    Notes 
    • Living in Cuivre Township, Pike Co, Missouri on 13 aug 1850 (census)
    • WINSLOW PARKER TOLLE (Jonathan Jr5; Jonathan4; Roger3; Tobias2; Roger1)

      Winslow Parker Tolle, son of Henrietta (Harn) and Jonathan Tolle Jr, was born between 1800-1810, probably in Mason County, Kentucky. It is commonly believed that he was the son of Henrietta Harn but Jonathan's first wife Elizabeth Henderson has not been eliminated either, mainly because we do not know the exact birthdate of Winslow. The family moved to Bourbon County, Kentucky, and that is where Winslow Parker married Elizabeth Bradley on 20 Oct 1829. His father signed the bond with him, both making their mark. Elizabeth's parents are still undetermined, but there is a possiblity that her father was either Elisha or Layton Bradley. Soon after this marriage, they showed up on the 1830 census of Pike County, Missouri. They had four children, and then before 1840 Elizabeth died. Winslow was on the 1840 census of Pike County, Missouri as one male with 4 male children. On 12 Nov 1840, in Pike County, he was married again to Malinda Hughes. They were married by J.H. Hughes, Minister. His name appeared as Towl on this record. Malinda was the daughter of Mary (?) amd John Hughes. Winslow was on of six bondsman for the estate of his father-in-law, John Hughes in 1846. He moved to Pike County, Illinois sometime before 1850 where he was on the census. The two Pike Counties are opposite each other, separated by the Mississippi River, which is the state line at that point. Malinda and Winslow had six more children between 1851-1854. She died before 1854. Winslow married once again, this time on 6 Jun 1857 to Sarah J. Hall in Pike County, Missouri. The service was performed by Benjamin F. Jacobs JP, and on this record his name is spelled Toll. Two more children were added to his family. Winslow hasn't been located on the 1860 or 1870 census as yet, but the minor children of his second marriage seemed to have been scattered after the death of Melinda. Some were found in Warren County, Illinois in the homes of other people. After no trace for many years, Winslow turned up on the 1880 census of Livingston County, Missouri. He was listed as age 88 (should have been about 71) in the home of his son William, suffering from Apoplexy. He died on 11 Oct 1881 at Jamesport, in Daviess County, Missouri. He is buried in the Gee's Cemetery, in the Southwest part of Grundy County, Missouri. His tombstone is adorned with a Masonic emblem. When this compiler visited that cemetery in the Summer of 1987, I found many broken stones, and the one belonging to Winslow Parker Tolle was broken off, and lying nearly buried under the grass. Some biographical notes give his occupation as a farmer, buyer and seller of livestock, and saw mill worker. He was a member of the Christian Church. On 27 Dec 1898, his widow Sarah J. filed for a widow's pension for his service in the Indian Wars. It said that he served in Capt. Douglas's Missouri Militia and Capt. Loncoln's 4th Illinois Volunteers, but there are no dates of service shown on this record. The claim says that he died 3 May 1882. There are many conflicts in the records regarding the birth and death dates for Winslow, and his age at death. Some branches of his descendats go also by the TOLE and TOLL spellings.

      The children of Elizabeth (Bradley) and Winslow Parker Tolle were:

      JONATHAN LAYTON TOLLE (TOLL)7 born 18 Sep 1830; married 1st Lydia Matilda Barney; 2nd Sarah Elmira Applegate.
      JAMES HENRY TOLLE (TOLE)7 (twin) born 12 Oct 1834; married Harriet Richards.
      JOHN HENRY TOLLE7 (twin) born 12 Oct 1834; he may have been the one who married Mary Peters; was said to have gone to California.
      MILTON TOLLE7 born ca 1836; one record says he died as a young man; no further info.
      The children of Malinda (Hughes) and Winslow Parker Tolle were:

      WILLIAM RILEY TOLLE (TOLL)7 born 20 Nov 1841; married Mary Ellen Birdsall.
      ELIZABETH A. TOLLE7 born ca 1844; married William Strother.
      HENRIETTA TOLLE7 born 9 Sep 1849; married Stephen W. Mattison.
      LUKE M. TOLLE (TOLE)7 born 2 Dec 1850; married Mary Jane Dungan.
      MARY ELLEN TOLLE7 born 13 Oct 1851; married William Marion Hooten.
      OLIVE TOLLE7 her mother died soon after her birth, and she was raised by another family; no further info.
      The children of Sarah J. (Hall) and Winslow Parker Tolle were:

      LYDIA J. TOLLE7 born ca 1858; unmarried at age 51; no data after 1910.
      PARKER W. TOLLE7 born ca 1859; unmarried at age 50; no data after 1910. [4]
    • He was reared in Kentucky, and there educated, but as a young man moved to Missouri, where he became a pioneer farmer and a buyer and seller of livestock, occupations in which he continued to be engaged throughout the remainder of his life, his death occurring in Pike County on his farm in 1880.

      W P TOLE was a man of substance, who occupied a prominent place in his community and had the respect of his community as a citizen and a man. He was a devout member of the Christian Church. Mr. Tole was married first to Miss Bradley, and they became the parents of the following children: Jonathan, who went to California in 1860 and who probably spent the rest of his life there, as nothing more was heard from him; James H., the father of John H.; John, twin of James H., who also went to California in 1860 and of whom all track was lost; Milton, who died as a young man; and Elizabeth, of whom trace has been lost by the family.

      W P Tole was married second to Miss Hughes, and they had four children: William, postmaster at Arrol, Missouri, who enlisted in a Missouri regiment during the Civil war because the Illinois quota was filled, and fought throughout the four years of that struggle, being twice wounded in the right arm; and Luke, Olive and another daughter, of whom all trace has been lost.

      W P TOLE was marred a third time to Miss Hall, and they had two children: Parker, who resides near Mexico, Missouri, on a farm; and a daughter Lydea of whom nothing is known.
