Ancestors of Roscoe Clinton Myers


      40. Francis~ Acock, born 1728 in probably North Carolina or Virginia; died 1766 in Bute (later Warren) County, NC307. He married 41. Mary^ Marshall in probably North Carolina.

      41. Mary^ Marshall, born 1730 in North Carolina; died Aft. 1773 in probably Bute (later Warren) County, NC. She was the daughter of 82. John^ Marshall.

Notes for Francis~ Acock:
Could he be named after Francis Poythress?
[]

If he were the son of Richard Aycock, Sr, Francis would not have been mentioned in Richard's will because he predeceased Richard. ---RCM
[]

WAS FRANCIS ACOCK OF NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE?

He is listed on the 8 Oct 1754 muster roll of the Granville County, NC, militia commanded by Col William Eaton. He is also listed among the Saponi and Tutelo Native Americans who served on that militia, some of whom moved from Brunswick County, VA, to settle on land owned by Col William Eaton, who was an Indian trader.

Francis named his son Robert Eaton Acock. This could be to honor his military commander. ---RCM

FRANCIS ACOCK AND THE AYCOCKS

Based only on circumstantial evidence, Francis Acock seems to be connected to the family of Richard Aycock, Sr. It seems that there was some relationship between the two based on Bute-Granville-Warren County, NC, military, tax and census records. And, this Richard, Sr, may have been the brother of William Aycock. Please refer to the notes for all of these individuals.

Abner Aycock was the bondsman for the marriage of Robert Acock, son of Francis. Since Francis had died earlier, it seems reasonable that Francis' brother [perhaps oldest brother] would stand in for him in this regard. ---RCM

Col. William Eaton's Militia Regiment
Granville Co., NC
- roll taken 8 Oct 1754 -

NOTE: This muster roll [found in Vol. 22 of the North Carolina State Records] is generally considered to be the first true accounting of all able-bodied men in Granville County. Those men in this regiment are believed to range in ages from young (teens) to much older (perhaps even some grandfathers!). Relationships were not noted, but no doubt both fathers and sons are among them. You will note the great number of "juniors" on the muster roll. Care should be taken not to "assume" relationships, as most likely there are cousins, fathers, sons, brothers, and possibly grandsons listed.

There is a story that I have heard many times from many different peple about William Acock, b. 1705, being the father of Jesse Acock and how William met his death. The story is always the same and has been handed down for generations.

THE STORY OF WILLIAM AYCOCK

William, Richard and Jesse Acock were brothers and all in their teens when they sailed from England for America. They were to be indentured for 5 years to a Virginia land owner who paid their fare over.
During the trip, the youngest brother Jesse died. William and Richard vowed that who ever had the first male child would name him Jesse.

William did have a son that he named Jesse. Sometime while Jesse was still a child, William moved his family from one location to another. During the move they had to cross a river. William either procured or built a raft onto which he loaded his horse, a cart, possessions and his family. At sometime during the crossing the horse became spooked. William, in an attempt to quiet the horse placed his coat over the horse's head covering its eyes. In order to have better control over the horse, William wound the reins tightly around his arm. The horse either fell or jumped into the water and both the horse and William drown.

CAN YOU VALIDATE, DISPUTE OR ADD TO THIS STORY?

Other information and conjectures that I have heard, received, read or believe may be true.

1. William was first married to ? Pope. He had three sons, Thomas, John and Charles. All would have probably been born between 1720 and 1735. Thom as died about 1800 in Wayne County, NC (formerly Dobbs County). Charles died abt. 1791 in Darlington, SC.

2. Jesse was the born 1n 1743. The 4th child of William's marriage to Rebecca Pace Bradford. Rebecca was from Virginia and was previously married to William Bradford. William Acock and Rebecca were married in Johnston County, NC. William and Rebecca's other children were James, b. 1737, Richard, b. 1739 and Winifred, b. 1741. Winifred said she was born close to Raleigh. That probably would have been Johnston County at that time. William Acock died in 1765 in Orange County, NC. Orange county was created in 1753 from mostly Granville County but parts of Bladen County (Cumberland) and Johnston Counties were usurped also.

