    Subject: [REUBENROBERTS] Anderson County, TN - Notes regarding Thomas Roberts,William Roberts, and Moses Roberts
    Date: Mon, 31 Oct 2011 15:16:47 -0400 (EDT)

    Hello to my fellow Reuben Roberts Researchers -- this message board has been very quiet for some time now..........

    After having spent considerable time researching the WillIam Roberts line in Warren County, TN, a few months back I began to concentrate my efforts looking into Reuben Roberts and family in Anderson County, TN (1800 - 1817). I live in Anderson County and find myself fortunate to have easier access to information than many researchers as I am closer to the courthouse and the East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville. One of the things I was hoping to accomplish is to identify where Reuben & family lived while in Anderson County. I am getting very close but still need to complete a few title searches before I can confirm the location.

    In doing this research I have found a couple of references to members of Reuben's family and of his in-laws, the Asher/Ashurst families. These tidbits prompt me to post this message in an effort to share some of what I've found and see if others have input or comments that will benefit us all.

    I. Thomas Roberts -- In looking at some of the 1999 posts on this board there was a bit of discussion around Thomas Roberts - who he was married to, did he move on to Iowa, etc? Per exchange of notes posted in May through June 1999 from Sheryl Fischer and Ken Robertson, I'm not sure if these issues were ever clarified.

    There is an Anderson County Deed dated 19 October 1830 from Thomas Roberts to Richard Andrews witnessed by Reuben Roberts and John Roberts. This was apparently done as a result Thomas leaving his wife Elizabeth and children and his subsequent move to White County (See Chapter LXIV - Private Acts Passed at the First Session of the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, 1833. See also "Tennessee Divorces 1797 - 1858" , Taken from 750 Legislative Petitions and Acts, by Bamman and Spero. Richard Andrews was married to Martha Ashurst, daughter of John Ashurst, who was a brother of Reuben Roberts wife Milly (i.e., Martha Andrews/Ashurst was a first cousin to Thomas Roberts).

    Question - Could this earlier marriage of Thomas Roberts to Elizabeth Roberts answer some of the questions raised in 1999? The divorce mentions children of the marriage - does anyone have any information on them? The last name of Elizabeth?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    II. William Roberts - There is another Anderson County deed dated 21 September 1831 naming William Roberts and Thomas Roberts as heirs of John Ashurst to Daniel Daugherty for the land of of the estate of the recently deceased John Ashurst.

    “This Indenture made the 21st day of September in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight hundred and Thirty One between William Roberts & Thomas Roberts of the Countys of Warren and also of the County of White and State of Tennessee of the one part and Daniel Daugherty of the County of Anderson and State aforesaid of the other part. Witnesseth that the said William Roberts & Thomas Roberts for and in consideration of the sum of one Dollar to them in hand paid by the said Daniel Daugherty the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged hath and by these presents doth grant bargain sell and confirm unto the said Daniel Daugherty his heirs and assigns forever the undivided part of Two several tracts of land belonging to the heirs of John Ashurst deceased. We William Roberts & Thomas Roberts being heirs of the said John Ashurst deceased at law one tract of One hundred and six acres of land being the land where the said John Ashurst deceased formerly lived {land description follows} …………”

    This deed was witnessed by Joseph M. Ashurst (brother of Martha Andrews) and James Roberts. This deed is significant because it is evidence of the link between the Reuben Roberts/Milly Asher family and William Roberts of Warren County, TN. This William Roberts is named as an heir to John Ashurst (along with Thomas Roberts) and noted as being from Warren County, TN, not White County (Thomas Roberts was living in White County in 1831).

    I am posting a PDF version of this deed at https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6c96c11afadfdc92&sa=356416004#!/?cid=1012221a9857853b&sc=documents&uc=1&id=1012221A9857853B%21110.

    I have updated my previous notes regarding William Roberts to reflect this information in the same site.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    III. Moses Roberts - In looking at the Anderson County deeds I find references to Moses Roberts as living very close to where Reuben was apparently living. Example, The Grantee in the 1831 deed noted above, Daniel Daughtery, is found in the 1830 Anderson County census listed with one household between him and Moses Roberts. This Ashurst land is near where Reuben & clan lived. I have seen notes on the internet (uncornfirmed) and even on this messageboard about Reuben Roberts having a brother named Moses.

    Does anyone have information regarding a brother of Reuben Roberts named Moses?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

    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

    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.

    We find a family in England's records of a William Rushen with several sons, three of which are named William, John and Mathew. They are in parish registers of Clare, Suffolk County, England. The records show slightly different surname spellings among the brothers and sisters from two different sources. The Rushen, Rushin and Rushing surname spellings occur in this family from both sources, the Mormon Church's transcripts and the Anglican Church's transcripts of the Clare church's parish registers. As we know these given names also appear in abundance on the American side of the ocean while others common names of the period that should, do not appear in this family. It would be great to finally prove the kinship of our Virginia William, John and Mathew, could these brothers be the American John and Mathew Rushing? The timeline, ages, migration pattern, spelling variations, and the way the names flow through the family on both sides of the ocean are the same.

