died in Revolutionary War

John served in the Revolutionary War from Amherst Co., VA
and died at Valley Forge, PA. In the Amherst County Court Records, widow Mary Burnett received supplies for the service of her husband John.

Prominent Part Played In Revolutionary War By Soldiers From Amherst County, Virginia By: Amherst New-Era Progress/ Bi-Centennial Edition October 12, 1961 Amherst County got its name from a hero - the hero of Ticonderoga, Sir Geoffrey (Jeffrey) Amherst.

The county was formed in 1761 from Albemarle County. Sir Geoffrey was appointed English-Governor-General of Virginia but never actively engaged in his duties for reasons unknown. Probably the earliest known facts about the county can be found in accounts of the prominent part the soldiers from Amherst County played in the Revolutionary War.

On January 10, 1776, the Patriot Convention, called to cope with the situation arising from revolutionary bloodshed in the eastern part of the State, passed an �ordinance for raising and additional number of forces for the protection and defense of the colony� under which Amherst County was required to furnish one company of experienced riflemen, consisting of One captain, two lieutenants, in ensign and 74 noncommissioned officers and privates to be �ready for orders by the 25th of March, 1776.� The man who headed this company of expert riflemen was a young brave soldier who left the campus of the College of William and Mary to recruit soldiers from the county. He was Samuel Jordan Cabell, eldest son of Colonel William Cabell of �Union Hill.� Colonel Cabell was at that time serving on the safety committee in Richmond and it was he who sent for his son to muster a company from Amherst.

Serving with Captain Cabell�s company were many men whose names have continued prominent in the county�s progress during its 200 years of existence. The following served as officers: Samuel Jordan Cabell, captain; Alexander Ross, first lieutenant; Benjamin Taliaferro, second lieutenant; James Barnett, ensign. Noncommissioned officers were John Jordan, cadet; James Dillard, Jr., sergeant; Mathew Smoot, fifer.

Of the privates named James Becknal, John Burnet and Reuben Nevill were killed or died in the service and William Smith was discharged at the close of the year 1776. It took Captain Cabell and his small company 12 days to get to Williamsburg, arriving there March 24, 1776. His company was assigned to the Sixth Virginia Regiment. The Cabell family, descendants of which still live in Amherst and Nelson Counties. Nelson being a part of Amherst at that time) took an important role in the part Amherst played in the Revolutionary War. Nicholas Cabell, youngest brother of Colonel William Cabell, was elected captain of the minute men companies from Amherst County.

The Minute Men companies were formed in accordance with an ordinance passed by the Patriot Convention requiring that a �battalion of minute men be organized in each district to drill twice a year with the said drills to commence on the 15th of May and the 26th of October, and the battalion to continue in regular service and training under their adjutant for 20 successive days.� Amherst County�s minute men were a part of the Buckingham district which was composed of Buckingham, Amherst, Albemarle and East Augusta counties. Minute men from these counties first met on November 17, 1775 and training until December 6 th of that year were kept in

Probably no other county in the state of Virginia furnished as large a percentage of its manhood to fight for the United States in the Revolutionary War as did Amherst County which when included Nelson County.

Cove Cemetary - Located in Madison County, Arkansas, approximately 15 miles South of Huntsville, Arkansas on Highway 23, then on dirt road East appx 4 miles. It is fenced in and kept up nicely. Several Tombstones of Burnetts can be seen there.

Camp Meeting Graveyard - Located in the North part of Crawford County, Arkansas, about 2 miles South of Washington County line on the West bank of Lee's Creek at the ford which is just below where Blackburn ford runs into Lee's Creek. It is not fenced and has not been used for burying since late 1800's. It is approximately 3 miles North of the Bryant Graveyard and contains 35-50 graves. (This information was obtained from records of J. A. Burnett who did research in the 1920's and 1930's on the Burnett family history). I know of one person who has tried to find this graveyard recently and couldn't find it.

It is almost due West of Camp Meeting Graveyard near the foot of the Boston Mountains, on old Bryant Farm. The West part of the graveyard was used for Negros and slaves. (This information was obtained from records of J. A. Burnett, I believe this graveyard has been found.

