subject George Levin English
What would you like to discuss? Family History
pertaining to what county & state ? English Missouri/Kansas
Comments:
I am trying to track down the ancestors for my Great Grandfather George Levin English. My Grandmother never knew who her Grandfather was, therefore I don't have much to go on from a family history standpoint. George was born on 2/17/1875 in Missouri or KS (maybe Marion County or Miami County) and died in Arkansas City, Kansas on 2/19/1950.

His mother was Sarah Ann Douglas. She was born in Howard County, Mo. to John W. Douglas and Mary Andrews. I have Sarah's ancestors traced back to before the Revolutionary war.

On the 1870 Census she was living with her family in Marion County, Mo. and was not married. They were living there near her grandfather who died in 1870. The family left Missouri and came to Kansas. In 1880 Census she was living in Miami County, KS with George Levin English, she had taken the name Sarah English but was living with her parents. There are no marriage records that I could find.

Levin is such an unusual name. It is not found anywhere on the Douglas side. I see that there are some Levin English's on this site. I wonder if there is a connection.

One more clue on the 1880 Census for George L. English mother's place of birth, it states Oregon, but I am certain she was born in Missouri. The column is next to Father's place of birth. I wonder if they meant father's place of birth.

George was musically talented and was a fiddler player. I have a photo of him playing the fiddle I could share. Also, George was a Texas Ranger for a few years in the late 1890's.

Sarah went on to marry a David Eads in the 1890's and moved to New Mexico. They came back to Arkansas City Ks in the 1900's and remained there until their deaths. George English married Onie Lemon, she was a widow, who had married a Solomon Greenhaw, who was killed in an accident. George had 7 children, six survived to adulthood and he had 3 stepchildren.

Any information anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated and mean a great deal to our family. Thank you.

The birth date that you have listed for JOHN WESLEY ENGLISH, JR., b. Feb 1844, Franklin Co., GA; d. 16 Dec 1941 is incorrect. He was born Feb 27, 1841 He was 100 years and 9 months old when he dies. At the time, he was the oldest living citizen in Banks County Georgia. He was my grandfather's grandfather and lived with them until his death.
He is buried at Bethany Christan Church Cemetery in Banks County Georgia.
I would love to connect with other descendants of John Wesley English SR of Banks County Georgia.

According to the 1880 United States Census John 'Wesley' English, Sr. was not born in NC. Since it was a self reporting census he lists his place of birth as South Carolina. That is probably the reason it is hard to track any information about him down.

I just had to send an email and/or leave a note. When I clicked on this website I was floored to see the pictures of the gentleman at the bottom of the page. He looks exactly like my grandfather, Frank H English. Frank was born in Iowa in 1916 to James H and Agnes English. They moved to Oneida, NY when my grandfather was young. Frank married Shirley A Johnson in 1935 and they moved to Florida in 1943, right after my mother was born. Again, I just had to say something because those pictures just set me back on my heels.

Please do contact me if anyone out there is related to me.

Sincerely, Tammy Morris

subject Capt. James English
Comments:
You glowingly describe Capt. James English as "a beloved citizen and builder of Atlanta for over half a century, a financial genius and a leader in all lines of humanitarian endeavor. The splendid principles of honor, integrity, and usefulness permeated all his life's action." He was NO such thing: Your beloved Capt. James English operated his brick factory almost entirely with forced labor.

Many had been convicted of frivolous or manufactured crimes and then leased by the city to Mr. English's company, Chattahoochee Brick Co. Testimony described hellish conditions at Chattahoochee Brick and other operations owned by Mr. English, a luminary of the Atlanta elite and a man hardly anyone in the reviving city would have associated with human cruelty. But by 1908, Mr. English -- despite having never owned antebellum slaves -- was a man whose great wealth was inextricably tied to the enslavement of thousands of men.

Born in 1837 near New Orleans and orphaned as a teenager, he served as a young man in the Confederate army, rising to become a captain in a prominent Georgia brigade. After the South's defeat, he went to Atlanta to establish himself in the business and politics of the bustling new capital of southern commerce. He led a drive to make the city the state capital of Georgia, cementing its foundation as an economic center. In 1880 he was elected mayor.

