Ref: "Genealogy of the Hord Family" by Rev. Arnold Harris Hord, 1898

States: Oscar B." (Francis Triplett Hord 5 , Elias 4 , Jesse 3, Thomas-', John 1 ), was born in Mason County, Kentucky, August 31, 1829.' Studied law with his lather, Judge Francis T. Hord, and in 1849 went to Greenshurg, Indiana, to begin the practice of law. There he and his law partner, Colonel James Gavin, began a compilation and revision of the statutes. Colonel Gavin soon after entered the war, and the work was completed by Mr. Hord and Hon. Cortez Ewing. The book was issued about 1862, and had a large sale. Under the title of the "Hord and Gavin Statutes" it is still a standard authority in many libraries. A memorial, written at the time of the death of Hon. Oscar B. Hord says of it, '-The bar of Indiana is greatly indebted to Mr. Hord for the compilation of the statutes, which was only superseded by the late revision of them under the authority of the Legislature, and is yet a monument to Ins careful industry." In 1862 he was elected Attorney-General of Indiana, and held that position for two years. At the expiration of his term of office he became a member of the law firm of " Hendricks, Hord, and Baker,'' with Governor Baker, of Indiana, and Hon. Thomas A. Hendricks (afterwards Vice-President of the United States) as members. In 1876 and 1884 he was a Delegate to the National Democratic Convention.

At the time of his decease the following memorial was adopted by the Indianapolis bar:

" For more than a quarter of a century Oscar B. Hord has been known to the bench and bar of Indiana, lie was eminent among his brethren at the bar for the accuracy and amplitude of his professional knowledge and for his untiring industry in the practice of the law. Early in his career he mastered the statutes of this Commonwealth, and it may be said that he held them in his memory. He was acquainted with the history of almost every legislative act. No one was so entirely conversant with the course of judicial decisions from the days of Blackford and Dewey to the present time. He was recognized by his brethren throughout the Shite as the mo-t eminent authority on State jurisprudence. Judges advised with him, and lawyers from every quarter sought aid of his profound acquirements. Of the many illustrious names enrolled upon the records of the Supreme Court of Indiana, none will be found recurring so often or leading in so great a number of important causes as his own. His profound knowledge and remarkable acquirements as to the rights of men were not limited to the State and nation, and he was hardly less familiar with the laws of other States and England. His capacity and power of research were unequalled. Hardly any man of his time had a wider and more accurate knowledge of the laws of English-speaking peoples."

On the same occasion eulogistic addresses were also delivered by the most distinguished men of the State, of whom Senator Benjamin Harrison, afterwards President of the United States, was one. Mr. Harrison said of Mr. Hord, " As a lawyer, he was not only his client's counselor, but his faithful friend as well. I think his death will reveal more memorandums of citations than that of any other lawyer of the State. Mr. Hord tried his cause laboriously. The fact that with the death of Mr. Hord one of the greatest law firms that ever existed is extinct is certainly a sad one. I knew and loved Oscar B. Hord. He was always a courteous adversary and a true friend."

Aside from the Attorney- Generalship, Mr. Hord never held a public office. The Indianapolis Sentinel said of him at his death, ?

"His wide acquaintance and popularity would have made him a formidable candidate for any nomination, but he had no political ambition, preferring to devote himself to his profession and quietly enjoy the competence accruing therefrom. True, he was a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions of 1876 and 1884, but he did not seek those honors to gratify personal aspirations, but solely to render service to tin- late Vice-President Hendricks, of whom he was a devoted, lite-long friend. Throughout Mr. Hendricks's public career, Mr. Hord enjoyed his confidence to a greater degree, perhaps, than any other Democrat in Indiana, lie was, in fact, his first lieutenant, and his time and means were constantly at the disposal of the great statesman. He aided in securing Mr. Hendricks the nom-
inations for Vice-President at both St. Louis and Chicago, and always regarded these as the two proudest acts of his life.

