Abner Johnson Jr. and Polly moved to Giles Co. by 1840 and were still living there in 1850 with son John W. Johnson (1828), a schoolteacher. Abner Johnson Jr and Polly moved to Porter Township, Christian Co., MO, during the Civil War. They may have been living near Batesville, AR during the 1860 census. According to Narcissa's obituary, Abner Johnson Jr. and a son laid the brick for the new courthouse at Ozark in 1867. Children of Abner and Nancy Brackett Johnson http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Gideon Johnson died during the 1840s in Maury Co., although no burial site has been found countywide. By the 1850 census, Celia Johnson, age 51, was living amidst the Johnson settlements with children Emily Johnson, 21, Celia Johnson, 18, Felix Johnson, 15, and Thoma Johnson s, 24. One daughter, Alvis "Ann" Harris Johnson, married Albert Beverly Stubblefield in Maury Co. on May 10, 1832. He was the son of Peter Stubblefield and Sarah Harris, who moved from Wilkes Co., GA to Wayne Co., TN via Maury. Children of Abner and Nancy Brackett Johnson http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm


In 1850, Abner Johnson and Nancy were living in a household headed by their granddaughter, widow Matilda Kenamore McCaslin and her three children, with William and Mary Johnson Kenamore, Abner Johnson 's granddaughter Sarah Ann Johnson and grandson William C. Duke. Abner Johnson died on Oct. 22, 1850, and Nancy is believed to have died in 1853.

She was still alive in late 1852 when she transferred the pension benefits from Abner to herself. Their graves are unmarked, although his name is on a monument in Columbia, TN that honors Revolutionary veterans buried in Maury Co.  http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm


October 1852 William Kenamore and Mary had seven daughters and one son (see separate section) while living in Giles and Maury Cos., just south of Bigbyville.

In October 1852 William Kenamore went west to scout for land in Greene Co., MO, and bought a farm in the area that later became Christian Co. just south of Springfield.

By 1854, they had relocated with their entire family of grown children.

William Kenamore operated one of the largest and most prosperous farms in the entire county. But he died just two days short of his 75th birthday as the Civil War raged in his neighborhood, and his son-in-law bought the property in April 1866.



Mary moved to her daughter's James River valley home near what became Nixa and died there in September 1870. Children of Abner and Nancy Brackett Johnson http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Eliza Johnson Barnett's son John Lucius Barnett (1853-1918) in November 1876 married Mary Melissa Hunt, the daughter of Henderson Maynard and Judah Hunt. John and Melissa Barnett had at least seven children, six of them daughters. Son Robert Frank married his cousin Hester McConnell of Nixa, the daughter of William Alexander McConnell and Mary Bell Ray. Children of Abner and Nancy Brackett Johnson http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm


Alvis and Albert Beverly Stubblefield moved to Springfield, Greene Co., MO in the last of the Johnson family wagon trains in the fall of 1854. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
A daughter of Robert and Eliza Johnson Barnett, Sarah A.E. Barnett, married Matthew Duff McCroskey Jr. in 1868 shortly after the family moved to Christian Co. Children of Abner and Nancy Brackett Johnson http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Eliza Johnson Barnett died on Valentine's Day 1901, and she is buried at Nixa's Payne Cemetery. Both her son John Lucius Barnett and grandson Robert Frank died in the great flu epidemic of 1918 and are buried in McConnell Cemetery. Children of Abner and Nancy Brackett Johnson http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm



Abner Johnson Jr. and Polly are found in Porter Township in the 1870 census. Mary died before 1876 when she is not shown with her husband in the state census for Christian Co. Abner Johnson Jr. vanished by 1880 and apparently died in Porter Township, although he possibly moved to and died in Reno Co., KS where his son Lee Johnson located. One of Lee Johnson's daughters, Mary Matilda Johnson, however, returned to Christian Co. after marrying Henry Harrison Keltner, who owned a farm near McConnell Cemetery in Porter Township.

#1763

1763 died John Granville, who never saw his vast North Carolina lands, forcing his land offices to close. Bear Creek is northwest of Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina, by about 20 miles in Davie County. An explanation is needed for these deeds. Consequently, it was not possible for a settler to obtain a land title between 1763 and 1778 within the Granville area. In 1778, this changed and a claim for land could be entered in county records, because British land rights ceased during the American Revolution. http://www.planetmurphy.org/pagebuild.php?pagebody1=WilcoxJohn.htm



John Granville,

1763 - John T. Nicks [Sr.] and wife Margaret Edwards James Denny of Longchester Co., for 220 pounds North Carolina money 650 acres on N. bank of N. fork of Buffalo Creek, including improvements of hisson-in-law Moses Short [Rowan Co. Deed Book, p. 63]

1763 The purchase of 160 acres by William Hill on Rock House Creek from James Sims in 1763 (Rowan Co. Deed Book 5, p. 355). Rock House Creek is south of the Dan River, and empties into it.


