JAY COUNTY, INDIANA

THE UNUSUAL DIARY OF PLENNA BICKEL

On Sept. 21. 1936 the Portland Commercial-Review and Portland Daily Sun published identical special editions marking the 100th anniversary of the organization of Jay County. Indiana.
One article. "Unusual Dairy of Plenna Bickel. Deceased. Is Published." consists almost entirely of names and dates. The editor wrote this introduction:

Among the personal possessions of Plenna Bickel. who died recently at the home of his daughter. Mrs. Daisy Knoll at College Corner is an unusual diary. More than one-third of a century ago. Mr. Bickel began recording the dates when pioneer citizens of Jay county and prominent persons passed To their eternal rest.

While it's not a complete record of all of the pioneer citizens of the county it shows a great amount of work on the pan of the aged man. Verifications show that the dales are remarkable for their accuracy. Many residents of the county will recognize the names of loved relatives in the list and it is for their benefit that the names arc published.

As Mr. Bickel saw his boyhood friends and comrades join the ranks of the departed he probably thought of the words of the poet when he said:
       
        Sustained and soothed by an Unfaltering Trust.
        Approach thy grave like one who wraps the
        Drapery of his couch about him
        And lies down to pleasant dreams.

Bickel died at age 88 on 30 January 1927 more than nine years before the newspapers published his diary. Containing 500 names. The diary actually spans 42W years — from March 1881 28 when Bickel noted the death of Daniel Smith to 29 November 1923. the date of death of George McCartney. By the 1920s Bickel was in his eighties. He recorded only two deaths in 1920 only five in 1921 and only McCartney's in 1923.

Two dates were recorded long after the fact. In late 1890 or early 1891 Bickel jotted down the date of death of his uncle George Bickel (13 April 1877). Between 10 and 11 December 1893 he recorded the date of death of his grandfather Thomas Bickel (13 August 1844).

Bickel also recorded dates of death for his parents; his wife Nancy (Harkins) Winegardner Bickel; her parents; his uncles John Jacob and George Bickel and his aunts Marian (Bickel) Money Polly (Clear) Bickel and Margaret (Imel) Tharp Bickel. Curiously he recorded 23 January 1894 as the date of death of his father Adam Bickel. Jay County death records and Adam Bickel's tombstone in Antioch Cemetery show that he actually died 5 January 1894.

Plenna Bickel's grandparents Thomas Bickel (1793-1844) and his wife Barbara (Shaffer) Bickel came from Preble County Ohio between 1833 and 1835 to what then was Randolph County but in 1836 became Jay County. The Jay County tract book shows that George Bickel son of Thomas and uncle of Plenna bought 40 acres in Pike Township on 21 December 1835. Thomas Bickel entered 40-acre tracts there on 14 and 18 July 1836. Sons John and Jacob (James) also entered 40-acres tracts there John on 4 December 1837 and James on 18 August 1838.

The Bickels are German. Thomas Bickel's ancestors came to Virginia in the early 18th century and migrated to Center County Pa. About 1804 Bickel moved to Ohio. While there he was a soldier in the War of 1812. As noted Bickel died in Jay County in 1844 and is buried in the Hawkins Cemetery the oldest burial ground in Jay County. In 1860 Barbara Bickel then 69 was living in Pike Township with her son-in-law and daughter George and Anna (Bickel) Isenhart. Later she lived in Marshall or St. Joseph County Ind. with another daughter Sarah Jane Eley and died there.

Papers filed in Thomas Bickel's estate on 21 August 1845 (see pages 216 and 309 Probate Order Book A Clerk's Office) give the family name as Bickel a common variant and show that he was survived his widow and 12 children — George (1804-1877) Barbara 1806 Adam (1807-1894) Lucy Elizabeth (Betsey) Clear (1808) John (1813-1893) James (1816-1888) Katharine (Katie) Green (1817) Marian Money (1819-1905) Thomas (1821) Sarah Jane (Sally) (1823) Anna (1825) and Henry Jackson (1827). One source mentions a 13th child Rachel possibly the Bickels' oldest but nothing is known about her.

In 1845 all 12 living children resided in Jay County. Half remained there including George who married 1) Nancy Glassford and 2) Margaret (Imel) Tharp; Adam who married Mary Jane maiden name unknown; John who married Polly Clear; James who married 1) Melinda Brooks and 2) Miriam Evans; Katharine who married William Green; and Marian Bickel who married David Money. Sarah Jane Bickel who married 1) Adam Loy and 2)_ Eley later resided in Marshall or St. Joseph County. Anna Bickel who married 1) William Isenhart and 2)__Hary later resided in southwestern Illinois. Henry J. Bickel later resided in Starke County Ind. Nothing else is known about Barbara Bickel Lucy Elizabeth (Bickel) Clear and Thomas Bickel.

Born in Preble County Ohio on 23 December 1839 Plenna Bickel was one of Adam and Mary Jane Bickel's nine children. Like his father and grandfather he was a Pike Township farmer. In Jay County on 7 April 1870 he married Nancy (Harkins) Winegardner daughter of his family's neighbors Daniel and Elizabeth Harkins. By her first husband John Winegardner Nancy Harkins had twins John (1858-1931) and Elizabeth who were reared by their stepfather. Plenna and Nancy Bickel had four children together — Seymour H. and Pavy Bickel Clara Bickel later Mrs. George Maxwell and Daisy Bickel later Mrs. Daniel Knoll.

