Coleby R. Jackson

M, b. circa 1765, d. after 1835
  • Last Edited: 17 May 2019
  • Name Variation: Colby R. Jackson
  • (Child) Birth*: circa 1765
  • Name Variation: 1791; Coalby Jackson
  • Note*: 31 October 1791; Greene Co., Georgia; A Coalby Jackson signed one of multiple petitions, 31 Oct 1791, to Governor Edward Telfair from citizens of the Lower Battalion in Greene County stating the recommendations, by Colo. Henry Karr for field officers a....1
  • Marriage*: say 1795; Principal=Charity (?)
  • 1810 Census*: 6 August 1810; Haywood Co., North Carolina; Since Samuel W. Jackson was born in NC, this was probably his father. This Coleby may have moved back to NC after having been in Georgia earlier. The 1810 census for Georgia has not survived, so a complete analysis is difficult.

    Hayward County was formed from Buncombe County shortly before the 1810 census, so Buncombe County records need to be checked for Coleby or Coalby Jackson.2,3
  • (father of bride) Marriage: 19 December 1822; Jasper Co., Georgia; Bride=Susannah Jackson, Groom=Allen Cook
  • 1830 Census*: 1 June 1830; Meriwether Co., Georgia4
  • Land Lottery*: 1832; Tuggle's District, Meriwether Co., Georgia; Coleby R. Jackson, while a resident of Tuggle's District in Meriwether Co., won Lot 122 in the 24th District of the 2nd Section of Cherokee, now Gilmer Co. GA. This was in the 1832 Cherokee Land Lottery. Coleby had not claimed his grant, by paying the $18 fee, as of Jan 1st, 1838.
  • (Deceased) Death*: after 1835; Meriwether Co., Georgia
  • Biography*: Strong circumstantial evidence suggests that Coleby Jackson's parents were Peter Jackson and Susannah Randle.
    .
    Coleby R. Jackson was born in the 1760's according to the 1830 census, and probably in NC. The "R." initial in his name may have stood for "Rolin," rather than "Randle." Coleby probably had a brother named Randle. But his grandson Lee Roy named a son Brooks Rolin Jackson, so Rolin was probably an old Jackson family name. Brooks later changed his name to Robert Brooks Jackson. An early Rolin Jackson in Georgia appears to be a relative.
    .
    Coleby first appears in the 1793 Tax Digest of Greene Co. GA, along with Randolph, Peter, and Reuben Jackson. In 1796, the four were in Kimbrough's District in Greene Co., and a second Peter appears on the list as well.
    .
    In 1797, the same five men were listed in Tigner's District. A second Coleby appears on the list, thought to be the one who moved to Jasper Co. GA.
    .
    At least one Coleby was still in Greene Co. in 1803, to register for the 1805 Land Lottery. His two draws were both "blank." Neither Coleby is listed in Greene Co. deed records as either a buyer or a seller.
    .
    The whereabouts of Coleby R. between 1805 and 1827 is a mystery. He may have been the Coleby who witnessed a deed in Morgan Co. GA in 1814, of Rolin Jackson to Azariah Bailey (Morgan DB E-230).
    .
    In 1827 a Malinda Jackson married Littleton Grimsley in Pike Co. GA. She was the daughter of Coleby R. Jackson (Grimsley Workbook, by Robert E. Parkin of St. Louis). The couple soon moved to Meriwether Co. GA.
    .
    In 1829 Woody Jackson married Eliza Jackson in Pike Co., and in 1830 he was living near Coleby R. Jackson in Meriwether Co. A Woody Jackson was in Greene Co. GA in 1827, winning Lot 231 in the 9th District of Meriwether Co. in the Land Lottery. He sold the lot in 1831 (Meriwether DB B-235).
    .
    No record of Coleby R. Jackson has been found in Pike Co. But in 1830 he was on the Meriwether Co. census, aged 60-70, with wife aged 50-60. Also in the home was another male 20-30 and a female 15-20. These last two may have been Colley or Coleby Jackson and wife Malinda Henley, who had married in Meriwether Co. in 1829.
    .
    There is no evidence that either of these Colebys owned land in Meriwether Co. But in 1832 Coleby R. won Lot 122 in the 24th District of Gilmer Co. GA in the 1832 Land Lottery.
    .
    There is no record of Coleby R. Jackson after January 1835, when he and Samuel W. Jackson witnessed a deed between James Hately and John Malone (Meriwether DB D-76). .
    .
    Coleby's ancestry is currently (June 2018) not entirely proven, but this writer feels confidant that he was the son of Peter Jackson and Susannah Randle. These Jackson and Randle lines can be traced back several generations in Virginia.3
  • (Referenced Name) Biography: 23 December 2018; This Coleby was from Jasper County, Georgia, and was probably the son of Coleby R. Jackson, born 1765, since that Coleby was apparently in Hayward County, North Carolina in the 1810 census, and this Coleby claims to have been born in North Carolina on the 1860 census. Coleby himself took the 1860 census, so his entry must be correct.; Principal=Coalby R. Jackson3
  • Research Note*: 20 April 2019; Descendants of Coleby Jackson of Orange County, NC, and of Madison County, AL, are showing up as relatives of the descendants of the early Coleby Jackson of Georgia, according to Ancestry.com's Thrulines. The two men may have been first cousins. If so, then the Coleby Jackson of Madison and Orange was a grandson of William Jackson and Lucia Tatum.; Principal=Coleby Jackson of Orange Co. NC3

