Tues Aug 18, 1818
Whereas Robert Clay and James Hatcher have applied to me for letters of administration on the estate of DAVID CLAY, deceased.

Sept. 5 47 - 9t

On the same page in the same column:

Will be sold on the 22d of October next, all the personal property belonging to the estate of David Clay, deceased - consisting of horses, hogs, cattle, sheep, one waggon, two stills, plantation tools, corn, fodder and cotton - and household furniture. Terms of sale made known on the day.
Ja's Hatcher )
Robert Clay ) Adm'rs

Tues April 27, 1819
Will be sold on Saturday the 29th day of May next, at the late residence of DAVID CLAY, deceased, in Wilkinson County, the balance of the personal property of said deceased..consisting of cows and calves and one horse. Signed James Hatcher, Robert Clay, Adms.

David's grave is easy to spot from the road - the directions are real good. About a mile from David's grave, on the right, is the Kinney- Branan cemetery with the other Clays. Then there are the 2 Clays in the Toomsboro Cemetery.

I-16 is about 26 miles south of Toomsboro. Then David's grave is about 6 miles north of Toomsboro. Shouldn't be too much out of the way.

From Toomsboro, go north on Hwy 112 for approximately 5-3/4 miles. Turn left on C. T. Lord (CR 142) and go 0.3 mile. The grave will be on your left on a rise.

252 (Research):William John Moore had one brother John and a sister Mary per deed:

"Phebe Moore, widow and relict of Samson Moore of East Nottingham, deceased, and John Moore, William Moore and Mary Moore, his children", conveyed to Timothy Kirk of the Hundred of East Nottingham, Cecil County, Md., Hatter, for 600 pounds sterling about 66-1/2 acres of land situate in East Nottingham Township, Chester County, Pa., which land is described as adjoining lands owned by Timothy Kirk, Patrick Hamilton, John Andrews and Widow Kirk. "This land had been surveyed to Samson Moore May 23, 1770, by the Commissioners of Property under the Proprietors of Pennsylvania."

Notes by Linda Moss:
He is said to have received 1730 a legacy of 25 pounds sterling from his younger brother John Moore then a resident of Lancaster County, PA. But if John Moore (the younger brother) were old enough to leave a will which could be admitted to probate, it seems reasonable to assume that Sampson Moore must have been born around 1700. This probably means he was born in Ireland.

Samson Moore's name appears on the tax lists of East Nottingham Township, Chester County, PA the years 1753, 1754, 1756, 1758, 1760, 1762, and 1763. It appears from these records that he owned sixty acres of land with buildings, one horse, two cows, and four sheep. He appears to have died a resident of East Nottingham Township. By deed dated June 3, 1779 recorded in Chester County, Pennsylvania deed book V, page 615, on September 18, 1779, "Phebe Moore, widow and relict of Samson Moore of East Nottingham, deceased, and John Moore, William Moore, and Mary Moore, his children," conveyed to Timothy Kirk of the Hundred of East Nottingham, Cecil County, Maryland, hatter, for 600 sterling about 66 acres of land situate East Nottingham Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, which land is described as adjoining lands owned by Timothy Kirk, Patrick Hamilton, John Andrews, and Widow Kirk.

This land had been surveyed to Samson Moore May 23, 1770, by the Commissioners of Property under the Proprietors of Pennsylvania. 
Moore, Sampson (I3251)
 
253 (Research):William was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He is listed in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Index, Vol. II. He lived in 2 counties in North Carolina over a period of 35 years before moving to Newberry, South Carolina in 1787. There he first resided in Granville (later Bute, now Warren) County from the early 1750s until about 1775 when he moved to Wilkes County, North Carolina. At least three of William's sons remained in Bute County for a few years, but by 1790 they had also moved to Wilkes. In 1787 William, his wife Mary, and their four youngest children moved to Newberry, South Carolina leaving the older ones behind in NC. After William died in 1795 his two youngest sons, George and Jesse, moved to Greenville, South Carolina where they bought adjoining farms and remained the rest of their lives. Most likely William's heritage was of Scotch/Irish as was most of the settlers in North Carolina in the 1750s. He is listed in the 1755 Tax list of Greenville County, North Carolina as well as the 1771 Tax list of Bute County, North Carolina. He is listed on the Wilkes County, North Carolina 1782 Tax List as having 250 acres of land, 5 mules, 11 cattle, and no slaves. On September 22, 1785, William recorded (North Carolina Grant No. 628) "200 acres of land on the middle fork of the Little Cub Creek at ford where Montgomery's old path crosses. "On December 23, 1799 (North Carolina Grant No. 1953) William recorded 509 acres on Brushy Mountain as well as 50 acres on Cub Creek (North Carolina Grant No. 1952).

