40102 The Rev. C. M. Zwingle, senior minister of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, died Wednesday afternoon at a convalescent center in Nashville. He was 90 on Oct. 6.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Brentwood Cumberland Presbyterian Church with the Rev. Blake Warren, pastor, officiating.

Burial will be at Bybee Chapel cemetery in Warren County at 3 p.m.

The body will lie in state from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at Martin's and Bracey-Welsh, 209 Louise Ave., and at the church from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday.

A native of Warren County, the Rev. Mr. Zwingle was the son of the late Rev. J. H. Zwingle and Mrs. Zwingle. The family of ministers traces back to Ulrich Zwingle, a Swiss co-worker of Martin Luther whose name usually appears as "Zwingli."

Moving to Mississippi as a boy, he became a ministerial candidate in 1901 at New Hope Presbytery. After completing school at Castle Heights and Cumberland University in Lebanon, fulltime pastorates followed in Mississippi and Indiana.

The Rev. Mr. Zwingle came to Arrington Street church (now merged into Parkwood Cumberland Presbyterian) in 1922, and has lived at 1011 Maxwell Ave. in East Nashville since 1922.

He continued an active ministry until a year ago when he became ill. His last sermon was preached at Blue's Hill church near McMinnville. Members of the church enjoyed his preaching so much that for years they had provided transportation for him each Sunday. Most of his 72 years of preaching have been in the Nashville area.

Surviving are a brother, Paul Zwingle, Nashville; a sister, Mrs. Milton Green, Orange City, Fla.; two sons, J. L. Zwingle, Washington, D.C., and Earl Zwingle, San Francisco; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

40103 The Reverend James Clack was born in 1655 in Marden Parish, Wiltshire, England. He died on Dec 20 1723 in Ware Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia. The Reverend James Clack matriculated at Magdelen College, Oxford, on Dec 12 1671, and graduated four years later. He was ordained a priest in the Church of England on Sep 29 1675, in Salisbury, England, where he signed the Diocesan Subscription Book declaring his assent to the Thirty-Nine Articles. The book is still extant and his signature can be seen in it.

He was appointed to the Parish of Holt and Atworth in Wiltshire, but emigrated to Virginia in Aug 1678 probably with his brother the Reverend Nicholas Clack. He arrived in Virginia on New Year's Day, 1679, and on Easter Sunday of that year became the rector of Ware Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia. He remained the rector of that parish for the rest of his life and is buried in the churchyard. The church itself was constructed during his rectorship and is still an active parish church, a handsome, plain building.

He served on the commission that founded William and Mary College in Williamsburg, Virginia.

His tombstone reads, "Here lyeth the body of James Clack, son of William and Mary Clack, Who was born in the Parish of Marden _____ miles from the devizes in the County of Wilts. he came out of England in August, 1678, arrived in Virginia upon New Years Day following, came into the parish of Ware on Easter.

40107 The ruins of an important Norman and medieval castle, from which the village derives its name, are located in the deer park, just over half a mile south on Bredon Hill. The castle is supposed to have been built for Robert Despenser in the years following the Norman Conquest. After his death (post 1098) it descended to his heirs, the powerful Beauchamp family. It remained their chief seat until William de Beauchamp inherited the earldom and castle of Warwick from his maternal uncle, William Maudit, 8th Earl of Warwick, in 1268. Thereafter, Elmley Castle remained a secondary property of the Earls of Warwick until it was surrendered to the Crown in 1487. In 1528 the castle seems to have been still habitable, for Walter Walshe was then appointed constable and keeper, and ten years later Urian Brereton succeeded to the office. In 1544, however, prior to the grant to Christopher Savage (d.1545), who had been an Esquire of the Body of King Henry VIII, a survey was made of the manor and castle of Elmley, and it was found that the castle, strongly situated upon a hill surrounded by a ditch and wall, was completely uncovered and in decay.

40112 The same year, George married his first cousin, Sophia Dorothea of Celle, thereby securing additional incomes that would have been outside Salic laws. The marriage of state was arranged primarily as it ensured a healthy annual income and assisted the eventual unification of Hanover and Celle. His mother was at first against the marriage because she looked down on Sophia Dorothea's mother (who was not of royal birth), and because she was concerned by Sophia Dorothea's legitimated status. She was eventually won over by the advantages inherent in the marriage.[9] Family F17340
 
40113 THE SAVILE FAMILY.

[Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, vol. 25, pp. 1-47 (1920)

BY THE LATE J. W. CLAY, F.S.A.

[PAGES 1-7]

The early history of the Saviles1 is clouded in mystery. In the Elizabethan times when every family wished to trace their origin as far back as possible the genealogists tried to claim a descent from the Savelli, an Italian family. This idea cannot be entertained. Mr. Joseph Hunter, F.S.A., says, "The family, like others of those which are now accounted the best and most ancient families in Eng­land, began early with small possessions, probably in the parish of Silkstone."

There are no complete printed pedigrees of this great family, which has occupied a large place in the West Riding history, except the one in Foster's Yorkshire Families. That is in the pedigree form which allows so little space for many details. Mr. Hunter, who seems to have taken great interest in the family, has, in South Yorkshire, given several of the branches: that of the main line of Elland, Tankersley, Thornhill, in vol. i, 300; that of Newhall in vol. i, 67; that of Thribergh in vol. i, 46; and that of Mexborough in vol. ii, 393. There are also sketch pedigrees in Watson's Halifax, and in the Heralds' Visitations.2

Since these have been printed much additional information has been obtained. We have the Wills at York and London, which are more accessible by the indexes in the Yorkshire Record Series, the Inquisitions at the Record Office, the parish registers at Elland, Halifax, Batley, Horbury, Dewsbury, Wakefield, etc., which can be better examined, so it seems possible to throw more

1 There, are various ways of spelling the name Savile, Savill, Seyvill, Seyville.
2 There is also information in Mr. Hunter’s charming Antiquarian Notices of Lupset and Hallamshire, Sheard’s Batley, Cooper’s Savile Correspondence, Foxcroft’s Life of the Marquis of Halifax, Dictionary of National Biography.

1
light on this family, and the works of Hunter are costly and scarce, and there are few dates in Watson and in the Visitations, so that perhaps the following paper may be useful to the readers of The Journal.

The earliest printed notices we have of the Saviles appear to be as follows:-

1225 (9 Henry III). John de Dewsbury and Odo de Richmond granted to Henry de Seyvill, our parishioner, a chantry in the chapel of Guthlaker (Chadwick's Notes on Dewsbury Church, 26).

1251-2 (36 Henry III), Assize Rolls. Sir John de Seyvill sum­moned concerning a messuage in Pontefract (Record Series, xliv, 60).

