Frances Sexton married Richard Brown. In the will of one Archelaus Sexton, of Halifax, North Carolina, he leaves land in Beaufort County, North Carolina, to John Brown, son of Richard Brown. That leads me to think that Frances Sexton was a sister to Archelaus.

Comments:
Your Anspach and Robert N King dont work. I am looking for information on Anna Maria Catharina (family says maiden name is Anspach)born 1677 married 1st Johann Jacob Peter Batdorf, and when he died in London waiting for the 1710 ships, she brought her 5 children on the ships to America. 3 children died probably at sea. My ancestor Catharina Elizabeth Batdorf born 1697 and her brother Martin Batdorf born 1698 and the mother survived. they went to Livingston Manor NY to work in the tar and pitch factory. Anna Maria Catharina remarried Johannes Zeller. We believe that Anna Maria Catharina 's last name is Anspach, and her brothers were Georg, Baltzer and Leonhart Anspach. In 1723, they built rafts and went down the Susquehanna River to Tulpehocken, Pa.

Finding my great grandmother and her Markee/Markey ancestors on this website brought tears to my eyes.

I'm so sorry that Patricia isn't here to accept my gratitude.
I have some bits of information that could be added to the site. Please let me know if they would be useful.

Comments:
I have found a whole line of Brownings in the south and I'm sure they are my line. My gr-grandmother was Mary Jane Browning born in Columbus, Georgia and died in Pickens county, Alabama by 1882. We have thought for years that her father was George Perry Browning, but find no proof to this info. She married John Smith Bonner in 1860 in Chatahoochie, Georgia. She died in Reform, Pickens, Alabama before 1882. The research done by professional said her father was James E. Browning, then back to Perry B Browning, to Nicholas Browning. It goes back into Virginia and South Carolina, I greatly need to make a definite connection her soon so I can get some sleep time.
I would love any information you may have, or that others can share.
THANKS SO MUCH

I am trying to see if I am related to your Katterman or Cotterman line. My 3great grandfather was lewis Cotterman. Born 1812 D 1888. Married Margaret Colburn & children William Andrew and Fanny. Lived a while in Sangamon Ill & died Osage Ks. I have his picture & newspaper obit and much info on him and wife. However have not been able to really nail down his parents. Saw yesterday he might be the son of Andreas Katterman and Magdalena Kilmer of Berks Co PA.They had a Lewis/Ludwig/Lutwich born in 1812. If you have any more on this Lewis would greatly appreciate hearing. Up to now this Cotterman line has been one of my hardest to crack.

I am the widow of Elmer Eugene Browning, ball turret gunner WWII, born Westville, IL. Sept 10, 1923 to Ralph Browning and Mary Jenkins. I was his 3rd wife and we wrote a small book together Elmer's Tune(about the ten man crew he flew with during WWII) and a biography of part of his life. His first wife was Helen DeVore who died after 50 years of marriage. Gene is buried at the Ga Vet Ntl Cemetary, Canton, GA., and after his death July 30, 2011, I moved back to TX where I was born and went to school. I met and married Gene in Douglasville, Ga. Sept 2007 when I moved from TX near my youngest son and met him at a senior center. We fell in love instantly. I knew why God had uprooted me and moved me to Georgia was to become his wife and help him put his little journal into book form. Elmer's Tune ..Google search: www.elmereugenebrowning.com
Interviews and the funeral home tht handled his death and much info is there. I hope I can find out about his ancestors. Thank You....

Earliest known ancestor Michael Stine, Jr
Time Frame b. Green Co. Pa. 1783
Comments:
We have family trees showing a Michael Stine, Sr. born Green Co PA about 1755 but we also have an oral tradition that says our original German ancestor in America was one Peter Stine (Stein) who was a Hessian soldier, taken prisoner during the Revolutionary War. I have been able to find such a Hessian who desserted the army while a prisoner in Winchester, VA. I have also been able to find a list of Hessian soldier veterans buried in Klinger Church cemetery in Schylkill Co. PA among whom is listed "Peter Stein." The problem is his arrival as Hessian in the US would have been around 1775-76 and this date doesn't go with the birth of Michael Stine, Sr. in 1755. Now through your site I have located a Peter Stein who came to the U.S. in 1748 and that would work with the birth of Michael Stine, Sr. in 1755 so I'm wondering if the oral tradition of the Hessian prisoner is true. If it is then Michael Sr. would probably not be true. Any thoughts?

