She died in the faith, as she had for a number of years been a faithful member of the Baptist church, and while she is dead and her body confimed to the tomb, she yet speaketh, "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord," yea sayeth the Spirit, they shall rest from their labors and their works shall follow them. She was the mother of a large family of children who are all grown. Some of them are in Texas and will in sadness listen to the story of the death of mother."

    Religion:
    Primitive Baptists, are also known as Hard Shell Baptists, Anti-Mission Baptists, or Old School Baptists. The adjective "Primitive" in the name has the sense of "original".

    Reported in 1920...

    BAPTISTS, Two-Seed-in-the-Spirit, had their origin in the preaching and ultra-Calvinistic doctrines of Daniel Parker, a Baptist elder and preacher of Tennessee. Parker, who was ordained in 1806 in Tennessee became one of the strongest opponents of the organized work of the Church. In 1817 he moved to Illinois, where he continued his opposition to the work and organization of the regular Church for 19 years. Later he went to Texas. In various pamphlets (1826-29) Parker made public some very peculiar theories he held concerning the introduction and perpetuation of evil in the human race. According to these beliefs, God, when He created Adam and Eve, infused into them particles of Himself, thus making them altogether good; the devil corrupted them by infusing into them particles of himelf. Eve, by predestination, brought forth a certain number of good and a certain number of bad offsprings; and all her daughters after her were predestined to do likewise. The atonement, according to Parker, applies only to those born of the good seed, those born of the bad being absolutely lost. This Baptist sect is uncompromisingly opposed to "all human institutions." They are found in 21 States and have nearly 500 churches and nearly 13,000 members.

    4 slaves: F52, M30, M26, F23

    The 52 yr. old I believe was Jude Byars and the 23 yr. old Nancy Byars her daughter.

    They last appear in 1880, Jude 72 and Nancy 39 in the home of Harrel's daughter Mary Byars Fuston.

    More on Thomas, blog written by Robert Burke...

    1) The children of Thomas/Louvisa were Lucy, Anderson, Abner, Abraham, James, William, and George, in more or less that order. There was no Thomas or Lewis that I know of. The Thomas or Lewis attributed as a son of Thomas/Louvisa was actually Thomas Womack, son of William Womack (son of Isham) & Lucy Womack (dau of Thomas/Louvisa). More on that below.

    People ask me how I "know" that George Womack was a son. No one knows for sure, because there aren't any probate or deed or Bible records that list the children of Thomas/Louvisa. However, from the letter of Francis Marion Womack, dated 1905, (http:// www.womacknet.com/features/fmwletter.html ), we know that Lucy and Abner were children.

    Captain James Jackson Womack wrote a sketch of the Womack family circa 1909 (http://www.womacknet.com/sources/ wgv4n1.html ) in which he lists 5 brothers as the children of Thomas Womack and Louvisa Rice: Anderson, Abner, William, James and George.

    We can add Abraham Womack as a son as well, since he is the right age to be a sibling of the other 5, he appears in records with them, and Thomas's father was Abraham Womack. In fact, all 6 sons of Louvisa were with her in the 1790 census of Rutherford Co, NC. Abner must have married around the time of the census, because he is listed a second time as head of household in Spartanburg Co, SC, which is adjacent to Rutherford.

    2) Francis Marion Womack's letter had just a little to say about his uncle Thomas Womack: "Thomas Womack had a wife and two children. He died. I never knew what became of his wife and children." Rev Christenberry Lee (http://rebgen.blogspot.com/2010/02/womack-blanton- reminiscences-of.html ) described a "Lewis Womack", son of Anderson, who married Manima Padgett and had children Isham and Leah, before dying young.

    Rutherford Co, NC court records indicate Minimy Womack was given letter of administration on the estate of Thomas Womack, deceased, in July 1809. Alanson Padgett (male) was the bondsman of Leah Womack's marriage to Sampson McDaniel. Christenberry Lee made several mistakes, such as saying Sarah Womack, wife of Jeremiah Blanton, was the daughter of Thomas Womack [and Louvisa Rice], when she in fact was the daughter of William Womack and Lucy Womack, as stated in Francis Marion Womack's letter. "Lewis Womack" was actually Thomas Womack, and he was not the son of Anderson Womack, but rather of William Womack and Lucy Womack. He had a wife and two children, and then died, exactly as Francis Marion Womack described; Francis never knew what became of them because they stayed in NC when most of the rest of this family moved to TN, and later AL.

    3) David Womack who married Esther Tanner in Rutherford Co, NC was almost certainly a grandson of Thomas/Louvisa. He was probably the son of William/Lucy, and Francis Marion Womack forgot about him when he listed his uncles and aunts. He might have been Anderson's son, but the census records don't seem to fit. He was in the same military company in the War of 1812 as Thomas Womack, who was certainly Anderson's son. David's daughter Louisa E Womack, married Squire Rutherford Davis on 23 Nov 1832 in Union Co, KY. In 1829, Louisa Womack had been a buyer at her fathers estate sale in Union Co, KY. See the bio of Andrew Jackson Davis (http:// freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~bryant/obits/ Davis_Andrew_Jackson.html). It states that Squire R Davis was born in Warren Co, TN, where of course, the majority of thedescendants of Thomas/Louvisa wound up. Squire R Davis was likely related to the big Davis clan that intermarried with Anderson Womack's kids.

    Thomas married Louvisa Rice 0___ 1760, Halifax County, Virginia. Louvisa (daughter of John Rice and Mary Finney) was born 0___ 1745, Halifax County, Virginia; died 1828-1830, Rutherford County, North Carolina. [Group Sheet]


  4. 37.  Louvisa Rice was born 0___ 1745, Halifax County, Virginia (daughter of John Rice and Mary Finney); died 1828-1830, Rutherford County, North Carolina.

