A. Overbey Family History - Genealogy, history, family information and more!
This Overbey Family History was originally compiled by Jackie Overbey of Chanute, KS, and is currently being researched and updated by Don Russell of Florissant, MO. This site is a work in progress, so please check back for more information as we get it loaded onto these pages. We have only included the information about the family up to the early 20th century, if you have Overbey geneology information to share, corrections or additions to this info, or would like get get a printed copy of the complete family history, including the later generations, additional information, clippings and photos, please email Don at qbdon@wmconnect.com. Or by phone: 314-831-8666.

We have added a Sloman Family History page to this site. Two Overbeys married members of the Sloman family, and so many of us share both family backgrounds. Click here if you would like to go directly to the Sloman page.

The 15th Triannual Sloman Reunion will be held in Springfield, IL in October ?? date to be determined, depending on the Covid situation. Plan to come and enjoy hearing family history, the good food, and visiting! We will post more info when we get it.

An annual Overbey family reunion is held on the first Saturday in September after Labor Day. Info to come when plans are set. YOU ALL COME!

The Coat of Arms illustrated is officially documented in Burk’s General Armory. The original description of the shield is as follows:
Black: with 3 silver stars between silver narrow diagonal bands.” Above the Shield and Helmet is the crest which is described as: “A silver Lion’s leg erect, encircled in a gold ducal Crown.”

The colors have a meaning. Gold denotes generosity, valor or perseverance. Silver represents serenity and nobility. Black is for repentance or vengeance.

The Crest on top of the Overbey shield is a Lion.

King Henry V of England forbade anyone to take on arms of shield unless by right of ancestry or as a gift from the crown.

There was a time in my life that I thought I would give up on getting this Overbey Family History printed. I was not well and was very discouraged, because I could not find out about the family beyond the fact that they came from North Carolina or Virginia to Tennessee. Also so many of the families living did not seem to want to answer my letters to them. Some of the old records were destroyed during the Civil War. Then I found this poem. I thought maybe the world does not need me but my family does need to know as much about the Overbey family as I had been able to find.

The World Needs You
You're not old when your hair is grey,
Not washed up when your teeth decay,
Though your teeth are false, if your heart is true
The world has great need of you.

The longer you live, the more you know,
Then is the time to let wisdom show.
Though your joints may creak, if your mind is true
The world is in great need of you.

You may need glasses as your eyes grow dim,
Your body may no longer be light and trim,
But if your faith stays steadfast and true
The world is in great need of you.

But you sure are ready for that last sleep
When you hate the world and your grudges keep,
If you’re bitter and to yourself untrue,
Only then does the world stop needing you.

So forget your glasses and store-bought teeth,
Ignore your greying hair and joints that creak,
Bring to the world all you’ve learned that’s true,
And the world will never stop needing you.

"Overbey"

How many times have you had the experience where your name Overbey has been spelled differently than you spell it? Maybe we don’t spell Overbey correctly. The first Overbey to come to America spelled it Overbury is an English name and the meaning is “One who came from Overbury or upper earthwork or fort.”

All surnames come from general sources in Europe about 1100 A.D. Before that men were called by one name, as is still true in scattered parts of the world today. but when there are eight or ten names all the same some distinction had to be made. John’s son became Johnson, William’s son Williamson. Then the King decided every one should have a surname. Names were then taken from four sources: occupation, location, characteristics and father’s name.

Photo of Jackie and Paul Overbey This has been an interesting search for the Overbey ancestors. I have several complete genealogies from other branches of the family and a lot of interesting letters from others who have been interested in family finding or tree climbing. It has been most difficult to get letters answered from those we know are descendants of William and Mariah Overbey. I want to thank all of you who have helped me. It would have been much easier if I had been a native of Illinois instead of Kansas. The vital statistics are in your home counties and states.

Jackie Overbey passed away April 14, 1999 and I can not think of any tribute great enough to show our appreciation for what she did putting this wonderful family history together, the work and time she spent to me is mind boggling, she undoubtedly was a super dedicated gal. Paul d. Sep. 12, 1999. Thank you so much Jackie and to Paul for helping and encouraging her.....

- Overbey Family History -

Copied from the Greene County, IL Directory Year of 1879, page 593, Township 12, Range 11 West.

