Came to Lunenburg Co. from: County~State~Year PA after 1733
Moved from Lunenburg Co to: Co~State~Year I think they died in Lunenberg/Mecklenburg Co.
Comments:
Jieronymus Glantz and Erna Barbara Mack were married in 1722 in Lebanon Co. PA by Rev. Stoever. His German name is Jeremiah Claunch in English and he is found on the Lunenburg Co. tax lists of 1748-1752 with George Mack living in his household. I do not know when he died but am pretty sure he lived in Lunenburg/Mecklenburg Co. until his death. A John Claunch is also on the 1752 Lunenburg Co. tzx list of 1752 and I belive that is his son, John Michael Claunch.

Name of Family Head & Wife John Grinage & UNK
Came to Lunenburg Co. from: County~State~Year lived there in 1769
Comments:
Origin is unknown. This is the earliest spelling of this surname I have found! He may have been a descendent of Abel Greenwich who was an indenturd servant from England in Barbados in 1520's.

The surname thereafter picks up in Lincoln County, Georgia, however, no direct connection yet determined. It appears that some of the Georgian Grinages migrated to Louisiana. Grinages of Tennessee appear to have done this too. They, then spread into Texas.

My line may be directly descended from John in Va, but I have no confirmation yet. Grinage is a Mitsawokett surname as well as SOMETIMES associated with 'melungeons.'

Name of Family Head & Wife John Smith and Martha Wyatt
Moved from Lunenburg Co to: Co~State~Year Gadsden County, Florida in 1829
Comments:
John Smith was born in Brunswick County, Virginia, May 8, 1789; as a young man he moved to Lunenburg County. There he started a business and married Martha Wyatt, who was a direct descendant of the Reverend Hawte Wyatt (1594 to 1638) who was a brother of Sir Frances Wyatt (1644), Colonel Governor of Virginia. From this union there were born five sons and three daughters: Mary Ann Paulina Smith (Ogilvie), Thomas R. Smith, John H. Smith, Sallie Smith (Snellings), Benjamin Overstreet Smith, William B. Smith, Lucy Smith (A.E. Snellings), and Andrew J. Smith.

In 1829, he and his family, together with a family of Wyatts, a family of Rices, and a family of Hagoods, migrated to Florida in covered wagons. Florida at that time was a territory having been purchased from Spain in 1819. He had planned to go as far south as Marion County, Florida, but as his money gave out and his teams were tired by the time he reached Quincy, he stopped there and rented a small farm from Major Gee, two miles southeast of Quincy. Later he bought this land with considerable other acreage and started farming. He lived there the remainder of his life and is buried near the spot where the first tobacco grew.

He brought from Virginia the seed of a type of tobacco used for chewing and pipe smoking. This tobacco was grown in Virginia at that time. He planted these seeds and found that the plants grew vigorously, but as there was not market for tobacco in small quantities, it was twisted together and pressed down in small boxes or barrels and used for chewing purposes by his friends and slaves.

From local sources he obtained some Spanish tobacco seed and planted them in the same field. This tobacco was very different in appearance and taste to that grown from the Virginia seed. The product of this seed was a short, narrow leaf, but it possessed a delightful aroma that many thought was as fine as the best Havana cigar. It was afterwards called the "Little Duval" or "Spanish Tobacco," being named for one of the early governors of the Florida territory, because he was so interested in the experiment of tobacco.

Moved from Lunenburg Co to: Co~State~Year Newberry county, South Carolina shortly before the Revolution, about 1770.
Comments:
Peter and Prudence Hawkins dob around 1750 are both supposed to have been born in Virginia and settled in Newberry county, South Carolina. Consistent with many other family stories which trace ancestry to Lunenberg. I think he was the son of Joshua Hawkins who left Lunenburg county as well. Joshua settled in Greenville, South Carolina, but Peter and Prudence continued south to Newberry. I know that one of Peter's sons, William, marries and moves to Greenville, SC. He probably married a cousin there. Seems reasonable. Hope there are some other connections out there.

My research of my families geneaology takes me back through Wyoming Co. W.V., to Ashe Co. N.C. to the year 1800 where i lose track of my ancestors. I have found a 1755 tax roll form Orange, Co. N.C. for a Thomas Laxton. I have also found a Thomas Laxton and a John B. Laxton on a 1752 and a 1751 tithe list for a "Sunlight on the Southside" in Lunenburg, Co. so the Counties are so close as well as the dates i figure they had to come through there sometime or another.
