First Generation  Next





1. Clara Clark Leggitt,1,2 daughter of Oscar Jack Leggitt and Margaret Inez Hussey, was born on 11 Jul 1916 in Berlin Twp, Roger Mills, Oklahoma.1

General Notes: Source: Leggitt family records.

Clara was born while her parents were living on the Pittsburg Ranch north of Berlin. When she was three the family moved to a small two room house near Edenview where she later started school. When Clara was in the third grade her parents purchased some land from the Pittsburg Land Company seven miles northwest of Berlin. They built a big comfortable six room house there where Clara grew up.

About a year after her son Roy was born in 1933, Clara and he went to live with the Samual and Bonnie Purdy family in Carter, OK. Clara assisted Bonnie in the homemaking chores and did the family book keeping. She finished high school while at Carter in 1936. By the summer of 1937 the dust bowl made it impossible to continue making a living in Oklahoma and the family moved to California in a manner similar to John Steinbeck's novel, Grapes of Wrath.

They picked cotton and fruit the first years, but by 1940 the family had become quite successful. In 1941 Clara married Chester Leonard Smith who had a girl Roy's age and two nearly grown boys. She and Leonard had another family of a boy and two girls by 1946.

Leonard was primarily a carpenter and mechanic during the war (WWII) and post war years. However, he was seriously injured in an accident in the early 1950s and could no longer work doing physical labor. He and Clara later had a series of grocery stores and Clara entered the real estate business in the 1960s. She was quite successful and remained very active in that business until she fully retired in 1988.

Clara had a relationship with Roy Alonzo Young,1,3 son of Roy Barton Young and Dorcas Courtney,. Roy was born on 16 Mar 1911 in Piedmont, Canadian, Oklahoma,1,3 died on 20 Feb 1993 in Elk City, Beckham, Oklahoma1,3 at age 81, and was buried on 23 Feb 1993 in Berlin, Roger Mills, Oklahoma, , Berlin Cemetary.1,3

General Notes: Roy is enumerated with his parents, brother Archie, and sister Emma in the 1920 federal census for Lynn Township, Kingfisher County, Oklahoma. In the 1930 census for Mathewson Township, Canadian County, Oklahome, he is enuberated with his grandfather Alonzo P. Courtney.

Obituary of Roy A. Young (Note: He had been injured in an automobile accident in 1992 and never fully recovered. He died on Feb. 20th, 1993 of complications of that accident.)

Funeral services for Roy Young will be conducted Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Martin Funeral Chapel with Rev. A.L. Martin officiating. Burial will follow in the Berlin Cemetery under the direction of Martin Funeral Home.

Roy A. Young was born March 16, 1911 in Piedmont and died Saturday at the age of 81. He attended Edmond and Oklahoma City schools and at the age of 19 moved to his grandfather's farm near Berlin, where he also attended school for a while.

Roy was married to Julia French on Feb. 7, 1946, and they established their home in Erick. They operated the Erick Hospital from 1946-1970 when it was converted into a retirement center. In 1965, they established a nursing home in Erick.

In 1968, they operated the Sayre Retirement Center and continued that management until 1980. In 1977, the operation in Erick was sold. Roy operated several other enterprises but farm and ranching was his greatest love.

Survivors include his wife; Julia Young of the Sayre home; his children: Dorcas Lucile Maloney of Central Point, Oregon, Ervin Frank Young of Kingfisher, Bessie Meryle Johnston and Wanda Sue Jones both of Central Point; one sister: Emma Warkentin of Fort Worth; 12 grandchildren and 26 great grand grandchildren.

Roy was preceded in death by his parents, two sons, one brother and two sisters.

In actuality, Roy was quite a loverman. According to his daughters, he had a loving girl friend in the early 1930's who was killed in an autombile accident. He apparently lived at that time with his Courtney grand parents in Roger Mills County. He then related with Clara Leggitt whom he imprgnated with a son Roy Clarke Leggitt in about 1932 who was born April 6th, 1933. (See his private notes.) Also in 1932 he married Opal Reynolds with whom he later had five children, the oldest being Dorcus Lucile Young who was born July 1st, 1933. He and Opal divorced and in 1947 he married Julia French who is mentioned in the above obituary.

Clara married Chester Leonard Smith,1,2,6 son of Aaron Joseph Smith and Georgia Emma Simms, on 3 Dec 1941 in Reno, Washoe, Nevada. Chester was born on 17 Feb 1902 in Culman, Alabama, Alabama,1 died on 7 Mar 1981 in Hemet, Riverside, California1 at age 79, and was buried on 9 Mar 1981 in Grand Terrace, Riverside, California.1 The cause of his death was Automobile accident..1

General Notes: Source: Smith family records. See Clara C. Smith.

Clara dictated the following biography of Leonard Smith to me (RCL) on October 18, 1999:

Leonard was born in Culman, Alabama and was raised on a farm near Munday, Texas. As a young man he worked for some time near Lindale, Texas close to where his brother Aaron lived. He married Birdie Wilson when she was 14 and Paul was born there. Their second son Barney was born in Oklahoma. Part of the time he was a blacksmith and a mechanic. He said that he was a mechanic for Bonnie and Clyde at one time. Birdie died and Leonard and the boys returned to Lindale, Texas. The Wilsons took care of the boys while Leonard worked. He married a very large woman in Oklahoma and they soon divorced. He then married Vera Nips in Lindale when she was 14. Clara Mae was born there in 1933. He worked as a mechanic there and worked late many nights. Vera thought he was womanizing and divorced him.

He then went out to west Texas where his father farmed. He and his friend Leonard Brown (Dora's son) picked cotton there. When his father died in 1939 Leonard and his son, Paul traveled in a Model A Ford to Phoenix, Arizona. Clara Mae remained with her mother and Barney stayed with the Wilsons.

About 1940 Leonard and Paul moved to Hanford, California where Arzo Smith lived. He worked for an oil company and hurt his back when an oil drum fell on him. He then moved to Tulare, California where he rented a cabin in the roadside Young's Courts. The court was at the rear of the store named Twin Palms owned by the Samuel Purdy family which included Clara Leggitt and her young son Jay.

By this time Leonard also had Barney with him. Leonard was a professional gambler in Tulare. Clara played six-card pitch nightly at the Twin Palms Store. Leonard worked his way into the nightly game so he could meet Clara. He had seen Clara walking around the court and had told Paul "I'm going to marry that little bitch!"

One night Leonard had taken Clara, Jay, and Paul to the theater in Tulare. In the midst of the show Barney came running in saying the Twin Palms Store was on fire. By the time they got back, the store and all its contents were gone.

After the fire the Purdy family relocated to Kingsburg where they established another gas station, a grocery store, and a furniture store. Leonard had moved to Merced to work at Castle Army Air Base. He frequently stopped by the store to see Clara.

By correspondence they secretly arranged for Clara to catch a bus to Merced on December 3, 1941, after which they drove to Reno, Nevada where they married on December 4th.

In the spring of 1942 Clara and Leonard had moved to Las Vegas. Once settled there they arranged for Clara Mae to join them from Texas and Jay to join them from Kingsburg. By then Barney was working in Texas in a carnival. Paul was working at Whimpies Hamburger Joint in Las Vegas. Leonard's and Clara's son Chester Leonard Smith, Jr. was born there in 1942.

During the war Leonard worked as a carpenter. Mostly, Leonard worked at Army and Navy bases in southern California. In 1943 and 1944 he worked for a contractor rebuilding railroad section hand quarters along the railroad between Barstow and Needles, California. This entailed living at some very remote and desolate places in the desert, including Hector that was later the epicenter of the October 1999 7.0 earthquake. Clara Mae and Jay attended quite a few different schools that year.

The family was living in Rialto, California when Margaret Emma Smith was born in 1944.

By 1947 Leonard and his family had purchased an automobile repair garage just south of Modesto, California. Within a short time he sold the garage and property for a very good profit and relocated the family south about five miles to Ceres where he bought a house from the profits of the sale. Lenore Ailene was born there. Leonard had an auto repair and blacksmith garage on the Ceres property. In 1948 a fire destroyed the garage.

For a while Leonard worked as a mechanic for his nephew (Fannie's son-in-law Oscar Banks) who had a vast cotton field south of Bakersfield.

He moved the family to Ridgecrest, California for a few months and returned to Ceres in the summer of 1949. He still owned the house there. His niece Winnie Long Summerfield had been renting it.

The Korean Conflict began in 1950 and in April 1951 Leonard and Clara moved with the younger children to Fairfield, California where he worked as a carpenter at Travis Air Force Base. Clara Mae had married and Jay remained in Modesto to finish high school (renting a room from his cousin Winnie Summerfield.)

By 1952 Leonard and the remaining family moved to San Bernardino and later to Fontana where they remained for several years. He worked as a finish carpenter during the early part of this time. Later, while working at Kaiser Steel in Fontana he had an industrial accident which broke his neck and precluded him from any further strenuous physical labor. He and Clara bought and ran a grocery store in Fontana. During this time Clara's son Jay joined the US Air Force, their son Chet joined the US Navy and daughters Marge and Nora married and left home.

Clara began working part time as a real estate agent while living in Fontana. In the early 1970s she and Leonard moved to Crestline, just north of San Bernardino, California where Clara opened a real estate office and Leonard tinkered with a blacksmith and radiator shop next door.

By the late 1970s Leonard and Clara relocated to Lake Elsinore, California where Clara continued in real estate and Leonard tinkered with second-hand items for sale on their large lot.

In about 1980 Clara retired from real estate and she and Leonard moved to a beautiful hilltop lot in Sage, about ten miles south of Hemet, California to enjoy their retirement.

Just after turning 79 years of age, Leonard was killed in a freak automobile accident. While changing a tire on his daughter's car on the road to Hemet, his own car, which was parked behind her car, was hit from the rear by a drunk illegal alien. It crushed Leonard between the two cars. He clung to life in the Hemet Hospital for nearly a week but died on March 7, 1981.

His daughter Margaret wrote over Christmas of 1999 "Daddy was a fabulous grandfather to all the grandkids. Vince still messes him and I wish Hilary could have known him. She will never get to meet anyone like him. He was very smart in a very common sense way and he taught the grandkids (kids too) so many things they will always need to know through life."

Clara next had a relationship with Arthur Alfred Eisenacher. Arthur was born on 11 Jun 1918 in Bay City, Bay, Michigan5 and died on 15 Mar 2007 in Perris, Riverside, California at age 88.

General Notes: Art is a retired machinist. He and Clara make their home in Perris, California until his death in 2007. Clara now resides on her property on Missouri Trails in Perris with her daughter Nora and several grandchildren and other relatives.

ARTHUR ALFRED EISENACHER 11 Jun 1918 15 Mar 2007 (P) 92570 (Perris, Riverside, CA ) (none specified) 367-01-8889 Michigan

Noted events in his life were:

• 1930 Federal Census: Arther Eisenacher appeared in the 1930 federal census in Portsmouth Township, Bay County, Michigan with his parents, Charles A. amd Anna Eisenacher, both 45 years of age, born in Germany, and married 25 years. Charles' occupation was as a machinist. His older brother Frederick A., aged 20 and born in Germany was listed as an instector in an automobile factory. Likewise, his sister Alice, aged 18, born in Michigan, was also listed as an instepctor in an automobile factory. From the ages of these two children. it is apparent the family immigrated from Germany to Michigan about 1911 or so. His older sister Alice, aged 18 worked as a laundress in a hotel. His sister Helma 17, had apparently finished school but was unemployed. His other siblings, Arno 15, Elsa 15, and Elizabeth 8 all were still in school, as was Arther.

2. Oscar Jack Leggitt,1,7 son of Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt and Leila E. Dinkins, was born on 14 Oct 1879 in Valdosta, Lowndes, Georgia,1,7 died on 20 Feb 1954 in Crawford, Roger Mills, Oklahoma1,7 at age 74, and was buried in Berlin Twp, Roger Mills, Oklahoma.1,7

General Notes: According to his family, Oscar was born in Valdosta, GA 18 October 1879. However, his parents were married in Macon County and during the census taken in June 1880, they were in northwestern GA in Cobb County.

Source: 1880 Georgia census, Cobb County, Vol 6, ED 32, Sheet 9, line 22.
See his father's notes.

According to his son, Jack Leggitt, Oscar attempted to join the U.S. Army Cavalry during the Spanish-American War in 1898. Oscar passed the physical requirements but his horse was too short. At that time enlistees had to provide their own horse and there were physical requirements for it as well as the man.

I cannot find Oscar Leggitt in the 1900 census for Texas, Georgia, or Oklahoma. However, on 16 June 1900 when the federal census was taken, his father, step-mother, brother and sister were enumerated in Justice Precinct Number 3, Hunt County, Texas.

Source: 1910 Texas census, Knox County, Vol 89, ED 154, Sheet 4, line 49.

An interesting fact of the 1910 census is that Oscar is listed as a boarder on the farm next to his brother Louis' farm.

Source: 1920 Oklahoma census, Roger Mills County, Berlin Township, ED 149, Sheet 5A, line 23, house 83 /family 87. Enumerated on 31 January 1920.

His daughters, Clara and Kate, wrote in the Memories of Berlin Oklahoma in 1977 that Oscar had married a (name unknown) widow about 1910 who was in very ill health. She had a small daughter. He nursed his wife and cared for the little girl until the woman died. He took the girl back to Texas to her mother's family. In 2012, FamilySearch.org listed a marriage record for Oscar Leggitt and Edna Vowell who married 19 Feb 1912 in Custer, Oklahoma, United States. Ancestry.com lists an Edna Vowell Vassello as a 21 year old sister-in-law in the household of Frank M Vassello in in the 1910 federal census for Clinton, Custer, Oklahoma. There is a four year old girl named Ruby Vassello just below Edna's entry. Both Frank and Edna were born in Texas. From this I assume Edna was married to Frank Vassello's brother and they had Ruby. The brother probably died before 1910. When I shared this with Oscar's youngest daughter Mae, she said "Daddy told me his first wife had tuberculosis." When I shared this with Oscar's youngest daughter Mae, she said "Daddy told me his first wife had tuberculosis."

A family story tells of the time, before Oscar married Inez, that he went on a cattle drive to Kansas. The men ran out of money on the way home. They bought a cow for $2.00. They shot her and ground the meat into hamburger. They sold hamburgers to get enough money to get home.

One night at a dance in the home of John Taylor he met the sparkling vivacious young widow, Inez Harrington. They were married in 1914. His gentle nature was never a match for her aggressive domineering spirit. However, he did his best to provide for their growing brood and he loved her dearly until he died in 1954.

Naomi Hussey wrote Mae Leggitt in 1963 "Your own Father had a very marked sense of rhythm. All of you probably are too young to remember when he and your mother were much younger, he danced with great enjoyment and skill. I am sure that is akin to music appreciation."

From Oscar the children learned to be kind and think of others; also, he stressed always pay your debts. He was a kind and gentle man. He taught the older girls to read and write. Both parents were very intelligent and put a great store on books and newspapers.

One time the young girls needed to go to Elk City to buy school clothes. Oscar took them in their old '26 Dodge pickup. Going and coming they had 21 flats. One day Oscar took the Dodge to Sayre and traded it even for a Model A Ford.

Once four of the children went to a party over north of Spritzer's Store on the grey mare, ol' John. When they came home late, they all went to sleep on her back. Ol' John came right on home and up to the barn door.

When yo-yo's came into vogue, the girls fashioned a 20 foot string on one. They would sit on the platform of the windmill and yo-yo.

At breakfast Oscar would always say, "The start of another day, until someone spoils it." Someone usually did.

There was a dry sand bed north of their house. Oscar made money pulling cars through it with a team of horses.

Oscar was a farmer most of the time after he married Inez. For a few years, just before his death, he lived with his daughter Clara in California and worked as a laborer in the construction business. His children recall that Oscar had many physical ailments, brought on by hard work, no doubt. They feel he really didn't like to farm. He would have much preferred a regular day time job.

There is a discrepancy in the date of Oscar's death. At the time of his death, he was living in a mobile home on Jack and Kate McDaniel in Crawford, OK. He was found dead the morning of February 20, 1954. We do not know if he died the night of February 19 or the morning of February 20. The tombstone indicates February 19 and the obituary indicates February 20. The death certificate cited below states the date of death as February 20.

Death certificate: Oklahoma state file number 002843, indicated death at 1:00 AM, Feb 20, 1954.

Death resulted directly from myocardial infarction, antecedent cause due to coronary sclerosis. Other significant condition was angina pectoris.

Mae Leggitt Finney provided me the following obituary:

3. Margaret Inez Hussey,1 daughter of Jediah Clark Hussey and Lucy Graham Capps, was born on 24 May 1886 in Vernon, Wilbarger, Texas,1 died on 5 Feb 1980 in Sayre, Beckham, Oklahoma1 at age 93, and was buried on 8 Feb 1980 in Berlin, Roger Mills, Oklahoma, , Berlin Cemetary.1

General Notes: Much of the historical reminiscences comes from stories recalled by her children, Clara, Jack, Kate, and Mae. I have intermingled the stories in an attempt to maintain a proper timeline.

She was named Margaret Inez. The Margaret was from her Aunt Margaret Catherine Capps whom she knew as Aunt Maggie. Many references to Inez are as Maggie Inez.

Inez Hussey was reared and grew to young womanhood west of Sayre. She met and married Ernest Harrington from Berlin, OK, in 1907. The young couple filed on land north of Berlin near the Indian Hills. They had two pretty blond girls. When the girls were very small, in about 1910 Ernest developed the dread disease tuberculosis. They went by covered wagon to New Mexico so Ernest could regain his health. However, the illness soon overcame Ernest and he died in 1912. Inez returned to the claim with her two girls. Her brother, Franzel Hussey, came to live with her and do the heavy work.

Inez met Oscar Leggitt at a dance at the John Taylor farm. Her sister Naomi recalled that Inez and Oscar had great natural musical and danced beautifully together. She married Oscar Leggitt in 1914. They lived for a while on the Pittsburg Ranch north of Berlin. They lived in a house made of sandstone and logs. It was one of the buildings surrounding the main ranch house. Later, they moved to a small two room house near Edenview.

See pictures of two land grants made to Inez Leggitt in 1917. One was for 160 acres in the northwest quarter of Section twenty-seven in Township twelve north of Range twenty-three west of the Indian Median, Oklahoma. The other was for the north half of the northwest quarter of the same Section.

In about 1920 the family lived in a half dugout with tar paper on the exposed lumber. A big rain had washed some of the tar paper from the boards and down into the dugout. Hazel woke up in the night and stepped out of bed onto water and drowned kittens. At that same place the girls got very sick, so Inez called Dr. Steel from Berlin. When the girls heard the horse and buggy coming, the big girls led the little ones out the washed hole in the wall and hid until they heard the buggy leaving, they were probably expected black draught (a popular purgative of the time that had the consistency of dried tea leaves and about a tablespoon was taken orally dry). Anyway, they all got well.

In the early 1920's, Oscar and Inez moved their growing family to some land they purchased from the Pittsburg Land Company. It was seven miles northwest of Berlin. Inez's brother, Elmer Hussey, died from mustard gas he had been exposed to during World War I. Inez received a portion of his insurance. She used the money to build a house and set out an orchard. The soil was sandy and very fertile. They built a big comfortable house with six rooms. While a Mr. Montgomery from Needmore was building the new house, Hazel and Clara hauled a load of lumber from Cheyenne in the wagon. The girls recall they were given a lot of responsibility at a very young age. They always did their best.

Before the house was finished, one day Inez told the girls to throw their mattress out of an upstairs window and take it to the new house. She then took the mattress inside and gave birth to Jack.

The girls recall that Inez was a school teacher and worked through the years with the county agent to learn new skills of farm work.

Oscar and Inez had a thing about varmints getting their chickens. One time Inez shot a hawk in the air with a chicken, through the screen door she killed the hawk.

Oscar raised cotton and broom corn to sell for a cash crop. He raised cane to make into molasses and feed for the stock. They remained on the farm until about 1950 when the last of the seven children was raised and gone.

For the next twenty or so years, Inez lived in a little house in Cheyenne, OK. She remained very active in the community until she was nearly 85. She would frequently contribute historical articles to the local newspapers.

She maintained her thing about varmits. A family story has it that a neighbor's bull would lean over her fence and eat Inez's garden. On day she got fed up with it. She emptied the shot out of shotgun shell and put salt rind in the casing. When she shot the bull with it, the two rinds made a perfect "X" on the bull's forehead and killed it dead away

When Inez died in 1980, this story circulated all over Cheyenne. Several years earlier in Cheyenne the gas was supplied by a very unreliable pipe line coming from the south. It was out of service a lot of the time one winter. Giles Peterson managed the repairs. Residents had to manage the best they could for some heat. Inez usually went to a neighbor's house. One day she met Giles Peterson on the street. She said, "When I die, should I go to hell, I hope you are furnishing the gas."

4. Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt, son of Mathew H. Leggitt and Elizabeth Allums, was born on 13 Apr 1851 in Montezuma, Macon, Georgia and died on 2 Apr 1911 in Caddo Mills, Hunt, Texas at age 59. The cause of his death was Died of dysentery and nephritis.

General Notes: Source: 1860 Macon County Georgia census, page 135. 770 District, 16 August 1860, post office Montezuma. He is listed in the household of his parents as Lewis F. Leggett, age 9.

The 1870 Georgia census for Macon County, Montezuma, Lewis is listed as a nineteen year old in school living with his older brother Edmund and his family. Interestingly, the census shows that his future wife Leila Dinkins is living just four houses up the page as a ten year old student with her mother Heniretta and brother Charles.

LDS microfilm 310946. This indenture made the ninth day of January in the year one thousand eight hundred and seventy five between Lewis F. Leggitt of the County of Macon and State of Georgia of the first part and Clemintina M. Leggitt of the same place of the second part. Whereforth the said Lewis F. Leggitt of the first part for and in consideration of the sum of four hundred and fifty dollars cash in hand paid before the delivery hereof hathe bargains and sold save by these presents doth grant and convey unto the said Clementina M. Leggitt her heirs, Executors, Administrators and aforgive forever all and signatures his undivided interest both real and personal in the Estate of both Elizabeth and Mathew H. Leggitt both situated in the fifteenth district of originally Houston now Macon County State of Georgia together with all and singular the testaments --- --- --- of --- thereunto belonging and the --- rents, --- and profits thereof and all the estate title and interest of the said Lewis F. Leggitt to the said premise as any part therof.

Signed by Lewis F. Leggitt and witnessed by Edmund A. Leggett

Note that this is just about the time that Lewis and Leila were married and struck off for Valdosta where Oscar was born in 1879 and Atlanta for the 1880 census. Apparently Lewis needed a little stake to start his life.

Marriage: Macon Co., Ga. Marriage Book B, 1872-1880, page 446 by J. J. Cheeves, M. G..

Listed in 1880 Georgia census as a farm laborer in Cobb County.

Listed in 1900 Texas census in Hunt County with new wife, Leanda - Louis (Lewis F.) and Nona were living with them. So is Henrietta McKinzie, mother-in-law. She was 57, born Dec. 1842 in Georgia. Her father was born in North Carolina - her mother was born in Georgia. Note that she is too young to be Leanda's mother. (See mention of Leander J. Denkins in Leanda's notes.) Listed in 1910 Texas census in Hunt County with Lona (Nona?) and his mother-in- law, Henrietta McKinzie, age 67. Note that this Henrietta has the same first name and age as Henrietta Dinkins in the 1870 Macon County, Georgia, who was Leila Dinkins' mother.

Name changes from census to census. 1860-Lewis F. Leggett, 1870-Lewis P. Leggett, 1880-Louis Leggitt, 1900-Louis F. Leggitt, 1910-Lewis F. Leggett.

His marriage to Leander Jo Dinkins (Mrs. J. L. Davis) is recorded in Hunt County, TX Marriage Book G, page 271, 12 Nov. 1891.

His marriage to Sarah C. Spears is recorded in Hunt County, TX Marriage Book L, page 202, 21 Oct. 1902.

In a visit with Thelma Renee Leggitt Lea in May, 1996, she recalled her grandfather as a small, square shaped, bearded man. He would always bring them a tin of hard candy when he visited. He drove a "hack" (apparently a vendor's wagon) from which he peddled household and foodstuff items including medicines. Many of his customers did not have money to pay for the items and would pay for them by giving him live chickens. Thelma recalls wire chicken cages hanging from beneath the bed of the hack. He would also then sell the chickens.

Source of death: Texas Death Records 1903-1940 from Brenda Hay, 707 Jonathan Dr., Euless, TX 76040, on 1 Feb 1994. Index indicated name as Louis Fillmore Leggitt, Hunt County, index number 8744. Interestingly, just above Louis' entry, there is an entry Leggitt, Louis Inf. of, Hunt County, Mar ? 1913, 6469.

These are the only two Leggitt entries for Hunt County. However, there is a Mrs. T. V. Leggett, Hunt County, June 8, 1918, 25328. There are no Leggitt or Leggett entries in either Knox or Haskell Counties where Lewis' son Louis lived.

Mae Leggitt told me the following in 1993:

Daddy told me a story the night before we moved from the farm to Cheyenne. He said "His father was the youngest of 7 sons and they lived in Georgia on a plantation. He said the older brothers were playing poker one night and started losing. They lost all their money and finally the only thing left to wager was the plantation. The debt was so large the winner said "double or nothing" and they lost the hand and the plantation. So that was the reason his father changed the spelling of his last name and moved his family to east Texas." He also said they were in a terrible flu epidemic and his eyes had been very weak from that time on.

Needless to say, this story does not coincide with the will of his father and mother and the indenture where Clemintina effectively buys his portion of their estate.

The following is from Preston Leggitt's Leggitt Family History (1994):

CHAPTER 6. LEWIS FILLMORE "JACK" LEGGITT (My Great Grandfather)

I read somewhere that after the War Between the States, many of the houses in the South were found vacant with the initials G.T.T. scrawled across the door -- Gone To Texas.

Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt was the youngest son of Matthew Hunter Leggett and Elizabeth Allums Leggett. He was 13 years old when his father Matthew died. His mother Elizabeth died when he was 18. He lived for a while with Doctor Edmund A. Leggitt, his brother. He is shown on the 1870 Census as "still at school", and living with Edmund and family.

He married Lelia E. Dinkins on January 24, 1878 in Valdosta, Lowndes Co. Georgia. They had 3 children:

1.) Oscar Jack Leggitt born October 14, 1878 in Valdosta, Georgia. Oscar married Maggie Inez Hussey Harrington in 1915 in Berlin, Oklahoma and died February 20, 1954 in Crawford, Oklahoma.

2.) Louis F. Leggitt, born September 21, 1881 in Macon County, Georgia. Louis married Effie Octavene White December 15, 1901

3.) Nonie D. Leggitt, born December 14, 1888 in Texas. died August 26, 1933.

Times were very hard in Georgia after the war and it was hard to make a living. Between 1881 and 1888, Lewis Fillmore moved his young family to Texas. They first came to Caddo Mills, near Greenville, Hunt County, Texas.

At this time, there were already other Leggetts in Texas. Leggetts had been in Texas at least since 1836 when John T. Leggett and his brother came from Pike County Georgia to fight against the Mexicans. Matthew H. Leggett owned land in Pike County in the late 1820's and early 1830's. I don't know if any of these people were even related but more than likely they were at least cousins. As early as 1811, a David Leggett had received a pass to go West through the Mississippi Territory. A J.S. Leggett got married in nearby Collin County of Texas in 1870, at least 11 years before Lewis Fillmore Leggitt brought his young family to Texas. This county is Northeast of Dallas near Lake Lavon, very close to Caddo Mills, where Lewis Fillmore first settled in Texas. There were several other Leggett families in the Caddo Mills-Lavon-Greenville area including a Doctor J. L. Leggett who died in 1902. Perhaps Lewis Fillmore Leggitt first heard about Texas through letters from these people to relatives back in Georgia.

Lewis' wife Lelia Denkins Leggitt reportedly died as a result of complications in the childbirth of Nonie in 1888. Nonie was mentally retarded from birth and never progressed very far in school.

Lewis F. married his 2nd wife, Leanda Jo Denkins in 1892. She was the sister (RCL - really her aunt) of Lelia, his first wife. She was always known to the kids as "Aunt Jo." He and his family were in the Caddo Mills area for the 1900 Census. He listed his occupation as farmer at the time. Residing in the house were Lewis, Leanda (Jo), Louis, and Nonie. (RCL note: see Leanda's notes - she was actually Lelia's aunt, not her sister.)

Database: Texas Marriages, 1851-1900

Name:L. F. LEGGITT
Spouse:J. L. [Mrs] DAVIS
Marriage Date:12 Nov 1891
County:Hunt
State:TX

By 1910 Census, Lewis Fillmore Leggitt was again a widower. Living in the house were Nonie, Lewis, a Henrietta McKenzie. Aunt Thelma said Mrs. Mckenzie was the mother of Lelia and Leanda Jo.

Aunt Thelma Lea recalled that he worked as a traveling salesman or peddler. He operated a mule drawn wagon traveling from house to house, farm to farm, selling pots, pans, sewing notions, food items, tools, etc...and bartering in most cases because most people had no money. Underneath the wagon, cages were mounted which held the chickens and eggs that many people would barter for goods.

Lewis Fillmore Leggitt died April 2, 1911. He died at Caddo Mills, Texas. I have been unable to locate his grave at this time. (RCL note: see the note at the end of Lewis' son Louis' notes. It details the efforts Preston has gone to in attempting to find Lewis's grave. He says he will take some liberty here and suppose that if a man (Louis Leggitt, my Grandfather) had buried his father only 2 years before at Caddo Mills, then his child is stillborn, he would want the child buried with his Father. We know that the child was brought from Greenville to Caddo Mills for burial. I now believe that the child and the child's Grandfather Lewis Fillmore Leggitt are buried together in Elm Creek Cemetery. Cemetery listings in the State Genealogical library show 7 or 8 unmarked graves in Elm Creek Cemetery. I believe we now know possibly who 2 of these are. It may be that the graves are marked, but stones are buried or missing.

RCL note: In April 1996 Preston Leggitt discovered a small metal storage box owned by his Aunt Thelma Lea which was in the possession of her daughter Evelyn Fletcher. In addition to some insurance papers, the box contained several pages from a family bible and a portrait of Lewis F. Leggitt. The bible pages contained the following inscriptions:

Birth, Marriage & Death
Name: Louis Fillmore Leggitt
Death: 2 Apr 1911 in Hunt, Texas

Lewis married Leila E. Dinkins on 24 Jan 1878 in , Macon, Georgia. Leila was born on 23 Dec 1860 in , , Georgia and died on 3 Jun 1891 in Probably, Hunt, Texas at age 30.

Children from this marriage were:

2         i.  Oscar Jack Leggitt 1,7 (born on 14 Oct 1879 in Valdosta, Lowndes, Georgia - died on 20 Feb 1954 in Crawford, Roger Mills, Oklahoma)

         ii.  Louis F. Leggitt was born on 21 Sep 1881 in , Macon, Georgia and died in 1951 in Rochester, Haskell, Texas at age 70.

        iii.  Nona D. Leggitt was born on 14 Dec 1888 in , , Texas, died on 26 Aug 1933 in Woodward, , Oklahoma at age 44, and was buried in Berlin, Roger Mills, Oklahoma, , Berlin Cemetary.

Lewis next married Leander Jo Dinkins, daughter of Isham Dinkins and Elizabeth Brown, on 12 Nov 1891 in , Hunt, Texas. Leander was born on 10 Dec 1849 in Of, Houston, Georgia and died on 17 Jun 1900 in Probably, , Texas at age 50.

General Notes: She is listed in the 1850 census for District 14 for Houston County, Georgia as Josephene.

First marriage: History of Macon County Georgia, Louise Frederick Hays, 1933. Also listed in Macon County marriage records in Hunting for Bears as Leaner J. Denkins.

Source: Appears with Louis in 1900 Texas census in Hunt County.

Preston Leggitt indicates Leanda was Leila Dinkins' sister. However, her approximate birth year (based on 1900 TX census) of Dec 1850 makes her too old to be the daughter of Leila's mother Henrietta. Here is a quote from Preston's Book-2 notes:

Lewis F. married his 2nd wife, Leanda Jo Denkins in 1892. She was the sister of Lelia, his first wife. She was always known to the kids as "Aunt Jo." He and his family were in the Caddo Mills area for the 1900 Census. He listed his occupation as farmer at the time. Residing in the house were Lewis, Leanda (Jo), Louis, and Nonie.

From this I can hypothesize two situations:

First, if Preston is right, Leanda Jo Denkins must be Leila's half sister since she couldn't be Henrietta Dinkins' daughter - she would have to be the daughter of Leila's father by a previous marriage.

Second, Leanda Jo Denkins could have been Leila's aunt, the sister of her father. I tend to favor this second situation since my assumption is that the father is Charles M. Dinkins, born about 1837 according to the 1860 Dooley County, GA federal census.

In either case, The History of Macon County mentions on page 674 that Macon County Wedding Book B indicates a marriage of Warren W. Davis and Leander J. Denkins in 1868. This Leander J. apparently was widowed (or divorced) and married Lewis F. Leggitt in 1892 after the apparent death of Leila shortly following the birth of Nonie in 1888.

Therefore, I have merged the records of Leanda Jo and Leander J. Denkins in my database.



Lewis next married Sarah Catherine Spears on 21 Oct 1902 in , Hunt, Texas. Sarah was born on 3 Jun 1868 in , Lee, Virginia, died on 21 Jun 1923 in , Lea, New Mexico at age 55, and was buried Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery in Midway, Lea, New Mexico.

General Notes: The 1900 federal census for Texas, Hunt County, Justice Precinct 3 District 127 has a Sarah C. Spears as a boarder in the household of Colbert and Oliva Ashberry, age 32, born in Virginia.

Sarah is probably buried in the Hext Cemetery under the headstone marked Lelia Leggitt. Lelia's grand daughter Kate McDaniel mistakenly assumed that Lewis Leggitt's wife who died in 1913 was Lelia, not Sarah. Lelia had died in 1891 and is probably buried in Texas.

New development - in 2009 Preston Leggitt provided me the following:

I was just playing around on the internet and reading some of your entries for Louis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt. Found a controversy I need to ask you about.

Re: SARAH CATHERINE SPEARS,

In one place you mention she is buried next to Nonie in Oklahoma, even though the headstone says Lela.

I ran into a listing on the internet that says she is buried NE of Lovington, NM in Lea Co. NM with her mother and sister. Antioch Baptist Church cemetery, a rural church about 15 miles NE of Lovington on the TX/NM state line.


Here is the listing: SARAH CATHERINE SPEARS; b. 3 June 1868, Lee Co. VA, died 21 Jun 1923, Lea Co. NM. Spouse: Married 21 or 27 Oct. 1902 Hunt Co. TX to Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt, b. 13 April 1851 in Montezuma, macon co. GA. He died 2 April 1911 Hunt Co. TX

Father Adam Hickman Spears, b. 7 Oct. 1841 Washington co. VA, died 25 July 1906, Dallas Co. TX
He md. Mary Lou Farshia (Ward) Spears 8 Jan. 1849 in Lee Co. VA. She died
15 Mar 1931, bd. next to Sarah Catherine spears. Several other Spears, maybe brothers and sisters.

A couple of other questions???

Lelia Denkins died abt. 1889??

Lewis Fillmore (Jack) (L.F. Leggitt) md. Leanda Jo Denkins (Ms. J. L. Davis) 1891. (Is she sister or Aunt to Lelia?? She died or left before before 1902 ??

Sarah C. Spears md. Lewis Fillmore leggitt in 1902. He died in 1911. She died in 1923 in NM.

1910 Census shows shows Henrietta (Denkins ??) McKenzie in house. It is believed she is the mother-in-law to Lewis and mother to Lelia and/or Leanda Jo ??

Here is the Antioch Baptist Church cemetery record for Block K:

5. Leila E. Dinkins, daughter of Charles M. Dinkins and Henrietta H., was born on 23 Dec 1860 in , , Georgia and died on 3 Jun 1891 in Probably, Hunt, Texas at age 30.

General Notes: Source: 1880 Georgia census, Cobb County.

Source: 1870 Georgia census, Macon County. (See mother.)

In various records, her name is spelled Lela, Leila, and Lelia.

Marriage: Early Georgia roundup Marriages, Maddox. Macon County Lewis F. Leggett and Lela E. Dinkins, 1878.

According to Preston Leggitt, Lelia died in Texas shortly after her last child, Nona, was born. He does not know where she is buried. Later, Preston found a bible record indicating Lelia's death as 3 Jun 1891.

There is a tombstone in the Berlin Cemetery in Berlin, Oklahoma marked as Lela Leggitt. That headstone was prepared at the direction of Kate Leggitt McDaniel many, many years after the burial. Kate mistakenly assumed that the body was that of her grandmother. In reality it was actually the third wife of Lewis Fillmore Leggitt, Sarah. Sarah was Oscar's and Nona's step-mother. See the notes of Nona Leggitt for additional explanation.

The actual tombstone reads:

In loving memory to our grandmother
LELA LEGGITT
Died 1913
Wife of L. F. Leggitt
Mother of Lewis, Oscar, and Nonie

Leila married Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt on 24 Jan 1878 in , Macon, Georgia. Lewis was born on 13 Apr 1851 in Montezuma, Macon, Georgia and died on 2 Apr 1911 in Caddo Mills, Hunt, Texas at age 59. The cause of his death was Died of dysentery and nephritis.


6. Jediah Clark Hussey, son of Thomas Hussey and Aletha Benbow, was born on 25 Mar 1848 in Mill Creek Mm, Hendricks, Indiana, died on 23 Mar 1924 in Vernon, Wilbarger, Texas at age 75, and was buried in Pioneer Cemetery, Hext, , Oklahoma.

General Notes: The source of Jediah's middle name cannot be traced back through either the Hussey or Benbow lines. However, two of his aunts (Nancy and Mary) married into the Clark family. In fact, according to the Back Creek MM, John and Nancy Clark with children Judiah, Daniel, Alfred, Anna, Martha, Ann, and Thomas, were granted certificates to White Lick MM, 1832, 7, 27, basically the same time that Thomas (1832, 5, 30) and Agatha (1832, 7, 25) Hussey were granted theirs. It is almost certain there was a very close tie between the Hussey and Clark families.

Abstracts of the Records of the Society of Friends in Indiana, 1868, 4, 1. Plainfield MM Jediah received in membership.

Not much is know about Jediah (or Judiah as his descendants call him). From the above record it is evident that he was raised in the Quaker environment. However, none of his grandchildren recall that he was a Quaker. Since his mother died when he was nine and his father when he was 10, someone else had to have raised at least him and his younger sister, Rebecca.

In the History of Hendricks County, Indiana, 1885, page 388, there is a J. C. Hussey who was mustered as a Corporal Aug. 15, 1862; promoted Second Lieutenant May 10, 1863; First Lieutenant Sept. 27, 1864. (Since our Jediah wasn't born until 1848, he would certainly have been a "boy soldier" if this is he.)

The 1870 federal census taken at Plainfield, Guilford Township, Hendricks County, Indiana on 30 July, 1870, Clark Hussey is listed as a single farmer, aged 22, born in Indiana with real estate worth $3,300.

Prior to 1880 Jediah married Louisa and over the next five years they had four children. Little is known about about this time in his life. However, from census records for the birth of his children, we can assume that he met and married Louisa about 1875 in her birth state of Illinois or in Missouri where their first three children were born. Letha was born in Gentry County, Missouri in Aug 1879 and Hardy Brown was born in Kansas in 1881 so the family must have removed between these times. By mid-1885 Louisa had died he had married Lucy in Wilbarger County, Texas.

The 1880 federal census taken in Miller, Gentry County, Missouri lists the following:

Clark HUSSY Self M Male W 31 IN Farmer --- ---
Louisa HUSSY Wife M Female W 25 IL Keeping House VA IL
Oscar C. HUSSY Son S Male W 4 MO IN IL
Effie A. HUSSY Dau S Female W 2 MO IN IL
Letha A. HUSSY Dau S Female W 10M MO IN IL

In his late thirties, he married Lucy Graham Capps, apparently in Wilbarger County, Texas, since they were there when Maggie Inez was born in 1886.

The 1900 Oklahoma census indicates that Elmer, Mabel, Bernice, Franzel and Naomi were born in Arkansas between March 1888 and September 1898. When the family moved to Oklahoma, Lucy's older sister, Maggie C. Hollis came with them.

It was by sheer chance that I found the family in the 1900 census. I was scanning through the 1900 Oklahoma SOUNDEX (sound index) for Capps and found Elizabeth listed as being enumerated with "Gediah" Hussey. Without that lead I would never have found the entry since it was not under Jediah or Judiah where it should have been. (The soundex for a given set of surnames matching that sound pattern is sorted by first names, not by surnames.)

Here is a summary of the 1900 federal census. They were enumerated in Oklahoma County in the Cass township on 5 June. (Microfilm T623 Roll 1340.)

(Notice that both Lucy and Maggie thought their father was born in Alabama.
LDS records indicate he was born in South Carolina. He moved to Alabama as a young adult.)

A note of interest: Franzel T. Hussey was the ennumerator for the 1920 census for his district. This started a long series of involvement with the federal census. In 1930, Oscar Leggitt took census. In 1950 Clara and Jack Leggitt did. In 1990 Philip Leggitt, Jack's son, was a census taker.

Also, Maggie C. Hollis is very probably Margaret Catherine Capps who married John Howell Hollis in 1877 in Dorsey County, AR. Final observation - is Margaret the namesake of our Maggie Inez? (Yes, Naomi Hussey confirmed this in a letter to Patsy Meehan in 1968, shortly before Peggy Leggitt died. She said Inez was named for Aunt Maggie.)

Another little tidbit - at a family funeral in October, 1992, Jack Leggitt told me that family lore has it that Jediah died from accidentally eating rat poison. Apparently he awoke one night with indigestion and went to the kitchen to take some baking soda. Because of the shape of the box, he took rat poison instead. (Sarah confirmed this when I talked to her in 2002.)

In a letter to Patsy Meehan in 1968, Naomi Hussey indicated "My parents at one time owned lots in what is now the cetral part of Oklahoma City."

In that letter, Naomi also said "Franzel also told me for sure where my Father was born, and I think I wrote you that. I had been told that my Mother was born in Kansas, but he said positively that she was born in Texas. She spent most of her life prior to their move to Oklahoma in Arkansas. I know that she always spoke of that as her home, and loved it, except for the chills and fever. Her oldest sister, Maggie Hollis lived there until her death, and I am sure that some of her children or granchildren are there now. I had to look through the atlas to find the town whose name ran a bell with me, and I am sure it was Warren, some miles south of Pine Bluff. I just recall any of the Hollis children's names except one son, Buster, who came to Oklahoma and spend some time at our house. ... You know that I have been away from the family so long that about all I can recall are things that happened when I was quite young or that I heard spoken of then. I have to do some thinking to recall any of it. Inez was named for Aunt Maggie. Aunt Maggie also spent one winter at our house when I was a teenager. Gertrude recently got a death certificate for my father, but I don't know hwere she sent for it, and I don't get very definite answers to questions I ask her. ..."

The LDS Ancestral File indicates Jediah died in Vernon, Wilbarger County, Texas. However, Mae Leggitt assures me he is buried next to his wife in Hext, Oklahoma. Mae thinks that he died at Hext, Oklahoma. She said that times were hard then and she cannot believe that they would not have buried him in Texas if he had died there.

In 1996 I visited the Pioneer Cemetery in Hext, Oklahoma and there is a very well maintained Hussey tombstone which identifies both Judiah and Lucy Hussey.

While in Hext my mother pointed out the old Hussey farm house where both her grand parents lived. I took photographs of both locations.

General Notes: Source: Leggitt family records.

Birth: AFN:2J2J-48 indicates birth 1862 in Bradley, AK.

Birth: AF83-002949 indicates 1862 in Cleveland, AK. However, Cleveland County was formed from Bradley county in 1873.

In a letter to Mae Leggitt in 1963, Naomi Hussey said "Your own great-grandfather Capps was an accomplished violinist, called fiddler in the time and place in which he lived, and your grandmother Hussey played the organ by ear in her younger years. Both of them without musical education."

In 1992, Barbara Trammell provided many of the Leggitt family members a photograph of Lucy taken in the very early 1900s. I have a copy.

The 1911 obituary of her mother indicates her living in Oklahoma City.

Cheyenne Star, Cheyenne, OK 25-Apr-1947
Mrs. Lucy Husssey was born in Arkansas in 1862 and died April 16, 1947 in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Leggitt in Cheyenne. Mrs. Hussey was married to J.C. Hussey at Vernon, Texas. Later they moved to Oklahoma and homsteaded west of Sayre in 1900 where she resided up until the time of her death.
She leaves the following childen, Mrs. Inez Leggitt, Cheyenne, Oscar Leggitt, Sayre, F.T. Hussey, Sayre, Mrs. L.L. McAlpin of Silver City, New Mexico and Mrs. Gertrude Gridu of Amarillo, Texas.

On the 4th of July, 2010 Mae told me:

I don't' think I have ever told you this, but Mama once told me that Grandma Hussey would stand and put her hand over her heart when ever or where ever she was when the Star Spangled Banner was played. She also said that when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor Grandma Hussey took all the china she had that said made in Japan out to the woodpile and chopped it up with an ax.

She was very patriotic, because she had lost her son Earnest in World War I.

8. Mathew H. Leggitt, son of Lewis Leggitt and Alcey, was born on 16 Feb 1792 in , , Georgia, died on 14 Jan 1864 in , Macon, Georgia at age 71, and was buried in Unadilla, Dooly, Georgia, , Walnut Cemetery.

General Notes:
CHRONOLOGICAL EVENTS

According to the Index to War of 1812 Service Records for Volunteer Soldiers from Georgia, Judy Swaim Kratovil, Atlanta, GA, 1986, Matthew H. Leggett was a private in Colonel Jett Thomas' 2nd Regiment (Infantry) Georgia Militia. I later confirmed this in the Index to War of 1812 service records for Volunteer Soldiers from Georgia.

The Georgia Tax Digest for 1817 in Putnam County in Capt. Harry Kendrick's District indicates Mathew H. Leggett, 1 poll, 31 1/4 cents tax. Lewis Legett, 1 poll, 31 1/4 cents tax.

Mathew Leggett's entry in the 1820 Putnam County federal census is in the Captain Mathew Legget District. He is single and his occupation is as an overseer.

According to the 1820 and 1821 Land Lotteries of Georgia, Pub. Ga. Geneal. Reports, Pulaski County - 1820, page 213, Mathew H. Leggett receives Lot 183, Section 7, H. Kindricks Militia District, Irwin County, GA. Interestingly, Lewis Leggett is listed in the same lottery on the same page (213), as an orphan, meaning his father had died after serving in the Revolutionary, 1812, or Indian Wars. Since Mathew later named his last child Lewis, we could suspect that this Lewis and Mathew were brothers, or at least cousins.

From the GA Archives card file, quoted by our cousin Charlotte Thomas Marshall,

Mathew Leggett -- Ens., Putnam Co., Dec. 3, 1816 - Aug. 23, 1818 (MR 1808-29, p. 10)

Lieut., Putnam Co., April 5, 1819 - Aug. 4, 1819 (MR 1808-29, p. 32)

Capt., Putnam Co., June 4, 1819 - July 25, 1821 (MR 1808-29, p. 36)

Mathew was in Putnam County for the 1820 and 1830 federal census. Before 1840, he and Elizabeth had moved to Macon County.

In the 1820 Putnam County federal census, Mathew is listed as a single individual between the ages of 26 and 45. The most interesting revelation of the census information is that his entry immediately follows the census entry of Alcey Leggett. She is listed as a female older than age 45 with two females between 10 and 16. From this, I have assumed Alcey is Mathew's mother and that his father was deceased in 1820.

On Aug 15, 1823, Mathew H. Leggett purchased 75 acres in lot 228 and 35 acres in lot 229 in the 10th district of the original Baldwin County, now Putnam County, from John Rook for the sum of $350. (Book K, page 359.)

On Jan 2, 1824, Matthew H. Leggitt (clearly spelled with an "i") purchased 75 acres in lots 228 and 229 of Putnam County (formally Baldwin County) for the sum of $350 from Hugh Millican. (Book K, page 455.)

The 1824 Putnam County tax digest indicates Matthew H. Leggett 2 polls land on Murder Creek adjoining Pounds 77 cents tax.

The 1825 tax digest indicates Mathew H. Leggitt 3 polls 202 1/2 A in Pike Co. and 490 A in Irwin. 1.68 1/4 tax.

The 1826 tax digest indicates Matthew Leggett 3 polls 202 1/2 A in Pike Co. and 490 A in Irwin Co. 1.69 tax.

In the 1830 Putnam County federal census, Mathew and his family are listed in the Captain John B. Mathis District. He is listed as between 30-40, his wife 20-30, 1 male and 1 female less than 5, and 1 male and 1 female between 5 and 10. He also has two slave women between 10 and 20.

On Jul 20, 1830, Matthew H. Leggett purchased 132 1/2 acres in the 14th district of originally Baldwin, now Putnam County for $550 from Daniel C. Maund. (Book N, page 305.)

The 1830 tax digest indicates Mathew H. Legget 3 persons liable to tax (slaves & his poll) 202 1/2 A. Pike Co. and 490 Irwin Co. granted to self 1.68 tax.

On November 20, 1834, Mathew H. Leggitt of Houston County, GA, purchased lots 181 and 182 in the 15th District of Houston County for $1400. Contained 405 (2 times 202 1/2) acres. (Book F, page 534.)

On December 15, 1835, Mathew H. Leggett of Houston County, GA, purchased lot 56 in the 14th District of Houston County for $750. Contained 202 1/2 acres. (Book F, page 702.)