Some of their sons ended up in Burlington, IA, outside current day Papillion, NE (where I reside) and then onto Imperial, NE. There you will fina a Civil War headstone for Enoch Sexson who moved to the Nebraska territory in 1866 and then moved to Western Nebraska in 1888 around the time Nebraska became a state.

William Markee b. 8 Aug 1824 in Ohio, moved to IL in 1847, m. Rachel Irwin 22 Aug 1843, "united with the Christian church at Eaton Ill., in 1898", died at home of Isaac Kellogg in this city last Saturday of typhoid pneumonia; funeral was conducted at Palestine Sunday by MN Beeman with burial in Palestine Cem, preceded in death by one child, survived by two sons and one dau

I would appreciate your thoughts.

Comments:
After searching for a long time, I recently found this information about my great, great grandfather John U. Chapman. I still need to find more information about him, his parents and his wife (Marinda Boyd), my great, great grandmother so I am able to research this family line back further in time.

My grandfather, my mother's (Lillian Isabel Chapman Pitlo's)father, was James Oscar Chapman who was born on 11 Sept. 1877 in Le Sueur Center, Minnesota and my grandmother was Laura Mabel Jenne who was born on 5 Dec. 1881 in Star Lake Township, Minnesota. Note: My Jenne family line currently goes back to about the 1200's in time.

James' father, my great grandfather was Oscar Henry Chapman who was born on 31 May 1848 in Shullsburg, Wisconsin and my great grandmother was Emma B. Purrington who was born in 1855 somewhere in Massachusetts.

Of course, then we have my great, great grandparents who were John U. and Marinda #Boyd# Chapman. Of course, John U. was born on 1 November 1813 in Albany County, New York and Marinda Boyd was born on 18 March 1826 somewhere in New York.

This historical information about John U. Chapman was found in two different books.

The first book is titled "History of the Minnesota Valley Including the Explorers and Pioneers of Minnesota by Rev. Edward D. Neill and History of the Sioux Massacre by Charles S. Bryant. This book was published by the North Star Publishing Company in 1882. This company is/was located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This is the historical information that is provided in this book on page 506:

In terms of Lexington Township, in 1864 a second Post Office was established called Union Centre on a farm belonging to J. U. Chapman, on the northeast quarter of section 32 with Mr. Chapman being appointed Postmaster holding this position until 1877. In that year an office was established at the new town and county seat, Le Sueur Centre, just one mile north and the Union Centre Post Office was discontinued. Thomas Sullivan was appointed to the new office but being unable to qualify, J. U. Chapman succeeded him, still holding the office.

Information found on page 507:

J. U. Chapman was born on 1 November 1813 in Albany County, New York. At the age of one year his parents died and he was left to the care of an aunt. After living in Canada for four or five years he went to Chicago, which was then known as Fort Dearborn. He there selected a life companion and with her settled in Jo Daviess County, Illinois. About five years later removed to Wisconsin; a few years after he came to Minnesota and became one of the pioneers of Le Sueur County. Being of an enterprising spirit he took the lead to organizing a school district and building roads and bridges; he drew up the petition to Congress for a mail route, and was appointed Postmaster at Union Centre. Was chairman of supervisors eight years, and justice of the peace about the same length of time. He is now occupying the office of Postmaster at Le Sueur Centre, and is the justice of the peace. Of eleven children, eight are living. Two sons were in the late Civil War; one was killed.

The second book is titled "Register of Officers and Agents, Civil, Military and Naval in the Service of the United States, on the Thirteenth of September, 1873".

This book shows John U. Chapman under the Post Office Department as the Postmaster of the Post Office located in Union Centre, Le Sueur County, Minnesota. His salary at the time was $4.00.

