Land petition - John Bailey

John Bailey b.1796 birth place in question, could be in or close to Hardy County, VA (as of 1863 WV).John's ^Bounty Land Warrant^ application dated Nov.6,1850 lists his service in thewar of 1812. John volunteered for the Virginia Militia at Moorefield, Hardy County, Virginia, the first day of August 1813. He is identified as a Private designated as a "mounted rifleman." His commanding officer was Captain John Cunningham. A muster roll of Captain John Cunningham's Cavalry Company lists county of origin as Hardy County, VA. John Bailey migrated to Pickaway County, Ohio, his death date is April 30, 1862 while residing in Pickaway County, Ohio. It was mentioned in the obituary of Jane (Stufflebeam) Bailey reported in the Circleville Democrat and Watchman newspaper, Circleville, Ohio, that John Bailey had preceded her in death some years ago, from injuries receivd while a soldier in the War of 1812. Several of their children moved to Moultrie County. source: Rodney Livings

Hardy County, WV - Muster Roll of Captain John Cunningham's Cavalry Company Hardy County, VA Third Regiment--1814

Circleville Democrat and Watchman Circleville, Ohio May 6, 1887 Mrs. Jane Bailey:
Mrs Jane Bailey died at her home at Five Points, Pickaway County, April 28th, 1887, aged 91 years and 9 months. Her maiden name was Stufflebeam, and she was born on the borders of Lake Erie, near Buffalo, New York, on the 28th of July 1795. She was married to John Bailey, at or near Circleville, on the 20th day of February, 1817. Their union was blessed with 11 children eight of whom are living. Her husband died some years ago from injuries recieved while a soldier in the War of 1812, and from that time she received a widow's pension. She was probably the last surviving witness of the great naval battle known in history as Perry's victory on Lake Erie, her future husband being a participant in the conflict....Her life has been a long and useful one, and sadly will the family miss Grandma, and she will be missed by all who knew her, as they looked on her as one who linked the last century with the present and lived to see generations pass away.

Clan MacFarlane Homepage

The MacFarlane Lands are located in the West Highlands at the heads of Loch Long and Loch Lomond. For about five centuries the MacFarlane Chiefs presided over this area. Clan MacFarlane did not originate in the Highlands as you might think however. Like a number of other clans, they integrated into the great Scottish Highlands by a long residence among the mountains and the lochs, and by intermarriage with native families of Celtic descent. The name, Parlan, has been linked to Partholon, " Spirit of the Sea Waves", in Irish myths and legend. More usually, it is considered the Gaelic equivalent of Bartholomew. Gaelic grammar requires changes within a word to indicate possession. A "P" is softened to a "Ph", and an "i" is added to the last syllable. In this way, " son of Parlan" becomes Mac (son) Pharlain (of Parlan). For much of their history, the Macfarlanes were a very turbulent lot. Their rallying cry, "Loch Sloy", signalled many a night raid to "collect" cattle from their richer neighbors to the south and east. Their march-piobaireachd "Thogail nam Bo theid sinn" (To Lift the Cows We Shall Go) gives ample notice of intent. They were so competent that the full moon was known as "Macfarlanes' Lantern." The clan lands at Arrochar were sold off for debt after Walter's death in 1767, and the direct male line of the chiefs failed in 1886.

