5 First Generation 1. Nicholas Andrew Harvey, son of Edmund Francis (Ed) (Eddie) Harvey and Amy Lou Hagen, was born on 4 May 2005 in Blacksburg, Va.. General Notes: Nicholas was delivered via C-Section at Montgomery County Regional Hospital. Noted by Amy Hagen Harvey in May 2006: "One interesting tidbit you might want to add [to the family story] is that Ed's grandfather on his mom's side (Theodore Chorazak) had the middle name Andrew. We liked the name Andrew before we found that out but it helped us "seal the deal" on choosing that for his middle name." 1 Nicholas at the Piano Showing his talent at Gramma's house in Salem (2014)

Big Ed with grand daughter Emma Taken in the Blacksburg Regional Hospital in Blacksburg (2007) 5. Eleanor Joanne Chorazak, daughter of Theodore Andrew Chorazak and Wanda Miazga, was born on 13 Feb 1948 in Lackawana, Erie Co., N. Y.. Another name for Eleanor is Ellie. Noted events in her life were: She worked as a School Teacher. Eleanor married Edmund James Harvey. Ed and Ellie Harvey (2012) 6. Lindsey Bolling Hagen,1 son of Paul Derald Hagen and Inez Wilson Daughtrey, was born on 21 May 1948 in Retreat for the Sick Hospital, Richmond, VA. Another name for Lindsey is Bo. General Notes: Called Bo as an adult. Mom (Inez) said that she named him for her grandfather Bolden Riddick Doughtie but did not know how to spell Bolden: "Bolling is a fine Virginia name". Aunt Ethel said "Your momma doesn't make mistakes like that". I (Bo) think she combined her grandfather's name with Edith Bolling Wilson, Woodrow's wife. After all, Inez's middle name was Wilson. It is interesting that the 1880 VA Census lists Bolden as Bolling R. Doughtie. Much of the Daughtrey genealogy was preserved by Emily Christine Daughtrey in the early 1900s, compiled and added to by Ethel Daughtrey Ellis and Inez Daughtrey Hagen during the mid 1900s. Allie Beale Bo Hagen Daughtrey, daughter of Joshua Taylor Daughtrey and Allie Bertie Beale, Lindsey Bolling Hagen of Salem, VA (1993) worked with Emily and wrote many records of the family history. She was with her grandfather, Eli Daughtrey, to write down his stories of his service during the Civil War. I (Bo Hagen) will continue to research and document the Daughtreys and Hagens (Adkins and Garretts as well) and publish all findings for the families of our ancestors in a humble effort to honor them, especially my mother, Inez Wilson Daughtrey Hagen, and Aunt, Ethel Cornelia Daughtrey Ellis. 5

Bolling Hagen" Subject: Re: Familienforschung Hagen; Ihre Anfrage vom ; Tgb.Nr. II/452/08/Kli Date: 3/19/2008 Sehr geehrter Herr Klingelhöfer I want to thank you so very much for the response to my inquiry regarding Erich Karl von Hagen und Johann Wilhelm von Hagen. I have wanted to write for some time with the intent of doing so in German but unfortunately my efforts are not too good. I have had a difficult time with the translation but thanks to igoogle I have a reasonable understanding. I feel that if I used igoogle to turn my English into German you might not understand anything I write so here's hoping you understand my thanks and appreciation. I have checked out the Johannes Schwalm Historical Association and there is much there that I can look into. There is an old family story told to me by my Great Aunt Mary some 40 years ago that "our family name was O'Hagen or Von Hagen or something like that". I have traced my ancestry to Lancaster Co., PA to the time of the American Revolution but have reached a dead end. I have done YDNA testing and it appears that I have common ancestors with known individuals living in Hesse about 250 to 300 years ago although none with the surname Hagen. Then I came across the von Hagen names at Hessisches Staatsarchiv Marburg. In your letter you write: Der jüngere der beiden, vermutlich Erich Karl von Hagen, wurde am bei Clouchester" (?) 6

11 schwer verwundet. Basically igoogle translates this as: The younger of the two, probably Erich Karl von Hagen, was seriously wounded on at "Cloutier Chester" I was wondering about the Clouchester" (?)... I can imagine that you are reading from a hand written document and there is no good period nor current translation because I have no idea what "Cloutier Chester" means. I friend thinks it is Gloucester... which is an area in Virginia as well as a place in Massachusetts... however... I was thinking it might be the County of Chester... which would be in Pennsylvania exactly where my Hagen ancestors were living 200+ years ago. I do thank you so very much. If you can enlighten me on Clouchester" I would certainly appreciate the information.

Another name for Paul was Derald Revere Hagen. General Notes: To paraphrase a family story: Paul Hagen's birth name was Derald Revere Hagen but his mother called him Paul (son Derald indicates it was his grandmother who called him Paul). He found out about the "official" name when he applied for a birth certificate for a Boy Scout trip to Canada. He had his name legally changed to Paul Derald Hagen in Well, finally (February 2006) the original birth certificate for Paul Hagen has been uncovered. It turns out that you must request a "pre-amended" document. This type of request was only discovered Paul Derald Hagen after a phone conversation with the Vitals Records for Pennsylvania This is the picture taken at the time of his engagement to Inez. Paul and Inez resulted in being transferred to the "right person". This brings an married 1939 at her mother's home in Bensley Village in Chesterfield Co., VA. interesting question of how is one to know of the existance of a "pre(1938) amended" document? However, the end result records (file number PA Dept of Health) the May 19, 1915 birth of Derald Revere Hagen in Cumberland Co., PA to Alvah C. Hagen, age 20, born in Philadelphia, and Alta Grace 12

17 Kyle (sic), age 19, born in Mechanicsburg. It was filed on June 11, Apparently someone did not know the correct spelling of Alta's last name... was it intentional? (Whatever the case, her headstone at Sunset Memorial Park in Chester, VA has her maiden name as Kyle.) The birth certificate states "This is a copy of the record prior to the amendment of " See general notes on Paul's father, Alvah, under WWI Draft Registration that records Paul living with his parents and brother, Alvah Jr., in June of 1917, at 11 1/2 West Clay Street in Richmond, VA.

Inez married Paul Hagen in 1939 at her mother's home in Bensley Village in Chesterfield Co., VA. (1939) All of us are seeking happiness; although, some of us are not quite sure where to go or what to do to find it. And so, we set out in the pursuit of happiness. Thomas Jefferson, in his Declaration of Independence, guaranteed to all of us the right to "the pursuit of happiness", along with many other rights. But Thomas Jefferson may have unwittingly given many of us the wrong idea. He did not mean if we are not happy at point A, where we are now, we should go along over to point B, or C, or X, Y, or Z in the pursuit of happiness. Mr. Jefferson didn't really mean for us to actually pursue or chase after happiness. He thought we were all smart enough to know that true happiness must be generated from WITHIN ourselves from the love and joy God planted in our hearts and souls when we were born. We should "stay put" in our pursuit; but pursue and create our own happiness within our own hearts and souls. There are many ways to create one's own happiness but one of the best is by sharing, and caring, and lending a helping hand to those who are in need. When we share and give of ourselves to family and friends our happiness will grow and grow. It is like putting money in a savings account in the bank. It will grow and multiply with the interest earned. When being interviewed by Merv Griffin on television, in answer to Merv's question, "Does money always or usually assure one of happiness?" Mr. and Mrs. Hunt, millionaires from Texas, replied, "No indeed; money, lots of times, can cause much unhappiness. The best recipe for happiness is: 1. Have something to do; 2. Something to hope for, to look forward to, and 3. Someone TO LOVE! To quote Nathaniel Hawthorne (American author whose literature we all studied in school), "HAPPINESS IS A BUTTERFLY, WHICH WHEN PURSUED, IS ALWAYS JUST BEYOND YOUR GRASP, BUT WHICH, IF YOU WILL SIT DOWN QUIETLY, WILL ALIGHT UPON Y0U." 14

19 Prayer: Thank you God for each new day and help us to find joy in living as we share our blessings and give to others; and as we go to bed each night help us to remember that there is a great, big beautiful tomorrow waiting for us at the end of every day!

While at Tech, Buck made an oak desk for mom and gave her a minature Tech [V. P. I.] ring during his junior year as an engagement committment. A family story is that Paul Hagen had a car and would give Inez a ride to pick up Buck at the train station in downtown Richmond when he came to visit Inez. And... he who has the car gets the girl! Mom retired from Secretary to the Dean of English at Virginia Commonwealth University in Her last day of work was May 15, 1978 as documented by a photograph of her April retirement celebration on which she wrote.

Hagen SSN: Last Residence: Salem, Salem, Virginia, United States of America Born: 29 Sep 1914 Died: 21 Apr 2001 State (Year) SSN issued: Virginia (Before 1951) Mom did die in Salem rather than where she lived most of her life, Richmond, VA. She had bladder cancer as well as a broken hip, for the second time, and she was unable to stay in assisted living. Her son, Bo, brought her to where his family lived (Salem, VA) after she was unable to continue in her assisted living facility in Richmond. Research Notes: The birth certificate for Inez Wilson Daughtrey records her Daughtrey heritage to be "French, Indian, and English". The English is obvious but the French and Indian is a puzzle. According to name origins from ancestry.com, Daughtry / Daughtrey has its origins from a place reference for the 15

20 Normans (who invaded England): Hauterive in Orne, France. "Hauterive" in France apparently became "Daughtrey" in England.

Many of those years he lived at 706 Main Street with his wife Margarett Payne Hughes (Maggie-Dec 1871) and son Samual Edwin Hughes Jr. not far from the Adkins Family home. Ben was affectionately known in his family as Uncle "oogah", so called as he used to make a sound like an old car horn as a child. Family and friends shortened that to "Ooge" which followed him his entire life. Adkins Later in life, Ben reflected with his son-in-law, Bo Hagen, the use of nick Senior year at Ben Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Blacksburg, VA (Cir 1936) names... when Bo "affectionately" referred to his 1st born baby boy as "Weazle", Ben calmly and unassumingly noted that "you might should picture that affectionate name you use for your son as what that name will sound like for a 28 year old man... and proceed". "Weazle" was never spoken again. Ben was always kind and had a great sense of humor with unassuming wisdom in his words. Honesty, Loyalty, and Determination was a way of life not only for his family and friends, but in his employment as well. He worked for Westinghouse for 42 years and was such a dedicated employee that he would never buy a GE product and advised that as well. See general notes on his father, William T. Adkins, for 1920 and 1930 census facts. The 1935 Bugle (VPI Yearbook) records the following about B. H.

This census lists his arrival in The United States in 1909, Naturalization in 1915, and employment as a Switchman for the BRT [Rapid Transit?]. Mary is listed as arriving in 1910 and Naturalized in The 1925 New York State Census for New York Co., New York, Election District 37, Assembly District 13, page 17, dated June 1, 1925 records Edmond (37 - Ireland) and Mary (37 - Ireland) Harvey with their children James Harvey (10 - NY), Edmond (7 - NY), and Rose (3 - NY) living at 1504 Amsterdam Avenue.

Ellis Island records indicates the arrival of Edmund F. Harvey in New York, New York on April 26, 1909 at the age of 22, single, aboard the S.S. Caledonia leaving Londondary on April 17, Edmund Harvey is listed as Edward Harvey on the emigration ship's manifest where he lists his nearest relative as Edmund Harvey of Glenaraff (Glenariff), Antrim, Ireland. The manifest indicates that "Edward" is 19

24 coming to join his sister, Mary Harvey, who paid his passage and is living at 220 West 129th Street in New York. He is listed as 5' 7", fair complexion, fair hair, and blue eyes. It is of interest that Mary Harvey (28) can be found in the 1910 Federal Census, New York, New York, 12-Ward Manhattan, District 545, page 230A as a servant in the household of William and Lucy Ray at 220 West 129th Street. Also in the household as a servant is Alice Harvey (30). Alice and Mary are probably sisters, both born in Ireland. Ellis Island records also have Edmund Harvey with his arrival in New York. This Edmund marries a Rose and has children as indicated below in census records. His WWI Draft Registration records his date of birth as December 22, His residence is 958 West 49th Street in New York.

There is a birth record for an Edmund Harvey [probably our Edmund's cousin] Registration District: Ballycastle Event Type: BIRTHS Registration Quarter and Year: Jan - Mar 1884 Census records indicate that Edmund arrived in New York in 1909 and petitioned for naturalization in The 1910 Federal Census for New York City, 22 Ward, Manhattan Boro, District 1344 records an Edmund Harvey, employed as a laborer on a railroad, boarder, 23 years old arriving in New York in 1909 and living at 458 West 49th Street. It is of interest that another Edmund Harvey, 24, and arriving in New York in 1906 lives at the same residence. That census taken on April 23, 1910 records the following household: James O'Conner (35-head of household), Mary O'Connor (31-wife), Thomas (1 8/12-son), Edmund Harvey (24 - brother-in-law), Edmund Harvey (22 - cousin). James and Mary have been married 2 1/2 years. All adults were born in Ireland and immigrated in 1903, 1906, 1906, and 1909 respectively. Ellis Island Immigration records information on the ship Caledonia as follows: Port of departure: Londonderry, Ulster, Ireland, UK Caledonia: Built by D. & W. Henderson & Company, Glasgow, Scotland, ,223 gross tons; 500 (bp) feet long; 58 feet wide. Steam triple expansion engines, twin screw.

Used as a British troopship Torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine off Malta in Below is a letter to Ed Harvey of Blacksburg, VA Jan. 17, 2004 Ed, The last two pages in this letter are some documented facts from census and Ellis Island records concerning your great grand father, Edmund Joseph Harvey. Mary Lou told me you were very interested so I did some research and after interpreting those facts I have made the following conclusions beyond what we already have discussed: 1) At his arrival in New York on April 26, 1909, Edmund Jospeh Harvey had a sister living in New York by the name of Mary Harvey. She paid for his passage. She was living at 220 West 129th Street in Manhattan (from Ellis Island Records). Edmund was 5' 7" with fair complexion, fair hair, and blue eyes. He lists his nearest relative as Edmund Harvey from Glenaraff [Glenariff], Antrim, Ireland. This is probably his father. 2) Edmund's sister, Mary Harvey, has a sister, Alice. They are living as servants at 220 West 129th Street (from 1910 census records). It appears to me that they are sisters because they are both from Antrim. They are both born around 1880 and Ellis Island Records list Alice Harvey as first arriving in New York in 1900 with intent to live in Chicago. Alice Harvey arrives in New York once again in This appears to be the same person in that she arrives with Mary Harvey and they list a 20

25 former residence as Chicago. Why Chicago is another story the point is we seem to have siblings Alice (born ca 1880), Mary (born ca 1882), and Edmund (born ca 1887) whose father is Edmund and lived in Glenariff, Antrim, Ireland. 3) Your Edmund had a cousin, Edmund Harvey (born ca. 1885), that arrived in New York in He had a sister, Mary (born ca 1879), who followed her brother to America in 1907 and married James O'Connor. This Edmund and Mary Harvey are from Ballemella, Antrim, Ireland and their father is Pat Harvey. The "Ballemella" is a guess from the handwriting on the Ellis Island Records, but when I check the map of Antrim I find several Bally??? somethings around the village (town) of Glenariff. It is quite possible that your Edmund's father was Edmund Harvey and had an Uncle or brother named Patrick Harvey. To find out more I think you must use the above information to search Irish records that I have been unable to find. I have found several web sites that claim to have access to local government and church records in Antrim, Ireland. I think the first thing to do would be to get copies of the marriage and death certificates for your great grand father, Edmund Harvey. Check out < for how this is done. Notice New York City records are different than New York State Records. My guess is he was married in New York City. You said that you need to find out about when and where he died. The only Edmund/Edmond/Edward Harvey I have found who was born ca 1888, died in 1967 in New Jersey. I am sure he is not the right one. For marriage records for New York City ( ) contact Municipal Archives, 31 Chambers Street, Room 103, New York, N.Y (212) I have attached a PDF form that you can fill out and send via mail and have included some instructions on the next page of this letter. Edmund and Mary Harvey appear to have been married about 1913 in Manhattan. You may want to add $2 to the search for an additional year. I am not sure about the "Borough".. my guess is Manhattan is that a "Borough"? I might suggest that you get a copy of the marriage certificate for "cousin" Edmund Harvey while you are at it. He was married about 1918 probably in Manhattan as well. That might give you additional clues to the Harvey family of Antrim, Ireland. Check out < and < for New York Records.

The 1900 Federal Census (New York, Sullivan Co., Cochecton, ED 83 sheet 2B) records Peter Abplanalp born in Switzerland in 1838 and Sarah A. born in 1838 in England and married 37 years. These are possible relatives of Elizabeth, whose mother has a brother, Andreas (Andrew) Rohrbach, living in Sullivan Co., N.Y. The 1880 Federal Census, New York, Sullivan Co., Cochecton, ED 89, records Peter and Sarah Applanalph on page 17 and Edward Scott on page 28. Peter is listed as a blacksmith in both census. The 1870 census records this same family in the same location. Elizabeth married Thomas Francis Scott about Charles Chorazak was born about 1882 in Poland and died after 1940 in Lackawanna, Erie Co., New York. General Notes: The 1915 New York State Census for Lackawanna Ward 2, Erie Co., New York, Election District 1, Assembly District 2, page 46, dated June 1, 1915 records Charles Chorazak (33 - Austria Pole) and his wife Louise (29 - Austria - Pole) and children Thaddeus (5 - NY) and Mary (76/189) living at 504 Center Street.

At the same address is Joseph Chorazak (28 - Austrian - Pole) with his wife Caroline (20 - Austrian - Pole) and daughter Josephine (1 - NY). They have been in this country for 3 years. The 1920 Federal Census for Lackawanna Ward 2, Erie Co., New York, District 308, page 216B records Carl (37 - Poland) and Louise (33 - Poland) Hronzek (sic) [Chorazak] with children Thadeus (10), Mary (5), Adam (3), and Anthony (1) renting at 483 Center Street. Carl is a laborer in a Steel Mill.

Charles is employed as a Glass Maker and reports being in this country 17 years as does Louise. They both indicate that they became citizens on April 10, 1922 by order of the Supreme Court. On page 11 of the same census living at 100 Cook Street is Joseph Horazak (37 - Poland) with his wife Caroline (30 - Poland) and children Josephine (11 - US), Gennie (9 - NY), Frank (8), Anthonina (6 - NY), and Louisa (4 - NY).

32 (43 - Poland) Chorazak with children Teddy (20), Mary (15), Adam (13), Anthony (11), Peggy (9), Wanda (7), and Chester (5). The 1940 Federal Census for Lackawanna, Erie Co., New York, District , page 1765A,[image 15 of 35 at dated April 10, 1940 records Carl (59 - Austria) and Louise (54 - Austria) Chorazak and children Adam (23 - NY), Anthony (21 - NY), Pearl (19 - NY), Wanda (17 - NY), and Chester (15 - NY) living at 246 Center Street... the same building as their married son, Theodore, and married daughter, Mary Ciesla. Carl is working as a Laborer in a Steel Mill and earned $1,300 in the last 52 weeks. He has had 6 years of schooling while Louise has had 7 years of schooling. As of Sept. 2003, the closest immigration record I can find to Charles Chorazak is for Karol Chorazak from Krzemicanna. His ethnicity is listed as Austrian/Polish. The Ellis Island Records indicate he came into New York on February 27, 1906 at the age of 26 on the ship Finland leaving Antwerp, Belgium. However, there is another candidate: Karol Chorazak, his ethnicity is listed as Austrian/Polish and his residence as Szdziwa, Galicia. The Ellis Island Records indicate he came into New York on May 12, 1906 at the age of 22 on the ship Rhein leaving Bremen. He is traveling with his 24 year old brother, Jozef, and going to be with his brother Stanislas Chorazak. It appears that they are heading to La Porte, Indiana so this is probably not the correct Chorazak. Charles married Louise about 1908 in New York, New York. Children from this marriage were: 10 Theodore Andrew Chorazak i Marja W. "Mary" Chorazak was born on 22 Mar 1915 in Lackawanna, Erie Co., New York, died on 2 Mar 2005 in Lackawanna, Erie Co., New York at age 89, and was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Lackawana, Erie Co., N.

General Notes: In the 1930 Federal Census, Louise Chorazak is listed as age 43 having emigrated from Poland in Louise married Charles Chorazak about 1908 in New York, New York. 22. Leonard Miazga was born circa 1881 in Frampol, Lublin, Russia [Poland] and died circa 1915 at age 34. General Notes: As of Sept. 2003, the closest immigration record I can find to Herman Miazga is for Heronim Miazga from Frampol, Russia. His ethnicity is listed as Russian and his race as Polish. He came into New York on March 1, 1912 at the age of 17 on the ship Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm leaving Bremen, Germany. The manifest records his nearest relative as what looks to be his mother Paulina or perhaps Canlina Miazga in Frampol, Lublin, Russia (now Poland - as of 2004). He lists his destination as Buffalo, N.Y. to be with his brother, Leonard Miazga. Also on the ship's manifest are two women that appear to be his sisters: Joanna and Weronika Miazga of Frampol, both listed as 24 years old. They list their father as what appears to be Andrzy Miazga of Frampol. Note: Frampol in the Provence of Lubelskie, formerly called Zamos'c' 28

33 New York Passenger Lists, dated July 3, 1906 record Leonard Miazga aboard the ship S.S. Kroonland leaving Antwerp June 23 and coming into New York. He is 25 years old from Frampol, Russia and is to visit his brother, Konstanty Miazga in Oil City, PA. His nationality is listed as Russian and his race as Polish. Interestingly, this same database records Leonard Miazga entering New York on March 2, 1906 aboard the SS. Pennsylvania after leaving Hamburg, Germany on February 13. He is 30 years old from Frampol, Russia and is to visit his brother, Konstanty Miazga in Oil City, PA. His nationality is listed as Russian and his race as Polish. His calling or occupation appears to be "Butcher" and he can read and write. His passage was paid for by his father. The 1910 Federal Census for New York, Erie Co., 1-Wd Lackawanna, District 279, page 56A, dated May 9, 1910 records Leonard Miazga (29 - Russian / speaks Polish) living with his brother, Konstanty Miazga (21 - Russian / speaks Polish), and his wife of 1 year, Iniela (19). Also in the household are a brother, Joseph Miazga (19) and an Uncle, Andrew Miazga (40). This is probably Herman's family. Dates of immigration for this family are: Leonard (1906), Konskanty (1900), Joseph (1909), Andrew (1908). They all work at the Steel Plant. A possible listing for the Miazga family from the 1915 New York Sate Census: Buffalo, Ward 21, Erie County records Leon Mizwa (29) and his wife Jadwiga (27) and children Wallie (3) and Leon (6/12). Also in the household is a brother, Jacob Wizwa (31) living at 96 Howell Street. Nearby are Blazie Mizwa (28) and his wife Francis (22) also at 96 Howell Street. All adults are listed as born in Austria. However, this is NOT our family becasue the 1920 Federal Census for Buffaloo, NY records Leonard (35) and Jadwiga (31) Miczwa with children Walter (7) and Leon (5) as well as brother Jacob Miczwa (38) living at 96 Howell Street. Leonard married Caroline circa 1911 in Lackawana, Erie Co., N. Y. Children from this marriage were: 11 Wanda Miazga i Leo(nard) Miazga was born on 18 Apr 1914 and died in Aug 1986 in Buffalo, Erie Co., N.Y. at age Caroline was born about 1891 in Poland and died after 1940 in Lackawanna, Erie Co., N. Y.. General Notes: In the 1930 Federal Census, Caroline Mazja (Miazga) is listed as 39 having emigrated from Poland in see general notes on her husband, Herman Mizaga. The 1940 Federal Census for Lackawanna, Erie Co., New York, District , page 1740A, [image 27 of 34 at dated April 12, 1940 records Herman (46 - Poland) and Caroline (48 Poland) Miazga with children Edward (21), Steffie (20 - NY), Frank (18 - NY), and Joseph (5 - NY) living at 22 Edgewood Place. Herman is a Locomotive Engineer at a Steel Mill earning $0 in the last year and did not work at all but is currently seeking work. Edward is a Laborer in Sewer Construction earning $189 while working 15 weeks, Steffie is a Stenographer at a Lawyer's Office earning $350 working all 52 weeks last year, while Frank is a Fireguard for a Fireman - Watchman earning $180 while working 26 weeks during the last year. Herman has has 3 years of grade school and Caroline just 2 years. Edward had 3 years of high school, Steffie 4 years of high school, and Frank just 1 year of high school. Jospeh has completed 7 years of grade school. In a more detailed listing at the bottom of the form, Carolina indicates that both she and her parents were born in Poland and that she has had 6 children and was first married at age 18 years. There is a Carolina Kuftiak, F, 22y, Single, ethnicity Austrian/Polish, from Skalat, Galicia on board the Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm with Heronim Miazga on the Feb 29, 1912 arrival at Ellis Island. She is coming to see her brother Joseph Kuftiak in New York City. This is a good candidate for Carolina Miazga. Joseph Kuftiak can be found in the WWI Draft Registration records as born in Poland on March 2, 1882 and married to Julia Kuftiak living at 318 East 59th Street in New York City. Joseph is a window washer. 29

Alvah Charles Hagen Sr.,4 son of Edwin Walter Hagen II and Mary Elizabeth (Maime) Rannels (Reynolds), was born on 16 Jun 1895 in Philadelphia, PA., died on 10 Feb 1968 in Highland Springs, VA. at age 72, and was buried in Sunset Memorial Park, Chester, VA. E184. General Notes: According to family stories, Alvah, Alta, and Paul were living with his parents and siblings in Mechanicisburg, Pa. when first married. They then went to Detroit around 1917, the time period when his father moved to Richmond, Virginia. While there is no documented evidence at this time of a move to Detroit, the fact is that Alvah, Alta, Paul, and Alvah Jr. are living in Richmond, Va. by 1920, and are renting a place at 3220 Main Street and according to Alvah's WWI Draft Registration, the family is living in Richmond, Va on June 5, 1917 at 11 1/2 West Clay Street. Then too, the 1920 census records Alvah Jr. as born in Virginia in May Regardless, they moved to Alvah at the Rappahanock River Winston-Salem, NC around 1924 where Alvah ran a very successful Alvah Charles Hagen enjoyed his place at the river. (Jul 1962) accounting/printing machines business. The 1930 Federal Census records Alvah, Alta, Paul, and Margarett living in Middle Fork Township, Forsyth Co., N.C. According to census records of April 1930 the family was renting at the 30

35 City View Development on N.C. Route 60 with high school teacher George V. Martin a border. After losing everything in the "Crash of 29" and remaining for a while in Winston-Salem, by 1934 the family moved back to Richmond, VA. They lived in a little house in Bensley Village near Alvah's parents and his Uncle Charle's family. Alta did not want to come back to Richmond but did so because of job opportunities in Richmond where Alvah took a job as a multigraph operator at State Planters Bank. This is where youngest daughter, Betty, was born. Alta died in 1943 in the hospital from a brain anuryism suffered at her kitchen table. Alvah then married divorcee Rebecca (Beckie) Heath who, according to family stories, thought Alvah had insurance money from Alta's death. Beckie doesn't like nor want Alvah's children, Evelyn & Betty, to live with them (Peggy is married to Wilton Mann who was in WWII). According to Evelyn Hagen Mabie, Beckie brings two nephews, Tom and Harry Jr., who are in their late teens, to live with them. Tom gets a job and leaves. Harry remains and is a problem. He drinks, does not work, and appears to have an "eye" for Evelyn. One evening while walking home together, Harry makes advances to Evelyn. After Evelyn lets her daddy know the facts, Alvah "throws the bum out". Beckie continues to be demanding, disrespectful, and mean to Betty and Evelyn and the feeling is mutual. Alvah & Beckie divorce after perhaps a few years together. There was no money from insurance and the family situation was extremely strained (ca 1946). Beckie disappeared and took the car and many household items. As told by Evelyn, she watched Beckie pack, including many of her mother's things. Not wanting to lose the precious remembrances, Evelyn retrieved them from the suitcase. After Beckky left, Alvah was devastated and felt he could not properly look after his young girls... his children were boarded, first with the neighboring King family (Lottie and son Macy) of Bensley Village. The neighboring Swineford family, John (son of Howard and Grace, brother of Mary, wife of Nat Mason, lifelong friends and dentist to Garland D. and Inez D. Hagen families) and his wife, Annie Napier Swineford, intervened and got Alvah to allow the girls to live with Annie Swineford's mother (Willie and Annie Napier) at the corner of 11th and Hull Streets in Richmond (Chesterfield Co.). Alvah tried to recover from the emotional scars of the last few years but felt he could not properly look after his daughters while working full time. He tried to live with his son (Paul and Inez)... but after a few weeks, it does not work out... according to family stories Alvah has "problems". After a few months Alvah gets back on his feet, gets an apartment in the Church Hill section of Richmond, and takes his daughters back. Evelyn goes to John Marshall High School but meets neighbor CP Mabie and marries in At some point, as of yet unknown, Alvah sets up housekeeping with Edna Lee Gant (& her mother). Paul and his sons made many visits to Alvah's home in Highland Springs although Inez never went with them. Edna never made an appearance, but was always in the background during those visits. In 1966, while Alvah was ill, his sister Mary Hagen Blair, in Evelyn's words, convinced her brother to make a will to leave all his possessions to Edna. This caused a great deal of conflict and hurt to his children. According to grandson, Derald Hagen, Alvah's funeral was the most difficult he ever attended due to the hurt, "left out" feelings of Alvah's children. According to Evelyn, this was but one of many mean and spiteful things done by Mary ever since her brother hurriedly married Alta. In a search for a marriage license for Alvah and Alta, no record was found in Carlisle, Cumberland Co., Pa. nor Hagerstown, Washington Co., Maryland. The Richmond City (Va.) Directory of 1946 lists "Alvah (Rebecca) Hagen" while the 1947 directory lists Mrs. Rebecca Hagen, separate from Alvah, living at 2919 Northumberland Road. Extensive research found the marriage certificate for Alvah C. Hagan [Hagen] and Rebecca L. Heath. They were married February 17, The certificate records Rebecca's parents as James R. Heath and Orpha Sneed of Halifax Co., Va. The WWI Draft Registration Card for Alvah Charles Hagen dated June 5, 1917 lists his date of birth as June 16, 1895 in Philadelphia, PA. He is living with his wife and two children at 11 1/2 West Clay Street in Richmond, VA and is working as a Machinist at The Richmond Forging Company.

Another name for Alta was Alta Grace Kyle. General Notes: The spelling of "Kyle" for Alta Grace Kyle Hagen is used frequently in Richmond records and is actually on her headstone at Sunset Memorial Park. However, it appears that the actual spelling of the family name is Keil or at least used to be (see references to her father and sister).

According to daughter-in-law, Inez Daughtrey Hagen, Alvah and Alta were very much in love throughout their lives together. Their "hurry-up" marriage was always a point of contention to Alvah's family, particularly to Alvah's sister Mary. Alvah's sister Margaret was the only Hagen to truely accept Alta into the family. This observation appears to be confirmed by Alta's naming her first daughter Margarett (Peggy). Alta's daughter, Evelyn, gave her mother's name to three of her children: Margaret GRACE, Richard KYLE, and ALTA Jane. Evelyn carried a lifelong resentment to "those Hagens... they always thought they were better than everyone else" stated in a 2003 conversation with her nephew, Bo Hagen. After being reminded that she was a Hagen, she tempered her remarks to reflect that it was mostly her father's 34

39 sister, Mary, that fostered the family schism. Alta married Alvah Charles Hagen Sr.4 on 24 Oct 1914 in Hagerstown, Maryland. 26. Theophilus Losey Daughtrey, son of Eli Daughtrey and Julia Anna Rawls, was born on 17 Oct 1867 in Nansemond Co., VA, died on 11 Aug 1922 in Chesterfield Co., VA at age 54, and was buried in Maury Cemetery, Richmond, VA. General Notes: Theophilus Losey Daughtrey went by TL, Losey, or T Losey. His name is sometimes listed as Lozey some earlier documents. It appears as (Mrs.) Theophelus Losy on daughter LeClaire's wedding invitation. Written on an 1887 photograph of T.L. is a birthdate of Oct. 20, 1867, however, his tombstone in Maury Cemetery, Richmond, VA records October 17, When daughter Ethel Daughtrey Ellis was interviewed by Bo Hagen (ca 1989 in Bon Air, Va.), she was asked about "her father Theophilus". It took her by surprise and a few moments to realize "Oh! You mean my father. I never heard him called that! He was always called TL or Losey." Theophilus Losey Daughtrey (ca 1890) The Holland Peanut Company was incorporated in 1901 with Bolden R. Doughtie as president, T. L. Daughtrey as Vice-president, W. Carlton Doughtie as Secretary/Treasurer and Eli Daughtrey and David R. Roberts on the board of directors. Bolden was TL's father-in-law, Carlton was Bolden's son, Eli was TL's father, and David was Bolden's son-in-law, married to Lydia.

Allie was thrilled to see a picture of your grandmother because she said her Aunt Allie ALWAYS sent her a present on her birthday, when she was a child, because she was named after her. That was something she looked forward to as a child. Mom had told me years ago (when she could still remember) that your grandmother's name was Alnona, but they always called her Aunt Allie.

Others listed on this form are John Delargy, Patrick Murray, John Black, James McNeill, and Jane Laverty... all are the landholders for their homes except for Jane Laverty (owned by John Delargy) and John Black (owned by Patrick Murray). The household return form for Edmund Harvey records (as transcribed): Éadhmonn Ó hairmheadhaigh, 70, Male Maighréad Ní Airmheadaigh, 30, Female Aodh Ó hairmheadhaigh, 29, Male Phádraig Ó hairmheadhaigh, 18, Male The writing truly looks like these letters... under religion it looks like Catohrceac Most Irish surnames, in their Gaelic form, start with Ó, Mac, or occasionally de (which indicates a name of Norman origin). Ó means 'grandson of', Mac means 'son of' and de means 'of'. Surname: Harvey This ancient surname, which is one of the earliest on record, is of English and Irish origin. It is also well recorded in Scotland, although the origin is as for England. The name has two possible sources, the first being from the Breton personal name "Aeruiu" or "Haerviu", composed of the elements "haer", meaning battle, and "vy", - worthy. The 1086 Domesday has various references to followers of William the Conqueror, including Herueu de Berruarius of Suffolk, and later Heuei de Castre of Lincoln, in These were not surnames, although in fact the first surname recording as shown below was only just behind. The second source is Irish, although in fact most nameholders in Ireland do descend from English settlers, it is said that a Galway clan called originally the O'hAirmheadhaigh, did 'anglicise' their name to Harvey or Harvie. The Gaelic translates as 'the descendant of the son of Airmed'. The surname is generally recorded as Harvey, Harvie, Hervie and Hervey, and early recordings include William Hervy of Essex in 1232, Warin Harvi in the Pipe Rolls of Cambridge for the year 1273, and John Hervy, burgess of Aberdeen in The roll of famous namebearers includes William Harvey ( ), who discovered the circulation of the blood in 1616, whilst Edmond Harvey, a Parliamentarian Colonel, was one of the fifty three regicides who signed the death warrant of Charles 1st in January Beauchamp Bagenal Harvey was one of the 1798 leaders of the Irish rebellion, whilst curiously Robert Hervie of Scotland was a member of the Huntly Volunteer force, raised to combat a possible FrenchIrish invasion. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Hervi, which was dated 1190, in the 'Calendar of Abbot Samson of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk', during the reign of King Richard 1, known as "The Lionheart", The Irish name Harvey: mainly of English origin, in Ulster and County Wexford, but sometimes a shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hairmheadhaigh 'descendant of Airmheadhach', a personal name probably meaning 'esteemed'. It seems to be a derivative of Airmheadh, the name borne by a mythological physician. Research Notes: From familysearch.org: Edmund Harvey Registration District: Larne 50

General Notes: The Edward Scott family is listed in the 1880 Federal Census of Cochecton, Sullivan Co., New York. The listing includes mother-in-law Bridget Kaden, widow, also born in Ireland. In the 1860 Federal Census of Jeffersonville Post Office, Cochecton, New York, page 461, recorded July 14, 1860, Edward is single, living in a boarding house, and working in a tannery.

General Notes: In a letter in Oct 1999, Mary Lou(ise) Hagen Taylor indicates that Edwin Walter Hagen's father was actually Edwin Waters Hagen. Edwin Waters II [Walter] was a Junior but changed his name to Walter after a family feud sometime in the 1920's. Actually, Edwin's marriage license of 1893 records "Walter". I (Bo Hagen) remember Uncle Lindsey telling me that the family had a big argument over some family member being accused of stealing a cow. I think it was Edwin II's brother Charles. Papa Edwin (Waters) took Charles side and the family had a huge riff that never healed. The name Waters is recorded in the Edwin Walter Hagen II gets married. family bible, the register at Riverside Cemetery, and on his death (1893) certificate. I believe it is a mistake where one document was used to confirm another. The "Waters" is a minor variation of "Walter" and is either a transcription error or used to emphasize the family disagreement and feud. For now I will record the middle name of Walter as correct and it should be noted that the name on his headstone at Riverside Cemetery is Edwin Walter Hagen because I placed the marker at the otherwise unmarked grave. (see notes on Edwin's father's maternal grandmother, Mary Ann Watters, to revise this conclusion) The two paragraphs below came from descriptions of Edwin and Mary Hagen written by grand daughter Mary Louise Hagen : Edwin and Mary Reynolds moved to Elmont near Ashland (Richmond), VA. from Mechanicsburg (Cumberland Co.) PA about They then moved to the Drewry's Bluff area in Chesterfield adjacent to the Bellwood Farm. Bellwood Farm was purchased by the U.S. Army in 1941 and became 55

60 known as Bellwood Depot. The Hagen house was a large two story with a big front porch. Son Lindsey made a tennis court out front and developed a life long love of the game. The yard supported huge old shade and Blue Spruce trees. Son Charles Pearson Hagen built and maintained a large fish pond in the front. The house was sold to the county school board in about 1950 and an elementary school now occupies the site [Bensley Elementary at 6600 Strathmore Road]. In later years Edwin lived with daughter Helen and her husband, Lewis Wittaker at 3728 Brookside Avenue in Richmond. Reedy Creek runs along the back of the yard toward Forest Hill Park. [note: The 1946 Richmond City Directory lists Edwin living at 3728 Brookside Road.] He would catch the bus and go visit his son, Charles, at the Methodist Children's Home on West Broad Street. He would get off the bus and walk across the street making traffic stop for him. In his last years, senility became so bad that he had to move to a nursing home. Edwin met his wife Mary Elizabeth Rannels at the age of ten at church/sunday school (see notes on Mary Elizabeth Rannels and notes on his father for 1880 census facts). According to Lancaster City Directories: Edwin W. Hagen Jr and family were living at 442 West Frederick Street. Edwin is a mach. [machinist] Edwin is not listed in the 1901 Directory, however, the Lancaster City Directory lists Edwin W. Hagen, foreman John W Eshelman, res 213 E Ross as well as Edwin W Hagen jr, mach, h 213 E Ross. The 1900 Federal Census for Lancaster City, PA (ED# 56, page 80B) dated June 2, 1900 records Henry (sic) [Edwin] (27 - Dec 1872) and Mary (27 - Feb 1873) Hagen with children Alva (6-June 1895), Mary (3 - Mar 1897), Margaret (1 - Aug 1898), and no name [Charles] (1/12 - Apr 1900) living at 213 East Ross Street. Edwin has been married to Mary for 6 years and his occupation is listed as a Machinist. Mary has had 4 children. The 1910 Federal Census for Mechanicsburg, Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, Ward 3, ED# 24, page 27A/B, dated April 19, 1910 records Edwin W. (37 - PA/PA/PA) and Mary E.

Many others are working for "Fifth Wheel" in the catagory classification "General nature of the industry... cotton mill, dry goods store, farm, etc". Edwin has been married to Mary for 17 years and they have had 7 children all of whom are still living. The WWI Draft Registration Card for Edwin Walter Hagen dated September 12, 1918 lists his date of birth as December 1, He is living with his wife, Mary E. Hagen in Drewery's Bluff, VA.and is working in Mechanical Dentistry at 305 Professional Building in Richmond, VA. His physical description is medium height and build with hazel eyes and dark brown hair. The 1920 Federal Census, Virginia, Chesterfield Co., Bermuda, ED#5, page 64B records Edwin W.

Edwin's occupation is listed as Dentist in a Dental Laboratory [family stories report making false teeth in a dental lab as his profession]. The 1930 Federal Census, Virginia, Chesterfield Co., Bermuda, District 1, page 13B/14A records Edwin W. (57-PA) and Mary E. (57-PA) Hagen with children Charles P.

