Name: William Farrar <ftskc012 at yahoo dot com>

Name of Family Head; Wife Stephen Farrar Catherine Lansford
Moved to Pittsylvania from: County, State and Year Stephen from Goochland Co ca 1770's
Moved from Pittsylvania to: County, State and Year, or where he Greenville co, SC 1783/84
Comments:
Stephen Farrar (also spelled Farrow) was listed in 1782 Census, with his older brother Richard both as Farrows.

Stephen was witness to the Indenture of Raynard, Seth, Elizabeth Farrow (Farrar) Oct 1783 of the the 200 acre plantation inherited from their older sibling Shadrack Farrar, in his 1780 will proved 1782. Also witness to the Indenture was Richard Farrar (spelled in document as Farrar)
Raynard is spelled both Farrar and Farrow in this document.

Stephen married Catherine Lansford, mentioned as Catey Lansford in her fathers (Henry Lansford) 1776 will. Henry is listed in 1767 Tithables. Stephen, Richard, Seth left Pittsylvania Co after 1783 and migrated to SC, Stephen to Greenville Co, Richard and Seth to Pendleton Co, SC. Richard Farrar, was killed by Cherokee at Oconee Station, Eastatoe Valley, SC in 1792. Seth died in 1794, and Stephen died after 1797, his wife Catherine is listed in Oglethorpe Co, Ga 1800 census.

The Farrar and Young families of Pittsylvania Co apparently intermarried, it is deduced that Richard Farrar II, born 1750 in Goochland Co, Va married Phoebe Young, perhaps dtr of John Young to whom the Farrars sold Shadracks plantation, and had a son George Young Farrar who is listed in the 1800 Oglethorpe Co Census with his wife, child and a woman over 45, he is listed as agent for widow Phoebe Farrar in the 1804 and 1806 Land Lotteries. On the other hand. Also listed in the 1800 Oglethorpe Census are George Young Sr and Jr, and Leonard Young was sued along with George Y Farrar by Fielden Bell for $350 in default on payment of a slave.

So we have Farrar, Young, Lansford families of Pittsylvania Co, SC, arriving eventually in Georgia. Henry Lansford Jr's will was proved in Georgia as well.

Name of Family Head; Wife William T. Gaulden, Jr./Isabella McDaniel/McDonald
Moved from Pittsylvania to: County, State and Year, or where he Wm - Smith Co TN 1835; Isabella - Macon Co TN 1880+
Comments:
The large family of William T. Gaulden Sr. lived very close together in Pittsylvania Co (see 1810, 1820 and 1830 census). Then in the early 1830s, William Sr's wife, Peggy, died, and Wm Sr. (then in his 80s) married a significantly younger (mid 20s) woman named Dicey Burnett and quickly (!) fathered two more children. By the 1840 census, virtually all of of his children by Peggy had moved away. Wm. Sr. died in 1841.

His son, Wm Gaulden,Jr. & wife Isabella (dau of Randolph McDaniel/McDonald) left Pittsylvania Co for Tennessee around 1831 with six children in tow: Hiram, James Cunagin, Sarah, William Randall, Barnett, Elizabeth and Merryman. A seventh child, Robert A., was born in TN. William Gaulden Jr. died within 5 years of the move, leaving Isabella to rear the large family (will dated 3 Sep 1835, proved February Term, Smith Co. TN 1836, Will Book 6, p 148-149).

It is unknown whether Isabella ever returned to Pittsylvania Co. But in 1855 her son William Randall was called on to make the long trip back to fight for his father's share of Wm Sr's estate on behalf of himself and his siblings. Court records reflect that Wm Sr's 2nd wife Dicey sold some of the family's land and slaves and tried to keep all the money. Under Virginia law at that time, she had only a life estate, so she was required to share the proceeds with Wm Sr's heirs by his first wife. Others of Wm Sr's children by first wife Peggy likewise returned to Pittsylvania Co long enough to file suit for their share.

Isabella McDaniel Gaulden lived in Macon Co, TN surrounded by her children and their large families until her death in the 1880s (she was in her 80s). After her death, Isabella's children moved away as she and Wm T. Gaulden had done back in the 1830s when his mother died, some to Clay County, Arkansas, others to Texas. Today virtually no Gauldens remain in Macon County TN, but their presence there during the 19th Century is evidenced by a creek and a hollow on the USGS that bear the Gaulden name.

