Book Title: A History Of Jessamine County, Kentucky

Early Settlers on Jessamine Creek.

  The early settlers on Jessamine creek were mostly German Protestants who came
in large part from Pennsylvania and Maryland, with a few from Virginia. The
following letter written by Dr. Peter Trisler to Rev. David Zeisberger in 1794,
from Jessamine county, will prove valuable, historically:

                         Jessamine Creek, September 4, 1794
Dear David:    I am exceedingly sorry that you did not come along with your
father during his recent visit to this delightful country. The sun shines
brighter in this country, and the skies are more blue, than the damp, moist
atmosphere at the mouth of the Cuyahoga. A good school is needed among us, and I
invite you once more to leave that inhospitable country of savages and cold winds.
                             Faithfully yours,
                                      PETER TRISLER.

  From most reliable records Rev. Jacob Rhorer was the founder of the first
Moravian church on Jessamine creek, in 1794, and the building was used as a
Moravian church by the Rhorer family up to near the beginning of the Civil War.

  The following are the names of the early settlers who were of German
parentage and belonged to the.Moravian Church, or "United Brethren": Arnspigers,
Alcorns, Cormans, Bowmans, Bruners, Earthenhousers, Easleys, Funks, Fraziers,
Grows, Gilmans, Goforths, Hiffners, Howsers, Harbaughs, Horines, Ritters, Rices,
Masners, Zikes, Ketrons, Waggamans, Warmslys, Overstreets, Quests, Yosts,
Hoovers, Trislers, Turks, Turpins, Shreves, Veatches, Vantresses, Naves, Cogars,
Crows, Copleys, Cawbys, and Schmidts. Nearly all of these names were in the list
of German settlers in the western part of Jessamine county, who were largely the
followers of John Huss. They were men of great common sense, good judgment,
honesty, a high sense of morality, and great lovers of freedom, and their
descendants still reside in that part of Jessamine county which their ancestors
in the early history of the state settled.

  In 1884 John Cawby had a Bible which was printed at Wittenberg in 1440. This
Bible was brought from Germany to Maryland in 1780, by Peter Trisler, who, in
1794, settled in the present limits of Jessamine county, where he died April 22,
1821. This old Bible was the property of Mrs. Nancy Horine, who was a
grandaughter of Dr. Trisler.

  Dr. Peter Trisler was born in Wittenberg, Germany, in 1745. He came to
Hagerstown, Maryland, when a very young man, and settled on Jessamine creek in
1791. When he came from Germany he brought the old Bible above referred to, and
this book contained records of a large number of the families above named. From
this stock German settlers have gone throughout the West and South, and they
usually became men of thrift, energy, character and brains. Some now in Illinois
and many in Missouri have carried away with them the splendid qualities of these
early settlers, and in their new homes have shown the sterling qualities of
their ancestors, who did so much to create and promote the best interests of the
new state they helped to found in the then wilderness of Kentucky.

  Names of those who settled in other parts of Jessamine from 1782 to the close
of the century:

Watson, Sr.; Jacob Sedowski, afterward removed to Bourbon county; James

Al, the book of Jessamine County marriages records the marriage you're interested in although the bride is listed as Sarah Cawway.  Bondsman was A. H. Myers and consent was given by Susanah Cawway, mother of the bride.  I only have the book, not the marriage license itself.  Also, I live a long distance from Jessamine co so I'm unable to go to the court house to see the actual license.  Sorry.  Gary

This regiment was organized at Indianapolis, and was mustered
in on Aug. 16, 1861, for three years. It left the state the next
day for St. Louis and accompanied Fremont into Missouri.

On its return it moved with Pope's army to the Blackwater and
aided in the capture of a large number of prisoners. In Feb.
1862, it marched to Cross Hollow, Ark., and in an engagement
near Leesville in March its brigade saved another from
capture, the 18th recapturing the guns of the Peoria
artillery. The regiment participated in the advance at
Elkhorn Tavern, when the enemy was forced from the field, and
then marched for Helena, Ark., being engaged at Cotton Plant
early in July and reaching Helena on the 13th.

