    David,

    I searched White County Census 1880 and found nobody by last name of Moon and in the1900 I found only Thomas Moon head of household, born April 1873 and married to Hannah born February 1875. In the Warren County Census for 1870, 1880, and 1900 there were no Moon.

    David,

    I didn't look close enough. All of the children have the same names as on your link so it must be the same Thomas Moon and the Census has the wrong birth date. I have attached you a copy of the White County 1900 Census. I also looked in the Van Buren County Census for 1870, 80, 90, 1900 and found no one by the last name of Moon.

    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?

    although it has been known for hundreds of years (well, I don;t know if it has been hundred of years lol) Abraham Cantrell (who is one of my Great-great-great-grandfathers on the Cantrell side..lol) was mentioned in William Robbs will....he was indeed married to Jane Robbs or Jennie as some has said.....Jane Robbs Cantrell's parents were William Robbs and Susanah Watson......of spartanburg...Christie and several others has stated that Abraham was married to a miss Collins which is incorrect....Jane Robbs Cantrell had already passed away before 1841 I am assuming in Warren County, Tennessee as Abraham joined one of the many folks that took off to Dade County, Missouri in 1848 ...and died in Wright County/Webster County, Missouri....William Watson Cantrell of Warren County, Tennessee was named for both his grandparents.......

    Articulate, erudite, well-sourced MULLICAN opus authored by D. Mitchell Jones (1942-2006);

    JOHN OR WILLIAM?

    Which one was the Father of John and William Mullican?

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

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

    John Mullican m Nancy Ann Allen:

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

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

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

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

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE:

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

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

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND VIRGINA:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    3. (ii)WILLIAM MULLICAN2 (William1) b ca 1769 VA d bet 1850 & 24 Mar 1851xlii Warren Co., TN m1st ca 1790 SC Wilmoth Estes m2nd widow Elizabeth Fuson m3rd Elizabeth Smith m4th widow Franky Barnes b ca 1761 VA. William Mullican was a farmer, and appears to have moved with his father to South Carolina about 1787. On 10 Mar 1791 he purchased for 100 pounds 240 acres of land on Horse Creek, Greenville District, South Carolina from Joseph Dunklin.xliii This land was bordered by the land of Jesse Chandler. He was still living in Greenville District on 26 Jan 1792 when he appeared in court as witness to deed for his father.xliv He may have moved to North Carolina for a few years as his son, William, on 1850 census says he was born in North Carolina. We do not know if his son gave the information to the census taker, or if it was a neighbor or some other person. If he did then he was back in South Carolina by 1797. On 29 May 1797 he purchased for 40 pounds 300 acres of land from Joseph Webb[Joel Webb] on Seneca River in Washington District of South Carolina.xlv This land was bordered by the land of James Chandler and Isham Irby. On 5 August 1798 he sold 240 acres of this land for 50 pounds to John Russel.xlvi The deed describes the land as being on Northside of Keowee River. William signed with an "X" as his mark. On 4 November 1797 as William Millican Jr of Pendleton District he sold his livestock to his father in Greenville District.xlvii He is in the 1800 Pendleton District, SC census with 3 white males under 10, 1 white male 26 to 45, 2 white females under 10, and 1 white female 26 to 45. He was still in Pendleton District in 1801 when he helped inventory the estate of George Hoge.xlviii By 1805 he is in Lincoln County, Kentucky as he is on Tax List with one white male over 21 and two horses.xlix In the same tax district were Jesse, Joel, and Townsend Webb. He is also on the 1806 Lincoln County Tax List with one white male, three horses, and 200 acres of land on Knoblick Creek.l In 1806 part of Lincoln County including Knoblick Creek was formed into Casey County, Kentucky. He is listed as William Mullican, Jr on the 1807 and 1808 Tax Lists of Casey County with four horses and 100 acres of land on Knoblick Creek with his father as William Mullican SR. In 1808 Solomon Mullican is also listed on the tax lists.li We feel he moved from Casey County in 1808-1809 to Warren County, Tennessee as on 17 September 1810 in he had his occupant claim of 177 acres of land surveyed on Mountain Creek adjoining James Webb.lii He, his brother, John Mullican, Elias, James Jr & Sr, and Julias Webb is listed on the 1812 Warren County Tax list in Richard Cantrell's District.liii Also in same district was. On 6 April 1813 he entered 60 acres of land on dry fork of Mountain Creek in Warren County. The land, which included said Mullican's spring, was surveyed on 17 October 1813 with James Webb and William Mullican as survey chain carriers.liv Also in 1813 he, brother John, and their father, William, signed a petition as citizens living in extreme Northeast corner of Warren County to move voting place to Pine Creeklv [in present DeKalb Co.] He entered 12 acres of land on 12 October 1814 on waters of Mountain Creek.lvi The land was surveyed on 8 September 1815, and survey chain carriers were James Webb and William Mullican. He entered two tract of land in 1824 for 82 acres and 50 acres.lvii In 1825 and 1826 he entered two tracts of land of 50 acres each.lviii The 1825 and 1826 entries joined land of Jonathan Parris on Mountain Creek. He also entered seven acres of land in 1826 which joined his 60 acre tract he lived on, his 12 acre tract, and land he purchased from Enoch Anderson, James Webb, and Thomas Harper.lix In 1828 he entered 30 acres of land on waters of Collins River, and the 30 acres begin on beginning corner of tract John G. Mullican now lives so as to include the old 30 acre tract said mullican now lives on.lx He also added to his land holdings in 1828 by purchasing 50 acres from Jonathan Davis.lxi The land was on both sides of Mountain Creek. The land begin a few poles of the Baptist Meeting House, and joined Jonathan Parris's lower 100 acre survey.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    After posting the documentations for BARTON LOVELACE, first husband of LUCY WATSON, I had to revise my own direct line back to Capt. Abraham Cantrell and his first wife ??? ??? because he didn't marry Lucy Watson Lovelace until after 1786. This is what I now have.

