June 18, 1936; Harold Keith MOSER, son of Harry and Naomi Moser, was born Dec 23, 1933 and passed away June 9,, 1936 age 2 years 5 months and 13 days. While his short life was one of affliction and suffering he endeared himself to all who knew him by his lovable disposition and the grave fight he made to overcome the obstacles that he had to contend with and while everything that human skill could do was done to help him he passed out of this life to that better world where suffering and sorrow never come. And as time eases the sorrow in our hearts we will always cherish the blessed memory of little Keith and feel that we will all be better for having had him with us during his short life. Those surviving are the parents, one brother, Karl age 5, four grandparents, 3 great grandparents, and aunts and uncles. Relatives attending from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. John Harder of Hammond; Mr. and Mrs. J.D. Blacker and sons of Remington; Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Moser of Brazil; Mr. H.M. Pell; Mrs. Roy Douglas; Mrs. James Pell and Mrs. Flossie Garrett all of Urbana, Ill. Pall bearers were Gerald Robison; Orris Reiter; Lee Foster and Paul Emmert. Flower bearers were Mesdames Gerald Robison; Orris Reiter; Lee Foster; Paul Emmert; John Harder; George Spencer; JD Blacker; Gordon Moser and Miss Irma Swanay.

LIPSEY, Wayman Stover (I5347)
1155 Wayne Copeland, merchant of Cooter was shot and fatally wounded by Clay Rushing last Tuesday night at Cooter. The injured man was shot in two places, once in the left breast and once in the head, and died at Oak Ridge, on his way to the hospital at Blytheville. Copeland had lived at Cooter for a number of years coming to this county from Tennessee and bears a good reputation. The Rushings have lived at Cooter for along time. Clay, we understand, is not held in quite so high esteem by citizens of that place.
Particulars concerning the case are rather meager but according to our information Copeland had closed his store and started home to supper, meeting with a friend they started into the soda fountain and as he started in Rushing started out. And without any preliminaries Rushing started shooting. Copeland clinched with Rushing and they fought in the doorway of the store until someone pushed them into the street. Outside they were separated, at which time Copeland stated that Rushing had killed him. Rushing was shot in the arm but a search of Copeland failed to reveal any weapon on his person.
We understand that there had been trouble between Rushing and Copeland several months concerning Rushing's attention to a sister of Copeland's, but apparently the trouble had blown over.
Copeland leaves a wife, father, mother, sister. and three children. Rushing is being held in jail here awaiting a preliminary hearing which has been set for next Monday.

Clay Rushing, 22, son of Frank Rushing of Cooter, shot and mortally wounded Wayne Copeland in the town of Cooter about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night, a 22-caliber automatic pistol being used. Copeland was shot twice, one shot taking effect in the head while the other shot took effect in the region of the heart. Thus wounded, and unarmed, Copeland grappled with his assailant and the two men fought until separated by bystanders. The wounded man lived for nearly an hour after having been shot. We are informed that Rushing's gun became "jammed" and would not fire the third time.
Copeland had just closed his place of business for the night, according to best information obtainable, and as he walked out the front door he came face to face with Rushing, who had just emerged from the store of a Mr. Wagster, the doors of the two establishments being only four or five feet apart, when the shots were heard and Copeland rushed his antagonist back into Wagster's store, where they were separated. City Marshall J.M. McClure took Rushing into custody at the home of his father shortly after the tragedy, and in company with Deputy Sheriff W.S. Owens, delivered the prisoner to the county jailer.
The dead man leaves a wife and three small children, living at Cooter. He was a son of W.S. Copeland, postmaster at Steele and was highly respected by those who knew him.
It is said that bad blood had existed between Rushing and Copeland, since last summer, when it is said, Rushing mistreated a sister of Copeland. We are not informed as to which was the aggressor on this occasion, but a man who saw the whole difficulty states that he will tell what he knows only when on the witness stand and under oath. It is also said that more than one witnessed the shooting, but their names are withheld for reasons best known to our informant.
Rushing will be given a preliminary hearing before Esq. H.N. Phllips at the court house in this city next Monday at 1 p.m. Esq. Max Kelley of Steele, will sit in the case with Esq. Phillips.

Wayne Copeland, 27 years of age and a citizen of Cooter was shot and injured so severely that he died in about thirty minutes from the time of being shot.