    Well Fay, it does get interesting. Here is what I have:
    In the US Census of 1790 Louvisa is listed in Rutherford County N.C. as a 'Head of Family' with 2 males over 16 years (Abraham & Abner) and 4 males under 16 (William, James, Thomas Jr & David). Lucy (the eldest child and only girl) is not listed as part of this family during this census because she was married a distant cousin - William Womack- in the late 1780's

    In the 1800 Census, Louvisa is still listed in Rutherford County N.C., but with only 1 male 26-45yrs(probably Thomas Jr) and 1 male 16-25 yrs (David). Louvisa is listed as 'over 45' when in fact she is probably over 50. By the time her youngest son David marries in 1809, she is about 60 yrs old.

    At the time of David's death in 1828, it appears the Louvisa(about 85 yrears old) is still living with David and Esther, because she is named as purchaser of some property at the sale to settle his estate.
    In the 1830 census, no mention is found of her, therefore it is assumed that she died sometime between late 1828 and 1830. It is unknown exactly where she died; possibilities include Ky , Illinois, Missouri, and possibly Iowa.

    Recent dna results prove that James (Henry) Byars of Hanover Co, VA is NOT the ancestor of Nathan b 1749, William who married Sarah Doggett or William who married Elizabeth Bedford. DNA from a proven descendant of James through his documented son Capt John, matches with dna from a descendant of the Byars who went from Granville Co into West Tennessee. NO CONNECTION to old Nathan, William or William

    Majorie Stewart Tucker writes,

    Nathan Byars was born in 1749, Granville Co., NC, d. Aug. 18, 1846, Spartanburg District, SC. He m.1st. after 1772 (date of Burgess Harrelson's will), Drucilla Harrelson, b. ca 1743-50, d. probably ca 1818, dau. of Burgess Harrelson and wife, Elizabeth.

    The will of Burgess Harrelson was made Oct. 9, 1772, in Orange Co., NC. In it he named his daughter, Drucilla Harrelson and gave her two hundred acres of land, indicating that Drucilla was not married when the will was written.

    Nathan Byars is buried in the Cowpens National Park, Cherokee County, SC. His tombstone reads "In Memory of Nathan Byars Sen. who died Aug. 18, 1846 in his 97th year." Note - Cherokee Co., SC was formed 1897 from Union, York, and Spartanburg Counties.

    Nathan Byars served as a Private from North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. On May 22, 1778, he took the State Oath of Allegiance according to the Acts of the Assembly passed at New Bern the 15th day of November, 1777, in the second year of the Independence of the State of North Carolina, being one of seventy- seven persons in the Island Creek District so doing. Among this number was also one William Byars, who may have been his brother.

    While a resident of Caswell County, North Carolina, Nathan Byars was drafted three times and served three months each tour. He then volunteered a tour of three months and went south against the Indians. He was stationed principally at Hillsborough, NC. On Dec. 31, 1844, at the advanced age of ninety-five years, when he applied for his Military Pension, Nathan was unable to remember the exact date of his birth or the exact dates of his service.

    He did remember that his father told him that he was a small boy at the time of Gen. Braddock's defeat (1755, during the French and Indian War). He recollected that he was in the service at the time the battle was fought at the Eutaw Springs (Sept. 1781) and at King's Mountain (1780) and at the time of Gates' defeat (Aug. 16, 1780, Camden, SC), though he did not participate in these battles.

    Nathan's application for pension was supported by an affidavit submitted by Jesse and Rev. Drury, two sons of his neighbor, Richard Scruggs. His application was also supported by Philip Davis and Sarah (Davis) Wadkins, who made oath that their brother, Jacob Davis, was drafted at the same time and that they served the tour together. Sarah Davis was married to William Watkins, whose brother, Daniel Watkins, Sr. married Nathan's daughter, Elizabeth Byars. She stated that she was raised and lived in NC until she was twelve or fourteen years of age and that she lived near Nathan Byars.

    The following is a copy of the interrogation of Nathan Byars when he applied for his Military Pension, Dec. 31, 1844:

    his mark Nathan Byars

    R. Bowdin, Judge of the Court of Chancery

    Nathan Byars engaged in many land transactions, both buying and selling in Granville Co., NC from 1780 through 1784, yet in Caswell Co., he bought and sold land from 1781 through 1784. It seems likely the family moved to Rutherford Co., NC about 1783-85.

    Nathan purchased 200 acres from James Webb April 10, 1783, located on Main Broad River in Rutherford County. A few years later, in 1795, he sold a part of it to William Dobbins. On Apr. 13, 1802 he sold lands secured by title bond and gave possession to Arthur Clark the whole of 8 plantations containing 1,250 acres. Either he or his son, Nathan, Jr. bought land in Spartanburg Co., SC beginning in 1817.

    About 1801 Nathan and Drucilla's marriage began to fall apart. Quoting from the Haralson - Harrelson Family History, compiled by Danny K. Haralson, page 47 - "Nathan had been living with Delphy
    Logan since 1801." No source was cited as proof for this statement. Delphy Logan became Nathan's second wife, Oct. 8, 1819.

    In Delphy's application for a widow's pension, made Dec. 29, 1853, she stated that she and Nathan were not married prior to Jan. 2, 1800. Drucilla filed a petition for a legal separation to the
    North Carolina General Assembly October 11, 1808. The following is a copy of the document:

    To the Honorable the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina

    The humble petition of Drusilla Byars of Rutherford County in the said State wife of Nathan Byars of the same County she with, that your petitioner when married was worth a considerable estate, that her said husband had little or no property; that your petitioner lived in harmony with her husband for a great many years in which time she had 10 children during all which time ever since she hath used her best endeavor to improve their property and support their family, did use unremitted exertions to render her said husband happy. That about seven years ago her husband did withdraw his affection from her and did refuse giving her any protection or support and did convince her to leave his house, she repeate and returned and was often obliged to abandon his house to resort to the cold charity of the world for substenance.

