    Notes 
    • Family Group Sheet Sources:
      Compiled from 1850 federal census in White Co. Tennessee listing 12 children all born in White Co. Tennessee.
      Information submitted to the Bozarth Beacon by Randall S. Walker from Littleton, Co.
      Taney Co. Missouri federal census for 1860 listing Nathan (child #13) born in White Co. Tn.
      Also listing Melissa (child #14) being born in Taney Co. child of Elizabeth (Johnson) Bozarth.

      Power of Attorney signed February 16, 1856; Deed Book, Vol. F., October 1855 - September 1857, page 123-124. Found in Tennessee Library and Archives, Nashville, Tennessee, microfilm roll #82. This is signed by Joseph and Elizabeth (Burton) Bozarth and listing her maiden name, proving she was still alive in 1856.

      Joseph remarried before August 9, 1860. He died before July 1870. He is no longer on the census for Taney (now Douglas) Co. Missouri; however, his wife is listed along with daughter Melissa and two grandchildren.

      Cause of death unknown; however, the Civil War was fought in their back yard (literally) and all of the Bozarth males disappear from the 1870 census whether by death or moving to another area is unknown. We know that Nathan moved to Dallas Co. Mo. In 1870 he would have been about 19 years of age. He later moved to Johnson Co. Arkansas. William and family, along with sister Nancy Caroline and family also moved to Johnson Co. Ark. prior to 1870. No information on John, Samuel C., Joseph (Sr. or Jr.) or son Levi. They were all in Taney/Douglas Co. in 1860. One note written by descendants of Lucy Alley (Samuel C. second wife) says he died in the Civil War.
