        Jane Dickey [E4c5c2i1], daughter of Mary Ann East and Edwin Lewis Dickey, was born in 1869 in Lincoln Co MS. She was not yet named and the census taker called her “Dickey, In Pink” for the census record. (Perhaps the color pink was a baby girl’s typical clothing color back in the 19th Century, as it was in the 20th and 21st Centuries.) Note that Lincoln Co MS was formed in 1870 from eastern Franklin Co and other counties. So although Jane appeared to have been born in Lincoln Co, she was actually born in Franklin Co, in the part which became Lincoln Co the following year. (39rs)


        John Calvin Dickey [E4c5c2i6], son of Mary Ann East and Edwin Lewis Dickey, was born 19 October 1882 in Lincoln Co MS, and lived at Lucien, Franklin Co in September 1918 and was then married.

        Lemuel Dickey [E4c5c2i4], son of Mary Ann East and Edwin Lewis Dickey, was born 10 July 1877 (age 3 in 1880, 29 in 1900) in Lincoln Co MS. He married Dora Smith in Lincoln Co on 24 December 1895 and they lived in Franklin Co. She was born in April 1877 in Lincoln Co MS, daughter of Brantley Smith and Catherine Lofton. Dora apparently died about 1901 and Lemuel then married Lou Ella Montgomery in Lincoln Co on 22 February 1906. Lou Ella was born in August 1874 either in Pike Co MS or at Bogue Chitto, Lincoln Co MS, daughter of Constantine Montgomery and Arcady Elizabeth Moak. In 1930 Lou Ella was “Mrs L E Dickey,” so we don’t know if her late husband had a middle initial E, or the Mrs L E stood for Mrs Lou Ella. The eldest three boys in Lou Ella’s home in 1910 were called step-sons, and Lou Ella was then a widow. Therefore, Lemuel died between 1906 and 1910. His and Dora’s sons were born in Franklin Co MS, and his and Lou Ella’s son was born in Lincoln Co MS-

a.     William P Dickey, b 7 Sep 1896 in Franklin Co. In June 1917 he lived at Bogue Chitto. Lincoln Co. He named “Edwin L Dickey” as his closest relative; Edwin also lived at Bogue Chitto. In 1917 William worked for The LN Dantzler Ship Company. (M,38u,39v)

b.     Edwin Lewis Dickey, b 19 Mar 1898, was called Edward in the 1900 census, and born 19 May 1898. He was named by his brother William P Dickey as his nearest relative in the June 1917 draft registration. Edwin lived at Bogue Chitto in 1918, and he named Louella Dickey as his nearest relative. Louella lived at Bogue Chitto in 1917 also. In 1920 Edwin was a Private in the US Army, stationed at Camp Marfa, Presidio Co TX. And in 1920 there were no Dickey families living at Bogue Chitto. The only Lou Ella / Louella Dicky found in Lincoln Co MS where Bogue Chitto is located was the wife of John Calvin Dickey. (M,38u,39v,805w)

c.     Lyman A Dickey, b 1901, was not found in 1920, so probably died as a youth. (39v)

        Christiana Downey [E1a5d3], daughter of Margaret H Pace and George W Downey, was born in 1864 in Washington Co IL. She used her correct name Christian in 1880 in her parents’ home, but otherwise always went by the name Anna or Annie. She married Cyrus W Hamilton in Marion Co on 15 May 1883. He was born in 1862 in Jo Daviess Co IL, son of Mrs Lucinda Hamilton from OH who lived at Warren, Jo Daviess Co in 1870. Cyrus died by 1900. His widowed mother was born in OH in 1835, so presumably was his father also born about that time. Afterwards, After Cyrus died, Ann lived with her youngest brother George at East St Louis and with her sister Ada. It does not appear that Anna had children.

NOTE: There were two Anna Hamilton women in the early decades of the 20th Century, both living in St Clair Co, and both born in the 1860s.

He married Katherine A Estrick in Kane Co on 6 August 1896 and they lived there at Aurora. She was born in November 1876 in Germany and immigrated to the US in 1890. She must have been the person who talked to the 1900 census taker because George’s age was two years off, and his parents’ birth places were not known; the 1910 census information was correct. George was an insurance agent in 1900, but in 1910 was a laborer at odd jobs.

7.     Nannie Dunagan , b May 1892, married Lum Luster Strunk about 1913 and moved to Benton Harbor, Berrien Co MI by the summer of 1917 where Lum had a job in a steel foundry. He was born at Winfield, Scott Co TN on 1 July 1892 of KY born parents; his signature on his WW1 draft card is clearly “Lum Luster Strunk.” Their first child was born back in Pulaski Co, probably at Nannie’s parents’ home; they had a second daughter at Benton Harbor. Nannie died at Benton Harbor between 1923 and 1930-

        a.     Pauline Virginia Strunk, b 1 Jun 1914 in Pulaski Co KY, lived in Berrien Co MI from when she was a small child. (1025b,946wf)

        b.     Edna Strunk, b 1923 in Berrien Co MI. She married Harold DeMorrow on or soon after 23 August 1949. He was born about 1921. (946Nf)

And this elder Lum had an older brother Alexander Strunk who married Martha Ann Taylor. Alex and Martha had children; one was Columbus Strunk, born in July 1892 in Scott Co and who married a woman named Nannie Mae _____, according to family records. The coincidences are too great to ignore. Columbus was probably the Lum Luster Strunk who married Nannie Dunagan. But Nannie’s husband used the name L L Strunk in the 1920 census, and the name Lester Strunk in the 1930 census.

Jesse S East [E4a3a6d2] and descendants also lived in Berrien Co MI from the 1870s. (M,125u,1025v,946wf)

Since two siblings, born over three years apart, died as children on the same day, then they probably had the same disease, or both wandered into deadly danger together on the farm. (BM,62u)

        Aaron East entered 116 acres of land in Wayne Co TN under the provisions of the occupant law of 1837. And on 4 August 1838 he sold that land to Thomas Morrison. Aaron had to be an adult to claim the 116 acres in the first place, so was born by about 1817. There was a Joel East of Caldwell Co KY, married to Rhoda Smith (daughter of Joel Smith and Mary _____) by 1818; this Joel had a brother-in-law named Aaron Smith, so perhaps there might have been a son named Aaron East, named after his uncle.

        An Aaron S East, born in 1817 in KY of SC parents, was living in Madison Co IL on 28 September 1854 when he purchased 80 acres of government land in Jersey Co (the neighboring Co). This Aaron had married Susanna Lyon in Macoupian Co on 12 October 1847, so she was his second wife. She was the same age as Aaron. Both were born in KY. In 1850 they had three children, all born in Madison Co. In 1870 they were living in Bond Co IL near Elm Point. In 1880 Aaron and his wife lived at Grisham, Montgomery Co IL.

        Abraham East, parents unknown, was likely closely related to Cornelius East of Lincoln Co KY. Abraham witnessed the marriage between Jenny Dillingham and John Emmerson in Lincoln Co on 6 March 1800. This puts Abraham’s birth date at about 1779 or before. Another witness at this marriage was William Dillingham (Jenny’s brother?), and the bride’s father was Michael Dillingham. (M52)

He was a teen when his parents moved to southwest OH. In 1860 he lived and worked on the Reuben Bristol (age 56) farm in the Mifflin area (he was also listed with his parents in Perry Twp). Note that Byron's eldest son was named Bristol. Mr Bristol had a daughter named Mary H Bristoll, and in 1860 her age was 28 (born 1832). The Mary H who married Byron East in 1861 was born in 1835, but perhaps one of those census ages was a bit of vanity on her part. She is very likely the daughter of Reuben Bristol and his wife Mary McKinsie. Byron and Mary H Bristol lived in Pike Co in 1870 where he was a farmer (wife Mary was then age 35). In 1880 they lived at Lima, Allen Co OH and he was a lawyer. Mary was born in OH (age 40 in 1880).

        Addison East [E4c1a2g], son of Benjamin East and Nancy Ann Pruitt, was born 28 April 1786 in Goochland Co VA. He moved to Davidson Co TN about 1805 and was still there in 1830, as was his brother Edward Hyde East [E4c1a2i], the only other family with an East name at that time.

        Adoline M East [E1b4b9], daughter of Reuben East and Harriet Knight Young, was born 7 September 1861 in Wayne Co TN, but grew up at Savannah. Addie's parents owned a hotel at Savannah called the East House, and she probably met her husband Harry H Harns while he was staying at their hotel. Addie had two children prior to ever marrying, and their father's identity may never be known. She and a Fred Page took out a marriage license at Savannah on 28 November 1881, but this marriage was never completed. Addie married Harry about 1889, perhaps at St Louis, MO, for in May of 1889 Addie and Harry, and Addie's sisters Nannie and Jennie East, and Jennie's husband C L Hefner took the W H Cherry steamboat from Savannah to St Louis; it was about this time that the local newspaper, the Savannah Courier, began to report news about Harry as if he was a member of the East family. C L Hefner, Addie’s brother-in-law, was the Courier's editor. (The 1910 Evansville, IN census said that they were married for 27 tears, hence married about 1883.) Harry Harns was a wallpaper hanger, and was born 2 June 1868 in Ohio. His father was from NY, and died at the East House in the fall of 1875. In April 1892 Addie, Harry, and her children moved from Savannah to Evansville, IN, and there they opened a wallpaper store.

        The 1900 Federal census of Evansville, IN shows Addie’s birth date as September 1862, Harry was age 32, born in OH, they were married 11 years, the daughter’s name as Roselle, age 15, the son was Herbert, age 21, and they were buying their own home at 518 Campbell St; the 1910 census shows them at the same address, Addie was age 48, Harry was age 44 born in OH, and the daughter was Moselle, age 24 and single, and their son Herbert wasn’t there; the 1920 census of Evansville shows Addie’s age as 58, Harry was age 53 born in OH, they owned their home outright at the same location, and the daughter’s name as Mozelle, age 34 and single; the 1930 census shows that Harry had died in the 1920s. He died from a fall from a ladder while painting someone’s home, on 15 September 1928 at Evansville. After he died, Addie moved to another address about ten miles south (1418 Judson Ave) and owned the home, she was age 68, was a widow, and Moselle was still single and living with Addie, and was age 43. Both addresses were within walking distance to the railroad where Moselle worked.

