H.R.-
You wrote that you had a book with information concerning the PA
Worthingtons., "I do have some information on the Worthingtons that
entered Chester Co., PA from a book on the history of that County.
Being a Worthington AND lived in Chester Co., I was very interested.
Have not found the connection, within the US between the two lines."
Does the book contain information relating to the family Robert "Bobby"
Dunblean Worthington?  This is the line that I am following.  As I
understand it Bobby, son of Samuel Worthington, was b. abt. 1717 in a
part of Delaware, which is today in Chester Co., PA.  He died in May,
1788, in Westmoreland Co., PA.
     As I understand it this line began with Robert Worthington, b. abt. 1663
in Quarrey Bank, Pownall Fee, Cheshire, England and d. in 1735,
Patuxent, Anne Arundel Co., MD.
     "Robert Worthington was persecuted for his religion, and aided in part
by a collection  made up for him by the Morely Monthly Meeting, Robert and
Alice Left Quarrey Bank  (England) and emigrated from Morley MM,
Cheshire, England, to Ballignehee, Kings  Co., Ireland, in 1695.
Between 1695 and 1697 they moved to Ballinakill, a small village in
County West Meath, in Ireland.  In 1711 they moved to Dublin and on June
23, 1713, he and Alice requested a letter from Dublin NM to Friends in
Pennsylvania.  Robert's eldest son, Samuel, migrated to Salem, New
Jersey, in 1712.  Robert and Alice followed their son on July 26, 1714,
where they presented their certificate to Salem MM New Jersey.
     In 1722 Robert Worthington was dismissed by the Salem Meeting to the
Philadelphia  Meeting and moved his family to the vicinity of
Philadelphia, where he established himself as a merchant, farmer, stock
raiser, and dealer in lands.  Unhappily, a few years later Alice was
taken sick and died.
     Robert married his second wife, Mary Burtis, in 1729 in New Jersey.
Deciding to leave Philadelphia and move westward, Worthington divided
his estate into nine equal portions, retaining one for himself and
distributing the others among his eight children, who, with the
exception of Samuel and Jacob, were not interested in moving into the
wilderness.  In 1730, having completed the purchase of three thousand
acres of northern Shenandoah Valley land, he moved his wife and infant
son Robert, to the area west of the Blue Ridge mountains just south of
the Potomac.  This land lay in Frederick Co., VA; for a time in Berkeley
Co., VA, and finally in Jefferson Co., WV.
     In mid October 1735, while at Snowden's ireworks near Paxtuxent, MD,
Robert was taken ill and died at an inn close by.  On October 2, he had
had an attorney draw a will which divided his estate of three thousand
acres among his widow, his children (Robert, Jacob, Mary and Martha) and
a grandson, Bobby Dunblean, first son of Samuel, who was Worthington's
eldest son by his first wife.  However, the lawyer failed to specify
that the land was to be held in fee simple by each devisee and his
heairs forever.  The Virginia law, therefore, gave the heirs only
lifetime estate, with reversion to Bobby Dunblean on their deaths."

	Benjamin Borden was born in 1692, a son of Benjamin
Borden and --- Grover, near Freehold, N.J., and died in Frederick Co, Va.,
in 1743.  He married Zeruiah Winter of West New Jersey, and came to
Virginia sometime in 1732  ... His will, dated April 3, 1742, and probated
October 9, 1743, in Frederick County, mentions his wife Zeruiah, his sons
Benjamin Jr., John and Joseph, and his daughters Abigail, wife of Jacob
Worthington, Hannah, wife of Capt. Edward Rogers, Mercy, wife of

of --- Branson and Deborah and Lidy, still single.

	It is not known when John Frost died, but the records of
Frederick County show that administration upon the estate of
John Chambers was granted to John Frost, with Robert
Worthington and Richard Morgan as sureties, on June 18, 1748.

Pages 183-184:
	In the settlement of Friends in the section that is now
 Jefferson County, W. Va., and near to the country-seat, Charles
Town, perhaps the first Friend to arrive was Robert Worth-
ington, who settled on Evitt's Marsh on a tract of 3000 acres
granted him from the Crown, and which he named "Quarry
Banks New Stile" for his old home in Cheshire, England,
which was named "Quarry Banks."  The date of his arrival
in the Shenandoah Valley is not definitely known, but among
the paper relative to the settlement of his estate on record in
Orange County is a deposition made by his widow, which states
that she and her husband were married in Friends Meeting
at Burlington, New Jersey, 13th of 6th month, 1729, "and
quickly after the said marriage ... removed to this County."
	Robert Worthington was a consistent Friend and devoted
to the interests of our Society.  This is shown by the records
of Moate Monthly Meeting and Dublin Monthly Meeting
in Ireland, which he attended during his residence in that
country, and of the Monthly Meetings of Salem, N. J. and
Philadelphia, Pa., in America.  After his settlement in Vir-
ginia he was largely engaged in business as a merchant and
exporter as well as a farmer, and was instrumental in promot-
ing the settlement of the lower Valley.  After his death
"Quarry Banks" and a portion of his land came in to the pos-
session of his youngest son Robert.  The latter by marriage
out of meeting withdrew from our Society in 1760, and shor-
ly thereafter he with others erected hear his mansion house
St. George's Chapel, said to have been the most costly chapel
in Virginia at that time.  The ruins of this chapel are a well
known landmark two and a half miles northwest of Charles
Town.  His son Thomas, born and reared at "Quarry Banks,"
removed to Ross County, Ohio, and became the sixth gover-
nor of that state.
	The remainder of the "Quarry Banks" estate was divided
amount the older children of Robert Worthington Sr. and was
purchased from them at various times by Lawrence and
Samuel Washington, the latter of whom built, on a part of
this land, his mansion "Harewood" where he resided at the
time of his death in 1781.  It is of interest to note that Samuel
Washington's son, George Steptoe Washington, married Lucy
Payne, whose parents, John and Mary Payne, served for many
years as the clerks of Cedar Creek Meeting in Hanover Coun-
ty, Va.  At "Harewood" Dorothy Payne Todd, sister to Lucy
(Payne) Washington and widow of John Todd of Pine Street
Meeting, Philadelphia, was married to James Madison, later
fourth President of the United States.

Worthington, Jacob Worthington, Joab Worthington,
Samuel IRVIN and Elizabeth his Wife, Stephen GIFORD
and Sarah his Wife, William BRATTON and Ailse his
Wife, Nathaniel POPE and Mary his Wife

Against -----   William COLTRAINE

Humbly complaining show unto your Honour your Orators
that many years ago, to wit, in the Year _____ John
Worthington purchased of one Christopher VICKERY his
right to and Improvement of a tract of land lying and
situate in Randolph County, and paid a valuable
Consideration thereof.  The said Christopher having
previous to that time made such Improvement upon the
said tract of land as entitled him to preemption right
when the entry Office were Opened in the year 1777-
that John Worthington immediately after he made the
Purchase, took possession of the Said tract of land
and settled thereon his Son John, who built a House
and enlarged the Improvement made by Christopher
VICKERY;  that John the Son resided on the land for a
considerable time, when he became sickly and removed,
whereupon John Worthington the father kept up the
fences and worked the plantation for many Years- And
that since he discontinued the cultivation of the
plantation, no person has had the actual possession of
the said tract of and They further Show that shortly
after John Worthington junior settled
On the Said tract of land, he entered into an
agreement with one William COLTRAINE of Randolph
County respecting the perfecting to the Title to the
said tract, and in consideration of a certain Sum of
money either actually paid to the Said William
COLTRAINE or secured to be paid to him, he the said
William COLTRAINE promised and agreed to perfect the
Title of the Said tract of land by proving an entry and
a Survey to be made and a Grant to be issued for the
said land in the name and for the Use and benefit of the
Said John Worthington And that shortly after John
Worthington junior left the House and plantation as
aforesaid the Said William COLTRAINE again promised and
agreed to do all things necessary to perfect the title
in the Said John Worthington Senr.  And in about the
Year 1799 the Said William COLTRAINE and John
Worthington came to a Settlement of their accounts
respecting the services rendered by COLTRAINE and the
Money advanced by him to perfect the Title to the said
tract of land, and for the balance due to the Said
COLTRAINE upon the Settlement, the Said Worthington
gave his bond.

        Your Orators further Show that on or about the
24th day of July AD 1786, the Said William COLTRAINE
having made an entry of the Said tract of land in his
own name, procured a Grant from the State for the
Same, a copy which is annexed to this bill and your
Orators pray may be taken as a part thereof — they
charge that by the Agreement aforesaid the said
William COLTRAINE was bound to procure a title to the
said land to the said John Worthington, and pretended
to the Said John for many years that the entry had
been made in the name of and that a Grant would (be)
issued to the Said John, And after it was discovered
that the entry and Grant was in the name of said
COLTRAINE he often promised to convey the Title to the
Said John Worthington, Saying that he had found it
more convenient to perfect the title in his own name
than in the name of the Said John that the Land
belonged to the Said John and he was to make a
Conveyance of the Title to him.

