Martha Susan Summers was the daughter of Jeremiah Summers and his wife Elizabeth Baker.  Elizabeth was the daughter of Charles Baker and his wife Mary Alford. These are among the first families to Missouri. I have several of the early generations of their history.

The Baker family was named Becker but after they Americanized their name they became Baker.

The earliest marked known grave in Randolph County, Missouri is the one of Mary, wife of Charles Baker, died 2/22/1824 age 60 years. She is buried about 3 miles west of Huntsville, MO in what was once Randolph Springs, MO.

Charles Baker and Mary Alford were married 10 Feb 1786 in Montgomery Co., VA. The Baker family came from Strausburg, Germany to Germantown in Lancaster Co., PA, then they removed to the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. And from there they went to Randolph Co., MO.

The Alford family lived in Wythe Co., VA.

 

My line is in yellow highlight.

Benjamin Hancock Jr. and his wife Elizabeth Vickery were my 3rd Great Grandparents. They lived and died in Wayne Co., KY. Elizabeth was the daughter of Francis Marion and Mary (Broyles) Vickery. The Vickery family also lived in Wayne County, KY. Francis Vickery b. abt 1765, md 22 Sept 1787 Randolph County, NC to Mary Briles, dt. of Michael and Susannah Broiles.

Francis Marion Vickery was the son of John and Bethiah Vickery. John was a Rev. War Solider. He did his service in North Carolina. They lived in Randolph County, NC.

A question has arisen about the name of John Vickery's wife. So far nothing factual has come to me to document that Bethiah was or was not John's wife. One researcher writes that she thinks John Vickrey's first wife was Margaret Jenkins, but she provided nothing but hearsay to back up her claim. If you have facts to document the wife of John Vickery, please let me know. Some of the records that I have are second-handed on John Vickery so I am very willing to listen to anything factual on this issue.

Hancock Family

Rev. G. B. Hancock and wife Mary Minerva Burris are buried at Mars Hill Cemetery, Sholton, MO - near Crane, MO. Rev Hancock was a pioneer minister in Barry County, MO.  

Rev. Hancock wrote a book entitled Mormonism Exposed in or about 1902. It was about the debate that he had with some Mormon leaders in Fayette, PA.  There is an original copy of the book in our family. It is signed by G. B. Hancock and was given to his daughter Clara Elizabeth (Hancock) Berryhill.

MY LIFE IS AN OPEN BOOK

 

 

Benjamin and Sarah Lane Hancock were my 4th Great Grandparents and my line goes through Benjamin Jr. and then to Golman Buford Hancock. Benjamin Hancock was a Rev. War soldier who came to KY for land.

[On his application for pension for Revolutionary War Service, George Dabney of Wayne Co., KY stated that Esquire Benjamin Hancock and William Hancock knew about his record as a soldier. He also stated that he was living in Bedford Co., VA when he entered the service. The William Hancock he was talking about was probably the William who was married to Sarah Harmon and the son of John D. Hancock, because that William was living in Wayne and would have been the approximated age that George Dabney would have been or was. George Dabney was also referenced in his application others, too, and mentioned that his father was Cornelius Dabney who had been living in Bedford Co., VA at the time of the Revolutionary War.  James Turner and the Postmaster Berry of Wayne Co., KY were both mentioned as some other people who knew about his service record, too. In the pension record for James Turner, he made reference to George Dabney in his application. George was an officer and James was a private, and in one of the files it was mentioned that George Berry was a Major. Benjamin Hancock didn't have a pension record because he had a bounty land warrant, but he was referred to as Esquire in Dabney's application.]

Descendants of Benjamin Hancock

1 Benjamin Hancock 1710 - 1762 b: 1710 in Sussex Co., Virginia d: 1762 in Goochland Co., VA +Jane 1710 - b: Abt. 1710 d: in Goochland Co., VA m: 1732 in New Kent County, VA [Jane may have been Jane Armager. There were Armager families living in Goochland and they appear to have been related to the Wade families of that area.]

2 John D. Hancock 1733 - 1802 b: 1733 in Albemarle Co., Virginia d: November 10, 1802 in Patrick Springs, Patrick County, Virginia +Elizabeth Maddox 1732/33 - 1805 b: January 03, 1732/33 in Fluvanna, Virginia d: 1805 in Amherst County, VA m: October 16, 1755 in ST James Northam, Goochland County, VA [He may have helped with writing of the Declaration of independence. They are the ancestors of the Corn family who tell a similar story about the Declaration as do the descendants of Benjamin's family. His son William  was referenced in the George Dabney Revolutionary War application for a pension. He stated that William Hancock and Esquire Benjamin Hancock of Wayne County, VA, would remember and know about his military service. He stated at the time he enlisted that he was living in Bedford Co., VA. One of his children mentioned his old uncle Armeger.]  

