Notes for LAFAYETTE BROLLIAR:
Lafayette received his early rearing and education in Ohio. At the age of eleven years he moved with his parents to Keokuk County, IA, where in the little log building of the neighborhood he finished his schooling. Having inherited a knack for handicrafts, and from his childhood been familiar with his father's trades, carpentry and the work of a mill-wright, he followed these in his own township. He assisted many a farmer in the erection of his first frame house or cabin. Later he worked steadily for some time at erecting dwellings and mills in Dallas and Guthrie counties. Many mills in southern Iowa were built by him. Besides working at these trades, he engaged for many years in farming, and about the time of his marriage located on a place west of Richland, where he has since resided. Throughout his mature life he has been engaged more or less in milling. He purchased in 1900 a large grist-mill and later a grain elevator at Woolson.

Notes for LAURA ANN "ANN" WAYMAN:
Laura Ann Wayman was born August 8, 1837, in Melmore Co., Ohio. With her family, Ann (Laura was called by her middle name) emigrated to Iowa from Ohio by the covered wagon route in 1854. This family, which included ten children, left behind a nice new house when coming from Ohio to Iowa. In Ohio, they had a spring which ran through their cave and kept things cool. They also had a peach orchard and all kinds of fruit and nut trees. Ann's mother was almost an invalid while having her children, making Ann the chief cook and housekeeper to the whole family. She had to stay home from school at least once a week to wash, iron, cook, and bake and so lost interest in school books. In spite of this, she did learn to read, write, spell and do some arithmetic. She was converted in the M.E. Church at Richland when about 18 years of age, but joined the Baptist church at her father's request and remained a faithful member until it was discontinued.
After Ann and John Wade were married they went to housekeeping in a small frame house that Moses Warner had built in his yard for a cheese house. Here their first child, Alice, was born.
Ann's father gave the 1/2 acre for the Star School. He gave her and her sister Jane each 20 acres of land. Ann bought Jane's share and so she and John had 40 acres (1/2 acre of which the Star School was on) and they built a small house. Then came the Civil War, that desolated many homes, and Johnny enlisted in the 40th Iowa on August 12, 1862. On April 10, 1864, he was wounded at Prairie Anne, Arkansas. He died five days later near Camden, Arkansas. Ann sawed lumber, and pulled it to the yard with a rope around her waist where she built a lean-to summer kitchen. Their young son, Johnnie, was taken ill with dysentery and died. He is buried in the Halferty Cemetery, west 1/2 mile from Star School. Her oldest, Alice, was very ill also, and Ann cared for her day and night. After about 3 weeks of being ill, Alice begged for some cabbage that was cooking. Ann gave her a little juice, and from then on she improved fast and was soon well and strong. Once Ann had only $5.00 that was badly needed to feed the children. A preacher came and talked her out of the money, quoting about the widow's mite. Her son Lincoln never liked preachers after that. After the war was over, Ann married Daniel Davis, and they continued to reside in the same home, later moving to Woodburn, IA, in 1901. In 1918 she joined with the M.E. church, which was the church of her choice, at Woodburn and remained a member until her death. Her life was filled with the love of service to others with little thought of self. Ann passed away on February 24, 1925, in Clarke Co., IA.
Notes for JOHN J. WADE:
John's volunteer enlistment states he enlisted August 12, 1862, had gray eyes, auburn hair, dark complexion, 5'8" tall. The Inventory of Effects and Final Statement says he died at the Division Hospital on April 14, 1864 of wounds received in the battle at Prairie De'Anne, Arkansas. He had $6.75 in cash, one haversack, one knapsack and one canteen of government property.
State Historical Archives, Des Moines, IA
John was born in Ohio. He served in the Civil War, where he was wounded and died. He had one arm shattered and it had to be taken of at the shoulder joint. He had to ride all day in an ambulance in the heat of the summer sun before he could get cared for. He soon died (other family members added that gangrene had set in) and was buried in the south somewhere. No one learned where this burial site is. Ann could not go to visit the grave, as she was poor and had the children to care for.
from Velma Davis Weaklend's notes in the Keeney
40th Iowa Infantry, Company I, 1st Corporal enlisted Aug. 12. Wounded April 10, 1864 at Prairie d'Anne, Arkansas, died April 15, 1864 of wounds near Camden, Arkansas.
from "The History of Keokuk County, 1880."
