John T. Boone and Trucey Jane Noblin

I'm looking for parents and siblings of my great-great-grandfather, John T. BOONE b. 1820 in North Carolina. He married Trucey Jane NOBLIN b. 1828 in Rockingham Co., N.C. Her father and mother were Christopher and Talitha NOBLIN. Christopher was born in Halifax Co. N.C. I'm not sure that John T. was born in Rockingham, but I believe there's a strong possiblility. This couple was living in Weakley Co., Tenn. by 1850, according to the census of that year. I would appreciate any information on John T. Boone. My e-mail address is brug@3web.net . Thank you.

Re: Crowder Family
Donald R. Simpson ::DRSMP@Qwest.net 6

I have an interest in some other Crowders who were probably related to your Anderson Crowder of Jacobs Creek. Nathaniel Simpson made his will in 1827, probated May, 1830, Guilford County, witnesses Jeremiah Crowder & Sally Crowder. This Jeremiah presumably the son of the Jeremiah Crowder who made will Jan., 1795, probated Feb., 1795, Guilford Co. The will named sons Isaac, John, William, Anderson, Jeremiah & Pleasant, and daughters Sarah wife of Joseph Pritchet, Fanny Wilson Crowder, Elizabeth Crowder, Patsy Crowder, and wife Martha. Possibly your Anderson of Jacobs Creek was the one named in the 1795 will(??).

Nathaniel Simpson of 1827 will had son, Nathaniel, Jr., and son, Nathan Simpson, both of whom moved in 1830's to Kentucky, settling on both sides of the Grant & Pendleton County line. 1850 census Grant Co. lists Nathaniel,Jr., age 76 with daughter, Jane, age 37, son Richard, age 30, and Anderson S. Crowder, age 14, all born N.C.

Anderson was married 1855 Grant Co. to Priscilla Simpson, daughter of John & Mary (Mileham) Simpson. John was son of Nathan & Patience (Hillman) Simpson. I have not been able to find evidence for parents of Anderson S. Crowder.

Nathaniel Simpson, Sr., (will of 1827) had older brother, Thomas Simpson who lived Jacobs Creek, Rockingham County, 1792 to ca. 1808, then moved to middle Tn. Nathaniel also had sister & brother-in-law, Thomas & Elizabeth (Simpson) Knight who lived Jacobs Creek until ca. 1808 when they went to middle Tn. They left son, Thomas Knight, Jr., on Jacobs Creek where he remained.

Sheila T. Nance ::rob-n-sheila@erols.com

Looking for the parents of the following brothers: William P. Noles (b. ~1823) , Daniel T. Noles (b. ~1821), & John Noles (b.~1828). Daniel T. Noles married Martha E. Reid on 10/7/1845 in Guilford County. John Noles married Charlotte Smith in Forsyth County. William P. Noles married Sarah H. Ledwell on 4/20/1852 in Mecklenburg County. All three of these brothers moved together from Rockingham County to Guilford, to Forsyth, and then to Mecklenburg. William stayed in Mecklenburg as a shoemaker and Daniel continued on to Lincoln. John disappeared from the North Carolina census after 1850 (Forsyth). I believe their mother's name was Lucinda. I also believe they are descended from one of the following brothers in Rockingham County: William Noles, David Noles (b. 1798) or John Noles (b. 1796). Some of their cousins also moved to Mecklenburg County and some of them moved on to Tennessee. There was a Abraham Noles (b. ~1795) in Mecklenburg County whom I believe to be their uncle. Any information on these Noles brothers or on Martha Reid (Daniel's wife) would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Crowder Family
Cheryl Fromhold ::fromholdfam@home.com 13


I'm thrilled to find someone who is interested in this line also!! What is your connection to this family? The Anderson S. Crowder that you mention as living with Nathaniel Simpson in Grant Co. KY in 1850 and marrying Prissilla Simpson is my great-great grandfather. I have a lot of information on his descendents, but have been looking for quite some time for any clue as to who his parents were. I have suspected that the Anderson listed as a son of Jeremiah Crowder who died 1795 Guilford is a likely candidate for my Anderson's father, but have no solid proof. This land record, dated 1857, that lists Anderson as deceased and having a son named Anderson, is the first hopeful lead I've had. I also think that Jeremiah M.,another of the children listed in that deed, was married to Eliza B. Simpson abt. 1856 (his 2nd marriage). There is a stong connection between the Simpson and Crowder families!

Let me know if you think we could share info. Hopefully we can help each other out!




Joan Straka ::jomastr@hotmail.com

Looking for the parents of John Bankston who was supposedly born in Rockingham Co or Guilford Co on May 8, 1760. He became a Baptist minister and married Mary Lanier, daughter of James Lanier and Mary Cooke. After ministering in SC he went to Gwinett Co, GA in 1820 where he died in 1838. Does anyone have any info that might help? Thanks.

Re: Crowder Family
Donald R. Simpson ::DRSMP@Qwest.net 15

Cheryl, Wonderful, I've hoped to find some descendant of Anderson S. & Priscilla Crowder. I am descended from Nathaniel Simpson (d. 10 Nov., 1857, Grant Co., Ky.) & his 2nd wife, Jane (maiden surname unknown). They were my 2nd gt. grandparents. My gt. grandparents were Peter & Elizabeth (Phibbs) Simpson. Peter & Elizabeth stayed in Guilford Co., N.C., until ca. 1848 then came to southern Ky (Casey Co.) for about 12 or so years then on to northern Missouri (Gentry Co.). I don't think they ever lived in northern Ky (Grant & Pendleton) where Nathaniel & Jane lived.

I have census 1860, 70, & 80 for family of Anderson & Priscilla, but do not have any further info on their family. Also have the 1880 mortality schedule record for death of Anderson. Would like to have a good listing of their children and their spouses.

I have some questions: who was the Eliza B. Simpson, 2nd wife of Jerimiah M. Crowder, (mentioned in your message) and where & when were they married? Also, do you have any clue to the identity of the wife of Anderson Crowder of Jacobs Creek?

I have much info on the ancestry of Priscilla (Simpson) Crowder and am happy to share.

I have in years past searched some years of Guilford Court Minutes in 1830's looking for possible guardianship of Anderson S. Crowder, butfound no mention. I don't think I have searched Rockingham Court Minutes but will do so when I can get time for it. I live Salt Lake City and am in walking distance of the Mormon Church's Family History Library.

I have written several articles on our Simpsons that are published in the newsletter called "The Simpson Clan" and published in Santa Cruz, CA, by Wenonah Williams. Are you acquainted with that newsletter?

Can you tell me the deed book & page for that deed in Rockingham Co., for sale of land by the heirs of Anderson Crowder? Don S.

Archibald Campbell, mid-late 1700's
Mary L. Sanders ::kyncsanders@yahoo.com

I am looking for information on Archibald Campbell in hopes of finding out more information on my Nahum Sanders (1740-1795). Archibald Campbell was a witness to Nahum's will and went with Nahum's widow, Susannah, to prove the will at probate. While Archibald lived in SW Rockingham Co., Nahum lived in SE Stokes on Belews Creek and it is possible that they were neighbors.

Any information on Archibald Campbell would be greatly appreciated - thanks - Mary

Historical map of Rockingham Co.
Mary L. Sanders ::kyncsanders@yahoo.com

Some several years ago I had a copy of a historical 18th century map of Rockingham Co. prepared by Fred Hughes. Unfortunately, I loaned it to someone who cannot now find it and I do not know where I can obtain another one.

