My Notes: This is mine and Pegs. Boone families married into the McElyea Families

Isaac Wilcockson, born 1749 in Berks Co., PA; died 1783 in TN. He married Ruth Johnston

David Willcockson, born 1794 in Rowan Co., NC. He married Nancy Johnson

1751 Era: Just when the first Friends came to this “majestic wilderness” is unknown, but certainly there were a few here by 1751. That year Friends at Cane Creek in present Alamance County, comprising the first permanent meeting settled by the Pennsylvania Friends in North Carolina, requested a monthly meeting from the Perquimans and Little River meetings in eastern Carolina. Their petition stated: “There is Thirty Families and upwards of Friends settled in them Parts and Desire still in behalf of themselves and their Friends to have a Monthly Meeting settled amongst them.” Not surprisingly, the first piece of business to come before Cane Creek Monthly Meeting (October 7, 1751) was a request from Friends of New Garden for permission to hold a meeting for worship.

1752 ERA Isaac Holeman (spelling of the name varies) as proved by his signature--moved about 1752 from Virginia, where he undoubtedly associated with the Holeman settlement in the Shenandoah valley, to the enterprising of the North Carolina colony; so the latter state, where he settled permanently stands out conspicuously by way of background. That he brought along His father and mother, whose first names, unluckily. are unrecorded, and when they died, buried them on his own land, produces eight generations as

computed from the last offspring of today. Afterwards two of his younger brothers, William and James Holeman, followed him to North Carolina, and together they established another Holeman settlement. The three obtained
Iand-grants in that part of the then enormous Rowan County which was subsequently set aside as Davie county, and there they lived on adjoining plantations located among the foothills of the Brushy mountains, on the head waters of both Bear Creek and Dutchman's creek.

As adherents of the sect called "Missionary Baptist," both he and his wife belonged to the Bear Creek Baptist Church, one of the oldest religious organizations in that section, with its meeting-house built on what was then called the Holeman road; while the names of their posterity, even to the present generation, have been regularly enrolled on its books. Though he continuously lived in the extreme northwestern corner of what is now Davie county, with Mocksville as county-seat, where he eventually acquired his permanent abode, he bought and sold, in the meantime, several other tracts of land in that region. http://listsearches.rootsweb.com/th/read/NCSURRY/2007-04/1177535485

Isaac Holeman

On October 10,1783, he acquired,his third grant of 300 acres, No. 339 (Deed Book 9, page 339}, described as on the waters of Hunting Creek," being in the part of Rowan county that became Iredell county; and this he sold in 1798 to Benjamin Johnson.

#1753 Rowan County formed from Anson County.

Rowan County was a large undefined section of the northwestern part of our state and was formed from Anson County The space between the Yadkin and South Yadkin Rivers that is part of Rowan County and as far west as the current Wilkes County, is known as the Forks of the Yadkin. http://www.ncvisitorcenter.com/Davie.html

In 1753 Alexander Cathey was a Justice of the Peace in Salisbury, NC.

He presided over the first courts of Rowan County which were held in 1755.

He was a friend and neighbor of Squire Boone, father of the famous Daniel Boone.

He is buried near Salisbury in the Thyatira Cemetery, formerly Catheys Meeting House; his monument states “Alexander Cathey who died 1766, age 59 years.” Most of the Cathey clan migrated from Rowan to Mecklenburg County, NC, before the American Revolution.
Alexander Cathey
Some of the line arrived in Cecil Co. MD  with the name of JOHN CATHEY b. 1685 Ulster Ireland. 

he arrived between 1746-1751 and they moved from MD into Lancaster Co. PA in early 1730's.

By 1743 the Cathey name is found in Beverly Manor in Augusta Co. VA.

JAMES CATHEY had migrated to ANSON CO. NC by late 1740s'.

That land became ROWAN CO. NC by 1753. 

The Cathey Settlement or IRISH SETTLEMENT was located west of Salisbury NC and where James Cathey was in 1749. 

His sons moved into Mecklenburg Co. and Haywood Co. NC by late 1700's.

Archibald Cathey is the only one of his siblings to have been listed born in GA.  

His father, Andrew Cathey was born in abt. 1721 PA and his sister, Rebecca G. Cathey b. 15 Sept. 1792 in NC. 

By 1799, Archibald Cathey is listed being born in GA. http://www.argenweb.net/boone/dunehew.html

William Hopper

Wm. Hopper lived near the NC/VA State line,owning land on both sides. They first lived on Matrimony Creek, a branch of the Dan River, in North Carolina and later some lived on smith River in Henry County, VA.
William surveyed in Rockingham County, then Rowan County, in 1753.

By 1783 he had died, all of his sons owned adjoining on Matrimony Creek in present Rockingham Co.,North Carolina.
The following are believed to be his surviving sons in the area William Hopper Jr.; Darby Hopper; Joseph Hopper; Joshua Hopper and Thomas Hopper

Matrimony Creek starts in Henry County, VA. and flows south into Rockingham City, NC. It empties into the Dan River near the the western city limits of Eden, NC. It was given it's name in 1728 by a member of William Byrd's surveying party,as they were establishing the VA. -NC. border. Several small branches that flow into it along the way are known as Matrimony Creek as well. There are a LOT of Hopper's in the area.

