Caswell Co. Surnames Ford
Comments:
I am looking for information (birth/death) information on Thomas S. Ford (born about 1805). I know he was married to Elmina Dotson (sometimes spelled Dodson) on May 1, 1828 in Yancyville, Caswell County NC. I can see that Thomas was in Caswell County in 1850 but after that I cannot find anything. I also know that Elmina is listed as a widow in the 1870 census so Thomas died some time between 1850 and 1870. Does anyone have any additional information about the line of the Ford family? Thank you. Julie

Caswell Co. Surnames Anthony
Comments:
I am trying to find proof that my 4th Great Grandmother, Pembrooke Anthony was the daughter of James Anthony who was killed in an Indian attack in 1795. I found the following reference on the internet, "On Jan 27, 1800 the Court in that jurisdiction appointed John Corder Sr. (maternal grandfather) and Joseph Anthony (paternal uncle) co-guardians for both Lewis and Pembrooke Anthony." "That jurisdiction" mentioned is Caswell County. Unfortunately, the person who posted the above has passed away. I have checked with the North Carolina State Archives and they do not have this guardianship record. Is there anyone in Caswell County who could check to see if this is in the County Courthouse? Thanks in advance for any help or direction you can provide. Mike

Comments:
Looking for some proof that the man I have listed as Nathaniel B. Finch is the same Samuel Finch that married Sarah A. Dodson in Caswell County on 30 April 1859. It seems all items fit, but I don't find him referred to as Samuel anywhere else except for the marriage bond. They eventually ended up in Pittsylvania County Virginia.

Thanks

Caswell Co. Surnames Bruce, Zachary, Penick
Comments:
I'm looking for the parents of my 3rd great grandmother, Mrs. Bartholomew Zachary (1778-1844) My records show her name as sometimes Mary Bruce or Polly Bruce. I've seen several family trees that list her parents as Alexander Bruce (1750-1796) and Anne Penick (1763-1863). Until I can verify her birth parents, I'm stopped. I show her birth date as abt 1779 in Caswell County, NC. (Those "about" dates are not much help.) I'd appreciate anyone who can direct me to a birth record source. This is lat 18th century, a turbulent time in our nation's history, etc. The sources that might give me confidence to verify who her parents are will probably be personal journals, family bibles, or histories written about that time. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan

Comments:
Julius Fred Brinkley married Buna Iola Abernathy in Catawba Co Jan 10, 1915. They were in Catawba in 1920. After this they emigrated to Caswell Co, the town of Milton. Their death records show that they died and were buried at "Rt l, Milton, NC". Any idea just what cemetery this could be? I was quite surprised to find this Abernathy connection in Caswell as all her sublings stayed in Catawba Co. The Brinkley family were working in sawmilling in the census.
Any ideas welcome. Thank you for your kindness. Zelia Cline

Caswell Co. Surnames Rice, Beaver, Carroll
Comments:
On the Marriage Bond listings, there is a Jeremiah Rice who married a Nancy Harrison on October 20, 1843. (He married Mary Ann Perkins later in 1851.) I am wondering if Jeremiah and Nancy had any children, specifically... a Nancy E. Rice who married James P. Beaver on August 23, 1859 (whom are also listed on the Caswell Marriage Bond listings).

I would also like to know if James and Nancy had any children, specifically... Mary A. Beaver (born 1860) who married John Athol Carrell/Carroll (s/o of Nathaniel & Esther (Lovelace) Carrell/Carroll) in 1875.

Can anyone help me?

This is my theory.. that Nancy E. Rice is a daughter of Jeremiah Rice and Nancy Harrison. Nancy E's mother died when she was young, so Jeremiah remarried to Mary Ann Perkins in 1851. As a young girl, Nancy E. then related to Mary Ann as her mother. Nancy E. then married James P. Beaver in 1859 and in 1860, gave birth to a daughter, naming her Mary Ann after her stepmother. Nancy E. died shortly afterwards and James diseappeared, leaving the infant Mary Ann Beaver to be raised by her grandfather, Jeremiah Rice and his wife, Mary Ann (Perkins). (Source: 1860 & 1870 Census records) This would explain when infant Mary Ann Beaver married John A. Carroll, that she listed Jas. Beaver as her father and a Mary as her mother. (Source: NC Marriages, 1759-1979.)

And finally, on the 1900 Census record, John and Mary Carroll's daughter, Mollie/Mary (Carroll) Hensley listed Jeremiah Rice as her great-grandfather.

If anyone can help me prove (or disprove!) my theory, please let me know. I need to know if these three couples are truely connected to each other. Any assistance about them is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

We descend thru John M. and I have most, if not all on this family. My focus now is on Will. I'm almost certain that his name could be William. In Caswell Co. Bastardy bond book page 51 there is a listing for:
Harrett P. Hughs date 1827 Bondsman, Andrew Montgomery- Bondsman, William Montgomery - Bondsman, Hugh CobbJul.
This most certainly is Will, since he was 23 in 1850 b Ca 1827. Does any one know anything about Harrett P. Hughs, Will J. Hughs or Andrew Montgomery?

Caswell Co. Surnames Pass
Comments:
In an attempt to locate the parents of Nathaniel Pass Sr, I am attempting to understand the formation of counties in order search in the correct location for records. I have come upon a question regarding a seeming move of the Pass family around 1780. Nathaniel Sr was born in 1732 in VA in what was to eventually become Halifax county. Halifax County VA wasn't formed until 1752 so Nathaniel Sr's birth records (if any) would most likely not be in Halifax County records. In 1759 Nathaniel Sr married Alsey McGinnis Holloway in Halifax Co VA which is indeed noted in Halifax County records. However, in 1779 it appears that Nathaniel Sr is given a land grant in Caswell County North Carolina. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that would seem to indicate that he moved from Halifax County VA to Caswell Co NC. However, I have an alternate theory that I'd like to inquire about.

