39809 Zachariah Magness was probably born about 1759 in Prince George’s County, Maryland, and appears to be the son of Peregrine Magness and wife Mary.

More research needs to be done on Zachariah, but the records of Morgan District Superior Court of North Carolina reveals quite a bit. In 1789 Zachariah was convicted of raping Arabella Twity Magness, wife of his brother Joseph; She also accused Joseph of aiding and abetting the act. The papers of Morgan District Superior Court (in Bucked County?) show that on March 12, 1789, the sheriff of Rutherford County was commanded to seize 54 pounds and 9 shillings from the property of Zachariah Magness for debts and costs in the Morgan Superior Court of Law and Equity in that case expended whereof the said Zachariah Magmess is convicted and liable of record.

He was convicted, but his sentence has not been found at this time. In 1789, long prison terms were seldom given; the usual sentences were whipping, branding, or hanging.

Was Zachariah executed? or did he receive other punishment and move away? His name has not been found further in the North Carolina records.

No claim was made on the estate of his brother William Magness who died in 1816, so we assume that Zachariah had died without heirs by that time.

39818 Zula Elmira Craig, daughter of Connie and Ida Wynn Yeager, was born on April 23, 1917 in Wright County, Missouri. She departed this life Friday, November 16, 2007 at the age of ninety years, six months, and twenty-four days, in the Hartville Care Center.

Zula was born in the Green Valley School District where she treasured her friends so much. She accepted Christ during revival at Coon Creek Church in 1940.

Zula was united in marriage to Jewell Craig on October 14, 1940. To this union one daughter was born. They made their home in the Hartville and Mansfield areas. In 1958, Jewell was called into the ministry, where she enjoyed the friends they had in churches they pastored until poor health came her way. She liked to read the bible until her eye sight failed. She loved all her family and enjoyed visiting with friends on the telephone.

She was preceded in death by her parents and four brothers.

Left to mourn her departure is her husband of sixty-seven years, Jewell, of Mansfield, Missouri; her daughter, Carol Giffin, of Lebanon, Missouri; two grandchildren, Mark Giffin and his wife, Lorrie, of Hartville, Missouri, and Michelle Underwood and her husband, Richard, of Granbury, Texas; five great-grandchildren, Leanne Brown and her husband, Lance, of Lebanon, Missouri, Kyra Giffin, of Hartville, Missouri, Josh, Samantha and Alex See, all of Granbury, Texas; one great-great-grandson, Caleb Brown, of Lebanon, Missouri; and many more relatives and friends.

In her short stay at the Hartville Care Center, she mentioned the good friends she had. She will be greatly missed, but our loss is heaven's gain.

Zula was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and was a caring neighbor and friend. We celebrate her life and accomplishments and will cherish the wonderful memories she has created for her family and many dear friends.

Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, November 18, 2007, in the Holman-Howe Funeral Home, Hartville. Burial will be in Coon Creek Cemetery. Visitation will be held Saturday evening from 7 - 8:30 p.m. under the direction of Holman-Howe Funeral Home of Hartville, Missouri.

3rd son

Nicholas Gyrlyngton was the son of William Gyrlyngton and Joanna.

Nicholas Girlington of Dighton-juxta-Escrik, son of William, the Lord Mayor of York, was also known as Nicholas Gyrlyngton of York, gentleman.

Nicholas was the executor of the will of his father, William, who died in the 22nd year of Henry VI (1444). His wife was the executrix of his estate. His mother's will was dated 19 Jul 1457.

He is shown on Visitation pedigrees as being one of 3 sons, but the only one survining at the time of his father's death.

According to the Visitation of Yorkshire of 1563/1564, Nycolas was listed as the 3rd brother and was noted to be of Hackforth, Yorkshire, England and descended from the "howsse of Gyrlyngton Hall in Rychmondshyre." He and his family were then noted as Gyrlyngton of Hackforth, Yorkshire.

He married Elizabeth, daughter of Caterycke of Stanwick.

Nicholas and his wife Elizabeth were mentioned in the will of his mother in 1457. Nicholas was bequeathed "a silver cup guilt in the shape of a nut". Elizabeth was bequeathed "a salt of silver, covered and parcel guilt." He and Elizabeth together were bequeathed "a great pair of iron andirons".

