About Wynant Vanderpool, Jr.

Info per "The Descendants of Moses Vanderpool" by Mrs. Wayne Henderson, the granddaughter of Willilam Benton Vanderpool.

Wynant Vanderpool was born in 1782 in Wilkes County, North Carolina. He was the seventh child of Wynant Vanderpool (1743) and Naomi Kinman.

By 1806 Wynant Vanderpool was probably living in Campbell County, Tennessee where he married Margaret Carver.

Wynant Vanderpool (1782) and his family may have been in Ray County soon after his brother, John Vanderpool, and perhaps traveled with John Vanderpool. Early histories of Ray County, all state that the first white settler in Ray County was John Vanderpool who settled there at some time between 1805 and 1816. It is established that Wynant and Margaret Carver Vanderpool were in Ray County, Missouri at least by 1821.

Wynant and Margaret Carver Vanderpool were not on the 1820 Census for Tennessee which would indicate they left at least before the 1820 census was taken. Son Doctor W. was born on June 20, 1820. Different genealogies give the place of birth as Tennessee, Indiana and Missouri. If the place of Doctor Vanderpool's birth could be established, it would help to date Wynant and Margaret Carver's arrival in Missouri. Son Moses James, was born in Ray County, Missouri on August 01, 1821. This would indicate the family of Wynant and Margaret Carver Vanderpool, arrived in Ray County, Missouri by August 01, 1821. Government Land Records, verify a Wynant Vanderpool as obtaining 80 acres in 1824. However, this may have been Wynant (1795), son of John Vanderpool.

Early histories report that Wynant Vanderpool was a Baptist minister. Early Ray County histories describe him traveling from house to house in the Ray county area, preaching in the homes of families in these early frontier settlements. The History of Caldwell and Livingston Counties, Missouri, gives an account on page 93, as follows: "In the spring of 1832 adventurous pioneers began to push into the new country, unpeopled and virgin, but fertile and beautiful. Among those who are said to have come in at this time were Abraham Couts, Thomas Vanderpool, William Givens and Wallace McAfee, who settled in the vicinity of Kingston".

On page 99 it goes on to report, "The first preachers were Winant Vanderpool and John Stone, both Primitive or Old School Baptists, who lived in Ray County, but who visited this county (Caldwell County, area) as early as in 1832, and preached at the houses of the settlers on Shoal Creek".

Early histories of Ray County also relate the tragic accident in which Wynant Vanderpool accidentally shot and killed his son Thomas. Wynant and son Thomas, were traveling back south from Davis Township. They were doing some hunting on the way home when Wynant accidentally shot his son, Thomas. One report relates this as happening on Thanksgiving Day, near Kingston Missouri, another as happening on a Sunday.

On page 99, the History of Caldwell and Livingston Counties, Missouri reports,

" The manner of Vanderpool's (Thomas) death was particularly distressing. His father, Rev. Winant Vanderpool, an Old School Baptist preacher, had been up in the Daviess county settlements preaching in the wilderness and was returning to his home, in Ray county, in company with his son, Thomas. Nearing the Shoal creek timber Thomas started to look at some bee trees which he had discovered a short time previously, and his father accompanied him, carrying a gun. Passing through the brush, the lock of the gun caught and the weapon was accidentally discharged, and the unhappy father saw his son fall to the earth a bleeding corpse. Rev. Vanderpool was greatly distressed at the result of his want of care, and received general sympathy. It is said the accident occurred on a Sunday".

Thomas died in 1832 and is buried one half mile southeast of Kingston, Missouri in Caldwell County.

Wynant Vanderpool was minister of the Marion Baptist Church which was established in June of 1832.

Wynant Vanderpool was on the 1836 Voters Registration (spelled "Winant" Vanderpool) for Marion Township, Ray County, Missouri.

Wynant Vanderpool died in Ray County, Missouri in 1837 at 65 years of age. His wife survived him for eighteen more years.