Nathaniel Pass Sr died near Milton in the Northeastern part of Caswell County, NC. This is very near the NC/VA
border. In 1728-1733, Col. William Byrd and others conducted a survey of the VA/NC border, and on this web site: http://www.oldhalifax.com/county/VaNcBorder.htm, it says, "Much to Virginia's surprise, a 'great quantity of land and numbers of families' were placed in North Carolina that before had been under Virginia." And then in 1780, Nathaniel Pass Sr appears in Caswell County records, after having been given a "Land Grant" in Caswell Co.

It is my supposition that this "Land Grant" was just a matter of correcting official land records. In essence,
it wasn't a move at all but a correction of which state
had jurisdiction to collect taxes and such and the "Land
Grant" was just a matter of entering Nathaniel Sr's true ownership of the land in Caswell Co, NC's official records.

Given that the location of his death is near Milton which is itself near the state border it would seem likely to me that he wouldn't have moved this short of a distance.

Can anyone confirm or refute this? Or perhaps point me
in a good direction for further research?

Thank you!

STERLING DIXON:

REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN

DISMISSED FROM THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS?

MARRIED THEE TIMES?

HIS KNOWN DESCENDANTS

SURNAMES: DIXON; HARLAN; TERRAL; STEPHENS; KING


Sterling Dixon once resided in Granville County, North Carolina, where he had served with the Patriots of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.

His descent was of the original settlers of the religious faith, The Society of Friends that immigrated from County Armagh, Parish of Sego, Ireland to that of New Castle County, Pennsylvania, British Colony. Henry Dixon and his wife, Rose Harlan responded to a speech given by William Penn, upon which they converted, before becoming immigrants to his colony.

It is my belief that Sterling Dixon may have been born, perhaps his parents had been residents of either Randolph County, Chatham County, Orange County or Alamance County of the North Carolina British Colony; at this time, it would be speculating as to whom may have been his parents.

Mr. Dixon may have married more than three or more times; his daughter, Phebe Dixon was possibly of the first marriage; she was born circa 1790 in either the Marlboro District or Newberry District of South Carolina; she married John Terral, the son of Edward Young Terral and his wife, Artilissa Stephens, circa 1812 ; his birth date has been recorded as 22 June 1784.

The 1790 United States Census of Newberry County, South Carolina enumerated Mr. Dixon and his family, as well as others of the Dixon Surname; there were members of the Edward Young Terral Family that were recorded in the 1790 Enumeration of the, as well.

In the 1830 Federal Census Enumeration of Saint Tammany Parish, Louisiana, Sterling Dixon II and his brother, Spias Dixon were recorded as residents, as well as that of John King, a brother of his wife, Lydia King.

As to how John Terral and his wife, Phebe Dixon became acquainted, there has not been any documentation at this time.

My Terral-Dixon Forbears were some of the earliest settlers that had removed from South Carolina to the Mississippi Territory.

Spias Dixon, a son of Sterling Dixon may have been born in the vicinity of Columbia County or Richmond County of Georgia; perhaps he was of the first marriage, if so, both he and his older sister, Phebe Dixon may have been of Cherokee or Cheraw Indian Descent; many descendants, including that of my forbear, were known to have exhibited black hair and dark features that would have been characteristic of Indian Descent. Spias Dixon married Lydia King some time prior to his having become enumerated in the 1840 United States Census of Jones County, Mississippi. Lydia King was born in Newberry County, South Carolina, as her family became established there some time before her birth.

It is my belief that Sterling Dixon may have been officially dismissed by The Society of Friends because of his involvement in the cause of the Continental Army of the Patriots during the Revolutionary War, as well as his having owned slaves. There is a possibility that Mr. Dixon may have been tolerated by the religious leaders for many years because of his continued practice to settle amongst those of The Society of Friends.

Spias Dixon was recorded in many of the United States Census Enumerations from 1830-1870; in Mississippi, he was found in the earliest of the Census Returns with his sister, Mrs. Phebe Dixon Terral in both Jones County and Jasper County of Mississippi; both had received Federal Land Patents prior to the War for Southern Independence.

I realize there was a William Gately who died around 1799 but William K isn't listed as one of his sons. There seem to be three heads of family in the 1790 census with my surname: Joseph, Thomas and William. Do you know of any way to figure out which one was my ancestor? Also, is there anyone who has done research on this surname--were they Irish or English? Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

With her being a baby I'm not sure where she would have went Family, foster care. I'm not sure that vaughn was her family name. She could have just picked it up with the family. I saw in her obit that she was born in South Boston. I checked there and has someone search court records for adoption or custody rights. Her name did not show anywhere. Any help would be great.

Comments:
I am interested in the family of Virginia Elizabeth Moore. She was born at Locust Hill, Caswell County, N.C. on August 20, 1850. She was the daughter of Alexander Moore and Mary. Reportedly, Mary's maiden name was Mary Lee Carter. I have been told that the family lived in or was associated with the Moore House (Annie Y. Gwynn House). Family history says Mary Moore died and Alexander Moore remarried. From what I have been told, he later died and his second family inherited his estate. My mother, Virginia's granddaughter, was told that when Alexander died the Swepson family wanted to adopt Virginia. Reportedly, her guardian, a Poteat, did not approve. In any case, Virginia moved to Spring Hope to live with her sister Eudora Moore Owen. I would like to find out more about the families of Alexander Moore and Mary (Lee Carter?) Moore.

I am a descendant of Philip Russel Pierce born in Caswell County, NC in 1813. Philip Russel Pierce married Ann Catherine Schrock.

I know his father was Philip Pierce whose wife was named Mary.

I am also a descendant of William Farrar and Cecily Jordan Farrar.

I'm thinking the Pierces and Farrars have a connection as far back as the Jamestown colony, only because Cecily stayed for a time with Captain William Pierce before she married Bailey. Now I wonder if Philip is somehow connected to William. Can anyone help me with this?