Nicholas Girlington, purchaser of Great Hutton, alias Hutton Longvillers, ancestor of the Girlingtons of Hackworth. Nicholas Girlington = ... dau. of .... Catterick of Stanwick.'
[Collectanea VI:190, pedigree of Girlington, of Girlington Hall[4]]

06 Mar 1450 Plaintiff (with others including the Archbisop of Cantebury) in a suit in Lancaster against multiple deforciants regarding lands around the Castle of Gleston, Aldyngham, Thirnom and Ulverston. Plaintiffs won the suit and received 1000 marks and all claims to the lands.
[Final Concords of the County of Lancaster, Great Britain Public Record Office, page 171]

Evidently, Nicholas had been wrongfully imprisoned and died while in prison. To date, have been unable to document the reason for the imprisonment, or the precise location. However, from the following, the crown made restitution to his widow,

From the "Calendar of the Patent Rolls Preserved in the Public Record Office" - Page 381
by Great Britain Public Record Office - Great Britain - 1897
Grant to Elizabeth Gyrlington, late the wife of Nicholas Gyrlington, and the heirs male of the body of said Nicholas, for his good service to the king and the king's father Richard, late duke of York, and for his imprisonment and death, and for the relief of herself and their two sons and one daughter, of all the messuages, lands and tenements late of Edmund Fyssh, late of York, a "taillour" in the city of York, forfeited to the king by an act of Parliament at Westminster, 4 November 4 Edward IV; and, release to her as executrix of the will of the said Nicholas of all issues received by the said Nicholas and her from the same, and of all debts and accounts.

Conflicting sources on the given name of Nicholas' wife. His will was administered by "his wyfe Elisabeth". However, the marriage license issued in Howdenshire listed the names of Edward Saltmarshe and Agnes. License issued 06 Sep 1471
(Howden Parish Archives)

Majority of sources state the Agnes on the license was a mistake as they all concur her name was Elizabeth - Burke, Maddison, Stirnet

It appears William followed his uncle Stephen to York. His uncle died in York in 1394

William was a citizen and draper of York. He was Sheriff of the City of York in 1427, Lord Mayor of York in 1441, Member of Parliament for the city of York in 1442. His wife Johanna was executrix to his will in the 32nd year of Henry VI (1454). William also owned lands in Gaynsford in Sedbergh, Durham County.

He is mentioned as William "the elder" (de antiquo) in the Inventroy of Henry Bowet, Archbishop of York. This would indicate one of William and Johanna's son's was also named William. However, this younger William had died prior to the date of William's will.

Nicholas Girlington was the son of Nicholas Girlington and Elizabeth Hansard. He became legal heir to the family holdings at Hackforth following the death of his brother Christopher sometime before 1550. Nicholas, IV was identified as Lord of Hackforth and was living in 1585. Nicholas died intestate in the 38th year of Elizabeth I (1597).

Hornby Parish records show his date of burial as 28 May 1597 and his estate Inventroy appraisal proved on 18 Nov 1599

1568 - Mentioned in his brother-in-law's will (Sampson Wyvill)

The Gyrlyngtons of Hackforth recorded their pedigree in 1584

Nicholas purchased lands from his borther-in-law, Geroge Pudsey, in 1585. George was the second husband of Faith Gyrlyngton. George died about 1590 and Faith in 1617.

In 1590 it was noted that Nicholas Girlington, the last but one of the Hackforth pedigree, was living at Sandhall, in the parish of Howden. This estate is in the township of Skelton and lies near, and is almost enclosed by, the banks of the Ouse river; and is opposite the port of Goole. In Johnstons MSS, relating to the county of York, it is stated that the widow of Sir John Girlington (fourth son and successor of Nicholas) sold Sandhall to Mr Walter Blakiston of York.
Source: Collectanea Topographica Et Genealogica vol VII, page 401

Howden parish records show Nicholas was buried on 28 May 1597. The parish records only record the burial date, not the location of burial. He had died intestate (without a will) so there is no written record as to where he had requested to be buried.

Hackforth, in the parish of Hornby, wapentake of Hang East, and liberties of St. Peter's and Richmondshire; 1¼ miles ESE. of Hornby, 4 miles NNW. of Bedale. (North Rding)

Sand Hall, (the seat of William Sholfield, Esq.) in the township of Skelton, and parish of Howden; 3 miles SSE. of Howden, 13 from Selby. (East Riding)

Skelton, in the parish of Howden, wapentake and liberty of Howdenshire; 2 miles SE. of Howden. This village lies close to the river Ouse, and near the Howden Dyke Ferry, where passengers are landed from the steam packets from Selby to Hull about noon. (East Riding)

A considerable amount is known about John Hoton Esq., and is excellently described by W. E. Hampton in John Hoton of Hunwick and Tudhoe, County Durham, The Ricardian, VII (1985), pp. 2-17.

