Haplogroup E3a - Haplogroup E3a is an Africa lineage. It is currently hypothesized that this haplogroup dispersed south from northern Africa within the last 3,000 years, by the Bantu agricultural expansion. E3a is also the most common lineage among African Americans

 

My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.

 

Red is the County lines and Parish Lines: These lines can and will change people in a County or in a Parish. This is to serve as a Time line to show changes, in lines or in changes where families moved to from this area.

 

Teal is being used for Quaker dates, these are not the same as the Julian Calender for all the other information, these need to be transcribed to be used in a Julian Calender.

 

Quaker dates have not been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the year was March. From: Mary E. Stewart  

 

In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck

 

Rose Color is for Haplogroup R1b1   -Haplogroup R1b is the most common haplogroup in European populations.

NUTBUSH CREEK: This report is about the Johnson-Johnston families of John Johnson who bought his lands from John Robertson who is reported to have been married to Mary Gower the daughter of ? John Johnson’s lands of Nutbush creek will be sold by Terisha Johnston whose 2nd wife is Susannah Turner who is the off spring of Len Henley of Tuckahoe Creek in 1730 era, and also the Granddaughter of Terisha Turner the Ancient who signed the will of John Sorrell. John Sorrell lived by Charles Johnson in 1730 era.

NOTES: DISAGREEMENT ON MARY GOWER MARRYING JOHN RANDOLPH ROBERTSON: THIS LINE IS IN DISPUTE

It also outlines the family of Len Henley Johnson who died in Humphreys Co. Tn and his family starting with John Johnson who is deceased by 1793 as Stephen Johnson, Terisha Johnson and John Johnson are selling off these lands on Nutbush Creek.

There is also a Miles Johnson connected to Nutbush Creek in 1773. The Nutbush Creek is found first in deeds of Brunswick Co. then to Lunenburg County and to Mecklenburg County Va. This creek is part of the border of Virginia and North Carolina. The North Carolina deeds are first found in Granville County NC, and then to Bute County NC to Warren Co. NC and then into Vance Co. NC, thus making it hard to trace families as this is a border creek of two states with several County line changes in each State.

This report starts with the survey of Nut Bush Creek and the State lines of Virginia and North Caroline being Surveyed by on Colonel William Byrd, Then it moves on to John Robertson the father of General James Randolph Robertson co founder of the Washugual Settlement with Col. John Chapman Donelson.

General James Randolph Robertson owned lands on Big Creek prior to him and Col Donelson moving into the Washugual Settlements. Two things come to light. In 1783 Hudson Johnston bought his lands in Carters Valley Washington Co. NC from Stokley Donelson the son of Col. John Donelson. Rev. Thomas Murrell’s church was on Big Springs. By 1803 Hudson Johnson is in Williamson Co. Tn.

The Iron Furnace on Bartons Creek in Stewart Co. Va, where Hudson Johnson settled in 1803 after leaving Williamson Co. Tn. The Iron furnace was owned by General James Randolph Robertson

Another thing of Interest is the Sims families of Carter’s Valley that Hudson Johnson lived by are the same family tree of Simms families that are on Nutbush Creek in Mecklenburg Co. Va and Nutbush Creek in NC. These Sim’s families are the Syme’s families of Capt. John Symes and his half brother Patrick Henry, coming off his cousin lines of George Adams married to an Isham

NUTBUSH CREEK  JOHNSON AND ALLIED FAMILIES

 

October 1st. There was a white frost this morning on the ground, occasioned by a north-west wind, which stood our friend in dispersing all aguish damps, and making the air wholesome at the same time that it made it cold. Encouraged therefore by the weather, our surveyors got to work early, and by the benefit of clear woods, and level ground, drove the line twelve miles and twelve poles.

 At a small distance from our camp we crossed Great creek, and about seven miles further Nut-bush creek, so called from the many hazel-trees growing upon it. By good luck many branches of these creeks were full of reeds, to the great comfort of our horses. Near five miles from thence we encamped on a branch that runs into Nut-bush creek, where those reeds flourished more than ordinary. The land we marched over was for the most part broken and stony, and in some places covered over with thickets almost impenetrable. At night the surveyors, taking advantage of a clear sky, made a third trial of the variation, and found it still something less than three degrees, so that it did not diminish by advancing towards the west, or by approaching the mountains, nor yet by increasing our distance from the sea; but remained much the same we had found it at Coratuck inlet. One of our Indians killed a large fawn, which was very welcome, though, like Hudibras' horse, it had hardly flesh enough to cover its bones. In the low grounds the Carolina gentlemen showed us another plant, which they said was used in their country to cure the bite of the rattle-snake. It put forth several leaves in figure like a heart, and was clouded so like the common Assa-rabacca, that I conceived it to be of that family.