" Mr. Hord's attainments were not confined to the law. He was a scholar in the full meaning of the term. He was never happier than when at home with his books. His private library was one of the largest and most carefully selected in the State. He found his greatest pleasure in literary pursuits, and was thoroughly posted on current literature. Scarcely a day passed that he did not invest in a new volume of some sort. He was a veritable ' book-worm,' and was commonly known as the 'greatest reader
in Indianapolis.'

" Socially, Mr. Hord was one of the pleasantest companions. A cultured conversationalist, refined in thought, and polished in manner, he was naturally sought after by gentlemen. His kindness of heart and generosity were striking traits of his character. He gave liberally to public charity, and was accustomed to contribute to the relief of distress wherever be found it. His purse-strings were constantly loosened to help the deserving. He was also ever ready to lend a helping hand to an ambitious young lawyer, and his friendship in every way was of the sort that counts."'

Mr. Hord married, first, Miss Green, of Kentucky, and secondly, Mary J. Perkins, daughter of Judge Samuel E. Perkins, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Indiana. He died ai Indianapolis, Indiana, January 15, 1888. (See -? Bench and Par of Indiana,*' by Taylor, page 238, for a biographical sketch of him.)

States: THE MOSS FAMILY was originally of York County,
Virginia, " where for generations they were an influential
family." ("William and Mary College Quarterly," vol. ii.
p. 27.) A drawing of the family coat of arms appears in the
court records of York County, Virginia, of the date of
1658 or thereabouts. (" William and Mary College Quar-
terly," vol. ii. p. 27.)

Elizabeth Scott Moss was born in King George County,
Virginia, October 31, 1806, and died at "Beechland," near
Maysville, Kentucky, December, 1884.

Kendal Moss, her father, was born in King George
County, Virginia, July 8, 1774, and died in Fleming County,
Kentucky, January 22, 1850. He married JSTancy, daughter
of George and Mary Grant, of Prince William County,
Virginia, December 1, 1796.

Kendal Moss served for a short time in the Virginia
Militia during the war of 1812, and assisted in repelling
the raids of the British on the shores of the Chesapeake
and the vicinity. He left Virginia and started for Ken-
tucky on the 1st of October, 1812, accompanied by all of
his family and servants, in two wagons, each wagon being
drawn by four horses, the only mode of travelling to the West, They climbed the mountains by hitching the eight
horses to one wagon, and when they had reached the
summit the eight horses were taken back to drag up the
other wagon. He and his family went to old Fort Redstone
(now Brownsville, Pennsylvania), and thence on a flat-
boat down the Ohio River to Limestone (now Maysville),
Kentucky, where they disembarked. They were a month
in making the trip from King George County, Virginia, to
Maysville, Kentucky. From there he went to the house of
his father-in-law, Air. George Grant, where he remained
until he bought some land in the neigborhood about a mile
distant, on Indian Creek, a branch of the North Fork of
the Licking River. The first purchase he made was from
William Bryan, October 2!>. 1814, of three hundred and
ninety-two acres of land tor two thousand dollars. Such
was the wild condition of the country that they were com-
pelled at night to keep the stock in enclosures near the
house to protect them from the wolves, whose bowlings
made the night hideous.

Moses Moss, father of Kendal Moss, was born in Virginia,
1738, and resided in Prince William County, Virginia. He
died at the house of his son in Kentucky, June 19, 1827.
The name of his wife was Elizabeth Lashbrooke, daughter
of William and Elizabeth (Ethelridge) Lashbrooke, who
emigrated to Virginia and settled on an estate near Dum-
fries, Prince William County, in 1747. William Lash-
brooke was the son of William and Elizabeth Lashbrooke,
of London, England. He made several voyages to Eng-
land in the interest of the great mercantile house in Lon-
don of which his father was the founder, and which was
one of the first English establishments of the kind to
carry on its business in the American colonies, in Brit-
ish India, and in other parts of the world then little

