Page 33, No. 248: Dr. Chas. F. Nassau resides 1515 Wallace 
street, Philadelphia, instead of Germantown. 

Page 117, No. 161: Mary Jane Williamson, usually known as 
Miss Jennie, died in Lebanon, Tenn., July 2nd, 1912. 
She was a woman of noble character and a consistent 
member of the Presbyterian church. 

Page 124, No. 63: James Marshall Cloyd married a Miss L. F. 
Sharp, near Nashville, Tenn., and removed to Harde- 
man County, Tennessee, where he died in 1839, and his 
wife died soon after. He left four children, all of whom 
died without issue. 

The assumption that Francis Marion Cloyd, No. 229, 
was a son of James Marshall Cloyd, is therefore er- 
roneous. In support of the above statement the follow- 
ing letter is presented: 

Halls, Tenn., Jan. 22, 1913. 

A. D. Cloyd, M. D., 
Omaha, Nebr. 

Dear Sir: 

I am a grandson of John Cloyd mentioned on page 120 of 
your book. I was born in 1844. My mother's name was Martha 
Spencer Cloyd and not Amelia, as you have it. She married Joseph 
Plelding Sharp, my father, in Fayette County, Tennessee, in 1836, 
and had four boys and one girl. Fannie, the daughter, married 
John M. McFadden and resides in Memphis. The sons were named 
Rufus Burton, John Cloyd, James Trice and Joseph Spencer. They 
are all dead except myself. 

In regard to my great-uncle, James Marshall Cloyd and his 
family, I can give you the following: 

James Marshall Cloyd married my father's sister. Miss L. F. 
Sharp. She died soon after his death In 1839. I remember of my 
father's oldest sister telling me in 1869 of their death and that she 
lost her first husband about the same time with the same disease. 
The fourth child mentioned in the letter of great-grand-father, 
David Cloyd, on page 108, a baby girl, died at a very early age. I 
knew the other three children well from 1855 to 1865'. They were 
Malissa, Ezeklel and James. My father raised Ezeklel In part. 
He was a doctor and died in Little Rock, leaving a large estate but 
no children. James, the younger boy, was a farmer and died at 
Augusta, Ark., about 1870, and Malissa died at the same place 
about 187^. James and Malissa both married Raineys and neither 
left any children. Yours sincerely, 

Jos. S. Sharp.

The collection of the information in this book was the re- 
sult of circumstances. Like the majority of individuals the 
compiler had no thought of or care for his ancestry until one day 
in 1891, he received a letter from Dr. Thos. Cloyd Craig of Eas- 
ton, Kans., making inquiries about the family name, Dr. Craig 
having seen the writer's name in some Medical Journal. In a very 
short time a similar letter was received from Dr. W. H. Long of 
Haddonfield, N. J. Following the correspondence with these 
two gentlemen an interest in family history was aroused and the 
correspondence gradually extended to other parties and to other 
branches of the family. 

The gradual unfolding of different lines of the family his- 
tory proved so captivating and alluring that only business cares 
have prevented more extended research. The correspondence 
has been voluminous and has extended over a period of fifteen 
years. Errors there are undoubtedly, but fundamental facts 
have been verified by incontrovertible proof. Government, 
county seat and church records have been carefully examined; 
historical libraries have been visited repeatedly ; every genealog- 
ical work of any bearing has been scanned, and hundreds of let- 
ters have been written in the effort to confirm or secure informa- 
tion. Often times conflicting testimony would be received from 
equally qualified persons, increasing and making more difficult 
the task of securing accurate records. 

To all who have so generously assisted and co-operated with 
me in the preparation of these notes, I wish to express my pro- 
found appreciation. Special mention is due Dr. Thomas Cloyd 
Craig, Easton, Kans., Dr. Wm. S. Long, Haddonfield, N. J., Mrs. 
Ellen (Mendenhall) Beale, Parkersburg, Pa., David Cloyd James, 
Madisonville, Ky., Paul C. Cloyd, Plainfield, N. J., Miss Jennie 
Williamson, Lebanon, Tenn., I. Walter Basye, Bowling Green, 
Mo., Dr. James W. Cloyd, Mossheim, Tenn., and others who 
have assisted in every way possible. 


The collection of the material for this book has been a pleas- 
ure. It has occupied many spare moments. It will prove in- 
teresting to but few, yet it is too valuable to perish with the 
writer. Its publication is undertaken without the hope of finan- 
cial reward. The pleasure it will give a few of those who read 
will be my recompense. If another shall take up the work at 
any point where I have left off, I shall be the more abundantly 

In writing the history of the Cloyd family in America an 
effort has been made to harmonize facts with traditional reports 
but not always with success. That there were three brothers 
who came from Ireland is a tradition common to different 
branches, of the family widely separated. That the original 
immigrants or their ancestors were in the memorable siege of 
Londonderry, England, in 1689, is an equally common tradition. 
It has been impossible, however, to locate the particular ancestor 
who underwent the terrible privations and sufferings that mark 
a religious war which forms one of the worse stains on England's 
history. It has been equally impossible to establish the identity 
of the three brothers, as being the only and original immigrants. 

It has been well established that the family came out from 
Ulster the northernmost province of Ireland in which London- 
derry is situated. It is evident the name is closely associated 
with that of Clyde. Several instances can be adduced where a 
part of a family would retain the original name Clyde and the 
others take the name Cloyd after coming to America. Various 
claims have been advanced in reference to the original name 
having been Cloy, 'Cloyd, McCloyd, McLeod, etc., but prepon- 
derance of real evidence indicates that the original name was 

The Cloyd immigrants were pure Scotch though they were 
called Scotch-Irish, a term which had its origin in the fact that 
great colonies of Scotchmen concentrated in Northern Ireland, 
especially in Ulster Province in the 17th Century.

The following is taken from the "History of the Colony and Ancient 
Dominion of Virginia ' ', by Charles Campbell, published by J. B. Lippin- 
cott & Co., Philadelphia, 1860, page 423:— 

' ' During the reign of Queen Elizabeth, the dissatisfied and turbu- 
lent Province of Ulster, in Ireland, suffered pre-eminently the ravages 
of civil war. Quieted for a time by the sword, insurrection again burst 
forth in the second year of James the First, and repeated rebellions 
crushed in 1605, left a large tract of country desolate, and fast declining 
into barbarism. Almost the whole of six counties of Ulster thus, by 
forfeiture, fell into the hands of the king. A London company under his 
auspices, colonized this unhappy district with settlers, partly English, 
principally Scotch — one of the wise and salutary measures of his feeble 
reign. The descendants of these colonists of the plantation of Ulster, as 
it was now called, came to be distinguished by the name of Scotch-Irish. 
Archbishop Usher, who was disposed to reconcile the differences between 
the Presbyterians and Episcopalians, consented to a compromise of them, 
in consequence of which there was no formal separation from the estab- 
lished church. But it was not long before the persecutions of the house of 
Stuart, inflicted by the hands of Strafford and Laud, augumented the 
numbers of the non-conformists, riveted them more closely to their own 
political and religious principles, and compelled them to turn their eyes 
to America as a place of refuge for the oppressed. The civil war of 
England ensuing, they were for a time relieved from this necessity. Their 
unbending opposition to the proceedings of Cromwell drew down upon 
them (1649) the sarcastic denunciation of Milton. (Milton's Prose Works, 
i. 422, 430, 437). 

The persecutions that followed the restoration (1679) and after- 
wards, at length compelled the Scotch-Irish to seek refuge in the New 
World, and many of them came over from the North of Ireland and settled 
in several of the colonies, especially in Pennsylvania. From thence a por- 
tion of them gradually migrated to the western parts of Virginia and 
North Carolina, inhabiting the frontier of civilization, and forming a bar- 
rier between the red men and the whites of the older settlements. The 
Scotch-Irish enjoyed entire freedom of religion, for which they were indebted 
to their remote situation ' '. 

There was an exodus of Scotch-Irish from Pennsylvania to Virginia 
which began about 1732. They were good Presbyterians, and as soon 
as they had built their houses they proceeded to build churches; and the 
"Tuscarora Meeting House", was near Martinsburg, and the "Opeqnon 
Church" a little south of Winchester. The first Presbyterian minister 
settling west of the Blue Ridge was the Rev. John Craig, a native of the 


North of Ireland. In 1840 he became pastor of the ' ' Stone Meeting 
House", afterwards called "Augusta Church", near Staunton, Augusta 
Co., Va., organized in 1738, and settled by the Scotch-Irish from Penn- 
sylvania, (descendants of the Covenanters) a race distinguished for their 
intelligence, energy, morality, and piety. In 1737, John Lewis, a native 
of Dublin Co., Ireland, secured a grant of land covering half of what 
is now Eockbridge Co. To settle up the land he imported upwards of 
one hundred families from the north of Ireland, Scotland, and border 
counties of England. Among the first settlers of this Rockbridge tract 
was Ephrain McDowell, ancestor of Governor James McDowell and Colonel 
William Campbell. 

There was an unprecedented movement of these Scotch-Irish to America 
in the 18th Century. The first great movement occurred during the 
quarter of a century beginning in 1718. Those from Ulster entered America 
by three routes, one at Boston, one on the Delaware river at Philadelphia 
and Newcastle and the third at Charleston, South Carolina. In 1718 five 
shiploads of Scotch-Irish arrived at Boston and settled at Londonderry, 
N. H., to be followed by others, and many of those already in America 
flocked to Londonderry and other towns in New Hampshire. The great 
majority of the immigrants from Ulster landed on the Delaware river, 
either at Lewes or Newcastle, now a part of Delaware, or at Phila- 
delphia. Over 5000 landed at Newcastle in 1729. Few ships bringing 
these people to America kept passenger lists, leaving it impossible to 
definitely determine when any particular individual came over. 

These settlers gave the land office much trouble. They persisted 
in settling on any tract of land that suited them without paying for it. 
They came in response to invitations for settlers and alleged, ' ' it was 
against the laws of God and nature for so much land to be idle while 
so many Christians wanted it to live on and raise their bread ' '. 

After the fertile lands in East Pennsylvania were occupied, those who 
landed on the Delaware river turned their course westward and southward, 
settling in the Cumberland and Shenandoah Valleys of Virginia, about 
1735, and in 1750 into North Carolina and later into Tennessee. Many 
of those who settled in Chester Co., Pa. and Newcastle Co., Delaware, after 
a few years pushed on into the Shenandoah valley. 

The Scotch-Irish immigrants to this country were, generally speak- 
ing, men of splendid physique and marked mental characteristics; qualities 
transmitted to their posterity to a notable degree. They were plain, 
industrious, frugal, devout and religious, possessing high ideals of morality 
and integrity. Their zeal for education caused them to found many 
schools and produce many school masters. Religion, Virtue and Knowledge 
were their three ruling passions. They were forced from Ireland mainly 
on account of their religious views and in gaining religious liberty in 
Amerca they were ready to grant it to others. 

The immigrant ancestors of the Cloyd family were of this class. That 
they came during the flood time of Scotch-Irish immigration is indicated 
by the fact that the earliest records appear during that time. 



The Immigrant Ancestors of the Cloyd family treated of in 
this book are as follows : 

1. James, 1680-1769. 

2. James, 1707-1771, (Section One.) 

3. David, 1710-1792, (Section Two.) 

4. Joseph. 

5. John, d. 1782. 

6. Thomas. 

7. Jane. 

8. John, (Section Three.)

10. William, who enlisted Sept. 9, 1780, at Boston, as a sea- 

man on Ship "Gen. Miflin. " His description was: 
"Age 19 ; complexion light ; residence Massachusetts." 
Nothing more is known of him. 

11. James, of Brentwood, N. H., was a private in Capt. 

Light's Co., Col. Moore's Regt. in the Louisburg Ex- 
pedition in 1745, ("N. H. men at Louisburg 1745;" 
Public Printer Concord, N. H. 1796). Nothing fur- 
ther is known of him. 

12. Elizabeth, who m. Capt. John Templeton in Chester 

Co., Pa., prior to 1746. 

13. Susannah, who m. Thomas Christine, 7-14-1790, at St. 

James Church, Perkiomen, Montgomery Co., Pa., 
1790. Her family connection is not known. 

14. Daniel Clyde, who came from Londonderry, Ireland to 

Londonderry, N. H., in 1722 (Section Five.) 
(a) Michael Clyde and wife, Bridget, of Scottish 
ancestry settled in Northampton Co., Pa., about 1743. 
He d. 1794 in his 84th year, and Bridget d. in 1786, 
in her 66th year. He had two sons James and John 
and it is believed two daughters. James d. 1827, in 
his 78th year, John d. 1826 in his 81st year. 

In the tax list for Allen Township for 1780 are 
found the names of John and James Cloyd. They 
were also members of the Northampton Co. Militia 


for that year. The U. S. Census for 1790 contains 
as heads of families in Allen Township, the names of 
Michael, James and John Cloyd. 

