Looking for more information on William Spears and family from Granville Co. Spears, William State : NC, County : Granville Co., Year : 1769 Spears, William State : NC, County : Granville Co., Location : Epping Forrest Terr., Year : 1786, Page # : 001 I am trying to connect him to the my SC William Spears who was in NC before the Rev War. William served in the Dragoons in Captain Samuel Ashe's 1st Troop Command at least in the months of April, may and June 1778 and also in the 2nd Troop Command by Captain Cosmo Mediece. May 12, 1780, William was paid for "Militia Duty in Brandon's Regiment since the Fall of Charleston Anderson's Return. Amount of Fifteen pounds, Eleven Shillings and Five Pence, Sterling". On April, 21, 1782, the estate of William Spears gave three 5 year old steers valued at fifteen pounds each, to the Detachment of General Marion's Brigade under the Command of Lieut. Colonel Peter Storry in Georgetown. On April 27, 1785, the Commissioners of the Treasury paid the estate of William Spears, 25 pounds and Six Pence Sterling for the beef used in 1782 and 60 days Militia Duty. His executers, administrators or assigns were entitled to receive from the Treasury Office One Pound Fifteen Shilllings and One Farthing on demand as one year's interest on the principal sum of 25 pounds and six pence on April 27, 1787. I believe that William's father may be a William also and that they may have lived in NC before the Rev. War and settled in SC after the war. William SPEARS II was born Bef. 1744 (maybe in NC) and d: 1832 Union District, SC. He married Frances ??, b: Bef. 1744 and d: Bef. 1830.

I am beginning research on my paternal grandfather's line. I seem to have a difficult time getting started. His name was LOGAN WILLIAMS HALL and grew up in the "Knapp of reeds" area and owned quite a bit of land in what is now known as "BUTNER", which was taken from him in large part from the government During the war. The "UMSTEAD STATE HOSPITAL", which was named for an uncle now sits on part of that land. He became a mail carrier and moved to STEM around 1915 or so and about that same time married my grandmother Sallie Batts from Wilson County. He had two sisters ELLA and LESSIE who also lived out their lives in STEM and never married. He had two children Mary and Lassiter. I would appreciate any clues as to where the line goes back from "KNAPP OF REEDS" back.

Posted On:Monday, March 2, 1998 at 03:58

OWEN(S), WOOD(S) I'm searching for information on WILLIAM J. OWEN(S) b about 1827 NC (possibly Granville Co.). He served in 8th Reg't, Co. D, NC Troops, and died 21 Jan 1863. I'm trying to find anything I can about his family. I don't know his parent's names. He married Sallie Ann WOOD(S) 11 Mar 1848 in Granville Co. Their 4 children were SUSAN, MARTHA, CARRIE HEPSIBAH, and WILLIE (female). A JOHN OWEN listed with them in 1860 may have been a son but apparently he died by 1870. In 1850 they were in the Fishing Creek District. In 1860 they were living in Knap of Reeds District with the post office listed as Wallers. In 1870 they lived in the Tally Ho district. Seems as Owen was a large name at one time but don't know how these are connected or where their family may be buried. I know this family apparently weren't educated as none of them knew how to read or write. Any help in locating any leads to find information on them (church records, cemetary, etc.) is very much appreciated.

I am interested in any information on Jesse MILLER, listed in the 1755 census as a resident of Granville County, NC. I believe him to be the father of Jesse MILLER who moved to Georgia and fought in the Revolutionary War out of Richmond County. The Jesse who moved to Georgia was married to Martha MCNAIR(E) and she may have been born in Granville County. Any information on McNaire's of that period would also be appreciated.

I am researching the name of LT ANTHONY METCALF b. in VA approx. 1720-30. His militia "mustering out" record (which I have a copy of) shows that he was discharged in 1754 in Granville Co. (Vol. XXII, T.P., pp 370,372,373 of the Colonial and State Records of NC.) He served under the command of Col. William Eaton and Captain Richard Coleman's Company. I can't find a copy of his Rev. War papers, tho. In Vol. IX, p 119, f.1; Anthony Metcalfe, Entry #28 (Rev. Army Accounts) shows he was paid 10 pounds by David Miller (Bundle no. 8. He did serve in the Rev. War (because I have a copy of his youngest son, William, who states in his pension application that his father was dead at the time of the application, also one brother, and that the other two were still in NC (Rutherford Co.). His known sons names were Warner, Danza and William. My ancestor which I am trying to hook to Lt. Anthony is Anthony Martin b. Rutherford Co. NC who moved to AR in 1838 and had 12 children here - I live in Ft. Smith, AR. Anthony Martin's children were: William Metcalf b. 1764 in VA Warner b. 1790 Wm Calloway b. 1792 Anthony Martin b. 1795 (my ancestor from Franklin Co.

This Leonard West was definitely born in Granville County, and it is believed the older siblings, except for Amos, were born there as well. Amos West was born in Greensprings, Louisa County, Virginia. I am trying to determine who his parents were, but I am having little success with this. The extent of my knowledge is that the father was an Unknown West man and an Isabel_________? This Isabel was believed to be a member of a wealthy and aristocratic family. The parents of Amos and Leonard died young, and they and their siblings were raised by the John and Lucy FIKE family of Granville County and Orange County, North Carolina. Leonard married Phoebe MORGAN of Surry County, North Carolina and then moved to the Sumner County, Tennessee area. His children were Amos West, William West, Settle West, and Fielding West. Amos married Frances HERNDON of Chatham County, North Carolina. They too moved to Sumner County, TN and eventually Logan County, KY. Amos and Frances' children are as follows: Isabella West, Polly West, Agnes West, James West, Leonard West, and Richard West b. 1806 d. 1841.
