From Katherine Woerner

To Kathie Pearson








Kathie,




Here are the children of William Willingham 1797 will Columbia Co., GA. I have included the proofs. I have additional information on some of the children; should you be interested in a particular child, just let me know. You mentioned that there was another Willingham family in Wood Co., TX. The son, Caleb, of William's daughter, Martha/Patsy m1. her cousin Reuben Willingham, son of Isaac Willingham d. 1810 Columbia Co., GA m. Martha Brasfield moved to Wood Co., TX.

WILLIAM WILLINGHAM b. 1748/1749 Lunenburg Co., VA, m. ca 1770-1773 Nancy, will dated Oct 1797 Columbia Co., GA, proved 11 Jan 1798 Columbia Co., GA. William is son of John Willingham b. ca 1725 VA m. Ann, son of John Willingham will 1751 Lunenburg Co., VA m. Mary. [tax list Granville Co., NC of father, John, copy of will of William in GA Archives, copy of will of grandfather, John in Archives of Lunenburg Co., VA GenWeb site.



Land Court held Mar 5, 1787 Richmond Co. Court House, GA

William Willingham 400 acres headright of Wife and 13 Children on Kegg Creek (tributary of Little River, presently in Columbia Co., GA).

[National Genealogical Society Quarterly Vol. 56]



Many believe that this is the son, William, of John Willingham b. ca 1725 VA; William Willingham b. 1748/49, listed as a son of John on the 1767 Granville Co., NC tax list, was in Granville Co. NC until at least 1782 There is strong evidence to indicate that this William, son of John, is the same as William with the 1797 will in Columbia Co., GA. Support for the previous statement:

This William is closely associated with the John Knott family of Granville Co., NC. John Knott gave his "trusty friend", William, his power of attorney and Elijah Willingham, oldest son of William,

proved the will of John Knott in Granville Co., NC. There is some speculation that Elijah's first wife was a daughter of John Knott. I'm of the opinion that this William Willingham is the one who is on the Granville Co., NC tax lists prior to William going to Columbia Co., GA. [Katherine Woerner]

May 30th 1774. Columbia Co., GA R/July 17, 1795. JOHN HILL to JOHN KNOTT of Granville County, S.C. (Greenville) for 20 pounds, 100 acres of west side of Germany Creek, bounded by the Quaker road, AMBROSE HOLLIDAY on S. and SAMUEL WILSON on west.

Dec. 29th 1790 Columbia Co., GA, r/Feb 17th 1795. Power of Attorney. JOHN KNOTT to WILLIAM WILLINGHAM to recover notes, money or property due him.

Nov. 16th 1798. Columbia Co., GA r/Feb. 23rd 1799. JOHN KNOTT of Granville County, N.C., to JOHN DAVIS for $236, sells 100 acres on the Quaker Road, bounded by BROWNSON's land on south. SAMUEL WILSON on west, JOHN LEE on north and east. Originally granted to JOHN HILL, April 2nd 1771, by said Hill conveyed to JOHN KNOTT, May 13, 1774.





William Willingham?s will dated 25 Oct 1797 and proved 11 Jan 1798 Columbia Co., GA; William m. Nancy (maiden name unproven) [Copy of will.] Wife and children are named in William?s will.

Both documents were made 21 Dec 1819 and witnessed by John Garnett and William B. Willingham. I do not know why the heirs did not sell directly to Reuben. Reuben then sold that property, 180 acres more or less, to William Jones on 2 Mar 1821 for $450. From the document..."180 acres more or less on the waters of Keg Creek and bounded by lands of the said William Jones southwardly westwardly northwardly and eastwardly and by Isaac Willinghams land southeastwardly and granted to John Willingham on the twenty-second day of July in the year of our lord one thousand seven hundred & eighty five and conveyed by the said John Willingham to William Willingham and Spalding and by the heirs of William Willingham, decd, to William Willingham and by William Willingham to Reuben Willingham and the said Reuben Willingham to the said William Jones."

SUMMARY BY KATHERINE WOERNER. 21 Dec 2003; 14 July 2011

William Willingham's will written Oct 1797 and proved 11 Jan 1798 in Columbia Co., GA, an

Heirs Sale by his children 22 Nov 1820 in Columbia Co, GA which names the spouses of some of his daughters, and the distribution of the estate of his daughter, Elizabeth Willingham Davis in 1855 in Tuscaloosa Co., AL, who left her estate to her siblings or their heirs, establish the children of William and Nancy to be:



1. Elijah Willingham b. ca 1774 [>21 in father?s will 1797], d. <1855 [not named in sister's estate records and no heirs are named], m.<1811 Elizabeth Garnet, daughter of Eli Garnet and Sarah [will of Eli Garnet].

North Carolina, 1800 Census, Granville Co.M32 Roll 31 page 525 : Willingham, Elijah 16-26 b. 1774-1784, pg 525 00100-00000-00 [by himself and >24 from father?s will, but so was Thomas, so Elijah must have been almost 26 in 1800 and born 1800-26=1774 or close to that. It?s possible that Elijah married first in Granville Co., NC (Have been told that he married a daughter of John Knott; no proof, but Elijah is in a record concerning John Knott [don?t know where that reference is at the moment]) and his wife died before the 1800 census and then Elijah married second to Elizabeth Garnet.

