(XIII).Census and Tax Records for William Eckart
(I). Letter by Roy F. Eckart: William Eckart
From Roy F. Eckart of Albuquerque, New Mexico (~1963): I have Grandfather (William) Eckart’s Bible, printed in 1828 in German; on the front fly leaf there is his name and the date “1828” in ink that is still clear and legible. This makes the Bible 135 years old. There are several entries on the back fly leaf, but being that it is in German script, I cannot read them. However, I can make out the dates and place (Louisville, Kentucky). His name was William (no middle initial given) Eckart. The first entry is dated 12 September 1852, which was my father’s birth date. Then, there are dates 1854 – 1856, which could have been the dates of other children; the last date written is August 19, 1893.
Grandfather Eckart came from Colmar, France, which is in the Alsace - Loraine Province; this Province, incidentally, changed hands between France and Germany several times; at the time he left, it was French. He moved because he was about to be called again to serve in the army. I learned recently that he left a daughter there with her grandparents and brought his son William F. (12 years old – error, should be 6 – JRM) to this country. I know nothing of the history of this daughter, nor how long his wife had been dead.
In Louisville, Kentucky, he met and married Julia Ann Warsaw, a girl from Indiana that was born in Ohio. In 1854, the family took a boat down the Ohio River, crossed the Mississippi, then went up the Missouri to Westport (now Kansas City). It was there that he bought a wagon and team of oxen and went to Osage County. Later they lived in or near Lawrence. I have heard my father tell of Quantrel’s men coming to their house and demanding horses; this was during the time of Quantrel’s raid on Lawrence.
About 1860, the family purchased a farm a few miles from Paola and did some farming. By trade, Grandfather was a comb maker, making combs from the horns of buffalo and cattle. Some of the tools he used were still on my father’s farm just a few years ago. He would walk to Kansas City about fifty miles away and sell the combs. After returning from one of these jaunts, he developed pneumonia, and died at the age of 63. He and Grandmother are buried in the Paola Cemetery. I saw the tombstone this spring, but cannot remember the dates on it.
(II). Clues to the Old World Origins of William Eckart
This is what is known:
From Ed Eckart (15 December 2006): The father ..."fought under Napoleon in France, 18 June 1815 at Waterloo."
From a letter of Art W. Ellison to William P. Eckart, March 1952: “Your grandfather Uncle Bill (William Frederick) Eckart was a Frenchman from the North of France. I don’t know as he ever told you – his (grand) parents were killed in the Bethelmon Massacre in France. Look up the history.” ...His son, William F. Eckart, "came from Colmar (Alsace) France." Colmar is confirmed in William Eckart's 1865 Kansas State Census information, his military papers, and in his Bible record (see below).
From DeMerle Eckart: The 1843 French birth certificate for "William Frederic Eckart" (1843 – 1905) stated his father William Eckart and mother Anne Marie Zebinnen were both the age 28 and lived in Colmar, France.
"The Alsace Emigration Book," by Cornelia Schrader-Muggenthaler states Guillaume (William) Eckart's birth place was Mulhouse (Mulhausen). Mulhouse, Alsace, France can be found in the National Geographic Atlas of the World. Both Colmar and Mulhouse are close to each other.
(III). 1849 Emigration of William Eckart to America
The Emigration date for Guillaume Eckart with children (not named) is 6 June 1849. His birth date is listed 1815 with the birthplace Mulhouse (Mulhausen), and his occupation is listed as a comb maker. (From “The Alsace Emigration Book,” by Cornelia Schrader-Muggenthaler.
“I understand William Eckart left France because they had to give their land to the Germans or leave. William hated the Germans so because of it and it even rubbed off on Mother.” (From a letter of Mrs. E. A. McFarland, 1 August 1963)
(IV). Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky ~1850 to 1857?
Recorded on the Jefferson County Marriage Register:
William Eckart's bible names his early born children in Louisville:
From tax books of Jefferson County, Kentucky as found through 1855; descriptions were hard to decipher, abbreviated, and not understood.

