ROSS  COUNTY  OBITUARIES

                             SAMUEL WILKINS
 

     Samuel Buress Wilkins was born in the state of Delaware on the 15th day of
     April, 1808 and died at his residence in Ross County, O., three miles south of
     New Holland, on the 12th of Feb., 1888, being in th 80th year of his life.

     When a boy eight years old, his parents emigrated to the state of Ohio, bringing their
     son with them. They settled in that section of Ross Co. called Egypt. Here he grew to
     manhood. The country was mostly unchanged and but little better than a wilderness. He
     formed the acquaintance of Miss Nancy McCafferty, who lived near Frankfort, and
     on the 7th day of November 1830, they were married; the Rev. Adam Poe, of
     precious memory, performing the ceremony.

     After their marriage, they lived for about three years, near Frankfort, when they moved
     to Twin. Here they lived for 20 years, then they moved to the place on which he died.
     He was one of the Ross county pioneers.

     Bro. and sister Wilkins by their marriage, had nine children, four of that number are
     dead. Three of the five living, reside in Ross county near him and two are in Kansas.

     In the year 1828, he was converted to God and united with the M.E. church under the
     administration of Rev. F. Wilson, of which he was a consistent and honored member till
     death. During the period of his membership he performed honest and faithful works for
     the Master; in the church, he filled the offices of Class Leader, Steward and Trustee to
     the satisfaction of all the brethren of the Quarterly Conference of which he was a
     member for many years, being a member of the church 64 years. He loved the church
     of his choice and his prayer was for her prosperity. His life was such as to bring no
     reproach on the cause of his Master. He was a reader of the Western Christian
     Advocate. For some time past he has been a sufferer, but he recognized this as a part
     of the lot of humanity and bore all with Christian resignation and becometh a "good
     soldier of Christ," manifesting a willingness to "suffer as well as to do the will of the
     Lord."

     When on last Sunday, the Lord saw it was enough and the messenger of death came,
     his disembodied spirit took its flight to the Mansion prepared for it. Bro. Wilkins was
     fully prepared and patiently waiting the coming of his Lord. He died as he had lived in
     the Lord. His faith to the last was clear and strong, his hope was an anchor to the soul
     already cast into that which is within the veil.

     Bro. Wilkins as a husband was devoted and loving; as a father affectionate and tender;
     as a neighbor and citizen he was kind and upright. He leaves a widow, five children, a
     number of relatives and friends to mourn his departure. His funeral services were held
     at Brown's Chapel and the remains were laid away to rest in the cemetery at the
     Chapel.

     "In hope of a glorious resurrection and eternal life to come through our Lord Jesus
     Christ." -- R.W.

     [NB: This is from a newspaper clipping which was glued in the front of a diary kept by
     Abraham Lincoln Kearney Sr. starting in 1888. No newspaper name or date was

Children of John (the Bear Hunter) CutrightChildren of
      "The Bear Hunter"
      By John O Cutright

 

           The descendents of John and Elizabeth have spread
to the four corners       of this country; however, the major concentrations of
the descents are in
      Ross Co. Ohio and central Illinois. The obituary said
John and Elizabeth       were the parents of 12 children. Only 10 are known at
this time.
There is
      a single page document called "The Cutright Bible"
which lists 10 children
      and then goes on to to list the children of John " the
Deer Hunter"      Cutright.

           The known children of John and Elizabeth were the
following:
          The 1st child was Elizabeth Cutright who was born
January 1, 1776. She       was probably born at their home on the South Branch of
the Potomac near       present Moorefield WV, and named for her mother.
Elizabeth traveled with       her parents to the West Fork of the Monongahela and
then in 1789 to      Kentucky where she married Alexander Ramsay in 1792 in

