Name of Family Head and Wife: John Edward Ware and Annabelle Daniel
Moved from Middlesex County, VA to: Virginia to Kentucky to Jackson County Missouri
Comments:
John Edward (Jack)Ware and Frances McKan were, I believe the parents of John Edward Ware married to Annabelle Daniel.
John and Annabelle Ware came to Missouri somewhere around 1860 as their first child born in Missouri William Ware was born in 1860.
Their other children were :
Christopher Ware, Sarah W. Ware,John Ware, Susan B. Ware, John T. Ware and Lewis Frank Ware.
Annie Ware was at one time married to my gg grandfather Ollie Cree Underwood who later married my gg grandmother Florence Belle Daniel ( Whose parents I have as Jim and Sally Daniel). A sister of Annie, Susie was married to my gg-grandfather Ollie Cree Underwoods brother William T. Underwood. Additionally, Annie, who was married to my grandfather later married a Jesse Daniel . ( I have death certificates for both Jesse Daniel and Annie P. Ware Daniel)

I am having a very difficult time sorting out Daniel's and Ware's and figuring out what relation they were to one another as obviously someone was marrying cousins or something ??

I would appreciate any help sorting these people out.

Middlesex Co., 1 Sep 1736)and his wife Jane GOGGANS and Stokeley TOWLES (b. Middlesex Co. abt 1743) and his wife martha GILLEY and possibly uncle or cousin Joseph TOWLES (b. abt 1730 Middlesex Co.) John, Oliver, Joseph and Stokeley TOWLES served in the SC militia during the Revolution (John and Oliver served in the 3rd SC Regiment of Horse "Thomson's Rangers", Joseph also served in that unit as well, but no muster record shows Stokeley's name to prove his service)- John was hung, and Oliver was captured, shot and killed by the Tory band let by "Bloody Bill" Cunningham in November 1781, and Stokeley was killed by Ned Turner, one of Cunningham's men soon afterwards.

