Dora Ada Hinson Sanders is my grandfather Wallace Paul Cowan’s aunt, sister to his mother Myrtle Bertie Hinson Cowan (1879-1971). She is the 3rd of 10 children of Isaac Newton Hinson (1849-1925) and Louisa Cumi Harp Hinson (1852-1918). You can read about their family here.

Ada was born May 7, 1875 in Whitener, Arkansas. By the 1900 US Census she had been married to Andrew Jackson Sanders, a farmer, for 7 years and had given birth to 3 children, two of which were living: Albert U, age 3; Samuel N, age 2. They lived in Madison County, Arkansas. I haven’t found a record of their marriage, but Andrew’s Find A Grave memorial says they were married February 28, 1893 in Madison County, Arkansas. It lists Dora A as 25 and Andrew J as 26.

HINSON Isaac HARP Louisa, HINSON Bertie HINSON Dora Ada SANDERS Andrew Jackson

Sonny Sanders (son of Utah Sanders) sent me the portraits above and the group photo below.  Dora and Andrew Jackson Sanders are mismarked as Mr. & Mrs. A. G. Sanders. I think the photo was taken around 1905-06. I haven’t identified all the siblings in the photo but Ada’s mother Cumi is in the center and her father Isaac is marked G. Father Hinson.

(Update: Shiloh Museum of Ozark History has this photo in their archives and provided me with more information. It was taken at the Baggett residence in Springdale around 1904. The man in the middle row to the left of Cumi is Blake Baggett. Based on this identification, think he’s holding his daughter Winnie G. Baggett, who was born in 1900, and I believe that is his wife May Belle Hinson Baggett standing behind him to the left.)

On the 1910 US Census, Ada L and Andrew J are both 35. They are still farming in Springdale. Eutah S is 13, Samuel R is 12 and Otis C is 9.

I can’t find them on the 1920 US Census but from Utah’s Find A Grave memorial I know the family moved to Washington state in about 1911, and then to Texas in 1913.

Photo: “at their farm in Texas”

In the 1930 US Census, Ada and Andrew J are 55 & 56 years old. In the 1940 US Census, D Ada is 65 and Andrew J is 66. They are farming in Crosby, Texas.

Utah is married and farming in Lubbock, Texas in 1930 and by 1940 is a contractor is Los Angeles. Sam is married and farming in Lubbock (1930 and 1940). Ott is married and lives in Crosby. He is working as a teacher (1930) and a superintendent (1940).

Ada and Andrew both died at Poplar Grove Convalescent Home in Lubbock, Texas. Ada died on December 28, 1959 and Andrew died June 30, 1962. Find A Grave has memorials for Ada and Andrew. They are buried in Lorenzo Cemetery in Crosby County, Texas.

May Belle Hinson Baggett is my grandfather Wallace Paul Cowan’s aunt, sister to his mother Myrtle Bertie Hinson Cowan (1879-1971). She is the 4th of 10 children of Isaac Newton Hinson (1849-1925) and Louisa Cumi Harp Hinson (1852-1918). You can read about their family here.

Belle was born September 24, 1977 in Whitener, Arkansas. She appears on the 1880 US Census as Emily M Hinson, age 3. She married Robert Blake Baggett in Washington County, Arkansas on December 24, 1899. She was 22 and he was 28.

Shiloh Museum of Ozark History has this photo in their archives and provided me with more information. It was taken at the Baggett residence in Springdale around 1904. The man in the middle row to the left of Cumi is Blake Baggett. With this identify confirmed, I think he’s holding his daughter Winnie G. Baggett, who was born in 1900, and I believe that is his wife May Belle Hinson Baggett standing behind him to the left. Dora and Andrew Jackson Sanders are mismarked as Mr. & Mrs. A. G. Sanders. I haven’t identified all the people in the photo but Ada’s mother Cumi is in the center and her father Isaac is marked G. Father Hinson.)

I find them next on the 1910 US Census in Springdale, Arkansas. Belle M is 32, Robert B. Baggett is 39, and they have three children: Winnie G is 9, Andy Ray is 6, and Theda is 3. Robert’s occupation is “Teaming” and industry is “freight.”

Standing, right to left are May Belle Hinson Baggett, probably her daughter Theda Gail Baggett Collins, then Wallace Paul Cowan and Mrs. Gramblin and Faye. I thought Mrs. Gramblin and Faye were neighbors but I can’t find them on a census.

On the 1920 US Census, May Belle is 42 and Blake is 48. Blake’s occupation is farmer and industry is “home farm.” They live in Springdale and Theda is 12 and Ada is 8.

HINSON Clopie on left HINSON Vernie on right

A cousin, Sonny Sanders, sent me these photos of Cleopatra Ellen Hinson Johnson. In the photo on the left, she is on the left with her sister Vernie Jane Hinson Lloyd (1889-1920). In the photo below she is (I think on the left) with her sister Dora Ada Hinson Sanders.

HINSON Dora Ada HINSON Clopie edited

Cleopatra is my grandfather Wallace Paul Cowan’s aunt, sister to his mother Myrtle Bertie Hinson Cowan (1879-1971). She is the 9th of 10 children of Isaac Newton Hinson (1849-1925) and Louisa Cumi Harp Hinson (1852-1918). You can read about their family here.

