Obituary1878 Obnituary of John Buckner Lendrum was John Buckner Lendrum’s grandson, Stephens Laurie Blakely, kept extensive scrapbooks of newspaper clippings. In many cases he had the clippings made into typed transcriptions. There is no original of this obituary, but it was among family papers taken from Stephens’ home “Beechwood” when the estate was liquidated.

John Buckner Lendrum’s death was recorded thus: (It seems that the extract came from a newspaper clipping, although there is no notation of the date or issue. Taken from a typed copy found in the attic at "Beechwood".) "Esquire J. B. Lendrum died at his home, 619 Scott Street, yesterday morning in the 74th year of his age. The funeral takes place tomorrow at 2 o'clock. John Buckner Lendrum was born on the 19th day of August, 1804 at Oak Grove, Va. He was the son of Dr.Thomas Keith Lendrum, and his mother's maiden name was Margaret Buckner. His father was a regimental surgeon in a Virginia command in the Revolutionary War. The deceased came to Covington in 1830 and has resided here ever since. He served 12 years as City Clerk and several years besides as Magistrate; also as Mayor pro tempore in the administration of Mayor Cyrus Preston and S. W. Foley. In 1836 he was initiated in Washington Lodge, I.00F in this city. He was also, at his death, a member of the Simon Kenton Pioneer Association. Both these Societies will attend his funeral, having already called a meeting for this purpose. Esquire Lendrum has been failing fast, from mere old age for several months. He leaves a widow and three children, and very many of this community, who have learned to respect him as a good and venerable citizen, will unite with them in mourning his death." in 1878. 
Death*20 May 1878 He died on 20 May 1878 at Covington, KY, at age 73 His death was recorded thus: (It seems that the extract came from a newspaper clipping, although there is no notation of the date or issue.

Burial*21 June 1878 He was buried on 21 June 1878 at Highland Cemetery, Fort Mitchell, Kenton County, KY.1,3 
Biography*  The available evidence concerning the immediate heirs of Thomas Lendrum indicate that the three girls, Elizabeth L. Collins, Harriet, and Lucy E. Lendrum all remained in Virginia. Walter T. Lendrum attended West Point, married, raised a family, and served in the Mexican War. Possibly, he lived for a time in New York. Here are the texts of two letters which came from the attic at "Beechwood", the home of Lilly Hudson Lendrum Blakelys' son, Stephens Laurie, which is located in Kenton County, Ky.
     The first letter is from Harriet Lendrum addressed to her brother, John B. Lendrum. It is only a fragment and so the date and entire contents and the order of the pages is not known. Each page will be shown as a separate paragraph:
     "her mother and only eleven years old and very pretty and so is Joesia. I wrote to your father a short time since and informed him of Mr. Jetts death. You said nothing about your friend Georgie Phelps. Where is she now? I really was surprised to hear old Mr. and Mrs. Benton were still living. I suppose the old man is nearly and idiot. He seemed to have so little sense when I saw him. I was sorry to hear of Laura child being afflicted. I hope Kate married well. She is a very sweet person. Is old Mr. Preston still living? Do you know anything of Mrs. Fairchild? I really like to...."
     "..before but I had a rising on my finger so that I could not write without a good deal of pain. I am now writing on Sunday when they are all at church because it is the only quiet time I have and I can't write in a bustle. I was very glad to get a letter from you and to hear you all were well. This has been one of the coldest winters so early in the season I have known for a good many years. The ground is covered with a deep snow and very cold. Do you expect to spend a Merry Christmas? I expect to spend a very sad one. It will be the only Christmas I have spent without some of the boys kin, their mother's death and....."
     "scarcely ever go out even to Church. We have a fine preacher, Bishop Payne. He is very popular and is calculated to do some good. He is a devoted Christian. I have not heard a Methodist minister more than two or three times since I left Covington and I miss it very much for although I like to hear Bishop Payne I like my own church best. I hear very often from Fred. He says his little boy is a very fine child and the great comfort to him. Says he is the greatest chatter box he ever heard. Warren scarcely ever writes but we hear from him through Doct. Marye. The other boys are well. John is in Memphis and......."
     "I am very glad to hear Thom is doing so well. I hope he will try and lay up his money. Is Mrs. Porter still in the office? What has become of our cousin Mrs. Whips? Give my love to her if she is in Covington. I must now close this uninteresting letter for I have nothing to write about for there never was a duller place than this. Remember me affectionately to your father, mother, and Harry and any one that asks for me also Thomas when you see him. I should like so much to see you all once more but never expect to have that pleasure. Yours, Aunt H. E. Lendrum"

