117 NOTE: Information on M. Elizabeth "Betsey" McCollister and J. J. Davis marriage and family is based on federal census data from Carroll Co., GA., Muscogee, Co., GA., Wood Co., TX. and from records in Muscogee Co., GA., deed book I, p. 334.
NOTE: See associated 1850, 1860, 1870, & 1880 census data under J. J. Davis' information.

INDENTURED DEED: Deed records in Muscogee Co., GA., deed book I, p. 334, show J.J. Davis as one of the signers to sell Sarah Bailey McCollister's portion of her father's estate in Carroll Co., GA. Sarah's father was Robert S. Bailey (see full transcription of his will under Robert S. Bailey information). All of the signers of the deed are believed to be Sarah Bailey McCollister's known children and/or their spouses, with the exception of her daughter, Syrena Emaline McCollister. Since J.J. Davis signed the deed, the assumption is that he was a son-in-law of Sarah McCollister and the husband of Betsey, shown as wife of J.J. Davis in the 1850 Carroll Co. census. Therefore, it is assumed that Betsey was a McCollister and was the first born child of Robert and Sarah Bailey McCollister.

NOTE: M. Elizabeth McCollister and Syrena Emaline McCollister married brothers, i.e., J. J. Davis and Edley J. Davis, Sr.

NOTE: The obituary of William McCollister, M. Elizabeth McCollister Davis' brother, noted that William was survived by a sister named M. Davis. William died June 24, 1907 in Phenix City, AL. Therefore, we know that M. Elizabeth Davis died after June 24, 1907.

MCCOLISTER, M Elizabeth (I11278)
 
118 Notes by Ronny O. Bodine:

WILLIAM RUSH. In or before 1658, William Rush married Anne, daughter of Francis Gray. The following deed, written 20 Nov 1658, was recorded in Westmoreland County on 28 Nov 1658 (Deeds & Wills, Vol. 1, p. 78):

Francis Gray of Appamattox, Westmoreland Co. to William Rush for many and sundry considerations me there unto moving as well as the tender affection I bear unto my daughter, Anne, have and doe by these presents freely give, make over and bestow upon and unto William Rush, husband unto my said daughter, a tract of land containing 100 acres, being part of a tract owned by me lying in the county aforesaid, and being at a place commonly called the Round Hills, nigh unto the Machodick river-to William Rush and his heirs by the body of my said daughter, forever. The said William Rush yielding and paying unto me and my heirs for an acknowledgement, one pepper corn an annum, the said pepper corn to be paid at or upon the feast of St. Michael, the archangel.

The aforesaid 100-acre tract was in turn given on 3 Jan 1673/4 to Joshua Hudson upon his marriage to William RushŁus daughter Elizabeth (refer to the above account of Joshua Hudson).

Three generations of William RushŁus are attested to in the following lease and release of land recorded in Westmoreland County Deed Book 8-2, p. 145-147:

William Rush of Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co., Va. to Rev. David Stuart, of St. PaulŁus Parish, Stafford Co., Va., being 100 acres purchased from Robert Howson by William Rush, the grandfather of the above mentioned grantor and lesser, and granted by deed of gift to William Rush his son, the father of the above grantor, as by deed bearing date the 22 July 1689, relation thereunto being had, may more at large appear, and now descended by inheritance to William Rush, the grantor thereof, the grandson to the above William Rush, the first purchaser hereof, the which tract was re-patented and granted to William Rush the first purchaser aforesaid the 10th January, 1704.

William Rush was living 22 July 1689 when he deeded the above 100 acres to his son, but what became of him remains to be determined. Because of the three generations all bearing the same name it is difficult to distinguish what event pertains to whom. The third William Rush died 1707-8 and it was Joshua Hudson who was one of his creditors (Westmoreland Co. Deeds and Wills, Book 4, p. 165)

Francis Kirtley, apparently the immigrant, was b. probably about 1690, and wa m. circa 1 712. Probably he came first to Falmouth and later resided in Spotsylvania Co. His wife was Margaret, dau. of John Roberts, of Spots., who d. 1724 (Crozier's Spots. Rec., p. 1). Our earliest knowledge of John Roberts is found in Stafford Rec. Liber., p. 267, April 11, 1705, John Trammill of Stafford sells to John Roberts of the same county 100 a. on the south side of Potomac Creek, part of a tract granted Francis Waddington now decd. and sold by his son Francis Waddington to the sd. Trammill. On July 12, 1718 John Roberts is granted two patents (S.L.O. Book 11, page 376), one for 194 a. on the S. side of Rappahannock River in the fork in St. Mary's Par. beginning at the riverside at the upper end of an island, etc., the other for 100 a. "beginning on the north side of the mountain view." At the time of the patent he was living in Overwharton par., Stafford Co. By May 12, 1722 (Crozier's Spots. Rec., p. 88), as John Roberts, of St. George's Par., Spots. Co., he deeded this 100 a. on the mountain run as a gift to his son-in-law, Francis Kirtley.

