Store Norske Leksikon Berent Johan Beyer Friele

Forretningsmann. Foreldre: Forretningsmann Berent Friele (1862–1902) og Dagny Stockfleth Høegh Beyer (1869–1963). Gift i Rio de Janeiro, Brasil 29.12.1920 med Jenny Müller Camps (29.12.1897–januar 1985), datter av konsul og kjøpmann Edvard Müller og Jenny Camps. Sønnesønn av Herman Friele (1838–1921); dattersønn av Fredrik Beyer (1827–1903); fetter av Harald Beyer (1891–1960).

Berent Friele var USAs største kaffeimportør og virket som Nelson A. Rockefellers rådgiver i internasjonale spørsmål. Han høstet stor anerkjennelse for sin innsats som “USAs faste uoffisielle ambassadør i Brasil”.

Frieles far var fra 1898 medeier i firmaet Berent Friele & Sønner, et av de ledende grossistforetak i Bergen med kaffe fra eget brenneri som en av de viktigste artiklene. Faren døde allerede 1902, og unge Berent var eslet til en toppstilling i familiefirmaet, som hadde importert kaffe siden 1854. Han skulle i sitt yrkesaktive liv komme til å stelle mye med kaffe, men ikke i familiefirmaet.

Etter endt skolegang drog Berent Friele til Hamburg 1912, fullførte sin handelsutdannelse der og arbeidet på kontoret til et firma i kaffebransjen. Under den første verdenskrig gikk ferden til Brasil, og etter en kort tid i et tysk kaffefirmas tjeneste etablerte han sitt eget kaffefirma i Santos. Her skaffet han seg sine omfattende kunnskaper om kaffedyrking, kvalitetsbedømmelse av råvaren og internasjonal kaffehandel.

Det gylne øyeblikk i Frieles karriere kom 1918, da han under et besøk i New York kom i kontakt med den største amerikanske kjedeforretningen i kolonialbransjen, The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company (A&P). Etter først å ha fått i oppdrag å forestå innkjøpene av kaffe i Santos for denne kjeden, ble han 1919 ansatt i et av datterselskapene. Han grunnla American Coffee Corporation (ACC) og opprettet kontorer for selskapet i store deler av den kaffeproduserende verden. Fra 1924 var han leder av ACCs hovedkontor i New York, to år senere ble han generaldirektør og visepresident i selskapet, og fra 1929 var han selskapets president og visepresident i morselskapet, A&P.

I begynnelsen av 1930-årene hadde A&P 16 000 utsalgssteder i USA og Canada. Særlig sterkt stod kjeden på østkysten av USA. Som leder av ACC importerte han 15 % av USAs kaffeforbruk, dvs. 5 % av verdensforbruket. Berent Friele var på dette tidspunkt verdens største kaffekjøper. Etter den annen verdenskrig avsluttet han sin karriere i American Coffee Corporation, og han tok ikke imot tilbudet, som han etter sigende fikk på sine eldre dager, om å bli president i A&P.

Friele gjorde en stor innsats for å styrke forbindelsene mellom USA og de latinamerikanske statene, særlig Brasil. Fra 1934 var han president i American Brazilian Association. Hans posisjon i Brasil gjorde ham til en effektiv døråpner, noe også Norge nøt godt av i forhandlingene om clearingavtalene med Brasil i 1930-årene, som innebar bytte av kaffe mot norsk klippfisk. Som direksjonsmedlem i Det norske handelskammer i New York kunne han yte norsk næringsliv mange tjenester. Han spilte også en viktig rolle i organiseringen av samarbeidet mellom de kaffeproduserende landene som i løpet av mellomkrigstiden ledet frem til et prisstabiliserende kvotesystem.

Kontakten på topplanet i Brasil klarte Friele å bevare på tross av regimeskiftene som fulgte av de hyppige politiske omveltningene i landet. Hans intime kjennskap til Latin-Amerika, først og fremst til Brasil og Colombia, og hans omfattende kontaktnett gjorde ham til en viktig rådgiver ved utformingen av USAs latinamerikapolitikk. Allerede 1940 tok han permisjon fra forretningen for å tjenestegjøre hos Nelson A. Rockefeller i Federal Office of Inter-American Affairs. Dette ble innledningen til et tett og livslangt samarbeid mellom de to.

Fra 1946 viet Friele hele sin tid til ulike organisasjoner som skulle fremme forståelse og samarbeid mellom USA og statene i Latin-Amerika og dels også yte utviklingsbistand. Flere av disse organisasjonene var etablert og finansiert av Rockefeller-brødrene. Da Rockefeller ble valgt til guvernør i New York 1958, knyttet han Berent Friele til seg som rådgiver i internasjonale spørsmål. Den posisjonen hadde han i hele Rockefellers tid både som guvernør og som USAs visepresident. Friele var også medlem av Council on Foreign Relations, som i en lang periode etter den annen verdenskrig hadde en innflytelsesrik rolle i utformingen av USAs utenrikspolitikk.

Berent Friele fikk flere utmerkelser både i USA og Brasil. 1932 ble han ridder av 1. klasse av St. Olavs Orden “for hans fortjeneste for Norges deltagelse i vinterolympiaden i Lake Placid 1932”. Kilder og litteratur

HISTORY OF ECHOLS FAMILY by MILNER ECHOLS 1850

A short history of our family from the first that landed in America till the present time, as far as I can ascertain----.

John Echols an Englishman came to America about the end of the 16th or the beginning of the 17th Century and settled in Caroline County, Virginia, and married a tall redheaded woman named Mary Cave and by her had five sons and three daughters. I shall begin with his sons first and carry out their family as far as my knowledge extends.

John was his first son who left Virginia a young man and settled in the lower part of N. Carolina and raised his family, of whom I know nothing.

Abraham was old John’s 2nd son, married Sarah Tamer and by her had two sons and several daughters. His sons were Joseph and Joshua. Joseph married a Miss King, and by her had 2 sons and 5 or 6 daughters. His sons Abraham and Jeremiah who left Virginia in time of the Revolutionary War and went to Pennsylvania. Of their offspring I know nothing. Joshua married Hannah Brown, had a number of children of whom I know but little. He had one son Darius, a conspicuous man in Habersham County, GA. The rest of his family lives chiefly in the upper part of Georgia. Old Abraham had one daughter who married James Hodges a very worthy man, his family moved to Tennessee. He had one son named Jessee and he had a son named James who was a commanding officer in Tennessee and got drowned in Cumberland River near Cairo. Jessee had one daughter named Tabitha, that is all I know of the family. Old Abraham had another daughter named Sarah who married John Rowden and by her had 4 sons and one daughter. His sons were Abraham, Laban, Josee, and John. Abraham married a woman named Chick, moved to Tennessee. I know nothing of his family. Laban married Milly Adams raised a large family. I know nothing of them only two of his sons to wit, Hubert and Lot, who live in Guinett County, Ga. Josee married Susannah Adams, moved to Tennessee, of his family I know nothing. John married Milly Brewer, a widow, the daughter of old Jeremiah Reeves, sister to Rev. Malachi Reeves and Rev. Jeremiah Reeves. He also moved to Tennessee and was drowned in the Tennessee River. Of his family I know nothing. Old John Rowden’s daughter was Tabitha. She married Glover Crain, had several children by her and then died. He had one son named Joseph Crane who married a Miss Hood. They had several children, one son named John Glover Crane who was a wholesale merchant in Charleston, S.C.Joshua Crane had a daughter married a Mr.Whitman, a Baptist preacher and a teacher in the Penfield Academy, Green County, Georgia.
P.S. James Hodges daughter married John Lacy. Wm Glass and Hally Shaw Lacy had one son named Elijah and he and wife parted. Glass had 5 sons and 3 daughters. His sons were Hubbard, Mason, Frederick who married Betsy Strother and he was killed by the Indians in Alabama. The other three, David, Elish and Eahlij Mason married a Miss Wyatt and lives in Fayett County, Georgia the rest of his sons I know nothing. His daughters were named Tabitha, Patsy, and Sally. Tabitha married Richard Wood and by him had three sons and one daughter. Her sons were Winston, William and Willis. Her son William represented three different counties in the state of Georgia and was Colo. Of the same counties. He then moved to Randolph County, Alabama and represented that county and is Colo. And judge of the court.
Willis, her third son married a Miss Cochran and died young. Richard Wood’s daughter was named Elizabeth and married Samuel D. Echols. Hally Shaw raised a large family in Jackson County, Georgia. I know nothing of his family only E. B. Shaw, his grandson, who lives in Guynett County, and is a very eminent Baptist preacher.

