SARGENT-JUSTUS




















Arthur Sargent wed Winifred Justus
December 5, 1933
Marshall, Clark co. Illinois
he was 25, she was 20
both reside in Linton, Indiana
Now my first question comes to mind....why did this couple go over into another state to get married? Could it have to be age requirement, or something else. I know it couldn't be a pregnant fact, dad (the couples first child) wasn't born until 11 months later the following November. Grandpa was well over the legal age, as for grandma; her father had already passed on at this point, so she didn't have to have his consent.
If anyone can point me in the direction of the marriage custom of the 1930's in Illinois or Indiana do leave your comments . Thanks.

James Hillory Sargent and grandkids

Thanks to my family connection of Kara, who is my father's cousin I have been able to add another photo of my father to my collection.

Daddy (jimmy) is the oldest here, sitting on steps with grandfather. Jeff is standing just above him, with Kara hiding behind, and John next to her. The two in James' lap are Joan and David.
Dad has a younger sister Jody who wasn't in this picture.

The photo was taken late summer of 1944, so dad was about 9 1/2 going on 10 yrs old. Everyone was sitting on the steps of dad's parents , Art and Winnie house in Garden City, MI.

What is special about this photo of my father is , I really never have seen pictures of him at younger ages to know what he looked like. So Kara , keep them coming!

The top portion of this is the ending of the 'male'
with James signing to the fact of knowing
that the above statements are true.
Then beginning with Vercie's part of the application,
I have noted that there is no middle name for
vercie anywhere and am still looking to come
across one.
Vercie was born in Pike county Indiana
on October 22, 1887
*This is where I have come across different birth year, could be 1888 which is what has been on the census .
she list as her occupation , a house keeper

SARGENT / HEACOCK 50th Wedding Anniversary

This picture was sent to me by my 2nd cousin Kara , who's mom is my grandfather's sister. Thanks Kara, for finding me on ANCESTRY (dot) com and being a FaceBook Friend! PLEASE click photo to enlarge it. TRANSCRIPTION

This is my great grandparents James H. SARGENT and Vercie HEACOCK Sargent. Once you get the enlargement of this photo , the date on it is May 3rd of 1955. They were married May 13th 1905. Toward the end of the article, mention of having ONE great grand child , of course is nameless, but I know it is me! I was born in February of 1954 and the 50th anniversary was May of 1955. Most of the grandkids were still kids themselves,and my cousins from Aunt Jodie weren't even born at the time..

Now I will have to do some digging (as I said in earlier post, I would) to find out just how far back I can go with this 1rst relationship. I am actually looking at the straight pedigree line of SARGENT. Next would be that as Great-Great grandchild of James' parents Jasper SARGENT and Mary Elizabeth ADKIN. Jasper and Mary had 7 children -3Girls and 4Boys. Great Grandpa James was their 5th child. Haven't really gotten into the branching out of families yet. Guess it is now time to do this if I am to see how far back this may go.

UPDATE: 11/30/16,
Answer is  NO


Now if anyone is part of my SARGENT extended family , do let me know.

Reading back over this artical I can see there is a possiblity of not being the 1rst great great grandchild with so many sibling of both James and Vercie. James having 3 sisters and 3 bothers , Vercie having 3 brothers and 5 sisters.

Vercie's parents were Perry Heacock and Emily Bell Luttrell

BIRTH RANK RELATIONSHIPS-1rst born

I am the first born child of my father.
The first born grandchild of my grandfather.
Born the first Great Grandchild of James & Vercie Sargent, just months before their 50th wedding anniversary.

I am also the oldest cousin of both immediate families on both mother and father's side.

Just wonder how far back I can go...guess I will have to start digging into the cousins and other branches now to see how far back this first born ranking go. UPDATE: 03/2015 click this LINK to see what I found I rank 16

Have you ever wondered where you are in the ranks. Here is an interesting site to check out dealing with your birth ranking and even marriage. There is some more fun at the PBS It's My Life .

Rest in Peace Aunt Andi

The passing of my aunt in California was one which I was prepared for but still got blind sided when getting the text hours later.

Aunt Andi was my grandmother's first born daughter, my mom's big sis, Uncle Pete's wife of 57 years, mother to two boys and an only girl, my cuz Carol.

Born in Illinois in 1931 passing in 2009. She and Uncle Pete were married since 1952 which would have been 57 years this year. They are the 2nd longest married relatives I know to be in my family in my life time. Just short a year from my great grandparents James and Vercie Sargent who were married 58 years.


My earliest memory of Aunt Andi was just after my folk were separated/divorced and mom moved with her two young daughters into her sister's home . Tho two families under the same roof for how many year, I don't know. Mom, my younger sis and me lived in the first bedroom on the right down the hall.

While there, I started school, became a brownie, spent some really memorable Christmas' I still have found thoughts of her every time I make a peanut butter/jelly sandwich. The cousins which were just the boys spent a lot of time as "the BIG ones and LITTLE ones"(inside joke, only the four of us would understand). We had our own adventures in and around that house and neighbor hood. Climbing trees and eating doggie snacks (don't ask, I am sure you did something as gross as that back in the days of youth!) How about all the times going to the school and seeing who could swing on the swings the highest AND then JUMPING out just as you got to the highest point.


I remember the time the four of us "daredevils" went to a local strawberry patch which was being turned into some building so the neighbor kids went and picked the last harvest and with four of us and two buckets each, like the 5gallon buckets FULL of strawberries and brought them home to Aunt Andi . I don't think she was to happy, but she cleaned them up and packed them all in the freezer. By the way, once mom got home, she got half of them ...to give away , to do something with. To this day, this might be why I don't like strawberries anything.

Christmas time was full of smells , the food, the treats, and even the candle making. I see Aunt Andi as the original Suzy Homemaker. The one Christmas that stands out was the year, actually just a few days before my youngest cuz carol came into our lives. Tho aunt Andi was confined to bed, she did come out to rest on the couch watching the 4 of us kids opening the gifts one by one from the youngest to the oldest. The youngest were the three under the oldest which was me. No fun for yours truly but she got a kick out of it I am sure.

There are a lot of fond memories but those I have of her now are the phone calls we have shared the past several years. I do plan to continue those calls to keep in touch with Uncle Pete for as long as I can.

Rest in peach, no more pain , you are now in heaven with grandma and mom. Will see you when I get there!
