COODY FAMILY GENEALOGY Arthur Archibald Coody, Sr. ( 1735 - 1782 ) Arthur Archibald Coody, Sr., was born about 1735 (believed) in Rowan Co., N. C., possibly the son of Thomas Coody, a.sp. Coode, and died Jun. 1782 in Horn's Creek Community, Edgefield, Edgefield Co., S.C. He married first, (tribal ceremony ) about 1757, E-ughi-oo-te, also known as, Elizabeth Coody, a full-blood Cherokee woman of the Long Hair Clan. Pvt. Arthur Archibald Coody, Sr. was with the 42nd. Foot, 2nd. Regt., Georgia Militia, under the command of Gen. James Edward Oglethorpe. His enlistment began about Jan. 1, 1757 and was for seven years, to end 31 Dec. 1764. He departed without his Cherokee wife leaving his two small children to be reared in the Cherokee Nation, TN., with their full-blood Cherokee mother They had the following children : 1 Arthur Archibald "Archy" Coody, Jr. 2 Nancy Coody [Note: it is believed that E-ughi-oo-te (Elizasbeth) married (tribal ceremony) Ludovic Grant in the early 1750's and they were the parents of a daughter, Mary Grant, a half-breed Cherokee and a half-sister to the above. When historians start documenting the union they used her newer name of Elizabeth Coody, thus causing a lot of confusion to some.] Arthur Archibald Coody, Sr. married second, about 1764 in Granville Co., S. C. (now Edgefield Co., S.C.) Edith "Eadey" Vann, born about 1750, the daughter of Edward Vann, Sr., of Granville Co., S.C.3 Edith Vann Coody died about 1804 Lincoln Co., Ga. Their children: 1 Lewis Coody 2 Esther Coody 3 Rachel Coody 4 James Coody 5 Edward Coody 6 Zephaniah Coody 7 Joseph Coody A small Indian Town in the Cherokee Nation, called Vann's Town, is located near Chickamauga Creek. (The town was reduced to ashes by a raid led by Col. John Sevier. This village was near the place on the Tennessee River where Arthur Archibald "Archy" Coody, Jr. met the voyagers with Capt. John Donalson's expedition in 1780.) Ft. Oglethorpe Military Encampment was located on the GA. - TN. border. General James Olgethorpe's Regiment of 42nd Foot was in theory and extension of three Independent Companies of South Carolina created in 1720. Support for this regiment was difficult, as Parliament was opposed to increasing the standing army, but Oglethorpe finally secured the approval of the Ministry and support of the Trustees and on August 25, 1737 the officer commissions were signed. The actual order for establishing the regiment was not signed until October 17. This Royal Warrant authorized a regiment of six companies, with three officers, four sergeants, four corporals, two drummers, and one hundred privates each. Field officers were assigned to a company and included a chaplain, surgeon, adjutant, and quarter-master. Recruitment took place in England where the new soldiers were equipped with arms and drilled daily in St. James Park before their departure. Major William Cook recruited and trained another part of the regiment. At Southhampton, five transports with 700 passengers - soldiers and their families - embarked on July 5, 1738, arriving in Georgia on September 18. Inducements for enlisting included a five acre grant of land in Georgia with a twenty acre bonus at the end of a seven year enlistment. Wives and families were welcome to go to the colony with the Trustees supporting them for the first year. Another part of the new regiment was drafted from the Earl of Roth's Regiment the 25th Foot, which was stationed at Gibraltar. Six drummers and two hundred fifty privates were transferred to Georgia and arrived at Savannah on May 8, 1738, in convoy commanded by Lieutenant Colonel James Cochran. In Georgia the Independent companies of South Carolina joined these troops and formed three companies of the new regiment. Olgethorpe also received thirty-eight men of the Black Watch who had mutinied. Lieutenant William Horton went to England in 1740 as a recruiter. He became a captain of a grenadier company of thirty men and also recruited for the regiment. In 1742 Olglethorpe sent a recruiter to Virginia and Maryland. Some of the soldiers who had served in the Cartagena Expedition in Gooch's American Regiment (disbanded October 24, 1742) enlisted in Olglethorpe's Regiment. In 1743 Oglethorpe returned to England. During the trip he recruited for the regiment and for a new company of rangers and scouts. They were enroute to America on the Success when the Jacobite Rising of 1745 occurred. The Success was diverted to defend the town. In 1745 the rangers were moved to York to guard rebel prisoners. They did not sail for Georgia until 1746. Other units serving in Georgia included a troop of English rangers commanded by Captain John Cuthbert (died 1739), Lieutenant Robert Scroogs (promoted 1739), Cornet Moses Nunes, and Thomas Hunt (joined 1742). A troop of Highland rangers under the command of Captain James McPherson had a complement of thirty men plus three officers. They were embodied as militia before being placed on the regular establishment in 1738. There were four officers, ten noncommissioned officers, and one hundred private soldiers. The company Marine Boatmen was under the command of Captain Mark Carr, Captain-Lieutenant Noble Jones, and Lieutenant John Wymyss. This unit was disbanded on June 24, 1847. It had three officers, five noncommissioned officers, and one hundred privates. When the war with Spain was over, the regiment was disbanded. A detachment of the Independent Company of South Carolina was at Fort Fredrica until March 1764 when the regiment was disbanded. A detachment of the First Battalion, Royal American Regiment, was at Fredrica from March 1764 to 1765. Officially the regiment was reduced May 29, 1749. Transports left Savannah on July 7, 1749 with three hundred fifty persons who wanted to return to England. Captain Heron (formerly Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment) took three companies, redesignated the South Carolina Independent Companies, to new stations in South Carolina, leaving a housekeeping detachment at Fort Fredrica.

Note:
Waymon Coody suggested that Arthur Archibald Coody was the son of Thomas Coody (Coode) because Thomas was the only Coody that could be found in historical documents prior to Arthurs' birth. It is felt that this might be far reaching, but no other Coody has been found. It is also suggested that Arthur was a descendant of John Coode of Maryland, but again no proof has been found. In later years several Coody children were sent to Maryland for their education, thus is is presumed that there were some family ties to that area. This subject is still under investigation, and hopefully one day will be resolved. ntblntblntbl
