the right. This indicates to me 
that she was highly regarded by her children. 

Lewis Heady is presumed to be buried in the 
Heady Cemetery in Hamilton County, Indiana, but 
his grave site has not been found. Surveys of other 
early Hamilton County cemeteries did not contain 
his name. 

These were hard times and it is remarkable that 
these families did so well. When Lewis died in 
1840, he left little for his family. Charity had six 
children to care for, one was only two years old. 
She must have had help from family members, but 
we must admire her for what she accomplished. 
All her children, except Sarah married, had 
families, and were good citizens. 




Grave of Charity Heady, Crown 
Point Cemetery, Kokomo, Indiana 



13. Jane^ Heady {Lewis^, James') was born about 1825, probably in Hamilton County, 
Indiana,^* and died 1 Mar 1884 in Marion County, Indiana.*^ She married Stephen 
McNabb in Hamilton County, Indiana, 16 Apr 1846.** He was born 18 Jan 1820 in 
Kentucky, and died 22 Dec 1882 in Marion County, Indiana.*^ 

The only Stephen McNabb found in the 1850 U.S. census for Indiana is in Johnson Co.™ 
His family has the following composition:^'

Birth Place 


Stephen McNabb

KY 


Jane

James

William

The names, ages, and birthplaces of Stephen and Jane show that these are the same 
persons that are in Indianapolis in subsequent census records. But in 1860 neither James 
nor William are shown. They are presumed to have died before 1860. 



Chapter 2 Lewis Heady 21 



In the 1850 census Stephen's occupation is brickmolder. In the 1860 census his 
occupation is master bnckmaker.^- In 1870 he is a baggage master. From the value of 
real estate he has in each census, he must have been reasonably successful.

be Noah and Anna Cardwell. Anna Cardwell died 7 Oct 1839 and is buried in McKay 
Cemetery, Hamilton County, Indiana.*^ Noah Cardwell was 75 years old and living with 
James Heady in 1870. His death date and burial have not been found. 

The first record found of Nancy Ann Cardwell is in the 1850 census where she is 
enumerated with James Heady (see Chapter 4). In the 1860 U.S. Population Census, 
Calvin Heady, Nancy, and their children are in Delaware Township, Hamilton County.*-^ 
Calvin Heady's occupation is farmer. The 1860 Agricultural Census shows he has 40 
acres under cultivation, but there is no evidence in recorded deeds that he owned land. 
He continued living in Hamilton County until sometime after 1870, because he is found 
in the 1870 census.** In 1870 he still did not own land, but his occupation was farmer.

Between 1870 and 1880 this family moved to Howard County, Indiana, as did the Calvin 
Heady family. George and Edny Jane must have died before 1880. In the 1880 census 
they are not found and their children are each living with a different family. No land

Chapter 2 Lewis Heady 27 



in the 1880 census and previously discussed. Oliver was living in Harrison Township, 
Howard County, with George P. Pitzer.'^^ He was eleven years old. His relationship to 
George Pitzer was listed as laborer and his occupation was farm laborer. As shown 
above, Oliver's cousin. Noah Heady married Myrtle Pitzer. No attempt has been made 
to determine if a relationship exists between Myrtle Pitzer and George Pitzer. 

On 16 March 1893 Oliver Clinton Heady and Oda Mae Hanna were married in Howard 
County, Indiana. '^'^ Oda Mae Hanna was born in May 1876 on a farm southwest of 
Kokomo on the Alto road. She was the daughter of Thomas J. and Louisa [Moore] 
Hanna. '^' She died 30 June 1938 on a farm near Cassville, Indiana. '^° 

Nothing has been found about Oliver Clinton Heady between the 1880 census and his 
marriage to Oda Mae. But he must have been industrious, because in 1894 he bought 
several lots in Alto. Sometime after their marriage, they moved to Carroll County where 
they appear in the 1900 U.S. census.'"^' Oliver lists his occupation as farmer. But he soon 
returned to Howard County and started a livery business. He was successful at this 
business and a short biography about him is included in the Jackson Morrow History of 
Howard County. He continued the livery business until about 1926 when they moved to 
a farm near Cassville, Indiana. 



His grand daughter remembers visiting at their farm 



182 



All I remember of Grandfather Heady is he was a tall man, at times cranky but 
also very loving and nice... In the winter he used to pull us on a big sled like 
thing that he used to pull the slop for the pigs. He would put all three of us on 
it and slide down the hill and across the creek into the snow bank. 

Oliver Clinton and Oda Mae Heady are buried in Crown Point Cemetery, Kokomo, 
Indiana. They had one child: '^^

1919 Jeannesse Sumption, b. 4 Dec 1892, d. 13 Feb 1972, daughter of John 
and Julia C. Sumption.'*" Thomas grew up and was educated in Kokomo. 
During World War I, he entered the Army I Sep 1918 and was discharged 
August 1919. He attained the rank of Sergeant Major. In civilian life he was a 
successful businessman until his retirement in 1965. He and his wife are buried 
in Crown Point Cemetery, Kokomo, Indiana. 



CHAPTER 3 



Elizabeth Heady 



3. Elizabeth' Heady (James') was born between 1804 and 1810, based on the 1820 
census, probably in Butler Co., Ohio. She died before October, 1837. Since James^ 
Heady was born in 1807, she is assumed to have been born in 1805. She married 
Frederick Redwine before 1835 and possibly as early as 1828. Direct information about 
Elizabeth Heady has not been found in legal documents, except the final settlement of 
Dorotha Heady's estate. We know that Dorotha Heady had a deceased daughter called 
"Betsy" from the naming of heirs of Dorotha's estate reproduced in Chapter 1. From the 
same document, we know that "Betsie" married a man named Redwme. Martha Heady, 
wife of Alfred Tennyson Heady, '^''' gives her name as Elizabeth and identifies her 
husband as Frederick Redwine. 

The date of her marriage is estimated from the birth dates of her daughters. Her oldest 
daughter was born about 1829 and her youngest daughter about 1836. There is evidence 
that the oldest daughter may not be Frederick Redwine's, as discussed below. The death 
date of Elizabeth [Heady] Redwine is assumed from the date of a license for a second 
marriage of Frederick Redwine that was applied for in 1837. 

Frederick Redwine was born between 1803 and 1808, probably in Virginia, based on 
census information. He died 16 Aug 1877 in Hamilton County, Indiana.'^* He is first 
placed in Hamilton County, Indiana, on 25 July 1834, when he witnessed a deed.'*'' Then 
on 3 Sep 1834 he officiated at the wedding of Vincent Heady and Polly Ann Richardson 
(see chapter 6). He signed Frederick Redwine, MG (Minister of Gospel). He officiated 
at two other weddings in the same time period. In March, 1836, he bought 40 acres of 
land from Alexander Bovard.'** In 1837 he was a Justice of the Peace in Hamilton 
County. There are advertisements in several issues of The Newspaper (the name of the 
local paper) in the summer of that year signed F. Redwine, J. P. In the fall, the 
advertisements signed by him ceased. 

On 26 Oct 1837, he took out a license to marry Sally Smith at the Hamilton County 
Courthouse.'*^ It is presumed that Elizabeth is dead at this time. A return was never 
made to this license so it is possible that the marriage never occurred. A Frederick 
Redwine did marry an Elizabeth W. Butler in Marion County, Indiana, on 21 Dec 



29

Chapter 3 Elizabeth Heady 



1837."" Then on 9 Jan 1838, Frederick Redwine sold his forty acres of land in Hamilton 
County, Indiana, to Charles H. Heady. Elizabeth Redwine, his wife, co-signed the 
deed.'" 

It appears that Frederick Redwine moved to Clinton County, Indiana, because in the 
1840 census, there is a Frederick Redwine in Clinton County. '^^

The person recording this page of the census got his birthplaces off by one line. 
Frederick was born in Virginia and Elizabeth in Kentucky. So Henry must have been 
born in Ohio. That the birthplaces are wrong is deduced from the fact that the occupation 
"well digger" is on the same line as Elizabeth. 

The 1860 census index does not record a Frederick Redwine in Indiana. There is a 
James Redwine, 22, and wife, Lucy in Clinton County.'** Sarah Redwine is living with 
Caroline Coppock (Elizabeth Heady's daughter) in Adams Township, Hamilton County, 
Indiana (discussed below). The census taker recorded the last name of the Coppock 
family as Topick, but the composition of the family identifies them as Coppock. Does 



Chapters Elizabeth Heady 31 



the fact that Sarah Redwine is living with the Coppock family indicate a relationship 
between Caroline and Sarah? 

There are problems with the census information. The 1840 census had only one boy 0-5 
living with Frederick Redwine. But Henry and James are both in the same age group. 
Henry is too old to be the son of Elizabeth [Butler] and Frederick Redwine (marned Dec 
1837 and Henry born 1835 or 1836). Neither Henry nor James is named as an heir of 
Dorotha Heady. James Redwine was alive m 1870 and living in Hamilton County 
married to Sarah [Harrison] McKinstry Redwine. '"^"^ Henry could be dead by 1866 
when Dorotha Heady's Estate was settled, but he is probably Elizabeth Butler's son by 
a previous marriage and not a Redwine at all. James is probably the son of Elizabeth 
[Butler] and Frederick Redwine. 

There is a Frederick Redwine recorded in the 1870 Hamilton County, census. His age 
is 67 and he is living in the household that includes Humphrey Lacey and family.''*'' It 
is assumed that all these Frederick Redwines are the same person. Frederick Redwine 
died 16 Aug 1877. The Noblesville Ledger reported:''^ 

Another pioneer gone. -Last night Mr. Frederick Redwine, one of the early settlers of this 
county, passed away. His demise occurred about eleven o'clock last evening. His 
friends followed his remains to their last resting place this evening. Brother Redwine had 
been a consistent member of the M.E. church.... The deceased leaves several grown up 
children all of whom are married. 

Children of Elizabeth Heady are: 

21 i. Caroline'^ Heady, b. ca. 1829, m. John Coppock. 

ii. Lucretia Redwine, b. ca. 1836; m. Jacob M. Castetter (see chapter 13 for this 
family). 

21. Caroline^ Heady (Elizabeth^ James') was born about 1829 probably in Hamilton 
County, Indiana. ''* She died between June 1860, when the census was taken, and 3 Jan 
1866 when Dorotha Heady's estate was settled. She may have been an illegitimate child 
of Elizabeth. She is enumerated with Dorothy Heady in the 1850 census and her surname 
is Heady. Her marriage record lists her as Caroline Heady. At the same time her sister, 
Lucretia uses the surname Redwine in her marriage license. 

Caroline Heady married John Coppock 18 Sep 1851 in Hamilton Co., Indiana. "' John 
Coppock was born 5 Apr 1831 in Indiana, the son of Isaac and EUzabeth [Richardson] 
Coppock. ^°° Elizabeth Richardson is the older sister to Polly Ann Richardson who 
married Vincent Heady (see Chapter 6). John Coppock died 5 Jan 1886 and is buried in 
East Union Cemetery, Hamilton County, Indiana.^"' The John Coppock family is 
recorded in the 1860 census in Adams Township, Hamilton County, Indiana. The last

JAMES HEADY 



4. James" Heady (James') was born 30 Jul 
1807, probably in Butler County, Ohio, and 
died 2 Nov 1873 in Hamilton County, 
Indiana.''-' He married about 1831 Polly 
Snodgrass. She was born about 1809 and 
died 29 Mar 1844 in Hamilton County, 
Indiana. James and Polly are buried in the 
Heady Cemetery and share a monument.^'" 
Birth and death dates for James and Polly 
Heady are derived from that monument. The 
inscription for James is on one side and that 
for Polly is on the other. The figure to the 
right shows the side of the monument with 
James Heady's inscription (see Appendix III 
for the survey of the Heady cemetery). 

The record of this marriage was not found, 

although counties surrounding Hamilton 

County were searched (Hamilton County 

marriage records begin in 1833). The date of 

their marriage is assumed based on the birth 

of their first child, Charles, on 10 Sep 1832. 

The maiden name of Polly is provided by 

Martha [Castetter] Heady (see Appendix II). 

There was a John Snodgrass living in Hamilton County, Indiana, in 1830.^''* The U.S. 

census shows a female 20-30 in his household (the right age for Polly). It has not been 

possible to identify this female and the parents of Polly Heady have not yet been verified. 

James Heady was raised on the frontier, so he had little if any formal education. The 
first record to name him is the sale of his father's personal property in 1827 as noted in 
Chapter 1. He is included in the 1820 and 1830 censuses in the household of Dorothy 
Heady, but is not identified. On 7 Sep 1831, he purchased eighty acres of land in

Chapter 4 James Heady 



Hamilton County, (the E 1/2 of the SE 1/4 of section 35, Township 18N, Range 4E) at 
the Indianapolis Land Office of the United States government.'"^ This was the first of a 
number of real estate transactions by James Heady during his life. This tract of land is 
adjacent to the 80 acres that his mother bought in 1827. 

