    Subject: Re: CONDREY
    Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2001 9:45 AM

    A difficult problem. I've seen the posts by Esther Womack on the Condrey forum on this couple, and checked them against my records, but with no certainty.

    First, I doubt she was born in Hyde Co. I think Esther says she was married there. So far as I can tell, there were no Condry families recorded in Hyde Co. in any census until 1810. My earliest record in Hyde is the estate settlement of Richard Condry in 1806. You may have seen that; I posted the transcript on the Condra surname forum 2 Jan 2001, #112.

    The widow of Richard is Sarah, listed in the 1810 census of Hyde. The other Condrys, James and John, in the estate records, are not listed in the census of Hyde.

    However, there are a number of Condrys in adjoining Beaufort Co. dating from at least 1781, as shown in this record:

    US GenWeb Archives, 11/2/99

    Beaufort County Militia, 1781

    NC Division of Archives and History, Raleigh, NC. Contributed by Lida A. Overton and transcribed by Elizabeth Ross "A List of the Several Divisions of Affective Men in the Beaufort Ragiment of Militia Made the 20th of April 1781

    No. 3
    J
    ohn Condry George Condry

    Returned by William Brown, Colo. of the Beaufort Militia"

    And I believe that Dennis, the member of the Donelson Party at the Nashborough settlement of 1781, was in tidewater NC earlier than 1775. That is an inference from the evidence that he was in Kentucky in 1775 with other members of the group of adventurers who formed around Judge Henderson, the tidewater NC speculator who conceived the Transylvania scheme that led to the Nashborough settlement.

    My guess is that your Elizabeth is the daughter of one of these Beaufort families. In the absence of other evidence, I'd suggest as the most likely possibility that she could belong to the family of John, who I believe to be the one who was a signer of the Cumberland Compact. His signature can be seen in the image on the TN Archives website:

    http://www.state.tn.us/sos/statelib/techsvs/photos/compact4.htm

    We know John did not stay in the settlement, as Dennis did, because he is not listed among either the dead or alive who received land from the 1783 NC grant for the settlement, as Dennis did. My construction of the records is that John returned to NC, where he is found in the census of 1790, with Dennis, and in 1810 as a man of 45+, near three younger men (Dennis, William, and James) who are men of the generation of your Elizabeth. John appears to be the progenitor of the family of Condrys who stayed in the tidewater. Dennis and William, as you can see from the many postings on the surname forum, settled in East Tennessee, where there are numerous records of their activities.

    Elizabeth is a common Condry name, of course (my ggm was an Elizabeth Condry, descended from old William the Indian Spy, my 4ggf, through William's son Dennis and Dennis's son Lilburn). So it won't be easy to find proof of her parentage even if you find an Elizabeth mentioned in contemporary tidewater NC records. So far, I have not found a record of her.

    Good luck. I'll keep an eye out for more.

    Rev. Webb was first married to Sarah "Sallie" Copeland Webb. His second marriage was to Edith "Edy" Denton. He was a Methodist minister in White County, TN

    Jeremiah married Sarah "Sallie" Copeland 19 Jan 1809, Rutherford County, North Carolina. Sarah (daughter of William Copeland and Mary LNU) was born 16 Apr 1795, South Carolina; died 18 Feb 1858, White County, Tennessee; was buried Mount Pisgah Cemetery, White County, Tennessee. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    Sarah Copeland Webb was the daughter of William and Mary Copeland. Her husband was Rev. Jeremiah Webb. She was the mother of twelve children.

    Her obituary reads as follows:

    Sister Sarah Webb, daughter of William and Mary Copeland and wife of Rev. Jeremiah Webb, was born and raised in South Carolina and emigrated to Tennessee in 1817, embraced religion and joined the Methodist Church in which she lived an acceptable and useful member more than forty years and died February 18, 1858 in White County in her sixty-fourth year. She was a subject of deep affliction for twelve months before her departure but always evinced that spirit of resignation in which grace triumphed over human weakness. Not content with a mere nominal relationship to the Church, or the experience of the past as the ground of her hope, her anxious soul longed and struggled for full redemption in the blood of Christ and she often expressed unshaken confidence in God as the medium of all spiritual bliss. She conversed freely with the members of her family about her heavenly home, often expresssing an earnest "desire to depart and be with Christ". The future happiness of her children, three or four of whom were unconverted, was a source of great anxiety and often served as a serious obstacle to the depth of her own enjoyments. But when the final summons came, she was ready and urged her friends to pray that she might be relieved from suffering. As the soul struggled to be released from the frail casket, her faith grew strong and commanding and with the words of the dying martyr on her lips "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit" she bade adieu to earth to join the sainted throng above.

    Sister Webb was a good woman and "full of the faith and the Holy Ghost" . She has written her own epitaph in the hearts of those who knew her. Her Christian course and her undeviating ?__________? in every relation constitute the monuments of her mortal life, the memorials that suggest and perpetuate her virtue to those that survive her; and in following her as she followed Christ our happiness is forever sealed. May her prayers and good example serve as instruments in the conversion of her children and may the links in affection's chain that have been broken on earth be reunited in Heaven. J. W. Tarrant (or Tallant)

    "CALEB SWINDELL (SR.), son of JOHN SWINDELL, SR., was married to his first wife, KEZIAH _____, by 25 August 1767. We have been unable to indentify her parents. CALEB's will dated 26 November 1790, probated February Court 1791, mentions wife, ELIZABETH, and sons, CHRISTOPHER and CASON SWINDELL. His will dictated that the remaider of the estate should be equally divided between his children after the death of his wife, ELIZABETH.

    In a 1791 division of the remaider of the estate, his wife, ELIZABETH, received one-third and his heirs JESSE HARRIS, SR., THOMAS HARRIS, CHRISTOPHER SWINDELL, JAMES MASON, JESSE HARRIS, JR., ELIZABETH HARRIS, SUSANNA CARAWAN, JOHN BENSON, AND CASON SWINDELL received the remaining two-thirds divided into equal lots.

    Since we know that CASON and CHRISTOPHER were his sons, this equal distribution indicates that the others were his daughters and sons-in-law in right of their wives."

    Notes:

    27 Nov 2006:

    Hello, Cousin David, (always good to meet family!)

    Raleigh was not able to document Elizabeth’s parentage...just draw conclusions based on circumstantial evidence. He left us with possibilities, but nothing definitive. Here are the quoted excerpts from his e-mail that I have used in my database. I check the genforum periodically to look for updates on his work, since I have been unable to travel to NC to research myself. When I retire, maybe?

    Raleigh Condra Fields, an extensive Condra researcher, states that he believes Elizabeth is the daughter of Richard (d. 1806) and Sarah. "The will shows a girl about Elizabeth's age in the Hyde area at the right time. I believe that they come down from Dennis son of Michael, son of Dennis and Alice in Lancaster, VA." (20 Feb. 2005) "Richard's will did not name names. Sarah was the wife. He died 1806. I did not have another family living right where Elizabeth was listed as a child in the census. There was a James and John who bought items from the will/estate. They either all descend from Dennis and Lucresha Price, possibly son of Michael of the Lancaster, VA Condrys. Or, this is a group that came from the Henrico settlements. I had a John, James and Thomas in 1768 in Rowan, NC." (25 Feb 2005)

    "I have a Michael 1720's onto NC...sons of his son, John, Richard, Dennis, William, M. Charity." (4 Dec. 2004)

    In further discourse, Raleigh states:

    ...the 1790 census of NC shows Dennis and John CONDRY in Beaufort, and William In Tyrell, so Richard in Hyde is not far away. We don't know for sure whether these are the Tennessee group, since we know that men of these names were also involved in multiple land deals in East Tennesseee in the 1780-90's. but some people of this period were much more mobile than we might imagine, and it's easy to find records showing that some of these adventurers would park their families a safe distance from the frontier while they travelled back and forth making the required improvements to claim land, returning home to file claims, gather crops, etc. And we know that John and Dennis were involved in the Robertson-Donelson expedition to acquire land in Transylvania (later Kentucky) and Nashborough settlement, and that those expeditions began from North Carolina. So until I have proof that they were NOT, I assume that this trio of CONDRYS in the Tidewater are the same men as the East Tennessee trio of Dennis, William, and John.

    Which is your line, David? Mine is through Cason’s and Elizabeth’s son C.C. and Eliza WEBB>George Washington and Eliza Ann KEATHLEY>Herschel and Lela PITMAN. I would love to compare info.

    Hello Again, Elizabeth shows up in Beaufort/Hyde as a Condry. We suspect that she is a descendent of Dennis, who was an Irish/Manx sea captain. Into America in Massachusetts and then possibly into NC Tidewater. I have a female about her age living in Richard and Sarah's house in 1806. We have a lot of details on this family and it appears that there were two branches, one from the Mass area and one from VA. Both very early into America.

    There is also a possibility of two other older possibilities for parenting, that we have not been able to trace, one a Michael who appears in Salisbury in NC. No records after 1760s and a John, early 1700s twin of a Catherine from Lancaster/Northumberland Co.,VA.

    No records have been found to date for these two known men from the original Dennis and Alice pairing early 1700s.

