25001 (1) Streeter, Perry, "Gerrit Jansen Van Oldenburg: DNA Testing Yields More Garrison Descendants in New Jersey & New York," New Netherland Connections, Vol. 15, No. 1 (2009), p. 19:

"The [property] line of Dongan aliven [?] [sic] and Joseph berstido [Bastido]" was identified in a 26 September 1716 road survey of Staten Island and "Duncan Olpherts" witnessed the will of Alexander Stewart of Richmond County on 11 February 1716/17. Thus, Duncan and Mary (_____) Oliphant were still residing on Staten Island in 1714 when the sisters of Johannes/John Gerritsen/Garrison who also resided there were identified in the estate of their brother, Cornelis Garretson. It is logical to conclude that, by omission from the estate, Mary (_____) Oliphant was not a sister of Johannes/John Gerritsen/Garrison. Duncan Oliphant's eldest son, David, was likely named in honor of Duncan's father but the Garrisons had no known son bearing that name, so it also logical to conclude that Hester (_____) Garrison was probably not Duncan's sister. Thus, Duncan Oliphant probably identified Johannes/John Gerritsen/Garrison as his brother-in-law because their wives were sisters. Perhaps he felt compelled to explicitly use the phrase, "my brother-in-law," because the connection was actually through their wives. If Mary and Hester were sisters, the fact that both had known (or probable) sons named James may ultimately prove to be a clue for determining their origins.

(2) Message posted by Perry Streeter on 9 December 2014 to the Dutch-Colonies-L mailing list:

. . . the available evidence uncovered to date suggests that Hester, wife of Johannes/John GERRITSEN/GARRISON . . . , and Mary, wife of Duncan OLIPHANT, were *probably* sisters. In any case, it is highly unlikely that Mary (_____) OLIPHANT was a GARRISON, as many have previously assumed based only on the phrase, "my brother-in-law John GARRISON," appearing in Duncan OLIPHANT'S will.

(3) Some sources claim not only that Mary (_____) OLIPHANT was a GARRISON, but also that she was a daughter of Lambert GARRISON. The compiler has seen no evidence that Lambert GARRISON had a daughter named Mary. See Miller, Phyllis J., "The Garrison-Gerritsen and Segers Descendants of Gerrit Segers," The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. 124, No. 3 (July 1993), pp. 141-142.

The parentage of Elisabeth Gysberts remains unknown. However, by a process of eliminating other potential candidates, Phyllis Miller and I independently arrived at the same point of speculation - was Elisabeth the otherwise unknown fourth "Child, living in 1659 but not identified" of Gÿsbert Teunissen and his first wife Aeltje Wouters? Obviously, Elisabeth's patronymic was Gysberts and she named her eldest known daughter Aeltie. If this identification is correct, Elisabeth was probably born before 1649 when Gÿsbert and Aeltje arrived in the colony; otherwise, we would expect to find her baptism in the New Amsterdam church.

John Lindsey, son of Samuel Lindsey of Newberry County, South Carolina, has been confused with another man named John L. Lindsey who lived in Wayne County, Tennessee. In a 1993 book titled The Legacy of Our Lindseys, written by William Lindsey McDonald, the author claimed that John L. Lindsey, born circa 1764, was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Ford Lindsey of Newberry County, South Carolina. McDonald stated in the introduction to the book that he did not have documentation to substantiate much of the material in his book. McDonald also stated that there might be serious errors in the book as a result of the lack of documentation. Much of McDonald's information about his early Lindsey ancestors was based on family tradition. McDonald also stated in the introduction that much more research needed to be done to verify the material in his book.

Newer research in primary source documents proves that John Lindsey, son of Samuel Lindsey of Newberry County, South Carolina was not John L. Lindsey, ancestor of William Lindsey McDonald. Samuel Lindsey's son, John Lindsey, was born after 1775, and he lived in Newberry County as an adult. John Lindsey was living in Newberry County when he administered the estate of his mother, Elizabeth Lindsey, in 1827. John L. Lindsey of Wayne County, Tennessee was living in Tennessee by 1820. He and his son, Sylvester B. Lindsey, were enumerated on the 1820 census in Maury County (spelled Linza). Original signatures of both John L. Lindsey of Wayne County, Tennessee and John Lindsey of Bush River, Newberry County prove that they were two different men. Records also show that John Lindsey, son of Samuel Lindsey, married a cousin named Elizabeth Lindsey in Newberry Co. ca. 1823. DNA evidence places the family of Samuel Lindsey in Lindsay Surname DNA Project Group 2, while a descendant of John L. Lindsey of Wayne Co., TN has been placed in Group 8.

Jacob [Lindsey, Sr.] was born by 1746 in Frederick Co., Virginia, where he married Elizabeth Abrell by 1772. He has been proved a son of Edmond Lindsey, Sr. (b. ca. 1697) and his wife, Elizabeth Beasley Lindsey. . . .

Jacob Lindsey settled on land on Morris Creek in the northeastern part of today's Wilkes Co., GA. Early Wilkes Co. records show that numerous other Lindsey's lived in the same area shortly after Jacob's date of settlement. Most of them appear to have been related to Jacob, except for John "Silverfist" Lindsay, who lived in the southern part of the county in the Little River area. . . .

Though Jacob Lindsey probably had several children, only one has been proved so far. Jacob Lindsey, Jr. was born 1778 in Frederick Co, Virginia. He married Phoebe Lindsey (thought to be his first cousin) in 1806. Jacob Lindsey, Jr. bought the land in Jones Co., GA that his father won in the 1807 Georgia land lottery, and he and Phoebe moved there to establish a farm. Other Lindsey's who lived in the area who might have been sons and daughters of Jacob Lindsey Sr. were named John, Abraham, Elijah, James, and Sarah. . . .

25005 (1) Susan Grabek :

Edmund and John Lindsey are believed to have been brothers who migrated from Cecil Co., MD to the Long Marsh area of old Frederick Co., VA ca. 1733. Their father may have been Edmund Lindsey who was born in Charles Co., MD about 1665. He married Abigail. Edmund died in Cecil Co., MD about 1709.

25006 (1) Susan Grabek :

This Edmund Lindsey and John Lindsey are believed to have been brothers who migrated from Cecil Co., MD to the Long Marsh area of old Frederick Co., VA ca. 1733. Their father may have been an Edmund Lindsey who was born in Charles Co., MD about 1665. He married Abigail. Edmund died in Cecil Co., MD about 1709.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Edmond Lindsey, born circa 1697, married Elizabeth Beasley in St. George's Parish, Baltimore County (today's Harford Co.), Maryland in 1725. Edmund and Elizabeth moved to the Long Marsh area by 1733. Edmund was a frequent juryman in Frederick County. He was also in the Frederick County militia during the French and Indian War. No probate or will has been found for Edmund, who last appeared in Frederick Co. records in 1782.

Because of the lack of a will or probate, it is difficult to know the names of Edmond Lindsey's children with any certainty. St. George's Parish records show that Edmond and Elizabeth Lindsey had a son named John, born in 1731. It is not known what became of this son John. He may have moved to South Carolina.

Edmond Lindsey may also have been the father of Edmond Lindsey Junior, born circa 1730, who died in Newberry County, South Carolina about 1818. Edmond's 1816 will named a wife, Mary, and children Nancy Hughes, Ruthe Pearson, William, Edmund, and Phoebe Ogilvie. . . .

Jacob Lindsey Sr. (b. by 1746) is the only proved son of Edmond Lindsey Sr. to date. Jacob Lindsey left the Long Marsh area about 1785 to settle in Wilkes Co., GA. . . .