Clay Rushing, also a citizen of Cooter, is in jail and he will probably be charged with murder in the first degree as the Coroner's jury rendered a verdict that "Wayne Copeland came to his death by gunshot wounds inflicted by a gun in the hands of Clay Rushing."
Both young men come from prominent families, Copeland being the son of W.S. Copeland, Postmater of Steele, and Rushing is the son of Frank Rushing, a very prominent man of Cooter.
Bad blood had existed between these men for some time and the killing came as a surprise to friends as it was thought the trouble had blowed over.
Young Rushing had been loafing in Wagster's Confectionary store joshing with other fellows who were there and when he started as if to go home no one had the slightest inkling of anything happening until they heart the shots.
After the shots had been fired they clinched and fought their way back into the store where Jim Hinson undertook to separate them, but being unable to do so, he pushed them through the door to the sidewalk and then called Tom Evans and the two were able to pull them apart. Mr. Hinson accompanied Copeland into his, Copeland's place of business, and while there Copeland remarked "that he was shot and killed" after which he collapsed.
Willing hands hustled him to Dr. Cooper's office where he showed the unmistakable sign of serious injury and Dr. Cooper ordered him to the hospital.
Friends started to Blytheville with him, but he died just about the time they reached Puxico bridge, so they brought him back to Cooter.
Rushing was shot once, thru the left wrist and received a wound on the side of his head, but he was not seriously hurt, This tragedy happened Tuesday evening about 8:20.

1157 Why Mary Sears is not Mary Gears wife of Matthias Hunsinger

To show how Mary Sears is a daughter of Johannes Zaher and his wife Barbara Miller born 1762-1764 in Maryland according to her 1850 or 1860 census of White County, Illinois under the name Mary Grigsby her second husband. I will begin in White County, Illinois. Some have her as a Mary Gears because of a Bible page in possession of some of her descendants, I have not been able to obtain a copy of this page. I believe the loop on the top of the S was small so people took the letter G instead of S for Sears. The proof we have the same person Note the middle name in the following abstract of land record for Adam Hunsinger. Middle names when last names in most cases if not a famous persons name it the mother's maiden name. Adam Sears Huinsinger Vol 110 page 080 type FD NENW sec 34 twp 03S Range 09E 40 acres from "Original Land Grants White County, Illinois" published White County Historical Society 1992 from office of George H.Ryan Secretary of State. I have a land map which shows Charles Grigsby land purchase 1824 and adjacent is Adam Sears Hunsinger. It appears that Charles Died soon after getting to White County, since I can find no other record. But his wife Mary would have lived here. Unfortunately we can not find Mary until 1850 census because being female. But she is living with Adam Hunsinger's sister Mary (Polly) who married John Vaught. 1850 census District 19, Edgar county, Illinois 1850 Census age 88 born Maryland living with John Vaught and Polly his wife, Polly born Shelby KY about 1796 pg 154, Polly is daughter Mary Hunsinger married John Vaught. 1860 Census Township 3 Range 9 E White County, Illionis pg 613 Mary age 96 born Maryland living with Joseph and Elizabeth King (she is living with her grandchildren, the Sears ancestors several lived until 90's and a few into their 100's). So now we go back in time, Adam Sears 1850 census says he was born about 66 year in North Carolina, Polly his sister says born Kentucky 1796. Charles Grigsby was from Muhlenberg and Ohio County Kentucky before coming to Illinois. This indenture made this 6th day of May 1816 between Charles Grigsby and Mary his wife of the county of Ohio and State of Kentucky of the one part and Samuel Hunsinger of the same county and state of the other part Witnesseth that the said Charles Grigsby and Mary his wife. (this is an excerpt to show they were in Ohio County at one time and there is also a land sale in 1827 when they were in White ILlinois, this is them selling to Hunsinger. It is practice of the Dunkards to sell among themselves to keep the community their religion). I have Charles Grigsby tax records for 1816 backwards to 1808 in Ohio County, Kentucky and then his tax records from 1807 back to 1799 in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.. The following shows a land purchase on the Cypress Water way by Charles Grigsby, this is important because Mathias Hunsinger had land on the Cypress as stated next.27 Jul 1801 Matthias Hunsinger locates 200 acres of Land on the waters of Cypress in Addition to his former acres.Headright Beginning at Popler and white oak said to be be west corner of a headright claimed by Wm Bradford who purchased of Jeremiah Langley runing N45 179 poles to a sassafras Dogwood & Hickory thence N 45 E 179 Poles to a sugar tree an white oak thence S 45 E 179 poles to Bradford Corner who purchases of Langley thence S45 N 179 poles with Bradford line who purchased of Langley to the Beginning Muhlenberg County Court Orders Book 1, 23 March 1801"Charles Grigsby this day claimed a right to two hundred acres of land on Cypress agreeably to entry filed which is granted accordingly." 