9. GEORGE MCNEELY3 SMALL (JOHN2, WILLIAM1) was born April 04, 1803 in Logan County Kentucky, and died May 23, 1865 in Small family cemetery on his farm, near Boonville, Warrick Co., IN. He married EASTHER MCCOOL March 16, 1826 in Boonville, Warrick Co., Indiana, daughter of WILLIAM MC COOL and MARGARET BAKER.

Notes for GEORGE MCNEELY SMALL: George M. Smalls' Will is located in Spencer will Box 61-62

The Small family Cemetery is located south of Elizabeth Chapel, 1/2 mi. S. 1/2 mi. E of highway 62, 3 miles East of Boonville IN. The cemetery is located in Warrick Co. near the eastern boundry line, on a small hill of 35.9 acres of land. In 1840, George McNeely Small bought this acerage, he willed it to his son George Washington Small, who in turn willed it to his son Henry Berton Small. On 7-8-1954 Henry B filed a declaration in Circuit Court as folllows:

I Henry B. Small, residing at Apartment 11, Oaklee Village, Baltimore, Zone No. 29, Maryland, do hereby set forth that I am the owner of the Small Family graveyard located and described as follows:

A plot of land that has been used as a private cemetary by the Small family, located within the Southwest quarter of the northwest quarter of Section 5, township 6, range 7 in Warrick County, Indiana, more particularly described as follows:

Said plot of land starting at a point 382 feet north from the center of the county road on the line between the Jones farm and the Small farm; thence running 67 feet north; thence west 54 feet; thence south 67 feet; thence east 54 feet to the point of beginning.

That I came in possession of this land by the will of my father, the late George W. Small, as is evidenced by Will Record No. 5, beginning on page 161, which record is in the office of the Clerk of the Warrick Circuit Court.

That the cemetery is privately owned by me and not for public use.

That it is my desire to establish this plot as a shrine in memory of my father and mother, the late George W. and Nancy Smith Small.

Signed and sworn to on the 8th day of July 1954.

On 12-22-1979 Henry B. Small died in Annapolis MD, he was returned to Indiana and buried in Maple Grove Cemetery next to his wife, Alma Mae Purdue Small.

In 1975 this recorder visited this cemetery and recorded all the stones still present in the cemetery. There were several which were broken, and some that were not readable. Norma Small Miller, daughter of Henry B. states that there were more stones than presently located. She expressed a concern that the man who currently leases the land may have incroached upon the cemetery and disposed of some of the stones, which may be the cause of Henrys' action in the courts.

At a term begun and held at the court house in Rockport on Monday the 14th of October, 1833, John Small was listed as a member of the Grand Jury.

On 11-21-1841 these three again make an indenture for an additional 40 acres of land in the section North of their property, Sec 35, two 7 range 7. A partial record of this transaction is held by this recorder and the complete description of the land is not available due to a copying error, but the entire transaction is in the court house. It cannot be determined if this land is across from their property or some other location within that 6 mile square section.

History of Warrick, Spencer, and Perry county, page 428. The united Brethern Church called Mount Zion, two miles south and one mile east of Richland City, was built about thirty years ago, (c.1855) among the members being Rev. Jacob Scammahorn, the founder of the class, Noah Shoptaugh, Cynthia Shoptaugh, John and Mrs. Small, Peter and Nancy Shoptaugh, and others.

NOTE: This John and Mrs. Small would likely be Nancy McNeely Small and her son John, otherwise they would have been listed as John and Nancy Small, however, it could also be John and Nancy Harmon Small but not likely due to the wording.

Frank baker was about eight years when his parents brought him to Mississippi County. He remained on a farm with his father until he was married, in 1870, to Mary Elizabeth Small, a daughter of Napoleon and Mary Small. Soon after, he located on a farm in Concord settlement, and in 1875 moved to the farm on which he now resides, having made all the improvements on the place. He and wife have two children: John G. and Iva May. Mrs. Baker is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He is a member of the I. O. O. F. and in politics is a Demorat.

16. JOHN DINWIDDIE3 SMALL (HENRY2, WILLIAM1) was born April 1819 in Spencer Co., Indiana, and died Bef. November 18, 1864 in Oak Grove Cem., Charleston, Mississippi County, Missouri. He married CAROLINE VAUGHN September 14, 1845 in Bullitt Co., Kentucky, daughter of WILLIAM VAUGHN, SR..

