NOTE - if a reference cites a deed or court order book and does not state a county, it is Lunenburg County.

*C - Cruse, Patrick

1719 - inventory

Richmond Co, VA. The whole estate was worth 2 shillings and 6 pence. I suspect this was the father or grandfather of Richard Crews because I think the Crews were from Richmond Co, based on Richard Crews' close association with Catherine Journey, because of Catherine's association with Samuel Baker of Richmond Co and Lunenburg Co, and because of the presence of a cluster of Richmond Co people very close to Richard Crews on the 1748 Lunenburg Co tithable list, and because Patrick appears to be the only Crews/Cruse in Richmond Co in the early 1700s. Also note that Peter is an anglicized version of Patrick, which might explain the otherwise rarely seen name of name Peter Crews, among the Lunenburg Co Crews. Ref: Richmond Co Will Book 4 p. 102.

**Caa - Crews, Peter

-

Note that I am not absolutely sure Peter is son of Richard because of the 1st tax list he appears on. Other than that, he seems to be a son, because of Richard being his witness and Peter living in the Dry Creek neighborhood.

I MAY have stumbled across an obscure record giving Peter Crews' father's name as James. The record is Peter's 1795 personal property tax list entry in Halifax County, VA. It says Peter Crews & son James. But, the ampersand is crossed out, so what Peter's entry actually says, is 'Peter son James'. And only 1 white male tithable is listed. Also, if you read through the rest of the tax list, there are other instances where the tax man referred to someone as being the son of so and so, phrased in just that way. I've never been convinced that Peter was the son of Richard.

Also, in the Halifax personal property tax lists, the people that are found in close proximity to Peter with the greatest frequency, are: Francis Moore Petty (3 instances) and John Wimbish (2 instances).
Francis Moore Petty was christened in North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co, June 27, 1728, son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Ref = IGI). Thomas Petty was b. Richmond Co, 1680s, to Spots. Co VA ca. 1734, d. Orange Co, VA 1750; wife was Catherine Garton. (Ref = Gay Edens Carrigan, gaedcar@gulftel.com).
John Wimbish was b. ca 1731, son of James Wimbish and Sarah Hunt (Ref = IGI). James died, testate, in Prince Edward Co, and is found before that in Amelia Co (ref - various McCannaughey books).
From which I question if the Crews were in Orange/Spots.

**Caa - Crews, Peter

1760 - witness

Deed Book 6, p. 225. Oct 9, 1760. Jared McConnico of Cumberland Parish in Lunenburg Co sells to James Hamlett (Hamblett) of St. Patrick's Parish in Prince Edward County, for 120 lbs, 400 acres in Cumberland Parish, bounded by Jacobus Christopher. The land was patented to William McConnico on Jan 10, 1748. Witnesses were Joseph Minor, Joseph Billups, Peter (+ his mark) Crue, Peter (X his mark) Connico, Keziah, the wife of Jarred McConnico, relinquished dower.
(Peter Crue is a witness only at the conclusion of the body of the deed, and Peter Connico is a witness only in the memorandum of livery and seizin).

This deed, in conjunction with Peter Crews' absence from any and all Lunenburg records prior to 1764, and that the grantee in this deed was from Prince Edward Co, and the grantee lived very close to Peter and Richard Crews and had a close relationship with the Lunenburg Owens, all suggests that Peter Crews may have been living in Prince Edward Co in 1760. Need to look at Pr Edw OBs and St. Patrick's Parish records +++
Hamlett appears to be from Henrico-Goochland, judging from his earliest deeds in Amelia County.

Sure son of Richard, no question. Proof: Richard and Ann deeded their land to him, and lived with him. Ref: letter of Ann Crews dated Jan 18, 1996.

He seems to have had 10 kids, as follows: Josiah Jr (decd by Nov 1825), William (of Halifax Co), John, Elizabeth Crews (m Wm Crews), Nancy (m __ George, decd by Nov 1825) + 5 more.
2 more could be: Polley Callaway, Sarah Crews (um by Feb 1824)

I am guessing that this is Josiah, son of Richard, and Richard Jr, son of Richard, although there is nothing to say this isn't Richard son of Josiah. If this is Richard, son of Josiah, then there were very young parents - say, fathers at age 20, and Josiah would have been born ca 1735 but was not in the early Lun. tax lists, therefore would have been living elsewhere. Really don't have the data to resolve this question yet.

This is, supposedly, John Sadler, according to Ann. According to George Crews, whose reference was Ancestral File, it looks like, this person married Peggy Thompson, the daughter of George Thompson.
According to Ann Crews (Feb 20, 1996 letter), John was Erma's ancestor, and she called him Sadler, the reason why, unknown to Ann. Yes, his wife was Peggy, as per Hal. DB 14 p. 361, 1790. And in 1822, John Crews appointed John Thompson his attorney to recover any interest Crews had in the estate of George Thompson, decd, of GA, in right of his wife, Peggy (Hal DB 31, p. 29). He is the John Crews who left a will in Halifax in 1849; in the 1840 census he was age 80-90.