John Roberts, Sr. is commonly referred to as John of Spots.
Born 1657/58 in New Kent County, Virginia. He married Elizabeth Trammell the daughter of John Trammell who conveyed to him the land described below.
Land owner and planter of Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co., Virginia in 1705 when he purchased for 4700 pounds of tobacco a parcel of 100 acres from John Trammel on the south side of Potomac Creek. In 1718 he lived in what was then Essex County, Virginia. He died in St. George's Parish, Spotsylvania Co., Virginia in 1724 leaving five children viz: John, Margaret, George, Mary and Benjamin. Each of his three sons also had a son named Benjamin. As new counties formed, the holdings which had been John's passed into Orange County in 1734 and into Culpeper County in 1748. He bought and sold several parcels of land betweeen 1705 and 1724. Transcripts on file. His two older sons John and George were born prior to 1703 as they had reached their majority when his will was probated in 1724. The youngest, Benjamin, was born after 1703 (probably about 1707) as he was a minor subject to the appointment of a guardian under Virginia law when the will was probated. His will was dated September 10, 1724 and proved November 3rd, 1724.
All the land described by John Roberts in his will is, conforming with other deeds by which he acquired the property in the "Great Fork of the Rappahannock" that is in the area now bounded by the Rappahannock and Rapidan Rivers, in modern Culpeper County, Virginia. At least some of that property is now owned by T.O. Madden Jr. and his son Tom Madden. Your compiler has stood upon the land with Tom Madden. Mountain Run flows from western Culpeper County through the town of Culpeper and empties into the Rappahannock at the eastern boundary of Culpeper. Flat Run flows from northern central Culpeper southward into Mountain Run. The confluence of these two streams is about three miles west of Kelly's Ford on the Rappahannock. Your compiler has searched these lands. They are currently tilled farmland with a few dwellings on them. These are relatively large farms. There is no road at the confluence of the streams. Much of this land can only be accessed or even seen by entering onto private lands.

120 Biography

In 1635, the immigrant William Rush arrived in America at age 20, aboard the ship Matthew of London.

A "young man of Dutch descent, whom Sir Thomas Luntsford brought over with Thomas Terrell, John and Lawrence Washington and others." Originally the Rush family were English Quakers.[1]
William Rush I, II, III, IV

Following is my working conjecture of the four generations, based on how dates and other information from various sources might fit together (see Research Notes, below for how I got here). ~ Liz Shifflett, April 1, 2016

William Rush (1615-1689 91/2), immigrant, arrived 1635, age 20, aboard the Mathew [left infant son in England[2]]. Acquired lands on the Machodeck river in Westmoreland County, Virginia, in 1644, as evidenced by deeds found at Montross, Westmorland County.[1]

William Rush (c1635-1691/2), transported in 1650 by Sir Thomas Huntsford, Bnt., [joining his father[2]]. Married Ann Grey (b after 1639). Their children: William, Elizabeth (m Jossua Hudson), and Mary (m Philip Peyton). Married Dorothy (widow of Christopher Thomas) in 1686.

William Rush (c1660-1707) m Elizabeth Perry
William Rush (before 1687 - not a minor when his father died)
Benjamin Rush (after 1687 - division of father's property indicated another son, but not named, indicating he was a minor), married Amy, widow of James Elkins

William Rush (before 1687-1735) married Mary; moved to what became Orange County, Virginia, where he died.

Anne Grey

Wife of William Rush prior to 1658 and mother of Elizabeth, m Jossua Hudson, and Ann, m Philip Peyton.

Anne was the daughter of Francis Grey by his wife Alice Moreman, who were married in 1638 and moved to Virginia (from Maryland) in 1647.[1]

If Anne was born in 1639 and married at 16 (fairly common for the time and place), marriage to William Rush would have been 1655.

Dorothy

Probably the wife of the same William Rush who married Anne Grey, after Anne passed away, although the Milams of Virginia site has her as marrying that William's father.[3] Apparently no Rush children either way.

In 1686, William married Dorothy, the widow of Christopher Thomas. Dorothy was shown as William's widow in January 1691/2 court records. Her next husband was William Bennett.[3]

Research Notes

I had originally estimated a 1625 birth year guess based on his marriage in 1686 to Dorothy (widow of Christopher Thomas), who was William's widow in January 1691/2 court records. (Dorothy's next husband was William Bennett.)[3]

However, his son's birth year is estimated (in WikiTree) as 1630, based on a 1658 deed of land to him by his father-in-law Francis Grey. And that profile shows him (husband of Ann Grey) to be the same William Rush who married (2) Dorothy, widow of Christopher Thomas.

From the Owsley Family Historical Society (OFHS), citing the following "lease and release of land recorded in Westmoreland County Deed Book 8-2, p. 145-147", we have three known generations of William Rush in Virginia:[4]

"William Rush of Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co., Va. to Rev. David Stuart, of St. Paul?s Parish, Stafford Co., Va., being 100 acres purchased from Robert Howson by William Rush, the grandfather of the above mentioned grantor and lesser, and granted by deed of gift to William Rush his son, the father of the above grantor, as by deed bearing date the 22 July 1689, relation thereunto being had, may more at large appear, and now descended by inheritance to William Rush, the grantor thereof, the grandson to the above William Rush, the first purchaser hereof, the which tract was re-patented and granted to William Rush the first purchaser aforesaid the 10th January, 1704."

The Milams of Virginia also has this entry, headed 25 JUL 1733 WILLS AND DEEDS, page 223 ? 224, and another following, 26 JUL 1733 WILLS AND DEEDS, page 224, in which Mary, wife of William Rush {IV}, relinquishes her dower rights.[3]

this site attributes Willam m Mary as {III} & born-died before 1687-1735 in Orange County, Virginia. That site shows the following generations:[1]

William b 1615 (m Ann, born 1639, in 1655)
William b 1666 (m Elizabeth) d 1707 (later in site shows b 1659-60)
William b before 1687 (m Mary) d 1735

The OFHS site also notes:

"Two men named William Rush are known to have come to America in the first half of the 17th-century. The first William Rush arrived in 1635 aboard the Matthew when he was 20 years old. The second William Rush was transported in 1650 by Sir Thomas Huntsford, Bnt. It seems likely that one of these men was the father of...William Rush [who married] married Anne, daughter of Francis Gray."

