        Mary East [E4d], daughter of Thomas East Sr of Henrico Co VA and Dorothy Thomas, was born around the 1680s, and in 1726 when Mavel's father wrote his will, "Item I give unto Mary Alsope my daughter one-shilling." Mary had married William Alsop by then. Over the years, there has been a controversy whether Mary was actually Mary Mavel East. But if this was true, then why did her father call her Mary when she was married to Mr Alsop, and Mavel when she was married to Mr Robinson? Actually, it is far more likely that there were two daughters, and Mary was the youngest since the first mention of her was when Mary's father wrote his will in 1726, thus indicating that she was either not born until years after Mavel, or wasn't an adult until years after her father started giving gifts to his elder children in 1690. (MV,JY)


        Mary East [E27b2], daughter of Benjamin East and Hannah West, was born 23 August 1685. She married Joseph Cook. He was dead by 1745. Mary and Joseph had four children-

a.     Benjamin Cook

b.     Rebecca Cook

c.     John Cook

d.     Hannah Cook (M18)


        Mary East [E4c4], daughter of Edward East Sr of Henrico Co VA, was born in the 1690s-1710s in Henrico Co. She was named in her father's 1734 will as Mary, without a last name, thus leaving us without a hint of whether she was married at the time. (EP, 29p)


        Mary East [E4c6e], daughter of Joseph East and Mary _____ of Louisa Co VA, was born about 1744 in Louisa Co VA. She married Benjamin Cannon by 1868. Mary received a feather bed and a Negro girl named Nan in her father's 1768 will. In her father's will, it clearly says "give to my daughter Mary Cannon." (EL,W, 1083p)


        Mary East [E4a3a3], daughter of William East and _____ Langston of Charlotte Co VA, was born around 1751, in the middle of the 18th Century, in VA. She was married to John Dickenson by July 1766, probably in Charlotte Co and was named in her father's will. (JA,24p)


        Mary East [E1a], daughter of John East and Frances Harston of Pittsylvania Co VA, was born in Pittsylvania Co on 8 May 1764 (Henry Co was formed from Pittsylvania Co in 1776, so she wasn't born in Henry Co as is often reported). She married Joel Pace in Henry Co soon after 20 November 1780 and remained in the area at least until October 1814 when her husband appeared in the Henry Co court concerning the division of the estate of Mary's father. See Martha H East [E4a3a6d2]. On 15 February 1788 in Henry Co there was an inquisition into the death of a Negro girl, the property of John Walsh, and some of those testifying were Thomas East and Joel Pace. This helps establish that Joel Pace and his wife Mary East lived close to Thomas East, probably her brother. Joel was born 28 July 1762 in Pittsylvania Co or Amelia Co VA, son of William (Pace) (born 1724 Middlesex Co VA) and Susanna West (born 1726 in VA). Joel was a Private in the Continental Army in the Revolutionary War. From info from the Pace Family Genealogy Forum, many of the children of Mary and Joel moved to Jefferson Co IL with their father, Joel Pace Sr, via KY. Joel died at Mount Vernon on 31 August 1831 and was buried in Pace Cemetery in Jefferson Co IL, as was Mary. She died in 1850, age 88, before the June census. All the known children were-

1.     John Montague Pace, b 14 Aug 1783

2.     Frances Pace, b 14 May 1785

3.     Jane Pace, b 5 Aug 1787

4.     Mary Polly Pace, b 5 Aug 1789

5.     Joseph Pace, b 1 Dec 1791

6.     Joel Pace Jr, b 1 Dec 1791

7.     Spencer Pace, b 8 May 1794

8.     Letitia Pace, b 4 Jul 1796

9.     Martha Patsy Pace, b 3 Nov 1798

10.   Thomas East Pace, b 26 Feb 1801

11.   William West Pace, b 26 Dec 1803

12.   Milly Pace, b 14 Aug 1806

13.   Francis A Pace, b 1811 (M94,JA,RC,M32,M33,W,203c,28y)

 

        Mary "Polly" East [E4c1a2a], daughter of Benjamin East and Nancy Pruitt of Campbell Co and Goochland Co VA, was born 25 May 1774, and was christened on 7 August 1774 at St James Northam Par in Goochland Co. She married George Strong on 6 June 1796 in Goochland Co. He was born 15 January 1773, son of Agis Nathaniel Strong and Catherine Callahan. They settled in Madison Co AL, where George died on 18 August 1834. Polly died 18 February 1842, also in Madison Co. His probate was case # 77, and Polly's was case #506. They were both buried in the Strong family Cemetery north of Huntsville, along with some of their children. Mary and George had no headstones over their graves. They had five children-

1.     Pleasant Strong, b 14 Jul 1798

2.     Nancy Strong, b 21 Dec 1799

3.     Hopson Strong, b 27 Jan 1801

4.     Robert Strong, b 20 Dec 1802

5.     Charles Waite Strong, b 11 Aug 1804

To get to the Strong family Cemetery from downtown Huntsville, go about 4.75 miles north Meridian Street, and on the east side of Meridian Street where the road has a big curve, look to the right for a clump of old trees in the middle of a farm field. The graves are in those trees. If you are coming south from Tennessee on hiway 231, go 12 miles from the state line to the intersection of where Meridian Street N meets the hiway. Turn southeast at this intersection. You will see a large church on the left at this intersection; the church is on the spot where the George Strong house stood. As the road curves to a true south direction, look for the clump of trees on the left, where the graves are. This one of the two Strong family cemeteries.

Instead of turning southeast at Meridian Street from hiway 231, but instead continue 0.1 miles south on the hiway from the intersection, you will meet Mt Charron Road, which goes west from the hiway. And 0.1 miles west of hiway 231 and on the south side of Charron Road is an empty lot with houses on both sides. This is the second of the two Strong family cemeteries.

Nathaniel Strong was born in 1744 and died in 1823 in Madison Co AL; he left a will. Nathan's wife Katy was born in 1754 and died in 1828. In the neighborhood where Mary and George lived was William East Sr [E1f], born in Halifax Co VA on 24 February 1776.

There was a Thomas Strong who died in Madison Co AL about 1839; his probate file (case # 516) named heirs. He was born in the 1770s, and was George Strong's brother. Bible records of this family state that Thomas Strong Sr married Elvira A M Steger on 10 January 1833 when he was age 56 (born in 1777) and Elvira was at age 32 (born in 1801). Their only child was Thomas Benton Strong, born 25 July 1836. Thomas Sr died 23 May 1839 and his wife Elvira died 5 June 1878; Elvira later married Jonathan Mayhew but had no children with him. Other evidence from Madison Co indicates that Thomas Strong Sr had children before his marriage to Elvira, and one of them apparently married Elisa _____ by the early 1820s; they had children, then he died in the late 1830s. In 1830 Elisha was then living close to Pleasant Strong, Mary East's son.

Other apparent children of the first marriage of Thomas Strong was Mary Strong who married George T Sadler in Madison Co on 24 December 1816, and married again on 8 December 1824 to John W Thompson. There was a John Strong who married Margaret Montgomery in Madison Co on 9 January 1823, and there was Susan Strong who married Walker Wilson on 13 December 1824. Thomas Benton Strong (Jr), from Thomas' second marriage, married Willie E Ellett, and died 29 December 1896; they had many descendants. (M92,D,L,JF, JA,M31, CK,556m, 48jkpm)


        Mary East [E4c6c5a], daughter of Josiah East and Elizabeth _____, was born in Lincoln Co VA about 1785. She married Abraham Eastridge in Lincoln Co on 30 March 1801. He was born in 1775. Her parents gave their consent since she was under age. (M52)


        Mary East [E4a3a12], daughter of William East and Frances Cockerham, was born about 1786 in Stokes Co NC. She married Jesse Harold on 13 November 1810 in Patrick Co VA; the minister for that marriage was Thomas Whitlock, the same minister who married Frances East and Jonathan Harrell in 1809. Jesse Harold was not found on any federal census in 1820. (W,1043p, 30m)


        Mary East, daughter of William East and Frances Cochran of Grayson Co VA, was born by the 1790s. (M92)


        Mary East [E4c3a3e], daughter of Isham East and Mary Eades, was born 12 October 1791 in Patrick Co VA. She married Asa Tyre Riddle on 2 April 1812 in Patrick Co. The surety was Samuel Cannon. Asa and Mary were in Stokes Co NC in 1820 and into the 1850s, a short distance south of Patrick Co. He was born about 1790 at Frisco, Stokes Co, son of Tyre Riddle and Clarissa Clay. In 1840 their next door neighbor was Asa's father Tyre Riddle who was born in 1765 in VA or MD. Asa died 10 April 1861 in Lee Co VA, where many of his children had moved, and Mary then lived there with her son John. She died in Lee Co in the 1870s. She and Asa were buried in Ward Graveyard at Turkey Grove, Lee Co VA. They had three children by 1820, eight by 1830, and ten by 1840, all born in Stokes Co NC-

1.     John Riddle, b 22 Apr 1813

2.     Tyre Riddle, b 1813

3.     Isom Riddle, b 1819

4.     Clarissa Riddle, b 1821

5.     Austin Riddle, b abt 1823

6.     Randolph Riddle, b 25 Oct 1825

7.     Elizabeth Riddle, b 1826

8.     William J Riddle, b 12 Apr 1830

9.     Asa Riddle, b 27 Jul 1833

10.   Walter R Riddle, b 1837

Asa's father was buried in the Riddle family cemetery three miles south of Mount Airy in the Stoney Creek or Holly Springs area. Presumably, any children of Asa and Mary who died in Stokes Co would be buried there also. And there were three Riddle marriages in Surry Co in the pre-1812 years. Those may have been Asa's aunts and uncles. (W,30mp, 76Gijkn,1093r)


        Mary "Polly" East [E4c5a1d], daughter of Tarlton East Sr and Zilpha Priscilla Walker, was born in the 1790s in Laurens Co SC. She married Vincent Chance in Amite Co MS on 26 December 1811. He was born in Burke Co GA in 1786, son of Philemon Chance and Louisa Day, and died in Rankin Co in 1841. Many researchers claim that Vincent died in Rankin Co GA, but GA has no Rankin Co; MS does, at the northeast corner of Copiah Co. Hence, Rankin Co MS is the likely place where Vincent Chance died.