Of additional interest in Book F, within about a five mile area in the 14th District, Nelson Legitt, Azer S. B. Legett, and Isham Dinkins were involved in land transactions. Also, in Book G, John N. Leggitt purchased lot 119, Dist 14, in 1835 and sold it in 1836.

On August 28, 1836, Matthew H. Legget of Houston County, GA, purchased lot 103, in 15th Dist. Houston Co., GA for $1000. 202.5 acres. (Book G, page 36.)

On Feb 16, 1837, Matthew H. Leggett of Houston Co. GA, sold lots 181 and 182 in the 15th Dist. Houston Co., Ga. to John Rushin for $2800.. 2 x 202.5 acres. (Book G, page 193.)

The tax digest of 1838 indicated Matthew H. Legget paid one poll tax, had 2 slaves, and 202 1/2 acres in Captain Singleton's District, District 15, Macon County. Tax was $1.12 1/2 mills.

In the 1840 Macon County 770 District Georgia Militia, Mathew H. Leggate is listed as between age 40 and 50, with one male less than 5, two between five and ten, one female less than five, one between 10 and 15 and one between 30 and 40. He had four male and eight female slaves.

Also of interest in the 1840 census is a Sarah Leggate in Macon County 814 District Georgia Militia listed as between 40 - 50 with one male between 20 - 30, one female between 6 - 10, and three female between 10 and 15. Sarah could have been the wife of Mathew's deceased brother. (However, the 1860 Macon census lists a Gilbert D. Leggett who was born about 1819 in South Carolina.)

He would be the same age as the above one male between 20 - 30. In 1994, a distant cousin, Maxcy Foxworth of Marion County, SC, told me this is Gilbert D. LeGette, son of Abner LeGette, son of Absalom 3 Legett. The Asa Leggett mentioned in Elizabeth Leggitt's notes is Gilbert's brother. Isn't this interesting that we find these two branches of the family in Macon County at the same time? )

The Montezuma Record, Friday, April 12, 1889 "As you are Now so Once, etc.", a letter to the editor indicated "Take the following list of taxpayers of the 770th District G. M., June 10, 1843. Many of them worth more than a hundred thousand dollars, who were the money kings of the community, to whom the merchant in his hour of need bent the knew of suppliance and begget the use of the planter's surplus. You, of the present generation, scan the list and you will find the name of just one man of all the number who is living today. How vain is earthly glory. On June the 10th 1843, the following persons were subject tax in the 770th District, G. M. ... Jacob Fudge, ... William Rushin, Samuel McKenzie, ... John A. Hunter, John J. Haugabook, ... John McKenzie, Sr., ... Mathew H. Legget, ..."

According to the History of Macon County, by an Act approved December 20, 1849, Matthew Leggett (et al) was appointed trustees of the Wellington Academy and made a body corporate. This academy was situated about a mile northeast of Spalding, and was used for many years.

The 1850 federal census was the first to include the names of the spouse and children. In the 1850 Macon County 770 District census lists Mathew as age 58, a farmer with a wealth of $6,000. The census also included James - 17, Edmund - 15, William - 9, Elizabeth - 47, Leome - 14, Martha I (or J) - 8, Emaline - 4, and Bethany - 1 1/2. He had 24 slaves. The census information is on page 116 and dated 13 August 1850.

Combining the 1850 names with the previous census information, there must have been four older, grown children who, had left home by 1850. They would have been a boy and girl born between 1820-1825 and a boy and a girl born between 1825-1830.

The Georgia Tax Digest for 1852 in Macon County indicates Matthew H. Legett, 1 poll, 1 person subj. to military duty, 388 a. in 15th Dist. including land lot 188.

Macon County, Georgia. Deed Book "A" indicates Mathew H. Leggett grants to Naoma Watts, wife of Dr. Alexander A. Watts and daughter of Mathew H. Leggett 1 Negro woman (17 yrs. old) and her child (14 mo.) , also Negro girl (7 Yrs.) and future increase of all and each. During her life, to her children, if no children, to sisters and brothers, or title back to James Leggett, son of Mathew H. Leggett, as trustee. Recorded December 26, 1857.

1860 Macon County Georgia census, page 120, 770 District, post office Montezuma, 16 Aug 1860, shows Mathew as a farmer with real estate of $10,000 and personal estate of $18,585. Elizabeth is 52, Edmund is 25 and a farmer with $1,200, Martha J. is 16, Evaline is 14, Bethany is 11, and my great grandfather Lewis F. first appears as age 9. Evaline, Bethany, and Lewis are listed as at school.. Also listed at the residence are HARPER, (none listed) 50 M Teacher, Comm. School VA, and EVERETT, Elizabeth 30 F Teacher of Music GA.

Matthew 23 slaves. Edmund had 1 slave.

James is listed separately as 28 and a farmer with $5,000 in real estate. His wife is Elizabeth A., age 27.

Name changes from census to census. 1820 Putnam-Legget, 1830 Putnam-Leggate, 1840, Leggate, 1850 Macon-Legget, 1860 Macon-Leggett.

According to History of Macon County Georgia, 1933, Mathew's original will is dated 9 Jun 1857 and a codicil is dated 4 Apr 1863.

Mathew must have been a fairly successful farmer and business man. The 1860 census indicates his real estate holdings were $10,000 and personal assets of $18,583. In 2004 dollars, those combined assets would amount to roughly $560,000.

[The Watts and Walters cemeteries are both located near the above.]

When I chatted with Matt Leggitt in May, 1993, he indicated that in 1985, his uncle, Samuel Hunter Leggitt, had the graves and stones moved to Walnut Cemetery, Unadilla, Ga., old section NW. Unadilla is about 15 miles east south east of Spalding, in Dooly County, just off of Interstate 75.

SHL Sr.- Matthew H. Leggitt was born on February 16, 1792, at an unknown Georgia or North Carolina town. His parents were Lewis and Anna Leggitt. He was married on December 20, 1821, to Elizabeth Allums, who was born on May 18, 1808, and who died in Macon County, Georgia, on June 18, 1869. Matthew H.

My cousin Maxcy Foxworth told me in 1994 that Asa is Asa LeGette, Absalom 3 Legett's grandson.)

The relocated cemetery plot in Walnet Cemetery at Unadilla does not contain any mention of Elizabeth Allums Leggitt. However, Charlotte Thomas Marshall commented in Some Southern Colonial Families, Volume 5, page 612, that Elizabeth/dau. of Sarah &/ Edmond Allums/ wife of Mathew H. / Leggitt / 8 May 1808 / 18 June 1869, is one of at least six other family members who was buried in uninscribed graves in the Leggitt Cemetery near Spalding, Georgia.

Elizabeth married Mathew H. Leggitt on 20 Dec 1821 in , , Georgia.10 Mathew was born on 16 Feb 1792 in , , Georgia, died on 14 Jan 1864 in , Macon, Georgia at age 71, and was buried in Unadilla, Dooly, Georgia, , Walnut Cemetery.

10. Charles M. Dinkins, son of Isham Dinkins and Elizabeth Brown, was born about 1836 in Of, Houston, Georgia and died on 22 Jun 1863 in , Macon, Georgia about age 27.

General Notes: Note: See father, Isham's record. There is a Charles M. Dinkins who witnessed at land transaction for him in Houston County, Ga. in 1829. I suspect it is this Charles' uncle.

Houston County Deed Book K, page 122 contains the following: Georgia Houston County || Having recently arrived at the age of twenty one years, I have this day received of Roscoe Lipsey, who has for years been my guardian, four negroes, to wit Hannah and her three children, Mary, Simon, and Elvira; and which is in full of all claiming and demanding, that I have or hold against the said Roscoe Lipsey, my guardian as aforesaid. This June 1, 1859.

Charles M. Dinkins, (No Seal.)
Attest: Eli Warren, Not. Replic and John S. Jobson Recorded June 1, 1859.

Source: 1860 Dooly County, GA, federal census, MF803119, page 423. Listed as C. M. Dinkins aged 23 with $1,000 real estate and $4,500 personal property. Wife is listed as H. H. aged 17. Census was taken on 30 June 1860 in the post office area of Byronsville.

While this is circumstantial, that C. M. is Charles M. and H. H. is Henrietta, for now I am assuming it as correct.

There are no Dinkins listed in the 1840 and 1850 Dooly Co. census.

According to Roster of the Confederate Soldiers of Georgia 1861-1865, Volume I, Muster Roll of Company C, 55th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry Army of Tennessee C.S.A., Dooly County, Georgia, DINKINS, C. M. - Private May 3, 1862. Appointed 5th Sergeant Nov. 10, 1862; 3rd Sergeant Mar. 1863. Discharged May 8, 1863.

While at the Georgia Archives in 1996 I viewed his service record. I was quite surprised at the amount of information that was contained for Charles M. Dinkins. There were thirteen separate records. In summary, it showed that he had enlisted in Montazuma, Macon County, Georgia, on the 3rd of May, 1862 for a period of three years. He was assigned to Company C, 55th Georgia Infantry. Company C was commanded by Captain Wm. J. Collins. The 55th Georgia Infantry was commanded by Colonel Harkie.

(Ancestry.com indicates a C. M. Dinkins enlisted the same time and company. However, it listed Dooly County as the claimed residence.)

The various service records show the following:

Company Muster Roll, enlisted May 3, 1862, Pine Hill, GA for 3 years, age 25, rank private.

Company Muster Roll, May 16, 1862, Dooly County, GA rank private

Register Return, Dec 1862, Detailed after deserters, 21/62. Rank Sgt.

Company Muster Roll, Sept 1 to Dec 31, 1862, Pine Hill, GA, appointed sergeant 10 Nov 1862. Sent after deserters 21 December 1862.

Undated, claim of $15.00 for commutation for rations while on detatched service to arrest deserters and while returning to camp from 20th December 1872 to 12th January 1863. 20 days at 75 cents per day. Paid at Cumberland Gap, Tenn by Major Chas. D. Brown on the 10th day of March 1863.

Company Muster Roll, Jan and Feb 1863, present, rank 5 sergeant.

Company Muster Roll, March and April 1863, Furloughed home from Knoxville, Tenn. Apr. 16, 1863, by order Brig. Gen. Davis..

Company Muster Roll, May and June 1863, rank sergeant. Discharged May 8, 1863.

A claim for pay for deceased soldiers was filed on 4th December 1863 by John Causey, administrator for the estate of Charles M. Dinkins. Thomas W. Sutton appeared to certify that he was well acquainted with both Sutton and Dinkins.

Strangely (to RCL), Thomas Sutton authorized William A. Walton, agent at Richmond, Va. of the Georgia Relief Hospital Association to receive and receipt the amount due him (Sutton) based on the above claim. On December 8, 1863 John L. Parker of the Ordinary, Macon County, certified that John Causey was the legally appointed administrator on the estate of Charles M. Dinkins.

Register of Claims of Deceased Officers and Soldiers from Georgia which were filed for settlement in the Office of the Confederate States Auditor for the War Department presented by William A. Felton, Atty. on Dec. 19, 1863. Where died - Macon Co, Ga.

Treasury Department, Second Auditor's Office on Nov. 17, 1864 requested The Adjutant and Inspector General, C. S. to report the term of enlistment and the service and death, &c., of Charles M. Dinkins deceased late a Sergeant of Captain W. J. Collins' Company "C" 55th Regiment of Georgia Volunteers. The report indicated he died on the 22nd day of june 1863, enlisted May 3/62 3 yrs, discharged May 8th/63.

Unfortunately, I could not find any of the administration records for the estate of Charles M. Dinkins while I was at the Georgia Archives in May 1996. A knowledgeable individual there indicated that during the latter Civil War years not too much attention was paid to these type records.

To complicate things, none of the the above records mention anything about Charles M's wife and children. The final point is that his apparent son Charles D. Dinkins was born in 1865 according to the census. If Charles M. Dinkins died in 1863, it would have been difficult to have a child born in 1865.

Charles married Henrietta H.. Henrietta was born in Dec 1842 in , , Georgia and died after 1910.

Children from this marriage were:

5         i.  Leila E. Dinkins (born on 23 Dec 1860 in , , Georgia - died on 3 Jun 1891 in Probably, Hunt, Texas)

         ii.  Charles D. Dinkins was born about 1862 in , , Georgia.


11. Henrietta H. was born in Dec 1842 in , , Georgia and died after 1910.

General Notes: H. H. Dinkins, aged 17, is listed with her husband C. M. Dinkins, aged 23, in the 1860 Dooly County census residing in Byronsville. Interestingly, the two families above her are McKensey. This is significant in that Henrietta married a McKinzie between 1870 and 1880. She is listed as a McKinzie widow in 1880.

Source: 19 Aug 1870 Oglethorpe, Montezuma District, Macon County, GA federal census. Series M593, roll 163, page 566, household 2080.

There is no husband listed. Could he have died in the last years of the civil war, since his son Charles was born in 1865 (war ended 9 Apr 1865)?

It is of special interest that the Edmund Leggett household is 2084, just four entries away from the Dinkins entry on the same page. His younger brother Lewis Leggitt is living there and will later marry Henrietta's daughter, Leila.

By coincidence, the 1910 Hunt County, TX federal census lists a Henrietta Mc Kinzie, age 67, born in Georgia, living in the household of Lewis F. Leggett, aged 58 and his daughter Lona, age 21. Could this Henrietta be Lewis' mother-in-law and Lona's grandmother? Apparently it is -

Source: 5 Jun 1880 Merritts District, Cobb County, GA federal census. Page 11, 99/142.

This entry is two pages away from the Louis Leggitt's entry on page 9, 75/116.

As with the 1870 census, there is no husband listed. However, the census in this case indicates she is a widow. The following is a summary of the 1880 entry:

McKenzie,HenriettaW F 37 WidowFarmerNo diseasesGAGAGA
C. D.W M 18 Son Laborer" "" "
AnnieW F 4 Dau At House" """
CoraW F 1 Dau At House" "" "

The ages of the two younger children indicate that Henrietta married the unknown McKinzie before 1876 and he died sometime after 1878.

It is interesting that Cora is the same age as her nephew, Oscar Leggitt.

Henrietta also appears in the 1900 and 1910 Texas census as mother-in-law in Lewis F. Leggitt's household.

Henrietta's ancestry has been a mystery for many years. In 1997 while at the Family History Library I scanned the 1850 Houston County federal census for any occurrences of daughters named Henrietta aged about 7. I found the following:

204 SHINE, William 50 m Farmer 1500 NC (Charles Dinkins was listed as a member of family 407.)
Judyann 28 f GA
Henrietta 8 f GA
William 6 m GA
James 4 m GA
Lemuel 4m m

625 had a wife name Henrietta HADDOCK, age 20.

657 had a daughter Henrretta LOFTIN, age 11.

1021 had a daughter Henrretta SEGIST, age 4.

1052 had a boarder named Henrrietta MOORE, age 19.

1098 had a daughter Henrretta, age 14.

While it initially seemed possible Henrietta SHINE might be our ancestor, she also appears in the 1860 Houston County federal census, the same year that H. H. appeared with C. M. Dinkins in the Dooley County federal census. Also, the 1850 census indicated that William Shine was born in NC. Later census information for Henrietta indicates both her parents were born in Georgia. However, just recently (Nov 2008) I noticed that the 1900 federal census for Hunt County, Texas where she is listed as Louis Leggitt's mother-in-law, she indicated she was born in Georgia, her father in North Carolina and her mother in Georgia.

I did the same search for Dooly County.

25 Jno. W. BARROW had a daughter Henrietta, age 6. (Not in 1860 census.)

691 J. J. COLIER had a daughter Henrietta, age 7. (Checked page 514 in 1860 census and she was listed there as a 16 year old..)

There were also Henriettas aged 1, 4 , 17, 5, and 4. However, none had a family naming pattern that led me to believe any was our ancestor. Ideally, I would like to find a head of family named Oscar with a daughter Henrietta H. age 7.

Likewise I check Pulaski and Bleckley Counties federal 1850 census. These bound Houston County on the south and east. I only found one Henrietta, age 1.

More recently, Ancestry.com made the 1850 federal census available online. The following is the result of a search for individuals named Henrietta who were born in 1843 in Georgia:

Henrietta Harvel District 19, Bryan, GA abt 1843
Georgia Henrietta Butch District 19, Bryan, GA abt 1843 Georgia

Henrietta Kirtley Marietta, Cobb, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Colier District 24, Dooly, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Reynolds District 146, Greene, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Duncan Cains, Gwinnett, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta G Ship Not Stated, Murray, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Rankin Columbus, Muscogee, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Roberson Subdivision 65, Newton, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Edwards Division 66, Oglethorpe, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta M Snead Division 73, Richmond, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta E Isdale Division 90, Warren, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Mayo Washington, Wilkes, GA abt 1843 Georgia

From the above, Henrietta Colier is the most logical since Dooly County was where C. M. & H. H. Dinkins appear in the 1860 federal census. Unfortunately, there is no further record of her parents (J. J. and Sarah Colier) or her siblings in subsequent records. Likewise, there is no record of a similar family in the 1840 Georgia census.

Henrietta married Charles M. Dinkins. Charles was born about 1836 in Of, Houston, Georgia and died on 22 Jun 1863 in , Macon, Georgia about age 27.

Henrietta next married McKenzie about 1875. McKenzie died about 1849.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Annie McKenzie was born about 1876 in , , Georgia.

         ii.  Cora McKenzie was born about 1879 in , , Georgia.


12. Thomas Hussey, son of Jediah Hussey and Agatha Henley, was born on 11 Feb 1810 of Back Creek Mm, Randolph, North Carolina, died on 29 Aug 1858 at age 48, and was buried in White Lick Mtg, Hendricks, Indiana.

General Notes: According to The History of Guilford County, North Carolina by Sallie W. Stockard in 1902, the Quakers as early as 1772 were discussing slavery and the sin of it; and in 1774 they freed their slaves. They chartered a ship, The Sally Ann, to transport their slaves to Hayti, where they might be free.

Early in the nineteenth century the Quakers participated in organized efforts to protect and restore the freedom of those negroes kidnapped and sold into slavery. Some also participated in the underground railroad that helped slaves escape to the north.

Needless to say, slaveholders themselves indulged in heavy threats which intimidated many non-slaveholders, including many who had no knowledge of the underground railroad. Though these were innocent, they could not endure the sentiment. They started a migration to the Northwest. Whole counties in Indiana and Ohio were peopled by Guilford County stock and their homes were left vacant. The first emigrants went west by horseback, with pack horses, following the buffalo trails. These animals had come to Guilford to feed on the great peavine pastures in the winter. In the spring they went again to the northward, fording the Buffalo Creek, the Haw River, the Dan River, at the best fords. Buffalo trails and buffalo fords were an advantage to those seeking outlet westward.

About 1830, four hundred families went west from Guilford County. The efficient cause was slavery, the old, old story of the time. It was probably with this group that the young Thomas Hussey, his widowed mother, and two sisters began their migration from North Carolina to the White Lick Monthly Meeting in Morgan County, Indiana.

Whole families and monthly meetings went west from Guilford. Deep River Monthly Meeting, Dover Monthly Meeting, Springfield Monthly Meeting, New Garden Monthly Meeting were impoverished by the constant drain of migration.

The census of 1850 brought out the fact that nearly one-third of the population of Indiana was from North Carolina, while Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas each had a large number of Carolinians.

Since both Thomas and Aletha died in 1857-8 while still quite young, it is of interest that in 1857-59 there was a worldwide influenza epidemics (one of disease's greatest).

Thomas married Aletha Benbow on 2 Oct 1834 in , Hendricks, Indiana. Aletha was born on 17 Feb 1815 in New Garden Mm, Guilford, North Carolina, died on 7 Jul 1857 at age 42, and was buried in Mill Creek Mtg, Hendricks, Indiana.

CAPPS, William, Elizabeth D., WC-11721, 14 Jan 1899 & SC-13468, both TX, srv Curtis' Co 1st AL Vols as Pvt.

Sources: 1887 Mexican War Pension Affidavit of Claimant's Infirmity for pension certificate 13468.

On 24 December 1887, William Capps, a resident of Vernon, Wilbarger County, Texas applied for a Mexican war pension. He said he served as a private in the company commanded by Captain James M. Curtis, in the first regiment of the Alabama Volunteers, commanded by Colonel P. H. Raiford, in the war with Mexico.

He enlisted at Montgomery, Alabama on 1 May 1846 for the term of six months, and was honorably discharged at Mobile, Alabama, on 10 August 1846. He stated that after enlisting at Montgomery he was transported to Brazos Island and was on 4 July 1846 marched to Buneta, Mexico. The application also indicated he had received land warrants for service in the war with Mexico for one year in 1846 and one in 1856. Certificate 13468 was granted to him. The amount was $8.00 a month. Family lore says his "cousin" President Zachary Taylor arranged this pension. I have never found any genealogical connection between these two; however, Zachary Taylor was known as "Old Rough and Ready" during the Mexican War. Possibly there was a personal relationship between the two.

He applied for an increase to $12.00 a month on 16 February 1893 when he declared he was wholly disabled for manual labor by reason of old age and crippled - having had left knee thrown out of place and left leg broken about two inches above the knee. He also indicated he was suffering from heart disease which became so aggravated that he had been forbidden by physician to wholly abstain from strong food, drinks, and tobacco. Apparently he was not granted the increase.

Apparently he needed the certificate in 1893 for the above. There is a series of five very interesting affidavits. Jennie West, his eighteen year old daughter, stated that William and E. D. Capps separated in about 4th November 1889 and ceased to live together as man and wife. He said Elizabeth had kept it after the separation. She said her daughter had sent it to him. A neighbor said she had seen him with it in February 1891 when he was very much intoxicated and was on his way to Arkansas. In Elizabeth's affidavit, she said they had had fifteen children.

Copies of these applications and affidavits were provided to me by Mrs. Barbara Trammell.

Southern Arkansas Biographical and Historical Memoirs, Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Southern Arkansas 1890, Chapter 25, Cleveland County, page 595 has the following: The first term of the circuit court of Dorsey (now Cleveland) County convened Tuesday, July 8, 1873. The county was then, as now, in the Tenth Judicial District and Hon. Henry B. Morse was then Judge. The grand jurors summoned to serve at that term included W. E. Capps. He was on the first panel.

Here is an interesting message I received from Frances Thomas (Prodigy BDFC85A) on 05/12/92

Roy,
Your post caught my eye because I have been interested in the Capps families in Ark. and Tex. Larkin Capps who d. in 1846 in Crawford Co., Ark., had a son, John N. Capps who was b. 1827 in Crawford Co., Ark., shows up in Grayson Co., Tex. in 1870, and then is in Montague Co., Tex. in 1880. John N. Capps d. in 1896. He and his wife Lucy J. Capps are buried in the Dundee Cemetery in Archer Co., Tex.
Carson W. Capps was a son of John N. and Lucy J. Capps, and both Carson and his wife died in Wilbarger Co., Tex., of which Vernon is the county seat. So there are some similarities in migration patterns between your William E. Capps and those that I have been researching.
There was a Ransom Capps in Bradley Co., Ark. at the same time as your William E. (both on the 1850 census). In the 1860 census index, William E. is still there, but Ransom is gone. Apparently he moved to Mason Co., Tex., because while living there he applied for a Confederate pension, (application # 18091).
It would be interesting to know if there was some connection between William E., Ransom, and John N. Capps.
Frances in TX

Here is another message that hints of a connection:

To: DWHW06A Roy Leggitt Date: 2/22/95 From: TPRG23A Lloyd Bashaw Time: 10:40AM ET

Roy, is it possible that your William E. Capps was William Capps, III? The following info is excerpted from "Henderson County Heritage - North Carolina Vol. I":

William Capps, Sr. - b. 1761 d. 1847 m. Nancy Cooksey 1791. Their children were Cornelius, William, Jr., John, Elizabeth, Matthew, Enoch, Hannah, Nancy, Lucina, Sarah, Rebecca, and Mary. The first four were born in Edgefield and Greenville Counties. William, Jr. was born in 1793 and died in 1856 (?). No further info about him is given in this book. William, Sr. fought in the Battle of Cowpens in South Carolina under Gen. Daniel Morgan where they defeated the British. 1790 census records in Edgefield county listed five Capps families: Matthew, William, Barney, Michael, and Greenberry.

William, Sr. and his son Matthew are my ancestors. If you would like to research the Henderson County Capps families further, please E-mail me.

An interesting fact is that there was a Wm. Capps who was the enumerator in the Enumeration District #93, Election Prct No 7, 1880 Tarrant County, Texas Manufacturing Census Schedule. What makes this interesting is that his daughter Dora was living in Fort Worth, Tarrant County in 1911 when her mother died there.

William married Elizabeth D. McCaskill on 15 Sep 1852 in , Bradley, Arkansas.15 Elizabeth was born on 25 Jul 1836 in , Simpson, Mississippi, died on 15 May 1911 in Fort Worth, Tarrant, Texas at age 74, and was buried on 16 May 1911 in Oakwood Cem., Block 103, Lot 12.

15. Elizabeth D. McCaskill, daughter of Daniel McCaskill and Catherine Rutha Cassierue Graham, was born on 25 Jul 1836 in , Simpson, Mississippi, died on 15 May 1911 in Fort Worth, Tarrant, Texas at age 74, and was buried on 16 May 1911 in Oakwood Cem., Block 103, Lot 12.

General Notes: Elizabeth D. McCaskill, 14 and born in Mississippi, is listed in the 1850 Census in Smith Township, Bradley County, Arkansas with her mother, Rutha Jagguars and younger sister Sarah L. McCaskill.There house number in the census is 380. Interestingly, her future husband, William E. Capps, is listed on the next page in house 393, as an overseer on the farm of Joseph M. Merriweather.

One of her articles, Tales from Grandma Capps, told the following:

Grandma was a fine looking old lady and after Grandpa died, she got a soldiers pension of $6 a month. She used that to pay her train fare from one member of the family to the next and stayed three months. She would have $18 to buy her ticket.

Once when Granma was at our place and the dugout leaked, we held the parasol over her. She told us yarns.

Grandpa's name was Bill Capps. Her name was Elizabeth Graham Capps. She was a bound girl. My grandmother was the eldest of 14 children so she was bound out (no adoption) to a man and his wife. She was to work as a servant without pay until she was 18 or until she married.

They were married at Fort Sill. Grandma cooked for the soldiers there.

When my grandfather was transferred to Caldwell, Kansas, Grandma was left there.

Grandma Capps got loaded in the covered wagon to follow her husband. The soldiers cut a map on the wagon box so she could find the water holes. The water was about one day's drive apart. They gave her a sack of flour, some coffee and a side of meat.

There were no roads, no towns, only army camps. She stopped awhile at Fort Elliot, Texas and cooked for the soldiers. She got another keg of flour and some coffee. Also she had a sour dough jar and a shot gun and some shells. when night come near the waterholes, cowboys had killed a cow and it was divided up.

She shot rabbits, deer and antelope for meat. She made it to Caldwell.

On 24 August 1899, she was granted $8.00 a month pension for her deceased husband's Mexican war service due to age and dependence. It was increased to $12.00 a month on 19 April 1908.

Her death certificate indicated she died of uremia at 9 PM on 15 May 1911 at 1700 May Street in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas. She was buried 16 May in Oakwood, Forth Worth.

The Fort Worth Record, Tuesday Morning, May 16, 1911, page 5, column 1.

16. Lewis Leggitt was born about 1755 in Probably, , North Carolina, USA and died from 1817 to 1820 in Probably, Putnam, Georgia about age 62.

General Notes:

ORIGIN OF THE LEGGITT SURNAME

American Ancestry states that the Leggitt surname and its various spellings came from Osborne Legatus, the papal legate to England, he was of Havering, Essex, England, 1250-1307. American Ancestry traces this line from Osborne Legatus to the Reverend Theodore A. Leggett, born in Hopewell, NY in 1873. (The Catholic Encyclopedia has a detailed definition of Legate at http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/09118a.htm.)

The English and Welsh Surname Dictionary says:

Leggatt, Leggett, Leggitt, Leggott, Leggate, Leggat. -
(1) Local, 'at the lidgate' (q.v.), an inevitable corruption; 'atte Lidgate' or 'Lidyate' was one of our commonest entries, and must have left many representatives.
(2) Offic. 'the legate,' an ambassador, a commissioner; M.E. legate, legat; O.F. legat.

EARLIEST AMERICAN HISTORY OF THE LEGGITT LINE

One in this line, John Leggett, came to Barbados in 1636 and to New Hampshire in 1640. His son, Gabriel Leggett patentee of the West Farms, Westchester County, NY, is considered the immigrant of the Leggett name. A manuscript prepared by Reverend Theodore Leggett before his death in 1906, entitled Early Settlers of West Farms Westchester County, N.Y., traces nearly 600 of Gabriel's descendants from the late 17th century to the beginning of the 20th century. This manuscript is available in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, July, 1913.

At the current time there appears to be a minimum of three individual major Leggett lines in early America.

It seems a majority of the northern Leggetts stem from Gabriel Leggett of West Farms, Westchester County, New York.

There is a Pennsylvania based line that starts with Sutton Leggett and Hannah Green in the early 1700s. Ruth Petracek of Santa Ana, California, was just about ready to publish her work on this line in 1993, but she and her husband both became ill and she indefinitely postponed publication. (Unfortunately, Ruth Liggett Petracek died 18 Jan 2003.)

The third major line is based on John Leggett who settled in Princess Anne County, Virginia and Currituck County, North Carolina in the late 1600s.

Alita W. Sutcliffe of Charlotte, North Carolina, published her Legett Chronology in 1992 which provides much information on this line. In March, 1996, David Avant of Tallahassee, Florida, published his Some Southern Colonial Families, Volume 5, which devotes 326 pages to this southern Leggett line. (Much of the content of this book that applies to our line has been included in this book. Notes prefaced with AWS identify information provided by Alita.)

Another source for this line is Jack Leggett of Center, Texas. Jack has a vast computer database based on Lewellyn Leggett who migrated into Mississippi shortly after the Revolutionary War.

While the spelling of the Leggitt name has many, many variations, there appears to be another separate line based on the Liggett line. At least some of this line starts out in what is now West Virginia. Harry Liggett of Akron, Ohio is an authority on this line and has published a genealogy based on it.

The consensus of most people involved in the ancestry of Matthew H. Leggitt (RCL's 2great grandfather) and his father Lewis Leggitt is that our common ancestry is through the John Leggett of Princess Anne County, Virginia. Jack Leggette of Warner Robins, Georgia, wrote me in early 1994 and presented a very detailed analysis that supports this idea. I transcribed Jack's analysis into the notes of that John Leggett.

The various spellings of the specific surname cause serious problems, especially when attempting to locate a specific individual using the computer.

For simplicity I will attempt to use the commonly accepted spellings for established decadency lines that clearly exist in the present time. Since both Alita Sutcliffe and David Avant use LEGETT for the spelling of their earliest lines, I will also use that spelling until I reach a point where I know there is a more specific spelling. For instance, the descendants of the so called Marlboro Legetts tend to use LeGette as their surname. All descendants of Mathew H. Leggitt and his father Lewis use the Leggitt spelling.

Many of the descendants who migrated through Mississippi to Texas tend to use the Leggett spelling.

After years of detailed research I have not been able to directly connect our ancestor to the acknowledged immigrant John Legett who was transported to Princess Anne County, Virginia in about 1669. However, it is very generally agreed that our Lewis does descend from this John Legett. See notes from Jack Leggette of Warner Robins, GA, 20 Feb 1994 below for a good analysis of this assumption.

LEWIS LEGGITT IN NORTH CAROLINA

The search for our ancestor Lewis Leggitt is fraught with sparse and ambiguous information. The fact that he is our ancestor comes from the tombstone of Mathew H. Leggitt. The stone apparently originally read that Mathew was the son of Lewis and Anna Leggitt. However, even this is clouded with some doubt. The stone in 1972 was missing the corner that indicated "Lewis".

It appears there is more than one Lewis Leggitt in North Carolina and Georgia during our Lewis Leggitt's life time. Roster of Soldiers from NC in the American Revolution, page 141 says Lewis Leggett was a private in Blount's Company under Colonel Abraham Shepard. He enlisted 20 July 1778 for 9 months. (Another source has this same information for Lewis Leggett, but adds that he was in the deserted status on 30 August 1778.) Page 199 shows #532 Lewis Legett, Privt being given allowances of pay at Hillsboro, May 1, 1792.

Another reference in the text indicates #532 Lewis Leggitt, of Newbern District, enlisted at Halifax on Sept 3, 1778 for three years. (This reference to Newbern is important in that a John Leggett was granted land there on the Neuse River in 1770 and Edmund Allums sold land on the Neuse River in 1789.) On one page of this text #532 Lewis Leggitt from Newbern and #705 Lewis Leggett are both listed as having enlisted from Onslow Co., NC, in 1778 for a period of three years. A Lewis Leggett married Ann Hawkins in Bertie County, NC on 3 May 1780. (It is probable that this is not our Lewis since a Lewis Leggett died in Bertie County in 1792 and his wife Ann was appointed as the administrator.)

Roster of Soldiers from North Carolina in the American Revolution, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1984 indicates several Legg(e/i)tts served during this war. They include Abraham, Absalom, Daniel, Elias, and Lewis. In fact, there are several entries pertaining to Lewis Legett, Lewis Leggett, and Lewis Leggitt. This text collects records from several sources. I will identify each in case further specific research is required.

Roster of the Continental Line from North Carolina. Reference: North Carolina State Records, Clark, Vol. XVI 1782-1783. 10th Regiment - Col. Abraham Shepard: Leggett, Lewis, Pt., Blount's Company, enlisted 20 July '78 for 9 months.

[Page 74 Folio page 2]
No. 532. Lewis Leggett

From this, I am assuming that the Lewis Leggitt, No. 532 from the Newbern District is our Lewis and the Lewis Leggett, No. 705 is the Lewis Leggett from Bertie County who was married to Anna Hawkins and died in Bertie County in 1792 with Anna as his executrix. I make this assumption based on Lewis Leggitt probably having come from Craven County (Newbern Dist.), the same location where Edmund Allums (Matthew H. Leggitt's father-in-law) owned land prior to moving to Georgia. (Also see Note from Jack Leggette at the end of these notes.)

AWS pointed out to me in early 1996 that my use of Newbern District may be misleading. There was a Newbern District of Beaufort Co., a Newbern District of Hyde Co., a Newbern District of Pitt Co., a Newbern District of Johnson Co., and a Newbern District of Craven Co., etc. Apparently page 219 of Roster of NC Soldiers refers to Newbern District of Onslow Co.,

North Carolina Taxpayers 1679-1790, Volume 2 indicates Louis Leggitt was a taxpayer in Beaufort County in 1786.

Prior to leaving the discussion on North Carolina, I would like to discuss the geographical area where I suspect Lewis Leggitt had his roots. Before I do that, let's look at some clues from the above items.

-- Lewis Leggitt enlisted into the Revolutionary War from the Newbern district.

-- Lewis Leggitt served in Blount's Company in 1778.

-- Lewis Leggitt was a tax payer in Beaufort County in 1786.

-- Blount is a well established name in the northwest Beaufort, western Martin Counties.

-- There is a concentration of Leggett land and court records pertaining to this same corner of Beaufort/Martin Counties.

-- Leggetts Crossroads and Leggett Mill Road are in this area.

-- Shephard Millpond is a couple miles west of Leggetts Crossroads.

-- Jeremiah Leggett started his family in this area. He and his sons had significant land in this area.

-- Most feel Jeremiah Leggett married Sarah Blount. One son was Blount Leggett.

-- Jeremiah and Lewis were born in the same relative time period (1755/60).

-- Neither Jeremiah's nor Lewis' immediate ancestry has yet been established.

-- The little village of Leggett in Edgecomb County is about 30 miles NW of his area. (AWS tells me it is named for a descendant of Absalom Legett of Bertie/Edge. Absalom owned land on Coneto Creek which is at the Edgecombe Co./Pitt Co. line.)

I am almost certain with the concentration of Leggetts in this little area bounded by northwest Beaufort, south central Martin, northern Pitt, and east central Edgecombe counties will lead to the roots of Lewis Leggitt. I would not be surprised to find Lewis and Jeremiah very closely related, possibly brothers, at least cousins.

The following AWS references for North Carolina were provided by her in January 1996. She prefaced them with "Since references to Lewis Legett are so few and far between, every name associated with him has the potential of being important. It would be interesting to know if any of these names are associated with Lewis Legett in GA."

LEWIS LEGGITT IN GEORGIA

A 1790 Census for Wilkes County, Georgia compiled by Frank Parker Hudson (1988) indicates Lewis Leggett was in District GGG. This district being designated by the author was known as Captain James McCluskey's District in 1790. The rank and arrangement of the 3rd District of the Elbert County Militia in June 1791 named Captain James McCluskey as the commander and described the boundaries as: "Beginning at the mouth of Falling Creek, up Broad River to the mouth of Cedar Creek, up said creek to the source, thence a direct line to head of Falling Creek, thence down said creek to the beginning." This area in 1790 cannot be absolutely ascertained from extant records, but it obviously included all the area described above for the 3rd District, plus the area now the site of the city of Elberton. The commissioners appointed to select the site for the courthouse and jail bought 40 acres in June 1792 of a track of 950 acres granted to John Baker on a branch of Falling Creek at the Old Trading Path. The plat of the 950 acre tract (Georgia Surveyor General's Office, Plat Book Q, page 333) shows nine adjoining landowners, six of whom are taxpayers in District GGG for 1790 and one in District FFF.

District GGG in 1790 appears to have included the same area plus the strip between the line from the source of Cedar Creek to the head of Falling Creek north and east to Beaverdam Creek.

In this same census, Absalom, John, and Joseph Leggett are also listed for Wilkes County, although not in the same specific militia district.

In 1792 a Lewis Leggett died in Bertie County, NC and his widow Ann was appointed administrator of the estate and the estate settlement shows that she remarried and she is "Ann (Nancy) Hardison." (Being assigned as administrator instead of executor means there was no will.) This could not have been our ancestor since we know that our Lewis had orphans (under 21) in the 1821 Georgia land lottery. Unfortunately, some of the professional genealogical investigation conducted in about 1980 on the part of Samuel Hunter Leggitt identified this Lewis Leggett as our ancestor.

Our cousin Charlotte Marshall, of Athens, GA, indicates there is no Lewis Leggett mentioned in the Georgia Archives card file.

Georgia Tax Digests, Volume VII shows Leuis Legate as a tax payer in Greene County, Melton District, in 1801. RCL note: Lewallin Legate is listed in the same place. James Leget is listed in Green County, Wiggins District.

Hancock County Georgia Wills and Estates, Book AAAA, in the Inventory and appraisal of estate for Nathaniel Sledge, late deceased 29 Oct 1802, indicates Lewis Leget as having a book account.

The 1805 Georgia land lottery shows Lewis Leget with draw #365 receiving one blank and one prize in Melton district, Greene County. RCL note: The Bride Index of Colonial Georgia Marriage Records indicates a Nancy Legett married Valentine Freeman on 03/10/1805 in Greene County, GA.

Georgia Tax Digests, Volume IX shows Lewis Legget as a tax payer in the White District of Morgan County in 1810. RCL note: Jeremiah Leggett is listed in the same county, Lane district. Also, Morgan County was formed from Baldwin County in 1807.

A Lewis Leggett and Lewis Liggot (probably the same) were listed as jurors for an August 1810 Morgan County jury.

A Lewis Legget paid a poll tax in Morgan County in 1810.

The September 18, 1811 Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper indicated Lewis Legit was in Capt. Billingslea's District. The article apparently listed defaulters who failed to give in a list of their taxable property in Morgan Co. for the year 1811. Of interest is that Jeremiah Legit was also listed in Capt Lane's District in Morgan County.

The May 6, 1812 Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper indicates in the article about Sheriff's sale conducted on the first Tuesday in June next in Madison, Morgan County, one bay mare, taken as the property Lewis Leggett, to satisfy an execution in favor of Joshiah M'Lendon. Most other adjacent articles referred to 4th and 15th Districts, formally Baldwin County.

The Putnam County, GA, Deed Books A, B, and C, which cover from about 1806 to 1814 do not contain any Leggitt (or any other spelling) as grantor or grantee.

In the 1817 Putnam County tax digest, Lewis Leggett is listed in Capt. Harry Kendrick's district with one poll tax. (Mathew H. Leggitt is listed in the same district also with one tax poll.)

Since Lewis was alive in 1817 and his orphans are identified in 1820, it is logical that he died between these two dates.

The 1820 Georgia land lottery shows the orphans of Lewis Legget, of Putnam County in H. Kindrick's District, with draw #254 receiving land in the fifth section in Early County. As an item of interest, Mathew H. Leggett of the same location drew lot 183 in section seven of Irwin County.

Assuming that Alsey Leggett of Putnam County in the 1820 census is the widow of Lewis Leggett, the orphans of Lewis Leggett would be the two females who were between 10 and 16 in that census, meaning they were born between 1804 and 1810. I list these girls as Orphan Girl 1 and Orphan Girl 2.

There is a Lewis Leggett, illeg. listed in the Georgia Land Lottery of 1827 in Putnam County, Kendal's Militia District received lot 188, district 2, section 3 in Troup County.

The 1830 Edgecombe County, North Carolina federal census lists Lewis Leggett in District 12, on page 304. This is obviously not our Lewis Leggitt. However, as a point of interest, there is a very small town named Leggett in Edgecombe County about 15 miles ENE of Rocky Mount.

There is a Louis Legget in the 1850 Putnam County, 70th District federal census on page 291. It is probable that this Louis is the illegitimate son of Ann Leggett who could possibly be our Lewis Leggitt's daughter. As I recall, this Louis was in his early 20's in the 1850 census and is listed as a farm hand.

Note for future research. One of the NC Revolutionary war records for Lewis Leggitt indicates he is from New Bern. New Bern is in Craven County, the same county where Edmund Allums married Winifred Anderson. Loyalist John Leggett was also in Craven County in 1772 when he was granted three parcels of land in Bladen County and one in Anson County.

MISCELLANEOUS LEGGETT RECORDS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH ================================================================
-------------------------
Military Records:
-------------------------

By the revolutionary war, many Leggetts were in North Carolina. As a result of their service in the war, at least two Leggetts, Abner and James, were given bounty land grants of 287 1/2 acres of land in the north eastern part of Georgia in 1784.

The following is a message I received on Prodigy from Lindsey Cook: FROM: LINDSEY COOK (DHCX88A) SUBJECT: LEGGETT, ETAL

Roy, this book contains thousands of names excerpted from military records. LEGGETT by any spelling is only found in North Carolina. As a rule of thumb (not always true), those from N.C. who came to Georgia entered the country thru Philadelphia. Hope this helps. Lnzy

These were in the 1806 land lottery.

The Story of Georgia and the Georgia People 1732 to 1860 by George Gillman Smith, D.D., first published in about 1901, provides much information about how Georgia evolved during the first half century of Mathew's life there.

Samuel Hunter Leggitt Sr.- Lewis Leggitt, whose birth and death dates or places are unknown to me, was a North Carolina soldier in the American Revolution. He enlisted into the Continental Army as a Private from the Newborn District of North Carolina on July 20, 1778, and served in Blount's Company of the 10th Regiment. He is listed on pages 141, 199, 219, and 228 in the Roster of soldiers from North Carolina in the American Revolution published in 1932 by the North Carolina DAR.
His number is 532. His wife was named Anna. (Sam died in the late 1980s. It was later found another Lewis Leggitt married to Alsa was more probably our ancestor. It is hard to tell these two apart.)

Gone to Georgia - Jackson and Gwinnett Counties and their Neighbors in the Western Migration, William C. Stewart, NGS 1965, indicates the following: 227.
LEGGETT (also Liggett): Jeremiah was in the 1805 Jackson lottery. This name is found in Bertie County, N. C., in the 1760s. Jeremiah was enumerated 1820 in Walton County, and in 1827, Jeremiah's orphans were listed in the lottery in Henry County, Ga. In 1830, Thomas was living in DeKalb County.

Note from Jack Leggette
----------------------------------------------------------

The following is a lengthy letter I received from Jack Leggette, 206 Todo Circle, Warner Robins, GA 31088, in 1994, in response to my query for information about our ancestor, Lewis Leggitt. [The bracketed comments are mine for those not familiar with Jack's and my common background.]

February 20,1994

Dear Roy,

I became aware of you through Samuel Hunter (Sam) LEGGETT of Waco, Texas and Lt. Col. David A. Avant, Jr, USAF (Ret) of Tallahassee, Florida. I came in contact with Sam in 1981 when he requested my assistance in obtaining the data applicable to Lewis Leggett. However, he believed that the Lewis who was his ancestor was the one who enlisted from Duplin County, N. C. in 1778 and who died in Bertie County, N.C. in 1792. At the time of Sam's death in 1986, he was still unaware that there was another Lewis Leggett. He had arranged the disinternment and reinternment of his relations in 1985.

David Avant contacted me in April, 1993 regarding my assistance relating to my LEGGETT ancestors, particularly those in Georgia. I reviewed the proposed documentation of the LEGGETT family through several changes and corrections. He agreed with my assessment that LEWIS LEGGETT, who married ANN HAWKINS of Bertie County, N.C. in 1780 and who died there in 1792 was not the LEWIS LEGGET who was the father of Matthew Leggett who was born in 1792, the year of the death of LEWIS LEGGETT of Bertie County.

Helen Leary, a well known professional genealogist in North Carolina was employed by a descendant of LEWIS of Bertie County, N.C. but was unable to develop any documentation that LEWIS, the father of MATTHEW, was the same as LEWIS of Bertie County, N.C. In Mrs. Leary's correspondence, she appeared dumbfounded as to how ANN, the wife of LEWIS of Bertie County, could have a child in Georgia and a few weeks later settle LEWIS's estate in North Carolina.

I don't know who the father of either LEWIS LEGGETT was. I do not believe that either ABNER and JOHN of Georgia was (his)(their) father. I know of no other children that ABNER fathered other than his daughter Prudence, from whom MARIE MITCHELL [correspondent to RCL] is descended. Neither of his sons was named LEWIS.

There were a number of other LEGGETTs who migrated from North Carolina to Georgia before and following the Revolutionary War, among them ELIAS LEGGETT, JUNIOR who is buried at Mt. Nebo Church in Paulding County, Georgia near Atlanta. JEREMIAH, whom I believe to be the son of ELIAS, Sr. who was in Georgia during the time and following the birth of MATTHEW LEGGETT and lived in the same area. So did JAMES LEGGETT and LLEWELLYN LEGGETT, who were the sons of JAMES LEGGETT of TYRELL County, N.C. Also BENJAMIN and WILLIAM LEGGETT of JEFFERSON and later CLARKE County, Georgia.

However, I am way ahead of myself. Allow me to begin anew.

The progenitor of the LEGGETT clan to which I belong and to which I believe you belong, was JOHN LEGGETT of Princess Anne County, Virginia. He is first documented as a resident in the Colony of Virginia by a certificate on which his name and that of three others appeared in support of a claim for land under the "headrights" policy of the Virginia Company of London. The claim was submitted by H. Nicholas under date of 30 Oct 1669 who paid the passage from England for the four (4) people named on the certificate following the demarcation by WILLIAM BYRD in 1728 of the North Carolina/Virginia border, as directed by the King of England the four hundred (400) acres of land which the immigrant JOHN LEGGETT had obtained under the same "headrights" policy by certificate dated 20 April 1682 for payment of the passage of eight (8) individuals from England to Virginia, his land fell into Currtuck County on Knotts Island. JOHN LEGGETT died in 1699. His will contained in Deed Book 1, Pages 256 and 257. He names sons JOHN, DAVID, and ALEXANDER in that will dated 29 September 1694, and his wife ELIZABETH. He also had sons THOMAS and JAMES. James is identified by his brother DAVID as such by a letter (or note) dated 24 June 1712 in which DAVID requests Captain Coke (Clerk of Court, Princess Ann County (PAC)) to record JAMES' cattle mark.

In his will dated 10 April 1749, THOMAS made a bequest of a "Negro boy named WILL to my cousin JAMES LEGGETT, son of ALEXANDER LEGGETT". The term "cousin" was used in lieu of "nephew" almost exclusively at that point in time.

Apparently THOMAS and JAMES were born after the will was written in 1694 or THOMAS was the oldest son and married or away from home at the time the will was written.

There is no record of any daughters of JOHN, although there may have been some.

THOMAS could not be the ancestor of either of us since he had only a daughter, ELIZABETH. ALEXANDER moved north in Princess Anne County (PAC) where he died in 1770. There is no record of his continued association with his brothers, and his children remained in Virginia. There is no documented record that DAVID and his wife SARAH had children.

The offspring of JAMES are all identified in his will dated 1764, even those who pre-deceased him. None of them are in my direct ancestral lineage and likely not in yours. By the process of elimination, that realistically leaves JOHN, the son of the original immigrant JOHN, as our most probable ancestor.

JOHN the son had three (3) sons for whom documentation as such exists; JOHN, JR, DAVID and ABSALOM. The Colonial Records of North Carolina, Records of the Executive Council, 1664-1735, Second Series, Volume VI, 1724-1730, Page 300 reflects a petition which was signed 3 April 1733 by JOHN LEGGETT, JOHN LEGGETT, JR. and DAVID LEGGETT. The father/son relationship between JOHN and JOHN, JR. is self-evident. The only other possibility for DAVID's father is DAVID, son of the immigrant children.

That possibility is quickly and effectively eliminated by (1) the fact that DAVID never lived in Bertie PRECINCT where the petition originated and (2) more importantly, there is no record of DAVID of Currituck County having any children.