On 7 Sep 1832, James and Polly Headdy (sic) sold twenty acres of land to Dorothy 
Headdy (sic).-'^ The deed was signed by Polly Headdy (her mark). On the same day, 
James Heady bought 15 acres of land from Dorothy Heady.-" The net effect of this 
transaction was to give James Heady a strip thirty rods wide across the top of the SE 1/4 
of section 35. At the same time Dorothy Heady got a strip forty rods wide across the 
bottom of that section. Both deeds were witnessed by EU Heaton and Lewis W. Heady. 

In the 1840 census for Hamilton County, Indiana, a James Heady is recorded in 
Delaware Township. There are four males and two females in the household, as shown 
in the following table. ^''

Children of James and Polly Heady are: 

22 i. Charles' Wesley, b. 10 Sep 1832; m. (1) Josephine Hartman, (2) Lydia 

George. 

23 ii. Thomas W.. b. 29 Dec 1834; m. America Tylier. 

24 iii. Francis M., b. ca. 1841; m. Louisa J. Hartley. 

There may have been other children that died young. This is suggested by the large gap 
between the births of Thomas and Francis. 

James never re-married as far as can be determined. He farmed and bought and sold real 
estate. The table on the following page shows how his farming changed in the years 
1850, 1860, and 1870. His products in 1850 are a little of every thmg, including wool. 
By 1870, his main grain product is corn and his swine population is down to two. 

One aspect of his life is interesting, however, and has not yet been explained. In every 
census, as in the 1850 census shown above, there are other families livmg with him. 
There appears to be a relationship, but it has not yet been established. Following are the 
1860 and 1870 censuses:"'

Chapter 4 James Heady 39 



James Heady left a will in which a specific tract of real estate was left to each of his 
sons."' This land was to go to his sons" children on the death of the parents. The 
remainder of his estate was to be divided equally among them. James' will names 
Charles, Frances, and Thomas as his sons and names Charles as his executor. 

22. Charles^ Wesley Heady (James\ James') was born 10 Sep 1832, probably in 
Hamilton County, Indiana, and died 8 Oct 1914 in Marion, County, Indiana."^ Charles 
Heady was married twice. His first marriage was to Josephine Hartman 16 Nov 1854 
in Hamilton County, Indiana."'^ She was born 8 Mar 1835, probably in Hamilton County 
Indiana, the daughter of Zebulon and Elizabeth [Britton?] Hartman. Josephme 
[Hartman] Heady died 7 Mar 1863 in Hamilton County, Indiana and is buried in the 
Heady Cemetery. ^^^ 

Charles Wesley was the most civically active of the Heady clan in Hamilton County 
during the period of this history. He was a trustee of Delaware Township for the years 
1862, 1871, 1872, 1875, 1876, 1880, and 1884.--^ In 1884, he was a member of the 
Board of Education and served on the Committee on Regulating Teachers Salaries.'^* He 
was a good business man as well. During the time he lived in Hamilton County, he 
accumulated substantial real estate. Also, on a number of occasions he was called upon 
to be the admininistrator or executor of an estate. Politically Charles Heady was an 
Independent. In 1878 he was elected to be one of three representatives from Delaware 
Township on the Central Committee of the Independents of Hamilton County."*^

The second marriage of Charles W. Heady was to Lydia George on 10 Sep 1866 in 
Hamilton County, Indiana.-"^ She was born 15 Nov 1837 in Ohio, the daughter of James 
and Maranda (Sinclair) George.'^" Lydia George had a twin brother, William George, 

who moved to Neosho County, Kansas, as did others from Delaware Township, 
including Andrew Jackson Heady (see chapter 10). In later years, a descendant of 
William George married a descendant of Andrew Jackson Heady. A child of this 
marriage recorded an oral history of the Heady family (see Appendix II). When Lydia's 
father, James George, died. Charles Heady was the executor of the estate. Lydia Heady 
died 15 Dec 191 1 at Broad Ripple in Marion County, Indiana.'"" Her obituary states that 
she "was well known among the W. C. T. U. workers of the county."

No record has been found of a Marriage for Edgar Heady. He was a teacher and 
taught in Delaware Township. An article in the Noblesville Ledger was very 
complimentary of him as a teacher. "'^ In 1894, he took a position with a railroad 
and began work as a brakeman. On his fourth run there was a wreck and Ed 
Heady was thrown from the train and his neck was broken. He was buried in the 
Heady Cemetery 7 Sep 1894, but his tombstone cannot be located.'"^ 

iii. Effie May, b. Jan 1871 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN; m. 4 Apr 1895 in Broad

Starting in 1879, Charles Heady began selling his land. A large part of it was sold to 
Thomas A. Fisher in 1883 and 1884.-" Then in September 1894 he moved with his 
family to Broad Ripple in Washington Township, Marion Co. , Indiana. There he became 
a retailer of groceries, which business he pursued until his retirement about 1911.-'^^ 



Chapter 4 James Heady 41 



Charles Heady died 8 Oct 1914. His son-in-law, F. F. Hummel, wrote his obituary, 
which is reproduced in the Heady Family Newsletter.-^-'' The entire obituary will not be 
reproduced here, but his final words summarize how many saw Charles Wesley Heady: 

...After all, what more should be expected of a man than that he live an exemplary life, 
that he be true to his family, that he devote himself to the welfare of his fellow man and 
so discharge his every obligation that the world will have been made better by his having 
lived therein. That he did so live his life must be the verdict of all who knew him and 
who now grieve to see so good a man lay down his task. May he rest in peace. 

23. Thomasr' W. Heady (James-, James'} was born 29 Dec 1834 in Hamilton County, 
Indiana, and died 23 Jan 1881 in Hamilton County, Indiana. He is buned in the Heady 
Cemetery. This birth date is different from the 29 Dec 1831 shown in the Heady Family 
Newsletter. The date in that publication is derived from one of three readings of the 
tombstone of Thomas Heady. Dates read from tombstones can be incorrect for a number 
of reasons. In this case, the four was not chiseled deeply into the sandstone and can be 
easily mistaken for a one. The four can be brought out on a rubbing, however. 
Fortunately, age at death was also put on the tombstone. It is 46 years and 24 days, 
which makes the birth year 1834. A birth year of 1834 is also consistent with census 
records and the age at death as reported in both the Noblesville Independent and the 
Noblesville Ledger, the newspapers of that day.^'^'* 

Thomas married America Tylier 14 Sep 1859 in Marion County, Indiana.-'''^ She was 
born 6 Feb 1842 in Washington Township, Marion County, Indiana, the daughter of 
Lewis and Elizabeth [Coiier] Tylier.-''* She died 16 Mar 1909 in Noblesville, Hamilton 
County, Indiana. ■^"^'^ 

The surname Tylier is written in several different ways in censuses and legal documents. 
On the tombstone it is spelled Tylyer. The spelling Tylier is that shown in the death 
certificate of America [Tylier] Heady. Lewis Tylier was a farmer in Marion County, 
Indiana. He was born 30 Dec 1809 in Indiana and died 19 Oct 1869 in Marion County, 
Indiana. ^^^ Elizabeth Coiier was born 9 March 1815 in Indiana and died 26 Feb 1884 in 
Hamilton County, Indiana. There is a large monument in the Heady Cemetery with the 
names of Lewis and Elizabeth Tylyer on it. Elizabeth is surely buried there and Lewis 
may be as well.^^^ 

Thomas Heady was a farmer in Delaware Township, Hamilton County, Indiana. Like his 
father and older brother (Charles), he bought and sold real estate, although not to the 
degree of the others. Two of his real estate transactions are of interest. The first is 
related to the land that his father, James^ Heady, left him in his will. This land was in 
Fall Creek Township and a few miles from his other property. So he decided to sell it. 
However, his father had stated that the land should go to his children on the death of 
himself and his wife. So to sell the land, a guardian had to be appointed to protect the 



42 Chapter 4 James Heady 



interests of his children. It is from this legal action that the ages of his children were 
determined.''^'' The other real estate transaction was just before his death. In this sale, the 
signature of his wife, America, was not on the deed. So after his death the court ruled 
that one third of the land was America's by right of dower. 

Thomas Heady died 23 Jan 1881 in Hamilton Co., Indiana. He was 46 years old. The 
cause of his death was not reported. At this time, the Noblesville Independent was 
carrying a series of articles by J. I. Rooker about the early history of Delaware 
Township. In his January 28, 1881, article he had this to say about Thomas Heady: 

Mr. Editor, I have just learned of the death of Thomas Heady, or Tom as he was 
familiarly called. Tom was the son of James Heady, one of the first settlers of this 
township (East Delaware), and who I shall speak about in time. I have known Tom for 
thirty years and can say he was one of the best men I ever knew. Strictly honest and free 
hearted. A good father. Had just one fault - intemperance. Had it not been for this, Tom 
would have been one of the leading men of this county. 

Children of Thomas and America Heady are:-^' 

25 i. Mary^ Elizabeth, b. 23 Jun 1860, m. James H. Eller. 

26 ii. Isadora, b. 18 Jul 1862, m. (1) Absalom F. Eller and (2) Hiram Avery.

found out after his death.

Thomas Heady did not leave a will and the settlement of the estate was quite 
complicated. The first administrator of the estate was Charles W. Heady. Later America 
Heady took over the duties of administratrix. 



Chapter 4 James Heady 43 



America Heady did not re-marry. She devoted herself to raising her children and caring 
for her mother, who had moved to Hamilton Co. prior to the 1880 census. In 1880. 
Elizabeth Tylier was enumerated in the dwelling next to that of Thomas Heady. Elizabeth 
Tylier died 26 Feb 1884. The following obituary appeared in the Noblesville 
Independent: ^^^ 

Died, on Tuesday last, Mrs Elisabeth Tillyer (sic) aged 68 years and 1 1 months, at the 
residence of her daughter Mrs. America Heady, disease congestion of the stomach. 

Mrs. Tillyer had been a member of the church for upward of 30 years and lived in 
strict accordance with the rule of her church as her large circle of friends and 
acquaintenances will testify, but alas! never more will her silent and welcome presence 
gladden the eyes of a friend. She has gone to claim that haven of eternal rest prepared 
for all Gods people who like her shall walk in the straight and narrow path which leads 
to life everlasting. The calm and peaceful face and clasped hands as we took a last look 
at it had none of the terrors of death depicted upon it, but rest, sweet rest was stamped 
upon the countenance and the still form even in death resembled life, to those friends 
who mourn her death and who look with sorrow at the vacant chair where Grandma used 
to sit and which none can ever till. There is but one consolation which is free for all who 
desire to meet with loved ones again. She is free from the cares and turmoils of life and 
enjoying the mysteries of a never ending eternity. 

The sympathies of the community are with the friends in this sad bereavement. The 
funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Bailey at the M.E, Church at 9:30 A. M. on 
Thursday morning last. The remains were intered (sic) in cemetery near Allisonville. 
The funeral services were well attended considering the weather. 

America Heady lived in Fishers until about 1900 when she moved to Noblesville and 
lived with her daughter Alice Lowther until her death. When she died America Heady 
left a simple and straight forward will:^*^ 

I, America M. Heady, of Hamilton County, State of Indiana do hereby make this 
my last will and testament: 

1. I hereby direct that all my just debts be first paid, and I direct that a 
reasonable compensation be paid to my daughter Almeda Lowther for services and care 
performed by her for me during the entire time of my living with her, 

2. I hereby direct that a cemetery lot be purchased in Crowniand Cemetery, 
Noblesville, Indiana. 

3. I hereby direct that all my real estate be sold and converted into cash. 

4. After payment of my just debts, I hereby direct that a suitable monument be 
purchased for my grave at an expense not to exceed sixty dollars. 

5. After the compliance with my specific direction and bequests herein, I hereby 
devise and bequeath all of my property both real and personal to my five children Mary 



44 Chapter 4 James Heady 



E. Eller, Ezodora Avery. Almeda Lowther, Clara V. Harrison, and James L. Heady 
share and share alike, the share going to each to go to the children of such child in case 
of death of the parent. 

Witness my hand and seal this Thursday, October 8, 1908. 

Mrs. America M. Heady 

24. Francis^ M. Heady (James', James') was born 26 May 1841 probably in Hamilton 
County, Indiana-*^ and died 2 Feb 1874 in Hamilton County, Indiana.^™ He married 
Louisa J. Hartley on 19 Sep 1861 in Hamilton County, Indiana.-^' Louisa Hartley was 
born 17 Feb 1842 in Henry County, Indiana,-''^ the daughter of Amos and Sarah 
Hartley.^'' 

Frances Heady was a farmer all his life. But mostly he worked for other farmers. He did 
own property in Hamilton County and may have farmed it. The first property he owned 
was obtained from his father in 1856. 

