    Jeffries/Jeffers from the begining

    This is the Jeffries/Jeffers lines from the very begining.....I think it shows the start would have been Mehhrrin indian (Since the Mehhrrin tribe was the closest and also the Family followed Mehhrrin Migration patterns).

    JEFFERY FAMILY
    Members of the Jeffery family were


    i. Elizabeth, born say 1700, an Indian living in Northampton County, Virginia, on 12 January 1730/1 when she petitioned the court to order her former husband Thomas Fisherman, also an Indian, to return a mare and horse which were her property before their marriage [Orders 1729-32, 68; Mihalyka, Loose Papers I:237].
    ii. Thomas, born say 1710, an Indian sued on 14 July 1736 in Northampton County, Virginia, by William Satchell for a debt of 500 pounds of tobacco [Orders 1732-42, 224]. He was tithable in Northampton County in 1744 adjoining Joseph Jeffery [Bell, Northampton County Tithables, 357]. He was allowed 200 pounds of tobacco from the county levy on 2 November 1747 [Orders 1742-8].


    1 iii. Mary, born say 1710.



    1. Mary Jeffery, born say 1710, died before 9 March 1773 when Daniel Eshon was granted administration on her Northampton County estate [Minutes 1771-7, 192]. Her inventory totaled 177 pounds, and included 45 pounds cash on hand, butter, hog fat, good pewter, knives and forks, 10 hoes, 3 plows, 30 cattle, 18 pigs, 22 hogs, 2 sheep, 22 barrels of corn, 3 horses, 6 ducks, 3 geese, 4 turkeys, and potato seed. Solomon Jeffery, Rachel Jeffery, Mary Jeffery, Thomas Fisherman, Mary Fisherman, Thomas Pool, and Abraham Lang were buyers at the sale of the estate. The account of the sales totaled 196 pounds and included a cart and wheels, beds, furniture and linen wheels. About 23 pounds was distributed to seven unnamed children [W&I 25:167-9, 262-6]. Mary was probably farming land on the Gingaskin reservation. She may have been the mother of


    i. Stephen, born say 1729, an Indian sued by an Indian named John Daniel in a suit that was agreed in Northampton County on 11 March 1755 [Orders 1753-8, 199].
    ii. Solomon1, born say 1731, sued by William Teague on 15 December 1752 for trespass, assault and battery. He was called an Indian when he was sued for trespass, assault and battery by another Indian named John Daniel on 8 March 1757. George Powell sued him for a 1 pound, 7 shilling debt on 15 February 1758. On 14 July 1762 his wife Mary Jeffery ("Indian") took the oath of the peace against him and he was ordered to post 20 pounds security for his good behavior towards her [Orders 1751-3, 210; 1753-8, 400, 406, 482; Minutes 1761-5, 35]. He bought twenty-three items at the 8 February 1774 sale of Mary Jeffery's estate, including pigs and three harrow hoes.
    iii. Rachel, taxable on a horse in Northampton County from 1800 to 1802 [PPTL 1782-1823, frames 310, 331].

    v. Thomas2, bound to William Wood on 10 August 1773 [Minutes 1771-7, 151].



    They were the ancestors of


    i. Solomon2, born say 1767, married Tinsey Jacob, 16 January 1788 Northampton County bond, William Satchell, Jr., security. Tincy Jeffery was a "N"(egro) counted in Northampton County in 1813 [PPTL, 1782-1823, frame 539].

    iv. Sophia, married Thomas Carter, 7 December 1803 Northampton County bond, Peter Toyer security. Sophia Carter was a "Negro" living in Indian Town in 1813 [PPTL, 1782-1823, frame 531].
    v. Polly, married Nathan Drighouse (Driggers), 24 July 1810 Northampton County bond, Abraham Lang security.