    As of June 2019, descendants of John Malone have autosomal DNA connections with multiple descendants of three of the children of Robert Malone and Mary Hayes: Charles Malone, Stephen Malone, and Elizabeth (Malone) Drew.

    Further research is needed.
    The currently unknown connection to Robert and Mary (Hayes) Malone is through DNA only.; related?=Charles Malone, related?=Stephen Malone, related?=Elizabeth Malone6
  • Biography*: 17 June 2019; John Malone was born Sep 14, 1778, according to a family Bible published in 1846. This Bible was in the possession of Mrs. Lem Owens of Malone, AL, in 1953, and as of the late 1970's it was still in the family in Randolph County, Alabama. Images of it have been published on the internet by this author, such as on lwgriffin.com, and on familysearch.org, under John's son, Ledford Bayles Malone.

    The 1850 census gives his place of birth as Virginia. John's son Spencer also mentioned that his father, as best he knew, was born in Virginia, on his 1880 census report.

    Whereever he might have been born, he appears to have grown up in Rutherford Co. NC, and married Gracie Eaves there in 1800. Gracie was the daughter of Burrell Eaves and Issa Malone.

    John and Gracie lived in Union District SC for a few years and at least two of their children were born there, Spencer,in 1812, and Robert Lewis.

    By 1817 or so, the family had moved to Jasper Co. GA. In January 1818, John bought half of Lot 74 in the 17th District, with Benjamin Malone as witness (Jasper Co. DB 8-357).

    John was on the 1820 census in Jasper adjacent to Samuel W. Jackson, his son-in-law.

    In December 1825 he bought additional land from Benjamin Cook (DB A-447).

    In 1827, John won Lot 130 in District 4 of Coweta Co. in the Land Lottery.

    By 1830, he had moved to Butts Co. GA, and in March 1830 he was administrator of the estate of John Malone, Jr., thought to be his son (Butts Co. DB B-211). John Sr. was on the 1830 census in Butts Co.

    By 1833, John had moved to Meriwether Co. GA. In October 1833, he bought the west half of Lot 9 in the 8th District of Meriwether Co. from Samuel W. Jackson, with Jones Malone among the witnesses (Meriwether DB C-286).

    In 1835, he bought an additional 50 acres of an adjacent lot (DB D-76). Later that same year he sold this 50 acres (DB D-281).

    And in 1850 he sold the land he had purchased in 1833 to James Moreland (DB S-113).

    John and Gracie were on the 1840 and 1850 censuses in Meriwether Co. She apparently died in the 1850's. John is alone on the 1860 census there, aged 82. No estate records have been found for John.

