    Marriage 1 John Curtis Bomar b: 20 JUL 1862 in Galesburg, Knox, IL
    • Married: 9 DEC 1882 in , Mills, IA
    • Divorced: BET 1904 AND 1923
    • Event: BET 1904 AND 1910 Separation
    • Note:
      There are two stories about the breakup of Maggie and John C. Bomar's marriage.
      Selma heard from her mother who was Eva Bomar's daughter, that John had just up and left Maggie, not that they had divorced. According to this story, Some time later, their son who took a position as postman was asked by a customer if he was related to old Mr. Bomar who lived in town. He didn't know, but was later surprised when he went to deliver a package and the door was answered by his father, who had a second family.

      Tom Wilbur's source (Barbara Barnes) says that John and Maggie divorced and he remarried twice. BB shows that John and Luella had three children, but Tom says the census record showing her as born about 1871 would make her too old to have children by John.

      Susan Kyle was born July 27, 1834 in Columbiana County, Ohio, and died April 14, 1915, at Plainview, Nebraska, aged 80 years, 8 monts, and 17 days.

      In October 1849 she married Thos. Slater and lived in Williams county, Ohio until 1872, when they moved to Adams county, Iowa. Here after a year Mr. Slater died April 14, 1873, just 42 years to the day before her death.

      To this union was born seven children, Mary E; Henry Wm; Samuel C; Joseph; Maggie; Nettie; and Lottie J. Of these Samuel died in infancy and Mary and Lottie in mature life.

      December 27, 1873, she was married to the Rev. Moses Miller Case, a minister of the Baptist church, and with him served pastorates in Iowa and Nebraska. To this union was born a boy, willie, who died in his third year.

      Mr. Case had a family of seven children, five of whom were at home when he married Mrs. Case and came to call her "mother" Rhoda J., Mary Elizabeth, Alice A. Nancy C. and Bertha R.

      In the spring of 1886 Mr. Case and his family came to Nebraska and located on a farm northwest of Plainview. About two years ago they at this point there is a big gap so I will resume as this does. About forty grandchildren survive and an equal number of great grandchildren.

      The grandchildren who live in this vicinity are Mrs. M C Barnes; Archie Bomar; Leroy Bomar, Mrs J A Barnes, Raymond Bomar, Mrs. Robert b/Pennington, and Theodore Bomar of Plainview and Mrs. Earnest Miller, Mrs. Clark Fulton, Otho Holmes, Clyde Holmes, Grace Holmes, Lawrence Holmes, Gilbert Holmes, Reba Holmes and Kenneth Holmes of Foster.

      the whole community joins with our brother Case in his sorrow, and pray the Lord's richest blessing upon himself and family at this hour.

      Text: 1 FIRST GENERATION

      1-1. SAMUEL SLATER1 was born October 11, 1798 in Virginia. He was the son of William Slater and Eleanor Claypool, who were married April 10, 1786. He was the grandson of Thomas Slater and Sarah Williams, who were married March 10, 1760. He was the great grandson of Elias Slater and Sarah Bussing, who were married August 30, 1718 in New Harlem, New York. He was the great great grandson of John Slater and Abiah Gillett, who were married July 15, 1669. John died May 13, 1713 and Abiah died November 21, 1716 in Simbury, Connecticut.
      Samuel came to Richland County, Ohio when he was young.

      The 1820 census does not list any Samuel Slaters in Ohio. The census was probably taken in the summer before he was married. There were four Slaters listed in Richland County: Isaac Slater in Washington Township, James Slater in Perry Township, John Slater in Orange Township (present-day Ashland County), and William Slater in Monroe Township. William was the only one having a male of Samuel's age living with him.

      Samuel married MARGARET WILSON on November 23, 1820 in Richland County, Ohio (marriage book 1, page 84; some county marriage indexes incorrectly say it was 1821. From Richland County records: "The state of Ohio, Richland County --- I certify that on the 23rd of November last I joined together in matrimony Samuel Slater and Margaret Wilson both of the County aforesaid. Given under my hand and head this 10th day of January AD 1821. Nicholas Flaharty").

      Margaret was born December 7, 1800 in Virginia. Margaret also came to Richland County when she was young. The 1820 census lists eight Wilson families in Richland County with a female of Margaret's age living with them. The three that lived closest to William Slater were William Wilson in Monroe Township and John Wilson and John Wilson Jr. in Worthington Township just to the south. John Wilson Sr. seems the most likely candidate for Margaret's father, since in the other two households Margaret would have had to be the lady of the house. John Wilson still lived in Worthington Township in the 1830 and 1840 censuses.

      In the 1830 census Samuel was listed living in Worthington Township, Richland County, Ohio with one male age 0-4 (John), two males age 5-9 (Sanford, William), one male age 30-39 (Samuel), two females age 0-4 (Eliza and Sarah), one female age 5-9 (Ellen), one female age 10-14 (Malinda), and one female age 30-39 (Margaret).