    JEFFRIES FAMILY


    1. John1 Jeffries, born say 1670, was a "Negroe man" belonging to Captain Robert Randall on 5 July 1698 when Randall brought him before the Surry County court to declare him a free man [DW 5:157; Haun, Surry County Court Records, V:211]. He was probably the "John Negroe" for whom Captain Randall was taxable in 1698. He was taxable in his own household in Surry County from 1699 to 1703 near William Sweat [Magazine of Virginia Genealogy vol.24, no.2, 69, 75, 83; no.3, 69, 72; DW 5:289]. He and William Sweat produced accounts against the public for fifty pounds of tobacco in Surry County court on 21 October 1713 [Orders 1713-18, 14]. On 18 February 1722 he received a patent for 100 acres in Surry County on the south side of Blackwater Swamp and north side of Seacock Swamp and another 70 acres adjoining this land and Richard Fitzpatrick on 30 August 1743 [Patents 11:188; 21:508]. He was called John Jeffries, Sr., in his 3 November 1746 Albemarle Parish, Surry County, will, recorded 16 June 1752, which named his daughter Martha Jeffries as executrix and gave her his land on Seacock Swamp. He also mentioned his daughter Mary Powell, left a gun to his grandson John Jeffreys and left his clothes to his grandson Benjamin Tan. If his daughter Martha died without heirs, the land was to pass to his grandson John Jeffrys [DW&c 1738-54, 798]. His children were


    i. Martha.


    2 ii. John2, Jr., born say 1690.


    iii. Mary Powell (wife of Stephen Powell).
    iv. a daughter, wife of Anthony Tann whose son Benjamin Tann was called an orphan on 20 February 1744 when the Surry County court ordered the churchwardens of Albemarle Parish to bind him out [Orders 1744-49, 11, 22].



    2. John2 Jeffries, Jr., born say 1690, was called John Jeffries "the Younger" on 14 December 1712 when he purchased 128 acres on the south side of Blackwater Swamp bounded by the College Line in Surry County [DW&c 6:127]. (His wife?) Elizabeth Jeffers died 16 August 1745, and he died on 14 January 1745/6 (informant John Jeffers) [Albemarle Parish, Surry and Sussex County, Parish Register 1739-1778, 161]. By his 24 December 1745 Surry County will, proved 19 March 1745/6, he left all his land on the north east side of Clift and Tar Kiln Branches and the College Plantation to his son Joseph and named his other children: Richard, John, Lucy, and Rebecca. Joseph was to care for his brother Richard until he reached twenty-one years of age. He allowed his unnamed father the use of the land he was living on until his death when it was to pass to his son John [DW&c 1738-54, 523]. His children were


    3 i. Joseph, born say 1715.


    ii. Lucy.


    4 iii. John4, born say 1720.


    iv. Rebecca, born 13 March 1728/9, daughter of John Jeffries, Jr., and Eliza. his wife.
    v. Richard, born 26 August 1732, son of John Jeffries, Jr., and his wife Eliza.
    vi. __ne (Anne), born 6 May 1738, daughter of John Jeffries, Jr., and Eliza his wife [Albemarle Parish, Surry and Sussex County Parish Register 1739-1778, part 1, 7, 38].



    3. Joseph Jeffries, born say 1715, received land on the northeast side of Clift and Tar Kiln Branches as well as the "College Plantation" by his father's 19 March 1745/6 Surry County will. He was also to care for his younger brother Richard who was not yet twenty-one years old [DW&c 1738-54, 798]. He sold 100 acres on the south side of Blackwater Swamp in Surry County, Virginia, on 10 September 1747 [DB 5:124]. He returned an account of his father's estate to November 1747 Surry County court, but in March 1747/8 Thomas Alsobrook and John Anderson, his securities, complained to the court of his "ill conduct" and the court ordered him to deliver up the estate to them or provide the security bond himself [Orders 1744-9, 233-4]. He may have been the Joseph Jeffries who was sued in Brunswick County, Virginia court by Peter Cumbo in June 1749. The suit was dismissed when both parties failed to appear [Orders 1743-49, 523]. In July 1749 the Surry County court awarded him four pounds damages in his suit for trespass against James Winkles [Orders 1749-51, 597]. He was called "Joseph Jeffries a mullatto" in Southampton County when the court ordered the churchwardens of Nottoway Parish to bind out his children [Orders 1749-54, 388]. He was a taxable head of household with (his brother?) John Jeffries in Granville County, North Carolina, in the summary list for 1755 [CR 44.701.23], and he and his wife Ruth were "mulatto" taxables in the Cross Road District of Granville County in James Paine's list in Robert Collier's household in 1761 and in Thomas Hawtorn's household in 1762 [CR 44.701]. He mortgaged his livestock and furniture in Bute County to Charles Johnson on 19 November 1764 [Wills & Inventories 3:12, by Kerr, Warren County Records, 2]. He and John Jeffreys were insolvent taxpayers in Bute County in 1769 [Miscellaneous Tax Records in N.C. Genealogy, 2431]. Joseph was taxable in Warren County on an assessment of 59 pounds in 1779 and taxable in Captain Colclough's district from 1781 to 1785: 610 pounds assessment in 1781, 83 pounds in 1782, taxable on 140 acres and poll tax in 1784, 2 polls in 1785, perhaps identical to Joseph Jefferson who was taxable on 196 acres and no polls in 1788 [1779 Assessments, p.2; Tax List 1781-1801, 17, 27, 63, 81, 97, 156; L.P. 64.1, p.19].

