41002 William's fourth wife...Lois Kochanski Estes, Wilmouth (I4914)
 
41003 William's obituary in portion reads as such:

"On the Saturday preceding his death, whilst returning from Church he received a stroke of appoplexy, and fell suddenly from his horse, from whence he was conveyed to his own house and survived in much pain until the following Thursday." His obituary described him in glowing terms as a beloved member of the community, endeared as a father and friend, and "he is gone to reap the reward of a well spent life, and the tears of his friends and the regrets of a bereaved community attended him to his grave."

William and Lydia did have 7 children:
John Calvin Mynatt b/ 31 July 1780
Richard Mynatt b/ 4 May 1782
Joseph Mynatt b/ 17 Mar. 1784
William C. Mynatt b/ ca 1786-88
Annie Mynatt b/ 5 Jan. 1790
Susan Mynatt b/ 17 Jan. 1792
Lydia Mynatt b/ 25 Nov. 1794; d/ 20 Dec. 1800

IMO, it appears that William C., son of Richard came directly to the area of what is now Knox County, TN, and at that time may have included some of what is now a portion Union and/or Grainger Counties. There are Mynatts all over Eastern Tennessee (as well as all over the world), most of them with a straight line back to Richard Mynatt, the first Mynatt in the Americas, through his son William C. Mynatt. In my line of the famiily, even the given names are repeated from those first generations in America: John, Calvin, Harry, Joseph, William, Bill . . . just to name a few. All of us have a family heritage to be proud of. We come from a long line of hard-working, loving and caring family. It is a trait that seems to carry over in our Mynatt genes. I'll have to say I've never met a Mynatt I didn't like.

41020 WILLS FOR JOSEPH CLARK & ELIZABETH CLARKE
Posted By: Donna Brown
Date: Sunday, 1 May 2005, at 6:46 p.m.

Can any one out there do two will lookups for me? I would love to know what's in the will of Joseph Clark, 1834, Will Book 1, Page 83 and Elizabeth Clarke's will, 1837, Will Book 1, page 202, both in Warren County, TN.

I live in Springfield, MO and am searching for parents of my gr. gr. grandfather, James Clark. James' siblings were William, Samuel, Thomas, Stewart, John, Benjamin, Alexander, Deborah and Sarah (Sally). James lived in Warren Co., TN before moving to Madison Co., AR ca 1831 where he and his wife, Agnes Henderson Clark, both passed away.

Any help appreciated.

41024 Windsor Castle is a royal residence at Windsor in the English county of Berkshire. It is notable for its long association with the English and later British royal family and for its architecture. The original castle was built in the 11th century after the Norman invasion of England by William the Conqueror. Since the time of Henry I, it has been used by all monarchs, and is the longest-occupied palace in Europe. The castle's lavish early 19th-century State Apartments were described by the art historian Hugh Roberts as "a superb and unrivalled sequence of rooms widely regarded as the finest and most complete expression of later Georgian taste".[1] Inside the castle walls is the 15th-century St George's Chapel, considered by the historian John Martin Robinson to be "one of the supreme achievements of English Perpendicular Gothic" design.

41045 WMH was fun-loving person and liked to tease. When his great-grandchildren would come to see him he would give then a quarter. He was interested in seeing his family grow. WMH had to use a walker and later a wheelchair because of his knees being so weak. WMH & Nadar lived by themselves and she took care of him until 2 years before they died...

Nadar had lots of wisdom and was totally dedicated to her family and W.M. She used to hitch up the horses to take her family to church. When automobiles were invented she never learned how to drive...

41078 Worth investigating:


Notes on the Capshaw family of Warren & Dekalb Co, Tennessee

James Emory’s second wife Hester or Esther was probably a Capshaw by birth
(born in Rutherford County, North Carolina) but she could just be a daughter in
law of the Capshaws. The estate or will of Josiah Capshaw should be helpful in
settling this. She could even be an “extra” daughter fathered by a Cherokee girl
or a servant. Or a niece.

