bullet  Research Notes:


In an effort to prove or disprove Elizabeth Skillern married Jonathan Atherly, I spent some time researching the Skillerns of Orange County, Virginia, to find something that would give us clues to a connection. Unfortunately, the research did nothing to prove a connection, but it did uncover some very interesting information about the family. Of note, though, is the fact that no Atherly at all ever appears in any record of Orange County or Augusta County or Botetourt County of Virginia. Not even a marriage record. However, clues are found in the information that follows that suggests the Skillern girls married other men.

I am still very skeptical that Jonathan Atherly ever left his home in Craven County, North Carolina to travel the great distance to Virginia to marry Elizabeth Skillern. And no record exists that the Skillerns ever came to North Carolina.

However, the research did prove that Sarah Skillern of Orange County, Virginia and sister to Elizabeth, did not marry Joseph Atherly of Craven County, North Carolina - Jonathan's father. According to her father's will, Sarah Skillern was not of age in 1744; certainly not the same Sarah Atherly that is married and has four children in North Carolina.

Please view the attachment document (Word format) where I have compiled all the information I have found on the Skillerns in Virginia from 1744 to 1780. Ever wonder what happened to Mrs. Skillern when her husband died in 1744...it's a very interesting and somewhat amusing tale that unfolds in that attached court documents.

In an effort to prove or disprove Elizabeth Skillern married Jonathan Atherly, I researched the Skillerns of Orange County, Virginia.

However, clues are found in the information that follows that suggests the Skillern girls married other men.

County Changes in Virginia

When the William & Elizabeth Skillern family arrived in Virginia they settled in an area that was located in Orange County. It was in Orange County that little Elizabeth Skillern was born, and where the father, William Skillern, wrote his will and died, all between 1738 and 1745.

In 1745 the portion of land where the Skillerns lived was taken from Orange County to create the new county of Augusta. Therefore, after 1745 all records of the Skillern family are found in Augusta County. This happened to the Skillern family again in 1770 when their land became part of the newly formed Botetourt County of Virginia, where thereafter their records are found.

Marriage Information in Virginia

During the time period the Skillern children were marrying, the law of Virginia was that only a church official could perform a marriage, and the couple had to obtain a marriage license before going before the church official. Otherwise, the state of Virginia would not recognize the marriage as legal nor accept the children of the marriage as legitimate. Consequently, the county clerk office distributed the marriage licenses and kept a record of only the grooms' names. No county records of the actual marriage exists. As a result, there are no marriage licenses to be found for the Skillern daughters Isabel, Elizabeth and Sarah; but William and George's licenses are found. Additionally, no marriage license for any Atherlys are found.

It wasn't until many years later that the law changed, resulting in more detailed marriage records being kept by the counties, showing both the bride and groom, their bondsmen, and even the girl's father. But unfortunately, this was too late to record our Skillerns.

ORANGE COUNTY, VIRGINIA, 16 January 1744

I constitute and appoint Cornili James Patton and Captain Peter Jefferson Capn Thomas Minersathers & Thomas Skillern Executors as witness my hand and seal the day and year 1744 William Skillern Witnesses: Robert Black; Robert Black

(William Skillern's last will proves that Joseph Atherly's wife, Sarah, was not Sarah Skillern the daughter of William and Elizabeth Skillern of Orange & Augusta Counties, Virginia. Tthe underlined phrase in the will "…till my eldest children come of age" indicates none of his children are of age at the time he wrote his will in 1744, thereby proving that Sarah Atherly, who is married with four children in 1744, is not Sarah Skillern.)

Sarah married Joseph Atherly Sr. about 1734 in New Bern, Craven, North Carolina, United States.1 (Joseph Atherly Sr. was born circa 1711 in New Bern, Craven, North Carolina, United States 5 and died circa Dec 1769 in New Bern, Craven, North Carolina, United States 6 7.)


bullet  Marriage Notes:

 
JOSEPH & SARAH ATHERLY

Our earliest recorded ancestors, Joseph Atherly and his wife, Sarah, date prior to the American Revolution. His birth is calculated around 1711, based on when he died, the ages of children, and the first court record in 1733 as a witness to a land purchase, which shows he is of legal age. We do not yet know where he was born, so we refer to him as being “of New Bern, Craven County, North Carolina” where we know he lived from 1733 to 1769.
 
New Bern is a major port of call in North Carolina. Family tradition has it that the family lived close enough to the water's edge to “hear the beat of the sea.”
 
John Atherly, perhaps Joseph's brother, also appears in early Craven County court records, first in 1731 where he witnesses the purchase of land and again in 1748 where he sells land. No other records of this John Atherly have been found. However, based on the fact that he sells land in 1748, he had to have purchased the land prior but no land records reflect this purchase. Likely Joseph also purchased land early on, but no record is available.
 
Between 1742-1748 (date on my records unclear), Joseph buys 320 acres of land from Francis Dawson which contains a creek. This becomes known as Dawson Creek. The land is on the north side of the Neuse River. This is the area where the Atherlys stay throughout their time in North Carolina. One of Joseph's neighbors is Samuel Roberts, who eventually becomes his son-in-law. By 1753, Joseph is well established in the community and is appointed to serve as grand juryman and petty juryman.
 
In 1755 Joseph deeds 300 acres of land to his son, Isaac, “love, good will, and affection.” As it's the only land deeded to any of his sons, it indicates Isaac is his oldest son and he is now of legal age to own property. This was to be his inheritance, as he only receives “one shilling sterling” when his mother dies. Using the year 1755, we can calculate that Joseph married sometime around 1733-1734, and Isaac was born about 1735, using the 1790 census calculations.
 
