"Buyers at the sale of the estate of John Arnold of Abbeville were listed as the following: Zachariah Arnold, Harriet P. Arnold, Mary Watson, John Marshall, John Cochran, Milly Watson, and others." (src. Estate sale for John Arnold, 1828)

NOTE: Zachariah is listed in estate sale for John Arnold in 1828, the "Zachariah Arnold" is Zachariah W. Arnold of Abbeville Co., SC. "Harriet P. Arnold" is unknown. "Milly Watson" is Milly Arnold, the sister to William Pettus Arnold and daughter to John Arnold and Barbary Pettus of Louisa Co., VA. "John Cochran" is the husband to Nancy Lumsden Arnold, known daughter to James Arnold and Nancy Lumsden of Louisa Co., VA (who also moved to Abbeville).

"ARNOLD, (MINORS) Box 105, Pack 2581 - On 23 Oct. 1838 Zachariah W. Arnold, Timothy, F. G. Thomas bound unto Moses Taggart Ord. Abbeville District sum $500.00. Z.W. Arnold was gdn. of Martha Ann, John W. Arnold, minors" (src. "Abstracts of Old Ninety-Six and Abbeville District, Wills and Bonds")

NOTE: It is still unknown exactly who these minor Arnolds are but Zachariah did not travel to Mississippi with them. By 1845 when Zachariah is listed in the book "Migrations of South Carolinians on Natchez Trace", it is only his immediate family as traveling with him. It is told by Zachariah's descendants that the Arnold family came into Mississippi by way of Lawrenceville, Tennessee so it is possible that the minor children were left with other relatives in Tennessee.

- Had 5 slaves in 1800 Census.

- 1798, Last Will and Testament on file in Abbeville County. Married Susannah Pettus, daughter of William Pettus and Susannah Graves.

NOTE: Charles Davenport and John Davenport are the same as the Cumberland Co., VA Davenports in the 1760's. Charles, b. 1726 Spotsylvania Co. VA, and John were the sons of Richard Davenport (b. 1713 King William Co., VA), and grandson of Martin Davenport, Sr.'s first marriage (of the Pamunkey Davenports - New Kent Co., VA and Hanover Co., VA).

John Davenport married Susannah Pettus, daughter to William Pettus and Susannah Graves (of Hanover Co./Spotsylvania Co.). John Davenport died in Abbeville Co., SC in



1798. "The Pamunkey Davenports of Colonial Virginia," gives the wife of John Davenport, son of Richard of Albemarle, son of Martin of Hanover ( d. 1735), as Susannah Pettus. John's LW&T probated in Abbeville District, South Carolina, in 1798 identifies his wife as Susannah, and his children as Charles, Richard, Peggy, and Patsy. Two of the witnesses to the Will were John Arnold and John Pettus Arnold.

Susannah Pettus Davenport's sister, Barbary Pettus, married John Arnold in Louisa Co., Virginia in 1775. This John Arnold was son of William Arnold Sr. and Mary Davenport, eldest daughter to William Davenport of Spotsylvania County, Virginia.

Quoting from "The Davenport Chronicles", Dr. Davenport states: "In 1778-79, William Arnold, Sr., and his brother-in-law John Davenport went to Uwharrie Waters, Guilford County, North Carolina, to look at land in the same neighborhood where Augustine Davenport, another son of William, had settled in 1768-69. The Rowan-Guilford Line divided the neighborhood, with Augustine being on the Rowan side. Shortly after Arnold's and John's arrival in North Carolina, Randolph County was created from the south of Guilford, and took in the land of Arnold's and John's interest. Having decided to settle permanently in North Carolina, the Arnold returned to Virginia, and divested themselves of their property there."

Children of some of these Davenports also moved to Mississippi with my Arnold'. They are buried in cemeteries around Tippah and Prentiss Co., Mississippi.

SUMMARY: After looking over the data for this particular Arnold group from Virginia into South Carolina, it is the opinion of this writer that the Abbeville County Arnolds are all descended from Francis Arnold and Rachel Arnold of Virginia. This same group continued to migrate together across the nation, finally ending up in Texas by the 1900's.