During the Civil War, he enlisted in the 20th Light Artillery Battery of the Indiana 
Volunteers on 18 Aug 1862 and was discharged 28 Jun 1865.™ He was married while 
he was in the Army. Shortly after his marriage he became sick and was sent to the 
hospital at Camp Carrington. His unit left Indianapolis without him but he re-joined it 
later in Louisville. His assignment in the army was teamster. During his service, he was 
injured by falling off a horse or cannon. This injury seems to have affected him later in 
life. 

After the war, Francis returned to farming. He and his family lived in Delaware 
Township, Hamilton County, Indiana. For a time they lived on the farm of his brother, 
Charles Wesley, but later they lived on his father's farm. Francis Heady was only 33 
when he died. The cause of his death was pneumonia according to the attending 
physician. 

In later years, his widow and son applied for veteran's pensions, which were denied. The 
decision was appealed and the depositons taken for the original application and the appeal 
are voluminous."' The application for pension was based on the claim that the pneumonia 
Francis Heady died from resulted from damage to his lungs caused by his army service. 
A special examiner who took charge of the case developed among other things that 
Francis Heady was a drinking man. The special examiner in his summary of the 
testimony expanded this observation about Francis Heady, saying: 

It is admitted by all that he was intemperate. He came from a family of local reputation 
as "spree-goers" and fighters. He was a drinker before service as well as after. 



Chapter 4 James Heady 45 



There appeared to be an attempt to show that the death of Francis Heady was the resuU 
of his getting drunk and catching cold by being out in the winter weather. Whatever the 
case, the requests for pension were denied. Frances Heady served his country for almost 
three years and was not given a pension, while others who served as little as three 
months were. 

Children of Francis M. and Louisa J. Heady are: 

i. Samantha* Josephine, b. 5 Dec 1862 prob. in Hamilton Co.. IN,-"' d. 16 Jun 
1880, in Hamilton Co., IN;"' m. 1 Sep 1879 in Hamilton Co., IN, Ellwood

in the Heady Cemetery and has one of the larger monuments in the cemetery. 
The monument also has her daughters name and vital statistics on it. they died 
fourteen days apart.-*' Elwood and Samantha Haworth had one child:

ii. James Wesley, b. 25 Aug 1866 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN,-*' d. 14 May 
1920.^^ No marriage record has been found for him. Census records show him 
in 1870, with Francis and Louisa Heady; in 1880, he is living with John and 
Louisa Lewis and he is not shown as a Heady; in 1900, he is living with his 
mother, Louisa Lewis; and in 1920, he is living alone. In 1900 his occupation

left Hamilton County sometime before 1900 
and moved West. When he left Indiana and 
where he was before 1900 has not been 
established. There were Headys from Indiana 
living in Neosho County, Kansas, in this

Chapter 4 James Heady 



He married Hattie Irene Kinnard, in Pueblo, 
Colorado, on 6 December, 1899.""^ She was 
born in Cowley County, Kansas, 2 Oct 1878, 
and died in Fallon, Nevada, 6 Feb 1914. She 
was the daughter of Joseph and Sarah Jane 
[CoUins] Kinnard.''' 

The IGI shows Henry as the oldest child. The 
US census for 1880 and the Kansas census for 
1885, shown below, for the Joseph Kinnard 
family, establish Hattie as the oldest child. 
These censuses also establish 1878 as her birth 
year. Her birth place is Cowley County, 
Kansas, by the same evidence. My 
grandfather mistakenly showed her birth place 
as Wichita, Kansas, in her death certificate.

Hattie Irene Kinnard has not been found in the 1895 Kansas census. In fact, only her 
mother and two of her siblings have been found. Joseph and Sarah Jane Kinnard sold 



Chapter 4 James Heady 49 



their property in Cowley County 6 Nov 1885 and moved to Elk County.'" There they 
bought land and had additional children. But they apparently had financial problems, 
because the Sheriff sold their property in 1896."*^ Since only Sarah Jane and two of her 
children can be found in 1895, it is assumed that Joseph Kinnard left the state. 

After their marriage, James Lewis and Hattie Irene Heady lived in Pueblo, Colorado for 
several years. Two children were born in Pueblo, Colorado, and a third one in Fowler, 
Colorado. James Heady's occupation in Pueblo is shown as Mechanic in the birth record 
of his daughter Alice. In Fowler he was a farmer and on 11 Aug 1905 he is reported to 
have shipped a carload of cantaloupe.''^ On 24 Nov 1907, they moved to Fallon, 
Nevada.-'^* This move was made by train. From the amount of belongings moved, it 
included a buggy for Hattie, we can conclude that James Lewis Heady had been 
successful in Colorado. 

In Fallon, Nevada, he bought forty acres of land and began farming. Family tradition 
is that he introduced "Hearts of Gold" cantaloupe to Fallon. This crop was very 
successful in later years and is still grown there. The fact that he grew cantaloupe in 
Colorado lends credence to the story. But he changed occupations in 1910 before Fallon 
became known for its cantaloupe. In 1910 he bought the Fallon Hotel and re-named it 
the "Grand Hotel." He owned this hotel until 1921 when he sold it to Pierre Hauret."' 
He also became a real estate broker and, later, the president of Fallon Nevada Oil Co.'^° 

Three more children were born in Fallon, but only one survived. 1914 was a sad year 
for this family. Hattie was pregnant and became ill. Her youngest child, Madeline died 
in January. ^^' She died 6 Feb 1914 the same day her newly born child died.'^- She is 
buried in the Fallon Cemetery with the child in her arms. 

The child that survived was my mother, Dorotha May Heady. She later changed her first 
name to Dorothy. She told of the time that they lived at the hotel. The children provided 
some of the domestic help. Also, this was before modern laundry systems and hotel 
laundry was hung out to dry. The children had the duty of watching the laundry on the 
line to keep the goats from eating it.

vi. Mattie, b. 25 Jan 1914 in Fallon, NV, d. 6 Feb 1914 in Fallon, NV, bur. 
Fallon, NV.'" 

During the illness of his wife and child, James Heady engaged a nurse, Mattie Gross, 
to care for his wife and daughter. On 31 Oct 1915,''^* James Heady and Mattie Gross 
were married in the Grand Hotel, Fallon, Nevada. Gross was Mattie's married name. 
She had a daughter Lois 9 years old. Matties mother, Mrs. Pilant, attended the 
wedding, so Pilant may be Matties maiden name. The 1920 census for Fallon, Nevada, 
has James Lewis, Mattie, his daughters Faye and Dorothy, and step-daughter Lois in the 
household.-''^'' But this marriage did not last. In 1921, James and Mattie Heady were 
divorced. 

After the divorce, James L. Heady remained in Fallon until about 1929, when the last 
real estate transaction in his name is recorded."^ About 1930, he moved to Los Angeles 
where he met and married Cora [Cooly] Gilbert. In Los Angeles, he managed 
apartments and was a salesman. His death certificate shows his last occupation as crane 
operator for Lockeed. 

James Lewis Heady is my grandfather. My first recollection of him was in Los Angeles 
in the 1940s. At this time he was in his late sixty s. He was a short man and quite active. 
The thing I remember most was that he was working on an invention for an automobile 
to automatically indicate the turn direction. His idea was to equip a car with a mechanical 
arm that would swing out to show the turn direction. Soon the automobile manufactures 
adopted a different approach using flashing lights. 

30. Edward^ Francis Heady (James'', Thomas^, James\ James') was born in Pueblo, 
Colorado, 10 June 1900'^^ and died in Loveland, Colorado, 23 Sep 1962.^'" He grew up 
in Fallon, Nevada, living in the Grand Hotel, which was owned by his father. Here he 
learned the hotel and restaurant business, which he practiced most of his life. 



Chapter 4 James Heady 5 1 



He was married twice. His first marriage was to Deah about 1919. What became 

of this first marriage is not known to me. One child was born to Edward and Deah 
Heady: 

i. Larue*, b. Mar 1920. 

He married a second time to Lucille V. (MoUie) on 28 March 1928, in Yuma, 

Arizona. Edward (familiarly known as "Jack") and Molly moved to Loveland, Colorado, 
about 1938, where they spent the rest of their lives. Until 1945, they operated the 
Windsor Cafe in Loveland. Then they bought a tourist court they named "Heady's Motor 
Court." The 1956 Loveland Directory shows them owning apartments as well as Heady's 
Motor Court. In 1960, Heady's Motor Court has new owners and Jack and Molly own 
the Beacon Motel and Heady Apartments. 

Besides owning and managing motels and apartments, Jack Heady worked as a chef. 
Loveland Directories show him working at Draper Drug store in 1950 and as chef of his 
(Beacon) motel in 1960. His obituary states "...For several summers he worked as a cook 
at resorts in Colorado Springs, Grand Lake, and Estes Park. He was employed in Estes 
Park when he became ill about two months ago."'''" He is buried in Loveland Burial 
Park, Loveland, Colorado.

Mark Heady 



5. Mark^ Heady {James') was born 27 Dec 1812 based on his age at death on his 
tombstone. ^-^ He died 15 Mar 1848 and was buned in the Heady Cemetery. According 
to Heady Family Information, he was born 15 Jan 1813. The source of this information 
about his birth is not known so the date derived from the tombstone will be used. Mark's 
place of birth is probably Butler County, Ohio, as discussed in chapter 1. The IGI has 
his birthplace as Hamilton County, Indiana, but this is not consistent with fact that that 
part of Indiana was Indian territory in 1813. The first document of his presence in 
Hamilton County, Indiana, is a purchase of 40 acres of land from the Federal 
Government on 18 Jul 1833.'" He would have been 20 at the time, based on the above 
birth date. 

He married Martha Tharp on 20 Dec 1834.''-'''* Her birth date and death date have caused 
some confusion. The confusion begins with Martha's death date and age. Her tombstone 
very plainly shows her dying 13 Dec 1812, Age 66y 15d, and as wife of Mark. This 
death date is obviously incorrect. The area where the cemetery is now was Indian lands 
in 1812. Also, Martha, wife of Mark, was 37 in the 1850 census.'''''' Then according to 
the IGI Martha Tharp was born 28 Dec 1812. The Hamilton County Ledger for Friday, 
20 Dec 1878, states that Martha Heady died "Friday last," which would be 13 Dec 1878 
(note that the day and month are the same as on the tombstone). Then if her age at death 
on her tombstone is correct, she was born 28 Nov 1812. It will be accepted that the death 
date from the Ledger is correct and that the age at death on the tombstone is correct. 
This would make Martha Tharp's birth date 28 Nov 1812. 

Martha's birth place in the IGI is also wrong. The IGI has her birth place as Hamilton 
County, Indiana, which is unlikely as previously stated. Based on the 1850 and 1860 
U.S. censuses, Martha was born in New York.'''* Martha Tharp was the daughter of 
John Tharp and Mary Benham.''"'' This is confirmed by the probate of Mary Tharp's 
estate. On 21 May 1879, the heirs of Mary Tharp were defendants in a petition to sell 
some of the estate of Mary Tharp.'''* Two of the heirs were Martha [Tharp] Heady's 
daughters Dorotha Colburn and Angeline Bradley (Martha having already died).

54 Chapter 5 Mark Heady 



Little is known about the life of Mark Heady. He must have been successful as a farmer. 
He not only bought the 40 acres of land from the government mentioned above, he 
bought an additional 40 acres from William Conner 29 May 1847.'-^^ Mark Heady died 
just a month after his last child was born. He did not leave a will and his brother, 
Thomas, was the administrator of his estate. '■*" The oldest child was twelve. Martha had 
to raise the six children and run the family farm. In the 1850 census, Jefferson Tharp, 
probably a brother, is living with her and is called a laborer. ''*' Four of her children died 
before she did. Only Dorotha and Angeline survived her. 

Mark and Martha Heady had six children:

Indiana, and died 10 Dec 1870, probably in Hamilton County.'''*^ She married first 
Francis M. Bradley 1 Jul 1852 in Hamilton County, Indiana. -''''° It has not been possible 
to learn anything about the parents of Francis Bradley. Also, the marriage was apparently 
short lived because Melinda Bradley married a John Lewis on 1 1 Oct 1855 in Hamilton 
County, Indiana. '^' No information has been found concerning what happened to Francis 
Bradley or to the marriage. 

