ALLSTON, ALSTON, EDWARDS, RIVES posted by Bebe on Tuesday, June 23, 1998

I am interested in the Edwards family.

Thomas Henry RIVES lived for awhile on the Nutbush in Warren. An old letter at NC Archives and repeated in The ALSTON'S and ALLSTON'S of North and South Carolina by Joseph Groves regarding the Rives family makes mention of the EDWARDS family across the creek. Thomas Henry Rives had been in Mecklinburg Cty., Va. prior to Warren but after Warren he removed to and died in Chatham Cty., NC in 1809. He was born in Va. ca1740. He m. first a Neal and 2nd Mary EDWARDS ca1769.

MORGAN posted by Harriet Houston on Tuesday, June 23, 1998

Joshua MORGAN m Elizabeth Clay in Mecklenburg Co VA, where they lived; the last record of them there is 1996. Their sons Samuel b1794, Rolly, Carey first show up in TN in 1817. There is some evidence that Joshua served in the NC Militia during the War of 1812 - so because of this and the proximity of Meck. Co VA to Warren Co NC, I am hoping that someone can help me find him.

BOOTH, BULL, BUTE, DICKERSON, GARROTT, HARPER, HUNT, NELMS, THOMAS, WINSTON posted by Jerry Hunt on Tuesday, June 23, 1998

Surnames being searched by Jerry A. HUNT are as follows:

NELMS, Anna m.BOOTH, George Conway, a Rev. War Vet. in Warren Co. NC in 1791. They moved on to Rutherford Co. TN.

BULL, Rebecca m.HARPER, William abt 1793 in Warren Co. NC They moved on to Sumner Co. TN. Have NO IDEA of Rebecca BULLs parents!

DICKERSON, Margaret m.GARROTT, Thomas abt 1770 in BUTE Co. NC. They moved on to Wake Co. NC, then line moved to Gibson Co. TN. Have NO IDEA of Margaret DICKERSONs parents.

THOMAS, Sarah m.WINSTON, Isaac in (I think) BUTE Co. NC. Sarah THOMAS d.Bute Co. abt 1773. These families probably spilled over into Franklin Co. as well.

Another set of THOMAS-WINSTON families comes from an Athanatius THOMAS and Gilly WINSTON marriage, but these families are recorded in Franklin Co.

CHEEK, COLCLOUGH, DURHAM, HAIL, MOODY, MYRICK, NEWELL, ROBINSON posted by James Newell on Tuesday, June 23, 1998

In my researching of the Newell surname I have hit a roadblock in Warren Co., North Carolina during late 1700's. My Great Great Grandfather, Camp Plummer NEWELL, was born in Wake Co., North Carolina, November 11, 1797, and died, June 12, 1877, Carroll County, Mississippi. I believe that Camp was the son of Peter Newell and Susanna Durham HAIL (Haile, Hale), daughter William DURHAM and Margaret COLCLOUGH. They were married on 11-9-1795.

I have located a NEWELL family in Warren County who I believe are ancestors of Peter. John Newell, Sr., and wife Lucy had 8 Children:

1. Elizabeth Newell - married a ROBINSON
2. William Newell
3. Rebecca Newell - married William MYRICK
4. John Newell
5. Edward Newell - married Sally MOODY
6. David Hyde Newell - married Nancy CHEEK
7. Sally Newell
8. Polly Hyde Newell

I believe Peter Newell to be the son of either John Newell or a William Newell but have no proof at this time. Peter and Susanna Newell left Warren Co. around 1810 moving to Kentucky (maybe Green then Simpson Counties).

Camp Plummer NEWELL married married Louise E., maiden name unknown. I have undocumented evidence that they had 3 children:

1. John Durham Newell,
2. Mary Susan Newell
3. James Gatewood Newell.

ALSTON, BOONE, COPELAND, HOWELL, RICHARDSON, SILVER, WOODARD posted by Yvonne Reeves on Tuesday, June 23, 1998

The Richardson'S I am descended from originated in Halifax County. They were free people of color. My great grandmother was Idella RICHARDSON b 1873 in Halifax Co d 1958 Warren Co. She married James ALSTON 1872-1829, a descendant of slaves.

Idella's father, Rufus b 1844 in Halifax, married Mary COPELAND and was the son of Nancy RICHARDSON b 1825 in Halifax. She was the daughter of Absalom b 1790 in Halifax, a blacksmith, and Rhoda RICHARDSON b 1796 in Edgecombe Co.

Absalom shows up in the 1850 Warren Co census. He is the owner of 1 slave. In the 1860 Warren Co census it is reported that he is a blacksmith in Grove Hill. Does anyone know if this was a section of Warren County or the name of a plantation?

Absalom and Rhoda's children:

Nancy (1825-abt 1895)
Hardy (1830-?) mar Mary SILVER
Littleton (1833-?)
I am missing possibly 8 other people that were in the house in the Halifax Co 1840 census.

Nancy's children:

Rufus G. (1844-1921) mar Mary COPELAND
Lucy Ann (1846-bef 1896) mar William H. WOODARD
Ginnie (1849-?) mar James E. HOWELL
Plummer (1852-?)
Alston (1853-?)
I do not know if Nancy was ever married.

Hardy married Mary SILVER; their children:

Sally Ann (1857-?) mar William BOONE
Lawrence (1858-?)
Absalom (1861-?) mar Hixie RICHARDSON
Matilda (1862-?) mar Ricks RICHARDSON
Mary (1864-?) mar James RICHARDSON, II.

It has been very difficult tracing the RICHARDSON'S because most of the records I am looking for are missing. There was a fire at the Halifax Co courthouse that destroyed many records.
