Download Adobe Acrobat File - 21. Julia Ann Drysdale - (The file has the following text plus images.)

Julia Ann Drysdale was
born January 27, 1814, in Kentucky.(1) Her parents probably were John Drysdale and Martha McGlaughlin, who were married February 15, 1809, in Montgomery County, Kentucky.(2)

Census records and other material obtained from limited research into the matter indicate the possibility that a James, John, and Mary "Polly" Drysdale might be brothers and sisters.
(3) A John Drysdale and James Drysdale witnessed a will on March 29, 1816, for Henry Boyals of Campbell County, Kentucky, wife's name was Martha.(4)

The 1830 census records for John Drysdale and his presumed brother, James Drysdale, indicate that only John Drysdale had any children living with him and his wife, Martha McLaughlin, in 1830.
(5) It seems probable therefore that Julia Ann Drysdale was a daughter of John Drysdale and his wife Martha McLaughlin.

Additional information on the Drysdales indicate that a Rachael Ann Drysdale, born Sept. 29, 1820, in Campbell County, Kentucky, probably was a sister or cousin to Julia Ann Drysdale. Rachael married Sandford David Turner in Rushville, Indiana, on February 15, 1838.(
6)

Two Internet surname forums indicated a connection between a Collins and a Drysdale. One source indicated a Martha Drysdale married James Collins on January 14, 1850, while a second source indicated a Huey Drysdale, who was born in Kentucky and who moved to Indiana, married a Mandy J. Collins. Both sources appeared to make a connection to the Drysdale ancestors of Julia Ann Drysdale and possibly identify two other cousins or siblings of Julia Ann Drysdale. However, no marriage records for either couple have been found in Indiana or Kentucky.
(7)

Undocumented information received by Curtis Older indicated, "I, too, am looking for Drysdales in Rush Co. I have 3 Drysdale sisters who married in Rush Co. Rachel married Sanford Turner-15 Feb 1838, Julia married John Worth-5 June 1837, and Martha married James Collins-14 Jan 1850. They were the daughters of John & Martha McGlaughlin Drysdale, who were married 15 Feb 1809 in Montgomery Co, KY."
(8)

Census and other information obtained on a William Drysdale indicates that he probably was a brother or cousin of Julia Ann Drysdale. William Drysdale was born in Kentucky, August 28, 1815, and died April 7, 1898, age 82 years, 8 months. He was buried at the Morris Cemetery located 3 miles north of Adrian, Missouri.
(9) William Drysdale married Elizabeth Earnest March 23, 1837, in Rush County, Indiana, however, no marriage record or license has been found for this couple via the Internet. Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry F. Earnest and Hannah Bitner. She was born in Sevier County, Tennessee on June 10, 1820. She died November 11, 1879, in Bates County, Missouri, at age 58.(10) William Drysdale indicated in the 1880 U. S. Census for Missouri that his father's birthplace was Virginia and that his mother's birthplace was Kentucky.

William Drysdale and Elizabeth Earnest were the parents of twelve children, including: 1) John N. Drysdale, born May 29, 1841, died August 23, 1895, married Mary Jane Allender; 2) Henry Drysdale, born 1839, died 1907, married Mary E. Davis, wed 1863; and 3) James, born April 28, 1843, Rush County, Indiana, died March 12, 1909, Bates County, Missouri. James Drysdale married Mary Strain. Many of the William and Elizabeth Drysdale children and their spouses are buried in Morris Cemetery, Bates County, Missouri, and others are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Butler, Bates County, Missouri.
(11)

William Drysdale and family lived next to John Worth according to the 1840 Daviess County, Indiana, census, and John Drysdale and family lived very close to John Worth as well.
(12) Additional research and data is needed to determine conclusive answers as to the identity of the ancestors and brothers and sisters of Julia Ann Drysdale.

Julia Ann Drysdale married John Worth in Rush County, Indiana, on June 5, 1837.(13) John Worth was born in North Carolina about 1817.(14) He was a son of Charles Worth and Elizabeth Frye.(15)

The first marriage of John Worth was to an Elizabeth Hyatt, as recorded in the William C. Folger Manuscript.
(16) The Folger Manuscript of three volumes is known as Genealogical Records of Nantucket Families. Folger recorded many of the Nantucket families that moved from Nantucket, Massachusetts to North Carolina in the late 1700s. Charles Worth, the father of John Worth, was born on Nantucket Island in 1761 and moved with his parents, Joseph and Judith (Starbuck) Worth Jr., and his brothers and sisters to New Garden, North Carolina, about 1775. New Garden became the present site of Guilford College on the west side of Greensboro, North Carolina. Charles married Elizabeth Frye of Stokes County, North Carolina, probably in 1799.(17) The listing of the Charles Worth family in the Folger Manuscript gives the name of the wife of John Worth as Elizabeth Hyatt.

