WILLIAM WILLIAMS

 


2. JOSHUA4 WILLIAMS (WILLIAM3, UNK2, WILLIAM1 WILLIAMS) was born in Prince William Co. Va. He married SARAH.

Child of JOSHUA WILLIAMS and SARAH is:

i. ELIZABETH5 WILLIAMS.



3. EDWARD4 WILLIAMS (WILLIAM3, UNK2, WILLIAM1 WILLIAMS) was born 21 Oct 1731 in prince william co , va, and died 04 Sep 1804 in Montgomery, KY, USA. He married JEMIMA CARTER ANDERSON 1762 in prince william co va, daughter of WILLIAM CARTER and SARAH MUSE. She was born 1742 in VA, USA, and died in Warren, MO, USA.

Notes for EDWARD WILLIAMS:

WILLIAM WILLIAMS of Westmoreland County VA had siblings EDWARD,

JOSHUA & ANN (proven by EDWARD’S 1733 Westmoreland County VA will).

Their parents are unknown at this time. WILLIAM WILLIAMS was b.

c1700 (guesstimate) unknown location at this time. WILLIAM WILLIAMS

m. [ ? ] PROB Westmoreland County VA at some time BEF 1733

(daughter ELIZABETH b. BEF 1733). There were probably other children

born after ELIZABETH & before their son EDWARD b. 1738 but they

are unknown at this time. KNOWN children are ELIZABETH, EDWARD &

SUSANNAH.

EDWARD WILLIAMS (heir-at-law) s/o WILLIAM WILLIAMS of Westmoreland

was b. 1738 (he was [in sworn deposition] 58 years old in 1796) in

PROB Westmoreland VA. The WILLIAM WILLIAMS family removed from

Westmoreland County VA to Prince William County VA c1740 where

WILLIAM WILLIAMS & his brother-in-law RICHARD HAZELRIGG (husband of

ANN WILLIAMS) of Westmoreland County VA purchased land together in

1741 (deed of sale of this PW land by his son EDWARD heir-at-law &

JEMIMAH WILLIAMS in 1771). WILLIAM WILLIAMS died BEF 1754 in Prince

William County VA leaving two MINOR children EDWARD WILLIAMS b.

1738 & SUSANNAH WILLIAMS who CHOSE their own guardian JOHN

ANDERSON (1754 PW guardianship bond). Child ELIZABETH WILLIAMS was

assumed to be either married or an adult.

EDWARD WILLIAMS b. 1738 voted in 1761 Prince William County VA. It

is supposition based on strong circumstantials that EDWARD WILLIAMS

b. 1738 PROB Westmoreland County VA married ABT 1762 in Prince

William County VA to JEMIMAH PROB CARTER b. c1742 PROB Prince

William County VA d/o [ ? ] CARTER & SARAH MUSE MUSE of Prince

William County VA (JEMIMAH [CARTER] WILLIAMS was named in her mother

SARAH MUSE MUSE CARTER THORN WILSON’S will). William Thorn of Prince

William County VA was JEMIMAH CARTER WILLIAMS’ stepfather.

EDWARD & JEMIMAH PROB CARTER WILLIAMS had a son DANIEL WILLIAMS (1804

deposition) b. 31 March 1763 (born NO other claimed year than

1763) PROB Prince William County VA (since THAT is where his

parents EDWARD & JEMIMAH were in 1763...I use PROB for location only

because there is no birth certificate, Bible record or any other

KNOWN proof for DANIEL b. 31 March 1763 s/o EDWARD & JEMIMAH’S

birth ANYWHERE but it is KNOWN that he was BORN where his PARENTS

were...and they were KNOWN to be IN Prince William County VA AT THE

LEAST between 1761 & 1776). DANIEL WILLIAMS’ headstone at Old Caney

Cemetery Floyd County KY claims that he was 57 years 4 months 0

days old when he died 31 July 1820 in FLOYD COUNTY KY. DANIEL

WILLIAMS of FLOYD COUNTY KY never set foot in MORGAN County KY...it

was formed 1822 AFTER his death...altho the cemetery where he & his

wife VIOLET COUCH (d. 1830 Morgan County KY) are buried is, since

1822, in Morgan County KY).

EDWARD WILLIAMS is documented in Prince William County VA until at least 1776...records show he came to Boonesborough on the Caintuck River in the Spring 1779 (no earlier...sworn deposition) and while it is unknown whether JEMIMAH (his ONE & ONLY KNOWN wife) & the rest of his family came with him at first it IS known that his entire family lived below Boonesborough for about 2 ½ years before settling on their 400 acre preemption on Lulbegrud Creek (in what became CLARK, then MONTGOMERY Counties KY).

EDWARD WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud Creek Montgomery County KY was never

THOMAS Edward WILLIAMS b. 17 October 1731 Chester County PA or

THOMAS Edward Williams of ANYWHERE else. The claim that EDWARD

WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud was married to (2) Jemimah Anderson in

Boonesborough was based on one partially flawed biography written

by Missouri descendants of CALEB C. WILLIAMS s/o EDWARD & JEMIMAH

PROB CARTER WILLIAMS long after CALEB C. WILLIAMS was deceased...and

there is NO PROOF for it. To the best of MY knowledge EDWARD WILLIAMS

b. 1738 PROB Westmoreland County VA s/o WILLIAM & [ ? ] WILLIAMS

of Westmoreland was NEVER married to a Jamima Anderson d/o a

John Anderson b. c1715 Bedford England. There is also NO PROOF for

that. That EDWARD WILLIAMS was married to a JEMIMAH is documented

in VA & KY. The circumstantials of place, time, location say that

woman was JEMIMAH CARTER. As an aside, JEMIMAH PROB CARTER

WILLIAMS’ name was ALWAYS spelled JEMIMAH with an “h” at the end.



The STB children of EDWARD & JEMIMAH PROB CARTER WILLIAMS were:

DANIEL; JOSHUA; PENELOPE; CALEB C.; CASPER (no known info on this

child); SUSANNAH and PROB WINIFRED “Winnie” WILLIAMS...there may BE

more...if there are they are unknown at this time. There is NO KNOWN

proof that SUSANNAH WILLIAMS was born at Fort Boonesborough....nor is

it KNOWN that she was the Susannah who m; Charles Kirby.

EDWARD & JEMIMAH PROB CARTER WILLIAMS were religious dissenters

(BAPTISTS) of modest (financial) means...records show he was indigent

when he got his 400 acre preemption on Lulbegrud (made improvements,

raised corn, qualified...paid no money) lived on Lulbegrud Creek,

farmed there, fought Indians there, was an RW Patriot there, raised

his family there, went to church there, was a deacon in the church

there, drank a little too much there, and died there on Lulbegrud

Creek in Montgomery County KY on 04 September 1804 (widely claimed

but the SOURCE is unknown at this time) leaving his widow JEMIMAH

PROB CARTER WILLIAMS living on the home plantation in Montgomery

County KY with her son CALEB C. WILLIAMS & his family. JEMIMAH

eventually moved to Floyd County KY c1811 to probably live with

another one of her children and died in PROB Morgan County KY, a

destitute widow on the County dole.

As to DANIEL & VIOLET COUCH WILLIAMS’ children...I don’t have ELIJAH WILLIAMS m. ELIZABETH PRATER as a child of DANIEL & VIOLET. Could be...I just don’t have that. Is there any proof that you know of?

Daniel & Violet’s STB son ISAAC WILLIAMS m. 25 April 1820 ELIZABETH “Betsy” LYKINS (you’re right...she was not Elizabeth Prater).

The BTB sons of Daniel & Violet are: JOHN T; THORNTON; ISAAC;

CALEB; Jas. JEREMIAH V. The KNOWN daughters of Daniel & Violet are:

NANCY; ELIZABETH “Betsy” ; EDITH, “Edy” ; WINIFRED “Winnie.” The

STB daughters of Daniel & Violet are: FRANCES “Frankie” and MARY

“Polly.”

There is at least one more male child, unidentified at this time.

Past claims have been made for a JOSHUA s/o Daniel & a DANIEL s/o

Daniel...it’s a work in progress.

