********************************************************************************
Read information below concerning my confidence in this information !!!!
********************************************************************************

---
The information I have on the ??? Watson & Mary ??? family is based on the following:

- See notes for William Watson d. Aug 1851 for ES-3 Equity Court document that names the children of this person. Assumed to be his children based on the daughter Jane Ann Watson and husband John Keyser that are part of the list. Transcription of the document and link to the document itself in notes for William Watson d. Aug 1851.

- Note the transcription notes Mary as the wife of William but the document itself notes her as administrator.

- Frederick County marriage records found to support the marriages of female children noted in ES-3.

- In the 1850 census that lists Mary b 1777 PA, Martha b 1800 MD, William b 1801 MD Mary is the mother of Martha and George (both named in ES-3 and being alive).

---
This is a collection of circumstantial evidence for the possibility that the family in ES-3 are the children of Isaac Watson and Mary Cooper. I do not consider the evidence strong enough nor do I have supporting DNA evidence to include this information in my database.

Sent: Monday, February 19, 2007 11:55 AM To: dlech2 Subject: Re: I found your profile on Ancestry - requesting more information Don,
Sorry to take so long to respond but I was out of town over the weekend. I will be happy to share what information I have, and while I believe it is accurate, most this information comes from my mother's records which did not record sources, especially for immediate family information. Her grandmother (Mary M. Canfield (3 May 1854-13 Mar 1945) was married to Samuel D. Young (6 Mar 1846-8 Jun 1926). Samuel D. was the son of William (b. ca. 1802 VA.) and Sarah (b. ca. 1810 VA.) Young. He had 5 brothers and sisters—Margaret (b. ca. 1834), Archibald (b. ca. 1836), Delila (b. ca. 1838), Francis (b. ca. 1841), and Gulyann (b. ca. 1828). All appear to have been born in Hampshire County, VA and I think there is a reference to the family in the 1850 census. In WV, Hampshire County was broken up into Morgan, Mineral and Hampshire Counties. It appears the family lived in what is now Morgan County close to Beckley Springs, WV. However, most of the family apparently moved around western West Virginia and western Maryland. As for Archibald's wife, my mother's records are clear that the name was Mary Connelly and she also was born in VA.
I'm sure they are related. Good luck and sorry I can't be of more help. If you have anything you think I might be interested in, please forward it.

Hi Patty,

I saw on the web site http://www.rootsweb.com/~pawashin/lookup.html that you are offerring to do lookups in the book "NEWSPAPER ABSTACTS OF ALLEGANY AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES 1811-1815, Family Line Publications, F. Edward Wright ". I would greatly appreciate of you could check for a James Clark who lived near or in Cumberland Maryland and according to Revolutionary War pension records, may have died 10 June 1815. He married a Barbara on 25 December 1784 according to the same pension records.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and trouble,

The article in The American Genealogist Vol 68 [1993], pages 24-28 titles "George1 and John1 Lewis of Brenchley, Kent, England, and Scituate, Massachusetts" by Robert S. Wakefield pretty much proves this incorrect.

Plus is should be noted that the first born female was named Mary, the given name of the mother in Robert S. Wakefield's article. Although it should also be noted a later daughter was names Sarah.

I went with the data of Robert S. Wakefield.

14 "New Jersey in 1793 : an abstract and index to the 1793 militia census of the state of New Jersey" by James S. Norton can be found at https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/245004?availability=Family%20History%20Library

Some have assumed this reference includes information on Thomas Ross being in the Cape May County Militia in 1793.

But I noted the following from the book. A militia list for Cape May County was not available. The county tax ratable list was used as a subsitute but one can't be sure it would have matched a militia list. The following entry is found:

1793 county tax ratable
Cape May - Lower Township
Thomas Ross

Since Thomas Ross would have been 38 in 1793 I choose not to note him as being in a peace time militia since he would have been rather old for that and with a family.

He is also not listed in "Official register of the officers and men of New Jersey in the revolutionary war
by New Jersey". Adjutant-General's Office; Stryker, William Scudder, 1838-1900

But he would have been prime age (20 to 28) and unmarried to have fought in the Revolutionary War (1775–1783). I just have not found any evidence yet.

Dear Mr. Lechthaler,
I think I may have solved your dead-ends. I hope.