1274-1307. Wakefield Court Rolls. Baldwin de Seyville and his three sons, William, John, Hugh, are mentioned without place of abode.

1286 (Edw. I), 20 July. Lunacy Inquisition of Peter de Seyvell at the Record Office.

Inq. Petri de Seyvell taken before Thos. de Normenvill at York pursuant to a writ dated 20 July, 14 Edw. I (1286). Peter de Seyvill is clearly mad and an idiot, incapable of managing his land. He holds the manor of Goullackarres, viz. three fourth parts of the inheritance of Ric. le Botiler of Sandale, and the fourth part of Sir John de Heton for a service of 3d. yearly. The manor is worth ¹8 yearly. Thereof Peter gave to Agnes de Seyvell, his sister, one mill worth 30s. yearly 4 years ago when he was insane. Peter holds in Skelebrok 3½ oxgangs of land from Sir Ran. de Blamustre for the service of 10s. yearly; it is worth 46s. 8d. yearly; he demised this land to Robert son of Stephen de Kirkeby for 20 years at a rent of 26s. 8d., of which term 8 years are elapsed. The same Peter holds in Smetheton one messuage and 4 oxgangs of land of the Earl of Lincoln by suit of court at Pontefract every three weeks, worth ¹4 yearly, none of it is alienated except that Peter while sane demised the land to William Seyvill, his uncle, for 14 years, whereof 7 are elapsed; in Thurleston 42s. of rent of assize from the heir of Hoderode, whereof nothing is alienated; in Holdeham 60 shillingsworth of land from the heir of Roger de Wamwell which he demised while sane to John de Wamwell for 20 years, whereof 6 are elapsed, for a sum of money beforehand and 4 marks yearly. The execution of the writ was delayed owing to John de Dychton to whom the escheator had committed the custody of the said Peter and his land being unequal to the management and also weak (who has to wife Pleasance Peter's sister).

2
1338 (Edw. III). Yorkshire Fines. Adam son of John de Sayvill mentioned.

1353-4 (Edw. III), 1372 (Edw. III). John Sayville of Eland and Isabel his wife, John son, and Henry his brother regarding the manors of Eland and Tankersley.

1377, 1 Mar. (51 Edw. III). Will. Henry Sayuill. To be buried in the chapel of the blessed Marie of Hoderfeld. To John my son xli. To Johan my daughter x marks. To Alice my daughter x marks. If any residue among my children. I make Thomas and John my sons executors (Reg. Alex. Nevell, i, 23).

There have been many attempts at bringing the early accounts of the family into proper order by the heralds and other authorities, some of which are as follows, but they are all incorrect and not worth reprinting:-

Flower's Visitation, taken 1563 and 1564 (Harleian Soc., xvi). Glover's Visitation, taken 1584 and 1585, edited by Joseph Foster. Whitaker's Loidis and Elmete, no authority given. Foster's York­shire Families, no authority given. Watson's History of Halifax, which is often quoted and is very amusing.

He says "it is a family of great antiquity supposed to be de­scended from the Sabelli or Savelli of Rome. Some were consuls at Rome before our Saviour's time, and it is said to have existed for 3,000 years. The first I meet with is Sir John Savile of Savile Hall, Dodworth, who married a daughter of Syr Symon de Rockley, by her he had Sir Walter and John. Sir Walter married a daughter of Adam Everingham of Stainborough, by whom a daughter Elizabeth mar­ried to Sir John Everingham. John, brother of Sir Walter, married about 1240 Agnes daughter and heir of Sir Roger Aldwark, and by her had Henry, who married Agnes daughter and heiress of John Golcar of Golcar, by whom Thomas, who married .... daughter and heiress of Sir Richard Tankersley of Tankersley, by whom Sir John, Henry, and Alice wife of .... Lockwood. Sir John of Tankersley married Agnes daughter and heiress of .... Rochdale, by whom he had John of Tankersley (Peter by Foster), Elizabeth wife of Thomas Kay, and Margery wife of John Thornton. John Savile of Tankersley married Isabel daughter of Sir Robert Latham, by whom Sir John and Jane wife of .... Ashton of Lancashire. Sir John married Jane daughter of Mathew de Bosco (or Wood), by whom John and Margaret, Prioress of Kirklees 32 Edw. III (1358-9). Sir John married Margery daughter of Henry Rushworth of Rushworth, by whom Sir John Savile, who married Isabel de Eland."

3
Watson, of course, is quite wrong, as Tankersley did not come to the Saviles till the Eland marriage.

The best account appears to be in the "Autobiography of Sir John Savile," Baron of the exchequer, copied in the Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, xv, 421, where he states that his ancestor, Henry Savile of Copley, was a younger son of Henry Savile of Thornhill, brother of John Savile, Kt., and cousin and heir of Isabell the sister and heiress of John Savile, who was the son and heir of the aforesaid John Savile, who was the son of Sir John Savile, Kt., who was son of John Savile and Margaret his wife, daughter of Henry Rishworth.

Notwithstanding all these various accounts, we can only say that the Saviles originally started with lands in Shelley and Golcar, near Huddersfield, which they might have obtained through an heiress, as they quartered the Golcar arms, but that, of course, may have been an after-consideration. Their real rise was by for­tunate marriages with heiresses. The first one with the Eland heiress brought in the Elland and Tankersley manors, and soon after the great Thornhill property came in. All these estates still remain to the present owner.

It seems impossible to start the pedigree properly before the Rishworth marriage, till there is more information, which can only probably be obtained if there are some early deeds at Rufford,1 which have never been properly examined. We therefore propose in this paper to begin with Sir John de Savile who married Margery de Rishworth as follows.

THE PEDIGREE OF SAVILE OF THORNHILL.

I. SIR JOHN DE SAVILE, Knt., of Golcar and of Rishworth, by his marriage; mar. Margery, daughter and coheir of Henry de Rishworth, of Rishworth2; probably dead in 1337. They had issue -

40114 The Schell/Shell yDNA Project may help us find the parents and place of origin of Johannes Casper Schell. If you know of any male Schell/Shell direct descendants that would like to participate, please let them know. The project is through FamilytreeDNA.com.

See discussion below regarding possible parents of Johannes Casper Schell. There are several possibilities/theories.

ABSTRACT OF WILL: son, Charles Frederick Schell, other children mentioned, but not named. Also mentions Morey (Mary?) Conrad. Witnesses Abraham Cook, Jacob Miller, N.B. John Dietz. Casper Schell made his mark to sign it. Executors are Henry Schell and Christian Hawn.

List of Casper and Catherine's children was derived from this will, baptism and confirmation church records, and county records.
BURIAL: According to a transcription of a document dated 1800, Casper Schell was one of the early members of the Zion Lutheran Church in North Carolina. Descendants believe that Casper and Catherine Schell were buried at Zion Lutheran Church, although there are no marked headstones. There are many early graves marked only by fieldstones.

