101 Caleb Bedwell Migrated to Rowan Co., North Carolina after he filed a land division petition. He is shown in the 1790 Census, Salisbury District. His brothers Robert, Thomas and Elijah had preceeded him to Rowan Co. About 1794 he moved to Grayson Co., VA where he lived very briefly near his brother Robert. He then moved on to present day Lincoln Co., Tennessee where he died. Bedwell, Caleb (I682)
 
102 Came to Drew Co between 1851-1859 Wallace, James W (I2557)
 
103 Captain George or George Sr.'s second child was George, Jr. whose wife was Anne. Again, lack of data precludes us from knowing anything more about her. For as much as we know about his grandfather and father, we are woefully deficient in material on George Jr. other than the basic information on his children and what happened to them. From the lack of entries in the Middlesex County Court Records and Church Records, we can only assume that he chose, very emphatically, not to pursue a career of public service similar to that of John and George Sr. He was born, lived and died in Middlesex County, quite unlike three of his other brothers. Five of George Jr.'s eight children died at young ages. But unlike the children of John and Captain George before them who died primarily in infancy, these fourth generation children were living 8 to 13 years before succumbing to disease and death. In his will recorded in Middlesex County Courthouse, by then located in Urbana, George Jr. age 53, mentioned his three living children, Thomas, George, and Ann, plus his brother John the only living sibling remaining in Middlesex County. Thomas and George both left Middlesex County traveling some 200 miles westward to Amherst County, Virginia before eventually settling in Georgia. The majority of Worthams who have lived and are living today in Georgia have their ancestors in these two lines. Ann remained in Middlesex County and married her first cousin Samuel Wortham. Their only son, Charles was brought to Kentucky by his guardian sometime around 1784 - 1786. From this Charles, sprang the Kentucky branch of the Worthams. George Sr.'s third child, Sarah (1701-1720) was married on November 1, 1716 to John Fearn in Middlesex County. A detailed genealogical biography can be found on this family in a publication entitled "The Fearns of Virginia" by Elizabeth C. Ferneyhough. John Wortham (1703-1757) was George Sr.'s fourth child. He married, in Middlesex County on November 2, 1732, Mrs. Judith Machen Stewart, the widow of Hugh Stewart. Judith was the daughter of Thomas and Mary Chelton Machen. John and Judith also lived out their entire lives within the confines of Middlesex County. As with George Jr., there is limited information to provide us insight concerning the life of John Wortham. Once again, we have to assume that he quietly spent his days farming. He and Judith had twelve children, of whom only four are on record as having been married. As far as can be ascertained they all remained in Middlesex County. their son Samuel married his cousin Ann and resided in Middlesex. Samuel died when his only son Charles was three years of age. Charles along with his younger sister were brought to Kentucky prior to it becoming a state in 1792. William (1707-1744) the sixth child of George Sr., was the first Wortham ofwhom we have factual information indicating he moved from and lived outside Middlesex County. He left home, but only went as far as adjacent Essex County, the only County which shares a land boundary with Middlesex. William married Miss Margaret Rutherford, daughter of John and Mary Rutherford of Essex County. They had four children; three girls and one son, John who in turn had only one child - a girl named Rose. Hence the Wortham surname ended on that particular branch of the family.. We know that William died in Essex County, but we are not exactly sure where John died even though he was indeed a resident of the County. Samuel Wortham (1709-1774) George Sr.'s seventh child, was the first of his sons to remove a significant distance from Middlesex County. He and his wife Margaret - again surname unknown, lived in Caroline County, Virginia which is located about 65 miles Northwest of Middlesex. Their journey could have been accomplished either by road or by traveling up-river on the Rappahannock. The earliest record of Samuel in Caroline County is on March 9, 1749 at which time he was serving as an Estate Appraiser. From 1753 to 1759, he was Sr. Warden at St. Margaret's Parish Church, and on May 10, 1759, he was sworn in as a member of the Vestry for that Parish. Also in 1759 he was appointed as Overseer of the County Road. During the period from 1760 to 1771, Samuel was named as executor of several Caroline County wills. Samuel and Margaret gave the name of "Chalk Level" to the plantation on which they lived and raised their eight children. Their youngest son, Charles, inherited this family land, resided there and raised a large family of his own. His descendants account for many Worthams in and around the Richmond vicinity through the years. Charles Wortham (1711-1743), the eight child, chose to remain in Middlesex County, where he married Ann Hipkins/Hypkins/Hipkings. Apparently the spelling of her surname caused considerable confusion among the County Court Clerks there. Charles died relatively early and left no children named in his will. James Wortham (1716-1770) the last child of Captain George Wortham also migrated from Middlesex County, but opted for a southern route. He is on record as having owned property in Prince George's County, Virginia, but lived the majority of his life, and died in Brunswick County, Virginia which is located on the virginia-North Carolina border. He also owned sizeable amounts of land in North Carolina, so it is not surprising that his children took up their livelihoods in that state. Two of his sons, William and Edward had many descendants, some of whom remained in North Carolina, but the majority migrated further west into Tennessee, and eventually into Missouri, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma. Wortham, George (I2010)
 
