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.

Albemarle County, Virginia, formed in 1745 from Goochland County, suffered the loss of its Court Order Books for the period just before and during the Revolution, constituting a period of about 30 years. During a part of this time Albemarle was a very large county, including most of what is now Fluvanna, Buckingham, Amherst and Nelson Counties. Most of the will and deed books are extant for this period. The court order books, however, are often a source of information about people who either lived in the county briefly or who never bought or sold land or made a will. Many of the records are warrants, promissory notes, store accounts, complaints, etc., especially involving merchants. There are a few chancery suits, grand jury presentments, depositions and ordinary licenses. There is also a list, presumably made in the early 1780's, listing what records remained, not "destroyed by the enemy".

During most of the period covered by this, John Nicholas was Clerk of the Court, but had a number of deputies, such as Ben Harris, John Ware, John Fleming, Henry Fry and Joshua Fry.

Following is Notes from other Counties that come into Albemarle County

 

1727 Era: Norman Parks wrote:
The Parks family escaped the clear focus of history in
Virginia until George Washington's day. An earlier Parks had been killed by the Indians in 1619 near Jamestown. Several other men bearing that name appear later in the colony's history. But the roots of the present Parks family are found in one Parks for whom George Washington did some surveying.

 

One married into the Curtis family, and the tie of George Washington Parke Curtis to the Lee family gives support to the claim of Joe Wiley Parks that he was related to Robert E. Lee.

 

Thomas Parks, one of this family, settled in Albemarle County in the Virginia Piedmont some years prior to 1727. Since he left all of his property to his oldest son, his band of younger sons moved to North Carolina, settling along the Yadkin River high on the Piedmont in what is now Wilkes County.

 

Here in 1783, Thomas Parks, son of a fighter at Kings Mountain, was born. In 1811 he took wife a Quaker girl named Sally London, and their first child,
 John London Parks, was born in 1812. By 1814 the family was settled in
Maury County, Tennessee. Grown to manhood, John London Parks met Melinda Crafton at the Roberson Fork Church of Christ and made her his wife in 1836.

Here is information from a book "Like Ole Man River", A History of the Parks, Boshears, Crafton, McGuire, Tipton and Dial Families - From 1607 TO 1986. Written by Norman Lexington Parks, born 1904, TN. 

Norman L. Parks was a professor at a Middle Tennessee University. His parents were Joe Wiley Parks and Victoria Boshears. He said Thomas de Parke, born in the 1600's was progenitor of his Parks lineage

1761 abt I have a reference to John Powers father of Rev. John Powers b abt 1761 at Lickinghole Twp who married Lucinda Houston (Huston). My understanding is that the younger John was raised in the family of a William Barker. I also know that a family of free blacks names Lucas or Lucust associated with the family give further clues.

1730 ERA of Albemarle County

One of the earliest patents of land in Albemarle County was Charles Hudson of Hanover County. His first entry was made in 1730 on the Hardware, below Carter’s Bridge. It was for 2,000 acres and with in the next 3 years he obtained grants for 1,600 more acres in the same locaility. It embraced Mount Air, which was on of the seat of the Hudson Family for more then 100 years. The stream entering the south side of the Hardware below Mount Air was formerly known as Hudsons Creek. Charles Hudson also took out a patent in 1735 for 2,000 acres on Ivy Creek Southwest of Ivy Depot, which he sold two years later to the Elder Michael Woods, It is almost certain he never lived in Albemarle County himself. He died in 1748 and the executor of his estate was his son in law John Wingfield.

 

Charles Hudson wife was probably a Royal, and his children were

William Hudson,

John Hudson,

Christopher Hudson,

Mary Hudson the wife of John Wingfield,

Elizabeth Hudson the wife of Nicholas Johnson,

Rebecca Hudson the wife of Robert Wathen,

Sarah Hudson the wife of Richard Holland,

and Ann Hudson the wife of Joseph Lewis.

In 1762 Mary Wingfield was still living in Hanover County, she conveyed to her son Charles Wingfield part of 500 acres in Albemarle County given to her by her father (Charles Hudson) land was named Prospect where Charles was living at the time. This Charles Wingfield was the forefather of most of the Wingfields who have resided in  Albemarle County.

 

John Hudson had his residence on the lower Hardware, and he died in 1768. He and his wife Ann had four children

Charles Hudson,

John Hudson,

Christopher Hudson and

Charles Hudson married Jane Lewis daughter of Col Charles Lewis Jr, of Buck Island. Their Daughter Martha Eppes Lewis was the wife of Tucker Moore Woodson, who about 1804 removed to Kentucky.

Charles Hudson seems not to have been prosperous in his affairs. In 1807 he exchanged with Samuel Dyer the place on Hardware where he lived for a tract of land in Barren Co. Kentucky, to which he probably removed. John Hudson who died in 1827,

Charles Hudson who died in 1837, and whose daughter

Isaette Hudson became the wife of Isaac R. Barksdale,

Elizabeth Hudson the wife of Charles A. Scott,

Rebecca Hudson the wife of William Henderson,

Sarah Hudson,

Mary Hudson the wife of a Cobbs and

Ann Barber the wife of John Henderson.

