Heard Family

Adelle Bartlett Harper wrote What's Your Family Line? Her work is in question for she said the the Heard family is related or is to the O'Neil family there is NO Prove that they related. If Google the O'Neil family History the Heard family is never mention!!!!!

Adelle Bartlett Harper states that "Stephen came the next year bringing his wife, Lady Mary Faulkner of Wales, who eloped with him in order to marry." WRONG! We Know that this NOT TRUE for Stephen married Mary Faulkner in PA and move to Virginia. We Know that Mary Faulkner never had the title Lady for she never came from Royals that had the title Lord or Lady. Mary Faulkner we know that her father were Thomas Faulkner and mother Mary Ferree. Thomas was NOT a Lord of Wales!!!!!! Google Lord Faulkner of Wales and you see this not him!!

Historical collections of the Joseph Habersham chapter, Daughters ..., Volume 2 By Daughters of the American Revolution. Joseph Habersham Chapter (Atlanta, Ga.), Lucy Cook Peel this Heard family that they talking about his not our Heard family He talking about Heard family in 1800s

Adelle Bartlett Harper because of her early work on Heard family has been prove WRONG but the Line of Stephen and Mary Faulkner children, Children is right. DO NOT TAKE HER FAMILY BACKWARD TO EUROPE AS THE TRUTH FOR IT IS WRONG.

At the bottom of this page I posted Heard family Bible's that I found in a book.The name of the book and I found there I add to bottom of this page. Janet

States this Much confused and erroneous information has been passed around and published about this family. Among the misconceptions, the one most often seen is that the immigrant ancestor was John, the Earl of Tyrone in No. Ire, wife Margaret McDonald, and a 2nd wife Esther LaPeirrre in SC. Such claims have been completely refuted.

Also, county records show that three of those said to be Johns sons are ACTUALLY the sons of #1 Charles Heard, blacksmith, who died about 1748 at Hardware River, Albmarle Co Va. Those sons of #1 Charles were #2 Stephen Jr who died 1774 Pittsylvania Co VA. #3 John who died in 1787 Wilkes Co. Ga; # 4 Charles JR who died 1797 Wilkes Co GA.

Note John Heard with wife Esther LaPierrr of SC can have no close connection to these Heards. John was a Jacobite rebel deported from England, arriving in Charleston in 1716. Age-wise he would be a different geneeration than the father of Charles, Stephen and George Heard of PA and Va.

The first generation of this Heard family seen in America, by authoritative records found so far is CHARLES SR(The blacksmith), STEPEHN AND their probable brothers GEORGE(a baker) AND UNKNOWN.

Records indicate that upon immigration, Our Heard family first lived in and near Lancaster Co,. PA. It should be pointed out that many early immigrants to Colonial PA. As well as to the other Colonies, either did not seek or did not have recorded title to the lands they settled until years later, perhaps not at all if they left the area. We have proof that Stephen Sr was at Sadsbury before 1727; he died there with a will dated 11 Oct 1756. Among his will-named children was Thomas, who appears to have later lived in Ninety Six District SC.. We may also see records in Lnacaster Co Pa for Heards who may be Charles JR found on 1740 Taxed in New London Twp and for George Sr and JR and John possibly son of George Sr.

These records and the connection of the Abbleville Co. SC family were discovered by Charles R Clemson of Lancaster,Pa. In nearby Salisbury of Lancaster Co. PA. Was Thomas Falkner by 1714, later father in-law of Stephen. The family of Charles SR moved to Goochland Co Va. by 1741 joined by Georges group a little later. The traditional location Hanover Co. VA.

The earliest writings so far found about the Sadsbury-Albemarle Heard family tradition include a paper by Eliza Jane Heard Wootten b 1825 d 1893 and a letter by her brother Dr Falkener Heard b 1828 d 1900. They both wrote that the family came from Co. Tyrone, Ire to America 1720s, but gave NO NAME FOR THE IMMIGRANT ANCESTOR. They also commented on a very old record of this family reported to have contained information back 1420. Family members had talked about this record, saying where it had been kept and who had a copy it. It was said to have been partly in Gaelic and partly in English, as they had land in both places, living first in England before moving to Ireland. Dr Falkner Heard comment that 200 names had been counted in the record. If part of that record was in Gaelic, it would indicate the family was in Ireland for a long time, probably from 1620ca. We know from writings for Julius W, Lliy, Heard researcher, that this lost or mislaid record was being sought by 1906.

AGAIN THIS MAKES NICE STORY BUT NOT PROVEN. THE DOCUMENTS THAT DR FALKENER HEARD USED CAN NOT FOUND. MAYBE ONE DAY IT WILL TURN UP.

