1101 Ezekial Parrish living next door to William Oliver, father of Mary Oliver Pegram Middleton.
Ezekiel Parrish (son) to John and Mary Parrish (parents)
The 1870 Census, from Bruce Country, NC; page 24) has Ezekiel Parrish (age 40, married to Elizabeth ?Betty?, age 30) and lists a son Walter (age 9). This is Walter Sanders Parrish, father of William Lindsey Parrish.

There is a Lindsay Parrish (age 48, married to Sally, age 51) that is listed directly under Ezekiel?s family. The name Lindsay matches the middle name of the son of Walter Sanders Parrish who is the son of Ezekiel Parrish, so this is probably where William Lindsay Parrish got his middle name from (it is possible that Lindsay was Ezekiel?s older brother).

There is a Benjamin Parrish (age 22, married to Amy, age 22) on the same record. The 1850 Census lists Benjamin in John Parrish?s family at age 5.

There is also a John Parrish (age 67, married to Mary, age 48, on the same 1870 Census record as Ezekiel and Lindsay?s families are listed. John and Mary have in their care another Walter Parrish, age 10 (more than likely the two Walter?s are first cousins).

The 1850 Census, from Guilford County; page 154), lists John Parrish (age 47, married to Mary, age 28). Ezekiel is shown in the family (age 19) as well as Benjamin (age 5) ? 14 years apart, which corresponds to the age difference between Ezekiel and Benjamin listed in the 1870 Census of that county.

On the same record, Lindsay and Sally Parrish are also listed. The ages aren?t completely legible, but it is clear that they were in their 20?s.
It is with this evidence, that it is sound to believe that John and Mary Parrish were the parents of Ezekiel and Benjamin amongst other children (possibly Lindsay as well).

In Reply to: Re: Margaret Pearson M: Thomas Wheeler 1843 by Charlene of 5829


The father of Margaret Pearson was William Pearson (d. 30 Apr 1863, aged 70 y., bur. Lowe's) of Rockingham Co. He died intestate, but a sale list in his file at the NC State Archives shows "Two Shairs of crop going to the Heirs in the west A Dilworth & T. L. Wheeler Heirs of Wm. Pearson Decd." William's estate was administered by Martin Clemmons, who must have been the "Martin Clemmon" who married Martha C. Pearson in 1852. William's widow was Nancy Navey, whom he married ca. 20 May 1828. I don't know name of his previous wife (mother of Delila Pearson Dilworth and Margaret Pearson Wheeler).

William's father was Sullivan Pearson, who died in Rockingham Co. (will dated 20 Jan 1797). There's a tradition in one branch of the family that Sullivan's father was Nehemiah Pearson (d. 1780), that Nehemiah had a brother named Salisbury and another son named Jeremiah, and that Nehemiah and Salisbury came from Scotland through MD to Onslow Co., NC. I would be very interested in info about the folks in this tradition.

John Aurelius Lambeth is the son of Lovick, Grandson of Josiah Lambeth and great grandson of Samuel Lambeth .

John Aurelius was :born June 20, 1824 in Guilford County, North Carolina.
John :died June 29, 1884 in North Carolina.

John Married Delitha Moore Pearson on December 20, 1844 she is the daughter of Jeremiah Pearson and the grand daughter of Sullivan Pearson.
Delitha was born: July 19, 1819 She Died: November 21, 1889 in Guilford county, North Carolina.

Thomas Moore of Dorchester County, Maryland left a will that was recorded 8 April, 1774. The will mentions his wife, Rachel and son Thomas Moore as heirs. It has not been proven that the Thomas Moore that moved to Rockingham County is his son, but all documents found (so far) indicate this is so.

2) Mary, probably the d/o Sullivan Pearson

Pendleton District of South Carolina

By mike shuman June 24, 2013 at 06:05:58


What I know about the Montgomery name that lived in
Pendleton district South Carolina.

The first by this name to have lived here was named
James Montgomery. I don't know who he was, because it has
been a toss up between two by this name in South Carolina.
One died in Laurens County, South Carolina about 1792.
One died in Jackson County, Georgia about 1808.

The next Montgomery to have lived here was named Jonathan
Montgomery. He came to South Carolina from Orange County,
North Carolina in about 1786. In about 1825 he removed to
Carroll County, Tennessee where he applied for his Rev War
Pension in 1832. This Jonathan Montgomery died in Carroll
County about 1852. He was on the U.S. Federal census of
1790 and he had children in his home.

The next Montgomery to have lived in Pendleton District was
named William Montgomery. He is found there on the first
U.S. Federal census in 1790. He came from Burke County,
North Carolina. In 1790 he had children in his home.

The next Montgomery to have lived in Pendleton District was
named Hamilton Montgomery. He is first found on the "first
Petit Jurors" list for Pendleton District for the year of
1790.

After Hamilton Montgomery, there was another James
Montgomery along with a Robert Montgomery.

What is now known, is that Robert, Hamilton, James and
William Montgomery were from Burke County, North Carolina
This James was married to Sarah Varner/Verner.

This Robert Montgomery went to Amite county, Missisippi.
This Hamilton Montgomery went to Phillips County, Arkansas.
This William Montgomery went to Knox county, Tennessee.
This James Montgomery is questionable as to where he ended
his days?

IN about 1818-1819, another William Montgomery came into
Pendleton County. He is found there by 1820 and was living
near Jonathan Montgomery. This William Montgomery had a son
named Jonathan Montgomery that was born about 1795 in North
Carolina. By 1830 both William and Jonathan were living in
Carroll County, Tennessee. Both William and Jonathan filed
for their Rev War Pensions there in 1832. They reported at
that time that they were brothers and that they had been
born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It was Jonathan
Montgomery, son of this William Montgomery that is found
in Tippah county, Mississippi by 1840. On this same 1840
U.S. Census report in which Jonathan Montgomery is found
in Tippah County, we find his age group as being that of
being born about 1795, BUT, we also find another older
male figure in this household whom claims he was aged
70-80 years. This older male, if I go by his age would
suggest that he would be William Montgomery: brother of
Jonathan: and father of Jonathan.

Those Montgomerys from Burke County, North Carolina were
were sons of John Montgomery. This John Montgomery is
considered to have come from Amherst County, Virginia.
I have yet to find a land record for him in Amherst County.
This John Montgomery buried two sons in Burke County.
One was named Michael Montgomery and the other was named
John Montgomery Jr. In 1782, John Montgomery Jr., had died
in Burke County. Hamilton Montgomery and Margaret Montgomery
held BOND on this Estate, while John Montgomery Sr., was
Administrator. IN about 1835, Amite County, Mississippi
Robert Montgomery died. He was not married nor did he have
any children. His LW&T left every thing to his Heirs.
His brothers were located as well as his sisters. If no
surviving siblings, then the property was divided amongst
their children.

