A survey of the Dawalt Cemetery was conducted in 1942. Included as part of the survey was a listing of important relics and heirlooms. The list included the following:
Portrait of Colonel Henry Dawalt, Sr.
Picture of brothers John Gross Dawalt, Daniel Dawalt and their wives.
Well-preserved copy of "Historical Notes Concerning the Dawalt Family in Indiana."
A grandfather's clock brought from Germany. This is an immense clock which has some unusual features. It shows the changes of the moon; days of the month and days of the week; with second and minute hands, in fact about everything would ever need to know even to the changes of the season. The weights of the clock are 16 lb. weights and the key that winds up these weights resembles a crank more than a key.
Large German Family Bible -- from which Emanuel ? is able to read. This family bible was bought to this country by the first Henrich Dewalt, who became a Rev. soldier.

Note: Newland DeVault, in his report, stated that he doubted that this was the original Bible of Henry Dewald of Pennsylvania. That Bible most likely passed to Henry's widow, then to her daughter and granddaughter. It was eventually sold at an auction.

Winsal Earl Dawalt . . .
The Roots Of Adventure Are At Home
By Frank S. Anderson, Leader-Democrat, Special Feature Correspondent

"We will call him Earl". So it was at the east edge of Washington Township almost ninety-three years ago that a chubby little rascal, Winsal Earl Dawalt, one of four sons belonging to Commodore Perry and Dora Isabel Cauble Dawalt saw his first light of day. Deep down go the roots of this good natured man of dry wit. Today he lives alone on the spot where he was born. Fantastic.
From these roots he has listened to the sound of the whippoorwill, the croak of the frog, the mocking bird, felt the thrill of a freshly turned furrow. He is a friendly man. You can call him Earl. There are those who say he would be friendlier if he weren't such a died-in-the-wool Democrat, but Earl doesn't think being a devout party man detracts one whit from friendship.
Winsal Earl Dawalt born September 20, 1885, is the way the listing reads in the old family bible. The listing includes three brothers: Perry, Charlie and Bynam; the last died in infancy.
1885 -- It was the year Daimler developed the internal combustion engine and Congress prohibited unauthorized fencing of public lands. There was an increase in the number of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe. The Post Office established special delivery service. Cleveland recommended suspension of silver-dollar coinage; relations were strained with Britain over Canadian fisheries.
Waterman perfected the fountain pen and Chicago's Home Insurance Building inspired the term "skyscraper". Leland Standford University was chartered and it was the year for the dedication of the Washington Monument.
Grandfather Henry Dawalt, man of influence, bore himself well in newly established Washington County. Within the family file today there are six "sheepskin" deeds indicating extensive land ownership. One of these dated 1826 with the heading John Quincy Adams, President of the United States, reads: "No. 2164 -- To all to whom these presents shall come, Greetings, Know Ye that Henry Dawalt assignee of George Holsa, had deposited in the general land office a certificate of the Register of the land office of Jeffersonville. It appears full payment has been paid for the east half of the northeast quarter of Section Thirty-Three in Township Three north of range three east containing eighty acres --- signed, John Quincy Adams.
But, direct family information shows that Henry became a land holder in 1814 when Salem had just become established as a town.
"I was born in Quaker Country," Commodore Perry's second son reflected pride from his modest living room. This meant much was going for him from the beginning: The community concern, industry of the Quakers plus the Dawalt drive. How could he miss?
After he learned to toddle it was no time till he came on strong, was assigned the family chore of watering the horses. It was natural that he should learn to ride just like his brothers. Commodore had a good strain of horses.
Mrs. Harvey, teacher, had a direct bearing on his coping with life and learning the 3 R's at Canton School. His mother, hardworking, instilled compassion within him. She gave him desire.
Quite suddenly, one Sunday morning an accident occurred at the family group prepared to attend the Methodist Church at Canton. Childlike and ready the youngsters hustled to a ringside seat, namely the upstairs window to watch Grandpa harness the horse to the family wagon. In the clamor for first to this high perch Earl was accidently shoved out fourteen feet to the ground below.
Church attendance was cancelled that day as little Earl got family first aid prior to the doctor's arrival. He lay unconscious for several days with a head concussion. After many weeks he improved. The scar remains on his head today. He lost time at school but nature mends well and once again the horse's mane was flying in his face as he raced into the wind.
He has a small pictorial book given to him by his Mother when he was ten as she returned from a Colorado visit. The book's name is "Out West". It contains vivid sketches of Buffalo Bill, Colorado scenes, Indian pictures: High Hawk, Little Wound, Spotted Elk, Ouray, the great Ute chief, etc. To Earl the book is priceless.
Outside and inside Quaker ranks there was a united community respect for the Friends -- the good Church-School quality they projected. The Dawalt boys attended Quaker High School (razed in 1956). It was located next to the now Orthodox Church location between Salem and Canton just off Highway 56. Adrenalin flowed within the battle-brittle football team of which Earl was a fullback. He learned the meaning of teamwork and played an aggressive game on a winning team.
