||Eldora never married. She took care of her sister Lulilie. I do not know for sure, but have heard that Lulilie had health problems and may have been mentally handicapped. Eldora and Jennie both took care of her until she died and Eldora then moved with Jennie and her family to Maryville, Mo. and this is where she died. ||Coulter Eldora
Grandma was born in Iowa and when she was about two or three years old she moved with her parents and grandparents Daniel and Sirena Lewis to Cuming County Nebraska where her aunt Nellie and her family were living. A few years later she moved again with her parents and her grandfather Moses Coulter to Rock County, Nebraska. After her Grandpa Coulter died her parents and all of her brother's and sister's moved to Missouri and Grandma stayed with her grandparents Daniel and Sirena Lewis and her aunt Gladys in Orchard, Antelope Co., Nebraska.
After Grandma finished school she moved to Tilden and this is where she met George Brixius. They were married in Battle Creek in Madison Co., Nebraska. When they were married Grandpa's uncle and aunt George and Minnie Reiss were with them as witness to the marriage (as seen on their marriage license). After Grandpa Peter Brixius died they moved to the farm to help Grandpa's brother Harry with the farm. After Harry died they moved into Creston where they lived for several years. After a couple more moves in Nebraska they moved to the farm in Missouri. This is the only place that I knew as Grandpa and Grandma's House as I grew up.
I spent one summer with my grandparents and learned a lot about how people lived years ago. Grandma did her washing in a wash tub with a scrub board. They had a pump in the kitchen that looked like an out door pump. That was the only water in the house. The bathroom was out the back door (out house). Grandma had a big garden and the cellar was full of her canned goods. There phone was the old wind up kind and there were 8 to 10 other families on the same line. Grandma was an excellent cook. My favorite dish that she made was Apple Crisp. After Grandpa died Grandma lived alone on the farm in Iowa, were they moved in their later years. She continued working in her garden until she was in her early 90`s. After she fell and broke her hip she moved to aunt LaDonna's.

|Coulter Goodman Jr.
||From History of Allegheny County page 416 Goodman Y. Coulter, retired farmer ,post office Bridgeville,one of the oldest citizens of South Fayette township, was born in 1804,the third youngest son of eight children born to Moses and Margery(Fawcit)Coulter, and now the only survivor of the family. Moses Coulter settled in Fayette township in an early day, and was during active life among the most prominent of it`s citizens; was an extensive farmer, and erected a mill, which he successfully operated for many years. He was a religious man,and took a prominent part in founding of Bethany Church. He died in 1825 at the age of 63 years, owning at his death some four hundred acres of land, which was equally divided among his children. [note that this article is pertaining to Goodman`s father] Goodman Young Coulter was born and reared on a farm, and educated at a log school. His first business venture was the management of his father`s grist mill, which he successfully carried on for over twenty five years,also in the meantime farming. Mr. Coulter was first married in 1825 to Euphemia Middleswarth, daughter of Moses Middleswarth, an early pioneer of Allegheny County and to this union was born eight children. After Euphemia`s death, Goodman married Julia McKown and they had three children. ||Coulter Goodman Young

||Jane is living with Joseph and Hannah in 1850, and she moved to Ohio with them and is buried in the family burial lot in Knox Co., Ohio. ||Coulter Jane wife of John
||John died shortly after the family moved to Iowa. He was about 4 years of age. He is burried in the IOOF Cemetery in Brooklyn, Poweshiek Co.,Iowa. ||Coulter John
||John, Mary, and Moses were born in Chester Co., Pennsylvania. This information has no actual proof. I have come to this conclusion through research on the Faucett and Young families. With the information in the 1880 census we know that Joseph was born in Virginia and his parents were born in Pennsylvania. The Faucett family moved from Chester Co.,Pennsylvania to Fredrick Co., Virginia. There were several families that moved into Virginia at about the same time period. Moses Coulter married the grandaughter of Joseph Faucett and his sister Mary married the grandson of Goodman Young. All three families move from Pennsylvania to Virginia and then back to Allegheny Co., Pennsylvania. Moses son, Goodman Young Coulter and Joseph, whom I beleive to be the son of John Coulter, both married into the same family. We find John in Fayette Co., Pennsylvania in 1810 and in Allegheny Co. in 1820. We do not have a record of Joseph in 1830, but after his father died he may have been living with members of his mother's family. By 1840 he is married to Hannah Middlesworth. |
Now my second reason for this conclusion comes from the naming process. Moses eldest son was named John, which in the naming process should be the name of his father. We can not know for sure if John had a son named John before Joseph that did not live and we also do not know if Joseph was his father's name or Jane's father's name. In Joseph's family the eldest son was named after Hannah's father and their second son was named John.

