Also, got from him on 25 Oct 1998:
I am looking for children of Claude & Emma myself. I do know that there were other Dusky's living in Eldon & New Franklin but cannot relate them together. Mark Dusky & Etta May Phillips had a child by the name of George Kenneth Dusky in 1914, he was 21 y/o when he applied for his ss number in 1936. I am working of trying to get the obituary for Claude & Emma, to see if it lists children for this couple. will let you know what becomes of this.

Isaac RUNYON [Parents] [scrapbook] was born about 1787 in KY. He died in 1840/1850 in MO. Isaac married Sarah WINN on 2 Jun 1812 in Madison Co., KY.

The Isaac Runyon here, who m. Sarah Winn, may not be the Isaac who is the son of Phineas Runyon, as he supposedly m. Sarah Wilson. That needs to be investigated further. See picture here in scrapbook.

This John may or may not be the same as the other one. There were several Winn couples in Howard County about that time.

There is a Land Certificate 2508 from the US States of America to "Isaac Runyan of Howard County...according to the provisions of the Act of Congress of...1820, entitled 'An Act making further provision for the sale of Public Lands, for the East half of the North-east quarter of Section twenty-five in Township fifty-one, of Range Seventeen, in the District of lands offered for sale at Franklin, Missouri, containing eighty acres" It has the "signature" of President John Quincy Adams, which was put there by someone in the General Land Office. It is dated 10th of January, 1828. I have a photocopy of this land certificate and it is under "scrapbook" here.

Got this from Tom Runyan: Isaac Runyon to Sarah Winn, 02 Jun 1812 in Madison County.

The following received 9/99 gives his possible parents:

"According to Runyon Genealogy by Robert and Amos Runyon, Isaac was the son of Phineas Runyon and Charity Coates. (see pg 122-23) At least they list an Isaac who married in 1812 in Madison Co., KY. Whether this is provable or not I do not know." Nettie Weaver

This is part of the line given by Tom Runyan on the Runyon group also:

The Isaac that I capitalized above may be this one, but this has not been verified as yet. 15 children are a lot for one mother. Also, under Phineas' notes, it is evident that the Isaac there has a wife with a different surname. Our Isaac m. Sarah Winn 2 Jun 1812 Madison Co., KY. The Isaac listed under Phineas' notes as his son m. Sarah Wilson 1 May 1812 Madison Co., KY. But work by one person seems to bear out this connection to Phineas and I have put it there for the time being. It needs to be verified.

Henry Harrison WAYLAND [Parents] [scrapbook] was born on 2 Sep 1843 in , Chariton Co., Missouri. He died on 2 Jul 1921 in Hammond, , Louisiana and was buried in Salisbury, , Missouri. Henry married Anna Belle JACKSON on 7 Mar 1871 in , Randolph Co., Missouri.

Eli named him after Eli's uncle, Henry Harrison, who married Eli's mother's sister, Polly Melone. To see his photo, click on scrapbook.

Marriage: "Wayland, Henry -- of Salisbury, mar. 7 Mar. 1871 Belle Jackson of Rand., at residence of H.T. Fort in Ft. Henry, by Rev. Y.R. Pitts." The Huntsville Herald newspaper, 15 Mar 1871. Marriage record is listed in Book A, page 417 at the Randolph Co. Courthouse. Can get a copy by sending them two dollars (may go up). Filing date was 25 Mar 1871.

The site at: http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/Bunker/3802/battles.htm says that on Sept 4, 1862 there was a skirmish near Prairie Chapel, and on Sept 6 there was a skirmish near Roanoke. This is near where Henry lived.

Henry was a veteran of the Civil War, fighting with Poindexter. 5 Sep 1862 captured and in a prison camp in Alton, Illinois, but released on oath of allegiance. He started fighting again about 10/64, was recaptured, which was an automatic death sentence. Step-mother traveled on the train to Washington, D.C., and got a personal audience with President Abraham Lincoln, winning a presidential pardon for her foolish young nephew stepson. All in his two obituaries. He tried to raise sheep by proxy in Texas and made $10,000 first year and lost all second year when the cattlemen ran his men off. He owned at one time 640 acres in Texas and another time 640 acres in Louisiana. He was the owner and operator of a store in Hammond, LA for the 12 years preceding his death in Hammond.