On Oct. 11, it moved for southeastern Missouri, where it
passed the winter, and was transferred to Grant's army in the
spring of 1863, participating in the engagement at Grand Gulf.
At Port Gibson it captured a stand of colors and some
artillery; was engaged at Champion's Hill, Black River bridge,
and at Vicksburg from May 19 until its fall, being in the
assault on the enemy's works and the first to carry its colors
to the parapet.

It was in the Bayou Teche campaign and other operations in
Louisiana during the fall, and on Nov. 12 embarked for Texas.
It was engaged at Mustang Island, and in the attack on Fort
Esperanza. It reenlisted at Indianola in Jan. 1864 and was
furloughed home, stopping at Baton Rouge to aid in repelling a
force about to attack the garrison there.

It was ordered to Virginia in July, joined Gen. Butler's
forces at Burmuda Hundred, and was engaged in several severe
skirmishes at Deep Bottom. It was then transferred to
Washington and assigned to the 2nd division 19th corps, which
joined Sheridan's army in Virginia.

It participated in the battle of the Opequan losing 54 killed
and wounded; aided in the defeat of Early at Fisher's Hill,
fought at Cedar Creek, where it lost 51 killed and wounded and
35 prisoners.

Took transports for Savannah GA, Jan. 6, 1865, and was engaged
for three months in building fortifications. It was detached
May 3, and sent to Augusta, GA, raising the Stars and Stripes
over the arsenal for the first time since the beginning of the
war. It returned to Savannah on June 7, was sent to the
southern part of the state, and was mustered out Aug. 28,
1865.

Its original strength was 1,056. Gain by recruits, 140;
reenlistments, 359; total, 1,555. Loss by death, 180;
desertion, 53; unaccounted for, 156.

FORT ESPERANZA. Fort Esperanza, a Civil War earthwork fortification on the eastern shore of Matagorda Island, was constructed to guard Cavallo Pass , the entry to Matagorda Bay. The fort was also known as Fort DeBray, in honor of Col. Xavier Blanchard DeBray , commander of the Sub-Military District of Houston. Building of the fort began in late December 1861, when it was determined that the location of Fort Washington, a small fort put up near the lighthouse in 1842–43 on the extreme southeast corner of Matagorda Island, was too exposed. Confederate colonel R. R. Garland chose a new position farther up the pass, at about the halfway point of the island's frontage on the pass, and ordered Capt. Dan Shea to begin the construction. Additional fortifications were added by Maj. Caleb G. Forshey in February 1862. The fort, itself armed with nine guns including eight twenty-four-pounders and one 128-pounder, was out of range of the guns of large federal vessels in the Gulf but had the same command of the channel as the older Fort Washington. The Confederate assessment was that the shallow water, only ten feet deep, on the bar would prevent vessels larger than gunboats from attempting to enter the bay. This proved correct, but the new fort still did not stop the Union navy from forcing the pass.

On October 25, 1862, less than a month after capturing Galveston, William B. Renshaw, captain of the USS Westfield , sailed past Fort Esperanza. Much impressed by the federals' gunnery, the defenders of the fort retreated to Indianola before they could be cut off. The Union forces seized Indianola after a brief battle. Port Lavaca was extensively bombarded, but a Confederate battery of two guns put up a determined resistance. In early November the Union fleet withdrew from Matagorda Bay, and since they had no ground forces to leave behind to secure their gains, the Confederates reoccupied Indianola and Fort Esperanza.

