A Message to Readers
From Barbara Inman Beall

Many of you probably wondered where I have been and what I have been doing. The semester finally ended in early May, but then I was under the gun to revise my dissertation proposal, which I have to defend in Pennsylvania later this summer. In addition, my research has been almost exclusively tied to my Spence family line since January. Whenever I did get a spare moment, I headed to the Denver Public Library, where I remained until the last bus headed north to Broomfield. In doing so, I made a major breakthrough on my Spence family line and consequently, have started writing a book: From Scotland to Missouri: The Ancestors and Descendants of the Jasper County Spence Families. My goal is to put out a book a year. Hopefully, my next focus will be Inman.

Since I have such a problem answering personal correspondence and since the waiting time between issues of the journal seem long, I have devised something new which I hope will help fill in the gaps. It is an Inman discussion list on the Internet, and it is open to all who are researching the Inman surname. There is no charge on my part for the service. Those of you who are not on computer could gain access through a FreeNet service in your area.

To subscribe to the list, send a message to

and put SUBSCRIBE in the subject line.

Hope you continue, and I do hope you will subscribe to the discussion list on the Internet.

A Grogan/Inman Problem

Just the other day, I received a query on-line. I am publishing it with the writer's permission. I had put out an announcement on Tennessee Roots, North & South Carolina Roots, and Mid-Plains Roots on the Internet concerning my forthcoming Spence book. The writer saw my maiden name and sent this message, hoping that someone could provide an answer:

When I first started researching, I thought Grogan was going to be my easiest family to trace but I found it more difficult than I thought. I have sent for a copy of my grandfather's death certificate, and I am hoping it will have his mother's first name on it. That will help with the Inman side and hopefully we will be able to make a connection.
I also heard from someone in Texas County, Missouri who told me where to write for information on the Grogans there. I hope I can find T. J. (Jeff) Grogan''s parents. I did find a Thomas Jefferson Grogan at the family History Center at the LDS Church, but I'm not sure it is the right one or if his name is Thomas Jefferson.
About Inman as a bushwhacker: it could be my great grandmother's family. J. T. Jeff Grogan was married twice. His first marriage may have been to Cynthia Stephens 07 Mar 1872 in Clay County, Tennessee, but I haven't confirmed that. He had two children from that first marriage--John Tom and Martha, I believe. His second marriage was to _______ Inman, and they had four children, including my grandfather, born in 1881, Charles Henry Grogan in Grogan, Cass Township, Texas County, Missouri. So he could have married the Inman there in Texas County. At least that makes the family history a little exciting.
An earlier message from this correspondence reads:
I don't have any Spence families, but in reading your query, I noticed your maiden name and thought since you were a genealogist as well as an Inman, I might hit it lucky. Please forgive the length of this query.
My great-grandfather, Cleo Patrick 'Tobe" Aaron (b. 1863 AL), married my great-grandmother, Margaret Wood Tomlinson in 1888 in Dunklin County, Missouri. The Aaron family were making their way to Texas and stopped in Dunklin county long enough "to make a crop" and--as it turned out--long enough for Tobe to meet and marry Margaret. The marriage didn't last. Shortly after my grandmother was born (December 1889), the Aarons were divorced. Tobe moved on to northeastern Texas to rejoin his family. In October 1896 in Fannin County, Texas he married Lula Morris. He died there in 1959. Except for his name, I knew nothing about Cleo Patrick "Tobe" Aaron until I started searching two years ago. I found him in the Mormon Ancestral File. Three marriages were listed for him--the two I have mentioned AND a marriage to someone named D. INMAN. There is absolutely no other information. I located Tobe's present-day family and asked them. Apparently Tobe had kept his marriages to my great-grandmother and to this D. Inman a secret for many years. And because his wife was so upset when she found out, his other marriages were never discussed.
Now his granddaughter is as curious as I am about who D. Inman is. My guess is that she was living either in Texas or in the Indian Territory, although it is also possible that she lived in Colorado (one of Tobe's brothers had checked out the Mormon settlement in Manassa in the early 1890s). The marriage would have taken place between 1890 and 1896.

If anyone knows anything about D. Inman, please contact this publication directly, or

I will explain the John Inman--bushwhacker question since it was an issue that I originally raised.

