The origins of the Miles Nash families that appeared in DeKalb County Georgia in the 1800s (shown above) is a somewhat muddled story. It is generally held that Miles Nash (1770-1840) recovered the confiscated land in Spartanburg South Carolina of his Tory father Edward Nash in the 1790s. This loyalist Edward Nash (bc 1725?-1783 SC?) is variously assumed to have been murdered by the victorious patriots at the end of the American Revolution in 1783 as part of the back country of South Carolina's notorious Whig retributions, revenge and punishments meeded out to those who has supported the British crown during the revolution.

This website attempts to document what is known about this relationship between the loyalist Edward Nash, his origins, his sons, his lands and his legacy. Most of this informaton borders on conjecture and guesswork. There are some vital records that provided facts that support portions of the generally accepted story of the Nash family origins. I will attempt to organize the factual data in temporal order and compare it to the genealogies that have been derived from these fragmented pieces.

The Edward Nash Chronology

Below are the documents that track Edward Nash from 1758 until 1775. During this seventeen year period. Edward is: married in Pennsylvania; moves to Orange North Carolina; and then relocates to South Carolina.

  • 1758 -- Edward's Marriage in Pennsylvania to Elizabeth Miles

    This site shows a marriage in Lancaster Pennsylvania:

    Edward Nash to Elizabeth Miles 2 Jun 1758

  • 1759 -- Witness Orange County North Carolina -- first record in North Carolina

    Will of Mary Ann Currie, Sept 1759, ...sons John, James; daus Margaret, Mary. Executors: sons John and James. Witnesses: Edward Nash (see below)

  • 1760 -- Edward Nash and William Miles survey land in Orange NC

    Michael Dickson was born about 1726 in probably Virginia. He was recorded as owning land on February 2, 1761 in Orange County, North Carolina...This property was surveyed on 31 May, 1760 by William Miles and Edward Nash. (See this detail below; see this source)

  • 1762 -- Edward Nash purchases land in Orange NC

    Edward buys 300 acres of land from Michael Dickson in Orange NC. (see detail below)

  • 1764

    Orange County Court Minutes, [805]-248, November Term 1764: Ordered that a Road be laid out the best and most convenient way to Granville line near DAVID EMBREYS old place from HUGH BARNETT'S that leads to ROSTERS ferry by the following Jury towit: ROBERT MCFARLAND JUNR., ROBERT MCFARLAND SENR., WILLIAM HAWKINS, HUGH BARNETT, WILLIAM CHAMBERS, BURGES HARRELSON, PAUL HARRELSON, WILLIAM BARNETT, J. HARLEY, JOHN LONG, JOHN DOUGLASS & MOSES WALKER, and that the same Jury lay out a Norther (sic) Road from that near MAYO'S and LAWRENCE RAMBO'S to Hico near JOHN PRYOR'S Esqr. and that the following hands assist in opening the said Roads towit: WILLIAM MILES, THOMAS BARNETT, HENRY WILLICE, GILES TUCKEY, JAMES CAVANAUGH, BENJN.

(Source: Haun, Orange County, North Carolina, Court Minutes, 1762-1766, Book II, p.71)21

  • 1771 -- Edward Appears on a Petition for a New County

    Edward Nash, William Miles, Senior and William Miles, Junior of Orange NC all signed a 1771 petition to Govenor Josiah Martin for the formation of a new county (later to be Caswell NC). (see below)

  • October 1775 -- Edward "acquires" land in Spartanburg South Carolina

    According to Sara Mary Nash's book, after 13 years Edward "acquires" 300 acres of South Carolina lands in Spartanburg on Two Mile Creek on the Enoree River from SC resident William Sargent. See detail below

  • November 1775 -- Edward "disposes" of his Orange County NC land

    According to Sara Mary Nash's book, after 13 years Edward disposes of his Orange NC 300 acres on Adam's Creek he purcashed from Michael Dickson deeding it to William Sargent -- now of Orange NC. Wife Elizabeth afixes her seal, Josiah Dickson (brother of Michael was a witness). See detail below

Clearly these last two land transactions are a trade between Edward Nash and William Sargent -- 300 acres in Orange NC for 300 acres in Spartanburg SC. No consideration (money) is mentioned in the transactions. This transaction is important in connecting this Edward Nash to his son Mile Nash after the Revolutionary War.

So -- prior to the revolution -- there exists a reasonable paper trail: from Edward Nash and Elizabeth Miles marriage in 1758 in Lancaster Pennsylvania, through Orange County North Carolina, to Two Mile Creek in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Events, locations and real estate transaction data become extremely scarce during the revolution. Military service data is even more problematic. There is, however, some potential information on the family. Three areas of interest emerge that have realistic data to examine:

  1. Did Edward Nash serve in British army as family lore says?

    Records for British Loyalist service in the American Revolution are now readily accessible. Looking for "Edward Nash", two possible soldiers can be found in Murtie June Clark's three volumes Loyalists in the Southern Campaign of the Revolutionary War:

      ...Private Edward Nash, prisoner with the rebels

    The two "Edward Nash" entries are quite different. The first (on the left of the table above) shows two Nash brothers -- John and Edward serving relatively continuously from June 1780 until December 1782 (two and half years). Their service in the 96th district militias (first the Spartanburg Militia, then the Little River Militia) indicates that they were from the Spartanburg area where Edward Nash obtained land in 1775. The last entry that shows two refugees in Charleston in August 1782: Mrs. Elizabeth Nash and Elizabeth Mills ("widow" -- more on this later). Item #9 shows that Elizabeth Nash received the pay of here two sick sons: John and Edward in 1782. I would infer from these entries that these are the sons of Edward Nash and Elizabeth Miles and do not represent Edward Nash (Senior's) service.

    The second entry (column two) shows a Sgt. Edward Nash in the loyalist Prince of Wales American Regiment -- aka PWAR (see this) from 1781 until 1783. He is always listed as a prisoner with the rebels. His service overlaps the Edward Nash service dates shown in column 1 (i.e., they could not be the same person). This regiment was NOT raised in South Carolina. The Govenor of the Bahamas, Monfort Browne, was arrested by the Amerian Navy in 1776 and Browne was placed under house arrest in Connecticut. Here he became acquainted with many loyalists and proposed to raise a brigade of 4,000 men [a difficult task while under house arrest]. His proposal came to the attention of British General Howe and as a result Browne was exchanged in August 1776. He was commissioned a brigadier general in 1777. By April the regiment numbered 520 troops recruited from New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. After service in New England (losing 200 men), the Prince of Wales American regiment's 443 soldiers left in 1778 for Rhode Island where it remained for a year. They returned to New York and in March 1780, 292 soldiers left for the campaign in South Carolina. The unit participated in the seige of Charleston (March 29-May 12 1780). The unit was decimated at the battle of Hanging Rock, South Carolina in August 1780. The unit fought at the Battle of Camden in Auguest 1780 and then garrisoned in Charleston. By May of 1781, the unit reported: "Prisoners with the Enemy, taken since the Siege of Charlestown: 6 sergeants, 3 corporals, 26 privates" -- one of which must be the Sgt. Edward Nash listed above. Some of the soldiers had been detailed to Banastre Tarlton's unit and were at the Battle of Cowpens (Jan 17, 1781) where many prisoners were taken.

    What conclusion can be made from these two sets of military records? First I think it unlikely that the Sgt. Edward Nash in the Prince of Wales American regiment is the Edward Nash who married Elizabeth Miles and lived in Spartanburg SC. If he was married in 1758 in Pennsylvania he must have been born no later than 1740 making him at least 40 by the 1780 time frame. Further, how likely was a landowner in the South Carolina up country to become a sergeant in a New England Loyalist unit that arrived in South Carolina in early 1780? His age and geography make his service in the PWAR a slim possibility. I also think the two loyalist soldiers shown above in the loyalist 96th Militias are his sons.

  2. What happened to Edward Nash at the end of the war?

    Phil Norfleet's website Whig Militia Commanders' Enemies Lists of 1783 discusses the retribution exacted on the loyalist of the South Carolina up-country at the end of the revolution:

    "...the South Carolina Fifth General Assembly passed Ordinance No. 1189 entitled Disposing Of The Estates Of Certain Persons, Subjects And Adherents Of The British Government; And For Other Purposes Therein Mentioned.

    According to this ordinance, the real and personal property of former citizens who had chosen to join the British were vested in the Commissioners of Forfeited Estates. It was a comprehensive act, but had no lists of names. The commanding officers of the State's militia regiments ware instructed, when asked by the commissioners, to make lists of those men who had joined the British. Men so identified had six months from the end of the legislative session to return to the State for trial. Ten (10) militia commanders made returns, resulting in a total of 689 names. These returns constitute the largest listing of Loyalists/Tories ever promulgated by the Whig Government of South Carolina...

    A total of 689 names were provided in the returns, that were received from the ten (10) militia commanders as follows:...

    6. Colonel Benjamin Roebuck - 94 Names...

    Nash, Edward..."

    Sara Mary Nash's vesion of this story is more detailed. She says:

    "In the South Carolina Department of Archives, among other such reports to Governor John Rutledge is that of Col. Benjamin Roebuck, dated May 22, 1783, 'A List of those men who adhered to the British Government to wit those who are now acting with them as also those who died in there service belonging to the Spartanburg regiment. Commanded by Col. Benjamin Roebuck.' The name of Edward Nash appears therein, first as 'living' (25 names), then crosssed off and entered as 'dead' (48 names). On the back of the document is noted: 'Return of Persons former citizens of this state Spartan district who has adhered to the British Government and gone off with the enemy or died in their service'." (see Sara Mary Nash, pg 101)

    The central conclusion here is that Edward Nash is dead by 1783.

    The details are not known but one may surmise that like many loyalists he sufferred the wrath of the patriots -- losing both his land and his life. His son Miles Nash will at least recover the land (see below) in 1792.

  3. The Death of Capt. William Miles

    One of the connective threads of the Edward Nash story is Sara Mary Nash's tale of the death of Capt. William Miles -- perhaps the brother-in-law of Edward Nash (see for example: (a) the 1771 petition signed by Edward Nash and father/son William Miles; (b) the 1758 marriage of Edward Nash to Elizabeth Miles; and (c) the 1760 survey by Edward and William Miles of Michael Dickson's land -- above). Capt. William Miles is shown as a Captain in the First Spartanburg Regiment of South Carolina Militia, established in January 1777. According to Sara Mary Nash:

    "...Capt. William Miles named Edward Nash (with Joseph Barnett) executor of his nuncupative will [which means: delivered orally to witnesses rather than written] as he lay dying on Dec 4 1779 (96th District Will, Box 65, Pkg 1585, Abbeville Courthouse, SC) Witnesses were William Nash [??? Doesn't Sara really mean Edward ???], Ann Hendricks, Joseph Barnett. Legatees were wife Sarah, daughters Nicey and Lucy, an unborn child. William Miles, Sr. was to manage the plantation" (see Sara Mary Nash, Chapter X, pages 100-101)

    Further, Sarah Mary Nash reports on page 101:

    "On March 2, 1780 Agnes Morse and Isaac Hendricks personally appeared before John Pearson J.P. and declared on oath that they were with Capt. William Miles in his last moments, that he being shot by a Tory, that he continued in his senses long enough as he could speak as he gave his verball will. The will was proved June 14 1783, a note on the back saying, 'One of the executors are dead and the other refuseth the executorship'. " (see Sara Mary Nash, Chapter X, pg 101)

    In Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution. Volume II, K-Z by Bobby Gilmer Moss:

    "Miles, William

    He served under Col. Thomas and was killed by Tories" (see Dollar, Reuben)

    Reuben Dollar's entry in Vol. I says:

    "While residing in Spartanburg District, he served in the Spartan Rangers under Captain William Miles and Col. Thomas. At one time he was stationed at Prince's Fort. After Miles was killed in a skirmish with the Tories, he became an orderly sergeant under Capt. Mason Foley..."

    Two web documents among the Abbeville SC Equity Records, abstracted by Kristen D. Randle records refer to William Miles in 1796 petitions that confirm this detail:

    1. Miles, Wm. dec[eased] -- father of Wm. Miles: Wm Miles St. Jr.(dec) had two daughters, Lucy and Nicey Miles, wf Nathaniel Power. Wills of both William and Sarah 2 mile creek. Wit Joseph Bernett and Ann Hendrix

      This says of Nathaniel Power:

      "Nancy (Morse) Power married Nathaniel Power in South Carolina. Nancy appears to have died there prior to 1800. In 1797 Nathaniel sold property in Spartanburg County, SC that was signed by his wife, Nancy. In 1800 Nathaniel sold land and his wife was listed as Unicey, daughter of William Miles.[Spartanburg County, SC DeedBook G, p80-81.] Nathaniel bought land in Madison County, AL in 1809, the same year that Benjamin Wofford Sr. and his sons, Benjamin Jr., and Joseph, and Benjamin Bucy were there. However, Nathanial was still in Laurens County in 1810. In 1814, 1815, and 1816 he bought more land in Alabama and apparently moved to Madison County, AL about that time."

      [Note that Benjamin Wofford marries the other daughter -- Lucy -- of the deceased Wiliiam Miles -- below]

    2. Wofford, Benj jr. Pennington, John et al -- Benj + Lucy (fmrly Miles, daughter of Wm Miles dec 1779) Spartanburg. Pennington wf, Sally (Miles - wid of Wm Miles.)

      [note this Benjamin Wofford was a Captain in Zacariah Bibb's loyalist militia unit -- see above]
      [note that John Pennington marries William Miles widow -- Sally (though it may be Sara as on will above]

    The conclusions can be drawn about this relative to Edward Nash are limited. It is still conjecture -- but a strong one -- that Capt. William Miles was a likely brother-in-law of Edward Nash. Thus, Edward's wife Elizabeth was the daughter of William Miles Senior. Thus as Sara Mary Nash notes, the family name "Miles" begins to appear in the descendants of Edward Nash.


Locating the Land of Edward Nash -- on Two Mile Creek, Spartanburg SC

The area near the 300 acres of land referenced (above and below) originally swapped by Edward Nash with William Sargent can generally be located on the map of Spartanburg County South Carolina compiled in 1869 by Sloan and Epton's Survey (see the full county map at the Spartanburg SC GenWeb site here). A portion of the map is show below.

I can suppose this is the location of Edward Nash's land (or at least it is nearby) Miles Nash (Edward's son) sold land to the Langston family twice. See (1) the 1814 transaction below: "...Miles Nash sold to James Langford, Jr. 8 1/2 acres, part of his home tract, adjoining James Langford Sr." and (2) the 1826 transaction below: "...the tract whereon I now live,' granted to Daniel Mooring in 1773, adjoining James Langford, Wm Langford...".

The Lanford (Langford or Lankford) location is difficult to identify -- specifically in 1869 as there are 108 Lanford names listed in the 1860 Spartanburg Census in the southern division. This site by Dan Singleton states that James Lanford was a Virginia native who settled in Spartanburg County SC on "Two Mile Creek near Antioch Church". This church is located at the intersection of SC Highway 221 and "Two Mile Creek Road". This "Two Mile Creek Road (SC State Road S-42-2267) terminates at the intersection (5) shown above -- "Mountain Shoals Road" (SC State Road S-42-2267) and SC 146 (Hobbysville Road on the old map). You can search for the three strings: "Antioch Church" , Enoree , "South Carolina" -- on Google maps and find it.


Miles Nash (1770 Orange NC-1940 Conway AR) and Elizabeth Willis Chronology

After the death of Edward Nash in 1783, no data surfaces until son Miles Nash reclaims his father's land in 1792.

Nine document are relevant to Miles Nash and many to the Spartanburg lands of Edward Nash:

 

  1. 1791 – witness

    George Scissel to Samuel Busey land on Buffaloe’s Cr of Enoree River part of grant to Benjamin Busey who sold to George Scissel. Witness Joseph Barnett, Miles Nash and James Lanford.

  2. Oct 1775 (1792)

    October 1775 deed where Edward Nash "acquires" his South Carolina land on Two Mile Creek in a swap with William Sargent is NOT recorded until 1792 -- nine years after Edward's death. Specifically the detail says:

    "Spartanburg DeedBook C, page 55-58, October 10/11 1775, recorded Oct 2 1792." See detail below

  3. Feb 1795 -- land sale

    10 Feb 1795 Miles NASH (Spartanburg) to James LANFORD (same) for 40 pounds sterling sold 125 acres on Two Mile Creek of Enoree R., upper part of grant Jan. 20, 1773 to Daniel MOORING who sold to William SARGENT who sold to Edward NASH who sold to Miles MEDFORD. Signed: Miles NASH Wit: Joseph BARNETT, James LANFORD, Jr. and Thomas MEDFORD. Wit. oath May 13, 1801 Joseph BARNETT to John DEAN
    Rec. November 11, 1816.
    Book P
    p. 142-143

    This has Miles Nash recovering the 300 acres on Two Mile Creek. I don't understand the "Edward NASH who sold to Miles MEDFORD" line. This would imply that Edward sold the land to Medford. It doesn't say how Miles Nash got it ("part of grant" -- the 300 acres?) back.

  4. Nov 24, 1795 -- witness

    DEED Book H pp 166-168 Sarah Barnett (Hancock Co, Ga) to John Leatherwood (Spartanburgh) for 40L Sterling sold 100 acres on branch of Two Mile Creek of Enoree River.

Wit: oath Mar 20, 1802 Joseph Barnett to John Dean Rec Jun 11, 1802

  5. 1811 -- Witness – Wm Shackelford to James Crow, land on water of James Cr of Tyger River, border Wm Peas on and Paul Castleberry. Witness John Smith Jr. and Miles Nash.

  6. March 1814 -- land sale

    March 28, 1814. Miles Nash sold to James Langford, Jr. 8 1/2 acres, part of his home tract, adjoining James Langford Sr. Wit: John Langford, Joseph Barnett, John Dean, J.P. (Bk. P pg 19.)

  7. Nov 14, 1814 -- witness

    On 14 November 1814 Spencer Bobo signed a letter of obligation in Spartanburg County to Absolem Bobo for $2000.00 using as collateral "all of that plantation and tract of land ...two hundred and sixty one acres more or less joing Sarah Freeman and Thomas Farrow John Leatherwood and West Miles Nash.

  8. 1815 – mentioned

On Feb 17, 1817 Margaret Spears petitioned the court at Laurens Courthous to show husband David Spears died intestate and had 200 acres in Spartanburg Dist sold by sheriff Thomas Leatherwood and wife to David Spears and David recovered from John Terry. Land could not be divided so it was sold due to commissioner’s judgement. Witness Caleb Woodruff and William Terry. Oath Caleb Woodruff to Starling Tucker.