William Hill

William Hill very quickly acquired the warrants #160, and #161 on Feb. 26, 1778. One was for 350 acres, and the other for 382 acres, both with his improvements (meaning a house or structure, which indicates he had been living there). Both were on Buffaloe Island Creek, one adjacent to Joseph Gibson, the other to Henry Scales. #161 was surveyed in July 1779 and the grant #298 was issued March 1, 1780. #160 was surveyed in 1779 and issued as grant #313 also on March 1, 1780. (Guilford Deed Book 2, p. 156, p. 165)

 

These were followed by:



 

Warrant #311 issued to Henry Grogan for 200 acres on both sides of Little Buffloe Cr., a branch of Matrimony Creek. This was surveyed for 150 acres in 1779 and grant issued March 1, 1780.

Warrant #879 issued to Gustavus Hill (brother to William?) on Dec. 1, 1778 for 200 acres on North fork of Buffloe Island Creek, with improvement, next to Winkfield Shropshire, William Hill, and Gibson on south. One of the chain carriers was Henry Grogan.

 

Warrant #1638 issued to Thomas Bridges (brother to Hannah Bridges Hill) for 350 acres on North side of Buffloe Island Cr. William Bridges was one of the chain carriers and the grant #760 was issued on Oct. 14 1783.

 

Warrant #2111 issued to Winkfield Shropshire (either brother or father of Catherine Shropshire Hill, wife of Thomas Hill) for 100 acres on Buffalow Creek. One of the chain carriers was St. John Shropshire, and the grant #816 was issued Oct. 14, 1783. http://www.genealogy.com/users/h/a/i/Mary-Helen-Haines/FILE/0019page.html
The Hills and Shropshires made plans to move away. William Shropshire received a land grant in the newly opened territory of Wilkes County, Georgia. Joseph Pain Johnson, married to William’s sister, Elizabeth, sold his Buffalo Cr. Land in 1786 to John Hill and moved to Georgia as well. Then William Hill sold his 382 acres in March 1788, and purchased land in nearby Surry County. http://www.genealogy.com/users/h/a/i/Mary-Helen-Haines/FILE/0019page.html
Rev. William Hill removed from Caroline County, Va. was a Baptist minister, a sterling patriot and an honest man. During the war of the Revolution his stirring appeals stimulated the Whigs of his section. He was a chaplain in the American army at the battle of Guilford Court House. His son William was then about eight years old, and he well recollected hearing the roar of the artillery being only four miles distant from the field of battle. He has been heard to relate that a short time prior to this battle, a band of Tories called at this father's house, where he and his mother were, and enquired for his father. On being told that he was not at home they departed, avowing their intention to hang him if they found him. He had incurred their hate by his devotion to the patriot cause. He was a member of the Convention that met a Hillsborough in August 1775, to improvise a system of government for the State. --the maiden name of his wife, the mother of the subject of this memoir, was Eliza Halbert. She was a native of Caroline county, Va."
The December 1928 issue of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly Magazine states that Rev. William Hill, Jr., came to NC a few years before his father, and owned land on the Dan River, in today's Rockingham Co., NC. His plantation was called "Popular Hill." The magazine article says Reverend William Hill lived there until his death.

1778 Aug 17 - Surry Co., NC - Land Entry #595 - William Hill Jr. enters 200 acres of land in Surry Co. on Ash Camp Creek the waters of Townfork adjoining Thomas Evan's claim and my own deeded land, including the above place from compliment. Warrant granted to C. M.

1778 Aug 17 - Surry Co., NC - Land Entry #596 - William Hill, Jr. enters 150 acres of land on Ash Camp Creek the waters of Townfork adjoining Thomas Heaths and my former including the above place for quantity. Warrant granted C. M.

The first Donnells in central N.C. came as part of the Nottingham Company of Presbyterians who began to arrive in a predetermined area then in Anson Co. in 1750 Some 23,000 + acres had been set aside by agreement between the Nottingham Presbyterian Church, Chester, PA and land representatives of Lord Granville.

1768 Rowan County tax list of, Thomas Donnell's district.  This land was in an area that became part of Guilford County when it was created two years later in 1770 and started administrative operations in 1771.

In 1771 the area was broken up to form Guilford and in 1785 the northern part of Guilford was formed into Rockingham Co. In that final formation, some of the colonists wound up in Rockingham Co. These people established two principal churches ca. 1756, Buffalo (on North Buffalo Creek) and Alamance in the southern area, (lying on the waters of Big Alamance Creek).