THE TRIPLETT FAMILY emigrated to Virginia about
1714, or during the beginning of the reign of King George
I. of England. Three brothers ? Hedgman, John, and
Thomas Francis ? settled in Westmoreland County, Vir-
ginia. From them are descended all the Tripletts of
America. Tradition says that they were sons of Rev. Dr.
Thomas Triplett, a graduate of Oxford University, some
time Vicar of Woodhorn in Northumberland, Rector of
Whitburn and Washington, Prebendary successively of
York, Salisbury, and Durham, and at the time of his
death Prebendary and sub-Dean of Westminster Abbey.
He lies buried in the "Poets' Corner" of that beautiful and
historic church.

Ann Triplett, wife of Captain Elias Hord, was born in
Virginia, November 27, 1774, and died in Mason County,
Kentucky, March 14, 1866. She was the daughter of
Francis Triplett, and the grand-daughter of Thomas Francis
Triplett, Esq., the first of his line in Virginia. Captain
Francis Triplett, her father, was born in Fauquier County,
Virginia, about 1728. He participated in the French and
Indian War, and in the Journal of the Virginia House of
Burgesses, April 28 and 29, 1751, appears the following in
regard to him :

" Petition of Francis Triplett, setting forth that he entered as a Volunteer the Prince William Militia, sent out
last June for the protection of the Frontier, where in a
skirmish with the Enemy he received a most dangerous
wound in right arm, For the cure of which he was at con-
siderable expense. Praying consideration of the House.

" Resolution passed. Francis Triplett allowed 55 pounds."

He subsequently participated in the Revolutionary War,
and was a captain in the militia of Fauquier County, Vir-
ginia, from September 2s, 1778, to the close of the war.
(See "Order-Book" of the Fauquier County Court, 1773-80,
page 341.) He commanded the Virginia militia at the
battle of Cowpens, South Carolina, January 17, 1781, and
for his services received a sword from Congress. (See
"Life of Daniel Morgan,"' by .lames Graham; Lossing's
"Field-Book of the Revolution," vol. ii. pp. 431, 433; and
Irving's "Life of Washington.") Captain Triplett was a
vestryman of Leei I s Parish, Fauquier County, Virginia, and
a justice of the peaee. (" Order-Book," Fauquier County
Court, 1773-80, p. 341, and 1788-91, p. 197.) He married
Benedite , and died in January, 1794, leaving thirty-
seven thousand acres of the best land in Kentucky to his
children. His will, dated September 24, 1794, and pro-
bated in the Fauquier County Court, January 26, 1795, is

States: Elias * Hord (Jesse/ Thomas,' John ') was born
in Virginia, March 9, 1773. He moved to Kentucky. He was Captain of Scouts in the Regiment of Colonel Richard M. Johnson, May 21, 1813, to November 19, 1813 (Records of the War Department, Washington, D. C, and of the Adjutant-General's Office in Kentucky). He participated in the Battle of the Thames. In company with Colonel Devall Payne he pursued and overtook the carriage of the Bristish General Proctor after the Battle of the Thames, capturing in it General Proctor's compass. In the inventory of Elias Hord's estate, dated December 21, 1821, in the Court House, Mason County, Kentucky, is mentioned a compass (probably General Proctor's), a tomahawk and other articles used by the early pioneers of Kentucky.

In the Mason County records there is a deed dated February 9, 1815, from " Elias Hord and Ann his wife to Edward Hord," conveying 200 acres of land, " the same tract that was sold by Alexander K. Marshall (brother of Chief Justice John Marshall) to Jesse Hord, September 29, 1812." Elias Hord's widow received bounty land for her husband's service in the War of 1812 (See Pension Office Records, Washington, D. C). He married Ann Triplett. They were married at the house of Captain William Triplett, brother of Ann Triplett, in Mason County, Kentucky, September 15, 1796 (Records of the Pension Office, Washington, D. C).