Those Montgomerys from Orange County, North Carolina were
from William Montgomery Sr.,whom left his LW&T in Orange co
dated 1815. His children were William Jr., Jonathan, John,
James, David, Hugh, Alexander and Nancy.

Dispersement of known children:
William Jr. went to S.C./Tennessee/Mississippi.
Jonathan went to S.C./Tennessee.
David, I think went to Tennessee?
Hugh stayed in Orange County.
James ?
John ?
Alexander?

I do not know the names of all the children of William Jr
whom came from Orange County, North Carolina?
IN 1838, there was a tax list for Tippah County in which
Jonathan Montgomery was found. Next door to this Jonathan
Montgomery is found a James Montgomery. I don't know where
this James went to?

1107 SATTERWHITE NOTES

David Satterwhite (John Michael , Thomas , Michael , Thomas ) was born about 1757 in Granville, Nc. He died in May 1831 in Harris, Ga.

In 1791, David Satterwhite was granted 200
acres of land in Richmond Co., GA, but did not take immediate possession
of this land and if he ever occupied this land it was not for any great
length of time. Sometime before 1785 he moved to Granger Co., TN. He
and John Willingham are recorded as being a member of the Richlands
Primitive Baptist Church in Granger Co., TN, in 1791-1795. On 4-7-1798,
David obtained a Tennessee passport to "Indian lands for the purpose of
taking grain now growing and to remove stock and other property from the
Indian lands." David also owned land in Blount Co., TN in 1801, according
to the Blount Co., Tax Digest. In 1803, David purchased land from a
William Reid in Columbia Co., GA, and in 1805 David served in the
Columbia Co., Militia. He is recorded in the 1806 Columbia Co., Tax
list. Milly and William Satterwhite are also on this tax list. He
participated in the 1807 Georgia Land Lottery and drew land in Baldwin
Co., in the amount of 202 acres. In 1808 he served as the power of
attorney for a certain Millinor Hammock in Jones Co., GA. He sold her
land to Stephen Satterwhite. On 12-6-1810 David sold land to John
Childs. This appears to be the same land that was sold to Stephen
Satterwhite. David appears on the Jones Co., Ga., tax list for the year
1811 and he appears in the 1820 census of Jones Co., Ga. In 1824, the
LWT of Adam Manning, on file in Putnam Co., GA., states "that James
Satterwhite, my son-in-law, and David Satterwhite, his father, choose out
of my personal estate of any description or kind....for the support of my
wife." David appears in the 1830 census of Harris Co., Ga. Also in
1830, he is recorded as selling 101 acres of land in Jones Co., to a
Jesse Pitts. Further, in 1830 he was a "moderator" of the Falls Shoals
Church. In 1831, David's name appears on the "Ferry book," indicating
that he used the ferry to cross the Chattahoochie River between West
Point and Lanett. The following is the LWT of Daivd Satterwhite dated
5-1-1831, Harris Co., GA.

Family Notes:

Phoebe McGraw was the daughter of Ralph Jones and Mary, his wife of Fairfield Dist., SC. Ralph Jones died in 1817 naming his daughter, "Phoebe McGraw of Mississippi" in his last will and testament. Nathan McGraw is most likely the son of David McGraw, Sr. of Fairfield Dist.,SC and Montgomery Co., Tn. who died ca. 1823 in Pike Co., Ms. David McGraw, Sr was security on the executorship of the estate of John Willingham of Camden Dist., SC the spouse of Phoebe's sister, Mary Jones Willingham with other security Ralph Jones. It is likely by my research there is a Gibson-McGraw relationship early in the Kershaw-Camden-Fairfield Dist., SC area.

Nathan and Phoebe Jones McGraw had children Catherine md. Jacob Gibson; Sarah md. John Hamilton; Mary McGraw and Isaac McGraw named in bible record above.
Sarah and John Hamilton lived in Holmes Co., Ms. where they both left wills, which copies I have in my possession..
Catherine McGraw md. Jacob Gibson in Amite Co., Ms. 18 Jan. 1819 and they were parent s of Jesse F.(Fort?) Gibson, Ralph Jones Gibson, Mary Gibson md. Benjamin Johnson and Jacob Gibson md. Margaret Hamilton. Jacob Gibson who md. Catherine Mc Graw was a son of Jacob Gibson and Mary Fort and Mary Fort d/o Jesse Fort. and grandson of Rev Jacob Gibson married Judith Napier, d/o Robert Napier.Rev. Jacob Gibson md. second Sarah Burns, widow of Patrick Burns. His will is in Fairfield Dist., SC.as is the will of Ralph Jones who migrated to SC through Charleston from Wales and bought land in Kersaw district, SC in the 1750's.

After the death of Jacob Gibson, Catherine McGraw Gibson md. second Jesse Thomas. The names of this family suggest a familiarity with the Gibson family.

Family Notes:

Phoebe McGraw was the daughter of Ralph Jones and Mary, his wife of Fairfield Dist., SC. Ralph Jones died in 1817 naming his daughter, "Phoebe McGraw of Mississippi" in his last will and testament. Nathan McGraw is most likely the son of David McGraw, Sr. of Fairfield Dist.,SC and Montgomery Co., Tn. who died ca. 1823 in Pike Co., Ms. David McGraw, Sr was security on the executorship of the estate of John Willingham of Camden Dist., SC the spouse of Phoebe's sister, Mary Jones Willingham with other security Ralph Jones. It is likely by my research there is a Gibson-McGraw relationship early in the Kershaw-Camden-Fairfield Dist., SC area.

Nathan and Phoebe Jones McGraw had children Catherine md. Jacob Gibson; Sarah md. John Hamilton; Mary McGraw and Isaac McGraw named in bible record above.
Sarah and John Hamilton lived in Holmes Co., Ms. where they both left wills, which copies I have in my possession..

His will is in Fairfield Dist., SC.as is the will of Ralph Jones who migrated to SC through Charleston from Wales and bought land in Kersaw district, SC in the 1750's.

1109 "The ancestor of the Thomas Henry Willingham Family in South Carolina was Joseph Willingham who died in 1789. Thus far his parentage has not been established, although he was probably the son of Isaac, William, or Thomas Winningham, each of whom had land grants in 1738 on the Santee River. The name is "Winningham" in many early S.C. records, and sometimes "Winningham" and "Willingham" are used in the same record."
"Joseph Willingham's will shows he was from "Myrtle Hill" on the Santee River. His property was advertised for sale (the proceeds to be divided among his heirs) in the S.C. City Gazette or Daily Advertiser, March 27, 1789. He had six adjacent plantations in St. James and St. Stephen's Parishes on the Santee River, one having a ferry opposite Lenud's Ferry. He was twice married."

