  Notes for William S. Rawlings:
From "Rawlings, A Lineage and Brief History of the Rawlings Family - Complied by a Descendant From W. J. Knight (1930)"

William S. Rawlings was the oldest son of Thomas Rawlings of Fleming County, Kentucky. It is possible for me to write a brief sketch of this Ohio pioneer because he spent the major part of this life in this part of the state. He left descendants here who continue to live in Logan County, I am indebted to his grandson, William Joshua Rawlings, of Bellefontaine, Ohio for much of the material of this sketch.

W. S. Rawlings died about the time I was born, so I never knew him, however, his name was mentioned occasionally by my grandfather, James Rawlings, in my presence, and I remember distinctly the visit of his widow, Vashti Gregg Rawlings, and her youngest daughter, Susie, to out house when I was about ten or twelve years old. It is claimed by some of his descendants that William S. Rawlings served in the War of 1812. As he was born in the year 1795, this is quite possible, though we have no records to support his claim. Coming to Ohio in 1814, he purchased a farm in Champaign County in Urbana Township on the western edge of "Pretty Prairie." According to the marriage records of this county, he was married to Martha Caldwell on September 6, 1818. She was, no doubt, a sister of John C. Caldwell who married Jane Winn, daughter of John Winn whose coming to this county from Fleming County, Kentucky, influenced six of the sons and daughters of Thomas Rawlings to come, viz. William, James, Elizabeth, Barbara, Malinda and Sally.

William S. did not remain long in Champaign County. Going to Logan County, adjo8ining Champaign on the North, he settled permanently on the site of the present village of Quincy. He bought a farm there on the south side of the present line of the Big Four R. R. An early settler by the name of Baldwin owned land on the north side of this line. These two men laid out the town of Quincy and named it from John Quincy Adams whose prominence in that day suggested the name for the town. Mr. Rawlings owned and operated a woolen mill there which allegedly contributed to the growth of the village by furnishing employment and a market for the farmer's wool. It is said that he was progressive in his endeavors as a manufacturer, and went so far as to purchase a machine for making cloth, but went too far beyond his means in doing so. He also owned and operated a distillery.

William S. and Martha Rawlings Were the parents of two sons, James and Thomas, who settled in the vicinity of Quincy. James had a daughter Mary who married Nathan Barnett. I personally knew their son, Newton Barnett, who lived at Springhills in this county. Thomas Rawlings was the father of my informant, William Joshua Rawlings.

After the death of his first wife, William S. married Vashti Gregg. They were the parents of six children. Of these, Austin went to Iowa and died there. He had a son, William, which seems to be a favorite name in the Rawlins. Another son, John Douglasss, ran away from home and saw service in the Civil War. After the war, he settled in Texas. His whereabouts were unknown to his home folks until he finally applied for a pension; whereupon, a pension agent came to Quincy to gather evidence to establish his claim. Thus his place of residence finally became disclosed to his relatives. Sanders Cornwallis, another son, also served in the Civil War and died in Libby Prison. Susie, the youngest daughter, lived to rear a family of six children. She married, first, Philip Grafton and settled in Quincy. They reared five children. After the death of Mr. Granton she married _____ Cloninger. One daughter was born to this marriage. The names of her children may be found by referring to the Rawlings family diagram.

William S. Rawlings died Feb. 19, 1865. His remains lie in a little neglected church yard a short distance east of Quincy on the site of Olive Chapel. A modest stone marks the grave of this pioneer settler in Ohio.

  Notes for James Rawlings:
The History of Champaign County, Ohio, Chicago, W.R. Beers & Co., 1881 Pages 682-683:

JAMES RAWLINGS, retired farmer, Urbana. For more than a half-century Mr. Rawlings has been identified with the business interests of this county, and has been one of those whose labors have been crowned with financial success. His life has ever been characterized by an earnestness in his business that makes a success of life in its many phases. His parents, Thomas and Marv Triby, were married in Loudoun Co., Va., from which State they emigrated to Fleming Co., Ky., as early as 1795. Their children were named Elizabeth, William S., Barbara, Melinda, James, Sarah, Austin and John E. Five of these came to Ohio and settled in this county. William came in advance of the others, settling on the land adjoining that which is now the home farm of our subject. His arrival dates back to 1814. James came in 182'3, and the others at later dates, all being unmarried when first. coming. The marriage of James to Miss Susannah I. McRoberts was celebrated in 1829, and soon after his first purchase of land was made. The farms in this neighborhood skirted the tract known as Pretty Prairie, and were at an early day overrun with brush, instead of the heavy woodlands that covered most of the county. Mr. Rawlings has made nearly all the improvements on the farm. Ile is one of the self-made men of this county, having commenced life with a very small capital, but economy, backed by judicious investments, has brought its reward, and for the past thirty years he has been a prominent money loaner, having disposed of most of his land, and he has for a number of years made his home with his son-in-law, J. P. Knight. The children of Mr. Rawlings are six in number-William J. W., Mary M., Jane E., Thomas, James H. and Douglas W. William is the husband of Miss Elsetta Mumper ; Mary M. wedded Thomas M. Todd ; Jane E. is the wife of John P. Knight; Thomas married Emily Humes; James H. married Laura Townley, and Douglas W. married her sister, Alice Townley. All are living near the old home, and are numbered among the successful business men of Champaign County. There is surely no more pleasant part of Ohio than the immediate neighborhood in which Mr. Rawlings resides, and the fine improvements made by the energetic farmers present a strange contrast to the wild woods and log cabins of those who first settled the country, of whom numerous descendants are left that represent their name. Mrs. Rawlings died May 2, 1849, leaving behind a record of a pure and stainless life. In 1864 Mr. Rawlings was again married, to Mrs. Jane Osborne. whose death occurred February 25, 1865. The father of our subject, Thomas Rawlings, was born in 1758, and died in 1839. James was born in 1803, and his wife, Susannah, in 1810. The record made by Mr. Rawlings should ever be a source of pride to his children, and his memory cherished as a sacred gift. James H. and D. W. Rawlings were both soldiers in the war of the rebellion, and served with honor in Co. "G," 134th O.V.I.