    4. John4 Jeffries, born say 1720, son of John2 Jeffries, received a gun by the 3 November 1746 Surry County will of his grandfather John1 Jeffries [D&W 1738-54, 798]. Sussex County was formed from the part of Surry County where the Jeffries lived. John sued William Bryan(t) in Sussex County court in April 1754, and he was sued by Howell Briggs and Arthur Richardson for a total of about 10 pounds currency in December 1754. He was not found by the sheriff so his estate (including nine cattle, a bed and furniture, a chest and gun and dishes) was attached and sold [Haun, Sussex County Records, 100, 114, 194]. On 12 February 1755 he sold 140 acres in Sussex County on the south side of Blackwater Swamp adjoining the College Line which was the land his grandfather John1 Jeffries patented, part of a "Survey made by John Jeffries Deceased" on 13 August 1743 [Sussex County DB A:84]. He was taxable in Granville County, North Carolina, in the household of his brother Joseph Jeffries in 1755, and he and his wife Mary were "mulatto" taxables in the Cross Road District of Granville County, North Carolina, in James Paine's list in 1761 and 1762 [CR 44.701]. This part of Granville County became Bute County in 1769, and he and Joseph Jeffreys were insolvent taxpayers in Bute County in 1769 [Miscellaneous Tax Records in N.C. Genealogy, 2431]. He was taxable on only his own poll in Bute County in 1771 [Tax List CR.015.70001, p.12 of pamphlet] and taxable in Warren County on an assessment of 20 pounds in Captain Shearing's District in 1782 [Tax List 1781-1801, 46]. Perhaps Joseph and John Jeffries were the ancestors of some of those members of the Jeffries family counted as "other free" and "free colored" in Orange and Caswell Counties, North Carolina:

    5 i. Jacob, born say 1758.


    ii. John6, born about 1759, listed as a volunteer Continental soldier from Bute County in 1779: born about 1759 in North Carolina, 5'6" tall, dark hair and dark eyes [NCGSJ XV:109].
    iii. Elias, born 1776-1794, head of an Orange County, North Carolina household of 4 "free colored" in 1820 [NC:406].



    Other Members of the Jeffries family in Virginia were


    i. Margaret, born say 1690, paid 3 shillings, 9 pence on 16 September 1719 by the Surry County estate of Charles Savidge for her attendance at his funeral. The December 1722 account of the Surry County estate of Samuel Thompson included a 17 shillings payment to her, a 9 shillings payment to William Sweat, and William Sweat's payment of his rent [Deeds, Wills 1715-30, 219, 456-7]. She and her daughter Margaret Jeffries, her husband William Sweat, and Francis Locus and his wife Hannah lost their right to 190 acres on the north side of the Meherrin River in Southampton County in a dispute with Arthur Taylor heard at the Council of Virginia on 8 November 1753. Taylor received a patent for this land bordering Turraroe Creek on 24 January 1756 [Hall, Executive Journals of the Council, V:448; Patents 32:667]. She was called Margaret Sweat in Southampton County on 12 June 1755 when the court ordered that she be exempt from paying levies [Orders 1754-9, 94].


    6 ii. John3, born say 1718.



