Descendants of Thomas Pope and Hannah Austin

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

        1.  Thomas4 Pope  (Thomas3, Thomas2, John1) was born Bef. 1726, and died 12 Nov 1806 in Henniker, Hillsborough (Merrimack), New Hampshire.  He married Hannah Austin 14 Oct 1742 in Methuen, Essex, Massachusetts1,2, daughter of Thomas Austin and Sarah Lovejoy.  She was born 08 Apr 1722 in Methuen, Essex, Massachusetts, and died 07 May 1806 in Henniker, Hillsborough (Merrimack), New Hampshire.

 

Notes for Thomas Pope:

This family and descendants are the so-called "New Hampshire branch" of the Pope's of Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony. As such this Thomas is the son of Thomas Pope and Margaret Downing.

 

There is still some controversy regarding the true identity of the English immigrant John Pope, but the story of this great-grandson Thomas (4th generation) has been reasonably described from the scant available records discussed in the unpublished genealogy by Francis Lane Childs. Having left the Plaistow/Methuen area sometime after 1750 [the drawing of the Massachusetts and New Hampshire boundary in 1741 had put him on the New Hampshire side], Thomas must have decided to take his family into the "wilderness" in the Connecticut and Merrimack River valleys, eventually (around 1765) settling on a spot of land just south of Town No.6 (a.k.a. Henniker). Prior to this he had been briefly in Goffstown and Starkstown (now Dunbarton).

 

The oldest daughter Hannah may have been the Hannah married to Sylvanus Emery, but I am still trying to lock that one down.

 

There are no Pope's buried in the regular listing of Henniker cemeteries, so I think I will need to locate the old Pope homestead if I want to try to locate burial markers, ... IF any still exist.

Notes for Simeon Pope:

 

The story of Simeon and Judith is fortunate to have details recorded in the unpublished genealogy (at Henniker, New Hampshire) by Francis Lane Childs and also in the many affidavits that accompanied Simeon's Revolutionary War pension file. An affidavit (10 February 1847) by his daughter Tirzah Willey states (in part) -

          " ... that I am the daughter of Simeon and Judith Pope and that my father Simeon Pope was a pensioner of the United States at the rate of ninety six dollars per annum, that they were both living with me at the time of their decease - that my father died on the 29th day of Feb. 1848 and my mother died on the 17th of August 1848. I also further state that I have caused thorough search to be made and that record or documentary proof of their marriage cannot be found. I also further say that in the year 1816 my father, who was then living in Morgan in the State of Vermont, in a state of partial insanity, left the family and went to parts unknown. From the time he left, his family heard nothing nor had any knowledge of him until 1824 and after he had obtained his Pension Certificate. He then returned to his family and continued to live with them until his death. On my fathers return he stated that he had had no knowledge of his family during his absence and knew not whether they were living or not. ...".

 

A statement (6 April 1848) by Susannah (Adams) Blood relates her recollection of her sister Judith's marriage (in part) -

          " ... I well recollect that I saw my sister, Judith Adams and Simeon Pope, dressed for their wedding at my fathers House, and that they left there to go to the Rev. Peletiah Chapins house to be married, but I do not recollect whether I did or did not accompany them. This event took place I think in the month of September, but I do not remember the year, but I remember it was a short time before the close of the Revolutionary war. ... ".

 

As to his war service there are affidavits of Nathan Lee and William Ferguson of Sandwich, Strafford county, New Hampshire (both July 1824), that state that Simeon served " in the company commanded by Captain William Rowell in the second New Hampshire Regiment commanded by Col. George Reed one year, commencing some time in June in the year 1779 and ending some time in June or July following being in the year 1780 and well knew him during said term while in said service, while the army lay at Danbury, Connecticutt. Also while it lay at West Point New York ...".

        41.  Ralph7 Pope (Thomas6, David5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, John1) was born 14 May 1802 in Washington, Orange, Vermont147,148,149,150, and died 12 Apr 1874 in Beaver, Winona, Minnesota151,152.  He married Mary Richardson 29 Dec 1830 in Orange, Orange, Vermont, daughter of Nathaniel Richardson and Hannah Martin.  She was born 06 Dec 1805 in Orange, Orange, Vermont153, and died 03 Mar 1873 in Beaver, Winona, Minnesota154,155.

 

Notes for Ralph Pope:

I'm not certain exactly when Ralph and Polly Pope moved their family from Vermont to Minnesota, but it seems that it might have been prior to June 1858, since that is when their oldest daughter Sarah married in Plainview. However, Ralph Pope is still listed as a Washington, Vermont resident in a quit claim document dated 23 November 1860, wherein he surrendered his title to one and a half pews in the Universalist Church in Washington to one B. W. Bartholomew. Then, there is the deed (warrantee) of January 1857 where Ralph and Mary Pope sold to Quincy O. Calef the family homestead, (lot no. 14 in the tenth range), cook stove included, but not the 'blacksmith tools' or a 'large particular block of granite'. So I guess I still don't know when they got in the wagon and left. Possibly the older children went on ahead.

        124             i.    Ira B.8 Pope, born 21 Sep 1831 in Washington, Orange, Vermont156,157,158,159; died 08 Jan 1880 in Oshkosh, Winnebago, Wisconsin160.  He married (1) Marietta Nettleton 01 May 1862 in Pine Valley Twp., Clark, Wisconsin; born abt. 1835 in Ohio; died 24 Dec 1895 in Charlevoix, Charlevoix, Michigan.  He married (2) Georgiana Hull 02 Dec 1877 in Pine Valley Twp., Clark, Wisconsin; born abt. 1851 in Wisconsin; died abt. Jun 1889.

 

Notes for Ira B. Pope:

The story of Ira B. Pope is rather sad and still mysterious to me. Ira married first to Marietta (Maryetta ?) Nettleton, the daughter of David and Alma (maiden name unknown) Nettleton in 1862, and then she was divorced from Ira on 19 April 1877. In later years Marietta N. Pope resided in Charlevoix County, Michigan, where she lived near her younger brother David C. Nettleton (a well-known civil engineer) and was a highly regarded teacher in her own right. In 1876 Ira, who had been Clark County Clerk, was arrested for embezzlement. Then in 1877 he married Georgiana Hull, daughter of (the late) George and Mary S. Hull. In 1879 Ira was pronounced "insane" and taken to the asylum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin where he later died. The newspapers of Neillsville in Clark County carry some interesting coverage of Ira's legal and financial troubles, but do not give the sense that he was undesirable or an outcast, but more that folks simply did not understand his erratic behavior. This being the 19th century, the nature of his "insane" condition is only described in the most vague terms, although a couple of articles also mention that he had a "physical deformity that marked him for ridicule", without going into further detail. I wonder if there may have been some relationship between his deformity and his mental health condition, but at present I can't even guess as to what it might be.

Patient No. 1330 -

In April 2001, I received a copy of Ira Pope's medical record from the State of Wisconsin. He was admitted on 15 Sep 1879. Brought to Oshkosh by Sheriff James Houston, he had the following description - "Certificate states that this attack began 6 mos ago that this is the first - Began by being emotional in his conversation - then became despondent - said that he was a defaulter and could get no employment The disease is increasing - he talks nothing that is sensible now - Has had no persistent delusion ... In office is quiet and restless - wants to wander about - Is in good flesh and seems in fair health". Further dated notes are "Nov. 5. 79. Has been restless since his admission and very feeble minded. Looks and acts as though he had been insane for many years. Has been taking food very sparingly for several days past and today refused it altogether. Was fed by oesophageal tube this pm.     Dec 14. 79. Has taken food in small but sufficient quantity since last note. Is filthy day and night. Was transferred to Ward 5-6.     Jan 3. 80. Has been noisy restless & disturbed since last note. Takes food in small quantity. Yesterday and today has had a severe diarrhea.     Jan 8. 80. Diarrhea has continued almost uninterruptedly since last note, and patient has gradually failed. Yesterday refused food altogether and died at 8 am."

Notes for Marietta Nettleton:

 

"An East Jordan, Mich. paper chronicles the death of Mrs. Marietta Pope, on Tuesday, December 24. She taught school here many years ago, and it was here that she was married to Ira B. Pope. The East Jordan paper alludes to her as one of the most prominent educators of that section, and says that she had charge of the primary department of the public schools there for several years; that the Friday before Christm's she closed the fall term with a Christmas celebration, and declaring that she never felt better at the close of a term. On Monday she went to Charlevoix, Mich., to spend the holiday vacation at the home of a brother, and there died the next day, of heart failure. Her maiden name was Nettleton, and she was a sister of Cyrus Nettleton, of Humbird."

Notes for Lusina Pope:

 

 

In late 1999 I received (from the State Library of Pennsylvania), a microfiche copy of "The History of the Dorchester Pope Family", by Charles Henry Pope. This edition contained an addendum, dated May, 1892, that outlined details of the "New Hampshire Branch" of the Dorchester Pope's.

 

Under the listing for the children of Thomas Pope and Sally Jones of Washington, Vermont, was " ...; Lucinda m. B. K. Freeman;". From the listing of Thomas and Sally's children in the Washington, Vermont town records, this daughter was listed as "Lusina". Well, I searched and searched in the census and other Washington and Orange town records, but could find no further mention of any "Freeman" with a wife named Lusina or Lucinda or anything else close to it. Over the next decade I was able to fill in a great number of the details for what happened to Lusina's siblings and many of their descendents, but Lusina remained a mystery.

 

On 28 August 1999, I had left a message posting titled "POPE in Orange Co., VT" on the Ancestry.com Pope surname message board. It contained only the following basic information -

"researching ancestors and descendents of Thomas POPE, born about 1776, moved to Orange Co. VT before 1797, died Washington, Orange Co. VT on 25 March 1851. Son Ralph POPE born 14 May 1802, and his son William Henry Hansen POPE, born Washington, Orange Co. VT on 18 March 1841, died Mora, Kanabec Co. MN on 31 August 1925

 

On 30 November 2010, I received the follwing reply to my 1999 posting -

"Do you happen to show a descendant named Lucina Pope? My g-g-grandmother was born in Orange, VT in 1842 father Bradford Freeman and mother Lucina Pope. I have no other information on Lucina Pope.

Thanks."

 

Intrigued, I replied to the query and supplied what little I knew about Lusina, daughter of Thomas and Sally Pope. After some more correspondence, I am starting to have confidence that the information provided by this descendant, on the families of "Lucina" Pope Freeman's two children, Charity and Alden Freeman, is probably correct to assign to my Lusina Pope, daughter of Thomas and Sally Pope. I am presently (January 2011) researching film of Barre town records to attempt to find some data on Lusina and either of her two husbands. I also plan to write to the Barre town clerk to see if there may be some records available in their local archives.