Mary Elizabeth (Maime) Rannels (Reynolds), daughter of Sylvester Rannels (Reynolds) and Emma Becher, was born on 2 Feb 1873 in Lancaster City, PA., died on 26 Sep 1944 in Richmond, VA at age 71, and was buried on 28 Sep 1944 in Section 26, Lot 230, Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA:Headstone reads Mary Elizabeth Reynolds Hagen. General Notes: Mary Lou Hagen Taylor shared thoughts on her grand mother: "Grandma Mary Hagen loved children. During the 1930s and early 1940s the family (children and grandchildren) gathered at the home place in Chesterfield every Sunday. She served brown sugar and butter sandwiches. They moved to (3728) Brookside Ave. in Richmond, Va. near Forest (Hill) Park. The back yard sloped down to a creek where the grandchildren used to play. (Mary Lou Hagen Taylor remembers Jimmy and Larry Mooring playing with Ann and Mary Lou) Grandma Mary's hair was so long she could sit on it. She loved to sit at the vanity and brush it. She died in her home in 1944 and the funeral was held there." Mary Elizabeth Rannels Portrait for her marriage to Edwin W. Hagen. (1893) A biography from the memorial record at the funeral: "Born Feb. 6, 1873, Lancaster, Pa. Attended the Public School until her sixteenth year. Attended the Church and Sunday School of the Olivet Baptist Church, Pastor Michael Frayser. At this church and Sunday School, at the tender age of ten years, she formed a lasting friendship which culminated in her being united in marriage Sept. 20, 1893 to the boy, grown to manhood, her childhood sweetheart (Edwin Walter Hagen). A happy union that gave us home and contentment...the family of eight children: four sons and four daughters. All were tenderly cared for, and by her influence, reared to manhood and womanhood with unbounded love for parents and home." (from her Funeral program) Her tombstone in Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery shows her maiden name as Reynolds, however, her family name is recorded as Rannels in the Lancaster Co., Pa. census records from Census records show her father as Sylvester Rannels and Grand Father as Levi Rannels. Her father's Civil War military records are listed in the notes for Sylvester Rannels. Mary married Edwin Walter Hagen II 2 on 20 Sep 1893 in Philadelphia David A. Keil,11 son of Johann Adam Keil and Anna (Annie) Elizabeth Albrecht (Albright), was born on 23 Aug 1855 in Pennsylvania,12 died on 8 Feb 1921 in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland Co., PA. at age 65, and was buried on 11 Feb 1921 in Mechanicsburg Cemetery, Mechanicsburg, PA. (Plot K-66). The cause of his death was Organic Heart Disease / Eccentric Hypertrophy. General Notes: Our Keil family name is listed in various sources as Kyle, Kile, Keil as well as many other ways. David, Missouri, and Sarah are all listed as Keil on death certificates as well as their Mechanicsburg Cemetery headstones. Sometime around WWI, members of the family began spelling their name "Kile". This may have been a reaction to German sentiments from WWI. Around 1942, E. Frederick Kile, born 1928, grandson of David and Missouri, found his birth certificate was Keil even though he had always known himself as Kile. Fred subsequently had his name legally changed to Kile. See general notes on his father, Johann Adam Keil, for 1870 census facts. The 1880 Federal Census in Urbana, Champaigne Co., Ohio, Dist 31, page 436 B, dated June 17, 1880 records David (25 - PA/PA/Germany) and Missouri (20 - Ohio/PA/PA) Kyle [Keil] with their daughter Sarah A. (2 - PA) living on Russell Street in Urbana, Ohio very near 58 David A. Keil David in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania... this picture is from a collection of pictures that belonged to Evelyn Hagen Mabie. They were from her mother's family photos. This individual was speculated to be David Keil in that it was a group pictures with Missouri and Evelyn and David's daughter, Ocyola Keil Jacobs. In 2009, when the picture was shown to David and Missouri's grand daughter, Verna Graybill, she indicated that she believed it to be Ocyola Keil Jacobs' husband, Charlie Jacobs. (Cir 1918)

63 Missouri's parents, Samuel and Sarah Creamer. Interesting to note that Missouri is days away from giving birth to their son John William Keil, on June 25, David is listed as employed as a Laborer. The family will soon move back to Pennsylvania where their next child is born. Missouri's father and several siblings soon Ohio behind and move to Nebraska. 20th Century census records list the David A. Keil family home as 101 North York Street in Mechanicsburg, PA in 1900; 22 East Green Street in Mechanicsburg, PA in 1910; 44 West Allen Street in 1920; and 21 East Locust Street in Mechanicsburg, PA in The 1900 Federal Census for Mechanicsburg, Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, ED# 17, page 12B, dated June 13, 1900 records David (44 - Aug 1855 / PA/PA/PA) and Missouri (40 - March 1860 / Ohio/PA/PA) (indexed as Masouria at ancestry.com) Keil with children Sarah A.

(3 - Aug 1896 / PA). David and Missouri have been married 23 years with 7 children of which 7 are alive and are living at 101(?) North York Street. Next door is Elizabeth [Stahl] and Peirce Rice. Elizabeth is the sister of John Stahl. This neighborhood relationship is most likely how John Stahl meets and marries Sarah Keil and fathers Evelyn Stahl. The 1910 Federal Census for Mechanicsburg, Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, ED# 24, page 26A, dated April 18, 1910 records David A. (54 - PA/Germany/Germany) and Missouri (50 - Ohio/PA/PA) Kile [Keil] with children Ester V. (17 - PA) and Alta G. (13 - PA) and daughter Sarah A. Stahl (32 - PA) and granddaughter Evlin M.

Goudy, was born on 17 Mar 1860 in Enon (Mad River) Township, Clark Co., Ohio, died on 26 Oct 1936 in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland Co., PA. at age 76, and was buried on 28 Oct 1936 in Mechanicsburg Cemetery, Mechanicsburg, PA. (Plot K-66). The cause of her death was Chronic Myocarditis / Nephritis. General Notes: The death certificate for Missouri records her parents as Samuel Cramer and Sarah Gowdy both born in York Co., Pa. Census records repeatedly record family members as Creamer or Cremer and Goudy. Following parents and siblings through many years comfirm the most likely correct spellings to be Creamer and Goudy. Samuels' Civil War records use Creamer most frequently and indicate that he was born in Cumberland Co., PA. Additional research on the family indicates that in the early 1800s the Creamer family lived in north western part of York Co. near Lower Allen Cumberland Co. and then moved just inside Cumberland Co. in Lower Allen ca 1824 before moving to the Clark Co./Champaign Co., Ohio region ca See general notes on her husband, David Keil, for 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, & 1930 census facts.

Missouri married David A. Keil11 about Eli Daughtrey,15 son of Joshua Daughtrey and Priscilla (Prissy) Holland, was born on 26 Mar 1838 in Isle of Wight Co., VA, died on 22 Sep 1930 in Nansemond Co., VA at age 92, and was buried in Family Plot across from Eli's home in Nansemond Co, VA. General Notes: In the words of his daughter, Emily Christine: "his name was spelt E-l-i instead of E-l-e-y which he was always called...". [pronounced "E" "lee"] The above is from a letter to Inez Daughtrey Hagen in 1964 referencing Eli's name being "misspelled on the headstone provided for him by the UDC". Included in this letter is a picture of the family plot where Elmer had recently been buried. Eli was most probably named for someone from the Eley family. The Eley surname is abundant in the Isle of Wight/Nansemond area. Ola Daughtrey writes to Ethel Daughtrey Ellis ca 1970 that her father "Eli Daughtrey died Sept. 22, Dr. said he was just worn out, like a piece of old machinery." Eley Daughtrey A Civil War Veteran of the 41st Virginia. Husband to Julia Anna Rawls. This picture was in the Inez Daughtrey Hagen collection of family pictures. (ca 1890) In a letter written during the Civil War from Oliver Hazard Perry Holland to Dianna Cutchins, Oliver refers to his "cousin Ealy" being smitten by a girl back home during a recent leave of absence from the army. That girl was most probably Julia Ann Rawls, sister of Robert who was serving with Eli in the 41st. See notes on Oliver Hazard Perry Holland for the transcription of the letters. Eli Daughtrey enlisted in the CSA Co K 41st Va. Infantry, the South Quay Guards of William (Billy) Mahone's Brigade, in March 15, 1862 at Sewell's Point. His pension application records he entered service in the "Summer, 1861" at Smithfield, Virginia and "later joined Co. K stationed in Norfolk", Virginia. While in Norfolk, he witnessed the famous Battle of the Ironclads, CSS Virginia and USS Monitor, on March 9, In August of 1862, just before the 2nd Battle of Manassas, the 41st Virginia Infantry of the Army of Northern Virginia was in Major General James Longstreet's Corps, Major General Richard Heron Anderson's Division, Brigadier General Billy Mahone's Brigade. The first of August saw Anderson's Division remaining at Drewry's Bluff in the defense of Richmond as Lee waited to confirm the withdrawal of McClellan's troops from the Peninsular Campaign. It would not be until August 16 that Anderson's three divisions would board trains to take them to join Lee and the rest of The Army of Northern Virginia to meet their destiny at Manassas Junction. It was at that battle that his brother, Theophilus, was killed in action on August 30, A family story handed down relates how Eley and his brother Allen returned with the body for burial at their home in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. This graveyard is located on the south side of Lee's Mill Road in Isle of Wight County, approximately one-half mile from the City of Suffolk (Nansemond County) line. In April of 2004, Nita Rawls Watterson of Virginia Beach and direct decedent of Robert and Dianna Rawls, took me on a personal tour of the cemeteries, homes, and land, where the Rawls, Cutchins, and 61

66 Daughtreys lived near Holland, Va. Unfortunately, the Daughtrey Cemetery where Eley's parents are buried is all but gone. The field is plowed around the plot and the headstones are gone. There are sunken areas where the graves still lie undisturbed. I found a part of a headstone that looked fairly recent and had a date marked Nov 20, That is the date of death of Eley's neice, Lilly Daughtrey. Since she was apparently divorced, I assume that she is buried there. Others buried there include Eley's parents, Joshua and Priscilla Daughtrey and his brothers, Joseph John, and Theophilus. Eley's grave is nearby, down the road, across from his home in a field. Other graves in the plot are his wife, Julia Anna, and his son Elmer. The cemetery stands out in the field due to the large number of tress growing in a around the small, walled, grave site. See notes on his father, Joshua, for comments on the family grave yards. It is of interest that early in the war, Eley's unit, Co. K of the 41st VA Infantry, Mahone's Brigade of R. H. [Richard Heron] Anderson's Division, fought alongside Greenberry Adkins's 38th Pittsylvania Vindicators in General Lewis Addison Armistead's Brigade of R. H. Anderson's Division of Longstreet's Corps. Their great grand children, Bo Hagen and Mary Lou Adkins, are married. (Eli thought so highly of General "Billy" Mahone he named one of his twins William Emmitt Mahone Daughtrey) Eli mustered out at Appomattox, VA on April 9, Eli Daughtry received a $200 Virginia Civil War Veteran Pension, May 2, 1930 (card#16 - Library of Virginia) From the National PArk Service Web Site: 41st Infantry Regiment completed its organization in July, Men of this unit were recruited in Petersburg and Sussex, Chesterfield, Norfolk, and Nansemond counties. After serving in the Department of Norfolk, it was assigned to General Mahone's and Weisiger's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. The 41st fought with the army from Seven Pines to Cold Harbor, then was involved in the Petersburg siege south of the James River and the final campaign at Appomattox. It contained 564 effectives in June, 1862, lost 14 killed, 51 wounded, and 20 missing at Malvern Hill, and 8 killed and 34 wounded at Second Manassas. The unit reported 9 casualties in the Maryland Campaign, 5 at Fredericksburg, and 29 at Chancellorsville. Of the 276 engaged at Gettysburg, five percent were disabled. On April 9, 1865, it surrendered with 10 officers and 99 men. The field officers were Colonels John R. Chambliss, Jr. and William A. Parham, Lieutenant Colonels George Blow, Jr. and Joseph P. Minetree, and Majors William H. Etheredge and Francis W. Smith.

67 Eli Daughtrey, son of Joshua Daughtrey and Priscilla Holland, of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, was born March 26, 1838, and passed into eternal rest September 22, He was one of the few surviving members of General "Billy" Mahone's famous brigade. At the outbreak of the Civil War he first did guard duty near Smithfield, Virginia. He desired, however, to be with the company made near his home and soon joined Company K, 41st Virginia Regiment, Mahone's Brigade, then stationed at Sewell's Point, Virginia. There he remained with the troops guarding Norfolk till the evacuation of that city. While there he witnessed the famous battle between (the ironclads) the Merrimac[k] (CSS Virginia) and the Monitor. On the evacuation of Norfolk, Mahone's men were hurried to the defense of Richmond and there did their first real fighting in the Battle of Fair Oaks or Seven Pines. Then followed the Peninsular Campaign and the Seven Day Battles around Richmond. At Malvern Hill Lieutenant Haslett of Company K was killed. (William J. Haslett was promoted to full Lieutenant, 2nd Class on May 1, 1862 and died in the defense of his country June 30, 1862 at Glendale, Va.) Soon came the Battle of Second Manassas where a brother, Theophilus Daughtrey, fell mortally wounded. Just before the battle began Eli Daughtrey had been placed on special detail. He was ordered to cook rations for the company. This service kept him out of a few engagements, but his duties were severe, often having to travel all day and then prepare rations for over 100 men at night. Mahone's men did gallant service in the first invasion of Maryland. This campaign closed rather disappointingly in the bloody Battle of Sharpsburg along Antietam Creek. In the Battle of Fredericksburg, which soon followed, the brave soldiers of the South won a complete victory. The battle closed the arduous campaign of 1862 and the men found rest in camp for the winter. Early in the spring of 1863 the armies were again active. Mahone's men were at Chancellorsville near Jackson's position when a volley fired from his own lines, through mistake, mortally wounded him. The victory at Chancellorsville so elated the Arny of Northern Virginia, that a second invasion of Maryland and the North was determined. In the fierce fighting at Gettysburg Mahone's men distinguished themselves by their brave conduct and devotion to duty. On the third day of this terrible battle General Pickett's men made their famous charge. (The 41st stood in reserve, then braced for a counterattack that never came.) After the battle, Lee was able to retreat across the Potomac in orderly manner. The first week of 1864, Mahone's men were engaged in severe fighting in the Wilderness. Here forest fires and lack of water caused much suffering. Many wounded men lay in agony and horror as the flames swept towards and over them. Spotsylvania and the battles around Cold Harbor soon followed. They are among the most severe battles of the war and marked the close of the third unsuccessful campaign of the Federals to capture Richmond. The fighting around Spotsylvania was one of the bloodiest struggles of the war, lasting from the morning of the 9th till the night of the 12th of May Here Eli Daughtrey was shot in the hip and carried from the field of battle. (Eli's daughter, Ola Daughtrey, wrote and stated many times that her father was wounded in the hip at Gettysburg, not Spotsylvania as stated in this transcription. Muster roll records and Eli's pension application indicate that he was wounded at Spotsylvania but Gettysburg is never mentioned) Sent to a Richmond hospital, the wound quickly healed, but he was lame and unfit for field service. The head surgeon had him to assist in caring for the wounded. His work was well done and he soon so won the doctor's confidence that he was made superintendent of the gangrene hospital unit. He served in this work till fully recovered and then joined his command in the defense of Petersburg. Here Mahone's men rendered gallant service in the defense of the city and won honor by holding the broken line at the Crater, where they drove the enemy with great confusion and loss back to the protection of his own works. The fight against overwhelming odds could not be kept up, however brave men might be. Petersburg and Richmond were evacuated. Lee moved west in a futile effort to join forces with those of General Johnston, who commanded the western army. This movement ended in the surrender of Lee to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse April 9th

68 When Richmond was evacuated Eli Daughtrey was on the picket line in hailing distance of the Federal pickets. His first news of Lee's retreat came form the Federal picket who told him it was time for him to go as "Uncle Robert" was gone. This explained why the men on picket duty had not been relieved at the usual time. When the retreat was well under way, officers relieved these pickets and took them on a hasty march to join their commands. Just a day before the surrender Captain Hunter was killed while Company K was supporting a battery. (William H. Hunter of Nansemond Co., Va. became a Captain in Co. K, 41st Va. Infantry on July 30, He was originally enlisted at age 19 in the 16th Va. Infantry, Co. A May 10, 1861 and promoted to sergeant by May He was commissioned and transferred to the 41st in August On July 30, 1864 he was promoted to full Captain. War records indicate he was killed on April 7, 1865 at Cumberland Church, Va.) (Eli's pension application indicates that he served under "Capt. B. B. Hunter". Service records reveal Capt. Beverly B. Hunter, medical student from Suffolk, Va., was killed at Petersburg, VA on July 30, William H. Hunter, mentioned above, was Beverly's younger brother... Jonas W. Lawrence was the first Captain until he was retired on May 1, they all served under William Allen Paraham was Colonel) Eli Daughtrey served the confederacy four years, engaged in many battles, endured much hardship, and was one of the few thousand men of Lee's veterans able to bear arms till the surrender and parole at Appomattox. He was once severely wounded and suffered a slight wound when Captain Hunter was killed, as stated above. Captain Hunter had urged him to accept the rank of sergeant and get in line for promotion, but he preferred to serve in the ranks as a private. After the surrender, he - as did other men in the tattered gray - trudged the many weary miles that led to home and work in rebuilding the ruined fortress of the South. On January 10, 1867, Eli Daughtrey and Julia Anna Rawls were married. To them were born 9 children of whom the following survive: Joshua T. Daughtrey, Miss Emily Daughtrey, Elmer L. Daughtrey, and Mrs. W. J. Daughtrey (Aunt Ola) of Franklin, Virginia, and Joseph R. Daughtrey of Norfolk, Virginia. There are also 19 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and a number of nieces and nephews. He had long been a resident of Nansemond County near the old home place. For over 50 years he served his church as deacon, being always faithful to his church obligations (At the church, Eli has a window dedicated in his honor). He was a devout father, a good neighbor, a true follower of Lee and Mahone, and a man who placed honesty and steadfastness to principle first in every consideration. He has passed to deserved rest and reward. The Holland Peanut Company was incorporated 1901 with Bolden R. Doughtie as president, T. L. Daughtrey as Vice-president, W. Carlton Doughtie as Secretary/Treasurer also Eli Daughtrey and David R. Roberts on the board of directors. (T. L. is Eli's son and Bolden's son-in-law.

Anderson regarding the June - August Gettysburg Campaign: Report of Maj. Gen. Richard H. Anderson, C. S. Army, commanding division JUNE 3-AUGUST 1, The Gettysburg Campaign. O.R.-- SERIES I--VOLUME XXVII/2 [S# 44] HDQRS. ANDERSON'S DIVISION, THIRD ARMY CORPS, Orange Court-House, Va., August 7, Maj. WILLIAM H. PALMER, A. A. and I. G., and Chief of Staff, Third Army Corps. MAJOR: I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of my division, from its departure from Fredericksburg to its return to Culpeper Court-House, Va., during the months of June and July: Pursuant to instructions from Lieut. Gen. A. P. Hill, commanding the Third Army Corps, my command, composed of Wilcox's, Mahone's, Wright's, Perry's, and Posey's brigades, and Lane's battalion of artillery, moved on the afternoon of June 14 from the position which it had been occupying in line of battle near Fredericksburg for ten days previously, and followed the march of the First and Second Corps toward Culpeper Court-House. The night of the 14th, it lay near Chancellorsville. On the 15th, it moved to within 4 miles of Stevensburg, having been detained two hours at the Rapidan, clearing away obstructions from the road approaching the ford. On the 16th, it arrived at Culpeper Court-House. On the 17th, it moved to Hazel River, forded it, and encamped on its left bank; on the 18th to Flint Hill, and on the 19th to Front Royal, at which place it halted early in the day, and encamped, in obedience to the directions of the lieutenant-general commanding. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon, orders were received to resume the march, and during that night the troops and a part of the wagon train crossed the two branches of the Shenandoah, rain and darkness preventing the greater part of the wagons from crossing until the following morning. As soon as all the wagons had crossed on the morning of the 20th, the march was continued, and in the afternoon the command halted 2 miles beyond White Post. Moved on the 21st to Berryville; on the 22d to Roper's farm, on the road to Charlestown, and on the 23d to Shepherdstown. On the 24th, it crossed the Potomac, and moved to Boonsborough. On the 25th, to Hagerstown; on the 26th, 2 miles beyond Greencastle, and on the 27th, through Chambersburg to Fayetteville, at which place it halted until July 1. Soon after daylight on July 1, in accordance with the commands of the lieutenant-general, the division moved from Fayetteville in the direction of Cashtown. Arrived at the latter place early in the afternoon, and halted for further orders. Shortly Before our arrival at Cashtown, the sound of brisk cannonading near Gettysburg announced an engagement in our front. After waiting about an hour at Cashtown, orders were received from General Hill to move forward to Gettysburg. Upon approaching 65

70 Gettysburg, I was directed to occupy the position in line of battle which had just been vacated by Pender's division, and to place one brigade and a battery of artillery a mile or more on the right of the line, in a direction at a right angle with it and facing to the right. Wilcox's brigade and Captain [H. M.] Ross' battery, of Lane's battalion, were posted in the detached position, while the other brigades occupied the ground from which Pender's division had just been moved. We continued in this position until the morning of the 2d, when I received orders to take up a new line of battle on the right of Pender's division, about a mile and a half farther forward. Lane's battalion of artillery was detached from my command this morning, and did not rejoin it. In taking the new position, the Tenth Alabama Regiment Wilcox's brigade, had a sharp skirmish with a body of the enemy who had occupied a wooded hill on the extreme right of my line. The enemy were soon driven from the wood, and the line of battle was formed, with the brigades in the following order: Wilcox's, Perry's (commanded by Col. David Lang), Wright's, Posey's, and Mahone's. The enemy's line was plainly in view, about 1,200 yards in our front, extending along an opposite ridge somewhat more elevated than that which we occupied, the intervening ground being slightly undulating, inclosed by rail and plank fences, and under cultivation. Our skirmishers soon became engaged with those of the enemy, and kept up an irregular fire upon one another. Shortly after the line had been formed, I received notice that Lieutenant-General Longstreet would occupy the ground on the right; that his line would be in a direction nearly at right angles with mine; that he would assault the extreme left of the enemy and drive him toward Gettysburg, and I was at the same time ordered to put the troops of my division into action by brigades as soon as those of General Longstreet's corps had progressed so far in their assault as to be connected with my right flank. About 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the engagement between the artillery of the enemy and that of the First Army Corps commenced, and was soon followed by furious and sustained musketry; but it was not until 5.30 o'clock in the evening that McLaws' division (by which the movement of my division was to be regulated) had advanced so far as to call for the movement of my troops. The advance of Mc-Laws' division was immediately followed by the brigades of mine, in the manner directed. Never did troops go into action with greater spirit or more determined courage. The ground afforded them but little shelter, and for nearly three-quarters of a mile they were compelled to face a storm of shot and shell and bullets; but there was no hesitation nor faltering. They drove the enemy from his first line, and possessed themselves of the ridge and of much of the artillery with which it had been crowned; but the situation discovered the enemy in possession of a second line, with artillery upon both our front and flanks. From this position he poured a destructive fire of grape upon our troops. Strong re-enforcements pressed upon our right flank, which had become disconnected from McLaws' left, and the ridge was untenable. The brigades were compelled to retire. They fell back in the same succession in which they had advanced--wilcox's, Perry's, Wright's, and Posey's. They regained their positions in the line of battle. The enemy did not follow. Pickets were again thrown to the front, and the troops lay upon their arms. In Wilcox's, Perry's, and Wright's brigades the loss was very heavy. On July 3, nothing of consequence occurred along that portion of the line occupied by my division until the afternoon, when at 3.30 o'clock a great number of pieces of our artillery, massed against the enemy's center, opened upon it, and were replied to with equal force and fury. After about an hour's continuance of this conflict, the enemy's fire seemed to subside, and troops of General Longstreet's corps were advanced to the assault of the enemy's center. I received orders to hold my division in readiness to move up in support, if it should become necessary. The same success at first, and the same repulse, attended this assault as that made by my division on the preceding evening. The troops advanced gallantly under a galling and destructive storm of missiles of every description: gained the first ridge; were unable to hold it; gave way, and fell back, their support giving way at the same time. Wilcox's and Perry's brigades had been moved forward, so as to be in position to render assistance, or to take advantage of any success gained by the assaulting column, and, at what I supposed to be the proper time, I was about to move forward Wright's and Posey's Brigades, when LieutenantGeneral Longstreet directed me to stop the movement, adding that it was useless, and would only involve unnecessary loss, the assault having failed. I then caused the troops to resume their places in line, to afford a rallying point to those retiring and to oppose the enemy should he follow our retreating forces. No attempt at pursuit was made, and our troops resumed their line of battle. Some loss was sustained by each of the brigades of the division from the cannonading, Wilcox's, which was supporting Alexander's artillery, suffering the most seriously. 66

71 There was nothing done on July 4. Late in the evening, I received orders to draw off the division as soon as it became dark, and take the road to Fairfield. On the 5th, I was directed to hold the gap in the mountains between Fairfield and Waynesborough. In the evening, I moved to a place called Frogtown, at the base of the mountain. At 6 p.m. on the 6th, moved toward Hagerstown. Halted on the morning of the 7th about 2 miles from the town, and remained in camp until July 10. On the afternoon of the 10th, moved about 3 miles beyond Hagerstown, in the direction of Williamsport, and on the morning of the 11th moved 2 miles, and took a position in line of battle, with the right resting on the Boonsborough and Williamsport turnpike, the general direction of the line being at right angles to that road. The enemy was in view on the hills in our front. Skirmishers were advanced at once, and the troops were diligently employed in strengthening the position. We lay in this line until the night of the 13th, when we marched just after dark toward the Potomac, which we crossed the following day (the 14th) at Falling Waters. On the 15th, moved to Bunker Hill, at which place we remained until the 21st, when the march was resumed, and the division encamped on that night 2 miles south of Winchester. On the 22d, crossed the Shenandoah, and halted for the night at Front Royal. On the 23d, the division marched at daylight, Wright's brigade, under command of Colonel Walker, being detached, to relieve a brigade of the First Corps, on duty at Manassas Gap. This brigade had a very sharp encounter with a greatly superior force of the enemy at Manassas Gap, and behaved with its accustomed gallantry. Colonel Walker was severely, but not dangerously, wounded in the beginning of the fight, when the command devolved upon Captain [B. C.] McCurry, who, being incapacitated by ill-health and feebleness, subsequently relinquished it to Captain [C. H.] Andrews. The division encamped on the night of the 23d at Flint Hill. On the 24th, while pursuing the march, and when near Thornton River, some skirmishing occurred between the leading division (Heth's) and the enemy. Mahone's brigade relieved Walker's (Heth's division) which had been posted to support the artillery and to cover the road, and continued in that position until the rear of the corps had passed, when it followed and rejoined the division on the south of Hazel River. On July 25, the command arrived at Culpeper Court-House. The total loss sustained by the division in the battle of Gettysburg, the fight at Manassas Gap, and in minor affairs, is 2,266. The reports of the commanders of brigades, including Captain Andrews' report of the fight at Manassas Gap, are herewith submitted. The members of my staff--majs. T. S. Mills and R. P. Duncan, assistant adjutant and inspectors general; Lieuts. William McWillie and S. D. Shannon, aides-de-camp, and Messrs. R. D. Spann and J. G. Spann, volunteer aides-de-camp--by their active and zealous attention to their duties, rendered valuable services at all times and upon all occasions. The conduct of the troops under my command was in the highest degree praiseworthy and commendable throughout the campaign. Obedient to the orders of the commanding general, they refrained from taking into their own hands retaliation upon the enemy for the inhuman wrongs and outrages inflicted upon them in the wanton destruction of their property and homes. Peaceable inhabitants suffered no molestation. In a land of plenty, they often suffered hunger and want. Onefourth of their number marched, ragged and barefooted, through towns in which it was well ascertained that the merchants had concealed supplies of clothing. In battle they lacked none of that courage and spirit which has ever distinguished the soldiers of the Army of Northern Virginia, and, if complete success did not attend their efforts, their failure cannot be laid upon their shortcoming, but must be recognized and accepted as the will and decree of the Almighty disposer of human affairs. I am, very respectfully, your most obedient servant, R. H. ANDERSON, Major-General, Commanding Division. Eli married Julia Anna Rawls 16 on 10 Jan 1867 in Nansemond Co., VA.

Bolden Riddick Doughtie, son of William (Henning) Doughtie and Ann (Nancy) Elizabeth Smith, was born in Mar 1847 in Gates Co, NC (Around Edenton), died on 27 Jul 1921 in Nansemond Co, VA. at age 74, and was buried in Liberty Springs Christian Church Cemetery, Nansemond Co., VA. Another name for Bolden was Bolling Riddick Doughtie. General Notes: The 1860 Federal Census for Gates Co., NC records a Bolden Riddick (47-VA) (indexed as Rolden Riddick) with wife Sally (57) with children William (19), Mary (17), P. L. (15), and James (12). Next door is William M. (26) and Martha C. (26) Daughty with children Mary S. (4), Heber (3), and William (1). The 1850 census for Gates Co., NC records Thomas B. (37) and Sarah (47) Reddick with children William A. (9) Mary S. (7), Martha L. (5), and James R. (3). This may or may not be someone related to Bolden Riddick Doughtie... Bolden Riddick Doughtie Bolden Riddick Doughtie was known to many as B. R. His grandson Nansemond Co., VA (Cir 1890) and namesake did not like the name Bolden Riddick and went by B. R. just as his grand dad had done. I was fortunate to talk with that grandson, "B R" Doughtie, via telephone in 2002 (see notes on that grandson). Bolden Riddick Doughtie was born about 1847 in Gates Co., North Carolina (around Edenton) but came to Nansemond Co, VA in his childhood on Feb. 15, 1852 according to a letter written in 1973 by Robert Bruce Johnson to Ethel Daughtrey Ellis. This fact had been researched by Bobby Jones 1973 and was found in Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia, published in The 1850 N.C. census, Gates Co. lists Bolden as Robbin: The 1850 Federal Census for Gates Co., NC page 25B records William (41-Wheel Maker) and Nancy (35) Doughtie with children Henning (14), Ann W. (12), Elnathan (8), James T. (6), Robbin (4), and Joshua (1). The 1860 Federal Census for the Upper Parish of Nansemond Co., Va. (page 621) records William H. Dowdy (51) with his wife Nancy Doughtie (48) and children Ann (21), Nathan (17), James (16), Boldin (13), Joshua (11), and William (8). William is listed as a farmer and all family members are born in N.C. He is reasonably successful in that he has real estate valued at $3,000 and personal property at $1,300. The 1870 Federal Census for Cypress Chapel, Nansemond Co., Va. (page 212) records William H. (61) and Elizabeth A, (55) Doughty with children Bolden (22) and William (18). Also in this census is Daily (30) and Elizabeth (9) Doughty. This may be the family of William's son, Nathan, who died in the Civil War. The 1880 Federal Census for Cypress Chapel, Nansemond Co., Va. (ED#53, page 66B) records Bolling R. (34), Cornelia O. (32), Lydia O. (7), Alnona (6), and Anna C. (3) Doughte living in the Cypress Magisterial District. Mary Etta Miltiere (16), who marries Bolden after Cornelia dies, is living with her parents and siblings next door to Bolden, Cornelia, and family.

Cornelia had died in February 1894 and 18 months later Bolden married Mary Etta Milteer. BR's grand daughter, Inez Daughtrey Hagen, this researher's mother, recalled Mary Etta was referred to as "Cousin Ett". 69

74 The 1910 Federal Census for the Holy Neck District of Nansemond Co., Va., ED 12 sheet 2B in Holland Town, records a Mary W. Milteer, widow, age 76, with daughter Martha E. Milteer, age 46, living next door to Bolden R. Doughtie, age 65, and his second wife Mary E., age 43, and son Luther, age 22. The record indicates Bolden and Mary have been married 14 years and that Bolden is a lumberman and opperates a sawmill. A 1930s historical reference in the Library of Virginia records the J. M. K. Daughtrey home lived in by Lester J. Daughtrey as 1 mile northwest of Holland on Rte # 58 then 1/2 mile southwest on Rte #651. Lester is living next door to Bolden in the 1910 census. The 1920 Federal Census of Nansemond County, Va. has Bolden and his second wife, Mary Etta, living near or on a road recorded as X [Cross] Roads and near the intersection of Holy Neck Road and Elwood Rd. Living with Bolden and Mary E. are his son Luther Carroll Doughtie and his family. The surnames are indexed as Daughter and Bolden as Balden. His obituary printed in 1921 is definitly Bolden Riddick. Doughtie is listed as Doughte, Doughtee, Dowdy, etc in various records. The Holland Peanut Company incorporated 1901 with Bolden R. Doughtie as president, T. L. Daughtrey as Vice-president, W. Carlton Doughtie as Secretary/Treasurer also Eley Daughtrey and David R. Roberts on the board of directors. (note - T.L. is Bolden's son-in-law, W. Carlton is Bolden's son, Eley is T.L.'s father, and David R. is the husband of Bolden's daughter Lydia) Bolden's tombstone is located at Liberty Spring Christian Church, at the intersection of Liberty Springs Road and Whaleyville Blvd. in Suffolk, Va., and has no dates.

76 CORNELIA O. WIGGINS MARRIED TO B.R. DOUGHTIE ON GRANDMOTHER WIGGINS See research notes on Cornelia's father & grand father to document the lives of Willis Wiggins the Elder & Willis Wiggins the Younger. Cornelia married Bolden Riddick Doughtie on 1 Dec 1870 in Nansemond Co., VA Green Berry (Nicholas) Adkins, son of Jackson Adkins and Elizabeth Adkins, was born on 11 Jan 1842 in Museville, Pittsylvania Co., VA,23 died on 20 May 1930 in Danville City, (Pittsylvania Co.), Virginia at age 88, and was buried in Adkins Family Cemetery At Green Berry's Farm. General Notes: The following is a statement of Green Berry's Civil War record taken from the Adkins Family Bible as written by his son John Preston Adkins on May 18, 1920: "Greenberry Adkins served 4 years in the Civil War. Volunteered at 18 years of age at Callands, Virginia, Pittsylvania County. Served in Company B [C according to pension records] under Captain John R. [Roy] Cabell [The Pittsylvania Vindicators were organized at Callands on May 23, 1861 by Dr. John Roy Cabell, Captain. They entered Confederate Service on June 4, 1861, Green Berry Adkins 38th Regiment of Infantry General Armstead's Brigade, Pickett's The original framed sketch is in the Division, Longstreet's Corp]. Two weeks before the surrender, when the possession of Ruth Hill and came from the home of Will and Lula Adkins at 485 West army was breaking up, many of the men, including himself, were told by Main St in Danville. This is where Greenberry went ot live, with his son's Lt. Warrebl [probably Lt. James P Warren] : 'We are whipped. Make family, in his later years. (Circa 1890) your way home the best you can.' (Note by Bo Hagen: This was after the 38th, serving as rear guard for Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, was over run by Union forces at the Battle of Saylers Creek, now wrongfully labeled Sailor's Creek, outside of Farmville, Va. Lt. Warrebl is probably Lt. James P. Warren of Co. B, 38th Va. Infantry) He, (Gb. Adkins) walked home from Farmville, Va. to his home in Callands, Virginia. The residents along the way were very glad to furnish food and comfortable quarters. During the whole war he did not receive a scratch, but was shot through his clothing four times. One of the shots went through his frying pan at Drewry's Bluff." The above was taken from the family bible, probably in the John Preston Adkins Family. Since John lived in Lynchburg, Va. and died young (1922) his family probably lost touch with the Danville Adkins. Hopefully the Bible remains in the family. A family story had the old muzzle loader at Greenberry's farm as being the gun used by Greenberry during the war. Since all Confederate soldiers stacked their arms at Appomattox this seemed to be just that... another family story. However, the notes above relating to leaving the field after Sayler's Creek must be why Green Berry retained his musket (all soldiers present at Appomattox stacked their rifles). This puts credince into why the rifle remained at the farm he built after the war at Sandy River in Pittsylvania County. Great Grandson Ben Adkins still has that muzzle loader (September 2007). (Note by Bo Hagen: GB and several of his cousins were AWOL during the Pennsylvania Campaign of 1863 and missed the "High Water Mark of the Confederacy" where General Armstead, leading the 38th, was killed at the Angle at Gettysburg. As best I can tell, his absence was at a time when his father, Jackson, was ill. I have found records that he died in 1864 of "dropsy" (An old term for the swelling of soft tissues due to the accumulation of excess water... edema/swelling due to kidney failure or congestive heart failure). There are some family stories that reference Jackson was killed in the war but I can fine (to date) no record of his serving in the regular army in support of "The Cause". I have found a pension application record from Elizabeth Adkins of Pittsylvania Co. dated 1888 applying for a pension due a soldier's widow. On the pension application Elizabeth notes that her husband, Jackson, served in Co. C, 5th Res(erves) (Vol 15, page 448, Muster rolls, VSLA) and died March 14, 1864 "at home on furlough from dropsy contracted in the Army". This unit was not a part of the Confederate Army 72

77 raised by the State of Virginia but a Confederate Army unit raised directly by the Confederate States of America. Some refer to this type of unit as "Home Guards". They were usually entrusted with guard duty for local Union prisoners. There was such a prison in Danville, Va. so Jackson may have served there. During the war it was not uncommon for soldiers to temporarily leave the army for personal reasons such as above. After all, somebody had to keep the homelands functioning... looking after family... getting crops planted and harvested... after all, that is why those boys were fighting... their own independence. Green Berry did return to the Army and served in the defense of Richmond. He was on rear guard for Lee's Army during the retreat to Appomattox. Their unit was overrun at Saylers Creek (outside Farmville, Va.) so quickly that it would have been all but impossible to break through the enemy lines to rejoin the main army. He was advised by the remaining officer that it was pointless to continue so he walked home. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 38th Regiment, Virginia Infantry (Pittsylvania Regiment) 38th Infantry Regiment was organized in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, in June, Its members were recruited in Pittsylvania, Halifax, and Mechlenburg counties.

The 38th participated in the campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from Williamsburg to Gettysburg, then served in North Carolina. Later it was attached to the Department of Richmond, fought at Drewry's Bluff and Cold Harbor, endured the hardships of the Petersburg trenches, and ended the war at Appomattox. The regiment totalled 544 effectives in April, 1862, and sustained 9 casualties at Williamsburg, 147 at Seven Pines, 94 at Malvern Hill, and 16 in the Maryland Campaign. More than fifty-five percent of the 400 engaged at Gettysburg were disabled and it reported 11 killed, 30 wounded, and 10 missing at Drewry's Bluff. The unit surrendered 12 officers and 82 men. Its commanders were Colonels Joseph R. Cabell, Edward C. Edmonds, George K. Griggs, and Powhatan B. Whittle; Lieutenant Colonel George A. Martin; and Majors Isaac H. Carrington and Henderson L.

Charlie Franklin Belcher, son of Benjamin Franklin Belcher and Janie "Jencie" Hunt, was born on 14 Feb 1850 in Franklin Co., Virginia, 24 died on 11 Apr 1926 in Rocky Mount, Franklin Co., VA. at age 76, and was buried in Belcher Cemetery, Snow Creek, Franklin Co., VA at Uncle Tom's. General Notes: Notes by Harry T. Adkins indicate that Charlie and Marcella lived in the Snow Creek area of Franklin Co., VA. This is confirmed in 1880 Census: The 1880 Federal Census for Snow Creek, Franklin Co., VA, District 109, page 198B records Charles F. (29) and Marceler (sic) (indexed as Maralee at ancestry.com) (29) Belcher with children William (7), Henry (6), and Lula (5). The 1900 Federal Census Snow Creek, Franklin Co., VA, ( ED 35, Page 237A) records Charlie F. (b Feb. 1850) and Marcella (b Dec. 1849) Belcher married 27 years with children Sallie P. (Feb 1886), Hattie A. (b June 1888), Jane E. (b Nov. 1894), and Montague C. (b Oct. 1897) living in Snow Creek, Franklin Co., VA. Charlie and Marcella have had 8 children of which 7 are still living. This family remains in Snow Creek through the 1920 Federal Census but does not appear in the 1930 Census. Snow Creek is in the south eastern part of the county near the convergence of Henry, Pittsylvania, and Franklin Counties. As told by Bea Akers in a March 2004 interview: "The house burned in 1925 and Charlie and Marcella came to live with Dillard and Sallie Akers. The Parcel family bought the Belcher Home Place after Tom died." [Tom is Charlie's brother.] Noted events in his life were: He was employed Farming (1880 / 1900). Charlie married Marcella Eleanor Minter about 1872 in Franklin Co., Virginia. Children from this marriage were: William Belcher was born about 1873 in Snow Creek, Franklin Co., Virginia and died circa 1890 in Snow Creek, Franklin Co., VA about age 17. i Henry Oscar Belcher was born on 3 Sep 1874 in Snow Creek, Franklin Co., Virginia, died on 9 Jan 1956 in Bluefield, Mercer Co., West Virginia at age 81, and was buried in Monte Vista Cemetery, Bluefield, Mercer Co., West Virginia. 75

Charles Montague Belcher was born on 14 Oct 1895 in Snow Creek, Franklin Co., VA. and died in Jul 1966 in Virginia Beach, VA. at age Marcella Eleanor Minter, daughter of William Silas (Billy) Minter and Julia A. Law, was born on 1 Dec 1849 in Franklin Co., Virginia,25 died on 23 Oct 1938 in Callaway, Franklin Co., VA. at age 88, and was buried in Belcher Cemetery, Snow Creek, Franklin Co., VA. At Uncle Tom's. General Notes: The 1850 Federal Census, Henry County, Virginia taken August 1, 1850 lists Marcella E. Minter (8/12 years old) with parents William (22) and Julia H. (20). Even though her headstone read "1848", I believe her actual year of birth to be this would also be consistent with a Jan 1849 marriage for her parents. Marcella is listed as Marcella E. Belcher in the 1920 Federal Census and Macela in the 1930 census where she is living with her daughter Hattie's family... see general notes on her son-in-law, Alfred H. Meador. Marcella and Charlie came to live with Sallie and Dillard after their home burn around Marcella was living with her daughter, Hattie, at the time of her death as told by Bea Akers in March 2004 interview. In a recollection by Mary Lou Adkins Hagen, Marcella was known as Marcella Ella by daughter Jaynie Belcher. In a Nov conversion, Desmond Kendricks, Archivist for Henry Co., Va., relates that Marcella was known as "Ella". Marcella married Charlie Franklin Belcher about 1872 in Franklin Co., Virginia. 60.

