Note: There is some talk that Stephen may have died 1780 in the Battle of Kings Mountain, but records show that he was granted 200 acres 23 Oct 1782 in Rockingham County, Virginia. (Data is from June Lenore (Souther) Perry of El Cajon, California. She references the Dyer book and says that Stephen's sons Joshua and Michael moved to Rutherford County, North Carolina between 1800-1810; Jesse moved to McDowell County, North Carolina and Joshua was Justice of the Peace during the War of 1812 at Wilkesboro, North Carolina.15

Descendants of Henry Souther of Culpepper County, Virginia

Descendants of Henry SOUTHER

Generation One

1. Henry1 SOUTHER; b. circa 1712 in Broomfield, Virginia;1,2 m. Juliann in Culpepper County, Virginia;3 d. before 17 May 1784 in Broomfield, Culpepper County, Virginia.4

Note: Germanna Record No. 6, p. 92, which says, "Henry was granted 326 acres in the Robinson River section in 1750, and the Rental of 1764 shows Henry with this land and a Stephen SOUTHER with 150 acres. The Southers intermarried with the 1717 families." Germanna Record No. 11, p. 84, says, "Henry's will is dated 2 Sep 1783 and was probated 17 May 1784 (Wulfeck 'Culpeper Co., VA Will Books B and C', p. 53) and mentions his sons Stephen, Michael, and Jacob SOUTHER and his daughters Barbary HUFFMAN and Catherine CANADA."

Some say that Henry SOUTHER was born in GERMANY.5


Juliann was born circa 1715 in Virginia ?6 She died before 1783.7

The five known children of Henry1 SOUTHER and Juliann were as follows:

2 i. Stephen2 SOUTHER, b. circa 1740 in Culpepper or Lunenberg, Virginia; m. Mary BUSSELL.


3 ii. Michael SOUTHER, b. 1744; m. Mary FISHER.


iii. Barbara SOUTHER; b. 1751 in Culpepper County, Virginia;8 m. Jacob HOFFMAN circa 1780;9 d. after 1815 in Madison County, Virginia.10

She was also known as Barbara HUFFMAN. Barbara and Jacob had 12 children.


iv. Catherine SOUTHER; b. 1753 in Virginia;11 m. Thomas CANNADA 1783. Catherine married second after 1785 to a Mr. KENNEDY.
4 v. Jacob SOUTHER, b. circa 1755 in Culpepper County, Virginia; m. Catherine "Katy" WAYLAND.

Generation Two
2. Stephen2 SOUTHER (Henry1); b. circa 1740 in Culpepper or Lunenberg, Virginia; m. Mary BUSSELL 1764 in Culpepper County, Virginia;13 d. in Wilkes County, North Carolina.14

Stephen and Mary married in Culpepper County, Virginia and moved to Wilkes County, North Carolina around 1778. He had and application for a land grant of 200 acres on July 4, 1778.

Stephen went with Benjamin CLEVELAND and the Western Carolina "Ruffians", as FERGUSON the British Leader called them. Stephen had a nose bleed and died on the way. It is not known if he was at the battle of Kings Mountain when it happened or where. We find no more records about Stephen after that. We did find land grants after that date evidently he had made the application for the grants and he was awarded them for his family.

On October 23, 1782 Stephen SOUTHER was granted 200 acres on both sides of Hunting Creek in Wilkes County. He did have a grant February 5, 1780. They evidently granted him his 200 acres after his death at Kings Mountain, for his family.15 There is some talk that Stephen may have died 1780 in the Battle of Kings Mountain, but records show that he was granted 200 acres 23 Oct 1782 in Rockingham County, Virginia. (Data is from June Lenore (SOUTHER) PERRY of El Cajon, California. She references the DYER book and says that Stephen's sons Joshua and Michael moved to Rutherford County, North Carolina between 1800-1810; Jesse moved to McDowell County, North Carolina and Joshua was Justice of the Peace during the War of 1812 at Wilkesboro, North Carolina.

Mary BUSSELL was born circa 1745 in Virginia or North Carolina. She died after 1800 in Wilkes County ?, North Carolina. She was also known as Polly BUSSELL.

The eight known children of Stephen2 SOUTHER and Mary BUSSELL were as follows:

vi. Sarah SOUTHER; b. circa 1783;21 m. Elijah HAMPTON 1 Feb 1803 in Wilkes County, North Carolina.22

Notes from Delores Thompson (deloresth@hotmail.com):

The following is pretty much the basis for my belief that George Washington Rich and Martin Rich are the brothers of my ancestor Stephen Rich (Daniel Rich his son).

Jno. Reach, Montgomery County, 1805
Shadrack Reach, Montgomery County, 1802
Shadrack Reach, Montgomery County, 1811

Shadrack Reach is in Montgomery County in 1802 and 1811. Montgomery County is the parent of Emanuel County. Don't know who Jno. Reach is.