Witter Cemetary - Located 12 miles South of Huntsville, Arkansas, Highway 23 South.

Looking for ancestors of John Oliver b. abt 1760 in VA , lived in Roane Co. TN in early 1800's then moved to
Washington Co. AR before 1830. John was married to Julia ? and died before 1840. I have a hunch that he
might be connected to the Olivers that came out of Caroline Co. VA and I also believe that they lived in Jones Co. NC for awhile before leaving to Roane Co. TN

I'm not sure if there is any Oliver connections or not, but in the 1800s, there were a lot of families from the Whitley Co. KY and Campbell Co., TN area who moved to Crawford Co. and Washington County

OLIVER JOHN Washington 32 14N 32W 40 1839/09/20

John Oliver and his family resided primarily in Roane Co. TN. They were they early enough to be involved in the war of 1812. John's birthplace is supposedly VA according to Goodspeed's write up.

MOSES FISHER (JAMES LYLE, THOMAS, SAM, JOHN, RICHARD, STEPHEN, LUNES, BARON) was born July 22, 1805 in Union Co. ILL, and died Bet. 1882 - 1887 in Florence, Williamson Co. TX. He married (1) LUCY ANN SHAVER August 02, 1835 in Union Co. ILL, daughter of JOHN OLIVER. She was born 1808 in Union Co. ILL, and died Bet. 1837 - 1839 in Crawford Co. AR.

Evidence for the family of Richard Elkins:

1767 - The 1767 Tax List for Pittsylvania County, Virginia, shows Ralph Elkin Jr., Richard Elkin Jr., Nathaniel Elkin, Jesse Elkin, and James Elkin of Leatherwood.

1779 - A survey of Henry County, Virginia dated on June 10 by John Dickinson for Richard Elkins. Ralph and Jesse are on the New River. (Source: research of Carol Stultz, 1777 Botetourt County, Virginia Tax List by William Ingles, Volume X, December 1966, a periodical)

1783 - The 1783 Census/Tax List of Washington County, Virginia shows a J. Elkins with one white male above 21, 3 horses, 6 cattle; J. Elkins with one white male above 21, 2 horses, 6 cattle; R. Elkins with one white male above 21, 1 horse, 7 cattle; Drury Elkins with one white male above 21, 11 cattle. (Source: research of Carol Stultz lists Elkins Eagle, published by Clovis Byars, Volume III, Number 3, September 1988, page 88)

1783 - Richard is listed on the purchase of 179 acres on a court plea with William Whithers, and the land is deeded to him in 1789. The deed may have been an estate settlement. Back in 1750 a Samuel Withers died leaving an estate. His wife, Sarah Withers, was named executor with a John Elkins signing as security. John may have married Samuel and Sarah Withers' daughter. Sarah may have died in 1772 when the suit against William Withers and Richard Elkins of Montgomery-Washington County, Virginia is dated. It may be possible that William and Richard were cousins and Samuel and Sarah were their grandparents. This may have been a settlement of the property that belongs to Samuel and Sarah. John Elkins may have been married to a Withers, and this couple may have been the parents of Richard Elkins. (Source: research of Carol Stultz)

1787 - The 1787 Tax List of Montgomery County, Virginia shows a Richard Elkins, July 7, 1787, with 2 white titheables, 2 horses, 4 cattle; Archibald Elkins, September 10, 1787, no white titheables, 1 black, 3 horses, 15 cattle.

282. *William Robert Leslie ^

Leslie, Ruth Cleveland. 1956. Lesley Leslie: A History of 200 Years in America. Washington, D.C.: Courant Press, Inc. This book includes some background on Scottish origins of Leslie family, but it is primarily a history of the many descendants of William Robert Leslie, who emigrated from Dublin, Ireland to America in 1755 with his brother John, and settled in western Virginia.

170. William Robert LESLIE (48) was born in 1730 in Ireland. He died in 1822 in Pike County, Kentucky. He was married to Elizabeth BUCHANAN in 1755 in , MONTGOMERY CO., VIRGINIA.