Notes for John S. Hall:

The Vermont Vital Index card for the death of John S. Hall states that he was from Rumney, New Hampshire. I've had a look at the corresponding New Hampshire Vital Index card microfilm for Hall's in New Hampshire - there are some Hall's in Rumney, but there was no specific card for John's birth. According to the Vermont Index, John's parents were named Edward and Betsy. The 1840 census for Washington, Vermont does have a listing for an Edward Hall having a wife and four children 10 and under, two sons and two daughters.

Notes for Hattie M. Burnham:

I had thought that the Hattie M. that Frank Hall married was the Hattie M. Cutler who shows up widowed in the 1900 census in East Montpelier, but the index record corrects this. Hattie married the year following Frank's death to Walter E. Granger, a furniture salesman, and they both appear in the 1920 and 1930 census as residents of South Pasadena, Los Angeles, California. It is not obvious if Frank Hall and Hattie Burnham had any children.

"'Death of L. H. Hamblett'

Lester H. Hamblett died of bronchial trouble complicated with heart disease, at his residence, 72 Laurel street, at 5 a. m. today, after an illness of more than four years. He made a brave contest for life and visited California, Florida and South Carolina in quest of health. Mr. and Mrs. Hamblett reached home on Thursday, April 29, from Summerville, S. C. where they had been since last October.

Mr. Hamblett was born at Westford, April 24, 1852, and was an only child of Theodore and Hannah (Jewett) Hamblett, both of whom survive, the father being 86 and the mother 80 years of age, and both are in good health.

Mr. Hamblett was educated at Westford academy, and at Colby institute at New London, N. H. In 1877 he purchased a grocery store at Dover, N. H., where he was in business two years, and then came to this city where he has since resided. He worked as a painter for S. P. Durant and afterwards was foreman for William M. Demmon, with whom he continued until Mr. Demmon's death, when he bought the business and conducted it successfully till 1902, when, owing to failing health he sold it to F. I. Cate. He had some of the best work in the city.

Mr. Hamblett was a member of Nashua Tribe, Improved Order of Redmen, and had been through the chairs. He also belonged to the Fitchburg Merchants' association and the Columbia club.

Mr. Hamblett married at Ayer, Oct. 12, 1878, Miss Nellie Florence Pope, who survives. He was very closely attached to his friends and had the confidence of all who had business or social relations with him."

Notes for William Frederick Pope:

"'Promising Sculptor

William Frederick Pope Had Done Much Fine Work'

The Boston Globe, today, has this to say of William Frederick Pope, son of Mrs. Mary F. Pope, 72 Laurel street:

"William Frederick Pope, one of the most promising among the younger sculptors of this country, died on Sunday, in the Massachusetts Homeopathic hospital of pneumonia, at the age of 41.      Mr. Pope has been back in America only since spring, and was working on a portrait relief of Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy. He went to New York last week, on business in relation to this portrait, and there contracted influenza which developed into pneumonia. Upon his return he went into the hospital at once, and was there nearly a week before death came.      Mr. Pope was born in Shirley in 1865, and as a young man was employed in the office of the Manufacturers' Mutual Insurance company in Boston. He had a great love for art, however, and developed considerable talent. He studied with H. H. Kitson, the sculptor, and finally left business to go to Paris and continue his study in the atelier of Julian. He made rapid progress there, winning the Grand Prix de Rome in the Ecole des Beaux Arts. One of his early works, a bronze "Breton Fisherman Drawing His Nets," received a great deal of comment and won honorable mention in the Paris salon. He first came back to America two years ago and did a portrait bust of Edward Atkinson, also taking part in the competition for a design for a memorial to Patrick A. Collins.      Mr. Pope had a studio at 2 Boylston place which was filled with sculpture of his own carving. The first piece he ever showed at a salon, the head of a Breton peasant, is there; his first "concours" - the head of an Arab sheik, which remained always one of his own favorites - was also on view, and the "Hauling in the Nets," too large for the studio, is still in its packing case in a storage warehouse."

 - Fitchburg (Massachusetts) Daily Sentinel, Tuesday, 23 October 1906, p. 2

 

"The funeral of William Frederick Pope was at the residence of his sister, Mrs. L. H. Hamblett, 72 Laurel street, at 11.15 a. m. today, and the services were private. Rev. E. B. Saunders officiated. The pall bearers were friends of the deceased from Boston. The remains were taken to Shirley on the 1.29 p. m. train, today, for interment."

        65.  Micah D.7 Pope (Samson6, Simeon5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, John1) was born 06 Sep 1809 in Kirby, Caledonia, Vermont231, and died 10 Mar 1886 in Bengal Twp., Clinton, Michigan231.  He married Sophronia [-?-] Pope abt. 1840.  She was born abt. 1824 in Vermont, and died 20 Jan 1889231.

 

Notes for Micah D. Pope:

Micah Pope, as I finally discovered for myself in February 2004, settled with his family in Bengal Twp, Clinton Co., Michigan. Prior to finding him in an 1870 census in Michigan, with his son Frank as head of household, I'd lost track of this family after the 1860 census. This connection was well known to Micah's descendants in Clinton Co., and there are copious records of these families at the Clinton County Historical Society.

 

The 1873 plat map of Bengal Twp. shows "C. Pope" (Cyrus) with 80 acres in the west ½ of the southwest ¼ of Section 17. In the 1896 plat map he has an additional

 

 

"Micah D. Pope died in Clinton county, March 10, 1886, at the age of seventy-seven. He was born in Vermont and brought up in New York State. In an early day he worked in Rochester in the foundry of Jethro Wood, the first maker of iron plows. He moved to Ohio, and from there at the close of the war to Michigan. He was of a genial and social nature, always looking on the bright side of life."

        81.  Luther7 Wilcox (Clarissa6 Pope, Simeon5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, John1) was born 11 Jan 1818 in Canada249, and died 11 Dec 1885 in Etna, Fillmore, Minnesota.  He married (1) Seraph Glidden abt. 1840.  She was born abt. 1820, and died Bef. 1880.  He married (2) Mary Ann Rix abt. 16 Jun 1846.  She was born abt. 1818 in Canada, and died Aft. 1880.

 

Notes for Luther Wilcox:

In the 1860 census listing Luther is enumerated as 36 year-old "Wm Wilcox", with wife Mary and sons Donn and Justin.

 

A small tidbit from the 1882 "History of Fillmore County" (Minnesota), p. 603 -

"Luther Wilcox was born in Canada in 1818, and reared as a farmer. He was married in 1840, to Miss Sarah Glidden. She died in 1842, leaving two children. He was married again on the 16th of June, 1846, to Miss Mary Ann Ricks, who has borne him five children. In 1855, he came to Bloomfield, Minnesota, where he has since been a farmer. Mr. Wilcox has been Justice of the Peace twelve years."

 

His obituary -

"Luther Wilcox, an old an universally respected resident of Etna, Fillmore County, Minnesota, died at his residence December 11, 1885. We made his acquaintance in 1886 since when he was a continuous subscriber to the National Republican, and a firm supporter of Lincoln Republicanism. He had intelligent and decided views on "government by the people for the people," and believed in and supported the declaration of Abraham Lincoln that the greenback currency was the best money for the people ever by the American government. His death is a great loss to the community in which he so long resided. It has removed from active influence a noble patriot who could not be coerced into acquiessence in unjust and corupt political action. He believed in God and loved mankind. His home was the abode of peace. Christian hospitality was one of its chief attractions. Luther Wilcox deceased was an honorable representative farmer of Fillmore county to which his death is a greater loss than was the demise of General Grant. Luther Wilcox was a wealth producer while Grant was merely a wealth consumer, one of the least valuable of the American population."

 - National Republican (Preston, Minnesota), Thursday, 7 January, 1886

 

The 1878 plat map for Bloomfield Twp. show that there were 160 acres for J. E. and J. R. Wilcox in section 35 and 40 acres each for D. Wilcox and L.

"'Don Wilcox Obituary'

Don Wilcox, an early resident of this county, died at his late farm home, near Morton in Renville county, last Thursday, where he has resided for the past thirty years. The deceased was quite well known here, by the earlier residents. He had been in poor health for some time and he had been at a hospital in the Twin Cities in hopes of being benefitted, but to no avail, and he returned to his home near Morton. His brother, Eugene Wilcox of this city has been with him for several weeks at his home there; also another brother, Jesse Wilcox of Montevideo, who has been at Morton during his brother's last illness. Mrs. Wilcox, the wife of the deceased, and Mr. Eugene Wilcox arrived here Saturday with the remains. Funeral services were held at Morton by the I. O. O. F. and the local lodge officiated at the services on Sunday at Etna, where the remains were laid to rest. The deceased was about 64 years of age."

        115.  Oramel8 Pope (John7, Thomas6, David5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, John1) was born abt. 1830 in Henniker, Merrimack, New Hampshire293, and died 24 Sep 1903 in Chicago, Cook, Illinois.  He married Amanda Angell294 1852 in New Boston, Hillsboro, New Hampshire294, daughter of Lorenzo Angell and Charlotte Angell.  She was born 06 Oct 1835 in New Hampshire295, and died 07 Mar 1924 in Downers Grove, Du Page, Illinois.

 

Notes for Oramel Pope:

The parentage of Oramel Pope is taken from the unpublished notes of Francis Lane Childs on biography of Henniker residents (copy from the Henniker Historical Society, sent to me by Elizabeth Pope). Under notes for the Plumer family is the following -

"vii. Roxanna (called Roxy), b. in Dec. 1801; m. Samuel Rollins (see ROLLINS). She was a somewhat simpleminded and slovenly creature, entirely uninhibited in speech and action. The older generation had many amusing anecdotes about Roxy, but unfortunately most of them are not printable. Besides her children by Rollins, she had four who were born out of wedlock, of whom she was not at all ashamed. The youngest were twins, who did not look at all alike, and Roxy always insisted that they had separate fathers!

Children (illegitimate) b. in H.:

1. Maria Tucker, b. in 1823; m. John Gove (see GOVE). Her father is said to have been 'one of the Tucker boys from across the river,' and she always went by the name of Tucker. She lived with her mother's family until her marriage.

2. Oramel, b. in 1829. His father was Edward Smith. He was adopted when an infant by John and Lucy Pope, and given their name (see POPE).

3. Horace M., b. 20 May 1832 (twin).

4. Wallace M., b. 20 May 1832 (twin). These boys were brought up by John Dow of Bradford, who adopted Horace. Both went by the name of Dow. (see DOW)"

 

I think this was probably pretty racy stuff for early 19th century New Hampshire.

