Alfred Finks WAYLAND [Parents] 1 was born on 29 Jan 1815 in , Boone Co., Kentucky. He died on 23 Mar 1898 in Campbell Hill, , Illinois and was buried in Looney Springs C, Jackson Co., Illinois. Alfred married Frances STEVENS on 1 Apr 1834.

He is listed on p. 157 of the Ralls Co. MO 1850 census, next to Catharine Crigler, probably a widow and perhaps originally Catharine Wayland, although she could also be sister to his wife. One of his descendants with whom I have been corresponding, Harley Wayland, says that Alfred F. had six boys and four girls. His biography says that he was 6 ft. tall, 165 lbs., medium dark skin and hair. Fine sense of humor. Stern, demanding strict obedience from his children. A believer in honesty and fair dealing. My source, Harley Wayland, has a tintype photo of Alfred. His marriage date comes from his descendant, Ivan Stewart, 2805 Tudor Road, Oklahoma City, OK 73127, who gave the info on the line down from Lucy Wayland and Robert Stewart. I do not have the name of their first child, who died in infancy. Alfred may have been born in Campbell Co., Kty., rather than Boone Co. His father lived in Campbell County in 1820-1830, and he married in Campbell Co.

He is found in 1860 Ralls Co. MO census, Saverton TWP, spelled phonetically Whaland. It is interesting that there is a Mary, age 22, listed on the 1860 census who is not in the 1850 census, and also a 6 year old child, Eliza J., not previously listed in the family. Possibility exists that Eliza is the dtr. of Mary (illigitimate or widow) and Mary is not dtr. of Alfred, but a relative.

This note was found on ancestry.com and I don't understand it:

COFFMAN, Elias S. & Jennetta SHAVER, 31 Dec. 1829, m by Lewis Conner, b Alfred F. Wayland, c by John Shaver, A-112, Boone Co., KY

Frances STEVENS [Parents] was born on 3 Mar 1814 in , Kenton Co., Kentucky. She married Alfred Finks WAYLAND on 1 Apr 1834.

Biography says that she was of medium height, heavy in weight, black hair, dark skin, very dark eyes. German descent. A very quiet, pleasing disposition. Came from family of 10 children; 6 boys and 4 girls. Her marriage record lists her as "daughter of Sarah Stevens."

They had the following children:

  F i Catherine WAYLAND
  M ii Henry J. WAYLAND 1 was born in 1838 in , Boone Co., Kentucky. He died before 1890 in , Monroe Co., Illinois.

His father, Alfred, filed on Henry's military pension in 1890 from Arkansas, application no. 462457, certificate no. 444167. I would think that Henry would have had to have been deceased at that time, so have indicated this on date of death.
  F iii Angeline WAYLAND
  M iv Lewis WAYLAND was born on 10 Oct 1841 in , Boone Co., Kentucky. He died in , Ralls Co., Missouri.

Idora Wayland lists this Lewis in the family, but others do not. He may have died in childhood.
  M v John C. WAYLAND
  M vi Albert Gallington WAYLAND
  M vii George Washington WAYLAND
  M viii James William WAYLAND
  F ix Sarah Frances WAYLAND
  F x Eliza J. WAYLAND was born in 1854 in , , Missouri.

Found with the family in the 1860 census, but nothing more is known of her. She is not listed in family records and may have died in childhood. She also could be a relative and not a daughter. Remote chance she might be the dtr. of Mary, age 22 in the 1860 census (illigitimate) and Mary might be a relative visiting from out of town, avoiding a scandal back home. Mary is not found in the 1850 census with Alfred and is not listed in family records either.

I wonder if this could possibly be her:

[p.188] Mrs. Antoinette M. Kemeys-Tynte.
DAR ID Number: 52400
Born in Jacksonville, Ill.
Wife of Fortesque Kemeys-Tynte.
Descendant of Henry Allen.

Granddaughter of Daniel Carroll Montgomery and Katherine Allen (b. 1799), his wife, m. 1825.
Gr-granddaughter of Henry Allen and Catherine McConchie, his wife, m. 1781.
Henry Allen (1764-1831) served as a private, 1781, in Capt. Armistead Minor's company, 3rd Virginia regiment. He was born in England; died in Culpeper County, Va.

  F xi Lucy WAYLAND

T. STEVENS was born about 1790. He married Sarah TRAIL.

First name probably Thomas, according to a descendant, Linda Fox, Rt. 2, Box 92, Arnett, OK 73832 (phone 405-885-7705)

Sarah TRAIL was born about 1790. She married T. STEVENS.

Spelling of last name is uncertain, according to Linda Fox.