Comments:
Researching Thomas MILES, a Rev. War Vet. arrived in Caswell Co. NC in April 1774 with a very pregnant wife, Nanny PATTERSON, and they needed shelter.

They had married in February of 1774 and moved here to avoid being shunned in Cumberland Co. VA where Thomas lived with his step father John Brown.

I assumed he arrived and lived near other MILES relatives in the county till he could get established, perhaps siblings or cousins

He left the area about 1800 with some married children and lived in the Nashville area.

I would like any information available about Thomas in Caswell Co. Is there information on land sales still available from that time period.

Caswell Co. Surnames SCOTT
Comments:
I am looking for a birth registry entry for a Kenneth O. Scott (b.18 Apr 1913). His death certificate says only that he was born in "Virginia". However, I think otherwise. His parents were Andrew Wilson and Alice Scott. They met and are assumed to have married in or around Yanceyville (where Alice lived). Family recollection has it that in order for Andrew to marry Alice at such a young age, it was "required" by her Grandfather (guardian) that the couple live on his property for "a few years". Benjamin Poteat lived on Milton Road with his wife (also named Alice) per the 1900 and 1910 census for Yanceyville, Caswell County, NC; both reports include Andrew's soon to be wife, Alice residing with the Poteat's. As Kenneth Scott was the first of four children born to Andrew W. and Alice Scott--with the second born in Yanceyville and the third just north of there in Milton, I am thinking that it is more logical that Kenneth would have actually been born in Yanceyville before they moved off the Poteat property.

Any assistance you might be able to provide in verifying Kenneth Scott's place of birth, or the marriage of Andrew Wilson and Alice [Lea] Scott in approximately 1912--in or around Yanceyville, would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Richard Martin

I am seeking info on my ancestor, Thomas Langley, who supposedly migrated from Caswell Co NC to Jackson Co GA in the early 1800's. His wife's first name is Nancy, and she may have originated from South Carolina. I am guessing that Thomas was born between 1781-1792, unknown location. Thomas may have been a preacher. Any info on Thomas Langley from NC would be appreciated.

Caswell Co. Surnames Peterson
Comments:
I descend from Vincent Peterson and Polley Peterson of Caswell County North Carolina.

Vincent Peterson and his spouse Polley Peterson (her maiden name was Peterson as well) were married 19 May 1821 in Caswell County North Carolina.

It's rather tough finding information on the above two ancestors of mine with both of them having the last name of Peterson.

In 1850 the family is living in Williamson County Illinois:

Peterson Vincent 60 farmer $250 NC
Mary 45 NC
Elijah 25 farmer NC
Elizabeth 20 NC
Blanche 17 NC
Mary 14 NC
Agnes 11 NC

I believe the family above could be connected with the below people of Caswell County, NC:



Polly Peterson married Vincent Peterson on 19 May 1821 in Caswell County North Carolina, Richmond District. I have no idea if they were cousins or simply shared the same surname. I did see where the witness for the marriage was Noah Page.

On 22 March 1819 Elizabeth Lea married Samuel Paul and the witness was Vincent Peterson. I wonder if there is a family connection with Peterson and Lea?

On 10 Januar 1820 Susan Peterson married Noah Page, and Benjamin Dameron was the witness.

Susannah Peterson married Edward Morton on 3 July 1825 and John Lea was the witness.

On 7 March 1825 Blanche Peterson married David Hall and Freeman Hubbard was the witness.

My above ancestors Polly and Vincent Peterson did have a daughter (my ancestor as well) by the name of Blancy/Blanche Peterson, and I wonder if the Blance Peterson who married David Hall could be the sibling of either Vincent or Polly Peterson?


I may be reached by email at yidman@aol.com

Thank you,

Caswell Co. Surnames Cobb
Comments:
I am attempting to tie the family of Joseph K. Cobb, born c1798,99, married Kitty C. Harris, 30 Aug 1865, to other Cobb families who migrated to Haywood and Madison Counties about 1826 - 1830. Joseph K. died 1861 in Haywood Co., TN. after which time Kitty sold their property in Haywood Co., TN and returned to Caswell Co, NC. where she died in 1890. Her mother's maiden name was Kenson; her father's first name is unknown. She was born 1808 in Virginia.

Joseph K. Cobb may have attended the Bethesda Presbyterian Church.

The family of Nicholas Cobb, who migrated from Isle of Wight, VA and Bertie Co., NC lived nearby in Haywood Co., but there is no apparent connection between them and Joseph K. Cobb. On the other hand, Joseph's and Kitty's daughter Sarah Frances Cobb married Anderson Rose, and they are buried with family members from the line of Robert W. Cobb b. 10/23/1793 Caswell Co., NC., married Mary Ann Tate 10/6/1818. Robert Cobb died 4/21/1956. We suspect that Joseph K. may have been a brother or a close cousin of either one or both these families as his migration followed a little later, but local records reveal nothing.

Comments:
Yesterday I came across a volume in the Indiana State Library entitled, "Caswell County North Carolina Marriage Bonds 1778-1868."

Pn page 31 of that volume, there is a marriage shown between Abediah (in fact, Obediah) Crews and Rebecca Cobb. Date of the marriage was 10 November 1835, and the bondsman or witness was Jesse E. Cobb.

Can enyone explain the relationship between Jesse and Rebecca? Was he her father or a brother?

The few Caswell County records I have seen seem to indicate that Obediah Crews' parents may have been an Obediah Crews Sr and Martha. Does anyone know anything about this family?

Thanks.