Notes for John Attie Boggs:


[LBoggsToCindy.FTW] From Kent Lewis

!DEATH: His death is also reported to have been Nov 15, 1862. His death is also said to b e 2 June 1862. The date I have used is given by Marshall Depue, his grandson, as April 2, 186 2. However Marshall's sister Mrs. Malinda Parsons of Jackson County, WV thinks it was Jan 2 1 862. His grandson William Boggs s/o Lawrence Boggs in a letter to his daughter Juliet gives t he date of 2 June 1862. In the same letter William Boggs also states that his grandparents li ved together for 72 years as husband and wife.

!BURIAL:A record indicates that John Boggs was buried on the Bailey Young farm on Clover.

!MARRIAGE: John Boggs and Susan Drennen were married 25 Apr 1787 in Greenbrier, County by Joh n McGrill, a catholic priest. Recorded in Greenbrier Book 1, page 9

!MILITARY: John Boggs claims to have been one of five brothers that were in the battle of Poi nt Pleasant, the opening battle of the Revolutionary War.

!BIOGRAPHY: When John Boggs moved into what is now Roane County, WV, he brought with him an e ntourage of about 50 men, women, children and slaves. There were over 20 slaves. The slaves l ived with the family and shared in all activities and work. There was a large communal kitche n. Most of the game was brought in by his son, Thomas Boggs who was considered the best hunte r in the family.
The men, black and White, went ahead of the wagons and cleared the land for
a roadway. Their destination was a tract of land consisting of 8000 acres along Spring Creek . From a point about two miles above the site where Spencer stands today down both sides of t he creek for about ten miles. This land came from the so called Tillitson Patent, which late r proved to be fraudulent and John Boggs spent vast sums of money protecting his investment . He later acquired more land bringing his total holdings to nearly 30,000 acres. Where he go t the resources to do this, is not known. During his lifetime he gave to each of his childre n a farm. He grew tired of the fighting between his children and in-laws over his estate an d will and bought a place at the headwaters of Spring Creek and made a deal with his grandso n Marshall Depue that if he would look after him and his wife in their old age that he woul d give him what ever was left. His estate was substantial. Marshall Depue agreed to this arra ngement and cared for them until they each died.

!TAX LIST: Greenbrier Co., VA. 1810 Tax List (Sam McClung's List) Boggs, John, 1 tithable , 2 slaves, 4 horses.

!Hist Background: John and Susan Boggs lived for several years in the Meadows of Greenbrier . He earned a living as a grazer. He apparently did well financially, as when he left,in 1830 , to relocate to what is now Roane County, West Virginia he took his large family and at leas t 25 slaves with him. They settled on the lower reaches of Spring Creek on at least 8000 acre s of land. It is reported to be as high as 16000 acres. This was bought from Benjamin Willar d of Parkersburg, Wood County, WV. The deed is recorded in the Jackson County Clerk's Office , Book 1, page 6. It was known as the Tilton Patent. Apparently the patent was fraudulent o r at least the patent had been sold more than once, John Boggs defended this patent in cour t and by way of settlement with squatters until he grew tired of it and in he abandande d the property and purchased a new stake.

!Will:In a gift deed, dated 11 April 1833, he left to his son John L Boggs,
Jr certain items. This is the first mention of JOHN L Boggs, that I found. I do not know wher e this son came from. I have recorded four sons, Lawrence, James, Thomas and William. The ter m son was used differently in those times, it could be argued that he was referring to a neph ew or a son of a cousin by the same name.

!Gift Deed: I, John Boggs, for and in consideration of natural love and affection and appreci ation I owe my children: I give to my sons Lawrence and Thomas Boggs in trust for the purpos e hereinafter mentioned my Negro slaves
viz: Matilda, Mary, Molly, Bob, Martha, Perry, Mariah and George, in trust for the use and be nefit of my children, namely, Margaret, Sarah, Avaline B.,Matilda and John.