P. S. If I mistake not, old Abraham Echols had a daughter who married a man by the name of Hubbard in Virginia. I know nothing further of them.

The third son of old English John Echols was named William. I don’t know who he married. He had several sons and daughters. His sons were John and William. John was one of the largest men ever raised in Virginia. He was a Quaker preacher. That’s all I know of him or his family as I never saw him but once. William was also a very large man, married a widow Spradlin. By her had three sons and four daughters. His sons were Joel, Elcanah, and William. Joel and Elcanah moved to Tennessee. Settled on Cumberland River near Caro. I was once at Elcanah’s house after his death. He had a large family. I know the names of none of them only his youngest son named Richard. They are a very wealthy family. Joel I think they told me had no child. William, the third son, married a girl by the name of Elizabeth Farmer - a schoolmate of mine in Virginia. He moved to Alabama, settled in Madison County near Huntsville and was a very great wholesale merchant in that town. I know but very little of his family. He had a daughter married Richard Holden also a wholesale merchant in Huntsville and also had two sons who moved to Mississippi. One of them was killed by a man and the other wrote to me about it. I think the one that wrote was by the name of Larkin. The one that was killed I think was by the name of Joseph. That’s all that I know of that family.

Old William Echols daughters married William Wynne, Vardre McBee and Daniel Williams and Richard Anderson. Of Wynne’s family I know nothing as they moved to Tennessee in an early date. Old Vardre McBee moved from Virginia to South Carolina before the Revolutionary War and was a Capt. In that army and was said to have done as much damage to the British and Torries in that part of the country as any Capt. In that country. He had two sons, to wit, Silas and Vardre. Silas was a very large man, went to Mississippi and died there. I know nothing of his family. Vardre still lives in South Carolina, Greenville District.

Daniel Williams, who married the third daughter of old William Echols, went to Tennessee, raised his family there. Of his daughters I know nothing. His sons were Sampson and Oliver. Sampson was said to be an uncommon smart man, represented his county many years. There is a very fine town in Tennessee named in hone of his name - Williamsburg. Sampson Williams was a very large man, rather cross-eyed. Richard Anderson married old William Echols fourth daughter, had five children by her and she died. I know the names of two of their sons, which were Medy and John. Medy became very rich, owned the first merchant mill I ever saw, on Banister River in Virginia, where was a considerable town built named Medsville in honor of Medy Anderson’s name. They both had families of which I know but little.

Joseph Echols was the fourth son of old English John Echols. He never married, consequently had no family. He was an afflicted man, had what was called the asthma which prevented him from lying down. He never lay down for forty years-had an instrument made that fitted his forehead and sat and slept.

He got every vote that was given in the county and the county was very large. He continued to go to the legislature as long as he stayed in Virginia. He then moved to Georgia, Wilkes County. He became a representative of Wilkes County in Senate and was once appointed President Senate pro tem - you can see his name in the digest of the laws of Georgia. He became so fat that it was supposed by the doctors that his fat melted in him, killed him before he was sixty years old. He weighed nearly four hundred pounds.

Richard S. Forrest is the son of Abraham Forrest b.1675 in Nottoway Parish, Amelia, VA.

Elizabeth Cheesman was probably born in England around 1630. Children of Henry and Elizabeth are: John and Edmond.

Ann Long was born ca 1650 probably in VA. She is the daughter of Richard Long b. ca 1620 probably in England and Sarah English who was born ca 1620 probably in England. A Richard Long, born 1591 in England died in the Isle of Wight, VA. He married an Alice who was born 1601 in England. This Richard had issue:Robert.

Same; and so without material change, the
daily record of wind, weather, and the
ship's general course—the repetition of

—continued through the month and until the
vessel was near half the seas over. Fine
warm weather and the "harvest-moon." The
usual equinoctial weather deferred.

SATURDAY, Sept. 23/Oct. 3 One of the seamen, some time sick with a
grievous disease, died in a desperate manner.
The first death and burial at sea of the
voyage.



[We can readily imagine this first burial at sea on the MAY FLOWER,
and its impressiveness. Doubtless the good Elder "committed the
body to the deep" with fitting ceremonial, for though the young man
was of the crew, and not of the Pilgrim company, his reverence for
death and the last rites of Christian burial would as surely impel
him to offer such services, as the rough, buccaneering Master (Jones
would surely be glad to evade them).

MONDAY Nov. 6/16

Samuel Fuller, died. The first of the
passengers to die on this voyage.

MONDAY Nov. 9/19
Must be Thursday
Closing in with the land at nightfall.
Sighted land at daybreak. The landfall
made out to be Cape Cod the bluffs [in what
is now the town of Truro, Mass.]. After a
conference between the Master of the ship
and the chief colonists, tacked about and
stood for the southward. Wind and weather
fair. Made our course S.S.W., continued
proposing to go to a river ten leagues
south of the Cape Hudson's River. After
had sailed that course about half the day
fell amongst dangerous shoals and foaming
breakers [the shoals off Monomoy] got out of
them before night and the wind being
contrary put round again for the Bay of
Cape Cod. Abandoned efforts to go further
south and so announced to passengers.

[Bradford (Historie, Mass. ed. p. 93) says: "They resolved to bear
up again for the Cape." No one will question that Jones's assertion
of inability to proceed, and his announced determination to return
to Cape Cod harbor, fell upon many acquiescent ears, for, as Winslow
says: "Winter was come; the seas were dangerous; the season was
cold; the winds were high, and the region being well furnished for a
plantation, we entered upon discovery." Tossed for sixty-seven days
on the north Atlantic at that season of the year, their food and
firing well spent, cold, homesick, and ill, the bare thought of once
again setting foot on any land, wherever it might be, must have been
an allurement that lent Jones potential aid in his high-handed
course.]


SATURDAY Nov. 11/21
Comes in with light, fair wind. On course
for Cape Cod harbor, along the coast. Some
hints of disaffection among colonists, on
account of abandonment of location



[Bradford (in Mourt's Relation) says: "This day before we come to
harbor Italics the author's, observing some not well affected to
unity and concord, but gave some appearance of faction, it was
thought good there should be an Association and Agreement that we
should combine together in one body; and to submit to such
Government and Governors as we should, by common consent, agree to
make and choose, and set our hands to this that follows word for
word." Then follows the Compact. Bradford is even more explicit in
his Historie (Mass. ed. p. 109), where he says: "I shall a little
returne backe and begin with a combination made by them before they
came ashore, being ye first foundation of their governments in this
place; occasioned partly by ye discontent & mutinous speeches that
some of the strangers amongst them [i.e. not any of the Leyden
contingent had let fall from them in ye ship—That when they came
ashore they would use their owne libertie: for none had power to
command them, the patents they had being for Virginia, and not for
New-England which belonged to another Government, with which ye
London [or First Virginia Company had nothing to doe, and partly
that such an acte by them done . . . might be as firm as any
patent, and in some respects more sure." Dr. Griffis is hardly
warranted in making Bradford to say, as he does (The Pilgrims in
their Three Homes, p. 182), that "there were a few people I
'shuffled' in upon them the company who were probably unmitigated
scoundrels." Bradford speaks only of Billington and his family as
those "shuffled into their company," and while he was not improbably
one of the agitators (with Hopkins) who were the proximate causes of
the drawing up of the Compact, he was not, in this case, the
responsible leader. It is evident from the foregoing that the
"appearance of faction" did not show itself until the vessel's prow
was turned back toward Cape Cod Harbor, and it became apparent that
the effort to locate "near Hudson's River" was to be abandoned, and
a location found north of 41 degrees north latitude, which would
leave them without charter rights or authority of any kind. It is
undoubtedly history that Master Stephen Hopkins,—then "a
lay-reader" for Chaplain Buck,—on Sir Thomas Gates's expedition to
Virginia, had, when some of them were cast away on the Bermudas,
advocated just such sentiments—on the same basis—as were now
bruited upon the MAY-FLOWER, and it could hardly have been
coincidence only that the same were repeated here. That Hopkins
fomented the discord is well-nigh certain. It caused him, as
elsewhere noted, to receive sentence of death for insubordination,
at the hands of Sir Thomas Gates, in the first instance, from which
his pardon was with much difficulty procured by his friends. In the
present case, it led to the drafting and execution of the Pilgrim
Compact, a framework of civil self-government whose fame will never
die; though the author is in full accord with Dr. Young (Chronicles,
p. 120) in thinking that "a great deal more has been discovered in
this document than the signers contemplated,"—wonderfully
comprehensive as it is. Professor Herbert B. Adams, of Johns
Hopkins University, says in his admirable article in the Magazine of
American History, November, 1882 (pp—798 799): "The fundamental
idea of this famous document was that of a contract based upon the
common law of England,"—certainly a stable and ancient basis of
procedure. Their Dutch training (as Griffis points out) had also
led naturally to such ideas of government as the Pilgrims adopted.
It is to be feared that Griffis's inference (The Pilgrims in their
Three Homes, p. 184), that all who signed the Compact could write,
is unwarranted. It is more than probable that if the venerated
paper should ever be found, it would show that several of those
whose names are believed to have been affixed to it "made their
'mark.'" There is good reason, also, to believe that neither
"sickness" (except unto death) nor "indifference" would have
prevented the ultimate obtaining of the signatures (by "mark," if
need be) of every one of the nine male servants who did not
subscribe, if they were considered eligible. Severe illness was, we
know, answerable for the absence of a few, some of whom died a few
days later.