NOTE: William, father of Elijah, lived in Granville Co., NC before he moved to Richmond/Columbia Co., GA. [tax, land]



2. Thomas Willingham b. ca 1776 [>21 in father's will 1797; Thomas might marry near the age of 21 ca 1797; 1820 Morgan Co., GA census > 45] d. < 1855 [heirs named in sister's estate records] m. <1811 Sarah Catherine Garnet, daughter of Eli Garnet and Sarah [will of Eli Garnet]. We know that Thomas was married by March 1804 the latest date to register for the 1805 GA land lottery because he got two draws.

FAMILY OF THOMAS

In reply to: Holliday/Dorroh connection
11/11/99



This information was compiled by the Dorroh Family History Project.

James Dorroh/Holliday Mystery
James Dorroh/Holliday Mystery
There is an apparent relationship between a Captain James Holliday, also known as James Dorroh and the family that became Dorroh in Laurens County, South Carolina. We have yet to determine just what that connection was and why James Holliday was called James Dorroh (Dorrah, Dorror, Dorrer). The known facts are:
1.His 17 Oct 1850 will states "I, James Holliday, otherwise called James Dorroh" and goes on to name his wife Martha Dorroh as Executrix of his will. After debts are paid, he leaves the estate solely to her. No children are mentioned. Source: Laurens County, SC Will Book A, page 288, Bundle 129, Package 5. Will proven 6 Oct 1857
2.Pioneers In Their Own Rights by Henry Poellnitz Johnston states Captain James Dorroh died 17 Sep 1857, age 57 making him born in 1807. The age listed is apparently a typographical error. A separate tombstone survey listed his age as 50 years making the birth date 1807 as above. He, and wife Martha Dorroh, are buried at the Union Baptist Church Cemetery between Reedy River and Rabourn Creek on SC Highway 252, south of Friendship Presbyterian Church. There are a number of Dorrohs buried at the FriendshipCemetery but none at the Union Baptist Cemetery. The Downey family has several graves at Union Baptist Cemetery.
3.Johnston also states buried beside James Dorroh is "Mrs. Martha (Hamilton) Dorroh, wife of Captain James Dorroh ?.. died 18 Jul 1873, age 74" making her born 1799. A separate tombstone survey does not mention her maiden name of Hamilton. This was determined separately.
4.Johnston states Martha Hamilton Dorroh?s 28 Aug 1858 will shows that "Mary Downey and her husband, Samuel Downey, are the closest of kin residing in the State of South Carolina. It is also brought out that Martha has a brother residing in the State of New York, named Alexander Hamilton, which verifies her maiden name, and she has also a sister living in Ireland ""beyond the seas"". Her nephews James Downey and John Hamilton (J. H. may be a brother- see next item) were appointed trustees." Her will is "recorded in Laurens County Will Book B, pages 279-280 and letters on page 597". Will was proved 21 Jul 1873.
5.The 6 Oct 1842 will of Jane Hamilton "bequeaths unto my son Samuel the tract of land were on I now live, and also the tract I purchased from James Dorrah and Alexander Culbertson, provided however, that if Alexander Hamilton my son, and my son in law James Coles should come to this country, he is to provide them with a place to settle and live on until they can have the opportunity to procure a place for themselves."Jane Hamilton then bequeaths other property secondly to her son John Hamilton and his daughter Jane Hamilton; thirdly to son Andrew Hamilton; fourthly to son Alexander Hamilton; fifth to daughter Martha Dorrah; sixth to daughter Mary Cowns (Downs, Downey?); seventh to daughter Eliza Scolds; eighth to grand daughter Eliza Downs. Sons Samuel and Andrew were appointed executors. Laurens Will Book A, page 41, bundle 189, package 10. The will was proved 30 July 1844.
6.Jane Hamilton?s will ties her to James Dorrah (Holliday) through a land purchase and, as note above, marriage to her daughter Martha. We do not know where this land was. Land ascribed elsewhere to James Dorroh, Sr. or James Dorroh, Jr. may be this land.
7.23 Feb 1819-20 Mar 1821.William Holliday, Sr. to James Dorroh, Jr. - Deed of gift, negro boy Sam, 14 months. Witness: Mary and S. B. Lewers. Deed Book K - p 320.
8.16 Oct 1821-31 May 1822. James Dorroh and David MCallough purchase, for $120, 170 acres on the west (?) side of Reedy River, bounded on lands of David Turner, Mary Mitchell and others. Land was seized from the estate of Richard White, deceased, and sold at auction by Laurens District Sheriff Allen Barksdale. Witness: Elias Brock, Mathew Holliday. Alfred Perritt, Justice of Peace. Deed Book L, p 57. Which James Dorroh was this - James Dorroh, Jr., James s/o William, James Holliday?
9.1822-1June 1827. William Holliday to James Dorror (Dorrer), for $300, 88 acres (per plat), on the waters of Rabourn Creek bounded by land of Thomas Hood, John Galberths. Witness: Robert Holliday, Thomas Hood. Charles Williams, Justice of Peace. Laurens Co., SC Deed Book L, p 257. This probably James Dorroh/Holliday.
10.4 Apr 1854. John Vaughn to James Dorrah, for $500, 130 acres lying on waters of Reedy River and bounded on landsof Andrew Hamilton, Widow Mary Cooper, Alexander Culbertson, James Dorroh (not sure if James Dorroh is part of bounded or start of next sentence). Witness: Samuel Hamilton, A. Hamilton. Sworn statement by T. Hamilton. J. W. Simpson, Notary Public. Laurens Co., Deed Book Q, p 66. Note: This is probably James Dorroh/Holliday.
11.The Dorroh Old Field Cemetery, near Friendship Presbyterian Church in Hickory Township, Laurens Co., SC, contains the graves of the emigrants James Dorroh and wife Jane Brown Dorroh. There are reportedly 20 - 30 graves, most are unmarked except for field stones, i.e., no inscriptions. One, however, is inscribed " to the memory of William Holliday, deceased, who departed this life Oct. 18, 1826, age 70."The foot stone is marked W. H. Next to this is a grave with the head stone badly broken with the word Holliday visible. The foot stone is marked M. H. (wife or son?).

