For this, he was awarded the 'Killermount' Estate, meaning 'strong' in German Gaul. A new coat of arms was granted 'Stark alias Fortiorum Fortia Factai1, which means 'brave deeds of brave men.

His estate was small, which he devised to his wife, Rachel and youngest son Walter, except for a yearling he left to a grandson namesake, Thomas, son of James.

Notes for JEREMIAH STARK:

Will of Jeremiah Stark

Jeremiah spent his early youth in Stafford County, Virginia, being nineteen years of age when his family immigrated to South Carolina. They settled on Gilders Creek, tributary of Enoree, as per this portion of old 96th District that became Newberry County.

The Kings Creek Meeting House provided a place where neighbors worshipped and socialized, Kings Creek getting its name from Charles King an early settler. There, Jeremiah Stark met and married Mary King, eligible daughter of Charles King and Charity Pennington. Jeremiah's older brother, Thomas Jr., had married Ruth King, sister of Mary. The entire family connection was active in the struggle of the Colonies against Great Britain.

The Stark brothers' father in law, Charles King, was a member of the First provincial Congress of South Carolina, and later became a Captain in the army. Both sons in law, Thomas Jr. and Jeremiah joined up, Thomas becoming a Captain and Jeremiah, a Lieutenant. Later, Jeremiah received a grant of land on Gilders Creek. As stated, neither Jeremiah nor his brother Thomas Jr. followed their father Thomas Stark to Tennessee. Thomas Jr.'s accidental death in 1805 is reported in "Annals of Newberry": After purchasing a pound of gunpowder in Newberry Village, then imbibing too much, he fell asleep in front of a fireplace at the Inn, a spark igniting the gun powder. Jeremiah lived out a good span, for those early times, after removing his large family to Abbeville District, the adjacent county to the west. There, he died May 18, 1824. The following were the children of Jeremiah Stark and Mary King: (1) Charles, b. Feb. 4, 1774; (2) James, b. Nov. 26, 1775; (3) Naomi, b. Feb. 4, 1778; (4) Phoebe, b. August 20, 1780; (5) Leah, b. April 20, 1783; (6) Charity; (7) Rachel, b. March 15, 1788; (8) Mary, b. Feb. 8, 1795; (9) Ruth, b. March 5, 1798; (10) Lydia. Jeremiah Stark left the following will:

In the name of God, Amen. I, Jeremiah Stark, of the State of South Carolina

and District of Abbeville, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, but weak

9. THOMAS GEARY8 STARK (JAMES7, JEREMIAH6, THOMAS5, JAMES4, JOHN III3, JOHN II2, JOHN I1) was born May 13, 1801 in South Carolina, and died February 1863 in Cole Co, Missouri. He married LEAH S VERNON August 24, 1823 in Cole, Missouri, daughter of NEHEMIAH VERNON and CHARITY STARK.

Notes for THOMAS GEARY STARK:

Thomas G. Stark and his wife raised their large family on Section 35, Township 44, Range 13, Cole County, Martha Stark, was the first to arrive on January 7, 1825, sixteen months after marriage; and thereafter came: Mary, Isaac, James, Nehemia, Charity, John Mulkey, Rebecca, Nancy, Ebenezer, and William Thomas.

Leah Vernon Stark, the mother of the eleven children, died in 1849 at the age of forty-one.

The 1850 census of Cole County shows the widower, Thomas Geary Stark, at age forty-nine with nine of the children still in the household, and with farm land valued at $2,000.00. The following year, November 9, 1851, he married Mary Stephens Amos, who presumably helped him raise the young children.

In 1845, a northwestern strip of Cole County was cut off to form a new County, called "Montineau," which would thereafter be between Cole and Cooper. The Thomas Geary Stark farm remained barely in Cole County, but near the new Montineau County line. There may have been some confusion, in that the will of Judge James Stark, father of Thomas Geary Stark, was filed in Montineau instead of Cole.

Thomas Geary Stark died in February, 1863. He left no will, and his estate was administered also in Montineau County. His son, Nehemiah Vernon Stark was Administrator, and the securities on his bondwere John M. Stark, 0. H. Gest and Hiram Gest. By that time, many of his eleven children had long since moved farther west.

RELATIVES OF THE LATE JEREMIAH VERNON WHO CAME TO MILLER

COUNTY 100 YEARS AGO............

The annual Vernon reunion of Vernon Families of Moniteau, Miller and

Laclede counties was held at Bennett Spring State Park Sunday, Aug. 10, 1930.

Over two hundred were present including friends who came from a distance

to enjoy the big dinner and a social day together. The change in the weather

the day an ideal one for the picnic and everybody was in the best of spirits

despite the discouraging outlook at home.