Last fall, I was doing a considerable amount of research concerning the border wars between Missouri and Kansas during the Civil War. I ran across an account (source misplaced at the moment) describing the execution of a "notorious" bushwhacker named John Inman by Union forces in Texas County, Missouri. As I recall, John Inman and another bushwhacker were first captured by the Union Army and were being held prisoner. Inman and the other bushwhacker attempted to escape and were killed while running. Since discovering that information, I have been trying to discover the identity of John Inman and his possible connection to the Tennessee Inman families, from whom I descend. Texas County, Missouri is some distance from Jasper County, but location does not decide relationship as far as families are concerned.

A trip to the local library disclosed a John Inman living in Texas County on the 1850 Census. However, I don't know whether this was the same John Inman--alleged bushwhacker. So I placed a query on the Internet, and the response was really surprising--not concerning John Inman, but another relative. I heard from a man who had done a considerable amount of research concerning Missouri bushwhackers who rode with Quantrill, Bloody Bill Anderson, and some of the others. He said that he would check his research and get back in touch with me. A few days later, he sent me a complete listing of all the known bushwhackers in Missouri, including the leader under whom they served. As I recall, his comment went something like this: "Couldn't find your John Inman, but I'm sure you'll find another name you mentioned (chuckle)." The other name: James Bunch--my ggg uncle who married Milly Catherine Spence, my ggg aunt, in Jasper County, Missouri. Allegedly, he rode with Quantrill. I knew that James Bunch was head of a Confederate Home Guard Unit, and I remember my grandfather describing him as "a Confederate guerilla fighter," but until I saw this list, I didn't know how extensively he was involved. No doubt, that is the reason the Bunch family and my ggg grandmother, Elizabeth Inman Spence, fled Missouri after the Civil War and went down into Texas.

I am still in a quandary about John Inman, however. As I recall, the source suggested that many men were falsely accused of bushwhacking as an excuse for killing them simply because their sympathies remained with the South. This may have been true of John Inman.

Hopefully, someone will have the answer to this question.

A Carpenter-Inman Question

A few days ago, I received another query on Mid-Plains Roots:

I am researching Carpenters from perhaps Illinois. William M. Carpenter married a Catherine (Edith) around 1856 in Illinois. They had a number of children, one being Erminda Carpenter b. 1859 in Illinois. I have a Frances Carpenter in Wisconsin in 1865 who married Charles Sellen in Blackhawk County, Iowa February 23, 1888. My family is the Sellen line, but if you would like to discuss or share, please contact me.

The location of the Carpenters in this query with Lucy Carpenter, wife of Loren Inman, is too close to be ignored. Lucy Carpenter, alleged daughter of Harvey Carpenter and Esther Sabin, was born in Connecticut in 1812. She married Loren Inman, (1810-1878) in Strafford, Vermont on July 16, 1835. In 1836, the Inmans moved to Sugar Grove Township, Kane County, Illinois. In 1858, they relocated to Marble Rock, Floyd County, Iowa. Blackhawk County is not that distant from Floyd.

The name "William" is common among the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Carpenter families. William Carpenter founded the Rehobeth, Massachusetts line of the family; another William Carpenter founded the Rhode Island branch of the family. They were cousins. Another Carpenter line descends from Samuel Carpenter, a Quaker who established the Pennsylvania line.

Loren Inman and his wife Lucy had a number of children:

  1. Harvey Carpenter Inman, born in Kane County, Illinois August 9, 1836; died October 12, 1883. Harvey is buried in Marble Rock, Iowa. He married Sarah E. McCollom May 18, 1867. She was from Amesville, Ohio and was born December 31, 1838. She died August 25, 1924. Harvey had no children; however, his wife raised Harry Inman. Harry was a farmer, owning a farm of 160 acres one and one half miles from Marble Rock. He also taught several terms of school, was secretary of the school board for about fourteen years, was township assessor for a number of yeas, and held the office of county surveyor for five years. Harvey platted the West Side Cemetery in 1882. He owned a half interest in the Aureola grist Mill for about three and one half years and took part in operating the mill. At the time of his death, Harvey also owned a six-acre lot in Union township.
  2. Joseph L. Inman, who enlisted in Co. H. 1st Battalion, 13th Regiment, U.S. Infantry regulars, at Dubuque, Iowa, 13 June 1862. Joseph died in the army hospital at Memphis, Tennessee January 6, 1863 at the age of 22.
  3. Alonzo Inman (my great grandfather), who was born June 24 1842.
  4. Ephraim Inman, born 1 Sept 1846.
  5. Charlotte Marinda Inman, born 5 August 1849.
  6. Dora Ellen Inman, born December 25, 1852(1)

When I return to the library this week, I will check the Carpenter books to see whether I can find the William Carpenter mentioned in this query and will report on my findings in the next issue.