John Lewis was born about 1830,'" the son of James and Nancy [Brown] Lewis.''" John 
and Melinda Lewis lived in Hamilton County for the next ten years. During this time 
they had children, but none of them survived.'''''' On 17 Mar 1865, John joined the army 
to fight in the Civil war. He was a private in Company E, 155th Regiment of the Indiana 
Volunteers and was discharged 10 Aug 1865.'''^ 



Chapter 5 Mark Heady 55 



After he was discharged from the army, John and Melinda Lewis had a son: 

i. Mark\ b. ca. 1869"^ prob. in Hamilton Co., IN; d. ca. Sep 1893 prob in 
Hamilton Co., IN."' 

John Lewis had a brother, James W. Lewis, who had married Sylvia A. Butterfield on 

15 Jan 1852 in Hamilton, Indiana.-'^* James Lewis enlisted in the army 7 Aug 1862 and 
died 26 Dec 1863 at Paris, Illinois, of typhoid fever.-'' At the time of his enlistment,

In the 1870 census, Sylvia and her five youngest children are living with John and 
Melinda Lewis/'*' But Sylvia and her children are listed right below John, with Melinda 
and her son Mark (Martin) at the bottom. This made it look like John had married 
Sylvia. But the pension records cleared it up. By this time, the oldest son of Sylvia, 
Franklin, had been placed for adoption.

It is possible that the confusion was caused by Sylvia. I wondered why her husband 
joined the army when they had six children. Then in 1865 John Hanks Butterfield 
included this in his will: 

I... give devise and bequeath to my daughter Sylvia Lewis five dollars ($5.00) only as the 
only portion she is to have in my estate in consequence of her disobedience and 
ungratefulness.'*^ 

Then on 20 May 1878 her oldest son Frank instituted an action to have her declared 
mentally incompetent."*' The next record we find for Sylvia Lewis is a marriage to 
George Moore. ^^ 

On 2 Sep 1875 John Lewis married Louisa J. [Hartley] Heady, the widow of Frances

Vincent Heady 



6. Vincent^ Heady (James') was horn 10 May 1811 in Ohio, probably Butler County. State of 
birth is determined from the 1850 and 1860 U.S. censuses for Hamilton County, Indiana.'" His 
date of birth was not as easily determined. The 10 May 1811 date is calculated from his 
tombstone in the Heady Cemetery. The IGI shows his birthdate as 10 May 1814, but the proof 
of this date is not provided. The 1850 census lists his age as 36, which agrees with an 1814 birth. 
The 1860 census shows his age as 52, which is consistent with an 1808 birth. The 10 May 1811 
will be used because it is based on citable information. He died 21 Feb 1862 at the age of 50y 
9m 1 Id,'*^ probably in Hamilton County, Indiana. On his tombstone, his name is spelled Vincen. 

Vincent Heady was married twice. His first wife was Polly Ann Richardson. She was born 27 
Feb 1817 in Ohio,"'" the daughter of John and Hannah Richardson."" Vincent and Polly Ann 
were married 3 Sep 1834 in Hamilton County, Indiana, by F, Redwine, MG (assumed to be 
Elizabeth [Heady] Redwine's husband)."'* At the time of their marriage, Polly Ann was 17 and 
a minor. There is no indication that permission was obtained for her to marry. 

Polly Ann Richardson's father, John Richardson, died 11 Oct 1830, in Marion County, 
Indiana."" Her mother, Hannah Richardson, became executrix of John Richardson's estate and 
guardian of her five minor children, including Polly Ann."^^ An older daughter, Elizabeth, was 
married to Isaac Coppock."" Both families lived in Washington Township, Marion County, 
Indiana. Hannah died before 11 Feb 1834 when Isaac Coppock, as administrator, entered an 
inventory of her estate."^ At this time a neighbor, George Medsker, became the guardian of 
Polly Ann and Joseph, minor children of John and Hannah Richardson."-" After marrying Polly 
Ann, Vincent Heady petitioned the Marion County Court for the guardianship to be revoked, 
which was granted."^' 

Vincent was a successful farmer and a prolific father. He was one of three sons of James and 
Dorotha to buy land from the Federal Government. He bought 80 acres in Section 36, Township 
18, Range IV."" The first 40 acres was purchased 22 Nov 1834, just over two months after his 
marriage to Polly Ann. The second 40 acres was purchased a little over a year later. Then in 
1852, he bought 40 acres from William Conner in section 33."'" This gave him 120 acres. Then 
he bought another 80 acres before 1860. The following table from the agricultural censuses shows 
his success in farming. The 1870 data is for Sarah Heady, his second wife, since Vincent is dead.

Chapter 6 Vincent Heady 63 



Vincent Heady's success as a farmer is demonstrated by comparing 1850 to 1860. Total 
acres owned increased from 80 to 200, and improved acres went from 30 to 100. Grain 
production went from 535 bushels to 1 150. Also interesting is the change in distribution 
of products. Corn is the major grain and the cash livestock is swine. 

Vincent and Polly Ann had nine children, but only only six lived to maturity. This was 
not uncommon during this period as cholera, typhoid fever, scariet fever, and other 
diseases took their toll. Polly Ann died 25 Mar 1852 in Hamilton County, Indiana, and 
is buried in the Heady Cemetery.'*'" 

Children of Vincent and Polly Ann [Richardson] Heady are:"'* 

i. Sarah Elizabeth', b. 15 Nov 1835,'" m. Michael Castetter (see Chapter 13). 

35 ii. Hannah, b. ca. 1837; m. Noble McDaniel. 

iii. James M., b. 12 Sep 1839 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN,"'' d. 12 Feb 1856, buried 
in the Heady Cemetery.

v. Tilman Howard, b. 11 Jan 1843 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN,""" d. 2 Jan 1844, 
buried in the Heady Cemetery. 

vi. Fannie Jane, b. 17 Sep 1844;*" m. Benjamin Peter Castetter (see Chapter 13).

38 Ix. William Worchester, b. 15 Jan 1852;^ m. (1) Nancy [Lewis] Seymour, (2) 

Louise Justice. 

The second marriage of Vincent was to Sarah Castetter, one of five children of Peter 
and MoUy Castetter who married Headys. Sarah was born 18 Feb 1824, probably in 
Marion County, Indiana. She died 24 Jan 1898 in Hamilton County, Indiana, and is 
buried in the Heady cemetery.""'' Her death was attributed to an accident three weeks 
earlier. She slipped on the ice on a porch and fell breaking her hip.""* She was living 
with her daughter, Mrs. Frank Humbles, when she died. 

Sarah Castetter and Vincent Heady were married 25 Sep 1855 in Hamilton County, 
Indiana.""^ As will be discussed in Chapter 13, there was another Heady/Castetter 
marriage that took place earlier. That was between Vincent's daughter by his first wife, 
Sarah Elizabeth, and Michael Castetter, a son of Peter and Molly Castetter. So Vincent's 



64 Chapter 6 Vincent Heady 



daughter became Sarah Castetter and Michael Castetter's older sister became Sarah 
Heady and his mother-in-law. 

When Vincent Heady died in 1862, he left an estate that required probate. Charles 
Wesley Heady was made guardian of Vincent Heady's minor children^* and Thomas 
Heady was named administrator of his estate.'^' On 19 May 1866, the proof of heirship 
and distribution of the estate was made.*™ Then on 31 Mar 1868, his land was partitioned 
among his heirs. Sarah Heady was alloted one third according to law, which accounts for 
the 80 acres she claims in the 1870 agricultural census. 

At his death, nine of his children were still living. Sarah and Hannah were married, so 
seven were still at home, these were: Fannie Jane, Joseph, Andrew Jackson, William, 
Polly Ann, Isaac, and Amanda. By 1870, only Polly Ann and Amanda were still at 
home. Isaac died in 1866 and Amanda died in 1872. 

Children of Vincent and Sarah Heady are: 

39 i. Polly Ann\ b. 16 Jul 1856,'" m. William Franklin Humbles. 

ii. Isaac, b. 19 Feb 1858 prob. Hamilton Co., IN.'" d. 9 Feb 1866 in Hamilton

35. Hannah"' Heady (Vincenf, James') was born about 1837 in Hamilton County, 
Indiana, and died before 1866 when Dorotha Heady's estate was settled (the settlement 
lists her as deceased). She married Noble McDaniel 21 Mar 1853 in Hamilton County.**"'*

book was supplied by him.'**^ 

iii. Barbara Jane, b. ca. 1858 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN,'^ m. Milton House."*' 
The place of this marriage has not been found. Information about the marriage 
is provided by Martha [Castetter] Heady (see Appendix II). 

36. Joseph^ Perry Heady (Vincent, James') was born 19 Mar 1847, in Delaware 
Township, Hamilton County, Indiana/**^ He died 29 Oct 1924 and is buried in Beaver 
Cemetery.'**' Nothing has been learned about his life prior to 18 Dec 1863 when he 
enlisted in Company C, 130th Regiment of the Indiana Volunteers.*™ At the time of his 
enlistment he is described as 5' 4" tall, fair complexion, dark eyes, and light hair. He 
served as a private until 2 June 1865, when he was honorably discharged at Louisville, 
Kentucky. He was in hospitals several times during his service and claimed to have been 
injured from having a log fall on him while building a breastwork in Georgia.*^' 

He was married three times. The first marriage was 31 Dec 1866 in Hamilton County, 
Indiana, to Phebe Tharp.'*^- She was born about 1845 in Indiana, the daughter of Vinson 
(Vincent?) and Emaline Tharp.*^' This marriage apparently did not last, because both 
Joseph and Phebe later had different spouses. But a divorce record has yet to be found. 

One child was born to Joseph and Phebe Heady: 

40 i. Thomas'*, b. Mar 1867 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN; m. Nora Trout. 

The second marriage of Joseph P. Heady was 9 Oct 1869 in Hamilton County, Indiana, 
to Catharine Murphy. ''''' She was born 29 Mar 1847 in Ohio,**^'' the daughter of Archie 
and Elisabeth Murphy.'*^* Catharine [Murphy] Heady died 9 Mar 1891 in Hamilton

Joseph Heady married third Nancy Phipps (her married name) II Sep 1894 in 
Indianapolis/^' Nancy Heady died in 1908 and is buried in the Beaver Cemetery. Her 
tombstone shows her birth year as 1844. In the 1900 census for Hamilton County, 
Indiana, the Joseph Heady household includes his wife Nancy (age 69), born Aug 1830, 
his son Lemuel (16), and his step daughter Lola Phipps (11), born May 1889^^^ (died 
1916). '*'■'' It is unlikely that Nancy is 69 with a daughter eleven years old. The 1844 birth 
date on the tombstone is probably correct. 

Much of the information shown above is from a Bureau of Pensions questionaire that 
Joseph Heady completed 1 Apr 1915. In that questionaire he stated that Nancy Phipps 
was dead and that he had no children by her. He also claimed to have had no children 
by Phebe Tharp, but Thomas Heady listed Joseph Heady and Phebe Tharp as his parents 
on his marriage application. Also, Joseph Heady 's obituary in the Ledger states "The two 
sons, Lemuel and Thomas... were pall bearers.'"*** 

An interesting insight into Joseph Heady 's character comes from Charles G. Townsend, 

a Special Examiner appointed to examine a claim by Frances Heady's widow (Louisa 
[Hartley] Heady) for a Civil War pension. Among the witnesses he deposed concerning 
this claim was Joseph Heady. He rated Joseph P. Heady's reputation as "fair", and said: 
"I rate him as I do for reason that I learn that he has been in habit of boarding at a low 
dive recently raided by the city police. "*^^ 

A more favorable insight into the type of person Joseph Heady was is given by the report 
of his death by The Noblesville Ledge r.*"^^ 

Joseph Perry Heady, aged seventy-eight and one of the well known 
residents of the south part of the county, was instantly killed when he fell in a 
building in his property in Fishers. He suffered a fractured skull according to an 
investigation by Coroner Charles Coaltrin and lived only a few seconds after 
striking the floor. 

He had sold the building in which the accident occurred to a man by the 
name of Morgan and a part of the contract was for him to wreck it. He was 
engaged in this work when the accident occurred. He was Knocking off some of

the weather boarding with an ax and was about ten feet from the floor when, in 
some manner, he lost his footing and fell..." 

You have to give credit to anyone who is that active and independent at 78 years of age. 