PARENTS AND BIRTH PLACE OF JOHANNES CASPAR SCHELL - SEVERAL POSSIBILITIES -

1) Hendrik Schell of Amsterdam, Netherlands - Dr. Harvey Shell of Missouri, a descendant of Johannes Caspar Schell, said his family tradition stated that Johannes Caspar Schell was Holland Dutch. Dr. Shell hired a professional genealogist in the Netherlands, Erika Niederhander, and she found the following baptismal record that is a possible match for Johannes Casper Schell. The baptism of Jan (short for Johannes) Schell, son of Hendrik Schell was recorded 26 JAN 1725 at the Old Kirk in Amsterdam. The church and the baptismal font still exist. See the attached image of the baptismal record. It is interesting to note that the name Hendrik (Henry) was passed down to descendants of Johannes Caspar Schell. Dr. Harvey Shell of Missouri had a website for several years and shared his research and family information. He distributed DVDs with family history information to interested parties. (GF obtained one in 2009)

2) Other Schell families in Germany - Johannes Caspar Schell may have come from the Palatinate area of Germany. Many people left this area, because of war, severe winter, and religious persecution. William Penn offered an invitation to these Germans asking them to come to Pennsylvania. At least six individuals names Johannes Caspar Schell (or something similar) were christened in Germany between 1710 and 1730, according to a search of the data base GERMAN BIRTHS AND BAPTISMS 1558-1898 that is available on familysearch.org. All of these individuals should be researched.

3) Petro Schild of Ettringen, Germany - Several years ago a couple of individuals posted claims on several genealogy forums saying they had found the parents of Johannes Caspar Schell - the Petro Schild family of Ettringen, Rheinland Prussia, Deutschland (Germany). They did not offer any research notes or explanation of why or how they came to this conclusion. This researcher has made several unsuccessful attempts to obtain more information from them. Several questions seem obvious - Why the name change from Schild to Schell, and why wasn’t the name Peter (Petro) repeated in later generations of the family? This Petro Schild theory has been widely circulated, but it remains an unproven theory, in the opinion of this researcher.

ADDITIONAL RESEARCH AND DNA ANALYSIS - Additional research is needed to determine the birthplace and parents of Johannes Caspar Schell. DNA analysis might be valuable in this search. It may be impossible to prove the identity of his parents or his place of birth without DNA analysis of descendants. The Shell/Schell yDNA Project has been established. Direct Schell descendants (male) are encouraged to take a yDNA test and add to this project (FamilyTreeDNA).

40118 The siege of Harfleur, Normandy, France, was a military action which occurred during the Hundred Years' War. It began on 18 August 1415 and ended on 22 September, when the French port of Harfleur surrendered to the English. Clifford, Sir John Knight, 7th Baron Clifford (I41377)
 
40119 The Siege of Meaux was fought in 1422 between the English and the French during the Hundred Years' War. The English were led by King Henry V. Henry became ill while fighting this long battle, which took place during the winter months. He died on 31 August as a result. Beauchamp, Sir Richard Knight, 1st Earl of Worcester (I43839)
 
40120 The Siege of Meaux was fought in 1422 between the English, under Henry V, and the French during the Hundred Years' War. The town's defence was led by the Bastard of Vaurus, by all accounts cruel and evil, but a brave commander all the same. The siege commenced on October 6, 1421, and mining and bombardment soon brought down the walls. Casualties began to mount in the English army, including John Clifford, 7th Baron de Clifford who had been at the siege of Harfleur, the Battle of Agincourt, and received the surrender of Cherbourg.

The English also began to fall sick rather early into the siege, and it is estimated that one sixteenth of the besiegers died from dysentery and smallpox. On 9 March 1422, the town surrendered, although the garrison held out. Under continued bombardment, the garrison gave in as well on 10 March, following a siege of 8 months. The Bastard of Vaurus was decapitated, as was a trumpeter named Orace, who had once mocked King Henry. Sir John Fortescue was then installed as English Captain of Meaux Castle.

40126 The Southern Standard, Thursday, October 19, 1933:

"Trapped in an upper story of a 17-room house, Miss Harriet Byars, 51, and Oscar Ward, 11, were burned to death at Seven Springs late Sunday night.

Miss Byars, cousin of Mrs. Lilly Scott, owner of the dwelling, had made her home with the latter for the past 15 years, while young Ward had made his home there since the death of his mother who was killed by lightning three years ago.

Just what started the conflagration is a mystery. Mrs. Scott was awakened about 11 p.m. Sunday night by the crackling of the flames. Arousing Miss Byars and young Ward,Mrs. Scott attempted to lead them from the burning building.The two became confused,however,and lost their way and were soon overcome by the fumes.

The twisted and shapeless torsos of the two victims were found in the ruins after the flames had subsided. Funeral services for Miss Byars and young Ward were held Tuesday morning with burial being made in the Bildad cemetery, DeKalb county, under the direction of the John W. High Funeral Home.

The Scott home was located on the bluff, just a few hundred feet east of the Seven Springs Hotel. Mrs. Scott was formerly owner and operator of the Seven Springs Hotel.

The residence was completely furnished throughout. None of the contents were saved and vey little insurance was held on the house and its contents."

Springdale, AR
April 27, 1909

DODSON, Gibson – When the spirit of Uncle Gibson Dodson left its earthly home Sunday evening at 7:45 o'clock, Springdale lost one of the best men who was ever pleased to call this town his home.

Deceased had been ill for some six years with rheumatic trouble, a disease which was gradually wearing him away. Several days ago he was taken with an attack of the grip but was recovering from this and on Friday was able to be up and go to the table for his meals. A relapse of this disease came on, however, and this with this other ailment, his weak constitution could not resist.

Funeral services were held at the M.E. Church, South Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev. J.P. McDonald, pastor of the church, and the remains were interred in Bluff Cemetery.

Gibson Dodson was born in Warren County, Tennessee October 22, 1839. In Lawrence County, this state, in 1865 he was united in marriage to Mary Wasson who, together with their only children. Dr. C.G. Dodson and Mrs. Jennie Nickerson, survive him. He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Lucy McLeod, who resides in Benton County. In 1867

Mr. Dodson removed to Benton County where he resided until 1879 when the family came to Springdale which has since been their home.

Deceased was for four years a soldier in the Southern army, being a member of Co. G., 22nd Arkansas Infantry.

For eighteen years he had been a member of the M.E. Church, South and was a member of the K. of P.

Soon after coming to Springdale Mr. Dodson engaged in the mercantile business in which he contuned until a few years ago when failing health forced him to give up active work. No man stood higher in the estimation of the people who knew him than Uncle Gibson Dodson.
From an intimate acquaintance with him, dating back to the boyhood days of the writer, we learned to admire and respect him.

