Hughes and Francis

Before I post the will of Beveridge Hughes, I would like to ask if anyone who is in the Francis family would have a picture of Anna Elizabeth Francis or any of the other Francis in this family. Anna is the daughter of Robert Francis and Drady Turrentine. She married George C. Hughes in Morgan Co., AL in Jan 02, 1862. You may read more on World Connect at Rootsweb at John Francis.
Thank you for stopping by.


Will of Beveridge Hughes

6 Oct 1808. Will of Beveridge Hughes, being very sick and weak legatee wife, Nancy Hughes to have lifetime possession of the estate for support and to school children. Son Blackmore Hughes, land beginning at first branch above mansion house...to path that used to go to Martin Lawrence's old place. When he arrives of age to take possession. To son, Beveridge Hughes, land adjoining the above both sons to share the ???? until the death of their mother. Other goods and ???? to be divided among children to wit: daughter, Martha Burnet, Agnes Hughes, Nancy Hughes, Sarah Hughes, Polly Hughes. Witness:James Morrison. William Parmer, Sr. and Elizabeth Thompson.

Tonight I want to share a website with you. This site puzzles me so much due to the names. My gggrandfather was William H. Hughes and my gggrandmother was Jane Hughes. My ggrandfather was George C. Hughes. When I found this I could hardly believe the coincidence of the names and they too are from SC and AL. Limestone County, AL borders my home county of Morgan. If anyone from this family should see this, please leave a comment. Here is the site:

I am a decendent of this family and have done extensive work from Samuel on down. I have a copy of Samuel Wilsons Will where he names all of his children. You have some of them correct but some of them that you list are not his children. His three boys are Charles, John, and Felix. He had seven daughters Sally Rountree, Elizabeth Dixon, Nancy Nichols, Harriet Walker, Lotty Cates, Jane Taylor, Polly Robard/Roberts. I decend from Charles who married Elizabeth Rountree, John married Jennette Rountree, and Felix married Elizabeth McCullock I can prove all of these relationships. Ben Henderson

9. H. ?, died in Orange County, North Carolina.

Notes for Samuel Turrentine:
Samuel was one of two brothers from Ireland (Alexander and Samuel) who arrived aboard the privateer "Kouli Kan" on 11/14/1745 in Philadelphia. Samuel was indentured for a period of four years to John Dicky of Chester County. By 1754 the brothers were planters along Kishocquillas Creek in Menno Township, Mifflin County, Pennsylvannia. They built a cabin in 1755. The French and Indian War caused them to evacuate their land, and sell it in 1763. A query on the Chester county webpage that stated that the Dickeys lived in Fagg's Manor, Londonderry township, Chester county. Since Samuel and Alexander did not clear land in Mifflin county until 1754, they may have spend most of their time in or around the Fagg's Manor area. Perhaps they married there.
They moved to North Carolina in 1761 where Samuel was granted 394 acres of land at the "Fork of Little River". By 1780 Samuel had 724 acres of land on which he was taxed. Samuel was reimbursed for supplies furnished the North Carolina Militia during the American Revolution. The family cemetry is still maintained there.

13. Ann Latta, born 1727; died 1820 in Orange County, North Carolina. She was the daughter of 26. James Latta.

Notes for Robert Wilson:
Resident of:
- Orange County, North Carolina
grant 228 acres, July 30, 1760, Book 12, page 57

The file folder for this grant in the North Carolina archives contains the survey of this land performed in the name of Ann Latty which provides he Identity of his wife Ann. It is likely that she obtained this land as some portion due to the estate or prior application of her father.
An Archelius Wilson patented land near the same time and area as Robert so it is likely that he was a brother.

Looking for information on this family (or could be more than one family)shown in Orange Co., NC deeds:

1788 - Robert Wilson, wife Anne. Also mentioned: Thomas and Elizabeth Wilson (children?)
1806 - Robert Wilson. Children: Thomas, James, Elizabeth, Anne, Robert, John, Caleb
1809 - Robert Wilson. Children: Thomas, Elizabeth, John, Jane

Unknown if these are all the same family or not. I'm looking for the Elizabeth Wilson who married Samuel McMurry before 1771 in Orange Co.

Thanks,
Sandra

"I was unaware of any book published on the Wilson's of Orange co."

Hi Patrick,

I was surprised to find one, myself, and did so quite by accident while perusing the shelves in the genealogy room at the Durham, NC, public library. The book appeared to have been published a while back. I did not note the date, I don't think, as I fully indended to duplicate several pages when we had more time, and at a later date. I did copy the title, author's name, and birth dates of all of the children of James and Ann (Latta) Wilson's children, as well as the names of their spouses and their children. The interesting thing to me is that the day and month, as well as year, for couple's children were given, as though a Bible had been used. When I run across my notes I will forward the information to you, if you want it.

___________________________
In the file folder of the Lord Granville Land grant to Robert Wilson is filed a survey drawing and certificate in the name of Ann Latty, whom we are assuming became his wife. The witness to this includes James Latty and the date is too early to be some of the James Latta's who came to North Carolina later in Orange County. Branch 6 from the source below documents the presence of a James Latta who came to NC early about 1725 and was possibly one of the original brothers who arrived in the Philadelphia area and the first to go to NC. But whether the James Latta who was witness was her father or a brother is undetermined. Possibly she acquired the right to a survey by previous payment by her father who then died or by sponorship of a brother who intended the land for a dowery. Some people are put off by why a survey would be drawn in a woman's name, and although it is unusual it did occur on occasion.