Presiding from an elegant home, Mr. English, a portly man with a thick shock of white hair and a matching mustache, fostered a collection of enterprises that grew as Atlanta emerged from its Civil War ruin.

Chattahoochee Brick
The base of his wealth, Chattahoochee Brick, relied on forced labor from its inception, in 1878, and by the early 1890s, more than 150 prisoners were employed in the wilting heat of its fires. By 1897, Mr. English's enterprises controlled 1,206 of Georgia's 2,881 convict laborers, engaged in brick making, cutting crossties, lumbering, railroad construction and making turpentine. Mr. English parlayed his industrial wealth to become one of the South's most important financiers as well. In 1896, he founded Atlanta's Fourth National Bank and became its first president.

Mr. English strenuously denied to the Georgia committee that any "act of cruelty" had ever been "committed upon a convict" under the control of himself or any member of his family. He insisted that he and his son were essentially absentee owners of the brick factory, having little to do with its daily operations.

"If a warden in charge of those convicts ever committed an act of cruelty to them," Mr. English said, "and it had come to my knowledge, I would have had him indicted and prosecuted."

Yet his testimony affirmed how Chattahoochee Brick -- like so many other Southern enterprises -- forced laborers to their absolute physical limits to extract modern levels of production using archaic manufacturing techniques.

Once dried, the bricks were carried at a double-time pace by two dozen laborers running back and forth -- under almost continual lashing by Mr. English's overseer, Capt. James T. Casey. Witnesses testified that guards holding long horse whips struck any worker who slowed to a walk or paused.

By the end of the century, the forced laborers churned out 300,000 hot red rectangles of hardened clay every day. Millions were sold to the Atlanta City Council to pave streets and line the sidewalks of Atlanta's flourishing new Victorian neighborhoods, according to company and city records.

The prisoners of the brickyard produced nearly 33 million bricks in the 12 months ending in May 1907, generating sales of $239,402 -- or about $5.2 million today. Of that, the English family pocketed the equivalent of nearly $1.9 million in profit -- an almost-unimaginable sum at the time.

A string of witnesses told the legislative committee that prisoners at the plant were fed rotting and rancid food, housed in barracks rife with insects, driven with whips into the hottest and most-intolerable areas of the plant, and continually required to work at a constant run in the heat of the ovens.

On Sundays, white men came to the Chattahoochee brickyard to buy, sell and trade black men as they had livestock and, a generation earlier, slaves on the block. "They had them stood up in a row and walked around them and judged of them like you would a mule," testified one former guard at the camp.

Another guard told the committee that 200 to 300 floggings were administered each month. "They were whipping all the time. It would be hard to tell how many whippings they did a day," testified Arthur W. Moore, a white former employee.

A rare former convict who was white testified that after a black prisoner named Peter Harris said he couldn't work because of a grossly infected hand, the camp doctor carved off the affected skin tissue with a surgeon's knife and then ordered him back to work. Instead, Mr. Harris, his hand mangled and bleeding, collapsed after the procedure. The camp boss ordered him dragged into the brickyard and whipped 25 times. "If you ain't dead, I will make you dead if you don't go to work," shouted a guard. Mr. Harris was carried to a cotton field. He died lying between the rows of cotton.

Maybe the birth year is wrong. Any information would be appreciated. Also I am trying to find out the parents of Wade Hampton Adams, 1821-1895.

pertaining to what county & state ? Matthew/Dicey
Comments:
Alright, so I'm not even 100% positive that I've found the right line of English's! Here's what I believe to be my family line:
My father is Dana English, son of Tommy English & Doris Baker.
Tommy English is the son of Arnold Arthur & Clara Sally Hargrove.
Arnold Arthur is the son of Arthur Byron & Nancy Elizabeth Chapman
Arthur Byron is the son of James M English & Martha Elizabeth Hargrove
James M. English is the son of Joseph English & Elizabeth Hamm.
Joseph is the son of Matthew & Nancy (Agnes) Gordon....but this is where I hit a snag. I have a marriage record for a Matthew & Nancy, but in looking at all these land records, the only name I'm seeing is this "Dicey" person. Do I have the wrong line? Is Dicey a second wife? What is Dicey's maiden name?