    Keep in Touch. Rawleigh Condra Fjeld

    Hello, Cousin, Well we have just begun to unravel the N.C. early Condrys. There was a Michael and Richard mid 1700s in N.C. and many later cousins. Also, a Claiborne from very early times. We have most of the Va and Tn and Ky Condrys sorted through, but the early N.C. group has yet to be sorted. We are gathering all tid bits from N.C. Condrys in order to begin matching them. The Condrys came to America mid 1600s to 1670s in Lancaster, Cty Va and there is much info on them from heavy research for the last 15 years.

    I will put your notes with the work and maybe at this years reunion someone will be able to add to it. Best Rawleigh Condra Fjeld

    John's signature, by the way, can be seen on the website of the TN state archives. John also appears in this record:
    US GenWeb Archives, 11/2/99
    Beaufort County Militia, 1781

    John Condry

    The presence of another Condry in Beaufort--George Condry--complicates the possibilities. If all these guys were brothers or cousins, then the Dennis of Barbour Co, AL could be the son of almost any of them.

    DAR Unveils John Knowles Monument

    as printed in the Sparta Expositor, Thursday, September 11, 1969

    Contributed by Jane Hembree Crowley

    ....God shed his grace on thee, and crowned they good, with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea......

    Thus America was praised, and one who helped gain liberty for this foundling nation almost 200 years ago was honored.

    The local chapter of the Daughters of American Revolution unveiled a monument at the grave of pioneer White Countian John Knowles at Mr. Pisgah Cemetery Sunday.

    Knowles, a revolutionary soldier, came to White County from Virginia, in the early 1800s, settling in the Mr. Pisgah neighborhood--the site of his home being just behind the present church and cemetery. He is the ancestor of the Knowles clan in White County--and possibly has more descendants in this county than any other man.

    Among those taking part in the ceremony were Regent Mrs. Bob Sorrell, Mrs. Lela Taylor, Miss Gertrude Saylors, Mrs. Olivia Knowles Young, Willard Hudson, Jerry Jared, C.L. Fisher, Jack Wright and Freeman Ward, who accepted the monument on behalf of the descendants.

    Some one hundred persons gather under the cedar trees in the cemetery for the ceremony, and blended their voices in the singing of "America" to open the dedication.

    Miss Saylors, a descendant of Mr. Knowles , read the history of John W. Knowles, adding a bit about the present day family. Her address follows:

    John W. Knowles was born July 4th, 1749, in the Echochel parish of Autrim County, in the town of Belemenah, Ireland. He married Mollie (surname unknown) in Ireland. Although he was Irish, it is said he was not a big "talker".

    As a young man he took part in one of Ireland's Rebellions. The British Army crushed this rebellion and sentenced some of the leaders to hang...John Knowles was one of them. Before the British could execute him, his sister tied bed sheets together and lowered him from an upper story of the jail. He never saw his sister again.

    He and Mollie, his wife, and their two little sons, escaped the country and crossed the sea to our American Colonies. He was living in Pennsylvania when we Americans rebelled against British Rule in this country. John Knowles volunteered for 12 months tour of duty in the American cause, 1775.

    The first year he served as private: providing beef cattle for the soldiers. The second year, he served as a sergeant, guarding the Carlisle Barracks, for 12 months. Except, for this one year of guard duty, he was directed to provide beef cattle for the soldiers and forage for the army horses.

    When he would start these cattle to slaughter at headquarters, for the soldiers, he routed the cattle by his home, near Shippenburg, PA, so he could call by to see his wife and one child. (one child must have died after they reached America.)

    John W. Knowles reenlisted each year for 12 month tours of duty. ..in all, he served about six years or, until Cornwallis surrendered. Among several things John Knowles stated under oath, was that he had seen General George Washington, and General Green--he saw, them, he said, but had no personal acquaintance with them.

    Following the American Revolution he moved to Augusta County, VA. There, his daughter, Elizabeth , married Archibald McDaniel, 1795. Archibald, was also a veteran of the Revolution. He and Elizabeth moved to Tennessee. When Archibald became ill to die, he left it to John Knowles to select a place to bury him. The rectangular spot, encased by large stones, flush with the ground, (in Mt. Pisgah Cemetery) was Knowles' choice. ..It was on Knowles' own farm. McDaniel was buried in 1808 and his is said to be the first grave in what became the large Mr. Pisgah Cemetery.

    From Augusta County, VA, John Knowles moved to Amhurst County, and finally to Pendleton County, from which he moved to Tennessee to the place just across the hedgerow east of the cemetery. A large Buncombe apple tree-perhaps a second generation sprout from an original Buncombe apple tree, set out, no doubt by Knowles himself, may be seen at the old home place. The last of the old log house has not been gone too long.

    As to the dispute regarding John Knowles or W. W. Phillips being the first sheriff of White County: (many old times say they always heard that John Knowles was the first sheriff) Monroe Seals , who married into the David Goodwin family....(David, in another capacity, being one of White County's first officials) and of necessity, crossing paths with whomever the fist sheriff had been: Seals , author of "White County History" said, Knowles, not W.W. Phillips was the first sheriff......Mrs. Mary Mitchell says, "Phillips' name, as first sheriff, is on the books. Mrs. McDowell Blankenship , author of "The Uneven Yoke", states that John Knowles was appointed "deputy" sheriff of White County in 1807. This word "deputy" may be the solution to the dispute.

    Mollie Knowles, wife of John W. died about 1821 and according to custom was buried in their private family plot, that became the large public Mr. Pisgah Cemetery. About 1822, their son Isaac, died in North Carolina, leaving his little son, William , an orphan.

    "Grandpa" Knowles, about 73 at the time, mounted his big gray horse, (10 hands high) and headed for North Carolina to pick up this little orphan. (A ride of some 600 miles.) He remained in North Carolina about a year.

    In the meantime, his sons John K. Knowles and wife Sarah, John Rascoe and wife, Patsy, Christopher Swindle and wife, Mary Ann, having listened to his praise of Tennessee, had decided to return with him to make new homes for themselves in Tennessee. This was 1823.

    It was the big gray horse with little William riding behind "Grandpa", that was plunged into strange rivers to measure the depths and try for a ford, before the oxen teams with the loaded wagons, enroute to Tennessee, were risked in those waters. The John Knowles family and the John Rascoe family became devoted to each other.

    For the fast-stepping big gray hourse's fourth and last trip to North Carolina, he was borrowed and ridden by John Rascoe, on account of a Rascoe death in North Carolina.

    Toward the very end of John Knowles' life, as his vigor waned and he became a bed patient, John Rascoes' wife, Pasty, spent much time at his bedside. He died in his sleep, with a smile on his bearded face, March 21, 1836, age 80. He was buried beside his wife, Mollie, in what became Mr. Pisgah Cemetery.

    The War Department in 1969 issued a monument for his grave.

    1. John Knowles married a Hutson:

    2. Elizabeth married Archibald McDaniel;

    Since this article was written in 1969, some discrepancies have been found regarding the children of John Knowles. Please read the note located here.

    John Knowles (cont.)

    Listed below are some discrepancies between the 1969 article from the Sparta Expositor, and two primary sources on John Knowles: The Other Bunch by Sharon B. Almas Swindell, and the non-published but well documented work by Harold R. Wallace (now deceased) called The Descendants of John Knowles.

    If you can provide any information or documentation on the issues below, please contact Jane Hembree Crowley, who is researching these discrepancies.


    The areas needing documentation are:

    1. Spouse of Mary "Polly" Knowles. Wallace's documented work says the spouse was Stephen K. Charles and lists descendants. The article and the Swindell book say her spouse was a Badger but that info is not documented. Was Mary married to both men? Or is one incorrect?

    2. Documentation is needed for the son Joseph, not listed in the article.

    3. Documentation is needed for the son Isaac listed in the article.

    4. William Knowles married # 1. Swindell and #2 Denton, not a Womack as listed in the article?

    5. John II married Mahala Hardin not Hutson? Hardin not listed in either source but appears in LDS records. Both book sources above only list her given name.

    DAR Unveils John Knowles Monument

    as printed in the Sparta Expositor
    Thursday, September 11, 1969


    ....God shed his grace on thee, and crowned they good, with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea......

    Thus America was praised, and one who helped gain liberty for this foundling nation almost 200 years ago was honored.

    The local chapter of the Daughters of American Revolution unveiled a monument at the grave of pioneer White Countian John Knowles at Mr. Pisgah Cemetery Sunday.

    Knowles, a revolutionary soldier, came to White County from Virginia, in the early 1800s, settling in the Mr. Pisgah neighborhood--the site of his home being just behind the present church and cemetery. He is the ancestor of the Knowles clan in White County--and possibly has more descendants in this county than any other man.

    Among those taking part in the ceremony were Regent Mrs. Bob Sorrell, Mrs. Lela Taylor, Miss Gertrude Saylors, Mrs. Olivia Knowles Young, Willard Hudson, Jerry Jared, C.L. Fisher, Jack Wright and Freeman Ward, who accepted the monument on behalf of the descendants.

