    • RESEARCH NOTES



      The land of Frederick and Frances Dean was located at the head waters of the Deep River. This would be present-day Colfax, Kernersville, Oak Ridge and Walkertown area, I include the latter two locations, as great grandchildren (Thomas Crews Dean) lived in the area of Walkertown and his son in Oak Ridge (Belews Creek).
      The Whickers related to Frederick and Frances Dean, through marriage of their daughter, Mary, to James Whicker, lived in Granville Co. before relocating to the Guilford area some time during or after the American Revolution. I believe the same applies for a Crews line (excuse the expression).
      Judith (in Maine): Note the name of the bondsman in the marriage James Middleton to Lucy Grissom. Judy Bradburn's Dean family includes marriage into a Hicks family.

      Judy (in Indiana): Note the above note (and the marriage to which I refer within the following text).
      In short, without knowing more, if Lucy Grissom was born in Granville Co., I suspect her family is somehow associated with the other families that came from said county and that moved into the Guilford/Stokes area, with that section of Stokes in which they lived evolving later into Forsyth.




      A document (I've included this to be sure I have the right person; just did a quick look at Ancestry -- you're right, the Grissoms do seem to be elusive -- backward from her):
      North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868
      about Lucy Grissom
      Groom: James Middleton
      Bride: Lucy Grissom
      Bond date: 25 Jul 1829
      Bond #: 000057954
      Level Info: North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868
      ImageNum: 003163
      County: Guilford
      Record #: 02 303
      Bondsman: Robert Hicks
      Witness: A E Hanner


      Comments: I am a descendant of the Dean family -- included as a part of your Middleton Family Tree. My ancestor was Isaac Dean, youngest child and son of Frederich and Frances "unknown" Dean -- who settled in North Carolina and begin appearing of record there about 1770. I have been reading Bobby Lykins' "Notes" regarding this family (I know him through family genealogy efforts -- not in person unfortunately). Anyway, in one of the Indentures noted, "Elijah Hester of the County of Stokes and State of North Carolina; Frederick Dean of the County of State of the aforesaid. Parcel of land being and lying in the county aforesaid on the water of the Middle Fork of Belews Creek, adjoining William Wahman? and Thomas Vass? mentions adj. property formerly owned by John Hester. Mentions a John Hester deceased. Witnesses: Nicholas Dean and James Whicker" -- this Nicholas Dean does not appear in any other records about "my" Dean family and I was wondering if you could provide me with more information about him -- parentage, etc.




      Past experience tells me that the bondsman is usually someone know to the family (either side).
      Summerfield is more directly above Greensboro (north), en route to Rockingham County.


      Thanks for sharing your information. It is nice that you have knowledge of the area that we are referring to and know the locations. You mention Oak Ridge...this is the area along with Summerfield that our Middletons lived for the most part. It was after the death of James Middleton, husband of Lucy Grissom, that we find her in Forsyth Co., and also the first time that we find a reference to the Middleton's being in Forsyth. This is the primary reason that we decided this was probably where her family resided.
      You mention the name Hicks/Hix that is listed as a bondsman for James and Lucy. We feel that this is possibly a brother in-law of Lucy's. The Hicks/Hix family can be found in Granville along with the Grissom/Grisham/Gresham's and the other families.

      we do not have a document as proof of the IsaacLee/Elizabeth Middleton marriage but we have followed these families closely and it leaves know doubt as far as I am concerned that this union took place. A note of interest: The Self family that James Middleton Lee married into was also a family that intermarried into the Middleton family when they resided in Westmoreland/Northumberland Co., Virginia.


      1) James Whicker + Mary Dean:
      2) Eli Whicker, their son, who married Elizabeth Phillips, had son:
      3) David Whicker + Martha Caroline Lee, daughter of James Middleton Lee and Rebecca Livingston Self
      4) James Middleton Lee -- in the trees and other docs that appeared -- is the son of
      5) Isaac Lee (1784-1850) and Elizabeth Middleton (1789-1840)


      I do not have your Gresham/Grisham/Grissom family in my tree, but Mary Dean who married James Whicker -- the daughter of our immigrant couple, Frederich and Frances (unknown) Dean (F&F) is -- I haven't added their children

      After I sent this I was searching for more information and on the 1850 Granville census there is a Lucy Grisham living under Elizabeth Hester (she was living with family) so this eliminates the chance that it could be our Lucy. It could be of the same family though. More than likely this Lucy Grissom is the daughter of Elizabeth Hester, so she would be a Lucy Hester that married a Grissom....... It is interesting how the name Parrish pops up....I think you are right that the Parrish family was mixed into our early Grishams.





      Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. The Dean information that I have posted is information that I have been using trying to find the family of our gg-grandmother Lucy Grissom Middleton. I am not sure if the Dean family is related in any way but thought there was a possibility.
      Lucy Grissom Middleton after the death of her husband James Middleton in Guilford County moved between 1850 and 1860 to Forsyth County and is found living next to
      Thomas Crews Dean who married Lucretia Vance. Most often when a moved occured it took place around family. Lucy was listed as being born in Granville County, North Carolina and through searching have noticed where families associated with the Deans also had ties to Granville.
      You mention the Hester and Whicker names and I have noticed the association of these names also with the Dean's. Also you mention Belews Creek and this is the area of Forsyth County (was Stokes County until 1849) where Lucy Grissom Middleton moved to and was neighbors to Thomas Crews Dean.
      Do you know what part of North Carolina your ancestor Frederick and Frances Dean lived?
      I will keep in mind your Dean's as I search.

      I believe that you are on to something with the Oliver/Gates connection. Have you seen the mention of the following on the Granville Henderson website. This James Oliver, son of George Oliver and Jemima Reagan was married to Susanna Lemons. I always thought it was interesting that Harriet's granddaughter first name was Lemon or Lemonds Middleton.
      25 May 1795: William (x) Goff and T. Henderson witnessed a deed from Phillip Gates to James Oliver on Upper Hogan's Creek, a branch of the Dan River.[50]

      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.
      This John Lambeth is of the Lambeth's that are connected to the Doggett family of the wife of George Leazure Brown brother of our Leazure Brown Middleton
      Family of John and Delitha Moore Pearson Lambeth in the 1850 Guilford County Census.

      28 206 206 Lambeth I. G. 5/12 M Guilford NC
      29 206 206 Gates Sarah 12 F
      In an earlier email I mentioned Gates of Rockingham that lived by Olivers and where I also had seen a note that Jemima Barrow's maiden name was Gates. Have know idea if this is correct. Just thought this was interesting.
      One of the reasons I go back to the Doggett/Brown connection of the Middletons is that some of the families that we find with the Olivers in Rockingham later Guilford and also the Dilworths/Moores of Rockingham are found living in the area of Guilford where the Lambeth/Doggett/Brown's lived This is the area of Guilford also where the Whittington's that married Grissoms lived. Just think it could be a possibility that James found Lucy while visiting with the George Leazure Brown and family the brother of his grandmother Leazure Middleton.
      In the 1790 Guilford County County living next to George Leazure Brown is a William and then also a Thomas Whicker which we are fairly certain came from Granville. The area that I have pinpointed as where the Doggett/Browns lived in Brown's Summitt which you will find a nearby road named Doggett Road. It is east of Summerfield area about 20 miles.
      They must of have common family or associations in this area with the families that we find with the Olivers and Dilworths in Rockingham due to the fact we find this Lambeth married to a Moore whose grandfather is also Sullivan Pearson who also is an ancestor in our Oliver/Williams line.

      Remember this about the Dilworth Family and the Whittington'a that married Grissoms.

      I'm glad that you reminded me about George Leasure Brown marrying a Doggett. I remember that he moved to Guilford before our Middletons.



      In regards to the Albert Whittington mentioned in the Whittington family tree that is the son of Nehemiah. Albert married in 1856 Julia Ann Lewis and they had two children Lucetta Whittington born abt. 1858 and Albert b. abt 1860. Albert (the father) died in 1860 and in 1861 Julia Ann Lewis Whittington married William Dilworth. You will find William and Julia listed in the 1870 Monroe Township, Monticello P. O. Guilford County census. Also interesting is that Monticello is listed as being on Doggett Rd., so they are living close to the Doggetts. In the 1860 Guilford County census Thomas Whittington (that married Anna Grissom), brother of Nememiah, was living by the Lambeth family that married into the Doggett family. Leasure Brown Middleton's brother George Leasure Brown married a Doggett and this is their descendents.
      This was the second marriage for both. William Dilworth was first married to Mary Gant in 1854, Guilford , she is the daughter of William Gant and Sally Wyrick. I have ran across the Wyrick name some.
      I have not been able to find out how this William is related to Harvey Dilworth, the father of the children living with Lucy but I have know doubt that they are related.