        Addie died at home 1 January 1931 and was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery with her two children and Harry in Oak Hill Cemetery at Evansville. He died 15 September 1928 of a fractured skull. Addie's children carried the Harns name since Addie's marriage; they were-

a.     Herbert Harns, b 2 Jan 1879

b.     Moselle Harns, b Jan 1886

Three graves away from Harry in Oak Hill Cemetery is the undated grave of William C Harns It is unlikely to be Harry’s father, since his father died many years prior in Savannah, TN. (M77,FE, ML,Z,11q,51Nuvwfc, 9rsm)


        Adra Mae East [E19a8e4], daughter of Stephen Bernard East and Mary Tullula Whitlow, was born 2 January 1885 in Tallapoosa Co AL.

She is buried in Dadeville Cemetery, Tallapoosa Co. Adra and Joseph had about six children, and she also raised Joseph’s youngest child from his first marriage; all were born at Dadeville, Tallapoosa Co AL-

Joseph’s first wife was Cora Orlean Black, whom he married about 1895. She was born 17 September 1871, and died 6 October 1908 at Dadeville. They had four children, all born at Dadeville: Lewis Curtis, born March 1896, Permelia Marie, born 30 January 1899, Thomas, born 1901, and Ralph S, born 23 May 1906. Permelia married Bernard Cumbee East [E19a8e10] in 1918 in Tallapoosa Co. (CS,258uvwfm)


        Adrian Martin East [E4a2a2b4b13], son of James Templeton East and Minnie Jean Lewis, was born 7 May 1916 at Towner, McHenry Co ND. He grew up in IA and at Bayfield, WI. Adrian married Leona Niffon in 1940 and they had four children. He married twice more and died at Umatilla, Morrow Co OR on 25 April 1984. (BJ,ORd,700w,706f)


        Aedna Jane East [E4c6c1d6d], daughter of John East and Elizabeth A Coffey, was born 2 December 1858 in Adair Co KY. On 6 October 1878 in Adair Co she married Thomas Richard Cundiff. Thomas was born 19 February 1852 in Adair Co, son of William Mortimer Cunduff and Martha Massie, and died 12 June 1939 in Adair Co. Aedna died 17 May 1900 in Adair Co. They had a daughter-

1.     Bettie Pearl Cunduff, b 2 Feb 1885 in Adair Co. She married Joseph B Neat in 1905. He was born 2 February 1885 in Adair Co, son of Rudolph Logan Neat and Rebecca M Goode, and died 22 September 1962 at Columbia, Adair Co. Bettie died of tuberculosis in Adair Co on 15 December 1935. and was buried in Tabernacle Church Cemetery. They had a son-

        a.     Ernest Neat, b 7 Dec 1917 in Adair Co KY. (W) (W,135d) (W,135qr)


        Agnes East [E4a3a1b], daughter of Joseph Cannon East and Martha Cockerham, was born about 1778 in Surry, NC. She married William Oliver in Surry Co on 25 November 1801. The bondsman was John Dindins. William was born in Surry Co in 1778. (W,M62, 240m)


        Agnes East [E4a2a3c], daughter of Ezekiel East and Elizabeth Worsham, was born about 1804 in northern Pittsylvania VA. She was named after her maternal grandmother Agnes Kelly. A girl of Agnes’ age was in the 1820 and 1830 census in her father’s home, and there was a 10 February 1845 will in Pittsylvania Co of Mary Stone who gave $200 to “Miss Aggy East” for services provided. There were no Stone - East marriages in VA prior to 1850. With that money, Agnes moved to Halifax Co with her brother Ezekiel, and with sister Permelia who had recently married. The 1850 Halifax Co census shows Agnes, age 48 and unmarried, living with her sister Permelia and next door to her brother Ezekiel. After Permelia’s husband died in the 1850s, Agnes remained with Permelia. Her age in 1860 was 46. Agnes probably died in the 1860s. (EL, JY,27ijp,26nq)

 

        Agnes East [E4a2a2g3], daughter of Ezekiel East and Mary A Bailiss, was born in August 1844 in Halifax Co VA. She claimed that the children she lived with were hers, but had no husband with her in 1880. Agnes was then living with her parents in Pittsylvania Co. Agnes never married, and over the years when she lived with her parents, the only man consistently around who could make her pregnant at least seven times was her father. The proof came from the marriage record of her daughter Manerva, in which Manerva's father is revealed as being Ezekiel East. In 1910 Agnes lived with her Little grandchildren, children of her daughter Manerva. This was in Pittsylvania Co in the Staunton River community, and three doors from her sons John R East and Joe Nathaniel East. In 1920 she lived with her son John at Staunton River. She died 9 December 1927; her death certificate said she was single, age 83 (should have said age 86), and died of a fractured hip resulting from a fall at home. She was buried in Pittsylvania Co. John R East was the informant for the death certificate. Her seven children were all born in VA; their ID #s will carry Agnes' not Ezekiel's-

a.     William E East, b 1864, was not found after 1880. (27s)

b.     Samuel Wesley East, b May 1866, was not at home in 1880. He married his first cousin Fannie Violet East [E4a2a3h5c], daughter of James Mitchell East and Mary Frances Worsham, on 11 October 1891 in Pittsylvania Co. In 1900 Rebecca East (Mrs Rebecca Roby) lived with him and Fannie, and was called Samuel's sister. Fannie was born in Pittsylvania Co on 9 June 1874 (was age 26 in 1900, 35 in 1910, 46 in 1920, 58 in 1930). In 1920 Samuel and Fannie lived in Halifax Co with their younger children. He apparently died there in the 1920s since Fannie was living with her son James at Staunton in Halifax Co in 1930 and was then a widow. Fannie died 16 March 1960 in Pittsylvania Co. They had six children, all born in Pittsylvania Co VA, with one dead by 1910-

        1.     William David East, b 5 Mar 1893 at Level Run, was called David W in the 1900 census, but William D afterwards. When he was an adult, he use the William David East name, and signed his name such. As an adult he lived for years in Campbell Co. He was living at Melrose in June 1917 and in 1942 at Gladys. William married Lora E _____. (M,27uv)

        2.     John Burr East, b 13 Apr 1896, married Virginia Katherine Doss in 1917. She was born at Staunton, Pittsylvania Co in July 1898, daughter of Joshua J Doss and Mary J _____. In 1942 they lived at Gladys, Campbell Co. John died at Lynchburg in August 1878. They had at least two daughters, both born in Pittsylvania Co-

                a.     Elizabeth East, b 1918 or 1919. She was caught in the 1920 census twice, and in each one her age was different; One time she was age 6/12 (born June 1919) and the other time she was age 1 4/12 (born August 1918). (27w)

                b.     Mamie May East, b 7 Oct 1920, died 3 November 1920, age 27 days in Henry Co. (28d)

Cura P East, born in 1905 and youngest son of John Mitchell East both lived with John B and Katie in 1920. John Mitchell was shown to be John B's grandfather, and Cura was shown as John B's uncle. (EL, M,27uv)

        3.     James E East, b 1900, lived in Halifax Co as a young adult, but was not married by 1930. (27v,26wf)

        4.     child East, b & d 1900s in Pittsylvania Co VA. (27v)

        5.     Josie B East, b 1906, was Josie B in 1910 and Josie O in 1920. She probably married in the 1920s. (27v,26w)

        6.     Stella M East, b 1910 after the month of April, and soon after her parents moved from Pittsylvania Co to Halifax Co. She probably married in the 1920s. (26w) (EL,27rvd,26wf)

c.     Manerva East, b Dec 1867, married James T Little on 14 December 1884 in Pittsylvania Co at her father's home. The marriage record shows that Manerva was age 17 and James was age 22 when they married; James was born in Campbell Co in 1862 and Manerva in Pittsylvania Co. Parents of the groom were shown to be R T Little and Elizabeth Little; the bride's parents were "Ezekiel East and Agnes East." This gives us solid evidence that Agnes East, who had lived for years with her father and mother, was being impregnated by her father. And Manerva was only the third of seven children from this relationship.

Manerva and James had children born between 1885 and 1909, probably at Seneca, Campbell Co. James was born in October 1861 in VA. In 1900 they lived at Seneca, but in 1910 both James and Manerva were missing and all their children were living with Manerva's mother at Staunton River in Pittsylvania Co. They had eleven children-

        1.     Elinora L Little, b Oct 1885 (25u)

        2.     child Little, b & d 1885-1900 (25u)

        3.     Lillie G Little, b Oct 1888 (25u,27v)

        4.     Elizabeth J Little, b Jun 1891 (25u)

        5.     William Daniel Little, b 21 Jan 1893 at Level Run, Pittsylvania Co VA. (M,25u, 27v)

        7.     child Little, b & d 1885-1900 (25u)

        8.     child Little, b & d 1885-1900 (25u)

        9.     Ezekiel Little, b Feb 1900, died by 1910. (25u)

        10.   Minerva Little, b 1907 (27v)

        11.   Alma V Little, b Sep 1909 (27v)

James T Little's father probably died in the 1860s because in 1870 James' mother and James were living with Isham Cox, Elizabeth's new husband, and Elizabeth had a 2 year old Cox son. R Thomas Little and Elizabeth were born in 1836 in VA. (JY,27mrsv, 25nqru)

d.     Regina East, b 1874, married her cousin Yancy B East [E4a2a2g5b]. Her line is continued under his name. (27sm)

e.     John Robert East, b 6 Nov 1878 at Hurt, Pittsylvania Co VA. He married Mary Kate Dalton in October 1898 in Pittsylvania Co at age 19; the marriage records showed his mother's name as Agnes East, but no father was shown. John and Mary Kate continued living at Staunton where he grew up. Kate was born in January 1880 in VA and died between 1913 and 1920 in Pittsylvania Co. John's mother Agnes moved in to help out. When John registered for the draft at Chatham in September 1918, he named John Wesley Odam (Adam?) as his nearest relative, thus indicating that his wife Mary Kate had died by then. They had eight children by 1913, all born in Staunton River District of Pittsylvania Co-

Her marriage with Joseph was her second (his first). They married in 1904. Joe worked for the Virginia Railroad in 1918, and in 1942 he lived at Hurt, and was still working for the railroad.

        Albert Alonzo East [E23b2], son of Thomas H East and Mary Catherine Jourdan, was born 22 March 1854 in Smith Co TN and lived in Roane Co. He married Sarah Caroline Majors on 17 March 1875 in Roane Co and they remained in Roane Co for a few years. She was born in 1856 in TN. In 1880 he was a farmer, living next to his parents. Albert and Sarah moved to Oklahoma Indian Territory in 1893 with his children, settling near Coalgate, in what would become Coal Co in 1907; this was Choctaw land. She died at Coalgate in 1898, and was buried there. In 1905 Albert married again, to Bamma Allen of Phillips, OK, and in 1906 moved his family back to Roane Co.