Rev. John C. Clyde, Easton, Pa., author of "Irish 
Settlements," etc., is a descendant of Michael Clyde 
of Northampton Co. 

(b) Thomas Cloyd, a single man resided in Dauphin 
Co., Pa., in 1790 according to the U.S. Census for 
that year. 

Thomas Cloyd was a member of the Middlesex Co., 
N. J., Militia in 1814. 

The records of St. Michaels' Evangelical Church, 
Germantown, Pa., show the marriage of Thomas Cloyd 
and Jesse Wright in 1828. 

(c) Solomon Cloyd was a member of the Cumber- 
land Co., Pa., Militia in 1780, (Pa. Archives, Vol. 6. 
Series 5). He also lived in Augusta Co., Va., ac- 
cording to Judge W. P. Houston, Lexington, Va.

1. JAMES CLOYD, a Scotchman, born in Ireland in 1680 and 
said to have been in the Siege of Derry when nine years old, d.

the young folks, his grandchildren, on wastefulness and tell them 
of the privations endured by the besieged in 1689. Nothing de- 
finite is known about him, but he is supposed to have been the 
father of the following :

Township, Chester Co., Pa., and afterward owned 800 acres. 
He had lived prior to this in what is now Montgomery Co., as 
in the above deed dated 5-2-1752, he is called "Yeoman of Gwyn- 
ned Township, Philadelphia County."

Supplement to Section One 


Contributed by Dr. W. S. Long. 

We now come to another member of the Cloyd family, whose 
parentage is unknown to us and whose relationship to James 
Cloyd, of Whiteland, or to the Virginia family cannot at the 
present time be determined. 

Prior to 1746, Elizabeth Cloyd married John Templeton. 
May 6, 1752, (Deed Book H8, p. 493, Westchester) John Tem- 
pleton of Whiteland, Malster, bought 160 acres in same town- 
ship. It would seem more than a coincidence that within four 
days, he and James Cloyd, undoubtedly a relative of his wife, 
should buy farms in the same neighborhood. John Templeton 
was a successful man of affairs. He was a Captain of Militia 
in the Revolutionary War, enlisting for three months, and re- 
maining nine. His sons, John and Alexander, were also in the 
service, the former was taken with Camp Fever and soon left 
the army, the latter attaining the rank of Captain. 

During the terrible winter at Valley Forge, a company of 
our soldiers was stationed at his farm and received shelter and 
fuel, as to food he had none to give, as the British Army had 
destroyed all his crops. In a list of people who had suffered 
from the depredations of the enemy, his losses are placed at 
291£ 2s. 6d. — more than any other in East Whiteland Town- 

His will dated 1793 was probated 11-24-1795, shows that 
he had m. 2nd, Martha (Jones?) Her will in 1810 named her 
"Brother Abednego Jones."

*William Long was son of John and Martha Long, of Cain Township, 
who came from County Donegal, Ireland, bringing the following certificate, 
which is given entire, on account of its rarity. All good Presbyterian 
families brought such certificates, but having served their purpose they 
were destroyed and very few are discoverable today. 

"Whereas the bearers hereof, John long and his wife, design for 
America, these are to Certify that they have lived in this Congregation 
the most part of their time and still behaved themselves Soberly and now 
at their departure from hence are free of all publick Scandall known to 
us, as witness my hand this 8th day of July, 1736.

Section Two 

Descendants of David Cloyd, Immigrant No. 3 

3. DAVID CLOYD, supposed to have been the son of James, 1, 
of Chester County, Pa., m. Margaret Campbell. The first legal 
record of his residence in America is found in the purchase of a 
tract of land in New Castle County, Pa., now a part of Delaware, 
from Letitia Aubrey, a daughter of Wm. Penn, which he and his 
wife Margaret sold in 1733. It is not known where he lived for 
the next twelve years, but one report has it that he moved to Ver- 
mont where he lived for some time. This same tradition also 
states that there were 3 immigrant brothers who landed in New 
England. That he had brothers in America who did not live in 
Virgina is shown by the fact that one of his sons at a later date 
visited Ms cousins in the north. It is probable that he remained 
in Delaware in accordance with a more authentic tradition as he 
sold his New Castle County home in 1749. 

In 1745 he bought 400 acres from John Buchannan in 
Orange County, Va., in what was afterwards set off to form 
Augusta County, and later in 1770 to form IMontgomery and in 
1776 to form Eockbridge County. 

It is not known when he came to America, nor when he mar- 
ried. One report states that he married in New Jersey and 
another that his oldest son, James, was born in Ireland. 

The following facts gleaned from ' ' Green 's Historic Families 
of Kentucky ' ' bear closely on the time of his coming and the an- 
cestry of his wife : 

' * The Journal of Charles Clinton, the founder of the historic family 
of that name in New York gives an account of some of the families that 
sailed from Ireland on the ' ' George and Ann ' ' and the ' ' John of Dublin ' ' 
on May 9th, 1729, and landed in Pennsylvania, Sept. 4th, 1729. In the 
company were McDowells, Campbells and many other families which set- 
tled first in Pennsylvania and later in Virginia. 

Of this number, Ephraim McDowell and his sons, John and James, 
arranged in the Spring o- 1737 to settle on the famous "Beverly Manor" 


64 The Cloyd Family 

tract in Augusta County, Va., when they met with Benjamin Borden, 
the holder of the famous "Borden Grant". 

Borden was required by the conditions of his grant to locate not less 
than ]00 families on his land and he made the McDowells a tempting 
offer which they accepted. Complying with their agreement with Borden, 
they immediately entered into communication with their kindred, friends 
and co-religionists in Pennsylvania, Ireland and Scotland, soon drawing 
around them other Scotch and Scotch-Irish families among whom were 
the Cloyds and Campbells. 

* John McDowell married Magdelena "Wood, whose mother was a Camp- 
bell, and, as tradition has it, of the noble family of Argyle. Mary, daughter 
of Ephraim married James Greenlee and James McDowell married Mary 
Greenlee, said to have been remotely descended from the Argyle Camp- 

James McDowell left no male issue, John McDowell has two sons, 
Samuel and James, and the latter married Elizabeth Cloyd, daughter of 
David Cloyd of ' ' Beverly Manor ' ', whose wife was Margaret Campbell. ' ' 

In 1764 a party of Indians raided the house of David Cloyd 
near Amsterdam in Botetourt County, killing his wife, Margaret 
Cloyd, and son, John. An account of this massacre is given in 
Waddel's "Annals of Augusta County," written in 1843 by Mrs. 

*DOUGLAS CAMPBELL, of Cherry Valley, N. Y., born Cooperstown, 
N. Y. July 13th, 1840, married Harriet Bowers Paige, Dec. 5th, 1865, 
had children; William Auchinbrecht, Harriet Mumford, Maria Stark- 
weather, and Douglas. He was a distinguished lawyer and served as a 
Major in the Union Army: — 

Son of William Campbell of New York City and Cherry Valley, born 
in Cherry Valley, June 10th, 1806, died Sept. 7th, 1881. He was a dis- 
tinguished lawyer and author, member of Congress and Judge of the 
Supreme Court. Married Maria Starkweather Aug. 13th, 1833. 

Son of JAMES S. CAMPBELL of Cherry Valley, who was born in 
Cherry Valley, Nov. 9th, 1772, and died there March 23rd, 1870. When 
six years old he was taken and kept a prisoner by the Indians for two years. 
He was a farmer and County Judge. Married Sally Elderkin, Dec. lat, 
1800, and had seven sons: — 

Son of SAMUEL CAMPBELL of Cherry Valley, who was born in 
Londonderry, N. H., Apr. 25th, 1738, and died in Cherry Valley, Sept. 
12th, 1824. He served with some distinction in the Revolutionary War, 
married Jane Cannon, a native of Ireland in 1768. 

Son of JAMES CAMPBELL of Londonderry, Ireland, and Lon- 
donderry, N. H., and Cherry Valley, N. Y., who was born in Londonderry, 
Ireland, 1690, died in Cherry Valley, N. Y., came to America in 1728, 
landing in Boston where he remained until 1735, when he removed to 

The Cloyd Family 65 

Letitia Floyd, wife of Gov. Floyd and daughter of Col. Wm. 
Preston : 

"One day in March 1764 when Col. Wm. Preston had gone to Staunton, 
Mrs. Preston early in the morning heard two gim shots in quick suc- 
cession in the direction of David Cloyd 's house half a mile distant. Pre- 
sently Joseph Cloyd rode up on a plow horse and related that the Indians 
had killed his brother John, had shot at him (the powder burning his 
shirt) and having gone to the house had probably killed his mother. 
Mrs. Preston immediately sent a young man to notify the garrison of a 
small fort on Craig 's Creek and then dispatched a white man and two 
negroes to Mr. Cloyd 's. They found Mrs. Cloyd tomahawked in three 
places but still alive, and conscious. She told of the assault by the 
Indians, of their getting drunk, ripping up the feather beds and carrying 
off the money. One of the Indians wiped the blood from her temples with 
a corn cob saying ' Poor old woman. ' She died the next morning. ' ' 

The papers in a law suit in Augusta County in 1766 throw 
some light on the Indian invasion and the robbery of David 
Cloyd 's house. The Indians carried away over 200 pounds 
English money. They were pursued by a party of militia, one of 
them killed on John's Creek, 30 miles or more from the scene of 
the massacre and robbery. One hundred and thirty seven pounds 

Londonderry, N. H., and afterwards to Cherry Valley, N. Y., in 1741, 
married Sarah Simpson ; 

Son of WILLIAM of Cambelltown, Argylshire and Londonderry, 
Ireland, where he lived and died. He was a Colonel in the siege of 
Londonderry and w^as descended from the Campbells of the House of 
Auchinbrecht. (Hughe's American Ancestry, Vol. 8, pp. 156-7.) 

The Campbells were among the early settlers of Eockbridge County, 

Martha Orchard Malatt, Bloomington, 111., gives in Walker 's Genea- 
logy an account of nine children of John and Elizabeth Campbell, three 
of whom came to America, settled in Pennsylvania and later, about 1744, 
near Staunton, Virginia. 

There was a Margaret Campbell who was a resident of Middletown, 
Monmouth Co., New Jersey in 1716. She owed a Merchant John Browne 
an account at his death. 

Col. William Campbell, the hero of the battle of Kings Mountain 
Oct. 7th, 1780, was a native of Augusta County, Va., and moved at an 
early day to Washington County, Va. The sword used by him at the 
battle of Kings Mountain is now (1860) in the possession of his grandson, 
Wm. Campbell Preston of South Carolina. It is now more than two cen- 
turies old and was wielded by the ancestors of Col. Campbell in Scotland 
in the wars of the Pretenders. 

66 The Cloyd Family 

were found on the body of the dead Indian. A dispute arose 
among the militia as to whether the money belonged to them or to 
Cloyd. The money was finally distributed among them, all of 
whom except one James Montgomery returned their share to 
David Cloyd who thereupon paid each of the men five pounds, the 
reward he had offered, and sued Montgomery for the balance, 
thirty one pounds and ten pence. The suit was decided in 
Cloyd 's favor but Montgomery took an appeal to the General 
Court and the final result is not known. 

A negro woman named "Dolly" survived the IMassacre at 
Amsterdam and lived to an old age. ]\Iany have been the stories 
handed down about this old negro, her scalped head and indented 
skull. The "History of Southwest Virginia" by Thomas Bruce, 
published in 1891 gives an incorrect account of the massacre, stat- 
ing that the woman killed was a widow. John who was killed 
then was m.arried and reference is probabl.y made to his widow.

A leather pocket book owned by David Cloyd and brought 
by him from Ireland was in the possession of the family of ]Mrs. 
Sophia Cloyd Swihart of Pueblo County, Ohio, in 1898. 

David Cloyd, and Margaret Campbell had the following, 

Children : 

*4. James, b. 1731; m. Jean, (apparently Jean Lapsley.) 

*5. David, b. ;d. 1789 ; m. Elizabeth Woods. 

*6. Michael, b. 1735 ; d. 1805 ; m. Elizal)eth Nealy. 

*7. John, m. Killed by Indians 1764. Estate adminis- 
tered by brother James. 

*8. Elizabeth, m. 1760 Jas. I\IeDowell. 

9. Margaret, m. John Templeton.

*11. Joseph, b. 6-10-1742 ; m. Mary Gordon. 

68 The Cloyd Family 

Second Generation 

4. JAMES CLOYD, b. 10-29-1731; m. Jean , 2-16-1764, 

may or may not have been the son of David, 3. Rev. G. S. 
Cloyd a descendant of Michael, the third son of David, 3, says 
that Michael was born 1725. If he is correct, the James whose 
family is here given should be regarded as another immigrant 
ancestor, and indeed, his great grandson W. G- Cloyd, Bement, 
111., says he was born in Ireland. 

