544. Thomas Elder, born Unknown; died Unknown.
Notes for Thomas Elder:
The Elder DNA Project results suggest that our Elder line is descended through the Franklin County, Pennsylvania Elder line.  Just how that linkage goes is uncertain at this time.

Children of Thomas Elder are:

i. John Elder, born 1762 in Chester County, Pennsylvania; died January 19, 1835 in Salona, Center County, Pennsylvania; married (1) ?; born Unknown; died Unknown; married (2) Mary Dougherty November 07, 1793 in Thomas Elder's residence, White Deer Township, Pennsylvania; born November 1766; died December 30, 1848.
We know of this son because of his Revolutionary War pension application #W24117.  He was living in Centre County, Pennsylvania at the time of his pension application, which states that he was born in 1762 in Chester County, Pennsylvania.  While residing in White Deer Valley, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania he volunteered and served as an Indian spy and ranger in the company of Captain John Foster, under Colonel John Kelly.  His application details several enlistments - from sometime in the summer of 1778 for 8 1/2 months; from sometime in 1779 for 4 months; from March 1780 for 8 months and from April 1781 for 2 months.
The pension file identifies his wife as Mary/Polly/Molly Dougherty, whom he married in his father's residence in White Deer Township.  The file identifies their children as Margaritt/Peggy, James, John, Thomas, unnamed child because of a torn page in family bible, Robert, William, Mary, and Ann.  There is another child, Joshua born 18 March 1783, by an unknown mother.

560. Solomon Tharp, born October 16, 1750 in Delaware; died August 06, 1847 in Cass County, Michigan. He was the son of 1120. John Tharp and 1121. Elizabeth Jordan. He married 561. Hannah Tate July 16, 1774 in Kennett Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Notes for Solomon Tharp:
According to Tharp researcher, Elaine Tharp Dean, Solomon enlisted in the 4th Regiment of the state of New Jersey January 15, 1777 and served as a private under the command of Col. Ephraim Martin.  During his time in the service he received pay of $6.66 per month.  According to the paymaster, he was last paid for the month of January 1779, so we can assume that he was discharged about then.  During his service he was at Valley Forge and at Morristown, New Jersey, the headquarters of General Washington, and at the siege of Yorktown where General Cornwallis was defeated.  After his Revolutionary War service he and his young family moved to the Shenandoah area, in Culpepper Co., VA, near the Rapidan River.  The family moved to Bedford Co., VA about 1799 and then to Champaign Co., OH, settling at King's Creek.  They were in this area before 1811, and then by 1820 had removed to Logan Co., OH.  It was here that Hannah (Tate) Tharp died, according to the census, between the years 1830 and 1840.
Solomon went on to Cass Co., MI with some of the children in 1842.  He died there in 1849 and was buried near Cassopolis, Cass Co., MI.  The cemetery no longer exists.  Some graves were removed to Reames-Norton Cemetery, though there is no evidence that the grave of Solomon was among those relocated  Nevertheless, a grave stone, with adjacent bronze plaques, has been installed there by the DAR (about 4 rows from the western boundary and 10 plots in from the southern boundary).
The plaque on the left bears his name and that on the right reads:
Solomon Tharp, New Jersey, Pvt. in N.J. Regiment Revolutionary War 1753-1849.
A memorial to Solomon Tharp, ancestor of many buried here, Revolutionary War Soldier, 1777-1778.
Was at Valley Forge 1777-1778.
Fought for his countrymen's liberty at Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, Springfield and Yorktown.
He marched with the New Jersey Continental Army through West New York, Senecca Indian settlements.
Eternal Vigilance and Sacrifice and the Price of Liberty.

561. Hannah Tate, born March 19, 1754 in Millcreek Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware; died Abt. 1835 in Logan County, Ohio. She was the daughter of 1122. William Tate and 1123. Martha Dixon.
Notes for Hannah Tate:
The Tates were Quakers with the Kennett Monthly Meeting in Chester County, Pennsylvania.  She was excommunicated on July 14, 1774 in the said Kennett Monthly Meeting.  The meeting minutes read: "Whereas, Hannah Tharp (formerly Tate) hath had a Right of Membership amongst us the People called Quakers but for want of a Strict attention to the Dictates of Truth in her Heart hath So far Erred as to have Carnal knowledge with him that is now her Husband before Marriage and Accomplished Said Marriage by a Magestrate.  Therefore for Clearing the Society from the Reproach Such Conduct Ocassions we Account the Said Hannah Tharp no member thereof Until by Repentance and Amendment of life She shalt Condemn her Said Outgoings which that she may Happily Experience is our Sincerest Desire.  Given forth by our Monthly Meeting of Kennett held the 14th of the 7th Month 1774 and Signed by order of the Society.  By Caleb Peirce, Clerk".

572. Adam Guthrie, born possibly Bet. 1740 - 1745 in probably Ireland; died Bef. August 20, 1827 in Cumberland County, Kentucky.  He married 573. Mary Anderson possibly Abt. 1770 in probably Augusta County, Virginia.
Notes for Adam Guthrie:
"First Families of Tennessee"; East Tennessee Historical Society; 2001 states that Adam Guthrie was born in Ireland, with little else known of Adam's early years.  There are no land, tax or militia records for Adam in Augusta County, Virginia yet I suspect he was in Augusta County in the 1765 to 1770 timeframe.  One reason is because the will of George Anderson of Augusta County, which was proved in the year 1789, identified Adam as his son-in-law.  George and his family were very early settlers in the South River area of the Shenandoah River in the northeast extreme of the Berkeley Manor tract and it is assumed that Adam immigrated to this same area.  This was an area of significant Scotch Irish immigration and it is supposed that Adam migrated to this area, met Mary Anderson and married her there, probably in the 1765-1770 timeframe.  It may be that he was drawn to this area by relatives who had preceded him, as according to the "Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia, Vol. 1" by Lyman Chalkley; The Commonwealth Printing Co., Roslyn, Virginia; 1912, page 211 "James Brown and Adam Guthery granted certificates as nephews and heirs at-law of James Dunlap, deceased, who served as Lieutenant in Capt. Hog's Company of Rangers and was destroyed by the enemy at the fort in the upper tract of the South Branch of Potomac in 1758, and James and Adam are the only legal heirs now in this State."  Further description is noted in the Fort Seybert Massacre extracted from "Chronicles of Border Warfare" by Alexander Scott Withers, Edited and Annotated by Reuben Gold Thwaites; Stewart & Kidd Company, Cincinnati; 1895, "Seybert's Fort was situated on the South Fork, twelve miles northeast of Franklin, in Pendleton County.  At the time of this invasion, there was a fort located on the South Branch, garrisoned by Capt. James Dunlap and a company of rangers from Augusta county.  Preston's Register states, that on the 27th of April, 1758, the fort at which Capt. Dunlap was stationed, was attacked and captured, the captain and twenty-two others killed; and, the next day, the same party, no doubt, attacked Seybert's Fort, killing Capt. Seybert and sixteen others, while twenty-four others were missing.  Washington at the time, placed the number as 'about sixty persons killed and missing.'"  Lastly, "Fincastle and Kentucky, Virginia - Kentucky Records and History Vol. 1" by Michael L. Cook and Bettie Anne Cook; Cook Publications; 1987 records a lawsuit of March 3, 1773 in Order Book No. 1 County Court for James English v. Adam Gutterey, on command.  Suit being agreed, case dismissed.  This book also records a subsequent lawsuit of May 3, 1774 in Order Book No. 2 County Court for James Inglis v. Adam Guthry, on attachment.  Isaac Riddle and George Armstrong entered themselves as sureties for the defendant.  Robert Topp not appearing as garnishee, attachment ordered against him.  Continued.  It would seem this demonstrates that Adam was living in Fincastle County at that time.  There were several John, James and William Andersons in the region at this time, but not enough information is given to distinguish them as Augusta County Andersons.
Some Anderson relation explored the Southwest territory that would become East Tennessee at an early day.  In "Augusta County, Virginia in the History of the United States" by Boutwell Dunlap; The Kentucky State Historical Society, Frankfort; 1918, page 54 "Colonel John Sawyers, who conducted Gilbert Christian and William Anderson, both from Augusta county, in an exploring trip as far as Hawkins county, Tennessee, in 1768-69."  In what seems at first to be somewhat conflicting information, letters from George Christian to Lyman C. Draper appear to place Adam in territory that would eventually become East Tennessee in and around the same timeframes as mentioned above.  These letters contain interesting information about the early settlers and history of East Tennessee.  Some of the content as reprinted in "The King's Mountain Men" by Katherine Keogh White; reprinted for Clearfield Coumpany, Inc. by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc.; Baltimore, Maryland; 2002 includes, "My father Gilbert Christian was a native of the State of Virginia, born and raised in Augusta county about the year of 1723-4 (sic), and was the son of Robert Christian, there were two other brothers, John and William.  All three settled on Christian creek, which took its name from the three brothers.  They were the first settlers of that country."  This area was in Beverley Manor not far from where the Andersons settled.  "Father was married in 62 or 3 to Margaret Anderson, daughter of George Anderson of Middle river, Augusta Co., Va. (my note - this would make Gilbert Christian and Adam Guthrie brothers-in-law) ... I think from what I can find out since I wrote you, Father must have moved to Holston in 72 or 3, made a temporary settlement on the waters of Reedy Creek, seven or eight miles from Holston river from whence he removed in the Autumn of '75 to Holston river, at the mouth of Reedy creek opposite the Long Island, where we remained until the next summer at the breaking out of the Cherokees."  This area would have been near where current day Kingsport, Tennessee is located.  With boundaries not well established in those days this location might have been considered either Virginia or North Carolina territory, and in fact, Fincastle County extended all the way down to what would eventually become the Tennessee state line.  The location on Reedy Creek, seven or eight miles from Holston river would almost certainly have been in Fincastle County territory and, in fact, another researcher identifies Gilbert Christian in 1774 as a Lt. in the Fincastle County militia and the commander of Kings Mill Fort built on the North Fork of the Reedy Creek.  Christian goes on to write, "At this time they were five children of us, one daughter the oldest of us.  The first intimation we had of the approach of the Indians was given to us by a trader named, I think, Ellis Harlan...On the first intimation of the hostile movements of the Cherokees, the frontiersmen left their farms and collected in Stations or in some cases several families banded together for mutual defense as was the case with us.  On rec't of the intelligence bro't by Mr. Harlan we were removed some miles to James Clendennin's where they were eight or ten families collected I think with intent to build a fort.  But after collecting at this place a second express arrived, more alarming than the first...So urgent was the news that an attack was apprehended for that same evening.  It was thought it would begin about three o'clock.  At this time Father was home having gone to the farm.  Our horses all in the woods, mother had a brother and brother-in-law in company.  Her brother in bad health, each of those had a wife and one child...But a little before sunset Mother and all her children were all mounted and on the road for the interior...We then proceeded at a rapid pace until dark closed in, which checked our progress, but we were flying for our life, so the difficulty was encountered cheerfully.  We must have traveled some 15 miles this night.  Was joined next day by Father, who conveyed us some forty miles to a relation, Mr. Trimble, where he left us and returned to Eaton...From Trimble's Mother with her brother John Anderson and her Brother-in-law, Adam Guthery, proceeded to Augusta where we remained until the Autumn of '78, when Father, who had stayed on the Holston, went on with a wagon and brought us home."  What was being described here became the Battle of Island Flats.  Is it possible that Adam was in Augusta County circa 1770, then Fincastle County by 1773 before going to the territory that was to become East Tennessee, then back to Augusta about the time mentioned in Chalkley's?  Or was there another Adam Guthrie in Virginia at this time?
George Christian's letter clearly identifies Adam Guthrie as the same Adam in George Anderson's will, and identifies Adam as a very early settler in the Southwest territory that would eventually become East Tennessee.  But did Adam return to the Holston and Long Island region in 1778 when the Christian family returned?  Land records seem to suggest that he did.  According to North Carolina warrants in the territory that would become Tennessee as recorded in "Tennessee Land Entries: Washington County, 1778-1796, Vol. 1-3" by Dr. A. B. Pruitt, 1997:
Dr. Pruitt identified grant file #1789 in Sullivan County whereby on October 2, 1779 Henry Simpson acquired 100 acres on waters of Reedy Creek adjoining Col. Pendleton and "Adam Guthery" property.