Second Generation
James Carlile, son of the immigrant, was only six years old when his family came to America. He was born May 23, 1763 in Tarnaneal, County Monaghan, Ireland. At age 17, he was drafted into the South Carolina militia as a private, reporting to Grindal Shoals Dec 25, 1780. He was placed under his brother, Lt. Francis Carlile, Capt. James Caldwell, Col. Andrew Pickins, and Gen. Morgan. Three weeks later James fought in what has been called the greatest tactical victory ever won on American soil, the Battle of Cowpens in upper South Carolina. The fighting began Jan 17, 1781 near Spartanburg. James was assigned to guard prisoners as they headed toward the mountains. After releasing the prisoners to the Virginians, he returned with Col. Pickens to harry the Tories and cut off British supplies. James also was in the siege of Ninety Six.

The patriotic young Carliles probably found themselves in the minority at the onset of the war. While many South Carolina upcountry citizens expressed little interest in the causes for the conflict, others actively opposed it, and Long Cane experienced bitter rivalries among neighbors and even families. Violence erupted and South Carolina endured an internal civil war.


Military Service in American Revolution

The role of Ulster Presbyterians like Francis and James in the American Revolution, with their blend of evangelism and ferocious self-reliance, far outweighed their numbers. As one British officer put it, "call this war by whatever name you may, but call it not an American rebellion; it is nothing more or less than an Scotch-Irish Presbyterian rebellion."

Our uncle, Captain Francis Carlile, served in several other notable battles including the Battle of Kettle Creek near Washington, GA where he suffered a thigh wound. It was at Kettle Creek, Feb 14, 1779, that Col. John Dooly, Col. Elijah Clark, and Col. Andrew Pickens defeated overwhelmingly a superior number of Tory forces. The Patriot victory helped to prevent total British control of Georgia for at least another year, and was the only significant check of a British invasion of the colony. The battle was the only major Patriot victory in Georgia during the Revolution War, and one of the most important battles fought in the state prior to the Civil War.

James was eventually sent to guard the frontier, and spent the rest of war as a prison and border guard. After the war, James returned to Abbeville District SC where he married Margaret Boles on Oct 15, 1783. Margaret Boles was born Jun 27, 1762, in South Carolina, the daughter of John Boles and Anne Ramsey. John Boles and Anne Ramsey married in Abbeville, SC about 1760. John also fought in the Battle of Kettle Creek where Uncle Francis was wounded. John Boles died about 1795 and Anne about 1801, both in South Carolina.

A House of Hewn Logs

Around 1790 James built a house of hewn logs just northwest of Lowndesville, SC on land granted to him for his service during the Revolutionary War. The property remains in the family to this day. James and Margaret raised their family, farmed, and lived there for the rest of their lives. The house has been added onto

over the years, but the original log house still stands, and the graves of James and Margaret in the field approximately 200 yards behind it have only recently been marked. About 60 people are buried there in the Carlile Family Cemetery including James and Margaret's eldest son, John, and his wife, Frances Tucker. A descendant of John and Frances currently owns the property where the old home and cemetery are located.

John's wife, Frances Tucker, was the granddaughter of "Old Dan Tucker," the mean old man immortalized in song. Interestingly enough, a connection to Old Dan Tucker is also mentioned on our Pittard side.

James Carlile died on Apr 9, 1842, and Margaret passed away Aug 13, 1857. On Mar 18, 1857, shortly before her death at age 95, Margaret applied for land from the federal government based on James' military service. In the application, Margaret included information taken from the family bible. Published dates about the family come from the application which was discovered during the 1960s at the National Archives in Washington DC.

The following obituary for Margaret appeared in the Oct 9, 1857 issue of the Due West Telescope, the newspaper published with the blessing of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church of South Carolina. Research shows that the Rev. Irwin mentioned in the obit became pastor in 1800 and died in 1823. This indicates that Margaret affiliated with the church sometime during that period.

Margaret Carlile Obituary

Died, at her residence, in the upper part of Abbeville District, S.C., about the 13th of August last, Mrs. Margaret Carlile. The deceased was about Ninety-five years of age, and had been a zealous and confident member of the Associate Reformed Church at Little Generostee, under the successive pastorates of Revs. Robert Irwin, Ebenezer E. Pressley, D.D., and James C. Chalmers. Her zeal for the glory of God, in attending the public ordinances of this house, was not perceived to experience any diminuities until utterly incapacited by the infirmaties of old age. How forceably does her case illustrate the Scripture truth: "Thou shall come to thy grave in a full age, like a shock of corn cometh in this season." Job v:26.


Children of James Carlile and Margaret Boles:

1. John Carlile b. May 18, 1784 in SC, m. Frances Tucker, d. 1846 in S C.

Revolutionary war, & where do you now live?

S/ John Trimbel
[Michael Dickson, a clergyman, Thomas Harris, Robert Lemon and James Anderson gave the
standard supporting affidavit.]
Georgia DeKalb County
Before me James W. Reeves an acting Justice of the peace in and for said County of preheard
John Trimble who after being sworn in due form of law, saith that he has 2 reasons for not
having made an earlier application for a Pension as a Revolutionary Soldier, to wit:
1st because he soon after the passage of the act of 1832 he employed and attorney to make
out a declaration to obtain a Pension as a Soldier of the Revolution but owing to his old age and
infirm disposition, he never was able to attend before the Court of said County, at a time when he
could get the necessary witnesses and papers before said Court, and further that this deponent
made application to the Comptroller General's office of South Carolina, for the documentary
evidence which was forwarded to the War Department with the Declaration of this deponent
which caused additional delay.
2nd Because at the time of the passage of the act of 1832 for the benefit of Revolutionary
Soldiers this deponent was then old and feeble, and had some property which this deponent
believed would be sufficient to support him his few remaining days, but through the goodness of
Almighty God, he has lingered for beyond his most same when hopes and expectations,
consequently has become entirely unable to perform any [several lines rendered illegible by ink
blots] declaration of his property, and not knowing how long he may yet survive, he feels that he
may yet want and that it is therefore his duty to apply for that Pension, which is the reward of his
Country for his youthful labor, to support him in his old and helpless days;
Sworn to and subscribed before me at the house of the said John Trimble he being unable
to leave home in person this 5th day of October 1836.

Message Board Post:

I am descended from Thomas Striplin whose will was probated in
Kershaw Co., SC in 1804. His 4 sons--John, Moses, Robert and
Benjamin--all settled in Jones Co., GA and took the spelling
"Stripling."

