Descendants of Thomas Whitheford/Weatherford


24. JAMES6 WEATHERFORD (MARTIN5, RICHARD R.4, WILLIAM WHITHEFORD/3, JOHN WHITHEFORD/2, THOMAS1 WHITHEFORD/WEATHERFORD) was born 1750 in Lunenburg Co., Virginia, and died Bef. 1800 in Possibly Edgefield, Edgefield Co., South Carolina. He married UNKNOWN. She died Unknown.

Notes for J
AMES WEATHERFORD:
Some earlier research stated that James was the only one of Martin's sons that we know of that remained in Ga. The others left with their father Martin after his trial in 1783 and headed for St. Augustine, Florida then on to the Bahama's. James served as Capt. in Browns Rangers. There is documentation stating that James was also ordered out of Augusta, Ga. on 4 May 1782. He was living in Richmond Co., Ga. at this time when their properties were confiscated and they were banished to British possessions. Ref: Candler, Revolutionary Records of Ga., Vol. 1, p. 186 ( 1769-1782). Some researchers claim that he died in Richmond Co., Ga.
NOTE; I have changed the information in regards to James remaining in Ga. as new research that was done by Woody Weatherford has now found that his previous research was incorrect in regards to James remaining in Ga. He also states that he has not yet documented Elias as a son of James, so keep this in mind while researching this line at this time. Woody states that James had left the area and headed to South Carolina and resided there until 1793.
The following is found on the 1810 Darlington Co., S.C. Census. There are no Weatherfords prior to the 1810 Census for the area.

Notes for C
HARLES WEATHERFORD:
Charles was a Govt. Contractor. He was the first owner of the first race Courses in Alabama. He was a Scottish Trader who also had a half blood mother. Charles married an Indian wife. He lived at his Horse Track on the Alabama River, which was about five miles upriver from his wife Sehoy. I understand that it was customary for Indian Couples to live in separate housing, so Charles kept that custom with Sehoy.
James Albert Pickett tells the story in the History of Alabama: In 1792, Creeks frequently attacked homes on the Cumberland. They captured a young girl by the name of Elizabeth Baker and brought her back to Coosawda, after murdering her family before her eyes. Across the River, Charles Weatherford heard of the girl and ransomed her back, putting her in the care of Sehoy his wife.
Charles had come to the Creek Nation prior to 1778 and shortly after the close of the American Revolution, in company with Samuel Mims, who was once engaged with George Galphin in the Indian Trade. He was also an old friend of Lachland McGillivray. In later years Alexander McGillivray would be instrumental in the arrest of Charles which he was imprisoned in Florida on 3 Dec 1786. But Alexander then saw the hardship that this had on Charles' wife Sehoy and the family, that he then wrote a letter to get Charles released in 1788. Afterwards Charles would never be able to continue a relationship with Alexander and did everything in his power to discredit Alexander. Some researchers claim Charles to be a Scotsman.
Charles died in Fort Bennin Military Reservation of Ga. Later to become known as the Kylo Place which was just south of Columbus, Ga. Which was just two miles south of the Coosa and Tallapoosa Rivers.

This is from the Calender of State Papers & other Manuscripts. Dated from 1 Jan 1785 to 7 Jul 1789. In the Virginia Historical Index (4c183) Call # Uv 455.
"Lookout Mt. Ye 15th of Oct. 1786,
Sir, We have very little news on this quarter, only I saw Mr. Martin a few days ago on his way from the Creek Nation. He informs me that he has made a lasting piece with the Creeks for Cumberland. He was in company with Charles Weatherford, two Creeks and a Linquestor. The French hear carry a very high hand, and I expect in a very short time will draw all the Indians off to their interest. They sell them the best Diffle Blankets for one otter skin or two pounds of Beaver fur which is much cheaper than we can purchase them at Augusta. If the States don't do somthing shortly the American Traders must give over al pretensions of Trading in future, and give up the traid to Detroit where those French traid to.
I am S'r,y'r most H'ble Serv't
John A. Dare"

Notes for S
EHOY III:
Sehoy III was of the Wind Clan, which was referred to as "The House Of Wind, The Ruling Tribe". Sehoy was brought up in her early days by Sam Moniac. She was very beautiful as was her mother and grandmother.
James Albert Pickett's book "The History of Alabama" tells us a story of an incident that had taken place in 1792, The Creeks were frequently attacking homes on the Cumberland. They had captured a young girl by the name of Elizabeth Baker and brought her back to Coosawda after murdering her family before her eyes. Across the river, Charles had heard of the incident and he ransomed the young girl back and placed her with Sehoy III.
Sehoy is buried with her sons William (Red Eagle) and John (Jack) and a daughter and an adopted child. They are buried on David Tate's "Brickyard Plantation".
In letters to Col. A.J. Pickett which are dated 1858. States that Malcom McPherson was the natural father of Sehoy who had married John Tate and Charles Weatherford. Some seem to think Lachlan McGillivray. Will we ever know the true father of Sehoy III?
Sehoy was introduced to Charles through McGillivray. He had arranged for the marriage of Sehoy and Charles.
At the birth of their son William "Red Eagle," there was attendance by a huge delegation of Great War Chiefs and prophets of the Creek Nation for the importance of Sehoy ranking as a princess in the ruling of the Wind Clan of the Creeks. As I have referred to before... At times you will find information stating that the Tribes had no such title as a "princess", but others tend to state there was. Her young Chief would spend his first ten years in the atmosphere around Alexander McGillivray. The respect that the young Chief carried for his fine uncle and just the association alone, proved rewarding for the future Chief that would later fight for his people.
The Americans that had removed from the white settlement and into the Alabama area were surprised to find the Creeks not only well adjusted, but intelligent as well. They were surprised to find the Creeks were quite wealthy and living in permanent housing, along with slaves. They were also a tribe that was rich in farmlands and domesticated animals.
At the age of sixteen Sehoy's son had completed his three years of torturous preparation and her son became a Warrior of the Creek Nation. By the time her son was at the age of twenty, he had become a Minor War Chief. He was a very handsome man with undeniable qualities for leadership of his people. He was also a wealthy young man who could indulge in dramatic costume and fine horses. He would dress in the most elaborate bleached white buckskins and rode the finest of the stallions from the Little River stables. He made a very striking appearance with his eyes of black and his handsomely bronzed face. Sehoy was very proud of her son...