General Notes: Joseph Walton Garrett went to Wise School where Mr. Wise was his first teacher. He was later taught by Mr. Richard Henderson. He soon went to Griffin's School where his teacher was John Wilson. He then attended McCollom School where hs teacher was Joe McCoy. By age 16 he decided to hire out to Bill Newman. By age 22 he met and married Callie Coleman. He farmed alone and sometimes with his brothers. He was married to Callie for 14 years before she died at age 34 in In 1899 he married Sallie Jarrett. Joseph Walton Garrett (Cir 1925) The 1880 Federal Census for Wentworth, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, District 235, page 178A records Joseph Garrett (22) living with his brother, Robert Garrett (24). No one else is in the household. 76

81 The 1900 Federal Census for Huntsville, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, District 71, page 2A records Joseph W. (May 1858) and Sarah E. (Dec 1879) Garrett with children William B. (April 1900), Albert E. (Jan 1882), and Nancy P. (June 1885). Robert M. Garrett (July 1855), Joseph's brother (Newt) is listed as a boarder. Joseph and Sarah have been married 1 year. Nearby is Joseph's brother, James W. Garrett, and his family. The 1910 Federal Census for New Bethel Township, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, District 161, page 11A records Joseph W. (51) and Sallie E. (30) Garrett with children Bolden (10) and Poet (8) living on Baggage Road via New Bethel Academy. The 1920 Federal Census for Huntsville, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, District 197, page 131B records Joe W.

The 1930 Federal Census for Huntsville, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, District 2, page 149A, dated April 5, 1930 records Joseph W. (71) and Sallie E. H. (50) Garrett with sons Joseph W. (18), and Robert P. (27) and Robert's wife Laura (21). Joseph state he was first married at age 22 while Sallie was first married at age apparently Sallie was previously married. Robert has been married since age 24 and Laura since age 19. It is of interest that Joseph Walton Garrett, in census records, usually states his mother as being born in Virginia. In the 1860 Federal Census, Joseph's mother, Clarisey, states that she was born in New York (see notes on Jarrett Bolden Garrett). Noted events in his life were: He worked as a working mostly on the Garrett farm. Joseph married Caledonia (Callie) Coleman on 15 Feb 1881 in Rockingham Co, NC. Children from this marriage were: 30 Albert Earle Garrett Sr. i Nannie Pearl Garrett was born on 17 Jun 1885 in J B Garrett Farm Near Madison N.C., died on 13 Jan 1973 in Reidsville, Rockingham Co., NC at age 87, and was buried on 15 Jan 1973 in Woodland Cemetery, Madison, Rockingham Co., NC.

Nannie Jarrett This picture was taken with her step daughter-in-law, Susie Blackwell Garrett in Rockingham Co., NC and has been cropped - Sallie is the wife of Joe Garrett (Cir 1915) 61. Caledonia (Callie) Coleman, daughter of George A. Coleman and Sarah F. (Fannie) Hagood, was born in 1861 in Rockingham, N. C., died in 1895 in Heart Trouble/Consumption at age 34, and was buried in Garrett Farm in Rockingham, N. C.. General Notes: According to son Albert Earl Garrett, Sr., Callie Coleman, was left an orphan at 2 or 3 years old. Her father, George Coleman, was last heard from in a letter written just before the battle of Gettysburg. After hearing of her husband's death, Callie's mother, Fannie Haygood, sent her three children to live with their Uncle Jimmy Haygood and killed herself. (see notes on George Coleman) It is a fact that the 1880 Federal Census, North Carolina, Rockingham County, Oregonville, shows a Caledonia Haygood (grand daughter - 18) living with a James Haygood (73) family. This is our Callie Coleman, Caledonia Coleman Garrett soon to be wife of Joseph Walton Garrett. (See notes on Callie's mother, Wife of Joseph Walton Garrett of Rockingham Co., N.C. (1890) Sarah Fannie Ha(y)g(w)ood.) Albert Garrett's family story about "Uncle Jimmy" and Fannie with the shotgun after Gettysburg are apparently not true. "Uncle Jimmy" seems to be "Grand Dad Jimmy" (1880 census) and Fannie (Sarah) is alive and well as recorded in the 1870 census. However, George is not with the family at that time in I believe our George is the George Coleman of record who mustered into the 45th North Carolina in Feb He was captured at Spotsylvania Court House in May 1864, taken to Point Lookout Prison and died in June (See notes on George Coleman, Callie's father.) Notes from Clara Garrett Fountain in Oct indicate:" Jim Hagood reared Caledonia Coleman. Taylor Hagood reared Nannie and Jeff Coleman and Dr. Raine reared George Coleman." It should be noted that George Anderson Coleman later married Catherine Troxler and named their first born daughter Anne Raine Coleman... however George can not be found in the 1880 census. A Dr. John Raine is found with his wife Lucy but George is not living with them. That same census confirms Nannie living with Taylor Hagood but Jeff is no where to be found. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 78

83 The following is taken from a Christmas Letter written by Clara Garrett Fountain ca 2000 and was sent to many of her cousins in an effort for those relations to have a more intement knowledge of their ancestor, Caledonia "Callie" Coleman Garrett. Caledonia Coleman, This is a photograph of Caledonia Coleman (mother of A. E. Garrett, Sr.) with a cousin, probably Augustus W. Hagood. [Photograph was enclosed in the letter] Caledonia (Callie) Coleman was born in 1861 in Rockingham County, N.C., on the old James Hagood farm on the south side of Dan River and east of Draper, N.C. She was the daughter of Fannie Hagood and George Coleman. Caledonia Coleman was one of four children born to Fannie Hagood and George Coleman: Edgar Jefferson Coleman, b.1858; Nannie Elizabeth Coleman, b.1860(?); Caledonia Coleman, b.1861; and George Anderson Coleman, b Fannie died a few years after the birth of her fourth child. Albert E. Garrett, Sr., claimed that "Granddaddy Jim Hagood reared Caledonia Coleman, Taylor Hagood reared Nannie and Jeff Coleman, while Dr. Raine of Wentworth reared George Coleman." On February 15, 1880 or 1881, Caledonia married Joseph Walton Garrett in Rockingham County, N.C. They had three children: Albert Earle Garrett, Sr. (1882), Nannie Pearl Garrett (1885), and an infant son who was born dead and never named. One night while playing a game of set-back with Ralph Sharp and someone else, Callie took sick very suddenly. She had a spell, fainted, and was put to bed. The doctor came the next morning (she had two doctors, a Dr. Carter and a Dr. Motherson). Callie was sick for several months, in bed all the time. Nannie Coleman Setliff, her sister, helped tend her. Caledonia Coleman died at age 34, of heart trouble and consumption. She died in May 1895 and was buried on the Garrett farm in Rockingham County, NC. There is very little else known about this woman, the mother of A. E. Garrett. I have two letters that she wrote to Joseph Walton (Joe) Garrett, or rather she had someone else write at her dictation as Callie could neither read or write. May 30th 1880 Mr. J. W. Garrett, I was somewhat surprised at the receipt of your note this morning & I am so much oppose to writeing that I am at a loss to know what to say in reply to it. Friend, Joe, I think a great deal of you as a friend and will from my affections for you. I will acknowledge that I am a little fickle minded but hope to become more esettled. I guess you think me quite plain, but I don't believe in deceit, especially on the love subject. Excuse all mistakes, bad writing and spelling. From your true Friend, Callie [On the back of the letter is this poem: Let thy heart be ever with me Pure and true as sunlight ray May no harm on earth befall thee Till we meet another day.] Wednesday Morning March 18th, 1880 Mr. Joe Garrett, Kind Friend, As I do not approve of conversing in the way of letter writing, but as you insist on me 79

84 answering your letter, I will do so and if it was not for the confidence that I place in you believing that you will not expose the contents of this by either way showing or telling it. Joe, I have allways heard love on first sight soon dies away and as for myself I have allways respected you verry highly ever since I first met with you. I think you must be gesting when you say you love me. Don't you think it would be best for us to let the love subject rest awhile untill further considered as we both are young and our minds might change verry much from what they are now as we get older. Please let no one see this. Excuse bad writing and spelling and dictating. So good bye. Your Friend as ever, Callie (I have no idea what the numbers and dots mean!) [On the back of this letter is another poem: Remember me today Remember me tomorrow Remember me in all your prayers Remember me in sorrow ] (?) Since I am in possession of the large cotton spinning wheel that belonged to Fannie Hagood Coleman (which used to be in the attic at 325 Linden Drive), I would love to know more on the history of the Coleman and Hagood families. Does anyone in the family have further documentation on these families? Please share with me. Thanks. Merry Christmas, Clara Caledonia married Joseph Walton Garrett Sr. on 15 Feb 1881 in Rockingham Co, NC. 62. John Pomphrette W.

I might say much more of her excellent qualities but I forbear. "Those who knew her best loved her most" and none of us need desire a better epitaph than this. Her bereaved family have the sympathy of all. A FRIEND Sallie married John Pomphrette W. Blackwell Jr. on 1 Feb 1870 in Cokesbury, Granville Co, NC.26 82

89 Seventh Generation (4th Great-Grandparents) 64. John Harvey. John married Mary Lavery on 27 Dec 1835 in Lismaine Townland, Magheralin Parrish, County Down, Ireland. Children from this marriage were: 32 Edmund Harvey i Patrick Harvey was born circa 1845 in Ireland and died on 28 Jan 1928 in Kilmore, Glenariff, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, UK at age Mary Lavery. Mary married John Harvey on 27 Dec 1835 in Lismaine Townland, Magheralin Parrish, County Down, Ireland. 66. Neal Murray was born circa 1835 in Ireland and died after 1901 in Townland Laney, Lower Glenarm, County Antrim, Ireland. Neal married Mary. Children from this marriage were: 33 Ann Murray i Rose Ann Murray was born circa 1865 in Ireland and died after 1911 in Townland Laney, Lower Glenarm, County Antrim, Ireland. ii William Murray was born circa 1867 in Ireland and died after 1911 in Townland Laney, Lower Glenarm, County Antrim, Ireland. iv.

Neal Murray was born circa 1874 in Ireland and died after 1911 in Townland Laney, Lower Glenarm, County Antrim, Ireland. 67. Mary was born circa 1835 in Ireland and died after 1901 in Townland Laney, Lower Glenarm, County Antrim, Ireland. Mary married Neal Murray. 74. Kadian. Kadian married Bridget Kadian. Children from this marriage were: Patrick Kadian was born in Nov 1833 in Ireland and died after i Catherine Kadian ii Margaret Kadian was born about 1847 in Ireland and died after 1860 in Cochecton, Sullivan Co., N. Y Bridget Kadian was born about 1813 in Ireland and died after 1870 in Cochecton, Sullivan Co., New York. General Notes: In the 1880 Federal Census, Bridget is a widow living with her daughter's (Edward Scott) family in Cochecton, New York. The 1870 Federal Census records a Bridget Kaden (indexed as Raden) as 38 years old living with the Edward Scott family. The 1860 Federal Census for Jeffersonville Post Office, Cochecton, New York, page 467, recorded July 14, 1860, several pages over from Edward Scott, lists Bridget Kagan (48) in the same household as Patrick (25), Catherine (18), and Margaret (13) Kagen. All members of this household being born in Ireland. This is most likely the same family listed in 1870 with Catherine married to Edward Scott and the Patrick Kaden family living next door. Since Margaret (13) is listed as being born in Ireland, this 85

90 family must have immigrated as a family sometime after 1847 and before The 1870 census records Bridget living with her daughter and husband, Catherine and Edward Scott... see general notes on Edward Scott for 1870 census facts. The 1900 Federal Census, New York, Sullivan Co., Cochecton, ED 83, page 53A, records Patrick Kegan still living next to the Edward Scott family. Patrick is a widow and his daughter Agnes continues to live with him. The Sullivan County Historical sent documents in January 2004 that indicate Briget's name as Kadian. An discussion with Mr. Paul Lewis, AP History Teacher at Cleveland Hill High School, Carrollton (New Ireland), Cattaraugus Co., N.Y., describe the Kadian name as an English version of the Irish Brogue for Keating. Other variations for the name include Kaden, Kadien, Caton, Cayton, Kayton, and Kating. The 1900 Federal Census records the widower Patrick Kadian living in Cochecton, Sullivan Co., N.Y. as having immigrated to the U.S. in which means Bridget and family did as well. Bridget married Kadian. 78. Johannes Rohrbach, son of Johannes Rohrbach and Unknown, was born in Nov 1825 in Bern, Switzerland, died on 23 Apr 1889 in West Branch, Potter Co., Ohio at age 63, and was buried in Germania, Potter Co., PA.. General Notes: Johannes Rohrbach and family are listed in the New York Passengers: data base at ancestry.com. I believe this to be the correct family because: 1) they arrive Nov. 19, 1860, 2) the mother is listed as Catherine Rohrbach, born 1826, 3) the youngest child is Rosine Rohrbach, age 7/12, 4) they are from Switzerland, and 5) the facts just listed are consistent with 1870 and 1880 census records discribing the actual family. This immigration list includes other family members: Andreas Rohrbach, age 14, Catherine Rohrbach, age 11, Anna Rohrbach, age 5, and Rosine, 7 months. The ship's name is recorded as Mercury and the port of departure was Le Havre, France. (This list is from the National Archives, Washington, D.C.: Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York, New York Micropublication M237, Rolls # ) The 1870 Federal Census, Town of Liberty, Sullivan Co., N.Y., page 571, records John Rorebock, age 45, wife Kate, age 44, with children Andrew (24), Ann (16), Rosa (10), John (8), Michael (6), and Caroline (3). All are born in Switzerland except the three youngest children. The 1880 Federal Census, Town of Liberty, Sullivan Co., N.Y., ED# 100, page 198D, records John Roorbrook, age 55, wife Kate, age 454, with children John (18), Michael (16), Carrie (12), and Lucy (6). The next page records Andrew Roahbork (Roohbook-35) with wife Kate (35) and children Hattie (8), Hannah (6), John (4), and Libbie (2). Johannes married Katherina (Kate) Jaggi on 15 Jan 1845 in Meiringen, Bern, Switzerland. Children from this marriage were: Andreas (Andrew) Rohrbach was born in Feb 1846 in Meriengen, Bern, Switzerland and died about 1913 in Sullivan Co., N.Y. about age 67. i Catherine Rohrbach was born about ii Anna Rohrbach was born about iv.

91 79. Katherina (Kate) Jaggi, daughter of Johannes Jaggi and Anna Egger, was born on 27 Jan 1826 in Meiringen, Bern, Switzerland, died on 28 Sep 1905 in Germania, Potter Co., Ohio at age 79, and was buried in Germania, Potter Co., Ohio. General Notes: See notes on daughter Rosa. The 1900 Federal Census for West Branch Township, Potter Co., Pa., page 329 B, records "Kate" as a widow with 10 children, 6 of which are still alive. Katherina married Johannes Rohrbach on 15 Jan 1845 in Meiringen, Bern, Switzerland. 96. Edwin Walter (Watters) Hagen I,2 son of Levi Hagen and Ann R. Conrad, was born on 22 Sep 1854 in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA., died on 25 Apr 1949 in Drewry's Bluff, Chesterfield Co., VA.3 at age 94, and was buried on 27 Apr 1949 in Riverview Cemetery (Adjacent To Hollywood Cem), Richmond, VA. The cause of his death was Basal Lobar Pneumonia / Senility. General Notes: Edwin is listed as a salesman at age 15 in the 1870 census. From Edwin is a Clerk in a store (J. F. Eby in Maggie and Edwin Taken at their son's home in Chesterfield Lancaster, Pa.) and living at 44 South Water Street. He is named Co., VA at Drewry's Bluff. (Cir 1918) foreman in He is still listed as a salesman in the 1900 census in Lancaster City, Pa. but is now living at 131 North Charlotte Street. It is of interest that J. F. Eby is listed as a Liveryman in a book, The farmers' directory of Lancaster County (except Lancaster City) Pennsylvania, written in See research notes on Edwin W. Hagen for a biographical sketch of J. F. Eby. Note: A 1897 Lancaster City Directory records Edwin W. Hagen, Foreman J. W. Eshelman, res 131 Charlotte. The 1880 United States Federal Census for Lancaster City, PA, Dist. 152 (Forth Ward) (page 84A) taken June 4, 1880 records Edwin W. (25) and Margaret A. (35) Hagen with children Edwin W. (7), Emma S. (5), Charles E. (2), and Nettie S. (1/30 - June 1) living at 44 South Water Street. One page over are Edwin's parents. Levi (53) is a puddler in a roll mill and is living at 27 West German Street (now Farnum Street) with his wife Ann R. (48) and children Agnes A. (22), Mary A. (17), Frank (15), and William (11). The 1900 Federal Census for Lancaster City, Ward 5, PA (ED#52, page 28A) taken June 5, 1900 records Edwin W. (Sept PA/PA/Maryland) and Margaret A. (Jan PA/PA/PA) Hagen with their daughter Annetta S. (June 1880) living at 131 North Charlotte Steet. Edwin and Margaret have been married for 29 years and Margaret has had 7 children of whom 5 are still living. Edwin works as a salesman while Annetta at the Umbrella Factory. Annette will soon marry George Frank and give birth to a baby girl (see general notes on Annette Salome Hagen). The 1910 Federal Census for Lancaster City, Ward 5, PA (ED#70, page 164A) records E. W. (54 PA/PA/MAryland) and Margaret A. (61 - PA/PA/PA) Hagen living at 131 North Charlotte Steet. Margaret's mother, Salome Pearson (86), is living with them. Edwin and Margaret have been married for 38 years and Margaret has had 6 children 4 of whom are still living. Salome has had 2 children both of whom are still living. Edwin is a Foreman in a Grain House. [City Directories indicate that Edwin worked for J. F. Eby. The 1910 census reports Edwin working in a Grain House and 1910 census records report a Jonas F. Eby working as a Grain Dealer... see research notes on Edwin Hagen for a sketch on J. F. Eby.] Edwin and Maggie will live there until she dies in On the previous page of the census, Margaret's widowed sister, Mary Eberly is living at 314 West Chestnut Street with her children: William J. Eberly (43), Elsie E. Reily (40-widow), and Robert P. Eberly (24). Next door at 306 West Chestnut are Maggie's Aunts Fianna Barr and Anna M. Shirk and Uncle Reuban Shirk. The 1920 Federal Census for Ward 5 of Lancaster City, Pa. (ED#62, page 157B) records Edwin W. (66) and Margaret A. (76) Hagen living at 131 North Charlotte Steet. Edwin reports that his father was born in Pennsylvania and mother in Maryland while Margaret reports her father was born in Delaware and mother in Pennsylvania. Edwin lists his occupation as Foreman in a Feed Business. 87

92 The following is a surprise that does not fit the family stories that Edwin stayed in Richmond, VA after the death of his wife. Apparently he stayed with his sister for at least a while in New Jersey: The 1930 Federal Census for New Jersey, Ocean City, District 13, page 76A records the widower Edwin W. Hagen (75 - NJ/ PA/ Maryland) in the home of Sarah E. Beck (64 - S). Actually Sarah is the proprietor of a hotel at 410 Ocean Avenue and valued at $45,000. She is the owner as well. Also in the household is Edwin's widowed sister, Mary A. Lenox (66 - NJ/ PA/ Maryland). See general notes on his great grand son, Bennett W. Palmore (son of the daughter of his son, Charles L. Hagen), for 1940 census facts. During his time in Lancaster it appears he worked at and/or for someone or business with a Mr/Mrs. Baker. His future wife, Margarett Ann Pearson had been married to a Baker and these people all lived and worked in the same area of Lancaster, Pa. Edwin and Margaret are no longer listed in the Lancaster City Directory as of Margaret dies in 1921 at Drewry's Bluff, Chesterfield, Va. apparently while visiting sons Edwin and Charles and is interred in Lancaster, Pa Edwin I left Lancaster, Pa. after his wife's death in It was thought that Edwin moved to Richmond, Virginia after the death of his wife, Margaret, to live with/near Edwin II and children (Margaret, Mary, Charlie, Edwin, Helen, Lindsey, Jean) and his other son, Charles and his family, in Richmond. According to Charles' great grand daughter Judy Hagen Adams, Edwin spent the later years with his grand daughter and her husband, Mary and Drewry Palmore, in Chesterfield Co., Va (Actually Drewry Palmore was the name used annecdotally in various family stories and his actual name was Bennett Wesley Palmore as confirmed by his brother, Woodrow W. Palmore, in a telephone conversation with this researcher). As indicated above, in 1930 Edwin is living in Ocean City, Cape May, New Jersey with his sister, Mary A. (Hagen) Lenox. Sometime after that he comes to Richmond. There is a difference in opinion as the Edwin's middle name (see notes on son Edwin - the death certificate, the obituary, and family bible record Waters; however, son Edwin lists his own middle name as Walter on his marriage certificate (1893) and Draft Registration for WWI and is always known as a "Junior"). His headstone at Riverview reads "Edwin Walter Hagen" (I) because I believe "Walter" is correct and the simple fact that I contracted to have his previously unmarked grave commemorated and made what I believe to be the appropriate decision. (see notes on Edwin's maternal grandmother, Mary Ann Watters, to revise this conclusion) According to Lancaster City Directories: Edwin W. Hagen, foreman John W.

Below is a biographical sketch of that individual: JONAS F. EBY. Lancaster has its full quota of vigorous, enterprising, thoroughgoing business men. Whose popularity is based both upon their social qualities and on their well known integrity and business activity. None among these is better liked by those who have dealings with them, than the gentleman whose name heads this sketch, and who is carrying on a tine trade as wholesale commission and grain merchant in Lancaster in company with Mr. Eshelman. Our subject was born in Penn Township, this county, May 1, 1858, and is the son of,lohn N. Eby, also a native of Lancaster County, as 88

93 was airl his father, who bore the name of Jonas. The father of our subject was a farmer by occupation, and also dealt extensively in horses, having many fine animals on his estate. He is still living, although retired from active work, making his home at No. 20 East Walnut Street, this city. He served for many years as Justice of the Peace, and was ever ready to aid in benevolent work. Mrs. Charlotte (Becker) Eby, the mother of our subject, was also born in Penn Township, and reared a family of two children, of whom Jonas F. was the elder. His sister, Charlotte, is now the wife of 1). II. Engle, of Mt. Joy. The original of this sketch enjoyed the privileges of obtaining a good education, and remained at home until two years after attaining his majority. He was then married, and located on the farm where his birth occurred in Penn Township. This he afterward sold, and purchased one hundred and thirty acres in Fulton Township, this county, which he later traded, and located in this city. Two years later Mr. Eby engaged in buying and selling grain, and buying out B. B..11ostter, has ever since continued shipping grain on the Pennsylvania Road. In 1892 he added feed, hay and straw to his grain business, having his establishment located at No. 214 North Queen Street. In October, 1893, he took in as partner a Mr. Eshelman, and the firm is now known as Eby & Eshelman. The marriage of our subject occurred in 1875, at which time Miss Myra L. Weidler became his wife. She was the daughter of George Weidler, and by her union with Mr. Eby has become the mother of two children, B. Frank, who was graduated from the high school in 1892, and now a student at Yale College, and Lillie May. The family occupies a beautiful residence at No. 432 North Lime Street, and move in the best circles of society in the city. Mr. Eby is a strong Republican in politics, and belongs to the Philadelphia Commercial Exchange. He is a man of strong convictions, and as an earnest and public-spirited citizen commands the regard of all his friends and neighbors. Page 395 Married to: Elmira or Myra L Kreidler, b.

Annetta (Nettie) Salome Hagen was born on 1 Jun 1880 in Lancaster PA., died on 28 Feb 1928 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA. at age 47, and was buried on 2 Mar 1928 in Neffsville, Manheim Township, Lancaster Co., PA. The cause of her death was Bronchia Pneumonia. Adam John Hagen was born in 1881 in Lancaster City, PA., died on 29 Sep 1889 in Lancaster City, PA.8 at age 8, and was buried on 2 Oct 1889 in Lancaster Cemetery (Lot 1397), Lancaster, Lancaster County, PA. Helen Hagen was born in 1883 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA., died on 10 Dec 1891 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA. at age 8, and was buried in Lancaster Cemetery (Lot 1397), Lancaster, Lancaster County, PA. 97. Margaret Ann (Maggie) Pearson,4 daughter of William Jacob Pearson and Salome (Sally) Shirk, was born on 25 Jan 1842 in Lancaster, PA, died on 8 Mar 1921 in Drewry's Bluff, Chesterfield, VA. at age 79, and was buried on 10 Mar 1921 in Lancaster Cemetery (Lot 1097), Lancaster, Lancaster County, PA. The cause of her death was Congestion of the Lungs. General Notes: The 1850 Federal Census Lancaster City, Pa. (NW Ward, page 271) records Sarah (26), Margaret (8), and Mary (7) Sherk living in the household of Joseph (54) and Susana (53) Sherk. This Sarah Shirk is actually Salome Pearson, daughter of Joseph and Susanna Shirk, and a recent widow with two daughters, Margaret and Mary Pearson (see notes on Joseph Shirk, her father). The 1860 United States Federal Census for North East Ward, Lancaster City, Pa. (page 847B) records John Baker (33-Clerk), James (7), and Margaret (18) Baker. John Baker has real estate valued at $6,000 and a Margaret Ann Pearson Hagen Lancaster, PA (1893) personal estate at $700. This Margaret Baker is probably Margaret Pearson since Margaret is not living with her sister Mary and her widowed mother. (see notes on her grand mother Susanna Keller Shirk and mother Salome Skirk Pearson) The 1870 United States Federal Census for Lancaster City, Ward 1, Pa. (page 174) records John Baker (43-Recorder of Deeds), wife Elizabeth (40), son James (18) and daughter Annie M. (8). Also in the household are Maggie A. Baker (28), Lillie M. Baker (4), Mrs Susan Baker (72), and Annie M. Baker (34). This Maggie A. Baker is clearly Margaret Ann Pearson and Lillie (perhaps Lizzie) is her daughter Mary Elizabeth Baker while Mrs. Susan Baker and Annie M. Baker are actually Susanna and Anna M. Shirk. Elizabeth Baker, wife of John Baker above, is Susanna Shirk's daughter. [See general notes on Maggie's grand mother, Susanna Keller, for a more detailed discussion.] The 1880 United States Federal Census for Lancaster City, PA, District 152, page 84A records Edwin W. (25-Clerk in a Store) and Margaret A. (35) Hagen with children Edwin W. (7), Emma S. (5), Charles E. (2), and Nettie S. (1/30 - June 1) living at 44 South Water Street. Margaret is listed with a medical condition called "confinement". The 1900 Federal Census records Edwin and Margaret Pearson Hagen living at 131 N. Charlotte Street in Lancaster Pa. (ED#52, page 28A) down the street from her mother, Salome, who is living with her son-in-law John Adam and Mary Pearson Eberly. This census records Margaret as having 7 children of which 5 are alive. Since Edwin and Margaret had 6 children (Edwin, Emma, Charles, Annetta, Helen, and Adam John) and Adam died in 1889 and Helen in 1891, that means she had 1 by a previous relationship/marriage. That 1 child must be Mary Elizabeth "Auntie" Baker. I have never seen any 90

95 documentation for "Richard Harry Baker", however, Mary Lou Hagen Taylor indicates that he was indeed a son. In 1900 Maggie has been married 29 years. Her birth date is listed as Jan. 1842, however, her death certificate lists Jan Since her sister Mary is listed as Nov. 1843, the 1842 date is most likely correct. (Burial records from: Lancaster Cemetery records Adam J. Hagan and Helen Hagan buried in the same plot (#1397) Adam died Sept 29, 1889 while Helen died Dec 10, 1891, both at 8 years of age. The above conclusion of 2 children by a previous marriage is probably wrong... just 1: Mary Elizabeth Baker. Apparently Adam John and Helen Hagen were Edwin and Maggie's children who have died as of Research Notes: Cemetery records were posted (May 2006) at Medical Notes: State of Virginia Death Certificate Name: Mrs. Margaret Ann Hagen Residence: Bermuda District, Chesterfield Co., VA Residence: Chesterfield Co., VA Husband: Mr. Hagen Date of Death: March 8, 1921, died at 4:20 a.m. Cause of Death: Congestion of the Lungs, treated by a Doctor for 12 days prior Burial: March 9, 1921 at Lancaster, PA Father: Wm Pierson Mother: Miss Salome [looks like] Peercen [Peerson / Pearson / Pierson] Informant: Mr. Hagen of Chesterfield Margaret married Dr. Jacob E. Baker,9 son of Unknown and Unknown,. Marriage Notes: This researcher requested a Pennsylvania death certificate for Harry Baker covering but none was found, however, on March 24, 2009 Brian L. Klinger, Office of Records and Archives Services for Lancaster County responded to a request by this researcher with the following: As for divorce records, we do have a "divorce index", beginning in There are no Henry Baker/Becker divorces listed. There is an 1860 divorce between a Samuel W. Becker and a Mary Ann Becker, but that would hardly allow time, even if it was the correct one, for her to bear two children. And there is an 1869 divorce between a Jacob E. Baker and a Maggie A. Baker (#44 January 1869). But we don't have any accompanying paperwork for these cases (our civil documents don't begin until 1873). Children from this marriage were: Harry S. Baker was born in Mar 1862 in Lancaster Co., PA and died after 1940 in Denver Borough, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. i Mary Elizabeth (Auntie) Baker10 was born in 1865 in Lancaster, PA and died on 31 Aug 1948 in Richmond, Va. at age 83. Margaret next married Edwin Walter (Watters) Hagen I2 about 1871 in Lancaster City, PA. 91

96 98. Sylvester Rannels (Reynolds),11 son of Levi Rannels and Mary Ann Pierce, was born on 31 May 1848 in Lancaster Co., PA., was christened on 22 Mar 1852 in Records Of Trinity Lutheran Church, Reading, Berks Co., PA., died on 9 Jan 1900 in Philadelphia, PA. at age 51, and was buried on 13 Jan 1900 in Lancaster Cemetery, Lancaster, PA - Lot The cause of his death was Heart Disease. General Notes: Sylvester Rannels (Reynolds) served in the 215th Pa. Inf. Co.H. The unit was organized at Philadelphia April, Sylvester enlisted April 15, 1865 and was mustered out July 31, 1865 after a short stay at Fort Delaware where he was hospitalized due to injuries suffered while "lifting a shell to a truck" (according to his invalid pension application in 1890). His injury is described as a "left ventral hernia". At this time, in 1890, he is living at 37 North Plum, Lancaster, Pa. and has "never fully recovered, and his disability is growing worse". At his death on January 9, 1900, his wife, Emma Becker Rannels, applied for a widow's pension on January 20, She was living at 665 North 31st Street in Philadelphia. Emma dies later that year in March of appendicitis. Sylvester Rannels Sylvester was born in Lancaster Co., PA and served in the Union Army at the end of the Civil War. He was injured and given a medical discharge becoming a Shoemaker in Lancaster, PA. This picture of Sylvestor is taken from an Edwin W. Hagen and Mary Rannels Hagen family portrait taken ca 1903 where the portraits of Sylvestor and Emma are are hanging on the wall in the background. (Cir 1890) The above website allows access to Samuel P. Bates' History of the Pennsylvania Volunteers, This book gives rosters for all Pennsylvania Soldiers. See general notes on his father Levi for 1850 and 1860 census facts for Sylvester. The 1880 Federal Census for Lancaster, PA, District 162, page 267A taken June 4, 1880, has Sylvester Rannels (32 - PA/PA/PA) living at 312 North Mulberry Street with his wife, Emma (29), daughter, Mary (7), and twins, Ella and Ada (1 9/12). Sylvester's occupation is listed as a shoemaker. Within a few blocks of their home in Lancaster lives Mary's future husband, Edwin Walter Hagen Jr., at 44 South Water Street with his parents, Edwin and Maggie Hagen, and siblings Emma, Charles, and Nettie. Edwin and Maggie later moved to 131 North Charlotte Street. The William's Annual Lancaster City Directory 1888 lists Rannels Sylvester, shoemaker, 37 N Plum, h do [ditto]. The William's Annual Lancaster City Directory 1890 lists Rannels Sylvester, shoemaker, 37 N Plum, h do [ditto]. Sylvester is buried in Lancaster Cemetery in Lot 2185 next to his wife and father.

98 Philadelphia, PA. 99. Emma Becher, daughter of Jacob Becher and Mary Yundt, was born on 3 May 1851 in Lancaster Co., PA., died on 10 Mar 1900 in Philadelphia, PA. at age 48, and was buried on 13 Mar 1900 in Lancaster Cemetery, Lancaster, PA - Lot The cause of her death was Appendicitis. General Notes: There is an Emma Henry Becker, daughter of John and Mary Henry Becker of Lancaster Co., Pa. born Sept. 11, 1852 listed in the IGI Individual Records at familysearch.org. The 1860 Federal Census for West Hempfield, Lancaster Co., PA records this family. This is very likely the Emma Becker that married Sylvester Rannels, however, more research is necessary. The 1860 Federal Census for West Hempfield, Lancaster County, PA, Mountville P. O. records Emma H. Becker with her parents John D. (45) and Mary H. (35) Becker with siblings Isaac H. (4) and Aaron H. (1). John is a farmer with real estate valued at $4,000 and a personal estate at $495. Also in the household are Christian Becker (69) and his wife Mary (68). They are both listed as retired and are most likely John's parents. The census is taken in June 1860 and records Emma's age as 8. I have found no further record of this Emma's parents or siblings. Emma Becker Rannels Emma Becker was born in Lancaster Co., PA. She married Sylvester Rannels in This picture of Emma is taken from an Edwin W. Hagen and Mary Rannels Hagen family portrait taken ca 1903 where the portraits of Sylvestor and Emma are hanging on the wall in the background. (Cir 1890) The 1850 U.S. Census, Pennsylvania, Lancaster Co., Manor Township, page 147B records Christian Baker (59-Carpenter) with wife Mary (57) and children John D. Baker (32-wagon maker), Nicholas (26school teacher), Catherine (22), and Elizabeth (20). It is noted that the 1860 Federal Census, Pennsylvania, Lancaster Co., Manor Township records Nicholas C. Baker (35) with wife Martha (28) and son Henry (5/12). Emma and Sylvester were married in The marriage certificate indicates that Emma is living in Monterey, [Upper Leacock,] Lancaster Co. while Sylvester is living in New Holland just a few miles away. However, no 1870 census record for them has been found although there is a record of a Wesley (22) and Emma (20) Reynolds in West Earl Township which is near New Holland. Wesley is a Cigar maker and could be our Sylvester. No such Wesley and Emma have been found in the 1880 census record. Recent (Oct 2008) research has suggested a different family than the above for Emma Becker and a probable surname spelling of Becher: The 1870 Federal Census for Upper Leacock, Lancaster Co., PA, Leacock P. O., page 117 records Jacob (62) and Mary (55) Becher with daughter Amanda (12). Next door is William Reynolds (40) with his wife Eliza (41) and children Emma (14), George F. (10), Ella S. (7), and Ada S. (7). William has personal property valued at $400 and Jacob at $800. William is a carpenter while Jacob is a Shoemaker.... this is likely the family of our Emma Becher, recently married to William Reynold's nephew, Sylvester Rannels. Note that this location is just a few miles from New Holland and that Jacob is a Shoemaker, the post civil war occupation of Sylvester Rannells. Also, William has twin daughters named Ella and Ada, the same names Sylvester and Emma select for their twins born 8 years hence in Below are several census records for the Jacob Becher and family. Note that the spelling is consistently BECHER: The 1860 Federal Census for Upper Leacock, Lancaster Co., PA, Bareville P. O., page 872 records Jacob (52 - PA) and Mary (44 - PA) Becher [indexed as Becker at ancestry.com] with children Sarah (20), Mary (15), Elias Yount (13), Julian (11), Emma (10), Jacob (7), Lydia (4), and Amanda (2). Jacob is a butcher and Sarah is a Seamstress. Jacob has personal property valued at $400. Bareville is just a mile north of Monterey and similarly distanced west from New Holland on current maps; however, an 1864 map indicates that "Jb Becher" is just outside the northern edge of Monterey. 94

99 The 1850 Federal Census for the 4th Election District of Earl Township, Lancaster Co., PA, page 206 records Jacob (42 - PA) and Mary (34 - PA) Becher with children Sarah A. (11), Margarett (9), Mary (6), Elias (4), and Julian (1). Jacob is a shoemaker and has personal property valued at $800. New Holland is located in the western part of Earl Township next to Upper Leacock. This researcher feels that the circumstantial evidence points heavily toward this family as the parents of Sylvester Rannels' wife, Emma Becher. I will also go with the BECHER spelling of her surname. The 1880 Lancaster City census taken in June records Emma Rannels' age as 29. This is consistent with the 1860 record above and could mean a Sept 1851 birth. Emma Rannels' application for a widow's pension includes a marriage certificate indicating her name as Emma Becker and what looks to be Emma Becher. She reports to be from Monterey in Lancaster County... that is in Upper Leacock Township. Notes from Mary Lou Hagen Taylor, her great grand daughter, indicate her name as Emma Bucher. Emma is buried in Lancaster Cemetery in Lot 2185 next to her husband, Sylvester, and father-in-law, Lev Her headstone records (transcribed) her name as Anna Rannels, died March 10, 1900 at age 47. (Burial records from: Death date is on her headstone shown at the headstone reads: Mother Emma Rannels Born May 3, 1851 Died Mar 10, 1900 Aged 48 yrs 9 mo & 8 ds Medical Notes: According to Mary Louise Hagen Taylor, Emma died of acute Appendicitis in Philadelphia, PA 2 months after her husband.

100 The 1880 Census for Spring Township, Perry Co., PA, District 126, page 201A, dated June 22, 1880 records Adam (56 - Saxony/Saxony/Saxony) and Annie E. (57 - Saxony/Saxony/Saxony) Kile [Keil] continuing to live and farm in the same relative location for "Somebody and Rachel" from 1870 in Perry Co. (see above). In spite of the difference in the given names from 1870 to 1880, this is the same family, confirmed by the Keil family having the same neighbors in both the 1870 and 1880 census records (Richard and Abigail Adams is one such family, Levi and Martha Shearer is another). Adam Kile is listed as a farmer and both he and Annie are recorded born in Saxony. In researching where Adam, Anna, and family were living in 1860, it is of interest that Levi and Martha Shearer and family are recorded in the 1860 Federal Census for Freedom Township, Blair Co., Pa. page 187A: Levi (28) and Martha (20) Shearer with children Joseph (4) and Albert (4/12); 1870 for Spring Township, Perry Co., PA - Levi (39), Martha J.

Perhaps the Keils and Shearers were in Blair Co. together, however, to date I have not found any records of the Keils in 1860 (May 11, 2009). The Perry County Historians found a burial record for both Adam and Anna Keil.

Samuel George Cramer/Creamer,15 son of George Cramer/Creamer and Elizabeth, was born about 1823 in Warrington Township, York Co., Pennsylvania 16 and died circa 12 Aug 1893 near Sterretts Gap, PA on the border of Cumberland & Perry Cos. about age 70. The cause of his death was Complications from a variety of ailments... see medical notes. General Notes: The 1850 Federal Census of Eastpennsborough in Cumberland County, Pa. taken August 7, 1850 (page 391B) records Samuel Cremer, age 26, a Stone Mason, with wife Sarah A. (24), and child George W. (1) having been married within the last year. Samuel Cremer is listed as a "Tenent" in the home of his in-laws. Next door are Sarah's parents, Samuel (55 - PA, Carpenter) and Ann (47) Goudy with additional children William (25), Jacob (21), Nancy Jane (14), John (10), Susanna (8), and Catherine (6). Eastpennsboro is across the river from Harrisburg. The Samuel Cremer family is soon to move to Ohio in that their next child, Mary Ann., born ca 1854, is listed in the 1870 census as being born in Ohio (even though she is listed as born in PA in the 1860 census, see below for notes on the 1860 and 1870 census). Sometime in the early 1850s the Creamer family moved to Ohio. Samuel's father had died but his mother and brothers are part of the move. Sarah Goudy Creamer has lost her father and her family moves on as well, however, most of the Goudy family make the move north to Perry County less than 25 miles away. The Goudy family in Perry County is one reason young Missouri meets and marries David Keil, who is also living in Perry County. The 1860 Federal Census Enon (Mad River) Township, Clark Co., Ohio (page 313, June 15, 1860) records Samuel (35 - PA) and Sarah (34 - PA) Creamer (sic) with children George (11 - PA), Mary Ann (7 - PA), Phebe (4 - PA), David (2 - PA), and Baby (2/12 - PA) [Missouri]. Samuel is a Stone Mason and indicates that his real estate is valued at $200 and his personal estate is valued at $110. Living in the household next door is his brother Andrew Creamer (40 - PA), mother Elizabeth (70 - PA), and sister Mary (42 - PA). Elizabeth indicates that her real estate is valued at $310 and her personal estate is valued at $125. At the outbreak of the Civil War on July 31, 1862, Samuel G. Creamer, along with his brother Andrew, enlisted as a Private at the age of 38. He enlisted in Company G (from Clark Co.), 94th Infantry Regiment Ohio on August 23, 1862 and mustered out of Company G, 94th Infantry Regiment Ohio on June 5, 1865 in Washington, DC. His military records from The National Archives list him as 6 feet tall with a light complexion, blue eyes, and auburn hair. He enlisted with his brother Andrew in Springfield, Ohio for a period of 3 years and was mustered in at Camp Piqua, Ohio. Records indicate he was in the hospital at various times in Louisville (Sept 1862 to April due to sun stroke) and 97

102 Murfreesboro (June/July 1863). He was listed Sept 19/20, 1863 as Missing in Action at The Battle of Chickamauga and in the hospital at Chattanooga on Sept 21, It appears he was wounded and taken to a field hospital. From Nov to June 1865 he is listed as present on his company muster rolls. After Atlanta and Savannah, toward the end of the war, he moved up through the Carolinas with Sherman's Army until General Joe Johnston agreed to meet with Sherman to agree on terms. Johnston was in Greensboro while Sherman was camped near Raleigh. The surrender was signed at Bennett's House near Durham Station. It was during this time that Samuel was injured on or about the 15th of April 1865 under the following circumstances: From his pension records at the National Archives he writes "By the tube of my musket Bursting and either the Cap or a piece of the tube struck my right cheek." His name is repeatedly recorded as Creamer (although his pension applications are signed Cremer) and his place of birth, Cumberland Co., Pa. The death certificate of his daughter, Missouri, lists his place of birth as York Co., PA.