    John and Gracie are thought to have had at least seven sons and a daughter. Of these, Lavinia, Spencer, Robert Lewis, and Ledford Bayles are known from family sources. Jones lived adjacent to John in both Jasper and Meriwether, witnessed deeds, etc., and so is thought to have been a son. John Jr.'s death was mentioned in the Ledford B. Malone family Bible, and John Malone Sr. was the administrator of his estate in Butts Co. Burwell's death was also mentioned in the L. B. Malone Bible, and he was living in Jasper in 1827 in the same militia district as John Sr., and was also living near Jones Malone in 1830 Pike Co. Also, Gracie's father's name was Burwell. William B. Malone's death is mentioned in the L. B. Malone Bible, and there is no further information on him. John and his sons ran a blacksmith's shop in Greenville. John's son Spencer was also a blacksmith, according to later census records.6

Gracie Eaves

F, b. 10 November 1780, d. circa 1855
  • Last Edited: 5 May 2019
  • Biography*: Gracie Eaves was born November 10, 1780, according to a Bible in the possession of Mrs. Lem Owens (formerly Dora Malone, granddaughter of John Bennett Malone) of Malone, AL, in 1953. Gracie was born in Rutherford County, NC, and was married there in 1800 to John Malone, who was perhaps her cousin. She died in Meriwether County, GA in the 1850's. Gracie was probably the daughter of Burrell Eaves.

Robert Malone

M, b. say 1756
  • Last Edited: 19 Jun 2019
  • (Child) Birth*: say 1756; Virginia
  • 1790 Census*: 2 August 1790; Rutherford Co., North Carolina1
  • Biography*: 18 June 2019; Robert Malone appears in Rutherford County, NC records as early as 1779, when he was granted 100 acres on Ball's Branch of Cathey's Creek, adjacent to William Gilbert (Rutherford DB A-D, p.204, 13 Aug 1779).

    He appears on the 1782 Tax Digest of Rutherford County, with 100 acres, one horse, and six cattle.

    In Oct 1783, Thomas Rowland was granted 100 acres on Ball's Branch, Cathey's Creek, of Second Broad River, adjacent to John Malone's entry. (Rutherford DB A-D, p. 225). I currently have no record of John Malone's grant, however, he and Robert may have been brothers.

    Graves Eaves also lived in this area. His son Burrell had married Izza Malone here in 1778. Izza was perhaps the daughter of the John Malone just mentioned. In Dec 1785, Graves Eaves, of Rutherford County, sold 109 acres to Abel Lewis, on the east side of the Second Broad River, near Cathey's line, as granted to Eaves in Feb 1775. Burrell Eaves and Thomas Davis were the witnesses (Rutherford DB A-D, p.472).

    Robert Malone was on the 1790 census in Rutherford County, with one son under age 16. In 1790, John Malone would have been age 12, and was probably Robert's son.

    In Jan 1792, Robert bought another 100 acres on Cathey's Creek, adjacent to his previous land. The deed was recorded in Dec 1794 (Rutherford DB L, p.317).

    This Robert Malone was not Robert, the son of the Robert Malone who died in 1791 in Northampton County, NC. According to that 1791 will, that son Robert was under the age of 21 in 1791. See the Robert Malone who died in 1791, and his will, elsewhere in this file.

    However, there does appear to be a close relationship between this Robert and Robert 1791, based on autosomal DNA relationships between descendants of this Robert's probable son John (born 1778) and descendants of three of the children of Robert (died 1791).2

