I regularly trawl the web looking for little snippets of information which may one day be useful for someone somewhere and recently I came across this link

http://www.sharlot. org/roundup/ artifacts/ SHM.shtml

Basically what it says, (it is a long read) is that the Sharlot Museum in Prescott Arizona holds a child's bed suspended in a wagon , there follows the name George Scholey, whether he was the owner or the maker is unclear. The year given is 1873 and the county is Yavapai. I was curious about this not least because of the spelling, the single o suggested that he was a later immigrant than the family who created the huge Schooley clan spread across the United States. If he was a later immigrant then possibly someone in England and someone in America could tie in with him so I lodged a message about it on

Imagine my surprise when a day or two later my own sister e mailed me, she I should explain is researching her late husbands family and he had an ancestor who was a mining engineer and distinguished citizen in the Philipines, Her E mail was to tell me that while scanning the web she had come across an IGI entry relating to a George T Scholey in the Philipines

Not thinking for a moment about the George above I took a look and on close inspection found that he not only hailed from Arizona but from the town of Prescott, the very town which possesses the Sharlot Museum.

I had to investigate further, typing George ~T Scholey into my browser I came up with this link

The article is mainly about George's wife but this excerpt tells us more about him

After graduating from college, Edith traveled to Victoria, Hong Kong to meet her fiance George T. Scholey, a mining engineer, who was working in the Philippine Islands at a mine called Balatok. The couple were married at Victoria on May 14, 1931 and lived at the mine for seven years. They were in headhunter country and Edith was once asked to photograph a headhunter murder scene in a ravine behind her house.

Edith and George had three sons: George Arther, born June1, 1931, Frank Dennis, born April 10,1935 and Guy Erik born November 10,1937. The family moved to Manilla in 1937 when George went into business for himself and had to travel to various locations but when war began to loom Edith and the children returned to the safety of Seattle.

George was commissioned by the Army to be in the forces in Luzon and was captured by the Japanese and held as a prisoner of war for three years. During that time Edith did not know if he was alive or dead. When he was finally reunited with his family in Seattle, George was very ill with malaria and scurvy and the family moved to Prescott where George recuperated. He eventually returned to the Philippines to reopens his mines and Edith remained in Prescott so that her sons would receive a good education.

So not only was he also a mining engineer in the Philipines but he came
from or at least retired to Prescott Arizona and this record is also
from Sharlot museum, definitely a small world , now I really wanted to know more about the family !

A bit more searching produced this

The article was predominantly about Elizabeth Scholey nee Wells and she was the mother of the Philipine based mining engineer George T Scholey , the section of her bio relating to her marriage and children reads as follows :

When Elizabeth was sixteen, her father arranged her marriage to George Terril Scholey, a cowboy and hard rock miner, who was twice her age. The wedding took place in Prescott on December 24,1900. "There was never any courting done," Elizabeth remembered in an interview published in the Phoenix Gazette in 1974, "and he never kissed me before we married. My father liked George. Dad gave his consent and that was all there was to it."George took Elizabeth by wagon to his family's ranch on the Aqua Fria River. There the first three children were born: Ila (1901-1912), Edward Donald (1903-1975), and George Thomas (1906-1981).

The Scholeys moved to Mayer where four more children arrived: Gladys Louise McNulty (1909-1984), Laura Marie Armstrong (1913), Lena Bark Franks (1913) and John Albert (1916-1936). In 1928, Elizabeth moved the family to Prescott so that the youngest children could complete high school and they lived in various houses on Pleasant, Mt. Vernon and Groves Streets. As George was a miner, he was seldom at home and Elizabeth raised her seven children on a very limited income and saw that they all received the education that she never had.