Your Orators charge that by the Agreement aforesaid
the Said William COLTRAINE upon procuring the Grant
aforesaid became Seised of the Said tract of land in
trust for the Said John Worthington and was bound to
convey the legal estate immediately after he procured
the Grant for they charge that John Worthington
performed his part of the Contract and either actually
paid or Secured to be paid to the Said COLTRAINE and
in a way satisfactory to him, the money which he
COLTRAINE was to receive for his services and
expenditures in procuring the title aforesaid,  And
that there was no Condition stipulated to be performed
by the Said John previous to his getting the Title,
which hath not been fulfilled by him with good faith-

Your Orators show that in the Year 1810, the said John
Worthington departed this life intestate leaving the
following Children his Heirs at law, to wit, Your
Orators, Ephraim, Samuel, Jacob, Joab, Elizabeth
intermarried with Samuel Irwin, Sarah intermarried
with Stephen GISFORD, Ailse intermarried with William
BRATTON, and Mary intermarried with Nathaniel POPE, upon
whom the equitable title to the Said tract of land
descended.  And that since the death of the Said John
Worthington they have applied to the said William
COLTRAINE in a friendly way and requested him to
convey to them the Said tract of Land;  But now so it
is, May it please your Honour, that the Said William
COLTRAINE combining and confederating with Others at
present unknown to your Orators, but whose names when
discovered Your Orators pray may be inserted in this
their Bill of Complaint with apt and Sufficient Words
to charge them and they be made parties thereto, how
to injure and defraud Your Orators in the Promises,
refused to comply with this the reasonable request,
pretending sometimes that no such Agreement as that
set forth by your Orators was ever made, nor any Other
Agreement whereby he was bound to convey to the Said
John Worthington the said tract of land, or procure
for the said John a title to the said tract; the
contrary whereof your Orator charges to be true; at
Other times pretending that true it is he was bound to
perfect the Title to the said tract of land for the
said John Worthington, and convey the Same to him, but
the Said John did not in his life time have his
representation Since his death pay up to him the Said
William the sum agreed to be paid for his services and
expenditures in procuring the said Title, and that a
large balance is still due on the bond of the Said
John given to secure the said Monies;

Whereas your Orators charge that all the money due on
the bond aforesaid hath been paid to the said William,
or that the Said John was entitled to a Sett-off for
the balance due for sundry Articles furnished to the
said William since the execution of the said bond, a
true statement of which is annexed to this your

often called upon the Said William to come to a
settlement of the Accounts aforesaid, and to ascertain
whether any and if any, how much was due. on the bond
aforesaid and offered to pay to the Said William the
Said balance, and one of your Orators made an
Application to this effect to said William a short
time ago and offered to pay to him the balance due on
the Said bond if any and requested to the Said William
to make a title to the Said Land. to your Orators, all
of which offers so made by your Orators,. the Said
William wholly refused to comply with:

  — In tender Consideration whereof and for as much as
your Orators are remediless in the premises, save only
in this Honourable Court, where Matters of fraud and
trust are cognizable and relievable, and to the end
that the Said William COLTRAINE may upon his Corporal
Oath full, true and perfect Answers make to all the
singular the Premises in as ample manner as if the
same were herein again repeated and he there unto
interrogated And that the Said William may be decreed
to convey the Said tract of land to your Orators with
general Warranty, and that Your Orators may have such
other and further relief in the Premises as to your
Honour shall seem agreeable to equity a good

William Lamar, a revolutionary offi- cer, who lies buried on a farm near Frostburg, Md. On his tombstone his deeds are perpetuated in a lengthy inscription, of which the following is a copy: "In memory of col. William Lamar, a soldier of the Revolution. At the Tap of the drum in his Page 16: native State, Maryland, to the standard of his country he flew, nor left until she was acknowl- edged free and independent amoung the nations of the earth At the battles Harlem Heights, White Plains, Gerrnantown, Monmouth, Staten Island, in the north; at Guilford Court House, Eutaw, Camden, the capture of Fort Mott, Granby, Wateree, and the siege of Ninety Six Six, in the south, he was present (and actively engaged, and by his coolness, bravery and skill, rendered most signal and important services to the army. At Guilford the desperate charge of the American troops which turned the scale of victory in their favor was ordered at his suggestion, which was communicated to General Greene through Major Anderson, and the plan of firing Fort Mott, which was success- fully adopted, and which occasioned the immediate surrender of that fort by the British, originated exclusively with him. In the disastrous battle of Camden he was present in the fight, and was by the side of De kalb when that brave officer fell. In the siege of Ninety Six the Immortal Kosciusko was his fellow soldier, and served under him for a while. The noble conduct of the brave Pole was the fond theme of his admiration and praise through life. Entering the army at the com- mencement of the Revolution, he continued in it, engaged in active service until the close of the war. During the contest he made but one visit home. Page 17: He married early, had sons and daughters, the most of whom he lived to see begirt with glowing infancy. Possessing a heart full of kindness and a temper almost proof against anger, he was re- spected in all the relations of life. He was born in Frederick County, but for thirty years previous to his death he resided in Alleghany, where he died January 9th, 1838, aged 83 years. Also sacred to the memory of Margaret Lamar, his wife. She was beloved and esteemed by all who knew her for the many virtues that adorned her char- acter. She died universally lamented, march 17th, 1821, aged 54 years." [From the Cumberland Civilian, January 12th. 1838] Died on the 8th inst. Col. William Lamar, in the 83rd year of his age. Colonel Lamar was a native of Frederick County, and had been a resi- dent amount us for more than thirty years. he entered the revolutionary army shortly after the Declaration of independence, in the 21st year of his age. He was appointed an ensign at the age of 21, and not long afterwards was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, then made quarter-master and finally promoted to the rank of Captain of the Seventh Maryland regiment. The captain was engage in active service from the beginning to the close of the war, and never returned to his Page 18: home but once during the whole time, and the enjoyed but a short respite from duty. He was engaged in every important battle, fought in the east until 1780; at Harlem Heights, White Plains, Germantown, Monmouth, Staten island and other places. In 1780 he marched to the South, and at the battle of Camden was fighting by the side of De Kalb, under whose immediate command he was when that lamented officer was killed. With the Southern army Col. Lamar remained an active officer and soldier until the close of the war; was at the battle of Guilford Court House, at Eutaw, and assisted at the capture of Forts Mott, Granby and Watson. The desperate charge of the Ameri- can troops, which turned the scale of battle in their favor, was ordered by Gen. Greene, at the instance of Col. Lamas, whose suggestion was communi- cated to the General through major Anderson. At Fort Mot the Colonel also distinguished him- self by suggesting setting fire to the fort, which was successful, and in a few moments compelled the garrison to surrender. The Colonel was also engaged at the siege of Ninety-six under Gen. Greene. He had command of the mining party, a brother officer of Virginia was associated with him, but was compelled to withdraw on account of sickness. It was her the Colonel met Kosciusko, the immortal Polander, of whom he used to take great pleasure in relating the following anecdote. Page 19: the Colonel being left in sole command of the mining party was anxious to procure some subal- tern officer to assist him. Kosciusko hearing this, immediately came forward and magnani- mously offered to serve the Colonel in the capacity of subaltern, and agreed to remain with him constantly. the colonel used to say he pre- ferred Kosciusko to any other officer in the army. the Colonel received several wounds in the battles of the Revolution, was shot in the thigh at Guilford and in the breast at Eutaw. Notwhitstanding the many sufferings and privation he had to endure in the army, I have heard him say that his "term of service was the most happy and joyous period of his life; that he became fond of the changing success of military life and was never disturbed by the least sense of its dangers/" The Colonel mar- ried early and had several children whom he had the pleasure of seeing raised to the head of pro- perous families. As a husband and father he was exemplary. By his industry and enterprise he acquired a valuable estate which he divided amount his children as they respectively arrived at age and married. He retained for himself no more than was sufficient together with his pension to support him. As a citizen, above all as a companion, the loss of the Colonel will long be regretted. Always cheerful he was a most welcome visitor whenever he came. There was no countenance that would page 20; not brighten with a smile at the approach of the colonel. In him old age had put on the greenness and vivacity of youth. He delighted to the last in all the pleasantries of boyhood and retained most of his susceptibilities. In the several last years of his life he almost lived on horseback, and no boy, however much accustomed to such exercise was a better jockey than the colonel. He has been known within the past year to ride upwards of sixty miles in one day. He has pro- posed to ride any distance not exceeding one hundred miles in one day, provided he could be furnished with suitable horses, and would bet that he could ride a fast any other man, either in a single day, or for any number of days, continu- ously. Col. Lamar died as the exhausted taper dieth. He fell as the fruit falleth in autumn at the full period of ripeness. Death with him was but the falling off to sleep the system had gradu- ally worn out, and the breath of life seems to have left him unconsciously. Death for once turned counterfeitor and put on the likeness of tranquil sleep, for as if he had fallen away into a sweet repose so did my lamented and venerable friend appear hushed in death. May his cheerful and happy spirit be in the enjoyment of more perfect bliss, and may death to him have been only he medium for an exchange of feeble old age into a life of perpetual health, beauty and happiness.

