SUSANNA 'SUSAN' TYREE Albemarle County, Virginia

TYREE Albemarle County, Virginia

20 September 1768 Jacob Tyree Location: Albemarle County Description: 192 acres in the Rich Cove

My Notes: Rich Cove is part of the Rockfish River where Terisha Turner lived and one Janett Murrell came back to from Matrimony Creek Rockingham Co NC. These lands on Cove Creek Albemarle Co will go into Amherst Co Va and then into Nelson Co Va.

Researcher Nel Hatchers Notes:



Edward Hatcher Sr md an unknown Jamison. There is no evidence in the records of her given name. His last kid by 1st wife was Ed hathcer Jr bn c1672.


He md his 2nd wife, Mary (probably Ward), before Apr 1684 when she releases dower as Mary Hatcher. Her son and only child, Seth, was bn c1686.


Ed Sr's dau, Martha, DID NOT marry Cottrell. Ed hatcher Sr's Martha was bn c1664 and md Richard Gower c1680. That's well proven by Ed Sr's records.


No parents have been proven for Martha Hatcher who md Tom Cottrell and it's possible she was a HACKER. An early settler [1630s] was one John HACKER whose name was, on at least one occasion, transcribed as Hatcher and subsequently attached by many people as a son of Wm the Im. Bogus! But the garbage piles higher :-) From: nelhatch

Hacker of Henrico Co. Va

In looking thru the Library of Virginia I find no Hacker families in Henrico Co. Va. not that this is the only source, but I did find the Thomas Correll Families: Tuckahoe Creek is MY DNA JOHNSON Lines strong hold.

Notes: Edward Hatcher

Edward Hatcher Jr, as was his brother John Hatcher, was living in Henrico prior to their respective moves to Tuckahoe and then to NC. Their father, Edward Hatcher Sr, died in 1711 and it was after the estate settlement that his kids began moving west and south. Brother Seth Hatcher went to Orangeburg, SC

1831, Joshua Curtis traveled to Wilkesboro and signed for Nancy's share of Thomas Cottrell's estate, a cash distribtuion. This document proves that the 1794 marriage bond with no name for the bride was for Joshua and Nancy Cottrell, as most everyone believed. But the handful of estate records do not say where he (or any of the other heirs) lived at the time. They signed at different times over a several month period, which would not have been the case if they all lived nearby.

Hi Brenda -
I was going through my emails (note that I am only on "B") and your note reminded me of a couple tidbits I have come across since then. I am oh so close to closing the loop on Joshua Jr. and thought it would be worthwhile getting your thoughts. I have worked through the Wilkes County tax and deed records, and have improved my understanding of who was where when.

In 1794, the same year he married Nancy Cottrell, JOSHUA CURTIS JR. moved to Capt. Dyer's District, which was the Cove Creek part of what became Ashe County.

By that time, David Curtis had returned from the Pendleton District of South Carolina and was there also. In 1796, Joshua Sr. moved to Cove Creek, but JOSHUA CURTIS, JR.. returned to Buffalo Cove in Wilkes County, appearing on the 1797 tax list.

The remaining records for "Joshua Curtis" in Wilkes County refer to JOSHUA CURTIS JR. He acquired parcels of land totaling 206 acres, which he sold in September 1808, the deed you refer to below. in October 1808, "JOS CURTIS" requested a letter of dismissal from the Yadkin River Baptist Church (where his brother Samuel was an active member) because he planned to leave.