Descendants of STEPHEN HEARD

The Heard family is work in progress. There mistakes in it and I am working on fits it. So beware when read it. Keep checking back as I will chance it from time to time.

THIS IS SPECIAL NOTE FROM THE STEPHEN HEARD FAMILY

Joyce Poole has done a lot of hard work. Joyce did the Poole Chart so the Heard researchers would know when they read something that was incorrect. People read all of the BAD DAR records and those BAD genealogy books that are full of mistakes and keep passing it around.

"The Stephen Heard is NOT be related to John Heard the Earl of Tyrone and his wife Lady Margaret. They Might related in Ireland like I posted above but some one must go to Ireland and get birth records or christening records from the parish in Ireland. Some of us would like belong to a Royal family doesn't make it true unless we can get the prove from Ireland. BECAREFUL for there a lot of MISTAKES OUT HERE and with out prove it is a nice DREAM. Joyce has work hard on this family from all her work she does not think they are related. Only God knows and let pray that one day we can find out the truth." Janet

Joyce Poole's Chart/Book/CD. Joyce Poole is our Heard family researcher. She wonderful person who will share finds with anyone. If you would like her chart email me and I will give her you address. More about Joyce look at the bottom of my page.

I think this Stephen and Margaret DAR Records. The OLD DAR RECORDS YOU MUST TAKE THEM WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. The DAR is wants you proof all the records again because now with more facts available now. Some of the old DAR records were done with the families thought were facts but now counties and states are make it earlier for us get documents. So some the DAR records below may or may not be truth lineage lines or have mix two Heard families into one. BECAREFUL and think when you copy what I found here as DAR Lineage Lines. For John Heard the Earl of Tyrone and his wife Lady Margaret are NOT RELATED TO MY HEARD FAMILY remember.

REVOLUTIONARY WAR:

Captain in Revolutionary War, Grave in Greene County is marked DAR Member "Society of the Cincinnati." Revolutionary War - Virginia Line; his name appears on the list showing "Arrangement of Virginia Line, 11/1783." His date of commission was February 18, 1781. He was a prisoner of war.

He was also a member of the Society of the Cincinatti which is a Hereditary Order founded by George Washington and the American and French Officers who served together in the Revolutionary War. He may have served in Washington's Own Regiment.

Thomas Heard is not mentioned in the will of Stephen Heard dated November 24, 1774, Pittsylvania County Deed and it is proven that Thomas is the son of Stephen and Mary Faulkner Heard.

Quoting from rev. Dow H. Hard's research dated June 9, 1957..."Thomas (Son of Stephen), was born in Virginia in 1742 and lived in Virginia at the time of the American Revolution.

His will mentioned "troop bounties" and "land warrants." These are presumed to have been made in payment for military service.

He made his last Will and Testiment on June 3, 1807. His Will was filed at Greensboro (Greene County), Georgia. Thomas' grave in the Heard Cemetery located on Cold Springs Road in Greene County, Georgia (north of Greensboro and Fishing Creek) is marked by the DAR and Order of the Cincinnati.

STEPHEN HEARD (JOHN,CHARLES,STEPHEN)3 was born November 1740 in Hanover County, Virginia, and died November 15, 1815 in Elbert County, Georgia Burial: Family Cemetery at Heardmont. He married 1st JANE GARMANY and married 2nd ELIZABETH "Betsey." DARDEN 4 August 25, 1785, daughter of GEORGE DARDEN and MARTHA BURCH. She was born Bet. 1765 - 1766 in Virginia, and died June 05, 1848. Notes for JANE GARMANY: Jane and their son were driven from their home by the Tories and died of exposure. Notes for STEPHEN HEARD: When the Assembly named Richad Howley as a delegate to the Continental Congress, it expected the executive power to devote upon Goerge Wells, president of the Exectuive Council and a leading radical. The fiery Wells, however, was killed in a duel by James Jackson on February 16, 1780. Two days later Stephen Heard of Wilkes County replaced Wells as president of the Executive Council. When Howley finally departed for Philadelphia, Heard became Georgia's chief executive, acting as governor from May 24, 1780 to August 18, 1781.

Heard was born in Hanover County, Virginia in November, 1740, the son of John and Bridgett Carroll Heard. The Heard family had lived in Virginia about twenty years, having migrated from Ireland around 1720. According to historian R. J. Massey, Heard's education was cut short when he joined George Washington's regiment in the French and Indian War. Promoted to the rank of Captain, Heard and Washington became lifetime friends. In 1759 John Heard moved his family to Georgia, settling forty-five miles above Augusta on Fishing Creek. in 1760 Stephen Heard was granted 150 acres near the mouth of Little River. John Heard and his two sons, living on what was still Indian land until 1773, built Heard's Fort on Fishing Creek in 1773-1774.

