    Burgess Harrelson "Harrel" Byars (1779-1874), my 4th great grandfather (Dianne Armstrong)

    Harrel is the only listed Byars slave holder in 1860.

    1860 slave schedules:

    4 slaves: F52, M30, M26, F23

    The 52 yr. old I believe was Jude Byars and the 23 yr. old Nancy Byars her daughter.

    They last appear in 1880, Jude 72 and Nancy 39 in the home of Harrel's daughter Mary Byars Fuston.

    I have been able to trace them forward after 1880 or to identify the other 2.

    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]


  2. 25.  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.

    Notes:

    Big news from the Byars dna project.

    Recent dna results prove that James (Henry) Byars of Hanover Co, VA is NOT the ancestor of Nathan b 1749, William who married Sarah Doggett or William who married Elizabeth Bedford. DNA from a proven descendant of James through his documented son Capt John, matches with dna from a descendant of the Byars who went from Granville Co into West Tennessee. NO CONNECTION to old Nathan, William or William

    Majorie Stewart Tucker writes,

    Nathan Byars was born in 1749, Granville Co., NC, d. Aug. 18, 1846, Spartanburg District, SC. He m.1st. after 1772 (date of Burgess Harrelson's will), Drucilla Harrelson, b. ca 1743-50, d. probably ca 1818, dau. of Burgess Harrelson and wife, Elizabeth.

    The will of Burgess Harrelson was made Oct. 9, 1772, in Orange Co., NC. In it he named his daughter, Drucilla Harrelson and gave her two hundred acres of land, indicating that Drucilla was not married when the will was written.

    Nathan Byars is buried in the Cowpens National Park, Cherokee County, SC. His tombstone reads "In Memory of Nathan Byars Sen. who died Aug. 18, 1846 in his 97th year." Note - Cherokee Co., SC was formed 1897 from Union, York, and Spartanburg Counties.

    Nathan Byars served as a Private from North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. On May 22, 1778, he took the State Oath of Allegiance according to the Acts of the Assembly passed at New Bern the 15th day of November, 1777, in the second year of the Independence of the State of North Carolina, being one of seventy- seven persons in the Island Creek District so doing. Among this number was also one William Byars, who may have been his brother.

    While a resident of Caswell County, North Carolina, Nathan Byars was drafted three times and served three months each tour. He then volunteered a tour of three months and went south against the Indians. He was stationed principally at Hillsborough, NC. On Dec. 31, 1844, at the advanced age of ninety-five years, when he applied for his Military Pension, Nathan was unable to remember the exact date of his birth or the exact dates of his service.

    He did remember that his father told him that he was a small boy at the time of Gen. Braddock's defeat (1755, during the French and Indian War). He recollected that he was in the service at the time the battle was fought at the Eutaw Springs (Sept. 1781) and at King's Mountain (1780) and at the time of Gates' defeat (Aug. 16, 1780, Camden, SC), though he did not participate in these battles.

    Nathan's application for pension was supported by an affidavit submitted by Jesse and Rev. Drury, two sons of his neighbor, Richard Scruggs. His application was also supported by Philip Davis and Sarah (Davis) Wadkins, who made oath that their brother, Jacob Davis, was drafted at the same time and that they served the tour together. Sarah Davis was married to William Watkins, whose brother, Daniel Watkins, Sr. married Nathan's daughter, Elizabeth Byars. She stated that she was raised and lived in NC until she was twelve or fourteen years of age and that she lived near Nathan Byars.

    The following is a copy of the interrogation of Nathan Byars when he applied for his Military Pension, Dec. 31, 1844:

    his mark Nathan Byars

    R. Bowdin, Judge of the Court of Chancery

    Nathan Byars engaged in many land transactions, both buying and selling in Granville Co., NC from 1780 through 1784, yet in Caswell Co., he bought and sold land from 1781 through 1784. It seems likely the family moved to Rutherford Co., NC about 1783-85.

    Nathan purchased 200 acres from James Webb April 10, 1783, located on Main Broad River in Rutherford County. A few years later, in 1795, he sold a part of it to William Dobbins. On Apr. 13, 1802 he sold lands secured by title bond and gave possession to Arthur Clark the whole of 8 plantations containing 1,250 acres. Either he or his son, Nathan, Jr. bought land in Spartanburg Co., SC beginning in 1817.