37. Andrew* Jackson Heady (Vincent^, James') was born 19 Apr 1849 in Hamilton 
County, Indiana.'*^^ He died 14 Aug 1880, and is buried in the Lowery Cemetery in 
Hamilton County. "'^^ He married Sarah Jane Humbles 13 Jan 1872 in Hamilton 
County. "^^ Sarah Jane was born in July 1846-^*^ and died 4 Nov 1925, in Noblesville, 
Indiana.^"' She is also buried in the Lowery Cemetery. ■°- She is the daughter of Isaac 
and Mary Jane Humbles.'"' The 1880 U.S. census for Fall Creek Township., Hamilton

The age shown for Andrew Jackson in the 1880 census is not consistent with the 1850 
or 1860 census records, which are consistent with the birth date shown above. Also, the 
age shown for Seymour, who is listed as a son is not consistent with the marriage date. 
A census record for Andrew Jackson in 1870 has not been found, nor has an earlier 
marriage for either Andrew Jackson or Sarah Jane. Andrew Jackson Heady died 14 Aug 
1880.'°" On 19 Aug 1880 Sarah Heady, widow of A. J. Heady, petitioned the court to 
declare the estate of her deceased husband to be worth less than $500."*""'^ Since the estate 
was worth less than $500, there was no probate and it was not possible to determine how 
Seymour was related. 

A Cora S., son of A. J. and S. J. Heady is buried in Lowery Cemetery (the inscription 
recorded for that tombstone has his death year 1830, which is obviously wrong, possibly 
a misread). His birth date, based on this tombstone, assuming an 1880 death, is 9 June 
1868. It is assumed that this child was adopted by Andrew and Sarah. There is a Cora 
Seymour, age 2, enumerated with Isaac Humbles in the 1870 census for Fall Creek 
Township, Hamilton County, Indiana, dwelling 226. But that Cora Seymour is recorded 
as a female. Both Andrew and Semour died within a month of each other. Note that 
Semour had typhoid fever at the time of the census. 



68 Chapter 6 Vincent Heady 



Sarah Jane Heady did not re-marry. She is found in the 1900 U.S. census for Fall Creek 
Township., Hamilton County, Indiana, dwelling 310, living in the household of George 
Lednum and is called a sister-in-law. The census shows a Flora D. as George Lednum's 
wife. George Lednum and Flora D. Humbles were married 9 Dec 1877.'^'* 

38. William^ Worchester Heady (Vincent^, James') was born 15 Jan 1852 probably in 
Hamilton County, Indiana"^" and died 16 Mar 1900 in Hamilton County. ■'*°* He married 
first Nancy Seymour 18 Mar 1874 in Hamilton County.'^"' The marriage apparently was 
not a happy one. Divorce proceedings were instituted in 1877 and twice in 1878, but 
were dismissed on each occasion. Then in May, 1879, divorce was granted.'^'" There 
were no children from this marriage. 

He married second Louisa Justice on 25 Jun 1881 in Hamilton County.'^" William W. 
Heady died tragically by falling from a Midland passenger train, as described in the 
following newspaper article.'''^ 

The remains of William Heady who was killed four miles east of this 
city last Friday by falling from a Midland passenger train, were taken through 
Noblesville, Saturday evening, to Fisher's Station, where they were buried 
Sunday Morning. 

The particulars of the accident have not yet been published. Heady 
started to light his pipe in the general coach and, as there were two or three 
ladies on board. Conductor Trissal told him that if he wished to smoke he would 
have to go forward into the smoking compartment of the baggage car. He was 
helped across the platform by the conductor, but when the latter returned to the 
general coach. Heady followed him. Being under the influence of liquor, he could 
not steady himself while on the platform without assistance, and fell off. His neck 
was broken. He was 55 years of age and leaves a wife and several children in 
needy circumstances. 

He died Friday, 16 Mar 1900, and was buried at Fisher's Station, presumably in the 
Heady Cemetery. However, his tombstone was not found in the Heady Cemetery nor in 
any of the other cemetery inscriptions recorded in the Noblesville-Southeastern Library.

In the partition of Vincent Heady's real estate previously mentioned, Polly Ann and 
Amanda were given the homestead then occupied by Sarah Heady, subject to a life estate 
of Sarah Heady. Because Amanda was dead, Polly Ann got possession of the entire 
homestead on the death of her mother. Polly Ann was living there when she died.

Chapter 7 



Charles Heady 



7. Charles' H. Heady (James'} is shown here as the sixth child of James' and Dorotha 
Heady. However, the information concerning his birth date and birthplace are 
conflicting. The inscription on his grave in the Heady Cemetery has his death date 9 Aug 
1852 and age at death 39 years 5 months and 1 day.'^'^* That would make his birth 8 Mar 
1813. But Mark Heady's birthdate is 27 Dec 1812 (also from the Heady Cemetery). 
These two birth dates are too close together to be possible. In the 1850 census, Charles 
age is shown as 32, which would make his birthdate be 1817 or 1818. But his birthplace 
is shown as Ohio, which is consistent with a birth date before 1815. So it is not possible 
to say for certain when he was born, but if he was born in Ohio, it must have been 
before 1815. This is based on the assumption that the James Heady family left Ohio 
shortly after James bought land in Jackson County, Indiana, Rubbings made of the 
inscriptions on the tombstones of Mark and Charles show that the dates cannot be 
mistaken. The only explanation is that the person making the tombstone got the wrong 
information or made a mistake. Without additional information, it is not possible to 
determine which dates are correct. 

Charles Heady was a farmer like his brothers. On 29 Jan 1838 he bought 40 acres of 
land from Frederick Redwine."^" He sold this property to Vincent Heady on 6 Aug 
1852, three days before his death. In the 1850 agricultural census, he has improved 30 
acres and 10 acres are unimproved. During the year, he produced 25 bushels of wheat 
and 600 bushels of corn. This is comparable to that of his brother Vincent. 

On 14 Jun 1844 he married Bulin (Beulah?) Tucker,^'*^ daughter of George and Nancy 

Tucker. ^-"^^ She was born 9 March 1825 and died 18 Apr 1848 at age 23, probably in 
Hamilton County, Indiana. ■^*° Buliah (the tombstone spelling) and Charles are buried in 
the Heady Cemetery, as are Buliah 's mother and father. '**' 

Charles H. Heady died 9 Aug 1852, probably in Hamilton County, Indiana.'" He made 
a will on 6 Aug 1852 and it was proved on 25 Aug 1852.'*' He directed that first his just 
debts and funeral expenses be paid. The remainder of his estate was to be applied to the 
education of his daughter Nancy Ann during her minority and then for her to have on 



71 



72 Chapter 7 Charles Heady 



reaching her majority. He asked that his "friend and brother Thomas Heady" be his 
executor and the guardian of his daughter. 

Charles and Buliah Heady had two children: 

41. i. Nancy^ Ann, b. 24 Mar 1845 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN;'** m. Fifield C. 
Faussett. 

ii. Mary, b. . d. 5 Aug 1848 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN, buried in the Heady 

Cemetery.**^ 

But on 10 Nov 1854 Thomas Heady died and it was necessary to name another guardian 
for Nancy Ann. Then on 12 Feb 1855, another brother, Andrew^ Jackson Heady became 
the guardian.''^ In the 1860 census, Nancy Ann was living with her grandmother, 
Dorotha.'*^ On 5 Jan 1864 Andrew J. Heady reported to the court that he had purchased 
61 1/2 acres of land for Nancy Ann and executed a deed in her name.'*** 

41, Nancy^ Ann Heady (Charles^ James') was born 24 Mar 1845, probably in Hamilton 
County, Indiana, and died 9 Aug 1900,'*^ she is buried in East Hill Cemetery in Neosho 
County, Kansas. She married Fifield C. Fausset on 6 Apr 1864 in Hamilton County, 
Indiana. "° He was born 24 Mar 1836,"' the son of Jacob V. and Lavinia Fausset."^ 
Fifield Faussett may be buried in East Hill Cemetery in Neosho County, Kansas, in the 
same plot with Nancy Ann, five of their children, and his mother Lavinia. There is a 
tombstone in the Fausset plot with his name inscribed. It has his birth date on it but his 
death date is not cut. It is possible that he is not buried there, but that a tombstone was 
erected for him when his wife died. Then if he died somewhere else, he may not have 
been buried in Neosho County. 

Lavinia Faussett, Fifield Faussett's mother, was born 4 Nov 1808 and died 7 Nov 
1872."-' Jacob Faucett (sic.) died prior to 20 Feb 1867 when his estate was entered into 
probate in the Hamilton County, Indiana, Circuit Court."* Apparently many or all of the 
Faussets moved to Kansas before 1870. Besides Fifield, Lavinia's sons Richard, J.V., 
and Robert have been found in Kansas censuses. 

On 3 Aug 1864, Andrew J. Heady reported to the Hamilton County Court that he had 
paid to Nancy Ann's husband the remainder of her inheritance and his guardianship was 
terminated."'' Sometime thereafter, the Fifield Fausset family moved to Allen County, 
Kansas, where they are recorded in the 1870 U.S. census."* They bought property in 
Allen County,'^ but later moved to the city of Osage Mission in Neosho County, Kansas, 
where they are recorded in the 1875 Kansas state census."* The Fifield Fausset family 
was not found in the 1880 or the 1900 U.S. censuses for Kansas. Many states besides 



Chapter 7 Charles Heady 73 



Kansas were surveyed in the 1900 census, but they were not found. At this time, it has 
not been possible to determine what happened to this family. 

Children of Fifield and Nancy Ann Fausset are:"^ 

i. Ida* May. b. 5 Jan 1865, prob. in Hamilton Co., IN; d. 30 Mar 1876 in

Mary Heady 



8. Mary^ Heady (James'} was born 18 Oct 1815,"' probably in Jackson County, 
Indiana, and died 28 Mar 1875 in New Britton, Hamilton County, Indiana.'*" She 
married David Redwine before 1832, probably in Hamilton County.'" David Redwine 
was born about 1808 in Virginia'^^ and died 12 Sep 1897 in Hamilton County.'*^ Mary 
and David are both buried in the Heady Cemetery, but David's tombstone was not found. 

David Redwine bought 40 acres of land from the U.S. government in partnership with 
his brother-in-law James^ Heady in 1833 (SWl/4 NEl/4 S35 T18 R4).'^^' He subsequently 
sold his interest in this land to James Heady'^' and bought land in Fall Creek Township. 
He was a farmer and the Redwines lived on that land the remainder of their lives. 

There is nothing spectacular to tell about David and Mary. They were good citizens and 
good parents. When their daughter Lucinda died, with her husband already dead, they 
raised her children. Later in life, after Mary had died, David was the subject of the 
following item in The Ledger on 10 May 1889: 

It has been said that "trouble never comes singly" and recent events seem 
to verify it. Mr. David Redwine, an octogenenan of this place, and a pioneer of 
this county, lost a good dwelling house by fire a few weeks ago, which, as there 
was no insurance, was an entire loss. I might add a big loss financially; and now 
Trip is sick, nigh unto death. Trip is not a large dog, but Mr. R prizes him just 
as highly as if he were ever so large. Mr. Redwine is 81 years old, and some few 
years ago when Trip was in the prime of canine life, Mr. R believing that he 
would precede Trip to the "unknown beyond," made a will; the "last will and 
testament" as it were, in which he devised and set apart $20 for the benefit of this 
intelligent rat-killer, but today it looks as if Trip would shuffle off this mortal coil 
first, as Uncle Dave, as Mr. R is familiarly called, is hale and hearty. Should trip 
not rally from his present illness it would be a sad blow to Uncle Dave, as they 
have been inseparable companions for many years.

76 Chapter 8 Mary Heady 



The Noblesville Democrat had the following article in the 25 Mar 1894 



.592 



Trip, a little dog belonging to Mr. David Redwine and a close companion of the 
old gentleman's for more than a dozen years, was killed by the cars last Saturday. 

So David Redwine was able to enjoy the company of Trip for another five years.

Redwine was a corporal.*"^ 



Chapter 8 Mary Heady 77 



James Redwine was not wounded in the war. but died of a gunshot inflicted while at a 
turkey shoot 24 Dec 1875. The circumstances of his death were reported on page 1 of 
the Noblesville Ledger, 31 Dec 1875: 

A shooting match was held at Lowry's Woods, about one mile and a half below Fisher's 
Station, Friday of last week, which was largely attended by people in the neighborhood. 
The shooting was for Uirkeys, and a considerable interest seemed to be manifested by the 
participants. In the forenoon everything passed off quietly, and until between one and two 
o'clock, when a dispute arose between two men named Dick Parsley and James Redwine. 
both living in the vicinity, as to a shot that had just been made; examining the board 
Parsly claimed a shot as the one he had just made, which Redwine insisted was made in 
the forenoon. The mis-understanding grew into a violent quarrel which ended in the two 
disputants, clinching each other, when Parsly drew a revolver, and while they were 
scuffling shot, twice in succession, and then after a second's intermission a third time, 
the last shot taking effect in the stomach of Redwine, when they separated. Redwine 
declaring that he was fatally shot, was taken by his father toward his residence, which 
was only a few yards away... The suffering man lingered until Samrday morning at ten 
o'clock, when his injuries proved fatal... Parsly remained in the neighborhood for a few 
hours, when he disappeared, and at present writing has not been heard from. A warrant 
for his arrest was issued after he left, from the court of Esquire Cropper, and since then 
another has gone from Coroner Loehr. 