In 1831, Joshua Curtis traveled to Wilkesboro and signed for Nancy's share of Thomas Cottrell's estate, a cash distribtuion. This document proves that the 1794 marriage bond with no name for the bride was for Joshua and Nancy Cottrell, as most everyone believed. But the handful of estate records do not say where he (or any of the other heirs) lived at the time. They signed at different times over a several month period, which would not have been the case if they all lived nearby.
There is a very careful researcher named Nancy Harvey, who you may know, who is a descendant of the Joshua Curtis who appeared in the 1820 and 1830 censuses for Humphreys County, TN, the 1840 census for Benton County, TN and who left a brief will in Benton County in 1842. She has done a good job of locating and proving his descendants, a single son Thomas and a bunch of girls. We both agree that the Joshua Curtis who appears in the 1812 Humphreys County tax list (along with his brother William) is highly likely to be the same Joshua, except she is looking "backward" from Benton County and I am looking "forward." from Wilkes. I am ready to paste in her Joshua research with Joshua research, except she properly points out I am missing a fact or two.
So what's the problem? The age of "Joshua" in all censuses is consistent. However, Nancy (Cottrell) Curtis, who was living in 1850, gave her age as 70, making her born about 1780, which is consistent with her census reporting in 1820, 1830 and 1840. The 1800 Wilkes County census (and her 1794 marriage date) make her at least a year or so younger. Much more problematic is the four females under age 10 that Joshua reported in the 1800 census in Wilkes County. His documented descendants were born starting in 1802--none before 1800. It is possible they had four children in six years before 1800, all of whom were dead by 1840 or so, but that's quite a leap of faith. One problem with the 1800 census is that Samuel and Joshua Jr. appear in Wilkes Co, and Joshua Sr. in Ashe County, but William and Edy (Cottrell) Curtis are not listed. William and Edy appear to be the adults living with Joshua Sr. in Ashe County. However, William and Edy had three children under 10 at that time, but no such children are listed in Joshua Sr.'s household. It's certainly plausible that Joshua Jr. & Nancy's household was not solely composed of their own children, but there's no way to figure that out.
Any thoughts?

William Curtis b: ABT 1760 in Ashe Co., NC reported to have married Edith "Edy" COTTRELL reported daughter of Thomas Cotrell and Nancy Allieson To Thomas Cotrell and wife Suzanna Petterson (Patterson?) to Thomas Cotrell and wife Martha Hatcher ( Thomas Cotrell owned lands on Tuckahoe Creek waterway system)

Also reported to have married Polly Drake Further proof is need that William Curtis md Polly is son of Joshua Curtis, sr. of Wilkes, NC & Davidson, TN. http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=bhreed&id=I34033

The 1790 Federal Census Wilkes County, NC First Company indicates the following

CURTIS SAMUEL 1 white male & 2 white females over 16
CURTIS, JOSHUA 2 white males over age 16; 8 white females over age 16

Anna Curtis b: ABT 1764 in Ashe Co., NC reported to have married Daniel Ward: born 17 JUL 1779 in Ashe Co .North Carolinia reported son of Benjamin WARD and wife has been proven by Bible records and family letters to be Celia Stewart, daughter of John Stewart and Susannah Tanner. Celia is also known as Selah and Celey Ward. To Benjamin Ward and wife mary Duke to Richard Ward and wife Frances to Seth Ward and wife Anne Hatcher to Capt John Ward and wife Grace

Anne Hatcher is reported daughter of Henry Hatcher and Anne Lound ( Check with Nel Hatcher on this)

My Notes: This family of Capt. John Ward and wife Grace owned the first lands on Wards Creek and Capt. Wards Widow sold lands to William Hatcher the Immigrant. The Tanner families are married into the 2nd and or 3rd generation of Hatchers in the Colonies.

It is believed that Joshua Curtis was of English descent and served first as an Ensign and later as Lieutenant during the Revoluntionary War. He was born about 1732 and died in Davidson County, TN in 1818. His wife was Mary Clark. Many of his descendants lived in Wilkes County, North Carolina, Tennessee and Indiana. http://www.fmoran.com/wilkes/curtis.html

