    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:

    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.

    Other Events:

    • Probate: 0Feb 1791, Hyde County, North Carolina

    Notes:

    Abstracted from "Hyde County Historical Journal",Vol.8,No.2,Fall 1984;


    "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 for CALEB SWINDELL: Caleb SWINDLE Sr. was born between 1738 and 1742 in Albemarie, Hyde Co., North Carolina. He signed a will on 26 Nov 1790. He died about 1791in Hyde Co., North Carolina.

    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.

    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

    William Fisher was the second son by the second wife of John Fisher (Elizabeth). He was born in Rutherford County,North Carolina, and he moved to White County, Tennessee, around 1809. He settled across the Caney Fork River from where his father, John, had settled in what is now DeKalb County, Tennessee. He and his wife, Nancy Chisam Fisher, spent the remainder of their lives on the homestead at the base of Hickory Nut Mountain. They raised nine children there.

    The genealogical data of the Nicholas Fisher family compiled by E.E.(Elisha Edmond) Webb in December, 1930, indicates that William and his wife Nancy were buried in the Fisher Grave Yard in present day DeKalb County, Tennessee. There do not appear to be markers for their graves.

    Recently, while tracking down one of the many Johns, I ran across the following information in the records of Madison Co, AL.

    Letters of Administration for the estate of one John Chisolm were issued to a Lazarus Vann on 8/16/1830. These letters were issued with the consent of the widow, Sarah. John died intestate. Filtering thru the notes and letters, I found the heirs to be: Sarah (widow), John Chisolm Jr., William Chisolm Sr, Isham Pullen, Alfred Marrow, Andrew Burnside, and Nancy Fisher. Nancy Fisher, and John Chisum had a letter written from White Co, Tn to the judge of probate requesting that slaves Hannah (old woman) and Dolly (girl), part of the estate of John Chisolm, be sold and the proceeds of the sale be divided among the heirs. A LeRoy Chisum, who apparently lived in Madison Co, Al attached his concurrence. (Sarah, Nancy, and LeRoy can not write). LeRoy's concurrence is dated April or Aug. 18, 1832. One William L. Chisam charged the estate 2.00 for bringing the slaves to Huntsville on 7/2/1832. Around this time, Sarah, the widow, had a letter written to the judge of probate asking that the judge provide her with the status of the settlement of the estate, stating that she had not received a single penny from the estate of her husband and that she had sent a letter to the administrator but not heard from him. She also stated that her husband had promised that she would be able to keep the slaves to "wate" on her during her old age. Soon after the letter was received, the judge ordered the sherriff to have Mr Van bring all records of the estate to court. No mention of the disposition or fate of Mr Vann is mentioned. I recoginized this John to be "Blind John" because several years ago I had read of his daughter's troubles in applying for his Revoloutionary War Pension.

    "Blind John" is listed, in most accounts, as having died in Perry Co, AL but it is apparent he died in Madison Co, AL It could be that he was a resident of Perry Co and happened to die in Madison Co. That may be why $2.00 was charged to bring the slaves to Huntsville. No records I have seen show the first names of John's son in laws, Burnside and Pullen. I think this record in Madison Co makes those name clear. Alfred Marrow may be another son in law.

    The file in Madison Co, AL has the estate sale, listing all property sold and to whom. There are also several slips of paper where Mr Vann made charges to the estate for "services" and one page which was faded and unreadable.

    There was no charge for transportation of the body so I assume John was buried in Madison Co or someone transported his body free of charge to "wherever". There is a charge of $2.00 for a casket.
    Hope this is helpful to you "Blind John" folks. BTW the spelling of the name Chisolm is all over the lot. Chisolm,Chisum,Chism,Chisam,etc. Seems that none could read or write.

    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.

    A deed written in 1772 shows John, Sr. as deceased, actual death date not known.

    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

    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.

    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
    Samuel DENTON
    Abraham DENTON IV
    Jeremiah "Big Jerry" DENTON

    end of profile

    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.

    “Some of the leaders, reflecting that congress might decline to accept the territory ceded, and remembering that the constitution of North Carolina had made provisions for a future state within her limits on the western side of the Alleghanies, conceived the idea of forming a new state at once and forstalling the carrying out of the cessation programme,

    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
    Samuel DENTON
    Abraham DENTON IV
    Jeremiah "Big Jerry" 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.

