    Notes:

    copied from page 378 item number 1130 of a book about early settlers of Tennessee from the White County Public Library
    144 South Main Street, Sparta, TN 38583

    The submitter apparently did not know about the much earlier ancestors of John Wilburn Hash as you will note.

    "The Hash (originally spelled Hache) ancestors fled from their homeland, France,to escape religious persecutions. Not long after their arrival in the New World, they were faced with the struggles and oppression brought about by the Civil War.But with their Hugenot ancestral grit and determination they perserved and made their mark on pioneer TN.

    John Wilburn Hash, Sr. was born Nov. 24, 1818 at Rock Island.His father was William Wesley Hash and his mother was Elizabeth Baldwin Hash.

    On Oct 13, 1842, John married Nancy Franks born June 7, 1822 in White County, the daughter of Jesse Franks and Mary (Polly) Moore Franks.(Note added here by Doris Buhr:Mary (Polly) Moore Franks is descended from the Rev. Richard Denton who came to this country in about 1635.The Rev. Denton is considered by some to be the father of the Presbyterian church in the United States.Sue Montgomery Cooke has a wonderful website about the Denton Family.Denton County and Denton, Texas are named for a Denton descendant.If you use your search engine and type in: Nancy Franks Sue Montgomery Cook Denton Family, you should get to the site. )

    The children of John and Nancy Franks Hash were:

    Elizabeth (Betty) born May 6, 1843, who married John Bybee on Aug. 16, 1860 and died May 25, 1862.
    Mary born JKan. 18, 1845, who married Byrd Gribble on Oct. 4, 1866 and died Jun 24, 1867.
    William Henderson (Buck)Hash born March 3, 1847 who married Josephine Potter on Dec. 18, 1871 and died Jul 28, 1912;
    Margaret Louisa, born Jun 6, 1851 who married Byrd Gribble on Jul 9, 1868 and (2) William Thomas Rowland and died May 5, 1928;
    James H., born Aug. 3, 1851 and died Nov 5 1866;
    Leeann, born 1854 who married William Trousdale Gribble on Oct. 5, 1871 and died Mar 19, 1925;
    Tabitha, born 1857 who married Monroe Gribble in 1872 and died (date unknown) in Coleman, Texas; (correction:Tabitha (my great grandmother)died in 1937 in Waco, Texas. She did live for a time with her daughter Sidya Elizabeth Gribble Brown wife of John Gilliam Brown, in Coleman, but she did not live in Coleman at the time of her death. Also, Tabitha was married to Henry R. Gribble who also died in Waco, Texas. Monroe Gribble was probably a nephew of Henry R. Gribble not her husband.)
    John Wilburn, Jr.born Sept. 10, 1858 who married (1) Mary Holly Mar 20 1892 and (2) Mary Chambers in 1902 and died Nov. 8, 1848;
    Jefferson Davis Hash born Jan 10, 1861 who married Mary (Dolly) Miller on Mar 13, 1890 and died Mar 12 1938; and
    George Washington Hash born in 1864 married Josephine Deaton in 1897 and died Dec 18, 1935.

    These children were the parents of 48 grandchildren for John Wilburn and Nancy and these grandchildren were the parents of 112 great-grandchildren.

    Much of John Wilburn and Nancy's early married years occurred furing the Civil War.So, raising a large family was especially hard when marauding troops were trying to obtain food and supplies by whatever means necessary.John Wilburn once found his oldest daughter Betty (young wife of John Bybee) confronting some of the mauraders at his barn. It is believed that she was pregnant at the time but notwithstanding, she had placed her body against the barn door to hinder the raiders. Instead of shooting Betty, they "shoved" her away from the door. It was at about that time her father came around the corner of his barn to see what was happening. He said to one of his nearby children, "Bring me the gun from the house."One of the soldiers hearing this, took aim at John Wilburn's heart evidently since the bullet clipped one button -- not more-- from John Wilburn's shirt.

    John Wilburn Hash, Sr. died Oct 6, 1896 and Nancy Franks Hash died Sept 10, 1905.They are buried in the Hash Cemetery at Rock Island,TN. Submitted by Bob Roberts, Rt. 1, Box 320, Doyle, TN 38559. Source:Family records and legends."

    Celia Hash and Overton Chisam are my direct line.

    There must be a great story behind these two families.Did they live near each other growing up? Anyone?

    Generation No. 2

    2.Micajah2 Seamons, 1786/89-1855/65 (James Seamons/1 Simmons) was born 1786 in Tennessee5, and died Abt. 1855 in Van Buren Co., Tennessee6.He married Nancy Sparkman, 1789-1854 21 September 1808 in Grainger Co, Tenn7,8,9, daughter of George Sparkman and Ruth Holley.She was born 1789 in Bertie County, North Carolina10, and died 1854 in Van Buren Co, Tenn.