I am earnestly trying to find out who John U. Chapman's parents were so I can go back further in time. I have been unable to located them via census records etc.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you may have!

My father's name was Byran Ralph Browning and I THINK he was born in New Harmony, Indiana. He was an only child, married to Mary Jenkins Mt Carmel, IL., (possibly). My grandfather's name(I think) was Edward Browning, maybe born in Indiana. He left my grandmother, and don't know what happened to him. My father divorced my mother for adultry, and she married another man in Vermillion County, IL., and my father later married Florence Nelson, and she was the best thing ever happened to me. She had no children of her own. She loved me. I was a ball turret gunner hanging out of the bottom of a B-17 in WWII, 35 missions over Germany and enemy occupied Belgium, France & Holland. I am 85, and I know nothing about my family, where the Brownings came from. I know my father talked about Popular Bluff, Mo., and believe that some of them possibly came from there. I really do not know. I have published a book: "Elmer's Tune" about my part in the war.
Thanks,
Elmer Eugene Browning. Page 1 if you go into Google and type in elmer browning, the 1st 2 entries will be about me and my name. Also the Distinguished Flying Cross website which I received.

Very interesting research, thank you for sharing. I had no idea there was a Sexton family crest or that there were so many variations in the spelling of the name. There are eight Sexton children still living in Vancouver from my grandfather's line and numerous grandchildren.

Comments:
james markey(b1695) is my 5 great grandfather. his great grandson Thomas (b 1796)son of Thomas and Mary (Hart)
came to Oswestry, Shropshire, where I now live, in about 1831 and following in his father's footsteps became an Alehouse Keeper, running the Old Swan in Oswestry. His son Thomas (b1836) became a master tailor in Oswestry and one of his children (my Grandmother)Annie Helen married Charles Edward Roberts hence my mothers maiden name was Roberts. No descendants with the name of Markey now live in this area (as far as I know) although my Eldest brother, John, has Markey as his second forename.

Trying to find information on my maternal grandmother - her military records were in the section of the National Service Record Center that burned in the 1970s, so I have had a devil of a time finding anything. Her mother's name was Minnie Shophaus Cain, her dad was William Cain, and she had several siblings, one of whom was a much younger brother named Ellsworth Cain. Grandmother was an Army nurse in World War I, stationed at Fort Dix in New Jersey. She there met and married Harvey Fenimore, and moved to his home state of Delaware. She had two children, Harvey, Jr (born Feb 1921) and a daughter (my mother), Frances Louise Cain Fenimore (born July 21, 1923). She died from TB in March 1928, and is buried in Silverbrook Cemetery in Wilmington, Delaware

I'd be grateful for any help I could get to connect with any part of the family.

The Daniel Cain listed above is (apparently) the father of Thomas Cain from Kent Cty, DE who married Sealah (or Celia) Steelman. I think the link between our lines is with Daniel and his brothers (I assume he had brothers)or possibly even earlier. I wish I could trace the line back to the 7 brothers I've read about who supposedly immigrate to the US from the Ireland via the Isle of Man. My grandmother always said our line was from Ireland. I'm sure she is just passing along something that had been passed down for generations. I don't know if it's true or false, but I'm guessing there is probably something to it.

I just put your site in my Alexander County folder for further research in the area. On my father's paternal side I descend from Lewis King born abt 1813 and Elizabeth. They had a son named James King born about 1846 who was married at least twice. First he married Ellen Teague daughter of Isaac teague and Nancy. Ellen and James had William King born abt 1868 and Laura King born about 1870. Apparently they split up and James married Jane CAntrel from Polk County. William went with James and Laura stayed with Ellen and Ellen moved back in with her parents according 1880 census. James and Jane were in Patrick Co VA in 1880. I was just researching surnames and I descend from James and Jane. I was researching surnames in the area to try to find descendants of this family as I cannot find anything on this side of my family any furhter back. THe rest of me is all Rowan/Davidson County names that came from the Palatinate. I have some of the same gggggfathers 6 times and so does everybody else from there. From your site so far I got one lead that there was an Isaac Teague that was a JP. Now I need to see if he is the one that had Ellen.