After the Union debacle in the battle of Sabine Pass in September 1863, the federal invasion plans for Texas shifted south. The Rio Grande valley was invaded in early November. Corpus Christi and Aransas Pass fell in the middle of the month. Union troops advanced up St. Joseph's Island. Their crossing to Matagorda Island was unsuccessfully challenged, and a battle took place on November 23 at Cedar Bayou, which separates the two islands. After Union forces under Gen. T. E. G. Ransom reached Fort Esperanza on November 27 and dug in, a two-day battle followed. On the night of November 29 the Confederates, outnumbered and outflanked, evacuated the fort after spiking the guns, firing their stores, and blowing up their magazines. The fort was occupied and repaired by the Union forces, who used it as their base of operations for further campaigns in the area. In the spring of 1864 the Union troops were withdrawn from Matagorda Bay to participate in the proposed invasion of Texas from northeast Louisiana. After the last of the federals left Matagorda Island on June 15, Fort Esperanza was reoccupied by the Confederates and held until the end of the war.

The eastern walls of the fort were destroyed as the shoreline was eroded by a storm in 1868. By 1878 the rest of the nine-foot-high, twenty-foot-thick, turf-covered walls had eroded away, but the shore was accreting again. The outlying emplacements and rifle pits can still be traced in some areas.

The Capture of Fort Esperanza-Official Report of Col. Washburne.; HEADQUARTERS FIRST DIVISION, FIRST BRIGADE FIFTEENTH ARMY CORPS, SALURIA, Texas,
Thursday, Dec. 3, 1863.

MAJOR: I beg leave to submit the following report of the part taken by the First Brigade, First Division Fifteenth army Corps, in the reduction of Fort Esperanza, on Matagorda Island.

At midnight, Nov. 27, I had succeeded, after much difficulty, in getting the whole of my force across Cedar Bayon, upon the island, and marched immediately to join Gen. RANSOM, some eight miles in advance. After a few hours' rest we moved up the island, making a very hard march through the sand of 23 miles; we camped in the night and moved in the morning for this place, my brigade, by your order, moving along the beach.

About 12 o'clock we had advanced to the light-house, and in close proximity to the enemy's works. The main portion of the command was halted, and by your order I proceeded, with one company from each of my regiments, under the command of Capt. IRA MOORE, Thirty-third Illinois infantry, a most excellent officer, supported by the Thirty-third Illinois infantry, to reconnoitre and endeavor to find the strength and position of the enemy. Moving cautiously up the beach, we soon drove in the enemy's pickets, and our advance was safely lodged in a range of sand hills within three hundred yards of the outer work of the enemy -- a heavy earthwork extending from the bay to a lagoon running from the bay on the mainland side of the island. The work was regularly laid out, about fifteen feet in thickness, and from ten to fifteen feet in height. The enemy now opened upon us from Fort Esperanza with his 125-pounder and 24-pounders, throwing shells, but with little or no effect. Having found out the position and apparent strength of the enemy, by your order I withdrew my advance.

During, the night, a heavy "norther" coming on, we were unable to do much on the 28th. During the night of the 28th, Captain MCALLISTEK, of the Eighth Indiana, and Captain HULL of the Ninety-ninth Illinois, both of whom had had considerable experience in that line in the rear of Vicksburgn, with a fatigue party from each of the regiments in the brigade, under cover of the darkness, dug a rifle-pit from the sand-hills on the beach, held by us the first day, and running parallel with the enemy's works, 210 yards, in length, sufficient to cover a regiment. Sergeant GOODLANDER, of Company F. Eighth Indiana, with a small detail from the different regiments, was ordered to move at early dawn in advance of our rifle pit; and endeavor to gain a position on the outer edge of the enemy's works. The Eighth Indiana was also moved out, and ordered to lay down in open prairie, in order to take advantage of any lodgment our advance might make. Capt. HULL, Ninety-ninth Illinois, volunteered, and accompanied the advance. The morning was bitterly cold, and our men suffered severely. Our advance moved up slowly and cautiously, took position on the outside of the work, (the inside being controlled by the enemy in the sand hills between the work and the main tort,) driving in a small picket force on the inside.