      The email exchange below talks about the Pegram family. In doing some research on the Robert P. Hutchins family today, I stumbled across another Pegram connection. Robert's father was Smith Hutchins. His mother was Mary Elizabeth Knott. Mary Elizabeth Knott was the granddaughter of Justin Knott and a first cousin of Elizabeth Knott (also a granddaughter of Justin Knott), who married George Pegram.

      By the way, Elizabeth Knott's mother was Elizabeth Madieras, mentioned in your email.




      Thanks. This is great and it helps so much to write it down. I think that's why we finally started the website because we might go several months not researching with family and work and then try to pick up the pace and try to remember. I will forward to Kathie if you don't mind.


      This is another discussion of the Moses Barrow family. Our John Alexander Middleton married Mary Oliver who had first married a Daniel Pegram (died in Civil War) who was kin to the Pegarm family that Nancy Burrow married. I just noticed the name Bell in this e-mail and remembered your e-mail that mentions a Bell family. I wonder is this is the same family?



      Yes there was a Moses Barrow Jr. and this is the same family.
      When I see the Medearis name it is one that I looked at today.

      http://www.mindspring.com/~kellcin/massey.htm
      Notice the name Sarah Hicks Bell. A Robert Bell was listed on one of the deeds between Sihon Tatum and Barrow.
      Then you will see a Anna Hicks living with a Martha Walker in the 1850 Forsyth Co census
      next to the Jemima Barrow (where Lucy looks to be living in 1860) I keep noticing the Hicks name due to the Hicks family in Granville.
      have a lot of information about Robert Bell and his son Francis (my gggg grandfather)
      Robert Bell was Capt. in the Revolution. He raised nineteen children. Chi 1 thru 5 were from Catherine Walker, who d 1772/3 and was dau of John Walker.
      Capt. Robert Bell, b 1731/32 Ulster, Ireland, d Feb 1816 of smallpox Davidson Co, TN, m 1st ca 1763 Catherine Walker, d 1770, m 2nd 1-1-1775 Mary Boyd, b 1754, dau of John & Rebecca Boyd. Rebecca Boyd sold land on Belews Cr. to Robert Bell 2-22-1784 in Guilford Co, NC. Ref: book A-1, page 306. This 320 acres had been sold 4-14-1767 to Rebecca, widow of John. Land was near Bledsoe's Lick.

      Robert had a land grant from Earl of Granville for 360 acres on Haw Rv in Guilford Co, NC in 1762. He sold this to his bro, Samuel, 1770. His father-in-law, John Walker, a wit, also his bro, Francis Bell. Robert was in said Co # 691, with 3 males under 10, he 27-45, 1 female 27-45, another female over 45, 1 slave. Neighbors were Jehu Cox and James Johnson.
      A native of Caswell County, N.C., Robert Bell had moved to Guilford County prior to the Revolution and settled "about nine miles" from Guilford Courthouse. He had married Catherine Walker, probably in the eary 1760's, and had become the father of six children before his wife died early in the 1770's. He later married Mary Boyd and sired thirteen more children. Following the Revolution, he and his brother Samuel joined the throng of emigrants who moved into central Tennessee. Robert's first home in Tennessee is said to have been north of the Cumberland River.
      Captain Bell was given a North Carolina land grant for 2568 acres in Tennessee. It is believed that he died there in 1816. (NOTE: HE DIED IN DAVIDSON COUNTY, February 1816, OF SMALLPOX) They are mentioned in the Buffalo Pres. Church records. Robert received 2,560 acres for his service. Goodspeed's History of TN, pp 1080-81.
      He had come to Sumner Co, TN for a short time, before settling in Davidson Co. There was a Robert
      Bell on Drake's Cr in 1794.




      There is a Nancy Barrow that married into the Pegram family that states she is the daughter of a Moses Burrow and Sallie Warren. I thought of the Pegram because in reading the information from find a grave had a name Medaris or something like that whose family had married into the Pegram family too. Would this Moses Barrow be a son to the Moses Barrow that you mentioned earlier with Jemima?