Name of Family Head; Wife Wm. W. Hiler & Mary (Burton) Hiler
Moved from Pittsylvania to: County, State and Year, or where he Vinton, Roanoke Co., VA , 1903. Wm. died 1910.
Comments:
According to oral history given to me by, Esther and Mary, daughters of Wm. & Mary Hiler, they moved by covered wagon from Brosville to Vinton, VA. It took them a week to cover roughly 80 miles.
William believed he had been wronged by his father over a particular piece of land he felt had been promised to him. It went to his brother John instead. This may have been just before or after his father's death, in Jan. 1903. Whether he was or wasn't intentionally slighted may never be known. William felt strongly enough about it to uproot his wife and four children and move far enough away to insure he wouldn't have to see his family again. His daughter, Esther, said that the only thing he had received from his family was a set of his parents' pillow shams that was given to him.
He went to work in the locomotive shops of the bustling new Norfolk & Western Railroad in Roanoke. This was within a few miles walking distance of where they made their new home on 7th Street in adjacent Vinton.
He worked there until he died unexpectedly at the age of 42.
Mary had her husband's body returned to Pittsylvania County by train. He then went to Brosville by horse drawn wagon and was buried in the Burton family cemetery. This is located slightly southeast of, and within sight of, the rear of Brosville Methodist Church. This was on Burton land in 1910, but may not be now. (2006). It belonged to either her father, John Washington Burton, or his father, William Harrison Burton. (They both are buried there).
William W. Hiler was the son of Wm. "Bill" John Hiler and Lydia Elvira (Lewis) Hiler. They married 11-21-1851.
Bill & Lydia also had John James Hiler; George Martin Hiler; and Sallie Willie Hiler who married Jimmy Hardy.
At some point George Martin Hiler's family adopted the H"y"ler phonetic spelling of the name. Their descendents still go by that spelling as far as is known.
After Wm. W. Hiler died, his children apparently didn't hold much ill feeling towards their Uncle John or his children. John's daughter, Mae, and William's daughter, Mary saw each other some and apparently corresponded. They also double dated some as can be seen in a few family pictures.

Moved from Pittsylvania to: County, State and Year, or where he Fulton Co., GA between 1860 and 1870
Comments:
1860 census lists the family in Pittsylvania Co., North District, Virginia. The 1870 census shows the family living in Fulton Co., GA. I believe that they moved to GA due to the US Civil War and emancipation of slaves. Unfortunately, the 1860 lists G.W. Hall's occupation as "slave trader" but the 1870 census shows him as a tobacco farmer. Obviously, he needed a new occupation. It is disturbing but it is our nation's history.

Comments:
Thomas S. Brown stated in his Civil War records he was born in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Census records show various ages, but he appears to be born ca 1814.
A marriage record in 1839 shows he was married to Sarah Floyd in Brown Co., IN, Jan. 26, 1839. Sarah died in childbirth. He married Margaret Davis in 1842 in Jackson Co., IN, and she died giving birth to twin girls in 1844.
Thomas moved with the twins to Ozark Co., MO (which later became Douglas Co.) in 1845 and was married to Mary Burden in 1846, Ozark Co. He died in Douglas Co.,MO, in 1896.

Comments:
William is believed to be the grandson of Jacob Chaney, born in 1814 and an unnamed son of Joseph Chaney. One son of Joseph, Rueben, is known, and one of Rueben's sons is named William. But it is the Wiliam Chaney, born in 1780, and who married Mary nee Garrison Chaney that we would like to connect to Joseph with any record known or available to add to the word of a descendant, an aunt of descendent Robert Chaney.

Comments:
Land deed dated, December 14, 1819, Amelia Co, VA, in which George and Nancy Bell sell their land in Amelia County to John Foster. At the time of the sale, George and Nancy are listed "of Pittsylvania" County. Nancy did sign the deed.
[source: Amelia County, VA, Deed Book 25, page 397 (1820)]

George Bell and his family are listed in the 1820 Census for Pittsylvania County, VA.
[source: 1820 VA Census, Pittsylvania County]

George Bell's will (14 Feb 1823) is recorded and probated in Pittsylvania County, VA in 17 Mar 1823. I am still tracing his orphans who were "farmed out" to various families in the county after his death (Nancy appears to have died after the birth of their youngest son in 1821 and before George).

The man named Parker Gee was born June 10, 1753, in Maryland, according to RW pension papers. At some point in time he moved to VA Pittsylvania Co. where he married. He enlisted and was sworn in at Botetourt Co. Court House June 1780, which means he was 27 years old. He served 18 months to Dec. 1781. Except for his military pension claim, he left no record of his life or family except for a son Job. Dead in Henry Co., Indiana 1842, he had never drawn on his pension and his grave is unidentified. In 1818 moved to Marion Co KY, and 1820 was nonresident in census of Madison Co. KY p. 166. He may have been living with son Henry in OH Butler Co. where he became blind circa 1832. Moved to Henry Co. IN. circa 1834-35. Applied for pension 1839 in IN Henry Co. Pension #R3964 VA Line. Pension application said that in 1839 he had been "blind for 7 years past."