I am looking for Jesse Thomas Long born abt. 1886-1889. His parents were Thomas Jefferson Long and Nannie Adkins. He was born in Halifax Co. VA. He married Lena Jane Cole in 1911 in Halifax VA. They then moved to Caswell Co. NC and had a son also named: Jesse/Jessie Thomas Long. He was born in 1914. Lena took the child and left and there is no info on Jesse Thomas Long Sr. after that. He is my husband's grandfather and we have nothing else on him. Where he lived after Lena left, when he died. Nothing. Can anyone please help. I have exausted all avenues except the Social Security Board which is expensive and still may not find a record. Vital records in Virginia will not help us, because we don't know where or when he died. We have checked some funeral homes in Person Co. NC and in Halifax Co. VA. They don't have anything.

Caswell Co. Surnames MARTIN, TURNER, FLOWERS, PIPKIN, POWELL BROWN
Comments:
I am seeking help with the following family, one Richard Martin who may have been born in Orange Co., VA., m1 ANTHORITE ___ and with her had 4 children: 1) Lydia, b ca 1750, married Jacob Flowers; 2) Mary, b ca 1753, m ___ Pipkin, dec'd before her father wrote his will in 1786; 3) Aaron, b 1755, died with will in 1795...names son Richard in the will but indicates 6 additional children not named; 4) Elizabeth Martin, b 1760, m ca 1786, probably in Wayne Co., NC., to Nicholas Powell, son of Douglas Powell and brother to Starling Powell. In 1765 Richard and Anthorite were selling VA property possibly in preparation for moving into NC, Caswell or Orange Co. When and where Anthorite died is not known; however, on 25 Oct 1783 Richard Martin married in Caswell Co., Frances Turner, daughter of Henry Turned who left a will. Richard was on the Tax Roll in 1784 in Caswell Co where his son, "Little" Richard was born. Other children born to this union were 2) Bitha in 1785 and 3) Sarah "Sallie" b 1785, m in 1806 to Samuel Flowers. "Little" Richard married in 1816 to Sarah Brown, granddaughter of Leonard Brown; this couple relocated to TN, perhaps, Sumner Co. where he died in 1842.

Richard Martin wrote his will in 1786, probated in in 1786 all in Wayne Co., NC. In the will he named his 7 children and his wife, Franky. During 1788 the following occurred: 1) Franky filed an inventory on the estate of Richard Martin, dec'd, naming children of both marriages; a bond was posted by Aaron Martin for the guardianship of "Little" Richard and Samuel Harrill made bond to be the guardian of the two minor females, Bitha and Sarah; 3) Frances/Franky sells to Samuel Harrill the 150 ac on which she then lives that had been left to her by Richard Martin, dec'd, on the condition that he rear her 3 children, namely: Richard, Bitha, and Sarah. While Samuel Harrill retained guardianship of the two girls, Bitha and Sarah, in 1793 Starling Powell posted bond for guardianship of "Little" Richard with the understanding that he was responsible to Aaron Martin as to the management of the assets of "Little" Richard.

What I have for this family has been derived from primary sources such as the NC Archives, Deeds of Wayne Co., NC., Tas payers of NC, etc.; however, there reamains a crucial question, did this Richard Martin serve during the RW or did he not? If so, in which unit might his record be located? Anything at all that would be helpful in identify that service.

I need help in separating the entities of "my" Richard Martin and of the "other" Richard Martin who was born 1755, served 2.5 yrs in the Continental line, married one Frances Turner on 25 Oct 1781 in Caswell County, applied for a pension in 1832, and died in 1841 in Caswell Co.; that his wife, Frances, died soon after, also in Caswell Co. This Richard had 5 sons, one named George T, born 1784 and who was the executor of the will of his mother. [I have been unable to locate his will.] The children of this marriage were George T, b 1784;p Lewis Martin, James Martin, Henry Martin b 23 Feb 1793, and Richard Martin.

As you will note, there are few similarities between these two Richards other than the name of their wives, the dates of marriage which were two years apart, Caswell Co., and a son named Richard who appears to have had no active role in the documentation of this latter family.

All indicators point to the fact that "my" Richard was a much older man than the "other" Richard which would not necessarily preclude "my" Richard from having seen RW service, at least in providing Patriotic Service. The crux of this seems to be: DID OR DID NOT "MY" RICHARD MARTIN SERVE DURING THE RW?

I am seeking the identification of one Richard Martin who, perhaps, came to Caswell Co., NC., ca 1765 from Orange Co., VA.

When did Anthorite die? On 25 Oct 1783 in Caswell Co., Richard Martin married Frances Turner, dau/o Henry Taylor who d ca 1807; Richard was on 1784 tax roll in Caswell Co where his son was born in 1784. Daughter Bitha was born 1785, and daughter Sarah, 1786, married in 1806 to Samuel Flowers.Richard wrote his will in Wayne Co NC in 1786, he died in 1786, and his will was probated in 1786, all in Wayne Co., NC. Daughter Mary who married ___ Pipkin was dec'd at the time her father wrote his will. In 1788 the following events occurred: 1) Samuel Harrill was given guardianship of the two girls, Bitha and Sarah; 2) Aaron Martin was given guaridanship of "little" Richard; 3) Franky Martin filed an inventory on the estate of the late Richard Martin in which she named the foregoing children and them alone; 4) Franky sold to Samuel Harrill the 150 acres on which she was living that had been left to her by Fichard Martin, dec'd, on the condition that he rear her three children...Richard, Bitha, and Sarah. In 1793 Starling Powell, brother to Nicholas Powell and son of Douglas Powell, posted bond for the guardianship of "little" Richard, being responsible to Aaron Martin for the management of "little" Richard's inheritance. In 1816 "little" Richard Martin was married to Sarah Brown, granddaughter of Leonard Brown and he, along with in-laws relocted to TN, perhaps Sumner County. In 1806 Sararh "Sallie" Martin married Samuel Flowers. Whom did Aaron Martin marry and what was the names of the 6 children not named in his will; he named only son Richard. What was the given name of Mr. Pipkin who married Mary Martin. When and where were they married, her date of death, and issue? What about Lydia and Jacob Flowers? Aaron and and the name of his wife? Did Franky remarry? When and where did she die? Did she leave a will naming the children named in her husband's will, at least those of "little" Richard, Bitha, and Sarah Martin (Flowers)? Any help with the reconstruction of this family will be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Looking for information on Caswells.

