Back to Scarborough’s of Barbour Co., AL

Back to Scarborough’s of Russell Co., AL






            Excluding spouses and Scarborough children who are mentioned only in census data, the Barbour County research summary includes about 62 Scarborough individuals and the Russell County summary has another 42 individuals.  For convenience, those reports list them alphabetically by given name, but it will help to see these names in context.  Here, to provide such a framework, I offer a set of six descendancies at the tops of which are the progenitors of major groups of Scarborough’s.  Interestingly, five of these groups (separate family lines, or “clades” as a statistician might call them) are known or very likely to be descended from the “Eastern Shore” Scarborough’s of Virginia which came through Edgecombe Co., NC, in the 1700’s and Burke Co., GA, in the late 1700’s before migrating to/through Georgia on their way to Alabama (see Jewell Scarborough’s “Southern Kith & Kin” for an excellent introduction to these families).  The sixth one (James E. Scarborough) is not well known to me; his parents came out of Virginia and we may yet learn that they connect to the Eastern Shore group.  Collectively, the five sets of “Eastern Shore” Scarborough’s encompass nearly 80% of the individuals described in the two reports.


            Some important caveats should be noted:


(1)   Of course, not all of these Scarborough individuals or family lines ended up in Barbour or Russell County, Alabama.  However, it is from these families that the vast majority of Scarborough’s in these two counties are derived.


(2)   These descendancies should NOT be taken as definitive; they are only presented here as a starting point for discussion.  They are the best that I can construct from my own research and the most logical (to me) that I can recognize from the multitude of published online family trees.  Not surprisingly, there is conflicting information and there are many lingering discrepancies among various versions of the same information.  While I suggest for each descendancy where (i.e., from which researchers) I pulled most of the data, no endorsement of one variation over another is implied and I take responsibility for any errors I may be perpetrating.



(Note:  When I learn how to construct web pages better, this list of appendices will have hot links to the beginning of each family tree.  For the time being, with apologies, you’ll just have to browse up and down through the document to get to them.  Each of the appendices is relatively short.)





APPENDIX A:                  Descendants of Addison Scarborough

APPENDIX B:                  Descendants of Ephraim Scarborough

APPENDIX C:                  Descendants of Aven Scarborough Jr.

APPENDIX D:                 Descendants of Ichabod Scarborough

APPENDIX E:                  Possible Relationship of Noah, James A.,

                                              and Hardy Franklin Scarborough

APPENDIX F:                  Descendants of James E. Scarborough







            Addison Scarborough (m. Josie Howell) belongs to the Edgecombe Co., NC, clan  described in great detail by Jewel Scarborough in her “Southern Kith & Kin”.  Born in VA in about 1754, he is named as an heir (son) to David (m. Sarah) Scarborough who left a will in Edgecombe Co., NC, in 1774 (the elder of two David’s who died and left wills there just a year apart).  The other David Scarborough in that area (m. Nanny Dunn?) left a will in Edgecombe Co., in 1775.  The connections of the two David Scarborough’s have not been proved to anyone’s satisfaction; they may be uncle and nephew.  Hypothetically if that were so, then Addison would be a 1st cousin to the younger David Scarborough (m. Nanny Dunn?) who is a close kinsman (possible progenitor) to the Aven and Ichabod Scarborough lines (Appendices C & D).  The descendancy below is drawn from a number of posted family trees and discussions and remains somewhat speculative.  There are also other Addison’s, and the relationships of the various Addison’s, James’s, Noah’s, and Hardy’s are among the most confusing in the Scarborough jigsaw puzzle.  A search of the Scarborough GenForum (on for any of these given names will lead into the multitude of discussions on this set of Scarborough’s.

            I believe it is this Addison’s line that is often refered to as the “South Carolina” Scarborough’s since they resettled in that state (Sumter Co.) by the 1780’s when other kinsmen were settling in (or getting ready to move to) Georgia.  Nonetheless, Noah and other family members migrated to Georgia (e.g. Houston Co.) before descendants made their way into Alabama.