My interest in this map is the fact that one of the men who witnessed my Nahum Sanders will was Archibald Campbell and the Rockingham Co. map showed Archibald Campbell's property in SW Rockingham Co. near the Guilford Co. line to the South and the Stokes Co. line to the west. My Nahum Sanders (1740-1795) lived on Belews Creek in Stokes Co.

If someone knows where I might purchase one of these maps, please let me know. If these maps are no longer available, should someone have one and be willing to photocopy the SW corner of the county where Archibald Campbell's name appears, I would be very appreciative and more than happy to reimburse the expense.

Thanks - Mary .

Re: Historical map of Rockingham Co.
Elizabeth Hanks ::maryhanks@msn.com 44

Hi there. I have a map that shows landowners and land grants during the 1700's for Rockingham Co. There is no Archibald Campbell on Belews Creek but there is a William Campbell on the Dan River, just north of Belews Creek. Could this be the same family? I got my map from the Dan River Art Market located at 1122 NC Hwy 65, Wentworth, NC 27325. You can also call them at 336-349-4099. The map is called the Rockingham County North Carolina Historical Documentation Map.

Re: Historical map of Rockingham Co.
Mary L. Sanders ::kyncsanders@yahoo.com 45

Hi, Elizabeth - thanks so much! That is exactly the map I am looking for. I will call the Art Mart today!! I'm not sure about William Campbell and Archibald Campbell being kin, but there is certainly that possibility.

Archibald also had 50 acres of land in Stokes Co. and 50 acres of land in Guilford Co., so his property must have been right there on the place where these 3 counties met!

Thanks again! Mary

William Noles, late 1700s
J. Norvill Jones ::nj3568@mindspring.com

I am seeking information on William Noles or other Noles males who may have been in Rockingham County in the late 1700s or early 1800s. I am trying to locate a Noles who was married to Catherine Jones in Bute/Warren County, NC in 1776 when her married name was listed in her father's will as "Catherine Noles". Any help in identifying male Noles who may have come to Rockingham County from Bute/Warren County will be appreciated.

Smith Family
Martin Smith ::Cardinals4me@aol.com

I would be happy to communicate and share information with anyone from your county who might be related to Walter Raleigh Smith, born in 1870 in Mayodan, NC. He had several brothers who remained in NC after the family migrated to Bond County, Illinois about 1878. As you can tell from my name, this family married into the Martins of Virginia and northern NC. Thank you from Olympia, Washington.

Proctors in Rockingham County
Eldon Proctor ::Proc9610@cs.com

I am working on the theory that my ggggrandfather, Paul S. Proctor was born on 8-31-1826 in Rockingham County. The census of 1840 shows a Lucy Proctor with Children and the age would correspond with Paul Proctor as well as a Michael Proctor, census of 1830 shows a young male that would work. The census of 1840 shows a H. Marcom family near Lucy Proctor and Paul Proctor married H. Marcom's daughter later in Tenn. in 1850. Anyone having any information about this family, please email me. I would appreciate it.

Stokes Family

Calvin is said to have come from Spain and came into the U.S. around Raleigh, N.C. I was told that he took the name STOKES from a family that he was staying with. Any information will be appreciated.

William G. Mitchell ::mitchell3121@worldnet.att.net

My third great grandmother, Mary Zeigler, was born in Rockingham Co., N.C. (don't know when or exactly where, but before 1750, I think), and lived there until her marriage to John Henry Mitchell of Dinwiddie CO., VA. They had an undetermined number of children, one of whom was my ancestor, Thomas Hardaway Mitchell, born in Dinwiddie CO, VA in 1793. John Henry and Thomas Hardaway moved to Ogelthorpe CO., GA about 1800 (don't know about Mary). I am anxious to find out more about Mary Zeigler. When was she born, where, who were her parents, ancestors? Did she die in GA as John Henry did? Was she related to Sussanah Zeigler who married Joshua Tillery in Rockingham Co., and whose daughter was Ruth(ie) Tillery? Any help will be much appreciated. Bill Mitchell

"Glenn Farm" Estates near Eden, NC
Robin Willingham Moore ::RobinW.Moore@Excite.com

I'm interested in the history of Glenn Farm--as the possible home of my great-great-grandparents, Chalmers Lanier Glenn and Anna Sarah Dodge. My grandmother had told me many years ago that her uncle, Governor Robert Brodnax Glenn, had sold the Glenn "plantation" to developers following the death of his two brothers, James Dodge Glenn and Edward Travis Brodnax Glenn (my great-grandfather). And recent books transcribed by Professor Wayne Kime from journals written by my great-great-granduncle, Richard Irving Dodge, mention several letters to and from his sister, Annie, in Leaksville (now part of Eden). Is there a Glenn family cemetery within the boundaries of the original farm. I'm also interested in what property Glenn Farm was originally carved out of--as my great-great-grandfather, Chalmers, was orphaned as a small child and was raised by his maternal aunt, Janet Hamilton Chalmers, and her husband, Dr. Edward Travis Brodnax, with possible assistance from Dr. Brodnax' oldest brother, Robert Brodnax of Cascades Plantation, who was the husband of one of Chalmers' paternal grandaunts, Nannie Wilson (I know, it's confusing--plus Robert and Edward Brodnax' sister was the husband of one of Chalmers' paternal granduncles, George Wilson). Chalmers' paternal grandmother, Isabella Wilson Glenn, does not mention Chalmers in her will and I suspect that's because his inheritance came through other (that is, Wilson or Brodnax or Chalmers) channels. Any information would be appreciated.

Reuben Johnson
Mitch Warren ::mitchwarrn@aol.com

According to a letter to my gr-grandmother in 1925, her father, Reuben James Johnson, was the son of Henry Johnson, and gr-son of Reuben Johnson, the first, who lived in or near Wentworth. The older Reuben Johnson was buried in a tomb "at an old church near Wentworth", and his son Henry was buried "at Speedwell, a country church, about 6 miles from home." Can anyone give me directions to these cemeteries?

Re: Reuben Johnson
Elizabeth Hanks ::maryhanks@msn.com 75

Speedwell Church Cemetary is located on Iron Works Road. Take 158 West toward Winston Salem. About a mile outside the city limits there is a convenience store in the fork of the road. The right fork is Iron Works Road. The church and cemetary is about 3 miles down on the left. I believe there is also a church historian who may be able to answer any questions. You may want to call the pastor for information about that. I don't know about the other cemetary you inquired about. Hope this helps.

Re: Documentation
Robin Willingham Moore ::RobinW.Moore@excite.com 53

Jess - If your ancestors were Brodnaxes from the Leaksville (now Eden) area, I'll be glad to share information and sources with you. There were four different marriages between my Wilson/Glenn aunts and uncles and the Brodnaxes who settled Cascade Plantation and Willow Oaks Farm near Leaksville in Rockingham County.

Re: "Glenn Farm" Estates near Eden, NC
M.E. Perdue ::history65@msn.com 74

Yes, you are correct that Chalmers Lanier Glenn did live at Sauratown Plantation but is not buired there. He was killed at the battle of South Mountain, MD in 1862 and is buried there. The history of the plantation was published in and an 1983 issue of the Journal of Rockingham County History and Genealogy. Copies of this issue can be purchased for $2.75 postpaid from the Rockingham County Historical Society, P.O. Box 84, Wentworth, NC 27375. I have other family information if interested.

Re: Reuben Johnson
M.E. Perdue ::history65@msn.com 76

Reuben Johnson is buried in a family cemetery on Almond Road in Simpsonville Township in southern Rockingham County. Property is owned by Mrs. Bettie Jones. Only one marked grave is there as follows (RECORDING WAS MADE IN 1980):

Reuben Johnson, died 25 Jul. 1856, age 86y, 2 ms, 10ds.