Shadrick Rich in Jefferson County (next to Emanuel) in 1805. Martin Rick, Stephen Rick and Washington Rick in Montgomery, District 57 in 1811. District 57 became the Summertown area of Emanuel County in 1812. There they are all together.

Daniel E. Rich, Edward Rich, Martin Rich, Stephen Rich and Washington Rich are all residents of Emanuel County in 1820. I strongly feel that the Stephen Rich in Appling County is somehow related but have not been able to determine how.

Other Rich Researchers:
What a wonderful way to meet all of the "Riches". Here is my husband's
lineage:

Timothy Rich of Goochland Co., VA. died before 1736
Jeremiah (Parker) Rich (also spelled name Reach) will dated 1781 in Wake Co., NC
William Rich (used the spelling of Reach) Possibly born in Va (according to Census records) Died in or near Overton Co., Tennessee. No grave has been found.
William married Polly Hooker, a full blooded Cherokee Indian according to Cherokee Applications. This William Rich had several children and possible sons of William and Polly are: Jessee (we know for sure), Obediah, Jacob, John, and Robert. No proof of some of these sons
being of William and Polly.
Jessee Rich b.1782-1860 married Elizabeth Savage, daugher of Leven Savage and Ms. Martin.
Martin Rich b. 1822-1878 married Jane Bowman
Harvey Butler Rich b. 1845-1912 married Laura Hill, daughter of Robert Clemens Hill; second marriage Maggie Lena Brown Abney.
Millard Filmor Rich b. 1875-1939 married Daisey Abney (Maggie's daughter by 1st marriage)
Ned Brown Rich b. 1902-1929 married Sylvia Roark
Bobby Cross Rich now Robert Blain Morris through adoption b. 1940 Married Donita K. Moseley.

I started genealogy back in 1958 when I was in the 8th grade. My teacher introduced her class to research on our families and other people. We had to do our autobiography and a biography on famous person. That assignment was given on the second day of school and due in March. No one graduated her classes without those two requirements. She thought us how to use the library, write letters of request, document, and thank you letters and penmanship (which was NOT my best subject). Thanks to this great lady, I was fortunate to acquire pictures, etc. while my great grandparents and grandparents were living. So I have been doing genealogy off and on the
for the past 40 years.

Bob and I have been married for 38 years with one adopted son, and a son and daughter of our own. Along with yours, mine and ours children we are blessed with 13 grandchildren from the ages of 14 to 10 months. Bob is retired from Ameritech and I am a RN of 2 1/2 years. I plan to only work one day a week starting in Feb. of 2000 when Bob reaches 59 1/2.

I started the Rich Reunion in the late 1980's in order to find more RIch descendants. It works. We had almost 100 people attend this first
reunion. Our next reunion is July of 1999 in Standing Stone State Park, Tennessee. Although we live in southern Illinois, I hold the reunion near where our ancestors lived and died. Everyone is welcome to come.

With the help of Jimmie K. Maples, we publish a newsletter, Rich Ramblings quarterly for 10.00. I have also put together a book " Our Rich Heritage -- We've only just begun". I belong to the Rich Family Association. I never had the chance to know Julia Rich Hogan.

I will gladly trade info and am willing to help any one with research. I do PRN nursing and work about 36 hours a week.

Keep your chin up. Each clue you get will lead you to your next generation.

Hi,
My name is Voncille Hannon Bush and I live near Pensacola, Fl. Right now we are hunkered down in front of the TV set watching all the reports on Georges. We are getting some rain and expect to get some pretty strong wind gusts.

I became interested in genealogy about 10 years ago, just after my mother passed away. I retired a couple of years ago and expected to devote most of my time to genealogy research. It has not worked out that way.

My Rich line is as follows:

1.Voncille Hannon Bush (me)
2.Ida Louise Rich b 1913 in Decatur Co., Ga. (my mom)
3.Oscar Napoleon Rich b 1870 in Decatur Co., Ga. (my grandpa)
My grandpa's siblings were, Mollie S. Rich, Elnora Rich, Monroe Rich, John T. Rich, Aldophus Rich, and Harmon Elija Rich.
4.James Everett Rich b 1832 dc 1885 married to Caroline Tipton (my ggrandparents)

As you can see I have not been able to find the parents of my James Everett Rich b 1832. I found James in 1860 in Calhoun Co., GA and after that in Decatur Co., Ga. Most likely he is connected to one of the Riches that came into Randolph Co., Ga. or Decatur Co., Ga. in the early 1800s.
Randolph Co.: There was a Martin Rich m to a Sarah Overstreet that had at least one son (Thomas J. Rich 1815-1864) and I would interested to know the names of the other children of this Martin Rich. Thomas ended up in Decatur Co., the same as my James.
Decatur Co.: There was a Geo. Washington Rich that went to Decatur and he had a son (Stephen m Martha Phillips). I would be interested in knowing more about this Geo. Washington Rich.

