MINNIE-8


   Minnie Sherman Ketcham was the fourth child to be born to Asa Calkins Ketchum and was born in Marble Hill, Bollinger County, Missouri on 26 February 1875. Only three years before, September 1872, Asa's second wife, Susan (Tingle) Ketchum had passed away and was buried in the Marble Hill Cemetery. Family history reports Asa was attracted to a young twenty-one year old seamstress and asked her to marry him. Lillias Jacinth Burton was reported to have been flattered that this fifty-one year old 'pillar of the community' should invite her to be his wife. She accepted and their marriage was performed by the Baptist minister on 10 November 1872 and recorded in the Marble Hill County court house on 11 November 1872. It was also noted as having been recorded on 13 Nov 1872.

   Asa C. Ketchum had two young children living with him at the time of his third marriage to Lillie Burton. Both Grace Greenwood, born 1862 in Memphis, Tennessee and Harry Clark, born 1870, Marble Hill, Missouri, were the issue of Asa and his second wife Susan Tingle. Excerpts from a family document written by Asa's sister-in-law, Euphemia Burton Howe, in October 1939 reported:


"A. C. KETCHUM was born in or near Ithaca, New York, the son of SENECA and SOBRINA KETCHUM, on June 4, 1822. He grew to manhood in his native state and chose law as his life work. He married early in life, his bride a Kentucky girl, who bore them a lovely daughter. But the wife was a frail woman, her health failed and they, in a few years, decided on an agreeable separation. His wife and daughter ADA returned to her family home, but their friendship was always pleasant.

"In time he married again, a Miss SUSAN TINGLE of Ohio, and during the Civil War they were sent to Memphis, Tennessee, where he was Colonel of the Home Guards. There their first child was born in November, 1861. At the close of the war he returned to the practice of law in Missouri. He settled in Marble Hill, Bollinger County, where he built up a splendid law practice and was a judge. "On November 10, 1872, he married Miss LILLIAS JACINTHA BURTON. They continued their home in Marble Hill for some time. On February 26, 1875, a daughter was born, MINNIE SHERMAN KETCHUM."


   Minnie's father was noted as the first lawyer in Bollinger County, Missouri, in a Bollinger county history. Family stories were repeated many times and an excerpt from Minnie's obituary revealed more about her [family tradition] early life.

" . . . Mrs. Bobo's [MINNIE SHERMAN KETCHUM] early life as the daughter of a Union Army officer was both interesting and eventful., closely interlinked as he was with General U. S. Grant and General William T. Sherman. Even the choosing of a name for Col. Ketchum's daughter was influenced by the two great generals, and it was decided to draw straws to determine whether the child would be Nellie Grant or Minnie Sherman. Perhaps the choice of Minnie Sherman was a forecast of the strong influence she was to wield in the lives of Indian Youth at Sherman Institute [Riverside, California].

"It was during this period that an Indian offered to trade a fine string of ponies, his prize possessions, for little Minnie Ketchum, a tale retold to the succeeding generations. . . . She was educated in the public schools of Kansas, followed by business training made possible by an honorary scholarship which she was voted. . . On Sept. 25, 1900 she was married to ALLEN HARGIS BOBO at Joplin, Mo., where the couple established their home. Seeking a more healthful climate for Mr. Bobo, the family decided to come to California and after living for a time at San Diego, they chose Arlington for their home.

"She [Minnie] developed an early interest in Indians when her father, an attorney was appointed a United States district court judge whose work was largely concerned with the Indian territory. Col. Ketchum's interest in the red man was perpetuated in his daughter when she came to Arlington [California] to make her home. Students at Sherman sought her wise Christian counsel and deep understanding when she conducted for four years the Cozy Nook, a confectionary store located where Wells Hardware now stands and for 23 years a similar retreat for Sherman students across from the campus.

"When many orphaned Indian boys reached the age limit for students at Sherman, they were given a home by Mrs. Bobo who went to every effort to help them continue their education in public schools and with her husband's aid, assisted them in getting respectable positions where they could take their places alongside white men. Through out the years, many of those, successfully engaged in business or holding responsible positions, have kept in contact with their benefactor."