[Metz info cut out of this copy of email]

Now on to ....
Dead End #2 The Friedel's
Since we know that John C. Friedel Jr. father is John C. Sr. I searched mostly for the mom. I found a land record that shows John C. Friedel Jr. as the administrator of the estate of Magdalena Friedel and concerns a property on Durham Street. Okay, so with this I was able to get a death year and found her on the mdvitalrec.net web site. Once again, her death certificate should have all the information needed to get her maiden name and where she is buried. (There is also a case in the orphan's court record at the Archives concerning her property. It may have more information on the family and her husband) .That will lead us to John. Sr.'s death date and obituary. Magdalena is listed as a widow when she dies in 1891 and also as a widow when she buys the home on Durham Street in 1890. I have attached to this e-mail her death notices from the Sun and the one in the German newspaper the Deutsche Correspondent.
The source information for both is as follows:
Baltimore Sun May 23, 1891 page4
Deutsche Correspondent May 23, 1891 page 2 . This one is in german but the translation is exactly how the Baltimore Sun reads.


The last time I see John Friedel Sr. listed in the Baltimore City directories was around 1886. So I once again checked the mdvitalrec.net and found a John C. Friedel dying on January 29, 1888 certificate # a5942. WOOHOO....but it wasn't John Sr. It was John C. Friedel III. John Jr. and Kate had a son who died at the age of 5 weeks. Attached is his death notice from the Deutsche Correspondent January 30, 1888 page 2.
The translation is as follows.
On Saturday, the 29 of January at 12:50 in the morning (or a.m.), John C. Friedel, 5 weeks old, young son of Kate and John C. Friedel Jr.

I have sent copies of the death notices and land records to you. If you have any questions give me a call and when you get the cemetery information I suggest calling them to get plot information. I'm sure you'll find other family members.
Sincerely,

The best I can make out is Magdalena (or Magdaline) Phabematerin/Phalematerin (now don't laugh) . I know the last name is way off, but that's the best I can guess. He has no brothers or sisters that I know of. I have no clue if his parents married in their native Germany or after immigration, but they may have married about 1857 (John C.

Any brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, etc listed in an obit will give me another straw to grasp. A marriage listing would be even better, although I have no specific dates when either set of parents may have married.

I realize it's not practical to handle all the requests you must continually get and I feel guilty asking this as is.

18 "Souvenir of Loretto Centenary, October 10, 1899: 1799-1899" By Ferdinand Kittell

Page 396 excerpt:
JOSEPH NULL was born in a house near Emmitsburg, Md., on the line between that State and Pennsylvania, January 1, 1811, of John Null and Mary Koontz.

As of 9/20/21 at
https://books.google.com/books?id=jBUVAAAAYAAJ

Early February 2022 I spent a sizable amount of time trying to verify Mary's surname and determine her parents. The Koontz surname is based solely on the "Souvenir of Loretto Centenary" document. I could not find any supporting source or DNA evidence to corroborate the surname.

If you have any additional information or insight, please contact me.

John Null and Mary Koontz 2nd and 3rd children were named William and Catherine. William Coons in a 1798 will stated his wife was Catherine, son Abraham. Germans tended to name children after
mother and father's parents. Base on this I check land records for William Coons.

21 ** Note **

Their appears to be quite a bit of controversy about from where William Ripley and family originated. Briefly, one camp says William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England. The other camp that says William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire, England. Both provide births of children John, Abraham, Sarah, and Mary. Quite a bit of information exists supporting both camps. I cannot conclusively conclude which camp is correct. But based on the following, I have used the William born 1588 in Wramplingham , Norfolk, England case.

case William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England
(information from online LDS Wymondham, Norfolk church books I have found):
Mary 6 Sep 1616
John 1 Sep 1821
Abraham 9 May 1924
Sarah 28 Oct 1627
[no other children births in Wymondham, Norfolk church book]

case William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire, England
(information from http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~westxan/4122.html):
Mary Ripley b: 10 Jan 1639/40 in Moulton Near Spalding, Lincoln, England
John Ripley b: BEF. 14 Aug 1621 in Moulton Near Spalding, Lincoln, England (bapt October 9, 1625)
Abraham Ripley b: 9 May 1624 in Ingleby Greenhow, Yorkshire, England
Sarah Ripley b: 25 Oct 1627 in Moulton Near Spalding, Lincoln, England
[five other children noted born in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire]

I find it too coincidental to be true that two Abraham's were born on the exact same date in two different places. Ditto Sarah in two places within 3 days of the same date. This leads me to believe that one of these cases data is incorrect or mistaken. It's just too coincidental. I have seen the Wymondham, Norfolk church book myself, the other case I have not attempted to verify the church books cited as sources.