LINDSEY, Edmund (I9238)
 
25007 (1) Susan Grabek :

This John Lindsey and Edmund Lindsey are believed to have been brothers who migrated from Cecil Co., MD to the Long Marsh area of old Frederick Co., VA ca. 1733. Their father may have been an Edmund Lindsey who was born in Charles Co., MD about 1665. He married Abigail. Edmund died in Cecil Co., MD about 1709.

(2) Susan Grabek :

John Lindsey was the first Lindsey male to appear in Frederick County records, serving on a jury in 1740. In 1741, John Lindsey purchased a tract of land from Isaac Pennington. This was the first of many land transactions that John Lindsey made in the Long Marsh area. According to author Cecil O'Dell (Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia, p. 214), John Lindsey amassed 2,419 acres of land in the Long Marsh area. . . .

John Lindsey was a justice of the peace and a vestryman in Frederick County. He was also a captain in the local militia during the French and Indian War. By 1770, John Lindsey had moved to the area of South Carolina that is present day Newberry County. Most of John's children went with him to South Carolina. John Lindsey had four sons who were soldiers in the Revolutionary War in South Carolina, as well as several grandsons who were also patriots.

John Lindsey made a will in Newberry County in 1783 in which he named his wife, Elce, and children: James, Sarah Speaks (married to Thomas Speake), John, Abigail Wells (married to Humphrey Wells), Thomas, and Samuel. John's will also named a son-in-law, Gerrard Smith (married to Esther Lindsey).

(3) Susan Grabek :

John Lindsey, Senior, one of the Long Marsh Lindsey patriarchs, was born ca. 1700. He may have been a son of Edmond (ca. 1665 - 1709) and Abigail Lindsey of Cecil County, Maryland. This has not been proved. John migrated to Virginia sometime in the 1730's, and settled in old Frederick County (present day Clarke Co.), where he first appeared in records in 1740. John Lindsey was a court justice and a vestryman of the Anglican Church in Frederick Co., VA. He was also a captain in the local militia during the French and Indian War. . . .

In 1767, John Lindsey Sr. sold land to Thomas Lindsey Sr. in Frederick Co., VA. John Lindsey sold many of his land holdings in Frederick County in the late 1760's. . . . By 1770, John Lindsey had moved to the area of South Carolina that is present day Newberry County. Many of John's children went with him to South Carolina. It is said that John Lindsey had four sons (John, James, Thomas, and Samuel) who were soldiers in the Revolutionary War in South Carolina, as well as several grandsons who served.

John Lindsey was married to Elce. He wrote his will in 1783, and he died in Newberry County in 1786.

Land Records:

John Lindsey Jr. sold a tract of land to his father, John Lindsey Sr., in 1783. The parcel, 193 acres in size, was located on Kings Creek. It was part of a 350 acre tract that Isaac Pennington had willed to his daughter, Charity Pennington King, wife of Charles King. The land had originally been granted to George Wiles. . . .

John Lindsey's will:

John Lindsey made a will in Newberry Co. in 1783 in which he named his wife, Elce, and children: James, Sarah Speaks (married to Thomas Speake), John, Abigail Wells (married to Humphrey Wells), Thomas, and Samuel. John's will also named a son-in-law, Gerrard Smith (married to Esther Lindsey):

BERRYVILLE.

(Clark[e] County, formerly Frederick County.)

From the tradition in this family of its ancestry, I am strongly led to believe that it is connected in a collateral way with the Northumberland and Fairfax Lindsays. The tradition is that in 1740, two brothers, Thomas and John Lindsay, removed from some part of the lower Potomac, possibly Northumberland, and bought and settled here an immense tract of land known then, as now, as Longmarsh, and were called wealthy farmers of the Shenandoah valley, and that they had a sister who married a Hierome Lindsay Opie, an ancestor, probably, of the Hierome Lindsay Opie who owned a large and elegant farm near Berryville in 1850.

These said two brothers were cotemporary with Robert Lindsay of Northumberland, who removed from there and settled in Fairfax county about 1743, and it is barely possible that the three were brothers, sons of the one father, Opie Lindsay of Northumberland.

(5) O'Dell, Cecil, Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia, Marceline, MO: Walsworth Publishing Company, 1995, pp. 213-215:

DAUGHERTY/LINDSAY

After Nathaniel Daugherty (from Baltimore County, Maryland) sold 50 acres of land in the northwest corner of Cecil County, Maryland to William Teague on 19 October 1733, he moved to Virginia. He purchased 860 acres on Long Marsh Run from Jost Hite and received from Hite a bond assuring him a clear title to the land. The 860 acres was surveyed for Hite on 6 November 1734 and sold to Daugherty on 13 November 1735. . . . The tract is located on Clarke County, Virginia Highway 611, about four miles north of Berryville, Virginia, with U.S. Highway 340 running across the southeast section.

On 3 June 1743, Articles of Agreement were drawn between Nathaniel Daugherty Sr. and Isaac Larue (of Hopewell, Hunterdon County, West New Jersey) for the purchase of 250 acres of the 860-acre survey. "Buyer Larue is to have a Patent from Jost Hite, pursuant to a Bond" [, which Patent] was conveyed from Daugherty to Larue in 1737. Isaac paid a total of 100 pounds for the land and improvements made by Nathaniel; 60 pounds were to be paid by the middle of October 1743 and the remaining 40 pounds paid by March 1745).

Daugherty had moved to Granville County, North Carolina and was living there on 15 November 1748 when he gave power of attorney to John Lindsay to dispose of the 860-acre tract. He stated that he had already sold 300 acres to Thomas Lindsay, 300 acres to Edmond Lindsay (Sr.) and 100 acres to George Johnston. The remainder was to be sold by his attorney.

LINDSAY

John Lindsay, exercising his power of attorney, had a resurvey made by George Washington for the 860-acre (1734 survey) Daugherty tract. on 2 April 1751, he received a Fairfax grant for 660 acres which was modified to 750 acres on 2 July 1751. He then sold 345 acres of this grant to Thomas Lindsay for 50 pounds on 16 April 1751. The grant was recorded as 300 acres in the Power of Attorney statement. On 15 April 1751, he sold 112 acres (100 acres in Power of Attorney statement) of the grant to Edmond Lindsay (Sr.) for five pounds. On 19 July 1751, John sold 22 acres (100 acres in Power of Attorney statement) of the grant to George Johnston for nine pounds and on 18 July 1751, he sold 276 acres (250 acres in Power of Attorney statement) of the grant to Isaac Larue for 100 pounds. These transactions dispose of all of the 750 acres (plus five acres) grant land.

John was probably the son of Edmond Lindsay Sr. (b. 1697). Edmond Sr. was 73 years of age when he swore in a deposition (6 September 1770) that he had been in Virginia about 37 years. (1733) Edmond Sr. received a Fairfax grant on 4 August 1766 for 274 acres adjacent south of the west section of the 860 acres. . . . From 3 October 1760 to 2 March 1770, he and his wife Elizabeth sold this land to Edmond Lindsay Jr, Jacob Lindsay and Robert Hollingsworth.