    Your petitioner on representing these facts to the Court of Equity of Morgan District had a decree was made in her favor, but she finds no decree can be availing until she is authorized to hold any property she may acquire as she can find no friend who feels sufficient interest to induce him to act as a trustee, and to secure and defend any property to which she might be entitled.

    Now your petitioner humbly prays that an act of Assembly be made authorizing her to hold property which she may acquire and to maintain and defend suit in her own name.

    By order M. Stokes, Clk Mr. Pickens

    Granted in House of Commons 24 November 1808 read orders at by the Senate
    By order
    Honorable H.B.

    With the help of her son-in-law, Thaddeus Dudley Walker, Drucilla received some money from Nathan. From Rutherford Co., NC Deed Book 25, page 174:

    "This indenture made this 13th day of July, 1809, between William Carson, Esq., high sheriff of the County of Rutherford, State of North Carolina, on the one part and Thaddius Walker of the County of Rutherford and the State aforesaid of the other part. Whereas by virtue of an execution issuing from the Superior Court of Burke County against Nathan Byars for the sum of fifty pounds 5/ which sum was recovered by Drucilla Byars as on record may appear."

    The following information about the early divorces and separations is from The North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal, Vol. III, No. 1, Feb. 1977, pp. 43-45:

    "Divorces and Separations Granted by Act of North Carolina Assembly from 1790-1808" by B. Ransom McBride.

    McBride gives a history of Divorce and Separation during colonial times through 1808. He says, "With the advent of liberal Jeffersonian democracy, the upward trend continued, and in the six years between 1802 and 1808, the NC Assembly had approved four more complete divorces and 116 separations." A complete listing of divorces and separations is part of the article with divorces indicated with a D. On page 45 is this entry: Byars, Prusilla, husband not named; of Rutherford Co. (1808, page 39)". Complete information for each entry is available in the Legislative Papers of North Carolina.

    According to Maurice Rasmussen (Enquirer, Vol. I, No. 4, p. 109)

    Drucilla lived with her daughter Elizabeth Watkins and was with her daughter, Nancy Walker when she died.

    Tradition says Drucilla died in 1818. Since there was no divorce, Nathan had to wait until she died before he could marry Delphy, so that may well be the year Drucilla Harrelson Byars passed away.
    Nathan and Delphy Logan were married Oct. 8, 1819, in Spartanburg Dist., SC, by Rev. Joshua Richards.

    Nathan moved from Rutherford Co., NC to the area of the Cowpens Battleground, in the Spartanburg Dist., SC, settling on the high ground separating the Suck and Little Buck Creek watersheds. About 1822 he built a cabin and cleared and fenced a field southwest of the intersection of the Island (Coulter's Ford) and Green River roads. (This info from the Report of U.S. Park Service, Gov't Study).

    Shown on the next page is a picture of the cabin that Nathan Byars built, taken April 14, 1978, courtesy of Dorothy Eubanks Hays. Even though it was recommended that the house be studied, the National Parks Service tore it down."

    In April 1826, Nathan Byars had Joseph Camp survey for him a 394 acre tract, as evidenced by the following:

    State of South Carolina

    Pursuant to a warrant from Jabez Galt, Esq., Commissioner of Locations in Spartanburgh District dated 8th of March 1826 - I have admeasured & laid out unto Nathan Byars, Senr. a Tract of Land containing three Hundred & ninety four acres Situate in Said District and on the head waters of Island, Suck & Buck Creeks including his own home & plantation, also including the Cowpen Battle Ground Bounded East by Scruggs' & Earle's Land and all other sides by unknown Lands - and hath such shape & form as above Plat represents. Surveyed this 5th day of April 1826 ___
    By me, Joseph Camp,

    Andrew Rhea
    & C.B.
    Robt. Scruggs Recorded 12th April 1826. Paid $2.00 and
    Recorded in

    Plat Book B, at page 383.

    A copy of the plat is presented on the next page, followed by a Historical Base Map of the Cowpens National Battlefield.


    The following is quoted from a Report of U.S. Park Service Gov't. Study, page 12:

    "Gov. Richard J. Manning, on examining the plat and its accompanying certificate, granted on October 2, 1826, to Nathan Byars, "his heirs and assigns," a 394-acre tract or plantation on the headwaters of Island, Suck, and Buck creeks.

    An examination of the Byars, Steadman, and McClaren plats shows that in 1826 Byars had been granted 394 acres of the 2,000 acres granted to McClaren 23 years before. McClaren had conveyed title to most of the acreage in his grants to Wilson Nesbitt, who, plagued by lawsuits, had failed to maintain and defend his title. To the west Byars' grant intruded onto the acreage granted to James Steadman in 1787 by Governor Pinckney. The parties to whom the Steadman heirs had conveyed his 2,482-acre grant were absentee owners. Although the plat prepared for Nathaniel Gist by John Gibbs in 1845 shows a conflict, there were no court challenges.

    The Court of Common Pleas for Spartanburg District issued on November 16, 1840, a writ of Five Facias in the suit of Samuel Ezell against Nathan Byars. When Byars was unable to pay the judgment, Sheriff A.C. Bomar of Spartanburg District was ordered to levy $36.60 on his goods and chattels, with interests and costs.

    To enforce the writ, Sheriff Bomar seized and taken of the Lands and Tenaments of the said Nathan Byars all that certain piece parcel and tract of land containing three Hundred Acres, more or less."

    Samuel Ezell sold the 300 acres to his son, James H. Ezell.

    more.

