John C. CONEY

May 1848 - ____

ID Number: I75651

  • OCCUPATION: likely bi-racial
  • RESIDENCE: Pike Co. MS
  • BIRTH: May 1848, prob. Pike Co. Mississippi
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2885]
Father: (RESEARCH QUERY) CONEY


Family 1 :
  1.  Ulysses S. CONEY Sr.

Notes


"Ulysses Coneys' father was John C. Coney, Sr (born abt. 1849). John Coney, Sr. had two or more families. One with Barbara Dillon in which there were six children. Later with Jane Hornsby (Jesse Magee first husband) in which there were three children. As per his death certificate he was last married to a woman named Mary. These families lived separate but in close proximity to each other. Most have passed away and there isn't much history passed down to my generation.


Jane Hornsby Magee Coney was first married to Jesse Magee. Jesse's parents were: Jacob Magee and Chaney. I found them in the 1870 Pike Co, MS census. Jacob is 38 and Chaney is 30. Their children are Martha who is 13, Jesse 14, Sam 11, Abram 7, Eliza 4, Henry 2 and Allen 8 months."


"I've been able to trace our history back to my great-grandfather John C Coney who was probably bi-racial. He is most probably a product of miscegenation . He is connected to George Coney in the 1870 census. Definite proof from John's death certificate shows that Patsy (Pattie) was John's natural mother. She was a housekeeper (slave) in a white Coney's home in that area.. Not many records exists but I know that George and Patsy were slaves. John who is listed as their son, is 21 years old, along with Silas who is listed as 19 born May 1850, sisters Clara (Chloe) and Ginny, brothers Jesse and Leander born about 1877.


When the Civil War ended in 1865 John was about 17 years old. Who WAS his father? John Coney was described as a light skinned African-American man by his grandchildren. He was remembered riding a white horse overseeing the fields. I was also told that John C. Coney as a young man was the buggy driver for his "White" father. John Coney married Barbara Dillon. They had several children:


Jacob, Elizabeth, Delia, William, Early, James, Lennie, John Coney, Jr. Myrtis Matthews, and my grandfather Ulysses Coney, Sr.


I invite any information that YOU would like to share with me regarding my roots. I welcome any information from and about the Coney's in the Pike County, MS area.


Researching these surnames: Coney, Conerly, Hughes, Dillon, Webber,Burris, Simmons, Marshall, Magee, McGhee, Tate and more."

Notes


"After Capt. Roper's death, Katherine married another neighbor, Lt Thomas Sprigg, son of Thomas Sprigg and Katherine Griffin, on 3 March 1650/51.


They were both living in Northampton Co., Va. at the time. Thomas Sprigg was born in 1630 in Kettering, Northamptonshire, England, and died in 1704 at Resurrection Manor, Calvert, Prince George's Co., Md. His will was probated 29 Dec 1704. After Katherine died, he married Eleanor Nuthall in 1668.


Shortly after Katherine's marriage to Thomas Sprigg, they moved to the new colony of Maryland, where her brother-in-law, William Stone, had gone as governor. Thomas Sprigg's land certificate in Maryland shows that he transported himself, his wife Katherine, Verlinda Roper, Nathaniel Sprigg, and several others. Verlinda Roper was Thomas's young stepdaughter; Nathaniel may have been an infant son -- no other record of him has been found. Sarah Sprigg is listed by some writers as a daughter of Katherine Sprigg and by some as a daughter of Thomas Sprigg' s second wife.


Thomas Sprigg, Jr. is shown as the son of Katherine Sprigg in Adventurers of Purse and Person, pp.190, 192. His birthdate is uncertain, but was probably about 1665. One possibility is that his mother died at or soon after his birth, and he was brought up by his stepmother, Eleanor Nuthall Sprigg.


In 1670, Thomas Sprigg executed a deed of gift which identified Sarah as his oldest daughter. Sarah was already married and even had a married daughter, Sarah Pearce Beall, who was also mentioned in the deed. When we consider ages and dates, it seems likely that Sarah was from her father's marriage to Katherine Graves Roper. (See Md. Hist. Mag., VIII:75.)


In Maryland, Katherine and her family settled first in Kent Co., and then across the bay in Calvert Co.
Children:
Nathaniel Sprigg, b.c. Dec. 1650 (by Jan. 1658) (Northampton Co., Va.), died young.
Sarah Sprigg, b.c. 1657, m(l) John Pierce, m(2) ------ Combs, d.c. 1736.
Thomas Sprigg, b.c. 1665, m. Margaret Mariarte, c. 1690, d.c. 1738.

Maryland Archives - INTRODUCTION
. . . . One's sympathy is generally with those who harbored, or "entertained", a runaway servant, as this was usually done from kindness of heart and and the knowledge that runaways generally came from the homes of harsh masters. When Edmund Lindsey sued Thomas Sprigg, one of the justices of Calvert County, for unlawfully harboring, or "entertaining", the former's servant, Robert Leeds, both parties to the suit agreed to refer the matter to Mr. Thomas Notley and Dr. John Peerce for arbitration, with the understanding that if they found against Sprigg he would pass his note for 5000 pounds of tobacco to Lindsey (p. 374). The decision of the arbitrators is not reported.


9 May 1704 - 29 Dec 1704 Will of Thomas SPRIGG, Sr., Prince George's Co., MD. To son Thomas, ex., plantation and land of "Northamton" and "Kellering," which have not been disposed of; also 1/3 of patent 500 A. in manor of "Colington." To dau. Martha PRATHER and hrs., 1/3 of residue of 500 A. lying near Jonathan PRATHER'S. To dau. Oliver NUTTHALL, residue of afsd. patent lying near Jonathan PRATHER'S. To Thomas STOCKETT, grandson Thomas STOCKETT, Oliver STOCKETT, and each of sd. Thos. STOCKETT'S child., to daus. Elizabeth WADE and her child., Ann GITTENS and her child., Oliver NUTTHALL and her child., and Martha PRATER and her child., personalty. To daus. afsd., residue of estate; division to be made by Sam'l MAGRUDER, Sr., Edward WILLETT and John SMITH at Mattapany. In event of death of son Thomas, sons-in-law -- WADE, Phillip GITTENS and Thomas PRATER to assume executorship.
Test: Thomas LUCAS, Sr., Thomas LUCAS, Jr., Dorothy LUCAS. (3. 443. Maryland Calendar of Wills: Volume 3, p. 48)


This is said to have been Thomas SPRIGG I who apparently(?) made earlier bequests to children not named in this will. His son-in-law WADE may have been Robert who died in 1713:


Father: Thomas SPRIGGS b. 1604 in Banbury, Northamptonshire, England + Death: Before 14 Jan 1678/1679 in London, London, England
Mother: Katherine Ann GRIFFIN b. Before 22 Oct 1610 in Kethering, Northants, England
