(1) Solomon1 Lewis was born in 1750 in Cumberland Co., NC, and in 1780 in Cumberland Co., NC, married Catherine Moon who was born in 1759 in Cumberland Co., NC. Solomon died on 6 Mar 1845 in Claiborne Co., Tn. Catherine died on 25 Aug 1845 in Claiborne Co., Tn.

Date: Tue, 04 Jun 96 23:32:37 -0700
From: dale lewis <dlewis3@ix.netcom.com>
Subject: WILLIAM LEWIS - WASHINGTON CO. NC (TN) 1750-1838

Hello Karen I wrote to Joseph Payne about the possible connection of SOLOMON LEWIS and FIELDING LEWIS, in Claiborne Co TN, both had come from North Carolina and were of similar age. FIELDING LEWIS (PLF:8L225) was born 15 May 1768 in Virginia, but raised in Wilkes Co.NC by his uncle GEORGE LEWIS= (PLF:833L100).=20

SOLOMON LEWIS (PLF:570L100),was born in Cumberland Co. NC 1750. He was living in Surry Co. NC, at the time of his first enlistment in the Revolutionary War, and served several 3-6 month enlistments, amounting to a total time of 2 years 6 months. He was supposed to have been at Kings Mt. and the Guilford Court House battles. This would have put him in the general area of NW NC and East Tenn. in 1780. He was also married to CATHERINE MOON in 1780 in NC, but no record as yet, except his pension claim. CATHERINE MOON was also born in Cumberland Co.NC in 1759. After the war, (no dates), he moved to Henry Co.VA., then he moved to Washington Co.TN, in the Greasy Cove area, next to or with, WILLIAM LEWIS. SOLOMON LEWIS shows up at the estate sale of THOMAS HOWELL, in 1806, with WILLIAM LEWIS, and on the taxables in 1807 and pays taxes on 100 acres.

This WILLIAM LEWIS (PLF:555L100) has been my target and, I believe, my ggggrandfather. SOLOMON LEWIS had two daughters, ELIZABETH"POLLY"LEWIS (b. 1 Jan 1781) and CATHERINE"MOLLY"LEWIS (b.ca1782). They married DAVID ROGERS (b 3Oct1779) and WILLIAM ROGERS (b.ca1778),respectively, and moved to the Speedwell area of Claiborne Co.TN, with their husbands father, JOHN ROGERS (b.ca1750) originally from Wythe Co.VA. JOHN ROGERS supposedly, also fought at Kings Mt and lived in Washington Co.TN prior to moving to Speedwell in 1798-99. JOHN ROGERS is said to have had three wives, with a total of 25 children. His first wife was supposed to have been a BRITTIAN (BRITTON), the second an ASHER, and the third is unknown.There is record of JOHN ROGERS marrying ELIZABETH ASHER in Washington Co.TN, 17 Jan 1788 (Wash Co. Wills & Marriages Vol.O, pg 110). DAVID and WILLIAM ROGERS stayed in the area of Speedwell, with their families, but many of the children moved to Missouri, Virginia and other parts of TN.=20

Some time after 1807 SOLOMON and CATHERINE LEWIS moved from Washington Co. to the Speedwell area of Claiborne Co., living with, or near, DAVID and ELIZABETH (LEWIS) ROGERS the rest of their lives. JOHN ROGERS died 5 Jan 1822, and never applied for a pension. SOLOMON LEWIS applied, and was allowed a pension, 22 Dec1832,claim R-6309. SOLOMON and CATHERINE had more children than the two daughters, but the only other LEWIS in the Speedwell area was SOLOMON LEWIS JR in the 1830 census (Cl-143), next to JOHN ROGERS JR (Cl-143), both ages 30-40, with families. No record of other children. SOLOMON LEWIS SR was living near DAVID and WILLIAM ROGERS families (Cl-138-139) in 1830 census. SOLOMON LEWIS died 6 Mar 1843, at the age of 97 years. CATHERINE LEWIS died 25 Aug 1845 at the age of 86 years.There was mention that a grandson lived in Missouri, when SOLOMON died in 1843. JESS ROGERS was the administrator of CATHERINE"S estate, no relationship recorded, but believe he was her grandson. =20