During all those years we never heard him utter a profane word or speak unkindly of any one, and he was honored and esteemed as true man in all that the term implies. As a mark of respect to the deceased the business houses of the town were closed during the funeral services yesterday afternoon. 
Dodson, Gibson (I6483)
 
40128 The surname of STAPLETON was a locational name 'of Stapleton' a village in the parish of Darrington, near Pontefract, County Yorkshire. Early records of the name mention William de Stapleton, 1273 County Oxford. Robertus de Stapulton was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Originally the coat of arms identified the wearer, either in battle or in tournaments. Completely covered in body and facial armour the knight could be spotted and known by the insignia painted on his shield, and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped garment which enveloped him. Between the 11th and 15th centuries it became customary for surnames to be assumed in Europe, but were not commonplace in England or Scotland before the Norman Conquest of 1066. They are to be found in the Domesday Book of 1086. Those of gentler blood assumed surnames at this time, but it was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) that second names became general practice for all people. The names introduced into Britain by the Normans during and in the wake of the Invasion of 1066, are nearly all territorial in origin. The followers of William the Conqueror were a pretty mixed lot, and while some of them brought the names of their castles and villages in Normandy with them, many were adventurers of different nationalities attached to William's standard by the hope of plunder, and possessing no family or territorial names of their own. Those of them who acquired lands in England were called by their manors, while others took the name of the offices they held or the military titles given to them, and sometimes, a younger son of a Norman landowner, on receiving a grant of land in his new home dropped his paternal name and adopted that of his newly acquired property. The name was taken to Ireland by settlers where they lived in counties Kilkenny and Tipperary. In Gaelic Mac an Ghaill (the son of the foreigner), which has in turn been re-Anglicized as Gall. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. The lion depicted in the arms is the noblest of all wild beasts which is made to be the emblem of strength and valour, and is on that account the most frequently borne in Coat-Armour.

40129 The Swindell/Swindle Family History

(Source ) Swindle is an English name. Swindle did not denote the Englishman engaged in fraudulent transactions, as one might suppose, but is merely a respelling of Swindell "dweller in valley where swine were bred," or a corruption of Swindale "pig valley", a village in Westmoreland.

40130 The toponym is from the Old English tana feld, meaning "open land where young shoots grow", or possibly "open land of a man called Tana".[3] The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Tanefeld. The manor was owned by Thorkil at the time of the Norman invasion, but were afterwards granted to Count Alan of Brittany.[4] The manor was held by Hugh, son of Gernegan thereafter and his heirs until at least 1243. One of these heirs, a woman named Avis had married Robert Marmion, 1st Baron Marmion of Winteringham and held the manor in 1287. The Marmion family held the manor until 1387 when it passed to the next line of descent to the wife of Sir Henry Fitz Hugh. The Fitz Hugh family held the manor until 1513 when the direct line ended and it passed to another branch family, the Parr's. The Parr's held the manor until the death of William Parr, Marquess of Northampton in 1571. William was also the brother of Catherine Parr, Queen consort to Henry VIII. The manor was passed back to the Crown at that time before being granted in 1572 to William Cecil, Lord Burghley. The manor was inherited by his son Thomas, Earl of Exeter and thence his son William. Having no surviving son, the manor of Tanfield passed to his second daughter whose second marriage was to Robert Bruce, 2nd Earl of Elgin and 1st Earl of Ailesbury and who held the manor in 1676 and was passed down the line of descent until 1738. It became the possession of Thomas Bruce Brudenell, who succeeded to the title as well. It remained with the family until 1886.

The village has a monument called the Marmion Tower, a 15th-century gatehouse which belonged to the now vanished manor house and former home of the Marmion family known as the "Hermitage".[7] At first floor level there is an example of an oriel window. The tower is now in the care of English Heritage and is a Grade I listed building.

The village had a railway station on the Masham branch line of the North Eastern Railway until the line was closed in 1963.

Not far from the village are the Thornborough Henges, known as the 'Stone Henge of the North'.

40133 The usually reliable "Plantagenet Ancestry" by Douglas Richardson (p. 551) gives Agnes as the daughter of Roger de Clifford, but this is unfounded speculation prompted by the arms displayed in the window of Wiston church, Sussex. The parentage of Agnes is, as yet, unknown.

40134 The village of Ringwould was first recorded more than 200 years before the Domesday survey, in an Anglo-Saxon Charter dated 861 AD under the name of Roedligwealda (the forest of Hredel’s people). The site of a Roman period farm has been identified close to the present Ripple windmill; which is in the parish, although metal detector finds and other relics which have been found, suggest that the area was populated well before the Roman invasion. The oldest coin ever found in England was discovered by a metal detectorist working close to Ringwould. It seems probable that the village was established sometime during the Anglo-Saxon period, probably in the 6th century AD, and certainly well before the Norman Conquest of 1066.

The village of Ringwould has about 350 residents and is about the size today that it was when our ancestors lived nearby or in the village itself.

40136 The Virgin Queen, Gloriana or Good Queen Bess, the childless Elizabeth was the fifth and last monarch of the Tudor dynasty.

Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry VIII by second wife, Anne Boleyn, who was executed two and a half years after Elizabeth's birth. Anne's marriage to Henry VIII was annulled, and Elizabeth was declared illegitimate.

Her half-brother, Edward VI, ruled until his death in 1553, bequeathing the crown to Lady Jane Grey and ignoring the claims of his two half-sisters, Elizabeth and the Roman Catholic Mary, in spite of statute law to the contrary.

Edward's will was set aside and Mary became queen, deposing Lady Jane Grey.

During Mary's reign, Elizabeth was imprisoned for nearly a year on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels.