A photograph of Elizabeth Jane Wells Scholey can be seen here

So now we had a real life cowboy and hard rock miner to find out more about, It didn’t take long a quick check in cemetery records produced the following in and around a place called Walnut Creek

So most of these people had a definite connection with Ed Scholey, the notable exceptions are Thomas H Scholey who arrived in Prescott in 1880 and who has a confusing birth date, was he brother to Ed? Cousin? Or pure coincidence? The other possible exception is the cowboy himself George Terri, his gravestone gives no clues as to his parentage but the dates of birth of him and the others of his era hint at a connection

Now lets look at the life of our colourful businessman Charles K Scholey

This tells us about the Kiwanis Club of Prescott

You will see that he was one of the First Club Directors

All very respectable , well no he ran what an Englishman like me would call a Wild West Saloon

Charles Scholey partnered in a renowned watering hole named Scholey and Stephen’s in Prescott located on N. Cortez Street. In addition to libations, billiards, and pool, the bar also offered a bowl of beans to its customers

No this doesn't come from someone who disliked the guy it comes from his own daughter in laws biography

Now because Charles SON was called CLAIR and he married a woman who liked to be called PETE this might get complicated so I set out below the bio of Bertha, Charles daughter in law in full, this explains things better than I can


Bertha was born on April 30, 1908, in Prescott, Arizona Territory. She was the third of six children born to Paul Gerhardt and Dora Cordelia Leach Rosenblatt. She was of pioneer stock. As a child, her grandmother, Dora Morton, walked behind covered wagons from Kansas to Colorado in the 1860’s where her family engaged in ranching and mining. Bertha's father came west from his birthplace in Greeneville, Tennessee to Prescott in 1892.

Paul, who was hoping for a son after Cordelia (Delia) presented him with two daughters, named her Bertha Louise in honor of his youngest sister who had come to Prescott on a visit from the Rosenblatt family home in Tennessee. Soon, however, the namesake baby was nicknamed "Pete", as was her father. She was "Pete" for the rest of her life.

She attended Lincoln School, which at the time had grades one through four only. Then she attended Washington School, which was on the opposite side of town. Everyone walked in those days, and she often reminded her children that not only did the sisters walk to and from school, they even came home for lunch.

Prescott High School was next. She was very active in school participating in Glee Club and varsity basketball among other things. The athletic teams traveled by train so it was a grand adventure for the boys and girls to compete interscholastically over the northern part of the state.

With her older sisters, Pauline and Dora, the girls attracted a lot of attention from the high school boys. The Rosenblatts opened their house for guests and parties. While her sisters played in a band they organized, Pete chose to dance. She was beautiful, full of life, and petite. There were a host of suitors. Among them was a young Barry Goldwater who eventually proposed matrimony. Pete said she turned him down because he seemed to be a playboy who wouldn’t amount to much.

Pete graduated from high school in 1927 and attended the University of Arizona where she was a member of Pi Beta Phi. After three years at the University she left to marry Clair K. Scholey who was also from Prescott. Clair attended the University of Southern California. He was the son of Charles K. Scholey who was born at Walnut Creek, A.T. in 1875. Charles married Carrie Hurtle. Clair was their only child. Pete and Clair continued to live in Prescott after their marriage. Clair was very adventuresome and purchased an airplane. Together they barnstormed around the southwest giving rides for a penny a pound. She said it was not a very good way to make a living, but it was great fun.

Charles Scholey partnered in a renowned watering hole named Scholey and Stephen’s in Prescott located on N. Cortez Street. In addition to libations, billiards, and pool, the bar also offered a bowl of beans to its customers. The beans were rather famous in town, and were referred to as The Scholey Beans. For decades thereafter at family gatherings, Pete provided the delicious beans.

They had two daughters, Claire Kay and Cordelia ("Dee") both of whom were born in Prescott.

Pete and Clair bought a speedboat in partnership with Ralph Hooker, who was an old Prescott friend. This was about the time when Willow Creek Dam was built. Willow Creek filled, and a boat landing was installed at what was humorously called Lackawanna Beach on the western shore of the lake. Powerboat racing had a brief period of popularity in Prescott, cut short probably by lack of water in the lake.