      They lived there until 1834, when they moved to Williams County, Ohio, where they lived the rest of their lives. They settled near Clarksville, a town that no longer exists, which was south of Edgerton in present-day Milford Township, Defiance County, along the St. Joseph River, a quarter mile south of the present county line, and two miles east of the Ohio-Indiana border. Samuel was the first settler of Milford Township. He was the first justice of the peace for St. Joseph Township, commissioned January 1, 1836 and sworn in February 22, 1836.

      Samuel made a government land purchase through the Fort Wayne, Indiana land office on November 30, 1836.

      In 1837 Samuel was listed in Milford Township on the Williams County property tax list.

      In the 1840 census Samuel was living in Milford Township, Williams County with three males age 0-4 (Luther, Lyman, and Leonard), two males age 5-9 (Thomas and Edward), one male age 10-14 (John), two males age 15-19 (Sanford, William), one male age 40-49 (Samuel), one female age 5-9 (Sarah), one female age 10-14 (Eliza), one female age 15-19 (Ellen), and one female age 30-39 (Margaret). Milford Township became a part of Defiance County when it was established on March 4, 1845 from parts of Williams, Henry, and Paulding Counties. Samuel was listed as a voter in Milford Township in October 1845.

      In the 1850 census (taken September 7th) Samuel was listed in St. Joseph Township, Williams County with his wife Margaret (age 51), and children John (age 22), Sarah (age 20), Thomas (age 18), Edward (age 16), Luther (age 14), Lyman (age 12), Leonard (age 11), Samuel (age 9), and Willson (age 4), and also his daughter Eliza Tucker (age 23) with her children John (age 3, listed as born in Virginia) and Ellen (age 8 months), and Susannah Slater (age 20).

      Samuel died October 1, 1850 near Clarksville, Ohio. Samuel's will was dated September 30, 1850 and accepted into probate on October 7, 1850 (Williams County Probate case no. 217). The will left everything to Margaret so long as she did not remarry. If she remarried, his estate was to be divided among his children. Leander C. Noble was appointed the executor. He was authorized to sell 80 acres of land -- 40 acres in the northwest quarter of the northeast quarter of section 33 and 40 acres adjoining it in the northeast quarter of the northwest quarter of section 33 (which in 1864 was owned by J. T. Russell).

      Leander Noble's expenses for administering the estate totaled $46.93: $3.38 for paying clerk "as per voucher", $10.00 for S. E. Beabesle(?), $1.50 to (?) to (?) will, $10.68 for 6% on $198, $1.50 for going to Bryan to sell land, $1.50 for going to Bryan to prove will, $1.50 for going to Bryan to pay taxes, $1.50 for notifying judges, $1.50 for going to Bryan twice, $1.37 for publishing the final account, $6.00 for probate judges fees, and $5.00 charges for special services as administrator.

      He paid $158.61 for debts owed to creditors: $2.00 for S. B. Gayalt(?), $8.07 for J. Avery, 75p???c for Asa Ackley, $28.80 for Daniel Farnham, $38.51 for Solomon Stough (Samuel's doctor), $31.39 for William Bratton, $5.21 for Michael Upp, $3.12 for Jacob Nieghart(?), $11.05 for the county treasurer, $11.04 for Case & Foster (lawyers), $5.00 for Norman Smith, $6.71 for "amount of hay notes retained," $27.62 "retained my account," $5.04 for G. C. Nobles account, 75p???c for William Street, $2.00 for A. W. Wilcox, and $6.19 for Jared Stoddard, administrator of the estate of Samuel Holton.

      The receipt for the money due to the Holton estate was dated October 14, 1839 and promised payment of $3.57 in nine months by either Samuel or Jared A. Ball to Jared Stoddard.

      The town of Edgerton in St. Joseph Township was platted in 1858.

      In the 1860 census Margaret was living in St. Joseph Township with sons Leonard, Samuel, Wilson, and with Rose Slater (age 10).

      In the 1870 census Margaret was 70 years old and living in St. Joseph Township with her grandson Samuel Slater (age 6, son of John).

      Margaret died August 9, 1877 near Clarksville, Ohio. The Williams County Probate Index lists Margaret's will, dated August 14, 1877 (case no. 1937).

      Samuel and Margaret are both buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in Edgerton. They share a stone with their son Lyman. Samuel's inscription is on the west side and gives his death date and age: "Died Oct. 1, 1850 Aged 51Y. 11M. 20D." and a quote: "There again I hope to meet you above no [one or two indistinct words] tears are shed." Margaret's inscription is on the north side and says "Wife of S. Slater Died Aug. 9, 1877 Aged 76Y. 9M. 2D."

      Subject: Thomas Slater's burial place

      I don't think I've noticed Thomas Slater's burial place mentioned in any of your web pages. I was at the Fort Wayne library a few days ago and I looked through the cemetery listings for Adams County, Iowa and found that he is buried in Stringtown Cemetery in Grant Township, in or near the town of Stringtown. I also looked at the marriage index and found no Slater marriages listed during the time that the family would have been living in Adams County.