        Albert Campbell East [E4a2a4j10], son of John Milton East and Drucilla King, was born 24 May 1859 at Locust Grove, Adams Co OH. He married Mrs Amelia Hager in 1887 or 1888 at Dayton, OH. She was born in 1850 in OH. Albert C. East was found living in Dayton, Ohio on 17 Mar 1890. He had written an affidavit attesting to the state of his cousin's (and brother-in-law), Quincy Cincinnatus East's, health to the commissioner of pensions in Washington, D.C. This is the first piece of evidence indicating that he was still living after 1880. His sister Harriet Parker East, wife of Quincy Cincinnatus East, was living in Dayton, OH.

        In 1882, Albert's sisters, Harriett (with husband, Quincy) and Lucy Willis East, along with Joseph T. East, Quincy's brother (and Albert's cousin), were found living at Dayton. Albert did not appear in the Dayton directory until 1885, one can assume that was about the time he arrived there. Albert was in the Daytona City Directory in 1885, 1886, 1887; in 1888 through 1890 the directory also listed Albert's wife as "Mrs A C". In the 1891 directory, Albert wasn't there and his wife was then "East, Mrs A C, widow." She soon after sold their harness business to a Mr John P Thum, or else took him in as a business partner. He was listed at Albert's addreess as a harness maker in the 1892 directory. Amelia was not shown on any directory after 1893. She either died or re-married. In the meanwhile, Albert Campbell East in 1898 wrote to the US Government concerning his brother-in-law Quincy Cincionnatus' medical problems. So we know that Albert was alive in 1898. He and his wife must have separated or divorced about 1890, and she claimed to be a widow on the city directory out of embarrassment. (CA,275qr)

        Albert Winfield East [E4a3a6d4b2j], son of Thomas Bolivar East and Dora Jane Reaves, was born in 1924 at Duty, Lawrence Co AR. He left home as soon as he could be on his own because his elder siblings tried to be his father replacement - role model, and Albert wouldn't allow them to do that.

        Albert Wynne East [E4c1a2g2b], son of William Albert East and Elizabeth H Searcy, was born in 1847 in Madison Co TN (age 3 in 1860, 12 in 1860, 27 in 1880), and moved to Lavaca Co TX in the mid-1850s.

She was born at Pond Springs, Williamson Co TX on 27 April 1854, daughter of Tom Rutledge and Maria Camp, and died at home at Travis, Austin Co on 9 August 1940. She was buried in Oakwood Cemetery at Travis. Leonard East was the informant for her death certificate. This death certificate named her parents, and named her husband as Albert East; the 1900 census showed that Albert was dead by then. Eliza and Albert and Eliza lived in Lavaca Co in 1880, then Eliza and eight children lived in Burnet Co TX in 1900. She moved to Austin in 1911. In 1930 she lived with her sister Marion Rutledge (1865 TX), and was age 75 then. They had ten children by 1900, all still living, and all born in TX.

        Albert Zealous East [E19a2a8d], son of Richard Zealous East and Annie O _____, was born 24 June 1900 at Columbus, Muskogee Co GA. For a short while, Albert lived at St Bernard, OH, which was (then) about 3 miles west of Cincinnati, and he worked for a canning factory at Cincinnati. He registered for the draft at St Bernard in September 1918 and gave his full name, and also the full name and address of his father (2959 Riverside Dr, Atlanta, GA). He married Mary _____ about 1920 and they first lived in Atlanta. Mary was born in GA in 1900. She was an office worker while Albert was a grocer. (M,273v,271w)


        Albis H East [E4a3b1d2], probably a grandson of Asa East Sr and Mary _____ of Stokes Co NC, married Polly Morris in Lincoln Co MO on 2 September 1841, so he was probably born about 1820 (in Stokes Co NC? or in KY?). Polly was born 10 September 1824, daughter of Jonah Morris and Jane Pack. Polly died 27 March 1884. Albis apparently died in the 1840s in Lincoln Co. Polly and Albis had a son who was living with his Morris grandparents in Lincoln Co in 1850. He was-

a.     Thomas S East, b 1843 in Lincoln Co MO. (46n) (46mnc)


        Alex East Jr [E1b4h2c5], son of Alexander Z East and Ann Hodge, was born about 1927. (CE,9f)


        Alexander East [E4c6c3j], son of Cornelius East and Mary Hannah, was born 3 December 1809 in Lincoln Co KY. He was one of five sons under age 10 in 1810. In the 1820s Alexander moved with his brothers to Lawrence Co IN, and stayed there for much of the remainder of his life. He lived next to Bailey East in 1830 with John East nearby, and had his own home, but with no wife nor children. In 1840 in Lawrence Co he was on census page 236; brother John was on page 234 and Hughes East (Isaac? Constantine?) was on page 187. Alex married Catherine A Ramsey in Lawrence Co on 16 December 1833, and had two daughters and a son by 1840. Catherine was born in KY on 10 February 1816, and was a daughter of John Pearce Ramsey and Jane McConnell, the only Ramsey family in Lawrence Co in 1820; John Ramsey did have a daughter under age 10 in 1820; this could easily be Catherine. Also, in the 1900 and 1910 census record, a “cousin” James H Ramsey, born in IN in December 1844, was living with Alex’s son Joseph Howard East. In 1850 thru 1880 Alex and his family lived in Pleasant Run Twp. He died there on 26 July 188_ (1886?). After Alex died, Catherine lived with her son Joseph ar Pleasant Run, Lawrence Co. In 1900, Catherine reported that she had seven children, but only two were still living. Alex’s seven children were born in Pleasant Run Twp, Lawrence Co IN-

1.     Sarah Ann East, b abt 1835

2.     John B East, b 17 Nov 1837

3.     dau East, b 1839

4.     Susan A East, b 1844

5.     George William East, b 1 Sep 1847

6.     Joseph Howard East, b 8 Jan 1850

7.     Marshal A East, b 5 Jul 1854

In 1870 Josephine East, daughter of John East [E4c6c5f6], was living with Alexander and Catherine. Josephine’s mother (and siblings?) had recently died, so Josephine moved in with Catherine where she could have a mother’s care.

        The Hughs East on census page 187 in 1840 was probably the Hughes East who was eldest son of John H East [E4c3b4]. Hughs (in this 1840 census) was born in the 1801-1810 years; his wife was born 1811-1820. That closely matches the known information we have on John H East’s son. Hughs in the 1840 census had two boys age 5-9, one girl 5-9, and one boy under age 5. But also in that home was an older male born 1811-1820, and two females age 10-14, one unidentified. Probably this Hughs had been married before his marriage to the wife in the 1840 census, and the eldest son and the unidentified elder girl were from the first marriage. (MF,W,124hi,126jmknqrsu)


        Alexander East [E4c6c5d11], son of Joseph East and Mrs Nancy Rodgers, was born in 1847 in Adair Co KY. (135n)

        Alexander Hamilton East [E1f8], son of William East and Sarah Webb, was born about 1815 in Madison Co AL. He married Martha Jane Gordon in Madison Co on 22 October 1846. She was born 6 April 1819, daughter of James Gordon and Sarah Townsend. Martha Jane died at home in Madison Co on 16 September 1847, probably at the birth of her daughter. She was buried in the East family Cemetery where Alexander's parents were buried. In 1850 Alexander was then living alone in civil district 36 in Madison Co, without his new daughter in his home.

        Sometime after the Civil War and after 12 December 1853 when he was appointed to be the legal guardian of the orphaned sons of his sister Priscilla, Alexander moved to Jefferson Co AR with his daughter and possibly Priscilla's son George. Alexander's second wife is unknown; they were apparently married in AR and she died at the birth of her daughter on or soon after 5 September 1855. In 1860 he was living in Jefferson Co at Plum Bayou with a John W Flynn; both were farmers. Alexander died in July 1876 at his home on Dudley Lake in Phillips Co AR, and was buried in Jefferson Co.

In two consecutive census records, his name was given as Alford, not Alfred, but an obit of his brother Amaziah named a brother "Alfred East of Camden." The local newspaper had a 3 February 1916 obit of a Mrs Clemmie East, age 18, who died at Prescott of tuberculosis, and who was buried in De Ann Cemetery.

He was listed in 1900 as son Leonard V, and Leon in 1910. He also often used the nickname Lonnie. Alonzo worked for Southern Railroad in the Bridge & Building department, and lived at Glen Alice (4 miles southwest of Rockwood) in June 1917. He married twice. He was "Lonnie East" when he married Nora B Carney in Rhea Co on 13 August 1916; J H Bales helped Lonnie provide the marriage bond. Nora was born in Rhea Co TN in 1896, daughter of James Thomas Carney and Amanda Roberts. They at first lived in TN, then in 1920 were found at Battle Creek, MI where he worked as a painter. His younger brother James also lived with him and Nora at Battle Creek then. Lonnie and Nora moved to Anderson Co TN about 1921 and in 1930 he worked in a coal mine. His second wife was Nancy J Owens. She and "Alonzo V East" married in Anderson Co on 4 October 1947. She was born 11 July 1907, and died at Oliver Springs, Morgan Co TN in September 1982.

James Thomas Carney and Amanda Roberts were married in Rhea Co on 7 July 1895.

