1870: John Mayfield is listed as age 59, thus born ca. 1811, but he is supposed to have bee n born 13 Jul 1817, so I think his age must be wrong here. He and his family, including marr ied son Sylvanus, are living together in Union Twp., Worth Co., MO. Here his wife's name i s spelled Juliette, and she is 41, born IN.

1880: Union, Worth Co., MO.1 He was born on 15 July 1817 at Kentucky. He was the son of Reuben Mayfield and Charlotte Boone. John Mayfield married Juliett(e) McAFEE on 26 November 1846 at prob. IN. John Mayfield died after 1880. He was Record Change on 5 March 2003.

     John Mayfield was born in 1726 at Essex County, Virginia / Caroline County, Virginia.1 He was the son of Abraham Mayfield and Elizabeth (?).1 John Mayfield married Mary Stanwix circa 1745 at Waxhaw Settlement, North Carolina; Hoyle Mayfield, 1994: "The marriage of John has been disputed by some researchers, however it appears her name may have been Stanwix, even if she was not the Dau. of Gen. Stanwix as grandchildren have this as a middle name. This John has been greatly confused with the Johns in Amherst County, Virginia. It is this researchers belief that this John was never in Amherst County but that he served in the Rev. War at or near age 50 and may be the one reported buried in Saluda River. They were reported 11 sons and a Dau., each researcher shows a different set, some of these are John; Abraham; Elijah; Elisha; Isaac; Jesse; James; Stephen; Samuel; William and Micajah.

Notes for John Mayfield:

I have been able to find nothing in the official records of any state or colony about this man. The only tradition which has come down to us is through his son Jesse Mayfield (probably his youngest son), who died in McMinn County TN in 1833. According to this McMinn County tradition, the family came to South Carolina after the Revolution and settled in the Greenville County area. John Mayfield's wife, Mary, was supposed to be the daughter of British General John Stanwix. For reasons fully discussed in the notes for Mary Stanwix, I consider this story about a poor colonial boy marrying the daughter of a famous British General to be complete hogwash!

LAND GRANTS AFTER THE REVOLUTION

However, I have no problem with the idea that the family migrated to South Carolina shortly after the end of the Revoutionary War and settled in the area which in 1786 became Greenville County. A study of the land grants issued to Mayfields in this area after the Revolution fully supports such a move.

A total of nine Mayfield land grants were issued after the revolution but prior to the year 1800. These grants, all in the SC Backcountry, are as follows:

Jesse Mayfield - 166 Acres, Ninety-Six District, 01 Jan 1787
Micajah Mayfield - 123 Acres, Ninety-Six District, 07 Apr 1788
Isaac Mayfield - 150 Acres, Ninety-Six District, 02 Mar 1789
Isaac Mayfield - 428 Acres, Ninety-Six District, 02 Jan 1792
Abraham Mayfield - 176 Acres, Ninety-Six District, 02 Apr 1792
John Mayfield - 303 Acres, Ninety-Six District, 07 Jan 1793
Abraham Mayfield - 425 Acres, Camden District, 21 Jan 1785
Elisha Mayfield - 162 Acres, Camden District, 03 Sep 1787
Abraham Mayfield - 022 Acres, Camden District, 05 Jun 1797

THE 1790 FEDERAL CENSUS FOR GREENVILLE COUNty SC

Also, the 1790 Federal Census for Greenville County SC clearly shows a group of five Mayfield households lying in close proximity to each other. These five households are:

Isaac Mayfield
Jesse Mayfield
John Mayfield
Mickagah Mayfield
Randolph Mayfield

Two other Mayfield households were also listed for Greenville - those of Thomas and Abraham Mayfield, but they appear to be geographically somewhat distant from the other five. The implication, although a very weak one, is that the five Mayfield's found in the same geographic area were fairly closely related, e. g., brothers or father and sons.

