    Phil:

    We have corresponded before. Have been reviewing dna results lately. I'm Wm. Roberts b. 1765 kit 130762.

    I also match as you do closely to the John Roberts b. 1733/35 of Surry Co NC. As for a possibility that your JAMES 1807 was the son of WM., son of JOHN 1733/35 of Surry, I looked over Earl Roberts extensive research. He's now deceased, desc. of John 1733/35, but he's got a pretty well documentation of that family.. James b. ca 1805 (whom you mentioned is prob the same James as yours who went to White Co. TN) and family all seemed to stay in Grayson Co. Va.. James 1805 children: Lorenzo Dow b. 1831, Joseph 1833, Phoebe 1837, Nancy 1845, Micajah 1846 and Peter
    1849. I don't see any hints of his moving to TN, but I guess it could have happen.

    Now, I descend from Wm. Roberts of Lee Co. Va. With that said, my dna matches are the closest to Earl and other known descendants of John 1733/35 of Surry as yourself, but I'm 99% certain my Wm Roberts did not descend directly from John of Surry. Besides John had a son already named William so my Wm. can't fit in his family. So, in my case, it seems that descendants who we are almost certainly closer related to me (such as yourself most likely) than John of Surry show a MORE DISTANT DNA match??? Go figure. I don't understand it.

    Here's my latest family projections, *not proven of course* with help from others and dna:

    COL. JAMES ROBERTS (Tory/Loyalist leader) of Snow Creek Va. b. ca. 1720s (also had property in Surry Co. NC that was confiscated due to Tory involvement, and likely bro of John Roberts b. 1730s of Surry Co. NC, that you show below)

    Col James issue:

    -CAPT. JAMES ROBERTS b. 1747 moved to Lee Co./Hawkins Co. area, helped raise sister Happy Riddle's children per old Riddle fam. book.
    -CORNELIUS 1749 Russell Co. Va., killed 1788 by Indians (currently awaiting dna results from desc)
    -JESSE ? 1763 of Clay Co. Ky.
    -JOHN 1750 Va, of Buncombe Co. NC
    -HARRIET "HAPPY" b. 1740s m. Wm. Riddle, Tory leader.
    -WILLIAM ROBERTS of Lee Co. Va. b. 1740s (from Henry/Grayson Co Va area) m. Elizabeth Walling, dau. of Elisha Sr.
    -WILLIAM ROBERTS of Lee Co. b. 1765 m. Catherine Rogers, dau. of Doswell.
    -WILLIAM 1788 m. 1 Sarah Walling/2 Sallie Humphries (Wm. moved from Lee Co. Va. to White Co. Tn)
    -JAMES 1807 of White Co. TN (your line)
    - JOSEPH b. 1790s m. Margaret Anderson (my line-stayed in Lee Co. area)

    Anyway, thought I'd share and welcome any comments, especially if anybody can explain the DNA match problems or inconsistencies, or if we can prove we descend from John 1733/35 of Surry Co. NC since we have closer dna matches to his descendants..

    Thanks,

    Phillip Roberts (the other Phil!)

    Louminda:

    I cannot offer any information regarding the relationship between Jesse Roberts and William C. Roberts.

    However, regarding your question about William Roberts, son of Reuben Roberts, I have been researching my gr-gr-grandfather's relationship with the Reuben Roberts clan for the past 3 - 4 years now due to some misinformation contained in "The Generations of Reuben" written by Laney Roberts.

    I am now of the opinion, based on the evidence I have collected, that the William Roberts married to Sarah Walling(or Wallen) is the son of William Roberts Sr. of Lee County, VA.

    Others have suggested this same relationship before 'The Generations of Reuben' went to print. Laney Roberts goes to some length in Chapter IV of his book to conclude otherwise but the arguments he puts forth just are not convincing and seem to be based on incomplete information.

    I am in the process of organizing a DRAFT of a more complete set of data, but for now, and for the sake of brevity, I will share the following facts I have gathered to support my position.

    1) There was a William Roberts jr. from Lee County, VA. living in White county Tennessee in 1822.