    5. Jacob Jeffries, born say 1760, was taxable in Orange County in 1790 [NC:95] and head of an Orange County household of 9 "other free" in 1800 [NC:514]. He recorded a certificate in Orange County on 24 July 1791 that he was the "Mulatto Jacob" who received a discharge for twelve months service as a soldier in the Revolution [NCGSJ XI:115]. He married, second, Jane Moore, 5 October 1796 Orange County bond, Joshua Wittid bondsman. His 14 July 1818 Orange County will left his wife Jane his household furniture, farm animals, the crop on the plantation, a bounty ticket worth $3,000 (apparently for Revolutionary War service) and named her executrix; left a cow to his son Rivers Jeffries; and left a dollar each to the his first wife's children Reuben Jeffries, Mourning Jeffries, John Jeffries, Katty Ammons (Hammons) and Betsy Guy [North Carolina original will, D:543]. Jinncy was head of an Orange County, North Carolina household of 7 "free colored" in 1820 [NC:344]. Jacob was the father of


    i. Reuben, born say 1783, married Kissiah Hawly, 30 May 1808 Caswell County bond, Miles Scott bondsman. Reuben was head of an Orange County, North Carolina household of 2 "free colored" in 1820 [NC:354]. Miles Scott was head of an Orange County household of 3 "other free" in 1810 [NC:817].
    ii. Mourning2.
    iii. John, perhaps the John Jeffries who married Winfred Whitmore, 21 April 1800 Orange County bond, Charles Whitmore bondsman.
    iv. Catey, married Mark Hammond, 10 May 1802 Orange County bond, Richard Hargreave and John Reeves bondsmen. Mark was head of an Orange County household of 6 "free colored" in 1820 [NC:284].
    v. Elizabeth, born say 1786, married Vines Guy, 8 January 1805 Orange County bond, Jesse Blalock bondsman.
    vi. Rivers.



    6. John3 Jeffries, born say 1718, was called John Jefferson when he was granted 84 acres on Cattail Swamp in Brunswick County adjoining John Persons on 12 March 1739 [Patents 18:553-4]. He was called Jefferson in the early land records but called John Jeffres/ Jefferis when he voted in Brunswick County in June 1748 [DB 3:508, 510]. And he and his family were called Jeffries when they voted in Greensville County in 1792 and in the land records in the late 1790s and thereafter. On 26 May 1748 he purchased 228 acres in Brunswick County bounded by the north side of Cattail Creek from John Person of Isle of Wight County, heir to John Person of Surry County who was granted the land in 1726 [DB 3:447; Greensville DB 1:450]. He was among the freeholders of Brunswick County ordered to work on a road under Littleberry Robertson on 27 March 1759 [Orders 1757-9, 314]. His land on Cattail Creek was on the west side of Fountain Creek in the part of Brunswick County which became Greensville County in 1781. He was taxable in Meherrin Parish, Brunswick County, on 2 persons over the age of twenty-one and 1 person under the age of twenty-one in 1785 and free from personal tax in 1786 [Personal Property Tax List 1782-98, frames 135, 159]. He was called John Jeffries on 28 June 1787 when the Greensville County court discharged him from paying taxes (due to old age) starting from the year 1786 [Orders 1781-9, 332]. He was taxable in Meherrin Parish, Greensville County, from 1787 to 1796: taxable on (his son) Nathan Jeffries and 3 horses in 1789, taxable on a horse in 1796 [Personal Property Tax List 1782-1850, frames 43, 65, 84, 109, 138, 189, 202]. John and his wife Judy Jefferson made a deed of gift of 55 acres to their son Simon in 1796 and made deeds of sale to (their sons?) Andrew, Simon, Nathan, and John in Greensville County between 1789 and 1798. They sold 50 acres of land adjoining their land in Greensville County to Andrew Jeffers on 4 February 1789, sold 45 acres on Person's Branch adjoining William Robinson to John Jeffers, Junior, for 3 pounds on 25 April 1792, and sold 40 acres to Nathan Jeffries for 20 pounds on 23 January 1798. By the terms of the deed Nathan was not to take possession of the land until the death of John Jeffries. On 27 December 1798 John and his wife Judy Jeffries also sold two parcels of land adjoining theirs to Andrew Jeffries, one of 40 acres for 9 pounds and another of 84 acres for 50 pounds [DB 2:487, 498, 505-6, 520, 524]. He may have been the Jefferson who was paid as a witness on 24 August 1799 for William Lanier in the Greensville County suit of William Stewart [Orders 1790-9, 635]. John Jeffries' wife Judy was identified as Judy Lane by their great grandson Parker Jeffries (son of Sally Jeffries) in a Greene County, Ohio court suit in 1841 [Parker Jeffries v. Ankeny]. Judy was probably the granddaughter of Elizabeth Lane who confessed in Surry County, Virginia court on 7 January 1690/1 that she had two "Molato" children by "Nicholas Sessums his Negro Man" [Surry Orders 1682-91, 771, 777]. John's children were
    P: Newman, Teal, Petty, Jeffries/Jeffers, Dobbins,Collins,Little,Johnson,O'neal and Bryant, Lee,Jones, Gray, Echols,Cave, Moore, Flemming and Jordan, Brown,Brock,Bass, Payne

    M: Yarbrough,Taylor and Cherry,Drake,Turner,Jacobs,woods

    And of course I married into the Richardson Family.