Ann Triplett (born November 27, 1774) was the daughter of Colonel Francis Triplett (will proved in Fauquier County, January 26, 1795), who served in Colonel George Washington's Regiment in the French and Indian War, and was granted 55 by the Assembly for wounds received (Journal of House of Burgesses, April 28 and 29, 1751; "Letters to Washington," edited by Hamilton, Vol. I, pages 114,340).

Francis Triplett was commissioned Captain of Fauquier County, Virginia, Militia, September 28, 1778, and the records show that he was in active service in the Revolution continuously or at different times until 1783. In Heitman's " Register of Officers of the Continental Army " (new, revised and enlarged edition, 1914) page 548, is the following :

"Triplett, Francis (Va.), Captain V Militia,1778-1781."

In a letter to Rev. A. H. Hord, Mr. Heitman states that he found Francis Triplett " mentioned as Captain in correspondence in 1778, 1780 and 1781." He held later the rank of Major and Colonel, and participated in the Southern campaign, as shown by the record of his service in " Virginia Soldiers in the Revolution," published by the Virginia State Library. The following records are in the Virginia State Library:

Auditor's Account Books, Vol. VII, page 299: " Saturday the 17th of March 1781, Warrant to Cap. Francis Triplett for pay of his company and Cap. James Winns of Fauquier Militia on duty to the Southward. Pay Rolls and Certificates 85434-7-6."

Auditor's Account Books, Vol. VIII, page 242 : " 3rd September 1781, Monday ? ^Militia Expenses Dr. Major Francis Triplett warr. to Mrs. Anne C. Page for two horses delivered to you for your comp. of Militia Cavalry & valued to 180 specia at 350 for one is ? 63000."

Auditor's Account Books, Vol. XVIII, page 164: " Richmond, Virginia, 20 Decemr. 1783, Militia Warr. to Francis Triplett for his services as a Colo, in the Militia of this State 103?"

Francis Triplett was the " Major Triplett " who is mentioned in the official report of the Battle of Cowpens and in the list of officers participating in that battle (Graham's " Life of General Daniel Morgan," pages 309,

In the affidavits of Virginia soldiers (who participated in the battle), published in McAllister's "Virginia Militia in the Revolutionary War," are the following references to Francis Triplett, showing that he participated in the Battle of Cowpens:

Page 94 Section 75 ? " Samuel Sans or Sands, born 1752 drafted from Augusta late in 1780. Served under Captain James Tate, whose Major was Frank Triplett, of Fauquier. The regular officers were Maj. Brooks, Col. Howard and Gen. Morgan. Was in the Battle of Cowpens, &c."

(" Major Triplett and Captain Tate " are mentioned as participating in the " Battle of Cowpens " in Lossing's " Field Book of the Revolution," Vol. 2, pp. 431, 433, and in " Battles of the Revolution," page 540, by Carrington).

Page 171, Section 243 ? "Spencer Withers, born 1756. Went out from Warrenton, summer of 1780, under Capt. Francis Triplett to Hillsboro, N. C. Served in Morgan's Brigade against the tories. Tarleton pursued Morgan forty miles to Cowpens. Affiant was then sick."

Page 31 (Part I), showing the service of the Virginia Militia by counties: " 1780 Capt. Francis Triplett's company was in the Battle of Cowpens."

Page 31, "Note: ? One of the Augusta County soldiers speaks of a Major Frank Triplett of Fauquier who was in the Battle of Cowpens."

Major Francis Triplett commanded the Virginia Militia in Battle of Cowpens (Graham's " Life of Daniel Morgan," pages 309, 468).

Major Francis Triplett's Militia guarded the British prisoners captured at Cowpens (Graham's " Life of Daniel Morgan," pages 328, 32)2), 364).

The following records are in Henry County :

October 3, 1790, John Anthony deeds to William Hord 590 acres in Henry County.

July 9, 1791, William Hord conveys "a part of the land whereon I now live to John Hord," his brother.

Donald was born May 6, 1933, to Burns and Peg (Johnston) Abernethy in Beach and attended elementary and high school in both Beach and Sentinel Butte.