Dr. Pruitt further notes grant file #1827 in Sullivan County whereby on October 6, 1779 "Adam Guthery", for William Tatham, acquires 500 acres adjoining Anderson's Bottom and Nathan Pages property, includes said Guthery's improvement where he lives and on both sides of Redy Creek.

And finally Dr. Pruitt notes grant file #1829 in Sullivan County whereby on October 6, 1779 "Adam Guthery", for George Anderson a minor orphan of John Anderson son of "George deceased", acquired 200 acres on Reedy Creek adjoining Nathan Page and John Kitt properties on both sides of the creek and includes said Anderson's improvement.

He was still in the area in 1787 when his name (Adam Guthery) is among those on a petition filed to form the State of Franklin from the North Carolina western territory, as was his brother-in-law Gilbert Christian and his nephew George Christian.  Also included is the signature of James English.  This is very likely the James English/Inglis from the Fincastle County lawsuits above.  A transcription of this petition, including a transcription of the names of all those who signed the petition, can be found here (opens a new window which can be closed to return to this page).  Adam's signature can be found on the reverse side of the petition.
Adam stayed on in this territory, as evidenced by the following deed of Greene County North Carolina District, Deed Book 3, page 454:
  12 Jan 1793

The 23d day of October 1794 by
James Stinson Clk.
This deed predates Tennessee statehood, and so was part of North Carolina's Greene County in North Carolina's western territory.  This property lies in what is now current day Sevier County, Tennessee.  Adam's property bordered that of James Hubbard (Hubbert) and was on the French Broad River just above Bryant's Ferry.  James was noted for his hatred of the Indians because his father's family in Virginia had been cruelly murdered by the Shawnees.  His hated was so deep that his actions were not always honorable as demonstrated by his command to murder Old Tassell, a Cherokee, and his son under a flag of truce in 1788.  The second wife of James Hubbard was Elizabeth Anderson, possibly a relative to Mary Anderson Guthrie.  Adam maintained ownership of this property to his death and passed it on in his will.  While many other grantee properties in the immediate area were identified as military grants, Adam's property was not identified as such, further verifying that while he had many opportunities, Adam did not serve, militia or otherwise.
While Adam retained ownership of this property, he did not live there for the rest of his life.  According to "The Kentucky Land Grants" by Willard Rouse Jillson; Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, Maryland; 1971, Adam and two of his sons purchased land in Cumberland County, Kentucky as below from Vol 1, Part 1, Chapter IV, page 324:

These grants are among a group of records entered from 1797 to 1866 known as Grants South of Green River.  These were known sometimes as "Headright Claims," and were based upon an act of the Kentucky General Assembly of December 21, 1795.  Before Kentucky became a state, Virginia had reserved all the lands in Kentucky south of Green River as bounty land for its soldiers.  Until 1797 only soldiers could enter a survey within this large land area.  After Kentucky became a state and gained control of the remaining vacant land new legislation opened up this area south of the Green River to any persons possessed of family and over twenty-one years of age.  The only condition was they must have been legitimate settlers on the land for one year before they came into actual possession.  Until 1820 Illwill Creek was about 12 miles north of the Kentucky/Tennessee state line.  This is because the current northern Tennessee state line was under dispute the first two decades of the 19th century.  The latitude of 36 degrees and 30 minutes north was established by royal charters as the boundary line between the colonies of Virginia and North Carolina.  By extension that latitude was to be the line dividing Kentucky (a Virginia possession) and Tennessee (a North Carolina possession).  In 1779 a survey team was charged with running this line to the west to physically mark the boundary between Kentucky and Tennessee.  The line that was extended to the Tennessee River was called the Walker Line after Dr. Thomas Walker, a survey team member from Virginia.  It was found after the fact that due to improper corrections the Walker Line was actually about 12 miles north of the true 36 degree, 30 minutes latitude.  Kentucky refused to release claim on this strip of land of 12 miles width until after a compromise made February 4, 1820 fixed the Tennessee and Kentucky boundary line as we know it today, giving that 12 mile strip to the jurisdiction of Tennessee with the right to issue grants given to Kentucky.  This places Illwill Creek just on the Kentucky side of the current state line and still located in Cumberland County until 1836.  In 1836 Clinton County, Kentucky was created, taking the southeast portion of Cumberland County and Illwill Creek then became located in the southwest corner of this new county.  It is now a major feeder for Dale Hollow Lake.
It is likely Adam divided his time early between Cumberland County and his property in eastern Tennessee in the early days.  I say this because he is not found in the 1810 Cumberland County census although two of his sons are found there.  He is also not found in east Tennessee tax list of that time, and eastern Tennessee census records for 1820 and before are lost.

It is possible Adam was in Tennessee at the time of 1810 census, or it may be that he was just missed by the census taker.  Adam was enumerated in Cumberland County in 1820.

Note that Adam's enumeration has 2 females of age 26 and under age 45, clearly his two daughters, but no female age 45 and above.  Adam's will as transcribed below, identifies all family members except his wife, which seems to indicate he was a widower at the time of his death.  The 1820 census would seem to show that he was already a widower at that time.  Adam lived out his life in Cumberland County, dying in 1827.  Following is the transcript of his will, written May 1, 1825 and proved August 20, 1827.
  WILL OF ADAM GUTHRIE (GUTHERY)
Adam Guthery, deceased
In the name of God, amen, I, Adam Guthery, of the state of Kentucky and County of Cumberland, being sick and weak in body but of perfect mind and memory thanks be given unto God, calling unto mind the mortality of my body and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die, Doth make and ordain this my last will and testament that is to say Principally and first of all I recommend my soul into the hands of almighty God, that gives, and my body I recommend to be buried with a decent christian burial at the direction of my Executors, nothing doubting but at the general Resurrection I shall receive the crown?  I again by the mighty power of God, and as touching such worldly Estate wherewith it has pleased God to bless me in this life, I give and dispose of in the following manner and form to-wit:
I first give to my son James Guthery, one gray mare that he has now in his possession and to George Guthery, one cow; and to Thomas Guthery a plantation on which he now lives, and to Polly and Nancy Guthery the Plantation on which I now live; also a plantation in east Tennessee on French Broad River on which I formally lived; also the balance of my stock, farming utensils and household furnature to be equally divided between E. Polly and Nancy and if anything can be recovered on an obligation I now hold on John Anderson of forty pounds, it is to be equally divided among all my children.
I also appoint Thomas Guthery and George C. Craft the executors of this my Last Will and Testament and I do hereby utterly Disallow, revoke and Disannull all other testament, wills, legacies by me in anywise before made.
Willing and confirming this and no other to be my last Will and Testament. In witness whereof I hereunto set my hand and seal this 1st day of May in the year of our Lord 1825.
 
Adam Guthery (Seal) In Presence of Michael Craft William Craft
 
State of Kentucky, Cumberland County Sct.
 
I, Milton King, Clerk of the County Court for said county do certify that the within will of Adam Guthery, deceased, was proved in open court at the present August term by the oath of Michel Craft and William Craft, the two subscribing witness there to be recorded and I have truly recorded the same together with this certificate in my said office, this 20th day of August, 1827.  Milton King
Adam's will gives us the names of his children alive at the time of his death.  We have no way at this time of knowing whether he and Mary had other children who did not survive.  By 1830 George (my direct ancestor) and family, along with Sidwells living nearby in Cumberland County, had moved to Fayette County, Illinois.