    Comments are welcome along with any other proofs or information. John "Johnny Flat" Cantrell's mother wasn't Lucy Watson Lovelace. I need any information for his full siblings Thomas and Richard. Mildred Seburn Clark

    The following letter was written by Nancy Strother Smith (Mrs. J. W. Lee), daughter of Rebecca Maizie Davis Smith, dau. of John Lewis Davis and Ellender "Nellie" Cantrell of DeKalb Co, TN. Rebecca Maizie Davis was the family Historian from the time she was a child until she died. She married James W. Lee. Nancy Strother Smith Lee gave each of her three children a copy of her journal. James W. Lee, Jr.'s Journal was passed down to James W. Lee, III who has posted items on the DeKalb County site on usgenweb. Nancy sent the letter to Jerry L. Cantrell who died in the automobile crash on his way to be married in Las Vegas. Jerry's things went to various family members. Warren G. Cantrell ended up with some of the letters and Ann Goszinski, aunt of Sandy Wainwright ended up with some of them. Most valuable to Mildred I. Seburn Clark is the following letter to Jerry L. Cantrell from Nancy Strother Smith Lee (Mrs. J. W. Lee). Sandy Wainwright gave me what is below:

    The letter:
    Now John, Called "Johnny Flathead", married Mary Adkins. Their children were:
    Sampson, Madison, Abraham,, William Riley, Serene and Nellie, my grandmother.
    Sampson married and took his family to Alabama. Madison married Nellie Cantrell and went to Mississippi and had six children. They were: Jane, Nancy, Robert, John, Elizabeth, and Melissa Cantrell.
    Abraham married Jennie Robbs, no doubt about that! Their children were:
    Collins, John, Jefferson (who married ms. West), William (who married Sallie Mullican), eight children, Sallie married Mr. Wilkerson. I knew their son Cleve Wilkerson and went to school with his children. Susan married Tom Cantrell. Lissie (Melissa) married Richard Cantrell. Tom and Richard were brothers, and were sons of Peter and Polly Cantrell. They were also brothers-in-law to Alex Davis, (my mother's brother). Alex Davis and his father-in-law went with their families to Dade County, Mo., when they were young. Alex Davis made two visits back to Smithville, and died in Missouri at 100 years old.

