Hi June! My grandmother Bivian AGNEW CLAUDY was the daughter of Sallie WILMUT. I would really enjoy learning more about the Wilmuts...most all of what I know comes from a small memory book that Bivian wrote sometime in the 1930's or 40's. I've included her notes in the following outline of the family as I know it...I really look forward to hearing from you - and would enjoy sharring photos - I have a couple of Banjamin Wilmut and Mary Ann Bentley, plus some of their children. Do you have any??

Per email from John Burdick (jburdick@earthlink.net) 22 Sep 1998....regarding the circumstances of James' death..."I thought that some sort of illness took the family. The only info I had was a little that I got from Elizabeth's and James' estate records, which were very scant, but it did indicate that three coffins were delivered in January 1882. So now I'm wondering if James also did away with his wife as well, or perhpas he was despondent about something. I never found a grave marking in Lancaster for either Elizabeth, James or his wife. I wish I could get a hold of old newspaper accounts for the time period, that would probably tell me for sure. Elizabeth was nearly 90!"

10. Martha A.6 Wilmut (Benjamin F.5, Erasmus4 Wilmot, Thomas3, John2, John1) was born June 19, 1846 in Danville, Boyle County, Kentucky, and died August 12, 1936 in Wheatland, Dallas County, Texas. She married Joseph John Carter October 10, 1869 in Dallas, Texas. He was born November 05, 1849 in Newton, Georgia.

Notes for Martha A. Wilmut:
From Bivian Agnew's autograph book: "Mattie Wilmut Carter was my mothers oldest sister and was the last of the sisters to die (1936). Her husband was Joe Carter and there were about eight children in that family most of them I know little about - some not even their names and that is strange because I have stayed three and four mohts at a stretch with her daughter Claudia. Aunt Mattie was sweet and she had had anything but an easy life - she said one time " she went through the woods and then picked up the broken sticks." Uncle Joe had epieiptic fits. Her daughter Pearl (Whaley) lived with Uncle Eph and was married from there and Claudia at Uncle Charlies and it seems that Fleta lived with some of the relation but of that I am not sure - she was some years younger. Then the youngest daughter Bessie they have spoken of often - I don't know why I have never seen her - she lives somewhere not far from Dennison where Fleta lives but nobody ever suggested going there nor have I ever heard of her coming to Dallas to see anyone. When I was a child it amused me that one sister (Fleta) should be Mrs. Bush and (Bessie) Mrs. Trimm. I have no notion of what or how much family Bessie had. Fleta had three children two boys and a girl, now which is the eldest one. I have only met Alene Bush Walz whom you met after we hunted all over Dennison. She had just married when I was in Texas in 1930. Her boy Carl is about five and you saw him there and at Pearl's. Fleta 's youngest boy I met when I was in Texas in 1930 and 1936 he had graduated from high school and is living in Abilene Texas with his older brother. John Bush, Fleta's husband has been a R.R. engineer on the M.K. T. for years. For some reason transferred some where south of Dallas, I don't recall where - Fleta refuses to have anything to do with him and went back to Dennison to live. He was so nice when I was at their house last time and Claudia and Pearl have all always been just crazy about him. Monette is too. The only explanation she gives is that Aunt Fleta must be sort of" touched in the head."

Then Aunt Mat had a son Mack who lived with her until she went to live with Claudia in Dallas. Aunt Mat and Uncle Joe Carter lived in Oklahoma Territory or near the line which as you know is the Red River where Dick didn't see the cowboys.

Claudia Carter married Clayton West who had left home in Maryland and become a news butcher on the train - some how he made a goodly but moderate pile and when he passed on was President of West and Cullum Paper company (wholesalers) in Dallas. They were absolutely devoted - he got gloriously tight on occasion such as a visit they paid us in Chicago - but whatever he did was OK. From my mothers accounts of her family we girls were sure they must have wings until this was mentioned. But Clayton was a generation ahead when it came to doing "nutty" things. I must have been about thirteen when Claudia, Clayton, & Mell & Uncle Button paid us a visit. You will find Clayton's picture an a brief account about him in a book and Prominent Texas or Dallas folks. Monette had the book. When Clayton passed on he left Claudia a home worth about 11,000 and an interest in the business all told she was worth around $30,000. She sent for me and I spent the winterthere right after she was left alone. I was it seems the only one with out a home or family. That was soon after Janet was born - If Monette hadn't married then she I am sure would have been taken lots of places with Claudia as she was the favorite niece. Claudia made a trip of two abroad, summered in Maine and such luxuries. Then along came the oil boom in Texas and she made a profit on her old house and built a nifty two apartment (furnished/rented one at a big price and she and her mother lived in the other and she was ill for a long time but kept away from the family because she was Christian Science and they werent. She didn't live long after Aunty - when she died she left everything to her sister Pearl because she knew that she would have their mother to care for (Pearl and Al never had much) Pearl would have done all she could for Aunt Mat any how because she is a good woman, but she earned any thing that she may have been left. She had Aunt Mat about six years and most of that time sense less.