Any info would be appreciated. My gr. gr. grandfather was William Ransom Caswell (1827?-1891?). He was from Philadelphia area, then joined the Navy, served on the Albany during the Mexican War, then was working with a traveling circus around New Orleans when he was conscripted into the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Following the war he moved to Oremenia in Central PA to work in the mines. We cannot find his parents or siblings names. Any information on Caswell lines in your area might be helpful to us since we know he lived in the South after the Mexican War and until the Civil War was over.

Because Charles and Nancy named a daughter "Eliza Williams Moore" we may find that the Elizabeth who married John White was a Williams.

Andrew Jackson lived for a time in Tennessee but is believed to have gone on to Mississippi before coming to Texas prior to 1850. He never owned property and left a "very small footprint." It is believed that he married first to Susan M. who was also born in North Carolina. She could have been a Hester or a Morgan and died after 1850 in Texas.

On your website, there is a section about the Cobb Family, contributued by Mark Phelps. I have just started my own family research and have run into many snags. One of them is the Cobb Family. The research I have to date takes me to Samuel H. Cobb born in Indiana (1828) married to Mary Ann (Hatfield?). Census information indicates that his father was from South Carolina and mother from Indiana.
John Cobb and Avery Owens have come up as possible parents on LDS, but so has the family of John Cobb and Ann Black.

The information Mr. Phelps provided was extremely interesting and has hopefully pointed me in the right direction. In the article he mentioned having further information on descendants of Thomas Cobb (b.1781) and John Cobb (b. 1786). I would be very interested in seeing if I fall into either of these lines.

I would be greatful for any help in this matter.

Sincerely
David Posey

Caswell Co. Surnames Ashby/Johnson
Comments:
I am desperately trying to find out who the parents of my gg grandmother, Elizabeth Ashby, were. She was supposedly born in North Carolina in about 1799/1800. Somehow, she managed to get to Jefferson Co., Alabama. There she married my gg grandfather, Randolph Johnson in 1823. The only other Ashby I have found there was a James Ashby, born in 1807 and died in 1891, buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery. This I found from looking at the Mt. Zion cemetery records which are now on line. Then, I found from looking for a James Ashby on Google.com, that there were a LOT of James Ashby's, but one was from Caswell, North Carolina. Is there anybody out there who has heard of the Ashby family in NC and/or is researching them? Thanks for any info you can give me. I would love to find out who Elizabeth Ashby's parents were. Naturally, this James Ashby I found could only be a relative, like a younger brother.

Trying to connect my family to ther Caswell County roots. Harriet Graves/Groves/Games was born in Milton, NC around 1820.

I believe she first married a Mr. Jones around 1840 and had three children: Lewis (1844), Virginia (1846), and Carolina (1849) in Milton, NC. I found a record of them in the 1850 census.

She must have then married a Charles William Boyd in Caswell Co around the 1850 and then moved to Brown Co, Ohio around 1855. I have found her widowed in the 1860-1910 Ohio census records.

I am trying to confirm Harriet's maiden name and find out more information of her marriage to Mr. Jones.

If anyone has any valuable information or suggestions I would appreciate. Thanks.

Caswell Co. Surnames King
Comments:
I am looking for information on Edward King who is my ggg grandfather, born 1755-60. Was in the Revolutionary War. Served two terms and was discharged in S.C. When discharged it was stated he went back to his home in Caswell Co. M.C. He married Sarah Browning daughter of Jacob Browning and Elizabeth Bywaters Browning who were from Culpeper Co., Va. and had moved to Caswwell Co. He is in the 1784 to 1787 census and states they have 3 children. He is in the Gloucester District. He stayed in Caswell Co. until about 1800 when he moved to Robertson Co. Tn. He stayed there until about 1810 and is then found in Bedford Co. Tn. He applied for his pension from the time he spent in the service there in about 1820. At that time he was living with his wife Sarah and a granddaughter Harritt McIntosh. I am in search of his parents and the names of his children. I only know of two of of his children. Isaiah King born in 1793 and Mary who married William McIntosh the parents of Harritt Mcintosh. Isaiah King was with him in Bedford Co. where he married Susanna Hartsfield. It is my belief that Edward and his wife died in Bedford Co. Tn. If anyone has any information on the parents of Edward King I would appreciate hearing from you and can share information I have on him. My e-mail is coachcl@vol.com Thanks for any help.

Are there any records in Caswell County showing that Josiah Daniel b 18 Dec 1805 was born there or ever lived there? Are there any school records or church records? I'm hoping to prove that he was the son of James Key Daniel as our DNA matches his descendants. Josiah was married in Greene Co., Alabama, in 1830. I checked Caswell County, but found no marriage for him prior to that one. I checked the deed records and did not find him ever owning land there. Family legend says that Josiah was Primitive Baptist, but I do not know if his parents were or not. Thank you.

Caswell Co. Surnames Tapley, Moore, Rogers, Pryor, McFarland
Comments:
I have reason to believe my ancestors on my mother's side are buried in Caswell, Person and Orange counties.
I am looking for the following couples:
Hosea Tapley, b. about 1691, married Sarah Moore, b. about 1700 (my gggggg grandparents, yet to be verified)
John Hosea Tapley, b. about 1735, married Lucy Pryor, b, about 1740.
Hosea Green Tapley, b. about 1767, married Eleanor Rogers McFarland, b. about 1768
I have found the graves of Eleanor McFarland Tapley and all subsequent lineage to present, outside of North Carolina.
Supposedly Eleanor left Caswell County, to Ralls and Pike Co., MO, and remarried a Cleaver, after Hosea Green Tapley was killed by indians in Caswell in 1799. I did find her in the woods of land that belonged to Cleavers years and years ago.
Hosea and John Hosea Tapley may have come from VA to NC.
Any suggestions on how to verify the Tapley line would be greatly appreciated. I want to do some advanced homework,as I plan to come to the counties mentioned in a week or two. I plan to spend a week or two "on the ground" phyically searching for these people.
Thanks

Caswell Co. Surnames Mebone(Mebane(?)), Lewis
Comments:
I am looking for info on the marriage between Nora Mebone and James Lewis, as well as any children this union produced.