    John Chisholm was the oldest son of David and Ann Chisholm and was born about 1730 in Hanover Co. VA. His marriage to Sarah Harris produced 12 Chism children: William, Rachel, Polly, "Hickory John", Betsy, Elisha, Elijah, Gatewood, Frances, Sarah, Nancy, James. I didn't realize I mistyped the date their son William Chisholm married Ann Praytor about 1793 -- not 1703. I'm still looking for parents of Sarah Harris and of Mary Middleton, who married 1760 William Praytor in SC. Does your line connect to these family surnames? Audrey

    Recently, while tracking down one of the many Johns, I ran across the following information in the records of Madison Co, AL.

    Letters of Administration for the estate of one John Chisolm were issued to a Lazarus Vann on 8/16/1830. These letters were issued with the consent of the widow, Sarah. John died intestate.

    Filtering thru the notes and letters, I found the heirs to be: Sarah (widow), John Chisolm Jr., William Chisolm Sr, Isham Pullen, Alfred Marrow, Andrew Burnside, and Nancy Fisher. Nancy Fisher, and John Chisum had a letter written from White Co, Tn to the judge of probate requesting that slaves Hannah (old woman) and Dolly (girl), part of the estate of John Chisolm, be sold and the proceeds of the sale be divided among the heirs.

    A LeRoy Chisum, who apparently lived in Madison Co, Al attached his concurrence. (Sarah, Nancy, and LeRoy can not write). LeRoy's concurrence is dated April or Aug. 18, 1832. One William L. Chisam charged the estate 2.00 for bringing the slaves to Huntsville on 7/2/1832. Around this time, Sarah, the widow, had a letter written to the judge of probate asking that the judge provide her with the status of the settlement of the estate, stating that she had not received a single penny from the estate of her husband and that she had sent a letter to the administrator but not heard from him. She also stated that her husband had promised that she would be able to keep the slaves to "wate" on her during her old age.

    Soon after the letter was received, the judge ordered the sherriff to have Mr Van bring all records of the estate to court. No mention of the disposition or fate of Mr Vann is mentioned. I recoginized this John to be "Blind John" because several years ago I had read of his daughter's troubles in applying for his Revoloutionary War Pension.

    "Blind John" is listed, in most accounts, as having died in Perry Co, AL but it is apparent he died in Madison Co, AL It could be that he was a resident of Perry Co and happened to die in Madison Co. That may be why $2.00 was charged to bring the slaves to Huntsville. No records I have seen show the first names of John's son in laws, Burnside and Pullen. I think this record in Madison Co makes those name clear. Alfred Marrow may be another son in law.

    The file in Madison Co, AL has the estate sale, listing all property sold and to whom. There are also several slips of paper where Mr Vann made charges to the estate for "services" and one page which was faded and unreadable.

    There was no charge for transportation of the body so I assume John was buried in Madison Co or someone transported his body free of charge to "wherever". There is a charge of $2.00 for a casket.

    Hope this is helpful to you "Blind John" folks. BTW the spelling of the name Chisolm is all over the lot. Chisolm,Chisum,Chism,Chisam,etc. Seems that none could read or write.

    I have a tree at ancestry.com. Here is the link:

    My Grandmother was Clara Emmalynn Chisam from her you can follow the Chisam line to Overton (and his brothers) and beyond. As you will see in the tree,Overton, John and Preston Chisam (all brothers) married the three Hash sisters Celia, Matilda and Cynthia respectively.

    I have been told by other researchers that at the time the two families properties were adjacent to each other.

    There has been some controversy over the lineage of John “Blind John” Chisholm. Some say he descended from David and Adam Chisholm but that is another John Chisholm. There were so many John Chisholm’s that it is easy to muddle the lines. I’m certain of my research with Richard Cheesome (various spellings) being the patriarch of my clan lineage.

    If for any reason this doesn’t give you the information you seek then let me know.

    I have seen the sight you referenced and it looks like an old email of mine is with Mary Elizabeth Spencer. My Hennessee/Spencer line is also detailed in my tree with Mary Spencer marrying James Walker (in Georgia) and I have lots of other Walkers as well.

    Happy New Year to you too!

    It is a small world. If I can't find my ancestors in the normal way, I tend to go up and see if there is a downward connection. In my family notes I had written:

    "I haven’t been able to prove the parents of Sarah. A number of years ago, another researcher reported her as the daughter of James and Sarah Harris of St. Martin’s Parish, Virginia.
    27 April 1766 James and Sarah Harris of St. Martin's Parish, Louisa County, Virginia [formerly Hanover County] lived on a branch of Long Creek beside Waddy, Pope, Marks, Jones and Sharp – selling this property 11 August 1766 [Louisa County Deeds 1759-1774 by Davis]

    One line that has been well researched from immigrants Capt. Thomas and Adria Harris was through their son Robert Harris who married Mary Clairborn; and their grandson William and Temperance Harris. William and Temperance Harris had children: Benjamin, Robert, William, Jr., John, James and Jemima. Several members of this family are found in the records of the Hanover County area."