I'm only just beginning my quest for this side of the family, so I'm still trying to work out the kinks and make sure I even have it all right!

Also, I saw a note on here with reguard to a T.C. English family bible, with the children of Joseph & Elizabeth. Who has possession of that bible currently? Is there any way I can get a scan of the family page e-mailed to me? I have a few photos of the more recent English generations (Arnold Arthur, Arthur Byron) if anyone is interested in viewing those.
I'd sincerely appreciate any information you can provide. I seem to find a few different lines claiming Matthew & Dicey as ancestors, so I'd like to know if I'm even on the right track!!
Thanks!

Their son is my great great grandfather, George Washington English. George was born around 1844 in Missouri but I do not know what county.

pertaining to what county & state ? VA NC TN GA
Comments:
I am attempting to reconstruct history already done by other family members and then lost. I know previous research had taken us back many great grandfathers to a John English who was the Sherriff of Londontowne. I believe later descendants include a Joshua English who married a Mary Holmes, but perhaps he was a great grand many times nephew.
The original Englishes of my family were from ancient England. They were named English, Ingles, "Angles", to distinguish them from Saxons.
I know the immigrants were in Virginia, then North Carolina, then some went to Tennessee and some spread to Georgia, near Macon.
Any body have any ready data to add before I begin the reinvention of the wheel in ernest?
Also, I am happy to assist anybody who wants someone to look around in Maury or other nearby counties in Tennessee for their English connections. Family helps family.

... Seeking Jeremiah MORRIS, wife Nancy Mary ENGLISH, and children of Iowa & Oregon ...

My research shows:

Jeremiah MORRIS m. 26 Sep 1837 in Des Moines County, Iowa, Nancy ENGLISH (aka Nancy Mary, Mary A., Mary Nancy ENGLISH) b. 16 Dec 1821 in Iowa, daughter of Levin Nelson ENGLISH (b. 1792 in MD) and Mary TUCKER (b. abt. 1790 in KY). Two children born of this union, ages 12 & 8 in 1850 Marion County, Oregon census, were Hiram MORRIS (b. abt. 1838 in Iowa) and Anna MORRIS (b. abt. 1842 in Iowa).

"Mary" ENGLISH/Morris m2 on 11 Jun 1845 "on or near Platte River - now Kansas Territory (one doc says Indian Territory)" on the Oregon Trail, Colman BURNETT (aka Coleman BURNETT). Two BURNETT children also in 1850 household with "Coleman BURNETT" (occupation: miller) and wife "Mary" are William BURNETT (age 4) and Mary J. BURNETT (age 1).

"Emigrants to Oregon In 1845" shows this newly created family of 4 traveled on the same train with the English family, Sarah Eads (Mrs. Levi Burden) and the Burden family. http://www.oregonpioneers.com/1845.htm
Sarah Eads Burden is the sister of Henry William Eads, who married Annie Morris (my maternal 2nd great-grandparents.)

The majority of my Eads family, including Henry, came to Oregon (with the Sager family) on the Gilliam Train in 1844. Captain Cornelius Gilliam's sister Elizabeth was the 2nd wife of Henry Eads's maternal grandfather, Abraham Collet. Henry's father Solomon Eads is listed as an appraiser of the Sager estate. His sister-in-law Lucy Nancy Walker (wife of Moses Eads) and her daughter Elvira cared for the Sager baby after the Sager parents died on the trail.

Jeremiah Morris seems to be out of the picture (deceased or divorced?) by 1845. I do not know if he began the trek to Oregon, and I cannot find a trace of him.

In 1850 Marion County, OR, living next door to the Colman BURNETT family is L. N. ENGLISH (age 67 or 62) and wife Mary (age 60).

Oregon Donation Land Claims state: "Burnett, Colman & wife" arrived in Oregon 1 Dec 1845, and filed DLC# 957 for 625.77 Ac. in T4S R4W Sec. 8,9. Land Claim (settled 18 June 1855) shows Colman b. 1820 in Pittsylvania, VA, and verifies marriage date. Colman signed with his mark (X).