          1856 letter addressed to John B. Lendrum from his niece, Marie Lendrum
                    Marie, daughter of Warren T. Lendrum
Dear Uncle;
Once again I have retained my pen for the purpose of devoting a few moments to you. I have to confine myself to a few moments as I am seated by the sick bed side of Sallie. and am liable to be called off at any time to administer to her wants. She has been confined to her bed for the past two weeks with a "Nervous Fever" and it is impossible to say when she will be able to leave it. She is of course completely prostrated not being able to take any nourishment in her weak state. The doctor has been attending her constantly but does not think there is anything very serious the matter with her, but of course it will take her some weeks to recover her accustomed health. It was extremely negligent of me dear Uncle not to have acknowledged your letter sent by Mr. Taylor and the daguerreotypes but I hope it is not quite too late to do so now and say how much I appreciated both. Lillie must have grown amazingly since I saw her judging from her picture but it does not flatter her in the least. It is not nearly as pretty as she is. The same can be said of the boys but you know that is characteristic of all daguerreotypes. We are looking forward every day for John's arrival. He has not written lately and as that is the case I think intends taking us by surprise as he usually does. I think that we will give up on anticipated visits to Virginia for the present as we received a letter from Cousin Maria a day or two since, written of course in great depression of spirits stating that poor Tom Wheelwright was with them and in dying condition. I suppose you know that he was in decline, did you not? I am afraid that the next accounts will be that he is dead indeed. I sincerely sympathize with his afflicted family. His mother is so completely wrapped up in him. Even if this were not the case I do not suppose that Mary (John's wife) would feel in the spirits for visiting, being afflicted herself having lost her brother a month ago. We heard some charming news a few weeks since, the removal of the troops from Arkansas to Old points. If that is the case, of course, John will be sent probably for two or three years indeed, I really hope it is something more than idle reports, as he never had an agreeable station since he has been in the army. I suppose you have heard of Colonel Taylor's removal from Texas. He left here about two weeks ago with his family for the purpose of spending the length of time with Mrs. Taylor in Cincinnati. He is probably now on his way. You cannot imagine how much we miss Sallie and Mary. We have always been so intimate. Upton is now at Cedar Park. He was here for a few days but could not resist the temptation of returning. He now talks of going back to Sante Fe but whether he will carry his intentions out or not I cannot say. He is not very communicative. I suppose your city as well as ours has been "politically agitated" for the past few weeks, has it not? Indeed that has been the topic of the day here. Even the ladies seemed to take as much interest as the opposite sex. I formed an exception however for since we are not permitted to vote I think it is a decided waste of time and breath to espouse either party. Don't you think so? It is getting late dear Uncle and I will have to close. Do pardon the penmanship of this letter as I am writing with an old stick (it cannot be called a pen) Give my kindest love to Aunt E. and the children in which Sallie joins me
                    Yours most affectionately,
                         Maria

     Family stories say that John B. Lendrum, the son of Dr. Thomas Lendrum, went to Kentucky, Campbell County, around 1829-1830, and that he was born Aug. 19, 1804 at Oak Grove in Westmoreland Co., Va. However, the 1850 census for Kenton County, Ky. shows John B. Lendrum as age 39, which would place his birth at 1811. In either case, he married and started a family rather late. (As also did his father Thomas Lendrum Jr., which explains what at first seemed a gap in generations.) By 1850 John appears in the 3rd Ward of Covington, Kenton Co., Ky. His occupation is City Clerk and he resides with his wife, Elizabeth (Rudd) who is age 29 and is a native Kentuckian. They have two sons, Thomas W. age 3, and evidently names for his Uncle, and the infant Harry Stokes, age 1. The family is wealthy enough to include a maid named Mary Roe, age 17, who came from Germany. Since John B. Lendrum did not marry his wife until 1846, at which time he was either 42 or 35, both of which are a bit old for the day, he must have quite a past waiting to be discovered.