Text on the WikiTree profile page for William m Anne Grey (Rush-700) appears to combine the the William Rushes that the Milams of Virginia website refers to separately as {I} {II} and {III}.

William Rush b 1615 (arrived 1635 aboard the Mathew) {OFHS; needs better}

William Rush married by 20 November 1658 to Anne Grey {deed}; still married 7 June 1667 {date of her father's will}

William Rush b 1637-9; m Anne 7/21/1652; died 1707[1]{needs better}

William Rush, Attorney for Mr. Thomas Davis and his wife Ann, Oct. 1663 {court record} Milams site attributes as {II} & includes related entries - 1654, a Captain Thomas Davis gave 100 acres of land to William Rush (apparently same land Mr Davis now selling by way of William). Captain Davis rec'd 1651/2 600 acres in Northumberland Co. for transporting 12 persons.

William Rush died by Jan. 1691/2 {court record} Milams site attributes as {I}

27 JAN 1691/92 ORDER BOOK, page 46. On petition of Dorothy Rush (relic of William Rush {I}, and earlier relic of Christopher Thomas)....ordered that William Horton and John Pratt do lay out and divide the land of William Rush {I} together with housing and orchard, etc.... now in possession {lease} of Charles Ashton

William Rush gives land Jan 3, 1673/4 to Jossua Hudson:{deed}

"for natural love and affection I bear unto my daughter Elizabeth....as also a marriadge contracted and solemnized betweene Jossua Hudson of Upper Machoteck and my said daughter....100 acres. Same 100 acres that Francis Gray, deceased, in consideration of natural affection he bore unto his daughter Anne did give unto William Rush, husband unto Anne...."
Note: Milams attributes to {II} (who married Ann Grey), but the text reads more like it should be {III}, who married Elizabeth. (Dates make that unlikely, though. Marriage contract in 1673, if daughter was 18, would call for birth in 1655.)
OFHS site also shows William m Ann as father of Elizabeth m Hudson.

William Rush died before 26 Jan. 1708/9, relic Elizabeth {probate/inventory} Milams site attributes as {III} and shows activity by William Rush after that as {II}, who isn't attributed as having a will or a reference in a deed as "dec'd"; this page has death in 1707 for the William m Ann Grey[1] (Milams site has William m Grey as {II})

William Rush of Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co., in 1678 gave 200 acres to Philip Payton, husband of William's daughter Mary Rush. {deed} Milams site attributes to {II}

Wiliam Rush, son and heir of William Rush, deceased... (land purchased from Robert Howson on 12 Jan 1664/5) {22 July 1689, grant} Milams site attributes to {II} and {III}

William Rush deceased early 1691 (Milams site, attributing to {II})

Conclusion? Distilling the information from the different sites, I think the following might be a possibility. ~ Noland-165 01:10, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

William Rush (1615-1689 91/2), immigrant, arrived 1635, age 20, aboard the Mathew (left infant son in England[5]). Acquired lands on the Machodeck river in Westmoreland County, Virginia, in 1644, as evidenced by deeds found at Montross, Westmorland County.[1]

123 Lemuel Cherry [C1a8p4], son of Willis W Cherry and Sarah _____ of Duplin Co NC, was born in 1779 in Duplin Co (he was age 71 in the 1850 Duplin Co census). Lemuel was named in his father's will, and at times was called "Lamb."

Lemuel married Sarah Bizzell (per source 99), his neighbor, and daughter of William Bizzell and Hannah _____, about the end of the 1790s. She was born in 1771, and must have died within a year or two, because Lemuel married Rockselena Duncan in Duplin Co on 20 January 1801 (per mg records, Duplin Co). Bond was given by Hardy Bizzell, who was Lemuel's brother-in-law when he was still married to Sarah Bizzell, and the witness was William Dickson, the county clerk.

Rockselena's father may have been Isaac Duncan who lived next door to Lemuel in 1790; there were also other Duncan families in the county at the time.

Lemuel in 1810 and 1820 lived close to his brother William Cherry, of about the same age. Lemuel was an ensign in the 9th Company of Duplin Co and served in the War of 1812 (shown as "Samuel Cherry" in some printed books).

His wife Rockselena was born in the early 1780s. He had five children by 1810 (all under age 10) and four slaves, seven children by 1820, and then ten by 1830.

Rockselena died between 1830 and 1850, and in 1850 Lemuel was living with Elender Young, probably his sister's in-law.

Nancy (Cherry) Young was living with Duncan Cherry, Lemuel's son, two doors from Lemuel. "Lemuel Cherry Died September the 6th 1859" per family bible record. Mr A R Hicks, age 46, was the administrator for Lemuel's estate.