Recorded facts do not appear to agree with either of these 
gentlemen. That James was from Rockbridge Co., Va., and that 
he married Jean Lapsley, daughter of Joseph Lapsley, Sr., may 
be inferred from the following record: "Deed Book C, page 
232, Lexington, Va. ; John Lapsley of Lincoln Co., Ky., as at- 
torney in fact for James Lapsley and wife Mary, James Cloyd 
and wife Jean, and John Hall and wife Mary and as executor 
of the estate of Joseph Lapsley, Sr., deeds certain lands in Rock- 
briclge Co., Va., near Lexington. The deed is dated Oct. 17, 
1795, and the power of attorney was given Aug. 10, 1790, and 
recorded in Lincoln Co., Ky. " As there is no other record of 
David's son James it is thought safer to assume that the James 
here given was the son of David, 3. 

James Cloyd received from Patrick Henry, Governor of 
Virginia in 1783 a grant to 881 acres of land in Jefferson Co., 
Va., lying on Cloyd 's Creek. (See Grant Book, 0. P. 517, Rich- 
mond Land Office.) 

James and Michael Cloyd were privates in the Augusta Co. 
Militia in 1758. (See Hennings Statutes at Large, Vol. 7.) 

James Cloyd and wife Jean, supposedly Jean Lapsley, had 

the following. 

Children : 

12. Sarah, b. 2-13-1765 ; m. Robinson. 

13. David, b. 11-1-1766. 

14. Joseph, b. 12-11-1768. 

15. Margaret, b. 1-13-1771 ; d. 1773. 

16. Mary, b. 11-20-1773. 

17. Jean, b. 4-4-1776. 

18. Margaret, b. 7-3-1779. 

*19. James, b. 1-9-1782; d. 4-1-1874; m. Mrs. Sarah (Gates) 

The Cloyd Family 69 

5. DAVID CLOYD, the second son of David, 3, m. Elizabeth 
Woods and d. in Augusta County, Va., 1789. His will is on file 
at Lexington. Elizabeth was a dau. of Andrew and Martha 
(Poage) Woods. Martha Poage was b. in Ireland in 1728 and 
came to Va. about 1738. Elizabeth Cloyd d. in 1797. Her will 
is on file at Lexington, Va., proven 2-7-1797. 

Children : 

20. David, d. 1805. 

21. Andrew, d. 1798.

Genealogy gives 69 descendants of Matthew and Mar- 
tha Houston. 

25. Margaret, or ' ' Peggy, ' ' m. Rev. Matthew Houston, cous- 

in to Martha's husband. 

26. Polly. 

27. Betsy. 

28. Cynthia. 

6. MICHAEL CLOYD, the third son of David, 3, d. in 1805. 
There is a question about the date of his birth as here given be- 
ing correct. Rev. G. S. Cloyd, a great grandson says that he was 
born in 1725. As James, 4, who appears to be the oldest son 
was born in 1731, and as Joseph, 11, the youngest child was born 
in 1742, it is presumed that Rev. G. S. Cloyd is in error as to the 
date, and that he must have been born about 1735. Michael, m. 
Elizabeth Nealy, an English-woman and lived at Amsterdam, 
Botetourt Co., Virginia. 

Mitchell Cloyd received a grant to 100 acres of land in 1798 
in Montgomery Co. This is supposed to refer to Michael. 

Children :

37. Jesse. 

70 The Cloyd Family 

7. JOHN CLOYD, the fourth son of David, 3, was killed by 
Indians in 1764, at the time his mother was killed. An inter- 
esting account of this massacre is given by Mrs. Elizabeth Bul- 
lard. She writes in 1892, "Our great great grand mother Cloyd 
was killed by the Indians. I think her maiden name was Camp- 
bell. She lived at Amsterdam in Botetourt Co., and while the 
men were away on a marketing expedition to Richmond the In- 
dians made a raid on the settlement and massacred every thing 
except "Old Dolly," a negro woman, whom they left scalped 
and thought dead. She recovered and lived many years." 
Writing to her brother Dr. Thomas Cloyd Craig, she continues, 
"You have heard our mother speak often of seeing her alive 
when she was a young girl seven or eight years old. Cousin 
Stephen Cloyd, when in here about two years ago on a visit, 
spoke about seeing the same old negro." 

Child : 
38. Joseph, m. Elizabeth or Polly, dau. of Col. Joseph Cloyd, 

8. ELIZABETH CLOYD, oldest dau. of David, 3, m. James 
McDowell, May, 1760. He was the oldest son of John McDowell 
and Magdalena Woods and grandson of Ephraim McDowell and 
Margaret Irvine, immigrants.

10. MARY CLOYD, (b. 3-14-1741; d. 3-5-1827), third dan. of 
David Cloyd, 3, m. in Feb. 1760, James McGavock, of Scotch- 
Irish stock who immigrated to America from Northern Ireland 
in 1754 or '5. The genealogy of this family has been written by 
Rev. Robt. Gray, a Presbyterian minister, of Dublin, Va., and 
will not be repeated here.

Cloyd, 3, m. Mary Gordon. He moved from Rockbridge Co., 
Va., to Montgomery now Pulaski County, and settled on Back 
Creek, the place being still in the possession of his great grand 
children. (1903.) It is related of his wife that she would not 
consent to go to what was then backwoods country unless her 
husband promised that as soon as he was comfortably settled he 
would take the necessary steps to have a Presbyterian Church 
built, in which she might worship after the manner and forms 
she had been accustomed to do. This promise he fulfilled in 
due time, and the New Dublin Church, near Dublin Deport still 
stands as the result. 

72 The Cloyd Family 

In 1774 Joseph Cloyd was honored with a commission as 
Captain of a company of Militia of Fincastle County by Earl' 
Dunmore, Governor of Virginia. In 1779 he was appointed by 
Governor Thomas Jefferson a Major of Militia in Col. Wm. Pres- 
ton's Battalion in Montgomery County. He was in the battles 
of Guilford, Cowpens, and King's Mountain, and was promoted 
Colonel, though he has often been referred to as General.

88. The following account of MAJOR JOSEPH CLOYD 
is taken from Dr. Gray's History of the McGavock Family: 

"JOSEPH CLOYD, son of David and Sarah (McGavoek) Cloyd 
was born in that part of Montgomery which is now Pulaski County, Vir- 
ginia, 5-11-1813, married Mary E. Byars, 5-23-1838, daughter of Col. Wil- 
liam Byars of Washington county, Va. I lived in his house two years, was 
his pastor six years; he aided and befriended me in times of trouble and 
I learned to appreciate his worth as a Christian and a friend, his use- 
fulness as a citizen and as an officer in the church, he being a ruling 
elder in the New Dublin church (Presbyterian) of which I was a pastor 
from 1866 to 1872. Major Cloyd was one of the most experienced and 

82 The Clotd Family 

successful farmers in southwest Virginia and was one of the first to in- 
troduce thorough bred Durham cattle in that section of the state. His 
excellent judgment, large experience and untiring industry procured for 
him the position of Purchasing Agent for the Southwest District, from 
the Confederate Government, with the rank of Major which office he 
ably filled until the close of the war. 

His wife, Mary, in her sphere, was his equal and co-operating together, 
the good estates each inherited have been greatly increased. Not blessed 
with children of their own, the children of others, already largely bene- 
fitted by them, have reason to rise up and call them blessed. 

He died 7-19-1884 and his wife 5-23-1892." 

It was near his home the battle of Cloyd's Mountain was 
fought May 3, 1864, and many of the wounded were cared for 
at his home. He had no children.

cated in private schools at home, completing a thorough course 
in classics and higher mathematics. He was a non-commissioned 
officer in a well drilled military company, the "Pulaski Guards" 
and when the Civil War broke out his company was ordered to 
the front on the 17th day of April, 1861, as Company C, 4th Vir- 
ginia Regiment, Stonewall Brigade. 

At the battle of Winchester or Kernstown on March 23, 1862, 
he was captured and kept a prisoner at Ft. Delaware and was 
exchanged on August 12th. He immediately re-enlisted in a 
cavalry regiment, the 25th Virginia. He was again captured 

90 The Cloyd Family 

in a battle in the mountains of Kentucky on April 12th, 1864, 
but made his escape the same day. When the news of Lee's 
surrender was heard, his brigade was on the march to Lynchburg, 
from southwest A^irginia, the brigade was disbanded at Chris- 
tainsburg, 20 miles from his home at Newbern and the men told 
to go home as the war was over. 

In four more daj^s he would have been four years in the 
Confederate army. On reaching his home the next day, he hitch- 
ed up the horse he had ridden three years in the Cavalry service 
to a plow, with a mule that had belonged to the Confederate 
government, and drove into the l)est field on his father's farm, 
and began farming, with a revolver at his waist and slept in a 
bed in the stable at night to protect his team from thieving sol- 
diers, returning to their homes in the South. 

In the meantime, he studied medicine, with his father as 
preceptor, and finally graduated from the Medical College of 
Virginia and was appointed interne in the City Hospital, after 
a competitive examination. This position he held 18 months. 
He then took over his father's practice at his home, but after 
a year, he left for the west, and located at Easton, Kansas, where 
he has been in continuous practice ever since, except the year 
1891 when he was sent to the legislature, defeating a Populist 
and a Republican, by a big majority. 

November 10th, 1872, he m. i\Iiss Mary Joseph Tearney at 
Leavenworth, Kansas. She was b. at Harper's Ferry, Va., and 
died 2-19-1888, leaving no children. January 7, 1892, he m. 
Elizabeth A. Hines.

Section Three 

Descendants of John Cloyd, Immigrant No. 8 

1. JOHN CLOYD, (Immigrant No. 8,) a Scotchman, came to 
America from the northern part of Ireland and settled in Au- 
gusta County, Va., in 1758. He had been preceded by at least 
one son, Ninian, and was accompanied by a son and daughter, 
John and Mary. He died on or shortly before Nov. 13th, 1759, 
and David Cloyd, (immigrant No. 3) was appointed administra- 
tor of the estate and also guardian of two minor children, John 
and Mary, at their request March 14, 1760. The appraisers of 
the estate made a report in 1764 accounting for personal property 
sold to David's sons James and John, Nov. 29, 1759. 

It is assumed on very strong circumstantial evidence that 
David and John were brothers, altho it is not positively known 
that they were. David had been a resident of Augusta County 
since 1748, having first settled in New Castle County, Pa., now 
Del. in 1732. If John was a younger brother of David, it would- 
be natural for him to locate near his brother David and that his 
son Ninian, a boy of nineteen should seek his uncle when he came 
to America, although he had run away from home as has been 
claimed. Ninian resided for a while in Montgomery Co., Va., 
and when his family was grown up, went with his sons to Mad- 
ison County, Ky., and later to Cumberland, County, Ky., where 
he died. 

It is assumed that Samuel was also a son of John, as he was 
closely associated with Ninian and John in the purchase and own- 
ership of land, they making several joint deeds. Ninian and John 
bought land in 1761 and sold the same in 1763, the record read- 
ing, "Samuel Cloyd and Elizabeth, his wife, and Ninian Cloyd 
and Mary, his wife." John and his wife, Margaret, made their 
first recorded sale of land in 1765. 

Children : 
*2. Ninian, m. Mary Kinkaid. 

3. Samuel, m. Elizabeth . 

*4. John, m. Margaret Scott. 
5. Mary.

Second Generation 

2. NINIAN CLOYD, son of John, 1, when a boy ran away 
from home in Ireland and came to America. His father and the 
rest of the family coming later, about 1758. He bought land in 
Augusta County, Va., in 1761, which he sold in 1765, when his 
wife, Mary, whose maiden name was Kinkaid, and who was born 
in Germany, signed the deed with him. 

Ninian Cloyd in 1785 received a grant to 380 acres of land 
in Montgomery Co., Va., on west side of New River at the mouth 
of Back Creek, consideration 2 pounds and hay for settling and 
adjusting unsettled titles in Washington and Montgomery coun- 
ties. (Grant Book S, p. 343, Richmond Land office.) 

He resided for a time in Montgomery Co., Va., and later 

went with his sons to Madison Co., Ky., and later to Cumberland 

Co., Ky., where he died. He was buried on the homestead of his 

son, Thomas, with whom he spent his last days, near Cloyd 's 

Landing. ^

4. JOHN CLOYD, son of John, 1, probably came to America 
in 1758 with his father, directly to Augusta County, Virginia. 
He was under age when his father died in 1759 and required a 
guardian, choosing David Cloyd, who also administered his 
father's estate. He married Margaret Scott. The records of 
Old Swedes Church, Wilmington, Del., show the marriage of John 
Clyde and Margaret Scott, Aug. 12, 1758. 

