ur research has led us to believe that MICHAEL NEIMAN m. Catherine (possibly surname Johnson) in PA. We think they may have lived in Northumberland CO PA in the 1765-85 era.
Anyone with Neiman data in that area of PA?

Thanks, Bettye

Her name is Catherine Johnson possibly sister or daughter of Jeffrery Johnson. There was incorrect info put forth by a researcher some years ago, suggesting Sarah Catherine Johnson was wife of Mochael Neyman.This was based on Will of Michael Neyman recorded and probate in Lincoln County,N.C. A copy of the will was aquired and it shows that the will was written in 1794 and probated in1795. Michael Neyman of that line was alive in1818 and therefor is not the same Michael Neyman, the author of the will on Lincoln County, N.C.. Michael Neyman of Blount County, Tennessee died without a will.

I'm a few years late , but I have the answer from the Bible of William Wootton. William Wootton was b. Abt. 1746 in VA, d. Nov. 1836 in Warren County,TN and was buried at Blue Spring Cemetery in Warren County.

He had eight children: Benjamin, Jesse, Rodam, John, William b. Nov. 12, 1780, Polly, Elizabeth, and Jonathan.

Hope this helps. You can email me at bsherwood@blomand.net.

My mother had Martha the widdow as Martha Isham I do not know where she found this information Her notes are packed away mostly in chronological order. She kept everything but wrote several books on local history and had a newspaper column for 35 years on local news and kept copies first handwritten then typed and last printouts from the computer fortunatley since she had several over the years the last one quit last year. Anyone with information on Martha Isham Chastain please contact me.

Ellen, there is good evidence to prove that Jonathan Floyd of Warrick County, Indiana was a son of Caleb Floyd and Ann aka Nancy Maynard of Maryland who settled on the VA/NC border. This evidence includes a long newspaper article by M. M. Rice, one of Jonathan and Tillitha's grandchildren, which appeared in the Enquirer, Boonville, Indiana, 4 April 1896. M.M. Rice was a son of Mariah Floyd Rice, who was living in Warrick Co. when this article was written.

I've noticed before that your Floyd family lived in some of the same places as some of the Bethels- Spartanburg, SC, and Warren Co., KY, and your Floyds and my Bethels were probably acquainted, but I don't know of any relationship between your Floyds and mine. If your Floyds weren't from MD, they probably weren't related- at least, not closely. I've never found any evidence to show that my Floyds were acquainted with the Bethels until they met in TN or KY. I'm appending the entire article mentioned above to this post since it's the only list I know of for the children of Caleb and Nancy.

Since the writer of the article had input from a woman who was the niece of these children, I think this list can be taken as fairly accurate, barring the possibility of children who died young- it does fit with Caleb and Nancy's census records. I'd like to hear from anyone who has any good evidence for their time in TN or KY. Caleb probably died there but Nancy may be the older woman who appears in one of Jonathan's census records in IN.
I notice as I write this that there's some variance in the names of the known daughters of Sampson Bethel from the list given in this article, which I'm not prepared to comment on at the moment, but is a matter for further study.

An article from the Enquirer, Boonville, Indiana, 4 April 1896. (Microfilm copy at Willard Library, Evansville, Indiana)

"Dickeyville
M.M. Rice Correspondent
For President in 1896
Hon. Claude Matthews
'Popular Government Must Prevail'

A letter from Spencer County, signed D.A. asking a multitude of questions about the bill introduced by Mr. Hemenway to pay Union Bethell for property destroyed during the late war, is to my hand and noted. This letter asks if there is any relation, either by affinity or consanguinuity existing between the Hemenways and Bethells.

Answer. As well as I can determine, the genealogy of the Bethell family of Warrick County runs thus: About the year 1766. in North Carolina, Sampson Bethell and Mary Cantrel were married. Contemporaneous with this event near Baltimore, in Maryland, Caleb Floyd and Nancy Mainard were joined in holy wedlock.

It seems that Sampson Bethell and his young wife were among the first pioneers who settled the state of Tennessee, then a part of the territory of North Carolina included in the grant to Lord Clarendon. This marriage was fruitful of many children, there being born to Sampson and Mary Bethell Larken, Cantrel, Green, Chester, Tilman, Cloud, Bluford, Tilitha, Polly and Esther. Later, Caleb Floyd and his wife migrated to Tennessee from Maryland, by way of Virginia, just what time they remained in Virginia, or when they arrived in Tennessee, does not appear, but they settled near the Bethell homestead, the location of which the writer can not find out. Caleb Floyd was of Dutch and his wife of Scotch extraction.

They had born to them seven children: Sally, Henry, Betsey, Anna, Thomas, Jonathan and Rachel.

These two families grew up together in the backwoods of Tennessee, and about the beginning of the present century Cloud Bethell and Rachel Floyd were married at the same time Jonathan Floyd and Tilitha Bethell were joined in wedlock.

We will now leave the Floyd branch of this great family tree and follow the Bethells down to the present time.

About the year 1820, Cloud Bethell with his family left Tennessee and settled in Orange County, Indiana, when, about this time, as nearly as I can determine Union Bethell was born.

There were four children older than Union: Thomas, Chester, Warren and Eliza: and three younger: Jonathan, Tillman and Frank.

This family remained in Orange County only four or five years and then removed thence to Warrick County, taking a claim in Owen Township near where Calvin Wiggins now lives.

Becoming dissatisfied here, Cloud Bethell moved into Hart Township and entered land on what was known long afterward as the old Doughty farm.

He soon removed from here to Boonville, where he opened a hotel in the northeast corner of the public square in a log building.

He died in Boonville about the year 1841; his remains were buried in the Mount Zion Cemetery in Hart Township, but were afterward removed to Newburgh.

Of the children of this family: Thomas, the oldest, is dead; he was an officer of some renown in the Mexican War; was married three times and died at Newburgh, where his widow lived until her death, which occurred a year or two ago.

Warren, Chester and Frank are now in California; Tilman lives in Kentucky; Union is still living in Newburgh, where he has resided for many years; his second wife and mother of his children was a sister of the late Judge Parrett.

All the old members of this noble family of pioneers were and are Jeffersonian Democrats, save Union, whose political history is well known in Warrick County. Some years back he was elected auditor on the Republican ticket; and as well as I remember, did a great deal of scolding and punching of certain Democrats in Warrick and Spencer Counties.

No, I can not agree with you as to Mr. Hemenway's motive in introducing the bill you refer to. I find no relation existing between the Hemenways and Bethells; and I believe he was prompted only by patriotic motives. Although Jim [Hemenway] was small during the war I believe if it were to be fought over he would fly right into the rebels just as Union Bethell did and make them feel very sorry he was living.

We should honor patriotism wherever and whenever we may find it. I am very glad Jim introduced this bill, as it has gone to the second reading, and no doubt will be placed in the Congressional Record thus enabling future generations to prove beyond question , that Indiana, your state and mine, which is very proud of us, was really represented in the fifty-fourth Congress.

Come again, friend D.A., it gives me great pleasure to answer all such questions."

Looking for info on Peter Lentz who married a woman whose first name was Chlore or Chloe. They had two sons: John Lentz, Sr., b.abt. 1758, and Henry Lentz, b. 2/7/1753 in Union Co., SC. John
Lentz, Sr., married a woman whose first name was Mary, and they lived and died in Buncombe Co., NC.

Henry Lentz married a woman whose first name was Sevilla in 1782 in NC, and died on 7/18/1835 in Lentzville, AL.

I am descended from John Lentz, and the family name became Lance by the time my ggg-grandmother, Nancy Ann Lance, married Joseph Caswell Neece, in TN.

If anyone is connected to this line, let me know. Am willing to trade info.

I believe Susannah Smithers, wife of William Hill,Sr., was born much earlier than 1763, I think about 1716. She was probably the daughter of Thomas Smithers and Susannah Singleton of Gloucester Co., Va. She married William in Caroline Co., VA, after which they moved to Surry Co., NC in the 1750's. They had 12 children.
You should not have trouble finding information on this family. They are well research, but beware, much of it is faulty.

Susanna Smithers and William Hill are my 5-great grandparents. I have her birth year as 1715, in Caroline Co, VA, and her death year as before 1777, in Stokes/Surry Co, NC. I have her parents as Thomas Smithers and Susanna Singleton in Richmond Co, VA. I have Susanna Singleton as the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Singleton. Robert died in 1724 in Gloucester Co, VA.
I am interested in corresponding with anyone having knowledge of or interest in these families.

James founded the Old Swindle College in Barry Co., MO, near Wheaton, Missouri. in 1855.


Hi Charles,
The obit is as follows and the paper has a picture of James Swindle and second Wife Elizabeth Gibson/ Davidson.
"While the Butterfield Overland Stage was the first stage coach to haul regular passengers and mail on a regular schedule through Barry Co to the West Coast it was by not means the only state route through Barry County.
Following the Civil War several other stage routes sprang up throughout the county including one from Pierce City to Fayetteville which came down the western side of Barry Co.
The home of James Swindle of Wheaton which served as a stage coach stop for the Pierce City to Fayetteville route was built shortly after the war by Swindle who had been born in 1822 in Linden, Perry County, Tennessee on the Swindle Prong of Cedar Creek.
A most industrious young man, James Swindle made a wagon for oxen, and everything belonging to it, bows for cover, and yoke for the oxen, loaded his property and set out for southwest Missouri in 1851. He came then to Barry County and during the Civil War was a blacksmith at Cassville. He was married first to Eliza Fly on August 19, 1852 and had Martha (Mrs. Jim Parks), John (Professor at Swindle College), LaFayette (A minister in the Christian Church), George, and Eliza (Mrs. Robert Carter Overton). After his first wife died in 1863 in the middle of the war, he remarried in 1866 to Mrs. Elizabeth Davidson and there were three children born to this union. Twins - Abe (at one time Tax Assessor and Collector for Barry County), Nannie (married Dr. Oscar Overton) and Mary Francis (married Dr. Jim Holmes). James Swindle died at his home at Corsicana on August 2, 1909.
The Swindle home which was torn down in 1905 had five fire places and its large commodious rooms provided refuge for many a weary traveler of the rough roads of that era.
Perhaps the most notable achievement of the Swindle family was the found of "Swindle College" Their son, Professor John Swindle, who started a subscription school on their premises in the early 1880's and erected the Swindle College Building in the year 1885 or 1886. Beginning with the first grade, courses were taught which would compare with those of the higher college levels. Courses in advanced mathematics and literature were taught by John Swindle, who won acclaim as a scholar at the University of Kentucky. Many young people boarded at the Swindle home while attending school at Swindle College down through the years. It was located two miles south of Corsicana at a spring after crossing Pogue's Creek. The college was located on a hill near the residence.
Swindle College in later years suffered the fate of many rural academies, becoming a consolidated school with Wheaton, and in 1955 the building was sold to Gray McMillen and was moved to his farm. The old bell which summoned generations of students to the study of the three R's is still in the belfry, and were it to be rung today within the hearing of its former teachers and pupils, there would doubtless be a strong pull of the listener heartstrings as they recalled the past chapters in the history of the sturdy old school.
Recently a great-great nephew of James Swindle, Tracy David Cary, President of the Pampa Genealogical Society of Pampa, TX visited the old landmarks of his family here compiling data from the cemetery, Bible, county and school records of the Swindle Family. He would appreciate any additional information.
{Article written in July 1960} Corsicana was in Barry Co but destroyed by a tornado and never rebuilt.