 

Christopher Hudson the son of the first Charles Hudson displayed more of the ability and thrift of his father than any other of his descendants. At the time of his death, which took place in 1825 he was possessor of more the 5,000 acres of land. He was appointed a magistrate in 1800, but 4 years after resigned. His home was at Mount Air. He married Sarah Anderson daughter of David Anderson and his children were

He made his first entry of land in 1732 and up to 1741 had obtained patents for near 1,200 acres on the West side of the South west Mountain. His home was where William W. Minor now resides. His Children were

Martin Key,

John Key,

Mary Key wife of a Dalton.

Martin Key succeded to the home and estate of his father and by repeated purchases became the owner of all the land reaching from Edgemont, the place of the late Henry Magrudre, down to the bend of the river on the farm of the late R.F.

Henry Key,

Jesse Key,

James Key,

Walter Key,

Elizabeth Key wife of James Daniel 

Martha Key wife of John White.

Each of his sons was comfortably provided for by their fathers will, though intimation are there given that the habits of some unfitted them for proper management of their affairs.

 

Within the first score of years in the present century the members of this household were for the most part scattered over the South and West. Thomas Key removed to South Carolina where he invented some contrivance for the more effective action of water wheels.

The families of John Keys, James Keys, Martha Keys White, emigrated to Kentucky and Tennessee and that of Elizabeth Keys Daniels to North Carolina,

Tandy Keys lived for many years in the Southern part of the county near Covesville, but is said to have removed eventually to Fluvanna County.

Jesse P. Keys a son of Tandy Keys married Sarah Woods, daughter of the Younger William Woods of Beaver Creek, and lived some time near Mechum’s Depot.

William Bibb Keys married Mourning Clark daughter of Christopher Clark and went to Elbert County Georgia.

Henry Keys settled in Bedford County and

Jesse Keys died in Richmond in 1826.

Walter Keys appears to have been the only one who spent his whole life in this County and his death occurred in 1834.

John Keys, Tandy Keys, and Joshua Keys were magistrates of the county and Walker Keys was appointed to the office, but declined to accept. John Keys served as Sheriff in 1795 and Tandy Keys in 1809.

This is p 49 of the Bedford doc. he is son of Rev William Johnson, also b. Albemarle

 

This is same on p 73:

NOTE: A typed summary adds that Robert Johnson was born in Albemarle County VA on 7 April 1759 and moved from Bedford County VA to Knox County TN in 1787.

 

This fits with his father Reverend William Johnson b. 1735.

From: Sherrie Boone

Research Notes: Bonnie Flythe

The marriage itself most likely occurred well before 1750.  William’s oldest son, Philip Johnson , was probably born about that time.  

It is said that he had married Martha Jones, daughter of Lane Jones, but the actual marriage record has not been found.  Obviously his wife was a Martha.  Another 1757 deed from William’s mother to his brother Thomas provides some hints that William Johnson was associated with Orlando Jones and quite probably married a Martha Jones, sister of Orlando Jones. 

A family history of Gideon Macon has stated that:

Lane Jones, son of Orlando and Martha Macon Jones, b. 15 June 1707, d. ca. 1750, m. 1727 Anne Barber. They were the parents of:

(1) Martha Jones, b. 1728, m. William Johnson of Louisa Co., VA.

(2) Ann Jones, b. 1729, m. John Hudson of Albemarle Co., VA.,

(3) Lane Jones, Jr. b. 1733, d. 1734.

(4) Orlando Jones, b. 1735,

(5) Rowland Jones, b. 19 April 1738,

(6) Frances Barber Jones, b. 1740,

(7) William Jones, b. 1746, lived in Hanover Co., VA.

(Macon & Wood, Alethea, Gideon Macon of Virginia and Some of His Descendants)

 

The name of one of William Johnson’s granddaughters does seem to support this statement. She was called Martha Jones Wiley in the will of Ann Cosby. Laine Jones Bible apparently contained the following:

 

Memo taken of the ages (Births) of Mr. Laine Jones’ children: 

Martha Jones- 5/20/1728,

Anne Jones- 9/24/1729,

Laine Jones- 9/15/1733,

Orlando Jones- 4/19/1738,

Frances Jones- 1/26/1740, &

William Jones 11/7/1746. 