John Lindsay received a total of 2,419 acres, which was more land acquired through Fairfax grants, than any other Lindsay. The grants were: 400 acres in Hampshire County (5 August 1750); 223 acres adjacent the 80 acres he purchased in 1742 from Isaac Pennington . . . (25 October 1750); 424 acres adjacent east of John Vanmeter on Warm Springs Road (. . . 2 March 1752); 195 acres on Cacapon River, Hampshire County (16 July 1760); 264 acres on Little Cacapon, Hampshire County (17 July 1760); 465 acres adjacent north of the northwest section of Isaac Pennington?s 500-acre patent land . . . (29 July 1761); 448 acres adjacent south of the 860-acre survey . . . , and adjacent north of the 465-acre grant (20 March 1762).

John and his wife Alice sold 213 acres on 28 May 1756 to James Lindsay and his wife Ruth. The land was part of the 424 acres on Rentfrow Spring (of Opequon Spring). They also sold the remaining part (212 acres) on the same day to their son-in-law Thomas Speake (married to their daughter Sarah). Each part was sold for 50 pounds. On 1 June 1761, they sold 241 acres (of the 448 acres) to Thomas Lindsay for 25 pounds. The Hampshire land was sold in 1762 and 1763. John and Alice made their last sale of land while in Frederick County to Charles Mynn Thurston for 900 pounds on 5 May 1768. This final transaction consisted of 753 acres from several different tracts.

They probably moved shortly after the 1768 land sale to Berkeley County, South Carolina. (Laurens County-Newberry County) There, John assigned his power of attorney to Edward Snickers on 3 June 1772 to sell the 223-acre grant land then occupied by Dr. Humphrey Wells.

Old Frederick County Parish Record

Two pages from a Frederick County Parish record show signatures of parishoners [sic] who participated in the communion (Eucharist) during 1761-1763. The register was found in an original book among miscellaneous Frederick County records in the Virginia State Library, Archives Division. At the top of the register is this statement: "I do declare that I do believe there is not any transubstantiation in the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper, and in the Elements of Bread and Wine, at or after the Consecration thereof by any Person Whatsoever.? This was one way of saying that the communion table was for Protestants only.

Some persons who signed the parish register were: Nicholas M_____ (German), John Hite, Jacob Morgan, Thomas Caton, _____ Mandley, James Craik, James Ireson, John Neaville, John McKensie, John Christopher (Heintz?), James Keith, Thomas Speake, Lewis Moore, Cornelius Vansdell, Peter Hog (on June 1, 1762), Joseph Longacre (a German signature), Joseph Glass, John Lindsey, Thomas Bryan Martin, John Sheen, Richard Paris (Pearis), John Watson, John Taylor, Edward Robinson, David Shepherd, Jeremiah Odell, John Shealy (His X Mark?the only person who could not sign his own name), Charles Smith, Gabriel Jones, Thomas Rutherford, Thomas Whitson, William Overall, Thomas Wadlington, Archibald Wager, Humphrey Wells, Isaac Russell, Thomas Lowe, John Kennedy, Joseph A_____ (not legible), Elijah Isaacs(?), John Linsey, Daniel Bush, John Edwards, Edward Rogers Jr., Morgan Morgan, Walter Moffett, John Waton (German), Van Swearington, John Wager, Wastley Whit, John Dark, Alex Lemen, John Jenkins, Martin _____ (German), Richard Jackman, Adam Stephen, Burr Harrison, Angus McDonald, Thomas Helm, and Henry Netherton. With several exceptions, this list represents persons in the power structure of Frederick County in 1761-1763. It is obvious that no women signed the register.

pp. 64-65:

During 1755-1756, the Indian attacks were so brutal in Old Frederick County that many families fled from the area, some to the Piedmont belt of North and South Carolina, and some to Maryland or Pennsylvania. Certain families returned after the warfare subsided in 1763, while others sought resettlement along new frontiers. . . .

In April 1756, Lord Fairfax, county lieutenant for Frederick County, called a council of war to regulate the militia against daily attacks by the Indians. Present at the meeting were: John Hite, major; John Lindsey, Isaac Parkins, Richard Morgan, Samuel Odell, Edward Rodgers, Jeremiah Smith, Thomas Caton, and Paul Long, all captains. When those officers could find only 15 men to go against the enemy Lord Fairfax discharged them because they were not a large enough force to wage warfare.

Shortly afterward, Jeremiah Smith raised twenty men, and with his small force, defeated a much larger force during a fierce battle near Lost River, in what is now Hardy County, W.Va. A roadside marker near that site provides further detail about the battle.

John Lindsey, an early settler in Newberry County, came to South Carolina from Pennsylvania several years before the beginning of the Revolutionary War. He made will dated August 9, 1783 and died about 1787, leaving widow, Alce, and children as follows: James, Sarah Speake, John, Abigail Wells, Thomas, and wife of Jared Smith. Mrs. Alce Lindsey died about 1828; she was a daughter of a Crosson. The sons were Revolutionary War soldiers.

[Note by compiler: John LINDSEY came to SC from Frederick County, VA., not from PA.]

The Long Lane settlement, consisting of . . . Colonel John Lindsey, and others, was thoroughly Whig, and hence the inhabitants were often struck at privately, and in detail, by the Tories. They never met them in a fair field and in broad day, without repenting their temerity. 
LINDSEY, Col. John (I9240)
 
25008 (1) Susan Grabek :

Jacob Lindsey Jr., b. 1778 in VA, . . . married Phoebe (b. 1781), who may have been a first cousin. Jacob and Phoebe settled in Jones Co., GA, where Jacob died in 1857. Jacob and Phoebe Lindsey had fourteen children, all documented in their family bible. Birth years are in parentheses: Joseph (1807), James (1808), Whitfield (1809), Elias (1810), Jacob (1812), Benjamin (1813), Thomas (1814), John (1816), Elijah (1817), Jesse (1818), Caroline (1819), Elizabeth (1821), Rebekah (1823), and Hiram (1826). After the death of her husband, Phoebe Lindsey lived with her oldest son, Joseph, in Tallapoosa Co., AL where she died in 1867.

(2) Lindsey, James A., "Jacob and Phoebea Lindsey," in Lindsey Newsletter: Southern Colonial Branches, Vol. 1, No. 2 (May 1981), New York, NY: Elliott Lindsey Stringham, pp. 34-38:

To begin with, my line of Lindseys go back from Coosa County, Alabama, to Jones County, Georgia, and my Great-great-great-grandfather JACOB LINDSEY, JR. JACOB, JR., was born in Virginia on February 5, 1778, the son of JACOB LINDSAY, SR., JACOB, SR.'s wife's name is unknown to us, as are the names of all his sons, although we know that JACOB, JR., had a brother named THOMAS, and another named JOHN. We think there may have been other brothers, but if so, their names have been lost to us.

We do know that JACOB LINDSEY, SR., and his family, including JACOB, JR., came to Wilkes County, Georgia, and settled on land acquired on a bounty land warrant issued on April 4 , 1785. The land in the warrant book was described as "200 acres good land."

JACOB, SR., was granted an additional 350 acres in Wilkes County on Morris's Creek under a warrant dated May 2, 1785. On March 24, 1792, JACOB, SR., sold thirty acres of this last land to a neighbor, Richard Heard, for the sum of 30 pounds Sterling, and the deed was witnessed by JOHN LINDSAY. On the 7th of May, 1800, JACOB, SR., sold an additional eleven acres of his land on Morris's Creek to his neighbor Isaiah Laudder for the sum of "twenty-five dollars." This deed was witnessed by ABRAHAM LINDSEY and JACOB LINDSEY, JR.

In 1807, Jones County was distributed by the 1807 Land Lottery, and JACOB LINDSEY, SR., living in Wilkes County at the time, drew land lot 56 in the 10th land district of original Baldwin County. That lot lies in Jones County, which was created in 1807. This lot contained 202½ acres, and was granted to JACOB LINDSEY, SR., on September 2, 1808.