      Jim,
      I have some odd and ends of information on John Curtis and Maggie. I will attempt to type them up here and work on a gedcom file for you later. I do not know who wrote the following but it is interesting to read.

      "John Curtis (Curt) Bomar was born 20 July 1862 in Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois and died 4 Jan 1949. Maggie and Curt were married 9 December 1882. After their marriage, they lived for several years in Glenwood, Mills County, Iowa where they had two children but moved to Pierce County, Nebraska before their third child was born.

      When Curt and Maggie lost little Nettie in 1893, the family moved by covered wagon to the Springfield, Missouri area, where they had two more children. [They] moved back to Plainview, Pierce County, Nebraska sometime before 1904.

      Curt, Maggie Bomar and their family lived on a farm for many years near Plainview, Pierce County, Nebraska. The children all learned the hard work of farming as well as how to keep a home and cook big meals.

      Following the birth of their last child, Maggie was sickly and not able to do the house work and care for the baby too. Eva's sister, Blanche Bomar had married Melzar Barnes several months before Ted was born which left most of the cooking and cleaning for Eva to do until she married in 1910. From then on it was up to Gertie, who was six years younger, to take over the house work.

      Sometime before 1910, Maggie and Curt separated and were eventually divorced. Maggie continued to live in the family home in Plainview until her death 6 Aug 1941. She was buried in the Old Cemetery in Plainview, Pierce County, Nebraska.

      After the divorce, the family did not see much of their father. Curt was married to VViola M. and had three boys.
      Ralph Harry Bomar
      Raymond Gen Bomar
      Fred Bomar born 1931/1932

      Curt and Viola lived in Norfolk, Madison County, Nebraska where Curt died on 4 January 1949. He was buried in the Prospect Hill Cemetery in Norfolk, Madison Co., Nebraska beside his second wife, Viola. Viola was born in 1890 and died 1974. No data has been received on their three sons.

      Mary Blanche Bomar was born on 3 July 1885 in Glenwood, Mills Co., Iowa and died 3 May 1975. She was married to Melzar Carlos BARNES, brother of Joseph Alonzo BARNES, on 6 january 1904. They had 14 children and lived most of their married life in Lincoln, [Lancaster Co.,] Nebraska where they are buried.

      Margaret Elizabeth BARNES born 12 November 1904, died 13 May 1976. Married to: Ranson Waldo Duston, Sr., born 14 April 1902, died 11 February 1974. Children: son, Ransom Waldo Duston, Jr and daughter, DArlene Duston, married to Harold Wheeler

      Gene BARNES
      Morris BARNES
      Dorothy June (Toots) BARNES
      CAlvin BARNES
      Stanley (Hipp) BARNES
      Baby son, died soon after birth

      That takes care of that piece of info. Marriage record for Curtis and Maggie is page number 594, Mills Co., Iowa, certificate 2397

      Here is another page you might be interested in...author unknown...Much of
      the Pierce County Court records were destroyed by fire and many of the birth,
      marriage and death records were lost. The following information was taken
      from an old family Bible record of Births and Death as well as newspaper
      articles and letters.
      Thomas SLATER born 26 Jan 1832, died 14 Apr 1873. Married Susan KILE/KYLE
      born 27 Jul 1834, died 14 Apr 1915. Seven children were born of this marriage
      Mary E. SLATER born 30 Aug 1853, died 1901-48 years old single
      Henry W. SLATER born 10 Fer 1855, died 1 Apr 1940 -m 6/17/1876 Mar Case
      Samuel C. SLATER,born 26 Jun 1859 died 25 Apr 1861
      Joseph SLATER born 25 Dec 1862
      Maggie SLATER born 7 Dec 1867, died 6 Aug 1941
      Nettie SLATER born 9 Sep 1870
      Lottie SLATER born 20 May 1873

      Thomas Slater died one month before the birth of (5/20/1873) Lottie, leaving Susan a widow with six living children to raise.

      Susan married (Adams Co., Iowa) Reverand M.M. CASE, born 1832 and died in 1915. No exact date is known for the marriage. To this union was born one son, Willie M. Case, born 22 Apr 1877 died 7 Jul 1879

      It is thought that the Slaters moved to Ohio from Penn. It is not know how many times or where the family moved but they eventually settled Pierce Co., Ne (1896). Burial of Susan Kile/Kyle Slater Case and Reverand M Case was in the Plainview Cemetery in a family plot. Before her death in 1915 at age 81, Susan lived for a time with her daughter, Maggie SLATER BOMAR and familyin Plainview, Pierce Co., NE

      There was a Jane Anderson, Box 538, Stryker, Ohio 43557 in Oct 1994 who must have done some research because in a letter she advises she that her husband took pictures of the graves in Maple Grove Cemeter of "Margaret SLater and Samuel and Ellen BARNES.

      I have more material on the Slaters but my eyes and fingers are coming up with the same words so it is time to call it quits for tonight. Will this be of any help to you.