    Laney Roberts states in his book: "the writer has not been able to find any documented data which prove or in any way suggest that a William Roberts, Jr. of Lee County, Virginia, ever lived in White County, Tennessee."

    Response - See Hawkins Co. TN Circuit Court Minutes 1822-1825. Page 57-58. Thursday 10th October 1822. E. Embree, surviving partner of E&E Embree vs. Amis Grantham et al. Depositions to be taken of:

    John McKinney Jr. of Murray Co TN

    WILLIAM ROBERTS JR. OF WHITE CO TN.

    William H. Carter of Lee Co VA.

    Thomas Roberts of Lee Co VA

    Dauswell Rogers of Lee Co VA

    According to the above, William Roberts, Jr. was in White Co TN during the period of 1822-1825. This would appear to be William Jr. s/o William Sr. of Lee Co VA because the other men mentioned are men associated with that family. William Sr. had deeds with John McKinney Sr.; Thomas is son of Wm Sr. and brother to Wm Jr. William Sr. married Katheryn, the daughter of Dauswell Rogers who was on the 1767 Pittsylvania Co VA Tax List, the first one taken when Pittsylvania became a county.

    2) This same William Roberts can be found in 1810 Lee County VA Tax records living near the James Walling family.

    1810 census of VA for Lee Co, transcribed by Netti Schreiner-Vantis. Listed in the order the taxman took by date who was close to who:

    Cloud, John 20 March

    Blevins, James 23 March

    Ashinhurst, John 29 March

    Alsup, William 2 April

    Breeding, Jeremiah 6 April

    McKinney, John Jr. 16 May

    Wallen, John Jr. 16 May

    Wallen, John Sr. 16 May

    Wallen, Elisha 16 May

    Bledsoe, Abram 17 May

    Bledsoe, Thomas 17 May

    ROBERTS, WILLIAM JR. 17 May

    Wallen, Joseph 17 May

    Wallen, James 17 May

    Lawson, Moorman 18 May

    Lawson, Stokley 18 May

    ROBERTS, WILLIAM SR. 18 May

    Wallen, James Jr. 18 May

    3) James Walling nuncupative will made in White Co., TN in 1849 says his daughter Sarah was married to William Roberts.

    4) Thomas E. and Joseph Roberts (sons of William C. Roberts identified by L. Roberts in his book as being the son of Reuben), stated in the 1850 White County national census that they were born in Virginia.

    The evidence indicates "The generations of Reuben" is incorrect. I have more data that I am in the process of organizing a DRAFT which I will make available soon to further support my position and that the 'other' William Roberts, the son of Reuben, lived in Warren County, TN and was the father of Thomas, Ellis & James Roberts. I do not know who he was married to nor how many children they had - there are indications, none of which I can substantiate, that he may have been married to Sallie Humphreys.

    Please share your thoughts on this subject. Any facts that support or refute the above will be greatly appreciated.

    Proposed Change: William C. Roberts (I3878)
    Tree: The Hennessee Family
    Link: http://thehennesseefamily.com/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I3878&tree=hennessee

    Description: In "The generations of Reuben", Laney Roberts identified the wrong William Roberts as the son of Reuben Roberts. The William Roberts Laney identified as being the son of Reuben is actually William Roberts jr of Lee County, VA. I have spent considerable effort in working through the misinformation contained in "The Generations of Reuben". I recently submitted and obtained certification for Reuben Roberts to be included the First families of Tennessee Project sponsored by the East TN Historical Society in Knoxville, TN. My submission was based on my lineage through William Roberts of Warren County, TN -- the ETHS FFoT project had another Reuben Roberts submission from a descendant of William Roberts of White Co. TN (The one Laney Roberts incorrectly identified) at the same time and, after reviewing the submissions of each, the ETHS agreed that the Warren County William Roberts was the son of Reuben Roberts. The William Roberts of White Co. submission only had one source of information cited -- "The Generations of Reuben". Check one your other sources - "The Hache-Hash Genealogy and Allied Lines" by Gertrude Saylors. She correctly cited James M. Roberts m. Martha 'Patsy' Hash as the son of William Roberts. In his book, Laney Roberts changed the entry for James M. Roberts m. Martha 'Patsy' Hash to be the son of Caswell Cobb Roberts. Laney spends several pages in his book discussing why he thinks William Roberts of White county is the son of Reuben Roberts -- he is actually trying to discredit Mrs. Saylors work in his arguments (which are very weak). Check your sources - I have never seen a single primary source of information that indicates William Roberts of White County, TN is the son of Reuben Roberts whereas I found plenty to indicate William Roberts of warren County, TN is the correct son of Reuben Roberts. The ETHS has asked me to write an article for their quarterly journal to document William Roberts of Warren County, TN as the son of Reuben Roberts and to use the article as a case study of why people should check and verify their sources before publishing them. Currently in progress.