I have enjoyed watching all the posts and was surprised to see so many from Ga/Al.

Thanks, Voncille

Hi fellow Cousins, I am William Rich of Warner Robins Ga. I have been a member of Rich Roots list for over a year now and witnessed its
growth. I completed 11 years in the U.S. Navy on July 08, 1998. I came home to Ga and enrolled into college to take advantage of my GI
Bill before Congress adds it to the list of VA Benefits to get rid of. I plan to start a new career in Information Technology majoring in
Networking and Communications. I research our family history in Memory of the Greatest Women of my Life, My Grandmother Hilda "Spell" Rich who died in May of 1997. Enduring a Tragic life she constantly blessed her children and Grandchildren with her unconditional love. Granny you will never be forgotten. Love Billy

Hi Cousins, I trying to find out any info on this line of Riches. It is possible that William Martin Rich came to Maine from England and
moved south to NC and then to Georgia. It has been passed down in our line that our Riches came from England to Maine through North Carolina to Georgia however I have not been able to prove any of that and actually I was searching up another line of Riches for answers that has not yet yielded any results. A second cousin sent me this info that was composed by a Great Great Uncles Family:

William Martin Rich b 12 may 1782 Phillack, Cornwall, England d Elbert, GA
Amy Folfinghome b 1786 Phillack, Cornwall, England

John Rich b 4 May 1751
Catharine Trevaskis b 1753

John Rich b abt 23 Feb 1719
Elizabeth Jeffrey b 1721

John Rich b abt 1690 d 23 April 1757 m abt 1718
Mariann

Major John Rich b abt 1608 d 1679
Susanna Venn b abt 1613

Thanks for your help

224 (Research):The will of Thomas Hicks Combs, dated 26 Oct 1848, and recorded in Hancock Co, Indiana on 14 Feb 1854, named wife Keziah, "40 acs I now live on during her natural life.." then to son Elias Combs ? unto son John Combs 40 acs T17R08S30 SWSE ? to son Elias 40 acs aft death of wife Keziah being T17N R08ES30 SWNE?." According to a family letter, his death date was 12 May 1849.

After Thomas Hicks Combs' death, part of the family moved to Monroe Co, Iowa, no later than Aug 1855; the land in Hancock Co, Indiana sold in Apr 1855. Keziah HAYS Combs resided with her son Elias until his death in 1871.

According to an account by her granddaughter, Elizabeth Combs Smith, daughter of Elias & Margaret WATSON Combs (See Below), Keziah HAYS Combs died in 1874 at age 84 (born ca1790). However, the 1850 Hancock Co, Indiana census shows she was 68 years of age (born ca 1782) and the 1860 Monroe Co, Iowa census shows she was 76 (born ca1784). One date we know for certain is the marriage date of 1801...it seems likely she was not 11 years of age when married if born in 1790, so we must assume that either she died at age 84 before Elias, or that she wasn't 84 when she died. It seems more likely she was 19 (bc 1782) or 17 (bc 1784) when she was married. She was buried at Hayes/Selection Cemetery in Monroe Co, Iowa. (Combs Researcher Nancy Tyrrel Theodore)


Letter from William McCray (husband of Jane Evelyn Combs McCray) to Jabez and Nancy Combs Hendren and his brother Jehu dated 10 May 1849:

"Father Combs [Thomas Hicks Combs] was lade by the side of his Daugter Elizabeth Hendren. I have been waiting for the last three years hoping to receive a letter from you but have not and I expect that you would like to hear how we are agetting along in this world. We was married December the 5 fifth 1844......I have sold the farm that I was aliving on when Jehu was in this part."

Since the marriage of Jane and William is news, we could surmise that Jehu was gone from Hancock Co. IN by December of 1844.

226 (Research):There is a Jacob Harrell in 1800 in Hallifax, Martin County, NC who is 26-45 and a wife 26-45. However, no children are in the household. Harrell, Jacob (I1864)
 
227 (Research):There is another report, less clear in print, which shows that Washington Ricke was appointed lieutenant in the 244 Militia Company, Jackson County in January, 1810. This also may have been our Washington. (23: 25)

Washington Rich witnessed a land transaction in Montgomery County between Elizabeth Fenn and ELIJAH FENN on October 11, 1811. (12: 102: and Derden, J. K. Montgomery County. Georgia. Spartanburg: The Reprint Company, 1983.) (31:175: Montgomery County, Georgia Deed Abstracts)

The 1811 Montgomery County tax digest lists Washington Ricks as a tax-payer. (41: 11 Thompson, D. H. Internet electronic notes received fron Delores Thompson in re the Rich Family, October and November, 2000.)