John lived during the Wars of the Roses, which were fought between the Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster, and was firmly aligned with the Yorkists. In 1480, there was a large Scots raid, and King Edward IV appointed his brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester, as Lieutenant-General of the North to combat the threat. The Duke issued Commissions of Array for the northern counties, and John Hoton was one of the Commissioners for Durham. John Hoton was to serve under Gloucester for the rest of his life.

When Edward IV died in 1483, Gloucester was appointed protector of the 13-year-old Edward V, but chose instead to declare himself King, as Richard III, and imprison Edward and his younger brother in the Tower. These were the ... Princes in the Tower ..., supposedly murdered by Richard. Gloucester surrounded himself with northerners: when he set out towards London after Edward's death in 1483, it was with ... a competent number of gentlemen of the North, all clad in black .... John Hoton was among them, and was with Gloucester throughout the brief but turbulent period of his Protectorate. John Hoton also played a prominent part in suppressing the rebellions in the south that followed Richard's coronation. By December 1483, Hoton had been appointed Esquire for the Body to Richard III, and was granted several manors in Hampshire previously held by Sir William Berkeley, who had been one of the rebels. Although Hoton retained his lands in the North, much of his subsequent work was in the south: for example, he was Commissioner of Array for Hampshire in 1484 and 1485 (as was Richard Hansard of Walworth). Hoton was also constable of Christchurch Castle, near Poole.

John Hoton probably died at the Battle of Bosworth Field, near Leicester, in August 1485, where Richard III was defeated by Henry Tudor, who then became King Henry VII. Richard himself died in the battle. John Hoton was buried in the chapel of Trinity College, Oxford (formerly Durham College). Unfortunately, his brass is no longer there.

39826 [Hale.FTW] An old Bible record found in Decatur Co., GA gives births of Jeremiah Pickett Hale and Nancy Jane Wade, as well as for several of their children: Jeremiah Pickett Hale b. 15 Jan 1811 Nancy Wade b. 20 Dec 1803 Married 1827 Issue: Sparrel Chancellor Hale 1829 Creed Hale 1831 Caroline Melinda Hale 1 Mar 1835 Catherine Amelia Hale 8 Mar 1837 Ruth Loutitia Hale 25 May 1839 John Powell Hale 1841 Martha Jane Hale 20 Dec 1843 d. 24 Dec 1915 The dates for Jeremiah and Nancy differ from other sources.

Dr. Jeremiah Pickett Hale and his wife, Nancy Jane Wade Hale, are buried in the Pikeville Community Cemetery, Pikeville, Bledsoe County, TN Jeremiah Pickett Hale was son of Francis Hale, and grandson of Thomas Hale and his first wife, Rachel Sheridan. His grandfather married, second, Nancy Wood. Two of the children of that marriage, Peter W. Hale (m. Sarah Manning) and Elizabeth Hale, (m. Samuel Manning), migrated to White County (Sparta) TN in 1837. These two were half-brother and sister to Jeremiah Pickett Hale's father, Francis Hale, but they were near the same age as Jeremiah Pickett Hale. In late 1840's, Jeremiah Pickett Hale and his family migrated to TN, first to Cannon Co.; then to Van Buren Co., then settled in Bledsoe Co. All these counties are adjacent to White County, where his half uncle and aunt and their families lived at the time.(They later- 1851-migrated to Illinois.)

FAMILY TALE ABOUT THE MIGRATION OF THE JEREMIAH PICKETT HALE FAMILY (As told by his g-granddaughter, Eliza Jane Ewell Anderson)

Jerry Hale walked from Virginia with his family when Aunt Ruth White was small. Her carried her across the natural bridge. They came to Pikeville [Tenn.]. Creed and Sparrel got mad and left Pikeville and settled at Pea Ridge. [NOTE: Actually Jeremiah Pickett Hale brought his family to Cannon Co.--they were there on 1850 census. Before the 1860 census, all the family, except Creed and Sparrel, were in Van Buren Co., Creed and Sparrel had married and remained in Cannon Co., By the 1870 census, Jeremiah and his family were in Bledsoe Co., living in Pikeville, where they lived until both he and his wife died. They are buried in the Pikeville cemetery. It is, of course, possible that Creed and Sparrel initially moved from Cannon Co., with the rest of the family, and did actually "get mad" and return to Cannon Co. However, the more likely story is that their wives wanted to remain in Cannon Co., so, of course, they did.