Wilmoth B.3 Apr 1835, son Eldridge Garry Wilmoth (Ed) B. 25 Oct 1858, son-Arthur Earl (twin) Wilmoth B. 11 Mar. 1902. Arthur Earl Wilmoth was my Father. I was born when he was in his forties. I am my Father's second daughter.

I also have a copy of the Book "Wilmot-Wilmoth-Wilmeth" by Lillard Wilmoth. Published in 1940. I was extremely lucky to have a family member who had an original copy and loaned it to me so I could copy it. The book is a great reference book and has 374 pages - with most lines of the Wilmoth family traced. I believe that Edward Wilmoth was my ancester- He came to this country in 1635. Walter Wilmoth told me during phone conversations that he had traced it differently. I have not seen what he has done. I will check your link out to him. Could you be a cousin of mine somewhere down the line?

Comments:
Patricia,

Nice work on the Sextons.

My Sexton line arrives in Spartanburg Co., SC before 1768 when Thomas Sexton claims a headright grant of 300 acres on the Tyger River (probably himself, wife, and 3 children). I've not been able to tell from where he hails but suspect it may be Bedford Co., VA where I find a Thomas Sexton that appears on a 1758 Muster Roll of the Bedford Co., VA militia. Other Bedford Co., VA pioneers settled in Spartanburg Co., SC including a John Sexton and his wife Mary Ann Gilbert. Thus my reason for suspecting that our Thomas may be from Bedford and may also be related to this John Sexton.

I've been researching for years but have not yet gotten to the VA Archives - I will one day!

In the meantime, should you encounter a Thomas Sexton of VA and SC from this period, please let me know.

Kind Regards,

Jim Sexton

I am a direct descenddant of William and Leah. Thanks for correcting the Joseph Sexton theory. I've always felt this was wrong. Do you know if Leah is descended from the Ferree family of Lancaste Co. PA? I sometime see her listed a Leah Virginia Ferree. William died 31 Dec 1829 in Corbin, Whitley,KY. Leah went on to Indiana when her children did and died 18 Aug 1839 at Hobbieville, Greene, Indiana. She MAY have been buried in the Storm Cemetery there.

Hi Pat,

I see you everywhere on the Internet re: the Markee's. Until yesterday our family has believed the "James in the Barrel" legend. My line goes back to James via my father Richard Churchill Markee, his father, Walter Montgomery Markee, his father, Robert Cook Markee, his father James Markee/Rhoda Johnson, his father James Markee from Gloucester. How far back have you gone with the Markey line? Beyond James & Mary Read? Are you stuck there?

In 1967 I received a book of the descendants of William and James in America. It was compiled by Vernard E. Sherman from LaCross, Wis. Are you familiar with it? It probably has over 1000 names...but no informtion re: the Markey roots in England.

I am extremely interested in discovering more re: the Markey's in England. Can you give me any help?

Hi there. I have a question about #39 James Chapman and Jane Hoyle.

According to your chronology Jane would have been bearing children into nearly her sixtieth year, which is most unlikely. Do you have a source for this?

The reason I am asking is that there is another website that has Alexander Chapman as the illegitimate son of Margaret Chapman (whom you have as his older sister by sixteen years) and gggGrandfather Noah Hudson.

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hudsonfiles/WC01/WC01_070.HTM

Do you have any corroborating data for your chronology? Thanks

Hi,

My name is Paul Stewart. I have in my possession my great grandmother's old autobiography that she wrote as a very old lady in the 1950s. In it, she details all her early childhood as well as being a pioneer from Indiana to Kansas in 1876. Along the way she says our family met up with and travelled with a very nice family by the name of Markee. She says there were eight in all. Once the two families got the the KS/MO border (after many months of travelling together) they parted company- my family going on to Wichita, the Markees going to the Topeka area.

Ring any bells? If so, I'll copy what my g grandmother worte for you.

