In Reply to: Nancy Ann OGLESBY M. 1762 James MARTIN by Gene Rooks of 1138

 

Brett Martin [martinba94@aol.com] states that Nancy was the daughter of Thomas [my 6th-great grandfather], according to the Cumberland County marriage book. James Martin was surety for the marriage bond of Thomas Oglesby and Martha Bradley.

Thomas and his brother Richard were sons of Thomas Oglesby who patented land in Goochland about 1745-6. Have been unable to definitely link Thomas, Sr., to the Richard Oglesby who died intestate about 1730 in Goochland, although there are published accounts which state this.

Notes for Giles Martin Sr.:

General Notes:

 

Giles Martin first appears on the Patrick Co. VA personal property tax records in 1793. A well respected Martin researcher has tracked the tax records each year through 1837, showing Giles on the records each year, except 1829, 1832 and 1834. As she has pointed out a person needed to be 21 to appear on the tax rolls. As William Martin appears next to Giles 1791-1803, it would appear he is Giles father, and when Giles came of age in 1793, he first appears on the rolls indicating he would have been born about 1772

Notes for Sarah Arnold:

General Notes:

Marriage license for Giles and Nancy obtained 8 Jan 1794. Sarah Arnold Martin filed a widow's pension for her husband's service in the War of 1812. It states that Giles was drafted at Patrick County in February 1815 and served three months and 17 days. He was honorably discharged at Richmond on 19 Feb 1815. Apparently Giles was granted 40 acres of land 10 Feb 1854 which was disposed of before Sarah made application for pension.

 

The pension board questioned why Sarah had signed her mark and then on a subsequent document had signed her name. Her reply - "She signed the declaration for bounty land warrant when her mother - one brother and two of her children had typhoid fever & no hope was entertained of the recovery of her mother or children. All were in the same house and she supposed she made her mark because she was in such a state of distress and nervous excitement she did not feel like she could write her name - and therefore made her mark. The signature to the declaration for pension is in her own handwriting." 7 Jun 1879 An examiner record dated 13 Aug 1888 states that Sarah Martin who is seventy-one year old resides at Mayo Forge, Va. with her son Sonny Martin. 2 July 1879 living with Jno. A. Martin. 2 Jul 1879 "I remember well that when my mother and brother had fever the neighbors were afraid of contracting the disease, and would not go into the house. I took my three children to my fathers (sic) to wait on the sick, and while I was there my children took the disease and were very ill for a long time." - Sarah Martin - all from pension records at the National Archives.

The following is a transcript for pension of the Revolutionary War by James Gardner:

"On the 18th day of April 1844, Carroll County, Virginia, James Gardner, a resident in said county aged 88 years, declared that he entered the service of the United States. He believed in the year 1777 under Captain Sessions as a substitute in the place of one Aaron Tuckimer, he then residing in Sussex County, New Jersey. The company in which he served was called on to serve a tour of nine months and joined the army commanded by General Maxwell (??) Elizabeth Town. General Washington reviewed the troops and was saluted by them. He served on this tour three months in actual service as well as he recollected and received from his captain a written discharge which was lost among other papers in a pocket book which he lost. During this tour he was engaged in a skirmish with the British on Staten Island and received a slight wound by a rifle ball across his shin bone. He was afterwards, he thought perhaps the same year, drafted into Captain McCambly's Company in a regiment commanded by Colonel Hawthorne, Josiah Woods being lieutenant of the company. He marked to Fishkill Plains in the State of New York where he was stationed. During this time General Burgoyne and his army were taken. In this expedition he served two months but was discharged without receiving a written discharge. He still continued to reside in Sussex County, New Jersey.

 

Some time after that he believed in the year 1779, he volunteered under Colonel Soward in New York and marched upwards of 150 miles to bhe headwaters of Delaware River against the Indians who were commanded by Brent and Butler. There was an engagement which took place on the Mongroupe (??) River in which the whites were repulsed. On this tour he was in actual service one month and received no written discharge.

