CYCLONE NEAR WINTERVILLE.
_____

Trees, Fences and Crops Destroyed - Corn Shucked by the Wind
_____

(From our Special Correspondent.)

A fearful cyclone swept through the country about a half mile west of Winterville, Thursday afternoon, scattering fences and trees in its track and seriously damaging growing crops. The storm traveled in a northwesterly course, turning rapidly as it went. It could be distinctly seen from this place, and many of our citizens were alarmed lest it should come directly over the town; but fortunately it did not. It passed just above Dr. Murrah's residence, so near the house that it swept the chairs from the piazza, took the roof from Hodges' shop, blew down a corner of Mr. Henry Meyer's garden, and then tore up the fencing of Mr. McAlpin for nearly a mile.

Several of our farmers had their fences blown down, and wherever the storm passed through a cotton field, it was literally stripped of bolls. Corn was blown from the stalk, and in places it was shucked and the ears carried some distance from the field. Messrs. G W Hancock, J T Brittian, R Towns, Henry Meyer, J A Suddeth, R M McAlpin and John Winter were all more or less injured, and doubtless many others not yet heard from. The storm varied in width from 25 to 200 yards and constantly changed its direction. Further particulars will be given in the next.

BEPPO.

POISONOUS WHISKEY
_____

MAKES A WIDOW AND THREE ORPHANS IN OUR COUNTY.
_____

It Lays the Strong Man Low - Horrible Agony - The Story of the Sale of a Coffin Yesterday - A Political Carmagnole Ends in Death.

The BANNER-WATCHMAN has advocated, urged and begged for a primary election, or some similar step that would prevent a disgraceful scramble for office, but without avail. We appealed to the people and the candidates in the name of right, of democracy, of decency, but were unheeded. To have a "scrub race" without the corrupting use of money and liquor in Clarke county would be to accomplish an impossibility. Failing in our object to get a nomination, our paper refrained from taking any hand in a contest where money and whisky overbalanced an honest man's vote, and left the political cauldron to boil. Well, it did boil, and to an extent never before known in the corrupt political history of Clarke county. From what we can learn, no one candidate was more to blame than another. They had a pride and an ambition to win, the buying of votes had become legalized by long practice, and the amount expended on this rapacious and venal horde of suffrage-barterers was only limited by the length of one's purse. Hence we way that for the horrible tragedy we are about to report, let the man that is without sin cast the first stone. And neither have we any room for saying that any of the gentlemen offering for place at the hands of the voters gave this liquor; but that is being distributed every one knows.

Yesterday morning it reported on the streets that Mr. G. W. Hancock, a white man once in the employ of Mr. McGinty in this city, but this year lives on a farm belonging to that gentleman in Buck Branch district, some 3?? miles from Athens, had poisoned himself by taking a dose of "Rough on Rats." The BANNER-WATCHMAN at once started out in quest of authentic information. We were directed to Mr. W. H. Buchanan, an old geltleman [sic] who lived near Mr. Hancock, and who was buying a coffin for the deceased of Edge, Dorsey & Co.

"Yes," replied Mr. Buchanan, in answer to our question, "George Hancock is dead, for I closed his eyes myself this morning at 1 o'clock, when he drew his last breath, It was a mistake about his killing himself with rat poison, but that he was poisoned I have not the slightest doubt, and it was the vile, adulterated liquor now being distributed free to the voters, that did the horrible work. And Hancock, too, is not the only victim, for I hear of other men, both white and black, who are now suffering from this poison, that they imbibed with enthusiasm at the meetings they are holding over the county. On Tuesday night last there was one of these meetings held at a negro's house in Buck Branch district, and George Hancock attended it. I passed by and looked on at the crowd, but did not enter it. I suppose there were some 300 or 400 negroes present, with a sprinkling of whites. I did not see any whisky given out myself, but learn that it was freely circulated. In fact, before I left I saw the effects of it. It seems that Hancock was drinking pretty freely, and his friends tried to get him to hold up, but he refused. At last he got down, and was carried that night to the house of his father, who you know is an honest and clever old gentleman. The next morning Hancock went home, but complained to his wife of suffering a great deal.

He said he did not feel right. He only took three drinks of liquor that day. I do not know whether he had it at home or brought it from that meeting. Toward noon he began to get rapidly worse, and was taken with violent spells of vomiting. I was sent for and reached him about five o'clock. A doctor had been ordered but he failed to come, I administered weak milk punches and like mild remedies, and they stopped the vomiting. But his suffering was intense. In fact, I never saw a man endure such agony. He would scream and writhe in bed, and said that he felt like his insides were being torn out and burned up. In the intervals of partial relief Hancock would affirm that he had been poisoned by the liquor he drank, and then most pittifully [sic] pray for forgivenesss [sic]. I never witnessed such a horrible scene, and hope never to look upon the like again. At 9 o'clock he dropped into an uneasy slumber, but woke about 12 and calling his wife to him, told her that he was dying - that he was all torn to pieces with the poison taken into his system with the liquor, and nothing could do him any good. I tried to cheer and encourage him, but to no avail. He sank rapidly, and at 1 o'clock quietly passed away. The last hour he spent in supplication for forgiveness, and repeatedly begged, 'Oh, God, forgive me, a poor sinner!' 'Oh, my God, have mercy on me,' and similar appeals. George Hancock leaves a wife and three children, who were dependent on his daily labor for their bread. He was a stout, healthy man, and I am honestly convinced that he was poisoned by vile liquor."

We give this story just as Mr. Buchanan related it to us, and hope that the death of poor George Hancock will arrouse [sic] our people to the importance of nominating candidates for office, and not give license to such campaigns as ended so sadly.

The Coroner decided not to hold an inquest, as it was an established fact that if Hancock was really poisoned, it was unintentionally administered by his own hand. The matter created a great deal of talk yesterday. Rev. Dr. Lane says he will deliver a sermon with this matject [sic] for his text, and thinks it is a subject that the pulpit, as well as the press, should handle. We learn that the meeting was not called in the interest of any one candidate, but was gotten up by the negroes in the Buck Branch district, in order to "bleed" the candidates of free liquor.

