The Schoolers & the Harrisons

Friends these pages were scanned from an original document recorded by my great uncle Pierre all credit goes to him.
He also credits many before him on the last page of the document.  Please remember the problems with history, we like the good story and dont record the bad.  I will try to correct the mistakes as the come to light, but will not change the history.

The Schooler-Harrison Family of
England, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri and points West.

The Schooler family originated 1n England. The earliest record we have is from the London Book of Marriages: 1616 - 1625 which records the marriage of a Thomas Schooler and Hannah Nedds in St. Marys White Chaple, London. We do not know if this Thomas Schooler is our progenitor but it is an interesting note.
According to researcher L.V. Hanan Jr., the earliest Schooler found in America was William Schooler (1) whose will was probated in Caroline County, Virginia by his son Thomas Schooler (2) in 1728. This William was a native of London, England. His son Thomas in 1701 had been imported to Virginia by John Taliferro of Rappahannack, Essex County, Virginia. Thomas Schooler had taken up 590 acres of land in Spottsylvania County (Essex County until 1721) (Deed book 1728 - 1732 Page 91, Land office-Richmond, Virginia). This land was subsequently owned by John Schooler (:3), a son of the above Thomas. John was born in 1705 in Essex County. He married Martha Wharton. They were living in St. George Parish in 1763. We do not know Martha's parents, however, the deed books of this period record transactions of various Whartons.
In 1766 John and Martha Schooler deeded land to their son, Wharton Schooler (See Crozier's record of Spottsylvania County). Thomas Schooler (2) had four children:
Thomas (3) who had:
Thomas (4)
E 1 fy
Kesiah Schooler
William Schooler (3)
John Schooler (3)
In the index of Caroline County, Virginia 1746 1754 is listed the will of Thomas Schooler (2), presented by William Schooler, Kesiah Schooler and Thomas Schooler (3), February 1748 John Schooler (3) has no objection to probate. In Will book X pp. 44 45 King George County Virginia, is presented the will of Thomas Schooler (3). He names sons Thomas and Elfy and daughter Mary. I also appoint my two brothers, John and William H. Schooler, executors. Probated April 3, 1755.
Page 1

Generation III
John Schooler (3) (William (1) Thomas (2)) was born in 1705. He married Martha Wharton. He was a planter and businessman. They had 6 children:
l. Benjamin (4)
2. Wharton
3. John
4. Patsy or Martha
5. Samuel
6. William

We shall not try to list all of the Schoolers and their collateral lines. From this point the family increases and is widespread. We could count John's (3) grandchildren and great grandchildren in the dozens and do not have the names of many of them.

Generation IV
Benjamin (4) (John 3, Thomas 2, William 1) was born 1725 in Spottsylvania County, Virginia. His parents were John"and Martha Wharton Schooler. He served in the Revolutionary War. He married
Devine of Spottsylvania County. In 1789 they-settled in Bourbon County, Kentucky near Clinton ville. He died in 1795. His wife died the same year. Both were buried in a cemetery on a farm owned at that time by Mrs. Mattie Weathers.
Benjamin Schooler and his wife were the parents of four children:
Benjamin Franklin Schooler
Wharton Schooler (for his uncle, Wharton Schooler) .
William Schooler (5) M. Elizabeth Harrison
Salathial (Sarah-Sally) - M. Jones

Generation V.
William (5) was born in 1760 near Bowling Green, Virginia. He fought in the Revolution 1779 - 1780 as a Sergeant. Pension claim No. 46344. He lived at Bowling Green before moving to Brownsville, Fayette County, Pennsylvania and later to Kentucky. He married Elizabeth (Betty) Harrison - see Harrison family. Elizabeth died before 1808. His second wife was Juriah Ledwedge. William was the father of nine children:
Benjamin Harrison Schooler (6) b. 1780 - PA d. 1837 - Oh
John Schooler b. 1782 - PA d. 1839 - IL
Elizabeth Schooler b. 1784 - PA d. 1856 - KY
Charles Harrison Schooler b. - KY d. - IN
William Schooler b. 1790 - KY d. - IN
Richard Schooler b. 1791 - KY d. 1840-50 - IA
Lucie Schooler
Caroline Schooler (her mother was Juriah)
Robert D. Schooler (son of Juriah, second wife of William). Robert married Betsy Schooler, daughter of Wharton Schooler. She was his first cousin.
We have gone to some length to list the available details of various members of this family to illustrate the large families and the spread of the Schooler name, together with their relatives. The early Schoolers lived near Bowling Green, Virginia and we now find that a Benjamin Franklin Schooler (a cousin) who settled in Garrard County, Kentucky called his farm Bowling Green.