JOHN also had another son, ABSALOM, in addition to JOHN, JR. and DAVID. That relationship is well established by a chart prepared by Dr. Wilbur LeGette, a descendant of ABSALOM, some seventy (70) years ago, and known as the LeGette-Wood Chart (see "General History and Record, The LeGette-Wood Family, the Old South", by Lt. Col. David A. Avant, Jr.) Although I have no documentary proof, I strongly suspect that JAMES LEGGETT of TYRELL (pronounced "tear ill) County, N.C. was also a son of JOHN and brother of JOHN, JR., DAVID and ABSALOM. His name is listed in a record of a Council Meeting held at Edenton the 11th of March 1740/1, as having been granted a petition for 250 acres of land in Tyrell County, making his birth date no later than 1719. The same reasons cited for support of DAVID as being the son of the second JOHN apply to JAMES.

In his will of October 1761, ELIAS LEGGETT (SR.) names his brother JAMES as Executor thereof. At his point in time, there are/were three (3) other JAMES! (1) the son of the immigrant JAMES whose residence was Bertie County, (2) JAMES JR., the deceased son of JAMES (1) and (3) JAMES, the son of JAMES, JR.

Even if it were otherwise possible that JAMES of TYRELL County, N.C. were of the appropriate age to be the son of the immigrant JOHN, it is discounted since that would have given the latter two (2) sons names JAMES (totally illogical), with the proven son dying in 1764 and the other in 1785.

Again without documentary proof, but with the same logic previously applied to the available genealogical data, I believe that TITUS LEGGETT, whose estate was inventoried by his wife MARY in Bertie County, N.C. as February 22, 1763 was also a son of JOHN and a brother of JOHN, JR., DAVID, ABSALOM, JAMES and ELIAS. In addition, TITUS had a son named JOHN. It was customary for sons to be named for a brother or father of the child's father.

You and I have the same problem: we are unable to identify the ancestor who connects us to the immigrant JOHN. I am convinced that in each of our situations, he is a son of JOHN, the son of the immigrant.

My Great3 Grandfather, ABSALOM of Bertie County, N.C. is the ancestor whose parents I have been unable to identify after more than 30 years of genealogical research. The first documentary evidence applicable to him is that he is listed on the 1751 Poll Tax Rolls in Bertie County, N.C. with a woman named MARY LEGGETT. N.C. law requires that each male, whether slave or free, who became 16 years of age or any female who owned real property must be listed on the Poll Tax Rolls. Accordingly, ABSALOM LEGGETT of Bertie County, my Great3 Grandfather was born not later than 1735 (1751-16). He, along with JAMES SR. and JAMES JR., as well as TITUS LEGGETT appears on the 1757 Bertie Poll Tax list. Also listed is BENJAMIN LEGGETT, an orphan of DAVID LEGGETT, who appears in the household of THOMAS BOSWELL to whom he was apprenticed.

The problem I have with ABSALOM, the son of JOHN and grandson of the original immigrant JOHN is not more than six years older than he. I have little doubt the two ABSALOMs share an uncle/nephew relationship.

There are only four (4) individuals who could realistically be the father of the younger ABSALOM: JOHN, JR,, DAVID, ELIAS, SR, or TITUS. As I previously stated, there is no record of either the marriage or fatherhood of John Jr. DAVID died in 1756 or earlier in Bertie County. In that year the court apprenticed ANNESS and BENJAMIN and appointed a guardian for JOHN, all identified in court records as orphans of DAVID. Their mother is not identified.

TITUS LEGGETTE died in Bertie County by February 1763. His widow Mary was apparently the Executor since returned the inventory of the estate ABSALOM LEGGETT bought a gray mare for 8 pounds at the sale. SAMUEL, son of TITUS, bought 2 guns. I have to wonder if the MARY LEGGETT who appeared in the 1751 Bertie County Poll Tax with ABSALOM could have been ABSALOM's mother and TITUS' wife, who was separated from her husband at that time. Also, it is possible that ABSALOM bought his father's gray mare at the same sale where SAMUEL, the proven son of TITUS, bought two of his father's guns?

ELIAS, SR. died in 1761. His will dated 22 August 1761 identified his wife as SARAH and appoints his brother JAMES as his Executor and identifies "my three children away from home" as legatees but does not identify them by name nor his four (4) underage daughters. One of the three "away from home" was ELIAS, JR., who was a soldier during the Revolutionary War and who is buried at Mt. Nebo in Paulding County, Georgia.

It seems to me that only DAVID and TITUS among the sons of JOHN and grandsons of the original immigrant JOHN are logical possibilities as the father of ABSALOM, my Great3 Grandfather. Purely on the basis of logic applied to the available documentation, there is a possible connection to only TITUS on the basis that TITUS' wife was named MARY; MARY and ABSALOM appears together as the 1757 Bertie County Poll Tax Rolls; and ABSALOM bought TITUS' gray mare and son SAMUEL bought two of TITUS' guns. My Great Grandfather SAMUEL LEGGETT was the grandson of ABSALOM of Bertie County, my Great3 Grandfather. That constitutes a lot of circumstantial support for identifying TITUS as my Great4 Grandfather and the father of ABSALOM of Bertie County, N.C., the same county where TITUS lived and died. At the time of TITUS' death, ABSALOM was at least 28 years of age and the father of at least a son, DANIEL who also served in the Revolutionary War in 1778 in the Sixth N.C. Regiment of the Continental Line.

WILLIAM, BENJAMIN, JAMES, JEREMIAH, LLEWELLYN, ELIAS, JR., all grandsons of JOHN and Great Grandson of the original immigrant JOHN LEGGETT lived in the general area where LEWIS LEGGETT lived and where MATTHEW LEGGETT was born. Also an ABSALOM and a LEWIS LEGGETT appear in a 1790 listing of the WILKES COUNTY GEORGIA Militia District in a publication entitled "A 1790 Census for Wilkes County, Georgia" compiled by Frank Parker Hudson (1988).

I am enclosing copies of pertinent pages thereunder.

In viewing the map attached thereto, the demographics involved displaying a very close proximity among the location of the four (4) LEGGETTs.

There were three (3) seemingly unconnected families of LEGGETTs in the two Carolinas prior to the Revolutionary War; those whose progenitor was JOHN of Princess Ann County Virginia; those whose known progenitor was WILLIAM of Marlboro County, S.C. and those in Mecklenburg County, N.C. Among all of the Carolinas LEGGETTs, I know of only four (4) whose Christian or first name was Absalom; my Great3 Grandfather, Absalom the son of JOHN, his son Absalom, Jr. and Absalom, the son of William of Marlboro County, S.C. The Marlboro County, S.C. Absalom Leggett moved to Tennessee in the early 1800s. The Marion County, S.C. Absalom Leggett, both the father and son, remained in Marion County, S.C. where the elder died in 1795.

The above leaves only my Absalom as the likely individual of that name who was located in what was then Wilkes County, Georgia in 1790. He would have been approximately 55 years of age at that time, certainly old enough to have a grandson born in 1792, as was MATTHEW, the son of LEWIS LEGGETT.

In 1791, ABSALOM LEGGETT, at that time living in Edgecombe County, N.C., made a deed of gift to his son NOAH by his second wife, who was my Great2 Grandfather and my connection to ABSALOM. At that time, NOAH was 21 years of age. The last documented record I have of my Great3 Grandfather ABSALOM is a deed which he signed as a witness in September 1792 in which KEZIAH STATON, the mother of his daughter-in-law SARAH STATON LEGGETT, (whose husband was ABSALOM's son NOAH) made a gift of property to SARAH STATON LEGGETT.

Although it may seem somewhat far fetched, circumstantial evidence demonstrated the real possibility that LEWIS LEGGETT could have been the son of ABSALOM of WILKES COUNTY, GEORGIA, although I have been able to document only three (3) of his sons; DANIEL (by his first wife), NOAH and EMMANUEL (by his second wife). DANIEL was born GA 1760 and entered Revolutionary War Service in 1778, but never left N.C. nor did NOAH.

EMMANUEL participated in the 1805 Georgia land lottery while a resident of Burke County, Georgia. He was born ca 1770 and would have likely been old enough to be the brother of LEWIS.

JEREMIAH LEGGETT, whom I believe but cannot prove, appears to be the son of ELIAS, SR. He was not of legal age in 1763, as stated in his father's will. He would have been old enough to be the father of LEWIS and lived in the same general area as LEWIS prior to 1800. Neither JAMES nor LLEWELLYN LEGGETT, born in 1758 and 1760 respectively, and both of Green County, Georgia in 1792, were old enough to be the father of LEWIS. The two (2) documented sons of JOHN LEGGETT of WILKES COUNTY, GEORGIA, JOHN, Jr. and ALEXANDER, would have been old enough to be the father of LEWIS. Strange as it may seem, the foregoing strictly on the basis of documentary evidence leaves the very distinct possibility that we may both be chasing the same rabbit

To make it even stranger, the ABSALOM who was in WILKES COUNTY, GEORGIA in 1790 may also be the same ABSALOM whose widow MARGARET and unnamed orphans claimed land in the 1821 Georgia land lottery. However, my own father was 66 when I was born June 3, 1924 in the Crossroads Community of Martin County, N.C., 6 miles southwest of Williamston, N.C.

In addition to that possibility and the fact that we share the same surname, I retired November 30, 1990 as a civilian Contracting Officer for the USAF at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center (WR-ALC), Robins AFB, GA, having lived in Warner Robins, Georgia since January 25, 1965. That places you and I in Georgia, approximately 100 miles apart during the same time frame. [I was at Georgia Tech in Atlanta from 1967-1969.] You might also be interested, in the event you are unaware, that SAMUEL HUNTER (SAM) LEGGETT was a graduate of Georgia Tech.

Please accept my apology for a very lengthy and often rambling dissertation, particularly when delivered in my very poor handwriting. However, the typing would be even worse and I probably couldn't have typed it due to the loss of the requisite manual dexterity of the fingers of my right had due to a so-called mini-stroke in August 1993.

My genealogical data is not computerized; therefore I cannot provide you with a printout of that data. However, I am enclosing my personal copy of "LEGETT CHRONOLOGY" prepared by Mrs. Alita Sutcliffe, 6501 Folger Drive, Charlotte, NC 28270-5339, for your use and return to me when you find it convenient. She may still have copies available at the original $20.00 per copy asking price. [I did in fact obtain a copy of LEGETT CHRONOLOGY from Alita Sutcliffe.]

You might consider contacting Jack [Arthur Leon "Jack"] Leggett, Route #5, Box 165A, Center, TX, 75935. He has an extensive, computerized data base under the LEGGETT surname. [I had already contacted Jack Leggett in 1992 and have a printout of his line.]

Sincerely,

Jack

[RCL note: Unfortunately, Jack Leggette died 28 June 2002 before I could meet him personally.]

Lewis married Alcey. Alcey was born about 1772 in , , Virginia and died on 15 Apr 1850 in , , Georgia about age 78.

Children from this marriage were:

8         i.  Mathew H. Leggitt (born on 16 Feb 1792 in , , Georgia - died on 14 Jan 1864 in , Macon, Georgia)

         ii.  Margaret Leggitt

        iii.  Lurany Leggitt 18,19 was born about 1805 in Of, Putnam, Georgia and died in Poss Randolph Co., AL. Another name for Lurany was Lurena.

         iv.  Orphan Girl 1 Leggitt was born from 1806 to 1810 in Of, Putnam, Georgia.

          v.  Orphan Girl 2 Leggitt was born from 1806 to 1810 in Of, Putnam, Georgia.


17. Alcey was born about 1772 in , , Virginia and died on 15 Apr 1850 in , , Georgia about age 78.

General Notes: Matthew H. Leggitt's tombstone indicates his mother's name as Anna. However, I have yet to find any other reference to Anna. By coincidence of time and place, it would appear Matthew's mother, or possibly step-mother, would be Alcey. I am therefore including Alcey's notes here. (Recall that prior to Samuel Hunter Leggitt's death in 1986 it was assumed that Matthew H. Leggitt's father was the Lewis married to Anna. That Lewis died in North Carolina in 1792, the same year that our Matthew was born in Georgia. Also recall that in the 1980s Samuel Hunter Leggitt relocated the Leggitt cemetery from near Spalding to its current location in Unadilla. Samuel or someone close to him had the tombstone prepared based on this false information.)

Source: LDS microfilm 175768, page 108.

Alcey being the mother of Mathew Leggitt is assumed from the 1820 Captain Mathew Legget District, Putnam County, GA federal census. Alcey's and Mathew's entries are contiguous.

Alcey is listed as older than 45 with two daughters between 11 and 16. I have included them as orphan girls 1 and 2. See their notes for further assumptions.

The 1821 Georgia Land Lottery shows on page 154 for Putnam County, Legget's District, Lot 56, Section 8, Monroe County.

James F. Smith, The Cherokee Land Lottery, 1832, shows on page 191, Alsey Leget widow, Thompson's Dist. Henry Co. 23rd District, Third Section.

Warren, Alphabetical Index to Georgia's 1832 Gold Lottery, page 134 shows Alsa Leggit, widow, sec. 14. 1 lot 0639

There is an Alcy Legget listed in the 1850 Georgia Mortality Schedule as entry 170. As I understand the mortality schedule, it includes all those who died in the year preceding the federal census. Another version of the mortality schedule (Ingmire) indicates Aley Leggett, age 78, female, b. Va., d. Apr., 1850, widow, Dekalb Co. [b.ca 1772 in Va.]

In May, 1993, I had a phone conversation with third cousin Clewis Matthew Leggitt, of Shalimar, FL. Matt indicated that years ago a professional genealogist had indicated that Alcie and Annie were used interchangeably. This would resolve the current problem of who is Alcie and who is Anna.

However, I posed this question to Myra Vanderpool Gormely, the syndicated genealogist, and she responded with the following:

Roy, while there are many variants of Ann, I do not find Alcey or Alsy among them. Alcey or Alsy are variant spellings of nicknames for Alice and Allison--formerly spelled Aelesia, Aeleis and Alse. Of course, some of the nicknames our ancestors had do not necessarily follow any set "rules." Alsey or Allison may have been her real name, but she may have been called Ann or Annie. Look for her name on land records, particularly as a grantor or signing away her dower's right--that is usually the best source for what her real name was.

I have recently found that Alcy is also a nickname for Elizabeth.

With the aid of Google, I recently searched for "Alice Alcey" OR "Alcey Alice" and found 67 entries. Thus, it is possible that Alcey could be a variation of Alice.

My cousin, Preston Leggitt, feels strongly that Alsey is the daughter of either John or Smithwick Warburton

Alcey married Lewis Leggitt. Lewis was born about 1755 in Probably, , North Carolina, USA and died from 1817 to 1820 in Probably, Putnam, Georgia about age 62.

18. Edmund Allums,15 son of John Allums and Elizabeth Morris, was born about 1765 in Of, Craven, North Carolina and died on an unknown date in Probably, , Georgia.

Property was on the Neuse River. Book 27 Page 109. Property was purchased from Dr. John Smallwood of New Bern, Craven County, North Carolina.

Edmund Allum, Craven County planter sold property in Craven Co., NC on 19 Feb 1791 . Property was on north side of Neuse River and sold to Robert Campbell of Craven County. Sold for £40. Book 29, page 525. This is the same property purchased on 9 January 1789 above. The complete description of the property is one hundred acres more or less lying in Craven County in the State of North Carolina on the north side of Neuse River beginning at a Gum Peters's corner and run north twenty east one hundred pole to John Pilshards line then said Pilshards line north fifty-five west one hundred pole to Joseph Bryans line then with said Bryans line south fifty-five west one hundred and ten pole to said Peters's line, south fifty-five east one hundred and eighty pole to the first station more or less.

(Note for future consideration: While in Craven County on a visit in 1996 I searched through the marriage, wills and deed books for Craven County at the Craven County Court House. Edmund's marriage and the above land transaction were the only records I found involving any variation of Allums. Also, the only Leggett record I found was that of a Thomas Leggett. Apparently some earlier records I had found involving Leggetts in Craven County pertained to records recorded there when Craven was the colonial capitol of North Carolina. Those records were probably moved to Raleigh sometime after 1794 when that city became the capitol of North Carolina.)

Dodd, Precision Indexing Publishers.

There is conflicting information in the sources. The above indicates on page 10, Edmund Allum married Winifred Anderson, 25 Apr 1788, Craven County, NC.

However, the Index of Marriages in the NC Archives indicates Edward Allums married Winifred Anderson, 25 Apr 1788, Craven County, NC, record 028 01 004.

To further complicate this, the Precision Indexing source, also on page 10, indicates a Winifred Allum married Aaron Todd on 10 Jan 1785, Bertie County. A further interesting point is that Precision Indexing indicates a Lewis Leggett married Ann Hawkins 03 May 1780 in Bertie County, NC. However, it is probably that this Lewis Leggett is not our ancestor. Other records indicate a Lewis Leggett died in Bertie County in 1792 and his wife, Ann was appointed as administrator of his estate.

One fact does support that Winifred Anderson was the wife of Edmund Allums. Edmund's daughter Elizabeth did name her second daughter Winifred.

Note for future research: LDS MF 0018617 Craven County Cross Index-to-Wills, Vol A, 1786-1916 contains many references to Anderson wills, including:

Winefred Anderson 1785 Book A page 88
Lias Anderson 1785 "
H. Anderson 1785 "
Jacob Andereson 1785 "
Ann Anderson 1791 258
Francis M. Anderson 1791 "
Sarah Anderson 1776 B page 1
Henry Anderson 1776 B page 1

In the will in book A page 88, Charles Anderson mentions his wife Winefred, his brother Licis, brother H------y, and brother Jacob. Jonas Anderson is the executor.

In the will in book A page 258 William Anerson mentions his wife Ann, daughter Francis Marchust Anderson.

In the will in book B page 1, Jonas Anderson apparently gave a verbal will to Thomas and Charles Anderson. He gave his brother Henry Anderson a piece of land on the Neuse River containing 95 acres. The rest of the estate went to his wife Sarah Anderson.

This places the Anderson family on the Neuse River along with the Allum family.

Winifred married Edmund Allums 15 on 25 Apr 1788 in , Craven, North Carolina. Edmund was born about 1765 in Of, Craven, North Carolina and died on an unknown date in Probably, , Georgia.

20. Isham Dinkins, son of William Dinkins and Nancy Smart, was born in 1800 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina20 and died on 7 Nov 1853 in , Houston, Georgia20 at age 53.

General Notes: Reprint of Official Register of Land Lottery of Georgia 1827, GPC 1967 indicates Isham Denkins of Captain Graggs District in Twiggs County was the fortunate drawer of No. 45, Dt. 24, Sec. 2 in Muscogee County on the 57th day's drawing (May 1, 1827). It is recorded in Land Lottery Register - No. 26. The 1827 drawing was for white males over 18, who had been residents of the state for three years, Revolutionary soldiers, widows of Revolutionary soldiers, orphans, and others, who had not drawn land in previous lotteries, as eligible for participation. The lottery distributed the land in newly created counties of Muscogee, Troup, Coweta, Lee, and Carroll. The land had been ceded by the Indian Springs (Muscogee) Treaty of February 12, 1825. (This new area is about 70 miles WNW of Twigg County.)

Trees, a woman about 35. Maryann, about 16. Harret, about 12. Celia about 18. And March, about 23. Deed book E, page 233.

The Alphabetical Index to Georgia's 1832 Gold Lottery, Heritage Papers, 1981 indicates Isham Dinkins drew District 15, Section 2, Lot 0359. This lottery distributed the land ceded by the Cherokee Indians. The area was in the north west part of Georgia bounded on the south by Carroll and Campbell Counties extending north about 30 miles in the west and 50 miles in the east, the west by the Alabama border, and the east by the Chattahoochee River.

12-23-1834. Isam Dinkins purchased Lot 257 in the 14th District (202 1/2 acres) for $250. (Book F, page 264,)

The 1840 Houston County census indicates Isham Dinkins on page 370 with one male under 5, one male between 30 - 40, two females under 5, three females between 5 and 10, one female between 20 and 30, and five slaves. The only other Dinkins in this census are Samuel and Paul S. Dinkins next to each other on page 378 (they have 26 and 21 slaves.)

The Houston County Superior Court Minutes 1843 - 1851, page 18 indicates Isham Dinkins was charged with Assault with intent to murder 25 April 1844. Unfortunately there was no follow up record on the result of the indictment.

Leonardo Andreas, in his Odds and Ends section mentiones the following: William Isham Kendrick of Greenville Co., married ... Rachel Kendrick, a sister to William Isham Kendrick, m. Dr. Benjamin Few and one of their sons was the late Dr. Few who was president of Duke University. Leonardo recalls these old Kendricks as a child. (that would be in the mid to late 1800s.

Another coincidence is that in the 1826 Georgia Tax Digest, Mathew H. Leggett is listed in Capt. Isham Kendrick's district.

This Kendrick/Dinkins connection is of special interest because of The Dinkins and Springs Families, Captain James Dinkins, 1908. This text indicates a continuing relationship between the Kendrick and Dinkins families.

Isham's date of death has not been specifically established. He is not listed with his wife and children in the 1850 Houston County census. We do know that Daniel Dykes posted a $20,000 administration bond on 8/1/1853 for the administration of Isham Dinkin's goods, chattles, rights, credits, lands, and tenements, late of Houston County.

The returns in the following years mentions children Chas M., John M., Leander J., William, and Matilda. From this it appears James W. is probably William and Dusta M. is Matilda. There is no mention of the young Thomas Dinkins listed in the 1850 census.

For future research, the 1830 Houston Co. census indicates a Manning Dinkins as 1 male 20-30, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 40-50. This could be Ishams brother, sister, and mother.

Also, a Horace R. Dinkins was grantee of 200 acres in Lot 30 in orig. 13th Dist, now 12th District, in Houston County on 1-25-1831. Could he be related to Isham? (Book D, page 562.) Macon County marriage records in Hunting for Bears indicates the marriage of Horace Dinkins and Lucy Ann Smith in 1863.

Nancy Dinkins witnessed a land transaction for Lot 137 in District 14 on 1-28-1836. (Book F, page 721.)

The 1840 Houston County federal census shows Isham Dinkins with 1 m < 5, 1 m 30-40, 2 f < 5, 2 f 5-10, 1 f 30-40, and 5 slaves.

While looking at census entry for his wife I noticed the 1850 Houston County, GA, federal census shows Gilbert D. Leggett as a single 32 year old farmer, born in South Carolina. He is in the lower 14th district as dwelling number 397. Just ten entries away at dwelling 407 is Mrs. Elizabeth Dinkins, wife of Isham Dinkins, and their family. Is it possible that Gilbert knew Isham Dinkins in South Carolina before they migrated west to Georgia?

28. William Capps, son of Southern Capps History and Unknown, was born in , , North Carolina.

General Notes: The 1880 census for William E. Capps indicate his father was born in NC. Thus it is very possibly that that some of the immigrant William Capps's descendants migrated from Virginia through North Carolina where our William E. Capps' father was born and in turn moved on south to the Edgefield District of South Carolina. In the 1790 federal census, there are listed five Capps (or Caps) families: Matthew, William, Barney, Michael, and Greenberry in the South Carolina Edgefield District.

1790:
a. Free white males of 16 years and upward, including heads of families. b. Free white males under 16 years. c. Free white females, incuding heads of families. d. All other free persons. e. Slaves.

Caps, Barney Three males over 15, two males under 16, four females.
Caps, William One male over 15.
Caps, Matthew Two males over 15, two males under 16, six females.
Caps, Michael One male over 15, two males under 16, three females.
Caps, Greenberry One male over 15, one male under 16, three females

(Barney, William, and Matthew are grouped together. Michael and Greenberry are together about 30 entries later.)

1800
CAPS, Matthew: Males: one under 10, one 16-26, one over 45. Females: three under 10, one 26-45, and one over 45.

It is not too far fetched that possibly our William E. Capps is a descendant of this imigrant William Capps through one of early settlers of the Edgefield District. We know that William E. Capps was born in Edgefield District in 1824.

Since our William's father was probably born prior to 1800 (based on Ransom's birth in 1818, his grandfather could have been Barney, Matthew, Michael, or Greenberry. However, based on the fact that only Matthew is still living in Edgefield District, it is possible that one of his two boys could be the father of our William. Matthew was apparently over 45 when the census was taken in 1800. Thus, he would have been born prior to 1755.

There is no positive proof that Ransom, William, and Martha Ann are siblings. However, Barbara Trammell told me the following in a letter dated 22 September 1992:

"Many years ago I made contact with a lady in Cleveland Co., AR who states that Martha Ann Capps was William E.'s sister, and in the 1850 Bradley Co., AR census there is Ransom W. living with Martha Ann and her family. It all ties in, all three born in SC, all three living in Alabama, and all three coming to Bradley Co., AR at the same time."

There is a family story told to me by an unrelated Capps acquaintance that the name began as Bonnet (sp?) which is French for hat, and they Anglicized it to Capp or Capps.

Interestingly, both my William Erwin Capps and Martha Ann Capps Wright named sons William. My William named his first son William D. and Martha Ann named her second son William. Based on this I am going to assume that Ransom, William, and Martha Ann are his children.

14       ii.  William Erwin Capps 14 (born on 11 Feb 1824 in , Edgefield Dist., South Carolina - died on 21 Nov 1898 in , , Arkansas)

        iii.  Martha Ann Capps 17 was born about 1826 in , , South Carolina.17


29. Mother was born in , , South Carolina.

General Notes: The 1880 census for her son indicates she was born in SC.

Mother married William Capps. William was born in , , North Carolina.

30. Daniel McCaskill,14 son of Daniel Hugh McCaskill and Margaret Mc Intosh, was born in 1803 in Chesterfield, Chesterfield, South Carolina14 and died in 184114 at age 38.

General Notes: In a letter from Olive McCaskill Bell to Barbara Trammell in 1985, she states that Dixie McCaskill found no fewer than 60 Daniel McCaskills who have lived in America at one time or another, plus three Dans and a Dannie! It may never be determined who our Daniel McCaskill's parents are. However, there is no doubt in this author's mind that we share the common ancestry documented here.

Birth: 1988 MS IGI.

Death: Family group sheet from Barbara Trammell, Pocatello, ID, 1991.

Text provided by Mrs. O. A. McCaskill, Irmo, SC: This family descended from either Finley (first immigration group - 1770) or from John or Alexander (second immigration group - 1803) McCaskill.

After reading that Daniel might descend from John or Alexander, I read that section of The MacAskill/McCaskill text and immediately saw a lot of commonality. The John in Chapter Four had a son named Hugh. My Daniel named his first son Hugh and another John. That Hugh married Margaret McIntosh about 1803. While my Daniel did not name any of his girls Margaret, his son Hugh and his daughter Elizabeth (my 2great grandmother) each named a daughter Margaret. (In fact, my grandmother and sister are also named Margaret.)

Finally, on page 118, about 1825 Hugh and Margaret moved from Chesterfield to Rankin County, MS. In 1829 they are living in Simpson County, MS. This is almost identical to the migration path you mentioned about my Daniel. On page 168 the text says this family moved a lot - to Miss. by 1824; to Ala. by 1830; back to Miss. by 1846 where they settled in Laudendale Co., not too far from Kemper Co.where Kenneth McCaskill settled in 1810.

Unfortunately, on page 118 the text does not list Daniel as Hugh's and Margaret's first child. It lists the other six beginning with Catherine born 1804. It is very possible that when Hugh and Margaret with their family removed to Rankin County, MS in the early 1820s, our Daniel had already married and was not recognized as still a child of their family (see * below.) In any case, our Daniel must be closely related and share common ancestry. Until proven otherwise, I am listing Hugh McCaskill and Margaret McIntosh as the parents of our Daniel.

* The 1816 Greene County, MS census (see father's notes) lists Daniel McCaskill 1-5-1-2-0-0-0-9. This means Daniel had five male and two female children in 1816. Our Daniel would have been about 13 at this time and could be the first of the seven children.

Daniel's son Hugh's son James' biography says Hugh came with his parents to Arkansas from Mississippi in 1839. and to Bradley County. The biography also says that Daniel died in 1841. That conflicts with the stated birthdate of Daniel's youngest son Christopher who was born in 1846.

Note for future research: There are about ten McCaskills buried in three different cemeteries in Rankin County, Mississippi. All but one were born after 1870 (one in 1844).

Daniel married Catherine Rutha Cassierue Graham.14 Catherine was born in 1811 in , , Georgia.14

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Hugh Graham McCaskill 14 was born in 1824 in , Rankin, Mississippi14 and died on 16 Nov 188814 at age 64.

         ii.  Caroline McCaskill was born about 1826 in , Simpson, Mississippi and died about 1862 in , Fulton, Arkansas about age 36.

        iii.  William S. D. McCaskill was born in 1827 in , Rankin, Mississippi.

         iv.  John McCaskill 14 was born in 1830 in , , Mississippi.14

         vi.  Sarah McCaskill was born about 1839 in , , Mississippi.

        vii.  Columbus McCaskill 14 was born in 1846 in , , Alabama.14


31. Catherine Rutha Cassierue Graham,14 daughter of Unknown and Unknown, was born in 1811 in , , Georgia.14

General Notes: 1988 MS IGI lists name as C. Ruth Cassierue GRAHAM.

Note for future research: Since she named her second son William, there is a possibility that her father was William. In the 1830 Georgia census, there is a William in Henry County (216) and a William P. in Clark County (323). In the 1790 reconstructed census for Georgia, there is a Wm. Graham as a grantee in Elbert County. In 1820 there is a William Graham in Wilkes County.

See husband Daniel Jaggers notes. There is an indication they were married before 23 SEP 1846.

The 1850 Federal Census for Smith, Bradley County, Arkansas lists Rutha Jagguars, age 40, born in Georgia. Her daughters Elizabeth D 14 and Sarah L 11 are enumerated there also. There is no mention of Daniel.

According to Barbara Trammell, she is listed under Rutha Jaggars in the 1860 Bradley Co, AR census, house 252, family 252. She is 49 years old married 2nd to Daniel Jaggars, 68, b. So. Car. with her is her daughter, Sarah Mc Caskill, 21 yrs who is married to William F. Hunter, 29 yrs b So Car and their baby son Benjamin D. Hunter 8/12 months.

See the notes for her apparent son Columbus. It is probable that her name really just Rutha Graham.

Catherine married Daniel McCaskill.14 Daniel was born in 1803 in Chesterfield, Chesterfield, South Carolina14 and died in 184114 at age 38.

Catherine next married Daniel Duncan Jaggers 22 about 1846 in , Bradley, Arkansas.15 Daniel was born about 1792 in , Chester, South Carolina.

This is what I have on my Asa Alums:
I believe, but have not proven he was the son of John Alums of Rowan Co, NC.
John and sons John Jr, Edmond and Asa, moved to Washington Co, GA, before 1805.
Fact: In the 1805 GA land lottery were Edmond, Asa, John Sr and John Jr of Washington Co.
Asa ( I am not sure of is wife's name) had three children known to me.
Briggs b.abt 1800, Martha, b.04 Jan 1802, in Washington Co, GA and 29 Mar 1814, b 29 Mar 1814, GA. Probably Washington Co.

Briggs m. Martha Crowder, 12 Mar 1824, in Putnam Co, GA.
Martha and Elizabeth married brothers. Martha to John G. Beasley and Elizabeth to William M. Beasley. They lived in Barbour Co, AL, which is near Dale Co.
I have their lines down, but have not done extensive research on the Alums family.

10) William Dinkins memorial for 100a in High Hills of Santee in Craven County bounded by lands of Henry Potts, Isaac Hilton, and vacant lands, surveyed 2 June and grtd. 5 Mar 1770. Return made by Isham Moore. (I happen to know that Isham Moore was a native of Northampton Co., NC)

RCL Note: It is not poslitive that all of the above notes apply to this William Dinkins. Some may apply to his father William Sr. William Sr. also had a cousin named William Dinkins, son of John.

The 1790 federal census for Claremont County (now Sumter County), Camden District, South Carolina lists William Dinkins with one male 16 or over, one male under 16, 4 females, and 16 slaves. (There is also a John Dinkins with 1-2-2-2.)

William Wright v. McRa & Cantey. Bill and answer read. Lewis Dinkins sworn saith that he was a witness to the bill of sale from William Dinkins to William Wright, he saw it executed. In March 1792 he was present with Wm. Dinkins and Wm. Wright, they were conversing together and thought it right to make over to the complt., in trust for his children, the eleven Negroes mentioned in the Bill of Sale. They were delivered to him, in trust, for the following persons, Asa, Samuel and Sarah Dinkins, children of William Dinkins by his first wife. This deponent asked W. Dinkins if he was in debt, he said he owed £150 or £200. The complt. took all the Negroes except three which were left for the support of Samuel Dinkins; Asa had his part delivered to him and kept them. This transaction happened at the house of William Dinkins. He had nine other Negroes.

Ely Freeman sworn, saith he knew all the Negroes mentioned in the Bill of Sale. He was present when W. Dinkins married his second wife; the Bill of Sale was executed shortly after; all the Negroes remained in his possession, Dave he sold to Dubose. Asa Dinkins had possession of Will, Isham and Lewis. Ben, Bob and Jim remained in possession of W. Dinkins. Cloe was with the complt.; he did not believe at that time that Wm. Dinkins was in debt any great amount. He owed this deponent in 1793. All the Negroes worked on Capt. Dubose's plantation, it was generally supposed that the Negroes were Wm. Dinkins'; the Bill of Sale was not much known. Mr. Bracey had a Bill of Sale of Ben from W. Dinkins who owed to Mr. Bracey. Ben was also mortgaged to Mr. Guignard. Another Negroe (Peter) was sold to Mr. Brown, at same time with Dave. Neither of Asa Dinkins' Negroes worked in the crop of 1793, nor of Sarah's portion. Mr. Wright had Sarah's proportion of the Negroes.

Sumter County Conveyances AA, page 115 indicates William Dinkins conveyed all of his real and personal property to his wife Nancy Dinkins on 1 June 1803. Signed in the presence of James Howard and Alexander Smart.

Sumter County Conveyances CC, page 529 indicates William and Nancy Dinkins sold their 265 acre plantations to Captain James R. Spann, United States Army for $600 on 27 January 1812.

Andrea states on page 42 that William Dinkins and his second wife, Nancy Smart and children moved to the western lands in 1812 from Sumter Co.

Also, Sumter County was previously referred to as Claremont County.

RCL note: Since of William's male children, only Asa had children (who are well documented), it is logical to eliminate this William as the possible grandfather of Isham Dinkins b. 1800-1808. (However, I did not count on finding a second family for William that would cover the same time period as Asa's family.)

On Andrea page 45,4-i, there is the following statement: The Dinkins papers state that William Dinkins had a number of children by his second wife, Nancy Smart... These moved to one of the western states... See #4-h where William Dinkins and wife, Nancy Dinkins, sell all remaining lands in Sumter Co. 27 January 1812... William Dinkins does not show again in Sumter Co., S.C.

4-h William Dinkins with dower by his wife, Nancy Dinkins (see 4-e) a deed sg. 27 Jan. 1812... Confirmation to Capt. John R. Spann of the U.S. Army a deed for 265a land according to a plat made 7 Jan. 1812 by Hastin Jennings... land adjacent to Samuel Neilson... J.R. Spann... Gen. Thomas Sumter... Mr. Murray's land / Wit. James G. Spann, Peter Keen M.D. & John Horan J.P.

(4-e abstracts will of Alexander Smart, proved 7 Jan 1809) where Nancy Dinkins is listed as his first child. It also indicates William Dinkins and Nancy Smart were married a few days before 16th March 1792.)

The Sumter County court records indicate that Asa Dinkins died intestate in 1819 and that his father was William Dinkins and he had moved to Georgia.

This is interesting because Historical Sketches of Sumter County, Volume II, 1981, by Cassie Nicholes, page 105, says After the death of Sarah, he married Nancy Smart and moved to Georgia. However, when he died February 26, 1818, he was buried in the Wright-Dinkins-Atkinson Cemetery beside his first wife who died in 1791.

The October 30, 1821 Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper indicated William Dinkins had a letter remaining in the Post-Office at Marion, Georgia, September 30, 1821.

The April 20, 1822 issue indicated "Will be sold, on the 1st Tuesday in June next, in the town of Marion, Twiggs County... the following property, vis: ... One negro boy about 15 years old ... taken as the property of William Dinkins, to satisfy a fi fa in favor of John Martin vs. Washington Dinkins and William Dinkins. (See notes for Horace R. Dinkins for further information on George Washington Dinkins.)

In 1997 I checked the deed records for both Twiggs and Jones Counties and did not find any Dinkins records.



!!!MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THIS CAVEAT WHEN READING THIS GENEALOGY!!!

Since I cannot specifically find Isham Dinkins parents, for the present I am going to connect him to William Dinkins and Nancy Smart. In addition, I am also going to add the other unidentified Dinkins in Houston County, GA found there in various records covering the 1820-1840 time period. Specifically, I am adding Charles M., Horace R. and Manning Dinkins as brothers to Isham. There is absolutely nothing other than circumstantial evidence to support this assumption. The 1830 Georgia federal census lists Horace R., Isham, and Manning Dinkins on pages 268, 275, and 271 respectively in Houston County. The only other listing is for Frederick Denkin in Tattnall County. The 1820 Georgia census lists only a Horace Dinkins in Baldwin County, next to Putnam County where Matthew H. Leggitt and Edmund Allums resided.

!!!MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THIS CAVEAT WHEN READING THIS GENEALOGY!!!

Historical Sketches of Sumter County lends some support to this. That text says that after the death of Sarah, William married Nancy Smart and moved to Georgia. However, when he died February 26, 1818, he was buried in the Wright-Dinkins-Atkinson Cemetery beside his first wife who died in 1791.

William married Sarah Wright on 14 Jun 1768. Sarah was born on 21 Aug 1750 in , Craven, South Carolina and died on 4 Apr 1791 in , Sumter, South Carolina at age 40.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Samuel Dinkins 25,26 was born on 17 Mar 1769 and died on 12 Sep 1825 at age 56.

         ii.  Asa Dinkins 26 was born on 1 Aug 1771 in , Sumter, South Carolina and died on 15 Nov 1819 at age 48.

        iii.  William Dinkins was born on 3 Jan 1774 and died on 20 Apr 1774.

         iv.  Wright P. Dinkins was born on 12 May 1777 and died on 20 Mar 1778.

          v.  Sarah Dinkins 26 was born on 6 Nov 1780 and died on 9 Sep 1800 at age 19.

William next married Nancy Smart on 25 Mar 1792 in Probably, Sumter, South Carolina. Nancy was born about 1771 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Manning Dinkins was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

         ii.  Charles M. Dinkins was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

        iii.  Horace R. Dinkins was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

20       iv.  Isham Dinkins (born in 1800 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina - died on 7 Nov 1853 in , Houston, Georgia)


41. Nancy Smart, daughter of Alexander Smart and Leah, was born about 1771 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

General Notes: Nancy Dinkins witnessed a land transaction for Lot 137 in District 14 on 1-28-1836. (Book F, page 721.) This is quite near where Isham Dinkins bought and sold Lot 134 in 1829/1834 and witnessed the sale of Lot 139 in 1833.

Nancy married William Dinkins 25,26 on 25 Mar 1792 in Probably, Sumter, South Carolina. William was born on 18 May 1746 in , Craven, South Carolina and died on 26 Feb 1818 in , Camden Dist., South Carolina at age 71.

42. William P. Brown died after 8 May 1827 in Of, Baldwin, Georgia.

General Notes: The 1790 federal census for Claremont County (now Sumter County), Camden District, South Carolina lists William Powell Brown with 3 males 16 or over, 1 male under 16, 4 females, and 5 slaves. This is especially meaningful because his daughter Elizabeth's assumed father-in-law William Dinkins is also listed in this same census.

William P. Brown appears in the 1820 Baldwin County, GA census. His listing has three males older than 45, one female between 16 and 25, and one female over 45.

It is interesting that Horrace Dinkins appears just four entries below him. Uriah Brown is listed immediately above William P. Brown.

The December 17, 1822 issue of The Georia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper contains the following article:

At the house of the subscriber, 5 miles below Milledgeville, on Saturday the 11th of January next, will be hired until the 1st day of January, 1824, all the negroes belonging to the estate of John Guirey, deceased...(Signed) William P. Brown, Guardian for the orphans of said deceased.

See his daughter's notes for mention of his will.

William married Mary. Mary was born about Jun 1760 and died on 31 Oct 1826 in , Baldwin, Georgia about age 66.

The child from this marriage was:

21        i.  Elizabeth Brown (born about 1823 in Of, Baldwin, Georgia - died before 5 Apr 1875 in , Macon, Georgia)


43. Mary was born about Jun 1760 and died on 31 Oct 1826 in , Baldwin, Georgia about age 66.

General Notes: The November 14, 1826 issue of The Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper contains the following announcement:

Died. -- In this county (Baldwin) on Tuesday morning the 31st October, after an illness of 22 days...Mrs. Mary Brown, consort of William P. Brown, ages 66 years and 4 months. She left a disconsolate husband and 6 children...She was for 30 years an acceptable member of the Methodist Church...

Mary married William P. Brown. William died after 8 May 1827 in Of, Baldwin, Georgia.

48. John Hussey, son of John Hussey and Margaret Record, was born about 1725 of Kennet, Chester, Pennsylvania and died on 7 Feb 1781 in New Garden Mm, Guilford, North Carolina about age 56.

General Notes: In Ancestors and Descendants of of Jehu Cox, by Wayne D. Stout, Stout explains in 1745 in Warrington, York County, Pennsylvania, a live Quaker community, was the home of the Cox, Hussey, and Garretson families. These clans had stuck together for generations. Many inter-marriages had cemented the tribe into a solid unit. In about 1755 the three families moved to Cane Creek, Orange County, North Carolina, a distance of 300 miles. Cane Creek was a real Mecca for the Society of Friends. These Quakers hoped to establish a new Zion amongst the slave holders of the South. A Quaker Meeting was organized and a progressive community sprang into existence. Like the Mormons in Jackson County, the Quakers soon found themselves surrounded by intolerant neighbors. The slaveholders looked with suspicion on these strange people whose religion opposed slavery. Suspicion led to antagonism and conflicts. Finally, persecution became so violent the Quakers abandoned Cane Creek and settled in eastern Tennessee, Kentucky, and western Virginia.

However, from the Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, we know our line moved from the Cane Creek MM to the New Garden MM in 1772 where John died in 1781. His son Jediah moved the line to Back Creek MM, Randolph County, in 1796 It was his grandson Thomas (son of Jediah) who took our line from Randolph County, North Carolina, to the White Lick MM in Morgan County, Indiana, in 1832

LDS Microfilm 1561672 confirms the lineage from John HUSSEY of Dorking, England to the children of this union. This film is also the source of the spouses of most of these children.

The text contained on the microfilm is an oasis of information. The title is: Descendants of HUNT WOOLMAN BORTON BEALS MILLS HUSSEY JESSUP SMALL CHIPMAN SHIELDS by Edna Harvey Jospeh et al.

In July 1993 I found something very interesting about this John Hussey. He served as a private in the Revolutionary War. This seems totally inconsistent with his obvious status as a Quaker. This information is contained in The Roster of Texas Daughters Revolutionary Ancestors, 1976. I will quote the complete entry since I will use this information as the source for his birth and other information pertaining to the family.

The MEMBERS: entry indicates these three individuals have used this John Hussey as their patiot, justifying their acceptance into the Daughters of the American Revolution.

I personally am not comfortable with the location of John Hussey's birth indicated here. His parents were married at the Warrington MM in York County, Pennsylvania. Also, the Warrington Quakers arrived in Guilford County beginning in 1750. The Nantucket Quakers did not arrive until about 1771.

John married Mary Jessop on 7 May 1766 in , Guilford, North Carolina. Mary was born on 5 Dec 1740 in , Guilford, North Carolina and died in 1821 at age 81.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Thomas Hussey was born on 21 May 1767 in , Guilford, North Carolina.

         ii.  John Hussey was born on 21 May 1767 in New Garden Mm, Guilford, North Carolina and died on 17 May 1816 in , Guilford, North Carolina at age 48.

       xiii.  Joseph Hussey was born on 4 Jun 1781 in New Garden, Guilford, North Carolina and died on 5 Oct 1814 at age 33.


49. Mary Jessop, daughter of Thomas Jessop and Sarah Small, was born on 5 Dec 1740 in , Guilford, North Carolina and died in 1821 at age 81.

General Notes: Source: The NC IGI list Mary Jessop and John Hussey as the parents of many of the same children that the New Garden (NC) Monthly Meeting list with parents of John and Mary Hussey. Therefore the name of Mary Jessop is confirmed.

Source: Vena Wilson (MF#0854151).

Mrs. Wilson uses Mary Jessop Hussey as the basis for DAR membership for Cynthia Ann Hunt Wilson. "The said Mary Jessup Hussey is the ancestor who assisted in establishing American independence, by furnishing supplies to the malitia of South Carolina, Virginia, and North Carolina. Reference: Military record Vol. A, p.282. Accounts of the U.S. with North Carolina War of the Revolution.
This Vol. is in N. Car. Historical Commission, Raleigh, N.C."

Mrs. Wilson indicates this is a "supplimental line". She said you have the same Number that you received with your first D.A.R papers. Any other lines you may have are called supplimental. Apparently Cynthia Ann Hunt Willson's DAR Lineage papers trace through her father's family the Hunts. Her National Number D.A.R. number 270702.

Mary married John Hussey on 7 May 1766 in , Guilford, North Carolina. John was born about 1725 of Kennet, Chester, Pennsylvania and died on 7 Feb 1781 in New Garden Mm, Guilford, North Carolina about age 56.

50. Jesse Henley, son of John Henley and Isabell Newby, was born in 1725 in Of, Randolph, North Carolina and died on 12 Jul 1801 at age 76.

Hey cousin

Nixon Henley was my great great great grandfather. I'm descended through his son Thomas Bogue Henley (m Ruth (Fairfax) Montgomery), to their son Lindley Hoag Henley (m. Unity Ursula Shirley), to their son Murray Jay Henley (m. Louisa Battle Winston), to their daughter Marion Winston Henley (my mom).

I assume that you are aware of "The Saga of the Family and Descendants of David Vestal Henley and Eleanor Lassiter of Randolph County, North Carolina" by Eleanor Parker Bell. That is where I learned most of my Henley line (augmented by some deductions based upon Hinshaw). It is out of print, and the author passed away last year, so I have not been able to locate a copy for myself, but there must be a few out there. Until I began this research this year, my family knew nothing of its heritage beyond my great grandfather Lindley Henley (the Quaker roots were a seldom-heard and little-acknowledged rumor), so it was a revelation to stumble upon a copy of Ms. Bell's book in the Library of Congress. I wish I could see her notes, as my great grandmother's (Ruth Fairfax Montgomery) life and death have remained an enduring mystery.

You have added several heretofore unknown links to the Crew line, and I thank you. This is the mythical "Cherokee Princess" part of the family line. John Crew undertook missionary exploration in the Appalachian Mountain region with another man named (as I recall) John Elmore. That man married an Indian woman named (again, as I recall) An-Nah Wah-kah, and they had several children that were accepted by the Quaker community upon their return. Family legend has it that Ann Crew was actually a daughter of John Elmore and his Indian bride, named Sarah Ann Elmore, and that she was adopted by John Crew upon the death of his friend. Ms. Bell states that she followed up on all known children of the Elmores, and that there is no basis for this story. I think all pioneer families from the southeast have a "Cherokee Princess" story tucked away somewhere - a genealogical version of an urban myth, I guess. A friend tells me that, in Oklahoma, it is not uncommon to see T-shirts that read "Congratulations on your Ancestor who was an Indian Princess", so I guess there's some basis in that classification.

Anyway, I've gotten long-winded. My program has no problem with Gedcom files, and I'd be delighted to see what you have. I'll see if I can isolate the relevant part of my database so that I can send it to you in gedcom. I have done a fair amount of reconstruction on the Nixon, Bogue, Mayo, and other lines from Hinshaw and from LDS IGI. I'd love to know how it was that two groups arrived independently in different parts of the U.S., with Nixons, Husseys, Milhouses, et. al. I'm confident that we can clear that up somehow. I have the N.C. Nixons back to England through Phineas to Zachariah b 1684 d 1739 (m Elizabeth Symons b~1690 d 1725) to Zachariah d 1691 (m Elizabeth Page) to Zachariah of Nottingham, England, all based upon Hinshaw's abstracts.

I'll send you what I have as soon as I can. I'm sure we'll find a connection to R.M. Nixon if we can take his Nixon line back to England/U.K.
as well.

Thanks for the followup, and in advance for the file. I've never met a cousin electronically before ;)

This Indian Princess story could possibly explain the story that my grandmother Inez Hussey Leggitt told about us having Indian blood. Her father, Jediah Clark Hussey was Ann Crew's great grandson and he could have easily told his granddaughter this story.

56. Southern Capps History .

General Notes:

Ancestor of William Erwin Capps

Based on the coincidence of location and naming of children by William Erwin Capps and Martha Ann Capps Wright, I have assumed their father was named William Capps.

We also know that in the late 1700's and early 1800's there were Capps (or Caps) named Barney, Greenberry, Matthew, Michael and William living in the Edgefield District of South Carolina where our William Erwin was born. Since Ransom was born in 1818, William Erwin, in 1824, and Martha in 1826, their father would probably have been born in the 1790s.

Let's look at each of the five possible ancestors:

Barney Capps

Greenberry Capps

Greenberry Capps was born about 1750. He stated on his Rev War application he thought he was born in Chatham Co NC. He had three son, none of which were named Ransom or William. One son, Stanmore, was born in Edgfield, SC in 1810.

Matthew Capps

Michael Capps

William Capps

William Capps Sr. served in the American Revolution, was born in Chatham County, NC on 10-16-1764 and after the war he moved to South Carolina and lived in Edgefield and Greenville Counties. He brought his family to Buncombe County after 1800. This William had a son named William born in 1793. However his three children are clearly identified as William, Arthur, and Phisby. While this William was born in 1823, his children do not include a Ransom or Martha.

