This is the Tabor Cemetery, Located just past the Falls Mills Dam on right



[With the help of Nancy Gale (Tabor) Smothers, Gerald Lee "Jerry" Tabor, Sandra Jane (Dye) Johnson , Phyllis Ann (Tabor) Tabor, Carol June (Shrader) Lowe, Robert Duane "Danny" Sadler, James Allen 'Jimmy' Thomason, W. Reese Barnhill]

A Brief History followed by the Index of Those in the Cemetery

Location:. On Route # 643, going from Falls Mills, VA.toward Mudfork, VA., at the far end of the Falls Mills Dam you will come to a steep curve. The cemetery is not visible from Route # 643 and there is no place to park. However, it is less than 1/2 mile to the right , at this deep curve, to a brick home with a narrow lane behind it which leads to the cemetery. Per Nancy Tabor Smothers: The cemetery is before you get to the old Henry & Shirley Hill homeplace.

A big white Tabor home sits on the right side of Route #643 before you get to this big curve. Per Gerald Lee "Jerry" Tabor, s/o *George Edward "Hub" Tabor, 1901-1976 & Annie Marie (Harris) Tabor, 1909-1989 : This home was the home of Henry Shephard "Doc" Tabor, s/o Henry J. Tabor, 1861-1930 & Mary Arminta (Wagner) Tabor, 1872-1956.

* George Edward "Hub" Tabor, also a s/o Henry J. Tabor & Mary Arminta (Wagner) Tabor Most of our kin in this cemetery is of the James Tabor, 1786-1859 & *Henrietta (Blackwell) Tabor line. James Tabor was the s/o William Tabor, b. abt. 1739-d. abt. 1807 & his second wife, Nelly-unknown surname,b. abt 1739- d. abt 1815 to 1820.

* Henriette Blackwell's father, Robert Blackwell, served in the Rev. War (This data found in "Virginia Appalachian Notes" Vol. 12, 1988-submitted by Lorraine Butta).


a. POSSIBLE CHILD Nancy Elizabeth Tabor, b. abt 1811, d. 1871. Married Moses J. Belcher, 1811-1871. Nancy Tabor had Albert/Elbert A. Tabor before this marriage. Albert A. Tabor was killed in battle in the Civil War at Wayne Co VA/WV. His widow, Matilda Payne then married William Scott. She was the second wife of William Scott


The Belcher men were Moses & Roberth H. Becher. Husband and son of Nancy Tabor Belcher.

The story involves the death of two sons of William J. & Elizabeth ( Crockett) Tabor of Tazewell Co., VA., (This Elizabeth Crockett was the daughter of Tillman Crockett and *Arminta Nicewander -Waggnor- Crockett). William J. Tabor was the s/o Francis Tabor & Mary "Molly/Polly" Shrader. * Arminta Nicewander first married Elias Waggoner and upon his death married Tillman Crockett.

In "Tazewell Co Death Register 1872-1896" By Wilson & Wilson Pg. 81 and 82 it lists the deaths of two grandsons of Francis & Mary Tabor:

Tabor, John d. 27 Oct 1887 age 20 yrs 8 mos b. Mudfork, Taz. Co VA d. same place as birth. Cause of death: Shot for trespassing. Son of Wm J. & Elizabeth Tabor

*Tabor, Geo d. 18 Nov 1887 age 21 yrs b. Mudfork, Taz. Co VA d. same place as birth Cause of death: Shot for trespassing. Son of Wm J. & Elizabeth Tabor

*Robert Lee Tabor was know as Lee. He was listed as Lee in the 1870 Tazewell Co., VA ., Census. He was listed in the Tazewell CO., VA., Death Register as Geo. Tabor for some reason!

The deaths were reported by their neighbor and kinsman, R. H. Belcher (This was Robert H.Belcher the s/o Nancy Tabor & Moses Belcher. Robert H. Belcher was one of the men who shot the Tabor brothers)

I did not know why they were shot. Then I found the answer in "Virginia Appalachian Notes" Vol. 17 1993, Abstracts of "Clinch Valley News" at the local Mormon Library in Tucson, Arizona

28 Oct 1887 A horrible shooting scrape, in which one man was killed instantly and another probably fatally wounded, occurred at Falls Mills, this county, last week. It appears that they had gone to the residence of one Belcher, to demand the release of a mule which Belcher had in his possession belonging to them. The mule had been annoying Belcher some time by being in his fields. After repeatedly warning the Tabors (the men to whom the mule belonged) that he would do so he put the mule in his stable. On them coming after it Belcher and his son went out to meet them and soon became engaged in a quarrel, the old man Belcher returned to the house and procured two shot guns one of which he handed to his son the other he set against a post. Presently something so enraged Lee Tabor, the one killed, that he drew his shotgun to shoot. Belcher jumped behind the post, at the same time getting up his gun, which he put in a few inches of Tabors head, and fired, young Belcher shooting the other Tabor at the same time. They came to town Saturday and employed council to defend them, and were bailed out to the sum of $4000.00 each.