By 1826 Miles has moved to DeKalb County Georgia with all his children -- except eldest son Dr. (Rev.) Miles Nash who removed to Halifax NC (who appears on the 1830 Halifax NC census -- see Miles' son Miles data below).

We do NOT find Miles Nash on the 1830 census. However, his sons appear as "Knash" on the 1830 DeKalb Census: William Knash and Edward Knash appear adjacent (pg 67) on the census and curiously TWO Larkin Nash names appear adjacent (pg 41). [on ancestry.com this is indexed as "Kash")

There are 4 sons shown in their twenties. Of the six known sons, the younger two John (bc 1816 who would be 14 and Miles Patillo bc 1822 who would be 8) -- might appear with their older brothers. The three older sons (Larkin, William and Edward all born in the decade of 1800-1810). So who is the extra son "Larkin"? And where is Miles?

Miles does appear on the 1840 Conway Arkansas census with son Edward Lee Nash (at least there is a male of the right age with Edward Lee):

After this entry I have no more data on Miles Nash.

Miles Nash and Elizabeth Willis had at least the following 6 children:

  1. Reverend (Dr.) Miles Nash (1802 SC - 1873 FL) m 1824 Martha Rebecca Whitaker


    Dr. (Rev.) Miles Nash
    Physician, minister and postmaster
    Tallahassee Florida
     
    The only son of Miles Nash who did not move to Georgia in the early 1820s was the eldest son Miles. The marriage of Miles Nash to Rebecca Whitaker was recorded in a Raleigh NC newpaper (see this)..." On the 6th instan., at the seat of Gen. Eli B. Whitaker, in Halifax county, Mr Miles Nash, from Norfolk VA, to Miss Rebecca Whitaker, Fri May 24, 1824

    The Reverend Miles Nash was in Halifax County NC performing marriages in 1830 (see this). The History of Methodist Reform, Synoptical of General Methodism, 1703-1898 (here) by Edward Jacob Drinkhouse, pg 235 shows the Rev. Miles Nash of Halifax County NC was one of 8 ministers who were expelled for their reform principles. Page 336 of the same book shows the 1850 delegates to the Fifth General Conference from Florida are:

    Dr. M. Nash and R. Whitaker

    A physician Miles Nash (b NC age 50 in 1850) appears on the Leon County FL census. Based on the census below, Miles moved to Florida between 1843 and 1847. Richard Henry Whitaker was the son of North Carolina militia General Eli Benton Whitaker (1771 Enfield NC-1841 Leon FL) and Martha Branch (1771-1804). Richard Whitaker (1801-1855) married Virginia Taylor about 1832 (see this). Martha Rebecca Whitaker -- wife of Rev (Dr.) Miles Nash is also likely the daughter of General Eli Benton Whitaker and Martha Branch (see this) and brother of Richard Whitaker.

    "The Whitaker, Branch, and Bradford families are three of the oldest of Leon County and are interrelated by a number of marriages. They all belonged to the antebellum plantation society and continued to be political, cultural, and social leaders into the twentieth century. The Whitakers owned a plantation about seven miles out the Centerville Road (later a part of Welaunee Plantation). Patriarch of the family, Eli Benton Whitaker married Martha Branch, daughter of John Branch, who established Live Oak Plantation north of Tallahassee. Bradford ties to the Branches are strong due to the marriage of Lt. Col. John Branch to Rebecca Bradford." See this

    The original house was built by Dr. Miles Nash. Dr. Nash was one of the earliest post masters. This building served as Tallahassee's post office. It stood at 509 N. Monroe Street on the northeast corner of Monroe and Park Avenue. The post office was later converted into a residence. Mr. Julius Diamond and his family lived there many years. Purchased by Theo Proctor and moved to its present position on north Monroe Street.

    Children of Dr. Miles Nash and Rebecca Whitaker:

    1. Dr. Miles H Nash (1834 VA-1907 NJ)


      Dr. Miles Henry Nash

      from Florida State Library and Archives

      Dr. Miles Henry Nash appears On 1850 and 1860 censuses with father in Tallahasse (see above)

      Married 1862 Isabelle Randolph, daughter of Thomas Peter Randolph (1793 Wilkes GA - 1847 Gadsden FL) and Jacinta Jessie McIntosh (1795 Savannah GA -1870 Gadsden FL) (dau of James McIntosh), and was the grandaughter of Richard Randolph and Dorothy Napier. Thomas P. Randolph was in the Florida Territory 1840 census.

      Dr. Miles Nash was a surgeon in the Civil War (see this).

      From Confederate Hospitals On The Move: Samuel H. Stout and the Army of Tennessee by Glenna R. Schroeder-Lein:

      "The Confederate 'Flewellen Hospital' began in Cleveland Tennessee in August 1863 as the "Reception Hospital". It moved on August 24 1863 where it was reorganized and named for the field medical director, E. A. Flewellen Flewellen -- originally surgeon of the 5th Georgia Infantry, appointed Medical Director of the Department and Army of Tennessee Dec 23, 1862 (see this). Surgeon Miles H. Nash, a Floridian who had served in the Catoosa Springs Hospital since 1862, took charge of the new facilities. In December 1863, Nash and one assistant surgeon found their hospital crowded with 212 patients, which gave them considerably more work than the official ratio of seventy patients per doctor... the hospital was removed to south of Atlanta to Barnesville where it remained during the summer of 1864.

      In early October Stout ordered the Flewellen Hospital to Columbus Georgia, from which on October 13 General Hood ordered the hospital to Opelika Alabama. On November 18 Nash received instructions to move his hospital to Tuscumbia Alabama. Thus began his adventure in moving. The transportation promised for November 24 never arrived, and Nash finally had to take matters into his own hands. First he seized several railroad cars after they unloaded supplies at Opelika and five days later he finally got them attached to a passing train. The hospital staff and supplies arrived in Montgomery that evening.

      Transportation troubles were by no means over once the hospital arrived in Montgomery, however..."

      ...more on this story later...

      Prior to the Flewellen Hospital service shown below, Confederate hospitals on the move: Samuel H. Stout and the Army of Tennessee By Glenna R. Schroeder-Lein, says:

      "Surgeon Miles H. Nash, a Floridian who had served in the Catoosa Springs Hospital since December 1862..."

      Roster Of Medical Officers - Army Of Tennessee 1861-65 says:

      "NASH, MILES H., Surgeon, com'd to rank 22d Aug. '62. Dec. 31, '62, at Catoosa Springs, Ga. Aug. 23, '62, ordered to Gen. Hardee."

      This says Dr. Miles H Nash was a surgeon at the Thomaston Post Hospital.

    Children of William and Jeannete:

    1. Gideon (1824-

      I have found no specific data on this son.

    2. Francis M. Nash (1829-1904)

      Married Feb 1 1863 Jane Ann Thompson (1830-1902) daughter of Martin Thompson and brother of Richard Govan Thompson who married Lodecia Nash -- Francis Marion's sister.

      This says:

      Francis Marion Nash
      Private, Company H, 8th Regiment Georgia State Guards
      Born September 30, 1827.
      In 1863, the state asked for six-month volunteers, so on September 1, Nash enrolled as a private in the "Stone Mountain Guards, but was discharged on September 25, 1863. Nash married Jane Ann Thompson prior to 1872. He died on February 4, 1904.

      footnote.com says this of a F. M. Nash:

      1. enlisted Private Company H 8th Georgia Infantry (State Guards), Capt. Dent's compnay, "Stone Mountain Guard", muster in roll Aug 13 1863. Enrolled Aug 1 1863 by Capt. Dent for 6 months.
      2. Muster roll Sep 9-Dec 31 1863. Enlisted Aug 1 1863. D Company called into active service and pay commenced Sep 9 1863. Discharged Sep 25 1863

        A John Nash also enrolled in the 8th GA State Guards for six months -- was absent sick

      There is another Francis M Nash. www.footnote.com says this of a Francis M. Nash:

      • enlisted in Company E 7th Georgia May 29 1861, Decatur GA
      • appears on receipt roll for clothing Oct 25 1862

      • A James E Nash filed an affidavit that empowers James H. Nash of Richmond to receive benefits of the death of Francis M Nash, Feb 1863 as the father and legal heir of Francis M Nash.

        So this Francis M Nash is the son of James E Nash of Gwinnett County -- NOT of William Nash of Stone Mountain.

        First is a story about a custody case involving Isaac J. Nash and wife Hattie:


        Atlanta Constitution Nov. 8, 1914
         
        Then seven months later, there appears as the front page headline of the Atlanta Constitution of May 6, 1915 (See the original newspaper image at ancestry.com here for page 1 and here for page 3). Isaac J. Nash is incorrectly reported as "J.J. Nash". The story reads:

        ...continue in the next column to the right...

         

        ...continue in the left column below...

        ...continue in the next column to the right...

         

         

        Then nine days later in the Atlanta Constitution May 15, 1915

         

        By these accounts both Hattie's brother R.T. (Roy) Moore and her mother (Emma Nash Moore) sided with Hattie's husband Isaac J. Nash in this incident.

    5. Angeline C. (1836-

      m Thomas J. Thomas (1836-1891)

      "Thomas Jefferson Thomas was born May 17, 1836 in Georgia. On March 20, 1862, Thomas enrolled at Camp Bartow near Savannah in the “Murphey Guards,” receiving a $50 enlistment bounty. Two weeks later, he was transferred to the “McCullough Rifles.” Thomas was wounded July 1, 1863 at the battle of Gettysburg and captured on July 5, 1863 at South Mountain, Maryland during the retreat. He was first sent to Fort Delaware, Delaware, then transferred in October to Point Lookout military prison in Maryland. He was exchanged on February 18, 1865 and sent to Camp Lee in Richmond.

      Upon returning to Georgia, Thomas married Angeline C. Nash on June 1, 1865 in DeKalb County where he took up farming. Thereafter, the couple moved to Fulton County. Thomas died June 19, 1891 in Atlanta and is buried at Stone Mountain Cemetery, DeKalb Co. Ga. His original tombstone bore the following inscription from an 1832 hymn by Samuel Francis Smith:

      PEACEFUL BE THY SILENT SLUMBER,
      PEACEFUL IN THY GRAVE SO LONE;
      THOU NO MORE WILL JOIN OUR NUMBER
      THOU NO MORE OUR SONG WILL KNOW
      YET AGAIN WE HOPE TO MEET THEE
      WHEN THE DAY OF LIFE IS FLED;
      AND IN HEAVEN WITH JOY TO GREET THEE
      WHEN NO FAREWELL TEARS ARE SHED.

      In 1999, The Confederate Memorial Camp 1432 sponsored the placement of a Veteran’s Administration headstone to mark Thomas J. Thomas’s grave

      "Isaac Newton Nash
      Corporal, Company D, 38th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry
      Born June 6, 1843 in DeKalb County, Georgia.

      On March 1, 1862, Nash enlisted as a private. He was promoted to corporal in July 1862. A year later on July 1, 1863, he was wounded in the left hand by grape shot during the battle of Gettysburg. Put in the ambulance train, Nash was transported to the hospital in Winchester, Virginia where the gangrened hand was amputated three inches above the wrist. He was transferred to the 25th Georgia Battalion (Provost Guard) in Atlanta, but was given a certificate of total disability in February 1865. He married Indiana Camp on December 31, 1864 in DeKalb County.

      After the war, Nash attended Emory College, became a teacher, eventually took up farming, and served as DeKalb County tax collector. Nash joined the Clement A. Evans Camp 665 of the United Confederate Veterans and was active in veterans affairs, helping many veterans and widows apply for and receive Georgia Confederate pensions. The United Daughters of the Confederacy awarded him the Southern Cross of Honor. Nash died November 29, 1913."

      this says he married Indiana Camp

      Subject: [CAMP-L] Indiana Camp (d/o Andrew) m. Isaac N. Nash Ga late 1800's

      I have just come across some information that may be helpful to somebody. It is in a carbon copy of a letter I wrote to a woman named Liz in 1979. How I wish I had put an inside address so I would know who she is! Apparently I was responding to some Camp information she had sent me. She said Isaac Newton Nash married Indiana Camp (who was a baby on 1850 census). She said Indiana's mother is Catherine Harmon and her father is Andrew Camp. On Worldconnect I see Barbara has this family. They are on 1850 DeKalb Co. Ga Census the household following William Kemp or Camp, wife Mary, children Martha, Elizabeth, Ellsberry, Marion. Liz said in her letter that Andrew's father was William Marion Camp who m. Polly Ann Duncan in SC. All of this is what I have proved separately in my research except the middle name Marion for William Camp and the wife's name Duncan. I have that he married Mary Morgan on an affidavit he signed for a War of 1812 pension. Polly Ann could be Mary,
      and I suppose she could have been married to a Morgan before she married William Camp; but this bit isn't what I have found. This about who Andrew married and who his daughter, Indiana, married is new to me as I have no memory of this from 23 years ago. Does anyone have more information on any of this family? Or best of all, is Liz reading this somewhere? Thanks,
      Larealia Camp

    8. James M. Nash (1847-

      m Martha E. ?

      A James M. Nash appears as a Confederate soldier (private) in Company K of the 2nd Georgia Reserves. His service record is scanty. He was only 14 when the war began. He was a prison guard at Andersonville. Service record says:

      • enlisted Dec 22 1864 and on the muster roll dated Feb 25 1865
      • muster roll Jan-Feb 1865, enlisted Dec 22, 1865, Macon GA by Major Rowland for the war, never paid since enlistment, present.
      • The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Georgia Reserve Infantry provided guards for the Andersonville prison.

      His 1912 pension application says:

      • he enlisted in Company K 2nd Georgia Reserves at Stone Mountain Oct 1 1864
      • discharged in Albany Georgia
      • E.A. Beauchamp attested to his service "...I know because I was with him and we came home together...Applicant guarded oprisoners from September 1864 to the surrender."

      One explanation for this is found in the service records of William Brown of the 12 Georgia Battalion of Light Artillery. This data appears here:

      Brown William, Pvt.,
      Enlisted 5/13/62, Franklin, Present thru 11/1/64, Clothing issue 11/27/64. PR Widow Mary C. Brown applied Hart Co. 4/1/97. They married 10/55. She was born in SC, a resident of GA since 11/58. William died 12/64 of Pneumonia... Widow Mrs. M.E. Brown Teat...She stated that he was under age 18, and could not serve outside the state. He could not go to VA.

  3. Edward Lee Nash (1805-1846)

    Edward Lee Nash and his father Miles Nash moved to Arkansas in the late 1830s. They moved to Conway County Arkansas to the community near Springfield. This was called the "Georgia Settlement" as many of the residents were from Georgia -- some from DeKalb county.

    Sara M. Nash's 1972 Ancestors and Descendants provides this scanty evidence:

    "They were in Conway County, AR by 1840. There were several daughters and one surviving son, Willis S. Nash. It was this Edward L. Nash who drew land in the 1832 Cherokee Gold Lottery of GA (DeKalb County). And we believe that he was the son of "Spartanburg Miles." Note his witness of one of the Spartanburg deeds. The name of his son Willis may be a pointer to the maiden name of Elizabeth, wife of Miles."

    Edward Lee Nash married in 1837 Nancy Caroline Beauchamp (bc 1809) -- probably in DeKalb Georgia. I surmise that this Nancy is the daughter of John Willam Beauchamp born in Maryland, son of William Beauchamp who lived in DeKalb Georgia. He raised two families -- the first producuing a signle daughter Nancy -- then a larger familiy in the year 1838-1870. Nancy Beauchamp left DeKalb with husband Edward Lee Nash and his father Miles Nash and immigrated to Arkansas. See the data on the John W. Beachamp families below.

    This says:

    EDWARD LEE NASH m 1837 Nancy Caroline BEAUCHAMP
    
    Nancy Caroline BEAUCHAMP (bc 1812-1819 -
    Marriage 1 Samuel MERRICK 1843 AND 1855
    Marriage 2 Edward L. NASH Married: 17 OCT 1837
    

    We might add an additional marriage for Nancy Caroline Beaichamp. As implied above, a Samuel Merrick appears on the 1840 Conway Arkansas Census with family. He is shown age 30-40 (bc 1810-1820) with wife 30-40, with 4 sons and a daughter. If the above is correct, as Edward Lee Nash dies in 1846, we would expect Nancy Caroline Beauchamp to be in the home of Samuel Merrick after 1846. But, Samuel Merrick is NOT on the 1860 Arkansas Census. Further, we find that Nancy Merrick (age 48) has remarried (a third marriage) to Joseph Kelly age 68 as stated below.

    "KELLY, JOSEPH" 68 CONWAY "MERRICK, NANCY" 48 CONWAY 8 Sep. 1854 A/044 16

    Thrice widowed Nancy is adjacent to her daughter, Mary E Rankin in Pope Arkansas in 1860.

    Edward E. Nash would be a likely candidate as the eldest son of Edward Lee Nash. Edward Lee Nash died in 1846. There therefore should be two sons on the 1850 census -- see what appear to be four of his children shown below. If so there are eight children -- four daughters shown in 1840; three sons shown 1840 and George b 1853.

    1. Edward E. Nash (born between 1820-1830 - ?)
      Age 20-30 on 1840 AR census, missing in 1850.

      In Centennial history of Arkansas, Volume 1, page 560 by Dallas Tabor Herndon,.."Edward E. Nash" listed as trustee of the Lewisburg Academy (in Morillton AR) chartered in 1838. This was the third academic academy chartered by the state of Arkansas.

    The following four children of Edward Lee Nash appear together on the 1850 census -- just four years after the death of father Edward Lee Nash.

    1. Willis (1828- circa 1852)
      Age 10-15 on 1840, 22 on 1850 Conway Arkansas census (see above)

      This says:

      "Willis Nash married circa 1850 Sarah Frances Willbanks (1831 DeKalb GA - 1879 Conway AR). She married second Charles S. Wilder (see his bio here) in Nov 1854 Conway County Arkansas and had two children (from Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Western Arkansas, 1891).

      The Wilabanks Family, Compiled from various sources by Robert M. Wilbanks IV says:

      Hiram Willbanks, son of Henry and Elizabeth (Sanders) Willbanks, was born circa 1800 in Pendleton District, South Carolina. Henry Willbanks left a will in Pendleton District, South Carolina, dated September 24, 1818 and proved October 17, 1818. In it he named his children, including his son Hiram Willbanks. In fact, Hiram Willbanks was made executor of Henry's will, along with his brother Elim Willbanks.

      Hiram married Sarah W. Stell circa 1820 in Pendleton District, South Carolina. Sarah was born on November 8, 1804 in Pendleton District, South Carolina to Dennis and Sarah (King) Stell.

