Todd County Past

Welcome to Sharon Grove, Todd County, Ky

"In 1800, John DRISKILL came to the Sharon Grove District from Rutherford County, North Carolina and began living near the Coal Bank. He lived there for several years and moved to a farm late owned by John DRISKILL, Jr. A Col. HARDIN already had located near Clifty Creek on a portion of the farm later owned by John DRISKILL, Jr., who died in 1843. HARDIN remained on his first location for a time and then he moved to a farm within one-half mile of the former site, for which he obtained a Patent of 200 acres.

On the creek immediately below HARDIN's property, Jacob SELLERS lived on a farm which was inherited by James HALL, a grandson. SELLERS was a native of North Carolina.

James HALL served his country in the War of 1812. The approximate date of his death was 1855. A Mr. RAGER, at one time, lived on the farm which was occupied later by Squire SHEMWELL. A grandson, Burkett RAGER, lived in Kirkmansville District in 1884.

Robert SHERROD was an early settler in the Mt. Sharon neighborhood. He was a native of Edgecomb, North Carolina, having been born there in 1762, and also was a faith healer. His death occurred Sept. 9, 1836. His grave is in the family burial ground near Mt. Sharon. A Baptist preacher, John CHRISTIAN, came to the District from North Carolina in 1903.

The date of the coming of Samuel SHEMWELL is not known. He lived in Virginia before he established himself upon a farm late in possession of William C. SHEMWELL. James SHEMWELL, brother to Samuel, lived on a farm that his grandson, Mark, owned. James served as Magistrate for a number of years and also as a captain in the Militia.

On the lands which were owned by Britton SHERROD and Samuel SHEMWELL, there were caves which were explored only partially. It is said that a cave on the Widow GILBERT's land was found to have contained counterfeiting tools and a furnace. Their ownership and the purposes for which they were intended remain a mystery. Possibly the tools and the furnace were used by the PENNINGTON Gang, who were known to be printing and distributing counterfeit money. The residence of Alonzo PENNINGTON was on a site known as the Johnny FLEMING farm. Its horses and slaves which they sold to the owners of plantations in the south. PENNINGTON used his home as a stopping and resting place.

PENNINGTON's intersts were diversified. He owned fine horses and he was educated. He maintained a race track on his farm and racing contests were held there often. Unfortunately he killed a Mr. DAVIS, who was a resident of the Fruit Hill District in Christian County. The murderer fled to Texas, where he was found and returned to Kentucky. He was hanged in Hopkinsville and buried on his farm. Since he was a good fiddler, legend says he was allowed to play the fiddle on the day of his execution. A song, the title of which is "Pennington's Farewell" commemorates the event.

Charles CHRISTIAN discovered a coal bank on his acreage from which he mined coal for himself and his neighbors. Coal was hauled to Elkton and sold to residents there. Melrose JOHNSON and Ray FISH are said to be the recent owners of the CHRISTIAN tract. During 1870-5, William BROCKMAN ran a mill and used coal from the mine. Clifty Creek or the grounds near it contained lead deposits. James SHERROD used it for making his own bullets.

James GORRELL (1778-1845) and his wife, Nancy (1775-1851), who came to the Sharon grove section in 1810, established their home about one mile from the present site of the Community on the Lewisburg Road. He erected a small cabin near a good spring and became a farmer. He and his wife were buried near their home.

Dr. Robert DORRIS and his wife, Jane RIPPY DORRIS, of Sumner County, Tennessee purchased a farm and began living in the settlement in 1852. Of their 18 children, 3 had been married before they left Virginia. Dr. DORRIS was a veteran of the War of 1812, in the tradition of his father who fought in the American Revolution. The DORRIS lands eventually were sold to Mr. Marshall MEADOR. In addition to operating his farm, he ran a mill on Clifty Creek.

Dr. William SARVER was also one of the earliest doctors. Among his descendants living now are Joe Edward SNEAD, Curtis SNEAD and Mrs. Loren (Mae) MALLORY.

At approximately the same time, James GLENN came to Northern Todd County. He was a Magistrate and he also operated a horse-powered mill for a number of years. He died in 1826. His son, Robert, became prominent in early history. He was a Magistrate also, and then he was elected to the lower house of the Legislature for three terms, after which, his construents sent him to the Senate. After the War Between the States began, he sickened and died in office. At one time, he was Sheriff, although his son, George F. GLENN, often acted in his stead.