    I'm trying to prove or disprove my Samuel Howell, whose sons, David and Reece, settled in Lincoln County, TN is the same man as the Rev. Samuel Howell.

    If I find a good lead, will let you know.

    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:

    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:

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

    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:

    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.

    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:
    *I have more data, but I will need to search for it's binder.


    *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.

    From 1737 to 1770 Gideon Hogg had land entries in VA; on 6 Dec 1761, he had 135 acres in Orange Co., NC.....in 1793, he had 400 acres on the branches of Rutledge Creek beginning where his mill path and Jonathan Yates path forks.

    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:

    First I give, bequeath and devise to my son Sampson Pitman one hundred and ninety nine acres of land whereon he now lives.

    Second I give, bequeath and devise to my sons Levi and Noel Pitman four hundred acres of land whereon I now live and also two acres including the grist mill and saw mill.

    Notes:

    "The Fisher Line", Compiled by Margaret Fisher and Betty Fisher Cox, p. 1;

    "Nicholas Fisher, ancestor of thousands of descendants, left a legacy of family tradition that as been handed down through the generations of Fishers. This family tradition includes a mystery surrounding the land of his nativity. Was he born in America, or was he "Black Dutch"? This was a name from the area around the Rhine River valley that later became a part of Germany. The immigrants would do down the Rhine to Holland where they would sail for the new world, usually setting in Pennsylvania. Many of them later moved southward to Maryland and Virginia because of the harsh winters in Pennsylvania, and the availability of land. From Tennessee to west Kentucky the family tradition persists that Nicholas was Black Dutch.

    In Reply to: Re: John C. Cooksey B. 1813 Tennesee by Janelle Fisher Williams of 1858

    Janelle,

    If you refer to the wife of Nicholas Fisher, who died in Greenville, SC in 1794...
    Yes, he is associated with the Cookseys in a smuch as there is a close family association. Allied families are Cooksey, Tubb, McVey, etc. And yes, our John C. Cooksey of Warren Co. Tn/Gonzales/Lampasas co, Tx. is from the Cookseys who were from Greenville, SC.

    The Fisher family historians make Nicholas' wife Elizabeth a Cooksey, although I know of no documentation or proof.

    A researchers dilemna:

    Nicholas lists a daughter Sally Cooksey on his will. This has puzzled me for some time. We don't know for certain which Cooksey this Sally was married to. Best candidates are Cornelius Cooksey, Josiah and William Cooksey. Since Josiah seems to have been widowed (divorced ?) by 1800, and re-married to Charity by 1801, he may not be the best candidate.

    We find a Sally Cooksey on the roll of church members for Enoree Baptist church in Greenville for 1801-1802, which indicates, if this is the same Sally, that Josiah is not the best choice for her husband. It would appear that Cornelius is a good choice. Anyone have other ideas?

    Virtually nothing is known of the William Cooksey of Greenville Co.

    Another possible candidate would be Andrew Cooksey Sr., although he would have been born about the same time as old Nicholas. By the way, Cornelius Cooksey is within a few doors of Nicholas Fisher on the 1790 census. The other associated Cookseys are in Edgefield County in 1790.

    Surname: Goodson

    This interesting surname is a metronymic form of the Middle English female given name "Godeve", from the old English pre 7th Century personal name "Godgifu", composed of the elements "god" meaning good or god plus "gifu" a gift. The personal name may also be Godith from the old English "Godguth", "god" meaning good or god plus "guth" a battle. "Godit" (without surname), appears in the Rotuli Chartarum in 1199 and "Godith", is noted in the 1206 Curia Regis Rolls of Bedfordshire.

    In the modern idiom the surname can be found in several spellings including Goodison, Gooderson, Goodinson and Goodson.

    The surname is first recorded in the early half of the 14th Century (see below). Robert Guditson and John Godyeson are registered in the 1379 Poll Tax Returns of Yorkshire. On July 3rd 1680, John, son of Barnard and Lydia Goodison was christened at St. Mary Whitechapel Stepney.

    The marriage of Benjamin Goodison and Sarah Cooper took place at St. Bride, Fleet St., London on August 13th 1723.

    William Goodison married Elizabeth Harris on January 5th 1632, at St. George's Church, Hanover Square, Westminster.

    A coat of arms granted to the family consists of a paly of six, silver and red, and on a blue chief three silver mullets. On the crest is a peacock's head proper.