    Notes for Micajah Seamons, 1786/89-1855/65:
    Micajah Seamons was a soldier in the War of 1812 and served as Justice of the Peace in Van Buren County, Tennessee for several years.He was past the age of 86 when he died in Warren County, Tennessee and his wife Nancy Sparkman Seamons was but 65 when she died in Van Buren County, Tennessee. (REF: HISTORY OF VAN BUREN COUNTY, CHAPTER XXIII, p. 259)
    As stated Micajah served in War of 1812; he stated that he was substituting for Jonathan Seamons.Maybe Jonathan was his father, and was either ill or too old to serve in the military, therefore the reason that Micajah served for him.This is just an idea, but since Micajah Seamons and his wife, Nancy Sparkman, named a son Jonathan this is a very good possiblity.

    M. A. female child age 10 months born in Tennessee, probably same person as Martha M. Seamans born 1859
    Martha Haley age 13 born in Tennessee,(Who is she?) Is it possible that she is a daughter of Nancy, was Nancy married before her marriage to Micajah? Or was Martha Haley a neice, or just a friend that was visiting when the census taker was recording the household information?Perhaps she was a babysitter for the daughters of Micajah.

    10.Drury2 Simmons (James Seamons/1) was born 1806 in South Carolina, and died Bet. 1851 - 1898 in Van Buren Co., Tennessee.He married (1) Tabitha (Rutha) Sparkman23 Bef. 1843, daughter of George Sparkman and Martha Bryant.She was born 1810 in Grainger Co, Tenn, and died Unknown.He married (2) Tabitha or Rutha Adair Abt. 1856.She was born Bet. 1800 - 1830, and died Unknown.

    Notes for Drury Simmons:
    The 1850 Census of White County Tennessee gives the following family of Drury Simmons & Rutha (not Tabitha) who was possibly Rutha Sparkman.

    Dwelling #419
    DRURY SIMMONS age 44 Farmer $300 property born in S. C.
    RUTHA (SPARKMAN?) age 40 born in Tennessee
    William Simmons age 20 born in Tennessee
    James Simmons age 18 born in Tennessee
    Nancy Simmons age 17 born in Tennessee
    Solomon Simmons age 15 born in Tennessee
    Francis Simmons age 13 born in Tennessee
    Zacariah Simmons age 10 born in Tennessee
    Joseph Simmons age 8 born in Tennessee
    Martha Simmons age 6 born in Tennessee
    Stacy Simmons age 4 born in Tennessee
    Fineas Simmons age 1 born in Tennessee

    The above data would indicate that Drury Simmons was born in 1796 not 1806 as stated on the family group sheet and would make (Tabitha) Rutha born in 1810, and we know that Rutha who was married to Abner Ray was born in 1789.From this census record the children of Drury Simmons born 1806 are correct however his wife and these children's mother was not Rutha-perhaps the census taker was a little hard of hearing and misunderstood that Drury's wife was Tabitha Sparkman, not Rutha.Or even more likely is the possibility that Tabitha was already deceased, and Rutha, who would have been Tabitha's sister was just residing with Drury for a short while, although her name should be Rutha Sparkman Ray, not just Rutha Sparkman.

    The above theory is repudiated in that the 1860 White Co., Tennessee gives the family of Drury Simmons as follows, and as you can see his wife is listed as Tabitha, not Rutha as it was in the 1850 census.

    Drury Simmons age 55
    Tabitha Simmons age 50
    James Simmons age 28 and judged to be insane
    Solomon Simmons age 23
    Francis Simmons age 21
    Zechariah Simmons age 19
    Joseph Simmons age 16
    Martha Simmons age 14
    Stacy Simmons age 12
    Finis Simmons age 10

    Note William and Nancy who were also children of Drury are not enumerated in the same household in 1860.The reason is that they were probably married and living in their own homes.

    The Simmons and Adair families lived near each other in White County, Tennessee in 1860 and of course they were good friends, some of the descendants of these two families intermarried with each others families as well as the Sparkman family.

    Darlene,

    I see that you have a Moore line in Orange Co. ; I do too!

    The tradition is that my third greatgrandfather, Jesse Alexander Moore ( Scots-Irish b ca. 1745 N.C, and died ca. 1820 White Co., TN) was living with a Cherokee family in Orange Co., N.C. and married their daughter, Denta. They and their son, Samuel A. Moore (b 8 Oct., 1762 N.C d 1Dec.,1845 White Co., TN) migrated to White Co., TN

    Do you know anything about my Moores'--possibly Alexanders', too?

    Please tell me about your Moores' in case I run across anything which may help you.

    Thank you so much Darlene! Nancy

    ****************************************************************
    Information from James Earles:
    "Not sure what additional information you are looking for but the following is some of what I have written on the William Earle branch of the family:

    My information indicates William Earle was the oldest son of Gamaliel & Martha Earle and was born about 1740, a few years after Gamaliel immigrated to Brunswick County in the Virginia Colony. The surname was clearly Earle upon arrival from England but is most often recorded as Earles or Earls and sometimes as Earl, Erle, Erls, Yearl, & Yearls. In the early 1740's the family moved across the Roanoke River to Granville County, NC but lived very near the boarder and over the years family members also owned land &, at various times, lived on the Virginia side.