    Some one hundred persons gather under the cedar trees in the cemetery for the ceremony, and blended their voices in the singing of "America" to open the dedication.

    Miss Saylors, a descendant of Mr. Knowles , read the history of John W. Knowles, adding a bit about the present day family. Her address follows:

    John W. Knowles was born July 4th, 1749, in the Echochel parish of Autrim County, in the town of Belemenah, Ireland. He married Mollie (surname unknown) in Ireland. Although he was Irish, it is said he was not a big "talker".

    As a young man he took part in one of Ireland's Rebellions. The British Army crushed this rebellion and sentenced some of the leaders to hang...John Knowles was one of them. Before the British could execute him, his sister tied bed sheets together and lowered him from an upper story of the jail. He never saw his sister again.

    He and Mollie, his wife, and their two little sons, escaped the country and crossed the sea to our American Colonies. He was living in Pennsylvania when we Americans rebelled against British Rule in this country. John Knowles volunteered for 12 months tour of duty in the American cause, 1775.

    The first year he served as private: providing beef cattle for the soldiers. The second year, he served as a sergeant, guarding the Carlisle Barracks, for 12 months. Except, for this one year of guard duty, he was directed to provide beef cattle for the soldiers and forage for the army horses.

Among several things John Knowles stated under oath, was that he had seen General George Washington, and General Green--he saw, them, he said, but had no personal acquaintance with them.

    Following the American Revolution he moved to Augusta County, VA. There, his daughter, Elizabeth , married Archibald McDaniel, 1795. Archibald, was also a veteran of the Revolution. He and Elizabeth moved to Tennessee. When Archibald became ill to die, he left it to John Knowles to select a place to bury him. The rectangular spot, encased by large stones, flush with the ground, (in Mt. Pisgah Cemetery) was Knowles' choice. ..It was on Knowles' own farm. McDaniel was buried in 1808 and his is said to be the first grave in what became the large Mr. Pisgah Cemetery.

    While looking on the internet tonight, I was sorry to see that so much confusion exists about the marriage of John W. Knowles, b. 1749 and progenitor of the White County, TN Knowles family. Some show him marrying in Ireland and some show him marrying in PA.

    One thing is clear from PRIMARY sources in PA, that "some" John Knowles married a Hannah Preston in PA and not in Ireland. IF you believe that the White Co. John Knowles married Hannah Preston, then it follows that you have to believe that he married in PA. It would be totally incorrect to say that John Knowles married Hannah Preston in Ireland. The marriage is of RECORD in PA.

    I personally do not know if our John married in Ireland or in PA, but IF John Knowles of White County history did marry Hannah Preston, he married her in PA on March 21, 1770. I hope everyone can agree and correct any records you may have to show that the 1770 marriage occured in PA and NOT in Ireland. The marriage record can be obtained from PA.

    The second point is this: Did the John Knowles born in 1749 marry Hannah Preston or did some other John Knowles marry her? Does anyone have proof on this? There were other John Knowles in PA at the time.

    Additionally it is well-known locally in White Co., TN that John's wife was called Mollie. So...was this Mollie really named Mary (Mollie) Hannah Preston or was Mollie a totally different person from Hannah Preston?

    Those who find this of interest need to clarify these points if possible by research of marriage and immigration records to see if anyone came with John from Ireland and to determine which John Knowles Hannah Preston married.

    Will anyone volunteer to pursue either of these issues or suggest HOW to research these points? Are immigration records available from Ireland for the time period BEFORE 1770? Has anyone searched for a Hannah (Preston) Knowles in PA or other areas during the same time period that Mollie was living with John in White County, TN?

    It seems to me that these issues need to be clarified by serious Knowles researchers. Please clarify the location of the 1770 marriage information to any of your Knowles correspondents as well to help clear up that info.

    Subject: Re: CONDREY
    Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2001 9:45 AM

    A difficult problem. I've seen the posts by Esther Womack on the Condrey forum on this couple, and checked them against my records, but with no certainty.

    First, I doubt she was born in Hyde Co. I think Esther says she was married there. So far as I can tell, there were no Condry families recorded in Hyde Co. in any census until 1810. My earliest record in Hyde is the estate settlement of Richard Condry in 1806. You may have seen that; I posted the transcript on the Condra surname forum 2 Jan 2001, #112.

    The widow of Richard is Sarah, listed in the 1810 census of Hyde. The other Condrys, James and John, in the estate records, are not listed in the census of Hyde.

    However, there are a number of Condrys in adjoining Beaufort Co. dating from at least 1781, as shown in this record:

    US GenWeb Archives, 11/2/99

    Beaufort County Militia, 1781

    NC Division of Archives and History, Raleigh, NC. Contributed by Lida A. Overton and transcribed by Elizabeth Ross "A List of the Several Divisions of Affective Men in the Beaufort Ragiment of Militia Made the 20th of April 1781

    No. 3
    J
    ohn Condry George Condry

    Returned by William Brown, Colo. of the Beaufort Militia"

    And I believe that Dennis, the member of the Donelson Party at the Nashborough settlement of 1781, was in tidewater NC earlier than 1775. That is an inference from the evidence that he was in Kentucky in 1775 with other members of the group of adventurers who formed around Judge Henderson, the tidewater NC speculator who conceived the Transylvania scheme that led to the Nashborough settlement.

    My guess is that your Elizabeth is the daughter of one of these Beaufort families. In the absence of other evidence, I'd suggest as the most likely possibility that she could belong to the family of John, who I believe to be the one who was a signer of the Cumberland Compact. His signature can be seen in the image on the TN Archives website:

    http://www.state.tn.us/sos/statelib/techsvs/photos/compact4.htm

    We know John did not stay in the settlement, as Dennis did, because he is not listed among either the dead or alive who received land from the 1783 NC grant for the settlement, as Dennis did. My construction of the records is that John returned to NC, where he is found in the census of 1790, with Dennis, and in 1810 as a man of 45+, near three younger men (Dennis, William, and James) who are men of the generation of your Elizabeth. John appears to be the progenitor of the family of Condrys who stayed in the tidewater. Dennis and William, as you can see from the many postings on the surname forum, settled in East Tennessee, where there are numerous records of their activities.

    Elizabeth is a common Condry name, of course (my ggm was an Elizabeth Condry, descended from old William the Indian Spy, my 4ggf, through William's son Dennis and Dennis's son Lilburn). So it won't be easy to find proof of her parentage even if you find an Elizabeth mentioned in contemporary tidewater NC records. So far, I have not found a record of her.

    Good luck. I'll keep an eye out for more.

    I HAVE THIS IN MY DATA MAYBE IT WILL HELP.

    5. John Swindle, Sr. was born on 3/20/1676 in Rappanock (Farnham Parish),
    Richmond Co., Virginia. He died before 1772 in Hyde Co., North Carolina.
    John married Mary McPherson (daughter of William McPherson Sr.) about 1696
    in Lower Norfolk, Currtuck Co., Virginia. Mary McPherson died between
    3/2/1747 and 9/2/1751. She was born in Virginia (possibly NC or Scotland).
    John Swindle Sr. and Mary McPherson had at least the following children:

    5A. Timothy Swindle that married Rebecca Crees (See 6th Generation below)

    5B. John Swindle, Jr. was born 1723 in Albemaire,Hyde Co NC. He died 1775
    in Hyde Co NC. He married Rebecca Harris that was born 1726 Hyde Co NC
    before 1748.

    5C. Josiah Swindle, Sr. was born 1732 in Albemarie, Hyde Co NC. He married
    Esther Balance (born about 1732-died about 1810 NC) in 1776. Josiah
    Swindle, apparently a carpenter by trade, died about 1806 in Hyde Co NC.

    5D. Caleb Swindle, Sr.

    5E. William Swindle, Sr. was born about 1735 in Hyde Co NC. Died Hyde Co
    NC in 1810. He was married to Dina (Dinah) (unknown) about 1755 in Hyde Co

    5F. Zedeklah Swindle was born on 4/4/1737 in Albemarie, Hyde Co NC. He
    died 1795 in NC. He was married to Pheby (unknown) about 1781. Pheby was
    born 1740 and died Albemarie, Hyde Co NC.

    Note: There may have been another child: Parker Swindle, b. 1732,
    Albemarie, Hyde Co., NC; d. abt 1806, Hyde County, NC.


    Notes for JOHN SWINDELL: Ellen Mitchell, researcher in Hyde CO. N.C. indicated that there was no will for John Swindell 1, but there was an Estate Record in Hyde CO. VOl-1 part 1, about 1722. She also indicated that his son Zedekiah's birth record was recorded in Pasquotank Co., N.C. (Pasquotank was a precinct of Albemarle Co, then.)
    Records indicate that John purchased many different farms from 1729-1765 and sold some as well. These usually were from 100 acres to 1000 acres. He must have accumulated about 5,000 acres of land. Much of this land, was of little cost, and some for 'quitrents'.
    1757 Dec. 7 Hyde Co. N.C. : John Swindell, planter, with love and affection to Josiah Swindell, Son, 150 acre plantation in Mattamuskette. Witness Benjamin Mason and Stephen Denning.