Notes for Seymour John Noyes:

I found the following notice in a newspaper while searching for Seymour Noyes on Ancestry's newspaper archive in April 2006 -

"'Portsmouth Man Drowns As Boat Tips In River'

Firemen today at noon still were grappling for the body of Verdino Fred Sablone, of 68 Russell street, Portsmouth, who was one of two bridge workers drowned in the Merrimack river, Goffs Falls, shortly after noon yesterday.

The body of Seymour J. Noyes, the other victim, who was 64 years old and of Etna, was recovered by firemen less than three hours after the accident.

Noyes and Sablone were reported to have been attempting to cross the swift-running river with two other workmen when the boat in which they were seated struck a rope that was strung across the river, tossing the occupants into the water. Neither Noyes or Sablone were able to swim, companions who escaped, explained.

They were both employed by a construction company that is erecting a temporary bridge across the Merrimack river. Mr. Noyes was a carpenter and Mr. Sablone, a crane operator.

Sablone was born in Brazil. He would have celebrated his 37th birthday the 23rd of this month. He leaves his wife, Mrs. Iolanda Sablone of Portsmouth. Several years ago he had been employed by the John Iofolla Construction company of Portsmouth."

Notes for Carlos Caldwell Pope:

An extensive bio of Carl Pope was published in the 13 September 1906 (semi-centennial anniversary souvenir) edition of the Black River Falls' paper, the Badger State Banner -

 

"'Hon. Carl C. Pope'

Within the limits of the space given to the individual and industrial write-ups in this edition there is scarcely alloted room to do justice to the subject of this sketch, being one of the eminent attorneys of the state and a man of exceptional literary attainments.

Carl C. Pope was born at Washington, Vt., July 22nd, 1834, and was educated at the Green Mountain Liberal Institute at South Woodstock, Vt. He was admitted to the bar at Chelsea, Vt., in January, 1856, shortly after attaining his majority. He then started west, expecting to enter a law office at St. Charles, Ill., in partnership with a cousin of his father, but finding no such opportunity open he concluded to continue to follow the "westward, ho!" movement and headed for Iowa. On the way he thought of some friends at La Crosse, among them A. W. Barron, something of a business plunger and at one time owner of Barron's Island, and changed his course and landed in that village. He there found himself strapped and worked about six weeks in the office of the clerk of the county board. Then learning that Johnson & Price wanted an assistant in their law office, at Black River Falls, he came here and entered that office. This was in March, 1856. After three or four months he concluded to open an office on his own account. Thus he became a factor in the destiny of the place, and has been in that factorship ever since, except during nearly nine years in Superior in the nineties.

He is a man of regular habits, systematic in his work, extremely studious, quick of discernment and is possessed of a very retentive memory. With these qualities he made himself one of the best posted men, not only in the law, but also upon many other topics in this region. In his fifty years of practice in the legal profession he has handled many intricate cases in the higher as well as the lower courts, and enjoys a state-wide reputation among the members of the bar. He is a powerful thinker and has been the originator of many theories in jurisprudence that have attracted interested attention among the wise ones. He has also found time to give his literary talents play by writing much for the press. In fact he has, right here, cultivated his rare native ability and acquired the qualifications that would have graced the supreme bench, the state executive chair of the U. S. senate. His talents have received public recognition in various ways. He was district attorney from 1858 to 1862, county judge nearly a term, member of the assembly in 1862 and 1863, and again in 1877 and 1878, state senator in 1864 and 1865, and was a delegate to the Republican national convention at Baltimore in 1864. In 1865 he was chairman of the judiciary committee of the state senate and also chairman of the same committee of the assembly in 1877. He has been a member of the state bar association since 1877, and read a paper before that association in 1898 on "Equity in Criminal Cases," which brought him much applause and provoked much discussion among the attorneys on account of its power of thought and ingenious conclusions.

Mr. Pope is a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, and of the State Historical Society, has been a member of the celebrated Cobden Club for over twenty years, been a Mason for nearly half a century, serving as Worshipful Master several times, and was the first High Priest of the Chapter and was made a member of the Fort Winnebago commandery, Knights Templar, in 1867. He was court commissioner for fifteen years, is a U. S. patent attorney, and was U. S. draft commissioner for Jackson county during the war.

As a lawyer Mr. Pope is recognized in the profession as one possessed of exceptional constructive ability and as one who boils things down and uses no unnecessary language, though he never wants for words. His legal papers are always brief, but forceful and to the point, with as much legal verbiage as possible and repetitions for the mere sake of added volume omitted. This is a characteristic that courts mostly like in lawyers.

The Colonel is still actively engaged in practice, and has a nice little brick office, excellently located and as neatly and conveniently-arranged a suite of rooms as is often seen in the country."

 

Only a few years after this article, his obituary was published in the Banner -

 

"'C. C. Pope Dies of Pneumonia

Passing of One of Ablest and Most Distinguished Citizens

No Vitality To Recuperate

Burial Rites Under Strict Masonic Auspices, Attended Also by Many Old Settler Associates'

Col. Carl C. Pope had not the vitality to recuperate from the attack of pneumonia, as chronicled in the last issue of the Banner, and passed quietly away last Thursday evening, between eight and nine o'clock, aged 78 years, 7 months and 1 day. Thus occured the passing beyond of one of our earliest settlers and ablest and most distinguished citizens.       The funeral services were held at the home, in the first ward, at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon under the auspices of Black River Lodge No. 74, A. F. and A. M. It was strictly a Masonic service, conducted by J. J. McGillivray as acting Worthy Master, and there was no minister and no sermon.

There was a very large attendance of Masons, old settler associates and other sorrowing friends.

The only relatives from abroad in attendance were Mrs. R. C. Pope of Superior, a daughter-in-law; E. A. Le Clair also of Superior, a former son-in-law; and Warren Moore of Rochester, Minn., a nephew. Hugh LeClair, the only surviving lineal descendant, is in the U. S. naval service, cruising with a fleet off the cost of Cuba, as an officer on the battle-ship Georgia, and could not even be notified of the death of his grand father so that the notice would reach him under a month. Henry and J. C. Pope of Mora, Minn., the only surviving brothers, were unable to come on account of sickness. Another brother, James, died in Missouri, only about two weeks before.

Among the old settlers from abroad in attendance were Frank M. Immell and Herbert Duxbury of Blair and B. Berg of Kendall. Attorneys Henry S. Butler and S. L. Perin of Superior, both former law partners of the deceased at the northwesternmost city of the state, the former being of the once successful firm of Otlin (sp?) & Butler & Carl C. Pope, and the latter of the firm of Pope & Perin, came down to pay tribute to their former associate in business. Among other attorneys in attendance were M. C. Ring and R. F. Fauntz of Neillsville. Judge O'Neill, S. C. Stockwell, W. J. Marsh, Robert Weeks and H. W. Klopf of the same city were also here. Miss Florence Wicklin of Chicago, a close family friend, was also with the widow at this parting service.

Carl C. Pope was born in Washington, Orange county, Vermont, on July 22d, 1834, second son of Ralph and Mary (Richardson) Pope, to whom six sons and three daughters were born. He is of the tenth generation in direct descent from John Pope, who was of the Dorchester colony in Massachusetts, coming over the water in 1629. C. C. was the first of the Ralph Pope family to come west, but his parents and the younger children moved to Winona, Minn., in 1862.

He completed his school education at the Green Mountain Liberal Institute, South Woodstock, Vt. He studied law in the office of Lieutenant Governor (?). P. Kidder, at West Randolph, and was admitted to the bar at Chelsea January 24th, 1856. He then started west expecting to enter a law office at St. Charles, Ill., in company with a cousin to his father, but finding the expected opening there already filled he started for Iowa, but was deflected to La Crosse by knowledge of the fact that an acquaintance by the name of A. W. Barron was located there. At La Crosse he learned that Johnson & Price, who were then practicing law at Black River Falls, would accept an assistant and he came here and entered their office. This was in March, 1856, fifty-five years ago. Some three or four months latter he opened a law office for himself, and except for nine years in Superior had been steadily in the practice of that profession here up to six days before his death.

Mr. Pope's advent in Black River Falls anti dates that of the Banner by a few months, and he was among those who were instrumental in starting the paper, did much of the writing for it on its start and had been a frequent contributor to its columns ever since.

Probably the Banner cannot, at this time, do better than quote what it said of him in its golden anniversary editions, in 1906, as follows:   (quote from above 13 September 1906 article, starting from 'He is a man of regular habits ...' verbatim to 'That is a characteristic that courts mostly like in lawyers.')

Mr. Pope was married in this city on August 10th, 1859, to Miss Etta M. Hitchcock, who is a native of Troy, N. Y., daughter of Captain James Hitchcock, and who now survives him. One daughter and one son were born to them - Eugenia and Ralph C. The former became Mrs. E. A. LeClair, and died in 1885, leaving one son, Hugh, heretofore mentioned. Ralph lived to become a partner with his father, but died a number of years ago while thus serving."

Notes for Ellen M. Hitchcock:

"'Mrs. Carl C. Pope Passes Away'

Mrs. Carl C. Pope, one of the oldest residents of the city and county, passed away at the home of Mrs. Kate Vance on Monday, December 30, 1929, lacking only a few months of being ninety years of age.

Mrs. Pope retained her remarkable vitality until about six weeks ago. She became quite ill, and was scarcely recovered when she suffered a severe attack of shingles. From that she also rallied, but her strength was so exhausted that when she again became ill, last week, her physicians held out no hope of her again leaving her bed. She continued to fail until death released her suffering Sunday night at 11 o'clock.

Mrs. Pope came to this city as the bride of the late Col. C. C. Pope, to whom she was married on August 10, 1859. He was then gaining prominence as a lawyer and man of affairs, and he had erected the home on the hill to which he brought his bride, after a long wedding journey from West Troy, New York, by the slow methods of travel common to that earlier period. She continued to make her home there until a few years ago, when her advanced years compelled her to relinquish household responsibilities. She has since been tenderly cared for by Mrs. Lida Sprester and Mrs. Vance. Colonel Pope died on February 23, 1911.

Two children were born to them, a daughter Eugenia, later Mrs. Edgar A. Le Clair, and a son, Ralph C. Pope. The daughter died in 1885, leaving one son, Commander Le Clair, of the United States navy, now the naval attache of the American embassy at Paris. The son, Ralph, who was engaged in practice with his father, died about twenty years ago.       Mrs. Pope had a charming personality and for many years she was an active participant in the social affairs of the city. Her husband gained a state-wide reputation as a lawyer and orator, and he served many terms in the Wisconsin legislature. She was his faithful helpmate and shared in the pleasures and honors of his prominence.

She was fondly regarded by the many who knew her. She was kindly and considerate of others, always of a cheerful manner, and during her seventy years in the community she was favorably known to nearly all its people. Though she suffered great sorrow in the death of her children and later of her husband, her declining years were marked by her continued interest in her friends and her home city.