Teresa De Rios Research Notes: Hi Tony,
Yes, Benjamin Ward did married Celia Stewart, dau of John Stewart and Susanna Tanner (married in Chesterfield CO VA probably ca 1748-1750).  The Ward family in TN possess a family Bible.  I have seen a letter written by John Stewart born ca 1728, in Pittsylvania CO VA dated 1774. He is writing to his father and mother (John Stewart born ca 1700, married Mary Bowman in Henrico CO Dec 1720, dau of Edward Bowman), who were living in Nottaway Parrish, Amelia CO VA (now Nottaway CO VA).  He tells of his daughter Celia marrying Benjamin Ward and moving to NC.  He also mentions one son had died by drowning and mentions other children, says his wife is very ill (Susanna Tanner Stewart).  John and Susanna find themselves in the newly created, Henry CO VA in 1778 and are on tax lists there until the part he own land to is Franklin CO VA.  John also own land in Bedford CO VA near the Franklin Co Line.  His brother Daniel is also in the same neighborhood and later his brother "Littleberry" joins them.
Benjamin Ward, to my understanding is the half brother of Daniel Ward of Franklin CO VA.  Benjamin, Daniel Ward along with John Stewart and son and a Peter BLANKENSHIP are together in a 1774 Pittsylvania CO VA tithe list. They were all neighbors. 
I cannot say  this is my line, most likely not.  DNA has been done, but it´s been hard to prove this John Stewart line as he moved with his brother Daniel and kids to Rowan CO NC by 1789.  Daniel and his brother John left no known will, and really there are not estate papers to find, we have tried very hard.
Now , Micheal ISRAEL is related to us through marriage  . This would be Lee´s direct line through my Stewart line.. Micheal Israel of Albemarle CO moved to Wilkes CO NC, along came a Ballowe/Ballou, Fields, Eppersons.   Michael Israel´s son Johnston Israel, had a daughter named Sarah, who married Edward Stewart born 1780, son of Nathaniel Stewart and Mary Bledsoe.  Edward had no issue. The Israel family moved to Buncombe CO NC by abt 1790, and we hook up with them about 1810. 

HATCHER goes way back to a Steward line in Henrico CO VA,. a John Steward known as "John Steward, the Glover", married the widow Susanna Burton, nee Hatcher. No issue with Steward, they were in they´re 40´s when the marriage too place. I´d imagine John was a widower, and had kids prior to his married to Susanna Hatcher Burton.  He drop from thin air and not much info is on him.    

The WARD_STEWART connection goes back to the late 1600´s, with one female Stewart marrying a WARD, believe she was a dau of John Stewart JR born ca 1670 and wife Michelle Ballowe.  This John Stewart JR was the son of John Steward SR born ca 1634 England,came to VA abt 1668, married  a Dorothy (LNU), no will, probably destroyed.
> Back to Hatcher, I think they have more connection to John The Glover Stewart´s line. It is thought that one of his son´s was an EDWARD who married Martha Hatcher.  This Hatcher line was connected with the CHEATHAMS , KNIBB families.  Teresa From: lilliebelle3@yahoo.com

Notes: Cheathams connect to me and Pegs lines as does a Blankenship line of Humphreys Co. Tn

Hi Tony,
> Not much is known of the brother in law of Daniel Boone: John Stewart.  John Stewart was killed by Indians in what is now  KY abt 1769.  I believe a marriage bond was found in Rowan CO NC where John Stewart did marry Hannah Boone , Feb 14 1764.  All Boone researchers state Hannah and John only had girls.  But, we have a couple of people in the Stewart DNA project that claim John Stewart did have a son named William Boone Stewart born ca 1764-1769.  Wm Boone Stewart moved to the same county in KY that the Boone´s later move to.  Hannah Boone, relict of John Stewart was made admix of the estate of John Stewart. It must have been all personal estate, as John Stewart never owned land that I or anyone else could find. He may have lived with Hannah´s father on his farm,. who knows. Or he could have rented out land from someone else, but he would have still had to pay taxes on that leased land. I don´t have personal