Early Capps History

A history of colonial Virginia : the first permanent colony in America : to which is added the genealogy of the several shires, on page 110 indicates that William Capps was one of those sent under the company charters in 1609-1615.

http://www.genealogical-gleanings.com/Jamestown.htm contains a very interesting early history of Jamestown. It details our William Capps and his wife Catherine Jernegan's voyage from England, ship wreck in Bermuda, arrival in Jamestown in 1610, and some of William's positions in the colony government. It also tells of Catherine's death and that William's mother Cicely had joined him there.

Wikipedia: The term "'Ancient planter'" is applied to anyone who migrated to the Plantation of Virginia , before 1616 , paid their passage, survived the Jamestown massacre of 1622 and survived for three years. They received the first land grants in Virginia? William Capps is listed as an Ancient Planter.

The Genealogy.com Capps message board contains this response to the question of William Capps being aboard the Sea Venture when it was wrecked on the shores of Bermuda: On 31 March 1623, Capps wrote a letter to John Farrar in England in which he stated: "For I remember when I was in the voyage with Sir Thomas Gates and Sir George Somers . . ." Many researchers have interpreted this statement by Capps as proof that he was indeed aboard the SV; however, others (including myself) note that he used the word "voyage" and not "ship." While both Gates and Somers were aboard the SV, Gates was the captain of the entire fleet of nine (?) ships that left England together. I cannot help but wonder why Capps, if he had been on the SV, did not say he was on the ship with Gates. To say he was on the voyage indicates, to me at least, that he could possibly have been on one of the other ships.

At any rate, Capps either arrived at Jamestown in 1609 on one of the other ships in the fleet, or in 1610 with Gates, Somers and the SV passengers from Bermuda.

In August 2006 Ron Capps has posted a family group sheet at http://www.rootsweb.com/~usfgs/virginia/c/cappes_wm.html indicating the immigrant William Cappes, the Ancient Planter, was born about 1575 in Norfolk, England and died in Virginia after 1634. Ron lists this William's parents as William Cappes and Cicily Benit. The immigrant William married Catherine Jernegan 11 December 1596 in Norwich, Norfolk, England. She was born about 1575 in Somerleton, Suffolk, England. She died before 1623 in Virginia. Her father was Walter Jernegan.Ron lists their children as Henry, Frances, Willoughby, Anne, and William. This son William Capps was born about 1612-18 in Virginia and died there in 1666. His wife was Margaret Woodhouse.

Ron lists documentation as: 1. The Visitations of Norfolk 1568, 1589, and 1613. 2. "Capps Family History," Michael Capps, diadem@firstnetva.com, and 3. that William Capps was an "Ancient Planter" of Virginia.

Last updated in December 2006, Joe W. Stout, jwstout@charter.net, posted a genealogy showing William Capps and Margaret Woodhouse having four children, Jane born 1647, William III born 1650, Richard born 1650, and Henry born 1652 in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia. (Joe's line apparently descends through Henry.)

At http://robert.infusion-technologies.com/docs/cavaliers.pdf, there is some quotes from Cavaliers And Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, Volume I 1623-66 that describe lands owned by William, the Ancient Planter and his sons William, Richard, and Henry. It also mentions that William Capps, "Ancient Planter" represented Kicotan in the Assembly of 1619 and was a member of the Council in 1627.

Capps Family History
1. William CAPPS born about 1575, England, married 11-Dec-1596, in Norwich, Norfolk, England, 11-Dec-1596, Saint Michael At Plea, Catharine JERNAGIN, born England, died before Feb-1623, Elizabeth City, VA (Modern-day Hampton). William died 1629-1653, Virgina.
----- William CAPPS arrived in Virginia in 1609-1610 and settled at Kecoughtan on the west side of the Hampton River. This site is in present-day Hampton, VA and is on the opposite side of the Hampton River from the grounds of Hampton Institute. There is a street called "Capps Quarters <http://www.geocities.com/mpdc100/capps/capps_quarters.jpg>" in this area that is almost certainly part of William Capps' original tract of land. At one time, a Virginia Historical marker was posted in this area which read, in part: "This point, patented by William Capps about 1634, was known for a century as Capps Point." The marker is no longer there.
----- Kecoughtan had originally been the site of an Indian village which on 1-May-1607 had some 18 houses of twigs and bark and 20 fighting men. Indians and whites had lived together at this site for the first years of the Colony, but in summer 1610 Sir Thomas Gates drove the Kecoughtan Indians from the area in retaliation of the killing of a settler at Fort Algernourne (Old Point Comfort). The settlement grew slowly as a report of John Rolfe in 1616 shows: "At Keqoughtan, being not farr from the mouth of the river, thirty-seven miles below James Towne on the same side, are twenty [persons] whereof eleven are Farmors."
----- In May-1616 only 350 of all persons who had come to Virginia remained there - the rest having died or given up and returned to England. Three years later in 1619 the first general division of land in Virginia occurred. Those settlers having arrived before 1616 and having three years residence, termed "ancient planters," were entitled to 100 acres. John Rolfe described the situation in Jan-1620 in glowing terms: "All the ancient planters being sett free have chosen places for their dividendes according to the commission, Which giveth all greate content, for knowing their owne landes, they strive and are prepared to build houses & cleere their groundes ready to plant, which giveth ... [them] greate incouragement, and the greatest hope to make the Colony florrish that ever yet happened to them."
----- That same year as the land division, the Colony's Governor issued a call for the first representative legislative assembly in America which convened at Jamestown on 30-Jul-1619 and remained in session until 4-Aug-1619. Twenty-two Burgesses met representing the 11 major settlements in Virginia. The Kecoughtan settlement was represented by Capt William Tucker and William CAPPS. A memorial church built on the foundations of the church in which the Assembly met exists at the Jamestown National Park Service site on Jamestown Island, Virginia. A monument bearing the names of the Burgesses is located near within the confines of the newly rediscovered original Jamestown fort.
----- It was apparently at their urging that the first House of Burgesses was asked "to change the savage name of Kiccowtan, and to give that Incorporation a new name." The new name selected was Elizabeth City after the daughter of King James. In Dec-1619 the population of Virginia was about 900 out of a total immigration of 1440.
----- In 1627, William CAPPS was appointed a member of the Council by the Crown upon the recommendation of the Governor. The Councilors were the Governor's advisers in executive matters and constituted the supreme court of the Virginia. They also held legislative functions as members of the upper house of the Virginia Assembly, corresponding somewhat to our senate.
----- Two years later William CAPPS asked leave of the Governor to depart the colony on the King's affairs, and when permission was refused, departed any way. In 1630 he returned with the King's letter of instructions to the Council.

2. i William CAPPS born 1612 or 1618.
Second Generation
2. William CAPPS (1.William1) born 1612 or 1618, Virginia, married Margaret WOODHOUSE. William died 1666, Virginia. In 1645 he was a carpenter by trade. In 1649 he acquired 150 acres on Strattors Creek, Lynnhaven Parish. In 1652 he acquired 100 acres more. Land Grant Book 1-890 in 1637 refers to "Hampton River, commonly called Capps." The creek northeast of the mouth of Tanners Creek (now Lafayette River in Norfolk, VA) was called Capps Creek.
Margaret: Margaret seems to have been of the WOODHOUSE family, but no positive proof has been found that this is her correct last name. [Source of information is the "Couper-Capps Genealogy."]

In 1698 he was sued by James Sherwood and his wife, Grace, for his accusation in the famous witchcraft trial.

http://genealogical-gleanings.com/Jamestown.htm has an article entitled Our Ancestors in Jamestown, Virginia that contains the following:

In 1610, William Capps and his wife, Catherine Jernegan reached Jamestown. William located in Kegoughtan, present Hampton County. By 1619, Capps was a member of the first House of Burgesses and in 1623 he was on the Royal Council for the Governor. In 1612, William brought his mother, Cicely Brent or Grint to Jamestown after the death of her husband, William's father. Cicely died in Jamestown in 1640. William's will was made in Long Stratton, present Norfolk County in 1617. His wife, Catherine is listed among the dead in 1623. William died in 1629-37.

William's ship, the Sea Venture had sailed from England along with nine other ships. The Sea Venture, the lead ship, was shipwrecked in Bermuda in 1609 after having been caught in a hurricane. It is the Sea Venture and the survival of the ship's passengers that was the basis for Shakespeare's play, The Tempest, written in 1619. The Sea Venture carried many of the proposed leaders of the colony including Sir Thomas Gates and Sir George Somers. John Rolfe and his wife, Sarah, were also on the Sea Venture. The survivors of the shipwreck were stranded in Bermuda for months. During this time, Sarah Rolfe gave birth to a daughter, Bermuda, but both died soon thereafter. The remainder of the 9 ships arrived in Jamestown in August of 1609 filled with injured or sick passengers. One ship was even said to carry the plague. Four Hundred extra mouths to feed was all the ships carried to Jamestown.
Meanwhile, in Bermuda, one of the passengers of the Sea Venture, John Rolfe, built two ships from the wreckage of the ship Sea Venture. and the stranded passengers finally reached Jamestown 24 May 1610, including William Capps and his family. They were met by ghostly, gaunt figures, the 60 survivors of the winter's "Starving Time", 90% of the colony having perished. There was no food, no crops, no tools, no housing. Those left alive in Jamestown gathered a few belongings and put them on the ships and headed downriver, abandoning Jamestown. They were only ten miles from Jamestown when they met a boat telling them that the new governor of Virginia, Lord Delaware, was on his way with ships of supplies and 150 new colonists.

60. Daniel Hugh McCaskill,14 son of John McCaskill and Unknown, was born about 1780 in Probably, Isle Of Skye, Scotland14 and died in Probably, Simpson, Mississippi.14

General Notes: There appears to be a running controversy as to the name of the father and husband of this family. From the following the reader will see there is convincing evidence that this individual was named both Hugh and Daniel. There are testimonials by two of his grandsons that clearly indicate their grandfather was named Hugh. However, all history and civil documents indicate his name was Daniel. Therefore, for this genealogy, his name will be designated as Daniel Hugh McCaskill.

(In the course of previous genealogical research we have found ancestors who had official records recorded under different names. Roy Leggitt's great grandfather Jediah Clark Hussey has census records under both Jediah Hussey and Clark Hussey. Darlene Leggitt's grandfather Sidney Phelps Osborne used Sidney in most records but was known as Phelps. Her second great grandfather William Sidney Barton has census and land records under both William and Sidney Barton.)

The MacAskill/McCaskill text says Hugh was a soldier in War of 1812 according to his grandson James Lufkin McCaskill. Hugh and Margaret lived in Chesterfield Co., SC from ca 1804 to ca 1825 when they moved with their children to Miss., settling first in Rankin Co. In 1829, they were living in Simpson Co. All information on this line was submitted by Olive McCaskill Bell of Albuquerque, NM. (See ** below: Daniel McCaskill may have been in MS as early as 1816.)

Lowrey & McCardle in "History of Mississippi" (1891) tell us that Greene County was named in honor of Major General Nathaniel Greene, of Revolutionary fame, and was established December 9, 1811. This county borders on the Alabama line. Among its first settlers were Laughlin McKay and John McRae, both of whom were members of the Constitutional Convention of 1817; the McDuffeys, McCaskill's, McPherson's, McLeod's, Walter Denny, McInnis, Laughlin McKay, the Breland's, Moody's, Smith's, Kittrell's, Avera's and Brewer's.

(According to a search of the Ancestry.com War of 1812 Service Records, only three McCaskills served during the War of 1812:

Surname Given Name Middle Initial Company Unit Rank - Induction Rank - Discharge Misc Roll Box Roll Exct Roll Rec
MCCASKILL JOHN 2 REG'T (MCWILLIE'S) SOUTH CAROLINA MIL. PRIVATE PRIVATE 136 602
MCCASKILL MALCOM 2 REG'T (MCWILLIE'S) SOUTH CAROLINA MIL. PRIVATE PRIVATE 136 602
MCCASKILL TASKILL 2 REG'T (MCWILLIE'S) SOUTH CAROLINA MIL. PRIVATE PRIVATE 136 602)

That text also says that Hugh is probably son of John. Born ca 1780 Scotland (probably Isle of Skye.) Died Miss. Married ca 1803 to Margaret McIntosh in Ireland.

In 1964, George E. McCaskill of Coral Gables, Fla. compiled a genealogy of his family. He stated that his earliest known ancestor was Daniel McCaskill (born ca 1770 in Scotland or the Carolinas) who married Margaret McIntosh ca 1803 in SC. Were this true, this family would have been a descendant of Finley McCaskill; however, recent information obtained from the Jackson, Miss. Court House refutes Daniel as being the husband of Margaret McIntosh and the ancestor of this family. Filed there is a Biographical Memoranda written by Laurence Augustus McCaskill, grandson of Hugh McCaskill and Margaret McIntosh, whose relationship to the family of Olive McCaskill Bell is clearly established. Therefore, the earliest known ancestor is not Daniel and Margaret McIntosh McCaskill but Hugh and Margaret McIntosh McCaskill. This memoranda, which was written by Laurence Augustus McCaskill and signed by him 4/18/1912. (That detailed memoranda is on pages 117 and 118 of The MacAskill/McCaskill text.)

However, A History of Rankin County, Mississippi, Volume I, (published by the Rankin County Historical Society in 1984), page 238, in the Neely biography says that Thomas Neely married on July 10, 1823, in Copiah County, Mississippi, Catherine McCaskill, daughter of Daniel and Margaret (nee McIntosh) McCaskill. Thomas Neely and his wife, Catherine, lived in Simpson County, Mississippi, where some of their children were born.

See Catherine's notes for more from this text.

To further support that Daniel was the head of this family, there is no Hugh McCaskill in the 1820, 1824, 1830, 1840, 1840-41, or 1845 Mississippi census.

There are mentions of Daniel McCaskill in the 1820, 1824, 1830, 1840, and 1840-41. In fact, in the 1830 Simpson County Federal census there is a Daniel aged 40-60 and another aged 20-40. The 1834 Simpson County Tax Roll shows a Daniel Jr. and a Daniel Sr. both in the S. River section. They appear again in the 1835 tax roll.

The 1820 federal census shows a Daniel McCaskill living in Jackson County, Mississippi. Listed are two males to 14, 1 to 26, and 2 over 45. There is on female to 14, 1 to 26, and 1 to 45. There are 2 male and 4 female slaves listed. This would account for Kenneth, James, and Alexander as to 14, Daniel Jr. to 26, Daniel Sr., one other older male over 45; Nancy to 14, Catherine to 26, and Margaret to 45. William could have been born after the census was taken. This accounts for this McCaskill family at the time of the census.

Mississippi History 1924: The Heart of the South, Volume 2, page 823 states that when Simpson County was formed in 1824, Daniel McCaskill was the County Coronor. It is interesting that in the Index of the above text, there are only two McCaskills, our Daniel and a John who lived in Carroll County. This is further evidence of no Hugh McCaskill in Mississippi at this time.

The 1824 state census does indicate that Daniel McCaskill had a white child born between May 1823 and 4th May 1824. This would coincide with Daniel Jr.'s birth of his son Hugh G. McCaskill.

The 1824 taxpayers list for Simpson county contains the names Daniel McCaskill, H. McCaskill, and John McCaskill.

The 1830 Mississippi federal census lists the following for the two Daniel McCaskills in Simpson County (one on page 181 line 4 and the other on page 184 line 5):

1 m 10-20, 2 m 20-40, 1 m 40-60, 1 f 10-20, and 1 f 40-60.
2 m <10, 1 m 20-40, 1 f <10, 1 f 10-20, and 1 f 20-40.

It is also interesting that an extensive search of the online Internet genealogical resources does not reveal a single existance of a Hugh McCaskill born prior to 1800. There are several occurences of Daniel McCaskill in the 1700s. Unfortunately, none of them can be tied to our Daniel.

There are 27 land records involving McCaskills in MS. Not one indicates a Hugh, but two mention Daniel McCaskill. One involves him in 1826 at the Jackson Land Office for 95.22 acres. Another involves him in 1841 at the Mt. Salus Land Office for 79.5 acres. There is no way of telling if these are Daniel Sr. or Daniel Jr. indicated in the various MS tax and census records during that period.

Another interesting point is made in History of Macon County Georgia by Louise Frederick Hays, 1933, in the discussion of Murdock D. McCaskill who moved from Kershaw County, SC to Macon County, GA. His uncle, Daniel McCaskill, was one of five first cousins bearing the name of Daniel McCaskill. These cousins were distinguished from one another by certain personal or physical characteristics, as "Preacher Daniel," "Pond Daniel," "Reader Daniel," Gentleman Daniel," and "Acre-Foot Daniel." Murdock's uncle "Reader Daniel" was born about 1760 so he would probably be of the same generation as our Daniel Hugh McCaskill. I wonder which, if either, of the cousins are our Daniel. A coincidence is that the History of Macon County describes my great great grandfather Matthew H. Leggitt (1792-1864) as one of the baronial settlers of Macon County.

Here are some other mentions involving our McCaskill line:

Powe, b. 1806 in Chesterfield Co., S. C. Daniel's mother was Christine McLean, and he had brothers Kenneth and Allen McCaskill. According to family tradition, Daniel came from S. C. to Miss., where he was from 1823 to 1830. Said to be a schoolteacher.

From An Early History of Simpson County, Mississippi by Bee King (in the LDS Family History Library 976.2582 H2k):

p. 20 - The early settlers of Simpson County acquired title to their lands from the government of the United States by original entry and most of them took lands lying along Strong River and the various creeks of the county. The reason for this was because the bottom lands were not heavily timbered. Among thos who settled along Strong River was James McCaskill.

p. 21 - At the same time that William Gibson settled where Westville was afterwards located, several other settlers located nearby. John Neely about a mile west and John and Elam Albritton about two miles north of Gibson's place and Alexander McCaskill and James McDuffie just south of the Indian camp. They probably all came together from North Carolina.

p. 42 - In 1833 Alexander McCaskill was elected sheriff of the county, but in the latter part of 1834, he resigned and a special election held on the 2nd day of January, 1835 to elect a successor to McCaskill.

p. 80 - Simpson County was created January 23, 1824 by an Act of the Legislature, but the county seat was not located until the following year. On February 4, 1825, an Act of the Legislature was approved appointed Peter Stubbs, Jacob Carr, James Boggan, Robert Laird, James B. Satterfield, William Herring and Daniel McCaskill as a committee to locate a permanent seat of Justice within three miles of the center of the county, and ordered that a county tax be assessed to provide for the construction of county buildings. This act specified the size of the town, the width of the streets, etc. Soon afterwards, the committee located the county seat at Westville.

p. 98 - All the first officers of the county were appointed by the Governor. The first Coroner was Daniel McCaskill.

http://ourworld.cs.com/uptondavid/simpsonfolk/counest.htm says:

Simpson County was established in 1824. In 1825 an act of the legislature was approved designating Daniel McCaskill, James B. Scatterfield, William Herring, James Boggan (James B. Jr. would have been age 62 and Jessie James Sr. would have been 48 years old) Jacob Carr, and Peter Stubbs as the committee to locate a permanent county seat within three miles of the center of the county. It also ordered that a county tax of one half the amounts of the state tax should be assessed to provide for the construction of the county courthouse and jail. This act also specified the width of the streets as well as the size of the town.

I had an opportunity today to stop in at the library in Greene County, MS. One thing that sort of prompted me was the fact that they have a community called NEELEY, MS there. What I found created some confusion for me. You will note that the McCaskill family married into the NEELEY family here in MS.

So somehow the Greene County folks (once a part of Alabama) are stating that this group of Neeley folks once lived in their area.

The 1834 Simpson County tax roll shows Daniel Sr. with 95 acres in S. River. Daniel Jr. has 80 in S. River.

They appear again in 1835.

In the 1841 state census for Simpson County there is a D. McCaskill with no dependants and 60+ years of age.

Add this above in its logical place:

The 1816 Greene County, Mississippi Territory State Census shows Daniel McCaskill with 1 male >21, 5 males <21, 1 female >21, 2 female <21 for a total of nine with no slaves.

In 1817 Daniel McCaskill paid one white poll tax in Greene County. A Peter McCaskill also paid one white poll tax there.

An early platt map for Greene county shows that Daniel McCaskill owned Sections 8 and 9 of Township 1 South Range 6 West.

As further evidence of this man being named Daniel, the following is posted at:
http://www.chesterfielddistrictchapter.org/chesterfieldsc/surnameMcCASKILL.html
Anne McCaskill Libis <mailto:clibis@bcpl.net> - 10/22/2002 Daniel McCASKILL I have reason -- to believe that Daniel McCASKILL lived in Chesterfield County in the early 1800s and his daughter Catherine was born there in 1804, Kenneth in 1806, James 1808, etc. His wife's name was Margaret McINTOSH. I believe they came from the Isle of Skye. The trouble is there were so many Daniel McCASKILLs (many recorded in Camden Archives) that I cannot tell which is my Daniel. The family moved to Simpson County, Mississippi and I do find a land grant to Daniel there in 1826. There are also grants to sons, James and Alexander. I am hoping that maybe the descendants of some other McCASKILLs or McCLEODs (or other Scottish) who did not leave S.C. might have heard of these people. Perhaps, even likely they came from Skye together to Cape Fear. One researcher that I know came across 2 Daniel McCASKILLs at the Mt. Moriah Presbyterian Church in 1835. Does anyone know of that Church in the old Darlington District?

In Feburary 2007 I asked Olive McCaskill Bell about the above. Here is here response:

Dear Roy, suppose you and I will argue until the cows come home and we'll never agree! The progenitor of my branch of McCaskills was Daniel not Hugh.
only Hugh McCaskill I know of, who can be found on any census, is my late uncle, Hugh Lufkin McCaskill, my father, James Dove McCaskill's younger brother; he was named for his mother's favorite uncle, Dr. Hugh McLaurin.
great-uncle, Laurence Augustus McCaskill (my grand father, James Lufkin Forsythe McCaskill's younger brother, filled in a questionnaire with information about himself when he was a member of the Mississippi State Legislature in which he stated that his parents were Alexander McCaskill and Elizabeth Boggan and his grandparents were Hugh, married to Margaret MacIntosh.
had sent Andy and Dixie a remarkably extensive chart of descendents of Daniel and Margaret. We know that they left South Carolina in 1820 and claimed land on Silver Creek in what was to become Simpson County. When Simpson County was organized Daniel was appointed the first Coroner. He is mentioned numerous times in Mr. Bee King's historical articles about early days there.
said surely Laurence would have known his grandfather's name, but, I think, he wouldn't necessarily. His father, Alexander, died when my grandfather was twelve and Laurence was only five. His mother, nee Betsy Boggan, was expecting another child in four months so she took her brood (the two boys and three little girls), and went home to her parents. Her father, Joseph Boggan, was one of the most prosperous men in Simpson County. So little Laurence would not have been around his McCaskill grandparents after the age of five.
who, if you don't already know, after Andy's death, finished rearing their two wonderful boys and (confidentially, in my opinion) badly spoiled daughter, then after 15 years' widowhood, married a truly terrific man named Gordon Lewis. She has just survived nearly two years of sheer hell, but is now pronounced cancer-free! She was the first person I'd ever known to be cured of pancreatic cancer. Then in January I got a Christmas letter from friends in Bellington, Washington, and that lady had also beat it after quite an ordeal in Seattle Cancer Center. Since that our UNM Medical School Cancer Center has announced two recoveries! Dixie and Gordon are still active in the Clan MacLeod Society, but she is no longer doing McCaskill research.
back to the Daniel-or-Hugh problems, I think birthdates tell us a lot: You may not agree, but my cousin George Elliott, son of Samuel E., son of Samuel F., son of Kenneth, son of Daniel and Margaret, gives them as follows in that line: Daniel, b Skye (my visceral feeling on visiting MacAskill sites in Skye is the valley of the river Ose, on the old Ebost tack) probably circa 1770-75. We know that Catharine, his daughter, was born in South Carolina in 1804, Kenneth in 1806, James in 1808, my great grandfather, Alexander, according to his family Bible, April 7, 1810, etc.
oldest son, Samuel Frazer, b August 13 1832, in Mississippi; his oldest daughter, was born in 1855; fourth child, Samuel Ellis b 1860; and his son George Elliott, was born in November, 1884.
my line on down, Alexander m Elizabeth Boggan; their first child b 1835, next my grandfather, listed in Bible as James Lufkin Forsythe (he never used the Forsythe, and we have no idea who the Lufkin or Forsythe honored. Neither is a name with any family connection) b September 4, 1837. My father, James Dove (Dove was his mother's grandmother's maiden name) was born 1873, and I was born in December, 1915. As you can see, one branch got in one more generation than the other in the century from 1770 to 1870.
like to have you as kin, Roy, but I can't find the evidence, so I think we'll have to settle for being kith. Anyway we do descend from Askel!
clanship, Olive
Roy, I think it was you who called my attention to the McCaskill forum on the internet. It seems to have shut down. Do you know why? We had some really interesting discussions going there for a time.

72. John Hallum 23 was born about 1715 and died in 1765 in Rowan Co, North Carolina about age 50.

General Notes: The genealogy from John Hallum to Edmund Allums was copied from a file available on Ancestry.com. It was posted by Cindy Bolinger, 2922 18th Ave. North Texas City, TX 77590 on 21 April 2001. Unfortunately, she did not quote any sources or provide any family history other than names and dates.

Cindy's husband Bobby Bolinger is apparently a descendant of John Hallum through John Allums, Asa Allums, to Martha Allums who married John G. Beasley.

John married someone.

His child was:

80. William Dinkins Sr.,25,26 son of Thomas Dinkins and Nancy Ann, was born after 1717 in Probably, Mechlenburg, North Carolina.

General Notes: Source: Dinkins of South Carolina, R. A. Moore (unpublished manuscript).

a1736 Williamsburg County

Within the territory limits of what is now Williamsburg but outside Williamsburg Township as surveyed in 1736... settlers whose names have not herfore been mentioned are ... William and Sarah Tompkins Dinkins. These people settled along the Black River from the point where it turns abruptly northward just entering Georgetown County from Williamsburg County and along the present Williamsburg-Georgetown County line to the Pee Dee River. This settlement was called Winjaw, and this was the first part of the present county of Williamsburg that was inhabited by white people. Some of these people lived there as early as 1710....."

Bodie, William Willis. Historic Williamsburg County, South Carolina, Columbia, S. C., 1923.

Source: Sumter Chapter Lineage Chart 142 (Mrs. Edward V. Atkinson).

Source of marriage: Sumter Old Bible Records. (see William Dinkins, b.18 May 1746. This bible also indicates Wm. Wright m. 26 Dec 1745 to Sarah Paterson.

Andrea says this William Dinkins, the Revolutionary soldier of the High Hills, is not to be confused with another contemporary William Dinkins (his cousin) who was also a soldier.....The other William Dinkins was a son of Thomas and Nancy (Ann) Dinkins of Anson Co. N.C. and Cheraw Dist. S.C. The William Dinkins always signs his own name in more than twenty or more papers I have examined... The other William Dinkins, a soldier, in some ten or twelve papers of his I have examined always signs with "His X Mark". The William Dinkins of Anson Co. N.C. and Cheraw Dist. S.C. was in Georgia by 26 Sept. 1799....... While the William Dinkins, Revolutionary soldier of the High Hills of Sumter Co. S.C. was in the High Hills from 1768 to 1812.

Another statement in Leonardo Andrea's file indicates the connection of this William to his father.

This Joshua was the father of John, Lewis, and Thomas Dinkins, whose names, along with his, appear in the Revolutionary Index in S.C. along with those of his brother, William, Sr.; his son, William, Jr.; and William, Jr.'s sons, Asa and Samuel.

In record 23, Andrea indicates this William married Sarah Tompkins 12 Feb.
1738 in the Pr. Frederick Episcopal Church...This church was the parish church of entire Craven County from 1715 to 1765 when other parish churches were erected.....The dates of this William Dinkins fit for him to have been the son of John Dinkins arrived in Charleston 1717.

Historical Sketches of Sumter County Volume II, 1981, says it is believed that William Dinkins, who married Sarah Tompkins, who was the ancestor of those of the Dinkins name living in Sumter County. In the Prince Frederick Parish record is the notation: "February ye 12th 1738 William Dinkins and Sarah Tompkins marryed." He took his bride to Chesterfield, where they were members of the famed old St. David Episcopal Church in Cheraw. They are likely buried there.

However, it is recorded in the family Bible that William Dinkins, Jr., was born in Craven County May 18, 1746. (RCL note: I have been told that Craven County covered a very large area in both NC and SC in the early times.)

96. John Hussey, son of John Hussey II and Ann Inskeep, was born on 30 Oct 1703 and died in 1770 in Newberry Twp, York, Pennsylvania at age 67.

General Notes: Source: The Epistle Vol I #8, Feb 1975. Marriage date is from IGI. However, the IGI also has a John Hussey and Margaret Riccord married in 1773 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire.

Marriage: IGI indicates 1773, which is unrealistic. Several references including the Epistle and The Batchelor Family News-Journal indicate 1733.

Richard Milhous Nixon descends from the 1733 union.

1749, 6, 5. Kennett MM, PA John chm for marrying out of unity.
1749, 7, 2. Kennett MM, PA John granted certificate to Warrington MM.
1764, 2, 4. Cane Creek MM, NC John granted certificate.

It appears that John Hussey and Margaret Riccord remained in the Chester County, PA until Margaret died sometime prior to 1749. The source of John's an Margaret's children is the IGI.

In 1749 John married Elizabeth, not within the church, and moved to Warrington in York County. The information about thier children is circumstantial. The text 100 Years at Warrington indicate five children born to John and Betty Hussey between the years of 1751 and 1759. Since this is the decade they spent in Warrington and Betty is a common derivitive of Elizabeth, I feel it is a valid assumption. Ms. Marie Mimbs, of Pompano Beach, FL, substantiates this when she confirmed that John's and Elizabeth's last child is Betty, born 3 Nov 1759, the same as listed in 100 Years at Warrington.

John and Elizabeth, along with John's sons John and Stephen, and brother Christopher and his family, probably migrated to Orange County, NC, by 1760

According to Marie Mimbs, John Jr. produced a certificate from Newark 4-15-1749 dated 7-2-1749; also an acknowledgement for marriage by a priest to one not a member. Elizabeth Hussey, his wife, requested to be received into membership which was granted after consideration on 10-21-1757. John Hussey was appointed overseer by Newberry MM 8-20-1757. They requested a certificate to North Carolina 10-20-1759 also Robert Hodgen and his wife which was John's Aunt Theodate Hussey Hodgen and Uncle. John Jr. died by 1783 so it was stated on the marriage records of thier daughter Betty 12-1783. Marie Mimbs confirms the names and birth dates of John's and Elizabeth's four children and Betty's marriage to Daniel Price.

John returned to York County, PA, probably in 1764, and died there in 1770.

According to Marie Mimbs, John Hussey's will is as follows:

I, John Husey of Newberry Township in the County of York and the Province of Pennsylvania being sick and weak in body but through mercy of sound and well disposing mind and memory and calling to mind the undertainty of time and the moralitiy of this frail body, do therefore make this my Last Will and Testament in manner and form following, that is to say I commend my soul to God who gave hoping for redemption through Jesus Christ Our Lord, and my body to be buried in a Christian like manner by my Executors and as touching my worldly Goods, I give and bequeath them in the following manner, That is to say, That first of all my will and desire is that all my just debts and funeral Expenses be honestly and paid as soon as possible after my decease-- Item I give and bequeath unto my Daughter Mary Updegraff Wife of Samuel Updegraff of York town, twenty shillings Pennsylvania Currency.

Item I give and bequeath unto my son John Husey of North Carolina the sum of one hundred pounds lawful money of Pennsylvania to be payed by my Executors as soon after my death as the money can be payed by the Sale of the place I now live on.
Item I give and bequeath unto my Daughter Margaret Husey the sum of twenty pounds lawful money of Pennsylvania to be paid her by my Executors.
Item I give and bequeath unto my Daughtor Elizabeth Husey the sum of Thirty pounds of lawful money to be paid by my Executors.

...
And lastly I hereby Appoint, Nominate Constitute and appoint my son Riccord Hussey my just and loving friend William Matthew as my Executors of this my Last Will and Testament hereby revoking all former Will and Wills by me heretofore made.

General Notes: Source: Cleaver.

Exactly when Thomas Jessup moved from Perquimans County to Orange County (which later included Guilford County) is not certain. Records show real estate sales that total some one thousand five hundred eighty acres from the years 1742 through 1753 in Perquimans County. The "Jessup Schoolhouse" in Perquimans County is said to have once been a house of Thomas. It was used as a Quaker meeting place for a time then became a place for "children to study the Blue Back Speller." Thomas is recorded in Perquimans County in 1760 and in Orange County in 1766. His Friends membership between 1765 and 1767 moved back and forth from Cove Creek to New Garden. In Guilford County he settled his children on farms around his. His farm still known as "Jessup's Farm" is near the site of Guilford College and the New Garden Meeting.

General Notes: Source: Barbara Petty (Prodigy GRTF63A), 1992.

One good book (for Ellyson research) is Tidewater Virginia Families by Virginia Huchenson Davis, and another is Maryland Virginia Colonoials by Dolinite. However, another genealogy from SC "Mills-Smith A South Carolina Family" by Laurens Tenney Mills lists the Bible pages of Elizabeth Ellyson Erwin of SC where she listed her lineage in the latter part of the 1700s and it takes the Ellysons back to a John Ellyson and his wife Ellin Hamilton of Lanark Scotland. John came to Va. in 1610, and his wife followed about 1615/16 and they lived at Archer's Hope at Jamestown.

See the complete correspondence from Ms. Petty at John Ellyson, the immigrant.

104. Charles Benbow, son of Richard Benbow and Susanna Jones, was born on 20 Feb 1704 in Montgomery, , Wales and died from 1774 to 1775 in , Bladen County, North Carolina at age 70.

General Notes: Source: The History of Guilford County, North Carolina by Sallie W. Stockard 1902.

In 1718 three Benbow brothers came from Wales to America in a sailing vessel. As they had no money they were, according to custom, sold in Philadelphia to the highest bidder for the shortest length of time, to meet the expenses of the passages on the ship. Charles, then fourteen years old, was bid off by a man by the name of Carver, who resided in Pennsylvania. He afterwards came with the family to Bladen County, North Carolina, and later married one of Carver's daughters. His brother Gresham was taken by a New Jersey man. Later, he and his family went to Bush River, South Carolina, and several of the family moved to Indiana. Gresham and his sons, Powell and Richard, were noted for their fondness for fine horses and racing. During the Revolutionary War Mr. Carver and Charles Benbow were engaged in the culture of the indigo plant, and later moved to Guilford County, and being Friends, settled at Centre Meeting House, ten miles south of Greensboro. The third brother was sold, but never has been traced.

The Benbows are a long-lived people. Charles had five daughters and two sons, Thomas being the ancestor of the family now living in Guilford County and several of the Western States.

Thomas married Hannah Stanley, March 24, 1787. They had two daughters and three sons. They settled near the Guilford Battleground and Mr. Benbow owned and operated a tanyard there. He must have owned a blacksmith shop as well, for he made the nails and door-latches for the New Garden Meeting House in 1792.

Charles married Mary Carver. Mary was born on 15 Jun 1719 in , , Maryland.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Elizabeth Benbow was born about 1742 in , Bladen County, North Carolina.

         ii.  Ann Benbow (Twin) was born on 19 Oct 1746 in , Bladen County, North Carolina and died on 10 Nov 1832 at age 86.

         iv.  Mary Benbow was born on 30 Jan 1756 in , Bladen County, North Carolina and died on 10 Aug 1823 at age 67.

          v.  Sarah Benbow was born about 1757 in , Bladen County, North Carolina.

         vi.  Benjamin Benbow 15 was born about 1759 in , Bladen County, North Carolina and died on 8 Feb 1829 about age 70.

52      vii.  Thomas Benbow (born on 2 Jan 1762 in , Bladen County, North Carolina - died on 2 Feb 1825 in , Guilford, North Carolina)

According to Hinshaw's narrative about the New Garden Monthly Meeting, Eleazer and William Hunt were some of the names of the men embraced in the origninal membership of the New Garden MM.

The following account of the early history of New Garden MM is abstracted from "Southern Quakers and Slavery", pages 104-108. Of the settlers who formed the New Garden meetings the first to arrive were doubtless the immigrants from Pennyslvania by way of Maryland. They brought the name with them from Pennsylvania. It has always been a characteristic of Quakers to reproduce the names of the sections with which they have been associated in former years. Many English Quaker names are reproduced in America. There is a new Garden and a Springfield in Pennsylvania. They are carried thence to North Carolina, and from there, in turn, to Indiana.

"Immigration of the Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania", says that New Garden Meeing in Pennsylvania was named in remembrance of New Garden Meeting in County Carlow, Ireland.

General Notes: According to Plumstead to Clear Creek, in 1684 John with John Richardson, Edward Blake, and Benjamin Swett and other Friends settled near New Castle, Delaware. In 1705 he purchased a lot of land for the meeting house.

Kennett (PA) Monthly Meeting:
2- 3-1703 John Hussey and Ann Inskeep announce marriage intentions 2nd time.

Here is a message I copied from Linda Koehler on Prodigy on 9/27/94: Suzanne, This won't help you with Betty, but I do have an extract of the deed in which your John Hussey (son of John & Ann (Inskeep) Hussey) sold the land he had inherited from his father in 1733. I don't know if you have this already, but I will give the details in case you don't: New Castle County, Del. Deed Book K:353-354, dated 8 May 1735. John Hussey, yeoman of New Castle County and Margaret his wife sell to Stephen Lewis, tanner of the town of New Castle 110 acres of land and marsh, part of a larger tract commonly called John Hussey's Plantation in New Castle Hundred for 80 pounds. The deed gives the bounds which include the line of neighbor John Morton, John McComb, an old Dyke, along Nonesuch Creek, "Miln" Island in a marsh, and along Christiana Creek. John and Margaret Hussey appoint Benjamin Swett, tanner of the town of New Castle to acknowledge the deed in open court, which was done in the May term 1735. Witnesses were Sylvanus Hussey and Hannah Cox, John and Margaret both signed the deed with signatures. I believe that the Stephen Lewis who is buying the land is married to Rebeccah Hussey, daughter of Jedediah & Esther (Cooper) Hussey, and thus a cousin to John Hussey. Stephen Lewis had already acquired, 6 months earlier, the estate of his deceased father-in-law Jedediah Hussey [his brother-in-law Sylvanus Hussey who had inherited the land sold it to Stephen Lewis, and that deed gives a glimpse of another interesting story].
So by 1735, Stephen Lewis owns about 300 acres of the original 640 acre plantation that John & Rebecca (Perkins) Hussey had bought when they came to New Castle County in 1695. I don't know what or where John & Margaret Hussey went after 1735, do you? I had heard that they lived in Chester County for a time before they moved out to York County where most of John's brothers and sisters had gone. But I find it suggestive that John & Margeret are selling their land in New Castle County in 1735, when John's brother Nathan Hussey was also selling off many of his land holdings to move out beyond the Susquehanna River to what became York county. Just to follow that 110 acre tract of land that John & Margaret Hussey sold to Stephen Lewis, it was sold in 1748 by the administrators of Stephen Lewis's estate. Now, the administrators were Josiah Lewis and Rebecca, widow of Stephen Lewis who had by now remarried - to Benjamin Swett. I find this intriguing - this Benjamin Swett could be a grandson of the Benjamin Swett who married Theodate Hussey; in which case, it looks like Rebecca has married a first cousin once removed - although the ages probably work since Theodate Hussey was 18 years older than her brother Jedediah Hussey. This family likes to keep things complicated, don't they.

General Notes: Roy,
I have a little information on the Hussey's, Inskeeps and Richard Nixon.
I descend from the Inskeep family and through them I'm a distant cousin of Richard Nixon. John Inskeep came with his wife Mary and children to America in 1702, also John's sister Ann came at that time as well. Ann married John Hussey, they announced their intent to marry on March 6, 1703 at Newwark Monthly Meeting. There was an article that appeared in the Moorefield (West Viriginia) Examiner sometime in the early part of this century which included a letter from John and Ann Inskeeps sister, Isabell Jones, in London.

I have a brother deceased in Staffordshire whos name was Jonothan Inskeep, who has left a wife and four children, the oldest of which his name is John Inskeep.
I would be very glad to hear from you, to hear if my sister Ann, your aunt is living, and where she lives.
This is the whole act of our family in England who are in good health at present, some of my children are grown to maturity and have a great inclination to see their relations in that part of the world if they could have the pleasure of hearing form them, thefore it would be a great satisfaction to recieve an answer from some of you, you signified in your letter to my brother James Inskeep your desire of corresponding with the family, which I hope you will take hold of all opportunity to do-me and my husband and children and all our relations joins in love to you-from your affectionate and loving Aunt.

194. Record .

General Notes: Source: The American Descendants of Joseph Henry Records, by William N. Records, Hemet, California June 1988.

It is known that the family name Record originated in England sometime before the year 1500. One authority maintains that it is a derivative of the name Richard. The English people have long been noted for altering the pronunciation of names, so it is conceivable that some families did alter their names from "Rich-ard"" to Reck-ard" and finally to "Reck-ord". Old Parish Chburch records substantiate this concept. During the period 1540-1649, the name Record was usually spelled Rickard, Reckard, Recard, or Reacard (except in Kent where it was usually spelled Record). In later years, it was usually spelled Record or Reacord throughout England. The change in spelling presumably reflects a change in pronunciation from "Reck-ard" to "Reck-ord".

It is also possible that some families in England adopted the name Record (pronounced "Reck-ord") because their ancestors were keepers of records. This concept may account for the name being spelled Record in Kent during the period 1540-1649.

The precise origin of the family name Record may never be known. Nevertheless, it is knowwn that persons using that name were being christened, married, and buried in England during the 1500's. Most of them lived in Cornwall, Devon, Kent, or London, and a majority were on the lower rungs of the socio-economic ladder. The lower classes were not very mobile during years prior to 1650, so it's unlikely that Record families in one are were related to those in other areas.

Source: The Genealogy and History of the Record Family with over One Hundred Immigrant Ancestors Who Arrived in Plymouth Before 1650 Including Two Mayflower Passengers, by John Alden and Francis Cooke, 1986.

The RECORDS are from the very early Plymouth, Massachusetts family. Since the compilers have been unable to prove conclusively that their immigran ancestor was Giles RICKARD, it will be left for others to prove or disprove this connection to John RECORD of Weymouth, Mass.

" John Record was in Weymouth, Mass. in 1676, as a sloldier on the
Connecticut River in Philip's War of 1676." (Hist of Hingham v.3:124.)

This line can be proved, but in the absence of positive proof, Giles Rickard is being presented here as a possible solution of John Record.

Giles Ricard was born either in Wales or England in 1597 and married Judith Cogan in 1622. Judith was the daughter of Henry and Joan (Boridge) Cogan and was bapt at the Church of St. Magdalene, at Tounton, Co. Somerset on 13 June 1594. Judith married (1) William Kinge on 13 April 1618 in a double ring wedding with her sister. Kinge died in 1618 in Taunton, and the widow Judith (Cogan) Kinge married (2) Giles Ricard on 7 Jan 1623 in West Hatch Somerset, England. (Mayflower Desc v.11:115). Judith and Giles sailed to Plymouth in 1638 and she died at Ply. 6 Feb 1661/1662. She was the mother of all his childrend. Giles married (2) Joan Tilson and (3) Hannah Churchill, a widow. (Torry's Marriages.) Giles was a freeman, constable and surveyor and a large land owner. (Early Hist. of Ply. Co. Mass.) He died at the age of 87 in Feb., 1684, probably at Plymouth.

Children of Giles and Judith were Giles, John and Sarah and prehaps others.

While there is no evidence that Margaret Record desends from either of these lines, the above sources provides some insight on the Record family in general.

Record married someone.

His child was:

196. Thomas Jessop, son of Timothy Jessop and Mary Parrat, was born on 14 Jun 1688 in Rawcliffe, Yorkshire, England and died on 15 Feb 1745 in , Perquimans, North Carolina at age 56.

General Notes: Source: Cleaver.

Thomas Jessup, son of Timothy and Mary, of Rawcliffe, Yorkshire, England, was born 14, 3rd month, 1688 at Rawcliffe. He died in Perquimans County, North Carolina 10th month 15, 1744. He, a linen weaver, married, first, 5 month 13, 1710 in Braithwaite in Yorkshire, Rachel Pease, the daughter of William and Ann (Carnally) Pearson Pease of Fishlake and Rawcliffe Meetings of the Dalby Monthly Meeting of Yorkshire. Ann was the daughter of William and Ann Carnally and the widow of Nicholas Pearson who she married at Warth on Dearne in Yorkshire 14 January 1674. Rachel was born 9 month 11, 1690 and died 4 month 18, 1720 and is buried in Yorkshire. Thomas remarried in Perquimans County, North Carolina Jane (Clare) Robinson, the widow of Joseph Robinson and the daughter of Timoth Clare and his first wife Mary (Bundy) Clare. The Perquimans Monthly Meeting recoreded the marriage 12 month 6, 1722/3 with Thoma producing a "certificate of clearness from Old England." after Jane's death 5th month 17, 1737, Thomas married, third Mary Ann (Martin) Lacy, daughter of John of Pasquotank County. She had married, first, --Lacy. She married third (and was disowned) Peter Pearson, son of Peter and Rachel Pearson, as his second wife.

Although most North Carolina Friends had migrated there through Virginia from Pennsylvania, Thomas' port of entry was apparently New Bern, North Carolina, in 1722, undoubtedly because his brother Joseph was alread settled in Perquimans County. There is evidence that this migration in Perquimans County as early as 1715.

Thomas and his son Thomas emigrated about 1722 when Thomas, Jr. was about seven years old. His first record in the Perquimans Monthly Meeting was 12 mo.
6, 1722/3 when he was "liberated to marry" Jane (Clare) Robinson, widow of Joseph. In 1723 along with Gabriel Newby, Thomas was appointed by the Meeting to receive the money that belonged to the Monthly Meeting and send it to "ould Ingland" in gold and silver by weight. And by 6 month 5, 1724 he had been chosen recorder for the Meeting. Another record shows him with Thomas Pierce and Robert Wilson appointed to "view the old book that belongs to this meeting & transcribe what is material out of it into a new book." These entries and the books which appear on his inventory at death show a literacy not usual in all emigrants. But he did have an occasional difference with the Meeting. On 2nd month 7, 1731 the Clerk of the Meeting was appointed to "draw up a Testamon against Thos. Jessup for his outgoings in taking too much Drink at Sundry times to ye great dishonour of our holy profession."

He immediately began to acquire land and ultimately acquired more than can be accounted for in the deeds recorded. Conveyances of land far exceed known acquisitions. Not all transactions, of cource, were made of record and records scatter. Conveyances of some four hundred fifty acres can be identified including those at his death. His purchase of one hundred acres from Ralph Bufkin for forty shillings money of England was in 1727 and in the same year, 7 month 31, 1727, a petition to the Council at Edenton got him one hundred eighty-five acres of land upon which a patent had lapsed. He also inherited a plantation from his father-in-law Timothy Clare.

Thomas married Janne (Cleare) Robinso from 1722 to 1723 in , Perquimans, North Carolina. Janne was born about 1709.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Mary Jessop was born about 1729 in , Perqu., North Carolina.

         ii.  Elizabeth Jessop was born about 1731 in , Perqu., North Carolina.

        iii.  Jonathan Jessop was born on 27 Jun 1733 in , Perqu., North Carolina.

         iv.  Jane Jessop was born on 17 Mar 1737 in , Perqu., North Carolina.

Thomas next married Rachel Pease on 13 May 1710 in Braithwaite, Yorkshire, England. Rachel was born on 11 Sep 1690 in , , Waterloo and died on 18 Apr 1720 in Thella, Little Rock, Waterloo at age 29.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Timothy Jessop was born on 16 Sep 1711 in Rawcliffe, Yorkshire, England.

98       ii.  Thomas Jessop (born on 10 Jul 1715 in , , , England - died on 13 Dec 1783 in , Guilford, North Carolina)

        iii.  Joseph Jessop was born about 1717.

         iv.  William Jessop was born on 2 Aug 1718 in Rawcliffe, Yorkshire, England.

Thomas next married Mary Ann Martin.

Thomas next married Janne Cleare.


197. Rachel Pease, daughter of William Pease and Ann (Pearson) Carnally, was born on 11 Sep 1690 in , , Waterloo and died on 18 Apr 1720 in Thella, Little Rock, Waterloo at age 29.

Rachel married Thomas Jessop on 13 May 1710 in Braithwaite, Yorkshire, England. Thomas was born on 14 Jun 1688 in Rawcliffe, Yorkshire, England and died on 15 Feb 1745 in , Perquimans, North Carolina at age 56.

198. Benjamin Small, son of John Small and Alice Hollowell, was born about 1691 in , , Virginia and died about 1752 in , Carteret, North Carolina about age 61.

"Benjamin Small born about 1691 or 1692 in Virginia. He died in Carteret County, North Carolina in 1751 or 1752, leaving a will dated 11 month 30, 1751/2 which was probated in the Carteret County, March 1752 Court. He married, first, Mary who probably was Mary Knight. Mary died in 1743 and Benjamin remarried in 1750, reported by Core Sound Monthly Meeting, Miriam Albertson. She remarried at Carteret Meeting House 5 month 11, 1755, Joseph Stanton.

Benjamin Small and his family moved to North Carolina in 1737 presenting a letter to Core sound Monthly Meeting in Carteret county from Joseph Newby. He was appointed in 1742 to fence in the graveyard. His brother John was to 'fitt seats and windows for the women's meetings." He had been granted 100 acres in Carteret County located on the west side of Deep Creek Swamp by the Council that met at Wilmington 25 September 1741. Another 200 acres was granted 23 September 1742 with a second 200 acres on the north side of Newport river granted 25 September 1742. At the time the Spanish threatened Beauford harbour in 1747/8 Benjamin and his son appeared on the list of men who appeared to defend the town and the harbor. They served four days."