1763-68 Records of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina show Andrew Hampton of Dutchman's Creek as Administrator of the John Wilson estate; a name shown earlier in Hampshire County with land adjacent to Phipps land.

ORANGE CO Road Orders for 1734-1749, July 1984, by Ann Brush Miller, Research Hist for Orange Co Hist. Society, VA Highway & Trans Research Council, Charlottesville, VA

1748 an historic roadway was cut across Lunenburg's western lands from north to south, but was not done by court order. Morgan Bryan, a Pennsylvania Quaker, had led a body of settlers down into Virginia, along the Shenandoah. In 1748 Bryan decided to move his family to the Yadkin River in North Carolina. He made the journey down the Valley of Virginia, crossing the Blue Ridge Mountains through Maggoty Gap (near Boone's Mill), and continued across what is now Franklin and Henry Counties into North Carolina. With the aid of his sons, three months were required to cut and clear a way for the passage of his wagon. In 1753 the Moravian brethren travelled Bryan's road when they came from Pennsylvania to make their settlement in North Carolina, (now Winston-Salem).
They kept a diary of the trip, and noted that after crossing Smith River they came to John Hickey's store. The roadway became known as Morgan Bryan's Road, and was travelled by thousands who made their homes in the Carolinas. http://www.myvirginiagenealogy.com/va_county/pi.htm

In 1748, the Bryan clan established a settlement in Yadkin Valley, North Carolina, after losing a dispute with Lord Fairfax in Virginia. During the 1770s, members of the Bryan family opened Kentucky for settlement, and later Missouri http://fieldgenealogy.com/p895.htm

1768 Rowan County tax list of Morgan Bryan is found that Benjamin Bentley and Thomas Bentley are included at one poll each. Benjamin was most likely married at this time as he was living separately from his father. Benjamin Bentley, along with his parents, brother, and sisters lived in old Rowan (now Davie) County on Bear Creek, a few miles south of Mocksville. http://yeahpot.com/mikeshortt/thomasbentleysr.html


1769, Botetourt was formed from Augusta Parish when Botetourt Co was formed from Augusta Co
1769 Berkley parish Formed from [1st.] St. George's Parish, which continued serving Spotsylvania Co.
1769 Beckford Parish was formed from Frederick Parish in 1769. When Dunmore Co was formed from Frederick Co, Beckford went with it. Dunmore Co was renamed Shenandoah Co in 1778
1769 Norborne Parish Formed from Frederick Parish, Frederick Co. Still mentioned in "Hening's Statutes" in 1777, so I suspect it went into Berkeley Co (now WV) when it was formed from Frederick in 1772

1772 Shenandoah County formed from Frederick (Originally Dunmore Co, renamed in 1778)

1777 Rockbridge Parish Formed, with Rockbridge Co, from parts of Augusta and Botetourt

From 1778 until his death 1800 (probate started), John Bryan (1) owned land and probably lived around eight miles southwest of where Morgan Bryan, Sr. last lived.  John Bryan, Sr. lived in an area of Rowan County, North Carolina that, in 1836, became west central part of Davie County, North Carolina.  Through numerous land transactions, it has been determined that John Bryan (1) lived in Rowan County, North Carolina from 1778 to 1800 and that he had the following neighbors (some deeds from the probate records):   Benjamin Gaither (1778 - 1803), Thomas Pennery (1778 - 1796), William Williams (1778 - 1787), Robert Luckey (1778 - 1787), John Van Eaton (1778), Valentine Huff (1783 - 1802), John Adams (1784), Mary Luckey (1784 - 1796), Ralph Vaneleave (1784), John Hughey (1784), George Wilcoxon (1784), John Bryan, Jr. (1787 - 1797), Daniel Sutherland (1787), John Pinchback (1787), Richard Speaks (1787), William Patrick (1787), Jacob Nichols (1787), Samuel Reed (1787), Jacob Trout (1796 - 1801), John Little, Sr. (1801), Beal Ijams (1801) and Jacob Coon (1802).   It is also known from these deeds that they all lived near the following Creeks:  Bear Creek (great majority of deeds), Hunting Creek and Dutchman’s Creek. http://www.rcasey.net/bryan/bryjohn1.htm

1797 ERA: The will of John Bryan was signed in 1797 and probated in 1801.  This will clearly establishes that the wife of John Bryan was named Sarah.  Land associated with this will clearly establish that this was the will of the John Bryan who lived on or near Bear Creek and Dutchman’s Creek (this is approximately eight miles southwest from where Morgan Bryan last lived).  Also, several children of John Bryan (1) are known to resided in this same area.  To date, this author has never seen any primary documentation that links John and Frances Bryan (or any of their known children) to the area around where Morgan Bryan last lived. http://www.rcasey.net/bryan/bryjohn1.htm
