Oxley Johnson also hailed from Barren County, Kentucky. He was born there on Aug 26, 1835, the son of Oxley Johnson, Sr. and his wife, Martha Ann (Stallsworth) Johnson. Martha was born in Barren County on Apr 14, 1840, the daughter of Henry H. and Amanda (Staples) Stallsworth. Oxley and Martha were married in Barren County on March 18, 1858. Based on the date of their marriage, it appears that Oxley and Martha, along with other members of their respective families, did not leave Kentucky until a few years after members of the Chapman family.

In addition to having been born in Barren County, William Chapman and Oxley Johnson actually had quite a bit in common. They were about the same age, belonged to the same Odd Fellows lodge, their property adjoined one another north of Cainsville and both served with 23rd Missouri Infantry during the Civil War. In fact, their service records indicate they were even the same height and build. There was also a family connection. Their wives were first cousins through the Stallsworth family.

J. T. Crawley was born in Barren County, Ky. , May 22, 1843, and is a son of William and Mary (Stallsworth) Crawley, natives of Tennessee and Kentucky, and of English descent. The father was a farmer, and married in Kentucky, where he lived until 1855. In 1848 he lost his wife, by whom he had three children, viz. : Mary J., wife of Jesse Stallsworth, of Sherman County, Kas. ; Sarah F., wife of William Stallsworth, of Siskiyou County, Cal., and J. T. Crawley. Mr. Crawley afterward married Mrs. Baker, who had been married twice, and by her first husband had six children. By Mr. Crawley she had two, only one of whom survives - Samuel Crawley. Mr. Crawley immigrated to Harrison County, Mo., in 1855, and located near his son's present residence. He was a Democrat, and a Union man, and  during the Rebellion served about a year in the Missouri State Militia.
J. T. Crawley passed his boyhood in Kentucky, and at the age of eleven years accompanied his father to Harrison County, Mo., where he now owns 200 acres of good land, and is a well respected citizen. At the age of twenty he married Miss Mary Stallsworth, who was a member of the Christian Church, and with whom he lived happily about twenty years. She was the mother of seven children, five of whom are living: Lou Ann, wife of James Drurg; Oliver B., Delia M., John B. and Mary, all of whom live at home. Mr. Crawley remained a widower about two years, and then wedded Miss Nancy Bain, of Siskiyou County, Cal. , who has been his wife since December 31, 1886. Mr. Crawley is a Republican in politics, and his grandfather was a soldier in the Revolutionary War.  History of Harrison and Mercer Counties, Missouri 1888

In 1860 Harrison County, Missouri, Jessee Stallworth 26 and Mary I 18, with William A. 2. are in the William Crawley 37 family, with John F. Crawley 12 and Anne Brinton 52.

In 1850 Barren County a Mary Crawley 8 was with William 29 and Mary Crawley 28, and John 4.  So they probably are the same ones.

Jesse Stallsworth Enlisted in Company K, Iowa 11th Infantry Regiment on 25 Sep 1864.Mustered out on 02 Jun 1865 at Washington, DC.

In 1870 Polk County, Iowa Jessy is 36, Mary J. 27, William 12, John H. 9, Frank 7, Sherman 6, Boone 2, Emma 2, and Jessey is three months old.

There were two Jesse Stallsworth homesteading in western Kansas - so one of them - probably the one proving up in 1892 in 7S 42W Sherman County - is the father. 



Baxter Springs, KS., Dec. 21---A double murder is reported from a small place on the country road between here and Miami, O. T. An altercation arose between Bill Johnson and Frank Stallsworth. Stallsworth struck Johnson on the head with an iron bar, knocking him senseless. He continued to strike him as he lay upon the ground, when Harry Johnson, a boy of sixteen, took his brother's part, drawing a revolver and shooting Stallsworth in the head. The latter is dead and Bill Johnson is dying. Harry Johnson cannot be found.
(Plain Dealer ~ Cleveland, OH ~ December 22, 1894)

 William Stallsworth proved up land in 7S 42W in 1893 - that must be Jesse's son, that Ancestry trees say was born Jun 7, 1858,and died August 25, 1892 in Sherman County.  The homestead patent specifically states "Heirs of William Stallsworth."

Looking for info on great great grandfather Joseph Wachendorfer of Norton County, Kansas 1880-19__.  His children by first wife were Theresa, Philomina, Mary and Marie, and by second wife, Anthony, Katie, Fred, Francis and John L. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Philomina married Dow Stallsworth and Mary, married Dow's brother Sherman Stallsworth.  I'm willing to exchange info I have and photos if possible.

Wonder if the "Don" Stallsworth proving up a homestead in Logan County Kansas in 1912 is Dow - 13S 36W

1920 Washington County, Oklahoma has "Don Stallserrett" 47, Iowa, Minnie 35, Sadie M. 13, Joseph 11, Calvin 9, Wm. A. 6, Marybell 4, and Sylvester W. eighteen months - Minnie and the four oldest kids born in Kansas, Marybell adn Sylvester in Colorado.

In 1930 Yuma County Dow is farming, age 56, Iowa, first married at 33.  Minnie 34, Kansas. married at 22.  With them are David, 21, Kansas, Calvin 19, Kansas, William A. 16 Kansas, Maybel 13 Colorado, Woodrow 11 Colorado, Thomas 8,Colorado Winnie 5,  Colorado and Josephine 2 Colorado.

In 1940 Dow, widowed, no occupation, is by Cope, with Thomas, a laborer, Wynona, and Josephine.

Looks like David was in Denver in 1940 married to Mildred  --and they might be the ones David September 8, 1908 - Aug 13, 1973 and Mildred Rose July 12, 1917 - Feb 7, 2007 buried in Hempstead County, Arkansas.
