152 From the Pittsylvania County, Virginia Wills 1768-1800 9293555 p-692H-5 Welden, Jonathan D&W, P 129 D: Dec 18, 1781 Pr: Oct 15, 1782 Will Tunstall, Clerk, Pittsylvania County, Virginia Wife: Mary--my plantation where I live with stock of all kinds Son: Jonathan Weldon--100 acres of land at upper end of my land , across from "line to line" Son: Isack Weldon--100 acres of land joining Jonathan's "line to line". Son: William Dale Weldon--50 acres of land where I live after wife's decease and 10 lbs cash Dau: Susannah Weldon 1 feather bed Dau: Frances Weldon 1 feather bed Four youngest daughters: Elizabeth Weldon, Sarah Weldon, Mary Weldon, Lida Weldon All moveable estate, after wife's death, to William Dale Weldon, except the pounds to be equally divided Executors: Wife, Mary Weldon, Moses Hank and John Waller Witnesses: John Creel, James Addams, John (X) Pond and Fortan Dodson s/Jonathan (X) Weldon The following is taken from notes originally prepared by Jacqueline Kimberlin Higdon: "The parents of Jonathan Weldon are unknown at this time. Jonathan and his wife Mary Elizabeth were early Virginia settlers in what is now Pittsylvania County. The Weldons most likely were similar to thousands of other poor yet hardy people who moved away from the Atlantic coast in hopes of creating a living out of the wilderness. Arriving in the area, the Weldons found a beautiful land of rolling hills covered by open woods, sparkling streams, and broad sweeps of rich meadows. Wild game was plentiful with large numbers of bear. Buffalo still roamed the hills of Pittsylvania County as late as the 1730's. Although no records document the exact year Jonathan came into this country, his first recorded land acquisition involved a grant of 804 acres on the waters of Lower Double Creek. Jonathan Weldon's grant in the southeast corner of the county was first surveyed for Nathaniel Hughes on 12 February 1766. Whatever interest Hughes had in the property was assigned to Jonathan Weldon through a grant issued by Governor Thomas Jefferson on 14 June 1780. Weldon paid 80 shillings to the Commonwealth for this grant. Adjoining property was owned by Thomas Walkins, Charles Weatherford, and Henry Tally. The farm was located between Kentuck and Laurel Grove. His land was toward the end of present Highway 711, also called Slayton Road off Route 729. Once the land was obtained the Weldons likely cleared the land of forests for planting. Life must have been difficult in those early days, in part because Indian raids had been a threat in the recent past. During the period of the French and Indian War (1750's) several forts were built nearby to protect the settlers The 1903 family history by William Gray Welden SKETCH OF THE WELDEN FAMILY, states that all of Jonathan Welden's (Weldon) children were born in Pittsylvania County and that he had three sons; Isaac, Beverly, and Jonathan (II), the latter son born in 1776. This history indicates there were at least three daughters; Susan, Sallie(Sarah) and Frances, and that during the Revolutionary War the two oldest sons left home; Beverly Welden moving to a northern state and Isaac Welden moving further south. In a will signed by Jonathan Weldon, on 18 Dec 1781, and still on file at the Pittsylvania County Court House, shows that the three sons were Isaac, Jonathan (II), and William Dale Weldon. Six daughters were named; Susannah, Frances, Elizabeth, Sarah (Sallie), Mary, and Lida (Lydia). Also, Jonathan Weldon did not reach Pittsylvania County until after his marriage to Mary Elizabeth Hanks, therefore some of the elder children may have been born elsewhere. Jonathan's will was witnessed by four of his neighbors, which included John Creel (who was the pastor of the oldest Baptist church--Kentuck--that is still active in this Virginia county) and John Henry, a cousin of Patrick Henry. In William Gray Welden's book he states Jonathan Welden (he spells it with an "e") fought for the patriots at Yorktown. There are no records at the National Archives to support this, though it is known that many are not recorded. The Battle of Yorktown occurred just two months before Jonathan's death in 1781 at which time he was "sick and weak of body", which makes it doubtful that he saw active service. Following the death of her husband, Jonathan's widow married a second time to William Pearman. After the death of her second husband, Mary Elizabeth moved to the Abbeville District of South Carolina by 1806." Weldon, Jonathan (I3049)

