Killmer or Kilmer Family

There have been many variations of the finally Anlicized surname Kilmer.... Kuhlmer, Jilimer, Kuehimer, Julmer, Kolemer, Kolemere, Koolman, Killman, Kimmer, Kilimer, Kilimore plus a few more. A final resolution, made in 1840 by a frustrated school teacher in Gallatinville, funneled all of these into one common spelling and Kilmer was the lone suriviver. Of course we know Killmer is also used and probably other varistions. Could this explain the name spelled many ways.

Some of the family spelled Kilmer with two LL’s or L

In hunting for my Kilmer family in TN, I came upon this Killem with soundex this name could sound like Kilmer.

“TENNESSE GENEALOGICA RECORDS Records of Early Settlers From State and County Archives by Edythe Ruchre Whitley

Page 187 date 1842 Bledsoe County : Minute Docker, 1841-1846: Page 21 Settlement with court, James Killem and A, M,. Anderson, admins, of the estate of John Henninger dec. Settlement with Isaac Robeson, guardian of the minor heirs of Wm. Lee dec. Page 24; Road overseers were Huge Pike, Chas,. Loving and James L Killem. Could this man be Killmer too.

The first record that found of a Kilmer in Tennessee is here

1836 Marion County Tax List

District 1 is near Bledsoe Co. Line

Joseph Elliott, William Elliott

Thomas Earle

Martin Heard

District 3

James Kilmer, Jacob Kilmer

It is unknown who these Kilmer are for after this Tax List they are not found in Tennessee. Could this Jacob or James be the father of my John Kilmer who married Mary Meador Heard. This is unknown at this time. I do know the Heard and Elliott family are related to Mary Meador Heard. The man name Thomas Earle could be family too.

Facts that I do know

Jeremiah Early Kilmer had Bible in it states that Mary Meador Heard m’d John Kilmer. Where and when is unknown for the Courthouse records in Marion County, Tennessee were burn during the Civil War.

What do know is:

John Kilmer b 1790/1800 (GA or TN or ?) d aft 1835 could have died in AR or TN m c 1832-33 in Marion Co. TN. or county near there to Mary Meador Heard

Mary Meadows/Meador Heard b 1800/10 GA d aft 1880 pos Parker Co. TX. Last seen was in the 1880 Census in Johnson Co. TX living in the household with son Early Kilmer and family.

By the preponderant of the law

I think that Mary Meador Heard parents were Jesse and Margaret Hose/Hayes Heard

Jesse and Margaret Heard had daughter name Polly Heard aka Mary Meadors Heard

POLLY HEARD(JESSE, JOHN, STEPHEN,CHARLES,STEPHEN) b. February 08, 1811, Greenesboro (Greene County), Georgia, or Marion County, Tennessee

1 Jesse came from Greene Co.. GA ca 1811 to Bledsoe Co. because that was the only county at that time.

2. Jesse didn't leave the area the county lines just kept changing so his daughter Mary could have met someone in the Valley to marry.

3. There was James and Jacob Kilmer on a tax list in 1836. Mary is at the right age to get married. My family tradition says Mary’s husband as a J. Kilmer.

4. My Mary Meador Heard was born 1811 in GA/TN.

5. I have copy of land deed for Benjamin Kilmer buying land with Jeremiah Early Heard who may be related t to Mary through marriage. The date for this deed is 1854. I need to find out if anyone knows who brought the land after Jesse and his family moves to MO.

6. Mary Meador Heard Kilmer had two sons who are have the same names as the sons of Jesse and Margaret Heard sons Jeremiah Early and Byram.

7. Jeremiah and Byram is a name that runs in the Meadors family.

Found this story on the net about Sarah Jones Duckworth

Early Kilmer served in Co. D of the 3rd Missouri Cavalry as a Private. I believe he may have served with my (first name unknown) Duckworth who died prior to Oct. 14, 1864 (birthdate of his only child). Mr. Duckworth, according to family legend, was on his way home to check on his pregnant wife who we believe was in either Fulton or Izard Co., Arkansas. His wife was Sarah H. Jones b 1842 MS. She later married Early Kilmer and they moved to Texas a few years later. Found Duckworth, W.W., Confederate, Infantry, 35th Regiment, Arkansas Infantry. who was in

35th Regiment, Arkansas Infantry

35th Infantry Regiment [also called 22nd Regiment] was organized during the summer of 1862 with men from Yell, Sebastian, and Perry counties. It was formerly the 1st (Rector's War Regiment) Arkansas Infantry. The unit was placed in Fagan's and A. T. Hawthorne's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department, and was active at Bayou Fourche and Helena where it reported 75 casualties. Later it saw action at Jenkins' Ferry and in April, 1865, disbanded. Its commanding officers were Colonels James P. King and Henry J. McCord, Lieutenant Colonel John W. Wallace, and Majors John J. Dillard and Mark T. Tatum.