At this point, let us back up for two years to 1806. Wilkes County marriage records show that JACOB LINDSAY and PHOEBEA LINDSAY were granted a marriage license on May 12, 1806, and were married by Thomas Anderson, Justice of the Peace, in Wilkes County on May 14, 1806.

Now back to 1808, and the above 202½ acres granted to JACOB, SR., in newly created Jones County. A deed filed with the Jones County Court Clerk on April 26, 1810, shows that JACOB LINDSEY, SR., of Wilkes County, sold to JACOB LINDSEY, JR., of Jones County, the above 202½ acres of land in Jones County for the sum of fifty dollars.

So, JACOB, JR., and PHOEBEA had left JACOB, SR.'s, farm in Wilkes County and started farming their own land in Jones County. Interestingly, PHOEBEA LINDSEY was a first cousin to her husband JACOB, JR. Her father was ISAAC LINDSAY of South Carolina, brother of JACOB LINDSAY, SR. PHOEBEA's mother's name was RACHAEL. PHOEBEA LINDSEY was born in South Carolina on March 10, 1781.

Before we take up JACOB, JR., and PHOEBEA's history and their children, let us return to JACOB, SR., in Wilkes County. JACOB, SR., and wife continued to live on their large farm on Morris's Creek and on the 22nd day of September, 1810, sold and conveyed title to the farm to JAMES LINDSEY (thought to be either a son or nephew) with the express proviso in the deed that he and his wife continue to live on the land in the place they resided on without any disturbance during the remainder of their lives. This deed was recorded in Wilkes County courthouse on August 3, 1811.

Another interesting point about JACOB, SR.'S, life in Wilkes County is this: His father was supposedly named ELIJAH LINDSEY; however, we know almost nothing about ELIJAH LINDSEY except for the fact that he was the father of JACOB, SR., ISAAC, THOMAS, ELIAS, HIRAM, and DAVID LINDSEY. However, we did uncover this information in old Wilkes County records: Apparently ELIJAH LINDSEY came to Wilkes County sometime in the late 1780s or early 1790s, from where we know not. We do know that he was granted 200 acres of land on Pistol Creek in Wilkes County from a warrant dated August 6, 1798. This land adjoined THOMAS LINDSEY's land, and somehow the transaction involved both THOMAS LINDSEY and EDMUND LINDSEY. An interesting point here is that the surveyor's plat or drawing of this 200 acres with its description is almost identical to the drawing and description of the 200 acres granted to JACOB, SR., in 1785. I believe it is the same land.

Question is, who exactly was this ELIJAH LINDSEY? He was not a brother, of this we are almost certain. He must have been either JACOB, SR.'s, father or a son whom we have been unaware of all these years. My guess is that it was JACOB, SR.'s, father ELIJAH who came on to Georgia from one of the Carolinas to spend his last years close to his son or sons. Anyway, ELIJAH LINDSEY died in Wilkes County sometime in the Spring of 1815. Wilkes County records show that JOHN LINDSEY was appointed administrator of ELIJAH'S estate and that JACOB LINDSEY, SR., entered into a bond on his account as administrator in the sum of two thousand dollars.

Subsequent to an appraisal of ELIJAH'S estate, his personal property was sold and those individuals buying portions of it were: DUEY (?) LINDSEY, JAMES LINDSEY, LANDFORD PULLIN, JOHN LINDSEY, and JACOB LINDSEY. The sale of the estate was made on the 23rd of June, 1817. Although there is no will found for ELIJAH, we do know that a portion of the 200 acres grant to ELIJAH in 1798 was inherited by JACOB, SR., as evidenced by the deed to this portion granted by JACOB, SR., to one JOS. PULLIN on August 22, 1816, in Wilkes County, wherein JACOB, SR., conveys ". . . his rights and claim of a proportionable part of a tract of land formerly owned by Elijah Lindsay, Deceased. . . ." This deed was recorded in Wilkes County on April 13, 1818.

As far as we are able to determine, JACOB, SR., died sometime after 1818 in Wilkes County, although he did not leave a will. He apparently continued to live until his death on his land and farm which was bought by JAMES LINDSEY, as set forth above.

Now, let us go back to JACOB, JR., and PHOEBEA in Jones County and pick up there in 1809 or 1810. They had left JACOB, SR.'s, farm in Wilkes County and brought their first born son, JOSEPH, along to Jones County, where they began building a farm out of the 202½ acres on Glady Creek in northern Jones County. They built a rail pen to hold the livestock and a portion of it was used by them for living quarters until their log house was finished. There in this log house was born their second son, JAMES, on May 7, 1808, the first of their children to be born in Jones County on the so-called "Old Home Plantation." A list of the names, birthdates, places of death, and dates of death of JACOB, JR., and PHOEBEA LINDSEY's children are as follows:

1. JOSEPH, born February 28, 1807, in Wilkes County; died December 20, 1883, in Tallapoosa County, Alabama.

2. JAMES, born May 7, 1808, in Jones County; died October 28, 1878, in Jones County.

3. WHITEFIELD, born July 9, 1809, in Jones County; died March 13, 1886, in Alabama.

JACOB JR. and PHOEBEA LINDSEY lived on the 400-plus acre Old Home Plantation and raised cotton until JACOB, JR.'s, death at 12 O'Clock on June 13, 1857. He left a fairly substantial estate, including eight Negro slaves. My Great-great-grandfather ELIAS was named as administrator [executor?] of the will, in which the old gentleman stated: ". . . I commit my soul to God who gave it, and direct my body to be decently interred in the Family burial grounds in such manner suitable to my condition and circumstances in life."

Subsequent to the settlement and sale of the JACOB LINDSEY estate, PHOEBEA left Georgia and went to live with her oldest son JOSEPH on his large plantation near Newsite, Alabama, in Tallapoosa County. Other members of the family also left Jones County, Georgia, after the death of JACOB, JR., one of whom was my Great-great-grandfather ELIAS, who married MARY ANN BUTLER on September 3rd, 1857, in Jasper County, Georgia. Shortly after JACOB, JR.'s, estate was settled, ELIAS and MARY ANN migrated to Coosa County, Alabama, where they established a good cotton farm, began a family, and lived until ELIAS's death on February 6, 1861. He left a substantial amount of land and thirteen Negro slaves at the time of his death. My Great-grandfather ELIAS was born just two days after his death, on February 8, 1861.

PHOEBEA LINDSEY continued to live in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, until her death on March 16, 1867. She is buried in the LINDSEY family cemetery beside Lindsey Mill Road, off Hillabee Road, near Alexander City, Alabama. . . .

[T]he JACOB LINDSEY, JR., bible, which was last known to be in the possession of a Levis Tankersley in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, about thirty or forty years ago. It has disappeared and we no longer are sure of its existence. However, the information written in it has been transcribed by various people in years past and the basic information is always the same, except for some differences in dates.

For instance, the bible stated that THOMAS LINDSEY came to this country from England in 1615, or another version, in 1715, or another, 1675. However, all versions all agree that he settled in Halifax County, Virginia. This is very strange, in as much as I understand that Halifax County was not formed until around 1750. Also, old handed down tradition is that the early Lindseys came from the Shenandoah River Valley in Virginia, and had raised fine horses and tobacco on their land along the Shenandoah River. I have a copy of an old letter written in 1921 to my grandfather from a James Benjamin Franklin Lindsey of Roanoke, Alabama, which states that the Lindsey line as given in JACOB, JR.'s, bible was corroborated by another Lindsey in that area who, while in Virginia fighting during the Civil War, got acquainted with an old lady there who gave him the same Lindsey line. This old lady's name was "BROCKMAN."

