Thomas Logan BUMGARNER

[CurrentBum2.GED]

[v03t0780.ftw]

From the Bumgarner History:

On August 6, 1864, Thomas, who was 20, and Absolum (Kie), age 18, joined the 46th Mo. Infantry, Company G., in Springfield.  They were Mustered in on Sept. 7, 1864, also in Springfield, serving until March 31, 1865, less than a year.  Their father, Andy, was said to be so angry that the Army wouldn't take his (age we suppose), that he climbed up and sat  on the smoke house and when he sons left, cussed and beat on the roof. . . .

. . . . Thomas was born on July 1, 1843/4 in Catawaba County as Lincoln County was now divided.  Although he had sight in only one eye, a childhood accident (his mother or sister sticking a needle in it while sewing), he also served in the war.  He and Jane Tate married and had two children, Tina and Hattie, both born in Texas.  His second wife was Ellen Vandorn, and they also had two children Beulah; who died at 1 (10?) years, and William Riley (Bill), both in Arkansas.  Thomas is said to have helped his sister Delia to raise a large family after her husband, Joseph Hill, died in Pol County, Arkansas.  He later made his home with John W. Hill, his nephew.

Buried: Welch Cemetery

spouse: Ellen Vandorn

children: Beulah, William Riley

Andrew Rudolph , Jr. BUMGARNER

[CurrentBum2.GED]

Death: March 7/8, 1862 in Battle of Pea Ridge,AR
Note:  Aaron was the oldest of son of Andy. He was killed in the Civil War at
the Battle of Pea Ridge in AR. The Andy,JR family was Pro Union in these
days.

[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.

LINK, BUMGARNER

Thomas TRIPLETT, 1755-1765 in VA, was the father of George Hodson
TRIPLETT, who was born 7 Nov 1792 in Burke County. George TRIPLETT
married Elizabeth LINK in 1813. Elizabeth was born in Burke County on
7 Nov 1792??. The couple's daughter, Lavina TRIPLETT, was born 1815 in
Lincoln County, NC., m Andrew R. BUMGARNER, JR., in Lincoln Co.
17 Dec. 1834.
I have lots of information on the TRIPLETTs after Geroge Hodson TRIPLETT
but want to go further back with the line. Also, lots on the BUMGARNER line,
I have nothing on the LINK line only Elizabeth. If you are researching
TRIPLETT or LINK or BUMGARNER in NC please contact me as I am
willing to share.