The Bales family were the maternal relatives of the wife of Edward H East. (M,Z,19uv,123m,1031m)


        Alonzo W East [E23a], son of John T East and Sarah _____ of VA, was born in 1829 in TN (age under 5 in 1830, pg 41A; age 5-9 in 1840 in the Samuel Day home, page 76A; age 20 in 1850; age 36 in 1860). In 1850 he was living with the Benjamin Bentley family in Bledsoe Co, but was living in Roane Co in 1860 to 1880 with his wife Emiline C Jourdan and their children. Alonzo was living in Roane Co when he married (Roane Co is east of Bledsoe Co). He was a farmer and was a Confederate soldier from Roane Co. Alonzo and Emiline married in Bledsoe Co TN on 2 January 1850. John Jourdan, age in the 80s, was only Jourdan family in Bledsoe Co in 1840. Emeline was born in NC in 1833 (age 26 in 1860, age 35 in 1870), daughter of Samuel H Jordan and Elizabeth Greene Gamble. Samuel Jourdan lived in Warren Co in 1840 (west of Bledsoe Co), and had two daughters born between 1826 and 1830. So perhaps the marriage was in Bledsoe Co because it was mid-way between Roane and Warren Counties, and because Samuel Jourdan's elderly father lived in Bledsoe Co and was too old to travel far to attend his granddaughter's marriage. By 1880 Alonzo and Emiline had 13 children-

1.     Sarah E East, b 1851

2.     Samuel H East, b 1852

        Anderson R East [E13a1k], son of James East and Martha Clarkson of north-central VA, was born in Amherst Co VA 1 July 1803 (age 20s in 1830, 30s in 1840, 47 in 1850, 56 in 1860, 67 in 1870), was found living in Liberty Twp, Delaware Co IN in 1850 with his family. He had married Mary A Goings in Montgomery Co VA on 31 October 1829. She was born in VA on 31 July 1809, daughter of David Goings (1783-1840) and Susannah Williams (1783-1855). All but one Goings family in 1830 were located in the extreme northeast portion of present day WV and in the north center of VA. So for Anderson and Mary to have married in Montgomery Co, they probably traveled quite a distance away from her home.

        From the birth places of his children, Anderson and his family moved from VA to OH about 1831, then to IN about 1834. Mary died on 23 July 1877 and was buried in Truitt Cemetery at Selma, Delaware Co. Her gravestone says she was "Aged 68Y. 5M &24D." Anderson then lived with his youngest son Isaac N East. Anderson's brother Morton C East also lived with Isaac in 1880. Anderson died on 28 November 1880 and was also buried in Truitt Cemetery. His gravestone said he was "Aged 77Y. 4MO & 27D." His brother probably died soon after 1880. Anderson and Mary had at least twelve children-

        Anderson Redmond "Andrew" East [E13a1k10], son of Anderson R East and Mary A Goings, was born 21 March 1847 in Liberty Twp, Delaware Co IN. He married Mary Catherine Moore about 1868 and in 1870 they lived in Liberty Twp, Delaware Co. She was born in VA in 1848. Anderson died on 13 March 1872 and was buried in Truitt Cemetery at Selma, Delaware Co; his gravestone says "Andrew R. East 3/13/1872, 25y 13d". Catherine then married Mathias A DeVoss in Delaware Co on 25 July 1877 and lived at Greene in Randolph Co in 1880. Mathias was born in January 1846 in OH. Her two East children were also living with them in 1880. In 1900 Mathias lived at Richland, Jay Co IN, was single, and was a stock dealer. Anderson and Catherine had three children-

        Andrew Jackson East [E4a2a3g], son of Thomas East and Mildred Timberlake, was born in Pittsylvania Co VA in 1813. See Jackson East [E4a2a3g].


        Andrew Jackson East [E4c3a3b7], son of Joseph Isham East and Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, was born in 1815 in TN. He was found in Smith Co in 1840, and in Macon Co in 1850 (Macon Co was made from Smith Co in 1842). He was married to Mary Cook about 1837 (or 1840 if she was a second wife). Mary was born in TN about 1818. In 1850 they lived next door to his brother Patterson East. About 1856 or 1857 Elizabeth and Andy moved to Cedar Creek Twp, Wayne Co MO, and had their last child, Samuel, born about 1858. Apparently Mary died at Samuel's birth or soon after; she was not in the 1860 census. Andrew and his children, unless the daughters had married in the 1860s, were not found afterwards. By 1850 they had seven children, and three more by 1858-

a.     James M East, b 1838 Smith Co TN, was not living with his father in Wayne Co MO in 1860, nor in Macon Co TN. (5k,4n,138q)

b.     Elizabeth East, b 1840 Smith Co TN. (5k,4n,138q)

c.     Addison / Anderson East, b 1841 Smith Co TN, may have been the Adison A East who married Sallie J Guill in Wilson Co TN on 14 Mar 1864 This son was shown as Anderson in Wayne Co MO in 1860, but as Addison in Macon Co TN in 1850. (M12,5k,4n,138q)

d.     Ezekiel East, b 1843 Macon Co TN. (4n,138q)

e.     Agatha / Agnes "Aggy" East, b 1845 Macon Co TN. (4n,138q)

f.     Joseph East, b 1846 Macon Co TN, lived in Madison Co MO and married Mary C _____ about 1868. She was born in MO in 1844. Probably Joseph died in the 1890s for "Mary S East" was found living in Twelvemile Twp in 1900, a widow, and with an eleven year old daughter in her home. This Mary was born in MO in February 1846; she also reported to the census taker that she had only one child who was still living in 1900. If the 1900 Mary was Joseph's widow, then he had two daughters, not one-

        1.     Susan East, b 1869 at Twelvemile Twp, Madison Co MO. She probably died in the 1870s since she wasn't living with her parents in 1880. (139rs)

        2.     Lucy East, b Feb 1889 in MO (139u) (4n,138q,139rsu)

j.      Samuel East, b 1858 Wayne Co MO (138q)

Ms Einstein East, age 26 and born in GA, was living in the Mrs Eliza Bennet (age 47 and born in NC) family in 1870. Einstein did not have a husband with her, and had two children then: Mary E "Mollie" East, born 1865 at Chester, Randolph Co IL, and Amanda J East, born 1869 in MO. Since Andrew Jackson was the only East family in Wayne Co MO in 1860, Ms Einstein may be closely connected. (MV,K,5k,4n,138q)


        Andrew M East [E14d1b], son of Henry Tate East and Elizabeth Coulter, was born 14 July 1815 in TN and grew up in Madison Co IL. He was married on 14 July 1836 in Perry Co and then lived in Washington Co IL, next door to his father. Andrew's wife was Jemina Maxwell, born in Bedford Co TN 29 May 1818, daughter of Solomon Maxwell. Andrew's wife's name was repeated many times on gravestones of her children, and is spelled with the N. Andrew and Jemina both died in 1852 of cholera: Andrew on 28 July in Washington Co and Jemina on 12 December at Coulterville, Randolph Co. They had three children by 1840, and five more born by 1850-

        Andrew Norman East [E14d1b3c], son of Solomon Maxwell East and Sarah Jemina Miller, was born 24 April 1868 in Randolph Co IL. He married Eloise Leiper on 27 November 1889 at Coulterville, Randolph Co IL. She was born 12 June 1864 in Randolph Co, daughter of Dr Archibald K Leiper and Martha Rosborough, and died 2 January 1905. Andrew then married Rosalie V _____ about 1906. Rosalie was born in MO 11 June 1884 and died in August 1971 at St Louis, MO. They lived at Chicago in 1910 where he was a sales manager for a coal company, and divorced by 1920. In the 1920s Andrew was the head of the Western Weights Inspection Bureau, and had a vineyard in MI. Rosalie was then living with her aunt and uncle Kidder at St Louis, MO. Her daughter also was with her then. Andrew married his third wife Celestia Jordon about 1911. She was born in 1888. Andrew died 18 March 1931 at Shreveport, LA. He had five children, all born in IL-

f.     Alex East, b 27 Aug 1916 in Wayne Co, died "3 to 5 days later" according to his death certificate. This death certificate appears to have been filled in by someone with no memory.

        Angeline Cass East [E19a3m], daughter of Benjamin East and Margaret Gregg, was born 9 April 1851 in Talladega Co AL (age 28 in 1880, 48 in 1900). She married Harvey Lee Willingham in 1873 in Randolph Co and lived there for the first few years of their marriage. He was born in GA in 1826. Angeline died 25 April 1906 at Delta and was buried in Delta Cemetery, Clay Co. Harvey was also buried in Delta Cemetery. They had three sons-

1.     Henry Cortez Willingham, b 29 Aug 1874

2.     Harvey Lee Willingham, b 9 May 1880

3.     Zeal Mabrie Willingham, b 24 Jan 1885 (CS,47qs, 257u)


        Ann East [E19a6], probably a daughter of Stephen East and Theresa Ray, was born about 1809 in Spartanburg Co SC, and grew up in GA. She married Thomas Bearden in Hall Co GA on 6 May 1827. Of the elder East men in GA in the pre-1830s, only Stephen was of age to be Ann's father, and if Ann was a young woman when she married Mr Bearden, she then fits the age (born 1805 to 1810) of the daughter shown in the Jackson Co GA 1820 census in Stephen's home. In 1830 there were only two Bearden men who might be her husband, and both were living in SC; there were no potential Thomas Bearden men in GA, AL nor in TN. But there was T Bearden, living with S Elder; both had wives and one was Ann's age. There were young children in their home, but it is unknown who the parents were. The second possible Thomas Bearen was living in the Abbeville Co of SC. This Thomas Bearden and his wife were of the same age as Stephen's daughter, and this family had a boy under the age of 5. In 1840 the Thomas Bearden family in Gilmer Co GA fits the age group Ann would be in. Ditto for the Thomas Bearden family in Jones Co GA. The Tomas Bearden in The Gilmer Co would be the likely person, since one of Ann's uncles was also born in Gilmer Co. In 1850 there were no obvious Bearden families who we would recognize as children of Ann in any state. (M39,XX,247i, 250m,269j, 284j)


        Ann East [E14a4b], daughter of Silas East and Harriet Canty Houze, was born between 1826 and 1830 in Clarke Co GA. (W,454k)


        Ann East [E4a2a7a3], daughter of Thomas East and Elizabeth West, was born in 1833 in Pittsylvania Co VA. (L,25k,27n)


        Ann Caroline East [E1b12e], daughter of Barzley Graves East and Nancy Jones, was born 2 May 1845 at Savannah, TN, and died prior to June 1850. She was apparently the only sibling in her family who was born in Hardin Co; all the rest were born in Giles Co or in McNairy Co. (B,L,EP,13n)


        Ann D East [E4a2a4h3], daughter of Thomas East and Priscilla McCracken, was born 7 October 1838 at Locust Grove, Adams Co OH. She married Jefferson Lynn Davis in Montgomery Co IL on 25 March 1857. He was born about 1832 in PA, and was a plasterer. In 1870 they lived at Cerro Gordo, Piatt Co IL, next door to Stillman Barber.. He died in the 1870s, probably at Cerro Gordo, and in 1880 Ann lived at St Louis, MO. Ann died 7 May 1865 at Duluth, MN. She had five children, all in IL-

a.     child Davis, b 18 Mar 1858, died as an infant. (CA)

b.     Effie Davis, b 1861 (277r)

c.     Lillian Davis, b 1863, was a school teacher in 1880. She married Charles Black. He was born in 1863 in TN. (CA,277r,175s)

d.     Grace Davis, b 1865 (277r,175s)

e.     Tennie Davis, b 1871 (175s) (CA,M38,275kn,277r, 175s)


        Ann Eliza East [E4a3b1d3], born in 1822 in KY, was probably a granddaughter of Asa East Sr and Mary _____ of Stokes Co NC. She married James R Cox in Lincoln Co MO on 5 October 1843. Of the four elder East men (Asa, Joseph, Larkin, and Thomas), only Thomas had a daughter of age to marry James Cox in 1843, and Eliza's birth date of 1822 (per 1850, 1870, and 1880 censuses) in KY, does fit the 5-to-9 age of Thomas' daughter shown in 1830, but that daughter was Frances, who was still living with Thomas in 1850. Thomas had two daughters in 1830 who were under age 5, so neither of them could be Ann; in addition, those two younger daughters were Elizabeth and an unknown daughter of about the same age. Furthermore it would be unlikely that Thomas would name two daughters with the name Elizabeth and Eliza. Hence, Ann must be another daughter of a yet unknown East man who produced children born in the 1818-1831 years who lived in Lincoln Co, and then who probably died in the 1830s.