5.The 6 Oct 1842 will of Jane Hamilton "bequeaths unto my son Samuel the tract of land were on I now live, and also the tract I purchased from James Dorrah and Alexander Culbertson, provided however, that if Alexander Hamilton my son, and my son in law James Coles should come to this country, he is to provide them with a place to settle and live on until they can have the opportunity to procure a place for themselves."Jane Hamilton then bequeaths other property secondly to her son John Hamilton and his daughter Jane Hamilton; thirdly to son Andrew Hamilton; fourthly to son Alexander Hamilton; fifth to daughter Martha Dorrah; sixth to daughter Mary Cowns (Downs, Downey?); seventh to daughter Eliza Scolds; eighth to grand daughter Eliza Downs. Sons Samuel and Andrew were appointed executors. Laurens Will Book A, page 41, bundle 189, package 10. The will was proved 30 July 1844.
6.Jane Hamilton?s will ties her to James Dorrah (Holliday) through a land purchase and, as note above, marriage to her daughter Martha. We do not know where this land was. Land ascribed elsewhere to James Dorroh, Sr. or James Dorroh, Jr. may be this land.
7.23 Feb 1819-20 Mar 1821.William Holliday, Sr. to James Dorroh, Jr. - Deed of gift, negro boy Sam, 14 months. Witness: Mary and S. B. Lewers. Deed Book K - p 320.
8.16 Oct 1821-31 May 1822. James Dorroh and David MCallough purchase, for $120, 170 acres on the west (?) side of Reedy River, bounded on lands of David Turner, Mary Mitchell and others. Land was seized from the estate of Richard White, deceased, and sold at auction by Laurens District Sheriff Allen Barksdale. Witness: Elias Brock, Mathew Holliday. Alfred Perritt, Justice of Peace. Deed Book L, p 57. Which James Dorroh was this - James Dorroh, Jr., James s/o William, James Holliday?
9.1822-1June 1827. William Holliday to James Dorror (Dorrer), for $300, 88 acres (per plat), on the waters of Rabourn Creek bounded by land of Thomas Hood, John Galberths. Witness: Robert Holliday, Thomas Hood. Charles Williams, Justice of Peace. Laurens Co., SC Deed Book L, p 257. This probably James Dorroh/Holliday.
10.4 Apr 1854. John Vaughn to James Dorrah, for $500, 130 acres lying on waters of Reedy River and bounded on landsof Andrew Hamilton, Widow Mary Cooper, Alexander Culbertson, James Dorroh (not sure if James Dorroh is part of bounded or start of next sentence). Witness: Samuel Hamilton, A. Hamilton. Sworn statement by T. Hamilton. J. W. Simpson, Notary Public. Laurens Co., Deed Book Q, p 66. Note: This is probably James Dorroh/Holliday.
11.The Dorroh Old Field Cemetery, near Friendship Presbyterian Church in Hickory Township, Laurens Co., SC, contains the graves of the emigrants James Dorroh and wife Jane Brown Dorroh. There are reportedly 20 - 30 graves, most are unmarked except for field stones, i.e., no inscriptions. One, however, is inscribed " to the memory of William Holliday, deceased, who departed this life Oct. 18, 1826, age 70."The foot stone is marked W. H. Next to this is a grave with the head stone badly broken with the word Holliday visible. The foot stone is marked M. H. (wife or son?).
One might suspect that James Holliday/Dorroh/Dorrah and Mathew Holliday are the sons of, or, at least kin to William Holliday. This would be speculation however. We do not know the connection of this Holliday family to the Dorroh family.

In Reply to: Re: Lewis Bobo Rhodes--Maybe by Phillip Rhodes of 6878


Hi,

You have hit upon a issue, that is shared among others... Please remember that Mr Clark was aged and didn't have high tech to assist him... With that said, it doesn't bring us any closer. He is accurate to a great degree... actually, impressively, considering he didn't have easy access to records, this to his credit...

Beware that other Rhodes researchers have formulated their own opinions, just as I have, on John & father Wm Rhodes, there were other Wm Rhodes and I am sure John's... The Benjamin / Christopher Rhodes families in Spartanburg were related to Wm/John of Union, I believe Christopher was Wm Jr's brother... I believe there was a Wm Rhodes in the Edgefield area as well...

The John Rhodes b.abt 1761 Possibly in Old 96th or later Union Dist SC, whom I belive is the son of William Rhodes Jr 1724-1788 (died in Union Co SC), married to Elizabeth Wofford 1739-1788, and may have also been married to Mary Wofford.

There are deeds that show a relation between Wm and John in Union Co SC.

I base my connction on the fact that my White family also lived in Union Co SC, 3 of our White's married into the Rhodes line, who moved to Richmond Co. Also, The White's are related to the Bobo's of Union Co SC. The Rhodes came back and forth betwen Union/Spartanburg and Richmond Co GA, visiting and marrying...

John Rhodes b 1761 married Mary Polly Bobo abt 1796 in Union Co, we know this to be true as we have Estate/Guardianship records to attest. Mary Bobo Rhodes moved back to Union Co with her natural children after John's death and lived on her 152 acres in that co.