The Settlement in Rock County, Wisconsin
(From an old Ledger)

Since the last article mentioned a Carpenter from Wisconsin, who relocated to Illinois, I found an interesting Inman article concerning Wisconsin. I obtained a copy of this article last year at the local Family History Center in a ledger entitled the Inmans and Those Related. I have no idea who wrote the article, but a statement "copied by Reva Inman Nov 2, 1956" appears on the page just before it. Since the Inmans and Carpenters intermarried several times in New England prior to their removal to the West, I thought the article contains some interesting information.

To obtain exact and reliable information concerning events which have occurred within a comparatively recent period, while many of those are yet living whose individual efforts and achievements form the subject of the inquiry would appear to be a task presenting but few difficulties.
But busy men, whose thoughts and energies have been devoted mainly, if not exclusively, to the securing of homes and fortunes in a new country, naturally have little time to record the incidents and events which made up the history of their daily lives; nor are they inclined to regard them as other than trivial and unimportant, and therefore too insignificant to be perpetuated. From this disposition to regard most occurrences as trifling in themselves, combined with want of leisure or inclination to keep a daily record of what they thought, felt, hoped, did or suffered, it follows that the record of early settlements contains but scant material from which to obtain facts for the pages of history. Patient industry and careful research, however, rarely fail to discover forgotten letters and old books of account, or to refresh the memories of early settlers regarding the events of long ago, which, being compared, weighed and sifted, supply the laborious searches for truth with the information necessary for this purpose.
The difficulties encountered in preparing a history of any particular county are precisely of the character just indicated, and they are surmounted only by patient and persistent research and investigation.
The close of the Black Hawk War and the return home of the soldiers by whose fortitude and gallantry the Sac Chief had been defeated and his band dispersed, called the attention of the country to the extraordinary natural advantages of the Rock River Valley. Next to the narration of the exploits of himself and comrades in the field, the returned volunteer found his greatest delight in glowing accounts of the beautiful, flower-decked prairies, rich with nutritious grasses from three to six feet in height, and dotted at intervals with burr oak openings, and of the swift and sparkling streams, winding like silver threads between their verdue-clad banks.
According to these accounts, the Rock River country was a veritable modern Eden. Such enthusiasm naturally communicated itself to those listened to the narrations, many of whom made up their minds to dispose of their then possessions as speedily as possible, and secure for themselves a home in this region, which was, seemingly, awaiting the occupation of the industrious and the enterprising.
On the 14th of July, 1835, John Inman, of Lucerne County, Pennsylvania and William Holmes, of Ohio, started from Milwaukee "to spy out the land" in this much vaunted valley. Procuring a couple of Indian ponies upon which to pack their provisions, and armed with the trusty rifle, without which no one in the Northwest traveled in those days, they set out upon their explorations.
Two days march from Milwaukee brought them to Fort Atkinson, then just evacuated by the officer for whom it was named and his command where they went into camp for the night. The next day they went west and south, and camped at night at the mouth of the Yahara (Catfish) River. When morning came, they found that their ponies had taken French leave, and that they must either pack their own traps, or leave them behind.
This was an inconvenience, to be sure, but not a disaster to hardy pioneers; so they shouldered their luggage and continued their explorations, following the course of the river southward till they reached point now occupied by the city of Janesville, where they camped on the point of the bluff on the Racine road. From this point they saw Rock Prairie stretching away in distance to the east and south, till the verdant plain mingled with the blue of the horizon.
They saw before them an ocean of waving grass, and blooming flowers, and realized the idea of having found the real Canaan--the real paradise of the world.
Continuing their journey to the eastward, they came within half a mile of a beautiful grove, in which they found unmistakable indications of its having been occupied not long before as an Indian encampment, to which they gave the name of Black Hawk Grove, which it still bears. Shortly after this, they discovered their ponies, and, having secured them, set out upon their return to Milwaukee, entirely satisfied with their investigations, and fully determined to make this magnificent and fertile prairie their home. They reached Milwaukee on the 23rd of July, having been absent ten days.
In all their travels, they had found but one white family--that of Mr. McMillan, who resided where Waukesha now stands.
"On the 15th day of Nov. 1835, John Inman, 2nd Cap. To Irving's father and from East, PA, Thomas Holmes, William Holmes, Joshua Holmes, Milo Jones and Geo. Follmer started from Milwaukee with an ox team and wagon, the latter containing provisions, tools and other necessaries and, on the 18th day of the same month, arrived opposite the 'big rock'." The biting frosts of winter were at hand; no time was to be lost. The banks of the river on either side were lined with oaks, maples and ash. There was no scarcity of building material. The woodman's ax soon resounded from the forest, and within a week a log house graced the hillside. This was the first settlement in Rock County, Wisconsin.
A little over a month after the arrival of John Inman and his company upon Rock River, where they began the first settlement in Rock County, there arrived out, Samuel St. John and his wife--the last mentioned the first white woman settler of the county. On the 15 of Jan., 1836, Dr. James Heath and wife joined the little colony. All wintered in the log cabin together. Settlements soon followed in other parts of the county. Particular accounts of these will hereafter be given; for the present, the reader's attention will be invited to personal narratives of pioneers and others, to be followed by a description of pioneer life as it stands revealed upon the pages of history.
Said John Inman was cousin to......