**Cad - Crews, Richard Jr

-

I maybe should assign Richard Jr as a son of Richard Sr because:
1. Evidently there is only 1 Josiah in the Lun. tax lists. (Unless we say that the Josiah who, in 1776, is called a Gent Processioner, is a different person).
a) He seems to be the child that takes care of the rest of the family. He is to provide for Richard and wife, and the same year, Richard Jr shows up with him. So, perhaps he was also taking care of a young Richard Jr.
b) a Jeter shows up with him, and Josiah married a Jeter. The Josiah who married a Jeter had a father-in-law about the same age as Richard Sr.
2. Josiah, if a son of Richard **Ca, could not be old enough to have a tithable son in 1772.
3. Josiah looks very much like a son of Richard, with the 1772 deed whereby he agrees to take care of Richard and wife for life.

Against this argument is that John was listed under Richard from 1772-1775. So why did Richard need to give Richard Jr to Josiah?

Note that before 1792, he is always referred to as Richard Jr. Another reason to assign him as s/o Richard. And a way to separate him from Richard of Charlotte.

Rocky Branch seems to by near Dry Creek because of the following deeds:

1795-1797 - Fayette Co, KY tax lists

Listed with 30 acres on Hickman, 1 white male over 21, 1 white male 16-21. The WM 16-21 was therefore born 1776-1779.
Also on the 1795 tax list are Jno Cruze with 25 acres and 0 males 16-21, and Redman Cruze with no land and 0 males 16-21.
From this, you might think John and Redman were brothers of Richard Jr. But - in Charlotte Co Deed Book 6 p. 149, Written Jun 21, 1791. Says that Mary Malone of Fayette Co, KY was a sister of George Redman, deceased, and Sarah was a half sister of George. Sarah married John Crews. Sarah and John were also of Fayette Co. But Charlotte Co Crews names I am assuming to be descents of John (**Cb). Perhaps an overly simplistic assumption, although there is no evidence that Redman was a child of Richard (**Ca).
Or, since Richard is clearly older than Redman and John, he could be their father.

-

Assigned as a younger son of Richard solely because he appears adjacent to him in the 1785 personal property tax list of Lunenburg Co.

According to Ann's reasoning, "William is a sure son, no question because in his will (1807, Halifax) he named his brother, Josiah". But Connie Sheets (ASWM99A@prodigy.net) raises the point that this William could be a son of Josiah, as per his grandfather, William Jeter's will, and that William, son of Josiah, also had a brother named Josiah.

I have in my notes that he married Nancy Owens (source?).

**Cbc - Crews, Joseph

-

I think there were 2 different Joseph Crews in Halifax - one in 1784 and 1787 and 1788 and 1792 who was probably a Quaker and associated with John Adams and did not live near the rest of the Crews - and the 2nd one was a son of John. But if this Joseph is related to the other Crews, then the other Crews may have been Quakers too. By reference to the 1787 tax list, there were but 3 Joseph Crews. Two were in Amherst, and 1 was in the northern district of Halifax, along with the rest of the Crews. Therefore, the 2nd choice seems more likely - ie, that the Joseph Crew(s) who had a Quaker witness and was associated with John Adams, really is a son of John of Charlotte, and therefore my Crews may be lapsed Quakers.

**Cbh - Crews, Ephraim

-

Who is this? Because in his part of the 1787 Hal tax list north district, 2 of 3 Crews were sons of John, I am tentatively assigning him as a son of John of Charlotte.
However, because he was the guardian of Frances Maxey, who married James E. Puckett and moved to Monroe Co, KY, which is near Barren Co, he could be a son of Peter.

According to the IGI, he was the son of James Crews, d. 1740 Hal. Co. James' children are listed as Joel, Ephraim, Richard, Gideon, Andrew, James, Joseph.

In Hal. Co in 1806, an Ephraim Crews m Patsy Bruce.

1812 - Halifax Co - guardian to Frances Maxey

Frances (Fanny) Maxey, a daughter of Josiah Maxey, was born in 1784 in Halifax Co. On Dec 12, 1812, James E. Puckett applied at the Halifax courthouse to marry Frances Maxey with Ephraim Crews, her guardian. [The marriage record describes Ephraim Crews as sur., according to Marian Chiarito's book.] James was said to be a son of Ephraim Puckett. James E. and Frances (Maxey) Puckett moved from Halifax Co, VA to Monroe Co, KY, by 1820.

I don't think this refers to Josiah s/o Richard because that Josiah was a witness in 1768, and therefore was surely born much before 1752.

NOTE - In Chesterfield Co, in the estate of Daniel Fore, decd, there was a Negro named Creece. As far as I know, Creece is a rare slave name. James Bradley, in the early 1780's, had a slave named Creece in Lunenburg Co. James Bradley's daughter Ritter, in 1792, Halifax Co, married Andrew Crews, probable son of Peter Crews. I wonder if, as a result of the first entry above (p. 67A), slave Creece is passed along as follows: Daniel Fore -> John alias Joseph Crews -> Peter Crews -> James Bradley. If so, that would imply that: 1) John alias Joseph may be the same person as John of Charlotte (but if so, why alias Joseph?), and 2) the Crews brothers came to Lunenburg Co by way of Henrico/Chesterfield.