104 Carter and his wife moved from Haywood Co., Tennessee to Drew Co Arkansas between 1844-48. He was a shoemaker and farmer. Hankins, Carter T (I1547)
 
105 Catharine Jane was the youngest daughter of Angus L. Finlayson of Cumberland County, NC, (b. 1790 Scotland), and Catharine Finlayson (b.1792). Her siblings were Christian A. Finlayson b.1822; Mary Finlayson b.1824; Alexander Finlayson b.1826; Margaret Finlayson b.1828 and Malcom Finlayson b.1830 When Sherman's Army came through here in the Spring of 1865, as someone said, "almost abreast from Rockingham, N.C. to Laurel Hill, N.C.," the soldiers tried to find my grandfather, Daniel W.Campbell. (He was 50 yrs old). They gathered up all the men they could find and took them with the army on the march. The way I understood the things I heard about my Campbell family, my grandfather seemed to be terrified of the military forces. I have often wondered if his father, or a close relative, was killed in the Revolutionary War; perhaps at Moore's Creek Bridge, near Currie, N.C. They did not find my grandfather. The soldiers threatened to kill my grandmother Catharine (She was 31 with a 2 year old child, Norman A.) if she didn't tell them where he was. She sat on in her chair in the old log kitchen and held my father on her lap. She just stared at them; but wouldn't tell them a thing. Our family had plenty of cows, hogs, chickens, etc. The soldiers helped themselves to these; dressing some of the meat on our kitchen floor, I've been told. As for granddaddy, he was in the "shuck pen" some distance from the house. He must have stayed buried there for three days! That is the length of time, I've been told, that the army camped on our place. It is my guess these troops were backed up all the way from the camping ground at Campbell's Mill Pond to close around our homeplace. Sherman's Army took everything they could haul off, wherever they went, leaving many people with nothing to eat except a few grains of corn, and maybe a chicken that got away from them. Eugene McRae, Sr. told me that his grandfather, who lived about a mile below Marks Creek Presbyterian Church on the east left his house and started up to our house to see "if Mr. Campbell had anything to eat." When he got started, however, he saw that there were bonfires all over our hill. It is thought that this army was waiting for another section to meet them, or catch up with them. Campbell's Mill Pond was a mile or more, northeast of the church, on Mill Creek. One can only imagine what a bad time this was for the family. I think about the way some of the families hid their belongings from the army. At one of the Cameron Family Reunions, Mrs. Maude Kelly told how their family members out-smarted the army. She said it was spring planting time for farmers, and they were getting their garden planted. They dug deep trenches and placed their hams and whatever other cured meat they had in them; replaced the dirt and planted their onions on top of the rows. Sherman's Army never found their meat!

114 Daddy was not a great talker but he had the patience of Job when it came to listening. He would listen an hour or two to any of his friends who came to talk. I knew him well enough to know that he was not really interested in some of the conversations. But everybody was his friend - even those who shut up his cows! He just never did say or do anything to anyone that was harmful to them. I know from looking over his books and papers that he had a lot of girl friends when he was a young single man, too. I am going to include a letter here that I especially loved, because I knew the lady who wrote it when she was old. It was written from Wilkesville, N.C. on October 19th, 1893. Dear Norman, Dear Friend, thinking about you all I concluded to write you a few lines. This leaves me well and all the rest. Hoping you all the same. I have nothing interesting to write. I don't see why some of you don't come to see us. We looked for you and your ma all last winter. It was all in vain. You don't know how bad I want to see you all. I am homesick dreadful bad and would rather go to old Marks Creek than anywhere else in the world. We heard Mr. TERRY was dead and Mrs. Addie PATE. I am so sorry to hear of their deaths. There was a very sad death in this neighborhood last night. Mr. James PURCELL, a prominent young man, aged about 27 years, was under the influence of liquor and him and a negroe had a fuss. The negroe cut him in two places in the side. The doctor sewed him up, but they were deadly wounds. It is certainly a bad thing. The negroe is gone. Mr. John WILKES stayed with Willie night before last on his way to Presbytery. I had a letter from Mary Jane CAMERON last Monday. I saw Dunk Cameron in Maxton last week. He looks natural as old wheat. Well, Norman I like to live down here splendid. There is lots of young folks down here. I had an invitation to go to a sociable party last week, but did not go. It was about eight miles away. I wish you could have been down here last night. There was two pretty boys here. Stayed until bedtime. There is school going on down here now. Mr. RUSSELL is teaching. We have spelling match every Thursday night, prayer meeting Saturday night, Sunday School Sunday evening. Have you got Sunday School at the church now? Please write to me and give me all the news - How all our people is getting on, also Mrs. Terry, Mr. Wilkes, Mr. McDUFFIE and all my friends. I have written to Mrs. CAMPBELL last winter but never heard from her. Anxiously awaiting for an early reply I remain your friend, Mary McLEAN Tell Mr. FINLAYSON howdy for me. Tell him I have not forgotten him. I want to see him worse than I ever did. Give my love to Mrs. Mary. Kiss your ma for me. Tell her she ought not to let Effie cut her out of Eli [TERRY]. I'm sorry she cut me out. My love and best wishes to you all. Lizzie is going over in Richmond visiting Mrs. JOHNSON this week. I don't know when I'll get to see you all, this winter if I live. You and your Ma come. Campbell, Norman Angus (I773)