In this shameless use of liquor and money we do not blame so much the poor wretches that accept the bribes, or even the candidates who put it out, as we do the Democracy of Clarke county for their cowardice in failing to make a nomination. It is natural for a man to buy votes when his ambition or self-interest is at stake, and there are also voters who cannot withstand temptation; but we do say shame on a party that has not the backbone to place a ticket in the field and rely on its strength and the justice of its cause to elect it.

NOTES:

Per the Belmont County History, Philip AULT was the grandson of German immigrant, Valentine ALT, who came to America in 1738. Philip and Elizabeth LAU ALT's first three children were born in York County, PA. In 1802, they moved to Belmont county, OH where they remained until death. They had 15 children, including John F. AULT, the father of compiler's great uncle, John AULT, husband of Mary GILCHRIST. The family lived in Richland Township, section 2 in Belmont County. After Philip's death, his youngest son, Joseph, took over the farm and lived there until his death in 1891. The farm remained in the family until 1946.

"Philip and his wife Elizabeth are buried in Old Dutch Cemetery on his farm. It is located ½ mile off County Road 5 about 1 mile southwest of the intersection with State Route 9".

The article was submitted to th Belmont History by Dorothy H. WIG of North
Canton, OH, a descendent of Philip AULT.

* * *

The Peattie History reports that Philip AULT, the great grandfather of Joseph F. AULT, was born in Manhattan, NY. This source says that the AULT family originated in SAXONY.."and the original American ancestor probably landed at New York. . . . Removing to Pennsylvania, (Philip) located at Valley Forge . . . son, Frederick AULT, was born at Valley Forge in 1800, and in 1812 the family emigrated to Belmont County, OH. . . ."

Considering the geography involved, compiler tends to consider the Belmont County History the most likely to be accurate. This account was written by a direct descendent of Philip which also adds to the consideration.

* * *

Mrs. Hatcher writes that she has located marriage records for Philip AULT and Elizabeth LAU in 1790. This was included among IGI records and further recorded Philip's birth in York County, PA as well as his death in Belmont County, OH in 1849.

The "Family Tree Maker's Census Index" for 1830 shows a Philip AULT enumerated in Richland Township, Belmont County, OH. No other data appear in this index.

HENRY OLIVER HEDGCOXE

One of the most interesting and certainly the most controversial of the pioneers of Collin County was Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe. His parents, John Oliver and Mary Ann Bool Hedgcoxe, were both born in Sussex County, England, he on June 26, 1764, and she on August 3, 1763. Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe was born in London in 1800 and came to America with his parents, leaving London on the ship George Washington on May 27, 1819, and landing at Baltimore sixty-two days later. During the same year they settled in Clark County, Indiana, where both parents died and were buried.

Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe married twice. His first wife was Elizabeth Parks but the name of his second wife could not be ascertained. The children of Henry Oliver and Elizabeth Hedgcoxe were Henry Oliver II, John Oliver, Robert Farsey (Foss), Harriett, Mary Ann, Henrietta Maria, and Harrison Goodwin. There were also three children by his second wife: William Henry, Felix Goodwin, and Humphrey Marshall.

Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe II, born in Indiana on June 19, 1823, married three times. His first wife was Ophelia Jane Dorsey, whom he married in 1845 in Jeffersonville, Indiana. In 1850 he married Louisa Jane Atkinson, who died in 1855. On May 1, 1856, he married Laura Seay Atkinson, a relative of his second wife. Of their three children only one, Otto, reached maturity. Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe II died on October 8, 1872, and his wife on December 22, 1874. Both were buried in Rowlett Creek cemetery. Mrs. Laura Hedgcoxe Cahoon, daughter of Otto, was living in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1956.

John Oliver Hedgcoxe, who was born in Indiana on January 26, 1825, was married twice, first to Shelby Ann Atkinson and then to Abbie O. Simpson. His second wife died in 1894 and he on April 20, 1909. Both were buried in Rowlett Creek cemetery. He had one child, J. Grundy, by his first wife and none by his second.

Robert Farsey Hedgcoxe was married in 1857 to Julia Ann James in Collin County. He died in November, 1897, and she on April 13, 1913. Both were buried in Pecan Grove cemetery at McKinney. Their children were Mrs. Henrietta Hedgcoxe Quisenberry, Robert Edward, Mrs. Mary Isabel Perkins, Henry Oliver, Mrs. Cora Alice Yarbrough, James Walter, Mrs. Harriett Bush Hagy, Lee Roy, Myrtle Hedgcoxe Bush, Wilbur Leland, and William McMurray. So far as is known Mrs. Hagy is the only one of these children living in 1957. She resides with her daughter, Miss Geraldine Hagy, on the farm on which the Muncey family was massacred by Indians in 1841. . . . Their home is on the right side of Rowlett Creek and about 500 yards below the bridge on United States Highway 75.

Robert Farsey Hedgcoxe and wife also reared their granddaughter, Miss Etta Quisenberry, who is a former teacher and now lives in Allen. She spent much time collecting this information on the Hedgcoxe family, which she made available to the writers.

Harriett Hedgcoxe, daughter of Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe I, married twice, the first time to Jasper Griffing in Indiana. They had one daughter, Harriett. After the death of her husband, Mrs. Harriett Griffing came to Texas with her father. Later she married Oliver Bush, who had several children by his first wife, then deceased. Harriett and Oliver had one son, O. H. Bush, who was born on September 7, 1862, and died on September 30, 1914. Harriett died on March 15, 1918, and she, her husband, and her son were all buried in Rowlett Creek cemetery.

Mary Ann Hedgcoxe married Felix Goodwin. Their children were Felix G., Leroy M., Mrs. Ben Herndon, Mrs. Fannie Gillespie, Oliver, and John. Mary Ann died on March 14, 1880, and was also buried in Rowlett Creek cemetery.

Henrietta Maria Hedgcoxe married John Stacy. To this union were born five children: Jasper, Arthur, Mrs. Iza Boggs, Mrs. Henrietta Vaughn, and Dr. Henry Stacy.