There are a few Johnsons buried at Speedwell Church but Henry, if he is there, does not have a marked grave. The ones listed there are Francis, Katherine, Mary Scott, Mary Turner and Polly. The Speedwell historian died three years ago and there are few, if any, members there today who are familiar with the older families in the area. For more information you might contact the Rockingham County Historical Society, P.O. Box 84, Wentworth, NC 27375.

Many thanks to Elizabeth Hanks and M. E. Perdue for your prompt and very helpful information. I only recently learned that Henry and Reuben Johnson are my 3rd and 4th-great grandfathers, and that they had lived in Rockingham County. My Warren ancestors are from Halifax County, Virginia, which is probably within 50 miles of Wentworth. I live in Nashville, Tennessee, but the next time I head for Halifax County I will certainly spend some time in Rockingham County.

Am trying to prove that the James and Margaret Dobbins, found in Caldwell Co Ky in 1797 is James and Margaret McElroy Dobbins, who were married in Rockingham Co NC, in 1792. Thank you. Jim

Greenberry & Frances Q. Holderby Wilson family
Joy Q. Gallagher ::gallagherj@cafes.net

Below are three sketches about the ancestry of Joseph D. Wilson who died and is buried in Winchester, Franklin Co., TN. He was a son of Greenberry Wilson and wife Frances Q. Holderby who were married February 6, 1817 in Rockingham Co., NC and were the parents of 12 children. Greenberry Wilson was a son of Jesse Wilson and wife Sally LeGrand. Frances Q. Holderby was a daughter of Joseph Holderby and wife Lucy Broaddus. Notice these family names in the children of Joseph D. Wilson in the accompanying sketches. Would like to find a researcher who knows the names of the other 11 children of Greenberry Wilson and wife Frances Q. Holderby. Some of the above names and dates were found at familysearch.org.

Ancestry of Confederate Soldier Joseph D. Wilson

Soldier Wilson's sketch in Goodspeed's History of Franklin County, Tennessee, published 1886:

JOSEPH D. WILSON, of the firm of Wilson & Francis, general merchants, was born in Pittsylvania County, Va., May 20, 1824. The father, Green B. Wilson, was a farmer by occupation, and in 1848 removed to Henry County, Tenn., where he died in 1866. The mother, nee Frances Q. Holderby, survived the father, and departed this life in 1874. Joseph D. was reared on a farm, and remained with his parents till after coming to Henry County, Tenn. He received but a limited early education. In Henry County he engaged in farming and in the tobacco business till 1885, when he removed to Winchester and engaged in his present trade in February of that year. He has been successful, and carries a stock of about $8,000. He chose as his helpmeet, Miss Annie E. Cox, the matrimonial ceremony being solemnized October 29, 1868. This union has been blessed in the birth of eight children, one of whom died in infancy. The others are Annie Q., Hunter L., Ruth A., Asa B., Lydia M., Flora D., and Hoyland L. Mr. Wilson, his wife, and three children, are members of the Baptist Church. Politically, Mr. Wilson is a firm Democrat, and always has been. He is an enterprising and respected citizen of the county.

Soldier Wilson's sketch in Volume VIII, Confederate Military History, published in Atlanta, Georgia, 1899:

Colonel Joseph D. Wilson, of Winchester, is a native of Pittsylvania County, Va., born in 1824, son of Greenberry Wilson, and grandson of Jesse Wilson, a native of Maryland. Removing to Tennessee in early manhood, he engaged in the manufacture of tobacco until October, 1861, when he enlisted as a private in Captain Weldon's company of the Forty-sixth regiment, Tennessee infantry, Col. John M. Clark. He was in the garrison of Island No. 10, during the bombardment, and after the abandonment of New Madrid was surrendered with the forces under General Mackall, April 8, 1862. As a prisoner of war he was held at Johnson's Island and Camp Chase, Ohio, until exchanged at Vicksburg in August. The regiment was then reorganized at Jackson, Miss., and he was elected major. In this rank he was attached to S.B. Maxey's brigade at Port Hudson under fire of Farragut's fleet, and with Gen. J.E. Johnston in his Mississippi campaign against Grant, including the siege of Jackson, and subsequently was on duty at Mobile, under the brigade command of General Quarles, until just after the battle of Chickamauga, when they joined the army under General Bragg at Missionary Ridge. After spending the winter at Dalton, Quarles' brigade was sent back to Mobile, but was recalled in time to participate in the Atlanta campaign, and won great distinction at New Hope Church, Kennesaw [also spelled Kenesaw] Mountain and the battles around Atlanta. Wilson, having been promoted to lieutenant-colonel, was in command of his regiment at Atlanta until the battle of Ezra Church, July 28, 1864, when he was shot through the body near the enemy's works and taken prisoner. He was reported killed, and General Quarles, as is noted on another page of this volume, paid an eloquent eulogium to his virtues as a man and soldier. He lay in the Federal hospital at Marietta until convalescent, and was subsequently a prisoner at Johnson's Island until July 26, 1865. After his return to Tennessee, he was a merchant and farmer near Paris, until 1882, when he retired from business, and made his home at Winchester. The wife of Colonel Wilson, who died in 1892 [tombstone has 1894], was the daughter of Rev. Asa Cox, a Baptist minister and Confederate soldier. Their children are Hunter LeGrand, of Austin, Texas; Asa Broadus, an attorney at Paris; Anna, wife of Emmet [sic] Cooper, of Winchester; Lydia, Flora, and Hoyland Lee.

Soldier Wilson's obituary in Volume 19, May 1911, Confederate Veteran Magazine:

Joseph D. Wilson, who was born in Pittsylvania County, Va., near Danville, May 20, 1824, was the fifth of twelve children born to Greenberry and Frances Holderby Wilson, who were married in Virginia in 1798 [sic, believe this should be married in Rockingham Co., NC Feb. 6, 1817]. His grandfather, Jesse Wilson, a Marylander, was in the Revolutionary War.

In his early manhood the family removed to West Tennessee, where he engaged in the manufacture of tobacco and in the mercantile business until the breaking out of the Civil War. He enlisted as a private in Captain Weldon's company of the 46th Tennessee Infantry, under the command of Col. John M. Clark. He was in the garrison of Island No. 10 during the bombardment, and after the abandonment of New Madrid surrendered with the forces under General McCall April 8, 1862.

He was held as a prisoner at Johnson's Island and Camp Chase, Ohio, until exchanged at Vicksburg in August. The regiment was then reorganized at Jackson, Miss., and he was elected major. In this rank he was attached to S.B. Maxey's brigade at Port Hudson, under fire of Farragut's fleet, and was with Gen. J.E. Johnston in his Mississippi campaign against Grant, including the siege of Jackson. Subsequently he was on duty at Mobile under the brigade command of General Quarles until just after the battle of Chickamauga, when they joined Bragg's army at Missionary Ridge.

After spending the winter at Dalton, Quarles's Brigade was sent back to Mobile, but was recalled in time to participate in the Atlanta campaign, and won special distinction at New Hope Church, on Kennesaw Mountain, and in the battles around Atlanta.

Major Wilson was promoted to lieutenant colonel, and was in command of his regiment at Atlanta until the battle of Ezra Church, July 28, 1864, when he was shot through the body near the enemy's works and taken prisoner. The "Official Records of the War of the Rebellion" contains an official document of General Quarles to the effect that Colonel Wilson was killed, stating: "Among the killed of Quarles's Brigade was Col. John R. White, of the 53d Tennessee. Major Richardson, who succeeded to the command, was mortally wounded, and the gallant Col. Joseph D. Wilson was desperately wounded and by the brigade commander reported killed. They fell in front of their regiments, leading them on the enemy's works. Truer and more earnest patriots never lived, and the purity of their private characters gracefully softened the ruder qualities of the soldier."