Lane, son of Orlando Jones and Martha, his wife, b. 6/15/1707, 

Francis, son of Orlando Jones and Martha, b. 8/6/1710,

Martha, wife of Orlando Jones, Gent., d. 5/4/1716 (Linda Sparks Starr, email of 8/10/2008)

 

The Reverend Rowland Jones was the father of Orlando, Sr. and also of Anna Maria.  Anna Maria married several times and one marriage was to William Timson who died in 1719.   Her last marriage was to a Thornton. Anna Maria’s will was probated in November 1760 in York County (Wright, Edward F., York County, Virginia Wills, Inventories and Accounts, 1760-1783. 2005, p.3).  She did not mention Martha Jones Johnson by name, but subsequent court documents indicate that Martha Johnson was one of her heirs. Some time in 1760, William and Martha were participants in a suit in York County:

1735 ERA Albemarle County

William Randolph of Tuckahoe Creek was the first of the name to enter land within the present limits of Albemarle County. In 1735 he was granted 2,400 acres on the North side of the Rivanna River near the Mountains, a little below Mountain Falls. On the Organization of the county he was appointed it clerk. At his death his land passed to his son, Thomas Mann Randolph of Tuckahoe Creek. Neither William Randolph or Thomas Mann Randolph resided in the county he was appointed its clerk, but soon after the marriage of Thomas Mann Randolph’s son bearing the name Thomas Mann Randolph with Martha Jefferson and his second marriage with Gabriella Harvie daughter of John Harvie, the land was transferred by the father to the son. The latter then made Edgehill his home. He engaged with much activity in public affairs. He was appointed a magistrate in 1794 elected to congress in 1801, and chosen Governor of Virginia in 1819. He displayed a lively zeal in promoting the interests of agriculture in the county. He died in 1828. His Children were

Ann Randolph wife of Charles L. Bankhead,

Thomas J. Randolph,

Ellen Randolph wife of Joseph Coolidge of Boston,

Cornelia Randolph wife of Nicholas P. Trist,

Dr. Benjamin F. Randolph and

George Wythe Randolph.

 

The home of Charles L. Bankhead was Canton, he was married twice. His children by his first wife were

John W. Bankhead, who died in Missouri,

Ellen Monroe Bankhead wife of John Coles Carter, and

Thomas Mann Bankhead who settled in Arkansas.

His second wife was Mary Carthrae a granddaughter of General Samuel H. Lewis of Rockingham County. He died about 1833, leaving one son Charles L. by the last Marriage.

The Stalwart and venerable figure of Col. Thomas J. is familiar to many still living. For many years he took a leading part in all matters pertaining to the welfare of the county. He was a magistrate a member of the Legislature, a devoted member of the County Agricultural Society and President of the Farmers Bank. He married Jane Nicholas daughter of Governor W.C. Nicholas.

Benjamin F. was a physician and lived at the South end of Carters Mountain. He married Sarah Carter daughter of Robert H. Carter. In addition to his professional labors he was appointed magistrate in 1846 and for several terms was a member of the State Senate. George W. was admittied to the Albemarle bar in 1840 and a few years after removed to Richmond. In the days of the Confederacy he was its last Secretary of War.

 

Colonel Richard Randolph of Henrico County owned land in Albemarle County. In 1760 he obtained a grant of 240 acres on Moores Creek. At some time he purchased 1,200 acres adjoining the tract just mentioned from some one, perhaps William Taylor who seemed to have entered it in 1737. To. Dr. Thomas Walker as trustee of the county, he sold 1,000 acres of this land, on which in 1762 Charlottesville the new Courthouse was established. He also entered nerly 1,500 acres in the Southern part of the county on Green Creek. He probably never resided on this land, but managed it through the agency of overseers.

 

Governor Edmund Randolph was also a landholder in Albemarle County. In 1786 he purchased from John Fry 2,500 acres on Green Mountain including the Viewmont estate. For some years he sought relaxation from his professional and official cares in looking after this property. In 1793 he petitioned for the right to erect a mill on Hardware, where Colonel Fry had had one before. He sold this land to William C. Carter in 1798.

 

In 1805 Dr. Thomas Eaton Randolph bought from Johnson Rowe the land opposite Milton on which is situated the estate of Glenmore. His wife was Jane Cary sister of Governor Thomas Mann Randolph. He was appointed a magistrate of the county in 1807. In 1813 he sold Glenmore to Louis H. Guardian the continuator of Burk’s History of Virginia and purchased a plantation further down the river on Carrolls Creek called Ashton. His daughter Elizabeth Randolph became the wife of Francis Eppes Jr. the grandson of Mr. Jefferson.

 

In the decade of 1840 John T. Randolph came to the county from the Valley and married Ann Farish daughter of William P. Farish. In 1862 he entered the Baptist Ministry.