Notes for JOHN DINWIDDIE SMALL:

Left the Shaker community with his brother Napoleon on 12-29-1834. Dinwiddie wrote a genealogy of his family in his bible.

According to William (Bill) Small (wesmall@stlnet.com) he was called Dinwiddie in Shaker records, but first name was John.

There appears to be a discrepancy in the death date of John D. The cemetery inscription (stone is broken) gives death as 1863, yet a court record I have would indicate he must have died after April 11, 1864. An estate packet dated 18 Nov., 1864 , shows receipt for burial expenses 22 Oct., 1864.

17. JOHN SR.3 SMALL (MATHEW2, WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1819 in Spencer CO, Indiana. He married ELIZABETH GENTRY Abt. 1835.

Notes for JOHN SR. SMALL:

This individual was found in the Warrick Co. IN records, he was a constible in 1836 in Hart townlship. There are numerous land transactions for him in Hart township in 1836 through 1846. His father is assumed. His age is such that he does not fit with any other relatives except he could possibly be a son of Henry, brother of James and John, who remained in Indiana. It is possible he is a son of Matthew since he is listed as married in Indiana. Matthew is also listed in the 1830 census and located in Warrick county. He is placed here only as a temporary lineage until other facts can be found to support his ancestory, and data can be added to the record concerning him.

His children are listed in Warrick Co. records, he has two daughters listed as Nancy, which is unlikely and they apparently contain married surnames. One likely is not directly related but living with his family.

20.  JOHN WILLIS3 SMALL (JAMES2, WILLIAM1) was born 1826 in Spencer Co., Ind., and died Bet. 1858 - 1859 in Spencer Co.,
Ind..  He married ANN S. HOWARD February 24, 1848 in Ind..

Notes for JOHN WILLIS SMALL:

Listed as deceased in his father James' will written in 1875, not listed in 1850 census with family but is listed by himself as head of household with his wife Ann S. Howard. Also a Hiram Stuteville is listed with the family, assume this individual is related by marriage and would be a cousin and possibly a borther of Mary Stuteville, James' 2nd wife.

1850 census lists him and wife, no children. Hiram Stuteville age 19 living with the family.

1860 census does not list this family unit, but lists children who would be of the proper age living with his father James. Children of John W. were mentioned in his will in 1875, listing the children as heirs of John W. deceased. No other family member of either marriage has children who fit except John W, These children were added to this family unit based on this information.

His death date is affixed in the same manner, he would have been alive in the 1850 census, had three children, the last being born in 1859, his death was prior to the 1860 census. This places his death date 1858-1859.

Likewise, Ann is not listed with her children in the 1860 census, it is assumed that she died at the same time as her husband. She is not mentioned in James' will either. Since Hiram Stuteville was living with this family in the 1850 census, if Ann had survived, he would have been able to provide help to the family without them moving in with their grandfather.

Children of JOHN SMALL and ANN HOWARD are:

	i.	MARY J.4 SMALL, b. 1854, IN.
	ii.	JOSEPH SMALL, b. 1856, IN.
	iii.	ALEXANDER SMALL, b. 1859, IN.

According to a 4 page history on the Small family written by Abbie Small in 1925, Bailey built a church of logs on his farm of Baptist faith, he was deeply religious. Many of the older residents remember the old church, some of them were converted there. The church is gone but graves of Grandfather and Mother and their children, and grandchildren and some great grandchildren are there. Also some of the other pioneer settlers. Grandfather was a judge along in the thirties and he with another pioneer and wealthy landowner, Abraham Stryker, for whom Strykers landing was named, collected the taxes.Grandmother told of them recounting the money in the evenings from their saddle bags.

Then thereafter, came the Civil War. His sons to manhood grown, some married with families of their own, were the first to respond. My Grandfather and Grandmothers contribution to the defense of the cause, was six sons and two sons-in-law. My grandfather visited the little log church each day and prayed for the safe return of his brave sons, and he was rewarded. Every one of them got home.

Bailey W. was a first leutenant of his company and would have been captain, his captain being killed, but was forced to resign on account of disability. Martin, my father, was just 17, the youngest of seven boys, he too must go.