The force for protection of the work having been driven by the weather to the sand-hills, endeavored to rally and drive our men back, but in vain. The Eighth Indiana was immediately sent forward in small detachments, so as to avoid the fire of the heavy guns of the fort, and gained a safe footing in our rifle-pits and on the enemy's works. Finding ourselves more successful than I had dared to hope. I returned to the main portion of my brigade and immediately sent Col. LIPPINCOTT his regiment to the front, with instructions to take command of the forces in front, and to advance as far as condence would allow, and to get, if possible, a position where our artillery might be made effective, Col. LIPPINCOTT moved promptly with his command, and I soon had the pleasure of hearing from him that he had secured a good position for our artillery.

Adjutant W.W. ZENER, of the Eighteenth Indians now [???] staff was ordered in [???] up two pieces of the Seventh Michigan battery, under command of Lieut. STILLMAN, which be accomplished with dispatch. The pieces were brought np and placed in battery under a heavy fire from the fort -- fortunately not very accurate; and we soon had the pleasure of seeing our shells dropping in the enemy's stronghold, and driving them from their runs. Col. LIPPINCOTT had very judiciously disposed, of the two regiments, and had previously to the arrival of the artillery advanced several companies into the sand hills in our front, driving back the enemy nearer his main work. I also ordered possession to be taken of an old work several hundred yards in our front, and to the left and rear of the tort, which was gallantly done by Capt. MCALLISTER, Eighth Indiana, with his company. This enabled us to move our advance on the right nearer the fort.
In the meantime I had ordered Lieut.-Col. CHARLES, Eighteenth Indiana, to move his regiment to the support of the Eighth Indiana and Thirty third Illinois, in doing which he passed under a heavy fire from the fort, but fortunately for him the enemy threw nothing but solid shot, which from their size were easily avoided, and he gained his position with the loss of but one man. Night coming on, found four companies of the Eighth Indiana and five companies of the Thirty-third Illinois in the sand hills near the fort, (725 yards, as shown by measurement;) two companies of the Eighth Indiana held the old work to our front. The balance of these three regiments held the outside of the new work. The men, although the night was raw and cold, remained upon the field and in their position. A fatigue party was detailed from the reserve regiments and proceeded to move the four pieces of the Seventh Michigan battery to the work occupied by our troops and by filling the ditch placed them in a fine position. I also ordered a portion of the Eighteenth Indiana, under Capt. LOWES, to reinforce Capt. MCALLISTER, as I believed that to be an important point. The Ninety-ninth Illinois and Twenty-third Iowa, who were held in reserve, were to move at daylight to our position, while a general advance of the whole brigade was to take place. These arrangements were hardly completed, when, about 12 o'clock, an explosion of gunpowder in the fort warned us that the enemy were on the move. I immediately ordered an advance of the skirmishers, and found that the enemy had fled, leaving behind him his stores and ammunition, and the personal baggage of the officers. They had, however, piled a large quantity of cotton around the different magazines, after having scattered gunpowder in different places. The advance pushed on to the ferry, but were toollate; the enemy had cut the rope, allowing the floating bridge to swing around upon the shore. They had also attempted to destroy it by piling cotton upon it and firing it: but our men were too close and put out the fire. Six of the eight men left by the enemy to fire the trains were captured at daylight. I moved a small force across to McHenry Island, and took possession of a small earthwork containing one 24-pounder, considerable ammunition and some garrison equipage. In Fort Esperanza we found one 128-pounder Columbian and seven 24-pounder siege guns. Two of the magazines were saved. Considerable camp and garrison equipage was in the fort, but owing to the danger from the explosions we failed to save it. My total loss was one man killed and ten wounded, among the latter Lieut. GEO. H. FIFER, Acting Aid-de-Camp, a gallant and brave soldier, who fell severely wounded during our first reconnaissance. My officers and men behaved gallantly, showing that they had lost none of that coolness and bravery evinced by them upon the battle-fields of Pea Ridge, Frederickton, Port Hudson, Champion Hills, Black River Bridge, Vicksburgh and Jackson. Col. LIPPINCOTT, of the Thirty-third Illinois, rendered me great assistance in the advance upon the enemy's works, and displayed both courage and judgment.