The son of Alexander Gilreath, born in 1695 in Virginia: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cg i-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=selvage1&id=I19834 Book 975.739P2 Newberry, South Carolina Estate Film 142163 5 item #5 Redtower Vol XII, #3, p74, Galbraith Gene Ltr. Says that family came to Virginia first, then to North Carolina abt 1750-1756. William Sr. received a land grant of 600 acres in 1760 from the Earl of Granville. Granville became Bute in 1864 (northern edge of North Carolina) Bute abolished, 1779. Moved to Newberry, South Carolina in 1787 with four youngest children. http://searches.rootsweb.com/cg i-bin/ifetch2?/u1/textindices/G/GILREATH+1997+37116041+F William Gilreath, Sr. (1730-1795) lived in 2 counties in North Carolina over a period of about 35 years before moving to South Carolina in 1787. He first resided in Granville (later Bute, now Warren) County from the early 1750s until about 1775 when he moved to Wilkes County, North Carolina. Three of William's sons remained behind in Bute County for a few years but by 1780 they were also living in Wilkes. In 1787 William, his wife Mary and their 4 youngest children moved to Newberry South Carolina leaving the older ones behind in North Carolina. After William died in 1795 his two youngest sons (George and Jesse) moved to Greenville, South Carolina where they bought adjoining farms and remained the rest of their lives.

It appears from the 1800 census that both Mother and youngest sister were residing with George. William's will lists 5 sons and 3 daughters. We assume there were others not named that died before the will was written: John, William( Jr), Alexander, Sarah Thompson, George, Nancy Turner, Jesse, Mary. Other sons probably were: James - signed a petition with John and William Jr in 1779 to divide Bute County. Also listed as a Private with Captain William Lenoir on at least one expedition during the Revolution (Wilkes County). Nathaniel - Granted 200 acres of "Western Land" in Wilkes County, North Carolina in 1788. At this time we are unaware of William Gilreath's origin but most settlers in North Carolina during the 1750's were of Scotch/Irish descent. William is listed in the Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.) Index, Volume II and his 3 oldest sons in Volume I (see Galbraith, Galbreath, Gilreath). Both William, Jr. (Captain) and Alexander (Sergeant) received pensions for their participation in the Revolutionary War. John died in 1802 (about 30 years before pensions were granted)......... Wilkes Co. North Carolina Gen. Soc. had published that Wm. Sr's father was either George or Alexander Gilreath. At a FHC (unproven entry) lists George as Wm's father. There is a Georg(e) Gilreith who has a brother Alexander residing Aberdeen, Scotland. In fact there are many Gilreiths in that area, many with similar family Christian names (Wm, James, John, Alexander, George, etc.). This Geroge was christened on 12 Mar 1687 at St. Nicholas Church in Aberdeen. He was married to Mary Murray on 11 Sep 1725 at the same church. By dates, it is possible that this is Wm's father. Since we all believe that Wm. Sr . was born around 1730. Based upon some of the other names listed for St. Nicholas church in Aberdeen from those records, I would sketch it out as follows. Remember, I KNOW this is speculation, but perhaps with your help we can verify.

For some of you that may be new to your Gilreath research.... The following can be found at any FHC on their Scottish Records CD.