135 Duncan Campbell was a lover of good times and would have parties for the young folks who would come from great distances and dance until the wee hours of the morning. Emiline Campbell said some who came on horseback would be after sunrises getting home. A reunion would be held every year at Duncan's home (now destroyed). It was a nice place with a log kitchen at one end of the courtyard and what they called the big house at the other. Two rows of trees formed the walkway between the two and it was such a wonderful shady place for a reunion. Originally Joined Capt John C Evan's Co., from the 28 Regiment South Carolina Militia.

137 Duncan McGregor was born in 1784, reared and educated near Inverness,Scotland. Sometime before 1805, he made his way to a port in Scotland where he boarded a ship for America. He came to this country, alone, without his parents and brothers and sisters. For whatever reason they remained behind. Duncan arrived in North Carolina and made his way to Cumberland County, where he met and married Nancy Finelson (Finlayson), daughter of John Finelson. In November of 1809, Nancy gave birth to a son, Daniel. Daniel ( George's gggrandfather), was followed shortly by John, (Lynne's gggrandfather), born in 1811 and then by Alexander, who was born in 1813. Duncan, it is said, also served in North Carolina during the War of 1812 as a Rifleman, 7th Co., detached from 14th Brigade, Cumberland Regiment. (North Carolina) Before 1815 or so, Duncan and Nancy McGregor left North Carolina for Georgia. They settled in Montgomery County, near a village that is now known as McGregor, where Duncan farmed and raised cattle and sheep and hogs. In 1816 Nancy again gave birth. This time the child was a daughter, Catherine (Katherine) (my ggggrandmother). "Katy" was followed by Mary Jane in 1824, Isabel in 1826, Caroline in 1829 and Ann in 1833. Also born to Duncan and Nancy were two additional daughters that died in their infancy. According to his grandson, W. D. McGregor, "Duncan and his family lived from two to five miles from their nearest neighbors, during their first twenty-five years in Georgia." They were a God fearing family that converted to the Methodist faith, due in part, to a lack of a Presbyterian preacher in the early days. "In 1839 Duncan and his son John purchased what was known as one of the Wyche farms on the Oconee River, seven miles below Mt. Vernon, on the Dublin and Darien River Road." Duncan and Nancy McGregor lived there until their deaths, he in 1858 and she in 1864. They are both thought to be buried in the Long Pond Cemetery, in what are now unmarked graves. Many of their children are buried in the McGregor Cemetery about a mile away. Of Duncan's life prior to his arrival in America, very little is known. We do know that he had living siblings when he left Scotland. The following excerpt is from a letter written in 1834, by Duncan McGregor to his cousin, Donald Murchison, of Moore County, North Carolina. "I will endeavor, with the help of God, to write you a few lines, although with trembling hand and a feeble body. I will give you as much account from the old country as the limit of my paper will admit as I received a letter from my brother of mine living at Lochcarron. My father and mother departed this life years ago. The rest of my brothers and sisters are living at Gairloch. My brother gives a very distressing account of the suffering of the poor people in that country, by their landlords, in the paying of high rent, and even some of the best stock holders have failed. My brother is very anxious to come to this country, but is not able to pay the passage on account of having a large family." He goes on to say, "Although the Lord has been pleased to afflict me since I have been in this country, He has at the same time conferred many temporal blessings upon me. There have been born to me, since I have been here, seven daughters, two of which He has been pleased to call to Himself in their infancy." It can only be thought that Duncan, in his reference to his brother and to the "suffering", was referring to the "CLEARANCES" which had been and were still taking place. In the 1881 Census there were still McGregors in both Gairloch and in Lochcarron, Scotland. We feel that it is quite possible there are still McGregors that are descendants of Duncan's siblings, still living in the Gairloch area. If you feel that you might have a connection to our McGregor line, please email us. McGregor, Duncan (I3165)