His son Thomas appeared in Orange County, North Carolina court on 26 May 1837 to obtain a pension for his father's services in the Revolution.

    South Carolina:
    Members of the family in Richland District, South Carolina, were



    i. Berry, listed in the payroll of the 3rd South Carolina Regiment in March 1780 [M246, Revolutionary War Rolls, 1775-1783, www.footnote.com/image/967938 viewed on 2 January 2008]. He was counted as white in 1790, head of household of 2 males over 16, 1 under 16, and 3 females [SC:26] and head of household of 10 "other free" in 1810 [SC:176]. He was probably related to Mary and Sarah Jeffers who were residents of Richland District in 1806 when they petitioned the South Carolina legislature to be exempted from the tax on free Negro women [S.C. Archives series S.165015, item 01885].
    ii. Allen, listed in the payroll of the 3rd South Carolina Regiment in March 1780 [M246, Revolutionary War Rolls, 1775-1783, www.footnote.com/image/967938 viewed on 2 January 2008]. He was counted as white in 1790, head of a Richland District household of 1 male over 16 and 2 females [SC:26].

    Endnotes:
    1. The trustees of Zenia Township denied Parker Jeffries the right to vote because he was a "person of color." He sued them in court and provided depositions from witnesses who had been neighbors of the Jeffries family in Greensville County in order to prove that he was white and Indian. Sally Robinson deposed that Sally Jeffries "claimed to be of White and Indian and I never heard anything to the contrary." Henry Wyche deposed that he believed Andrew Jeffries was "of Indian and White" (blood). Susan Wooten deposed that she grew up near the family where they lived in Greensville County. (She was probably married to or a member of the mixed-race Wooten family who lived just across the state line in Northampton County, North Carolina). Parker lost his case in the local court but won his appeal to the supreme court of Ohio which ruled that: There have been, even in this state, since its organization, many persons of the precise breed of this plaintiff, I mean the offspring of whites and half-breed Indians, who have exercised political privileges and filled offices, and worthily discharged the duties of officers. One such is now a clerk of this court, and two are now members of this bar. In 1831 in the case of Polly Gray v. State of Ohio, 4 Ohio, 354, and in 1833, in the case of Williamson v. School Directors, etc., Wright, 178, it was held that, in the constitution, and the laws on this subject, there were enumerated three descriptions of persons--whites, blacks and mulattoes--upon the two last of whom disabilities rested; that the mulatto was the middle term between the extremes, or the offspring of white and black; that all nearer white than black, or of the grade between the mulattoes and the whites, were entitled to enjoy every political and social privilege of the white citizen [Edwin M. Stanton, Reporter, Reports of Cases Argued and Determined in the Supreme Court of Ohio (1873), XI:318-21].

    Does anyone have family information about the Lang family in NC who married into the Bethea family in early 1800's +/-.

    You also mentioned the Wooten family. I am also inline from the Putney and Wooten marriage near the mid-1800's. I'm not sure of her birth. The Putney's were from the VA area and she could be from the south VA or north NC area, just guessing.

    Smile Northampton, VA

    I saw this site while searching for Powell/Daniel ancestors.

    I descend from Josiah Daniel, Sr. who married, Novenber 12, 1787 in Campbell County, Va., Priscilla Trent.

    He was listed on the marriage record. Actually, the name was listed twice.
    Once as groom and a second time as bondsman /witness with a Thomas
    Daniel.
    Their grave stones indicate Josiah and Priscilla were born 1756 and 1765, respectively. They moved to NC. Priscilla's parents, Henry Trent and Sarah Powell had land deeds as far back as 1762 in Chesterfield County, VA.
    Henry was born 1719 in Manchester Parish, Henrico County, VA.
    I've spent the last four months researching different lines including Jones/Batte/Stratton/Mallory. I saw a John Daniel listed on your site as NA.
    I found records for daniel/lanier families from Barbados to VA and SC.
    Elizabeth Lanier married Thomas Daniel and had alot of children including Josiah/ John etc. I also saw census records for Josiah Sr and Jr in Mecklenburg 1800/1810.
    My time's running out so I will have to continue this another time.