>From this site, I have seen references to the William Stribling

>contains the death date of Elizabeth Barber Stripling, wife of my

>the Thomas and Elizabeth Taliaferro Stribling line of northern VA.
>These siblings (along with Jesse and Samuel) are said to be sons of

I have researched the Striplings for years, but had stopped at
Thomas, for I had found no link from him back to the VA family (or
families). If this bible record says what it purports to say, then
this is the linchpin for me.

So, my questions are:

Does ANYONE have a transcript of the William Stribling bible record?

Can ANYONE advise me on how to find it in the National Archves
records, outside of going to D.C.?

Does anyone have ANYTHING on Robert Stribling, the prospective son of
Thomas and Elizabeth Taliaferro Stribling that would locate him in NC
or SC?

The children and grandchildren of Thomas Stripling and Elizabeth
Barber Stripling are listed below. I have much more info. on family
if anyone is interested.

Thanks!

1. Thomas1 Stripling was born circa 1745. He married Elizabeth
Barber. He died in 1804 at Kershaw County, SC.

On September 4, 1783, he purchased 100 acres near the south side of
the Wolf Pit Swamp near the mouth of Miry Branch in Franklin County,
NC. On February 19, 1988 he sold this land and relocated to Camden
District, SC. By the late 1790s, he was living in Kershaw County,
SC, where his will was probated in 1804, as follows:

"In the name of God amen. I thomas Striplin of Kershaw district bean

In Reply to: Timble Family History by Marc Trimbleof 848
Trimble is the name adopted by three brothers who left Scotland and moves to Ireland in the 1600's the original name is Turnbull. A William Rule was hunting with King Bruce in the 1500 and saved the kings live by killing a bull that wasd charging them. He was knighted sir Turnbull and rewarded with land in the county borders in Scotland. More information can be found in the book Trimble's family history by Farley

I understand that the tracing of a name back to its origin can get hairy at times and more often than not misjudged and perhaps outright lost on the way, my grandfather...Sanky Trimble from Albequerque went overseas to find it.
he found it to be a derivative of the French last name Trimblay carried over to Canada by Piere Trimble. i have all the docs and even a book he put together. Sanky was the VP of the Associated Press in the Southwest portion of the US, an avid writer and master gardener.
Funny thing is all those years growing up he thought the family was of Irish origin and was somewhat amusingly disappointed to found out it was French.
Five brothers, James, Moses, David, John and Alexander Trimble came to America from Armagh, Ireland, somtime between 1740 and 1744. James and John settled in Augusta County. Page 178, "Annals of Augusta County, Virginia". Children were: John TRIMBLE, Moses TRIMBLE, David TRIMBLE, James TRIMBLE, Walter TRIMBLE

Notes for Mary Christian:
When Mary's first husband went to North Carolina to enter land and was
never seen again, it was eventually presumed that he was killed by Indians
(Native Americans) and after 1745 she was free to marry again.
With her second husband she had a son, James Trimble. When James was
eight years old, a band of Indians came along and killed Mary's husband
John, loaded three of John's horses with his possessions, burned the house,
and took James and his half-sister Katherine with them.
George Moffett, Mary's oldest son by her first marriage, and Mary's
brother William plus twenty-three more men went in pursuit. When they
found them, they waited until darkness and surrounded the camp while the
Indians were eating, then attacked. Some Indians were killed, and many
ran away frightened, leaving their guns. The men were able to recover all of
the goods and the children, who were unharmed.

For addiional information on Bill's personal notes, you can contact him @ wdlindsy@swbell.net





General Notes: On 4 Nov. 1766, a warrant was issued for a survey of 300 acres for John Green in Granville Co., SC, with the survey on 17 Nov. 1766 by John Pickens (SC Plat Bk. 10, 74). The precept for the survey is in the SC Council Journal of the same date. On the same day, Frederick Ashmore petitioned for land on Long Cane, as did John Tinner.

On 2 Dec. 1766, a warrant was issued for a survey of 350 acres for a John Green in Granville Co., SC; the survey was on 10 Feb. 1767 (SC Plats 9,1). This is the grant of 20 Aug. 1767, below.

On 20 Aug. 1767, John Green received a grant for 350 acres in Granville Co., SC, on King's Creek of the Savannah, bounded west by the river, southwest by the creek, and southeast by John Brocass (SC Royal Grants 14, 553). Note that this grant may well be for a different John Green than the one living on Long Cane in Abbeville Co.

The memorial for this grant is 12 Sept., noting that the land had been surveyed 10 Feb. 1767. It is signed by Thos. Green [sic] (SC Memorials, 9, 310).

On 1 Oct. 1767, SC Memorials recorded a memorial for John Green for 300 acres in Granville on nw fork of Long Cane bordered on e by John and Walter Trimble, on ne by Saml. Kerr and Hugh Herron and ne by John Boles. Survey 7 July 1767, granted 28 Aug. Signed by John and Andrew Pickens (SC Memorials 9, 333). Note that this is where one of Ezekiel Calhoun's two tracts in Long Cane was located. Note that this places John Green beside the same Saml. Kerr whose daughter Jane married John Green, b. 1768. Note, too, that Moses Trimble received Benj. Green's pay indent.

According to Eugene Earl Trimble, Trimble Families: A Partial Listing of Some Descendants of Colonial Families (Kensington, MD, 1958), Walter Trimble had wife Rosannah, and moved in 1765 from Augusta Co., VA, to Granville Co., SC, to Long Cane (pp. 52-3). They sold their land in Augusta on 20 May 1765, and on 1 Dec. 1769, WT had a grant on nw fork of Long Cane bounded on nw by Saml. Kerr. This source says that Walter Trimble appears with Robert, John, and James in Orange Co., VA, records by 1733, and later in Augusta records (p. 45). They appear to descend from a Co. Armagh, Ireland, family (p. 1). Walter Trimble had dau. Margaret (b. 1740) who m. Michael Woods in 1767 in Abbev. Co., SC, and a son John who m. Michael's sister Susanna. This couple named a son Green (b. 13 Aug. 1783). Note that John and Jane Kerr Green's daughter Mary Calhoun Green m. Robert Woods. See also David B. Trimble, American Beginnings (San Antonio, 1974), pp. 151-2.]

According to Kemper, cited in file of John Noble (m. Mary Calhoun), on 14 Sept. 1740, James and Wm. Trimble and David Gamble were residents of "New Castle and Province of PA" when they gave bond on that date to Valentine Henderson of Belfast, Ireland (150).