Quaker scheduled and trounced Salem High and according to Earl, Salem never scheduled the Friends again. This was in the early 1900's. R. B. Handley was Quaker's gusty coach. He produced gutsy teams.
Earl remembers some of his teammates of yesterday: Jesse Dennany, Duris Howell, Osborne McLemore, Howard and Fred Newby, B. F. and Grover Grimes, Joe Albertson, Dick Newlon, Pratt and Jim Parker, Claude and Otis Shields, brother Perry.
He commented about Lee Mitchell and brother Perry, "they were the last two graduates of Quaker High School -- after that the school operated as a grade school."
Farming was Earl's life in good measure. He did it all. The Dawalts started with horse-drawn plow and kept pace with the threshing machine then the more sophisticated tractor. They had one of the first hay-balers in Washington County. They have had their roots in corn, oats, wheat, rye, hogs, cattle, horses, change and rolled with the punches.
Earl took great pride in the quality of his Red Hogs. He pampered and placed them on display at Washington County Fairs. He had a great interest in cattle. He deals on top the table with a talk turkey and put you money where your mouth is approach. He has served on the Board of Deacons in the Christian Church, dabbled in politics, built silos, tobacco barns, layed concrete block buildings, shown carpenter expertise, elected to the County Council; helped lay a new floor in the Washington County Courthouse. He has been versatile. His church background has been varied but today his heart beats for the Old Franklin Church.
In the early days he gained a reputation as a hunter, fisherman and trapper -- coons a specialty. An open invitation took him to a camp on the Kankakee River just south of Chicago about forty miles, a good spot for a sportsman. At the two-acre camp owned by Charlie Dusler and wife, campers became impressed with Earl's hunting, trapping and fishing proficiency.
Ironically, one day at camp, Earl was introduced to a man whose name was Al Capone. Winsal Earl played it cool and sensed immediately that he and the King of Chicago's Underworld were there for different reasons. Capone was a different kind of trapper and had no interest in coons. The big Honcho from Chicago was curious about the man from Washington County. What was his mission? But Quaker Country friendliness paid off for Earl. It melted Capone's suspicion and he too, was impressed by this man's special knack at hunting, fishing and trapping. The narrator tapped with emphasis as he told the story.
One evening they had a big supper. Fourteen coons that Earl had caught provided the main course. About 50-75 people were on hand to enjoy the delicacy. Some were Capone's hand-picked "businessmen" of few words. Earl concluded traffic was there that did not meet the eye though the only bottle of alcohol he ever saw was on Charlie Dusler's hip. It wasn't Earl's nature to feel uneasy, but shaking hands and skedaddling back to Washington County seemed like a sensible move. This is what he did.
He has been married two time, first to Merva Bracy, then to Gladys Day. Gladys died in 1958. Altogether with life's ups and downs he reflects how good the big picture has been. He has traveled, been over much of the United States and into Canada. In 1963 he and brother Perry went to the Rose Bowl at Pasadena. Perry died in 1973.
Today Earl enjoys visits from family members. Pete and Bernice Dawalt Hilton, Gladys Dawalt Colglazier check him out during the week. Harvey Hinds puts in a regular appearance. There are those who reflect tender loving care. Earl has a good appetite and enjoys a joke.
The life of Commodore Perry Dawalt's second son exemplifies a lesson -- a shining example. It could be viewed as the closing of the Dawalt dynamic stage as he hobbles from room to room, out to the mail box before settling down to T.V. His joints react stiffly but one detects a twinkle and a certain freshness of attitude. There is a glimmer of youth. He shifts quickly in his chair. Beauty is in he eye of one who sees.
It happened as the interview began. Warmth developed fast. A climate of gloom was totally absent. Sunshine was inside. Earl Dawalt is surrounded by things that have been precious to him for years. What a privilege! Family furniture retained becomes suddenly alive to provide companionship.
A huge grandfather clock keeping excellent time reaches close to the ceiling. It has been in the center of family fellowship and frolic for a long time. An electric clock synchronizes alongside to verify the accuracy of the older timepiece.
He rambled, "You can take scrawny cattle, feed 'em fast and they'll be tender. Remember that."
In 1965 it was a difficult decision when the property was sold to the late Harry Day. It marked the end of an ambitious family era that began in 1814. But with alternatives so few, it seemed sensible and the agreement provides for his use of the home during his lifetime.
A move from the family living room to the front porch found the weather ideal. An easy breeze tossed branches of two large maple trees in the front yard. The road ran close by. One of the trees is truly huge. "I remember when that tree was no bigger than a broom-stick and its growth was in doubt," said the man with hospitality as big as out-doors. He steadied his gaze on the big tree. "I don't have an enemy in the world -- I've outlived every damn one of them!"
Earl Dawalt is a friendly fellow, he lives to talk, to visit, but here's a tip -- don't visit during a T.V. football game.
Again he steadied his gaze on the big tree. There was so much more Quaker Country life he could have talked about. So much more.