Comments:
Anderson Brightwell and Lucy are identified by records held by the Library of Virginia in Richmond. These records validate Lucy as the next of kin of Jesse Brightwell who died at the "Battle of Charleston" while serving in the Revolutionary War. This family appears to originate through Reynolds Brightwell who is believed to be a the progenitor of most of the Brightwell families that emigrated to Pittsylvania County sometime after 1800 from Prince Edwards, Campbell, and Charlotte counties. I am researching these families and therefore visit your site.

Comments:
From Paul R. Coppock's "Mid-South--Vol. III" "Clement McDaniel soon after 1800(Actual date 1804) sold
his plantation in Virginia and his slaves, excepting house servants, and moved with his wife and four unmarried children to Nashville. He brought $50,000 to Nashville and went into the foundry businesss. Ten years later his money was gone and he was too crushed to remain in Nashville. He sold his remaining slaves, except for one man, obtained a flatboat and floated his family and household goods down the Cumberland River." Once on the Mississippi River a storm drove the terrified "floaters" into the Loosa Hatchie River between Memphis and Big Creek where they settled for the rest of their lives (now Shelby Co.) Here the Col. made a come back of sorts. In 1834 he wrote a letter to his daughter Martha McDaniel Douglas "We would like to have all of our children and grandchildren, but one of our chimneys has fallen down, and if the weather should be cold, we have but one to occupy.... and since your mother and I have grown so old and craisy, we should be excused...."
Note: He left Nashville on his Keel boat in 1819 and went to Shelby County.

Request for any information you are willing and able to provide [Bible Records (Family Bibles), Biographies & Family Histories, Cemetery Records, Census Records, Court Records, Deeds & Other Land Transactions, Letters, Marriage Records, Military Records, Miscellaneous Records, Newspaper Articles, Obituaries, Vital Records, Wills, Photos and Scanned Documents] on members of the GRAVELY/GRAVELEY family of Pittsylvania County, VA.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I am researching the GRAVELY/GRAVELY family. I am a descendant of Joseph GRAVELY (about 1744-1844) of Leatherwood (Henry County), VA. A great deal is known about Joseph GRAVELY and his descendants, but he is a genealogy dead end in that the parents of Joseph GRAVELY have not been verified for certain. It is has been reported that the father of Joseph (mentioned above) was James GRAVELY or GRAVELEY (b. aprox. 1718) of Pittsylvania County, VA and that Joseph had three siblings, John, James, and Mary. While this information is a nice lead, I would appreciate as much real concrete information about Joseph GRAVELY, his father James and his siblings John, James, and Mary you might be able to provide or point me towards. I am also interested in more information on the GRAVELY/GRAVELEY individuals listed below, especially Thomas GRAVELY.

I would appreciate any help you are willing to offer. Please send files listed online, if possible, or let me know how I can get them. Thank you in advance.

Sally GRAVELY Parker
Descendant of Joseph GRAVELY of Leatherwood, VA

Moved to Pittsylvania from: County, State and Year Caroline County, Virginia between 1764 and 1767
Moved from Pittsylvania to: County, State and Year, or where he Roane County, Tennessee 1795 to 1803
Comments:
In 1764 Gabriel was in Caroline County, Virginia. By 1767 he and his family were living in Pittsylvania County where he had acquired two hundred acres of land on the Dan River.

His first wife, Mary Durrett, died on 10 Feb 1774. Sometime later in 1774 he married Nancy Payne.

In the 1787 Census he was tabulated with one white male 16-21, two Blacks over 16, two Blacks under 16, five horses, and 17 cattle.

Sometime between 1795 and 1803 this family along with others named Durrett and Rogers and Payne moved to Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee. He owned 400 acres of land where the Clinch and Tennessee Rivers join.
[The Descendants of the Richards Families of Jackson County,
Indiana; Aute Richards; 1961; DAR Library.]

Upon his death in 1814 part of his family left Tennessee for Indiana and lived in or near Jackson County until the time of the Civil War. After that the descendants became widely scattered.

It is believed that Nancy (Payne) Richards died in Tennessee on 23 Jul 1840.

I am trying to identify the parents of Nancy (Payne) Richards and any assistance would be appreciated.

Some of the early Mallicote family moved up to Yorktown and there are Mallicote family items in the DAR Museum located there in the old Customs House. John Mallicoat purchased land in 1772, Land Deed Book 8 Page 411.
He sold his land in Halifax in 1788 (book 15, page 503)to William Oliver.By 1799 John's oldest son James had moved to Grainger County, Tn. Another son, Dedmond, was there by 1807.