If ANY group member wishes to ADD to or MODIFY this post...or

SUPPORT this post...or TRASH this post...go for it...I have to get

ready for my daughter’s 36th birthday dinner...(I just REALIZED today

as I was thinking about HER birthday that my oldest son who died would

have been 50 years old this month...GOOD HEAVENS...where did ALL the

years go? LSH





If you will indulge me I would like to go back to EDWARD’S land on

Lulbegrud (and Caintuck, for that matter). With the posting of the

CREECH descendant DAR application and the response to my question

about re-writing it TODAY plus DANI’S question about DUDLEY’S 100

acres, I’m not sure we’re all on the same page AND I want to be sure

that we ARE. This is my take on what was what...let’s talk about

EDWARD’S land on LULBEGRUD...and then have discussion until I, and

everyone else who is interested, am sure that I/we are on solid

ground concerning EDWARD WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud and ONLY the EDWARD

WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud.

EDWARD WILLIAMS sold his father WILLIAM’S land in PW in 1771 (lease & release). No record has been found as yet as to whether he bought other land or had land in PW after that. EDWARD WILLIAMS came to Boonesborough in 1779 (no OTHER year) with NICHOLAS ANDERSON & JOHN HARPER (who else, if any, came with them is unknown at this time).

They obviously KNEW in PW about the Commonwealth’s new land law
(an enticement to draw people to settle in the wilderness) concerning

the settlement of lands in Caintuck...any new settler could come in

& claim up to 400 acres of unclaimed land by making improvements

(clear it, chop it, build a hut or cabin, plant a corn crop, mark

it, indicate by their presence that they were going to live on it

for at least one year)...this land, the settlement or pre-emption,

was obtained for a cheap price and the settler could also

purchase up to 1,000 acres which must adjoin the 400 acre

settlement/pre-emption for a higher price. In June of the year 1779

a group of about 12 to 15 men, all living at Boonesborough and

including EDWARD, NICHOLAS & JOHN, went across the Caintuck River and

up the Lulbegrud for the purpose of finding unclaimed land for their

settlement/pre-emption claims. They brought tools and were prepared to

make improvements...which they did. Yaw’ll all know that EDWARD

picked a spot across a branch from JOHN and south of NICHOLAS out

there on Lulbegrud where he cleared some land, built a cabin & fence

and planted some corn...THAT DAY. He marked this place with his

initials and the number 400 (his 400 acre settlement/preemption.

NICHOLAS & JOHN did likewise...when JOHN talked about this day he told

about EDWARD building his cabin and then he used “WE” when he was

asked if the way the land was to run or be laid out was

discussed...he said no, it wasn’t...only that it was agreed that the

branch would be the dividing line between his & EDWARD’S land and

then, because the Commonwealth’s land office had not yet been

opened in Boonesborough, he said, “...we did not know at that time

how we was to obtain the lands.” WHEN the Commonwealth’s land

office opened at Boonesborough I would imagine they were FIRST in

line to file their settlement/pre-emption claims. A commission

heard their claims & it was determined that they qualified...warrants

were issued for their pre-emptions, 400 acres each, on Lulbegrud (I

have posted these on group). There is NO evidence that EDWARD,

NICHOLAS or JOHN exercised their option to purchase the additional

1,000 acres adjoining their pre-emptions which they could have at

the same time for paying a higher price. As a matter of fact EDWARD

didn’t even pay the “cheap” price for his 400 acre pre-emption as he

was said to be indigent (as were a lot of folks who struggled to get

to Caintuck for the land). SO, that’s the first 400 acres that EDWARD

WILLIAMS, NICHOLAS ANDERSON & JOHN HARPER owned on

Lulbegrud....that’s their settlement/pre-emption which had NOTHING to

do with service in the militia or the Continental line or the RW or as

participants in the Corn Compact at Boonesborough. This

settlement/pre-emption offer of 400 acres was made to EVERYONE who

would come to the wilderness & stay on the land for at least a year.

The corn planted on their pre-emptions on the NORTH side of the river

had nothing to do with the corn they helped grow on the SOUTH side of

the river. NOW, by the description of the land this 400 acres is

where EDWARD, JEMIMAH and children settled...the HOME PLANTATION was

located right THERE. You know, there’s a map (c1804) in the

original records of the Fayette land depositions that shows on

p.814 the exact place where EDWARD, NICHOLAS & JOHN built their

cabins...I’m trying to remember who came in and swooped up those

records...a collection held where? I know it’s been posted but I

don’t, at this moment, remember where they’re held...not Filson but

somewhere else...oh, well. I have the Fayette County Kentucky

Records Vol. 1 by the Cooks which covers this time period (it does

NOT contain the map).



We KNOW by deed that EDWARD & JEMIMAH sold DANIEL 100 acres of this

400 acre settlement/pre-emption. We KNOW by the 1800 Tax List (deed

missing) that EDWARD & JEMIMAH gave/sold DUDLEY & PENELOPE 100 acres

of this pre-emption (by location of DUDLEY’S line & EDWARD’S line

described in a deed). We KNOW that EDWARD & JEMIMAH sold CALEB C.

112 acres of this settlement/pre-emption, the “home plantation,” in

1803. EDWARD died 1804. We KNOW that JOHN ANDERSON got some small

part of this settlement/pre-emption.

THAT’S the FIRST 400 acres...a settlement/pre-emption gained by the Commonwealth’s land law which offered ANY settler who came to the wilderness to SETTLE 400 acres of cheap land for risking their lives and the lives of their families to populate the wilderness.

Does anyone want to ask questions...maybe expand on the law? Make

corrections? Add anything I’ve left out? I have to go to bed...I’ll

talk about the next piece of land tomorrow. LSH

Recorded the 5th day of June 1734------------

Thank you for posting the proofs on the REAL father of the Elder Daniel
Willliams of Floyd/Morgan Counties KY. The TRUE father of Daniel Williams

b.1763 WAS the EDWARD WILLIAMS (Rev. Patriot) of Lulbegrud Creek

Montogmery County KY. These proofs are readily available to anyone seeking

the truth; they are irrefutable and prove beyond a doubt that EDWARD

WILLIAMS b. c1740 (from one DAR Application...circa date used only as a

guideline since the DAR information on Edward Williams is based on empty

air in several cases) PROB VA d. 1804 (there is a complete death date

widely claimed but I can’t use it because I have not been able to

ascertain the source) in Montgomery County KY WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT the

father of our Elder Daniel Williams of Floyd/Morgan Counties KY. Our Elder

Daniel Williams b.1763 was NOT the son of UNKNOWN WILLIAMS (most often

claimed with no proof to be Thomas “Edward” Williams whose identity is

also claimed with NO proof) m. to Mary Emory m. (2) Evan Davis, Jr. (Evan

Davis, Jr & Mrs. Mary Emory Williams were the grandparents of JEFFERSON

DAVIS with whom our EDWARD WILLIAMS & his son Daniel Williams had NO

connection). The claim that Elder Daniel Williams b. 1763 of Floyd/Morgan

Counties KY was the s/o Thomas “Edward” Williams m. Mary Emory has been

proven to be completely erroneous. While EDWARD WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud is

KNOWN to be the father of Elder Daniel Williams of Floyd/Morgan, the

parents of EDWARD WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud are unknown, even tho there are

several claims which have been debunked, and there is no proof of his

origin at this time. EDWARD WILLIAMS, along with his compatriot NICHOLAS

ANDERSON who was with him until their deaths in Montgomey County KY, is

listed as a member of Chopawamsic Baptist Church Stafford County VA in

1767. Nicholas Anderson’s wife Barbara is also a member as well as a

Jemimah Williams. EDWARD WILLIAMS’ son Daniel b. 1763 would have been c4

years old in 1767. I believe (no proof) Daniel Williams was b. in VA. I

also believe his mother was Jemimah (Anderson) Williams at Chopawamsic.