40140 The WEBB family was originally from Dorset, one of the shires in England. For nearly two hundred years the WEBBs had resided in this place before Alexander Jr with his four sons came to America. The brothers had become quite wealthy. They sold their estate in England for a large sum of money prior to their departure. This English property was inherited through their ancestor, Sir Henry Alexander Webb. A copy of the letter which Catherine Parr sent her Council (Cabinet Ministers) asking them to grant her beloved friend, Sir Henry Alexander Webb, the lands and estates that had been mentioned for him is still in existence. These lands had been confiscated by the King at the suppression of the monasteries and were located in Dorsetshire, England. In later years they became of value to the children who came to America. Sir Henry Alexander Webb was usher in the Privy Council of Catherine Parr, Queen Regent of Britian in the 16th century. Catherine Parr, 6th Queen of Henry VIII of England, tactful, kindly woman to whose influence her stepchildren, the future sovereigns Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I owed much. Among the few existing documents connected with the regency of Catherine Parr was one while Henry VIII was conducting the siege of Boulogne in 1544 AD. There is in the Crotonain Collections a letter to her council headed: Katherine, Queen Regent, K.P. in favor of her trusty and well beloved servant, Henry Alexander Webb, gentleman, usher of her Privy Chamber.... The letter is in regard to some grants and privileges to Henry Alexander Webb, but which have not been fulfilled. It concludes ...we most heartily desire and pray you to be favorable to him at this our earnest request. Given under my Hand and Signet, at my Lord, the King's Majesty's Honor of Hampton Court, the 23d of July and the 36th of his Highness most noble Reign.... Webb, Sir Henry Alexander (I37425)

40142 The Wives of John Tate (1687-1769): Lucy Waddy and Mary Waddy

I believe that the following explains who the mother was of Waddy Tate, son of John; and demonstrates that Mary Waddy did not marry John Tate until around 1750, and the offspring of that marriage was limited to one, Zedekiah, and he died before his father's death.


Louisa Co., Va. Deed Book H. page 477 -


10 March 1785 - Articles of Agreement between (1) Zackeus TAIT, of the COUNTY OF ORANGE, STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, son of John TAIT, deceased, formerly of the County of Louisa, Virginia, of 1st part £ (2) Zenas TAIT of City of Richmond, Virginia, son of John, deceased, of 2nd part £ (3) Waddy TAIT, of COUNTY OF CASWELL, STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, son of said John TAIT, deceased, of 3rd part and (4) Zephaniah TAIT, of the COUNTY OF GILFORD (sic) STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, son of said John TAIT, deceased, of the 4th part £ (5) Charles SNELSON of the County of Halifax, State of Virginia, representative of Mary, his wife, daughter of John TAIT, deceased of 5th part - and (6) Joseph STREET, of County of Louisa, Virginia, representative of Sarah, his wife, daughter of John TAIT, deceased, of 6th part - and (7) Anthony WINSTON, of county and state aforesaid, representative of his late wife, UPHAM, daughter of John TAIT, deceased, of the 7th part - and John TAIT, of the COUNTY OF ORANGE, STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, son of (8) Zacharias TAIT, deceased, son of the said John TAIT, deceased, representative of his father as administrator of his estate and also of his father's orphan children, Sarah TAIT - Anderson TAIT and Richard TAIT, being their guardian, of the 8th part and (9) Zephaniah TAIT, aforesaid, as representative for John TAIT - Fanny TAIT - Sally TAIT - Hannah TAIT - Caswell TAIT - and Anthony TAIT, orphan children of John TAIT, deceased, being their guardian lawfully appointed, of the 9th part, etc., etc.

Refers to Will of John TAIT of Louisa Co., Virginia dated 25 November 1768 (which see) and his wife (and relict) Mary TAIT, his ten children, etc., aforesaid heirs appoint Zephaniah TAIT their legal attorney and agent, etc.


The signatures of the parties appear as Zacekis TAIT - Zenas TAIT - Waddy TAIT - Zephaniah TAIT - Charles SNELSON - Joseph STREET - Anthony WINSTON - John TAIT, administrator and guardian and Zephaniah TAIT, guardian. Proved and recorded Louisa Co., Virginia 14 March 1785.


10 March 1785 - Mary TAIT, of County of Louisa, widow of John TAIT, deceased, - for 90 pds. - Specie, relinquenches and quit-claims to the legatees of her said husband, her part of said estate and also her part of her son, Zedekiah TAITE, deceased, estate, etc.
Recorded 14 March 1785


The above documents of the 10 March 1785, really establish the children born to Mary Waddy Tate, wife of John Tate in the final settlement of the estate of John Tate as per his will dated 25 November 1768. The will mentions "HIS" 10 children; his wife and relict. Also on 10 March 1785, Mary Tait/Tate for the amount of 90 lbs, specie, relinquishes any claim to the estate of her husband and of her son Zedekiah. This was recorded 14 March 1785. The child by Mary Waddy Tate, Zedekiah was dead by 1784. This released the estate to the 10 children by Lucy Waddy, John TateÕs first wife; as she could have retained dower rights and held up the settlement.

Mary Waddy TateÕs will mentions none of the children by John TateÕs first marriage, nor of any of their descendants. She mentioned only her brother, John Waddy, as a beneficiary of her estate.

Cty. Louisa, Book: 2, Page: 180, Mary Waddy, Type: Will, Date: 13-Dec-1773
of Louisa, brother John Waddy have as much of my estate as I had from my grandfather Waddy as will make him equal with my other brothers and sisters as if my fathers estate were equally divided among them; sisters Frances, Elizabeth, and Ann Waddy. Written 27 Nov 1773, Rec: 13 Dec 1773; Adm: John Waddy; wit: Samuel Richardson, Molly Street(1)

There are some who feel that the first wife of John Tate was named Lucy, but that her family name was not Waddy. The problem with that is the given name of one of their sons, Waddy, could only have entered the Tate family with this marriage.

Butler, Sir Theobald 4th Chief Butler of Ireland (I46914)
 
40159 Theobald le Botiller, also known as Theobald Butler, 2nd Baron Butler (January 1200 – July 19, 1230) was the son of Theobald Walter, 1st Baron Butler and Maud le Vavasour. He had livery of his lands on 18 July 1222.

Marriage and Children

Theobald married in 1222 Joan du Marais (or Marisco) daughter of Geoffrey du Marais. Their children were:

Theobald Butler, 3rd Chief Butler of Ireland (1224-1248). His son married Margery de Burgh, daughter of Richard Mor de Burgh and Egidia de Lacy and one child
Note: there are several Theobald le Botillers in this line.

Matilda Butler (1225-1283) she marries John FitzAlan and they have two children together
After the death of his wife three years later in 1225, Theobald remained a widower. Henry III of England requested the marriage of Theobald to Rohese de Verdon, daughter of Nicholas de Verdon of Alton, Staffordshire and Joan de Lacy, and the widow of William Perceval de Somery. The agreement to marry occurred on 4 September 1225. The marriage is presumed to have followed shortly afterwards. Their children were

John de Verdon, (1226–1274) who inherited the western part of the Lordship of Meath in virtue of his marriage to Margery de Lacy, sister of Maud (or 'Mathilda') de Lacy, wife of Geoffrey de Geneville, 1st Baron Geneville.