HI, Margaret,

Thank you for your responses to my posting. And thanks for the advice to watch for Lisa and Lynne. I don't recall having any correspondence with Lisa, but Lynne was one of the first people I corresponded with---back before email---when I was first working on this line. I was not sure she had continued to research because I knew that, at one point, she said she had "dispaired of" finding anything to get past her/our dead end.

The part about the Lost Colony is fascinating. I, too, had found that the Cherrys were "beyond memory" and also that they tended, always, to settle in swampland. Guess that area near Roanoke fills the bill in that respect. I know that the Cherrys were said, too, to get along well with the native people. Hmmmm... Could they have been survivors?

The associated sirnames to look for are always helpful. Ervin and Parker I knew. Long is new to me. Craft, Bragg, Duncan, Cunningham, Jaco and Gooding are to note, too.

My current "suspect" for our Joel's parent would be Jesse. This is based on a will of a Mr. Butler who mentioned his brother Joel, in TN. As far as we can tell, our Joel was the only one in TN at the time. Nearly impossible to be sure, as you know.

We can share info. I think we have about the same, though. My grandfather was A.P., his father, Joel Benson. J.B. was son of Irvin/Ervin, as you say, a sibling of your ancestor. I am curious about the sibling you have that others do not. I show eight children for Joel Cherry; nine for his son, Irvin.
Thanks again for your response.

Keep in touch.

Dear Jackie, Depending on where in Va ,Patience was born, she could very well be Cherokee. If you will study James Moody's books on the Cherokee and also the great geneaology book by Emmett Starr, you will find the connection. The lower part of Va that comes into contact with Tn, Kentucky,

North CArolina you will indeed find it was part of the Great Cherokee Nation. If she was listed as Cherokee in 1839 she was.

If I have a minute will look on the roll books and see if i can find her.

Dohiyo and may the Creater Bless you on your search !!!!!!!!

Many Byars/Byers descendants have been told they have a Native American Heritage. Has anyone been able to document a connection?

The Following is "A Combination of a Sketch of the Creek Country, in the Year 1798-1799" By Benjamin Hawkins (1848) and Letter of Benjamin Hawkins 1798-1806 (1916). These letters were written to James Byers from Benjamin Hawkins.

"Tellico, 15th April, 1797. I request you to pay the Shohaddookoh (The Bark) 15 dollars, upon his delivering of a sorrel mare, stolen from me, belonging to the Creek Department, and you will oblidge, Your obedient servant, B.H. P.T.A. for I affiars south of Ohio.

Mr. James Byers
Factor for the U. States."

"Cusseta, 9th November, 1797.

I have not heard one syllable of you since you left me; I suppose, notwithstanding, that you are well, or I should have heard you death announced in the newspapers. I find a number of my Creek family are likely to visit you this winter; they have gone towards Cumberland to hunt, and they have taken the traders' horses and some from the provident Indians who keep horse stamps.

I have written to Colonel Henley to aid me to put a stop to this abominable traffic. I have, at the request of the Upper Creeks, notified those who have horses to sell that they must have a certificate from me, or one from the head men of the town, countersigned in the last case by a trader. I expected some of these may be offered in your neighbourhood for sale, and in that case, I request you to note the pruchaser and report him to Colonel Henley or our friend, Mr. Dinsmoor.

I was informed some time past that you owed your appointment to a great man, who you have had the ingratitude to undermine. I am told Colonel Henley owed his appointment to the same man; The latter I said I believed, but as for you, I said I understood that a short billet from the Secretary of War had picked you up far to the east and placed you at Tellico.

I am informed you have Mrs. Butler with you and her amiable family; I wish it may be true; you must present my love to her, and assure her that I have been anxious ever since I had the pleasure to be acquainted with her, to be nearly allied to her, but I was to old for her daughter, and for herself too, If she was a widow: but as fortune would have it , behold , she is my daughter. I must send her a chapter on the rights of my Cherokee daughters, to the end so that if she has any contest with the Commandant, she easily prove at all time she is in the right.

I would be glad to hear from the Cherokee hatter; I want a hat, and fear I must send to Philadelphia for one. May I venture to apply to you for a chapter on gardening? Do you understand this business well? If you do not, let me inform you that the first thing to be done is to have the lot well fenced, the next place well planted, and lastly, well worked and kept free from weeds. I am, with the sincerest regard and esteem, Your obedient servant, B.H.

Mr. James Byers, U.S. Factor, Tellico.

This was published in The Byars-Byers Family Enquirer, Vol. II, No. 4 pp 100-101. Contributed by Columbine Livingston.

This places one James Byers in East Tennessee by April 1797. It would be interesting to learn who his parents were and if he had an Indian family.cbh

Barbara I am the person Emma Bass told you about. I have been trying to get something typed up to send to you and find out about price of the newsletter. Me and my sister both want to subscribe to the newsletter. I borrowed Emma's books but would like the price on those also.

My Blassingame line is Thomas Blassingame who married Mary "Molly" Roundtree. Their daughter Elizabeth "Betsy" married Nathan Byars 15 Nov. 1810 in Warren Co. KY. They are found on the 1850 Lawrence Co. AL census. Nathan and Elizabeth are buried in Bald knob Cem. in Lawrence Co. AL under a modern tombstone set about 1980. It gives his name as L.Nathan Byars b. 1795 (He was born 1776 NC) and his wife as Elizabeth Womack.

For thirty years I have tried to prove Elizabeth Womack as his wife. The reason I have not is because her last name was Blassingame.

I have copies of a Chancery Court Case that was filed against Molly Roundtree, Blassingame, Venalble. He first husband Thomas died about 1804/05 in Warren Co. KY. Molly married Larkin Venable in Warren Co. KY in 1811.

Molly had 9 children by Thomas Blassingame and one daughter by Venable.

The Court case filed in 1849 proves beyond doubt that Nathan Byars was the husband of Elizabeth formerly Blassingame. I am going to send you copie of these documents when I get a paper written showing connections.

Please contact me at cbhbacktracker@aol.com or clovisherring@windstream.net. Thank you.

I am looking at my copy of "Byars Family History" Copyright 1976 by Nell Byars Thaten. The binding was by Worth Bindery, Ft. Worth, Texas 76107. Published by Miran Publishers, Fort Worth, Texas 76116. It is a soft cover book, about the size of a sheet of paper folded in half. It has 185 pages, an Index,appendix and a Table of Contents. It brings Nell's "Byars Family" from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and to Texas.

The first known ancestor is Jonas Byars b. ca 1718. Jonas married Francis Collins. Two known children are named in the book.

# 1. William Byars, who m Elizabeth Bedford.
#2. Henrietta Byars, who married Joel Blackwell, the only known child for them was Mary Blackwell.

Mary Blackwell married Richard Arnold and they had the following children:

(1) Rebecca Arnold
(2) Joel Arnold
(3) John Arnold
(4) Benjamin Arnold
(5) Richard Arnold
(6) Henrietta Arnold, m. Joab Byars
(7) Cinderella Arnold
(8) James Arnold
(9) Sally Arnold
(10) Daniel Arnold
(11) Nathaniel Arnold
(12) Thomas Arnold
(13) Alfred Arnold.

Nell stated it was possible there was one or more children, names unknown to her.

William Byars , son of Jonas Byars and Frances Collins Byars, married Elizabeth Bedford, daughter of Jonas Bedford and Amasa "Mercy" Raymond. Mercy was a descendant of a man the signed the Mayflower Compact.

As I said before the book is well written and contains copies of Wills, Marriage Records and many pictures. Nell was a very thorough researcher. She and several other Byars Descendants worked together to accumulate documents for any person named Byars/Byers or a variant of the name. All of those people have passed away. If you cannot find a place to purchase the book then try to get your local Library to order it inter Library loan. Or you might try asking the LDS Library to put a copy on a CD and let you purchase it. Or if you can make contact with Nell Byars Thaten's children they may have copies for sell.

I will be glad to look up things for you, provided you can give me a Given Name as well as a Surname and a time period. My husband has a terminal illness and it may take me awhile to get back to you. I hope to put all the issues of the Byars - Byers Family Enquirer on a CD in the near future. There are 22 issues that answers the questions many of you are asking now. cbh

On the 1850 Spartanburg Dist SC, census, pg 168/169, family 1246 there is a Martin Family. All but Robert born SC

Martin, Robert 67 m. Blacksmith b. NC
Martin, Delilah 42 f. b. SC
Martin, Othelo 21 m
Martin, Narcussis 20 f
Martin, John 18 m
Martin, Ann 15 f
Martin, Jackson 14 m
Martin, Drucilla 13 f
Martin, Mesina 13 f
Martin, Delphin 6 f
Martin, Robert 1/2 (6 mo?)

For years there has been discussions on the parentage of Delilah. Some say she was d/o Nathan Byars b. 1746 and his first wife Drucilla Harrelson. Others say she was d/o of that Nathan Byars and his 2nd wife Delphy Logan.

I found where a Robert Martin md Delilah Lewellin 14 Dec 1839, Rockingham, NC. Also found where a Robert Martin md Serena M. Daniel 16 Sep 1828 SC. The Delilah thought to be Byars has been given the birth date of 1786, but the Delilah of the census above b. c 1807/8.
Drucilla Harrelson Byars was granted a separation from Nathan Byars in 1808. In those papers she says their trouble began in 1801 and that she had given birth to ten children.

In 1860 Spartanburg Dist. SC Robert Martin is shown as 80 yrs born SC. Delila was 53 b. SC. Some of their children are still in the household and also there is Delphy Byars age 84. Othelo Martin lives next door with Sarah and children Romeo, Mary, Avanice and Eddy.

Has anyone researched this family? Is there a death certificate for Othelo Martin or other children of Robert Martin and Delilah that gives the name of father and mothers maiden name? A death certificate for one of those children would lay to rest the debate. That is unless someone that did not know gave the information. My grandfather's death certificate has his birthday and death day correct. The info was given by a step-granddaughter and she knew nothing. Gave his brother as his father, the wrong place of birth and so on. Or if there is a marriage record for Robert Martin and Delilah Byars that would certainly lay it to rest. I would like to lay this issue to rest for the benefit of all.