The Harrison Family
The Harrison family history is interesting and is exceptionally well documented throughout colonial and national history. With this in mind, we shall not spend much space on dates and places.
In the earliest records of the Harrisons they are said to have come into England with the Danish Sea Kings under Canute about 1000 A.D. Many of this name settled in Northumberland Durham and Yorkshire. Probably the most famous of the Harrisons was Thomas (the Regicide) a major general in Cromwell's army. He was among the signers of the death warrant for King Charles I of England who was executed in 1649. Eleven years later, Charles II regained the throne and together with other rebels Thomas was hung at Charing Cross, London on October 13, 1660. Though a man of note, he left no record of his children in his will, mentioning only his wife Catherine. Considering the circumstances this was probably done for their safety. It is believed that one or more of his sons emigrated to Virginia.
In Virginia there were three distinct families of Harrisons. There is a possibility that these three lines are related to each other. Colonial records mention many other Harrisons that ~uo not seem to be related or directly connected to these three families.
Page 3

1. The James River Line
Benjamin Harrison, clerk of the Jamestown colony, (1590 - 1648) was founder of this line. There is some claim that his son Benjamin II (1645 - 1713) who married Hanna Harrison (daughter of Gen. Thomas, the Regicide) but this is in dispute. There is no dispute in the record that the fifth generation from Benjamin I known as Benjamin V (1726 - 1791) was the signer of the Declaration of Independence and Governor of Virginia 1781-1784. His son William Henry Harrison (b. 1773 d. 1841) was territorial Governor of Indiana 1800, General of the Northwest Army in the War of 1812 and became ninth President of the United States in 1841. His grandson Benjamin (1833 - 1901) was the eighth generation in this line from the Jamestown Benjamin and became the 23rd President of the United States in 1889. Although we are not closely connected to this James River Line, their prominent place in the development of our country is worthy of note.
2. The "Blue Ridge, Virginia Harrisons"
A belief in a Connection to the Regicide has persistently lingered in this family although 1n an indefinite way.
3. The "Northern Neck" Harrisons make no claim to the Regicide. It is this line in which we are interested.
Anthony Harrison (a cousin to Benjamin Harrison, clerk of Jamestown Council) was in Virginia by 1650. His background was over in Cambridge, England. Anthony's son Richard patented lands July 5, 1664.
Richard's son Andrew (1) married Eleanor He died
and his will was Probated 1718.
Andrew (2) married Elizabeth Battaile. They had four children:
Battaile Harrison - M Frances? - He died 1776
Lawrence Harrison - M Catherine_- he died 1772 more later.
Charles Harrison - B 1717 - M Sarah Smithers, they lived in Orange County, Virginia.
John Harrison M. Sarah Daniel - 11 children Died in 1762. Charles and Sarah Smithers Harrison had six children: John, Elizabeth (Betty), Nicholas and Robert, Sarah and Charles.
After 1760, the Virginia Council offered strong inducements to get people to settle in the new county of Augusta. Many families flocked to these new lands. Among them were Harrisons, Schoolers, Vance, Crawford,
Page 4