    Nathan Byars was now left penniless, his land and home having been seized from him. On Dec. 31, 1844, he applied for a Military Pension which was repeatedly denied to him. Finally, Oct. 3, 1851, Michael Thompson wrote a letter to James E. Heath, Commissioner of Pensions, pleading emphatically for Nathan's claim to be allowed. This letter must have had a decisive effect. Of Nathan he wrote:
    "But I should reproach myself were I not to exhaust all proper means to establish what I solemnly believe to be a clear, legal and valid claim for a poor bedridden, half starved soldier of the revolution, who literally cries to me for help, to prosecute what he conceives, and what I conceive, to be his rights under the law."

    A typed copy of the Certificate issued for his claim appears on the next page. It was made retroactive to March 4, 1831 and his widow, Delphy recovered the sum. On Dec. 29, 1853, Delphy's application for the widow's pension of half-pay was executed.

    Nathan Byars had died in poverty Aug. 18, 1846 and was buried in the family graveyard behind the house and outbuildings. It would seem that he had died in obscurity, but in the late summer of 1971, descendants from all over the country gathered at his gravesite to dedicate a permanent government marker at his grave. It is reported by Clovis Byars Herring that in 1985 when she visited the cemetery the stone was in pieces and there was no sign of the DAR marker that was put there.

    It is not known when Delphy Byars was born or when she died. She is enumerated in the Census of 1850, Spartanburg District, SC:

    #1278 Delphia Bian 65 SC
    Juda Turner 36 SC male
    Simpson Russ 22 SC
    Miranda " 10 SC
    John H. " 8 SC
    Barbara " 5 SC
    Sarah " 3 SC


    According to this census record she was born in 1785, but in the Census of 1860, Spartanburg District, SC, she was living at Cowpens with the family of Robert and Delilah Martin, and was born in 1776. It is not known who the people were who were living with her. The last mention of her is in a letter which was found among the papers in Nathan's Pension File. It was written July 20, 1937 by A.H. Hiller, Executive Assistant to the Administrator, to Will Franke of Birmingham, AL. He states that in 1868 Delphy Byars was living about sixteen miles north of the Spartanburg Court House.

    Nathan Byars, was born in Granville Co., NC sometime in 1749 and, according to his pension declaration, he had no proof of his birthdate except that his father told him that he was a small boy at Braddock's defeat.

    At the time of his entry into the service, he was a resident of Caswell County, NC and was drafted for a 3-months tour of duty, serving as a Private under Captain Cunningham and Captain Forbes (?) (Forker?) in the Regiment commanded by Col. Ramsey and Major Moore. He was drafted for two additional tours of duty and later volunteered for a three-months tour. He did not remember the dates of his services; however, his declaration for pension, indicated that he was in the service `at the time of the battle of Eutah Springs, Kings Mountain, and at the time of Gates' defeat', although he did not fight in any of those battles. During the various tours of duty, Private Byars was stationed principally at Hillsborough, and adjacent counties, and, during one tour, went out against the Indians' in the western part of the State. In support of his claim for pension, two of his neighbors, Rev. Drury Scruggs, and Jesse Scruggs, attached a statement supporting the facts given by the claimant, Nathan Byars.

    Sometime just prior to, or during the Revolution, Nathan Byars was married to Drucilla Harrelson, Drucilla Harrelson born 1750, in Hanover Co., VA, daughter of Burges Harrelson and Elizabeth Green. According to a Rutherford Co., NC book 25, page 174, Nathan was ordered by the court to pay Drucilla $50.00 cash. Thought to be a divorce. After the divorce of Nathan and Drucilla, in 1799, Drucilla went to live with her daughter Elizabeth Byars Watkins in or near McMinnvile, TN. She later went to live with her daughter Nancy Byars Walker. She lived there until her death in 1816. Nathan later married Delphy Logan on October 8, 1819, and at least one, and possibly more, children were born of this marriage. Delphy Logan was born about 1779, and was married to Nathan Byars on October 8, 1819 in Spartanburg District, S. C. by Rev. Joshua Richards.

    Nathan Byars purchased 200 acres of land from James Webb on April 10,1783, located on Main Broad River in Rutherford County, NC. A few years later in 1795, part of this land was sold to Williams Dobbins {special note not included in article - William Dobbins is the 4th great-grandfather of Cecil VanDyke}. Byars moved to that area now in Cherokee County, SC about 1822, and on April 5, 1826, received a South Carolina State grant for 394 acres of land, in Spartanburg District located on the headwaters of Island, Suck and Buck creeks, part of an original grant to James Steadman. This land included that tract that is now the Cowpens National Battleground. Part of this land was sold by Byars to James H. Ezell on November 16, 1840, and on January 6, 1886, James Ezell sold part of th land, but reserved one acre, where the Cowpens Battleground monument now stands, as belonging to the Washington Light Infantry Company of Charleston, S.C. The federal government later erected the present monument on the site.

    Nathan Byars died August 18th, 1846, at the age of 97 years, and his grave is located about 1/2 mile from the battleground monument, about 11 miles west of Gaffney, Cherokee County, SC.

    Do you know this person?

    Thank you,

    This appears to be my information alright.....but, I have nothing more on Joseph at the present except that he was a Jr. and they probably did come out of Chesterfield Co., VA. Wish I had more to offer. Becky

    (ID *****7314) Date: August 08, 2002 at 21:06:59
    of 3841


    I posted this on rootsweb today and am posting here too:

    I need info and I mean ANY INFORMATION you may run across on HENRY GILL b. 1780-1785. I have a copy of a sale of partial land grant where Henry bought 20 acres from John White, possibly from NC. The sale was dated 1818 in Knoxville, TN. Grant was signed by then TN Governor Joseph McMinn. The 20 acres was located in Warren Co., TN. It is believed Henry was the son of JOSEPH GILL, b. mid 1700s (and maybe Sarah)but I have nothing on either. Joseph born VA and died NC.

    In 1830 Henry was listed in McMinn Co., TN census.

    In 1840 Henry was listed in White Co., TN and in 1841 he sold household goods (including beds,bed tables, etc) to settle a debt. I lose him after this.

