History of Hardin County, Iowa
Springfield, Ill: Union Publishing Company, 1883
Pleasant Township


Charles Boody was born in Hanover, Germany, January 12, 1835. His parents, Frederick Boody and Doretta (Fredericks) Boody, were natives of Hanover, and lived and died there. The father died in 1838, the mother in 1872. Mr. Boody, at the age of nineteen, came to this country, first stopping in Margan county, Missouri; from there he went successively to Clayton and Jones counties, Iowa, and then to Hardin county, settling in Pleasant township, where he now resides, on section 18. On October 27, 1860, he was married to Miss Sarah Rousseau, of Marshall county, Iowa, who was born March 17, 1837, she being a daughter of Reuben Rousseau and Sarah Bangus Rousseau, who were among the earliest settlers of Marshall county. There has been born to them seven children, all of whom are living -- Estella J., born August 17, 1861, now the wife of Jasper J. Parsons, of Hubbard; Robert V., born February 7, 1863; Otis S., and Orley S., (twins) born June 27, 1865; Reuben, born August 14, 1868; Frederick, born August 20, 1873; Cecil, born March 6, 1877. In politics Mr. Boody has been a Democrat. He has followed farming as his business, and has been eminently successful, having in his possession 235 acres, all under fence, and all well improved, except 20 acres of timber, the whole valued at $30 per acre.

Charles Boody

Another of the prosperous and skillful farmers of Pleasant township, Hardin county, is Charles Boody, who was born in Hanover, Germany, January 12, 1835, and, like others of his blood who have cast their lot with us, he has proven to be a most excellent citizen in every respect. He is the son of Frederick and Doretta (Fredericks) Boody, both natives of Hanover, Germany, where they spent their lives and where they died, the father passing away in 1838 and the mother in 1872, after reaching an advanced age. Their son Charles received a fairly good education in his native land and when nineteen years of age emigrated to the United States, locating in Morgan county, Missouri, later taking up his abode in Clayton and Jones county, Iowa, thence to Hardin county, settling in section 18, Pleasant township, where he still resides. On October 27, 1860, he married Sarah Rousseau, of Marshall county, Iowa, who was born March 17, 1837, the daughter of Reuben and Sarah (Baugus) Rousseau. Her parents were among the earliest settlers of that county and there they played a conspicuous part in its early development. Her father was born August 23, 1814, and died December 12, 1874, and the birth of her mother occurred on December 12, 1803, and her death on October 12, 1869. They became the parents of the following children: Mary, who was born in 1826 and died in September, 1905, married Mark Weaver, a carpenter, and they lived in Hartford City, Indiana; Robert, born April 4, 1828, died February 28, 1898, married Evelin Harmon, who is also now deceased; they lived in Marshall county, Iowa, and in Nebraska; Nancy, born May 12, 1831, married John Reed, a tailor of Ohio, and she died December 5, 1903; they lived in Marshall county, Iowa; Julia, born October 5, 1834, married John Hixson, of Marshalltown, Iowa; Sarah, wife of the subject, was born March 8, 1837; Sylphia, born September 9, 1840, married Ullry Patton, who is deceased, but she is living at Audubon, Iowa; Elenore, born December 8, 1842, died November 24, 1889; Emily C., born May 22, 1855, married Robert Roberts and they are living in Missouri.

Mrs. Boody's father came from North Carolina, where he spent his early life, coming to Indiana first, thence to Marshall county, Iowa, in 1850. He was the son of David and Nancy Rousseau, a prominent family of France. David Rousseau was a soldier in the war of 1812. Ten children constituted the family of Mr. and Mrs. David Rousseau.

To Mr. and Mrs. Charles Boody seven children have been born, two of whom are deceased: Estella J., born August 17, 1861, became a successful school teacher and taught sixty terms of school; Robert E., born February 7, 1863, died January 9, 1908; he married and one child, Bessie, was born to the union; Otis S. and Orley S. (twins), born January 27, 1865, the former now living at home; Reuben, born August 14, 1868, married Ellen Blair, daughter of James and Hester (Shelton) Blair; the father, a native of Ohio, was a pioneer in Hardin county, Iowa; Frederick, born August 20, 1873, married Abigail Brown, and they have one child, Gene R.; Tinnie, born March 6, 1877, married William Sheldon and they have five children.

Mr. Boody is a Democrat and a member of the Lutheran church. While he is always glad to note any progress made in his township and county along all lines, he does not find time to take any special part in public affairs. He has always been a farmer and his efforts in this direction have been crowned with success. His large farm is well improved and under a high state of cultivation. He handles an excellent grade of live stock, especially horses, and his cattle and hogs are of an excellent quality. He has a very pleasant and well kept home.

