201 From Kenneth O. Sims of Alabama (2005)
He lived in McMinn County, TN is 1830. Based on the birthplaces of his children as listed in U. S. Census reports, he moved between 1833 and 1835 to Alabama where in 1850 and 1860 he lived in Benton County (now Calhoun County). Between 1860 and 1863 he moved to north Jefferson County where he lived very close to the Blount-Jefferson County line.
Research indicates that Moses Abel was from the Abel family who were in the Abbeville District of SC at the beginning of the nineteenth century. It appears that members of this family moved through Lincoln, Knox, and Monroe Counties, TN and into Cherokee, Benton (now Calhoun) and Randolph Counties, AL.

202 From Kenneth Sims
6/7/2005

Also Garrison Sims lived in Cherokee County, Ga. in 1850 and 1860 and his widow lived there in 1870 and 1880. Although purely speculation, it looks as if George L. and Garrison "went back home" and married. As noted above, their land in Benton County, Al. sold in 1849 and 1851 for back taxes indicating they had left it. Ester Sims Stephenson, granddaughter of both B.H. and his brother Henry G. is said to have said that the Sims came from Georgia "because of a killing".

Research in Cherokee county, Ga. might prove fruitful.

203 From Linda Aubrey papers:
Of interest is the lawsuit filed in 1837 following Polly Johnson Cotton's death in the spring of 1835, when her daughter Rachael, then a widow of Ephraim Cotton, and remarried to Eli skipper, filed for her share of her mother's estate. Polly Johnson may well turn out to be our most colorful Cotton ancestor. According to the lengthy testimony recorded in State of Alabama, Chambers County, February term 1841, Minutes of Circuit Court - Book B, filed in Talladega County, AL, Polly had four illegitimate children: Rachael, Elizabeth, Amy, and Robert, prior to her marriage to John Cotton by whom she had three legitimate children: Nancy, Susanah, and James.

John Cotton apparently supported her three daughters and her son Robert was suported by her brother Simeon Johnson. Richard grant was reputed to be the father of her illegitimate children. Everyone seemed to be in agreement that prior to her marriage to John Cotton, Polly owned a number of negro slaves and their issues: Pearce valued at $700, Nance valued at $400, Bid at $300, Nathan at $400, Abraham at $300, Isaac at $1000, Jo at $1,000, Bess at $1,000, Will at $800, and Lune at $1,000. Luke had been sold to buyproperty in Chambers County, AL. Since her property was reportedly valued at $10,000 by her first four children, each side involved in the suit had to post $10,000. Eli Skipper and wife Rachel and Elizabeth, all of Coweta County, GA, Robert Johnson and William Kevney, widower of Amy Johnson (filing for their children) of Wayne County, NC posted the required bond. On the defendant's side John Cotton, William Lee, Sr., Boykin Lee, Edwin Lee, and Samuel Lee posted an equal amount.

Wittnesses for the defense seemed to be able to prove that the couple, John Cotton and Polly Johnson, were legally married. A woman for whom Polly had worked as a weaver reported that Polly had borrowed a ring for her to marry. Several persons testified that Polly had made a deed of gift of a negro to each of her children prior to her marriage to John Cotton. One witness stated that it had been agreed that if John's father gave them his land, her deed of gift to her first four children would be null and void. Another witness reported that Polly had stated that she had been threatened by John Cotton that he would not marry her if she proceeded with the deed of gift. Another witness said that Polly had thrown the deed into the fire as she was angry at her brother who would not carry the deed to the court to be registered after she married. It was reported that sometimes the couple lived unhappily together and Polly was heard to say she was sorry she ever married John and she wished all her children were bastards.

At the end of the hearings, the case was dismissed.

204 From Linda Aubrey:

In the year Edwin married, his brother Samuel and his wife set out to make their home in Tennessee where land was not so dear. The life of the wilderness was not the best but the chance to obtain large holdings of land drew Samuel away from Smithfield.

In 1832 the Creek Indians were being removed from west Georgia and east Alabama and the land was opened up to the white man. William, Edwin's other brother, decided in 1833 to travel to this wild and unsettled land to seek more land for himself and his children. William sold his tract of land on Mill Creek that he had obtained from his father in 1793 to a Henry Britt of Wayne County on January 26, 1833. On March 23, 1833, william gave notice that his remaining land would be sold the following Saturday and on the same notice was given the information that Edwin Lee would sell all of his household furniture and other articles.

