William F. ROBERTS was born on 20 Feb 1808. He died on 5 Apr 1862 and was buried in Oakland Cem., Moberly, Missouri. William married America LAND on 23 Dec 1829 in Jessamine Co., KY.

Other marriages:
COATES, Julia Dorothy

Received this 6/99 from Carole :

"John - I think I found a marriage date for William F. Roberts and America Land. I found them on a marriage CD I have that covers several southern states. William's last name spelled "Robards". The date listed was Dec 23, 1829 in Jessamine Co., KY."

May not be him, but

The booklet, "Original Land Purchases of Randolph County, Missouri" by Cecille Taylor Rice, pub. by the Randolph County Historical Society has this on him:

Roberts, William purchased 5 large lots from 19 Jul 1841 to 1855.

Read the notes under his son-in-law, John Robert Terrill, which say that John went to the gold rush in 1849 with a "Capt. William Roberts." I wonder if it could be this man.

There is a William Roberts buying Randolph Co. land 1843-1857:

At the KY biographies site there is this: "Thomas H. Roberts, farmer, P. O. Payne's Depot; was born in Scott County, Ky., Oct. 5, 1843; his father, Hillery Roberts, was born Dec. 5, 1798, and died April 25, 1874, and was a son of William Roberts, a native of Maryland, who came to Kentucky in 1790, and settled on the place now owned by T. H. Payne. The mother of our subject, was Lemira Waggoner, a native of Scott County, born Oct. 7, 1807, and died May 8, 1874." I wonder if this William could be father of our William.

America LAND [Parents] was born on 6 Oct 1809. She died on 23 Aug 1855 and was buried in Oakland Cem., Moberly, Missouri. America married William F. ROBERTS on 23 Dec 1829 in Jessamine Co., KY.

Her tombstone says she died: "aged 45y, 10m, 7d." If her dod is accurate, 23 Aug 1855, that would make her dob as being 16 Oct 1809.

They had the following children:

William Eugene TERRILL [Parents] was born on 13 Apr 1857 in , Randolph Co., Missouri. He died in 1910 from suicide. William married Stonie HAMMETT.

Was a teacher. Committed suicide about age 53. Had a son, Thurman, who lived in the Southwest...possibly Albuqurque, New Mexico. Went by name of "Gene". When sister Elizabeth died in 1946, "Gene's Family" was left a little money, so someone in family was alive then .

Stonie HAMMETT was born on 12 Jul 1862. She died on 14 Feb 1915. Stonie married William Eugene TERRILL.

See other Hammett #2536. Relationship, if any, is unknown. In the log of the Huntsville Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Huntsville, Randolph Co., MO, there is a "Register of Communicants", Mrs. Stonie Terrell...admission 28 Sep 1890.

The below may be a sibling:

  M i Thurman TERRILL was born on 16 Apr 1888. He died in May 1971.

I got the birth and death dates off the SSN web page and am assuming that this is the same person. It indicates that his residence at death was Peoria, Maricopa, AZ 85345 and that his ssn card was issued originally in AZ bef. 1951.
I have no information as to whether or not he had a family.

James Milton TERRILL [Parents] was born on 22 Jan 1865 in , Randolph Co., Missouri. He died on 30 Aug 1931. James married Lula POWELL.

"Jim" was a farmer. Lula taught at Terrill School south of Moberly, MO. They had no children.

Lula POWELL was born on 16 Nov 1875. She married James Milton TERRILL.


Robert Greene TERRILL [Parents] was born on 12 Oct 1866 in , Randolph Co., Missouri. He died after 1946. Robert married Lena HORNER.

Went by the name of "Green". See his biography in the "History of Randolph Co., MO.", 1920, p. 382. He later separated from his wife and moved in with his brother, Vint. His wife moved to the Southwest U.S. He died after 1946, since he was in his sister Elizabeth's will when she died that year.

ROBERT GREENE TERRILL, county clerk of Randolph county, and a resident of Huntsville, Missouri, is a native son of the state, born on a farm near Moberly on October 12, 1866. He is a descendant of a most interesting family on both the paternal and maternal sides, and such brief data as are at hand are thus here incorporated, with relation to the respective families of the subject, in writing briefly of his life and work.