Another tradition handed down was that ". . . Great-grandfather Jacob fought in one of the old wars." This has always been understood to have been the Revolutionary War by recent generations of our line. This reference is to JACOB LINDSEY, SR., and I have found mentions of JACOB LINDSEY, SR., of Wilkes County, Georgia, as being a Revolutionary soldier whose name appeared on land lottery lists as such. In as much as JACOB, JR., was born on February 5, 1778, in Virginia, it would appear that any Revolutionary service rendered by JACOB, SR., would have been in Virginia during this period. Also, you will remember that he appeared in Wilkes County, Georgia, in the early part of 1785, after the war ended. I have found where a JACOB LINDSEY was recommended for the rank of ensign in the Frederick County, Virginia, militia on April 11, 1783, Also, an ABRAHAM LINDSAY was recommended for the rank of captain, both in the 1st Battalion. I have no way of knowing if this JACOB LINDSAY is our JACOB LINDSEY, SR., of Wilkes County.

St. George's Parish records show that Edmond and Elizabeth Lindsey had a son named John, born in 1731. It is not known what became of this son John. He may have moved to South Carolina. 
LINDSEY, John (I16060)
 
25010 (1) Susan Grabek :

Edmond Lindsey is a presumed son of Edmond Lindsey Sr. and his wife, Elizabeth Beasley Lindsey, of old Frederick Co., VA. Edmond appeared in numerous court and land records in Frederick Co., VA between 1752-1777. He was a soldier in the French and Indian War, and he was also a road overseer and a constable while living in Virginia.

Edmond married a woman named Mary, and they had children named Sarah, William, Edmond, Phoebe, Nancy, and Ruth. Sarah was married to Richard Roach in 1773, while the family lived in Frederick Co., VA.

Edmond lived in the Fort Pitt area of present day Pittsburg during the Revolutionary War. No military records have been found to show that Edmond served as a soldier during the war, though Edmond made a deposition in 1778 in which he stated that he had enlisted in the Pennsylvania militia. While living in the Fort Pitt area, Edmond served as a juryman, and he also appraised several estates.

Edmond arrived in Newberry County sometime after the Revolutionary War. He appeared on the 1790, 1800, and 1810 censuses for Newberry County. Edmond purchased land on Patterson's Creek from his son, William Lindsey, in 1795. Edmond's location on Patterson's Creek placed him close to the other Lindsey's who lived on Indian Creek and King's Creek. . . .

When he died, Edmond's estate appraisal showed he owned a tract of land of a little more than thirty acres. This was probably the land he lived on because the appraisal showed he owned no other land. Edmond's will stated that he had bought the land from James Campbell (who had received a grant for 38 acres on Patterson's Creek in 1785).

Edmond Lindsey's 1816 will named his wife, Mary, and children Nancy Hughes, Ruthe Pearson, William, Edmond, and Phoebe Ogilvie. Daughter Sarah Lindsey Roach may have already been deceased when Edmond wrote his will, as she was not mentioned in it. There may have been other children who predeceased Edmond.

Edmond Lindsay Jr. received two Fairfax grants on Long Marsh Run, one for 430 acres on 9 August 1764 and the other for 191 acres on 27 August 1766. Both tracts are on Clarke County, Virginia Highway 611, north of the 860-acre survey. . . . On 1 May 1765, Edmond and his wife Mary sold 370 acres of the 430-acre grant land to Samuel Mount for 500 pounds. . . . Edmond received another Fairfax grant for 407 acres on Opequon Creek on 20 December 1771. . . . On 6 April 1772, he and his wife Mary sold it for 80 pounds.

Moses Lindsey, son of James and Ruth Chapline Lindsey, was born in Frederick County, Virginia circa 1761-1762. Moses was named after his maternal grandfather, Moses Chapline. Moses Lindsey married a first cousin, Sibella Wells, who was the daughter of Abigail Lindsey (sister of James Lindsey). Sibella Wells Lindsey died, and Moses married Sarah Frost. Moses Lindsey moved to Williamson County, Tennessee circa 1810, where he died in 1852. In 1832, Moses applied for a pension for his service in the Revolutionary War. . . .

Moses Lindsey's Account Audited file listed the following periods of service:

1. 14 March to 15 May 1780: 61 days as a private footman in Capt. John Lindsey's company.

2. 17 July 1780 to 20 June 1781: 224 days as a private horseman in Capt. John Lindsey's company.

3. 21 June to 25 December 1781: 188 days as a private horseman in Capt. Thomas Lindsey's company.

Moses Lindsey gave a detailed description of his military service in his pension application. He stated that he was born in Frederick County, Virginia, and that he had entered the service in 1776 as a fifteen-year-old, while living in Newberry County. Moses reported that he had served under Captain Garret Smith (note by Susan: Gerrard Smith, married to Esther Lindsey, Moses Lindsey's aunt) and Lieutenant James Lindsey (note by Susan: father of Moses). During his first tour, Moses guarded the frontiers from Indian raids. In his next tour of duty, Moses stated that he had served under Captain John Lindsey, his uncle. During this tour of duty, Moses fought in the Battle of Stono Ferry. In his next tour of duty, Moses Lindsey stated that he entered the service in June or July of 1780, and that he served under General Sumter and Capt. John Lindsey. During this tour of duty, Moses was in the battles of Musgrove's Mills, Fishdam Ford, Blackstocks, Cowpens, the Siege of Ninety-Six, and his last battle was the celebrated Battle of Eutaw Springs (note by Susan: Sept. 8, 1781) . Moses stated that after this battle, he did not participate in any major battles, but was instead a scout for the area around Newberry County. Altogether, Moses Lindsey stated that he served 4 years and 6 months as a soldier.

James Lindsey, Sr. was the oldest son of John Lindsey, Sr. and his wife, Alce. James, who was born ca. 1731, first appeared in records in Frederick Co., VA in 1753, and he was married to his wife, Ruth Chapline, by 1761. James was probably born in Maryland or Frederick Co., VA.

James Lindsey and his family moved to Newberry Co. with his father, John, about 1768. James and his wife, Ruth, had children named Moses, Alce, Levica/Louisa, Sarah, Abigail, Ruth, and James.

James Lindsey was a soldier in the South Carolina militia in the Revolutionary War. It is said that James Lindsey and his brothers Thomas, John, and Samuel were present at the Battle of Stono Ferry, and that the four Lindsey brothers carried an American field piece off the battlefield that had been left behind during the fight.

LINDSEY, Capt. James Sr. (I14674)
 
25013 (1) Susan Grabek :

John Lindsey, Jr. was born ca. 1735-1740 in Frederick Co., VA, the son of John Lindsey, Sr. and his wife, Alce. John moved from Virginia with his parents and brothers, James, Thomas, and Samuel to Newberry Co., SC ca. 1770.

John Lindsey, Jr. served in the Revolutionary War as a captain and colonel. The pension records of many veterans name Col. John Lindsey as their commanding officer. Among the battles John fought in was the Battle of Stono Ferry in June of 1779. John's brothers James, Thomas, and Samuel were also present at the battle, and afterwards the four Lindsey brothers carried off an American field piece that had been left on the battlefield. . . .