WILLIAM LEWIS (PLF: 555L100) of Greasy Cove,Washington Co.NC, was born ca 1750-55. There could be a link with WILLIAM and SOLOMON in Cumberland or Bladen Co's NC. WILLIAM LEWIS first shows up on the Wills and Inventories of WASH. Co. NC, at the Estate sale of JACOB BROWN in april of 1786. August of 1786 William Lewis shows up on the voters roll in Jonesboro,Wash.Co. NC. WILLIAM LEWIS has a Land Grant of 440 acres on Cedar Creek, next to PHAROAH COBBS line, then south to YOUNGS line, then east to WARDS line and then north to starting point.This land grant was transcribed by the entry taker, No.780, on 7 Aug 1787 to ROBERT LUCAS, but in fact, the North Carolina Archives have No.780 listed, and granted, to WILLIAM LEWIS.The same day NATHAN LEWIS was granted 200 acres on Gap Creek, No 776. No relationship has been established between them,if any exists. Pat Alderman, who was a local Historian for UNICOI Co, which is part of the area of the old Greasy Cove, stated that "most of the early Greasy Cove residents had participated in the battle at Kings Mt." WILLIAM LEWIS is on all the taxable lists , that survived between 1788 and 1811. In 1788 WILLIAM LEWIS'S neighbors on the tax rolls were, JAMES WARD, JOHN YOUNG, and JOSEPH YOUNG. These were taken in CAPT GUDGERS district by ROBERT LOVE, also a King Mt. veteran and prominent in Washington Co politics.=20

Though I can't find any records of pension, or application for pension for WILLIAM LEWIS, I'm sure he was very active in the local militia, which was headed primarily by COL JOHN SEVIERS. In the spring and summer of 1793, there were increased attacks on isolated settlers in Washington Co. and Col. John Sevier gathered a large unit of mounted militia and headed south to the Cherokee settlements and towns, and to the Battle of Etowah. SEVIER left approximately the 25 Sept 1793. On the 10 Oct 1793, while Mr. WILLIAM LEWIS was away from home, a band of twenty- eight Indians, in the early morning, attacked and killed MRS LEWIS and five of her seven children. One son managed to get away to the cane brakes along Indian Creek and make his way to the Blockhouse in the Temple Hill area. He reported the attack to a young Lt. NATHANIEL TAYLOR, who pursued the Indians to the French Broad River, but without success.=20

The Indians took a young daughter of WILLIAM LEWIS, who was later ransomed for a rifle and some powder. This was recorded in the Knoxville Gazette, 23 Nov 1793, Vol.2 No.25,pg 3, col.1-2, and in 2 Jan 1794, Vol.3 No. 2, pg 2, col.1-2 . WILLIAM LEWIS' house and barn were burned down by the Indians during the attack and were located on the south end of Indian Creek . There is a Creek named "GRANNY LEWIS", where his farm was supposedly located, that runs into Indian Creek. The 1799 taxables list WILLIAM LEWIS SR and WILLIAM LEWIS JR. This is the only reference to the son who escaped and reported the massacre. I don’t know the name of MRS LEWIS or any of the children that were killed. The daughter who was ransomed was supposedly MARY 'POLLY' LEWIS born ca 1790. MARY LEWIS married CANADY RIGSBY (WRIGSBY) in Carter Co. in 1809. WILLAIM LEWIS SR , as was tradition, remarried very soon after the incident. His second wife name was SARAH 'SALLIE'_________. They started a second family that produced three more daughters and three more sons. WILLIAM LEWIS, by his first marriage, had WILLIAM LEWIS JR (b ca 1778) and MARY"POLLY"LEWIS (b ca1790). The first child born of his second wife is uncertain, but I think it was LOUCRETIA LEWIS (b ca 1794-95) -This is totally unsubstantiated! =20

Next was ELIZABETH "BETSEY" LEWIS (b 1796), BENJAMIN LEWIS (b1798), HIRAM LEWIS (b1800), RUSSELL LEWIS (b 1804) , KESIAH LEWIS (b 1807). WILLIAM LEWIS JR married unknown-possibly lived in Knox Co. MARY 'POLLY' LEWIS married CANADY RIGSBY, Carter Co TN 1809. LOUCRETIA LEWIS married unknown ,possibly JOHN JULIN (JULIAN)Knox Co TN. ELIZABETH 'BETSEY' LEWIS married JOHN HUTCHINS (HUTCHINGS) White Co TN, ca 1814. BENJAMIN LEWIS married CHARITY-------------- ca 1820, possibly White Co TN.HIRAM LEWIS married ELIZABETH JANE CAROLINE KIRK,ca1821 White Co TN. RUSSELL LEWIS married DELILAH MOORE, ca 1830 White Co, Rutherford Co TN. KESIAH LEWIS married JOHN RIGBSY, ca 1825 White Co TN.