Total 199 The 94th Ohio has both a monument and a marker at the Chickamauga Battlefield Park. The 94th was part of the Army of the Cumberland at the Battle of Chickamauga. What follows is a brief history of that army Samuel Creamer was a part of: The origin of the Army of the Cumberland dates back to the creation of the Army of the Ohio in November, 1861, under the command of Brigadier General Robert Anderson. The army fought under the name Army of the Ohio until Major General William S. Rosecrans assumed command of the army and the Department of the Cumberland and changed the name of the combined entity to the Army of the Cumberland. When Rosecrans assumed command, 98

103 the army and the XIV Corps were the same unit, divided into three wings commanded by Alexander McCook (Right Wing), George H. Thomas (Center), and Thomas L. Crittenden (Left). The army's first significant combat was at the Battle of Stones River. After the battle the army and XIV Corps were separated. The former Center wing became the XIV Corps, the Right wing became the XX Corps, and the Left wing became the XXI Corps. Rosecrans still retained command of the army. He next led it through the Tullahoma Campaign and at the Battle of Chickamauga, after which the army became besieged at Chattanooga. Major General Ulysses S. Grant arrived at Chattanooga to assume command of the Army of the Cumberland, Army of the Tennessee, and reinforcements from the Army of the Potomac. Rosecrans had been a popular and respected commander, but due to his defeat at Chickamauga and inability to lift the Confederate siege, Grant chose to replace him with George H. Thomas on October 28, At the Battle of Chattanooga, Grant had been leery of using the Army of the Cumberland in the main fighting, fearing their morale to be too low after the defeat at Chickamauga. Instead, he used the veterans from the Army of the Potomac, proud of their recent victory at the Battle of Gettysburg, to take Lookout Mountain and planned to use the troops from the Army of the Tennessee, also recent victors at the Siege of Vicksburg, to attack the Confederate right flank on Missionary Ridge. The Army of the Cumberland was given the minor task of seizing the rifle pits at the base of Missionary Ridge. However, once they achieved their objective, four divisions (one led by Philip H. Sheridan) stormed up the ridge and routed the Confederate center. When Grant angrily asked who had ordered those troops up the ridge both Thomas and Gordon Granger, a corps commander in the army, responded they did not know. Thomas then replied "Once those boys get started, all hell can't stop 'em." After Chattanooga, Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman assumed command of all Union armies in the West and created an army group of the Army of the Cumberland, the Army of the Tennessee, and the Army of the Ohio and marched towards Atlanta. In September Atlanta fell to Sherman's army group. When Confederate General John B. Hood moved north from Atlanta, Sherman chose not to follow him and instead dispatched the Army of the Cumberland and the Army of the Ohio after him. Thomas finally met Hood at the Battle of Nashville and crushed him, thus bringing to an end any significant military actions for the Army of the Cumberland. It participated in the Grand Review in Washington, D.C., before President Andrew Johnson, in At Chickamauga the 94th was commanded by Maj Rue P. Hutchins in the 1st Brigade under Col Benjamin F. Scribner which was part of the 1st Division commanded by Brigader General Absalom Baird which was in the XIV Corps of Major General George Henry Thomas. This command was part of the Army of the Cumberland commanded by Major General William Rosecrans. It is a fascinating side light to discover the politics of command and ego between the command structure in the Union Army. U. S. Grant never liked nor trusted Rosecrans and Rosecrans eventually lost his command. The 1870 Federal Census finds the Samuel Creamer family in Urbana, Champaign Co., Ohio (page 460B). This is just north of Enon in Clark Co. (see 1860 census description above). Samuel's mother is listed in death records in Urbana in 1869 so the move to Urbana probably took place after the Civil War. Listed in the family in 1870 are Samuel G. Creamer (46 - PA) and wife Sarah A. (43 - PA) with children George W. (20 - PA), Mary A. (16 - Ohio), Malisia P. (14 - Ohio), David A. (12 - Ohio), Missouri (10 - Ohio), Charles F. (8 - Ohio), and Matty E. (2 - Ohio). Nearby in Urbana, Ohio (page 472B) is George Creamer (40 - PA), Plasterer, with his wife Sarah J. (28 - PA) and children Clinton D. W. (11), Stephen A. (9), and Elizabeth (7). All the children are listed as born in Illinois. This is probably the brother of Samuel Cr(e)amer. Listed in the 1880 Fed. Census in Urbana (Dist 31, page 435A), in the same household as Samuel G. (57 - Stone Mason) and Sarah (55) Cramer with their children Charles (20) and Mattie (12) on Russell Street, is Mary Cramer (65) and George Cramer (52 - Plasterer) with wife Sarah (38) and children 99

104 Stephen A. (20) and Elizabeth (18). Three pages over (same neighborhood, page 436B) is David (25) and Missouri (20) (Creamer) Kyle [Keil] with daughter Sarah A. (2) also living on Russell Street. David is listed as a Laborer. Not far from these families is another Creamer brother, Henry Creamer, and his family on Louden Street. Samuel G. Cremer files a Civil War Pension Application on June 12, 1889 in Nebraska. It is application # , Certificate # for service with the 94th Ohio Infantry, Company G. Samuel dies on or about August 12, 1893 near Sterretts Gap, PA (see medical notes). Apparently, for his last days, he returned to the area where he was born and raised to visit his daughter, Missouri, and his grand children.

Ohio in the War: Her Statesmen, Her Generals, and Soldiers By Whitelaw Reid In Two Volumes Vol II The history of her Regiments and other Military Organizations Published 1868 Part III From page 6 of the Introductory: Referring to the Union Soldiers from Ohio their bones, reposing on the fields they won, are a perpetually-binding pledge that no flag shall ever wave over these graves of our soldiers but the flag they fought to maintain. "The real heroes of this war are the great, brave, patient, nameless PEOPLE." It is to their service through these varied scenes that we now gladly turn. The Victory was not won through Generalship - it is a libel on the word to say that Generalship delayed for four years the success of 101

106 twenty-five millions over ten millions, or required a million men in the closing campaigns to defeat a hundred thousand - it was won by the sacrifices, the heroism, the sufferings, the death of the men in the ranks. Their story we now seek to tell. It will be less picturesque, less attractive, fuller of dry details, fruitless fighting, tedious marches, labor, and waiting, and weariness. Even such was the life they led for us; and its record, we are firmly persuaded, will never cease to be cherished by their grateful countrymen. [in this space goes a table showing a roster of the officers etc for the 94th Ohio] [begin page 522] Ohio in the War [begin page 523] Page 523 THIS regiment was organized at Camp Piqua, Miami County, Ohio, under the immediate supervision of Colonel J. W. Frizell. The officers were appointed on the 22d of July, 1862, and so vigorously was the recruiting prosecuted that in just one month one thousand and ten men were mustered into the service of the United States. On the 28th of August, without uniforms or camp equipage, and never having been drilled as a regiment, the Ninety-Fourth was ordered to Kentucky, that State being then invaded by Rebel forces under Kirby Smith. It proceeded via Cincinnati, and, upon arriving in that city, was immediately ordered to Lexington, Kentucky. By great perseverance the Colonel succeeded in obtaining three rounds of cartridges to the man; and, being supplied with this very limited amount of -ammunition and sufficient clothing to satisfy immediate wants, the regiment took the cars for Lexington, and arrived at nine P. M. on Saturday night, and heard for the first time an authentic account of the battle of Richmond. After considerable search the Colonel succeeded in finding the officer to whom he was to report, but in such a beastly state of intoxication as to be unable to rise from his bed, and perfectly incompetent to give intelligent instructions. With the assistance of some citizens passable quarters were obtained for the men; and, hungry, tired, and anxious for the morning, the regiment tried bivouacking for the first time. Sunday morning dawned, bright and beautiful, disclosing the town full of stragglers from the Richmond battlefield, relating wild stories of defeat and disaster; and though but little confidence was placed in their reports, still this, together with the general gloom always attending such a state of affairs as then existed, caused the order for the regiment to proceed to Yates's Ford, on the Kentucky River, fifteen miles east of Lexington, on the Richmond Road, to be received with fearful forebodings. However, the order was obeyed without a murmur; and, after a hard day's march under a scorching sun, over a dry and dusty road, with water very scarce, the regiment arrived near the ford just at dark. This being the first march the regiment had made, the men were much exhausted, and dropped to the ground as soon as the order to halt was given. While the Colonel was endeavoring, as best he could in the darkness, to select a position which could be easily defended, a fire was opened upon the regiment by a Rebel scouting party concealed in the thickets skirting the road; and it was afterward ascertained that the whole of Kirby Smith's army was encamped but a couple of miles north of the ford. A veteran regiment could not have behaved better than did the Ninety-Fourth on this occasion. The night was [begin page 524] very dark, the men were lying down, and many had already fallen asleep; but, after the confusion incident to their rude awaking, very little trouble was experienced in getting the regiment properly formed. The Rebel fire lasted but a moment, yet two men were killed and six wounded. After posting his men to the best advantage, Colonel Frizell remained with the advance picketpost (which from the nature of the country was but a short distance from the regiment), during the night; Major King, Captain Drury, and the Adjutant occupying intermediate positions between the Colonel and the regiment. The night passed slowly and without further alarm; and as soon as daylight appeared the hungry men began looking in some wagons that had arrived during the night for the supplies, which the officer in command at Lexington had said he would send. The search revealed one hundred and twenty-five rounds of ammunition to each man and three sacks of green coffee! While endeavoring to make a breakfast from these " supplies," the Rebel army was reported advancing, and soon began shelling the regiment from a battery they had placed in position in the 102

107 woods just across the river. Colonel Frizell watched the Rebel maneuvers for a few moments, and then ordered his Adjutant to form the regiment and march back until past the road, where it was supposed the Rebels would attempt to form and prevent a retreat. The movement was effected in good order, but none too soon, as the rear-guard had just passed the road when the Rebels came trooping from it into the pike and began firing upon Captain Drury's company, which had been selected as rear-guard. Colonel Frizell remained in the rear until the advancing Rebels were checked, when he directed the regiment to a certain point and there to form for action. He knew that his force was greatly outnumbered, but his orders were to " contest every foot of ground back to Lexington." Just as the movement was begun a messenger arrived with an order from General G. C. Smith, dated the night before, for the Ninety-Fourth to return to Lexington with all possible dispatch. The regiment was now twelve miles from any support, with a fresh and victorious enemy (more than ten times superior in numbers) close in the rear; and to successfully conduct a retreat of raw troops under such circumstances required the most thorough ability on the part of the commander and the most undoubted confidence on the part of the men. The regiment toiled along the hot and dusty road, Colonel Frizell, Captain Drury, and other officers fearlessly exposing themselves to prevent straggling; but their utmost efforts could not prevent quite a number of the almost exhausted men from falling by the way-side and becoming an easy prey to the closely pursuing enemy. At four o'clock the regiment reached Lexington, to the great surprise of every person who knew they had been sent out on that expedition. The order sending it to the ford was a blunder; and probably the only thing that prevented its capture was the very boldness of the movements made. Our army that had retreated from Richmond had already left Lexington, still in retreat toward Louisville, and all stores that could not easily be transported had been destroyed. With the exception of coffee and crackers on Sunday morning, the men of the Ninety-Fourth had had but little to eat since Saturday morning, were tired and footsore, and in bad condition for further marching. In the absence of instructions to the contrary, it was Colonel Frizell's intention to remain in Lexington (unless driven out) until his men had procured the much-needed food and rest; but the order for continued retreat reached him and was obeyed. At daylight the retreating army reached Versailles, and a halt for breakfast was ordered; but just as the coffee began to boil another order to "fall in" immediately came from the officer in command. The season was very dry, and but little water could be obtained. The suffering in consequence may be inferred from the fact that the Ohio soldiers gave five dollars for a canteen full of muddy water, a dollar for a drink, and many drank, from standing polls, the water that the horses refused to touch! The roads were almost ankle deep with dust, and the sun shone fiery overhead. The days march began at from two to three o'clock in the morning, and continued till late in the night. The only provisions to be issued (or to be obtained) were a few hard crakers each night, and what green corn yet remained in fields adjacent to camping grounds. The tropps were nearly all newly enlisted, and, being unused to such life, it is not to be won[begin page 525] dered [wondered] at that they fell out of ranks by the hundred, and were so easily captured by the force of Rebels following. Upon arriving at Louisville the Ninety-Fourth went into camp without tents in the woods, but the men were so utterly exhausted that their only want was to rest as best they could. Having been almost entirely deprived of sleep, water, or food for seven days, marching night and day, with feet and limbs swollen almost to bursting, and every sense dulled by suffering, many of the men were pitiable objects. In a short time, however, all had regained comparative strength, health, and cheerfulness, and were ready to go where duty called. The first regular report that the Adjutant could make after arriving at Louisville showed a loss of two hundred and eighteen men! With the exception of the two men killed at Tate's Ford, all eventually rejoined the regiment, having been paroled by the Rebels almost as soon as captured. With the exception of some hard work in the trenches and on fortifications for the defense of Louisville, and a participation in two or three " grand reviews," the regiment had a very easy time until the 1st of October, when the movement began which resulted in the battle of Perryville and the driving of Bragg's Rebel army from Kentucky. 103

108 Previous to the battle of Perryville the Ninety-Fourth had been assigned to Rousseau's division of McCook's corps, and took a prominent part in this engagement, being highly complimented in general orders. The regiment broke camp near Nashville on Christmas day, 1S62, and was in advance of the army marching on Murfreesboro', and during the battle of Stone River was engaged every day from Wednesday until Saturday. The Ninety-Fourth was again in the advance on Tullahoma, participating in the fight at Hoover's Gap in June, 1863; had a skirmish at Dug Gap, and were engaged in the hard-fought battle of Chickamauga. At Lookout Mountain and Mission Ridge the regiment again took a prominent part, participating in the grand charge upon the ridge; was with Sherman on the march to Atlanta, taking part in the battles at Buzzard's Roost, Resaca, Kingston, Pumpkin Vine Creek, Kenesaw Mountain, Chattahoochie River, Peachtree Creek, Atlanta, and Jonesboro'. After pursuing Hood, the NinetyFourth participated in Sherman's grand march to the sea, arriving in Savannah before Christmas. On the 20th of January, 1865, it was again on the march through South and North Carolina; and, after participating in the battle of Bentonville, North Carolina, arrived at Goldsboro' on the 23d of March, The Ninety-Fourth was the first regiment of infantry to enter Raleigh, North Carolina; and soon after the surrender of Johnston marched to Washington, via Richmond and Alexandria; participated in the grand review before the President, General Grant, and others; and was mustered out of the service at Washington on the 6th of June, 1865, with an aggregate of three hundred and thirty-eight men - "all that were left of them-left of" one thousand and ten!

Medical Notes: Written into Samuel G. Cremer's Civil War Veterans pension record is the following description of his disability and cause of death: His June 12, 1889 application from New Helena, Custer Co., Nebraska alleges sun stroke, piles, rheumatism, and catarrh [runny nose]. His July 29, 1892 application for an Invalid Pension from Anselmo, Custer Co., Nebraska claims Disease of respiratory organs, heart, and rectum, and Epithelioma [skin cancer]. The "permanent disability, not due to vicious habits, from catarrh, rheumatism, and effects of sun stroke, piles May 12, 1892 & June 1, 1892 alleges cancer near right eye, disease of heart & rectum, lum [lumbago] leg, & epithelioma of service origin". The "Claimant's Affidavit" of May 6, 1892 as a resident of Anselmo, Custer Co., Nebraska records Samuel's written account of his injuries during the war that contributed to his disabilities: "That in addition to his disabilities alleged in his declaration for original Invalid Pension he desires to claim pension on cancer under right eye contracted at or near Rauly (sic) [Raleigh] North Cariolinia (sic) [Carolina] on or about 15th of April 1865 under the following circumstances: By the tube of my musket Bursting and either the Cap or a piece of the tube struck my right cheek whitch (sic) has caused cancer (Rose).

His August 5, 1892 mailed issue from Des Moines records his disability as "Disease of respiratory organs, heart, and rectum, and Epithelioma [skin cancer]". Samuel continues to get his $12 per month pension. His name was dropped from the pension rolls March 9, 1894 because of "Death about August 12, 1893 near Sterretts Gap, PA rep by P. M. Disease of respiratory organs, heart and rectum, and Epithelioma [skin cancer]". Noted events in his life were: He worked as a Stone Mason / Peddler in his later years due to disabilities incurred during service in the Civil War. Samuel married Sarah A.

Cramer/Creamer was born on 13 Nov 1867 in Ohio, 16 died on 17 Jan 1939 in Portsmouth, Scioto Co., Ohio at age 71, and was buried on 20 Jan 1939 in Greenlawn Cemetery, Portsmouth, Scioto Co., Ohio. The cause of her death was Bronchial Pneumonia Sarah A. Goudy,12 daughter of Samuel Goudy and Anna M. Aker, was born about 1826 in York Co., Pennsylvania16 and died after 1880 in Urbana, Champaign Co., Ohio. General Notes: The 1850 census (see notes on her father) records her name as Goudy, however, the death certificate of her daughter, Missouri, lists her surname as Gowdy. Following census records of parents and siblings indicate the surname to be spelled Goudy. Sarah married Samuel George Cramer/Creamer15 about Joshua Daughtrey, son of Richard Daughtrey II and Apenina (Appenine) (Peninah) Morgan, was born on 6 Apr 1795 in Isle of Wight Co., VA, died on 6 Apr 1868 in Isle of Wight Co., VA at age 73, and was buried in Daughtrey Family Cemetery just inside the Isle of Wight Co. line on Lee's Mill Road coming from the City of Suffolk (old Nansemond Co.). General Notes: The Virginia Census of 1850 uses Daughtry... The Daughtrey family graveyard is located on the south side of Lee's Mill Road in Isle of Wight County, approximately one-half mile from the City of Suffolk (Nansemond County) line. --- SOURCE: Joyce Whitehead A contact with Nita Rawls Watterson in 2004 resulted in a visit to several Daughtrey and Rawls homes in the Holland area. Nita related many family facts and with her guidance we were able to visit the graves of Eli and Julia Anna Daughtrey as well as Joshua and Priscilla. A return visit in July 2007 allowed this researcher to update the status of the Daughtrey grave sites: Eli, Julia Anna, and their son, Elmer, are still across from Eli's home place at 1900 Jenkins Mill Road. Eli's home has been renovated and added to and is for sale. The grave yard is still overgrown with tress, shrubs, and vines but remains intact in the middle of a field several hundred yards off the road across from his home. Joshua, Priscilla, Theophilus, Joseph John, and Lillian are buried in a field near the long gone home of Joshua and Priscilla several hundred yards behind the Norfleet residence at Holy Neck Road (Also called Lees Mill Road or Rte 616). Careful examination revealed the broken headstone of Lillian Daughtrey with the recorded birth and death dates. Another two stones were those of Joseph J. Daughtrey. One was the headstone with birth and death dates and the other an honored remembrance and recognition of his service to his country during Mr. Lincoln's War. I attempted to clear off several other indentations but the areas appeared and felt like large flat pieces of drift wood rather than stone in the sandy soil... perhaps an indication of coffins that were coming to the surface. Joshua Daughtry is listed on the Muster Roll of Captain John Blunt's Company of Virginia Militia, commanded by Lieutenant Francis M. Boykin, in the Service of the State of Virginia from 23d June to 10th July, 1813 and from 28th August to 13th September, in the year His time of service is listed as 17 days. The 1830 Federal Census for Isle of Wight Co., Va. records Joshua Daughtrey (30-40) with family: 2 males (<5) [Joseph John & Theophilus], 1 female (5-10) [Elinor], 1 female (10-15) [?}, and 1 female (2030) [Priscilla].

Joshua has real estae valued at $1,500 and a personal estate valued at $500 (Joshua owned no slaves). W. H. [William Henry Cutchins] has real estae valued at $1,800 and a personal estate valued at $2,000, including 2 slaves ages 16 and 4/12. W. H. will later marry Joshua's daughtrey, Asenith Daughtrey [Aunt Senie to Emily Daughtrey]. Nearby in these census records are Thomas R. (38) and Harriet A. (28) Jenkins with daughter P. A. Jenkins (3). Also in the household is Fanny E. Daughtrey (22). Fanny is Emmeline Daughtrey and Harriet is Harriet Daughtrey, daughters of Joshua's cousin, Mathew Daughtrey (mentioned in Emily's Family History).

General Notes: Randolph owned 202 acres of land 14 miles southwest of Suffolk. The name "Eugene" Randolph Rawls was used in an article about Eli Daughtrey as a Deacon in the Old Hebron Church of Carrsville. He is named as the father of Eli's wife, Julia Anna Rawls. The article was written sometime after 1976 in that it references the death of his daughter, Emily Christine Daughtrey. The 1840 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., Virginia records Randolph Rawls as head of household with: [free white persons] 1 male (20-30), 1 female (30-40) - 1 male slave (24-34) & 1 female slave (10-23). Randolph is listed as Randol Rawls (38) in the 1850 Nansemond Co., Va. census. Also in the household are Christian (28), Thomas J.

Also in the household are black families: David (50) and Mary (35) Copeland with children Sarah (18), Oliver (2), and Jesse (1) as well as Louisa Copelane (22) with Isaac (8), James (4), and Mary (1). Next door is Andrew J. (33) and Elizabeth (36) Rawls. The family has real estate valued at $2,000 and personal property at $4,000. They are reasonably "well off" but certainly not wealthy. The 1860 Slave Schedule lists Randol with 5 slaves: 85-f, 45-f, 13-m, 10-f, 3-f. The 1870 Federal Census for Holy Neck, Nansemond Co., VA, Suffolk P.

Randolph next married Catherine "Kate" Jones about 1876 in Nansemond Co, VA Christine (Christian)(Christene) Parker, daughter of David Parker and Edn(y)(a) Goodman, was born in 1820 in Gates Co, NC,28 died on 19 Jan 1876 in Nansemond Co, VA. at age 56, and was buried in Holy Neck Christian Church Cemetery, Nansemond County. General Notes: Christine's father was David Parker, husband to Edna Goodman. David Parker apparently died soon after Christine was born. Edna later married David Milteer and had several children with him. David Milteer is her step father but is often referred to as her "father". Christian's name as well as that of her sister, Parthenia, appears in the will of her grand father, Kedar Parker. Given names Catherine Rawls and Kate Rawls are listed in the 1870 and 1880 Federal Census records for Nansemond Co., VA as the wife of Randolph Rawls Perhaps the 1870 listing should be Christine instead of Catherine in that she is listed as 49 years old in the 1870 census and Christine's tombstone lists her date of death as 1876 and birth as While the given name in the census record is not consistent (Catherine vs Christine), the age listed there is consistent with the headstone death date with a ca1820 birth date gleaned from the 1850 & 1860 census data.

116 108. William (Henning) Doughtie,29 son of Edward Doughtie and Peggy Langston, was born about 1809 in North Carolina and died about 1877 in Nansemond Co., VA. about age 68. General Notes: William and Nancy Doughtie lived in Gates Co., North Carolina in 1850 and probaly earlier. William is listed as a wheelmaker in the 1850 Federal Census for Gates Co., N.C. (page 25B). It records William (41 - NC) and Nancey (35 - NC) Doughtie with children Henning (14), Ann A. (12), Elnathan (8), James T. (6), Robbin [Bolden] (4), and Joshua (1). The 1840 Federal Census for Gates Co., NC records a Wm Doutee (sic) and family. This is most likely the same family in that the family is listed as 1 male, [William], 1 female [Nancy], 1 male 5-10 [Henning], and 1 female 0-5 [Ann]. 2 white persons >20 who can not read and write. Reviewing census records for Gates Co., NC for the early 1800s leads one to suspect William H. Doughtie's father to be Edward Doughtie, born ca 1785 and died Brothers of William might be Andrew and Doctor Doughtie. Edward's father might be William Doughtie, born ca 1760 and died ca Nathanial Doughtie appears to be an uncle. According to Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia, Special Virginia Edition, Nansemond County Personal Histories, published in 1885, the family moved to Nansemond Co., Va. in February The 1860 Federal Census for the Upper Parish of Nansemond Co., Va. (page 621) records William H. Dowdy (sic) (51), wife Nancy Doughtie (sic) (48) and children Ann Doughtie (21), Nathan Doughtie (17), James Doughtie (16), Boldin Doughtie (13), Joshua Doughtie (11), and William Doughtie (8). William Doughtie is listed as a farmer and all family members are born in N.C. He is reasonably successful in that he has real estate valued at $3,000 and personal property at $400. The 1870 Federal Census for Cypress Chapel, Nansemond Co., Va. (page 212) records William H. (61) and Elizabeth A, (55) Doughty with children Bolden (22) and William (18). Also in this census is Daily (30) and Elizabeth (9) Doughty. This may be the family of William's son, Judson (Nathan), who died in the Civil War. The 1880 Federal Census for Cypress, Nansemond Co., Va. ( page 59D) does not record William or Ann (Nancy) but does record son James T. "Doughus" and family (as indexed by familysearch.org and ancestry.com). Next door is James' brother Hen(n)ing S. "Dondie" his wife and family as well as brother Joshua Doughtie. Living nearby (ED#53, page 66B) is Bolling (sic) R. (34), Cornelia O. (32), Lydia O. (7), Alnona (6), and Anna C. (3) Doughte in the Cyress Magesterial District. Mary Etta Miltiere (16), who marries Bolden after Cornelia dies in 1894, is living with her parents and siblings next door to Bolden, Cornelia, and family. Research Notes: Finding the parents of William Doughtie yields several leads: The 1810 Federal Census for Gates Co., NC records the families of Edward Doughie and William Doughtie. William has 1 male 10-15, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 1 female and 1 female over 45. Edward has 5 males under 10, 1 male 26-44, and 1 female The 1820 Federal Census for Gates Co., NC records the families of Edward Doughtee and William Doughtee. William has 2 males under 10, 1 male 16-26, 1 male over 45, 2 females 10-16, and 2 females Edward has 1 male under 10, 2 males 10-16, 1 male 26-45, 1 female under 10, and 1 female This sets up a possible Edward as the son of William and Edward as the father of our William Doughtie (father of Bolden). Looking to the 1830 census reveals but 2 Doughtie families in Gates Co.: Nathaniel Doughtie and Treacy Doughtie. The Nathaniel Doughtie family has 1 male 5-10, 1 male 16-26, 1 male 30-40, 1 female under 5, and 2 females

117 North Carolina marriage records list Nathaniel Doughtie married to Susan Baker on June 4, 1829 and then Sarah Baker on September 24, The Treacy Doughtie family has 1 female and 1 female Treacy is possibly Edward's widow and mother of William, father of Bolden. Looking to the 1840 census reveals 3 Doughtie families in Gates Co.: Nathaniel Doughtie (indexed as Nathl Dowder at ancestry.com), Doctor Doughtie (indexed as Dowghty at ancestry.com), and William Doughtie (indexed as Wm Doutee at ancestry.com - Bolden's father).

General Notes: The census records below are possibly the family of Willis W. Wiggins: The 1840 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA [image 51 of 82] records a Willis Wiggins (age 2030). He is the only person listed in the household. Next door is Cherry Wiggins (age 50-60) also living by herself. There are 3 people in each household including 2 slaves in each household. 114

119 The 1830 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA [image 17 of 96] records a Cherry Wiggins (age 4050) with 1 female (15-20), 2 males (15-20),and 1 male (10-15). They have 3 slaves: 1 male (36-50) and 2 females (<10). The 1820 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA [image 8 of 23] records a Willis Wiggins (age 26-45) with 1 female (26-45), 1 female (<10), 1 male (10-16),and 2 males (<10). They have 6 slaves: 2 males (<14), 1 male (26-45), 1 female (<14), 1 female (14-26), and 1 female (26-45). See research notes to clarify ancestry... Research Notes: images 53 through 61 of 149 images Willis W. Wiggins is named in an 1882 Nansemond Co. Court proceeding as the father of 2 daughters: Cornelia O., wife of B. R. Doughtie and Ann M., wife of Willis Austin. His father is referred to as Willis Wiggins the elder (died 1827) while his son as Willis W. Wiggins the Younger who has siblings: Wiley, William, and Elizabeth. Elizabeth "intermarried" with Humphrey D. Savage. The land is "313 acres more or less" and is first recorded as boundaries in deeds recorded as early as After the death of his father, Willis the Younger bought the interests in said land from his sister, Elizabeth Savage, duly recorded on July 9, 1838 and from Wiley, duly recorded on April 8, The interests of the brother William Wiggins, were passed to his siblings on the death of the brother, William, in early 1839, without any other heirs. Wiley had moved to Tennessee and I am sure gladly sold his interests in the Nansemond property to his brother. images 53 through 61 of 149 images These 1838 documents name Wiley Wiggins and his wife Rebecca in a land record for Fayette Co., South Carolina. Image 36 continues but this time names the location as Fayette, Tennesse. Image 37 is copy of the deed where Willis Wiggins of Nansemond Co., VA purchases the lands held by Wiley and Rebecca Wiggins who are living in Fayette Co., TN. This property was land owned by Wiley's father, Willis Wiggins (the Elder) and Wiley's share had been passed down. In 1830 in Nansemond Co., VA, Willis Wiggins the younger buys up his siblings inheritance of his father's land... from his brother, Wiley, who is living in Fayette Co., TN, for $150 as well as his sister, Elizabeth, now the wife of Humphrey D. Savage for the sum of $100 (image 42 of 149). See general notes for Willis W. Wiggins for 1830 and 1840 census facts. Willis married Christian Harrell33 circa Children from this marriage were: Ann Melissa Wiggins was born about 1846 in Nansemond Co, VA., died in 1895 in Nansemond Co, VA. about age 49, and was buried in Liberty Springs Christian Church Cemetery, Nansemond Co., VA. 55 i Cornelia Octavia Skinner Wiggins Christian Harrell,33 daughter of John Thomas Harrell and Margaret "Peggy" Savage, was born in 1827 in Nansemond Co, VA., died on 19 Jul 1885 in Nansemond Co, VA. at age 58, and was buried in Liberty Springs Christian Church Cemetery, Nansemond Co., VA. General Notes: Inez Daughtrey Hagen's wedding book indicates her grandmother to be Cornelia Octavia Wiggins Doughtie with Cornelia's mother being "Christian Harrell Wiggins (Skinner) (Doughtie)" married to Willis Wiggins. I supposed that Cornelia's mother's maiden name was Skinner, however, in an April 1973 letter from Octavia Holland to Ethel Daughtrey Ellis, it is related that research from Bobby Jones gathered from Edenton, N.C. and Nansemond Co. Court Houses, indicates Christian Harrell Wiggins is Cornelia O. Wiggins' mother. From research done by Ginny Doughtie Layman "on the way back to my son's in Franklin, we stopped at the Portsmouth Library to check out some Nansemond County death records someone had copied at the VA State Library" sent to me via Sept 4, 2004: Doughtie, Christian; white; female; Died July 17, 1885; Died Nansemond Co.; Cause of death Billious Colic; Age 64 Yrs.; Parents Margaret and Riddick Harrell; Born Nansemond Co.; Consort 115

120 of James T. Doughtie; Name of person giving information B.R. Doughtie; Designation of informant son in law. (Note... bilious colic: bilious pertains to an ailment of the bile or liver resulting in headache, indigestion, nausea, etc. supposed to be caused by an abnormal liver-- likely gall bladder disease or stones) Also included in the C.O. [Cornelia Octavia] Doughtie; white; female; Died Feb 10, 1894 in Nansemond Co.; Cause of death unknown; Age 47 Yrs.; Parents Willis & Ann Skinner; Born Nansemond Co.; Occupation Housekeeper; Consort of B.R. Doughtie; Name of person giving information B.R. Doughtie; Designation of informant husband.... The above "Doughtie, Christian... Consort of James T. Doughtie" is either a transcription error, dictation error, or lapse by the giver in that various other records document James T. Doughtie, brother of Bolden R. Doughtie, married Caroline Daughtrey Gardner... while John Doughtie, of Gates Co., NC, definitely married, or was the consort of, Christian Skinner. The above record "C.O. [Cornelia Octavia] Doughtie... Parents Willis & Ann Skinner" is most likely a similar error explained by Willis [Wiggins] as the father who died when Cornelia was very young and Ann is a diminutive of Christian. The "Pierce" surname recorded in the 1850 census shown below is still an unexplained conundrum. Census records pose an interesting senario. The Federal Census for 1850, Nansemond Co., VA, page 193B, dated November 4, 1850 indicates a household of William H. Skinner (23 - Nansemond Co., Va.) and Christian Skinner (25 - Nansemond Co., Va.) with children Ann S. Pierce (5 - Nansemond Co., Va.) and Cornelia Pierce (3 - Nansemond Co., Va.). Also in the household are Sarah Baker (30 - Nansemond Co., Va.), John Dunford (60 - Nansemond Co., Va.), and Charlotte Dunford (52 - Nansemond Co., Va.). William and Christian could be brother and sister or husband and wife... but what about the Pierce children? By looking at the 1860 census records (see below) for Nansemond Co., you can conclude that these are actually Cornelia and Ann Wiggins, but the Pierce name is unexplained at this time. Christian obviously marries John Doughtie around 1858 and appears to have had a child by William Skinner: Garie O. (Ophelia) Skinner (see 1860 census records below). The Virginia Census for 1860, Nansemond Co. Page 639, indicates a household of John H. Doughtie (age 27, born in N.C.), Christian Doughtie (38), Ann M. Wiggins (14), and Cornelia Wiggins (12), Garie O. Skinner (7), and Clotilda Baker (54). The slave census schedule of 1860 indicates that John owns 4 slaves, although he is not particularly wealthy with real estate valued at just $1,200 and personal proerty at $1,300. The 1860 Slave Schedule records John A. Doughtie with 4 slaves: (F-24, M-10, F-4, and F-1). It should be noted that the 1850 Federal Census for Gates Co., N.C. page 27B, dated August 28, 1850 records John Doughtie (18 - N.C.) living in the home of Blake Baker Jr [Blake Baker (37 - NC) and his wife Mary I. Baker (21 - NC) and children James T. Baker (6) - NC), Almidia Baker (4 - NC), and Robert W. Baker (2 - NC). Also in the household is Missouri Umfleet (13)]. Next door is Blake Baker Sr (77 NC) with others, and a few pages over (29B) is Clotilda Baker (45 - N.C.) who appears in the 1860 census living with John and Christian Doughtie. Nearby are sisters Cornelia (6 - N.C.) and Ann R. (4 N.C.) Wiggins. While these sisters are good candidates for Christian's daughters, they can be followed in the 1860, 1870, and 1880 census records for Gates Co. and are thus not Christian's daughters living in Nansemond Co, Va. The appearance of Garie O. Skinner in the 1860 census record indicates that Christian was married to William Skinner and had a daughter by him. This is why Inez's wedding book lists Cornelia's mother as Christian Harrell Wiggins Skinner Doughtie with Skinner and Doughtie in "( )". The John Doughtie and Clotilda Baker of the 1850 Gates Co., N.C. Census appear with Christian [Skinner] Doughtie in the 1860 census of Nansemond Co., Va. The 1850 census listing (above) for Ann and Cornelia Pierce remains a mystery. Perhaps Christian was really a Pierce and had two children by Willis Wiggins. See research notes on her husband, Willis Wiggins the younger... The Virginia Census for 1870, Cypress Chapel, Nansemond Co. Page 210B, indicates a household of Christian Doughtie (48), Ann M. Wiggins (22), Cornelia O. Wiggins (20), Garafelia Skinner (18), and Clotilda Baker (60). Civil War records reveal John H. Doughtie served the Confederacy but was killed during the war. Also in the 1870 Census, a few pages over from Christian Doughtie and family (page 116

121 212B), is Margaret Byrd (67) living with William F. Miltier, wife Mary A. (36) and children William L. (15), Josephine (14), Francis P. (11), Martha E. (7), Mary E. (5), Beulah B. (3), not named (8/12). This Margarett Byrd is also living with the William F. Miltier family in I suspect this Margaret Byrd is Christian's mother (Cornelia's Grandmother - Peggy Savage Harrell Byrd) because family stories always stated "Mary Etta and Cornelia were first cousins". Inez Daughtrey Hagen related that "We called her Cousin Ett" referring to B.R. Doughtie's 2nd wife, Etta Miltier. According to Inez, Etta's grand mother was Margaret Harrell Savage, married to a Dempsy Byrd. It is of interest that in the 1870 Federal Census, Bolden Doughty (sic), future husband of Cornelia Wiggins and then Mary Etta Miltier, is listed in his parent's home, one page over from William F. Miltier and family, including Mary Etta, in the Cyress Chapel District of Nansemond Co., Va.

The deed states that Christian Doughtie had a right of dowery (essentially, a wife's portion of the estate) in the estate of Willis W. Wiggins, and that Ann Melissa Wiggins was one of the legal heirs of the estate. They sold their portion to "Borland R. Doughtie." Deed Book 4, p (Dec. 4, 1875) This was a deed basically clearing up the title to a piece of land owned by Christian Doughtie, and notes she was formerly Christian Skinner. The way it is written the deed is being conveyed by Edwin Smith, as the commissioner of the estate of William Henry Skinner. It states that Smith had been appointed in 1855 (so that's presumably when Skinner passed), and that Christian bought the land from the estate, but that due to the court fire in 1866, the title was unclear. This deed cleared that up. Deed Book 8, p (Sept. 17, 1880) This is a gift of land from Christian Doughtie to Cornelia Octavia Doughtie and Garrie Ophelia Norfleet. This seems to prove my theory in the previous that Garrie Ophelia married a Norfleet, and that the tomsbtone transcription from the website had incorrectly listed Christian as a Norfleet in the Liberty Springs records.

122 Date: April 1, 2009 I finally had a chance yesterday to get out to both Liberty Springs and to the court house again. At Liberty Springs, my assumptions were confirmed as to the grave of Christian Harrell. She is there within the Norfleet lot, and shares a common stone with John E. Norfleet, Garrie Ophelia, their children, and John Norfleet's parents. I am attaching some pictures of the site, and you will see on the same side of the stone with "Christian Doughtie" is also "Rachael Norfleet" (John's mother). The stone is covered with moss, and needs a good cleaning (another project), so it's a little hard to read. At the court house, I furthered my research and uncovered the following: 1. Marriage license of John E. Norfleet and Garriophelia Skinner, married on November 17, This lists her parents as William H. Skinner and Christian, his wife. 2. Marriage license of Willis H. Austin and Ann M. Wiggins, married on November 2, This lists her parents as Willis Wiggins and Christian, his wife. 3. Finally, here's the real gem: Nansemond County Deed Book 5, page 477. This is a deed made August 3, 1876, between Christian Doughtie and Willis Henry Austin. The gist of the deed is that Willis Austin will provide board, medical care, clothing, etc. to Christian Doughtie, and in exchange, Christian is deeding him 220 acres within the Cypress District. Also, at the time of Christian's death, Willis is to pay daughters Cornelia Doughtie and Garreophelia Norfleet in the amount of $130. The deed also notes that Cornelia is the daughter of Christian's first husband, Willis W. Wiggins, and notes that Christian has been married three times. So, between the marriage records and deed, I think we are a little closer to sorting out all of the issues between parents, multiple names, etc. One thing I will note on this deed, for whatever reason, they canceled it several months later (Deed Book 5, p. 502), and the property was reconveyed to Christian. I had hoped to make a copy all of this, but it's in the bound deed books and they will not let you xerox these. What I may end up doing is taking my laptop over there one day and transcribing these records. They're just way too lengthy to hand write, and full of useless legalese, so that's why I just copied down the important parts. -Fred Fred D. Taylor 2700 N.

(Dropsy is an old term for the swelling of soft tissues due to the accumulation of excess water... edema/swelling due to kidney failure or congestive heart failure) Jackson Adkins was most probably named Andrew Jackson Adkins. Jackson and Elizabeth Adkins Jackson and Elizabeth were first cousins. Their fathers, Owen and Henry, were brothers. The original picture is part of the collection of Desmond Kendrick, Archivist of Henry, Pittyslvania, and Franklin Counties. (Cir 1860) The 1850 Federal Census for the Northern District, Pittsylvania Co., VA, page 232B records Jackson Adkins (31) with wife Elizabeth (25) and children Elizabeth (12), Green (10), Polly (8), Lewis (5), and Isabel (2). Next door is his cousin Agnes [Adkins] Gibson and her husband Henry and their children. The 1860 Federal Census for the North District, Pittsylvania Co., VA. Museville P.