171. Elizabeth BUCHANAN was born about 1735 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Children were:
85 i. Rebecca Nancy LESLIE.
I have some information on a Leslie family, with a McGuire connection. My branch of the Leslie family is descended from William Robert Leslie, who came to the United States in 1757. My line goes as follows: William
Robert Leslie, who married Elizabeth Buchanan. They had four children. One of them, Robert Leslie( b. Oct. 25, 1765), married Elizabeth Compton of Leesburg, Va. My narrative mentions his nephew, William McGuire.
Robert and Elisabeth had a daughter named Esther, but my narrative says she died unmarried.
There is a later Esther, daughter of Robert's son Pharmer (b. 1803) and Mary Bevins.
William Robert Lesley b.1729 Dublin Ireland.
Died in 1802 Floyd Co. Ky (became Pike Co).
Served in Lord Dunmore's War in 1774. Served in Rev. War in Militia from Montgomery Co. VA. Married Elizabeth Buchanan that was born in Philadelphia Pa. Children are John b. Oct 23, 1760 Robert b Oct 25,
1763, Elizabeth b.??? Nancy b.1770's married John McGuire
Nancy had two children William and Nancy
Hope this helps and I would like to have any info that you have.

I am searching for information on the line from William Robert Leslie who's son Robert Leslie married Esther ? and they had several children, one of them, Nancy Leslie who married a John McGuire. They had two children, William and Nancy. John McGuire died ? and Nancy married a second time to a Richard Elkins.
I am interested in any information on this Leslie Family and the McGuire Family that Nancy married into. I have no dates to go by except I know it was before 1800.

From the Families of Floyd Co., Ky page 248:
William Robert Leslie and family migrated from Fifewhire, Scotland in 1722, buried in Pike County, formerly Floyd.

From "The Big Sandy Valley" by Ely, p. 211: In early days when the plank in the upper Johns Creek country was sawed by hand, and used as fast as sawed, William Leslie d. at the age of 73 years, and no plank could be procured to make a cofffin to bury him in. Nor could a whipsaw be procured to saw enough. His relatives and friends were determined to give him a decent burial; so they had a nice poplar tree cut down and chopped off a log of proper length, squared it up, and with ax and adze, shaped it into a coffin, digging out a trough. They took clapboards and shaved them, with which they made a nice lid for the trough-like casket; and in this unique case the remains of William Leslie of Johns Creek were consigned to mother earth."

From Families of Floyd Co., p. 48: When Leslie and Mcguire, (Grandson William, son of daughter Nancy and John McGuire) first came to Johns Creek, in Floyd Co., and now Pike Co., the first lived in a hollow Sycamore tree that was 10 feet or more in diameter while they built a small log cabin. Thus the name Sycamore Creek. William Robert brought his family to Johns Creek in 1802, 12 years later.

Thomas Patton May, the third child of Thomas May and Dorcas Patton (May) was married to Elizabeth Margery Leslie on Johns Creek on March 4, 1841. She was the great granddaughter of William Robert Leslie, who established the first settlement on Johns Creek (in present-day Pike County) prior to 1790.[4] William Robert was buried in a hollow poplar log which is located on a farm once owned by Garland Hurt, a grandson of Thomas P. May. A marker of this grave is visible on a hill beside a Pike County golf course now located on the farm at Gulnare. Thomas P. May was a Methodist Minister for 60 years and was a trustee of Snively Chapel, located near his home on Johns Creek.

"His, Richard Elkins' son Archibald, who married a Miss Gillespie of Tazell.... ibid-54,55) "Richard Elkins of Montgomery also came and settled near the big island on Island Creek....he was the father of a large family; his sons were Archibald (above), JAMES who married his cousin a daughter of Zachariah Elkins of Hewitt, ROBERT married the widow of Edward McDonald, who was formerly a Miss Harvey, ISRAEL who married a daughter of William Browning; Richard Jr. who married a Miss May; and Edie and Harvey, whose wives are unknown.