Harrison Goodwin Hedgcoxe, who was never married, died in Coleman County on August 31, 1911, and was buried in Rowlett Creek cemetery.

Information on the three children of Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe I by his second wife could not be obtained.

In 1843 Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe I came to Collin County as the agent for the stockholders of Peters Colony, or the Texas Emigration and Land Company. He proved to be a diligent and efficient representative of the company but his activities precipitated a controversy with land locators, speculators, and some colonists. . . . Many of his descendants now reside in Collin County. In addition to those already mentioned, Mrs. Wilbur Leland Hedgcoxe lives in Allen; Pat Garner Hedgcoxe, her son, is a graduate student in the University of Texas, and his brother, John Leland, lives on their old home place near the Bethany community, northwest of Plano.

Miss Etta Quisenberry of Allen has a letter written by Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe to one of his daughters in Collin County, dated October 21, 1857; she also had one of his business cards.

After supervising the surveying of land and the issuing of titles in Peters Colony, Hedgcoxe moved to Austin sometime before 1857 where he died on June 14, 1860, and was buried in block 10 in Oakwood cemetery.

(2) A household headed by Henry HEDGECOCK is listed in the 1830 census of Charlestown, Clark County, IN.

Listed in Henry's household are 2 free white males under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 2 free white females under 5 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

Assuming that Henry is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that Henry's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

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

25010 (1) Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD, Gateway Press, 1983, p. 187:

Shortly after the Revolutionary War, Nicholas Starnes moved from southwest Virginia to the western side of the Tennessee Valley, between Knoxville and Chattanooga, to Rhea County, Tennessee. Nothing further is known of him until he was married to Barbara Winters by Daniel Rice, Justice of the Peace, on October 10, 1816. Nicholas was then sixty-one years old. Barbara was in her mid twenties to early thirties, suggesting this was a second marriage for old Nicholas. (The DAR lists her birth as 1784; death, 1861.) A pension claim statement of March, 1860 approximates her birth as late as 1793.

They moved from Rhea County, Tennessee, about five or six years after their marriage, to Blount County, Alabama. While living in Alabama, Nicholas made a pension claim for his services under the Act of 1832 and received $20 per annum. This incidence has caused Nicholas to be listed as a Revolutionary War soldier from Alabama and accounts for his name being included on the momument at the state capitol. Before Nicholas' death, on or about May 22, 1835, he and Barbara had moved to McNairy County, Tennessee. He had, in spite of ill health and aged faculties, returned to Alabama on some business he wanted to take care of and died in Talladega County.

Children of this marriage were: (DAR)

[i] Nancy m. Elisha Bradshaw

[ii] Sarah m. (1) John Beeheers (2) Isaac Ellis

[iii] George

[iv] Margaret m. John Cowan

Barbara, some years after Nicholas' death, married John Hibbins on January 25, 1847 in Conway County, Arkansas.

(2) A household headed by a Barbara STARNES is listed in the 1830 census of McNairy County, TN. The compiler does not know whether this Barbara STARNES was the same person as the wife of Nicholas STARNES. However, if so, she would have resided in McNairy County, TN about 5 years before the May 22, 1835 mentioned in Note (1) above.

Listed in Barbara's household are 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

Assuming that Barbara is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

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

If this Barbara STARNS was the same person as the wife of Nicholas STARNES, and if the children listed in Barbara's household in the 1830 census were the children of Nicholas and Barbara (WINTERS) STARNES, then this list of children does not match the list of their generally recognized children who were born before the 1830 census, namely:

[i] Nancy, born November 1816 in Rhea County, TN.

[ii] Margaret, born 5 June 1817 in Rhea County, TN.

[iii] George, born 5 October 1821 in Rhea County, TN.

(3) Sarah STARNES, a daughter of Nicholas STARNES and Barbara (WINTERS) (STARNES) was born after the 1830 census, on 6 March 1833, in McNairy County, TN.

(4) A household headed by Barbary STERNS is listed in the 1840 census of Harain Township, Conway County, AR. [Her surname is listed as STENS in the index to the 1840 census.]

Listed in Barbary's household are 1 free white males between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white females between 5 and 10 years of age; and 1 free white females between 40 and 50 years of age. Also listed in Barbary's household are 3 slaves.

Assuming that Barbary is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, she would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1840 census.

Assuming that the other free white persons in Barbary's household are children of Barbary and/or her husband, those children would have consisted of 1 son (which son would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1840 census) and 1 daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census).

Adam Starnes, the son of Samuel of Washington County, Va., was the second member of the family to enlist [in the War of 1812]. On December 10, 1812 he joined the Tennessee Militia under Andrew Jackson's command in Sumner County, Tennessee.

During 1813 a new theatre of operations opened in the South. Andrew Jackson, an ardent expansionist and commander of the Tennessee Militia, wrote the Secretary of War that he would "rejoice at the opportunity of placing the American eagle on the ramparts of Mobile, Pensacola, and Fort St. Augustine." For this purpose Tennessee had raised a force of 20,000 men to be under Jackson's command. Congress, after much debate, approved an expedition only into that part of the gulf coast in dispute between the United States and Spain, and refused to entrust the venture to the Tennesseans. Just before he went north to take part in the Montreal expedition, General Wilkinson led his regulars into the disputed part of West Florida and, without meeting any resistance, occupied Mobile while the Tennessee army was left cooling its heels in Natchez, "Natchez Country," according to Adam.

An Indian uprising, in the part of the Mississippi Territory soon to become Alabama, saved General Jackson's military career. Inspired by the Shawnee chief, Tecumseh's earlier successes in the North, the Creek Indians took to the warpath in the summer of 1813 with a series of outrages culminating in August in the massacre of more than 500 men, women and children at Fort Mims on the Alabama River, some forty-five miles north of Mobile. Jackson, with characteristic energy, reassembled his army, which had been dismissed after Congress rejected its services for an attack on Flordia [sic], and moved into the Mississippi Territory.