In March of 1876, Parsley was arrested for the murder of James Redwine.*" He was 
found guilty and sentenced to two years in the penitentiary.*'^ 

Nancy Redwine was found in the 1880 U.S. census for Hamilton County, Indiana with 
five children.*'^ These are the known children of James and Nancy Redwine: 

i. George* W., b. ca. 1868 prob. in Hamilton Co., IN, died a young man

County, Kansas/*^ He is buried in East Hill Cemetery in Neosho County, Kansas/** 
Andrew Jackson Heady never married, but he did have an illegitimate son by a woman 
named Lucy Pearce.*^-^ Lucy Pearce was born about 1826 in North Carolina. Her father 
was Elijah Pearce and her mother's given name was Celia/** 

Andrew Jackson Heady was less than six years old when his father died. Census records 
show him living with his mother in the 1850 and 1860 U.S. censuses for Hamilton 
County, Indiana (see Chapter 1). Although the 1830 and 1840 censuses don't name 
anyone other than head of household, he is assumed to be living with his mother those 
years also. His obituary in the Neosho County Record (Saturday, 16 Mar 1878) states, 
he went to work "...not only maintaining his widowed mother in comfort during the 
whole of her life, but accumulated a handsome competency for his declining years. " 

He must have been a successful businessman because he bought and sold land on several 
occasions. These are recorded in the Hamilton County Deed Books between 1850 and 
1870. His occupation is farmer in 1850 and 1860 and he owns land in both censuses. As 
was noted in Chapter 9, he was the guardian of Nancy Heady after the death of Thomas 
Heady and he was the executor of Thomas Heady 's estate. 

After the death of his mother, he moved to Neosho County, Kansas, where he bought 
160 acres of land 17 Apr 1869.^^^ Additional land purchases were made in 1869 and 
1870.*** He appears in the 1875 Kansas State census for Neosho County. *"*' Enumerated 
with him is Jno Leach, 52. Andrew Jackson Heady declares that he paid $50 in wages 
and has 50 acres planted in corn and 2 in oats. He farmed this land until his death. 

The only known child of Andrew Jackson Heady is: 

48 i. Afred^ Tennyson, b. 31 Mar 1844; m. Martha Elisabeth Castetter.

48. Alfred^ Tennyson Heady (Andrew^, James') was born 31 Mar 1844, probably in 
Hamilton County, Indiana.^^" He died 23 Aug 1891 in Neosho County, Kansas, and is 
buried in East Hill Cemetery, Neosho County, Kansas/^' His mother was Lucy Pearce, 
as explained above. He married 18 Oct 1871 Martha Elisabeth Castetter,*^^ daughter 
of Michael and Sarah EUsabeth [Heady] Castetter (see Chapter 13 for this family). 
Martha Castetter was born 12 Feb 1855 probably in Hamilton County, Indiana and died 
13 May 1938 in Neosho County, Kansas."^' 

Alfred T. Heady lived his early life with his mother and her family in Morgan County, 
Indiana. His name during his youth was Alfred Verlin Pearce. This family is found in 
the 1850 U.S. census for Morgan County, IN, dwelling 443:

The two children, Verlin and Jane, are too young to be Celia' s. We know from the 
evidence above that Verlin is Lucy's child. Jane could be either Millie's or Lucy's. 
There is a family in Hamilton County, Indiana, in the 1840 census whose head is Elijah 
Pearce. **• The Hamilton County family bears some resemblance to the Morgan County 
family, but there are some discrepancies. In the 1840 Hamilton County family there are 
two males, one 10-15, and one 60-70. There are also two females, one 15-20 and one 
60-70. The male 15-20 could be Elisha and the female 15-20 could be either Millie or 
Lucy. The discrepancies are the ages of the older man and woman and the missing 
female. Elijah and Celia can't be 60-70 in 1840 and then 65 and 63 in 1850. Possibly the 
census taker made a mistake and the Pearce couple in Hamilton County were only 50-60. 



The 1860 U.S. census for Morgan County, Indiana, has the following family:

Alf V. Pierce 17 Indiana 

Alfred V. Pierce enlisted in Company K, 1st Heavy Artillery Battery, on 6 Jul 1861. 
He was discharged on 31 Jul 1864.*'" His service record shows he is 5' 10" tall, fair 
complexion, blue eyes, and brown hair. He enlisted as a Private and was promoted to 
Corporal on 1 Nov 1863. 

It IS his Civil War service that provides the connection between Alfred Verlin 
Pierce/Pearce and Alfred Tennyson Heady. After his death, Martha Heady applied for 
a widows pension. In her application she states "...he was known as 'Pearce' before his 
enlistment and service, that being his mother's name. My husband being an illegit child 
of Andrew J. Heady, and after the war, his father recognized him and he took his true 
name before I and he were married".*'^ 

During his service, Alfred Pierce/Heady was wounded on two occasions, according to 
his pension record. He returned to duty on each occasion after recovery. He entered the 
service as a private and was promoted to corporal, the rank he held when discharged. 
Following his discharge, the officers of his company sent a letter to Oliver P. Morton, 
Governor of Indiana, that said in part:"'* 

We the commissioned officers of the 1st Indiana Arty take pleasure in recommending him 
as a sober, moral, and upright man in every respect. And should he desire to again enter 
the service, we cheerfully recommend him . . . 

After the Civil War, Alfred Heady went to Hamilton County. In the 1870 U.S. census 
he is living with Elisabeth Heady, the widow of Perry Heady (see Chapter 12 for Perry 
Heady), in Delaware Township, p. 49, dwelling 36. His occupation is listed as medical 
student. After he mamed Martha Elizabeth Castetter, who was his first cousin once 
removed, they moved to Neosho County, Kansas, for a short time and lived with his 
father Andrew."'' Their first child, Charles Darwin Heady, was born in Kansas. But 
Kansas at this time didn't suit them and they moved back to Hamilton County, Indiana. 
That is where their second child was born in 1874. 

Having a family apparently was not compatible with training to be a doctor, because 
Alfred became a farmer. He was a charter member of Hamilton Lodge, No. 533, 



88 Chapter 10 Andrew Jackson Heady 



A.F.&A.M. It was first organized 11 Feb 1876 and the charter was granted 22 May 
1877.™ Two other charter members were B. P. Castetter and Jacob Castetter, both of 
whom married Heady women. The close relationship of the Castetter and Heady families 
of Hamilton County is discussed in Chapter 13. 

On 7 Mar 1878, Alfred's father, Andrew Jackson Heady, died in Neosho County, 
Kansas.™' On 13 Mar 1878 the Probate Judge for Neosho County appointed Henry 
Lodge special administrator for A. J. Heady 's estate until it could be determined who 
the heir(s) were. On the 15th of Apr 1878, A. T. Heady appeared in Neosho County 
court and showed that he was the only surviving son of A. J. Heady. ™^ Thereupon, the 
court appointed him administrator of A. J. Heady's estate. Alfred and Martha Heady 
moved to Neosho County, Kansas, and lived there the rest of their lives.

The life of Fred and Edith George was summarized in an obituary to Fred George 

Fred and Edith George were farmers. Somehow, through good years and lean 
years, they managed to give their large family all the comforts and some of the 
luxuries of life. They did it without complaining. They did it because they loved 
their children and because they were willing to work - and work hard. 

During their long years of marriage and the hard times they must have 
endured in rearing this fine family, Fred and Edith George received no special 
acclaim for wealth, power, or great achievement. 

That is if you don't consider as success that they provided well for a large 
family, earned the deep love of their children and their children's children, and 
had the satisfaction of seeing those children return home on frequent visits just 
because they wanted to be with their parents

Sarah Heady 



11. Sarah- Ann Heady (James'), was born about 1822, probably in what became 
Hamilton County, Indiana. She probably died between 1866 when her mother's estate 
was settled and the 1870 U.S. census, when her family is living in Neosho County, 
Kansas. She married 3 Mar 1842 Henry EUer in Hamilton County, Indiana.'"''' The 
Henry Eller family is found in Delaware Township., Hamilton County, Indiana, census 
in both 1850 and 1860.^^ Then in 1870, the family is living in Neosho County, 
Kansas.^'*'* But Sarah is not listed. 

Henry Eller was born in Ohio about 1821, based on census information.'''** His death has 
not been found. Neither has it been possible to determine who his parents were. The 
Eller name was prominent in Delaware Township during the period covered. Probates 
of possible parents of Henry Eller were examined, but he was not included. 

Henry Eller was a farmer and apparently a successfuel one. The table on the following 
page shows the agriculture census for 1850 and 1860 for Henry Eller. As can be seen, 
all categories measured improved. Why did he leave Indiana for Kansas and what 
happened to Sarah Ann? 

Children of Henry and Sarah Eller are:

Henry Eller married second 19 Apr 1877 America Wise in Neosho County, Kansas. ^'^'^ 
She was born about 1829 in Indiana, daughter of Peter and Elisabeth Wise.^"^^ She was 
the widow of Hiram Rocker, the son of James I. and Betsy Ann Rooker.^" They had 
both lived in Delaware Township, Hamilton County, Indiana, prior to coming to Kansas. 
In the 1850 census for Delaware Township, Hamilton County, Indiana, the Rookers and 
Wises are neighbors, living in dwellings 67 and 70. The Henry EUers live in dwelling 
94. 

Henry and America Eller had one child: 

i. George N., b. ca. 1871 in Neosho Co., KS."' 

One interesting observation about the Eller and Rooker families is that Hiram Rooker 
officiated at the weddings of several of the Eller children. This indicates a close 
relationship of these families. 

The Henry Eller family has not been found after the 1880 census.

Perry Heady 



12. Perry- Heady (James^ ) ,w2ls born 8 Mar 1826 in Hamilton County, Indiana, and died 
30 Apr 1864 in Hamilton County. ^'^ He is buried in the Heady Cemetery in Hamilton 
County. He married 10 Aug 1848 Elizabeth Castetter,^'^" born about 1827, probably in 
Marion County, Indiana.^*' She died before 11 Feb 1874, probably in Hamilton County, 
Indiana.^" She is assumed to be the daughter of Peter and Molly Castetter.^*'' 

Perry was a farmer. In the 1850 census he is living in Delaware Township next to his 
brother James and has no land. Then in the 1860 census, he is living in Noblesville 
Township and declared real estate valued at $3000.^^ In the 1870 census. Perry is dead 
and Elizabeth is in Delaware Township and has $1360 in real estate.^*^"^ The 1870 
Agricultural Census for Delaware Township shows Elizabeth Heady with 18 acres 
improved and 16 acres unimproved. She has grown 69 bushels of wheat, 175 bushels of 
corn, and 20 bushels of potatoes. The only male old enough to work the farm in her 
household is Alfred T. Heady, Andrew Jackson's son (Chapter 10). He is listed as a 
medical student. 

One interesting thing about Perry Heady is that on 20 Jul 1857 he took an apprentice 
named Howard Huffman.^^^ This apprentice was to live with him until 26 May 1861 and 
Perry was to provide him with food, clothing, shelter, and an education. Howard 
Huffman does not appear in the Perry Heady household in the 1860 census and nothing 
further has been seen concerning this arrangement. Apprenticeships were common in the 
early days, but this is the only one I found in my Indiana research. 

Elizabeth Heady sold 33 acres of land in Section 30 T18 R5 to Benjamin P. Castetter 

on 18 Aug 1872.^*'' So when she died in 1874, she owned no land. Elizabeth left a will 
leaving each of her three surviving children the following specific bequest:^** 

Dorothy, one bed and bedstead complete. 
Amanda, one bed and bedstead complete. 
Joseph P., in lieu of a bed, two covers and fifty dollars.

98 Chapter 12 Perry Heady 



The remainder of her estate was to be divided equally among the three children. Each 
child received $540.01. Charles W. Heady was her executor and became the guardian 
of her children.

County, Indiana.™ She married Benjamin L. Frazer on 18 Aug 1878 in Hamilton 
County, Indiana.'^' It is believed he was born about 1856, the son of William and Mary 
Frazer. The census records are somewhat confusing regarding this family and other 
records searched did not clear up the matter. 

It is true that William and Mary Frazer had a son Benjamin L. who is 4 in 1860 and 14 
in 1870.^^'^ William Frazer is dead in 1870. Mary and her children are living next to 
Elizabeth and her children. Then the 1880 census for the Lindsay Frazer family is as 
shown in the following table.