Graves Eaves II

M, b. circa 1724, d. 1812
  • Last Edited: 7 May 2018
  • Biography*: Graves Eaves II was the son of Graves Eaves I. He was born in Northumberland County, VA around 1720. By 1727, his family had moved to Brunswick Co., VA.
    .
    In November 1747, Graves and his brother Thomas sold their father's 100 acre plantation on the north side of the Meherrin River, which they had inherited the year before, to John Freeman for £30. Witnesses included James Clack and Peter Tatum. Leanna (or Eleanor), wife of Thomas, and Sarah, wife of Graves, both relinquished their dower rights in this land (Brunswick County, VA DB 3-365).
    .
    Some have thought that Graves Eaves married a Nancy Yancy about 1750. Note however that his wife's name was Sarah in 1747. No proof of a Yancy marriage has been found, and the origin of this idea is unclear.
    .
    Graves probably moved from Brunswick County, VA to North Carolina shortly after 1747, as there is no further record of him in Brunswick or in nearby Virginia counties.
    .
    There is no evidence that he ever lived in Granville County, NC, although his son William's father-in- law, Andrew Hampton, had come to Rutherford County from there.
    .
    Graves probably moved into the area that became Rutherford County at a very early date, and simply neglected to take out a patent on his land until much later. His first patent, in February 1775, was for 109 acres in Tryon County on the east side of the Second Broad River and included "Eaves's own improvement," suggesting he had been there for a while. The land was adjacent to land of Robeson and Cathey (Patent Book 26, #9058). Tryon County was formed in 1768 from Mecklenburg County, which was formed in 1762 from Anson County.
    .
    A Graves Eaves is mentioned in at least nine deeds in Rutherford County. There may have been more than one man by this name. Note that the Graves Eaves born around 1720 would have been between 60 and 80 years old during the period covered by these deeds. So the deeds probably refer to Graves III, his son, rather than to him .
    .
    In 1783, a Graves Eaves bought 200 acres on both sides of Puzzle Creek from Thomas Roberson (DB A-D, p.107). In 1785, he sold 109 acres "near Roberson" to Abel Lewis, with Burrell Eaves and Thomas Davis as witnesses (DB A-D, p.472).
    .
    In 1787, he was granted 100 acres on Puzzle Creek, "beginning at his own corner" (DB M-Q, p.265).
    .
    In 1792, he sold 75 acres of the land he had purchased in 1783 to Davis Eaves, "adjoining Thomas Davis and Bartlett Eaves" (DB 12-14, p.213).
    .
    In 1795, he was granted 100 acres "on his own spring branch" (DB M-Q, p.501).
    .
    In 1798, he sold another 75 acres of the 1783 purchase to William Baxter, "adjoining Davis Eaves" (DB 12-14, p.295).
    .
    In 1799, Thomas Bryant sold ten acres to Davis Eaves, "on Puzzle Creek... beginning on Burrell Eaves line, to Graves Eaves line...." (DB 15-17, p.77). Later in 1799, Graves sold 100 acres on his spring branch to Sterling Price. Witnesses were Davis and Thomas Eaves, and Abel Lewis (DB 20-21, p.74).
    .
    A Graves Eaves was on the 1800 census in Rutherford County, but was not there in 1810. Presumably Graves II died before 1810, and probably decades earlier.
    .
    A deed made in 1817 mentions "Graves Eaves' corner" (DB 32, p.14) but this does not necessarily imply that a Graves was living at that time, as such language was often copied from earlier deeds.
    .
    No estate records have been found, and the names of Graves' children have been the subject of much speculation. That Bartlett Eaves was a son of Graves is said to be proven by a Rutherford County court document dated 1785 which states that Graves Eaves went to court to prove that his son Bartley was under the age of 21 and therefore his tax money should be returned to him (Notes from the Eaves Family National Reunion, 1980).
    .
    That William and Burrell Eaves were brothers of Bartlett is proven by a letter written in 1893 by William's grandson, Noah Hampton Eaves. He states that William "had two brothers, Bartlett and Burrell, one sister who died from a snake bite when about 18 years old."