      Rev. Hiram Willbanks settled in Gwinnett County, Georgia, probably shortly after 1820. At the time, Gwinnett County was on the western edge of Georgia. Sometime between 1820 and 1830, more indian lands were ceded to Georgia, and Dekalb County was formed bordering Gwinnett County.

      In the 1830 census, Hiram Wilbanks is found in DeKalb County, Georgia, page 57. In Hiram's household were 1 male under 5 years of age, 1 male between 30 and 40 years of age, and 3 females.

      The Hiram Willbanks family migrated to Union Township, Conway County, Arkansas in 1837 when it was on the edge of the frontier. They settled land three miles southeast of the town of Springfield in a region known as the "Georgia Settlement".

      In the 1840 census, Hiram Wilbanks is found in Conway County, Arkansas, page 54.

      Hiram Willbanks was a farmer, blacksmith and minister of the Methodist Church.

      Sarah Stell Willbanks died on January 4 or 14, 1846 in Conway County, Arkansas. Hiram Willbanks died on August 28, 1848 in Conway County, Arkansas.

      Issue of Hiram and Sarah (Stell) Willbanks:

      1. Laurissa Willbanks, Married Thomas Gay
      2. Narcissa Willbanks
      3. John W. Willbanks
      4. William H. Willbanks, Born 1823 Georgia, Died April 11, 1859 Conway County, Arkansas, ? Married Elizabeth Kimberlin in 1855 in Conway County, Arkansas

      The Conway County AR marriage records say:

      "WILDER, CHARLES" CONWAY "NASH, MRS.FRANCIS" CONWAY 18 Nov. 1854"

      This biography says she and Charles Wilder had the following two children:

      1. Dovie N Wilder (1874 AR-
        A Conway Arkansas marriage record says:

        "Scroggins, Jas C. 20 Wilder, Dovie 18 11 NOV 1891"

        She is listed as a niece with George and Amanda Howell in 1880 in Conway AR. Her mother (Sarah Frances Willbanks Nash Wilder) died in 1879.

      2. James A Wilder

      Further, it states he (Charles S. Wilder 1828 OH-1893 Conway AR) was married four times: (1) first to a Mary Jones who died shortly after they were married in 1852; (2) to Sarah Frances Willbanks Nash in 1854 -- two children -- James A. and Dovey N. born 1872 [see a contrary list below]; (3) to Molly Bolton in 1881 [one child -- Claudia Bell, b 1882]; and (4) to Lizzie Cantrell. Further it says that "...George Wilder, an elder brother who died during the war, was the first of the family who came to Arkansas." On the 1850 Conway Arkansas census, Charles is living with older broether George age 29 also born in Ohio. The bio continues..."Horace, another brother, who lived in Arkansas, was killed while in the army, leaving our subject the only one of the family now residing in Arkansas." Consider the census data below:

      See the biography of this Robert A Willbanks above here. This skectch states:

      "Robert A. Willbanks, prominent among the farmers and early settlers of Union Township, is a native of that township, and was born in 1839, as a son of Hiram and Sarah (Stell) Willbanks, who were probably natives of the State of Georgia, from which State they removed to Conway County, Arkansas, about the year 1837, and settled on a small improvement three miles southeast of where Springfield is, in what has long been known as the "Georgia Settlement." Conway County was at that time little better than a vast wilderness, teeming with the various wild animals common to that section, and Mr. Willbanks, in company with the few who were living in that vicinity at that early day, suffered all the inconveniences, privations and hardships to which the first settlers are usually subject The nearest postoffice at that time was Old Lewisburg, about twelve miles distant..."

      This community also appears in a bio of Miles Snell:

      "Mr. Stell and brother, Dennis Q. Stell, were the first settlers in that vicinity, and through their influence many others came from Georgia, and the neighborhood became known as the "Georgia Settlement," a name that clings to it to the present time..."

      and in a bio of...

      "Hon. Z. A. P. Venable, a prominent farmer and present Representative of Conway County, was born in DeKalb County, Georgia, in 1836; was the son of Thomas W. and Martha (Stell) Venable (see sketch of James P. Venable). When about 3 years old was brought by parents to Conway County...Settled in the Georgia settlement..."

      Service records:

      1. Charles S Wilder served as a private in Company F 36th Arkansas Infantry. Enlisted in Springfield June 18 1862. Stoppage of pay for one month by sentence of court martial for desertion. Deserted Dec 10 1862. Returned April 10, 1863. Tried Court Martial sentence 15 days labor one and loss of months pay
      2. George Wilder, no military records found in footnote.com, IN Conway AR Probate Records is: "GEORGE WILDER DECEASED, EXECUTORS- JOSHUA MOSES, C.S. WILLIAMS, M.L. STILLS - 10-14-1865"
      3. Horace Wilder private company C 4th Arkansas Infantry. Enlisted August 1861. Occupation brigade butcher. Killed at Chicamauga Sept 1863.

       
      CONJECTURES:

      • Willis S Nash was married to Sarah Frances Willbanks. There is a child in the home of Charles Wilder and Sarah Frances Willbanks Nash Wilder. She is shown on the 1860 census as "Sarah E Nash Wilder" age 7. She was thus born in 1853 after the 1850 marriage of Willis and Sarah -- and before the 1854 marriage of Sarah Frances to Charles Wilder. Was she then adopted by the Wilder family?

      • Further, there is a George Wilder age 16 who could NOT be the son of Charles Wilder based on age in the 1860 living with Sarah and Charles. Who is this George? He is not a son of Charles or his brothers. Could it be Willis Nash's younger brother George shown on the 1850 census born in 1843 -- also perhaps also adopted by the Wilders? A "G.J.Nash" died at Camp Douglas, Illinois as a Arkansas Confederate POW (see below).
       

    2. Mary (1831-
      Age 19 with brother Willis on the 1850 Conway AR census. No further data.

    3. James (1836-
      Age <5 on 1840, 14 on 1850 with brother Willis on the 1850 Conway AR census. No further data.

    4. George (1843-
      Age 7 on 1850 on the 1850 Conway AR census. A "G.J. Nash" appears on the roll of Company A Crawford's Battalion, captured at Arkansas Post (Fort Hindman) Jan 11 1863, died in Camp Douglas Illinois of consumption March 7, 1863. I cannot confirm that this is a son of Edward Lee Nash. His name appears on the Oakwood Memorial Cemetery in Chicago as "G.J. Nash Crawford's Ark. Battn."

      No other Nash male of the appropriate age lives in Arkansas in 1860 with the initial "G".

    Further, there are also THREE Nash marriage records in Conway Arkansas (see this:)

      "RANKIN, R.B." CONWAY "NASH, ELIZABETH" CONWAY 8 Dec. 1853 A/031 25

      He was the son of Robert RANKIN (1792 Guilford County NC-1845 AR)

      This says:

      "Ruben Burr RANKIN was living in 1834 in Milan, Gibson County, Tennessee. He was born on May 4 1834 in Milan, Gibson County, Tennessee. He was living between 1854 and 1864 in Pope county, Arkansas. He was living between 1864 and 1880 in Buttermilk, Pope County, Arkansas. He was living between 1880 and 1885 in Arkansas.

    8. Miles Henry Nash (1841 GA - 1913 GA)

      Miles Henry was the first son to enlist in the War Between the States. He enlisted on Sept 26, 1861. He was wounded at Cold Harbor, Virginia (actually the battle of Gaines Mill) June 27, 1862. He was captured at Wilderness in Virginia on May 6, 1864. He was imprisoned at Elmira New York and transferred and exchanged at James River Va. on Feb 20, 1865.

      Miles Henry Nash's service record is missing from www.footnote.com. His Gwinnett County Georgia pension application (here) says:

      • He was born in 1841, enlisted in Company D 38th GA Sept 25 1861 at Kirkwood GA
      • served until he was captured at Wilderness May 6 1864
      • POW at Elmira NY until 1865

      www.38thga.com says (this is a copy of Henderson's Roster):

      "Nash, Miles H.- Pvt. 9/26/1861
      Transferred to Co. D, 4/1/1862
      Wounded at Gaines Mill, Va. 6/27/1862

    11. Edward Newton (1844 GA - 1914 GA)

      married Laudiski Culpernia Thompson Jan 18, 1876.
      Laudiski's first husband Richard Govan Thompson died in Oct 1862 (he was a member of the 38th Georgia Infantry)

      This marriage to Lodecia Thompson (widow of Richard Govan Thompson) is to Lodecia Nash, Edward's first cousin. See her with father William Nash (Larkin's brother and Edward Nash's uncle) in 1850, 1860 and 1870 (with son William R Thompson age 8).

      'Newt' enlisted in the 36th Georgia Regiment, Company F on Aug 4, 1862. He was captured at Vicksburg July 4, 1863 and paroled July 9, 1863. He rejoined the Army and was wounded in the leg at Resaca, Georgia Oct 10, 1864. The fractured leg bone caused the leg to be substantially disabled.

      From DeKalb County Georgia History -- Confederate Veterans buried at Stone Mountain

      Edward Newton Nash
      Private, Company F, 36th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry
      Born October 18, 1844, DeKalb County, Georgia.
      On August 4, 1862, the 17-year-old Edward Nash enlisted at Atlanta as a private, one of four Nash brothers to serve in Company F. He was captured with his unit at Vicksburg, Mississippi on July 4, 1863 and paroled a week later. He returned to duty and was wounded in the left knee at Resaca, Georgia on October 10, 1864. The bullet passed completely through his leg, severing muscle and tendon and crippling him for life. Nash was still home on medical leave when the war ended.

      Compiled Militray Service Record:

      1. Private E.N. Nash, muster roll Company F, 36th Georgia Infantry. May 1 - Aug 1863. Enlisted Aug 4 1862, Atlanta Georgia by Capt. Morton. Present.
      2. Private E.N. Nash, Company F, 36th Georgia Infantry. Roll of Prisoners, Vicksburg Mississippi July 4 1863.

      6. Vicksburg Parole, July 9, 1863. By Lt. Geo. B. Hudson, Capt Co F 36th GA. His Mark.

      In Confederate Veterans of Stone Mountain:

      "Twenty-year-old Edward Nash was one of the lucky ones. Though the gunshot wound he sustained at Resaca, Georgia fractured his left knee and cut the tendons, the doctors didn’t cut off his leg. Nash survived the odds and kept the withered limb, hobbling along with a cane the remaining 50 years of his life. Cousin Isaac Nash didn’t fare as well. His left hand was mangled by grape shot at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and he had to endure an excruciating 90-mile ambulance ride to Winchester, Virginia where doctors amputated his hand three inches above the wrist."

      Of his five brothers who served in the Confederate Army, two were wounded and two succumbed to disease (within two days of each other) at the Camp Chase POW facility in Illinois. After the war, Nash became a farmer in DeKalb County. On January 1, 1876, he married Confederate widow Lodusky Thompson. He joined Clement A. Evans Camp 665 of the United Confederate Veterans with his cousin, Isaac Newton Nash. Edward Nash died May 25, 1914.

      "T. Nash" is also found on Sgt. Edwin Jeffares muster roll. The roll was removed from Edwin's body by his wife after he died in Macon, GA. Edwin had been wounded in the battle of Atlanta on July 22, 1864. The roster shows almost all the 36th GA included in the Henderson Roster with the notable addition of "T. Nash and H. Jeffares" appended to the bottom -- out of alphabetical order. With four brothers in the 36th GA and the Army in Atlanta, James T. by age 16 in 1862 and surely by age 18 in 1864, would likely have joined his brothers in the 36th or 38th infantry.

    Children of Larkin Nash and Nancy Parker

    After the death of wife Merita in 1859, Larkin Nash remarried Nancy A. Parker in 1859 daughter of of William Parker (1791-1847) and Eunice Nelson (1793-1850). Nancy's great uncle Reverend Isaiah Parker is shown to be the next door neighbor of Larkin and Marieta Nash in the 1840 census.

    The 1860 Census shows Larkin in the Brownings District with $2000 in property and $1500 in personal property. Nancy is shown as a 'domestic' caring for ten children ages 6 through 24. By 1870 the 63 year old farmer had accumulated an almost identical amount of assets.

    Nancy was born in Taliferro County, Georgia. She was previously married to Rueben Parker (1829-1857) who was the son of Lewis Parker and Martha Henry Turner (see < a href="http://www.whitneyclaire.com/genealogy/wc03/wc03_443.html">this). She had two children:

    Nancy A. Parker is the grand-niece of great uncle Rev. Isaiah Parker, one of the original minister in the county. In Isaiah Parker's will (Will Book A pg. 217-218, DeKalb County, Ga) she is shown as an heir to part of Rev. Parker's estate in Oct 1859. She is identified as the niece of his wife Dicy (Leodicea born Aug 12, 1770 died 1855). Nancy Parker was the daughter of William Parker -- soldier of the War of 1812 of Taliferro County Georgia. William Parker was the son of Richard Parker -- older brother of Isaiah Parker. With Rev. Isaiah’s founding of the Fellowship Church in Tucker in 1828 on land adjacent to Larkin Nash, there was a long association between the Nash and Parker families before the 1859 marriage of Larkin and Nancy.

    The following letter appears on Tiffany Nash's extensive genealogy site (here):

    Letter: Nancy A. Parker Nash to Eliza Jane Parker Vaughn
    Text: Stone Mountain Ga
    April 14 1868

    My Dear Sister,

    This will inform you that your letter dated Jan 19 came to hand in [due] time and you may know that I was glad to know that you had thought of me once more for I had begin to think you had forgotten there was such a being as me. I believe I have no news that would interest you more than we are all well, hoping the same of you. I hope you will excuse me for neglecting to write to you so long after I received yours. I thought I would answer it immediately and I was very busy in the week and had company [??] Sunday, so I could not write. So I told Mr. Nash this morning I would not put it off no longer; I would lay all other business aside and write to you. Dear Sister it has been a long time since I heard from you before but it does not keep me from thinking of you many times and dreaming of you many times. I dream of being with you as we were when we were growing up and seeing so much pleasure not knowing what a few years would bring round with us. Dear Sister I do sympathize with you for the loss of your companion and son. I know something of your feelings. I would like for you to write in your next wheather Wyatt and John died at home or in the army. I have three little children one 7 years one 5 and one near two years old. There names Isaiah Parker, Margaret Eunice, and Thomas [Peitiler]. Willie and Julia wishes to be remembered to you. Julia is living three miles from us. Willie is tending

    [page 2]

    to a steam saw mill some 5 or 6 miles from here. I do miss Willie and Julia so much. I did hate to give Julia up so bad and She so young but I thought I would say nothing as she has married a [sturdy] and industrious young man and one that will treat her well. I wish I could wri te such as letter as I want to but I have got to be the poorest hand to compose a letter. M y mind is not like it used to be owing to so much sickness. I tell you Eliza you don’t know nothing about what I have went through for the last 12 or 14 years in the way of sickness. But I am now in very good health but can’t walk any distance hardly, though I walked two miles and back one day last week to have a tooth pulled. I did not think I could walk that far but I had been aggravated with toothache till I was tired of it and did not want to stop a plow, so I went and had it pulled but I payed for it that night with my leg. I guess you have heard of my sickness last fall a year ago. If you have not Bro. Tom! can tell you something about it. I did not walk alone in two months or more. I had what’s called milk leg. I must close as my feet are very cold. It seems like it is almost cold enough to snow today. I will write to Sister E. C. and [Tommie] in a few days. Give my love to all your children and [connexions/cousins?] and save a huge portion for yourself. Mr. Nash sends his respects to you. [??] from your Sister Nancy A. Nash.

    [This letter was written from Nancy A. Parker Nash in Georgia to her sister Eliza Jane Parker Vaughn in Texas. All [bracketed] words are words about which I am unsure of the correct rea ding. Much of the punctuation of the letter is mine, so some of it may not be punctuated correctly. It is hard to see the punctuation marks in the copy of the old letter. Nancy first married Reuben P. Parker and the Willie and Julia mentioned in the letter are Reuben’s children . She married second Larkin Nash and the other three children mentioned are Larkin’s. Their ages were hard to read, but I believe I’ve got them right. When Nancy writes that she 'did not want to stop a plow', that is exactly what it looks like. Perhaps she means she walked rather than take a horse away from the plowing.]

    Larkin’s marriage to Nancy Parker produced the following children:

    1. Isaiah Parker Mayfield Nash (1860 - 1937)

      Named for Nancy Parker's great uncle Rev. Isaiah Parker. And I have NO idea where the "Mayfield" name comes from.

      Married 1884 Martha Angeline Weed (1861 - 1929)

      The Mayfield Nash home appeared on the
      2006 Historic Norcross (Georgia) Holiday Home Tour.

      "In the early 1930s, Royston Merritt, one of the town’s barbers and husband of Willie Nash Merritt, purchased at auction the property on which this house now sits. Mr. Merritt then sold it to his wife’s sister, Mrs. J. V. Bolton. At the time of purchase, there was a small house here that was torn down to make room for a new house for Mrs. Bolton’s father, Mr. Mayfield Nash, and three of his daughters. Mr. Nash was a widower, his wife, Angelyn, having died in 1929. The Nashes had been farmers and their union had produced nine children, seven girls and two boys. When this house was completed sometime around 1934, four members of the Nash family moved in: Mr. Nash, two of his widowed daughters, and his single daughter, Ida, who never married. Just a few years later, in 1937, Mayfield Nash died, leaving the house to his daughters. Ida Nash, who was the last remaining family member living in the house before she died several decades later, was a graduate of Norcross High School and spent most of her adult life working for Rhodes Millinery company in Atlanta. Each day, she rode the passenger train Air Line Belle to and from the city, and she worshiped each Sunday at Norcross First Baptist Church."

    John Nash m. Sandal Copeland (1808-1884). Sandal Copeland was the daughter of William Baldwin Copeland (1752 Charlotte VA - 1850 DeKalb GA). His wife Rebecca ? was born in 1758 in VA. (See this Copeland document). The genealogy of the Cop;lenad family to William Baldwin Copeland from above is:

    • William Copeland (1618 England) to Middlesex VA 1650. Carpenter/Wife Mary?
      • Nicholas Copeland (1638-1712 Essex VA0 m Judith West
        • Nicholas Copeland (1675 Essex VA- ) married Dorothy Ripley daughter of Richard Ripley and Elizabeth Ramsey
          • Peter Copeland (1700 Essex VA- 1754 Spotsylvania VA) married Diana Reeves
            • Peter Copeland (1721 Spotsylvania VA-1785 Charles City VA)
              • William Copeland (1752 Charlotte VA- 1850 DeKalb GA)
                Some allege this Revolutionary War Pension belongs to William Copeland. However, he states he was born in Ireland.