    Henry has son SAMUEL who is my g/g/grndfather/ SAMUEL born about 1808 and listed

    1830 McMinn Co., TN
    1840 White Co., TN
    1850 Bledsoe Co., TN I believe he died betw. 1850-1860 as Malinda Davis whom he married July 12, 1838 in White Co., TN is listed in the 1860 Bledsoe Co., TN census without him.

    These families lived in/around White, Warren, Cumberland, Smith, Putnam, VanBuren, Brandley and Hamilton Cos. TN
    HENRY'S SIBLINGS include William, James, Jane/Jennie. She married Harrel Byars of Buncombe Co., NC and they removed and died in McMinnville, Warren Co., TN. There may be more siblings I do not have.

    I believe this line connects with Chesterfield Co., VA family and have some leads in Rutherford, Granville, Franklin Cos., NC. JOSEPH according to LDS was buried in ROWAN Co., NC maybe before 1795 but it is LDS info.

    Other connections include McJunkin and Carr/Kerr names. I have be searching this line since 1982 and hope you have run across something that may help.

    Thanks! Becky

    If the note on John RICE below is my John Rice and I think that it is, then John came to America abt 1745/46, if Louvisa's birth is in Ireland in 1745.
    John was a member of the 1st court of Lunenburg and served in the Lunenburg Militia in 1747. Grantland Rice is a relative. If Grantland is a relative then Louvisa must have a brother

    My info on Louvisa came from the book "The Descendants of Thomas A. & Louvisa Rice Womack" by Abner Womack McMinnville TN. I have never been able to find a sibling for Louvisa. Was Louvisa a only child?

    JOHN OR WILLIAM?

    Which one was the Father of John and William Mullican?

    By 1812 two brothers, John and William Mullican, were living on Mountain Creek in Warren County, Tennessee. For many years Mullican researchers have accepted as fact that the father of John and William Mullican was John Mullican. This is based on Rev. Ridlon's chapter on the Mullicans of Casey Co., KY in his book.i He states that John Mullican, SR married Nancy Ann Allen. Rev. Ridlon appears to have researched the families in his book, but it appears that most of his work on Casey Co., KY Mullicans was by oral tradition. It appears that his major informant was Polly Stanburry granddaughter of Solomon Mullican b 1784 of Casey Co., KY. After this John Mullican Rev. Ridlon's work appears very accurate.

    Rev. Ridlon's lists the family of John Mullican, SR as:

    John Mullican m Nancy Ann Allen:

    1. Thomas b bef [1763]
    2. William b [1769 VA] m1st Wilmoth Bruce m2nd Elizabeth Fuson m3rd Elizabeth Smith m4th Franky Barnes.
    3. . John b [7 March 1772 VA] m1st Mary Bruce m2nd Nancy Tarwatter.
    4. Ning b [ca 1765-1784].
    5. Nancy b [1775 VA] m John Vickers
    6. Sally b [ca 1784-1800] m. William Carr. Lived Kentucky and Alabama.
    7. Solomon b 1 Sept 1784 [VA] d 17 Nov 1871 Casey Co., KY m Nancy Ridgeway.
    8. James b [ca 1788] m _______ Lamb. Moved to Indiana

    Family tradition can be very helpful in researching our family lines, but if it is not correct then it can lead us astray. This then causes us to waste much of our research time looking for the wrong ancestor. This is true on the two Mullican brothers in Warren County. It is important to evaluate family tradition just as we do the records that we find. In family tradition if the event did not occur during the lifetime of the person giving the information the researcher should question the accuracy of any statement. I have found that an individual is fairly accurate through their grandparents, but after that it can be very inaccurate. But all family tradition can give us clues to look for in our research.

    I have found that we find very few records that state a direct ancestry. This is especially true in researching families of the Upper Cumberland area. Most of our ancestors did not leave wills, and our only hope is an exhaustive search of all the available records. We also must examine with the same detail the records of associates, neighbors, and potential relatives of our known ancestors. We then have to take the pieces of evidence that we obtain and analyze them to fit them into a pattern that can provide us with the answer to our problem.

    In researching my mother's surname of Mullican I spent many years in looking for a John Mullican in Virginia and other states. I kept ignoring the principle that the answer to the problem is the ancestor himself. When I conducted detailed research in the area where John and William Mullican lived and died, I started to form a different opinion than what Rev. Ridlon had determined.

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE:

    1. John and William Mullican first appear together in Warren County, Tennessee on the 1812 Tax list in Richard Cantrell's District. Also in this district were Elias, James Jr. & Sr, and Julias Webb.
    2. In the 1813 petition of citizens living in extreme Northeast corner of Warren County to move the voting place to Pine Creek are the names of John Mullican, William Mullican, Jr., and William Mullican. At this time both of the Mullican brothers had sons named John and William, but none of them were old enough to vote.
    3. Known associates of the Mullicans were Allens, Bristers (Bristows}, Lambs, Vickers, and Webbs.
    4. The 1807 Tax List of Casey County, Kentucky had a William Mullican & William Mullican, Sr living on Knoblick Creek.ii The 1808 Tax List also had a William Mullican, Jr., William Mullican, Sr., and Solomon Mullican. There were no other Mullicans. There was also a deed from Samuel Coleman & Milly Coleman to William Mullican for 100 acres of land on Knoblick Creek.iii The 1813 tax list had Soloman Mullican with 200 acres of land purchased of William Mullican. Also found was a deed from William Mulakin & Ann his wife to William Hanna for land on Knoblick Creek.iv Also found were court records showing William Mullican filing suit against Samuel Coleman and Jonathan Lamb.v
    5. Casey County, Kentucky was formed from Lincoln County in 1806. A search of Lincoln County records found a William Mullican on Knoblick Creek on the 1805 and 1806vi Tax lists along with Jesse, Joel, and Townsend Webb.
    6. William Mullican was also found on the 1814, 1816, and 1818 Tax lists of Lincoln County, Kentucky.