Subject: I WAS WRONG about Nathan Byars Jr. See the real one

I was WRONG. When I published the Byars-Byers Family Enquirer, I thought the Nathan Byars Jr.son of Nathan Byars and Drucilla Harrelson, was the man by that name that married Emily Turner. I was WRONG. When my dear friend and fellow researcher Marjorie Stewart Tucker wrote her last paper, she reported that the Nathan Byars that married Emily Turner as Nathan Byars Jr. who went to Butts County Georgia. I do not know who his father was but I know he was NOT the son of Old Nathan and Drucilla.

The real Nathan Byars Jr. is shown on the 1850 Lawrence Co.Ala, with an Elizabeth (shown in the place we always give to the wife) and with two sons, Thomas and George W Byars. Years ago I found this census on microfilm and made a copy of it. My great great grandfather Harrell Byars md Nancy Tackett was also listed on that census. There was just one Nathan Byars on this census, and no one can tell what his age was. There is a smear over his age. Some say he was 55, some say he was 65, in fact he was 74.

In November 1850 Nathan Byars went before a Justice of the Peace and applied for bounty land for fighting in the Creek Indian War, 1812/1813. He gave his age as 74. In fact he applied for two parcels of land for fighting in that war, for again he went before Philip Tackett (his son Harrell's brother-in-law) and again said he was 74 years old. We have copies of his service. He joined in Sparta TN and was discharged there. We do have documents showing that this Nathan was Nathan Jr. In 1819, he owned land in Warren Co. TN but was living in Madison Co. Ala (Miss Territory) He gave a Power of Attorney to Harrell Byars who lived in Warren Co. TN to sell his land. A very good indication that Harrell Byars in Warren Co. TN was his brother, also a son of Nathan Byars Sr. and his first wife Drucilla Harrelson.
A time line following the Nathan Byars who married Emily Turner has been prepared by Martha Byars, (whose husband is a descendant of the Warren Co. TN Harrell Byars) showing when and where each of these men were on the census records and it is very easy to see that they were two different men.

So I say to all the Nathanites (coined for descendants of Nathan Byars Sr. in the Byars-Byers Family Enquirer) I WAS WRONG to assume that the man that married Emily Turner was Nathan Jr. I know there will be some that will never accept this. But we cannot change history. When we find evidence we must go where it leads us.

In Marjorie's paper she showed two prospects for sons of the Nathan Byars in Butts Co. GA in 1850, but said there was no proof. I say to those who descend from those two men to find a male descendant and get him to do DNA test. There are four different men that descend from Old Nathan (my name for him because he is the oldest Nathan Byars I have found) So far the three tests that are back show they are related as they show on the paper trails. One is a descendant of Robert Byars who left TN and is found on the 1850 Claibrone Pr. LA census as Robert Byas. The other is my second cousin. Our grandfathers were brothers. He shows back on the paper trail to Nathan Byars Jr. in Lawrence Co. AL. Soon DNA tests results will be back for a descendant of Harrell Byars of Warren Co. TN.

We have not been able to prove that the Elizabeth on the 1850 Lawrence Co AL census was a Womack. We have found a marriage record that indicates she may have been Elizabeth Blansengame. If the woman on the census is a Womack then she was either a second wife or her age on the census is Wrong.

DNA testing will put us on the right trail. So please go the Byars/Byers DNA site and sign up. It's painless, and will help put our extended families in the right place.

For years people have used a book written by Ura McWhorter Byars in the late 1970s. She was married to a Byars descendant. Her book was called "Exits & Entrants" The information in her book called the man listed on the 1850 Lawrence Co. Ala census as Nathan Byars is called L. Nathan Byars born 1795 and his wife as Elizabeth Womack. His wife was NOT Elizabeth Womack. Her maiden name was Blassingame. She was the daughter of Thomas Blassingame and Molly Roundtree. The will of Molly's father, Turner Roundtree was written in 1797 in Union Co. SC. In his will he LOANED his daughter several slaves and said at her death the slaves and their increase should be sold and the money divided between her children.
Thomas Blassingame died and Molly married Larkin Venable. They were in Lawrence Co. Ala. by 1820. A copy of Turner Roundtree's will is in the Lawrence Co. Ala Archives in Moulton, Ala. The copy was there because in 1846 a man in Miss. had sued Molly Roundtree Blassingame Venable and got a large amount of money. In 1849 Another daughter of Thomas and Molly sued her mother and her brother Robert because some of the slaves had been sold. In the Chancery Court Records the names of all of Thomas and Molly Blassingame's children, was given including the husbands name. "Nathan Byars and his wife Elizabeth, formerly Elizabeth Blassingame" was part of that law suite. So there it is. Proof that Nathan Byars born 1776 in NC was the same Nathan Byars that married Elizabeth Blassingame in 1810 in Warren Co. Kentucky. They were the parents of my direct Byars line, Harrell Byars who married Nancy Tackett. I received a copy of their marriage license years ago. But now on file in the loose papers at the Lawrence Co. Ala Archives is also a copy of the original marriage license for Harrell Byars and Nancy Tackett. Attached to that license is a paper giving permission for "my son Harrell Byars to marry Nancy Tackett" and it is signed Nathan Byars. You can't have better documentation than that. Now how to you get people to accept the truth when there is a modern grave marker in Bald Knob Cemetery, in Lawrence Co. Ala with false information on it. If you are a descendant of Nathan Byars and Drucilla Harrelson this should interest you. I believe that this man is Nathan Jr. but I have no proof. As a matter of fact before we start putting markers on unmarked graves we need to have proof positive that we have the right names and dates before it is carved in stone.
Please let us all leave no stone unturned to find proof. It has taken me 30 years to find these documents. My thanks goes to Linda Eddy, a great Byars researcher. If Linda tells you something about your Byars family you can bet she had the documentation to back her up. She has a great Byars data base and a desire that every thing is proved. We are so fortunate to have someone like her on our Forum.

For many years people have wondered if Delilah Byars who married Robert Martin, was the child of Old Nathan (b.1746) Byars and his first wife Drucilla Harrelson or his second wife Delphy Logan. That question can now be laid to rest. Martha Byars ordered the death certificate of Misonare Martin (her name spelled many different ways in the census records). She never married,
County of Cherokee, SC - Certificate of Death: file #21843
Misonare Martin. female, white, single
date of death: Dec. 2 1807, date of birth Nov 19 1840
77 yrs 3 mo.
Information given by brother: Robert Martin
Father Robert Martin b NC
Mother's maiden name: Delylia* Byars b SC
MB Scruggs signed the certificate.
Delylia/Delilah Byars Martin was b c. 1808, about the time Drucilla was getting s legal separation from Old Nathan. In reading the census records we were all surprised that she named a daughter Drucilla and Delphia. Delphy was living in her household. Martha pointed out that Drucilla was also a Logan family name.
So those who thought Delilah might be the daughter of Drucilla can change their family group sheets. Delilah was not the daughter of Drucilla Harrelson Byars, but the daughter of Delphy Logan Byars.
I would like to correspond with descendants of Robert Martin and Delilah Byars.*her name also spelled many different ways. cbh

In 1990, Velda Byars Spillalne of Lamesa, TX sent her work Work Sheets in for publication in the Byars-Byers Family Enquirer. Please be sure to use this information as clues.Velda was researching Robert Byas b. c1786 NC. It has been said, but no proof, that he may have been the son of Nathan Byars and Drucilla Harrelson. No one has ever produced a primary document that names any of the children attributed to Nathan & Drucilla. The name of Nathan's child by Delphy was Jackson and he is documented on Nathan's Rev. War Records. Valda showed Robert's children as:

I. Thadden (Thaddeus?) W. Byas b c1810
II. Martha Ann Byas
III, Abram Landres Byas, b 8 Mar 1815 TN d. 26 Sep 1882 Keller,Tarrant Co. TX. buried Mt. Gillead Cemetery, Tarrant Co.

IV. Asa Harold (Harel?) Byas b c1817 MS md Elizabeth Ann Logan d/o William Logan and Joanna Cason. Asa's two oldest were Joanna and Jane. He had a son Walker Byas

V. Rebecca Byas b AL.

VI. Pemelia Byas

Velda's grandfather told her the original spelling of the name was Byars. Her notes and Sources: 1830 Claiborne Pr. census lists Robert Byas. 1840 census the three boys are listed together; Thadeus W. Byas;A.H. Byas; A.L. Byas:1850 Bienville Pr LA Census: Robert Byas #110; Asa Byas #111; Abram Byas #125.

Copies of Bible Records of Abram L. Byas (Title page not included). The Logan family came from Edgefield Dist. SC in a colony of forty. This was known as the South Carolina Colony in the History of Bienville, Parish, LA.

The first wife of Abram Landres Byas as Permelia Logan is documented when William Logan's land was sold after his death. The Bible records and land records support much of the information on her work sheet. cbh

I don't know if this will help but I have a book published 1908. The title is History and Genealogy of The Ricks Family of America. The introduction states "The name first appears in England about the time of William the Conqueror, about 1066. research shows several of the name came to this country from England in its early settlement, Thomas and William came about 1645, and settled in Boston and Salem, MA. Issac Ricks came about the same time and settled in Isle of Wight Co., Virginia. Today in the west of England the name is spelled Ricks, while in the east it is spelled Rix." If you need more help let me know.

Descendants of Mathias Harmon


Generation No. 1

1. MATHIAS4 HARMON (CUTLIFF3, GEORGE ADAM2, JOHANNE MICHAEL1 HERMANN) was born 1772 in North Carolina. He married SALLY SHEETS Bet. 1790 - 1794 in North Carolina. She was born Bet. 1770 - 1774 in North Carolina (Ashe County?).

Notes for MATHIAS HARMON:
Mathias moved to Indiana, but as his son Cutliff was born in Kentucky, I venture to say he went to Indiana via Kentucky and may have resided there for a time.

Per the Washington Census of Land and Wills, Mathias was appointed Guardian of Lewis, Elizabeth, John and Esther Townsend.

There are several Mathias Harmon, and unsure if this is the same the Mathias Harmon, who he and his brother John established a Hunting Camp in far eastern Ky. near the present town of Paintsville and it was called Harmon's Station. It was used as a camp for the likes of Daniel Boone and others as a base from which they ventured forth on great hunting trips into the "Dark and Bloody Ground of Kaintuck". It lasted thruogh the last years of the 18th Century until Kentucky became a seperate area of it's own and was severed from Virginia's control. Around the same time the State of West Virginia was established and soon after wards Kentucky became a State in it's own right.Much History has been recorded of our Countries developement and it is amazing to me the amount of participation of a people named ,[in one form or another ] "Harmon/Harman who were involved in the major Civilizing of what we now call"The South Eastern United States of America". One very good reason we Harmon/Harmans have to celebrate the 4th of July,1776-2006. 230 Years of Freedom and we Harmon/Harmans have been involved every step of the way.