1880 US CENSUS for LINDSAY FRAZER FAMILY 
Name Age Birthplace 

Frazer, Benjamin L. 30 IN 

Dortha 27 IN 

Mertie L. 5 IN 

Benjamin should be 24 if he is William and Mary's son. Of course he could be some 
other Benjamin L. Frazer. But Dortha is 23 and Mertie is one. We know Mertie' s age 
for two reasons. First, Benjamin and Dorotha were married in 1878 and, second the 
Ledger, 5 Sep 1879, announced that "Lindsay Frazier is made happy... a girl baby."''*' 
In 1900, it is stated that Dorotha is the mother of two children. 

The 1900 census doesn't help either. Lindsay is 54 (should be 44)and DoUie is 38 
(should be 43).''*^ Their son Ora is shown born in Apr 1882, but the Hamilton County 
birth record shows his birth occurring 2 Feb 1883.''*"^

County, Indiana.''^ Heady Family Information, p. 1 1 , states that Joseph Perry was raised 
in St. Mary's, Missouri, and that he later returned to Hamilton County. Nothing has been 
learned of his life before 1890, except that there is a Joseph Heady living with Anthony 
Hamble in Jefferson County, KS, in the 1880 census. ^^^ Anthony Hamble was married 
to Mary Alice Heady (see Chapter 5). This Joseph Heady is 15 and could be the son of 
Perry and Elizabeth. Joseph Heady, son of Perry and Elizabeth, is Mary Alice [Heady] 
Hamble's cousin once removed. 

On 11 Nov 1891, Joseph Perry Heady and Bertha Steve were married in St. Louis, 
Missouri.^'' Then, on 24 Sep 1897, the Hamilton County Ledger carried this story on 
page 10: "NEW BRITTON Mrs. Dolly Frazer has her brother's children with her now, 
their mother having recently died in St Louis." 

Children of Joseph Perry and Bertha [Steve] Heady are:

of Charles D. and Kate [Davidson] Hadley. Harold Heady 's occupation was 
ice cream maker. **"' 



On 20 Feb 1899, Joseph Perry Heady and Nannie K. Bracken were married in 
Indianapolis. ^"^^ She was the daughter of F. M. Bracken. Her mother's maiden name was 
Manship. At the time of the marriage, Nannie Bracken had a child, Thehna Bracken, 
who was born in 1895.^°^ 

After their marriage they moved to St. Louis Missouri where they are recorded in the 
1900 U.S. census. However, their first child was born in Indiana. Maybe Nannie went 
to be with her mother during childbirth. Their other children were born in Missouri. 

Joseph Heady died before April 1912. No death record nor will has been found. But he 
is shown in the 1911 St. Louis Directory. But in the 1912 Directory Nannie Heady is 
listed as widow. The effective date of the directory is April. ^'^

Peter and Molly Castetter 



Peter' Castetter was born about 1788 in Pennsylvania based on census information. He 
died after 1860/'° He married Mary M. (Molly) Rumple 8 Apr 1819 in Butler Co., 
Ohio.*" She was born 13 May 1797 in North Carolina, and died 16 Nov 1859.^'^ Mary 
Castetter is buried in Beaver Cemetery in Hamilton County. The grave of Peter Castetter 
has not been located.*''' Five of Peter and Molly Castetter's children married descendants 
of James and Dorotha Heady. The Castetters were in Butler County, Ohio, before they 
moved to Indiana, as were James and Dorotha Heady.*'" It is not known whether they 
were acquainted in Ohio. While the Headys moved to Jackson County, Indiana, and then 
to Hamilton County, the Castetters moved to Marion County, Indiana, first. 

Peter Castetter bought 69 acres of land in Lawrence Township.. Marion County, Indiana, 
on 15 Oct 1821 from the Federal Government.*''^ The record of this purchase shows him 
a resident of Butler County, Ohio. He developed and lived on this land until 1837. He 
was a Justice of the Peace in Marion County so he must have been an educated man . 

In 1836, he bought 160 acres in Fall Creek Township., Hamilton County, Indiana, for 
$625.*'* Then in 1837, he sold his Marion County property for $1000 to Mark Day.*'^ 
Molly Castetter signed with a mark.

Indiana/*^ He married 31 Aug 1854, in Hamilton County, Lucretia^ Redwine,^^* 
daughter of Frederick and Elisabeth' [Heady] Red wine (see chapter 3). Lucretia was 
born about 1836 probably in Hamilton County, Indiana, and died 8 Apr 1895 at New 
Britton, Hamilton County, Indiana.^*' She is said to be buried in the Heady Cemetery, 
but her tombstone was not found. 

Jacob and Lucretia Castetter lived in Fall Creek Township, Hamilton County. They are 
recorded in the 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses. **° Several Hamilton County families 
moved to Kansas and in August, 1878, J. M. Castetter, Henry Redwine, and Winfield 
Alfrey were considering a move as well.^^^' A Jacob Castetter died in Neosha County, 
Kansas, 23 Mar 1881.^'^^ No corroboration has been found that this is the Jacob Castetter 
that married Lucretia Redwine. But the age is right. He is 51 years, 5 months and 14 
days old at death. This would make the birth date of this Jacob Castetter 9 Nov 1829, 
which agrees with the age on censuses for Lucretia's husband. The Republican Ledger 
(Noblesville, Indiana) reports on July 31, 1885, that "Mrs. Lucretia Castetter has rented 
the Osborn farm now owned by C. L. Young." This indicates Jacob Castetter is gone.

battle of Chickamauga, 20 Sep 1863. His Captain, Mahlon H. Floyd, spoke highly of 
him and his contributions during the war."'"* 

On returning from the war, Michael Castetter continued his occupation as a farmer. He 
was quite successful in this occupation, but he branched out into other activites in later 
years. He is reported to be clearing ground for a brickyard in June of 1883 and in 
September is reported to be retiring from the grocery business."'"^ 

During 1883, Michael Castetter had a new house built in Fisher's Station, Hamilton 
County, Indiana."'^ But on Monday night, 10 Dec 1883, Michael Castetter died of a heart 
attack. His obituary describes his last hours as the doctor sat with him unable to do more

Notes and References 



A number of reference sources are used frequently. To save space and make these 
references easier to read, they are abbreviated in the end notes. The full reference for 
each abbreviated reference is given below. A number of record repositones were visited 
to obtain the information cited. These include libraries, Historical Societies, and Court 
Houses. 

Libraries 

By far the most used repository was the LDS Family History Library, in Salt Lake City, 
Utah, either through visits to Salt Lake City or by renting microfilm to read at a local 
Family History Center. Where this repository is the source, it will be abbreviated FHL. 
Other libraries used include Huntington Beach, California, Public Library; Los Angeles, 
California, Public library; Indiana State Library, Indianapolis, Indiana; and Noblesville- 
Southeastern Library, Noblesville, Indiana. Citations of these libraries will include only 
the name of the city or state and the word "Library," 

Court Houses 

Many court house records have been filmed and are available through the Family History 
Library. When the FHL was the source of the information, it will be so indicated by the 
words "FHL microfilm" followed by a seven digit number. However, during 1993 court 
houses in Kansas and Indiana were visited. If the information is from a court house visit, 
the end note will include the words "Court House." 

Census Records 

Census records taken by the United States and by the state of Kansas will be referenced 
by the date, state, county, township, page, and dwelling. For Kansas, the FHL microfilm 
number will be included. 

Newspapers 

Many old newspapers are on microfilm. A lot of the information in this book came from 
these old newspapers that were provided by the Indiana State Library, the Kansas 
Historical Society, the Denver Historical Society, or another similar repository. In the 
citation, the full name and repository will be indicated in all cases but one. The exception 
is the Ledger, a Noblesville Hamilton County, Indiana, newspaper that is the most 
frequently referenced newspaper. It began as a weekly newspaper and is now a daily 
paper in Noblesville. It has always had the name "Ledger" in its title along with other

Vital Records 

In Indiana, marriage records usually began with the formation of the county. But in the 
case of Hamilton County, marriage records begin in 1833. while the county was formed 
in 1823. The marriage records until 1882 consisted of a license to marry, issued by the 
clerk of the court, and a return provided by the person that officiated at the wedding. 
The only information in these records is the names of the participants and the date. A 
few records have no return indicating that no marriage took place or that it was not 
reported. In a few cases, where one or both of the participants was under legal age, a 
note giving permission to marry is attached, usually signed by a parent. In 1882, the 
State required that a marriage application be filled out prior to issuance of a license. This 
application included the parents of the applicants and the place of birth, as well as the 
ages of the applicants. Later, the application included the birth date of the applicants. 
Birth and death records also began in 1882, but many of these events went unrecorded 
in the early years. 

Cemeteries 

Inscriptions from cemeteries are used for births and deaths for a number of persons. Two 
cemeteries were personally visited, the Heady Cemetery in Fishers, Indiana and the 
Crown Point Cemetery in Kokomo, Indiana. The results of the survey of these cemeteries 
is given in Appendix III. Many cemeteries in Hamilton County, Howard County, and 
Tipton County have been surveyed by a number of persons and organizations. Results 
of these surveys are in the local libraries. It should be noted that some dates on 
tombstones, although carved in stone, have been found to be wrong. Where dates are 
suspect, it will be noted. Frequent cemetery abbreviations are as follows: 

Heady Cemetery Inscriptions: See Appendix III. 

Crown Point Cemetery Inscriptions: See Appendix III. 

Highland Cemetery Inscriptions: This cemetery is in Fall Creek Township. Three 
cemeteries, the Beaver, the Gustin, and the New Gustin, were combined in the early 
1900s and were incorporated as the Highland cemetery. Records are in custody of the 
Nobiesville-Southeastern Library, Indiana Reference Room, 977.256. 

Lowery Cemetery Inscriptions: Records are in custody of Nobiesville-Southeastern 
Library, Indiana Reference Room, 977.256.

During the 1930s, the WPA indexed vital records of many Indiana counties. These 
indexes are used frequently. Therefore the reference will simply be WPA Marriage Index 
for Co. (or birth, death, or marriage application).

he is not found on the Kentucky Tax Rolls until 1802, which would have been his twenty 
second year. This would make his birth year 1779 or 1780, assuming he was living in Nelson 
Co., KY, in 1801. Designating Fayette Co., PA, as his place of birth accepts that he is the

"The girl of lawful age. Consent of the parents. As to the man..." There is no return shown, 
so the marriage may not have taken place. There are several versions of this marriage 
application. On one, the female is shown as Polly Beyher. Another shows the female as Polly 
Brugher. The record cited is a microfilm of the original, which is difficult to read. An 
examination of the 1820 census for Harrison Co., IN, shows two Brugger families, but no 
Beyher. So I have chosen to use the name Brugher. Another marriage took place in Harrison

administration were issued to N. Chapman on 19 Mar 1864 (Hamilton, IN, Order Book of 
Estates - Vacation Entries, Mar 1860 - Aug 1878, p. 65). Also the 1850 and 1860 censuses 
show him to be 7 and 17 years old respectively, which is compatible with an August 1842 
birth date. Therefore, the dates shown are assumed correct.

year as well, which they reported as 1862 in The Heady Family Newsletter, v. I, No. 6, p. 

16. This year is confirmed by letters of administration granted to Michael Castetter on 11 Mar 
1862. In 1982 when read by the Corrells and in 1993 when we read the inscriptions, this 
tombstone was broken so the year could not be read. But the age at death was readable and a 
rubbing was made. It was 50y 9m lid.

Her birth date is from "Declaration for Widow's Pension" dated 25 Sep 1863, wherein she is 
stated to be 26 years old. Her death is recorded in "Pension for Minor Children," in Isaiah 
Brook's pension papers. Heady Cemetery inscription is inconsistent with the pension papers 
and the 1860 and 1870 censuses. In that inscription age at death is shown as 44 years, but 34 
years is more consistent with other facts, therefore her age at death is assumed to be 34 years 
25 days.

Castetter. However, there is a female the correct age living in the Castetter household in the 
1830 and the 1840 censuses. Also there is a gap between of Sarah (b. 1824) and Jacob (b. 
1830) where Elizabeth, who was born in 1827, fits. Nevertheless, other researchers of the 
Castetter family don't include Elizabeth as a child of Peter and Molly. Still, I believe 
Elizabeth is part of that family and she is included in it in chapter 13.

Appendix I 
James Heady's Ancestors 



In Chapter 1, it was claimed that James Heady was the son of Thomas Heady, Jr.. who 
died in Nelson County , Kentucky, in 1811. Much that is known about Thomas Heady, 
Jr., and his father, Thomas Heady, Sr., is presented in the Heady Family Newsletter} 
This Appendix is a short summary of that information. 

