||Adria, first wife of Captain Thomas Harris of early Virginia, was baptized on 28 Aug1604 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, to parents Thomas Hoare and Julyann Tripplett. Adria Hoare arrived in Virginia in1621aboard the Marmaduke.|
In November 1621, the ship Marmaduke arrived at Jamestown, accompanied by the Warwick and Tyger. Among the Marmaduke?s passengers were "one widow and eleven maids" who had been sent over to provide wives for the male settlers. The records of the Virginia Company included a description of each maid. Here is number 10 on the Marmaduke:
"Audry Hoare Mayd aged 19: borne att Alesburie in Buckenham sheir, her ffather and mother are alive, her father a shoemaker, She hath two Sisters one whereof whose name is Joane Childe, dwelling in the Blackfryers downe in the Lane neer Catherne wheel Shee had a Brother Called Richard Apprentice to a fustian dresser, Shee can doe plaine work and black works and can make all manner of buttons; One Mr Thomas Beling a merchant is her first Cosen and one Mr George Blunden an upholsterer in Cornwall."
By this description, a picture of Adria's family emerges of middle-class tradesmen rather than "landed gentry." Her father was a shoemaker and at least one brother made cloth.
Adria married Thomas Harris shortly after her arrival. It seems more likely that they did not know each before her arrival, though at least one researcher speculates the Harris, Hoare, Gurgeny, Woodlieff, Drury families all knew each other in the area of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. If so, when Thomas Harris left for Virginia in 1611 (and likely left Buckingham earlier to prepare and get to the coast), Adria Hoare was only seven years old. It is doubtful he thought of her as a future wife.
About 1623, the Margaret & John landed at Jamestown. Onboard were children who were vagrants of London. Among them was the ten-year-old Elizabeth. Upon arriving in Jamestown, Elizabeth was indentured to Thomas and Adria Harris for 10 pounds. Elizabeth was to remain with the Harrises until she turned twenty-one or married. Upon her release, Elizabeth was to receive fifty acres of land.
The other young girl who was living with the Harrises in the two musters was named Anne Woodlase (or Woodleffe). It is known that Anne Woodliffe was related in some way to the Harrises. Anne?s grandfather Drew Woodliffe was of Aylesbury and Peterly, Buckinghamshire, Aylesbury being the same place Adria had grown up. A John Hoare swore a deposition on 4 April 1632. It might be possible that Anne Woodliffe's mother was a sister of this John Hoare.
In1625, a census was made of all the non-Indian inhabitants of Virginia. This tally showed that Thomas, Adria, Anne Woodliffe, and the servant Elizabeth were living at the Neck of Land. The census further reported that the Harrises had 7.5 bushels of corn, 1 bushel of peas, 11 pounds of gunpowder, 2 pounds of lead, 3 fixed pieces, 1 piece of armor, 1 coat of mail, 1 sword, 11 cattle, 30 poultry, 2 houses, and 1 boat. The census did not record that Adria was with child at the time, but soon thereafter, daughter Mary was born.
Back in England, shortly after learning of the birth of his granddaughter, Adria's father composed his will. The will of Thomas Hoare, cardwainer, of Aylesbury, was dated 31 January 1626/7 and was proved 5 April 1627. The will included the following bequest: "It'm I give to my daughter Awadrye xij d to be paid her when she doth demand it after my desease and also to her daughter xij d." The children of Thomas and Adria Harris were Mary Harris born about 1625 in Henrico Co VA and William Harris born 1629 in Henrico Co VA. In 1636, Thomas Harris recorded a land patent naming his current wife as Joane. Therefore, Adria Hoare Harris was dead by that date. The second wife of Thomas Harris was Joane Vincent, widow of his adjacent neighbor William Vincent.