Notes for Mary Stanwix(??):

A legend has grown up concerning Mary Stanwix - that she was the daughter of British General John Stanwix. I consider this legend to be completely false for reasons which will be delineated below. Indeed, there is no real evidence that her maiden name was even Stanwix!

PUBLISHED VERSIONS OF THE JOHN MAYFIELD-MARY STANWIX LEGEND

There have been at least three published versions of the Stanwix legend that have appeared over the last 75 years or so. I reprint them as follows:

1) MARY MAYFIELD BIRGE LETTER (1922)

The folowing letter, written 11 October 1922, is the earliest published account, of which I am aware, concerning the purported Mayfield - Stanwix marriage. The letter was published in 1928, in a book entitled "The Millers of Millersburg" by John Bailey Nicklin, Jr., page 315:

"C.2.A. Station, Denton, Texas
"October 11 1922

"Mr. J. B. Nicklin, Jr., Chattanooga, Tennessee

"Dear Sir:

"I am sending you our line of the Mayfield family. it is mostly collected from data obtained from wills, deeds, and land grants.

"I have no copy of the book by Dr. Newton Mayfield.

"I should be glad to have Mr. Miller's line.

"When my daughter, Mrs. Mamie Birge Mayfield, was in the library at Washington, she found where Queen Elizabeth had been entertained at the old Mayfield manor in England.

"Did you ever read the book, "the Earl of Mayfield"?

"Very respectfully,

"(Mrs.) Mary Mayfield Birge

"The Mayfields came to America from Ireland. They were among the early settlers. John Mayfield married Rebecca Armitage in 1666 (New England Genealogy, Volume 5, 339).

"For more than a hundred years their descendants took part in defending "The Settlers" against French and Indians.

"John Stanwix, a British soldier, built forts for defense - one was completed in 1758 which was called Fort Stanwix, in honor of his name. (The Stars and Stripes were first raised in battle at Fort Stanwix.)

"John Mayfield married Mary Stanwix, General Stanwix's daughter, and moved to the northern portion of South Carolina. Defended against the Cherokee Indians; took part in the Revolutionary War, etc.

"John and Mary Stanwix Mayfield were the parents of John, Abraham, Elijah, Isaac, Micajah, Jesse and Stephen Mayfield.

"Jesse, son of John and Mary Mayfield, married Penelope Brumette, a French Huguenot, and settled on the Saluda River.

"Issue: Jesse, Pearson, William, Carter, Thomas, Brumett, Williams (named for General Williams of King's Mountain fame), Preshia, Hulda, and Elizabeth Mayfield. Most of them came to McMinn County, Tennessee, in 1870.

"Pearson is my great-granadfather. he is Charlie Mayfield's (of Cleveland) great-great-great-grandfather; he is Earle B. Mayfield's (of Texas, newly elected Democratic United States Senator) great-great-grandfather."

2) EDNA MAYFIELD'S VERSION (1939)

The following is an extrct from "Tennessee Records of McMinn County Tombstone Inscriptions" (typescript dated 8 Feb 1940), Vol II, Part I, pages 49-50:

"Copied by: Lawrence McConkey, Englewood, Tennessee
"Date: April 5, 1939

"Information from Miss Edna Mayfield, R.F.D. No. 4, Athens, owner of the Mayfield Family Cemetary.

"The first available record of the Mayfield family in this country is of John Mayfield who married Rebecca Armitage in 1666. This record is in the New England Genealogy Vol. 5, page 339, in the Library at Washington D.C. The next record is of another John Mayfield, born in 1735. This leaves a gap of possible two generations, between the two John's.

"In 1758, John Mayfield married Mary Stanwix, daughter of General Stanwix at Fort Stanwix, after its completion by her father. Fort Stanwix, or Fort Schuyler was near the present City of Rome, New York. John Mayfield and wife Mary Stanwix moved to near the Saluda Rive, Greenville District, South Carolina.