Lemuel's children were-

a. dau Cherry, b 1802-1804, married or died in 1820s. (35hij)

b. son Cherry, b 1802-1804 (35hi)

c. dau Cherry, b 1805-1810, married or died in 1820s. (35hij)

a. Ann Cherry, b 1857 in Duplin Co NC.

b. Martha Cherry, b Dec 1859 in Duplin Co NC. (B,144,35knq)

3. George T Cherry, b 1838 in Duplin Co NC. In 1860 he lived in or near Mount Olive, and had married Hipsy(?) Ann _____ about 1859. She was born in NC in 1840. George was a Private in the 21st Company, 36th Regiment in the CSA. He was asge 23 in 1861. "T T Cherry dide August the 29 1868 in his 30 year" per family bible. They had a daughter by 1860-

a. dau Cherry, b Jan 1860 in Duplin Co NC.

A Mr Kind... Tou... (?), age 66, was living with George and Hipsy in 1860. (35nq, 144)

a. Leah June Cherry, b 1875 (396s)

William Dickson was the county clerk in 1779, 1784, 1786, 1801, and perhaps in other years. William Parker, age 17, was living with Lemuel and Elender in 1850. A R Hicks, the administrator of Lemuel's estate, was married to Athamesia _____. She was born in 1816, and by 1860 had nine children aged between 19 years and 10 months.

In 1784 there were only two Bizzell families, and in the same district as Lemuel's father's home. They were: William Bizzell (next door to Willis) with two males under age 21 (or one male under 21, one between 21 and 60, and one ? William ? over age 60) and four females; and James Bizzell with a boy under age 21 and two females. William Bizzell and his wife Hannah (called "Hanner" in William's will) moved from VA to Edgecombe Co NC in 1763, and on to Duplin Co in 1772. They settled on the north side of Goshen Swamp, and the east side of White Oak Branch. They had the following children: son James, born 1760, died in 1822, married Mary Bowden; son Arthur, born 1762, died in 1822, married Elizabeth Ann Turner; daughter Nancy, born in 1764, never married, and died in 1830; daughter Patty was born in 1765, married _____ Worrell; son Hardy, born in 1769, died in 1848, and married Margaret Denmark; daughter Sarah, born in 1771, married Lemuel Cherry, probably at the end of the 1780s; son Isaac, born in 1773, died before 1850, and married Nancy Hooten & Zilpha Musgrave; daughter Elizabeth, born in 1775, married William Goodman; daughter Rachel, born in 1776, married James Woodward; daughter Mary, born in 1779, married _____ Worrell. Not all of William Bizzell's children were named in his will. Son James Bizzell, not named, was born in Nansemond Co VA in 1760 and married Mary Bowden on 9 January 1781 in Duplin Co; she was a daughter of Bryan Bowden of Duplin Co. James' children were: Elizabeth, born in 1785; Elijah, born in 1787; Catherine, born in 1788; Sarah, born in 1789; Nancy, born in 1790; James, born in 1791; Samuel, born in 1797; daughter Molesey, born in 1798; and Alesy, born in 1798 (probably a twin of Molesey).

William Bizzell patented 90 acres in Duplin Co on 22 July 1774, land on the north side of Goshen Swamp and on the east side of White Oak branch near Nicholas Bowden's plantation, and joining Blanchard's and Bizzell's land (Grant 8341, page 8). Therefore, William Bizzell was of an age to be the father of Lemuel Cherry's wife Sarah Bizzell, and lived close to Lemuel's father Willis W Cherry. William Bizzell's 6 August 1800 Duplin Co will named wife Hanner, some grandchildren, and sons and daughters. One named daughter was "Sarah Cherry." We can be sure that this Sarah Cherry was Lemuel's wife because there were only two Bizzell families in Duplin Co in 1784: James Bizzell and William Bizzell, and James was a son of William; William lived next to Willis W Cherry; Willis provided the bond for the 1781 marriage between James Bizzell and Mary Bowden. William Bizzell's 6 August 1800 Duplin Co will named his wife Hannah, daughter Sarah Cherry, son Hardy Bizzell, and other children and grandchildren. Therefore, because William was a grandfather, and most of his children were married adults, he was of an age to be Lemuel's father-in-law. And Willis provided the bond for the marriage of Sarah Bizzell to James Hurst in Duplin Co on 8 November 1781. This could not be Lemuel's wife since Lemuel's wife was born in 1771; Sarah of the 1781 marriage must have been a widowed daughter-in-law of William Bizzell, and Willis Cherry provided the bond for his neighbor's widow. William's daughter, named in his 1800 will, was Sarah Cherry, not Sarah Hurst. (68,99, B,105,1088,C, 35maeijnq)

CHERRY, Lemuel (I40939)
 
124 Lemuel Cherry [C1a8p4], son of Willis W Cherry and Sarah _____ of Duplin Co NC, was born in 1779 in Duplin Co (he was age 71 in the 1850 Duplin Co census). Lemuel was named in his father's will, and at times was called "Lamb." Lemuel married Sarah Bizzell (per source 99), his neighbor, and daughter of William Bizzell and Hannah _____, about the end of the 1790s.

Rockselena's father may have been Isaac Duncan who lived next door to Lemuel in 1790; there were also other Duncan families in the county at the time.

William Dickson was the county clerk in 1779, 1784, 1786, 1801, and perhaps in other years. William Parker, age 17, was living with Lemuel and Elender in 1850. A R Hicks, the administrator of Lemuel's estate, was married to Athamesia _____. She was born in 1816, and by 1860 had nine children aged between 19 years and 10 months.

