Hi Joyce,

I'm researching the Frie family and have some questions - I'm confused about a possible second marriage and whether some people are half or full siblings. could you email me? MargaretLcoltman at gmail. Thanks so much!

The correct spelling for Benjamin and Amanda is Peachee. How they got Peachey I am not sure.

RE: Joel Sanders
Thank you for sharing. I'll add it to my records. I can't seem to find anything on George Tomlinson. I know he and Amanda were married only a short time, but I'm still curious about him. I would like to know if he had lived in the area, his family, had they known each other long, and where he's buried. I just haven't been able to come up with anything.

I bought a book for my mom on the history of Jack County at Half-Price Books not long ago. I read it and found a few Rozells and Sanders mentioned. Most were regarding votes and county/town positions.

I hope you and your family have a happy and blessed year.

Joel Sanders and Amanda Rozell are my great great grandparents. Do you have any info on how Joel died?
I can also find nothing on Amanda's second husband George Tomlinson (or Tomlison).
Amanda is buried with her last husband, Benjamin Peachey.
My grandmother had told me stories, but I don't know who they are regarding. One was of a someone falling from the roof, and another was of someone being killed in a wagon accident while trying to go get help (I don't know if for the man who fell from the roof or an entirely different incident).

Louisa A Duckworth-Frie & Martha were sisters
You asked if Louisa had a sister named Martha... Yes, and they are reportedly buried next to each other in now Old Hall Cemetery. I also believe that their brother, Simpson Aaron Duckworth may also be buried there, but have been unable to find a full interment list of those moved when the lake was built to Old Hall Cemetery and/or others that died in that timeframe from the Duckworth family that may have been buried in the old Denton Creek Cemetery before the lake was built and moved to Old Hall Cemetery.

So, yes if you find any info at all on Louisa A Duckworth-Frie and/or her brother Simpson Aaron Duckworth (born ca 1819) and his first wife Martha L (Maiden name unknown) Duckworth (who may have actually died in War Eagle & Walnut Township, Benton, ARK before he located to Lewisville area, but not known or proven where his 1st wife died ca 1859-1860).

My direct email is should you find and have any additional info to share with me re: duckworth.

Simpson Aaron Duckworth born ca 1819 in Hardin County, TN (Louisa & Martha's brother) was my 3rd great grandfather.

RE: Frie
Yes, F M Frie is my great-great grandfather. His daughter Sicily Jane Frie McComas is my great grandmother. Her son John McComas my grandfather. His daughter Mary Margaret McComas Carey my mother.

Who is the son buried next to F M Frie? We may have this information - but I want to verify.

Your Cousin,

Louisa A Duckworth
I noticed on the cemetery you noted that she was married to Frie/Fry and orginally buried at Denton Creek and moved with Lake Lewisville was created.

I think this is likely a sister of my 3rd great grandfather Simpson Aaron Duckworth, Sr and a daughter of my 4th great grandfather Wiley J Duckworth (also father of Simpson Aaron Duckworth, Sr) which would make Louisa and S A Duckworth brother/sister.

I believe that Simpson Aaron Duckworth Sr may have also lived last in Denton Creek by 1860 timeframe and cannot find him after 1860 where he was living in War Eagle & Walnut township in Arkansas and that he is believed to have relocated to Denton Creek area and possibly died there between 1860-1870 timeframe and believe it may have been abt 20 Jan 1866 (but not verified or proven yet). We believe he was living in lewisville, denton co, tx area before he died and wonder when these removal of graves took place, as he is possibly buried here too.

Do you have any information at all on Louisa A Duckworth (parents, siblings, etc.) to help me with solving my missing family burial locations?

James Harvey "Harve" Rozell

Harve Rozell Buried in a bend of the West Fork River 15 miles east of Jacksboro. From Missouri. Was the first to pre-empt land in Jack County. Built the first mill to grind meal and flour in Jack County. Was a country healer. Was the father of Amanda J and an unknown daughter. Had three wives, the first two not known, the third, the Widow Hunter, with whom he had a son, Jim.
Harve Rozell

Harve Rozell was born in Tennessee in 1814 according to the 1880 Texas census. Nothing is known about his parents or childhood. He married three times during his life although the dates of his marriages and complete names of his wives are unknown. Harve was 19 years old when his daughter, Amada Jane Rozell was born in Missouri on 14 February 1843. He also had another daughter, Melvina Emmaline.

In the early 1850's, Harve moved his family to Texas, settled along the Red River near the Oklahoma border, and planted a cotton crop. As many men did at that time, Harve also joined the Texas Rangers. Some two or three years later, Indians murdered and scalped Harve's wife and took her bonnet and apron. With the Rangers, Harve soon caught up with the culprits who had killed her. He shot and killed an Indian woman who was wearing his wife's bonnet and apron.

After his wife as killed, Harve decided to move his daughters farther south in Texas to Jack County. According to Thomas F. Horton in the History of Jack County, in 1854 Harve became the first person to pre-empt land in Jack County. He claimed a section of land about fifteen miles east of Jacksboro, between Vineyard, now known as Wizard Wells, and Cundiff, in a bend of the West Fork Trinity River, near a natural lake, that was later named Rozell Lake. Harve, however, never legally registered his claim.

In the late 1850's, Harve married Elizabeth M. Hunter, who was born in Missouri in 1811 and had two children, W.B. and Andy, by a previous marriage. Harve's daughters were teenagers when his youngest son, Jim Rozell, was born in 1859.

In his story about Harve Rozell, Thomas Horton described Harve as a man of many abilities. Harve was quite an artisan. He manufactured by hand, with ordinary tools, looms, spinning wheels, bedsteads, baby cradles, churns, chairs, and any article needed about the home. He seasoned burr-oak timber and made wagons. He made dfferent kinds of knives for domestic and other purposes.

He was also a skillful hunter who killed many deer, tanned their hides and made and sold buckskin suits, gloves, and shoes. He also killed coons and made and sold coonskin caps. A dead shot, Harve never wasted any ammunition.

Harve and his wife were both old-time physicians. They attended the sick far and near and make thier own medicines from the wild herbs and roots that grew in the vincinity. They made a salve from what they called "polecat root" that would cure any kind of an old sore.

Harve was out on the prairie one day when a bunch of Indians came up to him. He stood them off by pointing his gun at them and retreating until he reached timber and made his escape. This was the only time Harve was botherd by Indians in Jack County, except that they stole his horses occasionally.

In the early 1860's Harve's daughter, Amanda, married Joel Sanders, and they built a house on some property next to Harve's farm. Harve and his son-in-law decided to build a lumber mill near their homes by the West Fork Trinity River. They wanted to cut lumber to use in a woodworking shop they had set up in a nearby barn. Working together, they made furniture, cabinets and anything else made of wood that anyone needed at that time.

Harve and Joel also built and repaired wagon wheels. To make a wheel that would really last, they used black locust for the hub, hickory for the spokes, and bois d' arc for the rim. After they finished putting the various woods together properly, they encircled the outer rim with steel to complete the wheel. Harve and Joel worked together for twenty years.

One day in August of 1884, Harve was helping Amanda hang her washing out to dry on her fence around her house when he suddenly collapsed and died. He was 70 years old. Harve was buried in a graveyard on a hill on his farm.

The following month, his son-in-law, Joel Sanders, died and was buried near him. Twenty people in all, including Harve's last wife, Elizabeth M., were eventually buried in this graveyard.

This information was taken from Jack County History Book, submitted by Carolyn Reite, a great grandaughter of Amanda Jane Rozell.