By the year 1861 John Lendrum was living on Garrard Street, between Third and Fourth, in Covington, Ky. and is called, in the Cincinnati City Directory, a general agent e.s. His daughter, Lillie Hudson Lendrum, who was born Sept. 13, 1852, was by this time, nine years old. Her future husband, Laurie J. Blakely, has just arrived in town (1861) for he is listed, also, in the same City Directory as -------------.
The court records for August 28, 1862 show (order book 1, p. 316) that John B. Lendrum produced his commission as justice of the peace for the 1st District of City of Covington. In 1871 when the Directory was published, the Lendrums were living at the N.W. corner of Greenup and Fifth Street and John B. Lendrum was employed as a store keeper at Wessel's and Schultz. By now, son Harry S. was serving as a clerk at the Post Office, at 86 E. Fifth Street in Covington. Harry was later to marry Sarah Morrison, move to Brooklyn, N.Y. and have six children: Ralph Hemmingway, Harry Stokes Jr., Paul Grant, Earl Randolph, Victor Stephen and Lillian Hudson. The other son, Thomas W. disappeared and is reported through family tales to have gone to prison for embezzlement, a great source of embarrassment to an otherwise outstanding family who practically pioneered Covington, Ky.

John Buckner Lendrum was born in Westmoreland Co., Virginia on August 19, 1804. He was the son of Thomas Keith Lendrum, a Revolutionary Wr Soldier. John Lendrum came to covington in 1829 and Married Elizabeth Rudd. His people came from Scotland and had settled in Westmoreland Co., Virginia in 1680.2

MEMBERSHIP1878 He was a member in 1878 at Covington, Kenton County, KY, A newspaper clipping (date unknown) states:
The Fourth and The Pioneers
A goodly gathering of good citizens of various ages, sexes and conditions in life greeted the Pioneer Association at its meeting yesterday to celebrate the Nation's Natal day and to elect Society officers for another year. The old board of officers was re-chosen: president H.H Martin, Vice President John Mackoy, Secretary Napoleon B. Stephens, Treasurer John T. Lewis. According to programme, the Declaration of Independence was read by Mr. Stephens; a minute of the life and a tribute to the worth of character of the late John B. Lendrum was read by Mr. Mackoy; and the oration of the day was gracefully delivered by Col. Robert Richardson. It was a delightful half-hour's discourse,devoted mainly to the utility of anniversaries in preserving public memories worth to be preserved. The eloquent speaker well said that when a people lost the memory of its Natal Day, the glory and genius of what people was from that time declined.

     Mrs. Lily L. Blakely, mother of Attorney Stephens L. Blakely, former Commonwealth Attorney of Kenton County died in Chicago, ILL, yesterday, when visiting her daughter, Mrs. L. C. Baldwin. Mrs. Blakely was born in Covington September 13, 1850. She was the widow of Laurie J. Blakely, widely known Cincinnati Editorial writer.
     Besides Attorney Blakely and Mrs. Baldwin she is survived by two sons. Rev Paul L. Blakely, editor of a religious magazine, America, New York City, and L. J. Blakely, Jr., advertising manager of a gas and electric appliance company, Covington; and two daughters, Sisters Mary Agatha and Jane Frances Blakely, Georgetown, KY.

Funeral services will be held from his residence tomorrow morning. Requiem mass will be solemnized at St. Mary's Cathedral by Rev. Paul L. Blakely, son of the decesaed. Burial will be in St. Mary's Cemetery. 
Birth*13 September 1852 She was born on 13 September 1852 at Covington, Kenton County, KY.2,3 
 She was the daughter of John Buckner Lendrum and Elizabeth Hudson Rudd
MARRIAGE*28 June 1877  On 28 June 1877 The Court House records of the marriage give the following information. Lilly H. Landrum was married June 28, 1877 in Covington and was 21 when she married. (This would put her date of birth as 1856. Other records give her birthdate as 1852) It was her first marriage and she said her father was born in Virginia and her mother was born in Kentucky. Her father was present when the court house record was made.