General Notes: An Elizabeth Adkins applied for a pension in 1888 as a widow of a Confederate Veteran. On the pension application Elizabeth notes that her husband, Jackson, served in Co. C, 5th Res(erves) (Vol 15, page 448, Muster rolls, VSLA) and died March 14, 1864 "at home on furlough from dropsy contracted in the Army". The July 10, 1860 Census lists Jackson (45), Elizabeth (38), Elizabeth (19), Green B (17), Polly W. (15), Lewis (13), Isabella (12), Salina (10), Enox (10), Agnus (8), John (6), Lucy (6), and Henry (1). It should be pointed out that Jackson's mother (which is also Elizabeth's Aunt) was named Isabel. The 1880 Federal Census Callands, Pittyslvania Co., VA, District 164 (indexed incorrectly as District 163 at ancestry.com), page 46B (page 2) lists Elithebeth [Elizabeth] Adkinds (57) with children Isabeller (29), Salina (27), Aggie (25), Henry (19), and Anny [Nanny] (18). Viewing of the actual image, recorded by R. W. Cabell on June 1, 1880, seems to confirm the unusal spellings created by Mr. Cabell (with the exception of Salinia). This spelling of Adkinds continues throughout the Callands District recorded by Mr. Cabell. The "Anny (Nanny)" as described above may be a daughter-in-law and not a daughter

125 see notes on son Henry for 1900 and 1910 census facts. The 1900 Federal Census for Pittsylvania Co., Va. (ED#71, Sheet 1, page 224A) records Elizabeth Adkins (June 1923) with daughter Isabel (Dec 1840), son Henry (May 1864), and daughter-in-law Nannie B. Adkins (June 1866) and grandsons Letcher W. (Apr 1891) and Walter K. (July 1897). It is uncertain whether or not this Nannie B. Adkins is an unmarried daughter of Elizabeth or is married to Elizabeth's son, Henry (although the census records "daughter-in-law"). This census indicates Elizabeth has had 14 children of which 10 are still living and that Nannie B. and Henry have been married 10 years with 2 children, however, lines are drawn through the 10s. The marrital status for Henry and Nannie is written as "M" [married] for both but erased for Nannie and "S" is written in. This researcher's best guess is that this "daughter-in-law", Nannie B. Adkins, is not the daughter of Jackson and Elizabeth because the 1930 obituary for Jackson and Elizabeth's son, Green Berry Adkins, reports that Green Berry is survuived by his sister, Mrs. Thomas Adkins... and that the 1910 census records a recently married Thomas B. and Nannie B. Adkins living near by another Nannie B. Adkins (with sons Letcher and Walter).

Oddly enough, Henry's home is still standing, partially. It is a short distance from Samuel's homesite. Henry and Gilley are buried above their home in a pasture. They have no tombstones. However, Samuel and Rebecca do have tombstones and are buried at their homesite.... I am not related to Samuel and Rebecca Lawrence, but feel a lot of respect for them.

Clarissa married Jarrett Bolyn (Bouldin/Bolden) Garrett on 13 Nov 1834 in Rockingham Co, NC George A. Coleman, son of Unknown and Unknown, was born about 1836 in Virginia and died on 26 Jun 1864 in Point Lookout Prison, Maryland about age 28. The cause of his death was Typhoid Fever at point Look Out Prison. General Notes: According to family stories, the last letter Fannie received from her husband, George, was just before the Battle of Gettysburg. According to the story, George Coleman was killed during The Battle of Gettysburg. Upon learning the fate of her husband, Fannie sent her two younger 126

131 children to Berry Hill Store. After cleaning house, she fed the stock and tied a gun to an apple tree 15 feet from the chimney and shot herself. Her children were raised by her brother, Jimmy Haygood.... This family story has some semblance of truth but is somewhat suspect. According the Confederate Army records, it appears that George did not go into service until Feb True, George did die in the Civil War, but Fannie is listed with her children living at her father's home (James or Jimmy) in the 1870 census. My research shows a George Coleman in the 45th North Carolina Infantry who enlisted in to Company K on February 1, 1864, transferred to Company G in March 1864, and was wounded and captured at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House on May 10, The 45th North Carolina was formed out of Rockingham County, N.C. which is the most likely Regiment in which George would have served. This George Coleman was taken to Point Lookout Prison in Maryland on May 18, 1864 where he died June 26, 1864 of Typhoid Fever. This information is a written record taken from Selected Records of the War Department Relating to Confederate Prisoners of War, , Roll of Prisoners of War at Point Lookout, MD. I do not know if this is the George Coleman married to Fanny Haygood but it is a good possibility that warrants further research. It is a fact that the 1880 Federal Census for Oregonville, Rockingham County, North Carolina shows a Caledonia Haygood (grand daughter-18) living with a James Haygood (73) family. This is our Callie Coleman, soon to be wife of Joseph Walton Garrett. In the 1870 Rockingham Co., NC census there is the following family: James Hagwood (65), Nancy (59), Thomas B. (20), John H. (18), Emma C. (15), and SARAH F. Coleman (32), Edgar J. Coleman (11), Nannie E. Coleman (10), CALEDONIA Coleman (8), George A. Coleman (6). This is clearly our Fannie Hagood Coleman who is now without a husband. This clearly establishes that Fannie was alive in 1870 and places much doubt in the family story that she killed herself after hearing of her husband's death (ca 1864). The part of the story that relates Callie being raised by her Uncle Jimmie is also suspect. The Uncle Jimmie is actually "Grandfather Jimmie" (James Hagood) as shown in the 1870 census. See general notes on George's wife, Sarah "Fannie" Hagood, for 1850 census records on George Coleman. George married Sarah F. (Fannie) Hagood on 9 Jan 1858 in Caswell Co., N.C.

132 123. Sarah F. (Fannie) Hagood, daughter of James Hagood and Nancy M. Hodges, was born about 1837 in Caswell Co., N.C. and died circa 1872 in Rockingham Co., N.C. about age 35. General Notes: See general notes on husband, George Coleman. The 1850 Federal Census for Caswell Co., North Carolina lists a James Hagwood family with a daughter Sarah Hagwood (13). A few homes away is a George Coleman (14 - Virginia). This family is not recorded in the 1860 Caswell Co. census, however, a James Hagood family is found in Rockingham Co., N.C. in the 1860 census. In both census records, both families have a daughter named Julia and a son named William (correct relative ages) with the father, James, born in Virginia. Daughter Sarah Haygood is not with this family in 1860 in Rockingham Co. I have found no 1860 census records for George and Fannie Coleman in either Caswell or Rockingham; however, I have found a marriage bond for Sarah F. Hagewood to George A. Coleman from Caswell Co. dated Jan. 9, The 1850 Federal Census for Caswell Co., North Carolina, page 262B, dated December 21, 1850 records James (44 - VA) and Nancy (30 - VA) Hagwood with children Sarah (13 - Caswell), Mary E. (10 Caswell), Ann E. (8 - Caswell), Julia C. (6 - Caswell), William T. (4 - Caswell), and Thelma B. (1 Caswell). Next door is Nancy Hagood (38 - VA) and John Hagood (41 - VA). John is a stone mason and James is a farmer. Also in the household of Nancy and John Hagood is Sarah B. Irby (39 - VA). John, Nancy, and James are siblings. Their father, Burwell Hagood, was married to Sally Irby and thus the 39 year old Sarah B. Irby living with John and Mary is not a mere coincidence and is most likely a relative. Nearby is Sarah F. Hagood's future husband, George Coleman (14 - VA) living with Martha Robertson (60 - VA) and her family Elizabeth Robertson (39), Robert Robertson (23 - Caswell), Cloe Robertson (25 - Caswell), and Thompson Robertson (21 - Caswell). Also in this household is Phebe Ann Philips (11 Caswell). Next door to the Robertson family is Daniel S. Coleman (65 - VA) and his family: daughter Ann S. Coleman (23 - Caswell), and sons Spillsby (22 - Caswell), and Bartlett J. Robertson (21 Caswell). Daniel is most likely not George's father since Daniel's children are born in Caswell and George Coleman is born in Virginia. On the previous census page living near by the Hagood families is a George J. Coleman (28 - Caswell) with his wife Sarah W. [Swan... see research notes on Sarah F. Hagood] (22 - Caswell) and children John W. (2 - Caswell) and Susan A. V. (1/12 - Caswell). This George is a Tailor and since he was born in Caswell is probably Daniel's son... perhaps Daniel is an Uncle to our George. Another interesting connection is that Daniel S. Coleman was married to a Nancy Robertson on September 3, 1809 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. In the 1870 Rockingham Co. census there is the following family: James Hagwood (65), Nancy (59), Thomas B. (20), John H. (18), Emma C. (15), and SARAH F. Coleman (32), Edgar J. Coleman (11), Nannie E. Coleman (10), CALEDONIA Coleman (8), George A. Coleman (6). I have concluded that this is the proper family for our Fannie Hagood and I guess at some point Hagwood became Hagood or Haygood or vice versa. I have also found a marriage bond for Nancy M. Hodges and James Hagwood in Caswell Co. dated Nov. 23, Since Sarah (Fannie) was born in 1837 (to parents James and Nancy as of the 1850 census) it appears that these are Fannie's parents. The 1840 Federal Census for Caswell Co., N.C. lists a Burwell Hagood next door to a James Hagood. Burwell is James' father. Burwell Hagood has a will recorded at the Caswell Co. Court House dated 1848 (Book Q, , page 87) that names James as an heir in his estate. Research Notes: The George J. Coleman below is likely a son of Daniel and Nancy Coleman... see general notes regarding the 1950 census. North Carolina Marriage Collection, Name: George J. Coleman Spouse: Sarah W.

It was clearly identified in her own handwriting, so I copied her print [current digital copy] instead of Dad's. The following excerpts are also from Aunt Annie's collection. Her sister, Mary Blanche Blackwell Smith [Memama's oldest sister], wrote a 52-page autobiography for her own children entitled "Reminiscences" [no date]. She wrote a charming account of the Blackwell family who lived in Townsville, Vance County, North Carolina "I was born near Townsville, Granville County (now Vance). This important event took place at the home of my Grandfather, John Pomphrette Blackwell, who married Mary Ann Amy Webb of Person county, North Carolina. Yes, I was born the 17th day of April "My Grandfather Blackwell had a large farm of 2000 acres between Big Island and Little Island Creeks and as his children married off (Maurice, Nannie, Pomphrette, Rob and Addie) he gave them a part of his farm. "He gave my father, John Pomphrette Blackwell, Jr., 383 acres of land through which Little Island Creek passed on the East. On this land my father cleared the land and built a little two-room log cabin between two hills, and my mother named it 'Valley Home'. She took me from my Grandmother's to this new home when I was about three months old and named me Mary Blanche -- Mary for my Grandmother Blackwell, and Blanche for my father's cousin Blanche Webb, daughter of Great Uncle Robert Webb of Nashville, Tenn., who was a Commission Merchant for many years in that city. "The Civil War had left my father's and mother's people nearly destitute. My Grandfather had 75 slaves, or about that number, and when they were given their freedom most of them refused to leave my Grandfather, and that made it hard for him for food and clothing was scarce and neither white nor black had enough to eat. "My Grandfather B[lackwell] gave my father the [one-horse] wagon and an old-fashioned buggy built up so high that we had to climb on chair to get in and it was very wide, possibly wide enough to seat five children. We used this buggy for special occasions to bring the Presiding Elder or Preacher home with us to spend the night or the week-end. My people were Methodists (Episcopal) and belonged to Marrow's Chapel, Granville, County, NC. They are all buried there. "My Grandmother Mary Ann Amy Webb, daughter of James Webb of Mt. Tirzah, Person County, NC, was a most remarkable woman. She was thoroughly business, and looked after the large farm during the Civil War and afterwards until her death. Grandpa Blackwell was a cripple from rheumatism -- so much that he could not walk for thirty years but slided [sic] around in an old arm chair, the bottom of which was made from old hickory splits and it was what they called a split bottomed chair. He always carried his Bible around in the arm of that old chair and he read it every day for two or three hours. Grandma called him 'Mar's Johnnie' (like the slaves did) and he called her Mary Ann. The Civil War left my 130

135 Grandparents with practically nothing. "My Grandfather B[lackwell] turned all of his gold into the Treasury at Richmond and took Confederate money. Of course every thing practically was lost and the struggle in his latter years was a hard one. "Grandma was buried at Marrow's Chapel, NC, and Grandpa lived with us during his latter days. He died in our home (Valley Home) and we laid him to rest by the side of Grandmother. "My dear Grandfather Blackwell, who lived with us at this time [1890] died. He was 81 years old and read his Bible without his glasses until the week of his death. He was a wonderful, patient, Christian man and we children idolized him. We pushed him around in his arm chair and we loved to do it. He was easily excited... but if he hurt anyone it was farthest from his heart and he always begged their pardon. We buried him at Marrow's Chapel by Grandma, and Mr. Flerman the Methodist Minister preached his funeral." Mary Blanche Blackwell Smith [4.1943] [From Joan Garrett Bagley's files: "One story handed down in the family concerns John's granddaughter, Mattie Sue Blackwell. Being the youngest in the family, she was often spoiled by her grandfather. He had a habit of carrying sugared biscuits for Mattie Sue; when she was hungry and wanted a snack, he would break off a piece and give it to her. Mattie Sue was three years old when he died. Family members found a sugared biscuit in his pocket."] John married Mary Ann Amy Webb on 12 Sep 1837 in Vance Co., NC.43 Children from this marriage were: James W.

Wortham (57) and sons Ben Wortham (24) and Otho P. Wortham (17). The Bondsman at the wedding of Richard and Ann was Mordecai Huff. Ann's father, Isaac, married Molly Munk Huff before he married Ann's mother, Nancy Vaughn. Mordecai was either a stepuncle or a cousin from that marriage. Richard's farm in Warren County was near the town of Brookston. In the 1850 census he was listed in Henderson District, Granville County (now Vance Co.). He was 32, living with wife Ann B., age 29, and children Oscar, age 3, and Adolphus, four months old. The following was taken from an extensive newspaper piece found in the Blackwell Bible, owned by A. Earl Garrett of Danville, Virginia. (As of Nov 2008, the Garrett Bible and the original obituary is in the possession of Clara Garrett Fountain of Danville, Va.): In Memoriam Richard Jordan Wortham I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth And though after my skin, worms destroy this body, Yet in my flesh I shall see God; Whom I shall see for myself, and Mine eyes shall behold, and not another. On May the 7th, 1889, Vance County lost one of her best and most respected citizens in the death of Richard Jordan Wortham. He was born on the 17th October, 1817 and was consequently at the time of his death, more than 71 years of age. He left four children to mourn his loss--three sons and one daughter, A.R. Wortham, our esteemed and worthy fellow townsman, Benjamin and Perry, and Mrs. Sallie G. Blackwell of Townesville, together with many warm friends, some of whom have loved and respected him for a half and others for nearly three quarters of a century. It is natural that those who loved him should lament his loss, but has not the cloud a silver lining? It is not a grand and beautiful sight, to see the aged patriarch, crowned with the jewels of a well spent life, having served his day and generation, having lived out his three score years and ten, retiring from the affairs of this transitory life, in Peace and Hope of a glorious reunion with those whom he has marshaled in the way of Eternal life by precept and example? He had been a great sufferer for a long time prior to his death, but had borne all his sufferings with patience and resignation. When asked if he were not afraid to die, he replied: "I do not think there lives any sane man or woman who does not dread the narrow grave, the weight of earth pressing upon the poor body, dissolution with its awful accompaniments, annihilation of this earthly tabernacle, the rolling on of the ceaseless centuries and never again to see the bright sun, the sparkling waters, the green grass, the many-hued flowers, God's smiles on earth which seem too sweet and beautiful for this cold, cruel, cunning world, never again to see the face of loved ones here, or to hear their sweet and happy voices; but as to fearing the Beyond, the other side of the Tomb, I answer, No. I believe the grand words of promise-'death is the crown of Life, Were death denied, poor man would live in vain; 133

138 Were death denied, to live would not be life; Were death denied, even fools would wish to die; Death wounds to cure, we fall, we rise, we reign, Spring from our fetters, fasten in the skies Where blooming Eden withers in our sight; Death gives us more than was in Eden lost, The King of Terrors is the King of Peace.'" For many years he was a gentleman of ample means and whilst Hospitality always sat at his board, Charity, sweet Charity, ever showed her devine face at his door. He was a gentleman of the "Old School" and never forgot the refinements and courtesies of life, nor the injunctions of the "Sermon on the Mount," in the modern mad chase after the Yellow God -Gold. During his life he occupied many positions of honor and trust and discharged them all with credit to himself and satisfaction to the public. By his request, W.R. Tunstall and Capt. A.L. Steed performed the duties of clergymen at his funeral, both being his schoolmates and in whose purity as Christians he had utmost confidence. Mr. Tunstall in tones of deepest feeling referred to the high character of the deceased and said he had never known him to utter a word that could not have been used in the presence of the purest woman in the land. He was not a member of any church, but was nevertheless a Christian. He was one of those who believes that a good, pure, honest, chartitable man, though outside the church, will not be condemned by a Just God and a Loving Savior, to suffer an Eternal Agony in an Eternal Hell. He now sleeps in a beautiful grove, whose giant forms have stood as silent sentinels over the graves of his ancestors for more than a hundred years. O God we thank thee for this calm That cometh to us all; The long sweet silence and the sleep, That on the weary fall That cometh when the toiling hands Lie folded on the breast, When griefs depart, and this is said A tired heart, "at rest." The author of this memoriam was A.R.W. (son Adolphus). [The actual memoriam has H. R. W. as the author] Another such Obituary: DEATH OF Mr. Richard J. Wortham - Mr. Richard J. Wortham, an aged and estimable gentleman, died at his home in this county on the 7th inst., after a long sickness, in the 72nd year of his age. He was a good citizen, an honest man, and a warm and honest friend. In another column a more capable writer has paid a fitting tribute to the worth and character of the deceased. Mr. Wortham was the father of our townsman Mr. A. R. Wortham [son, Adolphus Richard Wortham], and a strong filial [noting or having the relation of a child to a parent] affection always existed between them. He leaves three other children, two sons and a daughter, besides a large circle of acquaintances to 134

General Notes: The following was taken from a newspaper obituary found in the Blackwell Bible, owned by A. Earl Garrett of Danville, Virginia. (As of Nov 2008, the Garrett Bible and the original obituary is in the possession of Clara Garrett Fountain of Danville, VA): Died On Saturday, January 29, 1881, near Brookston in Warren Co., NC [currently Vance Co., NC] Ann B. Wortham, wife of Richard J. Wortham Esq and daughter of the late Isaac Britt of Lawrenceville [VA] in the 61 year of her age. The deceased was a lady of more than ordinary refinement and culture and of strong powers of mind, and one distinguishing trait of Ann Rebecca Britt Wortham her character was her universal and unvarying kindness and charity to Granville Co., NC (Cir 1870) all. She never turned a deaf ear to the tale of distress. Her illness was long and painful and borne with uncomplaining resignation. Her son, A. R. Wortham Esq was summoned on Sunday last to attend her funeral obsequies [funeral rites or ceremonies]. For though her recovery was not hoped for, her speedy death was not anticipated. She leaves behind three children besides Mr. W. Another such Obituary: Mrs. Ann Rebecca Wortham, wife of Richard J. Wortham, Esq., of Warren co., NC and the sister of the gallant Col. I. T. Britt, of Virginia, died at the residence of her husband, January 29, 1881, in the 135

140 51st year of her age. The deceased was faithful in all the relations of life in which she was placed. As a wife she was affectionate and true; as a mother, tender and kind; as a neighbor, obliging, and as a friend constant. Honest in her convictions and positive in her character, she spake candidly and acted firmly in the discharge of all the duties of life. There was blended in her character a rare exactness of nerve and womanly propriety. In personal appearance she was comely, with an unassumed dignity of bearing; yet graceful and easy in her manners. In youth and early womanhood, it is said possessed great personal beauty and was much admired for her many accomplishments. Mrs. Wortham, in many particulars, was in advance of the age in which she lived; many of her expressed thoughts will be the better understood and appreciated as learning becomes more general and accurate, and the sciences more fully developed. She was, indeed, a woman of more than ordinary attainments; she kept fully abreast of the literature of the day, and was especially well versed in the political history of the world. She improved well the advances afforded in a quiet country home for reading, meditation, and solid attainments. In the days of her health she had, intellectually, no superior and scarcely an equal in the community in which she lived. Her last illness was long and painful, and death came doubtless as a Providential mercy to release her from her sufferings. In compliance with a request from the deceased, there was no funeral sermon preached on the occasion of her death, but Dr. C. T. Simms, of Warrenton, her friend from childhood, read the "Burial Service", and delivered a short oration at the grave, giving an outline of the history of her life. We are informed the Doctor had stated that he had known the deceased since he was a child, and that she was a descendant of one of the best families in Virginia, spoke in feeling terms of her kindness of heart, her attentions to the sick and poor, and stated that the deceased had told him many times that she was prepared to meet her God. Mrs. Wortham leaves a husband and four children, with a large circle of relatives and friends, to morn her loss. Her children are all residents of this state, to wit: Adolphus R. Wortham, Esq., Attorney at Law, Oxford, NC, Mrs. Sallie Blackwell of Granville county, and Benjamin and Perry of Warren county. To the bereaved family we tender our warmest sympathy and sincerest condolences, and express the hope that we may all meet again the noble woman over whom they weep in the land of eternal light and glory.

Another such Obituary: Died in Warren county on the 29th ultimo, of spinal disease, Mrs. Ann Rbecca, wife of Richard Wortham, Esq., in her 59th year of her age. The subject of this notice was the daughter of Isac Britt, a prominent planter of Brunswick, Va, and was a lady of much intelligence and refinement, and in her younger days possessed great personal beauty. But unlike mere physical charms, which fade with the advancing step of Time - the beauties of her head and heart ripened and expaned with each succeeding year, and although she had been an invalid for several years, her mind had been so well cultivated and her heart so well stored with hope, faith, chairty, patience, and christian fortitude, that her last days were spent so serenly that she seemed to enjoy the society of her husband, children, and friends as much as she did life when standing before the Altar with the partner of her choice, she 136

141 assumed those sacred vows she ever afterwards so faithfully kept as wife, mother, and friend. And while her death inflicted an irreparable loss upon her devoted husband and four children - for who can fill the place of wife and mother, two of the sweetest names known to our language, her neighbors will greatly miss her - for she never passed unheeded the appeals of charity, nor failed to give wise and motherly counsel when asked by her friends and neighbors. But tho' dead to the world - she still liveth. tho' her body has been committed to the earth, we have the consolation of firmly believing that her soul is with her God who gave it. This estimable lady leaves a memory that will ever be cherished in the hearts of her husband, children, and friends. Truely can it be said, "she lived the life of the just and died the death of the righteous." What tombstone ever bore a more glorious epitaph. Anne married Richard Jordan Wortham on 5 Apr 1844 in Brunswick Co., VA. 137

Levi Hagen,1 son of George Hagen and Barbara, was born about 1828 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA and died about 1887 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA. about age 59. General Notes: Our Hagen surname has many forms. Our direct line has appeared as Heagan/Higgins/Hagan/ Haggan/Hagen/Hagens and many others. One of the most interesting variations of the name is found in the 1860 Federal Census, Illinois, Calhoun Co., Richwood: Hawgand (not our direct line). In later census records that same family is Hagen. The families in that census (first names of Gerhart, written here as Fayette, and Barnhart) are from Hanover (Germany) and had just immigrated to this country. I feel sure the census taker was just recording what he heard in a heavy German accent as the last name for the family. Hagen Family in Lancaster, PA Likely L to R: Levi, Edwin II, William Grant, and Edwin I. From the collection of Marlena Mooring and she writes: "These men and boys are probably Hagens [in that they are from a box of photos from the Hagen family]. My brother Jim resembles the boy on the left. I wish I knew who they were." After comparing pictures of Edwin I, II, and William Grant, this researcher believes the picture is of Levi Hagen on the left with his son Edwin on the right. Behind Edwin is Levi's son William Grant and between William and Levi is Edwin II, son of Edwin I. (Cir 1882) Now for our Hagen family of Lancaster, PA: Edwin W. Hagen's father, Levi, is clearly documented on Edwin's death certificate. Going back to the 1860 census, one can find Levi with his son Edwin listed in Phoenixville, Chester Co., Pa. Moving back to the 1850 census, one can find Levi, son of the widow Barbara Haggan (sic) living in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA. A May 1866 U.S. IRS Tax Assessment Lists for Pennsylvania, District 9 ( records Levi Hagen on Mulberry Street with income over $ He was taxed $2.65. An 1883 History of Lancaster Co. provides details of the Hagen family (of Hagen Axe fame) in Martic Township of Lancaster Co. Early 1800s census records establish John Hagen, Forgeman/Axe Maker, as a part of Martic Township in Lancaster Co. and Church records indicate Martha as his wife and George as his son. This record is transcribered as John, Martha, and George Higgin but is clearly that of our Hagen ancestors. By 1830, there is no listing of John Hagen, however, George is listed on his own in Martic living next to his widowed mother Martha Hagan. Estate records indicate John dies in By 1830, George and his brother, Joshua, are listed in census records and by 1850 Martha is living with Joshua while George is no longer listed in the Martic Census record. The 1841 will of George Hagen indicates his wife as Barbara and hopes she and the children will be able to keep the farm and smith operation upon his death. Clearly Barbara was unable to do so and apparently moved to Phoenixville as her oldest sons were able to gain employment in the new iron making factory. Below, and in notes from other Hagen family members, detail documented facts are described on this family. 141

146 Barbara (wife of George) and children are listed as Haggan in the 1850 Federal Census, Pa., Chester Co., Phoenixville, page 82B where Levi is employed as a puddler. (A few pages over on page 87B, is Levi's future wife, Annie R. Conrod.) Barbara (47) is the head of the Haggan household with children Levi (23), Joshua (18), and James (12) in residence. Next door is son John Haggan (26) with wife Sarah (23). Brothers Levi, John, Joshua, and William Hagen are recorded in a local 1857 Phoenixville, Chester Co. census. In the Federal census of 1860 Levi is listed as a Restaurant worker in Phoenixville, Chester Co. The 1860 Federal Census for Phoenixville, Chester County, PA, page 616, dated June 21, 1860 records Levi (32 - PA) and Ann R. (27 - PA) Hagan with children Agnes (7 - PA), Edwin (5 - PA), and Levi (2 - PA). Also in the household are John Hunter (42 - PA), George Hunter (17 - PA), and Moses Lacy (23 - PA). Chester County Archives & Records Services list an 1859 Tavern Petition for William Murphy filled under Levi Hagen. Levi Hagen is recorded in the June 1863 Draft Registration for Camden, Gloucester, Atlantic, Salem, Cumberland, and Cape May New Jesey Counties. His residence is North Ward Camden, age is 37, born in Pennsylvania, and his occupation is Puddler. He is married. In the city directories of Lancaster City, PA from 1869 to 1884 Levi is listed as a Puddler (one who separates iron from slag to make pig iron... the iron puddler made wrought iron using the puddling process; a highly skilled and dangerous occupation which required physical strength, stamina and sustained concentration). In the 1870 Pa. Census, he is described as a Laborer and in the Lancaster City Directories, by 1875 as an Engineer and then 1878 a brick mason. See notes on his mother, Barbara, for possible outcome for Barbara and her children in 1860 census. It should be noted that the families of Levi's brothers, John and Joshua, moved to Reading, PA while little brother James and his family remained in Phoenixville. John apparenly dies and his widow remains in Reading, PA the remainder of her life. Joshua and James become engineers (railroad??) in Reading and Phoenixville respectively. An Directory for Lancaster Co. lists Levi Hagen, puddler, h N Water, n Lemon in Lancaster City... the only Hagen listed. The Lant's Lancaster City Directory lists Levi Hagen, puddler, h Mulberry, n Lemon in Lancaster City... the only Hagen listed. The 1870 Federal Census, Pennsylvania, Lancaster Co., Lancaster City, Ward 9, page 406B, dated July 26, 1870 records Levi (43 - PA) and wife Annie R. (37 - Maryland) Hagen with children Agnes A. (17 PA), Edwin W. (15 - PA), Charles L. (12 - PA), Mary A. (7 - PA), Frank (6 - PA), and William G. (1 PA). Levi is employed as a Laborer while Edwin is listed as a salesman. The 1880 Federal Census for Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, District 152, 85A indicates Levi (53-PA/PA/PA) is a puddler in a roll mill and is living at 27 West German Street with his wife Anna R. (48 - Maryland/Maryland/Maryland) and children Agnes A. (22 - PA), Mary A. (17 - PA), Frank (15 - PA), and William (11 - PA). Both Agnes and Frank are working at a Cotton Mill. A Mary Eckman (35 - Divorced) is boarding with the family. Comparing surrounding families between the 1870 and 1880 census indicates that Levi and Annie moved to West German Street sometime in the 1870s. There are no Hagens living at 27 West German Street in the 1900 census. Sometime around 1918, the name German Street was changed to Farnum Street. It was probably a reaction to the perceived German aggression of The Great War (WWI). Anyway, later research reveals that Levi and Annie are living in Camden, New Jersey in 1888, 1889, 1890, and 1891 although the Levi listed could be Annie's son, Charles Levi Hagen... see notes on Directories below. The last record found on Levi is in the 1887 Lancaster City Directory... that is until I found him (and/or possibly his son) in the Camden, New Jersey City Directories for 1888, 1889, 1890, and 1891 along with his wife, Anna R. Hagen. (see notes on his wife Annie R. Hagen)... Well, perhaps the Camden Directory lists his son, Charles Levi Hagen... more research is needed. There is a death 142

147 certificate from Philadelphia for a Levi Hagen... which may or may not be our Lev The DOD is December 24, 1897 and his age is 71. His residence is listed as "Native of Towanda, PA". The cause of death is "Brights Desease, probably also chirrhosis of the liver". The place of burial is listed as "anatomical board". This Levi Hagen is the right age and right location but the Towanda is confusing. I have checked census records for a "Levi Hagen" living in the Towanda area but there are none. Then, the Camden City directories (see general notes for Levi's wife, Ann Conrad) list Ann Hagen as a widow of Levi as early as The date of burial for this Levi [disposal of the body] is December 27, 1897 and is probably NOT our Levi since Annie is listed as a widow in Noted events in his life were: He worked as a Puddler (1850) / Restaurant worker (1860) / Laborer (1870) / : Puddler (separates iron from slag to make pig iron) / 1875: Engineer / Puddler in a Roll Mill (1880) / 1886: brickmason. Levi married Ann R. Conrad circa 1851 in Chester Co., PA. Children from this marriage were: Agnes Annie Hagen was born on 27 Nov 1853 in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA., died on 20 Jul 1925 in Philadelphia, PA at age 71, and was buried on 23 Jul 1925 in Harleigh Cemetery, Camden, New Jersey. The cause of her death was Chronic Myocarditis / Arteriosclerosis / Senility. 96 i Edwin Walter (Watters) Hagen I2 ii Charles Levi Hagen3 was born in Mar 1858 in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA., died in Jul 1912 in Camden City, Camden Co., New Jersey at age 54, and was buried on 9 Jul 1912 in Harleigh Cemetery, Camden, New Jersey (probably). iv.

Hagen was born in May 1864 in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA. and died on 19 Oct 1916 in Laredo, Webb Co., Texas at age 52. The cause of his death was Mitral Insufficiency. v William Grant Hagen was born in Sep 1869 in Lancaster City, PA., died on 29 Jan 1901 in Philadelphia, PA. at age 31, and was buried on 3 Feb 1901 in Northwood Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA. The cause of his death was Diabetes Ann R. Conrad, daughter of Elijah Conradt and Mary Ann Watters, was born about 1833 in Maryland, died on 22 Apr 1896 in Camden City, Camden Co., New Jersey about age 63, and was buried on 25 Apr 1896 in Harleigh Cemetery, Camden, New Jersey. General Notes: From ancestry.com Directories Data Base: An 1890 Philadelphia City Directory lists William G. Hagen as a "driver" living at 1411 N. 22nd Street. Also in the house is William's brother, Levi C. Hagen, "smith" (This could be William's parents, Levi and Annie). The 1888 and 1889 Camden, New Jersey City Directories list Levi, Annie R., and William G. Hagen living at 510 North Front Street. Levi is a machinist, Annie is a dressmaker, and William is a skin dresser. The 1890 and 1891 Camden, New Jersey City Directories list Levi and Annie R. Hagen. Levi is a machinist and Annie is a nurse. William went to live in Philadelphia in that both he and his brother Levi C. Hagen are living at 1411 N 22nd Street as recorded in the 1890 Philadelphia City Directory. After contacting the Camden County Library System, they sent me digital copies for listings of "Hagen" in the Howe's Camden City Directories for It is clear that the ancestry.com 143

From ancestry.com, Census records include: The 1900 Federal Census for New Jersey, Camden, Ward 1, District 33, page 39B records Charles L. (March 1858) and Annie M. (July 1862) Hagen (indexed as Chas Hagner) with daughters Nellie S. (Dec 1883) and Mary E. (Sept 1887) Hagen living at 616 North 2nd Street. Charles and Annie indicate they have been married for 19 years have had 4 children of which 2 are still living. It appears that Annie R. Hagen, Charles' mother, died ca 1895 and the Annie listed in the directories above, from 1896, is the wife of Charles. Also, the Levi listed in the directories from is probably Charles Levi Hagen, son of Annie R. Hagen. This means that Annie's husband, Levi, probably died in Lancaster City, Pa ca 1887 and Annie moved to Camden to live with her son and his family. The Camden County Historical Society researched the Hagen family as described above: Anna and her son Charles and found death records (Works Progress Administration Project / ) indicating Annie R. Hagen to be born in 1833, died on 4/22/1896 at age 63, and buried at Harleigh Cemetery in Camden. Her parents are recorded as E. Conrad and Mary Ann. Subsequent research at ancestry.com reveals: 1) 1840 Federal Census for Anne Arundel Co., District 4, Maryland: Elijah Conraldt (30-40), 1 male (<5), 2 males (5-10), 1 female (<5), 1 female (5-10) [Annie?], 1 female (20-30). 2) The 1850 Federal Census, Pa., Chester Co., Phoenixville, page 87B records Elijah (47) and Mary A. (42) Conrod with children William (19), Samuel (18), Hanah (16) [Annie], Sarah E. (14), Benj. (11), Isabella (8), and John (7). Elijah is listed as a Lab[borer]. All family members are recorded as born in PA which is incorrect - they are born in Maryland. 3) The Maryland Marriages ( ) records at ancestry.com: Elijah Conrod, Gender: Male, Marriage Date: 21 Apr 1829, Spouse: Mary Ann Watters, Spouse Gender: Male [obviously wrong], State: Maryland, County: Baltimore... this record is at familysearch.com (LDS) and records the marriage at First Methodist Episcopal Church, Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland. 144

149 This is particularly interesting in that her son, Edwin W. Hagen, is named Edwin Watters Hagen on his death certificate but he has a son and grandson named Edwin Walter Hagen (II & III). This makes a convincing case for the middle name "Watters" as the correct given name. The above establishes convincing evidence for the correct line of Annie R. Hagen. Her parents are determined to be Elijah Conrad and Mary Ann Watters, both of Maryland. Below is additional documentation post 1850 for the family of Elijah Conrad: 1) The 1860 Federal Census, Pa., Chester Co., Phoenixville, page 659A/B records Elijah (60) and Mary A. (47) Conrad with children John (17), Randolph (8), Charles (6), and Susanna (4) Conrad. Elijah, Mary, and John are born in Maryland while the other children are born in PA. Elijah is a shoemaker and John is a Fisherman. 2) The 1870 Federal Census for Camden, New Jersey, Camden North Ward, page 309 records Elijah (60-Maryland) and Elizabeth (38-England / Wife) Conrad. Elijah is listed as "Keeps Shoe Store" and can not read or write. Mary Ann has apparently died and Elijah has remarried... where are Randolph, Charles, and Susanna? 3) The 1880 Federal Census for Camden, New Jersey, Camden County, First Precinct, Second Ward, District 41, page 91B records Elijah (70-Maryland/Germany/Maryland) and Elizaabeth (48England/Scotland/England / Wife) Conrad living at 524 North Sixth Street. Elijah is listed as "Shoemaker". 4) The Camden, New Jersey Directory of records Elijah Conrad, shoemaker, living at 508 North Front Street. This is not just a coincidence that he is living next door to his daughter, Annie R. Hagen and grandson, Charles L. Hagen. (see notes above regarding Camden County Directories) 5) Elizabeth G. Conrad is listed in the Camden County Directories of with an occupation of "shoes" indicating perhaps the death of Elijah in See general notes on her brother, Randolph, to record her mother's name as Mary Ann Walters... probably a transcription error from Watters. Obituary in the Camden Daily Telegram, April 23, 1896: DIED HAGEN, On the 22d last [Wednesday], Annie R. Hagen in her 64th year. The relatives and friends of the family are respectfully invited to attend the funeral on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence of her son, C. L. Hagen at 510 North Front Street. Interment at Harleigh Cemetery. (research done at Camden County Historical Society - by Rachel Pekar, Library Director, July 2006) A telephone call on July 18, 2006 to Harleigh Cemetery, 1640 Haddon Ave., Camden, NJ ( ) determined the burials in the Haddon Section, Lot 167 for the following family members: Charles L.

General Notes: The 1880 census records daughter Mary (Eberly) reporting her father was born in Pennsylvania while daughter Margaret (Hagen) reports her father born in Delaware. In 1900 and 1910, both daughters report their father born in Pennsylvania. An 1840 census record for Jacob Pearson, aged 20-30, from Nether Providence, Delaware Co., Pennsylvania could be our William Jacob Pearson. Perhaps the state and county names became blurred in memory. In 1840 census there is a D.S. Pierson, aged 60-70, with 3 males, aged 20-30, living in Lancaster City as recorded on page 37. William Jacob Pearson's birth date and death date are found on his tombstome located at the Springville Cemetery at the Keller Farm in Ephrata, Lancaster Co., PA. William married Salome (Sally) Shirk. Children from this marriage were: 97 Margaret Ann (Maggie) Pearson 4 i Mary Elizabeth Pearson was born on 1 Nov 1843 in Lancaster Co., PA, died on 29 Apr 1929 in Lacncaster City, PA. at age 85, and was buried on 2 May 1929 in Lancaster Cemetery, Lancaster, PA - Lot Salome (Sally) Shirk, daughter of Joseph Shirk and Susanna Keller, was born on 27 Nov 1824 in Lancaster Co., PA, died on 7 Jul 1911 in Lancaster City, PA. at age 86, and was buried on 10 Jul 1911 in Springville Cemetery, Ephrata, Lancaster Co., PA. The cause of her death was Cerebral Hemorrhage / General Senility. General Notes: See notes on Salome's cousin, Henry Yocum Shirk, for a Shirk Family History that he wrote in The 1850 Federal Census Lancaster City, Pa. (NW Ward, page 271) records Sarah (26), Margaret (8), and Mary (7) Shirk living in the household of Joseph and Susana Shirk. This Sarah Shirk is actually Salome Pearson, daughter of Joseph and Susanna [Keller] Shirk and a recent widow with two daughters (see notes on Joseph Shirk, her father). Salome "Sally" Shirk The 1860 Federal Census for Lancaster City, North West Ward, Lancaster City, Pennsylvania (1901) Lancaster, Pennsylvania (page 530) records Christianna Shirk (35) living in the household of Sarah [Salome] (32-seamstress) and Mary (16) Pearson. Of interest is the

151 census of Lancaster City, Pa. recording the John Baker (33) household with James (7) and Margaret Baker (18) in residence, as well as the 1870 census recording John Baker (43-Recorder of Deeds), Elizabeth Baker (40), James (18) and Annie M. (8) Baker. Below those 4 names, in the same household, is Maggie A. (28) and Lillie M. (4) Baker and Mrs. Susan Baker (72) [Susanna Keller Shirk] and Annie M. Baker (34) [Annie M. Shirk]. The Margaret Baker listed in 1860 is actually Margaret Ann Pearson Baker, daughter of Salome Shirk Pearson. Likewise, the Maggie A. Baker listed in 1870 is the same Margaret Ann Pearson, and the Mrs. Susan Baker and Anna M. Baker are Susanna Shirk and her daughter as describerd in the 1880 census. The 1880 Federal Census for Lancaster City, Pa. (ED#154, page 119B) records Susan Shirk (82) living with daughter Annie M. Shirk (44) in the home of son-in-law John Baker (52) and his wife Elizabeth (49) and children Annie (18) and James (27) at 519 West Chestnut Street The 1870 Federal Census for Lancaster records Salome Pearson (47) living with son-in-law Adam J. Eberly, Mary A. Eberly, and children William and Emma. Salome has real estate valued at $1,500. The 1880 census shows that Salome remains with the family that has now added children Elsie and Nellie. In 1900, Salome is living with the family of her son-in-law Adam J. Eberly at 314 West Chestnut Street in Lancaster, PA next to her 2 sisters, Anna Shirk and Christianna Zook, and down the street from her other daughter, Margaret (Magggie) A. Hagen. By the next census, 1910, Salome has moved into Edwin and Maggie Hagen's home at 131 North Charlotte. Adam Eberly has died and his wife (and some children) remain in their home.

(The surname is indexed at anestry.com as Banwell although the actual image is clearly Rannels) Diller is quite possibly the William Rannels recorded in the Records of Trinity Lutheran Church, Reading, Berks Co., PA who was listed as born in 1851 and died in The 1860 Federal Census for Caernarvon, Lancaster Co., PA (page 39), Blue Ball P.

