13 Mar 1999 Freeman HI all! A few hours in my newly found resource library in Marietta, GA has turned up more info on James Freeman Sr. Here is his will and some notes on the other information that I have found. I now have this line back 7 generations!! Thanks to all of you on the FREEMAN and FAUQUIER COUNTY LISTS who have helped me out!! Mike Wennin "To my youngest daughter Sally, to have feather bed and household furniture with full benefits and profits of part of her Grandfather, George William’s estate, which was bequeathed to her Mother – this to descend at her Mother’s death. Wife, Margaret Freeman, to have 1/3 of estate during her life. Grandson, Gollop Freeman (alias Duncan) household goods. Sons Garrett and Nathaniel, personal estate and slaves. Daughter Mary Hackley (wife of James) to have 30 shillings –she has received her share. Daughter Elinor Silman (wife of Joseph) 10 pounds currency. Sons, William James, Garrett, Nathaniel Freeman; and daughter Elizabeth Fletcher (wife of John) to have money from sale of land. Executors- Wife, sons, William and James. Witnessed by Samuel Wharton, William Williams, James Routt." There is a more detailed copy of this will that I did not get a chance to copy....if anyone is interested in it, I will have it next week. Another document that I have yet to copy gives certain slaves to each of the children in 1782. James Sr. was first married to Mary Compton in 1765 and then to Margaret Williams on 26th of March 1782. Sally must have been the daughter of Margaret and the rest of the children were Mary’s. I also have the will of George Williams, father of Margaret if anyone is interested. The 1787 Tax list of Fauquier Co. shows James Sr. paying tax on 8 slaves (5 over 16), 8 horses and 13 cattle. James’ father was also James who died in 1763 in Prince William County, VA. His mother's name was Elizabeth. James must have been a tobacco farmer as there is legal documentation mentioning him and 1000 pounds of tobacco. Neighbors of James in the late 1780's were George Williams, Charles Duncan, William Settle and others. It is interesting to see how all these families intermarried during that time. randomc.com

13 Mar 1999 Harris and Williams I have a little bit of information on George HARRIS. He lived in the Northeast District of Fauquier from 1785 to 1798. His marriage bond is dated 6/16/1774 to "Catharon" HARRISS (note the double 's'), dau of Samuel HARRISS; bondsman was Thomas HARRIS.

11 Mar 1999 Freeman and Benear HI! I am new to this list and am searching for my FREEMAN ancestors I had a great break through today with my Fauquier Co. FREEMANS..... a BENEAR cousin sent info I have been searching forever for (well over a year anyway!) to push through my wall of Jarrett (Gerard) and Nancy Benear Freeman of Fauquier-Rappahannock- Lewis County. Jarrett (spelled this way in the 1850 and 1860 Census) was born 18 December 1797 in Fauquier Co. He married Nancy BENEAR daughter of Henry BENEAR on Sept 8, 1826. His wife is listed in the 1850 and 1860 Census as Ann V(possibly Virginia)???? He died May 27, 1876 probably in Lewis or Harrison County WV. His father was James Freeman Jr. who married Elizabeth SHARPE on June 15 1777 in Fauquier CO. OF course James' father was James Sr. I think I saw the will of James Sr. at the library I am researching in here in GA. I will be back there tomorrow to check that out! There is another marriage listed with James, that of William Freeman and Sallie SETTLE on June 15, 1777....James' brother??? Any of these folks familiar to anyone? I am having more luck in my research by connecting to cousins of my ancestors' spouses rather than direct connections! Happy Hunting! Mike Wennin nash@randomc.com
11 Mar 1999 Harris Does anyone have any info on the parents and/or children of George Harris who married Catherine Harris June 16, 1774? Did they have a daughter, Nancy, born Aug. 6, 1796? Supposedly, Nancy was a daughter of a George Harris of Fauquier Co. If it isn't "this " George, what George might it have been? Thanks very much. Mary G. in NJ Cghusr@aol.com