        In 1820 they lived at Beaver Creek in Feliciana Par LA just eight doors from Josiah East [E4c5a2a]. They were both age 26-44 in 1820, and by then had four children. In 1830, along with many of Mary's close East relatives, they were in Copiah Co MS, and had another six children by 1830. On 6 April 1837 "Vincent Chance of Copiah County Mississippi" bought 80.71 acres in Copiah Co from the US Government, so we know he probably lived in Copiah Co until then. The 1830 census for Copiah Co showed just three Chance families: Benjamin Chance, born 1780s (page 105); Eli Chance, born about 1790, (page 102); and Vincent Chance, born 1780s (page 113). These three were brothers. Benjamin and Vincent were no longer in Copiah Co in 1840; Ben had died and his widow Charity Cagle lived close to Eli Chance in 1840. Eli had married Elizabeth Cagle. Vincent Chance was living in Rankin Co MS in 1840. In his home there were nor sons, but he stll had four females. One was born in the 1800s (an older daughter?), and the remaining three were likely daughters or granddaughters. Vincent's children were-

1.     dau Chance, b 1812-1815 (404i,37j) / Massey Chance, b abt 1820 in LA, married John W Oar in Rankin Co MS on 7 July 1842. He died of dropsy in 1859 in Rankin Co, age 46. Massey died 1 June 1869 in Rankin Co. (W,386m)

2.     son Chance, b 1815-1820 (404i,37j)

In southwest MS are four counties that join at their common corners: Hinds, Rankin, Simpson, and Copiah Counties. Copiah County is the county at the southwest corner of these four; on the south side of Copiah is Lincoln Co, and at Lincoln Co's west side is Franklin Co. These six counties are the places where these East people lived for about a generation or more. (W,3e,404i,37jz,386k)


        Mary East married Peter Repetoe on 22 June 1811 in Augusta Co VA. (M94)


        Mary East [E4c6c2a], daughter of North East, married David E Sloan in Wayne Co KY on 14 June 1815, and may have married Samuel Harper second. If she was the wife of Samuel, she was born 24 May 1781, and died on 9 July 1860; she is buried in Holliday Cemetery in Monroe Co MO. Samuel was born 3 November 1797, and died 17 October 1851. He is also buried in Holliday Cemetery. David and Polly were in Kirksville, Adair Co MO when her father North East died in Wayne Co KY. David and Polly had at least one child-

1.     Nancy Ann Davis Sloan (BW)

Elizabeth East, probably Mary's sister, was born in 1795 and married Joseph Holliday in Monroe Co in 1837. Mary must have been buried in Joseph's family cemetery. (M92,BW,995m,125h)


        Mary East [E1d2], daughter of Joseph East and Jane Rea, was born in Henry Co VA between 1795 and 1800. (EE,EP)


        Mary East [E4c5a2d], daughter of Thomas East and Nancy Caldwell, was born between 1805 and 1810, either in Laurens Co SC or in KY. She married Littlebury Fauver. (M92)


        Mary East married William Smith in Charlotte Co VA on 4 June 1832; the bondsman and a witness was Thomas Palmer. John Clark was also a witness. Mary was over age 21 at the time. (24m)


        Mary East [E4c3b2a2], daughter of Thomas East and his first wife, was born in 1825 in Simpson Co KY. She was a young girl when her family moved to Lincoln Co MO, where she married William R Smith Jr on 29 May 1844. William was from NC, born in 1823. In 1850 they lived four doors from her father. Also, next door to William and Mary was his father, who was from NC. From the birth places of William Sr's children and from the 1840 census records, it appears that this Smith family moved to Lincoln Co from NC after 1840. William Jr and Mary lived around 15 or 20 years in Bedford Twp, then in 1870 they were living in Monroe Twp. They had eleven known children-

a.     Sarah E Smith, b 1845 (46nq)

b.     Mary E Smith, b 1847, perhaps married Daniel Madrigal about 1867 in Lincoln Co, and lived next door to her parents in 1870. (46nq)

c.     Thomas J Smith, b 1848 (46nq)

d.     William H Smith, b 1850 after May (46qr)

e.     Joseph R Smith, b 1852, married Mary Ellen Truscott on 26 December 1877. She was born in MO in 1852 also. They lived in Monroe Twp of Lincoln Co, and by 1880 had a daughter-

        Mary East, possibly a daughter (or grand daughter?) of William East and Sally _____ of Henry Co VA, was born in VA in 1826. She was yet unmarried in 1850. (28kn)


        Mary East [E4c6c3a9], daughter of Josiah East and Sarah Ann Storms, was born in 1827 in Garrard Co KY. She married John Murphy on 19 August 1851 in Garrard Co. John was born in June 1826 in Garrard Co. They lived in Garrard Co for years and had eight children, all born in Garrard Co KY-

a.     Celicity Murphy, b 1851, married Allen T Teater in Garrard Co on 24 December 1873. He was born in KY in 1846, and they lived at Buckeye. Celicity died in the 1890s, and her mother also died between 1880 and 1900. Her widowed father lived with Allen Teater at Buckeye in 1900. Celicity and Allen no doubt had more than two children-

        1.     Harmon Teater, b Dec 1875, married Jewel _____ in 1896. She was born in November 1879 in KY, and in 1900 they lived two doors from his father. Harmon and Jewel had two children by 1900-

                a.     Rice M Teater, b Oct 1896 (359u)

                b.     Myrtle D Teater, b Aug 1898 (359u) (359su)

        2.     Lewis E Teater, b Feb 1893 (359u)

In 1900, Allen Teater lived among three or more Teater families at Buckeye, Garrard Co; perhaps they are his children. (359qrmsu)

        Mary East [E8i], daughter of John East and Rebecca Lofton, was born 31 December 1827 in Caldwell Co KY (age 49 in 1880). She married Jesse Darnall Cannon in Caldwell Co on 18 February 1847, and in 1848 they moved south to Franklin Co MS where many of her siblings and cousins had moved years before. They settled in an area of Franklin Co where many Lofton families lived. Jesse was born in Caldwell Co KY on 18 September 1825 (age 53 in 1880), son of Tarleton Cannon and Elizabeth Darnall, and died at Wesson, Copiah Co MS on 22 June 1890. Mary died 11 October 1909 at Wesson. They had two children by 1850, five by 1860, and ten by 1880. The eldest child was born in Caldwell Co KY; the rest in Franklin Co or Lincoln Co MS-

Mary's mother moved from Caldwell Co to Franklin Co in the 1850s and lived with Mary and Jesse in 1860. (W,538jkm, 38nq)


        Mary East [E4a3a1c3i], daughter of John East and Zilpha Chance, was born 22 January 1828 in Leake Co MS. She married Micajah Blocker on 20 July 1843. He was born in Copiah Co on 29 August 1821, son of Michael Blocker and Rebecca Hendry, and died 9 August 1862 at Sugartown, Calcasieu Par, LA. Micajah was a Methodist Preacher. He and his family moved to Calcasieu Par in 1859 or very early 1860; all their children were born in Leake Co MS. In 1900 she was a widow, living with her widowed son Robert in living Calcasieu Par. In 1910 and in 1920 Mary lived with her widowed granddaughter Lura (daughter of Robert); they were in Calcasieu Par in 1910, and at Lake Arthur, Jefferson Davis Par in 1920. Mary died 16 January 1922 in Jefferson Davis Par, age almost 94. They had nine children; Mary claimed that only two children were still alive in 1900-

1.     Eugene Blocker, b 1844-1850

2.     Frances Ann Blocker, b 11 Jul 1844

3.     William Augustus Blocker, b 7 May 1846

5.     Robert M Blocker, b 25 Mar 1852

6.     Isaiah Blocker, b 1856

7.     Samuel Blocker, b 1857

8.     Mary Jane Blocker, b 1858

9.     Michie Blocker (son), b 1861 in MS per 1870 census, but was probably born in LA. (202r)

In the Richland Creek area of Feliciana Par LA in 1820 was: the Michail Blocker family living a few doors from the John East [E4a3a1a3] family; Priscilla East (born 1775 or before) who was Tarlton East Sr's widow Zilpha Priscilla Walker; Isaac East [E4a3a1a4]; and John Lofton who had married Sarah East [E4a3a1a6]. In 1824 Feliciana Par was split into East and West Feliciana Parishes. These families wound up being in East Feliciana Par after the split. (WLAq,W, JY,436n, 202qruv, 444w)