    William shows up on the Granville County, NC 1762 tax record as living with Gamaliel and, after the Bute County split from Granville in 1764, shows up on the 1766 & 1771 Bute county tax lists. He purchased 100 acres 13 Feb 1772 and was assigned 40 acres from Gamaliel 19 Aug 1772. On 12 Nov 1777 he sold the 100 acres and in Feb 1778 is one of those listed as taking the State Allegiance oath. William most likely was in the local Militia during the Revolutionary War but nothing has yet been found to indicate he served with an active military unit.

    On 16 Mar 1778 William is listed as having land on both sides of Callier's road adjacent to the Granville County line. In 1779 Bute County became Warren County and William Earles is listed on the 1779 & 1781 tax lists. The 1781 tax list indicates William has left the county and in 1782 a William Earles pays taxes on 250 acres in Montgomery County, NC. The supposition that this is the same William is strengthened by Frederick, a younger son of Gamaliel, marrying in 1785 and immediately moving to Montgomery County where he shows up on the 786 census. In 1790 William is counted on the Montgomery County Salisbury District census but Frederick had moved to Rutherford County and is counted in the sixth company of the Morgan District. The connection between William & Frederick is further strengthened by the 1790 Rutherford County census showing John Roberts & Robert Harden living adjacent to Frederick, both of whom were witnesses to the William Earle 1803 Will.

    It appears William had moved to near Frederick in Rutherford County by 1792 because 3 of his children (William Jr., Priscilla, & Bennet) married in 1792 & 1793 to families that were living in Rutherford County. Rutherford County land entry records for Jan & Mar 1796 show 300 acres were granted to William Earle "on a branch at the head of Hickory Creek on waters of the First Broad River." His 1803 Will says the homestead "begins at the Sholley Branch & runs up his Spring Branch," and he bequeathed 100 acres to each of his three youngest sons (Pleasant, Nathan, & Elijah).

    Lincoln County records show William Jr. purchased land in the lower first Broad River basin on the waters of
    Buffalo Creek. The 1800 census counts William, third son Joshua, & daughter Priscilla (Ledbetter) in Rutherford County and William Jr. & Bennet in Lincoln County.

    William Earle died in Jan 1803 and his undated Will names six sons (William Jr., Bennet, Joshua, Pleasant,
    Nathan & Elijah), three daughters (Priscilla, Lucy, & Margaret) & wife Elizabeth. Census data indicate there was a fourth daughter who died about 1802 and court records show Elijah died before April 1803. William left the 100 acre Rutherford County home farm (beginning at the Sholley Branch and running up Spring Branch) to Nathan and his other 200 acres to Pleasant & Elijah. William Jr., Bennet, & Joshua were left 10 shillings each. Elizabeth remarried in 1805 and an 1807 court record indicates Lucy had died by that date and the remaining 8 children (6 sons + Priscilla Ledbetter & Margaret Hardin) & Elizabeth sold 100 acres (probably the parcel left to Elijah) to Charles Love in Jan 1807.

    Jesse was born 1750, possible in Hillsborough, Orange Co., NC and died about 1820 in Tennessee. His mother and father were Elizabeth and Arthur. Information that I have found says he married a Cherokee Indian by the name of "Denta", last name unknown. I have conflicting birthdates for her, but most information lists her born 1730 in NC, making her 20 years Jesse's senior. Another source says she was born circa 1750.

    Their son, Samuel Alexander Moore, b. 1770 in either NC or White Co. TN., married Nancy Mourning Denton (b. 1776 in TN), in White Co., TN. in 1797.

    Their daughter, Nancy(?) Jane Moore b. 1803 in TN., married my GGGgrandfather, John Anderson Killion.

    If anyone has more information concerning who 'Denta' is, I would appreciate your sharing. Sue Ann Holcomb.

    Jesse Alexander MOORE (Scots-Irish b ca. 1745 d ca. 1820) married Denta (Cherokee) and their son , Samuel A. Moore, was born 8 Oct., 1762 in Orange Co., TN. Later, the entire family migrated to White Co., TN

    The tradition is that Jesse A. Moore was living with Denta's family in Hillsborough, Orange Co., NC.

    If anyone knows of these people and/or could suggest any type of research in the Orange County area --genealogical, Native American, or history of Orange County which could help, I would appreciate your help.

    Comments (Abraham Denton, III b. 0___ 1726 Orange Co.,NY d. 0___ 1828 Obion Co.,TN,intestate): In my research, I have found that the person(S) who perpetrated the mistake that Abraham Denton 111 died in Obion county were indeed mistaken. He was very elderly when he appears in 1820 census of Perry county and on the petition to form Perry county. He moved there after selling his farm in white County in 1817. I have read the records that Edith Whitley used and they omit Perry County and make the claim of Obion. This needs to be changed . Researchers have scoured Obion for some trace to no avail. It was formed later than Perry,as well.