The first Heady Family Newsletter is dated November 1971. It was published by Pat 
Heady Green and her father. Dr. Earl O. Heady. It continued quarterly until the last 
issue, which was published October, 1974. This newsletter has been put on microfiche 
by the Genealogical Society of Utah and can be seen at the Family History Library in 
Utah or at local Family History Centers. I have found that a few pages are missing on 
this microcopy. The Indiana State Library also has this newsletter and I found the 
missing pages in their holdings. We are indebted to Pat Heady Green and Dr. Earl O. 
Heady for the time and effort they put into this project. 

Their history of the Heady family begins with the marriage of Thomas Heady and 
Rebecca Stillwell on 24 June 1749 in New Jersey. The place of this wedding is shown 
as Egg Harbor, New Jersey, in die Heady Family Newsletter. Others have placed it in 
Jersey City. The antecedents of Thomas Heady are not known, but evidence of other 
Headys in New Jersey, Connecticut, and in the South can be found. The Heady Family 
Newsletter followed the progeny of Thomas and Rebecca. This Appendix will summarize 
what the newsletter published about the families of Thomas Heady, Sr. and his son 
Thomas Heady, Jr., who are claimed to be the grandfather and father of the James 
Heady that moved to Hamilton County, Indiana about 1820. Anyone interested in more 
information about the early Headys should consult the original newsletters. 

There is a gap in our knowledge about Thomas and Rebecca Heady between their 
marriage in 1749 and their appearance in records of the Tonoloway settlement in 
Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, in September, 1766 (Extra Issue, October, 1974. p. 
10). When they first moved there is not known, but their departure can be placed as 
about 1769 when Thomas Heady, Sr. and Thomas Heady, Jr. had land surveyed in what

Pennsylvania, for about twenty years. About 1788, Thomas Heady, Sr. sold his land and 
moved to Nelson County, Kentucky. Thomas Heady, Jr. remained in Pennsylvania until 
about 1791 when he sold his land in Fayette County. Thomas Heady, Jr., appears in the 
1790 U.S. census for Fayette County, Pennsylvania. In 1792, he is in the Nelson 
County, Kentucky, tax rolls.

Appendix II 
Heady Family History 

by 
Martha Castetter Heady 

recorded by 
Freeda George Pierce 



In 1938, Martha Castetter Heady of Neosho County, Kansas, told her granddaughter, 
Freeda George Pierce, what she knew about the descendants of James and Dorotha 
Heady. Freeda George Pierce typed what she heard and gave copies to various persons 
interested in the Heady family. One copy was given to Sheryl Johnson, the wife of James 
Johnson, a direct descendant of James and Dorotha Heady. James Johnson is the great 
grandson of Alfred Tennyson Heady and Martha Castetter Heady, and the grandson of 
Fred George and Edith Heady. Sheryl Johnson made a copy for me and gave me 
permission to include this information in my book. 

Martha Castetter Heady and Freeda George Pierce have done a great service to those of 
us who would like to learn more of the history of our ancestors. Records about those of 
us who are not in the lime light are few and sometimes difficult to find. It would be very 
helpful if more persons would take the time to record what they know about their family. 

Every effort has been made to record the rememberances of Martha Castetter Heady 
exactly as they were recorded. The copy given to me was scanned into my word 
processor. However, the copy was imperfect and some words were not easy for my 
computer to interpret. So I had to make corrections, which may have resulted in some 
errors. Also, the type style available to me was not exactly like that in the original. 
Within these restrictions, I believe this to be as true a reproduction as possible. 

Some of the information presented in this appendix may not agree with that in the book. 
The differences are recognized, but the book version is as near correct as possible. 
Sources are cited, but it must be realized that no source is one hundred percent reliable. 
The amount of information supplied by Martha Castetter Heady is phenomenal. Her 
memory may not completely agree with what my research has found, but that is a small 
matter considering the shear volume of facts she supplied. We can only pray that our 
memories will be that good when we are 83.

176 Appendix II Heady History 



HEADY FAMILY 



James Heady Sr. was bom in the 170O's in Kentucky. He had 8 brothers but they all 
scattered, don't know who or where any of them are. James settled in Indiana, but don't know if 
before or after his marriage to Dorothy Harvey who was bom in Vermont around 1790. They had 
eleven children. James Jr., Lewis, Mark, Thomas, Charles, Vincent, Perry, Jackson, Mary, 
Elizabeth, and Sara Ann. James Sr. and wife Dorothy are buried in the Heady Cemetery in 
Indiana. 

Jackson Heady son of James Heady Sr. was bom October 13, 1821. He and Lucy Pearce 
(The mother of Aunt Jennie Thomas who lived in Iowa) had one child Alfred. Seems as though 
the Pearce's were somewhat well to do and they forbade their daughter to marry Jackson. I don't 
know who raised Alfred but Jackson came to Kansas in the 1800's and never married. He is 
buried in the Erie Cemetery, I think it is listed as Andrew Jackson Heady. 

Alfred followed later but returned to Indiana where he met Martha Castetter. In a letter he 
wrote from Indiana to Kansas - "1 have met a wonderful girl and hope to marry her. You know 
in this day and age one can't be too careful." (I guess each generation thinks the same thing) 

Alfred was bom March 31, 1844 and married Martha Castetter bom Feb. 12, 1855. She 
was the daughter of Sarah Elizabeth Heady Castetter which made them second cousins. They had 
1 1 children. Alfred studied medicine for a short while but did not get to finish. 

Just how Grandmother Heady became the best of friends with Aunt Jennie Thomas in Iowa 
I never found out as she passed away in May of 1938, she gave me, Freeda George Pierce, the 
Heady history in February of 1938. Now there are several questions unanswered. 

Grandmother said some thought the Heady 's formally spelled their name Heddy but she 
didn't know or if so how far back it had changed. 

Liddie George, 2nd wife of Wesley Heady, son of James Heady Sr., was related to the 
George's in Erie. The Georges came from Indiana and settled in Erie just north of the old high 
school and had a farm, in fact the land in that area of Erie is known as the George Addition. My 
great Grandfather George helped Grandmother Heady in many ways after Grandfather died. He 
gave her the land where she built her home on North Main. Grandmother said he was a real 
friend indeed. Aunt Pearl use to tell how nice lie was to all the kids. I can just barely remember 
him. As you know they came to Kansas went back to Indiana then returned to Kansas and stayed. 
Uncle Jim use to say "I was conceived in Iowa, bom in Indiana and raised in Kansas. " 

Wiat a mind Grandmother had. None of this was written she just gave it to me as I wrote.

APPENDIX III 
CEMETERY INSCRIPTIONS 



Inscriptions from several cemeteries in Indiana, and a cemetery in Neosho, Kansas, have 
been cited in a number of end notes. Two cemeteries were visited by the author and his 
wife in the summer of 1993. These were the Heady Cemetery m Fishers, Hamilton 
County, Indiana, and the Crown Point Cemetery in Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana. 
Inscriptions from headstones of Headys or related families were recorded. The results 
of those visits are recorded in the pages that follow. In end notes, information derived 
from these two cemeteries are referred to by Heady Cemetery Inscriptions and Crown 
Point Cemetery Inscriptions. 

Many, if not all, cemeteries in Hamilton County have been surveyed over a period of 
years and the records of these surveys are in the custody of the Noblesville-Southeastern 
Library in Noblesville, Indiana (ref. 977.256). The inscriptions from these surveys, as 
well as the two mentioned above were used to provide birth and death information in 
some cases. In the footnotes, these cemetery inscriptions will be referred to by the name 
of the cemetery. The author has copied inscriptions of the cemeteries referenced. The 
reader can obtain verification from the Noblesville-Southeastern Library. An explanation 
is in order for one of the references. The Highland Cemetery in Fall Creek Township 
was originally three cemeteries that have been combined. In the text, the name of the 
original cemetery is used (Beaver, Gustin, or New Gustin), but the end note will read 
"Highland Cemetery inscriptions" because that is the name of the survey in the library. 

Another cemetery that is referenced, primarily in chapter 10, is the East Hill Cemetery 
in Erie County, Kansas. Inscriptions from this cemetery were published by the Chanute 
Kansas Genealogical Society. Copies referred to are in custody of the Los Angeles Public 
Library, Los Angeles, Califormia, and the Carlsbad Public Library, Carlsbad, California. 
This reference is also available on microfilm from the Family History Library in Salt 
Lake City, Utah.

192 Appendix III Cemetery Inscriptions 



HEADY CEMETERY. HAMILTON COUNTY. INDIANA 



The Heady Cemetery is located in Fishers, Delaware Township, Hamilton County, 
Indiana. It is on property formerly owned by Dorotha Heady. Inscriptions from this 
cemetery have been published on two previous occasions that I am aware of. The first 
was in 1972 by Ted and Kathy Humbles in The Heady Newsletter? The second was in 
the 1980s by James and Velma Correll. The Corrells surveyed many of the cemeteries 
in Hamilton County. Their published surveys can be found in the Noblesville- 
Southeastern Library. The listing of inscriptions that follows is the result of three visits 
to the Heady Cemetery in June and July of 1993 by my wife and myself. 

Our intent was to confirm the previous readings and resolve several discrepancies 
between them. We used three methods to bring out the inscriptions. First, we used 
shaving cream to enhance the inscriptions that were hard to read. Second, we 
photographed a number of the tombstones, both in color and in black and white. Third 
we made rubbings of a number of the tombstones that were either difficult to read or 
where there was a discrepancy between the previous surveys or between their survey and 
ours. 

We found several foundations without tombstones, suggesting that some were missing. 
A resident living near the cemetery said that he and some other residents had found a 
number of tombstones stacked in a corner of the cemetery and that they had replaced 
them. The Corrells report in the preface to their readings that "natives of the area tell us 
that many of the gravestones of the cemetery are missing and are presumed to have been 
thrown into the lake during the development and construction of this area. " 

The Humbles published primarily the Heady names and did not include the complete 
inscription. Both the Humbles and Corrells did not include one or two inscriptions that 
we found. Of particular interest was that of James Heady, Jr., which was on the opposite 
side of the tombstone bearing his wife's name (Polly). One tombstone was recorded by 
the Humbles that was not found by the Corrells or by us. This was that of George W. 
Heady, son of Calvin and Nancy. This inscription is shown separately at the beginning 
of the listing, because it was the only one that was previously recorded but was not 
currently present. 

There were a number of persons said to have been buried in the Heady Cemetery in their 
obituary whose tombstones were not found. There were also some small stones with 
initials on them that we did not include in our recording. We assume these to be 
footstones. In several cases the initials are the same as a name on an adjacent tombstone. 
In other cases the initials are illegible. 

To locate the Heady Cemetery, drive north on Allisonville road from 116th street. Go

custody of Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, 929.27305/H345h.

past the entrance to the River Glen Golf Course about half a mile to the entrance to the 
Sunblest Estates at Orchard Blvd. Turn right and go to Heady Lane (one long block) and 
turn right again. The cemetery is located in a wooded area about 100 yards south of the 
intersection of Lake Vista Drive and Heady Lane. It is along the side of Lake Vista. 
There is a fence around the cemetery and the gate is locked. The Delaware Township 
Trustee has the key to the gate. 

The location of the grave sites is shown by a row and a number. The rows are numbered 
in the same order as that used by the Corrells. The rows, however, are not perpendicular 
to the fence, as shown in the map on the next page. Also the grave sites are not in neat 
columns, or rows, so the numbering system used by the Corrells has been abandoned. 
Instead, the grave sites are numbered sequentially from the top left hand corner to the 
bottom. The map does not present an exact depiction of the location of the graves. The 
rows are not as straight and the relation of one grave to those near by is not exact. The 
map was drawn by hand while standing in the cemetery. Then it was transferred to a 
limited computer program. Still, the map does show the layout of the graves within these 
limitations. 

In the table that follows, normal type is the inscription as read. Bold type is to emphasize 
that the inscription is different from that found by the Corrells, All comments are in 
italics, including calculated births. To calculate births, actual number of days in months 
were used, including 29 days for February in leap years. We have found that in another 
cemetery months were assumed to have 30 days. It is possible that this method was used 
in this cemetery, which would make our birth dates off by a day or two. Several 
genealogical reference books were consulted to find an authority on the accepted method 
for calculating age at death. None of the references discussed the subject. 

Marker number 61 is a statue without a head. It is of sandstone and may have had an 
inscription on it at one time. Several unsuccessful attempts were made at raising an 
inscription by the rubbing method. This monument is not included in the table, but is 
shown on the map.

CROWN POINT CEMETERY. HOWARD COUNTY .INDIANA 



The Crown Point Cemetery is in Kokomo, Indiana. It is the main cemetery for the city 
and is currently being surveyed by the local genealogical society. At the time of our visit, 
the survey had not progressed to the point where the Heady and related burials were 
surveyed. So we obtained the location of those burial sites and visited the sites. 
Photographs and rubbings were obtained of the Heady and related monuments. The 
following table summarizes the results of that survey.