Name: David Dennis Stacey <stacey_gen@mindspring.com>
Date: 2004-05-03
Name of Family Head and Wife: Thomas Stacey
Came to Middlesex County, VA from: Coulchester, Essex, England, 1656, Sponsored by Martin Baker
Moved from Middlesex County, VA to: St. Mary's County, MD, then Chowan County, NC, died april 19, 1697 in Chowan County, NC
Comments:
Thomas Stacey, Elizabeth, Rebeckah Standley Stacey, Mary Standley, Thomas, Charles, John and Francis.
Colchester, Essex, England, Middlesex County, VA, St. Mary’s, MD, Chowan County, NC
Report filed by D. D. Stacey, webmaster, http://www.mindsprng.com/~stacey_gen/
Coming from a family of five brothers, including him, Thomas Stacey, sought passage to an American Colony in Virginia under the indentured passenger method. Mr. Martin Baker of New Kent County, Virginia paid his passage, arriving in Virginia in 1656. Martin Baker ran an enterprise for several years bringing many Colonist to Virginia. Strangely, this placed (Source: Early Virginia Immigrants, Page 310 listed name, date and sponsor.)
Thomas Stacey’s age upon arrival in Virginia at 16 years old. It meant Thomas would have to work as a slave until he reached the age of 21 or older. He would be 21 years of age in 1661 and would marry by 1670. (Source: A standard colonial procedure for those who were under 21 when they immigrated.)
Thomas Stacey married an Indian Native woman named Elizabeth in Christ Church Parish, Middlesex County, Virginia about 1670. This marriage would produce two sons, Thomas, born on February 18, 1679, and Charles, who was born on January 11, 1684. Both births were in Christ Church Parish where Thomas and Elizabeth lived until 1686 when Elizabeth died. (Source: ‘Parish Register of Christ Church, National Society of the Colonial Dames Of America in the State of Virginia’).
During the Indian Wars of 1676 in Virginia, Middlesex County furnished men for the militia. Thomas Stacey is listed as one of the thirty-six men selected for the militia from Middlesex. (Source: The Indian War of 1676; Wm. and Mary College Quarterly, Vol. 7, No. 3).
Two young sons made it necessary for Thomas to take another bride. On February 27, 1687, Thomas Stacey married again to Rebecca Standly, the widow of Thomas Standly who died, too, in 1686. (Source: ‘Parish Register of Christ Church, National Society of the Colonial Dames Of America in the State of Virginia’).
Rebecca Standly was pregnant with Thomas Standly’s child when she married Thomas Stacey. Rebeckah had Thomas Standly’s daughter, Mary, on April 18, 1686 in Christ Church Parish, Middlesex County, Virginia. It is suggested that Mary Standly died between 1686 and 1697 because there is no mention of her in Thomas Stacey’s will of 1697. (Source: ‘Parish Register of Christ Church, National Society of the Colonial Dames Of America in the State of Virginia’ and Source 2: Thomas Stacey will, April 19, 1697 published in ‘Historical and Genealogical Register of North Carolina’).
Virginia probate records show Thomas Stacey was a landowner in Middlesex County in 1687. Because Thomas Stacey reveals in his will that his son, Charles is literate in reading, writing and ciphering, we know Thomas was an educated man. Education would be in demand in the colonies and a prerequisite to other leadership positions. (Source: ‘The Valentine Papers’, page 1594).
Between 1687 and 1691, Thomas Stacey moved his family from Middlesex County, Virginia to St Mary’s or Calvert County, Maryland. In 1691 and 1692 we find records of him serving on the P. R. O. Council in St. Mary's Town, St. Mary's County, Maryland just south of Calvert County, Maryland. (Source: ‘Archives of Maryland, Proceedings of the Council,’ 1691 and 1692)
Government positions were known to Stacey family members in early colonial days. A Robert Stacy served as a Burgess at the first Assembly at the Jamestown Settlement in Virginia in 1619. Symon Stacey, Thomas’ brother, served at Jamestown during it’s waning days of settlement. It has been suggest that Symon was given a government position after moving back to Virginia from Maryland and during his retirement years. (Source: Jim Stacy, Historian and Stacy researcher).
We know Thomas Stacey had relatives in Calvert County where his brother, Symon lived as late as 1684, per Maryland probate records. Other Stacey family members, namely William and Richard, lived there too, showing up in the prerogative reports of Maryland in Calvert County. William Stacy is found on prerogative reports with Symon Stacey in Calvert County. (Source 1: Maryland Calendar of Wills, page 80, Source 2: Maryland Probate Record, George & Frances Beckwith Appraisal dated November 18, 1676, Source 3: Maryland Probate Record, Payment, George Beckwith dated July 13, 1677)
William lived at Patuxent manor in Calvert County with his father and his wife, Mary The exact family relation with William Stacey’s family is unknown at this time. William Stacey inherited Patuxent Manor when his father died in 1674. (Source: Maryland Calendar of Wills, Page 80).
We find a record of Thomas Stacey’s son, Charles Stacey in the probate records of Maryland for 1709. Certainty exists in this identification because Charles Stacey is found on a 1709 prerogative report with Thomas Tench, Esq., and Kenelm Cheseldyn concerning the estate of Henry Truman. This is strong evidence of the proper family connection shown in Maryland because Thomas Stacey, his father served on P. R. O. Council with Thomas Tench, Esq and kenelm Cheseldyn is a name that is frequently seen on reports with John Stacey the sone of Thomas Stacey. Thomas Stacey’s son, John Stacey would have been born in Maryland about 1690 by Thomas and Rebecca Stacey since Thomas was living there and serving on the Council. (Source: Maryland Probate Records, Henry Truman Inventory Jan 17 1709).
