Notes for Jemima Wicker:|
Pat Ray had sent me a xerox copy of "McCoy-Crews Families and Descendants ca 1650-1976", "compiled at Amarillo, Potter Co TX by Margaret Crews Norman" and it states that "Jemima (Gemina or Jamina) Wicker" was one of 8 ch of Mary Hester and Thomas Wicker. : PJPF23A@Prodigy.com (MRS JOANNE R BLACK)
dob DAR Lineage Records
Death Date: Will probated GRANVILLE CO Feb. Court Book 21/106 or 10/98
Other : DAR Lineage Book, April 1932, Vol. 66, P. 249
DAR Lineage records. Jemima died after her husb. Both Gideon & Jemima's inventories were presented 6 Dec. 1815 according to "The Bell Book", pg. 403.
Other sources including Dr. Wicker's book, 1st edition, pg. 46 says Jemima died Granville Co., 1826. Jemima's will was written 12 Dec. 1825, proved Feb. Court 1826, Granville Co., NC. Inventories presented does not necessarily mean one is deceased at that time. Jemima buried as is Gideon, on the homeplace of land purchased in 1806. See "Historical Data of Granville County" as it appeared in the
Oxford Public Ledger, Oxford, Oxford, NC newspaper dated 25 June 1929. It states this land was the homeplace of his father-in-law, Thomas Wicker, Sr. however, his father-in-law was Benjamin Whicker as established by Dr. Wicker in his book, as well as other sources. The land was purchased by Gideon from Daniel & Co. who had purchased it from Peyton Wood. Thomas Wicker had sold it to Daniel & Co.. Dec. 1795 Thomas Wicker (son) sold 20 acres to Gideon Crews. (See Dr. Wicker's book, pg. 43, 1st edition for more details of land transfers.) The Bell Book,pg. 404, says Jemima was the dt. of Thomas & Mary (Hester) Whicker but DAR lineage record says dt. of Benjamin Whicker & 2nd wife as does Dr. Wicker's book agrees with the DAR lineage record. Jemima Wicker is buried at Granville Co, NC.

Notes for Mildred Crews:|
Granville County is East of Stokes County. There are two counties in between.
Mildred "Milly" CREWS- Dr. Wicker's final Newsletter issue says Mildred should read Mary. This needs documentation as to which is correct. All other info. regarding Milly or Mary is in agreement & correct. The Newsletter also states the 1st born child was named Nancy, b. 1795, Granville Co., NC., md. 30 Jan. 1813, Stokes Co., William Wicker.
UPDATE: Dec. 1996: Gideon's will names his 8 children and refers to his dau., Milly Hester.

Notes for John Hester:|
John was from Winston N.C. which is very close to where the land records of William Wortman are to be found. In fact John sold land to William.

Notes for Littleberry Crews:|
(Source: Thomas Randolph Crews,
"Electronic," I have done significant research on him using microfilm of the original records, wills, deeds, marriage bonds, etc. I found him referred to as Littleberry, Littlebury, Little Berry, Barry, and even L. B.
But I never found an original document with the first name of William.), born 1787 in Granville Co, NC (Source: Randolph Earl Richardson 580 Inverlane Dr. Sagamore Hills, OH 44067 (216) 467-1328 (1996) Yates Publishing Hazel Wicker Knight);
I don't know anything about the Mayfield and Elizabeth Earl marriage but William Littleberry Crews m. Nancy Cheatham, dau. of James Cheatham & Catherine Johnson, on 18 Dec. 1824 in Granville Co., NC. so Elizabeth Earl was dead by then. Littleberry Crews was the son of Gideon Crews and Jemina Wicker. He and Nancy moved to Maury Co., Tenn. and he was dead before 1859.
Their children were: James Crews, b. abt 1827 in NC.; Thomas Anderson Crews, b. 9 Oct. 1829 NC.; Isham J. Crews b. 22 July 1835 Tenn.; Gideon Crews b. abt 1836 Tenn.; and Andrew Crews b. abt 1840 Tenn.
