Foulke Family Points of Interest, Hamilton County, Indiana  (Google Custom Map)
 

Top of Page

Jesse and Mary Baker Foulke were both born in Pennsylvania and by April 1843 when they married they had moved to Highland County, Ohio.  The couple had  5 children in Ohio and Jesse was listed as a farmer, and the value of their farm was listed as $2200.00 on the 1850 US Census in Harrison County, Ohio.  According to a Hamilton County history book, Jesse was also a Cooper, but after coming to Hamilton County he devoted all his time to farming. 

In the fall of 1850, when the children ranged in age from 6 to 1 year old, the family made the move from Short Creek Township, Harrison County, Ohio to Jackson Township, Hamilton County, Ohio.  Harrison County is located in the east-central portion of Ohio and Short Creek Township is in the south-east corner of the county.  Hamilton County, Indiana is located in the center of the state just north of Indianapolis.  The family traveled a distance of about 300 miles on the journey to their new home.  When they first arrived they resided near the small town of Cicero. 

About 1852 the family purchased 285 acres in southwestern Jackson Township.  This land is located on both sides of present-day Anthony Road south of 236th Street.  The portion on the western side of Anthony Road consists of 102 acres this is where Jesse and Mary built their home and barns.  The remainder of the land on the east side of Anthony Road stretched between Anthony Road and Deming Road along 236th Street. In 1880 236th Street was named Cicero & Hinkle Creek Gravel Rd.  Anthony Road is located about 5 miles west of the town of Cicero.  You can see the layout of the land on the maps shown below.  This 285 acres became the Jesse Foulke Farm and was home to Jesse, Mary and their 5 children.

In the 1860 Census  the value of the farm is listed at $12,000.00.  The entire family was living on the Jesse Foulke Farm. Also living with the family was Amasa Baker, father of Mary, who was 79 years old at the time.  

In 1864 the oldest son, John Baker married Mary Hodson on 2 April in Hamilton County.  John Baker would later have a portion of his parents farm and also land in Adams Township. 

The year 1866 shows the acreage of the Jesse Foulke farm to be 284 acres according to the map below.  Also in the 1860s the huge barn on the Jesse Foulke Farm hosted several large meetings and gatherings including some where the subject of Spiritualism was discussed and debated.  Other meetings were held in this barn during this period including religious meetings of various kinds.  On the opposite side of Anthony Road at the time was located the Mt. Pleasant Church and cemetery where religious gatherings were held.  The cemetery remains but the church is long gone. 

Daughter Sarah Ann married William Francis McShane on 26 February, 1868 in Hamilton County.  Sarah would later have a portion of the Jesse Foulke farm.

Sometime around 1868 Jesse & Mary rented their farm to sons George and Amasa and had moved to the Westfield vicinity where it was reported in August of 1870 they were building a new house.  Jesse was listed as a retired farmer on the 1870 Census and the value of the real estate (in Jackson Township) was $18,000.00.  This Census shows them to be residing in Washington Township. 

On 16 November 1873, Lucetta Foulke is murdered.  There is much controversy to this day about whether Amasa shot her.  From early 1874 through February of 1875 Amasa stood trial for the charge of murder.  The first trial in 1874 found him guilty.  He petitioned for, and was granted, a new trial which took place in February 1875 at which he was found not Guilty.  Several of the family members, including Jesse, Mary and George testified at the second trial.  This trial had to have been a tragic event in the family and Jesse, George, John Baker and others supplied the bond for Amasa. 

George Foulke and Narcissa Wilson were married on 19 January 1875 in Hamilton County.  Narcissa was the daughter of Howland Embree Wilson and Ruth Stanley.  George was 29 years old at the time and Narcissa was 19 at the time.  It is supposed that George and Narcissa lived in a home on the Jesse Foulke Farm following their marriage.  The George Foulke farm came into existence about this time.  Their only child, Jesse Alvin Foulke was born 6 November 1876.  Jesse was about 8 months old when his mother passed away on 30 June 1877. 

Amasa was given the not guilty verdict on 14 February 1875 in the Court House in Noblesville.  Four days later Jesse Foulke died of an internal hemorrhage.  According to news reports Mary Stayed on the farm for two or three years and then lived the rest of her life with her children.  In the 1880 US Census Mary is living with son Amasa and his wife Belle Linder Foulke in Marshall County, Iowa. 

On the 1880 Plat Map of Jackson Township below shows the Jesse Foulke farm has been divided up in the following manner:  the 102 acres on the west side of Anthony Road, the home of Jesse and Mary is now listed as the J. Foulk Est.  On the east side of Anthony Road are from the north:  G. Foulk (George Foulke), 73.32 acres; S. McShane (Sarah Ann Foulke McShane), 36.96 acres; and J. B. Foulk (John Baker Foulke) 73.32 acres.  The total acreage of the Jesse Foulke Farm is 286.24.  Son William had died in May of 1877 and left his wife Caroline and daughter Mary G. behind.  Amasa is not shown to have any of the land given to him.  Since I have not been able to locate the probate records as yet for Jesse it is supposed that the 102 acres was sold and the proceeds divided among the heirs, including Amasa and granddaughter Mary G. 