Another North Carolinian came to Todd County, Robert ACOCK. He was a veteran of the American Revolution and he died here in 1847. Robert ACOCK, Jr., also became Sheriff. He left the county for Missouri and died there.

William SEARS moved from another section of Logan County and settled near others at the head waters of Clifty Creek. At his early death, his son, Fritz, inherited and lived on the place for many years.

As early as 1825, John LYON, a Virginian, began a farm which was owned late by William LYON, a grandson. The latter operated a store in Sharon Grove.Contemporary with the arrival of the LYONs was that of Jesse ROBINSON, who began his life in Todd County on a farm which at a later time was in the possession of William GANT. He opened a store on his land and maintained it for a number of years. In addition to his other interests, GANT was a tobacco buyer.

Russell WHITESIDES of Tennessee moved into this part of the county in 1838 and remained.

Alfred, Joseph and John GANT established themselves in the Todd County area in 1840 from Marshall County, Tennessee. John lived in Elkton and was a minister for the Christian Church. Alfred lived on a farm not far from Alfred and reared a family of eight children. After Joseph's death, his son, William, occupied the farm.

Elias TOMERLIN was an early settler in the Northern section. Following a brief stay in Elkton, he located on a farm north of Mt. Sharon, where he had a woodworking shop. Some of his handcrafted furniture can be found in the area today. ~ abstracted from- The History of Todd County by J.H. Battle 1884

Sharon Grove was an incorporated village during the latter part of the 19th century. A small frame jail was built on the lot which adjoined the Baptist Church. The jail was moved eventually, but it remains a shed on property which is owned by Joe Ray BROWN. "Pat" HARRIS was the first constable and jailor.

The Sharon Grove Post Office has been in use since the nineteenth century. Before the post office was opened, mail was brought from Elkton twice each week, the delivery having been financed by local persons. On Oct. 16, 1924, the first rural mail service from the local facility began. Mr. Ray HALL, now retired, was the first rural carrier. After HALL's retirement, Mr. Frank POWER replace him. Mr. POWER was replaced by Louis SEARS, who is the incumbent. Early postmasters included Rev. M.V. LYON and Mr. Will WELBORN. Mrs. Matilda HARRIS, Mrs. Anise GANT WARDEN, the present postmistress, have served in the same capacity. The Post Office, at one time, was located on three corners of the Sharon Grove Crossroads. In April 1966 four buildings on the Southwest corner of Sharon Grove's "Square" burned and the post office was destroyed.

In the late 1800's and the early 1900's Mr. T.W. GALBRAITH owned and operated a drug store with different partners at different time. An early store, operated by T.M. TOMERLIN an W.H. LYON, remained in business until 1930, under the name "R.T. KIRKMAN No. 2".

"A school was built at Sharon Grove in about 1860, and a new building was put up in 1876. The Antioch Baptist Church was organized in about 1820. The Mt. Sharon Methodist Church was built in about 1830. William Lyons and Marion Tomoilin have general stores, and F. Galbraith a drug store.-F. S. Tyler." "The days of yore in this district were very like the same days elsewhere time of home-made clothing and limited educational facilities, such as the present generation know but little about. Six yards was considered an extravagant amount to put into one dress, which was made plain...The clothing of the women was hung upon wooden pegs around the walls of the house. They had none of the ruffles, silk hats, curls and jewels that adorn the young lady of this period. Reared in simplicity, surrounded by poverty, cared for by brave parents, their lives were one long dream of sunshine, unbroken by a single storm cloud poured out as a shameful libation to dim the horizon of their happiness. Corn bread and wild game were the principal articles of food. Wheat bread was a luxury which few possessed."

  Notes for Mary Blanchett:
[myersfamily3.GEDjuly05.GED]

WILLIAM BLANCHETT ?

Bute / Warren County records mention many associations between the Blanche tt and Acock families, including military, property, etc. Sometimes the n ames are listed close together. It would be likely for Mary Blanche tt to be connected to these other Blanchetts based on naming patterns a nd proximity in time and place.

Thomas Blanchett, Sr, Thomas Blanchett, Jr, William Blanchett, Henry Blanc hett and Peter Blanchett
are names associated with this area at this time.

If the middle initial of Mary's son William B. Acock, is for Blanchett, po ssibly she is the daughter of William Blanchett. She also has a son Joh n, which would then be her paternal grandfather's given name as we ll as a grand uncle's given name.