      Familytreemaker.com 3/4/1999 Betty D. Renick. John and Susan lived in Meadows of Greenbrier Co VA. They owned a large plantation in partnership with Charles McClung. They were stock dealers (cattle). John sold his share of the plantation and purchased 8000 acres in Roane County (now WV). He apparently lost this land due to faulty deed, but later purchased land between Spencer and Reedy and between Reedy Creek and Spring Creek. (From Roane Co WV Family History 1989). According to Andrew L. Vandale's biography (son of Sarah Boggs who married Vandel) the families came in 1832. (quoted by Bishop). John Boggs, a son of James Charles and Margaret Jane (Sharp) Boggs, was born in Chester County PA February 14, 1763 and died in Roane County VA (WV) November 15, 1861. He was probably at the battle of Point Pleasant in 1774. He married Susan Drennan in Greenbrier County VA (WV) April 23, 1787. Susan, a daughter of Lawrence Drennan, was born about 1767. (Family History from internet). Daniel Deweese says that John was one of the very early settlers on Spring Creek in what is now Roane County, WV. Bishop shows a son, Hawkins, but suspect this was a middle name or a nickname for one of his sons. Fact 1: 1774, in Battle of Point Pleasant. Fact 2: 1830, one of the very early settlers on Spring Creek in Roane Co. WV (at age 73). Fact 3: Was in lower Spring Creek in 1830. Fact 4: Wealthy & acquired nearly 8000 acres of land. Fact 5: 1500 were in Grace community. Fact 6: 20 slaves-some later settlers live in those slave cabins. Fact 7: Died November 15 1861, some say he was 104 which would be born 1757.
     
      Notes of Maud Lucile Morrison/Lee Smith/Warren Boggs, received from Raymond C. Boggs, 3/11/1999. Mar 19, 1997-John and Susan lived as man and wife 72 years. West Virginia. Another entry shows June 2, 1962 as date of death. this same record shows Susan, his wife, dying Dec. 29, 1855. I wonder if they accidentally copied her year of death as his. If he died in 1862, as this record shows, he would have been 99 years old. *** copy of letter (Herbert is Warren's brother (Maybe half brother): RR #2 box 363, Covington, Ohio, April 13, 19?? (87?). Mr. Herbert L. Boggs, 2842 Canon Street, San Diego 8, California. Dear Sir: I understand from Mr. Warren Boggs that you will be soon sailing to Ireland and I hope this reaches you before your departure. Haven't only recently written to Warren. I do not know the extent of your data and it could well be that I have no more than you but in case I do and if it helps you I offer the following. Warren Boggs stated that about 4 Boggs families came to america, I have 9. Ezekial Boggs, from Ireland, 1741, Delaware. John Boggs (Livingston) from Ireland, 1704, Maryland.

The earliest reference of Boggs that I know of was in 1180 in Somerset Co., Eng. * The name was of English origin, the first spelling being Boggis. This was shortened into Boggs. Branches settled in Scotland and Ireland and America. Only one arms and crest is recorded in the name. The name Boggs was introduced into England in the year 1066 by one who was a Col. DuBogus at the time of the Norman invasion under William the Conquerer. Later this name bacame anglicized by dropping the Du, which denoted royalty, and changed the Bogus to Boggis to Boggs. They were very prominent through the Kingdom and their interests spread to Ireland. time could not permit me to dig into the info I have but I hope this will help a little. Sincerely, James L.

      JOHN BOGGS 1746-1862 and Slave's Names. note the date of birth. John Boggs gave in April 11, 1833, several of his slaves to his children. In each case the deed started out as follows: I, John Boggs, in consideration for the natural love, affection, and appreciation for which I owe my children, I give to...... To: Lawrence and Thomas, my sons in trust, Mateldia, Mary, Holly, Bog, Martha, Perry, Marlinda and George and their natural increase. In trust for the use and benefit of my children and their heirs. * To: Margaret, I give my slave Matelda. * To: Sara, I give my slave Molly and her future increase. * To: Avalina, I give my slave Mary and her future increase and after her death, her lawful heirs. * to: Malinda, my daughter, I give my slave Mar, etc. * To: Matelda, I give my slaves, Bog, Perry and Mather. * To: Johathan, "Than", I give my slave Mariah, George, and their future increase. * In testimony, I hereby set my hand and signature, John Boggs, April 11, 1833. At the writing of this deed, John was eighty-seven, as there is no mention of James R. Boggs, 1800-1884. His son would have been thirty-three. I suspect that he had already given him slaves. We know James R. and Harriet Walker Boggs had land near Old John's place where he lived with William, his son. We also know James R. Boggs had slaves, as several lived and died on Duck Run, James R.'s old place (now the Waitman Bailey place). * Writers comment: While doing research on the Boggs, I discovered many interesting things. It's amazing how active Old John Boggs was in his extreme old age. Remember he was eighty-four when he arrived in (now) Roane County in 1828. He and the Chapman's bought and sold land all over what is now Roane County. 't know who this author is, but since the copied page appears to have been bound originally in a spiral notebook similar to other pages from "The Boggs Family" by Alvil & Martha Boggs Rhods, I assume this page is from that book * Another interesting fact: James Abraham Vandale sold to Leonard Simmons, a slave named Ben, a Mallato boy twenty-five years old and a female child, nine months, named Emma Minerva for $1,000., May 23, 1857. Page 17.\
     