    About 1801 Nathan and Drucilla's marriage began to fall apart. Quoting from the Haralson - Harrelson Family History, compiled by Danny K. Haralson, page 47 - "Nathan had been living with Delphy
    Logan since 1801." No source was cited as proof for this statement. Delphy Logan became Nathan's second wife, Oct. 8, 1819.

    In Delphy's application for a widow's pension, made Dec. 29, 1853, she stated that she and Nathan were not married prior to Jan. 2, 1800. Drucilla filed a petition for a legal separation to the
    North Carolina General Assembly October 11, 1808. The following is a copy of the document:

    To the Honorable the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina

    The humble petition of Drusilla Byars of Rutherford County in the said State wife of Nathan Byars of the same County she with, that your petitioner when married was worth a considerable estate, that her said husband had little or no property; that your petitioner lived in harmony with her husband for a great many years in which time she had 10 children during all which time ever since she hath used her best endeavor to improve their property and support their family, did use unremitted exertions to render her said husband happy. That about seven years ago her husband did withdraw his affection from her and did refuse giving her any protection or support and did convince her to leave his house, she repeate and returned and was often obliged to abandon his house to resort to the cold charity of the world for substenance.

    Your petitioner on representing these facts to the Court of Equity of Morgan District had a decree was made in her favor, but she finds no decree can be availing until she is authorized to hold any property she may acquire as she can find no friend who feels sufficient interest to induce him to act as a trustee, and to secure and defend any property to which she might be entitled.

    Now your petitioner humbly prays that an act of Assembly be made authorizing her to hold property which she may acquire and to maintain and defend suit in her own name.

    Petition of Drusilla Byars of Rutherford County
    Praying a law be passed securing to her such property as she may herself later acquire.

    In Senate November 24th 1808
    Read and referred to the committee on Divorce and Alimony E/e

    By order M. Stokes, Clk Mr. Pickens

    Granted in House of Commons 24 November 1808 read orders at by the Senate
    By order
    Honorable H.B.

    With the help of her son-in-law, Thaddeus Dudley Walker, Drucilla received some money from Nathan. From Rutherford Co., NC Deed Book 25, page 174:

    "This indenture made this 13th day of July, 1809, between William Carson, Esq., high sheriff of the County of Rutherford, State of North Carolina, on the one part and Thaddius Walker of the County of Rutherford and the State aforesaid of the other part. Whereas by virtue of an execution issuing from the Superior Court of Burke County against Nathan Byars for the sum of fifty pounds 5/ which sum was recovered by Drucilla Byars as on record may appear."

    The following information about the early divorces and separations is from The North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal, Vol. III, No. 1, Feb. 1977, pp. 43-45:

    "Divorces and Separations Granted by Act of North Carolina Assembly from 1790-1808" by B. Ransom McBride.

    McBride gives a history of Divorce and Separation during colonial times through 1808. He says, "With the advent of liberal Jeffersonian democracy, the upward trend continued, and in the six years between 1802 and 1808, the NC Assembly had approved four more complete divorces and 116 separations." A complete listing of divorces and separations is part of the article with divorces indicated with a D. On page 45 is this entry: Byars, Prusilla, husband not named; of Rutherford Co. (1808, page 39)". Complete information for each entry is available in the Legislative Papers of North Carolina.

    According to Maurice Rasmussen (Enquirer, Vol. I, No. 4, p. 109)

    Drucilla lived with her daughter Elizabeth Watkins and was with her daughter, Nancy Walker when she died.

    Tradition says Drucilla died in 1818. Since there was no divorce, Nathan had to wait until she died before he could marry Delphy, so that may well be the year Drucilla Harrelson Byars passed away.
    Nathan and Delphy Logan were married Oct. 8, 1819, in Spartanburg Dist., SC, by Rev. Joshua Richards.

    Nathan moved from Rutherford Co., NC to the area of the Cowpens Battleground, in the Spartanburg Dist., SC, settling on the high ground separating the Suck and Little Buck Creek watersheds. About 1822 he built a cabin and cleared and fenced a field southwest of the intersection of the Island (Coulter's Ford) and Green River roads. (This info from the Report of U.S. Park Service, Gov't Study).