Richmond, KY
Other Names: None
Location: Madison County
Campaign: Confederate Heartland Offensive (1862)
Date(s): August 29-30, 1862
Principal Commanders: Maj. Gen. William Nelson [US]; Maj. Gen. E. Kirby Smith [CS]
Forces Engaged: 1st and 2nd Brigades, Army of Kentucky [US]; Army of Kentucky [CS]
Estimated Casualties: 5,650 total (US 4,900; CS 750)
Description: In Maj. Gen. Kirby Smith's 1862 Confederate offensive into Kentucky, Brig. Gen. Patrick R. Cleburne led the advance with Col. John S. Scott's cavalry out in front.

The Rebel cavalry, while moving north from Big Hill on the road to Richmond, Kentucky, on August 29, encountered Union troopers and began skirmishing.

After noon, Union artillery and infantry joined the fray, forcing the Confederate cavalry to retreat to Big Hill. At that time, Brig. Gen. Mahlon D. Manson, who commanded Union forces in the area, ordered a brigade to march to Rogersville, toward the Rebels. Fighting for the day stopped after pursuing Union forces briefly skirmished with Cleburne's men in late afternoon.

That night, Manson informed his superior, Maj. Gen. William Nelson, of his situation, and he ordered another brigade to be ready to march in support, when required. Kirby Smith ordered Cleburne to attack in the morning and promised to hurry reinforcements (Churchill's division).

Cleburne started early, marching north, passed through Kinston, dispersed Union skirmishers, and approached Manson's battle line near Zion Church. As the day progressed, additional troops joined both sides. Following an artillery duel, the battle began, and after a concerted Rebel attack on the Union right, the Yankees gave way.

Retreating into Rogersville, the Yankees made another futile stand at their old bivouac. By now, Smith and Nelson had arrived and taken command of their respective armies.

Nelson rallied some troops in the cemetery outside Richmond, but they were routed. Nelson and some men escaped but the Rebels captured approximately 4,000 Yankees. The way north was open.
Result(s): Confederate victory

In Camp at Davis' Mill, Miss., November 19th, 1862, Excerpt from letter of a soldier..
The country hereabouts is in a high state of culture. For miles around, immense plantations of cotton and tobacco loom up n every direction; in fact, so thickly are these products cultivated around here that it is difficult to obtain camping grounds, without locating on an immense field of cotton, and you can readily believe that ploughed ground does not make a very pleasant camp, especially in inclement weather. Most of the cotton around here is yet unpicked. Gen. Grant has, however, taken measures for the collection of all contrabands in his department, who are to be organized and placed under command of Chaplain J. Eaton, Jr., of the 27th Ohio, for the purpose of collecting and baling the same.

Hi Liz,

I've a brick wall in my line of Odells with David Odell b. 1811, so I'm not sure if I descend from William or not. (Most likely I do connect.)
The book has been in my family since the 1930s. It does not mention the ship that William came over in. It does state that he traveled with the Rev. Peter Bulkeley, who came over in 1634-35 probably in either the Elizabeth and Anne or the ship Susan and Ellen ( my guess is the latter.) I have his parents listed as John Odell and Susan Nichols. John was the son of Richard of Newport Odell b. about 1540 and married to Elizabeth Pierce. Richard was probably the grandson of John de Wahull who's line can be traced back to the Emperor Charlemagne. This is all interesting however I do not have documentation for John Odell although most concur Wiliam descends from Richard of Newport. I have gathered the information not in the book from other Odell researchers and the internet.

Hope this helps.

Hi Bruce,

I don't have a marriage date for Hiram Sr. and Mary Lewis (1804-1870) but based on their children I would assume it was in the early 1820s. I also don't know who Mary Lewis' parents were.

Hiram Sr. was the son of William Childress (1762-1839) and Charity "Seroone." Charity's surname comes from my g-g-g-grandmother, Elizabeth Robinson Gracy, during an interview back in the 1920s with Viola Simrell Greenwood. Supposedly Charity was Cherokee, but it seems like every Tennessee family has a legend of Native American ancestry.

William and Charity's children were (at least):
Susannah Childress (1786-1869)
Sally Childress
Elizabeth Childress
Hiram Childress Sr. (ca1800-1883-ish)

Susannah Childress married John Robinson; they were Elizabeth Robinson Gracy's parents.

As for sources, at this point I'm sourced out. LOL! For years Mrs. Greenwood's research was considered The Source as far as Robinson/Childress information, and I've verified much of her work with probate documents and Census records. However we've found some flaws in her research: for instance, the person who was supposedly John Robinson's father, an elder John, did not mention a son "John" in his well. So there's the possibility that she misunderstood or misinterpreted what Grandma Gracy told her about the elder generations (Grandma Gracy was, after all, close to 100 at the time).

So now I'm back to plugging away at old White County records, searching for clues.

Dean

David,
Yes, I have a Ida Jane listed as a child of Lowra Monroe Merriman. I will give you all I have - this info came from my great aunt who is still living in Bridgeport, AL

William Alan Merriman married Malita Curby and they had the following children:
Lowra Monroe; William; Rufus; Milton Owen; Walter Lewis; Carolyne; Jane and Adeline.

Lowra Monroe Merriman married Martha Ann McGarr and they had the following children:
John Floyd; William Luther (my gg-grandfather); Tom Polk; Charles Richard; Homer Sewell; Annette Loyd; Ida Jane; Lillie Mae; Ethel Lee; Mollie Edna; Mattie Lowra and Josie. ** the date 1873 showes up beside Ida Elliott's name. . . could this be her birth year?

The father of William Alan Merriman was a Demarcus Merriman born about 1760-1770 in Lancaster Co., VA. He died in 1850 in Bledsoe Co. TN. He married Elizabeth (ukn) who was born about 1772 in N. C. So far nothing on Demarcus' parents.

I do have a tidbit on Martha Ann McGarr. . . her father William Issac McGarr came to America from Ireland as a stowaway during the potato famine. He married a Susan Shumake and Martha Ann was born in Pikeville, TN April 1852 and died on Feb. 13, 1925.

I hope this helps you.
Debbie

Thanks Judy for the info about Demarcus Merriman.
Don't you just hate those brick walls!!!!!
Is there any info on the family of Malita Curby??? Or the Martha Ann McGarr that married Lowra Monroe Merriman. What I have on her father is that his name was either Issac Wm or Wm Issac McGarr and that he stow away on a boat from Ireland. . . of course they found him and made him work the rest of the way over. He married a Susan Shoemaker who was born somewhere in the USA.

...I do have a tidbit on Martha Ann McGarr. . . her father William Issac McGarr came to America from Ireland as a stowaway during the potato famine. He married a Susan Shumake and Martha Ann was born in Pikeville, TN April 1852 and died on Feb. 13, 1925.

I am sorry but I don't have your James G. in my data. That doesn't mean he isn't related; just that I don't have him.

The ten children I have for Martin Martin and Dicy Hicks are:

Robert Benson Martin
John Martin
Richard Hicks Martin
Mary P. Martin
William M. Martin
Jeremiah Martin (mine)
Jane martin
Lewis Martin
Willis Martin
Selena Anna Hicks Martin

The only one I have really researched myself is my line of Jeremiah.
Most of my other information comes from the Martin Martin book, census records, The Ezell Family in America (used to be online and I looked through it at the Spartanburg, SC library), and I found some records in the Newberry Country, SC-Estates book at Greenville, SC library.

Below is a reunion notice that list Martin Martin's children.

In the Gaffney Ledger, on 6 May 1941, a reunion was announced as follows: MARTIN FAMILY WILL HAVE REUNION MAY18; Solicitor Watt will speak at gathering to be held at New Pleasant; The annual Martin reunion will be held Sunday, May 18, at the New Pleasant Baptist church, near Cowpens Battleground. All descendants of Martin Martin and Dicy Hicks are asked to bring lunch, it has been announced. Solicitor Sam R. Watt of Spartanburg will speak. Martin Martin was born in 1755 and died in 1837. He served in the Revolutionary War with the 6th South Carolina Regiment under Lt. Col. William Henderson. He was in the battle of Stono, siege of Savannah, siege of Charleston, and at the fall of Charleston he was taken prisoner, held for several weeks and finally made his escape. His tour of enlistment being about over, he did not return to service.
To Martin Martin and Dicy Hicks Martin were born ten children. they were: Robert Martin, who served in the War of 1812, married Delilah Byars; John Martin, who served in the War of 1812, single; William Martin, also served in the War of 1812, married Nancy Bonner; Richard Martin, married a Hamilton; Jerry Martin, married Charlotta Bonner; Lewis Martin and Willis Martin, both settled in Arkansas; Polly Martin, married James Scruggs; Anna Martin, married a Wright; and Johnnie Martin married Turner.

Cantrell, whom was born in 1825 [ no full date ] in Warren County Tennessee, son Abraham Cantrell and Sarah Durham. David A. Cantrell married first to Margaret Blair, in about 1845 in Davidson County, Tennessee, and together they had two children: 1] Mary Eleanor Cantrell born : 1846 Tennessee 2] Sarah J. Cantrell Born 1848, Tennessee then she must of died, and David then married Amanda Jane Maerriman in 24 Nov 1856, Davidson County, Tennessee. She was born in 1833 in Tennessee.

Your question seemed to speak of John Thaxton (father, b.1730) and John Thaxton (son, 1760-1835) as a single person.

This is my girlfriend's genealogy. I was doing it for her first grandchild. Yes, she is related to Malachi Cummings whose daughter, Sarah Catherine, married Elijah Hill. The earliest I have on my husband's Cummins/Cummings/Cummons is Jefferson Cummins born in AR/MO Territory in 1812. He lived beside two Cummins men that ancestry goes back to SC. Haven't been able to link Jefferson with them.

William T. Hill, Jr. wife Elizabeth Halbert. His father was William T. Sr., wife Susan Smithers. Sr.'s father was Sion Hill, Jr. wife Elizabeth Brown. Jr.'s father was Sion Hill, Sr. and wife Elizabeth Smith. Sr.'s father was Robert Hill and wife Mary Webb. Robert and Mary are from Wales.

