Year and quarter
Stephen P. Hilderbrand, 3 in family $60.00 Transportation no subsistence
[Do not think that oldest daughter was born yet in 1838 so other person may have been a slave.] They are listed next to Reese T, Mitchell who married Rachel Hildebrand sister of Stephen and it is very possible that they came west together in a small wagon train. It is also possible that Josh Patrick who married Eliza Hildebrand may have also traveled west with them along with other Hildebrand family members.
Stephen P. Hildebrand first married Mary Potts and had two daughters. She died abt.1848 and then he married Mary Beck. He and his second wife had two daughters also. Julia Ann Hildebrand and Susan Cherokee Hildebrand. He went west to Indian Territory now OK with first wife and his sisters and their families in 1839.
He married 2nd in 1851 and moved to Flint Creek and built a Flour mill with Jeremiah Clinton Towers who was married to his wife's aunt Elizabeth Buffington Towers. He did not serve in the Union Army in the Civil War. He stayed on the creek and ran his mill. He died there in 1867 and is probably buried there. There are few grave markers on the Beck-Hildebrand Cem at the Mill.