William Gilreath came to Granville County, North Carolina from Virginia in about 1750. He is listed as "William Gilcrees" on a 1754 roster of the local militia of Granville County, a private in Captain Richard Coleman's Company of Colonel William Eaton's regiment. This list of militia members was, in effect, a census of the male population of Granville County at that time. In 1760 he received a Granville land grant of 680 acres which was proved in court on February 1, 1761 (Granville Co NC DB-D, p. 169). This tract was located on a branch of Hawtree Creek adjoining William Young, in the area where Benjamin Jones Jones' lived. On August 4, 1761, William Gilreath sold 340 acres of that tract, including land where he lived, to William Smith for thirty pounds (op. cit., P. 330). The deed described the land as located between Hawtree and Six Pound Creeks on Robertson's line. It was proved in Granville court on August 11, 1761. On March 6, 1780, after he had moved to Wilkes County, he sold the remaining 340 acres to Richard Inge of Dinwiddie County, Virginia for 1,500 pounds (Note: the price sounds too high). The tract was described as being on a branch of Hawtree Creek adjoining John Ellis, Adams Williams, John Thompson, Wm. Russell, Wm. Call (Keel?), Henry Fittes and Ephraim Ellis. The deed, signed with a flourish by Gilreath, was witnessed by Thomas Dance, John Inge, Benj. Perkins, acknowledged by Dance in the May 1780 session of court and registered on July 17, 1780 (Warren Co. NC DB-7, p. 320). The DAR Centennial Edition of the Patriot Index lists the following Gilreaths:
1. William Gilreath, Sr. b. 1730 d. ca 1795 .. CS (Civil Service) SC
2. John Gilreath b. 1750-56 d. Dec 1802 .. Soldier NC
3. William Gilreath, Jr. b. 4-28-1753 d. after 1833 .. Capt. NC PNSR (Pensioner)
4. Alexander Gilreath b. 11-15-1755 d 1838 .. Sergeant NC PNSR

In February 1778, the Bute County Court ordered Justices of the Peace in each District to administer a loyalty oath, pledging allegiance to the State of North Carolina and against King George 3rd, to qualify persons to vote in a coming election. Only five persons in the County refused to take the oath with William and his son John being two of the five. In August of 1779, William was ordered by the Court to show cause why he refused to take the oath. There is no record of his appearance in court but the challenge was moot because by November 1779 he had moved to Wilkes County where sons William, Jr. and Alexander were already living. Three of his sons remained behind in Bute County but by 1780 they were also living in Wilkes County. He served in the Revolution as a Captain in Col. Benjamin Cleveland's
Regiment. He was wounded in the leg at the Battle of King's Mountain. Three sons, Captain William Gilreath, Jr., Sergeant Alexander Gilreath and Private John Gilreath, also served during the war. William, Jr. and Alexander received pensions. John died before pensions were authorized.

William Gilreath, Sr. received these land grants in Wilkes County, North Carolina:
1. On March 3, 1779, he received a grant of 150 acres on the Little Fork of Cub Creek (Land Entry Book Wilkes County NC 1778-1781, compiled by Mrs. W. O. Absher).
2. Eight months later, he received a second grant of 250 acres in the same area, the south side of the Middle Fork of Little Cub Creek, "at the ford." (Ibid., p. 77). This location is about two or three miles southeast of Wilkesboro, NC. After he moved to South Carolina, on
October 22, 1792, William, Sr. sold 200 acres of the land on Little Cub Creek to William, Jr. for 100 pounds.
3. On March 30, 1780 he received a third grant, 400 acres on Crab Fork of the Little River "at or near the Virginia line", land that is now in
Alleghany County, NC (Ibid., p. 100).

Authority: Act of December 24, 1831

This act mandated that approximately a third of the 160-acre land districts to be laid out under the act of December 21, 1830, be designated as gold districts of 40 acres each and to be distributed in a separate lottery.

Date of Drawing: October 22, 1832-May 1, 1833

Counties

The original Cherokee Indian territory became Cherokee County by an Act of December 26, 1831. A law passed on December 3, 1832, divided original Cherokee County into ten counties: Cass (renamed Bartow), Cherokee, Cobb, Floyd, Forsyth, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Murray, Paulding, and Union. In the drawing of tickets and in the granting of the land, the area was treated only as Cherokee territory. It was divided between land lots distributed by the sixth land lottery and "gold" lots that were distributed by the seventh land lottery.

Sections and Land Districts
The territory was so expansive that Cherokee County was divided into four sections, and each section was divided into districts. There were 33 gold districts, and each was divided into gold lots.

First Section
Districts 1-5, 11-15

Second Section
Districts 1-3, 15-19, 21

Third Section
Districts 1-4, 17-21

Fourth Section
Districts 1-3, 16-17

288 A marriage record book with an index for Wilkinson County, GA lists a marriage between Edmund Clay and "Sallie" Jones. However, the county courthouse burned in 1854, and this record was destroyed. The Wilkinson County courthouse confirms that the marriage records are missing from 1828-1865. Those earlier and later than these two dates are on file.
 