"He served in the war of the Revolution for American Independence, as a private in Captain Jacob John Lansing's Company, 3rd Regiment of New York Levies, commanded by Col. Morris Graham. He enlisted Aug. 1st, 1780, for a term of three months and his name last appears on a company muster roll dated, Schenectady, October 26, 1780.

"The children of John and Mary Stanwix Mayfield were: -- John, Abraham, Elijah, Isaac, Micajah, Jesse and Stephen.

"The following is a history of Jesse, son of John and Mary Stanwix Mayfield. Jesse Mayfield was born in 1770 and married Penelope Brummett in 1788. He was of English descent and she was French. They migrated from Greenville District, South carolina to McMinn County, Tenn., in 1820 and entered a boundry [sic] of rich land, one mile east of the present City of Athens. They brought slaves with them from South Carolina. There is a slave cemetary on their old Homestead. The family homestead has been continuously owned by some member of the family since its entry. They purchased other land besides what they entered.

"The children of Jesse and Penelope Brummett Mayfield were: Pearson, Carter, Precia, William, Hilda, Thomas Brummett, Elizabeth, Jesse and William. History of each child follows:

"Pearson, son of Jesse and Penelope, was born June 4, 1789, and married Nancy McJunkin, daughter of Samuel McJunkin, ...

" ... Members of the Mayfield family, have from the beginning been Civic Leaders. U.S. Senator Earl Mayfield, of Texas, was adescendant of Jesse and Penelope Mayfield."

3) MCMINN HISTORICAL SOCIETY VERSION (1997)

Further to the above, the following is an extract from the book "McMinn County Tennessee and It's People 1819-1997" (published 1997), page 290:

"Jesse Mayfield was the son of John Mayfield who was born in New York in 1735 and married to Mary Stanwix in 1758 at Fort Stanwix later known as Fort Schuyler, near Rome, N. Y. John served in the Revolutionary War in the 3rd regiment of New York levies. By 1790 he had moved to Greenville County, Ninety-Six District S. C. with his wife and family of seven sons.

"Jesse, the only member of the family who came to McMinn County was born in New York in 1770 and Married Penelope Brummett in 1788 in S. C. Jesse died in McMinn County intestate about September 29, 1833 leaving his wife who made a will on 12 February 1848 and it was proven in court 2 December 1850. ...

SENATOR S. G. MAYFIELD'S VERSION OF THE STANWIX LEGEND

The following notes of Senator S. G. Mayfield were provided by E-Mail to the Mayfield List by Linda of TN in September 1998:

"MAYFIELD Researchers,

" … I'll begin with a note that appears at the end of the "History".......

"Note: May 25, 1981

"This history of the Mayfield and Stanwix, McJunkin and Blythe families was compiled from the unpublished notes, letters and other research done by Sen. S. G. Mayfield from about 1912 through 1940 and even until just before his death in 1942. This was compiled by his grandaughter Mrs. Marian Riley Mayfield (address omitted), Cusseta, GA. Thousands of hours of time have been spent in the organizing of this material so that it can be preserved for our children and their children, etc. and not be lost to posterity.

"The spelling of some names may be incorrect, such as McJunkin. In some of the notes and letters it is McJunkin and in others McJunkins. From one source we may have a birthdate 1730 and in another 1731. I have endeavored to make it as correct as possible. At least future generations will have a starting point from which to begin their research.

"MAYFIELD and STANWIX, McJUNKINS and BLYTHE FAMILIES

"The Mayfields were of English-Scotch descent. The first family came from England to Virginia at an early date. We find that John Mayfield married Rebecca Armitage in 1660. Probably Owin Mayfield who was mayor of Cambridge England, 1672 was among the first to come to Virginia. George Mayfield, Esq. was a freeholder in Cambridge, March 29, 1722. Peter Mayfield's will was filed in NC in 1772. Tradition has it that all the Mayfields in America came from one family, and descendants radiated to the different parts of the United States. Many Mayfields took part in the Revolutionary War from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and other States.