William Robert Lesley was born and raised in Scotland. He traveled to America with his brother John but they were separated upon arrival in New York and were never reunited. William Robert Lesley migrated west to the Big Sandy Valley Circa 1795-1800 and settled on Johns Creek in Pike County Kentucky. His wife Elizabeth died prior to the trip but, he was accompanied by his son and daughter in-law Robert and Elizabeth. Their ten children also made the trip to Pike County. Robert and Elizabeth had 5 more children after they moved to the Big Sandy area making 15 (fifteen) in all. Their children were Hannah, Elizabeth, Adah, Allen, Rachel, Jemima, Cynthia, Esther, Milton, Harvey, Pharmer, Amos, Naomi, Martin, Luna. John Lesley never accompained his father, Robert, to Kentucky and he and his wife Martha lived on the family farm in Virginia until about 1828 and then joined the family on Johns Creek in Pike County Kentucky. William Robert Lesley and both of his sons, John and Robert, served in the Revolutionary War. Robert being only 15 at the time was stationed at home and guarded the forts located there. Son John served with the George Rodgers Clark expedition to Illinois. William Robert Lesley died in 1802 and is buried at Johns Creek. Submitted by Patricia Clark who's husband is the gggggrandson of William Robert Lesley and Elizabeth Buchanan.

There are 2 large and very thorough American genealogical studies of descendants of Leslies from Ireland who settled in the South. Leslie-Lesley by Ruth Cleveland Leslie was privately printed in 1956 by the Currant Press of Washington, D.C. It deals with the descendants of William Robert Lesley who left Dublin in 1755. Arriving in New York, he had several misadventures. Thereupon he moved to Pennsylvania and married there. Soon after, he and his wife joined a group of Ulster Scot settlers which made its was down to Augusta County, Virginia. In due course, they established their home in what became Tazewell County, Virginia.

In a brochure "All the Best in Eastern KY" published by the City of Pikeville 1997, on page 25 it is stated: "Floyd Co,: The earliest permanent settlement was in the early 1790's by William Robert Leslie". page 41, Pike Co.: The earliest known permanent settler in the county was that of the William Robert Lesley family who settled at the mouth of what is now Sycamore Creek on lower John's Creek in 1790." Because of the location of the settlement I think this might be an ancestor of Allen Lesley. However, It states in Tress May Francis's May book that Margery Elizabeth Leslie was born in Portsmouth

"Mary Adkins is the mother of Jacob Adkins, who married Phoebe Bradshaw. There are seve ral stories about the marriage of Mary Adkins and Jacob __________. We are not sure what his last name is. Some say it is Harley. However, it seems to be a fact that he was sent to America as a tax collector for the crown. They had seven children. Mary's brothers did not like him and fought with him. He wa supposed to be the son of an English Earl - the Early o f Oxford. Soem people called him Jacob Oxford, but that was not his name. When the revoluti onary war arose, he was called back to England and he did not take Mary and their children wi th him. He never returned to America. When he died he left some money for Mary and the chil dren, but they would have had to go to England and present their claim for it, so they never received anything. Mary raised her family alone and they all turned out to be good people . The children all took their mother's name ADKINS."

This Royal Line theory comes from the family oral tradition that Mary lived common law with a descendant of the Earl of Oxford. According to the tradition, he deserted Mary and her children during the Revolutionary War and returned to England. Because the family name of the person that held the title 'Earl of Oxford' during the mid 1700s was Harley it was assumed by almost all researchers that this man's name was Jacob Harley. Mary Adkins is buried in an unmarked grave on Beech Fork at the mouth of Bowen's Creek.

Mary ADKINS had the following children:
+30 i. David ADKINS.
31 ii. Mark ADKINS was born in 1756 in Halifax County, Virginia. He died. Cause of death was hanging by the Americans for being a traitor. He served in the military. Fought in the Revolutionary War for the English.
+32 iii. Christena ADKINS.
+33 iv. Jacob ADKINS.
+34 v. Sherrod ADKINS.
+35 vi. Nancy ADKINS.
36 vii. John ADKINS.

From Adkins Family History: "Mary d ca 1814-20 in Cabell Co. She is buried in an unmarked gr ave on Beech Fork at the mouth of Bowen's Creek.
She settled in land that was granted to her oldest son David for his service in the Revolutio n. David himself settled in what is today Lawrence Co. Kentucky on land that he also had bee n granted for Revolutionary service.
On Ancestor Chart of Virginia Pierce, it lists Mary Adkins as born 5 Sep 1735 in Cabell Co. , Virginia

286. William Bradshaw ^

From the Personal records of Teddie Anne Driggs - "Annie".
It is always the responsibility of the individual researcher to investigate stories & claims of lineage.