Springer and other friends and relatives. After Settling in what was thought to be Augusta County, Virginia, it transpired that they were in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. As population increased, counties were divided and divided again so that some people found themselves in four different counties without ever leaving the farm. This branch of the Harrison family was involved as officers in the Revolution and the Ohio Indian wars following.
About 1785, many of these related families moved from Pennsylvania to Kentucky. They located in Cynthania, Harrison County. They went down the Ohio River to Limestone (Maysville) and along the Licking River to Cynthania and Paris. Among them were the Schoolers. They were probably drawn to Kentucky by the land grants given for war service. William Schooler (5) received Bounty Warrant No. 6499 for land. (Columbus, Ohio Survey Book Vol. 0 page 83). As previously mentioned, Elizabeth Harrison was the wife of William Schooler. That she was a sister of Major John Harrison is proven by: "John Harrison and wife Mary Ann (Johnston) Harrison of the county of Jefferson, Kentucky, on the first part, and William Schooler and Betty his wife (which Betty is sister of said John) and Elizabeth Schooler, a daughter of said William and Betty Schooler, of the county of Harrison County, Kentucky, on the other part, grant land on waters of Mill Creek, 104 acres, being a part of an entry made in the name of Benjamin Johnston." (Cynthania Court Records, Book I page 799, November 28, 1799.) D.A.R. No. 282,657 is traced from this line. The above excerpt illustrates the records and sources used to establish family relationships.
Generation VI Schooler
Benjamin Harrison Schooler (6) was the son of William (5) and Elizabeth Harrison Schooler. He was born 1780 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. He moved with the family to Cynthania, Kentucky. He married Margaret Jones of Cynthania on June 25, 1802. We have the following records of the rest of the family:
John Schooler (6) - M Jane Newell - Nov. 2, 1809 Harrison County, Kentucky
Elizabeth Schooler (6) - M Lewis Jones - Nov. 26, 1801 Harrison County, Kentucky William Schooler (6) - M Elizabeth Stump - Jan. 3, 1816 Harrison County, Kentucky Richard Schooler (6) - M Leah Scott - March 28, 1816 Harrison County, Kentucky Charles Harrison Schooler (6) - M Tampa Jones
Feb. 1809, Harrison County, Kentucky

Robert D. Schooler - M Betty Schooler (cousin) - 1809 Harrison County, Kentucky
Lucie Schooler - M Levi Rockwell - March 2, 1826 Clark County, Kentucky
Caroline Schooler - M Thomas Holloway - May 4, 1818 Clark County, Kentucky
The last three were from Juriah (Ledwedge) Schooler, the second wife of William Schooler.
Benjamin H. (6) and his wife Margaret (Jones) had six children. The first, William, was born August 6, 1802 in Harrison county Kentucky. Benjamin moved to Logan County, Ohio in 1804. He was married three times and fathered twelve children. His second wife was Sarah Davis m. September 10, 1814 in Champaign County, Ohio. His third wife was Margaret Cox m. July 30, 1830 in Logan County, Ohio. We have no record of children from the last two marriages. He served in the war of 1812 as a captain. He died in Logan County, Ohio in 1837. At least two of his brothers moved to Ohio at later dates as did various friends and relatives. Both John and Charles Schooler followed their brother to Ohio in 1810. Both served in the war of 1812.

Generation VII
John Schooler (7) the son of Benjamin H (6) and Margaret (Jones) Schooler (from an old family record) was born in Logan County, Ohio, September 29, 1805. He married Elizabeth Ann Randall on May 15, 1828 in Shelby County, Ohio. Elizabeth Ann (Randall) Schooler was born on July 7, 1809 in Virginia. Her parents were Abraham and Margaret Randall. Both were born in Virginia. They moved 'to Shelby County, Ohio sometime in the 1820's. In 1850, Abraham Randall lost his land by endorsing a note for a friend. The family then moved to Mercer County, Missouri. Their daughter Elizabeth Schooler and her family had moved to Missouri in 1839.
Abraham Randall was buried in the Pine Cemetery in Mercer County, October 2, 1854. Margaret Randall is also buried there.
John (7) and Elizabeth Randall Schooler were the parents of 10 children, so we come to the 8th generation:
William - b. March 1829 - Logan County, Ohio
Abraham - b 1830 - Logan County, Ohio
Margaret - b. August 2, 1833 - Logan County, Ohio
John - b. October 21, 1837 - Shelby County, Ohio
Page 6