This particular narrative ends abruptly here, but is followed by another article:

The Migration of John Inman

During the month of July in the year 1835 a John Inman from Lucerne Co., Penn. And another man from Ohio, in exploring the wild west when Wisconsin was young, left Milwaukee on a couple of Indian ponies with several days' provisions, including the trusty rifle, which no one traveled without in those days.
Going south and west, and camping where night overtook them, they woke the third morning to find the ponies were gone. Rather than leave their belongings behind, they shouldered their luggage and went on following the Catfish River to a point about 85 miles from Milwaukee, camping on a bluff near a trail which leads eastward to Racine.
From this bluff they could see prairie land reaching far to the east and south. To them it looked like an ocean of waiving grass and blooming flowers, and thought they had surely found the paradice [sic] of the world.
Journeying [sic] a few miles eastward they came to a grove which showed indications of having been an Indian camping ground and they called it Black Hawk Grove. Here they found and secured the ponies again and they returned to Milwaukee. Being satisfied with their investigation of the country, they were determined to make their future home in the prairie land. During their 10 days trip they found but one white family.
The following November, Inman, with the company of 5 other men made his 2nd trip from Milwaukee. During an ox team and wagon loaded with provisions, tools and other necessaries, arriving 3 days later on the bluff opposite the Big Rock in the middle of Rock River, which place now is in the city of Janesville, Wisconsin.
The first important business of the pioneers was to build a small log house, and until this was done they had to camp on the ground or in their wagon.
As biting frosts of winter were at hand no time was to be lost, so the prospect of a house and also a home, gave them courage and so the woodman's ax resounded from the forest. Within a week, their house was ready to move into.
A month later (middle of Dec.) Came a man and his wife and 2 children, who joined them in the cabin. She was the first white woman settler in Rock County, Wisconsin.
Then in Jan. 1836 came another man & wife and they joined the colony making family of 12, all wintered in the cabin together.
Tuesday Oct 23, 1956. Irving and I stopped at South Elkhorn cemetery East of Milledgeville, Illinois, where Irving's grandfather and many other relatives are buried. I copied names and dates as follows:

The above Inman history was copied from tombstones in 1956 when Irving and I visited cemetery where his grandfather John Edward Inman and his relatives are buried. It was the return trip from Wisconsin, the last trip we made together.

The balance of the ledger consists of names, notes and charts pertaining to various Inman lines. Apparently, it resulted from an Inman family reunion in Indiana in 1916.

Ahab Inman of North Carolina
(Also from the old ledger)

The descendants of Ahab Inman of North Carolina apparently moved to Indiana, site of the Inman family reunion in 1916. The following history was listed on one of the pages of the old ledger mentioned in the previous entry. Credit is given as follows: "Compiled Aug 27, 1916 near Harford City, Blackford Co., Indiana, data given by Miss Reva Inman, dau. of Isaac."