Col. John Lindsey served as a Newberry Co. court justice from 1786 - 1790. He also served as a South Carolina legislator. John Lindsey lived in the Long Lane area near Kings and Indian Creeks in northern Newberry County. Col. Lindsey first received a grant for 200 acres of land in Newberry Co. in 1774. He amassed a large quantity of land, and he owned several slaves. One of Col. John Lindsey's tracts of land on the Saluda River became a source of controversy among his heirs. The litigation over the parcel has provided some valuable information about the family of John Lindsey.

According to family records, John Lindsey Jr. married Elizabeth Humphrey, and they had seven children: Alce, Caleb, Joshua, Humphrey, James, John, and Elizabeth. Of these children, Elizabeth and Joshua died in childhood. Col. John Lindsey's wife Elizabeth, may have married a second time. An 1817 deed that mentioned the dower of the widow of Col. John Lindsey indicates that Elizabeth Lindsey may have married a second time. 
LINDSEY, Col. John Jr. (I14675)
 
25014 (1) Susan Grabek :

Elce (Alce, Alice) probably married John Lindsey in Maryland. Their first son, James, was born ca. 1731, so John and Elce had probably married by 1730. Little is known about Elce. Her maiden name is unknown. Author George Leland Summer stated that Elce was a Crosson, but his information was incorrect. . . . Numerous descendants were named after Elce, who must have been a beloved mother and grandmother. Later spelling variations of the name included Alesey, Alsea and Ailsey.

It is not known when Elce Lindsey died. The last record I have of her is in 1789, when she purchased a crosscut saw at the estate sale of Charles King. John Lindsey willed his land and farm tools to his youngest son, Samuel, but Elce was to have possession of the land and all the personal property until she died. Samuel Lindsey sold the land he inherited in May of 1788. . . . Elce Lindsey was still living . . . when Samuel sold the land, so she must have been living with one of her grown children at the time. Elce did not appear on any census records in Newberry County as head of household. She may have died by the time the 1790 census was taken, or she may have been living in a household headed by another family member.

(2) Hedgecourt Watermill & Cottages, Copyright © 2010 Felbridge & District History Group & JustHost.com :

. . . [O]n 10th October 1674, Sarah Marchant, widow, took out a twenty-one year lease on the water corn mill and mill house called Hedgecourt Mill with all the implements and tools and eleven acres of land, including Upper Floodgate Platt containing five acres, Long Shaws containing six acres, and also Mill Land, 'late in the occupation of Joseph Marchant'. . . . This lease had an endorsement added in November 1688, from Sarah Marchant to her son John Marchant 'reserving her dwelling in the mill house, or if for her convenience she should leave the house, then John Marchant was to pay her £2 a year'. This endorsement suggests that Sarah Marchant operated the mill, or at least over-saw the mill operation between 1674 and 1688, and indeed, Sarah Marchant is listed as paying £20 rent per annum for 'the water corn mill and lands' in 1678. However, in 1688 the lease of 1674 was renewed and the water corn mill, mill house and two platts of land passed from Sarah Marchant to her son John Marchant. Sarah appears to have passed the mill operation over to her son John at this date but had not left the mill house, as the lease is endorsed that John Marchant is to pay her 40/- a year if she ceases living in the mill house thus ensuring that she had sufficient funds to pay for alternative accommodation if needed.

In May 1701, Joseph Marchant, probably the son of John, took out a counterpart lease from the trustees of Thomas Gage, on the water mill and mill house called Hedgecourt Mill this being a twenty-one year lease dated from 29th September 1700. However, the general accounts of Hedgecourt manor for 1701 record John Marchant paying £10 rent on the watermill suggesting that father and son were both working the watermill.

. . . Ann MARCHANT (1773-1845), who was the daughter of Ann BALCOMB [and James MARCHANT], inherited £1,000 [from her father]. Her husband Thomas TURNEY (1766-1843), Carpenter of The Green, Westerham, inherited £500 [from his father-in-law]. No record of the marriage of Thomas TURNEY and Ann MARCHANT has been found, it was only because both the TURNEY family and the MARCHANT family left Wills that the marriage between the two individuals was established. Wills are always an important source of information.

It was probably before . . . [1783] that Joseph MARCHANT's grandson, James MARCHANT (1740-1812) moved to Westerham, Kent. He married Ann BALCOMB on 17 October 1771 at St Peter & St Paul, Lingfield. He may have remained at Hedgecourt Mill for the early years of his marriage. Ann BALCOMB was to die prematurely, although the date of her death has not been established. What is known is that James MARCHANT married his second wife, Mary MARCHANT, by licence, on 20 January 1782 at St Mary the Virgin, Westerham. It is not known whether the bride and groom were related. MARCHANT is a French surname and it is particularly common in this part of Kent and nearby Surrey and Sussex. By 1782 James MARCHANT must have been living in Westerham between 1782 and 1804 as he served on the Grand Jury on seven occasions.

It is clear that the move to Westerham proved to be very profitable for James MARCHANT. His Will was proved on 3 March 1812. His wife Mary MARCHANT inherited £4,000 and the Malt House, two Cottages, a Barn, a Stable and all other Buildings. Other members of the family inherited, in total, a sum in excess of £4,000.

My ancestor, Ann MARCHANT (1773-1845), who was the daughter of Ann BALCOMB, inherited £1,000, Her husband Thomas TURNEY (1766-1843), Carpenter of The Green, Westerham, inherited £500. No record of the marriage of Thomas TURNEY and Ann MARCHANT has been found, it was only because both the TURNEY family and the MARCHANT family left Wills that the marriage between the two individuals was established. Wills are always an important source of information.

It is highly probable that the death of James MARCHANT brought an immediate end to the MARCHANT family's involvement with Water Milling in Westerham as both of James MARCHANT's sons died before their father. James MARCHANT [Jr.], Miller of Westerham, married Elizabeth FRANCIS on 4 February 1802; some of the FRANCIS family were Gentry. His Will was proved on 24 April 1806. Both his children were daughters, Elizabeth MARCHANT and Mary Ann MARCHANT; and the latter was to die in January 1821 aged 16 years. The other son [of Joseph MARCHANT, Sr.] was Joseph MARCHANT who died on 13 June 1807 aged only 20 years. There was, therefore, nobody left to run the business.

NOTE: I think it is fairly likely that the family originated in Withyham East Sussex. Then there is a sighting in Cowden, Kent. For several generations the family was at Hedgecourt Mill, Mill Lane, Felbridge. Their stay in Westerharn, Kent, was quite a short duration compared with the lengthy association with Felbridge, Surrey.

In October 1739, James Marchant, the son of Joseph, took out a sixty-year lease with William Clayton of Marden, for six acres of Hedgecourt Heath in Horne on which to build a windmill. This piece of land was a small promontory at the southeast corner of Hedgecourt Millpond, visible to the south from Hedgecourt watermill. As a point of interest, the millpond bay is the dividing line between the parishes of Godstone, in which the watermill was located and Horne in which the windmill was located, the distance between the two buildings a matter of a few hundred yards! Thus in 1739, Joseph and James Marchant were operating both the wind and water mill, although by 1742 the general accounts for the manor of Hedgecourt record that James Marchant was paying £25 per annum for the watermill at Hedgecourt, implying that Joseph, his father, was no longer milling and that James was probably operating both the wind and water mills at Hedgecourt.