Page 15: A writer in the Baltimore Times says: Ann Worthington, daughter of John Worthington and Mary Todd, married Dr. John Cradock, second son of "Parson Cradock," first Rector of St. Thomas' Church, built in 1743, and still standing in that beautiful region of country known as Green Spring Valley, about twelve miles from Baltimore. Dr. Cradock was born January 25th, 1740. He was a member of the medical profession. In 1775, he became a member of St. Thomas' Church Vestry, and was annually re-elected for some fifteen years. he was a delegate from the parish to the first general convention of the church in Maryland, and frequently afterwards to the diocesan convention. He was active in the revolutionary cause, and a member of the committee of observation in 1774-5, previous to the organization of the State govern- ment. He served one year in the flying corps of General Washington, in which he held a major's commission. He died October 4th, 1794. Margaret "Worthington, sister of Mrs. Cradock, married Col. William Lamar, a revolutionary offi- cer, who lies buried on a farm near Frostburg, Md. On his tombstone his deeds are perpetuated in a lengthy inscription, of which the following is a copy: "In memory of col. William Lamar, a soldier of the Revolution. At the Tap of the drum in his Page 16: native State, Maryland, to the standard of his country he flew, nor left until she was acknowl- edged free and independent amoung the nations of the earth At the battles Harlem Heights, White Plains, Gerrnantown, Monmouth, Staten Island, in the north; at Guilford Court House, Eutaw, Camden, the capture of Fort Mott, Granby, Wateree, and the siege of Ninety Six Six, in the south, he was present (and actively engaged, and by his coolness, bravery and skill, rendered most signal and important services to the army. At Guilford the desperate charge of the American troops which turned the scale of victory in their favor was ordered at his suggestion, which was communicated to General Greene through Major Anderson, and the plan of firing Fort Mott, which was success- fully adopted, and which occasioned the immediate surrender of that fort by the British, originated exclusively with him. In the disastrous battle of Camden he was present in the fight, and was by the side of De kalb when that brave officer fell. In the siege of Ninety Six the Immortal Kosciusko was his fellow soldier, and served under him for a while. The noble conduct of the brave Pole was the fond theme of his admiration and praise through life. Entering the army at the com- mencement of the Revolution, he continued in it, engaged in active service until the close of the war. During the contest he made but one visit home. Page 17: He married early, had sons and daughters, the most of whom he lived to see begirt with glowing infancy. Possessing a heart full of kindness and a temper almost proof against anger, he was re- spected in all the relations of life. He was born in Frederick County, but for thirty years previous to his death he resided in Alleghany, where he died January 9th, 1838, aged 83 years. Also sacred to the memory of Margaret Lamar, his wife. She was beloved and esteemed by all who knew her for the many virtues that adorned her char- acter. She died universally lamented, march 17th, 1821, aged 54 years." [From the Cumberland Civilian, January 12th. 1838] Died on the 8th inst. Col. William Lamar, in the 83rd year of his age. Colonel Lamar was a native of Frederick County, and had been a resi- dent amount us for more than thirty years. he entered the revolutionary army shortly after the Declaration of independence, in the 21st year of his age. He was appointed an ensign at the age of 21, and not long afterwards was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, then made quarter-master and finally promoted to the rank of Captain of the Seventh Maryland regiment. The captain was engage in active service from the beginning to the close of the war, and never returned to his Page 18: home but once during the whole time, and the enjoyed but a short respite from duty. He was engaged in every important battle, fought in the east until 1780; at Harlem Heights, White Plains, Germantown, Monmouth, Staten island and other places. In 1780 he marched to the South, and at the battle of Camden was fighting by the side of De Kalb, under whose immediate command he was when that lamented officer was killed. With the Southern army Col. Lamar remained an active officer and soldier until the close of the war; was at the battle of Guilford Court House, at Eutaw, and assisted at the capture of Forts Mott, Granby and Watson. The desperate charge of the Ameri- can troops, which turned the scale of battle in their favor, was ordered by Gen. Greene, at the instance of Col. Lamas, whose suggestion was communi- cated to the General through major Anderson. At Fort Mot the Colonel also distinguished him- self by suggesting setting fire to the fort, which was successful, and in a few moments compelled the garrison to surrender. The Colonel was also engaged at the siege of Ninety-six under Gen. Greene. He had command of the mining party, a brother officer of Virginia was associated with him, but was compelled to withdraw on account of sickness. It was her the Colonel met Kosciusko, the immortal Polander, of whom he used to take great pleasure in relating the following anecdote. Page 19: the Colonel being left in sole command of the mining party was anxious to procure some subal- tern officer to assist him. Kosciusko hearing this, immediately came forward and magnani- mously offered to serve the Colonel in the capacity of subaltern, and agreed to remain with him constantly. the colonel used to say he pre- ferred Kosciusko to any other officer in the army. the Colonel received several wounds in the battles of the Revolution, was shot in the thigh at Guilford and in the breast at Eutaw. Notwhitstanding the many sufferings and privation he had to endure in the army, I have heard him say that his "term of service was the most happy and joyous period of his life; that he became fond of the changing success of military life and was never disturbed by the least sense of its dangers/" The Colonel mar- ried early and had several children whom he had the pleasure of seeing raised to the head of pro- perous families. As a husband and father he was exemplary. By his industry and enterprise he acquired a valuable estate which he divided amount his children as they respectively arrived at age and married. He retained for himself no more than was sufficient together with his pension to support him. As a citizen, above all as a companion, the loss of the Colonel will long be regretted. Always cheerful he was a most welcome visitor whenever he came. There was no countenance that would page 20; not brighten with a smile at the approach of the colonel. In him old age had put on the greenness and vivacity of youth. He delighted to the last in all the pleasantries of boyhood and retained most of his susceptibilities. In the several last years of his life he almost lived on horseback, and no boy, however much accustomed to such exercise was a better jockey than the colonel. He has been known within the past year to ride upwards of sixty miles in one day. He has pro- posed to ride any distance not exceeding one hundred miles in one day, provided he could be furnished with suitable horses, and would bet that he could ride a fast any other man, either in a single day, or for any number of days, continu- ously. Col. Lamar died as the exhausted taper dieth. He fell as the fruit falleth in autumn at the full period of ripeness. Death with him was but the falling off to sleep the system had gradu- ally worn out, and the breath of life seems to have left him unconsciously. Death for once turned counterfeitor and put on the likeness of tranquil sleep, for as if he had fallen away into a sweet repose so did my lamented and venerable friend appear hushed in death. May his cheerful and happy spirit be in the enjoyment of more perfect bliss, and may death to him have been only he medium for an exchange of feeble old age into a life of perpetual health, beauty and happiness. ___________________________________________ [Grandson of Robert Worthington (the Quaker) 1663-1735, and the son of Col.

From Ann Worthington Email: annhewitt@naxs.net Following are two pieces from my notes on Robert Dunblean Worthington: 1) From "Kentucky Family Records," Volume IX, p. 8 ff: Robert (Bobby Dunblean) Worthington, oldest son of Samuel Worthington and Sarah Simcock, came of age Circa 1738. Following the death of his father in 1739, Bobby lost little time in filing suit against the other heirs in an attempt to overthrow the will of his grandfather. His petition in Chancery reviewed the terms of the will and outlined the grandson's objections on the following grounds: (1) Mary, the 2nd wife of the grandfather Robert Sr., had since remarried one Samuel Britain but had not renounced her dower as legally required. (2) The will named grandsons Robert and Jacob. There had never been a grandson named Jacob, leaving the inference that Robert the testator had either been ill or senile at the time the will was drawn. (3) Since the land had not been left in fee simple, all the heirs were tenants in common. The land could not be divided; no heir could sell any part of the land nor could he improve it to his advantage. (4) Samuel Britain, 2nd husband of Robert Sr.'s widow, had taken over the management of the estate, claiming it was his by right of dower and excluding all other heirs from participation in the management. Samuel Britain and Mary his wife answered the complaint, admitting the truth of all assertions except that regarding the dower. Samuel Britain had been appointed guardian of the minor children Robert and Martha - the chief heirs according to intent of father's will - and it was his duty to manage the estate in their best interest until they become of age. (According to Sarah Worthington King Peters, granddaughter of young Robert, Samuel Britain treated his step-children harshly; the boy was made an indentured servant of a hard master and ran away. The Court later appointed Bobby Dunblean as guardian of his young half-uncle. The Court decreed the following settlement: 1000 acres to Mary Britain to be used during her lifetime; reversionary rights to Robert, the Complainant. 666 2/3 acres to Robert, youngest son of the testator; reversionary rights to complainant. 333 1/3 acres to Martha, youngest daughter of testator; reversionary rights to complainant. 400 acres to Jacob Worthington for use during his lifetime with land to revert to complainant upon his death. 600 acres and all reversionary rights to complainant. The Court ordered the land to be surveyed and divided. The survey indicated 800 acres more than 3000 shown in the original grant. Lord Fairfax deeded the land to Bobby bringing his total to almost 1400 acres for immediate possession. This was a promising start for a young man in his twenties. The reversionary rights, if he had exercised them, would have given him 4000 acres and made him one of the largest landowners in the area. Bobby Dunblean, unfortunately, proved to be a poor business man. Little by little he sold off the land. In 1769 he was granted 300 acres of land in Pa., County of Westmoreland and apparently lived there until death. May 1788 is date of last record found in that county and it is assumed he died soon after. Bobby Dunblean Worthington died intestate and there is no recorded deed naming any of his children. No clue has been found indicating name or marriage of any daughter and only a partial list of his sons can be assembled. Actual proof exists for only one - William of Muhlenberg Co., KY. Four others seem fairly certain - Samuel, Robert Jr., Jacob and James. May have been others.

2/25/2001 From: Pamela Service - pjaz@pacbell.net The latest I found is a line of ancestry for Alice Taylor Worthington: http://rmeservy.byu.edu/pafhtml/Pavlowich/index.html I have never seen a line for her before this and I wrote to them for their source. Pamela Service 8th gt grand daughter of Robert Worthington and Alice Taylor 7th of Samuel Worthington and Sarah Simcock 6th of Alice Worthington and Henry Walton
March 21, 2001: From Pamela Service - pjaz@pacbell.net:

I did get the proof today of Alse, Alice Worthington marrying Henry Walton. It came from Brenda Burgess, and I thank her sooooo much. She is active in Bledsoe County TN. Without ado--:

"Hello, my proof comes from The Genealogy of the Worthington Family of Alabama , South Carolina, Virginia and Ohio by Henry Upson Sims of 1937:

page 26: There seems to have been a Friends' Meeting established in the Valley of Virginia in 1734, as Hopewell Meeting; and all these Friends were transferred to that Meeting on its formation; but the minutes of the Hopewell Meeting covering the period of 1734-1758 were burned; and so there are no Quaker records reaming of the members of families and removal from Pennsylvania.

The will of Sarah Hays, supra, show that she had two sisters, "Elsa" Bodingham and Martha Sween; and Will Book 1, pg. 174, Frederick County Records, shows that her name was Alice, and that her husband's name was James Bodingham and that he was dead on May 3, 1748. That entry and another in Order Book 2, p. 428, show that Alice the widow was made Administratix; and Order Book 3, p. 317 shows that on November 16, 1750, she had become wife of Henry Walton.

But on March 8, 1748, (5) Jacob Worthington was dead, and Alice Bodingham, later Alice Walton was made administratrix of Jacob's estate,his widow Abigail not caring to act. and Order Book 4 p. 367 , shows that Jacob had left three minor daughters, Esther, Rachel and Elizabeth. Whether he left any sons does not appear.

Notes for SARAH SIMCOCK: Sarah Simcock was born July 18, 1696, the daughter of Jacob Simcock and Alice Maris. (See "The Maris family in the United States", compiled for the family by George L. and Jane M. Maris, West Chester, Pennsylvania, 1885.) The volume on the Maris Family states about Sarah Simcock merely "married 1716, Samuel Worthington: September 26, 1722 they moved to Salem, New Jersey." - nothing more. However, Worthington records reveal that they moved to Virginia some ten years later, and were ancestors of the Southern Worthingtons. Sarah Simcock evidently ran away from home and married Samuel Worthington without her parents' consent; and they probably married without the formalities of the Society of Friends. There seems to be in the Chester Minutes no declaration of their intentions to marry, nor any allowances, as seems to be the rule. On the contrary, at Chester Monthly Meeting (Springfield Meeting) a complaint was made of Samuel Worthington on account of his marriage to Sarah Simcock, after keeping company with her without her parents' knowledge or consent; and that the two were "disowned", that is, expelled from the flock. The testimony is dated September, 26, 1716. The next year, however, they both " offered acknowledgment", and were reinstated August 28 and September 25, 1717.