27 January 1888 The trial of Belcher for the killing of the Tabors before the Justices' Court was prolonged for nearly two weeks. Belcher was sent on to the grand jury.

4 May 1888 The jury trying the case of Commonwealth against Robert and Lendo Belcher for the killing of John and Lee Tabor were out about two minutes when they brought in a verdict of not guilty.

Robert H. Belcher was married to Amelia E. Compton on 10 Feb 1864 in Tazewell Co., VA (Vol. II, "Annals of Tazewell County, Virginia" by John N. Harmon, Sr., p. 29). Robert was the son of Moses Belcher and Nancy Tabor. Nancy Tabor is a little confusing. She is either the daughter of James Tabor (1786-1859) and Henrietta Blackwell (1790-?) or a Charles Tabor and Ellen Green.

This is according to Tazewell County Heritage Vol. 1, 1995, by the Tazewell Co Historical Society p. 62.

b. William Bartley Tabor, 1816-1844, married Charity H. Runion/Runyon, 1816-1890. This couple moved to Grundy Co., MO., (about 1862) and that is where they both died. Charity H. Runyon , d/o Joseph Runyon & Nancy Jacobs. Charity H. Runyon was the sister of Nancy Moore Runyon who married James Harrison Tabor, the brother of William Bartley Tabor-both sons of James Tabor & Henrietta Blackwell

Two children of William Bartley Tabor & Charity H. Runion, Seletha Ann (Tabor) Marrs & Rev. Joseph Harvey Tabor traveled in a wagon train from Grundy Co., MO., to Custer Co., NE.

If you have access to a computer do youself a favor and go to:

There is an account of this wagon train by Sandra Sanchez.

Sandra Sanchez's work is delightful. (She shows James Tabor, 1786-1859, as the s/o William Tabor & Francis (I have seen name as Nancy) Fraley.

There is a great debate with Tabor researchers over the biological children of William Tabor & Nelly -as opposed to William Tabor & Nancy/Francis Fraley.

I KNOW OF NO PERSON WHO HAS LEGAL DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE THIS MATTER. (I tend to lean toward William & Nelly as the parents. I think the William Tabor who married Nancy Fraley, d/o Frederick *Froehlig/Froelich/Fraley, II., & Chloe-unknown surname, was the s/o our William Tabor and his first wife, Elizabeth-unknown surname). * The name became Americanized as did most of our ancestor's names.

c. Sarah "Sallie" Tabor, b. abt 188. She married Bartley Belcher in 1836.

d. James Harrison Tabor, 1821-1891. Married Nancy Moore Runyon, d/o Joseph Runyon & Nancy Jacobs. Nancy Moore Runyon the sister of Chariey H. Runyon who married William Bartley Tabor-the brother of James Harrison Tabor. William Bartley & James Harrison Tabor were the sons of James Tabor & Henrietta Blackwell.

e. Stephen Paris Tabor, 1825-1888. Married Eleanor "Ellen" Havens, 1832-1901, d/o Howard Havens & Dicy King.

f. Martha L. Tabor. b. abt 1827. Married William G. Prince, s/o Benjamin Prince & Nancy Belcher (probably kin to the Tabors). William G. Prince's sister, Nancy Prince, married Isaac Patton Tabor, the brother of Martha L. Tabor.

g. Andrew Jackson Tabor, b. abt 1829 d. 7 Aug 1864 during the Civil War. He was killed in battle at Moorefield. Married Juliana Belcher, b. abt 1831 d after 1900, possible daughter of Obediah Belcher & Martha Prince See # 39 for the census records.

Basil Moab & Sarah Tabor *(married John Gilbert) moved to Carter Co., KY. Amy Tabor married James Jackson and moved to Russell Co., VA.

* A story regarding John & Sarah Tabor Gilbert's early days in KY.: The story was written by Anna Roe Kilgallin the great granddaughter of John & Sarah (Tabor) Gilbert, regarding John and Sarah's move to Ky., after 1815 from Tazewell Co., VA., when they moved into a cabin in KY.

