Absolum Malachi BUMGARNER

[CurrentBum2.GED]

[v03t0780.ftw]

From the Bumgarner History:

The seventh child of Andy an Lavina was Absolum Malachi, known as Kie, born Feb. 2, 1848 in North Carolina.  He was the youngest of Andy's boys to serve in the Civil War.  Kie was married three times and had a total of 10 children with his first wife being Frances Murphy Jourden, known as Mitty.  They were married June 28, 1866 in Webster County and had 5 children, the first being Mitty L.H.A., born March 8, 1867, who died in infancy.  Andy Sherman was born exactly a year later.  Thomas L. (known as Aaron) was born July 7, 1870 and his sister Ola Leeava on Feb. 9, 1874/6.  We don't know when Mitty died but on March 18, 1880, Kie married Alphus (Allie) Letterman and they had 3 children.  First she had twin boys, one born Feb. 14, who died at birth and Orness S., who was born on Feb. 15, 1881.  Her next son was Wasper, born May 6, 1884.  She then hung herself in the old white barn and was buried by his first wife, Fanny, in Welch Cemetery.  He then married Mary Etta Crawley, who was 21 years younger than him, and had 3 children.  Elton Malachi (Jack) was born May 23, 1893, Rockee Ellen, was born Dec. 16, 1894, and an unnamed infant who was born and died in 1895.  Kie farmed all his life around Northview, and died at 77 years and is buried in MT.

[v03t0780.ftw]

From the Bumgarner History:

In 1834, Andy married Lavina Triplett and both Andrews [Jr. and Sr.] appear on the1840 census in Catawaba County (Lincoln was now divided).  We do know that he and his family made their way west in the early 50's, going overland by covered wagon.  They probably went through the Cumberland Gap in Eastern Tennessee, later passing through Kentucky, across the Mississippi and finally settling in Webster County.  They were joining Lavina's parents who were already living in Missouri.

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA
LINCOLN COUNTY
KNOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS, THAT WE

Andrew Bumgarner and John Bumgarner
of the State aforesaid, are held and firmly bound unto THE
STATE OF NORTH-CAROLINA, in the just and full sum of Five
Hundred Pounds, current money of said State:  To the which
payment well and truly to be made and done, we bind
ourselves, our heirs, executors, and administrators.

Sealed with our seal and dated this 17th day of Dec
Anno Domini 1834

THE CONDITION OF THE ABOVE OBLIGATION TO SUCH, That    whereas the above bounden Andrew Bumgarner hath made
application for a License for a MARRIAGE, to be celebrated
between him and Lavina Triplet of the county aforesaid:
Now in case it shall appear hereafter that there is any lawful
cause to obstruct the said Marriage, then the above obligation
to be void--otherwise to remain in full force and virtue.

SEALED AND DELIVERED,         Andrew Bumgarner
IN THE PRESENCE OF          John Bumgarner
_?_ Abernathy


(Marriage Bond of Andrew Bumgarner (Jr.), and Lavina Triplett -- groom put up 500 pounds, which would go to the State Governor if he didn't marry her.  The bride's father usually put aside a portion of land to give the couple.  In North Carolina, if the wedding was in a church, the bonds weren't necessary.  Most marriages were by the Justice of the Peace in the county courthouse.
John Bumgarner could have been a brother or most likely first cousin, John A., as Grandfather John and John (Jr.) are both deceased.  We don't know all the names of Andrew's brothers and sisters.)
+++++++++++++++++

MOVING ON TO THE MISSOURI OZARKS
Andy and Lavina's trip to Missouri was slow and tiring, over primitive roads, with all kinds of weather and many rivers to cross.  They had their children Arron, Rudolph, Thomas, Kie and Delia.  (Fannie may have stayed in N.C. to marry Pat Murphy or possibly she came with her parents and Pat came to Mo., married her and they returned to N.C.  Henry was along as he was born in 1850 before they came to Mo.)  I'm sure there were many hardships and also exciting incidents.  We only wish more information had been preserved.  John A. Bumgarner, grandson of Andy, told of hearing his father relate a story that he (Rudolph or Duff) remembered vividly.  He was the youngest child waling with the wagon, only 10/12 years at the time.  The older ones teased him about straggling behind.  They kept telling him a bear was sure to get him.  When they finally did encounter a bear, he was a very scared little boy.