  • Biography*: Burrell Eaves was the son of Graves Eaves II. He born in VA or NC in the early 1750's. His family was in Tryon County, NC by 1775.
    .
    A Burrell Evans was a private during the Revolutionary War, having enlisted July 20, 1777 for a nine month period. He was in Montford's Company, and the 10th Regiment, under Col. Abraham Shepard. That Burrell Evans was not the same man as Burrell Eaves is proven by the fact that this Burrell Evan's pay voucher after the War was issued in Halifax Fiscal District, while Burrell Eaves lived in Morgan Fiscal District (which included Rutherford County). (See Roster of Soldiers From North Carolina in the American Revolution.) Burrell Evans was probably the same man who was in Early County, GA in 1827 and listed there as a "Revolutionary Soldier" on the Land Lottery.
    .
    The Revolutionary Service of Burrell Eaves is undocumented, but the fact that he was entitled to four draws in the 1832 Georgia Land Lottery indicates that he was a Revolutionary War veteran.
    .
    In 1778, Burrell married Izza Malone in Tryon County. Graves and William Eaves were sureties, and Jonathan Hampton was a witness. (Jonathan was the eldest son of Col. Andrew Hampton.) In 1779, this area became Rutherford County.
    .
    In 1785, Burrell witnessed a deed, Graves Eaves to Abel Lewis (DB A-D:472). In 1787, he bought 150 acres from the State of North Carolina on Allen's Creek of the Second Broad River, adjacent to Thomas Roberson (DB 25:280).
    .
    In 1790, a Burrell "Evins" was listed in the Fishing Creek District of Granville County on the census. In February 1796 this Burrell "Eavins" married Mary Mitchell, with William Roberson as bondsman and Richard Taylor as witness (Granville Marriages 1753-1868 by Brent Holcombe). It is not clear whether this was Burrell Eaves, or Burrell Evans.
    .
    The evidence in favor of this being Burrell Eaves is: 1) William Roberson was bondsman, and Burrell Eaves had connections to the Roberson family, as is shown in Rutherford County, NC deeds, 2) Burrell's brother, William Eaves, had lived in Granville County, 3) Burrell Eaves does not appear on the 1790 census in Rutherford County.
    .
    The evidence against this being Burrell Eaves is 1) the surname is spelled Evins or Evans, not Eaves, 2) Granville County was some distance from Rutherford County, and Burrell Eaves was already in Rutherford County prior to 1790.
    .
    In 1796, Burrell Eaves bought 100 acres in Rutherford County from the state of NC (DB 15-17:263) adjacent to his father's land and "crossing Puzzle Creek." (Quicksand in the creek made it a "puzzle" to early settlers who wondered if their horses could cross it.) Puzzle Creek flows SW into the Second Broad River, where the land of Graves Eaves lay.
    .
    In December 1797, he bought 100 acres from the State of NC adjacent to his own land and that of James Baber, based on a plat of July 1796 (DB 25:279).
    .
    In 1798 Burrell is mentioned again in a deed, as witness to the marking of a boundary line, rather than as a witness to the deed itself. Graves Eaves was selling 75 acres to William Baxter, "adjoining Davis Eaves" (DB 12-14:295). Later that year William Eaves sold to Hunter and Love, merchants, 100 acres "near Burrell Eaves' improvement" (DB 12-14:226).
    .
    In 1799, Thomas Bryant sold 10 acres to Davis Eaves on Puzzle Creek, which bordered the land of Burrell Eaves and Graves Eaves (DB 15-17:77).
    .
    Burrell was on the 1800 census of Rutherford County. His household included one daughter aged 16-26, thought to be Gracie, who married John Malone later that Fall. She was born in 1780. Then there were three children born after 1790, two daughters and a son. The son, Ledford Bayles, was born in 1796. This pattern would suggest either that several children born in the 1780's had died young, or that Burrell's wife had died shortly after 1780, and he had remarried in the 1790's. In any case he and his wife were both over 45 years old in 1800, and only one other child was born to the couple, in 1801. This was a son, Lewis T. Eaves. Burrell is mentioned as a juror in Rutherford County court records in 1798, 1805, and 1809.
    .
    By 1810, Burrell had one daughter still at home, aged 10-16, a son 10-16, and a son under ten. The daughter may have been the Nancy Eaves who married Leroy Duck in 1818 in Rutherford County. Leroy Duck was in Campbell County, GA, in 1830, as was Burrell. Burrell's other daughter may have been Patsy Eaves, who married James Wallace in 1808.
    .
    In December 1815, Burrell exchanged 50 acres of land with James Baber. William Baber and Joseph Allen were witnesses (DB 29-31:217, DB 32-33:397). Eaves sold another 10 acres to Baber that month as well (DB 32-33:399).
    .
    In 1820 Burrell Eaves was still in Rutherford County, with his wife and two sons, now aged 16-26, still at home. (And Burrell Evans was apparently in Wilkinson County, GA that year.) But in October 1820 he sold the 180 acres "where he lived" to his brother Andrew Eaves for $600. This land was on Allen's Creek adjacent to the land of James Babers and James Fortenberry. Witnesses were a Mr. Alexander, and George McKinney (DB 34:3).
    .
    Burrell Eaves probably left Rutherford County that Fall or Winter. Burrell appears to have bought more land in Rutherford County than he sold. He may have given land to his daughters when they married without recording the transactions.
    .
    Burrell's whereabouts during the 1820's is not known, but he eventually settled in Campbell County, GA., which was created in 1828. He appears on the 1830 census there, aged 70-80, with wife aged 60-70. One son aged 20-30 was living at home.
    .
    Burrell was living in Stanfield's District of Campbell County in 1832, and won three 40 acre lots in the Gold Lottery that year, one in Cherokee County, one in Cobb County, and one in Cass County, GA. He also won one 160 acre lot in the 1832 Land Lottery. The only individuals entitled to four draws in this lottery were Revolutionary War veterans. No later record of Burrell has been found. He did not leave an estate in Campbell County, and neither he nor his wife appear on the 1840 census in GA.