Lexington Kentucky.
      Alexander had been born on board a ship when his parents were immigrating
      from Ireland. The family went to Virginia. One time Alexanders'
father,       John Ramsay, was chased by Indians. He got away from
them but was so       exhausted and over heated then drank a great deal of
water and died.
      Alexander was a blacksmith. In about 1800 Elizabeth,
Alexander, and their       three children followed her parents to Ross Co. Ohio.
Elizabeth died in       about 1810 in Ross Co. Elizabeth and Alexander had 8
children.
Their 1st       born was Polly who was born in about 1793. She married
Henry Shaner in       1816 in Ross Co. They came to Cumberland Co. Ill. in
about 1840.
Polly and       Henry Shaner were living southwest of Union Center in
1851 when there was       a cholera epidemic in the area. Polly died of cholera.
Everyone was so       afraid of the disease that 2 of the neighbors, Uriah
and David Walling,
      wrapped her in the bed clothes and buried her in a
field near the house. A       rail fence was built around the grave. Years later the
Timothy road was       built through the field. For many years the road went
around the grave and       fence. Finally the fence rotted down and road was
straightened and now       runs over the grave.
           Polly and Henry Shaner had a son named John who
was born in about       1820 in Ross Co. In 1845 he married Rachel Cutright
who was a daughter on       John ( the Deer Hunter) Cutright. A daughter named
Elizabeth was born on       June 21, 1821 in Ross Co. She married John Cutright
lll, a son of of John       (the Deer Hunter) Cutright in 1848.
          Elizabeth is believed to have died in about 1810, and is probably       buried at Hill cemetery.
           The second child was Mary Cutright who was born on December 2, 1778,
      probably at their home on the South Branch of the Potomac. Nothing else is
      known about her. She is presumed to have died while she was young.
           The 3rd child was Catherine Cutright who was born on August 19, 1780,
      probably at their home on the South Branch of the
Potomac. She married       Col. John McDonald on 2/5/1799 in Ross Co. Ohio. John
was a frontier       woodsman, boatman, surveyor, Indian fighter, pioneer settler,
veteran of       the War of 1812, state Senator from Ross Co., and the
author of "Western       Sketches". His father was William McDonald who was a
soldier in the      Revolution. John was an associate of Simon Kenton, and

Nathaniel Massie.
      His sister married Duncan McArthur. John and Cathreine
had 8 children--7       girls and one boy.
           Their son John Cutright McDonald, married Hannah
Teter who was the       granddaughter of Captain Samuel Teter--a hero of the
Revolution.
John was       a lawyer, Sheriff of Ross Co., veteran of the Civil
War, and State Senator
      from Ross Co. John and Hannah had a son William H.
McDonald who became a       lawyer in 1862. He came to Charleston Illinois in
about 1864, then moved       to Toledo, then East St. Louis, back to Ohio, and
finally in 1880 he       returned to Greenup, Illinois where he set up a law
office. William had a       son named John McDonald who edited a newspaper in
Greenup called "The       Rising Sun" for several years.
           One of their daughters, Mary Teter McDonald,
married David Core. They       had a child Kenton Core, named for Simon Kenton. Kent
was Captured in the       Civil Was. He was paroled but couldn't fight any more.
He came to Illinois       during the last of the war. He traveled from Ohio to
Illinois many times       over the next 50 years.      Catherine died on March
22, 1850 and is       buried in Lattaville cemetery.
           The 4th child was Andrew Cutright who was born on
May 14, 1784      probably at their home on the South Branch of the  Potomac. He married

      Pheobe Engle who was the daughter of Hinerich Engle, a Revolutionary War
      Soldier. John served in the War of 1812, and was a Justice of the Peace in
      Seneca Co. Ohio. It is believed Andrew and Phoebe had nine children.
      Andrew died after 1836 in Seneca Co.
           The 5th child was Henry Cutright who was born on August 16, 1787,
      probably at their home on the West Fork of the
Monongahela near Clarksburg
      WV . He married Susannah Neff on October 29, 1809 in Ross Co. Ohio.
She       was a sister of Hanah Neff, the wife of William Cutright. Henry
served in       the War of 1812. It is believed Henry had 5 children,
at least one of       them, John N. Cutright, went to Illinois in 1837.
           The 6th child was John (the Deer Hunter) Cutright
who was born on       September 24, 1789 probably at their home on the West
Fork of the       Monongahela near Clarksburg WV. There used to be a
question about whether       John was born in Virginia or Kentucky because the
family moved to Kentucky
      in 1789; however, on August 26, 1850 John reporter in
the 1850 Federal       census that he had been born in Virginia. John married
Marthe Engle on       October 29, 1809 in Ross Co. Ohio. Martha was a sister
of Phoebe who       married his brother Andrew. John was a frontiersman,
soldier in the War of       1812, a Justice of the Peace in Ross Co. Ohio, and one
of the       administrators of his fathers estate. John was
involved in several court       cases---one time he was sued over a dam and mill he
built in Chillicothe       Ohio. The jury found in John's favor. Another time he
defended his son       Albert in a paternity case. He lost that case. John
was in the Ohio