His book gives a little history on Benjamin Small, including his will. His will also reports, "I give to my son John Knite Small one feather bed furneture, 2 cows...." This would support the suggestion that Benjamin's first wife was indeed a Knight, and her father probably John Knight, found in Quaker records.

The book further mentions the children of Benjamin Small and Mary as Sarah, died 1 month 6, 1757, Benjamin, Jonas, John Knight, and Amos. Sarah Small married at Carteret Meetinghouse about 1737 Thomas Jessup, Jr. son of Thomas and Rachel (Pease) Jessup. She was the mother of ten children and died in Guilford County 1 month 6, 1757 as recorded in the New Garden Monthly Meeting records.

Byran Grimes, "Benjamin Small, Carteret County, January 11, 1751, March Court, 1752, sons Benjamin (plantation bought of David Baly) Jonas (land adjoining Benjamin) Amos (100 acres of land adjoining Thomas Jessop) John Knite Small (My manna plantation) Daughter, Sarah Jessop, Wife and Executrix: Miriam (would be 2nd wife) Witnesses, Henry Stanton and Patience Bull."

Gabriel Newby was called "Wheelwright" in a deed, 1698/9 (Winslow's History of Perquimans County, page 49, Deed book A., No. 137).

Here is a narrative sent to me by Jean Leeper (jean2gen@se-iowa.net) in May 1997:

NEWBY'S MARRY TRUEBLOOD'S, BOGUE'S, DRAPER'S & ALBERTSON'S

Gabriel Newby resided on the southwest side of the Perquiman's River, where the principal river bridge was located called the G. Newby Bridge, near Belvidere, N.C., see p 84b. Gabriel had a known brother Nathan and they were the children of William and Isabel Newby of Nancemond, VA. ANNO 1698 Picquimon's Creek in Carolina. There we ate some bread which Nathan Newby carried in his wallet & drank from the brook...We held forth towards Gabriel Newby's, brother of Nathan, at the head of Picquimon's Creek....(Quoted by Walter Pool Wood, "The Albermarle in 1682-1705." (Perq. Hist. Soc., Year Book, Vol. II, p 19.) This quote shows the relationship of Gabriel and Nathan. A Nathan Newby m.

Note: JANET KAY LEHNHOF, 5836 KERRY CIRCLE, MURRAY, UTAH 84107, Submission: AF90-100309 contains a genealogy of John Crew and Sarah Osborne with 11 children. Carl Hemmingsen provided a genealogy of John Crew and Sarah Gattley with four (of the same) children. While there is no proof that either is correct, I am assuming Ms. Lehnhof's as correct. This is substantiated a little by the fact that there are no GATLEY/GATTLEY family entries in the Hinshaw Virginia Quaker Genealogies.

The following is a message from Barbara Petty (GRTF63A) to Donna Hechler

Donna,
I'll try to answer your question about John Crew and Sarah Gatley. This is from Tidewater Virginia Families: A Social History by Virginia Lee Hutcheson Davis of Urbanna Va. in 1989 (by the way she now has a newsletter called Tidewater Va. Families and is researching primary sources in Va.) In her original book (it's been repub. by Gen. Pub. Co) on pg. 442, she discusses John Crew:

The John Crew family of Charles City County was also active in the society (of Friends) and Robert (Ellyson) and Sarah Crew, the daughter of John must have attended many meeetings together as they were growing up. Robert and Sarah were married to each other on 8th day 1st month 1714 at the home of William Ladd. The particular meeting in Charle City County was held at the home of members until they could build their meeting house. It had been held for a number of years in the home of Sarah's father, and then had been moved to the home of William Ladd, for the convenience of those Friends living in the woods above Herring Creek.

The given name of Sarah's mother was SARAH, and she was very likely the daughter of NICHOLAS GATLEY of Charles City County. JOHN CREW and his wife, SARAH, sued Sarah's mother for her share of her father, Nicholas' estate in February 1689. The case continued in court, with Sarah and John both under age and Sarah's mother having married twice after the death of Nicholas Gatley (before 1685).

SARAH GATLEY (the elder) married John Smith, who held Nicholas' estate for his daughter. He had died and Sarah Smith married William Morris, who had also died. The court finally awarded Sarah and John Crew 4605 pounds of tobacco on March 3, 1690 and warned Sarah, the mother that her securities would have to pay it if she didn't. Sarah Crew had come of age by this date.

Hope that is a help? I'd be interested to know where you "heard" that Sarah was an Osborn or a Crispe? I have also seen the above information in abstract books of Va. records.

I didn't have your David listed as a child either? Not to say that he was not, but it doesn't seem to be in Hinshaw.

Can you cite your source for him? Thanks. Barb

Here is the complete comment Patricia A. Ray posted in April 1998:

I found the data posted by Roy Leggett fascinating and good to read again to check my impressions of it. I have a couple of comments. I want to emphasize that the John CREW who was b. 1 Mar 1660 in Northampton Co, VA is NOT the same John CREW who m. Sarah GATLEY since those court records show that the 2nd John CREW was not of age in 1689 so he couldn't have been born in 1660.

The court records are still a little confusing to me. In the part posted by Karmen Hatchett last year it says, "Jono. Crew is in his nonage" and the opposing lawyers request that no judgt. may pass until Crew is capbably(sic) by law, etc. (I can't figure out the date that was happening but I thought that was in 1689.)

So John and Sarah choose Maj. Jno. Stith as their guardian on 4 Aug 1690. (Why would they wait so long?) Or did they choose him in 1689 and the 4 Aug 1690 date is action against those holding estate? Then 15 Sep 1690 the court "Summond Ja. Woodhouse & Jonah Liscombe (sur.) out of estate of John Smith dec'd? Etc, etc, etc. What was the purpose of choosing a guardian? He didn't take any action in Sarahs' behalf that I can see. She has come of age before she got her share of the estate.

Maybe these records work better if I take the date and everything after it until the next date as one record?

Crew and Sarah his wife choose Maj. Jno. Stith their guardian 4 Aug 1690 original pet. - action to be against those holding estate 15 Sep 1690 Summond Ja. Woodhouse & Jonah Liscombe (sur.) out of estate of John Smith dec'd

5 Jan 1690 judgment against Woodhouse and Liscombe, against estate of Wm Morris in hand of Sarah his relice, belonging to orphans of Nic. Gatley. .Maj Jono Stith guardian of Jno. Crew & Sarah his wife 3 Mar 1690 Jno Crew, who marryed Sarah, orphan of Nicho. Gatley, dec'd by Maj. Jno Stith, their guardian, set forth that on 3 April 1685, by court order, the estate of John Smith, dec'd who, marrying said Sarah's mother, (and Adm'x of Nicho. Gatley, decd'e) was brought in and delivered to this court for part payment of Gatley's orphans estates, and court did deposit Smith's estate in hands of said Sarah her mother , who gave bond. Sarah, the orphan, being now of age, prays from Sarah her mother 4605 lbs tobacco, being her part in Smith's estate. Court advises tat Sarah the mother is to pay the daughter, or her security Ja. Woodhouse and Jonah Liscombe will be liable for it.

Well, even though it duplicates the record of 3 Mar 1690 each records seems to give different data. It looks to me now that John & Sarah were married by that date. On that date they cite the date of 3 Apr 1685 when Sarah, the mother, was told to make part payment of the estate of Nicholas Gatley to his heirs and she posted bond. It says Sarah, the orphan, was of age by 3 Mar 1690 according to the 2nd record of 3 Mar 1690. The first record says that John CREW was NOT of age. Do you think that means that Sarah was 18 by that date but John was not yet 21?

Thereupon John & Sarah choose Jono. Stith as "their" guardian even though Sarah was of age? Does that mean Stith was actually representing John but Sarah could act for herself?

We move on to 4 Aug 1690 and 15 Sep 1690 when the court evidently acts against James Woodhouse & Jonah Liscomb because Sarah, the mother, has not given her dau. her share?

Then the records jumps back to 5 Jan 1690. Why? Should that be 5 Jan 1691? Hopefully you can see why these records confuse me. Can anyone give me some clarity on this?

Pat

p.s. Note the date 15 Aug 1678. We have that Nicholas GATELY was deceased by 1685. According to this he was deceased before 15 Aug 1678 as Sarah, his widow, was married to John SMITH by that date.

Date: Wed, 6 Jan 1999 14:01:53 -0800From: "PATRICIA RAY" <PASR@prodigy.net> Subject: [CREWS-L] John2 CREW Jr. (John1)
from "Thomas Bell: Ulster Scot to South Carolina And Allied Families" compiled by Rufie Lee Williams, Allmond Printing company - Aberdeen, Mississippi, copyright 1984, Library of Congress, p. 395

John2 CREW, Jr. (John1) b. in Charles City, Co. m. 3/4/1717, Agatha ELLYSON, sister of Robert and dt.. of Gerard Robert of New Kent. They were m. in Friends MH. C.C. Co. John Jr. contributed toward the building or repairing of Henrico MM house in 1745, he was appointed it's treasurer and served until 1 Nov. 1760 when he resigned because of ill health. He was recommended as an elder 7 Apr 1759. On the list of 'sufferings' in 1735, John Jr., a member of Waineoke Mtg. reported he had 79 pounds of tobacco taken this year for fines. John must have died before his wife as it was reported to Henrico MM that Agatha had "bedding seized for priests wages by the sheriff, on 1 May 1762". the Virginia Yearly Meeting on the 29 of May 1762 reported they both were deceased. Agatha was an elder and John a minister. Memorials were read concerning each one and ordered recorded.

They had spent 45 years together in developing the settlement and rearing their family of which we find records for eight children.

In January 1999 Patricia Ray provided me the following notes for John Crew:

Name: John CREWS
Birth Date: Abt 1669
Place: ,Charles City Co, VA

see CREWS-L vol. 97 #5, message 7, pg. 6 for a desc. chart see file CREWS/GATLEY for a desc. chart

He is only possibly the John who was the s/o John b abt 1630 & Elyzabeth.

John Crew & Sarah Gatley had 10 children. Per *P note "Andrew named his dau. Hannah". This family was Quaker.

May be the one who married Sarah Gatley.

He had a mare, 76 lb. tobacco, a gun, and 5 pewter dishes confiscated for his refusal to bear arms and pay tithes in 1726: Hinshaw pg. 166.

There is strong possibility John m. Sarah Osborne and they had all the ch. except Gatley, then he m. Sarah Gatley and Gatley was their only ch., and also the possibility that he m. a Catherine before Sarah Osborne.

12/94 Barb Petty on internet repost *P: this John poss. s/o Andrew Crew, who d. in VA and Joseph Renshaw was his adm. Renshaw may have m. Andrew's widow as John was mentioned in his will along with Andrew Crew, Robert and Ann Crew.

Came to Northampton VA in 1694, belonged to Curles Meeting, Henrico Co.

8/95 *P: C.Palmer has dd of 1714.
10/95 *P: shows 10 ch, doesn't have Gatley.
10/95 *P: came to Charles City Co VA by 1674 w/Thomas Stanley.

I believe the John who m. Sarah Gatley was b. in 1669, not 1660. There are court records showing that when John & Sarah sued her mother (1689)for her inheritance from her father, both she & John were underage. The case was continued until 1690 and they were both of age then.

It's poss that the John who was b. in 1660 was the one who m. Catherine Osborne.

None of these children are b. before 1690 and I think the children of John & Catherine would prob have been older, if they existed. [Pat]

(from Charles Demastus) He has John Crews b. in Devonshire, England. Check with him on where he got that info. This is the father of John Crew b. c1669 in Charles City Co, Va, d. c1752 same place. I agree with the date 1669.

(see above theory)

"As for JOHN CREW and Catherine, this is what I can tell you; John was a Quaker in the Curles Neck Meeting house in Charles City County, VA. He married Catherine and Sarah. John's death date of 5/4/1765 is as qouted from the book Crew Family History, by this date John is presumed deceased. His son John was fined and a demand for the fine of his father to be paid from his estate. The date of John's birth, marriage and death have not been found to date since there were several JOHN CREWS".

"The above quotation comes from a copy of the book printed by Woodrow Wilson CREW, a first cousin to my grandfather Phillip Thomas CREW. Woodrow passed on last year and I have no futher info on how he obtained his Info, but I believe he got most from early Quaker records, the News and Observer article of 2/16/69 by J C Downing (which I have not read) and the CREW and Ellyson genealogy.

"Andrew Crew the grandson of John was the one that moved to NC in Northhampton County, in the JACKS SWAMP MEETING HOUSE that my family follows. I do not know about a GADSON CREW. Woodrow lived in Roaenaoke Rapids,NC"

John married Sarah Gattley on 3 Oct 1690 in Henrico Mm, Henrico, Virginia. Sarah was born about 1670 in Of, , Virginia.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Gatley Crews was born about 1692.

         ii.  Sarah Crews was born about 1694 in Of, , Virginia.

102     iii.  John Crews (born about 1696 in Of, , Virginia - died on 11 Apr 1762 in , Chrles City, Virginia)

         iv.  Andrew Crew was born about 1698 in Of, , Virginia.

          v.  Joseph Crews was born about 1702 and died in 1759 about age 57.

         vi.  Mary Margaret Crews was born about 1704.

        vii.  David Crews was born in 1706 in Of, Henrico, Virginia.

       viii.  Jane Crews was born about 1708 in Of, , Virginia.

         ix.  William W. Crews was born about 1710 in Of, Henrico, Virginia.

          x.  Anne Crews was born about 1713.

         xi.  Elizabeth Crew was born on 2 Apr 1712 in Of, Charles City, Virginia.


205. Sarah Gattley, daughter of Nicholas Gattley and Sarah, was born about 1670 in Of, , Virginia.

General Notes: The LDS Ancestral File AFN:FNVG-KC lists John CREW's wife as Sarah OSBORNE, born about 1670 and married about 1691. However, the concensus of most everyone else is that the wife is Sarah Gat(t)ley, daughter of Nicholas and Sarah. I tend to agree with the concensus in that there is no other mention of an Osborne family in the Henrico area at this time.

Note: All of the dates of birth for the children of Gerald Robert Ellyson in the LDS Ancestral File appear to be approximately 20-30 years too early. Some are indicated prior to Gerald Robert's birth.

In March 1997 I received a serious critique about my genealogy of this family from Heather Olsen <holsen@westnet.com>. Readers should consider this along with what I have entered:

On Gerard Robert Ellyson: You have him marrying Anne Myhill in 1700 and list her as the mother of his children, yet the older children were surely born before this date. In the Quaker records G.R.'s widow is referred to as Sarah, and there was a Sarah Ellyson who appears as early as 1704. I'm inclined to believe this Sarah is G.R.'s wife and the mother of his children. Some researchers think she was born a Crew, but I haven't seen any hard evidence to support this.

I rather doubt that this particular Anne Myhill ever married OUR Gerrard Robert. First, if I remember correctly, her will doesn't mention her husband-- this would tend to suggest she was a widow. Yet, our G.R. didn't die until the 1740's. Second, none of the sons she names appear in the Quaker records as sons of G.R. You include a John as son of G.R. and Anne, but you have this individual married in 1691, which means he would have to have been born no later than 1675. This seems a bit early for him to have been G.R,'s son. There was a Thomas Ellyson who married Elizabeth Crew in 1731, not 1729, as you state, but I rather doubt he was the son of G.R., as he is listed as being from Prince George's county. Third, Anne's brother Joshua names his nieces Judith Collier and Lucy Dowling in his will. G.R. had a dau. Judith, who married someone else, and no known daughter Lucy.

My guess would be that Anne married an Ellyson of G.R.'s father's generation-- perhaps his father's brother.

On Susanna or Elizabeth Gerrard as as G.R.'s mother. I wouldn't assume that any convention about naming first sons was as hard and fast as you seem to suggest. Though some such conventions existed, there was a lot of variation from family to family. Also, I definite would not assume that G.R. was the oldest son. There might well have been older sons who we find no record of.

What evidence do you have to support the further back Ellyson lines-- I have never seen anything going back farther than Robert, father of G.R.

Heather Olsen impresses me as a serious researcher. Consider her comments seriously.

In Jan 1998, Dan Treadway <treadway@netins.net>, wrote:

Sharon Doliante's account of the family in _Maryland and Virginia olonials..._ is, I think, thorough and careful, and it includes quotes of source material.

Many genealogists, including Doliante, have concluded that there must have been some familly connection to the Gerrards, since Dr. Robert named a son Gerrard Robert Ellyson. But there is another explanation which seems to me to fit the facts better. _Early Quaker Writings_ by Hugh Barbour and Arthur Roberts says, page 607, gives a short biography of one Gerrard Roberts, a prominent early Quaker. I believe this Gerard Roberts was involved in early Quaker evangelical work in Maryland, either by traveling there personally, or by providing fledgling congregations with Quaker books. It may be that this Gerrard Roberts or books he gave were instrumental in convincing Robert Ellyson to Quakerism.

Gerard married Anne Myhill in 1700 in Henrico Mm, , Virginia. Anne was born about 1673 and died after 1727.

216. William Hunt, son of William Hunt and Margaret Person, was born in 1690 in Of, Randor, England and died about 1745 in Probably, Frederick, Maryland about age 55.

General Notes: Source: Everett Hunt, Prodigy RHDX48A, quotes "William Hunt and Sarah Mills: their ancestors and ours: Essays and Genealogies.", 1981.

According to a reference by Martha Wallenhorst, William Hunt came to America from England in 1719. Nathan came to America in 1725. There seems to have been a Tobert Hunt who came from England at the same time that Wm Sr. came, apparently they were not related. [This is not true they are brothers and married sisters.]

Everett also says this line is also detailed by Elaine Rowland in a manuscript published several years ago.

from page 89: "...William had some trouble accomodating to the "New World thoughts". He was called before the meetings several times, beginning on December 2, 1725, for his disorderly practice of imbibing in some rather strong spirits on occasion which was as traditional as drinking tea in Merrie Old England and Wales."

The following is the first page of Mrs. Vena Wilson's research.

ONE BRANCH OF THE QUAKER HUNTS

William Hunt produced a certificate an Abingdon Meeting, Pa., (Quaker) 1 month, 30 day, in 1719, from Radnor, a border country West of Warwickshire, England.

Abingdon minutes refer to him "late of Bayberry" a Philadelphia county, Pa. settlement made in 1635, Nathaniel, Daniel, Thomas and Wm. Walton, all from Bayberry, Glouchestershire, England.

William Hunt born 1690 in England and died 1781. Married 2-14-1700, Mary Woolman, born 1692, died 1785. Mary, the daughter of John, 1655-1718, of Burlington Co., N.J. and Elizabeth (Bourton) Woolman. Also the granddaughter of William Woolman who died 1692 of Glouchester, England. Mary Woolman's father John Woolman and her grandfather William Woolman came to America on the ship Shield, ship Captain Daniel Travis, in December 1677. The ship docked and waited until morning. In the morning the ice had frozen so thick and hard that Old William and John Woolman, the Captain Daniel Travis, and John Borton walked on the ice to the shore. This was at the head of the Rancocis River.

NOTE William Hunt born 1690 in England and died 1781. Married 2-14-1700, Mary CONT -flowing into the Delaware on the left bank. John Woolman was 23 years old at this time. Five years later John married Elizabeth Borton who was 8 years his junior, daughter of John borton who had walked on the ice from their ship.

John Woolman as well as his son Samuel were weavers by trade. John also was a good business man and was a very exacting man. He held important offices in the Quaker church and was a great exponent of his faith. (This information from "John Woolman, American Quaker" by Janet Whitney. Wichita Library.)

William and Mary (Woolman) Hunt were at Abingdon Pa. They went to New Jersey to Monocacy, Md. to N. Carolina. William Hunt was a strict follower of the Quaker faith and preached and helped raised money for the cause.

Willam Hunt and Mary Woolman had many descendants, most of whom eventually lived in North Carolina."

The above references to this William Hunt dying in 1781 is obviously wrong after reviewing the history of his son, Reverend William Hunt. The following message from Don Hunt, DONATLATL@aol.com, in 1998 clarifies this point:

"Your info on William Hunt the husband of Mary Woolman is inaccurate. He died about 1745 after his wife. They most likely died in what is now Frederick County Maryland. his son William died 1772 in England."

I'll include the following for the reader's consideration:

Subject: Re: Quakers in Burlington Co., NJ ?
From: Thomas Hamm <tomh@earlham.edu> Date: Mon, 23 Feb 1998

... Incidentally, William Hunt who married Mary Woolman was almost surely not the son of William Hunt and Margaret Pearson/Person. Our William came to Pennsylvania from "Radnor in Great Britain" in 1718, while this couple were married in New Jersey. Anyway, they were already on this side of the Atlantic. And it was William and Mary (Woolman) Hunt's son William who died in England in 1772.

The following notes were provided to me by J.A. Tolliver on 8/4/1999:

Most Hunt genealogies indicate that Jacob Hunt is the immigrant. However, this is a note I copied from Martha Wallenhorst of Prodigy (RFBR55A) on 5-9-92. Jacob Hunt is not William’s father. That is a mistake that most every Hunt book in our line has made. Everyone knows that his father came from Abington MM. But everyone assumes that it is either Abiington MM in Lancanshire, Eng. or from Abington Grove farm outside of Boston. This was a prosperous farm but never owned by a Hunt. It was part of the Quincy Estates. The Abington that William’s father came from still exists. It is the Abington MM in Abington, Pa, a suburb of Phila. He came to that meeting from Chester Co., Eng. Possibly with his bride to be. His name is William Hunt, he married April 6, 1687 to Margaret Person (Pearson) dau. Of Lawrence and Elizabeth Person. Margaret caem to the new world with her brother Thomas on the ship Endevor in 1683. She was born in Pownell Fee twp., Chester Co., England came to this country as a Quaker. They married in Burlington MM, Burlington Co., N. J. William died Spet. 6, 1694 in Phila. He is buried in the Friends yard in “Historic” Phila. The misconception that Jacob was his father started over 125 years ago when Mrs. Hunt published her husbands genealogy and stated that the only know Hunt to come to these shores was a Knight of England who was disgraced on the field and fled to the new world. He changed his name to Ephraim Hunt and married. “From this issue came a son Jacob who had a son Jacob who was the personal artist to General George Washington during the French and Indian War”. This Jacob had issue and his son had issue, Jacob. This Jacob had issue of 14 children. Yes, this Jacob had a William but this William married a Coffin from Nanctucket and had no Will in his issue. All of his children have been traced by other sources with the majority of them staying in Mass and upper NY. There is no firm connection between the two families.

240. McCaskill 14 was born about 1735 in , , , Scotland.14

General Notes: The MacAskill/McCaskill History 1770 - 1984 by Dixie and Andy McCaskill, 1984, Irmo, South Carolina, is a detailed compilation of many of the McCaskill descendants with roots in the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

That text says records in NC and SC show a John and Alexander, presumably brothers, living in Richmond Co., NC in 1813. The Minute Book of Superior Court of Law and Equity 1807-1815, Richmond Co., NC states that John McCaskill and Alexander McCaskill immigrated to America ten years before they were naturalized 9/2/1813 (date of immigration - 1803.) It appears that the two immigrated together and that they were brothers. This, however, is only supposition. Alexander resettled in SC (Kershaw or Sumter Co.) According to Superior Court records, both John and Alexander were in the War of 1812. Laurence A. McCaskill states that his grandfather, Hugh was born in Scotland and married in Ireland. Hugh's birth date is ca 1780. Therefore, he would not have been a member of the first immigrant family (ca 1770) and subsequent descendants of Hugh refute the possibility of his being a member of a later immigrant family. Therefore, since the first grandchild of Hugh was born in 1804, and the parents married ca 1803, it is probable that they immigrated to America in 1803 also. Therefore, it appears that the family of Hugh McCaskill is a descendant of John or Alexander mentioned above. This is definitely the second family to immigrate. It is also definite that the third immigrant family was not until 1810. Since Alexander would have been only 13 when Hugh was born, it is logical to assume that Hugh's father is John McCaskill unless, of course, Alexander and John had another brother or others immigrated with them in 1803. A thorough search of NC records, however, does not reveal another person to immigrate at this time.

The concensus of most McCaskill researchers is that most all of the McCaskills of the Carolinas trace their ancestry back to the Isle of Skye, Scotland. The MacAskill/McCaskill History contains a great amount of information about that.

In Sep 2006 Jane Harriss Naus <jhnaus@excite.com> posted a genealgy on Ancestry.com that indicates the parents of John and Alexander are Finley McCaskill and Rachel McLeod. You can see this at http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=janenaus&id=I6501.

McCaskill married someone.

320. Immigrant Dinkins .26

General Notes: Much of this genealogy is taken from the Leonardo Andreas Collection. The Dinkins folder contains 132 pages of information, some of which is described here:

Genealogical folders in the Leonardo Andreas Collection : collection of the late Leonardo Andrea. Manuscript, typescript, and printed materials collection in the possession of Connie Anrea, Columbia, South Carolina. Contents of folders vary from a few leaves to ca. 300 leaves and may contain genealogical correspondence, transcripts of Bible records, transcripts from public records, clippings from printed materials, pedigree charts, family group sheets, genealogical sketches, etc. Folders may also contain material on related families. Families are primarily from South Carolina but include some from North Carolina, Virginia, and elsewhere, especially in the Southern states.

This collection is available at most any LDS Family History Center on microfiche.

Andrea, page 58:

An exact copy of material furnished by Mrs. Mabel Cameron Stephenson, of Moorehead, Miss., grand-daughter of James A. Dinkins, great-grand-daughter of Lewis Dinkins, and great-great-grand-daughter of James Dinkins and Lucy Kendrick, to her first cousin, Miss Mary D. Parsons, and reproduced by her.

"Copies of a book which was the property of my uncle, John William Armstrong, in the Annual 1717
"David Armstrong

"We landed at Charleston on the ninth and tenth of the tenth month in the annual of 1717. My brother Henry, my brother Robert and my near kin, Rufus and George Armstrong, also then kame our strong fren Thomas Dinkins, James Dinkins, besides John Dinkins.

"We were alone. We possessed in entire sufficient one was value. My brother David was useful with building boat. My fren Thos. Dinkins the same.

"On the nine month, 1718, my brother Robert and my fren James Dinkins bade leave for Ireland. On the six month 1719--May God bless the morning-- they kame and my love companion and chil Margaret and also kame back James Dinkins & Robert with also females 1723 annual we again walk to Mecklenberg Co., Carolina. Sens we left Londonderry just four annual."

"John Rufus Dinkins."

This man left Mecklenberg County and went to Anson, where he died. It is not known whether he was born in Londonderry, Ireland or went there from Wales, but I believe he must have been born there. The Dinkins family originally came from Wales.

In addition to his sons, William, Sr., Micajah and Samuel, Thomas Dinkins is believed to have been the father of Joshua Dinkins, who also owned land in Craven County and in Richland County, S.C. This Joshua was the father of John, Lewis, and Thomas Dinkins, whose names, along with his, appear in the Revolutionary Index in S.C. along with those of his brother, William, Sr.; his son, William, Jr.; and William, Jr.'s sons, Asa and Samuel. This Joshua also had other children -- quite a large family.

"Copies of a Testament belonging to Margaret Armstrong at Good Hope neighborhood Church June 17, 1747. Margaret Armstrong Dinkins was the daughter of John William Armstrong and Ann, his wife, was a Kendrick.
"John Rufus Dinkins, son of James Dinkins and Margaret Armstrong, was born the 21 of May 1748.
"David Kendirck Dinkins, son also, was born June 3, 1751.
"Eliza Ann Dinkins, daughter of same, born April 20, 1751.
"Robert. Armstrong Dinkins was born Jan. 17, 1753, son of same.
"Sara Margaret Dinkins, daughter of same, was born Dec. 26, 1756."

(RCL Note: I do not know how she originally produced this material or the items which follow, but Mrs. Stevenson stated that she believed the original research was done by a brother of Bishop Chas. B. Galloway, who lived on the Mississippi Coast. Mary Dinkins Parson.)

"The following is partly true and partly from tradition:

"In the middle centuries there lived in the south of Scotland a great chief, known as 'Johnnie the Strong,' who had a large following of young men, who took up arms against the crown. There were a hardy, rugged race, accustomed to all kinds of exposure and danger. They set a defiance all laws and for many years lived in the low lands, a terror to the government. 'Johnnie the Strong' sent impudent messages to the king and challenged him to mortal combat.
He was loved by all his people who regarded him as greater than the king. Tradition states he at one time met hand to hand, a score of Troopers who attempted to capture him, but he defended himself against them all, killing two and wounding several others, after which he was called 'Johnnie the Strong. '

"John William Armstrong it is believed was the great grandson of 'Johnnie the Strong.' This is supposed to be fact, his Grandfather was betrayed, surprised and killed, as tradition has it, that 'Johnnie the Strong' was enticed by his camp and killed by the King while he was being held by soldiers of the King.

"James, Thos. & John Dinkins, it is supposed, were Welshmen who joined the Armstrongs in Ireland, having been driven from the country, so tradition states, because of disloyalty to the crown. Tradition further states that they were called 'Devil in the Bush,' which implies they were outlaws, it is claimed on account of the King imposing restrictions on their hunting privileges. Anyway, the brothers came to America with the Armstrongs, whose children intermarried."

It is quite likely that from these descendants of the Immigrant Thomas Dinkins, sprang all those who bear the Dinkins name in South Carolina.

Up to this writing - Nov. 7, 1952 -- this story just about covers all the information I have on S.C. Dinkins that would be of value to Sina Dinkins Mohr.

Here is another version of the same information:

'We landed at Charleston on the nine and tenth of the tenth Mo. in the Annual 1717.

[signed John R. Dinkins]"

"James Dinkins was married to Margaret Armstrong at Good-Hope neighborhood church, June 17, 1747. Margaret Armstrong Dinkins was the daughter of John William Armstrong, (great grandson of John of Gilnockie) and Ann his wife was a Kendrick. John Rufus Dinkins, son of James Dinkins and Margaret Armstrong, was born the 21 first of May 1748. David Kendricks Dinkins, son also was born June 3, 1749.

James Dinkins, son of Samel, was born Dec. 26, 1756."

"The following is partly true, and partly from tradition.

384. John Hussey, son of Christopher Hussey and Theodate Batchelder, was born in 1635 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts and died from 1707 to 1711 in New Castle, New Castle, Deleware at age 72.

General Notes: According to Marie Mimbs, John sold his interest in the Island of Nantucket to his brother Stephen.

Source: Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, John was of Hamton, now Seabrook. They were Quakers in 1662.

Source: Genealogies of Pennsylvania Families, Vol II.

He moved to New Castle, Delaware in 1692.

By deed of 1 Jul 1695, purchased three hundred and forty acres of land near New Castle, Deleware, being then described as "late of Hamp Town in New Hampshire, near Piscatoway in New England." His will was probated 18 Feb 1707.

He had a large family, several of his grandchildred were members of the Sadsbury Meeting of Friends in Lancaster Co., Penna., in 1737 and of the Warrington Meeting in York Co., in 1745.

According to Marie Mimbs, John was a representative to the Colonial Provincial Assembly in 1696.

From Borden's Hisdtory of the Society of Friends, page 54:

John Hussey second son of Christopher was appointed member of the Assembly before he removed from Hampton, N.H., to Delaware in 1688, but being unwilling to take oath he did not serve. After his removal to Delaware he was appointed Member of the Pernnsylvania Assembly and as Pa. Quakers were permitted to enter office wwithout oath, he was enrolled in 1696.

Another source, Plumstead to Clear Creek, A History of the Family of Samuel Carey, compiled by Ruth (Carey) Haines in 1969, includes the text of the will:

The last will and testament of John Hussey, of the County of Newcastle on Delaware, altho wake in body, yet competent and rasonable in memorie and understanding. I do give and bequeath to my respective children hereafter mentioned, viz.: I do give to my son, Christopher £00.s10.d00. I do give to my son Jedidiah, 0L.10s.0d.

Signed, sealed and declared in the presence of:
Henry Swett, William Dowgeres, Sarah Swett.

Newcastle, February 18, 1707, is the date of Register's certificate, at which time the will is supposed to be proven or probated. Either this date or the date of the will is evidently wrong. (According to the Pettit Family, p 122.)

Hi All,

Mention of Christopher Hussey farming in New Castle County, DE has inspired me to post some of the deed information I have about the Husseys there. Although there are few direct land transactions by Christopher Hussey (son of John & Rebecca (Perkins) Hussey), there is never any mention of a title of "Captain" for him or any implication that he followed whaling as an occupation. Linda

NCC = New Castle County. "Cripple" = a swampy, densely overgrown tract of land.

Abstracts from New Castle County land records in Books A-N (1660's to about 1743) on microfilm. Deed Book and page number are found at end of abstract entry. These are bare-bones abstracts tracing the division of one particular tract of land owned by John Hussey Sr. There are many other land transactions involving Husseys in the NCC deeds. The will abstracts, also very condensed to focus on land isues, come from photocopies of the original record or "Calendar of Delaware Wills".

Mentions: wife Esther, children - Rebeccah wife of Stephen Lewis, Sylvanus, Jedediah, Esther; and James Cooper, relationship unknown.

26 Dec 1734 HUSSEY/LEWIS - Silvanus Hussey, currier of the town of New Castle, NCC, sells to Stephen Lewis of Town of New Castle all right in his father's estate - land in New Castle Hundred commonly known as Jedediah Hussey's plantation which "Jedediah Hussey, my father late deceased bequeathed to me" by last will & testament - includes all of this estate here or in Philadelphia or elsewhere. This includes all horses, cattle & sheep, 2 mulatto girls, etc. Provided Stephen Lewis agrees to comply with my father Jedediah Hussey's will in respect of paying his debts & providing for and taking due care of "his poor afflicted son (my brother)" Jedediah Hussey. L:52

[John Hussey [the third in this line] sells his share of his father John Hussey Jr.'s plantation (approximately 1/6 of the original) to Stephen Lewis, who has already acquired all of Jedidiah Hussey's 1/3 share]

8 May 1735 HUSSEY/LEWIS - John Hussey, yeoman of New Castle County and Margaret his wife sell to Stephen Lewis, tanner of the town of New Castle 110 acres of land and marsh, part of a larger tract commonly called John Hussey's Plantation in New Castle Hundred. Bounds: Morton's line, John McComb's line, the side of the marsh, over the marsh nigh an old Dyke to a branch of Nonesuch Creek, Miln Island, Christiana Creek. K:353-354

[Nathan Hussey sells his approximately 1/6 share of the original estate, acquired through his father John Hussey Jr. For the first time part of the original 640 acre tract is - temporarily - owned outside the family.
John Stoops reunites Nathan's 1/6 share with another 1/6 share that he had already acquired (from Eliakim) so that all of the original tract is back in the family again.]

12 May 1735 HUSSEY/MCCOMB - Nathan Hussey of Christiana Hundred and Ann his wife sell to David McComb, yeoman 80 acres of land and 20 acres of marsh in New Castle Hundred. Bounds of 80 acres: beginning at corner black oak thence by metes & bounds, marsh. Bounds of 20 acres of marsh: begins at corner stake of said land, Stephen Lewis' marsh, Nonesuch Creek. K:338-339

16 Feb 1736 MCCOMB/STOOPS - David McComb, yeoman, of New Castle Hundred, NCC and Agnes his wife sell to John Stoops, cordwainer, of the same hundred, 80 acres of land and 20 acres of marsh. John Hussey late of the same place, yeoman, at the time of his death was seized in fee simple of a certain tract of land; he did on 28 Aug 1729 make his last will and bequeathed to his son Nathan Hussey with these bounds: 20 acres of Marsh or meadow ground - adjoins to land formerly belonging to Christopher Hussey dec'd, Nonsuch Creek which divides the marsh or meadow ground from Black Walnut; 80 acres - beginning at said marsh extending from said Christopher Hussey dec'd end line, Samuel Silsbee's land. L:58-60

[John Stoops reunites another 1/6 share (Eliakim's) to the 2/6 shares he had already acquired. Notice that this next deed specifies that this is part of the land Christopher Hussey inherited from his father, whereas the 1729 deed in which the first half was sold never mentions that this was Christopher Hussey's 1/3 share of John Hussey Sr.'s estate.]

20 May 1741 HUSSEY/STOOP - Eliakim Hussey, cooper of Town of New Castle and Elizabeth his wife sell to John Stoop, yeoman of New Castle Hundred half of 150 acres of fast land & 51 acres of marsh & cripple; by indenture dated 14 Feb 1730 they had sold 1/2 of the described land to Stoop and now they are selling the remaining half. By virtue of deed of gift from John Hussey the elder late of NCC to his son Christopher Hussey likewise deceased and also by virtue of a survey dated 22 Jan 1707/08 under hand of George Dakeyne then surveyor & a release annexed under hand & seal of John & Jedediah Hussey now likewise deceased, "brethren" of aforesaid Christopher. Christopher, father to Eliakim Hussey & to Judith, wife of John Stoop, was in his lifetime & at his death seized of a certain tract of land & marsh in New Castle Hundred. Bounds: Beginning at corner black oak on back line of late Jedediah Hussey, several courses of Bessey, Switzers path, Nonesuch creek, through the Cripple. N:97-100

[So, as of 1748, all of the original 640-acre Nonsuch Plantation of John Hussey Sr. purchased in 1695 still remains in "the family", with half owned by Stephen Lewis, husband of Rebecca Hussey, a granddaughter of John Hussey Sr.; and half owned by John Stoops, husband of Judith Hussey , also a granddaughter of John Hussey Sr. However, part of that land now goes out of the Hussey family - a 1/6 share of the original tract owned by Stephen Lewis is sold, so he (actually, his estate) is down to a 1/3 share of the original]

19 May 1748 SWETT & LEWIS/HYLAND - Benjamin Swett & Rebecca his wife (widow of Stephen Lewis) & Josiah Lewis, administrators of the estate of Stephen Lewis late of NCC, deceased tanner, are executing a deed for land sold by Stephen Lewis to John Hyland, late of NCC, weaver now deceased; administrators for John Hyland are John Garretson and Joseph Abraham. They are selling 110 acres of land & marsh commonly called John Hussey's Plantation lying in New Castle Hundred (excepting the right to maintain a road to and from the marsh formerly belonging to Jedediah Hussey deceased and then belonging to Stephen Lewis). Bounds: beginning at corner stake of land of John Morton standing by Christiana Creek, Morton's line, MCoomb's line, side of marsh, over the marsh nigh an old Dyke to a branch of Nonesuch Creek, Miln Island, Christiana Creek . Q:3-4

20 May 1748 HYLAND (GARRETSON & ABRAHAM)/MORTON - John Garretson and Joseph Abraham, administrators of John Hyland, late weaver, deceased, of New Castle County sell at auction 110 acres of land in New Castle Hundred commonly called John Hussey's Plantation to Matthias Morton yeoman of New Castle county. [Deed gives the exact same bounds for the plantation as given in deed of 19 May 1748.] Hyland had died "seized of the plantation", but Hyland's administrators had petitioned the Orphan's Court to sell the land because Hyland, who died intestate, was "under encumbrance of £100 due the estate of Stephen Lewis" for that land. Q: 59-60

[I have not examined deeds after this date to see how John Stoops & Stephen Lewis' widow eventually disposed of the other Nonsuch plantation tracts.]

==========================================
[Below is the only other land that I have a record of for Christopher Hussey, son of John & Rebecca (Perkins) Hussey Sr. I find no evidence in the deeds that Christopher Hussey, son of John & Ann (Inskeep) Hussey ever owned land himself in New Castle County.]

24 Jan 1697 GODIN/HUSSEY - Christopher Hussey of New Castle County buys a house & lot in the town of New Castle from Peter Godin of New Castle County (heir of John fforatt). Lot towards SW end of town, bounded by river, Wm. Peter Urich, Edward Blake dec'd, and Jacobus Urich (part of a lot of John Moll sold to John fforatt in 1688). B:154-5

17 Feb 1743 HUSSEY/DYER - Eliacum Husey and wife Elizabeth of town of New Castle, son & heir of Christopher Hussey of same town deceased are selling rights to some land to Robert Dyer. History of lot included, but no metes & bounds or more specific info given: Gov. Lovelace in 1669 sold lot by Patent to William Tom, .... John Moll sold to John Farratas in 1688, whose heir Peter Godine "son-in-law" sold the lot to Christopher Hussey on 24 January 1697. Now for £20 Eliacum & Elizabeth Hussey are making over all their right and title in that land together with a "Bank Lott" fronting the aforesaid ground with bounds as appear by Gov. William Penn's patent to Christopher Hussey on 2 Sep 1708 (recorded in Patent Book A vol.4 p.92).

His will was probated 18 Feb. 1707. He had a large family; several of his grandchildren were members of the Sadsbury Meeting of Friends in Lancaster Co., Penna., in 1737 and of the Warrington Meeting in York Co., in 1745.

Robert A. Hussey, 1993, indicates Rebecca was born Feb 29, 1635/36 in Lynn, Massachusetts.

386. John Inskeep, son of Thomas Inskeep and Unknown, was born about 1650 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England and died on 15 Dec 1729 about age 79.

General Notes: A source available is "Meet the Families of Garwood and Inskeep" by Ruth Inskeep, 1975. It indicates John was born about 1677 in Sadley Green, Staffordshire, England. Received from Pat Winterberg (Prodigy PNXB37B) whose father is a first cousin of Ruth Inskeep. (Apr 1992)

Page 9 of that text contains a section entitled The Family of Inskeep

It was not until the 13th century or later that surnames were generally adopted. Most often English surnames came about by a man being designated as from a certain locale or by his occupation.

It is believed this family of Inskip - Inskipp - Inskeep can first be found in North Lancashire where the village of Inskip is located. This village is seven or eight miles north-northwest of Preston.

In Charlews W. Bardsley's Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames, p. 418, he gives "Local, 'of Inskip', a manor in the parish of St. Michael le Wyre, Co. Lanc." In The Origin of English Surnames, p. 324, Reaney notes that "Many of them had strayed far from their original home, .... from Lancashire the Inskips of Bedfordshire ....." But it seems our branch of the family did not stray quite so far for they located in Staffordshire.

Was it the Staffordshire branch that changed the spelling of the name to Inskeep? Why? Why was the name changed to the spelling of Inskeep, but the pronunciation of Inskip retained?

John Inskeep, our ancestor who came to America, according to the inscription on his tombstone was born in Sadely Green, Staffordshire. His sister Isabell Jones, in her letter of 1755 stated she was the daughter of John Inskeep of Fooford in Staffordshire.

A detailed present-day map of Staffordshire does not show either of these places, Fooford or Sadely Green. However, southeast of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire there is Fulford and near by is Saverley Green. In Fulford the old church where the family attended still stands. There are Inskeeps living there today.

Hi,

Inskeep is a somewhat unusual name so I don't know if there are many Inskeep families or just the John of Marlton, New Jersey.

I descend from John b. (1677-12/15/1729) through his son Abraham (4/18/1712-1/16/1780) who married Sarah Ward (b.1722 d. 3/29/1817), their daughter Sarah ( 7/23/1747-4/1/1820)married Thomas Stokes on 10/25/1764 at Haddonfield Meeting. Thomas and Sarah lived in what is now Cherry Hill Township until 1798 when they moved to Philadelphia. My guess is that the land where they lived was played out (no fertilizers in those days). Their son Benjamin ran the farm but eventually he gave it up and moved to Indiana.

I descend from Sarah and Thomas' son William who married Sarah Laskey, their son William married Rebecca Redman, their son Elwood married Ella Roberts, their son Walter married Margaret Kelly and their son Joseph married Anna Dougherty, Joseph and Anna are my parents.

Below is an article I found at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, on the Inskeeps from the Moorfield Examiner. I believe it was published in 1906 but my photocopy isn't very good and I can't read the date. It was placed there by Raymond Bell who was doing genealogical research on President Nixon. John the immigrant's sister is an ancestoress of former President Nixon.

The most interesting portion of the article is a letter written by John Inskeeps sister from England to her nephews in America. She provides addtional information on the family.

This isn't the complete text of the article, if there is some interest I'll type it in.

Jim




From the Moorefield Examiner
THE INSKEEPS
by H. E. Wallace Jr.


A FOREWORD

The author wishes to insert here a word of thanks and explanations. The first to the many South Branch Inskeep descendants who have aided him in this compilation and especially to Mrs. Ida Wood, through whom the work was encouraged and brought to its successful termination. It might be well to also state that the folowing genealogy is but a very small portion of the entire which is hoped may some day be published in book form. The word of explanation is concering the numbers attached to each name. The first generation is numbered one as Judge John Inskeep 1: his children: the second generation 200 to 299; the third generation 300 to 399: the fourth, 400 to 499: the fifth 5000 to 5999: the sixth 6000 to 6999: and the seventh, 7000 to 7999.

___________________________

In the southeastern part of Delaware Township, Camden Co., N. J., and about one mile west from Marlton, Burlington county, is situated the original homestead of John Inskeep, the pioneer of the Inskeep Family in America. The county of Staffordshire, England, was the cradle of the race and the name according to Gentry's Family Names, signifies "An nskeeper, a landlord, and is derived from an inn, a dwelling: scipe, denoting form, condition, state, office or dignity."

History and tradion are both silent as to the why and wherefor of John Inskeep's emigration but his purchases of land upon his arrival and his immediate prominent position in the affairs of the colony proclaim beyond doubt his was a family of means, education and refinement. Religious persecution could have had no influence on this move of the pioneer, as he and the majority of his descendants were of the Church of England. It was not until the third and fourth generation that they yielded to the influence of the community in which they dwelt and embraced the tenets of Friends. But even this was only in isolated instances and with the antagonistic influences to this faith of the revolution, they rejoined the church of their fathers or its kindred faiths.

Burlington and Gloucester counties, the cradle of the family in New Jersey, hold to this day places known as Inskeep's". Such as the old mills, near Winslow, the marl beds and the graveyard near Marlton, but save in four cases,
the name has become extinct in the male line in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, though through grandsons of the pioneer who emigrated to Virginia, the family name lives throughout the south, middlewest and beyond the Mississippi.

Never at any one time since its establishment in America has the family assumed large numbers in the male line. This doubtless accounts for the small number of distinguished men; yet among them are found two judges of the Gloucester County Courts, one Mayor of Philadelpia, two officers of the revolution and subsequent to that time, many distinguished in the lesser walks of life, hardy, honest, kindly, God fearing men and women, the bone and sinew of the nation.

What little is known of the ancestry of the pioneer is derived from a letter written by his sister to her nephews John and James, sons of the pioneer and here follows.

London March 12, 1755

To my nephews, James or John Inskeep;

I have had a great desire to write to you a long time but never had an opportunity till lately, not knowing where to direct to you, or who of the family was living, for being at variance with my brother James Inskeep, I never had an oppportunity of seeing the letters which was sent to him by you and your father, who I understand has been dead ever since the year 1729.

I am the daughter of John Inskeep of Fooford in Staffordshire, and sister of your deceased father, and have living, one brother and two sisters; my brother James Inskeep who corresponded with your father and you, and has let me have several letters which he received from you in order that I might write to you - his wife is dead and he has only one son whose name is James - my sisters are Cathrine and Margaret which are married and have children - Cathrine lives in Staffordsire, and Margaret in London: and I have four children and live in London. I have a brother deceased in Staffordshire who's name was Jonathan Inskeep, who has left a wife and four children, the oldest of which his name is
John Inskeep.

I would be very glad to hear from you, to hear of my sister Ann, your aunt is living and where she lives.

This is the whole act of our family in England who are in good health at present, some of my children are grown to maturity and have a great inclination to see their relations in that part of the workd if they could have the pleasure
of hearing from them, therfore it would be a great satisfaction to receive an answer from some of you, you signified in your letter to my brother James Inskeep your desire of corresponding with the family, which I hope you will tak
hold of all opportunity to do - me and my husband and children and all our relations joins in love to you - from your affectionate and loving Aunt.

Isabell Jones

P.S. My eldest son is a pretty good scholar and has a great mind to come abroad if he could meet with any encouragement. Pray let me know what commodity is best to bring from London.

Please do direct as this To Mr. Jones at No. 6 in Bloomsberry Market, London.

To John or James Inskeep linving in Burlington county in the township of Evesham in New Jersey, or else in Gloucester County West Jersey near Philadelphia. (The original is in the possession of Mrs. A. W. Stubblefield, of Cumberland, Md.)



This establishes without doubt or cavil the father, brothers and sisters of John Inskeep, the pioneer, whos body lies interred in the old Inskeep graveyard at Marlton, isolated, neglected and forgotten by his descendants. There are only eleven stones in the graveyard, a small plot fifty feet square and the are as follows:

His tombstone also reads "He was born at Sadeley Green Staffordshire, Old England. ("Research of the gazetters has failed to disclose a Sadeley Green in Staffordshire. Litchfield however possesses a Sadler Stree, at this time of writing, also the birthplace of Dr. Samuel Johnson, the lexicographer, which at the time of John Inskeep's birth fronted on a green. A neighboring estate is also kown as Fulford, and one as Freeford).

The Pa. Magazine of History and Biography (published by the Historical Society of Pa.) has an article on John Inskeep, Mayor of Philadelphia in Vol. 28, #2, 1904, it includes genealogical material on his family.

The Philadelpia Inquirer, in its issue of Sunday, May 8th, 1988, in the real estate section, shows a picture of the original homestead of the Inskeep family near Marlton. The family that owned it were restoring it.

The Ann Inskeep mentioned in the letter, above, was an ancestor of the late President, Richard M. Nixon. She married John Hussey in Christiana Hundred (New Castle, Delaware) about 1703.

(A more detailed copy of this article is offline at C: Documents_1.)