The funeral services will be held tomorrow (Wednesday) at 6 p. m. at the home of Mrs. Kate Vance, Rev. W. H. Penn officiating. Interment will be made at Riverside."

"'Mrs. Carl C. Pope'

Mrs. Carl C. Pope, one of the oldest residents of the city and county, passed away at the home of Mrs. Kate Vance on Monday, December 30th, 1929. Funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon, January 1, 1930, at 3 p. m. from the Vance home, Rev. W. H. Penn officiating. Interment was made at Riverside.

Miss Ellen M. Hitchcock was a daughter of Captain and Mrs. James Hitchcock. She was born May 1, 1840, and was reared to womanhood at West Troy, New York. Her father was a captain for many years of one of the steamers plying between Troy and New York City.

She was united in marriage on August 10, 1859, to the late Col. Carl C. Pope, who brought her as a bride to this city, and to the home he had erected for her on the hill, in which she continued to reside until a few years ago when her advanced age compelled her to give up maintaining a home of her own.

Two children were born to Col. and Mrs. Carl C. Pope, a daughter, Eugenia, later Mrs. Edgar A. Le Clair, and a son, Ralph C. Pope. The daughter died in 1885 and Ralph passed on about twenty years ago. One grandson, Commander Le Clair, of the United States Navy, survives. He is now the naval attache of the American embassy at Paris.

Mrs. Pope was held in the highest regard by a wide circle of friends for her many endearing qualities.

Mrs. Winslow and Mrs. Ida Knobloch, of Eau Claire, and Miss Georgia Le Claire, of Superior, were those who came from away to attend her funeral."

Notes for Eugenia M. Pope:

"'DIED'

LeClair. - At her home in this city, Monday evening, November 16, Mrs. Genia LeClair, wife of E. A. LeClair, aged 24 years.

The circle of friends that but a few weeks ago rejoiced with the parents at the birth of a son, now mourns in deepest sorrow the death of the mother. The young wife thus suddenly and unexpectedly called from husband and child, kindred and friends, was born and grew up in this city, and was well known throughout the community, especially among the younger people, leaving many friends to join in sincere sorrow at the sad tidings. She graduated from the high school in 1879. Her marriage took place September 26, 1883. Her child was born October 21, 1885. Her death was an unlooked-for shock, her condition not having been regarded as at all critical. The funeral was held from the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Pope, yesterday morning, Rev. W. H. H. Ross conducting the sad services in the presence of a large gathering of friends.

Death is seldom other than a most unwelcome visitor. But it is especially difficult to realize the result of its work and become in any measure reconciled to it in a case like this; the life of the departed one was spared until bound to the earth by the strongest of mortal ties, closely interwoven with the lives of others, and still the dreadful summons has come while yet so much of life seemed to lie in the future, which offered so much to live for. No human aid can lessen the grief of the afflicted ones, but their burden is shared by many sympathizing friends."

Notes for Edgar A. LeClair:

"'Death of Edgar A. LeClair'

Edgar A. LeClair, prominent in Superior affairs for more than forty years, passed away at his home at 1721 Hughett avenue in that city on Thursday, February 21, 1929, at the age of 72 years. The funeral services were held from the Masonic Temple at Superior on Saturday afternoon, Rev. R. Ernest Bayles officiating. Interment was made at Greenwood cemetery.

Mr. LeClair had been in ill health for a year or more.

He was born in Colden, New York, on July 17, 1856, son of Mr. and Mrs. Algeroy Le Clair. The family came to this city in 1862, and the father was a prominent business man here for thirty years.

Mr. Le Clair graduated from the Black River Falls high school with its first class in 1876. Later he entered the office of the late William T. Price as bookkeeper and office manager, continuing in that capacity until 1888. West Superior was then undergoing extensive development, and he went to that city, which had since been his home. He was engaged in the real estate business ever since locating in that city.

He was married in this city to Miss Eugenia Pope, daughter of Mrs. and the late Hon. Carl C. Pope, in September, 1885. One son, Commander Hugh B. LeClair, of the United States Navy, now naval attache of the U. S. embassy at Paris, was born to their union.

He was later married to Miss Sadie Reddington, who now survives him, with two sons, Lawrence G. Le Clair, of Superior, and A. R. Le Clair, of Memphis, Tennessee, and one daughter, Howard Cox, of Superior. He also leaves one sister, Miss Georgia LeClair, of Superior, and one brother, A. P. LeClair, of Missoula, Montana.

Mr. LeClair became a member of the Masonic orders in this city, afterward transferring his membership to the lodges at Superior.

He was a man of excellent business ability, and from his young manhood he was identified with large business transactions. Entering the business world at Superior, when that city was undergoing its great expansion, he was among its leading its leading citizens for many years.

He always was a public spirited citizen, and he was a participant in the larger affairs of Superior. During the World war he rendered valuable service on the selective service board.

Of a genial personality, he made many friends, and his interest in them was loyal and lasting. He was a kindly man, generous and approachable, and among all his associations he had [photcopy line illegible]. He was devoted to his family and a friendly neighbor.

Mr. Le Clair was always fondly remembered by his many friends in this city, and their sincere sympathy goes out to his family and relatives in their bereavement."

Notes for Ralph Carl Pope:

"'The Late Ralph Carl Pope'

In accordance with announcement the funeral services of Ralph C. Pope were held at the house Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, under the auspices of Black River Lodge No. 74, A. F. & A. M., conducted by C. M. Marsh of Neillsville. There were no preaching services. There was a long line of Masons and Modern Woodmen in attendance at the funeral to take part in the services there and follow the remains to the city cemetery to there assist in the performance of the last sad rites in tribute to a departed comrade of eminent worth. There were also many friends in attendance and would have been many more but for the stormy conditions of the weather and inadequacy of the house to accomodate a crowd.

The large array of beautiful floral tributes included a harp-shaped device by the members of the city orchestra, pillows by the Masonic, Modern Woodmen and Knights of Pythias lodges of this city, the K. of P. lodge of Superior, to which he formerly belonged, and numerous similar tributes by personal friends.

Messrs. F. M. Taylor and F. W. Werner and Misses Margaret Price and Irma Greenlee did the singing and the following Masons acted as pallbearers: C. F. Hille, W. F. Maddocks, F. F. Oderbolz, F. M. Taylor and Frank Johnson, of this city, and Mr. Kellogg, of Minneapolis.

Ralph Carl Pope was born in this city March 16th, 1867, son of Carl C. and Mrs. Ellen M. Hitchcock Pope, and  died here, at his home in the first ward, on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 15th, 1905, of septicemia, after an illness of only two weeks. He thus lacked just one day of being 38 years of age. He was reared in this city, educated in our city schools and here studied law in the office of his father. He was serving as city clerk when his father concluded to and did open a law office in the then marvelously promising city of Superior, and in 1892 resigned this office to also cast his lot in the "city of destiny" at the head of the lakes. In the fall of the same year he was there admitted to the bar upon application therefore before Judge Marshall. After that he clerked several years in the law offices with which his father was connected, and in 1897 became a partner with his father and H. L. Perrin in the law firm of Pope & Perrin. Two years later he and his father returned here and opened an office under the firm name of Pope & Pope, continuing in the practice up to this time with success in keeping with the field. He had a popular standing with the people of Superior, and at the time he left there was holding membership on the fire and police commission, which he resigned to return to his old home.

The deceased did not make any pretense as a trial lawyer. In fact, his father and partner being one of the best court lawyers in this section he never felt the necessity of fitting himself in that line. He was a systematic and painstaking office attorney, however, and he and his father worked well together, so that few law firms had their work always so well in hand as had Pope & Pope. Ralph was a man of fine presence and ready wit and always ranked among the favorites in any society he entered. He was a fine musician, being a good singer and an expert cornet player. He has been a member of the city orchestra since its organization. Besides being an honored member of the fraternal orders above mentioned he was also a member of the State Bar Association and of the Sons of the American Revolution, one of his forefathers having fought in the revolutionary war.      On June 3rd, 1896, Mr. Pope was married at Superior to Miss Mary A. Gowling, at a double wedding, at the magnificent home of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Pattison, uncle and aunt of the two brides. The other bride was Miss Eva I. Thayer and the groom Francis C. Hamen. Not long afterwards Mr. Hamen was drowned.

The following relatives and friends from abroad were in attendance at the funeral: J. C. and Wm. H. Pope of Mora, Minn., uncles; Hugh H. LeClair Superior, a nephew; Mrs. Edna Marshall of Plainview, Minn., a cousin; W. E. Gowling of Duluth, brother of Mrs. Pope; Mrs. Martin Pattison of Superior, aunt of Mrs. Pope; Mrs Eva Niles of Duluth (fromerly Mrs. Hamen) cousin of Mrs. Pope; Miss Florence Wicklin of Chicago, lifelong friend of the family; Wm. M. Kellogg of Minneapolis, who was fire chief at Superior at the time that the deceased was a member of the fire and police commission there. Judge O'Neill and several attorneys from Neillsville were also present.

The aging parents, who have thus lost their only hope in their declining years, and the widow, who is thus left alone, have the most heartfelt sympathy of a sorrowing community."

Notes for Mary A. Gowling:

Ralph Pope and Mary Gowling were married in the home of Superior, Wisconsin mayor Martin Pattison -

"Hymen's Bells,

Their Music Will Fill a Scene of Surpassing Beauty at "Fairlawn" This Afternoon,

At the Union of the Misses Gowling and Thayer to Messrs. Pope and Hamen.'

"Thrice happy they, the happiest of their kind!,

When gentle stars unite, and in one fate

Their hearts, their fortunes and their beings blend!"

One of the most elaborate social functions of the season will occur at "Fairlawn," the home of mayor and Mrs. Martin Pattison at 5:30 this afternoon, the occasion being the marriage of their nieces, Miss Mary Ann Gowling to Mr. Ralph C. Pope and Miss Eva Irene Thayer to Mr. Francis Clark Hamen, all of this city. Only the relatives and immediate friends will witness the marriage ceremony.

"Fairlawn" never looked so beautiful as when its spacious apartments were decked with flowers and foliage and arranged for this evening's event. Palms and many rare plants from the conservatory filled the many niches and corners, while an exquisite bunch of Jacqueminot roses stood upon the hall table. The parlor is decorated with pink and white roses and smilax in festoons over the mantle, the music room with white and yellow flowers, while the reception room and library beyond present a most effective picture with American beauties and other beautiful flowers amidst the green foliage of the potted plants.