            With respect to Barbour Co., AL, there seems to be only one descendant from the present list who shows up in public records, that being James Noah Scarborough, son of George W. Scarborough.  See Appendix E for a different (?) Noah Scarborough--with probable sons James A. and Hardy F. Scarborough--who were more prominent in public records.

            Substantial portions of this outline are drawn from descendancies posted by Cynthia McDaniel and Dianna Rogers; my thanks to them for letting me carry their work forward here.

            Ephraim (also spelled Ephram and Ephriam) Scarborough heads up another line of descendants from the Edgecombe Co., NC/Burke Co., GA, clan.  Although not named as an heir of David (m. Nanny Dunn?) Scarborough in the latter’s will in Edgecombe Co. in 1775, he is nonetheless closely associated with that family in Edgecombe Co. and later in Georgia.  He could be an unnamed son of that couple.  He witnessed a deed of this David Scarborough in April 1772 (implying that Ephraim was born no later than 1751); Miles Scarborough witnessed a deed of Ephraim’s in 1774, and William and Addison Scarborough both witnessed a deed of Ephraim’s later the same year.  Along with William Scarborough, Ephraim received payments from Miles Scarborough (Executor) from the estate of David Scarborough in 1778.  He received land grants in Washington Co., GA, in 1797 and 1799.

            Ephraim’s grandson David M. Scarborough grew up in Laurens Co., GA, and was executor of his father’s estate there in 1830-32.  He moved to Stewart Co., GA, just across the river from Barbour and Russell Cos., AL, by 1835.  There is a David Scarborough on the 1833 Alabama State Census of Barbour County, but I’m not certain who that is; see my notes on these David’s in the present report.  One David M. Scarborough was enumerated in Russell Co., AL, in 1840 but died soon thereafter.  His estate records are in Russell County, filed by his presumed wife Nancy, Administratrix.  In 1843, while she was still handling David’s estate, Nancy married her second husband, Nathanial Roach who held property in Barbour Co. at the time.

            Jean Blackmon posted a series of fine articles on this family line on the Scarborough GenForum (Aug. 21, 1999, #471-475); the present descendancy is constructed mostly from that information.  Hiram may not be a son of David and Comfort since Comfort was guardian for a Hiram Scarborough (which?) in 1831 in a sale of land.  The placement of William Henry Scarborough here is from Tascar Williams and the placement of Charity Rhoda Scarborough & Richard Bracewell is suggested by Theresa Reynolds.  Another family tree posted by Cynthia McDaniel shows Samuel Scarborough Jr. (b. 1760 in Southhampton Co., VA) & Lydia Hines with sons David, Drury, Daniel Newman, and Hiram (along with sons John H. and George W.).  That would seem like quite a coincidence and this set of brothers may be misplaced in one or the other tree.

            This descendancy has mainly been constructed from my own research since this is my family line.  Aven Jr.’s father, my 3-great grandfather Aven Sr., was born in May 1791 in Burke Co., died in 1873 in Clay Co., AL, and is undoubtedly a descendant of the Edgecombe Co., NC/Burke Co., GA, Scarborough’s.  Aven is a close contemporary of Ichabod Scarborough (see Appendix D).  Isaac Turner has hypothesized that Aven Sr. may be a son of Allen Scarborough based on later movements of Allen’s descendants.  However, based primarily on the patronymy I find in Aven’s family (e.g. a son named “William Miles Scarborough”, etc.), I currently suspect Aven Sr. is a son of either Miles or William Scarborough of the Burke Co. set.  Aven Sr. and Ichabod conceivably could be brothers or first cousins.