In 1784 there were only two Bizzell families, and in the same district as Lemuel's father's home. They were: William Bizzell (next door to Willis) with two males under age 21 (or one male under 21, one between 21 and 60, and one ? William ? over age 60) and four females; and James Bizzell with a boy under age 21 and two females. William Bizzell and his wife Hannah (called "Hanner" in William's will) moved from VA to Edgecombe Co NC in 1763, and on to Duplin Co in 1772. They settled on the north side of Goshen Swamp, and the east side of White Oak Branch. They had the following children: son James, born 1760, died in 1822, married Mary Bowden; son Arthur, born 1762, died in 1822, married Elizabeth Ann Turner; daughter Nancy, born in 1764, never married, and died in 1830; daughter Patty was born in 1765, married _____ Worrell; son Hardy, born in 1769, died in 1848, and married Margaret Denmark; daughter Sarah, born in 1771, married Lemuel Cherry, probably at the end of the 1780s; son Isaac, born in 1773, died before 1850, and married Nancy Hooten & Zilpha Musgrave; daughter Elizabeth, born in 1775, married William Goodman; daughter Rachel, born in 1776, married James Woodward; daughter Mary, born in 1779, married _____ Worrell. Not all of William Bizzell's children were named in his will. Son James Bizzell, not named, was born in Nansemond Co VA in 1760 and married Mary Bowden on 9 January 1781 in Duplin Co; she was a daughter of Bryan Bowden of Duplin Co. James' children were: Elizabeth, born in 1785; Elijah, born in 1787; Catherine, born in 1788; Sarah, born in 1789; Nancy, born in 1790; James, born in 1791; Samuel, born in 1797; daughter Molesey, born in 1798; and Alesy, born in 1798 (probably a twin of Molesey).

William Bizzell patented 90 acres in Duplin Co on 22 July 1774, land on the north side of Goshen Swamp and on the east side of White Oak branch near Nicholas Bowden's plantation, and joining Blanchard's and Bizzell's land (Grant 8341, page 8). Therefore, William Bizzell was of an age to be the father of Lemuel Cherry's wife Sarah Bizzell, and lived close to Lemuel's father Willis W Cherry. William Bizzell's 6 August 1800 Duplin Co will named wife Hanner, some grandchildren, and sons and daughters. One named daughter was "Sarah Cherry." We can be sure that this Sarah Cherry was Lemuel's wife because there were only two Bizzell families in Duplin Co in 1784: James Bizzell and William Bizzell, and James was a son of William; William lived next to Willis W Cherry; Willis provided the bond for the 1781 marriage between James Bizzell and Mary Bowden. William Bizzell's 6 August 1800 Duplin Co will named his wife Hannah, daughter Sarah Cherry, son Hardy Bizzell, and other children and grandchildren. Therefore, because William was a grandfather, and most of his children were married adults, he was of an age to be Lemuel's father-in-law. And Willis provided the bond for the marriage of Sarah Bizzell to James Hurst in Duplin Co on 8 November 1781. This could not be Lemuel's wife since Lemuel's wife was born in 1771; Sarah of the 1781 marriage must have been a widowed daughter-in-law of William Bizzell, and Willis Cherry provided the bond for his neighbor's widow. William's daughter, named in his 1800 will, was Sarah Cherry, not Sarah Hurst. (68,99, B,105,1088,C, 35maeijnq)

133 "Sir Francis Kirtley was the progenitor of the Kirtleys in America. He was born ca. 1690 in Wales, and he migrated to the colonies in 1710 and stopped at Falmouth, Virginia. He brought with him the Kirtley crest which the motto is "Confide in God." While living in Falmouth, he was a merchant. He was a planter and a land speculator and by patent owned many acres in the Spotsylvania area. He was a member of St. Patrick's parish and in 1731 was appointed one of the first church wardens. At this time in Virginia history, the Episcopal church, the American version of the Church of England, was the original religious denomination of Virginia. In 1720, he served as captain of the militia and later served in the French and Indian wars. In 1721, Sir Francis married Margaret Roberts and they had six children. Sir Francis died in Culpepper County, Virginia, in 1763." RELATIONSHIP OF THE KIRTLEY FAMILY TO BULLITTSBURG BAPTIST CHURCH

Certified as a Revolutionary War soldier on Hitz's list. Military Service

A special thank-you to my father Thomas Herbert Dean who researched the line from Richard and whose work established Richard as a Revolutionary War soldier.

Four descendants of the Jeremiah Deans family line are 35-37 marker Y-DNA matches to a descen dant of Richard Dean b. 1760; that is, they and Richard Dean very likely share a common ances tor, as yet unidentified. I have speculated on all lines going back to a patriarch Thomas De ans. To see results, please go to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~ladeanxx/dnaresul ts.htm.

NOTE:
That Thomas is the patriarch is speculative and does not agree with the Jeremiah Deans famil y genealogists' assumption; however, my prediction is based on what evidence I have at the mo ment. I am open to new information-hopeful that new information will surface. Richard b. 17 60 may have been the son of Richard, James, or Henry. For the purposes of connecting him wit h Jeremiah (since their descendants have a 35-37 Y-DNA match) I am listing my Richard b. 176 0 as the son of Richard b. 1739 or of James b. 1735 or of Henry b. 1740 with Thomas as the p atriarch..

