CALEB TOLLE7 (James6; William5; Jonathan4; Roger3; Tobias2; Roger1) and his mother (Lovey H. (Tolle) Tolle6; Reuben Hampton5; Jonathan4; Roger3; Tobias2; Roger1)

Caleb Tolle was born 25 Nov 1837 in Brown County, Illinois. He was son of Lovey H. (Tolle) and James Tolle. Caleb served in the Civil War (Union) in Company E, 16th Illinois Infantry. According to the information on Caleb's service report, he was age 23, height 5' 7 1/2", hair light, eyes blue, complexion fair, marital status single, occupation laborer. He enlisted 24 May 1861 at Quincy, Illinois. There is a marriage a short time later in Buchanan County, Missouri of a Caleb to Mary Chilacothe on 26 Dec 1861. There is no proof that I have found that this is the same Caleb, but I do not know of any other of the same name, age, or proximity that it could be. He must have been wounded in the war because on 24 Aug 1866 he applied for an invalid pension (App# 114507 - Cert# 90195) After the War, Caleb married on 7 Feb 1867 in Grundy County, Missouri to Elizabeth Cowhick. Elizabeth had first been married to Andrew Burr who died in the Civil War. She was next married to a man named Murrian and had one daughter, Mary Catherine Murrain. She was called Elizabeth Murrain on the marriage record. Mr Murrian had also died in the Civil War. She was the daughter of Eleanor H. (Constant) and Elisha Adamson Cowhick. Caleb and Elizabeth had 5 children. Caleb deid at the age of 38 years, 9 months, and 9 days on 4 Sep 1875 and is buried in Section 36, Trenton Twp, Grundy County, Missouri. Elizabeth married again to Asa Moore on 20 Dec 1878 in Grundy County, and they had one more daughter, Cynthia Ann Moore and Asa Moore also died. Elizabeth married for the fifth time to Francis Marion Harper in 1882 and they had more children. Those known are Chris, Nancy, and J.F. Harper. Elizabeth died on 8 Aug 1916 in Garfield County, Oklahoma at the age of 72 years. She had a total of 14 children, and 8 were living at the time of her death. She was buried in the Hunter Cemetery, in Hunter, Oklahoma.

The children of Elizabeth (Cowhick) and Caleb Tolle were:

  • WILLIAM THOMAS TOLLE8 born 7 Oct 1866 in Grundy County, Missouri; married 25 Mar 1889 to Cora Christina Myers. Cora was born 1 Oct 1871 in Lucas County, Iowa, daughter of Isabella (?) and William H. Myers. William and Cora had 14 children surnamed TOLLE: Rhoda A., Minnie J., George Theodore, Edna Leora, Ida Hazel, Lucy E., Gladys Jane, Caleb Harry, Violet, Nancy, Celia Ann, William Henry, Ernest Ervin, and John Albert. By 1900 they were living in in Oklahoma. Cora died on 23 Nov 1935 and William died 4 Jan 1946. They are buried in the Mucinch cemetery in Canton Oklahoma.
  • HARRIET SUSAN TOLLE8 aka "Hat", born 19 Mar 1870; married on 18 Oct 1886 in Garden City, Kansas to James Fleming Harper. James was her step-brother, and he was born 20 Oct 1865 in Cumberlin County, Kentucky, son of Nancy (Page) and Francis Marion Harper. Susan and James had 10 children surnamed HARPER: Sarah, Christopher, Caleb, Maggie, Myrtle Elizabeth, James Fleming, Julia, Jessie Robert, Allen, and Willis. The family went to Beaver County, Oklahoma by covered wagon in the Fall of 1907, and remained there the rest of their lives. James died on 1 Apr 1944 and Harriet died on 25 Mar 1950 and. They are buried in the Knowles cemetery in Beaver County, Oklahoma. Another reference shay she is buried in the Kiowa cemetery, Row A, space 21. Does this cemetery have two names?

Caleb and Carrie had 5 children surnamed TOLLE: Lucy Jane, Mary, Archie, Bernie, and Susan. The last record that I have for him is the 1920 census of Beaver County, Oklahoma and according to his sister's obit, he lived in Grand Junction, Colorado in 1950.
  • JANE A. TOLLE8 born about 1875 in Grundy County, Missouri. aka "Jennie" or "Jeannie Ann".

They had 5 children surnamed GRIFFIN: Harry F., Florence; John, William, and Florie Lucille. Jane died about the time of the birth of the last child, and the baby was raised by someone else.

Elizabeth Ann Toll was born about 1844, daughter of Malinda (Hughes) and Winslow Parker Tolle. She was listed as age 6 in the 1850 census of Pike County, Missouri. Her mother died while whe was a child, and she was found at age 16 in the home of her Aunt and Uncle Amaretta (Hughes) and John C. Beasley in the 1860 census of Warren County, Illinois.

Raised in Calhoun County, Illinois by foster parents Huldah (Walton) & Ezekial Henderson Burns from the age of 2 years. His death certificate says his mother was named Elizabeth Ann Toll. He married Mary Ellen Kitson (1863-1938) and they had nine children surnamed TOLL: Effie Mae, Lester William, Ada Viola, Gatia Iona, Lora Bell, Willard Leslie, WIllis Leland, Inez Izola, and James Parker.