            Aven Sr. & Elizabeth (Davidson) Scarborough and many of their children arrived in Russell Co., AL, from Georgia prior to the 1850 Federal Census, however, most of them relocated north to Randolph/Clay County by 1860 and eventually to Marshall County, while others trekked to Texas by the mid-1850’s.  Aven Jr. & Miley (Mathews) Scarbrough were still in Sumter Co., GA, in 1850 but apparently moved to Russell Co. just a few years later.  Among all of Aven Sr.’s children, apparently only the family of Aven Jr. (who was killed in the Civil War) and his widow Miley Scarborough remained in the Barbour/Russell/Lee County area into the late 19th Century and 20th Century.

            This descendancy was modified slightly from Jan Allison’s “Families in the Deep South” family tree online at  Researchers Linda Nelson and Cynthia McDaniel have other variations.  Ichabod Scarborough is definitely among the Edgecombe Co., NC/Burke Co., GA, Scarborough’s but his precise ties to that group have not been confirmed to anyone’s satisfaction.  Ichabod Scarborough is believed to be a son of one of the several Burke Co., GA, Scarborough’s who received land grants there in the 1780’s and 1790’s; these include Aaron, Allen, Arthur, Miles, Moses, Samuel, and Shadrack.   There is, unfortunately, no documentation as to which it might be.  Ichabod and Miles Scarborough are associated with one another in several transactions there in the 1780’s and 1790’s and in Wilkinson County, GA, in the first decade of the 1800’s.  Ichabod died in Wilkinson Co., GA, in about 1831.  The daughters of Ichabod Scarborough are all placed here with the caveat that apparently none have been proven in official records. (from Joyce Harrison’s summary of Ichabod Scarborough, used by permission)

            Among the descendants of Ichabod Scarborough and Sarah Warren, Jasper H. T. Scarborough is the most prominent in Barbour County records, but others are likely to be represented (needs investigation).

            My 3-great grandfather Aven Sr., born in May 1791 in Burke Co., is a close contemporary of Ichabod Scarborough.  Aven Sr. and Ichabod conceivably could be brothers or first cousins.

            As mentioned earlier, the various Noah Scarborough’s present one of the most complex and confusing puzzles in Scarborough genealogy.  One researcher speculates that the James A. Scarborough listed below has a middle name of “Addison” which would seem to tie the present clan to one or another Addison Scarborough (of which there are several).  A number of family trees posted on’s Ancestry World Trees show the Noah of the present clan to be (1) of Houston Co., GA, (2) the husband of Margaret Jossey, and (3) the son of Addison Scarborough & Josey Howell.  While there seems to be some logic and symmetry in that placement, Cynthia McDaniel and others have posted substantially different descendancies for that Noah, son of Addison.  For the time being, the placement of the present Noah clan remains a mystery to me.  The descendancy below is modified slightly from one posted by researcher Dianna Rogers.

            From just the records in Barbour and Russell Counties of Alabama that I researched, it is clear that there is a cluster of kinsmen including Noah (deceased--may not have lived in either county), his minor daughter Francis (over 14 yrs old in 1854), Hardy F. Scarborough (presumed son of Noah and guardian of Francis; married Malvina Bryan), and James A. Scarborough (who married Mary Ann Bryan).  James’s son John F. is represented briefly in Barbour County records (as J. F.; a marriage license and several indenture notes for loans).  However, I found no other estate records or other official documents which explicitly describe the relationships of these Scarborough’s.

            This lineage was unfamiliar to me prior to my Barbour County research trip.  I still don’t have much information on them or know quite how they fit in, if at all, with other major Scarborough lines.  James E. Scarborough was born in Georgia of parents who were from Virginia; he was a dentist in Chambers Co., Alabama.  I’ve found the family in selected Federal Censuses from 1860 onward in Chambers Co., but I haven’t found their Georgia or Virginia origins.  The family is described briefly in “The Heritage of Barbour Co.” (2001, p. 534 & p. 614-615); their connection to the county mainly appears to be through Charles Phillip Scarborough Jr. and Charles Phillips Scarborough III.