No documentation in the book. The title is "Our People" The tomstone inscriptions of Van Buren County, Tennessee with genealogical notes. The tombstones were copied 1973 to 1976. The book was published in 1983 by Margaret Rhinehart (Box 128 Spencer, TN 38585). Credit is given to Clifford and Ruth Sparkman Cook for helping copy the tombstone inscriptions and adding genealogical information.

Hope this helps,

Notes for WILLIAM HILL, JR.:

The book "Reminiscences & Memories of North Carolina and Eminent North Carolinans" by John H. Wheeler describes Rev.William Hill, Jr. as a Baptist Minister, a sterling patriot and a honest man. His break with his families Episcopalian background is said to have temporarily caused his father to disown him. It is said by some sources he was Chaplain and a member of the Committee of Safety, Salisbury District, NC during the Revolutionary War.

The December 1928 issue of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly Magazine states that Rev. William Hill, Jr., came to NC a few years before his father, and owned land on the Dan River, in today's Rockingham Co.,NC. His plantation was called "Popular Hill." The magazine article says Reverend William Hill lived there until his death.

William Hargis was born in Fairfax Co. Virginia , July 16, 1760.
Virginia's origional constitution adopted in 1776.
July 4th 1776 , Thomas Jefferson wrote Declaration of Independance.
While a resident of caswell Co., North Carolina , he was called to serve in the Army ; drew $26.60 for eight months service as a private and $30.00 for three months as an ensign , was in the battle of Guilford (Mar. 15,1781 ,consisted of 4,4004 men) >>( As the guerrillas tied down Cornwallis, still a third American army formed in the South under Maj. Gen. Nathanael Greene, who then launched the most effective military campaign of the war. Greene's basic plan was to keep his numerically superior antagonist, Cornwallis, off balance by a series of rapid movements and by cooperating with the South Carolina guerrilla leaders. Greene audaciously divided his small army, sending Brig. Gen. Daniel Morgan into western South Carolina, where he destroyed Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton's Tory Legion at Cowpens (Jan. 17, 1781). When Cornwallis pursued Morgan, Greene united his army, led Cornwallis on an exhausting chase into North Carolina, and finally fought him to a draw at Guilford Courthouse (Mar. 15, 1781).) Williams brother , Captain Shadrach Hargis was in the Revolutionary War. His discharge signed by "Efrm Washington, B Major at camp McLainess Bluff , Nov. 19 , 1781 , states ; " this may certify that William Hargis , ensign in Capt. William Moore's Co. has served three months and is hereby discharged." He lived in Caswell Co., N.C. when called into the service.
While living with his father in Caswell County , North Carolina , William Hargis volunteered , was commissioned an ensign and served four tours as such officer in the North Carolina Troops , as follows , from Nov. 1778 , to Apr. 10, 1779 , under Adjutant Samuel Johnson , Captain William White , Colonels,YOUNG, Yancy and James Sanders ; three months , his services ending June 09, 1780 (The War of the Revolution five years old ) , in Captain Adam Sanders Company -N.C. MILITIA , Colonel Hugh Tinning's Regiment , for some time in 1781 , in Captain Shadrach Hargis (soldier's oldest brother) Co., William left the service a few days after the battle , having served three months , from Aug. 19,1781 to Nov. 19, 1781 in Captain Moore's Company.

T. George Washington
P.O. Box 10129
Lynchburg , Va. 24506
" This declarents time having expired he was discharged by General John Butler on the 9 th. of June 1780. He then once more returned to his father's home in Caswell County ., N.C.. Where again he volunteered early in the year of 1781 under Captain Shadrack Hargis, his elder brother, for three months. William Moore was his colnel. He marched to and joined General Greene. He marched to Dan River and crossed the same at Boyd's Ferry where he remained a short time and then recrossed the river and went in pursuit of Lord Cornwallis, he met up with him at Hillsborough. Cornwallis fled before them. General Green still followed sometimes retreating untill Lord Cornwallis reached Guilford Courthouse, North Carolina, where the two armies met in March of 1781. This declarant was in the Battle of Guilford ( Courthouse ) . A few days after the battle this declarant having served out his three months was dismissed at Troublesome Iron Works on Haw River or near the stream. He again returned home to his fathers who still resided in Caswell Co., N.C. where he remained untill the 19 th. of Aug 1781. He again entered the service as a volunteer under Captain Moore. They met in Hillsborough and marched and overtook the troops under General Butler at Lindleys Mill. General Butler marched ontowards Wilmington N.C. . Wilmington then being in the posession of the British and tories under the command of Major Craig. They Marched back and forth through that country until the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Little York when Craig evacuated Wilmington. Having served out his three months William was discharged on the 19 th. of November, 1781 by Ephraim Washington's Brigade Major by order of General Butler. He then returned to his fathers again. Thus terminated his services to his country. His last discharge was at McClains Bluff. He was born in the State of Virginia on the 16 th. of July 1700 (actually 1760) . He lived in Caswell County, North Carolina when called into service each time. He continued there for something like twenty years. He then moved to Rutherford County, N.C.. He then moved to Knox County, Tennessee. From thence he came to White County, Tennessee where he resided twenty two years and still resides in White County, Tennessee. He has stated in his declaration as fully as he can recollect the officers who were with the troops where he served with the exception of Colnel Maybern. He would here state having omitted so to do heretofore ; that he was an ensign during each of his tours of duty. He received a commision signed by Governor Caswell ; his commision is lost ; he has made diligent search among his old files of papers but has been unable to find it. He recived a discharge at the end of his second and fourth tours. The discharge at the end of his second tour is dated 9 th. of June 1780 signed by General John Butler. The discharge at the expiration of his fourth and last tour bears the date of 19 th. of November 1781 signed by Ephraim Washington, Brigade Major by order of Militia General Butler. Both discharges I have with one.

Hi, Randa's mom,

There are only two children of Perygren Sr. that I'm sure about. One is a son, Samuel; the other is a daughter, whose Christian name I don't know, who married a Gaines and had a son named Thomas. In 1763, Perygren Sr., who was a blacksmith, leased some land in Fairfax County, Virginia for a term that included not only his lifetime but also the lifetimes of his son Samuel and his grandson, Thomas Gaines.

I think it's possible that Samuel was the Samuel Makanes who married Francisme Cravens in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia in 1742. There's also a later marriage in Maryland between Samuel Magness and Ann War, but this was in the 1770's and may have been a later Samuel.

In addition to Perygren Sr., Perygren Jr. and Samuel, two other Mackness names turn up very early in northern Virginia and the adjoining counties of southern Maryland: John, who married Elizabeth Morris in Baltimore County, Maryland in 1751, and a "George McKness" who appears among the names in the Fairfax County, Virginia estate records of Bridget Costello in 1769. I think John's family ended up in Harford County, Maryland, and I think there may also have been a Moses Magness who was part of this same generation, but whether any of these three men was actually a son of Perygren Sr. still remains to be proven.

Unfortunately, that's about all I know about the possible collateral lines of Perygren Jr.'s family. Most of my research has been on the direct line, since I'm a descendant of one of Perygren Jr.'s sons, who was also named Samuel.

Although Perygren Sr. is the only early Mackness I've found in that particular part of Virginia and Maryland, it's always possible that there were others. Perygren Sr. seems to have emigrated to the American colonies sometime in the 1720's (that's when he first begins to appear in the records, anyway), but there's no guarantee that he was the only family member to emigrate.

I hope this has helped. If I can answer any other questions, please let me know.

Harriet

David, I have in my line a Ransom Cain b.abt. 1797 whose wife was Elizabeth (?). His son was Willaim L. Cain b. 11 February 1825, d. 29 June in Hall County, GA. His father as I have it, was John F. Cain b.abt. 1761 whose wife was Martha Jefferson. John F. Cain's father was William B. Cain b.1740, m.abt.1791,Hannah Stanfield in Surry County, NC. The Stanfield line is well researched and extends back into the time of the Norman Conquest of England. I do not have a lot of source material on this line and found it on the Cain Roots List, Rootsweb, from a Cheryl Osborn. I had been forwarded her info by John Cain @ jcain@worldnet.att.net. John and I have been in recent contact, so I know his address is active. Do you have any info to share??

Hi! and thanks for straightening me out on pt. #3. I was running into conflicting info. about the 2 Anthonys. I'm still curious about the Thomas Pate in Tishomingo. I think he must be the missing link. If I could just connect him to a family. Will continue to read everything 'Pate' and let you know if I come up with any new theories...
Well, since I'm at it, how's this for a theory...
Thomason Pate as one of Booker Pate's "missing" daughters?
Evidence:
1) The name Thomason
2) Born 1802 TN
3) Thomason married Isaac Cantrell Adcock
4) John Bowles marries Millie Caroline Pate
5) Lucinda Bowles, sister of John Bowles, marries Isaac Adcock, uncle of Isaac Cantrell Adcock.
6)Both the Bowles' and Pate's married into the Cantrell and Adcock families
7) The following excerpt of a letter from PATE-L:
Copied as written by author:
Can someone on the list identify the three Pate's listed below that I
found in Warren Co., TN in the early 1800's?

John Pate listed in 1815 as having sold a slave named Peter to a
Anthony Pate for the sum of 500.00. Relationship of John and Anthony
not stated. Possibly Brothers or Father and son?
Also the same John Pate in 1818 sold/gave his son Jaramiah (their
spelling) a slave named Frank (for love that I have of Jaramiah, my
son). Witnesses: Leonard Adcock and Anthony Pate...
...I'm wondering if my Harriett Pate b. 1803 in Warren Co., could be John's
daughter?
Anybody know these people?
Thanks.
Linda
/end/

Okay, the above inserted information does raise a couple of questions for me and confirms others...
1) Leonard Adcock was the father of Isaac Cantrell Adcock and brother of Isaac Adcock who married Lucinda Bowles

2) Is the Anthony being referred to the father of Booker and John?...or another Anthony?

3) If he is the Anthony that married Millie, then why do other researchers estimate Anthony's death to be 1805-1815, when the above indicates he witnessed a document in 1818?...

4) I noticed on the Adcock list that someone has Thomason's father listed as Anthony, unless there's another Anthony that I'm missing, it doesn't seem possible. Though Thomason Pate Adcock did name a son Anthony P. Adcock, I figured it was after her grandfather.

So...whatch'all think? Any more clues out there?

Jinks, I'm in North Texas, I just might have to take a roadtrip over to LA to see you sometime!

re: Sarah Irwin:

Born in a portion of Anson County that became Mecklenburg County in 1762. Her heritage is guessed primarily from the will of Alexander Irwin who died in 1780. In his will he left money and or land to his sons - John, William, James, Samuel, and Robert. He also left an equal share of money to Thomas Gribble, James Beard, and William Blackstock. Although there is no mention of relationship, it is known that each of these men were married to women whose maiden name was Irwin. The guess is that they must have been his daughters. Why else would he leave them equal shares?[Thomas Gribble by Mike Tandy.FTW]

Some have supposed that her parents were William and Sarah Irwin. That conclusion has been arrived at by the fact that Thomas and Sarah Irwin Gribble had some land dealings with William. There has never been any proof found to my knowledge. My guess is that William was Sarah's brother that was mentioned in Alexander Irwin's will.