Longtime Allen County official
Ed Rousseau has died

Ed Rousseau

Ed Rousseau

      Ed Rousseau, a longtime Allen County office holder who spent the majority of his adult life in an elected office has died. He was 76.
      For years, Rousseau was considered the Allen County commissioner to be reckoned with.
      Rousseau, a Republican, played a major role in several of the county's biggest undertakings, including establishing the income tax and bringing GM to Fort Wayne and the renovation and expansion of Memorial Coliseum.
      When the county was debating the addition of an income tax, many were fiercely against it, but not County Councilman Rousseau. In front of a screaming mob, Rousseau decided he was going to give his side of the story.
      "Through the whole talk, they were yelling and shouting and throwing pieces of paper," he told The Journal Gazette when he retired as county commissioner in 2004. "Anybody that stood up to that situation either was nuts or had a good idea of what they stood for. I was armed and had all the facts. I would take on anybody."
      Working hard was Rousseau's lifelong mantra.
      "I've worked at getting it right, get all the facts," he said in 2004. "Then it's a matter of you've got to go around and convince people. You're not going to be loved by everybody, (but) you've got to be right."
      Politics was never Rousseau's ambition. His father owned a DeSoto-Plymouth dealership in Fort Wayne that Rousseau took over after graduating from Indiana University and serving in the Army in Germany during the Korean War. He ran the family business until the DeSoto line ended. He then went into real estate and was the first manager of Glenbrook Square.
      Politics came to him, however, in 1963 when Rousseau noticed a former classmate from North Side High School was running for Fort Wayne City Council. Rousseau remembered the classmate had been kicked out of another school and transferred to North Side, so he signed up to run against him.
      During his eight years on the council, he helped launch the Public Transportation Corp. and the Metropolitan Human Relations Commission, which investigates discrimination complaints.
      After losing his seat on city council, Rousseau ran for Allen County Council and won. It was during his 14 years on the county council that he pushed for the county option income tax and helped bring GM to Fort Wayne - a move that he considers his biggest accomplishment.
      "Harvester left and 26,000 people were unemployed in the county," he said in 2004. "When that was announced, everyone's heart started beating again. That essentially revived our economy."
      In 1988, Rousseau sought a new office - county commissioner.
      During his 16 years in the office, he found money for the Airport Expressway and worked to improve the Coliseum.
      When he retired from elected office, he was presented with the Sagamore of the Wabash, which was then Indiana's highest honor.
      "I ain't that good," Rousseau said during his retirement party in 2004. "I've been given credit for more than I've done."
      After he retired as commissioner, he weighed in on the city's Harrison Square project and served for a short time on the Convention and Tourism Authority. In the time since his retirement from elected office, Rousseau has also served on the Local Government Efficiency Study Committee and has served on the Plaza Parking Garage Board.
      Rousseau battled small-cell carcinoma, a type of incurable lung cancer, for years, but he didn't let it get in the way of being involved in civic life.
      He was also a sports fan. In high school, he played football. And as an adult, he sponsored a Fort Wayne Senior League slow-pitch softball team named Rousseau.
      Services for Rousseau are pending with D.O. McComb & Sons Funeral Home.

