1a. (contributed by Mr. Carman Upshaw, Dec. 2003):
John Upshaw was born in Webster Co., Missouri, 18 miles east of Springfield in October 1841, and was the second son born to Essel Upshaw. He assisted his father on their farm in early life, attended the schools of Webster County and, when twenty one years of age, branched out to make his own way in life. He married Miss Margaret Caldwell, daughter of James Caldwell, who came to Werbster Co., Missouri, from Illinois in an early day, and there passed the remainder of his days. John & Margaret (Caldwell) Upshaw settled on a farm in Webster County, where they remained until 1871, when he came to settle on Fox Creek, where he followed the arduous duties of a farmer. In 1890 he and his uncle built the roller mill at that place and he resided on a farm near the mill. Eight children were born to this marriage: William, John S., Henry, Elizabeth, Evaline, Martha, Frank and Edward. His wife died in 1874[sic: 1877] and his second union was with Miss Frances Woolton [sic], who has borne him eight children: Oliver, Sarah, Victoria, Ira ("Oda"), Sheldon ("Sheldy"), Earl ("Early"), Bentley ("Ben"), Tony, Orville and Max. In politics Mr. Upshaw is a stanch [sic] Republican, and as a citizen and neighbor stands deservedly high. (- "A Reminiscent History of the Ozark Region" (1894), pp. 757-58). (Editor note: although this states "eight" children were born to John and (second wife) Miss Frances Woolton [sic], TEN are listed; correction & documentation needed).

It was located 20 miles east of Ava and 15 miles south of Mountain Grove, ity was slightly east of the present town of Vanzant. Fox Creek runs mainly north to south in Wood and Bryant townships.)