They had the following children:

  F i Frances STEVENS

George Washington H. WALKER was born in Jan 1838 in , , Ohio. He died about 1913 in , Baylor Co., Texas. George married Catherine WAYLAND on 27 Mar 1864 in , Madison Co., Illinois.

Dates for birth and dates are from great-grand daughter, Lynn Walker Armstrong, 924 Sandalwood, Richardson, TX 75080, phone: 214-231-3703. This man's parents were Daniel E. Walker, b. NJ and Rachel ___, b. PA.

Catherine WAYLAND [Parents] 1 was born in 1836 in , Boone Co., Kentucky. She died in 1880 in Gainesville, Cooke Co., Texas. Catherine married George Washington H. WALKER on 27 Mar 1864 in , Madison Co., Illinois.

Her great granddaughter spells #1542's name "Kathrine" I do not know which is correct. Catherine died giving birth to children, twins, who also died. They were living close to Gainesville, TX at time. The affadavit filed with Social Security for Clara Belle, with the help of Fannie Mae, says that Clara Belle was the seventh living child of Catherine Wayland, but my source and her granddaughter, Norma Bacher, is aware of only three. It does not sound like, from the description of the treatment of Clara Belle by her father, he was likely to be much loved by the older children and they may have all disappeared when they came of age, like her brother Charlie, since their mother was gone. Norma Bacher says that a Mrs. L.H. Pearce of Abernathy signed the affadavit to get the birth certificate for Clara Belle for Social Security. It is not known if she is related. Her marriage to George is found in Marriage Record Number 559, Book 6, page 118 of Madison County, Illinois records. His name is given as "George W.H. Walker" and hers as "Catharine Wheyland."

They had the following children:

  F i Fanny Mae WALKER

  M iii Charles Clinton WALKER
  M iv Thomas N. WALKER was born in 1869.
  F v Estelle L. WALKER was born in 1871.

William CRAVEN was born about 1840. He married Angeline WAYLAND on 28 Oct 1866 in , Boone Co., Kentucky.

Spouse's name from Ivan Stewart

Angeline WAYLAND [Parents] 1 was born in 1840 in , Boone Co., Kentucky. She died in Rockwood, , Illinois. Angeline married William CRAVEN on 28 Oct 1866 in , Boone Co., Kentucky.

Info on spouse from Ivan Stewart. More recent information from Idora Wayland says she married a second time to a "Mount." Linda Fox, Rt. 2, Box 92, Arnett, OK 73832 wrote me in 9/96 and gave children to marriage: Matilda Martitia and Sarah F. There was no comma between first two names, so I am uncertain if they are one person or two persons.

In 9/99 I received this from Linda:

"I think I have found Angeline Wayland in Tazwell Co., ILL. married to Jasper Mount. 1870 census of Tazwell Co. Ill. list: Jasper Mount age 23, Angeline age 23, Abigail age 1"

John C. WAYLAND [Parents] 1 was born in 1843 in , Ralls Co., Missouri. He died in Campbell Hill, , Illinois. John married Mary A. SELLMAN on 16 Dec 1869 in , , Missouri.

I have a copy of his service in Co. H.D., 30 Missouri Infantry as a Pvt., so he was a Civil War Veteran.

Mary A. SELLMAN was born about 1845. She married John C. WAYLAND on 16 Dec 1869 in , , Missouri.

Wife's name from Ivan Stewart

Albert Gallington WAYLAND [Parents] 1 was born on 7 Aug 1845 in , Ralls Co., Missouri. He died on 1 Dec 1929 and was buried in Allmon Cemetary, Ellis Co., Oklahoma. Albert married Evelyn J. BARROW on 1 Jan 1871.

Born near New London. Moved with wife to Oklahoma Territory in 1902/03. His biography says that he was 6 ft. tall, 185 lbs., black hair, brown eyes, fair skin. "Scotch-Irish and German descent" Jolly and lovable disposition. Enjoyed old time singing schools. "A man who was faithful to family and friends. Active in church and community interests. Civil War veteran, serving 21 months as a soldier in the Union Army. Pioneered a claim in Ellis County in 1902 (Oklahoma became a state in 1907). His grandson, Harley Wayland still lives on this land, and in the house that A.G. built when he arrived (since improved on). Died age 84.

Josephine born Dec. 1888, age 11; son Raymond born Sept. 1889, age 10. All, including wife born in Illinois. I have a photocopy of a "general index card" listing him as being a Priv. in Co. D-C, 2 Illinois Cavalry. A pension was filed under "Invalid" on 8 April 1885, giving the same company. This might be Albert filing under a disability, or on behalf of one of his children, who was disabled, for veteran's pension.