2 Thomas Hancock 1736 - 1803 b: 1736 in Virginia d: December 05, 1803 in Franklin County, Virginia +Mary Shoemaker 1735 - b: Abt. 1735 in Virginia d: in Franklin Co., Virginia m: March 25, 1758 in Goochland County, Virginia

Judith's husband was captured with them at Boone's Lick, and so she is thought to have been a sister to the Stephen and William.]

2 Benjamin Hancock, Sr. 1740 - 1811 b: Abt. 1740 in Bedford Co., Virginia d: 1811 in Gap Creek, Wayne Co. Kentucky +Sarah Lane 1735 - 1815 b: 1735 in Henrico Co., Virginia d: Bet. 1815 - 1820 in Wayne Co., KY m: February 23, 1765 in New Garden MM, Guilford Co., NC [Descendants of this line told the Declaration story, as it was a brother named John who was connected to the story. One of the Vickery uncles thought this John Hancock was the signer and so it looks like he was probably fooled by the John Hancock name. In the pension declaration of George Dabney he mentions that Esquire Benjamin Hancock and William Hancock know of his service record. They lived in Wayne Co., KY. Dabney said that he was living in Bedford Co., VA, when he enlisted. This William mentioned was a son of John D. Hancock.]

2 Agnes Hancock 1741 - b: 1741 in Goochland Co., Virginia +Stephen Hicks 1741 - b: Abt. 1741 m: August 24, 1758 in Goochland Co., Virginia  [Uncle John Hicks was mentioned in the text of Rev. Golman Buford Hancock's' notes. I don't know how he was related to this family, but perhaps was.]

2 Elizabeth Hancock 1741 - b: 1741 in St. James, Northam Parish, Goochland Co., VA +John Sanders 1738 - b: Abt. 1738 m: October 23, 1758 in Goochland, Virginia

2 R. Major Hancock [aka Armeger] 1742 - 1839 b: 1742 in Fluvanna Co., Virginia d: November 10, 1839 in Clay County, MO +Anne Thomas 1749 - 1780 b: Abt. 1749 d: Abt. 1780 in Goochland Co., VA m: October 16, 1765 in Goochland County, VA *2nd Wife of R. Major Hancock: +Mary Moreland 1764 - 1810 b: 1764 in Goochland County, Virginia d: Abt. 1810 in Greene County, Tennessee m: September 05, 1781 in Goochland County, VA  [His name may have been Armager/Armiger since there are deeds for the Armager family and there are other documents for this family name in the Goochland area. An old uncle named Armager was mentioned in the Corn document - establishes connection to the Wayne Co., KY families.]

2 Marianna Hancock 1742 - b: 1742 in Goochland Co., VA +William Woodhall 1738 - b: Abt. 1738 m: December 03, 1758 in Goochland Co., Virginia

2 Stephen Hancock 1744 - 1827 b: 1744 in Virginia d: September 1827 in Bonhomme, St. Louis Co., Missouri +Catherine Merchant 1745 - 1800 b: Abt. 1745 in Virginia d: Bet. 1800 - 1805 in Madison Co., KY m: Abt. 1765 [William and Stephen are documented brothers. Judith's husband was captured with them at Boone's Lick, and so she is thought to have been a sister to the Stephen and William.]

2 Judith Hancock 1750 - 1810 b: 1750 in Virginia d: October 05, 1810 in Wayne Co., KY +Richard Wade 1752 - 1844 b: October 26, 1752 in Goochland County, Virginia d: February 07, 1844 in Wayne Co., KY m: November 08, 1772 in Goochland Co., Virginia [It appears that the Wade family was related to the Armager families of Goochland. There are documents that tie the Wayne Co., KY Hancock family with Judith's family.]  [William and Stephen are documented brothers. Judith's husband was captured with them at Boone's Lick, and so she is thought to have been a sister to the Stephen and William.]

There are documents that tie Judith, Armager, John, and Benjamin Hancock together. The families of Armeger and Wade have documents that suggest a kinship with the Hancock families of Goochland.