    Hi Bob and Dan:

    I have participated in the YDNA Roberts project. #130762. The farthest back I have *proven* is to William Roberts b.1765 who married Catherine Rogers (tradition) daughter of Doswell b. 1736. It is believed that William 1765 was son of William Roberts b. ca. 1740 who married Elizabeth Wallen, daughter of Old Elisha. My William (1765) settled in Lee Co. Va. and died there as far as i know. From the petition to form Lee Co. Va, I believe that William 1740 was there also along with William 1765...

    The Roberts I connect closest to dna-wise are the "Roberts Cove" Roberts of Grayson Co. Va. who supposedly descend from John Roberts b. 1733/35 from Surry Co. NC. I think its possible that John 1733/35 was a brother of William 1740...

    I'm sure those Roberts of White Co. TN connect to the William Roberts of Lee Co. with such close connections to Rogers and Wallens. I have not seen the name Reuben show up in any descendants in Lee Co. DNA would sure help prove it.

    Thanks for this information, I'll certainly look over it, but for now have to run.

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

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

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

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

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

    US GenWeb Archives, 11/2/99

    Beaufort County Militia, 1781

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

    No. 3
    J
    ohn Condry George Condry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Phil:

    We have corresponded before. Have been reviewing dna results lately. I'm Wm. Roberts b. 1765 kit 130762.

    I also match as you do closely to the John Roberts b. 1733/35 of Surry Co NC. As for a possibility that your JAMES 1807 was the son of WM., son of JOHN 1733/35 of Surry, I looked over Earl Roberts extensive research. He's now deceased, desc. of John 1733/35, but he's got a pretty well documentation of that family.. James b. ca 1805 (whom you mentioned is prob the same James as yours who went to White Co. TN) and family all seemed to stay in Grayson Co. Va.. James 1805 children: Lorenzo Dow b. 1831, Joseph 1833, Phoebe 1837, Nancy 1845, Micajah 1846 and Peter
    1849. I don't see any hints of his moving to TN, but I guess it could have happen.

    Now, I descend from Wm. Roberts of Lee Co. Va. With that said, my dna matches are the closest to Earl and other known descendants of John 1733/35 of Surry as yourself, but I'm 99% certain my Wm Roberts did not descend directly from John of Surry. Besides John had a son already named William so my Wm. can't fit in his family. So, in my case, it seems that descendants who we are almost certainly closer related to me (such as yourself most likely) than John of Surry show a MORE DISTANT DNA match??? Go figure. I don't understand it.

    Here's my latest family projections, *not proven of course* with help from others and dna:

    COL. JAMES ROBERTS (Tory/Loyalist leader) of Snow Creek Va. b. ca. 1720s (also had property in Surry Co. NC that was confiscated due to Tory involvement, and likely bro of John Roberts b. 1730s of Surry Co. NC, that you show below)

    Col James issue:

    -CAPT. JAMES ROBERTS b. 1747 moved to Lee Co./Hawkins Co. area, helped raise sister Happy Riddle's children per old Riddle fam. book.
    -CORNELIUS 1749 Russell Co. Va., killed 1788 by Indians (currently awaiting dna results from desc)
    -JESSE ? 1763 of Clay Co. Ky.
    -JOHN 1750 Va, of Buncombe Co. NC
    -HARRIET "HAPPY" b. 1740s m. Wm. Riddle, Tory leader.
    -WILLIAM ROBERTS of Lee Co. Va. b. 1740s (from Henry/Grayson Co Va area) m. Elizabeth Walling, dau. of Elisha Sr.
    -WILLIAM ROBERTS of Lee Co. b. 1765 m. Catherine Rogers, dau. of Doswell.
    -WILLIAM 1788 m. 1 Sarah Walling/2 Sallie Humphries (Wm. moved from Lee Co. Va. to White Co. Tn)
    -JAMES 1807 of White Co. TN (your line)
    - JOSEPH b. 1790s m. Margaret Anderson (my line-stayed in Lee Co. area)