      William T. Ray, and brothers Benjamin Ray and James P Ray were in Company F 36th Georgia Infantry. William was captured:

      • Champion Hill (aka Baker's Creek) May 16/17 1863, exchanged at Vicksburg July 1863
      • Cherokee County Georgia Sept 10, 1864 and sent to Camp Douglas Illinois Oct 29 1865, discharged May 15 1965 (another card says captured near Decatur GA Sept 10 1864 and deserted?)

      Brother James surrendered at Vicksburg and was disabled (not stated where) and sent to the arsenal in Macon Georgia as a "tinner'. Brother Benjmain also was captured in Cherokee County GA sept 10 1864 and sent to camp Douglas Illinois, enlisted in U.S. Volunteers, otherwise the same 1864-65 data as William.

      Brothers Robert A Ray and John P Ray were both in Company A/D 38th GA Infantry (see their services records here).

      This marriage information for Amanda Ray is based on the death certificate (1930 Fulton County Georgia #15796) of his daughter Pearl Barclay wife of "R.N.Barclay" (see below). This identifies her parents as "J.P.Nash" and "Samantha Ray" and is signed by "R.N. Barclay". See this page, then scroll down and click on #15796.

        Thomas E. Parks appears on the 1840 Madison County GA Tax List among the "Nowhere district" taxpayers;

        PARKS             Jeremiah M.       Nowhere (pole)
        PARKS             John A.           Nowhere (125 acres)
        PARKS             Thomas E.         Nowhere (pole)
        

        The tax and census data imply there are three Parks brothers: John A; Jeremiah M; and Thomas E. and probably mother "Mary".

        As to Thomas E. Parks' father, he must have died prior to 1830. I have no specific indications about his name. However, I have found this data about a "Jeremiah C. Parks" who has many conforming characteristics:

        • Jeremiah Parks appears on the 1805 Franklin County Georgia taxlist

        • from 1809 Jackson County Taxpayers (see this). Numbers shown are page numbers:

          • Park, John 9
          • Park, William 41
          • Park, Samuel 41
          • Park, Jeremiah S. 7 <----------------------------
          • Park, James 1 by Garrett W. Park, Ex'r of Estate
          • Park, Patrick 47
          • Parker, James 75
          • Parker, Matthew G. 71
          • Parks, Charles 77

          Many of these Park(s) above were sons of Robert Park (1744 NC-1802 Jackson GA)(see this) who purchased land in Jackson County in 1794. Sons shown in his will were: James (bc 1770-1803 Jackson GA), Garrett Wilson (bc 1770/1780-1814 Jackson GA); Patrick; John; Ezekiel; Samuel and Robert (These sons were all born in 1770-1785 era. This family accounts for most of Jackson County GA Park entries. Jeremiah is not mentioned as a connection.

            Sandy Creek forms the boundary of Madison/Clarke and Jackson counties.

        • The data above does NOT confirm the relation of "Jeremiah S. Parks" and the Madison/Jackson county widow Mary and sons Jeremiah M., Thomas E. and John A. (or S). The connections to this family are: the last name; the shared first names with a son; geography; and age. Other Parks men of interest in Franklin are:

          • Henry Parks (1758 VA) a Revolutionary War soldier who lived in Franklin -- but his genealogy is well known and does not mention a Jeremiah. This Henry received a 287.5 grant in Franklin county in 1785.
          • A James Parks appears on the reconstructed 1790 Franklin Georgia census. Further, he received a 1,000 acre land grant in 1787 on the Oconee River in Franklin County. He was a Lt. in the Virginia militia and died in Greene County 1823. His descendants do not include Jeremiah

         
        Both Thomas E. Parks and Jeremiah M. Parks served in R. D. Moore's Artillery Battery (Georgia State Troops) in 1864. Both are listed as "canoneers". They each have only one service record card at footnote.com. Both say "Limit of service, Athens and Vicinity". They were both over 40 years old during their service.

        By comparison and not to be confused with is this 38th Georgia Infantry website

        "Jerry M. (or Parks) - Pvt. Jeremiah M. Parks 9/29/1861 . Wounded in head and permanently disabled, at Cold Harbor, Va. June 29, 1862 . Discharged, disability, March 1864 . (Born in Ga.)"

        His extensive service record states that he enlisted in 1861 Lexington GA (Oglethorpe County). His service record does not record the Gaines Mill battle wound (called then Cold Harbor) as stated above. He is last shown "present" in April 1862. He is listed as "sick on furlough" on the May-Oct Muster Roll. He returns in June 1863. In November 1863 he has been detailed to Guard duty in Atlanta and is discharged in March 1864. There is a single card that states: "Prisoner. Camp near Summerville Ford. Nov 11 1863" in Virginia. This may in fact be "Jerry" Parks of Oglethorpe county GA who married Milly Elenor Busbin in 1854 who appears on the 1860 Oglethorpe GA Census. This Parks was born in 1829 according to the 1860 Oglethorpe census and is younger than the Jeremiah M. Parks of Madison county.

        This Jeremiah M Parks files for a pension in: Gordon County in 1889, Murray County in 1890; Catoosa County in 1891 (Keith GA) and Banks county 1907; and Clarke County 1913. All listed as "J.M Parks" in Company E 38th Georga Infantry.

        Thomas E. Parks' son James R. Parks served as a young man. There is a a Private James Parks who served in the 23rd Georgia Infantry Regiment, Company A. He has a single service record card at footnote.com. It states: "Appears on a Roll of Prisoners of War captured by U.S. Forces under Brvt. Brig. General W. J. Palmer and paroled. Roll (not dated). Where captured: Athens Ga. When captured: May 8 1865"

        There is also an service card for Private J. Parks in Capt. W.H. Sims' Company of the 23rd Battalion Georgia Infantry -- Local Defence (Athens Battalion, Enfield Rifle Battalion). Age 16 years. Appears on the company muster roll for Sept 1863. A footnote says he was employeed by Cook's company -- same battalion.

        I think the 23rd Battalion Infantry Georgia Local Defense is the actual unit. When captured, the Union forces probably did not distinguish between the 23rd Regiment and the 23rd Battalion. During the dates above, the 23rd regiment was part of Lee's Army of northern Virginia and was in Virginia until Appomattox and nowhere near Athens GA. The state of Georgia units -- like the 23rd battalion -- were restricted by Gov. Stephens from leaving the state and were mostly composed of older and under aged men enlisted to defend the state.

        It appears James has joined his father Thomas and uncle Jeremiah in Athens.
         

        Thomas E. Parks married Elizabeth Barron in 1844 in Jackson County Georgia.
        John A Parks married Amanada Melvina Barron in 1840 in Jackson Georgia

        Pvt. Parks was a member of the Troup Artillery, organized in Athens. He was survived by wife Amanda Melvina Barron Parks, whom he married 29 Dec 1840 in Jackson Co., GA. They had 7 children. He died Aug. 14, 1861 and was buried the following day."

        From here and here:

        Troup Artillery, also known as Captain Stanley's and then later as Captain Carlton's Battery of Georgia Artillery. This company was mustered into Confederate service on April 24, 1861, as part of the 2nd Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry. In December 1861 it joined Cobb's Legion and in early 1863 it became part of Cabell's Artillery Battalion until the end of the war.

        There are only two entries in John A. Parks' service record:

        1. John A Parks, Private, Troup Artillery, Register of Officers of the Army of the Confederate States who were killed in battle, died of wounds or disease. Deceased August 14 1862. Where Huntersville VA.
        2. John A Parks, Private, Troup Artillery, Register of Officers of the Army of the Confederate States who were killed in battle, died of wounds or disease. Deceased August 14 1861. Where Huntersville VA.

        Elizabeth Barron is listed as a daughter of Thomas C. Barron of Jackson County GA in his will of 1853 (See this). She is listed as Elizabeth Park. Her sister Amandy Park is also shown. Note that brothers Thomas E Park(s) and John A. Park(s) are adjacent in the 1850 Jackson Census (with wives Elizabeth and Amanda -- i.e., Barron sisters). A good reason to leave brother Jeremiah and mother Mary at home in Madison.

        Thomas C. Barron (1780 Endgecombe NC-1854 Jackson GA) was a private and sergeant in the War of 1812 in the Regiments of Thomas and Harris. He was married to Sally Titsworth daughter of Isaac Titsworth. Thomas and his brother Barnabas Barron (1792-1864 Hart GA) were the sons of Thomas Barron and Obedience Rogers of Edgecombe NC. On the same webite is:

        Isaac Titsworth (born between 1751-1760 sc - dc 1840 Jackson GA) is discussed in this thread. See these deeds relating t Isaac Titsworth in South Carolina. He appears on the 1840 Jackson GA census here age 80-90. He appears on the Pendelton Distric 1790 census here, 1800 here, 1810 here (Pendelton district was was discontinued in 1826 and became Anderson and Pickens Counties SC).

    8. Eliza A Nash (1851-1923)

      The obituary of James Patillo Nash of Aug 1915 lists "two sisters: Sallie Brandt; Mrs. John Black". Sallie Brand is shown a child #6 above (Martha S. Nash "Sallie"). Mrs. John Black can be assumed to be James' 8th child, daughter Eliza A Nash.

      This rootsweb entry and this both say John W Black was married twice:

      1. to Elizabeth Brand (1850-1923) [no parentage or marriage date is provided on either site] and
      2. to Jennie Louisa Nash (1840-1901) daughter of William Joseph Nash, grand-daughter of John Walker Nash.

      www.findagrave.com shows the Harmony Grove Methodist cemetery records in Lilburn, Gwinnett County, Georgia that contain:

      Jennie A. Black
      Birth: Nov. 25, 1840
      Death: Jul. 27, 1901
      Spouse: J. W. Black (1848 - 1934)

      J. W. Black
      Birth: Jul. 22, 1848
      Death: Jan. 16, 1934
      Spouse: Jennie A. Black (1840 - 1901)

      A Georgia Death certificate for Eliza Black dated Nov 21 1923 states that Eliza Black, spouse of J.W. Black died at age 72 in Gwinnett County and her father is listed as John Nash and mother is shown as unknown and is signed by J.W. Black of Tucker GA. It further states that she is to be interned at "Harmony Grove".

      This Eliza does NOT currently appear in www.findagrave.com for the Harmony Grove Methodist Cemetery.

      As the two genealogies linked above show "Elizabeth Brand" as the second wife, they are at odds with the death certificate data for "Eliza Black".

      Census data for John W Black in Gwinnett show:

      Hines Braswell    16 GA GA GA
      John Black        82 GA GA GA farmer uncle
      

      The census only confirms the dates of John W. Black's marriages: first wife is "Ginnie" who dies after 1900 but before 1910; and that the second wife is Eliza (or Liza) who he married in 1902. The death certificate and the appearance of a sister named "Mrs. John Black" at John Nash's funeral notice seem more reliable than the two undocumented rootsweb sites.

    From See The Georgia 1st Infantry Regiment Regulars

    "1st Regulars Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Macon, Georgia, in April, 1861, and soon moved to Virginia. The men were from Atlanta and Brunswick, and Glynn and Montgomery counties. It was brigaded under General Toombs and in April, 1862, contained 367 effectives. Transferred to G.T. Anderson's Brigade, the unit fought with the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Fredericksburg . It then was ordered to Florida, assigned to G.P. Harrison's Brigade, Department of South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and fought at Olustee. During the summer of 1864, it was stationed in the Charleston area and later saw action at Savannah and in North Carolina. The regiment reported 3 killed and 19 wounded at Savage's Station , had 27 killed and 77 wounded at Second Manassas , and lost 3 killed and 25 wounded at Olustee . Only 45 officers and men surrendered with the Army of Tennessee."

    See Battle of Olustee Pages on the 1st GA Regulars

    Stationed along the Apalachicola River in Florida during 1863, the regiment suffered heavily from disease and sickness, with a corresponding lowering of morale and effectiveness. "This [location] was useless from a military point of view, and our ranks were more decimated by malaria than if we had been in many battles", recalled John Porter Fort, a member of Company B. Sent to reinforce Finegan shortly before the battle, at Olustee (26 miles west of Jacksonville) the Regulars probably numbered fewer than 200 muskets. Captain Henry A. Cannon led the unit at Olustee, where it served on the Confederate left. The unit suffered losses of three men killed and twenty-five wounded. A detachment from Abel's Artillery served with the Regulars at Olustee and suffered several casualties. Later in 1864 the regiment served at Charleston and Savannah. It surrendered in North Carolina in 1865.

        "Miles P. Nash...is the father of John M. Nash deceased who was corporal of Captain Rankin's Company, 38th GA regiment of Georgia battalion commanded by R.W.

      From 38th Georgia Infantry site

      "Nash, John Miles - Pvt. 9/26/1861
      Transferred to Co. D, and appointed 4th Corporal April 1, 1862.
      Hand amputated in 1862.

    2. Martha M Nash (1857- )

      This must be the child stated by Nancy Nash's deposition for her husband Miles P. Nash above. As her son John M Nash died in 1862 and her husband in 1864, this Martha Nash must be the surviving child.

Gwinnett County Georgia Nash Data

For sources on this family, begin at this site by James Nash. You will have to page through the data generation by generation. This site is probably the most definitive site on the descendants of Edward Nash who married Lucinda Bell who was a son of the Edward Nash discussed at the beginning of this site. Thus, this Edward Nash would be the older brother of the Miles Nash -- both sons of the Edward Nash who died in 1783 in Spartanburg. Most the sons of this Edward Nash migrated to Gwinnett County Georgia.

Here is what James Nash says about the Edward Nash who married Lucinda Bell and the family lore:

"Some descendants give his name as Miles (Myles) Edward Nash. This tradition is found among the John Walker Nash descendants. In a letter to Dr. F.S. Nash, James Hemery Nash states that Edward Nash was born "on the James River below Richmond.

Three traditions as to the origin of Edward Nash have been passed down through his descendants...

  1. One states that he and Lucinda Bell were married in Wales, and that they and their one son, John Walker Nash, came to Gwinnett County History, Volume II, as submitted by T.L. Veal.
  2. Another view, recorded in an unpublished paper written by Frances Elizabeth Nash Lively, says that Edward descended from a prominent Virginia family of Welsh origin, that he fought as a patriot in the Revolutionary War and received a land grant from Congress in South Carolina.
  3. The third view, from the descendants of William Pinckney Hamilton Nash, states that Edward came from Glasgow, Scotland, and settled in Fairfax County, Virginia, near the home of George Washington.

None of these traditions have been documented.

Both James Hemery Nash and Edward Walker Nash stated that their grandfather Nash was a Revolutionary soldier. Family records offer few clues as to his Revolutionary War service. North Carolina records indicate that an Edward Nash served in that state's Militia. However, an Edward Nash served in the British army along with a brother, John, and these men had a mother named Elizabeth. Was Edward a Tory or a patriot? It is conceivable that he served both in the North Carolina Militia and as a loyalist soldier as well. Many did. We simply do not know.

Sara Mary Nash ? time ? they migrated to Laurens District, South Carolina. About 1806, they moved several miles up and across Rabun Creek into Greenville District, to the place known as 'Nash's Mill,' where Edward Nash operated grist and saw mills, shops and a farm."

I will not contest nor confirm James Nash's conjectures above on the origins of either Edward Nash or his son Edward. No direct evidence is put forward except what is largely from oral traditions or Sarah Mary Nash documents I have discussed above.

The confusion I wish to address is identifying the Nash Civil War soldiers. As Gwinnett and DeKalb counties are adjacent, several of the Confederate regiments (a regiment 10 companies each, 100 men per company) have both Gwinnett and DeKalb companies (e.g., 36th Georgia has Company F from DeKalb and Company K from Gwinnett) and some members of a single company from both counties.

There are a plethora of descendants of Edward Nash (son of Edward who died in 1783) that are mostly from Gwinnett county and descendants of Miles Nash (son of Edward who died in 1783) who are mostly in DeKalb county.

To help identify which soldier belongs to which family, I have abstracted the data from James Nash's site including males of service age who are descendants of Edward Nash in Gwinnett County. I have omitted:

  • the sons of this Edward who remained in South Carolina
  • sons not of service age
  • who lived in other counties than Gwinnett

The remaining males are:

Edward Nash (c. 1750-1830) m. 1781 Lucinda Bell (bc 1755-1836 Greenville SC)

Collateral Miles Line

The above table makes it clear that the descendants of Edward Nash (1.0) utilize the family name "Miles" at least ten times in the first few generations.

The supposition is that Edward Nash was married to Elizabeth Miles and maintained close relations with her father and her brother. See Death of Captain William Miles section in this document.


Collateral Willis Line

The table above indicates that the "Willis", "Willard","Newton" and "Patillo" enter the Nash family after "1.2 Miles Nash" (1760 SC - 1840 AR) was married. These surnames do NOT appear in the Gwinnett county Nash families descendants of "1.1 Myles Edward".

A further interesting note in this Chapter of Sara Mary Nash's book is:

"Roll 1261, Index of Judgements shows that Starling Willis (of Spartanburg), plantiff, brought suit against Miles Nash for $90 and obtained judgement." Starling Willis was the son of Richard Willis (Rev. War soldier in Benjamin Roebuck's regiment -- the one who noted Edward Nash's death). This Richard was married to Drusilla Barnett -- daughter of Joseph Barnett the J.P. who signed many of Edward and Miles' land transactions.

See the Spartanburg Willis page of Henry & Dianne Blankenship (here. There is a daughter Elizabeth Willis -- but I cannot connect her to Miles Nash (she married a Harmon Smith -- see this). So the Willis' below have all the right info -- except that Elizabeth marries a Smith!

Pursuing this clue one can find a potential wife for Miles Nash on the Willis page of Henry & Dianne Blankenship's website (see this. They note:

"Richard Willis born 1745 married Drusilla Pearson Barnett about 1744 in Spartanburg County, SC. Drusilla is listed as the first child in the Bible of Joseph Barnett [Note: witness and adjacent landowner on Mile Nash's transaction above] & Lucy Wade. She is listed as Drusilla Pearson in the Willis Bible. Where did the name Pearson originate? Had she been married before Richard? Who were Richard's parents?"

They show:

RICHARD WILLIS, SR. was born February 25, 1745/46 in Virginia, and died December 25, 1837 in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He married DRUSILLA PEARSON BARNETT 1774 in South Carolina, daughter of JOSEPH BARNETT and LUCY WADE. She was born July 12, 1755 in Virginia, and died May 04, 1845 in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

All of the sons below appear on the Spartanburg censuses below.