William Bradshaw was born about 1747 in or near Amelia County, Virginia. The names of his parents are not known, but his father's name was probably also William, since he is twice referred to as William Bradshaw, Jr. In the 1763 tax list of Nottoway Parish in Amelia County, there is a household of a William Bradshaw that paid three tithes (i.e., taxes for three adult white males in the same household): (1) William Bradshaw, (2) William Bradshaw, Jr., and (3) John Bradshaw. (Our William would have been entering adulthood at about that time and is probably
living in the same household as his father William. John may have been his brother or an uncle. There was a John Bradshaw in Amelia County at that same time who was married to Margaret Clemmons. This John, a son of
John Bradshaw and Anne Hamblin, had an older brother William, who was born 9 June 1719 in Bristol Parish, Prince George County, Virginia. Perhaps this William (b. 1719) is the father of our William. There is not a separate listing for a John Bradshaw in this tax list for 1763. See Virginia notes (Rich Text Format; 16 KB; 10 Jan 1999) for Bradshaws in the early tax lists of Amelia County.) The other mention of William Bradshaw, Jr. is in Court Order Book 1 (1767-1772) of Pittsylvania County, Virginia, page 131. On 29 July 1769, shortly after arriving in Pittsylvania County (see below), William Bradshaw, Jr., was sued by William Young. (The case was dismissed.) William Bradshaw was married about 1767 near Amelia Co., Virginia to Susannah Hutcheson. She was born about 1748 in Amelia County, Virginia and was the daughter of Charles Hutcheson and Sarah Estes. Apparently William Bradshaw was not in favor with Mr. Hutcheson. In the will of Charles Hutcheson (Amelia Co., VA Will Book 2, p. 262, dated 24 February 1768), it says that Susannah is to receive her share if her husband predeceases her. If he [William] is still living, her share is to be divided amongst the other heirs. Charles Hutcheson died in January 1769. On 15 February 1769, a land survey was recorded in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia for William Bradshaw for 172 acres "on the Waters of Snow Creek" (in a part of Pittsylvania County that was broken off into Henry County around 1777 and then into what is now Franklin County in 1785). William and his family moved there, and Susannah's mother Sarah (Estes) Hutcheson also purchased 320 acres along Snow Creek by 1772.

William and Susannah Bradshaw had at least four children: Phoebe, Charles, Susannah, and Moses. There were several other Bradshaws in Franklin County in the 1790s, but their connection to this family has not yet been established. Susannah appears in the Henry County tax list in her name in 1784, so William had either died or divorced by that time. Susannah appears in the Franklin County tax lists through 1799, but her whereabouts after that time are not known. (Some researchers have concluded that she was remarried to Henry Adkins in Franklin
County, Virginia on 29 May 1790. Since she appears as "Susannah Bradshaw" in the tax lists from 1784 through 1799, I believe that it was probably her daughter Susannah who married Henry Adkins.)

Phoebe Bradshaw (daughter of William and Susannah) was born between 1767 and 1771, either in Amelia or Pittsylvania County, Virginia. She married in 1791 in Franklin County to Jacob Adkins. They moved to Montgomery (now Giles) County, Virginia shortly afterwards and then to Cabell Co., [West] Virginia by 1804. Wayne County, [West] Virginia was formed from Cabell County in 1842. Phoebe died there in 1862; Jacob in 1857. They had eight children: Elizabeth, Nancy, Charles, Jacob, Hiram, Mary E., Lydia Eveline, and Lewis. The Adkins Chronicles web page contains a lot of information about this family.