573. Mary Anderson, born Bef. March 18, 1744 in probably Augusta County, Virginia; died Bef. 1820 in probably Cumberland County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of 1146. George Anderson, Sr. and 1147. Elizabeth ?.
Notes for Mary Anderson:
From "The Tinkling Spring Headwater of Freedom" by Howard McKnight Wilson; The Tinkling Spring and Hermitage Presbyterian Churches; Fishersville, Virginia; 1954, Mary Anderson, daughter of George, was baptized on March 18, 1744 by John Craig, first permanent pastor in frontier Augusta County in 1740 and founder in 1741 of the Stone Meeting House.  It is thought that Adam married Mary, probably sometime about 1770, and most likely in Augusta County, Virginia.  No marriage bond has been found to certify that it was Mary Anderson who married Adam, but it is surmised via circumstantial evidence.  First, it is clear from George Anderson's will and from George Christian's letter to Lyman Draper that Adam was the son-in-law of George and brother-in-law of Margaret Anderson Christian.  Now there were no other daughters of George born between 1740 and 1749.  Anyone born after this point would likely be too young to have married Adam and be in Fincastle County and the Southwest Territory in the mid-1770s.  So at this point Mary looks to be the best bet.  The only question is whether George had an older daughter who immigrated with the family when they moved to Augusta County.  When George made his oath in Orange County, Virginia Court on May 22, 1740 regarding who he imported into the region one Frances Anderson's relation to George is unknown.  If this was a daughter of George, it is possible she could have been Adam's wife.  But taking into account the approximate birthdate of Adam's last child, Mary would have given birth at age 45 while Frances would have been 50 or older - which would be stretching it some.  For these reasons I believe Mary to be Adam's wife.
Nothing more is known of Mary.

Children of Adam Guthrie and Mary Anderson are:

i. Child Guthrie, born Bet. 1770 - 1776; died Unknown.
We know from George Christian's letter to Lyman Draper that Adam and Mary had a child when they vacated the Holston area.  This would have been the mid-1776 timeframe.  This timeframe does not fit those of the children identified in Adam's will, as we will see below.  At this time the identity of this child is unknown.  We do not even know the sex of this child.  There was a William Guthrie who married a Hannah Smiley February 1, 1800 in Greene County, Tennessee.  There is a Hannah Guthrie on page 184 of the 1810 Cumberland County, Kentucky.  This is 3 pages away from where James and George are enumerated.  At first glance this could be William's widow except that she has 4 children in the 10 to 20 age group which does not fit with a marriage in 1800, unless she was a widow when William married her and those 4 are from a previous marriage.  It is possible they migrated to Cumberland County with James and George and William died before 1810.  William could be a possibility if all these conditions were just right.  Also, in Lawrence R. Guthrie's book "American Guthrie and Allied Families" as transcribed on this web site, there is mention in Book Two - page 334 of a William Guthrie of Mill Creek Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware with a son, Adam, who was born in 1752.  It is possible this Adam is the one who migrated south, married Mary Anderson (more likely in 1772-73 with a 1752 birth date), and named their first son William in honor of Adam's father.  These are a lot of speculations, with the William of New Castle County being the biggest stretch, but one thing is for certain - Adam and Mary had a child prior to 1776.
ii. James Guthrie, Sr., born Abt. 1777 in most likely Augusta County, Virginia; died September 20, 1852 in Clinton County, Kentucky; married Sarah Atchley January 07, 1808 in Cumberland County, Kentucky; born November 28, 1785 in Botetourt County, Virginia; died Bet. 1870 - 1880 in probably Cumberland County, Kentucky.
According to George Christian's letter to Lyman Draper, when Adam and Mary vacated the Holston region, they retired to Augusta County, Virginia until 1778.  According to the 1850 Clinton County, Kentucky census, James was born about 1777, making Augusta County his most likely birth place.  James and George are shown in Adam's narrative as purchasing land in Cumberland County, Kentucky shortly after 1800.  Based on the birth date and location of George's second child, James and George were likely in Cumberland County by 1803-1804.  James lived out his life in this same area, ending up in Clinton County after that county was formed to include a portion that was formerly in Cumberland County.  His 1810 and 1820 census entries are included in Adam's narrative above.  In 1830 he and Sarah are found on line 7, page 135 of Cumberland County with 5 boys and 2 girls; then on line 9, page 332 of 1840 Clinton County with 4 boys and 2 girls; and finally on line 10, page 206A of 1850 Clinton County where James is listed as age 73, born about 1777.  In 1850 daughter Lydia, age 25 is the only child still at home.  In 1860 Sarah is found living in her son, Albert's, home on line 34, page 191 of Clinton County and Lydia, age 37, is also in the household.  In 1870 Albert is found in Cumberland as Albert Guthery, page 29, line 40.  This household includes Sarah, age 84, and sister Lidda (Lydia), age 45.  Sarah is not found in the 1880 census.  Albert is found yet in Cumberland County, page 155, line 3, and living with him is his sister Lydia, age 54, but Sarah is not among them.  It is assumed Sarah died between 1870 - 1880 in Cumberland County.
286 iii. George Guthrie, Sr., born Abt. 1780 in Western North Carolina Territory (current Tennessee); died Aft. 1840 in Fayette County, Illinois; married Hannah ?.
iv. Mary Guthrie, born Abt. 1781 in Western North Carolina Territory (current Tennessee); died Bet. 1850 - 1860 in possibly Hamilton County, Tennessee.
This is the Polly mentioned in Adam's will.  It appears Mary and Nancy remained single throughout their lifetimes.  In the 1830 Cumberland County census, Polly is found on line 26 of page 135 as head of household, with brother Thomas Guthrie on line 27.  Polly's entry shows 2 females enumerated as of 40 and under 50 years of age.  Polly and Nancy are not enumerated separately in 1840, but it is thought they may be living with brother Thomas and his family.  By 1840 Thomas and his family had moved to Hamilton County, Tennessee.  They are found on line 14 of page 171 of that census, which shows among others 2 females of 40 and under 50 and 1 female of 50 and under 60.  One of the females of 40 and under 50 would be Thomas' wife, and though one of them would be wrongly enumerated in the 40 - 50 age bracket, it is thought the other 2 females above age 40 are Mary and Nancy.  This assumption is made because of the 1850 census entry for Thomas' family on line 24 of page 405B of Hamilton County, Tennessee:
  Elizabeth Guthrie 60  F   6000 Virginia Not sure why Elizabeth, but thought to be Mary Canterbury Guthrie, Thomas Sr.'s widow
  Mary Guthrie 69  F     Ten. Thought to be Mary (Polly) Guthrie, daughter of Adam and Mary
  Elizabeth Guthrie 35  F     Ky. Daughter of Thomas Sr.
  Thomas Guthrie 32  M Farmer   Ky. Thomas Jr.
  Mary Guthrie 28  F     Ten. Wife of Thomas Jr.
  James Guthrie 26  M Farmer   Ky. Son of Thomas Sr.
  George Guthrie 25  M Farmer   Ky. Son of Thomas Sr.
Nancy no longer appears, and is believed to have died between 1840 - 1850.  Mary does not appear after the 1850 census and is believed to have died between 1850 - 1860.
v. Nancy Guthrie, born Bet. 1782 - 1788 in Western North Carolina Territory (current Tennessee); died Bet. 1840 - 1850 in possibly Hamilton County, Tennessee.
See notes for sister Mary above.
vi. Thomas Guthrie, born Abt. 1789 in Western North Carolina Territory (current Tennessee); died 1845 in Hamilton County, Tennessee; married Mary Canterbury September 08, 1809 in probably Sevier County, Tennessee; born February 05, 1792 in Southwest Territory (western North Carolina or eastern Tennessee); died 1860 in Hamilton County, Tennessee.
Notes for Thomas come from R. Scott Guthrie's web site and Floyd Owsley's web site.
Thomas Guthrie, son of Adam and Mary (Anderson) Guthrie, was born in the Southwestern Territory, along the French Broad River (present day Sevier County, Tennessee) in 1789.  On Thursday September 08, 1809 in that same area he married Mary, who was known as Polly Canterbury, daughter of William Canterbury and Betseyann Lawson.  Shortly after his marriage to Mary "Polly" Canterbury, Thomas Guthrie and wife moved from Sevier County, Tennessee to Cumberland County, Kentucky.  It is supposed that Adam Guthrie also made the move to Kentucky at the same time.  Thomas Guthrie's two brothers, James and George, (and possibly William) had already moved to Cumberland County.
  Providence Baptist Church Records - Sevier County, Tennessee
1798 - On the third Saturday July and the day preceding the Church of Christ met and Divine Service being performed Mary Canterbury and Jane Wood Joined the Church by Experience.
1810 - October 20th third Saturday the Church of Christ met after worship proceeded to the affairs of the Church - a letter of dismission granted to Polly Gutherie.
While living in Kentucky all of Thomas Guthrie's children were born and the family remained there until 1834.  In 1834 Thomas, wife Polly, their nine children and possibly Thomas' sisters, Mary and Nancy, left Kentucky and returned to Tennessee as pioneers in the lands then opening for settlement in the Indian Territory of Southeast Tennessee.  For a time the family lived in Roane County.  It is known that the Guthrie family first lived at the site of the former Indian town of Toqua.  By 1838 the family was noted as living at King's Point in what is now Hamilton County, Tennessee.  Also living at King's Point about this same time was Absolem Sivley and wife Rebecca (formerly Rebecca Canterbury), Mary (Canterbury) Guthrie's sister.  History texts written about the area note that Thomas Guthrie was the first permanent white settler on the South side of the Tennessee River in the former Cherokee Indian lands, known then as the Ocoee Land District.  In 1839 Thomas was issued an occupant land grant by the State of Tennessee for 160 acres in this area and the grant was signed by Newton Cannon, Governor and James K. Polk.  The family lived for a time here at King's Point, which is the present day location of the swimming area near Chickamauga Dam in Hamilton County, Tennessee.  After a short time the family acquired more land and moved north along the river, permanently settled and began farming near Wolf Tever Creek and the Tennessee River about one mile north of old Harrison, Tennessee.  This would become home to four generations of the Guthrie family until the late 1930's when the family was relocated by the Tennessee Valley Authority in order to build the Chickamauga Reservoir.
The exact burial location of Thomas and Polly Guthrie is questionable.  It is possible they are buried on land currently in the possession of the Tennessee Valley Authority near King's Point and noted in W. P. A. records as "Old Guther's" Cemetery.  The few stones located at this cemetery are unreadable.  Glenn Guthrie, a great grandson, witnessed and helped with the relocation of Guthrie family graves during the T.V.A. period of the 1930's.  He stated there was uncertainty about some of the graves and markers.  It is also possible that their graves are among the more than one hundred and fifty unreadable stones located in the Harrison Cemetery in Hamilton County, Tennessee.