Linora Mebane is recorded in the 1870 Milton,Caswell Co. Census with her mother. In 1880 a Nora Mebone is recorded in a McGehee household with her eldest sister, Jane. James Lewis' family is recorded in Dan River, Pittsylvania Co., VA in 1870 and 1880. Unfortunately, I have not found James recorded with any verified family members to date. He is not recorded in his father's household in 1870 or with any of his siblings that I have identified in 1880.

I do know that Nora and James had a daughter, Maggie, ca. 1891 and a daughter, Anna, ca. 1893. Anna is recorded as a niece in the household of Harrison Stamps in 1900 Milton, Caswell Co.. I believe Henrietta Stamps to be James Lewis's sister. She is recorded as a Lewis in 1870 Dan River, Pittsylvania Co.

I can find no record of Nora Mebone(sp)between 1880 and 1910 when she reappears in Florida. 1910 is also the first time that I have found any record of Maggie. In 1910 Nora is recorded to have given birth to 13 children, 11 of which were still living. Of the 11 only 3 are recorded with her in 1910.

Any info on Nora Mebone, James Lewis and their children would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your consideration and assistance.

Comments:
Seeking help and any information on Haskew (sometimes spelled Hasque, Askew, Ascue, Aky, Haskin) PRICE. He married Nancy Fisher, oldest child of Thomas Fisher (Rev. War soldier from Lunenberg County, Virginia ) in 1799 in Caswell County. Also looking for info on Warren connection to Prices, maybe through Bluford Warren. The large Fisher family, along with Nancy Fisher Price and possibly some Warrens moved on to Robertson County, Tennessee between 1815 and 1820. They are on the 1820 census in Robertson County, Tennessee. Possible that Thomas Fisher and Haskew Price both moved over from Halifax County, Virginia. Haskew Price was born in Virginia about 1765. I suspect that Haskew is a family name, Thanks for any help. Bob Price

Caswell Co. Surnames MORTON, RICHMOND, NOEL
Comments:
Hello,

I am researching the MORTON line of the late 1700s, from Caswell County. My maternal line connects directly with Samuel C. MORTON, Sr. and my paternal 3rd great-grandfather, was Step MORTON.

Step MORTON, b. Bet. 1780 - 1784, married Nancy "Agnes" RICHMOND on January 02, 1809, in Caswell County. This is the earliest known record I have found of Step MORTON.

I have been charting the land deeds from the late 1700s - 1820s from Caswell County on the MORTONs and RICHMONDS. The MORTON clans had adjoining land on the HICO and COUNTRY CREEK RIVERS, including, MESHACK, SAMUEL, JOSEPH, JOSIAH, and PEYTON. They also had land adjoining the RICHMONDs, so I can see the connection of Step and Nancy's marriage.

I have not found any earlier records for Step MORTON. I know that he was on the 1810 Caswell County census, along with PAYTON, JOSIAH, MARY (widow of MESHACK?), ANDERSON, and WILLIAM.

Step MORTON and Samuel C. MORTON settled in Williamson County, TN in the 1810 - 1820 timeframe. I have found occurrences of Step MORTON on estate sales, but have not found any direct connection to link Step MORTON to any of the Caswell County MORTONs.

Is anyone else researching these lines of MORTONs? I would be happy to hear from you and work with you.

Best regards,

Cindy

I'm trying to find out the parents of Robert Thomas, b. 1763 d. 1810 in Caswell County.

Robert and Margaret were David Thomas b. 1792, d. 1840, my ancestor's parents. He lived and died in Guilford, NC, and is buried in Frieden's Church Cemetery.

His wife and children's death dates are unknown by any web researchers I can find. A grave for a Barzillai Kerr has reported been found in IND. I think my carrs might be related as several generations of them left NC at that time, stayed in IN for a couple of years, then went on to central IL. Would love to be proven right, or wrong.

Is there perchance any material dealing with the Morton and other families on Country Creek during this period.?

I am interested in the early history of the Glenburnie (or Glennburnie) Plantation south of Milton, which burned in the mid 1930s. I know that it was owned by the Stamps for many years, but I am wondering if anyone either knows who built it, or can suggest some records to check. I came across a brief mention of my ancestor, John Wilson Glenn in association with this property, and wonder if he built it (which might explain the "Glenn"). The Glenn's were connected to the Stamps through marriage. Thanks for any leads or suggestions, Kate

Comments:
I am trying to learn who were the parents of two brothers -- JOEL BLACKWELL and ISAIAH BLACKWELL who supposedly were born in 1738 and 1733, respectively, in the Northern Neck of Virginia in what was to become Northumberland County, Virginia.
I understand that this JOEL and ISAIAH BLACKWELL were in Orange County, North Carolina by 1763 when JOEL BLACKWELL was sued in the Orange County Court by a Richard Hansen in a property dispute matter, and ISAIAH BLACKWELL signed the Orange County Petition whereby Caswell County North Carolina was formed in 1777 from Orange County, North Carolina.
ISAIAH BLACKWELL's Caswell County property was located less than a mile from the Courthouse on Dishwater Creek, which property he sold on January 29, 1779.
This JOEL BLACKWELL married first HENRIETTA BYARS and secondly, REBECCAH WATKINS. I do not know who ISAIAH BLACKWELL first married. Late in life, both JOEL BLACKWELL and ISAIAH BLACKWELL married sisters SARAH ANN DOGGETT BYARS (Widow of William Byars)and MARY "MOLLY" DOGGETT SUTTLE (Widow of JOSEPH SUTTLE)with whom neither had any children.
JOEL BLACKWELL as a citizen of Mecklenburg County received a land grant in 1767 on Main Broad River in what was to become Rutherford County just below the present day town of Spindale.
JOEL BLACKWELL died in 1821 in Rutherford County, NC and ISAIAH BLACKWELL died in 1810 also in Rutherford County, NC.
If anyone knows the maiden name of the Wife of ISAIAH BLACKWELL or the names of the parents of these two brothers I would very much like to know about it.
Thanks!!

