Pedigree

Last Edited 22 Nov 2003

Birth 20 May 1808  William Hamilton "Billy" Brown was born on 20 May 1808 at Ashe County, NC.1 
  He was the son of James Brown and Unknown first wife (?)
Marriage circa 1830  William Hamilton "Billy" Brown married Martha Tucker, daughter of David Tucker Jr and Polly ?, circa 1830.2,3 
Marriage 1845  William Hamilton "Billy" Brown married Lurena Tucker, daughter of David Tucker Jr and Polly ?, in 1845.2,3 
Death 30 January 1875  William Hamilton "Billy" Brown died on 30 January 1875 at Ashe County, NC, at age 66.1 
Burial 1875  He was buried in 1875 at Senter Primitive Baptist Church.4 
Fact 1   Per Loriane Blevins Brown 10/29/00 Billy Brown had land on Little Phenix Mtn, as did his son Major. She still lives on that land. She said that Grace Kelly, niece of Hattie Kelly, daughter of Caroline Brown Kelly, lives in Wilkesboro and that she has Billy Brown's Bible.5 
Note   Vicki and Geneva Watkins interviewed "Aunt Ella Bertie Brown Boggs" and Gertrude S Brown Taylor ("my mother, now deceased"). Those names are the source for "parents of Martin Brown": James "Jimmy" Brown m Suckie or Shooky. On another page it says "Billy Brown was said to be (above that is written "may have been") the half-brother of Martin, not documented. Aunt Bert stated that Billy was the father of Caroline. She was the mother of 2 sons prior to her marriage to Columbus Kelly. Those 2 sons were Wiley and Ed Brown. Ed had a different father than Wiley. Billy Brown was noted for his temper. "He was related to us (Gertrude). He had been on a trip and arrived but I'm not sure how." Billy Brown was accepted by the Levi Cicero Brown family as a half-brother per Aunt Vesta Brown.2 
Fact 1   Part of an Email from Gail Brown 10/17/00: "so far as i know James had 3 sons William,Martin and Gibson. at least according to his will, james, did not claim william. we belive William was born out of wedlock, Williams grandaughter hattie Kelly . said her mother the daughter of william told her that his father did not raise him. we know that Martin was a half brother to William."

Per a later Email from GB, he knew a lady named Annie Fowler who lived to be 99. She knew Martin, son of James. He told her Billy was his half brother.
.6 
Note   My conclusion that William was the son of James is based on the interviews with family members as described above, plus the deed from James to William. William, Susannah and Rhoda were evidently not mentioned in James' will because he had already gotten them land at a previous date. 
Fact 1 8 October 1828  On 8 October 1828, at Ashe County, NC,, James Brown sold to William Brown for $50, 50 acres whose description matches that of James' Grant # 1352.

Edmund Spencer Worley
b. before 1813, d. between 1840 and 1843

Father Samuel Worley b. circa 1790
Mother Mary Worley
Pedigree

Last Edited 25 Jun 2006

Birth before 1813  Edmund Spencer Worley was born before 1813 at VA. 
  He was the son of Samuel Worley and Mary Worley
Marriage 16 March 1833  Edmund Spencer Worley married Martha Patsy Moore, daughter of William Moore and Rebecca Swinney, on 16 March 1833 at Franklin County, VA.1,2 
Death between 1840 and 1843  Edmund Spencer Worley died between 1840 and 1843 at Floyd County, VA. 
Note   The supposition that Samuel son of Daniel is the father of Edmund is based on the following: It is always possible that Edmund was the son of someone outside of Franklin County who just visited and married Martha Moore, but it's most likely that he was the son of one of the Worley families living in Franklin near the time of his marriage.

There were 3 Worley families in Franklin in the 1830 census, Daniel who had a household with just himself and wife, and two Samuel Worleys who had the following households. 3110001-0010001 and 001311-0001001. Because we know Edmund named a son Samuel, this fits. The problem is to figure out which Samuel was Edmund's father. Note that of the 2 Samuels, the first was age 40-50 in 1830 and had younger sons. The one son age 10-15 could possibly have been Edmund if he was 15 and married Martha at age 18 in 1833. Or the older Samuel could have had sons who were not living with him in 1830. The other Samuel, who was age 30-40, had older sons, 4 of which were older enough to have married Martha in 1833. His family exactly matches that of the Samuel who was present in Franklin County in the 1820 census with the following family 310010-10010.

There were 9 young Worley men who were married and/or lived in Franklin or Floyd County between 1833 and 1850: Edmund, George, Moses, John, Isaiah, Charles, James, Harry, and Samuel Jr. Of these, Charles and John witnessed James' marriage bond and Isaiah witnessed Charles' bond, so these 4 are most likely brothers. Charles, Isaiah and James are all too young to belong to the younger Samuel with the older sons, so these four belong to the older Samuel. He had seven different sons living with him between the 1830 and 1840 census, so any of the other younger men, like Samuel Jr and Harry, are probably his also. The issue is further complicated by the marriage in 1827 of a Samuel Worley to Nancy Mills. This is a second marriage for Nancy. She gave permission in 1833 for her daughter Charlotte Mills to marry John Aldridge. So one of the Samuel families in 1830 probably includes some of Nancy's children and Samuel's both. She was a widow in the 1820 census with the following family 500000-10111. (The females list could be 10110; the last 1 is faint and may have been erased.) Since the family of the younger Samuel matches the Samuel who was enumerated in 1820, I assume it was the other, older Samuel who married Nancy and added some of her children to his household.