      Legislature in 1835 and attended a presidential
convention as Ohio       favorite-son candidate for Vice President. John was
called the Deer Hunter
      because of his ability to shoot a deer from a galloping horse. His
      Kentucky Rifle is still in existence.            In November 1838 John started buying land in Cumberland Co. Illinois       from the government, and about that time John and several of his children       and other family members moved from Ohio to Illinois.
John eventually       bought at least 1470 acres from the government, and
other tracts from       individuals so that at one time he had about 2000
acres in Illinois.
      Eventually all of Johns children except Camden moved
to Illinois along       with several nephews and sisters-in-law after their
husbands died.
      According to tradition John also had $2000 in gold
which he buried on his       Illinois farm. Numerous people tried to find it over
the next century but       as far as is known no one found it. In about 1910
Oliver Cutright was       plowing a pasture field next to a hill that hadn't
been plowed before.       When he reached the end of the field he noticed the
lid of a pot that he       had hit and dragged on the bottom of the plow with
him. The underside was       clean, indicating that it had covered a pot--perhaps a
pot of gold.
Oliver       never was able to find the pot or the gold.
           John and Martha had 6 children--Albert, Rachel
Shaner, Oliver,      Camden, John III, and Elizabeth Redman. Camden stayed

in Ohio and the rest       of the family eventually came to Illinois. One of the
children Oliver       married Mary Baumgartner, the granddaughter of Henry
Baungartner, a      Hessian Soldier who was brought to this country to

fight for England in       the Revolution. Henry deserted and stayed to fight for
the colonies.            John died on June 29, 1860 and is buried in the
Cutright Cemetery in       Cumberland Co. Illinois.
           The 7th child was Nathaniel who according to his
obituary was born in       Fayette Co. Kentucky on November 1, 1791. Nathaniel
moved to Ohio with his       parents in 1796. He married Margaret Veill on June 18,
1812.
Nathaniel       served in the War of 1812. In 1842 he ran a saw mill
and was noted for       practical jokes. He died on April 10, 1844 and was
buried at Aaron Keller       Cemetery. In 1968 his body was moved to New Holland
Cemetery because of       the construction of a Deer Creek Reservoir. His wife
Margaret came to       Illinois and is buried in Cutright Cemetery.
          The 8th child was William, who was born in
Kentucky on July 18, 1794.
      He also served in the War of 1812. He married Hannah
Neff on April 11,       1814 in Ross Co. Ohio. She was a daughter of Henry
Neff and a sister on       Susannah who married Andrew. Hannah came to McLean Co.
Illinois after       Williams death. Hannah attended the funeral of Simon
Kenton.
           The 9th child was James who was born in Ross Co.
Ohio on February 26,       1798. He was the 1st white child born in Ross Co.,
Ohio. He married Sabra       Neff on July 4, 1819 in Ross Co. Sabra was the
daughter Leonard and Lydia
      Neff. James was a farmer, owning 821 acres in Springfield Township.
James       died on June 16, 1870. The genealogist Ruth Marie Clark was
descended from       James.
           The 10th child was Hiram who was born on November
30, 1801 in Ross       Co. Ohio. He first married Sally Groves. She died and
he married Hannah       Neff on January 22, 1829. Hiram was a farmer and
grocery merchant.
He died       in July 1882.