Lewis Rhodes, was the son of John Rhodes and Elizabeth Bobo, John's 1st wife, she was born ca 1765 d.bef 1796 probably in Union Co.

Lewis of course married Mary White.

As I say, this is how I see the available evidence as far as this John Rhodes and his father Wm Rhodes Jr.

Some of the White's of Union moved to Spartanburg 1807/1819, Lewis and Mary's son Absolom came back up to Sptg and married Mary's niece, Susan Cooper White, and took her back to Richmond Co GA. Another Example; Mary Bobo Rhodes brought her daughter Sarah back up to Union Co SC to marry Tilman White, they both moved back to GA and disappeared...Warren White of Sptg moved to Richmond Co for a time, his aunt Mary and sister Susan Rhodes were still living there...

Because of our close ties with the Rhodes family, I have studied the connection with great interest and am always searching for more...

John Rhodes b. 1797 I have no knowledge of, to my current knowledge John Rhodes b. 1761 had no John's in his family, and neither did his son Lewis.

JOHN RHODES of Richmond Co., it is my belief that Aaron, Benjamin, Nancy, Mary R, William, Absolom Sr, and Elizabeth Rhodes were siblings of John's, this is one part of Mr Clarks book, where I believe he had his own doubts, from the data I have reviewed I am led to believe they were his brothers and sisters, instead of a cousin.

In the end I can only vouch for my Rhodes connections, from Union to Richmond Co, these I feel I have a handle on...


In the records of Madison AL you can find this:

Madison County Alabama Court:

Original Bill, Dated 20 December 20, 1832:
"....Daniel Davis Sr. married Elizabeth M Pate and had by her orators: Nathan, Daniel, Jacob, and Ellen...Daniel Davis died..leaving Elizabeth M enciente with orator William Davis who was born about 5 months afterward....After about 3 years Elizabeth married Micheal Coyle and had 2 children by him...John and Stephen...Micheal Coyle had by a previous marriage William, Benjamin and Irvin...Micheal Coyle died about the year 1818.....Elizabeth then married Benjamin Wofford, her present husband. Said Elizabeth is of the county; and she and Jereiah Pate of Morgan AL, both of whom are advanced in years, are the only persons living and known to orators and by whom they can prove the above facts"
Sworn by David K Davis

This Elizabeth Pate was born about 1783 in VA. and her husband Benjamin Wofford was born about 1772-1774 in SC

Which ever Benjamin Wofford she married he was approx. 10 years older than her.. They moved to Tippah County Miss. and are on the 1850 census there...where I assume they died

I have no knowlege of the Wofford family other than this..

If anyone has any information on Elizabeth M Pate (Davis, Coyle, Wofford) please contact me...Or information on any other Pate connection on this family.

Many believe that this is the son, William, of John Willingham b. ca 1725 VA; William Willingham b. 1748/49, listed as a son of John on the 1767 Granville Co., NC tax list, was in Granville Co. NC until at least 1782 There is strong evidence to indicate that this William, son of John, is the same as William with the 1797 will in Columbia Co., GA. Support for the previous statement:

This William is closely associated with the John Knott family of Granville Co., NC. John Knott gave his "trusty friend", William, his power of attorney and Elijah Willingham, oldest son of William,

proved the will of John Knott in Granville Co., NC. There is some speculation that Elijah's first wife was a daughter of John Knott. I'm of the opinion that this William Willingham is the one who is on the Granville Co., NC tax lists prior to William going to Columbia Co., GA. [Katherine Woerner]

SUMMARY BY KATHERINE WOERNER. 21 Dec 2003; 14 July 2011

William Willingham's will written Oct 1797 and proved 11 Jan 1798 in Columbia Co., GA, an

Heirs Sale by his children 22 Nov 1820 in Columbia Co, GA which names the spouses of some of his daughters, and the distribution of the estate of his daughter, Elizabeth Willingham Davis in 1855 in Tuscaloosa Co., AL, who left her estate to her siblings or their heirs, establish the children of William and Nancy to be:



1. Elijah Willingham b. ca 1774 [>21 in father?s will 1797], d. <1855 [not named in sister's estate records and no heirs are named], m.<1811 Elizabeth Garnet, daughter of Eli Garnet and Sarah [will of Eli Garnet].

North Carolina, 1800 Census, Granville Co.M32 Roll 31 page 525 : Willingham, Elijah 16-26 b. 1774-1784, pg 525 00100-00000-00 [by himself and >24 from father?s will, but so was Thomas, so Elijah must have been almost 26 in 1800 and born 1800-26=1774 or close to that. It?s possible that Elijah married first in Granville Co., NC (Have been told that he married a daughter of John Knott; no proof, but Elijah is in a record concerning John Knott [don?t know where that reference is at the moment]) and his wife died before the 1800 census and then Elijah married second to Elizabeth Garnet.

NOTE: William, father of Elijah, lived in Granville Co., NC before he moved to Richmond/Columbia Co., GA. [tax, land]



2. Thomas Willingham b. ca 1776 [>21 in father's will 1797; Thomas might marry near the age of 21 ca 1797; 1820 Morgan Co., GA census > 45] d. < 1855 [heirs named in sister's estate records] m. <1811 Sarah Catherine Garnet, daughter of Eli Garnet and Sarah [will of Eli Garnet]. We know that Thomas was married by March 1804 the latest date to register for the 1805 GA land lottery because he got two draws.

1107 Jesse and Frances Hardman Willingham by Katherine Woerner

Alban Willingham b. 1791 is son of:
JESSE WILLINGHAM b. ca 1753 VA m. ca 1774 VA Frances ?Fanny? Hardman, daughter of John Hardman.

