JENNINGS, DEEMS, WATERS, WOODS, LENARD, LILLARD, DAVIDSON, BRYAN in response to Re: GEE, ODIEN, NOBLE, JENNINGS, COULTER, KINNEY, GLAZEBROOK, TAYLOR, posted by Jeff Bailey on Friday, 19 December 1997, MERCER CO. KY I have an Israel JENNINGS born about 1774 in PA; his father was Col. Henry JENNINGS, mother unknown; Israel moved to Kentucky at an early age (county unknown). The siblings I have for Israel are Lucrecia m. William LENARD; Degrass; Mary m. Jacob DEEMS ; Simeon; William; Israel m. Mary WATERS. I don't know if I have found all of the children of Col. Henry JENNINGS, so Thomas may fit in and your reference to William JENNINGS BRYAN made me think that this may be somehow related to my line. Israel married Mary WATERS about 1799 and had 8 children. They moved to Walnut Hill, IL. His son, Charles WATERS JENNINGS married Maria WOODS. Their daughter, Mariah Elizabeth JENNINGS, b. May 24, 1834 in Walnut Hill, IL; married Silas BRYAN in 1852; 4th child was William JENNINGS BRYAN. Other family names in this group are: LILLARD and DAVIDSON. This geneoalogy for William JENNINGS BRYAN is found in the book, "The Life of William JENNINGS BRYAN " Genevieve Forbes Heerick and John Origen Herrick, copyright 1925 by Grover C. Buxton. I am related to the JENNINGS family through Israel's sister Mary, who married Jacob DEEMS. I have a copy of a letter written by Jacob's son, Jacob Jennings DEEMS listing some JENNINGS ancestry (transcribed by Jacob Jennings DEEMS granddaughter). I would be happy to share what little information on do have my JENNINGS line.

ASHCRAFT, DAVIDSON - ASHCRAFT, Rhoda b. 1804 KY and md. William DAVIDSON 1827 in KY. I would like to verify which county, because I have found Rhoda b. in Richmond, Madison Co KY and that she and William were md. in Irvine, Clay Co KY. Rhoda's parents are James Ashcraft, Sr. and Mary. Some of their children were born in Madison Co. and some in Estill Co. Would like to know if they were md. in Madison Co KY abt. 1794.
Lisa Sons
in response to ASHCRAFT, DAVIDSON, posted by Janalee Garn William Davidson & Rhoda Ashcraft married in Estill Co., Ky. The "Estill Co. Marriage Permissive Notes" compiled by Ed Puckett, pg. 21 indicates the following: "James Davidson, 24 Nov. 1827 for son William to marry Rhoda Ashcraft, Surety: Hosea Ashcraft." I have Rhoda Ashcraft b. 26 Oct 1804 Richmond, Madison Co., Ky. (dau. of James Sr. & Mary Ashcraft. James Ashcraft was in Estill Co., KY until 1836. In 1840 MO. Census, James Sr., Josea, and Amos Ashcraft were all listed. In 1850 in Lafayette Co., MO (adjacent to Jackson Co., MO) living in the John R. Ashcraft home was Mary age 81. Hope this helps!

ASHCRAFT, DAVIDSON - in response to Ashcraft, Davidson, posted by Lisa Sons I was happy to receive a source such as the "Estill Co. Marriage Permissive Notes" for William Davidson & Rhoda Ashcraft's marriage. Where can I find such a list? Maybe more of the family is on it. Makes sense Rhoda Ashcraft was b. in Madison Co., KY because her siblings on both sides of her were born there also. I wonder if there is anyone who knows Rhoda's mother's maiden name. I have her b. 1769 in VA or WV. She probably d. in Lafayette Co., MO. Rhoda's father James was b. abt. 1760/65, prob. in Fayette Co., PA. Do you have any idea where James and Mary were married? I know James' parents were Ephraim and Elizabeth Ashcraft, but I don't know where they were born, married or died. I have 3 children listed, Amos, James, and Prudence.

HANNAH/HANNA, DAVIDSON/DAVISON - I am interested in the Hannah, and Davidson families of Harford Co., MD.

They finally came to rest in Adams Co., OH. I am hoping that some of the other family members might have remained behind in MD, hence the search for those surnames.

I am looking for a family of Davidsons who operated a ferry on the Monongahela River at a point called Davidson's Ferry across the river from Crucible. , possibly. That would put it in Greene Co., I think. Family history says Jeremiah Davidson owned this ferry and was succeeded by his son, Jeremiah, Jr. and that as late as 1847 it was operated by a grandson, James Davidson. The ferry is mentioned in a book entitled: "A Guidebook to Historic Western Pa." by George Swetnam and Helene Smith , on page 132, Fayette Co section, Item 38. I am trying to find Jeremiah Davidson, and his Daughter Rachel, who according to family history married my ancestor Samuel McKee in 1781. Sam was a Rev. War soldier who may have been at a spot called McKee Fort in Virginia about 4 miles from Davidson's Ferry. They had 5 children born at Davidson's Ferry and then moved to Ohio. Childrens names are Lewis, born 1782; Jeremiah, born 1786; Elizabeth, born 1787; Alexander, born 1789; Samuel, born 1793. Four more children were born in Ohio. So far, I have not been able to find proof that Jeremiah had a daughter named Rachel, or that she and Samuel were married. I would appreciate any help. I live in Indianapolis and can look up information here for anyone needing that. Elaine Harper tharper844@aol.com er tharper844@aol.com