Colonel Wilson lay in the Federal prison at Marietta for a short time, and was then removed to Johnson's Island, where he remained a prisoner until July 26, 1865.

In 1868 Colonel Wilson was married to Miss Annie E. Cox, daughter of Rev. Asa Cox, a Baptist minister and Confederate soldier, at Paris, Tenn. He made his home at Buchanan, near Paris, where he engaged in the tobacco, cotton, and mercantile business. He sold out here in 1884 and removed to Winchester, Tenn., where he engaged in mercantile business, from which he retired in 1892.

Eight children were born to Colonel Wilson and his wife--four sons and four daughters--all of whom survive except a son and a daughter. He was an extensive observer and reader, especially after his retirement from business. He was a man of deep and positive convictions, but never gave offense to those who differed with him in their opinions. His manners and habits were of the simplest and most modest character. As a devoted and faithful member of the Church, he was sustained by an unfaltering faith. His death occurred on February 21, 1911.

Your help is need to solve the following mystery!

(Rockingham County, NC) Eliza Hale a resident of The Rockingham County Home died in 1926 and was buried in the home’s cemetery in Wentworth, NC. The stone is deteriorated and old, but still standing and readable. On file at the Wentworth Courthouse is her death certificate listing the following information. Place of Birth: Franklin County, VA Cause: Sudden Death Father: Francis Marion Hale Mother: Nancy Leffew

(Franklin County, VA) My grandfather Samuel Henry Hale Date of Birth: April 1860 Place: Franklin Co., VA Father: Francis Marion Hale Mother: Nancy Leffew Note: Samuel married Missouri A. Jones in Franklin County, VA in 1895 and they had three children. My father James Frank, Lillie Florence and Hattie. Missouri died in 1905 and sometimes after 1910 Samuel along with the three children moved to Rockingham County. His brother William J. and his family also moved here. Samuel died in 1929 was was buried at Happy Home Church Cemetery. (No sign of grave has been located)

Census of 1920 for Rockingham County shows Samuel living with the three children plus his widowed sister whose name is given as Angelina Hale.

The census of 1860 for Franklin County, VA show only two girls born to Francis and Nancy. (1) Frances P. Hale who married a James Janney (2) Louisa Hale who married a Robert Davis. Therein lies the mystery. Who were Eliza and Angelina.

I’m close to finishing out my family history and having it published but until I get this solved It will remain incomplete. Please help me solve this mystery.

Re: All Hale researchers NC, and VA
Audrey Goforth Johnson ::audreyj@inetone.net 96

I am a dec. of Thomas Leffew and his first wife Elizabeth Perdue. Was this Nancy a dau. of Thomas and Elizabeth? Am also a dec of John W. Jones Through his son John Wilson Jones and wife Eliza Oakley from Rockingham Co. NC and Franklin Co VA. Do you have a Sparrell Hale in your records? A very early Perdue lady (Edie) married an Edward Hale. Edie was daughter of William amnd Morning Hale of Chesterfield Co and was a sister to one of my great gf's who married 1775 Eleanor Dillon. A lot of the Hales came on here to Mercer County WV where they became very successful people. My grandmother's sister, Christina Perdue also mrried a Hale from Franklin County. His name escapes me at present, but if you need, I will look in my records for you. Another child of William and Morning was Hale Perdue who went to and died in TN. Audrey G.

Posted By: winnie Date: Wednesday, 2 January 2002, at 9:09 p.m.

I am searching for info concerning Augustine Lee who married Rachel Nickols in 1821 of march, in Rockingham Co., N.C. His father and mother were suppose to be Wm. Hezekiah and Chloe Lea Lee. Her parents were Jezekiah or James Nickols. The Nickols and the Lees had farms joining each other in 1920. If someone out there has info on these families, would you please contact us. We made one trip over there for one day research and found several land deals with Hezekiah and Augustine's wedding certificate. Willouby Lee also was a witness or something on the Sale of Hezekiah Lee's estate. Hezekiah must have been a bad boy, since they sold his eatate to pay off two bar bills he owed when the notes came due. Would appreciate any help I could get and will send you any info I have regarding Augustine and Rachel Lee. ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Re: Rockingham Co. Alms House
M. Perdue ::history65@msn.com 176

The Rockingham County Home for the Aged and Infirm (aka County Home or Poor House) dates back to the late 1820s when one was established on the eastern outskirts of Wentworth,the county seat. The last County Home closed there in 1955. The main building built in the early 20th century still stands and is used for county offices. Practically all records of the County Home were destroyed at the order of county officials. The County Home Cemetery at the intersection of NC Highway 65 and County Home Road contains the graves of at least a few hundred patients- though most are unmarked. The county gives little maintenance to the cemetery. A display board at the site lists the names of those who have actual gravestones in the cemetery (all since 1900) and those recorded burials at the home between 1913 and 1955. ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Stone surname
Rebecca Ballard ::ballard@northerntel.net

Hello. My gr-gr-gr grandfather William Stone was born 14 Dec 1825 Decatur City, Decatur, IN. The 1850 US Census has Abner, age 4, with William and his wife Rosannah. We know that this child died as a child. William's parents are listed as being born in North Carolina. William's son George Robert (my gr-gr grandfather) was born in Bartholomew County IN 28 May 1857. In the 1850 US Census for Bartholomew County IN there is Abner Stone age 55, wife Deniza 32, George W. age 16, and James age 13. This Abner was born in North Carolina (wife in IN- perhaps second wife). In the 1820 US Census for Rockingham County, there is an Abner Stone- 1 male 16-26, 2 females under 10, 1 female 16-26. He was engaged in agriculture. I suspect this Abner, born in NC, is our William's father. Please if anyone has any information on this, please email me or reply to this message. Thank you very much. Rebecca. ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Memory Ward [married William Ward]; Richard Laramore [married Rachel ______]; Mary Strader [married ______ Strader]; Caty Milby [married John Milby]; Philip Laramore [married Martha Bloyd]; James Laramore [married _____, then Patsy Benningfield].

After his death, his widow and children moved to Green County, Kentucky. Family lore states that the Larimores came from Maryland.

Chapman in Rockingham Co 1785 to 1820's
Darryl Chapman ::acso0397@bellsouth.net

I am researching the Chapman Families in Rockingham County, NC. The first possible existence, that I know of, was in 1789. There are two William Chapman and a Robert Chapman. One deed is supposed to be William Sr selling land to William Jr.that Sr obtained from John Mount. This was one hundred acres "on the waters of Lick Fork and Hogan's Creek." I am looking for any possible ties, where to obtain copies of the deeds of these individuals, or where ANY Chapman appears in Rockingham County, NC before 1830's. I am also wanting to know where the 100 acres would be today.I noticed on the Rockingham genweb site there are not anything about Chapmans. I believe they migrated from Pittsylvania,VA and other counties there to Rockingham and then over to the counties of Hawkins, Claiborne, Greene, Knox, Anderson, Blount, and Campbell County, TN. Please contact me if you have any knowledge or beliefs considering these Chapman.

Grogansville dates back to the first half of the nineteenth century and was located near the present settlement of Price, NC in Price Township of Rockingham County. This area is in northwestern Rockingham County just below the Virginia State Line along the corridor of US 220. There were of course a number of Grogan family members residing in this area at that time. Grogansville no longer exists as a community. A Methodist Church was active there in the mid and late nineteenth century and was the forerunner of what is now Price United Methodist Church.