 

576. James Roberson, born Abt. 1736; died January 3, 1828 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee. He married 577. Mary Fuqua Abt. 1756 in Virginia.
Notes for James Roberson:
This parentage for Stephen of James and Mary Fuqua Roberson is proposed based on DNA results showing Stephen being descended from a common ancestor of those known to descend from James and Mary.  Information that attempts to tie Stephen with this family is presented in the family pre-1810 history noted in the last paragraph.
Nothing is known of James' ancestry, although much has been speculated with much of the speculation published.  Some information was published based on interviews with great grandsons of James.  A significant amount of time would have passed between those generations and with no documentation such as bible records or the like the results serve as a starting point from which to check for supporting documentation.  This is not unlike the early history of son Stephen as written by Fred Robertson (see Stephen's link below).
One approach purports the parentage of James Roberson is James Robertson and Rebekah Royston of Albemarle County, Virginia.  This would seem to make sense given the name of James' first born, Roysdon.  Except that no documentation exists to support that assertion, and DNA results in fact show them not to be of the same Robertson family.  Another assertion shows James as Scottish born and the son of an Andrew Roberson and Elizabeth Monroe.  Another researcher of this family paid professional reserachers to look into this parentage and they were unable to find any evidence that would support it.
James married May Fuqua circa 1756.  Much of James and Mary Roberson's early history (pre-1810) can be found in "The Stephen Robertson Family of Brown County, IN" pages found on this web site (available from the home page or from this link).  That dialog shows James moving to Bledsoe County, Tennessee along with 3 or 4 of his children.  He died there January 3, 1828 (date comes from a memorandum in the possession of a descendant) and is buried in "the Old Indian Burial Ground" on the west side of Sequatchie Valley, about 8 miles from Pikesville.

577. Mary Fuqua, born Abt. 1740 in Lunenburg County, Virginia; died Abt. 1822 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee.
Notes for Mary Fuqua:
We know Mary's maiden name as a result of her father's will.  Ralph Fuqua's will was filed in Bedford County, Virginia on July 24, 1770 and in it he mentions three times that Mary Robinson, one of his daughters, is to inherit property.  Her birth date is estimated based on information found in a 1761 Bedford County deed conveying property from her father to she and her husband, and an estimate of the birth year of their first born son, also named in that deed.  Mary's birth location is assumed based on where the Fuqua family was located at the time of her estimated birth year.
This parentage of son Stephen is assumed based on DNA testing (see the early history per James' narrative above).  Part of Stephen's history is the biographical article concerning son Joseph and his comment that Stephen was one of eleven children who sought refuge in a fort during the Revolutionary War.  The following are thought to be children based on documentation and association, largely in Bledsoe County, Tennessee.  Stephen has been added based on DNA results, and additional children could be Moses, Joseph, David, and possibly Thomas, per the pre-1810 history narrative.

Children of James Roberson and Mary Fuqua are:

i. Roysdon Roberson, born Abt. 1756 in Bedford County, Virginia; died Abt. 1837 in perhaps Missouri; married Mary Lou Stovall perhaps Abt. 1778 in Bedford County, Virginia; born Abt. 1764 in Virginia; died Unknown.
Roysdon is clearly identified as the eldest son of James and Mary in a 1761 deed whereby Ralph Fuqua sells 100 acres of Bedford County land to James and Mary with the stipulation that after their decease the land would pass to "Roisdon Roberson Eldest son".  His wife was his first cousin, being the daughter of a maternal aunt.  After the migration of this family to Washington County, North Carolina in 1779 Roysdon is identified as owning property there, and is again located in Bledsoe County, Tennessee in 1815 along with his parents and several siblings.  After that point there is some question as to which Roysdon is which among the Robersons who migrated to Maries County, Missouri.
Possible children include Roysdon Jr., William and Stephen.
ii. William Roberson, born November 7, 1759 in Bedford County, Virginia; died January 20, 1816 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee; married Rhoda Sartain; born 1766 in Bedford County, Virginia; died 1837 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee.
With the Robersons leaving Bedford County in 1779, which would place Rhoda as age 13, it is likely they married in the North Carolina western territory.  Her parents are believed to be John Sartain and Mary Vance, and John Sartain is found in records near where the Robersons lived in North Carolina and Tennessee.  They are both buried in the Roberson burying ground on the estate of James Roberson, Jr. in Bledsoe County.  After William died, Rhoda married second Andrew C. McDonough, Sr., the grandfather of President Andrew Johnson.  She is buried between her two husbands and her tombstone inscription reads "In Memory of Rhoda Sartain; Wife of William Roberson and Andrew McDonough; Born 1766; Died 1837."
William was in Knox County, Tennessee by 1792 and purchased property on both Beaver Creek and the East Fork of Poplar Creek.  The latter property placed him in Anderson County when it was formed from Knox County on November 6, 1801.  The commissioners appointed to locate the county seat were William Lea, Linza Johnson, William Standifer, William Robertson, Joseph Grayson, Solomon Massingale and Hugh Montgomery.  The William Standifer named here and William Roberson had numerous transactions in Knox and Anderson Counties and were evidently close friends.  William Standifer and brother Isaac, along with other close friends, moved to the area that was to become Bledsoe County, Tennessee in 1806.  By 1807 William and John Roberson are also there with their names appearing on a petition to form a grist mill.
William and Rhoda are believed to be parents of 10 children - James Lafayette, Jacob, Elizabeth, John, William, Jemima, Jesse, Isham, Rhoda and Orpah.
iii. James Roberson,Jr., born November 6, 1761 in Bedford County, Virginia; died April 6, 1836 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee; married Sarah Vernon January 1785 in probably Washington County, North Carolina; born Unknown; died Unknown.
According to James' Revolutionary War pension papers, S1718, he and Sarah were married January 1785, likely in Washington County, North Carolina.  James settled in Washington County, North Carolina in 1779 when his family moved there from Bedford County, Virginia.  According to his Revolutionary War pension application early in the spring of 1781 the Cherokee Indians (under the instigation of the British) committed many atrocities and including the murder of the wife and all the children of a Mr. Kuykendall in the neighborhood where the Robersons lived.  James enlisted as a volunteer and was assigned under Lieutenant Kuykendall (same man whose family was killed) to guard and protect the fort where local citizens had taken refuge (including the Roberson family).  This assignment lasted until September, after which he was discharged.
Immediately after this discharge he joined Captain Landon Carter as a volunteer soldier in a mounted horse company to go against the British.  The company was placed under the command of Col. Robertson, which then joined with Col. John Sevier and marched to join General Marion at Santee Swamp.  One engagement resulted in his company taking 90-100 British prisoners and delivering them to Gen. Marion at Santee Swamp.  After 3 months service he was discharged.
His final service occurred in 1782 when he again volunteered as a mounted horse militiaman, this time under Captain Newman.  Col. John Sevier was raising soldiers to quell the Cherokees who were still harassing settlers in the western territory.  The company rendezvoused with others at the Big Island on the French Broad River from which place they marched on the Cherokee Nation.  They destroyed a great quantity of their corn, took many prisoners and killed a few Indians, after which they marched home and he was discharged.  This enlistment was for another 3 months, and the last military engagement for which he volunteered.  His pension application was approved and he received $40 per annum as benefit.
He is found in Knox County, Tennessee by 1792 and goes to Bledsoe County with several of the family members between 1810-1820.  The children of James and Sarah who have been identified thus far include Isaac G., John, Martha, Rebecca, Andrew J., William C., Carry, and Ally.  Since they were married in 1785 and the eldest child listed, Isaac, was not born until March 10, 1804, there are most certainly more children as yet to be found.
iv. John Roberson, born Bet. 1764 - 1770 in Bedford County, Virginia; died Unknown.
Nothing more is known about John.  John first appears in Knox County among those who are documented as early as 1792 as having mustered in the Knox County Regiment, Hamilton District Militia, Territory South of the Ohio.  John is also found as witness on Knox County deeds before appearing in Bledsoe County, Tennessee.  It is possible the John Roberson who married Nancy Owens on September 13, 1797 in Knox County is this John.  Security for this marriage bond was Charles Conway.  Charles married on October 19, 1796 in Knox County one Eliza Robertson with David Robertson serving as security.  I have not been able to identify Eliza, but David is one who I think is possibly a son of James and Mary.  With these potential relationships, it could very will be that this John is the one who married Nancy.
v. Elizabeth Roberson, born Bet. 1766 - 1772 in Bedford County, Virginia; died Bef. December 12, 1840 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee; married Layton Smith 1792 in probably Greene County, North Carolina; born 1756 in Kent or Sussex County, Maryland; died December 12, 1840 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee.
Elizabeth married Layton Smith, his given name also given as Laton on his Revolutionary War pension application and also as Leighton at various times.  According to his pension application, S1778, he was born in 1756 in the county of Kent or Sussex near the sea (according to what his mother told him), but in what state he was unable to say.  It was actually Maryland.  He was living in Washington County, Virginia when in the spring of 1775 he volunteered under the command of Captain William Cocke and marched against the Cherokees.  Their first encampment was Eaton's Fort about 4 or 5 miles from the Long Island of Holston where several skirmishes with the Indians occurred.  From here he returned to Virginia to find his relations forted at Jo. Blacks in Washington County.  While there he was engaged in skirmishes against the Indians under Andrew Colville.  He was assigned responsibility of guarding the fort until August 1775 when he went with Col. Christy's company on expedition against the Cherokees on the Tennessee River.  He was there until after Christmas when he returned to Washington County, Virginia.  Upon his return in the spring of 1776 he was again assigned to Captain William Cocke and to guarding a fort.  He was then assigned in the late summer to guarding the forts and the frontier on the Clinch River.  He states that he had brothers and often went in their place.  He stated that at various times he was under the command of Col. Shelby, his brother Captain Jno. Shelby, Captaim Lewis, and Captain Colville continuing from the fall of 1776 to the spring of 1779.  At this point he embarked on his final action, with Col. Shelby in his expedition against the Indians at Chickamauga on the Tennessee River.  Upon returning to Washington County in the fall of 1779 he retired from activity.  Although some have identified him as participating in the Battle of King's Mountain (October 7, 1780), his pension paper given no indication of activity after the fall of 1779 and make no mention of King's Mountain.
Layton states in his pension application that he lived in Washington County, Virginia for 6 or 7 years after the the war and thereafter moved to Greene County, Tennessee where he lived about 4 or 5 years.  It is likely here that he met Elizabeth and they were married in 1792.  He states that he then moved back to Washington County, Virginia where he lived about 6 or 7 years and from there moved to Knox County, Tennessee.  Knox County Deed Book B-1, page 18, 28 August 1795, records a purchase for Layton from Stockley Donelson for £40 Virginia currency a tract of 200 acres on the waters of Bullrun Creek.  When Anderson County was formed from Knox County his property fell in the newly formed Anderson County and he lived there for about 15 or 16 years, from which he moved to Bledsoe County where his pension application request was made in 1833.  Layton was approved for a pension of $80 per annum for his service until his death December 12, 1840.  At this time Elizabeth was already deceased.
Children of Elizabeth and Layton include Leighton Kinsey, Phoebe, Moses, William, Martha, Aaron and Elizabeth.