        Mary "Polly" East [E4a3b1f 2], daughter of Asa East and Charity _____, was born in 1828 in IL and was living with her parents in 1850 in Lincoln Co MO with her husband Henry Meyer. "H Meier" and Mary were married in St Charles Co MO on 25 April 1850. (St Charles Co is the county south of Lincoln Co.) Henry was born in Germany in 1824, and was a cooper in Lincoln Co. Mary was apparently widowed (or divorced?) in the late 1850s, so she and her children lived with her parents in 1860. Those children were-

a.     Agnes Meyer, b 1851 in Lincoln Co MO. (46q)

b.     Josiah Meyer, b 1853 in Lincoln Co MO. (46q)

c.     Annie Meyer, b 1855 in Lincoln Co MO. (46q)

d.     Sarah Meyer, b 1856 in Lincoln Co MO. (46q)

e.     Clarissa F Meyer, b 1857 in Lincoln Co MO. (46q)

f.     Thomas Meyer, b Apr 1860 in Lincoln Co MO. (46q) (176m,46jnq)


        Mary East [E4a3b1d5], probably a granddaughter of Asa East Sr and Mary _____ of Stokes Co NC, was born in 1831 in MO (age 29 in 1860, age 24 in 1870). She married William P Bain in Lincoln Co on 18 February 1855; William was born in 1834 in MO (age 18 in 1850, age 26 in 1860, age 37 in 1870, and age 47 in 1880). William was a son of John H Bain and Mary _____ of SC and NC who lived in Lincoln Co MO for many years. Of the two Bain / Bane families in Lincoln Co in 1850 (John H and Eli), only John H Bane was old enough in 1850 to have a son of age to marry in 1855, and he had a son named William, age 18 in 1850. The problem is that we don't know who Mary was a daughter of. Of the four known East men in Lincoln Co in 1850 who were of age to have a daughter who married in 1855 (Mary would have had to be born by 1840), only Joseph East had a daughter named Mary who could have married in 1855, and only Thomas had a daughter who had a name commonly used with the name Mary. Thomas East had a 21 year old daughter Elizabeth in 1880, born in MO; Asa East Jr's eldest daughter was Anna, age 10 and born in IL; Larkin had three daughters, Martha, Susan, and Dy, ages 17, 15, and 13; Joseph had an 11 year old daughter Mary, born in KY. The Mary who married William P Bain was born in MO, or so she reported. All these Bain / Bane and East families lived close to each other in Lincoln Co. With very erratic ages given to the census takers over the years, the best choice for the father of Mary East who married William P Bain in 1855 was the daughter of Joseph, or an unknown brother of Joseph, Thomas, Larkin and Asa.

        Mary and William lived in Lincoln Co where he was a farmer and a wagon maker, and where they had two children by 1860. Then in the early 1860s they moved to IL and had a son, then moved to Little Black Twp, Randolph Co AR where they were in 1870. William P lived in Clay Co AR in 1880, as did his son William; Clay Co is the county to the east of Randolph Co. Mary died in the 1870s, and William then took Katherine _____ as his next wife about 1877. She was another Missouri girl, born in 1849. And William reported that his father was born in KY, and his mother in SC. William P and Mary had three sons-

a.     Justin Bain, b 1856 in Lincoln Co MO, was probably dead by 1880. (46q,66r)

b.     William Peter Bain, b Feb 1860, lived in Clay Co AR in 1880 with his young wife. She was born in MO in 1865. (46q,66r, 61s)

The paper dated Wed., Oct. 9, 1940, p. 9, col. 3, gave the additional information that follows. John T. Finney was a former coal operator and retired business leader. His home was located at Fort Trial. He was the son of the late Marshall Finney and Mary East Finney, and was born Oct. 6, 1874, in Henry County, where he made his home until early manhood. He located at Pocahontas at the beginning of the development of the Pocahontas coal fields. He was a prominent figure in the development of the Turkey Gap Coal and Coke Company at Ennis, W. Va.

In 1904 he was united in marriage to Miss Philpott. Later in life, due to declining health, he retired from active business and returned to Henry County to make his home. He purchased from the late Henry C. Lester a farm known as "Fort Trial" where he spent his remaining years employed in farming. He helped organize the Fort Trial Christian Church near his home, giving a site for the lot where the brick church now stands. (W,N,28qrsm)

        Mary A East, [E4c3a3b4a], daughter of Haley East and Martha Priscillia James, was born about 1 October 1839 in Schuyler Co IL; she was under the age of 5 in the 1840 census, and considering that her sister Sarah Ann East was born on 1 July 1840, Mary must have been born by early October the prior year. Her parents were married on 21 March 1839, so most likely Mary's mother Martha was three months along when they married. The 1850 mortality schedule of Schuyler Co shows that a 10 years old girl named Mary A East died in January that year of "rheumatism." Since Haley East and his family were the only East family in the county, then this Mary A East had to be the daughter under age 5 in Haley's household in the 1840 census. And the census date that year was on June 1, hence second daughter Sarah Ann shouldn't have been in the 1840 census. The little girl in Haleys family then had to be the Mary A East who died in January of 1850, at age 10. (141kn)

John was a farmer and Confederate Veteran, having served in Company A, 50th TN Infantry as a private. He was a son of Barzley Graves East and Nancy Jones, and was born 7 February 1841 in Giles Co TN, but grew up in McNairy Co. Where John and Mary lived after 1869 and until 1879 is unknown, but must have been TN since the first five children appear to have been born there. In 1880 they were living at Coldwater, then in DeSoto Co MS; their sixth child's birth place was Coldwater. In 1885 Mary and her family were living at Atoka in Tipton Co in western TN; in 1886 or 1887 they had moved to AR and were living at Earle (near Tyronza) in 1893, Black Rock (northwest of Jonesboro) early in 1897, and soon afterwards at Tyronza where Mary died on 14 September 1897.

Robert claimed, in the 1900 census, that he was born in August 1860, but if the correct date was August 1861, then the arrival at New York City was in July 1862. (W,231R, 685rsmu, 649vw, 194f)


        Mary Alice East [E4a3a6d4e], daughter of Calvin Kermit East and Mabel P Reynolds, was born 25 July 1868 in Cass Co MI. She married a Mr Williams and lived at Traverse City. (W,M48,72rs)


        Mary Ann East [E4c6c3d5], daughter of Nimrod East and Martha Patsy Skidmore, was born in 1820 (age 36 in 1860) in Lincoln Co KY. She married Levi McFall, a Kentuckian, on 26 January 1837 in Lincoln Co KY and they moved to Jefferson, Johnson Co MO. Levi was born in KY in 1811 and was a blacksmith in Grand River Twp, Henry Co MO in 1850. It appears that his marriage with Mary was his second. By 1860 Levi had died, and Mary was living on the family farm with her children near Springfield. In 1870 she was in Tebo Twp, three doors from her brother Nathaniel, with some of her children. She and Levi had at least six children by 1860, all but the eldest born in MO; Levi's eldest son William G McFall, from his first marriage, was born in KY-

d.     Sarah James McFall, b 28 Feb 1848

e.     Mary C McFall, b 1851

f.     George E East McFall, b Sep 1853

William G McFall was apparently Levi's son from a prior marriage. Mary Ann East was the only mother he ever knew. William G McFall, born 1834 in Lincoln Co KY, grew up in Johnson Co MO and in Henry Co MO, was the eldest child in Mary and Levi's 1850 home. In 1860 he lived at Osage, Henry Co, was still single, and worked as a farm hand on the Young M & Sarah Dunning farm. Young and Sarah (Sarah Jane East [E4c6c3d7]) were William's step-aunt and uncle, through Mary Ann East. William G married Angeline _____ about 1865 in Henry Co MO. She was born in 1846 in OH. In 1870 they lived next door to his step-mother and had two children.