Notes for DANIEL D. DAVIS:
Daniel moved with his parents to Iowa near Richland in 1846. He worked in a shoe shop, clerked in a store, and was also a supply teacher in the Richland schools. When the Civil War broke out he volunteered his services. He tried to join the infantry, but was rejected on account of being under weight and height. He volunteered for cavalry service and became a member of Co. D, 9th Iowa Cavalry on August 12, 1863. He enlisted for three years. On November 12, 1865, he was promoted for meritorious conduct to the rank of 1st Sergeant Co. D. May 2, 1866, he was again promoted to the rank of Lieutenant, in which capacity he had served 2 months previous to the close of the war. The commission was dated back to January 20, 1866. He received an honorable discharge from the service February 28, 1866. While in the war, he was sent out with a detail of men for foraging. They had to do that sometimes to get something to eat besides hard-tack which occasionally would go wormy and had to be toasted so the worms would crawl out before they ate it. He said some of the men would take all the poor Southerners had to eat but he would not do that and leave them to starve. They heard about a place where they could get some cured hams to eat, and the woman there was a fine southern lady. She asked Daniel if he could give her some coffee, and he gave her all he had.
The Corporal of his regiment had his wife with him part of the time and they had a little daughter named May. (Dan and Ann named their daughter May after her).
When he came back from the war he married Ann Wayman Wade, a war widow. They lived at her farm near Richland. Just south of the Star School house on this property was an old building that later was used as a stock shelter or feed room. Through the 1880's this sheltered an interesting bunch of Star pupils, the five sons and one daughter of Dan and Ann. Dan was the school director for many years. (In 1885 he farmed in the northeast quarter of the northeast quarter of Sec. 30, Richland Twp., Keokuk Co).
After the children were grown, he sold the farm near Richland to Roy Nordyke (son-in-law to Alice Wade Vastine - Ann's daughter by her first husband). They moved to the Pine Tree Stock farm near Woodburn, IA, in September of 1901. He formed a partnership with his sons - Charles, Fred and Isaac and engaged in farming and stock raising under the firm name of Daniel Davis and Sons. The partnership was dissolved after Isaac's death, and Daniel and his wife moved to Woodburn. He was born and raised a Quaker and held to that faith.

Notes for SOLOMON M. WAYMAN:
Solomon Wayman's Civil War record from Co. K, 7th Iowa Infantry: Solomon M. Wayman, fifth corporal, enlisted July 11, 1861; promoted third corporal, February 25, 1863; promoted fourth sergeant, May 1, 1864. He moved to Mercer Co., Missouri after the war, where he was Superintendent of schools and Superintendent of the Sunday School at the old log school house. He was in business with his brother, Henry, as Wayman Bros. They owned a large fruit farm called Grand River Nursery and Fruit Farm. The first car load of apples to ever leave Mercer County were shied by Solomon in 1885.
He gave an acre of land to the district and helped with the building and it was called the Wayman school house. He also taught school. This school burned in later years and a new frame building was built, which also burned and another small building replaced it. (It was razed in 1997). Ida died in 1926 in Winter Park, Florida, which was listed as their winter home.
From pension records: Solomon was born 4 miles southwest of Bloomville, Seneca Co., OH on February 5, 1841. He enlisted July 11, 1861 and reenlisted December 25, 1863 at Pulaski, TN. He was discharged on July 12, 1865 at Louisville, KY. He was transferred to the regimental staff, being commissioned as a sergeant major on October 23, 1864 at Savannah, GA. After the war, he lived near Richland, Keokuk Co., IA (either 4-1/2 or 8-1/2 miles west of Richland) until 1868, then at Princeton, Mercer Co., MO until November 12, 1883; then to Ponoma, Spalding Co., GA until his death. He married Ida C. Collins on March 19, 1872 at Princeton, MO at the M.E. Church by Rev. John Woodward. (Their marriage record was destroyed in a courthouse fire). They had one daughter, Clara. Solomon was a farmer, fruit grower and trucker. He was 5'11", 160 lbs, blue-gray eyes, dark brown hair, light complexion. His business in Georgia was "Wayman and Riegel - Ales and Vegetables; Terry Ales a Specialty. On Central Railway--38 miles south of Atlanta, Georgia. Phone, Griffin 1500-5". His son-in-law, Mark Riegel, was in business with him. Solomon died of Bright's disease on June 9, 1910. His pension was $12 a month. He applied for the pension on account of age, not on account of any articular disability. At the time of Ida's death, the pension was $30 a month and was being sent to Experiment, Spalding Co., GA. (This was where her daughter and son-in-law lived).