    Note: SOURCE NOTES:
    SOURCE NOTES:

    He appears to have remained in Shenandoah County, Virginia until the death of his father.

    It is the opinion of David S. Templin (author/source of this information) that this Abraham married Mourning Hogg in Shenandoah (then Dunsmore Co) County, Virginia, possibly about 1757.

    Abraham Denton had moved to Wataga settlement by 1775, andthe family was forced back into Virginia by the Cherokees invasionduring the summer of 1776.

    Abraham Denton was active in the affairs of Washington and Greene Counties.

    This Abraham seems to have disappeared from East Tennessee by the time Tennessee became a state. It is said that he appears in White County, Tennessee about 1809 and in Perry County in 1821. He is said to have died in Obion County,Tennessee.

    1738-1828

    Abraham DENTON III was born in 1738 in Orange CO, NY. Died in 1828 in Obion CO, TN. From "The Denton Family" by David H. Templin, printed in the Smokey Mountain Historical Newsletter, Spring 1983: "Abraham Denton moved to the Watauga settlements by 1775, and the family was forced back into Virginia by the Cherokee invasion during the summer of 1776. Abraham was active in the affairs of Washington and Greene Counties. Abraham apparently was living in the section of Washington County which was formed into Greene County. August 23, 1784, Abraham was a delegate from Greene County to the convention held in Jonesboro and which led to the formation of the State of Franklin. Abraham was one of five grantees to 150 acres lying in the Fork of Big Pigeon and French Broad River. This grant was issued by North Carolina June 11, 1788. The land is located in what is now Cocke County, Tennessee. The first church established in what is now Cocke County, Tennessee was the Big Pigeon Baptist Church. Among the charter members is found Mourning Denton. Abraham seems to have disappeared from East Tennessee by the time Tennessee became a state. It is said that he appears in White County, Tennessee about 1809 and in Perry county in 1821. In her book, Edythe Whitely lists the children of Abraham and Mourning Denton. The list seems to have been prepared from letters and other papers collected from John S. Denton. One letter cited in her book was from Holland Denton, grandson of Abraham and Mourning."

    Abraham apparently fought with the North Carolina line in the Revolutionary War after he moved to the Yadkin river region.

    Abraham's movements: 1766 in NC; 1774 in Rowan CO, NC; 1783 in Burke CO, NC then to Washington CO, TN (Sinking Creek); 1809 to 1821 in White CO, TN and later to Hickman and Perry COs, TN.

    He married Elizabeth who died.

    They had the following children:

    John DENTON
    Elizabeth "Bettie" DENTON


    He also married Mourning HOGG in 1766. Mourning HOGG was born in 1750. She died in Monroe Co., TN.

    They had the following children:

    Rev. Isaac DENTON
    Sarah "Sally" DENTON
    Nancy M. DENTON

    Hi Jim. I would like to add to your message on the movements of Abraham DENTON III. It indicates that perhaps he was in Smith Co TN on 1 Jan 1801 since he signed a petition while living there until White Co., TN was formed. Thanks to Rich EDWARDS who sent me copies of the petitions (1-1-1801) signed
    by the settlers of SMITH County TENNESSEE living on OBED River in opposition
    of a new county to be formed. Looking at the first signed petition Jacob
    SHIPMON signed the petition and so did Moses SHIPMAN , Abraham SHIPMAN and
    George SAILING husband of Sarah Jane KUYKENDAL SHIPMAN. These SHIPMANs were living
    is the same vicinity and are considered to be of the same family. No DENTONs
    on this petition.

    Another copy of the same petition with slight differences in some of the
    wording is signed by the residents of Smith County. No SHIPMANs nor DENTONs
    signed on this petition.

    Another copy of the same petition dtd 1-1-1801 was signed by 104 of Smith
    County TN residents including in order the following:
    #5 Abrem DENTEN
    #10 Samuel DENTEN
    #11 John DANTON
    #12 Jeremiah DANTON
    #14 Elijah DANTON
    #15 Abraham DENTON SR
    #16 Samuel DENTON SR
    #17 Benjamin DENTON (Married to a Jane SHIPMAN)*
    #18 Jacob SHIPMAN (Married to a Nancy DENTON)*
    * Numbers (#) & Notations were added by me
    Source---Tenn. State Archives Legislative Petitions 1799-1801 Roll 1
    Ansearchin' News Fall 1992

    Jim I also have reasons to believe that the Samuel DENTON SR between Abraham Denton SR and Benjamin DENTON above is the father of Benjamin DENTON that is also later found on the 1812 WHite Co TN Tax List. Both Sam and Ben are on the 1820 Perry Co TN Census. So evidently the thoughts that Samuel DENTON died in 1811 in SC is either incorrect or else there is another Samuel DENTON who is the brother of Abraham DENTON. It was stated by Ben F DENTON a grandson of Benjamin DENTON who died in Marshall CO MS in a letter that his Grandfather Ben was a cousin of Samuel DENTON the son of Abraham DENTON that Died in Obion Co., TN.
    All three were on the 1820 Perry Co TN Census.