Sharp


THE SHARP NAME
The earliest record of the Sharp name is in the famous Hundred Rolls. It gives evidence of early forms of the name and shows usage as early as 1273. The earliest record is for Alexander Scharp of County Buckinghamshire in 1273. The name shows up in as many as seven different spellings, including: Scharp, Scharpe, and Scharppe. It is found in several counties and shires of England, including Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, and Rutlandshire. One source claims the "Sharp/Sharpe" family name originated in Peebles, located in the Scottish English Border Ridings. The records show the name to be among the landed gentry as well as in the lower feudal class. It is thought the name might be of Anglo-Saxon origin or Strathclyde Briton origin. It is thought that Sharp could have been a nickname for a rude person as in one with a 'sharp tongue'. More likely, it was given to a smart person as in one with a 'sharp mind'. The word 'sharp' comes from the Middle English s(c)harp and the old English scearp.
EARLY SHARP HISTORY
The original Sharp family was from Saxony, eventually migrating to Little Horton (now Bradford) England in the 13th century. The family in Little Horton was split by the War of the Roses in 1470 with one branch going north to Scotland, one south to Bristol and the third remaining in Yorkshire. The Scots became Presbyterian, our clan became Quaker and those remaining became Anglican. James Sharp of the Scotish clan, was Archbishop of St. Andrews and prominent in the English Civil War. Another Archbishop, John of York, has a statue in the York Minster, and his family of Little Horton was very prominent as mathematicians and astronomers. There are wills and legal records on the Tetbury clan, going back to about 1500. The most prominent of this group was Anthony, who moved to Ireland and became a wealthy merchant. Thomas, who came to New Jersey, was his nephew and agent there. His son, Isaac, came to New Jersey in 1702 or 1703 and left a large family and was a member of the Assembly from Salem Co. Isaac later returned to live on Anthony's estate (Roundwood) near Dublin.
There are four major Sharp families in new Jersey at the end of the 17th century. Our John of Evesham, William of Woodbridge, Thomas Sharp of Ireland who arrived in Salem, NJ Nov 18, 1681,and John Sharp who migrated to Perth Amboy, NJ in 1684. It may be possible that all were descended from the Little Horton Sharps.
Our Sharps were staunch Quakers. George Fox, the Quaker leader, died in 1691, and by that time the Society of Friends numbered 40,000 in England. The English, staunch supporters of the Church of England, considered the Quakers as "dissenters" and threw many of them in prison. This persecution prompted them to seek settlement in America as early as 1656. George Fox himself came to America and in 1672, crossed New Jersey with Indian guides. His coming spurred additional Quaker settlement in America and by 1700, they controlled New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. The Sharps emigrated in the wave of Quaker departures from England in the late 1600's, to escape the persecution applied to the Quakers. John, Hugh and William (aged 20, 14 and 12) came to America in 1682 landing in what is now Burlington, NJ. Parts of the bible of John Sharp survive today and several historical accounts repeat the writings in this bible: "...of the Flower in Northamptonshire" [from Flower, Northamptonshire, England], "came over Sea on the ship 'Samuel'," arriving in "West Jersey about the 4th or 5th Day of September 1682." John settled 1250 acres of land in Evesham Twp., which were located next to Thomas Ballinger. John was frequently mentioned in public business affairs. John married three times. He married Elizabeth Paine in Burlington, Burlington Co, NJ, 17 Jun 1688. John SHARP married Elizabeth PAINE under the care of the Burlington Quaker Monthly Meeting (MM), Burlington County, New Jersey. Elizabeth was the daughter of John Paine, one of the signers of West Jersey's constitution, "The Concessions and Agreements of West Jersey of America", signed in London in 1676. By the time of the first U.S. census, there was over 200 Sharp households. In 1974 the name Sharp was the 343rd most commonly occurring surname in the nation with approximately 76,500 adult Americans named Sharp.

"..we shall trace our line of ancestry to William Sharp as the father of the three children—John, William and Hugh Sharp —upon the tradition, as the progenitors of the Sharp family, who claim an English ancestry. We present to our readers the accompanying engraving, which is a fac simile of the record in John Sharp's Bible, the eldest son, in its present mutilated condition, with the following remarks. It is evident from the date of the publication of the Bible, in 1709, in London, by Charles Bill and the executors of Thomas Newcomb, which was some time after John Sharp came to this country, conclusively shows that the record was entered in the Bible from notes previously made elsewhere, and also accounts for the irregularity of some of the entries in the regular order of time. The Bible, it appears from the entries, came into the possession of William Sharp, the eldest son of John Sharp, upon his death; and there is a space of time, from when it passed out-of the possession of the family of William Sharp, until it came into the possession of the family of Francis Haines (the grandfather of its present owner), during which its possession and whereabouts cannot be accounted for to a certainty. There are some relics to be found in the families of the descendants of William Sharp, which he brought with him, which are very quaint, and good specimens of Colonial days. Among them may be mentioned an eight-day clock, which is wound up without a key, and still marks the downward course of time accurately ; a case of drawers, and a two-gallon bottle." http://books.google.com/books?id=5KpRAAAAMAAJ