143 Enlisted May of 1862 in Dallas Georgia, Discharged in May of 1864. member of the 40th Georgia Company A The Atlanta Constitution Atlanta, Georgia 22 Aug 1887 Fired From Church A good story comes from Paulding county. Sometime ago while Deputy Marshal Abercrombie, and one or two other revenue offices, were on the lookout for illicit distilleries they, strangely enough, managed to get hungry, and one of the men was sent to the nearest house for provisions. The messenger went to the house, got his rations, paid the amount asked, and returned to his confers without, of course, letting anybody know his business. The residence was that of James Bundrum. Mr. Bundrum is one of the leading men of the neighborhood, and has always been a shining light in the new Georgia Baptist church. He shines in that capacity no longer. In some way the fact that he had old provisions to revenues became known, and he was promptly arraigned before the church. A heated discussion followed, in the course of which at least one man declared that no honest man would furnish anything to eat to a deputy marshal or a deputy collector. Mr. Bundrum acknowledged having sold food to a man who called for it, and said that if his brethren wanted to turn him out they could do so. And they did at least that is the story as told by the revenue officers. Bundrum, James B (I1632)

146 Family story of how Alexander Finlayson met Emiline Campbell as related by Gertrude Rowland: Alexander was a Tailor. After the war was over , he went through the country to make suits for men. At that time, the cloth was woven by families. Grandfather (Duncan) Campbell's home seemed to be a popular place for guests. So Alexander was staying there and would go out in the community to make the suits. Enlisted in Fayetteville, North Carolina on May 14, 1862 by Captain Robert for the duration of the war. Another enlistment is stated on Aug 20 1863, From Cumberland Co., NC; Volunteered and Aged 41 On Company Muster Roll for: July & Aug 1863; Not paid; Present; Pay due from date of enlistment.

148 Fred, If your George William French is the son of George and Nancy French from South Carolina, I may have some information on Nancy's family. Nancy Corr, daughter of John Corr and Mary (Polly)(maiden name Zachary) Corr, married George French. The Corrs lived in Anderson County, South Carolina. John Corr was born January 18, 1772 in Middlesex County, Virginia, and died in Anderson County, South Carolina on March 27, 1839. Mary Corr was born in Caswell County, North Carolina on August 8, 1776 and died in Anderson County, South Carolina on August 28, 1855. Most of John and Mary Corr's children moved to Alabama. Three of their sons, William, Laban, and Jesse, moved to Pickens County, Alabama. CAMPBELL COUNTY, GEORGIA: DEEDS: Book D, p. 395--George Frank for one dollar sells 4 acres of land "formerly in Fayette, now in Campbell" on the lines of land of George French and John French to the trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church South on 20 Sep 1847. This was the only deed in Campbell County for George French. I just realized by reading this deed I probably should have looked in Fayette County for any records on George French. MARRIAGES: John French married Lucindy Bachelor on 6 Apr 1841. (John and Lucinda are in the 1850 Census of Chambers County, Alabama near George W. French). ANDERSON DISTRICT, SOUTH CAROLINA: DEEDS: Book P, p. 318-319, 6 Nov 1820--Joel Breazeale of Pendleton Dist. to George French of Greenville District, for $300, 180 acres on Rock Creek, Pendleton Dist. Witnesses were: Richard Williams and Joel M. Breazeale, Jr. Rebecca Breazeale relinquished claim to land. Book P, p. 478-479, 7 Jan 1822--George French of Pendleton Dist. to S.J.R. Williams of Pendleton District, for $300, 180 acres on Rock Creek, Pendleton Dist. Witnesses were: Robert Allen and John Pepper. Nancy French, wife of George French, relinquished her claim to the land. Book U, p. 178, 3 Sep 1831--George French to Richard Shockley, land on the Savannah River by Francis Dunn. Witnesses were Nathaniel S. Harris and John F. Shockley. This deed was too light to copy. I do have copies of the other originals. GREENVILLE DISTRICT, SOUTH CAROLINA: DEEDS--I included deeds which were for older French men. There was an older George French there as well as a Peter, Samuel, John, and Joseph. The deeds go back into the 1780's. Any one of these men could have been George French (Sr.'s) father. There were no probates to help with that problem, however. One of the deeds, for John French, was witnessed by a John Avery. French, George (I2212)