George Washington Rich and his brother Martin Rich served during the War of 1812 in the 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, 6th Regiment, Georgia Militia. (8: 352) G.W.'s company was not called to Federal service so his records are in the Georgia Archives. He is shown to have been a member of Captain Wilson Conner's Company of Volunteer Mounted Riflemen. There were 57 men in the company oldest of whom was 60 years. They provided their own weapons ("perhaps 20 prime rifles and some excellent shotguns") but asked the Governor for muskets and bayonets. The men provided their own horses, bridles, saddles, etc. and their own uniforms which were described as"... black short coats, waistcoats and pantaloons also black hunting shirts... the hats, not caps, with a black leather cockade and a bunch of white hair behind it." (6) Martin and Washington Riach are shown in Captain Braswell's muster roll of late 1814. (24: 416)

Governor William Rabun appointed Washington Rich, Gentleman, Ensign of the 59th District Company of Militia, Emanuel County. He served in that office from May 13,1818 until April 27, 1820. (22: 114)

Papers for the 1820 term of the Emanuel County court shows Washington Rich of Emanuel County tolling (reporting) for tax purposes a bay mare worth $80. (10:17)

The Creek War of 1836 caused much military activity in southwest Georgia which was the principal arena for that contest. George W. Rich spent at least 10 days in active service in Baker County along the banks of the Flint River and the Chickasahatchy Creek as a member of Captain Jonathan C. Hawthorn's Company of the Georgia Guard or Decatur Cavalry. Although Captain Hawthorne's report of August 16, 1836 does not describe any engagement with the Creeks, he does mention the measures taken to provide for wounded members of his Company. The Company was discharged after that date. It had been called to service by Governor William Schley about the time of the battle of the Chickasawhatchee Swamp in Baker County, July, 1836. Undoubtedly, the casualties occurred in skirmishes with Indians attempting to flee the Swamp and then head down the Flint to Florida.

229 (Research):This Emeline Harrell Fenn might be the daughter of Dempey Harrell & Jane Donaldson because Dempsey Harrell moved from Decatur County, GA to Early County, GA.


Dempsy's daughter, Mary A. (Harrell) Roberts, is listed on the same page as Emeline Fenn in 1860, so they might be sisters.

Emeline/Emily Harrell might be the daughter of Dempsey Harrell who had another daughter named Adeline or perhaps it was Mary Adeline.....


In 1850, they have a son (William - under one year old). Ages in the 1850 census were John Fenn (age 21, born in Georgia) and Emeline Fenn (age 20, born in Georgia). Ages in the 1860 census were John Fenn (age 30, born in GA) and Emeline Fenn (age 30, born in GA).

Enlisted 5 May 1778 in the Ninth Regiment of the Continental Army, age 18. Served 12 months, 17 days as a Private and 11 months, 13 days as a Corporal. Discharged at West Point, NY, June 9 1783. He had at least 72 grandchildren of whom the oldest was the great-grandfather of John Nathan Roberts.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Stephen was assessed in Plymouth in 1792, in 1798 lived in Northmoreland when he sold lands to Samuel Marvin and later returned to Plymouth. December 1807, with Zerah Marvin, he bought 960 acres of land on the east side of Shickshinny Creek from Jacob and Maria Kachline, of Salsbury, Northampton Co., Pa., and October 15 1789, he bought from Lemuel Gaylord, administrator of the estate of Aaron Gaylord, ten acres of land in Plymouth and 300 acres in Huntington Township. These latter lands he deeded to Lemuel Gaylord the same day. April 23 1819, his name was placed on the Federal Pension Roll for services rendered in the War of the American Revolution, in the Connecticut Continental Line. He was married to Rebecca, daughter of Elisha and Sarah Richards

=======Plymouth Roberts Information from Dave Finn===========
Stephen removed from Connecticut in the very early years of the country. He first located in the Valley, making his residence there a number of years, finally removing to Union Township, where he, with Mr. Marvin, bought a tract of land, most of which is still in the possession of their descendents. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary Army, doing good service in the cause of independence. He lived to a good old age, after rearing a family of eight children, who became prominent citizens of the county.

E-mail from Ann Krahn (pickles@tsf.net) dated 9/21/2003: One of the reasons some of the Combs/Hendren line may have moved back to NC from Indiana was the fact that Hancock County, where they settled, was not a particularly healthy one. Apparently there was a great deal of illness (I'm not sure what kind) from the miasma. I found it surprising though, that in traveling that far, they would have chosen to settle finally, in a boggy area.


Letter from William McCray (husband of Jane Evelyn Combs McCray) to Jabez and Nancy Combs Hendren and his brother Jehu dated 10 May 1849:

"Father Combs [Thomas Hicks Combs] was lade by the side of his Daugter Elizabeth Hendren.

Author: Compiled by Miriam Mitchiner Brown

Media: Book
Page: 32
Text: Pg-142 May Term 1842 Justices:Merrit Etheridge, Jethro Dean, James Fountain and Sam'l B eall. Clerk: Aug. B. Raiford.
John L. Jones, Est. Taliaferro Jones is appointed Admr., de bonis non, the Will annexed, with $4,000 bond. Henry Eady, Wade Nelson, Wm. G. Hatcher, Wiley Holland and William Stephens are Appraisers.