The Stafford County VA records were totally destroyed during the Civil War

so I doubt any further proof on Edward Williams & Nicholas Anderson will

ever come from there. However, there is some documentation that a large

group of people from Chopawamsic Stafford County VA migrated 1769 to the

Watauga River Settlements VA (attached later to NC). Mr. James O. McKee,

Jr., known WILLIAMS Family researcher for 40+ years, believed that EDWARD

WILLIAMS came to the Kentucky Wilderness with Daniel Boone from the

Watagua Settlements NC. THIS statement may be true...however, the records

of the Wataugan settlers from Virginia were mostly destroyed prior to the

annexation to North Carolina. Kentucky records, as you posted and others,

show that EDWARD WILLIAMS came to the Kentucky Wilderness in 1779. In

Daniel Boones’s timeline it is stated that he did bring a large group of

settlers through the Cumberland Gap on the Wilderness Trail from the

Watauga Settlements in 1779. There is no compiled list of the names of

these settlers but most have been included on a list of Early Settlers of

Boonesborough (now Madison County KY) (NOT to be confused with the

BUILDERS of Fort Boonesborough). EDWARD WILLIAMS, Nicholas Anderson, John

Harper & his brother Peter, ALL from Chopawamsic, are on that list. EDWARD

WILLIAMS lived about two years at Boonesborough before settling at

Anderson’s Station on Hinkston Lulbegrud next to Nicholas Anderson and

across the creek from John Harper. I have no doubt in my mind that EDWARD

WILLIAMS at Chopawamsic was EDWARD WILLIAMS at Lulbegrud...and EDWARD

WILLIAMS at Lulbegrud was the father of ELDER DANIEL WILLIAMS as well as

Caleb C. Williams, Josuha Williams, Penelope Williams, Casper? Williams &

Susannah. Daniel’s father EDWARD WILLIAMS was documented alive in 1804

Montgomery County KY. He died 1804 in Montgomery County KY. Elder Daniel

Williams’ father was NOT the erroneously claimed “in stone” Thomas

“Edward” Williams who it is claimed m. Mary Emory who had two Williams

sons Isaac & Daniel. The Widow Mary Emory Williams’ first husband UNPROVEN

WILLIAMS but claimed-to-be Thomas Edward Williams is said to have DIED

c1754 in PA...Widow Mary Emory Williams m. c1755 (2) Evan DAVIS, Jr. s/o

Evan, Sr. The Elder Daniel Williams’ (NOT the son of Mary Emory Williams)

FATHER Edward Williams of Lulbegrud lived 50 years beyond the death of the

first husband of Mary Emory Williams. The Elder Daniel Williams’ FATHER

Edward Williams DIED 1804 in Montgomery County KY.





EDWARD WILLIAMS s/o WILLIAM WILLIAMS & [ ? ] of Westmoreland County

VA was born c1738/40 in either Westmoreland or Prince William County

VA. He PROB married JEMIMAH PROB CARTER in c1762 in Prince

William County VA and son DANIEL WILLIAMS was b. 1763 in PROB

Prince William County VA.

EDWARD WILLIAMS, NICHOLAS ANDERSON & JOHN HARPER signed the Occoquan

Baptist Church Dettingen Parish Prince William County VA 1776

Freedom of Religion petition with their OWN signatures. EDWARD

WILLIAMS, NICHOLAS ANDERSON & JOHN HARPER migrated to the Virginia

wilderness on the Caintuck River and were at Boonesborough by

Spring of 1779. I have no objection to the claim that EDWARD

WILLIAMS came “with” DANIEL BOONE but ONLY in 1779 with the “great

migration” and ONLY if the claim says THEY, EDWARD WILLIAMS, NICHOLAS

ANDERSON & JOHN HARPER of Prince William County VA came together.

It is possible that THEY did come from the Watauga Settlements with

the large group of settlers led by DANIEL BOONE in 1779

(NICHOLAS’ cousin PRESLEY ANDERSON has been documented as having

come with his family in the “great migration of 1779”) but there’s NO

proof for EDWARD, NICHOLAS & JOHN coming from the Watauga Settlements

of which I am aware at this time...EDWARD WILLIAMS was NOT from North

Carolina nor is there ANY documented proof that he married a

“Jemimah Anderson at Boonesborough” (and JEMIMAH m. EDWARD

certainly was NOT the daughter of Major John “Jack” ANDERSON s/o

Presley & Elizabeth Steel ANDERSON)...to the contrary, EDWARD

WILLIAMS was PROB married c1762 to JEMIMAH (PROB CARTER) b. c1742

d/o [ ? ] & SARAH MUSE MUSE CARTER in PROB Prince William County VA

before the birth of DANIEL WILLIAMS b. 1763 PROB Prince William County

VA.

It is indicative of the errors made on the early EDWARD WILLIAMS research when this book/document claims that EDWARD WILLIAMS was married to JEMIMAH ANDERSON at Boonesborough after 1779 on the one hand...and claims just below it that EDWARD WILLIAMS & his wife JEMIMAH WILLIAMS were at Chopawamsic in 1767 on the other hand.

I KNOW that EDWARD WILLIAMS & his wife JEMIMAH PROB CARTER were at

Chopawamsic Baptist Church Chopawamsic Creek in Stafford County

VA in 1767...however, it is MY belief based on proofs that EDWARD &

JEMIMAH PROB CARTER WILLIAMS were LIVING in Dettingen Parish Prince

William County VA (across the Creek) on the land EDWARD’S deceased

father WILLIAM WILLIAMS of Westmoreland purchased in PW 1741, not

LIVING IN Stafford County...we have researched these folks on the

Chopawamsic Church records for several years now...all of that is in

our message archives...<BigGrin>...



TOM, what is that word in the paragraph “Williams’ 400-acre

preemption was surveyed by James French in 1783 and a grant was

issued in 1784. The depositions refer to Williams’ ‘poor right,’

indicating that he qualified as an... WHAT?...it says “4ent.” WHAT is

4ent?..and did not have to pay for his preemption.” My understanding

is that he earned his 400 acre preemption by marking his claim,

erecting a cabin & planting a corn crop in 1779.

Also, please NOTE that DANIEL WILLIAMS s/o EDWARD and DUDLEY CURLE

son-in-law of EDWARD were named as two “disintrusted” (I trust they

MEANT “disinterested”) inhabitants of said county Clark were present

when the depositions were taken at NICHOLAS ANDERSON’S

property...1796...along with NICHOLAS ANDERSON and witnesses EDWARD

WILLIAMS, JOHN HARPER, JAMES FRENCH & ABIHU ANDERSON s/o

NICHOLAS....signed by our “good friend” Jilson

UPDATE: Recent research in Virginia has uncovered records which lead the EAST KENTUCKY WILLIAMS’ research group to believe that EDWARD WILLIAMS of Dettingen Parish Prince William County VA was married ONCE prior to 1763 to JEMIMAH CARTER d/o UNKNOWN CARTER & SARAH MUSE MUSE CARTER THORN WILSON and NOT JEMIMAH “ANDERSON” as has been claimed (not proven) for years. We find NO evidence that EDWARD WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud b. c1740 PROB Cople Parish Westmoreland County VA d. 1804 Montgomery County KY was EVER married more than ONCE and that was to JEMIMAH PROB CARTER of Prince William County VA. Their son DANIEL WILLIAMS was born 1763 PROB Prince William County VA. We believe that EDWARD WILLIAMS was the s/o WILLIAM WILLIAMS of Westmoreland County VA & UNKNOWN UNKNOWN who removed to Prince William County VA PRIOR to 1742. We have found records that place EDWARD WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud in Prince William County VA as late as 1776. He removed to Boonesborough in what is now Kentucky in 1779. This EDWARD WILLIAMS of Lulbegrud is claimed to be the father of PENELOPE WILLIAMS m. DUDLEY CURL(E). This WILLIAMS research is VERY active & on-going. Lee Strohm Harrell



Notes for JEMIMA CARTER ANDERSON:

Jemima Williams and husband Edward Williams leased 207 acres in Prince William

Co., VA, in Feb. 1771/72. She was not named in the abstract of her mother’s

1782 will that was sent to Elmer Thorn by Donald L. Wilson, Librarian, of the

Prince William Public Library System on Mar. 16, 2005. However, “Jemimah

Williams” WAS named in the full transcription of her mother’s will that Jake

Thorn and Elmer Thorn kindly sent me.