Living next door to Levi and Mary in 1850 was Robert McFall and his wife Martha. Martha was Martha Patsy Skidmore, the widow of Nimrod East [E4c6c3d], and was Mary Ann East's mother. Martha and Robert were born in VA in 1795 and KY in 1798. This Robert McFall may be an older brother of Levi. (JA,L,501j, 544k,44knqr)


        Mary Ann East [E4c6c5f1], daughter of John East and Eleanor East [E4c6c3e], was born 9 October 1820 in Ripley Co IN (born in KY, per the 1860 census). She married James Jackson Ross in Lawrence Co on 26 July 1841. In 1850 and 1860 they were living in the same Pleasant Run Twp where so many of the Kentucky-Indiana East families lived for years. James was born in Madison Co KY (TN per 1850 census) 27 November 1817 (age 30 in 1850, 40 in 1860), and died in Lawrence Co after May 1900 (died 17 August 1895?) at Heltonville. Mary died on 24 June 1863. They had ten children born in Lawrence Co IN-

        Mary Ann East [E4a2a3b1], daughter of Asa East and Elizabeth Templeton, was born in 1 August 1827 at Lynchburg, Campbell Co VA (north across the river from Pittsylvania Co). Her parents moved to Pike Co OH when she was a girl, and she married Isaac A Rhoads in 1844, probably at Bentonville, Adams Co OH where her mother and siblings were living in 1850, or at Ripley, Brown Co where Mary and Isaac were living in 1850. Isaac and their first two children were born in OH. Isaac was born in 1821. About 1851 they moved to Washington Twp, Greene Co IA. In the 1870s or 1880s they moved to KS, according to written family records. In early 1885 they were at Barclay, Osage Co KS. Isaac died in 1896. Mary Ann was a widow in 1900 and was living at Elmerdaro, Lyon Co KS with her daughter Luella; she was still with Mary in 1915, at Hartford, Lyon Co. In 1910 Mary lived with her son Fred in California Twp, Coffey Co. Mary died 21 December 1923 at Topeka, Shawnee Co, age 96. She was buried in Hartfored Cemetery next to Isaac. They had nine children (per 1910 census; eight per obituary); five were alive in 1910 and 1923. All but the first two were born in Greene Co IA-

From the Hartford News Dec 1928:

Mrs. Mary Rhoads Dead.

The remains of Mrs. Mary Rhoads, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. E. Collins, in Topeka, last Friday, Dec. 21, 1923, were brought to this place Saturday afternoon and laid to rest in the Hartford cemetery by the side of her husband. Short funeral services were held at the grave conducted by Rev. E. A. Hughes, pastor of the Methodist church.

Mary Ann East was born August 1, 1827, in Lynchburg, Va. She was married to Isaac Rhoads in 1844. To this union eight children were born, five of whom survive, as follows, S. F. Rhoads, of Pasadena, Calif., A. C. Rhoads, of Bakersfield, Calif., Fred Rhoads, of Hartford, Kans; Mrs. C. C. Campbell of Lebo, Kans., and Mrs. J. E. Collins, of Topeka, Kans. She is also survived by twenty grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren, and two great great-grandchildren.

With her husband she came to Western Kansas in 1880, and to Hartford in 1886, where they reamined until Mr. Rhoads' death in 1896. After that time she resided with her son, Fred Rhoads, until four years ago, when she went to Topeka to make her home with her daughter, Mrs. J. E. Collins.

During her girlhood Mrs. Rhoads was a member of the Quaker church. She lived a long and useful life and lacked but a few years of rounding out a century. She was aged 96 years, 4 months and 20 days.

Adams and Brown Counties are neighboring counties, at the southern edge of OH. The Ohio River forms the southern boundaries of both counties. Pike Co is the county to the northeast of Adams Co. Samuel Rhodes, born in OH in 1807, and his wife Martha, born in PA in 1813, lived next to Isaac in 1860. Also, a 33 year old Andrew Rhodes lived next door. Samuel and Martha were probably Isaac's parents, and Andrew a brother. (BJ,27j, 475k,N, 558n, 683qr, KSnsv, 1110u)


        Mary Ann East [E4c3b4d1], daughter of Jesse W East and Sarah Combs, was born 29 June 1832 in Monroe Co IN. She married Aaron Greene Bennett in Monroe Co on 14 February 1852.

h.     Nettie Bennett, b 1873, was shown as 22 year old daughter in 1880; but most children had wrong ages then, so perhaps the census taker got his in formation from neighbors, who didn't know much of this family. (W,1166s)

        Mary Ann East [E1d1a3j1], daughter of Isaac Cooper East and Beulah Neil Toler, was born 26 December 1931 at Atlanta, GA. She married Richard Philip Miller, son of Colonel Richard Miller, on 13 October 1951 at Williamsburg, VA; they divorced in 1961. She resided at Brandon, MS in 1988. (NF)


        Mary Ann V East [E4a2a2g1], daughter of Ezekiel East and Mary A Bailiss, was born in April 1841 in Pittsylvania Co VA. She married James R Mattox on 27 December 1877 in Pittsylvania Co. He was born in March 1856 in Campbell Co VA, son of Caswell Mattox and Jane _____. James said he was age 21 when he married, and Mary claimed age 30. She and Jim had four children by 1900, but none survived. They did take in orphaned children from other families, such as Cura P East, son of Mary's youngest brother James Mitchell East. Another child under their care in 1910 was Irish East, age 8. This might be Cura's sister; both children were shown to be James' and Mary's children in 1910, and had the Mattox name. In 1920 Cura had the East name again, but Irish was not found. She would have been age 18 in 1920, so may have married by then. In the 1910 census, both Irish's and Cura's names were first written as East, but erased to show Mattox. In 1880 Mary's brother John W East and John's son lived with Mary and James. Mary V and James R died after 1920, and in 1920 neither East child was living with them. Living next door in 1910 and in 1920 was the Ferdinand P and Armand Clay family (ages 60 and 45), and in their home were three grandchildren in 1910: John W East, age 11, Dora East, age 7, and Charlie Burks, age 6. In 1920 in the Clay home was granddaughter Nannie East, age 18 (but not John W). (EL, 26nq,25q, 27msuvw)


        Mary Anna East [E4c6c5k6c], daughter of John East and Elizabeth Jane Searcy, was born 10 April 1874 in Crawford Co IN. She married Ernest Lawrence Adams on 12 August 1902. They lived at French Lick, Orange Co IN in 1920. He was born 5 July 1877 in IN and died 3 April 1942. Mary died 25 February 1953. They had two children born in IN-

1.     Blanche O'Neal Adams, b 18 May 1903, probably married in the 1920s. (W,626w)

2.     Walter L Adams, b 7 Jul 1908, was not married in 1930 and was living with his parents at French Lick. He died in March 1967. (W,Z, 626wf) (W,625sv,626wf)


        Mary Anne East [E1d9d], daughter of Thomas East and Mary Sugg of Franklin Co AL, was born 17 June 1841 in Franklin Co.

In 1870 Adam lived with Mary's sister Hattie after Mary died, and Mary's two children lived with her parents. Adam was born about 1833 in Franklin Co AL, son of William R Alexander and Elizabeth _____. He and Mary had two children-

1.     Mary Elizabeth Alexander, b 24 Dec 1861

2.     Martha Jane Alexander, b 11 Dec 1864 (EP, 50nqr)


        Mary Augusta East [E4a3a1a5a2], daughter of John East and Frances Collins, was born 8 August 1842 in East Feliciana Par LA, died 23 February 1858. (W,104n)


        Mary B East [E3g5b], daughter of James Heritage East and Alice E Forkner, was born in October 1888 in Surry Co NC. She married Jasper Lee Cook in Surry Co on 9 April 1913. Witnesses to the marriage were Betty Cook and J H East. Mary East died in Surry Co on 24 September 1914, "age 25" (one month short of her birthday). Jasper was born 1 April 1882 at Westfield, Surry Co, son of Samuel Terry Cook (1849 NC) and Susan Abigail Neugent (1855 NC, married in 1878). After Mary East died in 1914, the confusion started.

        There were two Jasper Cook men in Surry Co during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The elder was Lindley Jasper Cook, born on 1 August 1879, while Jasper Lee Cook was born on 1 April 1882. Lindley's parents were William Mastin Billy Cook and Susan Jane _____. Hence, Lindley J and Jasper L were perhaps first cousins. Names on marriage records for these two men were "J L Cook" for Jasper Lee Cook when he married Mary East. "L J Cook" married "Mary Robertson" at Stewarts Creek, Surry Co on 24 June 1899; witnesses to this marriage were Ada Cain, M E Cain, J W Gardner, and J E Gardner. L J was age 19 (born 1879 or 1880) while Mrs Mary (Gardner) Robertson was age 18. "J L Cook" married "Maud Beasley" at Mount Airy on 10 September 1919; he was age 39 and she was age 21. Witnesses to this marriage were C J Needham, Mollie Griffith, and John E Davis; there was no East person involved with this marriage. And because J L Cook's age at this marriage indicated he was born in 1880, and his initials indicated that he could be Jasper Lee Cook, then he could be either Lindley J or Jasper Lee. Lindley's death record years later confirmed that it was Lindley who married Maude. Apparently Jasper Lee never married again after Mary East died.

        In 1910 in the home of Lindley J and Mary L were three Cook daughters; Susan L, age 8, Sarah A, age 6, and the youngest was two year old Viola V Cook. This 1910 census showed that Mary L was on her second marriage; apparently the first marriage was to a Mr Robertson. They lived at Mount Airy, Surry Co (family #118) in 1910. Also in 1910, in Westfield Twp, Surry Co was "Jasper L Cook," age 27, living with his elder brother Caleb F Cook. Jasper was single then (family #236), age 27. Jasper and Caleb were children of Samuel Cook and wife Susan in the 1900 Surry Co census.

