Nancy Ursley Keeling family GA/AR/TX
Posted by: Jim Friar (ID *****4249) Date: August 01, 2003 at 15:46:48
  of 1246

Nancy Ursley Keeling was born 6 Apr 1824 in GA, almost certainly in Elbert County, to Leonard Keeling and Elizabeth Haynes. Her middle name is sometimes given as Ursula (Ursley is a variant of Ursula). She married Thomas Perry Warmack on 22 Oct 1840 in Habersham Co., GA, where the Keeling family had moved. She died in 1847 or 1848 (very likely in Habersham), after her twins were born in May 1847 (also very likely in Habersham). Her place of burial is not known to me. Perry Warmack then married Judith Ann Waters in Franklin County, GA on 6 Jul 1848. They were in the Habersham census in 1850, but moved that year to Taylor Twp. in Columbia (later Nevada) County, AR, where he died 19 Mar 1886. Both are buried at Mt. Olive Cemetery in Nevada County, AR. Nancy and Perry had 5 children together and 25 grandchildren who lived to be adults. Most of the names below were extracted from censuses, cemetery listings, obituaries, and death certificates, all of which are prone to error.

According to an article in 1940 by Perry and Judith's daughter Nancy Warmack Atkins in "Personal History of Nevada County, Arkansas," Nancy and Perry had five children: Lucy Ann [m. Azariah Bailey], Lou City [m. Thomas Boswell], Dallas [d. unmarried in Civil War], Eliza [m. Addie Cardwell], Loranza [m. Anice Crank].

Lucy Ann Warmack was born in Habersham County, GA, (according to her obituary) on 25 Jun 1841 and died 16 Aug 1909, according to the cemetery listings of the Holly Springs [Nevada Co., AR] Cemetery. Her obituary in "The Nevada News" lists 1 Jun and 18 Aug in those years. Her marriage to Azariah T. Bailey on 31 Dec 1861 was recorded in Columbia County, AR, and they later had two daughters, Mary E. WALKER and Nancy Ellen WATERS. Azariah died 25 Nov 1909 and is also buried at Holly Springs.

Loucitta (various spellings) Warmack was born on 29 Nov 1842 in (almost certainly) Habersham County, GA, and died 25 Apr 1928, according to the cemetery listings of Union Cemetery [Nevada Co., AR] and her death certificate. The latter gives her birth year as 1843 but her age at death as 85 (which is consistent with 1842), while the 1900 Nevada County census lists her birth in Nov 1842. She married Thomas Henry Boswell in 1865, according to one account, and they had 11 children, 9 of whom lived to be adults. Their children's likely names (obtained from census records supplemented by cemetery listings) were: Thomas G., Mary Catherine ROGERS, Ann E. MAY, Dozier L., John Monroe, J. Lude (Louis or Luther?), Lawrence M., Lola L. MAY, and Georgia Leona JONES. Thomas Henry Boswell died on 19 Feb 1917 according to the Union Cemetery listing, but on 18 Feb according to his obituary.

Lewis Dallas Warmack was born in about 1845 in (almost certainly) Habersham County, GA. He served in Company I, 37th [Bell's] AR Inf. during the Civil War. He was captured and was unmarried when he died of dysentery on 19 Dec 1863 at Alton Military Prison in Alton, Madison County, IL. He is buried at North Alton Confederate Cemetery and is very likely the only grandchild of Leonard Keeling to be buried north of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Lorenzo Dow Warmack was born on 3 May 1847 (according to his death certificate and cemetery listing) in (almost certainly) Habersham County, GA. He was named after a famous itinerant preacher of the early 1800s; there were many boys of that period named Lorenzo Dow. He married Annis H. Crank of Nevada County, AR on 6 Jan 1870 in Shelby County, TX, according to his widow's Confederate pension application. They had six children, 5 of whom lived to be adults. Their children's likely names (obtained from census records supplemented by cemetery listings) were Laura D., Cornelia A. MCCARGO, Robert L., Samuel H., and Lillian A. PARKER. The Mt. Olive [Nevada Co., AR] Cemetery listing gives Lorenzo's date of death as 23 Jan 1925, while his death certificate and his wife's Confederate pension application list 24 Jan 1925. During the Civil War he served in Company F, (Colonel) Flippins' AR Inf.

Eliza J. Warmack was born on 2 May 1847 (according to information obtained from Fred Wygal) in (almost certainly) Habersham County, GA and was a twin to Lorenzo Dow. She married Admural [Addie] Franklin Cardwell in Columbia County, AR on 13 Dec 1866, and they had 9 children. Their children (names obtained from census records and supplemented by information from Fred Wygal) were: Sarah Pandora PENNY, Annis Luellen SPINKS, Leonard Monroe, Aaron D., Albert Perry, Emma Leona WYGAL, William Thomas, Alonzo Hiram, and Elvira BAIN. Eliza died 17 Feb 1917 in Childress County, TX (according to her death certificate) and is buried at Tell Cemetery in Tell, Childress County, TX. Addie Cardwell died 19 Jun 1922 (according to the TX death index) and is also buried at Tell. Addie applied for a Confederate pension based on service in Co. G of Crawford's [or Kilgore's] AR Cav. No record of service was found at the U. S. War Department (Trans-Mississippi records were spotty) and the pension was denied.

Any additional information about this Keeling family would be very welcome.