The book "Shades of Gray" by Neil Block 1996, says:

"Wayland, Henry H. Pvt. Matlock's Co. Poindexter's Mo Calvary. Captured in Chariton Co. Sept. 5, and sent to Gratiot Street on the 25th. To alton on Nov 27, and released on parole January 20, 1863. He attended the Nevada reunion in 1890 and listed Moberly as his home. His wife wrote to Missouri in 1922 trying to get Henry's service record. He was born in 1843, died in 1921 and is buried in Salisbury city cemetery. Ref: Confederate Service Records; Chariton County Cemetery Records; 1860 Randolph Co. Census, Silver Creek Townshop, b. VA, age 24."

Here is obit from Moberly, MO paper at time of death copy difficult to read:

Headlines: "JUDGE WAYLAND, A FORMER RESIDENT OF MOBERLY DIES Succumbed at Home in Hammond, Louisiana, Sunday, Funeral in Salisbury. WAS PROMINENT HERE FOR MANY YEARS He built First Electric Light Plant. Mother Obtained Release as War Prisoner From Lincoln. Burial Tomorrow."

News Story: "Judge H.H. Wayland, who for a number of years was one of the most prominent citizens of Moberly, and at one time a member of the Randolph County Court, died Sunday morning at his residence in Hammond, Louisana. The body is now enroute and will pass through here tomorrow on No. 8, destined for Salisbury where the funeral services will be held tomorrow at 3 p.m.

Although he would have been 78 years old had he lived until September, he continued to actively engage a business at Hammond, where he owned a food and grain store, until about three weeks ago when he was attacked with the illness that caused his death.

(Subheadline: In Business Here) Judge Wayland was one of the earlier settlers of Moberly, and lived here until about twelve years ago when he went to Louisiana. He was the head of a number of business enterprises here, and built the first electric light plant the city ever had on the present site of the Moberly Foundry and Machine Company; he built and operated a rake and stacker factory, and continued its operation until it was destroyed by fire. In the later years of his life here, he was a traveling salesman.

(Subheadline: Freed By Lincoln) He was a private during the civil war in the Confederate Army. During the course of the war he, with four others, was captured by Federal troops and held as a prisoner. His mother, who lived at Salisbury, went to Washington, and after an interview with President Lincoln, her son was released. He married Miss Belle Jackson at Fort Henry, on March 5, 1871. He is survived by three sons and a daughter. They are: Lloyd of this city; Will of Tennessee; Harry of Hammond, Louisana, and Mrs. Perry Davis of Brunswick. He was a member of the Masonic order, being a Knight Templer, and of the Baptist Church."

He was not what we presently call a judge. He was elected to the county court, which we now call a commission. So he was a county commissioner. In those days, they called them judges.

His Civil War records are found in National Archives in these documents:

Roll #73, Poindexter's Regiment Cavalry, Q -Y

#M598 Selected Records of the War Department Relating To Confederate Prisoners of War 1861-1865.

Roll #14, Records Relating to Individual Prisons or Stations: Alton, IL., Military Prison: 1861-1865*

*The records above show him to be captured in Chariton Co., MO on 3 Sep 1862, rank private, regiment Poindexters, released on oath of allegiance on 20 Jan 1863.

After Union authorities in St. Louis started the E.M.M. men were forced to join, go to prison or take to the brush. This accounts for most of the later enlistment's after the fall of 1862. During Price's Raid in 1864 boys of 12 to 15 years old went to join father, brothers & cousins that were with his Army. Some joined after families had been mistreated by local Militia & Union Bushwhackers. There were always Confederate Partisans in most neighborhoods whose primary job it was to get recruits south to the army.

On 8 Apr 1862 General Price was commissioned in the Provisional Army of the Confederate (P.A.C.S.) All MSG members were encouraged to do likewise. Over the coming months, most did, but at the Battle of Corinth, MS, Oct 1862, there were still men who belonged to the MSG. When Price's Command was ordered East of the Mississippi River (many men chose to stay on the West bank) companies were formed there & still some men returned home to take the fight to the Union & protect their homes & families in guerrilla warfare.

Here is the story on the Federal prison where Henry was sent:

"The Alton prison opened in 1833 as the first Illinois State Penitentiary and was closed in 1860, when the last prisoners were moved to a new facility at Joliet. By late in 1861 an urgent need arose to relieve the overcrowding at 2 St. Louis prisons. On December 31, 1861, Major General Henry Halleck, Commander of the Department of the Missouri, ordered Lieutenant-Colonel James B. McPherson to Alton for an inspection of the closed penitentiary. Colonel McPherson reported that the prison could be made into a military prison and house up to 1,750 prisoners with improvements estimated to cost $2,415.