Mrs. Ella B. Payne Dies After Lingering Illness
     Funeral rites for Mrs. Ella Brickey Payne, 80 years old, the widow of Lewis Payne, who died at her home in the Highland neighborhood, were conducted Friday morning from the residence by the Rev. Dr. W. R. Seat of Washington, Indiana, with burial in Crown Hill cemetery.
     Mrs. Payne, daughter of William and Peninah Bundy Brickey, was a highly respected resident whose loss will be felt not only by the family, but by the entire community. The principles and ideals advocated by the deceased, daily fashioned her life.
     Three sons, Claude, Salem, Cassius, East Saint Louis, Ill., Loran, Kokomo and four daughters, Mrs. Maude E. Tatlock, Covington, Tenn., Mrs. Martha B. Mitchell, Scottsburg and Mrs. Leafa M. Baynes and Miss Dollyne Payne, Salem, survive.

OBITUARY - The Salem Leader or The Salem Democrat; after August 19, 1936:

     “And at the end of the day comes rest.” Well may these words be said of the long useful life of Ella Payne, which ended at the close of the day, August 19, 1936.
     This life began March 13, 1856, and after a period of more than 80 years of loyal service to all with whom she came in contact, she heard the Master’s call, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful in a few things; I will make thee ruler over many; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
     She was the second child of William and Peninah Bundy Brickey. At the age of two her father died, at which time her mother and little brother, James, aged 4, came to the home of her grandfather and grandmother, Abram and Farabee Bundy who lived on what is now known as the Lemuel Purlee farm.
     In this home of thrifty pioneer stock she grew to womanhood well trained in all household tasks which later were to prove her as an efficient wife and mother.
     The grandfather and grandmother with whom she lived were of a long line of Quaker parentage coming to this county from North Carolina before Indiana became a state.
     Ella being a birthright member of this church, was thoroughly trained in its teachings and principles by which she governed her life and her home.
     Her education began at the log school house at the Quaker meeting house in this community. Later she attended the public schools and the May Academy in Salem. She was always very interested in the training and schooling of her children and was always anxious to give them such advantages as the home could afford. She often told her children of the great influence of one of her teachers, the late Elwood Trueblood, how his splendid advice and training had encouraged and inspired her to live for the highest things in life.
     On October 8, 1875 she was married to Lewis C. Payne, who departed this life December 26, 1929. Soon after their marriage they came to the present home to live and in this home nine children, four sons and five daughters, have grown to manhood and womanhood. These children are: Claude L. of Salem, Maude E. Tatlock of Covington, Tenn., Cassius of East St. Louis, William Herschel, who passed away March 26, 1908; Martha B. Michell, Scottsburg; Leafa M. Baynes, Salem; Lovan (Loran), Kokomo; Mary Lucretia, wife of Ray Newlon, who passed away August 30, 1926, and Dollyne Elizabeth of Salem. There are 17 grandchildren.
     Too much can not be said of this good woman. She was a loyal and devoted wife, an ideal mother, untiring in the training of her children, careful in the details of her home making and a woman of usefulness in this community in which she lived.
     Through a long period of ill health she has bourne her suffering without a murmur, always thinking of the comfort of others instead, and never her own, and as long as ability and strength were left she sought to serve those around her.
     As she advanced in years her countenance radiated the noble inner life, the assured trust and implicit faith she had in her Master.
     Her well lived life is a witness.
     Funeral rites were held at the home at 10:30 o’clock, Friday, by the Rev. W. R. Seat, of Washington, with burial in Crown hill cemetery.

She was buried in August 1936 at Crown Hill Cemetery, Salem, Washington Co., IN.