DAVIDSON/ WITTEN-- Seek marriage record or any information for Virginia DAVIDSON, daughter of John and Tabitha (WITTEN) DAVIDSON of Tazewell, later Mercer County, Virginia/West Virginia. The DAVIDSONs' property was located on the Bluestone River. In March, 1848, they removed from Mercer County, Virginia, to Washington County, Virginia, according to Tabitha's bounty land and pension applications, filed on John's War of 1812 service from Tazewell County. Several of the DAVIDSONs' children were already residing in Washington County at the time John and Tabitha moved there. Does anyone know what has happened to Mercer County, Virginia, marriage records circa 1840-47? We have had no luck finding Mercer County marriage records in Virginia or West Virginia for this time frame. Are there any (Methodist) ministers' returns or church records for this period which might provide answers? Several of Tabitha's WITTEN relatives were Methodist ministers. Are there any old DAVIDSON or WITTEN Bibles, correspondence, or even family photographs which might provide answers? I will appreciate help or suggestions. Thanks.

Seeking descendants and information about his ancestors. His father was George Clayton, 1723-1786 of Rowan Co., NC Lambert was born 1755 and died 1828. His wife was Sarah Davidson.
George CLAYTON b. c. 1723 (perhaps VA); d. will probated Rowan Co., NC 1786; wife Sarah (DODSON? LAMBERT?), will probated Iredell Co. NC 1800; believed to have lived in present day Iredell Co. Children: (1) Henrietta CLAYTON b. ca. 1745; married: Alexander DAVIDSON (most of their descendants went to TN but some remained in Iredell Co.); (2) Rebecca CLAYTON b. ca. 1747; d. perhaps 1782; married Robert OLIPHANT; (3) Rachel CLAYTON b. ca. 1749; d. before 1800; married: John FALLS; (4) George CLAYTON b. c. 1751; d.1814 (will Iredell Co., NC)married: Margaret (Peggy) THOMPSON (many of their descendants went to Buncombe and Henderson Counties.); (5) Margaret CLAYTON b. c. 1753; married: Robert NEILL; (6) Lambert CLAYTON b. 1755; d. 1828 married: Sarah DAVIDSON; (7) Ann CLAYTON b. ca. 1757; married: Thomas COOK (or COOKE); and (8)Hannah CLAYTON married:James NEILL. Sarah CLAYTON in her will mentions the following grandchildren: 1. Ann NEILL (probably the daughter of Margaret Neill); 2. Betsey NEILL (also probably the daughter of Margaret NEILL); Sarah Scott NEILL (also probably the daughter of Marget NEILL); Sarah CLAYTON (not sure which son she belongs to; and Lambert OLIPHANT (at this point I assume that his mother died before 1783 when it appears his father married again) I have information on many descendants but I am particularly interested in proving George CLAYTON's (1723-1786) father.

Polk, who had received 5,000 acres in a North Carolina land grant in Maury County, was a friend and neighbor of the Davidsons in Iredale Co., NC.

DAVIDSON/ WITTEN-- Seek marriage record or any information for Virginia DAVIDSON, daughter of John and Tabitha (WITTEN) DAVIDSON of Tazewell, later Mercer County, Virginia/West Virginia. The DAVIDSONs' property was located on the Bluestone River. In March, 1848, they removed from Mercer County, Virginia, to Washington County, Virginia, according to Tabitha's bounty land and pension applications, filed on John's War of 1812 service from Tazewell County. Several of the DAVIDSONs' children were already residing in Washington County at the time John and Tabitha moved there. Does anyone know what has happened to Mercer County, Virginia, marriage records circa 1840-47? We have had no luck finding Mercer County marriage records in Virginia or West Virginia for this time frame. Are there any (Methodist) ministers' returns or church records for this period which might provide answers? Several of Tabitha's WITTEN relatives were Methodist ministers. Are there any old DAVIDSON or WITTEN Bibles, correspondence, or even family photographs which might provide answers? I will appreciate help or suggestions. Thanks.