The fact seems rather to be, as noted, that age—not social status
was the determining factor as to all otherwise eligible. It is
evident too, that the fact was recognized by all parties (by none so
clearly as by Master Jones) that they were about to plant themselves
on territory not within the jurisdiction of their steadfast friends,
the London Virginia Company, but under control of those formerly of
the Second (Plymouth) Virginia Company, who (by the intelligence
they received while at Southampton) they knew would be erected into
the "Council for the Affairs of New England." Goodwin is in error
in saying (Pilgrim Republic, p. 62), "Neither did any other body
exercise authority there;" for the Second Virginia Company under Sir
Ferdinando Gorges, as noted, had been since 1606 in control of this
region, and only a week before the Pilgrims landed at Cape Cod (i.e.
on November 3) King James had signed the patent of the Council for
New England, giving them full authority over all territory north of
the forty-first parallel of north latitude, as successors to the
Second Virginia Company. If the intention to land south of the
forty-first parallel had been persisted in, there would, of course,
have been no occasion for the Compact, as the patent to John Pierce
(in their interest) from the London Virginia Company would have been
in force. The Compact became a necessity, therefore, only when they
turned northward to make settlement above 41 deg. north latitude.
Hence it is plain that as no opportunity for "faction"—and so no
occasion for any "Association and Agreement"—existed till the
MAY-FLOWER turned northward, late in the afternoon of Friday,
November to, the Compact was not drawn and presented for signature
until the morning of Saturday, November 11. Bradford's language,
"This day, before we came into harbour," leaves no room for doubt
that it was rather hurriedly drafted—and also signed—before noon
of the 11th. That they had time on this winter Saturday—hardly
three weeks from the shortest day in the year—to reach and
encircle the harbor; secure anchorage; get out boats; arm, equip,
and land two companies of men; make a considerable march into the
land; cut firewood; and get all aboard again before dark, indicates
that they must have made the harbor not far from noon. These facts
serve also to correct another error of traditional Pilgrim history,
which has been commonly current, and into which Davis falls
(Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth, p. 60), viz. that the Compact was
signed "in the harbor of Cape Cod." It is noticeable that the
instrument itself simply says, "Cape Cod," not "Cape Cod harbour,"
as later they were wont to say. The leaders clearly did not mean
to get to port till there was a form of law and authority.]

Bio
Mary Norris was probably about 30 years old when she came to Plymouth on the Mayflower in 1620, estimated from the known age of her husband, and on her known marriage date. She married Isaac Allerton in Leiden, Holland in 1611, one of the first marriages amongst the Pilgrims after they had fled to Holland from England. Her marriage record indicates she was from Newbury, perhaps Newbury, Berkshire, England. She had children Bartholomew, Remember and Mary in Leiden, all of whom came on the Mayflower with her. She and Isaac buried a child, not yet named, at St. Peters, Leiden on 5 February 1620, and she gave birth to a stillborn son ten months later, on board the Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor, on 22 December 1620.
Mary died on 25 February 1621, during the height of the first winter when half the Mayflower passengers and crew died. Her husband Isaac, and her three children Bartholomew, Remember, and Mary, all survived, however. Isaac would later remarry to Fear Brewster, daughter of Plymouth's Elder William Brewster.

Biographical Summary Mary Allerton

Biographical Summary

Mary Allerton was born about 1616 in Leiden, Holland, to parents Isaac and Mary (Norris) Allerton. She came to Plymouth on the Mayflower in 1620, at about the age of four. Around 1636, she married Thomas Cushman. Thomas had come to Plymouth at the age of 13 on the ship Fortune in 1621 with father Robert Cushman, a prominent member of the Pilgrims' congregation in Leiden. Thomas and Mary had a surprisingly prosperous family: seven of their eight children survived to adulthood, got married, and provided at least 50 grandchildren. Thomas and Mary both lived to very old age, having never moved from Plymouth. Thomas died in December 1691, nearly reaching 85 years in age. Mary, who gave birth to and raised eight children, lived to the age of 83. Prior to her death in November 1699, she was the last surviving Mayflower passenger.

Chalk Family of England & America: 1066-1942

In the Chalk Family book, page 68, Jacob Rutledge and two others have been bonded to serve as administrators in the estate of John Chalk on 25 Sep 1810. On pages 77 and 78 a number of dees passed from Chocke family members to the Rutledges including: Bennett Chocke to John W Rutledge in 1826, 1827, and 1828; John, George, Tudor, Mary, Margaret, and Sarah Chocke to Abraham Rutledge in 1784; and Tudor Chalk to Jacob Rutledge in 1814. On page 80 reference is made to a note received from Oran Lee Chalk dated April 1942 that gave the following information: "In the history of Harford County, Maryland, Charles Bakers Company No. 15, Maryland Militia, raised to fight the British for freedon, in the roster under date of January 27, 1776, we find the names of John Chalk and George Chalk." In this same history by Preston: "Ruffs Chance was one half a square mile in area and was patented in 1714 by Richard Ruff. Part of the house near Upper Cross Roads was occupied by John Randolph Rutledge and was erected before the time of the Revolution when the property was purchased by Abraham Rutledge, (father of Ignatius Wheeler?). The house was built by a man named Jacob Rutledge who married Monica, daughter of Colonel Chalk. Incidentally, the Rutledges, Hollands, and Stephensons were related." John Rutledge transported himself to this country in 1640." In Preston History of Harford County, Maryland, 1901. Ruffs Chance was one square mile in area and was patented in 1714 by Richard Ruff. Part of the house near upper Cross Roads now occupied by Mr. John Randolph Rutledge, was erected before the time of the Revolution when the property was purchased by Abraham Rutledge, father of Ignatius Wheeler. The house was built by a man named Jacob Rutledge, who married Monica, daughter of Col. Chalk. The name as shown in the book is Col. Ignatius Wheeler. Further on in the history of Col. Wheeler it says: The farm called Garden Spot, belonging to the late Joshua Rutledge, near the rocks of Deer Creek, belonged to Col. Wheeler who was an ancestor of Mr. Rutledge. John Rutledge was a member of the Grand Jury 1798, Overseer from Thos. Bonds on the Little falls of the Gunpowder to upper Cross Roads. William Rutledge enrolled by Lieut. Asell Hitchcock, July 25, 1776. Col. Ignatius Wheeler, a very prominent man in Harford County, who liveed on his estate called Deer Park. He was first Lieutenant of Comp 16, Harford Militia. Besides Deer Park, Col. Wheeler owned the estate called Belle Farm. A large portion of the Belle Farm is now owned by the Jenkins and McAtee families, who are direct descendants of Col. Wheeler. In the Maryland legislature of 1786, 1787 Col. Wheeler was one of the delegates from Harford County. He died on his estate, Deer Park, August 1793 and his will is dated dated July 13, 1793. Recorded in office Register of Wills, Harford County, Liber., A. J. R. Folio, 217. His children were Monica, who married Jacob Rutledge, whose decendants are now living in Harford County. Rutledges, Stephensons, and Hollands. John W. Rutledge and Ignatius Rutledge were her sons. Anopther child Teresa married Capt. Henry McAtee, Henrietta remained single. Mary Ann (Polly) married Samuel Brown who after her death married her sister Elizabeth.