In March 2009 Jim Stokes posted this to the Inskeep mailing list on Rootsweb.com:

Hi Folks,
I just wanted to let everyone know there is an interesting web page with information on John Iskeep of Marlton, New Jersey. John was born in Fulford, Straffordshire, England and the web page is sponsored by the Fulford Parish Council. In addition to information on John Inskeep it includes information on his ancestors as well as some of his descendants.
<http://www.fulford-parish-council.org/history-chapter10.html>

For those who haven't seen it there is a great article on the Burlington County Genweb page concerning the Inskeeps. Part of the information on the Fulford page came from the material at the Burlington County Genweb page, both contain information on the descendants of John Inskeep who moved to West Virginia.


John married Sarah Ward.31 Sarah was born in 1651 in , Staffordshire, England.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  John Inskeep was born in 1677 in Stadeley Green, Staffordshire, England, died on 15 Dec 1729 at age 52, and was buried in Marlton, , New Jersey.

193      ii.  Ann Inskeep (born about 1680 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England - died in 1733 in Christiana 100)

        iii.  Jonothan Inskeep was born about 1683 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England and died before 1755.

         iv.  James Inskeep was born about 1689 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England and died after 1755.

          v.  Isabell Jones Inskeep was born about 1681 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England and died after 1755.

         vi.  Margaret Inskeep was born about 1687 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England and died after 1755.

        vii.  Cathrine Inskeep was born about 1685 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England and died after 1755.


387. Sarah Ward 31 was born in 1651 in , Staffordshire, England.

Sarah married John Inskeep. John was born about 1650 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England and died on 15 Dec 1729 about age 79.

392. Timothy Jessop, son of Thomas Jessope and Mary Miklesthwaite, was born on 6 Nov 1651 in Fay, Little Rock, Waterloo, died on 20 Jun 1696 in Washington, Little Rock, Wetherbee at age 44, and was buried in Jun 1696 in , , Wetherbee.

General Notes: Source: Cleaver.

Timothy Jessop, known as "Timothy of Rawcliffe" was baptized at Penistone, Yorkshire, "filius nothus," illigitimate, child of Mary Micklesthwaite.
Friends records say he was born in Birdseye which is in the Penistone area. He died 6 month 20, 1696 and was buried two days later at Pollington, Yorkshire. He married at Pontefract Meeting, Braithwaite in Yorkshire 2 month 27, 1676 Mary whose surname cannot be proved. She has been called daughter of James Parrat of Fishlake and the daughter of John of Wales. Perusal of all Parrat records in Friends House, London, fails to reveal this Mary as a Parrat.
Mary was burried at Rawcliffe, Balby Monthly Meeting 6 month 30, 1719.

Timothy Jessop is first listed in Besse's "Sufferings" in Yorkshire in 1682 in a "List of Persons Long Imprisoned" in the County "For not paying Tithes" or the tax to support the Established church. He was imprisoned two years and nine months. Again in 1690 Timothy Jessup of Rawcliffe was fined 6 shillings for the same offense. Yorkshire Quarterly Meeting records show him in Peniston in 1694 where he was granted 5 pounds "for his travells to visit Friends Meetings." That same record lists him among the "Deceaced Ministers" showing hi date of death. His brother John is on the same list of Arthington, near Otley in 1718. It is interesting that these are the first records sepelled Jessup rather than Jessop.

An inventory of his good after his death indicates he was a linen weaver.

Timothy married Mary Parrat on 27 Feb 1676 in Braithwaite, , England. Mary was born about 1653 in Josie, Zella, Little Rock, Waterloo, died on 30 Jun 1719 in Washington, Little Rock, Wetherbee about age 66, and was buried on 30 Jun 1719 in , , Wetherbee.

Children from this marriage were:

Mary Jessupe Testimony concerning her Dear Husband Timothy Jessup, who departed this Life 20th of the 6th month 1696.

Something remains upon my Spirit in way of Testimony, concerning my dear Husband Timothy Jessup who was a Man that truly loved & fear'd the Lord, yea from the time of my very first near Acquaintance with him, I can truly say, it was many times as Meat & Drink unto him to do the Will of the Lord, & in the days of his Youth, when the concern of Marriage was betwixt us, his Advice was often to me, that we might live in that, in which we could freely give up each other, if the Lord required it of us, and many times we have met & parted and few Words past betwixt us, though several Hours together, but our Hearts were greatly tender'd by the Love of God, which was the Seral of our Unity, by which we were linked together in that Love which no Visible Thing cou'd break.

So dear Friends, ye that know the Truth,and are concerned in this weight matter have a Eye to the Lord and the guidance of his Spirit, and do not go on in anything that brings a vail over you but wait allways to know the Lord, betwixt you & all things; yea him to be your chiefest beloved, and when you can witness him to be so, if your
Friend be in the next place this is the Marriage Union the Lord will own for Justified from a living Experience, those that draw near the Lord he will draw near unto them and bear them up in the greatest of Trials; for though it was our Lot to meet with many Exercises in our Time, This dear companion did never murmer nor desire anything but the will of the Lord be done for he had so learned the Truth as in all conditions to be content and would always stgrengthen and encourage me, and wou'd often say if we were faithfull to our God, and did live in that, in which we were joined together, all wou'd be well, for never any People that trusted in the Lord, then came to be deceived, for all things work together for good to them that truly love and fear the Lord. And now although the sense of the great Loss and want that I have of so dear a Companion, many times makes my Heart fit to break, yet I am bound in duty to be contented, being well satisfied it is his Everlasting Gain, for though he was a Man very laborious, exceeding many others, alll outward concern was taken from him, and his Mind was taken up in Heavenly Meditations which made his sickness easy to him, so that he scarce complained at all, but in the time thereof many Heavenly words dropt from him, which are still a comfort to me, and above all that the Lord was pleased to honour him with his presence to the very last moment of his time, which was spend in Praising and Magnifyhing his Heavenly Father who had been his Support unto that very day. Oh my Soul in the sence of these things, is trully bowed before the Lord, and the memorial of this my dearest Friends, is trully precious to me and I believe will be to the Living, for surely his Labours of Love and unwearied Travels, cannot satisfy and be forgotten, for I am at wittness for him that it was as well in private as in publick Oh may the many prayers and Tears with which he had besought the Lord on the behalf of his People, and in the Night Season many times, I hope I never shall forget, but that it may be as an engagement upon me for ever to wallk humbly before the Lord, that as hitherto he hath been with us, I may still witness him to be helper; and by his Assistance I may be enabled to persevere to the end, and that when time shall be no more, I may lay down my Head in peace, as this my dear Companion hath done, wwho hath finish'd the Work appointed for him in faithfulness, and is gone to that Everlasting rest, that is prepared with God for the Rightsous, So being I was not easy in my mind untill I had writ these few Lines. I recommend them to my Friends, hopiong it may be of service to some, as an encouragement to serve the Lord faithfully.

(Signed) MARY JESSUP

400. Henley .

General Notes: From HISTORY OF CHICKASAW COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI. This is where some descendants moved.

"The Henley family stems from the immigrants known to have arrived in Virginia just prior to 1642 in York River County. Richard and Sarah Darby from England. The Henleys fought in the Revolution: Edmund, James Dunbar, William and Darby and against the Cherokee Indians in 1770/71. They are listed as members of the North Carolina Assembly in 1770/71.

The Henley men from Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi were all well educated, prosperous and saw to it that their children received a good education.

They were carpenters (builders), millers, merchants, tavern keepers, farmers, but the main thread that keeps running through this family was the love of the "due process of law". From Darby (1), the son of Richard and Sarah Darby Henley, who was a "Barrister" in Calvert Co., Maryland 1698 and prior to this the thread weaves in and out of each generation."

Henley married someone.

BIOGRAPHY: From Jack Butler Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, BIRTH AND DEATH RECORDS, page 102
Edward Mayo (d. 8-16-1724, aged about 47 or 48 yrs., p. 144.)
The Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy is a collection of records from the Quaker Meeting minutes. Notice that it says that Edward was 47 or 48 years old when he died in 1724, meaning that he was born about 1676-1677 - which means that this record is also for Edward Jr. Apparently, he died in August of 1724, and his will was proved on Oct 20 1724 in Pasquotank Co, NC. It showed that he was a Quaker. Will can be found in "Early Records of NC, Vol. V, Wills, 1723-1736"
Edward Jr. was married to Mary Clare when he died and had sons named Edward and Joseph, daughters Mary, Ann, Elizabeth and Sarah according to will dated October, 1724.
A will of Jan 1733/34 is for Edward Jr's son Edward III. He married Mary Jessop and it names Jospeh Jessop, his wife's father, as executor.

From Denise Clark:

MAYO FAMILY TREE

MAYO is the name of an ancient English family, so ancient in fact that by 1600 they had scattered to many places in southern England. They were in Wiltshire, Dorset, London and Bristol to name a few. It was variously spelled Mayo, Maho, Maio, Mayoe, May, nad Mayroe. This was due in part to the inability of clerks to spell correctly, and in part to differences in speech dialects. It began to evolve into its final form, Mayo, about 1650. The word Mayos generally believed to mean "son of Matthew" and is of English origin. Many believe the Mayo family came from the County of Mayo in Ireland, But no evidence of this has been found. The word "mayo" in that area was an adjective meaning "rolling green hills." No doube there have been individuals who called themselves Mayos after leaning that area, but that does not apply to this family. A search of records in the Public Records Office in Dublin reveal only one Mayo prior to 1750. That was the record of an ensign departing from service. After that time there were Mayos in Ireland, but since this particular Mayo family was already in the New World, no further search was made.

The Mayo Coat of Arms is a shield, the background color being red representing fire. In military application it signifies fortitude. The three coronets are gold representing the finest metal and used to show value, purity, and fineness, the beareresurpassing all others in valor. The chevron is supposed to have been adapted from the bow of the war saddle which rose high in front. The design on the chevron is black and gold-the lack associated with might and repentance and gold with valor. In ancient times, coats of arms served as a means of identification in battle, tournament, or as a mark of position or status: and through the years has become an exact art.

Notice that it says that Edward was 47 or 48 years old when he died in 1724, meaning that he was born about 1676-1677 - which means that this record is also for Edward Jr. Apparently, he died in August of 1724, and his will was proved on Oct 20 1724 in Pasquotank Co, NC. It showed that he was a Quaker. Will can be found in "Early Records of NC, Vol. V, Wills, 1723-1736"

Edward Jr. was married to Mary Clare when he died and had sons named Edward and Joseph, daughters Mary, Ann, Elizabeth and Sarah according to will dated October, 1724.

A will of Jan 1733/34 is for Edward Jr's son Edward III. He married Mary Jessop and it names Jospeh Jessop, his wife's father, as executor.

General Notes: According to Clifford Hardin's William Newby Family, William Newby, son of Ralph and Dorothy Newby was baptized 14 August 1637 at Easington, County Durham, England; William Johnston and John Newbie were witnesses. No record of this William Newby has been found in Dublin records. However, two sons, Nathan and Gabriel, and a daughter, Dorothy, are firmly identified in Virginia and North Carolina as children of William Newby. Both son Nathan and daughter Dorothy were associated with the Friends Monthly Meeting in Dublin before they removed to America. Nathan's certificate was issued 2nd of 10th Mo. 1684 from Dublin.

It is not known when William Newby went to Virginia, but he was there on 10th 5th Mo. 1683 when he signed as a witness to a wedding in Nansemond County.

Moved to Perquimans Co., NC, ca 1687.

The earliest proven NC Newby ancestor is William Newby and his 1st wife Isabel. William and Isabel Newby were active in Chuckatuck MM in VA in the 1680's. Both signed marriage certificate there on 10-13-1684. William must have moved to NC after the death of his wife Isabel for "Perq. 25 Mar 1701 Gabriell Nuby proved his Rights to 200 acrs of Land by ye importaion of Wm. Nuby. Gilbert Smith, Ralph Buffkin, Gabriell Nuby." William and Isabel both sighned marriage certificate of son Nathan and Elizabeth Hollowell. In 1704 William Newby purchased an acre of land from William Boque for use of the Quakers--later known as Wells MM. William Newby m. 2nd 6-2-1701 Jane Byar at Perquimans MM as her 5th husband.

Some of the detailed information, second marriages of children, etc, comes from Some of the Ancestors and the Descendants of Joseph and Naoimi (Dicts) Newby of Spiceland, Indiana, edited by Nancy Ester Hineman.

William married Isabell Turner. Isabell was born in 1630 and died from 1687 to 1701 at age 57.

405. Isabell Turner was born in 1630 and died from 1687 to 1701 at age 57.

General Notes: Source of last name: Esther Vawter, Prodigy MXSN08A, Feb 1993.

Since most other sources identify Isabel's last name as unknown, I am including a quote from the Clifford Hardin manuscript about Robert Turner, who could possibly be related to our Isabel, maybe brother and sister since they both died within just a few years of each other.

Robert Turner, at whose home both Ellinor and John Newby were married later removed to West Jersey where he died in 1700. Albert Cook Myres wrote about him in Immigration of the Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania as follows:

He seems first to have become interested in colonization in 1677, when he and other Irish Friends acquired one whole share of West Jersey, their land being laid out on Newton Creek, near the site of Camden, in 1681, and settled by Irish Friends. In 1681, he joined with the Earl of Perth, William Penn, Robert Barklay, the Apologist, and other eminent personages, in the purchase of West Jersey from the estate of Sir George Carteret. About the same time his friend Penn received the grant of Pennsylvania, and Turner became actively concerned in that project, purchasing 5,000 acres of land in the Province and subscribing 500 pounds of stock in the Free Society of Traders, ... he arrived at Philadelphia, 8 Mo. 14, (sic) 1683, in the Lion of Liverpoole ... took up residence and became involved in public affairs ... .

Isabell married William Newby. William was born in Easington, Durham, England and died after 1704 in , Perquimans, North Carolina.

406. Francis Toms was born in 1633 in , , , England and died on 3 Apr 1712 in , Perquimans, North Carolina at age 79.

General Notes: Source: Detailed TOMS genealogy is contained in The Batchelor - Williams Families and Related Lines by Lyle Keith Williams, Fort Worth, Texas, 1976.

Francis Toms who "came into Virginia about 1649" and was "age 77 in 1710," lived about nine years in Martin's Brandon on the South Side of James River (Charles City County, now Prince George County), He then moved to the adjoining county of Surry about 1660, and in 1669 moved to North Carolina. He was among the earliest settlers of Albemarle Co., NC. He and his family were accepted in the Society of Friends in 1672.

Another text that has a five page TOMS appendix is "John White of Virginia and North Carolina and Some of His Descendants with Supplements on the Families Jordan, Toms, Henry, White, Woody, Thompson, Perry & Leman" by Helen White DeWaard assisted by Virgil B. White.

Another source, pages 2-4 of Vol 8 of Virginia Magazine of History and Biography for July, 1900, says Francis Toms (sometimes spelled Tomes) made a deposition September ye 27, 1710, as follows: "Francis Tomes, Gent., aged 77 years or thereabouts, declares that in or about 1649 he came to Virginia and dwelt 9 years in Martin's Brandon on the south side of James River (Charles City Co., now Prince George Co.) and thence removed to Wareneck in Surry Co.---about the year 1664 he came to live in N.C." William Perry Johnson, late editor of North Carolina Genealogy, said Francis Toms was probably born about 1633 in England. A Francis Gray purchased land from Francis Tomes in Charles City Co., Va., on 17 Feb., 1656. After he came to N.C., he was living "3 miles from Phelps' house" in 1672, when the Quaker minister, William Edmundson, came to N.C. and held a meeting at said Phelps' house. At this meeting, Francis Toms and his wife became Quakers.

Francis Tomes Sr. was very prominent in government affairs in Albemarle Precinct, N.C.; he was a Provincial Councillor under Gov. Archdale, a Justice of the Peace, a magistrate, a deputy collector of customs, and a member of the Higher Court as early as 1683 until at least 1706. His name appears (as a Deputy) on many land grants given by the Lords Proprietor in N.C. In 1683 he purchased 260 acres of land from Charles Prows of Pasquotank Precinct. In 1687 he received a grant of 478 acres on the west side of Perquimans River "due him for transportation of 11 persons into this country." His land was on the head of Vosses Creek and was about 2 miles from present-day Hertford, N.C.
In 1693 he received 510 acres for 10 rights: "Mary Tomes, Mary ffitsgarret a servant, Joseph Ashley, Charles, 2 Indians, 3 negroes, Elizabeth a servant, in all 10." He assigned these 510 acres to Timothy Clare. In 1705 he have an acre of land to be used for a church building for the Quakers. This is assumed to be Vosses Creek Preparatory Meeting.

Francis Toms Sr. was married three times, the first marriage to Persillah ___ probably taking place in Virginia ca. 1667. She died sometime between 1679 and 1683. His second wife, whom he married 1683-3-2, was Abigail Bailey Charles Lacy, daughter of William and Grace Bailey, born ca. 1640 and died 1687-3-17. She had been married first to William Charles about 1660, by whom she had about 8 or 9 children. She had married second, in 1678, to John Lacy, who died 1682, leaving one child. Francis Toms' third wife was May Nicholson, a daughter of John Nicholson, who died 1717/1718-11-15. Her will, dated 1 mo., 30 day, 1713, probated 1717/18-1-15, lists the following: "Vesty Lewis, Rachel Lawrence, and Elizabeth, daughter of my brother William Nicholson." Joseph Glaister, well-known Quaker minister, and his wife were executors.

Francis Toms died 1712-4-3, per Perquimans MM records. His will (published in North Carolina Genealogy, Spring 1966, issue in an article entitled "additions and Corrections to Grimes' wills") dated 6 of 10 mo., 1709, with no probate, reads as follows:

"Francis Tomes Sr., Perquimans in N.C.---to wife Mary, pers. prop. and manner house and orchards, etc.--feather beds to be kept in ye porch chamber for God's messengers and ministers to Lodge In--also horse mill, shoemakers tools, etc. To son Francis, a slave; son Joshua, a slave. To son Francis, 640 acres acres on Vose Creek. To son Joshua, 400 acres. Three children: Francis and Joshua Tomes, and Presolo Nickolson, (personal property). To dau.

Executorys: two sons, Francis and Joshua. Sighned by name. Witnesses: William (his x mark) Boges, Mathew (his x mark) Albertson, John Stepney."

A codicil (not dated) reads "Since it hat pleased almighty God to take out of this world my Father-in-law (should be son-in-law) Jno. Nicols (Nicholson), my will is that part of my estate I have given to my daughter Presilla, now wife of Jno. Kinsely, to be divided--"one half to her and the other half to the children of her by Jno. Kinsely deceased (should be Jno. Nicholson), "ye windmill now building on ye plantation I live on for ye free hold my wife and children having ye use thereof sole freely for grinding their familyes corn...Signed by name. Witnesses: Fred Jones and Joseph Carron."

General Notes: This individual has the following other parents in the Ancestral File:
Robert Of N /ELLYSON/ (AFN:8J6D-MW) and Sarah /SPENCE/ (AFN:9LH8-BW)

Source: Maryland and Virginia Colonials: Genealogies of Some Colonial Families, Sharon J. Doliante, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc.

Dr. Robert Ellyson, born C1615-20, no doubt in England, died C1671, in James City Co.(?), Virginia; probably married in early 1650s, in Virginia, Elizabeth (____).

Dr. Ellyson first lived in Maryland for about four years, where he was a participaing member of the community, but it was only after he removed to Virginia, that he really became politically active and prominent. We suspect this was due, at least in part, to an advantageous marriage. He really was rather an amazing man, for he was all of the following, and sometimes simultaneously, physician (barber-surgeon), attorney, burgess, justice, twice high sherrif (in Md. and in Va.), sergeant at arms, militia officer, and member of a number of important legislative committees.

There is considerable confusion as to whom Robert Ellyson married.

The LDS Ancestral File indicates he married Susanna Gerrard. However, as explained in her notes, it is quite apparent that she married Robert Slye.

Tidewater Virginia Families, by Virginia Lee Hutchenson Davis further contributes to this confusion. That text says: There does not appear to be any conclusive evidence as to whom Robert Ellyson married. Most of the printed accounts state that it is generally assumed that he married elizabeth, the daughter of Dr. Thomas Gerrard. However, Dr. Thomas Gerrard did not mention a daughter, Elizabeth, in his will, nor did he name an Ellyson grandchild. Elizabeth Gerrard was named as a headright when Thomas took up land in Maryland, she was not named as a headright when he patented land in Virginia.

A printed account of the Gerrard family lists the names of Dr. Gerrard's children: Justinian (the oldest), Thomas, Susanna, Anne, Frances, Temperance, Elizabeth, Jane, John, and Mary (see Governor Garrard of Kentucky, 1962, pp. 184-185).

However, the William and Mary College Quarterly - Washington and his Neighbors does not include an Elizabeth.

Maryland and Virginia Colonials by Sharon J. Doliante, indicates the wife was Elizabeth ____ who until recently was thought to be Elizabeth Soanes, daughter of Henry (Speaker of the House of Burgesses, in 1660). However, this Elizabeth now appears to have married John Peterson, of Charles City Co.

For now, I will assume that either Susanna or Elizabeth Gerrard is the wife of Robert Ellyson. This is simply based on the fact that Robert's first male child is named Gerrard Ellyson and the naming convention of the time would indicate he was named after the maternal grandfather.

Robert married Susannah (Hannah) Gerard. Susannah was born about 1627 of Maryland, And, Virginia, England and died in 1716 about age 89.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Cecilia Ellyson

         ii.  Hannah Ellyson was born about 1641 and died on 19 Dec 1728 about age 87.

206     iii.  Gerard Robert Ellyson (born in 1671 in , , Virginia - died in 1756 in , New Kent, Virginia)

         iv.  (Son) Ellyson


413. Susannah (Hannah) Gerard, daughter of Thomas Gerard and Susannah Snowe, was born about 1627 of Maryland, And, Virginia, England and died in 1716 about age 89.

General Notes: There is some question as to whether this is the wife of Captain Robert Ellyson.
The Founders of the Maryland Legislature 1635-1789 indicates that this Susannah first married Robert Slye and second John Coode. The William and Mary College Quarterly - Washington and his Neighbors indicates she married Robert Slye, Esq., of the Maryland Council.

See the notes for Robert Ellyson for a more detailed discussion.

Here is a fairly authoritative discussion of the issue by Barbara Petty:

Subject: ELLYSON/GERRARD
From: Barbara Petty <bpetty@erols.com>
Date: Thu, 22 Jan 1998 06:55:24 -0800

Hello ELLYSON cousins.
Interesting conversation about Robert ELLYSON's wife being possibly a daughter of Thomas GERRARD. To add to the pot, I wrote to Sharon Doliante, compiler of Mary and Virginia Colonials about this and she sent me a copy of a letter from Br. Ambrose Carroll Moorman of St. Benedict, OR dated Jan.
31, 1992 to Ms. Doliante. In this letter he said the following:

"Dr. Lorand V. Johnson, M.D. now deceased of Cleveland, Ohio wrote several books on the Johnson family and in 1976 he assured me that Sue Terrel of Rockcastle Farm, Lynchburg, Virginia had the old family bible of the SLYE family. Elizabeth Gerrard's sister, Susannah GERRARD, married by 1683, Robert SLYE (ca. 1628-1670/1) by whom she had four children as her first husband. At any rate the original SLYE family bible reads:
Baptized on ye 1st day of December, 1666 A.D., Thomas, infant son of Robert and Susanna Slye. The sponsor's being his uncle Justinian GERRARD and aunt Elizabeth ELLYSON.'

"Now the only other
aunt Elizabeth' that this child could have had was his father's sister,
Elizabeth Russell of Lond, England.' It seems that this informaiton came from his will written on January 18 and entered for probate on March 13, 1670/1. This information comes from: A Biographical Dictionary of the Maryland Legislature, 1615-1789 Vol. II, p. 739, which was published using the documents of the MD Hall of Records.

(some omitted)

"The information from the SLYE bible was given to Dr. Johnson by Mrs. Wirt, who for about 50 years was a frequent contributor to genealogical magazines and he presumed that she had copied this out of Sue Terrel's bible. All three were mutual acquaintances. I have not checked it for the purpose of this letter, but Sue Terrel, like myself was part of the larger CLARK-MOORMAN-ELLYSON-JOHNSON connection and also had the family bible of Capt. Christopher CLARK. I have also an original document involving the GERRARD-WASHINGTON marriage, which was passed down to me. Without looking into my note I think Thomas GERRARD did have a sister Elizabeth in England. There was another GERRARD family in Virginia and I have checked into it to what possiblities it may have had and there are none. The family may have been either from a brother or 1st cousin of Thomas GERRARD. Among Thomas GERRARD's children there is also a JOHNSON connection as there is in the WASHINGTON family, but nothing is certain about it."

As a point of interest - an obscure genealogy: A South Carolina Family: Mills-Smith and Related Lines by Laurens Tenney Mills with addenda by Lilla Mills Hawes and Sarah Mills Norton (1960) gives the following (on p. 10) found in an old family Bible which was entered just after the American Revolution by Mrs. Elizabeth Allison (Ellyson) Erwin (Irvin). The record was copied in 1958 from a record obtained from Miss Julia Ervin, Rt. 3, Darlington, S.C. This genealogy states:

"This Bible (printed in London by Robt. Barker, 1613) has no section for births, marriages, deaths, but she used blank page to record the following:


My father, Robert Allison, passed 1772 (the name during long years has been/spelt, Allyson, Ellison, Elison, Allison, etc.) My mother was Mary Lide or Lloyd,/ (drt. to Robt. Lloyd from Wales to Penn. abt 1683.) My grparents were John Allison/and Elizabeth Matthews of Va. He being son of Robt and Ann Myhill. He being son of/Capt. Robt. Allison & Hannah Gerard of Maryland & Va. He being son of Robt Allison/& Sarah Spence of V. He Being son of - John Allison, Ellyson b. Windyedge county/Lanark, Scotland, who marr'd with Ellin Hamilton & came to Va. in early days bef./1625. The first ones of our family lived in Va. & Maryland/'

She then lists her immediate family (brothers and sisters and offspring) and at the end states that "Elizabeth, myself, M. 1744 John Ervin Sr. Our offspring - Elizabeth, Mary, Sarah,/James, Robert, John, Mary, Jeane, Hugh and two died young./ Both my husband and myself gave gratefully our time & services to our County at/beginning of Great Struggle for Independence. I nursed the Sick and John was Commissary/ Assembling Medicines & Equipments.
He never lived to see Victory, but I did./"

Ms. Doliante thought it "extraordinary that the person who wrote the Bible record, Should have Known So many generations of their family! I find today that most folks only know their father & possibly their grandfather! Especially males!"

However, if you check the early records of Va. you'll find for example in The Original Lists of Persons of Quality 1600-1700 by John Camden Hotten (repr. Genealogy Pub. Co. 1974) that on "A List of Names; of the Living in Virginia february the 16 1623," "At Archurs hoop (Archer's Hope)" there lived a John ELISON and ux ELISON and a Child (not named). Living "in James iland (James Island?)" lived William SPENCE and ux SPENCE, infans SPENCE and Sara SPENCE.

Since Doliante listed a daughter for Ellyson named Hannah, it might be that Mrs. Ervin's memory might indeed have failed her somewhat and perhaps she confused in her memory the name of the sister of Robert ELLYSON for the name of the mother? My husband's own Ulster Scot family in NC was able to give me good start on his lineage taking the line back several generations (at least three) from their own. I think that Mrs. Ervin realized that she had lived through a monumentally historic era in this country and wanted to record her family for all her posterity. The Bible surely still exists somewhere, but where it is isn't presently known. One cousin speculated that it might be in the possession of the Sen. Sam Irvin family. There is a collection of his records in the Southern Historical Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill. The Mills-Smith genealogy can be found at the South Caroliniana Lib. in Columbia, SC and a xeroxed copy has now been placed in the Library of Virginia.

There may be a few more entries of interest to you in the Henrico MM records. The rest of your data would show up under JORDAN I suppose. This would be all that I could personally verify.

I don't know how much credence we can give to this (probably not a lot), but he states that Gerrard Robert ELLYSON, son of Gerrard Robert ELLYSON who m. Anne, dau. of John MYHILL of Elizabeth City Co, moved to Chesterfield Co. where his will was proved in 1770. He named his three nephews, Gerrard, Robert and Thomas. It was his widow, who was the "sprightly old tit" aged 85 with three thousand pounds who m. Mr. William CARTER aged 23, son of Mr. John CARTER. It also states that Sarah was sister of Hon. John CLOPTON. Thomas ELLYSON, who lived in Chesterfield Co. was the father of the three nephews who were named in the will of their uncle, Gerrard ELLYSON in 1770. "The late Hon. J. Taylor ELLYSON, Lt. Governor of Virginia, descends from William ELLYSON, who had a son, Onana, who was father of Henry K. ELLYSON (1823 - ) who was the father of J. Taylor and William ELLYSON of Richmond." This looks a little confused.

By the way, in the records of Henrico MM, on p. 177 under the name GARTRITE (also at times spelled GARHITE or GARITE or GARTRIGHT in the records), a Judith GARTHRIGHT testified on 1749/50, 12, 16 in the case arising from a dispute concenrning the estate of Gerard Robert ELLYSON. In 1699/1700, on 12, 9 Ephm [GARHITE] contributed 150 lbs of tobacco toward the building of a new MH at Curles. Same date a Samuel [GARITE] contributed 100 lbs of tobacco toward the building. In 1703/4 a Jane [GERTRITE] signed the mtg book as a token that she was in unity with this MM now being held.

Also in a note I saved from Robert Martin on Prodigy Service in 1992 he stated that a letter from Mr. R.E.F. Garret, Member, Society of Genealogists, London, 14 Dec 1961 shows Peter GERRARD, was transported to Charles City Co. Va. 25 Feb 1653 by Ferninando Austin. He also stated that Henry GERRARD of Charles City Co. had a will dated 20 Jul 1689, probated 11 Mar 1692/3, sons: Ferninando & Nicholas, and dau. Eliz. BAYLEY, sp. of Jacob BAYLEY. Nicholas WYATT of Charles City Co. and John TIRREY of Surry were appointed overseers and Mathew ADAM and Will JENNINGS were witnesses.
A note from Jan Babb on Prodigy to Robert Martin in '92 stated: from "Marriages of Richmond Co" Rebecca, wife of Gerrard Newton was dau. of Nehemiah BLAKISTONE (died intestate 1716 St. Mary's Co. [Md?]). Nehemiah and Elizabeth were married 6 May 1669. Elizabeth was dau. of Thoams GERRARD, Esq (1608-1673) and his first wife, nee Suanna SNOW(e); she m. 2) Ralph RYMER and 3) Joshua GUI{L)BERT. She added that that book said to check Flowering of the Maryland Palatinate and Heralderic Maylandiana for more info.

Susannah married Robert Ellyson Captain. Robert was born in 1615 of Maryland, And, Virginia, England and died before 28 Sep 1671.

Susannah next married Robert Slye. Robert was born about 1625.

According to Early Virginia Familiies Along the James River, Volume I, Foley, 1974, Mrs. Frances Izord received 1036 acres in Henrico Co., Varina Parish, on 23 Apr 1681 for transporting 21 persons, including a Thomas Stanley.

Came to Hanover County, Virginia before 1686 when he had grants of land. St. Paul'l was later St. Peter's Parish.

1700, 2, 28. Henrico MM. Thomas [Standley] name first appeared when he signed a certificate for a meeting held in New Kent MH.

1726, 8, 1. Henrico MM. Thomas Sr. disowned for marrying out of unity.

There is some evidence that Thomas Stanley was born in England and traces back to King Henry III, King of England, born 1 Oct 1206, died 16 Nov 1272, and buried 20 Nov 1272 in Westminster Abbey, Westminster, Middlesex, England. This line is through Baron Strange. Several of Thomas' descendants have the first name of Strangeman, both in the Stanley and Hutchins lines. So, it would seem that the connection with King Henry III is possible.

The information to the link from Thomas back to Lord Strange is from David Lee, 2909 118th Place S.E., Everett, WA 98208 on 8 Mar 1991. (Prodigy ID: JSBN85A)

Here is an interesting message that sheds some light on the possible wife of this Thomas Stanley:

From: MaryaM5111 <MaryaM5111@aol.com>
To: CADA60@aol.com; Cunnin@worldnet.att.net; Stanleyd@amel.tds.net Subject: Old Thomas Stanley
Date: Wednesday, December 31, 1997 12:37 PM

I continue to try and get a handle on the old Thomas Stanley (Thomas Sr) - who seems to be constantly associated with Mary Holme as his wife - BUT can never find proof of this. What I am finding is this - he baptizes a daughter Mary (who later marries I think John Harris in the 1700's) in Christ Church in 1686 located about 45 miles from James city. Mary is cited as the daughter of Thomas and Rebecca Stanley. James 1688, Thomas 1689 and John 1691 follow closely and are on the St. Peters registry as is the marriage of Thomas and Rebecca in 1687 (I guess Mary happened before they got married. Now for Thomas to have been married to Mary Holme and her be the mother of these children would be nearly impossible unless he buried Rebecca, courted Mary, Wed Mary and then had children in less than a few months. Now for the interesting part - and where I think Mary Holmes comes into the picture - I wrote up this summary in a word processing program so I could cut and paste it into this note.

Although the recorded family histories on WFT attach Mary Holmes to Thomas Stanley as his wife and mother of his children, a register of the baptism of Thomas' 1st child, Mary, at Christ Church suggests that she is the child of Thomas and Rebecca Stanley in 1886. The baptisms of James on the 15th of Arpil 1688, Thomas Nov 23, 1689, and John Oct 11, 1691 suggest that Rebecca was the mother of these children as well. No other baptisms were located for his later children - but Thomas did become a Quaker and they did not baptise the children.
The marriage to Mary Holme is curious. The Stanley children married into the Hutchins family. Nicholas Hutchins married Mary Watkins (who was nearly 40 years younger than he). After the death of Nicholas she married someone named Holmes and then was widowed again and appears referenced in the Quaker records when Thomas' son James appeals to the church for help in caring for his mother in law - Mary-Watkins-Hutchins-Holmes. About this time Thomas STanley is being kicked out of the Quaker church for wanting to marry outside of the faith and buys 250 acres of new farm land for 25S. I suspect that James pawned the mother in law off on Thomas Sr. Thus the marriage to Mary Holme.

I also suspect that Thomas Stanley was baptized as an adult just prior to his marriage to Rebecca. The birth dates estimated at aroung 1663-1666 can't be proven. I did, however a court record in 1773 where he is being sued by Gabriell Harison for work dismissed - whatever that means in the Charles City County Court Orders. Now I rather doubt that Thomas is in court when he is 10 years old.

I am also beginning to suspect early roots of Nicholas Hutchins and Thomas Stanley to originate in Maryland and possibly Connecticut - and then they migrated into Va and NC. There are two Nicholas Hutchins in Maryland in the early 1700's. A Sr. and a Jr. With Nicholas being an old man when he marrys Mary Watkins - I suspect a former family somewhere - and the Nicholas connection seems like a logical lead to follow.

General Notes: Most Hunt genealogies indicate that Jacob Hunt is the immigrant. However, this is a note I copied from Martha Wallenhorst of Prodigy (RFBR55A) on 5/9/92.

Jacob Hunt is not William's father. That is a mistake that most every Hunt book in our line has made. Everyone knows that his father came from Abington MM. But everyone assumes that it is either Abington MM in Lancanshire, Eng or from Abington Grove farm outside of Boston. This was a prosperous farm but never owned by a Hunt. It was part of the Quincy Estates. The Abington that William's father came from still exists. It is the Abington MM in Abington PA, a suburb of Phila. He came to that meeting from Chester Co.
Eng. Possibly with his bride to be. His name is William Hunt, he married 6-April-1687os Margaret Person (Pearson) dau. of Lawrence and Elizabeth Person.
Margaret came to the new world with her brother Thomas on the ship Endevor in 1683. She was born in Pownell Fee twp., Chester Co. England came to this country as a Quaker. They married in Burlington MM Burlington Co, NJ. William died 6-sept-1694os in Phila. he is buried in the Friends yard in "Historic" Phila. The misconception that Jacob was his father started over a 125 years ago when Mrs. Hunt published her husbands genealogy and stated that the only known Hunt to come to these shores was a Knight of England who was disgraced on the field and fled to the new world. He changed his name to Ephraim Hunt and married. "From this issue came a son Jacob who had a son Jacob who was the personal artist to General George Washington during the French and Indian War". This Jacob had issue and his son had issue Jacob. This Jacob had issue of 14 children. Yes, this Jacob had a William but this William married a Coffin from Nantucket and had no Will in his issue. All of his children have been traced by other sources with the majority of them staying in Mass and upper NY. There is no firm connection between the two families.
Your genealogy should read:
William Hunt m. Margaret Person (Pearson)

Robert m. 4th month 15 day 1708os to Elizabeth Woolman Payne Mary m 8th month 5 day 1713os Caleb Shreave

The research prepared by Mrs. Vena Wilson in 1964 confirms this. See the first page her research quoted in the notes of the next William Hunt.

ONE BRANCH OF THE QUAKER HUNTS

William Hunt produced a certificate an Abingdon Meeting, Pa., (Quaker) 1 month, 30 day, in 1719, from Radnor, a border country West of Warwickshire, England.

Abingdon minutes refer to him "late of Bayberry" a Philadelphia county, Pa. settlement made in 1635, Nathaniel, Daniel, Thomas and Wm. Walton, all from Bayberry, Glouchestershire, England.

William Hunt born 1690 in England and died 1781. Married 2-14-1700, Mary Woolman, born 1692, died 1785. Mary, the daughter of John, 1655-1718, of Burlington Co., N.J. and Elizabeth (Bourton) Woolman.

Mary Woolman's father John Woolman and her grandfather William Woolman came to America on the ship Shield, ship Captain Daniel Travis, in December 1677. The ship docked and waited until morning. In the morning the ice had frozen so thick and hard that Old William and John Woolman, the Captain Daniel Travis, and John Borton walked on the ice to the shore. This was at the head of the Rancocis River flowing into the Delaware on the left bank. John Woolman was 23 years old at this time. Five years later John married Elizabeth Borton who was 8 years his junior, daughter of John borton who had walked on the ice from their ship.

John Woolman as well as his son Samuel were weavers by trade. John also was a good business man and was a very exacting man. He held important offices in the Quaker church and was a great exponent of his faith. (This information from "John Woolman, American Quaker" by Janet Whitney. Wichita Library.)

From John Woolman's Journal by Amelia Mott Gummeree 1922.

In the year 1678 John Woolman I (b. 1665, d. 1718) arrived at Burlington West Jersey, from Gloucestershire, England. With him or very soon after him came his aged father William Woolman d. 3-30-1692. Pg. 2. The Burlington Friends monthly meeting records of 7 mo 1-1684 say: John Woolman & Elizabeth Bourton (Borton) p'posed their Intentions to Marriage, it being y first time & y meeting left y to their Liberty to Consummate it as they saw meet in y fear of y Lord at meeting on 6th of next month.

They were married 8-16-1684. Elizabeth Borton was the daughter of John and Ann Kinton Borton, who in 1679 had come from Aynhoe, in Northamptonshire, England, with a certificate of unity addressed to Burlington from the meeting at Burton.

The following is the marriage certificate of John Woolman I and Elizabeth Bourton:

Whereas, there has been an intention of marriage duly published at two monthly meetings of ye people called Quakers in Burlington upon ye river Delaware in ye Province of West New Jersey in America, Between John Woolman of Northampton River, Husbandman, and Elizabeth Bourton near ye same place also in Province aforesaid. Inquiry being made no obstruction appearing, also ye consent of parents being had, ye meeting gave their concent unto ye same.

Now these may certifie ye truth unto all conserne ye on ye day of ye datte hereoff in our sight and hearing and in an assembly of ye Lords People ye said John Woolman did take and declare ye said Elizabeth Bourton to be his wife, and ye said Ellizabeth Bourton did take and declare the said John Woolman to be her husband according to ye example of ye Lord's People recorded in ye Scriptures of truth, each of them consenting or promising to be loving, faithful and true in ye capacity as Husband and Wife ye tenure of their naturall lives together.

In witness whereof ye Parties, themselves have first of all subscribed their names and wee also as witnesses this eight of eight month 1664.

The certificate is signed by John Woolman and Elizabeth Woolman and witnessed by 25 others.

Woolman was a witness to the will of his fatherinlaw John Borton of Hillsdown on south side of the Northampton River. John Borton asked to be buried in "Friends Burying place in Burlington."

Page 3. John Borton was also a West Jersey Proprietor, and is named by Samuel Smith as a Constable for the "London Tenth" of the settlers on the Delaware. From Samuel Smith History of N.J. pg. 152.

The desceased (John Borton) owned a part of Burlington Island and a thirty second part of West Jersey. The will is dated 7-28-1687. New Jersey Archives Vol. 23, pg. 47.

John and Elizabeth Borton Woolman settled in Northampton Township, on land which ran down to the Rancocas River.

The fact that the emigrant ancestor's house was built of brick and not of timber which places him among the well-to-do. The old house saw two generations born here including the first John's famous grandson and namesake. For 34 years John Woolman and wife Elizabeth lived happily on the banks of the beautiful Rancocas River.

April 1718 he died at the age of 63 leaving in his will all his real and personal estate for the use of his wife.

Elizabeth Woolman died almost immediately after her husband, aged 55 years.
Her will was approved 5-30-1718.

(Both John and Elizabeth's wills are on the microfilm.)

According to Jerry Bickerdyke (Jerrybic@aol.com) in 1997, Their home was called Hillsdown, and Mount Laurel twp is now at that same spot.

Here is an aspect I did not realize. In 1997 there was a discussion on the Internet about Quakers and their objection to slavery. Here is an interesting exchance:

Just a few comments on Quaker opposition to slavery.

A previous commentator here stated " No one person wrote 'the Quaker mandate to free slaves.' Instead, the various yearly meetings of Friends began in the 1750s to make rules first saying that members should not buy or sell slaves, then moved on to rule that Friends could not own slaves and must free those they did own."

It is true that no one person was responsible for the Quaker position regarding the immorality of slavery. Indeed, all such positions come out of a decision made by the consensus of all members of a Monthly Meeting or by the chosen delegates to the Quarterly or Yearly Meeting.

However, no discussion of early Quaker opposition to slavery should neglect to mention John Woolman, who began his journeys to visit Friends around the colonies in 1746 to witness against slavery. John Woolman's Journal is an essential piece of Quaker literature. My point is not to say that he was the first to oppose slavery, but he was among the earliest Friends to do so. It would be a shame for us us to forget his early example of how much an individual can do to change the world.

Here is something Joan Myers Young <JYoung6180@aol.com> posted on Mon, 23 Feb 1998: Speaking of the Woolman family, there was a great article in this morning's Courier Post (a South Jersey Newspaper) on the John Woolman Memorial. It is located at 99 Branch St., Mount Holly, NJ and for information about visiting the Memorial the phone number to call is: 609-267-3226 in case anyone is planning to visit Burlington County and would like to see history first hand.

General Notes: According to Jerry Bickerdyke (Jerrybic@aol.com) in 1997, Elizabeth Woolman is buried in the Quaker burial place at Rancocas.

Elizabeth married John Woolman in 1684. John was born in 1655 in , Painswick, Gloucester, England and died on 27 Feb 1718 in , Burlington, New Jersey at age 63.

436. John Cox, son of Thomas Cox and Unknown, was born about 1665 in Drayton, Berkshire, England and died in 1711 in Kennet, Chester, Pennsylvania about age 46.

General Notes: Source of birth, marriage, and children is Ancestors and Descendants of Jehu Cox by Wayne D. Stout.

The descendants of John and Rachel are also described in JOSEPH COX Ancestors and Descendants by Stanley M. Cox, 1955.

Robert A. Hussey, 1993, provided location of birth.

See notes for grandson Solomon Cox, son of John:

John Cox came to America with his parents in 1708. We do not know where they lived in England -- probably from some Quaker community. John was born about 1685 which means he was about 22 on arrival. It is believed the group landed at Newcastle, Delaware where they lived for a season. Later the family moved to Kennett, Chaster County, Pennsylvania, a Quaker center. This was their residence for about ten years. During that period John Cox Senior died, 1711. We have no idea when his wife Rachel passed away.
...
As indicated above, John was the son of John and Rachel Cox Senior. Nothing is known of Rachel's ancestry. John and Rachel were about 20 years of age when John Jr. joined the family. This means the parents were born about the year 1665. A tradition in the family says they were invited to Pennsylvania by William Penn. They should have known George Fox personally for the founder of the Society of Friends lived till 1691. The Cox family may have taken part in the first Quaker Meeting in 1761.

Note: The source of John and Rachel's children, their birth dates, and places is from Bill Cox, Eldora, KS, 6 Dec 1994.

Les Sutton, Houston, TX is in the process (1995) of publishing a book which contains a Cox section. In the draft text he indicates John Cox was born Sep 24, 1675 in Drayton, Berkshire, England and died 1711 in Newcastle Co. DE. He indicates the wife Rachel was born in England in 1665. He also identifies John's parents as Thomas Cox and Chrisian Matthews.

Sherri:

Many thanks for this info. In general it is consistent with the info I have. I would be very interested in whatever you have on the descendants of John Cox, son of John and Rachel. The best information I presently have suggests I descend from both John and his brother William, sons of John and Rachel As follows:

John Cox = Rachel Carr
John 2 Cox = Mary Harlan
Samuel 3 Cox = Hannah Wierman
John William 4 Cox = Lydia Littler
Joshua 5 Cox = Rachel 5 Cox (see below)

and

John Cox = Rachel Carr
William 2 Cox = Katherine Kinkey
Harmon 3 Cox = Jane Johns
Jacob 4 Cox = Hannah Moffitt
Rachel 5 Cox = Joshua 5 Cox (see above)

I am interested to see whether your information on the John, son of John and Rachel is consistent with my info.

I'd be happy to supply you with my Cox data if you'd like.

Best,

David

It tells of Christopher Hussey, his wife, mother, and father-in-law first coming to New England. It tells of Christopher holding many offices and being a substantial land owner.

An interesting entry is that 1659, 7, 2, Christopher was one of the nine purchasers of Nantucket, Mass., from Thomas Mayhew, for 30 pounds sterling and two beaver hats; "one for myself and one for my wife", as the deed says. It is not known that he ever went to that island; he certainly never lived there for any considerable time.

Captain Christopher Hussey of Hampton, deeded to his sons Stephen and John of same place, for 80 pounds, all his interest on the Island of Nantucket, "that is to say all my lands, arable land, pasture, meadows, woodland, all commonage, rights and privileges due unto me according to the purchase made by me; with all my cattle, neat cattle, goats or horses, all my stock that is on the island of Nantucket of what kind or quality or ever it be".

For the next fifteen years of his life, he held many important offices after the King determined to erect New Hampshire into a separate government, under jurisdiction of a President and Council to be appointed by himself.

Christopher held the office of Councillor, next to the president and deputy, for three years.

In September, 1993, at the Sutro Library, I found an original handwritten manuscript resulting from a computer search under the Hussey Family. It is Sutro F 72 N2 G36 1874 [Genealogy of several families who settled in the Nantucket region]. -- [1874?]. [92] p. ; 32 cm.

There is a section on the Hussey family. I will quote the beginning of that section. The manuscript was written in about 1874.

Capt. Christopher Hussey, the father of Stephen was born in the town of Dorking in the Co. of Surry England about six miles SSW from London. He made suit to a young woman by the name of Bachelor in Holland whos father had removed there sometime befor from England & was a clergyman and wwas then about removing with his family to America. He would not give his concent for the saidHussey to marry his dauter on any other terms than that he should remove with him to America, which he did and settled in the town of Lynn Co.
of Essex a Province of Massachusetts Bay N. England where the said Bachelor was minister of the town and in so early a time of the Settlement that the said Stephen Hussey was the second child born in the town, and the one that was born before him was born in the same week. When on the following Sabbath they were both carried to church to be christened the eldest was first presented to the Minister he put it by and reached for the other saying I will christen my own first. Hence arose that saying that has so offent been made use of.

The said Christopher Hussey the father of Stephen was cast away on the coast of Florida, and was devoured by Cannibals who were at that time inhabitants of that coast. He was a man that bore the name of a gentleman equal to any one that lived at that day. Christopher's wife's name was Theodate. Hence the name of Theodate Gardner wife of Ruben and several others in the Co of Barnstable, in Stephen Gorham's family.

... the manuscript goes on to describe each of Christopher's and Theodates children which includes the following about John:

John Hussey son of old Christopher married Mary Perkins of Hampton & move to Newcastle, Deleware and died in 1711 leaving fourteen daughers.

... Some of the handwritten notes in the folder are dated as early as 1824.
The latest one was a list of people weho celebrated the 85th birthday of E. F. Gard, December 21, 1874.

In a codicil dated 28 October 1685 (at Salisbury) "upon a considering of some dubiousness in the expression of some things in this my will" the common rights to go proportionally to the inheritors with the inherited land [NHPP 31:289].

CHILDREN:
With first wife
i JOHN, bp. Lynn 29 February 1635[/6?] [HampVR 3; "the last day of the last month" - the day of the month depends on the interpretation of the double-date, since 1636 was a leap year; note that the year chosen here would result in a two-year gap before the birth of the next child]; m. Hampton 21 September 1659 Rebecca Perkins [HampVR 74, 556].
ii MARY, bp. Newbury 2 April 1638 [HampVR 3]; m. (1) Hampton 21 January 1664[/5] Thomas Page [HampVR 75, 556]; m. (2) Hampton 10 March 1690/1 Henry Green [HampVR 1:78]; m. (3) Hampton 10 November 1704 Henry Dow [HampVR 1:58]. (On 23 April 1706 "Mary Dow of Hampton ... with the consent of my now husband Henry Dow of Hampton" sold to Hezekiah Jennings two shares of land in the north division, fifty acres, "given to me by my honored father Christopher Hussey of Hampton aforesaid late deceased" [NHPLR 5:197].)
iii THEODATA, bp. Hampton 23 August 1640 [HampVR 3]; d. Hampton 20 October 1649 "Theodata the daughter of Christopher Husse died the 20th of October 1649" [HampVR 557].
iv STEPHEN, b. say 1643; m. Nantucket 8 October 1676 Martha Bunker.
v HULDA, b. say 1646; m. Hampton 26 February 1666[/7] John Smith [HampVR 75, 556]. [GDMNH absentmindedly calls this child "Hannah."]