    I just want to say I was looking fo my ggg-grandparents on my mother's father's father's side and found that Rachel Howard b.1778 NC married a Howard. Yesterday, I found a record about the Dunbar bridge that had residents of Randolph and davidson counties, NC write a petition to the county to fund it in 1831-32. Rachel married an unknown Howard. Her last child of 6 was Wilson Howard who married Mary Owen in 1844. I descend from his brother Phillip m. Sarah Dowell 1824, Rowan, NC. On the Dunbar documents is the name of a Wilson Howard. His son was born 1816. I think I found Rachel's husband (? )Wilson would be about 16 years old.

    Daniel

    I've been searching data on Daniels. I eliminated :
    Wm Daniel m. Sarah c. 1796
    Robert d. 1786 + margaret price d. 1720
    James ( of Albermarle) + Jane Hicks 1709-1760
    James Jr, Chesley, Josiah ( brothers) in DNA test. Also, younger siblings: Abraham,Leonard,John,and sister, Susannah ( Bedford).
    Josiah left a Book called Josiah's Book. He gave his age as 01-19-1743.
    The only Josiah Daniel I've found is Josiah Daniel b. 1756 VA?,
    who I already have.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Then, I have Siblings Joseph, Thomas, Aaron.
    Thomas D. + Eliz. Lanier (b. 1698-1752 PG VA to Tyrrell NC 1716).
    Children: Th, Wm, John, Robt.L., b.1712/18, Sarah, Josiah, Eliz, Mary, Ruth, Priscilla, Aaron, b. Tyrrell NC.
    Too early.

    There is a Thomas listed as b. 1740 Beaufort , Sc.
    The Daniels and Pettypools moved together from NC to SC and later some went back to NC.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    I'm leaning to Edgecombe Co., NC .
    LW&T of Wm daniel f/ Simon , widow rebecca sons: David, Daniel, Wright, Obedience ( son).

    Then there's what you emailed -NC-GA/Crazyhorse-Joseph D. b. 1726-1800
    m. Sarah Barnes. son: Josiah b. 1756- 1806/08. The only problem is a site claims Josiah D. and w. Priscilla trent died later and are buried in Daniel Cemetery in Davie Co., NC.
    I don't know if that's correct. Sarah's f. Nathan Barnes M. Sarah Pope ( mother Eliz. Powell ) f?.
    --------------------------
    Eliz Robbins (f. Obed. R. )m. 1. John Daniel , 2. Harmenson.
    -----------------------------

    Warwick co., Va. /James river
    Symon's orphan :
    Simon Daniel + Eliz Rogers b. Edgecombe, NC 1720

    Hi ! i just thought I'd mention that I saw Bethea /Langs in Dillion, Sc. It became Dillion Co. in 1910. Prior to that it was Marion co., SC. I saw photos of these men new State and Congressional reps from dillion. It may have been in a ref book on Southern Baptists. Bethea's mother , if i remember correctly, was a Mary Rouse.
    My maternal g-mother was a Rouse. I haven't been researching that family for a while. A John Rouse orphan of David RouseBertie Co., NC was placed under the tuition of Christopher Harrison ref: Lost tribes of NC 3-445.Two Rouse men -I think ? John and Thomas were transported by Dr. Thomas Relfe with alot of others from Va to NC
    sept. 1663. Good Luck!

    Magnolia -- it doesn't seem your family is all that centered on Jeffries. If it's okay with you, I'd like to put your posts into their own thread with a title that stresses your surnames.

    Smile From Magnolia to Linda

    Hi Linda,

    That's ok with me.

    What I found interesting when searching the Jones lines is that Lady Anne Jeffrey was the wife of Richard Jones ( Wales) and they were the parents of the Jones men who immigrated to VA: Richard , William, Peter, Frederick Cadwallader, etc. I also found that Rowland Jones, Rowland Jr and his son Orlando Jones are from a different line.

    I'm searching Wm Jones, the father of Martha Jones b. Charles City Co., Va., 1648 who married Francis Ledbetter who I descend from, directly.


    Thank you, I really need help with the Josiah Daniel, Sr. line whose daughter, Mary 'Polly' Daniel married Daniel Foster in 1818.
