Notes for JULIA ANN MELTON:|
"family legend" as told by Ruth Kitching, Mable Taylor Kroeger and Ruby Taylor James...... The Meltons sympathies were with the south. So they joined the confederacy. Susan Taylor Melton went to live with her little brother, Thomas Hewitt Taylor, while her boys were off fighting. That is when Julia Ann set her cap for her cousin "Jimar Taylor".Because of the cousin thing, the family refused to let her and Jimar get married. They eloped to California Mo. and stayed with Melton cousins until Tommy Taylor sent word that "all was forgiven, Come Home" Cole Co. records show that they were married at Millbrook, Mo. 14 November, 1869. Millbrook was the nearest little town. I guess they stopped off and was married by Justice of the peace before going on to Moniteau Co.
Julia Ann is the only one left at home at the time. She cried for joy when that horrible man Abraham Lincoln was assasinated.
Julia Ann climbed a haystack to gather eggs. An enormous blacksnake had beat her to it. It startled her and she fell breaking her leg. Soldiers was fighting in the area and they could not get a doctor to her. It was hot July so they laid her on a pallet by the hand dug cistern. The men and children had rolled snowballs and filled the cistern in the winter so the water was ice cold. They fed her spoons of whiskey and poured cold water over the feverish leg. It was 1 p. m the next day before the doctor could get through. The leg never healed. As a very old lady, it was still an open sore that she kept bandaged. She was a cripple her entire life.
Snelling Johnson Melton is living in Cooper Co. in 1860 Missouri census.
Susan and family if living with him. When he joins the army, she goes to Tommie Taylors with Julia Ann.