The court house record refers to Laurie J. Blakely as Laurene J. Blakely residing in Covington. He stated that he was 30 years old, but actually he was 33. His occupation was listed as Lawyer and he says he was born in Virginia. He stated that his father was born in Virginia and his mother was born in Pennsylvania. This does not square with census data from several years that show his father born in England and if Laurie Blakely was born in Virginia, it was the part that later became West Virginia. (Perhaps he wanted to establish Virginia ancestors as no doubt he was aware that his wife was from a long line of "old Virginians". --MVW 2001

Lillie Hudson Lendrum married at the age of 25, on June 28, 1877 to Laurie John Blakely of Covington, Ky. The wedding was held at the bride's home, 619 Scott Street in Covington. The groom was a Catholic, from a very Catholic family, but since the bride was Baptist, the wedding could not be held in the church. The following is a description of the wedding:

"ORANGE BLOSSOMS"
No sweeter lady was ever wedded to a worthier or genial gentleman than when Miss Lillie Lendrum was wedded to Mr. L. J. Blakely. The marriage was celebrated in simple, pretty style at the home of the Bride's parents, #619 Scott Street, yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Father Tom Major, of Cynthiana, officiating. The bride looked indisputably lovely in her pure white attire, ornamented with natural flowers; and the groom was as handsome as handsome can be. The parlors were clothed in white, decked off with flowers and pretty illuminations, and the whole presented a most charming tableau. Only a few of the nearest relatives and intimates were there. And the wedding pair took passage on the Fleetwood at 4 o'clock destined for Greenbrier, White Springs, where they will abide for a few days, and then return to their home. Among the wedding gifts were: ornamental work from her own workmanship, Miss Carrie Gedge; bracelets, Mr. Harry Lendrum; pickle jar, silver stand and spoons, Warren T. Lendrum; silver fruit spoons in case, Mrs. W. H. Mackey; a case of silver knives, Mrs. J. B. Lendrum; silver jewell casket, Mrs. Boyd; silver napkin rings, "Cousin Mollie"; pitcher and goblet, Mrs. Mary B. Ryan; silver basket, Mrs. A. J. Whipps; bouquet of elegant ---, Mrs. N. B. Stephens (Napoleon B. Stephens - all the Stephens in the Blakely family bear this name in honor of his friend. Thank goodness, it could have been Napoleon instead of Stephens!" ; another of same from "Dodo" Ryan."

It was hardly a year past the wedding date when on May 25, 1878, at the age of about 70, John B. Lendrum died.

As a newly wed couple, the first few years must have been trying because their first son, Stephens L. Blakely was born on April 23, 1878, only one month prior to his grandfathers death, and their second son, Paul Lendrum Blakely was born Feb. 27, 1880, only a month prior to his grandmother's death from what was described as a long and painful illness, and during which time she seemed to have been living with the newlyweds.

The couple was married at 619 Scott St. Covington, KY. In Stephens L. Blakely's wedding scrapbook there is a picture of "Georgia Row" at White Sulfer Springs with the note that this is where "Mr. and Mrs. B., Sr. spent their honeymoon in 1877. Looks like Jane and Stephens Woodrough selected the same spot and took the picture.

The doorbell rang and Weese, expecting the priest, answered the door carrying a lit candle (as was the custom when expecting a priest carrying the eucharist), then dropped to her knees.

MARRIAGE* Thomas Keith Lendrum II married Margaret Stoake Buckner, daughter of John Buckner and Elizabeth Washington
Birth*1760 He was born in 1760 at Port Royal, Caroline Co., VA, Scotland. 
 He was the son of Parson Thomas Landrum and Nelly (?)
Death*13 March 1812 He died on 13 March 1812 at Westmoreland County, VA, One record, Caroline County Chanery Suits says: He died in testate.
However, this may be another Thomas as there is a will for the Surgeon's Mate in the "Half Pay File." 
Biography*  He served as a Surgeon's Mate on board the "Tempest" in Virginia State Navy. "History of Caroline Co., VA" p. 451 says he was a young Port Royal physician at the outbreak of the Revolution. He joined the Continental Navy and was Surgeon's Mate on both the "Tartar" and the "Tempest" two continental privateers. He practiced in Port Royal until 1812.