In 1743, there is an unexecuted lease between William Gage and James Marchant for a 'Watermill and mill house newly erected and built [probably referring to the 1701 building work] called Hedgecourt Mill with stones and all the goods, implements and tools thereunto belonging and 1 iron crow, 1 toolchest and 2 jacks, and also that flow of water or pond known as Hedgecourt Mill Pond, and also 1 other pond lying and being between Myllwood and Cuttinglyes commonly called of the Myllwood Pond and all passage and current of water from Myllwood Pond unto the said Hodgecourt which equals ½ mile and all those 2 parcels of land called Upper Floodgate Platt and Little Floodgate Platt, 5 acres, 1 parcel called Long Shaws, 6 acres, in Godstone, Horne and Worth in tenure and occupation of James Marchant'. The lease states that James Marchant should maintain 'all roads, water, watercourses, bays, banks, floodgates, troughs and stews' and that he was entitled to 'all timber and timber-like trees, lops and tops other than the lops and tops of old pollards and all young tellowes, stores and standells of oak, ash, elm and beech and quarries of stone, iron mine and other metals now standing, growing or being'. He was not permitted to prevent Gage entry to remove any trees, mine or stone as required. James Marchant was also allowed to 'fell, cut down, grub up, hew, saw, workout, load, cole, dig, draw, convert and carry away as long as little hurt is done to the corn and mowing grass as may be'. '[Marchant] at his or their own proper costs and charges will and sufficiently repair and maintain, sustain, uphold, scoure, clense, fence and keep the said mill, mill house and buildings and all the tools, implements and materials thereunto belonging and all the bays, gates, ground gutts, pen stocks, floodgates, troughs, bridges, millstones, mill wheels and other wheel coggs, binns and sluices and every matter and thing pertaining to the said mill or mills. Excepting the Upper Pond Bay to be kept by the said Gage in good repair. And the said Iron Crow, Toll Chest and 2 Jacks are to be surrendered back to Gage at the end of the term'.

A few changes have been made to this lease compared to previous leases taken out on the watermill and mill house at Hedgecourt. Firstly, Myllwood Pond (Furnace Lake) and the stream leading from it to Hedgecourt Millpond have been incorporated into the lease. James Marchant is now also made responsible for the maintenance of 'roads', which have not featured in previous leases for the watermill. He is also entitled to some of the timber with permission to turn it into charcoal, a once essential fuel for the local iron industry. The incorporation of Myllwood Pond and permission to make charcoal reflects the decline in the local iron industry, in particular Warren furnace, the blast furnace, which had required the water from Myllwood Pond for its sustained operation. Although the responsibility of Myllwood Pond had passed to James Marchant, William Gage still undertook to maintain the 'Upper Pond Bay', the bay holding Myllwood Pond. It is also interesting to note that 'buildings' appear amongst the list of property and items James Marchant was responsible to 'repair and maintain', possibly implying that outbuildings had been built since 1723, the date of the previous lease.

In October 1745, Edward Evelyn acquired the manor of Hedgecourt after the death of William Gage in 1744, at the cost of £8,260, and in 1747, there is a lease between Sir Francis Pool and Sir John Evelyn that refers to the' mill and Mill Land in the occupation of James Marchant with eleven acres in Godstone and several ponds of water called Furnace Pond and Mill Pond in Horne, Godstone and Worth, and Forge Pond in Godstone'. This confirms that James Marchant was still the miller at Hedgecourt and that the manor of Hedgecourt had passed from the Gage family to the Evelyn family who were to hold the manor until 1855. . . .

The mid to late 1700's was a busy period for millers in Britain with the increase of productivity in farming due to revolutionary ideas that had spread from the continent, namely crop rotation. The Evelyn estate was no different and with nearly half its total acreage turned over to farming James Marchant must have been kept very busy at his mills. . . .

James Marchant was still the miller of Hedgecourt in 1773, as at this date he was bequeathed 'all goods and furniture' by his brother Benjamin Marchant, a cooper and innkeeper of Cheam in Surrey. However, it is difficult to determine when James Marchant ceased the occupation of the watermill and mill house at Hedgecourt as the land tax records from between 1780 and 1801 lists only the current lord of the manor as paying the land tax on the mill. What is apparent is that in 1783, John Simmons took over the 1739 indenture on the windmill on Hedgecourt Heath suggesting that James Marchant had at least ceased milling from the windmill and possibly the watermill as well. It is also known that James Marchant was unlikely to have been succeeded by his son James at the watermill and mill house at Hedgecourt because James Marchant junior is recorded as being the miller of Westerham in Surrey in 1771, being joined by his son James until his early death in 1805, and remaining in Westerham until his own death some time between 1811 and 1812.

Battle, Elisha

9 Jan. 1723-6 Mar. 1799

Elisha Battle, planter, revolutionary patriot, and state legislator, was born in Nansemond County, Va. He was the fifth child and third son of William and Sarah Hunter Battle. Earlier paternal and maternal ancestors had emigrated from Yorkshire, England, in the mid-seventeenth century, his grandfather, John Battle, settling on a two-hundred-acre estate on the west bank of Nansemond River in Nansemond County, Va. In 1663 this same John Battle obtained a royal patent for 640 acres of land on Pasquotank River in North Carolina. Here Elisha Battle's father, William, was born in 1682. In 1690, upon the death of his father, William returned to Nansemond County, where he continued to reside until his death in 1749.

By deed of record dated 17 Aug. 1747, Elisha Battle purchased four hundred acres on the north side of Tar River, in Edgecombe County, from Samuel Holliman. This purchase formed the nucleus of Cool Spring Plantation, near the present town limits of Rocky Mount, to which Battle moved with his family in late 1747 or early 1748. Subsequent purchases made Battle a large and prosperous landholder. He soon gained a reputation as a man of honest conviction, sound judgment, and considerable native ability.

According to an early biographer, Battle was appointed justice of the peace in about 1756, retaining this position until the infirmities of old age forced him to relinquish it in 1795. By 1759 he was serving as a justice for Edgecombe county court (later the inferior court of pleas and quarter sessions). He was one of five commissioners appointed in 1760 to "found and lay out" the town of Tarboro.

The same early biographer indicates that Battle was elected to represent Edgecombe in the colonial House of Commons as early as 1771, though his first recorded appearance there is during the assembly that convened in New Bern, 4-21 Dec. 1773. With the threat of impending warfare, Battle was named chairman of Edgecombe's committee of safety (1774-75). He also represented his county in the provincial congresses that met in Halifax in April 1776 and in November 1776.

With the establishment of an independent state government, Elisha Battle was elected to represent Edgecombe County in the state senate, 1777-81, 1783, and 1785-87. He served as chairman of the committee of the whole during much of the session of the constitutional convention, convened in Hillsborough in July 1788. With the majority of the delegates, Battle held that it would be too dangerous to adopt the proposed federal constitution without amendments to reserve and secure certain rights to the individual states. Accordingly, he voted to postpone adoption until such amendments were effected.

In 1742, Battle married Elizabeth Sumner, a first cousin to Brigadier General Jethro Sumner, who served in the Continental Army under Washington. To their union were born eight children: Sarah, who married Jacob Hilliard and, afterward, Henry Horn; John, who married Frances Davis; Elizabeth, who married Josiah Crudup, Jr.; Elisha, who married Sarah Bunn; William, who married Charity Horn; Dempsey, who married Jane Andrews; Jacob, who married Penelope Edwards; and Jethro, who married Martha Lane.

Battle united with the Falls of Tar River Baptist Church in 1764, attaining prominence in the affairs of his local congregation and the larger denomination. He served as a deacon and as a clerk at Falls of Tar River. He was also instrumental in the organization of the Kehukee Baptist Association in 1769, serving that body occasionally as moderator and as clerk. He was buried on the family plantation.