Overbey (spelling as in the book) Jefferson, farmer and stock raiser, Sec. 30, Post Office, White Hall. The above named gentleman was born in Greene Co. in 1833. The fifth of a family of 10 children. His father Archibald (Orerbrey) (Overbey) was a native of North Carolina, who moved to Tennessee and there married Miss Sarah Barnard. The date of the family settlement in Greene Co was probably 1828, when the prairies for many miles remained unbroken and from the door step of his father’s cabin young Orerbey was wont to watch with childish glee the graceful flight of vast herds of deer as they disported themselves on the prairie, or became lost to view among the timber. Mr. Orerbey relates that during his earliest years the county was thinly populated. At intervals in the timber was seen the pioneer’s cabin, as few settlers had ventured on the prairie.

Jefferson was m. in 1853 to Miss Emma Clark, dau of Ira Clark. By this lady he had two children, James Ira and Ida May. September 1859, Mrs. Orerbey departed this life, Mr. Orerbey resident of township 12, range 11, and there owns farm property. Like nearly all who bear the name his generosity and kindness of heart is unbounded.

Overby, William A., farmer and stock raiser. Sec. 21, Post Office, Greenfield, IL, was born in TN, in 1844, came to IL. in 1855; was m. in 1870 to Miss Gilly Drum, who was born in Greene Co., IL. in 1853. They have four living children. Etsle, b. January 15, 1874, Leroy, b. February 23, 1878. Pearly B. b. February 8, 1872 and an infant b. July 6, 1876 died. The father of this subject, William Overbey, was a native of Tennessee; was m. to Maria Surles (Mariah Searls), also a native of TN. The family came to Alton, IL, in 1855, and the father died a short time after landing, and the widowed mother was left with a family of five children, the oldest one being 12 years of age. She died in DeWitt Co., IL. in 1874.


Personally, I feel that the two families were closely related but I still have not discovered how. I do not know in which county in North Carolina Archibald was born, nor do I know in which county in Tennessee he lived before moving to Illinois. Our William Overbey left Lauderdale Co. Alabama in 1855. He also lived there in 1840 but he was on the 1850 Federal Census as living in Lauderdale County.


William Overbey and Mariah B. Searles Family

William Overbey was b., October 3, 1820, near Goodsprings, Giles Co. TN. He m. April 11, 1839 Mariah B. Searles, b. February 15, 1819, dau of Henry Surls (Searles) and Ann Beasley, dau of Jesse Fendal Beasley. (Click here to go to the Searles family history.) The Searles, Beasleys, Overbeys, Kimbroughs, Anthonys and Brownings moved from Eastern North Carolina to the Western part, then into Tennessee.

In the 1840 Federal Census of Giles Co., TN, on page 126, I found this information:
A. Overbay--1 male 5-10, 2 m 15-20, 1 m 40-50
1 female 0-5, 1 f 10-15, 1 f 20-30, 1 f 40-50
On page 90
William Overbay--1 m 15-20
1 f 20-30

I believe the two families were father and son. The 1850 Federal Census shows them living ln Lauderdale County. AL. near the towns of Anderson and Goodsprings. A lot of information was destroyed in the Civil War but some have found information in old Bibles. In the Federal 1860 Census of Greene Co., IL. Mt. Airy pct., Athensville post Office, Carlin Township, I found:

Maria Overby 41 f Sewing b. TN.
John H. 17 m Farm Hand b. TN
William A. 16 m
b. TN
Thomas F. 13 m
b. AL
James M. 8 m
b. AL
Luvitha J. 6 f
b. AL


We know that William Overbey and his family had left Lauderdale Co., AL. in 1855, to go to DeWitt Co, IL. William took sick and died enroute on March 15, 1855 and is buried in Alton City Cem., IL. Mariah and the children did go on to DeWitt Co., IL. I found a James Overbey there is the 1860 Federal Census. I also received this information from the old Bible of James Overbey sent to me by Thomas D. Overbey of Clinton, IL.

In compiling this genealogy I am using the numbering system, which is simple and easy to understand, number 1 is the first born in each family. I do not know which child in the family Anderson Overbey was--so I will number him 1. William had an older sister, so his number is 1-2. He is the 2nd child in the 2nd generation.

- Overbey Family Geneology & Family Information -

1. Anderson Overbey born 1794 or 1795 in Virginia. He m. Jane ??? b. about 1789 in Ireland. They lived near Goodsprings, Giles Co., TN. where their children were born. It appears they moved to Lauderdale Co., AL just across the state line about 1843. I noticed the towns of Anderson and Goodsprings located in Lauderdale Co. According to Alton IL Lovejoy Cemetery records Anderson died and was buried in Eastern side next to his son near the military section on 15 Mar 1855, one day after his son William. It appears the two families may have been traveling to DeWitt Co., IL. together.