 

Afterwards, he believed in the 1780, he was drafted into the company of Captain John Kinsdale, William Hopkins being the lieutenant in the State of New York, near the line of New Jersey, and guarded British prisoners taken at Stoney Point to Philadelphia. He was in service three weeks on this tour for which he received no written discharge. Afterwards (he believes during the same year) he was drafted under Captain James Soward, William Hopkins, Lieutenant, in New Jersey and marched to New Bridge in said state where he was stationed. On this tour he served six weeks. He has no recollections of having received a written discharge. He further declared that he had no documentary evidence of his services and that he knew of no one who can testify to them. He employed an agent some years since to attend to an application for a pension and did not know until recently that the application had not been made.

 

John Cock, clergyman residing in Carroll County, Virginia and Joel Ashworth residing in the same county certified that they werer acquainted with James Gardner and they believed him to be 88 years of age; that he was respected and believed in the neighborhood where he resided to have been a soldier of the Revolution, and that we concur that position.

 

He was born in the year 1756 in the State of New York, Fishkill County, and his age was recorded in my bible now in my house. He was living in Sussex County, New Jersey, when called into service. He moved to Shenandoah County, Virginia, thence to the county of Franklin in the same state, thence to the county of Montgomery in the same state, and thence to the county of Grayson, now Carroll where he resided, and has resided for the term of twenty-five years.

 

He first entered the service as a substitute for Aaron Tuckimer; he volunteered once and was drafted for the other tour he served. He recollected General Washington, General Maxwell, Colonel Soward, Colonel Hethorn, Captains (??), Soward and McCambly, and lieutenants Williams, Hopkins, and Josiah Woods. He could not recollect the numbers of the regiment. He received one written discharge signed by Captain Ireson (??), which he lost among other papers with his pocketbook.

 

August 12, 1850, Isaac A. Gardner of Glades Burrough, Carroll County, Virginia wrote to the Secretary of the Interior requesting information about a warrant.

 

Another letter from James Gardner, Jr., Hillsville, Virginia shows that James Gardner was deceased on ___ day of ___ 1849. He was the son of James Gardner, deceased, and of the same name. His mother was living, and was the widow of James Gardner, deceased. Her name was Tabitha Gardner, and they had eleven children now living, viz: William, John, Mary, Jane, Nancy, James, Mathew, Elizabeth, Sarah, Alexander and Washington. The widow Tabitha Gardner was administratix and John Quesenberry was adminstrator of the estate of the said James Gardner, deceased.

 

The claim was not allowed as proof of six months service was not furnished as required by pension law."

The following is a transcript for pension of the Revolutionary War by James Gardner:

"On the 18th day of April 1844, Carroll County, Virginia, James Gardner, a resident in said county aged 88 years, declared that he entered the service of the United States. He believed in the year 1777 under Captain Sessions as a substitute in the place of one Aaron Tuckimer, he then residing in Sussex County, New Jersey. The company in which he served was called on to serve a tour of nine months and joined the army commanded by General Maxwell (??) Elizabeth Town. General Washington reviewed the troops and was saluted by them. He served on this tour three months in actual service as well as he recollected and received from his captain a written discharge which was lost among other papers in a pocket book which he lost. During this tour he was engaged in a skirmish with the British on Staten Island and received a slight wound by a rifle ball across his shin bone. He was afterwards, he thought perhaps the same year, drafted into Captain McCambly's Company in a regiment commanded by Colonel Hawthorne, Josiah Woods being lieutenant of the company. He marked to Fishkill Plains in the State of New York where he was stationed. During this time General Burgoyne and his army were taken. In this expedition he served two months but was discharged without receiving a written discharge. He still continued to reside in Sussex County, New Jersey.

 

Some time after that he believed in the year 1779, he volunteered under Colonel Soward in New York and marched upwards of 150 miles to bhe headwaters of Delaware River against the Indians who were commanded by Brent and Butler. There was an engagement which took place on the Mongroupe (??) River in which the whites were repulsed. On this tour he was in actual service one month and received no written discharge.