39827 [Hale.FTW] Cora Hale Byford, a granddaughter of Creed Wade Hale and Nancy Jane Ashford, stated in 1961 that Creed Wade Hale's wife, Nancy Jane Ashford, and James Monroe Anderson's wife, Ann Elizabeth Ashford, were sisters, and that their father's name was George Ashford, but she didn't know what their mother's name was.. Hale, Creed Wade (I31304)

39829 [Lila Garner]

Nicholas GILLENTINE was born about 1676 in England, and had immigrated to Virginia by about 1710, when he married Eleanor Echols. Francis Gill[1] writes,

"I am very confident of the information back from us [he brings some lines of descendancy lines down to the present {about 2000}, but our line enters the family with Richard and Sarah (Hillsman) Borum] to Nicholas Gillentine, because I have done the research myself.

"Nicholas Gillentine" seems to be the immigrant for the family. There are no others of the surname, or likeness of that surname, in Virginia earlier. His birth year does fit the second marriage of John Girlington [the man thought to be his father]…. As with other cases in genealogy, a ‘leap of faith’ is required."

Two things make it certain that Nicholas Gillentine was the immigrant: Francis found no others of that surname or likeness of that surname, in Virginia, earlier than or contemporaneous with Nicholas; and Echols[2] signed a family genealogy[3] on 14 June 1850, in which he writes in his own quaint style,

"Old English John Echols--had 3 Daughters which I would have inserted had Known enough about them to give any satisfactory account of them---I only Know they married Outlandish men-one an Englishman named Nicholas Gilington---of their family I know nothing..."

By "outlandish", Milner certainly means that they were immigrants, although the term in today’s usage does not suggest that definition. Wading through Milner’s history is difficult and he gives no dates, but his outline of the family has been found to be surprisingly accurate by those who have followed his clues and used census records and state and county documents to prove his statements.
Nicholas and his wife were the parents of one son and four daughters. If there were other children, they have not been identified.
I have seen conjecture that after his wife Eleanor died, he married an Elizabeth Ricketts. I do not know whether this is correct.
A transcription of his will follows:

"In the Name of God, Amen. I, Nicholas Gillington of Halifax Co., being weak in body but in sound and perfect sense and memory, thanks be to God for same, Calling to mind that men must die and after that must come to judgement, do consider that what of our affairs are not settled in this life cannot be settled hereafter, do make and ordain this, my last will and testament, acknowledging this to be my last will and testament, disannulling all other wills whatsoever, and to proceed, I shall give my estate as followeth, to-wit:

I give to my daughter Catherine Brown one feather bed, to her and her heirs;

to Elizabeth Collins I give one feather bed, to her and her heirs;

to Elizabeth Chisum, daughter of John Chisum, I give one feather bed, to her and her heirs;

to my son John Gillington I have given 400 acres of land which I intended should be his full portion, nevertheless, to take matters out of dispute, I give to his heirs five pounds cash.

To John Chisum I give the land and plantation which I now possess in Amelia Co., containing 300 acres, to be at his own disposal for which reason he is to pay to Catherine Brown or to her heirs, -20. current money; to Elizabeth Collins or her heirs, -20.; to Ann Hillsman or her heirs, -20.; to Eleanor Chisum or her heirs, -20.; to Priscilla Hendrick, my granddaughter, or her heirs, -20.;

and as for my negro woman Rose, she shall choose her mistress among my daughters, and they that she shall choose shall pay -20. to be equally divided among all my children now living and my two granddaughters, which is Elizabeth Chisum, wife of John Estes, and Jerushea, daughter of John Gillington, deceased.

I therefore make and ordain John Chisum my whole and sole executor of this, my last will and testament, made in the year 1772, and on the 21st day of October.

"In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.

"Nicholas Gillington

"Witnesses:
John Dyer
John Templeton
Elizabeth Lack"

He died in 1774 in Halifax County, Virginia, and is buried there.

There is a hand-drawn picture on the outside of Nicholas’ will, believed to have been drawn by Nicholas himself, that purports to look like Thurland Castle in Yorkshire. Francis describes the drawing as bearing a remarkable resemblance to the left wing of the castle as it looks today.