On Sept. 7, 1955, Donald and Rella (Cook) were married in Sentinel Butte. While they lived in Glendive, Mont., they had two daughters, LaDonna and Bobbi Jo.

Don and Rella attended Dickinson State College and received two-year teaching certificates in the spring of 1962. The summers were filled with travel while the Abernethys continued their education at the University of Kansas in Lawrence and Chadron State in Chadron, Neb. Don received his bachelor of science degree in elementary education from Dickinson State in 1971.

The Abernethys first teaching assignment was at Twin Lakes Elementary north of Williston from 1962-70. The eight years they spent at Williston created lasting friendships. Hunting, trapping, fishing and snowmobiling were Don?s obsessions.

From Williston, the family moved to Tolley, where Don taught fifth- and sixth-grade for three years. He loved coaching pee wee basketball and continued to find excellent fishing spots and hunting areas as well as making more life-long friends, which he referred to as his ?heroes.?

Don and his family operated Bird?s Point Resort on Round Lake in southern Saskatchewan from 1973-75. The many Canadian friends they made included the Pearson family. Clark Pearson lived with the Abernethys for nine years as part of the family.

In 1975, Don returned to the farm north of Sentinel Butte, where he and Rella have resided since. They raised cattle, wheat, hay and a variety of other crops and operated Don?s Rain Gutter Service.

Big Top Fireworks in Beach was another adventure for Don and Rella for several years. Don also served as a county commissioner for Golden Valley County for 12 years.

Don enjoyed life with his family and friends. Hunting, fishing (including spear-fishing) continued to be his favorite pastimes, as well as a good game of pinochle. The discovery of ancient Clovis-era artifacts on his land was one of the most exciting events of his life. The artifacts have been donated to the North Dakota Heritage Center.

Don was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.

Don leaves his wife of 56 years, Rella, Sentinel Butte; who supported his adventurous spirit with patience and humor; his two daughters, LaDonna Fallgatter, Bismarck, and Bobbi (Marvin) Hansen, Belgrade, Mont., who blessed him with five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, they include Donny Fallgatter, Nashville, Tenn., Mitch (Jenn) Fallgatter and their children, Leo and Mila, Lakeville, Minn., Jeff (Erin) Fallgatter and their children, Kadence, Riley and Wyatt, West Fargo, Marty Hansen, Maupin, Ore., and Jen (Russ) Smith and their children, Carlie and Jacey, Belgrade, Mont.