"John Mayfield went to New York to take part in repelling the French and Indians.

"Col. John Stanwix was sent out from Philadelphia to take charge of the forces and during the war was sent up to Fort Schuyler, which is now Rome, NY. His defense of this fort which was besieged by great numbers of French and Indians for months was so gallant that the fort was afterwards named Fort Stanwix.

"Col. Stanwix with his wife and two daughters were in the fort. Among the troops was John Mayfield from Virginia and Samuel Mcjunkin who had come over from Tyron Ireland and located in Pennsylvania. These two young men took advantage of the conditions and their opportunities and married during the seige of the Fort. John married Mary Stanwix, daughter of Col. Stanwix and his wife and Samuel McJunkin married Sarah Bogan, the daughter of another officer.

"John Mayfield and Samuel McJunkin with others came south and the two war friends settled in Ninety-six District - McJunkin's portion being Union, Mayfield's being in what is now know as Spartanbug and Greenville. Both took part in the wars with the Indians.

"John Mayfield was promoted to Captain and made many gallant marches and fights against the Indians in what then was known as Cherokee Territory. He took the letters patent to land and Lt. John Stub #1765.

100 acres on Broad (looks like a 9Qt.??) page 164.
303 acres for military services 14th August 1792.
He bought large tracts of land on the Saluda and Tigers Rivers.

"John Mayfield during the Revolutionary War was know as Capt. John, (see Vol. 4, page 424, D.A.R. Reports.) He was a member of Peter Burns' Company, Sumter's Brigade.

"By his wife Mary Stanwix he left the following sons:

"(1) John Mayfield who married Mary Brandon, and who was a member of Van Swearengen's Company, Morgan's Rifle Regiment, Continental Troops. This son was wounded early in 1778 and died from the effects. His widow Mary bought of Thomas Brandon an additional tract of land adjoining the three hundred acres which her husband had bought Aug. 2nd, 1776. These lands lay on Brown's Creek. She with her four children received their proportinate part of the estate of John Mayfield.

"(2) The next oldest son was Abraham, who served in the Revolutionary War, and applied for a pension under the Act of June 7th, 1832. The application was rejected on the grounds of insufficient length of service. However the Stub book in the office at Columbia shows compensation to Abraham Mayfield for services. The other five sons were Elijah, Isaac, Micajah, Jesse and Stephen.

"Micajah Mayfield and wife Susannah owned land on the Middle Saluda.

"Jesse Mayfield (the great grandfather of S. C. Mayfield who was my grandfather) married Penelope Brummett and became the parents of William, Jesse, Carter, Thomas, Pershia, Hulda, Elizabeth, and Pearson Brummett b. 1789, posthumas child of Jesse and Penelope.

"Pearson Brummett Mayfield, the son of Jesse and grandfather of Senator S. G. Mayfield, married his cousin Nancy McJunkin, the oldest daughter of Samuel McJunkin, the son of Maj. Joe McJunkin, the son of Capt. Samuel McJunkin. Samuel McJunkin took letters patent to the following:

"Aug. 17th, 1786, 166 acres for military services, Ninety-six, now Greenville (See 12 Qt. 228). April 12, 1805, 86 Acres Greenville Co., 40 Qt 342. Sept 7, 1820, 100 acres Greenville Co, 46 Qt. 375.

"He bought:

"From Thomas Brommett, Book "G", p 262, 100 Acres; From William Carn, Book "P", 210; 95 acres from James Lower, book "H", 223; 175 acres from Benj. Harris, Book "M", 229; 60 acres from Thomas Duncan, Book "P", 295 16 acres inherited from the Brommett estate, besides the estate land of his father.

"Pearson Brummett Mayfield and his wife Nancy left the following sons: Samuel, who went to Texas; John, who died in Tennessee; William who died in South Carolina; Stanwix who died at Pea Ridge, Arkansas; James, who died near Sherman, Texas; Pearson Brummett, known as Judge Mayfield, who died at Cleveland, Tennessee.