    At this point in my research I had a formed the theory that the father of the two Mullican brothers was William Mullican, and not John Mullican. Research in South Carolina and Virginia further strengthed this theory.

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND VIRGINA:

    1. William Mullicanvii, William Mullican, Jrviii, Thomas Mullicanix, and Ninimon Mullicanx all own land on Horse Creek in Greenville District, South Carolina. Land of Thomas and William is adjoining. William Mullican, Jr. is witness to the deed of William Mullican, William Mullican witness to deed of Thomas Mullicanxi, and James Mullican witness to deed when William Mullican sells his land in 1807.
    2. In 1787 &1807 the wife of William Mullican is Ann or Anneyxii, in 1813 the wife of Thomas Mullican is Milleyxiii, and in 1813 the wife of Ninemon is Susannahxiv.
    3. William Mullican, Jr. purchased land in Pendleton District, South Carolina from Joel Webbxv. William Mullican witness to deed of Joel Webbxvi. William Brister and Nancy Vick[Vickers] witnesses to deed of Joel Webbxvii. Benjamin Brister land borders Ninimon Mullican, and Benjamin Brister witness to deed of Ninimonxviii.
    4. In 1799 William Millican, Jr [Mullican] of Pendleton District, South Carolina sold his livestock to William Millican [Mullican], Sr of Greenville District, South Carolinaxix.
    5. The 1778 deed in Bedford County, Virgina in which William Mullikin[Mullican] and wife Nancy, William Handy and wife Elizabeth, and John White and wife Lucy sell land belonging to Robert Allen, decdxx. Nancy, Elizabeth, and Lucy identified as daughters of Robert Allen.
    6. The 1770 Will of Robert Allen in Bedford County, Virginia list daughters Betty[Elizabeth], Anny[Nancy Ann], and Lucy, and son-in-law William Handy is one of executors.
    7. In 1786 Thomas Mullican married Milley Routon in Bedford County, Virginia, and security for Thomas is William Mullicanxxi.
    8. In 1787 William Mullican and wife Ann sell land in Bedford County, Virginiaxxii.

    It is clear from our research and using "the preponderance-of-the-evidence principle" that William Mullican must be the father of John and William Mullican found on Mountain Creek in Warren County, Tennesssee. There is interaction of William Jr. and William Sr, and also association in South Carolina with Brister and Webb families later found in Warren County, Tennessee. Also if Nancy Ann Allen is the ancestor of John and William on Mountain Creek it appears unlikely that two Mullicans could have married a Nancy Ann Allen. There is no association of the Mullicans thought to be part of the family with a John Mullican of proper age in Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, or Virginia.

    1. WILLIAM MULLICAN1 b ca 1741 m Bedford Co., VA ca 1762 Nancy Ann Allen b ca Brunswick Co, VA dau of Robert Allen and ______ _____.

    William we can surmise was a farmer as he was a land owner in Bedford Co., VA, Greenville Dist, SC, and in Kentucky. The land of his father-in-law was on Buffalo Creek in Bedford County, and the land he sold in was on Orrix Creek in Bedford County. Buffalo Creek and Orrix Creek are close together, and on Eastside of Bedford County near the Campbell County border. belogHe appears on the Bedford County Tax lists from 1782 to 1786xxiii. In 1782 he was taxed on two horses, and in 1783-1786 he was taxed on 3 horses and 8 to 9 male cattle. He must have moved from Bedford County in 1786 or 1787 to Greenville District, South Carolina. He is listed on the 1790 and 1800 Census of Greenville District, South Carolina with neighbors James Webb, Jesse Webb, Joel Webb, and John Vickers. In 1791 he purchased from William Floid 50 acres of land.xxiv It appears that the Mullican's lived in the Horse Creek area of Greenville District, South Carolina. Horse Creek is located in Southern part of Greenville County, South Carolina, and South of Town of Fork Shoals. It runs south then curves to the east into Reedy River near the Northern border of Laurens County. Horse Creek is also just to the east of the Anderson (old Pendleton District) County line. On 13 Mar 1807 he and wife Anny sold 360 acres of land on Horse Creek, Waters of Reedy River, Greenville District, to Strawder Shumate for $400.00.xxv The 360 acres was bordered by land of Thomas Mullican, Johnathan Dewece, William Davenport, Hullett Sullivant, William McCulla, and John Chandler.

    William probably moved at this time to Casey County, Kentucky as he is listed on 1807 Casey County Tax list with two white males over 16 years of age as William Sr.xxvi Also listed was his son, William Mullican with one white male over 16. He is found on the Casey County Tax list through 1811. In 1808 William Jr and Solomon Mullican are listed with him, and in 1809 James and Solomon Mullican are listed with him. Since William Jr is not found on 1809 Tax list we can assume that he has now moved probably to Warren County, Tennessee. William Sr is listed on the 1810 Census of Casey County, Kentucky with one white male under 10; one white male over 45; one white female 10-16; and one white female over 45. In 1811 he is on Casey County Tax lists with his sons James and Solomon Mullican. In 1812 he purchased 100 acres of land on Three Knoblick Creek in Casey County from Samuel and Milly Coleman.xxvii By 1813 he was in Warren County, Tennessee as he signed the petition to change the voting place to Pine Creek along with his sons William Mullican Jr and John Mullican.xxviii Then in 1814 we find him on the Lincoln County, Kentucky Tax list with 40 acres of land.xxix Also on 30 May 1814 as William Mulakin and wife Ann of Lincoln County sold for $400.00 land on Three Knoblick Creek in Casey County to William Hanna.xxx He is not found on the 1815 Tax list of Lincoln County, but his son James Mulakin is listed. He is on the 1816 and 1818 Lincoln County Tax lists. We have found no record of him after 1818, and he probably died in 1818-1820.

