I am curious about your connection between Denny & Watkins. Mind telling me?  Thanks!

Lott IVEY (father-in-law to my Green B. HILL) was mentioned in a deed (see below):

SURRY COUNTY, NC DEED BOOK K, P. 267, 5 Nov 1804
Henry
WATKINS of Surry to Joshua
DENNY of Surry, 50 Pounds currency of said state, 50 acres on the SW side of the Tarrarat River; it being part of a grant made to Lot IVEY, the river being the conditional line.

Henry WATKINS (Seal)
William HILL
Duly proven in Surry Co. Court Nov. Term 1804 by oath of William HILL one of the subscribing witnesses thereto ordered to be registered. Test: Jo Williams, CC; by Jo Williams, Junr, D.C.

The
DENNY family had three members who married HILLs in Surry Co. NC, and I am trying to put any possible clues from WATKINS, DENNY, HILL, etc together to find a possible connection for my Green B. HILL to this HILL family. We know he was in Surry Co. NC, and the DENNY connection to Lott IVEY is intriguing.

Thanks!

Subj: Our Watkins family of Surry County, North Carolina!

From: LeePreston To: Wat-sc@watkins.org.au


Following are some Watkins records in land deeds of Surry County, North Carolina.  The significant name DENNY appears in the following Watkins deeds:  B-281, F:360, K-267, T-46, V-247.   Based on these records, together with all other evidence we have collected, there should be no doubt that Joseph Watkins, Sr., (d.ca.1827, Pickens/SC) is the same Watkins shown in the Surry/NC deed records.  We also now know that his daughter, Jane, who is shown in his typed will copy as Jane Demry, clearly is Jane Denny.

Others in the family with time, strength and motivation, will serve the family well by adding to and correcting my efforts here.  I welcome anything new and additional about the Pickens/SC -- Surry/NC Watkins connection.

Subject: [Wat-sc] On the trail of ancestors of Joseph Watkins,Sr.'s (d.ca.1827, Pickens/SC)


For those who are still with me on the Pickens/SC --> Surry/NC trail of Joseph Watkins, Sr., of Pickens/SC, can we take another leap?

Surry/NC was created in 1770 from Rowan/NC.   In the 1759 Rowan/NC tax list it shows the following names who appear in Surry/NC land deeds 1783 and later:

... William DENNY and negro ...
... Jas. WATKINS ...
... Henry WATTIN ... [This HAS to be WATKINS!]

Logical genealogical conclusion would identify these as the men of the same name in both counties -- Rowan/NC prior to 1770 and Surry/NC after 1770.

We now have our Watkins line and the accompanying Denny line back to Rowan/NC 1759 (don't we?)......

Rowan/NC was created 1753 from Anson/NC.
Anson/NC was created 1750 from Bladen/NC.
Bladen/NC was created 1734 from New Hanover/NC & Bath/NC.
Etc......

Corrections, additions welcome.   Lee Preston

Lee, I wrote to you several years ago about the connection of Stokes, Rowan, and Surry counties in NC and I pursued this until family events interfered with my research.  I saw enough in Surry at the time to believe that there was a connection of the Joseph Watkins, Sr. family to Surry.  .The following is info I collected at that time and I have more in my notes somewhere which I will attempt to find later.  .

“The families in Pendleton and Greenville Districts were from Stokes County, NC., originally Rowan County, where they lived in the 1770’s.”

 “Capt. John Kees was granted land on Tugaloo 10 Jan. 1787, which he sold 5 Feb. 1801 to David Barton. He, Jacob and Elijah Kees were in Pendleton in 1790.  Peter Keys and wife, Lettie, and John and Joshua Keys lived some distance away in what is now Anderson County.”  Pg. 34

1800 Census of Pendleton District, South Carolina, Compiled with an introduction by William C. Stewart, Foreword by Carleton E. Fisher, published by National Genealogical Society

I recall reading also that a man named Cleveland organized a group from Rowan County to migrate to the Tugaloo River area of the Pendleton District.

 

These are census records I have to date but don’t vouch for it being a thorough search of these NC counties.  I recently sent some of this to Lois and it appears that she has been following up on it.

Lois:  Great and wonderful!  Don't let Sandy get away.   She may turn out to be even closer than a "kissin' cousin."    I am sure I remember seeing one census record in SC in 1810 which said Barnett Watkins.   The same person in another record said B. H. Watkins.   Now, I am operating from my memory on that, but it would seem to tie in with Sandy's belief that James was in Pendleton/SC in 1800 (which shows a James in 1800 census there).

Lois, you deserve another medal.   Where are you keeping all of them?