155 George was a wealthy Justice, High Sheriff and Captain in the Militia. Records from an old diary indicate that this family was closely connected with the royal family of England. Marriage date of July 2nd to Sarah_____ provided by researcher Beverly Waid. George was suspected of murdering Benjamin David and a document filed 7-Jul-1715. The second generation of Worthams in America began with only George to carry on the family name. Immediately after his father's death, George following in family footsteps, plunged into the arena of public service. In 1693, he was selected to serve as a member of the Petit Jury, and one year later, he was serving as an Estate Appraiser. On November 11, 1695, George leased "one good stong house in the County which formerly belonged to the late John Wortham... to the County to be used as a Court House." A small building to be used as a prison along with 40 adjoining acres were to be used by Middlesex County for a period of ten years. George then built himself a new house which boasted six rooms with a separate kitchen. This home was constructed on a slight rise near his father's homeplace which was then serving as the County Court House. Over a period of the next six years, George continued to serve in various sectors of the County government as: constable, jury foreman, surveyor of highways, County Justice and finally, Sheriff. By May of 1704, George was listed in the Court Records as "one of her Majestys Justices for County Middlesex". It was in these same dated records that he was first referred to as Captain George Wortham. This is obviously in regard to his rank obtained as a member of the Middlesex County Militia. On May 3, 1708, George was bound "unto our Sovereign Lady Queen Anne in the sum of 1000 pounds Sterling...and appointed Sheriff." During the first week of December of each year, the Sheriff was to collect public and County levy, duely pay and deliver all levys unto respective County Creditors. In addition to collecting taxes, the Sheriff was to determine the quantity of land in the County and return a perfect Rent Role of the same. In the December meeting of the Vestry of Christ Church, George was sworn in as a member of this prestigious group, a position which he faithfully served for the next twenty-three years. In 1711, he was ordered to be the Church Warden of the Middle Precinct. We have a similar dilemma involving George's' marriages, as we did concerning those of his father. We currently do not know the surnames of his two wives, nor do we know the dates of his marriages. We can only assume that George's' marriages took place in Middlesex County since he owned land and lived there. From the Christ Church Parish Register, we do know that George's first wife was named Sarah and that they had a child, Robert who was born on October 4, 1694. Again clouds of uncertainty hide the facts that would reveal the complete history concerning George's wives. The same Register indicates that on February 5, 1699, a son George was born to George and Mary Wortham. Exactly what happened to Sarah Wortham is unknown but George is now married to Mary...surname unknown. [Interestingly, "The Wortham Connection", published after this dissertation notes that George was suspected of murdering a Benjamin David on July 7, 1715.] George Sr. was 61 years old when he died on April 5, 1734. His death was possibly sudden and unexpected, for he left no will to shed any light on his land holdings and how they were to be dispersed. Three of his sons decided to seek their fortune outside of Middlesex County. From the amount of current research available, it is believed that all three left at some point after their father's death. Without a will, it is uncertain which son inherited George's land. However, it was a common practice in England for the eldest son to fall heir to this portion of the father's estate. Since the colony was still operating under British rule with people of predominantly English descent, we can assume that George Jr. did in fact come to own the Middlesex plantation overlooking the Dragon Run which once belonged to his father. History tells us that by the first quarter of the 18th Century, farmers who had been tilling the Virginia soil for well over one hundred years had severely depleted it of its ability to provide abundant crops as once was possible. By the mid 1700's there were roads which would facilitate travel away from the Eastern Coastal regions of the state. Because travel over the Blue Ridge Mountains was very limited and difficult, most of the early Virginia roads ran North and South. The migration patterns of the various branches of the Wortham family almost exclusively followed the direction of these accessible avenues of movement. Regardless of the precise reason, it was in the third generation of Worthams that a migration away from the Chesapeake Coastal region and Middlesex County, had begun. Wortham, Capt. George (I2008)
 
156 Georgia: Greene County: Slave Charlot to Sarah Holley Butts 26 February 1817 Sarah Holley Butts was the daughter of Jacob Butts and Celia Chivers. Sabrina Chivers Mercer, wife of Rev.Jesse Mercer, is a sister to Celia. She witnessed the birth of both babies and was needed to testify to that fact when Sarah Holley Butts became of age to take possession of Charlot. Jacob Butts had died leaving three children and his wife. Jesse Mercer was the executor of the estate and his uncle John Mercer was the guardian until the children came of age. This deed is most valuable in that it has so far been the only proof to link Sabrina and Celia as siblings. There are also references to Jesse being an uncle to the children in guardianship records. Sarah was born around 1805, the deed is dated 1817 GREENE COUNTY, GA DEEDS DEED BOOK FF, Page 303-304 Personally Came before me one of the justices for Said County Sabrina Mercer and being duley Sworn Saith that on December the Twenty Second day 1806 She was at Mr. Jacob Butts when his wife (her sister) was delivered of a female Child afterwards known by the name of Sarah H.

