SCOBEE  Jr., John I. was born Feb. 14th 1809 in Kentucky, probably Clark Co. In 1830 he lived in Ralls Co., MO., probably the town of Paris, MO, and on January 18, 1862, he joined for duty and enrolled in the Union Army at Shibleys Point, MO. He was mustered in on the 5th of February, 1862 at Macon City, MO, the organization being Capt. York's Mounted Rifle Co., Mo. State Militia. This organization subsequently became Co. B. 11th. Reg. Mo. State Militia Cavalry. He was appointed 1st. Lieut. 18 of Jan., day of enrollment, by Willard P. Hall, acting Gov. of the State of Mo. on the basis of integrity, patriotism and ability. He was 53 years old. About 1st of July, 1862, his company, under the command of Major (afterward Col.) Rogers, engaged in the Skirmish at Downing. This place is located on the Keokuk and Western Railway in Schuyler Co., and near the Eastern line thereof. It was called "Cherry Grove", and the fight was known as "The skirmish at "Cherry Grove". The engagement took place between the 2nd. Bn. of the 11th Mo. State Militia (Cavalry) and a portion of Col. Joe Porter's Confederate troops. In this engagement, the latter was defeated with a loss of 4 men killed. The Federals lost one man--Capt. York of Co. B. 11th. Mo. State Militia, who was mortally wounded and died a few days thereafter at Memphis, in Scotland Co., MO. It was on that day that Lieut. John Scobee suffered a gunshot wound in his left wrist and his horse reportedly had his ears shot off. It is possible that John Scobee received a battlefield commission at the death of Capt. York, as he has been known as Capt. Scobee, however it was never official. According to Company muster roll, he was present from enrollment till April 30, 1862, on detached service May and June, and July, August and Sept., he was in the hospital at Macon City. He was mustered out at Palmyra, Mo., Oct. 1, 1862. After his return from the service he owned and operated a livery stable. He was a member of the Masons. He died on the 21st day of Nov. 1896 in Adair Co., MO, and is buried at the Morlock Cemetery--age 87 years-9 months-7 days. The following person is his son...The discharge papers of my gggrandfather says...                                                                         SCOBEE, James S., a private of Capt.

Isaac Christopher SIMLER, the grandson of Revolutionary War Veteran, Christopher Winter (DAR A128933) and Catherine Shaffer Winter, was born in Harrison County, Indiana, to his parents John Jasper Simler and Susanna Winter Simler. John Jasper was the first of the Swiss Simlers to be born in this country. Susanna’s family was of German descent. The couple had eight children, including Isaac. Two of Isaac’s brothers were drowned in the Ohio River in 1824 when they were drawn into quicksand.  David (aged 16) and Jacob (aged 14) died when Isaac was only 5 years old.  Isaac’s older brother Solomon died at age 19, of brain fever.  Life was precious and hard during those times. When he was 19 years old, Isaac married Elizabeth Fravel (1823-1902), on Christmas Day, 1838 in Harrison County, Indiana. They became the parents of Catherine, Charles, Mary Ann. Daniel, Rebecca, Lucinda, Isaac Christopher, and George. They traveled to Missouri from Indiana in a covered wagon. Neva Jean Simler Barnhill has the storage box that they brought in the wagon with them. “In 1854, they came to Adair County, Missouri. He first bought a 120 acre tract, then entered 80 acres, he afterward bought 20 acres and entered 40 acres of timberland and entered 139 acres and bought 200 acres.[As of 1888 he owned 600 acres, of which about 200 were cultivated.] In August 1861, he joined the 22nd Missouri Cavalry, which was afterward merged in the Black Hawke constituting the 7th Missouri Cavalry. He served as orderly until he was discharged on February 2, 1863, on account of disability. He was at the Battles of Blue Mills and Prairie Grove and came so near being wounded as to receive sixteen bullets in his clothes. After his return, he joined a company of provisional militia, of which he became Captain, doing service against the Bushwhackers...[Sources for narrative on Isaac Simler was History of Adair, Sullivan, Putman, and Schuyler Counties of Missouri, Goodspeed Publishing Company 1888, and The Genealogy of Isaac Christopher SimlerAfter their arrival in Adair County, Missouri, Clara and John Simler were born to the couple. Even though Isaac was promoted to Captain in 1864, his pension, dated September 15, 1881, was based upon the rank of Sgt. Isaac Christopher and Elizabeth lost several children. The two boys, mentioned earlier, Jacob and David, drowned in the Ohio River Their daughter, Rebecca Jane, died when she was 18 months old, and their daughter, Lucinda, died at the age of 37, without any record of marriage or of having children. We have found a census record for her from the hospital in Fulton, but at this time, we have not determined a burial place for her. Additionally, their daughter, Clara, died at 3 years old. Their son, Daniel A Simler, died at age 19 at the Centralia Massacre in the Civil War. He joined as a Private on August 6th, 1864 in Captain James A Smith’s Company “A” of the 39th regiment of the Infantry, Union Army serving until his death less than two months later. Daniel is buried in Jefferson City at the Court House Cemetery. This left surviving children, Catherine, Charles, Mary Ann, Isaac Christopher (Neta’s and Carol’s great grandfather), George and John. Isaac and Elizabeth Simler were devout Methodists, following the religion of Isaac’s parents. The old home place remained in the family for nearly 100 years, when it sold in 1955. Isaac and Elizabeth were lifelong farmers. They are both buried at Salisbury-Parcels cemetery in Adair County. Great-Great Grandfather of: Neta Simler Chandler and Carol Young Navarro.