    Hello Dave,

    I enjoyed visiting with you and reading your files. I offer the following information on Caleb which prompted my posting on the genforum to begin with:

    from the book entitled: " Hyde County NC Court Minutes and Orphans Book, Book II."

    Registration of Deeds by John Swindall to his sons Dec. 1757-Mar 1758 Quarter Sessions Page 11.

    John Swindall to his son Caleb Swindall for 240 acres
    John Swindall to his son Zedekiah Swindall for 100 acres
    John Swindall to his son Josiah Swindall for 150 acres
    John Swindall to his son William Swindall for 150 acres
    John Swindall to William Turner for 160 acres (could this be a son-in-law?)

    Court Session 1763 Page (97)-49:

    "3 Deeds from John Swindall, one to Caleb Swindall for 150 acres of Land and One to Joseph Swindall Son o(sic) Caleb Swindall for 65 acres of land, the other to Zedekiah Swindall for 200 acres of land Exhibited into Court and acknowledged by the said John Swindall to be by him duely Executd. They are Ordered to be Registered."

    (160)-25 August Term 1785:
    On motion John Swindal is Appointed by the court Guardien to William Swindal Orphan of William Swindal Decd. and Entered into bond in the sum of fifty pounds David Spencer and William Spencer his Securitys ordered that Letters of Tuition Issue.

    My Note: Caleb Swindall had a son named Joseph?
    From the book entitled " (OLD) Rappahannock County Orders 1689-1692", p.195 Rappahannock County Court 7th of January 1690/1:

    -Ordered that James Samford take in to his Custody all & singular the Estate of TIMO. SWINDALL late deced on behalfe & for the use of the Orphans of the sd SWINDALL and that he returne an act. thereof under his hands in writing to the next Court held for this County.

    In another entry (which I can't locate at the moment) John Swindall appeared in court to ask that he be released from James Samford. Court refused the request.

    From the book entitled "The Registers of North Farnham Parish 1663-1814 and Lunenburg Parrish 1783-1800 Richmond County, Virginia" the following birth is recorded:

    Swindall, John son of Timothy and Sarah Swindall, 20 March 1676

    My Note: appears that Timothy died when John was about 14 yrs of age. John is the only Swindall who's birth is recorded in this book but the above order uses the plural term "orphans".

    Yes it's me, and I'm still looking! In the book entitled "Hyde County Court Minutes and Orphans Book 1756-1785 Book II" I find the following entry:

    1763 Term (97)-49
    "3 Deeds from John Swindall, one to Caleb SWINDALL for 150 Acres of Land and One to Joseph SWINDALL Son o(sic) Caleb SWINDALL for sixtyfive Acres of Land, the other to Zedeciah SWINDALL for 200 Acres of Land Exhibited into Court and acknowledged by the said John SWINDALL to be by him Duely Executd. they are Ordered to be Registered."
    END
    --------------
    This indicates that Caleb had a son named Joseph. Would it also indicate that he had a wife before Keziah?
    -------------
    In the same book is listed another entry:

    Dec. 1757-Mar. 1758 Term

    (12)-195
    Deed from John SWINDALL to his Son Caleb Swindall for 240 acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his Son Zedekiah Swindall for 100 acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his son Josiah Swindall for 150 acres of land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his son William Swindall for 150 Acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to William Turner for 160 Acres of Land, etc.
    Deeds Ordered to be Registered. (no mention of where the land was located)
    END
    ---------------
    Could William Turner be a son-in-law?
    I know there is a John Swindall Jr. but he was not listed in this entry.

    Can anyone shed light on the son Joseph, of Caleb or on the William Turner who received land from John Swindall?
    Thanks, Esther

    "CALEB SWINDELL (SR.), son of JOHN SWINDELL, SR., was married to his first wife, KEZIAH _____, by 25 August 1767. We have been unable to indentify her parents. CALEB's will dated 26 November 1790, probated February Court 1791, mentions wife, ELIZABETH, and sons, CHRISTOPHER and CASON SWINDELL. His will dictated that the remaider of the estate should be equally divided between his children after the death of his wife, ELIZABETH.

    In a 1791 division of the remaider of the estate, his wife, ELIZABETH, received one-third and his heirs JESSE HARRIS, SR., THOMAS HARRIS, CHRISTOPHER SWINDELL, JAMES MASON, JESSE HARRIS, JR., ELIZABETH HARRIS, SUSANNA CARAWAN, JOHN BENSON, AND CASON SWINDELL received the remaining two-thirds divided into equal lots.

    Since we know that CASON and CHRISTOPHER were his sons, this equal distribution indicates that the others were his daughters and sons-in-law in right of their wives."

    Notes:

    27 Nov 2006:

    Hello, Cousin David, (always good to meet family!)

    Raleigh was not able to document Elizabeth’s parentage...just draw conclusions based on circumstantial evidence. He left us with possibilities, but nothing definitive. Here are the quoted excerpts from his e-mail that I have used in my database. I check the genforum periodically to look for updates on his work, since I have been unable to travel to NC to research myself. When I retire, maybe?

    Raleigh Condra Fields, an extensive Condra researcher, states that he believes Elizabeth is the daughter of Richard (d. 1806) and Sarah. "The will shows a girl about Elizabeth's age in the Hyde area at the right time. I believe that they come down from Dennis son of Michael, son of Dennis and Alice in Lancaster, VA." (20 Feb. 2005) "Richard's will did not name names. Sarah was the wife. He died 1806. I did not have another family living right where Elizabeth was listed as a child in the census. There was a James and John who bought items from the will/estate. They either all descend from Dennis and Lucresha Price, possibly son of Michael of the Lancaster, VA Condrys. Or, this is a group that came from the Henrico settlements. I had a John, James and Thomas in 1768 in Rowan, NC." (25 Feb 2005)

    "I have a Michael 1720's onto NC...sons of his son, John, Richard, Dennis, William, M. Charity." (4 Dec. 2004)

    In further discourse, Raleigh states:

    ...the 1790 census of NC shows Dennis and John CONDRY in Beaufort, and William In Tyrell, so Richard in Hyde is not far away. We don't know for sure whether these are the Tennessee group, since we know that men of these names were also involved in multiple land deals in East Tennesseee in the 1780-90's. but some people of this period were much more mobile than we might imagine, and it's easy to find records showing that some of these adventurers would park their families a safe distance from the frontier while they travelled back and forth making the required improvements to claim land, returning home to file claims, gather crops, etc. And we know that John and Dennis were involved in the Robertson-Donelson expedition to acquire land in Transylvania (later Kentucky) and Nashborough settlement, and that those expeditions began from North Carolina. So until I have proof that they were NOT, I assume that this trio of CONDRYS in the Tidewater are the same men as the East Tennessee trio of Dennis, William, and John.

    Which is your line, David? Mine is through Cason’s and Elizabeth’s son C.C. and Eliza WEBB>George Washington and Eliza Ann KEATHLEY>Herschel and Lela PITMAN. I would love to compare info.

    Hello Again, Elizabeth shows up in Beaufort/Hyde as a Condry. We suspect that she is a descendent of Dennis, who was an Irish/Manx sea captain. Into America in Massachusetts and then possibly into NC Tidewater. I have a female about her age living in Richard and Sarah's house in 1806. We have a lot of details on this family and it appears that there were two branches, one from the Mass area and one from VA. Both very early into America.

    There is also a possibility of two other older possibilities for parenting, that we have not been able to trace, one a Michael who appears in Salisbury in NC. No records after 1760s and a John, early 1700s twin of a Catherine from Lancaster/Northumberland Co.,VA.

    No records have been found to date for these two known men from the original Dennis and Alice pairing early 1700s.

    Keep in Touch. Rawleigh Condra Fjeld

    Hello, Cousin, Well we have just begun to unravel the N.C. early Condrys. There was a Michael and Richard mid 1700s in N.C. and many later cousins. Also, a Claiborne from very early times. We have most of the Va and Tn and Ky Condrys sorted through, but the early N.C. group has yet to be sorted. We are gathering all tid bits from N.C. Condrys in order to begin matching them. The Condrys came to America mid 1600s to 1670s in Lancaster, Cty Va and there is much info on them from heavy research for the last 15 years.

    I will put your notes with the work and maybe at this years reunion someone will be able to add to it. Best Rawleigh Condra Fjeld

    John's signature, by the way, can be seen on the website of the TN state archives. John also appears in this record:
    US GenWeb Archives, 11/2/99
    Beaufort County Militia, 1781
    NC Division of Archives and History, Raleigh, NC.
    Contributed by Lida A. Overton and transcribed by Elizabeth Ross
    "A List of the Several Divisions of Affective Men in the Beaufort
    Regiment of Militia Made the 20th of April 1781
    No. 3
    John Condry
    George Condry
    Returned by William Brown, Colo.
    of the Beaufort Militia"

    The presence of another Condry in Beaufort--George Condry--complicates the possibilities. If all these guys were brothers or cousins, then the Dennis of Barbour Co, AL could be the son of almost any of them.

    DAR Unveils John Knowles Monument

    as printed in the Sparta Expositor, Thursday, September 11, 1969

    Contributed by Jane Hembree Crowley

    ....God shed his grace on thee, and crowned they good, with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea......