      John Boggs 1740-1862 again, check the date of birth. From Deed Book 1 - Spencer, West Virginia. Date: October 30, 1857. Writers Note: This is from John Boggs in the last years of his life. In fact, five years before his death, he and Marshall DePue had moved from the Reedy area. He to get rid of the bickering over property he had given his children and grandchildren. They had purchased a farm in partnership. This deed is near to being a will. However, it is in Deed Book One at the Roane County Courthouse. * I, John Boggs for natural love and affection, and one dollar in hand, and further considerations, do convey to my grandson Marshall DePue, who bounds himself to maintain and support the party of the first part during his natural lifetime, and further contracts himself, and bounds himself to settle and discharge the rest of the purchase prices of land owned in both our names and two (2) notes, One executed to Jay Smith, and one (1) to Armstrong and Ingreram, and any outstanding taxes. * For the cause and consideration above, I, John Boggs, do hereby grant and convey to Marshall DePue, all my interests in and to all my interest in hand by whatever rights to Marshall DePue, given this day unto my hands. Signed: John Boggs. Witness: David Simmons. October 30, 1857. * John and his wife lived there, until John died, in the second year of the civil war, 1862. His wife died several years later. both are buried at the Edward Post Farm, near the Walnut Grove Post Office. (This in 1920). * Evalena Boggs, daughter of John Attie Boggs and Susan Drennen Boggs, married Beniah DePue. He died in 1883. His father was "Henry, the Patriot" who was a messenger for Gen. George Washington at Valley Forge, VA. Evalena (Boggs) and Beniah DePue had two sons, Marshall and Henry. Marshall DePue was born in 1833, died 1907. He is the one John Attie Boggs lived with last and gave his remaining property to.\
     
      "The Boggs Family" Alvin & Martha Ann (Boggs) Rhods. John Boggs, his wife Susan (Drennen), their children, and surely some grandchildren, plus sons and daughters "in laws" and as many as twenty-five slaves came to Roane county, Virginia in 1828. They all settled in the northern part of the county, mostly in the Reedy area. He purchased from Benjamin Willard of Parkersburg, 8,000 acres for $2,000. this was the Tilton Survey Tract #10, and from William Tilton, 4,000 acres known as the Tilton Tract #47. These lands were a grant to William Tilton in 1787. John sold to his daughter Nancy and her husband John Dillon Vandale, 1,475 acres for five hundred dollars. This was on Spring Creek, below Nancy's Run. * John Boggs contracted to buy the Henderson lands on Conrad Run at Reedy Creek; a clear title could not be obtained. This land was sold by an Issiah Enoch, who was from Pennsylvania. He lived on the Little Kanawha River, at the mouth of Hughes River. Later this same land was purchased by William Stewart, who paid $1,000 in gold for it. He lost it also. The problem with land titles back then were the surveys. There were so many grants and rights, known as Corn Rights, Tomahawk Rights, Grants and Surveys. Many surveys overlapped, with large gaps of unsurveyed land and land lost or foreclosed on. Mass confusion existed. * On January 1, 1831, John Boggs purchased 8,000 acres, Tilton Survey #10 and another 4,000 acres known as Tilton Survey #47. The deeds are on record at Ripley, Jackson County, Deed Book #7, page #6. So he ended up with 12,000 acres of land for approximately $3000. He settled where Ben DePue lived in 1920. He lived with his son William Boggs. He gave or sold to James R. Boggs, his son, a farm that was owned in 1920 by Albert and Gay Sargent; this from the account of Jerima B. Miller in 1920 at Wellington, West Virginia. John Boggs had another son, Thomas Boggs who was sheriff of Wirt County in 1830. Thomas Boggs built a log house at the mouth of Burnt House Run. A wood fire burnt the log cabin and that's what gave the name to Burnt House Run. * The above lands, of two (2) surveys designated as #40 and #47 of William Tilton's survey. This land was a grant to William Tilton, by the Commonwealth of Virginia, by patent bearing the date, 4th August 1785. John then sold or gave the land to his various children. * John Boggs was a prosperous grazer, and stockdealer in Greenbrier Co., and was in partnership with Charles McClung. He was the son of William (Grandfather Billie) McClung, and the grandson of John McClung, 1706-1788, who had immigrated from Northern Ireland. Charles McClung married Charity Vandale, Sept. 19, 1805, by Rev. Josiah Osborne, a Baptist preacher. Married in Greenbrier Co., VA, they later moved to the border of Greenriver, Kentucky. Her parents were Abraham Vandale and Sara Boggs Vandale, 1792-1857. In all her letters to her sister written 2-14-1819, she signed them Mary. The only answer I can come up with is her name was Mary Sara or Sara Mary. Sara was the daughter of John Attie Boggs and Susan (Day) Drennen.