        Ann's husband James was born in MO in 1825. In 1850 they were living next door to Joseph East [E4a3b1g], and in 1860 they were still in that neighborhood near Joseph. James died in the 1860s in Bedford Twp, Lincoln Co because in 1870 Eliza was shown without a husband living in Bedford Twp, close to Joseph East, and with five of her children. They had eight children, all born in Lincoln Co-

She married William Enoch Jones on 4 May 1887 at Auburn, Sebastian Co. The bride's age at the time was 16, and the groom was age 17. After their marriage, William became a medical doctor; he attended Medical School of the University of Ark, from which he was graduated in 1896. He first practiced at Charleston, Franklin Co, but moved to Poteau, OK in 1897, where he became widely known as a physician & surgeon. He was medical examiner for a US government board from 1904 to 1907 and was division surgeon for the Kansas City Southern railroad. He joined the army as a lieutenant in the Medical Corps in 1918 and served on the Medical Examining Board at Camp Forest, GA, until a month after the armistice. He established his residence in Little Rock in that year. William was born at Jasper, Newton Co AR on 6 July 1869. He died 25 December 1931 at Little Rock; Ann died 26 February 1960 at Little Rock.

        Anna Laura East [E1b4b1b], daughter of John Harston East and Charlotte Frances Montague, was born 21 February 1866 at Savannah, TN and grew up there. On 30 August 1885 at Savannah Annie married her late aunt Emily East's husband Jeremiah Cherry Young (nephew of Harriet Knight Young, Annie's grandmother and wife of Reuben East [E1b4b]). He was therefore Annie's first cousin once removed. Jeremiah was born 20 December 1846 at Columbia, TN, son of Amaziah Young and Mary Elizabeth Cherry. He moved to nearby Williamsport when he was a boy, then to Collierville as a young man with his parents. Jerry was a land speculator with his brother James Thomas Young, and in his younger days a farmer. Jerry and Anna lived at Savannah until he died on 23 December 1899; he was buried in the Savannah Cemetery two days later. Since most of Annie's closer East relatives had recently moved west to AR and few remained at Savannah, Annie, her three young children, and her two step-sons (who were also Annie's double cousins; see Emily East [E1b4b7]) moved to Tyronza, AR soon after 1900. They lived at Tyronza for years, being supported largely by her husband's eldest child Van Young. About 1913 at Sherman, TX Annie married Louis Napoleon Sanders and apparently lived at Sherman for a while. Louis had been married twice before; the second marriage being with Annie's cousin Worda Gaines East [E1b12d5]. Lewis was born 17 January 1863 in AL, and died 19 January 1938 at Tyronza. Annie died at Jonesboro, AR on her birthday in 1928 and is buried in Jonesboro; Lewis is buried in the Tyronza Cemetery. Annie had three children (she and Louis Sanders had none during their marriage)-

2.     Maude Latane Young, b 12 Sep 1891

3.     Charlotte Fay Young, b 26 Sep 1896

Worda Gaines East's grandfather was Barzley Graves East; Annie's father was a grandson of Barzley's brother John. This made Worda and Annie's father second cousins. Read the story following Reuben East, Annie's grandfather. (M77,FE,JY, LY,UR, 10nqm,11q,14r, 32u, 9rsmcu, 20stz, 31uvc, 33d)

        Arabella R "Bell" East [E19a3e10], daughter of Zealous Ray East and Abrilla Waits, was born 9 July 1874 in Randolph Co AL and died 13 May 1958. She married John H Rice about 1894. He was a son of John Rice and Amzie Caroline Key. John was born 4 September 1869 in AL and died 5 February 1963. They lived in Randolph Co in 1900 thru 1920 (1920 at Halpins, Pct 13, family 163), and were in Clay Co in 1930. Arabella was buried in Liberty Church of Christ Cemetery, Randolph Co, as was John. They had seven children, all born in Randolph Co-

a.     Amzie E Rice (dau), b Aug 1897, was not in her parents' home in 1920. (47uv)

b.     Russell J Rice, b Aug 1899, was age 19 in 1920; the 1900 census was taken on June 14, prior to August, and Russell was listed as "unnamed son" then. Russell was unnamed for over a year after his birth. In 1910 he was age 9; in 1920 he was age 19 and lived next door to his parents and was by then recently married to Yala _____. She was born in AL in 1901 (age 18). What happened to Yala is unknown since Russell was again single in 1930 and living with his parents in Clay Co. There is a SS record of a Russell Rice, born 20 August 1899, who died in May 1967 at Augusta, GA. This is probably the son of John and Arabella. (Z,47vw,257f)

g.     Daisy May Rice, b 1914 (47w,257f)

In John's home in 1900 was Albert R Craven, born in January 1898 in AL of a GA born father and AL born mother. He was listed as John H Rice's son. Since daughter Amzy was born in August 1897, it is highly unlikely that six months later Arabella was the mother of Albert. Probably Albert belonged to the neighbors, John and Eliza Craven; the census taker drew a line from Albert to John Craven, as if indicating that Albert belonged in the other family. (CS,47suv,257f)

Armstrong's sister Mary L lived with them in 1910; she was a widow, and all her children had left the area. And also in 1910, cousin Lola E Nye lived with them.

There is a death record in Wexford Co for a George Edward East who died 7 September 1877. If Armstrong had a son born in the early 1870s, this could be him. (W,72nqrdsv, 950ud)


        Armstrong Bailey East [E19c5], son of Jesse East and Micky East, was born in 1836 in Randolph Co AL (age under 5 in 1840, age 14 in 1850 GA; age 28 in 1860 AL, age 35 in 1870 GA, age 46 in 1880 GA). He lived next door to his parents in 1860 in Fulton Co GA (three counties east of Cleburne Co AL), and had married Sarah JoAnn Johns in 1850. She was born in GA in 1832. (age 28 in 1860 GA, 25 in 1870 GA, age 32 in 1880 GA). They lived in Marshall Co AL in 1870 and had five children by then, all born in Fulton Co GA. In 1880 they lived at Fish Creek, Polk Co GA (the northwest part of the state, next to northeast AL), and only had two children in their home at that time.

        Armstrong always lived near his parents while they were alive, and in 1870 the parents had taken in some of Armstrong's children. By 1880, most children had either grown and left home, or had died. Armstrong married a second time, to Neoma"Oma" McCoy on 17 July 1883 in Lamar Co AL. She was born in AL in December 1867; her father was born in England, and her mother in AL. She was almost age 16 when she married 47 year old Armstrong. He died by 1893 because Oma had married Charles Vinson about 1893 and they lived at Carbon Hill, Walker Co AL in 1900. From the 1860 to 1880 census records, and then the newest info from source TX, we know that Armstrong's many children were-

b.     William East, b 1854, age 16 in 1870 & born in GA. He was living with his East grandparents in Jackson Co in 1870. He may have died in the 1870s since there was a new son named William in Armstrong's home in 1880. (271q, 212r)

When his father died and his mother remarried, they lived at Carbon Hill, Walker Co AL in 1900. Walter married Zora Belle Mason (picture) in 1902. She was born in 1887 in AL.

In 1910 they lived in Roane Co where Arthur was a coal miner, but in September 1918 were living close to his brother Charles at Glencoe, Etowah Co AL. He worked in Charles' stone quarry. Arthur and Annie had a son by 1910, then four more children by 1920-

        Asa East [E4c3b2], son of Thomas East Sr and Mary _____ of Surry Co and Stokes Co NC, was born in 1775 in Surry Co, in the part of the county which became Stokes Co in 1789, and lived most of his life in Stokes Co. When Asa's children started moving to KY and to MO in the 1820s, Asa went with them. In 1821 in Stokes Co he transferred a deed to Clisby Roberson, so went to KY afterwards He and his wife were found in Simpson Co KY in 1830, living close to his son Larkin. The 1830 KY census shows Asa East and his wife both aged in their 50s. Also in his home in Simpson Co KY in 1830 was a son, born in the 1801-1810 years. Asa Sr married Mary _____ in the early to mid 1790s. She was born in the mid-1770s in Stokes Co, and family tradition claims she was a Cherokee Indian. Some of her descendants also made that claim to the US Government for Indian compensation. In Stokes Co in 1810 there was no Asa East listed. But since we know he was married by the mid-1790s and had children by 1810, he must either have been in another county in 1810, or been living with his parents or with an elder brother, or was just dodging the census taker so that no one would know he married an Indian. In Asa's home in Stokes Co NC in 1820 there were two males age 10 to 15 (Asa Jr and Joseph), one male age 16 to 17 (unknown son), two males age 16 to 25 (Thomas and Larkin), one male age 45 or older (Asa Sr), two females age 16 to 25 (Sarah and a sister), one female age 45 or older (Asa's wife Mary), and four in the family were engaged in farming.

