|Me ||Thank you so much!|
Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library has a great online genealogy section not sure if you ever use it. but in their Hendricks County Photographs under Cartersburg I think remember seeing the names Owens And Hufford so you may find some pictures there of family. Some are also of the McCormick's not sure if they are your line or mine. They also have a book they use in reference to some of the dates on Hendricks County obits It is called The Hufford Day Planner Not sure if this has a connection to your Hufford line, Also if you have any obit in Hendricks County you need to look up after the 1970 Brownsburg Library obit finder allows you to view and download. I hope this is not redundant information and you find something useful here. Again Thank You for the information.
Have a great day. Lora

That is very intriguing
He is not one in my direct line but I researched a small amount on him. I found him and his wife owning a farm in 1913 with the name The Catersburg Spring water Company. I found this in The Prairie Farms Reliable Directory Farmers and breeders of Hendricks County Indiana 1920. The reason for my intrigue is I have been coming across a lot on this:
With other McCormick's mentioned in the articles But he is the only one that seems to have any real connection. Do you know anything about the springs? or any connection any of the McCormick's May of had to it?_The History of Hendricks County 1914-1976_ has a section on
Cartersburg Magnetic Springs. The chapter begins with this "The story of the
Cartersburg Magnetic Springs has no definitie beginning, of it was
undoubtedly a popular campground in Indian days. Indian relics, flints and
jewelry have been found in many places in the fields of the farm which
was once a part of the land." It later explains that "George Matlock,
Jacob Wagoner, William Ballard and Alexander LIttle in 1882 purchased a
section of the land which included the Magnetic Springs. People came
from far and near to drink the water from teh springs. It was cool, clear
and pure and the pioneers felt it had medicinal qualities.As time
passed, it became a prominent place for picnics and public meetings in the
days following the Civil War. ...Some buildings were built and finally
an inn. By the late 1800s men of the Cartersburg community began to
dream [about having an association to promote a health resort...]. So they
formed the Cartersburg Magnetics Springs Association and bought the
farm. The following men...were involved: Alfred W. Carter, G.V. Seaton,
J.A. Veatch, John Tartlon, Edw. H. Conn, T.A. Prewitt and J.A. Dobyn.

Just curious are you related to this McCormick line. I am coming in at Annie McCormick. She was my Great Grandmother Rev.Samuel McCormick Buried in this Cemetery(Spring Hill)was her Great Grandfather. Always on the outlook for anything that has to do with these McComicks. Thought I would share another article with you on Amos McCormick:The Indianapolis Journal Sunday August 16th 1903
OLDEST LIVING SETTLER
Amos McCormick Came to Connersville the summer of 1820.
He is to be the central figure of the reunion of his family at Fairview.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal. Danville Indiana Aug. 15.At the approaching - reunion of the McCormick family to be held at Fairview Park Aug. 24 undoubtedly one of the central figures of interest will be Amos McCormick, of Cartersburg, this county, who will celebrate his Eighty-fourth birthday Aug. 23. is still as vigorous in mind and body as the average man of sixty. Mr. McCormick is not only one of the pioneers of central Indiana, Oldest living settler of Indianapolis, but enjoys the unique distinction of having once been stolen by the Indians. He was born at Connersville, Aug. 23. I819. He accompanied his father Rev. Samuel McCormick to Indianapolis in the summer of 1820.His father and two brothers, John and James opened up the first road Into what is now the city of Indianapolis during the Winter before, cutting their way through the woods from Rushville to the cast bank of White river, where they arrived I-Feb 26, 1820.Samuel and James helped to build for their brother Johnsí the first cabin on the ground where Indianapolis now stands. There were in this first party from Connersvllle eight besides the three McCormick brothers. All hands immediately on their arrival went to work to put up a. cabin and by night of the First day they arrived the walls were up for the double cabin. Samuel then cleared five acres of ground and in the spring put in a, crop of corn. Then he went back to Connersville after his family and moved them to the new purchase, making his home is one end of the double cabin until he could build a cabin for himself .In the fall of 1821 a strange band of Indians came to Samuels house and demanded something to eat. They were given food by Mrs. McCormick the men being at work some distance away in the thicket. As the Indians left they picked up Amos D., Then about two years old. His mother told them to put the child down, but they shook their heads. Moving on, Paying no attention to Mrs. McCormick's cries . The men heard her. and rushing In the house learned the trouble. Taking their guns they followed the Indians and soon rescued the boy, who after these eighty-two years lives to tell of the occurrence. Several months afterward a band of Indians supposed to be the same came by the McCormick house and presented young Amos with at tomahawk. This almost caused indirectly the death of the little fellow with a playmate he went out In the brush to "cut trees' with his new toy. The father had a fierce cow which was kept In A small enclosure made by high fence. The boys traveled to the far side of the enclosure and wishing to return home they climbed over the fence and short-cut through the pen. The cow made for them. Knocking young Amos down and throwing him in the air again and again. An Irishwoman ran to teII his mother of the trouble. and having some difficulty In making the mother understand the trouble. Several minutes passed before the men could be told and force- the -cow away. The angry animal had torn all the clothing off the boy. Mr. McCormick is undoubtedly the oldest living male resident of Indianapolis. There is a woman living there whom came before him his cousin Mrs. Tabitha Martz of Arcadia she is the daughter of his Uncle John, who built the cabin and who with her twin sister Lavina now dead accompanied her parents to their new home Feb. 1820. Amos has the first dining table ever used in Indianapolis it was brought from Connersville in 1820 the commissioners who were sent by the state to locate the new site of the capital not only ate from this table but did their writing on it in the John McCormick cabin which was a hotel.
You can put on his if you want. If you are related and interested will be happy to send you things as I come Across them. Thank you for your time in posting this family it is much appreciated.

I went ahead and changed the dates to 1838. I will try to do some further research on James but I don't have much hope on finding anything. His parents are in my husband's tree but James isn't.
|Beth Crowe||RE: Ellen Dent (1818 - 1903|
I didn't create the memorial so I'm not sure where the original information came from. I often have trouble distinguishing 3's from 8's in these old stones. Do you think the year could be 1838 and not 1888? Do you live nearby. Is it possible you could go look in person and let me know what the stone says? I can't read it in the photo.
|Michael Gough||RE: Ellen Dent|
Connie, thank you.
|d yancey||RE: Tom Jewell|
He is listed as Ben Jewell also. His full name was Benjamin Thomas. The dates are the same as Tom.