      137. Allen Walker Pegram (John-3, Edward-2, Daniel-1) was born on 13 Jan 1823 in Guilford Co., North Carolina. He died on 13 Jul 1911 in Guilford Co., North Carolina. Allen Walker Pegram attended old Trinity College and became a teacher. During the Civil War he served in the Home Guard - Commissary Dept. When he married Nancy Barrow, the ceremony was preformed by the Rev. Thomas H. Pegram.
      The 1900 Census shows the couple have been married for 45 years. They have had 4 children, all living.
      Allen Walker Pegram and Nancy Barrow were married on 4 Sep 1855. Nancy Barrow (daughter of Moses Barrow and Sallie Warren) was born on 26 Dec 1834 in North Carolina. She died on 1 Jan 1934. In 1920 she was living with her daughter, Mary Elizabeth Pegram and her husband, Francia Marion Pegram. Allen Walker Pegram and Nancy Barrow had the following children:

      +615 i. Julius Martin Pegram, born on 18 Jul 1856, Guilford Co., North Carolina; married Annie Cummings, on 20 Aug 1884, Guilford Co., North Carolina; died on 19 May 1939, Greensboro, Guilford Co., North Carolina.
      616 ii. Henry Wilson Pegram was born on 6 Jan 1857 in Guilford Co., North Carolina. He died on 20 Dec 1917. He never married.
      +617 iii. Mary Elizabeth Pegram, born on 25 Mar 1860, Guilford Co., North Carolina; married Francis Marion Pegram, on 1 Jun 1886, Guilford Co., North Carolina; died on 16 May 1955, Guilford Co., North Carolina.
      +618 iv. Charles Virgil Pegram, born on 2 Oct 1868; married Sallie Lucy Ogburn, on 18 Feb 1897; died on 23 Aug 1960.




      As we look at this Jemima Grissom I think if she is not the mother of Lucy she may be the grandmother. Looking at the age she would be 40 or so when she had Lucy so she is actually old enough to be the grandmother also.


      The Hicks (or Hix) connection also strikes a cord. The Middletons are linked to the Hix families in another way. Luhanna Middleton's son, James Robert Hutchins, married Virginia "Jenny" Love. Her grandfather was Lewis Hix Peeples Love. I believe his mother was Tobitha Peeples, whose parents were Lewis Peeples and Jane Hix. (Tobitha, known to the family as "the widow Vaughan, was almost as hard to track down as Lucy.


      Stumbled across this today.
      There is a Jemima Grisham in the 1820 Stokes County Census
      Female above the age of 45
      One male under the age of 10
      One female under the age of 10
      Two females of sixteen and under the age of twenty six
      Decided to go and use the census of 1860 Forsyth County and look again where Lucy was living and her neighbors.
      Decided to look again at her neighbor Thomas Crews Dean who married Lucretia Vance.
      Found a note for a Thomas Crews will dated 14 May 1830, proved 1841. Stokes Co.
      This Thomas Crews married a Mary Talley and they were from Granville. Grandparents of Thomas Crews Dean living by Lucy.
      Witnesses: George Linville and Jemima Linville.
      When I saw the name Jemima decided to search this and came upon information on Moses Barrow Sr. who married a Jemima.
      http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=41809377
      This information shows that his widow is living with son Phillip Barrow in 1850 Forsyth County Census. Looking at the 1850 census Forsyth County and you find Jemima living with son and the house above is occupied by John Clayton the very same family that lives above Lucy in the 1860 census. Now is that strange or what. Did Lucy move back after the death of James to this home where Jemima lived?
      Come to find out these Barrows owned property in Guilford County on the Haw River and on the Guilford/Forsyth County line. (Forsyth County was made out of part of Stokes Co. in 1849). Also they had bought/sold land with Sion Tatum and the Peebles.
      In the 1830 Stokes County census this Jemima Grisham is listed as Jeremiah but it is Jemima because there is not an adult male in the household.
      One male under 5
      One female under 5
      One female 25-30 (one female had left the houshold) Lucy married in 1829
      One female 70-80
      Listed on the same page as John Clayton
      She is not listed in the 1840 census.
      Did this Jemima Grisham marry Moses Barrow Sr, after 1830 and the death of his wife, the mother of his children. I wonder if it was assumed that this was his only marriage and this Jemima was the mother of his children because she was named as his wife in his will?



      Hix in Guilford County

      Robert Hickes security for the marriage of James and Lucy. Are the Hix?s below of the same Hicks/Hix family. Sally Hix looks as if she could be the mother and she is born in Granville. The others may be siblings and they are born in Guilford. My thoughts are that they are living in different households as domestic help.
      Is this Sally Hix the Sarah Grisham that married Robert Hicks 1821 in Granville County. Possibly Lucy?s sister.

      (The above mentioned Soloman Warren married a daughter of Moses Barrow, the same family that possibly Jemimah is living with in Forsyth County)

      Jemima Barrow living with son Philip Barrow. Martha Love Walker living next door. She is of the Love/Middleton family. Love genealogy says that Anna Hicks is her daughter but is not shown to be a daughter in the will of Martha?s husband Robert Walker. Walkertown in Forsyth is named after Robert Walker and the Love Methodist Church is named after this Love family.