The History Of Roane County 1927 By William H. Bishop

Pages 46 - 48 -Much of the settling was done by groups of relatives; Spencer District; the Boggs, Vandales &; Tanners, Millers, Carpenters Depues; Greathouses and Wrights.---------The early settlers of Roane County were imbued with high appreciation of prospects here; they were men of means; John Boggs came with his family from Greenbrier County, bringing with him some twenty negro slaves; he gradually sold all these; They proved unprofitable in this kind of county; and the white man found delight in working.

Page 280 ---John Boggs, a Virginian, coming by way of Greenbrier County settled on a tract of 1500 acres of land on lower Spring Creek about the year 1830; he was a man of large means, bringing with him some twenty negro slaves. John Boggs also bought a large tract of "The Tilton Survey" some two thousand acres or more extending across both Spring Creek and Reedy, this proved to be a "Junior Patent" and he lost most of this tract; he had several sons and daughters, of whom the sons Charles and Hawkins figure in the history of Reedy District; and of his daughters we mention here Sarah, the wife of James Vandal, who came at the same time or one year later, as Andrew L. Vandal, their son, in his biography says they came in year 1832. Evaline Belmont Boggs, who married Beniah Depue Sr; and Margaret Boggs, who married Stephen Hicks, were daughters of this John Boggs. The Vandal, and Depues became large landholders and made big farms on lower Spring Creek; James Vandal and Sarah, His wife reared three sons and one daughter; the sons were Andre L., Jonathan, and William B.(Note goes on to give accounts of some of the granchildren of Sarah Vandal.)

Pages 282-283 - William Greathouse and wife, Nancy, a daughter of Stephen Hicks, settled about the year 1830 on a tract of land of 400 acres, given to her by her father, adjoining the Samuel Tanner tract on its north. The Spencer Cemetery on the Spencer and Ravenswood turnpike is a part of this land, and was given by Nancy Greathouse, as a community burial place.(Note Nancy got the land from her grandfather John Boggs and not her father.)

Page 284 - Stephen Hicks and his wife, Margaret, who was a daughter of John Boggs, mentioned as settling on lower Spring Creek near the year 1830; came her with with the father, John Boggs, from Greenbrier County; Two of their sons, remembered as having cleared back the forest and farms are Lara Hicks, who built on his farm one mile above the town of Spencer, a water grist mill which ground the breadstuffs for the community many years, down to about the year 1879. The other , Washington Hicks, who married Delilah Burdett, made a home farm on lower Spring Creek. Of his several children the best known is Armstrong Hicks, a frequent visitor in the city, noted for his Stalwart frame and full gray beard.

Page 455 - Boggs of Smithfield - James R. Boggs was born in Greenbrier County, western Virginia May 22, 1800, son of John Boggs, born in Ireland, and Susan (Drinnen) Boggs, his wife a Virginian lady; John claims to have had five brothers at the battle of Point Pleasant. James R. Boggs was twice married; First wife Harriet Walkup, and their children were Susan, John Nathaniel, and Mary J. James R. boggs second wife was Lacy Ann O'Brien, whom he married in gilmer County, western, Virginia in the year 1845 and with his family came in the next year and settled on Middle Henry Fork, then a part of Gilmer County.( Goes on to describe the family of James Boggs)

Same Book- Depue of Reedy & Spencer. Marshall Depue was born Jan. 23, 1833, son of Beniah and Evaline Belmont (Boggs)Depue , at their home on Spring Creek near Spencer and the father inlaw, John Boggs, owned about the same time of the birth of Marshall, several thousand acres of forest lands on Spring Creek. At 26 years of age he met and married Miss Elizabeth Jarrett, born February 24, 1841, daughter of Eli andNancy Newhouse Jarrett, then of Jarrett's Ford, on the Elk of the Great Kanawha. (Story also lists children and grandchildren of Marshall.)

(NEW) Pioneers In Roane County, W.Va. - Historical Notes on Early Settlement of Reedy Valley With Notice of Pioneers of Spring Creek and The West Fork - John A. House 1906 - On Page 45 begins a lengthy history of the Boggs family. Page 50 states that Peggy Boggs a daughter of John Boggs and Susan Drennen had married Stephen Hicks and that Stephen was the father of Larry Hicks- Pages 60-61 Has a story told by Charles Boggs on his grandfather John Boggs shooting a bear while out on a hunting trip with Jim Hicks a son of Steve Hicks who had married Peggy Boggs, and lived at the Cyrus Goff place and this bear was killed in the early 1840's. --- Page 107(Sketch on the Blosser Family) states that Ike Blosser had married Margaret (Charity) Hicks.