Margaret Scott came to America when she was sixteen years 
old, with her uncle, who was captain of a ship, her parents be- 
ing dead. She was originally from Belfast, Ireland, and in- 
herited 76 acres of land, whereon the City of Belfast now stands, 
it being willed to her "as long as wood grew and water run." 
She was thought to have consumption. Her uncle returned to 
Ireland, to dispose of her property, was ship-wrecked and never 
heard from again. Her certificate of church membership in Ire- 

The Cloyd Family 101 

land preserved for many years and in the possession of Rev, 
J. L. Alexander of Nashville, Tenn., in 1862, was dated August 
14th, 1758, and was to "Margaret Scott, alias Clyde." 

It is a tradition that she was in some way related to the 
family of Sir Walter Scott, who had relatives driven by religious 
persecution from Dumfries, Scotland, to the Northern part of 

Mrs. Sarah (Williamson) Lester of Lebanon, Tenn., a great 
great grand daughter of Margaret (Scott) Cloyd, has in her 
possession, the old flax wheel on which Margaret Scott spun 
the thread for the linen of her bridal garments and also for 
her burial clothing. It is treasured by the family as an heirloom. 

John Cloyd bought land in Augusta County, Va., in 1761, 
which he and his wife, Margaret, sold in 1765. In 1789 he re 
ceived a grant to 55 acres of land in IMontgomery Co., Va., on 
Back Creek a branch of New River, consideration 10 shillings 
and a certificate in right of settlement for adjusting claims in 
Washington and Montgomery counties, (Grant Book 8, p. 628, 
Richmond Land office. ) He resided in Virginia until about 1789 
when with his family, some of whom were married, he moved 
to Wilson County, Tenn., then a part of North Carolina. Fam- 
ily traditions tell of the numerous hardships they endured as 
pioneers. His son, Ezekiel, and daughter, Margaret, both of 
whom were married, had preceded him a year or two and settled 
in Wilson County. It is not known when he died. Both he and 
his wife, Margaret (Scott) Cloyd, who died near the close of the 
18th century, are buried on the homestead of his son-in-law, 
John Williamson, which is now in the possession of Miss Jennie 
Williamson, of Lebanon, Tenn., granddaughter of John William- 
son. Her grave is still marked by a limestone rock from which 
the inscriptions have been effaced by time.

I02 The Cloyd Family 

The following letter contains interesting, authentic and val- 
uable information : 

Lebanon, Tenn. July 24th, 1908. 
Mr. D. C. James, 

Madisonville, Ky. 

Dear Sir: — 

On a recent visit to the home of J. W. Williamson, he showed a letter 
you wrote him over two years ago in regard to our common ancestors, 
John and Margaret (Scott) Cloyd. 

Margaret Scott Cloyd is buried on my farm in the old family 
burying ground, where seven generations of our people have been laid 
to rest. I am the youngest child of the youngest son of John and 
Margaret, or Peggy, Williamson, who was a daughter of Margaret Scott 
Cloyd and with whom she lived at the time of her death some time at the 
close of 1700, I do not know the exact date, but my deeds show that 
Capt. John Williamson bought this farm and moved there in 1791. The 
house he built there in 1800 is still being used as a tenement, being 
built of solid cedar logs, two stories and is well preserved. At my 
father's death it fell to me, his youngest daughter. I have never sold 
it, although I do not live there now. Margaret Scott Cloyd originally 
came from Belfast, Ireland, and owned quite an estate there. When sixteen 
years old, she being an orphan, her uncle, who was a Captain of a ship, 
brought her to America. They fearing she had consumption, he returned 
to Ireland to dispose of her property, she owning 76 acres of land where 
the city of Belfast is — which was willed to her and her heirs ' ' as long 
as wood grew and water run. ' ' This uncle was shipwrecked and she 
never heard from him again. She married John Cloyd at some place in 

At the time the Williamsons and Cloyds left Virginia they were liv- 
ing on New Eiver near Wytheville at a place called Max Meadows. 
I wish I had the records here, but they are at my home at Green Hill. 
However, they left there some time in 1780 and came with John Don- 
nelson to French Lick, that is Nashville, when this was still a part of 
North Carolina. They came out to Clover Bottom on Stoner 's river 
and made a crop. That winter they returned to Va. for their families, John 
Williamson then having a wife and two daughters, Sarah and Margaret 
and I suppose Ezekiel Cloyd was with him as there was an old saying 
that they "swapped sisters," that is, they each married the other's sister, 
E?ekiel marrying Catherine Williamson and John W. marrying Margaret 
Cloyd. Family traditions tell of the numerous hardships they endured 
as pioneers in a wild country. There were quite a number of children 
in each family. 

Hoping this will find you well and you may get some facts in your 
search in family history, and begging pardon for the liberty I take in 
answering Mr. Williamson's letter. 

Yours truly, 

(Miss) Jennie Williamson.

Third Generation 

6. JAMES CLOYD, oldest son of Ninian, 2, and Mary (Kin- 
kaid) Cloyd, was born in Augusta County, Va., 2-21-1762. He 
entered the Revolutionary Army when he was but four- 
teen years of age. He married Rachel Tilford 11- 
7-1791. About 1790 his father, Ninian, and three sons, 
removed to Madison County, Kentucky, and about 1807, 
leaving his brother, John, in Madison County, he removed 
with his father and brother, Thomas, to Cumberland County, 
near Cloyd 's Landing on the Cumberland River, where he died 
3-26-1836. His wife was born in Madison County, Ky., 9-8-1774, 
and died in Cumberland County, 9-2-1835. He was a farmer, a 
Whig and a Presbyterian.

1790, his parents' entire family, it seems, moved to Madison 
County, Ky., where he lived the rest of his life and died in 1833 
from cholera. He was buried on the old homestead about seven 
miles southeast of Richmond and the epitaph placed on his 

104 The Cloyd Family 

tombstone is very complimentary of him as a man and a neigh- 
bor. He was a man of large stature, 6 feet tall and weighed 280 
pounds. He married Mary Reid,* about 1790, in Madison 
County, Kentucky.

*Among the pioneers of Augusta County, Va., were three brothers 
of Scotish extraction, who came from County Down in Ireland, where they 
were born. They were Thomas, John and Andrew Reid. 

Thomas, the oldest, married a highland woman, named McKean, and 
had three sons, Col. John Reid Jr., Nathan and Alexander, Col. John 
married Martha and Nathan, Sarah, daughters of their Uncle John. Alex- 
ander moved to Kentucky and he or his son, represented Shelby County 
in the legislature in 1801.

14. EZEKIEL CLOYD, the oldest son of John, 4, and Margaret 
(Scott) Cloyd, was born 2-19-1768, in Augusta County, Va., in 
the portion set aside in 1776 to form Montgomery County. Aft- 
er his marriage to Miss Rebecca Williamson in Montgomery 
County, Va., 9-24-1785, he resided at Max Meadows on New 
River in Wythe County and about 1789, with his parents and 
probably his three brothers and two sisters, he moved to Wilson 
County, Tennessee, then a part of North Carolina. His sister, 

106 The Cloyd Family 

Margaret, had married John Williamson, brother to Rebecca. 
The two men having "swapped sisters" moved to Wilson county 
at the same time. 

On his removal to North Carolina he carried with him sev- 
eral certificates given him by his friends and neighbors in Mont- 
gomery Co., which represent him as a "well behaved per- 
son" "a good member of society" and a "patriot". Rev. J. L. 
Alexander, Nashville, Tenn., says that his grandfather, Ezekiel 
Cloyd was in the Revolutionary War and became a captain (he 
was only 15 years of age when the war closed). Though a farm- 
er, he entered the Ministry of the Cumberland Presbyterian 
Church in 1814 and according to the custom of times, he labored 
on his farm during the week and preached on the Sabbath. He 
lived comfortably and was always able to extend a generous hos- 
pitality to his friends, especially to ministers. 

His personal appearance and bearing were those of an un- 
affected gentleman of the old school. His example and presence 
were a standing reproof of wickedness and vice of every kind. 
In the latter part of his life, he was subject to much bodily in- 
firmity and mental affliction, but his strong faith in his God 
never wavered. He died in Lebanon, Tennessee in August, 
1851. He was twice married. His first wife died prior to his 
ordination to the ministry in 1814, and he afterwards married 
Mrs. Nancy White, widow of Rev. John White, a Methodist min- 
ister, a woman of great worth, who died also in Lebanon, April 
17, 1854. In politics he was a Whig. 

The foregoing account of Ezekiel Cloyd is taken from "Bio- 
graphical Sketches of Presbyterian Ministers, ' ' by Rev. Richard 
Beard, published 1867. 

Rev. J. L. Alexander, a grandson, writing in 1901, says, "The mother of 
Ezekiel Cloyd was a member of the Presbyterian Church and so the son was 
trained under Presbyterian discipline. About the year 1798, 
after his marriage, he came under the scriptural and heart searching 
preaching of Rev. James McGrady in Sumner County, Tenn., and though 
a member of the Church, he became convicted that he was an unregenerate 
man and a stranger experimentally to God's saving grace and he so sought 
and professed regeneration. My mother, then fifteen years of age, pro- 
fessed religion at the same meeting. Upon the organization of the Cumber- 
land Presbyterian Church, he became a candidate for the Ministry and 
was licensed to preach at New Hope, Wilson County, Tennessee, March 
30th, 1814. 

The Cloyd Family 107 

He was in the active work of the ministry as an evangelist and as 
a pastor nearly forty years. He preached often and labored much, even 
in old age, in vacant churches and destitute places. He delivered two hun- 
dred and ninety-one sermons at the church that now bears Ms name. His 
character was above reproach. He was regarded as a good man, a sound 
patriot, and a worthy citizen in Virginia, his native state. He was a captain 
in the Eevoution. His bearing at home and abroad was that of a Christian 
gentleman, his dealings with his fellow men fair and honorable, his manner, 
kind and courteous, commanding the respect of friend and foe alike on 
account of his firm convictions of the right. 

On one occasion when a dance was to be held at the home of a neigh- 
bor and relative, he entered the house when the guests were assembled and 
much to the consternation and surprise of all, with hymn book and bible in 
hand, sung a hymn, offered a fervent prayer and preached an appropriate 
sermon, without referring to the purpose of the gathering. After another 
fervent prayer, he shook hands with each one present, inquiring after their 
welfare and returned to his home. Others followed his example and the 
subject of dancing was scarcely mentioned in the community for half a 

The house built in 1800 mostly by his own hands, from hewn cedar 
logs, weatherboarded, ceiled and painted, still stands a noble specimen of 
the honest and faithful workmanship of the early years in the 19th century. 
He owned a large body of land on Stoner's Creek in Wilson County on which 
this house was built. He gave seven acres to the church, on which were 
erected a house of worship and a Camp Meeting shelter. Camp Meetings 
were held here from 1813 to 1857. Scores and hundreds were converted at 
these meetings, many of whom became ministers. 

The camp ground has been broken up; camp meetings are no longer 
held; the protracted meeting taking its place. The first house, a small one, 
of cedar logs, was replaced by a small brick structure, which, in turn gave 
way to the present commodius frame house. ' '

108 The Cloyd Family 

16. DAVID CLOYD, the youngest son of John, 4, and 
Margaret (Scott) Cloyd, was b. in Montgomery County, Virginia, 
6-27-1771. About 1789 the family left Virginia and moved to 
that part of North Carolina, which was afterwards set off to 
form Tennessee. David settled on Whites Creek in Davidson 
County, about seven miles northeast from Nashville, while the 
rest of the family settled in Wilson County. 

March 17, 1795, David Cloyd ra. Sarah Marshall, b. 5-23- 
1773, dau. of Gilbert and Martha (Rowan) Marshall. She d. 
1-18-1840. Some time after the death of his wife, David deeded 
his farm to his son, Ezekiel, with whom he expected to spend the 
remainder of his life. Ezekiel died in 1847 leaving one child 
and a widow, who afterwards married William James, whose 
first wife was Martha Cloyd, Ezekiel 's sister. After Ezekiel 's 
death, David made his home with his son John in Fayette Coun- 
ty, Tennessee. He lies in the family burying ground near Som- 
erville, Fayette County, Tenn. 

Like his brother, Ezekiel, he possessed a liberal education 
for the conditions under which people lived at that time, and 
though a farmer by occupation, he was a minister of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church. 

Whites Creek, Davidson County, Tenn., 

August 18th, A. D., 1839. 
Dear Son: — 

After my compliments to you and yours, I am again permitted to com- 
municate with you by letter and inform you that I am now in health, or as 
much so as could be expected for one of my age, and I hope these lines will 
find you and yours enjoying the smiles and joys of a kind Providence, sur- 
rounded with health, comfort, peace and happiness. 

Your Mother's health is as good as common, tho I can perceive she is 
on the decline very fast, partly in consequence of the trouble she has lately 
had to undergo about her children. The rest of the friends (as far as I 
know) are all well at this time. The last letter I received from you was 
dated April 7th, in which you requested me to give you a concise account of 
your brothers and sisters in this country, which I will now undertake in a 
very brief manner. John Cloyd is now living in Fayette County, near Sum- 
merville in the Western District. He has four daughters and two sons. His 
eldest daughter is married and doing well. They were all well the last 
account. He owns a good tract of land there and is well pleased. Mr. 
James now lives on Cruddles old place by McGaphoe tovv'er. Terry has 
five sons and four daughters living. Eliza, his third daughter, is dead. His 
eldest son is married. They are all well and doing well. Ezekiel is still 
living with me. 