    Shown on the next page is a picture of the cabin that Nathan Byars built, taken April 14, 1978, courtesy of Dorothy Eubanks Hays. Even though it was recommended that the house be studied, the National Parks Service tore it down."

    In April 1826, Nathan Byars had Joseph Camp survey for him a 394 acre tract, as evidenced by the following:

    State of South Carolina

    Pursuant to a warrant from Jabez Galt, Esq., Commissioner of Locations in Spartanburgh District dated 8th of March 1826 - I have admeasured & laid out unto Nathan Byars, Senr. a Tract of Land containing three Hundred & ninety four acres Situate in Said District and on the head waters of Island, Suck & Buck Creeks including his own home & plantation, also including the Cowpen Battle Ground Bounded East by Scruggs' & Earle's Land and all other sides by unknown Lands - and hath such shape & form as above Plat represents. Surveyed this 5th day of April 1826 ___
    By me, Joseph Camp,

    Andrew Rhea
    & C.B.
    Robt. Scruggs Recorded 12th April 1826. Paid $2.00 and
    Recorded in

    Plat Book B, at page 383.

    A copy of the plat is presented on the next page, followed by a Historical Base Map of the Cowpens National Battlefield.


    The following is quoted from a Report of U.S. Park Service Gov't. Study, page 12:

    "Gov. Richard J. Manning, on examining the plat and its accompanying certificate, granted on October 2, 1826, to Nathan Byars, "his heirs and assigns," a 394-acre tract or plantation on the headwaters of Island, Suck, and Buck creeks.

    An examination of the Byars, Steadman, and McClaren plats shows that in 1826 Byars had been granted 394 acres of the 2,000 acres granted to McClaren 23 years before. McClaren had conveyed title to most of the acreage in his grants to Wilson Nesbitt, who, plagued by lawsuits, had failed to maintain and defend his title. To the west Byars' grant intruded onto the acreage granted to James Steadman in 1787 by Governor Pinckney. The parties to whom the Steadman heirs had conveyed his 2,482-acre grant were absentee owners. Although the plat prepared for Nathaniel Gist by John Gibbs in 1845 shows a conflict, there were no court challenges.

    The Court of Common Pleas for Spartanburg District issued on November 16, 1840, a writ of Five Facias in the suit of Samuel Ezell against Nathan Byars. When Byars was unable to pay the judgment, Sheriff A.C. Bomar of Spartanburg District was ordered to levy $36.60 on his goods and chattels, with interests and costs.

    To enforce the writ, Sheriff Bomar seized and taken of the Lands and Tenaments of the said Nathan Byars all that certain piece parcel and tract of land containing three Hundred Acres, more or less."

    Samuel Ezell sold the 300 acres to his son, James H. Ezell.

    Nathan Byars was now left penniless, his land and home having been seized from him. On Dec. 31, 1844, he applied for a Military Pension which was repeatedly denied to him. Finally, Oct. 3, 1851, Michael Thompson wrote a letter to James E. Heath, Commissioner of Pensions, pleading emphatically for Nathan's claim to be allowed. This letter must have had a decisive effect. Of Nathan he wrote:
    "But I should reproach myself were I not to exhaust all proper means to establish what I solemnly believe to be a clear, legal and valid claim for a poor bedridden, half starved soldier of the revolution, who literally cries to me for help, to prosecute what he conceives, and what I conceive, to be his rights under the law."

    A typed copy of the Certificate issued for his claim appears on the next page. It was made retroactive to March 4, 1831 and his widow, Delphy recovered the sum. On Dec. 29, 1853, Delphy's application for the widow's pension of half-pay was executed.

    Nathan Byars had died in poverty Aug. 18, 1846 and was buried in the family graveyard behind the house and outbuildings. It would seem that he had died in obscurity, but in the late summer of 1971, descendants from all over the country gathered at his gravesite to dedicate a permanent government marker at his grave. It is reported by Clovis Byars Herring that in 1985 when she visited the cemetery the stone was in pieces and there was no sign of the DAR marker that was put there.