1855 Eastern District: Wm Eakhardt, 25-165, Willad Shelly Can Land(?); value of land 12, town lots 300; 1 male over 21; 0 children 6-18 years old.
(V). Shawnee County (Now Osage County) Kansas 1857 to 1860's
Boundaries between counties were later changed
In 1865, William and Julia sold their western 80 acres to his son William F. Eckart.
On 16 July 1867, William and Julia A. Eckart of Lawrence, Douglas County sold off their remaining acres. His son W. F. Eckart switched 70 of his acres in 1869, but by 6 April 1870 had sold off the rest. Family records indicate William and Julia were no longer living on these lands by about 1862 and had moved on to the Lawrence, Kansas area.
1903 Letter by William F. Eckart about his father William Eckart in Early Kansas From “Early Days in Kansas,” Volume 3, Green Historical Series, July 1913.
Continuing with Shawnee/Osage County:
The1859 Kansas State Census for Burlingame Township in Shawnee County lists "William Eckart."
From Ed Eckart: "The homestead was about two miles west of U.S. 75 Highway, just on the north side of U.S. 56 Highway. ...110 Mile Creek cuts across there and the land is about 0.5 miles east of the town of Scranton. The map shows the Santa Fe Trail about ½ mile south."
(VI). Lawrence, Douglas County, Kansas ~1862 to 1869
About 1862, William Eckart and his family moved. As Roy F. Eckart related: "Later (the Eckarts) lived in or near Lawrence. I have heard my father tell of Quantrel’s men coming to their house and demanding horses; this was during the time of Quantrel’s raid on Lawrence." This ride is retold below.
On 24 August 1865, William Eckart purchased lot #43 on the northwest corner of 8th Street and New York Street for $50. Lot 43 and 44 were sold 12 May 1869 for $1000 which suggests it included a house. (Deed Book J - page 404 and L – page 383, per Ed Eckart).
The 1865 Kansas Census for Lawrence, Douglas County listed William Eckart, age 49, comb maker, and born in Colmar France. Included in the household were: Julia Eckart 37, house wife, born Ohio; William Eckart, Jr. 21, farmer born France; Mary E. Dixon 18, France; John Eckart 12, school, Kentucky; Catherine Eckart 11, school, Kentucky; Franklin Eckart 7, school, Kansas; Emma Eckart 4, Kansas; Edward Eckart 2, Kansas. (courtesy of Ed Eckart, 15 December 2006)
Notice the name of Mary E. Dixon - born in France was included in the household. Ed Eckart speculates that this Mary might be the daughter of William Eckart who returned to France.
In 1866, The Lawrence City Directory listed the Eckart family living on the northwest corner of Henry and New York streets. William's occupation was a comb marker.
(VIII). Story of Lucie Schultz
From Dorothy Cole Prentiss, 20 September 1974: “Roy told me his first wife was Marie Zebinnen of France and she had two children, a daughter and a son William Frederick Eckart, born 19 August 1843 in Vesoul, France. I do not know whether the daughter was born first or not – but he left his daughter in France with her grand-parents – whether with the Zebinnens or the Eckarts, I don’t know. But it is apparent that the daughter married a man by the name of Schultz because my Uncle Harry Cole told me that she had a daughter Lucie Schultz who visited them for a while when the Coles lived on Myrtle Avenue in Kansas. Her uncle William Eckart had brought her over to America, but I don’t know when. Uncle Harry said in one of his letters that Lucie went on to Chicago and was a governess in some prominent families – one being the Potter Palmer family. She didn’t like her German name and used the name Suchet. Uncle Harry said they lost contact with her after that and my Uncle Carroll said she was last heard of in Bar Harbor, Maine, about July 1918.”
From Mrs E.A. (Hope) McFarland in August 1, 1963: “The sister remaining (in Europe) was why Grandmother Sue Ellison Eckart sent money at Grandfathers death to bring the sister back. A niece came instead, Lucie Schultz. I went through all the things and find 3 cards from her, with the last in 1918. We lost track of her. She gave her name the French pronunciation during World War I and I remember we tried to pronounce it as ‘Shu say,’ but we worried when she disappeared and our mail came back.”