10 Mar 1999 Mitchell While we`re talking of Germana maybe someone can tell me if the surname MITCHELL could be German. My family said that Lavenia MITCHELL, dau of James H. MITCHELL, was of German ancestry but maybe it was on her mother`s side of the family. I think her grandfather was one Caleb MITCHELL (or he could have been an uncle} Has anyone run across the name Caleb MITCHELL in any probate records in Fauquier Co. about 1800? I find him as a bondsman twice and that is all. TIA Sue in Dixie DRAKE35@aol.com
10 Mar 1999 Glendening Thanks to everyone for answering my replay for research help. It is much appreciated. Several of you asked who I am working on. His name is John Glendenning. He paid taxes in Fauquier from 1782 to 1799.He is listed in Fauquier Families as Manor of Leeds for 1796. I have been unable to prove or disprove who his father was. The only thing I can say for certain is that he was born before 1761. In 1794,he had a wife named Margaret. In King George Co. there is a family of Glendenning's,who owned land along the Rappahannock. One of them is a John, who is son of James. I do not know for sure if he is the same one or not. He had a wife named Margaret in 1774 when he sold land on Muddy Creek, inherited from his father James. This is where I got the signature from. I am sure it is his signature as the name is spelled correctly.The people who kept records seemed to spell the name all kinds of different ways.It seems only the family knew the right spelling of this unusual name. If I am mistaken about this microfilm of King George from the Library of Virginia not being a copy of the originial, please let me know. The deed itself is mostly unreadable but I got a good copy of his signature. I am sure my John of Fauquier is somehow of the King George Glendenning's . One of the reasons being there is George Glendenning who sold land in King George 1789,having a wife Rossanah, stateing he is residing in Fauquier Co.This George's daughter later came to Taylor Co. WV with my family. There are other reasons also. But I also have many unaswered questions about who some of the Glendenning's living in Fauquier Co. were. Such as the George who married Milly Duncan in 1786. Was he the same George who in 1789 had wife Rossanah Bower?There is only one George in the taxes for Fauquer, Who was the James who married Sally Hooper in 1794? My John had a boy named James Glendenning bound to him in 1798,who was he? It would seem to me my only answer is with the signatures. If anyone has another idea,let me know as I can see no other way to prove or disprove if he is the same John of King George Co. Joy rockytop@msys.net

9 Mar 1999 In the book Fauquier Families, the author lists several people as listed for Manor of Leeds. Does anyone know where the author got his information from? If so can the information still be obtained? I would also like to know about the original marriage bonds for Fauquier County. I am looking for the signature of the bondsman. Did the bondsman have to sign the bond or only put up the money? Are the originals still available? If they are,where would I write to get a copy? Would the microfilm of Fauquier Marriages from the Library of Virginia have the signatures on it? I am trying to locate a copy of my ancestor's signature to compare with one I have on a deed from King George. I think this is the only way I have left to determine if they are the same person. any help appreciated. Joy rockytop@msys.net
9 Mar 1999 Jim, thanks for writing. I've enjoyed your WebSite and think you and others do a very good job - very helpful! Thank you. This is DANIEL MARR est. DOB c1760, prob. VA. He was my doubled 4th Gr-grfather, and proven to be very elusive as seems to have NOT left much of a paper trail - until he shows up in East Tn. (Cocke) 1810 with a land grant. At least, I believe that is he. Then he left many children and heirs (have almost complete records here) in area of Saline, Lafayette, Johnson cnts. MO. Many of these heirs proven to have been b. in E_Tn. I have been assured by authors of two different books on the MARRs of Pa. and Me. that he is NOT from either of those two places - and evidence seems to point to only Virginia as his POB - hence, a descendant of this JOHN MARR of Stafford Co. I have the article by M. W. Hiden from Tyler's Quarterly and also the one on the Bradford and Hardin families by same person, which I am using for basic lines. There were many of those people who also settled in the same area of MO, incl. my KENTONs who intermarried with desc. of this Daniel MARR. Seems they all might have migrated together, some going to KY and others to E_Tn. Do you have any ideas about the ancestry (from John of Stafford?) of this DANIEL MARR? I thought he might have been the "orphan" who was granted the 50 acres of land (S.L.O. Land Bounty Cert. F & I Wars #960) because of the death of father, a John Marr (3) in that time period; but that was issued in 1780, and seemed rather late for wars ending in abt. 1763? Thanks for your time and any information you might have regarding when these Land Bounty Certificates were authorized for the F & I Wars, or thoughts about possible ancestry of this Daniel Marr of mine. Best Wishes, Dolores J. Davis djdavis@psnw.comdjdavis@psnw.com