Thomas Lendrum Jr. was the Physician of Port Royal, Va. and was probably born sometime between 1750 and 1758. During the war of Revolution, he served with the Virginia State Navy. Evidence of this is contained in the rather lengthy "half-pay" file which rests in the National Archives. The evidence that this particular Thomas Lendrum is the direct ancestor of Lillie Hudson Lendrum is contained in this file and proved by several letters which were found in the attic of "Beechwood", in So. Ft. Mitchell, Ky. (It is interesting to note that there were at least two Thomas Lendrums, and possibly there were even three. The several D.A.R. papers filed claiming descent from the revolutionary soldiers are as a rule incorrect. Even those of Lillie Hudson Lendrum was entirely erroneous! Since she claimed descent from a man, Warren T. Lendrum who was actually her uncle. It is easy to see how she could have made this error, since, evidently, her grandfather, Thomas Lendrum, the surgeon's name was middle aged when her father, John B. Lendrum was born. Thomas Lendrum II served as surgeon's mate on board the ship "Tempest" during the Revolutionary War. There are several proofs of this service:

     1.      December 30, 1779 he was allowed 18" of brown sugar.
          September 9, 1779 he received coffee and sugar.
          December 10, 1779 he received sugar coffee and tea.
     2.     During his time of service he was acquainted with several men who in later           years made affidavits to this fact:
     a. In 1834 John Cannady of Fauquier Co., Va. states that Thomas Landrum was a surgeon's mate who stayed with the "Tempest" until it was abandoned by the crew when the enemy took command of the River (James) and finally the vessel. Thomas had been on board at least two years and ten months prior to the capture of the "Tempest".
     b. In 1834 Charles Hayden of King George Co., Va. stated that he knew Thomas Landrum and also the fact that he died in Westmoreland County, Va., and was the son of Parson Landrum of King George Co. Both Thomas Landrum and Higdon grew up in the same area. Thomas Landrum married after the war and lived in Leedstown in Westmoreland Co., Va.
     c. William Stoke Jett (note that Thomas Lendrum's wife was named Margaret Stoake.) likewise made an affidavit in which he states that he was acquainted with Thomas Landrum, the son of Parson Lendrum of King Geo. Co., Va. He too says that after his marriage Thomas resided in Port Royal, Caroline Co. and practiced medicine. Later he moved to Westmoreland Co. where Jett was living. William Jett recalls the anecdote wherein Landrum was called upon to perform an amputation, his first, while in service on board the "Tempest".
     Following the Revolutionary War, Thomas married Margaret Stoake. It would be reasonable to assume that the wedding took place sometime between 1788 and 1790. If this date, and his presumed birthday are correct, then Thomas was probably in his mid thirties when he married. (Family stories indicate that Thomas Lendrum's wife was named Buckner but his will clearly calls her Margaret Stoake.) In fact, this name has persisted in the family up until the early 1900's, but to date no record is found of a connection with the Buckners. Perhaps the name belonged to either Margaret or Thomas' mother.
     In January of 1811, Thomas Lendrum (note that the spelling has now changed to Lendrum - the way it has persisted until the present.) wrote a will leaving to Margaret Stoke Lendrum, his property for the maintenance of his children. His youngest child, John B. (presumed Buckner) Lendrum was seven years old, at the time. His oldest daughter, Elizabeth Washington Lendrum, however, was married to Dr. Christopher Collins. Dr. Collins was named executor of the will. Thomas' wife, Mary, was to be the administrator. Evidently Margaret relinquished the right to administrator to Christopher Collins. When Collins died, his wife Elizabeth was granted letters of Administration by the Court, even though Margaret Lendrum was still alive. (Thomas Lendrum died July 12, 1811)
     Starting about 1834, Elizabeth Lendrum Collins, as a representative for the heirs, her brothers and sisters (presumably her mother now dead), started proceedings to secure the pension due as a result of the Act of Congress of July 5, 1832, granting pension rights to veterans or survivors or their heirs.
     Elizabeth had quite a job ahead of her and evidently it became necessary for her to enlist the aid of her congressman, J. Taliaferro, in an attempt to collect Thomas Lendrum's pension. Apparently there was some dispute as to when Thomas Lendrum actually terminated service, the Va. State Navy having been reduced in number prior to the close of the war. It was initially presumed that Thomas was relieved of duty at this time ________. However, it soon became apparent that two ships were retained in service past the date of reduction, these being the "Tempest" and the "Tattler". There are three affidavits in Thomas Lendrum's "half-pay" file which state that he was on board the "Tempest" as Surgeon's Mate. That being the case, J. Taliaferro was able to use the following facts from a similar case to cause the pension office to grant a pension, which allowed for Lendrum's service from the date of the ship's capture.