It seems that Cleopatra used the name Clopie most of her life. As a child on the US Census with her parents, she appears as Clara Henson age 14 in 1900, and as Cleopie E Henson age 24 in 1910.

On December 23, 1912, Clopie married Sterling Oscar Johnson in Washington County, Arkansas. The index for Arkansas marriages has her name as Julia Cleopie Hinson and says she was 26 and living in Springdale, Arkansas. Sterling O. was 24 and living in Memphis, Tennessee.

On the 1920 US Census, they live in Memphis. Sterling is 32 and working as a Car Counter for the railroad. Clopie is 31 and they have three children: Maurice (age 6), Roena (age 4) and Thelma (age 9 months).

On the 1930 US Census, they are still in Memphis. Sterling is 41 and working as a Car Counter for the Missouri Pacific Railroad.  Clopie is also 41. Maurice is 15, Rowena is 13, Thelma is 12, and there are two more children, Jerome (age 9) and Audry Bell (age 4).

On the 1940 US Census, they still live in Memphis. Sterling is 50 and working as a Freight Cashier for the railroad, and Clopie is 51. All their children still live at home. Maurice is 27 and a Yard Clerk for the railroad. Rowena is 24 and an Operator for a telegraph company. Thelma is 21 and not working. Jerome is 20 and not working. Audrey is 14.

The next record I have of Clopie is her Tennessee Death Certificate where she is listed as Clopie Hinson Johnson. She died of mitral insufficiency on October 24, 1946 and she is buried in Memorial Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee. Her Find a Grave memorial is here.

Her children:

Maurice Sterling Johnson enlisted in the US Army on June 4, 1941, and served in World War II. He married Shirley Jacobson on September 5, 1944 in Kitsap County, Washington. He was in the US Army at the time. According to Social Security records he was born on November 16, 1913 and died on May 12, 1980.

Rowena Gussie Johnson married Francis Ray Nicholson in 1944 and they had 2 daughters. Her Find A Grave memorial says they lived in Tennessee until retirement in 1989 and then in Boulder, Colorado. According to Social Security records she was born November 13, 1915 and died November 28, 2007.

Thelma Louise Johnson, according to Social Security records, was born April 17, 1918 and died June 1, 2000.  She married Guy W. Canipe, and she died in Cordova, Tennessee. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.

 

 

 

 

Jerome Hinson Johnson, according to Social Security records, was born January 3, 1920 and died November 8, 1994 in Clayton, Georgia.

Audrey Bell Johnson married Raymond Joseph Percha on September 25, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan. I don’t have further information on them.

Vernie Jane Hinson Lloyd (1889-1920)

HINSON Clopie on left HINSON Vernie on right

A cousin, Sonny Sanders, sent me this photo of Vernie Jane Hinson Lloyd, with her sister Cleopatra Ellen Hinson Johnson (1886-1946) on the left.

Vernie is my grandfather Wallace Paul Cowan’s aunt, sister to his mother Myrtle Bertie Hinson Cowan (1879-1971). She is the youngest of 10 children of Isaac Newton Hinson (1849-1925) and Louisa Cumi Harp Hinson (1852-1918). You can read about their family here.

 

 

 

Sonny Sanders also sent me the photo below. Sonny is grandson of Vernie’s sister Dora Ada Hinson Sanders, and son of Utah Sanders pictured, so he is Vernie’s great nephew.

HINSON Isaac HARP Louisa, HINSON Bertie HINSON Dora Ada SANDERS Andrew Jackson

Dora and her husband Andrew Jackson Sanders are mismarked in this photo as Mr. & Mrs. A. G. Sanders. Ottis Lee Sanders was born in April 1901 and he looks to be about 4-5 in the photo, so that means the photo was taken around 1905-06. It is possible that Vernie is in this photo with her parents and some siblings and nieces and nephews. She would have been 16-17 years old, so I think she may be the 4th person from the left in the back row. But I’m just guessing.

A Verna Henson married M. M. Borden on December 2, 1906 in Garland, Arkansas but I don’t know if this was our Vernie. I can’t find record of this couple after marriage.

By 1910 US Census she has been married to Robert Elmer Lloyd for 2 years, but I can’t find record of their marriage. He is a clerk at a grocery store and they live in Crawford County, Arkansas.

Her first child, Elliot Lloyd, is born 7 days after the census was taken on April 29, 1910. He died June 14, 1911 and his Find A Grave memorial is here.

Her second child James Elmer Lloyd was born November 13, 1912. He married Pauline Bailey on October 28, 1934. They had several children, the first named after his mother. He served in the Navy in World War II. He died in Arkansas on December 9, 1997 and his Find A Grave memorial is here.

Vernie’s third child Virginia Lloyd was born March 1, 1917 and died February 16, 1919. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.

The family is enumerated on the 1920 US Census on January 6. The family lives in Sebastian County, Arkansas and Robert is a salesman at a grocery store. Vernie died less than a month later on February 5, 1920 at age 30. Her Find A Grave memorial here.

Robert Elmer Lloyd married Fannie Harwood on April 11, 1921, and they remained in Sebastian County Arkansas on the 1930 and 1940 US Census. They had no children. Robert died August 31, 1955 and his Find A Grave memorial is here.