1. Thomas Deens b. c. 1710 enters records in Edgecombe, NC, in 1744; the last record is 1750 . (This Thomas is not necessarily the patriarch unless evidence proves so.)
(the following are not necessarily brothers until evidence proves so)

2. James b. c. 1735 enters the records in 1759, and disappears after 1774 (d. REV?)

2. Richard b. c. 1736 enters the record in 1760; he may have died before 1782 census.

2. Daniel b. c. 1737 enters the record in 1768, and moved to Wayne Co (evidence in the fo rm of deeds and wills supports that these are the children of the Daniel in Edgecombe and Nas h Co, NC (http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=extendedfamily&id=I10842) m. Eliza beth
3. Dempsy b. 1760 d. after 1827 AL (son of Daniel)

Males: 20-30 = 1
Females: 5-10 =1
Females: 20-30 =1

Commentary: Maybell Daugherty indicated on her mariage license that her name was spelled "Dougherty". It is possible that the 1830 census data is for James Robert Dougherty, Grandfather of Maybell Daugherty. The ages of the adults and children are about right. If so, then it would imply that James Robert Dougherty had an older sister that is not presently recorded in the family history.

NEWSPAPER Issue of Friday, JANUARY 4, 1884
COWETA County News

Died, Dec. 24th, 1883, Mrs. Hannah Smith Archer. The deceased was born in Pendleton district, S.C. on Sept. 12, 1807. She moved to Newnan, Ga. in 1836 and there united with the Presbyterian church the following year. She lived a consistent member there until 1844 when she moved to Carroll. There being at that time no church here of that order, she then united with the Methodist Episcopal church, of which she lived a consistent member until her death, dying in full triumph of a gospel faith. Her funeral, conducted by Rev. A.C. Reese, at the Second Baptist church on Christmas Day, was an impressive event, and witnessed by a large concourse of people.

NOTE: The above Obituary provided by Cynthia Archer, a descendent of this Archer line.

COMMENTARY: At this time information is not available as to why Hannah H. Bailey Archer's name is shown as Mrs. Hannah Smith Archer. Research continues.

COMMENTARY BY CYNTHIA ARCHER: Noah Archer appears in the 1840 Federal Census in Coweta County. I assumed that Hannah moved after Noah's death to be closer to her family in Carroll County. Land Grant records I saw on GenWeb verifies their presence in Coweta County.

194 A MOTHER IN ISRAEL WHO HAS THREE CHILDREN ON THE FOREIGN FIELD
Biblical Recorder, Raleigh NC, Wednesday, December 8, 1915

[Photographs and the following sketch were kindly furnished the Recorder by Miss Fanny V. Harrill, Myers Park, Charlotte, N. C. ]

In the little town of Shelby, Cleaveland County, North Carolina, there is a ?Mother in Israel? who has three children on the foreign field: two sons and one daughter. This is a very rare case: doubtless there is not another in North Carolina. This is Mrs Jane Price Bostick, widow of Samuel E Bostick who died about six years ago. She is now eighty-one years old. She can attend church, administer to the sick, visit the neighbors and discharge many domestic duties.

Mrs Bostick is of Scotch-Irish descent, being the daughter of Benjamin Suttle and Sarah Baxter. Her grandfather, William baxter, came directly from Ireland and settled in Rutherford County. (two of his sons were Governors of their states: William of Tenessee and Elisha of Arkansas). Mrs Bostick is the mother of fifteen children, seven of whom are living. During the Civil War, though a very young woman, she must be needs be father and mother both to her family, and she gathered her children about her and taught them the ?Old, Old Story?, and instilled into them great and noble principles for Christian living, and throughout the youth of these children they had the Christian example of their parents, - and is it strange that God should have called three of these children to do His work on a foreign field?

The first child to go was Rev. G. P. Bostick, who went to Chins in 1889, and is now in PoChow. Mrs Bostick was in feeble health at the time (twenty-six years ago), and she felt as though she would never live until this son?s return. But her strenght increased as the years passed, and she has had the happy experience of seeing him return four times. More than this: her unceasing prayers for God?s work in the foreign field were answered by the call of the daughter, Miss Attie T Bostick, who went abroad in 1900, and is now in An Hwien, and Rev. Wade Dobbins Bostick, who went in 1909, and is now in PoChow. These two children she has welcomed home once each.

In the fullest sense of the word she is living daily in the work of these children. Her prayers are full of their work. She is well posted in missions, as well as the national affairs of China. This requires a gtreat deal of reading which she enjoys. But next to the reading of God?s Word, her greatest happiness is in reading the letters from these children to the receipt of which she looks forward with great eagerness.

196 A second time all Cardigan was wrested from the Norman hands ; and things now wore so threatening an aspect that Henry II led an army into Wales in 1165, although, according to one Welsh account, Rhys had made his peace with the king in 1164, and had even visited him in England. The causes assigned by the Welsh chronicle for this fresh outbreak of hostility are that Henry failed to keep his promises ? presumably of restitution ? and secondly that Roger, earl of Clare, was honourably receiving Walter, the murderer of Rhys's nephew Einion. For the third time we now read that Cardigan was overrun and the Norman castles burnt; but it is possible that the events assigned by the 'Annales Cambrę' to the year 1165 are the same as those assigned by the 'Brut y Tywysogion' to 1163. DE CLARE, Roger 2nd Earl of Hertford (I672075682)
 
197 A SHORT HISTORY OF FONMON CASTLE AND THE FAMILIES WHO HAVE LIVED THERE

At the beginning

No one quite knows when the site at Fonmon was first occupied. The legend that one Oliver St John came with Fitzhamon into Glamorgan around 1090, as one of the Twelve Knights, is clearly false, as can be seen from the following notes.