The occupants of the Jesse Foulke Farm were as follows:  Jesse and Mary Baker Foulke, about 1852 to 1877.  The Samuel Brown family purchased the 102 acres in 1877 and lived there until about 1887 when they sold the property to the Alfred Graham family and they lived there until about 1940.  After the death of Alfred the land was sold to Jesse Whisman.  I have no further records of owners beyond this point. 

The maps below, listing the owners of the land of the Jesse Foulke Farm, show some interesting items:
1866:  The entire 284 acres is attributed to J. M. Foulke
1880:  J. Foulke Estate:  10264 acres - G. Foulk 73.32 acres - S. McShane, 36.96 acres and J. B. Foulk, 73.32 acres with a total of 286.24 acres
     - No mention of Amasa or William's family Caroline or Mary G. Foulke
1906:  Alfred Graham, 102 acres; Geo. Foulke, 68.01 acres; Mary F. Foulke, 40 acres; Jno. B. Foulke, 74.50 acres
     -  Could this Mary F. Foulke be a misprint and it should have been Mary G. Foulke, daughter of William?
     -  Daughter Sarah had died on 4 July of 1906 and the land that was shown to be in her name in 1880 is now in the name of Mary F. or G. Foulke
1919:  Alfred Graham, 102 acres; Mary F. Foulke, 108.61 acres (The 68 acres and the 40 acres from the 1906 map); Vernie Foulk [Foulke], ID0108, 72.75 acres (Wife of Marvin Foulke, son of  John Baker and Mary Foulke)
     -  John Baker Foulke and his son Marvin were both still living at this time

1922:  Alfred Graham, 102 acres; Mary F. Foulke, 108.61 acres; M. H. Folk [Marvin Hodson Foulke], 47.50 acres [misprint? - Should be closer to 73 acres]


Today the location of the large brick home and the huge barn of the Jesse Foulke Farm is a field and all traces of their existence is gone.  From the pictures below the house was large and substantial and the barn was indeed a very large bank barn.  These pictures were taken in 1986 and the next research trip I took in the early part of this century showed that it was all gone. 

Now, to the George Foulke Farm.  As was mentioned above the farm probably came into existence in the period around 1868 to 1870 when Jesse and Mary had rented their farm to their sons George and Amasa.  According to my father there was a tenant house on this piece of property located east of the big farm house.  This home could possibly have been the original home of the George Foulke family until the new house was built around 1890 or 1892.

S1 Newspaper Article, "Most Famous Railroad in All History" Noblesville Ledger (Noblesville, Indiana), 8 June 1916, page 1, Col. 3. newspapers.com, accessed 30 Jan 2018. Doc4620.pdf


Page 1:
MOST FAMOUS RAILROAD IN ALL HISTORY
STATIONS LOCATED ON RURAL ROUTE 29, OUT OF WESTFIELD - ONE INCIDENT TOLD
R. R. MADE ROUTE FAMOUS
People Still Have Some of the Characteristics of Fathers -- Route 35's Next Move Awaited

Editor Ledger:
Deming was the scene of the last line of defense presented for Route 29, in its contest with Route 35, and from Deming, let the judges now take their way, in though, and follow the line of Jay Gunn's route, . . . over territory bristling with history and covered now by happy homes.
. . .
The next farm is as well known perhaps as any farm in the community. It is occupied now by Mrs. Alfred Graham and family, but it was formerly the Jesse Foulke farm. The big barn on the Foulke farm was the scene in the early days of many exciting scenes. It was here that some big public meetings were held, including debates on religious topics, and the early debates as to spiritualism. William W. Conner, of Noblesville, formerly had the habit of coming out to pit his wits against the best brains of the community, and many exciting controversies took place in the big barn. Then, across the road, hidden away from sight now, is the old Mt. Pleasant cemetery, and the site of the old church, where great religious occasions happened fifty and more years ago. Orators of that day did not mince words and they did not save their strength by talking by "main strength and awkwardness," as they expressed it, but they could make an audience rise to heights of exaltation.
The route reaches the Cicero-Sheridan road, soon after passing the Graham farm, which is one of the finest and best cared for farms in the community. . .