Uncle Billy Vernon, of Moniteau County, is now the oldest Vernon living. He

has four brothers, Harvey, John and Frank of Eldon, and George Vernon of Caney, Kansas. Their grandfather, Jeremiah Vernon, came from Tennessee in an ox wagon to Missouri a little more than one hundred years ago and settled in

the north part of Miller county near the present location of Olean. Part of

this county at that time was almost a wilderness. Mr. Vernon entered 200 acres of land, cleared it and made of it a nice farm. He built a fine house as it was

considered at that time. It was constructed of nicely hewn logs, neatly fitted

together and divided into three rooms each 18 and 20 feet square. The

chimneys were built of stone. Mr. Vernon, who was a mason, did the work

himself.

GOES ON GOLD RUSH

Mr. Vernon lived on his 200-acre farm enjoyed the fruits of his labor and

the pleasure of his family until 1850, the time of the great gold rush to the

state of California. He then joined in with several other men and they fitted

up a wagon train and started West for the gold fields. He never reached his

destiniation, but died on the way. His companions made a coffin from his

wagon bed and buried him on a little plateau at the foot of the Sierra Nevada

Mountains and there his body lies in an unmarked grave.

There are a number of the kindred of the Vernons scattered throughout

this part of the state. The family is one of the oldest in the State.

RELATIVES OF THE LATE JEREMIAH VERNON WHO CAME TO MILLER

COUNTY 100 YEARS AGO............

The annual Vernon reunion of Vernon Families of Moniteau, Miller and

Laclede counties was held at Bennett Spring State Park Sunday, Aug. 10, 1930.

Over two hundred were present including friends who came from a distance

to enjoy the big dinner and a social day together. The change in the weather

the day an ideal one for the picnic and everybody was in the best of spirits

despite the discouraging outlook at home.

Uncle Billy Vernon, of Moniteau County, is now the oldest Vernon living. He

has four brothers, Harvey, John and Frank of Eldon, and George Vernon of Caney, Kansas. Their grandfather, Jeremiah Vernon, came from Tennessee in an ox wagon to Missouri a little more than one hundred years ago and settled in

the north part of Miller county near the present location of Olean. Part of

this county at that time was almost a wilderness. Mr. Vernon entered 200 acres of land, cleared it and made of it a nice farm. He built a fine house as it was

considered at that time. It was constructed of nicely hewn logs, neatly fitted

together and divided into three rooms each 18 and 20 feet square. The

chimneys were built of stone. Mr. Vernon, who was a mason, did the work

himself.

GOES ON GOLD RUSH

Mr. Vernon lived on his 200-acre farm enjoyed the fruits of his labor and

the pleasure of his family until 1850, the time of the great gold rush to the

state of California. He then joined in with several other men and they fitted

up a wagon train and started West for the gold fields. He never reached his

destiniation, but died on the way. His companions made a coffin from his

wagon bed and buried him on a little plateau at the foot of the Sierra Nevada

Mountains and there his body lies in an unmarked grave.

There are a number of the kindred of the Vernons scattered throughout

this part of the state. The family is one of the oldest in the State.

16. LEAH S8 VERNON (CHARITY7 STARK, JEREMIAH6, THOMAS5, JAMES4, JOHN III3, JOHN II2, JOHN I1) was born October 17, 1809 in Robertson, Tennessee, and died September 16, 1849 in Cole Co., Missouri. She married THOMAS GEARY STARK August 24, 1823 in Cole, Missouri, son of JAMES STARK and REBECCA GEARY.

Notes for THOMAS GEARY STARK:

Thomas G. Stark and his wife raised their large family on Section 35, Township 44, Range 13, Cole County, Martha Stark, was the first to arrive on January 7, 1825, sixteen months after marriage; and thereafter came: Mary, Isaac, James, Nehemia, Charity, John Mulkey, Rebecca, Nancy, Ebenezer, and William Thomas.

Leah Vernon Stark, the mother of the eleven children, died in 1849 at the age of forty-one.

The 1850 census of Cole County shows the widower, Thomas Geary Stark, at age forty-nine with nine of the children still in the household, and with farm land valued at $2,000.00. The following year, November 9, 1851, he married Mary Stephens Amos, who presumably helped him raise the young children.

In 1845, a northwestern strip of Cole County was cut off to form a new County, called "Montineau," which would thereafter be between Cole and Cooper. The Thomas Geary Stark farm remained barely in Cole County, but near the new Montineau County line. There may have been some confusion, in that the will of Judge James Stark, father of Thomas Geary Stark, was filed in Montineau instead of Cole.

Thomas Geary Stark died in February, 1863. He left no will, and his estate was administered also in Montineau County. His son, Nehemiah Vernon Stark was Administrator, and the securities on his bondwere John M. Stark, 0. H. Gest and Hiram Gest. By that time, many of his eleven children had long since moved farther west.