      Also living above the Barrows is the same Clayton family that were neighbors to Lucy Middleton in the 1860 Forsyth County Census.
      1820 Stokes County Census Jeremiah/Jemima Grissom 1 male under 10, 1 female under 10, 2 females 16-26, 1 female 45+
      1830 Stokes County Census Jeremiah/Jemima Grissom1 male under 5, 1 female under 5, 1 female 5-10, 1 female 20-30, 1 female 70-80

      1830 Stokes Elizabeth Hicks, 1 female under 5, 1 female 15-20 no males
      Did this Jemima Grissom marry Moses Burrow possible after they were both widowed. Did he write his will in 1830 after he married Jemima. Notice the names of two friends Barham and Harris. In Moses Barrow will he left tenements to Jemima and then to Aaron and Phillip. She is living with Phillip more than likely in the house that Moses Barrow left her in the will. In 1860 Census Forysth you find Lucy Middleton living close to members of the same Clayton family. Same area?
      Birth: 1759
      Brunswick County
      Virginia, USA
      Death: Sep., 1840
      Stokes County
      North Carolina, USA

      Moses Barrow was born in 1759, the son of William Barrow and Amy Lee Barrow. The year of his birth has also been given as 1765, in Meherrin Parish, Brunswick County, Virginia. The Barrow Family report found in the Brunswick Courthouse reports that Moses was born in 1759. Neither report is documented. He married a woman named Jemima sometime around 1795, in Stokes County, North Carolina, and they had the following children, perhaps more:

      1) Moses Barrow, born February 27, 1801 in Stokes County, North Carolina; he married Sallie Warren (1804-1846), then married Martha ________, perhaps the Widow Lowry. Moses died in 1877
      2) Charles Barrow, born 1803 in Stokes County, North Carolina; he married Anna Ziglar in 1820, and he died in 1830. His father's will mentions his deceased son, Charles Barrow, who also had a son named Charles.
      3) Aaron Barrow, born 1807 in North Carolina; he married Temperance Barham in 1831. His death date is not known.
      4) Frances (Fanny) Barrow (female) born 1808 in Stokes County, North Carolina; she married Crawford Dobson in 1818. She died sometime before 1840, leaving a son, Franklin.
      5) Elizabeth Barrow, born 1808 in Stokes County, North Carolina; she married George Linville
      6) Phillip Barrow, born 30 October 1809 in Bethania Township, Winston-Salem, (Stokes County) North Carolina; he married Elizabeth Zimmerman (1807-1879)
      7) William Barrow, born 18 February 1818 in Stokes County, North Carolina (birth date can't be right); he married Betsey Medearis in 1818. Moses' will names William's daughters, Luiza and Susanna. William died in 1830.
      8) Amy Barrow, born 1819 in Stokes County, North Carolina (birth date can't be right); she married William Hester.

      Moses Barrow died in Stokes County, North Carolina, in September of 1840.

      THE FOLLOWING TEXT IS TAKEN FROM THE BARROW FAMILY HISTORY, COMPILED BY SANDRA PASER:

      Moses Barrow39,40,41, born Abt. 1765 in Mehererin Parish, Brunswick County, Virginia; died Sep 1840 in Stokes County, North Carolina; married Jemima Abt. 1795 in ; born 1767 in Stokes County, North Carolina; died Aft. 09 Nov 1850 in North Carolina.

      Notes for Moses Barrow:
      Richard Oyler reports that Moses was born in 1765 in Meherrin Parish, Brunswick County, Virginia; died in September 1840 in Stokes County, North Carolina. His wife's name was Jemima____. The Barrow Family report found in the Brunswick Courthouse reports that Moses was born in 1759. Neither report is documented.
      In the World Tree on Ancestry it is reported that Moses Barrow died 3 August 1830 in Stokes County. Source unknown. (This was the date of his will?TH)

      Patricia Jones submitted her report about William Barrow as part of her "Doran Family of Indianapolis" in November 2003. Here she reports that Moses, William Barrow's son, ""Received a State Land Grant of 250 acres in Guilford County, North Carolina (Grant No. 2401) about 1786, on both sides of Herbin's Creek, on the Waters of the Dan River, adjoining the land of his brother-in-law, John Forgason. Patricia speculates that Moses served in the nearby "Battle of Guilford Courthouse" a major battle of the Revolutionary War.
      She notes that Moses later sold this land and moved with his father, William to Stokes County, where they lived out the rest of their lives--in the area of today's Winston-Salem, now in Forsythe County, North Carolina.