Charles Moorman came from Isle of Wright England and in 1744 was living in Louisa County not far from Green Spring. He was a leading Quaker and at that time he and his son Thomas Moorman were overseers of the Friends Meeting House on Camp Creek in Louisa County. As Early as 1735 they were both patentees of land with in the present Albemarle County. Charles Moorman entered 400 acres at the forks of the Rivanna near the Blue Mountains, the junction of Mechums and Moormans Rivers and the entry of Thomas Moorman comprehended the present Carrsbrook and was Later described as including the Indian Grave low gorunds. Seven years later Thomas Moorman entered a larger tract further up the Moormans River and thus gave his name to a stream. Charles Moorman also purchased land on Totier Creek where two of his sons lived, Thomas Moorman and Robert Moorman. He himself appears never to have resided in the county. Charles Moorman married Mary Venable whose home was on Byrd Creek in Goochland County, and his children where

William Woods no doubt the oldest of the family born in 1706 succeeded his father at Mountain Plains, the old homestead. He seems to have been unfortunate in his business affairs. Twice he mortgaged his property first to Thomas Walker, and then to a number of Valley men among whom were his brother- in- law John Bowyer, and his nephew Samuel McDowell. At length in 1774 he made sale of it to Thomas Adams of Augusta County. At that time he was living in Fincastle County. His wife was Susanna Wallace a sister of his brother in Law William Wallace, and his children were

William Woods remained in Albemarle County, he lived on Beaver Creek about a mile north of Crozet, an this account as there were two other William Woodses contemporances, he was commonly known as Beaver Creek Billy ( Woods). In many respects he was a remarkable man, in his spheres somewhat of a born ruler, of fine sense and great decision. Many amusing stories have been told on his management of men and things, particulary of his fostering care over Mountain Plains Church. He died in 1836, 92 years of age. He was married 3 times, first to his Cousin Sarah Wallace, next to his cousin Ann Reid, and 3rd to Mrs. Nancy Richardson. He had one son

Rockfish River

See report

 

1738 ERA ROCKFISH

The Mayos have had a name and place in Albemarle County from the Beginning. Colonel William Mayo the County Surveyor of Goochland County obtained a patent for 800 acres on the branches of Rockfish River, near the blue Mountain, in 1738. The patent of Dr. William Cabell for 4,800 acres on both sides of the Fluvanna obtained the same year adjoined this entry of Mayo. Among the first deeds recorded in Albemarle, is one from Ann Mayo conveying this land to Robert Barnett in 1748.

 

In 1749 Philip Mayo of Henrico County entered 400 acres on the branches of Hardware River situated in the limestone belt and long known as the Limestone Survey. In 1752 he sold it to Peter Jefferson, Joshua Fry, Arthur Hopkins, Thomas Meriwether, Daniel Scott, and William Stith, President of William and Mary College. It is presumed that in making this purchase these gentleman had in mind some project for utilizing the mineral it contained.

 

The original record of the deed having been destroyed it was restored in 1802. As late as 1830 these separate interests were not united as in that year Governor Gilmer as executor of Christopher Hudson sold to George Gilmer his father one sixth of the tract.

 

James Mayo died in 1777 leaving 11 sons and 2 daughters. The most of them no doubt lived in Goochland County. One Thomas Mayo who belonged to that County bought in 1779 from Thomas Collins 400 acres on Edge Creek the small branch of Moore’s Creek that runs on the East side of the Teel place. 4 years later Thomas Mayo sold part of this tract to his brother Richard George Mayo. If Richard George Mayo ever lived on it, he removed elsewhere as in 1809 his brother Joseph Mayo as his attorney sold it to another brother James Mayo. James Mayo died in 1821 in his 83 year of life.

In the latter part of the last Century Robert Rives who married Margaret daughter of Colonel William Cabell, transacted an extensive business at Warminster, Nelson County in the interprising spirit which inspired his undertakings. He established a branch house in Milton soon after the founding of that town under the form of Borwn, Rives and Co. The partners were James Brown of Richmond, Robert Rives and Robert Burton. He also became the owner of large and valuable tracts of land in Albemarle County. For the Bolling Spring planation, which he bough from John Patterson of Baltimore, in 1818 he gave $60,000 the largest sum perhaps ever paid for any farm in this region. His sons William C. Rives,

George Rives,

Henry Rives,

Robert Rives, and

Alexander Rives all resided in Albemarle County.

 

William C. Rives married Judith Walker daughter of Francis Walker, who inherited Castle Hill as her portion of her father’s estate. About the same time he became a member of the Albemarle Bar. His career in public is a matter of History. He did service in the Legislature in the United States Senate and as Minister to France. He was regarded as one of the most finished orators of his day. After his retirement he was occupied in writing a history of the life and times of James Madison. He died in 1868.

 

George Rives married Mary Eliza Carter, daughter of Robert Carter. His home was at Sherwood on the north side of the Hardware River below Carter’s Bridge. He married next Maria Tucker daughter of Professor George Tucker, and died in 1874. Henry Rives received from his father a plantation on Green Mountain in 1827.

 

Robert Rives married Elizabeth Pennill and resided at the old Nicholas place near Warren, he died in 1867.

 

Alexander Rives was admitted to the bar in 1829 and made his home for many years at  Charleton, which he purchased in 1833 from the trustees of Charles Bankhead. He was a member of both houses of the Legislature, and of Congress and soon after the war was appointed Judge of the United States Court for the western District of Virginia. He was married twice first to Isabel Wydown and next to Sarah Watson of Louisa County and he died in 1885.