Shortly after the beginning of World War II Pete and Clair moved to Bellflower, California, where they both worked at Douglas Aircraft making the various airplanes needed for the war. They worked different shifts so that one of them was always home with the girls. Pete’s Victory Garden assisted not only her family, but also many within the neighborhood. At the end of the war, the family moved back to Prescott where Clair opened a boat and cabinet building business. He was an exceptional craftsman.

In 1948 Clair died. Pete was left with two daughters, and no means to support them. There were few jobs for women, and in the insurance field they were a rarity. Pete went to work for Mayes and Heap, an insurance agency, as an underwriter. She quickly learned the business to a high degree of proficiency, and followed that career for the rest of her working life.

She married Tom Boone in Prescott. Later they moved to Gold Hill, Oregon, where they purchased a ranch. Tom tended to the ranch, and Pete was quick to return to work as an insurance underwriter for the Singmaster Insurance Company in Medford, Oregon. While in Oregon she was active in the Soroptimist Club. She especially enjoyed the organization’s work with the Ashland Shakespearean Festival.

Pete was always a wonderful and inventive cook. On the ranch she took great pride in preparing meals from the vast vegetable gardens, and their livestock. Her recipes for chile beans and potato salad, etc. were family favorites. She had a passion for reading and enjoyed an extremely broad variety of literature. Growing up with music all around her, she was especially fond of the sounds of the 1920’s and 1930’s.

In the late 1970’s Pete left Oregon and moved to Canyon Lake, California to be near her daughter, Dee Zasio and her family. However, yearning to return to her beloved Arizona, Pete moved back to Prescott in 1980 where she lived in the old Rosenblatt home at 110 Willow Street where she lived until her death three years later. Her ashes are inurned between her mother and father in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Prescott.

She was the first of the five Rosenblatt sisters to die. Her grandmother, Dora Leach Russell Bubar, her mother, Dora Cordelia Rosenblatt Walker, her sisters Dora Virginia Rosenblatt Heap, Louise Caroline Rosenblatt Lynch and Pauline Gerhardt Rosenblatt Tovrea are also commemorated in the Territorial Women’s Memorial Rose Garden.

Donors: Dee Zasio, daughter, and Paul G. Rosenblatt, brother.

Still on the subject of Charles K Scholey are you ready for a real life shoot out?, he is only mentioned briefly but it gives a hint of the times

Finally a word about Ed Scholey


Legible names on other headstones in Walnut Creek Cemetery were: "E.D. Scholey, 1851-1881, and Roland Scholey, 1878-1881". Mr. Scholey operated a way station at Walnut Creek. An item in the March 14, 1879 edition of the Arizona Miner stated, "Mrs. Ed Scholey, who keeps a very good station at Walnut Creek, is in town. She informs us that her husband, who received, two years ago, a severe paralytic stroke, is very low and is now unable to either walk or talk."

I still don't know who the child's bed belonged too but can't help feeling that it could possibly have been Cowboy George's

Some additional information has now been added:

Received from Kathy Lopez
Ed (E.S.) Scholey, born in 1851 in Illinois, operated a Hardyville Road way
station along Walnut Creek. Scholey died in 1881a few years after suffering a
severe paralytic stroke. His wife Mary, sons George Tom and Charlie moved into
the station where she furnished meals and lodging. Mary married Charles Behm the Camp Hualapai Post Office postmaster from 1882-1883. Ed and infant son Roland are buried at Walnut Creek cemetery.