Nancy Bickel died in Jay County on July 2 1917. Plenna Bickel died 10 years later at the home of Mrs. Knoll. The Bickels are buried in Antioch Cemetery southeast of Portland.

The newspaper's use of the word "comrades" hints that Bickel served in the military service. His obituary says he enlisted on 23 December 1863 in Company C 25th  25th Indiana Volunteer Infantry Regiment. However Dr. M. W. Montgomery's 1864 Jay County history shows "Pliny Bickle" as a recruit in Company E 89th Indiana Infantry. The Indiana State Archives' grave registration card file shows him serving in Company I 20th Indiana Infantry. Bickel probably transferred to new units as his old ones were mustered out at war's end. He was discharged on 15 January 1866 at Vicksburg Miss. well after the war ended.

In his diary Bickel notes dates of death for more than 50 Civil War soldiers from Jay County. Many served in units raised in the Portland area - the 39th Indiana Infantry (8th Indiana Cavalry); Company B 34th Indiana Infantry; Company F 75th Indiana Infantry; Company E 89th Indiana Infantry; Company H 100th Indiana Infantry; the 119th Indiana Infantry (7th Indiana Cavalry) and Company B 11th Indiana Cavalry. His diary also contains a sprinkling of names from the 19th 36th 69th and 130th Indiana Infantry regiments and the 40th Ohio Infantry Regiment which also drew recruits from the Portland area.

Most soldiers whose names Bickel recorded in his diary were privates. A few were officers or noncommissioned officers. However he noted the deaths of these local notables:

John Peter Cleaver Shanks (1826-1901)—Born 7 June 1826 Martinsburg Va. (now W.Va.). Grandson of a Revolutionary War soldier son of a War of 1812 veteran. Came with parents to Jay County 1840. Admitted to bar. 1850. Helped found first Portland newspaper (Portland Journal) 1851. Elected to Indiana House of Representatives 1854; U.S. House 1860. While member of Congress fought as volunteer Battle of Bull Run. Declined President Lincoln's offer of appointment as brigadier general. Raised 119th Indiana Infantry (7th Indiana Cavalry). Appointed to 7th Cavalry regimental staff. Breveted as brigadier general 1864; major general 1865. Later served U.S. House 1866-1875; Indiana House 1878- 79. Practiced law Portland. Married I) Deborah Wilson 2) Huldah Hearn and 3) Magdalene Oswalt. Died 22 February 1901 Portland.

Louis J. Bruner (1838-1912)—Born 6 October 1838 Monroe County Ind. one of six sons of a Methodist minister. Briefly in Company E 66th Indiana Infantry before serving three years in Company H 5th Indiana Cavalry. Won Congressional Medal of Honor for volunteering 2 December 1863 at Walkers Ford Tenn. to go through enemy lines to warn a battalion of Union soldiers of their imminent danger of capture. His act of heroism allowed the battalion to withdraw to safety. Returned to Indiana after the war and taught. Came to Portland in 1883. In late 1884 having been admitted to the bar began representing former soldiers in pressing pension and other veterans' benefit claims. Awarded Medal of Honor 33 years after the fact 9 March 1896. Died Jan. 28 1912. (Bickel incorrectly gives his first name as Lewis.)

One diary entry is not a death. On 2 July 1881 Bickel laconically recorded that "Garfield was shot." That is the date on which an assassin shot James A. Garfield (1831-1881) 20 th president of the United States. Garfield lived about 11 more weeks dying 19September 1891.

Bickel correctly recorded dates of death for Union General Winfield Scott Hancock (1824-1886) the 1880 Democratic nominee for president who died 9 February 1886; Benjamin Harrison (1833-1901) 23rd President of the United States who died 13 March 1901; Thomas A. Hendricks former U.S. Congressman and Senator former Governor of Indiana and former Vice President of the United States who died 25 November 1885; Confederate General Joseph (Fighting Joe) Wheeler who died 25 January 1906; temperance crusader Carry (Carrie in the diary) Nation who died 9 June 1911 and famed preacher Henry Ward Beecher who died 8 March 1887.

The date of death of William McKinley (1843-1901) 25th president appears in the newspaper with no month an obvious typographical error. (The correct date is 14 September 1901.)

Bickel made some errors in his notations. He wrote down July 24 1908 as the date of death of Stephen Grover Cleveland 22nd and 24th president. The accepted date is September 24 1908. Bickel has U.S. Senator John Worth Kern Of Indiana the Democratic nominee for president in 1908 dying 10 August 1917. He died 17 August 1917. Bickel noted 16 February 1904. as the date of death for Senator Mark Hanna of Ohio but he died a day earlier. Bickel has General William T. Sherman dying 14 February 1891. He died 14 February
1891. These all could be typographical errors. However Bickel probably recorded the day obituaries appeared in his local newspaper and that meant some of his dates were a day or two late.

In an overall sense Bickel's diary is accurate.

The dairy's dates provide a starting point for genealogical research for each individual. The following alphabetized list contains all 500 names in Bickel's dairy. Months were abbreviated. The only other change is the order of the names.