Child of SOLOMON WAYMAN and IDA COLLINS is:

Notes for STEPHEN WAYMAN:
Stephen Wayman was born in Ohio in 1843. His family moved to Iowa while he was a small boy. His mother died in Iowa and his father remarried. Stephen left home at age 18 and found work with the Pony Express Company, carrying cargoes from St. Joseph, MO to Denver, CO. During this time the Civil War broke out and he enlisted. He was with Co. D, 13th Iowa Infantry. This company was captured by the Rebels and ut in Andersonville Prison where he remained for seven months. They lived most of the time on a half cup of corn meal, ground cob and all, with a cup of water to wash it down. No water to wash in, no clothes to change in, only as they took them off the dead soldiers. He related many times how some of the soldiers rayed that somehow, some way they might have water. A spring of water broke out in the prison in answer to their prayers. Later this was called the Well of Providence. After seven months, he escaped, hiding in the daytime and traveling at night. His physical condition was terrible. When he regained his health, he and two brothers, Solomon and Henry, came to Mercer Co., MO and settled on farms.
On August 23, 1868, he was united in marriage to Mary Ann Overton. To this union eleven children were born,, six boys and five girls. The family lived on an 80-acre farm three miles north of Princeton. The children were all born in a log house. Later a frame house was built of native timber. When the family out-grew the farm and home, the 80 acres was sold. They heard that land was cheap in Arkansas, so the tri was made there in 3 covered wagons by way of eastern Kansas and what was then Indian Territory, Oklahoma; then into Arkansas by Fort Smith. They learned that a former Mercer County man lived at Chester, Arkansas, on a high mountain. They drove there over a very rough road. The land was very rocky, but soil beneath the rocks was excellent, they grew the finest flavored ales. They were there about 3 weeks when they chartered a car, loaded teams and wagons and shied to Richland, Iowa. Two of the boys went with the car to look after the horses, the rest went by train. There were several relatives in Richland, so they stayed until their belongings arrived by freight and then rented a house. They lived there until the latter art of February, 1902, when they moved back to Mercer County. They purchased a farm of 196 acres at $35.00/acre. The house was a large home that had been built by a doctor and was the first time they had plenty of room for the family.

Notes for HENRY R. WAYMAN:
In 1870 census, Mercer Co., MO - Morgan Twp., household 205/201. Brother, Solomon was with them. Henry was living in Princeton, Mercer Co., MO, in 1925.
Henry was owner and proprietor of Grand River Nursery and Fruit Farm, situated three miles north of Princeton, and Edinburgh Nursery, located at Edinburg, Grundy Co., Mo., four miles west of Trenton. He received a common-school education and began business for himself at the age of fifteen years by hiring to work on a farm at $12 per month. In the spring of 1867 he worked his passage across the plains to the "Rockies" on an ox-train, by driving one of the teams and walking all the way. He sent two years in Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico, teaming and mining. In 1869 he returned to Mercer County, and began work in his nursery, which he and his brother, S.M., established in 1868. The firm was known as Wayman Bros. In 1883 he bought a farm in Grundy County near Edinburgh, and established a nursery there. About 60,000 trees were kept growing in this nursery to supply the trade. In April, 1886, he bought his brother's interest in both land and nursery stock, and at least until 1888 was the sole owner and proprietor. He was very successful in his enterprise, and was well acquainted with the best methods of fruit growing and tree planting. The Grand River Nursery and Fruit Farm contained 346 acres and was the only one in the county. The stock in both nurseries comprised about 150,000 ale trees, from one to four years old; 1,500 ear trees, 1,000 each trees, 500 cherry trees, 1,000 grape vines, 400 plum trees and a proportionate amount of general nursery stock. The first car load of apples that ever left the county was shied by S.M. Wayman in 1885. In 1883 $1,000 worth of apples were sold from eight acres of orchard. In 1887 3,000 bushels of apples were shipped from these orchards.
Mr. & Mrs. Wayman were Seventh-day Baptists and in politics he was an Independent.
The Wayman School was located 2-1/2 miles north and 1/2 mile east of Princeton in section 9, township 65, range 65. The earliest record, April 6, 1880, lists Caleb Goins, H.R. Wayman and Thad George as directors. S.M. Wayman served as schoolteacher in 1881 and on the board in 1884. On December 12, 1882, the schoolhouse burned and a new structure was built for $500. In 1884 it was voted to open the schoolhouse for religious worship and literary society meetings. In 1933 the building again burned and was rebuilt. For some reason, about 1940, it was decided that it was best for all of the light to come into schoolhouses from the west. At this time the windows on the east were boarded u and more windows were ut in on the west; this made a total of seven windows on the west side. The Wayman School consolidated with Princeton soon after 1945 and the building was sold. It was razed in the summer of 1997.
