6 "Kenny" Kenneth (Kenny) Allan O'Guinn was born in Montebello, California on May 22, 1926, the fourth of five children of Allan & Susie O'Guinn. He died peacefully at home with his family in Whittier, California on November 29, 2013. He was 87. Kenny grew up during the Great Depression. He spoke of the Depression and World War Two as the defining periods of his life, and of his character. When WWII broke out his father was captured at Wake Island and sent to prison camp in Japan, and his mother went to work at Douglas Aircraft to support the family. Kenny rushed to finish high school and joined the Navy in 1943 at age seventeen. His older sisters Virginia and Helen had already enlisted in the Army and Navy respectively. During the war he served as a Fire Controlman aboard the destroyer escort Wingfield on convoy duty in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, attaining the rank of Petty Officer First Class. Following the war he shipped to the Pacific aboard the Albemarle for Operation Crossroads, the Atomic Bomb tests at Bikini Atoll. A few years later, when Korea was invaded, he was recalled from active reserve to serve again in the Pacific. Earlier in his Naval career he met his future wife Rose Marie Fantasia in Washington DC. They were married there on December 14, 1946. Between the wars, Kenny moved his new family to Pico, California where he, like his father - and later his sons - entered the plumbing trade, and was eventually foreman on many major Southern California projects. He later became an inspector for the City of Los Angeles, and taught for many years at the Southern California Pipe Trades Training Center. When he met Rose, Kenny converted to Catholicism, and in California became a very active member of Saint Hilary church. There he was a founder and the first president of the Perpetual Adoration Society, as well as an enthusiastic tenor in the church choir. In 1965 the growing family moved to Whittier, where Kenny was equally active, including duties as a Eucharistic Minister, at Saint Gregory the Great Church. Kenny had a lifelong romance with trains - big and small. He built his own steam engine, and served as a hard working member - and eventually as president of - Riverside Live Steamers. Even in his last days, he asked to be taken to the tracks to watch the trains. Married 67 years to the love of his life, he leaves behind his wife Rose, his 9 children, Stuart (Betsy), Teresa Costantino (Chuck), John (Sally), Patrick (Jane), Mary, Ken, Jean Hernandez (John), Ruth Marshall (Mike) & David (Eddie) and his sister Pat Appleby (Roy). He was blessed with sixteen grandchildren, ten great grandchildren and five great great grandchildren. Kenny was a devoted family man, respected plumber and teacher. His wisdom, honesty, work ethic, kindness, and ever-present sense of humor made us all better people. He will be greatly missed. Services are pending.

Divorce Records, Lawrence County Arkansas;

William Jackson vs Mary Jackson, Filed 17 Aug 1866. William Jackson states that on 8 or 9 Feb 1861 he married Mary Guynn in Lawrence County and they lived together until the summer of 1862 when William went into military service in Oct 1862, William's group went to the extreme western and southern portion of Arkansas. He served there until the middle of July 1865; he did not see his wife from Oct 1862 until Jul 1865. When he returned home, he found his wife pregnant and refused to live with her, and in Oct 1865 she gave birth to a child. He does not know who the father is but it is not him. He said that Mary now lives somewhere in Missouri. His sworn statement is sign: William R. (X, his mark) Jackson.

The two children that were born of Mary O'Guinn Jackson in 1865 and 1869 were given the last name of Jackson because at the time, that was their mother's last name, not because William Jackson was their father. William Butler was conceived while William Jackson was at war. Cynthia was conceived in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where her mother was living, as proven by 1868 Missouri census and stated in the 1866 divorce record by William Jackson. It is stated, quite plainly, in the divorce record, that William wanted nothing to do with Mary when he returned home.

Thomas O'Guin, the grandfather of the subject of
this sketch, was born in the county, there grew to manhood, married, and
became a prominent farmer. When the Civil war broke out he cast
his lot with the Southern Confederacy and entered the army as a
private soldier. Exposure and hardship incident to military life so
impaired his health that he died of tuberculosis soon after being dis-
charged from the service, leaving two sons, the younger of which, Sidney
L. O'Guin, was born near Whitfield, Hickman county, in April, 1863.
In 1884, S. L. O'Guin and Sarah Coble were united in marriage in
Lewis county, Tennessee, though she is a native of Hickman county,
where she was born in 1856.