I also find the William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire, England case a bit unlikely since it notes children born in Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln, York, York, Lincoln, York, Lincoln, Lincoln counties in date of birth order. Back in those days I find the continual movement unlikely.

I have also seen Wramplingham church records for the birth of William in 1588 as well as his brothers and sisters. Again, I have not attempted to verify the church records for the William was born 14 May 1598 in Ripon, Yorkshire.

From Hingham MA records we know about William Ripley children John, Sarah and Abraham. We know when they married and/or had children, therefore we can get a gut feel for about when they were born based on average age at marriage. We also know the families on-board the Diligent were said to come from the Hingham Norfolk area. William Ripley was said to have come from Wymondham, Norfolk. Hingham, Wramplingham, and Wymondham are all within a few miles of each other.

Their are Norfolk England and Hingham MA marriages between the Ripley families and the families of Beal and Hobart. The families of Beal and Hobart also appear to have also come from the Hingham, Wramplingham, and Wymondham Norfolk England area. From my experience it is quite common for families from the old country to stick together and inter-marry in the new country. This also lends credibility to the William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England case.

In the Wymondham, Norfolk parish records baptism are found for a Mary, John, Abraham, and Sarah, all children of William Ripley. The baptism dates jive pretty well against the approximate birth dates based on Hingham MA marriage and children baptism dates. Therefore, my best guess is these children and the William in Wymondham, Norfolk who was their father comprise the same family that came to Hingham MA on board the Diligent. The great fire of Jun 1615 in Wymondham, Norfolk destroyed earlier parish record making tracking further back in time for Wymondham (i.e. William Ripley marriage(s)) conjecture.

Based on the above, I have used the William was born 1588 in Wramplingham, Norfolk, England case. I do think their were multiple William Ripley's and their also may very well be a connection back to Ripon, Yorkshire.

These two webpages pretty much sum up the two cases mentioned above (countless others can be found in case these two disappear):

The town of Hingham was dubbed "Bare Cove" by the first colonizing English in 1633, but two years later was incorporated as a town under the name "Hingham".[5] The land on which Hingham was settled was deeded to the English by the Wampanoag sachem Wompatuck in 1655.[6] The town was within Suffolk County from its founding in 1643 until 1793; Norfolk County from 1793 to 1803; and Plymouth County from 1803 to the present.

A 21 Apr 1821 baptism record has Margaretha born to Bernhard Eberle and Margaretha Emmert.

A 1834 confirmation record has Margaretha born 21 Apr 1821, daughter of Bernhard Eberle and Margaretha Emmert.

A 26 Oct 1839 marriage record has Anna Margaretha marrying Konrad Zimmermann with a Bernhard Eberle as a witness. Marriage records in this time frame make no direct mention of the father's name.

So based on this I assumed her given name was Anna Margaretha.

Confusion also exist as to her mothers name.

A 8 Dec 1819 baptism record has Elisabetha born to Bernhard Eberle and Maria Magdalena Emmert with Peter Emmert and Elisabetha his sister as witnesses.

A 21 Apr 1821 baptism record has Margaretha born to Bernhard Eberle and Margaretha Emmert.

A 21 Apr 1822 marriage record has Bernhard son of George Eberle marrying Maria Magdalena daughter of Peter Emmer and Elisabetha Zimmermann.

A 13 ([no month noted]Apr or May or Jun) 1827 death record has Magdalena Emmert wife of
Bernhard Eberle age 42y 5m minus 2d (born abt Nov 1784 to Jan 1785)

A 31 Dec 1837 marriage record for Konrad Emmer son of deceased Magdalena Emmers former wife of Bernhard Eberle.

The only other Eberle in Elmstein in this time frame was Johannes Eberle and he had no children with a name containing Margaretha.

The 1819 baptism has no mention of illegitimacy. Konrads marriage record also reflects that he was born about 1816. Yet a marriage record does not show up unto 1822.