        Where Asa died is not known; it would likely have been in either Simpson Co KY in the 1830s, or in Lincoln Co MO in the 1840s. His son Asa Jr had moved to Lincoln Co MO by 1830, and in 1840 sons Asa Jr and Thomas were in Lincoln Co; in both of their homes in 1840 there was no one of age to be parents. There was an Asa East in Pike Co OH in 1840, but he was born in the 1800s and was Asa East [E4a2a3b], born in VA. So the conclusion is that Asa and probably Mary died in Simpson Co KY in the 1830s. They had at least seven children, all born in Stokes Co NC-

a.     Thomas East, b 1794

b.     Sarah East, b 22 Jul 1796

c.     Larkin East, b 1798

d.     dau East, b abt 1800 (76i)

e.     Heinrich Thomas East, b 1803-1804 (Asia East?, of Williamson Co IL and Lincoln Co MO in 1830 and 1840?) (76eh,46j,183k)

f.     Asa East, b 1808

g.     Joseph East, b 1809

h.     Charity East, b 1810

Also living in Stokes Co in 1820 was John East. In his home were two sons under age 10, two daughters under age 10, a wife aged 16 to 25, and John, age 26 to 44. There was also a Thomas East, making three East men. In Thomas's home were Thomas, over age 45, one male age under 10, one male age 10 to 15, one male age 16 or 17, one male age 16 to 25, two females age under 10, two females age 10 to 15, one female age 16 to 25, and one female age 26 to 44.

In 1800 in Stokes Co were five East families: Asa, Isham, Joseph, Thomas Sr, and Thomas Jr. Asa was born between 1756 and 1774, as was his wife, and they had three children under age 10. Isham was Asa's age or a bit older; children in his house were young adults down to under age 10, and there were six to eight children. Joseph East was older, born 1755 or before, as was his wife. Thomas Sr was Joseph's age, born 1755 or before, as was his wife. Thomas Jr was a young adult, as was his wife, and married within the prior 10 years; they had one son under age 10.

There was another East family in early Stokes Co NC, or close kin to this Asa East family. That was Ursula East [E4a3a4], daughter of William East and Mary Cannon, and who married William Venable and lived in Stokes Co for many years. Ursula and William had a son Pleasant Venable [E4a3a4a], born about 1780; he provided the marriage bond for Hughes East and Rosanna Hodge in Surry Co in 1827. Hughes East [E4c3b4a], son of John H East and Mary Ann Burch, was born in 1802 in Surry Co. He must have been a close cousin and friend to Pleasant Venable. (SC, 76aehiy,240m,1043p)

See the 1799 NC & VA Counties Map of the area and census pages pertaining to Asa East and related families.


        Asa East [E4a2a3b], son of Thomas East and Mildred Timberlake, was born 30 June 1803 in Pittsylvania Co VA. He consistently gave an age indicating that he was born in the 1801-1810 years in the 1820 to 1840 censuses. He and his father posted a $150 marriage bond on 13 September 1826 for Asa to marry Elizabeth "Betsey" Templeton; they married on 14 September 1826 in Pittsylvania Co. The parents of the bride and groom gave written consent for their marriage: Thomas East and Martin Templeton signed this letter of consent. For about thirteen years they lived in Pittsylvania Co. Elizabeth was born 9 November 1806 in VA. It appears that a brother and sister, or an older sibling plus spouse lived with Asa in 1830. In the late 1830s they moved west to Pike Co OH. Asa died 6 November 1846 "Aged 43 years 4 mo. 7 dys," probably in neighboring Brown Co since he was buried there in Old Ripley Cemetery. Elizabeth was living in Adam Co without a husband in 1850, and with three of her children; her daughter Mary Ann lived in Brown Co in 1850 with her husband. In the summer of 1860 Elizabeth was living with her daughter Mary Ann (Mrs Isaac Rhodes) in Washington Twp, Green Co IA. Elizabeth died there on 15 November 1869. Asa and Elizabeth had five children, all born in Pittsylvania Co VA-

1.     Mary Ann East, b 1 Aug 1827

3.     Frances East, b abt 1832

4.     Asa Martin East, b abt 1836

        Asa East [E4c3b2f], son of Asa East and Mary _____ of Stokes Co NC, was born in Stokes Co in 1808, but by the late 1820s was living in IL, possibly Williamson Co since that was the only county in IL which had anyone with a similar name in the 1840 census, and in 1830, 1850, and in 1860 was living in Lincoln Co MO. Linoln Co MO is at the east edge of MO with IL as its eastern border. In Lincoln Co his close neighbors were his brothers Larkin East, Joseph East, and Thomas East from NC. Asa married Dr Charity _____ about 1827, probably in IL since their older children were born in IL. Charity was born in 1807 in KY (age 59 in 1860). Asa was called Asia in the Lincoln Co 1830 census and was living near his brother Thomas East (was this the missing brother?); the next door neighbor was Shade Woodson. Asia was in Williamson Co IL in 1840 (northeast IL, southwest of Chicago), with the same name. In 1850 and 1860 he was in Lincoln Co MO, and now using the simpler spelling of Asa for his given name. He died in the 1860s, and his widow Charity then moved in with her nephew Henry Hiler [E4a3b1b2]. Charity died 14 August 1888 in Lincoln Co. Asa and Charity had six known children; 1840 census indicates there were more-

1.     son East, b 1826-1830 (46j)

2.     Mary East, b 1828

3.     Thomas East, b 1834

4.     Edward East, b 1836

5.     Anna Louisa East, b 1840

6.     Sarah M East, b 1845

Six Meyer grandchildren lived with Asa and Charity in 1860: Abigail, age 9; Josiah, age 7; Annie, age 5; Sarah, age 4; Clarissa J, age 3; and Thomas Meyer, age 10/12.

Lincoln Co MO is next to the western border of IL (M92,76h,165j, 46jnqd)


        Asa East [E4c3b4g], son of John H East and Mary Ann Burch, was born 16 October 1815 in Surry Co NC (age 32 in 1850). His parents moved to IN when he was a boy, and he grew up there in Lawrence and Monroe Counties. He was not listed in his parents' home in 1830, but by then was a teenager and was therefore likely working nearby on an older sibling's farm (probably his eldest brother Hughes). Asa married Gensey May about in 1841 in IN. She was born 3 April 1822 at Indian Creek, Monroe Co, and died 12 August 1896. Asa died by 1870 and Gensey was found at Clear Creek, Monroe Co with daughters Elizabeth and Susan, and grandsons James and George East.

The Texas Declaration of Independence was signed on 2 March 1836 and an interim government was formed for the newly created Republic of Texas. On 21 April 1836, Texans under Sam Houston, routed the Mexican forces of Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto. Thus, independence was won. On 29 December 1845 U S President James Polk followed through on a campaign promise, and signed legislation making Texas the 28th state of the United States. So Augustus East was born in the foreign country of the Republic Of Texas. (W,104nqr,105u)


        Austin Odie East [E19a3e4c], son of George Zealous East and Sarah Knight, was born 10 January 1891 at Delta in Clay Co AL. He married Zella Almead Fuller when she was not quite age 15 on 14 July 1912. Austin died 12 August 1973 at Ashland in Clay Co and was buried in Sardis Cemetery, Clay Co. Zella was born in AL on 16 January 1898 in Clay Co, daughter of George Allen Fuller and Lala Lona Luella Eslaven Elizabeth Elizavan "Ella" Bean (seven actual names), and died at Ashland on 30 June 1967. After their son O C died, the family moved to Clay Co in 1927 and settled near Gibsonville. In 1920 Austin and Zella lived at Fox Creek in Clay Co just a few doors from his sister Weda. He and Zella had six children, all but the youngest born in Randolph Co -

        Bailey East [E4c6c3g3], son of John Jehu East and Sarah Hawkins of Greene Co MO, born 17 February 1826 in Lawrence Co IN. He was listed on the 1861, 1863, and 1868 Polk Co MO tax assessor's roll. He married Selena W McSwain in Polk Co on 5 December 1850, and bought 80 acres from the Federal Government on 5 December 1850 in Polk Co. In September 1863 he owned 80 acres in Section 20, Twp 30, Range 22, and Selena, in her own name, owned 80 acres in Section 17, Twp 33, Range 22; in September 1868 Bailey owned the land plus 3 horses, 6 cattle,10 sheep, and 10 hogs. He died 3 September 1888. His obit from the Bolivar Free Press said "Bailey East, who died September 3, 1888 was Deacon in the Mt. Olive Baptist church in Polk county, Missouri, which office he held with obedience and simplicity. He was born February 17, 1826, professed a hope in Christ when quite young. His companion preceded him a little over two years ago." Selina was born 8 January 1824 in KY, apparently an older daughter of Thomas McSwain and Selena W Hall. See Melinda East [E4c6c3g11], Bailey's sister. They had two daughters by 1870-

1.     Susan E East, b 1852

2.     Cordelia Jane East, b 1854 (42qr)

Polk and Greene Counties are next to each other. In 1850 Bailey lived next door to Sidney East, born 1824 in IN. In 1870 in Polk Co in Bailey's home was a boy James Foster, age 11, and born in MO. This boy was not shown in the home of Bailey's brother-in-law Tandy Foster, husband of his sister Elizabeth Jane East, in 1860. If he were a son, he would have been age 1 then. Also in Bailey's home in 1860 was another boy: William Patterson, age 9. (42Nztmqrs) (M95,JG,MF,L, 124im,41n,42Nztmnqrs)


        Bailey East [E4c6c3k], son of Cornelius East and Mary Hannah, was born in Lincoln Co KY in 1810. He married Mary _____ (Berry?) on 20 November 1830 (there was also a Lincoln Co KY marriage between Bailey East and Mary Berry on 21 September 1846, but that's probably in error, the date being taken from the next marriage in the record). Bailey lived alone in his own home in Lawrence Co IN in 1830, next door to his brother Alexander East. So his marriage to Mary was probably in Lawrence Co IN. Mary was also born in KY, in 1812. In 1840 they lived in Monroe Co, the neighboring county to the north. They lived in Lawrence and Monroe Counties since their marriage. In 1850 and 1860 they lived in Pleasant Run Twp, Lawrence Co close to his brother Alex. Bailey was a brick mason. They had four children by 1840, at least nine children by 1860, all born in Lawrence Co or Monroe Co IN-

        Barney East [E4c6c3a6d9], son of Owen East and Lucy L Galey, was born 20 February 1899 in Madison Co KY. He lived at Lancaster, Garrard Co in September 1918, and died in Garrard Co on 26 July 1984. Barney was buried in Lancaster Cemetery. He was not married by 1920 and was still living at home. (M,362ud,359vwc)


        Baron East [E4c6c5g3d], son of James L East and Amanda J Lovall, was born in 1871 in Pleasant Run Twp, Lawrence Co IN. He was called Bona by the census takers in 1910 and 1920, and Bonard in 1930. Hence, his correct name must have been Bonaparte East. See Bonaparte East [E4c6c5g3d].