    Nancy Ann Allen Mullican is first found in records in the will of Robert Allen as one of his three daughters.xxxi Robert appears to have been a long time resident of Southside Virginia as he is first found in Brunswick County, then in Lunenburg County when it was formed from Brunswick, and then in Bedford County after it was formed from Lunenburg. She seems to have preferred the name Anny as the only time she is listed as Nancy was when her fathers land was sold.xxxii In that deed her sister was listed as Elizabeth, and not by the nickname Betsey.

    2. THOMAS MULLICAN2 (William1) b ca by 1763 ?VA m 28 June 1786 Bedford Co., VA Millie Routon b ca 1765-1784. He apparently moved with his father to Greenville District, South Carolina about 1786 or 1787. On 4 May 1791 he purchased 35 acres of land on Horse Creek in Greenville District from Jesse Chandler.xxxiv This land adjoined land of Jesse Chandler and William Mullican. Then on 20 Jan 1801 he purchased 110 acres of land on Horse Creek of Reedy River from Moses Lingo.xxxv This land was orginally granted to Jesse Chandler. Witnesses to this deed were William Mullican and Warrick Bristo. Thomas is listed on the 1810 Census of Greenville District with 4 white males under 10; 2 white males 10-16: 1 white male 16-26: 1 white male over 45: 1 white female under 10: 1 white female 10-16: 2 white female 16-26; and one white female 26-45. On 21 June 1816 he and wife Melg sold 60 acres of land on Horse Creek to Douglas Childers.xxxvi This land bordered Thomas Brister, John Chandler, Sr, Lenus Rice, and Thomas Mullican. Witnesses to the deed were Richard R. Mullican and Thomas Mullican Jr. Then on 9 Feb 1818 he sold 291 acres of land on Horse Creek to Joseph McCullough.xxxvii This was apparently all of his land owned at that time as it included the plantation he now lives on. We can surmise that in 1818 Thomas moved from Greenville District. This seems to be further confirmed by the fact that in Mar 1817 Milly Mullican was granted her letter of dismissal by Fork Shoals Baptist Church.xxxviii On the membership lists Milly Mullican is listed below a - - lly Mullican.xxxix Thomas was also a member of Fork Shoals Baptist Church as on 11 Nov 1826 as a former member he was restored to membership. The abstractor of the church minutes added a note that "he may also have been dismissed at the same time."xl Fork Shoals Baptist Church is located in southern Greenville County, South Carolina just off McKelvey Road [Hwy 154], eight miles southwest of Fountain Inn and ten miles southeast of Piedmont.xli The first surviving minutes of this church start in 1814. South Carolina Baptist Historian think that Fork Shoals Baptist Church was formerly Horse Creek Baptist Church, as the first appearance of name Fork Shoals is in 1799 and the final appearance of Horse Creek Church was in 1798.

William Mullican was a farmer, and appears to have moved with his father to South Carolina about 1787. On 10 Mar 1791 he purchased for 100 pounds 240 acres of land on Horse Creek, Greenville District, South Carolina from Joseph Dunklin.xliii This land was bordered by the land of Jesse Chandler. He was still living in Greenville District on 26 Jan 1792 when he appeared in court as witness to deed for his father.xliv He may have moved to North Carolina for a few years as his son, William, on 1850 census says he was born in North Carolina. We do not know if his son gave the information to the census taker, or if it was a neighbor or some other person. If he did then he was back in South Carolina by 1797. On 29 May 1797 he purchased for 40 pounds 300 acres of land from Joseph Webb[Joel Webb] on Seneca River in Washington District of South Carolina.xlv This land was bordered by the land of James Chandler and Isham Irby. On 5 August 1798 he sold 240 acres of this land for 50 pounds to John Russel.xlvi The deed describes the land as being on Northside of Keowee River. William signed with an "X" as his mark. On 4 November 1797 as William Millican Jr of Pendleton District he sold his livestock to his father in Greenville District.xlvii He is in the 1800 Pendleton District, SC census with 3 white males under 10, 1 white male 26 to 45, 2 white females under 10, and 1 white female 26 to 45. He was still in Pendleton District in 1801 when he helped inventory the estate of George Hoge.xlviii By 1805 he is in Lincoln County, Kentucky as he is on Tax List with one white male over 21 and two horses.xlix In the same tax district were Jesse, Joel, and Townsend Webb. He is also on the 1806 Lincoln County Tax List with one white male, three horses, and 200 acres of land on Knoblick Creek.l In 1806 part of Lincoln County including Knoblick Creek was formed into Casey County, Kentucky. He is listed as William Mullican, Jr on the 1807 and 1808 Tax Lists of Casey County with four horses and 100 acres of land on Knoblick Creek with his father as William Mullican SR. In 1808 Solomon Mullican is also listed on the tax lists.li We feel he moved from Casey County in 1808-1809 to Warren County, Tennessee as on 17 September 1810 in he had his occupant claim of 177 acres of land surveyed on Mountain Creek adjoining James Webb.lii He, his brother, John Mullican, Elias, James Jr & Sr, and Julias Webb is listed on the 1812 Warren County Tax list in Richard Cantrell's District.liii Also in same district was. On 6 April 1813 he entered 60 acres of land on dry fork of Mountain Creek in Warren County. The land, which included said Mullican's spring, was surveyed on 17 October 1813 with James Webb and William Mullican as survey chain carriers.liv Also in 1813 he, brother John, and their father, William, signed a petition as citizens living in extreme Northeast corner of Warren County to move voting place to Pine Creeklv [in present DeKalb Co.] He entered 12 acres of land on 12 October 1814 on waters of Mountain Creek.lvi The land was surveyed on 8 September 1815, and survey chain carriers were James Webb and William Mullican. He entered two tract of land in 1824 for 82 acres and 50 acres.lvii In 1825 and 1826 he entered two tracts of land of 50 acres each.lviii The 1825 and 1826 entries joined land of Jonathan Parris on Mountain Creek. He also entered seven acres of land in 1826 which joined his 60 acre tract he lived on, his 12 acre tract, and land he purchased from Enoch Anderson, James Webb, and Thomas Harper.lix In 1828 he entered 30 acres of land on waters of Collins River, and the 30 acres begin on beginning corner of tract John G. Mullican now lives so as to include the old 30 acre tract said mullican now lives on.lx He also added to his land holdings in 1828 by purchasing 50 acres from Jonathan Davis.lxi The land was on both sides of Mountain Creek. The land begin a few poles of the Baptist Meeting House, and joined Jonathan Parris's lower 100 acre survey.