According to GEORGIA GENEALOGIES, "John Lawrence Jones was evidently born in Virginia, raised in some of the more settled provinces and came from a family of considerable culture. He was highly appreciative of the finer things of life and was to some extent out of joint with the rougher elements with which he came in contact with in his Georgia environment. That he was a man of intelligence and integrity is proven by the fact he was named executor of the will of Dr. John Taliaferro. That he was a man of courage is proven by the fact he took up arms in defense of the people of his community from the depredations of the Indians, serving as a
soldier in the Indian War (Georgia Genealogies author's mother's notes--author
said he was a worthy mate of Lucy Taliaferro)."

1812 - John L. Jones enlists as Private in Wimberly's 3rd Regiment, Georgia Militia in the War of 1812. He later probably served in the Indian Wars of 1815-1817.

John L. and Joseph Jones are listed on page 80 of the 1820 Census Index.

The 1820 Wilkinson County, GA census lists John L. and Lucy Taliaferro (reference to a will of Joseph Taliaferro and his wife where John and Lucy were beneficiaries).

1827 - John L. Jones was Executor of Lewis Bond estate. 1828 - John L. Jones was executor of John Taliaferro estate.

1830 census lists that John L. Jones died in 1831, and Lucy is still living as his widow. John L. Jones' will, prepared January, 1830, was probated on July 5, 1830. It listed Wilkinson County, GA as his home and appointed his wife, Lucy, and his brother Thomas along with William Rutherford to dispose of this property. He gives daughter, Nancy (married Peyton Clay), and Sarah (married Edmund Clay), and Letha (no record) one feather bed and furniture to each of them. He gives each 40 weight and $10.00 worth of kitchen furniture along with 2 cows and calves, one sow, and pigs. The remainder of the estate is left to Lucy for her lifetime or widowhood. The children are to be schooled at Lucy's discretion. Other children named are: Beheathland (married James H. Fountain), Susan (married Robt. Barnes), Judith (married Lewis Clay), and John Richard (married Obedience Hatcher). The Clays were all brothers and sons of David and Eve Hardin Clay. Son Taliaferro Jones ends up with primary responsibility for the small children and estate after his mom and dad's death.

Newspaper - Sussex Independent, March 12, 1908, Franklin Furnace:
W.C. Nestor spent Sunday visiting friends in Scranton, Pa.
Miss Mary Berrigan, of Ogdensburg spent Sunday with Mrs. George McEntee.
Miss Fanny Oliver and Miss Bernice Martin passed Sunday at Miss Martin's home, in Middletown.

Franklin, known as the Fluorescent Mineral Capital of the World, is located over a rich ore body containing more than 150 minerals, many of them fluorescent and 25 found no where else on earth. Settled in the 1600s, the village known as Franklin Furnace, developed near iron mines and iron smelting operations is located along the Wallkill River. In the early 1800s zinc deposits in the area began to be developed commercially. For most of the century many small companies mined zinc and iron in the Franklin area. In 1897, all zinc mining efforts merged into the New Jersey Zinc Company. The Zinc Company was a major controlling factor in the development of Franklin. Immigrants from Russia, England, Hungary and Poland joined the work force at the mine. The population, 500 in 1897, swelled to 3,000 by 1913 when the area was incorporated as the Borough of Franklin. The New Jersey Zinc Company mine closed in 1954.

248 (Research):What little is known about the life of Timothy Holdaway has been extracted from his Revolutionary War pension record, his last will and testament, tax lists, and land deed transactions.

Timothy Holdaway was born in Culpeper Co., VA, on 25 Dec. 1744. Although unable to obtain proof of his parents, it is possible that his father was also Timothy Holdaway, who died about 1790 in Culpeper Co. VA and mother Bridgett. It is probable that John Hoidaway who settled in Jefferson Co., TN and Henry Holdaway (1756-1835) who settled in Wilkes Co., NC were brothers of Timothy. It is also probable that Henry Holdaway (1776-1840's) who settled in Fayette Township, Virgo Co., IN is directly related to the family.

He moved to Wilkes Co., NC. on the Yadkin River about the time the Revolutionary War commenced (1775) where he lived that part of the next two years. In all probability, Timothy was married by this time (age 30), but no marriage record has been found. He then moved to the Watauga (1777) where he lived that part of the two following years. From Watauga he moved to Bent Creek (1779), in what was to become Jefferson Co., TN. in 1792, and later Hamblen Co., TN, in 1870, where he remained for the rest of his life. Geographically, he resided along Bent Creek in what is now Whitesburg, TN.
In 1778, Timothy is listed on the Washington Co., TN, Tax List paying a poll tax and one pound six pence.