    A daughter of John and Mary Adkins Cantrell was Nellie Cantrell, my grandmother. She married John (Jackie) Lewis Davis. I never heard my grandmother called by the name you mentioned. Everyone called her Nellie. My grandparents were both born in Spartanburg, SC and Rebecca, my mother, and her sister Amanda, were both born in Tennessee. My grandparents both lived to be 87 years old, and both died in an accident. They raised 12 children to be up in years, and never had a doctor in the house. (Strong and Healthy). I have a nephew, James Carlyn Moore who is one of the men at Pepperdine College, Los Angeles. You may meet him sometime. If you should, tell him that you and he are kin. I appreciate all that you sent me. I hope that you will write again and tell me about your family. Anything you will write will be of interest to me. Give my respects to your grandfather. Sincerely, Your cousin,
    Mrs. J. W. Lee (Nancy Strother Smith)
    Author of the letter: The letter was sent to my uncle Jerry Cantrell in the early 1960s........My aunt's name is Goskini......she doesn't post anything.....But she has thousands of pieces of papers, wills. Letters etc............I found IDA married twice.....and another kid, but can't read the name...
    from Sandy Wainwright to Mildred I. (Seburn) Clark Oct, 2002. Sandy said her uncle Jerry had planned to do a book in the 1960's but died before he could. His papers then were divided among the family and Warren G. Cantrell received part of them.
    ----
    Rebecca Davis Smith died in 1931. Nancy Strother Davis Lee was her daughter. John "Johnny Flathead" Cantrell was the father of Ellenor "Nellie" Cantrell who married John Lewis "Jackie" Davis. . Tom, Richard and Druzilla E. Cantrell were the children of Peter Cantrell and Mary Elizabeth "Polly" Davis, sister of John Lewis "Jackie" Davis. I have a paper copy of a photo of Rebecca Davis and her children from John Gray Davis-Mildred I. Seburn Clark.

    Husband of Miss Brittian and Jane. 1st Spouse: Hannah Brittian (1725-1769)


    "John Cantrell, Sr., was a miller and Baptist Minester. He helped establish the Buck Creek Baptist Chruch in Buck Creek, Sportanburg Co., South Carolina. He served as Pastor from 1800 to 1803. John is burried in Cantrell Family Cemetery. John had a brother by the name of Isaac Cantrell who was also a Baptist preacher at Buck Creek Baptist Church.

    JOHN3 CANTRELL (JOSEPH2 CANTRILL, RICHARD1) was born October 1724 in New Castle, DE, and died 1803 in Spartanburg Co, SC. He married (1) ?? BRITTAIN. He married (2) JANE.

    John was in Rockingham Co NC before the Revolution. He later moved to Spartanburg Co SC, where he owned over 800 acres on Buck Creek in the 96th District. One of the first members of the Buck Creek Baptist Church, son Isaac was a messenger there. Sons Abraham, Stephen and Moses administered his estate. His first 17 sons were by his first wife, four sons and two daughters by his second. There were supposedly a number of twins in the family, and for the sake of his first wife, let us fervently hope so.

    According to the Cantrell family file folder in the Georgia Archives, "Aaron, Simon and Peter were captured during the Revolution and were condemned to be shot. Tradition says Peter was shot, and Aaron & Peter [sic] escaped." The three were also supposedly scouts in Gen. Marion's army.

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


    Incidentally, I'm told there is no name John Miller Cantrell. Rather, "Old" John Cantrell who m. Miss Brittain had a son who was known as "Miller" John Cantrell because he owned a mill in SC. That's the John who m. Elizabeth Cantrell. Since my husband apparently doesn't have that line, I'm not getting excited about it but it is a point of interest and clarification if true.