CONFEDERATE MISSOURI TROOPS

3rd Regiment, Missouri Cavalry

3rd Cavalry Regiment was organized during the summer of 1862 with men from Springfield and Newtonia, and Polk County. Many of its members had seen prior service in the Missouri State Guard. It served in Shelby's, C. Green's, and J.B. Clark's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department. The unit fought in Marmaduke's Expedition into Missouri, participated in numerous conflicts in Arkansas, and with Marmaduke, 9 at Helena, and 4 at Bayou Fourche. The regiment lost 2 killed and 5 wounded at Poison Spring, 6 killed and 31 wounded at Jenkin Ferry, and 19 killed and 110 wounded during Price's Expedition. In the spring of 1865 it disbanded. The field officers were Colonel Colton Green, Lieutenant Colonels L.A. Campbell and L.C. Campbell, and Major James Surridge.

Helena;Location: Phillips County; Campaign: Grant’s Operations against Vicksburg (1863); Date(s): July 4, 1863

Principal Commanders: Maj. Gen. Benjamin Prentiss [US]; Lt. Gen. Theophilus H. Holmes [CS] Forces Engaged: District of Eastern Arkansas [US]; District of Arkansas [CS] Estimated Casualties: 1,842 total (US 206; CS 1,636)

Description: Lt. Gen. Theophilus Holmes’s troops attacked Helena in an attempt to relieve pressure on Vicksburg. Although the Rebels had more troops and did initially capture some of the fortifications, the Union forces repelled them. Thus, Helena continued as an important Union enclave in the Trans-Mississippi theater and served as a base for the expedition that captured Little Rock.

Result(s): Union victory

Bayou Forche and Other Names: Little Rock; Location: Pulaski County; Campaign: Advance on Little Rock (1863); Date(s): September 10, 1863

Principal Commanders: Brig. Gen. John W. Davidson [US]; Brig. Gen. John S. Marmaduke. Forces Engaged: Cavalry Division, Army of Arkansas, Arkansas Expedition [US]; District of Arkansas [CS]. Estimated Casualties: Total unknown (US 72; CS unknown)

Description: On September 10, 1863, Maj. Gen. Fred Steele, Army of Arkansas commander, sent Brig. Gen. John W. Davidson’s cavalry division across the Arkansas River to move on Little Rock, while he took other troops to attack Confederates entrenched on the north side. In his thrust toward Little Rock, Davidson ran into Confederate troops at Bayou Fourche. Aided by Union artillery fire from the north side of the river, Davidson forced them out of their position and sent them fleeing back to Little Rock, which fell to Union troops that evening. Bayou Fourche sealed Little Rock’s fate. The fall of Little Rock further helped to contain the Confederate Trans-Mississippi theater, isolating it from the rest of the South.

Result(s): Union victory

Poison Spring; Location: Ouachita County; Campaign: Camden Expedition (1864); Date(s): April 18, 1864

Principal Commanders: Col. James M. Williams [US]; Brig. Gen. John S. Marmaduke and Brig. Gen. Samuel Bell Maxey [CS.] Forces Engaged: Brigade (1,100 men) [US]; Marmaduke’s and Maxey’s Divisions [CS.] Estimated Casualties: 415 total (US 301; CS 114)

Description: Dwindling supplies for his army at Camden forced Maj. Gen. Fred Steele to send out a foraging party to gather corn that the Confederates had stored about twenty miles up the Prairie D’Ane-Camden Road on White Oak Creek. The party loaded the corn into wagons, and on April 18, Col. James M. Williams started his return to Camden. Brig. Gen. John S. Marmaduke’s and Brig. Gen. Samuel B. Maxey’s Confederate forces arrived at Lee Plantation, about fifteen miles from Camden, where they engaged Williams. The Rebels eventually attacked Williams in the front and rear forcing him to retreat north into a marsh where his men regrouped and then fell back to Camden. The Union lost 198 wagons and all the corn.

Result(s): Confederate victory

Jenkins' Ferry; Location: Grant County; Campaign: Camden Expedition (1864); Date(s): April 30, 1864

Principal Commanders: Maj. Gen. Fred Steele [US]; Gen. E. Kirby Smith [CS] Forces Engaged: Department of Arkansas [US]; Army of Arkansas [CS] Estimated Casualties: 964 total (US 521; CS 443)

Description: Maj. Gen. Fred Steele’s forces retreated from Camden after being mauled at Marks’ Mills and Poison Spring. On the afternoon of April 29, the Union forces reached Jenkins’ Ferry and began crossing the Saline River, which was swollen by heavy rain. Rebel forces arrived on the 30th and attacked repeatedly. The Federals repulsed the attacks and finally crossed with all their men and supply wagons, many of which they were compelled to abandon in the swamp north of Saline. The Confederates bungled a good chance to destroy Steele’s army, which after crossing the river, regrouped at Little Rock.

Result(s): Union victory in retreat