He enlisted in the North Carolina Militia Line in Wilkes Co., NC in what he believes to be 1778, as a private in the Company of volunteers commanded by Captain John Cleveland with other companies under the command of Col. Jack Sevier. His service over the next four years totaled eleven months and twenty-one days. Five months were under Capt. Cleveland, two months were as a spy, three months were in guarding Wear's Station on the Pigeon River, three weeks were against the Tories under Major Morgan, and one month was against the Indians under Maj. Walton.

Timothy Holdaway was one of the first settlers in Jefferson County, being one of four men who came to the head of Bent Creek where they made a crop and built a fort.

From 1782 to 1800, we find few records oertaining to Timothy. On 21, Oct 1791, he assigned his Revolutionary War Land Warrant for 300 acres to Alexander Outlaw for 250 acres of land in Greene Co., TN on both sides of Bent Creek, including the plantation where he lived and adjoining Alexander Outlaw. During the period of time that Timothy resided on Bent Creek, he accumulated approximately 1,000 acres of land through various deeds and grants.

Around 1795, Timothy started a family. It was about this time that he married, possibly a second time, since he was in his early fifties. Based upon his Last Will and Testament, he had at least two sons, Henry and David. Available census data places both their births around 1796.

It is claimed that Francis "Fanny" Holdaway was a daughter of Timothy and was born 28 Nov 1797 near New River, VA, and taken to Tennessee when quite small.

On 03 Dec 1801, Timothy Holdaway was born in Jefferson Co., TN. It is believed that Timothy was his father, but no documentary proof has been found. Based upon a land deed given to James J. Holdaway at probate. we know that James J. Holdaway. who was born in 1802, was also a son of Timothy. James died in August 1849. in Madison Co. IL. from smallpox at the age of torty-seven after a nine month illness.

Timothy Holdway sold Zachariah Riddle forty-four acres of land on Bent Creek, including the tract of land said Holdaway lived on 16 Jan 1813. It was probably during this time that Timothy moved in with his son Henry and it is believed that his wife died just previous to this time.

Francis "Fanny" Holdaway married John Day in Jefferson County on 01 Jun 1815. In 1821 or 1822, Timothy Holdaway (the younger) married Mary Elizabeth Trent. David Holdaway married Mary Hash on 15 Feb 1821 in Garyson Co., VA where they remained and raised their family. Some of the family moved to Ashe, NC in the later years.

By 1830, Timothy, age eighty-six and probably in poor health, begins to divest himself of his property. On 06 Jul 1833, Timothy Holdway, being sensible of his approaching end in this life, made his Last Will and Testament leaving his goods and chattels to his two sons, Henry Holdway and David Holdway. It was in open court during the December 1833 Sessions of the Jefferson County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions and reflects that he is deceased. The Will was admitted to Record at the June, 1834 Sessions Court.

He was issued a Certificate of Pension Number S2630 on 15 Aug 1833 for his Revolutionary War service. He probably passed from this earth sometime in September, 1833, in Jefferson Co., TN. An Inventory of his Estate was made 19 Jul 1834 and sworn in open court 08 Sep 1834 as follows: John M. Lane, 1 Cow. 7.92-Samuel Day. 1 yearling Colt. 4.00-1 Large Kettle to Solloman Lacky,-l Do Do, to Henry Holdway. 1.52-1 Small Pot, to Jeremiah Mangrum. 1.25-1 Broken Pot. to Henry Holdway, 1.00 A peace of Log Chain to Jas.

After the death of Timothy Holdaway, Sr., Timothy Holdaway. J... and family, along with other Holdaways. moved to Greencastle, Putnam Co., IN. and then to Madison Co.. IL. The younger Timothy's family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Nauvoo, IL. and traveled across the plains with the Mormans to Salt Lake City, UT, in the late 1840's. Henry and John remained in Jefferson Co., TN. William Holdaway moved on to Arkansas. Submitted by Boyd J. Hodaway, 450 So. Peachtree Parkway, Apt. D303, Peachtree City, GA 30259-3932

249 (Research):When I was browsing the Oliver's I was reminded of the story my dad always told about Aunt Lott (Charlotte Gregory) his grandmother's sister. Lott was much older, from your data she was about 18 years older, than Ida and never married. She lived down the road from the farm but came every day at exactly 11:45 for the noon meal which Ida made for everyone including the farm hands. Lott would always let her chickens or cow get out and my dad would have to go down to her house and get them inside the fence again.

One day Lott did not show up and John Oliver, my dad's grandfather sent him down to see what was wrong. when dad got to Lott's house he said everything looked fine until he looked in the window and saw a hole in the floor. Lott had been sitting in her chair next to a stove and her clothes must have caught fire and she burned a hole in the floor and she and the chair fell through to the cellar but the house did not catch fire.

I know that this sounds strange but my dad was the one who found her and he always told us this story.

