GEORGE MCVEY AND RUTH BICKETT, by Helen
Means (Bickett) Fiegel.
I know very little about my grandfather, George McVey Bickett. His middle name
(and my father's) gave me a problem in tracing family history. I thought I must
have McVey ancestors, but his parents followed what I have since learned was a
common practice -- naming children for in-laws who are in no way related by
blood. George's middle name came from the married name of his great-aunt Peggy
Irwin McVey, who must have been a beloved aunt. And the name came down another
generation, to my father.

DEATH OF MARGARET McVEY.
Died at the residence of Mr. James
Williams in Jasper township, Oct. 26th 1883, Mrs. Margaret McVey, aged 85.
Mrs. McVey's maiden name was Irwin, and she was born if intelligent and
christian parents near Lexington, Ky. She very early became an orphan by the
loss of both of her parents and for some years lived with an uncle by the
name of James Lynn. In accordance with the times she lived her secular
education was limited. She learned the arts of industry as practiced at that
day, such as spinning, weaving. &c. In the year 1817 her sister Martha,
having married Mr. George Junkin, she with the other members of the family,
consisting of two older sisters and a younger brother, left Kentucky and
removed to Greene Co., O. Soon after she made a public profession of
religion and became a member of the Association congregation of Massie's
Creek under the pastoral care of Rev. Robert Armstrong. At the organization
of the congregation of Cesars Creek (now Jamestown) she became a member and
continued with the exception of a few years she resided in Adams Co., till
the day of her death. The writer of this memoir first became acquainted with
Mrs. McVey (familiarly called aunt Peggy) about the beginning of the year
1841. At this time and several years previous she with two older sisters,
Mrs. Crawford and Ann, occupied a part of the residence of their
brother-in-law, Mr. Junkin. It was a privilege of the writer to be a member
of this household for some two or three years. During his sojourn with these
sisters he was presented with the truth and beauty of our holy religion as
manifested in their every day christian life. It was also his privilege to
witness the marriage of Miss Margaret, to Col. Wm. McVey of Adams' county,
O., in January 1844, by Rev. Dr. Samuel Wilson. This marriage was most happy
to all parties and was soon followed by the marriage of Mrs. Crawford to a
Mr. Robinson of Union County. Mrs. McVey soon moved to the home of her
husband, with whom she lived happily for twelve years. She is spoken of in
her new home as being highly esteemed by a large circle of relatives and
friends, and her memory is still fondly cherished by them. After the death
of her husband she returned to the neighborhood of her old home and kept
house with her sister Ann, 'till too infirm to attend to household duties.
The last few years of her life she spent with Mrs. James Williams, her
niece, by whom she was kindly cared for 'till the close, when with a short
illness and little suffering she passed away. Her sight and hearing remained
quite good for a person of her age, but for the last two years her memory
failed so that she did not know her friends at times. Her funeral was
attended by a large circle of neighbors and friends. The funeral exercises
were conducted by Rev. W. A. Robb, her pastor, and Rev. Dr. Samuel Collins.
Mrs. McVey's life was symmetrical, beautiful and pure. She was true to her
convictions of faith and duty and upright and conscientious in al her
relations in life. Quiet and unassuming in her manner, she had a force of
character that commanded attention and respect. She lied a holy life and
died a blessed death, for it is written, "Blessed are the dead which die in
the Lord from henceforth. Yea, saith the Spirit that they may rest from
their labors, and their works do follow them."

JAMES M. BARBER. Among those who have passed away and who have left behind them
a good record as men and citizens, may be properly mentioned Mr. BARBER. A man
of unbounded energy and enterprise, he most assuredly left his footprints on the
sands of time and presented an example of industry and perseverance worthy of
emulation. Commencing with modest means, such was his diligence and his good
judgment in the disbursement of his capital, that at his death he left a large
estate including five hundred and twenty-one acres of land which was divided up
among his children before the widow had been assigned her dowry of one hundred
and nineteen acres, which with its buildings and other improvements constitutes
one of the most desirable country homes in Greene County.
Mr. BARBER was born January 18, 1822, in Cedarville Township, and was a man of
strong character, warm in his likes and dislikes, but of that temperament which
drew toward him hosts of friends and which made him greatly beloved, especially
by his near neighbors and his own family. He was formerly a Democrat in politics
but during the latter part of his life was an active worker in the ranks of the
Republican party. He was warmly interested in temperance movements and totally
opposed to the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors. He kept himself
thoroughly posted upon current events and loved to travel—a pastime in which he
was joined by his amiable wife who enjoyed this recreation as much as himself.
Their last journey was to Jacksonville, Fla., where Mr. BARBER was attacked with
cerebro hemorrhage, from which his death caused January 25, 1888. The bereaved
wife returned home with the remains of her husband and they were laid to rest in
Cedarville cemetery while over them has been erected the finest monument in this
part of the country.
The marriage of James BARBER and Miss Mary L. BICKETT was celebrated at the
bride’s home, her father’s farm, near Jasper, April 13, 1852, and not quite
three years afterward, December 27, 1854, they removed to the home where Mrs.
BARBER still lives. Mrs. BARBER was born May 6, 1833, in Jasper Township and is
the daughter of John BICKETT, who came to Ohio from Pennsylvania in 1818,
settling in Xenia Township, this county. The paternal grandparents, John and
Elizabeth BICKETT, were natives of Ireland and of Scotch-Irish descent, and
settled in Pennsylvania in the year 1797. The early progenitors of the family
were Protestants as their descendants have uniformly been. Grandfather BICKETT
upon coming to America settled in Pennsylvania where he spent the remainder of
his life. His wife subsequently joined her children in this county and died
about 1839 or 1840 having attained to the advanced age of eighty years. The
BICKETTS in coming to America were on the ocean twenty weeks.
John BICKETT was married in 1821 to Miss Peggy DEAN, daughter of Daniel DEAN,
who removed to Ohio from Lexington, Ky., at a very early day. The maiden name of
his wife was Elizabeth STEELE, also of Kentucky.
To Mr. and Mrs. BARBER there was born a family of twelve children, all of whom
are living. John C. is a prosperous merchant of Cedarville; Robert Lee is
married, has one child and is engaged in merchandising at South Salem, this
State; he visited California during the gold excitement and is a very
intelligent man, well informed upon all general subjects and especially the
history of the great West. Charles M. is married and farming on a part of the
old homestead, about one-half mile from his mother; he has two children—Colin
and Marie. Huldah J., a mute, married Charles H. RICE, afflicted in the same
manner. They however, have a bright little boy, Jamie, who can do enough talking
for the family and can converse with his parents by means of his fingers as
readily as they. The little fellow has considerable knowledge of telegraphing
and is more than ordinarily bright and promising. They live on a farm a short
distance north of Cedarville. Alice is the wife of R. S. ANDERSON and the mother
of the two bright children—Ethel and Eula; they live on their own farm near
Clifton, this county; Laura H. is the wife of D. S. COLLINS, and they also live
on a farm near Clifton; Miss Effie makes her home with her brother in
Cedarville; A. D. carries on the home farm for his mother in a highly creditable
manner; Norah, Lea, Luna and Jessie complete the list. Mr. BARBER from his youth
was a consistent member of the United Presbyterian Church, to which Mrs. BARBER
belongs as does also her whole family except one son.

