NELSON AND ELIZABETH WHARTON


1.  WHARTON, Nelson - b. Abt. 1786, Virginia, d. Aft. 1870, m. Abt. 1821, Virginia, Mrs. Elizabeth Wharton, b. May 15, 1802, Virginia, d. Feb. 18, 1857, bur. Gregg Cemetery, Ohio Co., Wheeling, West Virginia. Elizabeth's headstone reads: Elizabeth Wharton - Wife of Nelson Wharton - b. May 15, 1802 - d. Feb. 18, 1857.

Note: I have very little information about Nelson and Elizabeth Wharton and their children. The GEDCOM file that I am using for some of the data shows that Nelson and Elizabeth had three other children; George, born Abt. 1832, William, born Abt. 1842, and Jacob, born Abt. 1844. If this were true these children would appear in the 1850 census and they do not.  These children's names and ages do not show up or fit into any of the census data that I have come across so far. It could be that these children died in infancy which tragically happened often during those times. Elizabeth died in 1857, and the 1860 census shows that Nelson and a Lucinda Wharton, who is probably Nelson's daughter, are living with Bayless and Sarah Wharton and their children.  Nelson and Lucinda are still found to be living with Bayless in the 1870 census as well.

Notes: Obituary from Knob Noster Gem, April 21, 1899:

DEATH: JOHNSON COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY - A SUDDEN DEATH - This community was startled Sunday morning on learning that Mrs. Bayless Wharton had been found dead in her bed. She had retired with her husband in usual health, although she had been suffering lately with rheumatism. About 2 o'clock, Mr. Wharton discovered that the room was getting cool and rose to get some extra covering. He noticed that his wife lay very still and investigated. He was horrified to find that she was dead. He woke the other members of the family and near neighbors were called. Mrs. Wharton, whose maiden name was Sarah Elizabeth Jones, was born in Belmont County, Ohio on May 19, 1839 and hence would have been 60 years old next month. She was married in October 1855 at Wheeling, West Virginia to Bayless Wharton and lived there until 1879 when they moved with eight children to Pettis county in this state. After a residence there of three years they moved to Knob Noster where they have since resided. Two children preceded her to the grave and seven with her aged companion remain to mourn her loss. The deceased was converted and joined the M.E. church when about fifteen years of age and was ever after a faithful Christian worker. For many years she was blind and only a few years ago had her sight almost completely restored, but through this affliction her faith remained steadfast. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Lehr assisted by Rev. J. S. Porter at the M. R. church Monday afternoon and the body was afterward laid to rest in the city cemetery.


Obituary from Knob Noster Gem, Sept, 11, 1903:

DEATH: DIED WHILE HE SLEPT - Bayless Wharton an old and honorable citizen of this community died at his home just south of this city some time during Monday night. He had been an invalid for the past six months or more and several times during the past spring and summer it was thought the end was near. Last Monday he appeared to be very much better than for some time. About ten o'clock that night the family retired with him sleeping quietly and no sign of approaching dissolution. About three o'clock Tuesday morning the condition of his body indicated that he had been dead for some time. Mr. Wharton was born in Rappahannock County, Virginia, Nov 5, 1822 He was married in October 1855 to Sarah O. Jones at Wheeling, West Virginia and resided there until 1879 when they moved with their eight children to Missouri where they have since resided. His wife died in 1899 under similar circumstances. The surviving children are Mrs. Cook, Mrs. Witter, Mrs. Joe Marshall, Mrs. Will Young, Homer, Harry, and Ivan Wharton. He was converted and joined the M.E. Church in early life and remained a true and faithful member until death. The funeral was preached by Rev. A.C. Boyd at the M.E. church at 10:30 o'clock Wednesday morning followed by interment in the family lot at the city cemetery.

Obituary from Knob Noster Gem, May 3, 1906:

DEATH: Johnson County Historical Society - The above named gentleman died at the home of his son, Lane Wharton, four miles south of Green Ridge, Tuesday morning. He was 70 years of age and had lived in Pettis county for 33 years.

2.  WHARTON, Lucinda -  b. Abt. 1829. Note: I can track a Lucinda from 1850, with Nelson and Elizabeth through 1870 census data along with Nelson who resided with Bayless in 1860 and 1870. In all three census her age fluctuates by a couple of years. I am dangerously assuming that this Lucinda is the daughter of Nelson and Elizabeth and the sister of Bayless. Over time maybe more information will become available to me.