There is no question that the name was earlier "Girlington", and a Girlington family inhabited that castle, having been driven out during one of the revolutions there.

A ‘genealogy’ for Nicholas follows, which Francis Gill believes is accurate but requires a ‘leap of faith’, because it cannot be, or at least has not yet been proven; note that the name ‘Nicholas’ was in the family early:

She is not the Elizabeth Milner, born about 1680, daughter of John Milner and Katherine, who is a sibling of Person Number 1239 in this compilation; the time is wrong by about 100 years. There was a Milner in Virginia by 1624 when he is found on a census, while John, the immigrant Milner in our line, arrived in North America in 1659.

Excerpted from Homer Clonts' letter dated, November 23, 1992:

"A little more background on my grandfather, William Presley Clonts:

He moved his family from Georgia to Arkansas after the Civil War, where he apparently practiced law and preached. They also had a ranch in Arkansas.

One of the sons by the earlier marriage (Samuel, I think) promised to take care of all the family's business and sell the ranch. Meanwhile, grandmother moved back to Bluffton, Ala., where she taught school to support her large family. All of the sons in the family became railroad men."

This is wonderful information for me!!! I feel certain that your W. P. Clonts was my Great-Grandfather, William Presley Clonts, b. Feb 5, 1826, in Morgantown (Burke Co.), NC. He died, Sept 21, 1884, in Malvern (Hot Springs Co.), Arkansas. He had 2 wives, 1st Mahalia R. Spriggs and 2nd Mary Elizabeth Frost (my direct line is through her). William had a brother, Michael Asbury. William is listed in the 1860 Floyd County Census with wife, Mahilia. Both William and Michael are listed in the 1864 Census for Reorganizing the Georgia Militia, Coweta County. Each was listed as "exempt" because they were ministers. I have no record of either serving in the Civil War. While researching early marriages in GA, ran across a marriage performed by M. A. Clontz on 11-25-1857 in Gordon Co., GA. A Rev. M. A. Clonts is listed as minister at different churches/times in Grimes Co., TX. In the "History of Whitfield County", Rev. M. A. Clonts is listed as Master of Dalton Lodge No. 105, F. & A.M. 1857. Any information that you have to share would be greatly appreciated.

Cited from Burke County Misc. Records, "A List of the Disaffected men Returned

Confiscation Act:

...Glance, Jacob."




Scenario: Jacob, a man at least in his thirties, no doubt with family, is now
sought by the new government for sedition because his alleged royalist
activities. What could he do? He cannot flee north, south or east because he
would still be in a populated area (and law-enforcement) so it is to the West
where he must flee.The West was still wilderness and as yet not subject to the
benefit of society, i.e., clerks, magistrates, sheriffs, etc., and it was
there that offered him his best hope of escape and a place to begin a new life
for himself and his family.

This would construe likely circumstances for the origin of the CLAUNCH family
in Kentucky. The earliest Kentucky records, circa late 1790's, report the
beginnings of the Jeremiah Claunch family. This Jeremiah, true to custom,
could have been named after his paternal grandfather, Hieronymus "Jeremiah"
Glantz.

"John A. Clontz was an Elder in the Presbyterian Church, and we believe
records show that each succeeding generation has produced at least one Elder.

John A. and Martha Blair first settled at the old Clontz homestead near where
Goose Creek flows into Rocky River, but later moved to the old Blair home, now
known as the late John E. Haigler place. They had to following children;
Jeremiah, John, Jacob, James, Lynn and Isaac. The girls were: Matilda,
Hettie, Sarah, Josephine and Mollie. All of them are deceased with exception
of Isaac A., who is in his 79th year.

The Clontz family has been represented in every war that the United Sates has
ever fought. Jeremiah and George asnwered when England tried to oppress the
Colonies and some of the family was in both wars with Mexico. When thhe South
called for volunteers in 1861 - James, Jerry, Lynn and Isaac answered and went
with their comrades and stood and fought for what they thought to be right.
And when the call of 1917 came their grandsons; Guy Clontz, the Williams boys,
the McManaway boys, the Helms boys and many others of whom we have no record,
answered and were in the Wolrd War. The Clontz' have not only been patriotic,
but men of courage, patience and perseverance. They have been loyal citizens
and true to every noble cause....The family has inherited a great
reponsibility and a great trust has been handed down from generation to
generation. The family may be likened to a River that flows thru the
desert...its waters giving life and beauty to all."