Note that an Augusta Co., VA, case, April 1795, of Crawford vs. Greens is abt. an entry of 1000 acres on North Mtn. on road from Walter Trimble's to lines of John Trimble et al. The case file has entry of Timothy and Joseph Green for the land, with deposition of James Bell, Lexington, KY, 1794, says he sold land on Calf Pasture in Augusta to the Greens.

SC Memorials has a 20 Feb. 1769 memorial to John Green for 350 acres on the nw fork of Long Cane in Granville granted 5 Oct. 1763 to Alexander McCalpin and sold by him on 31 Jan. and 5 Feb. 1769 to John Green (SC Memorials 8, 340).

On 5 Dec. 1769 a warrant was issued for a survey of 100 acres for John Green in Granville Co., with survey on 22 Feb. 1770. The plat entry for this land has no plat included (SC Plats 11, 228). This is the land granted on 5 March 1770, below.

On 5 March 1770, John Green received a grant for 100 acres in Granville Co., SC. The only land description is that the land is in St. Luke's parish and bounded on all sides by vacant lands (SC Royal Grants 19, 257).

There is a 1 March 1774 memorial to a John Green in Granv., 100 acres on the Coosawhatchie in St. Helena parish bordered on sw by Thomas O'Brian, granted 17 Feb. 1773 to Thomas Mitchell of Charleston and sold to JG on 1-2 Nov. 1773 (SC Memorials 12, 470). The location of this land suggests to me that it belonged to a different John Green than the man living on Long Cane. A John Green was also a Revolutionary soldier in Abbev. (indent file 3068, SC Archives). The indent file contains a receipt to Lieut. Abraham Richardson signed by John Green on 9 June 1782 for payment for 10 months service in Capt. Thos. Harvey's troops of the State Light Dragoons under Col. Samuel Hammond, with Jno. Hammond wit. The receipt indicates that John Green was paid for both bounty and "wagers," and that the payment was a slave. This receipt is signed by mark. However, all other documents in the file are signed (and several written) by John Green. Though we have documents showing that the son of John the elder who was also named John was literate, the signature by mark apparently does not indicate that the older man could not write, nor does it allow us to distinguish between the two men, since in 1782, John the elder's son would have been only fourteen years old.

Other receipts in the file indicate that the indent was originally to S. Hammond, then assigned to James Neilson, who signed the indent to John Walters Gibby on 24 Nov. 1784.

Another receipt shows that John Green served 39 militia-duty days in 1781-2 and did gunsmith and farrier's work for the militia in 1781. On 25 July 1781, John Green was paid for shoeing horses by order of Gen. Andrew Pickens.

On 29 Sept. 1785, in Abbev. Co., John Green authorized Archibald Hamilton to receive his indent for services under Col. Robert Anderson, with John Harris wit.

On 2 May 1785, the SC treasury authorized John Green to receive 4 pounds 5 shillings 8 pence for his militia duty in 1781-2. Other receipts in the file show that John Green supplied a steer to troops in 1781, for which he was paid on 6 Sept. 1785. A 5 Jan. 1786 receipt shows that John Green also delivered 36 weight pork and supplies to Burton's Ferry in Jan. 1779, with 80 lbs. bacon. In March 1779, he delivered 2200 pounds pork to Capt. Richard. A note says that the receipt for the first delivery should have been signed by Capt. John Weakley or Col. Benj. Jordan, and for the second by George Beattie, Sr.

On 17 Sept. 1785, John Green gave the indents to William Robson to sell or trade for him in Charleston. This receipt, written and signed by John Green, is in a hand close to that of John the younger, but that man would have been only seventeen years old at the time. The note reads, "Sir, I understand by Capt. Smith that you are going to Charleston and thereby by the 20th Ins. I enclose you some Certificates which I must beg the favour of you to have the best done with them you Can and if any of them Should not pass pray take care of them and return them and for all Trouble I will make you full Satisfaction, I am, Dear Sir your most Obt. John Green, Sepr. the 12th 1785." The signature has flourishes underneath it. The document was received by Robson on 27 Sept.

A receipt dated 26 Jan. 1779 and signed by Bartlett Brown, sergeant, shows that John Green delivered 3 fat hogs to Burton's ferry for use of Capt. John Weakley's troops. The receipt for 809 weight bacon is signed by Capt. Weakley in Orangeburgh Dist., 23 March 1779, showing that the meat was sent to Burton's ferry. There is a receipt dated 3 May 1780 at "Salt Cetches" showing that George Petties sold 2200 weight of pork to John Green for use by Capt. Richard. A 23 Dec. 1785 note of John Green asks the SC Treasury to deliver the indents due to him or discount the purchase therefrom for 398 acres of land surveyed for John Green and 270 acres surveyed for Benjamin Green. See transcript of this indent file at USGENWEB archives for Abbev. Co. on the Internet.

John Green is on the 1784 tax list in Abbeville Co. Note that his son of the same name seems to have married 1788-90.

Abbev. Plat Bk. 1, p. 15, has a plat for a John Green dated 22 May 1784 (see also SC Plats 1Q, 178). The land is 300 acres on north of Savannah River just below the confluence of the Toogalow and Semmekaw (?) River, bounded on the south by James Tate and on other sides by vacant lands. Rec. 1 June 1784. Note that on the same day a survey was made for John Ewing Calhoun in Abbev. If Semmekaw is a previous name for Keowee, then Green's Island in the Savannah may be named for whoever owned this land--on this, see file of Jacob Braselton. Note: if JG's tombstone has his date of birth right, he'd be only 16 at the time. It is possible that this John is the son of John the Revolutionary soldier, since the son did buy land adjacent to John Ewing Green in Pendleton Dist.

On 7 June 1784, a John Green had a survey for 640 acres in Abbev. on the south fork of 12 Mile River; rec. 21 June (Abbev. Plat Bk. 1, 30; see SC Plats 5Q, 59).

On 21 Dec. 1784, a John Green had a survey for 300 acres in Abbev. bounded sw by Joseph McCloskie, nw by John Green and Alex. Wallace, ne by James Weams, and se by Eager and Wm. Eddie; rec. 21 Jan. 1785 (Abbev. Plat Bk. 1, p. 208; SC Plats 1Q, 394).

Note that Jos. McCleskey pat. 200 acres on Little Generostee on 26 July 1784; rec. 11 September 1784.

Abbev. Plat Bk. 2, p. 95, records an 8 Sept. 1785 survey for a John Green 74 acres on the Red Bank a branch of the Little Saluda in Edgefield Co.; rec. 11 Dec. On 28 Nov., John Green had 105 acres on Red Bank Creek in Edgefield surveyed; rec. 13 Dec. (see also SC Plats 11Q, 320).