This leaves the older young men, i.e. George, Moses and Edmund, to be sons of the younger Samuel. He had 5 sons show up between the two censuses, so Harry, for whom we have no birth date, may be his also.

A Samuel Worley married Mary Worley, daughter of Moses, in 1809 in Franklin County. Because the younger Samuel, son of Daniel, was in Franklin about that time, I assume this is he. The main problem with this theory is that the older Samuel isn't found ANYWHERE in the census in 1810 or 1820, and he surely was old enough to have had a household somewhere. I also have not found him in a tax list anywhere before that date. So he had a habit of escaping the tax collector somehow. This could mean that both Samuels were around the whole time and the older Samuel could have married Mary. We have no idea of the name of the wife of whichever Samuel didn't marry Mary Worley.

Another problem is that George was born before 1809, the marriage date of Samuel and Mary. This is from his census ages in four different years. Yet on his death certificate his parents are listed as Samuel and Mary Worley. I would guess this means that either they adopted him or one of them had him from a previous marriage or relationship before their marriage.



 
Note   My conclusion that Samuel Worley of Ashe County was the son of Edmund and Martha is based on the following:

Conley Worley remembers that Giles and Mary Graham were uncle and aunt at some level to the Worleys. His older brothers used to spend summers at the Grahams (with Giles' son by then).

In the 1860 Ashe census, Giles and Mary Graham appear in Ashe Co for the first time with Samuel Worley living with them. They are found in the Floyd Co VA census in 1850 with a Samuel Whorley living with them then, 10 years younger. in that same census there are various Whorleys living with other families, most of them children:

With Posey Gilenwater family
Maria 9 born Franklin Co ( in 1860 census with Giles Graham family in Ashe Co, NC)
With Samuel Goodson family
Patsy 35 born Franklin Co
With Isaac Phlegar family
Rebecca 15
With Giles Graham family
Samuel 10
With Jonathan Terry family
Vina 14 born Franklin (marriage record 1856 of Louvina Worley d/o Edmond & Martha Worley to Henry Wood s/o Henry & Frances Wood)

If any of these children are Vina's siblings, then since Vina is the daughter of Edmund and Martha, then the siblings are also. We know Martha went by Patsy because she appears by that name in Ashe censuses with Henry Grogan, but the marriage record says Martha (1856).

We know that the Martha who married Henry Grogan and lived in Ashe is really the mother of Lavina who married Henry Wood because Vina and Henry had a son named Columbus and a Columbus Woods, grandson, lived with Martha and Henry in the 1880 census (Ashe).

Conley Worley remembers that "Viney" Wood was his grandfather's sister.

We know Rosabell is Martha's daughter because it says so on her marriage license to Thomas Jones (Ashe). We know Rosabell is Giles Graham's niece becase it says so in the 1880 census.

We know Giles Graham's wife is named Mary Moore.

There is a marriage record in Franklin Co VA in 1834 of a Martha Moore to Edmund Whorley.

If Rosabell is Giles' niece and Rosabell is Martha's daughter then Martha is either a sister to Giles or Mary. Giles did have a sister named Martha but she was born in 1832, too young to have a 10-yr-old son by 1850. So Martha Patsy is a sister of Mary, which fits the Martha Moore/Edmund Worley marriage record.

Conley's brother Edmund who is now deceased was named after some ancestor, according to his widow. His name is Edmund Spencer Worley and he was told that the ancestor he was named after had that same name. Columbus Wood named a son Edmund Spencer Wood.
 
Fact 1 1834  In 1834, at Floyd County, VA,, Edmund Worley was listed for personal property taxes.. 
Fact 1 between 1836 and 1837  Between 1836 and 1837, Moses Whorley was listed for personal property taxes in Patrick County, Virginia in 1835, 1836, 1838-1841, 1844-1845. This means he left Franklin County and moved to Patrick. He was the only Worley listed in Patrick County between the years of 1824 and 1850, except that in 1836 Edmund Worley was listed right beside him. This means that Edmund left Franklin/Floyd and moved to Patrick County to live near to Moses. This implies they were probably brothers..3 
Fact 1 1839  In 1839, at Floyd, VA,, Edward Whirley was listed for personal property taxes on May 13. William Moore was listed on the same date. Since I've never found any record of an Edward Worley anywhere near Floyd Co, I assume this must actually be Edmund..3 
Fact 1 1840  In 1840, at Floyd, VA,, Edward Whirley was listed for personal property taxes on March 2, not the same date as William Moore, who was listed on April 22. His name was listed directly before that of John Whirley, who was also listed on March 2, although neither of them were enumerated in the census..3

    Minnie Grubb verified that Jennie's parents were Columbus Wood and Malinda Ida Wood. She said Malinda was illegitimate and that before she married Columbus she was married previously. She said Columbus's parents were Henry Wood and Viney Wood. She would not have know them personally but she knew that Viney was Sam Worley's sister, making her parents "related". (She didn't know how to calculate kinship.) She promounced it "Vinnie".
