arrived at the time war was declared against the British and the Indians in the war of 1812. Both enlisted in the Kentucky Militia and fought at

 the seige of Ft. Meigs. Both brothers were discharged from the army at Burlington and eventually crossed the Ohio River and settled at

Rising Sun IN.

 

He was a farmer and in 1815 purchased 82.37 acres of land legally described as the NW 1/4 Sec 14 T4N R2W located in Washington

township, Dearborn Co IN and physically described as 1 1/4 miles north of Hartford (then known as Laughery) and across the ford in

Laughery Creek, on the west side of Cole Lane road.

 

In 1833 he sold the farm and bought land in Illinois with land grants issued to him for his military service. The land is believed to have been

located in Crane Creek Township, Mason Co IL. Upon his return to Indiana his eldest son George (10966) contracted a fever (probably

Typhoid) and died June 8 1833. Two months later Thomas developed the same fever and died. (360 years of Covingtons by Stephen Lisle

10976. Mother: Fulton, Mary, Mother Ref: 10985. Mar: 1 Apr 1843 at Dearborn Co IN to Hamilton, Mary 20718. Died: 26 Dec 1889 at

Madisonville, Hamilton Co OH aged 70. "S. F. Covington, now residing at Cincinnati, and John B. Covington, of Rising Sun, are the sons of

 Robert E. and Mary Covington, and the only children, except one son who died in early infancy.

 

Hon. Samuel F. Covington, who has won considerable distinction in Cincinnati, Ohio, is a native of Rising Sun. His early boyhood and

manhood were passed in the village, as were his maturer years. He received the benefit of the excellent schools which Rising Sun was

fortunate in having, then completed his education at Miami University, located in the town of Oxford, Ohio,

 

In early life he was employed as a clerk in some of the village stores, for a time was clerk on a steamboat, edited and published a weekly

newspaper styled the Rising Sun Blade, and subsequently the Madison Courier. As editor of the Blade he played a conspicuous part in

affecting the division of Dearborn County, and the formation of Ohio County. In the absence of the sheriff, as deputy, Mr. Covington was the

officer who organized the new county, and served as its first auditor.

 

He later represented the legislative district, composed of the counties of Switzerland and Ohio, in the State Legislature. He was admitted to

the bar at Rising Sun, in 1845. While a resident of that place, he was for a time engaged in the Ohio River trade, and was connected with

the Rising Sun Insurance Company. His name is identified with the growth and improvement of the city which he yet retains great interest in,

 and most kindly feeling for her citizens. To such an extent is this the case that he keeps up his identity with the place, and is probably better

posted in the history of Rising Sun and the surrounding country, than any man in it, as the reader of the foregoing general history may infer

from the copious quotations from his writings.

 

He married his wife in Rising Sun, who was a Miss Hamilton, a daughter of one of the merchants of the village. Of Mr. Covington's more

recent life, reference can be found in the chapter on journalism, in the history proper of this volume". (History of dearborn & Ohio Counties,

Indiana 1885).

 

He is buried in Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, Hamilton Co OH.(Last updated: 05/01/2002 15:01:46)

10986. Mother: Hamilton, Mary, Mother Ref: 20718. Died: 1 Jun 1865 at Dalton, Madison Co GA aged 20. "Lieut George B Covington,

adjutant of the Seventeenth Indiana Volunteers (Wilder's Mounted Infantry). was wounded in an engagement near Dallas, Ga., on the 24th of

May 1865. The regiment was forming in the line of battle, and Lieut. Covington was engaged in correcting the line when he was shot by a

rebel sharpshooter. The ball entered the left breast, passed through the left lobe of the lungs and lodged in the spinal column. The surgeon

pronounced the wound inevitably fatal, and the only hope was that he might possibly live to see home. Wheeler's rebel cavalry had made a

raid in the rear of our army, so that he could not be started home till the 30th. He had to be transported in an ambulance a distance of thirty

miles, to Kingston, where he was put on the cars for Chattanooga. While on the cars, between Dalton and Resaca, on the 1st of June, he

died.

 

The detail which had started home with him had, under instructions of Col. Wilder, in event of death on the way home, the body embalmed at

 Chattanooga and brought on to Nashville, where they were met by Lieut. Covington's parents. The body was brought to this city and interred

 on the 9th inst. George B. Covington was born in Rising Sun, March 28, 1845, so that he had but a short time since entered upon his

twentieth year.

 

He first entered service on July 4, 1861, and went to West Virginia with Col. (now General) Hascal, then commanding the Seventeenth. He

afterward returned home, but rejoined the regiment, then under Col. Wiler, September, 1862, and was with Col. Wilder at the several days

battle at Mumfordsville, and was, at the surrender of that place, made a prisoner. He was exchanged at the same time with Col. Wilder, in

November, and proceeded with him to the front, and was in various engagements proceeding the battle of Stone River.