MATHEW A. BICKETT, one of the representative farmers of Xenia Township, owns and
operates a fine farm lying some two and one-half miles from Xenia Court House. He is a native of Greene County, Ohio, where he was born January 19, 1831, in a
house which is only about a quarter of a mile from his present home. His
father, William R. BICKETT, was one of the pioneers of the county having made
choice of it for a dwelling place in the year 1818, while it was yet a
wilderness. The region which had recently been the home of the Indian,
shortly began to wear the aspect of civilization, as the advent of the white man
caused the original forest to disappear, and its place to be taken by fields of
waving corn and golden grain.
William BICKETT was a native of Coaquilla Valley, Pa., where he was born in the
year 1796 or 1798, the date is uncertain, and which was his home until he
arrived at the age of about twenty-one when he started for the “far West” in
company with his mother, sister, and one brother. The party reached Greene
County, in the year 1818, having made the trip with a six-horse team. The
first winter was passed in the house of Robert HAMMELL, a brother-in-law of Mr.
BICKETT. In the following spring he bought about one hundred and fifty
acres of woodland upon which he and his John erected a log cabin that was the
home of their mother for a number of years. As rapidly as possible they
cleared and improved the farm, and provided for the wants of the mother and
sister who were dependent upon their exertions. Deer, wild turkey and
other game abounded, and they could always procure plenty for the table by
simply using their trusty muskets.
1827 William R. BICKETT and Miss Isabella ALEXANDER were united in marriage, and
took up their residence on the old home farm. The fruit of this union was
six children, three boys, and three girls. The boys are all married and
living within one-half mile of the old homestead. Mr. BICKETT died in
1865. Mrs. BICKETT survived him some twenty years, departing for the
better land in April, 1885.
subject of this sketch was educated in the commons schools, and assisted on the
farm in the intervals. When school life was over, he continued to work on
the home place until about the time of his father’s death. May 30, 1865,
our subject and Miss Caroline E. KENDALL were united in marriage. He then
purchased his present place of one hundred and eighty-one acres of land, and
began business for himself as a general farmer and stock-raiser. His stock
consists for the most part of graded Short-horns in cattle, and a fine strain of
hogs. Mr. BICKETT has no political aspirations, but exercises his rights
as a citizen in favor of the Republican party. He is a highly esteemed
member of the society, and a devoted adherent of the church of his fathers, the
United Presbyterian, and is a regular attendant upon the services of that body
in the town of Xenia.
Mrs. BICKETT was born in Greene County in 1838, about two miles from her present
home, and is an intelligent and amiable lady well fitted to make a happy home
for her husband and children. Mr. and Mrs. BICKETT are the parents of
seven children whose names are: Clark K., Charles A.; William Albert;
Annie M.; John W.; Elinor I.; and David Cameron, all at home, and all except the
eldest attending school. Their parents are determined they shall have the
best educational advantages that can be obtained, before permitting them to
start out for themselves in the world.
Mr. BICKETT is a first-class practical farmer, and not only provides a comfortable
and commodious home for his family, but also considers the wants of his stock.
He has one of the finest barns in the township, it being 40x60 feet with shed
and corn crib of 19 feet additional. Most of the shrubbery, and all the
improvements upon the farm are the result of his own labor, and reflects great
credit upon his ability and taste in the selection of the ornamental features of
his beautiful home. He derives great enjoyment from the society of
congenial friends, and is deservedly popular with all classes, but finds his
great pleasure in the bosom of his affectionate and happy family.
