More About Ann Hardister:
Fact 2: Maybe more children.
My information is that Ann Hardister had a sister, Jane Hardister, and a brother, Henry Hardister, who also lived in Gibson Co., TN in the 1830's at or about the time that Ann Hardister married William Goodman. I understand that their father was Samuel Hardister, a son of Thomas Hardister (ca.1737-1841) of Randolph Co., N.C.
My great-great-grandfather was Robert Elisha Hardister who married Mary Jane Smith in 1839 in McLemoresville, Carroll Co., TN. This was very close to the community where the Goodmans lived in Gibson Co., TN. I suspect, but cannot prove, that he was related to Ann, Jane, Henry, et. al. Would you have any information regarding correspondence, business dealings, or any connections between them? I think it is more than coincidence that Robert Elisha Hardister's youngest daughter was named 'Louisa'.
I understand that Henry has numerous known descendants now living, especially in Arkansas. Would you have any information regarding Jane's descendants? I understand that she married a Mr. Edward Hailey/Haley in the 1830's in Gibson County, TN, but I can find no trace of them afterward.
Best regards,
Edward L. Hardister

(Grandson of William Deboard)

The earliest definitive ancestor in this DEBOARD line was William DEBOARD. We find him first in a land transaction in 1806; he purchased 50 acres in Wilkes county, NC, from Cornelius BUTRAM. Around the same time he married Lydia FORESTER (daughter of John Dodgens Forester/Forrester). In 1809 William served as a witness to the marriage of Benjamin Debord (his brother) and Nancy Summers in Wilkes county, NC. William is found with his young family in the 1810 Wilkes county, NC, census. His family group, to the best of our knowledge, would at that time have looked something like this:
William DEBORD, age 41
Lydia FORRESTER, age 35
Hannah, age 11
Robert, age 10
Elizabeth, age 2
Mary Selinda, age 1
Unknown daughter, under 10 years old.

Little is known of their life in North Carolina, nor do we know why William decided in his mid-forties to move his family west. We do know that sometime prior to 1818 the family arrived in White county, IL – they were among the earliest of settlers in that area. We are fortunate to have a description of their journey. It comes to us in the form of a letter written in 1909 by Mary Frances Ann Shaw, whose mother was Hannah Debord, the granddaughter of Hannah Debord who was the eldest of William’s daughters. It came to me from Burrell Shaw, her grandson. I cite it here verbatim:
“A lock of my grandmother's hair. She was 83 years old Jan 9, 1909. This is the 26 of March. She was the daughter of Hannah(Deboard)Cook who was the daughter of Lydie (Forester) Deboard who was the sister of John Forester, were originally from Virginia to N.C, then to Illinois. The above ‘John Forester’ was my great-grandfather on mother's side.
Lydia Deboard walked from N.C. to Ill, toating a piggin of water and tolling a sow and five shoats. William Deboard, her husband, led the horse (had only one) Robin, Lucy, Bettie, Polly and Lydia jr the children, rode on the horse which carried their worldly effects in a poke somewhat like a bedtick. The above William & Lydia Deboard were my great-great grandparents on my father's mother's side."
SOURCE: Frances (Shaw) Thomas