Notes for MARTHA ADALINE VERNON:

[jhv.ged]

Taken from: The Journal of James Harvey Vernon

My sister, Adaline, died in 1882. She had married a fellow by the name of Evans. A sort of gangster, he had a gang down on the Saline Creek. He was in the Jesse James outlaws too. Jesse James hid out there for a while too. Evans kept trying to see Adaline and one day he and Bob Letteral rode up and took her on a horse and ran as fast as they could, were away before mother or the folks realized, but Isaac and I got on horses and rode after them. We sighted the gang and they fired several shots at us. Adaline was only 17 years and was a pretty girl. Father went to the Justice of the Peace and told him if they came there for him to marry them and say he gave his consent. He didn't want her to marry him but thought under the circumstances it would be best. They did go there and were married. He took her with the gang down in the southern part of the state and into Kansas. We heard from her through a neighbor. She was then at Fort Scott, Kansas. She told her neighbor to write to father to come after her. Father went. It was a long journey for him but he found her, she had a baby about a year old. It was sick and so was she. She slipped away without letting Evans know she was leaving. He had beat the baby. It died not long after Father got them home. Adaline died shortly after, when she was only about 26 years old.

Notes for JAMES HARVEY VERNON:

[jhv.ged]

This is a copy of the obituary that appeared in the local paper.

JAMES HARVEY VERNON DIED FRIDAY-

James Harvey Vernon was born June 13, 1853, and departed this life May 2, 1941. If he had lived one month and eight days longer he would have been 88 years old.

His parents Wilburn and Sarah Vernon, were among the early settlers of this county.

Mr. Vernon's entire life was spent in Miller county.

The last 56 years he had lived on the same farm. The old homestead where he reared one of the largest families in the county has been made dear to the entire countryside by his gracious hospitality and his friendly greetings to all, and especially dear to his children, his grandchildren, his great grandchildren and his great-great grandchildren.

He was married in 1871 to Sarah D. Jones who preceded him in death Dec. 10, 1881.

On June 14, 1885, he was married to Racheal Salina Cox who preceded him in death on April 20, 1932.

Since her death, he had remained at his old home except for a few months visit with some of his children in the state of California.

At an early age, Mr. Vernon was converted and united with Aurora Springs Baptist Church. He lived a long and beautiful christian life. His influence in the church where he held an office as deacon and his influence in the community has meant much for the building of the Kingdom of God.

Mr. Vernon was loved by everybody. There never was a family in need of a neighbor or a friend that he wasn't ready and willing to help.

In his declining years, he did not lose interest in the welfare of his country. His radio and his good eyesight, enabled him to read, helped him to keep up with all the latest events of the world.

At the time of his death, ten of the children were at his bedside and the other four arrived later, Cecil and Gertie coming from California, Amy from Colorado, and Eliza from Arkansas.

Besides his fourteen children, he leaves 55 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren most of whom are here.

He also leaves one sister, Mrs Elizabeth Merriott, of Latham Mo. and one brother, Frank Vernon of Eldon. Both were able to attend the funeral.

That he was loved by all was made manifest by the large crowd of 348 people who rushed to his bedside, all anxious to be of service to him and the family.

Like the Apostle Paul, it can be truly said of him that he fought a good fight, he has finished the course, he has kept the faith and there is laid up for him a crown of righteousness.

Perhaps the largest funeral ever held in that community was at the Aurora Springs Baptist Church. About 40 of his grand-children and great-grandchildren carried the flowers and his six sons were pallbearers. Rev. N.E. Williams made a very consoling talk on the 23rd Psalm. The Aurora Springs Baptist Church Chior, assisted by Will Enloe and Floyd Loving, sang "The Pearly White City", "It Won't Be Long, It May Be Soon" and "Where We'll Never Grow Old."

Burial was at the Allen cemetery with the Kays funeral home of Eldon in charge.

The bride was made welcome by her five new stepchildren; Eliza 12, Fannie 11, Allen 9, Lou 7, and Walter 5. It was a happy time for all.

Children of JAMES VERNON and SARAH JONES are:

i. ELIZA ANN11 VERNON, b. November 12, 1872, Miller, Missouri; d. March 22, 1950, Hazen, Arkansas; m. EDGAR LEVI CUNNINGHAM, June 18, 1891, Aurora Springs.

Notes for EDGAR LEVI CUNNINGHAM:

[jhv.ged]

It was said that Mary Cunningham, Levi's Stepmother would not raise him because he was part Indian. He was said to have been raised by relatives. His natural mother died when he was 3 months old.

After his marriage to Eliza Vernon he set up house keeping in a small house on his father-in-law's (James Harvey Vernon) land. He made their living by farming and running a sawmill with his father-in-law.