On 23 May 1785, John Green, a blacksmith of Abbev. Co., deeded to Wm. Skelton 200 acres on the Big Generostee in Abbev. granted to John Green; this is in Pendleton DB A, 91-2. This appears to be the 200 acres that Skelton sold on 5 Dec. 1791 to Wm. Lesley, though this deed says that Skelton bought the land on 13 July 1789, and that John Green had received the grant on 23 May 1783 (ibid., 56-7).

John Green the younger is listed in many documents as a blacksmith, so it is possible that this record refers to John Green the younger, who m. Jane Kerr, and moved to Pendleton Dist., SC. However, note that the Revolutionary file of John the elder shows him doing smithy work, too, so the blacksmithing was apparently learned by the younger John from his father. Note, too, that the younger man would have been only seventeen at the time.

4 Mar. 1791 deed of Wm. Stevenson to Moses Hopper of Abbev. notes that the land, on Big Generostee in Pendleton, bordered land sold to John Green and Wm. and John Skelton (Pendleton DB A, 354-5). This could refer to land owned by the Rev. soldier and blacksmith--see 1785 deed of that man to Wm. Skelton.
 
 
1118 Woods

Michael Woods (1684-1762)
Katie-Prince Ward's article "Archibald Woods of Albemarle County" in Virginia Historical Magazine provides the following summary of Michael Woods, drawing upon other sources:

Four brothers, Michael, William, John and Andrew Woods. along with their widowed sister, Mrs. Elizabeth (Woods) Wallace[,] came with their families, from the North of Ireland about 1724. Michael Woods spent several years in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania before going to Virginia. His wife was Mary Campbell and she probably predeceased him by twenty years. Their Virginia plantation was Mountain Plains, which in later years, after it had passed out of the Woods family, was known as Blair Park; and was situated near the east end of Woods (now Jarmans) Gap at the southern end of the present Shenandoah National Park, just to the left hand side of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad going south, between the villages of Crozet and Greenwood, (in Albemarle County). Both were buried in the family burying ground at Mountain Plains, and Michael's tombstone was standing after the Civil War. A fragment found sometime later indicated the year of his birth as 1684. His will was written 24 November 1761, and proven 11 June 1762 in Albemarle County.

He was married to Mary Campbell. At the time, their plantation was in Goochland County, in an area that is now part of Albemarle County. They settled in this area in 1734. Their plantation was about 20 miles west of Charlottesville.

Archibald Woods (1706-1768)
Archibald Woods, a son of Michael Woods and Mary Campbell, was born on May 11, 1706, according to his son Michael's day book. He was born in Ireland. See Katie-Prince Ward's article "Archibald Woods of Albemarle County" in Virginia Historical Magazine, which draws upon earlier sources while also correcting some errors.

He married Isabella Goss, who was born January 8, 1716/17 and died on November 2, 1766.

According to his son's day book, Archibald Woods died on December 11, 1768.

Archibald Woods owned land that bordered the Savannah River.

William Woods (about 1744-1804)

1119 I found William H. Clark's will in the Hall County Courthouse last fall.For the use of any interested party, this is what I have on him. I plan to go to Carnesville, Franklin County, Georgia, tomorrow to search the early records at that courthouse.

William H. Clark was a signer of the Watauga Convention, according to one source, and was a private at the Battle of King?s Mountain, NC, in 1780, under Col Sevier. Hefought in the Battle of Eutaw Springs under command of Gen. Francis Marion and Gen. Nathaniel Greene.

He married Elizabeth Sevier, daughter of Gen. John Sevier of Tennessee.John Clark gave a deposition in 1826 regarding the property of Gen. Sevier saying that he had known Gen. Sevier as a near neighbor for many years.He recalled three children of Elizabeth Sevier and William H. Clark:

1. Elizabeth Clark, born July 20, 1787.She married John Elston, son of David Elston of Elizabeth, NJ.John was born Oct. 8, 1775. He and Elizabeth lived near the South Carolina-Georgia border on the Tugaloo River in what was Pendleton District and is now Oconee County. They moved about 1815-16 to Habersham County, Georgia where they lived until 1834 at Owl Swamp.Their next move was to the Creek Nation in the Upper Coccolocco Valley, Alabama. Both died there andare buried on the farm of Allen Alston, their son, in Calhoun County.They had eleven children, six born in Pendleton District and the others in Habersham County.Most of the children moved to Alabama.
2. Sarah Hawkins Clark, born about 1788, and died after June, 1861. Shemarried James Rutherford Wyly.
3. John Clark, who might have died young.


Elizabeth Sevier was born in 1768 in Augusta County, now Rockingham County, Virginia, and died Nov. 15, 1790, at Fort Madison, SC.Her father, John Sevier,was born Sept. 23, 1745, in Augusta County, Virginia, now Rockingham County. He married in 1761 in Frederick County, Virginia, Sarah Hawkins, born in 1746,who died in 1780 in Washington County, Tennessee.

William H. Clark married again and produced a large family.He lived at one point in Franklin County, Georgia, and sold land there to his son-in-law, James R. Wyly.He moved to Hall County, Georgia, where he died June 4, 1843, leaving a will.

A will for Sevier Clark was found in Probate records in Gainesville, Hall County,by Stephen Edmondson, Nov. 2, 2011, written June 12, 1842.It named his wife Elizabeth but no children or other heirs.He left land in Tennessee and Georgia.The will was probated Sept. 12, 1842.This discovery led to the will of William Clark, page 20,dated August 2, 1842, and probated June 13, 1843. The will names his wife, Ruth Clark, and granddaughter, Polly Ann Clark, son John Clark, daughter Sally Wyly, son Oliver Clark.John Clark was named executor and was left the land and home and several slaves.Sally Wyly was left all the cattle stock. Oliver was left a slave, a negro man, Martin. Polly Ann was left two slaves, Piamah and Manda.
Was Sevier Clark another of William?s sons?