Children of RICHARD WILLIS and DRUSILLA BARNETT are:

  • JOHN WILLIS, b. September 18, 1775, Spartanburg, South Carolina; m. MARTHA "PATSY" SMITH, November 21, 1799.
    1800 Spartanburg census age 16-25
  • MARTHA WILLIS, b. March 30, 1777, Spartanburg, South Carolina; d. July 30, 1856; m. THOMAS.
  • WILLIAM WILLIS, b. September 23, 1779, Spartanburg, South Carolina.
  • RICHARD WILLIS, JR., b. March 20, 1783, Spartanburg, South Carolina; d. 1809, Charleston, South Carolina.
  • MARY G. WILLIS, b. May 21, 1785, Spartanburg, South Carolina; d. October 12, 1851, Calhoun, Gordon, Georgia.
  • ELIZABETH WILLIS, b. August 21, 1787, Spartanburg, South Carolina.
  • JOSEPH WILLIS, b. March 29, 1792, Spartanburg, South Carolina.
  • STARLING WILLIS, b. October 19, 1796, Spartanburg, South Carolina; d. July 20, 1879; m. CYNTHIA BRUTON.
  • EDWARD WILLIS, b. April 06, 1794, Spartanburg, South Carolina; d. September 29, 1849; m. CATHERINE ROEBUCK, 1818; b. January 21, 1797, Spartanburg, South Carolina; d. January 29, 1861.

  • This Elizabeth Willis born in 1787 may be Mile Nash's wife. She is of the right age and location and could have had a child as early as Mils Nash's eldest known son Miles in 1802 when she was about 15.

    The Blankenships provide much information on this Elizabeth Willis' father, Robert Willis (see this), such as:

    • RICHARD WILLIS, SR., served in the Revolutionary War as a soldier in Roebuck's Regiment. Stub entries to indents issued in payment of claims against South Carolina, growing out of the Revolution show: "X, Part 2; No. 2779; Lib. X Issued 22 Sept. '86; to RICHARD WILLIS for L16..5..8 1/2 D Sterling; duty in Roebuck's Regiment."

      Specifically they note:

      "for duty in Roebuck's regiment since the fall of Charleston"

    Collateral Patillo Line

    From www.genforum.com/patillo (post 347) Gary Patillo posted the following text on the Patillo family:

    "My father, George Pattillo, aged about twenty and his brother, Henry Pattillo, about eighteen years old, came to America in the year 1740. My father had not been in America in a great while, before he was married to Martha Varner, of Pennsylvania. He afterwards settled in Charlotte Co. Virginia, where he reared the most of his family – five sons and three daughters – their names as follows: James, William, David, John, and Samuel – Sarah, Mary and Janet.

    My father’s brother, Henry Pattillo, settled in North Carolina; and in time became an eminent Presbyterian minister. He married, and reared several children. All the Pattillos in America are descendants of those two brothers; the most of them being those from George Pattillo, my father, who was a devout, holy man, a Wesleyan Methodist – my mother of the same faith.”

    From This rootsweb site

    "George Alexander Pattillo, b. ca. 1720 in Scotland; d. 9 June 1798, Charlotte Co., Va. Married Martha Varner (Varnor, Vernon) of Penn. in Va., 1 July 1757. She was b. 1 Feb. 1735.

    Came from Dundee, Angus County, Scotland to America with his brother, Henry Pattillo in 1740. George and his younger brother, Henry, had supposedly been in Penn. before moving to Va. They were closely associated with a large group of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who had emigrated at an earlier date, by way of Penn., to the southern part of Virginia. The group we speak of settled in and around Cub Creek, Charlotte Co., then Lunenburg Co. John CaIdwell seemed to be the leader of this particular group as the area near Cub Creek was known as the "Caldwell Settlement

    William Caldwell executed a deed, 2 Apr. 1751, in Lunenburg Co., Va., for the conveyance of one acre of ground on his land for a burial place to thirty-one men in his neighborhood. Among these men whose families we find closely associated with the Pattillo family were David Logan, James Logan, John Middleton, Isaac Vernon (Varner, Varnon) and Henry Pattillo. (Va. Hist. Mag., Vol. XVIII, pp. 40-41)

    The first record we have of George Pattillo is in Lunenburg Co., Va., where he was listed as a tithable in 1752 by William Caldwell. The surname was spelled Portiilo, The name of John Varnon follows that of George, (Sunlight on the Southside, L. C. Bell, p. 187).

    (From Melba C. Crosse book)

    "Mrs. Mattie Janet Miller, youngest daughter of Rev. Samuel Pattillo, son of George,wrote a history of the Pattillo family. In this she states the following: "The following facts are from my father, Samuel Pattillo. 'My father, George Pattillo, aged about 20, and his brother Henry Pattillo, about 18 years old, came to America in the year 1740. My father had not been in America a great while before he was married to Martha Varner of Penn, He afterwards settled in Charlotte Co., Va., where he reared the most of his family, five sons and three daughters their names as follows: James, William, David, John and Samuel, Sarah, Mary and Jane. My father's brother, Henrv Pattillo, settled in North Carolina, and in time became an eminent Presbyterian minister. He married and reared several children. All of the Pattillos in America are descendants of these two brothers, the most of them being those from George Pattillo, my father who was a devout, holy man, a Wesleyan Methodist, my mother of the same faith. My father, Samuel Pattilio was a Methodist preacher more than forty years before he was called to his reward in 1844. He was twice married; first to Frances Hall, by whom there were nine children. Their names: George Alexander, Leroy, Martha Reid, Wesley, Simeon, James, Elizabeth, Urban and Fannie. His second wife was Martha Bailey, by whom there were eight children, (three died in infancy), their names: Samuel Henry, Mary Louise, Robert Fletcher, Benjamin ;Upheus and h?fatde Janet."

    (Signed) M. J. Miller

    The first portion of this history by M. J. Miller has been included in the first chapter of this book.

    George Pattillo gave his daughter Jane the middle name of JOHNSTONE. His brother, Henry, named a son William JOHNSTONE Pattillo. He, too, had a daughter named Jane who was a namesake of his mother. Was Jane, the mother of George and Henry, a JOHNSTONE before her marriage.

    Patillo Note (see this):

    Jane Strother James was born 12 NOV 1796 in St. Paul's Parish, King George County, Virginia, and died in Laurens County, South Carolina. She married Patillo Farrow 2 JAN 1826 in St. Paul's Parish, King George County, Virginia, son of Thomas Farrow and Anne 'Nancy' Patillo. He was born 2 SEP 1796 in Spartanburg District, South Carolina, and died 18 OCT 1849 in Laurens County, South Carolina. [Thomas Farrow's land adjacent to Miles Nash]

    See this article on the Spartanburg Farrows (see this) from Spartanburg Herald-Journal - Jun 9, 1974

    It says John Farrow and wife Rosanne Waters settled on Musgrove's Mill on the Enoree River circa 1764 and reared 8 children. Eldest was Capt Thomas Stobo Farrow wounded at Cowpens whose third wife was Sophia W. Widowed daughter of Reverend Henry Patillo

    This says: Anne 'Nancy' Patillo, b 1757 in Spartanburg District, South Carolina , died 21 AUG 1809 in Spartanburg District, South Married 1 1774 Major Richard Benjamin Harrison NC Militia (1751-
    Married 2 1791 Capt. Thomas Farrow (1755-1843) who married:

    Marriage 2 Thomas Farrow b: 5 FEB 1755 in Prince William County, Virginia Married: AFT 1791 in Spartanburg District, South Carolina"

    This is the Rev. Henry Patillo entry:

    "Patillo, Henry, born in Scotland, in 1726. came to America at nine years of age, settled in Virginia, and became a merchant's clerk. He studied for the ministry, was ordained in 1758, and removed to North Carolina, where he had charge of Presbyterian churches until his death. He was a member of the North Carolina provincial congress in 1775, and chaplain to that body, and chairman of the committee of the whole. He also taught for many years. His ministry among the negroes was particularly successful. Hampden-Sidney College gave him the degree of Master of Arts in 1787. He published in that year a collection of sermons, edited John Leland's "Deistical Writers," and left in manuscript a catechism, several essays, and a geography. He died in 1801, in Dinwiddie county, Virginia. "

    The Reverend Henry Patillo's daughter Anne Patillo (Harrison Farrow) was Miles Nash's neighbor in Spartanburg SC from 1791-1809 when she died. The appearance of the surname "Patillo" three times is perhaps a homage to Rev. Patillo? I cannot as of yet find a Nash-Patillo bloodline connection.


    Collateral Willard Line

    Larkin Nash's wife Margaret Willard was born in SC about 1807 according to the 1850 DeKalb Cenus. Their eldest child -- Willard Nash -- was born circa 1829 -- in Georgia, implying the couple was in Georgia by that year. I cannot locate father Miles Nash on the 1830 census, however, Larkin is on the 1830 DeKalb Census as they alledgedly moved to DeKalb around 1826.

    The existence of several Willard families in South Carolina makes the identification of Margaret Willard difficult. Geography suggests that John Willard who appears on the 1800 and 1810 Laurens census is the closest to the Spartanburg location where Larkin was born. Further, ALL the other Willards in SC are across Spartanburg County in the adjacent Union County. John Willard in Laurens is clearly the most geographically statisfying candidate.

      "My known ancestor was John Willard d.abt 1810 in Union County, S.C.. Is this the same John Willard that married Molly Howard in Mass.? John had at least five sons, James, John, Thomas, William and Beverly (or Barbery)..."

      High Sheriff 1654-73 Nansemond County VA

      From the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography (Vol. 19 pp. 191-2), Richard Parker (d. 1680) patented 400 acres on the south branch of the Nansemond River in 1654; 300 acres of land in Henrico County Virginia in 1669; 314 acres in Surry County VA in 1670; and 100 acres in Nansemond in 1675.

      Richard Parker was married to Elizabeth Bailey daughter of Capt. Richard Bailey of London. Three sons are identified as acquiring 1420 acres on the Nansemond River headwaters. Though the land was in Virginia at the end of the 1600's, it ultimately became Northampton County North Carolina after the North Carolina-Virginia border was drawn and redrawn.

      This says:

      "To all people, etc. whereas, etc.... Now know ye that I, the said Sr. Henry Chisheley, Kt., his Majesties Deputy Governor, do give and grant unto Thomas, Richard and Frances Parker, the three sons of Richard Parker, dec'd. one thousand four hundred and twenty acres of land on the marsh adjoining, lying and being in the souther branch of nansemond, beginning at a red oak standing on a point to the northward of Cranny Creek mouth and opposite to a small island called Cranny Isle and at Crain's ehancing, thence running down by the main branch side according to the several curvings and windings of the said branch 'till it comes to a great decayed white oak standing a little above the creek's mouth which is called Parker's Creek;"

      Richard's sons were:

      1. Thomas --
      2. Richard II --
      3. Francis --

    4. Richard Parker II (1653 Chowan NC - 1714 Chowan)

      See this rootsweb entry. It says this Richard was married to an unknown Pender

      This says: "Richard Parker II - Richard PARKER - b. about 1653/4, probably in Nansemond Co., VA; d. after 1714, Nansemond Co., VA. Son of Richard PARKER I. Resided in that portion of Nansemond Co., VA which later became part of NC. Richard received land by grant in 1681 after the death of his father. However, patents for this land were not issued until Apr. 26, 1698, in parcels of 100 and 400 acres. He received additional land patents between 1698 and 1714 for a total of nearly 700 acres located near his existing holdings and the head of Bennett's Creek in what is now Gates Co., NC....Married Pender"

      Sons of Richard II:
      1. Richard III - b. about 1677, Nansemond Co., VA; d. about 1752, Chowan Co., NC.
      2. Samuel - Possible son. Granted land on Hoods Mare Branch of Bennett Creek in 1714 that was subsequently granted to Richard PARKER. Possible sons: Richard and William.
      3. Jonathan - Possible son. Granted land with Daniel PARKER on Hoods Mare Branch of Bennett Creek in 1718 that was originally granted to Richard PARKER.
      4. Daniel - Possible son. Granted land with Jonathan PARKER on Hoods Mare Branch of Bennett Creek in 1718 that was originally granted to Richard PARKER.

    5. Richard Parker III (1677 Chowan NC-1755 Chowan NC)

      See this rootsweb entry

      This says he married Elizabeth King.
      This says:

      "Richard and Elizabeth (King) Parker - Richard PARKER - b. about 1677, Nansemond Co., VA; d. about 1752, Chowan Co., NC. Son of Richard PARKER and Miss PENDER. Lived in that portion of Nasemond Co., VA that became part of Chowan Co., NC in 1728, and appointed a justice for Chowan Precenct 1731. He received patents between 1718 and 1749 to just over 1000 acres in Upper Parish of Nansemond and near the head of Bennett's Creek in what is now Gates Co., NC. Will dated Sep. 22, 1749, and admitted to probate in Chowan Co., NC in Apr. 1752.

      One of his wives died in the summer of 1728, but his will indicates he was survived by another. Richard's lengthy will mentions 14 surviving children, and reveals that he, like his father and grandfather, acquired much land during his lifetime. Since his youngest two sons received no real estate, it is possible that they had received land transfers previously. His children are listed below in the order they appear in his will. Probably married second a Miss SWAN, and possibly married a third time."

      Children:

      1. Daniel PARKER
      2. Robert PARKER
      3. Jonas PARKER

    6. (Major) Richard Parker IV (1728-1799)

      This says:

      "Richard PARKER was in Orange County as early as 1753; is listed in "Orange County Court of Pleas and Quarterly Sessions" as a 'Justice', and in 1766, "Richard Parker, Esq. presents his commission as Captain of Foot in the Regiment of Orange". He bought land "on Waters of New Hope", which, later was located in Chatham. Several deeds name wife, Ann. In 1771 a deed of sale was witnessed by James Turner, LEWIS PARKER and JOHN BOOKER. Lewis believed to be son of Richard. Lewis's wife believed to be Sarah HATLEY.

      This on Chatham Land Grants says:

      "1784 Jul 28 - Indenture made James Sellars Senior by virtue of power of attorney from William Black to said Sellars of the County of Chatham and State of North Carolina of the one part and Nancy Hogan of same ... for and in consideration of 40 pounds paid the said James Sellars doth sell unto said Nancy Hogan that tract of said land lying in Chatham County on the waters of Great Bush Creek, the waters of New Hope consisting of 250 acres. Boundry neighbors: Richard Parker, Hogan, Clement, Kirby."

      Then this on Chatham Land Grants says:

      "1795 Apr 25 - Indenture made between David Sellars of Chatham County, NC, on the one part, and James McIver of same county, on the other part, witnesseth the said David Sellars for and in consideration of the sum of 50 pounds paid by said James McIver doth grant that tract of land being in Chatham County, NC, on the waters of Newhope containing 100 acres. Boundry neighbors: James Bynum, Griffin, Lewis Parker. Another Chatham County Deed says:

      "pg. 3, Aug. 38 1783
      RICHARD PARKER to LEWIS PARKER, for 400 pds in Gold and Silver, 640 acres on the Lick Branch, the waters of Newhope River, joins a line formerly of ROBERT HINES, JOHNSTONS line and THOMAS BELL.

      Isaiah Hogan ( - 1781) and Richard Parker (1718-1799) both of Chatham County NC were contemporaries. Isaiah was Sheriff of Chatham County 1777-1779. He was the son of Thomas Hogan. He was Captain of the Chatham County Militia in 1772. This says:

      "On October 15th, 1776, an election was held in the various counties for the purpose of selecting delegates, who were to meet at Halifax on November 12th to frame a Constitution and establish a permanent form of government for the State. Isaiah Hogan represented Chatham County as one of these delegates"

      This says that "Captain Isaiah Hogan (1746 VA-1781 NC) married Ann Parker" (perhaps a sister of Richard?).

      This site on Chatham NC Deeds says:

      p. 418, 20 Jan, 1775

Hogan, later Jackson, moved to Greene or Hancock Co, GA; may be one in 1820 Jackson Co., GA, p. 234, near Cates and Culpepper fams?" He was only child of Capt.

      From Elanor Davis McSwain's Some Ancestors and Descendants of Richard Parker , Chirurgeon, Born in Cornwall, 1629, Died in Virginia, Ca. 1680 and Many Other Parker Records. See this. The section on Richard Parker IV says:

       
      MAJOR RICHARD PARKER
      of Orange and Chatham Counties in North Carolina and Green County in Georgia

      Another member of the Nansemond Parkers that needs more research is RICHARD PARKER who left North Carolina and came into Georgia. In the Parker search many facts were gathered about this man, but the search has not been completed. He is an outstanding Parker and should be properly placed.

      Jonathan(4) and Jonas(4) Parker, sons of Richard(3) Parker, went to Granville County. Their brother, Francis Parker, has never been carefully traced. Some researchers have thought that he was the Francis Parker who made a will dated 1791 and probated in Gates County, North Carolina. That Francis Parker appears to be a younger man than Francis(4) Parker, son of Richard(3) Parker. As has been stated before, the Nansemond Parkers were "land hungry" and their love of the land makes them easier to trace. Francis(4) Parker, son of Richard(3) Parker, like his brothers bought some land in Granville County.

      William Bennett to Francis Parker, late of Chowan Co. N. C., 450 acres on both sides of a creek of N. E. Prong of the Tar River in Granville Co. April 4, 1756 wit. Jonas Parker, Jno. Edwards, Temperance Bodie

      Since in the year 1756 there were few Parkers in Granville Co., and Jonas(4) Parker, son of Ricahrd(3) Parker, had a brother Francis(4) Parker, who had been living in Chowan Co. and there was no other Francis Parker in Granville, Jonas(4) Parker was most certainly witnessing a deed for his brother Francis(4) Parker. Francis(4) Parker sold the land to Benjamin Wade on February 20, 1759 {159}. The same land is mentioned in a deed from William Taylor to Phillip Taylor for "250 acres in Gran- ville Co., North Carolina, land on "Lick Branch" a prong of the Tar River. This land was granted to William Bennett, April 20, 1745 and by him sold to Francis Parker and by him to Benjamin Wade who sold to Wm. Taylor (160}

      Jonas(4) Parker, son of Richard(3) Parker named sons Richard Parker and Stephen Parker. Richard Parker of Orange County named sons Richard Parker, Stephen Parker, and Daniel Parker, all names used by descendants of Richard(3) Parker. No records are available to the author on the descendants of Stephen(4) Parker, son of Richard(3) Parker.