Graves Eaves

M, b. circa 1675
  • Last Edited: 10 Jan 2009
  • (Child) Birth*: circa 1675
  • (Groom) Marriage*: circa 1718; Bride=(?) Matthews
  • Biography*: Graves Eaves I, the son of William Eaves, was born about 1674, probably in Northumberland Co. VA. When his father died there in 1688, Graves selected Isaac Loftin as his guardian, probably an uncle (Brunswick County Order Book 4, p.596). At some unknown date he married a Miss Matthews, daughter of Goodlove Matthews. This is proven by a deed of gift from Goodlove Matthews to her son-in-law, Graves Eaves. By 1728, he was living in Brunswick County, VA, as he received that year a grant of land, 440 acres on the north side of the Meherrin River. Graves left a will in Brunswick County in 1746 leaving everything to his sons, Thomas and Graves. The sons sold this land in 1747.

    The following is from Linda Ball:

    Graves Eaves Sr was born in Northumberland Virginia in about 1675.

    7-20-1692: Graves Eaves "orphet of William Eves, late of Northumberland Co, VA has this day in Northumberland Co Court made choyes of Isaac Loftin to be his guardian." Witnesses: Richare Royer, William Evans and ?? Sanders. (VA Northumberland Co Court pg 596) Isaac Loftin is the husband of
    Graves sister.

    He removed to Brunswick, VA by Sept 28, 1728 when Graves received a County Land Grant of 440
    acres new land from King George III. (Brunswick Co VA Patent Book 18 pg 85)

    Calvaliers and Pioneers of VA Book 14 pg 388:
    Graves Eaves granted "440 acres new land Brunswick Co, VA North side of Maherrin River"; a little
    below the mouth of Reedy Creek on Sept 28, 1728 (date: pg 85 of VA History Magazine)

    2-6-1735/6 Brunswick Co, VA Court ordered Valentine Bell to pay Graves Eaves for 11 days atendence
    as witness in a suit between him and Charles Kimball and to pay Elizabeth Eaves, wife of Graves, 6 days attendance as witness to the same trial. (Brunswick Co, VA Court Book 1 pg 138)

    10-7-1736: Brunswick Co, VA Road Orders Index (1732-1746)
    "John Jackson appointed overseer instead of John Douglass from Reedy Creek to Maherrin and Graves Eaves, William Eaves, and David Bails be added to former order." (this would be Graves Sr and his son, William Eaves. Graves Jr was not old enough to oversee any roads)

    "Graves Eaves of Brunswick County to William Eaves of same. 6 August 1740. £15 VA. 120 acres which was part of a 440 acre patent to sd Graves Eaves on the north side of Maherrin River, joining sd Graves Eaves.

    At the time of his death (or will) he owned 100 acres of "plantation land on the North Side of Meherrin River" which he willed to his sons, Graves II and Thomas Eaves.

    From the Pennington Research Association:

    Thomas, 1796, Rowan Co., NC
    The date and place of birth of Thomas Pennington is unknown. The earliest proven document on Thomas Pennington is a marriage bond from Rowan County, North Carolina dated March 29, 1796. A copy of this Marriage Bond was obtained from the North Carolina State Archives and is in the possession of Group 29 leader. This marriage between Thomas Pennington and Lethe Bell is also listed in a book entitled Marriages of Rowan County, North Carolina 1753-1868, compiled by Brent H. Holcomb published by Baltimore Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1981 on Page 3l7.