        The 1920 census showed four children in the home of "Jasper C Cook" and his wife Maude. Their four children, all named as a daughter / son, were Berta, Viola, Lessie, and Archie. This census resulted in the most confusion when the census taker wrote down an incorrect name. The eldest two children, Berta (Sarah Alberta?) and Viola, were ages 15 and 13, yet in 1910 Jasper Lee Cook was still single, living with his brother Caleb in Surry Co, next door to their parents, and at that time Jasper had no children with him. We know from Viola's 1954 death certificate, she was born in 1908 and her mother was "Mary Gardner" and her father was "Jape L Cook." The 1920 census showed that Maude was Jasper C's "2nd wife." In 1910 Viola V Cook was the 2 year old daughter of Lindley J Cook (1879 NC) and his wife Mary Louisa Gardner (1879 NC). Mary L died in Surry Co on 20 February 1918; Lindley died in Surry Co on 10 August 1937. "Lindley Jap Cook" registered for the WW1 draft in Surry Co in September 1918, and was a barber. Since his wife Mary Gardner had died earlier that year, Lindley named "Archie Jap Cook" as his nearest relative. In the meanwhile, Jasper Lee Cook was not found in the1920 census. Lindley's death certificate in Surry Co on 10 August 1937 showed his parents as "William Cook" and "Susan Cook" and his wife as "Maud Beasley Cook" and he was married. "Mrs L J Cook" of Mount Airy was the informant for his death certificate. She gave his birth date as 1 August 1879. Lindley was shown to be a barber when he died. He was buried in Beasley Cemetery. Maude died at Mount Airy on 29 August 1980. The 1930 census showed "Jasper L Cook" and wife "Maude L" at Mount Airy with three children; the eldest two children were Lessie M and Archie J Cook. This Jasper L was age 49 then and Maude was age 33. She claimed she first married about 1919. Jasper L was a barber.

        Jasper Lee Cook who married Mary East was living with his second wife Nora Bell Hall at Gulf, Chatham Co in 1930. He and Nora married in Moore Co on 24 March 1921. She was born in NC on 18 October 1896, daughter of Thomas Hall (1856 NC) and Laura Leanna Phillips (1862 NC, married in Surry Co on 26 Feb 1880). They had at least nine children; the last eight in Chatham Co, and the first in Moore Co in 1922. One of their children was named Caleb Franklin Cook, born in Chatham Co on 7 January 1930. He was named after Jasper Lee Cook's elder a brother. Nora Bell died at Siler City, Chatham Co on 27 December 1976, age 80. Jasper Lee Cook died on 6 December 1949 in Chatham Co. There was no record that Mary East had any children. Chatham and Moore Counties NC are neighboring counties, about three counties southeast of Surry Co. (W,M,NCd, 240uvmwfdf, 1065m, 1419f)


        Mary C "Polly" East [E1f2], daughter of William East and an unknown mother, was born about 1800 in Henry Co VA (age 50 in 1850, 60 in 1860). She was a girl when her father and step-mother moved the family to Madison Co AL. There she married Jesse Gravett on 16 February 1818. He was born about 1797 in VA (age 53 in 1850), and died before 1853 when Mary's father's estate was in probate. Jesse was likely a cousin of Obadiah Gravett who married Polly's sister Elizabeth H East [E1f3]. Mary and Jesse lived in Limestone Co AL in 1850 with three sons; their daughters were no longer in their home (they married?). Mary and Jesse had at least four children who were named in the 1868 Madison Co probate records of Vincent Gravett, Jesse's brother; the named sons all lived in Arkansas in 1868 and were then adults. Apparently not all children were named since Alexander was an 11 year old son (or grandson?) living with Mary and Jesse in 1850. Mary lived with her son Larkin in Arlkannsas Co AR in 1860, a few doors from sons Willioam and Yancy. Her probable children were-

a.     Larkin M Gravett, b 1820 in AL. In 1860 he lived a few doors from his brothers Yancy and William, in Arkansas Co AR. His widowed mother lived with him then. (185n,48p,1367q)

        1.     Mary L Gravett, b Feb 1860 in Arkansas Co AR. (1367q) (48p,1367mq)

g.     Vincent G Gravett, b 1837 in AL. He married his first cousin Martha Pike [E1f5i] in Arkansas Co on 29 August 1860. She was born in Madison Co AL in 1843, daughter of Eliza P East and John Pike. They lived at Crockett, Arkansas Co in 1870. Vincent was a widower by 1880. In 1880 he lived at Keaton, Arkansas Co with five of his seve children; all were born in AR-

        1.     Egbert Gravett, b 1862, died 1 May 1930 in Lonoke Co AR. He married Rose Elsa Steele on 9 October 1904. She was born in AR on 16 February 1884, daughter of James Benjamin Steele and Minnie Ila Turner, and died 15 November 1973 at Coy, Lonoke Co. They had seven children. (W,1367r)

h.     Alexander Gravett, b 1839, was not found in 1860. (185n)

Vincent Gravett's 1868 probate records in Madison Co named his siblings:Jesse Gravett, Loudouck Gravett who married Melvina Parvin in 1833, Eli Gravett who married Martha East in 1838, Mary Gravett who married George H Dupree in 1829, Nice Gravett who married a Mr Roberson, and Susan Gravett who married John V Parvin in 1837. That probate record made no mention of Obadiah Gravett who married Polly C East's sister Elizabeth H East, so the conclusion must be that Obadiah Gravett was probably a cousin to Jesse. And from the persitantly common name of Vincent Gravett which kept being used as the name of Jesse's Gravett's brother (1868 probate), and in the following generation, then it would be likely that the parent of Jesse Gravett was Vincent Gravett Sr. (M89, M92, JF,JY,185n,48mp,1367q)

        Mary Caroline East [E14a1d2], daughter of Joseph E East and Frances Nations, was born 10 November 1840 in Hempstead Co AR. She married Benjamin Bailey Fincher on 26 October 1862 in Nevada Co.

        Mary Clark East [E10d4h], daughter of William David East and Caroline Frances Moore, was born 6 December 1859 in Prince Edward Co VA. She died in the late 1920s, unmarried. In 1900 and 1910 she lived with her brother Joseph. (SS,368quv)


        Mary Cleo East [E4c6c1d4b1], daughter of John W East and Nancy E Slaughter, was born in February 1887 in Wayne Co KY (age 24 in 1910, 32 in 1920, 43 in 1930). She married Edward E Mercer in 1910 and they lived at Kelley, Wayne Co. In 1910 there were no East names nearby. Edd was born 22 October 1873 at Mill Springs, Wayne Co, son of Oliver Perry Mercer and Roda Jane Corbett, and died at Pulaski, Wayne Co on 10 November 1955. Cleo died in Wayne Co on 22 December 1966.

a.     Ella May Mercer, b 11 Dec 1916 at Kelley, Wayne Co KY. She did not marry, and died at Monticello, Wayne Co on 23 September 1998. (M,125bwf)

b.     Ed F Mercer, b 28 Mar 1920, died at Hardinsburg, Breckenridge Co on 4 August 1996. (KYd,125bf)

Mary used her middle name Cleo most of her life, and must have been the Cleo East who married Mr Mercer. Mary C, daughter of John W East, was Mary C East in the 1900 census, then was not seen afterwards using her first name. There were only four East women in Wayne Co in 1900 who were born in the years around Cleo East's birth year: Mary C East, daughter of John W, was born in 1887; Mary's sister Hattie L, born in 1888; Ethel L East, daughter of George A, born in 1885; Verdie F East, daughter of George A, was born in 1888; and Maggie East, daughter of Andrew T, was born in 1887. Mary C was the only one with a middle initial C, and Maggie East had married Porter Price and lived in Wayne Co for years with the Price name. Also, when Cleo died, her name was shown to be Mary C Mercer. Hence, Cleo must have been John W East's daughter. (W,M,JY, 125svwfd)


        Mary E East [E4a2a7a6], daughter of Thomas East and Elizabeth West, was born 4 June 1839 in Campbell Co VA (age 20 in 1860, 29 in 1870, 30 in 1880). She had not married by 1870 nor 1880.

George was born in May 1835 at Jacksboro, Campbell Co, son of Daniel Asbury Petree (1797 TN) and Mary Meador (1804 TN), and died in Campbell Co on 19 September 1902. Mary died 13 October 1898 and was buried in Fincastle United Methodist Church Cemetery. George, a widower for the second time, lived in Campbell Co in 1900 two doors from his brother-in-law Joseph Richard East and wife Sallie Petree. Daniel Asbnury Petree (1797 TN) was a brother of Isaac Campbell Petree (1804 TN), father of Sallie Petree who married Mary East's brother Joseph. So Mary's husband George Petree was a first cousin of Sallie Petree. George's first marriage was with Mary Ann Green in Campbell Co on 3 April 1855. She was born in 1835 and died in Campbell Co in 1884 after seven children. (W,25k, 720qr,721smu)

In 1830 in Smith Co TN, two of the three Marsh families in the county lived next to the Joseph Isham East family. The third Marsh, Charles Marsh, was the only family of age to be Joseph's parents. In 1840 Joseph and Elizabeth lived in Smith Co two doors from Elizabeth's father and three doors from her brother Andrew Jackson East [E4c3a3b7]. In 1850 they lived in Macon Co TN.

        Mavel East [E4b], daughter of Thomas East Sr of Henrico Co VA and Dorothy Thomas, was born about 1671. She married John Robinson on 10 June 1690 in Henrico Co and her father gave her a gift (a marriage gift?): "1/5 of a tract taken up by me, Robert Woodson, Sr., John Woodson, William Porter and Robert Clarke, 106 acres on the south side of White Oak Swamp, now is possession of John Robinson who married said Mavell East." John Robinson sold the land in 1696 and in 1704 Marvel Robinson relinquished her dower right. John Robinson was born about 1670 and died in 1721; his will was proven in July 1721.