Jonathan Wiseman

1754 moved to Rowan county:1749 April 13 Colonial Council at New Bern granted l,000 acres in Anson co to Andrew, Leonard, and John Killion. This was on Killion’s Creek. 1754 he moved to Rowan county because of the Cherokee uprising. 1764 sold 1152 acres on Killians’ creek. http://genforum.genealogy.com/clubb/messages/581.html

Leonard Killian

Sept l749 Leonard Killian granted 590 acres of land on Killians. Creek

This is what is in "The North Carolina Gazetter" by William S. Powell page 277.
Leepers Creek is formed by the junction of Sawmill and Lippard creeks in ne Lincoln County. It flows se into Gaston County where it joins Killian Creek to form Dutchmans Creek. Appears as Leepers Creek on the Collet map 1770.
Lippard Creek rises in s Catawba County and flows into Lincoln County where it joins Sawmill Creek to form Leepers Creek.
I have earlier deeds than 1770 and Leepers Creek and Kuykendall Creek is shown there as two different creeks both running parallel to a point where they flow into Dutchman Creek. lMap by Elmer O. Parker "Approximate Boundaries of Mecklenburg County (N.C.) 1763-1769" http://genforum.genealogy.com/kuykendall/messages/3482.html

Sept l749 Leonard Killian granted 590 acres of land on Killians. Creek

April 13, 1749 Regular Colonial Council held at New Bern, in the petition for land in Anson County, Andrew Killian and his two sons, Leonard and John, were “granted” 1000 acres each. http://www.co.catawba.nc.us/library/gen/History%20of%20the%20Killian%20Family%20in%20NC.htm
The tracts of land that these three Killians entered from l749-54 were in that part of Anson County, which is now Lincoln County, near Beatty’s, Ford on the Catawba River. The Killian’s Creek mentioned was named after this family; for on this stream pioneer Andrew Killian built his home where he remained until the latter half of the year 1754. At that time the Cherokee Indians began hostilities against the white settlers of that section, and had some fighting with the Forneys. Then he (Andrew Killian) moved across the Catawba River into Rowan County. Nothing is known of the whereabouts of this Killian family from 1754 to 1766, but in 1766 Andrew and John were residents of Rowan County. http://www.co.catawba.nc.us/library/gen/History%20of%20the%20Killian%20Family%20in%20NC.htm

William Sherrill, also of Anson had been granted 400 acres on April 5, 1749. http://www.co.catawba.nc.us/library/gen/History%20of%20the%20Killian%20Family%20in%20NC.htm

September 30, 1749, Andrew, Leonard, and John Killian, and William and Abington Sherrill were granted large tracts of land. About all of the above named land grants can be found in the Land Grant Office at Raleigh. In 1750, grants for land were issued to Henry Weidner, Daniel Warlick, Peter Broyl (supposed to be Peter Hoyle), John Batey, the Sherrils, and Leonard Killian; but the petition from George Hager was delayed until the next Council. These grants, relative to the Killians read “on the south side of the Catawba River.” The Killian grants after 1749 read “On Killian’s Creek”, some of which grants date 1750-54. http://www.co.catawba.nc.us/library/gen/History%20of%20the%20Killian%20Family%20in%20NC.htm
June 22, 1766 Andrew Killian and his son, John, bought several hundred acres of land on both sides of Clark’s Creek, west of St. Paul Church in what is now Catawba County, above and below what is known as the Bollinger Ford http://www.co.catawba.nc.us/library/gen/History%20of%20the%20Killian%20Family%20in%20NC.htm
George Killian, the 6th of Daniel Killian, Sr., was born May 6, 1802, and died May 1, 1880. On March 29, 1831, Daniel Ki1lian, Sr., conveyed to his son George 196-acres of land on Beaver Dam Creek. George was married about the year l830 to a Miss Polly Johnson, who was born in 1812 and died in 1885. He moved from the Beaver Dam section in the early 1860’s to Oconee County, South Carolina, about ten miles North of the Town of Walha11a. George had three boys: Julius, Daniel W. (Dr. Dan), and Elbert. George also had four daughters: Adelaide, the oldest girl, never married; Clarice, who married William Hodses, who was killed in the War between the States; Marian, who married Branch Trull of Haywood County, and raised a large family mostly boys; and Julia, the youngest girl, who married John Dryman at the age of 36. They had four boys: Rob, Roy, Fred and Earl. Fred is a Methodist Minister of the Asheville Section. George’s oldest son, Julius, married and moved to Clay County, where he lived all his life. His oldest son was named Lee H. and his youngest, Dock. http://www.co.catawba.nc.us/library/gen/History%20of%20the%20Killian%20Family%20in%20NC.htm