Crow's Nest

The land comprising Crow’s Nest was originally granted to Col. Gerard Fowke. In 1662, Raleigh Travers received a patent for 3,540 acres on Potomac Creek, encompassing what is now the heart of Crow’s Nest. A large brick house, “Crow’s Nest,” was built on a high ridge that paralleled Potomac Creek. The home was named after The Crow, a black sailing ship owned by the Travers family. It was harbored in Potomac Creek.
Peter Daniel (1706-1777) married Sarah Travers (1717-1788), daughter of Raleigh Travers. An advocate of freedom from England, he was the first to sign a protest against the Stamp Act. The Daniels family cemetery is located in Crow’s Nest, close to Crow’s Nest point. President Martin Van Buren was a friend of Peter Vivian Daniel, and may have visited the area.

Early parishes and hundreds, Baltimore County, Md., including tax lists, years 1692, 1694, 1695

Two source citations from Early parishes and hundreds, Baltimore County, Md., including tax lists, years 1692, 1694, 1695 show a connection between Edward Rutledge (Rutlidge) and John Ferry. In 1670 John Boreing transported his daughter Ann Boreing, along with several other men to Maryland as colonists, one of whom was Edward Rutledge (Rutlidge). Edward R. married Ann B. Ann Boreing's parents are John Boreing and Anne Sawyer. After John Boreing's death, his wife marries John Ferry. The above source citation shows tax lists with Edward Rutledge listed under John Ferry. I'm not sure why, but perhaps Edward and wife Ann B. are renting from Ann's mother now remarried to John Ferry. John 2 Boreing died in 1690, a few years before these tax records. John Ferry died in 1698.

Excerpt from "Pittsylvania's Eighteenth Century Grist Mills" by Herman Melton

page 102-105

JEREMIAH WHITE: PATRIARCH MILLER ON SWEETING'S FORK

Three Sweeting brothers entered grants of land along the Banister River in 1748. It was from these early settlers that Sweden's Fork, as the waterway is now called, got its name. Jeremiah White called it "Sweeting Fork, a branch of Sandy Creek," when he wrote his will in April of 1788. This branch heads up on the south slope of White Oak Mountain near Chestnut Level. It is the mniddle branch of the creek and is joined by John's Run at a point a few hundred yards from its confluence with Sandy Creek of the Banister. This location is approximately three miles southeast of the village of Spring Garden.

Some distinguished patriots of the Revolution lived along the banks of Sweeting Fork. Among them were Nathaniel Terry, who was a member of the Pittsylvania County Militia during the Revolution. His father, Benjamin, lived on Sweeting's Fork, and Nathaniel may have been born there. Colonel Robert Williams had holdings on that branch also. In the Colonel's property was a grist mill and over five thousand acres of land. Williams was one of the most prominent Pittsylvania County patriots during the Revolution. Since he was a lawyer before the founding of the county, and a planter with enormous wealth, milling was not his chief pursuit. Nevertheless, Patsy, one of his daughters, married into a milling family when she married John Henry, one of the owners of Henry's Mill on the Sandy Creek of the Banister.

From the sale of inherited land by Jeremiah's son William, the historian learns that Matthew Clay, who served in the Virginia House of Delegates and in the United States Congress, was a neighboring landowner. Although Clay was a distinguished public servant, who was at least partly responsible for the founding of the Town of Danville at Wynne's Falls, his career was overshadowed by that of Henry Clay of Kentucky who descended from the same family.

Jeremiah White moved to the Sweeting's Fork area from Dinwiddie County in 1778. He filed a petition to erect a grist mill on the waterway in August of 1782 -- "he being the owner of the land on both sides." The move was made during the Revolution, and that would have been the most difficult of times. Jeremiah was in declining years by this time, but county records show that a Jeremiah White served as a member of the County Militia during the Revolution. He was to die ten years later, but managed to accumulate 2108 acres of land on six tracts in the county, most of which was presumably on Sweeting's Fork. He left the use of his land to his wife and named sons William and Jeremiah as Executors.

County records show Jeremiah White to be a very prominent citizen. He was commissioned First Lieutenant of the Militia in the County and took the Oath of Allegiance in October of 1780. White was a charter member of Pittsylvania Lodge No. 24, of the Order of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons when it was constituted on September 15, 1788. He was named Justice of Peace in 1780, and qualified as Coroner on March 15, 1787. It was common practice in the early days for prominent men in the communities to qualify as Deputy Sheriff. Jeremiah White did likewise on May 16, 1786.

His son, Jeremiah Jr., rose to the rank of Captain in the Militia in 1794 before being elected to the office of Commisioner of Revenue in 1798.

Old Jeremiah was one of the landed people who owned slaves and was sometime granted exemption from paying property taxes on them. From County Court records, it appears that slaveowners were often exempted thusly when they furnished "tithables" (laborers in this case) for the buildling and repairing of roads, bridges, public buildings, etc.

A Jeremiah White diary would make interesting reading. However, as is the case with the histories of most of the early pioneers, there is a paucity of records. Even so, there is at least one trait which characterizes Jeremiah White. He wa a loyal family man who loved his children and went to any extreme to be fair. This assessment is based on the wording in his will. One can see the effort he went to in trying to divide his estate equally among his heirs.

There were eight children in Jeremiah and Jane White's family. One was a daughter who married a prominent county leader, politician, planter, businessman and miller known as Col. Clark. William Clark. He lived some seven miles east of Competition in the elegant high columned home he called "Pineville", near the Banister River. His wife was the daughter of a miller, married a miller, and gave birth to a daughter who married a miller. The daughter, Lettice, married Col. Leonard Claiborne who applied to build two mills in the county during the late 1820s and early 1830s. One was on "Sawyer's Mill Creek" and one was on Burch Creek. It is known that he operated one of them for awhile, since the name "Claiborne's Mill" appears on a batteaux manifest of the Roanoke Navigation Company during the 1830s. It was not unusual to find three generations of millers in one family in Pittsylvania County during the 19th cCentury.

Jeremiah White's will was written on April 28, 1788. The will included the following dispositions of his property:

A. He left the use of his "Manner" (manor) house to his wife, Jane, for her natural life "to enable her to educate my younger children." He left seven slaves to her and the use of all land and slaves bequeathed to younger children until they "become of age".

B. One half interest in a tract of land was mentioned. It was a parcel he acquired in an agreeement in which he was to share ownership with the "Conway orphans." This was a strange arrangement which defies understanding.

C. The share of any living child who preceded him in death was to be divided equally among all living children upon his (Jeremiah's) death.

D. He defined the boundaries of the land each child was to receive. This provision gives historians the identity of his neighbors which included the aforementioned families of Terry, Clay and Williams.

E. There was a division of some four hundred acres in Charlotte County.

The disposition of the grist mill became the most interesting and poignant provision in the will. He driected that interest in it should be divided equally between "my two sons, William and Jeremiah, to them and their heirs forever, subject to the following encumbrances, to Wit: As my children have laboured hard with me in assisting to build said mill, I am desirous to give them some privilege therein, but hope this privilege may never become a bone of contention between them, but as a recompence for their labour and dutiful behaviour. It is my will and desire that all my children be entitled for their own families to grind their grain to be free and they bare an equal share of all expenses in keeping the said mill in repair." He also directed that ten acres of land be set aside for the mill.

This will, one of the most carefully crafted wills in early Pittsylvania County history, was proven on May 19, 1788 -- a mere fortnight before the Virginia Constitution Ratification Convention in Richmond. Col. Robert Williams, one of his closest neighbors, was duly elected, in the March past, to be one of Ptittyslvania's two delegates to the convention.

Old Jeremiah tried painfully hard to divide land, slaves, personal effects and household goods equaillly among his heirs. The provisions covering the ownership and operation of the grist mill after his passing are unique in that all were to share in its upkeep and all were to share in its output.

The inference from the reading of the will is that it was a closely knit family which was kept that way by a stern but caring and considerate patriarchal father. The provisions in the deed indicate that he was an impeccably honest man also.

The mill property was buried in tax records as ordiinary acreage with assessed value and all of White's property stayed in his name until after the probation of his estate. Its final disposition is obscured by settlement of the estate and by missing, or non-existant. There is no reason to believe that it was as successful a mill operation as was that of his son-in-law William Clark on the Banister. Perhaps it was largely a plantation mill since there were many slaves in the White fields and a large personal family in the manor house to feed. It is believed that it stayed in the White family for an extended period, since no record of the sale of it was found in county archives.