27 Jul 1801 Court order Book1 part 9 pg 187 Mathias Hunsinger this day claimed a right to two hundred acres of land on Cypress in addition to his former claim agreeably to entry filed which is granted accordingly. Mathias Hunsinger died 21 Nov 1805 and he is in the Estate index in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Mary Hunsinger is in the tax 23 Jul 1806 and not after this. Could have married Charles Grigsby here. (up to top to future with Charles) Mary Sears father received land in 1802 in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky under the americanized name of John Sears (They lived next to British Sears in North Carolina and so the Zaher name got switch to Sears, it is pronouced sort of like this).It is this land that is in the Courts 1844 in that states a Mary Grigsby is heir to John Sears 29 Sep 1802 John Sears this day claimed a right to four hundred acres of land on the waters of Green River agreeably to entry filed which is granted him accordingly. John Sears gave his power of Attorney to control the land to his friend John Sanders Graves in 1802 and when he dies his nephew Philip Graves takes over. This was done in 1802 and John probably moved with his son Jacob Sears back to Bourbon County, Kentucky where we find Jacob back in Tax records. FHL#0554993 Muhlenberg County, Kentucky Deed Book 1 pg 72Sears to Graves Know all men by these presents that I John Sears of the State of Kentucky and County of Muhlenberg for divire consideration and good causes me hereunto moving have made +ordained constituted and appointed and by these precents do make and ordain constitute and appoint my treat and truety friend John Sanders Graves for net and in my name to make a deed ( or assign over a certificate viz my headright of 400 acres lying on Green River obtained at the court of Muhlenberg in September 1801 to Philip Graves provided the said Graves shall pay the state price and other charges that may be here thereon and I do hereby ratify +confirm whatever my said attorney shall lawfully do or cause to be done me in about the premises about or concerning said land .In witness where of I have hereunto let my hand and affixed my seal this 28th of Sept 1802 Teste Wm Wooton Isaac Davis Wm Roarke Jacob Sears (his mark) (signed) John Sears seal Muhlenberg County Scs Clks office March 21st 1803 This Power of attorney was proved to be the act and deed of John Sears a party thereto by the oathe of William Wooton & William Roark two of the subscribing witnesses thereto and the came is truly recorded TesteC F Wing CC This is the land that is in 1844 the courts of Muhlenberg county, Kentucky had to try to figure out the owner because the people farming it died. The excerpt out of the court records says the following: note Mary wife of Grigsby, Also note the name Christian for future reference. Commr to Ferguson beingThis indenture made & entered into this 27th day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand and eight hundred & forty four between Charles F Wing commisioner appointed under ? of the Muhlenberg circuit court at the March term 1844 in a suit in chanery where in Mary Ferguson widow a wife of Joshua Ferguson deceased Rachel Ferguson to James & Sarah his wife Armstrong Hale Julia his wife James W. Ferguson and Joshua Ferguson heirs and resprentatives of sd (said) Joshua Ferguson deceased are complainants and Philip Graves Jnr, Christan Sears- Shults & Barbara his wife late Sears, William Imbler & Francis his wife late Sears, Peevler & Esther his wife late Sears, Martin & Elizabeth his wife late Sears, Grigsby & Mary his wife late Sears, Jacob Harmon and Catherine his wife late Sears, White & Susan his wife late Sears, Samuel Sears, Daniel Sears, & Jacob Sears heirs & representatives of John Sears deceased are defendants Many of the Hunsinger Children were married in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Now we continue back.Mathias Hunsinger is in the tax records of Muhlenberg, Kentucky from 1799 to 1804. He is in Clark