 

Paulina Rives a daughter of Robert Rives was the wife of Richard Pollard who lived in the southern part of the County. Their Children were

Margaret Pollard wife of James P. Henderson,

Virginia Pollard,

Rosalie Pollard,

James R. Pollard,

Lucy Pollard,

Richard Pollard,

Edward A. Pollard, and

1741 ERA Albemarle County

The Jameson’s were settled at an early day on the Moorman’s River both above and below Whitehall. John Jameson took out a patent for land on the North side of that stream in 1741 and Samuel Jameson his brother of son on the branches of Spring Creek in 1747. In 1765 Samuel Jameson purchased land in the old Woods Gap from Archibald Woods who had entered it in 1756. His Son Alexander Jameson sold it in 1809 to David Stephenson of Augusta County. Samuel Jameson died in 1788, he and his wife Jean had 9 children four of who where

It is reported that Thomas Jameson who was a physican in busy practice in Charlottesville in the early part of the Century was a scion of this stock. IN 1806 he lived on the lot on which the family of J.J. Conner resides at present, and which he purchased from William G. Garner, In one of his conveyances it is described as being on the upper street leading to Jameson’s Gap. That being evidently the name of what is now called Turks Gap. He married Evalina Alcock daughter of William Alcock and his sister was the 2nd wife of John Kelly. In 1815 he sold his residence to Mr. Kelly and it is believed he emigrated to the West.

1742: Albemarle County History  pg 151, 152, 153: The Browns of Brown's Cove were a Hanover family, its head Benjamin Brown and his eldest son Benjamin Brown, patented a large area of Land in Louisa Co. both before and after its establishment in 1742. They began to obtain grants in Albemarle Co. also soon after its formation. From 1747 to 1760 they entered more than 6,000 acres on both sides of Doyle's River. Benjamin Brown Sr married Sarah Dabney, who according to Dr. Charles Brown's will was descended from the Jennings family that left the enormous estate in England, which such multitudinous posterity in this country has coveted, and which prompted Dr. Charles Brown to cross the sea twice in his old age.

Barzillai Brown,

Benajah Brown,

Bernis Brown,

Passing these names under review, one can imagine the delight of the old gentleman in the iterating of B.B. and how assiduously he searched the Scriptures and the Live of the Saints to attain his pet ideal                              Benjamin Brown and William Brown were their father's executors and appear to have had their portions and residence in Hanover or Louisa Counties. Barzillai Brown sold out in Albemarle County and settled in Shelby Co. KY in 1809. Benajah Brown also disposed of his interests and removed to Buckingham Co.

 

Bernard Brown had his family at the foot of Buck's Elbow, not far from Whitehall. He was the first of the family to depart this life, dying in 1800. He and his wife Elizabeth had 12 children:

1746: Albemarle County History pg  245,247: The Kinkeads were early settlers in the western part of the County. As far as can be made out, there were 3 brothers of the Name, David Kinkead, Joseph Kinkead, and James Kinkead.

In 1746 David Kinkead patented nearly 800 acres on the North Fork of Rockfish River and the next year 400 acres more on Stockton’s Creek. By entry and purchase together the family connection became the owners of not far from 3,000 acres in that vicinity. Joseph Kinkead, James Kinkead and John Kinkead probably the sons of Joseph Kinkead appear as subscribers to the call of Reverend Samuel Black in 1747.

The home of Joseph Kinkead and James Kinkead were situated about half mile west of Immanuel Church, on the place now owned by Reverend Dabney Davis. An old graveyard a few hundred yards south of Mr. Davis's house is still known in the neighborhood as the Kinkead burying ground. A broken down wall and a few rough stones are all that mark the spot.

James Kinkead died in 1762 leaving 3 sons:

Thomas Kinkead, John Kinkead and James Kinkead, and probably 2 more, Matthew Kinkead and Andrew Kinkead, and a daughter the wife of Ninian Clyde.

Joseph Kinkead died in 1774, his children were Jean Kinkead wife of Hugh Alexander, John Kinkead and Ruth Kinked the wife of Andrew Grier.

Hugh Alexander had a mill which at on time was a noted center in that section, roads were made to it from ever Quarter. It was built on Stockton's Creek, not far from the foot of Hill west of Hillsboro. In subsequent years it was known as Hayes’s and still later as Humphrey's Mill. It is supposed Andrew Grier was one of the early merchants of that vicinity. He was the owner of nearly 600 acres adjoining Yellow Mountain, which likely in liquidation of his debts, he conveyed in 1766 to Jeremiah Parker and Richard Warde merchants of Philadelphia. In course of years part of this land passed in the hands of Jon Lob Ban Jr. and part into the hands of Dr. Peter B. Bowen.