33 Drowned off of a barge in the bay

"Southeast Missourian"
Word of the accidental death of Benny Clark, 20, of Malden, came Wednesday night to his brothers in this city. The young man was an employee of Pure Oil Co. and his death was by drowning, an accident which occurred on Christmas Eve. Clark was a son of Omer Clark of Commerce.
Relating the accident today Mrs. Horace Clark said her brother-in-law was one of the crew of the McElroy, a tow barge of Pure Oil, and that at the time of the fatality the barge was travelling an inner coastal canal and was about 300 feet from the mouth of Vermillion River, near Abbeville, La. From information relayed the brothers here, Clark had gone to the front end of the barge and was putting out the running lights and presumably backed off into the canal.
This they were advised, occurred about dusk, and dragging, which was started immediately, has been going on since.
First information of the death was learned by the Horace Clarks as they were listening about 6 o'clock for boat calls Christmas Eve in their home at 26 South Hanover street, Mr. Clark himself being a pilot on the Nicholas Duncan, a boat of the Marquette Cement Co. After hearing a call from the boat the sheriff of Abbeville, and a later telephone call to the older brother from the pilot of the McElroy, Horace and his brothers, Ray Clark, 417 South Pacific street, and Harold Clark of Route 2, and their brother-in-law, W.C. Feisler of Malden went to Louisiana.
Benny Clark was born Nov. 8, 1932 in Commerce, was schooled in the grades at Illmo and was graduated in 1950 from high school in Malden.
His mother died in 1935 and since that time he had lived with his sister, Mrs. Feisler and Mr. Feisler. After his graduation from high school he was employed by the Marquette Cement Co. 
Clark, Benny O'Guin (I00282)
34 Edith Jewel O'Guinn was born on March 11, 1917 in Hainville, Wood County, Texas to James Henry Kennimer and Willie Yancy Kennimer. She had four siblings, two brothers and two sisters. Edith was the second oldest child in her family just behind her oldest sister Lucille. She was born in her house instead of a hospital. She and her sisters did not have toys so for fun they played outside and rode the pigs. The pigs would throw them off and run under the house. Her first job was working on her family farm. Her family lived as sharecroppers and worked the land lent to them by the landowner. They did not have a tractor so her dad used a mule and her and her sister went along behind him and planted. When she was old enough she worked the mule and the plow.

The family did not own a car so they went everywhere in the horse drawn wagon or they would walk. They had to walk over a mile to church and to Cartwright Country School. She lived during the Great Depression. During this time her family was unable to work the farm. Her father borrowed $48.00 to try to get the family through the hard times. She stopped going to school after the 8th grade. When she was fourteen she started working in a sewing room in the town closest to the family farm to support the family. Her dad was very sick and could not work anymore. The family lived off of the $25.00 a week that she earned. When the Great Depression was over her family was forced to move into town.

Edith continued to sew and support her family until she married Vernon O'Guinn. Her older sister had married young but Edith waited until she was 27 years old to marry. Not long after they married her husband moved them to Dickens, TX. Her dad was 54 and her mom was 66 when they died from cancer. While they lived in Dickens she and Vernon both worked on a farm. They soon moved to Spur, TX where Vernon worked as a mechanic making about $47.00 a week and Edith continued to sew and work in the local diner. Their first home in Spur was an apartment behind someone's house. The apartment rent was $15.00 per month. She remembers there first grocery bills were $18.00 a month.

Edith was blessed with two children, James Coy and Doris Ann. Both of her children were born in their home in Spur. After the children were born she took her first job in a five and dime variety store in Spur. She would spend the next 42 years working in Variety stores until she retired at the age of 72.

Every Friday and Saturday night her and her family would go to the picture show (movie) where tickets were a quarter. Back then the movie only sold popcorn and it was a nickel a bag. No matter how hard it was they always found the money each week to attend the picture. Edith said she used her sewing skills to sew blankets and clothes for the family. She used cotton flour sacks for the material and made both of the kids clothing out of them. When the children started school the family moved to Lubbock where Vernon took a job as a mechanic and Edith worked for TG&Y. They rented homes until they built their first home in 1963. Edith and Vernon's first car was a 1939 Ford, they got there first phone when she was thirty and her first television when she was thirty-four. They did not have an indoor restroom until they moved to their first rent house in Lubbock in 1947.

Her hobbies were sewing, cooking, and canning. One of her greatest accomplishment was when her and Vernon were able to get on their feet and make a good living.

