    • AARON FRANKLIN BRASSFIELD

      This is the story of Aaron Franklin Brassfield as I know it. His birth
      & death dates from his Civil War Pension (Union) Application show he was
      born 13 April 1848 at Mt. Judea, Newton County, Arkansas. His father was
      Abner Brassfield born 1808 in Tennessee. His mother was Lucinda
      (Cindarella?) Gee born 1812 in Tennessee. They married: 17 April 1828
      in Chariton County, Missouri per Early Missouri Marriages by Susan Ormesher.

      He first married Elizie Jane Standridge ca 1871 in unknown place. Her
      parents were Alex Standridge (son of Martin Standridge and Catherine Rose
      Meeks). Elizie Jane's mother was Eliza Ann (unknown maiden name). Elizie
      Jane Standridge Brassfield died 1884 and is buried in Richland Cemetery,
      Newton County, Arkansas (per Cemetery Book). Their children were:

      (1) Sally Brassfield born 1873, probably Searcy Co. AR. She married John
      Kelse Hallum in 1892 in Newton County. John Kelse was son of Clinton Monroe
      Hallum and Salina Caroline Tennison. She died 1933 with burial in Haskell,
      Oklahoma Cemetery (Muskogee County).
      (2) Elizabeth Brassfield born 1877 married David Freeman in 1894 in Newton
      County.
      (3)Lucinda B. Brassfield born 14 March 1878 in Searcy Co., Arkansas
      Married Charles Kendrall Holt in 1894 in Newton County. (There was more
      than one Charles K. Holt).
      (4) Arrena "Rena"Brassfield born 19 Sept 1880 Searcy Co., Arkansas.
      Married (1) Lewis Hampton on 12 Dec 1894 in Newton County, Arkansas.
      Her children:
      (a) Mary Jane Hampton b 12 Sept 1895 Newton County, Arkansas.
      m: John Samuel Wheeler 10 Mar 1912 #159, Newton County, Arkansas.
      She died 4 Mar 1975, with burial in Coleman Cemetery, Pope County,
      Arkansas.
      (b) George W. Hampton b 27 June 1897 in Newton County, Arkansas.
      m: Annie J. Dial on 9 Oct 1914 #398 in Newton County, Arkansas.
      He died 12 Feb 1962 with burial in Coleman Cemetery Pope County,
      Arkansas.
      (c) Myrtle b 12 Aug 1899 died 10 Oct 1906.
      Buried in Pleasant Hill Cem. Newton Coounty, Arkansas.
      (d) Cora b 1904 m: Lester Adams; unknown date.
      She d 1933, with burial in Coleman Cemetery Pope County, Arkansas.
      (e) William Marvin Hampton b 6 July 1907.
      m: Edna J Adams (daughter of Samuel and Iska Adams)
      He d: 1 Feb 1983 with burial in Coleman Cemetery Pope County,
      Arkansas.

      There are many descendants still living in Newton County, Arkansas.

      Arrena Brassfield Hampton Married (2) Marion L.(Doc) Davis ca 1918.
      His father was Benton Davis. His Mother was Mary Ann Blackwood.
      Their Child:
      (f) Roy Benton Davis b 25 Apr 1919 Pvt U S Army W W ll
      d 5 July 1981 with burial in Coleman Cemetery Pope County,
      Arkansas.
      There may be other Davis children.

      Arrena "Irene" died 27 March 1960 and is buried in Coleman Cemetery,
      Pope County, Arkansas.

      There were probably more Brassfield children. Aaron moved around
      alot as I could not seem to locate him with his daughters listed
      on any census. Aaron claimed he joined the Second Ark. Infantry
      (Union) during Civil War and enlisted Nov. 1864 at Fayetteville,
      Ark. and discharged May 1865 at Waldron, Arkansas. His claim was
      rejected as the War Department could not find a record of him.

      Aaron Franklin Brassfield married secondly to Mary A Cook, born
      June 1864. Married 20 Nov 1888, Boone County, Arkansas. He died
      27 Feb 1933 in Johnson County, Arkansas and is buried in Richland
      Cemetery, Newton County, Arkansas (per Cemetery Book).

      In 1929 Aaron Franklin Brassfield was living in Lamar, Johnson
      County, Ark. He claims since his discharge from the Service he
      lived at Mt.Judea and Chancel, Ark. He did not file for a Civil
      War Pension until 1929 and he stated that his wife Mary Ann
      Brassfield was living (Mary Ann Cook Brassfield). No indication
      of where his second wife died or is buried.

      On "Declaration of Pension" one question states: That a member of
      his family served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps or Coast Guard
      of the United States between April 6, 1917 and July 2, 1921, or
      at any time during said period (if any members of claimant's
      family were in the military or naval services during the period
      mentioned, state the full name under which each member served,
      etc.) and he names James Brassfield. It is not known if James
      Brassfield was a son or nephew. Aaron's brother and sons lived
      in Searcy Co. Ark. Most folks believe that his name was Earn
      Brassfield and he married Mary Jane Standridge and that Earn's
      father was Thomas Brassfield. Martha Jane's father was General
      Alec Standridge.

      This has been handed down for ages.
      I did not find this to be the case.