Adam was in Captain Abraham Bledsoe's Company of Col. William Bradley's 1st Regiment of Sumner County Militia. The early Tennessee Militia organizations were based on the militia laws of the state of North Carolina. Under these laws each county had a separate regiment of militia divided into captain's companies, each regiment designated by the name of its county. From the time of the earliest regiment until 1811 under the state's numerical system, there was only one regiment in each county in the state with the exception of the 15th Regiment of Tennessee Militia.

Jackson's own energy added to his problems, for he completely outran his primitive supply system and dangerously extended his line of communications. The hardships of the campaign and one near defeat at the hands of the Indians destroyed any enthusiasm the militia might have had for continuing in service. Jackson was compelled to entrench at Fort Strother on the Coosa River and remain there for several months until the arrival of a regiment of the regular army gave him the means to deal with the mutinous militia. At the end of March, 1814 he decided that he had sufficient strength for a decisive blow against the Indians who had gathered a force of about 900 warriors and many women and children in a fortified camp at the Horseshoe Bend of the Tallapoosa River. Jackson had about 2,000 militia and volunteers, nearly 600 regulars, several hundred friendly Indians, and a few pieces of artillery.

The attack was completely successful. A bayonet charge, led by the regulars, routed the Indians who were ruthlessly hunted down and all but a hundred or so of the warriors were killed. "I lament that two or three women and children were killed by accident," Jackson later reported. The remaining hostile tribes fled into Spanish territory. As one result of the campaign, Jackson was appointed a major general in the regular army. The campaign against the Creeks had no other effect on the outcome of the war, but, for that matter, neither had any of the campaigns in the North up to this point.

Adam received a discharge for his services against the Creeks signed, "A. Jackson, Maj. Gen." Shortly after his return to Sumner County from his first tour of duty, he married Jane Brandon on July 22, 1813; he was then twenty-four or five years of age. In late September of that year Adam did a tour of militia duty and was discharged in Nashville on December 28, 1813. Adam died on December 11, 1844.

25013 (1) Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD, Gateway Press, 1983, pp. 213-214:

On September 14, 1813 William Starnes, born the son of Samuel on November 15, 1793, enlisted in a company of Washington County, Virginia Militia commanded by Capt. James Meeks, a brother of his aunt, Hannah Starnes. This company was in the 5th Regiment of Washington County Militia of Col. Francis Preston and held musters at a place called Blue Ball before being sent to the defenses of Norfolk.

Pvt. William Starnes' cousin, Joseph, evidently re-enlisted since he continued on active duty in Norfolk. Military action in the course of the war in late 1813 and early 1814 reached a sort of lull. William was discharged at the Peach Orchard in Norfolk on March 10, 1814 and Joseph at Briggs' Point the following day. The two cousins made their way back westward across Virginia to their homes in Washington and Russell Counties along crude trails now approximated by U.S. Route 58.

Lack of transportation was a major problem. The United States was fighting a war on widely separated fronts that required moving supplies through a wilderness where roads had to be built for wagons and packhorses. For this reason, ammunition and clothing supplies proved inadequate. Winter found the troops without blankets, inadequately housed, and without forage for their horses. Most important, the subsistence supply failed so completely that field commanders found it necessary to take local goods procurement virtually into their own hands.

William again entered service as a substitute for one James Marshall in a company of Washington County "Light Horse" Cavalry in the 6th Brigade, Virginia Militia under Captain James Orr and Lieutenant James Bailey on February 12, 1815. The Treaty of Ghent had been signed on Christmas Eve, but communications were slow and militia preparedness continued in southwest Virginia under a state of war.

William was discharged at Seven-Mile Ford on March 15, 1815. Four years later he married Jane Crockett, a sister of the legendary Davey Crockett, in Sullivan County, Tennessee. He was the last Starnes to leave Washington County, Virginia, the place of the family's 1769 settlement. In the late autumn or early winter of 1820 he moved to east Tennessee where several of his kin were already living. William began using the "Stearns" spelling of the surname, as has been the case in Kentucky among some branches of the Starnes family of Virginia.

Eventually, about 1830, William moved to Union County, Indiana where he was the postmaster in Billingsville for many years. A devout Methodist and good public speaker, he exhorted the sinners to mend their ways until his death there on February 28, 1858.

The children of William and Jane Crockett Stearns (whose marriage record was destroyed when the Blountville, Tennessee Courthouse burned during a Civil War action there on September 22, 1863) were:

[i] Dr. Crockett Stearns, b. ca. 1819, d. 1889 in Brookville, Indiana (practiced medicine in California).

[ii] Elizabeth Stearns, b. ca. 1821, m. Mr. Baker [?], a farmer, d. 1892 in Union County, Indiana.

[iii] John H. Stearns, b. ca. 1823, lived in the Indianapolis area.

[iv] Sarah C. Stearns, b. ca. 1826, m. John S. Ewing (wounded at the Battle of Chickamauga during the Civil War), d. 1881.

WILLIAM STEARNS . . . , b. about 1795, son of Samuel and Eliza (Fletcher) Stearns of Va.; born in Gra[i]nger Co., Tennessee. He served in the War of 1812, and distinguished himself as a brave, honorable soldier; md. about 1815, Jane Crockett, sister of Col. David Crockett. About 1830, they removed to Union Co., Ind., and he was Postmaster at Billingsville for many years; a Methodist exhorter and fine speaker; four children:

[i] DR. CROCKETT STEARNS, b., 1817, eldest son of William and Jane (Crockett) Steams, of East Tennessee; practiced medicine in California; returned to Indiana, and settled on a farm near Brookville, where he d., 1889; five children. . . .

[ii] ELIZA STEARNS, b., 1820, dau. of William and Jane (Crockett) Stearns, of Tennessee; md. Mr. Baker [?], a farmer, of Union Co., Ind.; she d., 1892 [?], four children. . . .

[iii] JOHN H. STEARNS, b., 1823, son of William and Jane (Crockett) Stearns, of Tennessee; of Indianapolis, Ind.; five children. . . .