   Minnie's father and mother seemingly moved around a lot in the 1870's -- ca 1867-77 Marble Hill, 1877 DeSoto, MO; ca 1878-79 Ft. Smith Arkansas; 1880 in Columbus, Cherokee Co. and their last home in Neodeshea, Wilson Co., KS (Lots 9-10, Block 57, Neodeshea - contracted for $325); When her father's health started to fail, late in 1881, Asa Ketchum went to a popular health resort in Chautauqua Springs where he died and was buried. Even though two different people attest that he died in that location, his grave wasn't found, either due to a sandstone marker eroding over time or because no marker was placed upon the grave. In any event, there is a better than reasonable possibility that he was buried in the old Oak Hill Cemetery in Chautauqua, Belleville Township, Sedan County, Kansas.

   Lillie Ketchum, a widow with three children and two step-children, signed a release on their Neodeshea home about six months after Asa passed away -- 18 August 1882. Lillie and her family returned to eastern Kansas, near Scammon and Joplin, MO. She eventually became GEORGE RILEY McCORKELL's third wife when they were married on 7 November 1883 in Cherokee County, Kansas. On their marriage license #2057, George was 50 years old and living in Cherokee County and Lillie was 32 years old and living in Crawford County.

   Minnie had been voted a scholarship to attend the Joplin Business College, and Shorthand Institute in Joplin, Missouri. A letter of introduction was provided on 12 May 1894 which stated that Minnie had: "Been a dutiful and dilligent student for three months and had completed the first five sets in Practical Book-keeping and half of the Actual Business & Banking course, and passed a grade of 96% in spelling." Another old letter-of-introduction dated 24 February 1899, Scammon Kans, stated: "I have known Miss Minnie S. Ketchum about fourteen years -- She has worked for me as Clerk & Book Keeper about two years and also been in this Post Office about five years. I can heartily recommend her to any one that may need her services, as being an honest upright young Lady and an expert Book Keeper and always found her faithful in any respect." Another letter from the mayor of Scammon, Kansas stated on 4 January 1899: " . . . I cheerfully and gladly recommend as a young lady entirely upright honest and capable of doing office work especially in first class manners. Has been for a number of years employed as book keeper in the stores of our town and as deputy post master." Phil L. Keener, Editor & Proprietor of The Scammon Miner stated: "The bearer Miss Minnie S. Ketchum, was in my employ nearly four years as Assistant Postmaster, and not only myself but the Department always found her efficient, careful and honest. I heartily recommend her for any position of responsibility."


KETCHUM-BOBO




   Minnie had been engaged for six years until Newt Wilson's sudden death. Minnie was working for the Kelso Mercantile Company in Joplin, Missouri when she met Allen Hargis Bobo. He had previously lost his first wife Ella (Williamson) Bobo, who was buried in Joplin's Fairview Cemetery on 8 August 1898 (West Div., 8-44). His mother, Sallie Ann Bobo, and his sister, Nannie (Nancy Prudence) Bobo had moved from Illinois along with Nannie's son Rector, to take care of Allen and his two surviving children: BERTHA (1887) and OTTO (1890). Allen H. Bobo and Minnie Sherman Ketchum were married on 25 September 1900 in Joplin, Jasper Co., Missouri. Their first rented home was at 821 Chestnut Street, Joplin where it is still standing today. Their oldest daughter, VERA LORENA (1902), was born while they were still living at this address.




Allen & Minnie Bobo   Several things happened that made the Ketchum-Bobo family free to travel westward. Allen's health had always been weak and the belief prevailed that traveling to a warmer and dryer location was a medical solution. Allen's mother, Sallie Ann (Hargis) Bobo passed away and was buried next to Allen's first wife in Fairview Cemetery on 3 Nov 1904. Sallie's stone was the only one erected in the Bobo section (West Div., 8-44) and reads: "S. A. BOBO Apr 28 1824 Nov 2 1904." Allen and Minnie, along with their family, migrated to Reno, Nevada. Allen's sister and her son, Nannie and Rector Green, remained in the local Joplin area.

   After Minnie and her family had migrated westward, her mother's new family, George and Lillie McCorkell and their unmarried children purchased a home on 12 March 1909 at Park Avenue near Fifth street in Joplin, Jasper Co., Missouri. One year later, Lillie McCorkell signed an affidavit that her husband had passed away on 23 March 1910 at the age of 80 years. Minnie's mother was once again a widow, but this time many of her children had already left the home and married. In 1914, Lillie and her youngest son, Claude McCorkell, traveled to California to visit her daughter Minnie and her son John. She decided to remain in California. Many years later, Nannie Green passed away and was also buried next to her mother on 13 July 1928 in Fairview Cemetery.