Im not sure, if i do not sure of who Thomas Capes parents were. ALL the settlers from the area he lived and his family lived and still do came from Virginia, and Nc. some coming by the way of Georgia.
Im told that he was one of five brothers, and my great uncles always said our family came from co clare,Ireland, Limerick.
Upon looking at alot of sexton pictures on here i sure see alot of simularities between my father and his father.

Great grandfather emigrated to states from Co Monaghan in early 1880's. About 16 whe he arrived, came with younger brother Patrick and sister Mary. They were orphaned. Settled in Dover, NH (many Irish in this community, especially from the Armagh and Monaghan counties). Married Ann Regan and settled in Manchester, NH. Mary married and stayed in Dover. After being invloved in a punch up with a fella, and mistakenly thinking he killed the bloke, which he had not, Patrick fled Dover.. Last sighting was in NYNY.

Curious if anyone may know of a Patrick Markey, orginally from NH, who lived in the NY area.

The name Markee and Markey was oringally Marquis, French huganotes. Exscaped to England during the relious prosicutions between 1400 and 1500.

William and James came to the United States in 1756 or around there. Served in the contental army during the American revalution.

Then bought land in Viriginia, later moved to Tippy Canoe, Ohio. And from there to Wisconsin in the 1800's.

From Wisconsin the desendants migrated out to other parts of the Untied States.

The spelling Markee and Markey are both conected to our knowlegde.

Earliest known ancestor Thomas Sexton
Time Frame Spartanburg Co., SC ca. 1768
Comments:
Patricia,

I've worked for a number of years piecing together descendants of my branch of the Sextons.
(see http://www.psi-sc.com/genealogy/sexton )

My earliest Sexton is a Thomas Sexton who arrives in SC and claims a grant of land on the Tyger River in what later became Spartanburg County. He received 300 acres (100 for him and 200 for his dependents). I've not found any evidence in the SC Archives regarding where he may have originated.

I hope to begin the search in NC, VA etc. for this Thomas Sexton soon. A interesting coincidence, if true, is the John Sexton and Mary Ann Gilbert spent time in Spartanburg Co., SC before moving west. Mary Ann Gilber has ties to Bedford Co., VA. Finally, I found a militia roster from 1758 listing a Thomas Sexton. A few clues to start...

In your work, have you seen any reference to a Thomas Sexton among the VA Sextons. He would probably have been born prior to at least 1750 (based on his arrival in SC) or perhaps the 1740's.

Regards,

Jim Sexton
Cayce, SC

It's been a long while since I've worked on genealogy, but I thought that I had found a list of Wesley's siblings that seemed to have matched up with the names you have listed for the children of Margaret Markee and William Mills. Is there any chance that Margaret and William may have had more children that what you have listed, and do you by any chance have anything on my Wesley Mills?

My grandfather (86) has a letter from his father (Thomas Chapman) written in 1950 before his death. He states in the letter that he was in posession of the Chapman Family bible, and had lent it to a priest at an unknown church in CT. This priest was doing research of the chapman family. The letter references family members that he had spoken to that remember Johnny Chapman. Anyway, the bible was never returned, but supposedly can prove the lineage you seek back the original arrival in the mid 1600's in MA, to where the family originaly settled in Easter MA and Rhode Island before dispersing to VI, OH, and Upstate NY.

In order to find a connection with your line, I would need to know who the parents of your John (1) are. My Brownings came to this country in the mid-1600's, settling in Virginia and Maryland. As best I have been able to tell, they were fairly well based in Virginia until they started migrating west and south in the mid-1700's. Most of the information I have in on the southern line of the Browning family. My direct line starts in Virginia, then moves to North Carolina, South Carlina, Georgia, Oklahoma, and on to Texas. You have some great information here. And there could be a "Cousin" connection. We are always looking for living cousins. Thanks. DD

estate, real and personal, during her widowhood, for the support of my son,
John Fred, till he is of age, when he is to receive 1/2 and the other half
after the death of my wife. If he should happen to die, then I leave my
estate to my brother, Henry Fred, and my sister, Elizabeth Fred. I make my
wife Martha, and my kinsman, Simon Johnson, of New York, Esq., executors.