        On 1 August 1704 "John Robinson of Henrico Co, planter, sold to Thomas East Jr of same," 404 acres on the north side of James River for 500 pounds of tobacco plus £3/6. John's wife Mavel relinquished her dower right. A 16 May 1737 sale of 106 acres by "Thomas East of Hanover Co, son and heir of Thomas East, Sr of Henrico Co, dec'd," to Sackvil Brewer of Henrico Co for £10 was for land on the south side of White Oak Swamp. The land was granted to Thomas East dec'd, William Porter, John Woodson, and Robert Clark. The land was "formerly given by Thomas East dec'd to his daughter Mavel East for life, which term being expired, land reverts to said Thomas East as heir at law." This Thomas of Hanover Co was Mavel's brother, and the transfer by Thomas to Brewer shows that Mavel had recently died, and the land then reverted to her brother Thomas, whereby he sold it to Brewer. Mavel had died on 8 August 1734 in Henrico Co.

        On 4 June 1753, John Roberson Jr. (III), of County and Parish of Henrico, blacksmith, sold to William Stone of New Kent County, planter, 130 acres bounded by Alexander Roberson, David Bins, James Cocke "it being all the land given by deed by my grandfather to my father John Roberson Sr." Signed, John Roberson Jr. (III) Wife Anne relinquished her right of Dower. This deed further identified John Jr. (III) as the grandson of John (I) and "Mavell East Robinson." On 1 July 1753, John Roberson Jr. (III) sold Martin Martin (both of Henrico County) 106 acres on the south side of White Oak Swamp for 40 pounds, "being a 1/5 part of a tract of land taken up by Thomas East Sr., Robert Woodson Sr., John Woodson, William Porter and Robert Clarke and given by the said Thomas East unto his daughter Mavell, grandmother to the aforesaid John Robinson (III) by deed bearing date 1690."

        Milley East [E1e], daughter of John East and Frances Harston of Pittsylvania Co VA, was born in the 1770s in Pittsylvania Co or in Henry Co VA (Henry Co was formed from Pittsylvania Co in 1776). She married John Mattox before 1800, for in that year John & Milley Mattox and William East testified in court in Henry Co. Also, in an 11 October 1814 court record Milley's mother Frances, and heirs Joel Pace, John Mattox, Joseph East, David Rea and Thomas East were named in matters concerning the division of the estate of the late John East (Book 2, Pages 67, 109, 236, 259). Since John Mattox, David Rea and Joel Pace were named as heirs, this established that they were spouses of the daughters of John and Frances. If Milley and John had any children, it is not known. (M92,RC)


        Millie East [E1b13k7], daughter of Thomas Nathaniel East and Ada Johnson, was born 19 October 1904 at Pima, AZ. On 28 November 1921 she married Eleck Leon Kelley about 1922 and in 1968 weres living at Safford. He was an auto mechanic and was born at Pima, AZ on 2 November 1895. His parents were William B Kelley and Lucy _____. Elick and Minnie had at least two children, both born in AZ-

a.     Carmen Kelley, b 1923 (311f)

b.     Ruf Kelley, b 9 Mar 1925 at Safford, Graham Co. (311bf) (NL,EP,M, 311b)


        Millie C East [E23b7], daughter of Thomas H East and Mary Catherine Jourdan, was born in 1866 in Cumberland Co, or Roane Co TN near Rockwood. She married James R Coleman on 21 November 1891 in Roane Co and they lived at Rockford. He was a house carpenter, born in 1867 in SC. Millie apparently died at the birth of her first child, and James married Millie's sister Susan Emma East [E23b6]. Millie and James had a daughter-

1.     Grace G Coleman, b Sep 1892 (19u) (19rsumv)


        Millie Mae East [E14a4d3i], son of Jesse Houze East and Virginia O Burnett, was born in 1914 in Walton Co GA. (466w)


        Milly East [E14a6], daughter of Joseph East and Milly _____, was born about 1798 in northeast GA. She married John Parker on 18 January 1814 in Clarke Co GA. Mars Hill Baptist Church records in Jackson Co GA (later was in Clarke Co and is now in Oconee Co GA because of county boundary line changes), show that she was dismissed by letter on 16 April 1814 because she had recently married John Parker (Jr) and would be living in Hancock Co, just south of Greene Co. This John Parker (Jr) was a son of John Parker and wife Patience of Edgecombe Co NC and later of Hancock Co and Greene Co GA. John, husband of Milly, died in early 1835 in Hancock Co, and afterwards Milly lived with her son Martin. John's estate records named six children; Benjamin F Latimer was appointed the guardian to manage the property of five children listed below, while John L Par was appointed to be manager of the property of John and Miilly's daughter Rachel. Therefore, all six children were minors (under age 21) in early 1837.

        In the 1850 census of Hancock Co, five of the six children were living together, and their ages ranged from 30 to 16. This made the eldest born in 1820, six years after Milly's marriage to John Parker, which is not likely. Therefore, the one missing child in the 1850 home, William, must have been the first born, and born before 1820. The six children were-

a.     William Hawar Parker, b 15 Dec 1819

b.     Rachel Parker, b 1823

c.     Joseph East Parker, b 5 Feb 1824

d.     Martin O Parker, b 1828

e.     Matthew Parker. b 1830

f.     Elizabeth Parker, b 1834

To help keep the two John Parker's straight, Milly's husband was one of five children of John and Patience Parker: John Parker Jr who married Milly East above, Elizabeth Parker, Mary Parker, and Charlotte Parker. The last two daughters were minors in 1800. In 1820 widow Patience Parker was in Greene Co in 1820 when she won the state land lottery for Lot 76, Sec. 6, Habersham Co GA. John Parker, husband of Patience, was a son of John Parker and Mary _____. John and Patience lived in Edgecombe Co NC in the late 18th Century, and after selling his land there between 1784 and 1790, moved of Greene Co GA. (PW)

About 1855 he moved to Lawrence Co AR with his step-mother and his father. Milton gave his father's birth place as VA in the 1910 and 1920 census.

Milton then married Mrs Mary Davis on 25 May 1899, and when she died he married Clara Catherine "Kate" Ketner, a widow, on 26 December 1901. She was born about 1873.

        N C East [], parents unknown, was living with the Simeon Hatcher family in East Felicia Par LA in 1850. Mr N C East was born about 1817 in LA, and he might have been just a hired farm hand since there was another young man also living in the Hatcher home then. Neither young men were listed as if they were sons-in-law. In East feliciana Parish in 1850, there were 128 homes with East people in them. OIn 1840 there were just two,and neither hjome had anyone who could be Mr N C East. (104n)


        Nancy East [E4c3a2c], daughter of Thomas East and Mary _____ of Stokes Co NC, was named in her father's 1807 will, so she was alive then, and she was an East, not with a married name. She was probably born around 1770 and lived in Stokes Co or Surry Co NC. (76p)


        Nancy East [E4c1a2d], daughter of Benjamin East and Nancy Ann Pruitt, was probably born in the 1770s in Goochland Co VA. She married Martin Strong in Goochland Co on 26 December 1799. It is here assumed that Nancy is a daughter of Benjamin and Nancy Ann because another daughter (Mary) also married a Strong, two and a half years prior, in Goochland Co. The only East families in the county in the 1790s were Benjamin's and Nancy Ann's family. Since Nancy's mother was named Nancy Ann, it would be quite common for a daughter to have the same name. There was a marriage in Goochland Co on 30 May 1802 between Ann East and William Elliott. If this Ann was Nancy Ann East, and if her first marriage was with Martin Strong, then Martin must have died and Nancy Ann married again to William Elliott. The only other daughter of Benjamin and Nancy who could have had a middle name Ann and married Mr Elliott was Martha, and there is no evidence that happened. There was a Martin Strong family living in Hanover Co VA in 1810, and the ages of this couple fit the ages of Nancy and her husband. Hanover Co is the county northeast of Goochland Co. (M92, JY,556m,23h)


        Nancy East [E13a1a], daughter of James East and Martha Clarkson, was born 1 February 1779 in VA, probably Louisa Co.

In 1850 they lived in Augusta Co's district 2½, family 1452. Timothy's was the only Hartigan family in VA in the pre-1840 years; in 1850 there were some of his descendants in Botetort Co. Timothy and Nancy had at seven children, the first six born in Augusta Co VA-

1.     Mary Hartigan, b 1800

2.     Patsy Hartigan, b 1801

3.     John W Hartigan, b 13 Mar 1803

4.     David C Hartigan, b 1808

        Nancy East [E4a3a1g], daughter of Joseph Cannon East and Martha Cockerham, was born about 1789 in Surry, NC. Common belief was that she was the Nancy East who married John Marsh in Surry Co on 13 November 1817, but that Nancy East was born about 1800. (W,240n)


        Nancy East married James Parker on 21 December 1805 in Accomack Co VA. (M94)


        Nancy East [E4c6c5d], daughter of James East and Lucy English, was born in 1794 in Lincoln Co KY. She grew up in Lincoln and Garrard Counties, and married James M Estes in Garrard Co KY on 15 November 1819. James was born in Lincoln Co on 2 May 1798. James Estes and his wife and children were living in Lincoln Co in 1830. Since they were not found in 1820, James and Nancy were probably living with one of their parents then.