Hope continues in another letter: She “came over here from France around 1908. I have a photo of her taken in Colmar and another in Chicago in 1909 and a snap shot of her as a French Governess in Canada. We lost track of her during World War I about 1918.”
From Treva Eckart Decker, July 1, 1963: “Sorry, I would like to refute that about Lucy Schultz. Not too important, but I though you might be interested in knowing that Lucy lived with us most of the time in Tescott, which was about a year. She left very hastily when your mother and I woke up with chickenpox one morning. She was very afraid she would contract it and it’s a wonder she didn’t. She hurriedly packed her trunk and suitcases and took the morning train out of Tescott (we had trains then) and went to Chicago where she took a job as a governess for a French family.”
“As a young girl, I was quite interested in her, so I was always asking Grandma Eckart about her. She finally died in Chicago of what we do not know, or whether she was buried there. She finally changed the spelling of her name which was German to the English spelling because of World War I and she didn’t want to be known as a German. We, Bernice and I, were glad when she left, I remember. She took care of us when Mother and Dad both worked in the store. And when we did something she didn’t like she was very impulsive and would quickly slap us on the face. That really angered us. One time I remember as a kid, I was rummaging around in the sewing-machine drawer and ran a crochet hook in my hand. She took me by the other hand and practically ran to the doctor’s office. She was a very good musician and could sing and play and had a wonderful education. She use to go to the Lutheran Minister and talk German to him since he was German and he, in turn, taught her the English language. When she came over she could write it, but couldn’t speak it.”
(IX). On Spelling Variations of Eckart
On the spelling of Eckart: The name Eckart can also be spelled Eckhart, for an Eckhart family moved to Lincoln Center, Kansas, and were found to be cousins of W. F. Eckart (From Bernice Eckart Murphy). It remains to be determined if the spelling of Eckert is an also an old world variation.
(X). Who Were the Parents of Julia Ann __?
Ed Eckart sums up the surname problem as remembered in family records: "Uncle John Eckart said Julia Ann's maiden name was Gross. Lill B. said it was Rusk and Bernice and Bessie Bryan thought it might be Warsaw. (courtesy of Ed Eckart, 15 December 2006)
In records for their
son, William F. Eckart, stated Julia was born in Ohio and lived in Indiana
before her marriage. This record also
stated her maiden name was "Warsaw."
Their 1880 Census stated Julia was born in Ohio and her father was Scottish. So far, the Warsaw surname doesn't link to any possible parent.
Julia's marriage record spelled the surname as "Warsock." Warsock does not appear to be a surname, which is a problem. Both this and the family record do seem to agree on the 1st four letters of Wars___. Review of the Jefferson County, Kentucky tax record for 1850 and 1851 does not show anyone who might match these spellings. The closest was a Jane Warnick in the Middle District. Did Julia's mother remarry and that is why the back-trail is so hard to find?
(XI). Children of William Eckart and Marie Zebinnen
(I). William Frederick Eckart was born 19 August 1843.* French birth certificate spells name as Guillaume Frederic Eckart and states parents lived in Colmar and family records state he was born in Vesoul or Versone, Alsace-Loraine, France. William died 18 July 1905 and was buried in Tescott, Ottawa County, Kansas. He married Sue Ellison at Paola, Miami County, Kansas, on 1 October 1871. See next generation
(II). Daughter, possibly Marie Eckart, is not well understood and was originally reported that she never came to America. Ed Eckart thinks her name to be Maria Louise Eckart and she did come to America briefly (per telephone, November 2006). The 1865 Census does show a Mary E. Dixon, age 18 (born ~1847) living in the household of William and Julia Eckart. Dixon may well be this daughter. If so, the Dixon surname suggests a brief marriage. Returning to Europe, the daughter married a Schultz and had a daughter Lucie Schultz.