Comments:
On Descendants of Unknown Sexton;
Generation 2. (4) William Sexton,it states that grandson Benjamin Swift Sexson says "there were 3 older children, ISAAC, Archibald and Olivia Jane belonged to him (William)"

But then at the end of the descendants list under notes for Enoch Sexton, #84 on your list, there is a note about Enoch Sexton son of Isaac born in Ky married to Phebe Stansberry and lived in Shelby Co. See Chadwick's History of Shelby Co. pg. 956"

Then The Enoch Sexton married to Sarah Arwine was born in VA. (see Brown Co. IN Census 1850 & 1860) Believe he was the middle son of Benjamin & Nancy Taylor.

From my family I understand the lineage to run this way;
Both Enoch's are in my lineage!


My relative Don Benton wrote a compliation of SEXTON history. In it he states that William SEXTON is his 4th great grandfather then,

>Enoch Sexton & Phebe Stansberry then>
Isaac Sexton & Hannah Morgan then>
Enoch Sexton & Sarah Arwine then >
(for me > David Sexton & 3rd wife Elizabeth Fleming Hunnicutt then>
Phoebe Katherine Sexton & 2nd husband Pleasant Mitchell Lucas then >
Minnie Mae Lucas & Sylvester Ulysses Teague then >
Jewel Katherine Teague & 1st husb., Lonnie Franklin Whitehead then >
Patricia Jean Whitehead & Charles Jackson Kaltenbach (legal father not biological) then me> Theresa Weddell

Since you or Willis thinks Benjamine Sexton & Nancy Taylor Sexton are the parents of "my" Enoch Sexton (& wife Sarah Arwine. Is there any proof to link them together fo DAR papers?
Any help is appreciated.

I have proven, with documents,
from myself in reverse;
my mother Patricia Jean Whitehead
my grandmother, Jewel Katherine Teague Whitehead
my great grandmother, Minnie Mae Lucas Teague
my great great grandmother, Phoebe Katherine SEXTON-East-Lucas
my 3rd great grandfather, David S. Sexton & 3rd wife, Elizabeth Fleming Hunnicutt,
my 4th great grandfather, Enoch SEXTON & Sarah Arwine
my 5th great grandfather, Isaac SEXTON & Hannah Morgan

"Proof" of Isaac SEXTON & Phebe Stansberry is (1)a history printed in a book, not sure which book but it must be Shelby Co, IN since so many references are made to that county. I just have a copy of the article, no source info on page! Then, (2) Phebe's Will,Shelby Co.IN , In Bk. 1 pp. 521-3, dated Aug. 25, 1875 she names her daughter's and son's, Isaac being one.
"Proof" of Isaac SEXTON & Hanna Morgan, (1)Isaac's complete record Probate Book C. page 559, he names his son Enoch.
That is where my proof stops.
I need to connect Isaac SEXTON & Phebe Stansberry Sexton to Isaac's father. Who is Isaac Sexton's father?
Or is this ALL messed up?
Please help!!

I have all validated info on the Sexton's who came to Texas.
I think I have the complete info on Enoch Sexton's children starting with #158 David S. Sexton and down. Almost all of those came to Texas. I have info on all of them.

Hi there Patricia, I have uploaded some photo's if of some of my descendents. The oldest photo that I have are of Louis Fred and wife son of Jacob Fred, I have a few from them on down if you'd like. Lisa, my significant other is putting together a permenant web site and we would very much like to link to yours if that's okay.

As well, I've since moved to North Carolina from Texas so my new e-mail address is above if you can correct it here on your page I'd appreciate it a whole bunch. Hopefully this is the last e-mail change I'll ever have.

Thanks and I love your site.
Kim

found your site while looking around and figured I'd put something up. Fred is such an unusual last name...can't be too many different lines.

Hello. I just found your site a few minutes ago and I am hoping to find that our lines connect. I am trying to find information on William Sexson who married Lucretia Turley in Iowa in 1839. They had a son named Enoch, which is an uncommon name, so I am thinking we may tie in some how. I'll study over your site a little more...do you know anything about Lucretia Turley?
