Isahia was not the son of Martin. His three sons were Martin Jr, John and Philip

Believe Isaiah COULTER married Rose ______?, they have a daughter Falicia A. COULTER (Born 1823 Wash.Co.KY)

Maybe Mark and Alexander are brothers or uncles.

J.D. SNYDER (SCHNEIDER) Family

Mr. & Mrs. J.D. SNYDER and family of eight children moved from the Mt. Zion neighborhood to their new home in northeast part of Lowry City, March 13, 1904.  The roads were so muddy some of the children got out and walked to their new home on the hill.  They were riding in the “surrey with the fringe on top.”

After moving to Lowry two more boys (Uel and H.D. “Tat”) were added to the family – making five girls and five boys.

J.D. SNYDER loved mules and “The SNYDER Mules” were known all over Missouri as well as other states.  Many blue ribbons were taken at the State Fair and smaller fairs.  He was also a cattleman.

Mr. SNYDER was also a community worker.  He helped organize the Farmers State Bank of which he was President; and the Farmers Exchange now known as M.F.A.  He was President of the Farmers Mutual Insurance Co. for many years and served on the school board for several terms.  He owned several farms in St. Clair and Henry Counties.  Mr. SNYDER died in 1942.

Mrs. SNYDER loved her family and liked to sew for them as well as many neighbor girls.  She helped several girls with their dresses for graduation.  She enjoyed cooking and never knew how many would be sitting at her table before the day ended.

They had ten children, five boys & five girls:

Mary married Wm. BUNCH.  They had nine children: Opal L. married Paul NICHOLS.  Leo Clifford married Martha M. YOUNG.  Anna married Chuck MINICK, her second marriage was to Robert HORN.  Ray married Joyce PATSKI.  Winford G. married Arthur S. JONES.  John H. firt married Goldena RAY (later divorced).  Irene C. married Thomas E. JONES.  Gene L. married Effie Blanch DAVIDSON.  Lena L. married Durwood SCOTT.

Emma A. married Lee Gaines CHARLES.  They had four children: Edison L. married Doris LONGCOR; Lucille married Glen BANTA; Evelyn married Walter SHIPLEY; Ermalee married Boyd E. CAMPBELL.

Lora L. married Carl A. STEHWIEN.  They had four children: Dennis S. married Mary Ann CALIFF; John Daniel married Geraldine HAWKINS; Elva M. married Vicotr MANSKE; Bette J. married Donald D. RICE.

Pearl I. first married McCLAIN.  Divorced and married (the second time) Treo WITTY.

WEARS Family

John T. WEARS, the first member of the family to reside in Lowry City, was born in Newcastle, VA. in 1837.  He came to Missouri in 1860 and Mary E. RANEY, who was born in Louisville, Ky.

John T. WEARS was a veteran of the Civil War serving for three years in Company “C”, 7th Regiment, Missouri Calvary.  He had a brother serving in the Confederate Army who was killed in action; consequently, relationships with his family in Virginia were broken, and never resumed.

Mary RANEY WEARS united with a Baptist church in 1862 and John T. WEARS united with the church in 1868.  They were members at Tebo Baptist which they joined in 1904.  They continued in fellowship with the church until Mary WEARS death in 1919 and John WEARS death in 1930.

John T. and Mary WEARS had eleven children; two dying in infancy.  All, or most of the others, lived in Lowry City at some time in their young adult lives.  One son, Thadeus, was in the insurance and real estate business for many years in Lowry City.  The youngest child, Fred, was a barber in Lowry City for many years until his death in 1957.

Fred W. WEARS was born in Mt. Zion, Mo. and married Mary J. CARVER who was born in Roscoe, Mo.  During their married life they moved away from Lowry City several times, returning the last time in 1945.

Fred W. and Mary WEARS had five children, all born in Lowry City.  The first born was Doris WEARS COLLEY, who now lives in Ocean Park, Wa.  Next born was Leo Glenn who retired from the Marine Corps and now lives Ocotillo, CA.  Followed by Helen WEARS JUCHET who now lives in Raytown, Mo.  Next born was John E. WEARS who retired from AT & T and lives in Kansas City, Mo.  The last born was Harold G. WEARS who retired from the Kansas City, Mo. Police Department and lives in rural Lowry City.  All of the five children, except John, graduated from Lowry City High School; John graduated from Northeast High School in Kansas City, Mo.