Linda Dunn ::ljdunn@sff.net Genealogy records for Carter, Hendrix, and Means http://www.lindajdunn.com/genealogy.html

I am seeking information regarding my ancestors and any descendants who might still live in this area.

Robert Means was born 1735 in Basking Ridge, Somerset, New Jersey and died 1822 in Rockingham Co., North Carolina. Robert married Elizabeth Roberston.

Their son, William, married Susan Joyce, daughter of Elijah Joyce and Elizabeth Allen (daughter of Valentine Allen).

Their son, Robert, married Mary Polly Smith, daughter of Drury Smith.

William's son, Fountain, married Lettie Edwards (parents unknown).

James' son, William, married Morning Belton and both of them are now allegedly buried in the Joyce Cemetery in Shelby County, Indiana.

I'm in Indiana. I'm hoping to put together a sufficient amount of records to publish a small, family book in a couple of years.

For possible DAR membership, I need to find a picture of William's and his wife's tombstone, birth certificates, land reccords, or other acceptable proof of their existence.

In an effort to avoid re-inventing the wheel, I'm posting here in hopes that someone might have already gathered this information. If not, I think I'm going to need to gather sufficient funds for a trip to Rockingham County from Indiana. It would help if I could find out where some things are located before traveling there.

Andrews of Spray
Brenda Trent Dillon ::dillon1bt@aol.com

My mother, Lenora Andrews Trent, died in July of this year. I have been trying unsuccessfully to find out what happened to one of her half-sisters, FLORA ANDREWS. My grandmother was Callie Cheek Andrews. She married my grandfather, Manuel Whitfield Andrews around 1920. His first wife had died and left him with Flora, Margaret (who died several years ago), and Bill (who is bedridden and living in Eden). My grandmother raised the three children and the five children she and Manuel had: my mother - Edith Lenora, Annette, Mildred, Ethel (who has died of cancer), and Frank. According to the 1930 census, Flora was still living with the family in Spray in the Flint Hill area. Manuel worked in the mill until he contracted tuberculosis. He died before I was born in 1943. I have been able to trace my ancestors back to the mid 1770's in the TRENT and CHEEK lines, and to the early 1800's in the ANDREWS lines. However, no one in the family seems to have any idea where Flora might be - or even if she is alive. Does anyone out there have any information at all about her - or about any other member of the family? I would love to hear from you and perhaps share information. Thanks.

Re: Co Newspaper
M.E. Perdue ::history65@msn.com 321

Unfortunately there is not one Rockingham County newspaper. There are three papers today: the Reidsville Review, published since 1888, the Madison Messenger, published since ca. 1915 and the Eden Daily News, published since ca. 1923. These papers focus mostly on news of their own respective towns but the Review has had a longer tradition of carrying more county-wide news. Most, but not all, issues of these papers are on microfilm and can be found in the various branches of the county library or at Rockingham Community College. All three papers are now owned by the same company and a possible merger of the three has been rumored for the past several years.

1929 Luten Bridge Co.
Meg Gilmartin ::mgilmartin@scapatapesna.com

I am a first year law student who just finished reading a case about a bridge built in 1929 in your county. Not site how many other crazy law students there are out there that may have e-mailed over the years about this but Law Professors love to collect memorabilia about their favorite cases and my contracts professor is no exception. But anyhow here is the scoop on this case if there is any way to identify it from this: In 1929 a company called the Luten Bridge Co. got a contract to build a bridge in Rockingham County NC and then it was rescinded by the County Commission due to some politics. Luten went ahead and built it anyhow and was hoping to get paid. So the picture we all have in our heads is of a bridge in the middle of a forest with no road going to it. We have no idea if it is still there or if the road may have been built. Apparently every year this professor asks if there is anyone from NC in the class hoping to find out more. We are in Massachusetts. It would be great to be able to fill in the gap for next years class...any idea of where this bridge might be or where I could get a picture would make some law students and their professor very happy! Thanks.

FROM THE BOOK A TALE OF THREE CITIES Eden's Heritage: A Pictorial Survey of Leaksville, Spray, and Draper written and photographed by Claudia Roberts Brown, and published by the Eden Historic Properties Commission, 1986.

Stone Piers In Tackett Branch behind 410 Church Street, early 1910s. These two large piers of rough-cut stone blocks stand as reminders of B. Frank Mebane's role as Spray's promoter. They date from the early 1910's....

He first tried to get a paved road parallel to Tackett Branch from Spray northwest to Ridgeway Road in order to divert traffic from Leaksville. Local historians believe these piers may have been a ruse to get a paved road via The Boulevard to Ridgeway Road or to pressure the county into building a more substantial bridge over Tackett Branch into Spray. (In 1924, Mebane did succeed in persuading the county commissioners to build the controversial Fishing Creek Bridge across the Dan River on his land, even though no road existed at the site and the N.C. 87 bridge had been constructed the previous year just one mile west. The contractor became involved in suits with the county and state over payments for the bridge which continued until 1939. In 1935 a dirt road was built to one end of the bridge, which was too narrow for two-way traffic.)

Wm. W. Mangum/Lula P. McKenney Marriage
Cecil Stainback ::chevy402mc@aol.com

I'm in the process of researching my wife's family (Mangum). I know her grand parents were William Wesley Mangum, supposedly from the town of Pelham in Caswell Co., and Lula Parthenia McKenney. Per my mother-in-law, they were married in Mayfield, NC at Lula's parents home. As of this date I have not been able to verify this. Was hoping someone could help with this matter.

I like to thank you in advance.

Claren Carrell ::clarencarrell@hotmail.com

On the 1850 KY Census My Edward Carrell/Carroll was listed as being 49 and born in North Carolina. He had possibly 3 children born in North Carolina between 1827-1833 (Rebecca, Thomas and John). Then between 1834-1858 he had eight more children born in Kentucky, before he died in 1866. His first wife may have been Nancy but his last wife was Nancy Spurling for sure. If any one can help me get more information on my Edward Carrell/Carroll and his family I would appreciate it. Thanks, Claren Carrell, Tulsa, OK -

*****The Nicholas LENALL and Maja LEMONDS are:*****

Nicholas SMALL and Margry/Margy LEMONDS, proven by the James Nicholas SMALL BIBLE.

****Rawley LYBASS and Julia Ann PASCALL**** It is possible that Julia Ann was a widow, the reason for two different surnames. I believe, but have not proven, that her full name was Julia Ann THOMAS PASCALL.

(Nathaniel and Martha were both found as being single and living with their parents in the 1850 Census. Their first child James Alvis SMALL, my grandfather, was born 15 March 1852. I am saying that this marriage date would be 1851)***

Those children were Pleasant1840, Matilda 1841, Delilah 1843 and Henrietta 1845.

Does anyone have access to obits from local papers or wills for the following two men, or is anyone searching these families.

1. Daniel COFFEE, b. 1806 in Rockingham Co., N.C., Mar (1) Manerva CARDWELL (2) Nancy GIPSON. He had three children with Manerva before she died C. 1835: James B 1829, Nancy (KINNER, KINSER) B 27 DEc. 1832 and Robert B 1833. Nancy, Mar Josiah Washington BROWN in Athens in 1862 after his first wife died in 1860. I need Daniel's parents and Manerva's mother's name. Her father was Gabriel. Daniel moved his big family to McMinn county about 1846where he and Nancy had 7 more children.