**********
I have Thomas Carmack and Hannah Shanks Gribble listed as being buried in the Webb Cemetery - BUT I haven't found their graves yet.

**********
My great great grandfather Thomas is buried in the Shiloh Cemetery (I suspect Irena is beside him but there is no marker.) Also my great grandparents David Burdine & Hannah Malury Gribble Smith are buried within spitting distance of Thomas.

David, I am trying this again. It popped off the first time. Guess I hit the wrong key. sometimes I swear that something is alive in the computer and grabs messages. ha. Only kidding.

I am the great great grandson of William McPeak born March 24, 1786 and died in Illinois October 9, 1845. He was the brother of James McPeak on whom I have no definite information. James and William lived for awhile as family in white County, Tennessee. James married a Jane Potts and they seem to have two boys, one whose name I can't recall. One of those boys was Isham McPeak as nearly as I can tell. I am trying to get information on this and still sorting through a lot of history and with my only sister in town, the sorting is going slow at the moment. Thanks for your response. I will try and get more information to you as soon as I can.

After reading the messages on this forum I formed these opinions about The Clonch line of Grayson/Carroll Co., VA.

1. This Clonch line was German or Dutch and never was in Ireland (based on passenger list of the Adventure - all Palatines, religious affiliation of the Clontz family - Lutheran, and family legends of the Mecklenburg NC branch)

2. Jeremiah Clonch found in Lunenburg Co., VA is the same man as Hieronymous Glantz who landed in Philadelphia and married Erna Barbara Mack (based on Macks living with him in Lunenburg and the Mack on the Adventure and the married to E.B. Mack)

3. If there is any evidence of a Sophia married to a Jeremiah Clonch in the Virginia records I have never seen it. A land transaction in 1758 with Thomas Moore in Lunenburg names Jeremiah Clonch with a wife Margaret. Can someone spell out exactly what the source of connecting Sophia Erwin to Jeremiah in Virginia is and what primary records they are based on?

4. Is the Jeremiah with wife Margaret the same man who married Erna Barbara Mack or is he a son of this man?

5. Is the Jeremiah with wife Margaret the same man who later appears in the part of the Montgomery Co., VA that becomes Grayson then Carroll Co., VA and is marked unfit in 1781-2 on the Flower Swift militia roster? I have not seen two Jeremiahs (Sr. and Jr.) in the records until 1778 - indicating a son Jeremiah was born by the mid 1750s - probably the one who married Jane McGuire.

Without further evidence there are two equally likely possibilities

1. Hieronymous Glantz = Jeremiah Clonch of Lunenburg up until about 1755. After 1755 Jeremiah Clonch (m. Margaret) in the records is his son (Jeremiah Sr. dies at about age 50). The Jeremiah Jr. found in Henry Co. in 1778 (m. Jane McGuire) is a grandson.

2. Hieronymous Glantz goes to Lunenburg Co., VA (later Pittsylvania when this county is formed in 1767) and has a son Jeremiah who later appears in Henry and Montgomery Co., VA (Presumably the one who married Jane McGuire).

There is no son Jeremiah on the Adventure in 1732. Thus if Jeremiah is born no earlier than 1733 he cannot be the man buying land in 1744 (comes of age 1753 earliest). Furthermore, this land is shown to be in the same man's hand until it is sold in 1758. At this point we have a Jeremiah married to Margaret (listed in the land transaction). There is no mention of any two Jeremiahs at the same time until 1778.

Here are the primary sources as presented by various authors on Worldconnect (particularly from Catherine Meder-Dempsey whose source was M. L. "Matt" Claunch/ Ralph L. Hayes)( http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=meder-dempsey&id=I303 ):

23 September 1732 - Adventure arrives in Philadelphia with Hieronymous Glantz, wife, daughter and son John Michael.

Also on the ship is George Michael Mack (listed as Hans Michael Mack on the ship list, but as George Micahel Mack on two oaths of allegience)

15 October 1733 - Hieronymous Glantz m. Erna Barbara Mack in a Lutheran ceremony in Pennsylvania
http://www.chm.davidson.edu/PAGenWeb/records/stoevermarriages.txt

1744 - Jeremiah Claunch receives 354 acres on South Fork of Allen's Creek in Lunenburg Co., VA (now presumably in Pittsylvania Co. - formed 1767).

1749, 1750, 1751, 1752 - Jeremiah Claunch on titheables list with George Mack in Lunenburg Co., VA

1755 - Granted Ordinary license in Lunenburg Co., VA

1756 - 200 acres on the S. Fork of Allens Creek adjoining his own lines

1757 - Renewal of Ordinary license

1758 Jeremiah and Margaret of Cumberton, Lunenburg Co., VA sell land to Thomas Moore on S. Fork of Allen's Creek (this is the land bought 1744 and 1758).

1759, 1760, 1764 - Jeremiah Clonch in Lunenburg Court collecting debts

1768 - On Pittsylvania Co., VA tax list (county formed from Lunenburg and Halifax in 1767)

While looking on the internet tonight, I was sorry to see that so much confusion exists about the marriage of John W. Knowles, b. 1749 and progenitor of the White County, TN Knowles family. Some show him marrying in Ireland and some show him marrying in PA.

One thing is clear from PRIMARY sources in PA, that "some" John Knowles married a Hannah Preston in PA and not in Ireland. IF you believe that the White Co. John Knowles married Hannah Preston, then it follows that you have to believe that he married in PA. It would be totally incorrect to say that John Knowles married Hannah Preston in Ireland. The marriage is of RECORD in PA.

I personally do not know if our John married in Ireland or in PA, but IF John Knowles of White County history did marry Hannah Preston, he married her in PA on March 21, 1770. I hope everyone can agree and correct any records you may have to show that the 1770 marriage occured in PA and NOT in Ireland. The marriage record can be obtained from PA.

The second point is this: Did the John Knowles born in 1749 marry Hannah Preston or did some other John Knowles marry her? Does anyone have proof on this? There were other John Knowles in PA at the time.

Additionally it is well-known locally in White Co., TN that John's wife was called Mollie. So...was this Mollie really named Mary (Mollie) Hannah Preston or was Mollie a totally different person from Hannah Preston?

Those who find this of interest need to clarify these points if possible by research of marriage and immigration records to see if anyone came with John from Ireland and to determine which John Knowles Hannah Preston married.

Will anyone volunteer to pursue either of these issues or suggest HOW to research these points? Are immigration records available from Ireland for the time period BEFORE 1770? Has anyone searched for a Hannah (Preston) Knowles in PA or other areas during the same time period that Mollie was living with John in White County, TN?

It seems to me that these issues need to be clarified by serious Knowles researchers. Please clarify the location of the 1770 marriage information to any of your Knowles correspondents as well to help clear up that info.

Dear Kelley, Thanks for the reply. I think that my Allen is the son of Demarcus. He was born in 1813 in North Carolina. He married Eliza Emaline Humble in Bledsoe County, Tn. in 1849, right before the 1850 Census. They had Elizabeth, his Mother living with them in the 1850 Census. I am going to contact the Bledsoe Co. Courthouse and see about getting a copy of Demarcus' will. I am also going to try to figure out where he and Elizabeth are buried in Bledsoe. She died before the 1860 Census, while Allen was still living in Bledsoe, so figure both of them have to be buried there somewhere. All I do know is that they are not buried in the "Humble" cemetery. I had someone go there and look for all the Humble and Merriman graves, and there were no Merriman's. I will add your info to my growing list of family. If I can help you out let me know, and PLEASE keep in touch. Thanks again. Jean

I think they farmed on Viola Road, as their son Isaac farmed on Viola Rd. as did his son Richard. Isaac and Richard are buried in Liberty Cemetery. I can not find a grave for Allen or Eliza.

According to my records, one of my oldest ancestors is Thomas Townsend who was married to Anephilda Watson, although I have the name spelled as Anphileda I think they are the same. The only child I had information on was Didama Townsend who was born on November 18, 1765 and died in 1844. She married Jesse Webb Sr. in Pittsylvania, VA and they had 11 children. Does any of this agree with your records? Do you have any information on the ancestors of Thomas or Anephilda? I have that Thomas was born in Scotland in 1723 and died in 1796.

Hannah Stanfield married William Cain. Her father John Stanfield's Will is dated 17 Aug 1815; proved 17 Apr 1816, Will Bk B:1718, Cumberland co,KY. Amongst his other children he mentions his daus Hannah Cain and Rebeckah Cain. He mentions that he bought the land on which he resides from William Cain and that he desires that Cain buy it back and pay out its fair market value in shares, after keeping his wife's share, to the legatees which he names including his dau Rebeckah Cain. The clear and strong inference to be drawn is that William Cain is the husband of Hannah Stanfield. In the Estate Administration documents, both William Cain and Benjamin Cain are heirs-at-law in behalf of their wives.

Both Benjamin Cain and William Cain appear as Heads of Households near John Stanfield in the Cumberland co,KY Census of 1810. The images are online at the Cumberland co,KY GenWeb site.

I have information about a Thomas Dodson, though I'm not positive he's yours. He served in Co A of the 4th Tennessee Cavalry (Union), a regiment which I'm researching.

This Thomas Dodson enlisted Nov 1, 1862 at Whitley Co., KY. At that time he was age 32, 5'9" tall, dark complexion, blue eyes, black hair, born McMinn Co., TN, a farmer.

I have located him in the 1850, 1860, 1880, and 1900 censuses, always living in McMinn Co. Here is a pedigree.

My Logan brick wall is currently William Logan (b 1780-1784, probably North Carolina). Two of his daughters, Permelia and Elizabeth, married two Byas brothers – Abram Landres Byas (b 1815) and Asa Harold Byas (b 1818) respectively. I believe their father was Robert Byas but I have conflicting data about their mother. I was recently steered to Nathan Byars (b 1749) as Robert’s probable father and now I find additional Byars/Byas to Logan connections. Nathan Byars’ second wife was apparently Delphy Logan and a John Byars (a son of this Nathan and a brother to Robert) married a Mary “Plassey” Logan. I would appreciate any help I can get in better identifying these three women -- mother of Abram and Asa, second wife of Nathan, and wife of John. Any additional details on these families and the relationships between the Byars/Byas and Logan families would likewise be appreciated. I would be glad to make available any research data I have.