 

Afterwards, he believed in the 1780, he was drafted into the company of Captain John Kinsdale, William Hopkins being the lieutenant in the State of New York, near the line of New Jersey, and guarded British prisoners taken at Stoney Point to Philadelphia. He was in service three weeks on this tour for which he received no written discharge. Afterwards (he believes during the same year) he was drafted under Captain James Soward, William Hopkins, Lieutenant, in New Jersey and marched to New Bridge in said state where he was stationed. On this tour he served six weeks. He has no recollections of having received a written discharge. He further declared that he had no documentary evidence of his services and that he knew of no one who can testify to them. He employed an agent some years since to attend to an application for a pension and did not know until recently that the application had not been made.

 

John Cock, clergyman residing in Carroll County, Virginia and Joel Ashworth residing in the same county certified that they werer acquainted with James Gardner and they believed him to be 88 years of age; that he was respected and believed in the neighborhood where he resided to have been a soldier of the Revolution, and that we concur that position.

 

He was born in the year 1756 in the State of New York, Fishkill County, and his age was recorded in my bible now in my house. He was living in Sussex County, New Jersey, when called into service. He moved to Shenandoah County, Virginia, thence to the county of Franklin in the same state, thence to the county of Montgomery in the same state, and thence to the county of Grayson, now Carroll where he resided, and has resided for the term of twenty-five years.

 

He first entered the service as a substitute for Aaron Tuckimer; he volunteered once and was drafted for the other tour he served. He recollected General Washington, General Maxwell, Colonel Soward, Colonel Hethorn, Captains (??), Soward and McCambly, and lieutenants Williams, Hopkins, and Josiah Woods. He could not recollect the numbers of the regiment. He received one written discharge signed by Captain Ireson (??), which he lost among other papers with his pocketbook.

 

August 12, 1850, Isaac A. Gardner of Glades Burrough, Carroll County, Virginia wrote to the Secretary of the Interior requesting information about a warrant.

 

Another letter from James Gardner, Jr., Hillsville, Virginia shows that James Gardner was deceased on ___ day of ___ 1849. He was the son of James Gardner, deceased, and of the same name. His mother was living, and was the widow of James Gardner, deceased. Her name was Tabitha Gardner, and they had eleven children now living, viz: William, John, Mary, Jane, Nancy, James, Mathew, Elizabeth, Sarah, Alexander and Washington. The widow Tabitha Gardner was administratix and John Quesenberry was adminstrator of the estate of the said James Gardner, deceased.

 

The claim was not allowed as proof of six months service was not furnished as required by pension law."

Also probably in this group were Nathan Martin and wife Elizabeth, Nathan's son, James and wife, Isaac's brother James and his wife as well as some of the Owens who had married daughters of Nathan. These people settled in Barren Co., KY near Prewitt's Knob in what is now Cave City.

 

According to Barren Co., KY pension records, Isaac Martin received 40 acres of land when he made application under the act of 28 Sept. 1850 which granted land to soldiers who had been engaged in military service. In this application, Elizabeth P. Martin was a witness -- "Elizabeth P Martin who being duly sworn according to law states that she is and has been acquainted with Isaac Martin who has made the foregoing declaration before and since the War of 1812;' that he is a brother of her deceased husband James Martin. That she well recollects the said Isaac Martin left Halifax Co., VA with her said husband about the 1st of Aug. 1814 as a soldier in the war with Great Britain."

 

Isaac received a gift of land from his cousin James Martin, a brother of his wife Patsy.

Notes for Sarah Arnold:

General Notes:

Marriage license for Giles and Nancy obtained 8 Jan 1794. Sarah Arnold Martin filed a widow's pension for her husband's service in the War of 1812. It states that Giles was drafted at Patrick County in February 1815 and served three months and 17 days. He was honorably discharged at Richmond on 19 Feb 1815. Apparently Giles was granted 40 acres of land 10 Feb 1854 which was disposed of before Sarah made application for pension.