Charles Bradshaw was born on 6 January 1769. (This was the same month in which his grandfather Charles Hutcheson's will was probated in Amelia County, Virginia and about six weeks before the date of William
Bradshaw's land survey in Pittsylvania County. The place of Charles Bradshaw's birth was probably in either of those two counties.) He married in 1790 in Franklin County, Virginia to Hannah Bates, a daughter of John Bates. Charles and Hannah moved from Franklin County, Virginia to Madison County, Kentucky around 1806. Between 1812 and 1818, they moved to Cabell County, [West] Virginia, where they remained until at least until the early 1830s. By 1832, they had moved again, this time to Edgar County, Illinois. Charles died there in 1843; Hannah in 1844. They had eight children: Nancy, John, William, James Skelton, Charles Lewis, Jeremiah, Elias, and Susan.

Susannah Bradshaw married in 1790 in Franklin County, Virginia to Henry Adkins. (I assume that Susannah is a daughter of William Bradshaw and Susannah Hutcheson.) Nothing more is known about Henry Adkins or his
wife Susannah.

Moses Bradshaw was born about 1774 in Pittsylvania (now Franklin) County, Virginia. He married in 1798 in Franklin County to Sarah Bates (a sister of Charles Bradshaw's wife Hannah Bates). They moved from
Franklin County, Virginia to Rockcastle County, Kentucky between 1805 and 1810. By 1813, they went to Cabell County, [West] Virginia, where they remained at least until 1820. They were living in Kanawha County,
[West] Virginia by 1829 and remained there at least until 1834. By 1837, they had moved again to Edgar County, Illinois (where his brother Charles was living). Around 1850, Moses moved his family from Illinois to Mahaska County, Iowa, where they lived for a short time until moving to Putnam County, Missouri around 1852. Moses died there around the beginning of 1859, his wife Sarah having preceded him in death between 1850 and 1859, presumably in Putnam County, Missouri. Moses and Sarah had seven children: Delilah, Daniel, Isaac, Jane, William, John Henry, and Elizabeth.

The Dutch Settlement on Abbotts Creek
By Betty Sowers
The Dutch Settlement on on Abbotts Creek, A History of Pilgrim Reformed United Church of Christ was written copyrighted in 1979 by Rev. James Everette Neese of Lexington, N.C. The The following Foreward was written
by Betty Sowers, Co-Editor.
The Dutch Settlement on Abbots Creek, is the story of one of Davidson County's earliest churches. The Rev. J. Everette Neese, minister of the church, has carefully researched and documented the history of this 222 year-old German Reformed Church and its founders from their beginning in Europe to their emigration to Pennsylvcania and finally their journey down the Great Wagon Road to the banks of Abbotts Creek.
Writing with interest and authority, Mr. Neese tells of the struggles of the early colonists to found their homes and church in the wilderness and of their life in the early years of the settlement. There are chapters on the growth of the church; one of the founding fathers, Valentine Leonard, a Revolutionary War patriot; the Pilgrim Academy; the
break between the Reformed and Lutherans which resulted in the founding of Pilgrim Lutheran Church; and biographies of ministers who served Pilgrim.
The history is a thorough one, telling of all phases in church life--the music, the traditions and customs, the Bicentennial celebration, the role of blacks in the life of Pilgrim, and personal recollections by church members. There are interesting chapters on the unusual pierced tombstones in Pilgrim cemetery that are an example of folk art unique to Davidson County, and a list of all the recorded burials in Pilgrim Cemetery.
Dirk Werle said:
There isn't a great deal that I know about the Werles except what I heard through family lore. My folks, (incl. myself) were from Germany, but that was not the origin of the family name. It's Hugenotte, and the (French) "Werli"'s at the time were mainly trades people who did not necessarily adhere to the policies and rules laid out by the French (Catholic!) kings. So most of the Hugenottes, incl. the Werlis, were kicked out of France after the edict of Nantes (I believe) and followed the call of the Prussian Kings who were looking for good trade folks. Protestant or Catholoic, they couldn't care less. So there was a lot of migration going on: Eastward Ho! The first 'foot-lame' (my grandfather's words, not mine) W's got stuck in the Reformist centres along the eastern border of France, e.g. Strassbourg and Geneva, and there are still concentrations of W's in those regions today. The W' with the stronger hiking boots made they way further East and eventually settled. In southern Germany and Switzerland, many W's actually spell their name "Wehrle, Werli, or Wehrli". I don't really know how many of them actually made it to the Prussian heartland. Some of us obviously weren't too impressed with their choices either, and later hop skipped and jumped across the Atlantic... Sounds familiar? Anyone with history to add please email it to and I will add it to this document.