The Cloyd Family 109 

James M. Cloyd settled in Hardymon County in the Western District, 
but now I come to tell you the hardest of all. On the 12th of June last he 
departed this life after an illness of six days. His complaint was flux and 
fever. He has left a disconsolate wife, two sons and two daughters to 
deplore their loss. His death was a very severe trial on me, and one I was 
very illy prepared to encounter, as it was the first of the kind I ever met 
with, but I bear up with as much fortitude as I can, when I consider it is 
a debt we all have to pay, and our loss is His gain. It does console me some, 
for he died shouting "Glory, Glory," in prospect of a happy immortality. 
He was a zealous Christian and an Elder in the Cumberland Presbyterian 
Church. He requested his friends all to meet him in Heaven. His wife 
has a home and a negro girl to assist her in raising her little children. 

Mr. P. Cloyd is now living at John's old place until he gets his build- 
ing erected on his own land. His health is not good, tho he bids fair to 
make a good living. He and his wife are both very industrious. They have 
one son. 

John C. Marshall and Eliza Jane live in "Wilson County, near States- 
ville. They are now on a visit at my house. They are well. They have two 
sons and two daughters living and one son dead. They are making a toler- 
able living. 

Margaret in her last letter informed me that you have got you another 
companion. As to that matter you know your business better than I do, tho 
I hope she will make you as good a one as your other. Present my best 
wishes and respects to her as my daughter. 

As to my own domestic concerns, I am getting along as well as usual. 
We have a good crop of everything, almost. Wheat was excellent, oats also 
good. Corn is very good. Fruit of every description, — in short it is a dis- 
play of the benevolent goodness of a kind Providence to us His ungrateful 
children. Our state election is just over. It has terminated in the triumph 
of the self-styled Democrats in the election of Governor and Legislature, 
tho I am a Whig, and one of the old stamp, a true friend to my country. 
As to religious matters, times are rather dull, tho I am still determined by 
the grace of God to hold out faithful to the end. 

Dear Gilbert, it is always desirable to hear from my children, but more 
especially when they are laboring under afflictions. I feel great concern for 
Margaret and her little children in their discrepod situation. From what I 
can learn it is quite probable Wiley will not live long. I feel some delicacy 
in writing to him or her about what had best be done if he dies, for fear it 
would hurt his feelings. I want you to consult with her, whether she would 
rather come to this country again or not, and what you think best to be done 
for her. I cannot do very much, tho if she is in distress I will do all I can, 
and I can do enough to bring her and the children back to this country and 
aid them in getting a support if they are in distress, while I live, but I am 
old and my time is short, and what would become of her after that I cannot 
tell. I wish you to consult with her if you think best, and send me your 
views of what had best be done, and delay no time as it is necessary to know 
these things before Ezekiel starts to that country if he goes. 

110 The Cloyd Family 

Give my kind respects to all your children. I have many things I could 
communicate, but I have already extended my letter to an unusual length. I 
must therefore bid you an affectionate farewell. 

David Cloyd.

of these five brothers is supposed to be the father of Thomas

1805, d. 2-19-1877, whose maiden name was Colbern and who 
bore him three children. She was a native of Virginia and had 
been reared in Kentucky, and had married three times pre- 
viously. Her first husband's name was Bratton, the second 
Jones, by whom she left a daughter, Elizabeth. She also had 
a daughter, Harriet Rawlston, who married a Mr. Crowder. 

Gilbert Marshall Cloyd, like his father, in religion, was a 
Methodist ; but differed from him in politics, being a Democrat. 
His father, David Cloyd, was a Whig of the old stamp. 

In 1862, against the advice of his friends, he entered the 
Confederate Army and after a few months' service, contracted

near Nashville and removed to Hardymon Co., Tenn., where he 
died 6-12-1839. He left four small children, two sons and two 
daughters. No positive information has been secured about them. 
It is thought, however, that he was the father of Francis Marion 
Cloyd, and that his widow married twice after his death, as she 
left one daughter by name of Griffith and a son by the name of 
John Nooner. 

Mrs. L. E. Shearer, New Canton, 111., a daughter of Francis 
Marion Cloyd, says her grandfather's name was James M., that 
in the '70 's her father received a letter from Newton Cloyd 
Beard, telling of a small legacy, still in the hands of the court 
in some place in Tennessee and which he afterwards received. 
Mrs. Shearer claims, however, that her father was an only son. 

It is, therefore, assumed, on what the writer believes to be 
reasonably reliable authority, that James M., was the father of,

The following biography is extracted from a Nashville paper, 
dated August 18th, 1906 : 

' ' When Rev. Joseph Lowry Alexander died this looming, one of God 's 
most constant and consistent servants passed to his reward. He was a min- 
ister of the old school and delighted in his calling. He was instrumental in 
bringing thousands to Christ by the earnestness and effectiveness of his 

"He was pastor of Cane Ridge Church in Davidson County for nearly 
twenty years and was also pastor of the Watkins Park Presbyterian church 
and the Ninth Cumberland Presbyterian church in Nashville for several 
years. His different pastorates extended over a period of fifty years. 
For the last several years he preferred missionary work to a pastor- 
ate and traveled over many counties preaching nearly every Sunday. It was 
his boast that in all his life he never missed but one appointment when it was 
possible for him to keep it. The son of Godly parents, he was reared in an 
atmosphere of wholesome piety and the strength of his Christian character 
in later life is not surprising. His mother was a woman of rare intellectual 
vigor and Christian virtues. She was the daughter of Rev. Ezekiel Cloyd, 
one of the first preachers licensed in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 
which was founded in 1810. 

134 The Cloyd Family 

Mr. Alexander was converted at a camp meeting at tbe Stoner 's Creek 
Church in 1842, when only thirteen years of age, entered the ministry in 
1851 and graduated from the Cumberland University in 1856."

The Cloyd Family 143 

213. JOHN WESLEY CLOYD, b. 9-4-1826, near Boonesboro, 
Howard County, Mo., son of Gilbert Marshall, 60, and Malinda 
(Jones) Cloyd, m. 2-29-1849 near Rocheport, Howard Co., Eliza 
Jane Basye b. 6-2-1826 in Culpepper Co., Va., dau. of Richard 
Taylor and Mary (Tapp) Basye. 

His mother died when he was eleven years old. When he 
was about thirteen years old his father re-married and he went 
to live with an older sister, Sarah, who had married John Pat- 
rick. He remained with his sister four or five years and then 
lived with J. W. A. Patterson, near Fayette until his marriage 
in 1849. While with Mr. Patterson he learned the tanners' 
trade and received twenty five dollars a year for his services. 
After his marriage he engaged in farming which pursuit he fol- 
lowed the rest of his life. 

His school advantages in childhood were very limited, and 
yet by application in after life and by reading he acquired a 
large fund of information. He was a great Bible student and 
read the Bible through repeatedly. The family altar was main- 
tained in his home until his family was nearly all grown. He 
joined the Disciples or Campbellite Church in early life and after 
his marriage transferred his membership to the Baptist Church 
in order to be in the same church as his wife. 

At the beginning of the Civil War he attempted to maintain 
an attitude of neutrality. His sympathies were naturally with 
the South and when this became known, and after an attempt on 
his life by his enemies, he entered the Confederate Army and re- 
mained with it until the close of the war. In October, 1864, he 
enlisted at Glasgow, Mo., in Gen. John B. Clarke's Brigade, a 
portion of Gen. Sterling Price 's army which was marching South- 
ward through western Missouri. His oldest son, Willard W., a 
lad only 15 years old, a few weeks before joined another Com- 
pany of Price's Army. 

No pen can ever describe the emotions that must have rent 
his breast when he found he must leave his wife and six small 
children at home, as he felt his life would be safer in the service 
than at home. Driven from home by the cruel exigencies of 
war, he found some comfort in the thought that he might be near 
his son, not yet grown but who had experienced a burst of patriot- 
ism and had already joined the army. During the winter of '64 
and '65 he had ample opportunities of exercising this paternal 

144 The Cloyd Family 

care. Price 's Army went into winter quarters on the Red River 
near the Indian Territory and Arkansas State line. His son 
Willard was stricken with malarial fever. The father's camp 
was eight or ten miles from the hospital. This distance he cov- 
ered daily on foot for several days in order to render what assis- 
tance and attention he could to his son. He succeeded in secur- 
ing an order to have his son transferred to another hospital near 
Washington, Arkansas, more healthfully located, where the son 
soon recovered. 

In April 1865, when the news of Lee's surrender was receiv- 
ed his command was ordered to Shreveport, La., to surrender. 
He and his son and many others proceeded to Pine Bluff, Ark 
however, it being in the direction of home, and surrendered to 
Gen. Powell Clayton and were immediately parolled. No time 
was lost in returning to his family and home in Howard Co., Mo., 
which they reached some time in May. 

He was a man about 5 ft. 9 in. tall and weighed 200 to 225 
pounds. Dark hair, but not black, and dark brown eyes showed 
the crossing of his Scotch-Irish ancestry with other stock. Hon- 
est to a fault he built up a reputation for integrity second to 
none. Affectionate and kind to his family, no such thing as dis- 
cord ever entered his home. He was loved by his children with 
an exceptional filial devotion. 

The following extract from a letter written by a nephew 
who had known his uncle long and intimately is a fitting testi- 
monial to the character of the man. 

W. W. Cloyd, New Birmingham, Texas, June 8, 1891. 

Fayette, Mo. 
Dear Cousin : — 

I was truly shocked by the sad intelligence contained in your favor of 
the 20th, of the sudden death of Uncle John, and I scarcely have language 
to convey to you my sorrow at this news. But while this grieves me most 
deeply there is a most cheering thought in a review of the noble and exem- 
plary Christian life of the beloved departed one. It is rare indeed that men 's 
lives are so uniformly pure and upright, both as Christian men and as pure 
and honored citizens. And when we reflect that our ultimate destiny is his, 
and also that it is inevitable, we may be permitted to feel a just pride in 
his life's record. Few men can boast purer and truly nobler ancestors or 
kinsman. After a life now nearing the half cei>tury-post, and a busy one 
too, mingling with people of all classes and notions, I have rarely if ever 
met his equal, and never his superior in these qualities; and surely if his 
life is not worthy of emulation then none is.

422, WILLIAM CASON CLOYD, was b. near Glasgow, How- 
ard Co., Mo., 9-16-1844. He was the only son of David Preston 
Cloyd, 212, by his marriage to Mrs. Lutesia (Cason) Miller. 
His mother died when he was about one year old. He was edu- 
cated in the public schools and when the Civil War broke out, 
he enlisted in the Confederate Army and served throughout 
the war. 

Soon after returning from the war, he located at Seward, 
Neb., and became prominently identified with the business in- 
terests of that growing town. ' ' Cloyd 's Addition ' ' to Seward is 
on land once owned by him. For many years he was editor and 
proprietor of the Nebraska Herald, one of the leading democratic 
papers of the state. 

While in Seward, he married Mary B. Simcoke, who was b. 
at Decatur, Ind., and two daughters followed the union. 

In the Fall of 1875, he returned to his former home in 
Missouri, having sustained severe financial losses. He clung 
to his newspaper work and was connected with the Sedalia (Mo.) 
Star for some time. After this he tried his fortune in Florida, 
then in Louisiana, and later in Texas, In October, 1880, at 

The Cloyd Family 165 

Opelousas, La., he married Miss Fanny Virginia Summers of 
Jacksonville, Fla. He is a democrat and a Christian. He is 
now (1909) Secretary of the Commercial Club at Rusk, Texas, 
and is also engaged in newspaper work. 

The following is a brief account of his experience in the 
Civil War : 

"At the beginning of the war he resided in Holt County, 
Mo., with his father. The news of the first victories of the Con- 
federate forces in Virginia and of those nearer home in the first 
campaign in Missouri soon fired the martial spirit in his ardent 
young nature, and one evening in 1861, in company with several 
neighbor boys of his own age he quietly slipped away from home 
and joined General Price's army. Like his companions he had 
little idea what war was to be. He received his first baptism of 
fire at the battle of Lexington, (Mo.). 

After the battle of Lexington, he enlisted in Company C, 
1st Mo. Cavalry, C. S. A., under Colonel Elijah Gates of St. 
Joseph. Of this regiment of nearly 1100 men less than 200 ever 
returned home. Throughout the four years of civil strife he was 
with his company in many of the most hotly contested battles 
in the campaign in Mississippi, at Corinth, luka, and the siege 
of Vicksburg. After the surrender of Vicksburg he was ex- 
changed and joined a command under General Joseph E. John- 
ston, and being separated from his command one day he made 
his was across the Mississippi River and rejoined Price's com- 
mand in Arkansas with which he remained until the close of 
the war."