I am looking for a family of Davidsons who operated a ferry on the Monongahela River at a point called Davidson's Ferry across the river from Crucible. , possibly. That would put it in Greene Co., I think. Family history says Jeremiah Davidson owned this ferry and was succeeded by his son, Jeremiah, Jr. and that as late as 1847 it was operated by a grandson, James Davidson. The ferry is mentioned in a book entitled: "A Guidebook to Historic Western Pa." by George Swetnam and Helene Smith , on page 132, Fayette Co section, Item 38. I am trying to find Jeremiah Davidson, and his Daughter Rachel, who according to family history married my ancestor Samuel McKee in 1781. Sam was a Rev. War soldier who may have been at a spot called McKee Fort in Virginia about 4 miles from Davidson's Ferry. They had 5 children born at Davidson's Ferry and then moved to Ohio. Childrens names are Lewis, born 1782; Jeremiah, born 1786; Elizabeth, born 1787; Alexander, born 1789; Samuel, born 1793. Four more children were born in Ohio. So far, I have not been able to find proof that Jeremiah had a daughter named Rachel, or that she and Samuel were married. I would appreciate any help. I live in Indianapolis and can look up information here for anyone needing that. Elaine Harper tharper844@aol.com

DAVIDSON, Matthew - Need your help of course.. This is on Matthew Davidson. He came to Knox County, Ohio with his wife Mary to live out his life. He was 66 yrs. old in the 1850 Census and was listed in the Knox County Ohio Census. I heard a rumor that he was in a Cemetery called something like Brinkhaven or something like that. Does anyone have access to Cemetery Books and could look this up for me. And should anyone know if he had children and what their names were and when they were born and who they married wouldn't be bad either.. Honestly, I will take anything I can get at this point..

HANNAH/HANNA, DAVIDSON/DAVISON - I am interested in the Hannah, and Davidson families of Harford Co., MD. My Mary Hannah married John Davidson in Lancaster Co., PA in 1768 and we think that they lived in Harford Co., MD for a while before continuing the migration to Berkeley Co., WV, perhaps Mercer Co., KY. They finally came to rest in Adams Co., OH. I am hoping that some of the other family members might have remained behind in MD, hence the search for those surnames.

Rhoda's parents are James Ashcraft, Sr. and Mary. Some of their children were born in Madison Co. and some in Estill Co. Would like to know if they were md. in Madison Co KY abt. 1794.

in response to ASHCRAFT, DAVIDSON, posted by Janalee Garn on Sat, 25 Jul 1998 William Davidson & Rhoda Ashcraft married in Estill Co., Ky. The "Estill Co. Marriage Permissive Notes" compiled by Ed Puckett, pg. 21 indicates the following: "James Davidson, 24 Nov. 1827 for son William to marry Rhoda Ashcraft, Surety: Hosea Ashcraft." I have Rhoda Ashcraft b. 26 Oct 1804 Richmond, Madison Co., Ky. (dau. of James Sr. & Mary Ashcraft. James Ashcraft was in Estill Co., KY until 1836. In 1840 MO. Census, James Sr., Josea, and Amos Ashcraft were all listed. In 1850 in Lafayette Co., MO (adjacent to Jackson Co., MO) living in the John R. Ashcraft home was Mary age 81. Hope this helps!
ASHCRAFT, DAVIDSON Janalee Garn on Sat, 25 Jul 1998
in response to Ashcraft, Davidson, posted by Lisa Sons on Sat, 25 Jul 1998 I was happy to receive a source such as the "Estill Co. Marriage Permissive Notes" for William Davidson & Rhoda Ashcraft's marriage. Where can I find such a list? Maybe more of the family is on it. Makes sense Rhoda Ashcraft was b. in Madison Co., KY because her siblings on both sides of her were born there also. I wonder if there is anyone who knows Rhoda's mother's maiden name. I have her b. 1769 in VA or WV. She probably d. in Lafayette Co., MO. Rhoda's father James was b. abt. 1760/65, prob. in Fayette Co., PA. Do you have any idea where James and Mary were married? I know James' parents were Ephraim and Elizabeth Ashcraft, but I don't know where they were born, married or died. I have 3 children listed, Amos, James, and Prudence.

in response to Re: GEE, ODIEN, NOBLE, JENNINGS, COULTER, KINNEY, GLAZEBROOK, TAYLOR, posted by Jeff Bailey on Friday, 19 December 1997, MERCER CO. KY I have an Israel JENNINGS born about 1774 in PA; his father was Col. Henry JENNINGS, mother unknown; Israel moved to Kentucky at an early age (county unknown). The siblings I have for Israel are Lucrecia m. William LENARD; Degrass; Mary m. Jacob DEEMS ; Simeon; William; Israel m. Mary WATERS. I don't know if I have found all of the children of Col. Henry JENNINGS, so Thomas may fit in and your reference to William JENNINGS BRYAN made me think that this may be somehow related to my line. Israel married Mary WATERS about 1799 and had 8 children. They moved to Walnut Hill, IL. His son, Charles WATERS JENNINGS married Maria WOODS. Their daughter, Mariah Elizabeth JENNINGS, b. May 24, 1834 in Walnut Hill, IL; married Silas BRYAN in 1852; 4th child was William JENNINGS BRYAN. Other family names in this group are: LILLARD and DAVIDSON. This geneoalogy for William JENNINGS BRYAN is found in the book, "The Life of William JENNINGS BRYAN " Genevieve Forbes Heerick and John Origen Herrick, copyright 1925 by Grover C. Buxton. I am related to the JENNINGS family through Israel's sister Mary, who married Jacob DEEMS. I have a copy of a letter written by Jacob's son, Jacob Jennings DEEMS listing some JENNINGS ancestry (transcribed by Jacob Jennings DEEMS granddaughter). I would be happy to share what little information on do have my JENNINGS line.