      Moses is mentioned in the diary of his brother, Rev. David Barrow, when David stopped to visit him in August 1795, after his travels through Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. David's report is on page 35 of his diary:
      "15th. Saturday morning. Cloudy and cool. It rained a little this morning. At about 9 o'clock, I left my brother's (brother Daniel. After 8 or 9 miles, found that the wind had been much more severe than it was at (Daniel's). I passed through Stokes County, North Carolina (on his way to Rockingham County) At about the setting of the sun, I reached my brother, Moses. I felt much revived in body and mind; for it seemed as though I had gotten into my own neighborhood. Rode this day 35 miles.
      "16th. Sunday morning. Fair and very pleasant. There was a Methodist meeting in the settlement this day. I sent word to my father that I was come to my brother's. He came early to see me. We went to the meeting. It was a funeral occasion. The preacher, whose name is McKinney, gave me an invitation to preach after he had done. I accepted the invitation, and held forth from Luke 15:2. I had tolerable liberty, thank God. This evening, I went to my father's. I had a most affectionate meeting with my father, brothers, etc. Rode this day 9 miles.
      "17th. Monday. Fair and pleasant weather...some friends came to see me: to wit, Mr. Barham and Mr. Harris. This evening I went and lodged with my brother, Aaron's who lives hard by my father.
      "18th. Tuesday. Fair. Came to my father's in the morning. In the afternoon, in company with him and brother, Aaron, went to my sister Forgerson's. (Sister, Hannah, married to John Forgison). My brother in law was not at home. Tarried all night. 11 miles."

      Moses was counted in the 1800 census of Salisbury Township, Stokes County, North Carolina:
      3 Males under 10; 1 male 26-45; 1 female under 10; 2 females 10-16; 1 female 26-45.
      His brother, Aaron was living in the same Township.

      I didn't find him in 1810.

      Kelly Leighton's document found in the Brunswick County, Virginia Courthouse says that, "By 1815, William Barrow Sr. was living with his son Moses in Guilford County, North Carolina. He had signed over all of his belongings to Moses:
      (See "Notes" for William Barrow Sr.).

      Moses and his descendants remained in Stokes County and his siblings moved on to Kentucky and later to Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri.

      Moses was still in Stokes County in 1820:
      2 males 10-16; 1 male 16-26; 1 male 45 & up; 1 female 16-26; 3 females 45 & up; 4 persons engaged in agriculture; 1 Free colored male 14-26; 1 Free Colored female under 14; no slaves.
      Also residing in Stokes County were William Barrow age 26-45 and Charles Barrow, age 16-26. They were heads of separate households. (Probably Moses' sons, who died before Moses made his Will.)

      Moses Sr. is listed in the 1830 census of Stokes County, North Carolina. His household:
      2 males 20-30; 1 male 60-70; 1 female 5-10; 1 female 10-15; 2 females 60-70. Moses Barrow Jr. lived in the adjacent household:
      3 males under 5; 1 male 10-15; 1 male 20-30; 1 female 20-30.

      Moses Sr. is not included in the 1840 census. His three sons, Aaron, Philip and Moses were all counted in Stokes County in that year.

      Mae Belle Barrow North includes a transcript of Moses' will on page 180 of her book, "The Barrow Family of Virginia 1620-1972":
      The Will of Moses Barrow of Stokes County, North Carolina
      "In the Name of God, Amen"

      Jemima was living in Forsyth County, North Carolina in 1850 with her son Philip:
      Jemima Barrow, age 83, born in North Carolina

      Faye Jarvis Moran's web site lists the following children of Moses and Jemima Barrow. She adds information to the names as they were reported in Moses' will:
      Elizabeth Barrow married George Linville
      Frances or Fanny (died before 1840, leaving a son Franklin) married Crawford Dobson in 1818
      Amy Barrow married William Hester
      Charles Barrow (1803-1830) married Anna Ziglar in 1820; his father's will mentions his deceased son, Charles Barrow who had a son named Charles.
      William Barrow (died 1830) married Betsey Medearis in 1818; Moses' will names William's daughters, Luiza and Susanna
      Moses Barrow (1801-1877) married (1) Sallie Warren (1804-1846); (2) Martha--Maybe Widow Lowry?
      Aaron Barrow (born abt 1807--?) married Temperance Barham (born abt 1814--?) They were married in 1831
      Phillip Barrow (1809-1871) married Elizabeth Zimmerman (1807-1879)