Rebekka Burgess was my 6th great-grandmother. Here's what I have, including conflicting info and speculations that may stimulate hours of pleasant researching. 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.

PAUL1 HARRELSON (son of PETER HARRALSON) was born 1665 in Denmark, and died Apr 01, 1734 in St. Paul Parish, Hanover Co./New Kent Co., VA. He married REBECCA BURGESS Abt. 1690 in Hanover, VA, daughter of PETER BURGESS. She was born Abt. 1665 in Denmark, and died Aft. 1734 in Hanover, VA.

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.
Alternatively, BURGESS might have been anglicized from BERTGES.

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.

(b) there is no mention of Virginia as home-places...DAH

Hello Cousins!

Just a wee e-mail to let you know that I've discovered some interesting info regarding a possible connection (place) w/our ancestors, the McGregor brothers...William, Bartlett, John....possibly another brother, whose name is unknown to me.

Over a year ago, at the Bakersfield Scottish Highland Games, I visited one of the usual vendors, Tea & Sympathy, who deal in some very fine, sometimes old books. Being a book lover, I rarely pass up an opportunity to check through the racks. There was one book that took my notice, not that it was fancy or bright, just a wee worn green book w/the title of "The Road to Rannoch and The Summer Isles". I had to have it, so paid over $20 to take it home. Being I'm truly a busy & scheduled person, I've just now gotten round to reading this book. The author is T. Ratcliffe Barnett. The book was printed in Great Britain by Turnbull & Spears, Edinburgh, 1st edition July 1924. I'll send more info later when I have time to find my pages (lost my marker).

What's exciting to me is to find some place where possibly our ancestors went to school. Speaking of Rev. William McGregor...we know he came to the colonies to preach in the meeting houses, he had collateral to make the journey to the new world & to purchase property at some point after getting here. Thus, he was not exiled from Scotland by force (it would seem) & not without another shirt in his bag, so to speak. Where did he get his schooling? Was it at his mother's knee? Possibly, however, rather doubtful as in those days, girls/women normally were not schooled. This place once called Ossian's Glen...where is it today? We do know there is an Ossian's Loch, which is higher up from Rannoch...but, is still in the same locale...mix this in w/Glen Lyon, south...not an impossible idea. I've always thought Glen Lyon played a role in this somehow, having been there, it's making more sense to me. There is a kirk (church) in Fortingal in Glen Lyon....but, what I've just read in this book, makes me wonder about another possibility. A place called Dull. Whether it's there today, I'm not sure, however, where Dull was, a church was built over a burial place of Adamnan (Saint), and a school & college - said to be the first seminary of education mainland Scotland. Dull became famous as an educational center, but in the mid centuries, the school was removed to Dunkeld, and later to St. Andrews.

If any of you have time to research any of this in regards to our line of MacGregors, pls do, & keep us all posted. This is the first "clue" I've found that feels right, in a long time.

Keep searching...we'll get over the pond & documented one of these days, I'm certain of it.

Love to all,
Carolyne 
McGregor, William "The Preacher" (I27125)

"CALEB SWINDELL (SR.), son of JOHN SWINDELL, SR., was married to his first wife, KEZIAH _____, by 25 August 1767. We have been unable to indentify her parents. CALEB's will dated 26 November 1790, probated February Court 1791, mentions wife, ELIZABETH, and sons, CHRISTOPHER and CASON SWINDELL. His will dictated that the remaider of the estate should be equally divided between his children after the death of his wife, ELIZABETH.

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

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

Dear David,

Your information came in the mail today. Thanks ever so much.

I am sending part of the information we have now as an attachment. I will get the information together, that we have, starting with Owen MERRIMAN and send it later. My asthma & allergies are bothering me & I didn't get it all ready. Hope some of this is helpful. Bill & Barb Kelley


MERRIMAN/MERRYMAN


Info from Evelyn J. Russeff that she copied from records in Salt Lake Library [Did she mean LDS library in Utah?]

Records of Bledsoe Co., TN. Chancery Court Minute Book. 1847-1856 Pg 378--

James A Tulloss & Thomas N. Frazier Executors of Alexander H. Montgomery--vs--Lewis D. Merriman, Jesse Colbert, Nancy Colbert, Levi Green, Elizabeth Green, Owen Merriman, Allen B. Carrolton, Evaline Saxton, & Willie & Allen Merriman administrators on the estate of Mark Merriman deceased.