The 1821 baptism record is the only reference I found to Bernhard's wife being named Margaretha. So, I have assumed the use of the name Margaretha for Bernhard's wife is an error in the 21 Apr 1821 baptism. I also assumed the confirmation record that is also in error was a result of copying data from the baptism record.

Since Bernhard was a Catholic it's possible he married and had children baptized elsewhere.

As of 6/9/20 I could find no way to cross check if the given name Anna Margaretha or the mother's name Maria Magdalena are correct assumptions. If these assumptions are incorrect, obviously the information on her ancestors is in error also.
---
She must have died after 21 Sep 1850 when she signed a land deed (see Conrad Zimmerman notes for deed details) and 8 Dec 1855 when Conrad married Catharine Nyhart. The 1850 deed was on Ohio it seems shortly after that they must have moved to Indiana. No 1850 census was found so I have her dying in either Ohio or Indiana.

Many have Isabella the daughter of David Kincaid and Winnifred Hobson. Much has been written on this. The website http://myplace.frontier.com/~skincaid2/kincaidchapter.htm as of 2/26/21 notes the following:
"David Kincaid was omnipresent in Augusta and Albemarle counties and seems to be associated with all the other early Kincaids in these counties but his exact relationship to them is unknown. David left a will in Washington County, Virginia probated in 1779. In the will his wife Winifred is named along with his children John, Hobson, Burroughs, and Joseph. Jean and Isabella have long been thought to be his daughters but they are not listed in his will and there is no proof of his parentage. Later in this chapter we will examine records for his son John."

Other references:

Without any evidence I consider the parentage of Isabella tradition/conjecture and therefore did not investigate David & Winifred any further. It may very well be valid, but I require some sort of proof.
---
Some have James dying in Abbeville Co., SC after he moved there with his son James.

Some have James moving to Granville Co. SC in 1767.

The last record I found for James & Isabella was in Augusta Co. VA on 21 Jun 1763.

I was unable to establish what became of James & Isabella. I could find no evidence of them in SC or in VA after 1763.

Note that in "15 generations of Whipples - descendants of Matthew Whipple of Ipswich, Massachusetts, abt. 1590-1647" Volume II page G31 and G73 a daughter of Henry Short and Sarah Whipple named Anna (not Hannah) is noted as being born 28 Mar 1682. Anna is noted as marrying Thomas Hale Jr.

Obviously this conflicts with what is in "A genealogical dictionary of the first settlers of New England showing three generations of those who came before May, 1692, on the basis of Farmer's Register" by James Savage, Volume IV, Page 89. The information from this source is:

Henry, Newbury, son of the preceding freeman 1677, married 30 Mar. 1674, Sarah Whipple, had Mary, born 22 Aug. 1675; Sarah, 1 Aug. 1677 ; John, 14 Dec. 1679, died young; Han­nah, 28 Mar. 1682 ; John, again, 13 Oct. 1685; Matthew, 14 Mar. 1688, Harvard College 1707 ; Lydia, 7 May 1690, died next yr. ; and his wife died 28 Dec. 1691. He married 11 May 1692, Ann, daughter of Henry Sewall, widow of William Longfellow, and had Jane, 4 Mar. 1693; Samuel, 18 Nov. 1694, died young; Mehitable, 12 Jan. 1696; Samuel, again, 16 Feb. 1698, died soon ; Samuel, again, 22 Feb. 1699 ; Hannah, 2 Mar. 1701, died soon; Joseph, 8 Apr. 1702 ; died 23 Oct. 1706.

The Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts record has
Annah, d. Henry [and Sarah. S. dup.], Mar. 28, 1682.
Could be misspelled Anna or Hannah.

After an analysis of my DNA matches for both Short and Whipple I found no matches to Henry Short, John Whipple, or Matthew Whipple. Thanks to the books "15 generations of Whipples..." many people have Whipple information in their trees and if I had a valid match, many Whipple names in this line would show up. But they do not.

Prior to 2/2/21 I assumed the Hannah Short/Henry Short connection was valid and entered as much data as I could find on the Short line. I done some work on the Whipple line but as of 2./2/21 I discontinued further research on the Whipple line since I now doubt that connection. Links and saved pages from the book "15 generations of Whipples..." were saved.