"William Mayfield, son of Pearson Brummett and Nancy Mayfield, married Lillian Blythe, the daughter of David Blythe, son of William Blythe, son of Lt. Samuel Blythe, son of James Blythe. William and Lillian Mayfield were the parents of

"(1) Mary Melissa, who married William Birge;
(2) William David Mayfield who married Carrie Bond;
(3) Pearson K. Mayfield, who died unmarried;
(4) Stanwix Greenville Mayfield, who married Leda Kennerly;
(5) Absolam Blythe, d. y;
(6) John Gowen Mayfield;
(7) George Rolls, who married Eula Burns;
(8) Adelia Caroline who married Martin; and
(9) Kate Talley who married Dr. Milton William Ponder.

"Nancy McJunkin Mayfield was the daughter of Samuel McJunkin, the son of Maj. Joseph McJunkin, who was the son of Capt. Samuel McJunkin. Samuel McJunkin came to Pennsylvania in 1741 and married Anne Bogan prior to going to the seige of Fort Schuyler. Joseph McJunkin, who was afterwards major, was born in 1755 and the seige of Fort Schuyler was in 1757. Samuel fought in the Indian Wars, 1761-2-3. He was a prisoner with Cornwallis at the Battle of Cowpens, having been wounded previously at the Battle of Kings Mountain. He held the position of magistrate under the Colonial Government, and was originally a captain, but on account of his age surrendered his position and Joseph succeeded his father. Samuel died at Union, SC in 1808. Joseph McJunkin was the executor of his will, filed Bundle 5 page 33. Samuel was also a member of the Legislature at Jacksonborough in 1782.

"Major Joseph McJunkin was not born in 1756 at the McJunkin homestead on Tinkers, Ninety-six District, now Union County, as stated by Judge O'Neal. (in the margin - b. 22 Jun 1755...???) He married the daughter of Col John Thomas and left twelve children. He succeeded his father as captain of the company, fought at Robuck's Defeat and was captain before Charleston fell, was at the Battle of Kings Mountain, The Cowpens, Eutowville, and it is said he bore a charmed life. Before the Battle of Blackstock Ford, he was a major. He died in 1846 at Union Court House. By his wife Ann Thomas he left twelve children, to wit: John Thomas, James B., David Waters, Davis Lewis, Amelia Sarah, who married O'Keiff of a Georgia Company; Jane who married Alexander; Abraham, Benjamin, Samuel, Joseph, William and another daughter.

"Captain Samuel McJunkin took patent to the following lands;

"All references to lands are to the Secretary of State. Historic references are to Drapers Kings Mountain or to Howe's Presbyterian Church. References to administrations are to the respective counties Union, Spartanburg and Greenville, formerly parts of Ninety-six.

"David Blythe was in the War of 1812, at the seige to Georgetown and while there his cousin was in command of the British Man of War Boxer. … "

THE LIFE OF GENERAL STANWIX PER THE AUTHORITATIVE RECORDS

Thanks to Earle Mayfield and E. Clyde Mayfield I have been able to find four (4) authoritative records concerning the life of General Stanwix. They are provided below, with my comments added in brackets, as follows:

1) From "Gentleman's Magazine and Historical Chronicle," Volume XXXVI, December 1766 Issue, page 599:

"Monday 22

"A confrimation was received of the loss of the EAGLE, Capt. Rogers, from Dublin, on board of which was General Stanwix, his lady, his only daughter, a near relation and four servants, who all perished. The General was strongly solicited to leave the ship, with his family, soon after the storm began, but peremptorily refused, though the ship was leaky."