There is some evidence of a timber structure prior to the first indications of stone building dating from around 1180. The first stone castle was almost certainly raised by one Adam de Port (later, Adam de St John). The de Port?s were great lords under the early Normans. Adam?s great grandfather, Hugh de Port having come over in 1066, ended up Lord of Basing (as in Basingstoke) and held 53 other manors in Hampshire, 13 in Kent, and more back in Normandy.
Adam, as Lord of Basing, married Mabel the heiress to the French St. John family. They had three children Alice, William, and Robert. Alice was born in Pembroke so there was obviously a Welsh connection by then, and family history says that the Fonmon manor, amounting to 900 acres, was bought as a ?knight?s fee? for either William or Robert, the holding owing allegiance to the Umphreville?s, Lords of the neighboring manor of Penmark. Again without much evidence, the story is that Robert died young, so William inherited both Basing and Fonmon.

Adam de Port meanwhile had taken the surname of his wife, the St John heiress, so that Fonmon is more associated with the name St. John than de Port. The noble house of St. John is today represented by Anthony, 22nd Lord St John of Bletsoe; Henry, 8th Viscount Bolingbroke and 9th Viscount St. John of the Lydiard Tregoze branch, and Sir Walter St. John-Mildmay, 11th Baronet of Farley.

The stone castle initially consisted of a single block just 8m x 13m placed above a steep ravine, conveniently with water beneath. This would have likely been surrounded by further stone walls and timber outbuildings, to form a generally defensible whole.

Additions were then made in the early/mid 13th C including a square tower to the south and a round tower adjoining the main block. Eventually the curtain wall joining the north and south ranges was filled in to give an approximately ?U? shaped castle with a courtyard extending to the West beyond the hollow of the ?U?. A substantial tithe barn was added, later converted for carriage storage, and used today as stables and garaging.

By the late 13th C. the St. Johns had lost Basing with William being noted as marrying Isobel Combmartin in 1266 at ?Faumont? in Wales, and their grandson being styled Sir John St. John, Castle Faumont, Glamorganshire. He made an advantageous marriage to Elizabeth Umfreville the heiress to Penmark, thus securing himself as the principal land holder in the area.

The family status and the castle itself, then remained very much unchanged for around 150 years.

From the Wars of the Roses to the Civil War

In 1425 Sir Oliver St. John married Margaret Beauchamp heiress to Bletsoe in Bedfordshire. After his death in 1437, Margaret married John Beaufort, 1st Duke of Somerset, grandson of John of Gaunt, 1stDuke of Lancaster. This catapulted the family (Margaret and Oliver had had six children) into the heart of the Wars of the Roses. By the end in 1485, her grandson Henry Tudor triumphed, becoming King Henry VII of England, with Margaret?s St. John children as his uncles and aunts, and their children as first cousins.

Sir John St John, Oliver and Margaret?s eldest son, eventually inherited Fonmon, Bletsoe and Lydiard Tregoze, the Beauchamp property in Wiltshire, so unsurprisingly ceased to live at Fonmon and the castle was occupied by tenants from amongst the Welsh gentry.

At some point in the early 16th century a short north wing was added built over a characteristic barrel vaulted semi-basement.

Perhaps more surprising given the turbulent times that followed, the St Johns maintained their status being enobled as Lords St John of Bletsoe in 1558 and created Earls of Bolingbroke in 1624. Despite their high rank they retained Fonmon, although by then it was the hands of junior branches of the family. The estate map of 1622 by Evans Mouse is dedicated to Sir Anthony St John 2nd son of the 3rdLord St John.

Sir Anthony having no male heir, Fonmon passed to his cousin Sir John St John of Lydiard Tregoze. With the advent of Civil War the St John family divided, those of Bletsoe largely backing Parliament and those of Lydiard Tregose backing the King. Sir John, having lost three sons in the King?s cause, then had to pay reparations (fines) to Parliament, and so sold the Welsh estate in 1656 thus bringing to an end nearly 500 years of ownership by his family.

The later 17th and the 18th century

Fonmon was bought by Colonel Philip Jones the ggggggggreat-grandfather of the present owner. Sometimes styled Colonel Lord Jones, Philip was one of Oliver Cromwell?s right hand men. Controller of the Lord Protector?s household, member of the council of nine, an MP and a Privy Councillor, godfather to Richard Cromwell, his influence increased as Cromwell?s health declined. It was no wonder that an English MP was heard to moan ?We cannot longer have this country ruled from a small castle in Wales.?

As befitted a new owner of rising status, Colonel Philip and his son Sir Oliver Jones made addition to Fonmon. This took the form of a substantial north wing rising over three floors above cellars and a water cistern.

Colonel Philip survived both the Restoration and Impeachment largely through having had the good sense to refuse to sign King Charles I death warrant. He is listed on the ?regicide?papers as being ?absent upon his Welsh estates?. Being away at Fonmon stood him in good stead when Charles II regained the throne as the one group that Charles did not forgive were those who had actually signed his father?s death warrant.

The Jones? then continued to occupy Fonmon largely unaltered for several decades. Instead, as with the St John?s, they married well into the local gentry. Sir Oliver to the Buttons of Dyffryn, then two Roberts to the Edwins of Llanvihangel and the Forests of Minehead.

After a third Robert married Jane Seys heiress to the Seys? of Boverton, the estate had grown to nearly 8,000 acres stretching from Llantwit Major in the West to beyond Barry in the East; and from the sea to approaching Llantrisant in the north, although not all was contiguous. The Seys (or Sais) family were one of the oldest of Glamorgan with Jane?s father Evan claiming to be 21st in descent from Blethyn ap Maenarch and one Aeneas Seys said to have been ?given to the Conqueror as hostage for the good behavior of the people of Glamorgan?.