    William and his wife, Wilmouth, were on the 1812-1816 membership list.lxii of the Old Bildad Baptist Church on Sink Creek in present day DeKalb County, Tennessee Also on the same list are Allen Mullican, Jane Mullican, Julius Webb, and Hannah Webb. William and Wilmouth may have moved
    Their membership to Old Bildad's sister church, Concord Baptist Church, after it was established in 1814. Concord was located south of Mountain Creek in Warren County, and may have been the church mentioned in the 1828 survey of Williams's. Old Bildad and Concord held strong beliefs in predestination, and neither had a Sunday School or musical instruments. They would have a preaching service only once a month; lasting two to three hours, including the singing which was very slow.lxiii When William's relationship with the Baptist Church begin is not exactly known, but it continued in later generations. As his grandson, John Jefferson Mullican, added a substantial wood frame room onto his log cabin for the church to meet on Jones Fork in DeKalb County. William's great grandson, Jeremiah Mullican, continued the Primitive Baptist tradition as he was a Minister.lxiv

    Rev. Ridlon states that Wilmouth Bruce was the wife of William Mullican. I have found no association of the Mullican family with the Bruce family. I first thought that William's wife may have been a Webb. It is obvious that William was close to his family, since he was close to them why would he move several times away from them. He first moves several miles away in a new county. Then he moves to another state. When his family joins him he moves to another state. There seems to be only one logical reason for these moves and that is his wife wanted to be with her family. In each of his moves the Webb family was close to him. He buys land from the Webbs, witnesses their deeds, and gives bond for them. There was a close association for there to be no relationship involved. Another indication of Webb involvement is his brother, John, purchased land from Julius Webb. Then there is the William Mullican appointed as appraiser of the estate of Thomas Townsendlxv, and Townsend was the father of Didama Townsend the wife of of Jesse Webb.lxvi Jesse and his son, Townsend Webb, were in Kentucky with William Mullican. John's son, John, named one of his daughters, Didama Mullican. Per Tommy Webb, DeKalb County Historian, Julius Webb had a sister Didama Webb that married James Webblxvii the neighbor of William, and of course Jesse Webb's wife was Didama Townsend. The family Bible of Jeremiah Mullican, grandson of John S. Mullican and great grandson of William, has William marrying Willie Bruce. This is from copy made by Rock House Chapter, D.A.R., Sparta, Tennessee. This copy also has William's brother, John, marrying Bettie Bruce. This information was from the second page of the Bible.

    In 1960's I copied the original Bible of Jeremiah Mullican which was owned by Ms. Florence Williams, Dry Valley, Cookeville, Tennessee. The flyleaf on the Bible was dated 1893. In this Bible there was no mention of William Mullican and his wife. I also have portions of the original bible of John Jefferson Mullican, son of John S. Mullican, and it does not mention William or his wife. It is obvious that there is no clearcut evidence as to the surname of William's wife. Later I found the will of Elisha Estes in Roane Co., TN. Elisha made his will on 6 Sep 1818 and probated 9 Mar/ 1819 in his will he names daughters, Wilmoth Mulliken; Jenney Neighbor; Susanna Eastes; Nany Webb, Elizabeth Crumbles and Mary Brister.lxviii Elisha Estes lived in Greenville District, South Carolina on Horse Creek near the Mullicans and this is time frame William would have married.lxix

    The landholdings of William and the inventory that follows indicates that he was a farmer as was the majority of the men in his neighborhood. We can see from the inventory that he raised corn, oats, owned hogs and cattle. His home was probably made of logs that he had cleared from his land to farm.

    William was dead by 24 March 1851 when the inventory of his personal property was taken.lxx In his inventory was 1 clock; 4 bedsteads & furniture; 1 cupboard; 1 Bible; 1 table; 1 pothook; 1 lot of pewter; lot of stoneware; 1 pot oven with lid; 1 looking glass; 2 barrels; 1 bottle; 2 wheels; 1 check reel; 1 pot with hooks; lot of grain, 1 mans saddle; 1 lot of chain; 1 waggon; 1 froe; 1 weeding hoe; 1 wood saw; lot of shucks; 1 curry comb; 13 barrels corn; lot of fodder; stack of oats; cutting knife; lot of hoggs; 1 cow & calf; 1 pulley; 1 trunk; 1 plow; 1 bottom; 1 trough; 1 keg, $25.00 in cash; 1 note on Elias C. Barnes & James Barnes $10.00 due 25th Dec 1847 doutfull; 1 note on John G Mullican for $42.44 due 9th Sept 1840 which note is bad the maker being Insolvent he is one of the heirs 1 note on James Mullican for sixty bushell of salt. P. Mullican is dead & Insolvent; 1 witness claim for $2. considered good.

    The Inventory was taken by William C. Mullican and Samuel Fuston as administators. Buyers at the estate sale were Zebedee Edge; Sarah Green; Nancy Fuston;Thomas Womack; Wm G. Mullican, Bible; Franky Mullican; Jany Mullican; Nancy Mullican; Pinkney Mullican; T. G. Mullican; John J. Mullican; Allen Mullican; Thomas Womack; Anderson Mullican; Wm J.