ASSOCIATIONS: The widow Mary Hussey who appears in early Hampton records is almost certainly mother of Christopher [GDMNH 364-65].

COMMENTS: In 1686 "Captain Henry Dow wrote in cipher in his diary for Monday, Mar. 8, that he was
at Captain Hussey's burial.' It is therefore certain that he died in Hampton and was not, as stated by Savage, cast away off the coast of Florida" [Hampton Hist 760].
All sources give Stephen as the eldest child of Christopher and Theodate (Bachiler) Hussey, and claim that this couple had married in England prior to 1632 and came to New England with Reverend STEPHEN BACHILER. There is no evidence, however, for placing Stephen as the eldest child, and his marriage date of 1676, and other records, argue for a date of birth in the 1640s, and so he has been placed here as the fourth of five children. Thus John becomes the eldest child, which is consistent with the page of baptisms, apparently kept by Stephen Bachiler as he travelled from Lynn to Newbury to Hampton, where John is the first child baptized, at Lynn in 1636. (This also puts the lie to the myth that in the first week he was at Lynn Bachiler had baptized his own grandson Stephen Hussey before the child of another couple.)
If John was the eldest child, then his parents need not have married earlier than 1635, and Hussey may not have met his wife until both were in New England. This would remove any evidence that Bachiler and Hussey would have been associated in England, and so any evidence that they might have sailed together in 1632. Since the earliest record of Hussey in New England is his admission to freemanship on 14 May 1634, we need not assume that he had arrived any earlier than 1633.
If Theodate Bachiler did not marry until about 1635, then she need not have been born until about 1615, although her birth could have been earlier (but certainly not so early as 1588, as claimed by GDMNH and others). Her given name is a Greek construct meaning "gift of God," which would be appropriate for a child born to a woman at the end of her child-bearing period, long after all her other children had been born. Aside from Theodate, the youngest known Bachiler child was Ann, who was born about 1601. We argue here that Theodate was born several years after Ann, and have chosen somewhat arbitrarily 1610 as her year of birth.
Savage and Dow have included a son Joseph, but this derives from an error in Dow's list of representatives from Hampton to the General Court, which gives a Joseph Hussey in 1672, a misreading for Christopher Hussey [Hampton Hist 566].
On 11 October 1664 "Mr." Christopher Hussey was bound to pay Jno. Mason, his apprentice, £4 at the end of his apprenticeship [EQC 3:202].

Christopher married Theodate Batchelder in 1629 in , , , Holland. Theodate was born in 1596 in Wherwell, Hampshire, England and died on 20 Oct 1649 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire at age 53.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Stephen Hussey was born on 8 Jun 1632 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts and died on 2 Apr 1718 in Nantuckett, , Massachusetts at age 85.

         ii.  Joseph Hussey Captain was born from 1632 to 1635 and died in 1672 at age 40.

384     iii.  John Hussey (born in 1635 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts - died in 1707-1711 in New Castle, New Castle, Deleware)

Christopher next married Ann Mingay on 9 Dec 1658. Ann died on 24 Jun 1680.


769. Theodate Batchelder, daughter of Stephen Batchelder Reverend and Ann Bate, was born in 1596 in Wherwell, Hampshire, England and died on 20 Oct 1649 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire at age 53.

Theodate married Christopher Hussey 34 in 1629 in , , , Holland. Christopher was born on 18 Feb 1599 in Dorking, Surrey, England, died on 6 Mar 1686 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire at age 87, and was buried on 8 Mar 1686 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire.

770. Isaac Perkins,34 son of Issache Perkyns and Alice, was born in Hillmorton, , England and died on 13 Nov 1685 in Hampton, , New Hampshire.

General Notes: Source: Genealogies of Pennsylvania Families, Vol II.

According to Donna J. Howard, he was a ship carpenter.

According to Immigrant Ancestors, he was brother of Abraham. Hampton 1639, bought a farm next Salisbury line, now Seabrook, from Rev. Mr. Dalton in June 1652 and probably soon moved there. Constable 1650, jury service often. In Jan. 1680 he deeded to son Ebenezer for support of self and wife Susanna, and died Nov 1685. Susannah was not a Wyeth. With her consent, son Ebeneazer sold the homestead in 1693 and she went with him and other children to Delaware, where her estate was administered in 1699 by son-in-law Hussey, principal cr.

Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, James Savage, 1884, indicates Isaac was of Hampton and a freeman 18 May 1642. This text also provideds the birthdates for his children.

James Savage indicated that twenty-four of this name (Perkins) had, in 1834, been graduated at Yale, fifteen at Harvard, and thirteen at other north eastern colleges.

NEHGS Vol 10, page 216 says that Isaac Perkins, probably brother of John (of Ipswich) and Abraham (of Hampton), was an early settler in that part of Hampton now called Seabrook, where he still has descendnats. He was admitted freeman in 1642, and died between 1683 and 1686.

Genealogies of Pennsylvania Families indicates Isaac Perkins, born circa 1612, was among the recognized founders of New Hampshire and was freeman, at Hampton, in 1642. Neither will or settlement of his estate have been found, but he and wife Susanna, possibly daughter of Humphrey Wise of Ipswich, are believed to have had twelve children, of whom five became constructive factors in the colonies of East and West Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. He died at Hampton, 13 November, 1685, and his widow accompanied her daughter, Rebecca Hussey, to New Castle County, Delaware, and there deceased in 1699, the administration of her estate being granted to John Hussey, 17 July, 1699.

The following is from http://www. hampton.lib.nh.us/genealog/d0003/g0000763.html#I10192

Isaac was reportedly a 9th and 10th generation ancestor of President Nixon. The very reliable Gary Boyd Roberts, of N.E.H.G.S., reports that the descendancy occurs through grandson, John HUSSEY, Jr. However, Noyes/Libby/ Davis, in their "Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire" (1939) reports (at pg. 364) that there were TWO John, Juniors, and that the SECOND one died before the age of 1 month. If the first Junior was still living (he would have then been 8 years old) and went on to adulthood to marry and raise a family, then how is it that a subsequent son was also named John? Scenario #1: Roberts (or his source) is in error. Scenario #2: GDMNH is in error. John, Jr., #1 died young, and John, Jr., #2 was the survivor who married and raised a family. Scenario #3: Roberts is right, and there's no explaining the choices of some parents when it comes to naming their children.

In the new book, "Schwartztrauber, Stewart and Related Families," (1995), at pgs. 601 and 609, Admiral S. Archie Schwartztrauber reports the same Perkins-Nixon connection, showing the descendancy through John HUSSEY, Jr., #1. He attributes correspondence with David C. Dearborn of N.E.H.G.S. for his authority.

Mr. Roberts also informs us that Isaac's grandfather, Thomas, was a common ancestor of Presidents Fillmore, Coolidge, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, through Isaac's uncle Henry.

Roberts, Gary Boyd, "Ancestors of American Presidents," (1995, N.E.H.G.S. & Boyer), pgs. 147-48, 167, 159-60, 161-62, and 241 (chart).

Isaac married Susanna Wise in 1635 in Ipswich, Hampton, New Hampshire. Susanna was born about 1614 in Hillmorton, , England and died in 1699 in , New Castle, Delaware about age 85.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Lydia Perkins was born about 1639 of Hampton, , New Hampshire.

         ii.  Isaac Perkins was born of Hampton, , New Hampshire and died on 30 Oct 1661.

        iii.  Jacob Perkins was born of Hampton, , New Hampshire and died in 1731 in Burlington, , West Jersey.

385      iv.  Rebecca Perkins (born in 1637 in , , , England - died about 1711 in , New Castle, Delaware)

          v.  Daniel Perkins was born of Hampton, , New Hampshire and died on 1 Aug 1662.

         vi.  Caleb Perkins was born of Hampton, , New Hampshire.

        vii.  Benjamin Perkins was born on 17 Feb 1650 of Hampton, , New Hampshire and died on 23 Nov 1670 at age 20.

       viii.  Susanna Perkins was born on 21 Dec 1652 of Hampton, , New Hampshire.

         ix.  Hannah Perkins was born on 24 Feb 1656 of Hampton, , New Hampshire.

          x.  Mary Perkins was born on 23 Jul 1658 of Hampton, , New Hampshire.

         xi.  Ebenezer Perkins was born on 9 Dec 1659 of Hampton, , New Hampshire and died in 1703 at age 44.

        xii.  Joseph Perkins was born on 9 Apr 1661 of Hampton, , New Hampshire and died on 19 Aug 1707 in , , Delaware at age 46.


771. Susanna Wise, daughter of Humphrey Wise and Susan Tidd, was born about 1614 in Hillmorton, , England and died in 1699 in , New Castle, Delaware about age 85.

General Notes: There is considerable doubt that Susanna is in fact the daughter of Humphrey Wise. The Hopkinson and Allied Families text indicates Humphrey's daughter Susanna married John Bursley.

Susanna married Isaac Perkins 34 in 1635 in Ipswich, Hampton, New Hampshire. Isaac was born in Hillmorton, , England and died on 13 Nov 1685 in Hampton, , New Hampshire.

772. Thomas Inskeep 20 was born in 1620 in of, Fulfoord, , Stafford, England.20

Thomas married someone.

His child was:

386       i.  John Inskeep (born about 1650 of Fooford, Staffordshire, England - died on 15 Dec 1729)


784. Thomas Jessope, son of William Alias Jessop Sonier and Dorothy Ireland, was born from 1602 to 1603.

General Notes: Source: Cleaver.

Thomas was born about 1602/3 and was baptized later, at Kirkburton 23 March 1616/17. He married there 27 September 1635 Alice Kay alias Wilson. No record of children specifically of this marriage has been found (children we have are listed filia or filius Thomas), nor is there a record of Alice's burial.
Thomas was undoubtedly the father of an illegitimate child of Mary Micklethwaite, Timothy, 6 November 1651. The record reads "Timothy filus nothu Mariae Micklethwaite, Bapt. 1651--Nov 6. This may be an indication that a Quaker marriage to Mary Micklethwaite was not recognized by the established church, or it might be, as recorded, an illegitimate birth. One Elias Mickethwaite was a witness th the will of Joseph Jessop, a son of Thomas and there was a John Micklethwaite, Churchwarden of Penistone in 1633. This shows some family connection.

Thomas married Mary Miklesthwaite. Mary was born about 1629.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Anna Jessop was born on 28 Sep 1645 in Penistone, Yorkshire, England.

         ii.  Joseph Jessop was buried on 18 Jul 1705.

        iii.  Thomas Jessop

         iv.  John Jessop

392       v.  Timothy Jessop (born on 6 Nov 1651 in Fay, Little Rock, Waterloo - died on 20 Jun 1696 in Washington, Little Rock, Wetherbee)


785. Mary Miklesthwaite was born about 1629.

Mary married Thomas Jessope. Thomas was born from 1602 to 1603.

786. James Parrat was born about 1627.

James married someone.

His child was:

393       i.  Mary Parrat (born about 1653 in Josie, Zella, Little Rock, Waterloo - died on 30 Jun 1719 in Washington, Little Rock, Wetherbee)


788. William Pease, son of Thomas Pease and Anna Beamond,.

General Notes: Source: Cleaver.

William Pease was baptized at Fishlake, Yorkshire, England 5 September 1619.
He was undoubtedly the father of William who was born about 1650 and married in 1686, since no other possible Pease can be found in the parish registers or Friends records.

William married someone.

His child was:

394       i.  William Pease (born about 1650 of Braithwaite, Yorkshire, England - buried on 22 Mar 1693 in Fishlake, Yorkshire, England)


790. William Carniley was born of Wath-On-Dearn.

William married someone.

His child was:

395       i.  Ann (Pearson) Carnally (born of West Melton, , England)


792. John Small .

General Notes: According to the Cleaver text, John procured a certificate at Perquimans Monthly Meeting 9 mo. 3, 1736 to go to Virginia to marry Rebecca Moore, and on 9 mo. 20, 1737 they moved to Core Sound meeting in Carteret County, N.C. A child was Rachel who m. Joshua Perisho at Pasquotank Monthly Meeting, N.C. 5 mo. 14, 1755.

John married Rebecca Moore.

John next married Ann Grove.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Benjamin Small was born of Chuckatuck, , Virginia.

396      ii.  John Small (born in 1664 in , , , Wales - died on 25 Dec 1688 in Elizabeth River, Nansemond, Virginia)

        iii.  Matthew Small


793. Ann Grove .

General Notes: Cleaver is uncertain as to the name of Grove.

The book, "New England Marriages, Prior to 1700" by Clarence Almon Torrey, states: John Small (1716-) and Ann (Grove?), Salem.

Ann married John Small.

794. Thomas Hollowell Sr. son of William Hollowell and Unknown, was born about 1625 in , Lancashire, England and died in 1687 in Lower Mm, Chuckatuck, Nansemond, Norfolk, Virginia about age 62.

In April of 1649 Thomas and his family, Alce and two small children Sarah and Thomas were transported to the Virginia Colony by Stephen Gill. They settled on the west side of Western Branch of the Elizabeth River in what was called Lower Norfolk county. In order to encourage settlement in the colony, patents of fifty acres were made for each person "transported at his own cost". After Thomas and his family were so "transported", he apparently arranged for passage of friends or indentured servants totalling thirteen people, thus he was granted from 11 January 1652 through 27 September 1680, six hundred fifty acres.

The Society of Friends was introduced into Virginia in 1656 by the missionary Elizabeth Harris of London. She was followed by a number of others and George Fox made his memorable trip in 1672. Although there was no specific law against Quakers prior to 1660, the Colony generally followed England and New England in making life difficult and dangerous for Friends. In 1660 when the Royalist party returned, Sir William Berkeley, an inveterate foe of Quakerism, was appointed Governor of Virginia and the first act of the assembly was the infamous law directed against Quakers which began "Whereas, there is an unreasonable and turbulent sort of people commonly called Quakers who contrary to law, do daily gather unto them unlawful assemblies and congregations of people, teaching and publishing lies, miracles, false visions, prophecies and doctrines, which have influence upon the communities of men both ecclesiastical and civil ... leaving it arbitrarty to every vain and vicious person whether men shall be safe, laws established, offenders punished and governor's rule, therefore ... etc." Stiff penalties were set including fines for captains whose ships should bring Quakers to Virginia. Meetings were broken up, property confiscated, people imprisoned and whipped. Sometimes the legal authorities led these assaults, but often mobs of bigots started the difficulties. But Quakers continued to organize. George Fox's organizing letter names the house of Thomas Hollowell as a place of General Meeting and in 1678 Alice Hollowell's house of Elizabeth River was cited as a meeting place for Chuckatuck meetings. Thomas and Alice were original members of Chuckatuck meeting and both of them were named elders.

According to Vikki Highfield, who is doing very serious research in the Hollowell line in 1992, Lucy Elliot Hollowell, author of The Hollowells, and others believed that Thomas and Alice were married in England, as were their two oldest children. Vikki H. does not - she indicates that Thomas Hollowell was transported by Steven Gill in 1647, for which Steven Gill received land in Your county NC. The York county records are in very bad shape and a lot are missing, but if Thomas was transported it would mean tha his passage was paid for by Steven Gill, therefore he would be indebted to him for at least 7 years.

In Nell Nugent's book, "Cavaliers and Pioneers" she states that many of the land patents were recorded after the fact. In other words, later than the actual time of immigration, which, if true would mean that Thomas was here at an earlier date than 1647. Also, since they received 50 acres of land for each "headright", it is unlikely that Alice and 2 children would not have been listed as passengers. The first record I can find of Thomas in Norfolk Co., VA is in Oct. 1650. As I said in my earlier message, I am less concerned with who their parents are, at this point, than I am straightening out their descendants.

Once that has been established with proof, then I (Vikki H.) will work on their parentage.

Here is an interesting story posted on the GEnie Genealogy BBS by Harold Cave on 31 October 1992:

The following is taken from "Genealogy Sources" (by Riker) and is a compilation of articles from the Indiana Magazine of History.

The author of the article is or was Lester D Prewitt from Iowa.

THE HOLLOWELL FAMILY

There is a legend which relates that in the seventeenth century century three Hallowell brothers came to America from England.

Two of them settled in Pennsylvania, the other going farther south. The latter was a very loud and forceful preacher. The people insisted on writing his name HOLLOWELL instead of HALLOWELL and the descendants sill spell the name with an 'o' in the first syllable.

Thomas Hollowell, second of the name, son of John and Sarah Hollowell, of Norfolk County, Virginia, was born on December 4, 1739, and married Mary Peele (Pelle), daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Peele. The ceremony took place on December 7, 1760, in Quaker meeting in Northampton County, North Carolina. Thomas came to Orange County, Indiana, in 1812 and died prior to 1830.

John Hollowell, father of the second Thomas Hollowell, died in 1751 or 1752 in Norfolk County, Virginia; his will was proved April 16, 1752 (recorded in Will Book 1f, p.246). The will of John Hollowell, husband of Sarah Rountree, mentions a cousin Thomas, and a brother Thomas, and children (Rachel Copeland, Mary, Sarah, Rachel, John, and Thomas). In Will Book 5f of Norfolk County, Virginia, are recorded wills of two Thomas Hollowells--one of them dated June 16, 1793, probated September 15, 1693, mentions children (Thomas, John, William, Elizabeth, Katherine, and Luke). The other will dated March 15, 1686, probated May 17, 1687, mentions a wife Alice, and children: Edmond, Thomas, Henry, Joseph, Benjamin, John, Sarah, Elizabeth and Alice. Sarah, the wife of the first John Hollowell was the daughter of Moses and Sarah Rountree. Moses died in Perquimans County, North Carolina in 1755. His will, made on July 21, 1755, mentions his wife, Sarah, and children: Sarah, Hannah, Ledy and Ann. The will of his daughter Hannah, probated in 1759, mentions sisters Sarah and Ledy, and is witnessed by Joe and Abner Hollowell.

Mary Peele, wife of the second Thomas Hollowell was born on February 2, 1742 (o.s.) and died on Janjuary 11, 1813. She was the daughter of Robert Peele (or Peelle) who was born on June 29, 1709 and died on July 13, 1782, in Northampton Co, North Carolina. Robert married Elizabeth Edgerton and the moved from Nansemond County, VA to Northampton Co, NC in 1742. Elizabeth died April 26, 1749. Robert Peele Jr, was a son of Robert and Judith Peele.

Judith's will was probated in August 1756 in Northampton Co. A Robert Peele is listed as having contributed to the cause of American liberty during the Rev War.

The marriage of Thomas Hollowell and Mary Peele is recorded as follows: "1760, 12, 7. Thomas of Perquimans Co., s. John and Sarah - Colony of VA, Co of Norfolk, m. Mary Peele, in Rick (sic) Square NH (Northampton Co)".

In 1932 the family bible of Thomas Hollowell was found in an attic at Paoli, Orange Co, IN and is now in the possession of Joseph A Hall, a gggson. Nothing is recorded of John and Sarah Hollowell save that they lived in Norfolk Co, VA and were the parents of Thomas Hollowell who lived in NC. The Bible records the death of the wife of Thomas as follows: "Mary Hollowell, wife of Thomas Hollowell, late of North Carolina, but now of Indiana Territory, departed this life the 11th day of the first month, of 1813, at about 8 or 9 o'clock at night, aged 70 years and 9 months lacking 2 days."

The remainder of the article is a list of their children and too numerous to type in now - but if anyone is interested I will try to enter the children and marriages (another six pages).
My interest in the Hollowells is that two of Thomas's sons married Phebe and Elizabeth COX (ancestors of my wife) namely John and Robert Hollowell. One of Robert's sons Nathan had a son Joseph Hollowell who m. Deborah Dixon, also an ancestor of my wife. Wish I could give more on the name but tuckered out now. I don't get on Genie too often - once a week but I will be glad to send any info along if someone is interested.

(Forgot to mention that my research on my wife's ancestors are 90% in INDIANA - The Hollowells above came to Indiana are at least the majority did).

General Notes: Source: Roger Smith at WorldConnect Project on Rootsweb.com 2001 BIOGRAPHY: In 1694 Edward Mayo received permission from Perquimans Co., NC Monthly Meeting.

BIOGRAPHY: From: Denise Mayo Clark
Edward Mayo Sr. 1,2 was born about 1650 in Whiltshire, England. He immigrated about 1670 to VA. He was mentioned in will of father-in-law, George Maags on Jun 14, 1677 in Barbados. 3 He emigrated in 1684 to Perquimans Co, NC.

Edward Mayo, Sr. married 2 Sep 1666 Sarah Maags (Daughter of George & Ann Meggs) in Christ Church Parish, Barbados (Barbados was/is divided into parrishes instead of counties).
Sarah and he are mentioned in the will of his father-in-law, George Maage, dated 14 Jun 1677 in Barbados.

BIOGRAPHY: Reference to V. Mayo Bundy's Book "The Descendants of William And Elizabeth Bundy of Rhode Island and North Carolina."

BIOGRAPHY: from Jack Butler
Edward Sr. definitely was a Quaker before his father-in-law George Maggs died in Barbados. In his will, George Maggs/Meggs asked that Edward be allowed to assume the duties of administrator of George's estate without swearing an oath before the court. It was against Quaker rules to make oaths. I agree that Edward was not born a Quaker - none of the other Mayos seem to have been Quakers in England. If he was not a Quaker born, he certainly became one in Barbados.

BIOGRAPHY: from Jack Butler I found no will or other record of Edward Sr's death, but the last record of any kind that I found for him was 1700/1701. I think it likely that he died shortly after that.

Marriage 1 Sarah MAGGS b: Abt 1650
Married: 2 SEP 1666 in Christ Church Parish,Barbados Note: Barbados was/is divided into parrishes instead of counties; being married in Christ Church Parrish has nothing to do with being married in a Church of England Church. Researchers assume they were married in the Quaker faith. Sarah's sister, Mary did marry outside the faith, and she was pretty much disowned by her father Geo. Maggs, according to Ollie K. Mayo.

According to a file posted by Kevin Kelly <mailto:ktkelly@nightowl.net> <ktkelly@nightowl.net> on Worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb.com: The following was taken from an article on the Mayo Family of North Carolina, compiled by Hugh B. Johnston, Jr., and William Perry Johnson, as found in the Spring/Summer 1971 issue of "North Carolina Genealogy," p.2617- 2622. See this article for additional details and sources. "Edward Mayo, Esquire, settled by 1684 in Perquimans County, NC, and was from the beginning an active and respected member both of the Colony and of the Quaker Meeting. His parentage and ancestry have not yet been proven, but he was probably the immigrant ancestor, and may well be a scion of the ancient and respectable Mayow family of Wiltshire, England. On the first Monday in February 1693/4, Edward Mayo proved thirteen head rights for the taking up of land (50 acres per person): Edward Mayo, Sr., Edward Mayo, Jr., Sarah Mayo, Ann Mayo, Elizabeth Mayo, John Nixon, Em Nixon, Ann Nixon, Samuel Pike, Africa Pike, and three slaves. Em Nixon and the two Pikes were natives of England, where the father of the latter had died in 1681. It is estimated that Edward Mayo, Sr., was born about 1650, married (first) about 1670, and died late in 1700 or shortly thereafter. The Rent Roll of Albemarle (actual title: "Rent Roll of land upon Record according to their Several Precincts in Albemarle County with ye Rent of 2 per 100 acres"), undated, but around 1696, listed: "Edward Mayo, Pascotank, 277 acres." The very last record located for Edward Mayo was dated 1700 and mentioned Edward Mayo as a juror. The foregoing list of head rights proven by Edward Mayo in 1693/4 would indicate that he was a widower at the time he came into North Carolina. A "Hephsibah Mayo" and a Sarah Mayo appear on record and one or both are wives/daughters of Edward. A torn page in the Berkelely Parish Register, which was omitted by Hathaway, showed that "Hephsibah Mayo y---- (torn) died middle or late 1680's." A Sarah Mayo was a witness to the 1689/90 deed from Thomas and Alice Long to Edward Mayo, and this was several months after Edward's daughter Sarah had married. However, this Sarah could scarcely be other than Edward's daughter; perhaps there is a discrepancy in dates somewhere, and it is interesting that Edward later married the Em Nixon who also witnessed the 1689/90 deed. About 1693 Edward Mayo, Sr., married Em Nixon, already twice widowed, but had no children by her. The four known children of Edward Mayo, Sr., appear to have all been by his first wife, whose identity is at present unknown. Em Mayo, last wife of Edward Mayo, Sr., died sometime between 1694 and 1702. From loose papers in the courthouse at Edenton: "Hugh McGregory and wife Africa, Administrator of Em Mayo, late wife of Edward Mayo deceased (no date). There is evidence that Edward held the office of Clerk of Court in Albemarle variously from August 2, 1688, until August 16, 1698. At a Court held in Perquimans Precinct on the first Monday in May, 1693, the following record appeared: "I will well and truly as Clarke of this Court enter all such orders as shall be directed to me, and will be truly faithful in all such records as shall be committed to me in charge, I will be secret in what shall be required of me by this Court to be kept and according to the best of my skill and knowledge execute the office aforesaid so help me God. Edward Mayo." On February 20, 1693/4, Edward Mayo was named executor of the will of ex-Governor Thomas Miller of Pasquotank Precinct. During the same Court he probated the will of ex-Governor Seth Sothell of Albemarle County. No will or administration has been found for Edward Mayo, Sr., probably due to the loss of so many North Carolina records in the 1600's and early 1700's."

Edward married Sarah Maggs 35 on 2 Sep 1666 in Christ Church Ch, Barbados. Sarah was born about 1650 in Gloucester, England and died on 16 Oct 1724 in , Pasquotank, North Carolina about age 74.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Sarah Mayo was born in 1670 in Barbados and died about 1729 in , Pasquotank, North Carolina about age 59.

         ii.  Elizabeth Mayo was born in 1670 in Barbados and died in Jun 1716 in , Pasquotank, North Carolina at age 46.

        iii.  Ann Mayo was born in 1675 in Barbados and died about 1719 in , Pasquotank, North Carolina about age 44.

402      iv.  Edward Mayo 32 (born about 1676 in Barbados, West Indies - died on 30 Nov 1724 in , Pasquotank, North Carolina)

Edward next married Emma Blount after 1688 in North Carolina. Emma was born about 1650 in Wilshire, England and died before 1694 in North Carolina.

THE NEWBY EXCURSUS

The ancestors of the Quaker Newbys of Virginia and North Carolina lived in England prior to their removal to Ireland in the middle 1600's. In the early 1600's the Newbys lived in County Northcumberland, England (which county lay along the border between Scotland and England), and in County Durham, England, which adjoins North Cumberland on the south.)

Ralph Newby born probably very early 1600's in England died 3rd month 1682. "Ralph Newby, late of Dublin, that came from the Bishoprick of Durham," was buried at Friends' burial place in Stephens Green, 18th of 3rd month 1682 in or near Dublin, Ireland. Married probably middle 1630's in England and went to Ireland in 1662. Dorothy ---, b. about 1611, probably in England, d. 10th month 1711. "Dorothy Newby, mother-in-law of William Norris aforsaid this data followed the list of Norris children, being very aged--some avers one hundred years--deceased at the home of her son-in-law and was buried at Friends burial place near Stephens Green, 14 of 10 mo. 1711.

But for may years before she died was very weak and infirm yet very sensible till near her departure, and we have cause to hope she died in peace with the Lord."

The source for all of Ralph's children and their spouses is The Newby Family, apparently from the database of Larry M. Bell.

Ralph married Dorothy Hinchley about 1635 in , , , England. Dorothy was born about 1611 in , , , England, died in Oct 1711 about age 100, and was buried on 14 Oct 1711 in Stephens Green, Dublin, Ireland.

Children from this marriage were:

         ii.  Edward Newby

809. Dorothy Hinchley was born about 1611 in , , , England, died in Oct 1711 about age 100, and was buried on 14 Oct 1711 in Stephens Green, Dublin, Ireland.

General Notes: Nearly all sources indicate that Dorothy's maiden name is unknown. However, in The Newby Family from William to Emra 1637 - 1981, by Larry Bell in 1992, her her name in indicated as Dorothy Hinchley, b. abt 1611, England?

The Newbys of England and Ireland, compiled 1962 by William Perry Johnson, indicates the following data followed the list of Norris (her daughter Ellinor's) children: Dorothy Newby, mother-in-law of William Norris aforesaid, being very aged--some avers one hundred years--deceased at the home of her son-in-law and was buried at Friends burial place near Stephens Green, 14 of 10 Mo. 1711. She was a woman of good report and orderly conversation, ready to serve Truth and friends, in her station, whilst of ability. But for many years before she died was weak and infirm yet very sensibly till near her departure, and we have cause to hope she died in peace with the Lord.

I asked Larry Bell the source for Dorothy's maiden name and he indicated he had received it from Raymond Winslow who in turn had obtained it from Durham, England parish records.

Dorothy married Ralph Newby about 1635 in , , , England. Ralph was born in , , , England, died in Mar 1682, and was buried on 18 Mar 1682 in Stephens Green, Near Dublin, Ireland.

The Gerrard Family. - Among the neighbors of the Washingtons non were more conspicuous than Dr. Thomas Gerrard. His first wife, Susanna, was the daughter of Justinian Snow, one of the founders of Maryland and Lord Baltimore's factor in the Indian trade. Abel Snow, a clerk in the chancery office, London, and Marmaduke Snow were two other brothers. Dr. Gerrard was for a long time councillor, but was finally banished from Maryland for taking part in the resurrection of Josiah Fendall in 1659. before this he had provided a refuge in Virginia, having obtained on October 18, 1650, a patent for land, and naming among the headrights his wife Susanna Gerrard, and his children susanna, Temperance, Frances, Justinian, and John Gerrard. The same day Walter Brodhurst patented land next to William Hardwick, on the west side of "Poor Jack" Creek. As Walter Brodhurst had a son Gerrard, it raises the suspician that his wife, Anna, who afterwards married Col. Washington, was prehaps a daughter of Col. Thomas gerrard, as well as Washington's third wife Frances.

Dr. Gerrard's wife, Susannah, died before 1672-'73, whereupon he married Rose, the widow of John Tucker, whose children were John, Gerrard, Sarah and Rose, to which children Gerrard (then married to his second wife) made a gift. Dr. Garrard had five daughters and three sons: 1, Susanna (?) Gerrard married Robert Slye, Esq., of the Maryland Council; 2, ...

864. Hunt .

General Notes: Source: LDS microfilm 0854151, Hunt Family PA. & N.C., by Vena (Vena Mae Hamilton) Wilson, 1893 - .

The Hunt motto: VI ET VIRTUE (By strength and valor.) Arms: Per pale argent and sable, a saltire countercharged.
Crest: A lion's head erased argent, ringed or, and collared gules.

The ancient surname is probably of occupational origin and is to be found in many old English records including "The Hundred Rolls of 1273." The Hunts of Longner in Shropshire, were considered the main line of the family, but many branches attained prominence in other English counties which accounts for the differences observed in the design of their coat of arms, even the basic design is usual.

General Notes: Merged with AFN:8XFS-M4 which indicated last name as BORTON (BOURTON) and birth as Bef 1647.

According to Joseph Besse's Collections of the Sufferings of the People Called Friends for the Testimony of a Good Conscience [2 vols., London, 1753], "In 1 mo., 1660, John Bett and John Borton, of Aino [Aynhoe] Northamptonshire, were taken out of their own houses by soldiers, and committed to prison for refusing the oaths. Also, in the year 1665, John Bett, John Borton, Edward Hardley and John Holcroft, (poor laborers) had their goods taken by distress for a fine of four shillings each, imposed for four weeks' absence from their parish church." In Oxfordshire in 1674 there was "taken by distress for meetings this year," £1.15s, from John Holcroft, John Borton and Thomas Mercer.

Bringing a certificate from the Friends' Monthly Meeting of Borton, Oxfordshire, dated 5 Third Month (May) 1679, the Borton family left for West Jersey on the Amity, Richard Diamond, Master, out of Downs, England, settling on what is now the Rancocas Creek on a site along the Rancocas and Burlington Road in Westhampton Township in Burlington County, N. J. The certificate was signed by Thomas Butcher, George Ason, Thomas Penn, Thomas Marcer, John Butcher, Peter Barrett, William Potter, William Tredwell, Simon Thompson, John Lange, Richard Parker, Christopher E. Barrett, Richard Maull, John Gardner, Thomas Olliffe, Richard Vivers, Timothy Burbro Jr., Richard Haines, James Treppes, Timothy Burbro Sr., Thomas Sherwell, John Hastings and Nathaniel Ball.
In the same company of settlers as John Borton's family were the progenitors of the families of Gardiner, Moore, Pickitt, Evans, Collins, Engle and Troth [Holt; Mason].

Mason cited Samuel Smith's History of the Colony of New Caesaria, or New Jersey [1765, pp. 151-152] as the source of a quote from "Transactions of the Assembly of West Jersey, Session 1682, 1st to 11th, 1 mo.," stating that John Borton was chosen with William Brightwen as constable of the London tenth, as the district was known. It was a 32,000 acre tract entitled to representation by ten in the legislature.

John Borton, Jr., and William Borton purchased 175 and 150 acres respectively on the Northampton River in Tenth Month (Dec.) 1681.

Source LDS microfilm 1561672.

From New Jersey State Library, Trendon, New Jersey:

According to Learming and Spicer's "Grants, Concessions, Etc." Second Edition, 1881 pages 469-490, John Boarton was a member of the West Jersey Assembly 1684.

John Borton was also a West Jersey Proprietor and is named by "Samuel Smith as a Constable for the "London Tenth" of the settlers of the Delaware.

From Samuel Smith's History of New Jersey John Borton owned a part of Burlington Island and a thirty second part of West Jersey and asked to be buried in the Friends Burying Place in Burlington.

Cox, 1955: "John Cox came to America with his parents in 1708. We do not know where they lived in England - probably some Quaker community. John was born about 1685 which means he was about 22 on arrival. It is believed the group landed at New Castle, Delaware where they lived for a season. Later the family moved to Kennett, Chester County, Pennsylvania, a Quaker center. This was their residence for about ten years. During that period John Cox Senior died, 1711. We have no idea when his wife Rachel passed away."

Barb Lambert;

I viewed the Cecil Co. MD film I ordered for COX and didn't find much to go on. There was a John & Margaret COX land deed dated 13 August 1678 and a Benjamin & Elizabeth COX land deed dated 10 August 1703. Too little info to make any connections. I did run across a deed for Harmon KANKEY dated 5 September 1717; land purchased from Ephraim Augustine HERMAN & wife Isabella. It offered a small bit of new info in that Harman KANKEY had been a resident of "New Castle upon Delaware in the territories of Pennsylvania" when he bought the land from E. A. HERMAN.
I know that Harman KANKEY's wife has been said to be a daughter of Ephraim & Isabella HERMAN, but I don't think this is a real possibility. I found much reference to the HERMAN families of Cecil Co. MD in that county's history (by Geo.Johnston, 1888) and Ephraim HERMAN was born about 1692, a grandson of Augustine HERMAN who was the owner of a large tract called "Little Bohemia".
At his death ca. 1686, the title & land went to his eldest son, Ephraim George HERMAN, who died before June 1690, when the tract passed to Augustine HERMAN's only other son, Casparus who died ca. 1697. Casparus HERMAN had just 1 son, the above mentioned Ephraim Augustine HERMAN. LindaBelle

1536. John Hussey, son of George Hussey and Unknown, was born in 1570 in Dorking, Surrey, England, died before 24 Jul 1632 in Dorking, Surrey, England, and was buried on 24 Jul 1632 in Dorking, Surrey, England.

General Notes: Source: The Genealogical and Family History of the State of Maine, 1907.

The first authentic account we have of the current family is the record of John Hussey and Mary Wood, December 5, 1593, when they both were of Dorking, Surrey, England, and were persons of good position and of moderate estate in lands. John Hussey died in England, leaving a widow and children. Of the latter the records are meagre, but there is known to have been a son John, who died young, a son Christopher and one or more daughters of whom we have no authentic account.

According to the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, it is not unlikely that John was the early voyager Hussey cast away upon Cape Florida and there devoured by the native cannibals, a fate attributed to Christopher by his gr. gr. son Joseph Marshall of Nantucket, in his signed 'Genealogy of the Husseys.'

Another source, a Hussey genealogy chart provided to me by a Hussey descendant, Dorothy Carter of Waynesville, OH, in 1992, John Hussey died in Dorking on 5 Feb 1630.

This information is quoted from the quarterly "Historic Nantucket", volume 27, Oct. 1979, No. 2

J. William Bardoe, Director of Research, English Genealogical Research, Guildford, Surrey, furnished the entries below, some of which he re-checked for accuracy, and stated that the registers of the adjacent parishes of Abinger and Sheir (Shera) do not contain Hussey entries prior to 5th 12. 1593. Neither do the Richmond Parish Registers reveal anything pertinent to the ancestry of Christopher Hussey.

------- Walter Weston Folger

John married Marie Wood on 5 Dec 1593. Marie died on 16 Jun 1660 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  John Hussey was buried on 8 Jan 1598 in Dorking, Surrey, England.

768      ii.  Christopher Hussey 34 (born on 18 Feb 1599 in Dorking, Surrey, England - died on 6 Mar 1686 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire)

        iii.  Marie Hussey was born in 1599 in Dorking, Surrey, England.

         iv.  Joseph Hussey was born in 1601 in Dorking, Surrey, England.


1537. Marie Wood, daughter of Henry Wood and Marthey Bull, died on 16 Jun 1660 in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire.

General Notes: The ancestry of Mary is taken from Ancestors and Descendants of Jehu Cox by Wayne D. Stout. Stout provided it without any references.

Mary Wood Hussey emigrated to the New england Colony 1630 according to one historical record, and in 1632 according to others.

Having been persecuted in England for their religious views in opposition the the Church of England, they, along with hundreds of other non-conformists or Puritans, had resided in Holland for a period before emigrating to America.

She was an 'Original Grantee' of Hampton, N.H. and a 'Proprietor" there 1638-1640. Her home was near but not with son, Christopher. Even though there was no official "Friends" or Quaker Meetings at that time, her family was of the faith that later became known as 'Friends'. She was a forceful individual.

Source: Historic Nantucket, Vol. 27, Oct 1979, No. 2, quotes Dorking Parish Register. This is a more authentic reference for Mary (Marie) Wood's birth and marriage.

According to the Hussey Manuscript at http://www.llano.net/gowen/hussey_millenium/husseyms_010.htm, John Hussey was married "5th, 12th 1593," according to a letter written by J. William Bardoe, Director of Research, English Genealogical Research, Guildford, Surrey. Walter Weston Folger, writing in "Historic Nantucket" states that "Between 1582 and 1752 March was the first month of the year. The "12th" month therefore was February, which brought about double-dating. Consequently, "5th, 12th 1593" could be written as February 5, 1593-94."
Thus in "new style" dating John Hussey, at about age 35, was married to Mary Wood, age about 18, February 5, 1594, as recorded in the Dorking Parish Register. She was the daughter of John Wood, Jr. and Joanne Taylor Wood and was baptized "5th 5. 1581" [July 5, 1581], according to Dorking parish register where she was identified as "granddaughter of John Wood, senior." She was the daughter of Henry Wood and Martha Bull Wood, according to "Genealogical History of New England" by Ezra Stearns. In the Dorking register her name was entered as "Marie Woode," and the German-appearance of the script has caused some researchers to transcribe her name as "Mary Moore."
...
Wood family footnote: Based on data found in the Dorking Parish Register it is apparent that John Wood Sr. and his wife Audrey Wood were the grandparents of Mary Wood. The Baptismal Register records, "9th, 7th 1581, Marie Wood, granddaughter of John Wood senior."

John Wood Sr. and Audrey Wood were residents of Dorking in 1562 when their son, John Wood, Jr., was baptized there according to the parish register. They were also living there in 1581 and 1586 when two of their daughters died, according to the burial register. Audrey Wood was buried "18th 2. 1603 [April 18, 1603], and John Wood, Sr. was buried "5th 4. 1612" [June 5, 1612], according to Dorking burial register.

The Hussey Manuscript mentioned above contains a very detailed story about Mary Wood's venture from England to America.

Marie married John Hussey on 5 Dec 1593. John was born in 1570 in Dorking, Surrey, England, died before 24 Jul 1632 in Dorking, Surrey, England, and was buried on 24 Jul 1632 in Dorking, Surrey, England.

1538. Stephen Batchelder Reverend 34 was born from 1560 to 1561 in Wherwell, Hampshire, England and died in 1656 in London, Middlessex, England at age 96.

General Notes: LDS microfilm 1561672 has this colorful story about him:

Rev. Stephen Bachiler born in England 1561 was well educated (B.A. Oxford 1586), and had received orders in the established church but was not in sympathy with his rites and institutions. His unwillingness to conform to its requirements resulted in his being deprived of his ecclesiastical commissions. He spend a few yhears in Holland but returned to London. Came to Lynn, Mass. June 5, 1632 and here he established the first Episcopal Church of Lynn according to his own ideas. Differences occurred from time to time but finally when a council of ministers was called, it was decided that although the church had not been properly instituted, yet the mutual exercise of their religious duties had supplied the defect. His removal from Lynn was desired by those who differed from him, but where in that day did not religious differences lead to enmity.

Rev. Stephen Bachelor removed from Lynn, Mass. to Ipwich, where he received a grant of fifty acres of land and a proposal to locate but he soon left Ipwich and with some friend, John King and others to Mathcheese on the Barnstable Bay, now Yarmouth, with a view of establishing a colony there. This proved impracticable and he went next to Newburyport and 7-6-1638 received a grant of land from the town. Later the general Court gave him permission to settle a town at Hampton a few miles from Newburyport. In 1639 Ipwich offered him ;£60 acres of land if he would live there but he declined.

On 7-5-1639 he sold his house and land in Newbury and removed to Hampton, settled the town and established a church of which he became pastor. In 1640 Hampton granted him 300 acres of land and he gave them a bell for the church called "meeting-house". In 1647 he was in Portsmouth wwwhere ;he remained three years.

At the age of eighty-nine he married unfortunately and lived with his third wife only one year. In 1651 he returned to England and died in his 100th year.

Here is a more detailed story I obtained from the Prodigy Genealogy Topic:

This was written by Rev. Stephen Bachiler, probably a descendant. This eccentric and learned divine has the honor of being the first white man who settled within the present limits of the town of Barstable. He lived a hundred years, and his long life was checkered with exciting incidents on which the imaginative pen of the novelist would delight to dwell.

He was born in England in 1561, graduated from Oxford, received orders in the established church, was settled in the ministry, and ejected by The bishops for non-conformity, at whose hands Gov. Winthrop says he had suffered much.
He married early in life, and four of his sons and three daughters are named:

John Wing, afterwards of Sandwich, married his daughter Deborah, probably before his removal at Holland, where he resided several years. During his residence in that country, Christopher Hussey, the ancestor of the Nantucket family of that name, became enamored with his daughter Theodate, and sought her hand in marriage; but Mr. Bachiler refused assent, without the bridegroom would agree to remove to New England. Hussey assented to the condition imposed, and took, probably in 1629, Theodate to wife.

Mr. Bachiler, intending to emigrate to New England, soon after returned to London. Mr. Lewis states that his church in Holland consisted of six members beside himself, and that these returned with him to London. No names are given; but it is uniformly stated that they were his friends, or members of his own family. If so, the seven probably were Mr. Bachiler and his wife, John Wing and his wife Deborah. John Sanborn and his wife, a daughter of Mr. Bachiler, and Theodate Hussey. Sanborn's wife died in England, and it does not appear that he came over. His sons John, William and Stephen came over with their grandfather and settled in Hampton. Christopher Hussey and his mother, the widow Mary Hussey, were afterwards members of his church, and followed their pastor in all his wanderings. Mr. Savage, whose authority is not to be rejected on light or inconclusive testimony, thinks the Husseys came over in the same ship with Mr. Bachiler.

The court records, and the decisions of the ecclesiastical councils favor his supposition, and it will be hard to show how the ubiquitous number of six members is made up,, if he is not right. On the 9th of March, 1632, Mr. Bachiler and his company embarked at London in the ship William and Francis, Capt. Thomas, and arrived in Boston Thursday, June 5, 1632, after a tedious passage of 88 days, and on the day next after his arrival went to Lynn.

Mr. Lewis states that "In Mr. Bachiler's church were six persons who had belonged to a church with him in England; and of these he constituted a church at Lynn, to which he admitted such as desired to become members, and commenced the exercise of his public ministrations on Sunday, the 8th of June, without installation." Four months after a complaint was made of some irregularities in his conduct. He was arraigned before the court at Boston, Oct. 3, when the following order was passed: "Mr. Bachiler is required to forbear exercising his gifts as a pastor or teacher publiqely in our Pattent, unless it be to those he brought with him, for his contempt of authority, and until some scndles be removed."

Mr. Bachiler, however, succeeded in regaining the esteem of the people, and the court on the 4th of March, 1633, removed their injunction against him.

In 1635, some of the members became dissatisfied with the conduct of their pastor, "and doubting whether they were regularly organized as a church," withdrew from the communion. A council of ministers was held on the 15th of March, and after deliberating three days, decided "that although the church had not been properly instituted, yet after-consent and practice of a church-state had supplied that defect. So all were reconciled," says the record. Mr. Bachiler, however, perceiving no prospect of terminating the difficulties, requested dismission for himself and the six who had accompanied him from England, which was granted, on the supposition that he intended to remove from Lynn. Instead of this, he remained and formed another church of his friends, that is of those who came over with him.
This conduct gave great offence to "the most and chief of the town" of Lynn and they entered a complaint against Mr. Bachiler to the assistants who forbade him to proceed in the organization of his church until the subject was considered by other ministers. Still he goes on. The magistrates require his attendance before them. He refused to obey; they send the marshall who brought him into their presence. He submits and agrees to leave the town in three months. Mr.Bachiler was admitted freeman May 6, 1635, and removed from Lynn to Ipswich in Feb. 1636, where he received a grant of fifty acres of land, and had the prospect of a settlement; but some difficulty arose and he left the place.

Gov. Withrop in the first volume of his history, under the date of March 30, 1638, has the following passage: "Another plantation was now in hand at Mattakeese ("now Yarmouth," is written on the margin) six miles beyond Sandwich. The undertaker of this was one Mr. Bachiler, late pastor at Saugus. (since called Lynn) being about 76 years of age; yet he walked thither on foot in a very hard season." "He and his company, being all poor men, finding the difficulty, gave it over and others undertook it." Mr. Bachiler settled in the easterly part of Mattakeese, at a place which is known to this day as "Old Town." The names of his associates are not given; probably the company consisted of persons who belonged to, or were connected by marriage, with the family of Mr. Bachiler, namely, sons, sons- in-law and grand-sons, with their families.

Mr. Bachiler probably obtained the consent of Mr. Collicut, to whom the lands at Matakeese had been granted, before he undertook to establish a plantation; for without such consent he would have been a trespasser and liable to ejectment. The terms of the grant cannot be quoted; but it does not thence follow that not permit was given or grant made. We know by the Old Colony records that in 1637 or 1638, certain lands in Barnstable were run out into house and other lots; that these lands were laid out by or under the authority of Mr. Richard Collicut of Dorchester. He was a surveyor, but there is not evidence that he was ever in Barstable. The Plymouth records tell us the thing was done; but they do not tell us who did it. The passage quoted from Gov. Winthrop clearly and distinctly states that at, or about the time, the Plymouth records say the lands were run out, Mr. Bachiler and his company undertook to form a plantation at Mattakeese.

The very first thing that he and his company did, undoubtedly, was to do what all such companies did in those times first do that is run out house lots for each of their party, and farming lands and meadows to be held by each in severalty. Not to presume this, is to presume that Mr. Bachiler and his company were not only wanting in common prudence, but wanting in common sense. The first settlers in new countries never failed to appropriate a sufficiency of land to themselves, and in order to make such appropriation, they must first run them out and put up boundaries. That there were some among his company that could survey lands, scarce admits of doubt. Mr. Bachiler, as Mr. Prince informs us, was a "man of learning and ingenuity, and wrote a fine and curious hand," and he could undoubtedly run lines and draw plans. His son John Wing, one of the company, was a man of skill and energy-and he probably had with him his sons Daniel, Stephen and John, three stout youths, if not all men grown-one of whom in after-times was a surveyor of lands. That Mr Bachiler's party were capable of doing all that the Colony records say was done, does not admit of doubt, and in the absence of all proof to the contrary, it is to be presumed that they did do it.

Sandwich was settled in 1637, mostly by people from Lynn-old neighbors and acquaintances of Mr. Bachiler's company-and it is probable, that being the nearest settlement to Mattakeese, that they left their women and little ones there till shelter could be procured for them in the new settlement.

The first house built within the present bounds of Yarmouth (of which there is a record) is that of Mr. Stephen Hopkins, afterwards, owned by his son Gyles, and by him sold to Andrew Hallet, jr. This was in the summer of 1638, and was built as a temporary residence for his servants who had the care of cattle sent from Plymouth to be wintered at Mattakeese. Whether or not cattle had been sent from Plymouth in previous years does not appear; if so, then Mr. Bachiler found whites within a mile of the place he selected for settlement.

It was also in the immediate vicinity of Lyanough's town," a place not inhabited by the Indians in the winter, and their deserted wigwams perhaps afforded them a temporary shelter. Mr. Bachiler and his company wee all poor men, illy provided with the means of establishing a plantation, even in the mild season of the year, and it is hardly possible that they could have sustained themselves during the intensely cold winter of 1637, without some kindly herdsmen, or some friendly Indians gave then shelter while they were preparing their rudehabitations.