(Acock, William, page 356 of Orange County, NC, Court Minutes, May Court 1765, administration on Estate of WILLIAM ACOCK, deceased, granted to JAMES ACOCK, bond set at 300 pounds.)

3. A Richard Acock from Granville County was accumulating land at the same time William was in Johnston. The proximity of Johnston and Granville would have been close at that time before other counties were carved from them. Could this Richard have been the brother of William?

4. The only information I have on Richard Acock is a date of 1717 and that he came from Virginia. Married a Mary ?. Had a son John about 1744.

5. A Richard was on the 1771 tax list in Bute County, NC. (Now Warren and Franklin Counties). This Richard died in Bute Co. in 1789. Was it the same Richard? Also, a William Acock and a Mary Acock are listed on the Bute County 1771 tax roll.

I know there are holes in this story such as the brothers vowing to name their first child Jesse and William's Jesse was his 7th child. Also, William would have been 60 years old when he died in Orange County so Jesse wou ld not have been a small child if he drowned crossing the river.

Can you tell me more about this story? Comments appreciated. Please post to this homepage or click on my name on this page for my e-mail address. Thanks for your interest. Charles Aycock

The Family Search Ancestral file shows a daughter Rebecca born 1743 to William Aycock and Rebecca Pace Bradford. It also shows that Williams father was born in Virginia. Doesn't mean your story is wrong, but I guess I'd believe one of the references is wrong.

Hi Charles, I have 2 tidbits to add:

1. John Boddie has Rebeca Pace married to John Bradford, per John's Will dated Nov. 30, 1732, probated 1738. Brunswick Co. Va.

2. There are 4 references to land deeds to various individuals that say that they are adjacent to Richard Aycock in Pince George Co. Va. on the Blackwater and Three Creeks Area ranging from 1739 to 1745

NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY POSSIBLY PERTAINED TO FRANCIS ACOCK

http://members.tripod.com/~vcassociates/saponi.htm

OCCANEECHI/SAPONI

The Occaneechi and Saponi Indians were a tribe of Native Americans that once reigned in the Southeast. Today, many descendants of these fine people are still here. After spending some time around these folks, I learned a great deal about the history of the Saponi. This led me into a study of one of my own family lines, the Hathcock Family. I have a basic family tree below to illustrate my relations to the line for your referenc e. It is a known fact that the family name of Haithcock/Hathcock shows up as one of the founding families of the Little Texas community which is the current home of the Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation. See the links below for further, particularly the History of the Occaneechi Band.
The Hathcock involvement with the tribe has created a division amoung researchers concerning this idea. Many have heard of indian blood in their families and many have not. Therefore, it creates a problem as to whether or not you can prove their Indianess. As stated on my book page, when dealing with tribes which were not considered part of the Five Civilized tribes by the Dawes Commission, few, if any official tribal records exist. This creates another problem. To those seeking proof on paper that one belonged to or descended from one of these tribes, the evidence may never show up. However, there are court cases as far away as Michigan that show Hathcocks as being Indian. It appears that my line of Hathcocks and these came from a common source, but many still argue with that.

There is a good bit of circumstantial evidence that there is truth to the family traditions. My book goes over these and gives the reader an opportunity to make their own decision. When you couiple these attributes with family stories, you being to put a picture of the past together without documentation that would be found for any of the other tribes. However, in the site of the general population, this is never good enough. My advice? If you make your own decision and do your own research, then. after compiling all of these things together...make up your own mind and be proud of who you are. Just remember, realistically, not all things are documented and not all mixed bloods lived as Indian or claimed any such heritage. A study of the discrimination back then will give you a good reason why.

On with the Saponi information.................. Originally, the Saponi came from what is known as the Ohio river valley anc crossed the Appalacians and settled in the Piedmont regions of North Carolina and Virginia. They called themselves Yesah, which means "The People".

They occupied territory near Clarksville, VA. and controlled much of the trade on the Great Trading Path to other tribes. They were very intimidating and quite adept at warfare. It was said that a small band of Occaneechi-Saponi could hold off a much larger group with amazing success.

In the late 1600's, the tribe was scattered as a result of Bacon's Rebellion. This forced the tribe to move to what is now known as Hillsborough, North Carolina. After this move, there were still other tribal movements and of course, loss of land due to the government giving their original reservation land out to colonists. It is amazing how that has happened so many times!!