> property or land tax lists for Rowan CO NC.   Oh, by the way, the personal estate of John Stewart was very small.   Hannah Boone Stewart, relict of John then marries Richard Pennington, see Wilkes CO NC census for 1790.  Most of all of her daughters with John Stewart marry, and if my memory serves me right, the OSBOURNE family intermarried with her daughter´s. Do not confuse this Osbourne line with the one from Henrico CO. They were from New Jersey.  It is still very much up in the air as to if Hannah and John Stewart had a son, like I said all the Boone researchers say, only daughters.  I don´t know who this John Stewart was, where he came from etc. nor do I know if he had siblings in Rowan CO. It is a very elusive line to research. He may have come down from PA, as many did from Rowan CO NC. 
> As for the Ward line, yes, they intermarried at least 3 times with Stewart´s , going back to either very late 1600´s or early 1700´s, before 1710.   John Stewart and Susanna Tanner did have a daughter named Selah/Celia who married Benjamin Ward, half brother of Daniel Ward of Franklin CO VABenj Ward and wife did move to what became Ashe or Watuaga CO NC by abt 1774 or 1775, they lived in the wilderness as this area was not populated by many white folks at this time.  Selah Ward Stewart had a sister named Mary Bomwan Stewart that married a Dr Ward and lived in TN, no issue from this marriage that I am aware of.   If you need more info on this Ward line in TN, I would contact Charles Ward, I have his email address if you need it. He is a very good WARD researcher and we have worked together before unraveling the Stewart lines.  I also have email address of the people from the William Boone Stewart line, but in my
> humble opinion, they have not researched Rowan CO NC, only KY .  I know William Boone Stewart did have a son named James Stewart that married Tabitha BRAINE in KY.  I am going on memory here, so some things my be a bit off.  One other thing, I don't think John Stewart "did much writing" in Rowan Co, that´s why there is little to nothing on his presence there. I believe his time was spent as a long hunter and explorer with the Boone family and others.  You are aware that Daniel Boone and family did live for a time in VA right? I believe it may have been the Frederick CO VA area of Shenandoah Valley.

Notes: Yadkin River Baptist Church is where Thomas Fields was the recorder prior to the arrival of the Boones

Notes: The Wards, Hatcher, Tanner families all connect back to Wards Creek and are very intermarried: Of Note Ben Hatcher Sr. and Jr witnessed the will of John Watson in 1707 Henrico Co Va. John Watson is the father in law of Michael Johnson died 1718 on Tuckahoe Creek and Matching DNA to mine and Pegs Hudson Johnson of Barton’s Creek.

ANNA CURTIS is believed to have been born in 1771 to Joshua Curtis and Mary Sarah Clark of Wilkes County, NC. She is believed to have married DANIEL WARD, son of Benjamin and Selah Stewart Ward of Ashe County, NC, circa 1800, though no clear proof has been found to date though this researcher continues to search for one. Anna had eight children and forty-nine grandchildren. She spent her final years with her daughter, Phebe Ward Shull, and probably died 1850-1860 at Watauga County, NC.

Lennis Isaacs wrote in These My People - Wards of Watauga County the following: Daniel Ward: It is not known for sure but tradition has it that DANIEL WARD married ANNA CURTIS. This may well be true for there was a family of Curtiss' living here about that time. DANIEL moved to Powells Valley, according to the way LUTHER WARD remembered hearing his history, and made an herb doctor and lived to be 110 years old. He had a daughter, PHOEBE WARAD, that married PHILLIP SHULL and it may be that DANIEL came back to Watauga to live when he was old as some records show that DANIEL was in Watauga in 1850 and was 80 years old at that time."

In 1810 DANIEL WARD was enumerated in Ashe County, North Carolina with 3 male children under age 10 born 1800-1810. Daniel was age 26-45 (born 1765-1844). Two female children under age 10 are in the household, and an adult female age 26-45. [Census Records, Ashe Co., NC, 1810] The adult female is probably his wife, ANNA CURTIS, daughter of JOSHUA CURTIS and MARY SARAH CLARK of Wilkes County, North Carolina. No marriage record has been found to date for Anna Curtis and Daniel Ward by this researcher.

NSDAR records for Joshua Curtis indicate that he had a daughter Anna Curtis who married a Mr. Ward. Family tradition supports that the Mr. Ward was Daniel Ward. In 1850 Anna Ward is enumerated with Daniel Ward's daughter, Phebe Shull, in Watauga County, North Carolina.] Joshua Curtis is a documented citizen of Wilkes County, North Carolina and a patriot of the American Revolution. His son, Samuel Curtis, lived near the Ward family in Ashe County.