The TERRILL family was founded in the United States by William TERRILL, the descendant of the house of TYRRELL, as it was once known, of Buchhamshire, England. He came to Virginia in 1657, first settling in King William County, then Gloucester county, and later in Hanover county. He was graduated from Oxford, prior to his removal to the New World, and while yet in college transferred his alligience from the Roman Catholic to the Episcopal or Church of England, faith, for which act of infidelity he was banished to America, where his father was already established and was the owner of large landed estates. William TERRILL was born in 1635, and died in 1729, full of years, leaving to his family a name untarnished by act of his, and one which has ever been maintained in the land in which he established it. He married Susannah WATERS, of England, and the daughter of the Earl of Waters, and the direct line of ancestry from the time of
William TERRILL down to the subject is briefly given as follows:

Timothy TERRILL, the son of William and Susannah (WATERS) TERRILL, was born in New Kent, Virginia, in 1668, he married Elizabeth FOSTER, and they became the parents of Rober TERRILL, born in Orange county, Virginia in 1697 and dying in 1786. He married Mary FOSTER. Their son, Edmund TERRILL, also of Orange county, Virginia, born in 1740, and dying in 1784 married Margaret WILLIS, a daughter of Colonel WILLIS, whose wife was Mildred WASHINGTON, an aunt of General George WASHINGTON. Robert TERRILL, the son of Edmund and Margaret (WILLIS) TERRILL, born in 1777 and Married Mary LACY, and they became the parents of William TERRILL, born in 1807 and he married Ann CALVIN, dying in 1869. Their son, John Robert TERRILL, born in 1829 and dying in 1911, married Anne ROBERTS, and these parents gave to the world Robert Greene TERRILL, the subject of this review.

Of the life of John Robert TERRILL but little may here be said for lack of space, but it may at least be set down that he was born in 1829 in Greenup county, Kentucky. His wife, Anne ROBERTS, was the daughter of
William ROBERTS, and hse was born in 1839. The father, John R. TERRILL, was a farmer and a staunch adherent of the Missionary Baptist Church. He was a democrat in his political allegance and ever a highly respected citizen in the community which so long represented his home and the center of his business activities. His death in 1911 was a distinct loss to the district, and he will long be remembered among the wide circle of friends and acquaintances.

Their son, Robert Greene TERRILL, was educated in Moberly high school, after which he attended the Winchester Normal at Winchester, Tennessee. He thereafter devoted his attention to farming interests, in which he met with a splendid degree of practical success, and continued to be thus employed, until he was elected to the office of county clerk of Randolph county in 1911, as the candidate of the Democratic party, in whose interests he has ever taken a wholesome action. His regime thus far has been marked by a worthy service, and it is evident to all that his election was the result of excellent judgment on the part of the voters of the county.

On April 22, 1897, Mr. TERRILL was united in marriage with Miss Lena HORNER, of Huntsville, Missouri. She was a graduate of Shorter College, in Rome, Georgia, and took a postgraduate course at Wesleyan College, Macon Georgia. She is the daughter of James S. and Louisa (Kingsbury) HORNER. Her paternal grandfather, Major HORNER, was made lieutenant-colonel of the Tenth Regiment, First Brigade and First Division of the Missouri Militia under Governor MCNAIR in 1822, and became colonel in the same regiment in 1824. He was commissioned paymaster-general of the Missouri Militia in the Morman war by Governor BOGGS in 1837, and was also appointed to the same office in the Black Hawk war, by Governor REYNOLDS. Before coming to Missouri he has served in the war of 1812 as orderly sergeant. He was a
member of the Missouri legislature during the war which met at the call of Governor JACKSON in Neosho, when the act of secession was passed. he was at one time county judge of Randolph county, and was in many other ways prominent in the public life of the district.

Two children have been born to Robert Greene TERRILL and his wife, --Louisa Rubey, born in Huntsville, Missouri, October 3, 1899, and John Vincent TERRILL, born June 6, 1901, at the same place. The family are
members of the Methodist Episcopal church, South.

Lena HORNER was born on 7 Nov 1866. She married Robert Greene TERRILL.

Separated from husband and moved to Amarillo, TX. The husband's bio says:

"On April 22, 1897, Mr. TERRILL was united in marriage with Miss Lena HORNER, of Huntsville, Missouri. She was a graduate of Shorter College, in Rome, Georgia, and took a postgraduate course at Wesleyan College, Macon Georgia. She is the daughter of James S. and Louisa (Kingsbury) HORNER. Her paternal grandfather, Major HORNER, was made lieutenant-colonel of the Tenth Regiment, First Brigade and First Division of the Missouri Militia under Governor MCNAIR in 1822, and became colonel in the same regiment in 1824. He was commissioned paymaster-general of the Missouri Militia in the Morman war by Governor BOGGS in 1837, and was also appointed to the same office in the Black Hawk war, by Governor REYNOLDS.