NOTES FROM KATHY HUGHES

Notes for Susan(Susanna) DRENNIN
      Family history of Elizabeth Smith Roberts, as compiled by Albert Lee Smith, says John and Susan lived as man and wife for 72 years. Name listed as Susan. !familytreemaker.com 3/4/1999 Betty D. Renick. Several of the Drennin family were killed by Indians. It is said that Susan and her brother were captured by the indians, that her father was scalped and left for dead, but that he recovered. (Roane Co Family History p. 192). A Walker relative says that one Drennen girl was raised by a Major Renick after one of the Indian raids left her an orphan. Marriage date also showing as 4/25/1786.
     
      Don Norman lists marriage date as 4/25/1786.
     
      Received from Louise Fendrich...not sure of source, but probably "The Boggs Family" by Alvin L. & Nartha Ann (Boggs) Rhods. John Attie Boggs probably came to Greenbrier Co., VA, along with his younger brother Francis Charles Boggs; all records I had previously show Francis was his Older brother. they both purchased land in Greenbrier Co., and the neighboring co., in 1775. John married Susan (Day) Drennen on April 25, 1786; she was twenty-two, he was forty years old. She was born 1764 and died 1866. They were married by John McCall, a catholic. this is recorded in Greenbrier co., Book #2, page #9. Her parents were Lawrence and Sara (Day) Drennen; her grandparents were Walter and Susan (Wyle) Drennen. Nathaniel Day was a son of Christopher Day, date of birth 1635 in Wales Co. * Her parents were killed by Indians, along with several other men or boys. They also killed a baby brother or sister. The Indians surprised the men and boys in a corn field where they were hoeing corn. The men had stacked their weapons, and hoed down a long row of corn away from their weapons. the indians then surprised them and killed and scalped them; one survived being scalped. the indians then went to the cabin, broke in and took the women and children captive. they also took a baby, cut it in half, then hung the two halves in a tree. they took Susan's mother, her and a brother, plus a horse, and made their escape. Susan said the next morning that her mother was exhausted and unable to move, so an indian walked up behind her and killed her with a tomahawk; some days later and at night, the indians placed an old indian on guard. He was sitting on a rock, but kept nodding off to sleep. Susan noticed the horse was looking past the old indian at something. she sat very quiet; suddenly a huge volley of shots rang out, and a band of White settlers attacked the camp and killed all the indians and scalped them and threw their bodies into the fire. I have a longer and more detailed account, written by James H. Hodam, great-nephew of John Boggs and Susan Drennin. * She was then raised by Major Renniy and his wife, who was the sister to James Madison, who was or became an American President. This was on squatters land, purchased by John Boggs, on little Sewell Valley. NOTE: KH. IN VIEW OF INFO RE COURT RECORDS AND PENSION ACCOUNTS - SEE LAWRENCE DRENNEN - I BELIEVE THIS ACCOUNT REFERS TO SUSAN'S MOTHER SARAH DAY, NOT TO SUSAN. I BELIEVE IT WAS SARAH DAY'S MOTHER AND FATHER THAT WERE KILLED AND SCALPED. ALSO SEE SARAH DAY'S NOTES FOR HER POSSIBLE PARENTAGE.\\\

Her father John refused permission, and went on a trip to Lynchburg, Virginia to buy cattle. While there he had a premonition that something was wrong at home. He hurried back home. When he arrived it was too late; his favorite daughter had hanged herself. I suspect that she was his oldest child at 21 years old. Many think that this tragedy caused him to make the move to Roane County.

      Marilyn Craft <mcraft30@yahoo.com>. May 12, 1999. Nancy Boggs, b. c. 1788 Greenbrier co., WV, m. John Vandal 28 Oct 1809 Greenbrier Co. WV. John b.c. 1782, s/o Abraham Sr. & Mary (Dillon). Mary b. in Germany, she and Abraham both died in Austead, WV. John's brother James m. Sarah Boggs a sister of Nancy. In 1830 the Boggs clan, John & Susan and their children, including Vandals & Depues moved to Roane Co., WV. The party is said to have numbered 50 something and included several slaves. From there they scattered out into the surrounding counties. * Nancy and John Vandal neve had any children together but both had children with other people. John m. Rachel Wiseman 2 May 1827 in ?Greenbrier Co., WV. He was also either married to or lived with Abbie Blake. Have a list of his children but no birthdates so don't know which child goes with which mother. Not even sure that list of children is correct. Will send that and my guesses if you're interested. * Nancy did run away with George Boggs but I'm not sure that Mariah/Maria or MDW were his children. Nancy also lived with a Marmaduke Williams and Maria named a son Marmaduke. M.D.W. may have been his son. I've never been able to find out what those initials stand for but his nickmane was Dukey. There's a 10 year age difference between Maria & MDW though, she was b. c. 1805, he was b. June 1916. Maria was born before her mother married John Vandal and Nancy was supposed to have run away with George Boggs after she married Vandal?!?! ?! When does Marmaduke Williams fit in? I have speculated that MDW was his son and Maria named a son after her brother but that she was not Williams daughter. So whose daughter was she? I have George Boggs as a s/o Andrew Boggs of Elk River, WV. Not sure but think that would be in Greenbrier Co., I don't have parents of Andrew. Did Nancy have Maria by George then marry Vandal and later run away with George? I don't have death dates for George or Nancy but I do have a note that she drowned herself. .... So, Kathy, are you more confused now than when you started reading this. I don't think we will ever know for sure who Maria's father was. Maybe a death record for her or MDW would name their father but I've never found one. When I was still living in SE Ohio I made numerous trips to courthouses in Roane, Wirt, Calhoun, Ritchie, Jackson and Wood counties. Vandal is the correct spelling and of course the pronunciation changes. It's an old Scottish name. It's still a very common name in Roane Co.
     