At 5:30 the sweet strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march will come from the music room, Mr. Pattison with his two nieces, preceded by his two little daughters carrying baskets of flowers will march down the front stairway. They will be met at the alcove in the parlor by the two grooms. The ceremony will be performed under a curtain of smilax, between the draperies of which hangs an exquisite bell of delicate flowers. The solemn Episcopal marriage service will be pronounced by Rev. M. Barton of the Church of the Redeemer. Soft music, an impromptu by Prof. Wells, will add impressiveness to the occasion.

The brides will be given away by their uncle, Mayor Pattison, and they will look beautiful in their gowns of gloris silk. Miss Gowling's dress is trimmed with pearl ornaments and she will carry a handkerchief of lace, one hundred and fifty years old. Miss Thayer's gown is trimmed with honiton lace, while she will carry a lace handkerchief carried by a great aunt upon a similar occasion in England.

As the ceremony closes, Lohengrin's Bridal Chorus will echo through the rooms. After congratulations by the bridal party, the company will be invited to the dancing room upon the third floor which has been converted into a temporary dining hall. The tables are set in the form of the letter E, and present a most dainty appearance, with apple-blossoms and pink candlesticks used as decorations. A supper consisting of croquettes, cold meats, Saratoga chips, salads, jellies, finger-rolls, olives, salted almonds, ice cream and strawberries will be served to about fifty guests.

The brides will cut the wedding cake. After supper the doors will  be thrown open into the billiard room where the guests may admire the numerous gifts of silver, cut glass, rare China, pictures, beautiful embroidery, linen, etc.

The Reception.   Shortly after 8 p. m., the guests will arrive for the reception, and as they pass down the from the dias they will be received by Mr. and Mrs. Pattison, Mrs. Gowling, Mr. and Mrs. Pope, and Mrs. Hamen. From there they will pass to the parlor where congratulations will be extended to the happy couples.

Alexander's orchestra will furnish music for the occasion. Refreshments will be served in the dining room which is decorated with climbing asparagus, festooned from the chandelier to the corners of the table, the table being strewn with pink carnations and the pink and white effect will be further carried out by pink candles, white and pink ribbon candles and vases of pink roses. Mrs. Bell will preside at the table, assisted by Miss Lou Hicks. Refreshments consisting of ices, cake, coffee and chocolate will be served by Misses Anna Mitchell, Jennie Shortt, Mattie Pattison and Grace Frink, Messrs. Harry Newton and T. A. Ruane.

As the guests leave the dining room they may pass out through the green house beyond.

About four hundred will be in attendance. The guests from outside the city will be Mr. and Miss Browm, St. Paul; Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Bell, Ely, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Pike, Ely, Minn.; Miss Anna Mitchell, Marquette, Mich.; Mr. and Mrs. Gowling, mother and brother of Miss Gowling, Marquette; Mr. E. A. Glover, Hudson, Wis.; Mrs. John E. Glover, New Richmond, Wis.; J. C. Pope, Mora, Minn.; Raleigh Pope, Mora, Minn.; Mrs. A. J. Youngbuth, Ishpeming; Mrs. G. J. Simpson, South Range; Mr. and Mrs. T. E.

"'Mrs. Mary G. Pope'

The remains of Mrs. Mary G. Pope, who died at Superior on November 2d, were brought here, last Wednesday night, and taken to the home of Mrs. C. C. Pope. The funeral services were held there on Friday afternoon, under the auspices of the Eastern Star.

 Mrs. Pope was born at Port Huron, Michigan, on April 25, 1872. She came to Wisconsin in 1887, and made her home with her aunt, Mrs. Martin Patterson, at Superior. She was married there, on June 3, 1896, to Ralph C. Pope, and in 1898 they moved to this city. Mr. Pope died on March 15, 1905, and she then returned to Superior, where she had since made her home with her aunt.

She had been in ill-health for more than a year, and went to a Boston Hospital with the hope of obtaining relief. Last July she again visited here, and went from here to Boston for further treatment. The skill of the surgeons was without avail, and after visiting with friends in Michigan she returned to Superior, where she rapidly failed.

She is survived by four brothers, William E. Gowling, of California, George W. Gowling, of Mitchell, S. Dak., R. J. Gowling, a vessel captain on the Great Lakes, and Thomas A. Gowling, of Marquette, Michigan. All were present at her funeral except R. J., to whom the news of her death could not be communicated in time for him to get here. Her other surviving relatives are her aunt, Mrs. Patterson, and her mother-in-law, Mrs. C. C. Pope. Among others who came here to attend the funeral were Mrs. Patterson and Mrs. William Whitney, of Superior, and Mrs. William E. Gowling.

Mrs Pope was held in the highest esteem by the people of this city. During her residence here of several years she endeared herself to many good friends by her amiable qualities, and by frequent visits here since her return to Superior she was able to retain her warm interest in our people and their interest in her. She was bright of mind and liberal in her disposition toward all of her large circle of acquaintances. Deep sympathy goes out to the bereaved relatives in their sorrow."

        127.  Hon. John Franklin8 Pope (Ralph7, Thomas6, David5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, John1) was born 07 Oct 1836 in Washington, Orange, Vermont374,375,376, and died abt. 17 Apr 1900377,378.  He married Sarah Louisa Welch379 11 Dec 1864, daughter of Samuel Welch and Louisa Elington.  She was born 26 Nov 1846 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama380, and died 07 Oct 1934 in Bloomington Twp., Hennepin, Minnesota381.

 

Notes for Hon. John Franklin Pope:

 

enumerated as "F. J. Pope" in the 1880 census in Plainview, Wabasha county, Minnesota.

 

"Pope, Hon. John F., lawyer, and ex-judge of probate for Wabasha county, was the fourth child and third son in a family of nine children born to Ralph and Mary (Richardson) Pope, of Orange, Orange county, Vermont. Judge Pope was born October 7, 1836. His early life was spent on a farm. Young Pope had the advantages of the country school, but when he had reached the age of sixteen years had made a sorry record as a student, his highest ambition being to escape school duties and evade punishment for his frequent violations of the rules of school government. Fortunately he had a brother of scholarly acquirements, who opened a select school in the village of Orange the winter that our subject was sixteen, and in this school he became a conscript pupil, by order of a stern father. Finding himself obliged to attend school, his pride soon awakened him to a sense of shame for the great ignorance which he possessed when compared with his more studious schoolmates. There was no escape from the student life, and he could discover but one way to ameliorate his humiliating condition, and that was by hard study. Once fully resolved on this point, his really brilliant mind began to display its superior powers, and within two years he was in advance of those of his age and leading his classes. He taught school some and worked on the farm until he had reached his twenty-fifth year, and then came west and learned the mason trade, and also blacksmithing; those vocations he followed for many years in Beaver, Winona county. Having acquired some skill as a debater by attending lyceum in Vermont, he was frequently solicited to display his oratorical abilities as a pettifogger in Beaver and vicinity. His first appearance before a court was not such as tended to encourage his aspirations in that direction, he was pitted against a browbeating pettifogger, who knew enough to discover that Mr. Pope knew nothing of the business in hand, and the latter lost his case and felt very much crestfallen. A second encounter of this kind aroused his ire and grit, and though defeated he resolved to and did procure suitable law-books, and was well prepared to meet his pugilistic opponent, when for the third time he had occasion to appear before Justice H. B. Knowles and plead a case against Mr. Oliver Porter, the browbeating pettifogger above mentioned. The latter undertook to employ his usual tactics, and by physical force silence young Pope, but found his mild-mannered opponent of former suits was ablaze with wrath and bursting with rage. He had risen to his feet, and stretching his tall form to its greatest height, he threatened with fierce language both lawyer and court, and menaced that tribunal of justice with utter annihilation unless he should be permitted to conduct his case according to the rules of practice. The effect was excellent, and from that time forth no one ever attempted to browbeat the new aspirant for forensic honors. It was more than eight years after this little episode occurred before Mr. Pope applied for admission to the bar. October 17, 1873, he passed a creditable examination and was admitted to practice by the circuit court of Winona county. The following year he came to Plainview and opened a law office. The spring of 1875 he formed a copartnership with Hon. H. P. Wilson, and the following fall was elected probate judge for Wabasha county, and was re-elected to the same position in 1877. His copartnership with Mr. Wilson was dissolved in 1876, since which time Mr. Pope has continued to practice law without a partner. He is a member of the Masonic chapter and has thrice been elected master of the blue lodge of Plainview. He was married December 11, 1864, to Sarah L. Welch, daughter of Samuel and Louiza Welch, of Winona county, by whom he has one child now living, Frank, born March 6, 1880."

 - History of Wabasha and Winona Counties (Minnesota), 1884, p. 1075

 

"Mrs. C. McFarlin leaves this evening for Plainview, where she will deliver the funeral sermon of the late Judge Pope of that place to-morrow afternoon."

 - Winona (Minnesota) Daily Republican, 19 April 1900, p. 3

 

"Hon. John F. Pope died at his home, in the village of Plainview, last week, after an illness of many months. He had practiced law for over twenty-five years in Wabasha county and was one of the oldest members of the bar. Judge Pope was born in Orange, Orange county, Vermont, October 7, 1836, and was in his 64th year at the time of death. He had a varied career, having taught school, learned the mason's trade, the blacksmithing trade, and having also followed farming for a time. He came to Minnesota in the early sixties and was admitted to the bar, in Winona county, in 1873. The following year he located in Plainview and that village remained his home up to the time of his death."

Notes for James R. Pope:

In the course of doing some research on James Pope's family, I received a response to a query I had posted on the Howell County, Missouri board at Ancestry.com. The respondent notified me that there was a listing for James R. Pope in the Civil War pension index. The file (under both James and Amanda's names) turned out to be about an inch thick, containing many affidavits relating to James Pope's disability acquired during his service as a private in Company C of the 10th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. The locations of these affidavits indicate that in 1886, 1890 and 1893 he was resident in (i.e., listed his post office at) Lac Qui Parle County, Minnesota. In February 1902, he was near Martell (Pierce County), Wisconsin, which is about 7-9 miles south of Baldwin, Wisconsin, where he was enumerated in the 1900 census. Then in July 1907, his post office is listed as Mountain View (Howell County), Missouri.

 

"James R. Pope, of Trempealeau, visited with his brother, Col. C. Pope, Friday last. The colonel says the difference between himself and brother is the difference between an honest farmer and an honest lawyer."

 - Badger State Banner (Black River Falls, Wisconsin), Thursday, 1 March 1900, p. 4

 

Sometime between 1904 and 1910, this Pope household picked up and moved from southwestern Wisconsin to Howell county, Missouri, which borders on the south with Arkansas. Why this particular move was taken is unknown.

Notes for Amanda Allen:

Liberty Twp., Wabash county, Indiana, where the Allen family is found in the 1850 census, is an adjoining township to Washington Twp., Grant county, where the Allen's are found in the 1860 census. It may be reasonable to presume all of Amer and Malinda's children were born in Liberty Twp. in Wabash county, Indiana.