    The Cantrell name orginated in France, and was spelled CHANTELLE. The first Cantrell to be recorded in England was during the rain of King John 1199, AD. He was William Cantrell. The first Cantrell to be married in America was also a William Cantrell, the nineth in line fron the first William Cantrell. William Cantrell arrived on the Ship Phenix, at Jamestown, Vergnine 1608. This William Cantrell is known as the Progenitor of most of the Cantrell's in America.

    From the area of Philadelphia, Pa., the Cantrell's Migroated as "Mishionaries of the Mother Baptist Church" south to North and South Carolines. John Centrell Sr. after service in the Rev. War from N. C. settled in a place called Bucks Creek.

    The Bucks Creek Baptist Church is still standing. The Cantrell family Cemetery is a stort destance away. John Cantrell Sr. is beruied in this cemetery.

    John CANTRELL Sr. was a miller and Baptist Minester. He helped establish the Bucks Creek Baptist Church in Buck Creek, [Sportanburg Co.] S. C. Served as Pastor from 1800 to 1803. John is burried in Cantrell Family Cemetery. John had a brother by the name of Isaac Cantrell. Isaac also was pastor of the Bucks Creek Baptist Church. The Cantrell Cemetery is near the Bucks Creek Baptist Church.



    Notes from Carl D. Cantrell:

    He was married twice. He had seventeen sons by his first wife _______ Brittian and four sons and two daughters by his second wife Jane ______. We have heard from several that there were a number of twins in this large family. He died in 1803 and his sons Abraham, Stephen and Moses administered upon his estate.

    There are may traditions in the family regarding John Cantrell and his family and their moving to the Carolinas, but the exact date of his leaving New Castle county is not known. It is known, however, that he was living in Rockingham county, or what is now that county, North Carolina, before the Revolutionary War, and shortly after the war he moved to Ninety Six District, now Spartanburg county, SC, where he owned over eight hundred acres of land on Buck creek, waters of the Pacolet river. John Cantrell and his family were devoted and active members in the Buck creek Baptist church and some of his descendants still attend this old church. There is not reliable authority for a correct tabulation for any but the first three of the children of John Cantrell and we have endeavored to make the list correct from records, rather than from lists furnished from memory by his descendants. His father moved to the big valley of Virginia before John reached his teens. In 1738, his father was living in Orange county, Virginia. He spent all of his life as a farmer. We don't know what education he had but he probably received what ever was available to frontier lads. The family genealogist stated that he married two times and, from the ages of the children, this is probably true. She stated that his 1st wife was a Miss Brittain. She was probably a sister of Joseph Brittain, who lived near John in North Carolina and who is mentioned in the records of his brother, Joseph, in 1759, in Rowan county. The marriage was probably somewhere in the valley of Virginia. In the 18th century, families from Pennsylvania filtered down through the Great Valley of Virginia to the Piedmont Plateau of the Carolinas.

    The family had become associated with the Baptist Church and Isaac, John's brother, was ordained a minister. The family settled in the "Land of Eden," Granville county, North Carolina, which became Orange county in September, 1752. John is first located on a tax list submitted by the Sheriff in 1754. The list was for two white polls. His brother Isaac received a land grant for 202 acres of land in Orange county, November 13, 1756. He sold this land to John on March 13, 1759. The deed was witnessed by James Watson. The land was on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordons Creek. The land was about seven miles north of the Upper Branch of the Haw River, on the waters of Wolf Island Creek which was a branch of the Dan River to the north. It is about two miles north of the present town of Reidsville, Rockingham county, North Carolina. After the tax list of 1754, the next time we find John is in the Minutes of the Orange County Records, when he is sued by James Cary Jr. on a debt in the December court of 1758. In the Court of September, 1759, he and his brother Joseph were on a road jury to lay out a road from Hogna's Creek to the county courthouse. He and William Savage were appointed Overseers of the road. In August, 1760, they were appointed to another road jury to lay out a road from Daniel McGullon's plantation to Taylors road leading to the court house. He was appointed overseer to the lower section. In August, 1763, Henry Cobb was appointed to replace John on the Lower town road, and in May, 1765, John Morrow was appointed Overseer in place of John on the other road. In May, 1766, John was appointed Overseer of a road in place of William Laughlin. On November 12, 1765, John sold his 202 acres of land to William Jones. No record of his having purchased other land are found in Orange county records. Guilford county, North Carolina, was formed in 1771 from the western part of Orange county. John and his family lived in the northern part of this new county, and this area became Rockingham county in 1785. But, by this time John and his family and many others in the area had moved south westward down the Piedmont Plateau to the 96th District of South Carolina. When this move was made has not been firmly established but it appears to have been shortly after the close of the Revolutionary War. His 1st wife died and he married Jane________.