The next record WILLIAM LEWIS appears in is 1806, on the 27th-28th of June, at THOMAS HOWELLS Estate Sale and SOLOMON LEWIS is also there. This was recorded in the Wills and Inventories of Washington Co TN, pages 179-180. WILLIAM LEWIS bought one old Razor and one old Bed Tick, while SOLOMON LEWIS bought 5 Bushels corn. CHARLES HUTCHINS was there, his son JOHN HUTCHINS married ELIZABETH"BETSEY" LEWIS, WILLIAMS daughter. THOMAS RIGSBY was there with JAMES RIGSBY. Two of WILLIAM LEWIS' daughters marry RIGSBYS. JOHN DILLARD and ROBERT LOVE were there also. The HUTCHINS ,DILLARDS and LOVES had married into each others families and were close. They were from Culpepper Co. VA .Unfortunately I've been unable to link any connection to these three families with WILLIAM LEWIS, until they all arrive in Washington Co NC(TN) in the 1790's.=20

There was a Will from Bath Co NC-"Abstracts of Wills-1690-1760" by GRIMES, and lists: WILLIAM LEWIS- Wife -MARY LEWIS 1731-5 AUG 1732-Sons: WILLIAM LEWIS JR & SOLOMON LEWIS. Daughters: ELIZABETH (LEWIS) SINCLAIR, MARY (LEWIS) DUDLEY, MAGDALENE (LEWIS) BIGFORD, & EDITH ' EDY' (LEWIS) BENSON - There is the possibility that the families are connected. The names of HANSON LEWIS (PLF:15L922) ,in relationship to JOSIAH LEWIS (PLF: 15L936),JAMES LEWIS (PLF:15L937b) AARON LEWIS (PLF: 15L937a) are recorded in BLADEN Co in the 1763 Census. HANSON LEWIS shows up as follows:' Deeds 10 May 1794 of New Brunswick Co. NC, 120 acres on "OLD TOWNE CREEK", part of 320 acres Patented to WILLIAM LEWIS, 9 Dec 1735. JOSIAH LEWIS SR had deeded SARA SMITH 100 acres, and SOLOMON LEWIS purchased 120 acres, with the remainder 100 acres as HANSON LEWIS'S.' Again, there is only name linkage and commonality, but no substantiating records. Back to WILLIAM LEWIS of Greasy Cove, TN, I find him on the taxables until 1811, at which time he and the RIGSBYS, HUTCHINS and probably others, moved to White Co, in the Cedar Creek area, outside of Sparta TN. Again, he is found on the Taxables for 1812 for White Co and several Deeds and Land Grants are listed in the next few years. The 1820 & 1830 Census's shows the HUTCHINS, RIGSBYS, JULIANS and LEWIS' in the same general area of White Co, and that they purchased lands in WARREN Co and DEKALB Co. WILLIAM LEWIS died Aug 1838 and his will was probated at that time. BENJAMIN LEWIS was the Executor of the Estate. WILLIAM was possibly buried in the NORRIS- POLLARD-BAIN Cemetery by Walling, White Co ,TN, no markers were found. The Will mentions the children of his second marriage and three grandsons that were living with him. The grandsons were DENNIS JULIN (JULIAN), JAMES W. JULIN and GEORGE W. JULIN . These three JULINS (JULIAN) grandchildren are thought to have been LOUCRETIA'S, again = speculation.

The following names are of interest in Washington Co NC(TN) area during the 1770's-1800's:JOHN LEWIS, JAMES LEWIS SR & JR, NATHAN LEWIS, AARON LEWIS, NATHANIEL LEWIS,TURLES or (SURLES) LEWIS, 'KAN' (RIGSBY) FOSTER, WILLIAM & JOHN BLEVINS, GEORGE CLOUSE, CHARLES HUTCHINS, THOMAS RIGSBY, ROBERT LOVE, ZACARIAH ISBELL, GEORGE & WILLIAM RUSSELL, JOHN ROGERS, SOLOMON LEWIS.