12. Charles6 Wilmut (Benjamin F.5, Erasmus4 Wilmot, Thomas3, John2, John1) was born October 11, 1856 in Danville, Boyle County, Kentucky. He married (1) Caroline ?. He married (2) Emma R. Tatom June 17, 1890 in Dallas Co., TX. She died June 16, 1893 in Dallas, Texas.

Notes for Charles Wilmut:
Went by "Charley". Per Bivian Agnew's autograph book...died "somewhat" later than first wife.
"Son of Benjamin and Mary Bentley Wilmut. I do not recall the name of his first wife - they had I believe a boy who died ininfancy and JEaneete - Jeanette's mother died when she was a very small child and Claudia Carter, Jeanettes first cousin and about 18 years old at eh time, went there to live. She was married from there to Clayton West a native of MARyland and Uncle Charlie married Caroline. Jeanette adn Caroline never agreed with each other so Jeanette went to live with Claudia who never had any children. Jeanette went to Sisters school and learned to paint and draw well enough to make some money at it later. I have no recollection of Uncle Charlie, but have heard that he was the best looking of the family and quit fastidious about his dress. The first wife died of TB and later Uncle Charlie went to Uncle Henry's in West Texas for his health. I faintly rememeber hearing of his death from my mother. It seems he went to throw watermelon rinds over the fence to the pigs and the exertion brought on a hemorrage and he died almost immediately. "

       i.       Mary Alice Jeanette7 Wilmut, b. April 16, 1891; m. George B. Carter.

Notes for Mary Alice Jeanette Wilmut:
Per Bivian Agnew's autograph book...after her father remarried, Jeannette went to live with her cousin Claudia Carter West until her marriage at which Bivian was present in Dallas. She had three boys and many years between them. After marriage and in 1936 lived at corner of 12th and Portland in Abilene, TX

"In view of the tendency to TB in our family Jeaneete was watched over so closely that she really had no pace of pleasure - but she was allowed ont time to pay a visit to Aunt Sunie's - they were living at Stamford Texas then . Some how met Gearoge Carter - no relation - corresponded and becomae engage - don't belive she saw him but very few times before the wedding. I went down for the wedding and wore the pink dress htat was in the trunk so long. No body expected Jeanette to live anytime certainly not survive any babies, but when you met her she had been married twenty-five years and had had four children. The boys were not so far apart and while they were youg she taught china painting and sewed for others. When Jeanette married she had 10 or 11 thousand in her own right with which whe and George set up in a grocery store at Cross Plains Texas (whereve that is_. George I guess is a good enough man - but not any business head and they lost all she had and she has helped ever since.? I never saw Gearoge but the one timeand hadn't seen Jeanette in twenty-five years until that night at Mell's last summer. Jeanette never had a real good time as a girl. Claudia loved her but was so afraid of her health she hardly could breathe and Claudia was so painfully clean one could barely move iwth comfort at her house - then she adn Clayton were so wrapped up in each other Jeanette was sort of out of it so of course the first boy who was nice to her got her. She, Jeanette is a marvel to do all she has done - she is sot tiny and always was. Jeanette is my first cousin.."

From Bivian Agnew's autograph book: " Better know as Button which semed to be a common nickname at the time or perhaps in that locality - he was my mother's favorite brother. I just remember him coming to our house soon after the fair in 93 - (one of my earliest recollections). He remained a bachelor for years - was a letter carrier in Dallas Post Office - at last married a widow Mrs. Ruby Harkreader with one girl - neither of them endeared them selves to the family - she was jealous of the nieces - I never got into her house - made her aquaintance at time my mother was buried but she wasn't as nice as she should have been considering all circumstances - spoke unkindly of the rest of the family and I told her what I thought. We never got better acquainted."

They purchased land about six miles south of town. Henry married Callie Hawes Dodson the same year the railroad came through. They reared nine children while farming and ranching. Their home burned in 1925 and they purchased the Owens farm two miles south of Holliday and built their home on top of the hill. Mr. Wilmut spared no expense as he wired it for electricity, putting in a Delco plant which furnished power. He purchased a baby grand piano for the parlor and a Seth Thomas Clock for the mantle. The children left home with the exception of Mary who stayed to care for her parents. Mary attended school with her sister Callie at Geraldine in a one room school house. She spent hours riding horseback to town and around the countryside. She cut patterns and sewed for friends as they copied styles from the Sears Roebuck catalogue.