Jesse and Fanny Willingham?s children were born between 1774 and 1800. The children born after 1803 on the 1820 and 1830 Madison Co., GA census are probably grandchildren or children by Jesse?s second wife, Judith Goolsby. We now know that Jesse sold land with wife, Judy, after 1803 [land record] and that Jesse married Judith Goolsby in 1803 [GA marriage records], so the wife on the 1820 and 1830 census is probably Judith Goolsby Willingham and Bushrod and George W., the sons to whom Jesse left his Madison Co. land in 1831 are probably sons of Judith Goolsby Willingham.

SUPPORT STATEMENT
(1) Jesse and Fanny Hardman Willingham moved from Henry Co., VA between 1782 (tax Henry Co., VA) and 1785 (tax 1785 Wilkes Co., GA) to Wilkes/Oglethorpe Co., GA. Children born by 1782 were born in VA and those b. after 1785 were born in GA.
The 1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census, the 1820 and 1830 Madison Co., GA census, and Georgia marriage records with the knowledge that a marriage at that time was in the country of the bride?s family [B. Warren -Family Puzzlers] are used to determine the children of Jesse and Fanny other than Thomas who was in his own household on the 1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census. Oglethorpe 1800 census is online on the Oglethorpe Co., GA USGenWeb site.
Jesse Willingham p. 47, Capt. McCartey?s Dist. 3 males < 10, 2 males 10-15, 1 male > 45, 1 female < 10, 1 female 16-25, 1 female 26-44, 1 slave. I also have a scan of the original census sent to me by Wendell Wilcox.
(2) Alban Willingham b. 8 June 1791 GA fits the 1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census of Jesse and Frances Hardman Willingham and he does not fit census and other information on Jesse?s brother, Thomas Willingham, also of Oglethorpe Co., GA. Alban married in Oglethorpe Co., GA and on the 1820 Oglethorpe Co., GA census is listed next to William Hardman, Jr. (kin of his mother Frances Hardman Willingham.)

1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census, Capt McCarty?s Dist. p. 47 from photocopy for Jesse Willingham.
3 males < 10 (b. 1790-1800) [Jesse b. 15 May 1790 GA, Alban b. 8 June 1791 GA, William T. (Troy b. 1795 GA)]
2 males 10-16 (b. 1783-1790) [Samuel b. ca 1783 (VA or GA), Charles Hardman b. ca 1785 GA]
1 male > 45 [Jesse Willingham b. ca 1753 VA]
1 female < 10 (b. 1790-1800) [Betsy b. 1799 GA]
1 female 16-26 (b. 1774-1784) [Either Polly or Fanny b. 1784 VA or GA.]
1 female 26-45 (b. 1755-1774) [Frances ?Fanny? Hardman Willingham b. ca 1755 VA]

In Oglethorpe Co., GA we have these marriages:
Alban Willingham m. 28 Mar. 1815 Bedea Herring. A marriage was in the county of the bride at that time and there is only one candidate for the father of Bedea and that is John Herrin p. 21 in Capt. Hudspeth Dist. on the 1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census. John Herrin [1 m 10-16, 1 m 16-26, 1 m 26-45, 5 females < 10, 1 female 10-16, 1 female 26-45.] On the 1840 Chambers Co., AL census, Bedia is age 40-50 (b. 1790-1800); in 1800 she would be age 0-10 and could be any of the 6 daughters < 16 of John Herrin.
Alban Willingham is on the 1820 Lexington, Oglethorpe Co., GA census with 2 males < 10, 1 m 26-45 (Alban b. 1775-1794; b. 1791), 1 f 16-26 (Bedia b. 1794-1804; b. ca 1797-1799) in his household. Alban is listed next to William Hardman, Jr., probably his uncle or cousin, brother/nephew of his mother Frances Hardman Willingham.

Troy Willingham m. 20 Nov 1816 Elizabeth Bradley [Troy b. 1780-1790 as he is 40-50 on the 1830 Oglethorpe Co., GA census. 1816-21=1795.

Females who married 1805 to 1820 Oglethorpe Co., GA are:
Betsey Willingham m. 9 Jan 1817 Charles Hardman.
Fanny Willingham m. 27 Feb 1802 Reuben Weaver.
Polly Willingham m. 18 Jan 1802 Thomas Moon/
These females could be daughters of Jesse or daughters of Jesse?s brother, Thomas Willingham m. Judith Finch who also lived in Wilkes/Oglethorpe Co., GA.

In Jackson Co., GA we have this marriage:
Charles Hardman Willingham m. 4 Oct.1806 Annie Scott. ?Hardman? Willingham is on the 1830 Newton Co., GA census pg 43. age 40-50. Also there pg 43 is Jesse Willingham age 40-50 (b. 1780-1790). On page 55 is Thomas Willingham age 50-60, still here in 1840 age 60-70. It is believed that this is the Thomas and Rebecca Humphries Willingham on the 1850 Randolph Co., AL census. It has been proven by Jackson Co., GA tax records and the will of the father of Rebecca Humphries, that Thomas Willingham married Rebecca Humphries; Thomas and Rebecca Humphries Willingham are on the 1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census, just married, no children; Thomas is the son of 1753 Jesse.