Following are two pieces from my notes on Robert Dunblean Worthington:

1) From "Kentucky Family Records," Volume IX, p. 8 ff:

Robert (Bobby Dunblean) Worthington, oldest son of Samuel Worthington and
Sarah Simcock, came of age Circa 1738.  Following the death of his father in
1739, Bobby lost little time in filing suit against the other heirs in an
attempt to overthrow the will of his grandfather.  His petition in Chancery
reviewed the terms of the will and outlined the grandson's objections on the
following grounds:

(1)  Mary, the 2nd wife of the grandfather Robert Sr., had since remarried
one Samuel Britain but had not renounced her dower as legally required.
(2)  The will named grandsons Robert and Jacob.  There had never been a
grandson named Jacob, leaving the inference that Robert the testator had
either been ill or senile at the time the will was drawn.
(3)  Since the land had not been left in fee simple, all the heirs were
tenants in common.  The land could not be divided; no heir could sell any
part of the land nor could he improve it to his advantage.
(4)  Samuel Britain, 2nd husband of Robert Sr.'s widow, had taken over the
management of the estate, claiming it was his by right of dower and
excluding all other heirs from participation in the management.

Samuel Britain and Mary his wife answered the complaint, admitting the truth
of all assertions except that regarding the dower.  Samuel Britain had been
appointed guardian of the minor children Robert and Martha - the chief heirs
according to intent of father's will - and it was his duty to manage the
estate in their best interest until they become of age.  (According to Sarah
Worthington King Peters, granddaughter of young Robert, Samuel Britain
treated his step-children harshly; the boy was made an indentured servant of
a hard master and ran away.  The Court later appointed Bobby Dunblean as
guardian of his young half-uncle.

The Court decreed the following settlement:
        1000 acres to Mary Britain to be used during her lifetime; reversionary
rights to Robert, the Complainant.
        666 2/3 acres to Robert, youngest son of the testator; reversionary rights
to complainant.
        333 1/3 acres to Martha, youngest daughter of testator; reversionary rights
to complainant.
        400 acres to Jacob Worthington for use during his lifetime with land to
revert to complainant upon his death.
        600 acres and all reversionary rights to complainant.

The Court ordered the land to be surveyed and divided.  The survey indicated
800 acres more than 3000 shown in the original grant.  Lord Fairfax deeded
the land to Bobby bringing his total to almost 1400 acres for immediate
possession.  This was a promising start for a young man in his twenties.
The reversionary rights, if he had exercised them, would have given him 4000
acres and made him one of the largest landowners in the area.  Bobby
Dunblean, unfortunately, proved to be a poor businessman.  Little by little
he sold off the land.  In 1769 he was granted 300 acres of land in Pa.,
County of Westmoreland and apparently lived there until death.  May 1788 is
date of last record found in that county and it is assumed he died soon
after.

Bobby Dunblean Worthington died intestate and there is no recorded deed
naming any of his children.  No clue has been found indicating name or
marriage of any daughter and only a partial list of his sons can be
assembled.  Actual proof exists for only one - William of Muhlenberg Co.,
KY.  Four others seem fairly certain - Samuel, Robert Jr., Jacob and James.
May have been others. [List: Samuel, Robert Jr., Jacob, James, William,
Benjamin and Andrew.]

Goodmorning Janet,

     Looks like a good connection going on here from my perspective,
to my Walton line in Guilford and the Swaims and Polk too.
Yes these Polk do connect in the line of President James Knox Polk.
JAMES POLK, who marries MASSA SWAIM
has his line go back to
fa William and grandfather William Polk III Sir b. 1725, who has a
brother Ezekial.
Well, Ezekial is the grandfather of President Polk, through his son
Samuel.
This is easy enough to peruse on Familysearch.org--  William Polk III
Sir and Ezekial's parents were
WILLIAM POLK and MARGARET TAYLOR.

     Now I am looking at these Swaims again who marry Polks, James Polk
to Massa and his daughter Nancy H Polk to Joshua Swaim.

     I note( from my perspective) that Massa is the granddaughter of
Martha Worthington Swaim.

Massa's husband, James Polk is the grandfather to NANCY HUTCHINSON PETTY
SWINDELL who marries Lewis Harvey Swindell, the GREAT GRANDSON of ALICE
WORTHINGTON WALTON, sister to Martha Worthington Swaim.

Another way put, Martha Worthington Swaim's grandchild  MASSA, marries
her sister Alice Worthington Walton's, ***gt grandchild's wife's***,
grandfather. WHEW!

ALICE WORTHINGTON WALTON
has a son John Walton
who has a daughter Alice Walton, marries John Swindell
they have a son Lewis Harvey Swindell b 1820
who marries ***Nancy Hutchinson Petty***

daughter of Margaret Polk
daughter of JAMES POLK who marries 2nd to MASSA SWAIM-daughter of John
Swaim and Elizabeth Vickery
GRAND DAUHTER of MARTHA WORTHINGTON SWAIM

Now if that isn't enough confusion, Margaret Polk Petty's sister Nancy
H. Polk marries Joshua Swaim, son of William Swaim and Elizabeth
Sherwood.

Please help me see this William in context to Martha Worthington Swaim.
I looked this morning at what you have sent in the past and see that
there are a lot of Sherwoods that marry into the Michael Swaim and sally
Rigdon line--  OK, I need help finding which William Swaim marries
Elizabeth Sherwood.  If anyone can tell me, YOU can.

Thanks Janet,
Love,
Pamela Service
6th gt grand daughter of Alice Worthington Walton

Just adding here, that Pat Schukneckt says that Henry Walton was the 
bondsman  for their marriage.  This must be the husband to Alice 
WORTHINGTON Walton (sister to Martha Worthington Swaim). 
At the time of this marriage, he was the only Henry Walton in our family, 
alive, and old enough to be a 
bondsman. The next were grandsons and gt grandsons.

Notes for SARAH WORTHINGTON: Source: pjaz@pacbell.net(Pamela Service)

The research I work with, all says that Samuel Worthington and Sarah Simcock were Martha Worthington's parents who married Michael Swaim. She is named in her sister Sarah Worthington Hayes Will @1747 Virginia and appears there to be the sister to my Alice Worthington aka Else Bodingham, a year or so later to be Walton. Both surviving sisters go to Guilford/Randolph County area of North Carolina. I think that Abigail Branson is supposed to be Borden, ie., Jacob Worthington married Abigail Borden, and their daughter Rachel Worthington, Martha and Alice's 1st cousin, married, 1761, to William Coltrane. I have not come across a researcher who has Abigail Branson, although Branson becomes a popular name on the sides of William Coltrane and my Alice Walton. The above Pamela Service is the 6th gt grandaughter of Alice Worthington Walton who is the sister of my Martha Worthington Swaim.

From the Annuals of Newberry: John Worthington, Sr., quiet, oral, inoffensive and industrious; few men deserve more as a parent and a neighbor. From 1804 to 1808, he far exceeded any man I know in the quanity of bottomland which he raised in proportation to the number of hands he employed. Wealth flowed in upon him, and at his death probably in 1826 or 1927, he still had, after providing for his large family who had previously married, a very considerable sum. His farm was located on Beaver Dam Creek near the Saluda River in Newberry County. The Will of John Worthington, Sr. is in the Newberry Court House proved March 19, 1827 and settled 1835.

Notes for MICHAEL ANTHONY SWAIM:
5TH GREAT GRANDFATHER OF JANET GOFF JENKINS 

Michael Swaim married Martha Worthington. This family also went to Rowan County North Carolina in the 1750s and settled about 15 miles further east than John and Charity Teague Swaim. . They settled in the area of Center Community in present day Guilford County North Carolina about 18 miles south of present day Greensboro, North Carolina. There are only four known children of Michael and Martha. It is very likely that there are more. Until recently, only three children were known: William (1746), John (1748) and Michael (c. 1753). Recently another son, Moses, has been found. Moses left North Carolina about 1789 and went to Kentucky and on to Athens County, Ohio(which later became Vinton County Ohio) in 1809. There was an Alexander Swaim with Moses in Kentucky who may have also been another son. No daughters have ever been identified for Michael but it is very likely there were some.

Source: Lloyd Swaim
Shown on tax list for RowanCounty, North Carolina in 1761.  May have arrived with family 
from Virginia in the winter of 1751. 

John Swaim and Michael Swaim went to Rowan County North Carolina in the 1750s.

The survey of John's land grant took place in 1750 and he sold it and migrated to 
North Carolina in the following year of 1751.  We also have to state that the 
indications are that Michael preceded John to North Carolina and this took place 
at some point in 1750-1751, prior to John having sold his land.  
MOSES SWAIM'S PARENTS:  Since it is definitely known that Moses Swaim's son, Michael, was born in Salisbury District, Guilford County North Carolina on December 3, 1788 from both census records and other documentation from his descendants, Moses' parents would have to be Michael and Marthey Worthington Swaim. [NOTE: This genealogical hypothesis is held by many researchers but also questioned by others. Concrete documentation on the parents of Moses Swaim has not as yet been found]. It was in Rowan County North Carolina where Michael (1715) settled in the 1750s when he and his family migrated from Frederick County Virginia to Rowan County North Carolina. His widow Marthey Worthington and his sons William and Michael were living there in the 1790 census. His son, John, settled at present day Level Cross, North Carolina near his wife's father, Marmaduke Vickrey. Guilford County North Carolina was formed from Rowan and Orange Counties in 1771.
The only other possibility being that he was the son of John Swaim and Charity Teague (Michael's brother). He cannot be their son since their son, Moses Swaim, was born in 1759, and his descendants are well documented in Swaim-Tysen History, pages 284-300. " Also, John sold his original land grant in 1771 located in present day Guilford-Davidson County, North Carolina border and moved farther west with his family to Elkin, North Carolina area. "
Swaim tradition coming from the Dutch at that time was to name the two eldest sons for the son's grandparents. Moses followed this tradition and named his eldest son, Michael, for his father Michael (1715). Only three children have ever been established for Michael and Marthey Worthington, William (1746), John (1748) and Michael (c. 1753). It is very unlikely they only had three sons. Arnett in her book, William Swaim, Fighting Editor, quotes Scott as saying Michael raised a large family. They probably also had a son Alexander who was with Moses in Kentucky in 1796.
Moses probably married the first time around 1785 and was probably born around 1760.[NOTE: I have seen where other researchers have put his birth date at around 1744] Michael (1715) would have been 45years old in 1760.