Isabella de Verdon (1225-1328)
Nicholas de Verdon (1228-1271)

Career

Theobald was summoned cum equis et armis (Latin: "with horses and arms") to attend the King into Brittany, as "Theobaldus Pincerna" on 26 October 1229. He died on 19 July 1230 in Poitou, France, and was buried in the Abbey of Arklow, County Wicklow.

le Botiller, Sir Theobald 2nd Chief Butler of Ireland (I46910)
 
40160 Theobald Walter (sometimes Theobald FitzWalter,[2] Theobald Butler, or Theobald Walter le Boteler) was the first Chief Butler of Ireland. He also held the office of Chief Butler of England and was the High Sheriff of Lancashire for 1194.[3]

Theobald was the first to use the surname Butler of the Butler family of Ireland. He was involved in the Irish campaigns of King Henry II of England and John of England. His eldest brother Hubert Walter became the Archbishop of Canterbury and justiciar and Lord Chancellor of England.

Family

Theobald was the son of Hervey Walter and his wife Matilda de Valoignes, who was one of the daughters of Theobald de Valoignes.[4] Their children were Theobald, Hubert—future Chief Justiciar and Archbishop of Canterbury—Bartholomew, Roger, and Hamon. Theobald Walter and his brother Hubert were brought up by their uncle Ranulf de Glanvill, the great justiciar of Henry II of England who had married his mother's sister Bertha.[5]

Career

On 25 April 1185, Prince John, in his new capacity as "Lord of Ireland" landed at Waterford and around this time granted the hereditary office of butler of Ireland to Theobald, whereby he and his successors were to attend the Kings of England at their coronation, and on that day present them with the first cup of wine.[6] Theobald's father had been the hereditary holder of the office of butler of England.[7] Some time after, King Henry II of England granted him the prisage of wines, to enable him, and his heirs, the better to support the dignity of that office. By this grant, he had two tuns (barrels) of wine out of every ship, which broke bulk in any trading port of Ireland, and was loaded with 20 tons of that commodity, and one ton from 9 to 20.[5] Theobald accompanied John on his progress through Munster and Leinster. At this time he was also granted a large section of the north-eastern part of the Kingdom of Limerick.[6] The grant of five and a half cantreds was bounded by:

"...the borough of Killaloe and the half cantred of Trucheked Maleth in which it lay, and the cantreds of Elykarval, Elyochgardi, Euermond, Aros and Wedene, and Woedeneoccadelon and Wodeneoidernan."

These are the modern baronies of Tullough (in County Clare), Clonlisk and Ballybritt (in County Offaly), Eliogarty, Ormond Upper, Ormond Lower, Owney and Arra (in County Tipperary), Owneybeg, Clanwilliam and Coonagh (in County Limerick).[8]

Theobald was active in the war that took place when Ruaidrâi Ua Conchobair attempted to regain his throne after retiring to the monastery of Cong, as Theobald's men were involved in the death of Donal Mâor na Corra Mac Carthaigh during a parley in 1185 near Cork.[9] In 1194 Theobald supported his brother during Hubert's actions against Prince John, with Theobald receiving the surrender of John's supporters in Lancaster. Theobald was rewarded with the office of sheriff of Lancaster, which he held until Christmas of 1198. He was again sheriff after John took the throne in 1199.[10]

In early 1200, however, John deprived Theobald of all his offices and lands because of his irregularities as sheriff. His lands were not restored until January 1202.[11] A manuscript in the National Library of Ireland points to William de Braose, 4th Lord of Bramber as the agent of his restoration:

"Grant by William de Braosa, (senior) to Theobald Walter (le Botiller) the burgh of Kildelon (Killaloe) ... the cantred of Elykaruel (the baronies of Clonlisk and Ballybrit, Co. Offaly), Eliogarty, Ormond, Ara and Oioney, etc. 1201."[12]

"Elykaruel" refers to the Gaelic tuath of "Ely O'Carroll", which straddled the southern part of County Offaly and the northern part of Tipperary (at Ikerrin). The other cantreds named are probably the modern baronies of Eliogarty, Ormond Upper, Ormond Lower and Owney and Arra in County Tipperary.

Theobald founded the Abbey of Woney,[13] in the townland of Abington (Irish: Mainistir Uaithne, meaning "the monastery of Uaithne"), of which nothing now remains,[14] near the modern village of Murroe in County Limerick Ireland around 1200.[13] He also founded the Cockersand Abbey in Lancaster, Abbey of Nenagh in County Tipperary, and a monastic house at Arklow in County Wicklow.[4]

Marriage and Children

Theobald married Maud le Vavasour (1176-1226), heiress of Robert le Vavasour, a baron of Yorkshire,[4] John Lodge in the Peerage of Ireland in 1789 gave the year as 1189,[15] but on no apparent authority, as no other author follows him on this.[citation needed] He died April 4 1206, and was buried at Owney abbey. Their children were

Theobald le Botiller, 2nd Chief Butler of Ireland[4]
Maud (1192-1244) marries three times yet only has two surviving children Ralph and Marie

Hello the List--------

Following this brief apology from me, I am forwarding a message from Warren. I assume everyone knows how many years he has devoted to these CANTRELL's of ours--a lifetime. I asked his permission to pass this info on to the list. I didn't get it, but he didn't say no. Please don't be upset Warren. I feel we should all share from our combined research and Mistakes. I don't agree that we need to burn the entire book. There are some things worth saving. It's just that it is very important for EVERYONE to VERIFY,

VERIFY, VERIFY everything you find. If it is a primary resource,

DOCUMENT!!!!!! Books, no matter how new or old, are good places to START.

I knew this and should have made it clear to begin with. I aplogize, to Warren, and everyone out there. Sometimes, we tend to take things, (other's knowledge of how-to) for granted that we shouldn't. At least I found out there is "someone out there" and got something going.

The following info is directly from Warren Cantrell, Family Historian and researcher "extraordinaire" .

Dale,

I realize the weather is hot but why don't you start up a fire in the stove )and fuel the flames with the Christie book?!!

For forty years, I have owned one of the orginial 300 copies of this misguided publication.

I also have copies of the many additions that have been added to it without )research as to its authenticity. I can name half a dozen cousins who have )been led down this prim-rose path. Two of who lived in your area. Let us take a brief visit to the book.

Page 8. John #7 did not have the 23 sons and two daughters as listed. Many of those listed were children of his brother Isaac.

Page 9 Abraham #12 did not die in SC but in Warren co. TN in 1826.

#33 was not his son but a son of his brother John "M"

Richard #37 wa born ca 1764 and was 16 years older than his father as listed!! Richard #37 was a son of Isaac Sr. Abraham # 33 is the same person as Abraham #800.

John #44 is the same as John #809. "Peanuts" mother made an attempt to straighten out Isaac Denton #67 and Isaac Denton # 958.

#43 and #48 are the same. There was no Felix in this family

Isaac #13 did not have all of the children listed!