Settled near its center, west of town and above the mouth of Miller`s Run. Had sons: John, Richard, and Goodman Y. Coulter. Daughter Jane married John McDowell. Moses Coulter settled in Fayette township in an early day,and was during active life among the most prominent of it`s citizens; was an extensive farmer, and erected a mill, which he successfully operated for many years. He was a religious man,and took a prominent part in founding of Bethany Church.The new congregation of 40 members chose The Reverend Alexander Cook to be their new pastor. In 1815 they erected a house of worship on their new property and established an adjacent cemetery. By 1820 the congregation had grown to 92 members with the governing body of Session consisting of Thomas Alexander Jr., Moses Coulter, George Harriet, John Hanna and John Nesbitt. On January 3, 1821 The Reverend William Jeffery replaced Reverend Cook as pastor. In 1838 the growing congregation replaced their building with a larger brick structure measuring 50 x 70 feet. The new building was constructed by Cornelius Borland at a cost of $3,000. |
Moses died in 1825 at the age of 63 years, owning at his death some four hundred acres of land, which was equally divided among his children. In the census records it show that they had four son`s and three daughter`s. In the 1800 census there is a girl 10/16 which would have meant Moses and Margery were married before 1790. This would account for the eighth child mentioned in the biography.

||Emma Vera Cross died from Polio three days before her wedding.|
From the Glenwood, Iowa Opinion 18 Sept.,1913:
The Emerson community was shocked Monday morning, September 15, to learn of the sudden death of Miss Emma Cross, daughter of George Cross. Miss Emma was never of robust health and died after a short illness of less than a week of Infantile Paralysis with diabetic complications. She was born on the home farm, near Emerson, June 12, 1886. The funeral was held at her home in Emerson, Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 16, being conducted by Rev. W.A. Morgan, her pastor for the last three years of her life. She was laid to rest beneath beautiful flowers, mute tokens of love from her many friends. Her Christian character and fidelity of friendship might well be emulated by all. She leaves to mourn her loss, a father, four sisters, the one who was soon to be her husband and a host of friends.