In 1984, the tribe was reorganized. Today, it is known as the Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation in Mebane, NC. The tribe is presently working on many projects to preserve the proud history of our ancestors... --- by Brian Voncannon

THE SAPONI
http://virginiahistory.hypermart.net/American_Indians/Saponi.htm

Location, Earliest known settlement is on the banks of the Rivanna in Albemarle County, just north of the University of Virginia.

Villages, Saponi, Located somewhere near Lynchburg.

History, The Saponi tribe also known as the Monasukapanough tribe. Between 1650 and 1660 they moved southwest to the Otter Creek area. In 1670 they were visited by Lederer and in 1671 by Thomas Batts. After this they moved with the Tutelo to the junction of the Staunton and Dan Rivers, where each occupied an island on the Roanoke River in Mecklenburg County. In 1701 they again moved south to present day Salisbury, North Carolina, both moves were to prevent attacks from the Iroquis. They again moved, this time toward the white settlements establishing themselves 15 miles west of Windsor North Carolina. A little while later Governor Spottswood placed them and the Tutelo and other tribes near Gholsonville in Brunswick County. Most of the Indians moved north into Pennsylvania after the Iroquis signed the Albany Treaty. One band as late as 1756 remained in North Carolina, it comprised only 14 men and 14 woman, it was later adopted by the Iroquis. Those that had left for Pennsylvania remained there until 1778, locating themselves on the upper waters of the Susquehanna River. Most of the tribe then moved north to Ithaca New York, before moving on to Canada.

THE TUTELO
http://www.dep.state.pa.us/dep/monthlyprograms/american_indian/tutelo.html

The Tutelo was a Siouan tribe that were originally from Virginia and North Carolina. The Sioux were known for being outstanding warriors. Their culture was characterized by mobility on horseback, a buffalo economy, vision quests, solider societies, and the Sun Dance. The Sun dance was considered one of the most religious ceremonies of the Sioux and reinforced tribal unity. Their religion stresses an omnipotent supernatural power and the sacredness of the peace pipe.

The Tutelo was a tribe that suffered constant attacks by the Iroquois from 1671 until 1722, which forced them to move to the Roanoke River. Peace was established between the two groups in 1722, and by 1740 the Tutelo had moved to Pennsylvania under Iroquois protection. They settled in the area of Shamokin. Within the overpopulated Susquehanna River Valley, intertribal marriages began to become common and gradually the Tutelo tribe died out. The last surviving full-blooded Tutelo was Nikonha, who died in 1871.

The Tutelo were closely related to the Saponi people. Both were Siouan tribes and moved together to Shamokin. The Saponi, however, continued to move north until they reached Sunbury. In 1753, they were formally adopted by the Cayuga and became members of The Six Nations. By 1763, only 30 Saponis were alive and scattered throughout northern Pennsylvania and New York. After 1780, the Saponi disappeared from history.

The wife of Thomas Blanchett was possibly a daughter of Isaac Hudson. Isaac Hudson owned land adjacent to John Blanchett, father of Thomas. Thomas named his son Hudson. If she was a Hudson, she is surely connected to this family.

In addition, a grandson of Isaac Hudson married a sister of Francis Acock. ---RCM

Like his brother Thomas Rives, Joseph Rives was illiterate. Both he and his wife, Sarah, made their marks to the two deeds recorded in 1731 in Isle of Wight county: conveying, in the one deed executed on April 9, 1731. 190 acres "in the Parish of Warwicke Creek and county of Isle of Wight taken up by Joseph Rives and adjoining his other land" to Richard Sykes, of Bristol Parish, Isle of Wight county, and in the other deed executed on May 15, 1731, 100 acres in the same county "on the southside of the Great Meadow John Peterson his land" to George Cater, of Isle of Wight county. In both of these deeds the grantor, Joseph Rives, is described as "of Bristol Parish in the County of Prince George." Some years later he appears in the patent books of the Virginia Land Office as the patentee on March 6, 1739, for twenty shillings of 194 acres on the southside of the second swamp of Blackwater in Prince George county adjoining RICHARD ACOCK'S land.