Experiences of W. W. Clotb With The Army of General Sterling Price 
In The Great American Civil War. 

In the fall of 1864, when I was two months under fifteen years of age, 
in company with several neighbor boys of my age, among whom were, E. E. 
Turner, Thos. Snell, O. G. Willis, Joseph Pearson and Wm. Humphrey, I 
decided to join Gen. Price 's army. Captain Heber Price with about twenty 
men from Col. William's regiment, which had crossed the Missouri Eiver at 
Boonville to gather up recruits on the North side of the river, appeared in 
our neighborhood October 14th, 1864, and took dinner at the house of J. 
Milton Moon. 

Bidding my father and mother and family an affectionate adieu, I 
mounted my horse and rode away to join Price's army. The recruits assem- 
bled about half a mile from my home between the farms of John Stinnian 
and Wm. Gates. Captain Price lined up the recruits and commanding us to 
take off our hats and hold up our right hands, gravely swore us into Con- 
federate States army for three years during the War. 

My mother had followed me to this point and again bid me a tender 
good bye, admonished me to be a good boy and to "Always remember that 
your mother is praying for you. ' ' Brushing aside a tear, I rode away. 
About ten o'clock that night we came up with Col. William's regiment, con- 
sisting of about 400 men in camp on Burt Huss ' farm north of Glasgow. 

The next day we passed through Keytesville and Brunswick and crossed 
the Grand Eiver at Eocky Ford. At daylight, on the morning of the 16th 
we drew up in front of Carrolton where there were about 300 federals 
stationed. We captured the picket and his gun, a Minnie rifle, was turned 
over to me and I took my place in the line of battle. After a short parley, 
the federals surrendered and we returned with them to Brunswick. Captain 
Wm. Daniels and a detail of men were sent back to bring a flat boat down 
the Grand Eiver into the Missouri Eiver below the town to use in crossing 
the command to the south side of the Missouri. As the boat started down 
stream some federal bushwhackers on the opposite shore, fired on the party 
mortally wounding Captain Daniels who died that night. He was a fine 
soldier and greatly beloved by his men. 

October 18th, we passed through Marshall, Saline county and reached 
Waverly on the 19th, where Col. Williams parolled all the prisoners except 
six men who were charged with murdering Col. Williams' brother. Leaving 
Waverly and passing through Lexington, marching all that night, we came up 
with General Price's main army at daybreak as he was breaking camp. 
Although we had eaten nothing for thirty-six hours, we continued on the 
march for several hours longer. We were finally ordered to halt and have 
breakfast. There were some very fine beef cattle in a pasture and we proceeded 
to appropriate one for our use but before we had time to dress the beef, we 
were ordered to the front in double quick toward the Little Blue river where 
Shelby was pushing the enemy hard. We were dismounted and marched 
across the Little Blue to protect the left flank of Gen. Marmanduke who was 
also pressing the enemy. The enemy retreated, we returned to our horses 

170 The Cloyd Family 

and took up the line of march towards Independence. This was a hard 
fought battle and the federals left their dead on the field. 

As we marched through a beautiful prairie country, I witnessed some of 
the effects of Order No. 11. Not a human being was to be seen, and nothing 
had been left that could be carried off or burned. Stately chimneys were 
the lonely sentinels in this now desolate country that a few months before 
had throbbed with the pulses of prosperous homes. The sight of this desola- 
tion kindled new ardor in the breasts of Shelby 's men, ajid they forgot their 
own privations. We cam]3ed that night at Independence and were so fatig- 
ued that we burned our boots as we slept around the camp fire. The next 
morning, October 22nd, with timorous step, I approached a brick house where 
a lady gave me a nice warm breakfast, the first square meal I had had since 
leaving home. It was two months before I had another one. 

We maneuvered all the next day and at night bivouacked in line of 
battle. Activities began early on the morning of the 23rd and we had plenty 
of hard fighting during the day. Little Jimmie, or Charlie Eothwell, younger 
than I, while riding by my side, had the top of his head torn away by a 
cannon ball. We had to leave his body on the field. My horse was shot 
through the jaw, but soon rallied and I kept in line. The federals out- 
numbered us and we retreated southward. While marching next day, October 
24th, I fell in with my father who had joined Searcy's battalion of Gen. J. 
B. Clark's brigade, the next day after I left home. With him was his uncle, 
Wilkerson Jones. I eagerly inquired about the honiefolks and father 
informed me that he and several neighbors had joined the army as they were 
afraid they would be killed if they remained at home. 

Price's army was now in full retreat southward through the western tier 
of Missouri counties with a body of cavalry in pursuit. We made several 
stands to hold them in check and protect our wagon train, a part of which 
was burned on the 26th to prevent it falling into the hands of the federals. 
In a fight that occurred just south of Newtonia, John Trigg, who was next to 
me, was shot in the knee. After this the federals did not pursue us any 
further. The command continued southward along the border of Arkansas 
and Indian Territory. 

One dark, cold, rainy night, while returning to camp from picket duty, 
my horse, weakened from inability to eat on account of the wound in his 
jaw, sank in the mud and I had to abandon him. I was now afoot as were 
many others. Eainsoaked, cold and exhausted, I sank beside a log fire and 
slept. I became separated from my company and did not get with it again 
until after we had crossed the Red River into Texas near Clarksville when 
the command had gone into winter quarters. 

In January I was taken sick with fever and sent to the hospital at 
Fulton, Arkansas. My father had been transferred to the 8th Missouri 
Infantry which was camped about ten miles from Fulton. He came to see 
me every day for several days, walking the entire distance, and through his 
efforts, I was removed to the College Hospital near Washington, Arkansas. 
I was a very sick boy and I have always thought that the close and untiring 

The Cloyd Family 171 

attention of my father and the prayers of my mother saved me from an 
untimely grave in Arkansas. 

Recovering after several weeks, I was put on post duty at Washington. 
There were about one hundred and fifty prisoners both federal and confeder- 
ate confined in the court house, the federals about thirty in number, occupy- 
ing the second story and the confederates the lower. I learned to count the 
hours when on guard duty at night by the length of the candles as they 

After several weeks, I was relieved of duty and decided to visit my 
father before returning to my command, Shelby's brigade, which was in 

The 8th Missouri had been ordered to Lewisville, about thirty-five miles 
south. I walked half the distance the first day to Spring Hill and rode the 
remaining distance the next day on a government wagon. When I reached 
Lewisville, I found my father 's company was in quarantine on account of 
small-pox, about 8 miles out toward Camden, I went out to where his com- 
pany was the next day after arriving at Lewisville. O. G. Willis was with 
the same company. The men seemed to be having a general good time and not 
worrying about the small-pox which was a ruse to get away from camp duties. 
Here the time was occupied by squirrel hunting in the day, coon hunting at 
night, escorting the girls to church on Sunday and occasionally helping some 
farmer roll logs for a good dinner. I partook of these exercises and grew 

It was now the last of April. Lee and Johnston had surrendered. Our 
cause was lost and we began to think of returning home. We were ordered 
to Shreveport, La., to surrender. My father and I with others, however, went 
to Pine Bluff, Ark., it being the nearest way back to Missouri and sur- 
rendered to General Powell Clayton and were immediately paroled. We took 
passage on the steamer Rose Hamilton for Memphis and there boarded the 
Marble City for St. Louis. From there, we went by rail to Renick and 
walked from there arriving home some time in May. I need not attempt to 
describe the joy there was in our once more united family.

First Generation 

Descendants of William Cloyd, Immigrant No. 9 

1. WILLIAM CLOYD, No. 9, immigrant, a Scotchman, born 
1751, landed in Philadelphia in 1774, or '75, from Ballymony, 
County, Antrim, Duchy Ulster, Ireland. It is said he was son of 
James Cloyd who married a Reed. He served as a private in the 
Pennsylvania Line during the Revolutionary War and was pen- 
sioned in 1833. He also served as a private in the Virginia 
Army in the company of Capt. Benj. Biggs at Fort Pitt and was 
at the battle of Brandywine. 

He married Jeanette Barr, daughter of James Barr, a man 
of wealth whose wife was a Caldwell. She was a niece of Lady 
Jane Barr, a woman of considerable prominence in Ireland. 
She followed him to America against the wishes of her parents, 
and kept him on probation for two years before she married him. 
She was nine weeks on the water. When he learned of her ar- 
rival in Philadelphia, he walked 54 miles one day, and reached 
Philadelphia by 4 o'clock to be refused admission to the house 
of her cousin, Charles Stewart, with whom she was living. She 
met him at the gate and promised to marry him in two years 
if he proved worthy and he evidently made good as they were 
married at the appointed time. She died 4-7-1814, Washington 
Co., Tenn. 

After the Revolutionary War he settled in Washington 
County, Tennessee, where he died April 7th, 1837.

Daniel Clyde, Immigrant No. 14 

From a brief account in "Morrison's History" and with 
the assistance of Thomas Cloyd of Webster, S. D., and Paul C. 
Cloyd of Plainfield, N. J., the following account of some of the 
descendants of Daniel Clyde has been prepared: 

1. DANIEL CLYDE, a Scotchman, came from Londonderry, 
County Antrim, Ireland, in 1832, and settled in Windliam, N. 
H., then called Londonderry. 

He belonged to a colony of Scotch people who emigrated 
to the north of Ireland in the time of the persecution of the 
Protestants by the Papists. He was born about 1683 as he died 
in Windham, 6-4-1753, aged 70 years. He married Esther Ran- 
kin, dau. of Hugh Rankin, an emigrant to Londonderry from 
County Antrim, Ireland. She was a woman of worth who pos- 
sessed a strong religious character. She was born in 1706, and 
died 2-16-1779. It is not known how many of his children 
changed the name to Cloyd, or whether that change was re- 
served for some of his grandchildren to make.

Basye Family 


Books on Geneaology frequently originate in the desire to 
trace lineage or to ascertain certain facts about some ancestor. 
Both of these facts actuated the writer in his efforts to find out 
what he could about the Basye family. 

Notwithstanding considerable effort has been put forth, the 
results have been unsatisfactory in tracing the beginnings of the 
family because of incomplete, inaccessible or lost records. Much 
time has been consumed in the collection of the information here- 
with presented and it is published for the benefit and pleasure 
it may be to others. Time has not permitted the gathering 
of more complete information and the notes are printed without 
any apology for their present form. 

I. Walter Basye, Bowling Green, i\Io., has gone extensively 
into this matter and proposes in a short time to publish a com- 
plete History of the Basye Family. Acknowledgement is here- 
by made to him for many of the notes contained herein and other 
valuable information. 


Basye is French. It has been claimed that the family came 
to France in about the 13th century from that part of northern 
Spain inhabited by the Basques near the Bay of Biscay and that 
Edward de Basye was a personal friend of Henry of Navarre. 
People by the name still reside in Allsace-Loraine. 

The Basyes were Huguenots, or French Protestants. After 
the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 many of the Hugue- 
nots fled to Holland and England and thence to America. 

Alejandro Basye* a Frenchman with two brothers came to 
America about 1686, and failing to find sufficient of heroic ad- 
venture to suit his mettle, returned to England and joined an 
expedition that sailed around Cape Horn to the Philippine 

*C. L. Hoover, United States Consul at Madrid, who spent many years 
in the Philippines, also Dampier 's Voyage to the Philippines. 


208 The Basye Family 

During the stay on the island of Mindanao he fell in love 
with a daughter of a ^Malayan prince and stole her away from 
her parents, going in a native boat with a few companions across 
the sea to the island of Samar. There on the west coast of that 
island he founded the city of Basey, or Basia, now a place of 
about 12,000. Other Europeans joined him and he always held 
a commanding position among them. He left two daughters, 
only one of whom was married. His last descendant was drown- 
ed in a tidal wave which swept over the place some years ago. 

John Basye settled in Hartford, Conn., in 1635, and was a 
man of high standing judging from the various positions of 
trust held by him, and the prominent mention of his name in 
Hannam's Memorial History of Hartford, (Vol. 2, Sec. 1, p. 
277). He left no male issue. He had three daughters; Mary 
married Burr, Lydia, married Baker, and Elizabeth married 
Peck. His sister, Adrean Basye, married John Lord at Hartford, 
Sept. 15th, 1648. 

The name Bassie as in the will was handed down as a given 
name for more than a century. 

The Richmond Land Office shows Eliza Bassye came to this 
country in 1650. 