Well, I went to the FHC today and filled in some of the dates and

uploaded a file which covers part of 1752 and 1753. I got somewhat

side-tracked today with the 1754 and 1755 stuff and didn’t have time

to finish up with the earlier. I’ll be adding to the file I uploaded

on my computer and keep replacing the file here with a newer version

whenever I update. I did not put pages 6 & 7 which I transcribed in

an earlier post but will update it in the next batch. The correct

date for that (suit between Thomas Brown & Richard Hazelrig where

Nicholas Anderson & Elizabeth Anderson were witnesses) was 28 May 1752.



I looked up the guardian stuff for Edward & Susannah. This is the

transcript:



Edward and Susanna Williams orphans of William Williams deced [sic]

made choice of John anderson for their Guardian who with John Metcalf

William Baylis and Thomas Machen Enter into bond. [26 Nov 1754]

Not anything more than we knew. I did go through all the Williams

listed in the index prior to this hoping to see something regarding

William’s estate—even the appointing of an administrator if he died

intestate but there was nothing.



I looked up the stuff about the cloth suit and Thomas Anderson is

listed first: Thomas Anderson having attended one day as a witness

for richard Grigsly against Aaron Chamblin Ordered that the said

Richard do pay him for the same according to Law. Jemima Anderson was

listed next and Mary Anderson following her. Now, are they all young

people (males can testify at 14 and females at 12) or is Thomas

married to Jemima and Mary is their daughter, or vice versa??? That’s

the question. I found Jemima previously as “an Evidence” for Richard

Grigsby in the same suit but that was dated 27 Mar 1754. I’ll have to

go back and look through the page and see if Thomas or Mary was there.

Maybe she went once and then came back. Still have a lot to go

through on this section as well as finishing up the other section.



There was a Chandler CARTER orphan of William CARTER deceased, who was

bound to a Solomon Jones to learn the trade of blacksmith. He was

bound by his own free and voluntary consent. This was 25 Mar 1754.

Could he be one of Sarah’s children?



There was also a lengthy (almost a full page) entry regarding a suit

between Thomas Chilton, Gent. (Plaintiff) and Nicholas Anderson on 26

Aug 1754. I have to get it printed out and transcribed. It mentions

that the defendant (Nicholas) is a tenant of Gilson Berryman of

Stafford County and apparently deals with debts owed.



Jemima Williams and husband Edward Williams leased 207 acres in Prince William

Co., VA, in Feb. 1771/72. She was not named in the abstract of her mother’s

1782 will that was sent to Elmer Thorn by Donald L. Wilson, Librarian, of the

Prince William Public Library System on Mar. 16, 2005. However, “Jemimah

Williams” WAS named in the full transcription of her mother’s will that Jake

Thorn and Elmer Thorn kindly sent me.



Children of EDWARD WILLIAMS and JEMIMA ANDERSON are:

i. WINIFRED5 WILLIAMS.



Notes for WINIFRED WILLIAMS:

Larry, I believe Winnie is possibly the daughter of Edward Williams, my

ancestor. Since Edward’s son Daniel Williams and his son-in-law Dudley

Curle who was married to Penelope Williams are listed on the marriage

record. Winnie would be the right age also, and family accounts of her

descendants claim she was at Boonesborough very early on. Edward Williams

came to Kentucky and settled at Fort Boonesborough in 1779. He lived

outside the fort for awhile and then moved to Lulbegrud Creek area of what

became Montgomery County, formed from Clark County. I would like to know

more about where the Herring family came from. Do you know if they tie in

with the Williams family before coming to Kentucky? My email is

Joshua is buried in an unmarked grave on the Joshua BARTLETT Farm, South of

Falling Water, Putnam Co., TN. His Will was dated Sep. 23, 1823 and proven July

4 or 14, 1828, White Co., TN. Winifred WILLIAMS BARTLETT is buried in Brown’s

Mill or Hiram Brown Cemetery, Putnam Co., TN.

From the Early History of Putnam County, Tennessee , by W. S. Mcclain, 1925:

Joshua BARTLETT and wife (Winnie, nee WILLIAMS) moved from Boonesborough, KY

with their eight children about the year 1808 and built a cabin on the south

bank of Falling Water, near the location of the concrete bridge on the new

highway through there.

Later Mr. BARTLETT erected a larger and better residence (now occupied by Dudley

FARLEY) near the original cabin, which was then used for several years as a

church and school house, but was finally abandoned for a new building on the

north bank of Falling River, the site of the present Brown’s Mill Church. The

BARTLETT children were named Daniel, Nathan, Joseph, Edith, Rebecca, Dorcas,

Nancy and Penelope. Another daughter, Hester, was born in their new home in

1812, and was the grandmother of Claude BROWN, who gave us this information. Mr.

BROWN’s mother, widow of the late Hyram BROWN, now in her 87th year, remembers

clearly the details of the capture of Daniel BOONE’s daughters by the Indians,

in a raid on Boonesborough, as related by her mother. The original entry of land

by Mr. BARTLETT embraced 360 acres on Falling Water, the bottom land thickly

covered by tall cane.

Notes for DANIEL WILLIAMS:

ell,  while everybody is sick, off skiing, busy with  taxes, just

trying to  stay warm, irritated with me for  being a

nit-picker...<BigGrin>...I’ve been re-reading some of the  OLD ERRONEOUS

claims  on DANIEL to  figure out where the stuff came from...sometimes

you can’t  fault  people  TOO  heavily  because,  after all,  IT  was in

a BOOK...like  this one... “Patriarchs  of the  Hills:  Baptist

Ministers  of Appalachia”  Vol. 1, Elder Wesley Yonts. McDowell Pub:

1993...this one claims  DANIEL  was  b. 1753  NC  s/o  Edward & Mary

Emery Williams.   FACT:   DANIEL  was  b. 31 March 1763  PROB  Prince

williamCounty VA  s/o  EDWARD b. c1738  &  JEMIMAH  PROB  CARTER  b.

c1742  WILLIAMS.   Next claim says DANIEL came to Kentucky  in  the

1770s & preached with  Elder Squire Boone. FACT:  Well, that  claim

wasn’t SO bad...EDWARD  WILLIAMS came to Caintuck in 1779  when  DANIEL

was 16  and EDWARD & his son DANIEL did join  PROVIDENCE CHURCH  on

Howard’s Creek  in  1787  but   I don’t find that Elder Boone  was a

preaching  contemporary  of DANIEL’S  THAT early (1770s) but they did

know each other at Providence Church  on Howard’s Creek in the late

1780s  (Squire Boone was baptised there)  (Daniel was 21 years old in

1784...24 years old when  he joined the church) where they were both

members  and it is possible that Squire Boone did  OFFICIATE  at the

marriage of DANIEL & VIOLET COUCH  c1786/1787  or so.  HOWEVER,  the

book claims that  DANIEL married VIOLET  at Boonville on  his  SECOND

trip  to  Kentucky  in 1775.  FACT: There is NO marriage record extant

for DANIEL & VIOLET COUCH  who  were  MOST PROB  married  AFT 1784 ~ BEF

the birth  of their first child FRANCES WILLIAMS b. c1787.  DANIEL &

VIOLET  certainly could have been  married at Boonesborough...or married

at the church  on  Howard’s Creek  in Bourbon County   where  DANIEL  &

the WILLIAMS family of Lulbegrud Fayette County were members.  There is

NO  RECORD that shows  DANIEL WILLIAMS was in Caintuck BEFORE  1779

when  his father EDWARD is KNOWN to have arrived...therefore NO second

trip...NO trip in 1775...the first trip...the only trip... was 1779.

DANIEL WILLIAMS did not  come  with Daniel Boone to help build  Ft.

Boonesborough  in 1775.  FACT:  DANIEL WILLIAMS  b. 31 March  1763  PROB

Prince William County VA  s/o  EDWARD & JEMIMAH PROB CARTER WILLIAMS

came  to Caintuck  in the Spring  of  1779  as a 16 year old boy  if he

came with his father or sometime  AFT  Spring of 1779  if  JEMIMAH &

the children came  after EDWARD did.   The  next claim is that Elder

Daniel Williams  helped  to  organize Lulbegrud Baptist Church on

Lulbegrud Creek  in  Montgomery County KY  in  March 1793.   FACT:

Lulbegrud Creek was in CLARK County KY in 1793.  Montomery County KY

was cut from Clark County in  1797.   I don’t know how much DANIEL was

involved in the organizing of Lulbegrud  Baptist  Church...EDWARD

WILLIAMS was a deacon there...his son JOSHUA was a member there and

EDWARD’S  son DANIEL is listed as ELDER DANIEL  WILLIAMS  there.  ELDER

DANIEL WILLIAMS did become the pastor  there in c1799  and remained for

several years.

