Almost all of the purchasers were members of her immediate and extended family. Those on the list of the most interest to us for the purpose of this project were John Heaton, Valentine Heaton, Thomas G. Lofton, Isaac Gillham Jr., Fielding Jefferson Lewis, Gallatin Kinder, Samuel Kinder, Hiram Arthur, Thomas Gillham, Jacob Kensler, Isaac Braden, Ephraim Davidson and Margaret Letitia Davidson.4

The household consisted of a total of 13 people which included Isaac and Sarah and their 6 children, Lewis who was 17, Philip 10, Mary 8, John 6, Lucinda 4 and Martha 2. Also residing with the family was 54-year-old Bridget M. Campbell who had been born about 1796 in South Carolina and Martha Jane Campbell who was 12 years old and had been born in Illinois. The Campbells may have been relatives of the Bradens as no occupations were listed for them. The final 3 members of the household were farm laborers. Elisha Murry was 16, William Davis was 36 and Benjamin Davis was 16.5
(Husband) DeathIsaac became a widower when Sarah (Hawks) Braden died, probably between the birth of their daughter Sarah in 1853 and 1860 when Isaac was enumerated alone with his children on the 1860 census.2

All of the children had attended school within the year. Isaac's household also consisted of two laborers, Martin Bourr was 22 and Theodore Pealer was 28.

(Son-in-Law) Will15 June 1912Philip's father-in-law, James H. Spence, prepared his will on 15 June 1912 in Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri. He stated he was of sound mind and memory and directed that after his decease his estate shall be disposed of as follows:

He first directed that the expenses of his funeral and last sickness and all just debts shall be paid as soon as practicable.

Second, he gave and bequeathed to his beloved wife Martha J. Spence to be hers absolutely, all of his clothing, household goods, furniture, domestic tools and utensils and $500. He did not devise to her any real estate because, in lieu thereof, he had already caused his homestead, to wit Lots One and Two of J. H. Spence's Addition to the said city of Warrensburg, to be conveyed to her absolutely.

Third, he gave and devised to his beloved daughter, and only surviving child, Catherine Braden, wife of Philip Braden, of Nameoki, Madison County, Illinois, absolutely in fee simple, and as her sole and separate estate, the following real estate situate in said Johnson County, state of Missouri, to wit the north one-third of lots forty-seven (47) and forty-eight (48) in Benjamin W. Grover's Depot Addition to the said city of Warrensburg.

Fourth, he stated his only other child was his beloved son, John W. Spence, deceased, and that he had assisted him financially to procure the farm he owned and upon which he resided at the time of his death. Therefore, his will gave and devised nothing to his son's children or lineal descendants, stating his son left surviving him twelve children, and some of them have perhaps double Christian names, but in mentioning them here from memory only, he would use but one Christian name for each. Namely, John, William, Edgar, Gentry, James, Roxanna, Katie, Jewell, and Robert Spence and Laura Shadwick, Irene Shadwick and Lucy Perry (or Peary) (or Parry).

Fifth, if after all the provisions of the foregoing sections numbered One, Two and Three are carried into effect there should yet remain some of his estate, he gave and devised the same, whether real or personal, to his said daughter Catherine Braden.

Sixth, in order that the cash may be derived to carry out the provisions of said sections numbered First and Second, to defray the necessary expenses of administration, he authorized and empowered his executor (or administrator with this will annexed) to sell and convey any of his real estate, except that herein devised, at the best price he can obtain, and without first requiring any order of Court or appraisement.

Seventh, he nominated and appointed William Shockey to be the sole executor of his will.

James signed his will with his mark in the presence of witnesses, D.W. Clark and Philip S. Day.7
(Husband) Death25 July 1920Philip became a widower when Catherine (Spence) Braden died on 25 July 1920 at age 70.8