    It is not known when Delphy Byars was born or when she died. She is enumerated in the Census of 1850, Spartanburg District, SC:

    #1278 Delphia Bian 65 SC
    Juda Turner 36 SC male
    Simpson Russ 22 SC
    Miranda " 10 SC
    John H. " 8 SC
    Barbara " 5 SC
    Sarah " 3 SC


    According to this census record she was born in 1785, but in the Census of 1860, Spartanburg District, SC, she was living at Cowpens with the family of Robert and Delilah Martin, and was born in 1776. It is not known who the people were who were living with her. The last mention of her is in a letter which was found among the papers in Nathan's Pension File. It was written July 20, 1937 by A.H. Hiller, Executive Assistant to the Administrator, to Will Franke of Birmingham, AL. He states that in 1868 Delphy Byars was living about sixteen miles north of the Spartanburg Court House.

    Nathan Byars, was born in Granville Co., NC sometime in 1749 and, according to his pension declaration, he had no proof of his birthdate except that his father told him that he was a small boy at Braddock's defeat.

    At the time of his entry into the service, he was a resident of Caswell County, NC and was drafted for a 3-months tour of duty, serving as a Private under Captain Cunningham and Captain Forbes (?) (Forker?) in the Regiment commanded by Col. Ramsey and Major Moore. He was drafted for two additional tours of duty and later volunteered for a three-months tour. He did not remember the dates of his services; however, his declaration for pension, indicated that he was in the service `at the time of the battle of Eutah Springs, Kings Mountain, and at the time of Gates' defeat', although he did not fight in any of those battles. During the various tours of duty, Private Byars was stationed principally at Hillsborough, and adjacent counties, and, during one tour, went out against the Indians' in the western part of the State. In support of his claim for pension, two of his neighbors, Rev. Drury Scruggs, and Jesse Scruggs, attached a statement supporting the facts given by the claimant, Nathan Byars.

    Sometime just prior to, or during the Revolution, Nathan Byars was married to Drucilla Harrelson, Drucilla Harrelson born 1750, in Hanover Co., VA, daughter of Burges Harrelson and Elizabeth Green. According to a Rutherford Co., NC book 25, page 174, Nathan was ordered by the court to pay Drucilla $50.00 cash. Thought to be a divorce. After the divorce of Nathan and Drucilla, in 1799, Drucilla went to live with her daughter Elizabeth Byars Watkins in or near McMinnvile, TN. She later went to live with her daughter Nancy Byars Walker. She lived there until her death in 1816. Nathan later married Delphy Logan on October 8, 1819, and at least one, and possibly more, children were born of this marriage. Delphy Logan was born about 1779, and was married to Nathan Byars on October 8, 1819 in Spartanburg District, S. C. by Rev. Joshua Richards.

    Nathan Byars purchased 200 acres of land from James Webb on April 10,1783, located on Main Broad River in Rutherford County, NC. A few years later in 1795, part of this land was sold to Williams Dobbins {special note not included in article - William Dobbins is the 4th great-grandfather of Cecil VanDyke}. Byars moved to that area now in Cherokee County, SC about 1822, and on April 5, 1826, received a South Carolina State grant for 394 acres of land, in Spartanburg District located on the headwaters of Island, Suck and Buck creeks, part of an original grant to James Steadman. This land included that tract that is now the Cowpens National Battleground. Part of this land was sold by Byars to James H. Ezell on November 16, 1840, and on January 6, 1886, James Ezell sold part of th land, but reserved one acre, where the Cowpens Battleground monument now stands, as belonging to the Washington Light Infantry Company of Charleston, S.C. The federal government later erected the present monument on the site.

    Nathan Byars died August 18th, 1846, at the age of 97 years, and his grave is located about 1/2 mile from the battleground monument, about 11 miles west of Gaffney, Cherokee County, SC.

    Hello Becky.

    Writing in hopes you can help me identify my ancestor, Joseph Gill:

    Do you know this person?

    Thank you,

    David,

    This appears to be my information alright.....but, I have nothing more on Joseph at the present except that he was a Jr. and they probably did come out of Chesterfield Co., VA. Wish I had more to offer. Becky

    of 3841


    I posted this on rootsweb today and am posting here too:

    I need info and I mean ANY INFORMATION you may run across on HENRY GILL b. 1780-1785. I have a copy of a sale of partial land grant where Henry bought 20 acres from John White, possibly from NC. The sale was dated 1818 in Knoxville, TN. Grant was signed by then TN Governor Joseph McMinn. The 20 acres was located in Warren Co., TN. It is believed Henry was the son of JOSEPH GILL, b. mid 1700s (and maybe Sarah)but I have nothing on either. Joseph born VA and died NC.