Maj. KINNEY, of the Eighth Indiana, though lately promoted to the position, proved by his courage and coolness that he was well worthy of the same.
Lieut.-Col. CHARLES, of the Eighteenth Indiana, brought his regiment in fine style and good order, through a heavy fire from the fort to the support of the two advance regiments.

Col. BAILEY, of the Ninety-ninth Illinois, and Col. GLASGOW, of the Twenty-third Iowa, who were held in reserve, were both anxious to be removed to the iront, and, more by accident than anything else, were thrown into the reserve. Both regiments, however, had already established their reputations as veterans, on the well-fought fields of Mississippi.

I am greatly indebted to Capt. MCALLISTER, Eighth Indiana, and Capt. HULL, Ninety-ninth Illinois, for their assistance in the digging and laying out of the rifle-pits and placing of the battery.

Lieut. STILLMAN, commanding the Seventh Michigan battery, rendered very efficient aid in discomfiting the enemy. Two guns of his battery were worked right under the fire of the guns of the fort.
My own Staff discharged their duty with fidelity, courage and ability. They are as follows:

Maj. J.H. Elliott, Thirty-third Illinois. Inspector-General and Chief of Staff.
Capt. S.H. Dunbar, Eighth Indiana, A.A.A. General.
Capt. JOHN RUESS, Eighth Indiana, A.A.C.S.
Lieut. and Adjt. W.W. Zener, Eighteenth Indiana. A.D.C. and Provost-Marshal.
Lieut. Geo. H. Fifer, Thirty-third Illinois, A.D.C.
Lieut. J.G. Sever, Seventy-ninth Illinois, ordnance officer.
Maj. Ledlie, Ninety-ninth Illinois, senior surgeon, was detailed on operating board.

I would also make especial mention of Sergt. JOHN GOODLANDER, of Company F. Eighth Indiana, and private ADDISON HALLENRECK, Company K. Eighteenth Indiana, who were the first to mount the enemy's works the morning of the 29th. In mentioning the above I would not nave it understood that any of my officers or men failed to do their duty -- and their whole duty.
I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

H.D. WASHBURNE,
Colonel commanding First brigade, First division, &c.