    William, Mathew and John Rushen were militiamen for Clare in the Hundred of Risbridge in the year 1638. Sources note that "In 1648 Colchester was put under siege by the Roundheads. On August 28th the Royalists surrendered and the prisoners were marched to the south coast ports, put on boats and sent as slaves to the West Indies. Although history books say the prisoners were allowed to return home on the 29th after taking an oath to support the parliament, deportation of loyalists continued till 1657, the leaders of the loyalists were executed the next day at Colchester (29 Aug. 1648).

    Genetic genealogy (DNA) testing has shown that Peter Rushen of England and several varied United States Rushing family lines share a recent common ancestor (99.96% within 24 generations). Except for obvious non-paternal events all Rushings in the U.S. share a common ancestor and also the genetic "Viking gene" haplogroup I1A.

    A search of P. W. Coldham's extensive works on ship and emigration records did not turn up these names however variations of our surname appear in the various Barbados records long before the first documented arrival of Rushing surname variation appears.

William or Matthew are not found in the Barbados archive but James is clearly found there with some others.

    There is a James Rushen listed as a white British settler in Christ Church Parish, Barbados [James arrived from London, England between 1639 - 1654]. He and his wife Ursala (Maiden name Wathmoll from transcripts of the Barbados marriage records, Volume 1, Jan. 30, 1654) and children Francis and Prudence Rushen disappear from Barbados after 1659. A James Rushin appears in 1667 New Kent County, Virginia with a debt.

    Barbados , settled by the British in 1627, served as a point of origin for many settlers who eventually settled in Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas. As a result, many early American families can trace their origins in the New World first to Barbados. Most of the more than 40,000 original white British settlers left Barbados for the American colonies after the 'Sugar Revolution' of the 1650's.

    A few extremely rich sugar 'Barons' had taken the farmland away from the small cotton and tobacco farmers to plant the more profitable sugar. Cotton and tobacco did not do well in the climate and soil of the island while sugar did. James' surname is spelled Rushen, Rushem and Rushkin in the Barbados records. Could this James also be one of the progenitors of the Rushins, Rushens or Rushings in American Virginia? There is evidence for a James Rushing in 1667 in New Kent County Virginia.

    William and Mathew Rushing of Virginia

    When searching the Virginia archives for variation of the Rushing surname you find the documents on this page. As with any documents some interpretation is necessary. They are presented here so that the reader can find the meanings for themselves. The author's comments are included so another researcher can see how these conclusions were reached. It is twice stated that Mathew is the son of William Russhin and twice stated that he is the orphan of Mathew Russhin.

    Both William and Mathew died abt. 1678, in 1679 the courts order John Galloes, who married the widow of Mathew Rushing, the administrator for Mathew Rushing's estate in 1679 and, separately James Munford is ordered to hold William Russhin's estate away from Sara Wallis who has "unjustly detained" William's son, another Mathew [last names are spelled Russhin] the same year. The confusion comes about in 1685 when the Orphan of Mathew Rushing also petitions the court for a change in guardianship to John Wallis and is put out of the home of John Galloes who is Mathew Rushing's Administrator and Husband of Mathew Rushing's natural mother. So why are they calling him an orphan if his mother is still alive? The 1685 Charles City County, a Virginia record entry answers this, and confuses the kinship. Here he is the orphan of Mathew Rushing, Mathew being the more widely accepted name for Mathew's father [Mrs. Rushing Galloes is deceased by 1685].

    In 1679, Wm Russhin's estate held in escrow by James Munford, Sara Wallis being unable to post a security bond for Wm.'s estate. By 1790 James Munford has died and Wm. Russhin's estate is in the hands of James Munford's widow Sara Munford.

    Matthew Russhin first gains his liberty from Sara Wallis in June, 1690. Then in a separate court action "on motion of Mathew Russhin" Wm Russhin's estate is "set aside and secured" in Mathew Russhin's name in Sept. 1690, from the widow Sara Munford and (James Munford's) children's property. There are two separate Saras and two separate estates established by the court, William and Mathew were contemporary and William's son is also named Mathew? This is unlikely and it is fair to combine the two parents of young Mathew as one Mathew Rushing with a second son named William. The records of ensuing generations in Anson County, NC will then make sense, and the earlier Virginia records do not show a William but there is a Mathew Rushing.

    These documents help establish the time frame of the arrival of the first Rushings in America. Again I must thank Peter Rushen of England and John Thomas Rushing of San Diego, CA for helping me find where to look next. The emigration project continues, if you have any information that might help please write us.