      HUNTING FOR A CRAZY WOMAN (THE STORY OF THE SUICIDE OF NANCY BOGGS VANDAL-BY JAMES H. HODAM [great-nephew of John and Susan Drennin Boggs. One of the odd characters and well known one of the neighborhood where I lived on Spring Creek, West Virginia, fifty years ago, was an old woman by the name of Nancy Vandal. In her younger days, she had inherited a fine farm and other prop. from her father's estate; but, but the time she was sixty years old, she and her husband had run through the most of it and became converts of Mormonism; and for several years they tramped over a portion of Western Virginia, preaching the Mormon faith and practicing medicine as root and herb doctors. In 1863, old Johnny Vandal, her husband, died of old age and delirium tremens; and Aunt Nancy as she was generally called, quit roving about and made her home with her numerous kinfolks in the neighborhood. She was considered unbalanced somewhat in her mind, but harmless and kind in her disposition, and was kindly welcomed to any home who fancy promoted heer to stop, which was generally a few days at a time. She had become very feeble and was over seventy years old when she suddenly renounced the Morman faith and joined the Baptist church of which all her relatives were members. After being immersed by the minister, she wanted to be immersed again. On his refusing to comply, she made a couple of attempts to baptize herself in the creek. In June 1856, she left the home of Wm. Beverlin early one morning, saying she was going to her son's home a half a mile away. She was not missed nor any inquiries about her for several days, when the news was passed from house to house that Aunt Nancy Vandal had disappeared. The people of the whole community for miles around came to search the woods and creek. Some thought she had wandered in the brush and timber nearby, while many believed she had drowned herself in Spring Creek, which was not far from the place where she stayed overnight. * There was a deep, rocky ravine near the home of Mr. Beverlin, which entered the creek a half a mile away in a lonesome, out-of-the-way place where seldom anyone ever passed, either down the ravine or along the creek. Her little red shawl that she always had with her was found on a bush near the ravine soon after the search commenced. It had rained heavily the day before, so that all foot prints had been obliterated; but, after the shawl was found, it was generally thought she perished in the storm or was hid in some of the numerous clefts and holes in the rocks of the vicinity. Two days and a half the search was made for miles around; and every brush, thicket, cleft of rocks, or drifts piled along the creek and the holes of water sufficient to cover a body were carefully looked into by the eager and pathizing crowd of searchers. On the sixth day after her disappearance, it rained hard all day; and the creek became a raging torrent for two days. Uncle Tommy Boggs, a brother to the missing woman, had always contended that she had drowned herself; so, on the ninth day, after the water had run down, Uncle Tommy got about a dozen men to make a final search of the creek for several miles below the mouth of the.....[text missing]..... superstitious idea that, if a loaf of bread containing a bottle of quick silver was placed in the water in which the dead body of a person was sunk, the loaf would float to where the body was and stop. So they had my mother to make a loaf, and I carried it along ready for service. for several miles, the creek was closely searched by a dozen men and boys wading side by side up the stream, which was about four rods wide. The great part of the day was spent and the crowd was tired and hungry, when we got to the place where the hunt ahd left off before the rain. it was concluded that the search would be abandoned; and, having had no occasion to use the loaf of bread as intended we boys sat down on a log and ate it up, while the old men decided that it was useless to hunt longer. * But Uncle Tommy Boggs suggested, as we were only a short distance below the mouth of the ravine where the shawl was found, to go that way home. We walked up that way; and, as this locality had been diligently looked over several days before, we carelessly picked our way long the creek bank, which was steep and slippery in places. We had got nearly to the mouth of the ravine where a ledge of rock ran down the creek bank, and a large bunch of elders standing in the edge of water left us but a narrow passage way near the wather. Suddenly someone in front cried out "Look there"; and we saw a black sunbonnet hanging on the elder bush, two or three feet above the wather. Everyone knew it to be the missing woman's bonnet and that she had found a watery grave; and that the bonnet had caught on the bush during the high water, there was no doubt. Several men formed a line and slowly waded up the stream, which was nearly three feet deep and muddy here. When they came opposite to the mouth of the ravine, Wash Greathouse, who was near the end of the line about ten feet from the opposite shore, stumbled and nearly fell over something which I saw rise to the surface, dark and muddy. "There she is," yelled a dozen voice, while poor Wash was so frightened so he could not speak and was as White as a sheet. It certainly was one the worst sights I ever beheld. When the poor old body with her long White hair floating on the water was dragged to the bank and laid at the feet of a big sycamore tree, her brother Thomas Boggs, who was a justice of the peace, cooly picked out six men of the crowd and told them to act as a coroner's jury. * On the examination, it was found she had tied up 36 pounds of small stones in her underskirt and with her apron, and tied it around her neck, then waded out into the creek, which at that time was not more than a foot deep, and laid down in the water. The weight about her neck not only kept her head under water but prevented the body from washing downstream during the rain. the body was badly decomposed; and, while the jury was deliberating, a big red catfish [crawfish?] crawled out of her bosom and, spreading his ugly claws, defiantly threw himself back on his fins and glared at the sad crowd that surrounded him. From that day to this, I have detested crawfish and water beetles. * Such a death as poor "Old Hon", as her husband called her, chose to cut her thread of life was very uncommon in that day, but now is of common occurance.