As of 2/2/21 I have unlinked Hannah Short from Henry Short RIN 1661 and Sarah Whipple RIN 1162. I have also removed the 28 Mar 1682 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts birth date, although I did leave the sources for the information. I also left all the ancestors of Henry Short and Sarah Whipple I had previously enter although they will no longer be linked to Hannah Short.

I went with surname Huber. Most everybody else has Hoover. Documents seem to go both ways.

My use of Huber if based on the following:
- The estate records (admin bond, inventory) have the name Jacob Huber, administrator Elizabeth Huber, Ephriam Ridge, and Cornelius Ridge posting bond..
- The German Reformed Church, Frederick, Frederick Co marriage record has Jacob Hoober. The computer listing of marriage for this church notes Hoober as Huber. Other Huber's are in the same listing. No Hoovers appear until the 1850's. Reference computer listing as of 5/26/22 at
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS4D-19GV-D?i=757&cat=284743
I could not find an online copy of the actual German Reformed Church to check for myself.
- Apr 1811 birth of daughter Elisabeth at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Creagerstown notes his name as Huber.
- 1815 baptism of daughter to Jacob and Rebecca Schneider lists Jacob and Elisabeth Huber as sponsors.
---
Since the Jacob Huber & Besty Ridge marriage took place at German Reformed Church in Frederick I checked baptism and marrage listings for other Huber's that might be connected to Jacob on the assumption that possibly Jacob and Besty married in Jacobs home church.

I found a John Huber who married a Christina Kern in 2 Mar 1761 and had a son Jacob in 11 Feb 1777. Ref:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS4D-19GV-D?i=757&cat=284743
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS3Y-H96H-8?i=1221&cat=7166

Then I started looking for John Huber in MD grantor land records with a wife named Christina.

2/20/18: An ancestry DNA kit for "Patricia Allen" matches me, Gregory Miller (Emma Kirby/Miller grandson), and Holly Miller (Emma Kirby/Miller great-granddaughter).

- I assumed the Mary Wales that died in 1833 to be another daughter since it appears wife Mary appears in c1840.
- I assumed first wife Mary Wales died sometime between 13 Apr 1840 baptism of Elizabeth Jane Wales and marriage to next wife Mary in 1843.

Buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery St. Michaels are:
Wales, John H. b. 1816 d. 1906
Wales, Irene b. 1823 d. 1898 w/o John H.

Wales, John H. W. b. 1861 d. 1947 s/o John H.
Wales, Mary A. b. 1866 d. 1961 w/o John H. W.

Wales, Martha P. b. 1856 d. 1857

It is not know if any of these people connect to the same Wales line but noted here for reference.
-----
See 4/9/15 email concerning Elizabeth Wales, who married a Bailey, whose child had a Wesley Wales as a wittness to their marriage. Census records show Wesley living with Ann whose 11 Jul 1871 Baltimore Sun obit lists Wesley as her son. An obit for Wesley was never found. How Wesley connects remains unknown. I doubt he's a son of Joseph base on his mother being lised as Ann. It's possible Joseph is an Uncle.

Searched unsuccessfully 1900 (last census he appears) to 1910 (wife only appears) for Wesley Wales death in:
Could no find obit in Baltimore sun searching in many different ways 1900-1910.

I found no conclusive way to link the William Barnes who was said to be married to Cecelia Vickers to any William Barnes found in Georgia in that time frame. Although quite a few possibilites were noted. William Barnes were noted in Hancock, Twiggs, Baldwin, and Lemar counties.

The most interesting was the William Barnes in Hancock Co. (2nd Co. north of Wilkinson). Included in the notes here is a family bible for Lewis Barnes who has a son William born in 1778 and married in 1805, plausible dates for our William. No concrete information was found to connect Lewis Barnes family to our William although the Vickers surname is also present in Hancock Co.

The William Barnes in Twiggs Co. (1st Co. southwest of Wilkinson) is also interesting although records seem to indicate that the wife of William was named Rebecca. It's know however if this William may have been the father of another William.

It's possible Elvira died between 20 Aug 1856 when she applied for letters of administartion on William A. Cowan estate and 23 Sep 1856 when Jeptha V. Cowan applied for letters of administration on William A. Cowan estate. It's also possible she was unable or just did not want to perform the duty. On 3 Feb 1857 guardisnship was granted for one of her children and it can be assumed she had died by then.

If these cemeteries still exists or if they are just hortorical reminants is unknown. But if Cowan burial location is to be found these locations need to be found and checked. Looking at satellite images some locations obviously still do have cemeteries that can be seen.

