WINSLOW PARKER TOLLE6 (Jonathan Jr5; Jonathan4; Roger3; Tobias2; Roger1)

Winslow Parker Tolle, son of Henrietta (Harn) and Jonathan Tolle Jr, was born between 1800-1810, probably in Mason County, Kentucky. It is commonly believed that he was the son of Henrietta Harn but Jonathan's first wife Elizabeth Henderson has not been eliminated either, mainly because we do not know the exact birthdate of Winslow. The family moved to Bourbon County, Kentucky, and that is where Winslow Parker married Elizabeth Bradley on 20 Oct 1829. His father signed the bond with him, both making their mark. Elizabeth's parents are still undetermined, but there is a possiblity that her father was either Elisha or Layton Bradley. Soon after this marriage, they showed up on the 1830 census of Pike County, Missouri. They had four children, and then before 1840 Elizabeth died. Winslow was on the 1840 census of Pike County, Missouri as one male with 4 male children. On 12 Nov 1840, in Pike County, he was married again to Malinda Hughes. They were married by J.H. Hughes, Minister. His name appeared as Towl on this record. Malinda was the daughter of Mary (?) amd John Hughes. Winslow was on of six bondsman for the estate of his father-in-law, John Hughes in 1846. He moved to Pike County, Illinois sometime before 1850 where he was on the census. The two Pike Counties are opposite each other, separated by the Mississippi River, which is the state line at that point. Malinda and Winslow had six more children between 1851-1854. She died before 1854. Winslow married once again, this time on 6 Jun 1857 to Sarah J. Hall in Pike County, Missouri. The service was performed by Benjamin F. Jacobs JP, and on this record his name is spelled Toll. Two more children were added to his family. Winslow hasn't been located on the 1860 or 1870 census as yet, but the minor children of his second marriage seemed to have been scattered after the death of Melinda. Some were found in Warren County, Illinois in the homes of other people. After no trace for many years, Winslow turned up on the 1880 census of Livingston County, Missouri. He was listed as age 88 (should have been about 71) in the home of his son William, suffering from Apoplexy. He died on 11 Oct 1881 at Jamesport, in Daviess County, Missouri. He is buried in the Gee's Cemetery, in the Southwest part of Grundy County, Missouri. His tombstone is adorned with a Masonic emblem. When this compiler visited that cemetery in the Summer of 1987, I found many broken stones, and the one belonging to Winslow Parker Tolle was broken off, and lying nearly buried under the grass. Some biographical notes give his occupation as a farmer, buyer and seller of livestock, and saw mill worker. He was a member of the Christian Church. On 27 Dec 1898, his widow Sarah J. filed for a widow's pension for his service in the Indian Wars. It said that he served in Capt. Douglas's Missouri Militia and Capt. Loncoln's 4th Illinois Volunteers, but there are no dates of service shown on this record. The claim says that he died 3 May 1882. There are many conflicts in the records regarding the birth and death dates for Winslow, and his age at death. Some branches of his descendats go also by the TOLE and TOLL spellings.

ELIJAH H. TOLLE6 (Jonathan Jr5; Jonathan4; Roger3; Tobias2; Roger1)

Elijah H. Tolle, son of Henrietta (Harn) and Jonathan Tolle Jr, was born about 1811. Although it is strongly believed that he was the son of these parents, more proof is still needed. In Franklin County, Kentucky, there is a deed for him dated 19 Oct 1848. He hasn't been located by name on the 1850 census, but he was listed in the 1860 and 1870 census of Franklin County, Kentucky. In 1870 he was listed as age 59, and a cabinetmaker. Nothing further is currently known of him or his family.