Henry Bolingbroke was the first king of the House of Lancaster, but he was still a Plantagenet. Both he and Richard II, whose throne he usurped, were grandsons of Edward III. Henry's father was John of Gaunt, who had been the premier lord in England after the death of Edward III in 1377. Henry had been born at Bolingbroke Castle and was often called Henry Bolingbroke. His mother (whom he scarcely knew, as she died of the Black Death when he was three) was Blanche, the daughter of Henry, duke of Lancaster, and great-great-grandaughter of Henry III. Bolingbroke was initially induced by his uncle, Thomas, duke of Gloucester, to oppose Richard's court favourites and he became one of the Lords Appellant, who effectively governed the country during the late 1380s. However he stepped down from this role a year later in 1389 and in subsequent years appeared as a supporter of the king. In 1390 Henry embarked on the first of his adventures, joining the Teutonic Knights on an expedition to Lithuania in the war over the Polish succession. Two years later Henry undertook a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, though his greater triumph was the grand journey he took through the courts of Europe on both the outward and return trips, where he was treated regally and evidently held in high esteem. At this time of his life Henry was still comparatively handsome, although he was rather short. He had inherited the Plantagenet red hair which, when he grew a beard, gave him a rather fiery appearance. In later life Henry developed a very severe form of eczema, to the extent that many believed he was suffering from leprosy, something he could have caught in his early travels. It is quite possible that the malady was stress-connected considering the difficult life Henry later led as king.
Henry was a good man for the king to have on his side, but Richard II did not seem to appreciate this. In 1398 Richard delighted in banishing Henry into exile on the grounds of past treasonable acts. The banishment was originally for ten years. In February 1399 Henry succeeded his father as Duke of Lancaster. King Richard chose to deprive Henry of his estates and extend the sentence to life. Henry invaded England in July and within six weeks Richard submitted to him. Henry succeeded in convincing Parliament of his eligibility to the throne (Edmund Mortimer, earl of March, had a prior claim, but he was only seven years old). Nevertheless it was an uneasy succession. For all that nearly everyone welcomed Henry over Richard, those who had supported Richard became concerned for their own lives and estates. Within months of his succession Henry found his life threatened in a rebellion organized by the earls of Kent, Salisbury and Huntingdon. Henry's retribution upon the earls and their supporters was swift and violent. It is likely that in its aftermath Henry also ordered the murder of the king who was starved to death, though the guilt of this continued to haunt Henry for the rest of his life.
Within a few months Henry faced a further revolt, this time in Wales, where Owain Glyn Dwr was declared prince in September 1400. Although the initial revolt was swiftly put down by Henry, Owain was not caught and several years of guerilla warfare followed. Support for Owain grew, not only amongst the Welsh, but amongst the English barons who had their own axes to grind. Key amongst these were the marcher lords, the Mortimers, who believed that their heir, Edmund, was the rightful king of England. This heir's uncle, also called Edmund, was won over to the Welsh cause and married Glyn Dwr's daughter. Owain also found support from Henry Percy, the son of the earl of Northumberland. Young Percy, better known as Hotspur, was a vain and intolerant individual who never believed he had received just recognition for his border successes against the Scots. Moreover his wife was Mortimer's sister. In 1403 Hotspur threw in his lot with Glyn Dwr and Mortimer. Henry reacted quickly, before Hotspur and Mortimer could combine forces, and confronted Hotspur at the battle of Shrewsbury on 21 July 1403. Hotspur was killed and his uncle, the earl of Worcester, was captured and executed. Hotspur's father, Henry, earl of Northumberland, was spared, but he continued to plot against the king. By 1405 it became evident that Mortimer and Percy were planning to overthrow Henry and share England between them. Both Thomas Mowbray, the Earl Marshal of England, and Richard Scrope, archbishop of York, became involved in the plot. The rebel army was defeated and this time Henry showed no mercy, though there was a great outcry when the archbishop was executed. Although the earl of Northumberland escaped to Scotland, he died in February 1408. Soon after Edmund Mortimer died during the siege of Harlech and the Welsh rebellion faded away.
At last by 1408 Henry felt reasonably safe. Two years earlier he had taken James I of Scotland captive when the young heir to the throne was being sent to France for safety. James remained at the court of the English king for the next seventeen years and, with him as hostage, England's relationship with Scotland remained stable. More over threats from France diminished as the French became riven by its own civil war. Unfortunately for Henry his physical constitution gave way and for several years, between 1406 and 1409, there were concerns for his life. In addition to the stress of keeping his throne amid widespread opposition, Henry had struggled to sustain the administration and finance of England. Henry placed considerable demands upon his treasury, and Parliament often argued against him. Henry remained moderate throughout, careful to avoid a confrontation that might cost him his throne. He relied increasingly on his council to help him run his government. However, it became evident that his illness was taking its toll and that Henry was finding it difficult to govern. By 1409 his son, Prince Henry, was made chancellor in place of the king's favoured Thomas Arundel, archbishop of Canterbury. Arundel returned in 1411 amidst a quarrel between the King and his council, in which it seems it had been proposed that Henry abdicate in favour of his son. Henry refused. Rumours abounded that Prince Henry was going to take the throne by force, but that never happened. He had little time to wait. Henry's strange wasting disease took his life in March 1413, two weeks before his forty-sixth birthday. The valiant knight of twenty years earlier had been worn out by the stress of government and ill health. Nevertheless he had established a united kingdom, and passed on the throne to his son, Henry V, who would become one of England's best-known kings.
Henry had desired that he be buried at Canterbury Cathedral rather than Westminster Abbey. There is a story that while a ship bore his coffin down the Thames a storm erupted and the king's body was washed overboard. The sailors later substituted another body. When Henry's tomb at Canterbury was opened in 1832, the simplicity of the remains suggested that the story may have been true.
Son: Humphrey Plantagenet Earl of Gloucester born 1391 Glouchester, England.