14th. Being at length happily arrived within twenty miles of the upper-most inhabitants, we despatched two men who had the ablest horses to go before, and get a beef killed and some bread baked to refresh their fellow travellers, upon their arrival. They had likewise orders to hire an express to carry a letter to the governor, giving an account that we were all returned in safety. This was the more necessary, because we had been so long absent that many now began to fear we were, by this time, scalped and barbacued by the Indians. We decamped with the rest of the people about ten o'clock, and marched near twelve miles. In our way we crossed Nutbush creek, and four miles farther we came upon a beautiful branch of Great creek, where we took up our quarters. The tent was pitched upon an eminence, which overlooked a wide piece of low grounds, covered with reeds and watered by a crystal stream, gliding through the middle of it. On the other side of this delightful valley, which was about half a mile wide, rose a hill that terminated the view, and in the figure of a semicircle closed in upon the opposite side of the valley. This had a most agreeable effect upon the eye, and wanted nothing but cattle grazing in the meadow, and sheep and goats feeding on the hill, to make it a complete rural landscape.

John Robertson was living in Prince George County in 1738 when he obtained a certificate for wolves killed.  Beginning in 1743, John Robinson and his wife began to buy and sell land in what is today Mecklenburg County.

400 acres on Nutbush Creek and the county line 12 July 1750.  John Robinson and Mary sold their 180-acre patent to John Johnston in July 1752.

 

John Robinson and his sons appeared in the 1749-52 Lunenburg County tithe lists.  Edward and Robert were living with their father and the others were on their own. http://www.virginians.com/redirect.htm?topics&1600

1760 July 15 John Johnson has the most references of all the Johnsons. He is listed in the patent book 34, page 583 for 404 acres on Nutbush Creek adjoining John Robinson ( july 15 1760).

The 1764 tithable list has John with 180 acres of tithables. He is listed with Michael Johnson on the List.

A John Johnson appears on the tithable list for 1764 that is seperate from the other list for that year with 200 acres. Not clear if this is the same John Johnson. Rotsweb.com Mecklenburg County posted on Jan 1 2003 by Roberta source is Early Settlers of Mecklenburg County.

John Robinson

Notes: John Robinson and ? Mary Gower are the parents of General James Randolph Robertson who will own the Iron Furnace on Bartons Creek, which he bought from Montgomery Bell, when this land was in Stewart County. Hudson Johnson a whiskey maker from NC buys lands on Bartons Creek in 1803 Stewart Co. but when he gets there this land is in Dickson Co. Tn a new County.

Mary Gower is she the daughter of Abel Gower and I think Jane Hatcher ?, If so this lines descends from William Hatcher the Immigrant of Swift Creek Henrico Co., whose one grandson is Edward Hatcher Jr, in 1690 living on Tuckahoe Creek, Henrico Co. Va : This line is idisputed

It was not, he said, the "form of government, nor yet the body of our laws, that we are quarreling with, but with the malpractices of the Officers of our County Courts, and the abuses which we suffer by those empowered to manage our public affairs." Extortionate fees and oppressive methods of collecting fees and taxes formed the burden of his complaint. He called upon the people to meet for a discussion of reform, but the only result of his appeal was a petition to the assembly for redress of grievances which was stillborn. http://www.rootsweb.com/~ncalaman/battleofalamance.html

Thomas Williams

1762 Aug: Died: John Daniel IV died at Nutt Bush in August 1762 and Mrs. Daniel's brother-in-law, Samuel Henderson, became a surrogate grandfather-guardian to the Harrison's boys. The Henderson lived in a large home on Nut Bush Creek near present Williamsboro. A believer in cultural education, Henderson had established a school for his 11 children and then employed a second tutor to teach them French. A dancing master also was frequently in residence at the Henderson home. Nut Bush communicants attended St. John's Episcopal Church (still extant at Williamsboro) near the home of Judge John Williams, nephew of Mrs. Henderson and law partner of the Henderson's eldest son, Richard. (Both John Williams and Richard Henderson became justices of the North Carolina Supreme Court.)