John #318 did not move to TN but moved to GA. where he reared his family and died in the 1850s. Sarah lived to be quite old. Christie was so anxious to join the DAR and she knew her ancestor was a Jacob Cantrell and in NC she found a voucher for pay to aJacob Cantrell. This Jacob was married and had a house full of children at the time of the Rev. War. He was a son of John. Now he had a cousin, Jacob son of Isaac who was unmarried and the right age. She made sure that thisacob was never mentioned in her book but she came in contact with one of sons, John.So she made an intentional error for #319 and called Jacob Isaac and encluded a sketch for him.

Aaron #320 was not a son of Isaac unless he was born when Isaac was under 16 years of age.

Aaron #20 and Aaron #320 are probably the same person. Thomas Webb is of that opinion and i concur.

Page 34, Mary wife of Jacob did not die in KY but in NC and son, Zebulon took over the administration of the estate. Christie did so little research on her own line that she did not know that Jacob had another daughter born after the will of 1782 was made.

David #477 was not a son of Zebulon #470 but a son of Zebulon, son of Christopher. Have 1926 affidavits to back up this fact.

Page 59, Joseph #15 was Joseph #8..

John's Joseph was #1392, He had one son and several daughters

Page 124, Zebulon #9 was a son of Joseph Cantrell but this Joseph was #1568 by his 2nd wife, Mrs Sarah Edwards n'ee Cantrell daughter of Joseph and Catherine heath Cantrell.

Page 60, William #630 was the only son of Joseph #1392

Page 62, Isaac #635 was a son of Benjamin #634.

Stephen #16 was not a soldier in the Rev. War. The soldier was his uncle Stephen who died in GA.

Elizabeth #802 did not marry Daniel Adcock but rather David Adcock

#808 married Mark Forrest as his lst of three wives.

Now to Thomas #23, my ancestor.

Gabriel #1099 did not go to MO. In early Dec. 1849, he tied a rope around his neck and jumped out of the barn loft.

Jacob #1092 died in 1840s in McMinn co. and in 1853, she joined my widowed great grandmother on the move to Dade co. MO. Son David had accompanied his uncle Elijah to Dade co. Elizabeth DeLong Cantrell was accompanied by daughter Elizabeth Jane, and the widow of Gabriel, Elizabeth McMinn Cantrell and her three children., and perhaps by son James. Gabriel's widow did not like MO. so she joined a wagon train and went west to CA. She married 2nd Grizzle Wallace. James may have accompanied her, as we never located him after 1850. When
)the new county of Webster MO was created. my G grandmother Nancy Smith Cantrell and her sister-in-law, Elizabeth Delong Cantrell moved to Cantrell Creek in the new county. Elizabeth Jane married James Jasper VanHooser. Jacob's dau. Mary Ann had married Bloomfield Logan in 1840 and moved to Dade co. in l848, the same time that he brother, David moved. Bloomfield Logan was a brother to William Calvin Logan who married her sister, Judith Malinda. William and Judith moved to Mo after 1870. Jacob's dau, Nancy married James Milton Rutherford. After the war, they moved to MO. and settled in Wright co. In 1883, she was a widow and drawing a pension.

Andrew Jackson #1103 did not move to MO. He was born in Feb. 1822 and in 1920 he was 98 years old and living in Bradley co. TN. By two wives. he reared a family of 10 children. Of all the families to mess up this was Christie's best. As her dasughter married a grandson of Jacob, it would
appear that this was one of the best possibilities to get correct. By the way, in 1920, Christie and her hiusband were living with the dau. iChattanoga. We understand that her records were given to the City librar in 1944 and they have never been catalogued. and they won't allow them to be
)searched.

Page 112, Reuben #24 Christie evidently viewed the 1790 census of NC and picked up a CURTIS family and accredited it to Reuben. so we don't really know who the father of #1235, 1236, 1237 was!

Page 115, Benjamin #26 was a son of Isaac and not John..

Page 118 James #28 was not a son of John but a son of Isaac.

Page 141 and 142 Isaac #1520 is really #10 The Protest of Isaac's will son. Peter names all of the children of Isaac with the lead off of eldest son. JACOB. Isaac's 3rd wife was Mary LINDER not Leonard. Can you now get some idea why I get so disgusted and upset when I read E-mail where you offer to send info from the Christie Book. Some years ago when genie was 1sr set up a cousin in Cisco, CA. started doing the same thing and several of the Cantrell Cousins convinced her to cease the practice. 40 years have gone into my recording of the Cantrell family history, I hate to see those years wasted by cousins accepting the Christie book as gospel. I don't claim my records are correct but they are as complete as my years of research have been able to make them. The last family historian was a 2nd cousin of my father and we spent many hours
together in IL and later in Fl where he died in his 90s; He died regretting mistakes he made in the records and as I reach the sunset of my life, I too will die, regretting I ask your forgiveness if this upsets you and I remain, in kinship

40179 There are two opposing theories to the parentage of Lucy Hanks. One theory says that she is the daughter of Joseph and Nanny (Lee) Hanks and had Nancy Hanks, President Abraham Lincoln's mother, out of wedlock. The other theory says Lucy was a widow to an unidentified son of Joseph Hanks and Nancy Hanks was his daughter. On 21 OCT 2015, the results of a mtDNA study on the matrilineal kin of Lucy Hanks appears to have finally put this issue to rest. Lucy is a Hanks and not a Shipley. To learn more about this controversy, read The Lincoln-Hanks Debate. Hanks, Lucy (I5654)

40189 There is little known about Nancy. Her last name is known as "Pettit" but no one has been able to link her to this name.

She was born about 1779 and married James N. Hembree the son of Joel Hembree & Hannah Pettit about 1799 . James Hembree is first shown on a 1800 census in Spartanburg, South Carolina with a wife and one child.

They migrated to central Tennessee by 1807 then to Missouri c. 1838, finally to Arkansas by 1842.

Nancy died sometime before 1850, her husband James is found on a 1850 Washington County Arkansas census without her and his last will & testament filed in Washington Arkansas does not mention her..James son Dr. Isaac Newton Hembree was named administer.

It is not clear if the place of Nancy's death was in Dade County, Missouri or Washington County, Arkansas. There is no source that James body was moved to Yamhill Oregon for a Masionic burial. No gravesite has been found for James or Nancy Hembree.

There children spread to Oregon, Washington, Texas, Missouri & Tennessee by 1860.