    The 1st wife is probably buried at the Wolf Island Baptist Church Cemetery. The church was formed in 1777 by his brother, Isaac, on a part of his 770 acre farm. Isaac's 1st wife died in the area and she was probably buried on the ridge where the church was built. John's wife is probably buried at the same burial place. In the 1960s, the field markers were removed to facilitate mowing. It was estimated that there were probably one hundred unmarked graves in the cemetery. The family genealogist stated that he had seventeen sons by the 1st wife and four sons and two daughters by the 2nd wife. She admitted there was no reliable authority for a correct tabulation for the listed children of John except for the first three. She had heard the tradition of the Cantrell with twenty-one sons and though there was available evidence that Isaac was more likely to have had the twenty-one sons, she attributed them to John and preceded to compile a list of twenty-one. We now know that two of the listed sons were not Cantrells but Curtis. This was due to a misreading of the 1790 census. We know that at least three of the children listed were nephews, sons of brother Isaac. Two sons listed were never located on census reports or other records, but this does not mean that they did not exist, so we end up with a list of sixteen sons. Because two daughters of John were born during the years of the 1st marriage, we can assume there were at least four daughters.

    Soon after John arrived in the 96th District, later Spartanburg county, South Carolina, he acquired 800 acres of land on Buck Creek, waters of the Pacolet River. Later his brother Isaac and many of his sons and nephews also acquired land in the area.

    In 1790, John is listed as head of household in the census of the 96th District. He had one son under sixteen and two daughters at home. Many family names on this census were familiar names first located in the court records of Orange county, North Carolina. We have assumed that John and his brothers were the first to use the spelling of the family name as Cantrell, but now we find his father, Joseph used this spelling in 1758 in Virginia. The history of the South Carolina Baptist Church gives statistics for the Buck Creek Baptist Church for the period 1790-1800. This church claims to have been a constituted body since 1779. Situated near Pacolet River about twelve miles northeast of Spartanburg, it became a constituent of the Bethel Association in 1789. In 1790, the church had 78 members. When John's brother, Isaac moved south in 1795, he became the minister there from 1796 though 1798. John was a messenger to the Bethel Association from 1797 though 1799. In 1800, John is listed as the minister.

    The church building has been rebuilt several times in the past 200 years. At the present time, there is a new, large, red brick church building across the road from the old church location and the cemetery. It is located on a hill, about a quarter of a mile north of the mouth of Buck Creek, about 2 miles west of Mayo. Descendants of the family are still members of the church. John was not listed as the head of household in the 1800 census of South Carolina, but his was listed in the household of his son, Moses, age 36. The household listed a male and female over 45 years of age. We know that John owned three slaves and the listing for Moses had 3 slaves listed. John died February, 1803, and three sons, Abraham, Stephen, and Moses were appointed administrators of the estate. The probate was recorded in Deed book "L" page 193. His widow, Jane, received a dower settlement. In the last several years, a number of researchers have tried to locate this deed book without success. John is probably buried at the Buck Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. The center of the cemetery has at least one hundred graves marked by fieldstones with only graves since the 1850s containing information on the stones. Jane is not listed as head of household on the 1810 census. She was probably living in the household of a married daughter.