2.Josiah Washington BROWN B. 14 Sep 1821 in Knox CO., TN. Mar (1), Martha WEAR in 1841and (2) Nancy (KINNER, KINSER )COFFEE in 1862. I need Josiah's parents, Nancy's middle name. I have always thought that Josiah's father was James and his mother was Martha CHAPPELL, but since there was another family in Western TN. (Obion Co.,) with the same names and approximate dates who had a George WAshington BROWN B. about the same time, I have ruled that out. There was a letter in the Athens library several years ago under the BROWN file that stated George and Josiah were the same man. That isn't true since Josiah was an early settler in McMinn County and owned extensive lands along the Hiawassee River. These two family are connected to the WALKER and HUTSELL families.

Anyone with any help on these two problems of mine I would be most grateful to hear from you. Thank you.

In 1856, William CONNOR acting as executor for the estate of Charles MOORE, deceased, brought to the Rockingham County Court of Equity the case of "William CONNOR versus Pearson MOORE and Others." Charles MOORE had died in 1825, his widow lived for many more years to a time just prior to the filing of this suit. The terms of Charles MOORE's Will was that certain property would go after his death of his widow to the "METHODISTS CONFERENCE of LOCAL PREACHERS." At that time, each Methodist church in the region was autonomous and no broad general organization existed. Neither, apparently did the one which Charles had specified to benefit from his estate. Since his brothers named as his heirs, had many descendants by the time of the widow Tabitha's death, the entire matter was placed in the hands of the court for equitable distribution of the property. The suit came before the court on several different occasions, beginning in 1856 and continuing into 1857. The first hearing resulted in an order to William CONNOR as executor to have the land left by Charles surveyed and sold. It also recorded testimony that Nathan MOORE, John MOORE, the heirs of Henry MOORE, James MOORE and Levin MOORE, all children of John MOORE deceased were not residents of the state. Nor were Mitchell MOORE, heir at law of Thomas MOORE, deceased: the heirs of David MOORE, or the heirs of Rebecca LOWE. Another hearing recorded that William CONNOR had died and that Pleasant HOPKINS, as his executor, would carry on in his stead. Further Pearson MOORE had also died. Not all of the heirs of Charles MOORE had been ascertained, and so the case was continued. The final hearing noted that the Methodist Conference of Local Preachers had failed to appear to make any claims, and apparently did not exist. Therefore, the entire estate would be divided among the heirs of Charles MOORE, which were his brothers and their heirs. Named were the "descendents of John MOORE, Samuel MOORE and Thomas MOORE who were brothers of the testator."

Heirs named in the Equity Suit of Rev. Charles MOORE of Rockingham County, NC. 1856-57

John MOORE left the following heirs: John MOORE, Nathan MOORE, Henry MOORE, James MOORE, Isaac MOORE, Levin MOORE, Peter MOORE, Thomas MOORE, Rebecca MOORE LOWE who married David LOWE, and Nancy MOORE WHITSETT who married James WHITSETT. Rebecca LOWE had died leaving son John LOWE: Mary MOORE had married Pinckney MOORE and was dead leaving children whose names were unknown. Nancy WHITSETT was also dead, leaving these heirs: Nancy McGIBBONY, wife of John McGIBBONY; James WHITSETT, Alfred WHITSETT, and Sarah WHITSETT representing their father Nathan WHITSETT; William McMICHAEL, Rhoda MCMICHAEL, Nancy McMICHAEL, Elizabeth McMICHAEL, and Margaret McMICHAEL representing their mother Eliza McMICHAEL, late wife of Obediah McMICHAEL; Pinckney WALL, Mary WALL SHAW, wife of Levi SHAW, and Permelia/Amelia WALL CARTER, wife of Yancey CARTER representing their mother Permelia/Emily WALL deceased. Samuel MOORE had left these heirs at law:

Wilson D. MOORE, David MOORE, Julia MOORE, and Rosanna MOORE representing their deceased father Samuel MOORE. William WALKER, Ellason, WALKER, Emily WALKER, and Rachel WALKER representing Samuel's deceased daughter Sally WALKER: Green REED, Hannah REED, Zalin REED, and George REED representing their deceased mother Rachel REED: James W. MOORE, Enock MOORE, Pleasant MOORE, Ada MOORE, and Rachel MOORE representing their deceased father Enock MOORE: William G. MOORE, and John K. MOORE representing their deceased father John MOORE; Williamson M. LANDRETH and McKinly LANDRETH representing their deceased mother Elizabeth LANDRETH; and Pearson MOORE deceased whose estate was in probate.

Thomas MOORE left the following heirs at law: Smith MOORE, Thomas MOORE, Betsy MOORE HENRY, wife of John HENRY; Dolly MOORE HENRY, wife of Richard HENRY, and Lily MOORE REEVES, wife of Elijah REEVES.

Two of the sons of John MOORE, Nathan and John (2) had sold their interests in the estate as they did not live in North Carolina.

I am searching for information regarding my grandmother, who I think was born Pearl Virginia Cox in Reidsville area around 1897. Her parents died when she was young. At that point she was raised by a family named Crews in the Kernersville/Oak Ridge area. Around 1918 she married my grandfather, L. C. Jones and lived with him in Walkertown NC until her death in 2000.

ARe there any restrictions about hunting (with rifles) in residential neighborhoods in the county? We live in a small residental community (Spring Lake Farms) with two ponds. Several folks show up (with permission of one homeowner) to shoot the geese on the pond. There are many children and domestic animals in the vicinity of the pond. We as adults also are concerned for our safety when sitting out of doors. Are there restrictions or is this allowed? If it is not allowed, what do we need to do to prevent further episodes?

Hello, I am researching Green T. Simpson born 1795 in Va. and died in Gentry county, Indiana. He married Hannah Edlaman (Note Edlaman is spelt many different ways) in 1822 in Harrison county, Kentucky. They moved to Henry County, Indiana and had all their kids there except the first one, Lousia C. Simpson. But between the year 1870 and 1878, they moved with their married kids to Gentry County, Missouri. Green T. Simpson died in 1878 . He is buried in Nodaway county, Missouri because it used to be Gentry county, Missouri when he died. They changed the boundaries. Can you tell me anything? Lisa

THOMAS family 1700s 1800s
Marilyn ::GNEOLOG@aol.com no IP_ADDRESS dialup- PREVIOUS>

I am trying to figure out which of the Thomas family in early Guilford/Rockingham County, NC belong to me --- I know lots of luck, huh. Anyway, I need to know if anyone knows anything about the division of land from large acreage to numbered lots or where I might get this info.

I have these original deeds for John Thomas. 11-10-1778 Warrant North Carolina Guilford Co., NC DB 2/90 # 523 to John Thomas, 640 acres on head of Whetstone Creek. Joining his own land Grant # 202 issued 11/13/1779 (Note: Date of Warrant versus date of grant. This was the FIRST Warrant found for this family.

