Notes for John BerryhillII:
John Berryhill Jr. was born in Carolina in 1728. Married Rachel Moffat, daughter of James Moffat. He was a farmer by occupation. Sometime or other he settled in the Scotch-Irish settlement in Augusta County, VA. They located some where between Staunton and Lexington. John’s name is recorded in the will of James Moffat. Dated June 25, 1757, where appears the words: "Son-in-law John Berryhill and his wife Rachel Berryhill as Beneficiaries." John’s name appears in various legal documents in 1761, 1764, 1765, and 1767. In Calkley’s Augusta Co., Va. Chronicles, Page 778 appear these lines.

"March 12, 1765, James Trimble of Greene Springs and Sarah Trimble conveyed to John Berryhill for 50 lbs. Sterling, 180 acres on Borders Creek in the forks of James River, corner of James Trimble, Patrick McColloms line."

This property is now in Rockbridge, Co. John was a prominent and respected citizen of Virginia.

According to one unconfirmed source, John Berryhill is burried inLexington, VA, in the same cemetery as Stonwall Jackson. Ronald L. Berryhill a 4th great grandson, visited the cemetery in October of 1997 and could not find the grave. However, it is a very old cemetery and has many grave stones which have worn smooth over the years and all inscriptions are completely gone. The cemetery office was closed. Research continues.

Phillip Coffelt fought in the French and Indian War. He went to York County, Pennsylvania after the war, and to Stony Creed, Virginia in about 1765. Philip spoke English very poorly; possibly why the name change. He served in Braddock's army under George Washington. Fought at Big Meadows. He also faught in the Revolutionary War. Philip and his wife were married and settled in Greenbriar County, VA, then moved to Green County, East TN, before it became a state.

       83. Rebecca Ann Bennett, born 1755 in VA; died 1842 in Laurel County, KY.

Notes for Samuel Wyatt:
Thomas Wyatt died in the year 1832. In his will he left all his property, both real and personal, to his wife Polly, and at her death to be equally divided among his children. The will is contained in Box 119 of the Knox County Circuit Court. The real estate belonging to Thomas Wyatt consisted of 250 acres of land in Knox County, Kentucky, lying on the Cumberland River. Polly Wyatt died some time in the year 1851, and upon her death, the heirs brought suit to have the land sold and the proceeds divided amongst the heirs. Plaintiffs were Elizabeth Wyatt, Fanny (Frances) Wyatt, Susan Wyatt, Thomas J. Baughman (purchaser of Benjamin's share) Robert Hays and W. L. Tolbert, administrators of the estate of James hays, who had purchased Martha's (Patsy) share, and Polly Wyatt. Defendants were James Wyatt, Samuel Wyatt, Thomas Wyatt, Davis Wyatt, Samuel Coffelt, Rebecca Wyatt Coffelt, and the children of Catherine Wyatt, Chaplin and Letitia Wyatt. This suit indicates that Thomas Wyatt and Mary (Polly) Davis had 12 children. The result of this suit was that the court found that the land could not be divided amongst the heirs with convenience, and it was ordered by the court that the whole of the tract of land be sold at the courthouse door in Barbourville to the highest bidder. This order is dated 29 March 1854. On January 22, 1855 the sale was made, in accordance with the court's order, the high bidder being Joseph Smith. His bid was $1,140, which is $4.60 an acre.

A later suit indicates that Elizabeth, Polly, Fanny and Susan Wyatt changed their minds about the sale of the property, and asked that the sale be set aside. This suit was first brought in the name of Elizabeth only. Polly, Fanny and Susan then joined the suit, stating that it was a failure and mistake on the part of counsel not to unite them with Elizabeth, they were "very ignorant and illiterate and unable either to read or write and therefore wholly unable to know from an inspection of the record that the mistake existed . . . by which they failed to obtain the relief which has been afforded to the said Elizabeth". Their petition states that "they never aimed to petition for a sale of the whole of the land . . . they are situated on a small portion of the land all living close together on one end of the land and where they wish to remain. . ." They state "they are willing that their parts may be layed off and the balance sold and the proceeds divided . . ." This suit was brought in April, 1854. Subsequently the court ordered that the deed made to Joseph Smith, the purchaser, be canceled, and that deeds be made out to Elizabeth, Fanny, Polly and Susan Wyatt, and to Joseph Smith. These deeds allotted about 28 acres to Elizabeth, including the house in which she lived, Fanny, Susan and Polly received about 44 acres ad the balance of 178 acres went to Joseph Smith. The Commissioners' final report is dated April 5, 1858.