The children of James N. & Nancy are as;

1. Mourning Hembree b. 20 Sept 1800 Spartenburg S.C. m. Daniel Clark d. 14 April 1876 Warren Co. Tennessee

2. Rosannah Hembree b. 15 Nov 1802 Spartenburg S.C. m. Larkin Baker d. before 1850 Denton Texas

40190 There is much documentation regarding the Clontz' immigration to the "New World". Carl Clontz, of Mt.Vernon, KY, has written an excellent monograph regarding this this family;

"The history of the Clontz family in the United States likely begins with the arrival of Hieronymus Glantz on the ship, Adventure, which arrived in Philadelphia, in September, 1732. It had come from Rotterdam via the port of Cowes in Britain. The captain, in his passenger list, showed the following family, whose names and ages were given as:

Jerimy Glance 29
Marrea Medl. Glance 30
Anna Margreate Glance 9
Hance Micalle Glance 4

The adult male immigrants were required to sign two instruments attesting their allegiance - one to the Crown of England and one to the proprietor of the province. These lists were signed on September 23, 1732, and both (taken before different clerks) contain the signature: Hieronymus Glance.

Although he could sign his name (and was clearly literate in German), he apparently never learned English for he later made his mark on documents [which were] in English.

From Philadelphia the family appears to have migrated to south-central Virginia in what is now Mecklenburg County. The area was originally included in Brunswick County but became Lunenburg County in 1746, and in 1765, became Mecklenburg County, whose county seat is Boydton. Jeremiah, as he was then known, was shown on a tithe list,in 1748, as Jermiah Glaush. In 1749 and 1750, he was listed as Jeremiah Clanch; in 1751, as Jermiah Clansh and in 1752, as Jeremiah Claunch.

On October 2, 1750, he purchased a 200 acre tract of land from Drury Smith. In 1752, a tithe list included Jeremiah Claunch and also John Claunch, as a separate householder. Hance (or probably Hans) had anglicized his name adopting the English version - John. The tithe listings are consisent with ages shown by the ship captain.

In 1748, John Michael would been 19 or 20, depending on his birth date, and probably would not have been obligated for tithes. In 1752, he would have around 24 and would have been obligated. No other trace of him has been found in southern Virginia.

Jeremiah was issued a patent for an additional 200 acres in August, 1756. No other land acquisitions by him have been located; however, in June, 1758, he and his wife (Margaret) conveyed 555 acres to a Thomas Moore. Whether they stayed in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, or migrated further south cannot be determinded from the records that have been found, but a Jeremiah Claunch can be found there in the record until 1800, on tax lists or in signing various marriage bonds and marriage consents for his children. It is likely that a son, Jeremiah, and perhaps other children left progeny there. There is a gap between the 1758 deed and the 1782 census and tax record showing Jeremiah Claunch with six white family members. In 1793, William married. Matthew Claunch married in 1799, with Jeremiah as surety on his bond. Dennis Claunch married in 1803, and Jinny and Sally in 1804.

John Michael and a brother named Jacob migrated to southern North Carolina. In December,1768,John Michael Claunch patented 200 acres in Mecklenburgh (sic)
County, North Carolina, and in May, 1772, Jacob Clance patented 226 acres there.

Two brothers, Jeremiah Clontz and George Clontz were in born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina,in the years 1756 and 1759, respectively. The place of birth is now in Cabarrus County. Both of these men enlisted and served in the Revolutionary War and received pensions. George's nine-month enlistment was up, August 5, 1779, and he was sick and his father came and took him back to Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. They are listed as heads of household in North Carolina in the 1790 census. George was in Cabarrus County and Jeremiah was in Mecklenburg.

John Michael Clontz and Wife, Margaret, sold their patented land to a Christian Goodman, in 1784, and no further trace can be found of them in North Carolina but a Michael Clontz is shown in South Carolina a little south and east of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in the 1790 census. No further trace of John Michael can be found [ed.note: John would have been 62 years of age during that census]. Jacob Clance cannot be traced and there is no record of his conveying away the patented land [ed.note: in 1788, Lincoln County, NC, "Jacob Glance" was noted on a "Confiscation List" and believed to have been a royalist].

Since Jeremiah and George Clontz (this is the spelling in the Revolutionary War Records) were both born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and since John Michael Clontz was still there in 1784, it is likely that they are his sons [John Michael] and that he was the same John Miachel Glantz who arrived in Philadephia, in 1732, as a 4-year old boy.

Jeremiah Clontz remained in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina and reared six children. Their names were Henry, Jeremiah, Jacob, Sarah, John Adam and
Catherine. There are numerous descendants still in Charlotte and Mecklenburg Counties, North Carolina.

In 1796, George Clonts purchased 100 acres of land in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, from his father-in-law, Jacob Cline (George married Chloe Cline, in August, 1783). The deed was dated 1796.

In 1801, Christian Claunce was granted 90 acres in Cabarrus County, North Carolina.

George sold his land to a John Clons on September 14, 1801, and Christian (Clance) sold his, July 27, 1802 and they and their immediate families both migrated west to Burke County. George moved in 1802 and both appear in Burke County in the 1810 census. In addition, Jacob Clontz who was 20-26 and John Clontz, who was over 45 were listed in Burke County in 1810. Christian was under 45 years of age and his oldest child was less than 16 years of age.

It is likley that George, who was 51, Christian and John were brothers. Jacob was probably the son of George or John. In 1810, John only had daughters at home. Jacob was listed with two sons under 10 in 1810, but did not have any sons at home in 1820.

By 1820, the only heads of household listed in Burke County were George Clonce, George, Jr., Christian, William and Jacob. Both Christian and George had sons named Michael - one born in 1797 and one born in 1803. The latter was George's son and he married Ann Stokes in Burke County, North Carolina, on April 12, 1828.

40191 There is no agreement regarding John's marriage...

According to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol.30, p.203, John Rock Smith's wife was a daughter of Lt. John Strickland. Some have taken that to mean Martha Strickland. The Treadwell Genealogy says his wife was Hannah Murry (c1621-c1661). Long Island Genealogies says she was possibly named Mary, who died between 1660 and 1665, after which John married Sara. Another source claims Elizabeth Gildersleeve (b.1624), daughter of Richard Gildersleeve and Jo Anna Appleton. another claims Elizabeth Wood, daughter of Jeremiah Wood (b.1618) and the same Elizabeth Gildersleeve. In short, there is no agreement as to the identity of John Rock Smith's wife. But she does NOT appear to have been Gildersleeve nor Wood. Lists of children vary, too. 
Smith, John "Rock" Sr. (I16679)
 
40192 There is no documentation to prove Thomas Harper's kinship to John Harper, however, his son, William Thomas Harper, is enumerated in the household of James Hennessee during the Warren County, Tennessee of 1850 Census (cited below).

I posit it is highly possible that James Hennessee is William's uncle by marriage. James Hennessee first married, Sarah "Sallie" Wilcher, sister to Elizabeth "Betsy" Wilcher who married John Harper. Click here to view their relationship:

Ergo, William is the son of Thomas Harper, who would be the son of Elizabeth "Betsy" Wilcher, who married John Harper, and is the daughter of Thomas Wilcher...DAH