From James Taylor Wyly:Oliver Clark lived inCulpeper County, Virginia.He is held by some to be possibly the father of William H. Clark, or a close relative.
The book, "Tennessee Cousins"by Worth S. Ray (Pub. 1950) is a good source (if correct). It is available from
Amazon.com in paperback form at about $20.00.See Page #64. It is under a Carter County, Tenn. heading and talks about William Clark of theWatauga Association (GOOGLE) and his being the son-in-Law of John Sevier.Carter County wascut out of Washington County after 1778.Mr. Worth states that the father of Wm. H. Clark was an Oliver Clark of Culpeper, Va. per Court records of 1763.A recently found Court Document shows an Ephraim, John, and Oliver, as all older Clark family members living in the county at that same time.The birthdate of 1738, which you have sent me on an Oliver Clark, son of William Clark and Winifred Martin, would at least be a possible match for the father of our Wm. H. (B: 1757).Also the "E" on the last name of Clark, as in Col. Elijah Clarke of GA. (Unrelated??) is definitely a possibility early on.Elijah Clarke's last name is
apparently changed, and the letter "E" s dropped by his son John Clark,governor of GA. from 1819-1823.
If you GOOGLE, The Battle ofEutah Springs, SC (1781) in which our Wm. H. participated, I believe they list him as a William Clark-e.An interesting side note is toLt. Col. Richard Campbell, who was KIA at Eutah Springs.He was the brother-in-law of Col. John Sevier, and his wife Sarah Hawkins.Richard was the husband of one of Sarah's sisters - I think a Rebecca Hawkins.Col. Richard Campbell was also a member of the Watauga Association back in NC (1776).At the time of his death in 1781, heowned a farm in Shenandoah County, VA.
By the way the Cemetary in Gainesville, GA.is a DAR Burial Site at the Alta Vista Cemetary. Wm. H. is buried next to his second wife Ruth Goodwin.I have a good contact with the SAR Chapter of Clarkesville, Ga. who you may want to contact regarding the grave location. A very nice man,Bill Raper (706) 778-2546, who took the photos for me. Sorry, but they are glossy photos and I am unable to transmit them electronically.

Sarah Hawkins Clark and James Rutherford Wyly were
married June 1, 1802, in Tennessee.(NOTABLE SOUTHERN FAMILIES gives the year as 1804). However, their first child, William Clark Wyly, was born January 24, 1804, in Blount County, where they lived January 20, 1806, when the second, Elizabeth,was born.

Sarah was a granddaughter ofGov. John Sevier of Tennessee.She was born about 1786 in Washington County, N.C. (now part of Tennessee).After the death of her mother and her father?s remarriage,Sarah was reared by the Governor.According to family tradition, the marriage of James and Sarah took place at the governor?s house in Knoxville, a modestlog place at the time.James and Sarah had eight sons and five daughters, according to the Cleveland Genealogy.Wyly proved to be an energetic businessman, militia officer and public official who acquired much property.

He served as a captain in the Georgia militia under his first cousin, Major Benjamin Cleveland, and participated in the campaigns against the Creeks commanded by Gen. Floyd in 1814.Gen. Sevier was in Alabama running the boundary of lands taken from the Creeks, allies of the British in the War of 1812, when he early fall of fever. Years later,his remains were movedto Tennessee.He was a member of Congress from Tennessee at the time he died.
When Wyly returned to Georgia, he obtainedthe contract to build the Unicoi Turnpike from Walton?s Ford on the Tugaloo River to the North Carolina line north of Hiawassee, connecting with Knoxville.The road, the first into the Cherokee country to carry wagon and coach traffic, was authorized by the governments of Tennessee and Georgia.Wyly built a house on the southern end which became known as Travelers Rest where several of the children were born. This was sold in the 1830?s to Devereaux Jarrett who enlarged the house and continued to operate it as his home and as an inn. Wyly had several other inns, about every ten miles, along the route past Toccoa Falls, the Antioch Mission, the Bethlehem Mission, running north of present day Clarkesville, to Sautee, Nacoochee, Helen, through Unicoi Gap and Hiawassee to the state line.He acquired several town lots when Clarkeville was laid out on land half of which wad donated by his cousin Benjamin Wyly.Both were active in Habersham County affairs. Wyly built a new home in the federal style in Clarkesville, on Georgia 197 today, which was bought by the York family about 1900 and is owned today by their descendants. Wyly owned the Habersham Iron Works which he sold to John C. Calhoun.A biography of James R. Wyly says he attended Greenville College in Tennesee, and lived in 1802 on a farm on the Tennessee River in Blount County. He had a fine library and was well read, his biography stated. His parents and family were Baptists.

However, Wyly was not a faithful husband as Sarah?s divorce action in September, 1836, described.She was granted a divorce by a jury headed by Devereaux Jarrett and duly approved by the Georgia legislature. He lived with a common law wife, Frances Wallace, in Union County until he died March 16, 1854.In his will, he makes no mention of Sarah though their son, John Harris Wyly, and son-in-law, John W.H. Underwood, were executors.
Sarah Hawkins Clark Wyly lived on in Habersham County. She is shown in June, 1860, in the Census in Habersham, living with the Ketchams.Mrs. Sarah Ketcham might be her granddaughter.
Sarah died shortly after, June 29, 1860, in Habersham County and is buried a few feet from her unfaithful husband, her marker making it clear she was a faithful Baptist.
The Wylys had thirteen children.

In Revolutionary War William Trimble along with John Sevier and Clark . A Trimble married Letitia Clark.

Thomas P. Gresham was born 21 May, 1795 in Granville, North Carolina. He died 27 November, 1857 in Calhoun, Ark. He is buried in Tinsman, Calhoun County, Ark. He married Mary Hester 25 Aug., 1804 in the state of North Carolina. He died 20 Sept. 1885 in Calhoun., Ark. She is buried in Tinsman, Calhoun, Ark. In the Newton Cemetery.

In a state to receive his Revolutionary war pension, he moved to Granville County, North Carolina when we was about seven year olds. (this pension mentioned is the one that I emailed to you)
Found this in a Granville forum: My Oliver Gresham was in Wilkes Co., Nc. In 1775-1776, Halifax, NC in 1782, Granville in 1787, Halifax again in 1790 and had at least owned land in Warren, NC sometime before 1790 as his name appeared on the Tax List there in 1790. But he was shown owning no land and paying no tax. I think James Grisham of Granville Co., was my Olver?s brother, apparently a year older than Oliver b. 1758

Revolutionary War Pension Application of Harris Hicks, wife Temperance
No W-4989.
Washington Co Virginia ---- July 26, 1853. Power of Attorney to John W. Stevens of Abingdon, VA from William Hicks, heir of Harris Hicks, a pensioner in the State of NC, in right of pension due the widow from March 4, 1836 to Sept. 29, 1848. Said pension in right of the widow of Harris Hicks, viz. "My mother Temperance Hicks who died on Sept. 29, 1848".
State of North Carolina, Orange Co, Superior Court of Law, Fall Term l832.
Before James Martin, one of the judges of the superior court of law and court of equity, appeared Solomon Whitlow, aged 70 years the 22 April 1832, a resident of Person Co NC, declared as follows: That at about the age of 3 years his parents removed from Hanover Co VA to Tabbs Creek, Granville Co NC. That his mother was the sister of Absolam Hicks who had married and settled in the neighborhood of' his father, within a mile or mile and half of him. That said Absolam Hicks died and left three sons, Bishop, Absolam and Harris Hicks.