    Anyway, thought I'd share and welcome any comments, especially if anybody can explain the DNA match problems or inconsistencies, or if we can prove we descend from John 1733/35 of Surry Co. NC since we have closer dna matches to his descendants..

    Thanks,

    Phillip Roberts (the other Phil!)

    Louminda:

    I cannot offer any information regarding the relationship between Jesse Roberts and William C. Roberts.

    However, regarding your question about William Roberts, son of Reuben Roberts, I have been researching my gr-gr-grandfather's relationship with the Reuben Roberts clan for the past 3 - 4 years now due to some misinformation contained in "The Generations of Reuben" written by Laney Roberts.

    I am now of the opinion, based on the evidence I have collected, that the William Roberts married to Sarah Walling(or Wallen) is the son of William Roberts Sr. of Lee County, VA.

    Others have suggested this same relationship before 'The Generations of Reuben' went to print. Laney Roberts goes to some length in Chapter IV of his book to conclude otherwise but the arguments he puts forth just are not convincing and seem to be based on incomplete information.

    I am in the process of organizing a DRAFT of a more complete set of data, but for now, and for the sake of brevity, I will share the following facts I have gathered to support my position.

    1) There was a William Roberts jr. from Lee County, VA. living in White county Tennessee in 1822.

    Laney Roberts states in his book: "the writer has not been able to find any documented data which prove or in any way suggest that a William Roberts, Jr. of Lee County, Virginia, ever lived in White County, Tennessee."

    Response - See Hawkins Co. TN Circuit Court Minutes 1822-1825. Page 57-58. Thursday 10th October 1822. E. Embree, surviving partner of E&E Embree vs. Amis Grantham et al. Depositions to be taken of:

    John McKinney Jr. of Murray Co TN

    WILLIAM ROBERTS JR. OF WHITE CO TN.

    William H. Carter of Lee Co VA.

    Thomas Roberts of Lee Co VA

    Dauswell Rogers of Lee Co VA

    According to the above, William Roberts, Jr. was in White Co TN during the period of 1822-1825. This would appear to be William Jr. s/o William Sr. of Lee Co VA because the other men mentioned are men associated with that family. William Sr. had deeds with John McKinney Sr.; Thomas is son of Wm Sr. and brother to Wm Jr. William Sr. married Katheryn, the daughter of Dauswell Rogers who was on the 1767 Pittsylvania Co VA Tax List, the first one taken when Pittsylvania became a county.

    2) This same William Roberts can be found in 1810 Lee County VA Tax records living near the James Walling family.

    1810 census of VA for Lee Co, transcribed by Netti Schreiner-Vantis. Listed in the order the taxman took by date who was close to who:

    Cloud, John 20 March

    Blevins, James 23 March

    Ashinhurst, John 29 March

    Alsup, William 2 April

    Breeding, Jeremiah 6 April

    McKinney, John Jr. 16 May

    Wallen, John Jr. 16 May

    Wallen, John Sr. 16 May

    Wallen, Elisha 16 May

    Bledsoe, Abram 17 May

    Bledsoe, Thomas 17 May

    ROBERTS, WILLIAM JR. 17 May

    Wallen, Joseph 17 May

    Wallen, James 17 May

    Lawson, Moorman 18 May

    Lawson, Stokley 18 May

    ROBERTS, WILLIAM SR. 18 May

    Wallen, James Jr. 18 May

    3) James Walling nuncupative will made in White Co., TN in 1849 says his daughter Sarah was married to William Roberts.

    4) Thomas E. and Joseph Roberts (sons of William C. Roberts identified by L. Roberts in his book as being the son of Reuben), stated in the 1850 White County national census that they were born in Virginia.