    It has been written that Samuel DENTON was born in 1734 in Orange CO, NY. Died in 1811 in Pendleton Dictrict, SC. Samuel was a Revolutionary War Soldier in the NC Continental Line and received bounty land in White CO, TN. Until proper dates are learned, it is uncertain which children belong to which mother.

    By 1769 both Abraham III and Samuel had joined a wagon train from the Shenandoah Valley to Lord Granville's land sale in North Carolina. This wagon train was made up of the then current younger generation of the Plumleys, Weavers, Moores, Hoggs, Dentons, etc. These, the growing-up children of the original immigrants to the Virginia frontier were marrying and developing families of their own and hungered for land of their own. They could not afford the local land and family holdings were not large enough to divide among all of the children. When Lord Granville began to advertise his land for sale, it was a new frontier to these young families. Tax lists and early censuses show that Samuel settled in what is now Granville CO while Abraham III settled in Caswell CO. Each chose to settle near where their wives' relatives bought land -- the Moores around Samuel and the Hoggs around Abraham III's family.

    And it appears both Abraham and Samuel traveled on into Smith Co TN in 1801 with other families including a Jacob SHIPMAN that was married to Samuel`s daughter Nancy Denton.

One letter cited in her book was from Holland Denton, grandson of Abraham and Mourning."

    Abraham apparently fought with the North Carolina line in the Revolutionary War after he moved to the Yadkin river region.

    Abraham's movements: 1766 in NC; 1774 in Rowan CO, NC; 1783 in Burke CO, NC then to Washington Co, TN (Sinking Creek); 1809 to 1821 in White Co, TN and later to Hickman and Perry Cos, TN.

    He married Elizabeth who died. They had the following children:

    John DENTON Elizabeth "Bettie" DENTON

    He also married Mourning HOGG in 1766. Mourning HOGG was born in 1750. She died in Monroe CO, TN.

    They had the following children:

    Rev. Isaac DENTON Sarah "Sally" DENTON Nancy M. DENTON Samuel DENTON Abraham DENTON IV Jeremiah "Big Jerry" DENTON Margaret "Peggy" DENTON Elijah DENTON Agnes DENTON Martha DENTON


    Comments (Abraham Denton, III b. 0___ 1726 Orange Co.,NY d. 0___ 1828 Obion Co.,TN,intestate): In my research, I have found that the person(S) who perpetrated the mistake that Abraham Denton 111 died in Obion county were indeed mistaken. He was very elderly when he appears in 1820 census of Perry county and on the petition to form Perry county. He moved there after selling his farm in white County in 1817. I have read the records that Edith Whitley used and they omit Perry County and make the claim of Obion. This needs to be changed . Researchers have scoured Obion for some trace to no avail. It was formed later than Perry,as well.

    According to my records, one of my oldest ancestors is Thomas Townsend who was married to Anephilda Watson, although I have the name spelled as Anphileda I think they are the same. The only child I had information on was Didama Townsend who was born on November 18, 1765 and died in 1844. She married Jesse Webb Sr. in Pittsylvania, VA and they had 11 children. Does any of this agree with your records? Do you have any information on the ancestors of Thomas or Anephilda? I have that Thomas was born in Scotland in 1723 and died in 1796.

  1. 144.  Gamaliel Earle was born ~ 1710, (Granville County, North Carolina Colony); died 0___ 1775, Bute County, North Carolina.

    Other Events:

    • Occupation: Tobacco Planter
    • Possessions: 15 May 1761; Ready Branch of Smith Creek, Granville County, North Carolina Colony

    Notes:

    Notes for GAMALIEL EARLE:
    From Jim Earles, per Joe W. Stout:
    Gamaliel immigrated to Brunswick County in the Virginia Colony from England. In the early 1740's the family moved across the Roanoke River to Granville County, NC but lived very near the border and over the years family members also owned land &, at various times, lived on the Virginia side.

    The surname was clearly Earle upon arrival from England but is most often recorded as Earles or Earls and sometimes as Earl, Erle, Erls, Url, Urls, Yearl, & Yearls. For example, Warren County records for the 1782 marriage of Obediah & Joyce Cunningham show the name as Urls.

    ****************************************************************************
    Gamaliel Earle was likely born in England, migrating to the Virginia Colony about 1735, either shortly before or just after he married Martha. This supposition is based on his living near a John Earle who also arrived about 1735 and settled in Brunswick County, VA, on the north side of the Roanoke River.

    John Earle emigrated from England, settled in Virginia, made a crop of tobacco, then sent back to England for his fiancee, Mary Elizabeth Watts (a niece of Sir Isaac Watts), and boarded the ship to marry her before she disembarked. Records show John Earle was a tobacco planter on Allen's Creek where it joins the Roanoke River in what is now Mecklenburge County, VA, just across the river from where Gamaliel and Martha were living at that time. Following deaths of John & Mary, their son, John Earl, moved his wife Agness and three children across the Roanoke to Granville County in 1765 and located less than 15 miles southwest of where Gamaliel was living.

    The spelling of the name was Earle when they first arrived from England, but numerous clerks came up with spellings ranging from Earle to Eril, Erle, Earls, Erls, Urls, Yearls, and Early. Various branches of the family wound up with different spellings.

    There are traditions in a number of families who descend from Gamaliel stating there is a relationship with the John Earle family of Somerset, England, that immigrated to what is now Westmoreland County, VA, in the early 1640's. One researcher has traced that family back to Lord of Erleigh in Berkshire in the year 1000. The Westmoreland Co. John Earle family is well documented and Gamaliel does not appear to be a direct descendant. However, there likely is a relationship, although it may be a few generations back. By the 16th Century there were a large number of Earle families in the Southern England Counties of Surry, Sussex, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, and Somerset.

    *******************************************************************************

    Gamaliel & Martha lived in Granville County, NC, near the Virginia border. They lived in the Fishing Creek District in 1749, and William Eaton's 1759 Will mentions Gamaliel Earles living on his land. Gamaliel and his sons were tobacco planters; and on 15 May 1761 he purchased 493 acres located on both sides of Ready Branch of Smith Creek in Granville County. He sold the same parcel on 23 February 1762. Gamaliel and his son, William, are listed in the1762 Smith Creek District tax record list and Gamaliel is identified as insolvent (most likely because he had sold the land being taxed). Gamaliel paid Granville County taxes in 1769 & 1771, and on 07 Jan 1772 paid for 40 ac in Bute County on the West side of Henderson's Swamp Creek. On 19 Aug 1772, that deed was assigned to Williams Earles. Gamaliel purchased wedges at an estate auction 11 Jan 1773, but he is not on later tax lists and probably died before 1775. Martha is not listed on the 1762 land sale deed, but that apparently was
    not a requirement in North Carolina. However, she may have died before 1770.

    As noted above, William Earles was living with Gamaliel Earle in 1762 & in 1772 Gamaliel assigned the Bute County land to him. William later assigned that land to Obediah Earls, who sold the 40 acres on 22 Dec 1792. William Earl paid Bute County Taxes in 1766, bought 100 acres in 1772 and sold that land in 1777. He paid Warren County taxes in 1779 & 1781. In 1781, he is listed as owing 136 shillings with 100 shillings to be allowed for insolvent mistakes, (which means he probably moved before the 1791 tax date). William Earles paid taxes in Montgomery County, NC, in 1782 and was on the 1790 census list for that county. In 1800 he was on the Rutherford County census list and in 1803 his Will was probated in Rutherford County.

    Granville, Bute, & Warren counties NC, and Mecklenburg Co., VA, real estate, tax, census, and marriage records also list Thomas, Elisha, James,

    William Sparkman's wife was Anna Gardner (?-1777), daughter of Martin Gardner and Anna (--). In Martin Gardner's 1760 Bertie Co., NC will, he bequeathed his land to his 3 daughters, Anna, Ann, and Jane, and the Bertie Co. deeds show these 3 tracts of land, each "1/3 part of land which Martin Gardner gave his 3 daughters," in the possession of the Gardner girls' husbands (William Sparkman, Jonathan Standley, and James Purvis, respectively) after 1760. When Ann (Gardner) Standley wrote her will, she mentioned her sister, Anna (Gardner) Sparkman.

    I'm descended from Anna (Gardner) Sparkman's brother James, and I have lots of info on these Gardners that I'd be happy to share. If you're interested, please email me directly with your regular postal address.

    1700-1774

    Capt. Abraham II DENTON was born in 1700 in Hemstead, NY. Baptized on 12 Aug 1774. Died in 1774 in Shenandoah CO, VA. His will was presented August 12, 1774. He died and is buried at Tom's Brook Plantation in Shenandoah CO, VA (photo of present Tom's Brook below).

    .

    Abraham was a Captain in the French and Indian War in the Provincial Army of 1766.

    Abraham, according to sources in Orange CO, NY, had some problems with local law and soon after left the county for a new home in the Shenandoah County of Virginia. This was in 1729 or 1730. Thus started the move westward, for his sons each moved in different directions into the frontier.

    From The Tennessee Valley Historical Review: "Abraham Denton, Junior, became involved with the law in New York in about 1729-30. He, along with some close relatives, left that state and headed for Virginia, crossing the eastern part of Pennsylvania and the northwestern part of Maryland. In the Valley of Virginia, then Orange County (later Augusta County) and the upper Virginia Valley, (Frederick, later Dunmore, and still later Shenandoah County) we find Abraham and his family. Also about the same time, Jonas Denton and others had reached the Virginia country. Samuel, Robert, James and John Denton begin to appear in the same general locality. The deeds in Frederick County clearly prove that the Dentons were there as early as 1755 and became prominent citizens."

    Abraham left a deed dated August 12, 1774 which was signed by Mary Denton Little. Dorothy Clock (Clark) Elizabeth Smith and Mary Pareson (Pearson) made their marks.

    He married Mary O'DELL in 1725 in Orange CO, NY. Mary O'DELL was born in 1702 in Woodstock, VA.Abraham's will was written August 12, 1774 and probated September 27, 1774 in Shenandoah CO, VA. Died in 1779 in Shenandoah, VA. Will book A, page 200, Woodstock Shenandoah CO, VA pgs. 228-229. Administration and inventory of estate and apportionment. Heirs: Elizabeth Smith, Hannah Smith and Daridea Clock (Clark). These were probably Mary's sisters who took care of her in her old age as her children had already moved on by the time her husband died.

    They had the following children:

    Joseph DENTON
    Isaac DENTON Sr.
    Samuel DENTON

    The expert on Gideon Hogg is Lavelle Cox Hogg of Portales, New Mexico......this is her line and she has years of research behind her.

    Helen, have you researched your JOHNSON line?

    The data I have on Gideon Hogg is as follows:

    *Gideon Hogg was in Goochland Co., VA as early as 1737. In 1748, he was a witness to the Will of Robert Burton in Goochland Co., VA.

    David --

    I had a moment, so I started into my "digging" into the Hogg data.......

    In 2011 -- a DNA test matched Gideon with the JOHN HOGG of New Kent, Virginia (more on that later)

    One source for Gideon comes from the Heritage of Caswell Co, North Carolina (1985) by Janine D. Whitlow, Ed. Hunter Publishing Company, Winston Salem, NC

    There was a DNA project for the Hogg's -- http:/hdhdata.org/hoggdna/families.html -- I don't know if that site is still there

    Do you have the Will of Gideon Hogg? If not I do -- it is in Book C page 26 Caswell County, NC -- it was proved in 1793 in open Court by the Oath of Henry Baldwin........his son Andrew (although not mentioned in the Will) is listed as my son Andrew to be Executor (along with Gideon's wife Judith)

    It was a handwritten Will -- on the 7th Nov 1790 in the presence of Richard Cloe; Nicholas Cloe; and Henry Baldwin

    It also appears, Gideon was married prior to his marriage to Judith --

    More later --

    David --

    Don't get too excited -- I am going to have to "dig" to find my Hogg material -- it's been over 20 years since I have worked on the lines --

    I started work on them in the 1960's -- no computer's -- just library work....I'm sure this was before you were a tinkle in your parents eyes (ha)

    I do recognize the names -- I think we have the Denton lines in common.... If I recall (and it's doubtful), I "think" the HOGG lines originated in Virginia -- then spread out to the South Carolina and Georgia areas.

    I like what you have done for your presentation --

    The reason I was documenting the Hogg lines was due to my Grandfather's sister (Aneta Boss) who married a Hogg -- it took me 15 years to find the William Hogg who was her son -- but find him I did -- we had constant contact until he passed -- I am still in contact with his daughters.

    I know -- too much information -- sorry about that.

    I don't know if the Hogg Society is still in existence -- but you might google it to check -- the original starters of the Society have passed -- but I would bet one of the daughter's has continued it....and have probably put in on line (just a thought)......it originated out of Texas back in the 60's.

    Keep in touch -- I will try to get to "that stuff" once the New Year has passed and I can "dig".......

    Hang in there -

    and ...

    Gideon may have had a marriage prior to his marriage to Judith --

    The 1786 State Census for North Carolina shows him as being OVER 60 -- which would put his birth as early as 1720 -- *Some Hogg researchers have his birth 1712-1715

    Gideon Hogg was in Goochland, VA as early as 1737. In 1748, he was a witness to the Will of ROBERT BURTON (1687-30 Mar 1748) in Goochland. *Robert Burton married Priscella Farrars (daughter of William Farrars and Priscella Baugh)

    In the 1786 Orange Co, NC Census which listed Gideon Hogg, also listed PRISCELLA BURTON; NOEL BURTON -- *In 1748 -- Gideon Hogg had a number of Burton's and Farrars around him on the Tax list.

    From 1737 to 1770 -- Gideon had land entries in VIRGINIA -- in 1793 -- he had 400 acres on the branches of Rutledge Creek beginning where his Mill path and JOHN YATES path forks...

    More research has been done since this list was made back in 2011 -- but this is the list I found so I am passing it on:

    Children of Gideon Hogg and Judith: *bare data

    1- John Hogg (B-@1745 VA)
    2- William Hogg (B-@1747 VA) -- married 1768 Naomi Gibson -- *there is data he M2- Nancy Gray
    3- Elizabeth Hogg (no data) -- married --- Thomas
    4- Agnes Hogg (no data)
    5- Ann Hogg (B-@1751 VA) -- married Joseph Denton
    6-Mourning Hogg (B-@1752 VA) -- married Abraham Denton
    7- Gideon Hogg (B-@1755 VA) -- married Mary ----
    8- Judith Hogg (*also listed as India Judith) (B-1759 NC;D-1845 KY) -- married John Gibson
    9- Rebecca Hogg (B-1760 NC) -- married William Shelton, JR *1803 moved to KY
    10- Andrew Hogg (B-1762 NC;D-19 Jul 1838 KY) -- married Alley Murray *Executor on Gideon's Will
    11- Mary Hogg (B-1765 NC; D- after 1850 ARK) -- married William Yates, JR

    *Note: this is old material -- many of the @'s have now been filled in and proved --

    The DAR accepted Gideon Hogg SR for Patriotic Service...he is shown in the Revolutionary Claims -- Vol III page 761
    Andrew Hogg was also accepted by the DAR

    You might contact your local DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) to see what they have on file. There is normally a Chapter close by that can be of help.