    The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Nicholas Godithson, which was dated 1332, in the "Subsidy Rolls of Cumberland", during the reign of King Edward 111, known as "The Father of the Navy", 1327 - 1377.

    Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

    the information on eliza rushing as being the wife of edward goodson is on the internet. gedhtree version 1.04 by gary welker. it stated that eliza rushing is the daughter of mathew rushing sr. i have been told that if a person who is the breadwinner of a family and he dies, his children are orphans, and the mother is still living. as in the case of my gggrandfather jesse rushing died in 1867, leaving 4 children. the courts declared them orphans, even though their mother was still living. i have several legal documents stating this. i can only find one instance where edward goodson and mathew rushing received received a land grant.

    In Reply to: Re: Mathew and Francis Rushing of Edgecombe by Ira Rushing of 2276


    Ira: once again, you impress me. Thank you for sharing. In VIRGINIA COLONIAL ABSTRACTS, Vol. 13. Charles City County Court Records. 1685. by Beverly Fleet. page 3. Abstract. "Jno Gallose hath turned Mathew Russhin out of doores the Orph'n of Mathew Russhin dec'ed and otherwise evilly intreated him". At orphans request John Wallis app'd guardian. Gallose seems to have been the second husband of Mathew Senior's widow. I assumed that Wallis was married at the time.

    The Goodson Family states that Edward Goodson married Eliza Rushin(g). If so, that may be the Mathew Junior/ Ed. Goodson connection. By the way, Arthur Allen recorded his survey of Matt/Eds Isle of Wight property on 10 April 1707. English Duplicates of Lost Virginia Records. Gen. Pub. Co., 1981. So they were there before 1714.

    I knew that the name of the wives of Wallis and Munford was Sarah. I did not know they were the same woman. If you look up the Munford family on the internet I think you will find that the maiden name of Sarah was Wyatt. It may have had an "e" on the end.

    Who was Randal Mattux? In Charles City County Court Orders ( at a Court holden at Westopher, 10 Nov 1691), "Clerk to deliver to Randal Mattux his bond of Russhin's estate"
    In a twenty or thirty year old query bulletin called THE NORTH CAROLINIAN, one writer in wrote "William McKinne, c1725-1793, lived in that part of Dobbs Co. which became Wayne Co. He was undoubtedly the son of Mary Rushing Mckinne. (Son or grandson of Barnaby Mackenie, neighbor of Mat Rushing???) .

    Thanks again, keep in touch................. John

    "Cavaliers & Pioneers", p. 342, by Nugent;

    Came to America, November 28, 1656, sponsored by William Blackey. Blackey received 1000 acres of land in New Kent County, Virginia, on the east side of Little Queen's Creek: running by land patented by M. Thomas Vause, to land of William Cox, transportation of 20 persons, among whom was Edward Goodson

    A Rushing Timeline...

    1661- 1662 Mathew Rushing is on a Jury Panel in Charles City County, Virginia. This sets the time frame for the first American mainland Rushing records.

    1667 James Russhin acquires an indenture (debt or purchase) in New Kent County, Virginia.

    1679 William Russhin dies and leaves an estate to his orphan named Mathew Russhin in Charles City County, Virginia

    1690 Mathew Russhin comes of age and claims his fathers estate.

    1714 Mathew Russin and Edward Goodson given a Virginia 'Headrights' land grant by the Royal governor of Virginia. This Edward Goodson has many land dealings with Matthew Rushing. "Matthew Rushing and wife Elizabeth" is how he diligently spelled his name in all records prepared by him or his lawyer, but in abstracts his last name is spelled Ruskin or Russin and often the second t dropped from his first name.

    1742 David Russan comes to Virginia aboard the ship Duke of Cumberland from Bristol, England. Could one of the lines we attribute to the Carolina Rushings be from him?

    1750's The Rushing surname with some variations in spelling begin to appear in Anson County, North Carolina land records. William appears to be one of the first names.

    1790 At a time when there were only eight hundred families enumerated in the Fayette district of Anson County, North Carolina fifteen of them are Rushings. The 1790 Virginia Census is lost but the Rushing surname appears to be gone from Virginia by this time.

    2005/6 seven Rushings from the USA and from widely varied unconnected lines of the U.S. surname Rushing and one Rushen from England test with DNA showing that the we all share a common genetic ancestor. This proves the origins of this Rushen from England and the Rushings in the USA are the same and that most, if not all, U.S. Rushings have a common ancestor. The sample includes known descendants of the North Carolina and South Carolina Rushings that went to Alabama.
