554 This is a direct quote from "The History of Fanklin County, Georgia". No source is offered. Page 34: Payne's Creek - in Old King's Bench of original Franklin County was one of the first streams to be named for a white settler or trader. The creek is short as creeks go in Northeast Georgia, but its source was a large spring which was the trading post and fort of Trader Payne, one of the first traders in the Franklin County area. One of his descendents, an offspring of his Cherokee marriage, later married Moses Ayers whose descendents still live in the county. Gene Madden who was raised not far from the spring remembered that a part of the old fort survived into this century and remembered the carved stone where one drank at the springs. We have recently discovered amongst Col. Payne's papers in the Virginia Library striking (and almost indisputable evidence) that Thomas Payne married to Yanaka did not descend down from the Ralph line of Essex as was originally thought and therefore, did not have a brother named John. His only brother appears to have been William who married Ruth, whose Will was dated 1771 in Pittsylvania County, VA. Instead, it appears that Thomas Payne m. Yanaka descended from the Westmoreland Group whose progenitor was John Payne d. abt 1669 m. Millicent and resided in Westmoreland County VA. Oh, by the way---did you know that our Paynes were Quakers from about 1700 through about the time of the American Revolution? Prior to that, they were with the Church of England. Barb 1. Thomas (Payne) with wife Yanake/Anica who first appears in Hx Co in 1760 where he , William Payne and Nathaniel AYERS laid a road. Yanake's maiden name was Ayers. Thomas moved to Wilkes Co [NC, I think, but maybe GA] in 1778. Will of Nathaniel Ayers of Halifax Co 1777 mentions Daughter Yanake Payne. Please note names Shrewsbury and Poindexter and refer to Elizabeth Poindexter Payne Shrewsbury in genealogy above of family of John Payne of We Co. It's my thought that William Sr.[with Ruth] , John and Thomas [with Yanake] were brothers and sons of Wiliam Payne and Elizabeth Poindexter of Hanover Co. (From Elaine Paine) Ayers, Moses, 7 June 1780, Pittsylvania County, 304 acres on the branches of Sandy River adjoining the land of Roberts, Hard, Payne and c., Book A, p. 357 Ayres, Moses, 1 Feby 1781, Pittsylvania County, 260 acres on the branches of Double Creek adjoining Bird, Payne, Scott and c., Grant Book D., p. 395 Note: This is the brother of Yanaka/Anica Ayers who married Thomas Payne. Moses Ayers was the husband of Abigale Payne, d/of Thomas Payne. Notice that the Bird and Payne mentioned are the same in the WILLIAM PAYNE grant of 6 April 1769. This land obviously bordered that of William Payne. Payne, Thomas, Pittslyvania County, 13 March 1785, 25 acres on Mill Creek of White Thorn adjoining Selton and WILLIAM PAYNES land. Grant Book P. p. 454 Note: believe this to be same Thomas Payne as grant of 1 Sept 1780. Notice that the land adjoined that of William Payne of the 6 April 1769 deed also. I believe this to be Thomas "Trader" Payne and husband of Yanaka Ayers. Obviously, they left Virginia much later than we had at first thought and implies that they went straight from Virginia to Franklin County Georgia rather than stopping off in North Carolina. Son John "Redbank" Payne and a few others must have gone alone to North Carolina. Shortly after 1800 Moses, [Ayers] Sr. moved with his family from NC to Franklin Co., GA, where his brothers, Daniel and Baker, and sister, Yanake AYERS Payne, had already been for several years. In 1805 Moses purchased 233 acres of land along the Tugaloo River in Franklin Co., GA for $400 from Thomas Payne and his wife Yanake. This old deed, (I have a copy) was witnessed by Zebediah Payne and Cleveland Payne, sons of Thomas PAYNE and Yanake AYERS Payne. !TUGALOO: The land was probably bought by Moses, Sr., a brother of Yanake and then about 58 years old. Note: New data from Pat Hoffman says that HOLLANDs and GUEST signed a deed to a tract on Tugaloo River in Pendledton Dist., SC in 1818. Was this part of Pendleton, SC once Franklin Co., GA - early on? I know that GA encompassed Oconee, Pickens and Anderson Counties in SC at one time. The Tugaloo River separated SC from Franklin Co., GA. !SOURCE: DAR Records. He was born in Great Britain; married a full blooded Cherokee woman (also in History of Hart County, GA, and DAR); He stopped on his way south on the Great Wagon Road. New data from Frank Moore has that Trader was born England, spouse unknown. New data from internet on family of an Abigail Payne, daughter of Thomas Payne and wife Euncie (Payne). This Thomas had Richard, Robert, Samuel, Emma, Abigail (who marr. Greenleaf). Their children were born between 1720 and 1762. Perhaps Greenleaf died and this Abigail marr. Ayers?

Whitney of Franklin County to John Blasingame of South Carolina for 2871/2 acres surveyed for Benjamin Dalley Aug. 4, 1784. (Blasingame was probably of Pendleton District, where James and Elizabeth Lindsay sold Aug. 16, 1796, land on the Saluda River, to Thomas Blassingame. The Lindsays moved to Jackson County, Ga., and then sold more land to Thomas Nov. 9, 1797.) Edmond Payne was listed in the 1805 Jackson lottery.