 

I am not sure why Amanda (Allen) Pope is enumerated in her brother William's household in the 1900 Federal census in Trempealeau, but it may have been to help care for their 80 year-old mother, who was also in this household.

Obituary for W. H. H. Pope -

"' W. H. H. Pope Dies Monday Morning

Remains Taken to Plainview for Burial Tuesday'

W. H. H. Pope, pioneer resident of this community, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Stevenson, last Monday morning, August 31, at 3:00 o'clock. While his health for some time past has not been of the best, immediate members of the family did not anticipate the danger of his sudden demise, and news of his death came as a great shock to members of the family and intimate friends.

Wm. Henry H. Pope, born in Orange county, Vermont, March 18, 1841, came to Beaver, Minn., in 1860, later going to Black River Falls, Wis., where he studied law with his brother Carl C. Pope during the war. He was admitted to the bar in 1866. Returning to Minnesota he practiced law at Kasson, Minn. In Dec. 1868, he married Eliza J. Boatman at Elgin, Minn. To this union three children were born, Carl C., R. M., and Mrs. Frank Stevenson, all living in Mora at the present time. He is also survived by one brother, J. C. Pope of Mora. Mrs. Pope died in February, 1866. Mr. Pope bought a farm in Plainview, Minn., where he resided until he came to Mora about twenty-five years ago.

Upon coming here Mr. Pope entered the newspaper business upon the Kanabec County Times, of which his son, R. M., was at the time the owner. He was editor of this paper for several years and perhaps while serving in that capacity became best known to Kanabec county people. He was also at one time the assistant postmaster in the local post office. Mr. Pope had many good qualities, and while he has been unable to be about but little the past few years, he will be long remembered by his many friends who are grieved to learn of his demise.

Short funeral services were conducted by the Masonic Order, of which he was a member, at the home Tuesday, after which the remains were taken overland to Plainview, Minn., and interred beside those of his wife.

The following motored to Plainview, to attend the funeral: J. C. Pope, Carl C. Pope, R. M. Pope, Mrs. Frank Stevenson. Mrs Alice McKusick and Andrew Erickson also were in attendance."

"'R. M. Pope, Pioneer Mora Business Man, Dies

Death Occurs Early Wednesday Morning Following Period of Ill Health.'

Raleigh M. Pope of this village died unexpectedly of a heart attack at one o'clock yesterday morning. He had been ailing for some time. A few weeks ago he suffered a heart attack and spent time recuperating at the Pokegama hospital. He made no complaint of ill health during the hours preceding his death. He listened to the radio in the evening and said he was feeling fine. The attack came on without warning and he expired a few minutes after complaining that he felt faint.

Mr. Pope had been one of Mora's prominent citizens for many years and in his younger days took an active part in the affairs of the community. He came to Mora in September, 1895, to accept a job as printer on the Kanabec County Times, then operated by R. W. Safford, the founder.

The following January he bought the paper and conducted a fine successful newspaper until October, 1904, when he sold out to Henry Rines, who was retiring from the county auditor's office. At the time Mr. Pope was Mora's postmaster and found that his official duties prevented him from giving proper attention to his paper. He served two terms as postmaster.

Upon his retirement from the post office in 1913 Mr. Pope engaged in the real estate and insurance business, a business he had been interested in ever since.

During the World war he was secretary of the Kanabec count draft board. Beginning in 1921 he was appointed manager of an investigating bureau established in Washington for the Minnesota Soldiers Bonus board. In recent years in addition to his insurance business he has been engaged in farming operations. His only public service office was a member of the village council of Mora. He had held membership in the following fraternal and business organizations: A.F. and A.M., Shrine, I.O.O.F., M.W.A., Izaak Walton League, Minnesota Editorial Ass'n., and Mora Commercial club.

Raleigh M. Pope was born in Plainview, Minn., June 20, 1874, and was 68 years old at the time of his death. He learned the printer's trade early in life and went to Little Falls at the age of 16 to work at the Herald, in which his father, W. H. H. Pope, had an interest. He was there five years before coming to Mora. He married Cora Howard of Princeton in 1896, who has been dead many years. Two children were born to this union, Howard of Duluth and Marie (Mrs. A. C. Busse) deceased. He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Frank Stevenson of Mora.

Plans for the funeral service had not been announced as we went to press."

The obituary for Cora reads ...

"'Prominent Mora Lady Answers Call

Mrs. R. M. Pope Died Last Saturday

News Great Shock to Community'

A shadow of gloom was cast over the people of this village last Saturday when a telephone message brought the sad news of the death of Mrs. R. M. Pope, which occurred at the Mounds Sanitorium in St. Paul, where she had been under the care of specialists for several days.

Mrs. Pope was the victim of Influenza some months ago, which left her in a weakened condition, but nothing of a serious nature was expected to result from this until about ten days ago when she complained of her eyes and head bothering her at times. She was taken to specialists, but they were unable to diagnose her case, but thought it was brought on by the after effects of influenza.

Deceased was the daughter of Mrs. Ellen Howard, she was born at Princeton, Minn., on July 26th, 1875, where she spent her childhood days and received her early schooling. On Wednesday, Oct. 7, 1896, at the home of her parents at Princeton, she was married to Raleigh M. Pope, and they have since made their home in this village.

In the happy union of twenty-three years of married life, they have been blessed with two children, a daughter, Marie and a son Howard.

Besides her husband and children,  who are left to mourn her loss, she is survived by her mother, two sisters, Mrs. D. H. Cooper and Mrs. A. D. Erkel of Minneapolis and three brothers, A. R. Howard of Minneapolis, Alfonso, of Princeton and Millard, also of Princeton.

In the passing of Mrs. Pope, a faithful wife has gone beyond. She was a model mother, a dutiful daughter; a loving sister and a true friend to all who had the privilege of making her acquaintance. She was tireless as a church worker, being a member of the Ladies Aid Society of the M. E. church and was always ready to assist in sickness or lend aid where needed. She was endowed with one characteristic which few possess, that of being cheerful on all occasions and having a kind word for all.

Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the home, Rev. W. G. Boyle, officiating.

Deceased was a member of Mora Chapter No. 158, O. E. S. of this village and also of Golden Rule Rebekah lodge both organizations attending the last sad rites in a body to pay their last tribute to one they loved. The services at the grave in Oakwood cemetery were conducted by the Eastern Star Lodge and were very impressive. Mrs. Pope was fond of flowers, and the floral tributes were no doubt one of the largest ever seen in this county.

Among people from away, we attended the funeral we note: Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Cooper of Minneapolis; Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Erkel and daughter Virginia, and Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Howard and daughters Mae and Mildred of Princeton; Mr. and Mrs. Millard F. Howard and son Raymond of Princeton Mr. and Mrs. Oswold King of Princeton; Mrs. Ellen Howard of Princeton; Allyn Taylor and Miss Vera Wolford, of St. Paul."

his obituary -

"'Prominent Mora Citizen Passes Away Sunday

Frank E. Stevenson, Great Northern Agent Here 21 Years, is Called.'

Frank E. Stevenson, a well known and popular resident of Mora, passed away at his home here shortly after 9 o'clock last Sunday morning, following several days confinement to bed. Mr. Stevenson had suffered with liver trouble for more than a year, but with the exception of a short leave of absence at the beginning of his illness, had attended to his duties as agent for the Great Northern railway company here continuously until early last Thursday, when he became violently ill. Everything possible was done for him, but the malady had then reached a stage where medical treatment could accomplish very little, and his condition gradually grew more grave, until death ended his suffering.

Mr. Stevenson was a pioneer railroad man, having served the Great Northern Company for 36 years, 21 of which were spent as agent at Mora. He became eligible to retire on a pension about a month ago, but had chosen to continue working. During his long period of service here, he gained a multitude of friends, both in a business way and socially. There are many who will miss "Steve," as he was called by almost everyone who knew him, and his courteous and accommodating treatment of those having business at the depot will long be remembered. He was a member of the Mora Fire Department for many years and at his was its Captain. Fraternal organizations of which he was a member included the local Masonic Order, Osman Shrine Temple of St. Paul, and Order of Railroad Trainmen.

In the death of Mr. Stevenson this community loses a progressive and loyal citizen, and we join in extending sympathy to his sorrowing widow in her loss of a kind and devoted husband.

Frank Eldon Stevenson was born August 27, 1878, at Janesville, Minn., being at his death 52 years, 5 months and 18 days old. On February 16, 1908, he was united in marriage with Miss Mary E. Pope, at Minneapolis. He is survived by his widow; two sisters, Mrs. Lurline Knight of Pierre, South Dakota, and Mrs. E. M. Leighton, of Minneapolis, Minn., and one brother, Richard, of San Jose, California.

Funeral services were held at the home Tuesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, Rev. John Blackhurst officiating. E. M. Giblette rendered several vocal selections, after which the body was taken in charge by the Masonic Lodge of this village and the usual Masonic rites were performed at Oakwood cemetery. Six honorary pallbearers of the Mora Fire Department, of which the deceased was a member, preceded the funeral procession.

Among those from out of town attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Leighton, Miss Lucille Leighton, and Mrs. J. A. Spencer, of Minneapolis; Mrs. Lurline Knight and Miss Ruth Knight, of Pierre, S. D.; Mrs. E. W. Stone, Minneiska, Minn.; Mrs. J. Brackett and Mr. and Mrs. Herman Handschu, of Minneapolis, and Miss Maude Brackett, of St. Paul; E. A. Stevenson, Aberdeen, S. D."

"Warner Moore.

Warner Moore, thirty-one years old, formerly connected with the First National bank of this city, died early yesterday at his late home in Rochester. He was manager of the Schuster brewery at Rochester and was well known all over this section, being a prominent member of the Elks and the Masons. Death came after a lingering illness. He is survived by his wife and one son, ten years old. Mr. Moore was born on August 21, 1877, in Weaver, Minn., and went to school in Winona and became an employe in the First National bank until fifteen years ago when he went to Rochester to become employed in the office of the Schuster brewery. The funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock at the home in Rochester and will be in charge of the Rochester Elks. A number of Winonans will attend."

"'W. R. Moore Is Summoned

Well Known Rochester Citizen Passes Away After Short Period Of Critical Illness'

W. R. Moore is at rest. He has ceased to wage the valiant battle with disease and now sleeps the eternal sleep that knows no waking. The end came about the mid period last night following a critical condition which lasted several days.