    Thus America was praised, and one who helped gain liberty for this foundling nation almost 200 years ago was honored.

    The local chapter of the Daughters of American Revolution unveiled a monument at the grave of pioneer White Countian John Knowles at Mr. Pisgah Cemetery Sunday.

    Knowles, a revolutionary soldier, came to White County from Virginia, in the early 1800s, settling in the Mr. Pisgah neighborhood--the site of his home being just behind the present church and cemetery. He is the ancestor of the Knowles clan in White County--and possibly has more descendants in this county than any other man.

    Among those taking part in the ceremony were Regent Mrs. Bob Sorrell, Mrs. Lela Taylor, Miss Gertrude Saylors, Mrs. Olivia Knowles Young, Willard Hudson, Jerry Jared, C.L. Fisher, Jack Wright and Freeman Ward, who accepted the monument on behalf of the descendants.

    Some one hundred persons gather under the cedar trees in the cemetery for the ceremony, and blended their voices in the singing of "America" to open the dedication.

    Miss Saylors, a descendant of Mr. Knowles , read the history of John W. Knowles, adding a bit about the present day family. Her address follows:

    John W. Knowles was born July 4th, 1749, in the Echochel parish of Autrim County, in the town of Belemenah, Ireland. He married Mollie (surname unknown) in Ireland. Although he was Irish, it is said he was not a big "talker".

    As a young man he took part in one of Ireland's Rebellions. The British Army crushed this rebellion and sentenced some of the leaders to hang...John Knowles was one of them. Before the British could execute him, his sister tied bed sheets together and lowered him from an upper story of the jail. He never saw his sister again.

    He and Mollie, his wife, and their two little sons, escaped the country and crossed the sea to our American Colonies. He was living in Pennsylvania when we Americans rebelled against British Rule in this country. John Knowles volunteered for 12 months tour of duty in the American cause, 1775.

    The first year he served as private: providing beef cattle for the soldiers. The second year, he served as a sergeant, guarding the Carlisle Barracks, for 12 months. Except, for this one year of guard duty, he was directed to provide beef cattle for the soldiers and forage for the army horses.

    When he would start these cattle to slaughter at headquarters, for the soldiers, he routed the cattle by his home, near Shippenburg, PA, so he could call by to see his wife and one child. (one child must have died after they reached America.)

    John W. Knowles reenlisted each year for 12 month tours of duty. ..in all, he served about six years or, until Cornwallis surrendered. Among several things John Knowles stated under oath, was that he had seen General George Washington, and General Green--he saw, them, he said, but had no personal acquaintance with them.

    Following the American Revolution he moved to Augusta County, VA. There, his daughter, Elizabeth , married Archibald McDaniel, 1795. Archibald, was also a veteran of the Revolution. He and Elizabeth moved to Tennessee. When Archibald became ill to die, he left it to John Knowles to select a place to bury him. The rectangular spot, encased by large stones, flush with the ground, (in Mt. Pisgah Cemetery) was Knowles' choice. ..It was on Knowles' own farm. McDaniel was buried in 1808 and his is said to be the first grave in what became the large Mr. Pisgah Cemetery.

    From Augusta County, VA, John Knowles moved to Amhurst County, and finally to Pendleton County, from which he moved to Tennessee to the place just across the hedgerow east of the cemetery. A large Buncombe apple tree-perhaps a second generation sprout from an original Buncombe apple tree, set out, no doubt by Knowles himself, may be seen at the old home place. The last of the old log house has not been gone too long.

    As to the dispute regarding John Knowles or W. W. Phillips being the first sheriff of White County: (many old times say they always heard that John Knowles was the first sheriff) Monroe Seals , who married into the David Goodwin family....(David, in another capacity, being one of White County's first officials) and of necessity, crossing paths with whomever the fist sheriff had been: Seals , author of "White County History" said, Knowles, not W.W. Phillips was the first sheriff......Mrs. Mary Mitchell says, "Phillips' name, as first sheriff, is on the books. Mrs. McDowell Blankenship , author of "The Uneven Yoke", states that John Knowles was appointed "deputy" sheriff of White County in 1807. This word "deputy" may be the solution to the dispute.

    Mollie Knowles, wife of John W. died about 1821 and according to custom was buried in their private family plot, that became the large public Mr. Pisgah Cemetery. About 1822, their son Isaac, died in North Carolina, leaving his little son, William , an orphan.

    "Grandpa" Knowles, about 73 at the time, mounted his big gray horse, (10 hands high) and headed for North Carolina to pick up this little orphan. (A ride of some 600 miles.) He remained in North Carolina about a year.

    In the meantime, his sons John K. Knowles and wife Sarah, John Rascoe and wife, Patsy, Christopher Swindle and wife, Mary Ann, having listened to his praise of Tennessee, had decided to return with him to make new homes for themselves in Tennessee. This was 1823.

    It was the big gray horse with little William riding behind "Grandpa", that was plunged into strange rivers to measure the depths and try for a ford, before the oxen teams with the loaded wagons, enroute to Tennessee, were risked in those waters. The John Knowles family and the John Rascoe family became devoted to each other.

    For the fast-stepping big gray hourse's fourth and last trip to North Carolina, he was borrowed and ridden by John Rascoe, on account of a Rascoe death in North Carolina.

    Toward the very end of John Knowles' life, as his vigor waned and he became a bed patient, John Rascoes' wife, Pasty, spent much time at his bedside. He died in his sleep, with a smile on his bearded face, March 21, 1836, age 80. He was buried beside his wife, Mollie, in what became Mr. Pisgah Cemetery.

    The War Department in 1969 issued a monument for his grave.

    A list of John and Mollie's children:

    1. John Knowles married a Hutson:

    2. Elizabeth married Archibald McDaniel;

    3. William (John W's son, not his grandson, William) married a Womack:

    4. Sarah Knowles married Matthias Hutson (descendants) Willard Hudson, Gertrude Saylors and Charlie Fisher and others;

    5. Elinor (Ellender) Knowles, first husband, Issiah Hutson (Issiah killed in his north chimney corner, as he tried to prevent Yankee soldiers taking his stallion. Farm now owned by Buck Jernigan):

    6. Mary (Polly) Knowles married a Badger (descendants Kate Badger of McMinnville);

    7. Isaac Knowles married ??, father of grandson, William,

    8. James Knowles married a Harris (descendants) Ed Knowles: The Jareds of Will Knowles, Freeman Wards ; family, Clay Cashdollar and others.

    Since this article was written in 1969, some discrepancies have been found regarding the children of John Knowles. Please read the note located here.

    John Knowles (cont.)

    Listed below are some discrepancies between the 1969 article from the Sparta Expositor, and two primary sources on John Knowles: The Other Bunch by Sharon B. Almas Swindell, and the non-published but well documented work by Harold R. Wallace (now deceased) called The Descendants of John Knowles.

    If you can provide any information or documentation on the issues below, please contact Jane Hembree Crowley, who is researching these discrepancies.


    The areas needing documentation are:

    1. Spouse of Mary "Polly" Knowles. Wallace's documented work says the spouse was Stephen K. Charles and lists descendants. The article and the Swindell book say her spouse was a Badger but that info is not documented. Was Mary married to both men? Or is one incorrect?

    2. Documentation is needed for the son Joseph, not listed in the article.

    3. Documentation is needed for the son Isaac listed in the article.

    4. William Knowles married # 1. Swindell and #2 Denton, not a Womack as listed in the article?

    5. John II married Mahala Hardin not Hutson? Hardin not listed in either source but appears in LDS records. Both book sources above only list her given name.

    While looking on the internet tonight, I was sorry to see that so much confusion exists about the marriage of John W. Knowles, b. 1749 and progenitor of the White County, TN Knowles family. Some show him marrying in Ireland and some show him marrying in PA.

    One thing is clear from PRIMARY sources in PA, that "some" John Knowles married a Hannah Preston in PA and not in Ireland. IF you believe that the White Co. John Knowles married Hannah Preston, then it follows that you have to believe that he married in PA. It would be totally incorrect to say that John Knowles married Hannah Preston in Ireland. The marriage is of RECORD in PA.

    I personally do not know if our John married in Ireland or in PA, but IF John Knowles of White County history did marry Hannah Preston, he married her in PA on March 21, 1770. I hope everyone can agree and correct any records you may have to show that the 1770 marriage occured in PA and NOT in Ireland. The marriage record can be obtained from PA.

    The second point is this: Did the John Knowles born in 1749 marry Hannah Preston or did some other John Knowles marry her? Does anyone have proof on this? There were other John Knowles in PA at the time.

    Additionally it is well-known locally in White Co., TN that John's wife was called Mollie. So...was this Mollie really named Mary (Mollie) Hannah Preston or was Mollie a totally different person from Hannah Preston?

    Those who find this of interest need to clarify these points if possible by research of marriage and immigration records to see if anyone came with John from Ireland and to determine which John Knowles Hannah Preston married.

    Will anyone volunteer to pursue either of these issues or suggest HOW to research these points? Are immigration records available from Ireland for the time period BEFORE 1770? Has anyone searched for a Hannah (Preston) Knowles in PA or other areas during the same time period that Mollie was living with John in White County, TN?

