"Thomas Greely JENNINGS and his brother {?}, Marshall JENNINGS were killed in the Cove Area of Greene County in the late 1800's. cir. 1895. Two of their first cousins, William RICKER and D.F. RICKER killed them. Thanks to Sherry HEMPEL, who saw my question on this forum and recognized what I was talking about, and wrote to me, and called me to tell me about the Indictment papers on them. The Indictment Papers were dated, Oct. 7, 1896. Now for my question...there was a woman that was also indicted with them, Hester NAULTY...Does anyone have any knowledge of who Hester NAULTY was, and what part she played in this murder for her to also be indicted. Does anyone know if these three were sent to prison for this? All four men involved, Thomas JENNINGS, Marshall JENNINGS, William RICKER, and D.F. RICKER were 1st cousins of both of my grandfather's, RICKER/ WADDELL. "
-Thelma Waddell Wisecarver

Here are my notes: There was a Hester Norton born 9/6/1875 in Madison County, NC to John Joseph Norton and Samantha Elizabeth Tarlton. I tried to do an overview of all the Hesters of the right age and this was the closest one I found that matched up, so I think Hester Norton married a Naulty.

There was a "James R. Naulty". He was born 11/1871 in TN. This would make him the right age to have married Hester Norton. According to the 1930 U.S. Census Hester indicated that she was first married when she was 16 yrs old which would have been 1891. But her husband in 1930 indicated he was married in 1902. She was married before!

In the 1900 U.S. Census of Shelton Laurel, Madison County, North Carolina, James Naulty is listed born 11/1871 in TN, Single and a day laborer. So maybe they didn't marry? But I'm pretty sure she married James Naulty about 1891. I just haven't found conclusive proof. I did not find another "Naulty" male (or female) in the area and he was the right age. But by 1900 they are not together, James Naulty is living the single life in Greene County, TN. In the 1910 census he was living with his wife, Eliza Jane Thompson, in Greene County, TN. He has a son named Benjamin Naulty living with them who was born about 1893. If James and Hester were married in 1891, did they have a son named Benjamin Naulty in 1893? In the 1920 census James is still with Eliza in Greene County, TN but they now have a son named Ottice Naulty born in 1919. James Naulty died in 1922. Eliza Jane Thompson Naulty remarried to John Moore. She died 1/10/1948 of cerebral hemorrhage in Greene County, TN.

W.C. and D.F. Ricker and Hester Naulty are indicted for murder of two of the men's first cousins in 1896. As of right now, I haven't found any of the 3 principles in the 1900 U.S. Census.

In the 1910 U.S. Census of Hot Springs, Madison County, NC, Hester and William Calloway Ricker are living as husband and wife with W.C.'s daughter, Sallie, and her husband, James C. Roberts. Sallie was born about 1891 in TN. The census says that W.C. is Sallie's father but that Hester is her "stepmother". This means that W.C. and Hester were not married to each other when Sallie was born in 1891. But 1891 is the age Hester gave as the age when she first married. So she married in 1891 but NOT to W.C. Ricker.

The 1910 U.S. Census says that W.C. and Hester had been married 10 yrs which would be about 1900. One year later she's down in Spartanburg, SC claiming to be the wife of Luther Brazil although W.C. Ricker was still alive and he married Martha Hudson on 2/27/1910 Greene County, TN. Did they divorce or were they not really married, just living together?

In the 1920 U.S. Census W.C. Ricker is married to Martha (Hudson) Ricker. They have a son named Albert Ricker born in 1915 so they must have been married (or together) at least 5 yrs and they are living in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC. Hester and Luther Brazil are still together in the 1920 census and living in Shelton Laurel, Madison County, NC. They have a 3 yr old son named "Johnson Brazil". David Fleenor "D.F." Ricker is living with their other brother, John Franklin Ricker, in 1920 in Greene County, TN. He was single and working as a carpenter.

D.F. Ricker died in 8/6/1921 in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC. Cause of death: Chronic valvular disease or heart (aortic regurgitation), contributory cause was excessive use of liquor. He was single.

In the 1930 U.S. Census, Hester and Luther Brazil are still living together with their 17 yrs old son but now he's named "Clois Brazil". In the 1940 U.S. Census, Hester and Luther Brazil are still living together with their 27 yrs old son but he's named "Jim Brazil" now. They continued to live in the Laurel section of Madison County, NC. Hester died 1/27/1945. Her death certificate said there was "No doctor, died of heart attack". She was 69 yrs old. Luther Brazil died 12 years later on 11/12/1957 of "Pulmonary edema (duration 1 day) due to broncho-pneumonia (duration 10 days) due to chronic bronchitis (duration years); other significant conditions were burns after fire (12 hours)". He was 71 yrs old.

W.C. Ricker died 1/1/1938 in Madison County, NC. Cause of death: Coronary sclerosis due to high blood pressure. He was 76 yrs old.

Hester may have been Hester Norton daughter of John Joseph Norton and Samantha Elizabeth Tarlton and, although she was in the 1910 U.S. Census with William Callaway Ricker as his wife, in 1911 she was in Spartanburg, SC with Luther Brazille as HIS wife (William Callaway Ricker was still alive). Had she and W.C. Ricker divorced?

Couple Are Extradited
Deputy Sheriff Comes From Tennessee To Take Back Man And Woman In Jail
Deputy Sheriff W.C. Ricker, of Greeneville, Greene Count. Tenn., arrived here yesterday with extradition papers for Luther Brazille, charged with larcenym and Mrs. Hester Naulty, who is charged with criminal trespass. They have been in jail for some time, arrested by Sheriff White at the Spartan Mill village, where they had been living as man and wife.
Mrs. Naulty declared to a Herald reporter that a mistake had been made in the arrest of herself and Brazille. She said they came from North Carolina and were married, and she felt no fear as to the outcome of the case.

Hester remained with Luther Brazil the rest of her life while William Callaway Ricker married Martha Hudson.

James Naulta and Hester Norton probably had a son named Benjamin Naulty born about 1893 but I found him in the 1910 U.S. Census but not before or after that. She also had a son with Luther Brazille named James Johnson Clois Brazil born about 1913-1917. He was in the 1920-1940 U.S. Censuses but I didn't find him after that.
