Subject: [SCOBEE-L] SCOBY SCRIBE VOLUME IV ISSUE 2 DATED MAY, 1986
Date: Thu, 22 Apr 1999 23:08:42 -0500


EVELYN BELLIS, 108 West Prospect Ave., Hackettstown, NJ 07840 needs
information on the parents of Samuel Scobey who was born 1772 and
married 1805 in Middlesex County, NJ to Elizabeth Frizealear. Evelyn
also needs information on the names, births, marriages, and deaths of
the children of Samuel and Elizabeth.

CORRECTION:
1985 Volume, page 13. Scoby Lineage of Evelyn Colby Bailey Bellis: Abbie
m. second to Samuel Button, NOT Beeton.

ABOUT THIS ISSUE:
This issue contains Scoby information from the first 6 census records of
the United States, as compiled from the Accelerated Indexing System.
(Please consider possible errors in the System.) Not only does this put
all the information in one place, but it shows the western movement and
the influx and growth of the Scobie family. In a few cases this data has
appeared in prior issues, but I felt it important that all the
information be together. Your editor, Susan Ingalls

SHUTTLE CHALLENGER ACCIDENT TOUCHES IN PERRY
The flight of the space shuttle Challenger reached deep into Ralls
County and the Perry Community last Tuesday. Flight Commander Francis
Richard Scobee, USAF (ret.) was the grandson of a former Perry resident
and is related to many people living in the Perry area. The following
story was drafted by JoAnne Scobee Bumgarner giving the family ties of
Scobee to the Perry area.

by JoAnne Scobee Bumgarner
Last week all our lives stopped a few minutes as we were caught up in
the space drama that unfolded on our television screens. To paraphrase:
No man is an island; no man stands alone; my existence is diminished by
the loss of any man.
FRANCIS RICHARD SCOBEE, Commander of the Challenger, was not just any
man. There was a time when his life touched Ralls County and Perry. He
was his grandfather's namesake. As a young man the elder Richard Scobee
had gone to the state of Washington to marry, work for the railroad,
raise his children, and enjoy the arrival of his grandchildren.
Later, in the 1960's after his wife's death, he came back for a Scobee
cousin reunion at Santa Fe. He met the former Marie Scobee of Perry, and
when he returned to Washington, he corresponded with her. Finally he
returned to marry her and live in Perry.
A picture of young Richard appeared in an appointed spot on the TV set
showing him as a graduate from high school. Later there was a picture
showing him as an Air Force pilot. As a fourth cousin, I seemed far
removed from the activities surrounding his life.
Francis Richard was an enthusiastic pilot and had a terrific desire to
be in the space program. I recall reading a letter he wrote to his
grandfather that announced his acceptance into that program. He came
once to Perry for a visit. His picture was on a huge poster with other
astronauts in our Revere High classroom. Thus came my limited connection
with this man of history.
Last year when he was the co-pilot on a voyage to outer space, I felt
that Richard had surely spent a long time working toward his goal. A
person would have to be very dedicated to learn and serve all those
years before that first trip.
>From television interviews we heard him state that he knew and realized
the danger involved, but the smile on his face showed that same
enthusiasm he had written about in that letter to his grandfather.
Scobee was named to head the six-day mission of the space shuttle after
completing a successful space flight in 1984 as co-pilot with Walter
Crippen.
Scobee was elected to the space program in 1978, as one of 35 men and
women in the NASA's shuttle program.
He was a retired Air Force major and held a master's degree in erospace
(sic) engineering. He was based at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
The first flight into space for Scobee was the 11th into space. The
ill-fated flight last week was the 25th.
Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Harms of Laddonia, last fall while visiting her
brother, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Scobee of Enemclaw, Washington, spent an
afternoon with Commander Scobee of Auburn, Washington, hearing of his
adventures and accomplishments. The Harms were the proud recipient of a
Patch of Scobee space shuttle flight in 1984. Each flight has its own
patch designed for them...

BIOGRAPHY OF LETTIE STOVER HUNTER
Lettie was born in the town where her grandmother had been married. John
Stover, Lettie's father, was a rural mail carrier; he retired when she
was just five, and he died her first year in high school in the home
where he had been born. Lettie was a good student and was valedictorian
of the Carterville High School class of 1947. Then she started attending
Southern Illinois University while working as a bookkeeper for Venable
Oil Company. Through her girlfriend's boyfriend, Lettie met Lawrence
Hunter in September of 1948, and they were married the following fall in
a small ceremony at the Walnut Street Baptist Church in Carbondale.
Lettie continued her education and in 1951 graduated with a Bachelor of
Education in Business.
After graduation, Lettie worked as an accountant for the Kroger Company,
and in 1953, Ethel was born. Lettie returned to work in 1960 as an
accountant for International Staple, and three years later, Larry was
born. After working a short time for Central Technology she retired due
to health problems. Both children followed in their mother's footsteps
by graduating from Carterville High School and Southern Illinois
University. Ethel married Richard Holladay; they lived in DuQuoin,
Illinois where Ethel teaches high school business classes. Larry is an
account executive for WDDD radio in Marion, Illinois, and has not yet
married.
With the exception of about two months when she lived in Marion, Lettie
has lived all her life in the house which her father purchased in 1910
and in which she was born. Her only brother, Bill, lives in St. Louis,
but her mother, now 93, and Larry live with her and Lawrence.
Lettie has been a Sunday School teacher at Carterville Baptist Church
for over 25 years. She enjoys collecting antiques and doing genealogy.