There is a record of John S. Roberts marriage to Mary J. Bennett on 16 Dec 1879 in Randolph Co., MO. Since she was age 43 when they married, Bennett may not be her maiden name, but may be her widow's name.

Fought for Confederacy in Civil War and was wounded. Walked with a limp for the rest of his life. Became a banker, and was called "Judge." Had no children. Left his money to his niece, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Terrill (#2704), dtr. of his brother John Robert. Was probably named after his uncle Arthur Parker, the first husband of Elizabeth Terrill (his father's sister).

This was in the newspaper, Moberly Daily Monitor: "Probate Judge -- A. P. Terrill, Huntsville"

This was about his marriage in the local newspaper (THH):

Terrill, A.P. {Judge} -- mar 8 May 1873 Josephine Patton at bride's mother Mary A. Patton, by Rev. W.B. Auderson; THH 14 May 1873.

The below biography is on him (with slightly different dob):

"History of Northeast Missouri" Edited by Walter Williams, Published by The Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago Illinois 1913 Three Volumes

page 1882 [a photograph of A. P. TERRILL, with signature, accompanies the bio]

HON. ARTHUR PARKER TERRILL. Among the worthy citizens of Northeastern Missouri none are more worthy of being commemorated in its annals than the Hon. Arthur Parker TERRILL, ex-judge of the probate court of Randolph county, and president of the Bank of Moberly and of the Chatauqua Association. For more than seventy years he has lived within the borders of Randolph county, during which time he has been prominent in its social, business and professional and public affairs, fairly earning a reputation for honorable dealing with his fellow citizens, to such a degree as to make his name a synonym for all that is honorable in business and correct in morals. He is descended from an old and honored family, his great-great-grandfather, Edmond TERRILL, being a soldier in the Revolutionary war, and the husband of a Miss WILLIS, whose father married an aunt of Gen. George WASHINGTON.

Judge TERRILL was born in Greenup county, Kentucky, Feburary 15, 1838, and is a son of William and Ann (CALVIN) TERRILL. William TERRILL was born in the Blue Grass State, and moved to Missouri in 1844, settling in Randolph county and making his home three and one half miles south of Moberly, where he owned a valuable farm at the time of his death, although he died in Kentucky while on a visit to that state in 1870. His wife was born in 1809 in Kentucky, and died on the home farm in Randolph county, Missouri, in 1899. Seven children were born to this union: John R., who died in December, 1911, leaving a family in Randolph county; James B., died in 1857; Elizabeth, deceased, who was the wife of W. S. CHRISTIAN; Sallie, deceased, who was the wife of John ROBERTS; N. G., who lost his life while serving under Gen. MORGAN, in Kentucky, during the Civil war; Arthur Parker; and Samuel G., who is deceased.

Judge TERRILL attended the common schools of Randolph county, and subsequently became a student in Mount Pleasant College, at that time located at Huntsville, and William Jewell College, at Liberty Missouri. At
the age of seventeen years he commenced teaching school, and was so occupied at the time of his enlistment in General PRICE;s army, operating in Missouri. In an engagement that took place about two and one half miles south of Moberly, he was severely wounded, breaking his leg, and recieved an honorable discharge on account of disability, being at the time captain of his company. Returning home, he resumed school teaching and commenced the study of law, finally working in a law office until he was admitted to
the bar in 1873. At that time he was engaged in the practice of his profession and was so engaged until 1908. During the same year of his admittance to practice, he was elected probate judge of Randolph county, an office in which he served with distinction for six years. In political matters the judge has always been a staunch Democrat. For a number of years he had been vice-president of the Bank of Moberly, and on the death of the president, in 1908, he succeeded to that office, which he holds at the present time. He is a consistent member of the Christian church, and is teacher of the Terrill class in the Sunday school, named in his honor. Fraternally, he is a member of the blue lodge of Masonry, and is a member of the Commercial club and president of the Chautauqua Association for 1912.

In 1873 Judge TERRILL was united in marriage with Miss Josephine PATTON, who was born in Randolph county, and died here in 1902, daughter of James and Mary A. (WILCOX) PATTON. Judge TERRILL may well be termed a representative man; his has been an honorable career, and he is an example of honest perserverance winning the smiles of fortune and a handsome competency.