The next claim is that DANIEL  WILLIAMS moved  to  MORGAN County KY  in

the 1780s and built the first log cabin in  West Liberty  when this was

still the wilderness. FACT (here it comes again):  ELDER DANIEL WILLIAMS

never set foot in MORGAN County KY  in his lifetime.  He LIVED & DIED

in FLOYD County KY.   Morgan County was not formed from FLOYD  County

until after DANIEL WILLIAMS died  31 July 1820  in FLOYD County KY.   He

was buried at Old Caney Cemetery in FLOYD County KY.  DANIEL WILLIAMS’

grave is NOW located in Morgan County KY...his widow  VIOLET  COUCH

WILLIAMS  who survived him  by 10 years  died in Morgan County KY  in

1830 and is buried with  him  in  Old Caney Cemetery  in Morgan County

KY.

The  next claim is that ELDER DANIEL WILLIAMS became the first moderator

for the  Burning Springs Association. FACT:  That seems to be fact.  LSH 

 

DANIEL &  (MARY) VIOLET COUCH WILLIAMS  were enumerated on the 1810

Floyd County KY census  with  5 boys  &  5 girls.  This was DANIEL

WILLIAMS’  last census.  Last year I attempted to identify the 10

children   living  in the  1810  household  based on  what we have

learned  as we have researched  (msg #2478).  When I was in the archives

a couple of days ago  I  realized there  were one or two things that

needed to be tweaked.

FRANCES  “Frankie”  AKA “Frankey” WILLIAMS  b.  c1787   based on  her stated  age as  63  on the 1850  census  with her husband PETER A. DAY.

(DANIEL & VIOLET’S  marriage year is  supposited  as  BEF c1787

Boonesborough  by the birth of this child  being  c1787).   The 1850

census is the only census  where  Frances “Frankie”  Williams Day is

named.   She is not on the  1860  census  and  her husband PETER A. DAY

married a   Widow Mrs. HANNAH  FANNIN  in  1854.   I therefore  claimed

“Frankie”   died  AFT 1850 - BEF 1854. THEN I found FRANCES  “Frankie”

WILLIAMS  DAY’S  death  record  in  the KY Deaths database...”DAY,

Franky  d.  20 October  1853  age 60  F  Married  Elk Fork  Morgan

County KY  of  Complications.”   SO!   Which  age is correct?   63 in

1850?  60 in 1853?  WHEN was she born?   No certain way to  KNOW  given

we have a census  age  of 63  in  1850 when she was still  ALIVE  &  an

age  of 60  in 1853  given  by an  INFORMANT  after her  DEATH.  

The genealogical rule is to take the data NEAREST the event...in this case  the 1850  census which claims  she was 63 in 1850  is NEAREST her birth.  I  stated last year that I was inclined  to  continue to  claim that  FRANCES “Frankie”  WILLIAMS  was b. c1787  based on the  1850 age of  63  with a notation  stating  that  the informant  on her death record  gave  her age as 60 when she died 20 October  1853. 

1. FRANCES “Frankie”  WILLIAMS signed her own  permission  to marry  16 February 1811  PETER  A. DAY in Floyd County KY. She was over  21.  Therefore, I believe   FRANCES  “Frankie”  WILLIAMS  was on  DANIEL  & VIOLET’S  1810  census...1 female  of 16  Under  25  (age  23).

(JOHN T. WILLIAMS b.  1789  m.  21 September  1809  Phoebe  Ferguson was NOT  in the 1810 household of Daniel & Violet...he was enumerated as head of household  living  two  houses from Daniel...of 16 Under 25...age  21).

2. THORNTON WILLIAMS  was b. c1792. He did not marry  VIRGINIA “Jinny” AKA Jean  JONES  until  19 March 1812  in Floyd County KY.  Therefore, I believe  THORNTON WILLIAMS  was on  DANIEL & VIOLET’S  1810 census...1 male  of 16 Under 25  (age 18).

(NANCY WILLIAMS  was  b.  c1794  &  married  19 March  1809   DAVID LYKINS in Floyd County  and was NOT  on Daniel & Violet’s 1810 census.  David Lykins  was HH  of 16  Under 25  in  1810 with wife NANCY  of 10 Under 15...[age  15]).

3. ELIZABETH  “Betsy”  WILLIAMS  was b. c1796  and married  00 June 1813 John Ferguson in Floyd County KY.   I  believe ELIZABETH  was IN the household of Daniel & Violet in 1810...female  of  10 Under 15...(age 14).

4.  ISAAC  WILLIAMS  b. c1798   m.  25 April  1820  ELIZABETH LYKINS  in Floyd County KY.   I believe  ISAAC  was in the household of Daniel & Violet  in  1810...male of  10  Under 15...(age 12).

5.  EDITH “Edy” WILLIAMS  b. c1803  m.  20 January 1820  RICHARD ALLEN in Floyd County KY.  I believe  EDITH  was in  the 1810  household  of Daniel & Violet...female  Under 10...(age 7).

6.  WINIFRED  “Winnie” WILLIAMS  b. c1805  m.  20 September  1821  PETER LYKINS  in Floyd County KY.  I  believe  WINIFRED  was in the  1810 household  of Daniel & Violet...female  Under 10...(age  5).

7. MARY EMILY  “Polly”  WILLIAMS  b. c1807  m. 13 January 1825   JOSEPH DAVIS  in  Morgan County  KY.  I believe  MARY  was in the 1810 household  of Daniel & Violet...female Under 10...(age  3).

8.  CALEB  WILLIAMS b.  12 September  1809  m.  26 August 1826  MALINDA DAVIS  in Morgan County KY.   I believe  CALEB  was in the household of Daniel & Violet in 1810...male Under 10...( an infant Under age  1).  

9.  And then  there’s the problem  with Jas. JEREMIAH VARDEMAN WILLIAMS

whose headstone in Johnson County KY  says he was b.  1808  but a

complete date STB  from his family  Bible  (which I do not have &  have

never seen with my own  eyes)  claims  b.  11 November 1811.   If  Jas

JEREMIAH VARDEMAN  WILLIAMS  was on the 1810  census for Daniel & Violet

then he would be  one of the  males  Under 10.  But if he were not born

until 1811 then he would NOT be on the 1810 census.   There are  3

males Under 10  on the 1810  census.   CALEB has a complete birthdate

of  12  September  1809  so  it is a given that HE was one of the boys

UNDER 10.   That  leaves  2 boys UNDER 10  in 1810.   I had originally

had Jas  JEREMIAH  VARDEMAN  WILLIAMS as one of the boys  UNDER 10

based on the  b.  1808  on  his headstone.   My  tendency  is to STAY

with the  b. 1808   for  what seems to  me to be a logical  reason...it

was told by  a  descendant  &  recorded  that DANIEL’S  last son  was

11/12  years old when  he, DANIEL,  died...well,  J.V. WAS the last

child  born  and if he were b. c1808   he  could have , in fact, been 11

years old  in his 12th year  in  1820  when  DANIEL died.   On the other

hand,  J. V.  was enumerated  in 1830  as  male of 15 Under 20.   Look

what THAT does.   So,  I am at a loss as to  what to  do with  him in

1810...ON the 1810  or NOT on the  1810?  If he IS,  then there’s  ONE

boy Under 10 not identified.  If  he’s NOT  then there are  TWO  boys

Under 10 not  identified.

1 male of 16 Under 25...THORNTON.

1 male  of 10 Under 15...ISAAC.

1 male Under 10...Unidentified  (he  would make a total of 12 children).

1 male Under  10...CALEB.

1 male  Under 10...J.V.  or NOT  J. V.       

There are 5 males in the 1810 household of Daniel & Violet.  At least

ONE is not identified...perhaps  TWO  if one of the Under 10s is not

J.V.

 

1 female  of 16 Under 25...FRANCES.