Humphrey Plantagenet & Eleanor Cobham — Humphrey Plantagenet Duke of Gloucester born 1390 Glouchester, England. Eleanor Cobham born Sterborough Castle,Kent,England. Daughter Antigone Plantagenet born 1428 Gouchester, England.
Duke Humphrey of Gloucester, b September 1390; d. February 23, 1446/47, Bury St. Edmunds; m. (1)Countess Jacqueline of Holland, 1422; m. (2)Eleanor De Cobham, Bef. 1431; d. July 7, 1452, Beaumaris Castle.
1391–1447, English nobleman; youngest son of Henry IV and Mary de Bohun. He was well educated and had a great interest in humanist scholarship. After the accession of his eldest brother as Henry V, Humphrey was created (1414) duke of Gloucester and earl of Cambridge. He served in Henry’s French campaigns and was wounded at the battle of Agincourt (1415). In 1420–21 he remained in England as regent during Henry’s absence. When Henry was succeeded by his infant son, Henry VI ,Gloucester claimed the regency. However, the 1422 Parliament disregarded this claim, which was based on Henry V’s will, and made Gloucester’s older brother, John of Lancaster, duke of Bedford , protector of the realm. Since Bedford was occupied in France, Gloucester was given the title of protector during his absences, but he had to share his authority with a council of magnates.
Gloucester’s ensuing struggle for power against his uncle, Henry Beaufort , forced Bedford to return from France several times to reconcile them. Gloucester married (c.1422) Jacqueline of Hainaut but abandoned (1425) her after their disastrous military expedition to Hainaut. A papal decree of 1428 invalidated that marriage and permitted him to marry his mistress, Eleanor Cobham, but he was severely criticized. Henry was crowned king of England in 1429 and king of France in 1431, and Beaufort’s ascendancy henceforth increased. After the death of Bedford in 1435, Gloucester became heir presumptive, but his influence with the young king waned as he advocated continuing the unsuccessful war in France. When Eleanor, Gloucester’s wife, was imprisoned in 1441 for sorcery against the king, Gloucester’s political importance was practically ended. In 1447, William de la Pole, 4th earl of Suffolk (see under Pole, family), who had succeeded Beaufort as the king’s chief adviser, had Gloucester arrested for treason. The duke fell sick and died in custody. He was known as “Good Duke Humphrey,” probably because of his patronage of scholars and men of letters. He corresponded with the leaders of the new Italian humanism, had translations made from the Greek classics, and collected a considerable library. His gift of books to Oxford Univ. formed the nucleus later restored and developed by Sir Thomas Bodley into the Bodleian Library. However, in matters of state he lacked determination, flitting from one project to another and following through with none. Unable to appear decisive, he thus antagonized all by his assertions of power.
Humphrey, the youngest son of King Henry IV, was created Duke of Gloucester by his brother King Henry V, who honoured him for his bravery at Agincourt. His ! imprudent marriage in 1422 to Jaqueline of Bavaria cast doubts on his loyalty but this was never believed at St Albans Abbey, Humphrey’s favourite place of worship. Appointed ‘Protector of the Kingdom by the King, he enforced his wife’s property claims abroad and then lost interest in her. The marriage was annulled and he married Eleanor Cobham, an enigmatic beauty with some of the dubious qualities of Lady Macbeth.
A fine scholar but a poor statesman, Humphrey quarrelled incessantly with Bishop Beaufort, a pillar of the Lancastrian establishment. His fruitless attempt to pre-vent the young King Henry VI from marrying Margaret of Anjou was seen by some to be merely selfish, as Humphrey was then heir to the throne. He rightly feared the cunning French princess, and this was not forgotten by the common people. But his power was diminished in 144 I by grave domestic troubles when his wife was ‘discovered to be engaging in black magic’ and imprisoned for life, and although Humphrey was not implicated, the scandal dealt a death blow to his political career. In 1447 he was summoned by the King to attend a parliament at Bury St Edmunds, where he suddenly died. His corpse was taken to St Albans to be laid in a vault installed by his friend Abbot John of Gloucester Cathedral Wheathampstead. There was much talk that his convenient death had been contrived, but no legal accusation was made.

Sir Henry Grey & Antigone Plantagenet — Sir Henry Grey Knt., Earl of Tancarville in Normandy, was born about 1418 (aged one and a half and more at his father's death).

Some research shows he married Liddea Warner — born 1605 Monmouthshire, England. Maybe he m. Lydia abt 1630 in Wales bur more likely she is a daughter. Both John and Liddea Warner are shown as arriving together and on the same head right claim in Virginia. Others are showing this was his daughter rather than his wife. They are buried along side each other in the same cemetery but it very likey could be father and daughter rather than father and wife.

          that in 1653 entered himself for Virginia in the Globe of London. 
          He obtained numerous patents of land - 50 acres in York county,

          2,000 acres in Westmorelant county, June 28, 1658.  Gloucester county