This is the only thing I found where Pete had check out about the ships

a English line, and we do definately know our Worleys were German line.
Don't know if this helps or just makes it more confusing.

The Zinck family migrated from the war torn Germany in the early 1700's. The areas of Baden, Wuerttemberg and Bavaria had many people with the name "Zincke, Zinckh, Zink". Three Zinck brothers are listed in the 1790 US census. Early German immigrants ported the US in Pennslyvania, through Lancaster Co., onto Frederick, Md. down the Shenandoah Valley to about Roanoke, Va. Out of Virginia on the Old Carolina Road through the Maggoty Gap and then toward Salem and into Rowan (now Davidson) County. It is believed that the earliest settlements were in the area between Abbotts Creek and Leonard's Creek. Now know as Old Pilgram Church. Jacob sailed to America on the Richard & Mary and was qualified on Monday Sept. 30, 1754 in Philadelphia, PA. A deed dated Jan. 27, 1763 by Henry McCulloch, Esq. to Jacob Zinck, Rowan Co., NC was the beginning of the Sink roots in what is now Davidson County. Deed Bk.#5, page 251.

Notes from Ted Gose, 11/99:

The Spracher name is also seen to be spelled "Sprecher" and "Spraker". The "Spraker" spelling appears to be the one that was eventually settled on (at least in the Cripple Creek area) since that is the spelling used on all of the family gravestones after 1830.

Please note that there may be another child of Johann and Maria Sprecher named Anna Catherine, born about 1737 and who married a John Henry Shoaf in Rowan County, NC. Don't know if this is right, but this could lead to more confusion.

Not certain if the sources I have cited for the birth, marriage and death dates or locations have actually confirmed these dates with historical documents.
Etthan Miller's tombstone survey of the cemetary at Zion Church in Cripple Creek does not list any burials earlier than 1802. However, numerous graves in the Zion Cemetery have tombstones so weathered that they are unreadable and many other tombstones may have almost totally weathered
into small pieces. Stephen Sr. is said to be buried in the Zion Cemetery but his gravestone has not been found either. Catharine may be buried in the Zion Cemetery in an unidentifiable grave as well. One of Catharine and Elizabeth Sprecher's brothers, Christopher, also relocated to Cripple Creek and
lived near the Stephen Gose family. Christopher (Stophel) Sprecher (Spraker) was one of the appraisers for Stephen's estate when he died in 1799.
Christopher Sprecher died in 1830 and appears to be the first of many "Sprakers" to be buried in the Zion Cemetery at Cripple Creek.

