Steven Gilmore DeBoard1

b. June 1858
Father*Enoch DeBoard2 b. May 1821
Mother*Mary Ann Dixon2 b. 1 Jul 1832, d. 1 Jun 1912
Birth*June 1858Steven Gilmore DeBoard was born about June 1858 in Missouri.1,3,4
Name VariationHe was also called Gilmore.5
(Son) Census US 186014 July 1860Steven G. was enumerated on the 1860 census taken on 14 July 1860 in the household of his parents in Union Township, Iron County, Missouri. He was 3 years old.6
(Son) Census US 187022 June 1870He was enumerated as Gilmore on the 1870 census taken on 22 June 1870 in the household of his parents in Township 31, Range 4 East, Iron County, Missouri. He was 10 years old and could neither read nor write.5
Marriage*27 October 1878He married Lavicy Laster on 27 October 1878 in Madison County, Missouri.7,1
Census US 1880*11 June 1880Visa A. and Steven G. DeBoard were enumerated on the 1880 census taken on 11 June 1880 in Des Arc, Iron County, Missouri. They were enumerated in the next household following Steven's parents, Mary Ann and Enoch DeBoard, on the same census page. Steven was 22 years of age, could read and write, and worked on his father's farm, and Visa A. was also 22 years of age, could read and write, and was at home. The young couple's daughter, Anna D., was eleven months old.3
(Husband) DeathSteven became a widower with young children when Visa (Laster) DeBoard died at less than 40 years of age. Their daughter Anna, who may not have been living, would have been in her early teens, and the younger children, Ellen and Steven, were both under the age of 10 years.1
Marriage*13 June 1897He married, as her second husband, Florence Eliza Jane Murphy, daughter of Edward Emmett Murphy and Mary A. Robinson, on 13 June 1897 in Iron County, Missouri. Researchers have found it easy to confuse Steven Walter DeBoard with his father, Steven Gilmore Deboard, who married as his second wife Florence Eliza Jane (Murphy) Womack. Steven W. DeBoard was a veteran of World War I, married Violet Usser, and is memorialized on the Find a Grave website. He is connected there incorrectly, though, as the husband of Florence. Florence's husband was Steven Gilmore Deboard.8,1,9
Census US 1900*14 June 1900Florence and Gilmore DeBoard were enumerated on the 1900 census taken on 14 June 1900 in Union Township, Iron County, Missouri. Gilmore's birth was recorded as June 1862, which would have made him only 39 years of age, although he was actually age 42. He was a farmer and had worked every month of the census year. Florence's birth was recorded as June 1872, making her one year older than her 26 years. They rented their farm, had been married for three years, and Florence reported she had given birth to only one child and had no living child. Gilmore's two children from his first marriage, Ellen and Walter DeBoard, were enumerated nearby, on the previous page of the township's census, in the household of Gilmore's parents, Mary Ann, recorded as "Martha" by the census taker, and Enoch DeBoard.4,10
Census US 1910*22 April 1910Florence and Steven G. DeBoard were enumerated on the 1910 census taken on 21 and 22 April 1910 in Union Township, Iron County, Missouri. The "W" recorded by the census taker as Steven's middle initial should be a "G" as this was the household of Steven Gilmore Deboard, Steven Walter DeBoard's father. Steven Gilmore was 51 years of age and a general farmer and employer, and his wife Florence was 36 years of age. Steven could read but not write, and Florence could neither read nor write. They reported being married to each other for 14 years, that it was the first marriage for each, and that Florence had given birth to 14 children, 5 of whom were living. As far as we've been able to ascertain, it was the second marriage for each, they had been married to each other for 13 years, Gilmore had three children from his first marriage, at least two of whom were living, Florence had two children from her first marriage, and together they had three children. Four children were enumerated with them in 1910. Emmett Womack, Florence's son from her first marriage, was recorded by the census taker as Emmett DeBoard. He was 15 years old, worked on the home farm, could read and write, and had attended school within the census year. Thomas C. and Manirva, ages 7 and 6 years, respectively, were the couple's children, as was their baby Nettie, who was one month old. Enumerated in the next household on the same census page, was Steven's brother, John H., with their widowed mother, Mary Ann DeBoard, who had been recorded as Polly Ann.11,12