‘Robin’ was a nickname for Robert, William’s only son, and our direct ancestor. Born 21 August 1800 (probably in Wilkes county, NC), Robert may have been around 12 or 13 when his family undertook this difficult and lengthy journey. We know that William’s siblings (Robert’s uncles), John, Benjamin, and Solomon, also moved to White county at or around the same time, and it is reasonable to imagine that they may have traveled together at times. It is likely that they were searching for greater opportunity for their children to be landowners. The trip would have been a long one – walking from North Carolina to Illinois. In 1817 a William Debard is found in the Sumner county, TN, census. In 1819 a Solomon Debord is found in Sumner county. We can safely assume that the families stopped for some period in Sumner county. There is conflicting data that would indicate that William’s daughter Lydia (sister to our own Robert or ‘Robin’] was born in TN in 1813 – so the may have begun their journey as early as that year, or even the year before.
In 1820 William Debord first appears in the White county, IL, census data. However, his daughter Hannah had married in 1818 in White county to John Cook – so the family was there by 1818. As the three Debord families moved into White county, it becomes difficult to sort out the female family members. The brothers all had more daughters than sons, and county records are not of significant help in sorting out who belonged to whom. William’s children began to marry into other early White county families. The surnames include COOK, YATES, and SUMMERS. The Summers family probably moved from North Carolina, as well. The families very likely had a relationship prior to the move from one state to the other. This SUMMERS family was probably the family of Benjamin DeBOARD's wife Nancy SUMMERS>
The next to marry after Hannah was our Robert. He married Elizabeth BOLERJACK on 4 December 1822 in White county, Illinois. He was 22, and Elizabeth (“Betty”) was 19. Betty Bolerjack was the daughter of John or Johann Bolerjack and Mary FORRESTER, also from NC. There was probably a relationship between Bettie Bolerjack's mother, Mary FORRESTER and Robert's mother Lydie FORRESTER; they may have been cousins. It is likely that the DeBOARD, BOLERJACK (originally BULLITSCHEK) and FORRESTER families were friends when they lived in NC.
Robert and Bettie had their first child the year after they were married. There is conflicting information about the eldest daughters' names and ages. However, the 1850 census lists the children of the family as follows (Robert had died the year before, and his wife Elizabeth was the head of household):
Mary S., age 21, IL [b ca 1829]
John W., 18, IL [b ca 1832]
Lidda M., 16, IL [b ca 1834]
Joel F., 14, IL [b ca 1836]
Rebecca I., 12, IL [b ca 1838]
[Also in the household were the recently widowed William T. FORRESTER and his two children. He was the husband of their daughter Lucinda, who had died the previous year.]
Robert DEBOARD was a farmer, and he was one of the founding trustees of the Ebenezer Methodist Church in Norris City, White county, IL., in 1838. Robert died at the age of 50. The mortality schedule indicates that Robert suffered from ‘C’ for five years; this probably indicated consumption – or, as we would call it today, tuberculosis.
Illinois marriage records indicate the marriage of Mary L. DEARBORD to John STULL in 1851. I have been unable to find any further evidence of their lives, through census or other data.
John W. DeBOARD married Anna Abigail GARRETT on 27 Oct 1853 in White Co IL; they remained in White county until his death in 1871, at which time his brother Joel F. acted as his executor. John W. and his wife can be found in the 1860 and 1870 White county census.
Lidda M., married Travis Owen Spence on 22 June 1853 in White County - this much is confirmed by marriage records in the county. I received e-mail from an individual a few years ago who stated that she was descended from a Travis Owen Spencer; family stories said that his wife was Lydia DeBOAR. She died in Cape Girardeau. It is more than likely that this is our Lidda M., but there are some birth year discrepancies.
Rebecca married Hiram FLOYD on 24 July 1838 in White county, IL. They remained in White county; Rebecca died and was buried there in 1907.
Among the younger children of Robert Deboard and Betty Bolerjack, and one of only two sons born to the family, was my great great grandfather Joel Franklin DeBoard, who was born on 13 July 1836 in White County, IL.
Robert died when Joel Franklin (“Franklin” as he was known) was 13 years old. Franklin had a brother four years older, and a number of older sisters, so the mantle of responsibility probably didn’t fall as heavily on him as it might have done.
Robert’s widow, Betsy, is found in the 1850 census alone with her children. Oddly, we have not been able to locate her in census again until 1880, at which time she is found living with her youngest daughter Rebecca and Rebecca’s husband, Hiram Floyd.
Joel Franklin DeBoard married in 1858, at the age of 22, to Margaret Ann McKenzie. Soon thereafter, he found himself on active duty for the Union forces. He enlisted in August of 1861, and served in Co. G., 29th Illinois.
A history of this regimentcan be@