Jesse Willingham m. 1 Jan 1828 Linda Floyd [a descendant says that this is Jesse b. 1790 and a second marriage; I don?t have the first marriage. The marriages of Jesse Willingham in 1803 in Oglethorpe Co., GA to Judith Goolsby would be too early for this Jesse b. 1790 as he would be only 13; I believe that this is Jesse b. 1753 because Jesse with wife, Judy, sold after 1803 land that by it?s description and neighbors belonged to Jesse b. 1753. [Land document]

On the 1830 Jackson Co., GA census there is Henderson Willingham. We now know from the will of his mother, Mary, the will of his sister, Harriett, and the estate records of his father, Samuel, that Henderson, Willis, Benjamin Vaughan, Eliza m. Hancock, and Harriett are the children of Samuel and Mary Willingham. When one knows the family, it appears that Henderson is given as the head of the household, but the male 40-50 (b. 1780-1790) is actually Samuel.

The following is my best guess for children of Jesse and Francis 'Fanny" Willingham based on census, marriages, knowing the families of other Willingham in GA in the early 1800s, and land and tax records. The order of birth is determined by the 1800-1820 census ; the number in the bracket is the approximate probable order of birth.
[1] Anne Willingham b. ca 1777 m. 1791 John William Hardman b. ca 1772 d. 1825. [From descendants]
[2] Thomas Willingham b. 1778 in Henry Co., VA d. > 1850 Randolph Co., AL m. 1800 to Rebecca Humphries. 1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census for Thomas Willingham. Humphries estate records.

Hi! On Moses Trimble. Moses' father was James Trimble or Turnbull and mother was Jane Kersey Trimble or Turnbull from Armagh Ireland. Moses and his 4 brothers: James, John David and Alexander came to America in 1730. The 4 oldest brothers were surveyors and Alexander became a minister. Moses settled in Washington Co. Virginia and had 4 children: James, Moses Jr., Thomas and Jane. I have more information but there is not room here. Hopefully this will help you.

In Reply to: Re: Moses Trimble born 1718 in Ireland by James Trimble of 1956


James, whoa! I'm also a descendant of Moses Trimble, "cousin"; I live in Arkansas about an hour and a half away from the land which they owned near Caldwell--which is just down the road south of Colt and about 8 miles north of Forrest City, all of which are located in St. Francis County. A friend and I drove up on the ridge there last summer to get a glimpse of the land they owned. Rhea County is in eastern Tennessee. Moses married Anna Styres there in 1809. Their original marriage license is in the Barnes Collection at the Univ. of Tenn. archival library in Knoxville. Melissa was the wife of Richard Trimble, Moses and Anna's oldest son. William--my ggg-grandfather--and John Trimble were Richard's younger brothers. I just looked at Arkansas' St. Francis County Agricultural Census for 1850 recently to see what Richard and his dad, Moses, grew on their respective farms. People didn't row crop back then like they do today. Of Moses' 150 acres, 110 were unimproved. His livestock consisted of 3 horses, 11 milch cows, 2 working oxen, 5 other cattle, 6 sheep and 15 swine; Grandpa Trimble's produce that year included 30 pounds of wool, 50 pounds of peas and beans, 20 pounds of sweet potatoes, 25 pounds of butter, 30 gallons of molasses and 20 pounds of beeswax and honey. Moses Trimble is first listed in St. Francis County, Ar. in a Sheriff's Census around 1828-29. At that time, Arkansas was still part of the Louisiana Territory; she became a state in 1836. Moses and Anna Trimble moved to Cass County, Tx. from St. Francis County, Ar. around 1851, as did their son Richard with his family, and their daughter, Eleanor Trimble Adair Boney, with her family. Rhea County, Tenn. was apparently "staked out" by settlers as soon as the Treaty of 1805 with the Cherokees was signed. According to the Roane Co. Land Entry Book for 1807-1808, some 20 individuals probably lived there, and 12 others may not have lived there but entered land claims there . . . . This list of 32 names does not include any Trimbles at all. However, John McClellan's Surveyor's Book (1808-1810) mentions Elizaeth Trammel and Richard Trimble. Moses Trimble served as a witness for the surveys of Henry Styres and Roger Gideon in Rhea Co. in 1808. David Trimble is listed on an 1808 Rhea Co. tax list, as is Richard Trimble. These are the only Trimbles I have been able to find listed in early Rhea County, Tn. documents, though Judge James Trimble served the circuit court there in 1820. Who was Jonas Trimble?

In Reply to: Re: John Styers and other familey by Wynell of 241


I believe that Henry Styers Jr. and John were brothers. Henry married Mary Alford in Madison County, Alabama, and they had several boys and girls before Henry died during the late 1830s. Most of their children moved south to Tuscaloosa County, Alabama with the Sutton and Skelton families. Henry Sr. is found in Greene County, Tennessee in the mid-1780s, and he is found as one of the signers of the creation of the State of Franklin. A few years later, he and his family move to Rhea County, Tennessee. By 1810 Henry and some of his children move to Madison county, Alabama. A sale of property by his neighbor shows that Henry Sr. bought a few items. He had likely lived in North Carolina earlier and might have been born in the region that connects Penn. and New Jersey. I come from Susan Styers, daughter of Henry Jr. and Mary, who married George Sutton in Jackson County, Alabama. They moved to Tuscaloosa County, then Pickens County, Alabama and finally Webster County, Mississippi.

Subject: HENRY STYRES, PA-TN 1780's

Hi,
For several years along with other descendants i've been searching
for information about my ggggg-grandfather, Henry Styres/Styers/Stears
. . . In 1808 he filed an occupant claim for land in the newly
opened-up Cherokee lands in Rhea Co., Tn. His land adjoined that of
another claimant, Richard Trimble. Moses Trimble, born around 1786 in
Virginia, was listed as a chain-bearer on one or two of the surveys
for these claims. He married Anna Styres or Styers in 1809 in Rhea
County, Tn., and we assume their parents to be Henry Styers and
Richard Trimble. An Elizabeth Styres married Abraham Atchley in Rhea
Co. in 1808--Anna's sister?