" The first night it caught fire and burned forcing them to live in a cave for the duration of the Summer, until a new cabin could be built. The couple managed to rescue their belongings. They hung quilts over the opening of the cave. In their garden plot they had planted sweet potatoes and other vegetables. One night their little dog spent the night barking as it kept behind the quilts. The next morning the garden was full of bear tracks. This article was found, by Larry Gray, in "Shakin & Diggin" printed Dec 1983 page 11. A book published in Vanceburg, KY. 41179. The Historical Society in that region.

"Annals of Tazewell County Virginia" Vol II, Page 589 A *J. W. Baker, and Henry Peck were two veterans said to have "weathered the storms and dodged Yankee bullets, slept on the ground, ate hard tack and parched corn as they followed Lee and Jackson through the never-to-be-forgotten days of 1861-1865."

* This J. W. Baker later lived in Boissevain according to the book.

All the children of Samuel Henry Shrader & Ocie Lee Tabor are direct descendants of both David & Henry Shrader, Sr. Samuel Henry Shrader was a direct descendant of David "Dave" Shrader, Sr., and Ocie Lee Tabor was a direct descendant of the brother of David "Dave" Shrader, Sr., Herny Shrader, Sr.

*Chloe Dillion the d/o Samuel Dillion & Polly Rhindhart who were married 29 Apr 1818 in Tazewell Co., VA., Samuel Dillion was the most likely the s/o Samuel Dillion & Chloe Farley.

Regarding David Shrader, Sr., & Jr.,:

David "Dave" Shrader, Sr., would live to be 104 years of age. In a work, in the 1955-1962's, by the late Leftridge W. "Lef" Shrader who lived in Boissevain, Tazewell, VA., it is stated that on his 100th birthday David "Dave" Shrader, Sr., made a churn. This was related to "Lef" by Charles Shrader of Matoaka, WV., a half brother of Rufus Jackson Shrader.

David Shrader, Jr., Ruth (LaRue) Lambert stated in an article contributed to the "Mercer County History" that David Shrader, Jr., was a soldier in the Civil War. She said she had been told that he was wounded in the "Battle of Princeton" (WV). Ruth related that Chloe (Dillion) Shrader heard of his condition and went to Princeton to bring him home. Chloe was tending his needs when David decided to get out of bed; his wound opened and out came wadding from the shot.

Ocie Lee Tabor, was the d/o Hugh Edward Tabor, 1862-1914 & *Margaret Rebecca Sluss (sister of Corrilda Alice Sluss), 1865-1944, Hugh Edward Tabor was the s/o James Russell Tabor, 1834-1920 & Martha Jane Havens, (sister of Eleanor Havens-the wife of Stephen Paris Tabor) 1830-1910., James Russell Tabor the s/o Richard Adam Tabor , b. abt. 1806 d. aft 1860 & Mildred Permelia "Milly" Shrader (d/o Hnery Shrader, Sr., & Louisa Kennedy), b. abt. 1815 d. 1891, Richard Adam Tabor was the s/o William Tabor b. 1739 d. bef 1810 & Nelly -unknown surname, b. abt 1739 d aft 1813 (also see # 21 for Tabor's in 1810 Montgomery Co., VA)

* Not to be taken for Elizabeth "Lizzie" Coleman.

Peter Schlosser, Sr. was our immigrant ancestor from Germany. He arrived in America in 1732 on the ship "Dragon" with his brother Leonard Schlosser. They settled in the Lebanon area of PA., before moving to MD. Peter married Anna Maria Weschenbach and he is buried in Sharpsburg, Washington Co., MD. The inscription on his tombstone is carved in German, and translated it reads:

"Here rests in God, Peter Schlosser. He was born 20 January 1710 and died 8 January 1790. His age was 80 years, 11 months, and 3 days. When you awaken the dead on that day, so reach out your hand to my grave".

This Henry Sluss Family is of the Sluss Family that was massacred at Ceres, VA., (Now Bland Co.) around the 1788-1790's.

There are several versions of this tragic event. There seems to be a conflict between the date of the occurrence in the writings.

This is a typed copy of the letters James Sluss, 1832-1999,wrote.

The first letter is part of one James Sluss had written to his brother John.

"1893---- I visited the site and area where the Sluss family was massacred. The date not definitely known but is believed to be Aug 2nd, 1769 at Sharon Springs, about two miles from Ceres, Va. I saw the graves of the two Sluss men that were buried at Sharon Luthern Church Cemetery. The church is 140 years old-also saw the graves of Mary Sluss Crigger, the baby that was left alive in the trundle bed at the time of the massacre, at Kimberly Church at Black Lick. Also the grave of Polly Ann Sluss Sharitz at St. Johns Luthern Church at Wytheville, VA ( Elizabeth Sluss Groseclose- at Sharon Luthern Church, Ceres, VA)

Susan Sluss, presumably by the first marriage, was buried near Kingsport, TN.