Be it remembered that this cause came on again to be heard on this 14th day of March 1848 before the honorable B. L. Ridly Chancellor & C (?) upon the report of Stephen Hicks the special Commissioner here to fore ordered in this cause & the exceptions filed by the defendants thereon which exception being since heard & understood by the court are ordered to be overruled & said report in all things confirmed from which it appears that the defendant Lewis D. Merriman was indebted to the complainants for principal & interest on the 15th day of March 1848 in the sum of $692.34 & that the distributive share of the said Lewis D. Merriman in the personal estate of his father Demarcus Merriman deceased in the hands of his administrators. Willie & Allen Merriman amounts to the sum of $350.38 & it further appears from said report that commissioners were appointed by the Circuit Court of Bledsoe County who assigned to the widow of the said Demarcus Merriman deceased dower in his real estate & also to the defendant Lewis D. Merriman his distributive share of residue of said estate unencumbered with the dower distinguished in the commissioners report as lot No. 9 & described as follows.

Beginning at the forked dogwood & corner to corner Levi Green in William Haskews line thence with Haskews line north 70 poles due west 50 poles to a stake in the line of lot No. 8. Thence South 67 degrees east to the beginning. (I didn't copy the rest).

Signed Thomas N. Frazier, Guardian of David H. Spring Exparte.

Hale & Johnathan Whiteside------ note with interest sum of $109.82 (about estate earlier).

Elizabeth Merriman vs Allen Merriman et als. Continued later.
(I didn't copy.)

Sept 1853--

Eliz Merriman vs James Robinson & William Gardener. About negro ownership-bill it is ordered & decreed that the bills of complainant be dismissed & that complainant pay the costs for which execution may ? sue at law against sd. complt. & her security Bryant Maryman.

Bryant Merriamn adm. of Eliz Merriman deceased. William Merryman, Elizabeth Green, Mary Merryman, Allen Merriman, Wyley Merriman, Wyly M. Colvert son of Nancy Colvert decd. Owen Merriman, Benton A. Carlton & the children of Eveline Lastor names.

Pg 590--Tues Mar 13, 1855

Unknown said Eveline being sister to said Benton A now deceased & Lewis D. Merriman.

Mary Merryman mentioned.

(There was so much on these Merriman's in the court record that I just gave up writing it down. At that time I didn't recognize any names. I was in Salt Lake Library & was trying to get as much information that I could on my lines.) Now I wish I had.

I gathered all my information that I have collected over the years & for at least a month, I have been trying to piece it all together.

We all descend from John & Audrey Merryman, John the immigrate. Came in early 1600's to VA then they went on to MD. All of that information is in MD Hist. Mag. by Culver. I have that.

1st generation was John & Audrey.
2nd generation was Charles Merryman Sr.
3rd generation was Charles Merryman Jr.
4th generation was John Charles Merryman, called Charles, he married Millicent Haile.MERRIMAN/MERRYMAN

I don't know from which of John Charles children we descend from, but I think it was a Charles that had a wife Elizabeth. He died and the family eventually moved to Bledsoe Co., TN, remarried. I descend from his second wife. He had about 4 children under 10 when wife Betsy Cook died. Elisha, Malachia Merryman and a few others followed him to IL. Others stayed in Bledsoe Co., TN.

They say most of Bledsoe Records had been destroyed, but I know that the one I just typed off is still available, think it was on film. They all originated from Granville, NC, They were in Lancaster, VA. They may never had moved, when the states redid their state lines. They may have been just over the line.

So many in those days couldn't read or write and names spelled as they sounded.

Book: Marriage Records 1765-1810 Mecklenburg Co., VA
By: Katherine B. Elliott Copyright 1963, reprint 1984

Notes on Marriage Records

In compiling this volume of early marriage records of Mecklenburg County, it was deemed advisable to examine the marriage records of Granville County, NC, because of the close association of the early families in the two counties.

Many of the early residents of Granville County had settled first in Mecklenburg & later moved to Granville. Colonial Granville County was established in the same year, 1746, in which Lunenburg County was created. Warren, Vance & the present Granville, all boarding on Mecklenburg County, were a part of Colonial Granville County. Many of the early Mecklenburg County people owned land on both sides of the state line dividing the two counties; & in many of the early wills reference is made to land owned in North Carolina.