152 The 1870 Federal Census for New Holland, Lancaster Co., PA, dated August 3, 1870 records a Henry Rannels (64 - retired Coach Trimmer) in the houshold of Levi and is probably Levi's brother. The 1870 Federal Census for New Holland and Earl Townships records Levi (54) and Mary A. (53) Rannels with children Wm. H. (19), Samuel (11), and Dora (9). Also in the household is Henry (64), Elizabeth (23), and Elderia (25) Rannels. The 1880 Federal Census for Lancaster City, PA, 3rd Ward, District 150, page 65A records Levi (63) and Mary A.

It [Gehr Family Graveyard/Monroe Family Graveyard] is located in Lower Allen Township, north on Lisburn Rd, left on Raven Hill Rd, on the left among some pines. The GPS location is N40 degrees, ', by W 76 degrees, '. George Cramer is repetedly named as the oldest son in estate papers of his father, Henry Cremer, Warrington Twp, York County Pennsylvania. The 1850 Federal Census for Lower Allen, Cumberland Co., Pa. records on page 25 a George Cremer (born ca 1789), married to Elizabeth Cremer (born ca 1791), with children Andrew (born 1818-Mason), Obadiah (born ca 1827), David (born ca 1828), George, (born ca 1829), and Mary (born ca 1820). Later census records have Mary, George, and David living in Urbana, Ohio next to or near Samuel Cramer (see notes on children of George). Also, in the 1850 census, East Pennsboro, Cumberland Co., Samuel and Sarah A. (Goudy) Cremer and son George W. (born ca 1849) are living just a few miles from the George Cremer family above and next door to Sarah's parents, Samuel and Anna Goudy. This Samuel Cremer is a Stone Mason as is the probable brother of Andrew Cremer, described above. By following Samuel and family in later census records, most of the the George Cremer family members move to Ohio and are living with or near each other and 4 of the brothers and some family move to Nebraska around see notes on other family members for census facts.

Date of certificate: 4 Feb [The "Father: George Cramer" is a bit questionable... does it mean that this George is a father, to Obadiah, or that this George's father is George? This researcher believes the former.] Henry Cremer of York Co., PA is the subject of the census study below. At Henry Cramer's death, John Myer and Abraham Beyers are listed as adjoining land owners. Finding the subject of this study is somewhat difficult in that Henry Cremer/Cramer/Kremer/Creamer appears many times in York Co. Finding known neighbors of our subject could help determine the correct Henry Cremer finds John Myers and Abraham Beyer living next or near our subject. Also nearby is Jacob Kline. I will thus try to follow these people through different census years in order to establish the correct census record. Henry Cremer, John Myers, Abraham Beyers, and Jacob Kline appear near each other through several census years. The 1800 census below shows such a connection (familes) in Manheim Township of York Co. but they are not the correct subjects. This is described here only to show the difficulty in finding our particular subject.

The 1800 census records 3 boys under age that would be my George and his brother Henry... another who died? Then the 1810 census records 1 boy (10-15) and 1 boy (16-25). The (10-15) would be Henry and the (1625) would be George... Right?!?. But what about your 1780 birth date... could that be an error? My dates for my George come from the 1850 census record... which is consistent with the MONROE WOODS FARM GRAVEYARD LOWER ALLEN TWP., CUMBERLAND COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA... Also supporting this George Cramer as 'my George" is the fact that Paul and Elizabeth Gehr with children are buried in the same graveyard. By the way... if you look at the 1850 census I think it is reasonable to conclude the "correct" Elizabeth Gehr is living next to "my George Cramer"...

General Notes: The 1860 census for Enon (Mad River) Township, Clark Co., Ohio (see notes on her son, Samuel Creamer) records the widow Elizabeth Creamer living with and near several of her children. It is not known whether she died in Clark Co. or in Champaign Co. where her son, Samuel, relocates sometime in the 1860s, perhaps after the war. However, her death is listed in the Champaign Co., Ohio Probate Court Records but no cemetery is listed. The following is from documents sent to me on April 28, 2007 by Pat Stickley of the Champaign County (Ohio) Genealogy Society. < Probate Court Records: Elizabeth Cramer, d 12/16/1869, age 80 years, born PA Elizabeth married George Cramer/Creamer Samuel Goudy was born about 1795 in Pennsylvania and died about 1855 in Eastpennsborough, Cumberland County, PA about age 60. General Notes: The 1850 Federal Census of Eastpennsborough in Cumberland County, PA, page 391A, dated August 7, 1850 records Samuel Goudy (55 - PA) with wife Ann (47 - PA) and children William (25 - PA), Jacob (21 - PA), Nancy Jane (14 - PA), John (10 - PA), Susanna (8 - PA), and Catherine (6 - PA). Next door is another daughter, Sarah (24 - PA), recently married to Samuel Cremer (26 - PA) (aka Creamer/Cramer). They have a son, George W. Cremmer (1 - PA). Samuel Goudy is a carpenter and Samuel Cramer is a Stone Mason. The previous page of the census records Elvira Goudy (3) (indexed as Elera Gundy at ancestry) living in the household that includes David (56 - Germany) and Catherine (45) Neathammer, John Nininger (55 - Germany) and Mary Neathammer (18 - PA). Elvira is the daughter of Samuel and Anna Goudy as indicated by her death certificate... see medical notes on Elvirda Goudy. In 1870, the widowed Anna Goudy will be living with a married Elvira Shatter (Shatto). See general notes on Anna M. Aker Goudy. The 1840 Federal Census for Monahan Township, York Co., Pennsylvania records Samuel Goudy (4050) with a wife (30-40) and 1 son and a daughter (under 5), 1 daughter (5-10), 3 sons and a daughter (10-15), 2 sons (15-20). Next to his name is "Capr"...which could mean carpenter. The 1850 census in neighboring Cumberland Co., PA records a Samuel Goudy with an occupation of "Carpenter" and there are no Samuel Goudys listed in York in that census. Apparently the Samuel Goudy family moved to Cumberland County sometime during the 1840s. The 1830 Federal Census for Monahan Township, York Co., Pennsylvania, (page 274) records Samuel Goudy (30-40) with a wife (20-30), 2 sons (under 5), 3 sons (5-10), and 1 daughter (under 5). Monahan Township borders along Cumberland County. Warrington Township is just below Monahan Township in York. Of course, Warrington is where the Cramer family lived before moving into Cumberland County. Sarah Goudy married Samuel Cramer in about Noted events in his life were: He worked as a Carpenter (1850).

The cause of her death was Emphysema Anna M. Aker was born about 1803 in Pennsylvania and died after 1870 in Carroll Township, Perry Co., PA. General Notes: Anna's maiden name is from the death certificate of her daughter, Catherine C. Goudy Seiler... see medical notes on Catherine Goudy. In 1870, Anna M. Goudy is living with John and Elvira Shatter next door to her daughter, Nancy J. [Goudy] Brown and her family in Carroll Township, Perry Co., Pennsylvania. (see notes below on the 1850 census for Anna's relation to Elvira) The 1870 Federal Census for Carroll Township, Perry Co., Pennsylvania, New Bloomfield P. O., page 28A/B records Anna Goudy (67) living with John Shatto (24 Stone Mason) with his wife Elvira Shatto (23) and son Peter Shatto (3). Next door is William G. Brown (50) with his wife Mary J. [Goudy] (50) and children John R. (16), Catherine (12), Jacob (10), Anna M. (8), Elberta (4), Reuban (3), and Samuel J. (1). The 1850 Federal Census of Eastpennsborough in Cumberland County, Pa. (page 390B) records Elvera Doudy (age 3 - indexed as Dundy) living in the household of Daniel (56) and Catherine (45) Neathanman. One page over is Samuel and Anna Goudy... Elvera must be a relation, perhaps grand daughter... but I do not know. (see 1870 census notes for William Brown, husband to Nancy Jane [Goudy] Brown regarding Anna Goudy living with Elvira) Anna married Samuel Goudy Richard Daughtrey II,8 son of Richard Daughtrey I and Christian Council, was born about 1770 in Isle of Wight Co., VA. and died after 1840 in Isle of Wight Co., VA.. General Notes: From Emily Christine Daughtrey: "Richard Daughtrey and his two brothers came over from England before the Revolutionary War. His brother, Edward, fought in the Revolutionary War and also in the war of His older brother Theopilus had two children, Soloman and Matthew; Soloman went out West and nothing more was heard of him. Matthew was well to do and he had two children; Harriet, who married Tom Jenkins (see Theop(h)ilus Daughtrey, person ID 189) and to which union two children were born: Tom and Pauline; Emmeline married Bill Allen but had no children." Extensive research of Isle of Wight Co. Wills and Land Deeds in 2005 by Nita Rawls Watterson established the factual Daughtrey names of Richard, Edwin, Theophilus, Solomon, and Matthew that Emily describes in her Family History. However, it appears that the some of the names Emily writes about are actually cousins to Richard, not brothers, and that "The Daughtreys" were living in the Isle of Wight Co. and Nansemond Co. area as early as To date, there is no hard evidence of an Edward that fought in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812; however, there is an Edwin that fought in the war of Perhaps Emily's "Edward", if he did indeed exist during the time period, was the one who went out west and was never heard from again...after all, Emily was recalling family stories for people, many of whom had passed on some 75 years before she was born, 155

160 which was in the year An early 1800s marriage register for Isle of Wight indicates a Richard Daughtrey marries a Phereby Johnson on December 21, Census records indicate Richard lived near a woman (head of household) named Phereby Johnson (1820 Isle of Wight). In the 1830 census, Phereby Johnson is no longer listed and Richard Daughtrey has a woman about 10 years younger than he living in his household. It is quite probable that Pennina died and Richard (I) remarries to this woman. Although Richard (II) could be the husband... the 1820 census lists the Phereby Johnson household as a female <10 and a female and one slave. One can surmise that in 1820 Phereby is a widow with a child and most likely at least 20 years old. The 1810 Federal Census for Isle of Wight Co., Va. records Richard Daughtrey (26-44) with family: 1 male (<10), 1 male (10-15), 1 male (16-25), 1 female (<10), 1 female (10-15), 1 female (16-25), 1 female (26-44) and 1 slave. The 1820 Federal Census for Isle of Wight Co., Va. records Richard Daughtrey (45+) with family: 1 male (10-16), 2 males (16-26), 1 female (10-16), 2 females (16-26), 1 female (45+). There are no slaves in this household. Next door is his cousin, Solomon Daughtrey, Sr. (45+). The 1830 Federal Census for Isle of Wight Co., Va. records Richard Daughtrey (60-70) with family (image 17 of 98): 1 male (20-30), 3 females (20-30) with no slaves. Nearby is his son, Joshua Daughtrey. It is unknown whether or not all other family members are children or perhaps a new wife. It is clear that Apenina is no longer in the household. Several pages over is Richard's son, Richard Daughtrey (20-30) with 1 female (<5) and 1 female (20-30) and 3 slaves (image 23 of 98). The 1840 Federal Census for Isle of Wight Co., Va. records Richard Daughtry (60-70) with family: 1 male (20-30) and 1 female (30-40). Nearby is his son, Joshua Daughtry. The 1850 Federal Census, Nansemond Co., Virginia on page 133 (image 11 of 181 from ancestry.com), dated August 2, 1850 shows Thomas W. G. Allen (b Nansemond Co.) [NOT William Allen] with wife Emeline Allen (b Nansemond Co.) [NOT Fanny Emeline Daughtrey] with daughters Maria F. Allen (17 - Nansemond Co.) and Margaret W. (4 - Nansemond Co.) and sons William E. (14 - Nansemond Co.) and Tenant T. Allen (2 - Nansemond Co.). The 1860 Federal Census, Nansemond Co., Virginia on page 552 (image 76 of 213 from ancestry.com) shows Emeline with children Maggie (b. 1846) and Tenant (b. 1848) but without husband Thomas. This record appears to be Emily Christine Daughtrey's Family History account described above... but this Emeline is older than "our" Emeline Daughtrey... see general notes on Emeline and Harriet Daughtrey. The 1850 Federal Census, Isle of Wight Co., Virginia shows Thomas R. Jenkins (b in South Carolina) with wife Harriet (b. 1829) and daughter Mary (b. 1849) on page 163 (image 85 of 132 ancestry.com). The 1860 Federal Census, Isle of Wight, shows Thomas R. Jenkins (b in South Carolina) with H. A. Jenkins (b. 1832) and P.A. Jenkins (b. 1858). The 1870 Federal Census, Isle of Wight Co., Virginia shows Thomas R. (b in South Carolina) and Harriet (b. 1836) Jenkins with children Pauline (b. 1857), Fanny B. (b. 1862), and Thomas T. (b. 1866) on page 290 (image 4 of 57 on ancestry.com). This family is very nearby the Joseph John and Priscilla Daughtrey household (next page of the 1870 census records...joshua has died). These 1850 Census records confirm some of Emily's writtings about the children of Matthew Daughtrey. Richard Daughtry appears on the Muster Roll of Captain John J. Holland's Company, attached to the 29th Regiment, Virginia Militia, commanded by Major Joseph W. Ballard in service from 25th June to 10th July Richard has a time of service of 15 days. Also in this Company are several of Richard cousins, including Henry Daughtrey (Ensign), Miles Daughtrey (Sergeant), Edward 156

161 Daughtrey (Corporal), Absalom Daughtry, Joseph Cutchins, Meredith Holland, and Jobe Holland. Richard married Apenina (Appenine) (Peninah) Morgan. Children from this marriage were: 104 Joshua Daughtrey i Richard (Dick) Daughtrey III was born about 1801 in Isle of Wight Co., VA., died on 15 Oct 1857 in Augusta, Richmond Co., Georgia about age 56, and was buried on 16 Oct 1857 in Magnolia Cemetery, Augusta, Richmond Co, GA. The cause of his death was Pneumonia. ii Francis Daughtrey was born circa 1807 in Isle of Wight Co., VA. iv. Appenine Daughtrey was born circa 1812 in Isle of Wight Co., VA, died on 15 Jul 1870 in Augusta, Richmond Co., Georgia at age 58, and was buried in Magnolia Cemetery, Augusta, Richmond Co, GA. The cause of her death was Apoplexy. v. Joe Daughtrey was born circa 1815 in Isle of Wight Co., VA. v Ellen Daughtrey was born in Isle of Wight Co., VA. vi Olive Daughtrey was born in Isle of Wight Co., VA Apenina (Appenine) (Peninah) Morgan was born circa 1770 and died circa 1825 in Nansemond Co, VA. at age 55. General Notes: See general notes on Isaac Lozey regarding Pennina (Daughtrey) Lausey... and the name "Apenina" The Great Grand Daughter of Richard and Appenina Daughtrey, Emily C. Daughtrey, wrote that the name of the wife of Richard Daughtrey was Apenine or Appenina Morgan. A Dec 1, 1807 Land Deed for Isle of Wight Co., Va. (Deed Book 20, pages found and related to me by fellow researcher Nita Rawls Watterson) records an indenture [sale] from Richard Daughtrey and his wife, Penelope, to Solomon Daughtrey. Emily wrote of a daughter, Appenina who married an Isaac Lozey... the 1860 census records for Richmond Co., Georgia list Isaac Lausey (42), a brick maker from Lower Canada married to a Pennina Lausey (47) from Virginia and in 1870 in the same county Isaac C. Losey is 52 (b Canada - Watchman) while his wife is listed as what appears to be Euninh (perhaps "I Nah") age 59 (b Virginia). This is convincing evidence that "Appenina Daughtrey" went to Richmond Co., Georgia where her brother Richard was living and that Apenina and Penelope are variations of the same name. Emily recalled family stories for her ancestors that appear to be valid. Apenina married Richard Daughtrey II John David Holland, son of Capt. Joseph Holland Jr. and Ester Edmunds, was born circa 1757 in Nansemond Co, VA. and died circa 1828 in Nansemond Co, VA. at age 71. John married Betsy (Elizabeth) Daughtrey.

General Notes: Elizabeth Holland is listed as age 80 in the 1850 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., Va., page 189. She is living next door to her daughter Matilda Holland and her family as well as the Robert & Margaret Daughtrey family. Matilda (44) is married to James R. (45) Holland and has children John T. (15), Joseph R. (11), Jason (9), and Etheldred (12). Robert (47) and Margaret (30) Daughtrey are parents of Catherine S. (14), Julia A. (10), Martha J. (4), and James E. (2). They will have sons Abram (born 1855) and Mathew (born 1856), who will become next door neighbors of Eley Daughtrey some 25 years from this 1850 record. The 1860 Federal Census for the Upper Parish, Nansemond Co., VA, Suffolk P. O., records James R. (52) and Matilda (50) Holland with children Jason Holland (17) and Joseph R. Holland (21), and Mary E. Holland (17). James has real estate valued at $1,250 and a personal estate at $500. Betsy married John David Holland Andrew Rawls,11 son of David Rawls and Elizabeth, was born about 1777 in Nansemond Co, VA. and died on 31 Dec 1852 in Nansemond Co, VA. about age 75.

Andrew owns 10 slaves. Next door is Abram Copeland with his wife [Andrew's daughter, Eliza Rawls] and daughter. The 1850 census for Nansemond Co., VA records the household of Andrew (73) with Jane (26), Elizabeth (23), and Andrew J. Rawls (22), and Martha C. Vaughn (2 - born in Isle of Wight - this is his grand daughter, daughter of Martha Rawls who married John Vaughn). In 1850 the Andrew Rawls family has real estate valued at $2,000. The 1850 Slave Schedule lists Andrew with 11 slaves: (50-m), (50-f), (35-f), (18-f), (12-f), (10-f), (9-m), (6-m), (5-m), (2-m), (1-m). In the Virginia 1850 Agricultural Census, Vol 4, Andrew Rawls is recorded as follows: 75 Acres of Improved Land, 274 Acres of Unimproved Land, 2,000 Cash Value of the Farm, 100 Value of Farming Implements and Machinery Andrew's farm, "Somerton Hall", was devised to his son Andrew Jackson Rawls in Nansemond Co., VA. See notes on Andrew's grand father John Rawls. Grave stones recorded below: could these be related to my Andrew (Bo Hagen 12/1998), dates seem right and Andrew has a son he names Elisha. Additional research indicates that Zilpha and Elijah are children of Hardy Rawls, son of William. Elijah married Margaret Jones and had children, some of whom listed in 1850/1860 census records include: Jarusha (b ca 1832, Maria(h) (b ca 1820), Japeth (b ca 1837), and Luther (b ca 1835). Margaret continues to live with son Luther and his family after Elijah dies. The Zilpha listed below is probably wife to Hardy. 158

General Notes: Bruce Saunders web-published cemetrey notes indicated Andrew Rawls wife, Christine, was a Milteer. In a response to an inquiry concerning Chrisitne Parker's father (David Parker vs David Milteer): I've ["Bruce Saunders" just looked in the book: Birdie, A Girl of the Old South pg126 "Goodman family: Edny Goodman b d m. 1. David Parker d. before 1841; m.2. David L. Miltier. b.1800 d , s/o Jethro and Sarah Miltier." The Robert and Dianna Rawls Rawls Family Bible records Christine's name as "Parker" and the Daughtrey family history notes from Emily C. Daughtrey records Christine's father as David Parker. David Milteer was Edny Goodman's second husband. Many researchers had previously identified Christine's father as David Milteer which is incorrect. David Parker died circa 1824 and Edny remarried David Milteer circa 1826 in Nansemond Co., VA. The 1850 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., Va. (page 215B) records David L. (50) and Edny (47) Milteer. The 1860 Federal Census for the Upper Parish, Nansemond Co., Va., page 602B, dated July 19, 1860) records David L. (60) and Edny (55) Milteer. Also in the household is their son, Charles D.

See research notes for 1830 census facts. 161

166 See general notes for Willis Wiggins (the younger) for 1840 census facts. Research Notes: Willis Wiggins is recorded in Virginia Militia in the War of 1812, Vol II: Page 733, Muster Roll of Captian Washington Smith's Company, in the 59 Regiment, Virginia Milita, Nansemond County, commanded by Lieutenant Colenel J. Riddick jr., called into actual service by Colonel Commandant, from March 20 to April 17, of the year 1813: Willis Wiggins, Private, Length of service is 28 days. The 1820 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA records Willis Wiggins as head of household: 2 m (<10) [Willis & Wiley], 1 m (10-16) [William], b, b, 1m (26-45) [Willis the Elder], b - 1f (<10) [daughter Elizabeth], b, b, 1 f (26-45) [his wife Cherry], b, b 6 slaves. From Virginia Chancery records it is known that Willis Wiggins the Elder died in 1827 (see research notes on his son, Willis Wiggins the younger) leaving 4 children, 3 boys and a girl, so by looking at the 1830 census one can possibly make conclusions on his wife and family: The 1830 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA records Cherry Wiggins as Head of Household: 1 m (10-15) [Wiley], 2 males (15 20) [William & Willis}, 1 female (15-20) [Elizabeth], 1 female (40-50) [Cherry - a widow], 3 slaves. The 1840 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA records Cherry Wiggins as Head of Household (image 50 of 82): 1 female (50-60) [Cherry - a widow], 2 slaves. Next door is Willis Wiggins as Head of Household: 1 male (20-30) [Willis], 2 slaves. From Virginia Court Chancery records, image 124 of 149, in an 1882 land claim, testimony: When asked who owned the Wiggins land... Abraham Ellis replies "Old Miss Cherry Wiggins" as the owner of the land. She is later referred to as Charity Wiggins [image 126 of 149] From Virginia Chancery records Testimony of Jno Collins, witness for the plaintiff (John Collins was born ca 1817, his wife Margaret, born ca 1827) - when asked who owns the Wiggins Tract of land states: Old Cherry Wiggins owned it first and after she died Willis Wiggins [her son] owned it and then Boulden Doughtie married Willis Wiggins' daughter, and he owned it and owns it to this day. [image 131 of 149] On the next page when asked if the Wiggins Tract of Land has ever been sold, John Collins states: No never been sold to any one that I know of. Willis married Cherry (Charity). Children from this marriage were: Elizabeth Wiggins was born circa 1811 in Nansemond Co., VA and died after 1880 in Nansemond Co., VA. i William Wiggins was born circa 1813 in Nansemond Co,, VA and died circa 1839 in Nansemond Co., VA at age ii Willis W. Wiggins The Younger iv. Wiley W. Wiggins was born circa 1816 in Nansemond Co., VA and died after 1880 in Fayette Co., Tennessee Cherry (Charity) was born circa 1785 and died after 1840 in Nansemond Co., VA. Cherry married Willis Wiggins The Elder John Thomas Harrell. John married Margaret "Peggy" Savage. 162

167 The child from this marriage was: 111 Christian Harrell Margaret "Peggy" Savage, daughter of Thomas Savage and Christian Cole, was born circa 1802 in Virginia and died after 1870 in Nansemond Co., VA. General Notes: The wedding book for this researcher's mother, Inez Wilson Daughtrey Hagen, records her "maternal grand mother's mother" as "Christian Harrell (Wiggins) (Skinner) (Doughtie)" and her "grand mother's grand mother" as "Peggy Savage (Harrell) (Byrd)". Peggy's husband, Christian's father, is recorded as "John Thomas Harrell". [A Virginia Death Record list Riddick & Margaret Harrell as parents of Christian Harrell... see general notes for Christian Harrell] I have since come to confirm that the parentheses are a notation for married names, thus, Christian was married to a Wiggins, a Skinner, and a Doughtie... see general notes on Christian Harrell. Similarly, Peggy must have been married to a Harrell and then a Byrd. Census records confirm a Margaret Byrd with a daughter, Mary A. Byrd, married to William Francis Miltiere. This couple had a daughter names Mary Etta Miltiere who later married Bolden Riddick Doughtie after the death of his 1st wife, Inez' grand mother, Cornelia Octavia Wiggins. Inez used to say that she called her grand father's (2nd) wife "cousin Ett". I have researched a great deal to "confirm" that connection but had come up empty with documented proof; however, I have come to the conclusion that Mary Etta Miltiere was indeed the cousin of Cornelia Octavia Wiggins (Doughtie), or at least the 1/2 cousin. The relationship is that Cornelia's grand mother [Christian Harrell (Wiggins)' mother] was Peggy Savage (Harrell) (Byrd) and that after the death of John Thomas Harrell, Peggy married Dempsey Byrd. Dempsey and Peggy had a daughter Mary Ann Byrd who married William Francis Miltiere, who were the parents of Mary Etta Miltiere. Thus, Cornelia and Mary Etta are 1st cousins. My family files had a Margaret (Byrd) separate from Peggy Savage... 2 different people; however, as of this date, May 11, 2010, I believe that they are one in the same and will merge the 2 women. Additional documentation appears below: The 1830 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA [image 73 of 96] records Margaret Harrell as the head of a household consisting of: 1 male (<5), 1 male (5-15), 1 female (20-30) [Margaret], 1 female (5-10) [Christian], 1 female (<5). The 1840 Federal Census for Nansemond Co., VA [image 79 of 82] records Margaret Byrd as the head of a household consisting of: 2 males (15-20), 1 female (30-40) [Margaret], 1 female (15-20) [Christian], 2 females (5-10), and 1 female (<5). The 1850 Federal Census for the Upper Parish of Nansemond Co., VA (page 196B) dated November 4, 1850 records Margaret Byrd (47 - Nansemond Co) with her daughter, Mary A. Byrd (15 - Nansemond Co). Also in the household are Francis Byrd (16 - Nansemond Co) and Vernon E. Bland (16 - NC). Next door and near by are Henry Byrd of (29) [that's correct... "of", like Henry Byrd of John (son of John) but there is no name after the "of"], Esther Byrd (55), Mary Byrd (20), Hester E. Byrd (18), Casandria Byrd (14), and Susan Byrd (11); Daniel H. Byrd (37), Mary Byrd (26), Cornelia Byrd (2); Wm Byrd (50), Moses Byrd (18), and Martha Byrd (16). Margarett Byrd is living with the William F. Milteer family in 1860 & 1870 in Nansemond Co., Va. (see notes on Christian Harrell) William's wife is Margaret's daughter, Mary Ann Milteer. This is the link that documents Inez Daughtrey Hagen's story about Mary Etta Milteer being referred to as "Cousin Ett"... ie Mary Etta is the 1/2 sister to Cornelia Octavia Wiggins both of whom were married to Inez' grandfather, Bolden Riddick Doughtie.

Owen Adkins, Sr. The original picture is part of the collection of Desmond Kendrick, Archivist of Henry, Pittyslvania, and Franklin Counties. (Cir 1875) The 1850 U.S. Census for the Northern District, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, page 237A, dated Oct 25, 1850 records Owen Adkins Sr. (55) with children Permillia (26), Elijah (19), Jesse (18), James (15), Jane (13), Arabella (8), Preston (6), William (5), and Isabella (2). Adkins households around Owen include Henry Sr. (68), Frances (5), Elizabeth (35), William (55), and Henry, Jr. (25). The 1860 Federal Census for the North District, Pittsylvania Co., VA, Museville P. O., page 189 records Owen Adkins Sr. (67) as a farmer, with real estate valued at $3,000 and personal property at $3,000 including 2 slaves. Living in his household is daughter Permillia Adkins (37) with her children Arbele (18), Ballard (17), William T. (15), Isabella (12), Pompey (9), Virginia (8), Ellen (7), Elvira C. (5), and Keen (1/12). Nearby is Owen's son, Jackson (45) [page 189], and his family as well as Owen's brother, Henry Adkins, Sr. (77) [page 190] and Henry's son, Henry Jr. (36) [page 190]. Interestingly, Owen's wife (former?), Fanney Adkins (67) is living nearby [page 190] with their son, Samuel Adkins (33). The 1870 Federal Census for Subdivision North of the Dan River, Pittsylvania Co., Va., page 261, dated August 1, 1870 records Owen Adkins Sr. (75) living in the household of Thomas (40) and Nannie (25) Kendrick. Also in this household is Christopher Kendrick (25), son of Louisa Kendrick and Owen Adkins. Next door to Owen is Elizabeth Hoskinds (32) with children William (12), John (10), and Nannie (6). Living in the same residence as Elizabeth Hoskinds are Anderson Adkins (64) [Owen's grandson] and wife Nannie (50). Many of their children are living with them or nearby: 164

169 Ralph Adkins (30), Bitsy Adkins (28), Jno W. Adkins (18), William N. Adkins (15), Henry G. Adkins (11). The 1880 Federal Census for Callands, Pittsylvania Co., Va., Dist 164, page 50A, dated June 5, 1880 records Owen Adkins Sr. (90) living next door to his daughter Permillia and her children. Also in the household with Owen is Lizzy Hoskinds (40) and William Hoskinds (22). Lizzy is listed as a servant and perhaps William is one of Owen's many alleged illegitimate children. One thing is for sure, many of the "Adkins" family members are repeatedly listed through the 1880 census records as "can not read or write" and they often have inconsistent reporting as to their ages in succeeding census reports. Stories were told that during Owen's lifetime, he had 44 mistresses and was the father of 108 children. He was known as "Owen of All". There is reported to be a written work about Owen's life titled THE LIFE AND LEGEND OF OWEN OF ALL. As of January 2010, there is no reported knowledge of any copies in existence. However, there is an 1878 newspaper article referring to Owen's prowess: The Liberty (Missouri) Tribune of March 29, 1878 wrote this about him: "Owen Adkins, of Pittsylvania Co., Va. is ninety-six years old. He has sixty-six children living and four dead. His descendants number five hundred and fifty, and they all live in the neighborhood of the old gentleman." The article can be found on the internet at [Missouri Digital Heritage] and a.pdf copy of the newspaper is included in this family file in the images associated with Owen S. Adkins, Sr. Notice should be given to the article in the Liberty Tribune that states his age as "96 years old". Since the article was published in 1878, that would make Owen's year of birth as Most references to his year of birth are 1785 or 1786; however, census records (included above) seem to indicate his year of birth to be closer to /-3. Thus it seems more likely to this researcher that Owen was more or less in his early 90s at his time of death, a ripe old age for sure, but not the usually accepted age of 99 years.

Silas Frederick Minter Copied Nov 28, 2007 from minter/mhccover.htm by A Family History and Genealogy Website by Don Chamberlayne (2005) (Cir 1850) from: Minters of Henry County by Donald W. Chamberlayne : Silas Fredrich Minter From the censuses of 1850 and 1860 it is derived that he was born in 1790 or Dodd's transcription of the marriages of Henry County shows that he married Nancy Stultz (there spelled Stults) on Nov [p.36]. The person to contact regarding the Stultz family is Jim Williams, who also manages the (Henry County Genweb site < and others. Nancy and Silas had eleven children, all of whom married. She died before 1845, and Silas married again, on Apr , Betsey Philpott. From the 1850 census, where she was listed as "Elizabeth," 171

176 age 52, her date of birth is taken to be about The 1860 census showed the wife of Silas to be "Betsy," age 68, so it is unclear whether this was the same person as Elizabeth of "Betsy" could be the familiar form of Elizabeth, but the ages miss by about six years. Some researchers have given the name Betsy Walker, suggesting the possibility that Silas married a third time. Silas was a preacher of the primitive Baptist faith, and performed numerous marriages recorded in Dodd's transcription, the earliest being in In the Minter Genealogical Bulletin (p.164), the description of the letter written by Capt. A. S. Minter in 1898, discussed above, offers an interesting perspective on the Rev. Silas Minter. It should be kept in mind that it is difficult to determine when or whether it is A. S. Minter or the editor of the Bulletin who is rendering the commentary, and if it was the perspective of the Captain then it was what a young nephew recalled many years later. The Rev. Minter was described as "a hardshell Baptist preacher of decided ability and violent prejudices." Judith P. A. Hill provided this account: "It is related of him that he preached so long to a Baltimore audience that they began to leave; whereupon he said: 'I perceive you all can't stand strong doctrine.'" [Hill, p.270] Captain Minter (or the editor of the Bulletin) added that Silas "... had a son who became a Christian preacher to whom he never spoke again." The alienated son apparently was John Abner Minter (5I). If, as seems to be the implication, there was a serious disagreement between father and son, a good guess might be that the issue had to do with religious doctrine. As will be seen, however, the first census to record John's occupation as a minister was that of 1880, and Silas died in 1872, so it is not clear that they were ever in the ministry at the same time. A portrait of Silas Minter is said to have hung on the wall of the Leatherwood Baptist Church for many years, along with those of other pastors, and a photograph of the portrait was provided by two different contributors, Seth Compton and Bob White, each of whose Minter lines tie into these notes at a later point (generations 5 and 6). A third offer to provide the same photograph was received from the person, Desmond Kendrick, the Henry County archivist, who is the originator of the image. (The boxed inscription below the portrait is Mr. Kendrick's work.) We are left wondering where this portrait is now. Is it back on the wall of the church following its renovations? If not, is it, along with portraits of any other Leatherwood Baptist preachers, in safekeeping? Does anyone know?

177 Silas married Nancy Stultz on 19 Nov 1813 in Henry Co., VA.

General Notes: The 1840 Federal Census for Henty Co., Va. records a year old female living in the household of Silas Minter. Since marriage records indicate Silas marries Elizabeth Walker in 1845, it is resonable to conclude Nancy dies in the early 1840s. Nancy married Rev Silas Frederick Minter on 19 Nov 1813 in Henry Co., VA Adam Law, son of Nathaniel Law and Rachael Powell, was born about 1786 in Virginia and died on 30 Jul 1853 in Henry Co., VA. about age 67.

General Notes: Marriages of Pittsylvania County records the marriage of Adam Law to Letty Law on 24 January (Adam Law and Letty Law, who signs her own certificate. Sur. Samuel A. Muse. p. 66) and 1860 census records list Elizabeth and Eliza Law as Adam's spouse. Letitia married Adam Law on 24 Jan 1818 in Franklin Co., VA James Garrett,25 son of Henry Garrett and Sarah "Sallie" Starling, was born on 4 Sep 1789 in Rockingham Co, NC, died on 17 Feb 1849 in Johnson Co., Missouri at age 59, and was buried in Sipe's Cemetery, Tebo Township, Windsor, (Henry) Johnson, MO. General Notes: James Garrett's father is probably Henry Garrett of Fairfax Co., Va. Henry Garrett is listed in the 1790, 1800, and 1810 Federal Census records of Rockingham County, N.C. and is the only Garrett (Jarrett, etc...) in the area. see notes on his father, Henry Garrett, for 1820 census facts. James Garrett and family moved to Missouri in It might be due to the land grants associated with Veterans from the War of 1812 or other factors. More research is necessary. What we do know is that apparently, James' mother-in-law, Amy Wall Simms, was with Mason Fewell and family on a migration to Missouri in Mason had been married to Malinda Wall (who died in Rockingham Co., NC in 1828), daughter of Richard Wall, brother of Amy Wall Garrett. Richard Wall had gone to Missouri and perhaps sent glowing reports back to his family in Rockingham Co., NC. In an in July 2004, Clara Garrett transcribed a letter from Powhatan Green "Poet" Garrett, written to James Price Garrett in It is from the Garrett Family History compiled by Grady Garrett, James Price Garrett's son. In it, Poet writes that Sarah or "Old Grandma Garrett" died giving birth to James Garrett (who married Elizabeth Simms). Sarah is buried near the creek "between our old homestead and your Pa's". Poet notes that he visited the grave in 1854 when he came from Missouri to visit family in Rockingham, N.C. (see notes on Henry, James, and Joe Garrett) Notes from Clara: from Albert Earl Garrett Sr. & Jr. Grady goes on to write that "Henry was really rich and when James and Elizabeth got married, Henry disowned them.

She followed this series with an additional series of articles about other historic homes of Rockingham County. In addition to details about the homes themselves, she included genealogical facts about the families who lived in these homes. I am typing these articles to place on the NC GENWEB archives in the hope that they will be useful to those researching some of these families. GREEN VALLEY THREE OAKS FARM THE OAKS WRIGHT-REID HOUSE WALL-CARDWELL HOME MEBANESHAFFER HOUSE WALL-REYNOLDS HOME THE CEDARS GOVERNOR REID'S PLANTATION MOUNT PLEASANT THREE OAKS FARM To be the home of Upton Wilson for more than fifty years is honor enough and to spare for any home. The world which beat a pathway to his door marveled at his tenacity, his courageous and independent spirit, his financial success, his love of life and his desire to serve humanity. All of this one can understand better when one knows his heredity and his immediate family. In his book "My Thirty-Three Years in Bed" Upton gave his family credit for his life, his endurance and his cheerfulness. No doubt he shared the credit with them. The Wilsons and the Hills were of sturdy pioneer stock, long lived and zestful. William Spaulding Hill, born in 1784, and his wife Anna, born in 1786, came from England to Nova Scotia, thence to Poughkeepsie, New York and then to Leaksville in the early 1800's. They had a hotel. One of their boarders was Andrew Johnson, who became 17th President of the United States. His tailor shop stood on the corner of Washington and Henry Streets, a small frame building owned by Madison Jenkins Hampton. It was later torn down to give place to a brick café building. While the Hills lived in Leaksville, Sarah Anne Hill, born in 1810, who came to Leaksville when a small child grew up and married Isaac Hand. Her sister Clarissa married Bolyn Garrett. Descendants of the latter couple are Joe Garrett, assistant commissioner of motor vehicles at Raleigh, Jim Sharp, Judge Susie Sharp, attorney Jesse Roberts, and many others. William Hill and his family next decided to try their fortune in Alabama. A son, William Hill and his 176

181 wife had a little daughter, Sally Ann, born in When she was two years old, her mother died so her father brought the child to his sister, Sarah Ann Hand, to rear. At that time the Hands lived at a farm on the Reidsville road. In 1860 they sold this farm to the Garretts and moved to the home at "Three Oaks." Isaac built a large log factory near the house and manufactured tobacco. In 1873, Sally Ann Hill married John P. Wilson and they lived in the same house with the Hands. The Wilsons, coming from Caswell County, have a large connection and a good name in Rockingham County. Thomas Fenner Wilson in 1840 owned 1000 acres of land which joined the Price, Sharp, Field and Hays farms. His son, Basley Graves Wilson was also a farmer. John Wilson, son of Basley Graves, was a teacher for several years, then a warehouseman, but he liked farming best. He was the first in his community to terrace his land and he developed the strain of Wilson's seed corn which added thousands of dollars to the corn crops in his vicinity. He taught a Sunday School class for years. He died in 1940, being 87 years old. The lovely mistress of "Three Oaks" has lived there for 89 years. Now at 94 she has cheeks as round and rosy as a ripe apple, bright eyes that can read without glasses and a mind as alert as that of youth. Her cheerful spirit, interest in people and her surroundings and a love of nature help to keep her young. She was the mother of twelve children, all of whom became adults except one. She can hold her own with the best of them. Among her activities in the past weeks, she has attended the wedding of her great nephew Charles Cardwell and Peggy Minich in Madison and has enjoyed motor trips to Roanoke, Lynchburg, Danville and to Nashville, NC and has spoken over the radio. She is as modern as today's newspaper. The Wilson children have a family solidarity and loyalty and are also socially conscious servants of humanity. Dr. Newton Wilson, who graduated from medical school in 1914, served in the war with Spain, the Philippine Insurrection and in the first World War - in the last as a medical officer. In the 40 years of his practice he has brought health and strength to countless people. Mrs. Wilson is an ideal doctor's wife, cheerful, affable, dignified and a leader in her church and its societies. Pat Wilson, adventurous like the Hill family, went to Idaho and was teacher, salesman and rancher. After his wife's death, he brought his two little girls to "Three Oaks" farm. Sally remained for a few years and then returned to Idaho to make her home with an aunt and uncle. Lois was reared at "Three Oaks", graduated from Guilford College, and is now a librarian. Pat Wilson was the first adult member of the family to die. Walter went to Georgia to live, married Mabel Rooks, and they have two sons and a daughter. Their oldest son served in the Air Transport Command in the Pacific. He has a large farm and often send crates of fruit, pecans and other good things to "Three Oaks." Tom Wilson, who went to West Virginia to live, later married and bought a farm near "Three Oaks." Here his daughter Myrtle was born. Two years later, when her mother died, Myrtle came to "Three Oaks" to live until her marriage to Neal Payne. Tom and his second wife operate the post office at Fieldale, Virginia. John Wilson is a merchant and authority on antiques. His wife is the very able Superintendent of Welfare in Rockingham County. Their daughter, Beverly, married Richard Robertson, editor of the Leaksville News. They have two children, Martha and Richard, Jr. Shirley Wilson served as a pharmacists mate in the US Navy and is now a teacher of physical education. He has a lovely wife and a son Johnnie. Charles Wilson is a merchant and teacher of a Sunday School class, as well as Master of Pomona Grange. His wife, the former Karen Canady, is a much-loved teacher in Madison. Three of the Wilson daughters have been teachers - Carrie, Lizzie and Eunice. Carrie is Supervisor of Burlington City Schools. Mildred, gentle and hospitable, still lives in the home. Her flowers have long cheered all who come that way. There have been four marriages in "Three Oaks," that of Sally Anne Hill and John Wilson, their daughter Lizzie to Percy Baynes, Eunice to Herbert Theil and Myrtle to Neal Payne. Four generations have lived at "Three Oaks farm. The house, started by Isaac Hand before the Civil War, was not finished. The workmen went to way, never to return. It has had additions and improvements made several times and is attractive and homelike. A chest corner cupboard, candle stand and leather bound Bible belonged to the family before the house was built. It is no wonder that Wilson son Upton found life good. His heart was full of love and his mind was free to soar. He could say with the poet: If I have freedom in my mind [love], And in my soul am free, Angels alone, that soar above, Enjoy such liberty. Stone walls do not a prison make, Nor iron bars a cage; Minds innocent and quiet take That for an hermitage; 177

In the 1870 Rockingham Co. census there is the following family: James Hagwood (65), Nancy (59), Thomas B. (20), John H. (18), Emma C. (15), and SARAH F. Coleman (32), Edgar J. Coleman (11), Nannie E. Coleman (10), CALEDONIA Coleman (8), George A. Coleman (6). Sarah [Fannie] is James' daughter who married George Coleman. George died in the Civil War. The 1880 Federal Census for South Oregon Township, Rockingham Co., N.C. District 234, page 154A, dated June 9,1880 records the widower James (73 - VA/VA/VA) Haygood with daughter Julia Haygood (37 -NC/VA/VA), son John Haygood (26 - NC/VA/VA), and grand daughter Caledonia Haygood [Coleman] (18 - NC/VA/VA). The Hagood surname has the following variations in many Caswell Co., North Carolina records: Haygood, Hagwood, Hagewood, Haywood, Heygood. By the 1880 census, the surname for this family appears to be regularly listed as Hagood except in Rockingham Co., N.C. where James Haygood is recorded. James married Nancy M. Hodges on 23 Nov 1836 in Caswell Co., N.C. Children from this marriage were: 123 Sarah F.