1 female  of  10 Under 15...ELIZABETH.

1 female  Under 10...EDITH.

1 female  Under 10...WINIFRED.

1 female  Under 10...MARY.

 

There are 5  females  in the  1810  household of Daniel & Violet.  All

are identified.

 

There are two  married children,  JOHN   T. and  NANCY    in their own

households in 1810.   With those  2  and the 10  in

vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvDaniel

& Violet’s household  in   1810  there are 12  children.   

 

Will yaw’ll please give it a go  &   tell me what about J. V....make

corrections, add  stuff,  ask questions, etc;    And if anyone has time

maybe we can pull some DEATH  date info from here & there for all the

kids  (we have CALEB’S from the headstone...supposedly  have J. V.’s

from the Bible...).   Later.  LSH      

 

Daniel Williams and Violet {Couch}{Crouch}

 

 

 

It can be said today that “It has been WRITTEN that

Daniel &

1.      ·        Violet married c1787 Boonesborough by Squire Boone” BUT the

2.      ·        location can just as easily be incorrect as any other

early

1.      ·        claim on Daniel (i.e. when he came to the wilderness).

>

2.      ·        The circa DATE for the marriage of Daniel & Violet is

based

3.      ·        on their daughter FRANCES “Frankey” WILLIAMS’ stated age

of 63

4.      ·        on the 1850 Morgan County KY census...1850 minus 63

equals b.

5.      ·        c1787. All the early researchers (prob. all long

deceased...we

6.      ·        don’t know if Mr. McKee is deceased but certainly he is

beyond

I AM inclined to believe that THIS was DANIEL s/o EDWARD even

tho he would have been only 16 in 1779. I can’t find

anything to prove that it was BUT I can’t find anything to

dispute it, either. He WAS in the right location and he wasn’t

WITH his father in June 1779 when Edward WENT to the

improvement to build his cabin and put the wedges in the

tree...being on military duty might explain WHY he wasn’t there

that day to help clear the land & build the cabin.

In 1795 Daniel Williams and wife Violet sell

land that Daniel Williams got from Edward William’s 400 acre pre-

emption (Clark County deed in picture folder). In 1787 Fayette

County Tithable tax list is Ambrose Coffee shown with an additional

tithable named Francis Crouch. This must be the Francis Crouch that

was married to Hannah Hatton and/or Jenny Sparks in Clark County,

which would make him born circa 1765. This would place him as the

right age to be Violet’s brother. According to what I have been

able to dig up online, Ambrose Coffee was born 1755 in Dublin,

Ireland. He came to America at the age of 12, and came to Fort

Boonesborough no later than 1777 and possibly by 1776. I have read

that he married after coming to Fort Boonesborough, but don’t have a

marriage record, so I don’t know if that is true. On Ancestry.com

Ambrose’s wife’s name is listed as Ailsey (might not have that

spelled correctly). Is it possible that Ailsey and Francis Crouch

are related to Violet, maybe even brother and sister? This might be

a wild stretch, and hope this is only used for research purposes,

because there really is only room for speculation without some more

evidence. For all you that have parents for Violet, does she have

listed a brother Francis or sister Ailsey? There could have been a

close connection somehow to Ambrose Coffee for Daniel Williams to

have sold part of his father’s pre-emption to Ambrose. Edward and

Daniel saw hard times gaining this land, so I don’t think they would

have parted with it lightly.

I have NO PAPER that SAYS SPECIFICALLY that J. V. & Jane Davis

Williams HAD a son named CALEB WILLIAMS. Perhaps there is a

descendant (unknown to me) that does have proof and perhaps others

do KNOW that Caleb was the first child born to J. V. & Jane

Davis Williams. While I am an “old” (years & experience)

researcher, I am somewhat new to THIS family research. I do,

however, based on the censuses and reasonable assumption, claim

that they DID have a son named CALEB WILLIAMS.

 

In 1830 18-year-old Vardamin (sic) Williams b. 11 November 1811

Floyd County KY is enumerated in Morgan County KY with a wife

(m. 12 February 1829 Jane Davis in Morgan County KY) and a male

child under five. I believe this male child under five was

CALEB WILLIAMS b. ___April 1830.

 

I have NOT yet found the 1840 census for J.V. Williams

Household. I THOUGHT I had him in Morgan County (line-by-line)

but the page is ink-smudged and over-written in dark ink...I

can only read Williams...no first name but looks like initials

“___” “W.” ...really can’t tell...BUT two houses down from J.

V. Williams’ brother Caleb (m. Malinda Davis) Williams. I DON’T

think it’s J. V. & Jane Davis Williams because J. V. & Jane

had at least four more children between 1830 and 1840 (for a

total of five at THAT time) who should be on 1840 census. The

smudged household has a couple with one baby girl under 5.

 

The 1850 Breathitt County KY Jas. WILLIAMS household census

is well known...by COPES, BUFFINGTONS and some WILLIAMSES who

have researched (Jas.) Jeremiah Vardeman Williams. Household

#180 enumerates the Jas. (Jeremiah) V. Williams & (2) Mrs. Jane

McGuire Buffington combined family. The first person enumerated

is CALEB WILLIAMS age 20 and his wife NANCY (BUFFINGTON) age

15. It is written that Nancy Buffington was the d/o Abdale &

Jane McGuire Buffington. I have NO marriage record for Caleb &

Nancy Buffington Williams.

been way too young. NEVERTHELESS, he doesn’t show up anywhere

NOTES: The 1900 Williams census is a VERY difficult Household

to find/read. It doesn’t come up on the Index search...we found

them line-by-line. The enumerator wrote all over Caleb & Nancy

and then it smeared. It was a big help that we KNEW who

they were.

 

MORE NOTES: I don’t have a death record for Caleb or Nancy.

It would be very helpful if folks would keep in mind that

Jeremiah V. Williams who married Jane Davis AND Caleb Williams

who married Malinda Davis were BROTHERS...STB sons of Daniel &

Rebecca Violet Couch/Crouch Williams. Caleb Williams who married

Nancy Buffington was the s/o Jeremiah V. & Jane Davis

Williams. I have found some people have this really confused.

 

SO, the first child of Jeremiah V. & Jane Davis Williams was

CALEB WILLIAMS b. ___April 1830 m. c1850 NANCY BUFFINGTON b.

___August 1835. Caleb & Nancy had 9 children with these 5 known

from censuses: Jeremiah b. c1852; James H. b. c1859; John H. b.

c1861; Rebecca E(lsie) b. c1864; Samuel T. Wiley b. c1868.

 

Daniel Williams is supposed to have been born at the headwaters of the

Potomac River in Virginia or Pennsylvania, the son of Edward Williams and a

descendant of Roger Williams of Philadelphia. (Note: The Pennsylvania

Historical Society reports Roger Williams left no male descendants.) Some

records say Daniel and his father, Edward, probably with other members of the

family, came down the Ohio River to the Falls (G.S. says May 1775), then to

Harrodsburg; from there to Fort Boonesborough. Mr. McKee says the family

came directly to Ft. Boonesborough from the Watauga Settlements in North

Carolina on Boone’s second trip to Kentucky about 1779.

While living at Ft. Boonesborough, Daniel fought in the Battle of Blue Licks, “the last battle of the American Revolution”. The battle, on August 19, 1782, was between Kentucky frontiersman, including Daniel Boone, whose son Israel was killed in the battle, and a marauding band of Tory and Shawnee raiders led by the renegade Simon Girty. Daniel Williams and Violet Crouch were married by Squire Boone at Boonesborough six years later (1788).

In the early 1790s (one record say 1793) Daniel Williams, Thomas Ammons, and Andy Trimble organized Lulbegrud Church in Montgomery County, KY and named it for the nearby creek, which was itself named for the creek in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. Lulbegrud Creek is now the boundary between Clark and Powell Counties, Kentucky. The church is located on the Clark County side of the creek. The church is now gone and the site is unmarked.

Daniel’s father, Edward, was a Deacon in the Lulbegrud Church. Daniel Williams was appointed in 1794 as one of the three church messengers to the South Kentucky Association on Gilbert’s Creek; in 1799, he was named Pastor of Lulbegrud Church.

