    • Jeremiah Middleton and
      Nancy S. Harrison Middleton By Annie Rogers

      Jeremiah Middleton, Hugh?s father and Sophia?s grandfather was born on 30 December 1788 . According to one document Jeremiah and Nancy were married on 28 May 1808. However, in an 1812 Bounty Land Warrant, ?she further states that she was married to the said Jeremiah Middleton in Westmoreland County on the 15 day of August AD 1810 by one Charles Bell, a man legally authorized to marry and that her name before her said marriage was Nancy Harrison. (see page 24 of this document).

      They had seven children:
      Benjamin Middleton Born 1815 Died 1878
      Hannah Lane Middleton Purcell Born 1820 Died 1904
      Jeremiah Middleton Born 1825 Died 1895
      Robert Middleton Born 1826
      Martha Middleton Jewell Born 1829 Died April 1887
      Hugh Middleton Born c1832 Died 1889
      Mary Middleton Mothershead Born c1832 Died 1887

      The 1840 census and earlier, only list the head of the household plus numbers for the
      ages of the male and female children. Thus one has to do some deducing.

      The 1840 census lists a Jeremia D. Meddleton (Jeremiah B. Middleton), living in Westmoreland, Virginia. There were nine free whites and one female slave, age 36 to 54, living in the household. There was one male under 5 believed to be Hugh; one male 10 to 14 believed to be Jeremiah; one male 15 to 19 believed to be Robert, one male 20 to 29 believed to be Benjamin; one male 50 to 59 believed to be their father, Jeremiah; one female under 5 believed to be Mary; one female 15 to 19 believed to be Martha, one female 20 to 29 believed to be Hannah, and one female 50 to 59, believed to be their mother, Nancy Harrison, Middleton. Three of those listed were employed in agriculture.

      Note: Based on the 1840 and 1850 census, Hugh?s father, Jeremiah Middleton died sometime before 1850. In her application for a bounty land warrant, Nancy Middleton stated: that her said husband died at his residence in Westmoreland County, VA on the 25th day of May AD 1844 and that she is now a widow

      The 1830 census in Westmoreland, Virginia for Jeremiah Middleton shows a total of 13 persons living in the household. Ten were free white persons; two were slaves, and one was a free colored person. The white male under 5 is believed to be Jeremiah; the white male 5 to 9 is believed to be Robert; the white male 10 to 14 is believed to be Benjamin, the free white male 20 to 29 is unknown; the free white male 40 to 49 is the father, Jeremiah. The free white female 5 to 9 may have been Martha; the 2 free white females age 15 to 19 are believed to be Hannah and an unknown. The free white female age 40 to 49 is the mother, Nancy. There was one free colored female age 24 to 35; one male slave age 24 to 35; and one female slave age 10 to 23.
      The 1820 census shows Jeremiah Middleton living in Westmoreland, Virginia. There were 6 free white persons living in the household. There were 3 males under 10 believed to be Benjamin, and 2 unknowns; one male 26 to 44, the father Jeremiah; two free white females 16 to 25, one of whom would be the mother, Nancy, and one unknown. Two people were engaged in agriculture and one in manufacturing. Perhaps one of the children under 10 should have been a female, perhaps Hugh?s older sister, Hannah.

      The 1810 census shows Jeremiah Middleton living in Westmoreland, Virginia. There was a total of 4 household members: one free white male under 10 unknown; one free white male 16
      to 25 ? Jeremiah; one free white female 16 to 25, the mother Nancy; and one free white Female 26 to 44, perhaps Jeremiah?s or Nancy?s mother. Note: However, the Middleton name was almost extinct in Westmoreland County by 1810, when the federal census shows only one Middleton, to wit, Jeremiah.



      Hugh?s father, Jeremiah (Jerry) Middleton died, as mentioned above on 25 May 1844.

      Hugh?s mother, Nancy Harrison Middleton,
      died on November 15, 1869 in Westmoreland, VA. She was born around 1789, and was 80 years of age. She was female, white and married. Her spouse was Jerh Middleton. Her mother was N. Harrison and her father Saml Harrison. FHL Film Number 2048588
