MR. JAMES RICKETTS

Pioneer Resident and Civil War Veteran Claimed by Death

Large Funeral Monday.

James Ricketts one of Lexington's, oldest, best known and most highly respected citizens died of nervous trouble at his residence Saturday at 4 a. m. Mr. Ricketts had been a sufferer from nerve nervous trouble for the past year and had spent some time in Bloomington hospital hoping to find relief, but in vain. He finally lost his eyesight, which appeared to aggravate the trouble, and finally death came as stated above.

James Ricketts was born Sept. 15, 1844, in the state of Missouri. He came to place when only six years old and has resided here ever since, with the exception of one year spent in Chicago.

At the outbreak of the Civil war, he was one of fifteen young men who volunteered from Lexington in Co. G. 68th. Ill., Infantry. At the expiration of his term he re-enlisted in Co. C. 94th. Ill. Infantry. When that regiment was discharged, he joined the 37th., serving until the discharge of that regiment in 1866. During his last unfortunate Illness he often referred to his experience in the army and to his old comrades.

He was married to Miss Martha Devore, Feb. 22, 1867. To this union were born four children, William of Pekin; Mrs. Lurla Arnold of Bloomington and Oscar and Ray of Lexington; all of whom, together with the wife and seven grandchildren and one brother, John Ricketts, of Beatrice, Neb., survive.

In 1869 Mr. Ricketts was converted and joined the United Brethren church and had always been a faithful member, attending the services of the church long after he became unable to hear the words of the preacher.

Shortly before his death he spoke of being a Christian and that he was un-afraid to die.

Mr. Ricketts was also a member of the G.A.R. [Grand Army of the Republic] post. It was always his request to be buried as a solider, wrapped in the flag he had fought for, and in accordance with his wishes, he was buried with full military honors. The funeral service was held from the U.[nited] B.[rethren] church at 2:30 p. m. Monday. Rev. J. G. Braden, pastor of the church, conducted the services and the body was laid to rest in the Lexington cemetery.

The pallbearers were Sons of Veterans, most of whose fathers had been members of the same company and regiment with Mr. Ricketts. They were H. E. Flesher, Stephen Turnipseed, Frank Davis, W. F. Payne, Frank Dennis and John A. Ashabran.

Those from out of town who attended the funeral services were:

Mr. Louis Moschel, of Pekin, Mr. and Mrs. John Phinney and George Dunkle, of Bloomington, Mr. Jos. Devore and family of Towanda, Mrs. Bert Hibbs of Normal, Newton Devore of Pontiac and Mrs. Ruey Seabert of Peoria.

[4987] According to the (June 4) 1910 Census (Ward 1, Lexington, Illinois), her father was born in Ohio and her mother was born in Virginia. The census shows her as the mother of four children, but only three are listed on the 1910 Census. We surmise that the William, the oldest, was not mentioned as he no longer lived at home.

Obituary:

Mrs. Martha C. Ricketts Answers Summons

Was Well known and Highly Honored Citizen Of Lexington For Many Years

Mrs. Martha C. Ricketts died at her home in Lexington at 7:30 a. m. Tuesday, Dec. 20,1932, following an illness of five days. She was the daughter of Issac and Mariah Devore and was born Dec. 14, 1848, at Washington Court House, Ohio. She had been a resident of this community since she was 10 years old.

Her marriage to James Ricketts occurred on Feb. 21, 1867, and they were the parents of the following children: William R. of Pekin; Oscar E., and Mrs. Luria G. Arnold, Chicago,; and Ray H., Lexington, all of whom survive. Mr. Ricketts preceded his wife in death in 1915.

Mrs. Ricketts had been a leader and active member of the United Brethren church since she was 16 years old. She was also a charter member of the Ladies Aid society.

The funeral will be held at 2:30 p. m. Thursday at the United Brethren Church in charge of the pastor, the Rev. C. D. Smith. Burial will be Lexington cemetery.

-- Lexington Herald Recorder, December 22, 1932

[7563] In the 1900 Census, Oscar's occupation is given as Paper Hanger. His father's obituary in 1915 notes that he lived in Lexington, Illinois.

[517] Ray worked as a carpenter and a mason for the railroad and in town much of his early life until he was asked to take over the family farm. Mary Ruth used to say, "I never agreed to marry a farmer."

Ray was the last member of the family to work the family farm, first turned under plow in 1867. The family owned 300 acres of corn and soybean, and Ray leased additional land until he was too old to work the farm. The family land was then leased to others. His granddaughters Margarete (Peggy) and Linda Ricketts, and Peggy, Linda, and Pat Biddle, eventually inherited the farm. Each set of siblings received half of the farm land. They sold their shares of the land to Conny and Randy who the family had contracted to farm the land for many years after Harold and Mary Ruth could not farm it any longer.

Harold and Mary Ruth sold the farm house itself to Mike, the son of Conny and Randy. Ray and Ruth's daughter Carol Louise got the house in town and passed that onto her daughters. Carol's daughter Pat (and her daughter Adrianne) came back to live in the house for several years during the 1990s, and in May 2002 Pat sold the house so she could move nearer to her daughter and sisters in Florida. In cleaning the house, she found the original toolbox and tools of her grandfather Ricketts, the master carpenterr, among many other things. The names of many of the tools were unknown, and she spent some time identifying them. Before moving, Pat spent several weeks sorting through the family possessions accumulated over three generations and 60 years in the same house.

