part of Guilford Co that later became Rockingham Co, NC. He was preparing to move his family, with the help of his brother in Charlotte Co, to NC when he heard that Genl. Nathaniel Greene had been forced to retreat from Ninety Six, SC, to Jennings Ferry on the Dan River in Virginia. He made arrangements with his brother to move his family while he entered a rifle company under Capt. Wm. Morse. He was in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in 1781. He was discharged some time later. Again in 1781, he served in a company of Light Horse under Capt. Richard Verrnon and also served in an expedition against the Cherokee Indians under Capt. John Leak in the regiment of Maj. Joseph Cloud.

George Joyce moved from Rockingham Co, NC to Bullitt Co, KY in 1806. His discharge papers were left with his brother-in-law, Thomas Cardwell. George Joyce applied for a pension in Bullitt Co, KY 17 Aug 1835 and died one month later. The pension was awarded and his children paid the sum of $20 per annum, retroactive to 4 Mar 1831.

George Joyce is found on the 1800 Stokes Co, NC census. His children, named in the pension application, were: Thomas, Richard, Alexander, George, Sarah, Delisha, Mary and Delila. A Bible record of one of his sons also names two older children, Elizabeth and William (Brenda Jerome’s ancestor). It is believed that Elizabeth and William stayed in NC, while the rest of the children went to Bullitt Co, KY.

My Notes this is the Joseph Cloud families of Dan River and of Hawkins Co. Tn
The Following is taken from Rootsweb.com on known persons who came from Pa and died in Henry CO. Va:

#1: Joseph Cloud abt 1710 married to Nancy Moore b abt 1721 parents are Joseph Cloud and Ruth Jervis note of interest is he and Nancy married in Anson County NC

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

Notes: John Little

There is a detailed account of this company in "Capt. Samuel Cobrin's Company of Militia: The First Settlers of Lincoln and Gaston Counties" published by Dr. Robert W. Ramsey Ph. D.  This area was then in the confines of the newly formed Anson Co., which was formed in 1747. This list of 79 men includes the progenitors of the oldest families in that area. Among these men listed are Henry and Adam Sides. From Dr. Ramsey's account is the following: "Henrich and Adam Seitz were both under 21 years of age upon arrival in Philadelphia aboard the Queen Elizabeth in 1738. Sometime before reaching the Carolinas, Adam learned the tailor's trade. He settled on Leeper's Creek in modern Lincoln County, four miles north of Peter Oster. Henry Seitz lived on Killian's Creek, 5 miles northeast of Adam." http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~seitzfam/_private/early_catawba_seitz_of_nc.htm



Henry Jonston was in 1750 Anson Co NC Capt. Samuel Corbins List: some of these folks are from Augusta Co Va just as Leumel Sanders was. Lots of Folks on Capt Samuel Corbins List settled on Leepers Creek and Killian Creek, and are still in the SAME neighborhood. Researcher Tony L. Johnson

Samel Cobrin,

Andrew Hampton and the members of the Kuykendall family by names of Peter, James, Abraham and John show up as members of the Cobrin Company, North Carolina Militia of Captain Samuel Corbin. In the fall issue of Johnson's NC Genealogy Magazine for 1967, an article was submitted by the late Dr. Robert W. Ramsey dealing with the Cobrin Company. Dr. Ramsey's book on page 1932 of the Johnson NC Genealogy Magazine, listed 56 members of Captain Cobrin's Militia that are known to have settled in present-day Lincoln and Gaston Counties, of North Carolina. On the following page 1933, by a map of the area, Ramsey locates the 56 members. Hampton and the Kuykendalls are shown on the branches of Dutchman's Creek, above the Tuckasege Ford of the Catawba River.

The article by Ramsey identifies Samuel Cobrin as one of the five sons of James Cobrin, a flourishing Indian Trader, in the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania in 1724. By 1734, the father James Cobron was in the Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania and by 1748 he was shown as having died in the northern end of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. http://buloandsusiebriggs.homestead.com/files/the_andrew_hampton_stories.doc
Origin of the men on the Corbin list. (p l928, l929 Ramsey’s article) Of known background 33 were from Pennsylvania, ll from Shenandoah and five from Maryland. http://genforum.genealogy.com/clubb/messages/581.html

RESEARCH NOTES: George Washington Payne married Nancy dtr of Enos C. Hooper, Dr.(matching DNA of Cousin David Hooper of Humphreys Co. Tn)

Researcher:David S. Payne (otime1@yahoo.com)

David and Tony,
I am related through marriage to John Payne , died 1773 Pittsylvania CO VA, married a Hannah. John Payne made his will in 1771 and mentions wife Hannah, sons: John Payne JR, Mark Payne, David Payne, Edmond Payne and his wife had a child named Stephen by the time his will was recorded in 1773.