4 Mar 1999 Moab Freeman was born in 1794 in either Culpeper or Fauquier Counties, Virginia and later went to Madison County, Kentucky where he married China Bentley on 16 December, 1817. There were several other Freemans in Madison County,some of whom I am almost sure were from Fauquier. His marriage bond included the name Nathaniel Freeman, whom I believe was either his brother or uncle. I believe he was the Moab Freeman who signed a quitclaim deed in Fauquier County for property that had belonged to his late father, James Freeman Jr. I have never found another Moab, and ours is the only Freeman family that carried the given name "Moab" through generations.I have never found a direct connection between Kentucky and Virginia for him, however. Any suggestions? PetieL8613@aol.com

27 Feb 1999 Jeffries I am trying to piece together informationon on my Jeffries heritage. My Grandfather, Harold Owen Jeffries was born around 1906 in and around the town of Marshall or The Plains. The 1910 Census (was wondering if this census occured in this region in 1909?) indicated a Harold O Jeffries in Marshall District. His father was listed as John A. Jeffries , his mother's name is difficult to read looks like Jeu(mie) or perhaps Jennie M.? I am interested in finding out more about this Jeffries line to determine if John is my G Grandfather. Also curious about John's wife's maiden name. My mother knew here Grandmother as Grandma Jeffries (d. around 1944) and she never met her grandfather. Harold's siblings were Juliet, Norman, Lilian, Edna, Elizabeth, James. My Mother tells me there was also a Constance, Fannie, and Albert who were younger than Harold. My Mother believes that Constance married a Werts or Virt, she had two sons who were named Milton and John. They were involved with the breaking of horses and reside somewhere in this area today. Edna had a daughter named Hazel. Some of my grandfather Harold's siblings died in their teens from some type of muscle contracting disease (according to my mother). Harold Owen often told us grandkids that he was related to James J. Jeffries (Heavy Weight Champion of the World 1899-1905), and I believe he did some boxing. His marriage Cert. indicates he was a resident of The Plains in 1930. Harold married Stella Louise Belcher in 1930. His cousin Jack Jeffries married an older Belcher sister named Clara earlier. Jack and Clara had 4 children...Bobby, Peggy, Dorthy and James. harold and Stella had 3 children Harold O. Jr, Gayle and Spencer Lee. Gayle is my mother. Any help or leads would be appreciated, I have little to go on even after visiting The Plains and Marshall. Art Colebayzone@illuminet.net