Janet,

I would like to help you but from you data I can't. You see many of us who are directly from John Swaim Jr. and Elibabeth (Vickrey) Swaim do not agree with the data that you have as we know we are from John and Charity (Teague) Swaim's line and not from his brother Michael and Martha (Worthington) Swaim's line. That we are from the Van Pelts and not Barentsens. In my case I am triple related to the Swaims, Vickrey's and Teagues. I was not going to say anything and just not answer but that seemed unfair (I know some has done that already) most of us don't care to argue the fact we get pretty upset at the some of the information being put out. You see we have our facts and if they had theirs they would not have to say we assume and people could find their ancestors as we have all found ours. I go back to England with the Vickreys and Teagues and to Holland on the Swaim side. Swaim is a American name and did not come from Holland it was originated in Staten Island. I don't think you will find your Moses where you are looking he is from another line. You should believe what you feel is correct. I feel I at least needed to let you know there is another belief and we feel we have our facts.
First of all Michael and Martha never had a John or a Moses and Michael did not go to KY in 1789 with anyone, he was 74 years old by then. He died in Guilford Co. at one of his son's places in the Polecat Creek area. His wife Martha who was a Baptist Evanglist has several old letters written about her and there is data to be found about her. She was in the 1790 Census in Guilford Co. She died 1798 at William's house.
Michael and Martha had 9 live children.
There is proof of all this in Guilford Co records. Papers at Durham College about Martha written by a descendent out of their son Michael who m. Sarah Rigdon. Their son William had a son Moses called bad Moses who left NC but he was not b. till 1791.
I truly do wish you luck in finding your Moses.

Dear Cousin, 
     Your question about the family of William and Charity Vickrey Swaim. 

     No dates at all.  The list of children my brother, Henry M. took down
in his office from his old Aunt Bunyan Lambert's grandmother is precisely
as follows, and it is all I know about the matter. 
She may have omitted somebody. 

John-Died single
William-Married and went West
Charity-Married John Green in Guilford County 
Betsy-Died single
Massah-Married John Polk and old man when she married him. 
Patsy-Married a Beeson 
Moses-Married Naomi and went West
Marmaduke

Michael-1. Married Christian Stone and died near old homestead
2. Lived in Guilford. 

More:  The two notes are contradictory and indicate that her memory 
was not too sharp on it.  Marmaduke's children are listed on another page.

We were pleased to hear from you and find someone on our branch of the Swaim family interested enough to be searching with us, and more so to hear that you are interested in more than just your diret line. It is so hard to find anyone around here to share in our endeavors.

We have quite a collection to show you for our three years work on the family. We have uncovered more on the John Swaim and Elizabeth Vickrey Swaim family than on our own, mostly because someone who left here and went to Indiana got to working to get into the DAR. We still have not decided where it all began for us. We've found four different stories of the origin of the Swaims in America, which makes it all confusing.

As far as we have determined, we came from a William (and there were many of that name) Swaim who married Charity Vickrey. The Vickreys were from Randolph County and we know that Charity was a sister of the Elizabeth who married John Swaim in Randolph County. Some say John and William were brothers, others say they were cousins but we haven't determined which. Any way you count; the descendants of the two families were first cousins through their mothers, so if you trace either family they will connect in the late 1700s.

(Remainder of letter not copied.)

The letter above and the notes listed below were written by Francine Swaim of Liberty, North Carolina in 1975 and sent to me (Jesse Swaim)

After Michael Swaim died, his widow married William Swaim from the John and Elizabeth Vickrey Swaim family. They have been traced through census and Wills.

We have connected William Jeremiah and Moses thru correspondence with their descendants in Alabama and Texas. We could be mistaken, but Moses sold off land from the William and Charity grant so we feel he has to belong with ours. Michael's daughter Charity married an Eagle whose son became governor of Arkansas. The Representative Flowers of Alabama who helped with the impeachment proceedings last year is one of Moses Swaim's decendants.

We lost Charity Swaim Green and Naomi Swaim Morgan, can't find them, think they may have gone to Indiana.

Moses Swaim sold his land to Fields and Fields still own a lot of the land around the Clamix, Guilford Co. area.

We feel that William and Charity must be buried at Timber Ridge. Her brother Christopher Vickrey was the preacher there and he is there, as is Marmaduke . Timber Ridge went under and Bethlehem, Guilford County was established from it .

Notes for JOHN SWAIM,SR.:
I received the following info From:	jclarke@gcfn.org (John R Clarke)
To:	jjen1957@aol.com

Hi Janet,
"Saw your posting on John Swaim-Eliz. Vickery.  If you get any response it
will be interestinng.  The reason you get two claims for John's parentage
is there is no firm proof either way.  So different people believe what
they want.
It really goes back to the confushion between my John Swaim (circa 1758-p1832)
of Wilkes Co., NC and your John (1748-1827) of Randolph Co.,  Early researcher
mixed the two together listing some children from both families.  You can
check early DAR records on that.
Some of both lines now claim their John is the son of John and Charity Teague
Swaim but no firm proof for either.  There is circumstancial evidence on
both sides but actually NO real proof that john "Old Swim" even had a son
John.  The only proven children of his are 1) Rachel m. Abraham inniard/Enyard
marriage bond in rowan co.,nc list John as her father as she was underage.
2) William of Stokes(now Forseyth Co) whom John deeded his land on Fax KNobb
in Surry(now Yadkinn) Co. in 1801 for Wm "maintianing me for life".  That
deed also mentions land laid off for s-i-l Thomas Turner(said to have married
daughter Charity Swaim but deed doesn't mention daughters name). So those
3 are provable.  Circumstancially Micheal and Moses Swaim both were granted
adjoining land grants on Fox KNobb in 1789 with John Swaim are presumed sons.
Wm sold the land John gave him to Micheal but doesn't call him brother in
deed.Moses sold his land to Micheal before moving to Alabama c. 1824.
Other claimed for this family are Solomon D. Swaim (tho only documentation
on his is reference by Baptist that he was made a minister c. 1774.  Early
researcher also listed a daughter Elizabeth m. Abraham Transou but that
appears to be bogus. Transous were Moravian and several Transou lineage
with Abraham in them list no wife Elizabeth (Swaim or not).
Everyone seems to assume he "old Swim"(circa 1719-pasr1801) is the father of
either your John or mine, but to my knowledge no one has ever provided
real proof of same."
Regards
John

Was a farmer

John Swaim, son of Michael 1715-1790, also went to Iowa in the 1850, maybe at the same time as Barbara Swaim and Eli Vanderford.

John Swaim and Elizabeth Vickrey were married in 1767 and settled on 200 acres of land located close to Marmaduke Vickrey in northern Randolph County, North Carolina along Deep River. Their homeplace is still standing but is about gone. The house is unoccupied and in very bad shape.

John and Elizabeth Vickrey had eleven children: All grew to adulthood and married. This was very unusual for that time. Their children in order of birth: A. Massah Swaim Robins (1768) B. William Swaim (1770) C. Joshua Swaim (1772) D. Christopher Swaim (1774) E. John Swaim (1777) E. Elizabeth Swaim Swearingen (1779) F. Ashly Swaim (1782) G. Marmaduke Swaim (1784) H. Charity Swaim Laughlin (1786) I. Moses Swaim (1788) and J. Michael Swaim (1791)

According to a story as related by his grandson, Lyndon Swaim, John was a farmer in Randolph County and was a friend and hunting companion of DANIEL BOONE.

THE TIMBER RIDGE PRIMITIVE BAPTIST CHURCH CEMETERY IS LOCATED IN RANDOLPH COUNTY, NOT FAR FROM THE GUILFORD COUNTY LINE. THIS PROPERTY WAS GIVEN TO THE CHURCH ABOUT 1803 BY CHRISTOPHER VICKREY AND THE SURROUNDING FARM IS OWNED BY A DESCENDANT, DICK VICKREY.

Note: The Swaim Bible records were in the possession of this John Swaim which was given to his grandson, Lyndon Swaim, who was born Dec. 15, 1812.

Source: Letter from Francine and Cletis Swaim

John Swaim, Jr.'s will was found in the Greensboro Library willing his all to his son Moses and his grandchildren as listed in the Yoder Papers down as far as were born at that time. He was definitely John, Jr. We found a Land Grant recorded in the State Land Grant Office dated 1798 to John Swaim, Jr. giving one of the boundaries on John Swaim, Sr.'s line. It was in Randolph County on the waters of Deep River, where he was known to live with his wife Elizabeth Vickrey and his 11 children.

Notes for MICHAEL SWAIM:
Original letter in Perkins Library, Duke University, Durham, NC Benjamin Sherwood Hedrick file. One page of a four page letter by Benjamin Sherwood, 9 Feb 1856.
"Beloved Grandchildren" Marion County, Iowa, page 4---1, February 9, 1856. Your grandmother Sherwood maiden name was Sally Swaim, her mothers maiden name was Sally Rigdon or Riggdon. Your grandfather father name was Michael Swaim an his father I think was the same, though I have no record there of, his mother name was Martha Worthington. Father Swaim died when I was a small boy- I recollect seeing him once. Mother Swaim married Samuel Trogdon a few months before I married. She and her husband are both dead. Grandmother Martha Swaim died some years after I had a family. She was a good woman and I think probably, the best female preacher that I ever heard her husband died before I was born. All the Swaim that I have mentioned were Baptists, except mother-in-law, she was a Presbyterian. We are in only moderately good heatlh.
P.S. February 10th the cold is intense. Respectfully
B. Sherwood

Can't read the rest in left corner of page, looks like Land MC Hedrick, New York City, If you write letters direct particular number an to when you write again. This was the end of letter. Note: This letter was from Benjamin Sherwood and 2nd wife Mary Shelton widow of John Shelton. Benjamin divorced Sally Swaim, Oct 1841 and Married Mary Shelton 4 Jan 1848. Son tells of death of father as Jan 1867. Benjamin Sherwood and Sally Swaim had 13 children. "The Sherwood Story" came out in the "THE GUILFORD GENEALOGIST BY THE GUILFORD COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY OF NC, Vol. 18, No. 3, Spring 1991 Number 53. Sally Swaim parents are Michael Swaim and Sally Rigdon/Riggdon, they where married 24 Jul 1775, Guilford Co, NC. I have copy of marriage bond. I'm sure this will help Regan Butler. Keep up the good work, I always like to see your notes. PAT

Notes for SARAH "SALLY" RIGDON:
It had been reported that Michael's wife was Sally Worthington but the following information proves that her name was Sarah Ridgon: Letters written by Benjamin Sherwood, her son in law, from Marion County, Iowa (Feb. 9, 1858, Nov. 26., 1859, Septe3mber 21, 1862, and February 24, 1863) lists her as Sally Ridgon of Irish descent. This information is from The Guilford Genealogist.