2) From "Gentleman's Magazine and Historical Chronicle," Volume XXXVII, March 1767 Issue, pages 164-165:

"As no authentic intelligence has ever been received of the EAGLE, Capt. Sugars, since the 29th of October last, the day she proceeded on her voyage from Dublin to Holyhead, there is all reason in the world to believe that every soul on board must have perished in the sea. Among the number involved in this fatal catastophe, was a family, considerable in point of rank and property, but much more respectable for the many excellent qualities by which every individual of it was so remarkably distinguished. With sorrow it is that I am obliged on this mournful occasion, to mention the names of General Stanwix, his lady, and daughter. The General, having passed the whole summer in reviewing the troops in Ireland, was returning to attend his service in the British parliment, and they therefore not unjustly may be said to have suffered in the double vocation of an officer and a representative. He died Lieutenant-General of his Majesty's forces. Lieutenant-Governor of the Isle of Wight, Colonel of the King's regiment of foot, and member of Parliment for Appleby. He was nephew and heir to Brigadier General Stanwix, who served with reputation in the wars of Queen Anne and his first comission was dated in 1706.

"The long peace that ensued after the treaty of Utrecht, rendered it extremely difficult for military gentlemen to rise in their profession. Accordingly at the commencement of the war with Spain in 1739, Mr. Stanwix was no more than an old captain of grenadiers. During the peace, however, he had applied with diligence to his duty, and had acquitted himself with uncommon applause in the character of an adjutant. In 1741 he was promoted to a majority of marines, and in 1745 to be Lieutenant-Colonel to a regiment which was raised by the Marquis of Granby, on account of the Rebellion. In 1749 he was appointed equerry to his Royal Highness Frederick, Prince of Wales; in 1752 he was advanced to the government of Carlisle, which city he then represented in parliment; and in 1754 he received the commission of deputy quartermaster-general of his Majesty's forces.

"Such was his situation at home, when, by the untoward aspect of our affairs in the plantations, by the defeat of General Braddock, and the alarming progress of the French, it became necessary to support the colonies with vigour, and for that purpose to send over large supplies of troops from hence, and to levy others on the spot. In that critical juncture, when an object of no less importance than the vast continent of North-America was at stake, Mr Stanwix was among the foremost of those who voluntarily offered to engage in that new and hazardous service. In January 1756 he was constituted colonel commandant of the first battalion of the Royal American regiment; and his only son [Thomas], a youth of great hopes, was at the same time appointed a captain in that battalion. Not long after their arrival in America, this promising young gentleman was carried off by a violent fever, the consequence of the climate. Severe as this shock must have been to a tender and affectionate parent, Mr Stanwix never lost sight of the duty he owed to his country, nor did he entertain a thought of returning to England, till such time as, by the glorious success of his Majesty's arms, and the almost total annihilation of the power of France on that continent, the British empire in America was established on the most firm and solid foundation.

"In 1754 Mr Stanwix had the misfortune to lose his first truely excellent Lady. In 1763 he married his second, a dughter of Marmaduke Sowle, Esq; commissioner of appeals in the excise, and formerly field officer in the army; a man of singular worth and honour in every relation of life: Her mother, a Holmes of the Isle of Wight, had the satisfaction of feeling at once in her three brothers, a Lord, a General, and an Admiral. By this lady, whose very extraordinary qualifications it would indeed be difficult to enumerate, his domestic happiness was again completed; and though it did not please God to bless them with any children, yet was this consideration the less material, as the General still had remaining, out of the issue of his former marriage, an amiable and accomplished daughter, the joy of his heart, the delight of his old age.

"It might now have been hoped, that the General, after threescore years spent in the service of his king and country, should have lived, for some time, at least, to enjoy the sweets of public peace, and private felicity. There was the greater reason to expect a prolongation of his days, as notwithstanding his advanced age, he had all the life, spirit, and activity of a much younger man. With an easy constitution, and an upright carriage, his faculties were unimpaired; his understanding sound and vigorous, Prividence; however, to whose insearchable ways it is our duty to submit with patience and resignation, thought fit to order it otherwise; and to imbitter the last moments of his life with the dreadful circumstance of seeing all that was most dear and valuable to him involved in the same inextricable calamity."

