However, in the 1910 federal census, in Paint Township, Somerset County, William’s wife’s name was given as Verdie, which could be a nickname for Bertha but she was aged 38 (or born circa 1872, not 1866). They had been married one year, with one child. By 1920, William was enumerated in Windber, Somerset County as a boarder in the household of Frank Farr. His marital status was given as married, but no wife was with him.  And, he had no occupation listed.  William’s fourth wife was Arminta CRISSMAN, the daughter of Nathan and Elmira Crissman of Napier Township, Bedford County.  Arminta was born in 1869 and the year of her marriage to Wiliam, circa 1921, is based on her age at the time of her first marriage, which was given as 51 in the 1930 census, where she was a widow. One must then conclude that William’s third wife Bertha either died or they were divorced around 1920 or some time before.  Bertha Barefoot was not found in the 1920 federal census index (nor has she been found in any early censuses as either Bertha Zook or Bertha McCleary).  Complicating matters even further is the fact that in the 1920 census Arminta Crissman was enumerated living alone, age 50, marital status “widow,” meaning she was married first before age 51, contradicting the 1930 census!  Since her surname was given as Crissman it is highly unlikely that she was a widow. The enumerator may not have asked her marital status and just assumed that she was a widow because of her age. Arminta died 27 June 1964 in Huntington County, Pennsylvania at age 95, according to the above referenced genealogy of James Barefoot, Sr.

                531       i.    Stella P.6 KISTLER was born 24 September 1872 in Fairfield County, Ohio.

      Some time around 1884 Zachariah married first Belle HOLMES who in 1880 was the wife of William B. Holmes, a bookkeeper for a restaurant in Columbus. Belle was born 7 April 1844 in Columbus and died 19 September 1900 in Columbus at age 56. She was buried in Green Lawn Cemetery.   Circa 1903 Zachariah then married Anna M. KUNZ who was born 13 February 1864 in Ohio, the daughter of Fred and Margaret (Schell) Kunz of Germany. She had daughters Emila P., born circa 1895, and Frances M., born circa 1897, based on ages likely from a previous marriage although the girl’s surnames were given as Kistler in the 1910 census. There is some census identity confusion with Zacharia Kistler in that census year. A Zachria Kistler, age 63, a widow, doing odd jobs, was living on Second Street in Ward 7 of Columbus with his widowed mother Rebecca and widowed sister Jennie Shonting. This enumeration was made between the16th and 18th of April. There was also a Zacharjous Kistler on James Street, Ward 7, age 61, a stationary engineer, with wife Anna M. and two teenage girls, Emila P., a machine operator in a shoe factory, and Frances M. This enumeration was recorded a week later between the 23rd and 25th of April.  Despite the differences in spelling of the first name and the slight difference in age, this was likely the same person, particularly based on the occupation of engineer. It is perhaps possible that Zachariah and Anna married some time in the week between the two enumerations.  Another curious fact is that  Zachariah was enumerated in the household of his daughter Grace in the 1930 federal census, but Anna was not listed in the household. However, when she died 26 September 1937 in Springfield, Clark County, Ohio at age 73 her marital status was given as married, and husband's name as Z. T. Kistler. Where Anna may have been living in 1930 is not known. She was buried  28 September 1937 in Green Lawn Cemetery.

     193.  Walter Augustus5 BAREFOOT (Samuel Ross4, Job Palmer3, Benjamin2, Samuel1) was born 23 July 1857 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  He died 19 June 1897 in Cambridge City, Wayne County, Indiana at age 39 of consumption, known as tuberculosis today.  Walter was buried 21 June 1897 in Riverside Cemetery in Cambridge City.

     Walter worked as a carpenter, lantern switch operator and poultry shipper.  He attended the Methodist Episcopalian Church in Cambridge City,  and at his death was a member of Cambridge Lodge No. 9, Knights of Pythias; Captain of Uniform Rank No. 65, Wayne Lodge No. 17, I.O.O.F; and Hormah Encampment No. 11.

     Walter married Anna Elizabeth LEWELLEN, daughter of Benjamin Franklin and Harriet (McClain) Lewellen, 4 August 1883 in Farmland, Randolph County, Indiana. Her name was spelled “Luellen” on the Circuit Court record of the marriage, but the correct spelling was “Lewellen,” although some in the family used the former spelling as well as Lewellyn. Anna was born 30 June 1862 in Farmland, Randolph County.  Her death certificate lists date of birth as 30 January 1862; however, the headstone on her grave is marked 30 June 1862.  In the censuses of 1900 and 1910 Anna, a widow, and her children resided in White River Township, Randolph County, Indiana. By 1917 she was an invalid and inmate in the Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) Home in Greensburg, Decatur County, Indiana and it was there she died 16 March 1935 at age 72 of heart disease.  Anna was buried 18 March 1935 in Riverside Cemetery.

     Known children of Walter Augustus5 BAREFOOT and Anna Elizabeth LEWELLEN, all born in Cambridge City, Wayne County, Indiana, were as follows:

          +   593       i.    Ross Franklyn6 BAREFOOT, born 2 April 1889; married Hazel Dora GIMBEL.

                595     iii.    Mabel L. BAREFOOT was born 18 December 1892. She died 16 May 1964 in Wayne County, Indiana at age 71 and was buried in Riverside Cemetery, Cambridge City, Wayne County. A story passed down in the family was that Mabel's husband, Will ANSON, left her shortly after World War II and remarried, however there is some evidence that he may have died, leaving her a widow.  In the 1920 federal census for Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts,  there was a William H. Anson, age 32, born in Ohio, an auto inspector in a body shop, lodging in a home in that city with wife Mabel, age 27, born in Indiana. This is very likely Will and Mabel, based on ages and places of birth. In the 1930 federal census, Mabel was a roomer in a private home in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, age 37, born in Indiana, working as a cashier in a drug store. Her marital status was given as widow. It is possible that Mabel was divorced and used widow as her marital status in order to avoid the stigma that “divorcee” held in that time, but no William or Will Anson with the correct age or birth place was found in the 1930 census index, and he indeed may have died leaving her a widow.  In 1934, Mabel moved to Cambridge City, Indiana to help her elderly grandmother, Barbara Barefoot.

 

     196.  Elam Lemon5 BAREFOOT (Samuel Ross4, Job Palmer3, Benjamin2, Samuel1) was born 20 June 1865 in Pennville, Wayne County, Indiana.  He died 20 September 1946 in Cowan, Delaware County, Indiana at age 81, and was buried 22 September 1946 in Riverside Cemetery, Cambridge City, Wayne County, Indiana.

The cause of death was coronary thrombosis due to arteriosclerosis.  He was buried 5 July 1937 in Riverside Cemetery.  John was the son of Joseph N. and Mary (Singlebaugh) Dodson according to one source. But the 1900 census has a John C. Dodson with Joseph N. and Emma Dodson in Troy Township, Perry County, Indiana, with that John C., born in August 1869 in Indiana. Emma was born in Kentucky in April 1952 and has had 5 children, all listed. (In later censuses John’s mother’s place of birth was given as Kentucky.) An ancestry.com source gives Joseph’s full name as Joseph Nevil Dodson and his wife as Emma Gengelbach whom he married 11 April 1868. More research is needed to verify the identity of John C. Dodson’s parents.