This analysis is speculative based on information listed above and belo w. ---RCM

I am researching the English BLACKARD family and our surname was usually m isspelled as was yours making our research difficult. The early Blackar ds appeared in Rowan, Caswell and Bute Counties in NC around 1755-1780. O ur branch later settled in Patrick County, VA after passing through Stok es Co. NC where the Blancet is also seen. I am trying to determine if cer tain individuals spelled BLANCET/BLANCETT are actually BLACKARDS. Specific ally, a Thomas that is listed on the 1768 Rowan county, NC tax list and th en appears to have moved to Bute Co. NC where he took his oath of allegian ce 1774-1779 along with a Hudson Blancet and is recorded the the Warren/Bu te Co. Deed books in the 1770s. My Blackard ancestors appear in the sa me time in the same places, even Patrick Co, VA. Has anyones research ti ed Thomas Blancet/Blancett of Rowan/Bute Co NC and Joel Blancit/Blanc et of Patrick Co., VA and Stokes/Surry Co., NC into your family tree?

My research has found that the spelling of the name has no relationsh ip to the kinship until the 20th century when people usually were more lik ely to know how to spell their own name. I've found related Blancet membe rs public records found these ways: Blancet, Blanscet, Blanset, Blancot, B lanscet, and even Blonset. And the ending can be either one or two "t"s. I 've also found it Blancette.

The origin of the name Blanchett starts with John Blanchett of Prince Geor ge County, then in Amelia County, Virginia. John Blanchett or Blanchet cou ld neither read nor write. His will was written on June 23, 1757 in Amel ia County, Virginia and surname was written as "Blanshard." The will was s igned with his
"x" mark for John Blanshard. If you have a copy of the original will, y ou will see written on the left corner "JOHN BLANCHET WILL." In 1758 h is widow "ELIZABETH BLANCHETT" PURCHASED 3 COWS & CALVES & HEIFERS," at T HE ESTATE OF JOHN BLANCHET, DECED. Widow "Elizibeth Blanchets" signed
her mark which was an "E". The children named in John Blanchet's will wer e: Isaac, John, Isabella Belcher, Thomas, Robert, William, Elizabeth Broo ks, Edward, and Peter.

Some researchers believe John Blanchet's wife was Elizabeth Stanley.

My lineage in the Blanchet family is through Peter Blanchett, Sr. left Vir ginia and lived for a while in North Carolina, but before leaving Amelia C ounty he married and had a son that was named Joel Blanchet. Joel was bo rn April 7, 1761 in Amelia County, Virginia according to his Revolutiona ry War Pension records. He and his father moved to Henry Co., Virgin ia by 1777 when Peter Blanchette's name appears on the list of those th at signed signed the oath of allegience to the Commonwealth of Virginia. P eter Blanchett, Sr. lived in that part of Henry Co. that later became Patr ick Co., Virginia. Peter Blanchet, Sr. wife's name is unknown, but he h ad sons Peter, Jr., Archibald, Joel, and Henry. My family lineage is proba bly through Peter Blanchet, Jr. and his wife Lucy. Her maiden name is n ot known, nor the date and place of their marriage. Peter and Lucy had a s on William M. (Madison?) Blanchet in 1794 in Patrick County, Virgini a. It is probable that Peter and Lucy's first child was James born 1790, P eter, III born 1792, and my William M. Blanchet born 1794. This date is fr om his War of 1812 Pension file. His parents Peter and Lucy Blanchet are l isted on his Patrick County, Virginia marriage license when he married f or the third time to Mary Fulcher on May 27, 1878 at the age of 84 year s. His mother Lucy Blanchet is listed on the 1820 Census residing next do or to Joel Blanchet. William M. Blanchet remained in Patrick County, Virgi nia where he and his wife Susannah Beasley raised a family. There are thr ee generations of Blanchets with the middle initial "M". William M., Jam es M. (called Mat), and David Madison son of James William Blancett. The o ther Blanchet families moved to Ky., Tenn., Alabama, Missouri and ? Pet er Jr. remarried and ended up in Jackson County, Alabama. Peter Blanchet I II ended up in Schuyler Co., Missouri. So the name was originally Blanch et with one line Blanshard, to Blanchit, Blancett, and Blansett.