Notes for MOSES SWAIM:
4TH GREAT GRANDFATHER OF JANET GOFF JENKINS


MOSES SWAIM'S PARENTS: Since it is definitely(?) known that Moses Swaim's son, Michael, was born in Salisbury District, Guilford County North Carolina on December 3, 1788 from both census records and other documentation from his descendants, Moses' parents would have to be Michael and Marthey Worthington Swaim. [NOTE: This genealogical hypothesis is held by many researchers but also questioned by others. Concrete documentation on the parents of Moses Swaim has not as yet been found] It was in Rowan County North Carolina where Michael (1715) settled in the 1750s when he and his family migrated from Frederick County Virginia to Rowan County North Carolina. His widow Marthey Worthington and his sons William and Michael were living there in the 1790 census. His son, John, settled at present day Level Cross, North Carolina near his wife's father, Marmaduke Vickrey. Guilford County North Carolina was formed from Rowan and Orange Counties in 1771.

The only other possibility being that he was the son of John Swaim and Charity Teague (Michael's brother). He cannot be their son since their son, Moses Swaim, was born in 1759, and his descendants are well documented in Swaim-Tysen History, pages 284-300. " Also, John sold his original land grant in 1771 located in present day Guilford-Davidson County, North Carolina border and moved farther west with his family to Elkin, North Carolina area. "

Swaim tradition coming from the Dutch at that time was to name the two eldest sons for the son's grandparents. Moses followed this tradition and named his eldest son, Michael, for his father Michael (1715). Only three children have ever been established for Michael and Marthey Worthington, William (1746), John (1748) and Michael (c. 1753). It is very unlikely they only had three sons. Arnett in her book, William Swaim, Fighting Editor, quotes Scott as saying Michael raised a large family.

A large group of Swaims have lived in the area of Athens County Ohio since 1809. Moses Swaim came to Athens County in about 1809. This group was completely left out of the" Swaim-Tysen Family History" by Lloyd B. Swaim, Joseph Mullane and Marjorie Decker Johnson.

Descendants of this family group have been told that their Swaim ancestors went from New Jersey to North Carolina to Ohio by way of Kentucky. In the home built by John Milton Swaim, Sr. in New Marshfield, Ohio, Athens County Ohio, recently destroyed by fire, were a bed and a bench that the family had been told was brought to Ohio from North Carolina by the original Athens Co. settlers. (Moses Swaim).

P.S. This house was later owned by Ada Kennedy and her mother, Faye Swaim Kennedy who was the 8th grade teacher of Gene and Joy Goff Thomas and JanGoff and Larry Jenkins. I, Janet Jenkins, knew Ada personally.

Had bought 121 acres in Swan Township, Athens Co. but now in Vinton County Ohio in 1809. She also found that Michael Swaim owned land in Elk Township which bordered Swan two properties away from Moses Swaim. Estate records of Moses Swaim and found that he had died 1818/1819 leaving his estate to his minor children: Shusanna, John, William, Barbara and Else. The dates of these children came of age and claimed their inheritance. It should be noted that establishing birth dates from these dates gives some discrepancies in William and John's birth dates from the dates given on their tombstones. (The tombstone dates are probably more accurate than the dates as to when Moses Swaim's children would be of age (21) to receive their inheritance.)

MOSES SWAIM'S PARENTS: Since it is definitely known that Moses Swaim's son, Michael, was born in Salisbury District, Guilford County North Carolina on December 3, 1788 from both census records and other documentation from his descendants, Moses' parents would have to be Michael and Marthey Worthington Swaim. This is where Michael (1715) settled in the 1750s when he and his family migrated from Frederick County Virginia to Rowan County North Carolina. His widow Marthey Worthington and his sons William and Michael were living there in the 1790 census. His son, John, settled at present day Level Cross, North Carolina near his wife's father, Marmaduke Vickrey. Guilford County North Carolina was formed from Rowan and Orange Counties in 1771.

Moses Swaim would have been born in Guilford County, North Carolina (Center Friends Community) around 1760 to Michael Swaim and Martha Worthington. It has been established that Moses' son, Michael, was born in Salisbury District in North Carolina in 1788. This would be Guilford County, North Carolina. Michael gave his birthplace as North Carolina in each Federal Census. It was Swaim family tradition at that time period to name the two eldest sons for their grandparents also establishing Michael Swaim as Moses' father.

Moses Swaim probably left North Carolina about 1789 and migrated into Kentucky since he is not in Guilford County North Carolina Census of 1790, Whether his first wife was living at that time is unknown.

List of marriages 1793-1837 for Clarke County Kentucky Moses's second marriage. His marriage license was dated September 27, 1796. He married Cathy Berry. Part of Clarke County Kentucky later became Montgomery County Kentucky. Also found this same record in the Mormon files in Dayton, Ohio.

Moses Swaim paid taxes in Montgomery County Kentucy in 1794, 1797, and 1808. He and his family migrated to Athens County Ohio about 1809.

Living in Montgomery County Kentucky in 1797 were Moses, John and Alexander Swaim. It has not been determined who John and Alexander were. There is a possibility Alexander Swaim who was with Moses Swaim in Kentucky could have been his son by his first wife. Notice that Moses Swaim named one of his sons, John Alexander Swaim, by his second wife after the John and Alexander who were with Moses in Kentucky. Moses could have been born in the early 1750s.

There have been many Moses Swaims in the Swaim family. Moses Swaim then migrated into Athens County Ohio about 1809. This Moses purchased 160 acres of land in 1809 in Swan Township, Athens County Ohio which is now in Vinton County Ohio. Records of Montgomery County Kentucky show him there from 1794 to 1808. He obtained a license to marry Cathy Berry in Carroll County Kentucky on September of 1796.

Previous to 1794, Moses had lived in the Salisbury District of Guilford County North Carolina. His eldest son, Michael, was born in the Salisbury District Guilford County, North Carolina on December 3, 1788. Therefore, he must have been married twice. The name of his first wife is unknown.

There is little doubt that this Moses Swaim was the son of Michael and Marthey Worthington Swaim.

Michael and Marthey Swaim settled in the Salisbury District, Guilford County NorthCarolina in the 1780s. Michael and his family had gone to present day Guilford County from Frederick County Virginia.

At the time of Michael's birth which was 1788; it was Swaim family tradition to name the eldest son for their grandfathers. Moses named his eldest son , Michael, for Moses' father. The only other possible parents for Moses are John Swaim and Charity Teague who had also gone to North Carolina in the 1750s. John Swaim and his wife Charity's son, Moses , has been identified and is not this Moses Swaim. They lived further about miles west of Michael.

The family's tie to North Carolina as we know now, were located in Athens County Ohio records.

Looking for original deeds in Athens Co, Ohio for Michael Swaim while doing so a deed was for 160 acres of land in Swan Township for Moses Swaim in 1809. This land was located two properties away from Michael Swaim in Elk Township. Moses Swaim had always appeared when searching for this family.

Checking the 1820 Athens County tax list Moses Swaim's property was listed as Moses Swaim heirs.

This estate record listed the minor heirs of Moses Swaim with the dates these children would be 21 years old inheriting their share of Moses Swaim's estate. Those minor children were: Shusanna Swaim, John Swaim, William Swaim, Barbara Swaim and Else Swaim .

This estate record made all the previous material collected on this family group fall into place.

From this estate record and the other material collected the following has been ancestrial history of this family group.

Moses Swaim was born in Guilford County North Carolina in the 1760-1765 likely time frame. He is no doubt the son of Michael of 1715 and Marthey Swaim. There were no other Swaims in Guilford County North Carolina for him to have been their son. Moses had known brothers of William of 1746, John of 1748, Michael of about 1753, and likely Alexander. These are the only children that have ever been established for Michael and Marthey. It is almost certain there are still missing children.

Moses Swaim married in Guilford County North Carolina around 1785, wife unknown and had a son, Michael Swaim born on December 3, 1788. There have been records found that Michael was born in Salisbury District, Guilford County Northe Carolina. He had a daughter Sarah who could have been born in 1786 or 1790-96. This daughter married Charles Camel in Athens County Ohio on November 29, 1811.

Moses and his family left Guilford County North Carolina before the 1790 census and after the birth of Michael. This would establish 1789 as the year of departure. Whether his first wife was still living at this time in unknown.

He next appears in Montgomery County Kentucky in 1794 paying taxes on his livestock and ___. In 1796, John Swaim and Alexander Swaim are on the Montgomery County Kentucky tax list. At the same time, there are descendants of Mathias Swaim of 1712 living in _____County, Kentucky. John , Alexander and Moses stayed together in Kentucky until 1808 when Moses disappeared from the tax list.

In September of 1796, Moses received a marriage license to marry Caty Berry in Clarke County Kentucky. This record has shown up in several places. A Swaim descendant has received a copy of this marriage license.

Moses Swaim, his second wife, Caty Berry, and his children: Michael, Sally, Katy, Susanna, John Alexander, William, Barbara and Else went to Swan Township Athens County Ohio in 1809. The family had previously lived in Montgomery County, Kentucky. I t appears Moses, Michael, likely Sally and Moses' first wife went to Kentucky from Guilford County North Carolina about 1789. The eldest son Michael was born in the Salisbury District, Guilford County North Carolina on December 3, 1788. The 1790 Census for Guilford County North Carolina does not list Moses or his wife and son Michael.

Was this Moses Swaim born in 1744 or was it 1765?

So, I figure Moses had John and Alexander as brothers.

I haven't been able to prove much about Michael, b. 1715 kids yet.  Maybe if
you have a chance, given the tax info. I gave above, you can try to track
down something on Michael.  My time is so very, very limited on my own stuff
(perils of being a professional - no time for own family - literally).  Hope
you are well and enjoy the above (if you don't already have it).  I have
grave concerns about the Moses to Michael, b. 1715 link, so if you can prove
it, let me know.  I have it as questionable.

Notes for CATY BERRY: 4TH GREAT GRANDMOTHER OF JANET GOFF JENKINS 
Source: Birth: IGI of the Latter Day Saints has a Caty Berry(notice the spelling of "Caty" born 1760 in Mason County Kentucky and then the IGI has a Caty Berry marrying Moses Swaim in Clark County Kentucky so perhaps they are the same especially with the first name on both the birth and marriage as being "Caty". The IGI report said that Caty was born 1760 in Mason County Kentucky but the Gedcom below said that she was born in Virginia but notice that her brothers were found in Mason County Kentucky so she must have lived with them. The IGI shows her parents as being Thomas Berry and Frances Kedall but the Gedcom below gives Thomas Berry and Frances Kendall. The address of the Gedcom submitter is Edith Mae Rankin Johnson , 110 Turkey Creek Road, San Antonio, Texas 78231. The following may or may not be the ancestors of Caty Berry who married Moses Swaim. I copied it in case I need it later on.