Early in the spring of 1638, Mr. Bachiler, "finding the difficulties great," abandoned his plantation at Mattakeese. John Wingand his family stopped in Sandwich. Mr. Bachiler and Christopher Hussey went to Newbury, and on the 6th of September the Massachusetts Legislature gave them and others leave to begin a plantation at Hampton, of which he became the minister. The net year, according to Mr. Felt, he was excommunicated for unchastity, thought Gov. Winthrop says he was then "about eighty years of age, and had a lusty, comely woman to wife." In November 1641, he was restored to the church, but not to his office. About this time his house in Hampton took fire and was consumed with nearly all his property.

In 1644, the people of Exeter invited him to settle there; but the court forbid his settlement. In 1647, he was at Portsmouth, now Portland, where in 1650, he being then 89 years old, his second wife Helen(a) being dead, he married his third wife Mary, without publishing his intention of marriage according to law, for which he was fined ten pounds half of which was afterwards remitted. (interesting, I found that he had 4 wives, any one know?) With his third wife he lived only a few months. She went to Kittery, and, according to the York records, on the 15th of October, 1651, was presented for committing adultery with George rogers, and sentenced "to receive forty stripes save one, at the first town meeting held at Kittery six weeks after her delivery, and be branded with the letter A." In October, 1656, she petitioned for a divorce from Mr. Bachiler, because he had five years before "transported himself to Ould England, and betaken himself to another wife and because she desired "disposing herselfe in the way of marriage,"

Whether or not she obtained a divorce does not appear on record. Mr. Bachiler, after his return to England, married a fourth wife, this third being then living. At last he died in the year 1660, at Hackney, near London, inthe one hundredth year of his age.

No record of his family is preserved. Four sons and three daughters are named. Henry, settled at Reading; Nathaniel, born about 1611, "aa chip of the old block." settled at Hampton, and Francis and Stephen, both remained in London, the latter said to have been living in 1685. Of his daughters, one as before stated, married John Sanborn, and died before 1632. Theodate, married Christopher Hussey, and died in Hampton in 1649. Deborah married John Wing of Sandwich. On the Yarmouth town records I find the following entry: Old Goody Wing desesed the last of January, '91 and '92," that is Jan'y 31, 1692, N.S. This record probably refers to Deborah, widow of the first John Wing. Her son John resided at Sawtucket (now Brewster). then within thecorporate jurisdiction of Yarmouth, and his aged mother probably resided with him. There is no one beside to whom the record will apply. Her age is not given, but an approximation to it may be made. Her son Daniel of Sandwich, if he had then been living, would have been 70 years of age, consequently the mother must have been about 90 years of age at her death.

(In preparing this article, I have consulted Gov. Winthrops History, the Plymouth and Massachusetts Records, Felt's Ecclesiastical History, Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, and Lewis's History of Lynn; the latter gives the fullest sketch of the life of Mr. Bachiler yet published. The reading of the extracts from the records, given by Mr. Lewis, leave the impression of the mind that Mr. Bachiler was not such a man s a minister of the gospel should be.
A literary friend, who for several years has been collecting materials for a memoir of Mr. Bachiler, says he is not deserving of the odium which has been heaped on his character.

The NHSOG (NH Soc. Genealogists Record) Vol. 8, No 1 (Jan 1991) contained an article by George Freeman Sanborn Jr. (who is Editor, Pres of NHSOG, and Dir. of the NEHGS Library in Boston - impeccable credentials) ..... His article is just 4 pages long, and reveals research done which proves that the once-published data that Stephen BACHILER died in Hackney ENG in 1660 was the result of a hasty reading by someone long ago of "Collections of the Mass. Hist. Soc., Vol. VII - 4th Series, pp 583-584" which actually referred to - not Rev. Stephen, but a Rev. John BACHILER - no known relation, who actually died Hackney 1674! So much for one mistake perpetuated for decades <g>. Research originally commissioned for a Philip Simonds, and published in the "Batchelor Family News-Journal" 4:5 (April 1974), gave new clues. The Sanborn Family Assoc. continued the research (all N.E. SANBORNs are desc. from the 3 grandsons of Rev. Stephen BACHILER) - and in the Guildhall Library in London was found, in the burial register of Allhallows Staining: "Steeven Batchiller Minister that dyed att Robert Barbers was buryed in the new church yard Octob 31th 1656". Only 2 men named Stephen BACHILER were alumni of Oxford/Cambridge, and it has been concluded that this burial was that of our ancestor. He would have been about 90. He matriculated St. Johns College, Oxford 15 Nov 1581, and gave his age as 71 on arrival in N.E. in 1632. The church of Allhallows Staining (taken down in 1870) stood at west side of Mark Lane, south of Fenchurch St. in London. Thus, Rev. Stephen BACHILER was buried just 17 days after Mary (BAILEY) BEEDLE petitioned the courts in N.E. to divorce Stephen.

In June 1995 I noticed that Heritage Books was reprinting the 1898 Batcheller Genealogy: Descendants of Rev. Stephen Bachiler, of England, A Leading Non-Conformist who Settled the Town of Hampton, New Hampshire, and Joseph, Henry, Joshua and John Bacheller of Essex County, Massachusetts. 624 pp., illus., index, paper, $35.00 #P316.

ASSOCIATIONS: RICHARD DUMMER of Roxbury and Newbury married first Jane Mason, a daughter of Reverend Thomas Mason, and resided late in his life at North Stoneham, Hampshire; Stephen Bachiler married as his third wife Helena Mason, widow of Reverend Thomas Mason, and resided just before his departure for New England at South Stoneham, Hampshire. These marriages made Bachiler the step-father-in-law of Dummer, and explains their close connection in the activities of the Plough Company. COMMENTS: Stephen Bachiler led a most interesting life, filled with unusual twists and turns far beyond the norm. In the ensuing paragraphs we take a chronological tour of his nine decades, attempting along the way to resolve certain problems of interpretation. As noted above, Stephen Bachiler entered college about 1581, and received his B.A. in 1586. On 17 July 1587 he was presented as vicar of Wherwell, Hampshire, and remained at that parish until he was ejected in 1605 [NEHGR 46:60-61, citing Winchester diocesan records]. Bachiler began his long career of contrariety as early as 1593, when he was cited in Star Chamber for having "uttered in a sermon at Newbury very lewd speeches tending seditiously to the derogation of her Majesty's government" [NEHGR 74:319-20]. Upon the accession of James I as King of England, nearly a hundred ministers were deprived of their benefices between the years 1604 and 1609, and among these, as noted above, was Stephen Bachiler [Kenneth Fincham, Prelate as Pastor: The Episcopate of James I (Oxford 1990), p. 326]. Bachiler was living at Wherwell late in 1606 when he was a legatee in the will of Henry Shipton [NEHGR 74:320]. A case in Star Chamber in 1614 still refers to Bachiler as of Wherwell, and adds much other useful information about the family. George Wighley, a minster and Oxford graduate, accused Stephen Bachiler of Wherwell, clerk, Stephen Bachiler, his son, John Bate of Wherwell, clerk, and others of libelling him, by means of verses ridiculing him. In the course of the complaint Wighley quotes John Bate as saying he would keep a copy of the poem "as a monument of his cousin's the said Stephen Bacheler the younger his wit, who is in truth his cousin" [Star Chamber Proc. James I 297/25, 1614]. Another suit, this time in the Court of Requests, although not entered until 1639, bears directly on many points in Stephen Bachiler's life in England, and will be treated here, out of chronological order. In 1639 Henry Atkinson of London, gent., complained that five or six years before John Bate, gent., living in Holland, had borrowed £4 from "Samuel Bachiler late of Gorcem [i.e., Gorcum] in Holland aforesaid Minister," after which Bate instructed Bachiler to collect the debt from Dorcas Bate, mother of John, and widow of Reverend John Bate, minister, deceased. Bachiler assigned the debt to Atkinson, who had married Bachiler's sister, and Atkinson was unable to collect the debt from Dorcas Bate. John Bate had also borrowed money from "Nathaniell Bachiler of Southampton Merchant (one other of the brothers of your subject's wife)" and this debt had also been assigned to Atkinson to collect from Dorcas Bate. The latter was abetted in avoiding payment of the debt by her son Gabriel Bate, and her son-in-law and daughter Robert and Anne Southwood. Atkinson noted that his wife's father [i.e., Reverend Stephen Bachiler] had obtained the living of Wherwell for John Bate the father, and that the latter had refused to pay to the former twenty marks a year out of the living or benefice, as had been agreed [PRO REQ2/678/64]. On 28 April 1614 Stephen Bachiler was a free suitor of Newton Stacey at the view of frankpledge of the Barton Stacey Manorial Court, and was a free suitor of Barton Stacey at the court of 2 October 1615. On 19 February 1615[/6?] Edmund Alleyn of Hatfield Peverell, Essex, bequeathed £5 to "Mr. Bachelour," and Stephen Bachiler was one of the witnesses [Waters 518-19]. On 11 June 1621 Adam Winthrop, father of Governor JOHN WINTHROP, reported that "Mr. Bachelour the preacher dined with us" at Groton, Suffolk [WP 1:235]. Although this might conceivably be the younger Stephen Bachiler, who had been ordained as a deacon late in 1613, the man referred to in these records is more likely the elder Stephen. Since he is well recorded as a resident of Newton Stacey both before and after this time, he must have made occasional visits to East Anglia. The Hampshire feet of fines show that "Stephen Bachiler, clerk," acquired land in Newton Stacey in 1622 and 1629, and sold it in 1630 and 1631 [Batchelder Gen 76-77]. While at Newton Stacey (a village within the parish of Barton Stacey) Bachiler had managed to incite the parishioners of Barton Stacey to acts that came to the attention of the sheriff, who petitioned for redress to the King in Council; the complaint described Bachiler as "a notorious inconformist" [NEHGR 46:62, citing Domestic Calendar of State Papers, 1635]. In summary, while there are gaps in the English career of Bachiler, it would appear that he lived at Wherwell for most of the years from his induction there in 1587 until 1614, and that he then resided in Newton Stacey from 1614 until 1631, shortly before his departure for New England. Bachiler apparently lived briefly at South Stoneham, Hampshire, after disposing of his land at Newton Stacey, for that is the residence he gave for himself and wife on 23 June 1631 when he was applying for permission to travel to Flushing in Holland "to visit their sons and daughters" [Waters 520]. At about this same time Stephen Bachiler allied himself with a group of London merchants to form the Plough Company, which had obtained a grant of land in the neighborhood of Saco. The Plough Company managed to send two groups of settlers to New England, in the Plough in 1631 and the William & Francis in 1632, but they were never able to occupy their patent, and the company soon failed. (For a full account of this ill-starred enterprise, see V.C. Sanborn, "Stephen Bachiler and the Plough Company of 1630," The Genealogist, New Series, 19 [1903]:270-84, and the sources cited there.) Shortly after his arrival in New England in 1632, Stephen Bachiler settled at Saugus (later to be called Lynn), where he immediately began to organize a church. Over the next four years Bachiler and a portion of his congregation were repeatedly at odds with the rest of the congregation and with the colony authorities, and by early 1636 Bachiler had ceased to minister at Lynn [GMN 1:20]. In addition to this ongoing conflict (which became a recurring feature of Bachiler's career in New England), two stories of dubious validity are associated with his stay at Lynn. First, a fictional diary describes at length Bachiler's physical appearance, to the extent of informing us that he had "an unseemly wen on the side of his nose which presses that member in an unshapely way"; this is just part of the imaginative invention of Obadiah Redpath (a pseudonym of James R. Newhall, whose non-fictional writings were not much more reliable) [Lin: or, Notable People and Notable Things in the Early History of Lynn ... (Lynn 1890, earlier editions of which carried the title Lin: or, Jewels of the Third Plantation), p. 65]. Second, this same source, and others, relate the following story: "On the first Sunday at Lynn, four children were baptized. Thomas Newhall, the first white child born in Lynn, was first presented. Mr. Bachiler put him aside, saying
I will baptize my own child first,' meaning Stephen Hussey, his daughter's child, born the same week as Thomas Newhall" [NEHGR 46:158]. There is, in the first place, no contemporary evidence for this event. Then, in the brief list of baptisms apparently performed by Bachiler at Lynn, Newbury, and in his early days at Hampton, the earliest entry is for John Hussey, son of Christopher and Theodate (Bachiler) Hussey, whereas if the above story were true we would expect Stephen Hussey to be at the head of this list. This story would seem to be a typical nineteenth-century creation. After his departure from Lynn, Bachiler is supposed to have resided in Ipswich, and to have received a grant of land there in 1636 or 1637, but no contemporary evidence for this has been found. Bachiler's next adventure occurred in the winter of 1637/8, for Winthrop tells us in his journal, in an entry made in late March of that year, that "Another plantation was now in hand at Mattakeese [Yarmouth], six miles beyond Sandwich. The undertaker of this was one Mr. Batchellor, late pastor of Sagus, (since called Lynn), being about seventy-six years of age; yet he walked thither on foot in a very hard season. He and his company, being all poor men, finding the difficulty, gave it over, and others undertook it" [WJ 1:313]. Bachiler then resided for about a year at Newbury, where he received a grant of land on 6 July 1638. Bachiler also seems to have been able to organize a church at Newbury (or to keep in existence the church that he had earlier organized at Lynn). In a letter dated 26 February 1643/4 the minister, recounting his various experiences in New England, told how "the Lord shoved me thence [i.e., after his arrival in 1632, and the failure of the Plough Company] by another calling to Sagust, then, from Sagust to Newbury, then from Newbury to Hampton" [WP 4:447]. Later in 1644 Winthrop pointed out that "Mr. Batchellor had been in three places before, and through his means, as was supposed, the churches fell to such divisions, as no peace could be till he was removed" [WJ 2:216-17]. These records indicate that Bachiler headed churches in three towns (Lynn, Newbury and Hampton), or possibly that the church organized in Lynn had a continuous existence as it moved to Newbury and then to Hampton [see GMN 4:20-21 for a more detailed discussion of these possibilities]. In the summer of 1639 Stephen Bachiler and some other families, many of them from Newbury, began the settlement of Hampton, and Bachiler was soon joined there by Reverend Timothy Dalton, who shared the pulpit with him. As had happened throughout his life, controversy soon arose. In 1641 Winthrop reported that Bachiler "being about 80 years of age, and having a lusty comely woman to his wife, did solicit the chastity of his neighbor's wife" [WJ 2:53], and this led to an attack on him by Dalton and a large portion of the Hampton congregation. These charges were apparently not resolved at the time, but in 1643-4, when the town of Exeter invited Bachiler to be their minister, the affair was raised again, and this was sufficient to prevent his removal to that church [GMN 4:21-22]. At about this time Bachiler's ministry at Hampton ceased, and he soon moved to Strawberry Bank [Portsmouth], where he remained until his return to England. On 9 April 1650 at a Quarterly Court held at Salisbury, "Mr. Steven Bacheller [was] fined for not publishing his marriage according to law." At the same court it was ordered "that Mr. Bacherler and Mary his wife shall live together, as they publicly agreed to do, and if either desert the other, the marshal to take them to Boston to be kept until next quarter Court of Assistants, to consider a divorce.... In case Mary Bacheller live out of this jurisdiction without mutual consent for a time, notice of her absence to be given the magistrates at Boston" [EQC 1:191]. On 15 October 1650 at a court at York "George Rodgers & Mrs. Batcheller [were] presented upon vehement suspicion of incontinency for living in one house together & lying in one room" [MPCR 1:146]. At a court at Piscataqua [i.e., Kittery] on 16 October 1651 the grand jury presented "George Rogers for, & Mary Batcheller the wife of Mr. Steven Bacheller minister for adultery"; George Rogers was to have forty strokes, and Mary Bachiler "for her adultery shall receive 40 strokes save one at the first town meeting held at Kittery six weeks after the delivery & be branded with the letter A" [MPCR 1:164]. This child born late in 1651 or early in 1652 was apparently the Mary Bachiler who later married William Richards, and even though the Dover Court on 26 March 1673 awarded him administration of the estate of Stephen Bachiler [NHPP 40:287], she would not have been his daughter. (See MA Arch 9:28 and NHGR 8:14 for more on Bachiler's fourth wife.) Stephen Bachiler returned to England after these events, and most secondary sources claim that he made that trip in 1654 when his grandson Stephen Samborne returned to England. On 2 October 1650 "Steven Bachiler" witnessed a deed between Christopher Hussey (grantor) and Steven Sanborn and Samuel Fogg (grantees) [NLR 1:19]; this is the last certain record of Bachiler in New England (unless the "Mr. Batchelder" who was presented at court on 28 June 1652 for being illegally at the house of John Webster is our man [NHPP 40:87-88]). Although a number of records in New England between 1651 and 1654 mentioned Stephen Bachiler, none of them necessarily implies that Bachiler was still in New England, and a few indicate that he was not in close proximity to the courts in question. In a court held at Hampton on 7 October 1651, Francis Pebodie sued Tho[mas] Bradbury for "issuing an illegal execution, for or in behalf of Mr. Batcheller, against the town of Hampton" [EQC 1:236]. On 14 October 1651 the Massachusetts Bay General Court ordered that "in answer to a petition preferred by several of the inhabitants of Hampton, for relief in respect of unjust molestation from some persons there pretending power for what they do from Mr. Batchelor, it is ordered, that whatsoever goods or lands have been taken away from any of the inhabitants of Hampton, aforesaid, by Edward Calcord or Joh[n] Sanbourne, upon pretence of being authorized by Mr. Batchelor, either with or without execution, shall be returned to them from whom it was taken, & the execution to be called in, & no more to be granted until there appear sufficient power from Mr. Batchelor to recover the same, to the County Courts, either of Salsbury or Hampton" [MBCR 3:253]. Apparently John Sanborn and others were pursuing the interests of Stephen Bachiler in his absence, but without a proper power of attorney. It might be argued that he was in Strawberry Bank [Portsmouth], but unable to come to Hampton, but there is no indication that he was ill or unable to travel at any time in his long life, and the more likely explanation is that he was already in England by October of 1651. At a court held at Hampton on 3 October 1654 "Mr. Batcheller's letter of attorney to Mr. Christopher Hussie [was] approved" [EQC 1:372]. Most secondary sources state that Bachiler died at Hackney in England in 1660, but more recent research has shown that Stephen Bachiler died in London and was buried on 31 October 1656 [NHGR 8:14-17]. Among many remarkable lives lived by early New Englanders, Bachiler's is the most remarkable. From 1593, when he was cited before Star Chamber, until 1654, when he last makes a mark on New England records, this man lived a completely independent and vigorous life, never acceding to any authority when he thought he was correct. Along with Nathaniel Ward of Ipswich, Stephen Bachiler was one of the few Puritan ministers active in Elizabethan times to survive to come to New England. As such he was a man out of his times, for Puritanism in Elizabethan times was different from what it became in the following century, and this disjunction may in part account for Bachiler's stormy career in New England [Simon P. Newman, "Nathaniel Ward, 1580-1652: An Elizabethan Puritan in a Jacobean World," EIHC 127:313-26]. But Nathaniel Ward did not have anything like as much trouble, and most of Bachiler's conflicts may be ascribed to his own unique character. Savage includes among the children of Stephen Bachiler sons Francis and Henry, for whom there is no evidence. These phantom sons derive in part from a misinterpretation of a 1685 letter from Stephen Bachiler to Nathaniel Bachiler [Batchelder Gen 110-11], which refers to "our brother Francis Bachlir." As the two correspondents are grandsons of the Reverend Stephen (sons of his son Nathaniel) and not sons, it follows that Francis Bachiler was also a grandson. Of the known children of Stephen Bachiler, only Theodate and Deborah came to New England. CHRISTOPHER HUSSEY is supposed to have married Theodate Bachiler in England and to have sailed to New England in 1632 with his father-in-law, but, as will be analyzed in more detail in the treatment of Hussey himself, there is no evidence that he was in New England before 1633, and it may be that his marriage to Theodate did not occur until 1635. Deborah Bachiler married John Wing, and after his death came to New England with her children, in the late 1630s. Ann Bachiler married a Samborne, and eventually her three Samborne sons joined their grandfather at Hampton, although the date of their arrival is not known. Stephen's son Nathaniel did not come to New England, but Nathaniel's son Nathaniel did. The Reverend Stephen's two other sons, Stephen and Samuel, did not come to New England, nor, apparently, did any of their children. BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1892 Charles E. Batchelder published a four-part study of Reverend Stephen Bachiler [NEHGR 46:58-64, 157-61, 246-51, 345-50]. For the most part this is a simple chronological presentation of the evidence available at that date. In the third installment, however, the author devotes much space to a spirited but unconvincing defense of Bachiler against the claim made by Winthrop that one of the grounds of the Hampton church's dispute with Bachiler was an attempt "to solicit the chastity of his neighbor's wife." In 1898 Frederick Clifton Pierce published Batchelder, Batcheller Genealogy. Descendants of Rev. Stephen Bachiler, of England, a Leading Non-conformist, Who Settled the Town of New Hampton, N.H. and Joseph, Henry, Joshua and John Batcheller of Essex Co., Massachusetts (Chicago 1898), cited in this sketch as Batchelder Gen. This volume includes a long sketch of Stephen Bachiler (pp. 75-115 [including the accounts of his children]), which, as is typical with this author, contains much information of dubious validity, very poorly organized. Embedded in the list of the immigrant's children, between the daughter Deborah and the son Stephen, are several accounts of Reverend Stephen Bachiler prepared by other authors, mostly published in various town histories [Batchelder Gen 95-109]. Since the three Samborne brothers of Hampton and all their descendants are also descendants of Reverend Stephen Bachiler, V.C. Sanborn, when he compiled the Sanborn genealogy, included an account of Bachiler's life [Genealogy of the Family of Samborne or Sanborn in England and America. 1194-1898 (n.p. 1899), pp. 59-66]. Like all of his work, Sanborn's writing on Bachiler is careful and accurate. A curious book published in London in 1661 included a supposed coat of arms for Stephen Bachiler, which included a punning reference to the Plough Company (Sylvanus Morgan, The Sphere of Gentry: Deduced from the Principles of Nature, An Historical and Genealogical Work, of Arms and Blazon ..., pp.102-03). This was certainly not a properly granted coat of arms, but something invented by the author for his own literary purposes.

Noted events in his life were:

• Hampton, New Hampshire: Monument in Founders Park. As full time RVers we spent the summer of 1997 in Wells, Maine, about 40 miles north of Hampton, New Hampshire. We drove down there one day and had a look around Founders Park. It is a small park in the shape of a triangle in the south east part of town bounded by Park Ave., Landing Road, and Cuss Lane. The perimeter of the park is lined with small stones about two feet tall with a small plaque with the name of each founding family who had settled in Hampton prior to 1700. I checked and found my ancestor Hussey and Perkins stones. In the center of the park is a large stone. According to the photographs I took, it is over seven feet tall. It has a large plaque that contains the following, "A little band of pioneers under the leadership of Reverend Stephen Batchelder of South Ampton, England seeking a larger liberty in October 1638 settled in the wilderness near this spot to plant a free church in a free town. They were joined in 1639 by others and in that year the town was incorporated. To do honor the founders and fathers of Hampton to exhalt the ideals for which they strove and as an inspiration to posterity this memorial is dedicated. October 16, 1925."

1540. Issache Perkyns, son of Thomas Perkins and Alice Kebble, died on 1 Dec 1629.

General Notes: Source: Ancestors and Descendants of JEHU COX, by Wayne D. Stout. He attributes the Perkins "sketchy pedegree" to an unpublished manuscript entitled the Perkins Family by M. L. Marston, found in the New England Genealogical Library at Boston in 1950. This source only identified one son, Isaac, b. 1611.

The spelling of this name was provided by Lillian Etter of the San Diego Family History Center, whose husband, William Eller, is a descendent of the Perkins line.

Susanne Braryer provided me with a reference to all children other than Abraham.
She quotes Perkyns Family in Ye Olden Times, Mansfied Parkyns, esq. Ancestors of Dudley Wildes 1759-1820 of Topsfield, Mass by Walter Goodwin Davis. This source also identifies the marriages to two different Alices.

Dow reports that tradition, unverifiable though it may be, indicates that Abraham and Isaac were brothers. They arrived in Hampton at or about the same time. The lots assigned to them were adjacent to one another. GDMNH, without adding more detail, declares them to be brothers.

1541. Alice .

Alice married Issache Perkyns before 1604-1605. Issache died on 1 Dec 1629.

1542. Humphrey Wise was born of Ipswich, , Massachusetts.

General Notes: Source: Hopkinson and Allied Families, 1965.

The name Wise has had many variations of spelling, Wyeth, Withe, Wyth, Wisse, Wyse, etc.

Humphrey Wise, the immigrant, was living in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1635, although we do not know just when he came to America. He had a one acre house lot on the south side of the river, and apparently owned other property. His wife's name was Susanna (Susan), but her surname is not known. Humphrey lived in New England for a short time as he died in 1638; subsequently little information is available about him. He did not leave a will.

After Humphrey's death Susanna married secondly in 1639, Samuel Greenfield of Salem, who was later accused by the court of having taken into his possession without legal order, the property which had belonged to Humphrey. On Jan. 13, 1639, the General Court of Boston ordered the Court at Ipswich "to examine and settle all things belonging to the estate of Humfrey Wisse, including all the land sold and unsold." The Ipswich Court on Jan. 26, 1639, asked for an inventory of the estate which amounted to about 140 lbs. Mr. Greenfield must have been able to convince the court of his honesty, as it approved the sale of the house and land and such other sales as had already been made, and appointed him as administrator of the estate. He gave bond to handle the money and to bring up the five minor children until the boys were 21 and the girls 18 years of age, at which time each was to receive a cretain portion of the estate.

The court further agreed that with the consent of Samuel Greenfield and Susan, his wife, that Benjamin the oldest boy, should be apprenticed to his brother-in-law, Abraham Perkins, for seven years from Sept. 29, 1638. Since the apprenticeship was dated back it is probable that Benjamin had been living with his sister, Mary, since that date.

Humphrey and Susanna had eight children, all or most of whom must have been born in England. We do not have their birthdates or order of their births, except that the last five named were minors at the time of their father's death. The three oldest were apparently married and had received their share of the estate before Humphrey's death.

Humphrey married Susan Tidd. Susan was born about 1592 and was buried about 1678.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Abigail Wise was born before 1620.

         ii.  Mary Wyeth was born about 1618 and died on 29 May 1706 about age 88.

771     iii.  Susanna Wise (born about 1614 in Hillmorton, , England - died in 1699 in , New Castle, Delaware)

         iv.  Benjamin Wise was born about 1616.

          v.  Joseph Wise was born about 1618.

         vi.  Edmund Wise was born about 1620.

        vii.  Emma Wise was born after 1620.

       viii.  Ann Wise was born about 1624.

         ix.  Alice Wise was born in 1628 and died in 1657 at age 29.

1568. William Alias Jessop Sonier, son of William Jessop and Unknown, died after 1650.

General Notes: Source: Cleaver.

William Sonier alias Jessop, son of William, was baptized at Kirkburton parish, Yorkshire, England 5 April 1579. He died at Great Lepton, Yorkshire, a joyner or carpenter-cabinet maker, leaving a will dated 13 February 1649 (our year 1650). His wife who predeceased him was Dorthy Ireland, the daughter of Laurance and Jenet (Brodhed) Ireland, married at Kirkburton 14 February 1601/2. A Henry Irelande and Margareta Malynson were married in Kirkburton in September 1544, but there is no record of a Laurance baptism. Dorothy Ireland was baptized at Kirkburton 21 May 1580 and was buried there 15 May 1649, a widow. William, the father of William, has not been identified. The sparsity of records, the presence of more than one william of the same era in the same area makes identification uncertain. Surnames were just settling into common usage in this section of rural Yorkshire and parish records contain many alias names as well as indication of considerable childbirth outside recognized wedlock.

William married Dorothy Ireland on 14 Feb 1602 in Kirkburton, Yorkshire, England. Dorothy was buried on 15 May 1649 in Kirkburton, Yorkshire, England.

1616. William Newby was born before 1592 in Probably In, Northumberland, England.

General Notes: In April 1995 Larry M. Bell, 9932 Old Lincoln Trail, Fairview Heights, IL 62208 (618) 235-7743, provided me (RCL) a package of Newby information that contained several new sources. Included was:

- Extracts from Birth, Marriage, Death Registers - Dublin.
- Isabella Roddom's will (mentions Nathan and Gabriel).
- List of subscribers for a Meeting House, Dublin, 1685.
- John Newby family list.
- Register photocopies.
- "The Newbys of England and Ireland" by Wm. Perry Johnson, 1962.
- His son Nicholas' ahnentafel.
- "The Newby Family from Wm. to Emra 1637-1981" by Larry Bell, July 1992.
- "William Newby Family" by Clifford Hardin.

Unfortunately, there is little information or quotation of source for this earliest Newby. All that is said is that he was born before 1592 probably in County Northumberland, England. From this baptismal records of his children in Easington, County Durham, England, there were other Newbys present therein the early 1600s, e.g., Thomas Newbie, Marola (?) Newbie, Nicholas Newbie, Juliana Newbie.

William married someone.

His children were:

One good book (for Ellyson research) is Tidewater Virginia Families by Virginia Huchenson Davis, and another is Maryland Virginia Colonoials by Dolinite. However, another genealogy from SC "Mills-Smith A South Carolina Family" by Laurens Tenney Mills lists the Bible pages of Elizabeth Ellyson Erwin of SC where she listed her lineage in the latter part of the 1700s and it takes the Ellysons back to a John Ellyson and his wife Ellin Hamilton of Lanark Scotland. John came to Va. in 1610, and his wife followed about 1615/16 and they lived at Archer's Hope at Jamestown.

Roy, Here is some information from a genealogy by Laurens Tenney Mills called "A South Carolina Family: Mills-Smith and Related Lines" with an addenda by Lilla Mills Hawes and Sarah Mills Norton, copyright 1960, pg. 64:

Bible Records. Elizabeth Allison Ervin's Bible (In 1958 copy of this record obtained from Miss Julia Ervin, Rt. 3, Darlington, S.C. - note: this Bible disappeared after her death. Lillian Etter thinks that the family of Sen. Sam Ervin might possibly have it).

This Bible (printed in London by Robt. Barker, 1613) has no secton for births, marriages, deaths, but she used blank page to record the following:

My father, Robert Allison, passed 1772. (the name during long years has been/spelt, Allyson, Ellison, Elison, Allison, etc.) My mother was Mary Lide or LLoyd,(drt. to Robt. Lloyd from Wales to Penn. abt 1683.) My grparents were John Allison/and Elizabeth Matthews of Va. He being son of Robt. and Ann Myhill. He being son of/ Capt. Robt. Allison & Hannah Gerard of Maryland & Va. He being son of Robt. Allison/ & Sarah Spence of V. He Being son of John Allison, Ellyson b. Windyedge/Lanark, Scotland, who marr'd with Ellin Hamilton came to Va. in early days bef." 1625. The first ones of our family lived in Va. & Maryland/

These Bible pages are the only thing I've found so far to take the Ellyson family back that far. In "Tidewater Virginia Families: A Social History" by Virginia Lee Hutcheson Davis, printed in 1989 and since reprinted by Gen. Pub. Co. She could only go back as far as Robert 3. Sharon Doliante wrote "Maryland and Virginia Colonials:" and it was pub. by Gen. Pub. Co.abt 1990- same thing.

Our line is through Robert Ellyson (3) and wife either Hannah or Elizabeth [as an Eliz. was in the vicinity and is thought to have been his wife], then to Gerrard Robert (4) and wife Anne Myhill, then to Gerrard Robert (5) and wife Sarah _____., then to Agatha who married John Crew Jr. Our line would split with that on Mrs. Irvin after Robert Allison and Anne Myhill and our line continues as Quakers. I don't think her John Allison of the fourth generation were Quakers. There is much controversy waging as to just who the wife of Robt Ellyson was (Hannah of the Bible record or Elizabeth). It is also thought by some that she was a dau. of Dr. Thomas Gerrard of Maryland and later of Va. However his dau Eliz. is said to have married 3 times, none of her husbands having been an Ellyson! Gerrard also had a dau. Susannah who is on the A.F.as wife of Robt. Ellyson. But she also marr. twice, and was line continues as Quakers. I don't think her John Allison of the fourth generation were Quakers. There is much controversy waging as to just who the wife of Robt Ellyson was (Hannah of the Bible record or Elizabeth). It is also thought by some that she was a dau. of Dr. Thomas Gerrard of Maryland and later of Va. However his dau Eliz. is said to have married 3 times, none of her husbands having been an Ellyson! Gerrard also had a dau. Susannah who is on the A.F.as wife of Robt. Ellyson. But she also marr. twice, and was married at the time when she might have been marr. to Ellyson, to Robt. Slye of Maryland. Another gen. has stated that Hannah Gerrard was the dau. of a Samuel and Jane Gerrard, who were Quakers and in the records in 1699, and who came as French Huguenots to Va. I'm suspicious of this, as they would have been pretty ancient and doubt they might have still been alive in 1699, if parents of Hannah. That gen. is "Genealogy of the Gordon-Macy Hiddleston-Curtis and Allied Families" by Jessie Gordon Flack and Maybell Gordon Carman pub. 1967 privately. The only sources they cite for this are: Hinshaw's Ency; Genealogy of the Macy Family by Joel Munsell, 1868; Lineage Books of Daughters of the American Colonists, IV,119, "Robert Elyson was Burgess from James City County, Virginia, sheriff, and in 1656/63 rank of Capt."

Roy, Have you been able to take the Ellyson line back any farther in Scotland? My friend, Kathy, who is a descendant of John and Ellin Hamilton Ellyson is hoping I can find an ancestral home or something equally as exciting. Also, I found one source that says that Ellin's father was Sir Robert Hamilton. Do you agree and have you a location for him? Thanks! Brenda

1708. Henry Watkins, son of Henry Watkins and Alice Moslin, was born in 1637 in Malvern Hills, Henrico, Virginia and died in 1717 in Malvern Hills, Henrico, Virginia at age 80.

General Notes: Source: The Curd Family in America, The Tuttle Publishing Co.

Henry Watkins of Henrico Co., Va, presumably the immigrant ancestor was b. in 1638. He was a Quaker and member of the Society of Friends, a fact that caused him at times to clash with the ruling authorities in Virginia. In the list of heads of families in Henrico County, 1679, he is listed as head of family with three tithables and shown as living in the vicinity of Turkey Island. In 1679 he received a patent for 170 acres of land on the north side of James River in Henrico Co. adjoining land of John Lewis, Mr. Cocke, and Mr. Beauchamp, and touching the 'three runs' of Turkey Island Creek (patent book 7, p. 17). In July 1690 he purchased of Lyonel Morris 360 acres of land in varina parish, Henrico Co., on the south side of Chickahominy Swamp, and in October of the same year he patented 60 acres of land "adjoining his own land and touching a run of Turkey Island Creek." In 1699 he subscribed 500 pounds of tobacco towards building the Friends meetinghouse at Curls and in 1703 he paid 50 pounds of tobacco towards finishing the building. He was the father of at least seven childred and in 1692 deeded his land in Henrico to his five sons. To William, Joseph and Edward he deeded each 120 acres of land on the south side of Chickahominy Swamp, to Henry the 'track of land on which his father then lived" acreage not given, and to Thomas 200 acres on the 'three runs.' We quote from William Clayton Torrence, "Beginnings of the Families of Henrico," as follows:

One of the most interesting families in Virginia from the point of view of economic, social and political development is the distinguished family of which Henry Watkins is the immigrant ancestor.

1704 Quit Rents of Virginia lists Henry Sr. with 100 acres in Henrico County.

Source: Henry Watkins of Henrico County, Jane Allen 1985.
That Henry Watkins was the son of Henry, born 1585 in Wales, remains to be proved. However, in 1634/35 there was a deed in which John Cawsey of Charles City County conveyed to Walter Aston acreage in Charles City near Shirly Hundred "bordering south upon a Creeke called Henry Watkins, his Creeke." A Henry Watkins, therefore, lived not more than a few miles from the home in 1679 of Henry, born 1637/8.

Henry Watkins was a small but hard working farmer. As a member of the Society of Friends, or Quakers, he clashed with the authorities.

In 1660 the Virginia Assembly had passed a strict law against Quakers. They were described as:

... an unreasonable and turbulent sort of people, who daily gather together unlawful assemblies of people, teaching lies, miracles, false visions, prophecies, and doctrines teneing to disturb the peace, disorganize Society and destroy the peace, disorganize Society and destroy all laws, and government, and religion.

In June, 1684, the Courts of Henrico refused his petition for a remission of fines imposed upon him "he not appearing himself to supplicate this Court but (as ye Court Conceives) continuing still in his Quakerism."

His daughter Elizabeth also held his loyalty to his faith. At the age of 16 in April, 1685, she refused "for conscience sake" to swear to a deposition she had made. The Henrico County Court ordered her imprisonment. In June she was again brought to the bar and "still persisting in ye same obstinacy as she pretends out of conscience sake and seconding her request the court have out of their clemency in consideration of her young years remiteted her offence and releast her of her confinement."

On 21 January 1691/2, Henry Watkins conveyed 120 acres each to his sons Edward, William, Joseph, Henry, and Thomas near the Chickahominy. He also on 25 Janurary 1691/2 made a gift of land "I now live on" to Henry Watkins and 200 acres to Thomas Watkins.

Henry made his will in November 1714, proved 7 February 1715, Henrico County, Virginia.

Jane Allen has different birthdates for nearly all of the children. She has:
Edward
Henry c.1660
Mary (JA has this Mary married to Nicholas Hutchins.)
William c.1667
Elizabeth c.1669
Rachel c.1670 (Rachel is not included in the Curd text above.)

Roy;
...

I have much additional information that I'd like to share with you, but I'll have to do it in stages. Following is one of the most interesting, and probably controversial bits to consider.
This regards Katherine (Pride) Watkins, wife of Henry Watkins (b. 1637) and ancestor to us both. Apparently there was a very unsavory court case in Henrico Co., in 1681 involving Katherine. I stumbled on it some years ago in a book citing examples of colonial court cases. I quote a portion of it here:

KATHERINE WATKINS' CASE, 1681.
Henrico County Deed Book, 1677-1692, 192-195

The examination of Katherine Watkins, the wife of Henry Watkins of henrico County in Virginia had and taken this 13 of September 1681 before us William Byrd and John Farrar two of his Majesties Justices of the County aforesaid as followeth (vizt.)
The said Katherine aforesaid on her Oath and examination deposeth, That on fryday being in the Month of August aboute five weeks since, the said Katherine mett with John Long (A Mulatto Belonging to Capt. Thomas Cocke) at or neare the pyney slash betweene the aforesaid Cokes and Henry Watkins house, and at the same tyme and place, the said John threw the said Katherine downe (He starting from behind a tree) and stopped her Mouth with a handkerchief, and tooke up the said Katherines Coates [i.e., petticoats], and putt his yard into her and ravished her; Upon which she the said Katherine Cryed out (as she deposeth) and afterwards (being rexuced by another Negroe of the said Cockes named Jack White) she departed home, and the said John departed to his Masters likewise, or that way; after which abuse she the said Katherine declares that her husband, inclinable to the Quakers, and therefore would not prosecute, and she being sicke and her Children likewise, she therefore did not make her complaint before she went to Lt. Col. Farrass, which was yesterday, morning, and this day in the morning she went to William Randolphs' and found him not at home. But at night met with the gentlemen Justices aforesaid at the house of the aforesaid Cocke in Henrico County in Virginia aforeaid before whom she hath made this complaint upon oath . . .

((my note: and here we get the other side of the story))

The deposition of John Aust aged 32 yeares or thereabouts Deposeth, that on fryday being the twelvth of August or thereabouts he came to the house of Mr. Thomas Cocke, and soe went into his Orchard where his servants were a cutting downe weeds, whoe asked the deponent to stay and drinke, soe the deponent stayed and dranke syder with them, and Jacke a Mulatto of the said Thomas Cocke went in to draw syder, and he stay'd something long whereupon the deponent followed him and coming to the doore where the syder was, heard Katherine the wife of henry Watkins say (Lord) Jacke what makes thee refreaine our house that you come not oftner, for come when thou wilt thou shalt be as well come as any of My owne Children, and soe she tooke him aobut the necke and Kissed him, and Jacke went out and drawed Syder, and she said Jack wilt thout not drinke to me, who sayd yes if you will goe out where our Cupp is, and a little after she came out, where the said Thomas Cockes negroes were a drinking and there dranke cupp for cupp with them (as others there did) and as she sett Negroe dirke passing by her she tooke up the taile of his shirt (saying) Dirke thou wilt have a good long thing, and soe did several tymes as he past by her; after this she went into the roome where the
syder was and then came out agine, and between the two houses she mett Mulatto Jacke a going to draw more syder and putt her hand on his codpiece, at which he smil'd, and went on his way and drew syder and she came againe into the company but stay'd not long but went out to drinking with two of the said Thomas Cockes Negroes by the garden pale, And a while after she tooke Mingoe one of the said Cocke's Negroes about the Necke and fling on the bedd and Kissed him and putt her hand into his Codpeice, Awhile after Mulatto Jacke went into the Fish roome and she followed him, but what they did there this deponent knoweth not for it being near night this deponent left her and the Negroes together, (He thinking her to be much in drinke) and soe this deponent went home about one houre by sunn . . .
----------------
I have the testimonies of four other witness, who back up the depostion of William harding. I'll send them along in the next message.
I did notice that you cited, Roy, about Henry Watkins "In 1679 he received a patent for 170 acres of land on the north side of James River in Henrico Co.
adjoining land of John Lewis, MR. COCKE, and Mr. Beauchamp, and touching the 'three runs' of Turkey Island Creek." So, (Capt. Thomas) Cocke, was indeed a neighbor, and apparently the owner of the slaves involved in this case with Katherine Watkins.

Katherine married Henry Watkins. Henry was born in 1637 in Malvern Hills, Henrico, Virginia and died in 1717 in Malvern Hills, Henrico, Virginia at age 80.

1740. William Borton, son of Borton and Unknown, was born on 29 Nov 1590 in , Aynho, Northamptonshire, England and died on 25 Mar 1656 at age 65.

General Notes: According to Jerry Bickerdyke (Jerrybic@aol.com) in 1997, I had Elizabeth born in 1606, which is what the ancestral file shows, but her first child was born in 1616. A GEDCOM file in Kindred Konnections posted by Chester & Ella Asay shows birth abt 1594, which looks more reasonable.

The Paternal Ancestry of Richard Ratcliff of Chapel Hill, Forest Rossendale, Lancashire, England and St Michaels,Talbot Co., Maryland.

1 Ivo (or John) de Tailbois the brother of the Earl of Anjou (Anjou a province bordering on Normandy in France) was born probably in Anjou, or Normandy, France, c 1020 AD Ivo married Lucia, a daughter of Earl Aelfgar, and therefore granddaughter on the paternal side of the great Leofric, and her mother's side of Gruffydd, King of Wales. Ivo was known as "Argon of Kendal" and after the Conquest he shared Copeland,. Kentdale, and the lands south of the Ribble River with Count Roger de Poitou. Ivo de Tallbois, or the name when anglicized, John Talbot, was one of the most illustrious families of Normandy. Ivo went to England 1066.

Issue:
Aelftred de Tailbois "The Englishman" born c 1045. He was succeeded by his son and heir:

Gilbert de Furnesco de Tailbois born c 1070 m Goditha.:

Children:
1. William de Tailbois b c 1095, know as William de Lancaster, "The First" 2. Nicholas de Tailbois b c 1097 Nicholas Fitz-Gilbert de Tailbois a knight, was granted the Manor of Radeclive from his lord, and may have been the one who built Radcliffe Tower, the ruins of which may still be seen near Radcliffe in Lancashire. In any event Nicholas deTailbois assumed the name of de Radcliffe, no doubt because of his residence in or near the village of Radcliffe, so named because it was built along the red banks of the River Irwell. It is thought that Nicholas married a Saxon girl, perhaps a lady of the Booths.

Children:
1. Mathew de Radcliffe born at Radcliffe Tower, c 1122 owned lands in Oswaldtwissel, in Lancashire, which he exchanged with his brother, Hendry for land in Herton.
2. Simon de Radcliff born at Radcliffe Tower, c 1124, demised lands in Radcliffe for a term of years to Henry de Oswaldtwissel. #3 Henry de Radcliffe born at Radcliffe Tower, c 1126.

3072. George Hussey, son of Thomas Hussey and Bridget Bowes, was born about 1551.

General Notes: I have been told that the New England Genealogical and Historical Society (as of 1991) does not recognize any Hussey genealogy beyond John Hussey, born in Dorking about 1570. However, Dora Davenport Jones (Mrs. Jo Buck Jones), The Village Apts. 4717 Wellesley, 143, Fort Worth, TX 76107, in 1988 (now deceased) researched and compiled a genealogy that traces the line back seven generations prior to that John Hussey.

Mrs. Jones indicates that John Hussey is the son of George II, last generation on "Lincoln Pedigrees".

Source: The reference included for George Hussey is MS. C.23, Herald's College. "History of Doddington" by Rev. R.E.G. Cole.

In my (RCL) research, I have found many references to Hugh Hussey being the father of John Hussey, father of our Christopher Hussey, the immigrant. As you see, I have chosen to identify this George Hussey as John's father. Here is an exerpt from the Hussey Manuscript:

George Hussey, son of Thomas Hussey and Jane Townshend Hussey, was born about 1520. Of this individual nothing more is known, however some researchers suggest that he, rather than his brother, Hugh Hussey, was the father of John Hussey. Hugh Hussey, son of Thomas Hussey and Jane Townshend Hussey, was born about 1524. He was married about 1558 to Ellen Devereaux. Children born to Hugh Hussey and Ellen Devereaux Hussey reportedly include: John Hussey born in 1559 John Hussey, son of Hugh Hussey and Ellen Devereaux Hussey, was born in 1559. Some reseachers claim that he was the individual who was married February 5, 1593-94 to Mary Wood. It has been documented that Mary Wood Hussey was the mother of Christopher Hussey, progenitor of much of the Hussey descendants in the United States. Documentation is lacking to prove Christopher Hussey a son of John Hussey.

George married someone.

1536       i.  John Hussey (born in 1570 in Dorking, Surrey, England - died before 24 Jul 1632 in Dorking, Surrey, England)

3136. William Jessop .

General Notes: Source: The Ancestry of ALLEN GRINNELL CLEAVER and MARTHA IRENE JESSUP - 172 Allied Families - Compiled by WILLIAM JESSUP CLEAVER, 1989.

The name Jessup is said to have been derived from Joseph or the Italian equivalent Giuseppe. This in turn has been extended in the family tradition in Yorkshire (ably collected by the Rev. Jasper Newton Jessup in 1908) that the first Jessups were Roman soldiers of the fourth century occupation of Britain. Kirkburton Church (where early records of this branch of the family are found) was erected in the thirteenth century and during a later restoration the uncovering of a broken crusifix gives evidence of fourth century Christianity. One of the first names in the Kirkburton parish Registers which dates from 1540-41 is Johana Jesope. A Roman camp and fort were excavated in 1907 near the church. Of course the use of Biblical derivation was popular in the era when surnames were being developed. Conjecture about the origin of any name has to be no more than conjecture. Some early wills are signed Joseph alias Jessop, however the name does not appear to be Anglo-Saxon or Norman.

This early presence in Virginia of Henry I is further supported by "The Complete Book of Emigrants 1607-1660" by Peter wilson Coldham. On page 46, the text indicated that on 28 February 1624, a Henry Watkins signed a report from the Governor and Council of Virginia at James City to the king rebutting the accusations against the plantations made by Captain Nathaniel Butler, Six thousand, not ten thousand, persons have been transported to Virginia who, for the most part, were wasted by the cruelty of Sir Thomas Smyth's government.

This same page indicates that Henry Wattkins, Peregree Wattkins, and Daniell Wattkins were living (in 1624) at the Eastern Shore.

According to Jane Allen's text "Henry Watkins of Henrico County", Henry Watkins was in Accomack County, Virginia, before 1621 and settled on the Eastern Shore. As mentioned above, Henry was the overseer of the Dale Plantation. Sir Thomas Dale had died in 1619 and Henry made a claim against his estate for six barrels of corn.

Henry Watkins of the Old Plantation was one of the first two Burgesses to represent the Eastern Shore at the 1623 Assembly. He was one of the listed burgesses on laws and orders concluded by the General Assembly 5 Marcy 1623/24.

On 3 July 1624 he was one of the signers of a petition of the Governor and Assembly of Virginia to the King as to the true state of the plantation.

In 1625 John Taylor made a disposition about a transaction which happened when Henry Watkins had been oversser for Lady Dale "about the tyme of our Lord 1620".

Jane Allen's text is the source of Henry's children.

3480. Borton .

General Notes: Source: Ancestral Lines Revised - 190 Families in England, Wales, Germany, New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Compiled by Carl Boyer, 3rd, New Hall, CA 1981

Freeman Clark Mason's History of the Borton and Mason Families in Europe and America was for years the most comprehensive work on the Borton family, but the book did not reflect scholarly methods of research, being for the most part simply a compilation of names, relationships and dates. Mason contended that all Bortons living in America in 1908 were descendants of John Borton, and stated further that John Borton was probably the only member of the English Borton family to belong to the Society of Friends. This latter point was challenged in 1971 by Nellaray Holt (201 E. Holmes, #A6, Selah, Wash 98942), who compiled a genealogy of 8227 Bortons and related people, and stated that the Protestant Returns of Oxforshire for 1641-42 listed many Bortons who broke from the Church of England, the implication being that probably several of them were Quaker.