Daniel Williams appeared on the Montgomery County, Kentucky tax list, Aug 22, 1800 as did his father, Edward. Daniel and Violet moved to the Prestonsburg District (per Wardie Craft), then to Smith Creek in eastern Morgan County where his house still exists on Route 437.

Daniel organized the South Fork Baptist Church (Burning Springs Association) in Malone, Morgan County, in 1807 or 1808, and is said to have established 10 other churches in eastern Kentucky. In later years, he and Violet moved to Caney, Morgan County, where they built a house of cannel coal, which Daniel considered to be a beautiful stone. The house, however, later burned. The history of Menifee County says that only the chimney was made of cannel coal and when Daniel lit the first fire in the fireplace, the black stones caught fire and burned the house down.

Daniel continued as minister at Caney, performing more than 100 marriages in

the area. He often preached beneath a tall oak tree on the side of the

mountain overlooking Caney Valley. The tree still stands. It is related

that on preaching day, Daniel would stand on the hillside near the tree and

blow a horn whose blasts could be heard up and down the valley. It was at

this spot that he and Violet were buried. Daniel’s grave marker,

supplemented in 1955 by a DAR marker is inscribed “Elder Daniel Williams,

Died July 31, 1820, age 57 y. 4 mo. The Dec’d imigrated to Ky, May 1775 and

served as pastor of various churches of United Baptist during his life.”

 

 

(REBECCA) VIOLET COUCH WILLIAMS headstone records her given name

as VILOT (sic [Violet]). Her surname WAS Couch. LSH

 

“Lulbegrud Church was located on the banks of Lulbegrud Creek in

Montgomery County, Kentucky...the church was constituted on the

third Saturday in March, 1793....Elders Thomas Ammon and Andrew

Tribble, of South Kentucky Association assisted in the

constituation of this church.

 

In March, 1794, John Summers and John Allen were chosen elders.

At the same meeting Martin Dewitt and EDWARD WILLIAMS were elected

deacons. And the following August they elected Elijah Summers,

DANIEL WILLIAMS, John Treadway and Anthony Griffin as messengers

to the South Kentucky Association, which was to meet at

Gilbert’s Creek.

The church had no regular pastor for seveal years after their

constitution, but presumably they had some preaching...the records

do not state by whom. TRADITION (emphasis supplied...LSH) says

that DANIEL WILLIAMS preached for them during this period. In

July 1799 we find the first record of the church having extended

a call to a preacher, when ELDER DANIEL WILLIAMS was tendered

the pastorate. From the following entry in the church book, in

June 1800, ‘the church proposed to call on BROTHER WILLIAMS to

know the cause why he nelected to attend this church.’ It

would seem that he never accepted the call. It appears that their

first pastor was that eminent man of God, Moses Bledso, who

preached for them for several years.” End quote. SOURCE:

Notes for MARY EMILY POLLY WILLIAMS:

I know this message was posted awhile ago. Mary Polly Williams and Joseph Davis are my 3 g grandparents. Three of their daughters married into my Estep lineage. Edith (Eda, Edy) Davis was named after her Aunt Edy Williams Allen. Edith Davis married William W Estep, my gg grandfather. Her sisters, Violet “Biba” Davis m Henry P Estep and Mary Emily Davis married Martin Van Buren Estep.

William W, Henry P & Martin Van Buren Estep were brothers.

 

It is so nice to read that someone realizes the Mary Polly Williams that was the daughter of Elder Daniel Williams married Joseph Davis.

CALEB  C.  WILLIAMS  b. 1782  probably   in the “cabbon”  at

1.      ·        Boonesborough  s/o EDWARD  & JEMIMAH PROB CARTER WILLIAMS  to whom

2.      ·        EDWARD sold the  “home plantation”  in Montgomery County KY  in 1803.

3.      ·        His middle  name is CALLOWAY (AKA CALLAWAY)  but I usually don’t spell

4.      ·        it out because I have this  “mind block” thing about which  spelling

5.      ·        CLAIRE uses and I  don’t want her  to think  I’m  just being

6.      ·        careless...<BigGrin>...CALEB CALLOWAY (AKA CALLAWAY)  was the son of

7.      ·        COL Richard CALLOWAY,  the man  about whom it has been  said  “if

DANIEL

8.      ·        BOONE  hadn’t had such good story writers  the real story would have

9.      ·        been told about  Kentucky by the telling of the life of COL

CALLOWAY.”

10.  ·        COL  Calloway  was killed by the Indians.

>

11.  ·        I  can’t  yet get an inkling  of WHY EDWARD & NICHOLAS were so close

12.  ·        EXCEPT  for the fact  that EDWARD & SUSANNAH  chose JOHN  ANDERSON for

13.  ·        their guardian.  I KNOW there’s an  answer RIGHT THERE  but there’s

14.  ·        nothing I can find or figure right now...I  don’t know WHICH John

15.  ·        Anderson...the one JOHN  ANDERSON we know was associated with

NICHOLAS,

16.  ·        Jr.  b. c1730  was the one  married to ELIZABETH RIXEY...he  had two

17.  ·        children and died fairly  young...but  he  WAS  alive in  1754.  

One of

18.  ·        JOHN  &  ELIZABETH’S  children  was PRESLEY ANDERSON  m. ELIZABETH

19.  ·        STEELE...remember PRESLY ANDERSON walked to Caintuck in  1779 with his

20.  ·        wife &  children including son JOHN (the one CALEB’S  descendants

21.  ·        claimed was the FATHER of EDWARD’S  wife JEMIMAH...but he wasn’t...he

22.  ·        was just a  little boy when EDWARD & JEMIMAH married).   

CLINKENBEARD

23.  ·        said Presley was a cousin of  NICHOLAS, Jr.  b. c1730.  I KNOW

there was

24.  ·        a NICHOLAS, Sr. and a NICHOLAS, Jr. in  PW  so  in  my speculation 

I

25.  ·        have the old man  NICHOLAS, Sr.  as father  to  NICHOLAS, Jr. b.  c1730

26.  ·        married to BARBARA...we still don’t know who BARBARA was...there was

27.  ·        also THOMAS,  JEMIMAH  and MARY  ANDERSON  in PW  at that time  along

28.  ·        with NICHOLAS, Jr...I THINK part of this same

29.  ·        unresearched-unclaimed-by-anyone-else  family...associated someway with

30.  ·        the Chamblins  who were  also  KNOWN  to  the WILLIAMSES and

HARPERS in

31.  ·        Caintuck. There are just too few records on which to make even a

decent

32.  ·        speculation.  I’ve thought of EDWARD’S mother being an

ANDERSON...but I

33.  ·        also know that ANDERSONS weren’t in WESTMORELAND...they  WERE  in

34.  ·        STAFFORD.   I’ve also thought  maybe EDWARD’S mother remarried to an

35.  ·        ANDERSON  in  PW  when  WILLIAM died...I just don’t KNOW.  What I do

36.  ·        KNOW is when  the WILLIAMSES,  ANDERSONS, HARPERS  and SUMMERS  came

37.  ·        together  ON RECORD at Chopawamsic  some of them stayed together from

38.  ·        THEN unto  DEATH  and we STILL know little  SOLID about WHY  they were

39.  ·        so close.   You know I believe  that JEMIMAH CARTER m. EDWARD 

WILLIAMS

40.  ·        and  her sister  ELIZABETH CARTER  m. JOHN SUMMERS, Sr.  making

EDWARD

41.  ·        WILLIAMS &  JOHN SUMMERS, Sr.  brothers-in-law.  You know  I believe

42.  ·        that JOHN HARPER’S  wife  (1) SARAH SUMMERS was possibly the daughter of

43.  ·        JOHN  & ELIZABETH  CARTER SUMMERS, Sr.   We both know that family units

44.  ·        usually moved  from  place to place  together...we also know  that

45.  ·        there’s  an unidentified/unclaimed   JOHN ANDERSON,  JEMIMAH

ANDERSON

46.  ·        and  an  extra ALETHA ANDERSON  (not Nicholas, Jr.’s  daughter) claimed

47.  ·        as being at Boonesborough along with  NICHOLAS, Jr.  and  his 

cousin

48.  ·        PRESLEY  (as HOPE says, “Bragging rights on  Boonesborough families are

49.  ·        like GOLD...why has no one ever straightened out  the extra

ANDERSONS

50.  ·        claimed at Boonesborough?”  WELL,  early folks said EDWARD WILLIAMS

51.  ·        married  a second time  (after the claimed  MLE  died  or somebody

52.  ·        unknown  died  who was killed  by Indians after Susannah was born, year

53.  ·        unknown)  to THAT Jemimah Anderson at Boonesborough in  1780...and they

54.  ·        claimed   THAT  Aletha  as NICHOLAS & BARBARA’S  daughter...and 

THAT

55.  ·        JOHN...well, he was just an extra JOHN ANDERSON...).   MAYBE  that

56.  ·        Jemimah  Anderson was NICHOLAS ANDERSON, Jr.’s mother, the widow of

57.  ·        Nicholas, Sr? Or sister?  Maybe that John Anderson  was his brother?