 Sarah (Patsy) Daniel, was the daughter of John Daniel IV and his wife, Anne Williams, or Caroline County, Va. They were second cousins, and both were descended from the immigrants John Daniel I and John Williams I, who settled on Queen's Creek in York County, Va. in 1645. Their families intermarried and became connected with the Keeling, Fleming, and Henderson families of York and New Kent whose ancestry has been traced back to Magna Carta Sureties and the Roll of Battle Abbey through the Fleming line. As prominent members of their communities, they served on vestries and in various gov. offices. John Williams II built Studley on the Pamunkey River in New Kent County which later was sold and became the birthplace of Patrick Henry. John Daniel III of York County died in 1722 and left a plantation with slaves in Hanover County to his son, John Daniel IV, who had married Anne Williams, daughter or John Williams Ill and his wife, Mary Keeling, of York. John IV and Anne (Williams) Daniel were living on the Hanover plantation at the time of his father's death, and their daughter, Sarah (Patsy), probably was born in Hanover about 1725. 11cr brothers and sisters were John Williams, Martha, Elizabeth, and James Daniel. John Daniel IV sold the Hanover plantation in 1732 and moved to Goochland County where he became involved in a court case two years later with his wire's nephew,John Williams. he lost the case and in disgust moved to Caroline County to join his brother, Williams Daniel, the owner of a mill on Beverley Run. John IV took over operation 0f the mill, leaving Williams free to delve into politics. A tobacco rolling road was built from Daniel's Mill to the warehouse on the Rappahannock River, and traffic became so heavy there was need for a tavern (hotel) on the route. In 1741 John Sneed was issued a license to operate a tavern at Daniel's Mill, and this brought many young men to its premises. Sarah Daniel's sister, Elizabeth, married Christopher Dudley of Caroline in 1742, and about 1743 Sarah married John Harrison.

RESEARCHERS NOTES:

 

Cousins Greetings:

 

 I am wondering if any of you might have in you OLD E-Mail addresses an addy for One Toby Turner: He authored a report on Terisha Turner the Ancient and its generations after him. Also the Researcher on Charles Johnston who was in Humphreys Co in 1812 ( Peg had contact with him)

 

Terisha Turner was on Rockfish Creek of Albemarle County and this area became Amherst Co: (Same area as SURNAME of Hooper's, Hatchers, Johnson, Shropshire, Murrell's, Thornton's and Allied Hatcher Families see reports on Rockfish Creek)

 

Several Things are sticking out in Toby's report they are on the Rockfish River area

 

On August 14 1750 James Ireland sold to Terisha Turner 147 acres N.Fork Green river for L13-7-6: Christopher Anthony Patents 20 Aug 1748 (Albemarle Co Deed Book 1 pages 220-221) He (Terisha Turner) Lived in Albemarle County in Oct 1751 when he and his wife Sarah sold to Michael ROWLAND of Cumberland Co: the same 200 acres at the Heads of Deep Run a branch of Muddy Creek adjoining William Ferriss and Nicholas Davis (Cumberland Co. Dee Book 1 page 442)

 

Notes: Rowland Chiles, Blackmore Hughes ( hues) lived beside William Johnson on Buffalo Creek, and Hudson Johnson-Johnston lived with him in one Tithable Year of 1778-1780 how does Michael Rowland Connect back to Henry Chiles married to a ? Rowland Female ( This is the Family of Walter Chiles Ship owner in 1650 era of Jamestown) AS we now have Off Spring of Walter Chiles in the St. Peters Parish living next to Michael Holland ( era of 1730)

 

Terry Turner patented 400 acres paying L2 in Albemarle County on the North side of and adjoining Rockfish River near the river bank at a broad Rock on the side of a Mountain adjacent to John Burns Sr. and Jr. on Sept.. 1755 in Patent Book 31 pg 687: Source Cav and Pioneers: Abstract of Virginia Land Patents and Grants Vol Vl 1749-1762 by Nell Nugent page 1141.