David Payne and Stephen Payne move to Henry CO VA and nearby Surry CO NC on Stewart´s Creek.  David Payne was our next door neighbor, and there is an old Payne cemetery on my GGGGG grandfather´s land (John Stewart SR) in VA. 

David Payne´s son Edmond Payne had 2 children who married Stewart girls and they intermarried up to the 1900´s.   This line has participated in the Payne DNA project.  A man named Bob Juch has a web site and has my John Payne there , but he has it all mixed up.  It is thought we came from one of the Northern Neck lines, we use the name Barnett Payne over and over again.  There was more than one Payne line (I think) in the Northern Neck.   The Poindextors went to Surry CO NC also. My cousin Romaine Stewart Poindexter still has old Stewart land in Carroll CO VA near the Surry CO NC line and her great grandmother was a Payne, so we her GG grandmother. All married to Stewart´s.

+ 53 vi Richard Alexander 4 Cathey [6460], born abt. 1745/50 in Anson Co, NC. He married Elizabeth Giles [6464]. (R.A. CATHEY was a gunsmith and soldier)

 

NOTES:


 

E. H. Cathey (2002) writes that Alexander Cathey, born 1707, married Elizabeth Pinkney.

He appears in the Cumberland Valley in 1734.

EHC speculates that Alexander, an indentured servant, met and married Ms Pinkney when he and his master were located near Annapolis, MD.

Later, in the McFarland neighborhood on Conodoguinet Creek (near the present day Pennsylvania Turnpike, I-76), Alexander lived across the creek from his uncle James Cathey.

It is believed that Alexander left Lancaster Co., PA, for Virginia after his father’s death.

 

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.

 

Heritage of Rowan County, NC, Vol. 1, 1991: Alexander Cathey is described as “a typical Scots; he was loud, rowdy, hard-working, loved his family and liked a good drink and a good fight.”



Maury County TN History and Families” (Turner Publ., 1998), p. 222: John Cathey, born in Ulster, Ireland, came with his family to Lancaster County, PA, where his will was recorded in 1742.

His son, Alexander, is the progenitor of the Maury County branch of the Cathey family.

Alexander (b. 1707 in Ulster, Ire.) married Mary Elizabeth Pinckney.

After his father’s death, his family traveled down the Great Wagon Road, stopping for a short time in Augusta County, VA, before they journeyed on to Rowan county, NC. ..

Alexander was a leader of the Cathey (Scots-Irish) settlement in Rowan County.

He died in 1766 and is buried in the Thyatira (Old Cathey Meeting House) Church cemetery in Rowan County.


The children of Alexander and Mary Elizabeth Pinckney were:

John Cathey,

James Cathey,

William Cathey,

Richard Cathey,

Margare Cathey t, and

Alice Cathey.

Nine years after the death of Alexander Cathey, the Revolutionary War started. This writer has not documented a service record for John Cathey, but William Cathey served as a Major and James Cathey served as a Captain during the war. Richard served in the NC Militia. William received a land grant for 4,000 acres of land on the south side of Duck River in Tennessee Territory, and James Cathey received 2,000 acres of land in West Tennessee.

Richard Cathey was also granted land in Tennessee.

Before James Cathey died in NC in 1791, he traded his land to his brother, William Cathey, for 2,000 acres of land on Duck River so that their children could be neighbors in the new land.

The Cathey brothers started disposing the land their father had left them and looked westward to Tennessee Territory. By 1800 there was but one Cathey family on the Federal Census for Rowan County. {Much of the Cathey data came from Boyt H. Cathey}”
Sergen George Heger,

George Heger (William is 2 away from Clubb on the military list) along with his kinsman William probably came from western Maryland or Pennsylvania originally, removed to Carolina from the Shenandoah Valley where in l749 he was cited as not found. In l753 the two Hagers were granted 800 acres of land on waters of Killian’s Creek in the eastern