One of the most exciting things in her life was when she got married. Her husband died on May 4, 2005 from cancer. She and Vernon were married for sixty-two years. Edith Jewel O'Guinn passed from this life on Monday, February 25 just shy of her 96th birthday. As her family gathered around her to pray, Mema took her last breath and very peacefully passed away. In the blink of an eye she met Jesus face to face. She lived a wonderful life. We will miss her home-cooked meals, her garden in the spring and her pies, chow chow and jellies. Edith Jewel O'Guinn is my Mema.

Mema is survived by her son Coy and his wife Kathy and her daughter Doris Smith. She is survived by five grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren: Cory and Kelly O'Guinn (Lauren and Sydney), Jami and Steve Smith (Dustin, Hunter, Maegan), Cody and Jena O'Guinn (Ainsley, Rorey, Jaxyn), Katie and James Majors (Michael, Sarah, Kassi, Garrett, Emily) and Crystal Johnson (Dale). Edith was proceeded in death by her husband, parents, two sisters, two brothers, and an infant great grandson Matthew Smith.

Andrew Carroll O'guin was the son of Hardy O'Guin. I am out of town at the moment and away from my genealogy data. I do not know who Hardy married. Jeramiah O'Guin married Susan Paralee (aka Pearlie)Williams in Perry Co Tennessee and emigrated to TX. I'm a little hazy about the dates without my own computer.

39 Henry O'Guin Dies in Decatur County; Burial in Perry

Henry O'Guin, aged 73, known for yrs to his many friends as "Uncle Henry," died at the home of his only son, Riley O'Guin near Sugar Tree, Decatur Co., on Tuesday night at 8:00 Nov. 5, after several months of unmitigated suffering. He was first stricken with paralysis at a nephew's home in Conway, Ark., in July and was stricken again at the home of his niece, Mrs. Houston Luckett in Hohenwald. He was removed to St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville, but on the advice of his physicians was returned to the home of his son a week prior to his death. Burial was in the family graveyard, Nix on Roan's Creek in Perry County, Nov. 16th, near his birthplace and old home. The funeral services, attended by many relatives from Perry, Lewis and Hickman, were simple and impressive. At the request of the dec'd, Rev. C. N. Hudson read withour comment the Fifteenth Chapter of First Corinthians (a great New Testament, chapter on the Resurrection of the dead), and sorrowing friends sang the tender old hymn, "Nearer, My God, To Thee." No eulogy was pronounced at the grave, but Uncle Henry's life of faith and devotion was testimony enough to convince all of his supreme confidence in the Redemer and the greater Life to come. He was preceded in death by his wife, Ellen (Daniel) O'Guin, daughter of James Smith & Elizabeth "Betty" O'Guin, who died in August, 1928, and by four brothers and one sister. He is survived by one brother, Commodore O'Guin, of Tom's Creek, one sister, Mrs. G. A. Jumper of Conway, and by an only son, Riley, mentioned above. In 1930 Uncle Henry spent the summer and fall with G. W. Chessor and family in Shipps Bend (Mrs. Chessor is his niece), helping in the crop, and endeared himself to many in the community which was then new to him. He often returned on visits t these relatives and friends to whom he was devoted. When old age crept upon him and infirmity, he spent much time in travel, visiting relatives in kentucky, West Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma. He was of Irish descent, member of one of the poineer families of Perry County. His paeternal great-grandfather, John Tyler O'Guin, the ancestor of most of the O'Guin in this part of Tennessee, emigrated from Ireland and settled originally on Tom' Creek. Uncle Henry was a cousin of John and Sidney O'Guin of this county and more distantly related to many others of this family. His passing will be mourned by a legion of friends who esteemed him because of his perennial good humor, his meek disposition, and unfailing kindness--(J.E.C).

40 In a family graveyard in Humphreys Co TN we found the marker of Margaret E Choate b 1859 d 1909, wife of V Choate, along with another of William Ernest Choate b in 1880's and died about 1885 (marker not clear). I also found in Humphrey Co minutes where Margaret Choate died before 24 April 1900 when W. E. O'Guin was appointed guardian of Beulah Choate, Bob Choate, Tim Choate, Ernest Choate (dead child?), Emmet Choate and Eliza Warren, minor heirs of Margaret Choate. Evidently V (Valentine?) was already dead. This is in a Hobbs cemetery and I am trying to make the connection. Margaret may be a Hobbs by Joel C Hobbs and Rosannah White Hobbs. Any help would be appreciated.