555 Thomas and his wife were 2 od 25 founding members of Cloud Creek Baptist Church. CLOUD'S CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH. In 1785, following the Revolutionary War, pioneers from North Carolina--including the Hendons, Harsfields, Standifers, Johnsons, Lawrences, and Olives --- settled near Big Cloud's Creek on the Georgia frontier near the Creek and Cherokee nations. Olive's Fort was soon constructed and Cloud's Creek Baptist Church was constituted within its walls in 1788. The church was later moved 2 1/2 miles south to its present location on land deeded by Thomas Hendon in 1798. The second and current sanctuary on the new site was constructed in 1909 and continues in use today". Dr. Johnson was a soldier and officer in the Revolutionary War, and was a man of prominence and influence in his day. He moved to GA from NC before the War. He died in 1805, and his will is recorded in Oglethorpe Co., GA. The will shows that he had eleven (11) children; two sons and nine daughters. The will was executed 5 Sept. 1803 and probated 13 Feb. 1805. Witnesses were John and William Ogilvie and William M. Stokes. Executors were Henry and James Johnson. At his death, his children were all of age, and his daughters married. Col. Elijah Clark, writing 2 feb. 1784: "Thomas Johnson was an inhabitant of this state (GA) prior to the reduction thereof by British arms and was a refugee from the same, during which time he cheerfully did his duty as a lieutenant and Friend to this State and to the United States." After Augusta was captured by the British, all of the inhabitanted portions of northeast GA, then called Wilkes Co, but which included Oglethorpe, Elbert and Hart (as we know them) was all overun by the British, and on account of the violence of the British and the Tories, all the patriots had to seek refuge by leaving their homes, carrying their women and children with them, seeking refuge away beyond the mountains in NC and TN. These refugees were in the charge fo Col. Clarke, as officer in command. After having placed their women and children in safety, the men worked their way secretly back to GA in various bands, but accompanied by their officers and organized to meet and fight the enemy of Tories principally. In this way, the BATTLE OF KETTLE CREEK was planned and carried into effect by a decisive victory over the enemy. Col. Clarke was in command of the patrior forces, Col. James Jackson being next in command.

556 Thomas Bedwell was the oldest son of Robert Bedwell. He owned considerable acreage and (like his father) very active in polotics. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1697 and a member of the Pennsylvania Govenor's Council from Kent Co in 1700. Kent and two other Delaware Counties (New Castle and Sussex-called "Lower Counties") were part of a Pennsylvania at the time. Thomas was also at times Kent Co Appraiser, Tax Collector, High Sheriff, Justice and from 1710 to his death in 1717 Associate Justice of Sussex County Supreme Court in Lewes, DE. He inherited the bulk of his father's estate. Bedwell, Thomas (I119)
 
557 Thomas is belived to be the son of John C Black. I also believe that when John Black moved to Alabama around 1852 that Thomas moved with them and when John died in 1854 that Thomas then moved his family to Arkansas. Thomas enlisted in the Confederate Army on August 1, 1861 in Little Rock, Arkansas. He enlisted for the war but was discharched on June 17, 1862 in Corinth, Mississippi. Black, Thomas A (I1341)

562 VIRGINIA TITHABLES FROM BURNED RECORD COUNTIES, Robert F. Woodson and Isobel B. Woodson, 1970. Richard Brookes, Stafford Co., 1768, 180 acres. Will written 3 Oct 1789 and probated April 1790. Names beloved wife Ann Brookes and leaves her one third that is to be equally divided among the four youngest children at her death: William Bird Brookes, Betsy Brookes, Frances Armisted Brooks, and John Brookes. Dau: Ann Smith Graves. Exec: Ann Brookes, and son-in-law Solomon Graves. Caswell Co Deed Book T, p.92-4. Deed of trust from James Shapard of Orange Co to Jeremiah Lea of Caswell includes 400 acres on County Line & Stoney Creeks adjacent Alexander Kerr or so much of this tract as willed by Richard Brooks, dec'd to his son John Brooks. 18 Jul 1818. Richard BROOKES and Ann [BROOKES] were married. May have been Richard's second wife. First child almost too old to have been this Ann's child. Ann [BROOKES] was born about 1755.1 She died before Jan 1808 in Caswell County, North Carolina.1 Inventory of Estate January Court 1808. May have been Ann Armistead, daughter of Robert & Catharine, born Gloucester Co VA Sep 12 1756. Caswell Co NC 1800 Census: Ann Brookes, head of household, age 26-45, 1m 10-16 (John); 1m 16-26 (Wm Bird); 1f 16-26 (Frances). If Ann's age is correct in this census she would have been very young when daughter Ann Smith was born - possibly Richard was married earlier? Left Will in 1808 leaving her estate to her grandchildren. Nothing was left to the children of Ann Smith (Brooks) Graves. Another possible suggestion this Ann was not the mother of Ann Smith. There was also no mention of Betsy or John; probably both deceased. William B. was executor. Sale of her estate was held in February of 1808; proceeds were 135.0.10. Many of the articles bought by William B. & Jonathan Brooks. Caswell Co Original Estates. CR.020.508.8. Ann Brooks. 1808. Brookes, Richard (I2341)

Nichols' death was passed down through John's grandson, Reubin Nichols of Wing, AL. William Nichols died around 1865 of small pox. Smallpox was supposed to have been brought back from the war by his son-in-law. William may have been buried in the Hog Foot Cemetery near Andalusia. This cemetery is believed to have been destroyed since then. William is known to have brothers Kinchen Ellis Nichols of Pike County, and a cousin Joel Nichols of Crenshaw (whose father is unknown). Their reported father is a Conrad Gunrod Nichols. However, no written records of this name have been located to date. Reportedly he died fairly young near Old 96 District SC and fought in Indian Wars. Elizabeth HANCHEY Nichols, (daughter of Daniel HANCHEY and Sarah RICE) was born on 14 Oct 1814 in North Carolina.