    It seems to me that these issues need to be clarified by serious Knowles researchers. Please clarify the location of the 1770 marriage information to any of your Knowles correspondents as well to help clear up that info.

  1. 64.  John Swindell was born 0___ 1648, (Northampton County, Virginia) (son of Thomas Swindell, An Immigrant and unnamed spouse).

    Notes:

    Swindle Family compiled by Bill Brackett

    The Swindle name is believed to be English. It is said to mean "one who came from Swindale" a chapelry in the parish of Shap in northern England’s county of Westmoreland. The original meaning of the name is thought to be derived from a dale or dell where swine were raised or perhaps a haunt of wild boars.

    The family claims a coat of arms, which has a boar’s head and two crossed blue swords with gold hilts on a silver shield.

    In records I have seen that there was a William Swindell who was born before 1584 in England and was killed in an Indian massacre in Virginia. He died on Captain Berkley's plantation about 60 miles from Jamestown, Virginia in 1624. His last named is spelled Swandal in these records.

    In Cheshire, England on 08 Oct 1578 a William Swyndles married Margery Barber. On 10 Dec 1598 in Cheshire, England a William Swindles married Izabell Hiberte. On 29 May 1610 in Cheshire England a William Swindles married Elizabeth Mallbone.

    There are several others by this name in Cheshire. William Swindles and Isabell Hiberte had sons, Thomas Swindle and Daniel Swindle.

    In a muster taken 30 Jan 1624 there is a Thomas Swinhow (Swindell) who was reported as having arrived on the "Diana" and living in the main of the Corporation of James City, Virginia.

    There was a Thomas Swindell who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654. It has been indicated that Thomas Swindell moved to the eastern shore of Virginia.

    There was also a Daniel Swindell in this same area as mentioned as tithables in that county in 1666.

    Thomas Swindell had a son named John Swindell who married the daughter of George Willis. George Willis gave the couple a cow in 1668. John and ... (Willis) Swindell lived in North Hampton, Virginia and he died in North Carolina 1750.

    Thomas Swindell, who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654, was an indentured servant and John Walton and John Baynol who were Virginian “Planters” paid his transport. John Swindell was still on the eastern shore of Virginia as late as 1700 when he witnessed the will of John Tilney of Nassawaddox.

    In 1702 John Swindell moved into Bath County, North Carolina and in that same year proved headrights to 240 acres. This John Swindell may have been the father to Thomas Swindell.

    In 1729 there was a Thomas Swindell who was a cooper from Beauford Precinct of Bath County North Carolina. Thomas Swindell purchased 100 acres on the north side of the Pamlico River from James Singleton.

    There was a Timothy Swindle in Culpeper County, Virginia in the 1770's. This area of Virginia was settled by Germans, but it is believed that this Timothy Swindle was not of German ancestry. Timothy Swindle married Rebecca Crease (Crees, Crest, Criece, Greys) who was clearly German. Rebecca Crease's family was from Wurttemberg in what was to become Germany. Timothy and Rebecca Swindle had children:

    Sarah Swindle m. Frederick Baumgardner
    Michael Swindle m. Elizabeth Utz
    John Swindle m. Hannah Weaver
    George Swindle m. Hannah Cornelius
    Rebecca Swindle m. John Fray

    It is obvious that the Swindle family came from England possibly as early as 1619. They settled in Virginia, moved into North Carolina by 1702, into Tennessee by 1815 and later into Arkansas by 1860.
    According to research done by Charles H. Swindle and James E. Swindell The Swindle line is as follows:

    John Swindle was born about 1523 in England. John’s wife’s name is unknown. Their son was William Swindle (Swandal) who was born before 1584 in England.

    William Swindle (Swandal) married Isabell Hiberte on 10 Dec 1598 in Macclesfield, St. Michael, Cheshire, England. Isabell was born before 1580 in Cheshire.

    William Swindle (Swandal) was killed in the Indian massacre on Good Friday, 22 Mar 1622 at Berkley’s Plantation 66 miles from James City, Virginia. James City is known today as Jamestown. Isabell died in 1652 in Virginia. William came to the New World about 1619/20. William and Isabell Swindle had at least two sons:

    Thomas Swindle
    Daniel Swindle

    Thomas Swindle was born about 1604, lived in North Hampton, Virginia and died about 1669 in Rappanock, Richmond County, Virginia. Thomas’s wife’s name is unknown but she was born about 1610 in Rappanock and died about 1670 in Virginia. Thomas Swindle’s known children were:

    Timothy Swindle born between 1646-51 and died in 1683 in Virginia
    John Swindle b, 1648 in North Hampton, Virginia.
    Daniel Swindle born about 1648. Timothy Swindle married a lady named Sarah who was born in England. Sarah’s last name is not known. Timothy and Sarah’s son was John Swindle who was born 20 Mar 1675/76 in Rappanock, Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia.
    John Swindle married Mary McPherson, the daughter of William McPherson, about 1696 in Lower Norfolk, Currtuck County, Virginia. John died before 1772 in Hyde County, North Carolina. Mary Swindle died between 1746 and 1751. Some of their sons were:
    Timothy Swindle married Rebecca Crees
    John Swindle b. 1723 in Hyde County, N. C.
    Caleb Swindle
    Parker Swindle b. abt 1730 in Hyde County
    Josiah Swindle b. 1732 in Hyde County
    William Swindle b. 1735 in Hyde County
    Zedekiah Swindle b. 04 Apr 1737

    Josiah Swindle was born about 1732 in Albermarie, Hyde County, North Carolina. Josiah was a carpenter by trade. He signed his will on 07May 1804. His estate was probated in 1806. He left mechanic tools equally divided among sons, furniture to daughters and most of his estate to his wife, Ester. Josiah Swindle was married at least three times. The name of his first wife is not known but they had a son:

    Caleb Swindle

    Josiah Swindle married 2nd Sarah ... . They had sons:

    Samuel Swindle
    Abraham Swindle
    Josiah Swindle married 3rd Ester Balance. They had children:

    Willis Swindle
    Marget Swindle b. 1764 in Hyde County
    Pricilla Swindle
    Delilah Swindle
    Ann Swindle
    Elizabeth Swindle

    Samuel Swindle was born about 1754 in Hyde County, North Carolina. He died about 1807 in the same county. Samuel is believed to have moved to Bladean County, North Carolina from Hyde County in the late 1700's. Samuel Swindle married a lady named Mary. Mary’s last name is not known. Samuel and Mary Swindle had children:

    Willis Swindle
    Samuel Swindle

    James Swindle was born about 1777 in North Carolina. He died in 1850 in Tennessee. James Swindle married Mary Howe, the daughter of Job Howe Jr.. They were married on 08 Mar 1808 in North Carolina. Mary Swindle died in Tennessee. Mary Swindle died before 25 Jan 1825 as her estate was probated on that date. James and Mary Swindle had children:

    Thomas Swindle
    Seth Swindle b. abt. 1810
    William E. Swindle
    Nathan Swindle b. abt 1813

    Jena Green Hopwood wrote a family history in 1987 called "The Swineherders". It contains photocopies of documents, photos and detailed information about the following:

    The Camden Chronicle, one of the early newspapers of Benton County, Tennessee reported Thomas’s death on 10 Jun 1904.

    "Thomas Swindle, who had been in bad health for some time, died Sunday at the advanced age of 93 years, 3 months and 20 days, and was the oldest man in the county. Mr. Swindle was born February 9, 1811. He professed religion in July or August, 1843, and joined the Methodist Episcopal church in 1844. In the division to which he belonged, the Methodist Episcopal Church South, he was licensed to exhort somewhere in the date between 1850 and 1860, and was faithful to the trust until his death, being a devoted servant of God for more than sixty years. He was first married to Miriam Anderson on January 15, 1833. To that union there was twelve children, eight of whom lived to be grown and four died in infancy. His second marriage was to Mrs. N.F. Harris on December 7, 1873, who survives him. In 1867, he received the degrees of F. & A.M. at Camden Lodge # 179, of which he died a member. The burial took place at Shiloh Cemetery Tuesday with all the honors of masonry and was attended by a large gathering of friends and relatives."

Swindle volunteered in the Civil War from Arkansas in 1863 under Captain William Black and Colonel Shaver. William A. Swindle was in battles in Missouri and Siloam, Arkansas. In 1864 William A. Swindle returned to Tennessee and lived there until 1911 when he returned to Arkansas to live with his son, Dr. William T. Swindle. He was known as “Uncle Billie” Swindle. William Anderson Swindle is buried in the Siloam Cemetery near Middlebrook, Arkansas. William A. and Angelina Swindle had children:

    William A. Swindle
    Mary Swindle
    Thomas Swindle
    Martha Lewis
    William Lewis
    Artie Swindle
    Elizabeth Smith (mother-in-law)

    William A. Swindle’s military records indicate he was wounded at the battle of Siloam, Arkansas and that he was shot with a "Minnie ball" through the right "rist" joint, breaking these bones and "then into my body on the right side and lodged at skin in back". William died in Randolph County, Arkansas on 26 Jan 1914 and is buried in the churchyard at Siloam near Middlebrook, Arkansas.