From Lees of Johnson County, NC, by Dr. Luby Royall: a document which is a pass-through or safe passage letter given to settlers in the early 19th Century. It was a custom of the times and assured travelers they would not be stopped at state lines by authorities. (Jamile has a copy, and a transcription copy from Ruth Reid to Linda Aubry.) It reads: North Carolina, Johnson County: That the bearer thereof, Edwin Lee (by occupation a Gigg and chair maker) and no little skill in the blacksmith business, is a native of this county, springing from honest, worthy, and respectable parentage who during their whole life conducted themselves with undoubted veracity. The said Lee, states to us that he intends moving with his family, either to the South or Westward so soon as practicable. It is to be expected therefore (as he is a young man of an honest fame, industrious habits, and good moral character and very likely to continue during his residence this side of time wherever providence may cast his lot, a serviceable, and good member of society) that he will not be interrupted on his recourse, whilst he conducts himself an orderly citizen. Given under our hands, April 25, 1833. B. Bobin Hood J. P., Danual Sinlayson (teacher), R. M. Snead J. P., J. O. Krickland, James Lee, Sr., Tracy Langston.

The party leaving Smithfield would be quite large. Edwin Lee, his wife Susie Cotton, and their twin daughters, Mary and Zelpha, would be on the wagon train. susie Cotton's father, John Cotton, her brother James and her sister Nancy would also be in the group. Other families from the area of Smithfield also moved at the same time. The wagon train was very large when it set out in the spring of 1833.

The slaves that belonged to the individual families were detailed to help clear the way in places, to mind the stock and take care of their masters.

After many days of travel, the wagon train arrived at a fork of the road somewhere in Georgia. Here, some of the other settlers turned off to find their homes in the Indian Lands of central and southern Georgia. The wagon train moved on into Alabama. William, Edwin, and Boykin stopped in Chambers County, Alabama where William obtained land near Chambers County Courthouse (later the town of Lafayette). The tract contained about 300 acres.

Edwin's mother died before 1850, and Edwin moved his family to Tallapoosa County, AL. His new land was located near the Tallapoosa River and about 10 miles from Dadeville, the county seat. He later sold his part of the plantation obtained from the estate.

From Linda Aubrey - in file: Land Grant of 40 acres to Edwin Lee of Tallapoosa County, AL dated March 1, 1858. Signed by James Buchanan, President of the United States of America.

State of Alabama Department of Archives and History, letter dated Sept. 16, 1980 to Mrs. John Lee Bailas (Jamile has copy)
Confederate military record of Edwin Lee: A muster roll, dated Lafayette, AL, August 13, 1863, shows Edwin Lee a private in James J. Meadors Company, Chambers County Exempts. He registered at Beat 3, Chambers County, Alabama on August 30, 186?. He was 58 years of age, and exempt from conscription because of being over age.

205 From LuAna Drake Craig [mrscraig@highstream.com or tutu.lu@characterlink.net]
at http://genforum.genealogy.com/sc/greenville/messages
Greetings Winnie, Since I made that posting I now have the will of both Robert Fergason and his son Clement Fergason, which verify some individuals. I've also been able to track the Fergason line, with Bruce, to the Milford Baptist Church in Greer, Greenville County, SC where they were members from 1820s/1830s forward. The church celebrated it's Bi-Centennial in 2003 I believe. Another Bruce researcher sent me some of the church meeting minutes covering early part of 1820s. I'm hoping to verify Robert and his wife are buried there at the church cemetery. As to the document data you have found, I'm not sure at this point how it may connect, but it does seem that it has great potential, but it couldn't be my Robert Fergason since he was born in 1765 and the document is dated 1749, yet it could be his father maybe or some other relationship. Robert Fergason's wife was Cassander, a full-blooded Cherokee. The one document mentioned the buyer was an Indian trader and seller, Robert Fergason. Two of Robert's daughters married "Bruce" brothers: Hardin Bruce married Lucy Fergason and Silas Bruce married Mary Fergason.

206 From Pamela Butler Records 8/12/03:

July 29, 1825 letter written by Edmund Butler to William Butler in Williamsburgh, NC. Cousin, the child which you made inquiry was my father's, Edmund Butler, and she is now alive and lives with my mother in Hancock County about four miles above Powelton. She is deaf and dumb but has as much natural sense as any person you ever saw in her orientation and can turn her hand to any kind of business and is very ingenious with a needle. [I don't have her listed as one of his children.]

Edmund "E" Butler was the earliest known Butler in our line that we have been able to locate in the United States. We believe he wsa born in Ireland but have not been able to trace his parents. We know that our line of the family came to the Engilish Colony some time around the late 1600's to the early 1700's.

We call this Edmund "E" to differentiate him from all of the other Edmund Butlers in the family. He signed as "E" as his mark instead of an "X". This does not mean his middle name was "E". His "E" was made with a "c" figure sitting on top of another "c".

1747 September: Book 5, p 342, Under Goochland County, Parish of Southam, Virginia, General Index to Deeds, Wills, etc.: Parish of Southam, Goochland County, Virginia. [NOTE that his daughter Nancy Ann Butler was only 9 years old when this will was registered, and she is not mentioned.]