      Ancestry World Tree lists these same children, with a little more specific information about birth dates and locations. I have not tried to verify their accuracy--SP:
      Moses Barrow, born 27 February 1801 in Stokes, North Carolina
      Charles Barrow, born 1803 in Stokes, North Carolina
      Aaron Barrow, born 1807 in Guilford, Rockingham County, North Carolina
      Frances Barrow (female) born 1808 in Stokes, North Carolina
      Elizabeth Barrow, born 1808 in Stokes, North Carolina
      Phillip Barrow, born 30 October 1809 in Bethania Township, Winston-Salem, (Stokes Co) NC
      William Barrow, born 18 February 1818 in Stokes, North Carolina (birth date can't be right)
      Amy Barrow, born 1819 in Stokes, North Carolina (birth date can't be right)

      (Note: from the composition of the family in the 1800 census, it seems that there were at least 6 children born before 1800, and not included in this list--or maybe they were caring for someon else's children?--SP)

      Notes for Jemima:
      From Faye Jarvis Moran:
      Jemima, whose maiden name is unknown, appears in the 1850 Census of Forsythe County, North Carolina. She was living with her son, Philip. They were in Household #1482. (Date of Census 9 November 1850)

      In regards to Andrew, son of Elizabeth Moore and Harvey Dilworth, he is living with Lucy Middleton along with other Dilworth children in the 1860 Forsyth County, North Carolina Census. link to copy of census page http://northernneckmiddletons.com/showmedia.php?mediaID=31&medialinkID=84
      9 Aug 1860 Census, Forsyth County, NC (Salem P.O.): Farmer Harvey Dilworth 52, born NC, with real and personal property worth $150 and $250; Eliza 47, born NC; Julia F. 26; day laborer John L. age 24, with personal property valued at $20; William 22, also a day laborer; Rachel J. 20.[109] Where is young Andrew?
      Lucy Middleton's maiden name was Grisham/Grissom but we have been unable to find her family. If you have any information or idea as to a possibility of a relation between Lucy Grissom Middleton and the Harvey Dilworth family would like to have your thoughts or ideas as to why the Dilworth children were living with her. Between 1850 and 1860 she moved to Forsyth County from Guilford County after the death of her husband James Middleton. All Middleton relatives were in Guilford County so we feel that her move to Forsyth was in connection to her family.




      I'm also wondering if this Lee connection could be kin to our Elizabeth Middleton and Isaac Lee.

      I was reading your e-mail about the Martha Love today and would like to learn more about the Love.


      Martha was born 24 Mar 1779 in Charlotte County, Virginia. The daughter of John and Ruth Crook Love, her family moved to Surry County NC ca. 1782. They lived in the section of Surry County that soon after became Stokes in 1789 and later changed to Forsyth County in 1849. The 1850 Forsyth County census enumerates Martha as being born in Virginia. This bit of information is important in that it signals the family had not made the move to North Carolina prior to Martha?s 1779 birth.
      Martha?s family founded Love?s Methodist Church ca. 1795 in Stokes County. Today the church stands southwest of Walkertown on Rocky Branch Road in Forsyth County. Dated 11 Dec 1803, Martha Love married Robert Walker Junior in Stokes County. Archibald Campbell was bondsman and the bond was witnessed by A. Robinson. The namesake of Walkertown, Robert Junior is the son of Robert Sr. who also lived and died in Stokes County.
      Dated 22 Oct 1847, Robert Walker wrote a last will and testament. Not only does he mention his wife Martha, but also states the names of his daughters and to whom they were married.
      Martha Walker is enumerated as 72 years of age in the 1850 Forsyth County. Living with her is her 20 year old daughter Anna Hicks. Martha Love Walker died and was buried on 25 Mar 1853 at Love?s Methodist Church. The name Robert Walker does not appear in the published cemetery records for Love?s Church. The stone may be worn or unmarked. I can only believe that he is buried at the church somewhere near his wife of so many years. The children of Robert Junior and Martha Love Walker are:




      When I see the name Myrick, first thing that comes to mind is seeing a researcher in Middleton forums with the name Myrick. Can't remember her name. Was there someone in the Middleton DNA composition that descended from Martin Middleton? Will have to look.
      I also wonder if this is the same Lee family that married Elizabeth Middleton (Isaac Lee)?
      Also haven't really looked into it much, but William Middleton's wife, Elizabeth Landman, had as I believe grandparents someone that was a Barrow. I would have to look at this family to remember the connection.
      Also the Middleton/Love family that we find in Forsyth County was from Brunswick, which I have started to think may be of some relation to our family.