The William Lewis from New Hanover County you mention in your website is my direct ancestor. This is not the same William Lewis that lived in Washington Co. William Lewis, Jr.'s children were James, Mary, Jane, Jacob, and William III.
Hope this helps in your search. I am currently working on getting our Lewis genealogy on line.

Subject: Re: [LEWIS-L] Solomon Lewis of Claiborne County, TN
Hello,
I am very interested in your site. My grt grandfather was Thomas Neuton
Lewis who was born in MO in 1855. Family traditions says his father was
Solomon Lewis.
By 1860 Solomon and his wife were both dead and all the children were farmed
out to different families. I have been looking for the parents of Thomas
Neuton Lewis for 10 years. Thomas has no birth or death record. He married
into the Barrett line which came out of old Lincoln Co., N.C..
Thomas had two sisters, Viney (Lavina) and Louisa. These sisters
married into the Hovis and Punch/Puntch families. Both of these families are
from N.C. Solomon owned land in Stoddard County according to family
tradition. I am unable to location any land records. This is my mother's
line.
My father's line was from Claiborne, TN. John Stuard/Stewart/Stewart
who married Mary Miller in Claiborne, TN in 1812. 1st child born in 1813 in
Knox Co., KY. John served in the war of 1812 enlisting in KY. In the 1850s
he filed for a land grant and was awarded land in Duck Creek township,
Stoddard Co., MO. John and Mary's son, John Steward lived and died in Duck
Creek township, Stoddard Co., MO.
My parents married in Stoddard Co., MO. If you have any additional info
on the Lewis and Steward/Stewart line I would greatly appreciate hearing from
you. If anyone else connacts you about these lines please give them my
e-mail.
Thank You

"FIRST SETTLERS ON CLINCH AND IN POWELL'S VALLEY, CLAIBORNE COUNTY"

"The Act establishing CLAIBORNE COUNTY (from parts of HAWKINS & GRAINGER) was passed October 29, 1801.

"The first settlements in Claiborne County were made in POWELL'S VALLEY and along Clinch RIVER. Two Hundred Thousand acres of the lands included in the boundaries had been granted to HENDERSON & CO. under the terms of the settlement made with them.

"The County was named for WILLIAM CHARLES COLE CLAIBORNE, one of the first Judges of the Superior Court and the first member of the U.S. Congress from Tennessee.

"When the County was laid off, according to its boundaries, it included the lands theretofore obtained by purchase or otherwise by persons who had obtained such lands when they were a part of Hawkins County, of which they were also original settlers. It also included original settlers of the then GRAINGER COUNTY, who likewise had obtained their lands taken up when it was part of HAWKINS COUNTY. These facts explain why it is that some of the first settlers of CLAIBORNE COUNTY had also been first settlers of HAWKINS AND GRAINGER counties.

"Following is a list of the first magistrates of CLAIBORNE COUNTY, who were present at the house of JOHN OWENS in December, 1801, when the court of pleas and quarter sessions was organized:

"1. ISAAC LANE 2. JOSEPH WEBSTER 3. WILLIAM TRENT' 4. JAMES CHISHOLM 5. ABRAHAM LENHAM 6. JOHN WALLING 7. MATTHEW SIMS 8. JOHN VAN BIBBER 9. WILLIAM ROGERS 10. GEORGE READ 11. C. NEWPORT 12. JOSEPH NATIONS 13. JOHN CASEY 14. JAMES RENFRO

"The oath of office was administered to those persons gy ANDREW EVANS and JOSEPH COBBS, of GRAINGER COUNTY. The officers of the new County selected at this meeting were:

"ISAAC LANE, Chairman WALTER EVANS, Clerk NATHANIEL AUSTIN, Ranger JOSEPH NATIONS, Coroner EZEKIEL CRAFT, Register LUKE BOWYER, Attorney General *DAVID ROGERS, Sheriff

"*DAVID ROGERS failed to make bond, and JOHN HUNT, SR. was therupon elected to fill the vacancy thus created in the office of Sheriff.

"The next term of the court was held at the house of JOHN HUNT, who lived on the site of TAZEWELL. A town to be called TAZEWELL was selected as the county seat, and it was laid off and estblished on JOHN HUNT"S land.