William has 18 slaves. The 1840 Federal Census for Farr River District, Granville Co., NC records an Elizabeth Blackwell (5060) as head of a household with 1 male (80-90). This is unusual in that the elder male would normally be listed as head of household. This older male is possibly Elizabeth's father. This was also done in the 1830 census... perhaps her husband, William, is incapacitated. Next door to Elizabeth is son William (20-30) and his wife (20-30).

189 Ninth Generation (6th Great-Grandparents) 384. George Hagen,1 son of John Hagen and Martha, was born on 23 Nov 1799 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA., 2 died on 4 Jul 1841 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA at age 41, and was buried in Clark's Family Burying Ground next to Mount Nebo Preysyterian Church. General Notes: A copy of a page from the John & Martha Hagen Family Bible (publication date of 1833) in the possession of John Wesley Hagen (of Parkesburg, Chester Co., PA April 2008) records the birth of George Hagen as November 23, 1799 and his death as July 4, see below... A copy of a page from the John & Martha Hagen Family Bible in the possession of John Wesley Hagen (of Parkesburg, Chester Co., PA George Hagen Will Page 1 April 2008) records "George Hagen departed This life July 4, 1840 Aged (1841) years 4 moth [months]". [Original Bible in possession of Wilma Fauth Jones as of Nov 2008] It should be noted that while in the Family Bible, George's death is clearly written as July 4, 1840 at the age of 39 years, it is equally clear that the will and estate inventory for George are dated in the year The Family Bible also has written that George was born on November 23, 1799, thus, he would have been 41 years of age, not 39 as the bible has written... there is no explanation for the discrepancy; however, this researcher believes that the court documents give the accurate date and that George had to have died in The bible record was probably filled out at a much later date from family recollections. Also... Pennsylvania Birth Records by John T. Humphrey, Pg 91 transcribes the birth of George Higgins as born September 23, 1799, christened August 11, 1802, father: John, mother: Martha and John Higgins, born January 23, 1802, christened August 11, 1802, father: John, mother: Martha - from Records of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Lancaster. The book, The History of Lancaster County, references the John Hagen family of Martic Township. In this book, sons Joshua, David (Davis), and Elijah are said to have carried on the Blacksmith/Ax Maker tradition of their father. Neither George nor Enoch is mentioned in this book, researched and written and published in 1883, as sons of John Hagen, blacksmith, maker of the "famous Hagen Axe", an early settler of Martic Township. This is most likely because they had died many years before the book was written. Of the other sons, Elijah died in 1871, Davis in 1880, and the last remaining son, Joshua passed away 1 year before publication. George's surviving family had moved to Phoenixville with sons John and Joshua moving to Reading and Levi to Lancaster City. By the time the book was being written, the only Hagens that remained in Martic where children of Elijah and Davis who were born after the death of George and too young to remember George and his family. Also in this book is a reference to the cemetery at Mount Nebo Preysyterian Church at Clark's Family Burying Ground. This is most likely where John Hagen and his son George are buried. Many of John's children and grandchildren are buried there. The church was built in 1855 and was torn down ca As of 2008 the borders and headstones are still visible at the graveyard along West View Rd near Mt. Nebo. From the book The History of Lancaster County (published 1883): Subject : Mount Nebo Presbyterian Church This place of worship is chartered under the name of the Presbyterian Congregation of Mount Nebo. It is located at what is commonly known as Clark's graveyard, an old burial ground of the forefathers of the present generation. When the first interment took place we have no means of knowing. The oldest tombstone in the yard bears this inscription, "William Neil, [William Neil was at this time constable of Martic township, and in attempting to arrest Hugh McFalls, met his death in the following manner: McFalls warned him to stay away or he would shoot him. Neil endeavored to arrest him before he could load his gun, and as McFalls had not time to put a load of shot in his gun, he turned quickly and shot him with the ramrod.] Feb. 8, 1814," although, as is well known, it was used as 185

190 a burial ground long before that time. The charter was granted April 23, 1854 (D. W. Patterson, attorney), to John Bear, York County, Maris Hoopes, John J. Porter, Thomas Stewart, and George Campbell, who composed the first board of trustees. This board held their first meeting May 15, The church was dedicated in October, Rev. Alfred Nevin preached the dedicatory sermon, assisted by Rev. Lindley C. Rutter. The church was supplied with preaching by Rev. L. C. Rutter, of Chestnut Level; Rev. Mr. Farquhar, of Chanceford, York Co.; by Rev. Mr. Gamble (Farquhar's successor), and occasionally by others until the installation of the first pastor, Rev. Ezra S. Heany, who was installed in June, The present board of trustees are George Campbell (president), Joseph Clark (secretary and treasurer), Joseph Armstrong, A. L. Pegan, Lewis Jenkins, and Isaac Walton. Chapter: Chapter LXVI. Martic Township. [By S. C. Stevenson.] Subject : Graveyards The oldest graveyard in this township is the one attached to the Methodist Episcopal Church at Marticville. The date of the first interment is not definitely known, but it antedates the French and Indian war. It was used as a burying-ground by the miners who worked the mines now known as the Pequea Silver Mines, in Pequea township. The next in point of age is the one attached to the Muddy Run Presbyterian Church, better known as the "Old Log Church." The first interment, according to the inscription upon the tombstone, is that of William Duncan, whose interment bears date This is followed by Sarah Rannels interment, bearing date 1750; William Leaman, interred in 1760; and Hugh Gray, in The old graveyard at the Mount Nebo Presbyterian Church, known as Clark's graveyard, has also been used for a long time as a place of interment, but as the date of the first burial at this place has faded from the recollection of the oldest inhabitants, we have no other data by which we might be able to fix the exact time at which this spot was used as a place of burial for the dead. There is also a graveyard adjoining the Methodist Episcopal Church at Mount Nebo, which was occupied as such as early as the building of the first Methodist Church at that place. Chapter: Chapter LXVI. Martic Township. [By S. C. Stevenson.] The book from The Early Blacksmiths of Lancaster County, Elmer Z. Longenecker, Community Historians Annual, Number 10, Dec indicates records found for both Joshua and George Hagen as blacksmiths of Martic Township. Joshua in 1827 and George in 1823, however, George is transcribed as "Hogen"... a probable transcription error. This book also records Daviz [Davis] Hagen, Joshua Hagen, and George Hagen in 1831 in Hempfield Township. The Hagens never lived in Hempfield so I can only imagine that they traveled there trade. Hempfield is not contiguous to Martic. The following census and land records from 1800 to 1850 clearly indicate that George Hagen was the oldest son of John Hagen. A birth record from The Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (of Lancaster County, PA.) indicates George as the son of John and Martha Higgins born Sept 23, However, a page from the Hagen Family Bible in the possession of John Wesley Hagen (of Parkesburg, Chester Co., PA April 2008) records the birth of George as November 23, The 1800 Federal Census records a John Heagan and upon review of all individuals of Lancaster Co. is the only possible John "Hagen" of Martic Township and of Lancaster County. The 1810 and 1820 census records for Martic Township list a John Higgins in the same position for the two records, relative to neighbors, with children that fill the appropriate ages of Hagens in the census records to follow. The 1830 census shows a George Hagens (with 2 sons and 1 daughter all under 10) in the same respective area of Martic with an older woman neighbor, Martha Hagens. The next census, 1840, records a George Hagen family with 5 sons and 1 daughter and a wife (female of appropriate age) with a nearby Joshua Hagen. It should be noted that in that census Joshua Hagen has an older woman living in the home. The 1850 Federal Census of Martic Township records a Joshua Hagen household with a Martha Hagen, of appropriate age to be his mother, in residence. George is no longer listed in Martic Township; however, there is a record of a will for George Hagen in He leaves everything to his wife Barbara hoping to keep the blacksmith shop and farm (as indicated by the will and an estate inventory). It should be noted that while Barbara and children are not in Martic in 1850 there is a Barbara Haggan with children living in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA. Son Levi marries in the early 186

191 1850s and moves to Lancaster City sometime in the 1860s. By 1860, George's son, Joshua, moves to Reading, Berks Co. where he raises his family. Many of Joshua's children and grand children remain in Reading throughout their lives. George's son, James, marries and remains in Phoenixville. He has two daughters who remain single and continue to live with their mother well into the 1900s, long after James' death. All of the above mentioned family members use the "HAGEN" spelling after The 1830 Federal Census for Martick [Martic] Township, Lancaster Co., PA, page 117 records George Hagans (20-29) with a female (wife) (20-29) and female (sister) (10-15) and sons as follows: 1 (5-9) [John] and 1 (<5) [Levi]. Next door is his mother, the widow Martha Hagans and the rest of her family. The 1840 Federal Census for Martick [Martic] Township, Lancaster Co., PA, page 274 records George Hagans (30-40) with a wife (30-40) and daughter (10-15) [Mary] and sons as follows: 1 (15-20) [John}, 1 (10-14) [Levi], 2 (5-9) [William & Joshua], and 1 (<5) [James]. Nearby on the same page of the census record is Joshua Hagan (30-40), 1 woman (60-70) [his mother Martha], 2 women (15-19, sisters; Mary & Abigail?), 1 male (20-29) [Enoch], 1 male (15-19) [Elijah]. Next door to Joshua is Davis Hagen (2030), 1 male (15-19) [perhaps Elijah stays here sometimes], 1 male (<5) [Henry B. Hagen], 1 female (2029) [Margaret]. Hannah Hagen Alexander, sister of George, Joshua, and Davis, and her family can be found 3 pages over on page 271. The August 18, 1841 edition of the Lancaster Examiner & Democratic Herald reported a Notice for the Estate of George Hagen, dec'd regarding All persons indebted to the Estate of the late George Hagen required to make payment on or before Oct. 1, 1841 or those making claims against said dec'd to present on or before the said day to Isaac Grist. Barbara Hagen & Isaac Grist Executors - July 28, 1841 Research Notes: Memorial of citizens of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, To the honorable the Senate and House of Representatives asking the restoration of the public deposites (sic) and the re-charter of the Bank of the United States. Serial Set ID: 256 H.doc.167 Document Date: Mar 3, 1834, 21 pgs. There were approximately 2500 signatures on the petition including George Hagen, Joshua Hagen, Davis Hagen. Thomas Armstrong, Hugh Armstrong (also David Alexander, Thomas Alexander, James Alexander, and William McCreary); see page 13 of the document (from online Heritage Quest, U.S. Serial Set, Salem Library, August 2009) Marietta, February 1834 To the honorable the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States, in Congress assembled. [Referred to the Committee of Ways and Means] Respectfully Represents: That as citizens tenacious of our rights and liberties, we believe it our duty, though few in number, to make known to Congress our views on the present crisis in the money concerns of the country, and ask for relief. We, among others, have felt the effect caused by the removal of the public deposites (sic) from the United States Bank to the State Banks, which has paralyzed every description of business, destroyed the confidence between the banking institutions of our country, a panic has seized upon the public mind, capitalists withhold their funds, or take advantage of their fellow men by extracting exorbitant interest. Our commercial transactions are confined to Philadelphia and Baltimore. Previous to the removal of the deposites, there was no difficulty obtaining from commission merchants cash advances on produce transported to them; at this time neither advances can be obtained, nor yet sales made to any amount for cash, at even the present low prices for flour, grain, etc. If sales are made on time, the best paper can not be cashed unless by paying a ruinous discount. The difficulties are daily increasing, and, in our humble opinions, the most speedy method of restoring public confidence, and relieving the money pressure, will be the immediate return of the public deposites to the Bank of the United States. Therefore we humbly pray your honorable bodies to cause the public deposites to be returned to the 187

192 United State Bank, there to remain until the expiration of the charter, unless Congress direct them or any part thereof, to be withdrawn at an earlier day. And your petitioners will ever pray, etc. Noted events in his life were: He worked as a Blacksmith, Axe Maker, Farmer. George married Barbara3 about 1822 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA. Children from this marriage were: John Hagen3 was born about 1824 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA and died circa 1856 in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA. about age i Levi Hagen4 ii Mary Hagen was born about iv. William Hagen was born about v. Joshua Hagen5 was born in Apr 1832 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA, died on 13 Oct 1914 in Reading, Berks Co., PA at age 82, and was buried on 16 Oct 1914 in Aulenbach Cemetery, Reading, Berks Co., PA. The cause of his death was Acute De??????? / Chronic Valvular Disease. v James Hagen3 was born about 1838 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA. and died about 1899 in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA. about age Barbara3 was born about 1803 in Pennsylvania and died after 1850 in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA.. General Notes: The 1850 Federal Census for Phoenixville Borough, Chester, PA, page 82B, dated August 14, 1850 records Barbar Haggan (sic) [Barbara Hagen] (47 - PA) and children Levi (23 - PA), Joshua (18 PA), and James (12 - PA). Next door is son John (26 - PA) Haggan and his wife Sarah (23 - PA). Levi, Joshua, and John are puddlers. Barbara indicates that she can neither read nor write. The 1860 Federal Census for Phoenixville, Chester County, PA (page 668) records a James Hagan (22), employed as a water tender, living with a Thomas Hagan (55 - puddler) and Barbara (58) Hagan, William Hagan (31 - puddler) and Mary Hagan (30 - domestic) [The Mary Hagen listed George Hagen Will Page 2 here could be the same person listed in the 1850 census living with her (1841) uncle Enoch Hagen in Martic Township... see general notes on Enoch Hagen]. This may be the family of George and Barbara Hagen in that Barbara and James are the right age and William and Mary could be the other children of George and Barbara as listed in the 1840 census. Thomas... is a puzzle. Perhaps Barbara remarried and the census taker recorded Hagan for her husband's name. The addition of William and Mary to the family here would explain the 5 sons and 1 daughter as listed in the 1840 census in Martic Township. No record of this Thomas and Barbara Hagen family has been found in 1870 or elsewhere although a Thoma Hagan is listed in Poor House records in 1870 in Chester County. Barbara's husband, George, died in Martic Township in His will indicated that his wife, Barbara (and/or the co-executor), find financing for what was owed on the farm. Either financing was not found or she decided to sell because in 1850 she is living with her children in Phoenixville, Chester Co., PA a few miles north east of Martic Township. George's mother, Martha, as well as his brothers and sisters continued to live in Martic Township (Martha lives with her son Joshua). They are referenced in a 1884 History of Lancaster Co. as "a prominent family" with John the maker of the "famous Hagen Axe". Research Notes: Possible Family of Barbara Hagen using the 1820 Census for Lancaster County George and Barbara have children: John, Levi, Joshua, James,... possible naming conventions - 1st son for George's father (John), 2nd son for Barbara's father (Levi), 3rd son for George's brother (Joshua), 4th son for Barbara's brother (???), etc...

The 1840 Federal Census for Anne Arundel Co., Maryland, District 4: Elijah Conraldt (30-40), 1 male (<5), 2 males (5-10), 1 female (<5), 1 female (5-10) [Annie?], 1 female (20-30). The 1850 Federal Census, PA, Chester Co., Phoenixville, page 87B records Elijah (47) and Mary A. (42) Conrod with children William (19), Samuel (18), Hanah (16) [Annie], Sarah E. (14), Benj. (11), Isabella (8), and John (7). Elijah is listed as a Lab[borer]. All family members are recorded as born in PA which is incorrect - they are born in Maryland. The 1860 Federal Census, PA, Chester Co., Phoenixville, page 659A/B records Elijah (60) and Mary A. (47) Conrad with children John (17), Randolph (8), Charles (6), and Susanna (4) Conrad. Elijah, Mary, and John are born in Maryland while the other children are born in PA. Elijah is a shoemaker and John is a Fisherman. 189

194 The 1870 Federal Census for Camden, New Jersey, Camden North Ward, page 309 records Elijah (60 Maryland) and Elizabeth (38 - England / Wife) Conrad. Elijah is listed as "Keeps Shoe Store" and can not read or write. Mary Ann has apparently died and Elijah has remarried... where are Randolph, Charles, and Susanna? See general notes on Elijah's son, Randolph Conrad. The 1880 Federal Census for Camden, New Jersey, Camden County, First Precinct, Second Ward, District 41, page 91B records Elijah Conrad (70 - Maryland / Germany / Maryland) and his wife, Elizaabeth Conrad (48 - England / Scotland / England) living at 524 North Sixth Street. Elijah is listed as "Shoemaker". Elijah Conrad is listed in the 1887, 1888 Camden City Directory as a shoemaker living at 508 North Front Street. Elijah's 2nd wife, Elizabeth G. Conrad, is listed in the 1888, 1889 and 1890, 1891 Camden City Directories living at 508 North Front Street. Her occupation is listed as "Shoes". The 1895, 1897 & 1898 Camden Directories record Elizabeth G. Conrad, 508 N Front with no occupation. After 1898, someone other than Elizabeth Conrad is living at 508 N Front. It appears that Elijah died ca 1888 and Elizabeth continues to live at the same address running the family business for the next few years. It is of interest that next door is the Levi Hagen Family of Lancaster, PA. That family includes Elijah Conrad's grandson, Charles Levi Hagen, with his wife and children as well as Elijah's daughter, Ann R. Conrad Hagen. Perhaps Ann's husband, Levi Hagen, died (in Lancaster) and his widow moved to Camden. Elijah apparently died ca 1888, however, as of November 2010 I have found no death nor burial record for Elijah; however, 2012 brought the 1887 death record from see medical notes.

General Notes: The 1840 Federal Census Lancaster City, PA, page 12 records Joseph Shirk (40-50) with males: 1 (<5) [Rueban], 1 (5-10) [ Joseph], 1 (10-15) [ Jacob], and females: 2 (<5) [ Anna & Fianna], 1 (5-10) [ Elizabeth], 1 (10-15) [ Susanna], 2 (15-20) [ Salome & Christina], and 1 (40-50) [ wife Susanna]. Daughters Leah and Maria have married and are living elsewhere in the city. The 1850 Federal Census Lancaster City, Pa. (NW Ward, page 271) records Joseph Sen. (54) and Susana (53) Sherk [Shirk] with children Christianna (29), Joseph (18), Fianna (16), Anna (14), and Reuban (12). Also listed in the household is Sarah Shirk (26), Margaret Shirk (8), Mary Shirk (7), and John Shirk (22). The Sarah, Margaret, and Mary Shirk are actually Salome, Margaret, and Mary Pearson. Salome Shirk Pearson had recently become a widow with the death of her husband William Jacob Pearson. Salome (here listed as Sarah) would be 26 and her daughters, Margaret and Mary, 8 and 7 so these conclusions are very reasonable. John is probably a cousin. Next door is Joseph Shirk's son-in-law, Benjamin Reinhold, with his wife, Maria (Shirk) Reinhold, and their family. Observation regarding the text below: The birth dates as written by Henry Y. Shirk in his Shirk Family History for brothers Peter and Joseph Shirk are Sept. 26, 1799 and Oct. 2, 1799 with Peter being younger. The 1850 Census records indicate Joseph as 54 and Peter as 50 while in 1860 Joseph has 193

198 died and Peter is 60. Joseph was most likely born before 1799 and this researcher will use the date of Oct 2, 1798 as his date of birth. From The Shirk Family History and Genealogy: From 1665 to 1914 by Henry Yocom Shirk (Mennonite Publishing Co., 1914) regarding Joseph and Susanna (Keller) Shirk: Joseph Shirk, sixth son and tenth child of Ulrich (III) and Mariah (Eberly) Shirk, was born in West Cocalico Twp., Lancaster Co., PA, Oct. 2, Married Miss Susanna Keller, of Ephrata Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa. She was born Oct. 11, This union was blessed with eleven children: Leah, the first born, Nov 7, 1819 ; Christianne, born Mar. 3, 1821; Maria, born Oct. 28, 1822; Salome, born 1825; Susanna, born Sept. 14, 1826; Jacob K. born Aug. 19, 1828; Elizabeth, born June 7, 1830; Joseph born July 17, 1832; Fianna F., born July 1, 1834; Anna Mahala, born Feb. 16, 1836; Reuben born May 2, Joseph Shirk, the father of this family, after his marriage engaged in farming on one of the best farms of Meadow Valley, Lancaster Co., PA, were also his children were born, and some reared to maturity. When he sold this farm about 1841 and moved to Lancaster, PA, engaging in the Commission and Transportation business with David Royer, being the senior member of the firm name of "Shirk and Royer," where they continued a number of years, until the death of the subject of this sketch occurred July 7, Susanna (Keller) Shirk, Joseph's wife, remained a widow in Lancaster, the remaining years of her life, dying Sept. 6, 1886, at the great age of 88 years, 10 months and 25 days. She was a member of the Brethren Church. They are both buried at the Keller Cemetery, Springville, PA. See general notes on Joseph's wife, Susanna, for later family facts in the census records. Joseph married Susanna Keller. Children from this marriage were: Leah Shirk8 was born on 7 Nov 1819 in Lancaster Co., PA and died on 30 May 1891 in Lena, Stephenson Co., Illinois at age 71. i Christianne Shirk was born on 31 Mar 1821 in Lancaster Co., PA and died on 27 Jan 1902 in Lancaster City PA. at age 80. ii Maria Shirk was born on 28 Oct 1822 in Lancaster Co., PA, died on 16 Aug 1879 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA. at age 56, and was buried on 19 Aug 1879 in Lancaster Cemetery Lot# iv.

Shirk was born on 19 Jul 1834 in Lancaster Co., PA, died on 16 Jan 1921 in Philadelphia, PA at age 86, and was buried on 19 Jan 1921 in Lancaster Cemetery Lot# The cause of her death was Chronic Myocarditis / Arteriosclerosis / Apoplexy. x. Anna Mahala Shirk was born on 16 Feb 1836 in Ephrata, Lancaster Co., PA., died on 27 Apr 1912 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA. at age 76, and was buried on 30 Apr 1912 in Kellers Cemetery near Ephrata, PA.. The cause of her death was Exhaustion due to melancholia. x Reuben Shirk was born on 25 May 1838 in Lancaster Co., PA, died on 30 Sep 1913 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA. at age 75, and was buried on 3 Oct 1913 in Lancaster 194

199 Cemetery, Lancaster City, PA. The cause of his death was Acute Ocdema of Lungs & organic Heart Disease Susanna Keller, daughter of Jacob Keller and Christina Huber, was born on 11 Oct 1797 in Ephrata, Lancaster Co., PA, died on 6 Sep 1886 in Lancaster City, Lancaster Co., PA at age 88, and was buried on 9 Sep 1886 in Keller Cemetery, Springville, Lancaster Co., PA. General Notes: See the general notes on her husband, Joseph Shirk. The 1860 Federal Census for Lancaster City, PA (NW Ward, page 501) records Amaziah (32) and Fianna (25) Barr living with son John F. Barr (2) in the home of mother-in-law Susan Shirk (63). Also in the home are Susanna's children: Reuben (22) and Mahela (24). Amaziah is a Rail Road Brakeman. The 1870 United States Federal Census for Lancaster City, Ward 1, Pa. (page 174) records John Baker (43-Recorder of Deeds), wife Elizabeth (40), son James (18) and daughter Annie M. (8). Also in the household are Maggie A. Baker (28), Lillie M. Baker (4), Mrs Susan Baker (72) and Annie M. Baker (34). This Maggie A. Baker is clearly Margaret Ann Pearson and Lillie is her daughter Mary Elizabeth Baker while Mrs. Susan Baker and Annie M. Baker are actually Susanna and Anna M. Shirk. Elizabeth Baker, wife of John Baker above, is Susanna Shirk's daughter. The 1880 Federal Census for Lancaster City, Pa. (ED#154, page 119B) records Susan Shirk (82) living with daughter Annie M. Shirk (44) in the home of son-in-law John Baker (52) and his wife Elizabeth [Shirk] Baker (49) and children Annie (18) and James (27) at 519 West Chestnut Street. John and James are Tobacconist. Of interest is the 1860 census of Lancaster City, PA recording the John Baker (33) household with James (7) and Margaret Baker (18) in residence, as well as the 1870 census recording John Baker (43-Recorder of Deeds), Elizabeth Baker (40), James (18) and Annie M. (8) Baker. Below those 4 names, in the same household, is Maggie A. (28) and Lillie M. (4) Baker and Mrs. Susan Baker (72) and Annie M. Baker (34). The Margaret Baker listed in 1860 is actually Magerat Ann Pearson, daughter of Susanna Shirk Pearson. Likewise, the Maggie A. Baker listed in 1870 is the same Margaret Ann Pearson and Mrs. Susan Baker and Anna M. Baker are actually Susanna Keller Shirk and her daughter as described in the 1880 census above. Maggie A. Baker is supposed to have been married to "a Baker"... or perhaps had the children of a Baker... perhaps John Baker listed above in the 1860 census record. One would speculate that if Maggie and John had a relationship then she certainly wouldn't have been living with John and his wife, Elizabeth, as recorded in the 1870 census... after all, Elizabeth Baker is actually Elizabeth Shirk Baker, who is the aunt of Maggie. Thus Maggie Pearson Baker most probably married or had a relationship with a relative of John Baker... perhaps a little brother. Maggie will marry Edwin Hagen ca Lancaster Intelligencer - Sept 8, 1886, page 4 Deaths SHIRK - On the 7th inst., at the residence of her son-in-law, John Baker, Lancaster, Susanna Shirk, late relict of Joseph Shirk, aged 88 years, 10 months and 25 days. The relatives and friends of the family are respectfully invited to attend the funeral, at Springville, near Ephrata, on Thursday, September 9th, at 10 o'clock. Susanna married Joseph Shirk John Rannels was born about 1785 in Pennsylvania and died after 1860 in Earl Township, Lancaster Co. PA.. General Notes: John Reynolds is first recorded in the 1810 Federal Census for Earl Township of Lancaster Co., Pa. He is listed in the age catagory of which is consistent with his reported age in the 1850 census. The only other person in this household is a woman of years of age. The 1820 Federal Census for Lancaster City has a John Reynolds (26-45) but many other members of his household inconsistent with There are no John Rannels or Reynolds in Earl. 195

200 The 1830 census records a John Reynolds in Lancaster City and one in Earl Township. It is reasonable to assume that the John Reynolds of Earl Township in 1820 was not recorded. The 1830 Federal Census for Earl Township records John Reynolds of years with a wife of years and 4 sons: one in each of the first age categories (<5, 5-10, 10-15, 15-20) and 2 daughters: (10-15, 15-20). The 1840 Federal Census for Earl Township records John Rannals of years with a wife of years. There are three younger males and three younger females in the household: males, 1 (5-10), 1 (1015), 1 (30-40); females: 1 (<5), 2 (20-30). The 1850 Federal Census for the New Holland part of Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pa. records John Reynolds, carpenter, age 65, with wife, Susanna (64), and son, Henry (39), a Coach Trimmer. The only Reynolds/Rannels in New Holland, Lancaster Co., Pa. are John, Susanna, and Henry. In their household is a Susanna Meredith (11) which could be a grand daughter. The 1860 Federal Census for New Holland Post Office, Earl Township, Lancaster Co., Pa. records John Rannels (75) with Henry Rannels (52) and Sarah Rutter (17) in that household. A near by neighbor is William Rannels (30 - Carpenter) with wife Eliza (31) and children Emma (4) and William (2/12). The 1870 Federal Census for Lancaster City, Pa. records Henry Rannels (64 - retired Coach Trimmer) in the household of Levi Rannels. John Rannels is no longer listed, however, it is clear that Henry, who was living with John in 1860, is Levi's brother. Noted events in his life were: He worked as a Carpenter. John married Susanna. Children from this marriage were: Henry Rannels was born about 1808 in Earl Township, Lancaster Co. PA. and died circa 1887 in New Holland, Lancaster Co., PA about age 79. Another name for Henry was Harry. 196 i Levi Rannels ii John Rannels was born about 1824 and died after 1880 in Manheim Boro, Lancaster Co., PA.. iv. William Rannels was born in Oct 1829 in Earl Township, Lancaster Co. PA. and died after 1910 in Manheim Borough, Lancaster Co., PA Susanna was born about 1786 in Pennsylvania and died about 1855 in Earl Township, Lancaster Co. PA. about age 69. Susanna married John Rannels Emanuel Becher, son of Unknown (Emanuel) Becher and Unknown, was born on 21 May 1776 in Pennsylvania, died on 4 Jun 1868 in Lancaster Co., PA at age 92, and was buried in Seltenreich Reformed Church, New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. General Notes: The web site records: Emauel Becher, Born: 21 May 1776 in Pennsylvania; Died: 4 Jun 1868 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania at age 92; Marriage: Elenor; Buried: New Holland: Seltenreich Reformed Church, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. His wife is Elenor, Born: 5 Sep 1783, Westminister, Cecil County, Maryland; Died: 7 Apr 1861 at age 77; Marriage: Emanuel Becher; Buried: New Holland: Seltenreich Reformed Church, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Other names for Elenor were Eleanora, Ellen and Ellenor. The 1820 Census for Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania records Emanuel Becher (indexed as Emanuel Bichard at ancestry.com) as head of a household with the following: 1 male (>45), 196

201 2 male (10-16), 1 male (<10), 1 female (>45), 1 female (26-45), 4 females (<10). The 1830 Census for Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania records Emanuel Becher as head of a household with the following: 1 male (50-60), 1 male (15-20), 1 male (10-15), 1 male (5-10), 1 male (<5), 1 female (70-80), 1 female (40-50), 2 females (15-20). The 1840 Census for Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania records Manuel Becher as head of a household with the following: 1 male (60-70), 1 male (10-15), 1 female (50-60). Next door is son, Jacob Becher and family. The 1850 Census for Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, page 204B records Emanuel Becher (74 - PA), carpenter, with his wife Elloner (67 - Maryland) and daughter Emma (34). Emanuel's real estate was valued at $700. Also in this household are John Becher (23 - PA), tailor, probably Emanuel's son, his wife, Ann, (22 - PA) and Eliza (1). Elloner was born in Maryland, the others in Pennsylvania... the 1900 census will record Daniel Becher's parents being born in PA & Maryland... see genral notes for Daniel Becher. Ine the 1860 Census for Leacock Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania: Several Becher households are found in Leacock Township: Nicholas Becher, farmer, 56, was living with Jacob Becher, 58; Elizabeth Becher, 47; and Eliza E. Becher, 10. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania. Nicholas has real estate valued at $1,500 and possessions worth $500. Next door is: Daniel Becher, shoemaker, 37, was living with his wife Susannah, 35; Andrew, 12; Sarah Ann, 10; Daniel, 4 months when the census was recorded on 13 Jun Also in the home: Ellen Becher, 78 (This appears to be Daniel's mother), John Hoey, shoemaker, 54; and John Weaver, auctioneer, 37. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania. Daniel's real estate was worth $1,600 and possessions $250. Living between Nicholas and Daniel was Reuben Graff, laborer, 24, and wife Lydia A., 24. Lydia may be a Becher by birth? This Ellen Becher appears to be the same Elloner Becher listed in 1850 as the wife of Emanuel, however, the father of Nicholas Becher appears to be John Becher: Census, 1850, Leacock Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has Nicholas Becher, farmer, 45, was living with Jacob Becher, 47; Elizabeth Becher, 39; and Mary Becher, 35. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania. Nicholas' real estate was worth $1,400. However, if you look at the 1840 Federal Census for Leacock, Lancaster Co., PA you will find a John Becher as head of household that contains: 1 male (50-60) [John], 2 males (30-40) [looks to me like it could be Nicholas and Jacob as described above in the 1850 census record], and 2 females (20-30) [looks to me like it could be Elizabeth and Mary as described above in the 1850 census record] Not to mention that both census records are in Leacock Township. Of course this implies that Jacob's father is John and not Emanuel... The Jacob Becher listed with Nicholas is most likely: Jacob W. Becher Born: 23 Nov 1802, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Died: 18 Mar 1872 at age 69 Buried: New Holland: Seltenreich Reformed Church, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Most likely, the Ellen Becher listed above is an aunt to Nicholas and Jacob Becher and mother of Daniel and the widow of Emanuel Becher [mother of Jacob Becher, father of Emma Becher, wife of Sylvester Rannels]. Emanuel married Ellenor Chesney. Children from this marriage were: Isaac Becher was born on 7 Aug 1806 in Lancaster Co., PA and died in 1873 in Lima Township, LaGrange County, Indiana at age i Jacob Becher 197

Becher was born on 23 Oct 1826 in Lancaster Co., PA, died on 7 Jul 1906 in Lancaster Co., PA at age 79, and was buried in Seltenreich Reformed Church, New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Ellenor Chesney was born on 5 Sep 1783 in Westminister, Cecil County, Maryland, died on 7 Apr 1861 in Lancaster Co., PA at age 77, and was buried in Seltenreich Reformed Church, New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

At his death, in estate papers filed in 1811, John Myer and Abraham Beyers are listed as adjoining land owners. Finding the subject of this study is somewhat difficult in that Henry Cremer/Cramer/Kremer/Creamer appears many times in York Co. Finding known neighbors of our subject could help determine the correct Henry Cremer finds John Myers and Abraham Beyer living next to or near our subject. Also nearby is Jacob Kline. I will thus try to follow these people through different census years in order to establish the correct census record for our subject. Henry Cremer, John Myers, Abraham Beyers, and Jacob Kline appear near each other through several census years. The 1800 census below shows such a connection (families) in Manheim Township of York Co. but they are not the correct subjects. This is described here only to show the difficulty in finding our particular subject.

Research Notes: Date: Sat, 30 Jul :27: (EDT) From: Subject: Parkers To: Hi Bo, It was really great to hear from you again. It sounds like you and Mary Lou are quite busy. I have had a pretty good summer with some baby sitting because Carter in now working in Hampton. I am sorry, I have been so long answering your . I have been quite excited about finding out who our Parker was. As we know Edna (Edney) Goodman and David Parker were her parents as well as the parents of Parthania or Bethaney. Parthania was Randolph first wife. They lived in Gates County, NC. On 21 Feb 1820, the courts ordered that Administration on the estate of David Parker decd be granted to Abraham Parker. Edney was appointed guardian for Bethaney Parker and Christian. Edney later married David L. Milteer. I have all of these Court Order records. I have a Deed dated 18 Nov 1839 where 210

215 Randolph and Parthania Rawls are selling land being her part of lands of the late David Parker (DB 17,Pages Gates Co.) to John Rawls. I have a Deed dated 7 Aug 1841 where Randolph & Christian Rawls, his wife, and David Miltear and Edney, his wife, are selling her part of the lands of the late David Parker. This proves their parents and marriage to Randolph. David Parker's father was Kedar Parker and I have his will dated 15 July 1829, Probated August county court He gives money to my son David Parker's two daughters Thaney and Christian Parker. He served in the Revolutionary War and received a pension which I have records. We believe his father was William Parker, Sr. Will Book 1, P 50 Gates. I still want to do a little more research on that one. I really think this was a big find for us. If I find anything more, I will let you know. Please keep in touch.

Ava married David Law on 23 Dec 1790 in Pittsylvania Co., VA Henry Garrett was born circa 1750 and died after 1810 in Rockingham Co, NC. General Notes: A Henry Garrett is listed in the 1790, 1800, and 1810 Federal Census records of Rockingham County, N.C. 1790: Henry Garrott; Rockingham Co., NC, 1 white male 16 and over, 4 white males under 16, 1 white female including head of household (must be just Henry w/o a wife which agrees with 1906 letter from Poet Garrett), 0 all others, 0 slaves. 1800: Henry Garratt; Salisbury, Rockingham Co., NC. page 482, 3 males & 1 female under 10, 1 male aged 10-15, 2 males & 1 female aged 16-25, 1 male over 45, 1 female aged 26-44, no slaves (looks like Henry has a new wife). 1810: Henry Jarret [Garrett]; Rockingham Co., NC. page 33, 1 male & 1 female under 10, 2 males & 1 female aged 10-15, 3 males aged 16-25, 1 male over 45, 1 female 26-44, no slaves. 1820: The only Garrett (or Jarrett, etc...) listed in Rockingham Co., NC is James Garret: 2 free white males under 10, , , , , 0 45 and older / 2 free white females under 10, , , , 0 45 and older / 1 person engaged in agriculture, no slaves. These census records appear to indicate Henry was born around 1755 and according to Powhatan (Poet) Garrett's 1906 letter became a widower by By 1800 he had remarried a younger woman and had several children by her. Henry appears to have died or have left Rockingham Co. before These facts are consistent, with the exception of slaves, with the description of the family history given by Henry's grandson, Poet (Powhatan) Garrett in a 1906 letter to his nephew, James Garrett. See notes on Poet Garrett (son of James) for the transcription of his entire letter. In a 1906 letter to his nephew Jimmie P. Garrett, Poet (Powhatan) Garrett relates that his grand father [Henry Garrett] did not approve of his father's [James] marriage to Elizabeth Sims. He writes: "Well, Jimmie, I will now tell you what little that I know of the Garrett family. I do not remember of ever hearing our father saying anything of his family but one brother Joe that he said died on a boat on the 221

226 Mississippi River and was buried on the bank of that river and remember hearing him say that Joe was his favorite brother. He had four or five older brothers but if any sisters I never heard of them. I have heard my mother say that old Grandma Garrett died at the birth of father. Therefore father knew nothing of his mother but through hearsay. I was at grandmother's grave in She was buried on the bank of a creek that ran between our old homestead and your Pa's. The grave was fenced in with chestnut rails that were then almost washed away and carried off by hornets and wasps and I was told that those rails were the same that were put there at first and if so they had been there since from 1785 (or, 1789) in 1854 which would be about 69 (or, 65) years that these rails had lain there which is wonderful. Now I know nothing more of the [page 9828] family until after father was grown and began to.. to mother -- which old Grandpa was very much opposed to [the marriage] and told father that if he married that Simms girl that he would cut him off intirely and never give him a cent. At that time, mother said, Grandpa Garrett was well off and had a good many negroes and soon after she and father married he sold all his land and went to Tennessee somewhere near Nashville and that was the last they ever know of them." (see notes on his sons, James and Joe) Henry married Sarah "Sallie" Starling. Children from this marriage were: 240 James Garrett19 i Joe Garrett 481. Sarah "Sallie" Starling died circa 1789 in Rockingham Co, NC. General Notes: (see notes on her sons, James and Joe) Sarah married Henry Garrett Thomas Henry Sims20 was born on 24 Apr 1758 in Culpeper Co., VA. and died on 9 May 1831 in VA. at age 73. General Notes: In a 1906 letter to his nephew Jimmie P. Garrett, Poet (Powhatan) Garrett writes "Well, the history I have of the Sims family (Poet's mother's family) is not very good but such as I have I will give it to you but would not to everyone. Old Grandpa Thomas Sims was I guess a good old man himself but raised a hard lot of children -- had.. girls and three boys. He, I have heard mother say, was at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis and saw him hand General Washington his sword.... old Grandpa Sims was a strong old time primitive Baptist. I have heard mother say he would sit for hours and read his Bible and the tears would run down his cheeks."