12/5/1879 The Weekly Arizona miner


From Yavapai County, Arizona:

Edith Scholey
Edith Marie Foster Scholey, 91, of Prescott, died Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2000, in Yavapai Regional Medical Center in Prescott.
She was born Aug. 23, 1908, in Jerome, to Arthur Asbury and Agnes M. (Winterholer) Foster.
Mrs. Scholey graduated from the University of Arizona in 1930 with a bachelor's degree in mathematics. She minored in geology, specializing in the geology of northern Arizona. She married George Scholey in Victoria, Hong Kong, after her graduation.
They lived in a remote area on the Philippine Islands for several years, until they moved to Manila in 1937. During her first week in the Philippines, since Mrs. Scholey had a camera, she was asked to photograph a murder scene in the ravine behind her house, where one headhunter had murdered another headhunter.
Mrs. Scholey and their children returned to the United States for safety, and lived in Seattle from 1941 to 1945. When her husband was reunited with the family, they moved to Prescott, where she and the children remained when he returned to the Philippines to reopen his mines.
She was instrumental in forming the Republican Women's organization in Prescott, and served as its chairman in the mid-1950s. She was a member of the American Association of University Women in Prescott, and served as that organization's state president. She also belonged to the Eastern Star in Prescott, and served as Worthy Matron for the Rebekahs in Prescott, and as Noble Grand, the chief officer in the state.
Mrs. Scholey once presented a research paper on the textiles of the natives of the Philippines in Paris, France. Her love of writing began when she and a classmate wrote the only play ever written by Prescott High School students that was performed by high school students. Her story introducing artist George Phippen to the public outside of Prescott was published in Sunset magazine. As an avid stamp collector, she also wrote stories for stamp magazines.
She allowed local college students to use her vast library at her home, and helped to plan field trips for geology classes interested in northern Arizona.
Mrs. Scholey is survived by her sons, Frank of Prescott, George of Tucson and Guy of Puerto Penasco, Mexico; five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, George.
Private cremation was at Bradshaw Crematory, Prescott Valley, with burial at the IOOF Cemetery, Prescott.


You recall that I began this with telling you about the Philippine based George Scholey and about the cot. well i have heard from the Great niece of the gentleman concerned and this is what she tells me

 She writes as follows : I found your web site while looking up

information on my Great Uncle, George T. Scholey. He is the mining
engineer the Philippines your sister writes of!
My husband and I were in the Prescott area this last Memorial Day
weekend, staying with my Mother's cousin, we had a discussion that
eventually led me to
your site. George never came back to live in the US. He died in 1981,
I believe at work at his office in the Philippines. The child's bed
belonged to George's father, also George T Scholey. I have not seen
it displayed in the Sharlot Hall Museum since I was a child. Family
story says he was an infant when his family came from Coffeepot
Kansas to Arizona in a covered wagon and settled at Walnut Creek.
The "bed" was actually a papoose board that Indians used as an all-
purpose bed and cradle for infants. It and other items were donated
by my Great Grandmother, Elizabeth J Scholey ( his wife, mother of
mining engineer) when the museum was starting to preserve pioneer
An interesting hobby of my Great Grand Father, was hunting for
the famous Lost Dutchman Mine in the Superstition Mountains East of
Phoenix with a fellow by the name of Apache Jack. No I am not making
any of this up! He of course did not find the mine, and died after
helping fight a forest fire that burned the countryside that he so

Just thought I would add a bit to your AZ side of the Scholey
wanderings. I have no idea if there is a family link. For YEARS I
lessoned to my grandparents saying they were the only Scholey in the
phone book, with the net it is nice to see that there are more than
a few....

Thank you for your web site, I am making a copy for my Mother
All the Best, Elizabeth Toy

Read about the former capital of Arizona Prescott


Following on from the Scholeys of Arizona we have now unearthed and verified more important information about their roots.

It seems that the first Arizona Scholeys were Edward and Thomas, they in turn were sons of Charles Scholey and Amanda Hayden (AKA Headen). Amanda and Charles married 29thJanuary 1843 in Morgan County Illinois and Charles continued to live in Illinois until his death after 1870.