Michael Basye sold land in Maryland in 1653. He came over 
in the good ship Adventure. He died at Dorchester, Maryland, 
1688, willing all his property to his wife, Joan, and mentioned

Descendants of Edmond and Winnifred Basye 

1. EDMOND BASYE bought land of Lord Fairfax in Prince 
William Co., Virginia, in 1754. A little later he settled in Fau- 
quier Co., as he and John Basye were enrolled in 1761 as Ser- 
geants in a company of militia raised in Fauquier County by 
Colonel Wm. Edmonds to fight Indians. It is evident that he 
came from Northumberland County. He must have been born 
between 1720 and 1730 and married about 1750. He died in 
Culpepper County in 1810. His wife was Winnifred.

had fourteen sons, seven of whom served in the Eevolutionary War and 
thirteen held office under the government at one time.) 

The ten sons of George Taylor who were all in the Revolutionary War, 
were Sergeant Major James, Lieut. Jonathan, Capt. Edmund, Col. Francis,

times that his mother, Elizabeth James, was related to both President Tay- 
lor and President Madison. 

The relationship of Elizabeth James to the Taylors has never been 
clearly traced.

a wealthy man who left 1200 acres of land and many negroes. 
At one time he ran a tavern in Jeffersonton, and conducted a 
general store for several years with Wm. Rixey as partner in 
which he lost heavily. He also lost heavily by being compelled 
to pay surety obligations. He followed his father to Pike Co., 
Ohio, in 1833, and with him removed to Rocheport, Howard 
Co., Mo., in 1836. He was a Justice of the Peace for many 
years. He was also as was his wife a faithful member of the

The Basye Family 219 

During General LaFayette's last visit to America, he was 
entertained Aug. 23, 1825, at the Tavern in Jeffersonton con- 
ducted by Richard T. Basye. The party was so large that a 
spacious and commodious arbor was erected at one end of the 
tavern under which the guests were seated at a long table. The 
fork, a two tined horn handled one, used by Gen. LaFayette 
on this occasion was used in the family many years. The com- 
piler of this book, a grandson of R. T. Basye, remembers seeing 
the fork often in his childhood days. It is stated that the fork 
having a crooked handle would slip down into the General's 
plate and that a negro servant who stood behind him would 
take the fork, wipe it on a napkin and return it to its place.

First Generation 

Tapp Family 

1. ELIZABETH TAPP purchased 450 acres of land in Spott- 
sylvania Co., Va., Aug. 24, 1722. In 1724, as a widow while a 
resident of St. George's Parish, she deeded the same land and 
also sold all her personal property to her two sons William 
and Vincent and daughter Charity Wood, wife of Bartholomew 
Wood. In the deed to this transaction the name is spelled 

Children : 

*2. William, m. Christian . 

3. Vincent. 

4. Charity, m. Bartholomew Wood. 

2. WM. TAPP and wife Christian of St. Mark's Parish in 1736 
sold their portion of the above land which was situated in 
St. George's Parish. William patented a tract of land in Spott- 
sylvania Co., in 1728 which he and his wife sold in 1737. In 
1736 William secured a patent to 118 acres in that part of 
Orange County afterwards set off to form Culpeper County. 
In 1736 Vincent Tapp sold the land deeded to him by his mother 
in 1724. 

In 1755, William Tapp of Culpeper Co., Va., made deeds 
of gift of land to three of his children, viz: To William 143 
acres; to Vincent 204 acres; and to Sarah, wife John Jett 148 
acres. In 1758 he gave 190 acres to Jas. Green who married 
his daughter Elizabeth. In 1763 he gave 587 acres to his son 
Lewis. In 1765 he gave 57 acres to John Cunningham who 
married his daughter Ann, and on the same date the 118 acres 
he patented in 1736 to John Graham who married his daughter 
Alice and their son Spencer Graham. All the land not otherwise 
described was in Culpeper County. 


228 The Tapp Family 

The will of Wm. Tapp was dated June 27, 1780 and proven 
at Culpeper Court House, Jan. 27, 1791. In his will he men- 
tions his wife Christian and eight children named below. 

Children : 
*5. William, m. about 1754, Elizabeth ; moved to N. C. 

prior to 1767. 
*6. Vincent, m. about 1754, Mollie, dau. of John Jett; d. 


7. Sarah, m. about 1754, John Jett, son of John Jett. 

8. Elizabeth, m. about 1758, Jas. Green. 

*9. Lewis, m. about 1763, Ann ; moved to N. C. 

10. Ann, m. about 1765, John Cunningham. 

11. Alice, or ''Alse", m. about 1765, John Graham (left one 

son Spencer.) 

12. Mary, m. Yates. 

5. WILLIAM TAPP, JR., and his wife Elizabeth of Orange 
Co., N. C, in 1767 conveyed to Thos. Hopper, Jr., of Culpepper 
Co., Va., the 143 acres of land in Culpeper Co., conveyed to 
him by his father Wm. Tapp, Sr., in 1755. 

In 1790, Wm. Tapp lived in Caswell Co., N. C, and his son 
Abner in Orange County. Abner's son Richard had eight chil- 
dren. Richard had three daughters to marry men by the names 
of Hart, Bowling and Hobbs. Richard Tapp had one son Ruf- 
fian R. Tapp, who married Miss Dunnegan, granddaughter of 
Lewis Tapp and Jennie Yancey. Sidney C. Tapp of Atlanta, 
Ga., and Luther C. Tapp of Kingston, N. C, are sons of Ruffian 
R. Tapp. Thomas Tapp of Hillsboro, N. C, is a grandson of 

William Tapp was allowed 1425 pounds of tobacco by the 
Virginia Legislature in 1756 for services as a foot soldier in 
the Culpeper Co. Militia which was sent against the French 
and Indians. (Hennings statutes. Vol. 7, p. 22.) As only sin- 
gle men were enlisted this record undoubtedly refers to Wm. 
son of Wm. and Christian, and as he was married in 1754 or 
'55, his service in the Militia must have been prior to that time. 

Wm Tapp, b. 1750; d. 1796 was a Lieut, in the N. Y. Line, Eevolu- 
tionary Army. His descendants live in New York City. 

Joseph Tapp was a Eevolutionary soldier in the Delaware Army. 
(4th Keport, Nat'l Soc. Dau. of the Eevolution, 1900-1901). 

The Tapp Family 229 

William Tapp was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and 
his name was reported to the Governor of Virginia in 1835 by 
Commissioner John H. Smith, as being entitled to Land Bounty. 
(Doc. 44, p. 45— Public Printer, Richmond, Va., 1835.) 

As there were three William Tapps living during the Revo- 
lutionary War it is not known to which the record refers. The 
elder Wm. was evidently too old for service. The second Wm. 
removed to N. C. prior to 1767, and while tradition in his family 
says that he was in the war, it is not known wiiether he was in 
the Virginia or North Carolina Army. 

Wm. Tapp (3) son of Vincent (6) was old enough for ser- 
vice but there is no tradition of his being in the war. 

Third Generation 

6. VINCENT TAPP, son of William and Christian Tapp, mar- 
ried Mollie, dau. of John Jett. His will was dated Nov. 22, 
1790, and probated in Culpepper Co., Jan. 17, 1791. He ap- 
pointed his son William Tapp and his friend James Jett as 

Vincent Tapp* was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. The 
records of the Adjutant General's Office at Washington show 
that "Vincent Tapp, Sr,, (name also found as Vinet Tappan) 

* There was a third Vincent Tapp in the Revolutionary War, but his 
relationship to the other two is not known. The Government records show 
the following: "Vincent Tapp, (name also appears as Vinct Tapp Jr. and 
Vinet Tapp Jr.) enlisted at Wheeling, Va., and was commissioned Sergeant 
Dec. 1 1776, in Capt. Stephen Asliby's Company, 12th Va. Eeg't, afterwards 
the 8th, Commanded by Col. James Wood. He served three years and was 
discharged in Dec. 1779, at Morristown, N. J. He was wounded in the arm 
at Brandywine, and was in the battle of Monmouth. 

The Richmond Land Office shows that he was issued a warrant for 200 
acres of land, 1783, for three years service as Sergeant Major in the Revo- 
lutionary War. (Book 1, P. 241). 

Hennings Statues (Vol. 15, p. 183) says: "A duplicate land warrant 
was authorized by legislative act June 2, 1799, for 200 acres of land to 
Vincent Tapp for services as Sergeant Major in the 8th Va. Reg't of the 
Continental Army. ' ' 

Vincent Tapp was pensioned in 1820 at which time he was nearly sixty- 
three years of age and a resident of Staunton, Augusta Co., Va. He died in 
1824 and his wife, whose maiden name was Gamble, died in 1835. Walter 
H. and Henry I. Tapp are referred to in the pension records, but no rela- 
tionship mentioned. 

Vincent Tapp resided in Staunton, from 1804 until his death. He was 
appointed postmaster in 1796 and was deputy County Clerk in 1820. 

230 The Tapp Family 

served as a private in Capt. Stephen Ashby's Company, 12tli 
Virginia Regiment, commanded by Col. James Wood. He en- 
listed Oct. 10, 1776, for two years ; was transferred about June, 
1778, to Lt. Col. John Neville's Company, 4th, 8th and 12th Vir- 
ginia Regiment, commanded by Col. James Wood and was dis- 
charged Oct. 10, 1778." 

The Richmond Land Office shows that a warrant No. 921, 
June 20, 1783, for 100 acres of land was issued to Venet Tapp 
for three years' service in the Virginia Line. (Book 1, p. 180). 
This without doubt refers to Vincent Tapp, son of Wm. and 
Christian Tapp. 

In his will Vincent Tapp names ten children, and does not 
mention James. For this reason there is a doubt if the James 
included in the list of children below was a son of Vincent and 
Mollie (Jett) Tapp. His name is included, however, on the 
statement of James R. Tapp of Brandy, Culpeper Co., Va. 

Children : 

*13. William, m. Jemima Hopper, dau. of Thos. Hopper. 
14. John, m. 

*15. Vincent, m. Elizabeth Hopper, sister to Jemima. 

*16. Moses, m. Mary Boch.

18. NiMROD, lived in Fauquier Co., 1800. 

19. Elias. 

20. SUCKEY. 

21. Ann, m. Philip Amiss, 1786. 

22. Mollie or Mary. 

22a. Sally. 

9. LEWIS TAPP, wife Ann, in 1768, while residing in Cul- 
peper Co., Va., sold 470 acres of land given him by his father 
William Tapp, Sr., in 1763. This land was probably a wedding 

It is supposed that Lewis followed his brother William to 
North Carolina, as a Lewis Tapp lived in Person Co., N. C. The 
Person County Lewis married Jennie Yancey. It is not known 
to the writer whether Lewis was married twice, or whether there 
were two Lewis Tapps. 

Mrs. Jas. E. Yancey, Roxboro, N. C, granddaughter of the 
Person Co. Lewis says that Lewis had two half brothers, Eli 

The Tapp Family 231 

and George. George Tapp of Person Co., left a large family. 
His relationship to the Virginia family is not known. 

There is a tradition among the descendants of George Tapp 
that he came from Scotland. If this is true and he was a half 
brother to Lewis, they were not of the Culpeper Co. family. 
This tradition is probably erroneous. 

Lewis Tapp of Person Co., N. C, married Jennie Yancey 

and died in 1845. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. 

He had the following: 

Children : 

23. Betsy, m. Joseph Brown. 

24. William, went to Texas. 

25. Charles, went to Texas, m. and left two children: Wil- 

liam, Jennie. 

26. Nancy, m. Timothy Dunnegan, Orange Co., N. C. 

27. Elijah, died single in Henderson Co., Ky. 

28. Polly, m. John Snipes, descendants lived near Hender- 

son, Ky, 

29. John, m. Parthena Harris, or Smith. He and an 

only son were killed in Orange Co. by their own 
negroes in 1845. He left two daughters.

Fourth Generation 

13. WILLIAM TAPP, d. 1823, son of Vincent and Mollie 
(Jett) Tapp, m. Jemima Hopper, dau. of Thos. Hopper*, whose 

*Joshua Hopper married Phebe Moor. He came from England to Mary- 
land and later to Loudoun Co., Va., and later to Washington, Rappahannock 
County. He had the following children: Miriam (b, about 1820) m. Joseph 
Amiss, John, m. Elizabeth Timberlake, Reuben, Joshua, Rebecca, m. Robert 
Tutt, and Phebe. John and Elizabeth (Timberlake) Hopper resided in 
Rappahannock Co., and had the following children : William, Mary A. m. 
Dr. Thos. G. Allen, Virginia E., m. Henry Houser, Almire I., m. Wm. D. 
Timberlake, John Milton, Sarah P., m., L. D. Bowen, Asbury M., Joshua 
T., Harriet T., m. R. H. Leadbeatter, Angelina C, m. James Green, Selina 
O., Alice T., m. W. A. L. Jett and James T., 

232 The Tapp Family 

wife was Mary Ann. She d. 1835. The estate of Wm. Tapp 
was divided among nine of his children, Elijah not being men- 
tioned, the division being confirmed by Court Oct. 20, 1823. His 
estate consisted of 1943 acres of land valued at $20,482.75, sit- 
uated in Culpeper Co., in the vicinity of Amissville, near the 
Rappahannock County Line. His son Armistead Tapp, and 
son-in-law Richard T. Basye were appointed administrators. 
Wm. Tapp died in middle life from the bite of a poisonous snake 
and his widow Jemima lived to be quite old and was an invalid 
many years. She died in 1835, the last years of her life being 
spent with her daughter, Rebecca, wife of James Amiss, who 
remained in Culpepper Co., to whom she left all her property. 