It seems Jared's first children were married and away from home at the time of the massacre, which accounted for the small number of the family that were killed. The mother and 3 of the children were killed "(part of letter missing).

The following letter written, by James Sluss, 1832-1911, to the Rev. C. W. Cassell, Rural Retreat, VA., 04 Sept 1897.

"My father, Henry Sluss, was out in the fields with his father, Jared Sluss, when the Indians came to the house. The Indians had been there and killed the mother and 2 of his sisters and one brother. They missed getting the baby Mary who lived and married Michael Crigger who died at Black Lick at the age of 103 years. My father, Henry Sluss (?) died here at Mudfork at the age of 90 and was buried at Tip Top, Va. Uncle Frederick moved to Missouri, Uncle David lived in Scott County, Va. John was killed accidentally from a falling tree. Our Aunt Polly Ann Sluss married a Shartiz. Susan married W. M. Ketron and was buried near Kingsport, Tenn. Our Grandmother was named Anna. Grandfather Jared Sluss and my Grandmother were direct descendants from Germany, when they arrived at Sharon Springs where my father Henry was born. From Sharon Springs they moved to Wythe County, Va. The statements above are all I know. Signed- James Sluss (Mud Fork) Tip Top, Va. The maiden name of my mother was Fletcher".

My own information: The last sentence of this letter has everyone scrambling. The marriage record shows that Henry Sluss married Betsey Coleman. Betsey is a name of endearment for Elizabeth. It shows that William Shannon performed this marriage. "Annals of Tazewell Co VA 1800-1922 Vol I" By Harman-page 90.


Editors note; This story was copied from a magazine "The Ladies Home Journal" owned by Mrs. Kelly Foglesong and submitted by Mrs. Charlie Atwell.

The weather was warm and mild for the season of the year. The time was the last of April,1788. (My note: this date is not the same in every report) The place was in what is now Ceres, Bland County, VA. The locality was very thinly settled. The Schluss and Spangler families were near neighbors, for they lived a little less than a mile apart. The Spangler family consisted of old Mr. and Mrs. Spangler, Mrs. Spangler's two sons John and Gideon Huddle, (by her first husband). Young Frederick Copenhaver, son of a neighbor some miles away, was at the Spangle's on this eventful morning: and the three young men began the necessary but somewhat frolicsome work of shearing the sheep.

The Schluss family consisted of John Schluss (apparently also known as Jared-Karen EAGLE Moman) the father and Mary his wife, two daughters Jemima and Katie, aged 18 and 20 years, and just blossoming into beautiful womanhood; Peter, youth of 16; David, a lame boy about seven and Mary a child about six months.

Rather early in the morning Mr. Schluss and his son Peter (apparently Peter was the same as the Henry Sluss our James Sluss was writing about in his 1897 letter to Rev C.W. Cassell. Meaning his name was probably Peter Henry Sluss-Karen EAGLE Moman) harnessed up the horses and started off to the new ground a mile distant to plough. As they passed through a thick woods skirting near their farm their horses snorted and (shield) considerably at some large (Rootheads) near the path along which they rode. Peter said, "There must be some bears around here". A sharp lookout for a few minutes revealed no bears. However the father and son rode on to their work. How near to death the father and son were while peering around for bears, none will ever know. Of course, as was customary in those days, they had their guns with them, and this fact probably saved their lives. But they rode away from death, yet innocently leaving their family to fate behind them.

About 10 o'clock the attention of the shearers was arrested by the violent barking of the farm dogs and the women up at Schluss': One of the young men said, "Boys, that's Indians killing the Schluss. Run for the guns; Let's go!" Hands off, and the half shorn sheep, the last of the flock unsheared, was freed and permitted to go, the whole Summer long half shorn in memory of the sad interruption.

Before the young men could come near the house the massacre was over and the murderers gone.

Three stalwart Indians had entered the house. The three women taken by surprise and unarmed, fought for a moment as best they could. Mrs. Schluss' head was cleaved by one of the tomahawks just inside the door. At this point the girls tried to escape by flight, but Katie was found tomahawked and scalped in the rear of the house; and Jamima, who had snatched up David, the lame boy, and tried to escape with him, reached a fence at the woods, a little distance in the rear of the house, and tossed the lame boy over.