Comments:
I'm interested in exchanging data on the Noel and richmond families. I descend from Richmond Noel who married who married Rhoda Water Pruitt. Richmond Noel - (some believe his name was John Richmond Noel)- was the son of William Noel (aka Noell) and wife Mary. William Noel, born ca 1743 in Essex Co., VA, was living in Caswell Co., NC ca 1760, possibly earlier. Richmond Noel was born, probably in Caswell County, about 1800. Richmond Noel's mother or grandmother may have been a member of the Richmond family; however, to my knowledge, records have not been found proving that relationship.

Comments:
I'd like to exchange data with Hastings, Brintle and Powell family researchers as those researching the families of Cutburth King, William Mitchell, Enoch Henselee. I've developed an extensive database on the the Hastings and their collateral families. John Hastings b. ca 17840 and his younger sibling, Zachariah Hastings b. ca 1748-1752 settled in Caswell Co., NC in the late 1890's. Records on John Hastings and Zachariah Hastings can also be found in Warren Co., NC, Mecklenburg Co., VA, Lunenburg Co., VA, and their birthplace Amelia Co., VA. Zack served in the Virginia militia at Valley Forge under Gen. Geo. Washington. He was at Yorktown, serving under the command of Gen. Lafayette, when the British surrendered. John Hastings ARW record can not be identified; however, he was a patriot; his name can be found on Amelia Co., VA 1778's oath of alligenance. Both John Hastings and Zachariah Hastings wills were recorded in Caswell Co., NC. John and Zach had two sisters, Agnus Hastings and Tamara Hastings, whose families also settled in Caswell Co., NC. Agnus was an older half-sister to John Hastings and Zachariah Hastings. Agnus was the wife of William Brintle, Sr. Records on Agnus and/or her husband William Brintle can be found in Caswell Co., NC, Warren Co., NC, Mecklenburg and Lunenburg Co., VA as well as Amelia Co., VA. Tamar Hastings, probably a full sister to John and Zach Hastings, married Abner Powell. ARW pension files for Abner Powell and Zachariah Hastings reveal they served together in the ARW. Limited records on Abner Powell and Tamara Hastings can be found in Caswell Co., NC, Warren Co., NC and Amelia Co., VA. Collateral families include Cutberth King who married , Susannah Mitchell who married Eldridge Hastings, William Kimbrough who married Obedenience "Biddy" Hastings, and Enoch Henslee who married Amy Hastings.

The known children of this couple are; Elizabeth, Frances, Franklin, David, Martha, Sally Sarah, Mary, James, and Nancy. Elizabeth F. married W.T.

The Will of Zephaniah, written in 1864. indicates that one son and a daughter had already died and had left children as heirs. I am seeking to connect with some of the other descendants of Zephaniah and Elizabeth Smith Roberts.
Sallie married Willie Marshall. Martha m. Stephen Hawkins. Mary married James H. Lewis.
Nancy m. James Madison Warren, and they are listed on the census of 1850 with the following children, Eliza, Bedford, Mary E.,& Justina.

Caswell Co. Surnames Burk(e)
Comments:

Hello,

I'm trying to break down a wall of mine of the Burke family.

All I know is that my Grt Grt Grandfather Elijah "Lige" Burke was b/ 4-7-1873 Rockcastle Co., KY, d/ 12-1964 Harlan Co., KY he married Mrs. Bettie Dowell on Sept. 7. 1895 in Rockcastle Co., KY. She was b/ 4-7-1877 d/ 5-1-1951...

I have no idea who Elijah's parents are and I don't have the $27 the SS dept is wanting for his application! :(

Elijah & Bettie had 6 children: Alton Parker {my Grt grandfather}, Rosalee, Joe, Bertha, Bessie & Charles.

Alton's obit says that he was born in Bell County, KY. At sometime the family must have moved to Rockcastle Co. and after he married Bettie they must have moved to Harlan Co., KY where they both died.

The only family I can even find that remotely has an Elijah as a child is a Grandison Burk in Crab Orchard, Lincoln Co., KY.. but I haven't been able to find anything else!! :(

This Grandison Burk was found in the 1880 census. age 59 b/1821 NC, wife Sallie age 43 b/1837 VA and the following children: William b/1864 VA, Thomas b/1866 VA, Martha b/1868 KY, George b/ 1871 KY, Jimmie b/ 1872 KY, Eliza b/ 1874 KY, Franklin b/ 1876 KY, Elijah b/ 1876 KY, Sarah b/ 1878 KY.......

I do know by Elijah's obit that {at that time} he had 2 brothers... Frank & Jim... But anything after this is all a mystery to me!

This is the only thing I have to go on!!!

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Best Regards,
Bobbie

James Taylor 1790-1820: I'm asking about James Taylor in the federal censuses of Caswell Co. from 1790-1820, in "Unknown Townships". The main questions are:

(1) Was he married to a Nancy Ann Owen?
(2) Did he or his children migrate to Tennessee about 1800-1810?
(3) Did he have a child named Michael, born about 1787-1789?