Speculation on Marshall Ancestors
?Virginia, ?Nova Scotia, or ?Scotland
http://www.next1000.com/family/GRUBB/marshall.early.html
We are most interested in making connections to earlier Marshall familie s. Sue Keller has spent many hours searching records and tracking backwar ds to find the parents of John Marshall but has run into a dead end. We a re hoping someone out there has information on these families that will pr ovide the missing link. Elroy Christenson has a connection to the earli er Virginia relatives that we believe are our mutual ancestors. (See Elroy 's Thomas Marshall) One of the other Marshall researchers, John G. Marsha ll of Salt Lake City responded to the query that Sue wrote in 1992. We inc lude the following letter that may be of interest to other Marshall resear chers.

January 8, 1992
Sue Keller
3502 South Mason, 4E
Tacoma, WA 98409
Dear Sue, This will acknowledge you letter of January 2, 1992. I have sear ched through all of the information I have on Marshall genealogy, and, alt hough I found three individuals with the name "Thomas Marshall," none of t hem show as being married to Sarah Gower, or having children named Thom as Homer Marshall (whose name I could not find anywhere) or John G. Marsha ll (I am the only "John G. Marshall" in the information I have).

The Marshall line I have information on is descended from Robert Marsha ll who immigrated from Dumfries, Scotland to what is now Prince Edward Isl and, Canada in 1776, and then moved to Nova Scotia, Canada in about 177 7. We have fairly complete information on all of his descendants unt il we get into the 1900's, so I do not think that the individuals you a re researching are connected into this line.

Just for your information, I might pass on to you that about forty years a go the president of the Utah Scottish organization told me that when I d id my Marshall genealogy I would find that my Marshall ancestors came fr om Dumfries, Scotland. I asked him how he knew that, and he replied: "Beca use all the Marshalls in the world come from Dumfries." I do not know if t hat is correct, but it did turn out that my most remote ancestor that we h ave been able to identify did come from Dumfries.

Dumfries is located in the lowlands of Scotland on its border with Englan d. I have seen instances where there were Marshalls living in northweste rn England who probably went there (across the border) from Scotland.

When the Marshalls came to the New World, they are thought to have co me to three principal locations:

Nova Scotia -- which is where my line came from. Most of the descendan ts of Robert Marshall (my ancestor) have stayed in Canada, principal ly in Nova Scotia. However, some came to the United States, settling princ ipallly in the West. My father was born at Gladstone, Michigan, just as t he family had crossed into the united States. However, the family continu ed on west and settled in Nevada. Another branch of the same family settl ed in Oakland, California.

Pennsylvania (in the area of Philadelphia) -- when the Revolutionary War s tarted, these Marshalls were loyalists (they may have been an English bran ch), and most of them moved to Canada. However, they did not go to Nova Sc otia that I know of, and they did not mix into my line that immigrated dir ectly from Scotland to Nova Scotia.

Virginia -- This is the line that Chief Justice John Marshall of the Unit ed States Supreme Court came from. The people of this line did not all st ay in Virginia, and I am aware of at least one or two people who came fr om this line via Texas. If your ancestors have been in the United States s ince the Revolutionary War, it is most probable that they came through th is line.

I hope that this general explanation will help you focus on the line you c ame from. However, I think that sooner or later, all of the lines will le ad back to Scotland. If there is anything further in which I can assist yo u, I will be happy to do so.

Sincerely,
(signed)

Dear Mac, I am also descended from William Marshall, father of John Marsh all and Rebecca Clay and their daughter Phoebe Marshall (b. ca 1766) who m arried Allen Howard 17 Sept 1787 in Granville Co. NC. However I am not su re which of William's three wives was the mother of my John whose birthda te I have as 1735. Do have listings of all William's children by each wif e? I will work on the parents of Alexander!
Thanks so much. Ann Neel

Dear Jodie, Thanks for responding to my query on our ancestor Alexander M arshall. I am a direct descendant to his son William Marshall - my 5th gre at grandfather and his wife Pheobe Farmer Marshall. One of their daughte rs was Sarah Marshall born in 1751 married my 4 times great grandfather Jo hn Robards in Goochland County, Virginia in 1772. The Marshalls liv ed in an adjoining county named Cumberland Co., Virginia. Hope this giv es you some information you were looking for. Your ancestor is the same Wi lliam Marshall. The Marshalls and the Robards were very wealthy colonis ts back in those days. Do you know who the parents of our Alexander Marsh all was? Mac H. Robards Tupelo, Ms.