The Journey to Manakin Town, Virginia, in 1700
http://huguenot-manakin.org/huguenothist.htm

Account of the emigration, copied with permission from In River Time: T he Way of the James, by Ann Matthews Woodlief (Chapel Hill: Algonquin Book s, 1985), pp. 82-84. Major sources of information: Richard P. Maury's "T he Huguenots in Virginia" and "The French Huguenot Frontier Settleme nt of Manakin Town," James L. Bugg, Jr. in The Virginia Magazine of Histo ry and Biography, V. 61, Oct. 1953, 359-94. More recently published is T he Diligence and the Disappearance of Manakintowne's Huguenots by Allis on Wehr Elterich (Spartenburg, SC: Reprint Company, 1999).

"In 1700 the frontier was still just upstream a ways, in the more hosti le world of granite, islands, and rapids above the tidewater. In July a sh ip [the Mary Ann] sailed into Hampton filled with 207 Huguenots, exiled f or years from their cozy, prosperous villages in France, who hoped to bui ld a French Protestant town in the Norfolk area. They were welcomed by Gov ernor Nicholson with disturbing news; their destination had been changed a nd they were to go up the James. William Byrd I, inheritor of land in t he Falls area and influential in the colony, had had the last word on the ir fate. They were to settle in the wilderness above the Fall Line, securi ng that land for the white man.

The omens were all foreboding at Jamestown where the prospective settle rs had to transfer to smaller boats that could negotiate the curls. The to wn had recently burned for the third time and so had been abandoned as a c apital. Sickness was still prevalent, and many of the French proved as vul nerable as the earlier settlers. As they learned more details about the re quirements of survival on the frontier, especially without a navigable wat erway, they became even more apprehensive, for their skills were tho se of business, not farming. Not surprisingly, many chose to desert her e. Only 120 trusted themselves to the small boats and the currents of t he James. Almost immediately a boat that was filled with goods sank, claim ed by the rough waters.

This last leg of the voyage, overcast by dread and illness, must have be en the worst. They passed the site of an earlier settlement called World 's End, made the left turn into the Fall zone, and landed at the tiny trad ing outpost of rude houses around Shockoe Creek. Loading what was le ft of their supplies onto borrowed wagons, they trudged through the thi ck forests, following a faint path more than twenty miles into land long a go cleared by the Monacan Indians on the south bank of the river. Their ea rs still rang with the rushing of water over granite that would block the ir boats from the outside world of commerce. But the key to their surviv al lay in the unusually fertile floodplain of that same river.

It was a desperate fall and winter as the ill-prepared settlers used up th eir meager supplies, especially when another group of more than a hundr ed Huguenots arrived in October expecting to find a thriving town. [Thr ee other ships arrived on the James and the Rappahannock Rivers: the Pet er and Anthony, the Nassau, and one whose name is not known. All told, 5 00 prospective settlers boarded, but far fewer settled at Manakin Town.] ] Friction developed between the leaders, meaning that the new group h ad to hack out a settlement several miles downstream. Soon, though, Byrd a nd Governor Nicholson proved their support by soliciting charitable donati ons throughout the colony. The ensuing generosity proved justified, for wi thin a year the French had learned to be adept farmers, growing fruit a nd fat cattle on their bottom land, and establishing trade, not warfare, w ith neighboring Indians.

Although plans had been drawn for a French-style village around a centr al square, with outlying farmland along the river, these never proved prac tical. The fertility of the piedmont floodplain encouraged the Huguenot s, like the Monacans before them, to live more separately than they had in tended, becoming a segmented agrarian society which stretched back from fi ve miles of river bank. In time, they too lost their cohesive identi ty by intermarrying and moving to other rivers."

French family of harpsichord and piano makers. They were active from the e nd of the 17th century to the mid-19th. Their shop was successful from t he beginning - François Couperin's large harpsichord was a Blanchet - b ut reached its peak in the mid-18th century, when it became 'facteur des c lavessins du Roi'. Third-generation members in particular, including Franç ois Etienne (ii) (c. 1730-66) and his co-worker and successor Pascal Taski n, were renowned for craftsmanship and skilled reworking of 17th-century F lemish instruments. The firm built its first upright piano in 1827: its hi gh-quality small uprights were widely imitated.

If Mary is the daughter of Thomas Blanchett who was in the militia with Fr ancis Acock, then she would have married Francis' son Robert. The nam es of Thomas Blanchett and Francis Acock show up together on many Warren/B ute County records, sometimes listed next to each other or otherwise ve ry closely together. That their children would marry is not unlikely. -- -RCM