County, Kentucky tax 1794 and 1796 and may have been in Sheby there are relatives there in 1796 for Polly Mary birth. He is in Fayette County, Kentucky from 1788 to 1792 tax. 1 May 1788 he sells land in Rowan County, North Carolina as per the following sold land Deed Book 10, pg 139 Book 11 pg 439 and 441 4 Nov 1784 he bought land in Rowan County North Carolina and his first son was born 1783 so I would say he got married just before this. He is on Reedy Creek. A John Sears also had a piece of property on Reedy Creek. A quick view but I have the documents because he is my ancestor but he was in Rowan County since at least 1778 his sons Christian and John are in tax records and so is he in 1784 all three. In 1796 in the following he is selling one piece of his land (he had a few) and moved to Clark County, Kentucky where his daughter married Michael Peebler (peveler under mical) her name was Esther. See list above. FHL #0315551 Rowan County North Carolina Deed Book 16 pg 13This indenture made this 5th day of October in the year of ourLord 1796 between John Sears of the one part and Gottlieb Grimes of the secondpart both of the county of Rowan and State of North Carolina. witesseth that for & in consideration of the sum of one hundred & fifty pounds of current money of the state ofaforesaid by the said Gottlieb Grimes to the said John Sears. In 1797 him and his sons are in Bourbon County, Kentucky and in 1798 all but one move to Muhlenberg and Simpson Counties. If we take Johannes Records backwards we find that he took out indentures in Frederick County,Maryland in 1768 and sold in 1773. Note the wife name Barbara and son name of Christian. At the request of John Zear the following lease was recorded Nov 17th 1768. To wit This indenture made this fifteenth day of May in the year of our lord one thousand seven hundred and sixty eight between Alexander Thomas Hawkins of Prince George County in the Province of Maryland Party of the one part and John Zear of Frederick County in the Province of aforesaid farmer of the other part witnesseth tha the sd Alexander Thomas Hawkins for and in consideration of the rents covenants & agreements granted or meant or intended to be unto the said John Zear his exec adm & assigns for and during the several and respective lives of the said John Zear Barbara Zear wife of the said John Zear & Christian Zear son of the said John and Barbara Zear yielding and paying John Zear (johannes Zaher , later John sears) is in Maryland as it says he was in Maryland at the time of this indenture) So this puts him in Maryland near the time of Mary Sears birth. We have just a few documents but it also shows Christian which is in the Muhlenberg record. John Sells this indenture 1773. The matching of the Sears family and the Hunsinger family in locations and the Grigsby and Adam Sears Hunsinger name to me make it only possible that Mary is a Sears. Mary Sears married Matthias Hunsinger some time before 31 Mar 1783 in Rowan County, North Carolina because on this date their son Jacob Hunsinger was born. So Mary and Matthias Hunsinger's famliies is listed as follows:1. Jacob Hunsinger born 31 Mar 1783 NC married Elizabeth Shull2. Adam Sears Hunsinger 15 Dec 1784 NC married Mary Vaught3. Catherine Hunsinger born about 1786 married Michael Hensley4. George Hunsinger born about 1787 not married5. David Hunsinger born about 1791 not married6. Samuel Hunsinger born about 1794 married Polly Ellis7. Susannah Hunsinger born about 1794 married Philip Graves Jr8. Polly Hunsinger born 12 Mar 1796 married John Vaught9. Daniel Hunsinger born 17 May 1798 married Margaret Stewart10. Elizabeth Hunsinger born 8 Mar 1801 married Peter Matthews11. Sarah Hunsinger born about 1802 married Benjamin Hunsacker, pjsrootsadded this on 3 Jan 2012

Comment by Ray Huffstutter: Ulrich served during the Revolutionary War as a Frontier Ranger in Bedford County. Bedford County was the site of Fort Bedford, one of several forts built in Western PA prior to the French and Indian War to guard the frontier.Ulrich is reported to have fought in the French and Indian war under the British General Braddock (source: The Decendants of Jacob Hochstetler"). If so, he likely served under Col Henry Bouquet, a native of Switzerland who commanded a unit of Swiss Germans known as the Royal American Regiment. Bouquet and his unit served in the Bedford area and Bouquet had his headquarters there. Ulrich may have settled there because he knew the area well. His military experience may have made him well qualified to serve during the Revolutionary War as a Frontier Ranger -- protecting the settlers from attack by Indians. This freed the regular soldiers of the Continental Army to fight against the British.