Harold G. WEARS married Gloria R. HADSALL, a transplanted Iowan and graduate of Lowry City High School in 1952.  They have two children; Thomas G. WEARS, a naval submarine officer, who resides with his wife and three children in Virginia Beach, VA., and a daughter, Ann WEARS MULVIHILL who resides in Washington D.C. where she and her husband are employed.

While we cannot recount a 125 year relationship with Lowry City we can trace an interest and involvement spanning 100 years.  Fred WEARS served a term as Mayor of Lowry City and it is believed it was during this time, or possibly later with his help, the first sign with the motto “Where the Ozarks Meet the Plains” was erected.

Obituary of Mary E. Wears

Obituary

Mary E. WEARS, after a long illness, passed away Friday morning at her home in Lowry City, surrounded by her husband, John T. WEARS, and all of her children, except one son, R.J. WEARS, of Arizona, who could not get here in time.

The deceased was born in Washington county, Kentucky, January 16, 1845, and died at her home in this city March 7, 1919, at the age of 74 years, 1 month and 21 days. She has been a resident of this city for over twenty years. In 1862 she joined the Baptist church and had been a member ever since. She was united in marriage to John T. WEARS of Henry county, Missouri, March 26, 1862. To this union were born twelve children of whom nine are now living: Six sons, E.T. of Lewis, Kansas; G.W. of Higgins, Texas; J.G. of Eclar, Texas; R.J. of Arizona, and T.S. and Fred of Lowry City; and three daughters, Mrs. Mattie MARSH and Mrs. Minnie BARBER of Kansas City, Missouri, and Mrs. Uilla BAGLEY of Lowry City.

Though ill for a long time preceding her death Mrs. WEARS bore her suffering without a murmur.  Everything that loving hands could do was done to help relieve her suffering but all in vain, and she quietly passed away.

Rev. W.S. WEIR of Adrian, Mo., an old-time friend of the family preached her funeral Saturday at the Baptist church to a large concourse of her friends and neighbors, and she was tenderly laid away that evening in the Barnett cemetery.

The many friends of the WEARS family will extend their heartfelt sympathy to them in their bereavement.

Letter from Dorothy Clanton Phillips

Source: Dorothy Clanton Phillips to Carol Lee Mattocks, 7 January 1996.

Dear Ms. Mattocks:

I am a volunteer at the Hopkins County Genealogical Society Library in Sulphur Springs, Texas. I also am doing research on the Colter family. Colters are my relatives. My husband and I went to Salt Lake City, Utah (Morman Library) and found the name of Falicia Coulter on the computor. At first I didn’t think Falicia could be any relation, because I had not found her on the Census. Looking again at the 1850 Census, Washington County, Kentucky, I found her (Falicia) married to Andrew Jackson Raney and living next to Isaiah Colter (my ggg grandfather). They are on page 167, family number 524 and 525. I am sending you a copy of the 1850 census and family group sheets on the Colter’s. Isaiah Colter and Rosanna Burris (Burress) Colter are buried in a family burial ground owned by Coulters in 1996 near Willisburg on the old Mackville Road. My sister and I saw the stones (can’t read names) in a field with large bales of hay on top of them.

I found the information about the burial place for Isaiah Colter and Rosannah at the Filson Club Library in Louisville, Kentucky. My sister and I have made three trips (1994, 1995, and 1996) to kentucky. There is a lot of information about the Colters in the Courthouse at Springfield, Kentucky.

My family connections to the Colters are:

Isaiah COLTER – Rosannah BURRIS (BURRESS) ggg grandparents
Thomas COLTER – Caroline LANHAM gg grandparents
Burnette COLTER – M.H. KIMBERLIN g grandparents
Margaret KIMBERLIN – V.E. SEWARD grandparents

I am sending you some copies of things that I have on the Colters. I hope this will help you in your research. If you have anything that I don’t have, please send me a copy of it. I will get a copy to my sister who lives in Oklahoma. She is a half-sister on my mother’s side. We have different fathers. Her name is Alice Joyce Thomas Ellington.

Sincerely,
Dorothy Clanton Phillips
Dorothy Clanton Phillips

P.S. Falicia had to be Andrew Jackson RANEY’s first wife. The chilren were born while still in Kentucky & before the children born to Susannah.