196 HERNDON HARALSON, citizen of Haywood County, Tennessee, a many-years diarist of that locality mentions the murder of JAMES R. LEA in his diary in September 1845, taking his notes evidently from the Jackson, Tennessee REPUBLICAN, as did the editorial staff of the CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, only writing a longer account of the tragedy. Haralson's account:

A BLOODY TRAGICAL SCENE

Mr. JAMES R. LEA of Haywood County left home on Saturday the 6th of September 1845 and rode up about 10 miles to Brownsville for some money which one Absalom Bostwick had promised to loan him. Bostwick makes him drunk and tells him as he was drunk (Lea) had better give him his bond for five hundred dollars and he would loan him that sum and to come up when sober and he should have the money. Lea consented. The bond was drawn for $9000 instead of $500 as Lea expected and he signed it and a witness signs the acknowledgment without hering the bond read. Lea starts home about dark and rides about a mile and a half when in the dark he meets some person who shoots five rifle balls in his breast, two of which passed through his heart. The corps [sic] of Mr. Lea lay there and was discovered by a negro boy traveling the road next morning who gave the alarm. The coroner was notified who summoned his jury of inquest and reported accordingly. This tragic circumstance produced such excitement as induced the citizens to assemble on Monday the 8th and subscribe a reward for the detention of the murderer. At the same time a vigilant committee was appointed to inquire into this misterious [sic] murder. In five or six days inquiry of this committee, they (it seems) had reason to believe that this Bostwick or his negro man committed the murder. The negro was apprehended and examined who confessed that his master killed Lea and that he was present by the order of his master and mentioned many other circumstances which induced the committee to believe that the negro told the truth. A warrant was issued for Bostwick and he was apprehended. The Atto. Gen'l. was sent for who arrived on the 15th but such was the excitement, the examining court did not sit until the 18th. Court set five days and examined about 40 witnesses. The most of which gave strong circumstantial evidence, and such as induced all who heard it, to believe Bostwick is guilty. Tho nothing positive except the negro (who is no evidence). After the argument by chancellors on the 23rd, the prisoner was committed for his trial in the Circuit Court 4 Monday Oct. 1845. Buy by a writ of Habeas Corpus, he was removed to Raleigh in Shelby County near Memphis where on the 15th, he was acquitted and returned home. It is reported that on his return he wrote to Gen'l. Loving asking whether or not he would be safe to remain in town. Loving advised him to clear out immediately, that his life was in danger and that he accordingly left before day and has not been seen since except by negroes. It is supposed that he is concealed in his own house. Search is made but cannot find him. September [30th?] we are now informed this Absalom Bostwick is now in Texas. His council sues the widow at Nashville. Court of United States. Continued to Nashville court.

Lea, James Rucker (I33)
 
197 Hill (?) Brooks was born in Drew Co., Arkansas in 1876, probobly around the time of his fathers death. He is listed in the 1880 Census as age 4. There is no further record of him. The theory is the same as the other children, that is he probobly died young and is buried somewhere here in Drew Co. Brooks, Hill(?) (I1951)
 
198 His birthdate is in doubt as there are records showing he was living on a plantation with his wife and family as early as 1685 - "Colonial Granville" He died after 1710 in Queen's Creek, York County, Virginia.4 The Williams Family, likely of Welch descent, settled on Queen's Creek in York Co VA prior to 1645. This are was near the line between York and New Kent. This record is in Fleet's "Colonial Abstract" Vol. 24, p.90. John Bell assigned 250 acres in Hampton Parish to John Williams on 1 Oct 1645. The children of this earliest John included John, Nathaniel, William, Randall, Lewis, Daniel, Sarah and Mary. His wife's name is unknown. At a meeting of the York Co Court in Feb of 1688 there was a suit pending between John Williams, plaintiff, and William Clopton, defendant, which was passed over to the next meeting of the court. William Clopton was an important personage, who owned considerable property, both in York and New Kent County and the presence of litigation in the courts initiated against him by John Williams indicates they were probably of about equal standing in the Colony at that period. Williams, John (I1007)
 
199 His only son was named Angus Finlayson b abt 1780 who married Mary Stewart and had four sons and a number of daughters. His sons were John b abt 1809 d likely Autauga Co. AL, Angus b abt 1810, Daniel and Alexander. I am a descendant of John. If this is the Daniel you are speaking of, I would love to know more about him. Nancy Finlayson, Angus (I1724)
 
200 His Spouse was from Jacksonville, Alabama Bedwell, Dock Condy (I214)