By 1870 census, 4 more BURNETT children have been born.

In 1880 census, C. BURNETT and 4-year-old granddaughter reside together; no others are in the household. Census Place Sublimity, Marion, Oregon. Where are Mary/Nancy and the children (though, children could be on their own by now)? And what happened to first husband, Jeremiah MORRIS?

I strongly suspect the child Anna MORRIS (aka Ann/Annie/Martha Ann MORRIS) to be my gg grandmother, m. 24 Aug 1856 in Spring Valley, Polk Co., Oregon, Henry William EADS (sometimes spelled: EADES), b. 07 Nov 1827 in Cole County, Missouri, son of Solomon EADS and Susannah H. COLLET. Ann MORRIS and H. W. EADS had the following children: Iola Entine EADS, Charles Edward EADS (born as: Lorenzo Dow Eads), Albert McClellan EADS, Jeremiah Morris EADS, William Ellis "Dell" EADS, Acklis Jackson Clinton EADS (aka "Jack" & Jackson Eads), Mittie (Mithilda ?) L. EADS, and one more who died young before 1870.

In 1870 census (due to an April 1870 divorce), Annie Morris Eads is missing from the Eads family household, and is said to have "removed to Marion county." The only female Eads born in Iowa found in 1870 Marion county is one L. A. Eads, age 26, in what appears to be a boarding house in Salem; father of foreign birth. (Note the age is slightly off, but not uncommon in census records, I've discovered.)

This couple remarry to each other later in 1870, and have last child "Mittie"on 19 May 1871. By 1880, H. W. Eads is widowed. We can find no trace of what happened to Annie except family lore. (The lore of one family branch says Annie is half Indian.)

Census and land records show this English family lived in Sublimity, Marion County, Oregon, precinct. Iola Entine (Eads) Miller's obituary states she was born in Sublimity, Oregon. It makes sense that Annie, especially if that young, would go home to her mother's to have her first baby.

I am also hoping you can provide some information that will lead to either proving or disproving this connection. If you have such information, or would like to pursue the possibility of a connection, please contact me.

More EADS/MORRIS information can be found on GenCircles, "Carol Tallman Jones Heritage Hideout" at: http://www.gencircles.com/users/clj3/1

BTW, Thanks for the great site.

What would you like to discuss? Does he have siblings?
pertaining to what county & state ? Burlington Co, NJ
Comments:
I have hit a wall with a James C English b about 1818 in Burlington Co NJ. We do not know what the C stands for except that it appears in several generations. James married a Catherine Smith b 1820. Her mother is Elizabeth Smith b 1790 and lived with them till her death in Philadelphia. The family lived in North liberties ward 5 area. He was a paperhanger as were his children...George Thomas, James, Hannah, Edmund C, Catherine (called Kate), Elwood, Ida, and Adelaide.

The 1880 census lists James a being born Burlinton Co NJ and both of his parents being born in NJ as well. My suspicion is that they are related to the English Creek settlement of NJ or the English's that lived in Chesterfield Twp Burlington Co. There is a George that lived there during the 1830 census and he has a son of the correct age, plus there is a Thomas English and a Levi living very close by. They were farmers and had servants living with them. Levi had a daughter name Mary C English and a son named James and Elwood. Weird if they are related and they named their kids the same...

If anyone thinks they know something I would love to hear about it. Adelaide has living decendents and they state the family had money until they lost it after the civil war. The rumor was they were into extensive mills of some sort, hence the English Creek possibility.

I think Thomas and Levi are James's brothers but I can't prove it, with George being their father.

Help?

Loved your Web pages!

You have certainly amassed TONS of info about English-surname ancestors.

I have pretty well hit the wall with my ancestor.

My grandfather was William Wesley English. b - 28 Sept 1850 in Chillicothe, Ohio. d - 17 Nov 1938 in Leavenworth, Kansas.

His death certificate does not identify his parents.

Per his obit, he purportedly attended schools in West Virginia.

I suspect that he had parents -- but I am not totally convinced at this point. Their identities have totally eluded me.

