Dear David,

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

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


MERRIMAN/MERRYMAN


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

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

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

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

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

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

Pg. 414--Tues Mar 13, 1849 William Merriman to be allowed to file a cross bill in this same cause.

Pg. 427--Tues 12th Mar 1850--

John Thurman vs William Merriman. John Spears, James D. Spears, Tho. Sutherland & Allen Merriman Adms. of D. Merriman & Wiiliam Merriman vs John Thurman, James G. Spears & others appearing to the court that deft. William Merriman is justly in debt to complainant Thurman as follows-by judgement remembered by Elijah M. Hale & Johnathan Whiteside------ note with interest sum of $109.82 (about estate earlier).

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

Sept 1853--

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

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

Pg 590--Tues Mar 13, 1855

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

Mary Merryman mentioned.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Notes on Marriage Records

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

of 5775

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

1. Jacob Harmon Jr., b. c 1752. d. 1839, Garrard County, Ky.
2. Israel Harmon, b. c 1754. d. after 1805, probably at Livingstone County, Ky. He was married Keziah Thompson in 1788 at Lincoln County, Ky.
3. William Harmon, b. c 1758. d. bet 1794 and 1799 at either Montgomery County, Virginia or Pulaski County, Ky.
4. Lowes/Louisa Harmon, b. c 1760. She married Jonathan Taylor of Garrard County, Ky.
5. John Harmon, b. c 1767. d. after 1825, Marion County, Indiana. He married Elizabeth Byrd in 1787.

7. Mary Harmon, b. c1771. She married James Baxter in 1789 at Lincoln County, Ky.
8. Rachel Harmon, b. c1774. She married Joseph Horn in 1794 at Lincoln County, Ky.

41244 “Abraham Denton moved to the Watauga settlements by 1775, and the family was forced back into Virginia by the Cherokee invasion during the summer of 1776. Abraham was active in the affairs of Washington and Greene Counties. Abraham apparently was living in the section of Washington County which was formed into Greene County. August 23, 1784, Abraham was a delegate from Greene County to the convention held in Jonesboro and which led to the formation of the State of Franklin. Abraham was one of five grantees to 150 acres lying in the Fork of Big Pigeon and French Broad River. This grant was issued by North Carolina June 11, 1788. The land is located in what is now Cocke County, Tennessee. The first church established in what is now Cocke County, Tennessee was the Big Pigeon Baptist Church. Among the charter members is found Mourning Denton. Abraham seems to have disappeared from East Tennessee by the time Tennessee became a state. It is said that he appears in White County, Tennessee about 1809 and in Perry County in 1821. In her book, Edythe Whitely lists the children of Abraham and Mourning Denton. The list seems to have been prepared from letters and other papers collected from John S.[avage] Denton. One letter cited in her book was from Holland Denton, grandson of Abraham and Mourning.”

“Some of the leaders, reflecting that congress might decline to accept the territory ceded, and remembering that the constitution of North Carolina had made provisions for a future state within her limits on the western side of the Alleghanies, conceived the idea of forming a new state at once and forstalling the carrying out of the cessation programme,

“It was proposed that each captain’s company elect two representatives to asssemble and deliberate on conditions. Davidson county took no part in the proceedings.....Those from Greene county were: Daniel Kennedy, Alexander Outlaw, Joseph Gist, Samuel Weir, Asahel Rawlings, Joseph Bullard, John Managhan, John Murphy, David Campbell, Archibald Stone, Abraham Denton, Charles Robinson, and Elisha Baker.

“The representatives met at Jonesboro August 23, 1874, and organized by selecting John Sevier president and Landon Carter secretary.”