        In 1840 they were in Lincoln Co (as James Estis), both born in the 1790s. Their children in 1840 matched closely to the children's ages of 1830, and later of 1850. In 1850 James and Nancy were still in Lincoln Co KY. Their ages were shown as 52 each, both born in KY. There were children in their home ranging in ages from 29 down to 10. In addition, there was a 5 year old James M Snow, a 66 year old James East (born 1784), and a 24 year old Joseph Fletcher living with them. James Snow was there also in 1860, and Joseph Fletcher lived next door in 1860. Everyone was born in KY. This same James East was also in Lincoln Co in 1840, living alone and age in the 50s. James Estes died in Lincoln Co in August 1868 and Ñancy died in 1865. Nancy and James had six children by 1830, and about six more born after 1830-

In 1850 there was an unknown Richard Estes living with Nancy and James. He was born in 1825 in KY; his birth year does not match any son from the 1830 and 1840 census since son James C filled that position. (W,359mh,124jn)


        Nancy East [E4c1a3d], daughter of Josiah East and Rebecca Caldwell of Laurens Co SC, was not at home in 1810, and not married by August 1818 (or was married to an East?) when her father's will was written. (M92,3h)


        Nancy East [E4a3z1], parents unknown, lived in Surry Co NC. She was born in 1800 in NC and had married John Marsh in Surry Co on 13 November 1817. Minor Marsh (born 1757 in NC) provided the marriage bond, and he was probably John's father or brother. John was born about 1795 in Surry Co. Nancy lived in Surry county for the rest of her life, and had children. Minor Marsh lived between William Venable and son Thomas Venable in 1810 in Surry Co. John Marsh (and Minor Marsh) lived in Surry Co in 1820; he was born between 1795 and 1804, as was his wife, and they had a son under age 10. Next door was Minor Marsh, who was age over 45 then (born before 1776). In Surry Co in 1820 were just three East families: John, Joseph, and Chandler East. In 1830 the only John Marsh in the area was in Surry Co. That John Marsh was born in the 1760s, and his wife was born in the 1800s; They had a daughter under the age of 5 in 1820. That same John Marsh in 1840 lived in the same neighborhood, had four sons and three daughters, and his wife was born in the 1790s. She outlived him, and was a widow in Surry Co in 1850. She was born about 1800, so was very likely not a daughter of Thomas East. But she could easily be a granddaughter. (W,240mhijkn)


        Nancy East [E4a2a4b], daughter of Isaac East and Joyce Pemberton, was born 18 November 1802 in Pittsylvania Co VA and moved to Adams Co OH when she was a girl. She married William Nichols on 6 January 1819 in Adams Co. He was born in Pittsylvania Co on 10 February 1794. William fought in the War of 1812 against the British and Nancy received a war pension of $8 per month. In 1830 they lived at Fairfield Twp, Butler Co OH (census page 15), four counties west of Adams Co. Nancy's sister Rhoda and her husband James Cox and their two sons also lived in Farfield Twp, Butler Co that same summer.

        In 1840 in Bartholomew Co IN, both Nancy and Nancy's husband William Nichols were found. Living a few doors away was James Cox (and wife Rhoda East). This Nichols family's name was then Nicholson in error, but living next door to William Nicholson was (widow) Sarah Awalt; Sarah's son William married Nancy East's daughter Mariah in 1841, thus identifying the William Nicholson family as actually William Nichols.

        In 1860 they lived at Union, Davis Co IA a few doors from, her sister Rhoda. Nancy died in Union Twp Nodaway Co MO on 18 March 1885. They had seven children, all born in OH, before they moved to IA and MO-

        Nancy East [E4c3b4c], daughter of John H East and Mary Ann Burch, was born about 1803 in NC (age 10-15 in 1820, 45 in 1850, 57 in 1860, 70 in 1870, 80 in 1880). She married Joseph True Arnold in Surry Co NC on 1 September 1827. The marriage bond was paid by her brother Hughes East. Joseph was born in 1806 in VA (age 43 in 1850, 54 in 1860, 69 in 1870). They remained in Surry Co and did not move to IN in the late 1820s when Nancy's family did. They lived close to two Burch families in 1830. Soon after 1830 they did move to Indian Creek, Monroe Co IN. In 1850 two doors away was Henderson T Laffoon [E4c3a2b1e] and his family. In 1860 they lived at Adams, Parke Co IN, and in 1870 were at Riley, Vigo Co. Joseph died in the 1870s and Nancy moved in with her son Paris, living at Irving, Montgomery Co IL.

        Nancy East [E4c5a4d], daughter of Joel L East and Rebecca Lofton, was born 27 December 1809 in Laurens Co SC. She moved to Caldwell Co KY with her parents when she was a child. There is no marriage record for a Nancy East in this area of KY before 1850, so she probably died there. (W,3h,538i)


        Nancy East [E4c5a2h], daughter of Thomas East and Nancy Caldwell of Laurens Co SC, was born 23 March 1815 in East Feliciana Parish LA. She married Luke Lea in Copiah Co MS on 18 March 1832; Thomas East was the bondsman.

        Nancy East [E4c6c3a8], daughter of Josiah East and Sarah Ann Storms, was born in January 1823 (age 32 in 1850, 38 in 1860, 57 in 1880, 77 in 1900) in Garrard Co KY. She married Elbert Gentry Bolton in Garrard Co KY on 1 August 1836. Elbert was born about 1816 in KY (age 34 in 1850, 42 in 1860, 60 in 1880), son of John Bolton (born NC in 1786) and Sally _____ (born VA in 1793) who lived three doors from Elbert in 1850. When first married, Elbert and Nancy must have lived with her parents since the only Bolton Family in the 1840 census was Elbert's father John Bolton, and young adults of Elbert's and Nancy's ages weren't in that household. People of their ages, including their baby daughter Sarah, were in the Josiah East home. Nancy and Elbert lived in Garrard Co for many years. He died by 1900 but Nancy was still in Garrard Co at Buckeye, living close to some of her sons and nephews; her grandson Willie Bolton lived with her in 1900.

He was living with the A J & Sarah Bilyen family (ages 30 & 21) in 1860 (on 4 September 1860) (On 10 September 1860 a James Gee lived with his brother Aaron in Lawrence Co AR — perhaps this person was not the right James Gee since he was two years too young.). In 1870 he was still in Linn Co, but living with Andrew and Mary E Miller (ages 41 & 22), working as a farm hand. In 1870, James and Mrs Miller claimed they were born in KY.

        Nancy East [E4a3a3a3f], daughter of Isom East and Susannah Johnson, was born in 1871 in Greenup Co KY. She was not found after 1880. There was no marriage record for a Nancy East in IN in the late 1880s to 1900, nor in the Lincoln Co KY area. (124s)

1.     ‘Albert W Lampbright, b 1858, never married and was living alone in Lincoln Co in 1920. (W,37qrs,39vw)

2.     Catherine Elizabeth Lampbright, b 1864, had not married by 1920. In April 1920 she was single, living at home with her brother Albert (he was also single), and her widowed mother in Lincoln Co. (W,37rs,39v)

They lived in Lincoln Co for years; in 1900 Warren's parents lived close by. Myra claimed that she was age 43 in 1930; this would put her birth year at 1887, just eight years before her 1895 marriage. Hence, she was probably born in 1877. That also agrees with her claim that her first marriage was at age 18. They had three children born in Lincoln Co-

        Nancy Elizabeth East [E4a3a6d10], daughter of Thomas East and Nancy Ann ____, was born on 11 January 1836 in Giles Co TN.

They moved to Webster Co MO in the 1850s, and in 1860 and in 1870 they were living in Lawrence Co AR where Reuben was a farmer. He was born in Giles Co in 1832, son of Alfred Seagraves (1808 NC) and Martha D Grimes (1817 TN), and died in November 1870, probably in Lawrence Co where his estate was probated.

        Nancy Elizabeth East [E4c6c5f2f], daughter of Neal East and Mary DeWeiss Prather, was born 25 March 1857 in Lawrence Co IN. She married William Haggard about 1876. He was born in 1855. Nancy died in 1883. They had two children: Jesse Haggard, born 1877 and Delia Haggard, born 1879. This preceding information was from East family records, obviously written down from memory a generation or two after the event happened. At the same time, Haggard family records show similar information, but without as many incorrect guesses for dates. The Haggard family info stated that William Harvey Haggard married Elizabeth East, and later he married Mary Ayier. Haggard records also had an accurate East-Haggard marriage date, and had William Haggard's parents' names. The East family had an accurate birth date for Nancy Elizabeth East. In combining the two sets of family information, and adding census records and other standard genealogical source records, we now have a revised set of information: Nancy Elizabeth East, born 25 March 1857 in Lawrence Co IN, married William Harvey Haggard on 7 February 1878. William was born 8 July 1852 in Lawrence Co, son of James A Haggard and Nancy Cole. Soon before 1880, Elizabeth and William moved to Evan, Kingman Co KS where William's parents were living. About the time William and Elizabeth arrived, William's mother died and his father then moved in with William and Elizabeth. At this same time, living next door was Elizabeth's next older brother J W (Joshua W) East, age 24, and cousin John Prather, age 28, who had lived with Elizabeth and her siblings for at least twenty years. Because of these two next door neighbors, we can be sure that this Elizabeth East was the same Nancy Elizabeth East who we know was a daughter of Neal East of Lawrence Co.