|Denny, Alexander (I455)
||Alexander F. Denny|
Information about Alexander Finley Denny is sparse despite for a period of three years he was perhaps the most important man in Huntsville. He was born in the section of Howard County, Missouri that would become Randolph County in 1827 the son of David Rice Denny and Rebecca (Rowland) Denny. His father, a veteran of the War of 1812, was an early settler and arrived in Howard County with his father Alexander Denny, a veteran of the Revolutionary War, in 1818. David Rice Denny later served as a judge in Randolph County. Alexander attended Missouri University in Columbia, Missouri and graduated from the Law School of Harvard University in 1850. He then practiced law in Huntsville in partnership with Thomas B. Reed (who would later become a Missouri State Senator) until joining the militia in 1862. He married Martha McDowell Pitts December 5, 1855. She died March 15, 1857, and was buried in the Pitts Family Cemetery in Randolph County near Yates. He then married Sophia Elizabeth Pitts July 20, 1858. By Sophia he had Eleanor M. Denny, Younger Rice Denny, Rebecca Anna Denny (she died when she was three), George W. Denny (he died when he was four), Mary (Denny) Gordon, and Sophia Emily Denny who did not live long.
On August 21, 1862, after Missouri had been involved in the Civil War for nearly a year the Enrolled Missouri Militia was formed. Denny raised a company of men for the Union that became a part of the 46th Regiment, Enrolled Missouri Militia. He was originally Captain of Company C of this regiment, but by October 1, 1862 he held the rank of Major and was military commander of Huntsville. Charles F. Mayo was promoted from Second Lieutenant to Captain to take charge of Company C. On Dec. 22, 1862 Denny was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel. Sometime after February 3, 1863 he became a part of the 1st Provisional Regiment, Enrolled Missouri Militia. Unlike the Enrolled Missouri Militia, the Provisional Enrolled Militia was a full time force on active duty. Enrolled Missouri Militia often spent time garrisoning towns, were only called on when a need arose, and did not often see combat while the Provisional Enrolled Militia was considered a combat unit. During his time with the 1st Provisional Lt. Colonel Denny saw action against General Shelby of the Confederate Army from September 22 to October 26, 1863. At other times he was in the field combating guerrillas. He left active duty with this unit November 17, 1863. After the operations against General Shelby some of Lt. Colonel Denny's time was spent in administrative duties trying to maintain law and order, or simply managing the logistics of the war in the area. Such was the case when in November of 1863 when he asked of his commanding officers what to do with commissary stores (including 11 tons of beans) left in Mexico, Missouri with no soldiers there to eat them. Another time in November of 1863 while still a major he had to inquire into the release of two prisoners of war who had served under Colonel Poindexter of the Confederate Army. It had been promised they would be released, but had not appeared at their homes yet.
After leaving the 1st Provisional Regiment, Denny returned to the 46th Regiment, Enrolled Missouri Militia on April 21, 1864, and once again was in command of Huntsville. During this time he had at least three interactions with the Andersons. The first was a skirmish with Jim Anderson and about ten bushwhackers On August 7, 1864 Lt. Colonel Denny learned Jim Anderson was close by. With the 46th Regiment, Enrolled Missouri Militia and a detachment of the 9th Cavalry Missouri State Militia (unlike the 46th they were seasoned guerrilla fighters) he found him at Owen Bagby's farm about five miles south of Huntsville. Upon approaching Bagby's house the guerrillas began firing. Lt. Colonel Denny and his men then charged Anderson and his ten men at which point the bushwhackers fled. They continued to pursue them for some distance until they lost them in the brush. No Union troops were killed and one bushwhacker was. On July 31, 1864. William T. Anderson aka "Bloody Bill" sought to take Huntsville, by luring the militia outside the city. In order to do this he went to the home of Lt. Col. Alexander Denny's elderly father Judge David Denny. There he hung the old man three times from the gate post, and sent a servant into Huntsville to let Denny know he had his father. Lt. Col. Denny had to be held back from rushing out with men to his father's rescue as the townspeople suspected it was a setup for an ambush. Once Anderson realized the militia was not coming he left Denny's father for dead. According to local lore, Judge Denny crawled the two miles into town. Another significant interaction took place September 25, 1865 when Bill Anderson again tried to lure the militia out of Huntsville. He sent an ultimatum demanding the militia surrender the town that he had signed, "Col. Perkins." Denny's response was, "come in and take it." He had all four companies of the 46th Enrolled Missouri Militia stationed in the town, and both the college and courthouse were fortified. According to former guerrillas, Anderson wanted to try to take the town anyway stating these were only local militia. His joint commander, George Todd though, perhaps remembering the Battle of Fayette the day before said they should not. Anderson heeded Todd's advice and they road on. The note said there were 500 in their number, but Denny put the estimate at 250. Major Austin with his companies of guerrilla fighters arrived an hour after the bushwhackers left, but their horses were tired so they could not pursue. Denny could have encountered the Anderson's another time, but was away from Huntsville. Where Lt. Colonel Denny and the 42nd Enrolled Militia were during Bloody Bill Anderson's raid on Huntsville is unknown. One much later newspaper account said they had gone to Allen on a false report Bloody Bill Anderson was there. All that is known is Huntsville was not garrisoned at the time of the raid, and it is possible the militia was ordered elsewhere.