22 Feb 1999 Wilbourn & Sinclair Edward Wilbourn lived in Fauquier from 1759 to around 1768. His land was in the part of Fauquier taken from Prince William County, VA, and he is in Prince William Co., VA court records from 1753. He was married twice; the name of his first wife, who seems to have died in Fauquier ca. l764, is unknown. Children by this marriage were Thomas, John, Zachariah, Lewis, Lydia, and Susanna. Edward's second wife was Mary St. Clair (Sinclair), daughter of Alexander St. Clair of Stafford and Prince William. Edward and Mary's children were Richard, Edward (our line), Temperance, and Jane. Edward and Mary seem to have married around 1765, probably in Fauquier, Prince William, or Stafford. No record of the marriage has been found. Edward Wilbourn's land in Prince William/Fauquier adjoined that of Francis and Margaret Tennell. Margaret was Mary St. Clair's sister. Edward seems to have had financial difficulties in the 1760s and is in several court records for debt; generally the awards were for a few pounds. He mortgaged his land in 1764, I believe, and lost it to the mortgage company. The family then left Fauquier County. He and Mary did retain the acreage in Fauquier Co. which was gifted her by her father, Alexander St. Clair, and their son, Richard Wilbourn returned many years later to Fauquier and sold this land for Edward and Mary in 1795. In 1768, following the loss of his land, Edward and Mary and the children moved to the Nap of Reed's District, Granville Co., NC, where he bought some land from John Hampton, took the oath of allegiance, and was a corporal in the militia. In Granville, his name appears in court records with Sherwood and Robert Harris. There was also a Thomas Wilbourn in Granville at this time, with wife Temperance, who may have been a Harris by birth. In 1783, Edward and Mary moved to the Mitchell River area of Surry Co., NC. Edward's will is there in 1806, naming all of his children. Mary seems to have stayed on with son Richard and died in Surry sometime after 1820. I would love to learn the names of Edward's parents and learn why he settled in Prince William ca. 1754 and where he lived before. I have never seen a record of any other Wilbourn in Fauquier records, but I haven't seen many of the records! There is a Duke Wilbourn in 1754 in Prince William court records for fighting with a man named Hoard (and I believe there was a Hoard on land adjoining that of Edward Wilbourn and Francis Tennell); the case was dismissed, and I have seen no further reference to this Duke Wilbourn. Can anyone shed more light on Edward Wilbourn, perhaps born ca. 1727-1728? All help gratefully appreciated. Thank you. Pansylea Howard Willburn willburn@earthlink.net

15 Feb 1999 Freeman and Bentley Moab Freeman was born in 1794 in either Fauquier or Culpepper countiesVirginia,Collins' History of Kentucky says Culpepper, but the only Moab I have ever found is the son of James Freeman Jr. of Fauquier. He signed the quitclaim deed for the sale of James Freeman's farm in Fauquier in 1825."Our" Moab married China Bentley in Madison County Kentucky in 1817 as his first wife. I have found a Moab in Madison County Kentucky listed as a purchaser at a farm sale with other Freemans who appear to be originally from Fauquier. A Nathaniel Freeman signed his marriage bond;he could be either his brother or his uncle. However, I have never been able to prove he is the right Moab, though he's the only one I've found and ours seems to be the only family that has carried the name "Moab" through generations. I've adopted him as grandpa although I know I could look mighty foolish some day. Any suggestions,anyone? PetieL8613@aol.com

8 Feb 1999 Lawler & Wyne HI am decended from the LAWLER/WYNE line by adoption. I have learned tons about my birthfamily over the past 5 years and have always kept an eye out for the surname WYNE because it is rather unusal. Last summer, a cousin on this side got interested and has spent alot of time and effort researching the WYNE line. I spoke with him over the weekend and he asked me to see what else I could learn via internet, as he does not have computer access. Any more info on Edward WYNE? He seems to be the first ancestor anyone can connect to our lines. I believe he may have had a brother named William WYNE who fought in the war of 1812, and signed a land patent for 160 acres in Hancock Co., IL on 8-5-1818. Our Edward had a son named William b. abt 1798 (our direct ancestor) but he appears to be too young to have fought in 1812 and received a land patent. The family was in Shelby Co., KY prior to Jefferson Co., IN and this William married Rebecca LAWLER on 22 Jan 1825 in Shelby Co., KY. Do you show any more about this Rebecca? It appears that the WYNE and LAWLER families were connected for a couple of generations through marriage and moving. Any thoughts? Our line decends from William WYNE & Rebecca LAWLER's son Lazarus b. 1828 in IN and married to Mary Ann LOWE on 7 Feb 1850 in Jefferson Co., IN. Another cousin has posted this info on his web site - http://member.iquest.net/~drodeman/ - you can see the decendents of Edward WYNE/Mary Anne LAWLER here. Look forward to hearing from you again! Thanks, Dev Cook Monument,CO jrdgcook@earthlink.net

Aunt Florie told me that Anna Lucabaugh was born in Baltimore, MD 3 Jun 1882. The couple did raise their children in the Baltimore area.