I understand the 1790 census of Caswell is lost. I have found "James Taylor" listings as follows: 1800 -- pg. 82, Roll not specified; 1820 -- Roll M33_81, pg. 92 & roll not specified, pgs. 89 & 92.

Caswell Co. Surnames Gunn
Comments:
Hi!
I'm trying to locate the following information...I'm searching for GUNN family members. According to a DAR application:

"copy of Caswell Co. NC Equity Minute Docket re distribution of ALLEN GUNN estate shows Lucretia Parsons, wife of William Parsons, receives her share as heir of Daniel Gunn."

I am descendend from another of Daniel's daughters, SARAH who was married to Hartwell Hamlin Hailey, and I'm trying to locate documents that "tie" Sarah to her parents, Daniel and Jerusha.

According to a book called, "Thomas Gunn: 1738-1800", page 120:
"Affadavit of Daniel's heirs as shown in his brother's (Allen) estate case list . . . " and it goes on to list some of the heirs in this record.

Do you have, or know how I can get copies of this "affadavit of heirs" for ALLEN GUNN? His date of death is listed as: 1848. Allen had another brother, Starling.

Thank you so much for your help!

The writeup on The Morton Family in Caswell County is very interesting. Our family has been searching now for over 1/2 a century for the parents of David, George, Thomas and Mary Ann Morton, born in NC (according to all census reports from TN) circa 1800-1807. This writeup talks about the orphans of Meshack Morton and I am interested to know if anything is known of the other children. Also, one of David's children was named Pryor ANDERSON Morton which connects somewhat to the Anderson Morton who signed a deed concerning Thomas Wiley. If you have any additional info on this family, I would be so appreciative. Nina

Comments:
My Edward Carroll/Carrell was born 1800-1801 in Caswell Co. NC I believe. He married about 1826 and he had two sons and a daughter born in NC. The first was born 1827. They then moved to Green/Taylor Co. KY where his wife had two more children and probably died as a result of birth complications in or after 1835. Edward remarried and had at least seven more children by his second wife. I am looking for any information on my Edward and a connection with Mary Farrell in NC. I am interested to find out who his parents and grand parents are. I am looking at George and William Carroll who were living at the same time in Caswell Co. If anyone has any information that could help me I would appreciate it. Thanks much, Claren Carrell claren@cox.net

According to LDS records, Samuel Driskill was listed on the 1790 Census of Caswell County, NC. Apparently, this census was among those of 1790 that was lost. I think this is the same Samuel Driscoll (sic) who married Mary "Polly" Fisher, daughter of Abraham Fisher and Rhoda Layton. They were probably married about 1795; perhaps soone

My great-great-grandfather, Samuel Driskell, was born in 1799 in Rockingham County, North Carolina. I think he was a son of the above mentioned Samuel Driskill and Mary Fisher.
The younger Samuel married Isabella "Ibby" Dudley in Caswell County, NC, in 1820. She was daughter of Abner Dudley and Lucy Barber.

Comments:
I have been stuck here for years. Can anyone help. This is what I know for sure. Daniel Jennings purchased land in Caswell County, NC in 1801. James Jennings purchased land in Caswell County, NC in 1806. Both are on the census for Caswell County in 1810. James dies. His wife Philadelphia Graham Jennings moves the family to Scott County, Virginia (to be near the Graham family?) and is on the 1820 census there. Her children were Basil, George, Henry, and Malinda. My line comes through Basil.
What I have been trying to find for years is where did James come from? There were 16 James Jennings in the War of 1812. I have a land warrant for service issued to "Basil Jennings, son and the other heirs at law of James Jennings" The land is 160 acres in Arkansas. Was this land sold? The family stays in Scott County, Virgina.The warrant states that he served in Capt. Page's Company of the 12th Regiment. I found a Capt. Page in Massachusetts.What would he be doing there? Anybody know anything about that?
Family tradition says that three brothers came from Ireland.(some think to New Bern, NC?) I don't know if the Daniel from Caswell County is one of these brothers, the father of James or kin at all, or if the Ireland story is even true. Anyway this is where I have been stuck for many years and the only leads I have.

I am trying to find if they are the ancestors of Asahel Dollarhide b. about 1795,who died in 1845 in Sevier Co.AR. I am descended from two of "Asa"'s sons, Andrew and Cornelius Dollarhide,who were b. 18 June 1825, TX,as a twin birth.They each died in Sevier Co. AR

On the 1830 Fed.Census for Sevier Co.AR, there are listed:

Andrew Dollarhide 10001/1001/0 about 20-30 yrs.F. abt.15-20

John Dollarhide 0010000001/0000000001/0 about 80 yrs/both

Asa Dollarhide 301101/1221001/0 about 40

It is commonly accepted that Asa is the father of the twins. Is Andrew a brother of Asa? Sure would like to meet some who knows if this John in Sevier Co.AR in 1830, is the same one who later died in TX. Joy

Comments:
I am looking for info on any Wills from Caswell Co. pertaining to Jeffreys. My 3rd Greatgrandfather was William Lewis Jeffreys. He may have been Occaneechi Indian but I am not sure. His oldest son's name was Thomas so William's father may have been named Thomas. William was born about 1822 and moved to Todd Co. about 1845.
There was another set of William Jeffreys in Todd Co. at the same time that came from the Caswell and Pittsylvania Co. I believe they were all related. The older of these William Jeffreys was born about 1800 and was married to a woman named Bezeba or Basheba.
Any info would be appreciated.

Comments:
I have several ancestors who started off in Culpeper, VA, migrated to Caswell, NC around 1784-87, then migrated on to Robertson Co., TN around 1788-1795. These families appear to have lived close to one another wherever they moved, and their children intermarried. Can anyone give me a reason for these migrations in and out of Caswell during this time frame? Were they seeking land, work, safety, or what? Did they always intend for Caswell to be a temporary stopping place, or did something happen to make them pick up their families and move on to Tennessee?? Any comments on this would be appreciated.