It was a hard life and he needed a better way to provide for his family so he and his family, he had two children at the time ( Elmer and Chlora ) loaded up in a wagon and went into the sparcely settled Oklahoma Territory. They could not find land to settle and their third child, Albert was born on the trail in a covered wagon. Leon Cross, Eliza's and Levi's grandson remembers a story Eliza told him about living in this covered wagon. After reaching the Oklahoma territory the Cunningham family set up camp along a body of water of some sort next to an Indian reservation. She said while they were there Cowboys or Cow herders bringing in cows to the reservation used this water for their herds. Eliza said it scared her to death. The cows upon smelling water would stampede with no care of what was in front of them. Their wagon was right in the path. The cattlemen would surround their wagon and pop their whips to keep the cattle at bay. On the trail the children did not have many toys so Eliza tied a rope to a dishpan and gave it to her son, Elmer to play with. He loved it! It was his favorite toy. She had him occupied with his toy one day and had gone to check on one of the other children when she heard the cattle coming. The first thing she did was round up her children or at least try to roundup her children. Elmer was no where around. She was terrified! As usual the cattle made their run for the water while Eliza sat in the wagon not knowing what had become of her child and crying. Immediately after the cattle had passed she jumped from the wagon searching for Elmer. She could not see him anywhere so she put her ear to the ground hoping to hear him. She listened and off in the distant,sure enough she could hear the dishpan clattering on the ground. She was one happy lady.

They then returned to Miller Co., MO and family.

Shortly after regrouping, they went back into the Oklahoma territory but again after not finding anything they liked they went in a southern direction, down into Arkansas. The family traveled in a covered wagon all the way and on this journey they were accompanied by Levi's, half brother, James "Jim". In those days it was common for travelers to stop at any cabin or settlement for food and to restore their water supply. Eliza tells a story of stopping at a cabin and Levi and Jim find a man naked and passed out from liquior a gun in each hand. They decided that a hasty retreat was in order. They tiptoed back to the wagon so as not to distrub this sleeping "danger". They mounted their wagon and made preperations to leave. Everyone was terrified! Eliza and the children especially. As they were pulling away Jim Cunningham decided to have a little fun, he gave a great big "Haw" to the horses and slapped them on the back to put them in full run. The noise he made was enough to wake the dead. It could even wake a- drunk man! It was a fun scarry moment for them all but it showed the dangers these people and people like them faced.

They settled on land in Hazen , Arkansas and started farming. They remained in Hazen until their remaining children were born.

They then went south again. This time they traveled into Texas. A lot of people from Miller County ended up in Texas especially around the Red River and Lamar County areas. Levy and his family stayed here for the next 14 years. He again was making his living farming.

The small farmer has always had a hard time making a living. They have always depended on the hometown banks to carry them through. Some of the bankers handled the farmers in a sensitive fashion and some did not. Levi's daughter, Minnie Cunningham tells of a time in Deport, Texas when Levi was arrested. He went into the bank to get a loan. It was hard for him. He had a lot of pride and was not used to borrowing money. I do not know if he got his loan or not, I believe not, but the bank officer made this remark, "If it wasn't for farmers this bank would have some money" . This totally upset Levi, you need to remember he was from that homesteading stock from Miller Co., Missouri, people that cut out livelihoods from the wilderness. These farmers and their wives fought animals, indians, and vegatation clearing our country. This pampered banker and two of his cohorts had all felt Levi's wrath before it was over. Levi was taken to jail and brought up before the court. He was then released.

The Cunningham's returned to Arkansas. Back in Hazen Levi became a sheriff. His daughter Minnie remembers he would saddle his horse and go out and take care of his sheriffing business, sometimes working late into the night. Eliza would worry, especially on those occasions he rode to arrest someone, until he returned safely home.

At the end of their lives, Levi and Eliza lived part of the time with their daughter, Minnie Cross and part of the time with Bertha Larkan. Levi died from diabetes.

Notes for WILLIAM JEREMIAH VERNON:

[jhv.ged]

From James Harvey Vernon's Journal:

My brother, Billy, married Ann Hansucker and lived north of Olean. After Ann died he married Dosia and lived up northwest of High Point near Burris Forks for many years. He lived near OLean before that time. His first wife died when his son, Forrest, was small. He later married Dosia Jordan. She was a school teacher and taught a lot after they married. Dosia died while they they still lived near Burris Forks. Later Billy and Forrest and his family sold that place and bought a home east of Olean. They didn't live there long, went back near their home and bought another farm. Brother Billy then built him a little house on Brother John's farm and lived there alone. Forrest and Annie would try to get him to go and stay with them but he wanted to be at Eldon so he could be near his brothers. He fell and broke his hip. Forrest came and got him but he died, not very long after his fall, at Forrest's home.
