Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1854
Walnut Township
Bates County
Missouri, USA
Death: Dec. 31, 1886
Santa Fe County
New Mexico, USA

Barbara Ellen Hankins, named after her mother, Barbara Ellen Davidson/Davison m Roland Hankins was born in Walnut Township, Bates County Missouri. She was the oldest born to Barbara and Roland but had three half sisters and a half brother. Her sisters are Amanda Jane m Henry Clay Lutz, Nancy Ethel m 1) William Baker m 2) John William Hankins, her first cousin, Roland Jr. m Clara Olive James, George Washington m Nora Hopper and James Pleasanton m Sarah Hopper, sister to Nora. Her half sisters were Malinda Ann m William Jasper Beavers, Harriet Jane m Albert W. Spargur Jr., Mary Elizabeth m Julian Bedford Pequette and James Ulysses m Mary P. Peggar (full sister to Julian, just took different spelling of last name)
Barbara's half siblings were also her cousins, as their mother was sister to her mother and first wife of Roland Hankins.
Barbara Ellen Hankins Carter moved from Missouri into Kansas around the time her parents moved to Sumptner Co Ks. but can be found in Bates County census of 1860 and 1870 which verifies her birth year as 1854 instead of what her headstone indicates of 1852.
In the 1875 census of Montgomery County Kansas, Coffeyville, you will find her residing with her husband Daniel Carter and son Daniel Roland Carter. In the civil war records of Daniel Carter it gives his birth year as 1835, however census puts it about 1837. I tend to focus on military records.
When the Indian war broke out Daniel Carter packed up his family and moved to Glorieta, New Mexico and homesteaded in 1885. Their son Daniel Roland Carter told his daughter Lucy that their was an infant daughter born to them and lived to be 11 days old, only we do not know if she was born in Ks or on way to New Mexico or why Barbara Ellen died at such a young age on 31 Dec 1886.
After she died their son was placed in a boarding home/school and he ran away from their and was taken in by a Spanish family and raised by them.
Daniel Carter died in a vetrans home in Santa Monica, Calif and is buried in Los Angeles National Cemetery.
Son Daniel Roland Carter served in the Spanish American War and is laid to rest in Fairview Cemetery, Albuquerque, New Mexico. He also was a police officer and promised his mother he would be baptized Catholic which makes me believe she knew she was dying at the time she had him promise her this. Could it be that she had a difficult delivery and both she and her daughter died in New Mexico? No grave has been found for the female Carter age 11 days old.