Thomas and Rebeckah had one other son named Francis. We know of him only through Thomas Stacey’s will. (Source: Thomas Stacey Will, April 19, 1697 published in ‘Historical and Genealogical Register of North Carolina’).
The following incident is strong evidence that Thomas Stacey’s son John is the person found in St. Mary’s County. In 1691, Thomas Cooke served on the P. R. O. Council along with Thomas Stacey In St. Mary's. So it is not unusual that we find John Stacey as a witness to Thomas Cooke’s will in 1716. The Cooke family members were friends of the Stacey family. (Source: Archives of Maryland, Records Illustrating the History of Maryland, Page 250, dated October 12, 1691, Source 2: Maryland Calendar of Wills, Thomas Cooke, Planter, St. Mary’s Co. 3rd May, 1716).
The Provincial Government including the P. R. O. office moved to Annapolis in Anne Arundel County in 1695. Thomas Stacey would have seen this event happening and it may have been action that prompted him in 1694 to move his family to Chowan County, North Carolina. His first recorded land purchase on the Albemarle Sound was on September 1, 1694. He purchased 100 acres on the Sound which adjoined the land of Nicholas Simmons. Nicholas Simmons was a close friend of Thomas Stacey and was named in Thomas Stacey’s will in 1697. (Source: Historical and Genealogical Register of North Carolina, Book I, Page 24, 1st Sept., 1694 100 Acres, Source 2: The Will of Thomas Stacey, Chowan County, NC, 19 April, 1697, probated on 5 July 1697).
Numerous probate records may be found in Chowan County, NC for Thomas Stacey’s sons, Thomas and Charles, but little is shown for his son John Stacey in Chowan County except a church record in 1702 with his brother Thomas and a 1725 land transaction. Because we only find two records of John Stacey in Chowan County, North Carolina it becomes obvious that he is doing business somewhere else. One of the records is a tithe record from the city of Edenton in 1702 when he was a very young lad and the second record was a land sale by John Stacey in 1725, the same year his son, Bennet was born in St. Mary's County, MD. But, John Stacey of St Mary’s County, Maryland shows up in probate records there dated 1716, 1721, 1737, 1745, 1750, 1751,1759, and 1761 (Source: LDS Repository, St. Mary’s Church Register 1725, lists John, Ann and Benedict, Dec 19, 1725, Source 2: Historical and Genealogical Register of North Carolina, Land Records,
On April 19, 1697, Thomas Stacey died in Chowan County, North Carolina leaving his Plantation to his wife, Rebecca with instructions that it be passed to Thomas at her death or to Charles should Thomas die before inheritance. Four sons were named in his will, Thomas, Charles, John, and Francis. No other records have been found for Rebecca’s daughter, Mary Standly, so it is probable that by 1697 she is dead.
A record has not been found showing a date that John Stacey moved to Maryland. But, John Stacey returned to Chowan County from St Mary’s, Maryland to sell land in 1725. John Stacey of Chowan County, NC lived on the Albemarle Sound, one of the water routes between the colonies and could easily have moved back and forth to Maryland. By 1711-12 John Stacey would already be 21 years of age. We find Anne Stacey in a record of 1712 doing laundry for John Parsons. The 1725 birth record found by Becky Madruga shows the father and mother of Bennet Stacey to be John Stacey and Ann. John Parsons owned 200 acres of land in St. Mary’s County, according to ‘Settlers of Maryland 1679-1700, by Peter Wilson Coldham. John Parsons earned 50 acres from working an indenture and another 150 acres of land in St Mary’s for bringing his family. John Parson shows up on probate records in Maryland with John Stacey. It is very convincing evidence that John Stacey from Chowan County, North Carolina moved to St. Mary’s at that time. The source records found indicate that it is no coincidence that we find Thomas Stacey in St. Mary’s in 1691-92, Charles Stacy in Calvert County, MD in 1709 and John Stacey witnessing Thomas Cooke’s will in 1716 in St Mary’s, Maryland along with other records through the years he was in Maryland.
After Bennet Stacey was born in St Mary’s County, Maryland he is found working with John in farming tobacco in probate records of 1759; in Philip Keys’ inventory report in St Mary’s County and again in 1769 with his father, John in Ann Arundel County, Maryland in the inventory of Richard Chew where they both had credit accounts for tobacco. Regarding Bennet Stacey, we know he married Sarah Haskins of St. Mary’s County and he is named in the Will of Aaron Haskins, Sarah’s father on June 2, 1767 in St Mary’s County Maryland. (Source: Maryland Probate Records, 1674 – 1774 Gensource)
Although, all of the above information about Thomas Stacey is sourced information, not all researchers agree that Thomas Stacey in St. Mary’s County, Maryland is one and the same as Thomas Stacey of Middlesex County, VA and Chowan County, NC. As for this Stacy researcher, I am convinced Thomas Stacey in Maryland is the same as Thomas Stacey who lived in Middlesex County, VA and Chowan County, NC. Other reports found on this site offer another scenario in Calvert County and St. Mary’s County.

Children Of Joseph Carter and Catherine Ammon
Robert Huddleston born 1734 and an Elizabeth Carter born 1739 of the Parish, married at the Berkeley Parish in 1759.
The marriage of Joseph Carter born 30 Apr 1704 who married Catherine Ammon born 1706-marriage 1 Dec 1731 means the Robert Huddleston born 1743 must of been the one who married Elizabeth Carter and we are left wondering still which Elizabeth was married to Robert Huddleston born 1720.