628. Thomas Caton/Kitten/Kitton, born likely Between 1740-1750 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland; died Abt. February 1795 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. He was the son of 1256. Edward Kitten, Jr. and 1257. Rachel Rowles. He married 629. Susanna Plummer Abt. 1772 in Maryland.
Notes for Thomas Caton/Kitten/Kitton:
Thomas Caton/Kitten/Kitton is an early settler in the Amwell Township, Washington County area of Pennsylvania, appearing there before Washington County was created from Westmoreland County on March 28, 1781.  His name is found on a petition requesting the formation of a new state, to be called "Westsylvania", that was circulated for signatures between 1776 and 1780.  Between the years 1770 and 1780 both Pennsylvania and Virginia claimed the area now known as southwest Pennsylvania.  The overlapping claims often led to open hostilities, narrowly avoiding bloodshed at times.  The petitions were presented to the Continental Congress asking that the disputed territory be organized into this new state.  In describing the length and breadth of the territory to be so organized the presenters went ahead to state that 25,000 families had settled with the described boundaries since 1768.  According to "The Ten Mile Country and Its Pioneer Families" by Howard L. Leckey; Closson Press; Apollo, PA; 2001 a petition was found in the Library of Congress that contained the names of pioneer settlers of what is now Fayette, Washington and Greene Counties.  Among the names are found Thomas Kitten on page 148 and Daniel Caton on page 142.  One wonders who Daniel Caton is.  The names are not in close proximity on the petition, so there is no guarantee the two individuals were in close proximity geographically.  It is an interesting question since one of Thomas' sons is Daniel.  This citation places Thomas in the future Washington County area as early as 1780, and likely earlier since son George says on the 1850 and 1860 censuses he was born in Pennsylvania.
On page 199 of the "Pennsylvania Archives, Series 3, Vol. XXIII, Rangers on the Frontiers - 1778-1783" one Thomas Kitten is listed as a private in Captain Abner Howell's unit of Frontier Rangers.  Frontier Rangers were the Minute Men of the Frontiers.  They formed volunteer units, under elected officers, and were subject to call at a minute's notice, although their service was not continuous like that of the Continental Army.  Their primary function was to guard the forts of the area and patrol the line of settlements to prevent the Indians in alliance with the British from raiding the frontier country.  I have not found any record of any engagements that Thomas might have been involved in.  It is assumed he participated in the Rangers during most if not all this period as all men over sixteen and under forty-five years were held as minutemen in the militia of Pennsylvania and expected to march at a minute's notice until the close of the Revolution.  He was at least activated some during this time based on "Pennsylvania Archives Series 5, Vol. IV" page 715 where Thomas Kitten, private, is listed among "Soldiers of the Revolution who received pay for their services taken from Manuscript Record, having neither date nor title, but under 'Rangers on the Fronters, 1778-1783' was published in Vol. XXIII, Penna. Archives, Third Series, by the Former Editor."  During some of this period Thomas was also in Captain Abner Howell's 3rd Battalion Washington County Militia ("Pennsylvania Archives, Series 6, Vol. II, Muster Rolls Relating to the Associators and Militia of the County of Washington") appearing on page 119 as a member of the 3rd Class under the name Thomas Ketton.
Note: Some researchers attribute a title of Captain for Thomas and state that it is because he served as Thomas Caton in the New Jersey Continental Line starting in March 1776 and serving for the term of the Revolutionary War.  While there was such a Thomas Caton, there is not enough proof to suggest he is the same person who is the subject of this narrative.  In fact, I suggest it is not the same person.  The above notes suggest Thomas was present in Washington County during some, if not all that time.  Thomas' son George is thought to be born circa 1774, and he gave his birth location as Pennsylvania in the 1850 and 1860 censuses.  Thomas of this narrative seemed to be known as Kitten/Kitton/Ketton until the late 1780s and 1790s where he began to assume the surname Caton.  There was a Thomas Caton in New York State, in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, in Frederick County, Virginia, and other locations I am sure.  There is simply not enough information to assume Thomas of Washington County, Pennsylvania was the Thomas Caton of the New Jersey Line.  Thomas of Washington County was known as Captain because of his militia rank described below during Indian uprisings in 1792.
"Pennsylvania Archives, Series 3, Vol. XXVI, Provincial Papers Warrantees of Land in the County of Washington, 1784-1892", page 573 lists Thomas Kitton for 250 acres with date of survey of October 18, 1784.  The date given in the Archives is titled date of survey, but is actually the date of the warrant.  In a 1905 copy of the original survey "The above is a Draught of a Tract of Land Sittuate on the waters of ten mile Creek Callel's Fox Hill containing two hundred & ninety acres fourty nine perches & usual allowance.  Surveyed March the 2d 1785 In pursuance of a Warrant Granted to Thomas Kitton & dated at Philadelphia October the Eighteenth 1784.", signed Jno Hoge D.S.  This appears to be formalization and expansion of Thomas' prior homesteading as recorded by tax lists of Washington County, Pennsylvania prior to and following the warrant:
Year Township Acres Horses Cows Sheep Negro Value
1781 Amwell 100 12 5 1 118£
1782 Amwell 100 12 5 1 118£
1785 Amwell 150 3 4 36£
1787 Amwell 180 4 4 52£
1788 Amwell 190 4 4 1 48£ 5shillings
1789 Amwell 190 3 4 1 34£
All of these citations show Thomas as a settler in Amity Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania by 1780 and as early as 1776, with identified militia activity during the Revolutionary War.  He also continued to support his community after the War by leading a militia company on a 35 day engagement commencing June 16,1792 (Pennsylvania Archives Series 6, Vol. V, pages 569- 571).  Thomas was Captain of a unit of 59 militiamen, which included Henry Vankirk as one of two Sergeants.  The Captain of a militia unit was often chosen by the unit to serve as their leader and usually meant he was held in high regard by the men, who would have been local settlers with whom Thomas would have interacted on a regular basis.  This particular engagement is described in more detail in a document posted on the internet by The Southeastern Ohio Digital Shoebox Project (www.digitalshoebox.org).  That document "Book: Ohio Records and Pioneer Families 1971-1999" contains "extractions from Volume 12 (1971) through Volume 34 (1999) with reference to Jefferson County, Ohio", a publication of the Ohio Genealogy Society.  This article is entitled "Ohio River Front Guards 1792, Jefferson County, Ohio" and reads "Names of the men who guarded the river front the summer of 1792 - stationed at four points - the main body at Yellowcreek Blockhouse, 12 at Spillers Creek (now Goose Run or Port Homer), 12 at Croxon's Run, Toronto and 12 at Cable's Blockhouse at Island Creek.  Payroll of a party at Washington Co., Pa. Militia under command of Capt. Thomas Caton to repel hostile Indians."  The locations identified in the article can be found in the northern part of Jefferson County along the Ohio River.  The payroll given in the article matches that printed in the Pennsylvania Archives listing above.  On page 572 of the above Pennsylvania Archives Captain Thomas Caton and Company are noted as being ordered on duty again October 18, 1792 - this time for 20 days for "the removal of a party of the Six Months Militia from the frontier of Washington County and at the request of Major McCully and the Inhabitants."  According to "Early Records of Washington County, Pennsylvania" by Raymond Martin Bell; self-published; Washington, Pennsylvania; 1979, "Thomas Kitten was an Amwell Township Supervisor in 1787" - another indication of the high regard his neighbors had for him.
Thomas has been shown to have been in that area that was to be Washington County as early as 1780 and perhaps 1776.  James Veech published "The Monongahela of Old; or, Historical Sketches of South-Western Pennsylvania to the Year 1800", copyright 1892.  Included in the material is a "List of Settlers in Fayette and in Contiguous Parts of Greene, Washington & Westmoreland Counties, in 1772: Copied from the Official Assessment Rolls of Bedford County for 1773".  In 1772, and until the erection of Westmoreland in 1773, Bedford county embraced all of southwestern Pennsylvania.  Thomas does not appear on these rolls, thus it is possible that he did not arrive in southwestern Pennsylvania until sometime after 1772, but before 1776-80.
Thomas died intestate February 1795 in Amwell Township.  His children are identified in "Estate Records, 1781-96 and Deed Records, 1782-85 in Washington County, Pennsylvania" by Raymond Martin Bell; self-published; Washington, PA; 1977, page 3, "CATON Thomas; bd 95; ch 96 (George, Milce m Thomas Praul, Susannah, Daniel, Priscilla, Dorsey, Agnes)," where "bd" means administration bond and letters granted (i.e. 1795) and "ch" means children named in estate distribution or partition.  The probate file shows wife Susanna was administratrix for the estate.  Thomas was very active in the county, and left several entangled debt transactions to work through in the administration of the estate.  As a result, the probate was not closed out until the year 1806.  Most researchers have identified 1794 as the year of Thomas' death, but I believe it to be closer to February 1795.  The estate probate file is found in Washington County Probate Files Book C, File #26, Year 1806.  The second item in the probate file was an IOU from Thomas Caten to Adam Gardner where Thomas acknowledged he owned Adam 5 shillings 6 pence for the act of "laing a mill spindle" on October 24, 1794, and 1 shilling 6 pence for the act of "making 2 hooks and one Clip and Welding a Clip" on December 6, 1794 for a total debt of 7 shillings.  On the bottom of the debt note William McFarland, a Justice of the Peace for Washington County, noted that Adam Gardner appeared before him on May 21, 1795 to swear that the debt noted was just and true and that he had not been compensated for same.  Thus Thomas was alive in early December 1794, but dead by mid-May 1795.
Another debit note was presented for money owed for "wiskey" sold to Thomas Kitton by James Neilson.  The last entry on the ledger was "February 3, 1795 for two 1/2 pints of wiskey in the amount of 1 shilling 2 pence."  Washington County Justice of the Peace William Meetkerke reported on April 1, 1795 that James Neilson appeared before him to prove the amount of the debit note.  This now seems to narrow the timeframe to February - March 1795.  One of the earliest payments by Susanna in fulfillment of her estate duties came May 1st, 1795 for payment of 1794 county taxes.  But the document that seems to fix the month more clearly, in conjunction with the above noted debts and associated dates, is the statement of the Administratrix Bond.  "Know all Men by these Presents, That we Susannah Caton - relict of Thomas Caton late of Washington County deceased - and Gabriel Blakeney and William Meetkerke Esquires of the town of Washington and county aforesaid are held and firmly bound unto James Marshel, Esquire, Register for the Probate of Wills and granting Letters of Administration in and for the county of Washington, in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in the sum of one thousand five hundred pounds, to be paid to the said James Marshel, his successors, administrators or assigns: To which payment well and truly to be made we bind ouselves jointly and severally, for and in the whole, our heirs, executors and administrators, firmly by these presents.  Sealed with our seals.  Dated the twenty first day of February in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety five."
As the probate process is winding down in 1806 a couple of documents with essentially the same message confirm the appropriateness of this date.  Both documents have to do with a debt owed by Thomas Caton to William Meetkerke which was unsettled at the time Thomas died, and for which Susanna, as administratrix of the estate, had employed George Caton to settle same with the transfer to William of a certain number of hogs.  This document begins, "Washington County, February 24, 1806.  Personally before me the Subscriber one of the Justices of the Peace in and for said County came William Meetkerke who being duly Sworn as the Law directs, deposith and Saith that at the decease of Thomas Caton, late of Amwell township in Said County which happened Sometime in the early part of the year 1795 ..."