The records concerning the fate of the remaining White property are confusing. Some heirs begin selling property as soon as their mother departed this life. However, one cannot judge their successes or failures on land transactions and tax records alone. Furthermore, the new nation was to endure at least two of its worst financial panics during the next half century. Failures were not always the fault of the property owner, but were frequently the direct results of distant events and forces beyond the control of local citizens.

Present day Jeremiah White descendants believe they know the location of the mill site because of some stone formations, etc.

The story of Jeremiah White's Mill affords the best example of a family run mill wherein everybody worked and everybody shared in the output. This arrangement worked during Jeremiah White's lifetime because he appeared to have been every inch the "Patriarch of Sweetings Fork". All unanswered questions aside, he deserves having this title applied to him in 1988 -- the bicentenial of his passing.

From Dennis Moore's "Irby: An American Saga"

In 1688 Joshua Irby sued his brother, William, for failing to give him his inheritance from his father, Dr. William Irby's estate, since the 1st of October (1687). It is likely that Joshua had turned 21 at that time so he was probably born in October of 1666. He married Elizabeth Ludson (or Hudson) in 1694. He was a cantankerous man. One
can catch a glimpse of his personality from the numerous records that have survived. In 1692 the young doctor was fined a shilling for swearing. In 1716 James Westbrook appealed to the court saying that he was a servant of Dr. Joshua Irby and he was being illegally held in bondage. Westbrook stayed with his brother John Westbrook until the case could be decided. The court agreed and Joshua had to release him and pay him 5 shillings. The next year John went after Henry and Margaret Westbrook, his brother and a sister. He claimed that Joshua unlawfully was detaining them and that he abused them in the most violent and gross manner. The court agreed and ordered them to be released. The orphans were the children of James Westbrook who died in 1711 in Prince George County. The children of Westbrook were Samuel, John, James, Thomas, Margaret, Frances, and Elizabeth Westbrook.

Mrs. Irby, Elizabeth Ludson Irby, was still alive in 1708 when she and Joshua sold Robert Hicks 240 acres 10 but sometime later she died and he married a woman named Jane. He lived most of his life in Prince George County but about 1721 when he was about 55 years old, he moved to Cedar Creek
on the North Side of the Appomattox in what is Chesterfield County today. He received grants for land where Great Branch enters Waqua Creek in Brunswick County but does not appear to have moved there himself. Joshua made some bitter children when he wrote his will August 28, 1745. In that will he left much to his grandchildren and little to his own offspring. His sons, John and Peter, and his daughters, Mary Dewberry and Sarah Worsham, received land and slaves
from the estate. His grandchilden by Anthony, Mary, and Sarah all received the bulk of his fortune. He left his eldest son, William, a mere shilling. He left his son Joshua a shilling and added that it was his desire that Joshua be put out of doors by the last of November. He left his daughter, Penelopie Parrot, the things that she had and added that "it is more than she does deserve." The biggest blow came to his son, Anthony, who was left absolutely nothing! The will caused an uproar among the children that felt they had been cheated in the will. William sent his attorney, a Mr. Hayles, to court to stop the horrible will from being probated. The court gave Irby a month to appear in court himself to show why the will should not be allowed. A month later he did just that but not to the satisfaction of the court and the will was recorded. Anthony, John, and
Penelopie hired their own lawyer to fight the will naming their stepmother, Jane Irby, as defendant.

Fuqua ancestor was originally from France

By Curtis Thomasson (Contact) Andalusia Star-News

Published Saturday, September 5, 2009

It is believed that Guillaume Fouquet was the first Fuqua ancestor to arrive in America. It appears that Guillaume was born circa 1667 in France. He and his relatives were most likely among the French Huguenots who left France during the late 1600s in an effort to escape the religious persecutions they were experiencing. The Huguenots were Protestants in France whose churches had been outlawed, so they had been suffering for about 100 years.

Guillaume and some of his relatives settled in England for a time before making their way to America. He came as a headright to Thomas Cock, Sr., who was granted a land patent in Varina Parish, Henrico County, Virginia, to transport 17 headrights from England to the Colony of Virginia. On October 20, 1689, Thomas Cock, Sr. was granted 816 acres on the south side of Chickahaniny Main Southwest.

Guillaume arrived circa 1685 and was most likely a part of the large exodus of French Huguenots migrating from the British countries. He was soon married in 1685 in Charles City County, Virginia, to Jane Eyre, daughter of Joseph and Margaret (Humphreys) Eyre. William Humphreys was her maternal grandfather. All of Guillaume and Jane’s children were born in Charles City County.

It is a challenge to track Guillaume through local records due to the various spellings of his names. The traditional spelling of Guillaume Fouquet is generally not recorded, but it is listed as Gill, Gillo and Gille and the last name as Fuquett, Fueque Ffuckett. The most common spelling used was Gill Fuquett.

Most of Guillaume’s sons, with the exception of Giles, soon changed the spelling of their name to Fuqua. Giles, who was most likely his father’s namesake, used the “Fewqua” spelling. He was married to Elizabeth, and he moved his family from Henrico County to Charles City County where they settled. He died there in 1771 and left a will in which he named his children: Samuel, William, John, Joseph, Hanna Rock, Elizabeth Johnson, and Dina.

Giles’s son, Samuel, used the Fewqua spelling as his father. He and his wife, Mary, moved across the James River and settled in Prince George County. No record of his children’s names has been located, but the Personal Property Tax Lists of Prince George County offer some clues as to possible sons.

Randolph Fewqua was one of Samuel’s possible sons. He also used the same spelling as Samuel and Giles, Samuel’s father. He followed the usual pattern of naming two of his children Samuel and Mary after their grandparents. Randolph was married to Lydia, and they resided in Prince George County where he died in 1802. From that date, his wife, Lydia’s, name replaced his on the tax lists until her death in 1812. Their children were named in the settlement of Lydia’s estate.

One of their children, Randolph R. Fuqua, used the common form of the name. He was born circa 1770 and was one of the first in this family to begin the southerly migration. By 1800, he had reached North Carolina where at least one of his sons, Absalom Fuqua, was born. The family had moved to Washington County, Georgia, by 1805 and was listed as a participant in the 1805 Georgia Land Lottery. Although he received a prize of land, he did not pay the fee and actually claim the land.

Randolph R. finally settled in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia, where his youngest children were born. In 1814, he was listed on the tax lists for that county. He had two sons, Absalom and Randal III, and it is believed that Amos, John M., Sterling and Cornelius were also his sons.

In 1821, Absalom Fuqua was living in Early County, Georgia, when he drew land in Monroe County, Georgia. He was still in Early County six years later when in 1827, his father, Randolph, had joined him. In March 1827, both were drawn to serve jury duty. In October 1827, Absalom sold his land in Early County to Jeremiah Fowler, and moved his family to Walton County, Florida.

It appears that the father, Randolph R. Fuqua, followed his sons into new territory again in Walton County. He, Absalom and Randal Jr. all signed a petition in which the settlers in Walton County requested the U.S. Government to provide funds for clearing the snags and sunken logs in the Yellow River in 1839. Prior to this time, only Absalom’s name showed up on the census and other records.

An aged Randolph R. Fuqua was last found in the 1840 census records for the western area of Walton County, which is now a part of Okaloosa County. He was residing between his son, Absalom Fuqua, and who appears to be Absalom’s father-in-law, John Barrow. It is most likely that he died and was buried in that vicinity.

Absalom Fuqua appears to have arrived in Walton County prior to 1829 when he was still single. Records show he sold two pieces of property in Early County, Georgia, in 1827. His first noted appearance in Walton County was in 1829 when his name was recorded on the voting list for electing a delegate to Congress from the Yellow River precinct. A voter was required to have lived in the voting district for two years. He would have married about this time, since his first child was born there in 1832.

Absalom was married to Tabitha Barrow, who is believed to have been the daughter of John and Elizabeth Barrow of the Yellow River community. This has not been documented, but all available records strongly suggest it. Absalom and Tabitha had moved into Covington County by the 1830 census. However, they were there only a short time, because Absalom voted at Almarante, Florida, in the 1831 election. He continued to be found on Florida election records and petitions in 1832, 1839 and 1842.

Absalom’s father and brother, Randal III, joined him in the 1830s. Some voting records list them during the late 1830s. In 1840, Absalom and Tabitha were living next door to the John Barrow family, and Absalom’s father, Randolph R. Fuqua, was on the other side of the Barrows in Walton County.