228 Amy married Thomas Henry Sims20 about 1786 in Culpeper Co., VA Burwell Hagood was born about 1776 and died about 1848 about age 72. General Notes: The Hagood surname has the following variations in many Caswell Co., North Carolina records: Haygood, Hagwood, Hagewood, Haywood. An 1880 census taker in Pittsylvania Co., Va. writes Hegwood. According to a book on Hagoods in the Salt Lake Library: The name Hagood has many spellings. If, as seems likely, it is derived from the English name Hawkwood, then the first immigrant to America with this family name was Francis Hawkwood who arrived in Virginia from England in He settled first in Charles City County, probably in the area which is now Prince George County. Here he was issued a land patent on 12 August Francis Hogwood (spelled on early records this way) camed to America unmarried and married Elizabeth Creed, daughter of Ralph and Grace Creed. Francis was accused of murder in 1661, but the accusation seems to have been dropped. About this time, Francis moved a few miles east into Surry Co. He was definitely there by 4 July His will was probated in Surry Co. in will of Francis Hodgood. It was dated 3 Jan 1676 and proven 18 May He was apparently preceded in death by his wife Elizabeth. Children--Francis (died in infancy), Richard b. abt 1650, d. 1678; William; George, b. abt 1670; Frances. Burwell Hagood is most likely a decendent of the above family. The first records for Burwell appear in Halifax Co., Va. in the 1790s. Halifax Co., Va. marriage records indicate Burwell Hagood married Sally Irby Feb 10, A Caswell Co., N.C. Land Deed records a transaction on Oct. 7, 1830: Nathan Duncan to Burwell Hagood, $157 for 42 acres on Pumpkin Creek, John Humphries line. Wit. Thomas Hagood, John Hagood, John (X) Duncan. There is a service record for the War of 1812 for Burwell Hagood listed as a private in the 3rd reginent of (Dickensons) Virginia Militia... this may be the same Burwell. It is clear that our Burwell Hagood and family moved into Caswell Co., North Carolina in the early 1800s. He and wife Sally raised a family many of whom eventually moved back into Virginia in Pittsylvania Co. The Burwell Hagood will is located in the Clerk's Office of the Superior Court of N.C. in Caswell Co., N.C., Book Q, Page 48, Year:1848. By census records, his wife, Sally, apears to have died before The will names his children: James, Thomas, John, and Nancy. There is a Nancy Hagood living with James in the 1850, 1860, and 1870 census records. In 1850 there is a Nancy that appears to be the wife of James. In 1860 Nancy Hagood appears at the end of the family listing and could be his sister. The 1820 Federal Census, Caswell Co., N.C. records Burwel Hagood (45+), Lewis Hagwood (16-26), Ransom Hagwood (45+), and John Hagwood (26-45 with two daughters under 5 and a wife 20-30). The 1830 Federal Census, Caswell Co., N.C. records Burwell Hagwood (50-60, with a wife of the same age), Lewis Hagwood (30-40), and John Hagwood (30-40). The 1840 Federal Census, Caswell Co., N.C. records Burwell Hagood (60-70, apparently with no wife) and two females (20-30). On the same page is James Hagood (30-40). A few pages over is John Hagood (40-50). A Caswell Co. record has Lewis Hagood married to Martha Jackson on April 7, Lewis may or may not be a relative of Burwell. Actually, it appears that Ransom, John, and Lewis Hagwood are a different family from Burwell Hagood. The 1820 census records Ransom, Lewis, and John Hagood living near each other and in 1830 Lewis and John are listed on the same page of the census. The census records list Burwell Hagood with 3 sons and one daughter of ages that fit with the

229 James, Thomas, John, and Nancy Hagoods. Burwell married Sally Irby on 10 Feb 1796 in Halifax County, Virginia. Children from this marriage were: 246 James Hagood i Thomas Hagood was born about 1807 in Virginia and died after 1860 in Pittsylavania Co., VA.. ii John Hagood was born about 1809 in Virginia and died circa 1858 in Rockingham Co., N.C. about age 49. iv. Nancy Hagood was born about 1812 in Virginia Sally Irby. General Notes: The 1850 Federal Census of Caswell Co., N.C. records a Sarah B. Irby (39) living with Nancy Hagood (38) and John Hagood (41). Next door is James Hag(w)ood (44) and family. Note that Burwell Hagood was married to a Sally Irby in Halifax, Va. in I believe this Sarah Irby must be related to Burwell's deceased wife. Sally married Burwell Hagood on 10 Feb 1796 in Halifax County, Virginia John Blackwell, son of William Blackwell and Mary Marshall, was born about 1745 in Hanover Co., VA. and died about 1817 in Granville Co., N.C. about age 72. General Notes: This may be the Capt. John Blackwell who served in the 3rd Virginia Regiment of the Continental Army in the American Revolution. Other family members Lt. Col. John Webb and Lt. James Smith also served in this regiment with Capt. John Blackwell. They also moved to Granville Co. after the war. All pension records of this Capt. John Blackwell were destroyed in a fire and no information is available regarding his family. The 1790 NC Census lists no John Blackwells living in Granville Co. However, the AIS Census Report for the years lists a John Blackwell in Granville. We may assume that John relocated between 1791 and John's father-in-law, John Pomfret, moved to Granville from King William County between 1782 and On 1 June 1787, in Hanover Co., John Pomfrett "of Granville County, North Carolina" assigned Christopher Tompkins to be his attorney in King William County, Virginia. The witnesses were Ambrose Edwards and John Blackwell. We assume this John Blackwell was Pomfret's son-in-law who was still in Virginia at the time. John married Francis (Mary Ann) Pomfret. Children from this marriage were: Pomfret Blackwell was born circa 1767 in Hanover Co., VA. and died circa 1828 in Granville Co., N.C. at age 61. i Ann Blackwell was born circa 1769 in Hanover Co., VA. and died circa 1816 in Green Co., GA at age 47. ii John Blackwell Jr. was born circa 1770 in Hanover Co., VA.. iv. Samuel Blackwell was born circa 1772 in Hanover Co., VA v.

230 497. Francis (Mary Ann) Pomfret, daughter of John Pomfret and Ann Hunt, was born on 7 Aug 1747 in King William Co., Va. and died after 1818 in Granville (Now Vance) Co., N.C.. Francis married John Blackwell William Marshall. William married Mary Wortham. The child from this marriage was: 249 Elizabeth (Betsy) Dixon Marshall 499. Mary Wortham. Mary married William Marshall John Webb, son of James Webb and Mary Edmonson, was born on 8 Jan 1747 in Essex Co., VA., died on 29 Aug 1826 in Oak Hill, Granville Co., NC at age 79, and was buried in Oak Hill, Granville Co., NC. General Notes: Lt. John Webb served in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. John Webb was a Captain of the 4th Company of the 7th Virginia Regiment, raised March 5, Muster rolls exist from Dec to Nov (National Archives) which chart his career. His company was originally commanded by Col. Alexander McClenahan, under Gen. William Woodford, in George Washington's army. The 7th Regiment joined Washington at Morristown in January, 1777,where they suffered due to a lack of tents. They were nearly destroyed at Brandywine in September, John Webb was promoted to Major on Jan 26, He was at Valley Forge until March, 1778 when all the officers of the 7th went on furlough to Virginia. There are pay warrants from the Board of War to Capt. Webb of the 7th Regiment, dated March 27 and 28, 1778, for recruiting services and travel/mileage. It is presumed the officers of the 7th were recruiting in Virginia. He had returned by July when the musters were taken at WhitePlains. At the Arrangement at White Plains, Sept. 14, 1778, the 7th Virginia Regiment was renamed the 5th, and John Webb was thus transferred to the 5th Regiment. Muster rolls "of the Field Officers of the 5th Virginia Regiment", written by Maj. John Webb, exist for Nov 1778 through Nov A"Return of the 5th and 11th Virginia Regiments, commanded by Col., as reviewed by the Inspector General May 25, 1779", written by Baron Von Steuben, states, "All the Field Officers Except Major Webb are in Virginia...This regiment is in great disorder, and if more Officers are not put to it, will be entirely ruined." Various muster rolls place him at Smith's Clove, Ramapough, Haverstraw, and Morristown. July 4, 1779 he was made Lt. Colonel. After Nov 1779, the 5th Regiment was combined with the 1st Regiment and sent south. Many of its officers were captured at Charlestown, South Carolina, in May Feb12, 1781, the 5th VA became a "paper regiment" as a result of the Chesterfield Court House arrangement and remained so until it was dissolved in Jan Thus, John Webb was "retired" as of Feb 12, When on Jan 27, 1783 a certificate for his final pay was given, it was received by a family friend, Capt. Henry Young. By this time, John had moved his family to Granville Co., North Carolina. On Jan. 1, 1782, John Webb purchased 316 acres in Granville Co. from his brother-in-law, Philip Vass. His home was two miles north of Oak Hill (a photo of this house can be seen in Our Webb Kin of Dixie). When he left Virginia, he broke with the Anglican Church and became an elder in the Grassy Creek Presbyterian Congregation [in Granville Co., NC]. In 1822 he was one of the founders of a new congregation nearer his home, Spring Grove Church. John died Aug 29,1826. At his widow's memorial service, Rev. Rankin said of John Webb, "The venerable child of God (John) was wont to go up with the people of God here to the house of worship. Then this neighborhood felt the healthful influence of his candid, honest intercourse, of his firm uncompromising adherence to fixed principles of action." A granddaughter of John and Amy Webb, Frances M. Bumpas, remembered, "He was a man of the strictest integrity; plain in his manners; he thought and acted candidly, was remarkable for his firmness of character. His actions were governed by fixed principles. Though his heart was sympathetic, he never permitted feeling to interfere with duty." (Our Webb Kin, p.43) 226

235 Tenth Generation (7th Great-Grandparents) 768. John Hagen was born about 1773 in Pennsylvania, 1 died on 13 Mar 1825 in Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA about age 52, and was buried in Clark's Family Burying Ground next to Mount Nebo Preysyterian Church. General Notes: The 1825 Estate Inventory for John Hagen is appraised by Valentine Gardner and John Clark. A copy of this document was indexed as: AN INDEX TO THE WILL BOOKS AND INTESTATE RECORDS OF LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA INDEX to the INTESTATE RECORDS OF LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA page 72 / Name: Hager, John [while indexed as HAGER, the document is clearly written using HAGEN and names both his wife, Martha, and son, Joshua] Year: 1825 / Book: C / Volume: 1 / Page: 31 A copy of a page from the John & Martha Hagen Family Bible (publication date of 1833) in the possession of John Wesley Hagen (of Parkesburg, Chester Co., PA April 2008) records "John Hagen Ser departed this Life March the 13, 1825 aged 52 years. [Original Bible in possession of Wilma Fauth Jones as of Nov 2008] Record of Births In November 2008 Wilma Fauth Jones, great grand daughter of Samuel Alexander, sent several pictures of various Hagen Family heirlooms including the Family Bible. (Date Published: 1833) Census records indicate that Valentine Gardner and John Clark are neighbors and friends and the niece or daughter of John Clark marries Albert Hagen, grandson of John Hagen. The apparent son of Valentine Gardner, also named Valentine, remains a neighbor of the Hagens with Elijah Hagen, son of John, naming a son of his Valentine Hagen. Early records indicate John as a Forgeman, Blacksmith, and Axe Maker of note. His sons carried on the tradition for many years. The last of the Hagen line to remain in Martic Township was Kate Hagen who died in January of Kate was the daughter of Elijah and grand daughter of John Hagen, and never married. After her parents died she lived with her uncle Joshua Hagen until his death in The text below is from a book written in 1883 (History of Martic Township from / History of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania / with Biographical Sketches / of Many of the Pioneers and Prominent Men. / by Franklin Ellis and Samuel Evans. / Philadelphia: / Everts & Peck / 1883 / Chapter LXVI / Martic Township); however, it mentions neither George nor Enoch Hagen as sons of John Hagen. And while John's son, George Hagen, carried on the Blacksmith/Axe Maker trade, at the time of publication, George Hagen had been dead for over 40 years and his wife and children long gone from the Martic area. Enoch seems to have not followed in the Blacksmith tradition of the family and had moved from the area around 1860 and is thus omitted. The last surviving son of John Hagen, Joshua Hagen, had just died when the author was gathering facts on the Hagen family of Martic Township for the publication. In the section "The Hagen Axe-Factory", the author refers to Joshua as the "oldest son" of John Hagen when Joshua was actually the second son, an understandable but unfortunate error uncovered after extensive research on this family by the author of this document. The only other children of John and Martha to be mentioned in this book are Elijah and Davis. Hopefully the efforts of this researcher will place George Hagen at his proper position in the family for all researchers in the future. The History of Martic Township from the book History of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of Many of the Pioneers and Prominent Men by Franklin Ellis and Samuel Evans Philadelphia: Everts & Peck 1883 Chapter LXVI - Martic Township relates the following: "Closely identified with the history of Mount Nebo is the Hagen family. For the last sixty-five years the name has been prominent in every enterprise, and they are numbered among the most valuable citizens of the village. Joshua Hagen (recently deceased), the eldest son of John Hagen, was a man of note, holding a number of positions of honor and trust. [Research has shown that the 231

236 eldest son was George who died some 40 years prior to the publication of this book.] Though never married he was a householder all his life, and was noted for his hospitality and enterprising spirit. Davis Hagen, who learned the trade of axe-making with his brother Joshua, spent the greater portion of his life in this village working at his trade, which he taught to his five boys; viz: Henry Bascom, John, Albert, Davis and William. Of these five sons John is at present working at blacksmithing in Rawlinsville, William is carrying on axe-making in Mount Nebo, and Albert is engaged at his trade (blacksmithing) in this village, and at present is a member of the board of prison inspectors of Lancaster County. Tax collector Joshua Hagen collected the first school tax levied in the township. The Hagen Axe-Factory: A third industry for which this township is noted, and which is peculiarly a child of the township, was the manufacture of the celebrated "Hagen Axe." The exact date at which the manufacture of this instrument was commenced is not definitely known. John Hagen, the grandfather of the present Hagen family in this section was the first person of the name who manufactured these axes in this township. He died before this oldest son, Joshua, was of age. This son learned the trade and taught it to his two brothers, Davis and Elijah. Elijah Hagen discontinued the trade, but David continued to work at the business until within a short time of his death. He taught the art to his five sons, Bascom, John, Albert, Davis and William. These descendants of the pioneers of this business continue the manufacture of the Hagen Axe in the neighborhood of Mount Nebo at the present day."

He appears in the 1850 Federal Census for Lancaster Co., PA, page 350 with his wife Catherine (b ca 1815 in PA). Conrad's occupation is listed as Edge Tool Maker. Brady appears to reference William Brady (b ca 1819 in PA). He appears in the 1860 Federal Census for Mount Joy Borough, Lancaster Co., PA, page 789, with his wife Ann (b ca 1821 in PA) and children Henry O. (b ca 1841), Annie (b ca 1852), William (b ca 1850), Jane (b ca 1854), and Mary E. Brady (b ca 1856). William's occupation is listed as Edge Tool Maker and he has real estate valued at $18,000 and a personal estate valued at $7,000. The 1800 Federal Census for Martick [Martic] Township, Lancaster Co., PA records John Heagan with 1 male (26 to 44), 1 male (10-15), 1 female (16-25), 2 females (under 10). While children's ages do not match what is expected, the relative position of this family to later census records indicates it is the correct family. There is a John Heable family in 1800 in Martic but does not fit the proper location nor does he appear in later census records. The 1810 Federal Census for Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA records John Higgins with 1 male (26-44) [John], 2 males (<10) [John & Joshua], 1 male (10-15) [George], 1 female (26-44) [Martha], 1 female (under 10) [Hannah]. Since no other females are listed it is supposed that Mariah has died. The 1820 Federal Census for Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA records John Higgins with 1 male (>45) [John], 2 males (<10) [Davis & Enoch], 1 male (10-16) [Joshua], 1 male (16-18) [John], 1 male (16-26) [George], 1 female (26-45) [Martha], 2 females (under 10) [Mary & Abigail], 1 female (10-16) 232

Research Notes: The 1820 Federal Census for Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA is hard to read but appears to indicate John Higgins [Hagen] with 5 sons and 4 daughters. The 1830 Federal Census for Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA records the widow Martha Hagens with 4 sons and 2 daughters. Next door is George Hagens with 2 sons and 1 daughter (all under 10). The 1840 Federal Census for Martic Township, Lancaster Co., PA records the Martha Hagen families: George Hagen with 5 sons and 1 daughter and a wife Joshua Hagen with 5 other adults, 2 males, 3 females one of which is years old. It appears that Joshua is living in his mother's home with 2 of his brothers (Enoch and Elijah) and 2 of his sisters. Davis Hagen with 1 son and a wife (1 other male age could be that Elijah shared time between to the households). The paragraphs below give a possible ancestry to John Hagen, maker of the Hagen Ax.

Excerpt from the History of Lancaster County by Dr. Frederick Klein, 1924 The first settlement of Martic township was in the northern sections, along the Pequea creek. Matthias Kreider is considered the first settler, and while the date of his coming is not definitely determined, one record seeming to seek to assert that he was in the region as early as 1691, there is not good reason to set his coming into Martic township earlier than about The majority of the early settlers in Martic were Germans, from Hesse-Darmstadt. Matthias Kreider settled on the southern bank of the Pequea, a little to the northward of the village of Marticville. He purchased two hundred acres of land, the consideration being one shilling an acre, "or one cord of wood for every acre of land." He paid in wood, it is said, but how he transported it is not clear. Soon, others settled nearby, fellow-countrymen-the Goods, Hubers, Warfels, Hares (Herr), and Millers; later the Sweigarts, Eshlemans and Shanks came in. The Good family settled south and west of the village of Martic- Ville. The section of the township along the Susquehanna river south of the mouth of the Pequea was settled by Scotch-Irish emigrants, the Clarks, McCrearys and Reeds coming in the early decades of the eighteenth century, they and the Neels (Neils) taking up nearly all the land from the river to and including what became known as Mt. Nebo. Noted events in his life were: He worked as a Forgeman, Axe Maker. Maker of the "Famous" Hagen Axe (in the early 1800s). John married Martha. 234

244 Date: Wed, 07 May :06: From: Subject: Re: Daughtrey family history To: Bo Hi there! I believe Jasper and Eli are related also. Robert's father was J. James Daughtrey (1765 to 1833) per his original will. J. James Daughtrey was the son of Robert Daughtrey ( ) who was married to Charity?. There were four sons J. James, John, Elias (?Eli) and Thomas. This Elias was born around This is also from an original will. Robert's father was John Daughtrey, born around 1720 and died around This is also from an original will. Only the oldest male child received the birthright of the land from the father. Therefore, J. James received the property and handed it down to his son Robert (grandson of Robert and great grandson of John). The other 3 brothers may have lived on land but not owned it or have bought land nearby as families usually stayed together. Does any of this sound familiar to you? Best wishes, Sally John married Elizabeth. Children from this marriage were: 422 Thomas (Tommie) Daughtrey i John Daughtrey was born in Isle of Wight Co., VA. ii Robert Daughtrey was born circa 1745 and died circa 1795 at age 50. iv.

General Notes: Rawls family tradition records that around 1734, John Rawls built a home he named "Somerton Hall" within the bounds of several land grants of his father, William Rawls. John's son David died before his grandson, Andrew, became of age. David's brother, John Jr., was appointed Andrew's guardian. Upon John Jr.'s death, Andrew received that portion of the estate containing "Somerton Hall". At Andrew's death, this portion of the estate was devised to Andrew's son, Andrew Jackson Rawls. In 1883, A.J. deeded it to his son Charles L. Rawls.

General Notes: from: Minters of Henry County by Donald W. Chamberlayne : Minter Notes Notes Pertaining to Some Descendants of Anthony Minter of Caroline County, Virginia (Link) <minchart.htm> last updated May 20, 2007 compiled by Donald W. Chamberlayne 1 Progenitors <minchart.htm> Anthony and Elizabeth Minter of Caroline County, Va. A major source of documentary evidence regarding Anthony and his family, probably the major source, is the work of Dorotha Riddle Marsh, on the descendants of William Julius Riddle, an immigrant to Virginia from Scotland, and his wife Nancy Elizabeth (Minter) Riddle. In 1981 she published Branches of One Riddle Family Tree, and in 1987 a supplemental volume of source documents drawn from court records of several counties that were integral to her research. (Citation in list of sources <sources.htm>). For persons lacking access to the hard-to-find Marsh volumes, this compiler included, descendency listings by others citing her work have been crucial. Especially valuable has been the work of June Bowman, posted online through the webpages of a group of her family members under the heading "Dellinger, Mallory & Others" at Ancestry.com. Mrs. Bowman and her nephew Marvin Dellinger constitute the persons to contact <sources.htm> for anyone wishing to pursue this line further. Drawing from "Dellinger, Mallory & Others," with reference to Marsh's book on the Riddles, the fundamental source of information concerning Anthony Minter and his family is his will, which was "presented in court 14 Nov 1751 by Elizabeth Minter." [Marsh, 1981, B2, p.259]. Except for daughter Nancy Elizabeth, the dates of birth for Anthony and his children, where known, are also from the will [June Bowman, , Jan ]. Presumably this is also the source of the name Elizabeth as his wife. Anthony's date of birth is said to have been "about 1685." The Dellinger-Mallory listings also say that Anthony is thought to have moved to Caroline County "about 1730." If true, this casts doubt on Caroline County as the birthplace of his children, as has been stated in a number of places. Listings posted by Minter researchers have identified as many as eight children of Anthony and 253

258 Elizabeth. Presumably, most of their names appeared in their father's will, and perhaps in other records as well. Eight are included here, but substantiation is incomplete, and most of what is known apparently derives from the research by Marsh. The single greatest deficiency in the available information on the family, at least as is known to this researcher, is that his wife we know only as Elizabeth. Not even her maiden name is known, much less anything of her origins. Descendants of Anthony and Elizabeth Minter 2A <minchart.htm> Nancy Elizabeth (Minter) Riddle Nancy's approximate date of birth, "about 1713," is from June Bowman, who cites a Mr. John M. Jordan who is no longer reachable at the address given. From William and Nancy (Minter) Riddle an extensive descendancy has been traced and can be examined at Ken Storm's website <sources.htm> (See Note 1 above). Nancy is said to have died "about 1787" (K.Storm, documentary source unknown). 2C <minchart.htm> John Oliver Minter By all known accounts, John Oliver Minter [2], the second son of Anthony and Elizabeth, was born in Where he was born is unknown but very likely he grew up in Caroline County. About the late 1740s, he married Elizabeth Michaux Morgan of Cumberland County. Her ancestry traced to the early Jamestown era on her father's side and to Amsterdam and France, via the Huguenot exodus from France of the late 17th century, on her mother's side. An account of this lineage by this author was published in December, 2006 in a Minter family newsletter described below. According to Dellinger, John bought land in Cumberland County in 1763, and in a court document there in 1769, his wife Elizabeth and three children were mentioned. John acquired a 54-acre tract in Bedford County, the deed dated August 27, 1770 (copy courtesy of Bob White). In 1772 he moved to Chatham County, NC where he purchased 500 acres from his nephew, Jeremiah Minter, son of Anthony, Jr. One of the sons of John and Elizabeth was Joseph [3], born about 1750 in Cumberland. Joseph moved as a young man with his family about 1772 to Chatham County, NC, where he married Frances "Fannie" Hill. A son of Joseph and Fannie was John Morgan Minter [4], born in 1792, who married Dorothy Brooks Mathis. They settled in Georgia, first in Hancock County and later in Marion County where he was a representative to both houses of the Georgia legislature. In 1855, some three years after his wife's passing, John and some of his grown children moved to Hopkins County, Texas. He died the following year, but two of his sons remained in what became known as the "Pine Forest" area (about 20 miles east of Dallas), and from them has descended an extensive and highly "connected" family who call themselves the "Minters of Pine Forest." This family network is connected through "The Minters of Pine Forest Family Association" and its extraordinary newsletter, "News of the Minters of Pine Forest," and through a family website which includes photographs, family news and history, anecdotes, remembrances, and the like, as well as an outline of a book in progress on the history of the family. The prime mover behind all this is a descendant of one of two brothers, Thomas J. Minter [9], of Ohio. A good place to start to learn more about this line is < 2D <minchart.htm> Richard Minter Richard Minter [2], third son of Anthony and Elizabeth of Caroline County, is said to have been born about The original, best source on this date, however, is not known, although it likely was Marsh. What is believed to be true of this line comes primarily from two descendants of Richard: Ken Storm [9], and Jim Taylor [7], as well as the Dellinger-Mallory group, whose principal source was Marsh. Richard married Martha Scruggs, June 27, 1757, in Goochland County, Va. [Marsh, p.262]. Also, he "bought land in Cumberland Co., Va. in March 1765 & remained in Va. In his will, on file in Powhatan Co., Va., he named his brother Anothony Minter as Administrator of his estate." [Marsh via DellingerMallory group] Again from Marsh, his death is said to have been "about 1785" in Powhatan County. Ken Storm lists four children, one of whom was given the name Scruggs, his birth date some time after About 1810, Scruggs Minter married Catherine Anderson, whose year of birth, according to Storm, was "about 1787," which implies that Scruggs was considerably older than his wife. They and many of their descendants farmed in Fluvanna County, Va., adjacent to and west of Cumberland County. A son of Scruggs and Catherine was Willis Scruggs Minter [4], born The 1850 census listed 254

259 him as age 30, a cooper by occupation, "Willis S." Minter by name. Later censuses gave his occupation as farmer. Willis married twice and had two families of considerable size. His first wife, Lucy Ann Anderson, born , bore six children. After her death about 1874, Willis married Mariah Louisa Baltimore, of Fluvanna County, who was born in 1852, and was thus considerably younger than her husband. There were seven children born of this marriage. The second oldest of them was Katie B. Minter [5], born in 1879, who was the grandmother of Jim Taylor of Virginia, the person to contact <sources.htm> for further discussion and exchange of information on this line. Jim is nearing completion of a book on his family and its ancestry (as of January, 2007). 2G <minchart.htm> Joseph Minter Joseph Minter, born probably about 1730, married Anna Mariah Gooch of Caroline County. They resided for a time in Granville County, NC, and eventually settled in South Carolina in the area which became Edgefield County, near Columbia and Augusta. Among several strong Internet-based sources on this line, and the Gooch family in general, is < From this source: "Anna Mariah married first Joseph Minter, probably in Caroline County, Virginia. The loss of records in Caroline obscures further information on this topic; however, the presence of an Anthony Minter in Caroline suggest that Joseph had kin in that county and we know from the Caroline Order Book and her father's will that Anna Mariah's family came from Caroline." 2BTrunkLine <minchart.htm>anthony Minter, Jr. A copy of the will of Anthony, Jr. was made available by Becky Whittemore of Utah, whose contributions regarding her branch of the Minter family are discussed in Note 4H. Dated January 27, 1808, proven in court in Cumberland County October 21, 1812, the will identified nine children, five of them still living in 1808, plus several grandchildren, and at least one great-grandson. It also listed twenty-one slaves bequeathed by Anthony to his children or their heirs. Regarding Anthony's real property, the will called for the executors to "rent out to the best advantage my tract of land and Plantation where on I now live together with my Distilary for the benefit and Support of my son Jeremiah Minter during his natural life..." That Anthony may not have known where his son Jeremiah was at the time was implied in a stipulation concerning the action to take if he, the son Jeremiah, failed to appear to claim his inheritance: Item: my will and desire is that if my son Jeremiah Minter does not come in and call for his legacy as here to fore mentioned in this my will and testament in the course of Eighteen months then my Executors is to sell my land and plantation and distribute the money arising there from... [to other beneficiaries]. And should Jeremiah call after the Expiration of the Eighteen months before mentioned his heirs then to receive fifty pounds only out of my Estate." Dellinger cites evidence (apparently from Marsh via Bowman) that Jeremiah bought land in Chatham County from his sister Nancy and her husband, William Julius Riddle, in 1769, then sold it to his uncle, John Oliver Minter, three years later. He also says Jeremiah never married, that he served for a time in the local militia, that a court of Chatham County in 1791 declared him insane, and that he was so declared again in 1804, which was several years before his father's will was written. Anthony's only other living son, John, of Henry County, was bequeathed "...my Bay horse Saddle and bridle," and of him there is no further mention. Anthony appointed as executors of his will "... my son Jeremiah Minter my two sons in law William Leake and Tarleton Layne and my grandson Gabriel Minter..." Thus, John was not named as an executor while Jeremiah was, despite the matter of his "insanity," as well as the question of whether he would appear to claim his legacy. According to Storm, another son of Anthony and Elizabeth, named Gabriel, married Nancy Thrailkill, and they had a son, Gabriel, Jr., who married Nancy Cosby and was the grandson Gabriel named as one of the executors of Anthony's will. A son of Gabriel, Jr. was the great-grandson, Josiah Minter, mentioned in Anthony's will. The first Gabriel was not identified in the will, presumably because he was deceased. The date of Anthony's birth, "about 1715," has been attributed to Dorotha Riddle Marsh by Dellinger and others (Note 1). This date puts him at about 97 when he died in According to Marsh (via those who cited her), there were a number of land transactions between Minters and Riddles, as well as a marriage which led to a very large descendancy [K.Storm], that of Nancy Elizabeth Minter, eldest daughter of Anthony and Elizabeth Minter, to William Julius Riddle, an immigrant from Scotland, born 255

260 about Numerous Minter researchers have quoted (or paraphrased) the same lines, apparently from Marsh, as follows: Anthony [Jr.] bought land in Cumberland Co., Va. in Nov 1749, then went to Chatham Co. NC where he purchased 148 acres of land by Cape Fear River in Dec 1771 from James Riddle & wife Temperance & James Riddle's mother Elizabeth Riddle. While Anthony engaged in land transactions in North Carolina, and some of his children, as well as his siblings, relocated there, it is not clear that he ever resided there, and later documents show him in Cumberland County or, after 1777, in the newly-formed Powhatan County. His will assigned land in North Carolina to the heirs of his son William, who had been in possession of it prior to his death about 1796 (the date of his will). Thus, it seems reasonable to presume that Anthony purchased the land for his son, who presumably took charge of it about 1772 or soon thereafter, suggesting that he might have "come of age" about that time, and thus was likely born about the mid-1750s. Again from the Dellinger-Mallory group [Marsh], during the Revolution, Anthony "furnished beef, wheat, & flour to troops," and in 1788 he "signed an oath" in Powhatan County indicating his support of the Constitution of the United States (e., voted to ratify). The major question remaining in regard to Anthony Minter, Jr. pertains to his wife, Elizabeth Jane, whose maiden surname is unknown. It can only be hoped that any reader knowing anything about her will get in touch and help us out. Perhaps further research in Caroline County, if not already exhausted, might tell us something about her, but it is possible that any historical record of her is among the lost documents of the time.

262 HISTORY OF SOME OLD ROCKINGHAM HOMES AND FAMILIES In 1950, my grandmother, Anne Pearl Pratt Van Noppen, published a series of articles in The Messenger on historic homes along the Dan River in Rockingham County, North Carolina. She followed this series with an additional series of articles about other historic homes of Rockingham County. In addition to details about the homes themselves, she included genealogical facts about the families who lived in these homes. I am typing these articles to place on the NC GENWEB archives in the hope that they will be useful to those researching some of these families. GREEN VALLEY THREE OAKS FARM THE OAKS WRIGHT-REID HOUSE WALL-CARDWELL HOME MEBANE-SHAFFER HOUSE WALLREYNOLDS HOME THE CEDARS GOVERNOR REID'S PLANTATION MOUNT PLEASANT WALL-REYNOLDS HOME "Wall Street" they call it, the few miles of country road between Morton's Store on the Winston-Salem highway and Beaver Island Township on the Pine Hall-Sandy Ridge Road. The name brings a smile when those who know the original Wall Street consider the contrast between them - Wall Street I with its dull gray old buildings, so tall as to cause the dark narrow street to resemble a canyon, where there are fortunes made and lost almost daily and Wall Street II with its long stretches of tobacco and corn bordering the sunny road, where work is slow and profit the same, where there are occasionally stately groves in which, far back from the road, are the homes of the Wall family. At one time all the homes along the road belonged to members of the Wall clan, this giving rise to the name "Wall Street". These homes, chiefly of the old period, are interesting architecturally, having distinction and originality and speaking in eloquent terms of the pride, prosperity and good taste of the Walls. The first record of Zachariah Wall, born May 29, 1741, is that he was the son of Robert Wall, married Annie Everett, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Everette, both Zachariah and his wife having been natives of the eastern shore of Maryland. With their family, and probably others, they moved to Rockingham County in the vicinity of Madison in 1797, where Zachary accumulated much property and died in Nearly all his descendants, and there are many, lived and died in North Carolina. James Wall was a wanderer far from his people. He moved to Twin Falls, Idaho and died there. Zachariah Wall I owned land between the two creeks west of Madison to Hairston's Ford, a distance of nine miles, and built his large, two-story house west of the creeks on the hill where Homer Groan's house now stands. Old residents of Madison remember that his home was occupied by Bob Lewis' family when it was burned about fifty years ago. Children of Zachariah and Annie Everett Wall were Amy, Robert, Richard, Ann Elizabeth, William and Sarah. Zachariah's son Robert, born in 1763, married Fannie Parsons in Culpeper County, Virginia. Their children were Zachariah II, James and Catherine Wall. Robert's son, Zachariah II married first Elizabeth Smith. Their children were Robert, Samuel and William Wall. He married second Jane Peoples and their children were Zachariah III, Granville, Lucy, Lizzie, Jane and Eliza Wall. Zachariah III married Celia Matthews December 27, They built the old Wall house in Their children were James, who married Mary Moore of Valley Home and moved to Idaho; Dr. Walter Wall who married Bettie Hooper and lived in Madison but died at the old home; Mollie, who married William Blackburn and lived at Walnut Cove; Granville, who married Sallie McAnally and lived in Stokes County; John D. who married Mollie Reynolds and had a store in Winston-Salem; Charlie who married Annie Laura Hudson and lives in his house near the old home; Nannie who married Robert McAnally and moved to Richmond, Virginia; Muncie who married Nannie Hatch and lives in East Lake, Tennessee; Hunter, who married Della Holland and who was a tobacconist in Winston-Salem; and Cartie, who married Tom Reynolds. Two girls died in childhood. Only three are still living, Charlies, Muncie and Cartie. Zachariah III, like the other Zachariahs, gave his children large plantations. Mr. And Mrs. Zack Wall always had their children home for Christmas; all the family looking forward to these occasions. Often there would be so many in the house at night that they would sleep on pallets. Preachers frequently stayed at the Walls. Mrs. Wall said she was never too tired to fix a meal for the preacher or the doctor. Miss Cartie, who is Aunt Cartie to many nieces and nephews who love her and visit her often, has lived in this house all of her life except for the first five years of her marriage to Tom Reynolds. They had no children but reared and cared for two as if they were their own. Louise Wall, Hunter's daughter, having lost her mother, lived in their home until her marriage to Charles Anglin, son of Mr. and Mrs. C.P. Anglin of Madison. They live in Winston-Salem, have four children and two grandchildren. Mrs. Cartie Wall is foster grandmother 258

263 and great-grandmother. A foster son, Russell Moore Reynolds, grew up in the home, went to the first World War, and died in a Veteran's hospital. Mr. Tom Reynolds died in The WallReynolds house is well preserved for its ninety eight years. It is tall, having two stories and an attic. It has large rooms, tall chimneys, with windows on each side of the chimneys. On the inside below each window is an interesting paneling. The woodwork in the parlor is painted in marbled effect and is the original painting which was done ninety eight years ago and still well preserved. The front porch is small, with columns and a railing. Among the old pieces of furniture is a handsome bedroom suite given by Miss Cartie's grandfather Matthews to her mother, Celia Matthews Wall, a walnut wardrobe designed by Zack Wall III, which has a tilting mirror in the upper center panel, a dough tray of the style now much prized, attractive old chairs and the little leather trunk which Tom Reynolds's mother, Eleanora Gosnold, brought with her when she came from Hagerstown, Maryland to Madison to be a teacher a hundred years ago. The lawn is studded with giant oaks and elms and across the front lawn is a tall hedge of Scotch broom. The seed of this Planta Genesta (botanical) is said to have been brought to America in feed for the horses which the British used during the Revolution. In a previous war, the British soldiers had fastened pieces of this plant in their helmets for camouflage, thus they were called Plantagenets. These are the forebears and one cross-section of the Wall family; there are many others. Most members of the family are vigorous, long-lived, have large families and love the land. There is a remarkable degree of unity and congeniality among them. Research Notes: An dated Nov. 9, 2008 From: Subject: Zachariah Wall To: Dear Mr Hagen I was happy to receive your .

General Notes: The following was written by Anne Frysinger Shifflet, Ph.D. copyright 1999 The Pennsylvania Germans (see notes on Jacob Imhoff Keller's grandson (son of Jacob), George, for additional descriptions) German Immigration into Colonial Pennsylvania The first German immigrants came to Pennsylvania in 1683, just two years after William Penn received the land from King Charles II of England. About 15,000 German-speaking immigrants arrived over the next several decades. These first-comers arrived, and either remained in the Philadelphia area or dispersed immediately into the forests to select land of their choice. The English leaders of the colony became concerned about the ever-increasing number of foreigners with different customs and language who were settling in Pennsylvania. In 1727, measures were taken to determine who these people were. Ship captains were ordered to make lists of their passengers. Upon arrival in Philadelphia, the adult male immigrants (who were well enough to do so) walked to the courthouse and signed an oath of allegiance to the English King. Soon a second Oath of Abjuration renouncing the Catholic pretender to the English throne was required. The journey to Pennsylvania from Swiss and German villages was long, hard, and expensive. The emigrants made their way to the Rhine River and boarded riverboats headed for Rotterdam. This segment of the journey lasted four to six weeks. Boats were detained and passengers were taxed at the customs house of each small principality they passed through. In Rotterdam, delays of several weeks were common, and many emigrants were out of money before boarding ship. The English ships had to pass by customs in an English port before starting across the Atlantic. Depending on the winds, the ocean voyage lasted from seven to twelve weeks. Tightly packed passengers were ill fed and subject to filth, disease, and storms. Survivors of the terrible voyage arrived in Philadelphia, usually in September or October. Those who could pay the captain for their passage were released. Some were fortunate in having friends or relatives meet them and pay or loan the necessary funds. For the remainder, the ship became a marketplace. Merchants from the area bargained with the immigrants to work for them for a certain number of years in return for payment of their debts. These "indentured servants" served their time, then went on their way to establish their new lives in Pennsylvania. More detailed information about the immigration process can be found in the introduction to the monumental Pennsylvania German Pioneers by Ralph B. Strassburger and William J. Hinke. This threevolume work contains all of the ship lists and oath signatures that have survived. Unfortunately, only a few of the indentured servant contracts are extant. Ralph B. Strassburger and William J. Hinke, Pennsylvania German Pioneers, 3 volumes (Pennsylvania German Society, 1934; reprint, Camden, Maine: Picton Press, 1992), I, pp. xii-xlv. Acquiring Land in Colonial Pennsylvania A prime motivation for the arduous journey across the ocean was the hope of acquiring one s own land in America. Although the procedures varied somewhat over the years, in the mid-eighteenth century, the proprietors of Pennsylvania used a basic three-step procedure for granting title to land. The settler applied for a "warrant" for a specified acreage in a particular location. The warrant was an order to survey the tract. When the survey was completed, it was "returned" to the land office. Then, for additional money, a "patent" was granted. The patent was a final deed from the proprietors that conveyed all rights to the tract of land. In reality, sometimes this process took several generations. Many settled and built their homes first, then later warranted their land with "improvements." Some settlers obtained a warrant but decided to 266

271 move on to a new location, thus voiding their warrant. Some sold their rights to warranted land to another party. Often, the man who obtained the warrant did not have sufficient funds to get the patent, and his son or grandson finished the process. After the initial patent deed from the proprietors of Pennsylvania, all subsequent transactions between private individuals were in the form of deeds, which may or may not have been recorded in the county courthouse. These two references provide detailed explanations. Munger, Donna Bingham. Pennsylvania Land Records. Wilmington, Del.: Scholarly Resources, Inc., Sergeant, Thomas. The Land Laws of Pennsylvania Reprint, Laughlintown, Pa.: Southwest Pennsylvania Genealogical Publishing Company, The above text was written by my sister, Anne, based on her research. The Pennsylvania German Language The immigrants brought with them their German language with varying dialects. In the early years, the English-speaking scribes could not record many of their wills because they were written in High German or "Deutsch." The settlers usually stuck together with families and friends who shared their language and customs. However, isolated from the European development of the German language and constantly modified by English, the Pennsylvania German language acquired unique characteristics of its own. It was the language spoken at home, even when English was learned in school and used for business outside the home. In the conservative Amish communities it is still used today. Church services were traditionally held in the High German language. It was always a difficult decision for churches to begin holding services in English. Jacob married Barbara Lande(I)S.

Research Notes: This individual, his wife, and family were documented by Rosalie Sommer of York Co., PA in This researcer came across her work in June 2007 and exchanged many s and documents. The initial contact revolved around George Cremer/Cramer, of Cumberland Co., PA. This researcher had found a cemetery record for a Geroge Cramer who died in Lower Allen Township, Cumebrland Co., PA in 1853 in Monroe Graveyard. In the graveyard were his daughter, Elizabeth, and many of the Paul and Elizabeth Gehr family. This researcher speculated that Elizabeth was perhaps "family"... perhaps a sister. Using that assumption, this researcher made contact with fellow Cramer/Cremer researcher, Rosalie Sommer of York Co., PA. She has done extensive work over the previous decade and somes up much of her work, published at ancestry.com, wit the following: Two Cramer [Krämer] lines settling in York County, Pennsylvania from Germany are represented here.

It is affirmed that this numerous family with different spellings are descended from the Norman Knight DeHardy. The family were Vikings who came into the area of Scotland belonging to the McTavish clan. They went into Ireland where a county is (?was) still named Hardy. From there they went into England. The earliest Hardy for whom there is an authentic record in America was: 1. John Hardy b d.1670 who came from England to Virginia before 1666 to Isle of Wight Co. He married Olive Council in She died after From them descended all of the persons embraced in this genealogy. by: Mrs. Mary Susan Hardy Wood Origins of the Hardy Family Original settlers in Newberry County were Thomas Hardy Sr & his wife, Phoebe Jeter. They had 8 children - riding on horseback from Lundenburg Co, VA down thru the woods of the Carolina to Newberry Co. They built a log cabin there. Their entourage included wagons of personal belongings, farm tools, livestock, eleven or more slaves. They traced their ancestry to the Norman Knight le Hardi, who was the first of their name to come across from the channel from France. In Virginia the Hardys had been part of a very large and moderately prosperous family. In England, the family was notable as farmers, Horsemen. In mid 1500 Sir John dehardy was Lord Mayor of London. He was descended from Sir John dehardy of Bedfordshire and Lady Margaret, d/o Michael de la Pole, a younger s/o the Earl of Suffolk. Sir John, Lord Mayor, m. Lady Mary destanley, whose ancestry included lords, ladies, the Duke of Earl & of Westmoreland. Through their parentage on the distaff side, the Hardys could thus trace their lineage to King Edward. Sir John dehardy, Lord Mayor of London, thus gave the future Hardys of this Union claim to royal blood, no matter how distant & diluted. ("Our Fathers' Fields" by James Everett Kibler, 1998 [A Southern Story]) "John Hardy was born in England and belonged to the landed gentry.
