HAGER, Malinda

Information on this family is from: Bertha Gard, PO Box 60, Clear Lake Oaks, CA 95423, obtained 8/92.

This is from an unknown source and is believed to apply to this couple:

Story told by Edgar L. Hively, as told to him by an eye witness, the late Bob Benbrook of Wideman, Izard Co., Arkansas, to Clem Hively: With four very youngs girls to raise, and no wife, life must have looked very bleak for Michael. There was living in the Benbrook household an orphan girl, perhaps late teen age or early twenties, named Malinda Hager. Whether or not, or how well, she was known by Michael Hively is unknown. But a few days after the death of Amanda Wayland Hively, Michael came on horseback to the Benbrook home. He talked privately with Malinda for perhaps an hour or longer. They seemed to have arrived at
an agreement, as she packed all her belongings in a sack (pillowcase?), climbed on the horse behind Micahel, and they rode off and got married. She not only accepted a short emergency courtship, but gave Michael an additional ten children, one of whom she named Amanda after her predecessor. A remarkable woman, indeed

Clem is a descendant of Michael and Malinda. Janis Wilson says it is "not true".

Year of birth is given as 1840 by another person, same day and month.

Daniel HIVELY was LaDoris Weber's ancestor. Haven't been able to reach her at her old address for a long time.

This line also connects to Bernie Moore

Regarding Jane Hively: She is buried at White Bead Cemetery in Pauls Valley, OK.

Regarding James Finis Trimble: He donated the land for the Trimble Campground Church and the Trimble Campground Cemetery at Dolph.

The Trimbles parents had died so James raised his little sister and brought her to Arkansas after his marriage. Martha was nine when she came to AR.