    Dr. William Thomas Swindle was born in Benton County, Tennessee on 13 Mar 1854. He died 04 Aug 1924 in Middlebrook, Randolph County, Arkansas. In Benton County, Tennessee he married Vandora Hatley on 11 Dec 1873. Vandora was Victoria Vandora Hatley, the only child of Wyley and Leah (Nowell) Hatley. Vandora Hatley was born 11 Dec 1858 and died in Maynard, Randolph County, Arkansas on 12 Feb 1924. Dr. William T. and Vandora Swindle had ten children:

    Dr. William and Vandora (Hatley) Swindle are buried in the Siloam Cemetery near Middlebrook, Arkansas. Dr. William T. Swindle traveled back and forth between Benton County, Tennessee and Randolph County, Arkansas where he practiced medicine.

    There is an interesting story passed down by Arvena Hambrick Brackett concerning her grandmother Ula Balkus Swindle. Arvena says her grandmother "chewed tobacco and that she would sit on the porch and spit it out into the street". It should be understood that this was a rural area and the street was a dirt path.

    *According to another family historian a family Bible records Ula Balkus Swindle as Uler Balkus Swindle. My mother, her grandaughter, says her name was Ula?
    Ula (Uler) Blakus Swindle married John Francis Rapert in Randolph County, Arkansas. John and Ula (Swindle) Rapert are buried in the Antioch Cemetery near Doniphan, Missouri.

    Their daughter Gussie I. Rapert married Thad Hambrick in Randolph County, Arkansas.
    Their daughter Ula Arvena Hambrick married 2nd Harold Earl Brackett in 1947 in Berrien County, Michigan.
    Their son William Brackett married Jane Hauch in Lakeside, Berrien County, Michigan in 1970.

    A Mary Swindell was named in the will (recorded November Court 1777, Norfolk Co, VA) of a William McPherson as his sister. Other siblings named in this will were brothers

    Andrew,
    Daniel, and
    John.

    I believe, but do not yet have more than circumstantial evidence, that the above-named individuals were the grandchildren (or perhaps great-grandchildren) of the Daniel Mackafarson who left a will recorded in Norfolk Co, VA, in March 1696/97 in which he named as his heirs his sons Daniel and Andrew.

    The following information is related to Tithables in Joseph Looney's Company in Botetourt County, VA in 1783. The list includes: Thomas Middleton, Thomas Middleton, Jr., Jacob Middleton, John Middleton, and Walter Middleton.

    Notes on tithables and taxes in Botetourt County, VA.
    p. 229
    “Tithables” in Virginia were white males over sixteen years of years of age, male and female slaves over sixteen years, bond servants over sixteen. The tax, which was a poll tax, was called a “tithe,” which did not mean one-tenth. This poll tax was laid by the General Assembly for carrying on war, for salaries to certain officials, buildings like state houses, and for general public use, and was collected by the sheriff. Poll tax could be levied by county courts for building courthouses, bridges, roads and other local purposes.”
    pp. 232-233
    “By 1783, the report of tithables had been enlarged to include not only the number of tithables but the number of cattle, horses and slaves owned by each, and a list submitted by Joseph Looney containing that information, shows the names submitted him to be:

    I HAVE THIS IN MY DATA MAYBE IT WILL HELP.

    5. John Swindle, Sr. was born on 3/20/1676 in Rappanock (Farnham Parish),
    Richmond Co., Virginia. He died before 1772 in Hyde Co., North Carolina.
    John married Mary McPherson (daughter of William McPherson Sr.) about 1696
    in Lower Norfolk, Currtuck Co., Virginia. Mary McPherson died between
    3/2/1747 and 9/2/1751. She was born in Virginia (possibly NC or Scotland).
    John Swindle Sr. and Mary McPherson had at least the following children:

    5A. Timothy Swindle that married Rebecca Crees (See 6th Generation below)

    5B. John Swindle, Jr. was born 1723 in Albemaire,Hyde Co NC. He died 1775
    in Hyde Co NC. He married Rebecca Harris that was born 1726 Hyde Co NC
    before 1748.

    5C. Josiah Swindle, Sr. was born 1732 in Albemarie, Hyde Co NC. He married
    Esther Balance (born about 1732-died about 1810 NC) in 1776. Josiah
    Swindle, apparently a carpenter by trade, died about 1806 in Hyde Co NC.

    5D. Caleb Swindle, Sr.

    5E. William Swindle, Sr. was born about 1735 in Hyde Co NC. Died Hyde Co
    NC in 1810. He was married to Dina (Dinah) (unknown) about 1755 in Hyde Co
    NC. Dina was born about 1735 in Hyde Co NC and died about 1810 in NC.

    5F. Zedeklah Swindle was born on 4/4/1737 in Albemarie, Hyde Co NC. He
    died 1795 in NC. He was married to Pheby (unknown) about 1781. Pheby was
    born 1740 and died Albemarie, Hyde Co NC.

    Note: There may have been another child: Parker Swindle, b. 1732,
    Albemarie, Hyde Co., NC; d. abt 1806, Hyde County, NC.


    Notes for JOHN SWINDELL: Ellen Mitchell, researcher in Hyde CO. N.C. indicated that there was no will for John Swindell 1, but there was an Estate Record in Hyde CO. VOl-1 part 1, about 1722. She also indicated that his son Zedekiah's birth record was recorded in Pasquotank Co., N.C. (Pasquotank was a precinct of Albemarle Co, then.)
    Records indicate that John purchased many different farms from 1729-1765 and sold some as well. These usually were from 100 acres to 1000 acres. He must have accumulated about 5,000 acres of land. Much of this land, was of little cost, and some for 'quitrents'.
    1757 Dec. 7 Hyde Co. N.C. : John Swindell, planter, with love and affection to Josiah Swindell, Son, 150 acre plantation in Mattamuskette. Witness Benjamin Mason and Stephen Denning.

    Hello Dave,

    I enjoyed visiting with you and reading your files. I offer the following information on Caleb which prompted my posting on the genforum to begin with:

    from the book entitled: " Hyde County NC Court Minutes and Orphans Book, Book II."

    Registration of Deeds by John Swindall to his sons Dec. 1757-Mar 1758 Quarter Sessions Page 11.

    John Swindall to his son Caleb Swindall for 240 acres
    John Swindall to his son Zedekiah Swindall for 100 acres
    John Swindall to his son Josiah Swindall for 150 acres
    John Swindall to his son William Swindall for 150 acres
    John Swindall to William Turner for 160 acres (could this be a son-in-law?)

    Court Session 1763 Page (97)-49:

    "3 Deeds from John Swindall, one to Caleb Swindall for 150 acres of Land and One to Joseph Swindall Son o(sic) Caleb Swindall for 65 acres of land, the other to Zedekiah Swindall for 200 acres of land Exhibited into Court and acknowledged by the said John Swindall to be by him duely Executd. They are Ordered to be Registered."

    (160)-25 August Term 1785:
    On motion John Swindal is Appointed by the court Guardien to William Swindal Orphan of William Swindal Decd. and Entered into bond in the sum of fifty pounds David Spencer and William Spencer his Securitys ordered that Letters of Tuition Issue.

    My Note: Caleb Swindall had a son named Joseph?
    From the book entitled " (OLD) Rappahannock County Orders 1689-1692", p.195 Rappahannock County Court 7th of January 1690/1:

    -Ordered that James Samford take in to his Custody all & singular the Estate of TIMO. SWINDALL late deced on behalfe & for the use of the Orphans of the sd SWINDALL and that he returne an act. thereof under his hands in writing to the next Court held for this County.

    In another entry (which I can't locate at the moment) John Swindall appeared in court to ask that he be released from James Samford. Court refused the request.

    From the book entitled "The Registers of North Farnham Parish 1663-1814 and Lunenburg Parrish 1783-1800 Richmond County, Virginia" the following birth is recorded:

    Swindall, John son of Timothy and Sarah Swindall, 20 March 1676

    My Note: appears that Timothy died when John was about 14 yrs of age. John is the only Swindall who's birth is recorded in this book but the above order uses the plural term "orphans".

    Yes it's me, and I'm still looking! In the book entitled "Hyde County Court Minutes and Orphans Book 1756-1785 Book II" I find the following entry:

    1763 Term (97)-49
    "3 Deeds from John Swindall, one to Caleb SWINDALL for 150 Acres of Land and One to Joseph SWINDALL Son o(sic) Caleb SWINDALL for sixtyfive Acres of Land, the other to Zedeciah SWINDALL for 200 Acres of Land Exhibited into Court and acknowledged by the said John SWINDALL to be by him Duely Executd. they are Ordered to be Registered."
    END
    --------------
    This indicates that Caleb had a son named Joseph. Would it also indicate that he had a wife before Keziah?
    -------------
    In the same book is listed another entry:

    Dec. 1757-Mar. 1758 Term

    (12)-195
    Deed from John SWINDALL to his Son Caleb Swindall for 240 acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his Son Zedekiah Swindall for 100 acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his son Josiah Swindall for 150 acres of land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to his son William Swindall for 150 Acres of Land, etc.
    Deed from John Swindall to William Turner for 160 Acres of Land, etc.
    Deeds Ordered to be Registered. (no mention of where the land was located)
    END
    ---------------
    Could William Turner be a son-in-law?
    I know there is a John Swindall Jr. but he was not listed in this entry.