"LUKE BOWYER came tothe settlement very early. He had been one of the first settlers of the WATAUGA SETTLEMENT.

"The first grand jury selected for the county were: JOHN HUNT WILLIAM GRISSON NATHANIEL AUSTIN SAMUEL TATE JACOB DOBBINS WILLIA BOWMAN WILLIAM STROUD JOHN WEBSTER NIMROD DODSON PETER NEAL THOMAS GIBBONS PETER HUFFAKER WILLIAM RUSH THOMAS JEFFERS HEZEKIAH JORDAN ELISHA WALLING** ARCHIBALD McKINNEY GEORGE SNUFFER

The third meeting of the court was held at the house of ELISHA WALLING. Commissioners to erect a jail in 1819 were:

JOSIAH C. RAMSEY ROBERT CROCKETT JOHN EVANS DAVID ROGERS WILLIAM RENFRO REUBEN ROGERS"

P. 196 "DAVID ROGERS OF CLAIBORNE COUNTY AND HIS FAMILY CONNECTIONS

DAVID ROGERS, who was the first Sheriff elected by teh County Court in Claiborne County in 1801, but who resigned his right to the office in favor of JOH HUNT, SR>< who was elected to serve in his place, was born in WYTHE COUNTY, Virginia (or what is now Wythe County) about the year 1777, and lived to the age of 94 years.

DAVID ROGERS was possibly the son of that certain JOHN ROGERS, who at session of the WASHINGTON COUNTY COURT on the 28th day AUGUST 1778 (American Historical Magazine, Vol 5, page 356) was mentioned in the following order:

Ordered, that a commission issue to JOHN COULTER and ISAAC SHELBY, Esq. to take the deposition of RUTH MORRIS, LYDIA CROSS, MARY TYE, and JOHN CROCKETT on behalf of JOHN RODGERS, defendant, the State Plaintiff.

The JOHN CROCKETT mentioned in this order, was the father of DAVID CROCKETT, the "hero of the Alamo, who was born several years after this order was passed.

Information about this ROGERS family is very meager. It is mere tradition that DAVID ROGERS was born in WYTHE County, Virginia, and that he was born in 1777. He may have been born earlier, and he may have been born in Washington County, or somewhere on the Watauga, since his father was undoubtedly there in 1778. It looks like, considering all the records available that JOHN ROGERS had children:

1. DAVID ROGERS 9 b. 1777-9) married MARY ELIZABETH LEWIS, b. GUILFORD CO>< NC, 1781 & died Claiborne Co., 1880 in her 100th year. 2. REUBEN ROGERS, of Claiborne Co., about the same time. 3. HUGH ROGERS married NANCY THORNTON of GREENE COUNTY, Oct. 1, 1788. 4. JAMES ROGERS married RHODA ALEXANDER, 1793, Washington Co. 5. JOHN ROGERS married ELIZABETH ASHER, Washington Co., 1788. 6. ROBERT ROGERS m. HANNAH TIPTON, Washington Co., 1793.

"DAVID ROGERS AND JESSE ROGERS SONS OF DAVID OF CLAIBORNE

"DAVID ROGERS in Claiborne County in 1801, and who married MARY ELIZABETH LEWIS (dau of AARON LEWIS of Watauga) had these children:

"1. DAVID ROGERS 2. JOSEPHINE ROGERS 3. JOHN P. ROGERS 4. SILAS I. ROGERS 5. HORACE M. ROGERS 6. SNEED ROGERS 7. W. R. ROGERS 8. MARY ROGERS 9. SARAH ROGERS 10. HUGH ROGERS 11. REUBEN C. ROGERS

"JESSEE ROGERS (b. 1811) and his wife MARGARET WILSON, were the parents of 1. JESSE L. ROGERS, an Attorney.

"JESSE L. ROGERS was born in Powell's Valley, Claiborne County, April 9th, 1855. Studied at Tazewell Academy & law at Lebanon, Tennessee. Represented Claiborne and Hancock Counties in the Legislature. Was a delegate to the Republican convention in Chicago that nominated Blaine for President. He married ANNIE McFETRIDGE, who was born in Ohio. In later years he removed to Dandridge, in Jefferson Co., Tennessee, where he practiced law until the time of his death.

