Just saw your files on My wife is a descendent of Daniel Northup and his son Vernon. Your information goes back much further than what I have available. I'd be interested in sources and confidence levels for what you have. I haven't used the file I downloaded since I'm on a new computer and can't get my Brother's Keeper software working until I get a printer (at least that's what I think is the problem.) What software do you use? I'm sort of leaning towards getting FamilyTreeMaker but not sure. I hear some good reports about it and it looks like the delux package has a lot of potentially usefull information on disks.

Hope to hear from you.

The link works. Thanks. There are a few minor things you might want to change. Daniel was in Col. Archibald CRARY's RI Regiment. Someone made a typo long ago and it has been perpetuated for many years.

I rechecked the "Tidewater VA Families" book. I misread it the first time. Anna Hampton Collins had one child, John Robert Collins, by her husband Robert Collins and he is mentioned in John Hampton's will as one of his grandchildren and one of her children.

Daniel's grave now has a new marker on top of the old one placed there by the Sons of the American Revolution. It is located in Rose Cemetery, Green Twp.

I am not sure about the dates of Daniel and Anna's children. My family history lists all their names, says Elizabeth Jane is their third child and gives her birthdate as March 28, 1784. Apparently it was taken from a family bible as was her date of death which we know is wrong. Don't know where that family bible is but I suspect someone in the McCall family living in Gallia County has it. I suspect that it was Eliz. and James McCall's family bible, but it could be the Northup bible as easily.
I have been unable to find a grave for her or James McCall.

RE: Henry , the only info that I have is that he was a Methodist minister and was last known to be in Washington, D.C. and married a woman by the name of Susannah Painter. She may have been from Marietta and searching there for her family might bring some info. I wonder if Sarah Northup married a relative of Susannah as Sarah married a man named Painter.

There is an inconsistency in the text about Anna's state that she died sometime after 1795 as her last child was born then, but in the listing of the children, you have them born from 1778-1785.

Vernon Northup had two daughters: Elizabeth b 7/13/1816 d 4//30/1841 and Sarah Jane b 4//14//1818 d 11/14/1840 and another child, sex unk. d 9/17/1830 age 50 hrs. All are buried in Rose cemetery, Green Twp.

I am going to do a little more research on Daniel's revolutionary service. I just realized that all I have is a copy of the General Index card but no dates of service are indicated. I traced the regiments and found dates but I am hopeful I can find date of enlistment and date of discharge. Will let you know.

Marietta is in Washington County. Perhaps this might help explain:


Ch.3, 356-362. Nov. 21, 1849
Alimony. Elizabeth said they were married about 36 years ago and have amassed 300 acres and a brick house. Vernon left in 1838, wandered about Tennessee and Illinois, leaving behind debts and judgment which Elizabeth and a son, now deceased, paid off. Vernon came back, arranged sale of property to menagers (managers?) and left for Illinois. Said to be out of his right mind. Vernon admits marrying Elizabeth and said he lived a dog's life every since. Same home in 1841, stayed as long as he could stand it. Went to Quincy, Ill. hear where his brother, Henry L. Northup lived, to find a place. Came back has been living at home at Elizabeth's request. Avers he's sane, although has suffered enough to make a wise man mad. Dismissed.