    In 1830 Henry was listed in McMinn Co., TN census.

    In 1840 Henry was listed in White Co., TN and in 1841 he sold household goods (including beds,bed tables, etc) to settle a debt. I lose him after this.

    Henry has son SAMUEL who is my g/g/grndfather/ SAMUEL born about 1808 and listed

    1830 McMinn Co., TN
    1840 White Co., TN
    1850 Bledsoe Co., TN I believe he died betw. 1850-1860 as Malinda Davis whom he married July 12, 1838 in White Co., TN is listed in the 1860 Bledsoe Co., TN census without him.

    These families lived in/around White, Warren, Cumberland, Smith, Putnam, VanBuren, Brandley and Hamilton Cos. TN
    HENRY'S SIBLINGS include William, James, Jane/Jennie. She married Harrel Byars of Buncombe Co., NC and they removed and died in McMinnville, Warren Co., TN. There may be more siblings I do not have.

    I believe this line connects with Chesterfield Co., VA family and have some leads in Rutherford, Granville, Franklin Cos., NC. JOSEPH according to LDS was buried in ROWAN Co., NC maybe before 1795 but it is LDS info.

    Other connections include McJunkin and Carr/Kerr names. I have be searching this line since 1982 and hope you have run across something that may help.

    Thanks! Becky

    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?

Also listed son Paul, daughter Ann Chiles, daughter Judith Harralson, granddaughter Rebeckah Sims, wife and all 5 children begotton of Paul Harralson I. Cr.

The plantation where Paul, Sr. lived, all land and appurtenenaces were left to Paul, Jr. (no children were listed) (Record Book 46, New Kent County, Virginia). Paul, Sr. married about 1734 to REBEKKA BURGESS b. 1670, d. after 1734 in Hanover, Virginia. Rebecca’s father was PETER BURGESS b. 1630 in Holland. Paul was a guardian over JAMES PERRIN in 1713.

Paul leased 360 acres of land in 1705 in Hew Kent County, Virginia. There are numerous records, between 1715 and 1743, available in the Vestry Book of St. Paul’s Parish in Hanover Co., Virginia. Listings involved clearing roads, and forming precincts and appointing overseers for them. Last appears in Vestry of Books of Virginia 11/18/1743. After Jan 1739 the family was in Edgecombs Co., N.C. buying land 10/23/1740 that they sold 4/9/1741 to John Hardy. 11/29/1744 he petitions for 450 acres of land in Fredericksborough Township, near present-day Camden, S.C.

I've suppressed the footnotes to save space; most sources are secondary at best, so if anyone has different and more reliable information, please let us know.

    Notes for REBECCA BURGESS:

    Rough check of name frequency at rootsweb.com suggests that Rebecca and/or her parents were born in what is now the UK. Holland was a frequent stop for Brits escaping religious persecution.
    The cohesion of such refugees suggest that the Burgess family may have travelled with the Lewis family; Patience Lewis, whose father John was born in Wales, married Paul Harrelson II.

    My aunt has the correct info, but going by memory , I think my Benjamin Harrelson was the one who was the son of Paul & Patience Lewis. He married Ruth & had children Celia (my dad's line) and Patience (my mom's line). If you think that makes for a family bonsai, I have found 3 Burgess lines on my father's mother's side & have yet to connect any of them :)
    It is my understanding that some of Woody Harrelson's Harrelson's came from North Carolina.

    Chambers & Harrelson (Caswell Co NC)

    Posted by: Meredith Adams Sheridan

    I see that several of you have roots in the Caswell Co and Person Co NC Harrelsons. Have any of you looked at the message from Mabel Chambers #133 on the Chambers board where she gives the children of William Chambers bn@1728. Of the 14 children, there are two married to Harrelsons: one Jane Chambers who married Ezekial Harralson (who died 1779)and my John Chambers who is believed to have married Rebecca Harrelson. Josias Chambers married in 1783 (Caswell Co NC) Nancy Stanfield. Elizabeth Chambers md Hugh Barnett. The Chambers, Stanfields, Harralsons, Barnetts, and Adams seem to be interrelated for several generations. Can anyone shed light on these families of Caswell Co, NC and then Person Co when it was split from Caswell. Thanks Meredith Adams Sheridan
