bullet  General Notes:

Oliver Weaver, The Hartsfield Family of Marcus Hook:

Of the three sons of Godfrey and Katherine who migrated to North Carolina with Godfrey, Andrew settled in that part of Johnston County which in 1770 became Wake County. Here he was closely associated with the McElroys, who as noted above, had lived near the Hartsfields on the west bank of the Susquehanna River in Maryland. Born in 1714, probably in Gloucester County, New Jersey, Andrew was probably married about 1736 and probably in Baltimore County, Maryland. He was the father of four children at the time his father, Godfrey, purchased the Sandy Run tract. This Andrew, son of Godfrey, was the ancestor of all of the Hartsfields listed as heads of households in the 1790 U.S. Census for Wake County, N. C. He was also the father of Jacob Hartsfield who in 1790 lived in Franklin County, North Carolina.

Eric Hartsfield:

The most recent thing I have submitted to the USGenweb is a map of land grants in Franklin County, North Carolina. The grant shown for Jacob Hartsfield in 1762 is where I believe Andrew Hartsfield (1713-1762) lived from the late 1740s until he moved to what is now Wake County about 1757. The creek running through the grant is called Andrew Hartsfield's Mill Creek on some of the adjacent plats to the west ("Middle Fork of Crooked Creek" on Jacob's grant) and also called Andrew's Creek and Jacob Hartsfield's Mill Creek. I wrote a letter over a month ago (with a self-addressed stamped envelope) to the present owner of a 176 acre parcel near the middle of Jacob Hartsfield's grant where I suspect Jacob's plantation house and cemetery were probably located but have not heard from her.

The land grant which follows was sent to us, and we made photo-copies for this book, by Mr. J. A. Hartsfield, III of Wake Forest, N.C. Portions of the land mentioned are still owned by descendents of Jacob Hartsfield. I don't remember seeing the original document nor trying to read it but as can be seen by the many blank spaces and the (?) questionable words [which meant that I was unsure of their correctness], the copy that we have for the book is very difficult to read.