    The children of Thomas and Leatha Beall Pennington are as follows:

    William Beall Pennington, b. 1797 m. Mary Phillips
    Ann Nancy Pennington b. 1798 m. John Phillips
    Samuel Pennington b. 1800 m. Elizabeth Shy
    Thomas Pennington b. 1802 m. Eleanor Phillips

    Thaddeus Pennington b. 1807 m. Marian Wade
    Frederick Will Pennington b. 1808 m. Elizabeth Watts
    Ephraim Pennington b. 1809 m. Mary Ann Phillips
    By 1800 Thomas and Leatha Pennington had migrated to Warren Co. Georgia where sons Samuel and Thomas were born. In 18l3 Thomas Pennington owned property in Warren Co., Ga. (Source: Book C, Pg. 579 Warren County, Ga. property records) Also in 1813 Georgia Military Records 1779-1839, Ga. Archives, lists Thomas Pennington as a soldier in an Indian Party with the 38th Regiment of the Georgia Militia, Jasper County, GA.
    In 1815 Property Deeds-Deed Book 7, Pg. 358 show property owned by Thomas in Shadydale, Jasper County, GA.

    Thomas died July 4, 1825. His estate was probated in Jasper County Probate Court in Monticello, Ga. Sept. 5, 1825-Min. Book A, Page 81 and 94.

    In our research we have been more successful in researching the Beall family and through that have found some clues that suggest further possible links with Penningtons.

    Leatha Beall’s father, Thaddeus Beall and his wife Amelia Beall were born in Prince George’s Co., Maryland before the formation of Frederick County in 1748. They married in Frederick County and lived as “Planters” in that part of Frederick county which became Montgomery County in 1776. Thaddeus Beall was a member of the Continental Army and was a Brig. Major in the Revolutionary War; By November 20, 1779, a Montgomery County deed recites them to be of “Guilford County, N.C.

    Land Grant records of North Carolina include applications executed by Thaddeus Beall in 1779 for 6 tracts of land, granted to him in the period November 1784 to May 1787 totaling 2,000 acres. These tracts were in Guilford County. The last tract of this property was sold in 1791 and Thaddeus and Amelia moved to Georgia. Sometime around 1794, Thaddeus moved his family into unsettled, virgin country then in Greene County, Georgia. (later formed Hancock County) where the family resided at Thaddeus’ death in 1808 (Source of Beall family information: Alexander Beall-1649-1744 of Maryland, one Line of Descent in America, by William Hunter McLean-Published by the Fort Worth Genealogical Society, Fort Worth, Texas.) This book also mentions that Thomas Pennington was with the Bealls in Guilford County, N.C. Thomas also owned land adjoining Thaddeus Beall in Georgia.

    Further possible links to Penningtons and Bealls is the fact that Leatha’s grandfather, Samuel Beall in 1760 was part owner of an iron works complex in Western Maryland near Antietam called Frederick Forge. (Source: Beall family web site and Register of Maryland's Heraldic Families credits Samuel Beall, Jr. with creation of “The first Iron Forge in Maryland, if not in the United States. It cast the first Cannon for the Continental Army”.) A book entitled Shenandoah Valley Pioneers and their Descendants by Cartmell states that just 28 miles from Winchester, Virginia, Isaac Pennington owned an iron works on the Capon River and advertised bar iron for sale at $100.00 per ton, delivered at any point within 60 miles from his forge. Just southwest of Frederick Forge and North of Winchester was Coxson’s Rest, present day Brunswick, Md. where Abraham Pennington, in the 1700s was an Indian trader from Cecil County where he built his cabin. Further west on the Potomac was the plantation of John Beall, grandfather of Thaddeus Beall. (Source: Book entitled Pioneers of the Old Monocacy)

    It would be reasonable to assume that Thomas Pennington migrated from Maryland or Virginia and possibly had a connection with the Abraham and Isaac Penningtons mentioned above and further research might possibly connect Groups 4 and 8.

    Group 29 is a very large group with many descendants in Georgia through the l800s with migrations into Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Texas. There were several Methodist ministers in this family group and the name Ephriam is found often. It has also been speculated that Thomas may have been called Ephriam or it may have been a middle name for him. We are looking at the possibility that Thomas’ father could have been named William, based on the fact that William signed the marriage bond for his marriage to Leatha and also based on the custom of naming the first son after the father's father.

    We welcome coordination and sharing of research with all Georgia and Carolina researchers. Group 8 Penningtons and Group 11 Penningtons as well as Group 4 Penningtons have all seemed to be in some of the same places as our group. Any further comments or resources that any one has that would help us in achieving the goal of finding Thomas's parentage and connecting with established groups in PRA would be appreciated.