The pioneer, Josiah Capshaw, was a Revolutionary War soldier from Delaware
who settled on the North Carolina frontier (Rutherford County). His son Josiah
came to White or Warren County, Tennessee, during the War of 1812. On 16
June 1814 Josiah and wife Elizabeth Capshaw sold interest in land in Rutherford
County (NC) to John Moore (recorded 3 Nov 1815 White Co, TN). On 25 Jan
1822 William Franks and his two brothers were tried for the assault & battery of
Josiah Capshaw in White County. In 1836 Josiah and William Capshaw were on
the tax list for Warren County in that part that later became Dekalb County. The
Capshaw family became numerous in Dekalb County and fielded Confederate
and Union soldiers from that county.


Because Hester (Esther) Emory is shown as a Capshaw in the 1850 census it is
possible that she was an Emory (Hembree) by birth who married a Capshaw then
when she was widowed she (and some of her children) reverted back to the
Emory surname. This is possible because the Emory (Hembree) family was in
Rutherford County, NC when she was reaching marriage age (1830). The Esther
name runs in the Abraham Hembree family. This possibility should be further
investigated. I found no Capshaw in the 1830 or 1840 census that plots to Esther
and her children as well as the census for James Emery in Sevier County does.
She and her children match the James Emery family but if a Capshaw family is
discovered that provides a fit, it should be examined. Because the CARROLL
family can be found alongside the CAPSHAW family in Rutherford Co, NC,
it is more than likely that she was a Capshaw who married James Emery in
Rutherford County soon after the death of his first wife. This would be the
source for the Carroll David (David Carroll?) name of one of the sons.

41086 Writes great-granddaughter, Linda Hennessee Taylor;

"The first group of anecdotes concerns Patrick Alexander Hennessee (1838-1917) of White County. My information comes from his granddaughter, Ora Hennessee Cooper (1892-1979), the daughter of James Robert Hennessee (1872-1965). Ora told me Patrick was lazy and mean. He seldom worked. When he needed money, he would sell some of the land he inherited and his wife's property after they were married.

Ora said he would sit by the fire and chew tobacco. He would spit it in the clean floor so his wife would have to clean it again. Once when Ora was staying with her grandparents, Patrick started fussing at her about something unimportant. Ora got so angry she told him, "If you don't hush I am going to throw this skillet of hot grease in your face." Patrick didn't bother her after this incident. Ora would become angry when telling the story.

The meanest thing Ora remembered Patrick doing involved her brother William Clayton (1806-1918). Clayton was staying with his grandparents one cold winter. Patrick found fault with the way Clayton had built the morning fire. He threatened to beat Clayton with his cane. Clayton was so scared he left the house and ran about a mile to his other grandparents' house even though there was snow on the ground and he was barefoot. Grandmother Sarah Stone Wilhite was furious with Patrick. According to Ora, Patrick was not well thought of by anyone. Ora was blunt and plain spoken."

Editor's Note: Interviewed Bula Simpson Bradley, 87, granddaughter of Patrick, in June of 1991. She told similar tales about her grandfather in that he was mean and ornery. As a child Bula would avoid Patrick and his cane at all possible costs...DAH.

Hennessee, Patrick Roberts Alexander (I1490)
 
41087 Writes Linda Faye Hennessee Taylor, his granddaughter;

"My grandfather James Robert Hennessee owned good farm land in White County. Tenant farmers and other people worked it for him. He was active in local government; serving as deputy sheriff, then sheriff and later serving two terms county trustee. He concluded his career serving as postmaster from 1933-45.

Early in the 1900's, when he was a deputy sheriff, a black man was in jail for murder. The negro watched as men began to build a scaffold. He asked Deputy Hennessee if the scaffold was being built to hang him.

Hennessee told him, "Yes, it is." The black man sorrowfully replied, "I don't thnk I can stand that."

The sheriff called Jim Hennessee in to tell him he had a job for him to do. Hennessee said, "You want me to hang 'Tom' don't you."

The high sheriff replied, "Yes."

Hennessee said, "I can't do that. I don't hang nigras." (The implication being that it would like hanging a child.)