Absalom and Tabitha made their final move to an area in Conecuh County that later became a part of Escambia County, Alabama, when it was formed. They were enumerated there in the 1850 census. Some reports suggest he died in 1855 when he was about 55 years of age and was buried in the area near Sepulga, but this has not been confirmed. In 1860, Tabitha was residing with here son, James, and daughter, Elizabeth. Her younger children were living next door with her son, John.

It has been reported that Tabitha gave birth to 13 children in 14 years, which is quite a record. She and Absalom Fuqua reared the following children: William Wesley, b. 1832, d.1897, m. Nancy Caroline Archilus; Henry Morton, b. 1834, d. 1917; John, b. 1835, d. 1921, m. (1) Esther ? (2) Roxie Susan King; twins, Nancy J. and Elizabeth, b. 1836; James F., b. 1835, d. 1917, m. Elizabeth “Babe” Haveard; Sarah A., b. 1840; Minerva, b. 1841, m. George Nieser; Reuben, b. 1842, d. 1932, m. Lottie Cincinatti Adkinson; George, b. 1843, d. before 1870, m. Elizabeth ?; Wealthy, b. 1844; Mary Pollyanna, b. 1845, d. 1904, m. William Henry Barneycastle; and Samuel, b. 1846.

History of Echols family

A short history of our family from the first that landed in America till the present time, as far as I can ascertain----.

John Echols an Englishman came to America about the end of the 16th or the beginning of the 17th Century and settled in Caroline County, Virginia, and married a tall redheaded woman named Mary Cave and by her had five sons and three daughters. I shall begin with his sons first and carry out their family as far as my knowledge extends.

John was his first son who left Virginia a young man and settled in the lower part of N. Carolina and raised his family, of whom I know nothing.

Abraham was old John’s 2nd son, married Sarah Tamer and by her had two sons and several daughters. His sons were Joseph and Joshua. Joseph married a Miss King, and by her had 2 sons and 5 or 6 daughters. His sons Abraham and Jeremiah who left Virginia in time of the Revolutionary War and went to Pennsylvania. Of their offspring I know nothing. Joshua married Hannah Brown, had a number of children of whom I know but little. He had one son Darius, a conspicuous man in Habersham County, GA. The rest of his family lives chiefly in the upper part of Georgia. Old Abraham had one daughter who married James Hodges a very worthy man, his family moved to Tennessee. He had one son named Jessee and he had a son named James who was a commanding officer in Tennessee and got drowned in Cumberland River near Cairo. Jessee had one daughter named Tabitha, that is all I know of the family. Old Abraham had another daughter named Sarah who married John Rowden and by her had 4 sons and one daughter. His
sons were Abraham, Laban, Josee, and John. Abraham married a woman named Chick, moved to Tennessee. I know nothing of his family. Laban married Milly Adams raised a large family. I know nothing of them only two of his sons to wit, Hubert and Lot, who live in Guinett County, Ga. Josee married Susannah Adams, moved to Tennessee, of his family I know nothing. John married Milly Brewer, a widow, the daughter of old Jeremiah Reeves, sister to Rev. Malachi Reeves and Rev. Jeremiah Reeves. He also moved to Tennessee and was drowned in the Tennessee River. Of his family I know nothing. Old John Rowden’s daughter was Tabitha. She married Glover Crain, had several children by her and then died. He had one son named Joseph Crane who married a Miss Hood. They had several children, one son named John Glover Crane who was a wholesale merchant in Charleston, S.C.Joshua Crane had a daughter married a Mr.Whitman, a Baptist preacher and a teacher in the Penfield Academy, Green County, Georgia.
P.S. James Hodges daughter married John Lacy. Wm Glass and Hally Shaw Lacy had one son named Elijah and he and wife parted. Glass had 5 sons and 3 daughters. His sons were Hubbard, Mason, Frederick who married Betsy Strother and he was killed by the Indians in Alabama. The other three, David, Elish and Eahlij Mason married a Miss Wyatt and lives in Fayett County, Georgia the rest of his sons I know nothing. His daughters were named Tabitha, Patsy, and Sally. Tabitha married Richard Wood and by him had three sons and one daughter. Her sons were Winston, William and Willis. Her son William represented three different counties in the state of Georgia and was Colo. Of the same counties. He then moved to Randolph County, Alabama and represented that county and is Colo. And judge of the court.
Willis, her third son married a Miss Cochran and died young. Richard Wood’s daughter was named Elizabeth and married Samuel D. Echols. Hally Shaw raised a large family in Jackson County, Georgia. I know nothing of his family only E. B. Shaw, his grandson, who lives in Guynett County, and is a very eminent Baptist preacher.
P. S. If I mistake not, old Abraham Echols had a daughter who married a man by the name of Hubbard in Virginia. I know nothing further of them.
The third son of old English John Echols was named William. I don’t know who he married. He had several sons and daughters. His sons were John and William. John was one of the largest men ever raised in Virginia. He was a Quaker preacher. That’s all I know of him or his family as I never saw him but once. William was also a very large man, married a widow Spradlin. By her had three sons and four daughters. His sons were Joel, Elcanah, and William. Joel and Elcanah moved to Tennessee. Settled on Cumberland River near Caro. I was once at Elcanah’s house after his death. He had a large family. I know the names of none of them only his youngest son named Richard. They are a very wealthy family. Joel I think they told me had no child. William, the third son, married a girl by the name of Elizabeth Farmer - a schoolmate of mine in Virginia. He moved to Alabama, settled in Madison County near Huntsville and was a very great wholesale merchant in that town. I know but very little of his family. He had a daughter married Richard Holden also a wholesale merchant in Huntsville and also had two sons who moved to Mississippi. One of them was killed by a man and the other wrote to me about it. I think the one that wrote was by the name of Larkin. The one that was killed I think was by the name of Joseph. That’s all that I know of that family.
Old William Echols daughters married William Wynne, Vardre McBee and Daniel Williams and Richard Anderson. Of Wynne’s family I know nothing as they moved to Tennessee in an early date. Old Vardre McBee moved from Virginia to South Carolina before the Revolutionary War and was a Capt. In that army and was said to have done as much damage to the British and Torries in that part of the country as any Capt. In that country. He had two sons, to wit, Silas and Vardre. Silas was a very large man, went to Mississippi and died there. I know nothing of his family. Vardre still lives in South Carolina, Greenville District. He has six children, only one married, that a daughter, married a Mr. Carson. He has one daughter Malinda single, one son Luther, the rest I don’t know their names.

Sampson was said to be an uncommon smart man, represented his county many years. There is a very fine town in Tennessee named in hone of his name - Williamsburg.Sampson Williams was a very large man, rather cross-eyed.

Medy became very rich, owned the first merchant mill I ever saw, on Banister River in Virginia, where was a considerable town built named Medsville in honor of Medy Anderson’s name. They both had families of which I know but little.
Joseph Echols was the fourth son of old English John Echols. He never married, consequently had no family. He was an afflicted man, had what was called the asthma which prevented him from lying down. He never lay down for forty years-had an instrument made that fitted his forehead and sat and slept. His common vocation was hunting and trapping on the River at which business he made considerable property as he lived in the frontier country where game was plenty.

He got every vote that was given in the county and the county was very large. He continued to go to the legislature as long as he stayed in Virginia. He then moved to Georgia, Wilkes County. He became a representative of Wilkes County in Senate and was once appointed President Senate pro tem - you can see his name in the digest of the laws of Georgia. He became so fat that it was supposed by the doctors that his fat melted in him, killed him before he was sixty years old. He weighed nearly four hundred pounds. He raised his family in Wilks County, Georgia but after his death they moved to Tennessee. I have but little account of them since. He had one son named Randolph and one named Anderson.

A Short Account of my Great Grandfather Walter Evans Faymily

He was a Welchman. Came to America about the beginning of 17th century, married Betsy Holcomb and settled in Caroline County, Virginia. He had several sons and four daughters. Who his sons married I know not. One of his daughters named Caty married Richard Echols - my grandfather. One other named Kitty married Daniel Terry. From them sprang the Colquitt family. One other of his daughters married John Hendrick. From them came the family of Jones, Smith and Ligon. Another of his daughters married Richard Hubbard. From them sprang the Hubbard family of Oglethorpe County, Georgia.
Old English John Echols had three daughters which I could have inserted had I known enough about them to give any satisfactory account of them. I only know they married outlandish men, one an Englishman named Nicholas Gilington. Of their family I know nothing. The second daughter married an Irishman named Murphy. I know nothing of their family only they had two sons, Joseph and William, that was called the greatest Baptist preachers that ever was known in Virginia of their day. Old English John Echols third daughter married a Scotchman named Marshbank. I know nothing of their family only the family of Deens in DeKalb and Floyd County sprang from that family.