      Orange County was created from Granville County in 1752. Major Richard Parker was in Orange County owning land on "Lick Branch". Richard Parker of Orange County, North Carolina was made a J. P. in March 1757 {161}, He proved the will of Wm. Milton in 1759, {162} had his mark recorded in 1761 and in August {163} 1763 he "presents comm as Capt. of Foot in Regt. of Orange County {164}. Again in 1764 he was made J. P. {165}. He and Patience Booker were granted "Letter of Adm." on the est of Patience Booker, dec'd, about 1764 {166}. He made an inventory of the estate of Patience Booker to the Court in 1764 {167}. In 1765 he, with two other men, was to attend court at Halifax as Petit Jurors {168} and in 1766 Richard Parker as Adm. was involved in a law suit. {169} One reference referred to "Maj. Parker" {170} in 1787 so evidently Richard Parker had been promoted from Capt. to Major. Richard Parker received a number of Land Grants in Orange County. There are four grants recorded for 700 acres {171}, 300 acres {172}, 148 acres {173} and 345 acres {174}

      In the early days of Chatham Co. North Carolina there appears to be only two families of Parkers -- Richard Parker who was from Orange County abd Robert Parker, son of Simon and Judah Parker of Edgecombe County, who has already been traced. The first recorded deed to Richard Parker was on February 17, 1771 when he sold to Oldham Hightower 180 acres on Newhope where Hightower was living. The deed stated "Richard Parker of the County of Orange" and was witnessed by James Turner, Lewis Parker and John Booker. {175} There were many deeds recorded in Chatham County made by Richard parker and by him and his wife Ann Parker. A few that give information are given here.

      Richard Parker to William Griffin, land on New Hope includes plantation where Stephen Parker now lives... 300 acres... on North side of Haw River, East side of Pokeberry. Jan. 8, 1783
      Stephen Parker, Daniel Parker Rich'd Parker

      Richard Parker and Ann Parker to John Hogan of Orange County land on both sides of Newhope... 120 acres being a part of a tract of 300 acres granted to sd. Rich Parker by Earl Granville by deed bearing date of 12 May 1755. 13 Oct 1784 Rich'd Parker

      Richard Parker Sr. of Chatham Co. to Tignall Jones Sr. of Wake County.. 700 acres.. parts of three surveys.. sd. Parker's plantation where he now lives.. land on Pike- berry Branch mentioned.
      6 March 1784
      Francis Jones, Tignall Jones Jr. Rich'd Parker
      Lewis Parker

      Maj. Richard Parker was closely allied with the Hogan Family. He sold Isaiah Hogan land on "Lick Branch". {180} Isaiah Hogan died and on February 12, 1782 Nancy Hogan, Nancy x Hogan, J. Williams and Rich'd Parker were appointed "Executors". {181} By 1785 John Hogan was appointed administrator of the est- tate of his father. {182} (One deed states that John Hogan was the son of Isaiah Hogan, dec'd.) In 1787 Nancy Hogan was appointed administrator of the estate. {183} John Hogan came to Georgia about the same time Maj. Richard Parker and his family came. Further proof that the Hogans were relatives is that Lewis Parker, who seemed to be the oldest son of Richard Parker, named his oldest son, Isaiah Parker

      There were many changes in the county lines in Georgia about that time. Washington County was created from Indian Lands in 1784. Greene County was made from Washington in 1786, and in 1793 Hancock was made from Greene and Washington. Warren was an adjoining county to Hancock. In 1825 Taliaferro County was formed from Green, Hancock, Warren, and Wilkes Counties. The Parkers settled in this area and are found in the records of several of them.

      Major Richard Parker and Ann Parker moved to Georgia. In Wilkes Co., Georgia Court Minutes of 1784, p. 29, is a notice, "Ordered that Richard Parker have a Warrant for 200 Acres on the Waters of the Ogeechee, on his own Head Right". At the same time Warrants were issued to Lewis Parker and Sherwood Hatley, both from Chatham Co., North Carolina. In the Tax Digest for Wilkes Co., Georgia for 1785, Capt. Thompson's District, the following men paid tax:

      Richard Parker        2 polls       2 slaves        200 Acres Wilkes Co.
      Richard Parker, Jr.   1 Poll
      Stephen Parker        1 1/2 polls   1 slave
      Daniel Parker         1 poll                        200 Acres Wilkes County
      Lewis Parker          1 poll                        200 Acres Wilkes County
      

      In the Minute Book Powellton Baptist Church, Mayfield, Hancock Co., Georgia (organized in 1786) for the year 1786 were the names of Richard Parker and Ann Parker. Although recorded deeds have not been located to show how much land was owned by Richard Parker, he acquired a number of acres. On April 1, 1799 he made a deed to his son, Richard Parker Jr., giving him some slaves and 516 acres of land. In this deed he mentioned his "other children" but did not name them.

      Richard Parker, Sr. of Greene County, Georgia, to son, Richard Parker, Jr. for the consideration of the love, good will & affection which I have & do bear toward my son Richard Parker, Jr. & further for the con- sideration of ten dollars, four negroes, to-wit, Cader, Judah, James & Jincy; also one tract of land which I now live on, containing 516 acres, lying on Powells creek, part in Greene & part in Hancock, adjoining land of John Cain, James Alford & John Johnston; together with dwelling house thereon & all furniture, stock & ______ of all kinds, together with all my substance of any kind whatever not posted to other children before this date. April 1, 1799 Richard Parker (Seal) {184} Signed, Sealed and delievered in the presence of Reuben Slaughter, John C. Mason, Tho. Baldwin, J. G. Recorded the 6th of April, 1799. Tho. Carleton, Clk.

      By 1799 Major Richard Parker was growing old. When and where he died has not been found but he evidently died between 1799 and 1811 as shown by this deed, recorded in Chatham Co.

      Richard Parker of Grreene County, Ga. to Francis Jones land on Pokeberry Creek granted to Isaiah Hogan and from John Hogan, son of Isaiah, deeded to Richard Parker, Sr. Apr. 1, 1811
      Matt Jones, Lewis Parker Richard Parker

      Of the four men, Lewis Parker, Stephen Parker, Daniel Parker and Richard Parker, Jr. Only one, Richard Parker, Jr. is actually mentioned as a son of Richard Parker, Sr. However Richard Parker, Sr. mentioned "other children" in a deed and Lewis, Daniel and Stephen were so closely associated with him they had to be his children. He sold the land on which Stephen Parker lived in Chatham which certainly shows a close relationship. No doubt, Major Richard Parker and Ann Parker had some daughters but their names are not known. Until proven other- wise Lewis, Daniel and Stephen Parker are here considered sons of Richard and Ann Parker.

She died before her husband on May 14, 1843 in her "82nd" year. She married Richard Parker about 1779 as she had been married 64 years when she died. Her death notice is in The Christian Index. {198} Richard Parker was a Rev. soldier in North Carolina. {199} Richard Parker, Jr. was given 516 acres of land by his father, Richard Parker, Sr. (see below.)

      William was a soldier in the War of 1812

      In 1832 William received a draw in the land lottery as a "soldier in the late war (1812)". No soldier records for William Parker have yet been found.

      Later in 1832, Richard and William both received two draws as "heads of households" in the Georgia gold lottery of 1832.

      In the 1830 Taliaferro County Georgia Census, William Parker is shown with 5 sons and 2 daughters. Father Richard's slaveholdings have increased to 18. In 1840, William is shown as the head of household with 7 sons and 3 daughters.

      By 1850 William has died. The census for that year shows, father Richard at age 88, and adjacently, widow Eunice J (or I) Parker with the following children:

      1. George (student) (1827
      2. Asa I? (1829
      3. Mary Ann (1831
      4. Nancy A. (1830-
      5. Ezekial T? (1832
      6. Wilie V. (1834
      7. Catherine E. (1837 m. Joseph L. Hart

      Also adjacent is Eunice and William Parker's son, Joseph Roberts Parker (age 29) with three small children. We may infer from this data that William Parker was married to Eunice (birthplace shown as Maryland).

      To account for the seven sons and three daughters shown on the 1840 census, the three daughter are still at home in 1850, five of the sons can be accounted for (Joseph, George, Asa, Ezekial, and Wilie). The William M. Parker living with Tobias Holland can be connected to William via his sister Susanna who married a Holland.

    Collateral Weed Line

    Jonas Weed and the Winthrop Fleet

    Jonas Weed was an early puritan settler in Massachesetts arriving with the "Winthrop Fleet" in 1631. This was a successor immigration to the original Mayflower/Plymouth Rock of 1620.

    Generations to from Jonas Weed (1598-1676) to Martha Angeline Weed (1861-1929)

    1. Jonas Weed (1598-1676)

      Immigrant from Stanwick, England, 1631 to Watertown MA
      founder of Wethersfield CN 1635
      founder of Stamford CN 1642

      Jonas Weed (1598-1676) was a Englishman born in Stanwick, Northhamptonshire (60 miles NW of London), England in 1598 on the banks of the River Nene. Jonas left England in 1630 to become a member of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and exercise his religious freedom.

      As a Puritan dissenter facing increasing conformity to the Anglican church, Jonas set off with about 700 colonists on 11 ships of the Winthrop fleet. He sailed on the fleet flagship the Arbella from Yarmouth on April 8, 1630 and arrived in near Salem Massachusetts in June 12, 1630 after an uneventful crossing of eight weeks.

      Jonas settled at a site ten miles up the Charles river and was a principle in the founding of the town of Watertown, Massachusetts.

      Jonas was one of forty men who formed the Church at Watertown in July of 1630. In September of the year the settlements of Watertown, Boston and Dorchester were first recognized as towns by the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

      In September 1634, he expressed dissatisfaction with the Church at Watertown and requested permission to "remove". In May 1635, six men were authorized to form a new Church Covenant in the wild west of Massachusetts.

      Jonas and five others left to form a new colony on the Connecticut River one hundred miles west of Boston. With only six others, Jonas formed the first white settlement -- Wethersfield -- in what would become the state of Connecticut in May of 1635. One month later, Thomas Hooker founded the town of New Town (Hartford) ten more miles up the Connecticut river. New Town (Hartford) would become the capital of Connecticut.

      In 1636, the newly settled commission for governing the Connecticut plantation permitted the Whethersfield group to form the Church at Whethersfield. In 1639 there were seven members of the church. Jonas Weed’s Jonas married Mary ? during his stay at Whethersfield. Two children were born in this Connecticut town. In 1640, thirty-three Whethersfield residents left to follow the Rev. Richard Denton to form another settlement based on ideological differences with the church.

      This time Rev. Denton, Jonas Weed and twenty other purchased a tract of land for 30 pounds sterling. This purchase would become the town of Stamford Connecticut. The land was on the coast and called Toquams and then to Rippowams. After 1641, the settlement was named Stamford after the English town north of Stanwick -- home of Jonas Weed. Jonas Weed prospered here and had eight more children. He died in 1676 in his third American home in Stamford.

      The following document survives Jonas.

      "At a Courte at Stamford when ye Govenor and Capteayn Ashwood was members of the Courte, an action by Jonas Weed, Plaintiffe, agt. William, a captive Indian servant of Rich Crabb, defends. Declare of ye Plaintiffe, ye sayd William on a Sabbath Day stowll from me out of my house, in meeting time, one cloth gown, and one staffe gun, and some wampon, and some other things. Te sayd Indian confesseth all ye things; Gooodman Weed compleayns agst Goodman Crab for saying, 'ye goodman Weed his daughter might have drunks upe ye sack and hid ye things: Goodman Crab denies ye charge. --- Courte sentenc ye sayd Indian shall be whipped at ye pleasure of ye Courte, and shall be kept close prisoner till he may be sent out of ye countray, and be sold as a slave."

      Jonas Weed is identified in numerous colonial records. He was a notable member of The Massachusetts Bay Colony, original settler of Watertown, Massachusetts, one of first settlers of Connecticut and the city of Stamford. The Stamford descendants were a prominent New England family for generations (see e.g., this or this or this).

    2. John Weed (1643 Stamford CT-1689/90 or 1714 Stamford CT)

      Married first 1663 Joanna Wescott (1644-1678) daughter of Richard Wescott
      Married 2nd Mary Strickland
      John was a soldier in King Phillip's War in 1671

    3. John Weed (1673/5 Stamford CT-1739 Derby CT)

      Married 1702 Mary Beamon (1681-1743 Derby CT) daughter of George Beamon and Mary Jackson

    4. Samuel Weed (1704 Derby CT-1756)

      Married 1730 Sarah Richardson (1710-1748) daughter of John Richason [sic] (See The Town and City of Waterbury Connecticut, Volume 1 by Sarah Johnson Pritchard, page 113. This says Sarah married Samuel Weed and...

      "wife of Samuel Weed, 'who lately resided under covert at Waterbury, being an outlaw,' according to Probate rec."

      Samuel Weed was notorious for his involvement in the "Derby Gang" of colonial counterfeiters.

      From The Public Records of the Colony of Connecticut [1636-1776], 1747, pg.303.

      "Whereas Samuel Weed, Daniel Tucker and Nathaniel Worster, all of Derby in the county of New Haven, before a special superior court held at New Haven on the 4th Tuesday of April last past, were severally indicted for counterfeiting the bills of publick credit on this Colony, or being aiding or assisting therein, and the said Weed and Tucker before said court were found guilty of the crime aforesaid on their con- fession, and the said Worster was found guilty of the said crime by the verdict of the jury, and thereupon the said Weed, Worster and Tucker, were severally sentenced by the said su- perior court to suffer the corporal punishments by law ordered, and also that they should, each of them, forfeit all his estate unto this government, and the sheriff of the county of New Haven was by the said court ordered and directed to make due enquiry alter and to seize and take into his possession the estate of the said Weed, Worster and Tucker, until this As- sembly should make some orders about the same: It is now resolved by this Assembly, that Capt. John Fowler and Capt. Samuel Bassett be a committee with full power, and authority to demand and receive of Samuel Mansfield, Esq, sheriff of the county of New Haven, all such goods or estate of the said Weed, Worster and Tucker, as he has seized and is in his hands or that may be found in the hands or possession of any other person, both real and personal, and to make sale of the same to the best advantage for the use of this government, and to make and execute deeds of any lands sold as aforesaid to any purchaser or purchasers, in behalf of this government; and the money that shall be raised on such sales shall be de- livered to the Treasurer, taking his receipt for the same ; and in case any part of such estate cannot be sold to good advan- tage for ready money, it may be sold on good bonds with sure- ties payable at the expiration of a time not exceeding two years, which bonds shall be lodged in the Secretary's office. Always provided, that the said committee do not retain or dispose of any of the estate of either of said persons as is for necessary use and by law is already exempted from being taken by execution, but allow them respectively to have the same, and necessary provisions for their wives and families till the first day of January next."

      • Counterfeiting In Colonial America by Scott, Kenneth/ Johnson, David R.. There is a whole chapter on "Samuel Weed and the Derby Gang". See this beginning on page 158 (some pages are not viewable).

        Of particular interest is the "escape plan" devised and executed by wife Sarah Richardson and son David. Samuel did escape but was soon recaptured (see page 161-162).

      • From Google books From Northhampshire to Walker Valley: A History and Genealogy of the Weed Family by James H. Wiseman and John L. "Jack" Weed, Heritage Books, 2007, page 9. This is a semi-readable history of the Weed Family beginning with Jonas Weed's arrival on the ship 'Arabella' with the Winthrop fleet in 1630 thru Samuel Weed the counterfeiter.

        This reference states that Samuel Weed, Daniel Tucker and Nathaniel Wooster were arrested in 1746 for counterfeiting. Weed pleaded guilty and was sentenced to prison in Hartford CT and forfieted his property. Sarah Richardson (his wife) died in while he was in prison. He was paroled and sentenced to never leave Hartford County. In 1752 he remarried and had 4 children.

      Samuel's children were:

      1. Samuel(1731-1750)
      2. David Weed (1733-
      3. Nathaniel (1736-
      4. Daniel (1739-
      5. Rueben Weed (1740-1791 SC)
      6. John (1742-
      7. Abel Weed (1744-

    5. Reuben Weed (1740 Derby CT-1791 Abbeville SC)

      Married 1759 Martha Messor

      Rueben was born in Derby Connecticut and died in Abbeville SC. The sons of Samuel Weed apparently left Derby CT and moved to Newburg New York on the Hudson River. Sons Nathaniel, John and Reuben then migrated from Newburgh New York to South Carolina in 1774 prior to the beginning of the Revolution.

      Reuben and Nathaniel were early members of the Long Cane Presbyterian Church in Abbeville SC.

      Ethyle Porter Weed wrote in 1935 regarding his military service:

      "First Lt. Reuben Weed "present and fit for duty" in "List of Officers in Col. (Thomas) Thomas' Regiment as well as present and fit for duty as of the unfit and absent 4th Oct 1776". From Compiled service records of soldiers who served in the American Army during the Revolutionary War, 1775-1783, State: New York; Regiment: Col Thomas Thomas' 2nd Westchester County Regiment of Militia. (see Ethyle Porter Weed in 1935 below). Other Officers listed: William Dutcher, Daniel Martling, Gershom Sherwood, Abraham Ledew, Isaac van Wert, Daniel Willims, Nathaniel Delivan, Samuel Lawrence, John Crissy Miller, James Cronkyte, Obediah Purdy, Joshua Drake, Benoni Platt, Hezekiah Gray, Caleb Merrit, Abijah Gilbert, William Fanshier, Thadeus Crane, Elijah Hunter, Henry Piers, Nathan Olmsted, Samuel Townsend, Richard Hatfield, William Woodward, David Dan.

      While interesting to find Reuben Weed's name on a Westchester County NY Militia unit in 1776 -- and to be recalled by Ethyle Weed in 1935. It is generally accepted that Reuben Weed was born in New Haven CT and moved to Orange County NY (Newburgh) where all his children were born 1760 through 1768. Some data implies that Reuben and his brothers Nathaniel and John moved to South Carolina in 1774 -- before the Revolution. Land records in Newburgh say he sold his property in 1774. Further there are many Weeds in and around the NY-CT border in Stamford CT who were more likely to be in the Westchester County militia."

      I doubt the veracity of Porter's NY lieutenant claim for the Reuben who migrated to South Carolina.

      For example there is a Rebuben Weed in Westchester NY (See this):

      "10. Reuben Weed was born 3 Feb 1740 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, and died 24 Jun 1810 in Greenfield, Saratoga County, New York. He was buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Troy, Renssalaer County, New York. He was the son of 20. Reuben Weed and 21. Lydia Holly.