The first prisoners arrived at the Alton Federal Military Prison on February 9, 1862 and members of the 13 th U.S. Infantry were assigned as guards, with Colonel Sidney Burbank commanding.

During the next three years over 11,764 Confederate prisoners would pass through the gates of the Alton Prison. Of the four different classes of prisoners housed at Alton, Confederate soldiers made up most of the population. Citizens, including several women, were imprisoned here for treasonable actions, making anti-Union statements, aiding an escaped Confederate, etc. Others, classified as bushwhackers or guerillas, were imprisoned for acts against the government such as bridge burning and railroad vandalism.

Conditions in the prison were harsh and the mortality rate was above average for a Union prison. Hot, humid summers and cold Midwestern winters took a heavy toll on prisoners already weakened by poor nourishment and inadequate clothing. The prison was overcrowded much of the time and sanitary facilities were inadequate. Pneumonia and dysentery were common killers but contagious diseases such as smallpox and rubella were the most feared. When smallpox infection became alarmingly high in the winter of 1862 and spring of 1863, a quarantine hospital was located on an island across the Mississippi River from the prison. Up to 300 prisoners and soldiers died and are buried on the island, now under water. A cemetery in North Alton that belonged to the State of Illinois was used for most that died. A monument there lists 1,534 names of Confederate soldiers that are known to have died. An additional number of civilians and Union soldiers were victims of disease and illness. During the war several different units were assigned to serve as guards at Alton. The Thirteenth U.S. Infantry was followed by the Seventy-seventh Ohio Infantry, the Thirty-seventh Iowa Infantry, the Tenth Kansas Infantry and the One Hundred Forty-fourth Illinois Infantry. Formed at Alton specifically to serve as prison guards, the Illinois 144th was almost completely made up of Alton area residents.

The prison closed July 7, 1865 when the last prisoners were released or sent to St. Louis. The buildings were torn down over the next decades and the land was eventually used by the city as a park named after the Joel Chandler Harris character, "Uncle Remus," from Song of the South. Stone from the prison buildings is found in walls and other structures all over the Alton area." Found at: http://www.altonweb.com/history/civilwar/confed/index.html

Anna Belle JACKSON [Parents] [scrapbook] was born on 2 Dec 1853 in , Howard Co., Missouri. She died on 28 Mar 1923 and was buried in Salisbury Cem, , Missouri. Anna married Henry Harrison WAYLAND on 7 Mar 1871 in , Randolph Co., Missouri.

Living with mother and grandmother on 1860 census. To see her photo, click on scrapbook..

Belle is found twice in the 1870 census. Once with her mother and stepfather on p.77 of the Randolph Co. census, and again on p. 61 of the Saltspring township of Randolph Co. in the household of J.C. Shafer along with two persons identified as teachers. She is with John Fort, age 16 male, and R. (Rebecca) Wayland age 19 female. They are obviously in a boarding school. Rebecca is the sister of Henry, and she may have introduced Belle, age 18, to her brother, a mature Civil War veteran of 27, and they were married. I heard of this in the Salisbury Cemetary: Wayland, Infant son of Henry & Belle d. Oct 27, 1871. He was probably premature as they were only married in March of that year. Her tombstone has her dates of only 1853-1922, a year different on death. I have a photo of her, identified by my Aunt Virginia, AnnaBelle.jpg. She is wearing black as a widow, and she outlived husband by two years, so it can be dated as being about 1921-1923. Virginia says that she remembers the body being in state in her home and that was devastating to her at the age of six.

They had the following children:

There is a Henry Sears listed on page 326 of the Randolph Co. MO census as being between 60 and 70 years of age. Probably the original Sears in Missouri...probably Petis' grandfather. He is on the same page as Henry Wayland, age 40 to 50. His marriage to Mary is found in the newspaper, "The Randolph Citizen," pub. on 6 Feb. 1858. Within 3 years of this, the following Sears got married: A.F. Sears to H.F. Holman; Levi Sears to Rebecca J. Ash; O.P. Sears to Susanna Bratcher. These may have been brothers. Petis is mentioned as still being alive when son John Jasper died in May 1928.