During the Revolutionary war, Stephen Heard supported the Whig cause and fought under Elijah Clark at the Battle of Kettle Creek, where the Whigs stopped Colonel James Boyd's invasion. Heard, like many settlers in back country Georgia suffered abuses from the enemy. While he was attending a military conference in Augusta, his wife Jane and their adopted daughter were driven from their home in the midst of winter and subsequently died from exposure. Before the siege of Augusta in September, 1780, Heard along with his father and brother were captured by Tories and imprisoned in Augusta. During Heard's confinement a faithful slave, "Mammy Kate," visited him twice a week. She brough him food, washed his clothes, and, if tradtional lore can be accepted, enabled him to escape. Supposedly the stout Mammy Kate concealed Heard in the large basket used to carry clothes and carried him unnoticed through the British lines.

As governor of Georgia, Heard inherited an impossible situation. Nineteenth century historian George White stated that Heard 'did all in his power to inspire the desponding people with hope." But, regardless of his efforts, there was little hope at this time. British forces occupied or controlled much of the state, including Savannah and the coastal rea. Only Wilkes County and a part of Richmond County remained under Whig authority, and those areas were raided periodically by Tories and Indians. From May 1780 until July 1781 the whereabouts and actions of the state government are conjectural. No assembly was elected and the governor apparently moved from place to place to avoid capture by the British. It seems certain that Heard fled into North Carolina as the backcountry of Georgia and South Carolina was ravaged by war. In reality, state government exisited in name only. As Kenneth Coleman, the chief historian of the Revolution of Georgia, observed: "Truly, state government was in default and it was every man for himself in Whig Georgia." Following the recapture of Augusta, a new assembly met there in August, 1781. Heard served as a member of this legislature and the Executive Council until he resigned in August, 1782.

After the War, Heard settled down to the quiet life of a prosperous farmer. He built a beautiful home in a forest near Washignton which he called Heardmont. A model of beauty and comfort with plastered walls and solid mahogany furniture imported from London, it was reputedly the finest home in Georgia north of Augusta. His landholdings were expanded with generous land grants form the sate for his civil and military service during the Revolution. In 1784 he received grants that totaled 6,850 acres, mostly in what became Elbert County. At the itme of his death he owned twenty four slaves. In 1785 he married Elizabeth Darden of Virginia and they had nine children. Three of their sons were named for the first three American Presidents.

Heard remained active in politics, serving several terms in the Assembly as a representative form Wilkes County and Elbert County. (in 1790 his area of Wilkes County became part of the new Elbert County.) He served as foreman of the first grand jury to convene in Elbert County, helped select the site of Elberton, and for many years as a justice of the county court. Heard also served as a representative to the Georgia consitutional convention in 1795. A lover of books, he accumulated an excellent library and was a pratron of th Moravian school for young women at Salem, North Carolina, and a trustee of the academy at Washington, Georgia.

Heard died at his home on November 15, 1815 and was buried in the family cemetery at Heardmont. Fifteen years after his death, a county in the western part of the state was named in his honor. On his monument at Heardmont is the inscription: "An honest man is the noblest work of God."

POLLY HEARD(JESSE, JOHN, STEPHEN,CHARLES,STEPHEN)b. February 08, 1811, Greenesboro (Greene County), Georgia. died in TX after 1880. m'd James Kilmer. there is James Kilmer

Has Cap. William Standifer's company in Cherokee War

Date for mustered in May 1836

James Kilmer

Because of this I think James Kilmer died in Cherokee War therefore Mary in 1850 Census is list with their Children Early and Byrom

Note: Polly Heard aka Mary Meadors Heard By the preponderant of the law I think that Polly the daughter of Jesse and Margaret Hose Heard is my Mary Meador Heard who married James Kilmer.

1 Jesse came from Greene Co.. GA ca 1811 maybe a little later to Bledsoe Co. because that was the only county at that time.

2. Jesse didn't leave the area the county lines just kept changing so his daughter Mary could have met someone in the Valley to marry.

3. There was James and Jacob Kilmer on a tax list in 1836. Mary is at the right age to get married. My family tradition says Marys husband as a J. Kilmer.

4. My Mary Meadors Heard was born 1811 in GA/TN.

5. I have copy of land deed for Benjamin Kilmer buying land with Jeremiah Early Heard who may be related t to Mary through marriage. The date for this deed is 1854. I need to find out if anyone knows who brought the land after Jesse and his family moves to MO.

6. Mary Meador Heard Kilmer had two sons who are have the same names as the sons of Jesse and Margaret Heard sons Jeremiah Early and Byram.

7. Jeremiah and Byram is a name that runs in the Meadors family.