629. Susanna Plummer, born Abt. 1758 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland; died February 5, 1824 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of of 1258. Yate Plummer, Sr. and 1259. Priscilla Lamar.
Notes for Susanna Plummer:
Susanna appears in Thomas' narrative above as the administratrix of his estate.  Susanna Caton appears as head of household in the 1800 Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania census, page 696 along with Theophilus Caton and George Caton.  I have not been able to locate a marriage license for she and Thomas, so how do we know her surname is Plummer?
According to Archives of Maryland Online, Volume 625, page 5, General Assembly December 4, 1820 - February 19, 1821 Session Laws:
Passed Dec 14. CHAP. IX.
Deed made valid. An Act to make valid the Deed therein mentioned.
Proviso. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Maryland, That a deed

executed by a certain Susannah Caton, late Susannah Plummer of Washington county, in the state of Pennsylvania, duly acknowledged by her attorney Joseph Talbutt, of Frederick county, in the said state of Maryland, on the seventh day of June, the year eighteen hundred and nineteen, to Yate Plummer of Frederick county, for a tract or parcel of land called Plummer's

Pasture, lying in the county of Anne Arundel, purporting to for one hundred and twenty-seven acres of land more or less, as recorded on the records of Frederick county on the twenty first

day of June eighteen hundred and nineteen, but not recorded in the land records of Anne Arundel county until the twelfth day of April in the year eighteen hundred and twenty, shall be as effectual to pass the lands therein mentioned, and thereby intended to be conveyed, from the grantor to the grantee, as if the same had been recorded in the land records of Anne Arundel county within the time prescribed by law; Provided, that nothing contained this act shall be construed to impair the rights of any bona fide purchasers of said property, without notice of said sale.

This provides a good summary of the deed dated May 25 1819 where Susanna sold her rights to Yate for $159.70 (Liber JS-9, folios 108-111).  This deed/summary clearly fixes her as Susanna Caton from Washington County, Pennsylvania and tells us her maiden name was Plummer, while also providing a couple of leads to follow up on.  Who was Yate Plummer?  Why was the property in Anne Arundel County, Maryland?
The name Yate is unusual enough as to make it easy to hopefully find more information.  The will of a Yate Plummer written September 1, 1763 and probated August 31, 1764 in Anne Arundel County (Liber 32, folio 341) includes "... To sons: Robert, Daniel, Thomas and James, tract called 'Plummer's Pasture' to be divided between them Profits from iron ore to wife and children: John, William, Yate, Robert, Daniel, Thomas, James, Susannah, and Elizabeth Plummer..."  So it appears Susanna was selling to brother Yate Plummer, Jr. her interest in Plummer's Pasture willed to her by her father Yate Plummer, Sr.  Richard Dwight Prall in his book "The Prall Family, 1st Edition"; self-published; Albuquerque, NM; 1990, page 377 provides the following information:
Testamentary proceedings, 1.46, pp 133-4. Libel action in Anne Arundel County March Court 1774: "Priscilla Plummer & other against Thomas Kitten.  Be it remembered that on the 20th Nov. 1773 was filed the following libel to wit: To the Honorable Wm. Fitzhugh Esq. Commander General and Judge for Probate of wills and granting administrations within the province of Md.  The libel of Priscilla Plummer, John Plummer, Yates Plummer, Robert Plummer, Daniel Plummer, Thomas Plummer, and James Plummer sheweth that a certain Eliz. Pummer the dau. of aforsaid Priscilla and sister of the same John, Wm. Yates, Robert, Daniel, Thomas, James Plummer lately departed this life Intestate unmarried and without issue that the father of the same Eliz.; viz. Yates Plummer died in the life time of the same Eliz.; that the same Eliz. in her life time and at the time of her death was possessed of some personal estate and that letters of administration thereon without the knowledge or privity of your petitioner have been granted a certain Thos. Kitten who intermarried Susannah Kitten the only other child of the same Priscilla [note: Priscilla being the widow of Yate Plummer, Sr.] your libellant therefore humbly conceived the said Letters of Administration illegally granted and that the preverences ought to be given your libellant or some of them pray your honor to take the matter into consideration revoke and grant new letters of administration to some one of your libellants as you may apprehend right a proper & that they will pray etc.  James Tilghman 3d per libellant.  Which being read and heard it was agreed by consent of parties and ordered by the Commander General that letters be revoked and letters now be granted to John Plummer one of the libellants which was done accordingly."
This seems to cement the Thomas Kitten and Susanna Plummer relationship and the Susanna Plummer relationship to the Yate Plummer, Sr. family of Anne Arundel County, Maryland.  This also appears to place Thomas Kitten in Anne Arundel County, and to place them in Anne Arundel County in 1773.  This libel action does not identify Thomas and Susanna as being from Washington County, Pennsylvania or any other "foreign" location and it is doubtful that if they lived in Washington County, Pennsylvania they would be in a position to leverage Letters of Administration.
In the 1800 Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania census (page 696)Susanna is enumerated in the age 45 and over category.  In the same household is 1 male under 10 years, 1 male of 10 and under 16 years, and 2 females of 10 and under 16 years.  The males are Daniel and Dorsey since George is enumerated as head of his own household.  The girls are likely Priscilla and Agnes under the assumption the children are names oldest to youngest in Thomas' estate listing.  In addition to these enumnerations there is 1 in the column "all other free persons except Indians not taxed" and 2 slaves.  The one "other free person" is most likely Gabriel Blackeney, the inmate spoken of below.  It is interesting that Susanna is of Quaker upbringing yet she has 2 slaves in the census.

The federal census of 1800 does not list the number of inhabitants age 21 and up.  They reported in categories of under 10, 10 and under 16, 16 and under 26, 26 and under 45, and 45 and over.  A Septenial (to be taken every 7 years) Census had been instituted to clearly identify taxable inhabitants and also to use that data for legislative apportionment.  The commissioners and assessors were told to count all slaves and list their ages and sexes.  For the purpose of taxation it is likely only those slaves of an age capable of adult labor, usually 16 and above, were counted.  Thus Susanna's slave household likely consisted of James, Bell, Cesar and Nell.
Notice of Susanna's death was reported in the February 9, 1824 issue of the Washington Reporter newspaper of Washington, Washington County, Pennsylvania, "DIED - On Thursday morning last, at an advanced age, mrs. SUSANNAH CATON, of of (sic) Amwell township.", fixing her death date as February 5.  Susanna's will, written January 10, 1823, was entered into probate March 27, 1824 (Washington County, Pennsylvania Will Book 4, pp 165-166).  At the time of Thomas' estate seven children were identified - George, Milce m Thomas Praul, Susannah, Daniel, Priscilla, Dorsey, Agnes - per his narrative above.  Interestingly she writes "...I give and devise to my old friend & trusty inmate Gabriel Blackeney all my real and personal estate of whatever kind or nature soever during his natural life ... meaning thereby to give him the said Blackeney a complete life estate in my real property in Washington County or else where and an absolute right in and to all my personal property of whatever kind or nature it may be..."  She then goes ahead to state "...that after the death of the said Gabriel Blackeney I will and devise to my sons George Caton & Dorsey Caton and to my daughters Milcah Prawl Susanna Lackey and Anna Conklen all my real aforesaid to be equally divided between them..."  Regarding the children missing from this list her will states "...I give and demise (sic) to my grand daughter Lucy Vankirke aforesaid daughter of my deceased child Priscilla Vankirk..."  From "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania" by Boyd Crumrine; L. H. Everts & Co.; Philadelphia; 1882, page 660, "...Daniel died a bachelor..."  Evidently Daniel also predeceased Susanna.

