  Migration of Jesse Foulke Family

Jesse Foulke was born on 18 Sept 1805 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He was the 10th child and the 4th son of Judah and Sarah McCarty Foulke. At the time of his birth they were associated with the Richland mm in Bucks County. On the 22nd day of February 1831 Jesse and Mary Yost made their intention to marry known to the members of Short Creek mm in Harrison County, Ohio where they were married in a ceremony at the meeting house on the 30th of March 1831. The record of the marriage and the list of the witnesses are included in the minutes of the meeting. Jesse and Mary Yost were married for 9 years when Mary died in March 1840 in Highland County, Ohio. Jesse and Mary did not have any children.

Jesse and Mary Baker were married in Highland County, Ohio at the Clear Creek mm on 28th of April 1843 which was Mary's home meeting at the time. According to the 1850 US Census on October 3rd they were living on a farm in Harrison County, Ohio. At the time they had all five of their children living with them, John Baker was 6 and the youngest, Amasa, was 1.

According to records, sometime in the fall of 1852 the family moved from Harrison County to the Hamilton County, Indiana area. They are shown to be a part of the Fall Creek mm in Madison County, Indiana which was close to Hamilton County. So, it is possible they were actually living in Hamilton County but were attending the Madison County meeting. According to the Short Creek mm records they requested a transfer to Fall Creek mm in Indiana on on May 20th 1852 and the certificate was granted on June 24, 1852. According to Fall Creek mm records they received the certificate from Short Creek on Aug 12, 1852.

At some point, and it may be the 1852 time period, Jesse purchased 285 acres of farmland in the southwestern portion of Jackson Township, Hamilton County, Indiana. At some point they built a large brick farm house and a huge bank barn. This barn was later home to various meetings, some of which, reportedly concerned Spiritualism. This land, which is shown on an 1880 map as the Estate of Jesse Foulke, was on both sides of what is today Anthony Road south of 236th Street.

In about 1868 Jesse and Mary rented the farm to their sons George and Amasa and they moved to Westfield. Son Amasa was married to Lucetta Carlisle on August 1, 1868 and Jesse and Mary had a house built for them somewhere on the farm. I belive this house was built on 236th Street just east of Anthony Road. This house would later be referred to as the "Tennant House". In August 1870 Jesse and Mary were living in Westfield, Hamilton county and it was reported in a newspaper article that they were having a new house built in Westfield. Son George was living with Amasa and Lucetta according to the 1870 census. Lucetta was killed by a gunshot wound on Novemeber 16 1873 and died in this Tennant House.

Amasa was tried for the murder of Lucetta and was found guilty in the first trial and sentened to life in prison. He was able to get a new trial and in that one he was found not guilty and set free on 14 February 1875. Both Jesse and Mary, along with George and several other relatives and friends testified during this second trial.

At some point around late 1873 or 1874 Jesse and Mary moved back to the farm in Jackson Township and lived there until the death of Jesse on the 18th day of February 1875. It seems to me that the stress of the trial took its toll on Jesse and probably contributed to his death. According to newspaper accounts he had been in feeble health for several years and he had quite a bit of trouble during the trial. According to one account he died of a hemorrhage of the lungs.

Reportedly after Jesse's death Mary continued to live on the farm for a few years but then moved in with some of her children. The farm became part of the estate of Jesse and was divided up. The main farm on the west side of Anthony Road which consisted of 102.64 acres and the farm of son George was listed at 73.32 acres, this farm was located at the southeast corner of Anthony Road and 236th street. The rest of the property, which was located on the east side of Anthony Road, south of 236th Street was divided between son J. B. Foulke at 73.32 acres and daughter Sarah Ann, at 36.96 acres.

The George Foulke Farm later consisted of 108 acres (The original George Foulke Farm of about 68 acres, plus the 40 acres that had belonged to his sister Sarah Ann)

By 1922 the original 285 acre farm of Jesse Foulke was divided as follows: 102 acres belonging to Alfred Graham, 108.61 acres belonging to Mary F. Foulke and 47.50 acres belonging to M. H. Foulke, who was the son of J. B. Foulke.

From Image:
Last week, as our forms were on the press, we made room for, and published as a rumor, the death of Jesse M. Foulke, from internal hemorrhage. The report was but too true, and it is this week our painful task to confirm it. Mr. Foulke was about seventy years of age, and had been in feeble health for several years. During his attendance at court as a witness in the recent trial of his son, he was so weak as to be scarcely able to stand up in giving his testimony. And immediately after returning home he was attacked and Thursday of last week died. Mr. F. was a native of Pennsylvania, and first settled in Ohio, from whence he moved to this county settling on the farm where he died, we believe. He was esteemed as one of our best citizens, and his death is regretted by scores of warm friends throughout the county. We have been unable to get any reliable data as to his life and services, and would be obliged to any one acquainted with the facts to furnish them for use in our columns.