William, John Sr. and John Jr. are my ancestors and my husband's. We wi ll be thankful for any info anyone can share concerning them or their ance stors. We believe that Wm was born about 1706 in Wake, NC; don't know w ho he married. John Sr. was born about 1735 and married Rebecca Clay in Wa ke NC about 1779. John Jr. born about 1780, Wake NC and married Mildred "M illy" Waller Arnold Apr. 30 1813 in Granville, NC. John Jr.'s son Joseph w as born about 1814 in NC, and married Nancy Layfield in Hancock, G A. As I said previously if you can shed some light on this family tree a nd shake the branches so that the fruits of your labor can fall in our bas ket of info we would be grateful.

I think John Marshall, Sr. and Rebecca Clay were married much earlier th an 1779 because they had a daughter, Nancy, who was born in 1764. She marr ied John Longmire and removed to Campbell Co. in East Tennessee c.1805/ 6. I would be interested in hearing from you...liz

John Marshall Sr. died in Orange Co, NC probably 1810-1812. He had a fa rm on the Enos River outside of Hillsborough and most likely it is on h is farm that he was buried. His farm was located where Little Creek and t he Enos river connect. The directions I have are old- off St Mary's Road f rom Hillsborough, past Lawrence Road, cross Lillte Creek, turn right on Be rry Mill Road to the Enos River. William Marshall died 8 Mar 1764 in Cumb erland Co Va. His will was probated 28 May 1764.

Jodie, bless you and thanks. I absolutely agree with you, but I cannot con vince my friend, Jim Marshall, from New Jersey. I am certain that Rev. Jo hn did NOT die in VA, TN or KY. I checked out your list of his childr en - except for son, John, Jr., who moved to Hancock Co. (GA) and I wi ll do that tomorrow - and there is no reason to suspect that, in old ag e, he suddenly up and moved elsewhere to be with them. Most of them se em to have remained in the Orange-Granville-Wake counties (NC) area as lo ng as he lived and only moved elsewhere after his death. Bill

Where? This Samuel had a b rother Stephen also in Warren Co NC. Who were Stephen MARSHALL'S childre n? This is not the Samuel MARSHALL of Mecklenburg Co.

Like his brother Thomas Rives, Joseph Rives was illiterate. Both he and h is wife, Sarah, made their marks to the two deeds recorded in 1731 in Is le of Wight county: conveying, in the one deed executed on April 9, 173 1. 190 acres "in the Parish of Warwicke Creek and county of Isle of Wig ht taken up by Joseph Rives and adjoining his other land" to Richard Syke s, of Bristol Parish, Isle of Wight county, and in the other deed execut ed on May 15, 1731, 100 acres in the same county "on the southside of t he Great Meadow John Peterson his land" to George Cater, of Isle of Wig ht county. In both of these deeds the grantor, Joseph Rives, is describ ed as "of Bristol Parish in the County of Prince George." Some years lat er he appears in the patent books of the Virginia Land Office as the paten tee on March 6, 1739, for twenty shillings of 194 acres on the southsi de of the second swamp of Blackwater in Prince George county adjoining RIC HARD ACOCK'S land.

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~monticue/coursey_genealogy.htm

Notes for William Coursey:

"A History of Lewisburg and North Logan County", compiled by the North Log an County Historical Society, highlights his marriage and children, page 2 56. Viola Coursey Harris wrote that the Coursey's were believed to be Fre nch-Irish and Indian blood lines. William was a surveyor for the US gover nment and came to KY from MD while a private in the 9th VA Regiment duri ng the Revolutionary War. He was believed to have gone to KY via OH< V A< GA and the Carolinas. His first wife died in Maryland.

Per the Richard Coursey file:

A William and a William Coursey Jr. were living in Choptank Hundred Twp ., Carolina Co., MD in 1778.