 

The pension board questioned why Sarah had signed her mark and then on a subsequent document had signed her name. Her reply - "She signed the declaration for bounty land warrant when her mother - one brother and two of her children had typhoid fever & no hope was entertained of the recovery of her mother or children. All were in the same house and she supposed she made her mark because she was in such a state of distress and nervous excitement she did not feel like she could write her name - and therefore made her mark. The signature to the declaration for pension is in her own handwriting." 7 Jun 1879 An examiner record dated 13 Aug 1888 states that Sarah Martin who is seventy-one year old resides at Mayo Forge, Va. with her son Sonny Martin. 2 July 1879 living with Jno. A. Martin. 2 Jul 1879 "I remember well that when my mother and brother had fever the neighbors were afraid of contracting the disease, and would not go into the house. I took my three children to my fathers (sic) to wait on the sick, and while I was there my children took the disease and were very ill for a long time." - Sarah Martin - all from pension records at the National Archives.

 

 

John Giles Martin and Sarah Arnold were married on 22 Oct 1844 in Patrick, Virginia, USA[5]. They had no children.

Notes for Wright Moorefield:

General Notes:

 

In the Moorefield-Gibson Cemetery where Wright Moorefield is buried are possibly fifty other graves marked with rock, no inscriptions. This cemetery is maintained by Timmy Gibson. He states others known to be buried here are Pleas Gibson, Robert Gibson and William Moorefield. According to his research the Gibsons were originally from Rockingham Co., NC>

I got to feeling antsy this afternoon and decided to go riding. I had read about the burial site for Wright Morefield, son of William, Sr. and Rebecca, who moved from Halifax Co. to Patrick Co. in the 1820's. So I went to see it. From a post by Jo Martin on Worlconnect/Rootsweb, I got directions to the Moorefield-Gibson family cemetary in the Quaker Gap Township of Stokes Co., N.C. It took a visit to a neighbor nearby to find it, but I did. The cemetary is about 15 miles west of Danbury, almost to Surry Co., and is on rd. 1210, about 200 yards west of Jackson Rd. It is in a cow pasture, enclosed in a fence. The property is maintained by Timmy Gibson who lives about 1/4 mile away, (I also went by his parents house, his father's grandmother was Nancy Morefield who married Pleasant Gibson, Timmy was not at his home), and is very well neat and orderly. Both the pasture and cemetary are surrounded by electric fences, so care is necessary to enter. Here is what I found:

 

First, the cemetary does indeed contain the grave of Wright Morefield. The stone is about 1 1/2 feet tall, about 2" thick, and I could not read all the letters on it. It does give his birth as Oct. 20, 1812. His death date appears to me to be Apr. 11, but I could not read the year. This was partly due to the fact that it was misty/sprinkly, and I just could not read the wet rock. Also, I had on white pants and did not lay/kneel down to get a better look. There are several words after his death date, but I could not make them out. I'll go back on a clear day better prepared. On the back of the stone is a curious design. It is an outline of the back of a right hand; the thumb is to the left, extended at a 45 degree angle, the

index finger is extended out as if pointing, and the other three fingers are bent in at the knuckle. Does anyone know the significance. Second, was a stone for William Moorefield, (oo). This stone is white, about 2 feet tall, and much newer looking, like one presented by the UDC. It says;

PVT WILLIAM MOOREFIELD, CO A N.C. INF 2 BATT

CSA

1822 - 1899

 

This is certainly Wright's brother William, Jr. who was married to Mary Winston Kasey in Patrick Co.

 

Nearby are the graves of William, Jr. and Mary's son James William Moorefield and his two wives. From left to right they read: Mary Gibson Moorefield , Nancy Gibson Moorefield, James William Moorefield

1867 1893 1870 1904 1861 1934

 

William F. "Bill" Moorefield, III wrote on sep 15, 2002 " I said I would return to make another attempt at reading the lettering on markers at the graves where Wright and younger brother, William Moorefield were buried. This time I was more prepared, taking a couple of towels and a large brush I use to clean wheels and tires. After chatting with the son of the current owner, I crossed the cow pasture, carefully watching my step, and entered the cemetary. Following is the wording on Wright's headstone, hopefully it will appear in this note section as it is written:

 

WRIGHT MOREFIELD,

BORN OCT THE 20 AD 1812

DIED APRIL THE 26 AD 1882

AGE 69 YEARS, 6 MONTH, 6 Days