When word went about the city Monday afternoon, that "Doc" Moore probably could not live, a feeling of sadness was experienced by all who knew him, and this morning when the news was received that the end had come, it was not like an unexpected blow, but nevertheless the grief felt by his many friends is poignant indeed, and only time will lessen the sorrow whose weight is now so heavy. For Warner R. Moore was a man well liked. He had a personality which was rare indeed. Jovial, friendly, entertaining as a conversationalist, whole-hearted and broad-minded, he had but to meet people to make them his friends. His outlook on life was a bright one and those who knew Mr. Moore were influenced by his cheery manners. Life to him meant saying something kindly here, doing something kindly there. In his work in the Elks lodge he often found opportunities for manifestations of these traits. He was for a term exalted ruler of the local order and there showed that he delighted in deeds of charity and benevolence.

Few men of Rochester, in their passing to another sphere of existence, have left more sincere mourners than has W. R. Moore, genial gentleman and faithful friend.

Mr. Moore was born August 21st, 1877, in Weaver, Minnesota. He went to school in Winona and became an employe of the First National Bank there. About fifteen years ago he came to Rochester to become employed in the offices of the Schuster Brewing Company. There his services have been invaluable. His desk will be one hard to fill. He became affiliated with the Elks and was chosen one of the first Exalted Rulers. He was also a Mason and a member of the Knights Templar. He held membership in the Maccabees.

He is survived by his wife and a little son, seven years old. His mother and father and one sister of Weaver, are also bereft.

The funeral is to be under the auspices of the Elks lodge Thursday after noon at two o'clock at the home on South Grove street."

Not "Weaver", but "Beaver", Minnesota. There is a Weaver, Minnesota just north and east of where Beaver, Minnesota was formerly located, so that could be the source of this confusion.

 

"'W. R. Moore Succumbs After Brave Fight With Death

Had Many Friends In City And State'

Warren R. Moore one of Rochester's most beloved citizens, passed away at fifteen minutes after twelve o'clock this morning, death being due to diabetes.

There have been but few times when a man has bid farewell to his loved ones on this earthly planet and answered the Great Master's call, that sorrow has entered so many homes in Rochester. For Mr. Moore always had a smile and a kindly word for all his acquaitances, and his passing will be deeply mourned.

Born in Beaver, Minn., Aug. 21, 1878, W. R. Moore secured his public school education in that town, after which he went to Winona and entered the Winona Business College. Completing his course in that institution, he accepted a position as bookkeeper in the First National Bank of Winona which station he held with credit and honor to himself. Fifteen years ago he entered the employ of The Schuster Brewing Company and was head bookkeeper and cashier for that company up to his death. He was a business man of exceptional ability and the place he leaves vacant by his untimely passing will be hard to fill.

On October 23, 1904, W. R. Moore and Miss Rica Schiltz were united in marriage in this city, and to this happy union one son, Gerald, was born. The sorrowing wife, who is confined to her home by sickness at this time, and the little son, survive.

To his more intimate friends, Mr. Moore was fondly called "Doc" and by this name he will long be remembered. As a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks the departed attained every honor the local lodge had in its power to confer, being twice elected Exalted Ruler. He was also a member of the Grand Lodge and was a member of the three Masonic orders and of the Maccabees, in all of which orders he at all times held the esteem and respect of his fellow lodge members.

Mr. Moore is also survived by father and mother and one sister. Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at two o'clock at the home on South Grove street. They will be conducted by the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks,"

Ever since he came to Mora in the summer of 1884 and established a law office here when Mora was in its infancy he had been one of the county's most prominent citizens and had a leading part in the upbuilding of the village and in the development of the county.

September 9, 1884 he was appointed county attorney of Kanabec county, succeeding M. R. Kent, founder of the town of Mora, who resigned in his favor. He continued in that position until January 1, 1899. In the fall of 1898 he was elected to the lower branch of the legislature and served two terms, after which he retired voluntarily to private life. In 1885 he was elected town clerk of Arthur township, a position which he held several years. He was also treasurer of the Mora school district at one time. During the period he was county attorney he also held the position of court commissioner several terms. The accompanying picture is a likeness of Mr. Pope during the period he was in the legislature.

Mr. Pope was admitted to the bar while a resident of Lac qui Parle county. He studied law in the office of John C. Arctander, at that time a prominent western Minnesota lawyer. He served as county attorney of Lac qui Parle county one term before removing to Kanabec county.

Coming to Mora as an unknown young attorney he soon acquired a wide reputation as a lawyer and as an orator of more than ordinary ability. His address on the occasion of the first Fourth of July celebration held in Mora in 1885 was an eloquent masterpiece and established for him a permanent reputation of unusual oratorical attainments.

Nature had endowed him with a keen, analytical mind, and with a judicial temperament. His unusual success as a lawyer was due to this endowment. He was at his best in the trial of cases before a jury, where he was able to use his eloquence most effectively.

Besides his law practice, Mr. Pope became interested in the buying and selling of village property and farm lands. He also became financially interested in other business undertakings, and was considered to have made a business success.

Mr. Pope was a kindly man. His was an unusual and outstanding character. It pained him to offend. He would rather suffer financial loss than hurt one's feelings. He was generous in his dealings with mankind. Retaining a friendship was more important to him than mere monetary gain. Because of his genial, openhearted nature he acquired many loyal friends. These were not confined to his home community but in the years when he was active in public life extended throughout the state. Although he had reached the unusual age of four score and five his passing will be felt in the community and he will be missed not only by his close friends and neighbors but by a wide circle of acquaintances.

The Pope name is frequently mentioned in the history of this country and in England where the family originated. The family tree shows that the Popes have acquired prominence in business; as lawyers; judges, and in other professions; as statesmen, poets, the ministry, and in times of war in the defense of their country.

The deceased was of the ninth generation lineage of the New Hampshire branch of the Dorchester Pope family, descendants of the Plymouth, England, Dorchester church colony, which set sail in the "Mary and John," on March 20th, 1629, for America, the new land, and six weeks later began the first permanent settlement on Boston bay. Members and descendants of this colony were prominent in the early history of the colonies, and in the revolutionary period of our country.

Jacob C. Pope was born in Washington, Vermont, March 12, 1849, and was educated in the common schools of his native state. He came west in 1860 and settled in Beaver, Winona county, Minnesota. He was united in marriage to Elva Struble, sister of the late E. L. Struble, June 29, 1882. Following their marriage the newly wedded couple established their home in Lac qui Parle county. In July, 1884, they came to Mora since which time both resided here continuously. Mrs. Pope died January 14, 1904. He was married again to Emma Lou Hudlow in St. Paul February 16, 1914. He was the youngest of a family of six sons and three daughters, none of whom are living. He is survived by his widow and a son, Jacob, by his last marriage.

The remains will lie in state at the home next Saturday from two to six o'clock. Sunday morning at 9 o'clock a private funeral will be conducted from the home for Masons and their wives, following which the remains will be taken to Plainview, Minn., for burial beside those of his first wife. Rev. A. H. Norum of St. Paul will officiate.

Active pallbearers will be Julius Edin, Henry M. Halvorson, Kleo McIlhargey, Nathan Cohen, Frank Gorham, and Dr. W. F. Nordman. Honorary pallbearers: Geo. H. Newbert, W. W. Tenney, Henry Rines, H. A. Cohen, C. S. Bossert, L. E. Conger, J. B. Gorham, C. E. Williams, C. C. Jarvis, Chas. F. Serline, A. M. Anderson, P. S. Olsen, Geo. L. Angstman, and S. Alfred Halgren."

As I reckon it, this Jacob Pope was of the eighth (not ninth) generation from the immigrant ancestor, John Pope. This is different from the account given by Charles Henry Pope, who in his "History of the Dorchester Pope Family" makes a case for the immigrant John Pope to have been the one who was made a freeman in Dorchester in 1634. However, the will of this John Pope mentions no male heirs, only a daughter. I believe that it is possible that the father of these American Pope's was another John Pope (apparently from Kent, not from Dorsetshire), who came on a ship in 1637.

 

I couldn't be sure (for the longest time), what the middle initial "C." stood for in Jacob's name. Examination of the 1920 birth certificate of his son (Jacob, Jr.) reveals it (possibly) for both of them - the "C" is for "Collamer". Googling "Jacob Collamer" yields a likely explanation. Jacob Collamer was a prominent Vermont statesman and U.S. Representative and Senator. Jacob Collamer's association with the Woodstock Institute perhaps brought him into contact with Ralph Pope and the several of Ralph Pope's sons who also attended that school, such that Ralph chose to name his youngest son after the Honorable Mr. Collamer in 1849.

 

Jacob Pope's obit fails to mention his marriage to Elizabeth Tyler. An account from the local newspaper is given below -

"'Marriage of J. C. Pope

Prominent Local Citizen Takes Minneapolis Lady For His Bride. Will Reside Here.'

Since the announcement in last week's issue of the Times that a marriage license had been issued at Minneapolis to Hon. J. C. Pope of this village and Mrs. Elizabeth Tyler of Minneapolis, Mr. Pope's many friends have been showering him with congratulations.

The announcement was a great surprise here as none had even an inkling of Mr. Pope's intentions. The wedding occurred at Minneapolis on Monday of last week at 11 o'clock a. m. A short wedding trip was taken to Duluth and vicinity. Mrs. Pope will remain for the present with her mother, Mrs. Anna Barkhard, at Minneapolis until Mr. Pope can make the necessary arrangements to commence housekeeping here.

Little is know of the bride here except that she is an exemplary lady and one who will make a worthy life partner for Mr. Pope.

J. C. Pope is a leading attorney of this village and is well known thru-out the state, having been prominent in politics and in his profession for many years.

The Times and a large circle of friends join in wishing Mr. Pope and his bride a happy and prosperous future."

Now Jacob and Elizabeth, and a two year-old son Ralph, appear in the 1910 census listing in Mora, living on Forest Avenue. But by the 1920 census Jacob is shown in Mora village as childless with a wife named "Emma L.", and shown again in the 1930 census (still in Mora), where Jacob is listed with wife "Emmaline"(?) and 9 year-old son Jacob. So, what happened to (Mrs.) Elizabeth (Tyler) Pope (and son Ralph) between April 1910 and Jacob's marriage to Emma Hudlow in February 1914?

Notes for Elva Struble:

The following death notice and obituary for Jacob Pope's first wife appeared in January 1904 -

 

"'Ends Suffering By Suicide.' - Driven to Despair by Ill Health, Mrs. J. C. Pope Seeks Relief in Death -     Our community was startled Thursday morning by the sad news that Mrs. J. C. Pope had ended her life by drowning in lake Mora. She has been a constant sufferer from insomnia and nervousness in extreme degrees for the past 13 years and as a relief by her own act sought dissolution.