3) From the British "Dictionary of National Biography" (published London: 1898), Volume LIV, pages 86-87:

"STANWIX, JOHN (1690?-1766), Lieutenant-General, born about 1690, was nephew and heir to Brigadier-General Thomas Stanwix. Thomas Stanwix was a captain in Colonel Tidcomb's foot in 1693, served in Flanders under Marlborough, and in Spain, and was appointed governor of Gibralter on 13 Jan. 1711. He was Colonel of the 12th foot from 25 Aug. 1717 until his death; he was also governor of Kingston-upon-Hull, and sat in parliment as member for Carlisle from 1705 to 1715; for Newport, Isle of Wight, in 1721; and for Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, in 1722; he died on 14 March 1724-5.

"The nephew, John, entered the army in 1706, became adjutant of his regiment, and captain of the grenadier company, and in January 1741 he was given a majority in one of the new marine regiments. On 4 Oct. 1745 he was made lieutenant-colonel of a regiment raised by Lord Granby on account of the Jacobite insurrection, and disbanded in 1746. In 1749 he was appointed equerry to the Prince of Wales, in 1752 governor of Carlisle (for which city he had been elected M.P. in December 1746), and in 1754 deputy quartermaster-general.

"At the beginning of 1756, in consequence of Braddock's defeat, the royal American regiment (62nd foot, afterwards 60th, and now the king's rifle corps) was raised, and Stanwix was made colonel-commandant of the 1st battalion from 1 Jan. and was sent to America. In 1757 he was employed in Pennsylvania. In January 1758 he was made brigadier, and was sent up the Hudson to Albany, and thence to Oneida portage, where he built Fort Stanwix. A plan of this fort is given in vol. iv. of the 'Documentary History of New York.' In 1759, while Wolfe was taking Quebec, Stanwix was guarding the Western border of pennsylvania, and repairing Fort Duquesne, renamed Pittsburg. He was promoted major-general on 25 June 1759.

"He returned to England in August 1760. On 19 Jan. 1761 he became lieutenant-general, and on 14 Dec. he was made colonel of the 49th foot, from which he was transferred on 11 April 1764 to the 8th foot. He was appointed governor of the Isle of Wight in May 1763. His first wife having died in 1754, Stanwix married, on 20 April 1763, a daughter of Marmaduke Sowle, commissioner of appeals in the excise in Dublin, but had no children by her. On 29 Oct. 1766, after making some military inspections in Ireland, he left Dublin for Holyhead with his wife and daughter. The vessel, the EAGLE, was leaky when she started, and was lost at sea. He was on his way to London to attend parliment, having been elected M. P. for Appleby on 8 April 1761.

4) From "British Officers Serving in America 1754-1774" (published 1894), compiled by Worthington Chauncey Ford, we find the following information:

Stanwix, John - Col. Com't, 62nd Regiment, Date of Commission - 01 January 1756.

Stanwix, John - Maj. Gen., Date of Commission - 25 June 1759.

Stanwix, Thomas - Captain, 62nd Regiment, Date of Commission - 18 January 1756.

[COMMENT: The Captain Thomas Stanwix cited above is obviously the son of General John Stanwix, the same who died in America in 1756.]

DISPROVING THE LEGEND

Based on the above quotations, it is obvious that there is no way for John Mayfield to have married a daughter of John Stanwix.