The census of 1860 and again 1870 reveal interesting information. Amanda does not appear so we assume she has died. In 1860 Charles a carpenter is living with: Edward aged 14 , he is one of  the Arizona Scholeys, this information contradicts the date of birth given on Edwards gravestone, he was obviosly born earlier in about 1846 , Thomas aged 8 another Arizona scholey (For more information about him see his obituary at,3486244 , 

Joseph aged 13 . I believe this brother stayed in Morgan county as he appears in 1870 with his father Charles both working as Millwrights. And a Mary aged 23. That is peculiar, Charles had married in 1843 17 years before the census so Mary is unlikely to have been his daughter, she was born, according to this census, in England so that suggests that she was a niece giving support to the family story that TWO brothers came to America.

In 1870 the census again shows Charles and Joseph with: Addie, Annie and George none of whom appeared ten years earlier , were they other nephews and nieces? Mary mentioned in 1860 does not appear but 1881 grave records for the area show her as dying aged 65 employed as a servant.

Charles had been born 27th January, 1817, baptised . 4th July, 1819, St. Michael & Our Lady's Church, Wragby, s/o Joseph & Mary (Barker), Pontefract, nurseryman He was one of twelve children although two died in infancy. Joseph seems to have married into the business. A newspaper recorded their marriage “ The Hull Packet, Hull, Tuesday, 29th January, 1805
On Sunday fortnight, Mr Scholey to Miss Barker, daughter of Mr. Barker, Nursery and Seedsman, all of Pontefract
Note: Joseph, s/o Nathaniel & Sarah (Taylor) & Mary Barker, married at St. Giles' Church, Pontefract

It seems to have been a shotgun marriage as Sarah the eldest child of Joseph and Mary was baptised in July 1805 just 6 months after her parents wedding was announced. 

Scandal was nothing new to this family , one of Joseph's brothers Nathaniel was landlord of a couple of Inns in Pontefract at different times, one of his sons George was prosecuted under a bastardy order relating to a child born to Jane Wright. This George died in 1895 in Barnsley and his wife was not Jane ! 

We should now look at Charles siblings back in England but firstly a word about the family itself. Scholeys are on record in Hemsworth and Ackworth as far back as the early 1400s and there is little doubt that the Pontefract Scholeys of which Charles was one were certainly connected to them. It is likely too that George Scholey Lord Mayor of London who was born in nearby Sandal Magna will be related in some way. What is certain is that Charles great grandfather was John , His grandfather (Johns son ) was Nathaniel born 1750 who married Sarah Taylor.Among Nathaniel's siblings was another John born 1740. This John was father to a John Scholey who became a distinguished and well respected solicitor based in Wakefield . This John , Josephs cousin in his will  left money for all of Josephs living children.

The children of Joseph and Mary were :

1 Sarah born 1805, baptised 3rd July 1805 at St Giles Church Pontefract died a few months later and was buried 8th Feb 1806 at the same church

2, Thomas Barker Scholey baptised 27th May 1807 St Giles, married Rosa G (Surname unknown) born 1817 in Jamaica West Indies (RE  Rosa   Tenants in this part of Pitt Street seem to change over fairly quickly. The Stones' neighbour, governess Miss Brown, who was here last year, has moved on and they will shortly gain another new neighbour, Mrs Scholey. Like Mary Stone, Rosa Scholey was born in Jamaica. She married Thomas Scholey there in 1835 and the couple migrated to England sometime before 1851, when they were living in Islington, Thomas working as a florist's salesman. In 1855 Rosa Scholey emigrated to New South Wales and through the 1860s and 1870s was the proprietor of a newsagent's, a registry office and a boarding house, dying in 1893. Meanwhile Thomas Scholey, 10 years older than his globetrotting wife, was last heard of as an inmate of St Mary's workhouse in Islington in 1861.

Prescott in the mid to late 1800's

I have (somewhat belatedly ) applied to the Sharlot Museum for permission to use this photo
As a ps, I have just read that in the Prescott area there is a legend of Apache gold having been buried in Superstitious mountains, Was that why the cowboy George was referred to as a hard rock miner? Scholeys are still active in and around the Prescott area are you one or do you know one if so please do get in touch