"Index to first land lottery for Baldwin, Wilkinson , and Wayne counties 1805" FHL 514009 contained the following Cowan surnames:

Wayne Co. District #1
206 - William Cowan - Oglethorpe - Elijah H Burrett(Burritt?) - 6 Dec 1828

I have assumed the William A. Cowan is this person. I've found no evidence of him ever residing in Wayne Co. I assume he either sold the property or just never took advantage of the grant.

I found references to the 1st Regiment Georgia Militia being commanded by a Col. Grover Harris.
I also found reference to their being a Jeptha Vining Harris being a General of the Georgia militia.

So far I have not proved a connection of William A. Cowan to either commander. One could theorize that Jeptha Vining Cowan is named after Jeptha Vining Harris. No occurnaces of the given name Jeptha were found in any of William A. Cowans grandchildren.

Hopefully a future release onlline of War of 1812 pension records will shed some light on William A. Cowan's military service. 8/12/14 update: No William Cowan found in Georgia, North Carolina, or South Carolina 1812 pension files.

Transcription by Jeannie (Powell) Marczak received 5/9/2012 from “History of the Georgia Militia, 1783-1861” by Gordon Burns Smith

from Chapter 12 Georgia Militia Generals, H-Z, page 302:

JEPTHA VINING HARRIS (1782-1856) was born on 27 April 1782 as the son of Walton Harris and his wife Rebecca (Lanier) Harris. Jeptha graduated in the first class of the University of Georgia, 1804. Jeptha V. Harris lived in Clarke, Elbert, and Morgan Counties. He practiced law in the Northern Judicial Circuit, where lie became "a distinguished lawyer of the Georgia bar." He represented Elbert County in the Georgia House of Representatives, 1811, 1812. The governor comminissioned him brigadier general of the 1st Brigade of the 4th Division in the place of Allen Daniel, promoted, on 3 December 1812. Harris represented Elbert County in the Georgia Senate, 1825. He was promoted to major general of the 4th Division on 9 November 1829, resigning his commission in 1845. General Harris died in Cobb County on 29 June 1856, and was buried in Old Madison Cemetery in Madison, Georgia. (Ref 20 - see \Cowan\Cowan Library Research0001.pdf file)

Of General Harris, Garnett Andrews said "he was a fine old gentleman with a fine family, of great wealth and greater hospitality." General Harris was the source of Garnett Andrews' information about George Cook and the origins of the Troup and Clark factions that dominated Georgia politics for so many years.

Harris married Sarah I Hunt (15 June 1789-1871), daughter of Richardson Hunt (1762-1813), on 11 October 1804. Six of the Harris' sons graduated from the University of Georgia. One of them, William Littleton Harris (1807-1868), graduated from the University of Georgia in 1825. He became a lawyer, and about 1836 moved from Washington, Georgia, to Columbus, Mississippi. He served as judge of the Circuit Court, and subsequently became a justice on the Mississippi Supreme Court, despite the fact that he "shunned politics." He also declined an appointment to the United States Supreme Court. He died in Memphis, Tennessee, on 26 November 1868.

from Volume I Campaigns and Generals page 393:
1st Brigade, 4th Division, G.M. (Elbert, Hart. Lincoln, and Wilkes Counties)
Commanders:
BG Jeptha Vining Harris, comm. 1812, prom. 1829

Another Jeptha Vining, also a possible source for the Jeptha Vining Cowan:

JEPTHA VINING 1738 - 1797 BAPTIST PREACHER

Jeptha Vining was born in Sutton, MA. in 1738 according to the information that he gave to the Baptist Association. His parents were William Vining and Anne Nichols who was related to the Salem witches. The family went to Onslow Co. NC in 1740 and then onto Anson Co., NC. He got his ordinance to preach in 1761 in Cantony which is in Pitt Co. NC. today and married Amy Miller in 1754 when he was 1754 at age 16 maybe in Marlboro, SC. Children were Thomas, Ann, Joshua, John, Mary, Matthew, Uriah, Abigail & Jane. Jeptha began setting up churches in SC and then went into Warren and surrounding counties to institute churches. His last church that he was the pastor of was Long Creek Baptist Church in Warrenton, Warren Co., GA. His first wife had died by this time and he married a widow Mary Thomas. He is
buried in the church cemetery and his headstone has finally been found. The front has washed away with time but on the back is carved, JV. His eldest son Thomas went onto Limestone Co., Al. and died there. The rest of the children scattered to LA., MS. or stayed in GA.