Franklin mustered out in August of 1864. Prior to the war, and in the course of the war, he and his wife Ann had conceived several children. When he left the service in 1864, they had two living children: Marcilla Vitura, age 4, and Adrian, age 1. The following year they added to their family with another son, Darius, who did not live to adulthood. Darius was followed by our direct ancestor, Snoden Shelley DeBoard in 1866, Emma Elizabeth DeBoard in 1868, Allis “Allie” in 1870, and Robert Retus in 1875 – all born in White county. Following the birth of Retus, the family moved for a time to Coffeyville, Montgomery county, KS. In 1876 the family decided to move back to White county, IL. But on the way, they stopped to visit Ann’s sister Priscilla, who had married a Hargroves and had moved to Howell county, MO. The DeBoard family camped at Hargroves Pond, near Priscilla’s home. The oral history says that their horse died – and they stayed.
We find the family in the 1880 Howell county, MO census with their children, including a toddler named Hettie, who was born after the move in 1878. Franklin and Ann would have three more children in Howell county: Mary (1880), Andy (1881), and Louis (1883). Franklin and Ann remained in Howell county until the end of their lives, and were buried at Center Hill cemetery, not far from their farm.
The DeBoard family was always a close one. When they weren’t together, they stayed in touch with one another by post. We are fortunate to have copies of some of this correspondence, beginning in 1896 and extending through 1938. The letters are full of the homely details of day to day life, and reflect the personalities of the individuals writing.
The earliest one, dated 20 January 1896 was written by Andy to his sister Hettie who had married and was living in Arkansas. He tells her that their sister Aley is getting along well with her husband Link, that there isn’t a family around that doesn’t have the ‘grippe’, that they have an inch and a half of snow and it is still coming down, and that the frame of the new church building is up (Center Hill Church was under construction).
In another letter from the period, Emma wrote to her brother Adrian and his wife, telling them that they needed rain, that she thought they would harvest about six acres of corn and sow wheat the following week, that they were all gathering apples that evening, that brothers Louis and Snoden were working the roads, and finished up with who had been married, who had made a profession of faith, and who had been baptized. Personalities gradually emerge. All of the family shared details of weather and crops consistently. Aley was likely to give the news about the neighbors: engagements, marriages, illnesses, deaths. Snoden’s letters often center on health, his and that of his family. Retus spoke most often of spiritual matters, dispensing kind and loving advice.
Joel Franklin DeBoard’s son Snoden Shelley DeBoard was my great grandfather. Known as a hard worker (the Walker side of my family always called him a “killin’ worker”), he farmed for a living. In 1888 he married Cora Emma Roush in Howell county, MO. She was the daughter of John Roush and Emaline Cunningham; her parents were from PA and IN respectively, so Snoden married a northern girl, which probably suited his Illinois sensibilities. The couple lived most of their lives in Howell county, but spent a few years in the Chandler, OK area, where they rented a farm. The DeBoard correspondence from this period would indicate that Snoden was discouraged by life in Oklahoma. He felt that it was a hard place to make a living by farming, and he missed his extended family. He also felt that Oklahoma was not conducive to their good health. Snoden and Cora moved back to Howell county where they lived for the remainder of their lives. They are buried at Center Hill cemetery, the church that his family had helpted to build, not far from his parents.
Snoden’s son Floyd Wilson DeBoard was my grandfather. He had a brief young marriage which ended sadly with the death of a young child. In 1929 he married Dessie Irene Clark (also from a Howell county family) in Springfield, MO. They had 8 children, 7 of whom lived to adulthood.
Floyd took his two eldest sons, Donald and Edwin, to spend the summer in Oregon, where Floyd’s sister Carrie had settled with her husband (Bill Zumwalt). Bill and Carrie drove the three of them back to Missouri, so that they could visit extended family.
In the summer of 1951 Floyd and Irene moved their family to the Hood River Valley of Oregon. Floyd’s sister Carrie had married William Zumwalt and was residing in Gresham, OR. Floyd and his eldest two sons, Donald and Edwin had visited and knew that there was sork to be had in the fruit and packing industry.
Floyd and Irene’s eldest daughter, Lula Fay, only lived with them in Oregon for a brief time before taking the train to Biloxi, Mississippi to marry Bill Walker, her high school sweetheart from Mountain View. He was stationed at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, and they were married in the base chapel; Bill and Lu would move to Oregon 5 years later. The six younger siblings all married and remained in Oregon.
Floyd died in Hood River in 1957. His wife Irene will celebrate her 96th birthday this October, and continues to enjoy her family, and watching the St. Louis Cardinals play baseball. Their seven children all continue to reside in various areas of the State of Oregon.

Mountain View Standard
August 15,1919
Uncle J. Franklin DeBoard....Rev. J.F. DeBoard was born in White County, Illinois, July 13,1839, and died June 15,1919. He toiled along in this old troublesome world for 83 years, 11 months, and 2 days. He was wonderfully saved at the age of 16, and united with the M.E. Church. He united in marriage August 26,1858, to Margaret A. McKinsey, who was a faithful wife and helpmate, being converted to Jesus Christ in her 15th year. She still waits and mourns his departure. To this union were born thirteen children, seven girls and 6 boys. Five boys and two girls till are waiting their departure when they shall join their father and loved ones who have crossed on over the tide. Two girls, Mrs. J.H. Goodman and Mrs. W. L. Beard, and S.S. Deboard, live north of Chandler, OK and two boys A.L. and R. H. DeBoard, and two other sons, A.E. and L.L. DeBoard, still live near Mountain View.
Rev. DeBoard was licensed to preach in the M.E. Church in 1860. He Volunteered in the union army in August,1861, and made a good soldier for three years, being honorably discharges in August, 1864.
He left Illinois and came to Howell County in 1876, where he lived until his death. Shortly after arriving in Missouri he united wit the Congregational Church and was ordained to preach. "Uncle Franklin" as he was called, was not a great preacher as some call great, but was one in whom everyone had confidence. He always on hand at preaching services, prayer meetings, and Sunday School to do what he could for the Lord and the church. He was not only a preacher, but was one of the best Sunday school class leaders in the church. He was present to marry young people and also to bury the dead. "Uncle Franklin"was well known and loved by both young and old. Especially was he loved by the host of grand children, there being thirty seven grandchildren and twenty three great grandchildren. Truly it was a shock and we are grieved to lose him as husband, father, Grandfather, neighbor and church worker. but our loss is his gain, so we say "Amen" to the Father of Lights who doeth all things well.
His grandson, Rev. Franklin N. DeBoard

They had one son Fred Jenkins born 11/9/1897. He died 1967. Issac and Alay could not get along. He supposedly met a 17 year old in Willow Springs, Missouri and they ran off sometime in1898,never heard from again, not even by her family.

In the 1900 census Alay had again married to husband #3 John Hope
