Looking For My WEAVER and Other Relatives:
My GGGGGF Othniel Weaver was born about 1750 in Anson or Bladen, NC and his property on Hill's Creek eventually ended up in present day Chesterfield County, SC (Previously Craven, Cheraw and St. David’s Districts) About 1787, Othniel moved his family to the Little River area of Wilkes County, GA and became a member of Phillips Mill Baptist Church. He was recorded at various times in Washington, Baldwin and Wilkinson Counties before settling in Morgan County where he died in 1817. Othniel was a pioneer Baptist preacher in early Georgia history along with his step son-in-law, Jesse Mercer and many other WEAVER relatives. Family tradition holds that his parents were Aaron and Hannah WEAVER, who were killed by Bloody Bill Cunningham in “The Massacre At Cloud's Creek” in Edgefield County, SC in November 1781. He married first, Sarah HOLLEY The widow of Joel CHIVERS about 1783 in Chesterfield, SC. She had these CHIVERS children: Thomas 1768, Joel 1770, Larkin 1771, Sabrina 1772, Jane 1774 And Jamimah 1776. Together Othniel and Sarah had these WEAVER children: Julius 1785, Hannah 1787, Rachael 1789, William 1791, John 1793, Jane 1795, Lovina 1797 and Jonathan 1800. He married secondly Susannah JONES, the widow of Thomas HUGHEY about 1807 in Wilkes County, GA. She had these HUGHEY children: John 1793, Betsey Elizabeth 1795, Mary 1798, Aley 1799, William Dixon 1801, Joseph A. 1802, and Thomas 1806. Together Othniel and Susannah had these WEAVER children: Jesse 1808, James 1809, Nancy 1810 and Isaac Suttles 1812 (My GGGGF). These children married into many of the early pioneer families that traveled together in their 200-year migration from the old countries to Wilkes County, GA. These are a few of the related families: ADAIR, ADCOCK, ALFORD, ANDERSON, AYCOCK, AYERS, ANDREW, ANDREWS, BALL, BARHAM, BARON, BARRON, BARTON, BAXLEY, BLACK, BOLT, BONAPARTE, BOONE, BRANCH, BRASWELL, BRAZIL, BREAZEALE, BRISKEY, BRUCE, BRYANS, BULLOCH, BULLOCK, BURKE, BURK, BURKS, BURKES, BUTLER, CADE, CALLAWAY, CALLAWAY, CHEEVERS, CHEWNING, CHIVERS, CHURCH, CLARK, CLARKE, CLARKE, CLOUD, COLLINS, CONWAY, COOK, COOKE, CRUMP, DAVIS, DICKSON, DOHERTY, DUNGAN, EVANS, EVENS, FREEBORN, FITZGERALD, FLOOD, FLOYD, FLOYD, FLOYD, FULGHUM, GARRARD, GATES, GAY, GIRRARD, GREEN, GREENE, GRIFFIN, GRIGSBY, GRIMSLEY, HARALSON, HARRIS, HARRIS, HAY, HAYES, HAYS, HESTER, HEXT, HINTON, HOLBROOK, HOLLAND, HOLLEY, HUEY, HUGHEY, JACKSON, JENKINS, JOHNSON, JOHNSTON, JOHNSTONE, JONES, LEVERETT, LEVERETTE, LEVERITT, LIVERETT, LIGNON, LINDSEY, LOVING, MAYFIELD, MCLENDON, MCGEHEE, MEADOWS, MERCER, MORGAN, MOSELEY, NICHOLAS, NOLAN, O'BRIEN, OLDHAM, O'NEAL, POOL, POST, REEVES, REYNOLDS, ROCKETT, RUNNELS, RUSSELL, RUSSELL, SANDS, SATTERWHITE, SCOTT, SHARPE, SHIVERS, SMITH, SMITH, SPENCE, SPENCER, SPOONER, SPRINGER, STEPHENS, STEWART, SUTTON, THOMEY, THRASHER, THRESHER, TRAMMELL, TRAYNHAM, TREADWAY, UPSHAW, VEAZEY, WARREN, WASHINGTON, WASHINGTON, WATTS, WEAVER, WEVER, WHITE, WILHITE, WILKERSON, WILLIAMS, WILLIAMSON, and WRIGHT. These families came primarily from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. They came through Barbados, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Their descendants were found in many Georgia Counties when the Westward migration began. These counties included Baldwin, Butts, Clarke, Clay, Columbia, Early, Franklin, Greene, Harris, Henry, Jasper, Morgan, Newton, Oconee, Randolph, Richmond, Troup, Walton, Washington, Wilkes and many others. If you have any connection to these families, I would like to hear from you.