   Minnie and Allen Bobo lived at 406 Elm Street in Reno, Washoe County, Nevada for about four years and had three more children: ERIC ALLEN (1905), ERNEST KETCHUM (1906) and LESTER IRWIN (1909). Eric was reported to have died from eating green apples on 10 August 1907 and is buried at Moutain View Cemetery (Cottonwood Lawn: C2-101-4). Minnie and Allen next moved to a small town called Daheesa, which was east of San Diego, Calif. Two more children were born while at this location: HERBERT PRYOR (1912) and MARY LILLIAS ANN (1914). After suffering water problems with flooding and loosing their water well, in 1915 they moved to the Tyler Street ranch in Arlington, California. Allen farmed and was quite a horticulturist. He experimented with several plants, fruits and eventually created the 'Bobo melon,' a very tasty watermelon. He entered his best crops in the county fairs and won many first prize ribbons.

   In addition to Allen's early skills as a hunter and farmer, he was also known as a carpenter. He built a large home for his family soon after he moved from his Tyler Street farm. As the years progressed and the children grew and moved out, they no longer needed the large old house. Allen built several two-bedroom homes from dismantled portions of his old house. He sold these to Charles Strohmeier and later on, at least three of these homes were lived in by relatives: Mary (Bobo) Addleman, Bernice Karnesky, Vera (Bobo) Strohmeier's daughter and Elizabeth (Ketchum) Thompson.

   Minnie excelled in her business pursuits and eventually opened a 'confectionery store' called the Cozy Nook. After a few years in downtown Arlington, Minnie opened a new store opposite Sherman Institute on Magnolia Avenue near Jackson Street. Eventually they lived in a small house on the corner of Jackson Street and Kelly Street, which was barely over the Riverside dividing line between Arlington and Riverside. Minnie and Allen had spent many years in the Riverside area and enjoyed their retirement in this small house with a quarter acre of land. Minnie (Ketchum) Bobo passed away on 1 August 1947 and Allen Hargis Bobo passed away on 17 July 1950. Both are buried at the family cemetery in Olivewood, Riverside, Riverside Co., California.

   There is very little documention on the early history of Allen Holt Bobo's family. Unfortunately, a lot of Bobo trivia was probably known but is now lost. ALLEN HOLT BOBO and SARAH ANN HARGUS/HARGIS were married in Fayette County, southwestern Tennessee, on 3 June 1844. Six years later, Allen, Sarah and their young family were recorded in the 1850 census in Shelby County, nearby in the next county from Fayette. The census revealed their birth years and states. In 1860, the census revealed they had migrated to Bradley County, central Arkansas. At this time, he was employed as a constable and had four children. The youngest child to be born in Arkansas was John, whose age was listed as 6, so we can deduce he was born circa 1854. His youngest son, William (ca 1846, TN), had apparently passed away before the 1860 census. It was determined a Bobo research summary was necessary for a larger perspective; therefore, the known Bobo immigrant and his known descendants were compiled from a variety of research sources in the next section.

   Recent research leads this author to theorize that Allen Holt Bobo's parents were WILLIS and DELILAH BOBO, who were both born in South Carolina. 'Willis and Delilah Bobo' were reported to have been early land owners in Cross Keys, South Carolina in 1809, lived in Maury County, Tennessee around 1820 and lived their remaining years in Fayette County, Tennessee. 'Willis Bobo' is believed to have been one of the younger sons of Sampson and Sarah (Simpson) Bobo who was born in Virginia, migrated to South Carolina before the Revolutionary War. Sampson was reported to have been a soldier from South Carolina in the Revolutionary War. Many of Sampson Bobo's younger children later migrated to Tennessee.

Funeral services were held this afternoon at the E. H. Preston chapel for LESTER IRWIN BOBO, Jr., 11-year-old boy who was accidentally shot on a ranch near Nuevo Friday. He and his parents, of Bellflower, were making a visit at the ranch. The lad and his cousin were playing at the Ben Archibeck place when they discovered a shotgun. It went off and the shot entered the boy's side. He was rushed to Perris in the family car, but no doctor was available and he died before he could be taken to a hospital. Coroner Ben F. White has signed the death out as accidental.


"Sisters of the boy are DORLA MAE and THENA GEANNETTE BOBO of Bellflower. His grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Allen H. Bobo and Mr. & Mrs. R. J. Alford, all live in Riverside, and the Bellflower family also lived here formerly.