I am searching for parents or any information relating to Elizabeth (Heatherly/Ponder?) Byars, born 4/29/1856 in North Carolina and died 3/13/1921 in Butler Township, Greenville County, SC.

She was married to Jackson Vandlou Byars about 1872 - 1875, and was the mother of 10 children.
Elizabeth and Jackson Vandlou Byars are buried at Liberty Hill Methodist Church, Spartanburg County, SC.

She had a step-father named Joel Cantrell. This family may have lived in Spartanburg County, SC. The Byars family was living in the Chick Springs area of Greenville County, SC in 1900.

Byars' family records and all the descendants that I have conversed with, state Elizabeth Byars' (1856 - 1921), the wife of Jackson Vandlou Byars, maiden name was Heatherly.

However, her death certificate lists her maiden name as Ponder.

Her son Taylor Byars' death certificate lists his mother's maiden name as Elizabeth Ponder.

Her sons Sherman and Walter Byars' death certificates state their mother's maiden name was Elizabeth Heatherly.

Sherman was born 11 years prior to Taylor's birth, and Walter was born 4 years after Taylor's birth, thus surrounding the Elizabeth Ponder statement with an Elizabeth Heatherly statement before and after.

The 1900 census record indicates both Jackson Vandlou and Elizabeth Byars had been married 28 years.
In each census she is listed as Elizabeth and being born in North Carolina.
This leads me to believe that Jackson Vandlou Byars was probably only married to one woman, and not married to two different wives named Elizabeth born in North Carolina of the approximate same age(as related to her husband's age).
But I may be mistaken.
In either case, it is certainly confusing.

I have not located an Elizabeth Ponder living near Andrew Jackson & Tabitha Price Byars (Jackson Vandlou Byars' parents) in Spartanburg, Greenville Counties SC, Henderson
or Polk Counties, NC.

There are two girls named Martha Heatherly in the census born about 1858 or 1859, and a Mary Heatherly born about 1854 or 1855, born in North Carolina, and one of these may be Elizabeth. Her name could certainly be Mary Elizabeth or Martha Elizabeth, and she could have only used the name Elizabeth after her marriage. Oddly enough, two of these little girls were named Martha and each of their fathers were named Solomon Heatherly. The little girl listed as Mary Heatherly is very near the age indicated on family records, the death certificate and the 1900 census. However the girls named Martha are also near the age listed for Elizabeth Byars in the 1910 and 1920 census.

Listed below are the Solomon Heatherly census listings for 1860.
1. 1860 census Green River, Henderson Co., NC
Solomon Heatherly 30 m $300 $200 NC
Elvira 32 f "
John 8 m "

2. 1860 census Davidson River, Henderson Co., NC
Isaah Pane 50 m farm labor

I found the family listed as 1. above, living in Northern Greenville county,SC, near Gowensville in the 1870 census. The father was missing, possibly a civil war casualty. Glassy Mountain and Gowansville are very near the Spartanburg Co. line, putting this family near the Byars family.

The following letter from Ben F Denton of Perry Co TN indicates that Benjamin Denton the son of Samuel Denton was a cousin to Samuel Denton the son of Abraham Denton III. So if this letter is correct then that would prove Samuel Denton and Abraham Denton III were brothers:

Mr. H. Denton Dear Sir Peters (?) Landing, Perry Co., Tenn Aug. 1, 1895

Yours of July 10 to hand contents in reply will say that I will endeavor to answer all questions and give you all the information that is in my power to do, in regard to the Denton families in my knowing.

As to myself and family, my grandfather's name was Ben Denton. He came from White Co. Tenn to Hickman Co. thence to Perry. He died somewhere about 50 years ago in Miss., I think Marshall Co. My father was born in White Co. Tenn. in 1801, his name was Sam Denton, and also my father's grandfather's name was Sam. My father left White Co. at 11 years old to Hickman Co. thence to Perry Co. in 1817 to Cedar Creek, was the first man to build a mill on Cedar Greek. He had 9 children, 4 boys, Abner, John, Ben, Isaac, daughters, Jane, Milley, Sallie, Mary. I have 3 sisters living. Milley married one David Bunch; he is now dead leaving widow, 2 children - Thomas and John Bunch. Sallie married John Bunch; he is dead, leaving widow and 7 children, 4 boys and 3 girls, Geo., Howard, Wm., Jim, Mary, Sarah, Martha. Mary married George Bunch; he still lives, has 7 children, 3 boys, Anderson, George, John, daughters, Sarah, Jane, Joshua, Alsey. Ben (the writer of this letter) born 1837 and now 59 years old, have 5 children living, one daughter Mary married W. B. Gulp. R.L. and John are my boys living.

There was another Sam Denton who lived and died on Cedar Creek, was a cousin to my grandfather and was older than my father. He married Eunice Conger, had 6 children, 2 boys and 4 girls, Tipton, Elijah, Betsey, Eunice, Sallie and Tempey.

I have heard my father speak of "Big Jerry and Little Jerry Denton". I had three uncles, father's brothers, Isaac, Jefferson, and Shipman, 2 aunts, Sallie and Rebecca. Aunt Sallie married John Bird, moved to Bell Co. Texas and was killed there by the Indians, was in command or bunch or soldiers in 1853. Rebecca married Ben Hensley, died in N.0. with yellow fever about 1830.

I do not remember any of the Moores except James Moore and Bettie Moore (Bettie was his wife's name). My father called her Aunt Bettie. She has grandchildren living on Cedar Creek, P.O. address is New E ___, Perry Co. Aunt Bettie Moore has a granddaughter living near Linden, Perry Co. married to a man by the name of Leghue Peavehausr.

There is also another Tom Denton living in this Co. His father was named Ben, P.O. at Linden, Tenn.

As to your Uncle Sam Denton, I have told you all I know in the above. I will here state who my father married, a Miss Argent Coleman; she was born in South Carolina. Hope to hear from you again and that I might get up other information that would likely be beneficial to you and that I might be able to learn something of the Denton family myself.

Hello,

I also am a direct decendant of Josiah Hill Rogers. Below is the information I have about our ancestor...

Best Regards,
John

Josiah Hill Rogers was born about 1745 in Bertie County, North Carolina (Bertie County was later changed to Northampton County). Josiah Hill Rogers was the second child of John & Martha (Hill) Rogers. He was one of three boys and five girls, they were Josiah, James, John, Sarah, Priscilla, Rebecca, Penelope and Mary.

In 1763 he moved from Northampton County to Johnson County (North Carolina) with his parents and siblings.

Josiah married Francis in about 1770.

Josiah became one of the leaders in a group of Freedom Fighters called the Regulators.

[1] During the Revolutionary War he rose to the rank of Captain in the Militia of Chatham County, North Carolina.
After the war he served in many Government positions. He served as a Constable, Tax Collector, Tax Assessor, Juror, Forman of a Grand Jury, Patroller, and Road Builder.

[2] He also had deeds to almost 2800 acres of land in North Carolina.

Source:
[1] page 51 of John Rogers Genealogy (From Jamestowne to Birmingham) 1635-1989 by Maurice Rogers
(2) page 58-61 from above book.

Tradition (NOT documented) has Josiah and seven sons as having fought under Shelby and Sevier at Kings Mountain.
According to Benjamin Duggan Rogers in a questionnaire he filled out, Josiah came from Virginia into what is now Hawkins County, Tennessee before the Revolutionary War, and he and seven sons formed a "Mess" under Sevier and Campbell in the King's Mountain Campaign.


Source: ROGERS, MAURICE. JOHN ROGERS GENEALOGY - FROM JAMESTOWNE TO BIRMINGHAM,
Birmingham, Alabama; Birmingham Publishing Co., 1990. - p. 52

"We do know that Josiah was in Chatham County, North Carolina during the Revolutionary War and he apparently served with honor as he received several land grants from the U. S. Government. The higher your rank, the more land you received and his grants encompassed hundreds of acres. He may very well have taken some grants in Sevier County and Wilson County, Tennessee in 1799 and 1804, respectively. In Wilson County, his sons, Stephen, John, and Henry along with Josiah, were on the tax lists. Henry and John were on the tax lists with Josiah in 1799 in Sevier County. Another son, our direct ancestor, Levi, was with the family in Wilson County in 1806 as shown by recorded jury duty at court. A son, George, was in Wilson County in 1803. This son seemed to be a mover and a shaker and for further details we refer you to a work by Eulalia Franklin, Tennessee State Archives, NSDAR, Volume I."

p. 54 - Petition of the Inhabitants of Orange County to William Tryon and the Council Regulators' Advertisement No. 9 - (Orange County) (May 21-May 30? 1768)
The above mentioned petition was signed by Josiah Rogers.


Land Grant #808 in 1784 to Josiah Rogers in Chatham County, North Carolina was the first of 8 Land Grants to Josiah in Chatham County, North Carolina and is designated in his will (1812) as "home site" on Dry Creek.

Josiah lived in both Wake and neighboring Chatham County, North Carolina. Several of his sons migrated to Tennessee around 1800. These sons were left out of his will. In his will he left a slave to his daughter, Polly. His son, Levi, left a slave to his sister, Polly, in his will.

Josiah's will was filed 1812 in Chatham County, North Carolina. Josiah died in 1813 in Chatham County, North Carolina.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF JOSIAH ROGERS

In the name of God amen. I Josiah Rogers of the county of Chatham and state of North Carolina, calling to mind that it is appointed for all men once to die and being old and infirm in Body but in my perfect mind and memory thanks be to God for his blessings, do make, ordain, constitute and appoint this my Last Will and Testament:

I give my son, Henry Rogers, a small parcel of land lying on the south side of Dry Creek bounded on the west and north by his own line and on the east and south by Benjamin Harris.

I leave my daughter, Polly Perry, a negro known but by the name of Jane to her and her heirs forever.

I leave to my beloved wife Frances by name my land whereon I now live together with all my plantation tools of every kind, my horses, cattle, hogs and sheep and all my negros, household and kitchen furniture of every description during her mortal life and at her death to
be divided after the following manner, to wit:

I leave my son James my land whereon I now live together with a small tract or parcel of land lying on both sides of Dry Creek bounded on the north by Joseph J. Alston's line formerly Henry Coots and Benjamin Harris on the south side and the balance of my property to be
equally divided among my children.

I leave my son James Rogers my whole and soul executor to this my Last Will and Testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this the fifth day of May in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and twelve.

Signed, sealed published and declared by Josiah Rogers as his Last Will and Testament in the presence of:

Harry Pace
Lucy Pace

/s/ JOSIAH ROGERS (SEAL)

Notes on Josiah's Will:
The will of Josiah Rogers 1813 is on two pages.
From Raleigh, North Carolina, State Department of Archives and History, Chatham County Records, Will Book A, 1798-1819, Part II, page 73, folios 2, 3 and 4.