      Chuck Hield - website revised - 1/25/2000. After John's first marriage to Nancy Boggs 28 Oct 1809, she ran off with a cousin, George Boggs, to Kentucky, where they had two children. * .... As written by Earl Vandal and reported by Violet M. Brown in the Vandal Newsletter, January, 1997: Nancy's first husband was John Vandal. the 2nd husband was Marma Duke Williams. he and Nancy had two children. Their names were Marma Duke Williams and Mariah Williams. the childrens' father died and Nancy, with her two children, Marma Duke and Mariah, went back to Nancy's father, John Boggs. He raised the children - therefore, the children went by the name of Boggs. For her third husband, she married Jim Maze and later married John Vandal again. NOTES: This appears to say: married John 1809, divorced. married Marmaduke Williams, widowed. married Jim Maze. Married John again ... and somewhere in there she supposedly ran off with George. PROBLEM: According to 1850 census (above) Mariah was born in abt 1794....BEFORE Nancy married John the first time. Censuses have been known to be wrong, however. 1860 indicates 1817, 1880 indicates she was born in 1820 \\
     
      Chuck Hield - e-mail, 27 Jan 2000. ...The information I have on the web site is a result of an article by Violet M. Brown in the January 97 newsletter. She wrote to Frances Lowe, our editor, and said this: Dear Frances, I am enclosing a copy of a letter that was found among some of Earl Vandal's correspondence that is contrary to previous information about Nancy Boggs and her two children. The copy of the letter that I am enclosing is self explanatory and was dated Oct. 2, 1921... Continues as previous paragraph. ... My great grandfather signed his name M.D.W. Boggs. The W. was for Williams, his father's last name. I feel that the error that was made in the past should be corrected for the record. Nancy did not have her children by a Charley or George Boggs as previously stated. Violet M. Brown...Route 1, Box 162-D, Reedy, WV 25270-9726.\\

LAST PAGE MISSING. AUTHOR UNKNOWN, BUT WOULD BE A GRANDSON OF JAMES AND SARAH BOGGS VANDALE. Violet Brown says it was written to Earl Vandal. She goes on to say: Earl Vandal had a lot of notes & information & who wrote the letter to Earl the last page was lots. I'd believe this letter anytime over the story about George being the father. All these roads around here were dirt and sometimes it would be weeks before anything was recorded.

  Notes for Harriet Walkup:


[LBoggsToCindy.FTW]

!Harriett Walkup and James Boggs were married 28 Jan 1824 by the Rev. John
McElhenny in Greenbrier County, VA. Source--Court records.
I believe that Harriet was the daughter of Nathaniel Walkup of Greenbrier
County, WV, unproven this date, 9-24-95.

!On the 1850 Census of Nicholas County of WV, there is a James Boggs age 17,
living with James Walkup, age 39, and a Miram Walkup, age 52. Next door at
family #299, is Nathaniel Walkup, age 73 and Eliza Walkup, age 23. They are
livng with the Robert Campbell family. These Walkups were related to Harriet
according to Mary Mae Lewis Corbett (1903-1992), Harriet was her g-grandmother.

!Harriet had 4 children between 1842 and 1857. They were apparently the
children of Stephen Hicks. It not known if they married. The census of 1860
shows her as head of the family and and with Madison 8, Harrison 7, Eliza 6,
and Evalin 3, living on Spring Creek, in Wirt County, VA. The last name of the children is sh own as Boggs. Madison was known as Mattie Hicks and when Eliza married she used the name of E liza Hicks. On the 1980 Census of Roane County, WV, Spencer Dist., page 34 there appears a Ha rriett Hicks, 79 yrs,
mother-in-law, living in the family of Job Word, 37 and his wife Evaline, 28.
This would fit with Harriet Walkup Boggs' age and place of birth. Evaline was
her youngest daughter by Stephen Hicks.