Mr. Pope went to the cities Monday. He returned on the Wednesday evening train and went to his home and found the doors unlocked and a fire burning in the stove. He thought his wife was attending a L. O. T. M. meeting and came over town and staid around till bed time and went home and went to bed thinking his wife had returned and retired before him. On account of her sleeplessness, she has occupied an isolated room away from disturbances as much as possible for many years. She not making an appearance in the morning he went to her room and found it empty and in a conspicuous position was a letter which we publish below, which fully explains her motive for committing the deed.     'Dearest, best and truest of husbands, I leave these lines to tell you that I cannot longer endure the misery of sleeplessness and nervousness. I feel that my nerves are giving away and I shall be insane if I don't put and end to it. God alone knows what I have suffered and he will forgive me. I want everyone to know that you are in no way to blame for my suffering or the deed I am about to commit. Your loving wife, ELVA'     With this clue search was commenced and her track leading to the lake soon discovered, which was followed to where ice was being cut for storing. Her cape lay on the snow and beneath the new frozen ice her form could be plainly seen. She had taken along a rope which she had tied securely around her waist, the other end was tied to a post that was set to fence around the hole in the ice. Her remains were taken to Plainview for interment. An obituary notice will be given next week."

 - Kanabec County Times (Mora, Minnesota), Friday, January 15, 1904, p. 1

 

"'Funeral of Mrs. Pope.'     A large percentage of the adult population of this city attended the funeral obsequies in honor of Mrs. J. C. Pope at the family residence on Maple avenue at 4 o'clock, Friday afternoon, Jan. 15, 1904. The ceremonies were impressive and beautiful and conducted by the L. O. T. M. lodge, of which the deceased was an active and honored member. At the close of the Maccabee ceremonies Rev. C. R. Oaten, the eloquent pastor of the local M. E. church, paid the following deserved tribute to the memory of the deceased.

'I have been asked to say a few words of comfort to these bereaved friends, and of appreciation for the character of the one whose departure from our midst we are called upon to mourn. I fully realize the inadequacy of anything I may say to bring real comfort in such sorrow, or to fully appreciate the character of the one whose good qualities must now linger with us only as a fond memory.

It is in such times as these that we realize somewhat of the apparent cruelty and mystery of our earthly career. One moment our friends are with us, and the next we have bid them a long farewell. We take our daily papers and read of the appalling disasters that fall upon whole communities when hundreds of lives are snuffed out in a moment, and the next day we go about our usual avocations and perhaps soon forget. But, when our own loved ones leave us, those who have companied with us thro life, those whom we have cherished as friends for almost a generation, then the wound is beyond human healing, and we must bring our sorrow to Him who "In all our afflictions is afflicted", and who marks the heart throbs of every soul burdened with woe.

Our friend was born nearly fifty years ago in the state of Indiana, and when quite young, came with her parents to this state. Twenty--two years ago she was married to our fellow townsman, Hon. J. C. Pope, and a year or two afterward they came to reside in our community, ever since which time she has been closely associated with the social, moral and philanthropic development of our community life. There are those here in this presence who have known her intimately during all these years, whose lips are filled only with words of loving appreciation for her many acts of kindness and thoughtfulness.

There are some lives which need glowing words of eulogy at the close, but there are other lives whose greatest eulogy is the record of kindly words spoken and loving, sympathetic deeds, performed in out of the way places, and for persons so often overlooked by the majority. One of the greatest pleasures in the life of this our friend was to bring comfort to the sorrowing, and aid to the needy and unfortunate. In the early days, when settlement in the county was sparse, and neighbors few, and modern comforts hard to procure, then many a sufferer received attention from the hands now still, and often, in the absence of others of greater strength, the last sad rites for the dead have been given by these same hands.

If we could today have the testimony of all those who during these years have received aid and comfort, and sympathy from this source, what a chorus we should hear.

Then, she took a vital interest in everything, of whatever nature, which pointed toward the moral or social betterment of the community, and we can not think of any of these movements as they stand related to our community, without associating her thought and energy with them. In matters of religion, the same breadth of thought, and clearness of conception was shown. She believed in, and ever looked up to God - that God of goodness, mercy, and love, who is more and more coming to fill the heart and thought of the world. Being naturally of a quiet, reserved disposition, she scarcely ever referred to matters of this nature, and only those who knew her most intimately ever heard her make any reference to them, and yet her convictions were none the less firm and her faith none the less real - a conviction, and faith which gave rise to the greatest usefulness and strength of character.

I feel that it is not within my privilege to enter the realm of her friendships. That is too sacred a place for the prying eye of strangers. It is enough to say that the friendships of her life were strong and true and lasting, indeed, who will say that they are not Eternal.

The longer I live, the more thoroughly I believe that such lives as these are beyond the necessity of human praise. We had better leave it all with God. His discrimination is infinitely true, and his appreciation is infinitely just, but, as we think of such lives as these, no one but who remembers the poet's words, that, "No life can be pure in its purpose And strong in its strife, And all life not be stronger thereby."'

The remains of the departed sister were escorted to the depot by over 30 members of the lodge. The funeral party, consisting of J. C. Pope, E. L. Struble, Orlando Struble, R. M. Pope, Mrs. J. A Lewis, Miss Maude Brackett and Miss Edna Danforth, accompanied the remains to Plainview. They left on the Friday evening train by the way of Hinckley, and arrived in Plainview Saturday evening about 6 o'clock. Funeral services were held from the M. E. church in Plainview on Sunday conducted by Rev. W. E. King and interment made at Greenwood cemetery.

Elva Struble, was born at Taylorsville, Indiana, on Feb. 14, 1854, and died at Mora, Minn., Jan. 13, 1904. She came with her parents to Minnesota in the year 1865. She was united in marriage with J. C. Pope at Wabasha, Minn., on June 29th, 1882.

They immediately went to Lac qui Parle and commenced housekeeping and remained there for about two years. They then came to Mora where she has since resided. She was the mother of one child, which died in infancy. She is survived by her husband, her mother, four brothers and four sisters. She was by nature endowed with strong intellectual faculties, a kind and peacable disposition, yet independent and self reliant in all matters. She was a faithful, devoted and loving wife, a true and steadfast friend, and in all respects a model of virtue and goodness. She was a good and noble woman and through the friendly portal of death has found relief from years of constant suffering.'

Notes for Emma Lou Hudlow:

It seems probable to me that Emma Lou Hudlow was the same as the Emma Hudlow, age 6, listed in the 1900 census in Bergen Twp., McLeod county, Minnesota, daughter of farmer John Hudlow and his wife Marietta.

 

The 1914 marriage record of Emma Lou to Jacob Pope says that she was from Grant county, Indiana. However, the 1920 birth record of their son, Jacob, Jr., says her birthplace was Excelsior, Minnesota.

 

"Beaver

 ... Mrs. J. C. Pope and son Jacob, of Duluth visited E. W. Stone Friday."

 - Winona (Minnesota) Republican-Herald, 11 July 1935, p. 12

 

The death certificate for "Emmilou D. Pope" confirms her parents names (John Hudlow, b. Cincinnati, Ohio; Mary Berry, b. Marion, Indiana) and her (late) husband as Jacob Pope. Her listed birthplace of "Mayer, Minnesota" is at the intersection of Waconia, Camden and Watertown townships in Carver County, so that is fairly consistent with the census data for the Hudlow's. Her listed birth date of "December 22, 1900" seems to be wrong in the year; "Emma" is a 6 year-old in the 1900 Federal census and a 2 year-old in the 1895 Minnesota State census.

Notes for Jacob Collamer Pope, Jr.:

"'Jacob Pope Takes Bride in California'

Friends here have received announcements of the marriage of Jacob Pope, son of Mrs. Emma Lou Pope, and Miss Jane Montgomery, daughter of Mrs. Guy Edmund Hibbs, at Beverly Hills, California, on Friday, December 11.

The groom, who spent his boyhood in Mora, now has employment in connection with moving picture work in California, and his bride is doing defense work.

A host of friends extend congratulations and best wishes to the couple."

 - Kanabec County Times (Mora, Minnesota), 7 January 1943, p. 1, c. 7 (copy and citation courtesy of the Kanabec History Center)

 

I had some correspondence with Richard H. Rhode in February 2007, where he sent me the following description from an interview with Richard S. Rhode, who was married to Jane Hibbs' older sister Virginia Hudlow -

"Jacob Pope's father was an attorney in northern Minnesota. Jake and his mother moved to Duluth after the father died. Jake had a Pontiac convertible and a bottle of booze. He met Jane in Duluth and they were attracted to each other. Her mother took her and her sisters to California to break up the relationship, but he followed Jane to California, where they got married in the 1940s during the war. She was working at Douglas Aircraft at the time. He had inherited money from his father and mother. He liked to go to the pool hall and bet on the horses; he lost all the money. She divorced him about 1950 in Las Vegas after a six week stay. Subsequently she worked for Grolliers Encyclopedia.

[source: Richard S Rhode 22 Feb 2007]."

 

I subsequently obtained a copy of Jacob's California death certificate, which had several interesting features. Under his name (Jacob Collamer Pope) was also listed an alias as "Jacob Robert Peters". The date of birth matches that on his Minnesota birth certificate (14 September 1920). Curiously, his mother's maiden name is listed as Emmilou Callahan, of Pennsylvania - I think this maiden surname and location are simply erroneous. The informant on the death certificate is "Anita Peters".

 

Ancestry. com has some California voters registration lists amongst their available databases. For 1942 there are listings for Mrs. Emmilou Pope and for Jacob C. Pope, both at 165 S. Vermont avenue in Los Angeles, Pct. No. 1367. In 1944 there are listings for Mrs. Myrtle Hibbs and Miss Lois Ann Hibbs at 316A S. Reeves Drive (Burly Hills City Pct. No. 48 (Los Angeles Co.)) - this is Janes Hibbs' mother and younger sister. This same Hibbs listing shows up again in 1946 where the location is given as "Beverly Hills City Pct. No. 48"; a Mrs. "Jane H. Pope" is also listed at the same address as Myrtle and Lois. Same information on the 1948 register as in 1946. Same information for Myrtle Hibbs and "Mrs. Jane H." Pope in the 1950 register; Lois Hibbs was married in 1949. Then the 1952 and 1954 registers in Los Angeles City Pct. No. 1951 list Mrs. Myrtle Hibbs and Miss Jane M. Hibbs, both at 1908 S. Beverly Glen Blvd. In addition, the 1952 and 1954 lists for Los Angeles City Pct. No. 1763 show Mrs. Anita O. Peters and Jacob R. Peters at 5640 Franklin Avenue. These data are consistent with the information on the death certificate and the interview account from Richard Rhode.

 

A copy of Jacob and Jane's marriage record shows they were married on 11 December 1942 at St. Alban's (sp?) Chapel, West Los Angeles. I think this is probably known now as St. Alban's Episcopal Church, at 580 Hilgard Avenue. This is a little west of Beverly Hills, and is across the street from the campus of UCLA.