    More in next e-mail -- hope this was helpful -- you probably already had this -- but just in case I sent it....

I have advice from several sources that Pitman was probably her name but have no "proof" so must add the question...Recently received a letter from another descendant of Gideon Hogg who was quite thrilled to see the Pitman name as her husband, a descendant of Gideon and Judith carries a middle name of Pitman and no one knew where it had come from. Just another clue but it all helps."

    3 Oct. 1768: John Ward of Halifax Co. to Robert Ward of same, ¹45 Virginia, 133a. part of 20 Apr. 1745 David Ward patent jng. Beaverdam [Swamp], Middleton, Bryants Branch. John Ward, Elizabeth Ward. Wit: David (x) Ward, Nathan Pitman, Isom Pitman.

    "In the Bladen C., N.C. records of deeds (pre-Robeson Co.), the first Pitman to take up land appears to have been Thomas Pitman in 1768. He is listed as being from Halifax Co., N.C. Shortly thereafter, Isham Pitman also bought land and is listed as being from Halifax C. It seems that the lands that these men relinquished in Halifax C. upon moving to Bladen Co. were the lands originally held by Thomas Pitman (III) before his death and before Halifax Co. was created from Edgecombe Co. Isham was a witness to Thomas' purchase Lott was a witness to Isham's purchase. We know that Thomas and Lott were sons of Thomas from his will and it seems that several others were taking up land at or about the same time, in the same vicinity (present south Robeson Co., near Fairmont, N.C.). On Oct. 23, 1782, Nathan, Isham, & Newitt all bought practically adjoining properties which, on the surface, would indicate some relationship. On Nov. 11 & 12, 1779, Lott, Joel, Newitt, and Hardy all took up practically adjoining lands on Hogg Swamp which, again, would indicate some type of relationship. From local records, we know that Isham Pitman was born in 1728 and died in 1825 and I am assuming that the others were in the same neighborhood of age considering when they died ... Nathan, 1804, Newitt, 1787, Lott, 1790. From this scantiest of information, the conclusion has been drawn that these persons were brothers and all descended from the Edgecombe Co. family. If you are able to find absolute lineage, I, along with many others, will be most happy." James Guthrie, Lumberton, N.C., 1984

    LWT:

    In the name of God Amen, I Nathan Pitman of the state of North Carolina and the county of Robeson being weak of body but of perfect sound mind and memory do make and ordain this my last will and testament in the manner and form following, viz:

    Third it is my will and desire that all my personal estate be equally divided between all my sons and daughters hereafter named (to wit) Nathan Pitman, Newit Pitman, James Pitman, Robert Pitman, Jesse Pitman, Samuel Pitman, Temperance Pitman, and Elizabeth Pitman and I do appoint my sons Levi Pitman and Noel Pitman executors to this my last will and testament, in witness whereof I set my hand and seal this 17 April 1799.

    Hello,

    I don't believe that Thomas Townsend was born in SC. I am inclined to believe he was born in VA and was probably the son of Light TOWNSEND who married Elizabeth ??. This is based on the fact that our Thomas TOWNSEND was born ca. 1732 in VA and died in 1796 in SC. His wife Anaphilda WATSON was born ca. 1732 in Hanover Co. VA (we believe) and her father was John WATSON who owned land on Cherry Stone Creek in Pittsylvania Co. VA and died in 1801. There are deed records which place Thomas TOWNSEND on property adjacent to John WATSON which is on Cherry Stone Creek and in John WATSON's will he names his daughter Anaphilda (sic) Townsend. Thomas TOWNSEND and Anaphilda (WATSON) Townsend named one of their sons Light TOWNSEND. We feel confident that this Thomas TOWNSEND was a brother to Light TOWNSEND who married Delilah Pouncey. However we have not yet (so far as I know) documented the ancestry of our Thomas TOWNSEND who married Anaphilda WATSON.

    We can place this Thomas TOWNSEND in Halifax/Pittsylvania County with land on CherryStone Creek in the late 1750's. It would be interesting to see if there has been any more documentation discovered regarding the ancestry of this TOWNSEND family.




    Thomas married Anephilda Watson (Hanover County, Virginia). Anephilda (daughter of John Watson and unnamed spouse) was born 0___ 1735, Hanover County, Virginia; died 0___ 1818, Kentucky. [Group Sheet]


  16. 239.  Anephilda Watson was born 0___ 1735, Hanover County, Virginia (daughter of John Watson and unnamed spouse); died 0___ 1818, Kentucky.