[iv] SARAH C. STEARNS, b., 1826, dau. of William and Jane (Crockett) Steams, of Tennessee; md. John S. Ewing, nephew of Senator Thomas Ewing, of Lancaster, O. John S.

(3) "Billingsville, Indiana," from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Billingsville is an unincorporated community in Union Township, Union County, in the U.S. state of Indiana. . . .

A post office was established at Billingsville in 1833, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1903.

(4) A household headed by William STARNS is listed in the 1830 census of Grainger County, TN.

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

Assuming that William is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

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

(5) A household headed by Wm. STERNS is listed in the 1840 census of Union County, IN.

Listed in Wm.'s household are 1 free white male between 15 and 20 years of age; 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 1 free white male between 40 and 50 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; and 1 free white female between 40 and 50 years of age.

Assuming that Wm. is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1840 census.

Assuming that Wm.'s wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1840 census.

The free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age seems to have then been too old to have been a child of Wm. and/or his wife.

Assuming that the other persons in Wm.'s household are children of Wm. and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 2 sons (1 of which sons would have been born between 1820 and 1825, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1840 census) and 1 daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1840 census).

(6) A household headed by William STERNS is listed in the 1850 census of Bath Township, Franklin County, IN, next to households headed by his son-in-law, Samuel BACKE, and his son, Adam C. STERNS. [The actual enumeration date of the 1850 census is 16 October 1850.]

William is listed in the 1850 census as a farmer who was then 56 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1794. According to the 1850 census, he was born in VA.

Listed with William is his wife, Jane, who was then 56 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1794. According to the 1850 census, she was born in VA.

Also listed with William is John RASK, who was then 14 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1836. According to the 1850 census, he was born in VA.

25015 (1) Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1983, p. 1:

From the very few early records in Germany that have been found after World War II, it seems that the family descendency is from Frederick Staring, b. ca 1613 in the Palatinate, and his wife, Barbara, b. 1616 and buried February 16, 1698. She was eighty-two years of age at her death in the village of Wonsheim. Their son, Johan Nicholas Staring of Wonsheim, married Anna Elisabeth Barcke, daughter of the late J??rg Barcke of Mannheim (died January 26, 1685 at eighty-one years of age), in the church in Mannheim on July 17, 1686. Elisabeth Barcke was baptized on December 26, 1659. Their son, Johan Peter Staring, was baptized on October 20, 1686 in Mannheim, a village some ten miles south of Wonsheim.

25016 (1) Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1983, p. 1:

There is no baptismal record of the three sons of Johan Nicholas Staring, who decided to go to America. Since Johan and Elisabeth had a family at the time, it is assumed the sons were from a prior marriage, and just a few years older than Johan Peter.

(2) Kimball, Sterling O., The Mohawk Valley Starings and Allied Families, Herkimer County Historical Society, Herkimer, NY: 1998:

Like other early Mohawk Valley families, it is difficult to follow the Starings thru the shadows of colonial history. The first appearance of the name is on 4 Aug 1710 when Niclaus Staringer (Staring in the next recording) was entered on Gov. Hunter's Palatine subsistence list as having received support for three adults.

The small amount recorded indicates that the Starings had not been in New York very long. At six pence per day per adult, this amount would be for three & one third days. Thus we can say they were added to the list on 1 August
1710.

Could it be that they were passenger on the ship Herbert which was wrecked on the east end of Long Island on 7 July 1710? This was the last ship of ten that left England three months earlier, to arrive in New York. Or had they been held in quarantine since the arrival of an earlier ship?

When we back track to England we find that the Palatines had been temporarily located in the London area in encampments around the city. Four lists were made of the emigrants up to June 1709 (HZJ xi). The Staring family does not appear in these lists so we do not know what members of the family were among the 13,000 Palatines who reached England (Ibid).

The next step back is to Rotterdam where the Palatines had collected after the trip down the Rhine River. There were five Rotterdam Embarkation Lists of those transported to England (HZJ x), but the Staring family was not recorded on any of these lists. Perhaps they were late arrivals.

Far to the south, 23 kilometers west of the Rhine River at Worms, lies the village of Manheim at the junction of German highways 40 & 47. In the old church book of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Manheim is recorded the marriage on 17 Sept 1686 of Nickel Staring, son of Frederick of Wensheim (sic) & Anna Elisabeth Barckey, daughter of J??rg of Manheim (HZJ 994). The church books of Wensheim/Wonsheim cannot be found (Ibid) so the rest of the family ancestry is lost.

In Gov. Hunter's subsistance [sic] list for the Palatines, Niclaus Staringer (Staring in one entry) is recorded first on 4 Aug 1710 as the head of a family of three adults in New York City. On 24 June 1711 he was recorded in Livingston Manor on the Hudson River south of Albany, NY.

His name next appears in the record of the baptism of his daughter Anna Margretha 9 Aug 1711 at West Camp, as the settlement across the Hudson River was known. Undoubtably Niclaus Staring was married in late 1710 before being moved up the river from New York. This is supported by an increase to four in the number of adult Starings on the subsistance [sic] list for the period after 4 Oct 1710. His occupation of "zigler" as given in the baptism record has been translated as brick maker & as tile maker.

Nicholaus & Catryna Staring's names are found in the records of the Albany Reformed Church in 1714 when the baptism of their children Catharina & Joseph were recorded. This does not mean that Nicholas took his family to Albany for the baptism or that the children were twins. Most likely they were baptised when a minister from Albany was in Schoharie performing such rituals.

Nicholas Staring appears as a proprietor on the Burnetsfield Patent of 30 April 1725. When the patent was surveyed and the lots assigned in 1723, he received number 42, 100 acres on the south side of the Mohawk River in what is now German Flats Twp., Herkimer Co, NY.

He apparently settled on his lot for when his name was written in an indenture dated 24 Sept 1730 for land for the church he was described as being of Burnetsfield. (History of the Old Fort Herkimer Church)

An analysis of the names on the patent indicates that the proprietors received a second 100 acre lot, usually in the name of the eldest son. Nicholas' son Joseph was assigned lot 41 adjacent to that of his father.