No marriage record for John Worth and Elizabeth Hyatt has been found. However, support for the marriage does appear to exist in two census records. Evidence that John Worth was the father of a child, before his marriage to Julia Ann Drysdale, appears in census records for 1840 and 1850. The 1840 U. S. Census of Indiana, Daviess County, lists one female child, age 5 and under 10 living in the John Worth household.
(18) This child must have been born by 1835, prior to his marriage to Julia Ann Drysdale in June 1837. This female child is not listed in the John Worth household in the 1850 Indiana census and perhaps she died, or married, before the census was taken.(19)

Additional information from the 1850 U. S. Census of Indiana, Rush County, Jackson Township, household of John Worth, appears to support a connection between John Worth and a Hyatt, or Hiatt, family. The Folger Manuscript spelled the last name of the wife of John Worth as Hyatt. The 1850 Indiana census lists a Mary Hiatt, age 60, living in the John Worth household.
(20) It seems reasonable to assume that the Folger Manuscript and the 1850 Indiana census for Rush County contained two viable ways to spell the last name of John Worth's first wife. Folger used Hyatt while the 1850 census used Hiatt. The Mary Hiatt of the John Worth household in 1850 could have been the mother of Elizabeth Hiatt, John Worth's first wife, according to Folger.

Some might contend that the Mary Hiatt living in the 1850 household of John Worth, was the mother of Julia Ann Drysdale. That she remarried after the death of her Drysdale husband and that her second spouse, named Hiatt, also died before 1850. There appears to be significant, but incomplete evidence, to indicate the preceding was not the case. There is evidence the parents of Julia Ann Drysdale were John Drysdale and Martha McLaughlin.

The 1850 census records a Martha Drysdale living with a Susannah Underwood and Robert Underwood in Daviess County, Indiana.
(21) Susannah Underwood probably was a daughter of Martha (McLaughlin) Drysdale and John Drysdale. A Susannah Drasdale married Robert Underwood on February 10, 1849, in Daviess County, Indiana.(22) The John Drysdale household living in Daviess County, Indiana, near to John Worth in 1840 certainly appear to have been John Drysdale and the former Martha McLauglin who married in Kentucky in 1809. Susannah (Drasdale) Underwood appears to have been another sister of Julia Ann Drysdale. The preceding discussion certainly indicates the mother of Julia Ann Drysdale was named Martha, not Mary.

Evidence also exists that
Allen and Mary "Polly" (Drysdale) Hiatt could have been the parents of an Elizabeth Hiatt. Census records appear to support a conclusion that John Drysdale, father of Julia Ann Drysdale, was a brother of Mary "Polly" Drysdale, who could have been the mother of an Elizabeth Hiatt. All of these individuals can be closely connected, or an association shown to exist between them, through census records and marriage records. Queries by various parties on Internet genealogy forums also appear to support the Drysdale and Hiatt relationship.

According to the 1850 census record, Mary Hiatt owned the land on which the John Worth household lived.
(23) A Campbell County, Kentucky, marriage record was found for an Allen Hiatt and Polly Drysdale. The marriage date was May 3, 1817.(24) Also found was a genealogy listing that gave the name of the spouse of Allen Hiatt as Mary "Polly" Drysdale. A daughter of this Allen and Mary (Drysdale) Hiatt might have been born about 1817 or 1818 and could have married John Worth in 1834 or 1835. Allen Hiatt was born about 1797 in Pennsylvania. His parents were William and Elizabeth "Betsy" (Thatcher) Hiatt.(25)

An 1820 census record for Allen Hiatt exists for the state of Kentucky, Fleming County, no township stated.
(26) The 1820 census indicates Allen Hiatt and Mary (Drysdale) Hiatt had two daughters and one son who were under 10 years old. Since they were married in May 1817, they likely had one child in 1817 or early 1818. This child could have been named Elizabeth Hiatt.