BODISKI M. HORD, a retired farmer, who has been a resident of the village of Prospect since 1904, was born February 22, 1846, in what is now Morrow County, Ohio, then included in Marion County, and is a son of Peter and Ann (McKinley) Hord. Peter Hord was born and reared in Virginia, on his father's farm. He was of English ancestry and the family was, first established in this country in Virginia at a very early period. He became a cabinet-maker and after his first marriage moved to Ohio, where his wife died. There were nine children born to his first union, namely Ellen, who married R. Thomas-both now deceased; Virginia, who married William Walden; Emma who married a Mr. Smith-both now, deceased; John K., Jared, Oliver, Champ and Benjamin, all deceased; and Eugene. He subsequently married Ann McKinley, who was of Irish descent., and whose father, James McKinley, is said to have been a brother of President McKinley's father. Three children were born to Peter and Ann Hord, namely: Severus A. and Lycurgus, both deceased; and Bodiski, the subject of this sketch. Peter Hord died in 1848 and his widow married John Griffiths, by whom she had three children: Marietta, deceased, who was the wife of B. F. Hedges; John D. and Newton H. Mrs. Griffiths died in May, 1886, her husband having died in 1860. Bodiski M. Hord was reared on the farm where he was born. In 1861 he enlisted in the army, in Company E, 66th Reg., Ohio Vol. Inf., and served through the entire war, returning home in 1865, without having been wounded in battle. The first two years of his service he was in the Army of the Potomac, after which he was in New York City for about three weeks during the draft riots. His next service was in the army of Gen. Joseph Hooker. He was taken prisoner at Port Republic, Virginia, and was first confined at Lynchburg, later being taken to the Belle Isle prison at Richmond, where he was held from June 9, 1862, to September 15th. He was in the battles of Gettysburg and Lookout Mountain, in the engagements around Atlanta and was with Sherman in his "March to the Sea." He experienced many hardships during these years and also had many good times. After the close of the war, he returned to the home farm where he remained until the winter of 1872, when he was married to Hannah J. Penry, who was born in Radnor township, Delaware County, Ohio, September 30, 1845, and is a daughter of David and Joanna (Jones) Penry. Mr. Penry was born in 1806 and was the first white child born in Radnor township, Delaware County. He was a son of David and Mary (Pugh) Penry, natives of Wales, who came to this country at a very early period. Mrs. Hord's mother, Joanna (Jones) Penry, was born in Wales and came to America with her parents, John P. and Mary (Penry) Jones, at the age of six years. David and Joanna Penry had a family of 10 children; Thomas L.: John P.: Mrs. Mary M. Wolfley; Hannah J.; Amelia D., who married G. Adams; Margaret, who died aged 16 years; Reuben, who died aged eight years; and three that died in infancy. Mr. Penry died in 1890 aged 84 years; Mrs. Penry's, death occurred in 1896, when in her 86th year. Mr. and Mrs. Hord's only child, David P. Hord, was born January 22, 1874, on the old Penry home farm in Radnor township, and was educated at the Ohio Normal University at Ada. He is now in charge of the Citizens' Telephone Company's exchange at Prospect, having been transferred here from Mount Gilead, where he had worked for the company for 17 months. He resides with his father. After his marriage, Mr. Hord lived on his father-in-law's farm until 1888, when he bought a farm of 86 1/2 acres in Radnor township, a mile east of the Penry farm. He built an eight-room frame house on the farm and otherwise improved the place, and engaged in general farming and stock-raising until June, 1904, when he removed to Prospect village and purchased his present large, nine-room residence, located on North Water street, on the banks of the Scioto River. Politically, Mr. Hord is a strong Republican. He has been a Mason since 1869, being a member of Mount Carmel Lodge, No. 303, F. & A. M., at Richwood, and he and his wife are both members of the Order of the Eastern Star. Mr. Hord is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic. His son is a member of Prospect Lodge, No. 444, F. & A. M.; Order of the Eastern Star; and Knights of Pythias.

The land office at Richmond, Virginia show that on Apr 20, 1689 Roger Tillman recieved patent to 1,060 acres located in bristol Parish, Charles City, virginia from Nathaniel bacon, Pres. of Council. This was for the transportation of 22 persons into the colony. This would indicate that Roger Tillman was a man of means at this time, since the patent was no doubt in the form of headrights. These headrights were granted to persons who would, in reality, have been "indentured servants," or persons who lacked the price of transportation from England. Thsi servant class was widely inclusive. In it were farm laborers, machanics, masons, carpenters, shipbuilders, and often educated but in pecunious clerks, tutors and teachers, they sold themselves for a special period, to planters in the Colonies prepared to pay the cost of their voyage. Not only did the importing planters acquire their labor for "their time", but something that was even more coveted, thier headrights for the period of his fence the indentured servant was really a white slave, and as such was bought and sold, given as wedding presents to children, bequested in wills along with horses, cows, and other livestock of the plantation, just as was his successor, the negroe slave. this would indicate that roger Tillman was of sufficient means to pay the cost of transportation of 22 persons.

This settlement, known as Fort tillman was located on the south side of the Appomattox River at a place called "Moneus-ANOCK", {Monk's Neck] beginning at ye mouth of ye Great Branch and runneth up that Branch, beginning at ye mouth of ye Great Branch and runneth up that branch, being thence to gravelly Run. Present day-Dinwiddie Co., Va.