Nicholas Staring's name was among those in an indenture of 1 July 1765 which transferred Gertrude Petrie's lot 17 of the Burnetsfield Patent to 46 of the patentees. This was an 86 acre lot "lying in the middle of the great flats . . . called the Stone Ridge" & is now the central part of Herkimer, NY. A survey was finally made & 62?? acres of the lot was laid out in 92 lots & assigned in the names of the original proprietors 1 June 1793. Two lots numbered 38 were assigned to Nicholas Staring.

In the year 1816 Adam Starns II and his family moved to Grainger County, Tennessee from Washington County, Va. His brother, Samuel, and his family were then the only Starnes still remaining on the middle fork of the Holston River where they had settled during the colonial period in 1769. . . .

1830 Census: Grainger County, Tennessee

Starns, Adam
Starns, Adam
Starns, William
Starns, Benjamin

(2) A household headed by Benjamin STARNS is listed in the 1830 census of Grainger County, TN.

Listed in Benjamin's household are 1 free white male under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white female under 5 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

Assuming that Benjamin is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, he would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that Benjamin's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

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

(3) A household headed by Benjamin STARNS is listed in the 1840 census of Meigs County, TN. [His surname is listed as STURM in the index to the 1840 census.]

Listed in Benjamin's household are 1 free white male under 5 years of age; 2 free white males between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white male between 40 and 50 years of age; 2 free white females under 5 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 40 and 50 years of age.

Assuming that Benjamin is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1840 census.

Assuming that Benjamin's wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, she would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1840 census.

Assuming that the other persons in Benjamin's household are children of Benjamin and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 4 sons (1 of which sons would have been born between 1835 and 1840, 2 of which sons would have been born between 1830 and 1835, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1840 census) and 5 daughters (2 of which daughters would have been born between 1835 and 1840, 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1830 and 1835, 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, and 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1840 census).

(4) Benjamin evidently died before 17 September 1850 (the actual enumeration date of the 1850 census), when his daughter, Sophia STARNES, was listed as head of his immediate family.

Starnes, Henry
Washington [County TN]
1819

[Note by compiler: Other persons named Starn, Starnes or Starns listed in 1819 tax lists in Washington County, TN were Christian Starn, David Starnes, Frederick Starnes, Frederick Starns, Jacob Starns, James Starnes, Jesse Starnes. John Starnes, Margaret Starnes and Thomas Starnes.]

(3) The compiler has not found a listing of a household headed by a Henry STARNES or Henry STARNS in the 1820 census of the United States. However, it should be noted that there were district-wide losses of census forms for Arkansas Territory, Missouri Territory and New Jersey, and partial losses of census forms for half the counties in Alabama, and roughly 20 eastern Tennessee counties supervised by the Federal Court District out of Knoxville.

(4) The compiler has found only 2 households headed by a Henry STARNES or Henry STARNS in the 1830 census, 1 of which households was located in Montgomery County, NY, and 1 of which households was located in Scott County, VA.

The compiler believes that the Henry J. STARNS who headed the household in Montgomery County, NY was probably not the same person as the Henry STARNES who is shown in the 1813 personal property tax list for Russell County, Virginia, and the 1819 tax list for Washington County, TN.

The compiler believes that the Henry STARNS who headed the household in Scott County, VA could conceivably be the same person as the Henry STARNES who is shown in the 1813 personal property tax list for Russell County, Virginia, and the 1819 tax list for Washington County, TN.

(5) A household headed by a Henry STARNS is listed in the 1830 census of Scott County, VA.

Listed in Henry's household are 1 free white male between 5 and 10 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 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white female between 30 and 40 years of age; and 1 free white female between 60 and 70 years of age.

Assuming that Henry 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.

The free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 60 and 70 years of age seems to have then been too old to have been Henry's wife. She was born between 1760 and 1770, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that Henry'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 1780 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

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

(6) The compiler has not found in the 1840 census a household headed by a Henry STARNES or Henry STARNS who would have been old enough to have been the same person as the Henry STARNES who is shown in the 1813 personal property tax list for Russell County, Virginia, and the 1819 tax list for Washington County, TN. The latter Henry STARNES could have (a) died before the enumeration date of the 1840 census (1 June 1840), or (b) been included in a household headed by another person in the 1840 census.

UNPLACED MEMBERS OF THE FREDERICK STARNES I FAMILY . . .

30. Nicholas Starnes. Sergeant Nicholas Starnes was born on November 6, 1756 in Cecil County, Maryland, and died on May 13, 1834. He resided in Fairfax County, Virginia, South Carolina, Washington County, Virginia, Washington County, Tennessee, Rhea County, Tennessee, and Talledega, Alabama. His son, George Washington Starnes appears in the records of Rhea County, Tennessee, and Jefferson County, Alabama. There appears to be a substantial question of whether he is part of the German Starnes family. He is noted here because he did live in Washington County, Virginia, and in Washington County, Tennessee, where many of Frederick's descendants resided. It is not believed that he is a descendant of Frederick Starnes.

(2) Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD, Gateway Press, 1983, p. 187:

Shortly after the Revolutionary War, Nicholas Starnes moved from southwest Virginia to the western side of the Tennessee Valley, between Knoxville and Chattanooga, to Rhea County, Tennessee. Nothing further is known of him until he was married to Barbara Winters by Daniel Rice, Justice of the Peace, on October 10, 1816. Nicholas was then sixty-one years old. Barbara was in her mid twenties to early thirties, suggesting this was a second marriage for old Nicholas. (The DAR lists her birth as 1784; death, 1861.) A pension claim statement of March, 1860 approximates her birth as late as 1793.

They moved from Rhea County, Tennessee, about five or six years after their marriage, to Blount County, Alabama. While living in Alabama, Nicholas made a pension claim for his services under the Act of 1832 and received $20 per annum. This incidence has caused Nicholas to be listed as a Revolutionary War soldier from Alabama and accounts for his name being included on the momument at the state capitol. Before Nicholas' death, on or about May 22, 1835, he and Barbara had moved to McNairy County, Tennessee. He had, in spite of ill health and aged faculties, returned to Alabama on some business he wanted to take care of and died in Talladega County.