I rec'd a letter recently from Sandy Otis ( cgoslo@earthlink.net ) about her James Watkins "b. 1748 and was in Rowan Co. NC, SC, then old Franklin Co. GA, Hall Co. GA, and died in Benton Co. AL."  I invited her to visit our Watkins webpage.  So what do you think, folks?  Lois
 
COPY/PASTE
Hi Lois, I also think we have some sort of connection with the Wadkins. It is puzzling. I have found many more children for James Watkins b. 1748 and his wife Mary Griffin. I would be glad to share those with you. I have been thinking that my James Wadkins/Watkins was in the Pendleton area in 1800. From there he went to Franklin Co. part of which later became Hall County. For his children I have Matthew; Griffin, Barnett, John Griffin, Vincent,  Mary, Rhoda, Rebecca and Jane. I had thought Nellie and Virginia were his daughters, but Watkins was their married name, and they were Tolberts. The children married Tolberts, Hendersons, Timmons, Eppersons, Davis, and Watts.
 
I don't know if you see any connections yet.  My James Watkins was from the Dan River area of Rowan Co., NC.  Sandy

This is new to me.  Thank you for sharing.  I am going to post it on the Watkins & Denny webpages.  If I am not mistaken, Sarah Denny being the daughter of Azariah Denny & Sarah Wise Felton is without question our Joshua Denny's sister.  See, every little thing counts.  Again, thank you!

Watkins -- Habersham/Lumpkin Counties, Georgia


In trying to identify whether Henry
Watkins in 1830 census Hab./GA, p.42 is or is not the son of Thomas & Margaret Watkins, these clues should be evaluated:

The property which Henry
Watkins, Pickens/SC sold to Abner Watkins Hab./GA 13 Aug 1832/Recorded 17 Oct 1833, Lumpkin/GA Deed Book A, p.223, Lot 96, Section 1, 125 acres, was located in that part of Habersham/GA which became Lumpkin/GA on the latter's creation in 1832.  The Grantor, Henry Watkins is presumed to be Henry Watkins, Sr. of Pickens/SC, rather than any other Henry Watkins.

Abner W., Lumpkin/GA sold the above Lot 96, Section 1, 125 acres, recorded on the above same date 17 Oct 1833, Lumpkin/GA Deed Book A, pp. 223 & 224, to Howel & Jeremiah Freeland.

Henry
Watkins, Lumpkin/GA sold one-half of Lot 853, Lumpkin/GA Deed Book ?, pp. 124 & 125, 3 Sep 1834/Recorded 1 Oct 1834, to Sennett (?) D. Freeland. There was a signature "mark" on this deed from Henry, similar to a capital I or Roman Numeral one (I with bar across top and bottom).   This Grantor Henry Watkins was of Lumpkin/GA and hence was not Henry Watkins, Sr., of Pickens/SC.

This was the only timely Henry
Watkins recorded in Habersham and Lumpkin/GA, and he is shown living in this location for 60 years, 1830 (Habersham), 1840, 50, 60, 70, 80, 91 at his death (Lumpkin).   In 1850 census Henry & wife Evaline were next door to Barroch (Berrick) Watkins, the ancestor of Howard K. Watkins.  Berrick was proven son of Thomas & Margaret, as no other Berrick Watkins is known except the one named in the Thomas & Margaret Bible.  Also a few doors away was Margaret & Philamen Watkins.   Philamen was also named as son in Thomas & Margaret's Bible.   Henry and Evaline W. were living in between Berrick and Philamen Watkins, both sons of Thomas & Margaret.   Margaret's age in the 1850 census was incorrectly shown as "50," but she is the same Margaret who was Thomas W.'s wife.....   See the 1860 census Lumpkin/GA, where Margaret is shown as 75, living in the household of the same son she was with in 1850, Philimon (spellings vary).

In various of the documents which Margaret filed with the U.S. Government in  Lumpkin/GA in connection with her and Thomas' 1812 Pension eligibility, Henry 
Watkins signed with her.    There was no other Henry Watkins in Lumpkin/GA other than her son, Henry W., who was stated in her Bible to have been born 12 Mar 1803, a date which matches his ages in the censuses of 1850 (47), 1860 (56), 1870 (67), 1880 (77).

Back to the Freelands, to whom both Abner and Henry W. sold the above-described properties:  In the 1860 census, Henry & Evaline W. have in their household, Alexander Freland 14 and Lucinda Freland 8.  While the census record showing the Freeland/Freland children living with them does not identify their relationship to Henry W., it does place this specific Henry
Watkins with the Freeland family to whom he sold property in 1834 and with the Freeland children in his household in 1860.  Since there were no other known Henry Watkins in Hab./Lumpkin, Georgia, the Freeland connection spanning the period 1834-1860 is clearly significant that this would be the same Henry Watkins in 1834 and 1860.

I do not believe that any bona fide lineage society in the U. S. would refute the evidence pointing to the Henry
Watkins of 1832 Hab./GA being the same person who was named as a son born 12 Mar 1803 in the Bible of Thomas and Margaret Watkins, and who lived the rest of his life in the same general locale where he was shown circa 1830.
