Shared note

Adam Dittemore was born in Green County, Tennessee in 1799, married 5 times and sired 15 children.

He married first to Mary Berger Yeakley and had ten children. She was born in TN and married first to Samuel Yeakley and lived in Orange Co, IN. After his death, she married Adam Dittemore.

Note in following pages from the Byous book says "Adam headed up a party traveling by oxen-drawn covered wagons and went from Indiana to Buchanan Co, MO around 1840", but he was still on the census in Indiana with second wife in 1840, and third marriage was in 1845 also in Indiana, so he must have left after that for Missouri.

He was a very successful farmer both in Indiana and in Missouri, and his crop of sweet potatoes is mentioned in "History of Buchanan County" in 1854.

Adam died of "Black Erysipelas" (a strep infection causing skin lesions), and is buried in Bethel Cemetery, St Joseph, Buchanan Co, Missouri.

Buried in Bethel cemetery DeKalb Road

Samuel Yeakley married Barsheba Dittemore (daughter of John). When Adam decided to make the trek to Missouri, Henry, Elizabeth and their babygirl, George (another son of John) and his family, and others in thefamily joined him. Henry Yeakley and his family were also in the group,and for a time in the early years (1840-1850) Buchanan Co, was reallyloaded with Dittemores and Yeakleys. Some spilled over into Doniphan Co,KS, just across the river from St. Joseph, Mo. (Bethel Cemetery, onDeKalb Road, south of St. Joseph, is the burial place for numerousfamily members. Folks used to say there was nothing on DeKalb road butDittemores and jimpson weed. My gr-grandfather, Henry Dittemore, built atwo-story house on DeKalb road just west of the cemetery. It is not invery good condition now.)