 

In Amherst Deed Book B page 75 John Dunn paid him (Terry Turner) L3 for 100 acres on Sept 16 1765.In the Amherst Deed Book Page 54:

 

John Lyons purchased 100 acres for L36 on Sept. 24 1765 from Terisha Turner said to be of Albemarle Co:

 

In the Albemarle Deed Book # 4, pages 426-427 Terisha Turner of Amherst is shown to have sold 147 acres for L30 to John Moore of Albemarle Co:

 

On Oct 5 1770 Terisha Turner of the parish and county of Amherst Co paid L 155.o to John Scott and Margaret ( Fry) his wife for 1557 acres on the branches of Parroge (sic) Creek.

 

Notes a John Scott is connected descendants of Michael Johnson as their attorney and a John Scott is married to Sarah Mayo off the Mayo Lines in Dickson and Humphrey's County

 

Terisha Turner and his wife Sarah sold the Hardware River Tract to Peter Cheatham in 1777, At that time he was described as a Citizen of Amherst Co: He was also the owner of several hundred acres on Briery Ford of Green Creek, which in 1790 he sold for the most part to Benjamin Harris:

Notes: Which one of Mine and Pegs Cheatham Lines is this?

 

Old Terisha Turner died owning several thousand acres, not only in Virginia but in North Carolina as well: He called himself "ANCIENT" in his will written May 7 1793 and proved April 19 1802 ( Amherst Will Book 4:34)

 

Now what is interesting is Several of Terisha Turners Children and Grandchildren Marriages some are in Warren County NC ( Formed from Granville and Butte Counties)

Stephen Reuben Turner who died before his Father in 1799 Warren Co. NC This is the Father of Susannah Turner married to Terisha Johnston who died aft 1840 in Henderson Co. Tn: Also of Note is the Hamner's are related to Col William Eaton of Mecklenburg Co and to the Rives- Reeves Families

 

James Turner the Brother of Stephen Reuben Turner born CA 1735 died 1806 in Amherst County was married to Rebecca Hamner daughter of William Hamner and Mary Henley : This is also a connection to Len Henley in Goochland Co. Deeds who lives by ? Johnson. What is interesting is Rebecca Hamner was born  1765 in St. Anne's Parish Albemarle County:

 

1744 March 15: Leonard Henley: Goochland Co: 30 acres on the Branches of Tuckahoe Creek: Land Office Patents @ 22 1743-1745 vol 1 & 2: pg 220 on reel 20: Library of Virginia Archives section.

 

Notes this is Grandfather of Len Henley Johnson off Lines of Terisha Johnston of Mecklenburg and Warren Co NC of Nutbush Creek:

 

Also on James Turner brother of Stephen Reuben Turner in his (James Turner ) died 1806 will he leaves the Rockfish River property to his Son Terisha Turner

 

Now to a Grandchild Marriage Nancy Turner mar John Thurmond bef. 1816 the Thurmond Name is a Connector to the DNA off Michael Johnson died 1718 on Tuckahoe Creek: Benjamin Thurman married a ? JOHNSON  off lines of Michael Johnson:

 

Now to Researcher Toby' Turner’s notes on Stephen Reuben Turner: married to Susannah Hamner Oct 9, 1764 daughter of William Hamner and Elizabeth Henley (Hendley) in 1799 Warren County this will is signed by Tho. C. Hillard, Daniel Johnson, Anderson Tucker (Tucker is bhm) : Toby indicated Stephen Turner was on Totier Creek in Albemarle County before he moved to Amherst Co: So he moved with his father onto properties on Rockfish River: ( My Notes)

 

What I find Interesting is Children of Stephen Turner ( Col McDaniel's Cousin Lines)

James Turner married Molley Allen Jan 14, 1799 in Warren Co. NC

Elizabeth Turner b Feb 1, 1775 married ROWLAND THORNTON Dec 18 1797 in Warren Co. NC:

 

My Notes: HOW DOES THIS CONNECT TO Charles Johnston whose wife Sarah Eaton was first married to John Thornton and had children by him: Now Remember the Thornton's married to this are off Francis Thornton whose relatives are intermarried with the families of George Washington

Sarah ( Sally) Turner b March 27 1781 married Moses Thornton Dec 23 1800: again how does this connect back to John Thornton who also owned lands on Rockfish River in what was Goochland Co to Albemarle County to Amherst Co then he goes into Prince George Co- which becomes Brunswick County. JOHN THORNTON died in what was then Butte County with lands next to Charles Johnson ( also of Granville Co) this whole area ends up in Warren County which is just below Mecklenburg County.