Hi there,

No, I haven't gotten anything more on that Berry family.  I'm working on Caty's brother 
Thomas line.  Interesting, in that he died in Mason, KY.  I am missing most data on two 
generations; Samuel son of Thomas, and Benjamin Franklin son of Samuel.

Apparently, Thomas acquired VA land in what was to become KY and some of his 
descendants moved there.  I didn't know that Caty did also.

This is my wife's family, so can't call you a distant cuz.

Hopefully, one of us will find out more.

January 24, 2002 — Marmaduke Vickery.

Just read with interest your website on the Swaim Family in North Carolina particularly.

But some area listed county information incorrectly,

Guilford County was formed in 1771 from Rowan and Orange County. The eastern portion was from Orange County and is where most of this information is partaining to. This could be confusing as it does not mention Orange and some of the records are with that county. Randolph was formed out of Guilford entirely in 1779..

Therefore, researches need to check in Orange county also, as we know some records never were moved. LDS has many errors such as these in their information and has caused much heartache.

Not interferring, but thought might be helpful to researchers.
My ancestors are from this area also, Marmaduke Vickery - AnieOaklee@aol.com.


Fri, 03 May 2002 — From: Susan Long — Susan.Long@rm.fcic.usda.gov:

Donald,

I'll make this brief; I think; I believe that I am related to this Worthington Family. The Joab Worthington listed as a son of John Worthington it looks like from the chart on the Worthington Family of Randolph Co NC, Notes , website.

My great great grandmother was Abi Hendrix; the daughter of Rev. Alexander Hendrix and Mary Huneycutt. Alexander Hendrix was the son of Jesse and Abi (Worthington) Hendrix. I believe that this is the same Abigail - daughter of Joab.

Source: "History of Laclede, Camden, Dallas, Webster, Wright, Texas, Pulaski, Phelps & Dent Counties, Missouri", Published in 1889 by Goodspeed Publishing Company.

"Rev. Alexander Hendrix is a resident of Piney Township, Pulaski County, MO., and was born in North Carolina on March 27, 1831, the son of Jesse and Abi (Worthington) Hendrix, who were North Carolinians, born August 23, 1809, and September 8, 1810, respectively. ... His widow is still living, and since 1871 has resided in Rush Co, IN, with her sixth son Henry L."

Anyhow this does seem to match the date on the Worthington website I mentioned; and there is also the fact that Joab Worthington is listed on the 1850 Rush County census; also Joab died in Lafayette County, MO. which by todays standards is only a few hours away from Pulaski County; but in the 1850's I'm sure it would have taken a few days or more.

I have found an Index to another Goodspeed book for Lafayette County, MO and it lists a biographical sketch of Joab Worthington. Once I find a copy of the book I am hoping it will list his children along with there married names for further proof besides the location and the same DOB.

Abi Worthington would have been my 4th great grandmother.

John Davis was a pious man, belonging to a sect called "Singing Quakers" who worshipped out of doors every day. He and Dorothea lived on Long Island until about 1705, when he, or they, went to Pilesgrove Township, Salem Co., NJ. Their son, Isaac, preceded them, followed soon after by the rest of the family. On 2 Jan 1704, John and Isaac Davis, of the Island of Nassau, New York, bought from John Ladd, a right to 700 acres of land, 350 acres to each. (John Smith was a witness). On 6 Mar 1704 an original survey was obtained by John and Isaac from the Proprietors of West Jersey for 700 acres, lying southeastwardly of John Test's land, in Pilesgrove, Salem Co. having footage of 35 chains (2310 feet) on the northeasterly side of Salem Creek, and extending northeastwardly 174 chains (over two miles). On 17 Jul 1718, John Davis, of Pilesgrove, transferred unto two of his sons, David and Malachy, husbandmen, of Salem Co., 237 acres in Pilesgrove Precince, beginning at a corner between said John Davis and Isaac Davis. The receipt was dated February, 1720 and acknowledged 19 Jan 1757 by Abraham Nelson, subscribing witness in order that it might be recorded (an indication that John Davis died after February 1720. From the wills of his sons John and David, and various deeds, it is clear that they were brothers, and that they had brothers, Isaac and Malachi, all of them sons of John Davis.



Gotherson



Taken from Dorothea Scott, Otherewise Gothersona and Hogben of Egerton House, Kent. 1611-1680
by G. D. SCULL, printed for private circulation by Parker and Co. Oxford, 1883.


After the sale in 1680, it would appear that Dorothea Gotherson and her children embarked, in the autumn of that year, for Oyster Bay, Long Island, in America. Here her husband had, as early as 1633, purchased a few acres of land in that settlement.

-'John Richbell, Merchant of Oyster Bay, sold the 28th August, 1633, to Daniel Gotherson, his two dividents or allotments of Land, containing together by estimacon Ten acres, situated in Oyster Bay, late in the occupation of Mark Meggs and Walter Salter'."

Dorothea, a younger daughter of Mrs. Gotherson, after their arrival on Long-Island, married John Davis, a Welsh emigrant, one of the sect called " singing Quakers," who resided at Oyster Bay, where his name appears in the Assessor's list for 1683, rated at .£40 per annum. Here he lived until about the year 1705, when he removed to Pilesgrove Township, Salem County, New Jersey, some of his sons having preceded him in that county. All his children were born on LongIsland. John Davis lived to the age of a hundred years. None of his sons left heirs male except his third son David, who became a large landowner, and a judge of the Salem County Courts. He married Dorothy Cousins, an Englishwoman, who lived to the age of ninety-six. They had two sons and five daughters. Of these, Sarah married William Griscom; Mercy married Thomas Redmond ; Amy married John Gill of Haddonfield (N. J.); Hannah married Richard Wood of Greenwich (N. J.); David married Martha Cole (and left five sons and two daughters); Abigail died single, and Jacob Davisj married Esther Wilkins in 1761. Hannah Davis, who married Richard Wood, left two sons, Richard and James. Richard Wood (born 1755) married, secondly, Elizabeth Bacon,

only by women, some of whome were much better than herselfe." And, we may be sure, the old family jewels of Mrs. Gotherson were brought into requisition to complete the adornment of Mrs. John Scott's person.

' From Power of Attorney granted by Mrs. Gotherson to Governor Lovelace.

> Jacob Davis, writing to his granddaughter, Lydia Lippincott, in 1814, says, "As to my mother's ancestors I cannot remember any of them, but have heard her say that her grandmother was a very rich friend in England, whose name is gone out of my mind ; and I think I was informed she was a widow, and that she or her daughter, my grandmother, married to a man who so far ran through her estate as that my mother had but very little portion of this world's property, but chose that good part which I believe never was taken from her, who was a pattern of moderation to all men, and even in that of bodily labour."

and had five sons and two daughters, viz., Dr. George Bacon, Richard D , Charles S., Horatio C., Hannah D., Ann Elizabeth (all of whom settled in Philadelphia), and David, who died single. James, son of Richard and Hannah Davis Wood, had three sons and two daughters, of whom Hannah Ann married Isaac Tyson of Baltimore, Md., and left issue four sons and one daughter. Jacob Davis, the youngest child of Judge David Davis (died in 1820), left five sons and two daughters ; his youngest daughter Esther married Joshua Lippincott, and left an only surviving daughter Lydia, who married David Scull, of Philadelphia, in 1823, and had three sons and five daughters. She dying in 1854 he remarried Hannah Davis Wood, the great grand daughter of Judge David Davis and Dorothy his wife.

A branch of the Scotts of Scot's-hall was settled at Glemsford, Suffolk. Richard Scott of this branch was among the first settlers of Rhode Island, and one of the fifty-four joint proprietors of the Roger Williams' purchase from the Narragansett Sachem, embracing the entire territory of the present city and county of Providence (except the town of Cumberland, and a part of Scituate, and a portion of the county of Kent). Richard Scott went over in the ship "Griffin" with Rev. John Lathrop, in the year 1634. Mrs. Anne Hutchinson and her husband came in the same ship, and probably Katharine Marbury her sister, afterwards the wife of Richard Scott. Both Richard and his wife joined the Society of Friends, and Stephen Hopkins says they were almost the earliest converts in New England. Katharine Scott was imprisoned and whipped for disseminating her new views. She addressed the following remonstrance to Governor John Winthroph:—

"For the hand of John Winthrop, called Governor at Harverd in New England, theis deliver with trust.

"Providence, this 17 of the 4'* month, 1658.

"JOHN WlNTHROP,—Think it not hard to be called soe, seeing Jesus, our Saviour and Governor, and all that were made honorable by him, that are recorded in Scripture were called soe. I have writ to thee before, but never hard whether they came to thy hand: my last, it may be, may troble thee, conserning my sonne ; but truly I had not propounded it to thee but to satisfie his mind, and to prevent his going where wee did more disafect; but I heare noe more of his mind that way. I hope his mind is taken up with the thing wch is the most necessary, and first to seeke his kingdome, &c., therefore let y' be burred in silence, but my later requeist I must revise, and that is only out of true love and pity to thee, that thou maiest be free and not troubled, as I have heard thy father was, upon his death bed, at the banishment of my dear Sister Hutchenson and others. I am sure they have a sad cup to drink, that are drunk with the blod of the Saints: O my friend, as thou lovest the prosperity of thy soull and the good of thy posterity, taike heed of having thy hand or hart or tounge lifted up against those persons that the wise yet follish world in scorne calls quaikers: for they are the messengers of the Lord of Hosts, wch hee hath in his large love and pity sent into theis parts, to

k Massachusetts' Historical Society's collections.

gather his out casts and the distressed of the chilldren of Isreall; and they shall accomplish the worke, let the rage of men be never soe great: taike heed of hindering of them, for noe weapen found against them shall prosper. It is given to them not only to believe but to sufer, &c., but woe to them by whom they sufer. O my friend, try all things, and waiy it by the balance of the sanctuary : how can you try without hearing of them ? for the eare tries words, as the mouth tastes meat, I dare not but beare witnese against the unjust and small lawes of my contrymen in this land : for cursed are all they that cometh not out to help the Lord against the mighty, and all that are not with him are against him, &c. Woe be to you that gather and not by him, and cover with a covering and not with his spirit, weh soe I desire thou maiest escape.