"In the name of God Amen
I Edmond Butler of the Parish of Southam in the County of Goochland being very sick and weak but in perfect sense and memory hath thought it fit to constitute and ordain this to be my last Will and Testament and I do appoint my well beloved Wife Frances Butler Whole and Sole Executrix, and for my wordly goods, I desire they may be left in manner and form as followeth, after my Lawful Debts are paid viz Item I I give and bequeath to my well beloved wife Frances Butler all of my moveable Estate to Raise my children, and after to be at her disposal. Item I give and bequeath to my son Aaron Butler 147 acres of land at the lower end of my Survey, to be laid off in a regular form to him and his heirs forever. Item I give and bequeath to my son John Butler 100 A of Land Joyning the line of the above said Aaron to him and his heirs forever. Item I give and bequeath to my son Edmund Butler 100 A of the land joyning the line of the above John Butler to him and his heirs forever. Item I give and bequeath to my son William Butler 100 A. of land whereon the plantaion I now live on, to him and his heirs forever; in Witness whereof I have Set my hand and Seal this 27th day of April 1747."

Part of Goochland County was divided off and became Cumberland County, VA in 1749. Edmund "E" Butler's farm land was in that section that became Cumberland County. Larry Butler thinks this land was located near road #712, Mahan Road (near junkyard). Take Farmville North on main road and just before Mahan there is a McHanan Road that he thinks goes west to east through the Butler property the instant you cross the road across Badluck Branch (which is unmarked as of 2003).

207 From papers received from Linda Aubrey: The first record found of Samuel Lee is an indication in a deed of land that he was granted a tract or survey of land on the South side of the South prong of Mill Creek in Johnston County, North Carolina about 1770. The grant is described as part of three tracts or surveys of land. The one granted to George Hope, July 8, 1779, the second to Edward Lee, August 26, 1770, the third to Samuel Lee (date now unknown), the same containing by estimation five hundred acres.

Samuel Lee sold his tract of land on Mill Creek to his son, William Lee, on January 15, 1793, for the sum of five pounds. This sale was considered as William's part of his father's estate.

Samuel Lee is found on the US Census from 1790 to 1830. He lived these years in Johnston County, NC. The census record for the year 1830 shows a Samuel Lee Sr., as being 80 to 90 years of age.

The will of Samuel Lee was written August 20, 1828 and was probated upon his death in 1831. Linda Aubrey, from Ruth Reid, supplied Jamile with a transcribed copy of the will from Dr. Luby Royal's book "Lees of Johnson County, NC". It includes a line item: My three children, to whit, my daughter Winnifred, deceased and her heirs, my son William and my daughter Nancy I have given and disposed of as much or more of my estate to them and their heirs by bills and deeds of sale and deeds of gifts, etc, as I have to leave to these I have named in this my last will and testament.

209 From Raymond Bruce on 9/6/06: My first cousin James was up from Atlanta this past week end. We visited the Bruce cemetery and I counted the field stones, there were 32. Mr brown had the grass (weeds) cut a little better than when we were there. We also visited Milford cemetery and much to my surprise, beside Smiley Bruce, the doctor, there was a new marker. It had been placed there since our visit. It is that of Lucy Ferguson Bruce. Hardin's wife. Silas' wife Mary's sister. The Indian woman. Lots of questions. The field stone was left there along with the other 5 or 6. I called the church today and they know nothing.
I called the monument company in Landrum and the lady I talked to was a Bruce before marriage. Guess what? She is a cousin also. She shares the same GGG Grandfather as we do. She is to do the research and see who could be alive that we don't know of. She promised to call back tomorrow.

210 From researcher Carolyn Pitts Brand, Marietta, Georgia. She also sent Jamiles two photos of Isaac, and a photo of his grave site.

Obituary from Anniston Star Newspaper: Saturday, January 5, 1918"Aged Citizen Buried Saturday Afternoon" Isaac Pippin, aged 80 years, died last night at the home of his daugher, Mrs. Mattie Robertson, near Eulaton, and the body was buried at Middleton this afternoon at 1 O'clock following services conducted by Rev. Noah Stephens. Mr. Pippin had lived in Anniston and vicinity for about twenty years and was known as a citizen of the highest order. He is survived by eight grown children, L. W., J. H., I. E., W. M. and Perry Pippine. Mrs. Jennie Mange and Mrs. Mattie Robinson. The body of Mr. Pippin was prepared for burial by the Murphy Undertaking Company, and brought to the home of his other daughter Mrs. C. A. Mange. Mr. Pippin was a life-long member of the Baptist Church, and his long life of Christian service has been a blessing to those with whom his life has been linked. [In the same paper Isaac is listed as active on the Pension roll for the civil war.]

