Notes for SARAH ANN BARTLETT:
My Grandpa Wilson's Mother & Step father
(Othe Hendrix & Sarah)
My Mother Mable Marguerite McKinstry wrote this.
Othe and Sarah Hendrix come to Iowa from Grant county Indiana - They come on what they called the "High Road" - Some of Sarah's family - The Flemings come on the "Low Road", and the Indians attacked their wagon train and took 2 of the Fleming children. - The older one got away - but they never heard from the other son again. Othe and Sarah's wagon train had no problems - The children that came with them were ____ Thomas - Bellezonia - Calvin - Sarah, Benjamin and Susannah. ___
Sarah was a washerwoman after they moved to town.
Sarah was a member of the First Christian Church in Knoxville, Marion county Iowa. This is the Church used for her funeral services.
Sarah "Bartlett" Wilson married & divorced Reuben Friermood Born in Kentucky died in 1867 Sarah and Reuben Friermood
Bellizonia Friermood Born June of 1863 Indiana - died August 29 1905 in Knoxville Iowa. She married December 24, 1881 in Muncie, Indiana
The following must have been copied from an old Obituary (James W. McKinstry 2003)
Sarah Jane Bartlett
The mother of Michael Calvin Wilson
Sarah was born in Virginia - June 20, 1822. She had been married three times. First to Michael L. Wilson who died in Indiana in 1863 - to that union there were 8 children born, three of whom are still living. ( At the time this was written James W. McKinstry 2003) Ben F. and Calvin of Knoxville and James W. who still reside in Indiana.
The second marriage was to Reuben Frymood or Friermood. To that union one daughter was born, "Belle", she married "Elijah Wilcutt" of Knoxville and died here August 29, 1905
Mr. Frymood mood the husband and father died in 1967.
The third marriage was to Othe G. Hendrix, February 9, 1866. To that union two children were born one son "Thomas", one daughter "Kathryn".
Besides the five living children of the first and third marriages, she leaves an aged husband. (Mr. Hendrix is almost 85 years old) Several grand children and great grand children to mourn her death.
Mrs. Hendrix was a member of the Christian Church and has always lived a consistent Christian life.
The funeral service was held at the Christian Church Wed. afternoon conducted by Evangelist Harris Burial at Graceland.
Covered Wagon to Iowa
Othe Hendrix and Sarah Friermood married twice. Possibly the first marriage was not legal because after Michael L. Wilson's death, Sarah married Reuben Friermood. Sarah had a daughter by Reuben Friermood by the name of Bellezonia.
In Bellezonia's Obituary it states that she has a full brother in Pennsylvania. I have told others to check when they find where Sarah & Reuben lived and married.
Sarah had eight children with Michael. When Sarah and Othe came to Iowa in a covered wagon the children that came with them were, Calvin, Sarah, Susannah, Benjamin, and the little boy Thomas of Sarah's and Othes. Also there was a new daughter Katherine that came with them.
Othe and Sarah came on the "High Road", and they had no problems, however some of Sarah's kinfolk, the Bartletts and the Flemings came on the "Lower Road". Indians attacked their wagon train and stole two of the Fleming Brothers and one eventfully got away. The younger son was never heard of again.
The above was written by Marguerite (Wilson) McKinstry. No doubt a word of mouth story passed down from one generation to the other.

Notes for MICHAEL L. WILSON:
L. thought to stand for Lauterbach
No picture of Michael L. Wilson.
Michael L. Wilson's father is not a proven fact. However my mother Marguerite (Wilson) McKinstry believed he could have possibly been Benjamin Wilson, Born in 1790 in VA. (Note a census of 1850)