Fielding Lewis, born May 15, 1768 in Virginia; died August 06, 1852 in Sandlick, TN. He was the son of 128. Lewis. He married 65. Mary Gambill 1790 in Wilkes County, North Carolina.
65. Mary Gambill, born 1773 in Virginia; died 1852 in Sandlick, TN. She was the daughter of 130. William Gambill, Sr. and 131. Mary Johnson Wash.

Notes
Researched by Karen Paramore, November 1, 1995 in Claiborne County Library, Tazewell, Tennessee.

Excerpt from "Old Time Tazewell" by Mary A Hansford. She wrote sketches of the people she remembered who lived in Tazewell before 1850.

Fielding Lewis, Sr. came to Tennessee in an early day. He was a native of North Carolina. He owned a large boundary of land about 7 miles west of Tazwell, known as the Sandlick. David Carr is living at the old homestead of said Lewis at present. He was a very wealthy man. He owned many hundred acres of land adjoining the Sandlick farm. He owned many servants also, and what was best of all, he was highly esteemed as an honorable man and a first-class citizen. His wife was Miss Mary Gambol. They raised a family of six sons and six daughters: William, George, Jessee, James, Peter and Charles. The daughters were Elizabeth, Polly, Sallie, Franky, Isabel and Martha.

From "Pioneer Lewis Families, rev July 5, 1992"

This is a revision of data on Fielding Lewis previously shown in Pioneer Lewis Families with corrections and additions included.

b. in Virginia May 15, 1768 (not 1767) according to an entry in a notebook kept by his grandson, 8L521 Christopher James "Kit" Lewis in which Kit entered the birth and death dates for several of his relatives. See page 731, Vol V for a copy of the original as written by Kit. This notebook is now in the possession of William (Bill) Beaver, Granby, Missouri, a grandson of 8L1171 Mary Frances (Lewis) Capps.

Fielding Lewis died August 26, 1852 at Sandlick, near Tazwell Tennessee, according to a letter written from Elizabeth (Moore) Lewis, the wife of 8L504 Charles Lewis, son of Fielding Lewis. He was buried at the Head of the Barren Church Cemetery, but the exact location is not known, if a tombstone existed, it was probably destroyed during the Civil War by soldiers that occupied the church. The names of the parents of Fielding Lewis and where they lived in Virginia have not been proven. One family tradition is that 8L102 David Lewis had a son, Fielding, who disappeared while living near Winchester, Virginia. A part of this same tradition is that there was another son, 8L225a David Lewis, but this also was not proven. Another somewhat different family tradition is told by Rosanne Lewis McCandless. She states that Elizabeth "Betsey" Moore Lewis, wife of Charles , that Fielding Lewis was born in or near Fredricksburg, Spotsylvania County, VA. George Lewis 833L100 George Lewis could be father or uncle of Fielding Lewis who had formerly lived in Culpeper County, VA before moving to Wilkes County, NC just prior to 1777 which is about the same time that George Lewis first appeared in Wilkes County, NC. The William Gamble family also lived in Wilkes County, NC.

Letter from Isham G. Leabow to William Lewis, August 24 ,1933
"My mother at one time told me that her grandfather, Fielding Lewis told her that he came here from Virginia. That his Uncle George told him and his brothers about the fine lands he had surveyed in Kentucky; that when they got to Cumberland Gap, they heard of a settlement at Fort Butler...and that they went from the Gap down to Fort Butler to stay a few days. While there he concluded to locate there, that his brothers went on into Kentucky and he went with them as far as the Cumberland River. That his brothers went up the River and William said he would go on to Boonesboro, that he'd never seen or heard from them afterwards...

"There is a grave of a John Lewis in the graveyard hear the Methodist Church at Chad, about 2 miles blow the present town of Cumberland. My recollection is that he died near 1850 and I am of the opinion that he was the brother that came with Fielding from Virginia. There are many Lewises now in Harlan. They claim there are two sets of them that cannot trace their relationships. But many of them are descendants of the John mentioned...Mother did not say that his Uncle George he mentioned claimed to be George Washington, but Washington did survey a great many tracts of land in Kentucky and practically every river bottom in Pell and Harlan Counties above Pineville. A similar account about Fielding's first trip to Tennessee is given by Martha Moore Jordan, Route 4 Box 4605, Stigler, OK 74462, in her treatise on SAMUEL MOORE, HIS FAMILY AND DESCENDANTS.