"KATHARINE SCOTT."

In England, nothing now remains of Scot's-hall but its foundations. The property has passed into the possession of a descendant through a female branch. During the period when the family of the Scotts of Kent was at its greatest prosperity, there were three other families in the county, who, although connected with it by marriages, were to some extent its rivals for the leading local influence. These were the Scotts of Scot's-hall, the Poynings of Ostenhangre Castle, the Heymans of Somerfield, and the Knatchbulls of Mersham Hatch. This gave rise to the Kentish proverb,—

"Scot's-hall shall have a fall;
Ostenhangre was built in angre (pride);
Somerfield will have to yield ;
And Mersham Hatch shall win the match."

The Right Honble. Knatchbull Hugessen (lately created Lord Brabourne) is now Lord of the Manor of Scot's-hall, so that the ancient Kentish proverb is verified, for

" Mersham Hatch has won the match."

DANIEL GOTHERSON.

NOTHING can be ascertained about the anteicedents of Daniel Gotherson, before the year 1650, except that he and a partner, Francis Soane, of Newington, Surrey, were in business in Southwark, as chapmen and coptners, and that they became bankrupt in July, 1650, and a commission in bankruptcy granted in their case April 22nd,

1651. On March loth, 1651, he is alluded to as Captain Gotherson, so it would appear as if after his failure he had entered Cromwell's army. On October 31st, 1653, he presented a petition as Major Gotherson to the Council of State for some return from them for certain services, not named, but perhaps rendered in the army, which claim was referred to a committee of three members, to report upon. In 1663 we find him among the Royalists, and secretly supplying the Government with information of the movements of the Presbyterians in Kent.

"To Joseph Williamson, Secretary To
Henry Bennet, Lord Arlington.

" HoNble Sir,—Since I saw you last I have had some discourse with some persons that are able to head parties and contrive disturbances, and I find ther Spirits very Bitter, but cannot understand or gather at present yett that ther is anything possible for them to effect at present. I wold not give you the occasion of feare without sufficient cause, but answer that ther cannot bee anything acted but I shall have timely notice of it, which that you may prevent it I have thought good to give you the names of some persons that I know to be active and dangerous, yett think it a better way to correspond with them then secure them with out something done by them which appearing obviously will make them for ever incapable of doeing mischief. I shall waight on you very suddenly and for what you please to command me and faithfully serve you to the death,

" who am, Sir,
" your very humble servant,

"daniel Gotherson.

" Hunsden-house, London, " August 26'*, 1663."

With the above letter is given the names, addresses, and notes of the conduct of numerous persons in London, including Major Robert Hampson, "who raised the prodigie about the blood in a pond in Newington Green," and Alderman Mat. Hardy, of Lambeth, who " was present, looking over St. James' Park wall, and said, 'his heart leapt for joy when he saw the blow given to chop the King's head off.'" Then follows a long list of names of officers in Kent who are inimical to the Government.

"To Lord Arlington, Secretary Ok State.

" Honoured Sir,—Since I last was with you, I have proceeded to discover anything which might serve the end discussed of, to that end I have personally bin in company with the eminent disenters in this County, and finding such a trusty hand to send to you as this Bearer, Captain Burchall, I thought it convenient to give you an account that I find an Implacable Bitter Spirit amongst men, but noe designe producing very little head of present action, unless amongst the Presbyterians, which I have cause to suspect, they being very Bold ; and it doth very much concern you to have a watchful care after them to prevent them, I will proceed with all the vigilant care I can, and if I find anything materiall, I shall not faile to give you timly Notice, and I impart my discoveries unto you by Letter or in person, and take leave, Sir, to subscribe myselfe your most faithful Servant,

"daniel Gotherson.

" Egerton-house in Godmersham, October 2d, 1663."

From the manner in which the above letters are written, it will be observed that their writer had in 1663 considerably relaxed in his strict observances and practices of the Society of Friends. Three years after he was seized with a fatal illness in London, a little before the breaking out of the great fire. Up to the last moment he was under the delusion that he was the bond-fide owner of a large Long-Island estate, and made a regular division of it in his non-cupative will.

" MEMORANDUM. That on or about the five and twentieth day of August, 1666, Daniell Gotherson of the parish of Godmersham in the County of Kent, Esquire, being of perfect disposing mind and memory, with a serious intention to make his last will and Testament in these or the like words following (viz'.), hee desired Mr. William

ffysher, silke throwster and cittizen of London, and Deborah Gotherson his eldest daughter, to take and dispose of, lett or sell for the best advantage they could all his Estate both reall and personall lyeing in Godmersham or elsewhere in the County of Kent, for and to the use of Dorothy his wife and children and payment of his debts. But for house and marshland lyeing in Rumney Marsh in the County of Kent, he desired may be reserved unsould if possibly it may be for and to the use of his said wife and children, and for his lands lying in Long-Island neare New England beyond the seas, he did dispose thereof as followeth, (viz'.) hee did give to the said Mr. William ffisher and his heires for ever, 3,000 acres thereof, and to his daughter Deborah and her heires for ever 3,000 acres thereof, and to Jane Brymington and her sonne and their heires for ever 3,000 acres thereof, and all the rest and residue of his said lands lying in the said Long-Island or elsewhere beyond the seas he did give and bequeath to his said wife and children, as well that child wherewith she was enseint as the rest, equally to be divided among them, share and share alike, and to their heires for ever; he did likewise give and confirme unto the said William fnsher and Elizabeth Craydon of S'. Martins in the fficlds, spinster, and to their heires and assignes and either of them for ever, all that his fower Messuages or Tenements of freehold saytuate and being in 3 Tunne Alley in the Burrough of Southwarke and the County of Surrey, according to his deed of guift in writing dated the day of the date hereof, and did likewise give and confirme unto the said Mr. Wm. ffisher and Elizth. Craydon their Executors, administrators and assigns the remainder of a Lease of a certaine Messuage, a Tenement scituate in Kennington in the parish of Lambeth, in the County of Surrey, together with an Orchard and Garden, thereto belonging according to his deed of guift in writing likewise dated the day of the date hereof, and did nominate and appoint the said Wm. Fisher and his daughter Deborah Gotherson full and whole Executors of his last will and Testament non-cupative, and did desire them to see the same faithfully performed. These words or the like in effect, the said Daniel Gotherson did speake and declare in the hearing and presence of Samuel Bosworth and Elizabeth Colosore and other credible witnesses.

Swaim was thirteen years old, and thence to Salamonie Township, Huntington County, Ind., in 1836. On the 26th of April, 1836, James Morrison showed the "newcomer" land in Sections 27 and 28. In due time Mr. Swaim entered an "eighty and a forty" and received the patents for the same, dated May 30,1837, by "Martin VanBuren". These parchments now a half a century old are still in the hands of the Swaims, as well as the old farm made by the father and son two miles east of Warren and known as the Swaim "homestead." Samuel's parents did all in their power to educate their children, Samuel H., Mary A., Elizabeth, Christopher C., Cyntha A. and Ruth C. But opportunities in a state cursed with slavery were not good. Samuel, however, mastered Webster's "easy standard of pronunciation," The "Introduction,""English Reader," "Columbian Orator," "Pikes Arithmetic," and some lessons in the "New Testament" during his childhood days. Only a few months' tuition were afforded him after his thirteenth year. During the winter of 1840 and '41, he enjoyed the instruction of Judge Nimrod Johnson and Prof. S. K. Hoshour of Cambridge Seminary, Wayne County, Ind. He was married to Miss Elizabeth P. Back, daughter of Aaron and Margaret E. L. Back. The former was born in Madison County, Virginia, June 18, 1785, and was a soldier during the war of 1812. He fell from his chair in instant death December 13, 1868, aged eighty-three years, five months and twenty-five days. The latter was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, December 16,1788, (her maiden name was Hammer). She died January 12, 1851, aged sixty-three years and twenty-seven days. They both sleep side by side, in the "Good Cemetery near Warren. Elizabeth, their daughter, and the wife of S. H. Swaim was born in Preble County, Ohio, November 28, 1821. The demand for a teacher placed S. H. Swaim in the school house in District No. 8, in 1814, and he taught not less than twenty terms of sixty to seventy days each, closing his last term in 18ti6, when the standard of license and the number ot branches taught shut him off, and the children he had taught outranked him in the school room. The old man rejoices in the advancement made, and says the standard of requirements of to day, needs further advancement to secure the greatest success. In 1840, when in his twentieth year, he united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, and has ever since adhered to the same, with an undeviating steadfastness, at the same time he abandoned forever alcohol in all its forms, and has been an uncompromising opponent of the liquor traffic for forty-six years. He has taken and maintained such advanced grounds on the question of prohibition, as to receive some strictures from his fellow citizens. He served one term as surveyor of Huntington County. He always took an active interest in township affairs, and assisted in locating the school houses of the same. In May, 1847, his church saw proper to confer on him a license as local preacher, and "Deacon's order," in September, 1855, and "Elder's order" in September, 1859, and while engaged in the business of his farm for the last forty years, the has been no idler in the church. He taxed himself day and night to read up his church literature, and as a supply filled the position as pastor in the church three terms and was always ready, when called upon to officiate at funerals and marriages. He has also given close attention to political and national questions as they were presented on the passing page of history during the last half century. He and his loving wife have reared a family of seven children, two of them, one son and one daughter, have gone to rest, the other five, two sons and three daughters, are living to comfort their parents in the decline of life. Their names were: William F., Mahala M., Harriet A., Simeon A., Mary A., Elizabeth A., and David S., of whom, Mahala M. and Simeon A. are deceased. The former was married to Lemuel Colbert and when called across the dark river left two children, Mary E. and Samuel E., of whom Mary E. is married to Byron Thompson and blessed with three children, including these great grandchildren, Jesse E., Jennie M. and Julia Thompson, Mr. Swaim has lived to see his relatives in seven different generations, which is remarkable. He looks back upon his past life with pleasure, and can call to mind many incidents of note connected with it. We will mention one: When one of the little girls who attended his school had grown to womanhood and her hand was sought in marriage, Mr. Swaim officiated, and in after years solemnized the marriage of her son and daughter. He began life on his own responsibility in limited circumstances, and after the death of his father it required considerable tact and labor on his part, to hold the old homestead and to assist his mother in paying a few small debts left by the father. He and his wife are enjoying a retired life in their comfortable home in Warren where they expect to reside until they are called to that final resting place of all humanity.