      11. Mary Schofield was born 1746-1747, and died 10 Feb 1812 in Greenfield, Saratoga County, New York."

      or this:

      "vii. Reuben Weed was born 03 FEB 1740 in Stamford, Fairfield Co., CT, and died 24 JUN 1810 in Greenfield, Saratoga Co., NY. He married Mary Scofield 30 MAY 1764 in South Salem, Westchester Co., NY, daughter of Ebenezer Scofield and Mary Smith. She was born 1746 in Stamford, Fairfield Co., CT, and died 10 FEB 1812 in Greenfield, Saratoga Co., NY. "

      This Reuben Weed is the son of Reuben Weed 1717-1761 Stamford CT; grandson of Daniel Weed 1685-1765 Stamford CT; great grandson of Daniel Weed 1652-1697 Stamford CT; great great grandson of Jonas Weed, immigrant to MA. This makes him a distant cousin of The SC Reuben Weed and the likely Westchester County NY militia lieutenant.

      The Reuben who moved to SC in 1774 was:

      South Carolina Militia
      Private, Aide to General Andrew Pickens

      "His March, 19 1785 petition in the Abbeville (96th) District issued Reuben 52 pounds for his "...duty as a private and also rum, provisions and forage for militia use in 1780 and 1781."

      Ethyle Porter Weed in 1935 wrote to the Dept. of Pensions in Washington D.C., she states: "...Reuben Weed was appointed Lieut. in 1776 (in N.Y. I believe). His services were under Gen Clinton....He moved to South Carolina in 1778 or 1779...This is NOT the Reuben Weed who migrated to South Carolina!

      This is:

      "...Aug 18 a Reuben Weed his account of militia duty before and after the reduction of Charleston and for rum, Provisions and forage for Militia use in 1780 and 1781."

    6. Reuben Weed, Jr. (1765-1845)

      Reuben, Jr. married Elizabeth Hawthorne who came to Pennsylvania with congregation of 87 families of Presbyterians of the Rev. Thomas Clark of Ballybay, Ireland in 1764. In the 1770's many of these Scotch-Irish Protestants came to South Carolina.

      In 1832, Reuben, Jr. drew a 160 acre tract in the Chamber's district of Gwinnett County, Georgia. By 1840, Reuben had returned to Abbeville, SC. John Weed (1792-1883), Reuben Jr.'s oldest son, remained in Gwinnett county. He was also a successful lottery drawer -- moving to Gwinnett County in 1827. Reuben's Jr's other son Reuben III migrated to Indiana in 1837.

      Regarding his military service:

      Private, South Carolina Militia
      He enlisted while residing in Abbeville District under Capt. Joseph Calhoun and Col. Anderson during 1780 and 1781

      "To Reuben Weed for Duty Col Anderson's Regiment #161.10
      Rum and Salt 1780 #141.
      201 bushels of corn in May 1781 22.10
      Corn and Oats in June 1781 41.12"
      Rum and Salt in 1780"

      "96 District
      May 1781 of Reuben Weed 20 bushels of corn for the use of Gen Green's Army by order of Brig General Andrew Pickens"

      In 1935 a letter summarizing his pension application says:

      "He applied for a pension October 7 1839 while living in the Abbeville District, South Carolina aged 74 years and alleged that while a resident of said place he enlisted in February 1782, served as a private in Captain Joseph Calhoun's company in Colonel Anderson's South Carolina Reginment and was discharged November 30, 1782...

      His claim was not allowed as he failed to furnish proof of service, in accordance with the requirement of the pension law."

      In 1840 a discharge from service was submitted signed by Captain Joseph Calhoun in 1782. Proof was requested about the authenticity of the signature.

    7. John Weed (1792-1883)

      John Weed married Mary Buck in Abbeville, SC. Mary was the daughter of William and Margret Eiken Buck ( -1799) immigrated to Abbeville SC from Ireland in 1793. Mary was their first American born child.

      William Buck and Margret Eiken Buck's children were:

      John (1785-1871) Born Ireland died in Morning Sun, Ohio
      William (1787- ) Born Ireland
      James (1790- ) Born Ireland
      Robert (1792- ) Born Ireland

      Sarah (1797-1828) Born SC married James McBryde
      Elanor (1799- ) Born SC married Alexander Wade in Preble County, Ohio

      John Weed and Mary Buck had the following children:

      1. William (1814-1860)
      2. Elizabeth died in infancy
      3. James H.(1820-1903)

      After 30 years in Gwinnett, John Weed moved to near Columbus on what is now the Fort Benning Military Reservation in Chattahoochee County in 1857. John Weed and Mary Buck moved with sons William, John H. and Samuel.

      After the War Between the States John and Mary Weed and son John moved to Dale County Alabama and then to Texas in 1870. John died in Texas in 1882 at the age of ninety.

    8. James H. Weed (1820-1903)

      1st Lt. of Gwinnett Militia 1841

      In 1857, John and Mary Buck Weed and three of their sons left Gwinnett County for Chattahoochee County. One son remained. Our bloodline through the Weed family follows son James left behind.

      There are two works on the descendants of the Weed families:

      1. Southern Weeds and Allied Families, Charles Allison Weed, Gateway Press, Baltimore MD 1971
      2. History of the Weed and Allied Families, Louie Clarence Weed and Louie Gordon Weed , Gateway Press Baltimore MD 1990.

      James H Weed is omitted from the "Southern Weeds and Allied Families" work apparently owing to the mispelled last name on the census ("Weade").

      James Weed and Rossana Wells were both born in South Carolina in 1820. They were married in 1838. This is the connection of the Weed to the Wells family line.

      Eldest son William, son John B. and father James all enlisted as privates in the "DeKalb Light Infantry", Company E, 7th Georgia regiment. Son William volunteered early (August 11, 1861). Father James (age 42 -- and son John D.B. -- age 16) enlisted the following summer on July 26, 1862.

      On August 30, 1862, the three Weeds saw action at 2nd Manassas. Younger son John was killed, William and James were both wounded. This 100% family casualty rate must have been high, even for soldiers like these with only 5 weeks of military service.

      William was noted as a "stock driver for the division" during 1863 and 1864. No later official records of his service have been found. Father James "lost four fingers in an accident" and is listed as "deserted Oct. 1864".

      Roxanne (Rosana Wells) died in 1899. Her obituary from the Gospel Messenger of October 1899 noted that she left "...her husband, eight girls, two boys (two deceased), forty-seven grandchildren (ten dead) and thirteen great grandchildren (five dead)".

    1. Emmanuel Wills ( - after 1653 Warwick VA)

      Emanuel Wills was born Unknown in England, and died Aft. 1653 in Warwick Co., VA. He married Elizabeth Cole 13 Oct 1635 in St. Gregory by St. Paul's Parish, London, England. She died Aft. 12 Jan 1670/71 in Warwick Co., VA.

      The Wills/Wells Family of Warwick, VA

      The Earliest Members of the Wills Family of Warwick County, VA. A "Working Draft" written September 1982 by Mr. Fred Eggleston of 11600 Stephen Road, Silver Springs, MD 20904-2728. The Draft was revised in 1992. Mr. Eggleston also produced an excellent chart of the likely connections of various Wills families to the immigrant Emanuel Wills and his wife Elizabeth Cole.

      The Earliest Members of the Wills Family of Warwick County

      (This is a "Working Draft" written in September 1982 by Mr. Fred Eggleston of 11600 Stephen Road, Silver S pring, MD 20904-2728. The Draft was revised in 1992. Mr. Eggleston also produced an excellent Chart of the likely connection of various Wills families to the immigrant Emanuel Wills and his wife Elizabeth Cole.)

      "Among the 17th century settlers of Mulberry Isiand Parish in Warwick County, Virginia were members of the Wills family, whose descendants later spread to isle of Wight, Southampton, Surry, Amelia, Fluvanna, and other counties in the colony and state, and to North Carolina. The nearly complete destruction of Warwick County records during the Civil War and earlier has hampered efforts over the years to put together the early history of the family.(l) Sufficient pieces of the puzzle survive, nevertheless, to construct at least the begirining of an outline of the first three generations of the family in Virginia.

      The Virginia family can be traced with reasonable assurance to an Emanuel Wills who was living in London by the 1630's (.2) "Emanuell Willes" married Elizabeth Cole at London's St. Gregory by St. Paul's Parish on 13 October 1635.(3) in the poll tax of 1641, Emanuel was listed as a freeman of the cooper's company, residing in the east-side parish of St. Olave, Hart Street.(4) The baptism of seven children of Emanuell and Elizabeth Wills, and the burial ( one, are recorded in the register of St. Olave, Hart Street for the following date!

      • WiIliam Wills....baptized 5 August 1636
      • John Wills.... baptized 24 August 1638
      • Elias Wills......baptized 11 September 1640
      • Hanna Wills......baptized 15 September 1642 / buried 26 September 1643
      • Emanuell Wills...baptized 21 February 1644/5
      • Elizabeth Wills..baptized 4 January 1646/7
      • Richard Wills....baptized 1 March 1648/9.(6)

      Not five years after the last of these entries, an "Eman. Wille, Elizabeth his wife, and six children" had arrived in Virginia as shown by the list of headrights for a land patent for 1,850 acres on the Potomac River, granted to Peter Knight and Baker Cutt(s) on 13 October 1653.s Emanuel died very soon after his arrival, most likely before the patent, for Captain Baker Cutts had married Elizabeth and then left her a widow for the second time by 26 February 1656/7, when she and Peter Knight split the acreage and renewed the patent.(7)

      Elizabeth very shortly took a third husband, Captain Henry Jackson of Mulberry Island Parish in Warwick County. Captain Jackson and Elizabeth sold her portion of the Potomac River patent to Capt. Thomas Fowke, whose son hat the patent renewed in 1665 after his father's death.(8)

      By the middle of 1659, the rigors of early colonial lifes had cost Elizabeth her third husband and half the children she had brought to Virginia perhaps nine years or so before. The will of Captain Henry Jackson of Mulberry island Parish was dated 7 May and proved 20 July 1659.(10) He left a brick house with land on Mulberry island held in right of his wife Elizabeth to her eldest son John Wills then living there, with remainder for want of issue to his younger brother Emanuel Wills and then their sister Elizabeth Wills. A personal property bequest was to be divided equally at his wife's death among the three Wills children and Henry's own minor children Sarah and Robert Jackson, which may tend to suggest that these latter two were also children of Elizabeth. Henry also left property to two adult children, evidently by an earlier wife: Henry Jacksonll and Dorothy Dennet, together with grandchildren Mary and Ann, Dorothy's daughters. The will also gave property to Henry's "loving friends" and executors Miles Cary and Robert Pyland,(12 )with Miles Cary designated to care for the minor children.

      By 18 June 1661, the widow Elizabeth had married a fourth time, to Major Edward(13) Griffith of Mulberry Island, who assumed charge of the minor Jackson children's estate.(i3) Major Griffith had been appointed a surveyor by the Council of the colony on 15 December 1656, and had moved to VVarwick by 20 January 1659 from Westmoreland County, where he had been a commissioner (justice) on 4 August 1658.(14) He represented Warwick in the General Assembly along with Miles Cary for the sessions of March and October 1660, and alone for the next session beginning in 1662.(15)

      Major Griffith had died by 4 May 1669, when Mr. Thomas Iken obtained a patent for 1,350 acres in Mulberry island Parish, including 400 acres for headrights in right of his wife Elizabeth, widow of Major Edward Griffith, deceased.is On 21 April 1670, iken was appointed sheriff of Warwick County. (17 )He was still living on 23 September 1671, when the Council appointed him to audit an account.is Mrs. Elizabeth iken was living on 12 January 1671/2, when she prosecuted a lawsuit in York County.(19)

      Thomas Iken had died without issue and apparently without will before 6 January 1674/5, when a jury found that his 400-acre tract on Mulberry island had escheated to the Crown. The rights were granted to John and Emanuel Wills.(20) The two brothers together and singlv recorded patents totaling 667 acres mostly from escheated Iken land, with additions for headrights, in 1676, 1682, and 1694." Little is known of the life of the elder brother John Wills. What may be his autograph survives along with the autograph of his stepfather Edward Griffith in witness to an original assignment from Henry Filmer to Robert Filmer dated 27 August 1664.22 Johnls last patent was dated 22 November 1682. (23) He was dead before 15 December 1685 when Jeremiah Peirce returned in Warwick court an account of horse and mare "outlyers" belonging to the estate of Mr John Wills, deceased.(24)"

    2. Emmanuel Wells (1644 Somerset England -1695 Warwick VA)

      Son of Emmanuel Wells from Bristol England to Newport News, VA

      "Emanuel Wills, brother of John, married Elizabeth, a daughter of Lt. Col. Miles Cary and Ann Taylor, after her father's wili and before 11 April 1670, when they sold her bequest under the will. (25)

      Windmill Point

      This plantation was the homesite of Miles Cary Sr., who camew from England in 1645 at the age of 22. He was killed defending Old Point Comfort against the Dutch June 10, 1667. His grave nearby is said to be the oldest in Newport News. Father of Miles Cary, Jr. of Richneck, his descendants left an endelible mark on the development of this nation. Orinally the Baymham Patent. His father-in-law Thomas Taylor willed the Warwick County land to Col. Cary.

      See also Hampton Roads History Tours.

      Emanuel evidently served as captain of a company of Warwick militia, for a surviving court entry made shortly after his death referred to him by that title. 26 He and Robert Hubbard, (27) as churchwardens of Mulberry Island Parish, went to England in'April 1683 to secure a legacy to the parish under the will of Henry Filmer. Emanuel's autograph is on the original document acknowledging receipt of the legacy. (28) Fragments of county court minutes show Emanuel serving as justice of the county court in January 1690/1 and April 1691. (29 )He died after 18 November 1695, when he executed a deed to Thomas Rogers, and before 2 August 1697, when Miles Wills waived the widow Elizabeth's dower rights in connection with the deed in accordance with her power of attorney. (30)

      The Warwick quit rent roll of 1704 shows entries in the names of William "Wells," 615 acres, Elizabeth Wells, widow, 155 acres; Capt. "Mills" Wells, 425 acres; Emanuel Wells, 325 acres; and Elias Wells, 50 acres. (31)

      The widowed Elizabeth Wills was presumably Elizabeth (Cary) Wills, widow of Emanuel II. She held 160 acres at the rent roll of 1713. (32)" [same reference as above]

    3. John Wells, Sr (1670 Newport News VA - before 1738)

      Married Elizabeth Roberts

      "A fifth member of the third generation was John Wills, who listed 750 acres in York and none in Warwick in the 1704 quit rent rolls. (64) John Wills had married, shortly after 25 January 1699/1700, Elizabeth, a daughter of Thomas and Rose (Forgusson?) Roberts of York County and widow of Thomas Harwood of that county. (65) John acquired Lot No. 38 in Yorktown in 1707 and one-half acre and rights to a watermill there in 1711. (66) He was a merchant in York and Warwick, acquiring ordinary and ferry licenses in York in 1707/8 and engaging in much commercial litigation there. (67) He was a churchwarden of Charles Parish in York in 1708 (68) and road surveyor in 1710. (69 ) The Charles Parish register lists the births of sons Thomas, John, Pate, and John Pate Wills and daughter Ann, and the deaths of Pate and Ann all during the period 1702-1712, in some cases identifying John as "of Warwick." (70) The 1713 rent roll listed John Wills for 100 acres in Warwick. (71) John Wills and Miles Wills in partnership maintained an ordinary kept by William Chancey in Yorktown in 1715. (72 ) On 15 August 1715,

      John Wills patented 130 acres in King and Queen County adjoining a tract devised to him by the will of John Pate. (73 )By 14 November 1718, when he sold the Yorktown mill, and on 29 March 1721/2, when he sold 200 acres in York, he was living in Mulberry lsland. (74 ) Elizabeth Wills, who had deeded several slaves in York County in 1713 to her sons John and Thomas, carpenters, (75) was a widow in January 1738, when she gave 200 acres in York, left by her first husband Harwood, to her son and prospective heir "Thomas Wills, Jr." .
      .
      .
      It is this researchers belief that Elizabeth Roberts Harwood Wills accompanied her son, John, to the Chowan District, and that the Elizabeth he claimed in his headright application for land, was she.

      "November ye 25th 1762 The Account of Sales of Estate of John Wells Decest by Miles Wells Adm

      ...

      I don't know about you, but I have found this inventory of the sale for John Wells' estate to be very interesting. It very clearly delineates John Wells as a carpenter with very special skills. In old Warwick and York Counties, Virginia, as in Old Jamestown, the cooper was a very important and necessary person within the community. Practically all goods brought into this country and exported from here were shipped in hogsheads or barrells, especially tobacco, sugar, and rum. These skilled craftsmen could also turn their trade very readily to ship building, as many of the same principals of carpentry could be applied. John Wells had originally purchased 250 acres of land, of which he sold 225 acres, apparently when he could not meet the quit rent payments; keeping just 25 acres for himself. That probably provided enough for a garden spot, house, workshops, and necessaries like barns and housing for his fowl. His trade was probably what kept and supported his family."

      From Granville County Legacy:

      Miles Wells Family

      The Wills(Wells) family had a long and prominent existence on the American scene, beginning in Old Warwick County, Virginia where the family intersected with the Cary family. The progenitor of the Cary family, Miles Cary, presented the Wills family with the given name of Miles, which has been carried down through many generations.

      John Wills(Wells) was the first of our Wells line in North Carolina. He was the son of John Wills and Elizabeth Roberts Harwood of York County, Virginia; his birth listed in the The Charles Parish register in York, as 29 November 1705. He appears on record in Bertie County, North Carolina in 1738. The identity of his wife is still a mystery, but she must have had connections to a Hardy family, as at least two of John's children named sons, Hardy, the first such use of that given name in the family. John died intestate in 1760. It is believed that he had at least 10 children, among whom was our ancestor, Miles.

      The earliest record of note for Miles was in the Bertie County Court Records the second Tuesday of the October Term when he was given a letter of administration for his father's estate in 1760. It is with Miles' generation that we find the spelling of the family name changes from Wills to Wells.

      Miles was born ca. 1740 in Bertie County, and married around the time of his father's death to Frusanna Lee (Perry?), believed daughter of John Perry and his second wife, Sarah Moudlin (Bond). Their daughter, Frusanna, was born in 1744 in Bertie County, North Carolina.

      We know that Miles and his family were in Granville County by 1765 He apparently purchased his first land in 1765 according to this land entry: 15 April 1765, James Reaves to Miles Wells, wit. Larken Johnston, Thomas (X) Morris for 250 acres on the branches of Fishing Creek. Miles was given permission by the Granville Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions in 1780-1787 to build a water grist mill on Cubb Creek.