        Barzley Graves East [E1b12d2], son of John Edwin East and Mary A East [E1b4b4], was born 1 October 1869 at Savannah, TN. He was a lad when his family moved to MS and then to Earle, AR. Barzley was named after his father's father, and the middle name was a family name in his mother's ancestry. Young Barzley died at Earle, AR on 23 May 1892. On 2 June 1892 an obituary in the Savannah Courier newspaper said "He was taken violently sick on the 21st of May, and soon became unconscious, and suffered greatly until death. His once manly form sleeps 'neath nature's verdant carpet at Gibson Bayou Church." Young Barzley's paternal grandfather was Barzley East, who was also the brother of young Barzley's maternal grandfather. (M77,ES, 35s)


        Barzley Graves East [E1b12], son of Thomas East and Sarah Graves, was born 15 December 1812 in Henry Co VA and came to TN with his family when he was a teen. He grew up in Giles Co and married Nancy Elizabeth Jones on 22 February 1833, probably in Giles Co at Robertson Fork Church; during the year following his marriage, Barzley and his bride lived with his parents in Giles Co. Nancy was born in TN in 1811, and was the mother of Barzley's first eight children. Nothing is known of her parents, but since Barzley was a member of Robertson Fork Church until 1835 (see the biography of his grandfather Thomas East), and since a John H Jones was a member of that church since 1831 and was born about 1811, he may be a brother. Nancy died in 1860 or 1861, probably in McNairy Co where she and Barzley had lived for fifteen to twenty years. On 29 October 1861 in McNairy Co Barzley married Elizabeth Frances Tanner, his second wife. She was born 18 February 1835 near Robertson's Fort in mid-TN (probably Robertson Fork, between Lynnville and Cornersville), and was still living in McNairy Co in the summer of 1910.

        Barzley was a farmer all his life. He is named on a deed record in Webster Co MO in 1855. This is more evidence that there were close family ties between the East families of Laurens Co SC and the East families of Henry Co VA; Shadrack East, born in Laurens Co and son of Thomas East of Laurens Co, was living in Webster Co MO at the time, after his move from Giles Co where Barzley had lived in the 1840s near Shadrack.

        Barzley died at home at Stantonville in McNairy Co, probably of a series of strokes, on 29 September 1889. He was well respected by his family "and was a noble christian gentleman, beloved by all who knew him." Barzley had at least 14 children-

        Basil Edwin East [E4a3a1a3h3b], son of John William East and Louisa Sims, was born 7 September 1897 in Upshur Co TX, and died 3 December 1897 at Gilmer, Upshur Co. (W)


        Beatrice East [E4a3a6d1g7c], daughter of Felix James East and Dolly Elizabeth Wells, was born in Lawrence Co AR on 9 November 1913. She married a Mr Lorey when she was age 15 probably in MO where he was born, and in 1930 she and her mother and siblings lived at Springfield, Greene Co MO. She claimed she was then a widow. Beatrice later married a Mr Funtila, and died in San Diego Co CA on 30 November 1884. She had at least one child, a son-

        Beebe East [E14d1f7], son of David East and Nancy Minerva Paul, was born in 1856 in Washington Co IL. He was living with her father in Washington Co in 1870. (565q,218s)


        Bell Emma East, daughter of Thomas M East Sr and Talitha Eliza Weir, was born in Clark Co AR in 1867 (was age 1 in 1870). She grew up in Clark Co, but when she married William C Winn [E4c5b1d1] in 1893, they moved to Waterloo, Laurens Co SC and stayed there until just after 1900, then moved back to her home county of Clark Co AR. William was born in (Laurens Co?) SC in December 1864, son of Sally C East [E4c5b1d] (Mrs Sallie Winn) who lived with them in 1900. In 1880, William and his widowed mother lived with her brother Dr Colin D East [E4c5b1i] in Laurens Co. In 1910 William and Bell lived next door to her mother in Clark Co. They had three daughters, all born in Laurens Co SC-

1.     Eula E Winn, b Oct 1893 (3u,63v)

2.     Mary B Winn, b Jul 1896 (3u,63v)

3.     Evelyn B Winn, b Dec 1898 (3u,63v)

Sally C East, mother of William C Winn, was a daughter of William East and Bethiah L Saxon. What connection there was between Bell Emma East's father Thomas M East and William C Winn's East grandfather is not known. (M92,3su,63rsv)


        Belle East [E4c3a3b2f1i], daughter of Joseph Wesley East and Sarah Elizabeth Graham, was born 3 March 1901 in MO. She married Wiley Columbus Coffey in 1920 and they lived at St Louis in 1925, Twelvemile Twp Madison Co MO in 1930, and in 1936 moved to Mill Creek. He was born 3 June 1892 in Grainger Co TN, son of James A Coffey and Martha Dalton, and died at Mill Creek on 8 December 1950 on pneumonia. Wiley was buried in Marcus Memorial Park Cemetery at Fredericktown. Belle died at Fredericktown in October 1975. They had no children during the first nine years of their marriage. (N,Z,139vwfd)


        Benjamin D East [E4a2a5f], son of William East and Rhoda Clark, was born in 1817 in Charlotte Co VA (age 33 in 1850, 47 in 1860). He married Ann Eliza Noel on 18 September 1837 in Charlotte Co. They were not found in Charlotte Co in 1840 (many families were missed by the 1840 census taker), but had moved to Campbell Co by 1850, the county next door to the west. There were no Noel families in Charlotte Co in 1840, but there was one in Campbell Co: Matthew Noel. He, though, was only of age to be a brother to Ben's wife Ann.

        Ben was a tailor. Ann Eliza was born in 1821 (age 28 in 1850, 34 in 1860, 49 in 1870) in VA. Ben died in the 1870s and Ann then lived with her son Ben. They had six known children, but likely more since there were an extra two years after their marriage when children older than daughter Virginia could have been born. Ben's children were all probably born in Campbell Co, if not in Charlotte Co-

1.     Virginia L East, b 1840

2.     Charlotte Elizabeth East, b Oct 1841

3.     Louisa Eliza East, b 1845

4.     Benjamin Franklin East, b Nov 1847

5.     Emma Frances East, b 11 Nov 1849

6.     Robert Alexander H East, b 8 Jul 1852

7.     Nannie Florelle East, b 27 Jul 1856

8.     M Willie East (dau), b 1862

Ben's mother Rhoda lived with him in 1850 and in 1860. She gave her age as 63 in 1850, and 70 in 1860. (24ijm,25nqr)


        Benjamin Darcy East [E19a8e9], son of Stephen Bernard East and Mary Tullula Whitlow, was born 27 July 1893 at Easton, Tallapoosa Co AL. He married Hazel M _____ after June 1917; on that date Ben was single, working at the family saw mill, and lived at Dadeville. Hazel was born 23 September 1902 in AL, and died 20 October 1979 in Elmore Co. Darcy died 5 August 1968 in AL and was buried in Clanton City Cemetery, Chilton Co AL. In 1930 "Benjamin D East," age 36 and his wife Willie H _____ were living at Hackneyville, Tallapoosa Co. She was born about 1905 and was married at the age of 14; Benjamin was married at the age of 25. (CS,M,258vf)


        Benjamin David East [E4a3a6d1g24a1b], son of Gary Gilbert East and Pat Thistle, was born 1 November 1976 at Poynette, WI. (RR,N)


        Benjamin East [E4c6c5k9], son of James East and Mary Ann Summers, was born 9 December 1857 at Alton, Crawford Co IN. He married Drucilla J Royal on 13 October 1878 in Perry Co and in 1880 they lived next door to his older brother John in Ohio Twp, Crawford Co. Drucilla was born in Perry Co IN in 1852 (the family lived there in 1850), daughter of Richard R Royal and Elizabeth _____. Drucilla's widowed mother lived next door in 1900 in Ohio Twp. In 1910 Ben and his family and grandchildren lived in Lamotte Twp.

        There is a controversy over the spelling of the first name of Ben's wife. In 1880 it was definitely Druzilla, and she was age 26. In 1900 she was Trucilla, age 47, family # 196; to compare the writing of the first letter of the names, Lutitia Cox and Lutitia's father Bryant Trobaugh were family #184; Drucilla's sister Lucina Royal, family # 197 lived next door; Daniel D East was in family #198, and Thomas East was family #213. And in 1910 ben's wife was Lucilla, age 56, family #30 with her son-in-law Thomas Cox in here home. Nearby was a Lucinda in family #27; James Dill was family #29. In three census records, the first letter of her name was definitely different in each case. In 1860 she was Priscilla Royal, age 8 in her parents' home at Jackson, Spencer Co IN. In 1870 she was Drusilla, age 17 at Liberty, Crawford Co. For now, let's assume Ben's wife was Drucilla. They had three children-

a.     Bessie B East, b 10 Nov 1879

b.     Elmer Loran East, b 26 May 1882

c.     Ida B East, b Jul 1889 (W,625qrsu,765m)


        Benjamin East [E19], found in Hall Co GA in 1830, was born in 1762; the eldest female in his home was born in the 1780s, so could either be a second and much younger wife, or a daughter. Other East names in Hall Co in 1830 were Daniel East and Stephen East, both of age to be sons of Benjamin. In neighboring Jackson Co in the early 19th Century and late 18th Century was a Joseph East whose wife was Milly; that Joseph was of age to be Benjamin's brother. In 1850 we find Benjamin East in Gwinnett Co GA, the county just southwest of Hall Co. Benjamin was age 88 in 1850, born in VA. In his home with him was Patience East who was born in SC in 1800. Being 38 years younger, she was likely a daughter. Other probable children of Benjamin were born in SC also.

        Benjamin moved to north central Georgia by 1820 and developed his homestead; by having lived on the land for at least a year, he could claim title to it. Benjamin's acreage was lot 51 of section 9 in Jackson Co, which he was given title to in 1821. This was in Knox's Military District. Since Benjamin took title this land in 1821, his children born in 1820 and for the next few years must have been born in Jackson Co. (Two other East names claiming title to Georgia land with this method and about this time were "Silast East" (a child of Benjamin?), and widow "Ufau East;" Silast's land was in Clarke Co and Ufau's was in Oglethorpe Co. All three of these counties are next to each other.) In 1827 a Benjamin (whether this Benjamin, or his grandson, son of Stephen, is not known) took title under the same rules to land in Hall Co (section 1, district 8, lot 161). See the following information about Sarah; this 1827 land title then was likely for the elder Benjamin.