(2) Samuel HENRY was a fellow passenger of James GILCHRIST, the 2nd great-grandfather of the compiler's wife, on the ship Meridian from Belfast, Ireland [now Northern Ireland] to Baltimore, MD in 1821. The following information regarding Samuel HENRY is set forth in Davidson, Elizabeth M., Annals of Old Wilkinsburg and Vicinity, Wilkinsburg, PA: Group for Historical Research, 1940, pp. 222-224:

SAMUEL HENRY

SAMUEL HENRY came to Wilkinsburg in 1849. We know he had a grocery store in what we now call the Webster Avenue district of Pittsburgh, but we do not know just when he gave up weaving as a trade. The Pittsburgh directory of 1839 lists him as a grocer on Coal Lane above O'Hara Street.

He continued to conduct a grocery store in Wilkinsburg in the lower part or half cellar part of the house, which, like many houses in the Pittsburgh district today, was set in the side of a hill. In the odd moments of the day he could cultivate the vegetable and flower gardens and look after the raspberry and currant bushes and the fruit trees. Of course, there was a grape arbor just outside the doorway; and in the garden the coral or trumpet honeysuckle, ribbon grass, and trumpet vines, and an Osage orange hedge along the boundary line. We transplanted many of the plants from my grandfather's garden and for many years enjoyed the beauty of the single petal or pasture-roses.

Samuel Henry's father and son, each called Samuel Henry, died when rather young, the former in Slavenagh, County Antrim, Ireland and the latter in Havana, Cuba, while helping to install a lighting system for the city streets. The father of Samuel Henry had kept a diary, which we treasure highly, and so it was only natural that his son should also keep a diary. From the records we find he "sold his father's farm August 3, 1820 to Thos. Simpson, auctioned our crops, stock, farming utensils and household furniture on 6th of Sept. following, intending to go to America. On the first day of Novr. following, my wife got her left arm broken above the wrist and was attended by Dr. McNeil, Portlenone, who set it." According to the diary they did not leave their father-in-law's for America until Thursday morning, May 10th, 1821. "We slept two nights in Belfast and went on board of the ship Meridian on Saturday 12th for Baltimore, paying 18 guineas passage money for my wife and two children." As the Sea Journal gives a glimpse of the hardships encountered on board ship, we shall select a few of the items taken from the diary. "The ship Meridian 144 feet in length and advertised to carry 700 tons, - cargo, salt, whiskey, linen cloth, - steerage passengers 56, - cabin passengers 7, 9 sailors, a cook and steward, Captain John Staples and Siery and Erskine mates. The regulations for the steerage passengers - the fire is to be made on at 8 o'clock and to continue till ½ past 9, forenoon, and then it is to be made on at 4 in the afternoon and be put out at ½ past 5, so that all the cooking is to be made in 1 hour and a half, morning and evening. It is also requested that all steerage passengers must get their water by 6 in the morning." Having started on the 12th of May we note from the diary that they cleared out to the ocean from Cape Clear on Saturday, the 19th, the last day they saw Ireland. They overtook the Primrose from Waterford for Quebec, passed the Tuscarora from Philadelphia for Liverpool and met the Jane of Aberdeen, freighted with sugar and rum from the West Indies for London. Due to a severe storm they were driven southwest 1062 miles so that they were 47 days crossing the ocean, and when they reached the Chesapeake Bay they could well say, "the pilot came on board to our great satisfaction." "Monday, 25 June, we cast anchor at the foot of the Chesapeake Bay for want of wind and the tide being against us. Thursday 28 of June, 1821, in the afternoon we first set foot on Columbus land, City of Baltimore."

During the eleven months spent in Baltimore, Samuel Henry was busy weaving, for he states that he sold eleven linen shirts. Thursday, 9th of May, 1822, they left Baltimore for Pittsburgh, "paying $2 per hundred for hauling to John Lang, Scotchman. We were civily used on the way both by the wagoners and those with whom we lodged. We had good weather all the time. We had tolerable good health except a spell that I had. We paid 12 cents a night for our bed. We arrived in Pittsburgh on Wednesday 22nd of May, 1822, in the afternoon. We met with a kind reception with friends. We stopped near 5 months in Smithfield St. in house of Mr. Robinson at $1.25 per month of rent and Oct. 14th, 1822 we moved to Mr. Arthurs and pay $2 per month rent and am employed at weaving satinet and broadcloth for him."

Erasmus Wilson's "History of Pittsburgh" has several references relative to the Arthurs Factory. Page 208 - "Arthurs and Murphy, partners in the fulling business, dissolved in August, 1815 and James Arthurs continued alone." Page 229 - "James Arthurs and Sons, Steam Cotton Factory on Strawberry, near Cherry Alley, contained in 1825, one throatle of 120 spindles, one mule of 168 spindles and was principally employed in the manufacture of fine yarns. 12 hands employed in the cotton factory. Adjoining was the woolen factory owned by them, where a large country business was done and cassinets were made."

Samuel Henry was a member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Wilkinsburg. Born August 16, 1787, and died June 1871. He is buried in Allegheny Cemetery, near the Butler Street entrance.

(3) A household headed by Samuel Henry is listed in the 1830 census of Pitt Township, Allegheny County, PA.

Listed in Samuel's household are 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white male between 40 and 50 years of age; 1 free white female under 5 years of age; 2 free white females between 5 and 10 years of age; and 1 free white female between 30 and 40 years of age.

Assuming that Samuel is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, he would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that Samuel's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, she would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that the other persons in Samuel's household are children of Samuel and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 1 son (which son would have been born between 1815 and 1820, according to the 1830 census) and 3 daughters (1 of which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, and 2 of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1830 census).

(4) A household headed by Samuel Henry is listed in the 1840 census of Pitt Township, Allegheny County, PA.

Listed in Samuel's household are 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; 2 free white females between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 50 and 60 years of age.

Since only 1 male is listed in Samuel's household in the 1840 census, he must be that male. He was born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1840 census.

Assuming that Samuel's wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, she would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1840 census.

Assuming that the other persons in Samuel's household are children of Samuel and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 3 daughters (1 of which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, and 2 of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1840 census).

(5) A household headed by Samuel Henry is listed in the 1850 census of Wilkins Township, Allegheny County, PA.

Samuel is listed in the 1850 census as a merchant who was then 63 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1787. According to the 1850 census, he was born in Ireland.

Listed with Samuel is his wife, Elenor, who was then 63 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1787. According to the 1850 census, she was born in Ireland.

Also listed with Samuel is his daughter, Elisa A., who was then 27 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1823. According to the 1850 census, she was born in PA.

(6) A household headed by Sam HENRY is listed in the 1860 census of Wilkins Township, Allegheny County, PA.

Sam is listed in the 1860 census as a shoe maker who was then 72 years of age; therefore, according to the 1860 census, he was born in about 1788. According to the 1860 census, he was born in PA.

Listed with Sam is his wife, Ellen, who was then 72 years of age; therefore, according to the 1860 census, she was born in about 1788. According to the 1860 census, she was born in PA.

Also listed with Sam is his daughter, Eliza A., who was then 28 years of age; therefore, according to the 1860 census, she was born in about 1932. According to the 1860 census, she was born in PA.

(7) A household headed by Samuel HENRY is listed in the 1870 census of Wilkins Township, Allegheny County, PA.

Samuel is listed in the 1870 census as a retired farmer who was then 82 years of age; therefore, according to the 1870 census, he was born in about 1788. According to the 1870 census, he was born in Ireland.