The rest of the war saw Lt. Colonel Denny only seeing actions with small bands of guerrillas, and continuing to do his administrative duties. Lt. Colonel Denny left active duty on March 14, 1865, and returned to his law practice. Sometime between 1875 and 1880 he left Huntsville and moved to Kansas City. His second wife Sophia died December 16, 1875 and is buried in the Huntsville City Cemetery. He is shown as practicing law in Kansas City in 1880. He died sometime in 1886 and is buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Kansas City next to his son Younger Rice Denny. For all his activity in Randolph County for most of his life there is relatively little written on Lt. Colonel Denny. Most of what exists are advertisements for his law firm in the local papers, and then his official record in the military. You would think there would be more. He was born in what would shortly become Randolph County into a family that had came here early. His father is listed in the histories as one of the earliest settlers in the county. He was an attorney for twelve years before the war in Huntsville in partnership with a man who become a State Senator. And he achieved the rank of Lt. Colonel and oversaw Huntsville's defenses for much of the war. However, this was a time of divided loyalties. Many Southern Sympathizers had Oaths of Allegiance extracted from them, even as their sons served for the South. Still others were conscripted into service against their will, and there are records to show Lt. Colonel Denny's 46th Regiment, Enrolled Missouri Militia was the destination of many of these drafted men in the county. It was also under his command of the defenses at Huntsville, Confederate Captain Samuel Delaney Washburn was executed at Huntsville. It could be resentments carried over from the war saw to it his name was not mentioned in the 1884 histories of the county. Later histories probably neglected to mention him because his story has been lost to time. It is a shame as no doubt he protected Huntsville from more raids by guerrillas intent on pillaging the town and deserved to be remembered.

William Brewster was born about 1566, the son of William Brewster. He was educated in both Greek and Latin and spent some time at Cambridge University, although he never completed a full degree. He went into the service of William Davison, then Secretary of State, while his father back home maintained a position as the postmaster of Scrooby, Nottinghamshire. Under Davison, Brewster first traveled to the Netherlands. After Davison's departure as Secretary of State, Brewster worked himself into his father's postmaster duties and maintained Scrooby Manor. Brewster was instrumental in establishing the small Separatist church with Richard Clyfton, and they often held their meetings in the Manor house. Brewster and the others were eventually found and forced out, and fleeing prosecution and persecution they headed to Amsterdam in 1608, and moving to Leiden, Holland in 1609. Brewster became the church's Elder, responsible for seeing that the congregation's members carried themselves properly, both helping and admonishing them when necessary.
In Leiden, Brewster working with Thomas Brewer became working a printing press and publishing religious books and pamphlets which were then illegally conveyed into England. Brewster also employed himself teaching University of Leiden students English. By 1618, the English authorities were onto him and his printing press, and had the Dutch authorities in pursuit of him. Thomas Brewer was arrested and held in the University of Leiden's prison, but Brewster managed to evade the authorities and went into hiding for a couple years.