5. Benjamin Harrison - b. September 25, 1839 - Shelby County, Ohio
Job Art - b. August 1, 1842
Milton E. - b. May 12, 1844 - Grundy County, Missouri
8. Sarah Jane - b. February 4, 1848 - Mercer County, Missouri
9. Mary - b. February 18, 1853 - Mercer County, Missouri
10. Martha - b. February 18, 1853 - Mercer County, Missouri

Our family record states that the John Schooler (7) family moved from Ohio to Mercer County in 1839. However, Mercer County was not created from Grundy County until 1845. This necessitates the study of records in both counties. Some records were transferred late, as the Grundy County census of 1850 still lists this family although they were living at Mill Grove in Mercer County. Job Art was born August 1, 1842 but both the 1850 and 1860 censuses list his birthplace as Ohio. The family was in Missouri in 1839. Did Elizabeth go back to Ohio for this birth? We doubt it, so there is probably an error in recording.
The 1850 Grundy County census lists the following:
Schooler, John 44 M. Farmer Born Ohio
Elizabeth 41 F Wife VA
John (Jr) 12 M Ohio
Benjamin 10 M Ohio
Job Art 8 M Ohio
Milton E. 6'M MO
Sara Jane 3 F MO
Malinda Brock 21 F Can't read KY
or write
Note that Abe, William and Margaret were not listed. They were "on their own." Both William and Margaret were married. They married Keith cousins December 9, 1849. Abe was not married until April 25, 1852. William was 20 years of age and his sister Margaret was sixteen at the time of their marriage. Who was Malinda Brock? We do not know. She may have been a relative or merely a "hired girl" in the household at census time. We do find that a Joseph Brock was given as security for Wharton Schooler to act as administrator Leanna Schooler deceased -- name given as Leanna Wharton. will book E page 476 of Spottsylvania County, Virginia July 18, 1872. We mention the above as an indication of how families seemed to stay together over several generations, regardless of their many moves to different states.

We have gained twin sisters. This family settled at Mill Grove in Mercer County. The records show that John Schooer Sr. on May 7, 1855 purchased 40 acres of land for the total sum of $29.00. This was the SW 1/4 of the NW 1/4 of Section 33 Twp 64 Range 24. It is interesting to note that by an act of Congress that land along streams was listed as overflow or swamp land and given to the states to reclaim. (An Act applicable to Arkansas and other states).
This was before the Homestead Act (1862). The state of Missouri gave such lands to the counties for disposal. Knowing people, our guess is that any land in "shooting distance" of a stream became overflow land, hence claimed by the counties for disposal. Final title for this 40 acres was granted November 10, 1859.
The record also shows that John Schooler purchased on February 20, 1857 40 acres -- the NW 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 26 Twp 64 Range 24. This land was about two miles from the earlier purchase. This land was purchased under an act of Congress passed April 24, 1820 relating to the sale of Public Lands. this land was paid for and the Patent granted on February 20, 1857. The patent was signed by President Franklin Pierce.
It is of interest that on February 3, 1857 John and Elizabeth Ann Schooler sold a strip of land off the east side of this same 40 acres. No acreage is given. It merely states that it begins at a large branch (creek) and runs with the meander of the creek north and south. The price was $15.00 total. This land was sold to William Minter. We found nothing to indicate the ultimate disposal of the above two pieces of land. We have a copy of the Patent from the Federal Land Office for the second 40 acres. We also have a copy of the document from Mercer County covering the sale of the first 40 acres. Also, a copy of the land transfer to William Minter. This is an interesting paper. It
Page 8