      According to History and Genealogies of Old Granville County, North Carolina, 1746-1800, page 131, dated February 3, 1783, Miles was one of about thirty people who were appointed to a committee in Granville County, "to lay out a road the best and most convenient way from near Shearman's Meeting House to a road laid out from Caswell Court House to Granville County line." This directive may have been the incentive for Miles to continue to investigate and invest in land in Caswell County, which he had already begun to do. The Court House was then located in Leasburg, when the present Caswell and Person Counties were one.

      There is no record of Miles having served in the Revolutionary War. There is proof that he was a patriot to the cause, as there is a pay voucher on file in the State Archives which indicates that he provided supplies to the Army. There is also a record in the North Carolina Colonial Papers noting that Miles was one of a group of Granville County folks who signed a petition against high taxes before the Revolution began. So any descendant is eligible for membership in either the Daughters of the American Revolution or the Sons of the American Revolution, based upon his patriotic service.

      It would appear from deed books and court records, that Miles was quite a land speculator. He purchased his first tract of land in Caswell County long before he made the move from Granville County to Caswell County, from William Eaken of Caswell County, a tract for 100 pounds a 110 acres section near the head of the South Hico, on 2 October 1782.

      An additional 323 acres on South Hico were purchased 10 November 1784, which was a State Land Grant. The 13 June 1797 found Miles buying land, also in Caswell County, some 640 acres on Sandy Creek from an Edward Atkinson of Person County. On the 24 November 1797, Henry Williamson sold to Miles some 250 acres on Linch's Creek of the Hico. All in all, Miles amassed some 1375 acres of land in the Person and Caswell County area.

      Miles lived in the easternmost part of Caswell County, where his land bridged the line which divided the two counties of Caswell and Person, making him a taxpayer in both counties, and active in the affairs of both. Miles continued buying land in more westerly territories, especially in Iredell County, NC: land that he included in his legacy to the children of his daughter, Elizabeth Wells Bowles.

      Miles was the founder and major supporter of the Lynch's Creek Primitive Baptist Church in 1799 near his home in Caswell County, North Carolina. Several of the Wells family also were members and supporters of the Church in various ways: James, Willis, Elisha, Hardy, and Elizabeth, were among some of those named.

      Miles died in 1828 in Person County; his will dated 9 April 1825.

      1. Hardy Wells, born 1762, who married Elizabeth Parker in Caswell, 20 October 1784;

      Abner led the Wells family migration to Georgia "by the luck of the draw" in the land lottery in 1825. Abner Wells and Henrietta Williamson were both originally from North Carolina. They were raised in Spartanburg SC and married in 1817. Abner drew land in the Gwinnett Lottery in 1825 and began a migration of the entire family of Elisha Wells from South Carolina to Gwinnett and DeKalb counties (father Elisha and sons and daughters Eunice, Sarah, Willis Lea and Henry Miles followed Abner). Abner and Henrietta had -- by one count -- nine children (See this):

    Collateral Cary Line

    English Cary Family -- Drapers and Mayors of Bristol

    Emmanuel Wells II of Yorktown Virginia (above) was married to Elizabeth Cary daughter of Col. Miles Cary who was killed in the Second Anglo-Dutch War in 1667 at Old Fort Comfort in Virginia.

    Col Miles Cary was an immigrant to Virginia from Bristol England. The Cary line is well documented back to the crusades in the twelve century. Neil Cary's site The Cary Family in England provides the genealogy of the Cary family beginning in 1170 A.D.

    This genealogy shows the line from Adam de Karry born 1170 to Col. Miles Cary in Virginia as follows:

    1. Adam de Karry (1170- )
      of Castle Cary in Somerset England. The first ever recorded Kari, Castle Kari is mentioned in the Doomsday Book but the owner is not, and Adam is the first Kari ever mentioned by first name. The Karis are suppose to have been from Cornwall originally; a valid source, a prince, says that the name may come from the son of the Roman Emperor Carus who was general in Britain about 285 AD. Castle Cary in 1086 was held by 'Walter' probably Walter of Baiton who held it for the Norman Walter de Douai. He married Ann Trevett, (daughter of William Trevett, Knight). Ann:

    2. John De Karry (1200-
      of Castle Cary in Somerset England. Married Elizabeth Stapleton

    3. William de Karry (1230-1303 Devon England
      of Castle Cary in Somerset England. Married Alice Beaumont

    4. Sir John William de Karry (1270-
      of Castle Cary in Somerset England. Married Phillipa Archdeacon daughter of Sir Warren Archdeacon

    5. Lord William Cary (1300-
      of Castle Cary in Somerset England. Married Margaret Bozon

    6. Sir John Cary (1325- of Castle Cary in Somerset England. Married Jane Holwell De Bryen

    7. Sir John de Cary (1350-1404 Waterford Ireland)
      of Upper Cary, born in Holway, Devon England. Baron of the excequer by King Richard II. Banished by Henry IV to Ireland.

      This was part of the "War of the Roses" from 1455-1485 between the House of Lancaster (the red rose) established in 1399 by Henry Bolingbrooke, Duke of Lancaster (later Henry IV). Henry IV deposed his cousin Richard II above -- who Sir John de Cary supported. The Lancaster line descended from John of Gault, fourth son of Edward III to Henry IV.

      The opposing faction in the War of the Roses was the House of York (the white rose). Richard II (Duke of York) also descended from Edward III through 3rd son Lionel and fifth son Edmond.

      This contest for the kingship of England ended in with ascencion of Lancastrian Henry Tudor (later Henry VII) and was consolidtaed under his son Henry VIII.

    8. Sir Robert Cary (1375-before 1435)
      Neil Cary says:

      "In the beginning of the reign of Henry V a certain knight-errand of Arragon performed many feats of arms, to his high commendation, arrived here in England, where he challenged any man of his rank and quality to make tryal of his valor and skill in arms. This challenge Sir Robert Cary accepted: between whom a cruel encounter and a long and doubtful combat was waged, in Smithfield, London. Sir Robert Cary vanquished the presumptuous Arragon; for which King Henry V restored unto him good part of his father's lands, which for his loyalty to King Richard II, he had been deprived of by King Henry IV." (1) He married Jane Hanchford, born 1379 in Holway, Devon, (daughter of Sir William Hanchford and Unknown) died 4 Dec 1449. Jane:. (2) Married 1395, Margaret Courtenay, (daughter of Sir Philip Courtenay of Powderham).

    9. Sir Philip Cary (1400-1437)
      of Cockington, Devon

    10. Sir William Cary (1437-1471)
      of Cockington Devon. Neil Cary's site says:

      "An eminent Lancastrian, who upon the issue of the battle of Tewkesbury, 10th Edward IV fled to a church for sanctuary, but was brought forth under promise of pardon, and beheaded. (1) Married 1458, Elizabeth Ann Paulet, born 1445 in Hinton St George, (daughter of Sir William Paulet of Hinton St George and Elizabeth Denebaud). Elizabeth:. (2) Married 1464, Alice Fulford, born 1443 in Devon, England, (daughter of Sir Baldwin Fulford of Dunsford)."

      Two primary Cary lines diverge here.

      1. Son Robert of the Bristol England line from which Col. Miles Cary of Virginia descends.
      2. Son Thomas Cary who had son William (1495-1528) also a Sheriff and Mayor of Bristol who married Mary Boleyn (sister of Henry VIII's wife Ann). This marriage produced Henry Cary, Lord Chamberlain to Henry VII 1585. His son Robert Cary Earl of Monmouth who was an intimate of Henry VII's daughter Queen Elizabeth I. See his memoir here.

    11. Sir Robert Cary (1458 Cockington Devon -1540 Clovelly, Bristol Avon England)
      Married Agnes Huddye

    12. William Cary (1492 Clovelly-1572 St. Nicholas, Bristol, England)
      Mayor of Bristol in 1546 during the reign of Henry VIII. Occupation Draper. Sheriff of Bristol 1572
      Married second Ann (Joane) Herle

    13. Richard Cary (1515 Bristol-1570)
      Called "Richard the Elder" or "The Older Merchant"
      Married Chritian Dennis

    14. William Cary (1550-1633)
      High Sheriff and Mayor of Bristol
      Married first Mary Llewellan
      Married second Alice Goodall

    15. John Cary (1583 Bristol-1661 Bristol)
      Occupation Draper, Mayor of Bristol
      Married first Elizabeth Hereford and had son John Cary who was an immigrant to Massachesetts
      Married second Alice Hobson daughter of Henry Hobson (also Mayor of Bristol) and Alice Dans. From this union Virginia immigrant Col. Miles Cary descends. Children of John Cary and Alice Hobson:
      1. Col. Miles Cary (1620-1667)
      2. James Cary (1623- ) immigrated to New England 1640
      3. Mary married Nathaniel Harrison

    16. Col Miles Cary (1620-1667)

      All three children of John Cary came to America -- John to New England, Miles and Mary to Virginia.

      Miles came to Warwick County Virginia in 1640. He married Anne Taylor -- daughter of Capt. Thomas Taylor. They lived on a plantation called "Magpie Swamp". In a few years Miles had begun a succession of public offices:

      Justice 1652
      Mayor 1654
      Lt. Colonel of Warwick 1659-
      Burgess 1659
      Escheator-General of Virginia 1665
      Colonel of Warwick County 1659
      Collector of Lower James River 1663
      King's council 1663

      In 1667 during an attack by the Dutch Fleet at Old Point Comfort (Fort Monroe), Col. Miles Cary died of wounds received. His tomb at Ft. Monroe is called "Cary's Quarter" with an inscription naming Miles Cary's ancestors.

      Col. Miles Cary and Anne Taylor had seven children:

      1. Maj. Thomas Cary (1646-1708) married Francis Milner

      2. Anne (1648-
      3. Henry (1650
      4. Bridgett (1651 married Capt. William Bassett
      5. Elizabeth (1653- married Emmanuel Wells
      6. Col. Miles (1655-1708)
           Rector, William and Mary College
           Surveyor General Virginia
      7. Capt. William Cary (1657-1733) married Martha Scarbrook
           High Sheriff 1732

      Col. Miles Cary's untimely death at the hands of the Dutch, left widow Anne Taylor Cary with a brood of teenagers. Shortly after father Miles' death, daughter Elizabeth married Emmanuel Wells, recently arrived from Bristol England. See Col. Miles Cary's home -- Windmill Point -- marker above.

    The 1840 Census thus corresponds to the list below -- BUT the 1830 census has an older daughter. The wife in 1840 is younger than the wife in 1830. This implies that a daughter of the first marriage was grown by 1830 and a second family was begun in the late 1830s.

BEAUCHAMP (1856 Stone Mountain, DeKalb Co., GA m2 1811 Hancock GA Susan Davis This says: "In a interview with Joseph C Beauchamp, a son of John W, a newspaper article relates how Joh n W was the first white man to own Stone Mountain in Georgia. Not realizing its worth he later sold the mountain and never gained from his $40.00 and a pony investment." This says: "Descendants of settler John W. Beauchamp have added to the legends about Stone Mountain ownership. Their family traditions recall that he traded forty dollars and a pony for the mountain and that he then traded it to Andrew Johnson for a "muzzle-loading gun and twenty dollars." No Beauchamp bill of sale has ever been found, and a formal deed could hardly have been executed before 1822. That is the year the Georgia State Legislature prepared land grants dividing the mountain into seven land lots. It is believed these were awarded to veterans of the Revolutionary War or their heirs." This by Gary Hawley says: "Hi, He was John W(ashington)Beauchamp. He did own Stone Mountain at one time. I have a newspaper article that deals with his buying of Stone Mt.

    I cannot tell you how happy I am to have another Buck researcher. I have plodded along for years, using my vacations to 
    research, visit cemeteries etc. Making my cousins run to find information on any leads I might get here, since I can't.
    Here it is, in all it's glory. I am Barbara Lee Johnson, daughter of Leola Frances Buck, Walter Benjamin Buck, James 
    Edward, Robert Edward, Robert and then William. My mother was adopted at the age of 13 so did not really spend most 
    of her life with her family. I have only had my cousins (as friends and loved ones) except for their names, for the 
    past 10 years or so. Some day I will tell you that story.

    An Historical Sketch of the Long Cane A.R.P. Church
    AN HISTORICAL SKETCH of the Long Cane Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, By Nora Marshall Davis, M. A., D. Lit., 
    Director of the Historical Markers Survey of South Carolina
    
    About the time of the construction of these forts, Providence was shaping events in Ireland. On May 10,1764, petitioned 
    by members and friends who had preceded him to America, and influenced by favorable descriptions of New York by Robert 
    Harper, of Kings College (Columbia University), Dr. Thomas Clark, with about one hundred families of his parishioners 
    and neighbors, left Newry, Ireland, for America. Their arrival on the following 28th of July was announced in the New 
    York Gazette of August 6th as follows:
    
    
    "Last week in the Ship John, from Newry, Ireland, Luke Kiersted, master, there arrived about three hundred passengers, 
    a hundred and forty of whom, together with the Rev. Clarke, embarked on the 30th ult., with their stores, farming and 
    manufacturing utensils, in two sloops, for Albany, from whence they are to proceed to the lands near Lake George, which 
    were lately surveyed for their accommodation, as their principal view is to cany on the linen and hempen manufacture to 
    which they were all brought up."
    
    The remainder, who did not go with Dr. Clark to Stillwater and subsequently to Salem, New York, formed the nucleus of 
    Little Run, Long Cane, and Cedar Creek (later Cedar Springs) churches. Dr. Clark and his congregation are said to be 
    the only known ecclesiastical body that came to America as an entirety, pastor, ruling elders, and communicants, with 
    no break in their religious services.
    
    In the meantime, the Rev. Alexander Porter, born (in 1770) and reared near Parsons Mount (so called from the owner of 
    this mount and surrounding land, James Parson, a lawyer, of Charleston), Abbeville County, the first native-born minister 
    of the Presbytery of the Carolinas and Georgia, has completed his literary and his theological training at Dickinson 
    College, Pennsylvania. Having been licensed to preach by the Second Associate Reformed Presbytery of Pennsylvania, he 
    returned home and began to preach at Long Cane and Cedar Springs, January 1,1797. On March 22,1797, a call was moderated 
    for him, signed by the following members:
    
    Also, David Kenedy (Kennedy?),... Nathanial Weed, Sr., ...,William Cochran,....,James Cochran,...,
    Andrew Cochran,...,William Buck,...,John Beaty, Sr.,..., Francis Hunter.
    
    Return for a moment to the boyhood of the Rev. Alexander Porter, who was made fatherless when a very young boy. After the fall of 
    Charleston, and while the people were still in the old Pickens Block House at Abbeville, The following men were sent to Coronaca 
    Creek for a much-needed supply of com: Hugh Porter, the Rev. Alexander Porters father, Jared Liddle (Liddell), Enos Crawford, 
    Andrew White, Matthew Thompson, James Beard, a Mr. Smith, a Mr. Finley, John Pickens, a brother of General Pickens, and 
    others. Soon after crossing McCord's Ferry in the early morning, they were attacked, when ascending the hill leading up 
    to where Mr. West Cromer subsequently lived, by a party of Tories; Enos Crawford, Hugh Porter, and John Pickens were 
    killed on the spot.
    
    The Rev. Alexander Porter resigned the Long Cane charge, September 15,1803, on account of his weak state of health and 
    the uncommon largeness of his charge. After he notified the congregation of his anticipated resignation, a congregational 
    meeting was called at the home of Mr. James McBryde to determine upon a plan of procedure; none being agreed upon, a 
    meeting was next appointed at Cedar Springs, when a majority present resolved to divide the charge. Cedar Springs 
    then petitioned Presbytery for Mr. Porter as stated supply. Mr. Porter was accordingly released from Long Cane, 
    September 15,1803, and accepted the call to Cedar Springs alone, at a call meeting, January, 1804, on condition 
    that he be allowed eight Sabbaths.
    
    The genesis of the Abolition movement is a part of the early history of South Carolina and of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian 
    Church, in South Carolina. Before Wendell Phillips and William Lloyd Garrison began to write in vehement language and to speak 
    with passionate eloquence against the institution of slavery, a whole settlement of Quakers had left Rayburn Creek, Newberry 
    County, to go into a non-holding-slave State; and large settlements of Associate Reformed Presbyterians had left Hopewell, 
    Chester County, from Fairfield County, and from Long Cane and Cedar Springs, Abbeville County, because of their opposition 
    to slavery, and had formed Hopewell Church, Preble County, Ohio. In 1826, an overture on the subject of slavery was sent 
    up to the Synod of the West by this Hopewell congregation in Ohio. Not only the members of this church, as previously stated, 
    were from South Carolina, but also the pastor, the Rev. Alexander Porter, who was a native of Abbeville County and the second 
    installed pastor of Long CAne and Cedar Springs. When this overture was presented to the Synod of the West, 1826, only the 
    First Presbytery of Ohio, says Dr. Lathan, was decidedly in favor of it: and three of the six pastors of the First Presbytery 
    were native-born South Carolinians: "Alexander Perter, of Abbeville County; Samuel P. McCaw, of Abbefille County; and David McDill,
     of Chester County.

    UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
    
    In the year 1814 the Rev. Alexander PORTER, with a number of the members of his Church, emigrated from South Carolina, and 
    settled in the south-west corner of Preble County, Ohio, where they formed the congregation and built the church of Hopewell. 
    After this period Mr. PORTER, occasionally visited and preached at Hamilton, sometimes in the building then occupied as a 
    courthouse, and sometimes, when the weather was peasant, in a grove of woods near the intersection of Second and Dayton Streets
    Centennial History of Butler County, 1905
    "The United Presbyterian church of Oxford was organized in 1836. It was originally known as the Associated Reformed church, 
    but in 1858, in common with other bodies of the same faith, it took the name "United Presbyterian." The Oxford church is a 
    scion of the Rev. Alexander Porter's church, of Israel township, in Preble county, eight miles north. Porter's church was 
    formed by members who came from South Carolina to avoid slavery.
    
    In 1770, Rev. Alexander Porter, the first native-born minister of the Presbytery of the Carolinas and Georgia was born. 
    He was born and grew up near Parsons' Mount (named by the owner of this mount and surrounding land, James Parsons, a lawyer, 
    of Charleston), Abbeville County. After completing his education and theological training at Dickinson College, Pennsylvania 
    and having been licensed to preach by the Second Associate Reformed Presbytery of Pennsylvania, he returned home and began 
    to preach at Long Cane and Cedar Spring, January 1,1797. On March 22, 1797, a call was moderated for him, and signed by the 
    following members:

    William married Jane Hathom. Two more children were bom, Samuel, b/July 30,1801 in Abbeville, S.C. and died and is buried 
    in Preble Co.,Ohio. The last child, a girl, Margaret H., b/June 19, 1804.When she died she was buried in Fugit Township,
