 HUSBAND  - Levi VAN HOOSE
  Levi was buried on the Lori Pelphrey Flats, and when the Paintsville Dam was
built he was moved to the new Johnson County Cemetery.  We have recently place
a tombstone on his grave, lot 17 space 22.  Levi owned land in Cabell Co. Va.
deeded by his father-in-law William Clark "for one dollar and the love he bore
him as father-in-law".  After the death of his wife, Sarah, in 1828 he took
his younger children John, William, and Elizabeth to Kentucky to live with his brother Valentine. 
   Ref-Parson's and Kozee's books 1850 census.
"On one occasion, I remember we visited a turkey pen at the lower end                
of our 'old field' on Jennie's Creek, a mile from the house, and found a                
wild turkey caught in the pen!  I was much excited over this and wanted to crawl                
into the turkey trap through the trench leading in, but Father would not let me, 
as he said the turkey would hurt me with its wings.  So father went in himself and 
broke its neck and we took it and went our way, the turkey being added to Father's burden."
  "A few years prior to this event, some wild bears invaded this same field and made havoc 
among the foasting ears growing therein.  They would visit at night and keot hidden in daylight.  
Several attempts were made to start them with dogs, but it so happened that they 
did not come on those nights when the hunters were looking for them.  They were cunning 
bears and not easily taken in.  After ceasing to search for them, Old Uncle Levi Van Hoose 
was looking for squirrels one day not far from this same field and probably waiting for night 
to come so as to slip into the corn again.  He fired on them with a squirrel shot and killed one 
of Mrs. B's children, whereupon she emigrated and was never heard of in these parts afterwards.  
So we had good bear meat to eat, in compensation for the stolen roasting ears."

CHILD  3 - John C VAN HOOSE    Will is dated the 29 Dec 1888.