The late Rev. Julius H. Shuford makes the following statement relative to the Killian family: "The Killians are an ancient family and can be traced hack lo the year 1537. During the time when Martin Luther undertook the Reformation of the Church in Germany, there was one John Killian, a licentiate (one licensed to preach or practice a profession) in the Eufort College, who took a very active part in that great movement and made himself very conspicuous in the eyes of Luther's enemies." It is therefore about 400 years since the name Killian first appeared in History.\par \par \tab The next time we hear of this name was in America. Rupp's list of 30,000 immigrants shows that on October 4, 1732 Andreas (Andrew) Killian, a native of the Rhenish Palatinate, landed in Philadelphia on the British ship "Adventure." He must have been a person above average in education as he signed his name io the declaration of allegiance to the Colonial Government, while many of his fellow passengers could only make their mark. By comparing his signature on a photostatic copy of the page on which he signed his name and the signature on a will made by an Andrew Killian (see files of old wills in Clerk's office in Lincolnton, N. C.)
Jean, the 4th child of pioneer Andrew Killian, was probably born about 1727-28. She married William Lewin (Lawing). The Lawings and the Hagers were early settlers in the Beatty's Ford section, and were close neighbors, for the times, to the Killians. The Lawlng family name appears in the early history of the Hager family written by A. Nixon,Esq. William Lawlng is supposed to have been a close relative to Simon Hager's first wife-- probably her father or older brother.

    Mr. John A. Lawing of Charlotte, N. C. gives me much history of the Lawing or Lawings, and in all probability this William and Jean Lawlng (Lewin) were his ancestors. Their oldest son was named Andrew, which sounds like he was named after pioneer Andrew Killian. This Andrew Lawing married, first, Obedience (Biddey) Bradshaw, and the second marriage was to Elizabeth Philips in 19l3 in Lincoln County.

Andrew Lawing had seven sons and two daughters. The Military Census of 1790 gives a Wm. Lawlng with a family of three men, 16 years of age and upwards, one under 16 and five females.

    The Census also gives an Andrew Lawing with one male 16 years and up and four females. It appears that Joseph, John, Andrew, Jr., and Samuel were sons of Andrew Lawing. Joseph Lawing married Mary Moore in 1840, Lincoln County. Their son, Gidson Alex Lawing, married Mary Jane Vance (both born in 1848) in 1866, ad their son John T. A. Lawing, my informant of the Lawing family, was first married to Lillie L. Ramsay of Burke County in 1893 and had eight children--6 boys and 2 girls. John T. A. Lawing married the second time in 1913---Myra Goodman of China Grove- and they have three boys and four girls.

    Andrew and Biddey Bradshaw Lawing's son John was born in 1790, and was a soldier in tile war of 1812, as also his brother Andrew Jr., born in 1793 was a war of 1812 soldier--both were enlisted from Mecklenburg County. John had three sons (John died before 1844 when his mother, Biddey, wife of Andrew Lawing 1st, made her will--she died in 1846): ANDREW K.; JOHN JOHNSON (born 1814); James J. John's wife was Nancy Johnson. After her husband John Lawing died, she married a Scott. John Johnson Lawing moved to Middle Tennessee and married.http://www.fortunecity.com/millennium/bluepeter/1081/publications/killian_history_by_yates_killian/book.htm

He served out his term of service of three months and was at the Battle of Stone, South Carolina. Whe he was honorably discharged about three fourths of a mile from the battle ground a few days after the battle by Captain White in the Rifle Company in ----- Regiment.

He received no commission but was a private soldier. On his own account as to his character he refers to his neighbors, John Walker, Kit Walker and David Caloun who are now present.

Roger Turner, 74 years of age, resident of Perry County, states upon oath in open court that he knew the above John Hall in the Revolutionary War. He knows he served in the campaign of Kings Mountain as by him stated. He also knows he served in other trips in the militia but how long does not know. From his general character he has no doubt his statement is true.

It is not surprising to find the first settlers of our county to be Quakers from Pennsylvania. In the year of 1738, Isaac, Isaac Junior, and Joseph Cloud, of Chester county, Pennsylvania, made several entries for land along Banister River, where they first made their homes. They later moved westward to what is now Patrick County, then to North Carolina and Tennessee. In 1740, Daniel and Gideon Smith patented lands along with the Clouds, and it was probably from these two hardy hunters that Smith Mountain and Smith River took their names. http://www.myvirginiagenealogy.com/va_county/pi.htm

Thomas Shipp affidavit in John Martin file describes service under Capt. Cloud in September 1780. Near the Broad River John Martin and Thomas Lankford were out from headquarters ranging to discover Tories when Martin was wounded in the head by Tories who lay in ambush. Lankford made his escape and left Martin. The Tories took their horses and Martin's gun and left Martin lying for dead, but he came to himself and returned to camp. John Deatherage picked the shot out of Martin's head where they had penetrated through his hat and skin in his temples. Martin was carried home with attendants as a guard. Martin was in the service nine weeks when he returned home. But our army proceeded on pursuit of an army of British and Tories and in a few days after we overhauled them, killed and took them all at Kings Mountain and then marched the prisoners to old Moravian Town, then in Surry County.