Civil War: Enlisted in Upson County, GA on May 7, 1862 as a Private. Distinguished service in Georgia. Enlisted in Company I, 32nd Infantry Regiment Georgia. Surrendered Company I, 32nd Infantry Regiment Georgia on April 26, 1865 in Greensboro, NC. Wounded at the battle of Johns Island, South Carolina.

By 1867 he had moved to Tallapoosa County, AL where he married Martha. After her death, he married Delila Frances Gaullman McCrackins. About 1887 he moved to Calhoun County, AL. He died there.

211 From Sandy Hart 2008:
Benjamin and Sarah Bell bought a farm in the Selma area and had three children by 1900. In the next 13 years they had 7 more children. Even thought many members of the family left California for the gold rush in the Yukon and Alaska areas, they remained in California. By 1920 they moved north to the Chapman district of Santa Clara County, where they lived on a farm with several of their children and one grandchild.  
LOONEY Benjamin Leonidas (I0683)
 
212 From The Decatur Daily, article about James W. Looney of Danville, AL: Absolem was of true frontier spirit, trapping and hunting in the rugged southwest of the colony, Virginia's last frontier. There, while living in caves to avoid the Indians, Absolem discovered a fertile valley, rich in blue grass pastures, to which he led his family and some followers and founded a new settlement. This was at least four years before that noted frontier explorer, Daniel Boone, arrived in the same area to build a fort only six miles from Absolem's homestead. To this day, the quiet valley, some 1 miles from Bluefield, VA, is known as "Abb's Valley" in honor of its discoverer, Absolem Looney. He also served in military support for General Washington during the American Revolution.

Absalom was living with his family on the Bluestone, a branch of New River, in 1753 or 1754 when his father Robert sent for him because of danger from the Indians at the outlying settlement and offered him part of the home place. Absalom and his family came and settled in the "Draft", on Draper's place, on land where his brother Daniel had been living. Daniel Looney made to Absalom a deed dated September 10, 1754 for this place of 180 acres on Long Run, a branch of James River. Absalom bought 248 acres on the south side of James River in 1754. In 1759 he may have, for a short time, been in Carolina with his older brother Adam Looney. On May 15, 1765 Absalom and Margaret Looney deeded the 180 acres on Long Run to Peter Looney.

Absalom and his family probably moved from the tract on Long Run, perhaps a little further west, before or about September 10, 1767 when he patented 54 acres on Stone Run, a branch of Craig's Creek. (Augusta County, VA, Deed Book 37, Page 94). He must have lived there during much of the latter part of his life. On the same date, Absalom had a grant of 166 acres on Craig's Creek.

I assume that your James KLowe was the son of John Lowe and Nancy Ann Butler. I am interested in Aaron Augustus Butler because of the similarity of family names with his family and my G-Ggandfather's family. My information shows Aaron Augustus married to an unkown woman with children: Daniel Butler, William H. and Martha. The second wife produced Mary Ann, Permelia Eleanor and Sarah Francis. Wife three, Priscella Naughton resulted in Aaron Augustus
My Great Grandfather, Samuel Lowe, father unknown, but family tradition says that one of his parents died and he couldn't get along with his step parent and left home. But his children were named Permelia Ann, William H.H., Thomas Anderson, James Ellison, Sarah Francis, John Fletcher, Amanda Ardella, Mary Emma, Ella Lenora and Samuel Warren. There are enough overlap between his children and Aaron Augustas's that I feel there is some relationship between them but have not been able to locate any. Any help would be appreciated.

Aaron married three times, losing the first two to death. 1. Priscilla Mahon, 2. ________, 3. Mary Ann Warren.

He was a member of the GA state legislature at one time. He lived mostly around Hawkinsville and Houston County, GA.

247 In 1766, David and his wife Mary sold their home in Virginia near the older Looney parents on Looney's Mill Creek, near the James River, and by 1770 they had moved into the Holston on lands along the Indian frontier. By 1774 the family had settled into a cabin on Muddy Creek, two miles north of the Holston River, in what was then Washington County, VA, but which became Sullivan County, NC, and eventually Tennessee. David remained active in the militia, but took on an active leadership in the growth and development of Sullivan County, NC.

October 18, 1765 David Looney gave bond with James McDowell as the appointed guardian to Margaret Looney, orphan of Daniel Looney and granddaughter of Robert Looney. (Augusta County, VA, Wills Book B3, page 433)

David Looney was one of the first justices and major of the militia of the new country. He was advanced to the lieutenant-colonel, which office he resigned in 1781. He was a member of the lower house of the Carolina Assembly of 1784. He was one of the first justices of the peace under the new State government. He was a delegate from Sullivan County to the convention of 1788 which was called to consider the ratification of the National Constitution. He was in 1790 commissioned by Governor Blount a justice of the peace in his county, under the territorial form of government. In the first legislature of the State of Tennessee he represented Sullivan County.