338. Ambrose Barcroft ?

First Generation
Ambrose BARCROFT, the ancestor of most of the Barcrofts in America was the eldest son of Thomas Barcroft of Foulridge and Noyna in Colne, Lancashire, England. On the maternal side he was the grandson of Robert LEIGH of Southfield, Colne. The register of the ancient parish of Saint Bartholomew, Colne, contains the record of his baptism, "Ambrose son of Thomas Barcroft of Noonee," on April 12, 1681.
The tuition bond which was filed at Chester in 1696, by his father, contains the categoric mention of the child's late grandfather for whom he was named, "Ambrose Barcroft of Colne." This bond gave legal promise that Ambrose was to be "well and honestly" educated and brought up, and that he should inherit the child's portion due him from the estate of his grandfather, Ambrose of the Foulridge and Noyna branch.
Thus, with provision for his education made doubly sure, heir by birth to the peculiar privileges of the eldest son of an ancient and honorable English family, Ambrose Barcroft's youth was probably uneventful. After the lapse of more than two hundred years the varied circumstances of his life are known to us only through official records.
The court rolls of the Manor of Colne afford glimpses of his movements which suggest a restlessness not in keeping with family traits as apparent in others of the name, as will be seen by his absences from home and finally by his far journeys. These rolls note the normal beginnings, the usual obligatons of a "feoffee to uses" in Colne Manor, and in association with a certain John Blakey whose name, or one of the family, appears on the Colne Court rolls with Ambrose's grandfather thirty years before.
In connection with the estate of John Malham of Colne, under date April 19, 1710, Ambrose is designated "of Foulridge Hall," on June 28, 1711, "of Deptford, co. Kent," and on July 16, 1716, he had gone as far as Canterbury, co. Kent. Previous to this, he had given his power of attorney in turn to his brothers John and Thomas of Foulridge. And in November, 1720 when there was a question of the surrender of certain lands belonging to the Blakey estate, and Ambrose's co-feoffee was declared deceased, he also was recorded "pariter defuncti,"--likewise deceased.
But the court sitting at Colne in October, 1725, was called upon to enroll the following declaration, which gives the most unmistakable testimony as to where Ambrose Barcroft had gone. The date, 12 July 1723, shows that two years had elapsed after the paper had been executed before it was enrolled. It reads as follows:
" Know all men by these presents That I Ambrose Barcroft of Solebury in the County of Bucks in the province of Pensilvania gentl' surviving feoffee in trust to Edward Knowles late of Colne decd...apoint my trusty and well beloved bror John Barcroft of Colne in the county of Lancaster and Kingdom of England my true and lawfull Attorney for me and in my name to alien...and give up...all ye right etc. of me the said Ambrose Barcroft of in & unto one messuage in Colne called Kingshead etc. To the use of behoof of Richard Stephenson of Colne."
The time of Ambrose's departure from England is unknown, but the parish registers of Lancashire give dates which shed some light on parts of his life. The register of Whalley Parish for the year 1702 contains the record of his marriage to Maria WALSHAM of Whalley on 23 June 1702. The registers also record that two sons were born to this marriage, William and Ambrose, and that Mary (Maria) was buried on 5 May 1705 in Colne parish.
Two of these entries on the registers place Ambrose Barcroft at Foulridge Hall, and one of the court rolls gives his residence there as late as 1710. These records of Lancashire are supplemented in a very remarkable and striking manner by public records of the Province of Pennsylvania.
A deed he received for land he purchased in Solebury Township, Bucks County, PA on 8 June 1723 indicates his whereabouts in the interim of 1705-1723. The deed describes him as "Ambrose Barcroft of Talbot County in the province of Maryland, gentleman." A search of the Maryland Archives by Emma Runk failed to shed any additional light on the date or length of time he may have been a resident of Maryland.
Ambrose Barcroft was commissioned justice of the peace for Bucks County on 4 Jan 1722. In colonial times this appointment carried with it the continuity of the judicial power in the office of Judge of the Court of Quarter Sessions, and it may have been in the course of the discharge of his public duties as Justice of the Peace that Ambrose Barcroft met his death. The record of it sets forth the fact "that by drowning and misfortune" he died. More fully the statement reads, "The said Ambrose Barcroft the twentieth day of December in company with his son Ambrose Barcroft about thirty miles from Solebury...Rideing through one of the branches of the Delaware river then and there by reason of the stumbling of the horse whereon the said Ambrose the father then rode, the said Ambrose the father fell from the horse aforesaid into the said river. By means whereof he the said Ambrose the father was then and there instantly Drowned." The inquistion post mortem was held on Christmas day, 1724, at Solebury, Pennsylvania.
Having married and lost his first wife before leaving Foulridge, Lancashire, he married a second time, presumably in Pennsylvania, place and time unknown. Only the wife's first name -- Elizabeth -- is known. One son was born of this marriage, John Barcroft.
Ambrose died intestate and on 29 Dec 1724, his widow Elizabeth, renounced her right to administer the estate and on 21 Apr 1725 letters of administraton were granted to the son Ambrose Barcroft. Elizabeth Barcroft next appears in the county records on an application for a marriage license which was granted to "Charles MORGAN of the county of Bucks and the province of Pennsylvania and Elizabeth Barcroft of the same county and province, widow." This license was granted on 21 Sep 1727. She was still living in April 1743 when her son Ambrose gave a mortgage on the paternal lands at Solebury but nothing additional is known of her.