is beautifully written 1nlonghand by John D. Randall, Justice of the Peace. He goes to some length to explain how he examined Elizabeth Ann, separate and apart from her husband to see if she executed the said instrument freely, voluntarily and without compulsion or undue influence of her husband, etc.
Why all the fuss and bother? Well, the dear lady could not read.
The next chapter relates to the death of John Schooler in December, 1875. Jasper L. Newton was the administrator of the ~ustate. John J. Stanley and Alvin Marsh were his appraisers and witnesses. The administrator's inventory was dated December 9, 1875. It lists real estate as all of block 6 in the town of Mill Grove. It also lists all other chattels down to and including the kitchen stove, kettles, etc. The total of the appraisement was $156.81 which included $19.81 cash and a two year-old note from son, Milton, for $20.00 plus $5.65 accrued interest. Cash money was seemingly a scarce commodity in those days. This was not much of an estate for a lifetime of work. John Schooler was buried in the Coon Cemetery at
Mill Grove, Mercer County, Missouri.
Elizabeth Ann (Randall) Schooler died May 15, 1887 at Mill Grove and was buried in the Coon cemetery at the side of her husband. Her name appears on the Mercer County Census of 1880 with her age given as 70 years. We have spent considerable time with this family because much dat~u was available and it gives a better understanding of our family. We have more information as to marriage of this generation. We list these to tie many families together. This is still the eighth generation.
William married Sophie Keith December 9, 1849.
She was the daughter of Philip and Abbie (White) Keith.
Abe married Rachel Ann King April 25, 1852. He died in 1862. .
Margaret married Nathan Keith December 9, 1949.
He was the son of William and Elizabeth (Ashley) Keith.
John married Sarah J. Carr.
Benjamin H. married Sarah Ann Clemens June 1, 1861.
Job Art married Martha E. Goe, a descendant of
Dan Boone.
Milton married Cl~ura Ann King (see later). Sarah Jane married Joel Hammond.
Mary married Scott Oyler.
Martha married Tom King.
In his application of letters of administration on
Page 9

the Estate of John Schooler dated December 8, 1875, Mr. Newton lists the following heirs:
Elizabeth A. Schooler Widow Mercer Co, MO
William Schooler Son Grundy Co, MO
John Schooler    Son Grundy Co, MO
Milton Schooler Son Mercer Co
Job Schooler Son Mercer Co
B. H. Schooler Son Mercer Co
Martha King Daughter Mercer Co
Mary Oiler Daughter Harrison Co
Rachel (Ruth or Nuth) Daughter Grundy Co
Minor heirs of Sara Jane Hammond Deceased. These
were grandchildren. Grundy Co.
Neither son Abe nor daughter Margaret was listed. We know that Abe died in 1862 and we believe that the Rachel listed was his widow. We have found no reason why Margaret was not included. She lived until 1915.
There is one item for which we have found no explanation. John Schooler's estate was entered for Probate in 1875 but 18 years later in August, 1893, Benjamin H. Schooler applies for letters of Administrat~uon on the Estate of John Schooler, deceased and lists the following heirs:
Elizabeth A. Schooler      Widow Deceased
William Schooler     Grundy MO Co.
Margaret Keith (formerly Schooler) Trenton, MO
Ben H. Schooler                    Browning, MO
Job Schooler     Mill Grove, MO
Martha King (formerly Schooler)    near Lineville, IA
Mary Oiler (formerly Schooler)     Oklahoma Territory

Perhaps one explanation for this delayed probate would be that it was not complete until after the death of the widow or it may have been necessary to' clear title to some piece of land.
Generation VIII
Milton E. Schooler (8) was the sixth son of John and Elizabeth Ann (Randall) Schooler. He was born May 12, 1844 in Grundy County, Missouri. Evidently Milton grew up on the farm in Nercer County and in Mill Grove. At age 20 he entered the Union Army during the Civil War. We have this record:
"Schooler, Hilton - Army - Company A44 MlO Inf, State
Militia Volunteers. Organized August and September, 1864, mustered out at St. Louis, Missouri August 15, 1865. Company A Washington Township."
The above information is from "Centennial History of Grundy County 1939."
Milton E. Schooler married Clora Ann King February 14, 1867 in Grundy County. Clora Ann (or Clorinda) was the daughter of Joshua and
Page 10