    The evidence indicates "The generations of Reuben" is incorrect. I have more data that I am in the process of organizing a DRAFT which I will make available soon to further support my position and that the 'other' William Roberts, the son of Reuben, lived in Warren County, TN and was the father of Thomas, Ellis & James Roberts. I do not know who he was married to nor how many children they had - there are indications, none of which I can substantiate, that he may have been married to Sallie Humphreys.

    Please share your thoughts on this subject. Any facts that support or refute the above will be greatly appreciated.

    Proposed Change: William C. Roberts (I3878)
    Tree: The Hennessee Family
    Link: http://thehennesseefamily.com/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I3878&tree=hennessee

    Description: In "The generations of Reuben", Laney Roberts identified the wrong William Roberts as the son of Reuben Roberts. The William Roberts Laney identified as being the son of Reuben is actually William Roberts jr of Lee County, VA. I have spent considerable effort in working through the misinformation contained in "The Generations of Reuben". I recently submitted and obtained certification for Reuben Roberts to be included the First families of Tennessee Project sponsored by the East TN Historical Society in Knoxville, TN. My submission was based on my lineage through William Roberts of Warren County, TN -- the ETHS FFoT project had another Reuben Roberts submission from a descendant of William Roberts of White Co. TN (The one Laney Roberts incorrectly identified) at the same time and, after reviewing the submissions of each, the ETHS agreed that the Warren County William Roberts was the son of Reuben Roberts. The William Roberts of White Co. submission only had one source of information cited -- "The Generations of Reuben". Check one your other sources - "The Hache-Hash Genealogy and Allied Lines" by Gertrude Saylors. She correctly cited James M. Roberts m. Martha 'Patsy' Hash as the son of William Roberts. In his book, Laney Roberts changed the entry for James M. Roberts m. Martha 'Patsy' Hash to be the son of Caswell Cobb Roberts. Laney spends several pages in his book discussing why he thinks William Roberts of White county is the son of Reuben Roberts -- he is actually trying to discredit Mrs. Saylors work in his arguments (which are very weak). Check your sources - I have never seen a single primary source of information that indicates William Roberts of White County, TN is the son of Reuben Roberts whereas I found plenty to indicate William Roberts of warren County, TN is the correct son of Reuben Roberts. The ETHS has asked me to write an article for their quarterly journal to document William Roberts of Warren County, TN as the son of Reuben Roberts and to use the article as a case study of why people should check and verify their sources before publishing them. Currently in progress.

CALEB's will dated 26 November 1790, probated February Court 1791, mentions wife, ELIZABETH, and sons, CHRISTOPHER and CASON SWINDELL. His will dictated that the remaider of the estate should be equally divided between his children after the death of his wife, ELIZABETH.

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

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

    Notes:

    27 Nov 2006:

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

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

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

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

    In further discourse, Raleigh states:

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    Hi Bob and Dan:

    I have participated in the YDNA Roberts project. #130762. The farthest back I have *proven* is to William Roberts b.1765 who married Catherine Rogers (tradition) daughter of Doswell b. 1736. It is believed that William 1765 was son of William Roberts b. ca. 1740 who married Elizabeth Wallen, daughter of Old Elisha. My William (1765) settled in Lee Co. Va. and died there as far as i know. From the petition to form Lee Co. Va, I believe that William 1740 was there also along with William 1765...

    The Roberts I connect closest to dna-wise are the "Roberts Cove" Roberts of Grayson Co. Va. who supposedly descend from John Roberts b. 1733/35 from Surry Co. NC. I think its possible that John 1733/35 was a brother of William 1740...

    I'm sure those Roberts of White Co. TN connect to the William Roberts of Lee Co. with such close connections to Rogers and Wallens. I have not seen the name Reuben show up in any descendants in Lee Co. DNA would sure help prove it.

    Thanks for this information, I'll certainly look over it, but for now have to run.

    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.

    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'.

    Hello Dave,

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

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

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

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

    Court Session 1763 Page (97)-49:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Dec. 1757-Mar. 1758 Term

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

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

    Notes:

    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

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


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

    Andrew,
    Daniel, and
    John.

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

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

    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:
