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.

Tony,

Thank you so much.  I have just had a glance at the four lengthy files you sent and marveled over them.  However, I am afraid I must have misled you.  I was not indicating an interest in the BURGESS family but rather in Burgess GRIFFIN, one on my Pleasant GRIFFIN's siblings. I just had a look at my master file and find two BURGESS' which may be of interest;

A Charles BURGESS married 4 Oct 1721 Frances FOX in Lancaster County, daughter of William FOX & Ann CHINN;

and Elizabeth BURGESS who married Jeduthun BALL who was the son on Major James BALL and Mary CONWAY.  The sources for both of the above BURGESS' are from Rev. Horace Edwin Hayden's,  Virginia Genealogies ....

 

Thanks again for sharing your wonderful work.  If I find any helpful threads I will let you know. From: Gary Griffin

From: Paul Dodson kathleendotson@comcast.net 

 

1738 abt William Dodson son of Thomas Dodsons Grandson of Thomas Dodson and Great Grandson of Charles Dodson is born, probably in Prince William County, now Fauquier Co. Va. He died 1832 May 6 in lands that were in Iredell Co. NC.

 1763 Nov 23, Faquier County Va. Reverend William Dodson was married his first time as Williamson Dodson to Winifred Johnson aka Winifred Johnston the Daughter of Jeffery Johnston and wife Rachel of Fauquier CO. Va.

 Winnifred Johnson-Johnston evidently died before 1789 when her father died in Wilkes County NC, naming his grandchildren James, Rachel and Winifred Dodson in his will. In fact Winifred Johnson Dodson probably died several years earlier maybe in the 1770's.

 Rev William Dodson married a 2nd time but no record of this marriage has been found and the name of his 2nd wife is unknown. William Dodson is probably the William Dodson who became a member by Baptism of Broad Run Church of Fauquier Co. on 1764 May 13 and who was ex communicated in 1769.

 It is unknown exactly when William Johnson moved to Halifax/Pittsylvania County Va area but he probably came with his Father IN Law Jeffery Johnson who was a witness to a bond and deed of Thomas Dodson and John Creel in Pittsylvania Co. 1773 June ( Pittsylvania Co. Deeds 3-361)

 William Dodson received by will of his Father Thomas Dodson dated 1779, after the death of Thomas Dodson's wife " The plantation and tract of land whereon I now live( we have not located a record of the sale of this land.

 It was reported in the annual register of the Baptist Denomination, by John Asplund that William Dodson was the minister of Cascade Creek Church in 1780. William Dodson is also credited with organizing Arbor Baptist Church in 1785, and Millstone Baptist Church in 1789, both in Halifax County Va. (Halifact by Dr. W.B. Barbeer Danville Va 1941).

 William Dodson is probably shown on Hailfax Co. Tax list from 1782 to 1789.

 From 1790 to 1795 William Dodson is fond on the Tax Lists of Pittsylvania Co. He lived on cascade Creek near his son in law Elijah Dodson-Dotson. Cascade Creek is the extreme Southwest part of Pittsylvania County and flows across the State line into North Carolina.

 It is possible William Dodson was preaching in NC churches before he moved his residence there. ( To NC)

 Willliam Dodson moved to NC soon after 1795 as in April 1799 he entered 200 acres on the Bushy Mountains in Wilkes County NC and in 1800 he entered 300 acres on Beaver Creek. He sold 200 acres to Thomas Phillips on 1801 May 4th (Wilkes Cou.. Deeds & grants 1797-1805 pg 4). The Brushy Mountains lie against the present border of Wilkes and Irdell Co. NC. However William Dodson and his son William Dodson are on the tax lists for Wilkes County in 1805, taxed for 300 acres and 100 acres in Capt. John Carne's District.

 1811 Dec 9, William Dotson received a NC grant for 50 acres on the waters of Little Lower River, Burke County NC (Now Alexander Co NC) and on 1812 Nov 28, he received another grant for 50 acres on Lamberts Fork of Lower Little River ( Wilkes CO. Deeds G/H-394 and G/H-479 ( some of these might be for his son William Dodson).

 William Dodson's church activities in NC are noted in Johnson J. Haynes "The land of Wilkes 1962". Mr. Haynes says that "Among the arms of Flat Rock Church constituted in 1783 May, was Warrior Church constituted in 1799 May" and now called Zion Hill Church, located at Boomer on the waters of Warrior Creek, a Southern Branch of the Yadkin River which rises in the Brushy Mountains.

 The name Zion Hill church was constituted in 1814 April with William Dodson as Pastor. He also served as Pastor at King's Creek Church between 1800-1810.

 Fishing Creek Church located on old Highway 60, is about 4 miles East of Wilkesboro, and was constituted in an arm of Brier Creek church, the result of a  petition filed by members of Brier Creek church who lived some distance from the church. The Petition was signed by William W. Wright, clerk dated the first Saturday in March 1822 and was authorized by Brier Creek and its Pastor. William Dodson and William Gilliam formed the presbytery who constituted it on 1822 Aug. 4. Thtese were Baptist Churches.

 The Rev. Elias Dodson in his manuscript said that Rev. William Dodson preached in Virginia for 30 years and then moved to Iredell Co. NC in 1797 and preached nearly all the time until he died in 1832. While the Rev. William Dodson may have died in Iredell Co. NC he spent a good many years as a resident of Wilkes Co. NC where he was on the census for 1810 and 1820. Rev. William Dodson died at the home of a daughter in Present Alexander Co. NC.

 The Present Alexander Co. NC (formed 1846) where Elder William Dodson spent his latter years was composed of the older counties of Iredell, Wilkes and Burke. The Central portion of Alexander Co. has had a checkered history because the three older counties met there between 1789 to 1841 and the county lines between these three counties shifted back and forth.

In the spring of the year 1776, the Cherokee Indians were very troublesome on the Western side
of the Blue Ridge [Mountains] in that part of the Country particularly now embraced in the limits of
Ashe County N. C. and a requisition was made upon the militia of Wilkes County for a company to
guard the frontier settlements on the Western side of the ridge from there depredations. This deponent
among others volunteered himself in the latter part of May in the year 1776 in the said County of
Wilkes, and joined the company of volunteers commanded by Captain Joseph Herndon, and marched
directly across the Blue Ridge near to where Ashe Court House now stands, where they found a
number of the frontier inhabitants engaged in the erection of a fort upon reaching that place, Captain
Herndon endeavored to prevail upon the inhabitants to abandon the Country and remove to the Eastern
side of the mountains, but this they declined to do and after remaining there for some time in scouring
the surrounding country, they returned home and was discharged. In this expedition this deponent
believes he served about two weeks.
About the first of August following, this deponent again volunteered himself and joined Captain
Benjamin Cleveland's company and rendezvoused near where Wilkes C.H. now stands, and as soon as
the company could be properly organized, and the necessary arrangements made, they marched to the
Pleasant Gardens in the County of Burke, where they joined the troops under General Rutherford
[Griffith Rutherford]. In a few days after joining General Rutherford they marched direct to the
Cherokee Towns of Cowee, Watauga, Oconoluflee [?] and some others not particularly recollected at
what was called the Middle Towns, (the troops being a good deal sickly from eating roasting ears &
fresh beef) a proposition was made by General Rutherford for a thousand volunteers of the ablest and
stoutest man to turn out and march to the Valley Towns this deponent was one of the number, and as
soon as the requisite number was made up they marched immediately to the Valley Towns, a distance
of about sixty miles upon their arrival, they found a few straggling Indians (the balance having fled)
whom they captured and kept prisoners after burning the Towns and destroying their corn and all the
property they could find, they returned again to the middle Towns, where they rejoined that portion of
the Army they had left After remaining a few days at the Middle Town until they rested and
recruited, they set out upon their return to North Carolina, and after reaching the County of Wilkes,
Captain Cleveland discharged his company & this deponent returned home, which place he reached
about the last of October, having been gone about three months. From the time that the deponent
returned from the Cherokee Nation until about the month of August 1780 embracing a period of nearly
four years this deponent performed sundry short tours of duty against the Tories (who at that time were
very troublesome) two of which were performed under Captain William Lenoir on the North Western
side of the Blue Ridge in these two tours this deponent believes he served about a month and the
particular periods of the other tours performed against the Tories cannot now be recollected About
the latter part of August 1780 information was received by Colonel Benjamin Cleveland, that Major
Ferguson [Patrick Ferguson] of the British Army was supposed to be approaching North Carolina from
the South with a large number of British and Tories upon which Col. Cleveland issued orders
immediately for all the militia in the County of Wilkes to rendezvous at the Court House this
deponent immediately repaired thither and joined the company commanded by Captain William Lenoir
after remaining at Wilkes C. H. for some time until the troops could be organized, they set out upon
their march to oppose Major Ferguson upon the way they were joined by Colonel Campbell [William
Campbell], with a Regiment from Virginia, as also by other troops from North Carolina when they
had advanced perhaps to the Cherokee ford on Broad River it was ascertained that Major Ferguson was
endeavoring to post himself on King's Mountain upon which it was proposed that all those who had
horses or who could procure them, should proceed with all possible dispatch to engage with him this
deponent having no horse, and not being able to procure one was necessarily left behind with the foot
men, and did not reach the battle ground the battle having been fought and the Americans being on
their return with their prisoners a short distance, when the foot men rejoined them after rejoining the
Army, this deponent was detailed by Colonel Cleveland with others to take charge of the wounded
(among whom was a brother of this deponent) and after making what preparations they could, and
administering to their wants as much as possible, they set out in advance of the Army and proceeded on
until they reached Wilkes C H when Col. Cleveland directed this deponent to convey his brother home,
as he was in a very helpless condition, and to remain with him until he should recover which this
deponent accordingly did In this expedition, this deponent believes he was absent nearly 3 months,
from the time that he rendezvoused at Wilkes C. H. until his return to that place not counting the time
that he remained with his brother after their return though it was counted to him for a three months
tour, and he drew pay for that length of time. -- In the spring of the year 1781 when Lord Cornwallis
was marching through North Carolina, this deponent again volunteered himself and joined a company
commanded by Captain Nathaniel Gordon -- the company to which this deponent belonged endeavored
to form a Junction with General Greene's Army, which was supposed to be at that time somewhere on
the waters of Dan River in the borders of Virginia but before they had reached the Shallow Ford of
the Yadkin, it was ascertained that Lord Cornwallis was ahead of them, and that he kept scouting and
foraging parties constantly scouring the country so that they found it would be impossible to reach
General Greene without running a great risk of falling into the hands of the enemy they accordingly
took post at a place in the County of Surry where the village of Jonesville now stands and where they
remained until they were discharged. -- In this expedition this deponent believes he served about two
weeks.
This deponent has resided in Wilkes County ever since the revolutionary War, and resides there
at this time He never received any written discharge from the service, nor has he any documentary
evidence to prove it but refers to Mr. Elijah Vickes2 who served with him most of the time, whose
affidavit is hereto annexed, as a witness who can testify to his service.
He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present, and
declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any State.

My Notes Capt. Samuel Johnson below served under Col. Benjamin Cleveland and it was Col. Clevland that ordered William Johnson to take care of the wounded which included his Brother from Kings Mountain battle. Samuel Johnson is the son of Jeffery Johnson of Wilkes County NC

Notes: It now appears the Jeffery Johnson and his wife Moved to lands that were in Rowan County and the lands became Wilkes County. Jeffery Johnson lived and died on lands that were in Wilkes County NC. Two of the Sons of this Jeffery Johnson are William Johnson and Capt Samuel Johnson, both serving under Col. Cleveland in the Revolutionary War. We now that William Johnson moved from County of Fauquier in the State of Virginia on the 6th day of April 1751 (the record of which was entered in his Bible by direction of his father) where he continued to reside until he was about 15 or 16 years of age,(1766 sic) when he removed with his father to the County of Loudoun in the same State where he lived about two years (1769 sic), when he again removed with his father to Rowan (now Wilkes) County in North Carolina.  We also know that William Johnson married Mary Parks and he died in 1835 Wilkes County NC. William Johnson also served in the Revolutionary war with on Elijah Vickes of Wilkes County NC

We now know that Capt. Samuel Johnson was one of the youngest of Jeffery Johnson’s children and he died in Sept. 1835 he was married to a Mary Hammon was born abt 1760 she died in 1853 Jan. 21 and they had at least five children. Those known Children are Ambrose Johnson the 5th child, Mary Johnson who married a ? Bora and lived in Grayson Co. Va.  Other sons are Lewis Johnson and John S. Johnson, of Wilkes Co. NC in. We know that Samuel Johnson was wounded at Kings Mountain serving under Col. Cleveland and that William Johnson of Wilkes County NC was ordered to attend to the wounded of King Mountain by Col. Cleveland and one of those wounded was his brother. We also know that James Martin acted with power of Attorney for Mary Hammons Johnson and drew up Legal documents for her. That Mary Hammons Johnson owned slaves in 1839 and after. Mary Hammons Johnson is some how connected to Sarah Hammons and a Baptist minister named William Hammons

 

It is now confirmed that William Johnson and Samuel Johnson’s sister Winifred Johnson married the Rev. William Dodson see 1789 Wilkes County Will of Jeffery Johnson who mentions his grandchildren in his will. Rev. William Dodson son ends up in Humphreys County Tn living by the widow Ann Johnson who I descend from.