    Can anyone shed light on the son Joseph, of Caleb or on the William Turner who received land from John Swindall?
    Thanks, Esther

    Notes:

    Notes for THOMAS SWINDELL: Thomas SWINDLE was born in 1604 in North Hampton, Virginia. He died about 1669 in Rappanoch, Richmond Co., Virginia. from Richard Payne Spencer's research.......Mormon records. HIGH TIDES Historical Society editors vol. 8 no. 2 Hyde Co., NC. states that the first Swindell to arrive in the Virginia Colony, was Thomas Swinhow. In a muster taken 30 Jan. 1624, he is reported as having arrived on the "Diana" and living in the Maine of the Corporation of James City.

    In a circa 1626 listing of the Corporation of Charles City, Thomas (Swindle) Swinhow held 300 acres by patent. He was later in 1638, listed as 'kilt by Indians . However, a Thomas Swindell was one of 78 people who arrived safely in Westmorland County, VA. in 1654. An indentured servant, he was transported by John Walton and John Baynal, VA. planters.

    Research indicates that Thomas Swindell moved across the bay to North Hampton County on the Eastern shore of VA. He and a Daniel Swindell were related, possibly as Father and Son, and both are mentioned as tiltable in that county in 1666.

    Thomas Swindell had a son, John Swindell, who married the daughter of George Willis. Old North Hampton County, VA. records show that George Willis gave the couple a cow in 1668, a substantial gift for that time period.

    A Thomas Swindell was one of 78 people who arrived safely in Westmorland County, VA. in 1654. An indentured servant, he was transported by John Walton and John Baynal, VA. planters; 1729 Thomas Swindell, Cooper, of Beaufort Precinct, Bath Co. N.C. purchased 100 acres on the north side of the Pamlico River from James Singleton........

    Check out the Swindell of Cheshire County, England as there is a Hyde twp there containing several Swindells of similar names....... He had over 300 acres by patent; 02/25/1660 Thomas Swindle was in Northhampton, Va and was granted 400 acres of land. (Virginia Land Records, p. 379)

    The Swindle name is believed to be English. It is said to mean "one who came from Swindale" a chapelry in the parish of Shap in northern England’s county of Westmoreland. The original meaning of the name is thought to be derived from a dale or dell where swine were raised or perhaps a haunt of wild boars.

    The family claims a coat of arms, which has a boar’s head and two crossed blue swords with gold hilts on a silver shield.

    In records I have seen that there was a William Swindell who was born before 1584 in England and was killed in an Indian massacre in Virginia. He died on Captain Berkley's plantation about 60 miles from Jamestown, Virginia in 1624. His last named is spelled Swandal in these records.

    In Cheshire, England on 08 Oct 1578 a William Swyndles married Margery Barber. On 10 Dec 1598 in Cheshire, England a William Swindles married Izabell Hiberte. On 29 May 1610 in Cheshire England a William Swindles married Elizabeth Mallbone. There are several others by this name in Cheshire. William Swindles and Isabell Hiberte had sons, Thomas Swindle and Daniel Swindle.

    In a muster taken 30 Jan 1624 there is a Thomas Swinhow (Swindell) who was reported as having arrived on the "Diana" and living in the main of the Corporation of James City, Virginia. There was a Thomas Swindell who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654. It has been indicated that Thomas Swindell moved to the eastern shore of Virginia. There was also a Daniel Swindell in this same area as mentioned as tithables in that county in 1666. Thomas Swindell had a son named John Swindell who married the daughter of George Willis. George Willis gave the couple a cow in 1668. John and ... (Willis) Swindell lived in North Hampton, Virginia and he died in North Carolina 1750. Thomas Swindell, who arrived in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1654, was an indentured servant and John Walton and John Baynol who were Virginian “Planters” paid his transport. John Swindell was still on the eastern shore of Virginia as late as 1700 when he witnessed the will of John Tilney of Nassawaddox.

    In 1702 John Swindell moved into Bath County, North Carolina and in that same year proved headrights to 240 acres. This John Swindell may have been the father to Thomas Swindell. In 1729 there was a Thomas Swindell who was a cooper from Beauford Precinct of Bath County North Carolina. Thomas Swindell purchased 100 acres on the north side of the Pamlico River from James Singleton.

    There was a Timothy Swindle in Culpeper County, Virginia in the 1770's. This area of Virginia was settled by Germans, but it is believed that this Timothy Swindle was not of German ancestry. Timothy Swindle married Rebecca Crease (Crees, Crest, Criece, Greys) who was clearly German. Rebecca Crease's family was from Wurttemberg in what was to become Germany. Timothy and Rebecca Swindle had children:

    Sarah Swindle m. Frederick Baumgardner
    Michael Swindle m. Elizabeth Utz
    John Swindle m. Hannah Weaver
    George Swindle m. Hannah Cornelius
    Rebecca Swindle m. John Fray

    It is obvious that the Swindle family came from England possibly as early as 1619. They settled in Virginia, moved into North Carolina by 1702, into Tennessee by 1815 and later into Arkansas by 1860.

    Dr. William Thomas Swindle was born in Benton County, Tennessee on 13 Mar 1854. He died 04 Aug 1924 in Middlebrook, Randolph County, Arkansas. In Benton County, Tennessee he married Vandora Hatley on 11 Dec 1873. Vandora was Victoria Vandora Hatley, the only child of Wyley and Leah (Nowell) Hatley. Vandora Hatley was born 11 Dec 1858 and died in Maynard, Randolph County, Arkansas on 12 Feb 1924. Dr. William T. and Vandora Swindle had ten children:

    Nancy Elizabeth Swindle m. Daniel Odom

    Uler or Ula Balkus Swindle m. John Francis Rapert
    Arcus Eli Swindle m. Effie Jones

    Pizoler Belle Swindle m. Felix Johnson
    Dovie Dee Swindle m. Frank Luter

    Dr. William and Vandora (Hatley) Swindle are buried in the Siloam Cemetery near Middlebrook, Arkansas. Dr. William T. Swindle traveled back and forth between Benton County, Tennessee and Randolph County, Arkansas where he practiced medicine.

    There is an interesting story passed down by Arvena Hambrick Brackett concerning her grandmother Ula Balkus Swindle. Arvena says her grandmother "chewed tobacco and that she would sit on the porch and spit it out into the street". It should be understood that this was a rural area and the street was a dirt path.

    *According to another family historian a family Bible records Ula Balkus Swindle as Uler Balkus Swindle. My mother, her grandaughter, says her name was Ula?
    Ula (Uler) Blakus Swindle married John Francis Rapert in Randolph County, Arkansas. John and Ula (Swindle) Rapert are buried in the Antioch Cemetery near Doniphan, Missouri.

    Their daughter Gussie I. Rapert married Thad Hambrick in Randolph County, Arkansas.
    Their daughter Ula Arvena Hambrick married 2nd Harold Earl Brackett in 1947 in Berrien County, Michigan.
    Their son William Brackett married Jane Hauch in Lakeside, Berrien County, Michigan in 1970.

    In Reply to: Mary,William McPherson - VA,NC -1690 by Dan Lindsted of 2174


    A Mary Swindell was named in the will (recorded November Court 1777, Norfolk Co, VA) of a William McPherson as his sister. Other siblings named in this will were brothers

    Andrew,
    Daniel, and
    John.

    I believe, but do not yet have more than circumstantial evidence, that the above-named individuals were the grandchildren (or perhaps great-grandchildren) of the Daniel Mackafarson who left a will recorded in Norfolk Co, VA, in March 1696/97 in which he named as his heirs his sons Daniel and Andrew.

    The following information is related to Tithables in Joseph Looney's Company in Botetourt County, VA in 1783. The list includes: Thomas Middleton, Thomas Middleton, Jr., Jacob Middleton, John Middleton, and Walter Middleton.


    Stoner, Robert Douthat. A Seed-Bed of the Republic: A Study of the Pioneers of the Upper (Southern) Valley of Virginia. Roanoke, VA: Roanoke Historical Society, 1962.

    Notes on tithables and taxes in Botetourt County, VA.
    p. 229
    “Tithables” in Virginia were white males over sixteen years of years of age, male and female slaves over sixteen years, bond servants over sixteen. The tax, which was a poll tax, was called a “tithe,” which did not mean one-tenth. This poll tax was laid by the General Assembly for carrying on war, for salaries to certain officials, buildings like state houses, and for general public use, and was collected by the sheriff. Poll tax could be levied by county courts for building courthouses, bridges, roads and other local purposes.”
    pp. 232-233
    “By 1783, the report of tithables had been enlarged to include not only the number of tithables but the number of cattle, horses and slaves owned by each, and a list submitted by Joseph Looney containing that information, shows the names submitted him to be:

    Joseph Luney Thomas Aken