Unfortunately, both the Trimble and Styers' claims turned out to
be on land that was part of a prior N.C. grant, and the families had
to move on, apparently to Alabama (Henry was listed in Madison Co's
census), where Moses and Anna had several children, according to the
census (their first child, richard, was born in rhea county), then
the Trimbles moved on to st. francis co, arkansas by 1828. In the
early 1830's, tax records show that John Styers also moved his family
to St. Francis Co., Ar. from Alabama. According to the census, he was
born in Tenn. around 1798. I believe he must have been Anna's
brother, and also believe that Anna and John may have had another
brother named Henry who died in Jackson Co., Alabama in 1839. His
children (Pleasant, Susannah, Mary, David, John . . . .) were listed
in a probate record along with his wife, Mary)

I have discovered two other eastern Tn. records that i think
may refer to Anna's father, Henry: in 1796, Henry Stears was listed
as a purchaser at Alexander Ward's estate sale in Jefferson County,
Tn. Then, according to the Jefferson Co. Minute Book, in May 1797
Henry Styres was appointed overseer of the road from Moon's
Schoolhouse to the mouth of Nolichucky.

This part of Tennessee was once part of North Carolina, and
according to a Moon family researcher, there were eight men who were
listed in the tax records of Northumberland County, Pennsylvania
during part of the 1770-1780's who wound up in Jefferson (originally
Greene Co., NC) County, Tn.--and Henry Styres was one of these. He
was listed in the Northumberland Co., Pa. records from 1778-1781.
Moses and Anna Trimble, along with John Styers and his sons still at
home, Andrew J. Styers and John Styers, all moved to Texas in the
early 1850's--the Trimbles to Cass Co., and the Styers to Wood County,
Tx. Records in St. Francis Co. were destroyed on at least three
occasions, and began over in 1862, so that they contain almost nothing
of these families. Does anybody recognize any connections here?
Could Henry Styres have been Pennsylvania Dutch? Or German? Or Swiss
German? Can anyone place him in a (Pennsylvania?) family? "John" and
"Henry" appear to be names carried down in this family, as well as
Sarah. crhorton

Thomas Willingham and land of Thomas Clayton
1 Nov 1774, St. Pauls Parish, GA, Thomas Clayton land grant 200 acres on Sullivans Cr., adj. Tinley, Sullivan, Clark, and Robertson; 120 acres of this tract were sold by Thomas Willingham (to James Wright in 1789.
Thomas Willingham sold land that had been granted to Thomas Clayton 24 Aug1785 (registered in book HHH p. 372 on 27 Aug 1785). I have a copy of the sale by Thomas Willingham of this land to James Wright.

Thomas [his mark] Willingham [Legal Seal]
The mark of Thomas is shown to be like a small script t, looks like a script capital U, but with a downward swing from top of right arm. This mark is reminiscent of the marks of Thomas Willingham, son of John with1751 will in Lunenburg Co., VA.
NOTE: The Moore and Kennedy names seem to be associated with Willingham in Columbia Co.

Subject: William Walker of 1798 Greene Co., GA
I read some of your posts to the Walker family Forum and see that you have information on some William Walker of Greene Co., GA. Do you know anything about the people mentioned above? You mentioned Rev. William Walker m. Jane Bayes of Greene Co., GA; where was this William Walker before he came to GA? When did he come to GA? Have you any indication that William Walker might have been in that part of Oglethorpe Co., GA that went into Greene Co. in 1786?

I see that you also mention a "Rich Billy" Willaim Walker b. 5 Sept 1765, son of George Walker m. 1756 Mary Duchart and settled "on Brier Creek in Richmond Co., GA"....Do I understand you correctly that Sauders Walker is also a son of this George Walker?

We know that Saunders Walker is mentioned in EDWARDS? MATERIALS- A HISTORY OF THE BAPTIST VOL 2 Heritage Papers, Danielsville, GA 30633, 1984
as being
At BRIARS CREEK, GA, preachers: Solomon Thompson, Joseph Rees, Dan

jlittlef@sowega.net (Jim Littlefield, Jr.) message returned
I have read some of your posts concerning William Dawkins b. ca 1730 VA; do you know whether he was in Greene Co., GA in 1798? It appears that since his daughter, Dorothy, was born 1784 in Newberry Dist., SC, that William was surely there in SC at that time. Do you know where William was between Prince William Co., VA and Newberry Dist., SC? I did also see the post by Sarah where she gave William's wife to be Jane (Jean) Calvert, alias Harrison.

Do see any names in the above document that you have further information on? Do you know whether the above named people lived in that part of Oglethorpe Co., GA that became part of Greene Co., GA in 1786? Thanks for any little piece of information.

Thomas Willingham sold to Mattett 1799
Book I p. 382-384 Thomas Willingham of Columbia Co., GA to James Mattett of Columbia Co., GA on 5 Jan 1799 Recorded 22 Apr 1800,100 acres on the waters of Cagg Creek Bordered SW by vacant and John Weldon, SE by old lines, NW by vacant land, NE by vacant and John Lander's land Wit. James Ramsey, Isaac Willingham, John Moon Thomas Willingham (Legal Seal) No signature mark. Witness swore before Absalom Farrar, JP on 11 May 1799. Is this the same Thomas Willingham who had the 100 a HR on Little River 14 May 1787?
NOTE: I believe that this is the son, Thomas, of William Willingham 1798 will. In this will, William said that he had already given to his sons, Thomas and Elijah who, by the wording were 21 or older. William?s land was on Kegg creek.

