    Notes 
    • Hillery Whittington had married Laura Mae McCall, daughter of Samuel James McCall and Dorothy Caroline Curry. Laura Mae was born in Mercer County, Pennsylvania in 1875.

      I, Howard Barnhart, received a copy of the Vandalla Historical Society magazine last month. The feature article was on the Courtney contract to cut 35000 acres of timber in Putnam County, West Virginia. The contract was dated 1890. Mr. Courtney lived in Mercer County, Pennsylvania. He was a neighbor of Samuel's, and sure enough Sylvan (Whittington) tells me, this is the reason Samuel went to West Virginia in 1890. He took with him five teams of draft horses and five of his sons. This is the reason his sons became scattered, two in Ohio, one in West Virginia and others returning to Butler 1894/5 when the contract was finished. At the time they were in West Virginia, Dorothy Caroline (Curry) Samuel's wife, was the camp cook at one of the camps, her daughter was a cooks helper, and since Hillery lived in this area, he was a timber cutter. Hence they met and married.

      He also showed me a watch he had, given to him by his grandmother, Dorothy Caroline, at age 30 with quite a story, which probably has quite a bit of truth in it. It is an Illinois Railroad watch, made in Springfield, Illinois, and inside the back cover is six RR inspection marks, or time inspection marks placed by a railroad inspector when working for a railroad. Dorothy Caroline was one of six teenagers (she was born 1843) who was canvassing for Abraham Lincoln. (all girls) At one time, they were working in a city, when a carnival or small circus came to location. The girls ask Lincoln for the afternoon and evening off to attend the event. He refused, advising them they must continue their canvassing task, but that he would remember this event. After the election, he came with six of these watches and presented a watch to each girl. Removing the cover, or rear, the name "A Lincoln" is engraved on the back plate just above the serial number, and watch makers name. Just near the rim is the six RR inspection marks. In the center of the back is the initials "E J C" put in by hand. Since Dorothy Caroline's father was David Curry, and she had no brothers with such initials, the watch may have been carried by a nephew. She had a John and a James Curry nephews.