In the house was a singular case of preservation. Little Mary the infant was lying in her cradle asleep when the Indians rushed in upon the family, and so hurried were they that they did not notice the child in the cradle, and she escaped. She lived as a useful, honored Christian woman. She married Michael Greger and was the mother of a large family of worthy daughters, and died at the advanced age of 96. It was the privilege of the writer to converse with Mrs. Creger frequently, ad he is acquainted with three of the daughters, Mrs. Doak, Mrs. Goodman, and Mrs. Moore, who lives in Wythe County, VA.

But to return to the sad scene just a moment to relate a tender, soul freezing sight. When the young men from Spanglers' arrived at the house, they found murdered ones substantially as before described. But poor Jemima, the rosy-checked girl with the long flowing hair, was not found for some little time. A search was made for the hope of finding her alive hidden. She was betrothed to one of the young Huddles-Gideon. In his anxiety and anguish he called aloud and searched everywhere; and starting to the woods, he was the first to come upon--to find his dear, intended wife.

There was a pursuit of the Indians by these men and others by the aid of dogs, but the Indians beat the dogs back and fired the mountains in their area and so made good their escape to the Valley of the Ohio.

The graves of the three murdered women may till be seen just inside the little graveyard at Sharon Church. Nothing but smooth round stones lie at the head of the graves. (My note: there are other reports that question this fact)

A closer look at the old "Rootheads", where the horses were scared revealed the fact that the Indians were at the time lying there concealed in the piles of leaves. They were doubtless members of the Shawnees, who on the 14th of July, months before, had murdered the Moore family who lived in Abbs Valley, about 30 mile South of the Schluss family.

NOTE: The spring is located on the farm of B. M. Crabtree and the house stood on the other side of the line fence of the farm of Mrs. Elbert Crabtree. Each year the meadow blooms with Easter flowers. This article was submitted by Dixie Scott

36. ALEXANDER TABOR....................3-11-1897...........7-31-1912 Son of James Howard Tabor & Mary Jane Brooks, James Howard Tabor the s/o Stephen Paris Tabor & Eleanor "Ellen" Havens. (See # 7 for the Tabor and Havens lineage)

(Data from Sandra Jane Dye Johnson-a direct descendant of James Tabor & Henrietta Blackwell) Alexander Tabor was setting up cans for his brother-in-law, William Bowling, husband of Eleanor R. (Tabor) Bowling. As William was getting ready to fire the gun his daughter, Virgie, ran into the line of fire. William yanked the gun to protect her and the bullet hit Alexander in the chest. He lived for about nine months but eventually died of the gunshot wound.

I do not find Alexander in the 1900 Tazewell Co., VA., Census-Jeffersonville Dist., with this family. Apparently the enumerator had a date wrong in the census and also Alexander might have been Charles Alexander Tabor then he would be the "Charley" in this census and the birth date is incorrect on the census. If Alexander Tabor was born 11 March 1897 (as indicated on the tombstone) he would have been 3 years and 3 months old when the 1900 Census was read. The indication was made by the "? " next to the name before Charley that the film was hard to read. The middle initial "H" was read as an "M" and the birth year of James H. Tabor was wrong.

James Taber enumerated between the families of Rich'd Runion and John Havens in the opposite direction. JAMES TABOR 00100-00100 I male 16-26 1 female 16-26

NOW! There was two James Taber's in 1820 Tazewell Co., VA census? The children do not match the James Tabor I have as the s/o William & Nellie-unless they made a mistake in the enumeration.


JAMES TABER 1 male 26-45 1 female 0-10, 1 16-26


JAMES TABER 2 males 0-10, 1 male 26-45 3 females 0-10, 1 16-26

The information I have on James & Henrietta Tabor would indicate that in 1820 they had three children--but without a verification of two of those births it may really be just the son William Bartley Tabor that was b. In 1816. I am still searching for more information on this riddle. I can't find another James Tabor that would fit into this window of time.

There is also the possibility that they put an incorrect name for one of the James Tabors.


JAMES TABER (This fits his family group as far as I can tell for 1830) 2 males 0-5, 2 males 5-10, 1 male 10-15,1 male 40-50 1 female 0-5, 1 female 5-10, 1 female 15-20, 1 female 30-40

Regarding Henrietta Blackwell , first wife of James Tabor & Mela, second wife of James Tabor: A child of the James & Henrietta Tabor family listed his mother as Mela on a marriage certificate. I have found several marriage records in Mercer Co., VA/WV., and Tazewell Co., VA., that listed a second wife of their father as the mother on a marriage record. Who knows 150 years later the reason for this practice of not giving the name of the biological mother? Perhaps it was just a common practice.

Fannie Ellis Dickenson received a letter in 1959 from a Sylvia J. Jensen of Florida, who listed James Tabor as having married a second wife named NANCY WALL? I have not found this marriage record.