North Carolina} In Equity
Wilkes County}
To The Item The Judges of the court of Equity for the county aforesaid
The bill of complaint of Alexander Gilreath of Wilkes County by his Guardian Larkin J. Bicknell against Noah Gilreath of the said county of Wilkes, Humbly complaining I herewith unto your honor, that your orator the said Alexander Gilreath is a very aged and infirm old man and now about ninety-eight years of age that for the last twelve or fifteen years he has been wholy incapable through old age and imbecility of mind of transacting any kind of business, and that for the last twelve or thirteen years as your orator the said Larkin J. Bicknell believes, the said Alexander the ward of the said Larkin , has not attempted to do any business of imporatnce, not even to buy or sell any thing whatever; but that all his business of every description has been attended to and transacted by the defendant the said Noah Gilreath until the appointment of your orator the said Larkin J. Bicknell as Guardian of the said Alexander, he the said Alexander having been forced by a Jury of Wilkes County sumond and compelled under a writ of Lunacy issuing from the county court of said county a Lunatic, of unsound mind and incapable of managing his effects, that this writ of Lunacy issued from Nov Term 1850 and the Jury returned their verdict to Feby Term 1851 and that at August Session last your orator Larkin Bicknell was appointed Guardian of the said Alexander Gilreath.

Your orator would further shew unto your honor that for many years previous to the appointment of your orator as Guardian of the said Alexander, the said Noah had taken the entire management of his whole estate which comes to a very good plantation, well stocked with horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, farming tools of every description, a good dell of blacksmiths tools, a grist mill where much grinding was done, together with a family of negroes, some ten or eleven in number, of these I cares[?] several are very valuable and have been able to earn wages for many years, To wit Princess about 35 or 40 years old Luke about the same age, a valuable blacksmith, Andy about 22 or 23 years of age, Enos about 20 years of age John about 18 years of age Mary, Mira, Amanda all able and valuable women, which have alltogether with the plantation and stock of every kind thereon been managed by the said Noah Gilreath as agent of the said Alexander, to[?] the said Noah receiving the whole income of the said farm and stock thereon, together with all the proffits of the grist mill, blacksmith shop and hire of slaves; that the said Noah took charge of this property in the year 1822 and has as agent of the said Alexander managed the farm and received the rents and proffits of the whole and has never accounted with your orator Larkin or his ward the said Alexander Gilreath.

Your orator would further shew unto your honor that the said Alexander being old and infirm in body and mind and having just confidence in his said son the defendant Noah, permitted the said Noah to manage every thing just as he pleased, he the said Alexander alleges signing such papers as for the said Noah required him to do without ever inquiring into the propriety or impropriety of the act required to be done by the said Noah.

Your orator would further shew unto your honor that although it is now only one year since the writ of Lunacy issued from the county court of Wilkes and under which the said Alexander was forced to be of unsound mind and incapable of managing his property; yet your orator shews unto your honor that it was well known to all the friends and neighbors of the said Alexander for the last twelve years that he the said Alexander was of unsound mind and incapable of transacting any business or of doing any binding act in relation to the purchase, sale or received the pay the pay therefor and counted the Item to his own use that he has also procured from the said Alexander a deed of gift for a tract of land on which the said Alexander Gilreath now lives containing one hundred acres and likewise gor four of the Items of the said Alexander and to which the said Noah as your orator is informed and believes is now setting up title; your orator would further shew unto your honor that the said Alexander Gilreath was a Revolutionary Soldier and as such was entitled to a pension of some forty four dollars annually which has all been received for the last ten or twelve years by the defendant Noah and for which he is liable to account with your orator; your orator would further shew unto your honor that the said Alexander many years since executed a will in due form of law and in which he the said Alexander sett forth his wishes as to the disposition of his estate after his death and therein devised to the said Noah all of his real estate consisting of a large quantity of land except about two hundred acres, that he bequeathed transfer of his property, still as the friends and relatives of the said Alexander had their confidence in the defendant Noah and as they supposed he would manage the property directly and would ultimately render a just and full account of his management of the said estate they took no steps to have a vyable[?] Guardian appointed, but permitted the defendant to assume the Guardianship of the said Alexander and thus to manage the whole estate until they discovered that instead of acting the part of a faithfull Guardian and managing the estate for the advantage and benefit of the said Alexander and then who ought to show his estate upon his death that the said Noah was selling the stock upon the farm together with all the surplus produce and putting the proceeds into his own pocket and keeping no account thereof, that he also has commenced dispursing of the slaves belonging to said estate, that some two years ago he sold a Girl Mira belonging[?] to the said Alexander worth not up than seven hundred dollars; to the sais Noah four of his slaves by name and that the said Noah has since fraudulently procured from the said Alexander this aged and infirm old man over whom he assumed a guardianship for many years a conveyance for one hundred acres of land not devised to him in the said will and also four of the slaves that were not bequeathed him in said will, so that should the said will be established and should he succeed in establishing his said deed of gift, then the said Noah will have title to all the land of the said Alexander except one hundred acres and eight of the eleven slaves belonging to said estate, and yet the said Alexander has now seven other living children and several grand children, the children of his son Jeremiah who died some years since.