Emanuel Hon Kinney

For a number of years the leading insurance man of Columbus, Emanuel H. Kinney ranks with the representative citizens of Bartholomew County and occupies a conspicuous place among the successful businessmen of central Indiana.  His long residence in this part of the state has made him widely and favorably known, and since engaging in his present line of activity his name has become intimately associated with business transactions, which have brought him to the favorable notice of the public, not only in Indiana, but in many other commonwealths where duty has called him.
Paternally Mr. Kinney comes of sturdy Scotch stock, his grandfather, a native of Scotland, having immigrated to America about 1800, or perhaps a year or two prior to that time, and settled in one of the eastern states.  George W. Kinney, the subject's father, a cooper by trade, also a school teacher for many years, was born in 1821.  He spent the greater part of his life in Ohio, but moved to Indiana in 1852, and died in Bartholomew county in 1858.  Elizabeth A. Ogilvie, wife of George W. Kinney and mother of the subject, was descended from an old Virginia family.  She was born in 1825, and departed this life in 1897, at her home in the southern part of Bartholomew county.
Emanuel H. Kinney is a native of Coshocton county, Ohio, where his birth occurred on the 17th day of December, 1846, the scene of his childhood being the town of Keene, in which he spent the first six years of his life.  Brought to Bartholomew county, in 1852, when the country was new and sparsely settled, he experienced all the vicissitudes of farm life under such conditions, his services as soon as he was old enough being required to clear the land and cultivate the same, in consequence of which his educational advantages were quite limited.  The sum total of his intellectual training included three months of each year from 1856, to 1862, during which time he attended school in a little log cabin, where he obtained a fair knowledge of the fundamental branches, reading, writing and arithmetic.  Possessing a studious nature, however, and being a great lover of books, he subsequently made good this deficiency by wide general reading, but by far the greater part of his education is of that intensely practical kind acquired by coming in contact with the world in the stern school of experience.
Mr. Kinney remained at homes assisting with the work of the farm until 1868, on December 28th of which year he entered marriage relation with Miss Louisa Collier, and engaged in the pursuit of agriculture upon his own responsibility.  He continued a tiller of the soil until 1873, at which time he removed to Waymanville and opened an insurance office, accepting the agency of several leading fire companies, in whose interest he succeeded in due time in building up quite a large a lucrative business.  In 1877 he changed his residence from the above town to Walesboro, thence one year later removed to Columbus, in which city he found a larger and more inviting field for the insurance business, and which place he has since made his home.  Mr. Kinney's career as a solicitor of insurance was eminently successful from the beginning, and but a few years elapsed until he was the recognized leader in this branch of the business in the city of his residence.  Representing many of the leading companies in the United States, at a time when the great value of insurance was beginning to be appreciated, he succeeded in securing an extensive patronage, and so pronounced was his success that in 1889 he was made a special agent or adjuster, in which capacity he spent the ensuing eight years, traveling during that time over the states of Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, West Virginia and part of Wisconsin, adjusting the losses his several companies had sustained.  Since 1897 he has devoted his attention to the large and constantly growing business of his local agency at Columbus, where as already indicated, he stands pre-eminently the leading insurance agent in Bartholomew county and one of the most successful in the State.  All losses occurring at this agency are adjusted by him, and so high does he stand in the confidence of the different companies he represents that his decisions are accepted as final, his settlements being eminently fair and mutually satisfactory to all parities concerned.
In 1896 Mr. Kinney, in partnership with Charles A. Turpin, established at Columbus the Daily and Weekly Star, which he assisted to edit and publish until 1902, when the paper was sold to M. A. Lock, under whose management it has since been regularly issued.  While satisfactory in many ways, both from a financial and professional point of view, his brief experience in the field of journalism was not altogether to his liking, and he disposed of his interest in the paper with the conviction that he was better fitted by nature and training for a business career than for the editorial sanctum.
In politics Mr. Kinney affiliated with the Democratic party until 1902, when, becoming dissatisfied with its attitude toward certain leading issues, he severed his allegiance and since that year has been a zealous and uncompromising Republican.  While earnest in his advocacy of measures and policies which he considers right, he has never aspired to leadership, much less sought the honors or emoluments of office at the hands of his fellow citizens, although well qualified to fill any public position within the gift of the people of his city or county.  The only office he ever accepted was that of justice of the peace, the duties of which he discharged for a period of twelve years, his long tenure in this position demonstrating not only sound judgment and practical knowledge of the law, but also a willingness to serve the people when his tastes and inclinations consulted would have led him to turn the office over to other hands.
Fraternally Mr. Kinney is a member of Pythian Lodge No. 17, which he joined about twenty-three years ago, and with which he has been actively identified ever since, having held a number of important offices the meanwhile, besides taking an active interest in the affairs of the order throughout the state.  In matters religious he holds to the Methodist faith, being a liberal contributor to the church in Columbus, in addition to which he also encourages and to the extent of his ability assists all charitable and benevolent enterprises of whatever name or order.  Mr. Kinney is a man of broad views and generous impulses, enterprising in all the term implies and notable example of those powers of mind and qualities of heart that beget confidence and retain esteem.  He is also a man of the times, fully up-to-date in all that concerns the material prosperity, social advancement and moral welfare of the community, zealous in promoting his own interests and at the same time active in his efforts to make the world better and prove a blessing to his kind.
By his first marriage, to which reference is made in a preceding paragraph, Mr. Kinney is the father of nine children, only four of whom are living, the wife and mother also deceased, the date of her death being the year 1892; sometime afterward Mr. Kinney contracted a matrimonial alliance with Mrs. Sarah O. Anderson, the union being without issue.