A grandson of Joseph Kinkead married a daughter of Adam Dean another early settler on Stockton's Creek and in Dec 1898 there died in Greenbrier County. Adam Dean Kinkead doubtless their son at the age of 92. All of the kindred bearing the name, seem to have removed from this county before the close of the last century. Its latest appearance on the records occurs in 1784, when Jean Kinkead the widow of James Kinkead sold to Abner Wood a parcel of land in what is known as the Piper and PATRICK neighborhood. She was at that time a resident of Rockbridge Co. In the Black call the name Kinkead is spelled Kincaid Albemarle County History by Reverend Edgar Woods, ISBN # 1-933268-51-4: Published 1901 by Michie Company Printers Charlottesville Va

 (how related to De Neville’s off Plantagenet Lines)

 

1747 Albemarle County History Pg 303 and 304: The name Rea is found in the county at the time of its formation. In 1747 Fergus Rea bought a portion of the Chiswell patent on Rockfish River. About the same time John Rea was the owner of land on the Rivanna near Martin King's Ford, the present Union Mills. Whether these person were related to those here after mentioned does not appear.

 

 Andrew Rea, Thomas Rea and Samuel Rea were considerably interested in real estate during a period from 1744 to 1788. At first of these dates Andrew Rea entered a small tract on the south side of the Rivanna a short distance above the mouth of Ivy Creek and at the time was the owner of land adjoining. Beyond doubt he gave name of the ford so called though is should be written Rea not Ray, in the patent it is written Reay.

 

Thomas Rea owned lands on the head waters of Mechum's near Round Mountain and subsequently purchased in the vicinity of Rea's Ford and on Meadow Creek not far from the old Poor House.

 

Samuel Rea also had a place near Rea's Ford and in 1788 bought on Beaver Creek between Crozet and Whitehall. All three were married, the name of Andrew Rea's wife being Mary,

that of Thomas Rea's wife was Ursula and 

that of Samuel rhea’s wife was Jane daughter of Daniel Maupin and his wife Margaret Via. 

These Persons, it is likely were brothers.

Samuel Rea's children were

Daniel Rea,

Andrew Rea,

Thomas Rea,

Robert Rea and

Margaret Rea wife of Ezekiel McCauley.                                                                                                           Robert Rea married Elizabeth Maupin daughter of Daniel Maupin and his wife Mary Elizabeth Dabney, lived on Beaver Creek neighborhood, and died in 1831.

 

In a report of Bernard Brown of persons listed to work on the roads near the foot of Buck's Elbow in 1792, Andrew Rea and Thomas Rea are mentioned, and in a court order on the same subject made in 1823, occurs the names Robert Rea, Thomas Rea and Bland.

Thomas Rea the 3rd son of Samuel Rea lived beneath Buck's Elbow and died in 1850. His wife was Ann Ballard daughter of Bland Ballard and his children were

Daniel Rea,

Jane Rea the wife of Garland Maury,

Bland Rea,

Jemima Rea the wife of George Wolfe.

Bland Rea married Sarah Alexander and secondly Elizabeth Jones daughter of Colonel John Jones. In his youth he was associated with Benjamin Ficklin in the manufacture of tobacco, but afterwards settled as a farmer near the old homestead and died in 1868. His children were

RESEARCH NOTES OF Bonnie Flythe: 23 June 1752.  John Cosby and Ann Cosby, of Fredericksville Par., Louisa Co., and Nicholas Johnson of St. Martin’s Parish, Louisa Co., to Thomas Johnson of Drisdale (Drysdale) Par., Caroline Co., Gent.  For diver good causes more especially for the £60 sterling money of Great Britain.  311 acres in Fredericksville Par.

Ann Cosby (by name of Ann Johnson) by letter patent at With of Williamsburg 26 Mar.1739; recorded in the Secretaries Office.  Signed:  John Cosby, Ann Cosby, Nicko. Johnson  23 June 1751 ackn. by John Cosby, Anne his wife, and Nicholas Johnson (Lo. Co. DB-A, 465-466) Thomas Johnson also acquired land in Louisa county from his mother and brother Nicholas in 1752 & 1757.  At this time, he was still a resident of Caroline County. :Sheadvies this is This son of Thomas Johnson lived his entire life in Louisa County, Virginia. He must have been born before 1728 and he died in Louisa Co in 1798 leaving a will.

He was generally known as Thomas Johnson Major and he certainly was a colorful character!  His birth date can only be estimated, but there is evidence of the identity of his first wife, Elizabeth Ashton.  They were married some time before 1749. Elizabeth Ashton was a daughter of Col. Henry Ashton, resident of Westmoreland County.  Col. Ashton died there before 1731 when his will was probated.  He was quite wealthy and Elizabeth seems to have been his only direct heir:

 

My Notes: Col Henry Ashton check his lineage as I believe he is off Col. Walter Ashton, whose daughter is married to LTC RICHARD COCKE of Henrico Co. Va. and then to Daniel Clarke of  Surry County

 

The Ashton familes are from Lincolnshire England as is Col. Richard Johnson, William Hatcher, William Farrar who transported the first Richard Johnson to the Colonies by 1623

1754 Era

Rev. James Maury became Rector of Fredericksville parish in 1754 and continued until his death in 1768. He was succeeded by his son Rev. Matthew Maury, who served until his death in 1808. Neither of these ministers occupied the glebe choosing rather to reside on their own farms. This Glebe on the side east of the mountain consisting of 400 acres was sold in 1809 to Nathaniel Ragland by Edward Garland, Stephen Moore and Others who at the time were acting as Overseers of the Poor. There was also a Glebe on the west side of the mountain which was situated between the Burnt Mills and Earlysville and which was sold in 1780 by Thomas Johnson and William Simms Church Wardens to Epaphroditus Rhodes.

