Downing Rucker SMITH [Parents] was born about 1715. He married Catherine BOEHM.

Catherine BOEHM was born about 1717. She married Downing Rucker SMITH.

Last name could also be spelled Beam, Beamon. This is from John Blankenbaker's 388 note.

They had the following children:

  M i William Downing SMITH
  M ii Fountain SMITH

John DEER was born about 1750. He married Mary BLANKENBAKER.

See notes under his wife.

Mary BLANKENBAKER [Parents] was born on 29 Sep 1754. She married John DEER.

From Blankenbaker's note no. 784 at:

"Frederick Baumgartner left a will in which he named a daughter Dorothy, but not a daughter Eve. (There were also four sons: Adam, George, Frederick, and Joel.) After the father Frederick died, the mother, Catherine, married John Deer. There are no clues as to Catherine's maiden name. John Deer left a will and in it he left three pounds each to Dorothy and Eve (given by their married names in 1781). This has resulted in some confusion as to the status of Dorothy and Eve, with respect to John Deer, who did not state the women were his daughters. Dorothy is known, from the will of Frederick Baumgartner, to be Frederick's daughter. Eve gave a disposition once that Dorothy was her sister, and the current belief is that Eve was a daughter of Frederick Baumgartner, but was born after he died.

Six children are named by John Deer, who are believed to be his children: John, Catherine, Susannah, Moses, Mary, and Elizabeth. Mary and Elizabeth were apparently unmarried in 1781, the year in which the will was written. Catherine is named as Catherine Rider, and Susannah is named as Susannah Brown. At present, this is the extent of the knowledge about the four daughters of John Deer.

In the following, reliance is placed on information furnished by Gene Dear, a descendant of Simeon Dear. John Deer married Mary Blankenbaker, the daughter of Christopher Blankenbaker and his wife Christina Finks. Mary was born 29 Sep 1754. The husband of Mary had not been known until Gene Dear found a Supreme Court case in Virginia, which named all of the children and, for the women, their husbands. It seems probable that John Deer, Jr., was the eldest son (and probably child) of John, Sr., and Catherine Deer, and he was born about 1749.

Gene has given me the children of John, Jr., and Mary (Blankenbaker) Deer as follows:

Reuben (1775 1882) m. Elizabeth Gaar (1775 1830) on 15 Dec 1795 in Madison Co., VA and the family moved to Kentucky. The children are given in the Garr Genealogy.
Lewis (1777 ), m.1 Peggy Crisler in 1801, and m.2 Nancy Wilhoit.
Ephraim (1783 ).
Simeon (1786 ), m. Lucy Major in 1802.
Elizabeth m. Amos Roberts in 1802.
Jeremiah (1788 ), never married.
Sarah (Sally) m. Jeremiah Clore in 1808.
Abner (1793 ), m. Rosanna Weaver in 1815.
Jonas (1797 ), m. Elizabeth Crigler in 1818.
Mildred, nfi."

And in his next note, Blankenbaker says:

"John Deer, who married Catherine, the widow of Frederick Baumgartner, had six children by her. The four daughters are basically unknowns except for the married names of two. The children of the two sons are known. In the last note, the children of #3. John (and Mary Blankenbaker) were given. The wife of the other son, Moses (#6), is unknown. They had eight children:

Lucy, m. William French in 1811.
John, nfi.
Elizabeth, m. John Ford in 1816.
Mary, m. John Dawson in 1815.
Larkin, who was born about 1794.
Moses (Jr.), who was born about 1797.
Thomas, who was born about 1799.
Jermima, nfi."

And further notes carry the Deer/Dear line further down. He says in one:
"In searching for the records of the Deers in the Hebron Church Register, one must generally use the German form of the name, Hirsch"

Info from [email protected] (Elaine) 11 Dec 1996

Mary L. was known only as "Lena" later in life. Her Father sent her to college in TN, which was rare in those times when educating a female was thought to be a waste of time and money. She taught Latin and Algebra for many years and had married the Rev. J.W. Henderson. They spent their lives "preaching" and "teaching", mostly to the Indians in Arizona and New Mexico.
They had 3 sons and 1 daughter. First child was born in Missouri and the rest in Iowa. So they left Missouri between 1890 and 1893, and left Iowa for the southwest in the early 1900's.

Hi Linda,
Been a long time since we connected, but I read your post in the genealogy forum today and see another link. Darned if I can remember telling you this before--but my latest Manning was Lela (she was b. 1863 in Cairo, MO) who married my Ggrfather, Rev. James W. Henderson. They met and married while attending (both of em) the university of Missouri. He recieved his Bachelor of Divinity in 1890. He was a Presbyterian minister. He did missionary work in NM and AZ with the Indians and she traveled all over the country with him, dragging their 4 kids along. (My redheaded grandfather remembered living on an Indian reservation when he was a kid) I've recently been in contact with the daughter of one of those 4 kids. Will go over the letters again and see if I find more Manning info from them. I also have Lena's death certificate. It states her mother as Martha A.Burton Manning and father as William F. Manning. I have the census' for 1900 and 1920 for James and Lela and kids. The 1900 says Lela's father was born in AL, the 1920 say he's born in IL, and Lela's death certificate says he's born in MO. Also in 1920 Martha is living with James and Lela, so William is probably deceased. The Presbyteran link is strong here.

Am still without that other generation, or William's siblings, or if he was a
minister too.

Let me know what you've come up with and I'll do the same. Good Luck.

Elaine Stewart