John A. also enjoyed relating a story of his fathers' about one of the men (Andy or one of his sons, Arron, Duff, Kie or Thomas) in their early days in Webster County, who went hunting for something for the dinner table.  He found himself face-to-face with a panther (mountain lion) in the woods.  Quickly he fired his single shot muzzle loading rifle, turned and ran home, not stopping until he had slammed the cabin door.  After reloading, he and the other men folk went back to see if he had killed it.  They found it dead in its tracks, a perfect shot.

There is a family legend that Grandpa Andy could drink more hard liquor and split more cord wood than any man in Webster County.  It's said that one Saturday night when he was roaring drunk he decided to ride his horse into the cabin.  His wife must have reached the end of her patience for she slammed the door in his face.

We found a land purchase for Andy (A.R.) Bumgarner on September 13, 1864 for 80 acres.  They may have been share cropping or tenant farming for the 10 years before this.  In February of 1867, he bought 160 acres more in an adjoining section.  Lavina had ten children with one, Susanna, probably born in Webster County.  We don't know the correct date of birth for her youngest son Henry or if he was in Missouri.  Lavina died in 1868 or before and is buried in Welch Cemetery.

Andy remarried on the 28th of January 1869, and had four more children by his second wife, Barbara Ellen Haggard, a woman almost 30 years younger. The children were Andy (Dodge), Rachel Lucind (Lou), Martha Ann and Lavina Jane (Vina), who was born two months after his death in October of 1878.  Barbara lived nearly 39 years longer and all three, Andy and both wives are buried side-by-side in Welch Cemetery, only a few miles from their farm home.

A WAR DIVIDES OUR NATION
The loyalties in Missouri were mixed as in all border states.  It was mostly settled by southerners, but mainly small independent farmers with no slaves.  The Bumgarners were strongly Union, even though Grandfathers John and Andrew were slave owners in North Carolina.  We have no record of Andy and Lavina bringing any to Missouri when they came in the 1850's.

(See children's notes for further history.)

In the early 1850s, this family made their way through the Cumberland Gap traveling by covered wagon through Eastern TN, KY, across the Mississippi River, and finally settling in Webster County. One night a stranger stayed all night with them and they found out later it was Jessie James and was probably in the 1860s.They actually settled in the North View, MO area in 1851-1853 bringing six or seven children with them.

Aaron BUMGARNER

[CurrentBum2.GED]

[v03t0780.ftw]

From Bumgarner History:

Aaron, the oldest son of Andy, was born in 1837/8 in Newton County, North Carolina.  He was killed in the service of his country during the Civil War.  Army records describe him as 5 ft., 8 ins., hair - brown, eyes - grey, fair complexion, and he was unmarried.

Aaron and Duff [his brother] enlisted together on July 27, 1861 at Marshfield, Mo. (Civil War) They were mustered into the 24th Infantry Volunteers, Company I, Oct. 15, 1861 at Benton Barracks, St. Louis.  Both of them were in the Union forces that tried to block General Sterling Price's early move into Missouri to get volunteers and to try and sway our state to the Confederate cause.  The Armies met just south of Springfield at a small stream called Wilson's Creek and engaged in a hard fought battle.  The Union forces were beaten and Price continued his sweep north reaching as far as Lexington on the Missouri River.

We don't know where the brothers spent the winter of 1861, but they were in the regiments marshalled to combat the Rebels under General Van Doran, who was planning a second invasion of Missouri.  Union General Curtis met them in a sharp two day battle at Pea Ridge in northwestern Arkansas. Fought over rough terrain, through farmers fields near the Elk Horn Tavern, an old stage stop, the battle raged on through March 7/8, 1862.

When Company I was thrown into the struggle, it's men were told to fire a volley from their muzzle loading rifles, then fall back reloading while another part of the company took their places.  So they continued alternately firing, falling back and reloading until Duff was hit in the back, near the spine.

A doctor later told him that his brother Aaron was shot in the almost identical place in his back, only the velocity of the bullet being greater.  Aaron's wound was fatal and his body was first buried at Pea Ridge, then later moved to the National Cemetery at Springfield, Mo.