Family F871
 
289 A search of the 1855 birth records for the burough of Manhattan failed to locate a birth record for John Oliver, Jr. No other NY boroughs kept records for this time period. Oliver, John Jr. (I94)
 
290 A second wife is listed on Euzema's death certificate (Nannie Chaires), in his obituary (Nannie Claires) and in his will (Nannie C). According to Euzema's will, she was declared legally insane at some point before his death, and was moved to a mental facility in Florida. No marriage certificate has been located for Euzema and Nannie in Decatur County or all of Florida. It is also not known when or where she died. The records at the Chattahoochee Mental Health facility do not go that far back. A memorial article for Menla Powell Rich, Euzema's first wife indicated that he was already married by 12 May 1935. Family F123
 
291 Abigail Bumgarner was born and raised in the small town of Wilkesboro, North Carolina, the ninth child in a family of fourteen, two of whom died as babies. Abigail attended public school in WIlkes County and was fond of writing and giving speeches. Some of her old papers, letters, and speeches exist today and were handed down through her children. She also wrote some songs, one of which was called "Gasoline Gus and His Gitney Bus."

After school, Abigail followed in her father's footsteps and became a Deputy Register of Deeds and a Justice of the Peace. According to a letter from the North Carolina Archives, she was one of the first female justices and was among a very small minority at the time. Her services must have been popular because she was eventually dubbed "The Marrying Magistrate." She performed over 482 ceremonies in just under eight years. Her fee was typically $0.50 to $1.00, as evidenced in her stenographic record book.

Her future husband, Bryan, had dated her two older sisters, Ruth and Mary at various times, but it was Abigail who eventually caught his eye. Being the prankster that he was, Bryan once brought a fake pile of dog mess with him as he came to pick up Gail for a date. Just before he walked in the door, he also scooped up a handful of snow, which quickly melted as he laid it on the floor beside the dog mess. When Abigail looked down, she saw the mess and yelled, "Mama! Come quick, someone let the dog in!" As soon as she turned her back, Bryan snatched up his "gag" and jammed it in his pocket!

When Abigail went on a date, her mama would not let her go out without taking her older single sister Pearl. This irked Abigail greatly. Pearl would spend hours primping for "her" date. She then sat out on the front porch swing to wait for the date to arrive. This was done to ensure Abigail would not forget (or slip away without) her.

Some time after Abigail became an adult, she shortened her name to "Gail." She and Bryan were both married relatively late in life. After marriage, Gail left her job and stayed at home to raise their two daughters. She enjoyed sunbathing, collecting antiques, and visiting her many siblings and their families. She and Bryan also enjoyed having bridge and poker parties from time to time.

294 According to a fellow Holdaway researcher, there was a scrap of paper in a family bible that lists Elizabeth b. 1775, Eleanor b.1800, Rebecca 1806, Boyd John b. 1807. I been unable to confirm beyond this paper. Holdaway, Boyd John (I4727)
 
295 According to Dianne Nestor Jone, a descendant of this couple, as reported 9 May 2006, "The bible I have was a gift from John Oliver to Ida Louella Gregory, purchased July 4, 1876." No inscription was present, listing their date of marriage. Family F54
 
296 According to family history, Jewel eloped with a pharmacist named Walter Milton and Euzema got in the car and went after her in another county. The marriage was very short-lived. Jewel went to Reno, alone, to obtain a divorce and while there, the boarding house where she was staying burned to the ground.
 
Family F905
 
297 According to family sources, Charles lied about his age so that he could enlist in the army in 1917. Therefore, his birth year is listed incorrectly on all army documents. Harrell, Charles Leonidus III (I11)
 
298 According to the Tennessee State Archives, there were courthouse fires in Morgan County, Tennessee, in 1826, 1870, and 1904. The wills for this county start in 1868 and probate records start in 1866. No Gilreaths were found in the will or probate indexes. Tax books are only available after 1881.

Additionally the following are available at the Tennessee Archives:
-chancery court minutes from 1865
-county court minutes from 1848
-circuit court minutes from 1840

The only other hope for Gilreath records is in the deed indexes, 1818-1914. These are available via Interlibrary Loan and I will be seeking them soon.