58.  ·        Maybe  that Aletha was his sister?  Even the ANDERSONS  don’t know who

59.  ·        NICHOLAS, Jr. was...nor who BARBARA was.  I  DON’T  THINK that there was

60.  ·        a family connection between JEMIMAH CARTER  and the ANDERSONS

(unless

61.  ·        she MARRIED one)...I DO KNOW  that there was a connection between

EDWARD

62.  ·        WILLIAMS & the ANDERSONS.   I just don’t know  who  his guardian

JOHN

63.  ·        ANDERSON  was  or what, if any,  connection there was between  that

64.  ·        JOHN ANDERSON & NICHOLAS, Jr.   MAYBE  brothers?  I KNOW nothing...but

65.  ·        I’m thinking  it’s FAMILY...someway.  I  wish more folks on here

would

66.  ·        post  what THEY think...but I suspect some  of us are worried that

what

67.  ·        we  SPECULATE  on  here  will be picked up & spread all over  the

68.  ·        place...I’m beyond  worrying about it...it stiffles discussion.

69.  ·        I hope you feel better for your trip...doesn’t sound like much fun

Beverly McClain  were m. 27 Jan 1831  in Morgan County  KY.   They  took

in  Elizabeth  Day  Kempleton’s daughter (Peter  & Frankey’s

granddaughter)   Sarah  A.  Kempleton.  While I  won’t  type  the

entire 1870  McClain  census  I  will  tell  you  they  had  added

Beverly, Jr.  age 9  on  their  1870  census;  SARAH KEMPLIN (sic

Sarah  A.’s  mother, Elizabeth Day Kempleton,  did not  show up in  the

1870 Morgan County  KY  census Index,  nor did  her  brother, Preston

Kempleton.  I  am  sure  it’s a matter  of HOW the  surname  was

spelled.

It  is  written  on  Memory  Hill  that  PRESTON  KEMPLETON  (s/o  John H. Kempleton & Elizabeth Day)  b. c1848  KY m.  SEBRA  HOLBROOK.

Notes for AMBROSE JONES WILLIAMS:

It gives the names of Peter Day, Tobias Cook, William Brown, William

Williams and John Williams for a marriage on May 15, 1856 between

Ambrose Williams and Sarah Williams. Sarah would have been 14 years

old when she married Ambrose. Since this record does list a William

Williams, I am assuming it’s her father, but don’t know that for

sure. If we had the marriage bond, we could nail this one down. I

am going on to another child of Thornton’s and work on them.

May 15, 1856       Ambrose Williams        Peter Day               William Williams

                   Sarah Williams          Tobias Cook             John Williams

Notes for DANIEL A WILLIAMS:

Maxine & Connie,

I apologize for jumping to the faulty conclusion that a

“brother-in-law” would HAVE to be a deceased husband’s

brother...while I was trying to go to sleep last night it

finally came to me that a deceased sister’s husband was a

“brother-in-law” as well...AND that appears, as you have

explained, Maxine, to be the situation here with JOSEPH DAVIS

WILLIAMS & SYLVINIA “Vinie” PRATER and DANIEL ALLEN WILLIAMS &

(1)  SARAH (AKA Cary) ANN PRATER.

 

SO, Joseph Davis WILLIAMS was the s/o Jas. Jeremiah Vardeman

WILLIAMS & Jane DAVIS. Joseph Davis Williams b. 06 June 1840

Morgan County KY m. 07 May 1866 Morgan County KY to Sylvinia

PRATER b. 14 October 1849 Morgan County KY. Sylvinia PRATER

was the d/o John (AKA James as I typed earlier) Wesley PRATER

& Lucinda LYKINS.

Daniel A(llen) WILLIAMS b. ___January 1844 Morgan County KY was the s/o Caleb WILLIAMS & Malinda (AKA Belinda) DAVIS. THIS Caleb WILLIAMS was the s/o Elder Daniel WILLIAMS...this Caleb was also the brother of Jas. J. V. WILLIAMS. (Daniel A(llen) Williams was the nephew of Jas. J. V. Williams.) Daniel A(llen) WILLIAMS m. c1866 (may be 30 August 1866...I didn’t have time to VERIFY this today) Morgan County KY to (1) Sarah (AKA Cary) Ann PRATER d/o John (AKA James) Wesley PRATER & Lucinda LYKINS.  NOTES: Sarah (AKA Cary) Ann Prater b. 24 April 1848 Morgan County KY was the first child listed for John Wesley & Lucinda Lykins PRATER...Sylvinia Prater b. 14 October 1849 was the second.

I won’t type all the censuses...just the 1880 where DANIEL A.

WILLIAMS (1) wife IS enumerated as SARAH ANN WILLIAMS.

1880 Morgan County KY US Census

Grassy - Precinct #3

HH222

WILLIAMS, Daniel A. Head 35 M Farmer KY KY KY (all birth

states below are KY).

WILLIAMS, Sarah A. (Prater) Wife 32 F.

WILLIAMS, James W (esley) Son 13 M At School.

WILLIAMS, Silvester (sic [Sylvester]) Son 10 M At School.

WILLIAMS, Cynthia (Ann) Dau 8 F.

WILLIAMS, Laura A. Dau 5 F.

WILLIAMS, Powell M(onroe). Son 3 M.

 

NOTES: I don’t know why Sarah A. PRATER was AKA “Cary” A.

Prater.

The name SARAH A. is clearly written on the 1880 census.

Sarah Ann Prater was b. 24 April 1848.

Sarah Ann (Prater) Williams d. 21 November 1894. She left her husband Daniel A(llen) Williams.

Joseph Davis Williams d. 05 August 1895. He left his wife Sylvinia (Prater) Williams.

Widow Sylvinia Prater Williams m. 19 January 1896 (2) her brother-in-law Widower Daniel A(llen) Williams.

Widower Daniel A(llen) Williams m. 19 January 1896 (2) his sister-in-law Mrs. Sylvinia Prater Williams.

NOTES: Sarah (AKA Cary) Ann & Sylvinia Prater had a younger sister named Prudence Prater...Prudence Prater m. 27 December 1878 D. M.  DeBoard (AKA Deboard)...a witness to the 1896 marriage of Daniel & Sylvinia. The other witness J. W. Williams may have been the s/o Daniel & Sarah Ann Prater Williams.

I don’t have an exact death date (no time today) for Daniel A(llen) Williams but AFT 1910.

I have for Sylvinia... from the Kentucky Deaths Database:

WILLIAMS, SYLVINIA Age: 88. Death Place: Morgan. Residence: West

Liberty. Death Date: 01-13-1938. Vol. 005 (1938). Certificate:

02362.

NOTES: I know SYLVINIA PRATER WILLIAMS’ given name is spelled “Sylvania” in several places but I’m going to use SYLVINIA from Maxine, the census and THIS death record. She was called “Vinie” or “Vinnie.”

OK, I THINK I’ve got myself untangled now...this isn’t my direct line EITHER (remember CLARINDA JANE WILLIAMS m. GEORGE W.

STROHM, Sr.) but once Sylvinia Prater w/o Joseph Davis Williams

(Clarinda’s brother) came into the Jas. Jeremiah Vardeman

WILLIAMS’ family she became FAMILY...I just wanted to follow her

until the end. Thanks for all the help, Maxine...and Connie,

thanks for the transcribed marriage records online. Lee