SUMMARY


   Minnie Sherman Ketchum was born on 26 February 1875 in Marble Hill, Bollinger county, Missouri, to Asa Calkins & Lillias Jacinth (Burton) Ketchum. Asa had one daughter from his first marriage but it is now unknown whether she lived to be an adult. He then had several children from his second marriage but only two survived, Grace and Harry (Ref. Chapter 2). Minnie's father passed away in Kansas in 1881 and by then she had two more sisters, Lizzie and Hester. They moved to McCune, Kansas and lived with Lillie's Burton parents. One year later, Lillie's father passed away and then the following year Lillie remarried to George R. McCorkell and lived on a farm near Scammon, Kansas. Minnie had been engaged to Newt Wilson for seven years and just a few weeks before their planned marriage, he died suddenly. Minnie had been awarded a scholarship to briefly attend a business college in Joplin and earned excellent grades. She later excelled in her employment in the business world -- assistant postmistress, bookkeeper, etc. She was working as a bookkeeper at Kelso's Mercantile Company when she met Allen Hargis Bobo who also worked there. Minnie and Allen Bobo were married in Joplin on 25 September 1900. Allen & Minnie migrated westward to Reno, Nevada (1903-1910), to Dehesa (near El Cajon), California (1910-1915) and finally to Arlington, Riverside county, California. Allen excelled in farming pursuits and won many prizes at county fairs from his annual harvests at his Prima Vista Gardens, once located a few blocks south of the Tyler Galleria. Minnie owned a confectionery store, called the Cozy Nook, in downtown Arlington. She later moved it across the street from Sherman Institute, near the corner of Jackson and Magnolia. By then Allen had a service station at the corner. Allen had two surviving children from his first marriage, Bertha (1887) and Otto (1890). Allen and Minnie then had Ernest (1906), Lester (1909), Herbert (1912) and Mary (1914). Minnie lived her retirement years in Riverside and passed away on 1 Aug 1947 and Allen passed away on 17 July 1950. Both are buried in Olivewood cemetery, Riverside, Calif.

MILITARY SERVICE


   Many Ketchum and Bobo families, as well as their collateral lines, have proudly served in the military. As a reminder, it can be seen in chapter two that Minnie's great-grandfather, Ephraim Ketchum-5 (bapt 1765-1803), served as a private in the Revolutionary War 1779/80 from Spencertown, Columbia County, New York. Later his widow, Jemima, applied for his military pension (W-26176) on 3 Sep 1825. Also, Sampson Bobo (1738-1804) was reported to have served as a soldier in Brandon's Regiment from South Carolina. There is some discussion that Sampson (1738) may have been too old to serve and it may have been a different and younger Sampson Bobo. Another argument for this position was that Sampson Bobo (1738) was a "man of means" and others of similar status were officers. Many ancestors from collateral families also served in the American Revolution, such as naturalized German emigrant, John Addleman (1752-1814), who served in the Lancaster Co. Pennsylvania Militia during 1777-1780 as a Private, 6th Class, 2nd Co., 7th Battalion. His oldest son, Andrew Addleman, an ancestor of Paul Addleman who married Mary Bobo, was recorded "Andra Attlemen," 1780-1783 2nd Co. 1st Battalion & also 1781, 7th Class, Capt. Enoch Hasting's Co., of Lancaster County Pennsylvania Militia.


   In the Civil War, Ephraim Ketchum-5's grandson, Asa Calkins Ketchum-7 (1821-1881) was reported to have served in the 'Home Guard' (later the National Guard) as a Colonel for the "North" and was stationed in Memphis around 1762. His home state for the 'Guard' might have been Ohio, Indiana or Missouri. He was also reported to have been friends with Generals Sherman and Grant. None of this has been validated except through 'family tradition.' Many Bobo sons served with distinction in the Confederated States of America (the South). Allen Holt Bobo (1819) was reported to have served and also to have made shoes for the Confederate soldiers. This hasn't been validated. It's more likely that he served as a civilian and possibly was involved in a few skirmishes. His oldest surviving son, James Spence Bobo (ca 1847), served at age 17 in the Army Calvary from Arkansas and later received a land grant in the Choctaw Nation for his service. Also, collateral family ancestors served, such as Harvey Holland Adams (1844-1926), Mary (Bobo) Addleman's mother-in-law's father. He signed up at 16 years of age, served for the 'North" as a private in Co. G, 36th Reg't Ohio Infantry Volunteers. His original discharge certificate and pension application papers have been passed down through the family. It's interesting that current descendants have ancestors who fought on both sides of this War of the Rebellion.