It is believed he was born about 1727 in Kent Co., MD and died about 1813/ 1815 in Logan County, Kentucky. It is believed he is buried in the Cours ey Cemetery on what was then his son Robert's farm. The farm was believ ed to have been granted to William by the Government about 1790, and th at Robert and Charles moved to KY and about 1795 to "prove up" the land.

William was a surveyor in SC from 1765 to 1800 and is listed on many la nd descriptions having surveyed or plotted the tracts granted to perso ns by the Government. While he was in SC, he was notified that his wife h ad died and the children were being taken care of by relatives. He did n ot return to MD but continued on to GA and then to KY. the children list ed with William and Fannie may have been his children from the first marri age. William Jr. was with his father in SC in 1792-1799 as were his sibli ngs: Charles, Allen, Robert, Lucy, Nancy, Elizabeth and Mary. Others w ho may have been siblings or somehow relates were John, James, Lewis, a nd Daniel. John Coursey died around 1812 leaving a wife, Elizabeth. Jam es Coursey died about 1800. Both John and James could have been sons of W illiam (Sr.) or his brothers.

Notes from Brenda Webster's FGS notes that William was on the tax li st of Albermarle Co., VA, District 5, in 1782.

In the book "The Book "The Descendants of William Coursey," written by A. B. Whillhite, pubished 2001, children of William and his first wife were J ohn, James, Nancy and Allen. Children of William and his second wife, Mar y, were Charles, Edward William, and Robert. He said that Mary had sign ed deeds when he was in SC. He states that William's third wife was Eliza beth Ann Acock, born 1755 in NC and that he doesn't believe thy had any ch ildren.

Believed to have gone to KY by way of OH, VA, GA and theCarolinas. First wife died in MD. Viola Coursey Harris wrotetha the Coursey's were believed to be French-Irish and Indianblood lines,moved from SC to KY early 1800(Nancy to Lucyprobably from 1st wife)[possible Father or Grandfather - HenryCoursey who helped begin Talbot Maryland from Dublin, Ireland][Col. Henry Coursey b. 1629 Ireland d. Maryland, wife ElizabethSmith, son James that may have changed name to Corse]

There was a William Coursey living in No Twp. Listed, OrangeCo., Md. in 1779. It is believed he was b. 1727 in Kent Co.,Maryland and d. abt. 1813/1815 in Logan Co., Kentucky and thathe is buried in the Coursey Cemetery on his son Robert's farm,but there is no headstone to verify that belief.

I believe this William is the person that was a governmentsurveyor in South Carolina from 1765 to 1800 and is listed onmany land descriptions as having surveyed or plotted the tractsgranted persons by the government. I think his children laterjoined him in SC.

Note: There was a William Coursey living in Choptank Hundred Twp., Caroline Co., Md. in 1778.
There was also a William Coursey Jr. living there.
There was a William Coursey living in No Twp. Listed, Orange Co., Md. in 1779.

Edward Coursey 1 1 1 0 (45) -b. 1745
Mary Coursey 1 3 4 0 (13) -b. 1777
Came to KY while a private in th 9th VA Regiment during the Revolutionary War.
Believed to have gone to KY by way of OH, VA, GA and the Carolinas. First wife died in MD. Viola Coursey Harris wrote tha the Coursey's were believed to be French-Irish and Indian blood lines,moved from SC to KY early 1800(Nancy to Lucy probably from 1st wife)[possible Father or Grandfather - Henry Coursey who helped begin Talbot Maryland from Dublin, Ireland] [Col. Henry Coursey b. 1629 Ireland d. Maryland, wife Elizabeth Smith, son James that may have changed name to Corse]
There was a William Coursey living in No Twp. Listed, Orange Co., Md. in 1779. It is believed he was b. 1727 in Kent Co., Maryland and d. abt. 1813/1815 in Logan Co., Kentucky and that he is buried in the Coursey Cemetery on his son Robert's farm, but there is no headstone to verify that belief.
I believe this William is the person that was a government surveyor in South Carolina from 1765 to 1800 and is listed on many land descriptions as having surveyed or plotted the tracts granted persons by the government. I think his children later joined him in SC.
