Sheila: Rec'd the Probate Records today.
W.C. Wiseman, is Wiley C. Wiseman, maybe Matilda married WILEY not WILLY! With the "old" writing and "old" documents that would be a easy mistake. Now, are you ready for this, Wiley died November, 1863, prob. in the Civil War because the children received quite a 1st Settlement thru the court, then a settlement annually from "his Pension Agent". If he was not their father, they would not have rec'd his pension.
Matilda did not die until 1874, she would have filed for his pension for his children,
the next settlement was 1870. Filing for the Civil War Pension could be done from any State at anytime, by a Widow or the children. Wiley C. Wiseman did not die in Howell Co., but his pension allotments were paid through the Howell Co. Courts. I think our mystery is solved.
My idea: Wiley C. Wiseman mrd Matilda Bledsoe, Franklin Co., Missouri, 1853, Civil War broke out, he went to war.Their last child was born ca 1861. He died in the war, she married John Linthicum, they moved to Howell Co., Missouri, where Matilda died. The children were still paid his Pension Allotment. The documents show Ben Orgon as their attorney, he was the brother-in-law of Martha B.Mabry Wright, mother of Erastus Mabry Wright mrd to Clara Wiseman. Erastus Wright is also listed as receiving Clara's part of the Pension Allotment after they were married. Erastus Wright is my GGrandfather.
If you wish I will copy and land mail you these Probate Documents, don't think they would do good on a scanner. But I would love to hear of your ideas on this. Waiting to hear from you, Beverly