Notes On Henry Key:

 

1732 ERA Albemarle County

 

John Key was on of the first pioneers who fixed their abodes within the present limits of the county. He made his first entry of land in 1732 and up to 1741 had obtained patents for near 1,200 acres on the West side of the South west Mountain. His home was where William W. Minor now resides. His Children were Martin Key, John Key, Mary Key wife of a Dalton. Martin Key succeded to the home and estate of his father and by repeated purchases became the owner of all the land reaching from Edgemont, the place of the late Henry Magrudre, down to the bend of the river on the farm of the late R.F. Omohundro. He died in 1792. He and his wife Ann had 12 children, Thomas Key, John Key, Martin Key, Tandy Key, Joshua Key, William Bibb Key, Henry Key, Jesse Key, James Key, Walter Key, Elizabeth Key wife of James Daniel and Martha Key wife of John White. Each of his sons was comfortably provided for by their fathers will, though intimation are there given that the habits of some unfitted them for proper management of their affairs.

 

Within the first score of years in the present century the members of this household were for the most part scattered over the South and West. Thomas Key removed to South Carolina where he invented some contrivance for the more effective action of water wheels. The families of John Keys, James Keys, Martha  Keys White, emigrated to Kentucky and Tennessee and that of Elizabeth Keys Daniels to North Carolina, Tandy Keys lived for many years in the Southern part of the county near Covesville, but is said to have removed eventually to Fluvanna County. Jesse P. Keys a son of Tandy Keys married Sarah  Woods, daughter of the Younger William Woods of Beaver Creek, and lived some time near Mechum’s Depot. William Bibb Keys married Mourning Clark daughter of Christopher Clark and went to Elbert County Georgia. Henry Keys settled in Bedford County and Jesse Keys died in Richmond in 1826. Walter Keys appears to have been the only one who spent his whole life in this County and his death occurred in 1834. John Keys, Tandy Keys, and Joshua Keys were magistrates of the county and Walket Keys was appointed to the office, but declined to accept. John Keys served as Sheriff in 1795 and Tandy Keys in 1809. John Keys was an Ensign in th 8th Virginia and Henry Keys a soldier in the armuy of the Revolution.

1764 ERA OF

The name of Garrett must always awaken interest in Albemarle County, because of its long official connection with its affairs. William Garrett appeared on the scene in 1764 when he purchased From Francis Jerdone the same person who bought the Farmington lands and sold them to George Divers, 2000 acres along the Northern base of Toms Mountain, in North Garden. In the course of the next 10 years he disposed of this property to different parties, but as far the greater portion of it to John Jones. William Garret a swell as Francis Jerdone belonged to Louisa. It is thought he was the grandfather of Alexander Garrett. The father of Alexander Garret was Henry Garret who in 1810 removed from Louisa County to Kentucky and in passing through Charlottesville constituted his son his attorney to settle up his business. He departed this life in his new home in 1815.

Alexander Garrett came to this County as early as 1794. In 1799 he was a Deputy of SAMUEL MURRELL, who at the time was Sheriff. A year of two later he Married Elizabeth Minor daughter of James Minor who resided on the North Fork of the Rivanna near Stony Point, and from the mention of his name among those assigned to work the roads,  Alexander Garret evidently lived for a time in the vicinity. In 1806 he received the appointment of Deputy Clerk under John Nicholas. About the time his wife diedm and in 1808 he married Evalina Bolling daughter of John Bolling of North Garden. In 1815 he succeeded Mr. Nicholas as County Clerk, and in 1819 was appointed Clerk of the Circuit Court upon the resignation of John Carr, who had occupied that office since the Circuit Court superseded the District Court in 1809. Both of these offices he held until 1831, when his brother Ira Garret was made County Clerk. Besides his Official duties, he was assisuous and successful in many lines of business. He was a large dealer in real estate, owning at different times fine tracts of land in various neighborhoods of the county, Meadow Creek, Birdwood, North Garden, North Blenheim, Ivy Cottage, and Greenwood. About 1815 his home was on the south side of University St. and during the decade of 1820 he erected the large brick mansion at the foot of Second St. In 1825 he laid out and brought into market the lots on Ridge Street and in 1828 built Midway as a Hotel, of which J.A. Xaupi was the first occupant. During his latter years owing no doubt to the constant and long continued strain on his powers he was afflicted with softening of the brain. He died in 1860. By his first Marriage he had a

daughter Elizabeth Garret the first wife of V.W. Southall and

by his second wife Dr. John Bolling Garrett,

Susan Garrett wife of Dr. Thomas Johnson,

Eliza K. Garrett wife of Alexander Duke, and

Clariss Garrett wife of Dr. Thomas J. Pretlow.