Descendants of Joseph/Elizabeth Berry, 1750 to 1850

Submitted by Nell C. Hailey and Roger G. Ward

Joseph Berry, first found in Prince Edward records in the 1770's with a land purchase near the village of Jamestown, and Sailors (Saylers) Creek, in the northeastern part of the county, and his wife Elizabeth — identified in 1805 deed records — are known to have at least 10 children (4 sons, 6 daughters). Both of the authors descend from a daughter, Mary (who married Josiah Sharpe), whose son Thomas H. Sharpe moved to Buckingham County about 1815. Due to the scarcity of records in Buckingham, a "burned records" county, we have focused on adjacent counties to "piece together" the ancestral families. The senior author [Roger G. Ward], living in Fredericksburg, Virginia, has made many visits to courthouses, church cemeteries, and libraries in Amelia, Prince Edward, Cumberland and Goochland counties (as well as The Library of Virginia) to find "pieces of the puzzle;" the junior author [Nell C. Hailey], living in Chandler, Arizona, has enjoyed evaluation of the various materials uncovered and serving as both an "interpreter" and "devils advocate" in the process. The material presented below is to be considered a summary of research thus far, and by no means the "final word." Since several of our conclusions have come from multiple documents, a list of sources is listed at the end of the article. Interested readers are encouraged to examine these same documents — should other interpretations be possible.

ANCESTRY OF JOSEPH AND ELIZABETH BERRY.
Although the "convenient" parents of Joseph Berry would be found in Amelia County as early as the 1730's — being Thomas and Catherine Berry — no solid evidence exists. (In fact, Mrs. Dorothy A. Koenig of California, editor of Berry Bulletin, has concluded that "our" Joseph was not a son of Thomas Berry of Amelia County who died in Kentucky in 1824.) Although the International Genealogical Index (IGI) lists Elizabeth's maiden name as "Shaver" or "Sheaffer," we have not been able to document this.

John Echols married Mary Cave
John Echols an Englishman came to America about the end of the 16th or the beginning of the 17th Century and settled in Caroline County, Virginia, and married a tall redheaded woman named Mary Cave and by her had five sons and three daughters. The Echols sons were dependable Amelia County citizens and served on juries when called. Of twelve good men on the jury of Robert Vaughan vs. Richard Ward on 9 December 1737, three were Richard, William, and Abraham Echols:John Echols [Ecckles] married Mary Cave daughter of John Cave and Ellizabeth Travers. Mary was born abt 1650, Orange County, Virginia d about 1713 in Virginia Their children were: 1 Mary Echols b: ABT 1682 in King and Queen, Virginia 2 John Echols b: ABT 1684 in King and Queen, Virginia **3 Abraham Echols b: 1686 in Comfort, Lee County, Virginia -- d 3 Oct 1749, in Lunenberg, Virginia married (BEF 1729 in Virginia) Sarah Hubbard b: ABT 1700 4 William Echols b: 1686/1690 in Virginia 5 Joseph Echols b: ABT 1688 in Virginia 6 Elizabeth Echols b: ABT 1690 in King and Queen, Virginia 7 Richard Echols b: 1694 in King And Queen Virginia 8 Anne Echols b: ABT 1698 in Virginia

**Abraham and Sarah {Hubbard} Echols had a number of children, including 3 sons who moved to Habersham County GA and several more who moved to Forsyth County, Georgia. I descend from one of the three sons in Habersham County, probably Darius Echols and his two daughters, granddaughters or nieces -- one who married Thomas Stephens, Jr. (Grandfather's side) and another who married Captain Littleton Stephens (CSA) ( Grandmother's side) -- it's a small county in Georgia and they all lived within 5 miles of each other, went to the same Church (Broad River Baptist). I have another more direct tie to the Hubbards, however in England the name was Sir Henry Hubbard (First Baronet). The line on my father's side goes from me as follows: LaRoche-Watkins-Walton-Claibourne-Barber-Archer-Elizabeth (Hubbard) Archer who died in 1727 in VA -then to- John Hubbard-Matthew Hubbard-Robert Hubbard-Sir Henry Hubbard

This line has been traced back to William Hobart (or Hubbar) -- Born c. 1388, at Bedford near Monks Eleigh, County Suffolk, England -- Who died in 1479 at Monks Eleigh, Suffolk, England. Looking forward to Sir Henry Hobart, Esq. Born ca 1553 at Plumstead, Norfolk. Henry died at Blicking, Norfolk, on 29 Dec 1625. It is not totally clear that he is Robert's father but there is a tie to Benjamin (grandson, who also immigrated to the Virginia Colony, Edmund HOBART (immigrant to Hingham, Mass) Rev Peter HOBART (also Hingham) and George (New England)). The Hobart who did not leave England married a person who descends from Mary the Tudor Princess of England through the Seymour family -- so the Hubbard's had legal connections even back then. Some earlier Hubbard history at http://www.garrettfamily.info/family-history/hubbard/Hubbard-Branch.pdf {htlm} -&- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubbard_family

Sir Henry Hobart, 1st Baronet SL (c. 1560 – 29 December 1625) was a English judge and politician. He was also the son of Thomas Hobart and Audrey Hare. He was admitted to Lincoln's Inn on 10 August 1575. Called to the Bar in 1584, he became governor of Lincoln's Inn in 1591. Between 1588 and 1589, he was Member of Parliament (MP) for St Ives, for Yarmouth in 1597 and 1601, and for Norwich from 1604 to 1611. Hobart was Steward of Norwich in 1595, and Serjeant-at-Law from 1603 to 1606. Hobart was Attorney for the Court of Wards in 1605 and Attorney General for England and Wales between 1606 and 1613. From 1613 to 1625, he was further Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas.

Having been Lord Chancellor to Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales, he was also Chancellor and Lord Keeper of the Great Seal to Charles, Prince of Wales. Knighted in 1603, he was made a Baronet, of Intwood in the County of Norfolk on 11 May 1611. Hobart purchased the estates of Intwood in 1596 and of Blickling in 1616, where he was buried on 4 January 1625.

On 21 April 1590, he married Dorothy Bell, daughter of Sir Robert Bell on 21 April 1590 in Blickling in Norfolk. They had twelve sons including John Hobart (from whom George and Benjamin descend) and four daughters.

On 22 Apr 1570 Henry married Dorothy Bell, daughter of Sir Robert Bell (ca 1539-22 Jul 1577) & Dorothy Beaupre (ca 1538-February 1602/3), at Blicking, Norfolk. Born on 19 Oct 1552 at Beaupre, Norfolk. Dorothy died at Covent Garden, Middlesex, England, on 30 April 1641.

John Echols Notes

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=bev angenealogy&id=I5509



In 1850 Milner Echols wrote-The Short History of Our Family? beginning with his earliest known ancestor, John Echols Sr. who married Mary Cave about 1688. His grandson brought it to Texas and the Dallas Genealogical Society published it. Milner was not a genealogist and other historians have surpassed his work. Nevertheless, it is interesting because he wrote it so long ago. In this Family Topic, we will quote him periodically. Quotations in italics are Milner?s words.-John Echols an Englishman Came to America about the end of the 16th or the beginning of the 17th Century and Settled in Caro County Verginia and married a tall Redheaded woman named Mary Cave - & by her had 5 Sons & 3 Daughters. - Yet, some historians believe Echols was not English but Welsh and perhaps even Welsh Quaker. We do not know who John?s father was.




Three other Echols were in Virginia before John: Joyce Echoll in 1652 , Richard Eccles in 1653 , and Sylvester Echols in 1664 . The most likely of the three to be the father of John is Richard Eccles. They spelled the name-Echols? many ways in the records:-Eckles,?-Eckols,?-Eccles,?-Eckels,? etc. Some have speculated that John Echols wasidentical to the John Eccles who appeared near Herrin Creek in Charles City County 1677-94 . This John Echols married possibly a daughter of Thomas Harris and his wife, Yuet ?. On 13 September 1677 , administration of the estate of Thomas Harris was granted John Echols and John Hardaway. Thomas Harris, likely the son of the elder Thomas Harris and who had come of age, petitioned the court to summon Echols on 2 March 1690/1 . Charles City County awarded Echols 200 pounds of tobacco for two wolves heads in 1691 . We can find no evidence that John Echols of Charles City County was John Echols Indeed the former John Echols was killing wolves in Charles City County while the latter John Echols was living in New Kent. We do not know who Mary Cave?s father was but we presume he was one of a few men named Cave in early Virginia. The most likely candidate is John Cave [1678] who twice applied for a land patent with John Echols. Mary was said to be born about 1650 and died after 1712. On 20 April 1685, John Echols and William Morris received 350 acres-behind land formerly of Mr. Giles Moody? in New Kent County.