      Subject: Re: Amy Lee married William Barrow- Notice the name William Barrow in the will of this William Lee Sr. who was the father of Amy Lee. Also interesting about an Isaac Row Walton mentioned in will...


      Remember that we saw a Lee connection with this Moses Barrow since there was a tree on ancestry that showed his parents as Moses Barrow Sr. and Amy Lee. The parents of this Amy Lee were William Lee Sr. and Rebecca Burchett and there is family tree on rootweb that reflect Amy Lee born in 1732 in Isle of Wight, VA and died in 1781 in Stokes County, N.C. Anyway, found some deed records in Brunswick County, VA; whereas, there is a mention of a John Myrick mentioned in a deed record with William Lee and Rebecca (Burchett) Lee. Notice the John Myrick married to an Ann Lee. In some trees they show her name as Amy but got confused since it was the Amy Lee that was married to William Barrow. Anyway, the John Myrick that was married to this daughter, Ann? Lee is interesting because this Myrrick family was tied to a Middleton family. This John Myrrick had connections with a Middleton family somehow???? I have seen that he might have been descended from an Owen Myrick w

      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.

      This John Lambeth is of the Lambeth's that are connected to the Doggett family of the wife of George Leazure Brown brother of our Leazure Brown Middleton

      29 206 206 Gates Sarah 12 F

      In an earlier email I mentioned Gates of Rockingham that lived by Olivers and where I also had seen a note that Jemima Barrow's maiden name was Gates. Have know idea if this is correct. Just thought this was interesting.

      One of the reasons I go back to the Doggett/Brown connection of the Middletons is that some of the families that we find with the Olivers in Rockingham later Guilford and also the Dilworths/Moores of Rockingham are found living in the area of Guilford where the Lambeth/Doggett/Brown's lived This is the area of Guilford also where the Whittington's that married Grissoms lived. Just think it could be a possibility that James found Lucy while visiting with the George Leazure Brown and family the brother of his grandmother Leazure Middleton.

      In the 1790 Guilford County County living next to George Leazure Brown is a William and then also a Thomas Whicker which we are fairly certain came from Granville. The area that I have pinpointed as where the Doggett/Browns lived in Brown's Summitt which you will find a nearby road named Doggett Road. It is east of Summerfield area about 20 miles.

      They must of have common family or associations in this area with the families that we find with the Olivers and Dilworths in Rockingham due to the fact we find this Lambeth married to a Moore whose grandfather is also Sullivan Pearson who also is an ancestor in our Oliver/Williams line.

      Ordered that a Commission issue to any two Justices of this County to take relinquishment of

      dower of Catharine Gates wife of Josiah gates for the Land which he the said Gates sold John Oliver.

    • ELM GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH CEMETERY/OLIVER/WINFREE/HICKS/REID
      I have been looking into the Hicks/Hix family through different families and came upon this cemetery. One of the memorials mention church members and Olivers and Reeds are listed. The Elm Grove Baptist Church is about a mile away. Wonder if this is the church were John Alexander saw his bride to be?
      Also you will notice this Isaac Oakes was a neighbor to the Olivers in the 1870 Guilford Census (it is on our website). The Olivers are buried here. What brought me here is an Anna Eliza Hicks Winfrey that is buried here. I have looked into the Winfrey/Winfree before..they seem to have owned property very close to the Ogburns where the Middleton cemetery is located. Living with Anna Eliza Hicks Winfrey and her husband John Stewart Winfrey in the 1870 Guilford North Carolina Census in Sarah Hicks age 67 and is listed on the census as being "in Family". This would be approx the same age of Sally/Sarah Hicks that was married to Robert Hicks listed as the bondsman for James and Lucy. The Winfree/Winfrey's have a website and mentions Anna Eliza Hicks father as George Hicks, but finding the family it does not mention a Sarah Hicks as child nor a Robert Hicks. Can't find a link to show Sarah Hicks as how she would be part of the family of Anna Eliza Hicks and John Stewart Winfrey (1870 Guilford Census) if they have Anna Eliza Hicks with the correct family.

      I have found the family of John Stewart Winfrey in the 1860 census next door to Isaac Lea

      In 1830 there is a Howel Hicks in the Stokes Census that would have been born 1760-1770. Didn 't find a Howell Hicks listed in Granville until I saw mentioned in Granville marriage records mention of a Jenny Hicks marrying and her father was Howell Hicks, so that leads me to believe that a Howell Hicks lived in Granville at one time whether the same one who knows.