        Benjamin was a trader with the Cherokee and Monacan Indians of the Virginia Piedmont during the American Colonial period. He married at age 17 to a Cherokee woman since his eldest son Stephen was half Cherokee, and had children starting at age 18, lived in north central GA, then over the years stayed in the northwestern counties of GA and the east center of AL. No record of him in SC in 1810 has been found, but there was a Benjamin East in Laurens District SC in 1800, along with many other East families. Ben's children moved with him, and many of them finally settled in the east central edge of the state. Benjamin no doubt died in the 1850s in Gwinnett Co GA.

        Sarah H East died in Hall Co GA in April 1850 just two months before the census was taken. She was too old to be a wife of any of Benjamin East's known sons other than Stephen, and Stephen's wives names are known. Therefore she was likely a second wife of Benjamin.East [E19]. Sarah was age 72 in April 1850 when she died, and was born in SC. Her birth year was about 1777, fifteen years younger than Ben. If she was Ben's second, then it is highly unlikely that the Patience East in his home in 1850 was another wife, especially since she is of age to be Ben's daughter.

        In Gwinnett Co in 1850, living four farms from Benjamin was a John East who was born in GA in 1824; John was either a son from Benjamin's last marriage, or was a grandson. John was married to Eliza _____ who was born in SC in 1821. Mostly using census records and birth places of East people who lived near Benjamin over the years, it appears that some of his children were-

a.     Stephen East, b VA 1780

b.     Zealous East, b 1780s

c.     Jesse East, b 1798

d.     Patience East, b 1800 in SC, probably never married. (268n)

e.     Isaac East, b abt 1800

f.     John East, b 1824 in GA. (268n) (M92,M39,250yz,247z,47k,268n)


        Benjamin East [E4c1a2], son of Edward East and Mary Hobson of Henrico Co VA, was born about 1748 in Henrico Co VA. According to DAR records, he was born circa 1750 in England, came to VA from England, settled in Campbell Co, and died about 1834 in Goochland Co VA, according to data preserved by Elizabeth Cross (Mrs Walton S Anderson) of Nashville, TN in 1932.

        According to records kept by Charles Strong and put to paper in 1834, Benjamin "was borne 1759 and his wife Nancy East, maiden name was Prewit, borne in 1760 - Benjamin East dide in 1809, Nancy East dide in 1800." Charles Strong was a descendant of Benjamin East's daughter Mary. Other existing evidence supports the records kept by Strong, rather than the DAR records.

        Benjamin served with the American armies in the Revolution. He married Nancy Ann Pruitt on 20 August 1773 in Goochland Co, in St James Northam Par. She was a daughter of John Pruitt and Alice Addison. In 1787 Ben was named on a Goochland Co Personal Property tax list, owning one slave above the age of 16 and one below 16, one horse, and seven cattle. Ben died by October 1809 since there was an inventory of his estate in Davidson Co TN on 14 December 1809, which indicated he was dead by October. On 25 August 1813 his estate was settled, and debts owed to Charles Hall, Jess Carrell (the administrator and Ben's son-in-law), James Buchanan, John Jones, George Strong, Jane East, Benjamin East Jr, Tarlton East, Edward H East, Addison East, and John W East were paid. Ben and Nancy probably had nine to eleven children-

a.     Mary East, b 25 May 1774

b.     John W East, b 11 Jun 1775

c.     Benjamin East, b 1 Aug 1776

d.     Nancy East, b 1770s

e.     Martha East, b Sep 1780

f.     Elizabeth East, b 29 Aug 1783

h.     Sarah East, b 1780s

i.      Edward Hyde East, b 1792

j.      Lucinda East, b 11 Dec 1792

k.     Jane East, b 7 Oct 1793

m.    Tarlton East

John Pruitt and wife Alice Addison had children and family named in his 11 March 1788 Goochland Co will: son Harwood Pruitt; son Obadiah Pruitt; son John Pruitt Jr, who was dead by 1788 and who had a son Obadiah Pruitt; son Abram Pruitt; and daughter Ann Pruitt who married an East and had a son John East.

The records kept by Charles Strong and put to paper in 1834 was published in Valley Leaves (Vol.3, No.4, June 1969, pages 101-106), a quarterly publication of the Tennessee Valley Genealogical Society, Huntsville, Alabama. (M16,M90,M92,D,L,EE,JF,M31,8p)


        Benjamin East [E19a3], son of Stephen East and Theresa Ray, was born in 1805 in Spartanburg Co SC, was of the Cherokee Indian tribe, and married Margaret Gregg about 1826, probably in Troup Co GA, and for a few years they lived in Troup Co, just across the state line from eastern AL. Troup Co was formed in 1826 from Indian lands, and when new land was opened, it generally was cheap land to be taken by young adults looking to start their own homesteads. The "counties" across the state line in AL were still Indian land for another six years, so it is highly unlikely that Ben and Margaret married there. In 1830 their neighbor was William Gregg, probably Margaret's brother. The only other Benjamin East in GA in 1830 was in Hall Co, and was the grandfather of Benjamin East [E19a3]. In the 1830s, probably around 1837 soon after the (Indian lands of eastern AL) were made available to the White settlers, Ben and Margaret had moved a short distance west to the newly formed county of Tallapoosa in eastern AL. And in 1850 they were still in the same general area, but this time in Talladega Co. Ben was a miller. Margaret was born in 1806 in GA, daughter of John Gray Gregg and Rebecca Gladney. Ben died in 1866 in Randolph Co AL, and was buried in Liberty Church of Christ Cemetery near Liberty, just east of Lineville in Randolph Co. Margaret died after 1870 and was buried with Ben. They had about twelve children-

In 1840, Ben's mother or mother-in-law lived with him in Tallapoosa Co. (L,OD,247i, 246j,258k, 243n,47qr)


        Benjamin East [E4c1a2c], son of Benjamin East and Nancy Pruitt of Campbell Co and Goochland Co VA, was born 1 August 1776, and was christened in St James Northam Par on 1 June 1777. He may have married Ann Hill in Campbell Co. There is an 1800 Goochland Co tax list with Benjamin East Jr on it. Ben was named in the August 1813 estate settlement of his father. (D,L,M92, JA)


        Benjamin East [E27b], son of William East of Tower Street, London, England, was born in London by 1662. He came to PA by November 1682. On 20 April 1683 there was surveyed to John West a lot in Philadelphia by Benjamin East, thus proving that both were in Philadelphia on that date. In the meanwhile, Benjamin East and John West had returned to England where on 16 August 1683 Benjamin made an agreement with John West of Exeter and Richard West of London, fishmonger, to protect the dowry of his wife Hannah "in natural love and affection" in case she should outlive him, and mentions 700 acres and messuage (home and outbuildings) in PA, part of his 1,250 acres allotment as the dower.

        Benjamin married Hannah West at the Bull and Mouth in London, England on 25 January 1680. She was probably born in the mid-1660s, after 1664, in England, daughter of John West and Mary _____ (Hannah's father was born in 1622).

        It is probable that Benjamin's father-in-law John West went with him and then remained in England for the rest of his life, for no proof of his presence in PA afterwards has been found. Benjamin East, however, was back in PA when additional surveys were made for him in 1684 and he was of Philadelphia when he sold land in 1685. Benjamin died in Philadelphia in 1686, for on 6 September 1686 Hannah was named as the administrator of his estate. She afterwards married Daniel Street at her house in Philadelphia on 16 November 1687. Hannah died in August 1706. She was mentioned in her father's 1698 will, in which her father named his son-in-law "Benjamin East, deceased," Benjamin's son John, then not yet age 21, and Benjamin's daughter Mary, then not yet age 21. The will also said that Hannah was living in PA.

        Benjamin had a survey done on 30 August 1682 for 585 acres "up Tacony Creek" in Oxford Twp, Philadelphia Co. Benjamin East "mart" (merchant) and wife Hannah sold two lots of land. One on 28 March 1685 was 200 acres in Oxford Twp adjoining William East's property, for £20 to Thomas Graves, part of a grant from William Penn dated 13 October 1681; he gave power of attorney on 18 July 1685 to William O'Rion of Philadelphia, blacksmith, to deliver the property to Thomas Graves. The other property he sold, on 16 November 1685 for £5, was two lots in the city of Philadelphia totaling 25 acres, to Barnabas Wilcox, obtained by warrant from William Penn on 16 May 1684; Benjamin gave power of attorney to Robert Longshore to make delivery.

        Blackwell's Rent Roll of 1689 shows that Benjamin East and William East were owners of Old Purchase lots of 25 feet, for five years, on Front Street between Mulberry and High, and similar lots of 39 feet on High.

        Benjamin probably came to America the first time on the ship Hester And Hannah, of which his brother William East was master. It loaded in March 1682 and arrived in the Delaware on 8 August 1682, in time for Benjamin, if he was aboard, to take up his land later in the same month and to arrange for John West's first survey.

        Benjamin and Hannah had two children-

1.     John East, born 21 August 1682 at Brooks Wharf, London, England. He was a cordwainer (shoemaker) and died about 1707 at sea, unmarried and without issue.

2.     Mary East, b 23 Aug 1685

By her marriage with Daniel Street, Hannah had two children: Benjamin Street, born 26 February 1688; and James Street, born 26 August 1692. Daniel died 20 July 1738, age 80. (M18,M19)

In Limestone Co TX in 1880 there were only four male Riggs: two were children ages 8 and 5, were sons of Worden Riggs and his wife Frances. The only available male Riggs in Limestone Co was Jerry J Riggs, born in PA in 1842. Jerry Riggs and his sister Elsie Riggs, born in IA, lived together and were both single. Both of these two Riggs families lived close to each other. In Sullivan Co MO in 1870, Worden and his wife Frances and their 4 year old daughter Mary E were found, and in their home were Jerry Riggs and Mary E Riggs, apparent siblings to Worden. After this family moved to Limestone Co TX in the 1870s, they left by 1900 and Worden was found living in Chaves Co NM in 1900 with his married son George; Worden was then a widower, and his son Fred was yet unmarried. Jerry had moved Nell, Live Oak Co TX where he died was not found, and by then their sister Mary E was probably married. Note that the youngest son of Beula East was also named Jerry J Riggs.