When the Leiden church congregation decided to send the first wave to set up and establish a colony that everyone could eventually move to, their pastor John Robinson decided to remain behind in Leiden with the majority of the congregation, intending to come later. The smaller group that went on the Mayflower desired the next highest ranking church official, Elder Brewster, go with them; so he agreed. He brought his wife Mary and two youngest children, Love and Wrestling, on the Mayflower with him.
Brewster continued his work as Church Elder throughout his life at Plymouth Colony. His wife Mary died in 1627, and he never remarried. He lived to be nearly 80 years old, dying in 1644. Shortly after he died, William Bradford wrote a short but concise biography of Brewster, just a couple pages, in his history Of Plymouth Plantation.

Dr. J.T. Kennedy Dead
Prominent Citizen of This City Has Crossed Over to the Great Beyond
Dr. J.T. Kennedy died suddenly last night at 12 o'clock at the family residence on East Fourth street after a short illness. The immediate cause of his death is attributed to heart failure.
The funeral services will occur Monday morning at 9 o'clock. Following the services, interment will take place at Willow Wild Cemetery.
Dr. Kennedy's death comes as a shock to a multitude of friends in this city, as his illness was never considered serious, and part of his family were away visiting at the time of his death.
Dr. Kennedy was a native of Tennessee, having been born in Marshall County on April 12, 1840. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. D. Kennedy. He moved to Texas with his father's family in the year of 1846, settling near Paris, from which place he moved to Bonham. Dr. Kennedy was widely known as an able and successful practitioner. He received his medical education at Tulane University, New Orleans, La., graduating from that famous institution with high honors in the year 1867 and entering upon his professional career soon afterwards and for forty years he bore the medical banner in a brilliant and successful fight against disease and death, engraving his name in the hearts of countless numbers of good people who will ever hold his memory in deepest love and respect. On account of advancing age and failing health, Dr. Kennedy had for the past two or three years retired from active practice.
Although he was not identified with any church, Dr. Kennedy had expressed his belief in the faith of the Presbyterian doctrine. He was a Christian gentleman and had often been seen to enter his room for private worship.
Dr. Kennedy was a successful business man, having been first vice-president of the Fannin County National Bank for more than twenty-one years and an active member of the board of directors. He first assumed the duties of vice-president of the old Fannin County Bank in 1890 and when the bank was changed to the Fannin County National, he continued to serve in that capacity. In early life Dr. Kennedy met and married Miss Georgia Clinton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Clinton of Ladonia. The ceremony was performed at Ladonia in the year of 1873. Five children were born to bless this union, four of whom survive him.
With the passing of Dr. Kennedy, Bonham loses one of its most prominent citizens. He was a man of strong character and lofty ideals. He was a tower of strength to his many friends and his many deeds of kindness and good cheer will ever live as an enduring monument against the ravages of time in the memories of hundreds of friends.
He is survived by a wife and four children; Dr. A.B. Kennedy, of this city; Mrs. Gordon Matthews of Jonesboro, Ark., and Misses Stella and Mary Kennedy of this city.
Miss Mary Kennedy arrived this morning from Sherman where she received the news of her father's death, and Mrs. Matthews and Miss Stella Kennedy will arrive Sunday from Chicago.

Dr. J.T. Kennedy Buried This Morning
Funeral Services of Prominent Man Conducted This Morning at Nine O'clock
The funeral services of Dr. Jno. T. Kennedy were conducted at the family residence this morning at nine o'clock and followed by interment at the Willow Wild Cemetery. The services were conducted by Rev. Edgar W. Williams of the First Presbyterian Church and Rev. T.G. Davis of the First Baptist Church.
In honor of the memory of Dr. Kennedy all the drug stores of the city were closed. The floral offerings coming from the many people were magnificent testimonials of the love and respect in which the deceased was held. Among the offerings was that of a large and beautiful cross tendered by the druggists of the city. Another was an exquisitely designed wreath from the physicians. The Fannin County National Bank gave a large floral pillow and the Hospital board also gave a pillow.
A vast concourse of friends and loved ones were present at the funeral services to pay a last loving tribute to this good man, following the remains to the Willow Wild Cemetery, where the last sad rites were pronounced and the gathered throng spoke a grief-stricken farewell.