Children of this marriage were: (DAR)

[i] Nancy m. Elisha Bradshaw

[ii] Sarah m. (1) John Beeheers (2) Isaac Ellis

[iii] George

[iv] Margaret m. John Cowan

Barbara, some years after Nicholas' death, married John Hibbins on January 25, 1847 in Conway County, Arkansas.

William Crabtree and Capt. Campbell in the Virginia Militia during the Revoltionary [sic] War. He was living in Roane Co., TN in 1805, and had moved to Rhea Co., TN by 1816.

I don't know if Nicholas had a first wife, but in 1816, he married Barbara Winters (c.1784/93-1861) in Rhea County, Tennessee. Around 1821/22, they moved to Blount Co., Alabama. In 1834, he was living in Jefferson Co., Alabama, and applied for a pension as a Soldier of the Revolution.

Apparenty, shortly before his death, they moved to McNairy Co., TN. He was on a trip back to Alabama to conduct some business there when he died in Talladega Co., AL. in May 1835.

(4) A household headed by Adam STARNS, Sr. [II] is listed in the 1830 census of Grainger County, TN.

Listed in Adam's household are 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 15 and 20 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 1 free white male between 60 and 70 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 60 and 70 years of age.

Assuming that Adam is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 60 and 70 years of age, he would have been born between 1760 and 1770, according to the 1830 census.

Assuming that Adam's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 60 and 70 years of age, she would have been born between 1760 and 1770, according to the 1830 census.

The compiler believes that because of the ages of Adam and his wife in 1830, it is unlikely that all of the other persons in Adam's household at the time of the 1830 census were children of Adam and/or his wife. [Benjamin STARNS, who is believed by the compiler to have been a son of Adam and his wife, was listed in a separate household in the 1830 census of Grainger County, TN. Also listed in separate households in the 1830 census of Grainger County, TN were Adam STARNS, Jr. and William STARNS, neither of whom is believed by the compiler to have been a son of Adam and his wife.]

1. Valentine Starnes (born ca 1722, died 1761) married Jean _____ (born ca ____, died ca ____).

NOTE: The will of Valentine Starnes was dated February 15, 1761, and probated on March 25, 1761 in Will Book 1, page 389, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. His will mentions his wife, Jean, but lists no children. Also mentioned in his will were his father, Frederick Starnes, his brother Frederick, his brother Frederick's oldest son, John Starnes, and his brother, Leonard Starnes. The will mentions as his cousins Arthur Cunningham, Charles Cunningham. Also mentioned was Henry Cunningham and Catherine Cunningham (mentioned as a minor) as cousins. It is therefore assumed that he died without issue.

25035 (1) Steelman, Sanford, The Starnes Family Four Generation Project :

Adam Starnes (born ca 1732, died ca 1816) married Caroline Carlock?

NOTE: At this time, there is no direct evidence that proves that Adam Starnes was the son of Frederick Starnes, Sr. However, circumstantial evidence seems to indicate this relationship. Adam Starnes first appears in the records of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in the mid 1760's, as having land on Dutch Buffalo Creek. The records of Mecklenburg County establish the presence of other sons of Frederick Starnes, Sr. in that same area (Leonard, 1764-1774; and Joseph, 1766-1774). It is assumed from the will of Valentine Starnes, that Frederick, Jr. was one of the older children of Frederick, and that Frederick, Jr.'s oldest son was John (ca 1745-1781). Thus if Adam occupied land (there is no record of him ever getting a deed for the land, only of there being an entry) in the mid-1760's then he should be a son, rather than a grandson of Frederick, Sr.

[I]n 1789 and 1793, old Adam I received two land grants totalling 450 acres in Greene County, Tennessee, evidently for his service in the French and Indian War from 1759 to 1760. This suggests that old Adam, at this time about sixty years or more of age, could have moved to Greene County with his nephews, Peter, John and young George. He spent his last years in east Tennessee and died there about the year 1806.

Barbara Starnes (born ca 1760) married David Starnes. See entry under David Starnes, son of Frederick Starnes, Jr. for their children.

NOTE: There is no direct documentation to show that Barbara was a daughter of Joseph Starnes. She married David Starnes on February 28, 1784 in Rowan County, North Carolina. The bondsman was Joseph Starnes (presumably Joseph Starnes, Jr.). The records of Virginia and North Carolina indicate that there were two branches of the Starnes family that settled in North Carolina after the Revolutionary War, those of Frederick, Jr. and Joseph (both of whom were killed in Kentucky in 1779). Both branches of the Starnes family moved from Virginia to North Carolina in the early 1780's. For those reasons, Barbara is designated as a daughter of Joseph Starnes.

Barbara Starns Starnes
Birth: Unknown, Virginia, USA
Death: Unknown, North Carolina, USA

I believe that Barbara Starns was probably a daughter of Joseph Starns (c. 1730-1779) and his wife Katherine, perhaps Carlock. She married her cousin, David Starnes (c. 1758-aft. 1833) in 1784.

Barbara and David had at least three sons, Nathaniel Starnes (c. 1785-1860s, m. Susannah Bost, probably buried here), Joseph Starnes (c. 1787-1850s, m. Catherine "Kate" Thompson, probably buried here) and Valentine M. Starnes (1792-1880, m. Elizabeth Richardson, buried at Prospect Methodist Church.) Many of their descendants lived in this area.

Charles Starnes (born ca 1756, died ca 1807) married Caty. Their children:

a. Elizabeth Starnes

b. Martin Starnes.

c. John Starnes.

d. Sally Starnes.

e. Paul Starnes.