11-21-1778 Warrant North Carolina Guilford Co., NC DB 2/319 # 708 John Thomas for 100 acres on both sides of Tomlins Branch joining his own land on the North Grant # 522 issued October 22, 1782. Adj. John Gann and Michael Thomas

11-13-1779 Grant North Carolina Guilford Co., NC DB 2 /74 # 112 to John Thomas, 640 acres on both sides of Sharps Creek of the Dan River

So as far as the info that I have, John Thomas owned 1380 acres of land -- even though History book blurb says 1580 acres

I can account for most of this land leaving a balance of between 374 -530 unaccounted for

Now to my question: the estate of Lewis Thomas was settled in 1817 with his land left in Lots# 1 - 12 to his descendants. What size were lots and how many acres would 12 lots represent. Wish I had more info to help but that is all that I recieved other than the file box number for his estate at the State library

Any and all help appreciated. Take care. Marilyn

Lisa, Peter & Elizabeth Simpson of the 1870 census Gentry Co., MO, are my gt grandparents. They lived in the northern part of Gentry County and were not related to the Simpsons who lived in the southern part of Gentry County. In the newsletter titled "The Simpson Clan" published by Wenona Williams (see www.nonawilliams.com)in vol. 8, no. 2, fall, 1992, was a listing for your Green T. & Hannah Simpson sent by Vickie Houston, St. Joseph, MO. In it she said that Green died 8 June, 1878, in DeKalb Co., MO. Dekalb adjoins Gentry Co. on the south. Both Gentry and DeKalb were formed in 1845 from Clinton County. Nodaway was never part of Gentry County, but was also formed in 1845 from Andrew County. -

I live in Ohio and am trying to ancestry of my great great grandfather. Most clues point to Irisburg, Henry Co. VA., Montgomery Co., VA , Rockingham Col, N.C. and Stokes, Co., NC

So far I can only trace back to my gg grandfather Edward Lafayette Mabes, Sr. born abt 1798-1809 (also listed sometimes as Edmund or Edmond Lafayette Mabes, Sr.) I am trying to find out where he was born and who his parents were. I do know some of his children were born in Henry Co. and his second wife is buried in Henry Co.

Census records for his son Edward list parents as born in VA. Family notes indicated he had a brother named Reuben but I can't confirm that. I have spent hundreds of hours online trying to find Edward Lafayette Mabes, Sr. and his ancestry but have come to a brick wall.

Any information or suggestions on how to proceed greatly appreciated Nancy Mabes Kellar 288 S. Granger St. Granville, OH 43023

Email: goudykellar@alltel.net _________________________________________________________________________

I have collected these records in my research:

E L Sr. married Elizabeth (Mary) Travis Feb. 18, 1822 in Pittsylvania VA, near Henry Co. and then EL Sr married Lucinda Roach 1809, supposed to be buried in Boxwood Cemetery, Henry Co,. married in either Henry Co., VA or Rockingham Co NC Aug. 23, 1843

Edward and Lucinda's children were:

1. Edward Lafayette, Jr. b. 1834 Irisburg Henry Co VA --MY GREAT GRANDFATHER, died Nov 11, 1912 in Spray Rockingham, NC, buried in Woodland Cemetery, Madison, Rockingham, NC son of EL Sr. and Lucinda Roach.

2. Mary Jane b. abt 1835, d. abt 1916

3. Sarah for Sallie b. 1837 ?

4. Lucinda Grace "Milly" b. abt. 1840 , d. Axton, Henry Co.

5. Caroline b. 1842-1846 Henry Co. d. abt 1914

6. John b. abt 1844, d.1869 Henry Co. see burial below in Rank Isley Cemetery (formerly Pankey Cemetery) Rt. 650, Irisburg Rd.

Lucinda Mabes shows up on 1860 & 1870 Henry Co. census with some of their children, their sons Edward, my great grandfather is on 1860 Henry Co. census, and possible brother Reuben is on 1860 and 1880 census. (See below)

Spencer Martin d1795
Jeff Martin ::deacon@hotmail.com

Hi. I saw the following posting on a Davidson County message board regarding a direct ancestor of mine. Anyone know where "loose papers of Rockingham County" live? Is anyone familiar with this Martin line? Thanks in advance.


++++++++ I'm pasting in a transcript of a settlement paper from the estate papers folder for James Martin. These papers and his will are available in the NC State Archives in Raleigh. James was married as an old man (72) to the 19 year old Mary Regina Fuller. His marriage license gives Spencer Martin as his father. I can find a Spencer Martin in Rockingham county in 1790 and in loose papers of Rockingham county I can find where he was arrested, tried and hung for horse theft in 1795. My assumption is that he is the father of James but I have never been able to find any information to prove that.

Confusion about Two Joseph Williamses of colonial SurryCo.
Joan L Wrenn ::Hdanw@aol.com

Dear Researchers of Surry Co., and Rockingham Co.particularly the early years.

I need your help in sorting out these two contemporary Joseph Williamses--but probably of different generations.

My research over a few decades indicates that there may have been two Joseph Williamses in Revolutionary and post-Revolutionary Surry Co. and there may be confusion about labeling these two men in some of the published abstracts of Surry Co., NC. I have not had an opportunity to read the film of the original records.

Can anyone on the list give me a hand in sorting out these two Joseph Williamses?

There was an older Joseph Williams (wife Henrietta Jouett) who was for many years a county official in colonial Lunenburg Co., VA. He reportedly was born ca 1720 in Virginia and died testate in Elbert Co., GA ....... He had two known sons, both identified in his Elbert Co., GA will. The sons of this Joseph Williams were Rev John Williams of Meherrin Baptist Church (southside VA) and possibly other Baptist churches in Southside Virginia and Matthew Jouett Williams. This Joseph Williams was reportedly one of four sons of John Williams (the probable immigrant ancestor) who died intestate ca 1735 in Hanover Co., VA.

There was another Joseph Williams in Surry Co., sometimes called Col. Joseph Williams, reportedly the son of a Nathaniel Williams, probably of Hanover Co., VA. Little is known of this alleged father Nathaniel Williams, who reportedly is another son of the above-named John Williams (immigrant ancestor) of colonial Hanover Co. This Joseph Williams was reportedly born 1748 and died ca 11 Oct 1827 in Surry Co.,NC. He was married to Rebecca Lanier ca Sep 1772 in Granville Co. NC.

(To confuse matters more, Rebecca's sister, Sarah Lanier married still another Joseph Williams, but I am not confused about that Joseph Williams, son of Daniel Williams of Granville Co., NC. This poor Joseph died young but testate, and his widow Sarah now Williams married Robert Williams later of Pittsylvania Co., NC, supposedly another son of the elusive Nathaniel Williams.)

I am confused by these abstracts from the Surry Co. will book 2. and I am wondering whether the author confused the two contemporary Joseph Williamses. It is believed that the younger Joseph Williams, sometimes called Colonel, was partners in the mercantile business with his brother-in-law Robert Lanier.

Abstracts of Surry Co. Will Book are as follows:

[Will Bk] 2:140. 24 Sept. 1779. Agreement between Robert Lanier & Joseph Williams to dissolve partnership of Lanier & Williams, merchts. No rec. date. See next entry.

[WB] 2:141. 10 Dec 1787. Joseph Williams the elder (on his removal from VA to GA) appeared before Wm Thornton, Justice of Surry, to prove agreement above. Rec Feb. Ct. 1789.

(Abstracts from Jo White Linn, Surry County, North Carolina, Wills 1771-1827 [Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1992], p. 84)

I can see how one might confuse two Joseph Williamses, since these documents were adjacent to one another, as abstracted, in Will Book 2.

Now the fact that in the second abstract, Joseph Williams is called the elder and that he is removing to Georgia causes me to believe he is the paternal uncle of the second younger Joseph Williams who is said to have died in Surry Co., NC in 1827.

To further my argument that the elder Joseph Williams was probably the uncle of the younger Joseph Williams, there were some land entries in 1779 by one of the sons of the elder Joseph Williams.

1340. Matthew Jouett Williams enters 200 acres of land in Surry Co. on the waters of Deep Creek adjoining Bruce's entry and adjoining Kimborough's former deed land - February 7, 1779. [Warrant granted]

1341. Matthew Jouett Williams enters 100 acres of land in Surry Co. on the waters of Deep Creek between Skidmore and Bruce's entry and adjoining Kimborough's former deed land - February 7, 1779. [Warrant granted]

There was another entry of the same date, and the warrant was granted but the entry was withdrawn and the money refunded, note the authors.

