22. SARAH4 HANNAH ROBINSON (Boswell3, John2, Joseph1). She was born 20 January 1842, Owen County, Kentucky, and died 26 October 1929, at Habit, Daviess County, Kentucky. 130 Sarah Hannah married 30 June 1859, Daviess County, Kentucky, IVERSON JOSEPH WARE, born 2 June 1835, Shelby County, Kentucky, died 2 October 1900, Habit, Daviess County, Kentucky. Iverson was a son of John H. Ware and Mary Ann Martin. Iverson J. Ware was orphaned at the age of three years when his parents died in the autumn of 1838.131

Iverson Ware, husband of Sarah Hannah Robinson, joined the 12th Regiment of the Kentucky Cavalry (Union side in Civil War) on 15 August 1862, was mustered in as a Sergeant on 17 November of 1862, and served in Company E. He was discharged 9 June 1863 with a certificate of disability. His discharge certificate describes Iverson as being of fair complexion, 5 feet 9-1/2 inches tall, with dark eyes and light hair.132

Iverson and Sarah Hannah obtained a marriage license 29 June 1859 at Owensboro Kentucky, and were married at the home of her father by Isham R. Allen, a Baptist Minister, on 30 June 1859. Witnesses were George Triplett and B. Robinson.133

Iverson, age 25 and Sarah Hannah, age 19, were listed living with her parents, Boswell and Helena Robinson, in the 1860 federal census for Daviess County. By 1870, they were living in the Lowertown Precinct of Daviess County with their growing family and Sarah’s sister Amanda, who was listed as Jane N. M. Robinson, age 14. The 1880 federal census places the family in Uppertown Precinct. At the time of the 1880 census Amanda was living with her brother, John D. Robinson in Owensboro, but she is again living in the Habit community with her sister Sarah Ware and her family in the 1900 census and with Sarah, now a widow, in the 1910 and 1920 federal censuses. Sometime after the 1920 federal census was taken, Sarah Hannah Ware went to live with her daughter Birdie Horrell and died there of pneumonia in 1929.

Iverson J. and Sarah H. (Robinson) Ware and some children

Sarah Hannah Ware was a charter member of Zion Baptist Church, which was established 13 November 1859.134 This church, now gone, was located about two miles south of Owensboro, Kentucky, on the old Hartford Road (old US 231). After Iverson and Sarah Ware moved into the Habit community, she became a member of Bethabara Baptist Church.

An obituary for Sarah Hannah Ware appeared in the Owensboro Messenger for 27 October 1929:
Mrs. Sarah H. Ware
Mrs. Sarah H. Ware, 87 years old, died at 3 O’clock Saturday afternoon at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Albert Horrell near Habit in the county. Surviving are five sons, I. B. Ware, Whitesville; J. A. and J. W. Ware, Philpot; R. C. Ware, Louisville; and Elbert Ware, Habit; two daughters, Mrs. R. F. Crady, Owensboro, and Mrs. Horrell. Funeral services will be held at 2:30 O’clock this afternoon from the Bethabara Baptist Church, the Rev. E. L. Spivey, her former pastor in charge. Burial will be in the church cemetery, with the following serving as pallbearers: John Coots, J. W. Karn, J. W. Taylor, Emmitt Jones, Jake Tichenor, and Gus Harrison.

Another obituary, taken from a clipping (not newsprint) found with the papers of Birdie (Ware) Horrell, was written by Mrs. Otis Hazelrigg, a friend and neighbor:

Sarah Hannah Robinson Ware was born in Owen County, Ky., January 20, 1842, and died October 26, 1929, having lived eighty-seven years nine months and six days.
When she was eight years of age, her parents moved their home to Daviess County, where she has since lived.
She professed faith in Christ at the age of twelve years and united with old Zion Church on the Hartford Road, near Owensboro.
In 1859 she was married to Iverson Joseph Ware, who passed away October 2, 1900. To this union were born nine children, all of whom reached mature years, and seven of whom survive her. They were: Mrs. Annie Ware Hickman, deceased; Iverson B. Ware, of Whitesville; John A. Ware of Philpot: James W. Ware, of Philpot; Mrs. R. F. Crady, of Owensboro; Elias Martin Ware, deceased; Mrs. A. J. Harrell (sic), of Habit; Mr. Robin C. Ware, of Louisville and Elbert Ware of Habit. She is also survived by eighteen grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren.
She has enjoyed fellowship with Bethabara church for the past thirty-seven years, and has been an active member of the missionary society since its beginning. She has always been most generous and enthusiastic in supporting any effort to promote Kingdom work, and was especially sympathetic with all who were in need or distress. She made frequent, and substantial gifts to the Kentucky Baptist Children’s Home.
Until age dimmed her sight, her Bible was her constant companion, and she never failed to read her allotted portion of the Book each day. Between June 24, 1911, and August 10, 1928, she read the Old Testament thirty-one times; and between January 11, 1912 and March 17, 1929, she read the New Testament twenty-nine times. Truly could she say, “Thy word have I hid in my heart.”

Daviess County Townships

23. NANCY4 JONES ROBINSON (Boswell3, John2, Joseph1). She was born 26 February 1844, and died after 1880. Nancy Robinson and WILLIAM E. QUIRE were married 11 June 1861 by I. R. Allen at Boswell Robinson’s residence, Daviess County, Kentucky. Their marriage record states William E. Quire was 21 years of age, born Trumble County, Ohio; and Nancy was 17 years of age, born Owen County, Kentucky.136 Nancy and William Quire lived in the Spotsville area of Henderson County, Kentucky. Nancy Jones Robinson was a charter member of Zion Baptist Church, located near Owensboro, Kentucky, founded 13 November 1859.
Children of William E. and Nancy J. (Robinson) Quire:137

+   95 i. Mary5 Elizabeth Quire; born March, 1862; married John M. Williams.
  96 ii. Amelia Quire; born circa 1864.
  97 iii. George Quire; born circa 1866.
  98 iv. Lavina Quire; born circa 1869.
  NN v. Lorinda Quire; born circa 1871.
  99 vi. Maud Quire; born circa 1873.
  100 vii. Josiah Quire; born circa 1875.

Possibly Josiah Quire is not a son of William E. Quire, as I know him only from the 1880 federal census for Henderson County, Kentucky, where he is listed last in William E. Quire’s household as “son” after George Quire, age 78, “father,” and Marvin Quire, age 24, “son.” Relationships are supposed to be to the head of the household, which was William E. Quire, but census takers did not always follow the rules, resulting in uncertainty as to the identity of Marvin and Josiah Quire.

Henderson County townships

24. ELIJAH4 ALLEN ROBINSON (Boswell3, John2, Joseph1). He was born 21 August 1846, probably Owen County, Kentucky and died 25 February 1885, Shamrock, Callaway County, Missouri. Elijah married ALICE ANN JOHNSON, born 5 March 1855, Callaway County, Missouri, died 1 January 1939, Wellsville, Montgomery County, Missouri. Elijah and Alice Ann Robinson are buried in the Liberty Christian Church Cemetery, Shamrock, Missouri. A transcription of the stones of this cemetery lists: “Robinson, Elijah A., the husband of Alice A. Robinson, born 21 August 1846, died 25 February 1885, Aged 38 years, 6 months, 4 days.”138 After Elijah Robinson died, Alice married (second) Maston Brown Arthur and they had one child, Lottie Alice Arthur.139 Alice married (third) 15 October 1922, Foster H. Lewis. Alice Ann Johnson was a daughter of James Orville Johnson and Mary Elizabeth Arnold. James O. Johnson died during the Civil War. Mary (Arnold) Johnson married (second) 6 June 1867, James R. Covington. 140

After his parents, Boswell and Helena Robinson, died in 1863, Elijah possibly lived with or nearby to his sister Mildred and her husband, Lafayette Dabney, in Pike County, Illinois. The 1870 federal census for Pike County lists an Elijah Robinson, age 23, born Kentucky, living in Hadley township in the household of Richard Hays, age 62, and his family in dwelling number 130. Lafayette and Mildred Dabney were living also in Hadley township in dwelling number 124. Elijah and Mildred’s brother Grant Robinson, age 21, also lived in the same township in dwelling 123 in the household of James Davis, age 40, and his family. Grant and Elijah were listed as farmhands.