"Fielding was raised in North Carolina and in 1790-1791 married Mary Gamble, born 1773 Virginia. Allegedly, Fielding and his two brothers left for Kentucky ca 1792-1793. They arrived at the Clinch River in Tennessee too late at night to cross over. After spending the night, Fielding looks over the land and decides to stay. The two brothers continue on and nothing more is recorded of them "

While these two accounts of the trip to Tennessee varies in some of the details, the essential facts are the same and lend credence to this being how Fielding, ca 1792 or 1793, moved his family Westward across the Blue Ridge Mountains to Sandlick, about 7 miles West of Tazewell, TN.,in then Granger, now Claiborne County, TN. where the lived the rest of their lives. It should be noted that the Clinch River is about 25 miles from the Cumberland Gap and that Tazwell is located between the Clinch River and the Gap and is very likely the area where Fielding and his brothers spent some time before John and William went on into Kentucky and Fielding never saw them again.

While 2 of Fielding's brothers have possibly been identified, based largely on family traditions, Fielding's parents and sisters are still unidentified. However there are two additional items of data that may eventually help to identify them. It is known that Fielding had at least two sisters living in North Carolina in 1850 when Fielding went from his home in Sandlick, TN to North Carolina to visit them. A letter dated November 18, 1850, written by one of Fielding's sons to another son, Charles Lewis, Linn Co., MO said:

"Brother Charles I will now say something concerning your father and mother. They are well as much as people of their age. The old man went, this fall, to North Carolina to see his sisters and found them well, so I am informed." In this letter, there is no mention as to their names, where they lived, etc.

There is a possibility that Fielding's name was not just Fielding Lewis, but T. Fielding Lewis. On May 16, 1870, Fieding purchased for $1.00 in Claiborne County, Tennessee, a book 'HISTORY OF VIRGINIA by J. W. Campbell, published by J. W. Campbell in 1813. Some of the handwritten entries, apparently made by Fielding, seem to indicate his name was T. Fielding Lewis. This HISTORY OF VIRGINIA book passed from Fielding to his son 8L503 George Washington Lewis, to his son 8L521 Christopher James Lewis, to his son 8L1174 George Erwin Lewis and is now in the possession of Mrs. Dixie Haase, Granby, MO.

If his name was actually T. Fielding Lewis, it could explain why his son 8L317 Fielding Lewis when writing letters, even before his father's death, never signed his letters as Fielding Lewis, Jr. as was true in his May 8, 1852 letter to his cousin "Alphred" which was signed merely "Fielding Lewis."

When reviewing Clairborne County Court records for 1800-1840, there were many instances where Fielding Lewis was appointed Juror of Circuit Court sessions. Most of those notations were to appoint Fielding Lewis as a "Jury" membor to "view and lay out" various roads in the surrounding area. It is obvious that in addition to a landowner, Fielding had expertise as a surveyor as did decendants of Betty Washington Lewis and Fielding Lewis. George Washington's main profession was that of a surveyor.

i. Elizabeth Lewis, married Elijah Harp 1838.

iii. Martha Patsy Lewis.

iv. Mary Ann "Polly" Lewis, married Samuel Moore.

67. Nancy Bowyer, born 1770 in Pennsylvania; died 1852 in Claiborne County, TN. She was the daughter of 134. Luke Bowyer.

Excerpt from "Bullard Family" lineage

John Bullard, Sr. was born ca 1760-1770. I am not certain of his birthplace, but his father, Joseph, was in Greene County Tennessee as early as 1776. John was living with or near his mother, Martha, in Jefferson County, Tennessee after the death of his father. John appears in Grainer County Court records as early as 1798 and later in Claiborne County. I am including a copy of his will and a chronological list of court records. John was married to nancy ?? who was born in Pennsylvania in 1770. Nancy died in 1851-52 in Claiborne Clounty. It is possible Nancy could be the daughter of Luke Bowyer, an early Tennessee lawyer although I do not have documentation.