Page 7, col. 2 & 3:
Route 29 is made up in part of the route of the most famous railroad in history, the Underground Railroad. This road led from the South to Westfield, and Westfield at that time was perhaps more widely known than any other town in Indiana, even including the capital. Westfield was a station, and the route then ran through the Tomlinson neighborhood, by Chester, on north, to Bakers Corner, to Boxley, then through Tipton county to New London, then on, by way of the North Star to Canada, and freedom. About 1856, this Underground Railroad was in full operation. The trains were smokeless and noiseless, but they ran day and especially at night. For Example, the Rhoads family, a colored family, whose son, John Rhoads, later was a character well known in the county and especially at Deming, came up from the South and located just southeast of Bakers Corner, near what was later the Jones Sawmill. The Southern planters located the colored family and came after them. The old man Rhoads' name was John, too, and his wife's name was Lou Ann. There were three girls, Jane Ann, Sallie Ann and Phoebe Ann. The slave driver located the house and he and his fellow slave hunters surrounded the house, but windows and doors in the old log house were barred. Lou Ann Rhoads was full of plans, and she used a straw tick, burning a little straw at a time, to keep the fugitive slave hunters from coming down the chimney. The old man Rhoads struck at one of the men who tried to get in the door, and the slave drive left some of his hair and blood on the door jam. The colored family kept the drivers at bay until morning, and then some of the Bakers and Hodsons and other neighbors heard the disturbance and rallied to save the negroes.
Then it was agreed to go to Noblesville and have a trial of the case. They put the negroes all in a covered wagon, and started to Noblesville. They got down to old Tile Factory Corner and then some of the white men who were interested in the freedom of the negroes said the negroes should be tried at Westfield, instead of Noblesville. The slave owners said, no, they should go to Noblesville and one of them said he would shoot anybody who tried to change the course of the caravan, for it was a caravan by by this time, for the community had been aroused. Daniel Jones, who lived at Westfield, had arrived, and he jumped up on the wagon, took the lines and said, Let him shoot! Asa Beals was also present and he was an orator of some force, and he continued a speech to the people as they journeyed on toward Westfield. Westfield was finally reached, and everybody including the "innocent" Jones and Beals, looked in the wagon for the colored family but they had "all leaked out." Mr. Moon, father of Anna Maria Beals, was one of the men who helped the negroes "leak" from the wagon:
Many other tragic incidents are told of he Underground Railroad days, but now they are merely laughable, showing kind f stuff of which the railroaders of that day were made and they give a distinct hale of honor to all who had a part in the organization, financing, building and management of the famous old Underground Railroad.

   Another estate of interest to the people generally, was that of Alfred Graham and his wife, Nellie Eudaly Graham.

George Foulke Died from Complication of Diseases
George Foulke, aged 66, a well known farmer of Jackson township, died at his home about two miles east of Bakers Corner, at 11 o'clock Thursday night, of a complication of diseases. It has been known for some time that he was in a precarious condition, but his death comes as a shock to a large number of friends and acquaintances who were unaware of his serious condition.
Mr. Foulke had spent the greater portion of his life in the neighborhood where he died, and was recognized as a man of sterling integrity, a good business man, and a model farmer. He was born in Ohio, but his father, the late Jesse Foulke, came to this state when it was a wilderness and settled in the vicinity of Bakers Corner nearly sixty years ago.
He is survived by a wife, three daughters and two sons. The children are Mrs. Oscar Robbins, Mrs. Dr. S. C. Phillips, Mrs. Robert Ross and Alvin and Arthur Foulke.
The funeral took place Monday the services being conducted by Rev. Lindley Reagan. Burial at Crown View Cemetery.

COUSINS ELOPE.
Pretty miss Frank Revis and Her Cousin are Missing.

     Pretty Miss Frank Revis, daughter of D. W. Revis, a well known farmer living four miles west of Cicero, and her first cousin, whose name is also Revis, eloped last Saturday night.  The presumption is that they are married, but nothing has been heard from them since they left. 
   Last fall Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Revis went to their old home in North Carolina to make an extended visit.  Upon their return they were accompanied by two nephews of Mr. Revis, both of whom ere young men o f good address and pleasing manners.  One of them made his home at the Revis residence west of Cicero, and secured employment on the farm of George Foulke near by.  Miss Frank Revis is a winsome young lady, a little more than eighteen years of age, and an attachment sprung up between she and her cousin.  Their friendship ripened into love and the first intimation that any one had of their prospective marriage was from an inquiry made by the young man who desired to know if there was any state in the union that permitted cousins to marry.
     Young Revis, Miss Revis and a relative drove to Cicero last Saturday night to attend a show.  When the south-bound train, due here at 9:30 o'clock, passed through that place the young couple bid adieu to their friends, boarded it and left.  When the father of the young woman was notified of the elopement he was very angry and made an effort to have the Indianapolis police apprehend them.  The only information secured by the capital city authorities concerning them was that a couple answering their description had inquired about the price of tickets to North Carolina.  The officers refused to molest the young people until Revis had issued a warrant for their arrest.  This action necessarily delayed the matter until next day and by that time the irate father had quieted down and accepted the situation philosophically, agreeing to receive the couple with open arms if they had really been successful in their efforts to marry.  It is believed that they are not in North Carolina.