        Elizabeth died in the early years of the 1880s, probably at Evan, KS and early in 1884 William then married Mary E Ayier and they moved to Whipple Creek, Clark Co WA about 1890. She was born in MO in November 1862 and died in Clark Co WA in the 1910s. After Mary died, William lived with his son Jesse and Jesse's wife and children at Salmon Creek. William died at Ridgefield, Clark Co WA in 1935. Between the two marriages, there were five children; only one was Elizabeth's-

1.     Cordelia Haggard, b 1879 in Lawrence Co IN, probably moved to WA state with her father and step-mother about 1890, and married there. (W,766s)

From William H Haggard's marriage with Mary Ayier, they had four children: Nancy E Haggard, born November 1884 at Haven, Reno Co KS, married by 1910; Jesse Louis Haggard, born 26 October 1886 at Haven, Reno Co KS; Millie W Haggard, born May 1893 at Whipple Creek, WA, plus another child born soon after 1900 and who died young.

Much of the information of Nettie came from obituaries, descendants, and the Web; her family was missed in the 1910 census, and Nettie married before the 1920 census. Hence, she was not on any census record with her parents. (W)


        Newman East [E19a2i], son of Zealous Ray East and Mahuldah Armour, was born in April 1850 in Randolph Co AL. He was not a child in his parent's home in 1860, so he had probably died in the 1850s in Randolph Co AL. (47nq)


        Nimrod East [E4c6c3d], son of Cornelius East and Mary Hannah, was born about 1796, probably in Lincoln Co KY since his father lived there since 1790 or before. He married Martha Patsy Skidmore in Lincoln Co on 8 April 1816; his father provided the surety, and Sally Skidmore gave consent. Witnesses were Abraham Jones and Payton Skidmore. Nimrod's youngest daughter Sarah Jane, in 1900, claimed that both her parents were born in VA, yet Martha's 1850 census records shows that she was born in KY. In 1820 at Crab Orchard, Lincoln Co Nimrod and Martha lived next door to his father, and three doors from the homes of David East and Joseph East. In 1830 he and Martha lived in Casey Co. Nimrod died in May 1832 in Casey Co. In the 1830s Nimrod's widow and all her children moved to Rives Co MO (the county name was changed to Henry Co in October 1841). She had married Robert M McFall, probably in the 1830s. He was born in 1795 in VA; it did not appear that Robert and Martha had children. In 1840 in Rives Co she and her husband (R McFall in the census) and her children lived two doors from D East who was born about 1801; this was Nimrod's brother David East. Martha was born in 1798 in KY, and Robert was born in VA in 1795. Martha and Nimrod had seven children, all born in KY-

In 1900 widow Rosa Rode was living with Elisha and Nora. Rosa was age 20, born in NE in November 1879, and was called a daughter-in-law. (ST,L,B,117qr,118Nsu)

        North East [E4c6c2], son of Josiah East and Eleanor _____, was born about 1760 in Louisa Co VA. He was list on a 1787 Lincoln Co VA Personal Property tax list (see note below), and was found on the Madison Co tax list of 1789 and 1790. In 1787 he was taxed for three horses and two cattle. North was a Lieutenant in the 7th Regiment (Madison Co) of the KY Militia on 9 August 1792. (Kentucky Co VA became the state of Kentucky on 1 June 1792.)

        North married Karenhappuch Peyton in Lincoln Co on 1 March 1786; the marriage was witnessed by Jesse Wright, John Arbuckle, and Edward Low. Karen's actual given name was a biblical name. She was a daughter of Phillip Peyton and Winifred Bussell, who gave their permission. Karen was under age 21, born after 1765. They lived in Wayne Co (two counties to the south, next to TN) from 1810 until he died there at Meadow Creek by 10 February 1815 when his heirs sold the land they inherited from North's estate. Karen died about 1811. North and his son (or brother?) Daniel were in Captain Micah Taul's Company from Wayne Co in the War of 1812, and North was a member of the KY House Of Representatives in 1807.

        North East [E4c6c5b], son of James East and an unknown mother, was born between 1785 and 1794 in Lincoln Co KY or VA (Lincoln Co was a VA county in 1790). He was living in Wayne Co KY in 1810, two counties south of Garrard Co. His brother Isaac may have been the second adult male in North's home in 1810. He was not found after then. There are tax records of a North East in late 1780s and in 1790 in Madison Co and Lincoln Co VA (the part which became KY in 1792); this was for North East [E4c6c2], eldest son of Josiah East and Eleanor _____, and who was an uncle of the younger North East. There was a marriage in Lincoln Co KY on 14 August 1810 between North East and Elizabeth Dickerson. She was under age (born after 1790), and her mother Elizabeth gave consent. This North East may have been North East [E4c6c2], son of Josiah East. The only other record found of a North East who might have been related to this North East was the 1840 Hempstead Co AR census. He was a son of William East [E14a1] and Rachel Castleberry, and was born in 1806. North East, born about 1790 in Lincoln Co was not found after 1810. (W,M52,BG, 125h)

North died in Hempstead Co in 1848 by the 19th of September when his brother Joseph became the sole executor of his estate. Rachael later married Bennett Mitchell in Hempstead Co, on 10 November 1850. In the June 1850 census she and her children were shown living with Bennett and his children from his prior marriage, so apparently he "made and honest woman out of her" when they married a few months later. In 1860 she was using the East family name, and Bennett was not with her, but she had a nine year old boy, David M East; he apparently was the son of Rachael and Bennett. North and Rachael had six children by the time he died in the late 1840s, Note that there were only two families with the East name in Hempstead Co in 1850: North's brother Joseph, and these six East youngsters living with 60 year old Bennett Mitchell.. They had to be the orphaned children of North. All were born in Hempstead Co-

On 9 January 1824 in Pittsylvania Co she was married to James King by Reverend Shadrack Mustain and her father posted the marriage bond. The James King (Sr) family was a next door neighbor of Obedience's sister Sarah in 1820 in Pittsylvania Co. In 1830 Obedience and James lived next door to her father, with James King Sr two doors away. It's highly likely that James King Sr was Obedience's father-in-law; in 1820 there were two sons in his home of James Jr's age group, and after James Jr and Obedience married, there were none, plus they lived two doors apart in 1830. James Jr was born about 1805 in Pittsylvania Co. Six years into their marriage they had three children. In 1840 their close neighbors were her father and younger sister Permelia in one home, her twin brothers Ezekiel Jr and Henry in one home, her elder sister Sarah, and her future step-mother Mrs Mary Thurman. Obedience died in the 1860s and James was living alone in 1870 (age 65). In 1880 in Pittsylvania close to the Staunton River, in James' home were his daughter "E Hagewood" age 50, and four Hagewood grandchildren.

        Quincy Cincinatus East [E4a2a4h6], son of Thomas East and Priscilla McCracken, was born 26 May b 1844 at Locust Grove, Adams Co OH. Quincy entered the Union Army on 25 May 1861 at Jacksonville, IL as a Private in Company H, 14th Illinois Infantry, and mustered out on 18 June 1864. He fought in the Battle at Shiloh, TN on 6 April 1862; the Battle at Metamora, TN on 5 October 1862; the Battle at Memphis, TN on 21 November 1862; the Battle at Vicksburg, MS on 22 June 1863, and other battles on 16 July 1863 and 27 February 1864. After his discharge, Quincy enlisted on 14 July 1864 at Philadelphia, PA as a landsman in the Navy. He served on the Princeton to 31 July 1864; on the Mingoe to June 15 1865; on the Princeton to 27 July 1865; on the Bermuda to 22 September 1865; on the Princeton to 30 September 1865; on the Champkin to 15 June 1867; and was discharged from the Brooklyn on 11 September 1867 as a fireman second class. According to the various military documents, Quincy contracted malaria, diphtheria, dyspepsia, had rheumatism and piles while he was serving in the military. There were times when his muscles twitched from the pain, and his abdomen burned. There were affidavits written by members of his old regiment, and from Thomas Wheatly East, and from Albert Campbell East, Quincy's cousin and brother-in-law in 1898 attesting to Quincy's medical problems.

        Quincy married his second cousin Harriet Parker East [E4a2a4j8] in August 1878 at Covington, KY. Harriet was born 2 November 1855 at Locust Grove, Adams Co OH.

Quincy died 26 August 1917 at Dayton and was buried on the grounds of the home where he died. His widow Mary did not have enough money to have Quincy buried in the local cemetery. And since she married Quincy after 1906, the cut-off date for a marriage for wives of military men, she wasn't entitled to government compensation for his burial as a widow. But local congressmen pleaded with congress, and Mary was then given enough for Quincy to be re-buried in Woodland Cemetery. He and Harriet had two children-