          Leigh's Reports - Vol. 1, p 517:
The Captain of the Tempest was named Markham and he was made prisoner when his ship was captured in Hampton Rhodes. His heirs filed suit in the Virginia Court of Appeals for half-pay and won. Taliaferro requested that the war department grant the same right to Thomas Lendrum, since it was proved that he, too, served on the vessel until it's capture and so should be entitled to the same rights as the captain.
     In May of 1835, Lucy E. Lendrum, the daughter of Thomas, and sister of Elizabeth, acted as attorney-in-fact for Harriet E. Lendrum, Thomas W. Lendrum, John B. Lendrum and Lucy E. Lendrum in granting power of attorney to the estate administrator, Mrs. Elizabeth W. Collins. In fact the estate did succeed and on May 9, 1838, received a total of $2529.74 for 27 years and 264 days half-pay pension based on the rate of $91.25 per year.
     Presumably, the heirs used their hard earned pension to support themselves, and evidently it was a greatly needed pension for their support, for Mr. Taliaferro, in an effort to speed up the proceedings, refers to the needy, unmarried heirs. One wonders what part John B. Lendrum, who was at this time, far away in Kentucky, received. It is possible that he and his brother, Warren T. Lendrum, forfeited their rights to the pension in favor to their widowed and unmarried sisters.
     Having won the initial battle for the "half-pay" pension, and presumably having exhausted the funds received, Elizabeth Collins again became active in the pension care in 1845. She reopened the issue by requesting that half-pay be allowed from Nov. 30, 1781, the date on which Thomas Lendrum terminated service (?) until April 22, 1783, the date on which the original pension had commenced. She was successful, as shown by a letter dated Sept. 17, 1845, from the Pension Office in Washington which allowed the heirs an additional 91.25 per year for the extra 18 months, a total of $127.00.
     The matter was still of interest to someone in 1854, for one Thomas C. Peek, of Hampton, Elizabeth County, Va. whose relationship is yet unknown, wrote to the Pension Office in Washington asking how much half-pay had been allowed for Thomas Lendrum, when and to whom it had been allowed.
     All of these proceedings had a two-fold effect. Initially, they granted a living to a widow and her two maiden sisters. (Harriet B. Lendrum was listed as head of the household in 1850 in Va. census and family letters indicate that she lived with Elizabeth, her sister.) The long range effect was to bring to the present the vital information necessary to establish which of the two, and possibly three, Thomas Lendrums of Virginia was the real ancestor of Lillie Hudson Lendrum. Lillie had filed D.A.R. papers on _________, stating that her descent from one Thomas Lendrum of Virginia. The papers contained only that grain of truth. Lillie was in error in most other respects, and it took the combination of the Virginia State Navy half-pay file and some personal letters found in the attic at "Beechwood" to establish the true identity of Thomas Lendrum, Surgeon's Mate. 
APPRENTI*1770 He was apprentriced in 1770 at Caroline, VA; P. 440 of "Colonial Caroline" states 1770 "Thomas Landrum - a child who appears to be in the care of nobody is ordered bound" since we know father had died by now its possible that mother was also dead. 
Will*10 January 1811 He left a will on 10 January 1811 at VA I Thomas Lendrum of Westmoreland County being very sickly and infirm, and not knowing when my desolution may take place, make and ordain this my last will and testament viz. after my just debts are paid I give to my beloved wife Margaret Stoake Lendrum, the whole of my property real and personal during her natural life for the better support of herself and for the maintenance and education and support of our children. At her death it is my will that the whole of the personal Estate may be equally divided between the surviving children and the Land to be sold for two annual payments and to be divided as aforesaid between the surviving children viz. the money arising from the sale of the land, I hereby give and confirm to Dr. Collins, Barbary and her increase forever. I constitute and appoint Dr. Christopher Collins executor and my wife Margaret Stoake (another spelling of this is Storke) Lendrum executrix of this my last will and testament as witness my hand this 10th day of January 1811.