In 1830 Daniel Ward sold land in Carter County, Tennessee to his son-in-law, Phillip Shull, with the stipulation that if either of his sons, John or William Ward, desired to repurchase the land when attaining age twenty-one that they would have the right to do so. Daniel Ward removed to Lee County, Virginia with his sons, Samuel, William, and daughter, Celia. Between 1840 and 1845 DANIEL WARD removed to Lee County, Virginia to live with his son, WILLIAM WARD, along with daughter, CELIA WARD. Anna Ward is not believed to have accompanied DANIEL, SAMUEL, WILLIAM, and CELIA WARD to Virginia. She presumably removed to Watauga County, NC to live with her daughter, Phebe Ward Shull, for reasons unknown at this time.

Notes: Lee County is a border County of Hawkins Co. Tn

ANNA WARD was found in the household of PHILIP and PHEBE SHULL on 3 October 1850 as indicated in the US Census for Watauga, Watauga County, NC that lists PHILLIP and PHEBE SHULL as residents in Household # 519 on page 71 as follows: PHILLIP SHULL, age 53, born 1797, NC, farmer with $1500 real property; PHEBE SHULL, age 48, born 1802, NC; MATILDA SHULL, age 26, born 1824, TN; THOMAS SHULL, age 22, born 1828, farmer with $100, born in TN; RODA SHULL, age 20, born 1830, TN; TEMPERANCE SHULL, age 19, born 1831, TN; SARAH SHULL, age 16, born 1834, TN; WILLIAM SHULL, age 16, born 1834, TN; CAROLINE SHULL, age 12, born 1838, NC; SIMON SHULL, age 9, born 1841, NC; JOSEPH SHULL, age 8, born 1842, NC; SOPHINA SHULL, age 4, born 1846, NC; and ANNA WARD, age 78, born 1772, NC, she could not read nor write. (No relations were given in this census record.)

ANNA WARD was not found in the 1860 US Census Records in Watauga, North Carolina, nor was she living with DANIEL WARD, SAMUEL WARD, WILLIAM WARD, or CELIA WARD in Lee County, Virginia according to census records in both counties, nor was she found living with any of her other children.

A family history of JOSHUA CURTIS of Wilkes County, North Carolina indicate that he was married to MARY SARAH CLARK (parents unknown). Joshua and his wife raised a large family in Wilkes County. Joshua Curtis removed from Wilkes County, North Carolina to Davidson County, North Carolina where he died in 1818. Joshua served as a Naval Officer, Ensign, and Lieutenant in the American Revolution according to NSDAR records. He had a large family: William Curtis married Edy Cottrell; Rebecca Curtis married Mr. Cottrell; Rachel Curtis; Mary "Polly" Curtis; Samuel Curtis married Susannah Cottrell (of Wilkes County, NC); Joshua Curtis, Jr. md Nancy Cottrell (removed to Indiana); Nancy Curtis md John Henry Stonecipher; Phoebe Curtis md Samuel Stonecipher; Susanna Curtis (died at Marion County, Kentucky) md Ezra Stonecipher (died at Illinois). The NSDAR records indicate that his daughter, ANNA CURTIS, married MR. WARD. The family history cited in the Heritage of Wilkes County confirms this information. However, the NSDAR disputes certain parts of this record.

Anna Curtis Ward is probably buried in Watauga County, North Carolina near her daughter, Phebe, and her family. DANIEL WARD in 1877 died at Rocky Station, Lee County, Virginia in the home of son, SAMUEL WARD, and was buried in what is now known as the Ward-Lawson Cemetery above present-Stickleyville on the SAMUEL WARD homeplace. His gravestone has been destroyed. Their 5th-great-granddaughter, Brenda Keck Reed, had a memorial stone crafted and placed in the Jonathan Ward Cemetery in his memory.