NOTE: The placement of Charles Starnes is a difficult one, and based upon scanty information. Charles is shown as a legatee of the estate of Matthias Beaver in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and executed a receipt for his share in the estate in 1792. However, the record of the sale of the assets of the estate was held in 1781. Being a descendant of Matthias Beaver, I know that Matthias came to eastern Mecklenburg County in the early 1760's. There is no evidence that Matthias Beaver ever emigrated to southwest Virginia as did many of the members of the Starnes family. The Starnes that ultimately settled in Mecklenburg County after the Revolutionary War appear to be descendants of either Frederick Starnes, Jr. or Joseph Starnes. Joseph's branch of the family did not come back to North Carolina until around 1784. The status of legatee of Matthias Beaver seems to place Charles Starnes in North Carolina prior to 1784. This would be consistent with his brothers, John and Conrad being in North Carolina prior to 1784. Charles Starnes was named as a Constable of Cabarrus County in January of 1793. This seems to place him as one of the older of the second-generation Starnes in Mecklenburg County, and makes him more likely to be a son of Frederick Starnes, Jr. Charles' status as a legatee of Matthias Beaver may indicate that he married a daughter of Matthias Beaver.

The listing of the children of Charles Starnes comes from a deed dated 1808 recorded in Deed Book 9, page 431 of the Cabarrus County Registry. The 1790 and 1800 census entries for Charles Starnes indicate one daughter and three sons. This is consistent with the heirs shown in the deed, which show 3 sons and 2 daughters, one of whom was married.

Conrad Starnes (born ca 1755, died ca 1800) married Margaret Brown on September 16, 1778 (bond). Their children:

a. Jesse Starns (born ca 1776) married Rosanna Brown (his first cousin) on February 7, 1807.

h. Frederick A. Starns (born ca 1790, died 30 December 1873) married Elizabeth Salts (born ca 1793, died after 1874) on March 14, 1810.

i. William Starns (born ca 1793) married Sally Holly on March 6, 1817.

j. Adam Starns (born ca 1795).

NOTE: This assignment is made based upon several factors. Conrad first appears in the records of Botetourt County, Virginia in 1772, and again in a 1774 muster roll in Virginia for Lord Dunmore's War. This is consistent with Conrad living with his father in Botetourt County, after being driven out of southwest Virginia during the French and Indian War. Note that Frederick Starnes, Jr., his son Jacob, his son John, and Conrad Starnes all appear on the tax rolls of Botetourt County for 1772. Conrad then appears in Rowan County, North Carolina in 1778, when he married Margaret Brown, daughter of Jacob Brown. This is the same Jacob Brown to whom Frederick Starnes, III, son of Frederick Starnes, Jr. was indentured in 1784. I do not think that this was a mere coincidence. Conrad appears frequently in the records of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina until the mid-1790's when he moved to eastern Tennessee. Somewhere I saw an article on Jacob Brown (which I have misplaced) that has information consistent with Conrad and his family moving to Tennessee in conjunction with Jacob Brown.

Another theory on Conrad Starnes is that he was the son of Adam Starnes. This interpretation is based upon the will of Conrad Carlock. That will mentions his sister's two sons, Adam and Samuel Starnes. It also leaves a bay horse to Konrad Starnes, the son of Adam Starnes. The will is dated 1811. Adam Starnes, Jr. had a son, Conrad Starnes, who was born April 25, 1791. It is my belief that the horse was left to this 20 year old grandson of Conrad Carlock's sister, rather than to a man in his mid to late 50's.

This Conrad Starnes was too old to have been the son of Adam Starnes, who was born ca 1732. He seems to fit better as a son of Frederick, Jr. The list of the children of Conrad Starnes is from a letter from Tommy Starns to Herman Starnes dated August 24, 1988.

Daughter married Michael Moyer?

NOTE: The Revolutionary War pension record of Joseph Starnes, Jr. states that at Starnes Defeat in 1779 his "brother-in-law", Michael Moyer, was killed. This means that either Michael Moyer was married to a daughter of Joseph Starnes, or that Joseph Starnes, Jr. was married to the sister of Michael Moyer. If the relationship is the latter, then Joseph Starnes, Jr. was married at least twice. This is not inconceivable since he was 41 years of age when he married Rachel Rice. If he was married earlier, were there children of that marriage? See also the note for Joseph Starnes who married Susannah Ury in 1794 in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, below.

David Starnes (born 1758, died ca 1833) married Barbara Starnes (born ca 1760, died ca 1824). Their children:

a. Nathaniel Starnes?? (born ca 1784, died after 1860) married Susan Bost (born ca 1792, died after 1860).

NOTE: Of Them that Left a Name Behind ascribes Nathaniel to the line of Charles Starnes. However, he is not listed among the heirs that executed the deed conveying the estate lands of Charles Starnes. He did witness several real estate transactions of David Starnes, and resided in Mecklenburg/Union County, North Carolina in the same area where David Starnes lived. The 1790 census for David Starnes shows that he had 3 sons under the age of 16. Nathaniel seems to fit as one of those sons.

b. Joseph Starnes (born 1787, died ca 1855) married Catherine Thompson (born 1790, died ca 1855) ca 1809-1810.

c. Valentine Starnes (born 1792, died 1880) married Elizabeth (Betsey) Richardson (born 1796, died 1880).

NOTE: David Starnes is named as a son of Frederick Starnes, Jr. by the will of his father, dated August 2, 1778, and probated May 18, 1779 in Washington County, Virginia.

David Starnes
Birth: 1758, Augusta County, Virginia, USA
Death: 1833, Union County, North Carolina, USA

David Starnes was a son of Frederick Starnes, Jr. (c. 1724-1779) and his wife Mary, possibly Carlock/Guerlach. His father and uncle Joseph Starnes (c. 1730-1779) were killed by the Indians on the Virginia frontier in what is now Kentucky. David and his mother came to North Carolina around 1783. (His uncles had bought land in this area in the 1760s, but I don't know if they ever lived here.)

David married Barbara Starns (c. 1760-aft. 1822) in 1784. She may have been his cousin. David and Barbara had at least three sons, Nathaniel Starnes (c. 1785-1860s, m. Susannah Bost, probably buried here), Joseph Starnes (c. 1787-1850s, m. Catherine "Kate" Thompson, probably buried here) and Valentine M. Starnes (1792-1880, m. Elizabeth Richardson, buried at Prospect Methodist Church.) Many of his descendants lived in this area.