Children of Thomas Caton/Kitten/Kitton and Susanna Plummer are (work in progress):

314 i. George Caton, born Abt. 1774 in Westmoreland (now Washington) County, Pennsylvania; died Abt. 1869 in White Eyes Township, Coshocton County, Ohio; married Jemima ? probably Abt. 1793 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.
ii. Milcah Caton, born October 28, 1776 in Westmoreland (now Washington) County, Pennsylvania; died September 2, 1846 in Henryville, Clark County, Indiana; married Thomas Prall Abt. 1794 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania; born Abt. 1775 in Amwell Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey; died December 11, 1823 in eastern Finley Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania.
We are first aware of Milcah because of Thomas' estate records from his narrative above.  There she is listed as "Milce m Thomas Praul".  In Susanna's will she bequeaths her real property to be equally divided between her children, included among them being Milcah Prawl.  In various places she is shown as Milcah, Milcy, Milca, Milchy, Michel, etc.  Milcah, while unusual, is a name with biblical history in its favor.  A reference to Milcah appears in Numbers 26, 27, and 36 and Joshua 17 as daughter of Zelophehad.  Other instances of Milcah, appearing in Genesis 11, 22, and 24, was of a woman of ancient Mesopotamia, daughter of Haran.  This Milcah married Nahor, a brother of Abraham, and together they had 8 children.  Through her son Bethuel she was a direct ancestor of Jacob, who was ancestor of the tribes of Israel.  Given Susanna's Quaker upbringing, it is assumed Milcah is the intended and correct spelling for this daughter.
Milcah's birth and death dates are from her tombstone in Mount Zion Cemetery, Henryville, Clark County, Indiana.  Her name is given on the stone as Michel, but is further defined by the inscription "Wife of Thos. Prall".  There is an additional stone that is engraved "Erected 1972" and appears to be placed next to the original.  This was evidently erected by descendants who did not want the story of Milcah to disappear with the eventual demise of an aged stone.  It adds to the birth and dates taken from the original with the inscription "69 YRS. 10 MS. 4D."
Thomas' birth date on the other hand is an estimate based on census information, since no burial location/tombstone has been found.  I was not able to locate a 1790 census for Thomas, which would be likely if he were not yet head of household.  However, I was also not able to locate a 1790 census entry for father George.  I was able to locate George Prall in the 1798 tax list on a 190 acre tract in Amwell Township.  The 1800 census (Amwell Township, page 700) gives Thomas' age as 16 through 25 (August 5, 1774 through August 4, 1784) while the 1820 census (Finley Township, page 252) gives his age as 45 and over (August 4, 1775 and before).  Those two census entries suggest a birth date circa 1775.  His death notice appeared in the December 22, 1823 issue of The Reporter newspaper and reads as follows, "DIED -- On Thursday morning, the 11th instant, THOMAS PRAUL, of Finley township, Washington county.  The deceased had for some time been subject to mental derangement."  Thomas and Milcah owned land in the eastern part of Finley Township, that part which would in fact become East Finley Township on December 24, 1828.  Thomas left no will, but his estate record can be found in Washington County probate File P, No. 30, Year 1830.
The 1800 census shows 2 sons under 10 and 1 daughter under 10.  The 1810 census (Amwell Township, page 634 and second household from Susanah Caton) shows the 2 sons as being in the 10 through 15 age group, while the daughter is no longer in the household.  This would suggest she was either old enough to have married or she was deceased.  Later information will suggest she was married rather than deceased.  Given the death timeframe for Thomas Caton of early February 1795 I would suggest they married circa late 1794 or very early 1795.  This is because the listing of the children related to Thomas' estate shows Milcah as married.  Thus the daughter was likely born circa 1795-6 and the two sons likely 1796 through 1800.  Richard Dwight Prall has identified these children as Susan, John and Gabriel, born November 27, 1799.
The 1810 census shows 2 new sons under 10 and 1 new daughter under 10.  The 1820 census identifies 1 of these sons as age 16 through 18 (August 8, 1801 through August 7, 1804) and the other as 10 through 15 (August 8, 1804 through August 7 1810), while the daughter is shown as 16 through 25 (August 5, 1800 through August 7, 1804).  Richard Dwight Prall has identified these children as Daniel, born 1802, and Asa, born October 5, 1806.  He does not have anything regarding this daughter under age 10.  Either that daughter passed away in childhood or this enumeration was for Susan and placed in the wrong agre grouping in error.
The 1820 census shows 2 new sons under 10, and one new daughter under 10.  The 1830 census for Milcah Moore (East Finley Township, page 324) shows this daughter at home yet and aged 15 through 19 (June 2, 1809 through June 1, 1814).  These last children have been identified by Richard Dwight Prall as Cornelius Nathan, born February 23, 1811, Premelia, born June 8, 1814, and Thomas Francis, born May 1, 1817.  The references regarding Richard Dwight Prall come from the book he authored "The Prall Family - 1st Edition"; self-published; Albuquerque, NM; 1990.  Among many references he points to a specific deed within the probate records that identifies Thomas and Milcha's children as Susan intermarried to John Collins, John, Gabriell Prall and wife Mary, Daniel Prall and wife Harriet, Asa Prall and wife Asenath, Cornelius, Pamelia, and Thomas.
The other thing the deed in the last paragraph identified was Milcah's new husband, Patrick Moore.  Milcah married Patrick Moore, a widower, on September 30, 1826.  That marriage did not last very long as the 1830 census shows "Milcha Moore" as head of household in East Finley Township, Washington County, page 324.  Milcah has one daughter at home who is in the 15 through 19 age bracket - Permelia.  This would indicate that either Patrick died or they divorced.  Mr. Prall also writes of a family tradition that Milcah married a third time a Mr. Taylor and that at one time, Milcah left Taylor and rode horse back from Pennsylvania to Indiana to follow her children to Clark County and once there divided her time among the homes of her children.
iii. Susanna Caton, born Abt. 1781 in Westmoreland (now Washington) County, Pennsylvania; died Aft. September 16, 1830 in likely Ross County, Ohio; married John Lackey Abt. 1797 in likely Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania; born Abt. 1772 in likely Westmoreland (now Washington) County, Pennsylvania; died April 20, 1824 in Greencastle, Fairfield County, Ohio
Susanna's estimated birth year is derived from the available census records of 1800, 1820 and 1830.  I was unable to locate them in the 1810 census.  It is possible they were already in Ross County, Ohio in 1810, or John Lackey was already there and Susanna and the family were "bunking" with relatives (the Ohio 1810 census was lost for all counties except Washington).  The 1800 Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania census, page 698, set the latest date for her birth as August 4, 1784.  The 1830 Union Township, Ross County, Ohio census, page 225, set the earliest date for her birth as June 2, 1780.  I settled on circa 1781 given these dates and the relative positioning of Susanna along with her siblings.
Susanna first is made known because of the estate records for father Thomas in 1795 (see Thomas' narrative above).  In that record she is identified simply as Susanna while Milcah is identified as married to "Thomas Praul".  Mother Susanna's will identifies her as Susanna Lackey.  Much of the information regarding the Lackey family comes from "One Hundred One Family Outlines Washington County, Pennsylvania" by Raymond Martin Bell; self-published; Coralville, IA; 1997, which in turn was taken from "Keyhole" magazines, a publication of The Genealogical Society of Southwestern Pennsylvania of Washington, Pennsylvania.  No further source information was given.
John Lackey is the son of Thomas Lackey and wife Jane.  Thomas was born circa 1745 and came to the area that would be Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania circa 1770.  Jane was born circa 1750.  Son John was born circa 1772, likely in this same area of Pennsylvania.  John appears as a freeman in Amwell Township in 1794 and 1796.  The "Pennsylvania Archives", Series 6, Volume IV, Military Abstracts 1790-1817, page 537 identifies that on Wednesday, March 30, 1796 a return was made by the Brigade Inspector of the First Washington Brigade on the election of certain militia officers and approved by the Governor's signature.  Page 540 shows the Fifth Regiment, 1st Light Infantry Company with John Lackey as Ensign.  He married Susanna Caton circa 1797.
John Lackey and his young famiy appear in the 1800 Amwell Township census (as Lacky), page 698, as does the Thomas Lackey (Lacky) family.  Thomas Lackey's family appears in the 1810 Amwell Township census, page 633, but John's family is nowhere to be found (see the first paragraph above).  According to Bell's book John and family moved to Ross County, Ohio in 1811.  It may be that they actually moved a couple of years before that, and John was in Ohio already in 1810.  One of their children, Sanford, is rather consistent in the 1850-1880 census records as being born circa 1809 in Ohio.  Bell also shows that after Jane Lackey died circa 1812 in Washington County, Pennsylvania then Thomas joined his son's family in Ross County circa 1816-17, and died there in October 1823.  Bell reports that John died in Greencastle, Fairfield County, Ohio April 20, 1824 enroute home to Union Township, Ross County, Ohio from Washington County, Pennsylvania.
In "History of Franklin & Pickaway Counties, Ohio with Illustrations & Biographical Sketches of Some of the Prominent Men & Pioneers"; Williams Bros.; 1880 a short biographical notice states "JOHN LACKEY, who was a captain in the war of the Revolution, came to Ross county, where both himself and wife died. The children were: Reason, Thomas, Ira (deceased), Hannah (Mrs. Grove), Richard, Sanford, Anna (Mrs. J. HENLEY), Maria (Mrs. John RITCHEY), and Susan (Mrs. Kennell)."  It seems rather unlikely that John could have served as a captain in the Revolutionary War when he was only born in 1772.  He was a member of the Washington County militia as stated above.  He also served a short stint in the Ohio militia during the War of 1812.  From the "Roster of Ohio Soldiers in the War of 1812" by Adjutant General of Ohio; Heritage Books, Inc.; Westminster, MD; 1995, John Lackey served as private in the 2nd Regiment from Ross County from July 28, 1813 until August 13, 1813 under Captain John Clark and Lietentant Amel Holloway.  The Ohio militia had been extensively misused by General Harrison prior to this timeframe.  Then in the summer of 1813, the British again laid seige to Fort Meigs and attacked Fort Stephenson.  General Harrison requested help and the governor called up two divisions of Ohio militia.  In spite of bad feelings over the shabby treatment earlier that year, nearly 8,000 militia responded.  However, by the time all the men were assembled the crises had passed and in August General Harrison ordered all Ohio militia discharged.