 

The brigade commanded by Col. Wilder, being mounted, was assigned hazardous duties, and was engaged in a great many skirmishes,

some of which, in other times, would be set down as battles of considerable importance. It was Wilder's brigade that checked the rebel

advance at Chickamauga when Davis' and McCook's divisions fell back, and dealt such deadly shots into the rebel lines. The brigade being

 armed with Spencer rifles, six-shooters, felt themselves competent to cope with six rebel brigades, and they did even more at

Chickamauga. It was for gallant conduct at this battle that Col. Wilder had Lieut. Covington promoted to the adjutancy of the Seventeenth.

Lieut. Covington fell at his post and in the discharge of his duty. H made no complaint of his fate.

 

During the several days he was detained in starting home, after being wounded, the battles were continued, and he was within hearing the

roar of cannon and the rattle of musketry. He several times remarked that he wished he was able to be with his regiment. He met death

calmly and quietly, as he had often braved dangers. He felt that he was about to die in a holy cause and in the conscientious discharge of a

noble duty. His last words, sent through Col. Wilder to his friends at home, were 'Tell father and mother that I have tried to do my duty, and

that I die a Christian soldier.'

 

The large and solemn concourse that attended his funeral asserts the estimation in which he was held here, the place of his birth, and the

fondness with which his memory will be cherished by those who knew him." On the day of his funeral at Rising Sun, both the circuit court and

 the commissioner's court, both of which were in session, adjourned to attend the funeral, , and that, on motion of Judge Downey, suitable

testimonial to his character was placed upon the records of the circuit court, and a like testimonial, on motion of Henry Brown, one of the

commissioners, was placed upon the records of the commissioner's court. ("HISTORY OF DEARBORN AND OHIO COUNTIES, INDIANA-

 Apr 1972 at LaPorte Co IN to Laski, Helen Joan 11008. Died: 7 Dec 2003 at LaPorte Co IN aged 94. Was born at 194 Cedar Street,

Anamosa IA (is now a parking lot). Went to Anamosa High School 1 Sep 1923 and graduated on 30 May 1927. Later the same year he

moved in with brother Neil Yates and his wife in Freeport IA and his first job was with the Burgess Battery Co. He then worked at the

Freeport Electric Shop. He says he then "faked" his way to being an electrician first class and moved to Aurora IL and worked for the May

Electric Co.

 

His next move in 1930 was to Gary IN where he worked for the National Tube Co, but was laid off as the depression hit in 1932 so at age 23

 he returned to Anamosa IA where he did some odd electrical jobs and cut wood at the local timber yard. In 1933 he worked for Metcalf

Electric Co, before joining the Civilian Conservation Corps at their camp in Maquoketa IA on 2 Apr 1934 at a salary of $30 per month.. The

camp moved to Cascade IA on 12 Aug 1934 and it was here that he met Catharine Bisenius who was to later become his wife. On 17 Oct

1934 the camp moved to a new location at Sigourney IA.

 

The depression was lifting by 1935 so he decided to leave the U.S. government and he was discharged to take up work at Hall Mfg Co.

This was temporary and on his 26th birthday he began work for the local Sears store as a radio and refridgeration repair man travelling an

area of about 75 miles around Cedar Rapids.

 

They married at St Mary Church in Cascade IA with Msgr. Albers performing the ceremony. The reception was at her parents home and

they took a short honeymoon trip to Canada via Detroit for one week. They returned to Cedar Rapids.

 

Sears transferred him to the buying offices in Chicago on 24 Jun 1940 and they lived with her sister and her husband Harry and Hilda

Rupkey prior to moving into an apartment in Oak Park IL. By 1948 they had 3 children and needed a bigger home so bought a new house

under construction in Brookfield. They moved in 15 Nov 1948.

 

He finally retired from Sears after 35 and a half years on 31 Jan 1972. His second marriage took place at the Sacred Heart Church in

LaPorte IN. He sold the home in Brookfield and also his 2nd wife's home in Laporte IN using the funds to buy a new model home in Cougar

Drive in 1972. In 1973 he purchased an unimproved property at Bella Vista AR on a large lake retirement area.

 

He and Helen travelled extensively from 1974 to 1985 all over the U.S. actively seeking information about his early Covington relations.

Even after Helen's death in 1985 he continued to travel and wintered in Florida until 1992. He had suffered a stroke on 19 Mar 1984 which

by 92 was affecting his equilibrium and this ruled out long driving. Walking with a cane was satisfactory until 20 Aug 1994 when the use of a

walker was made necessary.

 

His work on the Covington History has been catalogued in a number of volumes: Vol 1 - Runion, Drake, Ross, Howell and Yates. Vol 2 - The

 Covington Families. Vol 3 - The Lisle Covington Family. Vol 4 - Copies of ol diaries including The Rising Sun Covingtons by John

Covington Williams, Sauel F Covington Memoirs 1858, John G Covington 1859 (an ox team overland trip from Havana IL to Carson City