Obituary13 August 1889 The headline of her newspaper obituary introduced her as "A Woman Who Lived 105 Years" and went on to report that Mrs. Rebecca Sidner of Deckertown, Sussex County, New Jersey, had died Tuesday, 13 August 1889, after attaining the remarkable age of 105 years. She was born in Weirtown and spent most of her life on a farm. Mrs. Sidner married when she was 18 years old and was the mother of 13 children, five of whom were still living. "She preserved all her faculties up to the day of her death in an extraordinary degree and could graphically describe stirring scenes in the war of 1812, in which her son William was killed. She was only sick once in her life. More than 40 years ago, when her husband died, she began to smoke and she regularly kept it up until her death, being especially fond of clay pipes. She attributed her long life to her regular habits and out-of-door life. Her ancestry were long-lived, her grandfather living to the age of over 101 years."1,4

She was only sick once in her life. More than 40 years ago, when her husband died, she began to smoke and she regularly kept it up until her death, being especially fond of clay pipes. She attributed her long life to her regular habits and out-of-door life. Her ancestry were long-lived, her grandfather living to the age of over 101 years".

Samuel Deering1

d. 23 October 1671
Marriage*1647He first appeared in the records of Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), when married, as his first wife, Bethia Baxter, daughter of Gregory Baxter and Margaret Paddy, in 1647.2,3,4,5,6
(Husband) Death3 January 1649/50Samuel became a widower when Bethia (Baxter) Deering died on 3 January 1649/50.7,8,9
Marriage*5 November 1651He married second Mary Ray, daughter of Simon Ray and Mary Rowning, on 5 November 1651 in Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England). They were married by Mr. Flint of Concord.10,5,11,12,2,13
(Husband) Death1 July 1657Samuel became a widower for the second time when Mary (Ray) Deering died on 1 July 1657.14,15,16,13
Marriage*10 November 1657He married third Mary Newcomb, daughter of Francis Newcomb and Rachel __?__, on 10 November 1657 in Braintree. They were married by John Endecott, the first Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.1,5,17,18,19,20,2,21,22
Will*2 June 1659Samuel's father-in-law, Gregory Baxter, in his will dated 2 June 1659, left his son-in-law, Samuel Deering, his "little piece of salt meadow adjoining his own house, being in quantitie about an acre of ground." Seventeen days later, on 19 June 1659, Gregory added a codicil that voided Samuel's original gift and substituted two weather sheep for the land which, instead, was to go to Baxter's wife Margaret and their son John. To his granddaughter Bethiah Deering he gave £10 to be paid to her when she became 16 years of age. Also to Bethiah, he bequeathed one black calf of a year old and one black young ewe sheep, both to be delivered to her father to be improved by him for her use until she reached 16 years of age.2,23,24
Relocation*April 1661 In April 1661, the two families of Mary and Samuel Deering, along with Samuel's former mother-in-law Mary (Rowing) Ray George and her second husband Peter George, were among the first company of settlers on Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island. The Deering family returned to Braintree, however, before 1670.25,2
Death*23 October 1671He died on 23 October 1671 at Braintree.26
Administration*31 October 1671Administration of his estate was granted to his widow Mary (Newcomb) Deering on 31 October 1671 in Suffolk County. A portion of his estate was to be divided equally among his "eight" children. They were not identified by name, however, and of his children, the births or baptisms of only seven were recorded in Braintree. For an eighth child, Samuel Deering of Wrentham is highly probably. As the first daughter Sarah died young, there must have been another child, probably a daughter, to make up the tally of eight who survived their father.2
(Deceased) Court Action28 July 1674Joseph Adams filed a complaint against the estate of Samuel Deering and on 28 July 1674 Samuel's widow Mary (Newcomb) Deering was ordered to appear in court to answer the complaint, and in the meantime not to alienate any of the estate. She presented her account on 27 October 1674 and was ordered to pay 20 shillings each to the youngest seven children as they arrived at their respective ages, "the eldest having had her portion already." If there was any land at Quinebauge (Plainfield, Connecticut) belonging to the deceased Samuel Deering, it was to be divided equally among his eight children.2