Doherty Origin

The Doherty family belongs to that group of clans, known in the Celtic genealogy as Cinel Connell, whose homeland was called Dirconnell, modern county Donegal. These clans trace their origins to Conall Gulban, son of Niall of the Nine Hostages, High King of Ireland, A. D. 379. The ancient Gaelic name, O'Dochartaigh, is variously anglicized as Dogherty, O'Doherty, Dogherty and Daugherty. The original territory of the sept was the barony of Raphone and their stronghold was at Ardmire. Later they extended their way over all Innishown, the peninsula most commonly associated with the Doherty name today. The Annals of the Four Masters record one O'Doherty Chieftan as the chief of all Tirconnel in 1179, A. D. Despite their dispersal and confiscation of their lands, the descendants of the Doherty clan today stands 15th in the list of commonest surnames in Ireland.

 

Owen Doherty,1797, County Louth, Ireland

Posted by: Ursula Sellers

Is anyone researching the Doherty Family in County Louth, Ireland, My g g grandfather Owen came to America before 1829, I am trying to find out when he immigrated and who his parents were.

Re: Owen Doherty,1797, County Louth, Ireland Posted by: Cindy Durkin Spheeris
My g.g.grandfather was an Owen Doherty. He lived in Scranton PA when his children were born. My g.grandmother, Anna, was born in 1874, she had 2 sisters, Margaret and Bess and 1 brother, Jerome. May have lived in Lackawana County. The name Gilmartin is involved somewhere along the line too. Any of this sound familiar?

Owen Doherty from County Louth, Ireland, came to America before 1829-1832. His parents were Hugh Doherty and Mary Burns.

Line traced to Donegal, Ireland

**********Irishowen in Donegal.....OWEN was popular given name for Doherty

 

 

 

SONG about Lord Cahir O'Dogherty

In the north, by summer's light
When days that lengthened are still bright
We gather the wealth of friends, once foes
to join in harvest and feast no woes
As pipes are lit and fiddles tuned
and whiskey sipped for the voice to soothe
the tails of long ago come forth
about the lines once drawn by loathe

From the stone moss covered graves
Upon the Hills of Castle Green
the singer's tells how heritage was sown
There once is the land of Inishowen
At sixteen, Cahir did see his father slain
When the Spanish fleets, they never came
and there in the year Sixteen- o- one
he became Chief of Kinel-
Owen

 

Fostered was he by cousin Macdevitt's clan
who freed him from O'Donnell's hand
And so brave was he in the field of Augher
that he, Lord Inishowen became knighted there

Then came the Flight of Earls
When to Spain, sailed the Tryconnel's
Though faith's own change may be the cause
British reign still became an Irish lose

It was in Sixteen- o - eight
That the Planet's charted luck so gray
For from the rafters hung the head
Of pour Lord Inishowen, he was dead

So, I hear the stories of families I never knew
Who fought for lands on which they grew
And like so many more, lost their lives
For castles that now in ruins lie

So along the lines of Belfast, that once did divide
I see them dance, in many kilts, they are clad
Patterns worn, before so many deaths did reign
Once forward, once around and then back again

Rock of Doon
Castle Green, Island of
Owen, Burt Castle, Buncrana Castle, Red Castle, Culmore,Inch Island. Property of Lord of Innishowen
(Enishowen.)

August, 1990, during the ODochartaigh Clan Gathering, the Rock of Doon, (near Kilmaccrennan) where Sir Cahir ODogerty was slain- the inauguration of Doctor Ramon S. ODogherty, of Cadiz, Spain, as the 37th Chieftain of the Clan, the first since the death of Cahir Rua in 1608. He had proven his direct decendancy from the brother of Sir Cahir Rua who fled Donegal in the Flight of the Earls.

Private Robert Farlis sumner county tennessee

I have a Willie Farless in my line who's parents were JOHN FARLESS and BETTY LOU HARROD. John's parents were MARTIN FARLESS and ? Mary Dalton. Martin was married 2 or 3 times. Would love to compare information.

My GGG Grandfather is William Farless, Sr., born ca. 1800. He married Mary Creeley and had two sons: Martin and James, both born in Warren County, Tennessee in the 1830s. Does anyone know anything about him? Did he have other children? Who were his parents? Where was he born? This portion of my family tree ends here, and I'd love to know more about him and especially his ancestors.Thanks!

I also have a Willie Farless in my family line. I believe that yours is farther back.
I have a Willie Farless who is the child of John Farless and Betty Lou Harrod. Does this fit in your line. They are from the Cannon Warren and Coffee County area of Tennessee. I show that
Martin Farless was John's father.