Lucinda (White) King. Joshua Has born in a log cabin in Fayette County, Kentucky in 1810. Lucinda White was born in Fayette County in 1812, We do not have the wedding date. A note of interest:
Ulysses Schooler maintained that his grandfather's name was Hart and that he had been adopted by the Kings. We have no further knowledge of this. The Kings moved to Pickaway, Ohio in 1838 and to Grundy County in 1£51. Joshua and, presu~uably, Lucinda are buried in a pasture on the old King place, 106 acres that he homesteaded near Spickerd, Missouri.
Clora Ann (often called Clorinda on records) King was born March 20, 1851 in Grundy County, Missouri. She was married a month before her sixteenth birthday. Early marriage ~uas quite common at that time.
Nine children were
Ulysses Wilson Schooler 11-4-1867 - 3-21-1955
Etta Bell 5-7-1869
Perry David 7-27-1870 - 10-17-94
Sally Jane      10-5-1871 - 12-28-1871
George Edward 1-19-1873 - 5-22-1956
Allie 11-1-1874 - 3-2-1875
Ellie 11-1-1874 - 5-24-1875
Essie Louise    10-10-1876 -6-2-1963
Minnie3-4-1879  - 7-17-1879
to this union (or ten).

Did Minnie have a twin sister? Ulysses, the oldest child, has always maintained that he had two sets of twin sisters. If so, t.hen Minnie may have had a twin who died at birth and records were forgotten.
This seems to have been a hard luck family. They lost four
(or five) infant daughters. The mother, Clora Ann, died July 7, 1879 age 28 years, 3 months and 17 days. She had born" nine (or ten) children in twelve and one half years. We do not know the cause of
.. her death but note that the youngest died ten days after her mother at age 1 year, 4 months, and 13 days.
Tragedy still stalked this family. The father, Milton Schooler, was killed three years to the day after his wife' s death on July 7, 1882. Note the excerpt from "Grundy County, A History" by James Everett Ford, page 196;
"As a result of a quarrel over the terms of rental, Millar Adams killed Milton Schooler, who had rented a farm from him, in July 1882. Adams was sentenced to two years in the penitentiary, The killing was done with a knife."
Five children were orphaned, ranging in age from five years to fourteen years. Milton had married "Suley" Brittain April 19, 1880 in Grundy County. The name should be Ursula O. Brittain.

The 1870 Mercer
County census shows:

Schooler Milton 24 mFarmer Born Missouri
Clora A,            19 F Wife Born Missouri
Ulysses   2 mSon Born Missouri
Hettie                 1 F Dau (Should be Etta) Born Missouri

The census enumerators were sometimes careless, The 1880 census of Franklin Twp, Grundy County, town of Spickard, Hissouri has the following:
N, Schooler 35 M Farmer Born t-1issouri
U,0, Schooler 37 F Wife (Both listed as widowed) Indiana
U,W Schooler 12 Son (Ulysses Wilson) Missouri
E,B, Schooler 11 Daughter (Etta Bell) Missouri
P, D, Schooler 10 Son (Perry David) Missouri
G,E, Schooler 8 Son (George Edward) Missouri
E,L, Schooler 4 Daughter (Essie Louise) Missouri

Evidently, time was too pressing for the enumerator to spell out the names. We have filled them in, It is things like this that makes searching of records difficult at times,
Clara Ann and Hilton Schooler were both buried in the Hyatt cemetery northeast of Spickard, as also were their infant daughters,
Ursula 0, (Brittain) Schooler was buried in the Bethel cemetery in Grundy County, She was born December 2, 1843 and died november 8, 1907,
After the death of milton, the children were scattered Among relatives, Essie Louise lived with her grandparents, Joshua and Lucinda King, until her sister, Etta Bell, married Jasper Melton. She then lived with them for a time at Mt, Moriah, Harrison County, Missouri,
Some of the close relatives deserve further mention, Jasper King, the younger brother of Clora Ann married Ida [{yatt, Their daughter, Nora King, (later rlinter) Has very close to her cousLt, ::::ssie Louise Schooler, They spent much time together As Children and corresponded for most of their lives. They always signed their letters "Your Cousin Sister."