Mary Stanwix1

F, #1014, b. between 1704 and 1730, d. after 1790
     Mary Stanwix was born between 1704 and 1730 at Virginia.1 She married John Mayfield, son of Abraham Mayfield and Elizabeth (?), circa 1745 at Waxhaw Settlement, North Carolina; Hoyle Mayfield, 1994: "The marriage of John has been disputed by some researchers, however it appears her name may have been Stanwix, even if she was not the Dau. of Gen. Stanwix as grandchildren have this as a middle name. This John has been greatly confused with the Johns in Amherst County, Virginia. It is this researchers belief that this John was never in Amherst County but that he served in the Rev. War at or near age 50 and may be the one reported buried in Saluda River. They were reported 11 sons and a Dau., each researcher shows a different set, some of these are John; Abraham; Elijah; Elisha; Isaac; Jesse; James; Stephen; Samuel; William and Micajah. No one has shown who the daughter was. Of these Jesse m. Penelope Brummett and Abraham m. Jane or Patsie Jones. All appear to have gone to SC."1,2,3

As of circa 1745,her married name was Mrs. Mayfield. Mary Stanwix died after 1790 at Union County, South Carolina.1

     Abraham Mayfield was born circa 1678 at Old Rappahannock County, Virginia; Essex County was formed in 1692 from Old Rappahonnock, which was abolished.1 He was the son of Robert Mayfield and Sarah (?).1,2 Abraham Mayfield married Elizabeth (?) circa 1710.1 Phil Norfleet; A Return of Execution is issued to the Sheriff of Essex County against Abrahm Mayfield in the lawsuit Gibson vs Mayfield. The sheriff's return is that "the within named Abraham Mayfield is not to be found within my bailiwick."3 (Hoyle Mayfield, 1994) Abraham was in deeds in Essex County, Virginia in 1727 and was in Spotsylvania County, Virginia 1729-1739 - probably the same Abraham in Orange County later. (Orange County was formed in 1734 from Spotsylvania County).4 Abraham Mayfield witnessed a power of attorney from John Blackly to Thomas Smith on 5 June 1727 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.5 He sells his father's land (125 acres) to a certain Robert Brooke by indenture (Phil Norfleet) on 2 January 1727/28 at Essex County, Virginia.6 He lived between 1729 and 1739 at Spottslyvania County, Virginia; Spotsylvania County was formed in 1721 from parts of Essex, King and Queen, and King William.4,7 He is a Defendant versus Anthony Foster, Assignee of James Booth, Plaintiff in an action of debt on 6 May 1729 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.8 He is appointed overseer of Bush's Road on 1 August 1732 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.9 He is allowed payment for four days attendance in court as a witness in the case of Francis Kirkley against William Bartlett on 7 May 1734 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.10 He is a defendant versus Benjamin Walker, Gentleman, Plaintiff in an action of trespass on 4 September 1734 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.11 He is mentioned as a member of a grand jury on 6 May 1735 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.12 He acquires 200 acres of land from the Administrators of the estate of Larkin Chew, deceased on 1 July 1735 at Saint George's Parish, Spotsylvania County, Virginia.13 He is mentioned as a member of a grand jury on 3 May 1737 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.14 He conveys 200 acres of land to Bloomfield Long of Essex County. Elizabeth, wife of Abraham Mayfield, relinquishes her right of dower on 4 October 1737 at Spotsylvania County, Virginia.13 Phil Norfleet; After sale of his land, Abraham Mayfield apparently left Spotsylvania County in late 1737 or early 1738 as the following court entries imply:

4 April 1738: Attachments against the estate of Abraham Mayfield are obtained for Archibald McPherson and William Johnston
1 May 1738: Ordered that John Durrett be overseer of Bush's Road in the room of Abraham Mayfield "who is removed out of the County."15 He died in 1778 at Granville County, North Carolina.1,2

-J. Hoyle Mayfield, 1994. He died in 1715 at Essex County, Virginia.7 His estate was probated on 16 August 1715 at Essex County, Virginia. These notes from Hoyle probably intermingle facts concerning the father and son -clm

Robert would have been about 94 when he died in 1714, if he is the original Robert who came to this country in 1652. All of the children were adults at the time of his death. He very likely came over as an indentured servant and probably had to work seven years to gain his freedom. He would not have been free to marry without his master's permission; therefore, he probably married late in life. -J. Hoyle Mayfield, 1994