Robert II was a religious man and he and his wife regularly welcomed John and Charles Wesley to Fonmon. He died when Robert III was but a child and his education was determined by Mrs. Jones and the Wesley brothers. This proved a hard schooling, and as soon as he was able the young man escaped to Paris which he greatly enjoyed.

He returned determined to put his wealth to improving his home. He pensioned off his mother and Charles Wesley recorded ?Sadly our welcome at the Castle is not what it once was?; as Robert set to work to celebrate more earthly pursuits.

He employed Paty as Architect and Stocking as Plasterer to assist him in the modernization. The two rooms forming the original Norman first floor hall were combined to create a library/salon running the full width of the Castle East to West. This was then extravagantly decorated in the Rococco style and fitted with gilded mirrors from designs by Thomas Johnson.

Four rooms from the central range linking north to south were combined to make a new main hall, new staircases were installed and other rooms redesigned and redecorated. Finally he erected a sundial on the SE tower to celebrate the completion.

The fine work at this period has led Fonmon to have a Grade 1 listed status, and the family finds it ironic that if someone applied today to make similar alterations to a building dating from 1430 they would be turned down out of hand. He then remodeled the curtilage walls and raised the old Watch Tower in the SE corner of the grounds to be a folly tower alongside the carriage drive approach.
Finally Robert installed a new layout of gardens although sadly we retain no record of his plantings.

Unfortunately, as well as the excellent investment in Fonmon, Robert III also invested in racehorses and high living in London, with the inevitable result that he fell into debt and had to flee to France. Although he eventually returned to die peacefully at Fonmon, nevertheless large portions of the estate were sold and Fonmon has never really ?had money? since.

The modern era

Robert Jones III died in 1793. His son was a soldier who served in the Peninsular War and later as General Jones became Master of the Horse to the Duke of York. The castle, somewhat neglected, slipped into another 100 years of sleep. In 1880 the general?s son, Robert Jones IV made some minor further changes, adding two rooms to the South Wing; changing the principal entrance from the south front to the west ; and adding a new porch to the hall.

Robert IV?s son Oliver Henry had no children and the castle passed jointly to his nieces Beatrice and Clara Valpy. Beatrice never married so that Clara eventually become the sole heiress. She had married Sir Seymour Boothby and the castle is now owned by Sir Brooke Boothby their grandson.

After a third Robert married Jane Seys heiress to the Seys? of Boverton, the estate had grown to nearly 8,000 acres stretching from Llantwit Major in the West to beyond Barry in the East; and from the sea to approaching Llantrisant in the north, although not all was contiguous. The Seys (or Sais) family were one of the oldest of Glamorgan with Jane?s father Evan claiming to be 21st in descent from Blethyn ap Maenarch and one Aeneas Seys said to have been ?given to the Conqueror as hostage for the good behavior of the people of Glamorgan?.

Robert II was a religious man and he and his wife regularly welcomed John and Charles Wesley to Fonmon. He died when Robert III was but a child and his education was determined by Mrs. Jones and the Wesley brothers. This proved a hard schooling, and as soon as he was able the young man escaped to Paris which he greatly enjoyed.

He returned determined to put his wealth to improving his home. He pensioned off his mother and Charles Wesley recorded ?Sadly our welcome at the Castle is not what it once was?; as Robert set to work to celebrate more earthly pursuits.

He employed Paty as Architect and Stocking as Plasterer to assist him in the modernization. The two rooms forming the original Norman first floor hall were combined to create a library/salon running the full width of the Castle East to West. This was then extravagantly decorated in the Rococco style and fitted with gilded mirrors from designs by Thomas Johnson.

Four rooms from the central range linking north to south were combined to make a new main hall, new staircases were installed and other rooms redesigned and redecorated. Finally he erected a sundial on the SE tower to celebrate the completion.

The fine work at this period has led Fonmon to have a Grade 1 listed status, and the family finds it ironic that if someone applied today to make similar alterations to a building dating from 1430 they would be turned down out of hand. He then remodeled the curtilage walls and raised the old Watch Tower in the SE corner of the grounds to be a folly tower alongside the carriage drive approach.
Finally Robert installed a new layout of gardens although sadly we retain no record of his plantings.

Unfortunately, as well as the excellent investment in Fonmon, Robert III also invested in racehorses and high living in London, with the inevitable result that he fell into debt and had to flee to France. Although he eventually returned to die peacefully at Fonmon, nevertheless large portions of the estate were sold and Fonmon has never really ?had money? since.

The modern era

Robert Jones III died in 1793. His son was a soldier who served in the Peninsular War and later as General Jones became Master of the Horse to the Duke of York. The castle, somewhat neglected, slipped into another 100 years of sleep. In 1880 the general?s son, Robert Jones IV made some minor further changes, adding two rooms to the South Wing; changing the principal entrance from the south front to the west ; and adding a new porch to the hall.

Robert IV?s son Oliver Henry had no children and the castle passed jointly to his nieces Beatrice and Clara Valpy. Beatrice never married so that Clara eventually become the sole heiress. She had married Sir Seymour Boothby and the castle is now owned by Sir Brooke Boothby their grandson.

At Appomattox on April 9,1865, there were only twenty-five members of the companyremaining to surrender.