|| A Mercer county, Ohio, history states the following:|
"The American progenitor of the Durbin family came to this country with the colony brought over by Lord Baltimore in 1638, and settled on the spot where each of the ancestors was born and reared."
This may be so, but we could find no record of it. We did find early evidences of the family, however. In 1676, in Baltimore county, MD., Thomas Durbin bought 220 acres of land from Walter Dickerson and wife, and three years later bought 200 more acres from John Dickerson.
From later records, the Durbins appear to have been farmers and were located east of the present City of Baltimore. In the mid 1700's they spread into Harford county to the northeast and to Frederick, and finally Alleghany counties to the west. Then they spread into Greene, Fayette, and Cambira counties, Pennsylvania, before entering Knox county, Ohio. From Knox county, they scattered everywhere.
In 1699, Christopher Durbin turns up on the South Side of Patapsco Hundred. In 1702, John and Christopher Durbin were in the North Side Patapsco 100. In 1703, Christopher Durbin was taxable in South Side Gun Powder and John and William were on North Side Patapsco. In 1704, Christopher was in the same 100, John was South Side Back river, and William, with two slaves, was in the upper part, North Side Patapsco.
In 1705, John Durbin was north side Patapsco, and 1706, he was Back river. A Christopher Durbin estate was listed for Baltimore county in 1769. In 1730, John Durbin was listed among those on a levy allowance list in Baltimore county.
In 1748, on September 27, John Durbin Sr., made out his will, listing as children, John, Thomas, Daniel, William, an unborn child, daughter Averela, Hannah and Mary, and a son-in-law, James Princhard.
The Averela name is particularly interesting. It turns up twice in Harford county, MD., in 1776 , in The Susquehannah hundred, in Adams county in the 1850's. There is a Phabine Durbin listed beside Henry Durbin in Monroe township.
In 1752, we have the first evidence that the family is beginning to spread out in search of more family land. The will of a Samuel Durbin is probated in Frederick county, MD.
These early Durbins appear to have been Catholic, the faith of Lord Baltimore and his early settlers.
Then in 1756, from All Saints Parish, Fredrick county, MD., Thomas, John, Samuel and William petition Gov. Horatio Sharp.
In 1777, the Ann Durbin will is probated in Baltimore county, and in 1774, Daniel Durbin dies there.
Apparently the Durbins, shifted aroung during the war. None are listed for Baltimore county or Fredrick county in 1776, but two Averillas, and Delilah and the 34 year-old Daniel Durbin and his family show up in Harford county, MD. In 1778, John, Edward, Nicholas, William and Samuel took the patriot's oath.
Samuel Durbin served as a second lieutenant in one unit, John Durbin enlisted 6-Sep.1778 in the 4th regiment, and transferred by 15-Mar.1779 to Col. Moses Hazen's regiment. In 1783, he was listed as a prisoner of war from Capt. Carlyless' company of that regiment.
In 1790, the Durbin's had shifted to Harford and Frederick counties. Farming was probably passed in the area around Baltimore by then. Listed in Harford county, were Cassandra, with one male under 16, three females and five slaves; Daniel, with himself, two boys under 16, and four females, and one slave; and Sine, with three females.
At the same time in Frederick county there were eight Durbin families listed, none with slaves. Benjamin, with a son under 16, and eight females; Thomas, with three other males over 16, and three females; Thomas Bond Durbin, with another male over 16, two under sixteen, and four females; William, with one male besides himself over 16, four under, and 16 females; Mary, 2 males above 16, 1 under, and 3 females; Cornelius, 1,2; and John 1,2, and 5.
By 1800 they had all left Harford and Frederick, and were further west--ten werre listed in Alleghany county. Ben, Edward, Elijah, John, Nicholas, Samuel, and William were in Wills Town; David was at George's Creek, and John and John, Jr., were at upper Old Town.
In 1810, Benjamin, Edward, Stephen, and Thomas were in Richhill township, Greene county, Pa., Nicholas Sr., and Nicholas Jr., and Thomas were in Dunbar townshio, Fayette coutny, Pa., and Thomas B. Durbin was in Cambria county, Alleghany township.
In 1820, there were several Durbins living in Know county, Ohio, and they were still there in 1830. As stated, before, they reached Adams county, Indiana, by 1841, and were in numerous areas of Ohio by 1820, and 1830 census reports.
The Mercer county, Ohio history relates the following history concerning on of the Durbin branch: Basil Durbin was born in Maryland, near Baltimore June 22, 1812, and was a son of Daniel Durbin, who was born near Baltimore in 1778, Daniel's father Thomas, was a native of the same locality.
Daniel Durbin was reared on a farm, educated in Maryland, and was married in that state. his son Basil was the youngest of 13 children born to him.
Daniel located on the home farm in Maryland, removed thence to Pennsylvania in 1814 where he bought a farm and remained until 1819. Then selling his Pennsylvania farm, he emigrated to Knox county, Ohio, purchased a farm there, during the first part of his residency there not being a neughbor within 40 miles in either direction, north or west.
About 1830, he sold out and moved to Muskingham county, where he purchased 100 acres of land which was sold for taxes. This land he improved and lived upon for 20 years, and then lost it all, at least, but 16 acres, for which he sold for $100 an acre, a very good price then.
He lived in Muskingum county, the rest of his life. His first wife having died in 1814, he was married the second time, to Nancy Alkenrode, by whom he had three children, non of whom survived until 1896. He lived to be 88 (78?) years old, dying in 1856. Politically he was an old line whig; in religion he was a member of the Catholic church.
||August 15 1879, A Triple Tragedy. Three Young Men Meet Their Fate in a Watery Grave Wednesday morning six young men, living south of Emerson, with camping outfit, went to Red Oak, Montgomery Co.,Iowa, to work on the branch railroad. Their names were Chas. Hammock, Frank Durbin and four brothers,Thomas, Mark, Willard and Albert Campbell. They pitched their tent near the Nishna River and after supper the boys proposed going swimming. They went to the river south of the wagon road bridge and went into the water where it was very shallow, when suddenly,Chas, Mark, Thomas and Frank fell into a deep hole and not being able to swim, Chas. and Frank sank at once and did not come to the surface. Thomas sank but came to the surface and cried for help, but none could be given and the poor boy sank to rise no more. Willard could swim and swam in and saved his brother, Mark. Albert got ashore; he cannot tell how. The alarm was given and everything that could be done was done to save the boys. Two young men dove to the bottom of the hole and succeeded in bringing the bodies to the surface, which had been in the water about an hour. Thomas Campbell`s heart was beating it is said, when he was raised,but life was too far gone to save him. Late at night, word was brought to the grief stricken parents, that their boys, who but so recently had left home full of life, were dead. They were brought home Thursday morning and were buried in the Malvern Cemetery in the afternoon. A large procession followed the remains to the burial. The young men were each about 17 years of age, were kind hearted and obedient at home, and among their associates. The men will be sadly missed in the circles where they moved, and the grief striken parents and friends, have the sympathy of all who learn of the loss. `In the midst of life, we are in death.`(headstone in Malvern Cemetery: Charlie Hammack, son of C. & TA, d. 13 Aug 1879, 17y 5m 12d)headstone in Malvern Cemetery: Frank Durbin, son of J. & L. 16 Jun 1861- 13 Aug 1879) (headstone in Malvern Cemetery: Thomas E.