An 1830 census record exits for an Allen Hiatt household in Rush County, Indiana.
(27) The 1830 census indicates one female of 10 years and under 15. This child could have been Elizabeth Hiatt who would have turn 18 or thereabouts in 1835. The 1830 census indicates that Allen and Mary Hiatt were in Rush County by 1830. It appears the Drysdale and Worth families did not arrive in Rush County until a few years later.

The 1840 Indiana census for Davies County lists Allen Hyatt as living near to John Drysdale as well as near Sandford Turner, William Drysdale, Seth Worth, David German, and John Worth.
(28) The 1840 census uses the Hyatt spelling. Hence, Hiatt and Hyatt do seem to be used interchangeably in the census records for this family. The 1840 census indicates Allen Hiatt was age 40 and under 50 and that Mary Drysdale Hiatt was age 50 and under 60.

There is no 1850 census record for the Allen and Mary Hiatt household. It appears that Allen Hiatt, or Hyatt, husband of Mary, died before the 1850 census was taken. The 1850 John Worth census in Rush County, Indiana, indicates Mary Hiatt was 60 years old at that time.
(29)

Additional information obtained on the Internet indicate that William Hiatt, born about 1777, married Elizabeth "Betsy" Thatcher, who was born about 1781. William and Elizabeth Hiatt came from Pennsylvania to Ohio and on to Kentucky William and Elizabeth Hiatt moved to Ohio about 1808. They then moved on to Kentucky, being in Mason, Fleming, and other counties in Kentucky.
(30)

William and Elizabeth (Thatcher) Hiatt were the parents of the following children, and perhaps others who are unknown:
1) Allen, born in 1797, married Mary"Polly" Drysdale May 3, 1817, in Campbell
County, Kentucky
2) Stephen, born 1798, married Lucy Morris, December 6, 1817, in Campbell
County, Kentucky
3) Thatcher, born 1799, married Esther/Hester Hunt, Green, Markwell, in 1820,
in Kentucky
4) Nancy, born 1803, married 1st Landon Bonham; married 2nd John Pemberton
5) Sarah/Sallie, born 1805, married Jeremiah Rice, March 24, 1824, in Greenup
County, Kentucky
6) Elizabeth "Betsy", born 1807, married July 16, 1830

It seems entirely possible that Allen Hiatt and his wife, Mary Drysdale, named their first female child Elizabeth after Allen's mother, Elizabeth "Betsy" (Thatcher) Hiatt. Additional research or data is needed to determine a conclusive answer to the Elizabeth Hyatt issue.

As previously indicated, John Worth and Julia Ann (Drysdale) Worth and their children lived in Daviess County, Indiana, in 1840, as did a number of individuals related to them.
(31) Sanford Turner, husband of Rachel Drysdale, appears in the 1840 Daviess County, Indiana, census.(32) David German, a brother-in-law of John Worth, lived next to Sanford Turner in 1840.(33) Mary Polly Drysdale and her husband, Allen Hyatt, lived in Davies County in 1840.(34). John Drysdale appears in the 1840 Daviess County, Indiana, census as living very near Allen Hyatt.(35) William Drysdale, probably a brother of Julia Ann Drysdale, lived next to John Worth in 1840.(36)

The children of John Worth and Julia Ann Drysdale listed in the 1850 Indiana census for Rush County, Jackson Township, were: Seth, James, John C., Mary J., Elizabeth, and Chesterfield D. Worth.
(37) In 1854, John Worth and his family lived in Shelby County, Indiana.(38) Julia Ann Drysdale died April 10, 1856.(39A) She was buried in the Old Boggstown Cemetery, Shelby County, Indiana.

John Worth and Julia Ann Drysdale may have been the parents of children who were born between the time of the 1850 Indiana census and the date of death for Julia Ann in April 1856. The 1860 Indiana census records for the family of John Worth include 1) children from his marriage to Julia Ann Drysdale, 2) children by his marriage to his third wife, Mary Jane (Lemon) Stephens, whom he married on January 1, 1857, in Shelby County, Indiana, and 3) children from the prior marriage of Mary Jane Lemon to ? Stephens.
(39B).

Mary Jane Lemon was born October 10, 1824 at Akron, Ohio, and died October 22, 1913, in Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana.
(40) and was buried at Battle Ground, Tippicanoe County, Indiana. The John and Mary Jane Worth family lived in Hendricks and Montgomery counties in 1860.(41) The John Worth family lived in Montgomery County, Indiana, in 1870.(42) John Worth died sometime after February 1, 1886.(43) No date of death, location of death, location of burial, will, or estate papers have been found for him.