This was for the transportation of seven persons. Echols and Morris allowed their right to the land lapse and James Taylor obtained its patent in 1688 . On 23 April 1688, John alone was granted 321 acres next to land he already owned. John evidently prospered because fifteen years later he, Samuel Craddock, John Cave, and William Glover were granted 1,620 acres on the-branches of Tuckahoe Swamp and the freshes of Mattaponi River in King and Queen and Essex Counties.? John never lived in Caro County because they created it sixteen years after he died. Yet in 1685 the boundaries of New Kent County adjoined the present-day Caro County and part of John?s land may have been in what is now Caro County. On 23 October 1703, John Echols and John Cave secured a patent for 600 acres in St. Stephens Parish in King and Queen County. John Echols paid quit rents on 220 acres in 1704. John and Mary were the parents of five sons: John , Abraham , William , Joseph, and Richard Echols .




Their three daughters were Eleanor , Ann , and Elizabeth Echols.. The Echols sons were dependable Amelia County citizens and served on juries when called. Of twelve good men on the jury of Robert Vaughan vs. Richard Ward on 9 December 1737, three were Richard, William, and Abraham Echols . On historian reported that seven individuals, including four sons of John Echols Sr., were granted 6,000 acres of land in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, on 11 December 1728. Yet no such patent was ever issued. The Echols sons were Abraham , William, Joseph , and Richard Echols . Another participant was William Echols?s son-in-law, Richard Anderson Jr. We believe these four Echols sons lived in Amelia County, Virginia, until around 1750. They then resettled in what is now Halifax County and Pittsylvania County. The Gillintine, Marchbanks, Collins, Hendrick, and Hubbard families, who intermarried with the Echols, moved from Amelia County to Halifax around the same time.




After the Echols family moved from Amelia County, another Echols family arrived. Edward Echols, patented 400 acres in July 1738, 548 acres in April 1748, and 364 acres in September 1755. In 1755 as Edward Echols-of Albemarle Parish, Sussex County, Virginia,? he deeded land to his brother, Robert Echols of Nottoway Parish , and his son, Thomas Echols . This was perhaps the Edward Echols who secured a patent for 140 acres in Surry (later Sussex) County in 1727 to which he added 104 acres in 1743. Both Edward and Thomas Eccles were later in Albemarle Parish and the Albemarle Parish Register records the births of some of their children. Edward Echols died in Sussex County [27 Oct 1757 / 21 Apr 1758] leaving Amelia County land to several sons.




Other notes:


John Echols, according to the best history, migrated to the US during Oliver Cromwell's time, because of some differences between Cromwell and himself! He is reputed to have had large possessions in England, and to have sold same, turning the proceeds thereof into gold and brought with him. He settled in Virginia, becoming a large planter and slave owner.

Land patents for John Echols On 20 April 1685 John Echols and William Morris received 350 acres ?behind land formerly of Mr. Giles Moody? in New Kent County. This was for the transportation of seven persons. Echols and Morris allowed their right to the land lapse and James Taylor obtained its patent in 1688. On 23 April 1688, John alone was granted 321 acres next to land he already owned. Fifteen years later in 1703, he, Samuel Craddock, John Cave, and William Glover were granted 1,620 acres on the ?branches of Tuckahoe Swamp and the freshes of Mattaponi River??????? in King and Queen and Essex Counties. The tract began on the east side of Potobago Path. A patent for Francis Meriwether places Potobago Path on the branches of Hoskins Creek. Thus the tract was 2-3 miles south of present-day Beazley, Virginia. On 23 October 1703, John Echols and John Cave secured a patent for 600 acres in St. Stephen?s Parish in King and Queen County.

Land Purchase in Greenup County Kentucky

According to Biggs (1951), Captain Moses Fugua sold his property in Virginia and a bought a "trace of land of more than thirteen hundred acres along the Ohio River between Mt. Zion and Tygart Creek. Today this is So Shore, Greenup County, Kentucky. Moses brought his large family and many slaves from Campbell County, Virginia, and settled there. Judith Woodson Fugua [his wife] never came to Kentucky as she died before they left Virginia."

NotesMary (Cave) Echols was NOT the daughter of John Cave and Elizabeth Waugh! Her parents are unknown.

Author: Michael Walker Date: 15 Jan 2002
There must be tens of thousands and probably hundreds of thousands of people who descend from John Echols who married Mary Cave. And everywhere you look on the Internet, including many nicely designed websites, we have recorded that this Mary Cave was the daughter of John Cave and Elizabeth Travers, who herself was the daughter of Giles Travers and Ann Waugh. I accept the very very strong possibility that John Echols wife Mary was a Cave, based on their g-grandson Milner Echols's records as well as the many early Cave - Echols connections which he would not have known about. However, Milner also states Mary was the daughter of John Cave. This may be true, (or may possibly not be, a very early David Cave seems another possibility). Even if John Cave is Mary's father, however, it can't be the same John Cave who married Elizabeth Travers! Why? Many reasons, but a clear one is this. Mary (Cave) Echols birth date is not known, but she started having children in the late 1690's. So she was born probably ca 1670 maybe as late as 1680. Some records estimate 1674. Well, Elizabeth Travers's father, Giles Travers, was born ca 1662 proven by various records. So can someone explain to me how Giles could have had a grandaughter Mary Cave who was born when he was twelve years old? My personal opinion is that John Cave who married Elizabeth Travers, was the nephew or possibly even grand nephew of Mary Cave Echols. He could NOT have been her father. Please don't take this posting as confrontational. However it would be a great service if those many people who have posted on their webpages and elsewhere, the incorrect data that Mary Cave Echols' s parents were John Cave and Elizabeth Travers, would remove that incorrect data, and even contact other descendants they have (I realize unwittingly and with no malice) passed this mistake on to.

"Mayflower" passenger
Wife of Isaac Allerton, the 5th signer of the "Mayflower Compact".

She traveled to the Colonies with her husband and 3 children Barhlomew, Remember and Mary Allerton Cushman, who became the wife of Elder Thomas Cushman.

She was the first person to give birth in the Colonies (a stillborn born upon the Mayflower as it was docked in the harbor).

It is said that in the painting by Henry Sargent (1770-1885) entitled "Landing of the Pilgrims", Mary Norris Allerton is represented as having a fine face, rather beautiful, and as being of a "meek and quiet spirit". The painting was painted in 1818-1822 and is on permanent display at Pilgrim Hall Museum; Plymouth, MA.

ORDER NOW! Marriage:

Thomas Cushman, about 1636, Plymouth.

Death: 28 November 1699, Plymouth. Children: Thomas, Mary, Sarah, Isaac, Elkanah, Fear, Eleazar, and Lydia. Biographical Summary

Mary Allerton was born about 1616 in Leiden, Holland, to parents Isaac and Mary (Norris) Allerton. She came to Plymouth on the Mayflower in 1620, at about the age of four. Around 1636, she married Thomas Cushman. Thomas had come to Plymouth at the age of 13 on the ship Fortune in 1621 with father Robert Cushman, a prominent member of the Pilgrims' congregation in Leiden. Thomas and Mary had a surprisingly prosperous family: seven of their eight children survived to adulthood, got married, and provided at least 50 grandchildren. Thomas and Mary both lived to very old age, having never moved from Plymouth. Thomas died in December 1691, nearly reaching 85 years in age. Mary, who gave birth to and raised eight children, lived to the age of 83. Prior to her death in November 1699, she was the last surviving Mayflower passenger.

-We have been informed that Phillip SMITH and his two daughters, Melissa and -----, late of this county, have fallen victims to the yellow fever at Chapel Hill, Texas; and that his two eldest sons, Benjamin and Thomas had been attacked by the pestilence at Washington, in the State. At last accounts the latter was convalescing, but the former was lying in a critical condition.