Bishop Hicks was apprenticed to Thomas Norman, and Absolam and Harris Hicks were
bounds to Harry Melton to learn the "art and mystery? of a blacksmith. Before his apprenticeship was completed, the said Harris Hicks, contrary to the wish of his master, "Eloped" from him and enlisted as a soldier in the U.S. army under John Farrar in a 9 months tour of duty. This affiant has seen the affidavits of Benjamin Hester (0), Zachariah Hester, James Grisham Sr., Thomas Parham (Short) and Agnes Parham his wife, and fully concurs in the statements made by them. This affiant was a soldier with the said Harris Hicks in the tour of Charleston. (Mentioned death of Genl. Davidson, killed at the Catawba). Said Harris Hicks served as a substitute for Jeremiah Frazier Sr. and as pay received a mare and 2 cows and calves. He also served part of a tour as substitute for his uncle, David Hicks, the latter was in service and desired to return home to his family. Said Harris Hicks was without a wife and family, being a "young, active man". Said Harris Hicks returned home with a ?very sore leg", occasioned by the kick of a horse while on duty in this tour.
Later he joined the Light Horse, under Capt. John Henderson, Lt. John Dickerson, and Capt. Soloman Walker. Harris Hicks' old master, Harry Melton, told him (Harris Hicks) "if he had not run away from him and joined the army, he would not have had such a sore leg and be obliged to undergo the pain and misery of it --- and wished him to come and work with him in his shop ---telling him that if he would do so, he(?) sutton (?), would learn him a great deal in the Trade, which he had never learned him But Hicks declined". Harris Hicks' leg continued to bother him, and he got "old William Cocke to Doctor it for him and under his care it was entirely cured up--- But it very soon had like to have killed him and it broke out anew and then he felt some relief". Harris Hicks was also under the care of Mrs. Taylor, wife of Col. Joseph Taylor. James Satterfield and Thomas Morris of Person Co attest to the foregoing affidavit. An 1832 affidavit of Rankin McKee of Orange Co NC. Certified that he worked with Harris Hicks as a blacksmith, 12 or 14 years ago.
Another message on message board
As you probably know the Hester who married Thomas P. was the daughter of William Hester. Thomas P was a brother to my ggggrandfather Howell Grisham who was the son of James Grisham.

In the 1860 Guilford census Thomas Whittington who sold land to Arthur Grissom lived by the Lambeth/Doggett family. The same Doggett family that Leasure?s brother George Leasure Brown married into.

Posted by: Katherine Woerner (ID *****8457) Date: April 10, 2012 at 11:56:30
of 13773


I am seeking additional information on ANDREW RAY who in 1777 was in Henry Co., VA. Andrew Ray purchased land from Thomas Willingham b. ca 1723 VA at a time when Thomas was selling land there to some of his sons. This fact leads me to think that Andrew Ray MAY HAVE married a daughter of Thomas Willingham. Thomas & Mary Willingham sold land to Andrew Ray (boundary Uriah Hardman, Thomas Willingham, Jr; wit. Samuel Lanier, John Willingham b. ca 1745 would be about age 32, Jessey Willingham) On 14 Oct 1777. Also, Andrew Ray signed the 1777 Oath in Henry Co., VA [copy]. Since Andrew purchased land in 1777, he was at least age 21 and was born by 1756. I have no additional information on Andrew Ray. Thomas Willingham b. ca 1723 VA was in Lunenburg Co., VA [tax] when he moved into Granville Co., NC 1758 [land] and stayed in Granville Co., NC until 1768 [tax, land] and then Thomas moved back into VA to that part of Pittsylvania Co. that became Henry Co., VA in 1776. [land and other records[

Several sons of this Thomas Willingham moved to GA during and shortly after the Revolutionary War and there are Willingham records in GA late 1700s on to present. In the 1830/1840 time period in GA there were Ray/Willingham marriages.

The son, Abner Willingham, of Thomas went to GA shortly after signing the 1777 Oath in Henry Co., VA [Abner's signature was close to than of Andrew Ray.] and Abner was married by 1779 to Peace Wright, daughter of Dionysious Wright of St. Paul's Parish, GA. [Will of Dionysious Wright.]
________________________________________________________
JESSE AND FRANCES HARDMAN WILLINGHAM
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.
[3] 1 female 16-26 (b. 1774-1784) [Unknown---may be Fanny b. 1784]
[4] Samuel b. ca 1783, land records with Jesse, estate records.
[5] Charles Hardman b. ca 1785
[6] Jesse b. 15 May 1790
[7] Alban b. 8 June 1791, married in Oglethrope Co., GA; is not named as a son of Thomas and Judith Finch Willingham. Lived next to William Hardman Jr. in Oglethorpe Co., GA in 1820.
[8] William T. (Troy b. 1795)], married in Oglethorpe Co., GA; is not named as a son of Thomas and Judith Finch Willingham.
[9] Betsy b. 1799
[10] Believe Elvena m. Charles White in Madison Co., GA.
[11] Bushrod Peterson Clacton Willingham, named as son by Jesse in 1831 deed, Book F, p. 19. date 24 Aug 1831, Madison Co., GA.
[12] George Washington Newnan Willingham, named as son by Jesse in 1831 deed, Book F, p. 19. date 24 Aug 1831, Madison Co., GA.


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

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.

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.

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.

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?).

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.

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]

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.

1130 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.

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 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. (Book D p. 194, 195 Richmond / Columbia Co., GA)Thomas Willingham to James Wright DEED 120 Ac. 5 Jan 1789,Recorded 22 September 1797 Signed sealed and delivered in the presence of John Landers, Gilbert Clark,John Kennedy.
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

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. Katherine
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, father of Mary ?Molly? Willingham of 1807 GA land lottery, Mary was in GA by 1804. Mary paid her own tax in 1808, so she must have been born by 1808-21=1787.

Thomas Willingham m. Garnett
Roger O. Willingham says that in the estate (1808) settlement of Eli Garnett of Columbia Co., GA, wife, Sarah., listed as heirs are Elijah and Thomas Willingham who married daughters of Eli. It is believed that these are the sons of William Willingham, 1797 will.
Thomas Willingham b. ca 1776 d. < 1855 m. <1811 Sarah Catherine Garnet, daughter of Eli Garnet and Sarah.

Thomas was > 44 in 1820, b. by 1776.] Thomas probably married ca 1797 at age 21. Since he drew in the 1805 land lottery as a married man, he married before March 1804.

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 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.