Ira Garret like his brother commenced his business life by riding Sheriff. He was Deputy under Benjamin Harris in 1815, and Robert Davis in 1817. Soon after he became deputy County Clerk under his brother and in 1831 succeded him as principal. When the office became elective, he was chosen both to it and the Circuit Court Clerkship, term after term as long as the people had a voice, and even when another was appointed by Military Authority it was demanded by an over whelming public sentiment that the faithful old man should act as deputy. In 1818 he bought from Jonathan B. Carr the place at the east end of Main Street, which he made his home for the rest of his life. He always had a strong inclination to rural pursuits and in 1836 purchased a plantation south of Charlottesville, afterwards the farm of W. P. Farish, but with him the lack of a close marred the knack of accumulation.

In 1766 Waddy Thompson of Louisa County came to the county and Married Mary Lewis daughter of Robert Lewis and the widow of Samuel Cobb. He had previously married Elizabeth Anderson daughter of Nelson Anderson of Hanover County. His Children by the first marriage were

Nelson Thompson,

Anderson Thompson,

David Thompson who removed to Woodford County Ky,

Waddy Thompson who removed to Rockingham County

Susan Thompson the 2nd wife of David Rodes and afterwards of James Kerr and

Lucy Thompson.

Nelson received from his father 250 acres southwest of Still house Mountain which he sold in 1794 to Thomas Garth Sr. He then bought on Beaverdam of Hardware where he died in 1798. The children by his second marriage were

Ann Thompson the first wife of John Slaughter and next to Jesse Davenport,

Mildred Thompson was the wife of James Scott,

and Judith Thompson the wife of John  Poindexter.

John Slaughter was surveyor of the County and died in 1797. His children were

Mary L Slaughter.

Waddy T. Slaughter and

Robert L. Slaughter 

Waddy T married Farnces Ballard and in 1823 was living in New York where he was Postmaster and owner of the tanyard, the most lasting monument of the place which he bought from Nathaniel Landcraft, and sold to James Lobban. Waddy Thomson in 1801 and his wife in 1813. All their children appear to have moved from the county except Susan and her husband. For a time he kept the Swan Tavern, he died in 1822 and she in 1847 Albemarle County History by Reverend Edgar Woods, ISBN # 1-933268-51-4: Published 1901 by Michie Company Printers Charlottesville Va

He married Elizabeth Moore daughter of John Moore and his home was on the land just North and West of Charlottesville given to his wife by her Father, He died in 1779 and in 1782 his widow became the wife of Major Joseph Crockett an Officer of the Revolutionary Army, who soon after moved to Kentucky. Tucker Woodson left two sons,

Tucker Moore Woodson and

Samuel Hughes Woodson.

Tucker M. Woodson about the beginning of the century purchased a considerable amount of real estate in town and County among other places the plantation of Viewmont which in 1803 he sold to Captain John Harris. The next year he removed to Kentucky. His wife was Martha Eppes daughter of Charles Hudson. Samuel Woodson had emigrated to Kentucky some years before.

Tarleton Woodson,

Susan Woodson wife of Micajah Wheeler, and

Sarah Woodson wife of John Everett.

Tarleton Woodson,

Augustine Woodson, and

Prior Woodson.

He died in 1862, he was married first to a sister of James C. Halsall a member of the Albemarle Bar and next to Clarissa Carr daughter of D. Ferrell Carr.

1771 Arrived as Pastor: Albemarle County History  pg 232, 233: Reverend William Irvin was one of the early Presbyterian ministers of the county. He received his education in part at the school of reverend John Todd in Louisa Co. He was received by the Presbytery of Hanover in 1769, and settled as Pastor of the Cove and Rockfish Churches in 1771. He married Elizabeth Holt daughter of Joseph Holt who served in the Revolution as First Lieutenant in the 4th Virginia and who purchased land from Colonel Charles Lewis on the Staunton Road west of Ivy Depot, where he resided until 1794. Mr. Irvin bought part of this land from his father in law, but sold it in 1783 and the same year purchased from Charles martin a farm on the South fork of Hardware River, where J. Goulet Martin now lives, and where he made his home until his death in 1809.

His relation to Rockfish Church was dissolved in 1776, and he then devoted his time to preaching at the Cove D.S. and Mountain Plains. In 1793 his old preceptor, Reverend John Todd met with tragic death on his return from a meeting of Presbytery at the Cove. The road on the east side of Persimmon Mountain passed then as it does still along the bed of the South hardware River for a short distance, there the venerable minister was found lying in the stream life extinct. Whether he was smitten with an apoplectic stroke or whether his horse took fright, and starting suddenly threw him, was not known. It is said he was accustomed to ride a spirited horse.