Hi Pat,

Bebe Fox here. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

Re above from your site a book I saw regarding these Wilson's in the genealogy room at the Durham, NC, public library said that the above John Wilson married Eunice Browder. They are my ancestors TWICE! John and Eunice, dau. of Edmund Browder of Chatham Co., NC, had all daughters, the eldest having been Amy (perhaps actually Annie Amy as that comes in the next generation) who m. in 1798, Moses Atwater of Orange (I come from TWO of their sons, Wilson through my grandmother and Jahaza through my grandfather), and the Wilson's youngest daughter was named Martha "Patsy" Cynthia Wilson. Patsy was the 2nd wf. of my Bryant Strowd of Orange.

I don't know what the author used for his sources but we went back a couple of years later and the book had been stolen, though still noted on the library computer. It even had the day, month and year of birthdates of the children of Robert and Ann Wilson. I was certainly disappouinted but glad I had made the few notes I did make.

Looks like you have already found info that I have just learned. We are
on the same Wilkerson line. My g-gm was Sallie Wilkerson, d/o John and
Sarah Ann Wilson Wilkerson. A cousin in Orange County has just received
a Bible Record that gives info on this family. If you'd like to share
and exchange with us contact me.

Thank you for answering my message. First of all, let me say that I am not the one who has done all this research. I wish I could claim credit, but a cousin who lives in Orange County on some of the old Wilkerson land has made these finds. A family Bible has become available to him recently which gives the death dates of the John Wilkerson who died in 1821, and filed his will in Person County. The death dates match proving that this is the same person. His wife's death date was given as well some of their children and grandchildren including my own g-uncles and g- aunts who died in 1862, tying my g-gm into that family. John Wilkerson named his children in his will which were: James, Charles, Catherine, Nancy, Robert, Peggy, John C., and my Sarah. We have proof that he was father of these children whether his wife was Ann or Sarah or maybe Sarah Ann. Ann Wilson, in her will, mentions her grandson Robert Wilkerson and her s-i-l, John Wilkerson. John Wilkerson's 1821 will had as a witness Elizabeth Wilson, a sister to Ann Wilson Wilkerson. Your list of children for John and Ann Wilkerson seem to come from Ann Wilkerson's will. This Ann was married to William Willkerson and they were connected to the Quaker bunch of Wilkersons. Ann did not have a Robert which is necessary to tie her to Ann Wilson. Robert was named for his gf Robert Wilson probably the reason he received special treatment from his gm.

My cousin has found deeds and wills proving that James and Caty Wilkerson were parents of John. I will be glad to share any info that I have with you if you're interested.

Thanks for all that wonderful info on the Wilsons. My g-gm was Sallie Wilkerson and I had found nothings but dead ends in finding her family. Gene Wagner lives in Orange County on the old John C. Wilkerson homeplace. He got his hands on an old Bible in his family and found the death date of John Wilkerson and found his will in Person County.
It doesn't match the list that you have completely. Below is the list that the will gives and what we know about his kids so far. Do you have a list of James' children? We are still trying to get this info into our charts so may take a few days to get our files complete. I will send you the Bible Record next.

Records of Orange Co, NC court list the following entry

"Sep 1753, Torrington petition: Mary Torrington petition this court praying that an orphan female child called Sarah Torrington taken from her in a forcable manner by a certain Ephraim SISEMORE, a MULATTO &c be bound to Miles PARKER, ordered that said Parker take the said Orphan child into his care at present and that said Mary appear with sd Sarah before the Justices of the next court."

Records of Turrentine family are often spelled as Torrington in early Orange Co. records. Could Mary and the orphan Sarah be related to Alexander and Samuel? If so, who might they be?

Branch No. 6
In 1700 three brothers came from Ireland and landed in N. Carolina. Two of the brothers were John and James. I do not know the name of the other one. James is supposed to have settled in N. Carolina and raised a family. John went north and was lost sight of. So was the
other one. -- William C. Latta.
_____________________________
Other variations of this story have the brothers landing at the Head of Elk in the top of the Cheasapeake Bay and going to Philadelphia about 1725. It would ahve been common for person coming from the Philadelphia area to settle in the Orange County area of North Carolina between 1725 and 1750.


Children of James Latta are:

Hi, Patrick,

Just wanted to drop a note on latest developments on my James & Nancy Latta
research. There seems to be growing evidence that my James of note G fame
is the same James Jr., son of James Sr. of branch 6 that you mention below.
There is suppose to be a land transaction that connects 3 generations (my
James, James Sr., & his grandson, Walter Allen Latta (my g2-gfther)). I'm
waiting with baited breath for a copy of this land transaction.

Meanwhile, I wonder if you have info on James Sr. prior to 1754 which seems
to be the earliest mention of James Sr. in Orange Co. so far?


13 ii. Ann Latta, born 1727; died 1820 in Orange County, North Carolina; married Robert Wilson Abt. 1753 in Orange County, North Carolina.

Thank you for your post. Drady and Robert Francis were my great great grandparents. Also, I have been to the cemetery in Morgan where Arabella Francis is buried. It is possible that Robert and Drady are there as well, but I am not sure. The Francis were stone carvers who made tombstones. They were known for the house shaped tombstones that they carved.