We know that Joseph's wife is Sarah as he names her as his executor in his will of 1769. Her maiden name is unknown, although there is an unsubstantiated theory that she was a Skillern, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Skillern of Orange county, Virginia. However, a review of William Skillern's will proves Sarah Atherly is not William Skillern's daughter, because William makes the statement in his will of 1744/45 “…til my eldest children are of age…” If none of his children are “of age” in 1744, then his daughter can't be Sarah Atherly with four children in 1744.
 
During their marriage, at least three more children were born to Joseph and Sarah. These children are listed in Sarah's will as Jonathan, Joseph Jr. and an unnamed daughter married to Samuel Roberts. We assume the daughter past away prior to the mother's will of 1790 since Sarah only mentions her son-in-law in giving him one shilling sterling. Jonathan seems to be the next oldest son as he is co-executor of her will with Isaac. Because his birthday is calculated later around 1740 based on census records, the daughter is placed as second child in birth order to fill in the five-year gap between Isaac and Jonathan. Joseph Jr. is named last in the will, so he is placed last in the birth order.
 
Around 1758, Joseph's health begins to fail him so he petitions the court to excused him from paying public taxes and doing public duties. His petition was granted. This was usually only done for the infirm, so Joseph must have been quite ill. However, his son Isaac is found doing his share of jury duty.
 
In 1769, Joseph and Sarah were both listed as tax payers and can be found on the tax records of North Carolina. Their sons, Jonathan and Joseph Jr. are also listed on these tax records. They are all living in Craven county. However, Isaac is not listed on the taxpayer lists for North Carolina. Apparently, Isaac left North Carolina for a period of time and went to Granville County, South Carolina at this time. While there he loans 400 pounds to Alexis Mador Forster (relationship unknown) and on the bond it is noted that they are both of Granville county, S. C. By 1790 Isaac has returned to Craven county, North Carolina as he appears on the 1790 census as living alone with one slave. In 1791 he files suit to the estate of Forster for his money.
 
On July 17, 1769 Joseph made his will stating he was very sick, and leaving all his worldly goods to his “well beloved wife” Sarah Atherly. His will was proved in December court of 1769, so he died between July and December. As his executor, Sarah made an inventory of her deceased husband's belongings in early 1770.
 
The Revolutionary War breaks out in America and the Atherlys must decide where their loyalties lie: with the patriots in the new country or as English subjects to the King of England. The battle of New Bern, North Carolina took place near their home, and the sons of Joseph were soldiers. We have documentation that show Jonathan and Joseph Jr. as soldiers and Jonathan was once a prisoner on a ship during the war.
 
On the 1790 Census of Newbern, Craven, North Carolina, Sarah is not listed as head of household, so she is likely living with her son, Jonathan. Sarah Atherly made her will on 13 November 1790, stating she was of Craven county in the province of North Carolina. She also names her children: Jonathan, Joseph, Isaac, and her son-in-law Samuel Roberts. Jonathan and Isaac are her executors (indicating they are likely her two oldest sons), and a Sally Atherly is a witness. Sally is likely Joseph's wife, though we have no proof. Sarah's will is proven in March Court 1796, indicating she has died by 1796.
 
In all the land deeds in which Isaac is involved, there is no mention of a wife. In the 1790 census he is found living alone. Whether he ever married and had kids is unknown. He did not leave a will. However, it is possible that while Isaac was in South Carolina after 1770, he may have married and had children: Jesse and a daughter, the married Elizabeth Foley who is one of the administrators of his estate when he dies in 1803. No research on Isaac in South Carolina has yet to be conducted, but this might prove of value to establish the relationship of Jesse and Elizabeth. Jesse Atherly makes his first appearance in North Carolina in 1796 when he sells the land he owns with Jonathan and Elizabeth Atherly. We known Isaac returned to North Carolina by 1791 as he appears in court to sue someone back in South Carolina, so this ties in well with the appearance of Jesse - but it's just a theory.
 
Joseph Jr. is also a mystery. No records are in the county of him buying or selling land. However, he did build a road in 1761. Family tradition believes he left North Carolina with his brother Jonathan to Tennessee, but no records in Tennessee show this. Instead, Joseph died around 1800, without a will, in Craven County, North Carolina, where James Atherly, who is probably his son, was the administrator of his estate in 1801. James prepared an inventory of Joseph's estate and the goods and chattel were sold off to friends and family. Sally Atherly purchased furniture from his estate. Eleven years have passed since she was a witness to Sarah's will. Sally is likely Joseph's wife. Levi Atherly also purchases from the estate sale, indicating he is probably a son. Ruthie Atherly is likely a daughter (or is it Mary who is left as “head of household in the 1800 census??). Could Jesse Atherly be a son also?
 
Sometime after his mother died in 1796 and before 1801, Jonathan Atherly and his family left North Carolina for the wild frontiers of the west in Tennessee. For some unknown reason, when they arrive in Tennessee, the spelling of their name changes with an “E” added to it: Eatherly. It appears that Jesse Atherly went with Jonathan to Tennessee as there are two lines of Atherlys in Tennessee.
 
Levi Atherly married Nancy Cannady in 1811 In 1817 Levi died without a will, leaving James to be the administrator of his estate. .. again, another indication that the two are brothers. James eventually married in 1828 to Mariam Hoover. However, James must have died shortly afterward because Mariam Atherly is shown to have married two years later. The last Atherly found in North Carolina is Jesse Atherly who married Susan Dixon in 1849 - his relationship is unknown, but he was likely James or Levy's son from their short marriages.