It is not known positively whether this Wm. Tapp was a 
soldier in the Revolutionary War or not. His widow never re- 
ceived a pension. There is no tradition among his descendants 
of such service. His brother Vincent who was younger, was a 
soldier. The Wm. Tapp referred to by Commissioner Smith 
in his report to the Governor in 1835, as being entitled to land 
bounty, may refer to the uncle who had settled in N. C. 

Children : 

*34. Armistead, b. 12-13-1787 ; m. Lucy Dores. 

35. Jemima, m. Richard Dennis, 1823. 

36. Dolly, m. Richard Pinnell. 

37. Rebecca, m. James Amiss. 

38. W. Lewis.

41. Ann, m. Henry Spillman. 

*42. Mary, b. 1800 ; m. R. T. Basye. 

*43. Elijah, m. Mary Griffin. 

The above children all married in Culpeper Co. Rebecca 
remained in that county. Elijah remained in Culpeper Coun- 
ty, and his son named Elijah resided near Amissville in 1907. 
Susan and Mathew Jett were the parents of Peter Jett of Frank- 
fort, Ky., whom the writer (A. D. Cloyd) while a medical stu- 
dent, visited in 1883. 

15. VINCENT TAPP, supposed son of Vincent, 6, married 
Elizabeth Hopper in Culpeper Co., Va. The frequency with which 

The Tapp Family 233 

the name Vincent appears in the different families makes it diffi- 
cult to trace the record of the different ones. From the deed rec- 
ords of Culpeper Co., one would infer that William and Vincent 
sons of Vincent, Sr., married Jemima and Elizabeth Hopper, 
daughters of Thos. Hopper. In 1803 Thos. Hopper deeded land 
to his two sons-in-law Vincent and William Tapp, and in 1815 
Vincent Tapp and wife Elizabeth deeded their share of the 
same land to William Tapp. 

Vincent Tapp, son of Vincent and Mollie (Jett) Tapp, 
was born about 1773, and married Fanny Wright in S. C. 
about 1798, and died in Ripley, Miss., in 1859. It is also claim- 
ed that his mother ]\Iary Tapp accompanied him to S. C, and 
that he was raised by relatives. A copy of the will of Vincent 
Tapp of Culpeper Co., who died in 1790, is preserved in the 
family and is evidence that the first wife Elizabeth Hopper died 
and that he then married Fanny Wright, or that Vincent Tapp 
who married Elizabeth Hopper was not the brother of William 
Tapp who married Jemima Hopper. Vincent Tapp in 1832 
while a resident of Rappahannock Co., Va., was granted a pen- 
sion as a private in the Va. Contentinal Army. He was living 
at the age of 76 in 1840. Vincent Tapp and Fanny Wright had 
the following 

Children :

Other Tapps 

GEORGE TAPP resided in Person Co., N. C, and was twice 
married. His second wife was a Miss Fowler. His relationship 
to others of the name is not known. Tradition has it that he 
and one brother and one sister came from Scotland and finally 
settled in Person Co. Others claim he was half brother to 
Lewis Tapp of Person County. It is most probable that both 
were from the Virginia family. George Tapp, 80 years of age, 
residing in Warren Co., N. C, was pensioned in 1818 as a pri- 
vate in the North Carolina Line. (War Reports 1835.)

William and Vincent and Mrs. Ashby by the first wife and 
all six of the children by the last wife moved to Hopkins and 
Webtser Counties, Ky., in Dec. 1833. They were all married 
and had families at that time. Many of their descendants still 
live in those counties but many have removed to other states. 

The larger part of the Tapp descendants from the above 
families in Western Kentucky, are Baptists, quite a number are 
members of the Christian Church and a few are Methodists, 
Presbyterians, etc., and as far as known only one is a Catholic. 
They are nearly all Democrats, politically. A number of them 
were in the Confederate Army but none in the Union Army.

Brief Sketches of the 

Ingels, Jones, Marshall and 
Smith Families 


James Ingels, a linen weaver, moved from Pennsylvania to 
Kentucky and married Catherine Boone, supposed to have been 
a relative of Daniel Boone. His son James was born 1779, died 
1857, married Elizabeth Ducker who died in 1821, and resided 
near Paris, Ky. The brick house built by him still stands on 
the old homestead about midway between Paris and Lexington, 

Emily Ingels, dau. of James and Elizabeth (Ducker) Ingels, 
was born near Paris, Ky., in 1819, and died in Louisiana, Mo., 
1905. She married Noah Griffith, (b. 1802; d. 1864.) After 
Griffith's death she married his brother John who died and she 
married Dr. Geo. L. Bralley who died April, 1903. 


The will of John James was proven in Spottsylvania Co., 
Va., 4-5-1726. He had witnessed a deed 10-27-1725. 

William James witnessed a deed in Spottsylvania Co., 6-1- 

The estate of James James was administered 4-2-1754 in 
Spottsylvania Co., Va. 

Richard James was paid 400 pounds of tobacco for making 
the sash windows for a church in Bristol Parish in 1724. His 
wife's name seemed to be Mary Elizabeth, as the Bristol Regis- 
ter shows that Elizabeth, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth 
James, was born 2-8-1724 and that Mary, dau. of Richard and 
Mary James was born 1-2-1728. 

George James, wife Mary, died Spottsylvania Co., Va., 1753. 
Their children, Thomas, the oldest son, Mary, Dianah, Joseph, 

Daniel, born 12-6-1748, and Henry. Joseph, and Daniel and 

Henry were minors when their father died and John James was 
their guardian. 


246 Other Families 

Thomas' wife is called Mary in one place and Jenny in an- 
other. Her name was probably Bruce as Margaret Bruce in 
her will dated 7-22-1765, and proven 8-6-1765, mentions Thomas 
James as her brother-in-law and Mary James as her sister. 

Thomas James of Fauquier Co., Va., died 1776. His will 
proven 2-26-1776, mentions daughter Molly who married Mich- 
ael Robinson, Jr., and daughter Agatha who married Richard 
Price. Another Thomas James married Betty, dau. of Michael 
Robinson, Sr., as shown by deed 6-6-1791, in Fauquier, Va. 

JOSEPH JAMES, a resident of Culpeper Co., Va., was 
paid for Indians in 1758. Joseph James, age 68, while residing 
in Scott Co., Ky., in 1818, was granted a pension for services 
in the Va. Line. 

Thomas James, Evan James and Elijah James were Revo- 
lutionary soldiers in the Pa. Army according to Saffel. 

There were five James brothers in the Revolutionary War 
referred to by W. G. Simmons in his life of General Marion, 
who says of them : " No men under Marion were braver and truer 
than these." Their names were John, William, Gavin, Robert, 
and James. They were cousins of Major John James who was 
also in Marion's army. 

Thomas James, born near the Maryland and Virginia line 
7-17-1770, father of William James who married Martha Cloyd 
at Nashville, Tenn., 8-19-1816, is supposed to have been the son 
of one of those five brothers. David Cloyd James, Madison- 
ville, Ky., son of William, is authority for this statement. 

William James accompanied Lord Baltimore to America 
and settled in Virginia. His son, William, married Clarissa 
Smith in Virginia and both of these died in Cannon County, 
Tenn. William, Jr., had two sons, John M., the father of Mrs. 
Hulda Meacham of San Bernardino, Cal., and Robert Stanley, 
the father of James D. James of Joplin, Mo. 

Robert James, the father of the noted James Boys, of Mis- 
souri, was a grandson of the emigrant William James and his 
father was a brother to William, Jr. (Authority John D. James, 
Joplin, Mo.) 

Other Families 247 


BENJAMIN JONES* was born in King William Co., Va., 
Mar. 28, 1754. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. In 
the spring of 1776 he enlisted as a private in Capt. Edward 
Booker's Company in King William County, Va., and served 
three months. In Nov., 1778, he again enlisted in Capt. James 
Shepherd's North Carolina Company, Col. Wm. Brevard, com- 
manding. Dee. 29, 1780, he was appointed Ensign and served 
until Jan., 1782. He was at the Battles of Brier Creek, Kings 
Mountain and Eutaw Springs. He was pensioned for this ser- 
vice in 1832 while a resident of Stokes Co., N. C, where he died 
in 1833. 

Dr. Aquilla Jones, son of Benjamin Jones of Stokes Co., 
N. C, married Mrs. Lettie (Hooperf) Cooke at Nashville, Tenn- 
essee, April 18, 1798. He removed to Howard Co., Missouri, 

*A Benjamin Jones died in Stokes Co., N. C. in 1828, aged 99 years. He 
had a son named Aquilla, and his youngest son Benjamin, who was born in 
1776, left N C. prior to 1831 and died in Indiana, 4-9-1865. His wife, Mary 
Jones, died 8-12-1842, aged 63. His son Aquilla, b. in Stokes Co., N. C. in 
1811, was elected State Treasurer for Indiana in 1856, was Postmaster at 
Indianapolis under Cleveland and died 1907. His son Aquilla Q. is a promi- 
nent attorney of Indianapolis and his daughter, Mrs, Emma Holloway, 
resides at Santa Paula, California. There appears to have been two Benja- 
min Jones of Stokes Co., N. C, each having a son named Aquilla. The 
Aquilla who married Lettie Cooke in 1798 and removed to Glasgow, Howard 
Co., Mo., could not have been an older brother to Benjamin Jones who died 
in Indiana in 1865. Aquilla died in 1883 and must have been quite young 
when he married in 1798, while Benjamin was born in 1776. 

There appears to be a relation existing between the Indiana and Mis- 
souri families. Aquilla Q. Jones, of Indiana, visited Dr. Aquilla Jones, of 
Glasgow, Mo. in 1838, and it has been generally understood that the two 
were related. 

The North Carolina Census Keport for 1790, Vol. 26, contains the names 
of the following Jones' who were heads of families in Stokes Co. 

Aquilla, William, Gabriel, Joshua, Benjamin, Quiler, Richard, Phillip 
and Robert. 

It also gives an Aquilla Jones in Chatham Co., and Randolph Co., and 
i>enjamin Jones in Rowan County.

borough, N. C, age 49. Was a delegate to the Continental Congress 1774-

in 1818, settling on a farm about five miles south of Glasgow. 
He died about 1883, and with his wife is buried on the old 
homestead. A substantial stone wall forms an enclosure erected 
by W. W. Cloyd of Fayette, Missouri, acting under instructions 
from John Lee Jones, the youngest child. 

While primarily a doctor of medicine, his preaching pro- 
clivities held him in the class of local preachers in the M. E. 
church which meant more in pioneer days than later and his 
rugged eloquence moved many an audience. When called as 
a physician he would often perform the religious service of 
baptism on the same visit. He kept a record of his cases show- 
ing name of patient, supposed malady, remedy applied and re- 
sults of treatment. This record he bound in book form in a 
cover of sheepskin from his own flock. This homespun volume 
tells more plainly of a life of honesty and carefulness than the 
words of any admirer. The hymn book he used is in the pos- 
session of Mrs. Maggie (Richardson) Stamper of Moberly, Mis- 
souri, daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth (Cloyd) Richardson of Salis- 
bury, Missouri.

* James A. Sanderson, Bowling Green, Mo., writing in 1905 said: "The 
Ham family was raised in Alabama. Mr. Ham, wife and their children came 
to Va. on account of Mrs. Ham's health. He left his plantation and negroes 
in the care of an overseer and settled in the mountains uear Lynchburg, Va. 
His two daughters married John and Austin JSmith. Meckey or Mecha 
married John, and Catherine married Austin. The mother died. Mr. Ham 
and his son Yancey went back to Alabama. Yancey died before he married. 
Mr. Ham married again and his wife had four children. He died some- 
time about 1840, leaving a will giving all his property to the last four 
children. John Smith went to see about their interests and found a will in 
favor of the four children by his last wife. He employed counsel and 
brought suit for an equal division, or to break the will, and it was broken 
and an equal division of the land w^as made between the six children and 
the negores were divided. The money was not in sight. He was said to have 
been a very wealthy man. Mrs. Ham's maiden name was Yancey, related to 
the Yanceys of the South. Her father was doubtless in the Eevolutionary 
War. I have no dates of their births or deaths, except John Smith's wife, 
Mecha, and that was taken from grave stones. ' ' 

Mrs. Mattie Smith, daughter of Andrew Jackson Smith, relates that 
John and Austin Smith met the Ham sisters while the latter were spending 
the summer at some Springs in Virginia.