When John died Susannah was left with 5 or 6 children at home, with two under 4 years of age.  She appears in the 1830 Union Township, Ross County, Ohio census, page 225 as Susannah Lacky, head of household.  Several researchers have Susanna as marrying second Enoch Vankirk.  Actually it was her niece, also named Susanna, who was daughter of George Caton who married Enoch.  This Susanna married second John G. Schmidt on September 16, 1830 in Ross County.  I have not found her after that point.  Bell's book identifies the same children as the History of Franklin & Pickaway Counties above with the addition of birth years of 1798 for Reason, 1800 for Thomas and 1805 for Richard.  The children scattered to Indiana (Pulaski, Hamilton, Wayne and Vermillion), Illinois (Brown, Piatt and Vermilion) and Marshall County, Iowa.
iv. Son Caton, born likely Bet. 1778 and 1790 in Westmoreland (now Washington) County, Pennsylvania; died bef February 1795 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania.
This son is identified in the 1790 census as one of the 3 males under age 16, the other two being George and Daniel.  When the list of children is put together regarding Thomas' estate this son is not listed.  There is also certainly the possibility there was an enumeration error in the 1790 census.
v. Daniel Caton, born Bet. August 5, 1784 - December 1786 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania; died Bef. January 10, 1823 in likely Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania.
Not much is known of Daniel.  He appears in the Thomas Caton estate listing of children, but does not appear in Susanna's will which was written January 10, 1823.  The 1790 census does not do much to narrow his birth year except to suggest he was born after August 2, 1773.  The 1800 census shows him to be 10 - 15 years of age (between August 5, 1784 and August 5, 1790).  From "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania" by Boyd Crumrine; L. H. Everts & Co.; Philadelphia; 1882, page 660, Daniel was one of three sons of Thomas Kitten and "died a bachelor".  That wording suggests he lived into adulthood.  In the December 1807 term of Washington County Common Pleas Court Book 1, page 217 a petition was submitted for partition of the property left by the demise of Thomas Kitten.  That document identifies Dorsey and Ann Caton as minors, whereby the others would then be of their majority.  This would suggest he was born before December 1787, hence the birth range I have given.  This also shows him to be alive in December of 1807.
vi. Priscilla Caton, born Bet. 1785 - 1790 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania; died Bef. December 1807; married Gideon Vankirk Abt. 1803 in Washington County, Pennsylvania; born April 19, 1775 in New Jersey; died January 2, 1805 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.
Priscilla is identified among Thomas's children as part of his estate documents.  She was not identified there as married.  In Susanna's will of January 10, 1823 she is identified with a married name of Vankirk, but deceased, and her daughter Lucy is included as an heir.  This will item is somewhat misleading and does not tell the entire story.  In the December 1807 term of Washington County Common Pleas Court Book 1, page 217 a petition was submitted for partition of the property left by the demise of Thomas Kitten.  That document identifies Priscilla as "Priscilla Caton who intermarried with Gideon Van Kirk by whom she had issue one daughter and which Priscilla upon the death of the said Gideon intermarried with Abraham Barnhart and is since dead leaving one son..."  Priscilla's birth date range is from the 1800 census while her death date limit is set by the court document.  Priscilla was named as administratrix of Gideon's estate (Probate File V No. 11 1808).  Gideon's dates come from Vankirk researchers.  Abraham Barnhart was a widower with 4 sons identified in the 1800 census (Somerset Township, Washington County, page 906).
vii. Agnes Ann Caton, born Bet. August 1790 - February 1795 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania; died after January 10, 1823
This child is known first from the children listing from Thomas' estate records, where she is listed as Agnes.  In the December term 1807 court document and in her mother's January 10, 1823 will she is referred to as Ann.  The 1790 census (census day August 2, 1790) shows the household with 4 females - Susanna (mother), Milcah, Susanna (daughter), and Priscilla.  Thus she was born sometime after that census date but before her father died (or possibly within a few months of his death).  Mother Susanna's will, dated January 10, 1823, identifies her as an heir (thus likely placing her as alive at that time) and identifies her married name as Conklen.  Who she married and when/where she died is not known at this time.  There is a Mathew Conklin in the 1820 Ross County, Ohio census, page 284 in the next household to the John and Susanna Caton Lackey family.  Is that a coincidence?  This family shows the male and female heads of household in the 26-45 age group.  This could work if the individuals are on the lower end of that age grouping.  Could they have been married circa 1810 and traveled with John and Susanna's family to Ross County.  The Ross County marriages shows a Matthew Conklin marrying a Mary Richardson on November 4, 1819.  The 1820 census shows older children in the household already so one or both of them brought children to the marriage.  Could Matthew have been married to Agnes Ann and then she died before November 1819?  Mother Susanna Caton thought she was still alive when writing her will.  It could be that Matthew is a relative of the Conklin who married Agnes Ann and they moved to Ohio along with John Lackey's family as friends, and of course there might be no relationship at all.  I could find nothing more on Matthew to know whether this is a possibility or if I am way off base.
viii. Dorsey Caton, born likely Bet. Aug 5, 1790 - August 5, 1794 in Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania; died Bet. January 10, 1823 and 1830 in likely Amwell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania; married Nancy Ann Gardner Abt. 1809 in Washington County, Pennsylvania; born probably Bef. August 5, 1794, died Bef. 1830 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.
Dorsey appears in both the list of children in Thomas' estate records and in Susanna's will.  He does not appear in the 1790 census, so he was born between 1790 and 1795.  The 1800 census shows he was under age 10, which supports the previous timeframe.  The 1810 census for Susanna shows a male age 45 and over, likely the Gabriel Blackeney mentioned in her will.  It also shows a male and a female in the 16 through 25 age group and a female under 10.  It would seem likely this is Dorsey, his wife, and their first child.  This suggests Dorsey and his wife were born prior to August 5, 1794, that they were married prior to 1810 and their first child was born circa 1810 or before.
Dorsey married Nancy Gardner in Washington County as evidenced by the will of George Gardner in Washington County Will Book 6, page 117 which states, " .... 4th To my grand children (being the children of my daughter Nancy who intermarried with Dorsey Caton) I give and bequeath the sum of two hundred dollars, fifty dollars of this sum I direct to be paid to Jackson Caton, fifty dollars to Priscilla Caton (who intermarried with Daniel Horn) Fifty dollars to Elizabeth Caton (who intermarried with Elder Hawkins) and the remaining fifty dollars to be equally divided among the other children of my said daughter Nancy..."  Dorsey and Nancy had their difficulties as evidenced by a couple of inserts in the Washington Reporter newspaper.  In the January 19, 1818 issue "Take Notice.  Whereas my wife Nancy Caton, has behaved in a very unbecoming manner, with a certain Joseph Huston, and left my house in company with him, without any cause or provocation.  I therefore forwarn all persons from trusting her on my account, as I am determined to pay no debts of her contracting from this date. /s/ Dorsey Caton. January 13, 1818."
In the same January 19, 1818 issue, "To the Public.  In this day's 'Reporter', I will be published by my husband, Dorsey Caton, as leaving his house without any cause or provocation, in company with a certain Jos. Huston.  The facts are these, I was obliged to leave his house on Monday night last, and seek shelter under my father's roof, on account of the cruel and inhuman manner in which he beat and abused me.  Mr. Huston, seeing me beat, abused and turned out in the cold, pitied me, and took me to my father's house, where I could not have reached without assistance.  No one (Dorsey, excepted) could be so hardened as to not assist me.  I have been treated more like a dog, than a wife.  I have been beat until I was black and blue, from head to foot, and even my life threatened.  This is the fourth time that I have been obliged to leave him.  These are facts which cannot be denied by him or his drunken comrades.  /s/ Nancy Caton (her mark)."
Several researchers have Nancy dying in Ohio and then Dorsey remarrying to a Jane Finley on March 4, 1821 in Muskingum County, Ohio.  After the above notices published in the newspaper I find it hard to think they have reconciled to such an extent that Nancy would move to Ohio, and away from her father's support and protection, with a husband whom she had to leave four times and who had beaten her black and blue from head to foot.  This Jane, as Jane Caton, then remarries to a Joel Hurley on August 24, 1826 in Muskingum County.  This latter date is often given as the date before which Dorsey died in Ohio.  Joel and Jane show up in the 1850 Sherburn Township, Will County, Illinois census with Jane's son John Caton, age 28 and born in Ohio.  Jane's husband Dorsey could be the son of Thomas and Susanna, and who was in Muskingum County.  Then again, it could be a son of Theophilus Caton, brother of Thomas.  By 1807 Theophilus' family had moved from Washington County, Pennsylvania to Muskingum County, Ohio, and is found there in the 1820 census (see Theophilus Caton narrative in generation 7).  Dorsey, who married Jane Finley, could be from that family and Thomas' son Dorsey, and therefore Nancy, could have stayed and died in Washington County, Pennsylvania,  That would be consistent with Boyd Crumine in "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania"; L. H. Everts & Co.; Philadelphia; 1882, page 660 where it is stated; "...Daniel died a bachelor, and Dorsey, who married, lived and died upon the Kitten homestead."  This latter point also seems consistent with Dorsey and Nancy's daughter Priscilla, born November 30, 1810 in Washington County, marrying Daniel Horn, Jr. circa 1830 in Washingotn County, Pennsylvania.  The 1830 Amwell Township, Washington County census, page 135, show their other children with Anne Caton as head of household (see will information above for some of the children's names).