Ray Ricketts had "brown lung" (from farming, pesticides) etc from years on the tractor without an enclosed cab. He was working on the ladder had a TIA fell off the ladder broke 3 ribs and complications from brown lung it ended up killing him. Got irretractible pnemonia.

[713] BIRTH: Mary and Joseph are twins. Dates of birth are baptismal dates.

[798] Joseph Phelps b. Windsor, Ct., 20 Aug., 1667, m. 1st Mary Collier, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Sanford) Collier, she b. Hartford, d. Simsbury, 13th March, 1697. He m. 2nd, Sarah Case, 9th Nov., 1699, daughter of John and Sarah (Spencer) Case, she b. Simsbury, 14th Aug., 1676, where she died 2nd May, 1704. He m. 3rd Mary Case, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Case, she b. Simsbury, 1669, died there 10th Sept, 1757. She was a widow. Her will dated 13th Aug. 1751, gives to her daughter Keziah,

"Two suits of my clothes, viz.: My silk crape gown and my drugget gown and the petticoats that I used to wear with them, if not I give them to her daughter that tended her in her sickness, viz., daughter Lucy, and I give to her, my said daughter Keziah, or to her daughter Lucy as above, my quilted coat. All the rest of my Estate I do give and devise to my son David, and to my daughter Elizabeth, to be equally divided between them."

Mr. Phelps does not refer to Keziah in his will, which probably indicates that she was a dau. of his wife Mary by her former husband. Mr. Phelps settled in Simsbury and was one of its most influential citizens. He held the office of Justice of the Peace for many years and was elected to the General Assembly from 1709-1727, twenty-eight times; during this time the Legislature held two sessions each year.

The following is a copy of Mr. Phelps' will from Hartford, Conn., Probate:

[2451] William and Mary's marriage had been prohibited by James I, Arabella's cousin, as they were cousins. When James learned of their June 22, 1610 marriage, both were imprisoned. Arabella managed a clever escape for them both but she was caught and later died in the Tower of London. Even James suspected them of having a child. They were definitely together long enough. Arabella was confined for a time at her uncle's estate, long enough to have given birth, and during that period she refused to travel on the basis of her "frail health." Many family members and supporter's wished to see her or her heir take the throne, although she herself did not wish to, and would have been able to provide her with the means to protect such a child.

Three years after Arabella's death James had the matter investigated. Far from settling the matter, his "final report" added fuel to the rumors. He declared that "If such a child existed, it was of no threat to him" period. He should have been able to find out, and it would have been to his advantage to declare that no child existed.

Given her age (born about 1612), the high level of education Mary Dyer obviously had; her closeness to Ann Marbury Hutchinson (a member of the royal court and relative of Arabella who would have been in her 20's when Mary was born), the mystery of such a woman having appeared, seemingly from nowhere at age 22, the day she married William Dyer (from a family with close ties to the families of Ann Marbury and William Hutchinson) is just too much to be coincidence.

In one of her letters to William she mentions "Rachel weeping for her lost child" as if it were a code that they both understood. Add to this, Arabella's closest confidant, her aunt Mary, became estranged from her during her last year in the Tower over an unmentioned matter about their respective religions. Mary was a Catholic and Arabella was a Protestant, but from what we do know, the matter was not about either Arabella's choice of faith, or her tolerance for her aunts. Was it possibly over Arabella's desires for the upbringing of her daughter?

We do know that shortly after the death of king James would have reached them (and after the death Ann Hutchinson and her family) Mary Dyer left New England for London. Leaving a new born child, in addition to her other children, she sailed alone to England in the dead of winter, not the prefered time to travel. She remain there for some time, during which she became familiar with George Fox, later becoming a Quaker. Her husband visited her there, and no credable reports of marital difficulties between them have surfaced. She returned home after Cromwell took the power of the throne for himself. After this time she throws herself into her support for the Quakers, ending in her death.

Contradicting this myth is the research by and others which demonstrate the unlikehood of Mary Barrett being the daughter of Lady Arabella. For example, see The "Tradition" of Mary Dyer & Lady Arabella Stuart

[2697] According to a fictionalized account, "Falls the Shadow", Eleanor was betrothed to William Marshall at a very young age for political and monetary reasons. As most all royal marriages occured in this way, it was perfectly normal. Her marriage to William ended when she was only 15 at her husbands death. She was then convinced by a very close caretaker to take the oath of fidelity from the Pope. This gave her many of the vows of a nun. She never fit well into this as she was a very beautiful blond haired women who enjoyed the company of men. Though she religiously upheld her vows, she fell hopelessly in love with Simon de Monfert after reaching the age of adulthood. They married secretly with the forced assistance of her brother, King Henry. Simon then convinced the Pope with monetary gifts to rescind his wife's vow of Abstinence. This was to say a very scandalous set of circumstances. Simon de Montfert was well below Eleanor's social status to add to boot. This is a love conquers all theme in the novel "Falls the Shadow."
