Notes:

HUSBAND - Elijah Gumbs BOON
ELIJAH GUMBS (BOON): B: 12/12/1796 in Northampton County; D: before 01/1845, probably in Livingston , Missouri; Was the illegitimate son of the couple, based on papers filed in September court, 1797, where Nicholas Boon is required to pay "10 pounds 3 shillings 9 pence" for 2-years maintenance of a bastard child. Nicholas Boon, or at least his survivors, acknowlege Elijah as a heir, when they provide an oath saying that Nicholas meant to give two slaves to Elijah. This also indicates that Nicholas probably died without a will. Elijah appears to have used the name Elijah BOON, once he left Northampton County. He is not listed in his mother's will of 1825, but another child, Nicholas Nixon Gumbs, is listed a s a grandson, and may have been Elijah's son.

Elijah spent most of his childhood years in the home of his uncle, Humphrey Gumbs and his two aunts Leah and Esther Gumbs. Elijah is remebered in all their wills and was called Elijah Gumbs.

Held a tavern license in Kentucky.



HIST OF CALDWELL AND LIVINGSTON COUNTIES (1886) identifies him as Elijah Boone. He, along with his sons Henry and Presley Boone, were members of the Missouri State Militia in 1838. They participated in the military action against insurgent Mormons at Haun's Mill in Caldwell County.

MRS. HARRIET BILLS

(Post-office, Sampsel).

Mrs. Bills, whose maiden name was Boone, is well known to the people of the community in which she makes her home. Her birth occurred January 10, 1824, in the State of North Carolina, her parents being Elijah and Nancy Boone, nee Evans. They were also both natives of North Carolina. The father was born in Northampton county, December 12, 1796, and by occupation was a farmer. He continued to live in the State of his birth until removing to Livingston county, Mo., in 1834. The mother was born October 12, 1796. Of their family of 11 children, Presley, born July 13, 1819, and Harriet are the only ones living. The names of the others, with the date of their birth were: Mary Magdalene, born November 3, 1814; Henry, born June 13, 1817, died July 25, 1843; Nicholas A., born January 15, 1822, died September 7, 1830; Milly F., born October 11, 1827; Clifton R., born March 15, 1830; Nancy A., born May 10, 1832; Sarah A., born November 5, 1834, died September 19, 1870; James H., born February 10, 1836, and Elizabeth E., born February 28, 1839, died February 3, 1844. On December 22, 1840, Miss Harriet Boone was married to Stephen Bills, who was born March 8, 1823. He came to this county at an early day, and in 1849 was drawn to California by the tidings of the fortunate gold seekers. He remained in that far-off land until 1853, meeting with fair success. Returning to this county he devoted himself to farming, owning a landed estate of 200 acres. His death took place August 22, 1859. He was a member of Spring Hill Lodge No. 155, A. F. and A. M. Mr. and Mrs. Bills were the parents of the following family of children: Ellen, born June 13, 1844, now Mrs. Clinton Wear, of DeKalb county, Mo.; Calvin, born December 9, 1847; Lydia L., born August 16, 1855, married John Sumpter; Nancy H., born April 8, 1827, wife of A. P. Shaur; John W., born March 30, 1859; Mary Jane, born October 10, 1842, died December 29, 1848. Mrs. Bills' father and her two brothers, Presley and Henry, were in the Mormon War and participated in the massacre at Haun's Mill.