I am about to conclude that either: 1. my ancestors were aliens (of the "take me to your leader" variety or 2. that
my great grandparents arrived in Kansas shortly ahead of a
posse and promptly went into the witness protection program.

I have marriage records showing marriage to Carrie Cogswell in 1876, and census records are pretty complete 1880 on. Everything before my grandfather's arrival in Kansas (circa 1872) is pretty much a black hole.

If any English researchers stumble accross ANYTHING re
William Wesley English, I would certainly appreciate it.

Am stuck at the moment so does anybody in the group have as their ancestors William George English and Margaret Reilly who were in Dublin in 1838? The 1838 date relates to the birth, in Dublin, of a son also named William George English.

William George English's sen., occupation was listed by his son, as delivery stable employee but whether this was in Dublin or not is anybody's guess.

Family tradition has it that other children from Wm Geo and Marg Reilly may have emigrated to America but the younger William George English went to Australia circa 1856. So if anybody can help me get out of Dublin it would be appreciated.

A friend has asked how she may identify the parent(s) of her mother who was born about 1920 in England and given to up to adoption. Her mother, now deceased, did not know the name of her parents. Her mother was given the surname of her adoptive parents. Any clues on where to start and what the English laws permit relative to opening adoption papers?

William ENGLISH B abt 1802 with wife WALLACE, came to Bytown, ON.,CAN where they had three sons: William, John Wallace, & Edward. In 1828 the boys were orphaned, with both parents dieing at different times of the same year.

I have yet to discover who raised the boys when they were orphaned. John Wallace & his wife, Sarah Jane FRY moved to WI with their first two children in 1848. William, his wife Christina and several children moved to WI several years later. Edward shows in two WI census records and as yet to be located elsewhere.

John Wallace became very wealthy in his trade as a saddle maker and owner of a company which provided saddles, knapsacks and haver sacks to the government during the Civil War, and retired at 40 yrs. and moved his family to IA. to yet become more waealthy as a farmer.

William and his family resided in Ashland, Ashland CO., WI. many years, having their last five children there. The family later moved to MN where Christina died. Willam died three months after Christina at is sons home in WI. Their married children moved to the Dakota's, & MT where I am searcing for cousins

After John Wallace and sarah died their married children moved to NE., IA., WA. & CA., where I am looking for cousins.

Should anyone have any info on this family please contact me. I will exchange records, of which I have an abundant amount. I lso have an ENGLISH site, by invitation only.

I hope someone out there can help me. I am trying to find information on my great-grandma as I know essentially nothing of her family. I have an old obit listing a little information though but ive hit dead ends every time ive looked for anything on the people. Her name was Allie Pearl and I dont even have a birth date. I do know that her first son (my grandpa was born in 1914). She had 5 brothers: D.P., Sam, Ed, Will, and Zake or Zeke. My mom knows that they came from Oklahoma (Stigler maybe?) but lived some time in Arkansas. I have found a man I believe is my great-grandma's brother in OK dying in the year 1967 in a county near Haskell where Stigler is. Oh, the obit is for great-grandma's brother DP I almost forgot about him. I know he was died in 1949 at 68 years old. I also have a family reunion posting from about the same time, maybe a little later mentioning an Elbert and a Leeman. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,
I'm from England and I'm trying to help my Mum with our family tree. We are looking for Alban Milburn English who was born in Bath UK (where I live now)on 13th November 1845.He shows on your Census record for Virginia 1870 as being called 'Albin M' English, just to confuse matters!! We know he married Margaret Fanny Lane around 1870 in Tazewell County Court House in Virginia. They had 4 children
approx D/O/B John H 1871
Ferdinand E 1874
Clara 1876
Janet E 1879
I would LOVE to hear from anyone that can shed some light on this end of our family.It seems they went to the States, and then got lost. The only other entry we have is Alban buying 'Baylin Street Wharf, Pensacola, Florida on 9th Sept 1879 for ú6000 from P.K. Hickey but we have no record of him living there.

My Mum has published our family tree 'The History of The English Family in Bath 1770-1890' and it's so interesting as I have a "Countess Isabella English" and an 'Archbishop Ferdinand English' as ancestors.We really would like to find our US English cousins and all help is gratefully received.