A Joseph Williams entered land on the same date, but unless one knows the geography of the county, it is unlikely one can determine which Joseph Williams may have entered the land.

(Agnes M. Wells, Virginia G. Phillips, Carol J. Leonard, Joseph Winston His Entry Book, Surry County, North Carolina Land Entries, 1778-1781 [Mt. Airy, NC, 1987], p. 117)

Later on April 10, 1779, Matthew Jouett Williams again entered 200 acres of land.

Is anyone familiar enough with some Williams genealogy--and the record-keeping in Surry Co. in this time period--to help me sort out these two Joseph Williamses?

My g.g.g.g.grandparents were James Grier (Caswell Co) and Agnes Cummins (Person Co). Agnes was born in 1769, James in 1770. They married and moved to Sumner Co, TN ca 1790. Their third son was named EZEKIEL CURRY GRIER. There are no other Ezekiels in this family and I assume that the child was named for Ezekiel Curry, who is found in the 1790 census for Rockingham County. Does anyone know where Ezekiel Curry was from or anything about his family?

Gerry Robideaux ::grobideaux@yahoo.com 584 http://www.usgennet.org/usa/mo/stlouis/williams http://www.usgennet.org/usa/mo/stlouis/williams

Go to the following link:


It should say "Early Descendants of John Williams, "The Wealthy Welshman" of Hanover County, Virginia." Scroll down and you will find both of your Joseph Williams on this site. There are some errors on this page but most of the research is sound. One natable error is on Joseph, s/o Daniel, b. 1742. A death date of 1766 is given. This is wrong. He was married 3 June 1766 to Sarah Lanier. He died in 1774, source-his will.

After the death of Joseph, Sarah married his 1st cousin Robert, s/o Nathaniel.

Scroll down and you will find the other Joseph, Col. Joseph Williams, Duke of Surrey, who married Rebecca Lanier, sister of Sarah Lanier Williams. Joseph is a brother to Sarah's 2nd husband.

It is very confusing.

The Journal of Rockingham County History & Genealogy
Francie Lane ::

Hi All,

I just received the most recent edition of "The Journal of Rockingham County History & Genealogy", published by the Rockingham Co. Historical Society, Inc. and am thrilled to see a project has been undertaken by Betty H. Born to abstract the Minutes of the Pleas & Quarter Sessions, commencing with the court's first term, February, 1786.

The Pleas & Quarter Sessions comprise all the normal business of the court; i.e., bound-out orphans, bonding of county officials, probates, proving deeds, names of jurors, etc. - but the most interesting are the "road orders", which name the jurisdictional boundary for the road work and the *neighbors*, charged with the responsibility of laying out a new road or maintaining it. For example:

August Term 1786: p. 28 - A Petition of the inhabitants praying for a road to be laid from the Iron Works to the Surry* line near Lemuel SMITHs Mill. The following persons ordered to view best way for the road and report to next Court. Thomas MASSEY, MOSES SHORT, William SUTHERLAND, Zaza BRASHER, Patrick MULLENS, Lewis PEEPLES, Andrew HOPKINS, William WILLIAMS, Saml. FINDLEY, Thomas LOMAX and SAML. SHORT. [*Note that Stokes County was not yet created]

In addition, Society Historian, Charles D. Rodenbough, wrote a fascinating article for "The Journal" on "The Early Doctors of Madison, North Carolina".

Check their web site for information on joining the Society or purchasing copies of past years' Journals:

Susan G. Martin ::bugssbunny@aol.com 212

My mother's maiden name was Plummer. Her father Wade Hampton Plummer,descends from Thomas Plummer(1744-1804) who married Mary Hodges. Thomas and Mary Hodges Plummer's son Charles was born Jan 30, 1771 in Maryland. Charles was married to Mary Boyd,who was born abt 1771 in NC, maybe Guilford County. They at some time migrated to Darlington County, SC. Charles and Mary Boyd Plummer's son Ebenezer B. Plummer born 1824/27 in NC and died 1862 in the Civil War. Ebenezer was married to Sarah E. Mims(born 1824 in Darlinton County, SC) Their son George Wade Plummer (1853-1944) was my great grandfather. He lived and died in Darlington County, SC. Since many of my Plummer relatives lived a long time, it has been easier to trace them back to their ancestors. If you want more on these Plummers and their siblings or other relatives I would be glad to share with you. I would be interested in seeing any documents that might relate to my Plummers.

Dillard Family
John Dillard ::john@dillard-eng.com

My father side of the family lived in the Henry County Virginia area from about 1780 until 1873. In 1873 my great-grandfather George Penn Dillard and his wife moved to Gainesville Florida. George Dillard's father’s name was Peter Hairston Dillard. According to Census records George was born in Rockingham County, North Carolina in 1830. One of George's sisters married a Spencer and to information from the Spencer family she was born on a plantation on the Dan River on a plantation known as Plain Valley. I have researched historical information on the Internet of this area and have had no luck in finding any information about this tobacco farm. However, Peter is on the 1830 census on sheet 307a.

George Dillard apparently had a tobacco plantation in the area of Matrimony Creek somewhere only North Carolina/Virginia state line. It is also rumored that Peter's father whose name was John Dillard had property in the area of Horsepasture, Virginia.

George Dillard's wife was Fanny Virginia Penn, and she was the daughter of Peter Philipp and Eli Penn and they apparently lived fairly close to George and Fanny before Peter died in 1873.

I would appreciate any information on any of these properties or contacts are directions to contact who may have the historical information: property/houses in these areas.

I am trying to establish ancestry line of his parents John & Mahala Griffin Fleming of NC, and obtain more backgrd on William Tyler Fleming, actual date of birth, death (prior to 1870) and possible gravesite. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Pat

I saw your earlier post from 2001 recently. Was wondering if you had any info on William Fleming also? I've just recently begun researching my 3rd ggggrandfather (William Fleming)b: abt 1750. Not sure if he was born in NC or Ireland. My grandfather John James (Jim)Fleming, was born in Newton/Rockdale Co, GA. in 1866. He was William's great grandson, & used to talk about his ggrandfather coming from Ireland. I'm not sure if I remember correctly though, it might have been his 2nd gggrandfather instead who came from Ireland. If you have any info on him, please let me know. I know Agnes was my 3rd gg grandmother and her parents were Benjamin Starrett 1724-1778 and Mary Hunter 1722-1755. I believe Benjamin was from New Jersey. Any info you may have is appreciated.

I just responded to the earlier message from Jim Fleming re: Agnes Starrett. She and William Fleming would have been my 3rd ggggrandparents. Their son, John Fleming & wife Mahala Griffin had about 5 children in Rockingham Co, NC before moving to Newton Co, GA where their last child Sarah D Fleming (#6) was born abt 1833. Their second youngest child, William Tyler Fleming,b: abt 1830,(last child b: in NC) was my great grandfather. I also show that Benjamin Starrett was Agnes's father from New Jersey. Would love to compare notes, & find more info about William Fleming. Any info you can provide is appreciated. Thanks, Pat

I saw the following post on RootsWeb dated 8/31/2007:

From the Knoxville Gazette of May 18, 1793:

"Franklin County, 17th inst. A party of Cherokees killed and scalped a man of the name of Towery, on Chawgee Creek, between Tugalo and Kiowee, and carried off a number of horses,desparately wounding William Flemming on Grove Fork of Broad River (possibly French Broad R.), who received one wound through the arm, another in his hip, a third through his thigh, and though he made his escape, we are informed he is since dead. This murder was committed by three Cherokee Indians on or near the frontier of South Carolina."

Could this be the same William Fleming from Rockingham County, NC who died in 1793 as will was probated August/1793?