Your orator states unto your honor that he verily belives that the said deed of gift for the said tract of land and the said four slaves was procured by the said Noah Gilreath from the said Alexander by fraud and imposition and by taking advantage of the position he then occupied in relation to his aged parent, he the said Noah having for many years previous to obtaining the said deed of gift assumed the guardianship of the said Alexander and having taken the management of his whole estate upon the ground that the said Alexander was wholy incapable of managing the same on account of mental imbecility, and your orator states it as his firm belief that at the time of the execution of the said pretended deed of gift which took place in December 1846, the said Alexander Gilreath the ward of your orator Larkin was wholy incompetent by reason of his mental imbecility to make any binding disposition of his property. But even if the said Alexander at that time possessed sufficient power of mind to make the said deed of gift (which is wholy denied by your orator) still your orator insists that the said deed was obtained from the said Alexander by fraud and imposition and by taking undue advantage of the position which he the said Noah then and for many years having had occupied in relation to the said Alexander; he the said Noah then acting and having for many years before acted as the guardian and protector of the said Alexander; so that your orator insists that the deed of gift is wholy inoperative to keep the estate of the said Alexander in the said land or slaves and if sufficient to keep the estate, still it was obtained under such circumstances of weakness and imbecility of mind in the said Alexander and by such fraudulent and improper practices and by taking such undue advantage of the position he then occupied that this honorable court still sets the same aside and treat the said Noah as a Trustee of said land and slaves for the benefit of the ward of your orator and compell him to surrender up the said slaves to your orator and to account for the rest of the said land and for the hire of the said slaves from the date of the said bill of sale or deed of gift in December 1846; Your orator would further state unto your honor that the rest of the plantation and the hire of the slaves of the said Alexander since they have been in the charge and custody of the said Noah as agent have been [?] some two hundred dollars annually over and beyond the support and maintenance of the said Alexander and his family, as your orator shewith unto your honor that the family when the said Noah first took charge of the said estate consisted of your orators ward, his wife and an unmarried Daughter and after her Moniaji[?] which took place some nine or ten years since of himself and wife alone and that his said wife died about two years ago and that since that time there has been no experience saves the support and maintenance of the said Alexander himself and his said slaves, all of which or nearly all were valuable and capable of earning good wages; your orator would further represent unto your honor that the said Noah Gilreath has already offered for sale the Negroe man Luke, a very valuable slave a good smith and worth not less than one thousand dollars, and the said Noah by threatning to sell all of the slaves contained in the said deed of gift and to have them run out of the country and thereby to deprive the said Alexander of his said slaves; your orator would further shew unto you honor, that your orator Larkin since his appointment as Guardian has called upon the said Noah Gilreath the defendant and requested him to suurender up the said slaves, to pay over to him the money and interest accrued for the negro woman Mira to pay over the various sums accrued by the said Noah as pension money and likewise to account with your orator Larkin for the hire of the slaves, the sale of the stock and the rents and proffits of the farm running[?] his agency; with which reasonable request your orator will hope the said Noah would have reasonably complied, but now so it is may it please your honor the said Noah has wholy neglected and refused to comply with the reasonable request of your orator, sometimes upon one pretence and then upon another, all which actions and doings of the said Noah contrary to equity and good conscience and tend to the manifest injury and oppression of your orator, and for as much as your orator is remedied in the premises according to the stries[?] miles[?] of the common law and relievable only in this honorable court of Equity when matters of this nature are alone relievable, may it please your honor to grant unto your orator the states writ of injunction and subpoena enjoining the said Noah from selling or removing the said slaves beyond the jurisdiction of this court and commanding the said Noah to appear at the next Court of Equity for the county of Wilkes on the third Monday in March next, there and then full and true and perfect answers make to all and singular the allegations of this your orator till of complaint in as full ample and particular manner as if the same were herein again repeated by way of interrogatory and for the said Noah thereunto particularly interrogated, and that your honor will order and decree that the said Noah account with your orator and that the said bill of sale or deed of gift for the said land and slaves be annulled, avoided, and sett aside and that he pay to your orator the money received for the sale of the slave Mira and also the Pension money received by the said Noah during the time he acted as agent and Guardian of the said Alexander and that he fully account with and pay over to your orator the money received for the sale of the slave Mira and also the Pension money received by the said Noah during the time he acted as agent and Guardian of the said Alexander and that he fully account with and pay over to your orator all such sums as he has received with rents and proffits of the land the hire & services of the slaves the profitts of the grist mill and blacksmith shop the sale of stock [?] and that your honor will make all such other and further orders and decrees as the law may require and to your honor may seem just and right And your orator a, in duty [?] will ever pray W Boyden & L. B. Carmichael Solicitors for Complainant