The handwriting is small and flowing. I have made no changes in form or punctuation but have endeavored to give a true copy as presented in photostat. E.R.F. (Eulalia Rogers Franklin) Photostat dim and I cannot see much punctuation. Among the eight land grants to Josiah Rogers are found the "Dry Creek" grants. His son George Rogers is a chain bearer in some early grants and Henry and James named in will, are chain bearers in later grants. George, my great, great, grandfather is listed in 1790 census of N. C. Chatham County, as married with three children. He was in Tennessee at time of his fathers Will and death. E.R.F. (Eulalia Rogers Franklin)

Silas L. Suttle. Among the many old and prominent citizens of Washington County, who have lived long and honorable lives, and whose early existence was one of privation and trouble, not one is more worthy of mention than Silas L. Suttle, who was born in North Carolina in 1810, and who is the son of George P. and Susan Suttle. The parents
were both natives of North Carolina, and in this State they both died about 1816. The father was a tiller of the soil and a hard-working, industrious man. His son, Silas, was left an orphan at the youthful age of six years, and was taken and reared by his uncle. At a very early age he was obliged to start out for himself, and although meeting with many discouragements, had the energy and perseverance to
stick to whatever he undertook, and to-day is in very comfortable circumstances. In his twenty-first year he married, in her seventeenth year, Miss Rebeck a Elrod, of Tennessee, daughter of Peter and Nancy Elrod, and to this union were born twelve children, six now living:
Ewing Greenbery, John L., Adaline F. M., Mary, Caroline and Silas L., Jr. Mr. Suttle commenced life by farming in Tennessee, but left that State in 1840 and moved to Arkansas. and located in Madison County, where he remained fifteen years. He then went to Missouri, and remained in that State for eight months, or until the war broke out.
In 1861 he enlisted in Company C, Hunter's regiment, Confederate army, in which he served until the close of the war, and, lthough he was in three noted battles, he escaped without a scar. After the war he returned to Arkansas, settling in Madison County, but in 1868 moved to Washington County, where he is living at the present time, and where
he and F. M. have 163 acres of land, which is well improved and about eighty under cultivation. Mr. Suttle joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in 1841; was licensed to preach in 1843, and ordained as minister in that church in 1845. He has been a local preacher ever since. Mrs. Suttle is also a member of the same church.
Mr. Suttle is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and is also a member of the Farmers' Alliance.

I don't have their marriage record although I do Know they were married in 1779 in Nansemond County from family records shared from other descendents. I do know there is record of she and Thomas selling land in Washington County, VA in 1790. This was prior to their move to GA. I hope this helps. I know how hard it is to make sure the right pieces are put into the puzzle. Take care, Judy

You posted your message regarding Samuel Spencer some time ago but I thought I'd respond to your query with my information.

I have a Mary Spencer from Rutherford, NC who married James Walker and they lived and died in Ellijay, GA. Mary's father was Tisdale Spencer and Mary had a brother named Samuel. Some resources say Tisdale died in Texas still others have him in Georgia at the time of his death.

I hope you have found more information and I'd be interested in any thing you might have found on the Spencer line.

Barbara,

The information on Peter Watkins and Ann Nuthall comes from my uncle, Joel S. Watkins, Jr. This is the same Joel S. Watkins that e-mailed Hays Watkins concerning the Kentucky Watkins. Joel has done much research on his ancestry and all of my research has been built on top of his.

I am posting a partial listing of the gravesites in Fountain Grove, Coffee County, TN. There are many Cunningham names listed here that might be of help to some of you.
This is a partial listing of the Fountain Grove Cemetery, located at the Fountain Grove Methodist Church, Coffee County, Tennessee

This listing is not complete for the whole cemetery, it contains relatives on both my Bryan and Braley side of the family and their lateral lines where known. The spelling of the name Braley is from my great grandmother's handwritten genealogy, however there are many Brawly surnames in the cemetery. The same is true for the name Bucy, it is also written Bucie, and Buce. I have tried to maintain some semblance of continuity in the spellings throughout.

Does anyone have any info on this man? He is the son of Wm Wright b. 1760 and ? Collier. I believe he may have been born in Rockingham Co. but don't know if its Va or NC. He married Martha "Patsy" Cox ca 1808 and died ca 1815 from a wound received in the War of 1812, as I was told. James and Martha had three children, Elizabeth (Bettie); Barzillia; and James Jr. All were born in Va. to my knowledge. Martha was said to have been full blood Cherokee, and possibly used the surname Goodman. Both she and James were b ca 1785-90. I have all of my family back to the UK traced except for information on these two. They were married by a JP in what was Richmond City, but the court house burned and I have no idea how to tie these two together. Any help will be greatly appreciated. My line so far goes back through William Wright of the ship "The Fortune", in 1621. Will be happy to share any info that I have in return. Also would like to locate picture of his son James Jr and his wife Elenor "Nellie" Hutson. Have some other pictures, including portraits of James and Martha. Thank you in advance.

Hi - Just as a disclaimer, I don't have documented information, but have "borrowed" what I know from other Tubbs' researchers.
I think you have two women named Karrenhappuck confused.

According to the data I've got, the Karrenhappuck which matches the dates to which you refer was Karrenhappuck Tubb who married her first cousin, John Tubb. Karrenhappuck Tubb was one of 10 children born to George Tubb (born about 1727 and died about 1803 in Pendleton Dist, SC) and Mary (Turner?) who was born about 1730 and died about 1802 in Orange Co, NC.

Karrenhappuck's husband, John, was the son of William Tubb (born about 1729 and died 29 Dec 1804 in Greenville Co, SC) and Elizabeth Tabor (born in 1732 and died about 1824 in Hickman Co, TN, or she died around 1800 in Green Co, SC, depending on whose version you're reading). John was one of seven or eight children. Together, John and Karrenhappuck had six children.

I have less definite info on Karrenhappuck "Carry" Tabor, but my data shows she is the daughter of Lt. William Tabor (b. 4 Jan 1761, d. 4 Jun 1844) and Susannah Tubb (b. 11 Oct 1761, d. 31 Jan 1852 in Winston Co, MS) and they were married 5 Jul 1781, indicating she is not the same woman you're seeking. Carry was one of 11 children born to William and Susannah. Susannah was the daughter of George, who I mentioned in one of the paragraphs above.

I have a little bit of info on William Tabor's parents: my "borrowed" data shows that his father was John Tabor and his mother was Elizabeth Sharp. Apparently, they lived in Rutherford Co, NC.

Incidentally, George and William were born to a man named John Tubb. Info on his is very hard to find, but he was apparently born approximately 1700, probably in Wales. He is "the proginator" of all/most of the southern Tubbs clan.

I have the names of the siblings of Carry, but only one birthdate, as shown below:

John
Susanna
Wiliam
Mary
Elizabeth
Thomas L
Karrenhappuck
Nathan -- 3 Aug 1797
Nancy
Malinda
Elijah

I hope some of this info can help you find more information about your Karrenhappuck. If you are able to find documentation for any of the above info, I'd appreciate you e-mailing me direct with it!

Good luck!

I've been told, though it is unconfirmed, that George Cain b. abt. 1795 was a son of William B. Cain and Hanna Stanfield. I would love for someone to help me prove or disprove this.
George married Elizabeth Humphreys b. abt. 1805 (daugher of Samuel Humphreys and Elizabeth ??) from either NC or SC on December 25, 1819. George and Elizabeth moved to Howard County, MO. where their first two children, Celia and Samuel W. were born on November 11, 1820 and December 30, 1823, respectively. John Cain was born on July 18, 1825, and Milton Cain was born on December 18, 1827, both in either MO. or IL.

The family is listed in the Morgan County, IL census in 1830, where there 5th child William was born on November 21, 1830. There 6th and last child, Morgan, was born in Macon County, MO. on November 20, 1838.

John died sometime before March 24, 1848 when his will was entered into probate in Macon County, MO. Elizabeth died sometime after the 1850 census which showed her in Macon County, MO.

Two sons, John and George moved to Spanish Fort, Montague County, Texas during the early to mid-1880's. The two brothers, their wives, and many of their childern are buried in and around Spanish Fort.

I hope this is useful information. I also would like to know if anyone can verify whether or not George's parents are William B. Cain and Hanna Stanfield. If so, what about other siblings, and what about William's parents and grandparents.

Thanks,

Kent

I'm working on researching this Tilman line. My interest is Mary Tilman who married John Bush in Amherst County, VA in 1782. Mary's father Thomas Tilman gave permission for her to marry. Unfortunately, the document copy I have does not show whether Thomas signed with a "T" or an "X", so I do not know if her father was Thomas Tilman Sr. or Jr. so I am hoping to find another document to prove the relationship.

Here's what I've found that I think will be of interest to you:

Thomas Tilman Sr. married Lucy Hix, daughter of Daniel Hix. She is the "wife of Thomas Tilman" who died in 1763 (not Susan Moon). Support for this is found in an 1811 court record which names Lucy as the daughter of Daniel Hix and wife of Thomas Tilman. Record also names their children as Daniel Tilman, Thomas Tilman Jr., Winnifred wife of Richard Marr, Lucy wife of Jesse Mills and Elizabeth wife of William Walton (Elizabeth and William are both deceased by this date). Record gives Lucy's date of death as 1763 or 1768 and Thomas's date of death as 180_. I do not have the original of this record, only an abstract from Marilyn Poitras' ancestry world tree. Acquiring the full original document is on my extensive "to do" list.

Also on my "to do" list is attaining full original copy of Hugh Rice Morris' will. I would like to verify the information previously seen. (i.e. did he leave land to Thomas Tilman Jr.?)

Deed records in Fluvanna County, VA prove that Thomas Tilman Sr. had a second wife named Hannah. Deeds also prove he had a son Jacob (presumably by Hannah as we know Jacob was not a son of Lucy). To secure debts due to Jacob Tilman, Thomas Tilman Sr. deeded personal property to Zachariah Tilman. Rice Tilman (probably Hugh Rice Tilman) frequently witnesses deeds for Thomas Tilman Sr. as does Jacob Tilman, John Morris and Jacob Morris. Thomas Tilman Sr. deeded land to Samuel Coles Tilman but deed does not specify relationship. Thomas Tilman Sr. also deeded land to his wife Hannah, the original deed was delivered to Samuel C. Tilman nearly 50 years later.

I have several more Fluvanna County microfilms to go through and I hope that I can add to the above.

Here's what I'm wondering:
Can the list of children frequently seen for Thomas Tilman Jr. be documented?
Can any marriage for Thomas Tilman Jr. be documented?

Any feedback will be appreciated.