Thomas Willingham m. 20 July 1791 in Columbia Co., GA to Olly Johnson
I feel pretty certain that Thomas "T" Willingham the spouse of Olley Johnston died ca 1797 and the administrators were appointed in Greene County. I thought I sent you a copy of the Johnston deed showing Thomas' mark "T". I don't think that I have the Holly Willingham estate documents and would welcome a transcription. Roger
A Thomas Willingham married 20 July 1791 in Columbia Co., GA to Alley Johnson, believed by her descendants to be Alley McCarty Johnston, the widow of Samuel Johnston. Alley / Olley and Thomas Willingham sold land with Olley's children in 1791 in GA and this Thomas Willingham signed the deed with his signature mark of a capital "T" according to Roger Willingham.

Re: Olley McCarty Johnson Willingham Wed, 21 Feb 2001 12:31:42 From: "kevin stiles"
Hi Katherine, Samuel and Olley came from Lincoln Co, NC prior to their arrival in GA. Olley's father Daniel McCarty will was written nearby. Samuel JOHNSTON died in 1788 in Richmond Co, and the family seems to have arrived only a few years prior, since there are no other deeds. Kevin

Thomas Willingham m. 1815 Elizabeth Moore
From Roger O. Willingham: Upson Co.: Elizabeth B. [Moore] Willingham application for pension being the widow of Thomas Willingham who was a substitute for William Willingham during the War of 1812. Mustered in from Jasper Co. in 1813. They were married in Baldwin Co. in 1815. [Thomas Willingham m. 1815 in Baldwin Co., GA to Elizabeth Moore, according to this application.] Charles and James Willingham are on the 1820 Baldwin Co., GA census; James remains in Upson Co., GA; James and Elizabeth are on the 1840 Upson Co. census, this would imply that Thomas died before 1840, but after ca 1836 as he had a child born 1836. This group of men appear to be the sons of Thomas and Judith Finch Willingham. This is probably Elizabeth, age 67, on the 1860 Upson Co., GA census, b. ca 1793. Elizabeth is on the 1850 Upson Co., GA census as follows:
Elizabeth Willingham 58f 400 NCar [Elizabeth Moore m. 1815 Baldwin Co., GA Thomas Willingham.]
Judah F. 32f Ga [b. 1818] [On 1860 Upson Co. census with mother. Is she named for Judith Finch?]
Sarah 31f Ga [b. 1819] [On 1860 Upson Co. census with mother.]
Mary A. 18f Ga [b. 1832]
Henry M. 14m Ga [b. 1836] This birth implies that Thomas Willingham died about 1836, probably in Upson Co., GA since Elizabeth is on the 1840 Upson Co. census.The 1840 Upson Co., GA census is needed for Elizabeth Willingham. This may be the Thomas Willingham of 1830 Campbell Co., GA census.

Thomas, father of Mary ?Molly? Willingham of 1807 GA, Mary was in GA by 1804.

Thomas Willingham on 1820 GA census
Thomas Willingham, Columbia Co., 28 Capt. Thos. Willingham Dist. #4 males 1 16-26 [Thomas b. 1794-1804, probably about 21 since has no children and b. ca 1799, probably Thomas who paid poll in 180;5 females 1 16-26 [Ann Jones? Think so.]
Thomas Willingham m. <15 Apr 1822 Ann Jones [From will of father, John Jones, of Ann. The sister, Sarah, of Ann married Isaac Willingham, son of John d. 1818 and Ann.] This may be Thomas Willingham who gave his three daughters to Richard and Rebecca Shipp in Walton Co., GA 1828; Nancy about 8, Elizabeth about 6, and Rebeca about 1 year 5 months; the ages of these children are in agreement with there being no children in the household in 1820.
The people associated with this Thomas Willingham implies that Thomas was part of the John Willingham d. 1818 Columbia Co., GA m. Ann family.

Thomas Willingham who married 1800 Rebecca Humphries could have about 9 or 10 children in 1820. The lack of an older male listed here may be due to his being gone from home due to the War 1812.

T. Willingham p. 204; 1 m 26-45, 3 f < 10, 1 f 26-45 [Believe m. 1815 Elizabeth Moore and is son of Thomas and Judith Finch. See 1830 Campbell Co., GA census.Thomas Willingham who married 1815 Elizabeth Moore could have about three children in 1820; Elizabeth would be 28 in 1820. Thomas, son of Thomas and Judith Finch, was probably about 19 in 1807 and about 12 in 1800 and one of the males 10-16 (b. 1788) listed with Judith Willingham in 1800 Oglethorpe Co. census; he would be about 22 in 1810, 32 in 1820, 42 in 1830.

Thomas Willingham, 1820 Morgan Co. Capt. Harpers Dist. [Believe that this is son of William, 1797 will. SinceThomas was at least 21 by Oct 1797, then he was born by 1797-21=1776 and Elijah by ca 1774----they both had their $60 when their father wrote his will. Thomas was > 44 in 1820.]

(Walton Co. 1828; Thomas Willingham gave his three daughters to Richard and Rebecca Shipp; Nancy about 8, Elizabeth about 6, and Rebeca about 1 year 5 months. I don?t believe that this Thomas is the one above in 1820 Morgan Co. Could this Thomas be the one who married the daughter of John Jones?)