From "A Delusion Of Satan: The Full Story Of The Salem Witch Trials" by Frances Hill, pages 202

The three accused found guilty were Elizabeth Johnson of Andover, Mary Post of Rowley and Sarah Wardwell, wife of Samuel Wardwell, who had been hanged in September. According to Calef the first two of these women were "the most senseless and ignorant creatures that could be found." Elizabeth Johnson's grandfather was no less forth­right in his view of his granddaughter's mental abilities, saying she was "simplish at the best." Johnson had made a rambling confession at her examination in August and perhaps repeated it now. Sarah Wardwell probably also repeated her former confession since her husband had been hanged as a result of going back on his. The jury concluded that if anyone was guilty of witchcraft these three were. And, after all, if no one was guilty of witchcraft, why were these trials even taking place? Stoughton signed a warrant for the three women's "speedy execu­tion."

It is ironic that at this late date those who claimed innocence were acquitted while confessors were condemned. Clearly Stoughton had nothing on principle against sending confessing witches to their deaths. It had been a matter of expediency to save them.

Happily, however, these three did not die. Sir William reprieved them. He also reprieved five other accused witches sentenced earlier by the Court of Oyer and Terminer, having been "informed by the King's Attorney General" that the evidence against all these people was no different from that against many acquitted. When word of this was brought to the Superior Court, now sitting at Charlestown, William Stoughton was "enraged and filled with passionate anger" and walked off the bench. He shouted furiously, "We were in a way to have cleared the land. . . . who it is that obstructs the course of justice I know not; the Lord be merciful to the country."

This data has not been independently verified. The source document link is noted below.

German Calvary Chapman #875 (2.John 2, 1.John 1) b. Au g 13 1 817, Cabell Co ., VA , m. Feb . 15 1838, in Cabell
Co., VA /WV, Catherine Hamrick #876, b. Jul 12 1820, d. Apr 17 1883. German died Jul 5 1892, buried: Simmons Cem., Hancock Co. IN.

We have no proof or strong evidence that German was a child in this family. He was at the right place at the right
time to fit (circumstances) but the 1820 census does not support the idea.

The following is from Virginia Small- written in 1995 & 1997 : "According to a record from an old family Bible,
my maternal great grandfather (German or Jerman) Calvary Chapman (B. 13 Aug. 1 817 Cabell Co ., W. Virginia
married Catherine Hamrick ( B. 1 2 Ju ly 18 20) (am not sure she was from Cabell Co ., but she was from the area, I'm told). They were married in Cabel Co., W. Virginia 15 February 1838 by David Harbour, Sr. according to a copy of
their wedding license. I am quite certain that German Chapman was from Milton, W. Virginia area. I have been
told that perhap s his father's name w as John. T here is a record from the book, "Chapman , Jolly, Rayburn" that there
was a John Chapman w ho married a Molly in approximately 1808 with Children, Polly, Phebe, Martha, Cynthia,
Tazewell and Minta. These records were taken from "All Births in Virginia 8-6-1850

In 1845 German and Catherine left Cabell Co., W. Va. via the Ohio River to Cincinnati and then to Cleveland,
Indiana (near Greenfield, Indiana) where they both lived until their deaths. German died 5-July 1892 and Catherine
died 12 A pril 1883 ."

Gräfenhausen church book checked for death record 1750 to 1809 with none found.

Children married and died in Gräfenhausen after death of Franz Christoph Schumacher so my guess would be Justina stayed.in Gräfenhausen also although I found no records to prove that.

We have all of the cemetery records back to its origination in 1872, but I could only find a record of two Buker family members being buried in Riverview:

BUKER, Betty L. - buried 11 June 1999 in Section D, Lot 266, Position 12
BUKER, Baby Boy - buried 5 September 1952 in Section D, Lot 266, Position 1

The Friends of Historic Riverview Cemetery took ownership and control of the cemetery on 30 January 2009. We are a non-profit organization and do all of the work as volunteers. If you are so inclined, we request donations for doing look-ups. Please visit our web site for further information and our mailing address - www.riverviewcem.com
