Yes, I know who this is. However, I don't know a lot more than you do. This is what I do know:
Frank Noyes b:c1850
Anna Marie Van Deren b: c1855
Theophilus Van Deren and Elizabeth (Markham) Smith
Married: 17 Jan 1876
In 1927 Frank and Anna lived in Austin TX and in 1929 lived in Dallas.
They had 3 sons that I know of:
1. Nathan b: 04 May 1879 (could be 1877)
died: 05/06 Feb 1882 bur: Dodge Grove Cem. in Mattoon, Coles Co. IL
He died of Scarlet Fever. He was age 3 in the 1880 Coles Co. IL census.
2. Francis (Frank) b:01 Sep 1880 in Mattoon.
3. Gale/Cale b: 15 Oct 1881 in Mattoon.
I have never done much research on this family. Maybe I should!
Theophilus was b:09 Mar 1822/3 in KY.
He died in 10 Apr 1891 in Coles Co. IL
He is buried in Dodge Grove Cem., Mattoon IL.
Theophilus' parents were:
Jesse Van Deren and Nancy Jones
Jesse died in KY and is buried there. When her brothers-in-law came to Coles Co. IL in 1836, she was a widow with 4 children. So she came along with them. They all settled within a few miles of each other. It is very interesting to read the early history of coles Co. The Van Derens were mentioned quite often.
Elizabeth Markham Smith
b:17 May 1821 in Paris, Bourbon Co. KY
d: c21 Dec 1893 in Charleston, Coles Co. IL
bur: Dodge Grove Cem. Mattoon, IL
parents: Thomas Porter Smith (1793-1868)and
Frances R. Oden
Theo. and Eliza. were married 09 Jan 1851/7
I tend to lean more toward 1851 based on their children's ages.
Had 4 children:
1. Anna Marie b:c1855 m: Frank Noyes
2. Mary Frances (Fanny) b:c1856 (age 24 in the 1880 census) d: 15 Feb 1918 c: Dr. Christopher C. Webb
3. Thomas Porter (T.P.) b: 01 Jul 1859 d:31 Jul 1859 from Scarlet Fever.
4. Hubbard Frazier b: 09 aug 1861 in Charleston, Coles Co. IL d: 22 Feb 1902 in Indianapolis, Marion Co. IN m: Ida Warner 01 Jan 1881 in Coles Co. IL
I have lots more on the Van Derens. clear Back to 1650 if you want to know more. :)
We have descendents now from each of the 3 children that lived to adulthood.
Phil Barto descends from Fanny and Chris. Webb
Marilyn Martin descends from Hubbard and Ida.
I know that both of them would like to correspond with you. Since I have not talked to either of them for a while, they might have more on your line than I have.
Any way, keep me posted and if you can, send me a family group sheet or whatever so that I can include your line in my Van Deren gene. It is getting so big that I am beginning to lose things!!!
Thanks for writing!!!!!