Have tentatively assigned "James Marion" as son of "Jeremiah" for the
following reasons;

(1) Herman James Clontz, Jr., grandson of James Marion, states in a
telephone interview, November 18, 1992, that he could not identify
his great-grandfather, but he is certain that he married a "Byram".

(2) Thelma Clonts identifies the wife of Jeremiah as "Mary L. Byram" and
their marriage occurred, August 11, 1864, per her research.

Will obtain marriage records to ascertain location, witnesses, etc. Although
this is not absolute proof, feel that circumstantial evidence provide enough
to deduct James Marion and his progeny to the main famly tree.

Gerald, Charles' son, just telephoned to let me know that his father passed away yesterday. I met Charles at the Hennessee Re-Union, July of 1991, and had a wonderful time with him and his wife, Elizabeth. Charles was one of my first contacts in researching the HENNESSEE history. He was so keen to be helpful and provided me much information regarding his family line. I hope that I, too, was able to shed light on his family history and the origins of our family.

One could not help but like and admire Charles. He had a fulfilling life and an adoring family. Charles was a sweet person who loved his family and shall be missed by everyone who knew him...DAH

(Next door to her father, Jacob)

Clontz, Jacob 10 M W Farm Laborer GA
William 6 M W GA
Sarah 3 F W GA
Perinellia 1 F W GA

The above children were living with the following:

Butler, William 22 M W Farm Laborer GA
Mary 32 W F Keeping House GA

_____

Deduction allows us to conclude that:

1. Mary has married three times before 1870.
2. William, Sarah & Perniellia are misidentified with "Clontz" surnames.
3. Don't know who Jacob is. He could have been a Tidwell.
4. Property probably belonged to her father, Jacob, before she married.

Steven Kent Jones recalls in his letter dated, September 7, 1995;


"My grandmother's little sister Gladys McGee died when she was five years old.
She fell from a loft while playing. My grandmother was eight at the time,
Gladys was very sick and in and out of consciousness for several days before
dying. Everyone was, of course very upset, but my grandmother was
devastated. She kept many of her sister's things, including her money, which
was all of a shiny new dime. When she was about 70, she game me the dime, a
1914 Liberty Head, which I still have and it looks virtually uncirculated. By
the way, my grandmother also named her second child, now Gladys Cantrell,
after her sister."

Jacob Harmon of Virginia and Kenutcky

Posted by: Richard Davis Date: March 01, 1998 at 22:50:04
of 5775

Does anyone have additonal information on the children of Jacob Harmon? Jacob was born about 1730, the son of Jacob Harmon (b. c 1705-d. 1756) of New River, Virginia and died after 1801 at either Pulaski County, Kentucky or Livingstone County, Kentucky. He was married to Sarah who was still alive in 1801. He was probably the father of the following children;

1. Jacob Harmon Jr., b. c 1752. d. 1839, Garrard County, Ky.
2. Israel Harmon, b. c 1754. d. after 1805, probably at Livingstone County, Ky. He was married Keziah Thompson in 1788 at Lincoln County, Ky.
3. William Harmon, b. c 1758. d. bet 1794 and 1799 at either Montgomery County, Virginia or Pulaski County, Ky.
4. Lowes/Louisa Harmon, b. c 1760. She married Jonathan Taylor of Garrard County, Ky.
5. John Harmon, b. c 1767. d. after 1825, Marion County, Indiana. He married Elizabeth Byrd in 1787.
6. ?Valentine Harmon, b. c 1769. he married Mary Thompson at Lincoln County, Ky in 1793.
7. Mary Harmon, b. c1771. She married James Baxter in 1789 at Lincoln County, Ky.
8. Rachel Harmon, b. c1774. She married Joseph Horn in 1794 at Lincoln County, Ky.

I think that Jacob may be William's father given:

a. His age
b. William's first male child is named 'Jacob Byrd Harmon'...DAH

Go to http://www.us-census.org/pub/usgenweb/census/ky/whitley/1820/index.txt for listing of Jacob & Valentine who are enumerated in the 1820 Whitley Co.,KY Federal census

Males Females
Head of Household to-10 10-15 16-18 18-25 25-44 45+ to-10 10-15 16-18 18-25 25-44 45+


Jacob 3 1 0 0 1 0 3 0 0 0 1 1

After further speculation, this Jacob appears to be a sibling of William...DAH

Another possible antecedent for William...
